Standing in the Battledome

KnY is a weak verse, even below the likes of Rurouni Kenshin. Primarily due to it being new. The verse does however posess some interesting abilities for such a low tier verse. 

The verse's demons have regeneration ranging from low - mid level, even fodder can grow back arms that were cut off or even sprout limbs from thier dismemebred heads. They can even control their bodies even if they've been decapitated. Depending on the level of demon they can possess various abilities such as illusion creation, sensory abilities, shapeshifting and the strongest demon in the series, Kitbutsuji can turn humans into demons with his blood.

On the destructive side of things, the characters only range from street to wall level. 

Speed wise they're superhuman to faster than the eye can see.
