|~ Ri Boku to Shun Shin Kun on Kei Sha's abilities.|
Acknowledged by Ri Boku himself, Kei Sha was one of the greatest and most important military figures in the state of Zhao's military as he was the closest man to take the final seat of the Three Great Heavens.
This is evident as futher back in his childhood as he defeated one of his teacher's students with waiting that led to powerful counters
- Genius Tactician: Kei Sha
With a high attribute of tactical knowledge, he was likened to a spider who weaves a web of fluid strategy to entangle and ensnare his opponents. His instinctive skills allowed him to defeat in simulation battles many strategists including Ri Boku himself at few occasions. Ri Boku later commented that even for him defeating Kei Sha in a live battle would not be an easy task.
To date, Kei Sha ws the instinctual general with the highest attribute in the knowledge of war besides Ren Pa that in itself does not count for the strength of his own intuition. Duke Hyou remarked that despite the kinds of precarious situations he puts himself in or the strength of his offense, Kei Sha proved to be an elusive opponent. During the Battle of Kankoku Pass, he was able to effectively lead Duke Hyou into a trap and strike the rear of his army, nearly defeating him.
On the first day of the Battle of Koku You Hill, he decided to send his soldiers to the center hill as a bait. After that, he launched a flanking attack on the 2nd unit in order to completely cut off Rai Do's reinforcements. This enabled him to isolate Rai Do and Zenou units and force them to retreat - something that was even outside of Kan Ki's calculations. Later he was even able to figure out Kan Ki's weakness, however, due to his death at the hands of Shin, he wasn't able to use this information in battle.
- Master Swordsman: Taught and trained by Ri Boku, Kei Sha was a highly skilled master swordsman that held a great amount of powerful swordplay. Despite his skinny looking appearance he could deliver powerful strikes that break an iron spear with the just simple swing of his sword, kill powerful and deadly opponents like the Kan Ki Army’s Zen Ou Clan. He also very nearly killed the likes of Shin, a master swordsman himself, as he pushed the young warrior to the limit during their duel.
- Leadership: Despite his poker face and seemingly aloof demeanor, Kei Sha was noted to be a great leader as he gained steadfast loyalty from a lone wolf like Gaku Ei. With but simple words of praise, he could inspire his soldiers to endure the most brutal of battlefields. After his death, the remnants of his army in the Gaku Ei Army would go berserk in order to avenge their master during their battle with the Hi Shin Unit and in the final moments of his death Kin Mou pushed himself for the chance to avenge his lord's death, which indicates the strong connection he had with his vessels and soldiers.
- Killing Intent Exudation: Kei Sha was capable of manifesting such an intense amount of killing intent that it appeared in the form of a spider whenever he was enraged.
