Does that mean we have to forgive the unfortunate no matter the circumstances? And if someone is blessed with a fortunate life, do they deserve to be ridiculed? It doesn't matter how she was brought up... I don't like her. And even though they grew up together... I really like Maki. Have you ever stopped to consider the person behind the curse you've condemned?

Patch-Face... it's you right? The special grade cursed spirit causing trouble for our class clown?! Yeah. Famous for being a coward and running away. I don't have much to show for today... so you'll have to at least let me squash a bug like you.

Intelligence: Above Average (Nobara has displayed quick ingenuity under great duress, being able to analyse the strengths of her opposition and how to appropriately counter to the best effect)[2]

Weaknesses: Rather reckless

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Straw Doll Technique: Nobara's Innate Technique gives her access to a varied toolset ranging from a hammer, nails and a straw doll. The primary usage of this technique consists of nails imbued with cursed energy being propelled as projectiles.
  • Resonance: Using a straw doll, Nobara is able to establish a connection between the doll and her opponent. Any harm inflicted upon the doll, the connected perpetrator would also experience. Nobara can also use herself as a substitute to the straw doll if required.
  • Hairpin: Nobara forces her nails to flare up and deal additional damage. She has also displayed proficiency using this technique in mass numbers to limit the movement of her opposition.
  • Black Flash: A technique that creates spatial distortion when a user connects with an impact of cursed energy within 0.000001 seconds of a physical hit. The phenomenon causes cursed power to flash black, creating a more potent attack to the power of 2.5 of a normal hit.

Note: Even though it is stated several times that the Black Flash multiplies the attack by ^2.5, this is not consistent with the verse as several attacks would be Solar System Level. Many times several characters are able to resist a Black Flash, even if in theory the attack is ^2.5 stronger.
