Abilities and Powers[]

Skilled Marksman: Cross is shown to be skilled with his gun-like Innocence in all of its forms and can fire his gun rapidly, to the point where a Level Four Akuma couldn't see more than one shot out of six.[1]

Scientist: Before becoming an Exorcist, Cross was a renowned scientist.[2]

Sorcery: Cross is noted to be quite skilled and well-versed in magic, able to use spells. With these spells, he has been seen binding Skull sorcery, disguising himself as a Skull, transporting people from one location to another, and binding the Innocence of a deceased Exorcist, Maria, to himself, allowing him to use her Anti-Akuma Weapon. The incantations Cross has been seen using[3] are the same as the ones Skulls have been seen using,[4] though the final command ("Take Effect, Bind" in Cross' case and "System Conversion, Arise" in the Skull's case) seems to change the intent of the spell.

Akuma Modification: It is revealed by Bookman that Cross has the unique ability to convert Akuma, making them work under his orders.[5] The method of this conversion however is unknown, and converted Akuma who slip out of Cross' control and back under the Earl's influence automatically self-destruct, destroying their soul.


Cross Marian - Judgment

Cross Marian's Judgment

Judgment (断罪者(ジャジメント), Jajimento): This equipment-type Innocence takes the form of a large caliber silver auto-revolver. Any bullet released by the revolver is enchanted as an Innocence weapon. A symbol in form of a cross can be seen wherever these bullets hit (even on barriers). Cross was able to fire several bullets in rapid succession, often emptying his rounds in a split-second. It was later revealed under the influence of Apocryphos, the Judgement no longer recognized Cross as its wielder. 

  • Bullets of Condemnation: These bullets do not stop until they have hit their target, even if they are embedded in something else along the way.[6]
  • Arrow Of Original Sin (原罪の矢, Genzai no ya): Forms the shape of a demon-like bow around Judgment as a cross symbol appears in front of it.[7]
  • Sin Annihilation Level: Cross can temporarily boost his synchronization rate with Judgment to increase the damage dealt with his attacks. He is seen using the "Triple Damage" level against Lulu Bell.[8]
Cross Marian - Grave of Maria

Grave of Maria

Grave of Maria (聖母ノ柩(グレイヴ・オブ・マリア), Gureivu obu Maria): This parasitic-type Innocence doesn't belong to General Cross himself, but to Maria, an Exorcist with a parasite type Innocence. It has been remarked by Allen that Cross is able to use magic to control Maria's corpse during a fight therefore allowing him to also use her Innocence. It takes the form of a large, flattened coffin wrapped with a long chain. When the chain is removed, the coffin opens to reveal a beautiful woman in a fancy dress with a large bow tied over her eyes, which makes it slightly reminiscent of a butterfly. This 'woman' is in fact the corpse of Maria. Lavi has pointed out that Cross Marian's use of the "Grave of Maria" anti-Akuma weapon is unorthodox and forbidden.[9]

  • Magdala Curtain (聖母ノ加護(マグダラ・カーテン), Magudara kāten), Maria uses her song to create illusions that can conceal the presence of others.[10]
  • Carte Garde (脳傀儡(カルテ・ ガルテ), Karute garute) which allows her (or Cross) to control the person's movements by affecting the brains of both humans and Akuma.[11][12]
