How does Yamamoto’s Bankai work?
Yamamoto’s Bankai appears to resemble a blackened katana after he activates it. While the zanpakuto does not grow any larger, its scorched edges are enough to set it apart from all the other Bankai.
Yamamoto’s Bankai holds fiery powers
Yamamoto’s Bankai is believed to be hotter than the surface of the sun during activation. Moreover, the blade can practically erase the existence of anyone if they are on its other end.
Yamamoto’s Bankai abilities
The Bankai of Yamamoto has four powerful abilities, one for each cardinal direction.
- East: The kinetic energy released from this technique is so massive that it ends up eliminating the existence of anything it touches.
- West: It is a defensive ability that enshrouds Yamamoto and his blade in flames. Furthermore, it is perceived that the surrounding temperature of this technique can exceed 15,000,000 degrees when it is activated.
- South: This ability involves Yamamoto inserting his Ryuujin Jakka into the ground. In addition, it resurrects the charred skeletons of anyone the bankai has ever killed. Besides that, the purpose of this ability is to weaken the psychological state of his opponents.
- North: This technique enabled Yamamoto to spread the flames of his Bankai to his target in the surrounding areas. However, the force of this slash is so strong that it reduces anything to ash.
