Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Yoki (Demon Energy): The energy of a yoma. When a Claymore is created she assimilates the yoma yoki. The claymores uses yoki to use special skills like increasing their strength and speed: the more yoki used, the bigger the boost, but the distortion induced by the yoki released is also increased proportionally. Moreover, the claymore also gradually loses her human self to the yoma within her the more yoki she uses; if they go beyond a certain point, they will 'awaken' and completely loose touch with their human self. Many Claymore also uses their yoki to make special moves.

  • Yoki Sensing: Clare has exceptional skill at sensing even the minute-like differences in the flow of Yoki. Since Claymores and Awakened Beings use Yoki to move even their limbs, this ability allows Clare to predict their next move just an instant before they move. Relying in her detection abilities alone she can avoid attacks from opponents supposed to be faster than her and correctly time her counterattacks.


  • Yoki Suppression: Clare has learned to hide one's Yoki aura, while retaining Yoki sensing and fighting ability.


  • Quicksword: Allows her to make several slashes that make it look as if she has not unsheathed her sword. At one of its first appearances she made 40+ slashing paths on the water without seemingly even moving. The downsides were that Clare couldn't control the motion of the sword and it harmed both friend and ally. Later she synchronized the technique with her Yoki Sensing to make her choose the target.


  • Windcutter: Unlike Quicksword which is essentially letting the arm run wild, the Windcutter relies on pure skill (by supposedly some extreme form of Iaidō) to achieve high speed attacks. Compared to the former, the Windcutter has less power and speed but it compensates with much more finer control and no reliance on Yoki powers, though she can use it to augment the technique.


    • Flash Windcutter: A combination of the Windcutter's precision and the Quicksword's speed. Clare's original technique which she performed once releasing her Yoki powers from the 7 years of slumber.


  • Voice Change: Clare has the ability to impersonate a male voice and other types of voices.


  • Half-Awakened Form: Clare's eyes turn gold with slit pupils like a Yoma and her face and body become distorted. Her legs become hock-jointed like a horse's, making her faster, and blades grow from her right arm, with her left becoming large and claw-like. It should be noted that her right arm upon awakening is most likely what Irene's right arm would have resembled upon awakening. Clare can not normally use this: she only used it once, and her next awakening attempt failed due to a mental block.


  • Soul Link: As she is made of Teresa's flesh, the spirit of the legendary former #1 resides within her. Clare is able to tap into this and awaken Teresa.
