Shinigami Powers (死神の力, Shinigami no chikara) are the latent, divine powers of a Death God.[3]


Originating from the Lines of Sanzu,[4] this kind of energy used by Death Gods to allow for powerful, divine powers and abilities. These powers can have their own, independent theme such as the likes of a Hindu/Buddhism theme.[5][6] Functionally, its usage can be said to appear similar to that of Magic utilized by Witches and Sorcerers.
