Notable Attacks / Techniques:
- Sword Technique: Though her training is incomplete, she's among the top swordsmen in her own world. Her swordsmanship is based on what she learned from her master, along with some things she developed on her own.
- Crescent Moon Slash: Counterattack with a slash of the Roukanken.
- Heart Excerpt Slash: Covers great distance to strike at the opponent. Since it aims for the feet, it's a low attack.
- Insightful Sword: Stops direct attacks with Hakurouken and cuts down the opponent with Roukanken. Perhaps Youmu's most powerful attack.
- Lotus Posture Slash: A standard sword-magic technique. It has good range and power, offsetting Youmu's usual strength in melee.
- Lower Realm Reflection Slash: Creates a projectile-reflecting barrier with the Hakurouken. Has no offensive properties but reflects over a wide area.
- Phosphoric Slash: A short-range attack that unleashes a burst of energy from Youmu's sword.
- Preaching Avici: A rare throw move that breaks her stance to grab the opponent.
- Slashing a Flower Upon One's Hand: Jumps above the enemy and slashes down with all her might.
- Spirit Medium's Bind: Sends her ghost-half flying at the enemy. If it hits, it will stay close to the enemy.
- Strange Half-Body: Fires projectiles from her ghost half. The ghost has to recover for a bit, but it's easy enough to use with other attacks.
- Transmigration Slash: A successive attack that develops if you input it multiple times.
- Wicked Soul: Her ghost half glows and attacks.
- Hesitation-Cutting Sword "Slash of Departing from Hesitation": Putting a huge amount of energy into the sword, create an immense sword and mow down everything to the front with immense destructive power. Very hard to dodge.
- Human Oni "Slash of the Eternal Future": Rushing in to cut the enemy, suspend them in midair and dance around them, attacking repeatedly.
- Human Sign "Slash of Present World": Step forward and cut the enemy. It's hard to hit an enemy in the air, but is very powerful in a ground battle.
- Life-Cutting Sword "Slash of Nether Meditation": Using a sword as a medium for destructive power, cuts with a huge sword made of light. A spell based on the power of the sword.
- Reincarnation Sword "Slash of Circular Vicissitude": Deals repeated high-speed hits using Roukanken, and overwhelms the enemy.
- Soul Sign "Wheel of Pain of the Living and Dead": Half the body traces behind the real body, copying its attacks.
- Spirit-Cutting Sword "Slash of Ascension to Buddhahood": Crossing both swords, create a pillar of energy reaching into the sky.
- Sword Skill "Cherry Blossom Flashing": Move forward at high speed, cherry blossoms flashing above her path. A beautiful technique refined from time spent pruning the gardens.
- Voidness Sword "Slash Clearing the Six Senses": Block the enemy's attack with Hakurouken, and then use quick footwork to rush the enemy in this massive attack.
