The user can control their killing intention and use it to intimidate others, it can be used in two ways:

Killing Intent

The user can give off their pure killing intent, affecting opponents, themselves, and others around the vicinity. Particularly strong killing intent can paralyze the victim in fear, causing them to morbidly hallucinate their own deaths, or even kill them by forcing the mind to believe their death is a reality.

Suppression and Perception

If the user has mastered control over their emotions, they can control their killing intent by suppressing it, to prevent their opposition from discovering it, thus hiding one's motives and preventing one from being tracked by such emotions.

Anyone who can also perceive a foe's killing intent can perceive the foe's next move and prepare the next appropriate move in advance.


  • Apathy: by suppressing the intent while retaining the desire to kill.
  • Combat Perception: by reading the foe's killing intent.
  • Death By Horror: by causing fear to the point of killing the foe.
  • Fear Inducement: by showing extreme bloodlust to shock the opponents.
  • Intimidation Intuition: by using it to instill fear in their opponents and command respect from others.
  • Mental Hallucination: by projecting visions of gruesome deaths via killing intentions.
  • Pain Illusion: by causing so much fear that the foe hurts in the visions of death.
  • Paralysis Inducement: by utilizing fear against the foe to the level of stopping their movements.
  • Persuasion: by utilizing fear to make others do what the user requests.
  • Psychosomatic Illusion: by showing such powerful visions that the foes actually believe it is happening.
