A master swordsman and tactician, Shishio is able to study his opponent's techniques and exploit their flaws in battle. His sword, the Mugenjin, is soaked in the bodily oils of all the victims Shishio killed in battle as he is able to use the oils as ignition to set his sword ablaze and use it to both cut and burn his enemies.
