Sonído (響転 (ソニード), Sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound", Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") is a high-speed movement technique of the Arrancar. It is equivalent to the Shinigami's Shunpo and the Quincy's Hirenkyaku, which are roughly equal in terms of speed.[1]


While somewhat similar to Hohō in regards to function and speed, Sonído appears to be more instinctual, seemingly requiring no previous knowledge to perform.[2] It produces a different sound; rather than the swishing or sometimes silent Shunpo of the Shinigami, Sonído makes a booming or static noise. Though the technique is exhibited by most Arrancar, the proficiency with which it can be performed is limited only by the individual, with Zommari Rureaux possessing the fastest Sonído among the Espada.[3] Coyote Starrk is also a notable user of Sonído, being able to cover tremendous distances at such speed that his Sonído seems akin to teleportation.[4]

Chōkasoku (超加速, Super Acceleration) Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, in her childhood form, accelerate her movements in what appears to be a basic form of Sonído. When she does so, her mask's eyes glow, and she accelerates through the air at speeds which surprise Ichigo Kurosaki when taken off-guard.[5] Chōkasoku
Gemelos Sonído (双児響転 (ヘメロス・ソニード), Hemerosu Sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound Twins", Japanese for "Twins Sound Ceremony") By introducing an additional step into the normal Sonído movement, Zommari Rureaux can generate a number of clone-like afterimages of himself, with up to five of these clones being sustainable simultaneously. Because of this, Zommari claims he is the fastest Espada.[6] GemelosSonído
