» Zanpakuto Name:
Kuukyoken No Ha, goes by "Benkei."» Gender:
Only Kakine.» Body Type:
Benkei's body is actually rather small and skinny, albeit not quite as slender as Kakine. Her height and overall body shape is akin to that of a senior school girl, albeit sporting much wider hips than what is typical of a normal petite woman. She is said to only stand at around five foot two, a rather small height for someone whom has such a big personality. Although she is skinny in her own right, Benkei is not unhealthy by any measure of the word, rather she appears to be quite fit and still having a lot of good areas of muscle toning her body. If one were to see her body underneath her outfit, they would see rather slender and toned mucles that are only possible from years upon years of training. The same could be said about her legs, seemingly thicker that the rest of her body which accompany her thigh highs rather well. Overall she has many mature aspects whilst still holding the height and overall posture of a young woman.» Facial Features, Hair and Eyes:
Benkei's face has shown to be rather small and round in comparison to Kakine, whom has a defined jawline and rather long face overall. Atop of her face are very few markings or irregularities, albeit above her right eye is a small brand with the Japanese symbols "作ります", meaning create. This is in reference to her powers as a Zanpakuto. Her eyes are a glowing pink colour, the most obvious fact about her face being how large her eyes are atop of that. When it comes to her hair, Benkei has let it grow out to the point of touching the back of her knees, while holding an intense pitch black mixed in with strands of white scattered all throughout. For her fringe, Benkei has a red dyed portion over the top of her left eye while the right side is shaded by a blue dye. These clashing colours instantly gives Benkei a very "punk" vibe. » Accessories:
Without diving too deep into her outfit, Benkei has a ton of different accessories spread throughout her body, most being small bracelets and rings. On her right arm is a black and white bracelet that is cut up into wooden slices, on each slice reading a different Japanese word. In total there are six slices, reading in order: Create, Pure, Eternal, Silence, Temperance and Life. All of these are in reference to two things: both the power Benkei allows and the mentality and progression of Kakine with his "angelic" state. Aside from this bracelet, Benkei also has multiple rings on her left hand. Some are simple silver rings whilst the one on her middle finger reading a simple "K", seemingly created by her in reference to her proper name, Kuukyoken. At her neck appears to be a necklace made out of diamonds: their colours, though, turned pitch black. This is simply to keep up with Benkei's aesthetics. » Tattoos/Piercings/Irregularities:
Given her overall appearance thus far, it is safe to say Benkei would have a bunch of different piercings and a few tattoos. Her most obvious piercings are the three ones at the side of her mouth, silver studs that appear on the outer lip on the left side. There is also a nose rings on the right side, a small ring of metal appearing at that location. Underneath her outfit, Benkei also has a single nipple piercing on her left side, albeit she does not get to show this off much. Her tattoos are less common or visible however, mostly up her left side being a Japanese styled dragon, running up from her left hip up to under her armpit. The tattoos is coloured in beautiful tones, a strand of red and yellow mixed in to create fire at the armpit-area of the tattoo. This is her only tattoo, and even then she barely gets to show it due to it's location.» Normal Attire:
Her normal attire is actually rather thematically in line with Kakine himself. Just as Kakine has a sort of "student" type uniform, Benkei takes on the same idea except with a more girly oriented look. Atop of her head is a set of "horns" which are used like a hair pin, clipping into her hair. The shirt is white in main colour whilst black and white rings coil around the sleeves, a vague button up collar resting to create a small v-neck without exposing her chest too much. On one arm she has a small arm warmer, coloured black with pink rings spread out across it. Her skirt is rather short, stopping quite high up her thighs as a studded belt is wrapped around the top, seemingly holding it up. On her legs she sports torn up stockings, the one on the right being pink in colour while the left is blue, multiple holes and rips present throughout both of them. At her feet, she simply wears normal white school shoes. » Reiatsu Colour:
A mix of pink and blue.» Abstract & Creative:
Benkei is somewhat different to Kakine in terms of her creative side, as she is much more abstract and unique in the approach she takes towards life and every situation. Her creativity is much more progressive in appearance, sporting many different appearance based proof of that. Although her creativity is most commonly found when advising Kakine when utilizing her zanpakuto power. In many instances, she will often give ideas and sometimes even create items and concepts on their own will purely because it came to her as an idea mid fight. As someone who's main power is creation, Benkei tries to defy the whole "god complex" that could easily be associated with such a power, rather using her "express herself creativity" approach in it's place. This also means she takes quite a large interest in art and is commonly found drawing, writing and painting in her spare time.» Prideful:
