Adaptive Barrier (アダプティヴバリヤー, Adaputivu Bariyā) is a technique used by Ledas. Like his standard Energy Barrier, this technique is used primarily to shield against an oncoming attack. To use it, Ledas places both hands out from his sides, fingers apart, which causes a large sphere of ki to form around him. It is hollow on the inside. However, this technique has one difference from the standard barrier. If it takes too much damage, the sphere will overload and convert into an explosive wave, which will knock back and damage anything nearby. A good deal of this attack's power comes from its surprise - most opponents would not expect the barrier to suddenly explode into a separate attack, so they may let their guard down a bit while standing outside. In addition to having it explode via direct contact, Ledas can detonate the barrier at any time. If there is no need to detonate it, the attack may be dispersed.
