This article, Kidō, can be used freely on this wiki without the creators explicit permission.

Kidō (鬼道, "Demon Way", or "Spirit Way" sometimes translated as Demon Arts) was one of the four basic Shinigami combat forms, according to Sōsuke Aizen. Kidō was the technique that Shinigami used to focus their Spiritual Energy into magic spells of various powers. These spells serve a wide variety of uses such as healing, defense, or combat. The Kidō Corps is a branch of Soul Society's military which excels in the mastery of Kidō.


Each spell is graded on a scale from 1 to 99, the latter being the most powerful and the most difficult to perform. The scale is a measure of difficulty, as there can be multiple spells which share the same level. To use Kidō, a Shinigami must recite the specific incantation for the spell, which is often long and requires a few seconds to speak.

This weakness can be negated by Shinigami capable of using Eishōhaki (詠唱破棄, lit. "Incantation Abandonment"), a technique that releases Kidō without a spirit chant. While it decreases the time needed to release the Kidō, it drastically weakens the spell. While anyone well versed in Kidō can use this technique, it is most effective when done by a skilled practitioner, otherwise the spell could utterly fail. The most skilled experts are capable of using this technique to amazing effect.

Another method of circumventing the necessity, of uttering an incantation for a Kidō, is something called Kōjutsu Eishō (後述詠唱, lit. "Later Mention Incantation"), where the incantation is recited after initiating the spell to power it up. So far, only Hachigen Ushōda has been seen using this technique, in order to reinforce the nature of his Ryūbi no Jōmon during his fight against Baraggan Luisenbarn.

The power of a spell relies on the power of the user, as even a low-level spell can be utterly devastating when utilized by a high-class Shinigami.

Kidō can also be used for practical purposes as well. Renji Abarai has demonstrated that a kidō spell can be used to light a dark hallway if the spell is tweaked in the right way.

Kidō TypesEdit

There are three main types of Kidō: binding spells, destruction spells, and healing spells.

  • Bakudō (Binding spells): are a broad category of defensive spells which block or repel attacks or freezes enemies in place. This class of spells include Kidō Barriers & Seals.
  • Hadō (Destructive spells): refer to offensive spells which harm an enemy or cause damage.
  • Healing spells: do not have known names, numbers, or incantations to cast, and simply heal the target. As the user holds his hands above the patients wounds, his/her palms glow with green spiritual energy to facilitate healing. For the mechanics of healing, the patient's Reiatsu is replenished first. Then the body's Reiatsu works with the healer's Reiatsu to heal the patient's body.

Kido CombatEdit

Though Kidō is commonly used by Shinigami in combat, it has several weaknesses that make it difficult to use for that purpose. All of the spells have fairly long incantations and require concentration; because of this, the person using the Kidō leaves themselves open to attack during the duration of the incantation.

In addition, if an opponent is familiar with Kidō, there is the possibility of them identifying the spell by its incantation before it can even be used. However, highly skilled Kidō users can use various techniques to counter these weaknesses, such as Eishōhaki, Kōjutsu Eishō and Nijū Eishō (二重詠唱, lit. "Double Incantation"), which involves mixing the incantations of two or more Kidō spells together to save time and confuse ones' opponent.

A rarer use of Kidō is mixing various spells (such as Bakudō and Hadō together) for unique effects, which is the mark of a skilled user.

Kidō is commonly seen used in instances of surprise attacks, rather then all-out assaults, being most effective when one's opponent doesn't see it coming. Kidō is also usable with just the spell name and no incantation or spell number.

However, this also makes the technique rather dangerous, because the user has to move in a straight line, making it potentially fatal for the user as well because it can be easily avoided.

Incantation: I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning! Heed thy cry and bestow upon me the power of lightning!

52. Shisatsu Raikōshiden (しさつらいこうしでん, Stabbing Lightning Flash) Similar in make-up to #51, this spell forms a great deal of lightning energy to the user's hand. However, instead of using it at close range, this spell is instead fired from a distance and possesses incredible piercing strength because of it's condensed form and fast firing speed, being able to punch through an Arrancar's fortified Hierro and powerful Kido barriers easily.

