Kagi no Torou
Kagi no Torou (Hooked Lantern) is a technique of Riko and is considered his pride.
This technique is his stance of absolute defense, which can't be beaten by normal techniques. By carefully looking at the opponents and the surroundings and concentrating enough, Riko can figure out all his possible ways of attacking, discard the less probable ones and thus being prepared to counter the attack from the predicted direction. This, combined with his special barbed katana Genbou, makes the Kagi no Torou an invincible technique, that can only be breached by unpredictable attacks.
