I Know Mortal Kombat: Sora applies a lot of skills he learned from video games into ruling a race. For example, he learned how to handle domestic affairs by playing a lot of Civilization. However, he knows that despite being a master at Dating Simshe's absolutely clueless about what love is like.

When Shiro calls him out on thisSora, visibly wry with remorse, mulls that perhaps he ran his mouth off out of shock, and to his credit, later makes up for it by changing his opinion towards Stephanie's grandfather upon discovering that he was far smarter than he let on see the Pet the Dog entry below.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sora is smug, condescending and perverted at his worst, and will not hesitate to manipulate people if it suits him, but when push comes to shove his heart is always in the right place. Being both extremely intelligent and highly charismatic, Sora is able to be logical minded but keeping a healthy dose of expressions, drawing people who don't really know any better to him. He can get extremely over the top and passionate in contrast with his quiet and reserved sister.
It only gets worse with time. He's aware that being caught cheating is grounds for instant defeat, so he works around this rule by cheating as discreetly as possibleand even then as a countermeasure against cheating opponents. Sora is extremely perverted and makes no attempt to keep this secret.
He jumps at every opportunity to see Stephanie in a state of undress, twisting and contorting the laws of Disboard to force these outcomes. His only limitation that he has set is he refuses to see or do anything perverted with Shiro, by virtue of her being his sister and only eleven years old, though Shiro herself doesn't seem to mind.
Shiro remarks that Sora could've just ordered Stephanie to belong to him or be his slave, instead of falling in love with him, out of fear of staying single for the rest of his life. He properly recognized that he Didn't Think This Through. Believe it or not, he's an in-universe example because he can't allow anything rated R to happen around Shiro, because she's a little kid.
Because he's from another world, he and Shiro lack spirits that all life in Disboard possess, granting him immunity from spirit-influencing spellssuch as the Sirens' seduction magic.

Even though the Light Novel and Movie both deliver how soul-crushing it is for Riku to send people to their deaths, anyone who does has done so with a smile on their face, knowing that their leader wouldn't let them die in vain.
It's a stark contrast to Blank's way of going about relationships with Elkia, because Sora constantly builds up an image of untrustworthiness, while Riku was trusted from the very beginning. Even the formation of the Ghosts shows Riku noting how this entire thing is stupid, only for the Ghosts to agree and go with it anyways, because they're happy to support a cause that's worth dying for.

Like her brother, she possesses eidetic memory and is able to learn and recall a vast amount of information quickly and accurately. Sora has stated that she has beaten a chess program written to beat a grandmaster twenty times in a row, and she herself has stated that chess is no different from Tic-Tac-Toe. It has also been stated by Sora that she fluently speaks 18 languages, and learned to read Imanity in 15 minutes.
She is also incredibly skilled in first-person shooters due to her ability to predict the movements and bullet trajectories of her opponents. These predictions are more focused on mathematical probability rather than psychological observation and deduction, unlike Sora.
Weaknesses While a genius, Shiro has trouble dealing with the human aspects of games, like reading human opponents and predicting their moves.
Another of her weaknesses is the fact that she can't swim, and is afraid of snakes. A human player doing something unpredictable can unsettle and confuse her, and she relies on Sora to tell her when a human opponent is leading her into a trap, as shown in their chess game with Tet.
