According to Amō, Ratarikov is as strong as a Class A Border agent, if not stronger. He fought on even ground with Kazama, Border's Number 2 Attacker and Number 3 overall combatant for most of their fight, and had still attention to spare to attack Murakami, although he was defeated in the end. He is quite perceptive, as shown when he was able to deduce that Chameleon could not be used in conjunction with other Triggers, and noticed that a still undetected Kazama was going to attack Gatlin just by the slight movement of a trion soldier.
Despinis allows Ratarikov to produce and control telekinetically up to 16 circular blades. Although initially he used only half, he later started fighting with all of them. Ratarikov seems to be very skilled with this Trigger. He was able to briefly force Border's four highest ranked Attackers on the defensive and fought on equal ground with Kazama. He managed to redirect a projectile moving at a speed of 30 mph by hitting it sideways three times, showing great accuracy. Offensively, his Trigger is rather flexible, allowing for speedy strikes from multiple angles. By combining some of the blades, their size and speed are increased. Although Despinis is undoubtedly intended for long range combat, Ratarikov can use it efficiently also in mid and close range.
A small device that, when attached to a flat surface, for example a wall, creates a hole large enough for a person to pass through. It is possible this Trigger does not work if the wall is too thick. When the effect is terminated, the surface is restored to its pristine state.
