Rampage Dress (天衣装着 Ten'i Souchaku, lit. "Heavenly Garment Equipping"): Junko is a Level 4 Esper with the ability to manipulate the electrical signals in her body to consciously control it at the cellular level to surpass her physical limits. This allows her to perform superhuman feats of strength and speed by boosting her muscle cells or strengthen individual senses, like strengthening her senses of smell by increasing the sensitivity of her olfactory cells. However, she can still harm herself if she pushes her body too much, as seen when she tried to stop herself and another student from falling by grabbing onto a tree branch and the momentum damaged her shoulder. Additionally, she can do other things like control her own cutaneous respiration, reduce her oxygen consumption in a state similar to suspended animation, shut down her sense of hearing when faced with sound-based techniques and even resist Iruka Yumiya's light flash that knocks out people by inducing an abnormality in their brain's electric signals in their brains.
- Regeneration: Junko's power gives her a high-speed regeneration ability through rapid cell division that heals small injuries like cuts and burns so fast even people close to her or herself have issues telling if she was injured or not in the first place. However, overuse of this regeneration places a heavy burden in her body and mind, taking the form of powerful headaches.