This is somewhat similar to Kakine's prideful nature, yet Benkei focuses mostly on personal pride over that of a family or friends. She looks at pride in an interesting way: That it is a good force until it allows you to become blind and stubborn to the point of ignorance. For this reason, she will often maintain personal pride by attempt to steer Kakine in a direction that is much less prideful - helping him keep his mind clear and objective about situations. This is particularly common when it comes to family, as a lot of the time Kakine would follow his family into anything, yet with Benkei's guidance he gets to keep an outsiders approach. Someone who can access the situation with no bias. Kakine personally loves that about her, even if he is not expressing it at the moment it occurs. Benkei is someone who can keep her own pride from blinding her, yet maintaining and helping Kakine manage his own.» Upbeat:
One of the most obvious things when meeting Benkei is her overall upbeat and down to Earth style of conversation and action. She is often found never with a frown on her face and will keep situations as lively and happy as possible, trying hard to not only remove negativity from Kakine himself, but from the entire situation. This somewhat clashes with Kakine's rather mellow look on the world and can often be annoyed by how excited and upbeat Benkei proves to be. Although he ultimately knows she is this way for his own benefit, he can't help but get annoyed every now and then. The only situation in which her personality seems to "flip" is when shikai or bankai is activated. This is due to her starting to take a fight seriously, and the usage of bankai, shikai and beyond is serious business to her. When this happens, her upbeat attitude seems to fade and a cold, serious persona seems to overtake her. A rather scary sight, even to the likes of Kakine. » Strong Willed:
Despite her upbeat and rather relaxing overall attitude, she has shown to have an ironclad will that seems almost unbreakable. This strong will somewhat influences Kakine in it's own right, using it to either strengthen him through words or fight on his behalf when he cannot. The strong will allows her overcome incredible mental assaults and things of the like, trying to break her mentality almost seems pointless most of the time. Powering through attacks by will alone is also shown when fighting against Kakine during their training sessions, but even against real opponents. This is an important aspect for her and Kakine too, seeing as she can somewhat use this strong will to influence Kakine's own, allowing him to keep pushing through despite the intensity and mental drain of the situation at hand.» Anxiety:
Despite her upbeat and strong will, there is an underlying sense of anxiety that runs throughout her mind. She can withstand many different mental assaults, yet even her own mind works against her a lot of the time. It isn't so much anxiety for her own life, but Kakine's, having to watch him live life through a 3rd person's lens, her only control over it being her words. Even though she had incredible sway, she worries a lot of Kakine and the Yuudeshi as a whole. While Kakine has an overall "We can win" attitude, Benkei somewhat has a "But what will we lose along the way?" thought. It's an interesting swap in character for the two, as in almost every other aspect, Benkei is the most upbeat and happy. That was always her role in stabilizing Kakine and his thoughts. Being the anchor that draws him back to Earth. Benkei may not know it herself, but Kakine is the anchor that keeps her grounded, too. The two bounce and live off each other really well.» Optimism:
In contrast to Kakine's pessimistic attitude, Benkei is quite the optimist. Although her anxiety somewhat hinders her in worrying about Kakine and the Yuudeshi, her overall outlook on life falls into that of postivity. Even though she may feel down, stressed or anxiety ridden, she will often never show this and attempt to keep her upbeat and optimistic attitude at her forefront, looking for the bright side in all situations. Even if she truly doesn't believe what she says, Benkei will convince those around her and herself that the opposite of her thoughts is true. She knows how important optimism in a world of sadness and destruction is, so she continues using this idea to keep giving Kakine and others hope. Even if Kakine dismisses it at first, Benkei will continue and push that optimism onto him until he finally agrees or at least understands. This also makes her quite compassionate in the process, not only showing passion for her adoptive family in the Yuudeshi, but for all life on Earth. She has hope that when she fights, she can help Kakine spare their lives, pushing him to do the right thing yet again.» Happy Drunk:
Benkei is a woman who loves her liquor, and to say that she's a "happy drunk" is probably a bit of an understatement. Often times, Benkei will be found not only drinking various different alcohols, but rarely ever getting sick from the amount she drinks. This basically doubles all of her previous positive traits when she does however, making her not only extremely obnoxious in some aspects, but can actually influence Kakine more. This is typically because all limits in her mind are lifted and she will say absolutely anything she wants, even if to the detriment of Kakine accidentally. When meeting a new person while drunk, she will often be overjoyed and somewhat creepily attached to them, hugging and dragging them down to her level of excitement until they either punch her away or ignore her entirely. Even if that were to happen, she is likely to come crawling back if she likes them enough.
