Shion (spirit)

Full Name












Blood Type



Zanpakuto spirit

Power Level


Shion (紫苑 lit. I'll never forget you; remembrance) is the Zanpakuto spirit of Kai, who appears in the Zanpakuto Escapement arc, and in many other stories involving Kai.


Shion has short black hair and blue eyes. She wears a black cloak similar to Kai's attire when he releases Shion.

Personality and Traits[]

Shion is a shy secluded individual. She does seem to express emotions due to her nature of existence, and is always happy to be with her friends. However, she is somewhat emotionally fragile, becoming deeply enraged with the right provocation.

Powers and Abilities[]

  • Masterful Swordsmanship: Shion is highly skilled at handling her weapon, being able to fight with it using her right or left hand.
  • Ice and Light Manipulation: Shion has been shown to be able to manipulate ice, and also light, something Oboro was unable to do until Shion returned to his side.
Special Abilities:
  • Omoide (思い出 lit. Memories): When used, Shion becomes a mental weapon, attacks become mental strikes, that when they connect, will attack the barriers of an opponent's mind, until they shatter. When a strike touches the opponent's mind, Shion can sift through thoughts, and even with enough effort, gain control of his opponents body. How hard it is to break into one's mind is determined by their mental strength, and how much energy Shion uses during mental attacks.
  • Hishoto (氷ショット lit. Ice Shot): This attack allows Shion to shoot blasts of ice energy out of it's blade, increasing the range of slashes, stabs, and can even make a block offensive.

Behind the Scenes[]

Relationship with Kai in the Zanpakuto Escapement arc and other Stories[]

Kai and Shion are shown to be best friends, and are extremely close. During the Zanpakuto Escapement arc, Shion acts as a spy in an attempt to help thwart Amakuni.

Once this deception is revealed however, it is shown that Shion returns to her blade form on whim, as she shares her power with Kai and does not restrict his access to her power, and neither does he restrict his power from her allowing them to both be of equal power.

When alone, they are shown to sit down and chat about events and other such things, and even spar to become stronger.


  • Shion is one of the few Zanpakuto who did not betray their partner, as Shion acted as a spy for Kai during the Zanpakuto Escapement arc.
