User Rukia Kuchiki

Juhaku (樹白, White Tree) is a technique of Rukia Kuchiki's Zanpakutō, Sode no Shirayuki.


Rukia stabs the ground, which creates a trail of ice in the direction of her intended target as small particles of ice fill the air. Freezing the target from the base up in a continuing freezing process, the ice transforms the target into ice. Parts of the target which are frozen can easily break apart or shatter.[1]

352Rukia defeats

Rukia defeats Rudbornn by freezing his roots and branches.

  • Juhaku does not appear in the Manga as a technique used by Rukia at all. However, in the corresponding event, Rukia already nullified the abilities of Rudbornn Chelute, before the remainder of their fight is shown, and the technique she uses to do this is thus unknown. However, the ground between them, his roots and his branches are frozen and falling apart in an identical manner as shown with her use of Juhaku in the Anime.[2]
