She holds honor in combat to a high degree, preferring one-on-one battles or fights where the number of enemies and allies are even. She holds a semblance of respect for her opponent, even complimenting them on their abilities when appropriate.

During a mission to Shiryokugakure she traveled to the Dark Lands where she was taught how to summon Ravens from the leader of the dark lands Yatagarasu. During her stay she was taught how to fight, fly, and flee by utilizing the ravens as allies in battle. Currently, she is very skilled with ravens and is able to mix them in with her attack, as well, which is ideal for fooling opponents.

Yoshikage is a highly skilled practitioner of the sword style iaido, as well as kenjutsu. Her style of attack is not focused on any part of the body, but is to simply cause as much damage as possible to her opponent. She also mixes swordplay with hand-to-hand combat, such as occasional punches, kicks and grabs in order to take the enemy off-guard. When her abilities are used in unison with her partner Seigō's, their power in terms of swordsmanship is rendered nearly-unstoppable as a result, their abilities and styles complimenting each other in combat. One of the most fearful traits of the sword itself is that it is made of unknown substance, and is unbreakable except by Yǐtiānjiàn.
