Menis (メニス, Menisu) is an Arrancar who sides with Patros in his plan to dethrone Sōsuke Aizen.[1]


Menis is a youthful, effeminate Arrancar. He has spiked red hair with the end in a braid and amber eyes, his outfit consists of a sleeveless blouse that exposes his mid-drift, and his sash hangs below his left hip. What remains of his Hollow mask is a jaw which rests on the upper-left side of his head, His Hollow Hole is in the center of his chest.


Like most Arrancar, Menis is arrogant, boastful, and rather impulsive, as he released his Zanpakutō immediately upon challenging Tōshirō Hitsugaya and Rangiku Matsumoto. He evidently agreed with Patros's perspective of a Shinigami leading the Hollows, and struck the fake Ulquiorra without hesitation or remorse, showing how sadistic he really is.[1]


Arrancar Arc

Menis sides with Patros in his plan to steal the Hōgyoku. When Ulquiorra Cifer shows up to stop them Menis attacks him from behind. After the three leave him for dead (not knowing that it was Aizen's Zanpakutō disguised as Ulquiorra) they head over to the Real World. While Patros takes off to find Kisuke Urahara, Menis and Aldegor engage in battle. Menis releases his Zanpakutō and takes on both Tōshirō Hitsugaya and Rangiku Matsumoto.[1]

After losing and running away from battle, he meets back with Patros only to be frozen and shattered away.[2]

Powers & Abilities

Sonído: Menis uses Sonído when he attacked the fake Ulquiorra in Las Noches.[1]

Spiritual Power: Being an Arrancar, Menis has a good amount of spiritual power.[1]


Erizo (エリッソ, Erisso; Spanish for "Hedgehog"): Menis's Zanpakutō has a green handle with a guard comprised of a half circle on both sides.

Menis's Resurrección.

  • Resurrección: It is released with the command "Stab" (刺せ, sase). In his released form, Menis grows three segmented, tail-like appendages that have sharp ends to attack with. He gains armor on his chest through which his Hollow Hole is visible. Menis appears to have the ability to lengthen these appendages to strike enemies from close and long ranges. The remains of his Hollow mask move to cover his entire face and his dark red hair covers his sides from his head down to his waist.[1]
  • Enhanced Strength: In his Resurrección, Menis strength is increased. He strong enough to break out of Hitsugaya's Hyōrinmaru ice and shatter his ice dragon too. [1] [2]
