Hyoubu Kyousuke is the most powerful high level multi-powered esper. He has grey colored eyes and silver hair (white in the manga). Despite being over 80 years old, Hyoubu seems to never age, since he uses his powers to maintain his youth. The only physical difference, is the color of his hair, which was originally black. He has a bullet-shaped scar on his forehead and two others on his torso from when he was shot by Saotome.
Hyoubu is the most dynamic character throughout both the parent anime and the spin-off anime. He often has a confident smirk or smile that helps to cover his other emotions. He is arrogant, intelligent, determined, stubborn, competitive, confident, gentle, caring and heartless towards the enemies of espers. He is like a father figure to his organization. He also has a tragic past, he joined the army in a young age to put his powers to good use to help humanity, but before the war ended, he was betrayed and shot by his superior, whom he trusted most. As a result of witnessing how espers were abused and controlled by normals as well as his own attempted assassination by his superior (only because they feared his power and saw him as a weapon), he made a pact to never leave this world until he takes revenge on the normals. In The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke series, his opinion gradually becomes more flexible as his character develops.

Powers and Abilities
Kyousuke is a highly skilled ESP user who has a wide range of abilities (which is very rare), even more than Fujiko Tsubomi's. He can use most of them simultaneously and combine them which make him a very capable fighter. While originally he possessed only psychokinesis, after seeing his friends die one by one in front of him, somehow his friends' abilities transferred to him, such as electrokinesis, teleportation, psychometry, pyrokinesis and hypnosis. He also has a Full Power mode in which he unleashes all of his life energy when he "gets serious" that is first hinted when he speaks about it in the 49th episode of ZKC. This level of power seems to be the Unlimited Mode that is shown in The Unlimited - Hyoubu Kyousuke, a show based on Hyoubu that has a more serious and darker tone.
- He is named after Prince Hyobu, the father of Murasaki in The Tale of Genji.
- He has proclaimed himself to be the "Black Fallen Angel".
