Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Murciélago (Black-Winged Great Demon): This is the name of his Zanpakutō. Its release command is "Enclose".

- Resurrección: Enclose: Arrancar seal the nuclei of their abilities within the form of a sword, entirely different from what the Shinigami use. When they release their weapons' seals, they unleash their true power and their true form. In his released state, Ulquiorra becomes bat-like in appearance. While in this form he gains large black bat wings on his back, his hair becomes longer and wilder, and the remains of his Hollow mask centers atop his head, with two large horns extending outward to the sides towards the front.

  • Luz de la Luna (Light of the Moon): He generates green energy javelins, he can use them as melee weapons as well as ranged weapons by throwing them at an opponent.

- Resurrección: Segunda Etapa (Resurrection Second Stage): Ulquiorra is the only Arrancar among the Espada who is able to reach a second Resurrección form. In this state, his apperence changes further to resemble that of a humanoid bat.

Batman? :maybe


  • Latigo (Whip): He grows a very long and thin tail.


  • Lanza del Relámpago (Lance of Thunder and Lightning): Ulquiorra creates a javelin-like weapon using his spiritual power. He can use this weapon as a projectile or as a physical weapon. When thrown, it produces an incredibly-destructive explosion on impact.

- Sonido: An Arrancar's high-speed movement technique to achieve an enhanced burst of speed over short distances. Equivalent to the Shinigamis' Shunpo.

- Hierro (Steel Skin): A technique in which the user's reiryoku condenses, hardening their skin. The strength of Arrancars' Hierro depends on their spiritual power.

- Cero (Hollow Flash): A standard energy blast, it consists of firing a powerful blast of concentrated spiritual energy at the target.

  • Cero Oscuras (Black Hollow Flash): It is a black Cero with a green outline to it which can only be used in his released states. It is many times stronger than a regular Cero.

- Bala (Hollow Bullet): A technique that hardens the user's Reiatsu and releases it in a swift blast of spiritual energy. Though its significantly weaker than Cero, it is quicker to execute and also faster.

- Descorrer (Drawing Opening): A technique used by Espada-level Arrancar and sometimes others, to open a Garganta between the living world and Hueco Mundo.

  • Garganta Broadcast: Ulquiorra has been shown able to create a visual broadcast, similar to a television screen, using individual Garganta portals.

Other: It should be noted that most of Ulquiorra's high-end destructive feats were done in Hueco Mundo were the concentration of spirit particles is stated to be higher, so it's questionable as to whether this significantly affected his performance or not. However, it's largely irrelevant as the natural home of the Arrancar is Hueco Mundo, where their natural power level would be shown and thus in the neutral OBD setting, Ulquiorra's feats would apply anyhow.
