He seems always to be in a shock when his techniques got blocked or didn't do its work on how it actually should be. He said that he is the strongest man of the Gokadoin House[3] due to his powerful combinations of his elemental body.

Hiruko's Powers

The Wu Xing

Hiruko's arms and legs are representing the Wu Xing known as the Chinese Five Elements, with the complete cycle starting from wood to fire from fire to earth from earth to metal from metal to water and from water back to metal. His right arm obtains the element water and his left arm the element fire. His right leg has the element metal while his left leg got the element earth. His head has probably the element wood, while it also can be located at his belly. He sees himself as the strongest man of the Gokadoin House due to this supernatural ability. He can combine the opposing forces to create a technique which it seen as a disregards the laws of the five elements or the natural world.

For example, he can combine Water and Fire for a powerful energy explosion, when normally, water extinguishes fire. He can also combine Fire and Metal for scorching fireballs, even though Fire melt Metal.
His strongest technique involves combining all the five elements to create an even more powerful colossal ball of energy. Because of this he's known as one of the strongest amongst the Black Clothes.

Trivia Edit

  • Hiruko uses combining techniques that can be damageable, the wood is supposed to feed fire which the fire creates earth from the ashes and the earth bears metal which that carries the water which that is nourishing woods.
