The capacitor installed on each boot

The Metal Boots (金属ブーツ)[1] are a part of the Striders' basic uniform. This metallic footwear has a small Plasma Capacitor installed in their heels[1], which accumulates and releases small bursts of plasma energy when activated.

By concentrating plasma energy in his feet[2] the capacitors can release a burst of plasma whenever Hiryu slides[1], which enhance the strength of the kick and allows him to slash through Light Troopers and metal grates[2]. They can also be used to perform a Double Jump by releasing the accumulated plasma at once during a jump, the plasma force allowing a second jump while in mid-air.[2]
