The Pícaro (ピカロ, Pikaro; Spanish for "Rogue/Rascal") are a collective of childlike Arrancar that split off from a single Hollow, and were the 102nd Arrancar in Sōsuke Aizen's army.[1]


The Pícaro consist of 200 different child-like Arrancar.[1] Aside from their tattered cloaks, they differ greatly in appearance from each other. Notably, the one that acts as the leader has headphone-like mask fragments and typically sports a bored expression.


Due to being a collective of Arrancar children, the Pícaro fittingly have a very childish mindset. They prefer to "play" with others over hurting or eating them, though in the Pícaro's mindset, chasing unwilling victims and blasting them with Cero is the equivalent of "playing" with them. This does make it easiy to convince them into cooperation by promising to play with them later on, as Yachiru Kusajishi did.

Likewise, in their childish innocence, the Pícaro are noted not to see the world as "Hollows versus Shinigami", but rather as "good people versus bad people", and therefore refrain from eating "good people". Indeed, the Pícaro would much sooner choose to help a "good" Shinigami over a "bad" Hollow. Because of this, and Don Kanonji's kindness towards them, the Pícaro helped Kanonji defeat Sōya Azashiro as "Karakura White".


The Pícaro were once a group of Human children who were abandoned and left to die of starvation. The children became Hollows and eventually these Hollows merged together into a single Gillian, who started to feel lonely and guilty due to devouring the others. After evolving into an Adjuchas, the Hollow went to look for other deceased children to have company, turning them into Hollows and either feeding them parts of itself or assimilating them.[1]

During Baraggan Louisenbairn's reign, the Pícaro were allowed to roam free across the worlds, and when Sōsuke Aizen took over, he named them an Espada. At some point, they planned to save Yūichi Shibata from Shrieker to add the deceased child to their collective, but were disappointed to find out a Shinigami had already performed Konsō on him.[1]

After they were demoted to Privaron Espada, Aizen tasked Runuganga to keep the Pícaro inside Las Noches in order to prevent them from causing too much trouble in the Human World.[1]


Bleach: Spirits Are Forever With You[]

In the seventeen months after Sōsuke Aizen's defeat, the Pícaro, now free to roam Hueco Mundo, pursue an unwilling Nel Tu and her companions Dondochakka Birstanne and Pesche Guatiche in a game of "eternal tag". Despite the Pícaro's innocent motives, they get carried away and start firing Cero at the other Arrancar. Eventually, Pesche and Dondochakka decide to fight back and launch a Cero Sincrético at the Pícaro, knocking half of them unconscious. In response, the other half all fire Cero at once, blasting a large crater in the sands of Hueco Mundo. Bored with their current playmates, and wondering if they got vaporised, the Pícaro wonder who to play with next. With Rudbornn Chelute too unwilling to cooperate and Kukkapūro and Gantenbainne Mosqueda's whereabouts unknown, the Pícaro contemplate bothering Ashido Kanō instead, but notice they are being watched by a familiar female Arrancar. As the Pícaro reconize her as Roka Paramia, she vanishes into threads and the Pícaro try to find her using Pesquisa. When that fails they decide to make a game out of it; whoever finds Roka first wins. Grabbing their unconscious comrades, the Pícaro open a Garganta and leave.[1]

Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World[]

Powers & Abilities[]

Great Spiritual Power: As a former Espada member, the Pícaro are collectively very powerful, enough to be considered a threat to Números such as Pesche Guatiche and Dondochakka Birstanne.[1]

Power Sharing & Distribution: The Pícaro share the same amount of Reiryoku amongst their collective. If any member of the Pícaro is at risk of dying, the others pour a greater amount of Reiryoku towards that indidvidual to help them survive. Mayuri Kurotsuchi speculates that the Reiryoku is distributed through sound frequencies that average beings cannot hear.[2]

Cero (虚閃 (セロ), Sero; Spanish for "Zero", Japanese for "Hollow Flash"; Viz "Doom Blast"): Each member of the Pícaro is able to fire a powerful Cero, strong enough that the Pícaro believed it could vaporize Arrancar such as Pesche and Dondochakka. The true danger of their Cero lies in the fact that all of the Pícaro members can fire Cero simultaneously, during which they have enough power to blow a large crater in the desert of Hueco Mundo.[1]

Pesquisa (探査神経 (ペスキス), Pesukisu; Spanish for "Inquiry", Japanese for "Investigative Nerves"): The Arrancar ability to sense spiritual energy. The Pícaro mostly use this technique to find new victims to "play" with.[1]

Descorrer (解空 (デスコレール), Desukorēru; Spanish for "Drawing Back/Opening", Japanese for "Loosed Void"): A technique used by Arrancar, and sometimes others, to open a Garganta between the Human World and Hueco Mundo.[1]

Bala (虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "Bullet", Japanese for "Hollow Bullet"): This technique hardens the user's spiritual pressure and fires it like a bullet from their fist.[3]



Langosta Migratoria released.

Langosta Migratoria (戯擬軍翅 (ランゴスタ・ミグラトリア), Rangosuta Miguratoria; Spanish for "Migratory Locust", Japanese for "Playful Mock-Army of Wings")[4]

  • Resurrección: Langosta Migratoria's release command is "Play" (遊べ, asobe). Upon release, all members of the Pícaro grow transparent wings.[4]
Resurrección Special Ability: In their Resurrección, the Pícaro's ability to share power through sound frequencies is greatly increased, to the point that, mentally, they become more in-tune with each other, almost as if sharing a single consciousness.[4]
  • Enhanced Spiritual Power: While in their released form, the Pícaro's Reiatsu is noted to increase significantly. The more Pícaro are in one place, the stronger their collective becomes.[4]
  • Razor Winds: While in their released form, the Pícaro can use their wings to generate razor blades made of wind that can significantly injure numerous Shinigami soldiers.[4] (Unnamed)
  • Chuchería (菓菓楽土 (チュッチェリア), Chutcheria; Spanish for "Candy", Japanese for "Candy Paradise"): The Pícaro's strongest abililty; formed by focusing their "exchange of sounds", Chuchería generates a miniature black hole that sucks in all nearby Reishi.[5]
