Hyoso-Hojin is the name of Suo's Purify Weird Soul attack. He can use it during a Purify Weird Soul sequence, provided he participated in the combo that triggered it. Unlike most other PWS, it has a set direction and may therefore miss.

Hyoso-Hojin is a multi-hitting attack and adds a moderate amount of energy to the gauge. It is thus better suited as the second PWS in a chain, so that it can help increase the damage of subsequent PWS.


"Ougi" translates as "secret skill". In the English version of the game, Suo is the only character to use this to introduce his PWS. Most other Einherjar say "finishing strike", and Jun, the only other Samurai, says "blade art". However, in the Japanese version, most characters use "ougi" to introduce their PWS, as it can also be translated as "finishing strike".
