The Finger Stab is a physical, martial-arts technique which is used by Taopaipai.


This is an assassin's technique utilized by Taopaipai, and one of his physical arts. By utilizing his strengthened fingertips, Tao thrusts through the opponent's forehead. The technique kills the target before they can even utter a sound.



The Finger Stab, as portrayed in the manga.

  • This technique was censored in the anime, unlike its counterpart, the Tongue Stab. When Tao used it to kill the tailor who made him new clothes, the tailor was blacked out and the motion resembled a pressure point strike rather than a stabbing motion. This contrasts the manga, where it is quite clear his finger stabs through the skull.[2]
