The Harmony characteristic allows it to combine with other type of Dying Will Flames to create a new one. The Oath Flame is a combination of Sky and Earth Flame. The Flame of Wrath is hinted as a fusion of Sky and Storm Flames due to the dual attribute of Ligre Tempesta di Cieli. Tsuna's Zero Point Breakthrough: Revised utilizes the Harmony characteristic, as it "harmonizes" with the enemy's Flame and absorbs it.
The Sky Flame was also shown having the ability to petrify, as seen on the effects of the Ligre Tempesta di Cieli's Ruggito di Cieli.
