About

Kure Clan Secret Technique - Removal

The Kure's secret technique: Removal

Ever since the Asuka period, the Kure Clan has undergone a 1300 year process of selective breeding, adoption of special techniques and outside combat arts; as a result, with each generation, the Kure have become a race specialised for battle.[4][5] According to the clan's current patriarch, there is no move the Kure cannot combat.[4] Through this selective breeding process the Kure have also attained peak physical performance, including strength, speed and durability. As such, the Kure have an extremely high pain and damage tolerance; in their blood, they possess over 20 kinds of endorphins and, combined with their abnormal physical resilience, it enables them to easily endure heavy damage and deep wounds, whether it be from a slashing attacks or being smashed to the ground.[5] However, the most notable result of their selective breeding process is their ability to consciously remove their brain's limits on their muscular strength output (as well as the physical constitution needed to handle unrestrained exertion of the muscle's strength).[6] The release rate of one's available power depends on the individual's talents.[6]

Notes & Trivia

Kure vs Mikazuchi (Raishin Style)

Kure's long-held opposition against the Raishin Style

  • Prior to Raian's defeat at the hands of Tokita Ohma, the Kure Clan had only suffered three defeats in the Kengan matches.[11]
  • The Kure Clan are modelled after the Gracie family, a prominent Brazilian family who developed and championed Brazilian jiu-jitsu.[16]
  • Most likely due to their special ability and their darkened near-black sclera and whitened irises and pupils, it is said that demons dwell within the Kure.[2]
  • As competitors in the assassination business, they have a rivalry with the Mikazuchi Clan. Their rivalry goes way back, with the Mikazuchi's Raishin Style being used to stand against the Kure Clan for generations.[17]
