Fudo is a relatively tall, dark-skinned man. He is quite muscular, but slightly overweight at the same time. He has black crew-cut hair and brown eyes.
He was a sleeveless variant of the standard Shinigami Shihakusho.
Shōdo is a brave and bold warrior. He does not hesitate to face opponents many times more powerful than him. Moreover, he has a strong sense of justice and loyalty, as he did not want to listen to Anders Schäfer's "divine punishment" when referring to massacring Fudo's colleagues.
He is rather hot-tempered and violent in combat. Whilst he gets along well with Kana Enodoriko and addresses her with some respect, he is easily irritated by Kurokawa Tadayoshi's sometimes brusque manners.
Fudo participates in the battle to defend Seireitei from the Vandenreich's onslaught. Most of the members of his Division are slaughtered by Sternritter "H", Anders Schäfer, until only he and the 4th Seat Officer, Kana Enodoriko, remain on the battlefield.
The two release their Shikai and attempt to defeat the Quincy, but to no avail. Just as he is about strike back, Kurokawa Tadayoshi arrives unexpectedly and blasts the enemy with Hadō #33, Sōkatsui. He joins Enodoriko and Shōdo in their struggle afterward.
Kana and Kurokawa try to distract Schäfer in order to allow Fudo to get a direct hit with his Zanpakutō. In the end, their tactic proves ineffective, as the Sternritter is simply too powerful for them. Shōdo reacts with fatal delay to Tadayoshi's warning and is promptly obliterated by the unfazed Quincy.
