- Hokuto Shinken: Hokuto Shinken is a 1, 800 year old Chinese martial art based around assassination and passed on only from teacher to student. Its power is based around targeting and hitting the 708 Keiraku Hikō (or pressure points) in an opponent's body, channeling energy into them, and through that, manipulating their movements. These pressure points can be used to control an enemy's body, in ways such as forcing them to move or destroying them from the inside with an explosion, or they can be used for healing, such as in the restoration of someone's memories, eyesight, or voice.
As the 63rd successor to Hokuto Shinken, Ryūken is a master of the art, and should know nearly all of its techniques.
- Shichisei Tenshin: A secret technique of Hokuto Shinken that allows Ryūken to move in the pattern of the Big Dipper, striking his opponent in the seven blind spots inherent in a human's field of vision, quickly overwhelming them.
- Tenryū Kokyū Hō: A technique that allows the user to access the full extent of their body's strength; humans only normally use 30%. Through this technique, a practitioner of Hokuto Shinken can unlock the other 70%.
