    Power/Abilities thread

    Hey, I was thinking about making a thread in which we summarise all the powers which have been shown in the manga. This thread can also be used on discussing these abilities. I might need some help because you always forget a character (minor) or you forget a an ability. Anyway, discuss, post characters and their powers.

    You can post and add info or suggest corrections. I use the nanatsu no taizai wiki to c/p


    Seven Deadly Sins

    Meliodas (Dragon's Sin of Wrath)

    • Full Counter: this ability allows Meliodas to reflect attacks aimed at him, back at the enemy, but with much greater power; therefore, the stronger the opponent's powers are, the stronger Meliodas' power becomes. A prime drawback is that Meliodas cannot initiate attacks himself. He is not be able to reflect attacks if the opponent does not allow him to read the nature and timing of their attacks, and only "power" attacks can be reflected; the ability is useless against indirect attacks, or an ordinary punch.
    King (Grizzly's Sin of Sloth)


    • Disaster: Not much is known about this ability as of yet, except that it apparently enabled King to trigger Cain's rheumatism.
    • Levitation: King possesses the ability to levitate and is capable of flight. He demonstrates great skill in using it and is able to move quickly through the air. He can also utilize this ability to levitate objects and manipulate their trajectory without the need to make any direct contact.
    • Transformation: An ability that allows King to change his physical appearance as well as his clothes. In order for King to change appearance, he requires a great amount of concentration. This ability appears to leave him exhausted.

    Re: Power/Abilities thread

    Let's see, there are also Ban's snatch power used to rob other's powers.

    I add here a scale or powers to be discussed. From the lowest to the highest would be something like:
    • King with out his treasure
    • Hawk
    • A sin with out treasure like Meliodas, Ban or Diane
    • Geera and Jericho and Knights who has taken demon blood later and not since the beginning (and we ignore what exactly that means)
    • King with his treasure
    • Helbram
    • Helbram with the power of 20 knights (thanks to his link power)
    • Meliodas with half of his body covered with the black mark
    • Helbram with the power of those knights + Hendricksen (this guy seems to be something serious)
    • Meliodas with all his body covered with the black mark (at least hinted in the chapt 48) and Diane with her dear Gideon treasure. (I put Diane here only because she seems to be able to beat the rival from the previous line.

    Re: Power/Abilities thread

    You can now add "Diane with her hammer when someone threaten her captain" in your list ukimix :-)
    She seems to have an earth elemental power but I don't think it was named yet

    For the Holy knights
    Hellbram : Link a power that can link several people power together
    Griamor has a defensive power
    Hauser has an air elemental power
    Gilthunder has an electric elemental power
    Geera has an explosive power
    Jericho has a cutting power

    We have also seen that it is possible to send spell with some orbs. We have yet to know how they works though.

    Re: Power/Abilities thread

    Uh, how could I forget... Sure that adds two more lines:
    • King with out his treasure
    • Hawk
    • A sin with out treasure like Meliodas, Ban or Diane in sober mode
    • Diane with out treasure but being cheated by her captain (The woman is scary... she won the Bizel Festival)
    • Geera and Jericho and Knights who has taken demon blood later and not since the beginning (and we ignore what exactly that means)
    • King with his treasure
    • Helbram
    • Helbram with the power of 20 knights (thanks to his link power)
    • Meliodas with half of his body covered with the black mark
    • Helbram with the power of those knights + Hendricksen (this guy seems to be something serious)
    • Meliodas with all his body covered with the black mark (at least hinted in the chapt 48) and Diane with her dear Gideon treasure and when someone threaten her captain. (I put Diane here only because she beat the rival from the previous line.)
    Women always make things complex.

    And don't be mean with Hawk, he has a wide range of attacks.

    Re: Power/Abilities thread

    The magic and abilities are somewhat confusing.

    The databook confirmed that everyone has a personal magic so I was wondering, what about the Classic magicians? Excepted the Human race the other ones have abilities related to their races + a personal magic. Doesn't it put Magicians above the others? Especially if they are not human, Vivian for example is pretty strong and doesn't seem to have used a personal magic. There is Diane who was able to create Golems very young as a Giant, doesn't it mean that Creation should not be her personal magic?
    Also King, with his Disaster, which only amplyfies his natural abilities, but his magic is different from Merlin and Vivian. There are Enchantments too.

    Re: Power/Abilities thread

    I'm curious as to how strong an adult Giant in their prime is. Diane, according to the author, is still considered a teen, yet her strength is 1870. Would a Giant in their prime still be at this level? Or would they be at an even higher level? Because that'd potentially mean some adult giants would more than surpass the 3000 mark.

