After his parasite completely heals his heart and regenerates his arm, does Migi lose any abilities except the power to locate other parasites when he's asleep?

I suppose you know this already, but to be clear, Migi does not just lose the ability to locate other parasites when he is asleep, he is completely dormant and unable to wake up and react to danger during the sleep. The information about his weaknesses is given by Migi himself on Page 190 in Volume 2:

enter image description here

Interestingly, a 70% Migi could still sense other parasites within a 300m radius after the incident (for example, in Volume 3, he detected the presence of the parasite murderer 300m away) and a 30% Migi inside Shinichi likewise enables Shinichi to see 300m far, so I see no loss in either power or ability by Migi after his "injury".

The conclusion is Shinichi's parasite Migi does not suffer from a lack of power because of his "injury" other than the weakness mentioned by Migi in the picture above.

  • It it a typo, or Migi can really sense other parasites within a 300m even when he is in 30% mode? And what do you meant by "30% Migi inside Shinichi"? Nov 27, 2014 at 12:26
  • @HashiramaSenju I meant after the incident, when Migi was awake, he sensed the murderer from 300m away. It may be a typo because there is one scene I remember where Shinichi moved to live closer to the hospital his dad was in because he doubted if Migi could sense his species from about 300m away. As for the 70% and 30% of Migi, I hope I hadn't revealed (rather minor) spoiler information to you, but he later explained that 30% of him was irretrievably lost inside Shinichi's body, so I used 70% of Migi to mean Migi after he performed surgery on Shinichi.

  • Then please edit your question. You can spoil as much as you like as long as you mark those section as a spoilers. Nov 27, 2014 at 13:25

After being 'mixed' with Shinichi, Shinichi became more parasyte-like, while migi became more human-like. This caused him to enter in 'deep sleep mode'. When he's in this mode, he won't only be able to locate other parasytes, he won't even be able to help Shinichi if he's in dangerous situation
