  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: This is how Kamekichi's powers awaken. His family was killed when he was 4 years old, which unleashed a powerful Psychic attack, researchers confined him for 10 years in a facility to try and awaken those powers again. They succeed in doing so by killing off the Restraining Bolt; a dog that was also in the facility which he befriended. At the end of the game, when Insanity of Idea kills Idea and Munakata the same way the researchers killed the dog, his Psychic Powers become even stronger. (Levels up 10 times)
