He wields Kanna, a straight blade designed to never bend nor break that he stores inside his body. He is able to shoot kunai from his mouth and transform into an exact physical copy of any being. In the novel, it is stated that Kōmori can also shoot Kanna from his stomach, allowing for a point-blank impalement if he can get close enough to his target.

  • Ninpō: Kotsuniku Zaiku - This technique allows Kōmori to shape-shift into any person he wants.
  • Ultimate technique: Hōfuku Zettō (報復絶刀) - Kōmori either lunges forward with Kanna to skewer his foe or jumps up high to come swinging down hard.
