Deadly Darts (デッドリー・ダーツ, Deddorī Dātsu) is a technique once used solely by Zangetsu and since been taught to various Shinigami as a part of their Zanjutsu techniques following Ichigo Kurosaki's adoption of the technique.


By gripping the cloth on the hilt of his sword, Zangetsu can swing his Zanpakutō and toss it at opponents for mid-range combat. The blade moves very quickly when thrown, and it can damage a building upon impact. If the target dodges the attack, Zangetsu can use the cloth to change the sword's direction and try to hit the target once more. By gripping the cloth, he withdraws the blade and swings it to attack again.

To compensate for most Shinigami's lack of cloth on their blades, one might use Kidō such as Hainawa or Hōrin to perform a similar function. Because Kidō is being employed simultaneously with Zanjutsu, the technique can almost be considered a hybrid of the two. The use of the Kidō enables for telekinetic control of the blade's direction, drastically reducing the need for specific aiming and enabling the blade to travel at odd angles and directions rather easily.