Benkei's inner world is quite simple in concept and resembles that of a classroom that you could find anywhere in Karakura, more specifically a Karakura high school classroom. With the normal panned windows on one side and a chalkboard at the head of the room, Benkei is usually stationed at the chalkboard where the teacher would stand. Along with that, Kakine is usually found in a desk at the back of the classroom, filler people actually being contained at the other desks to add effect to the classroom itself. Most of the time these filler people only speak to each other, Kakine and Benkei are the main focus of attention when they speak though, that is, when there are filler people around. Benkei has been known to disallow fillers to interfere with her conversations with Kakine, only due to praying eyes seeming to bother her quite a lot. However there is a larger area outside of this classroom, if one were to break out through a window or leave the building, there would be a scenery of nothing but forest and trees, animals rummaging through it without a single essence of human corruption taking over the place. This is what Kakine considers to be a tropical paradise, what Earth truly looked like before humans came along and started chopping down trees and building massive constructions which aren't even needed. He viewed it as a bliss.
On top of this, beyond what is shown as the forestation, the once completely frozen lake is a glistening crystal-esque lake. The lake that previously represented the inner hollow's control over him is now purged and pure, representing the unlock of his angelic forces. If one were to step into or get near the lake, they would find that the water is made up of pure Aetherium, the energy that is active during his Angelic state.» Sealed Zanpakuto Appearance:
Kakine's Zanpakutō takes the shape of a simple blade when in a unreleased form, The blade itself is around 3/4th's of a yard long and is about two centimeters in width. The blade is quite simple and takes the form of any normal Katana you would find in the world of the living. Kakine does not know why Benkei takes this form in her sealed state, but it typically doesn't matter as he rarely relies on the sword for combat. The blade itself has a slightly worn edge, however there is a white cloth hanging off of the hilt which is used to wrap around anything Kakine wished, mainly being able to wrap around his arm or be twirling in the air. It must be noted, however, his Zanpakutō is normally not visible on his body - Kakine is shown to summon it in a similar way to his power by 'creating' it before him. » Sealed Zanpakuto Abilities:
Throughout his years, Kakine has found himself capable of accessing majority of his main power within his sealed state. His Shikai and Bankai are major enhancements upon what he can already do, but compared to most sealed states, he gets quite a bit of power that is incredibly strong. These are listed below.» The Art of Life: Creation & Construction:
This is the primary power which Kakine's entire being is based off, all of his abilities related to this in one way or another. As one might guess from the name, the power entails "creation" as it's main purpose, simplistic in essence, but more complicated the further it is explained. The way this power works is by primarily changing different forms of his own energy into existence as if from nothing. By converting his own pool of energy, portions of his reiatsu can become "changeable", molding them into constructs on a physical level. The most interesting part about this construction based ability is that he once it is created, the object itself is pure. This means that is is not a creation made out of reiatsu and could be dispelled by negation based abilities, but the object in question acts as if it had always existed in the first place with no spiritual intervention.
