Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Haki: There are normally two types of Haki regular people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busōshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them. There is however a third type of Haki, Haōshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. Marco is not one of these people.

  • Busōshoku Haki (Color of Armaments): A form of Haki that allows the user to create an "invisible armor" around themselves. With that, they can protect themselves from attacks, and if trained well, use it to deliver stronger attacks. Besides the increase of strength, it is the only form of attack that doesn't involve Kairouseki that can hit any Devil Fruit user, being able to hit the user's original body even if it's a Logia user. It can also be used in weapons.


  • Kenbunshoku Haki (Color of Observation or Mantra): A form of Haki that allows the user to sense the presence of his opponents. A user of this type of Haki can predict an opponent's moves before he gets hit. This works by showing the user an image or brief "premonition" of what the opponent will do, manifested as a mental image in the user's mind's eye, and the damage the user will take if the attack "hit" for real. It appears that the more killer intent the enemy has the easier they are to predict, though more efficient users can predict future moves regardless of whether there are ambient murderous intents or not. Including the distance, location, and where the opponent may strike next.

- Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix (Bird Bird no Mi, Model: Phoenix):  A Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit which bestows the power to transform into a phoenix and phoenix hybrid at will. While transformed, Marco is completely shrouded in blue flames called Blue Flames of Resurrection which typically do not exude heat, but have special properties making them more powerful than normal flames. These flames are capable of healing the wielder as well as whomever the wielder decides. This includes healing diseases. 

  • Fujiazami (Immortal Thistle): A defensive move that has Marco, in his phoenix form, jump in front of someone he wishes to shield from an attack. While midair, he forms a protective swirl of fire in front of him, out of his wings, in order to block the attack in question. Being Marco's first-seen technique, Fujiazami was used by him (but not named) when protecting Whitebeard from Kizaru during the Summit War, warding off the admiral's Yasakani no Magatama.


  • Hoo-In (Fenghuang Seal): While midair, Marco readies his phoenix talons in front of him, and then delivers an extremely forceful, two-legged kick to a target (in the anime with a single leg). This move, when first shown by Marco, was strong enough to knock back the Queen Mama Chanter, an enormous ship.


  • Nashi no Tsubute (Pineapple Stone): A support-type move for which Marco transforms his arms into phoenix wings and swirls them around, thereby spreading his flames to a potential multitude of people, setting them on fire in order to heal them. The technique was first seen being used by Marco to counteract the "Ice Oni" virus in numerous infected at Skull Dome's Live Floor, keeping the flames at just the right temperature to slow the virus' effects.


  • Bluebird (Blue-Flamed Goose): An attack where Marco uses his outstretched index and middle fingers to make a dense, flaming swirl of phoenix feathers in front of him, remotely shaping it into a large fireball that he launches straight toward an enemy in a thrust-like, concussive attack. When first shown performing this technique, Marco used one of his cut-off wings as a medium to produce the feathers, and the resulting attack was able to send the All-Star King flying back with immense force.


  • Ongle (Crane Claw): A melee attack similar to Hoo-in, where Marco uses a phoenix leg to powerfully kick an opponent, but this time uses a single leg, with its four sharp talons doing slashing damage. This kick proved strong enough to send Queen the Plague flying with great force while gashing his face.
