Robert Accutrone (ロバート・アキュトロン, Robāto Akyutoron) is a Quincy and a member of the Wandenreich's Sternritter with the designation "N".[1]


Robert has light brown,[2] swept back hair and a full mustache. He has shallow cheeks and wears thin-framed glasses. His attire is a variation of the Sternritter's typical white uniform, consisting of the order's signature hooded-cloak and a calf-length trench coat, which is tied at the waist by a white belt. Beneath this, he wears a shirt and a blue[2] tie, as well as white trousers and shoes.[3] He sometimes carries a silver briefcase.[4]


Robert is a stoic individual, initially ignoring the words of his opponent, 8th Division Captain Shunsui Kyōraku, and instead leaping straight into action.[3] When he speaks, he retains a rather respectful tone, even complimenting his opponent's restored morale despite his own injuries. He has displayed great confidence in Yhwach's abilities, and has stated he gains encouragement from this faith.[5] However, Robert knows that Yhwach views the Sternritter as expendable, and upon realizing that the Sternritter left in the Seireitei were going to die for Yhwach's sake via Auswählen, he becomes hysterical and ranting.[6]


The Thousand-Year Blood War arc

497Robert attacks

Robert attacks Shunsui.

Upon receiving the orders of Yhwach, he and the other Sternritter gather at the Gate of the Sun before traveling to the Seireitei in order to participate in the conquest of Soul Society.[7]

Once there, he and the others create pillars of blue flame prior to engaging the Shinigami in battle.[8] Soon, he is confronted by 8th Division Captain Shunsui Kyōraku, who has activated his Shikai.[9] As Shunsui comments on their ability to steal Bankai and notes the Sternritter are not opponents who can be defeated without the use of it, Robert suddenly attacks him, damaging his hat, but receives a kick to the abdomen in return. Momentarily releasing his Quincy: Vollständig, Grimaniel, Robert avoids Shunsui's subsequent attack and appears behind him before shooting Shunsui in his right eye.[3] During the course of the ensuing battle, Robert effortlessly shoots and kills a Riteitai from afar.[10]

511Shadow Portal

Robert manifests a portal so that the Soldat may invade.

Later, Robert is shocked by Shunsui's sudden change in demeanor in response to sensing Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto's Reiatsu.[11] Injured by the captain's subsequent attack, Robert states Shunsui has misjudged the situation, though it is admirable his morale has returned, for he and the other Shinigami fighting across the Seireitei were not the only ones to be encouraged by their boss' fight.[5] As Shunsui states such logic will not work with Yamamoto, an enormous explosion occurs in the distance, much to Robert's surprise.[12] Later, with Yamamoto's death, Robert takes advantage of Shunsui's outcry and shoots the captain several times.[13] After receiving the order from Yhwach to completely annihilate Soul Society, Robert manifests a portal and orders the incoming Soldat to advance.[14]

585Robert places

Robert places his gun against Ichigo's head.

Present when Yhwach declares Uryū Ishida will be his successor, Robert is shocked by his leader's decision.[15] During the second invasion of the Seireitei, he, NaNaNa Najahkoop, and PePe Waccabrada confront Ichigo Kurosaki alongside five other Sternritter and prepare to battle him.[16] After Ichigo escapes attacks from Meninas McAllon and NaNaNa, he puts his gun to Ichigo's head and commends him for withstanding a direct attack from Meninas before firing. However, Ichigo pushes his gun away, dodging the blast in the process.[17]

603Robert is killed

Robert is engulfed by Yhwach's Auswählen.

When Bazz-B asks him if there are any Special War Powers among the Shinigami who have arrived, he confirms that there are none.[18] Soon afterward, he activates Grimaniel and rushes toward the Shinigami alongside the other Sternritter.[19] 6th Division Captain Byakuya Kuchiki soon defeats him.[20] Eventually, a hysterical Robert confronts Liltotto Lamperd and explains how Yhwach views the Sternritter as tools for his own use before revealing that they are going to die via Yhwach's Auswählen as a beam of light engulfs him, stripping away his flesh.[21] As the light vanishes, Robert's skeleton falls to the ground.[22]


Leiden Hant: Robert wears a Leiden Hant on his hand, which allows him to activate Quincy: Vollständig as long as he is not in possession of a Shinigami's Bankai.[4]

Powers & Abilities

Reishi Manipulation: As a Quincy, he primarily absorbs spiritual energy from the atmosphere, and combines it with his own spiritual energy to form weapons.[23] He has an easier time collecting this energy in environments with higher concentrations of Reishi such as in Soul Society or Hueco Mundo.[24]

Great Spiritual Power: Robert's spiritual power is on a level comparable to or greater than that of a captain-level Shinigami.[27] During the initial invasion of the Seireitei, he fought on par with Shunsui, the captain of the 8th Division.[13]

Expert Marksman: Robert specializes in marksmanship while using his Spirit Weapon. With his skill and precision, he shot Shunsui in the eye at point-blank range,[4] and easily killed a Riteitai from a distance while looking in the opposite direction.[4][10]

Shadow: A technique which enables a Quincy to open a pathway between two different dimensions through a shadow. By placing his hand on the ground and swiftly swinging his arm outward, Robert can greatly extend the resulting shadow to manifest a towering portal shaped like the Quincy cross, allowing Soldat to move through and invade areas.[28]

Spirit Weapon

Reishi Pistol: Using his abilities as a Quincy, Robert can concentrate both spirit energy and particles in order to transform them into weapons. His favored weapon manifests in the form of a powerful handgun, which can produce a muzzle flash similar in shape to the Wandenreich's five-pointed cross emblem.[3]

  • Heilig Pfeil (神聖滅矢 (ハイリッヒ・プファイル), Hairihhi Pufairu; German for "Holy Arrow", Japanese for "Sacred Destruction Arrows"): Robert can fire small bullet-shaped Heilig Pfeil from his pistol.[29] Despite their relatively small size, they are deceptively powerful; one bullet can instantly kill and completely engulf a Riteitai in blue flames of Reishi, and can knock back someone as durable as 8th Division Captain Shunsui Kyōraku.[10][30]

Quincy: Vollständig

497Robert's Vollstandig, Grimaniel


Grimaniel (神の歩み (グリマニエル), Gurimanieru; Japanese for "Walk of God"; Viz "God's Step"): Robert's Quincy: Vollständig, Grimaniel, grants him various accessories made of Reishi, including angelic wings and a Heiligenschein shaped like a star-like Quincy Zeichen.[4]

  • Enhanced Speed: His speed is further increased, allowing him to evade a close-range slash from Shunsui and attack him before Shunsui could react.[31]
  • Flight: Using his wings, he can fly at high speeds.[32]


  • (To Shunsui Kyōraku) "Good indeed. It is quite pleasing that your drive to fight has increased. That is beyond doubt. However, you are all quite mistaken about one thing. Your leader will lose to our leader...because our spirits are also lifted when our leader fights!"[5]
  • (To Liltotto Lamperd and Giselle Gewelle) "Do you not see?! It is all over for us! We have been judged to be unnecessary in the battles to come! I would not expect newcomers like yourselves to understand! To know how terrifying His Majesty can be! The Sternritter exist for His Majesty's sake! His Majesty does not care for lies. There can be no doubt in our purpose. Those Sternritter deemed to be unnecessary will become fuel for His Majesty's "Auswählen"!"[6]
