Standard Equipment: None notable

Intelligence: Skilled and dangerous combatant, otherwise average to above average.

Weaknesses: He's young and inexperienced in actual combat, leading to reckless and foolhardy decisions at times.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Hakuda Master: Yūshirō is the current Head of the House of Shihōin, like his sister before him, and is quite accomplished in the use of his family's fighting style, inflicting a multitude of devastating hits on Askin Nakk Le Vaar within a small frame of time.

Shunpo Expert: While not on the level of his masterful sister, Yūshirō is extremely proficient in Hohō; his Shunpo skill is high enough for him to almost keep up with Yoruichi herself.

Shunko Bakuen Muso

Bakuen Musō

Shunkō (瞬閧, Flash War Cry): An advanced technique which combines Hakuda with Kidō. This technique surrounds his back and arms with pressurized Kidō. The keisen uniform has no back or sleeves because they will rip apart when it is activated. Apart from enhancing his arms and legs for combat, the technique allows him to instantly neutralize an opponent's movement. The Kidō itself can be controlled and fired at opponents from his body, which creates massive explosions. Yūshirō's version of the technique was developed and studied by instruction from his sister Yoruichi within a small amount of time.

  • Shunkō: Bakuen Musō (瞬閧 爆炎無双, Flash War Cry: Exploding Flames Unparalleled): The pressurized Kidō emitted from Yūshirō's back creates a large explosion of concentrated energy, which engulfs his opponent and heavily damages them.