Although he can internally rely on his own energy pool to bring forward constructs, this is actually not his go to answer for creation. Kakine is capable of taking different types of energy sources, be it Iramasha, Demon, Shinigami or Sugiura, and molding them into constructs by sort of 'stealing' left over energy that may be left over from specific areas. A good example of this would be Kakine drawing spiritual energy from a powerful Iramasha Aether Stone, so power that is forces itself to leak Aether into the world around it. This means that he cannot directly tap into a person's reiatsu and steal their reiatsu per say, but he can clean up the scraps and left overs, using them to convert into his personal pool of reiatsu, and bring them into reality. In his own unique way, this makes Kakine a very powerful energy user that cannot be underestimated in anyway.
There are two sides to this power in terms of how it works. On one hand, you have the "creation" based side. Creation focuses on actually bringing the concept into reality, the idea of converting the reiatsu into the physical energy and having it appear. Yet the second side is where the intricacies of the power get involved, and require an intense amount of processing and knowledge that is typically processed by his cyber brain. The "construction" side typically deals with the blue prints and ideas that make the creation itself stable. So in theory he could bring simple concepts into reality by converting his reiatsu, but without the construction portion? Kakine is useless in making both intricate creations. Even throughout his thorough years of training and intense usage, it can sometimes even prove to be difficult to construct concepts due to the "mental blueprints" that the construction aspects deal with. As he quickly discovered with the Beetles, especially the humanoids, the 'construction' side is probably the most important - as if you don't have the intricate understandings and blue prints present, there can be many defects or straight up failures. Kakine is very seasoned and practiced in this though, thus rarely making it a problem for him.
Although those are the two main sides, there is a portion in which the "middle ground" exists. This middle zone encompasses the personal usage and control over his own and outside energy sources, capable of converting and controlling them into the fuel needed to create in the first place. If Kakine were to be hooked up to something that could provide him a seemingly endless stream of energy, he could quite literally nearly become a God in terms of his creation. With such an unlimited source of energy to convert, he could quite literally at that point create different universes on beyond cosmic scale. Although this is all theory at this point, this is simply to describe the scale his power allows.
In sealed state, it's important to mention the scale of this. Surprisingly, he has quite a bit of freedom when in his sealed state - yet not exactly a pinnacle of his power, saving that for his other states. He can create an amazing amount of different things, mostly dealing with physical area during sealed. The sealed state usually allows him to only create a single thing at a time, but he can actually do it in quick succession as well, so fast that it may seem like he's creating multiple at the same time. This has been shown while repairing specifically, such as repairing portions of a broken road as soon as it's torn up. Although for his sealed state, there doesn't seem to be a 'size' limit in which he can create something. Although certain constructions require more energy that might not be possible during his sealed state, meaning that he is not limitless for creation in sealed.
Though it must be noted that this power doesn't have to follow the rules of nature. This means that, if he wishes, Kakine can actually turn concepts on their head and mix and match with them. He can manipulate even the most minute details with usage of his processing ability, such as swapping out certain atoms of creating nigh imprenedrable sheets of steel but analyzing and seeing how different molecules interact and work together. This actually means that he can literally create concepts that "do not yet exist in this world". Not concept that have not been discovered, no, but simply have not existed until Kakine himself had created it. It's a rather powerful concept to think about, but his energy pool is typically hit the more complex in design.
