In her child and teen form, Kagura's abilities are almost non-existent, but in her Adult form, she has reached her awakened state. She possesses the ability to freely manipulate space and can teleport or tear rifts in reality.
In her fully Awakened form as True Kagura, she has the ability to instantly smite any Yōma. She has total mastery of spatial manipulation and could even flip the world upside down.
Deep Crimson: While on a school trip, Asuka and her friends found her being chased by yōma and saved her. At first glance, she speaks like a child, but she says things that no child would. Lacking almost any ability to defend herself, she relies on her guardian Naraku for protection. 
- Kagura's name (神楽) is a noun for ancient Shinto music and dancing.
- Kagura's name is also the highest possible rank/title for a shinobi to achieve, so it is possible that she may be the embodiment of the rank itself.
