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 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.

  • Paralysis Inducement: by utilizing fear against the foe to the level of stopping their movements.