There are some major limitations to this power though. Although he can theoretically create anything, when dealing with his zanpakuto limitations, he cannot actually physically implant "powers" into an already living being. This rule seems to be slightly broken when creating the Beetles, but they were created alongside their being, not applying it to a new person. For sealed, Shikai and Bankai, this means that he can't simply make himself immune to fire or something of the like. Applying new and different powers to himself or others from his base forms is almost unheard of, unless the being itself was born from Kakine.» The Art of Defiance: True Creation
One of the more unique powers is Kakine's addition to his already powerful ability to create virtually anything is his capability to swap out certain elements in his environment with a source called "Construction Spheres". The construction spheres are a unique type of energy pool that lives within Kakine's body at all times, too microscopic to see and undetectable by conventional methods. The only way for one to know they even exist is when Kakine applies them to the world around him. The construction spheres themselves allow swapping out of certain elements of an object without breaking it's physical make up. This is to say that Kakine is capable of swapping atoms and chemical make up within an object by mimicking the physical attributes which allow it to hold it's form - yet swap concepts out at a mere whim.
This works in a similar fashion to his original creation based ability where the concept has to be thought of and applied after obtaining an understanding of how. The creation spheres work in an exactly similar fashion, however instead of using his personal energy pool or from the world around him, draws upon the slow regenerative spheres. To imagine this ability, and as an example, imagine a brick wall constructed by Kakine through his normal construction. In all essence it may look, act and be as durable as a brick wall. But, by adding in the concept of "fire" with the construction spheres, the wall might find itself covered entirely in an inferno of flames that tears through anyone who gets close. This isn't limited to just fire though, Kakine is capable of using these construction spheres to quite literally alter the "normal" make up. In a way, this is both a mix of creation based skill and physics breaking.
Although this does not end at simply he creations - by interacting with the world around him, Kakine is able to substitute the atoms of items within his immediate vicinity with his own construction spheres. For this to take place, Kakine must first allow his own spiritual energy to come into contact with the object in question - giving a path for his construction sphere to replace said object. This can happen within an instant, however usually only lasts around 2 posts before the spheres fizzle out and fade, returning the device to normal. Pushing them into the object or idea he is creating, he can generate other wordily effect from it. As there is no specific amount of energies that runs through the Construction Spheres, Kakine can choose which type of effect he wants to put into an object by using his cyber brain. Overheat by catching fire, he can add the component. Overload with electricity, suddenly add the concept of incredible weight to an item? This is also possible. The only important part to note is that, when directly influencing devices and items specific to individuals, he can't use an affect that simply destroys it within a single instant. The effects in the weapons might take a post to activate, and by that time might have been counteracted somehow.
However, it also must be noted that the energy is not endless. By using too much construction spherical energy within his body, it can make him pass out or come to effects such as head aches. Normally, this isn't relied on heavily as it can quickly ware him out, but if he wants to do such things as rid opponents of objects by willing their weapons to overheat, or jam, he is able to do so. » Psychometry:
This takes upon the idea of "re-imagining the past" in a sense. This is a rather unique idea that his power allows him to do, especially useful during not only investigations, but understanding a persons power perhaps. On a non-physical level, Kakine is capable of reconstructing a sort of "scene" that happened within the past few weeks in a single location. This sort of works like a hologram of reconstructing the past in a sense, cleaning up the "residue" and reconstructing based on analysis of the event. This actually appears into the physical reality through his power. Although this isn't perfect, the power itself simply draws conclusions based on the environment. This also gives him intense migraines depending on the scale, the longer it is reconstructed like a hologram, the worse the head ache.» Release Phrase:
Atarashī genjitsu o sōzō suru, Kuukyoken ("Create a new reality, Kuukyoken.")» Appearance:
When entering Shikai state, Kakine himself does not change at all. Upon entering Shikai, Kakine's blade becomes a mass of nothing, eventually taking the form of a solidified Benkei. Benkei can speak, interact, and even create things like Kakine himself. Benkei is not only linked to Kakine in physical form, but she cannot diverge or travel elsewhere while this is active. While mostly designing simple concepts, Benkei can fight alongside Kakine by assisting him in creations, but is incapable of providing physical support outside of her own powers. Thusly, she cannot be harmed by conventional means, taking an incorporeal form. » Incredible Energy Reserves:
