Ryuhou's Alter ability is "Zetsuei", a short humanoid Alter that uses flexible ribbons to attack and defend. Zetsuei always has one half of its face covered and its arms bound together. By releasing these impediments, Ryuhou can upgrade Zetsuei into its true form, a larger humanoid with a snake-like lower body. In this form, Zetsuei can move faster than the eye can see, and can also fly. It retains the ribbons from its first form, and gains two additional arms which can be fired like rockets. The end of Zetsuei's tail can also open into a buzzsaw. Zetsuei's final form, called Zetsuei Touryudan in the manga, is a harmonizing Alter like Kazuma's, contrary to its first two forms. In this form, Ryuhou is covered in sleek armor resembling that of Zetsuei, albeit lacking the many special attacks. Ryuhou gains access to Zetsuei's speed and flight capabilities. The sleek edges of the armor allow Ryuhou to cut through objects with ease. The two pieces of armor on his shoulders can also be removed and used as weapons, both separately or combined into a single blade.
