Icy Wind
Technique Type Zanpakutō Spirit
User Sode no Shirayuki

Icy Wind is a technique used by the manifested spirit of Rukia Kuchiki's Zanpakutō, Sode no Shirayuki.


Sode no Shirayuki can generate an icy wind by blowing cold air through her cupped hand. While usually used to distract an opponent,[1] this attack is potent enough to freeze several unseated Shinigami solid where they stand and send a captain-level combatant flying away.[2] Sode no Shirayuki can also generate several blades of icy wind in her hand and throw them at her opponent, encasing whatever they hit in ice. She can protect herself from outside attacks by generating a large orb of icy wind around herself.[2] She can also use this technique to deflect attacks, and can generate it from her hand if necessary.[3]
