Rasputin is one of the weakest quest enemies within the game. While his HP is superior to Jack the Ripper and on the same level as that of Sonson-J, Sonson-J possess stronger attacks. Furthermore, both Ajarri and Booth, Phantom Monks, are far stronger than Rasputin.
Phantom Monk (怪僧, kaisō; FUNimation "Evil Monk"): As an Phantom Monk, Rasputin has access to some special, physical techniques of unknown origin. Out of all three of the Phantom Monks, however, Rasputin is the weakest and doesn't exhibit all of the special capabilities of a Phantom Monk(The brunt of these abilities is only displayed within his boss fight in Soul Eater: Monotone Princess).

Enhanced Durability: Rasputin claimed that not even bullets have been able to affect him.
The night before their Supplementary Class Lessons Maka and Soul faced off against Rasputin. Maka managed to deal the Evil human a kick that sent him crashing through a church window, slamming him onto the floor inside the building. As Maka readied her next attack, Soul claimed that Rasputin's soul was now his. Despite Rasputin commenting "Don't waste your time!! Not even bullets have any effect on me!!", Maka, being a Scythe Meister, and Soul made quick work of Rasputin, slicing him in half. His soul was then devoured by Soul.
- Rasputin may have been a reference to the Rasputin who manipulated Tsar Nicholas II because the Bolsheviks tried to kill Rasputin in several ways including being shot several times. Rasputin mentioned that bullets was ineffective against him.
