I. Ikki Niko’s Skills and Abilities

Ikki Niko's Skills and Abilities

Niko’s primary and basic skills are his vision, which is almost on par with that of Isagi. He also seemed to grasp the concept of Meta Vision in their match against Basterd Munchen and stopped Isagi 1on1.

Even after this, he still managed to pester Isagi, until the latter used a better version of Meta Vision to beat Niko. Isagi had to use Raichi and his abilities a bit, to shake off Niko from his tail.

Although Isagi did manage to beat him later on, Niko was only just understanding the concept of Meta Vision. If Niko keeps training more, he can raise the level of his vision further.

  • He recently managed to awaken Meta Vision but doesn’t know how to fully utilize it.
  • Niko has a pretty good amount of Spatial Awareness, which is why he was changed to a Defender.
  • He took the information of both his ally’s and opponents’ abilities, to make his plays.
  • His archetype is a Ball-winning Center-back, and he relies on his brain more during his plays.
  • With his vision and intelligence, he knows the most dangerous players, and exterminate them.
  • This makes him a very formidable foe on the soccer field.
