Eye Abilities

Eye Abilities (目の能力 Me no Nōryoku) are powers given to a person who has entered and left the Kagerou Daze with a snake as their surrogate life. Each eye ability is different, although each of them is given to a person by one of Azami's snakes. The abilities are usually influenced by an important part of the owner's life before their death (i.e. Momo wanted more attention for herself and received an ability that would gather all attention on her). When the abilities are activated, the users' eyes turn red and become similar to those of a snake.

Concealing Eyes
Me o Kakusu)

Kido's ability can divert perception away from objects and even people within two meters of herself and/or her surroundings, rendering them invisible. Conversation while being hidden also won't be heard by outsiders. Physical contact, however, breaks the effect, so it is not useful in very crowded places. Along with this vulnerability, if a person outside the two-meter bubble is familiar with someone being concealed, her power will not be as strong. Kido's ability works more when preventing people from recognizing those being hidden, rather than making them unable to be seen. She has practiced to control her ability perfectly and to not disappear all of a sudden.[1] When using her ability at full strength, she can apply it to objects outside of a two-meter radius, especially when the objects are interconnected, like a building.[2] Kido's ability also allows her to conceal her own memories.
Tsubomi Kido
Azami's ability not only allows her to fade out of notice, but she can also dull out someone's senses. She can do it to such an extent that the targeted person is no longer capable of recognizing sound, light or even their own heartbeat. It would be like to be in a completed darkened world she herself explained.[3]Azami
In both the novel route and manga 2 route Marry gained this ability. She, just like Kido and her grandmother, used it to conceal herself and others.[4] In the manga, she also used it to conceal her and her target's surroundings. Making it look like they were standing in a white world of nothingness.[5]Marry Kozakura
Stealing Eyes
Me o Nusumu)

Locking Eyes
Me o Awaseru)
Azami's ability allows her to turn people into stone. Shion inherited this power from her.Azami
Shion's ability allows her to turn people into stone. Marry also inherited part of this power from her, as she can temporarily stop the movements of others. However, using her ability causes too much of a strain to her body and physically weakens her when she uses it.[11]Shion Kozakura
Marry's ability allows her to temporarily stop the movement of whoever meets her gaze. It is not as complete as her mother's or grandmother's power as she is not able to turn people into stone, but merely "freeze" them, preventing them from moving.Marry Kozakura
Combining Eyes
Me o Gattaisareru)
Marry also has the ability to combine the powers of the other snakes, allowing her to control the Kagerou Daze and cause a number of reality-altering effects. It was given to her by Azami as she entered the Daze, allowing her to leave and re-enter the real world.Marry Kozakura
Azami used this ability to keep her snakes of the ten abilities under control. This allows her to use the full force of her abilities. She can also use this ability to control the Kagerou Daze but if she wants to change its nature she would need at least half of her abilities.[12]Azami
Drawing Eyes
Me o Ubau)
Momo's ability can draw peoples' attention, regardless of their preferences in tastes or interests.[7]Momo Kisaragi
Azami's ability not only allows her to draw peoples' attention, but it also causes them to lose focus of anything besides her entirely, making them drop anything they might be holding and fall to their knees.[13]Azami
Marry's ability is similar to her grandmother's. She can draw someone's attention, making them lose focus on their surroundings.[5]Marry Kozakura
Opening Eyes
Me o Samasu)

Takane's ability allows her to remove her conscious from her body and take it wherever she wanted. She can't manifest her spirit-self "Ene" in the real world.[14] She can transform her spirit-self into a cyber-being.[15] As her cyber-self, she also possesses the power to control electronic systems. While using this power, her body temporarily loses consciousness.[2]
Takane "Ene" Enomoto
Azami's ability allowed to manifest her spirit-self in the Kagerou Daze. For reasons unknown she lost her body and was using this ability to stay "alive". [16]Azami
Marry gained this ability in both manga route 2, as in the novel route. In the manga route, she was able to project her spirit in the real world thanks to a fallen over TV.[17] In the novel route however she used it to turn into cyber-being like Ene.[18]Marry Kozakura
Focusing Eyes
Me o Korasu)

Hibiya's eye ability allows him to perceive objects, locations, and people that are far away, from an aerial view.[2]. If he looks at an object he can see a vision of its owner, but if that person is seeable without the help of this ability, Hibiya will not see anything[19]. In the novels, he developed this ability further. He's able to work his ability over phone waves. This allows him to connect directly to phones in the Kagerou Daze, and speak with people on the other side. In order for this to work, he has to focus and concentrate very hard on the phone in his hands.[20]
Hibiya Amamiya
Hiyori can use her ability to find anything on her mind, but it doesn't work if she doesn't know the person's face or the form of what she's looking for.[21] Hiyori Asahina (manga only)
Azami's ability is the same as the other two. However, she only has to use a description of something to find it. For example, the place where her house was built she found by looking for a place while thinking "the least noticed place in the world".[22] Azami
Awakening Eyes
Me o Samasu)
Konoha's ability gives him the power to remake his body into one that his creator, Haruka, finds "ideal". As Haruka was physically weak and sickly, this meant for him to become supernaturally strong. However, Haruka rejected the body so his snake assumed control of the body instead, leaving Haruka trapped in the Daze.[23]Konoha
Azami's ability gives her the power to remake her body at will, surrounding her with a mass of black snakes. She can use this ability to heal from several fatal gunshots and presumably other otherwise lethal wounds.[24]Azami
While not it's own power, but the snake of the Clearing eyes did forcefully used 'Awakening' to it's liking when it took control over Konoha. It has shown to be quite an expert when using this ability. In the manga, he changed his appearance to avoid being detected by the 'Focusing Eyes.[25] In the novels, he used it to gain immunity against the 'Concealing Eyes'.[26]Snake of Clearing Eyes
