Superhuman Characteristics, Magic, Stat Amplification, Flight, Soul manipulation, Illusions, minor reality warping (can make real Illusions), High level regeneration (came back from nothing), Telekinesis(he can bypass durability with this), explosion generation, monster creation, immortality (has been alive for over a thousand years), body manipulation (can extend his claws)
DC/Potency: At least Island level+ with his incomplete body(even after having his body Destroyed he was still feared by practically everyone and still dwarfed everyone in power, casually nuked a large city while casing and unknown amount of damage to the rest of the Northern capital with a wrist flick, the northern capital is a large Island), could generate earthquakes by stomping, scales above Drum who is capable of bringing mass Destruction to massive cities and the castle that's several KM tall, scales above clarinet who could vape a mountain and miles of a city At least Country Level With his complete body(after getting out of Pandora's box he used his Telekinesis to attack a country thousands of KM away from his position, this caused an earthquake that could be felt across most of the largest continent on the planet, it was stated that within minutes of exiting the box he had already wiped out an entire nation,after drinking Pandora's blood to restore his power a second time he bombarded the entire planet with a casual attack) Higher (he can amp his stats by drinking the blood of humans/demons or consuming their souls, a holy person amps it even higher than humans and demons)
Durability: at least Island level+ with his incomplete body(took loads of punches from a sub-mazoku Hamel without a scratch while Hamel bloodied his knuckles, Hamel had surpassed bass at this point, took no damage from oboe going all out, oboe was the second most powerful demon before Hamel received his final upgrade) at least country level with his complete body, Higher (same as his DC, he can amp his stats by drinking blood or consuming souls, a holy person amps it higher than humans and demons) Regeneration makes him incredibly hard to kill
Speed: At least Hypersonic+ (Far superior to Sizer), at least MHS attack speed(his energy beams could reach high above earth and cross the planet in seconds)
A demons life is tied to their magic, if the magic depletes then they'll turn to Stone and crumble away(chestra has overcome this with his ability to absorb magic through drinking blood and consuming souls)
His regeneration is only as good as the amount of magic he holds
After regaining some more of his body and Hamel confronting him, chestra showcased some of his power by nuking the city(note the castle they're in is about the size of a town) and causing unknown amounts of damage to the Northern capital (northern capital is a large Island):
After escaping Pandora's box he used his Telekinesis to cause an Earthquake in sforzando (he was all the way in the Northern capital for a sense of range), this could be felt across most of the continent:
Lute who clarinet clarifies his status in the world before his death(it's noted in his battle with bass that lutes magic is powerful enough to blow away a mountain which is completely believable for obvious reasons):
After chestra gave Hamel some of his own blood Hamel fully transformed into a demon even surpassing oboe in power(chestra actually started dodging attacks) but even then chestra easily ripped his Heart out and consumed it stating he finally returned to his full power:
After chestra regenerating his body and drinking Pandora's blood to restore his power once again(Hamel killed chestra only for him to completely regenerate his body) to show his full power he attacked the entire planet with Meteor like balls of energy, this was shown to either tear cities apart or create explosions rivaling countries in size:
After absorbing lutes blood chestra was defeated by the power of friendship and music (I'm not even kidding), music in this series can buff characters stats(it can make low level characters rival top tiers), hypnotise them, change their emotions, and even negate Regeneration(which chestra fell victim to the stat buffing and Regen negation).
Took a full beating from oboe(oboe is the second strongest mazoku after chestra before Hamel got his finale upgrade) without a scratch while oboes hands became bloody, oboe was using all of his power causing earthquakes:
When he was sealed inside Pandora's box the first time he managed to remove his flesh from his soul and partially escape Pandora's box, after being opened he fused with his soul and regained his power:
He spent the majority of the time drinking the blood of demons/humans and consuming souls to regenerate (the more magic the person has the more he can Regenerate) some examples are in DC.
But his greatest regeneration feat was after Hamel drank chestras blood draining him of his magic then completely destroying his body(it crumbled away into dust) only for him to suddenly appear as a hand piercing through oboe and consuming his blood to completely grow his body back(his hand had turned to dust but was able to just seemingly create a new one despite not having a body):
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.
Feb 13, 2020 22:47:26 GMT
Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...
Feb 20, 2020 13:42:15 GMT
Dream: ...manipulation last week.
