The user can slide across surfaces by lightly repelling themselves away from any surface. The sliding gives the user great speed, initially allowing the user to travel as fast as a bike, though Koichi has since proven to be able to move at speeds similar to a speeding bus. Slide and Glide can be used to shimmy up the side of buildings. The Quirk can also be used to go backwards, shift from side to side and to rotate as well.
Koichi has also learned to cling to surfaces by attracting his hands and feet toward a surface instead.
Slide And Glide is also capable of limited flight, performing a mid-air jump which turns the contact surfaces on the feet into what are similar to rocket thrusters, allowing Koichi to boost into the air at high speed and high altitude. While his belief is that he can only perform two mid-air jumps before having to land, or else he will fall, it has been shown that he is capable of executing multiple mid-air jumps with no repercussion through sheer force of will.
After repeatedly falling headfirst during his childhood, Koichi's control of his Quirk weakened and he needed to contact a surface in at least three places before he could slide across it. It was also capable of levitation through sliding across the air, before Koichi's strict mother had beat out of him at a young age. Upon rescuing Makoto Tsukauchi did he instinctively use it for limited flight, and several years later learning how to execute full flight.
Koichi has stated that this Quirk can make him move far faster than a bike, but doing so is dangerous, as he has no brakes, and his power does not prevent him from taking damage from his Quirk. However, after receiving advice from Tensei Ida, Koichi learns to brake by accelerating in the opposite direction. His top speed is yet to be known.
