Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Nen: The ability to use and manipulate the vital energy (Aura) present in the body of the user. Aura is an energy produced by all living bodies vital for survival. The loss of one's aura is losing the energy keeping the body alive, resulting in death. Although the production of aura is unconscious and constant by all living beings, it is more than just 'leaky energy'. Aura carries with it the desires and emotions of the one who deploys it, which is what allows for Nen to have incredible versatility to those who develop their skill at using it. Nen is also heavily influenced by mental condition and state. There are six types of aura, and every individual is born with a natural affinity for one of these six different aura types. It is currently unknown what affinity Knuckle have.

  • Enhancement: Enhancement is basically the ability to use aura to increase the natural abilities of an object or one's own body. Therefore, Enhancers are able to greatly increase their physical attack and defense, and are best suited for close-melee combat.


  • Emission: Emission is the act of controlling the deployment of their aura while separating it from their body. Aura usually decreases in intensity very quickly when it is separated from the source body, but strong Emitters can separate their aura from their body for long-periods of time and still be able to maintain it.

- Hatsu: The release or transmission of one's aura so it can be projected to carry out a certain function. In essence, Hatsu is one's personal expression of Nen that creates a special and unique paranormal ability (colloquially called a Nen Ability).

  • Hakoware (Bankruptcy, Chapter Seven): Hakoware involves conjuring an indestructible mascot called the "Potclean" onto the opponent after being dealt a blow from Knuckle. Potclean constantly lends Knuckle's aura to whomever its attached to, displayed by a rising counter on its forehead. As long as the Potclean is attached, any attacks done to Knuckle by his opponent return aura to him, lowering the counter. Until all of the aura lent by Knuckle is returned to him, Knuckle cannot be physically damaged by his opponent. The reverse is also true—each of Knuckle's blows only lends aura to his opponent, causing no damage (though in both cases the one receiving the blow may be knocked back by it). The interest rate on Potclean is 10% of borrowed aura, accrued every ten seconds. As the amount of interest accumulates, Potclean also grows in size. If the aura borrowed from Knuckle exceeds his opponent's total aura, the opponent goes bankrupt. Bankruptcy causes the conjured Potclean to transform into the "Toritaten", a demon-like mascot that follows the debtor for 30 days and forces them into Zetsu. The victim only accumulates interest when within 100 meters of Knuckle, but Knuckle can track the general location of the victim at all times, no matter how far away they are.