Incantation: I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning! Heed thy cry and shot forth to stab my hated foes!" (私は天と地、雷のの中です!りゅういあなたの声は、刺し私の嫌って敵に記載ショット!)

Lightning kido part 2
53. Inyou Raikōshiden (いにょう らいこうしでん, Surrounding Lightning Flash) Similar in concept again to #51 & 52, this spell forms a great deal of lightning energy that acts as an aura surrounding the user's body. This spell can numb the bodies of those it touches and can easily be reformed into other lightning Kido spells, such as Raikōhō.

Incantation: I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning! Heed thy cry and unleash your wrath!

Lightning kido part 3
54. Haien (廃炎, Abolishing Flames) Fires a blast of purple spiritual energy that will incinerate a target completely when it makes contact.

Raikōhō Kido
63. Sōren Sōkatsui (双蓮蒼火墜, Twin Lotus Blue Fire, Crash Down) Essentially a doubled version of #33 (labelled as #73 in anime), this spell fires two shots of blue fire with greater potency than the single-shot variety.

Incantation: Ye lord! Mask of blood and flesh, all creation, flutter of wings, ye who bears the name of Man! On the wall of blue flame, inscribe a twin lotus. In the abyss of conflagration, wait at the far heavens." ("君臨者よ!血肉の仮面・万象・羽ばたき・ヒトの名を冠す者よ!蒼火の壁に双蓮を刻む 大火の淵を遠天にて待つ

Sōren Sōkatsui Kido
64. Ryūjin Hashira (龍神柱, Dragon King Pillars) After performing the spell eight wood statues rise through the ground before collectively firing beams of energy at the opponent. The spell takes time to activate making it impractical but good if you trap or surprise your enemies.

Incantation: Unknown

65. Shinkōshoku Hinote (しんこうしょくひのて, Scarlet Blaze) A tornado of searing flames are summoned around an enemy to entrap them. Once caught, the caster closes their fist, resulting in the flames collpasing inwards to cause a fiery explosion.

Incantation: May my enemies know redemption in the form of a fiery death!

Flame Hurricane
70. Doseihana (土製花 Earthen Flower) Causes his own reiryoku to enhance and momentarily manipulate the flow and production of reishi in the earthen terrain that surrounds him. Through this, the user is able to cause the earth in an immediate range of 50 meters to rise and form devastating spikes in mere moments, leaving the terrain virtually impossible to perform close-ranged combat in. The spikes are extremely large and can cause great damage to the surrounding area.

Incantation: Thy maiden blessed with blossom and earth. Seed of hatred spawns, fleeting lives, sudden eruption, eliminate thy suffering, a violent end!

Earth Flower

Then the ball falls on the opponent to crush them inside due to the gravity. The nebula then can either implode to crush the enemy, or explode depending on what the user wants.

Incantation: I call thee now to alight from thine palace and with thee heavenly guidance and holy blessing, obliterate my enemy, leaving no trace." (私はあなたの宮殿からそして八十八の天空の指導および神聖な天恵と降りるために抹消する跡を残していない私の敵を今電話する)

81. Saikōshōshashori (さいこうしょうしゃしょりSupreme Lighting) Shoots a large amount of electrical energy in the form of a beam. It can be fired from the fingers or the palm of the caster's hands. What makes this spell unique is that even if it doesn't kill, or even penetrate the victims, just being hit by this attack causes a type of paralysis, as the rush of electric power numbs the body.

Incantation: My right hand is the source of creation. My left hand is the shield which holds destruction at bay. Now, with both in union, let this power be released!

83. Raijū (雷獣, a beast that descends from the sky) Charges a lightning ball in his hands, which makes black swords fall from the sky, aimed towards the target.

Kurohitsugi Kido
91. Senjū Kōten Taihō (千手皎天汰炮, Thousand-Hand Bright Heaven Culling-Sear) Summons several spears of light that are all fired towards the same focal point where the intended target resides. The culminating explosion is exceedingly devastating.

