* Both her striker unit and her weapon, the 2nd model 99 aircraft cannon are both included, and special care has been placed on the ever-important lower body clothing, which have been made as "shift:body" pieces, which are high quality non-posable body parts.
* Her ears and tail that appear when using magic power are both included, as well as replaceable parts on the striker unit that allow rotating and still propellers.
* Three facial expressions are included: a normal face, a shouting face and a happy face as if Yoshika is touching something "big and soft".
