Powers and Abilities
High Spiritual Power: As a high-ranking member of the Jōren, Asuma possesses high spiritual power. His power is noted to be the equal of a typical Lieutenant-General in the Shuuten, a clear indication of his reiryoku reserves.
Zanjutsu Hakuda-hybrid: Asuma practices a choreographed and highly developed form of combat which uses both Zanjutsu and Hakuda in equal measures. He employs sudden one-or-two-handed sword attacks followed by swift kicks, his aim to completely unbalance his opponent. His style mimics that of Ranmaru Sr. to a certain extent, though with a higher focus on balance rather than outright brute force.
Chidori (千鳥, One Thousand Birds). Like his uncle Fujimoto's Namininoru, Asume's Zanpakutō is sealed in the form of a bokken, or wooden sword, shaped like a traditional katana he wears threaded through his belt at the side.
