- Arm Cannon:
- Artificial Limbs:
- Blade Below the Shoulder: His aforementioned knife hand.
- Four Is Death: In the manga, he is labeled "God of Death" (shinigami note ).
- Monochromatic Eyes:
- More Dakka:
- Silver Fox: A little on the young side for this - he's anywhere from his late 20s (specifically 28) to 30, depending on the adaptation. Other than that, however...
- Badass Native: When he gets to fight, his cyborg powers let him plow through quite a bit of mooks.
- Facial Markings: Standard in all adaptations except for the 2012 movie, where they only appear when he's cutting loose and using his strength to the fullest.
- Genius Bruiser: While he mainly acts as the physical powerhouse of the 00-Cyborg team, he still manages to come across as very thoughtful and calm.
- Made of Iron: One of his powers is listed as having armored skin, which allows him to shrug off most attacks like wet paper.
- Super Strength: In the 2001 series, Ivan estimates him to be "as strong as a thousand men."
- Top-Heavy Guy: Due to Ishinomori's art style, he's often drawn with a broader upper torso and shoulders, while his body from the waist down is smaller and skinnier.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Throwing rocks (or an alternative) at everything always works. He does carry a laser gun like the rest of his team, but why use it when you have Super Strength?
- Chef of Iron: A Supreme Chef who can also fight. It's worth noting that he doesn't mix cooking with combat, though.
- Eyes Always Shut: They usually resemble a pair of "3"s. He does open them at points throughout the anime and manga, although sometimes Ishinomori depicted his very pupils as "3" symbols in the later chapters. In the '60s anime works, they vary between having sclerae or being Black Bead Eyes.
- Gag Nose: Identified by his big, round nose. It even carries over to his RE: and "Call of Justice" self, to an extent.
- Playing with Fire: He can breathe torrents of fire that are hot as 3,000 degrees. In Conclusion: GOD'S WAR, Ivan gives him a psychic upgrade in the form of pyrokinesis.
- But Not Too Foreign:
- Jack-of-All-Stats: Has the highest base specs as a cyborg amongst the 00-Numbers, but the others all beat him out in specific areas.
- Japanese Delinquents: Was one in the original manga and some adaptations (such as the 1979 one).
- Lightning Bruiser: Very powerful and very fast.
- Peek-a-Bangs: A trademark.
- The Protagonist: Maybe one of the best examples in anime (provided the episode isn't centered on the other cyborgs.)
- Time Stands Still: How he perceives the world while accelerated. The "Frozen Time" chapter in the manga and its adaptation in the '01 anime leaves him stuck like this for a while. It's nightmarish for him. Depending on the adaptation, he also can't hear or touch anything 'normal' for collateral damage reasons, in this state.
- You Are Number 6: His callsign is "009", as he is the last 00-Cyborg to be made (at least until the 00-Cyborg assassins came along)
