School Hokuto Shin Ken


(無想転生, Literally meaning: Nil-Thought Rebirth) 
The ultimate secret technique of Hokuto Shin Ken. It is said that only one who embraces the true nature of sorrow can awaken its power. Kenshiro was the first man in Hokuto Shinken's 1800 year history to master Musō Tensei during the epic struggles against his friends and great rivals. Musō Tensei allows the user to achieve a state of "nothingness", impervious to attacks, and commune with the souls of fallen rivals (i.e. Toki, Ryūga, the Nanto Roku Seiken and later Raoh) in order to harness their techniques.
Raoh also learned Musō Tensei when his feelings for Yuria unlocked the profound love and sadness within his heart.
Kenshiro Kasumi was rumored to know this technique.
Kaioh was able to disorientate Kenshiro with the distortional nature of his ultimate technique Anryu Tenha. Suffering the space sickness, Kenshiro lost control of the Musō Tensei and was unable to suppress his fighting spirit. Kaioh also absorbed Kenshiro's ki with his demonic aura (Matōki), weakening his attacks and ultimately defeating him. Kenshiro learned the secrets of Hokuto Sōke after this fight, perfecting the Hokuto Shinken style in his complete form. With Kaioh's technique nullified, Kenshiro was able to counter its effects.
