Weaknesses: His barrier can be broken with the "Psyco Wand".
- Black Wave: When hit directly, this can cause a nigh-incurable disease that not even the greatest Espers could cure. The disease seems to instantly drain the target of energy but takes awhile to finally kill.
- Magic Barrier: A barrier than can only be overridden by the Psyco Wand, raises his durability to insane amounts.
- Corrosion: Powerful Earth Magic that lifts the earth from under the target.
- Hewn: Powerful winds strike the foe.
