User Byakuya Kuchiki

Shūkei: Hakuteiken (終景: 白帝剣, Endscape: White Imperial Sword; Viz "Last Sight: White Emperor Sword") is a technique of Byakuya Kuchiki's Bankai, Senbonzakura Kageyoshi.


This condenses each and every single one of Byakuya's blades into a single potent sword, drastically increasing its cutting power. The spiritual energy and pressure this form releases is immense. The blade appears bright white, and its aura takes the form of a bird, earning it the name Hakuteiken (白帝剣, White Emperor Sword). Pure white wings and a halo-like circle, made of concentrated spiritual energy, form on Byakuya's back. The blade can cause aggravated injuries in a single blow,[1] and the wings can be used for flight.[2]
