Abilities

Detachable Head: Nuke-Kubi is able to detach his head by his own will, while separated he is unable to control his body as it becomes immobile. During separation his head is able to float above the ground and even fly at great heights.[1][3] His head can also be removed easily by someone else.[2]

  • Thermal Manipulation: When separated his head releases an extreme heat capable of causing the temperature to rise to melting point. Conversely his body gives off an extreme cold that is capable of dropping the temperature to freezing point. When connected they cancel each other and maintain a normal temperature. However if separated for longer periods of time, his head will grow bigger and hotter until eventually he will explode.[2][3]

Legend

Nuke-Kubi is said to be the original form of Rokuro-Kubi.