The road that basks in light, the wind that ignited the embers, time that gathers when both are together, there is no need to be hesitant, obey my orders. Light bullets, eight bodies, nine items, book of heaven, diseased treasure, great wheel, grey fortress tower. Aim far away, scatter brightly and cleanly when fired

Incantation: Unknown

94. Shakahiryū (赤火流, Red Flame Current) The spell is noted to be quite easy to cast, in comparison to the other spells in the nineties. Due to the fact that a weaker version of it is largely employed as most Shinigami's basic offensive spell. The spell is however rather slow to cast as its user must first weave around himself four Shakkahō spells whom will then converge into an aura of red flames - by drawing on this aura, the caster must guide it to their hands and THEN release it, makiung the casting of this spell especially time consuming even without having to recite the incantation. It is worthy of note however, that the flames produced by this spell is said to rival that of the infamous Ryūjin Jakka in their sheer intensity.

Incantation: Ye lord! Mask of blood and flesh, all creation, flutter of wings, ye who bears the name of Man! Allure and Chastity, the mezmerzing beauty , accept with gratitude its gentle touch!

95. Teikoku Ikari (帝国の怒り, Imperial Wrath) Forms a truly devestating explosion under the user's feet that spreads outward at an alraming rate that leaves foes little chance of escape because the energy sucks everything in and adds that strength to the spell itself. This spell usually destroys everything that is caught within its blast radius, but a truly powerful Shinigami with enough spiritual force can survive, although barely and will often be incapacitated afterwards.

Incantation: Heaven's vengeance is slow but sure. Heaven's net is wide and coarse, yet nothing slips through. Become lost in the divine flash of judgement!

95. Tomoe Nagu (巴薙ぐ, Tomoe Scythe Down) Summons a massive being which fires a tri-bladed energy weapon in the shape of three Yasakani no Magatama linked at the core.

8. Shijoshin no Ōgama (死女神の大鎌 Scythe of the Death Goddess) Not even used by the Soul King, its use was considered taboo and warranted a potential exile upon use. A successful cast required a minimal of 1,000 Spiritual Aware Human Souls or Captain-Level Spiritual Signature and at least 13 hrs of constant incantation to craft and summon a Death Scythe. The Death Scythe could bypass any form of defense with its sheer power and anything it touched brought ruin/death, decimating all forms of life everywhere.

When a certain amount of time had passed, the Scythe would vanish, killing the user in the process.

Specific Kidō TypesEdit

Demonic KidōEdit

There are Kidō which cannot be used by ordinary shinigamis, this Kido are the ones created by demons themselves, it is known that Demonic Kido are much more powerful than Kido made by Shinigamis whom only tried to copy its usage from the original creators. Demonic Kido are the demons' ways of controlling a part of reality which can cause several effects, same as Shinigami kido but in a higher extent. Noone knows the number of Demonic Kido existing but is it said that thousands of it are created and thousands are yet to be created. A demon with vast knowledge of Demonic Kido may be able to negate the effects of ordinary kido and render it useless but this is yet to shown.

Henkōdō Edit

Henkōdō (変更道, "Way of Change") is one of the two hidden branches of Kidō, it is never taught at the Shinō Academy given the potentially catastrophal consequences it can impair on an inexperienced caster. Henkōdō has been described as a branch of magic known only to the most dedicated and skilled members of the Kidō Corps. Even among those though, it is not an art taught lightly; and for one to be granted tutelage in the art it is commonly required to receive explicit permission, complete with a signature from the current Kidō Corps Commander.

Henkōdō is a very hard art to practise. As to change something or even someone requires an indomitable force of willpower as the caster pits their will against the intended target; and indeed even the spiritual fragments they gather in order to cast the spell in question. The tremendous amount of strength, both of willpower and personal conviction is partly due to the fact that some Shinigami; disregarding their skill entirely are almost completely incapable of using Henkōdō to any effect whatsoever. Lacking the fundamental drive nessecary to force a change to occur. The infamous Hiroya Ginkarei being a prominent example of this.

Henkōdō's most general useage; and indeed the one whom is easiest to perform (though even this requires a tremendous amount of skill and natural affinity with the art). Is to use its magic to alter the flow of individual spells; most commonly changing the element or intended function for that select spell - this phenomenon is known to advanced users of Kidō as spell alteration. The primary reason that spells are easier to affect in this manner is because that in most cases the spells 'wills' are already tamed and therefore much less resistant to the change that the caster demands.

