When a timer is set, a clock with only one hand appears on the surface of the sphere or the glyph and the bomb explodes once the hand completes one full revolution around the clockface.

At the Dark Mage's will, each sphere can fire a powerful beam from the hole located in it, capable of generating explosions of medium size; when moved around in considerable numbers through Telekinesis, the Collect Beam 999's can continuously bombard an area of moderate size, as well as be relocated according to the target's position and chase them around. Drum carries a multitude of them (at least forty) on his person at all times, storing them inside his sleeves, and having them all emerge through the dedicated holes if need be; the Collect Beam 999's were present on him even during his stay in Black Vox.

The entire object has intricate engravings all over it.
Lance: Drum's weapon of choice is a massive lance, slightly exceeding his height in length, which appears to be entirely composed of metal.
Milk Bottle: Milk Boy possesses a normal milk bottle, but the liquid inside seems to act like a literal energy drink, allowing Milk Boy to run at speeds which outmatch even Gildarts Clive and carry a man like Cappuccino on his back at the same time, although the drink does not seem to sharpen his reflexes correspondingly as he ran full speed into a wall of icecreated by Gray Fullbuster because he didn't notice it.
Super Hi-Hi (超Ｈｉ－Ｈｉ Chō Hai Hai): After taking a swig of the liquid in his milk bottle, Milk Boy appears to gain an energy boost, allowing him to get on all fours and run at great speeds like a gorilla, even if he has a heavy object on his back.
Gold Cotton (黄金綿 Gōrudo Kotton): a valuable type of cotton, its worth per gram being more than that of gold. This is due to its rarity, which is in turn a cause of the fact that it gets destroyed upon contact with water, but it does not seem to grow in confined places. Due to this, it requires clear skies all throughout its growth to mature properly. This raises the difficulty of cultivating Gold Cotton to incredibly high levels and is purely dependent on luck.
Treasure Fishing (お宝一本釣り Otakara Ippondzuri): Using his fishing rod and remarkable sense of smell, Tai can hook any treasure within his range, even if he cannot see it. This allowed him to snag a bag of Cherry Ash from inside Roka's house while he himself stood outside.
