Powers & Abilities

Great Spiritual Power: As a captain of the Gotei 13, Retsu has considerably high spiritual power, she was able to crush the surrounding landscape upon the release of her Shikai, due to the great amount of reiryoku that is releases. The colour of her Reiatsu is a rose-pink.

Tengujin (天狗神, Tengu God): Retsu's sword is sealed in the form of a katana with a rose pink coloured hilt and an X-shaped tsuba. It is kept sheathed in a black scabbard on her left shoulder, tied by a piece of string.

Shikai: Tengujin is released by the slow drawing of the blade coupled with the phrase Bellow (怒鳴る, Donaru). Upon release, Retsu's blade does not physically change form but rather unleashes a great wave of crushing spiritual energy and when the blade is fully drawn, a large, tengu-like entity appears behind Retsu.
