"Most fighters wear armor to protect themselves from their opponent, but I'm the opposite. I actually wear this armor to protect my opponent from myself."
― Bui, (Yu Yu Hakusho)
"Limit off!"
― Shin releasing his limiter by activating Linchpin (The New Gate)

Also Called

  • Limit Release
  • Suppressor Removal


User can release/remove the limiters that are usually placed onto the body and abilities in order to prevent them from suffering the strain of their full power, or to protect the surrounding area from the destructive potential. By disabling these suppressors, the user can gain access to this full potential.

Restraints can range from taking off heavy weights or other such limiters worn on the body to forcefully disabling the body's subconscious of holding back.




  • May only be able to affect oneself or others.
  • Once removed, it may be difficult, if not impossible, to reactivate the limiter.
  • Prolonged release may cause strain and other side effects to the user.