Due to the rarity of users whom can make any good effect of this art, there are very few actual Henkōdō spells in existence. Most of those whom DO exist being unique to the few gifted individuals capable of using their power; and those very rarely share their secrets even with others like themselves. The usual reason being that they see the few other practioners of the art (at least those worth mentioning) as fierce competition in the profession and its widely believed that this haughtiness together with the great deal of accidents involved with the art have lead to the fact that its regarded with as much suspicion and wariness as it is.

Through the milleniums though, the few Henkōdō Specialists in existence have managed to learn to accomplish a wide variety of different effects with their unique spells. But of all the talents discovered, only the art of spell alteration is concidered to be common knowledge -- the spells are split among several different categories depending on their effects. It should also be noted that the branch of Binding spells possesses spells whom are diluted versions of Henkōdō spells.

  • Perceptions: Some rare Specialists of the way of change have developed spells which relates to change how others perceive the caster, themselves or something else entirely; making them see, hear or feel things that don't exist. Play upon their emotions in order to effectively bewitch their mind and goad them into doing or behaving in manners which are atypical of themselves. Most spells relating to this category of Henkōdō are related to illusions, enchantments and general mind control - they're noteable for being easy to use in comparison to most and thus diluted and more practical versions have been designed for the way of binding. Though those spells generally don't eve n come close to the effectiveness of their original components.
  • Enhancements: Among the feats displayed by users of Henkōdō is to change the properties of an item in their own or anothers possession so as to imbue it with magical qualities. The enhancement vary from Specialist to Specialist, but it generally involves fusing the essence of Kidō with the intended object, granting it the ability to channel spiritual energy for special attacks, or to grant it special properties which can passively aid the wielder. These enhancements are usually placed on rings and other types of jewelry whom are easily worn or carried around.
  • Curses: Curses work by establishing a forced bond with one or more targets, linking the subjects to the will of the caster and thus allowing the caster, provided their resolve is strong enough; to literally change the conditions, peculiarities and situation of the targets physical body. For this reason, its widely understood that curses are especially effective against spiritual beings, where a single curse can completely redefine the victim for as long as the spell permits, provided its properly executed. In these cases, the caster strengthens the established connection to the point that it becomes more like a semi-permanent conduit - allowing the casterto more easily imbue a victim with their own thoughts, experiences and desires, sending their intentions coursing along the conduit and into a victims spiritual body, in essence; injecting and 'drugging' them with their own commands and desires, overriding their usual behavioural pattern and forcing their bodies to do as commanded.
  • Transfiguration: Transfiguration is an art which has facinated mortal spellcasters for centuries; and Kidō Masters are no exception to this. However, its widely considered one of the most frequently understood of the various applications of Henkōdō; this development was due to a mass research project enacted some time back; when a group of spellcasters flooded the Maggot's Nest and was given permission to use the inmates as guinea pigs for their various magical experiments. This sudden interest was based upon stories from the human world where mages transformed people into various critters; the Kido Corps - with their vast resources attempted these very same feats, almost always resulting in irrevocable and gruesome aftereffects for the unwilling participants, including death, permanent deformities and perhaps most facinating of all - loss of identity; the latter phenomenon actually being known to sever the bond between Shinigami and their Zanpakutō. Transfiguration, while being the second best understood concept, after alteration, is frequently treated as one of the most dangerous forms of magic in existence, and all known users are catalogued and put under constant surveilance by the rest of the Corps. The exact mechanics of Transfiguration is to change the spiritual construction of the object or individual to alter its form or shape.
  • Alteration: By far the most widely understood of all the applications of Henkōdō; the aspect of alteration differentiates itself from its twin, Transfiguration, in that its powers changes what something does as opposed to what it is; and that it, unlike Transfiguration doesn't make permanent changes, but rather briefly alters the way something works, and how it works as opposed to an all out transformation. In fact, its been commonly accepted that alteration changes actual energy as opposed to form, shape or conditions: This has made it an all time favorite of battle-oriented Kidō Masters - whom make certain to learn it as quickly as they can; due to how immensely useful it is in combat; this made the basis for the highly favored skill of Spell Alteration.