    Probably not. Diane is a Sin so she is supposed to be the or one of the strongest of her race.

    Some might be above 1870 and lose to her due to her other stats.

    Re: Power/Abilities thread

    I expect giants to be strong although diane should be exceptional even among them. King was very surprise of her use of her ability at a young age after all. Now, the average giant warrior is bound to be well stronger than an average holy knight but I don't expect their strength to be similar to that of the sins in general. The sins are far too powerful to be matched easily by a race... If the giants were that strong then the demon clan probably would not pose a threat.

    Considering Diane is a sin, she should be top while using her sacred treasure.

    Re: Ten Commandments

    I don't think Arthur is a factor in the fight against the ten commandments. He does not have an ability yet.... His physical capacity might be up there with the ghk however without an ability he is not really worth all that much. Even Hendrickson was able to have an ultimately comfortable victory over him.... And frankly, at this stage even the this we have seen seem to fall short of even the sins.

    Re: Ten Commandments

    I'm only counting him as a factor only when he gets his power. As it stands right now, he is only fighting with Physical and Spirit stats. Him discovering his Power would definitely add to that. Then there is the fact that he has Excalibur, which, more likely than not, will be his Sacred Treasure equivalent. The potential is there.

    Re: Ten Commandments

    Yeah. This is taking into account when Arthur does awaken his power. Even then, there would probably be some advancement on his part before fighting the 10 commandments. If we were just to go strictly by current showing, the sins don't matchup either.

    Re: Ten Commandments

    To be honest the sacred treasures don't seem to be that big a deal to me. Its not like people have trouble getting stuff like that. People of good enough position can get weapons on par with sacred treasures. Perhaps there will be a synergy thing when it comes to the sacred treasures and the sins but other than that it does not look like this will be a long standing plot plot point. Odds are merlin will simply provide the remaining sins with their sacred treasures soon enough (thats technically just ban though unless escanor lost his). Anyways, as far as arthur goes it does not seem like his stats are at the level of gilthunder or base hendrickson. I also doubt activating his ability would have an effect on his stats... At least the series does not seem to hint that yet.

    Anyways, can arthur, gilthunder, hauser and a few others really be an asset against the ten commandments with a power level around the 2000s apparently? I guess the weakest of the demons could potentially be at that level however the stronger ones are probably well stronger than that. Meliodas with demon powers was able to stop an attack from gilthunder with his fingers. I'd say it is reasonable that meliodas' siblings can do something like that too. Effectively the strength of the stronger ones should be something like meliodas + demon powers. Except that their demon powers are active at all times. Hendrickson with red demon powers didn't seem to be that much higher than any one sin to boot...

    Re: Ten Commandments

    Well the way I understand it, sacred treasure simply allows the sin to draw out their immense power. Its not like it actually gives them power. Perhaps what King meant was that guila and jericho had weapons which can draw out power the way the sacred treasure does. However, I'd say he made that statement comparing the weapon and their own power level. Eg the sins are all above 3000, say guila and jericho are about 1500, the weapons needed to draw out a significant portion of their power would be far weaker than that needed to draw power for a sin. So the weapons they used would be a sacred treasure to them considering their power levels but would actually only be a slightly powerful weapon to a sin and so wouldn't qualify as a sacred treasure to a sin.

    As for Arthur, I don't agree. Abilities do add a big factor. Gilthunder without using his lightning is nothing to right home about imo. Like Merlin said, Arthur held his own against a GHK without using any abilities which is a pretty decent start. Mel using his ability (revenge counter) and that of the holy knights and sins there is what ultimately led to Hendricksen's defeat.

    Anyway, I understand your point. Like I said, even after awakening his power, Arthur would need some significant upgrade before he can fight the 10 commandments. Even the sins don't match up currently. That would eventually change. I'd say the demons are easily over 3000 though. That's the minimum for a sin, however, if we consider how hendricksen reacted when the demons showed up, they're certainly way above that. Probably all atleast 4000 IMO.

    Its also possible that the sins get new sacred treasures or the sacred treasures get enchanted or upgraded. There just might be weapons that can draw out even more than their current sacred treasure does.

    Re: Ten Commandments

    When Arthur will awaken his Magic, I think he will just need more real combat experience. The Special showed us that he was very talented and being able to clash with a GHK in a first real battle is something amazing. His swordplay is more than good enough.
