Powers and abilities
Being a descendant of the Kazama Bloodline, Kazama posses abilities inherit from the bloodline, such as the Crimson Eye & Shadow Eye. His primary power comes from the Demon Blood, a curse casted by the Demons that were banished by the Bloodline years ago, and thus, he has superhuman endurence, wierd demonic weapons without being control by it, and use demon masks. He also have a inner demon, Amazak Nil, who was an ally and enemy to Kazama. Because he posses the Blood, he can active the ability called Reaper's Curse, another ability that Bloodline member who inherit half of Demon Blood (or full) can use. Kazama don't use his demon powers often as it has a change to make Amazak to take over his body, which he dislikes about.
Kazama is proficient to any weapons from Earth & even from Hell, thanks to his harsh training from his grandfather, uncle, and granduncle: Nobuyasu Kazama, Takeshi Kazama, and Shinji Kazama. At the start of his rise of being a hero, he uses his sacred Kazama Pendant that he wear on his neck, he can cannel the power in his pendant and can shoot shadow blast and even created a dark blade (he usually use his Pendant in schools as weapons are prohibited). Outside of school he uses Zanryu & Getsuryu, a pair ninja swords constructed by himself and he his really proficient at using them. His favorite weapon of all is Kokuryumaru, a dark katana that pass down to leaders of the Bloodline for generations. In conjecture to his Demon Blood, he can assume the form of a Dark Dragon Ninja.
