- Instant Death: Instant Death is Yogiri’s ability to kill anything with a single thought, although he usually says something like “die” along with it, it’s actually stated and shown to be thought based on multiple occasions as he can also activate it along anything else such as "you're the eyesore". It has been noted that what phenomena occurs after he targets an object to kill it is dependent on Yogiri's cognition of the death, for example, a door's purpose being that of blocking the way into another room so it only becomes logical that if the door dies it will allow him to cross the entrance, however this is something that Yogiri does not actively do when using his ability as it occurs by itself. Despite the name of the ability it is not necessarily instantaneous if Yogiri decides to not make it so as there is some leeway as to when his targets can die as long as they do die. Seemingly connected to the nature of instant death, Yogiri's perception of the world shows him any hostility directed at him or his allies or just plain hazards and use that to track enemies he would not normally be capable of detecting, predict and sense their movements/thought patterns, or automatically retaliate with the activation of instant death.
