Reishi (霊子, Spirit Particles) is the main component material of Souls and all spiritual matter.

Overview

Reishi composes the spiritual bodies of Souls, including Hollows and Shinigami, and everything in Hueco Mundo and Soul Society.[1][2][3] Reishi is invisible to mortals, with the exception of spiritually aware ones such as the Quincy or Fullbringers;[4] they can, however, still interact with normal matter and produce physical effects.[5]

There is also a certain amount of Reishi in the Human World. Free Reishi tends to be found in places closer to nature. Quincy collect this Reishi to use for combat in the form of Spirit Weapons.[5] Reishi in the atmosphere is also able to be controlled freely, allowing a person to gather it under their feet so that they can stand on air.[6]

Reishi-based Techniques

Hirenkyaku (飛廉脚, Pure Flying Step) is a method which Quincy use to travel quickly over short distances. Essentially, it is the Quincy equivalent to the Shinigami's Shunpo, or the Arrancar's Sonído.

  • Platform Manifestation: An instance of Hirenkyaku that allows the user to create a platform of Reishi under their feet. It can be used in the Garganta, and Hueco Mundo.[8]

Shunpo (瞬歩, Flash Steps): The method which Shinigami use to travel faster than the eye can follow.[9]

Blue Flames: Certain members of the Wandenreich possess the ability to produce blue flames composed of condensed Reishi. These flames are powerful enough to set fire to the rocks and sand of Hueco Mundo, which are usually incapable of burning.[10]
