While Minamitsu is a rather fearsome phantom, she is still kind-hearted with a bright personality. Mainly due to her ties with the Myouren Temple she could empathize with humans and her victims, and thus chooses them more carefully. She also chats with the victims she capsizes.
- Causing shipwrecks
Minamitsu possesses the ability to cause shipwrecks. Her ability appears to be odd compared to a regular ghost, which is because she drowned at sea a long time ago. Due to a certain attachment to the ocean she kept capsizing passing ships. Besides capsizing ships she could also drown anyone near water, which goes as far as drowning someone who bathe in hot spring water, or sat peacefully near a river's edge. This is also why she is seen around places with a lot of water.
While she was alive she was the captain of a ship, but after she was drowned with it she did nothing but capsize other ships. When Byakuren eventually arrived she was asked to steer her old ship, the eventual Palanquin Ship. Currently she is a follower of the Myouren Temple.
She carries her own ladle, which she uses to flood the ships of her victims with water. In her early ghost years she used to ask for a ladle, though. She also carries an anchor which she uses in battle, but its significance aside from that is unknown.
