He has shown remarkable endurance and stamina. In combat with Sang Manduk, even though he was stabbed in the back several times, he did not so much as flinch. He was also able to function well after gaining severe wounds from Mori Dan.

In chapter 304, He dramatically increased his power using The Cross which allowed him to overwhelm even one of the keys, i.e., Park Ilpyo.
3. How Did Park Mujin Destroy The Island In Episode 1?
In the first episode of the anime, we saw Park Mujin obliterate an entire island just to take out people that threatened him. He destroyed it by manipulating gravity using his Charyeok, Longinus.
4. What Is Charyeok? Can Park Mujin Use It?
[Proceed with caution – SPOILERS ahead]
Long ago, humans, monsters, and gods lived together on Earth. After being suppressed by the monsters for ages, the chieftess of a human clan named Ungnyeo asked the Gods to lend them their power. This was how Power Borrowing was born.
However, this original method of power borrowing had noticeable drawbacks and was eventually abolished and changed into the new Charyeok system that is in practice now.
Hence, Charyeok is the act of borrowing power from a Supernatural being such as a God, Demon, Spirit, or Ghost and manifesting it by forming a contract with them.
Upon accessing that power, the user is able to shape it through their imagination and make it their own unique ability.
In the Anime, Park Mujin’s Charyeok has been revealed. We have seen him obliterate an entire island and manipulate gravity to suppress others. He can do this thanks to his Charyeok, Longinus.
He can access his Charyeok through his right hand, which has the shape of a cross imprinted on his palms.
In addition to gravity manipulation, it also allows him to use a barrier-like ability. He can also summon Longinus’ avatar to attack his enemies.
Furthermore, he can crush things by increasing the gravity, change the trajectory of blades, and squeeze people in the air until they implode.
5. Why Did Park Mujin Organize “God of High School”?
[Proceed with caution – there will be spoilers from the Webtoon]
It was revealed in the first few chapters of the Webtoon that Park Mujin organized the G.O.H to find specific “keys”.
A key is basically a very powerful type of Charyeok that can seal and awaken abilities in mortals and gods alike. Described as “the existence that will drag the gods from heaven”, Keys are Charyeok that’s born out of intense hatred and wrath.
There are only two known Keys out of which one is the Nine-Tails Guardian, i.e., the Charyeok of Park Il-Pyo.
