The number of times where he was actually in danger of losing his life was like 3 or 4 times. He was able to get through the super holy barrier on Mt. Hakurei with his power reduction seeming almost nil cause he was so powerful before that him weakened is still more than most characters can handle. He rarely has difficult in any battle. Holy arrows from characters like Kikyo or Kagome which have been super effective on demons he can catch with his bear hand and no damage. The character's journey to becoming a empathetic and compassionate personsaved the character frombeing a boring Gary Stu. He felt a too powerful for my tastes.
