Range: Standard melee range. His Spirit Gun can travel over 1,000 meters or more easily.

Intelligence: Experienced at being a spirit detective, fighting demons, and can think of clever battle strategies in the nick of time.
Weaknesses: Yusuke acts unintelligently outside of actual battles.
- Spirit-Gun: Yusuke's signature move; he harnesses his spirit energy and fires it in a strait line from his right index finger. The Spirit gun can vary in size depending on how much energy Yusuke puts into it, and the technique can be rapid fired in later chapters.
- Demon-Gun: Same as the spirit gun, but makes use of his demonic energy.
- Spirit Shotgun: An upgraded variant of the Spirit Gun. While not as power as its parent move, it fires multiple smaller shots that scatter in multiple directions enabling it to strike multiple targets.
- Spirit Punch: Yusuke is able to use his spirit energy to enhance the strikes of his punches while simultaneously form a barrier around his fists to block attacks.
- Spirit Wave: Yusuke covers his entire body in his own spirit energy thus using himself as a substitute for a spirit gun. This requires heavy amounts of concentration and may deplete him of his energy, but is very powerful and also grants him healing properties in turn.
- Mazoku/Demon transformation: Upon his awakening as a reincarnation of the Mazoku, Yusuke has once received a possession from his ancestor, Raizen. In this form, Yusuke looses all self control and has his grandfather control him instead, but his power, speed, and endurance all skyrocket to great proportions. Has never shown this ability again after the fight with Sensui, and likely never will again given Raizen's death.
