Of the many types of abilities that appear in the anime world, there is no doubt that the ability to imitate other people’s abilities is one of the most dangerous. Any amount of power will be useless if the power can be imitated by the enemy.
Therefore, it is not uncommon for creators to give some limitations to the users of these abilities so that characters with the ability to imitate other people’s abilities do not become overpowered .
From Kakashi Hatake to Rimuru Tempest, here are five anime characters who can emulate other people’s abilities. Curious who the characters are? Check out the following reviews.
Kakashi Hatake (Naruto) : The ability to imitate the abilities of others is one of Kakashi Hatake’s mainstay moves. In fact, Kakashi is known as a Copy Ninja because of his ability to imitate other people’s moves. This ability is a form of Sharingan that he got from his old friend, Obito Uchiha.
With his Sharingan, Kakashi can imitate any jutsu as long as he is physically strong to use the jutsu he will imitate and not from the Kekkei Genkai. Unfortunately, Kakashi is no longer able to use this move after losing his Sharingan in the Fourth Shinobi War.
Neito Monoma (My Hero Academia) : Even though Neito Monoma is known as an annoying character, he is one of the strongest students in class 1-B. Like his Quirk’s name, Copy, Neito has the ability to imitate other people’s Quirks. To use this Quirk, Neito only needed to touch the target.
Although Copy is a very dangerous Quirk, it does have some limitations. There were some Quirks that Neito could only imitate in appearance, but not in strength. This was proven in his fight against Deku.
Even though Neito had copied One For All, Neito was unable to use the power of the Quirk. This is quite reasonable considering Neito’s body can explode if he suddenly uses One For All at full power.
Himiko Toga (My Hero Academia) : Still from the My Hero Academia series , Himiko Toga is a member of the Villain League which is now the Paranormal Liberation Front. Himiko has a Quirk called Transform, a Quirk that can only be used if Himiko drinks the blood of her target.
At first, Transform only allows Himiko to imitate the appearance of her target. However, this Quirk later evolved allowing Himiko to use her target’s abilities as well. This was shown in his fight against the Meta Liberation Army when he imitated the appearance and strength of Ochaco Uraraka.
Chrollo Lucilfer (Hunter x Hunter) : The leader of the criminal organization, Phantom Troupe, Chrollo Lucilfer can not only imitate the abilities of his enemies, but he can also steal the abilities of his enemies. This ability is called Skill Hunter.
Unlike Neito’s Copy, the use of Hunter Skills was quite complicated. To use this Nen ability, Chrollo must meet four requirements, namely Chrollo must see his victim’s Nen ability being used; ask about the ability of Nen and get answers from its victims; the victim’s palm must touch the Bandit’s Secret, and all requirements must be completed within an hour.
