Personality

Panda is generally a very upbeat and calm individual with his own sense of humor. When he was younger, he spoke in an extremely proper form more akin to a computer but as time passed, Panda has developed his own unique personality. Panda sees humans as strange creatures and doesn't strive to be like them, while still respecting them as a species.

Panda is very sarcastic at times and tends to make light of every situation. Even while Mechamaru was trying to kill him Panda continued to poke fun at his fellow cursed corpse. It took Mechamaru to nearly destroying Panda's body for him to even become "kind of mad." Following their fight, Panda was able to sympathize with Kokichi Muta and even promises to visit his real body one day.

Abilities and Powers

Overall Skill Level: Panda is a grade 2 sorcerer and an Abrupt Mutated cursed corpse, the most advanced of his kind. With a natural affinity for jujutsu, Panda is capable of exorcising curses based solely on his physical abilities. He is highly intelligent and able to think one step ahead of his opponents in a fight. Panda's physiology in also provides a unique challenge in battle. The only way to take him down is by destroying the cores of cursed energy that act as his heart. Additionally his body is extremely durable and he's capable of using jujutsu protection to reinforce it as well.

Enhanced Strength: Due to the size and sturdiness of his body, Panda is naturally very physically strong. He can exorcise curses with simple blows, effortlessly carry allies on his back, and run clean through walls as a few examples of his base strength. Panda has also proven to be a very powerful puncher, able to stun Aoi, an exceptionally durable fighter, with a right hook as well as batter Mechamaru, a metal cursed corpse, with straight punches.

Enhanced Endurance: Panda's physiology as a cursed corpse allows him to absorb high amounts of damage. He was able to easily brush off Mechamaru's Ultra Cannon and even took the brunt of his opponent's strongest ability and survived.

High Tactical Intellect: Panda was highly intelligent from a young age due to the circumstances of his creation and his education under Principal Yaga. In a fight, Panda is highly analytical and tries to stay one step ahead of his opponent. Even Suguru Geto, a sorcerer with immense tactical reasoning, was surprised by Panda's cleverness in battle. Against Mechamaru, Panda consistently thought about every move before he made it. He was able to calculate the angle of Mechamaru's cannon so it wouldn't also hit his allies. In that same battle, Panda fooled Mechamaru multiple times by faking an injury to his cores and won that fight because his opponent underestimated his intelligence.

Jujutsu

Cursed Energy Manipulation
Great Cursed Energy: As a cursed corpse, Panda naturally possess a high degree of cursed energy. With training Panda has learned to reinforce his physical body to balance out his offense and defense. His jujutsu protection can envelop his body with cursed energy in a flash, capable of defending techniques most sorcerers would need to evade.
Cursed Corpse Cores
Panda's three cores (Anime).png There exists three cores within Panda's body: the balanced-type Panda, the power-type Gorilla, and a third core yet to be revealed. If any of these cores are damaged, Panda is unable to shift into that form until it recovers. Panda is capable of manipulating his cursed energy to fake the location of these cores, effectively compensating for these weak points.
Gorilla Mode (Anime).gif By switching to his "brother's" core, Panda can transform into "Gorilla Mode". His appearance shifts to that of a muscular gorilla while maintaining the Panda color scheme. Panda is much stronger and faster in this form but at the cost of rapidly draining his cursed energy.
While in Gorilla Mode, any strike Panda lands with resonate through the targets body using the "Unblockable Drumming Beat". The impact of the hit sends a shockwave through the user's guard, so they feel the damage even if they defend. Panda smashes through Ultra Shield (Anime).gif
