Akabane is capable of Nullifying Powers, Immortality and even unique traits), Existence Erasure (Can Erase Beings on a Metaphysical Level), Life Manipulation (Suspended the Life Force of Ban so that he won't be erased at all), Fate Manipulation (What imagination shows, determines the fate and in context his imaginations could change fate), Creation (Using Hojutsu one can create Soulless or even Non-Existent beings which use a powerful Logic as a Soul), Acausality (Type 4; Due to being a Transcendental, Akabane exists in a different plane of Existence working under a completely different flow of Time and Reality unaffected), Resistance to Radiation Manipulation (Casually held a mass of Active Uranium in his hand without even being affected in the Slightest), Poison Manipulation, Paralysis Inducement (Was unaffected by the poisonous smoke from Shikabane leaves in Infinity Fortress), Heat and Blood Manipulation (Wasn't bothered at all by Raitei's passive Aura), Illusion Creation, Mind Manipulation (Could see through Makubex' Virtual Reality), Soul Manipulation (Fought and won against Raitei at full power), Data Manipulation, Spatial Manipulation, Time Manipulation, Fate Manipulation, Information Manipulation, Law Manipulation, Magic, Physics and Metaphysics Manipulation, Soul Manipulation, Causality Manipulation, Dream Manipulation, Perception Manipulation, Memory Manipulation, Void Manipulation, BFR, Teleportation, Probability Manipulation, Biological Manipulation, Matter Manipulation, Quantum Manipulation, Willpower Manipulation, Conceptual Manipulation (Type 2), Life Manipulation, Death Manipulation, Absorption and everything The Archiver can do (Being a special type of Transcendental whose willpower and true self exists in the Real World like Professor Makube, he is Immune to anything The Archiver can do while existing in the GetBackers Universe even though The Archiver could affect Transcendentals like Kagami and Masaki in the GetBackers Universe), Statistics Reduction (Could engage in battles and defeat the likes of Ban inside the Beltline, which drains someone of their stamina), Existence Erasure, Fire Manipulation, Power Nullification (Initially Tanked Ban's Asceplius attacks that destroyed and could have erased Help)

Key: Beginning of series | Mid Series | End of Series
- Accuracy: Akabane is a master at using scalpels and as such it is impossible for him to miss. He has used this to hit thousands of glass shards mid-air and even throw the scalpels in the air only for them to fall and hit Ginji even though he had moved from his original spot.
- Bloody Sword: Akabane's sword is his main weapon for dealing with strong opponents. He creates a sword with his blood and uses it to cut down his opponent. The sword's strength relies on it's seemingly instant creation speed, it's durability ignoring effects and it's ability to cut through space and dimensions.
- Divine Providence: Akabane's powers work like the Uncertainty principle where if he can't imagine something it cannot happen. Akabane is unable to imagine his death and therefore he cannot die. He couldn't imagine that there was something his scalpels couldn't break and could therefore break through Misaki's indestructible light beams. And up until his last match versus Ban where he enjoyed his fight so much he considered the possibility of losing, it was stated that it was impossible for him to lose due to his belief.
