"Apparently totally unreliable, he wonders if he has incredible potential."
― Soitsu (Yugioh)

The inability to have any relevant power, strength, durability, or skill to win any conventional battle against a serious opponent. Opposite to Absolute Combat.

Also Called

  • Joke Character
  • No Stats
  • Useless


The combatant lacks the traits necessary for combat: no offensive capabilities, severe fragility, no option to fight or defend themselves (without outside assistance). This uselessness can be effective if the enemy is somehow dependent on the power of their opponents. For example: Power Empowerment and Possession.

Sometimes this combatant is powerless as a result of a handicap that, if removed, could unleash an Empowered State.



  • The user has no way to defend themselves from any serious threat; even a normal person can easily defeat them in combat.
