The Kidō Corps (鬼道衆, Kidōshū) is a separate branch of Soul Society's military that excels in the art of Kidō. They, like the 14th Division, are not counted amongst the primary divisions of the Gotei 13.
Following the Collapse the organization itself was crippled; their Commander-in-Chief, Yamada Suigetsu, was killed in an ill-fated attempt to stop the formation of the Reikai and the survivors were subsequently amalgamated into the Gotei Remnant. However, the surviving Vice Kido Chief, Myōga Hisamaru would later take leadership of the remaining survivors.
