Kōda is a promising trainee, having received extra points at the time of his enlistment due to having shown aptitude, and having the highest score among the members of his team. He was able to clear the simulation against the colossal Trion Warrior in 58 seconds, which, according to Ai Kitora, an individual who does not bandy about praise, is a good result for one's first try. Although he was no match for Yūma or Hyuse, with his two teammates he was able to defeat a Bamster in a split second. As a C-Rank agent, his Trigger set has only one Trigger and lacks a Bail Out function.
Kōda's Trigger of choice is Hound. He is quite skilled with it, terminating the combat simulation in under a minute, which is considered an excellent result. He first uses it in chapter 49 (episode 24 in the anime).
