Expert Swordsman: Hiroki's strongest asset is his proficiency in swordsmanship. Although his delivery lacks proper refinement, as an adherent of the dynamic and oppressive kōseidō he effectively employs his brute strength to his advantage. There is no need for finesse and subtleties in his bladework as he aims to overpower the opponent with ferocious swings and thrusts. Somewhat surprisingly, in spite of his bulky stature he is capable of performing numerous semi-acrobatic manoeuvres during a sword-fight to further press the enemy.
Kūshaku (収穫, "Harvest"): This technique is a sequence of powerful diagonal slashes. Ideally, the enemy is forced to withdraw with each consecutive strike due to the sheer power and Hiroki follows one relentlessly all the while maintaining the assault.
Satsujin Hitouchi (殺人一打, "Murder-Stroke"): Under certain circumstances it might be more convenient to strike the enemy with the pommel of the sword rather than swing the blade in an ordinary attack. Such a strike is often quite unexpected and may briefly stun the opponent.
Sokuji Ōtō (即時応答, "Immediate Response"): Hiroki evades the enemy's attack, often with the use of Shunpo, then strikes back immediately afterward. When performed swift enough he might catch the opponent off-guard.
Suikawari (西瓜割, "Watermelon Splitting"): A strong, two-handed overhead slash which vertically cleaves an opponent in twain. The move renders Chūkūno vulnerable during the delivery, although it boasts crushing power as a form of compensation. In addition, he may precede the technique with a leap to gain extra momentum.
Tsūretsuna Ichigeki (痛烈な一撃, "Crushing Blow"): The move consists of a measured sally that transitions into a powerful two-handed strike. The technique's purpose is to suppress the enemy with display of superior strength and force them to lose ground.
Shunpo Expert: As a result of being constantly mocked for his perceived sluggishness and his desire to finish difficult tasks as soon as possible, Chūkūno has developed a fairly impressive skill in the art of high-speed movement. He may keep up with Lieutenant-class individuals in terms of sheer speed.
Shihaisha (支配者, "Dominator"): When in its sealed state the Zanpakutō appears as a nodachi with a square guard and a bronze hilt with a tassel attached to the pommel. Habitually, Hiroki carries the sword around in his hand.
Shikai: Released with the command "Subjugate" (平らげる, Tairageru). Hiroki lifts his nodachi directly above his head in a two-handed grip. Subsequently, the Zanpakutō morphs into a sizeable iron kanabō. The tassel is retained in the transformed state.
Shikai Special Ability: Rather than a simple Melee-type Zanpakutō, Shihaisha is a Kidō-type which boasts the power over gravity.
Ryōyūken (領有権, "Dominion"): Upon activation the technique manifests a visible dome of 10-metre radius that appears as an area of undulating air. The magnitude of gravity within the dome is increased tenfold to anyone who enters except for Chūkūno himself. As long as he is the only one to hold the Zanpakutō's hilt, even considerably stronger spiritual beings are subject to the power. In fact, it is possible for Hiroki to "mark" certain individuals so that they are exempt from the Zanpakutō's influence, albeit he can maintain this effect for only two select people at a time.
