Divine Gift Edit
Yamato has awakened his divine gift, though his ability is not fully understood. His ability seem to revolve around him having enhanced strength. As Yamato is put in further situations his defensive strength increases. At one situation Yamato was able to produce black flames, it's unknown what he can do with it. However after using the ehancement, he becomes heavily exhasuted. Apparently, when Yamato uses his Divine Gift clouds encircle his location which is why his Divine Gift is called "Gathering Clouds of Heaven". After gaining the chouran, Yamato is faster and able to stretch his punches by utilizing his bandages. When not in his "Takamagahara Mode", his control and strength are still impressive against normal individuals. He has been seen using his bandages as a shield.
- Yamato likes to play fighting games.
