Name: Satsuki Kiryūin
Origin: Kill la Kill
Classification: Human, President of Honnōji Academy's Student Council

Able to wear a Kamui, which is 100% Life Fibers, when a normal person wearing clothing made of only 50% Life Fibers gets overwhelmed to the point of becoming a berserk monster.)
Attack Potency: Mountain level (Far stronger than the Mk 2 Elite 4. Fought Post Mk 1 Absorption Ryuko to a standstill. Uzu Sanageyama admitted that Satsuki is so far above him in power that him wearing his Mk 2 Goku Uniform would just barely be able to beat her middle school self if she held back) | At least Mountain level (Much stronger than her previous form due to being better synchronized with Junketsu. Oneshot multiple COVERs with just her toenail blades while naked) | Country level (Comparable to Post-Junketsu Ryuko. Stronger than the Ultimate Regalia Elite 4 due to Junketsu being injected with a mixture of Satsuki's and Ryuko's blood and infused with Senketsu's life fibers and was able to hold off base Ragyō Kiryūin alongside them)
Speed: At least Sub-Relativistic (Kept up with True Life Fiber Synchronized Ryuko and dodged her Scissor Blade Decapitation Mode from point-blank range) | At least Sub-Relativistic (Faster than the Mk 2 Elite 4) | At least Sub-Relativistic, likely higher (Comparable to Post-Junketsu Ryuko)
Lifting Strength: Class M (Equal to Ryuko) | At least Class M | At least Class M (Stronger than Gamagori)

Durability: Mountain level | At least Mountain level (Tanked the destruction of Honnouji point blank range while near death and in nothing but her underwear. Tanked multiple hits from Junketsu Ryuko.) | Country level (Took multiple hits from a serious base Ragyo)
Stamina: Very high (Was able to dominate Junketsu, a kamui made 100% of life fibers, and make it bend to her will when any normal person would be turned into a mindless rampaging monster when wearing even 50% life fibers. Was able to endure a full month of torture and then immediately go on to fight with no signs of tiring.)
Range: Extended melee range with Bakuzan, Several kilometers with shockwaves and air slashes
Standard Equipment: Secret Sword Bakuzan/Bakuzan Gako and Bakuzan Kōryu, Kamui Junketsu, Fake toenails made from the same material as Bakuzan
Intelligence: Gifted (Satsuki is highly skilled in combat, far surpassing any of the elite four to the point that Sanageyama, the most skilled fighter of the four, states that Satsuki is so far above him that he would only barely be able to beat her middle school self is he had his Mk 1 uniform and she held back. She is also a master strategist, often devising plans within plans within plans to disguise her true motives until the absolute last second as well as planning contingencies should her plans fail, such as preemptively setting explosives within Honnōji Academy Dome should her plan to kill Ragyo fail and preemptively replacing her toenails with Bakuzan's metal should she be captured if that plan failed.)
Weaknesses: If someone cuts the Banshi threads of Junketsu she becomes more vulnerable to attacks.
- Kamui Junketsu: Life Fiber Override: Like Ryuko, Satsuki possesses a Kamui which enhances her immense physical abilities through the use of her blood. Due to her lack of trepidation towards using Junketsu, she is easily able to initiate its Override Form and gain massive power through it.
- Junketsu Senpū: After being worn by Ryuko, Junketsu gains the ability to fly through the Senpū form.
- Junketsu Senpū Zenkan: An improved form of Senpū that Junketsu gained after being infused with Senketsu's Life Fibers. The Kamui has blades protruding from its body boosting its power even more.
