- The Saint of Killers is armed with two Walker Colt revolvers that were made from the sword of the Angel of Death, when he took up the latter's role as the reaper (long story). Those guns have special properties: they never misfire, they never run out of bullets, every bullet shot will always prove fatal to their targets and they never miss. Impressive as they are, however, they are not without their limits. The guns specifically cannot harm someone as powerful as God when he is sitting on the Throne of Heaven (i.e. Universal-Class entities with enough power to create/destroy a universe and warp reality), and, if the target has a sufficient level of regenerative capacity, they could survive the wounds inflicted upon them by the bullets (Cassidy survived getting shot. Make no mistake, he was heavily injured, but considering his high level of regeneration it wasn't something he couldn't recover from in the end. However, keep in mind, this is actually a writing mistake, as Garth Ennis confessed in his answer later on to a fan who asked about how Cassidy survived a shot from the colts at the end of a reprint of the issue in which that happens (it was a section which answers some of the questions sent by the fans, or so I recall it, I could be wrong about where I've read it, but he did say it), but, he never offered an explanation/justification for this within the narrative and left it as it is, hence, this limitation).
- The Saint of Killers is invulnerable. No, not simply ridiculously durable, genuinely invulnerable. It hasn't been made clear why, he just became so after he left Hell as the reaper. The man has withstood a hail of bullets, a speeding car, tank shells, a mountain collapsing on top of him, and even a nuclear missile to the face all without so much as a scratch left on him, completely and perfectly unfazed, never even moved him an inch. Now the reason why I say he's invulnerable instead of tough as hell is because his clothes, which have never been noted to have any special properties, are completely unmarred by everything the Saint took from the beginning of the story to its end. Bullets, cars, and tank shells? Not even a tear. A mountain collapsing on him? little bit of dust at worst. A nuclear missile? not even a SINGE. If I had to make a conjecture about why this is so, perhaps when the Saint took up the role of grim reaper he was endowed with mystical invulnerability as part of the job. Now you might be thinking "endowed by who? God? If so, why was he even threatened by the Saint if he could take away his invulnerability?", and that's a good question, it's highly likely that God could only take away the invulnerability (if he himself endows whoever becomes the reaper with it in the first place, that is) whilst on the Throne of Heaven where he regains most of his power, as the Saint have noted that the colts cannot harm God when he's on the Throne, so it's most likely connected to that. Oh, and the Saint has also demonstrated superhuman strength, and draws his colts faster than the eye could track.
- Completely withstanding a nuclear explosion at point-blank:
- The Saint of Killers' soul is filled with so much malevolence and hatred he kept his sentience upon entering Hell (the act of which erases everything in the mind save for fear) and even froze it entirely with his presence alone, his soul is so frigid the Devil's hand froze almost instantly when he stabbed him in the chest. The Saint can also see ethereal entities.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
