Uta possesses a Fire Kagune which takes the form of several large arms that sprout from her shoulders and back with flesh covering most of her face.

Uta is able to transform his head into a three-part mouth with jaws, similar to that of a Venus Flytrap, which he can use to devour his enemies whole. He nonchalantly dodges Hirako’s continued assaults with his Quinque, taunting him as he closes in on the Inspector.

Uta has shown inhuman feats of regeneration; without any consumption, he healed his face after being stabbed by several Quinques in a short interval in addition to his instant regeneration when his face was injured again by Hirako severing the upper half of his head. Uta possesses the ability to mimic the appearances of others, though the exact means of this are currently unexplained.

He previously mimicked Kisho Arima’s facial features, while leaving his overall appearance and hairstyle unchanged. On another occasion, he managed to mimic Yukinori Shinohara’s physical appearance and voice so accurately that he momentarily tricked the latter’s former partner, Juzo Suzuya. He was also able to mimic the physical appearance and voice of Ken Kaneki, when he was Haise Sasaki.

The mask is made of RC Cell, with many eyes moving in different angles allow it to see an area better. All of the eyes are red Kakugan. The ghoul’s arms in this form transform and will become much larger and take on a more eccentric shape. These arm extensions made of RC cell allow it to give powerful punches.

Kurona also demonstrates very strong regeneration, as when she was cut in half and quickly reformed and reappeared whole. She also carries a higher pain resistance, and will be able to regenerate stab wounds in seconds. Even when dismembered, she continues to fight and can quickly reform.

Hinami vs Mado

In use, Touka’s Kagune is surrounded by a lightning-like aura capable of generating electricity that can be used offensively and destructively. During her fight against Shu, she moved at a high enough speed that Shu didn’t know where she was for a short period of time.

Like his big sister, Ayato inherited the winged Kagune from his mother, Hikari. This Kagune takes the form of two wings of fire, turning from red to dark blue, which allow him to block attacks by giving them the shape of a cloak, or to fire projectiles in the form of blue-black crystals. He can also use his wings to destroy bodies by ramming them with great power.

His kagune obviously allows him to fly, and he seems to be able to fly at quite high altitudes. Also, he wields his Kagune better than Toka and can hit his target even inside a narrow room, as if they were an extension of his body.

Ayato is also very good in hand-to-hand combat; according to him, it would be his specialty. Winged Kagune are generally weak in melee, but Ayato manages to overcome this flaw to make it a quality. He fights very well in hand-to-hand combat, using various techniques and only taking out part of his Kagune so as not to hinder him.

Kaneki27s Kagune Anime

Rating: SS

After inheriting Rize Kamishiro’s RC Cells, Ken displayed a unique healing factor, as well as a Scaly Kagune and increased physical power. Due to his “interbreeding” and the Washu bloodline RC cells he obtained, Ken’s abilities are more powerful than those of a “thoroughbred” ghoul. When Banjo Kazuichi came to the Anteiku, Ken accidentally hit him unconsciously with an elbow, knocking him out on the spot.

Ken was able to rip out an asphalt lamp post and use it to hit one of the Bin Brothers. Ken was able to evade Narukami’s condensed projectiles, flailing Arima. While facing Yukinori Shinohara, Ken was traveling at immense speed, fast enough that Shinohara couldn’t track his location. In his fight with Karren, Haise was able to maneuver and dodge his Kagune’s quick attacks, quickly approaching it from behind towards the end of the move.

During his second encounter with Nishiki, Ken was able to withstand the many blows of the ghoul in his weakened and starved state, and when he was fighting Matasaka Kamishiro, Ken maintained his consciousness after being tackled to the ground and walls of the Kano underground laboratory.

During his torture at the hands of Yamori, he continuously regenerated his fingers and toes for an entire 10 days. He recovered easily from injuries inflicted by Matasaka Kamishiro, and recovered from a hole he received while fighting Kôtaro Amon. He survives his fight against Arima, and heals his wounds despite losing his memories.

Ken possesses a more than evident pain tolerance during his fight against Naki.

Noro healing himself

Rating: SS~

Noro has an extremely concentrated Kagune, the latter is able to shape it so as to form a mouth at the end of its enormous tentacle in order to tear or devour its opponents. Noro’s Fire Kagune differs from the others in that in this form, as Noro seems to “transform” into a huge mass of Kagune from which many appendages such as his eyes or many mouths appear.

By deploying this Fire Kagune, Noro loses all mobility, but benefits from a power and resistance capable of knocking down many opponents. Its tentacles seem uncontrollable and it is very complicated to approach its “heart”. Even for a ghoul, Noro’s ability to regenerate is incredible. The ghoul was indeed able to survive several attacks that should have killed her without showing any signs of pain.

The latter was decapitated, sliced ​​in two or pierced and was always able to survive thanks to his incredible regeneration whose psychological impact allows him to give his opponents the impression of fighting an invulnerable adversary. Noro demonstrates incredible resistance to pain and is capable of taking severe damage without expressing any pain.

Being an extraordinary ghoul, Noro must eat much more than a normal ghoul in order to continue living. Noro also demonstrates surprising agility, the ghoul can jump several meters off the ground while fighting with his kagune. It can also be attached to flat surfaces such as walls or ceilings. He can fight while being fixed on a ceiling several meters above the ground.

However it is very likely that it is not complete; moreover it only appears in the anime. Also in the anime, he is shown to have great strength capable of destroying a quinque like that of the director of Cochlea. In the manga, we can see a tentacle will come out of Tatara’s dress to hit an opponent; this tentacle could be a part of Tatara’s kagune, which he never shows.

In this form, her actual body was recessed into the creature’s forehead with additional limbs protruding from the face and sides.

Having committed acts of cannibalism, Kuzen sharpened and developed his kagune to bring out two large blades from his shoulders to counter this weakness. With these two large blades, he can cover the distance between his opponents, parry incoming attacks, and retaliate synchronously.

While his winged kagune spans medium to far distances, his fire kagune reduces those ahead; it is nearly impossible to escape Kuzen’s reach. Kuzen’s fire kagune also forms a mask similar to that of the One-Eyed Owl, with minor differences in the size of the kagugan and the curves of the lips.

His fire kagune is powerful enough to endure and counter multiple attacks from CCG Special Inspectors and enhances his physical abilities at the effort required to overpower him, as Kuzen is also skilled enough to fight off an army of Inspectors simultaneously without much difficulty. wrong.
