As Spade Ace, Sakurai wields a number of specially designed weapons, chief among which is his “Spade Arts” power bow.

The Spade Arts bow can also be converted into a whip which can bind an opponent. Sakurai is a born leader and uses his abilities to seek out the weak points of his enemies. His atomic based powers also give him incredible power when kicking and striking his opponents.