Due to most of his power being based around the usage and application of his surrounding and internal energy, Kakine obtains a rather incredible boost to his already vast reserves of energy. This means he can not only apply his power in new and exciting ways, but will actually let him create more as his internal pool of energy just exploded into overdrive. With this increase in energy, Kakine gets to focus a lot more on his internal energy becoming constructs, as his vast amounts seem to be near bottomless. Albeit not true, for the opponent this may be what it seems like, he can continuously construct items over and over, proving to be an incredibly difficult natural trait for his enemies. By drawing upon surrounding energies atop of his internal energies, Kakine can cause devastating assaults and even cause incredible damage to people whom would otherwise be considered extremely durable - albeit this is dependent upon the construct itself.» Immeasurable Speed:
One of Kakine's most useful traits is his ability to move every facet of his body at blindingly fast speeds. He can travel large distances in the blink of an eye, which is a massive asset in battle, but Kakine's true power comes into applying this to physical attacks. Blindingly fast assaults that might be invisible to the naked eye, and even flexing his mental muscle by applying the said speed to his creation abilities. As this is similar in fashion to training a muscle, his powers gain a boost from his speed in Shikai as well. This means that Kakine's creation happens within an instant, and if someone blinked at the wrong time, may find something now exists out of thin air. The main problem with this is that while moving at such fast speeds, not even his cybernetic brain can process all the information. Unless a battle plan is laid out in advance, when moving at maximum speeds the input becomes too much -- and he will usually rely on blind faith in his abilities and body movements. » Deconstruction:
Benkei's true purpose becomes obvious the moment Shikai is activated. Benkei herself can take almost any form she wishes, and at the will of Kakine, can become a incorporeal ball of energy that floats in mid air. By slamming Benkei's energetic form into an object, person or environment, Kakine can then begin to rapidly "deconstruct" whatever she touches. By literally infecting the object in question, Benkei begins to read their inner workings and can rip apart molecule by molecule. Due to her form as being incorporeal, Benkei can head on slam into a variety of energy and physical assaults, and begin to deconstruct before they even get close to making contact with Kakine. It must be noted that this acts similar to an "infection", and similar precautions taken to remove an infection can be applied. If she is forced out of an object before it is fully deconstructed, the portion that was removed cannot return - but it expel and disorientate Benkei for a two post period. Similarly, she *can* attempt to do this to humanoids, but she often finds it difficult to deconstruct them for multiple reason. For one, the natural spiritual energy within a body is said to be enough to force her out. Secondly, if she truly wanted to remain and decompose a body, it could only be done to small portions. She also has mental barriers stopping her from causing physical harm in such a manner, considering it cheap and disgusting. People of even low tiers would find it easy to remove her from this method of attack, which is why she sticks to objects, surroundings and attacks. » Amplified Creation:
Due to his ascension into Shikai state, he is now capable of producing up to five times the amount of Construction Spheres (See "True Creation and Construction") than he could in base state, meaning he can now use his internal source of unique construction to a much more wild extent. On top of this, he is now capable of constructing entire armies to his will, armies of people who are capable swordsmen, who all utilise their own unique styles. This is helpful in raids and such, but it also must be known armies can also be summoned in base state, but in Shikai it is amplified to the point where each soldier is three times as durable, strong and fast as before. Although an army is possible, it's a weird creation process because it wouldn't necessarily be considered "individual creation", rather a series of beings interconnected to Kakine's mind. While creating unique beings is possible, he can create those semi-conscious beings in much larger numbers, and with mush less intricacy requirements. » Falsified Telekinesis:
As one might guess from the name, the "telekinesis" that Kakine is granted through his shikai is rather different to the actual thing. When Kakine is in the midst of battle, his own energy output is continuously tracked. Not only does his cybernetic brain aid him in tracking his spiritual and kinetic energies, but it tells him exactly the output available, and where it is being directed. This power works by directly controlling his own energy output, and when used, he can alter the direction and speed of an item which he has transferred kinetic or spiritual energy into. This means he can both lift, turn and objects with his very mind the moment he passes a second of energy into it. This is used in powerful ways, but as an example, Kakine could stamp his foot into the earth and tear chunks of earth to block attacks, or send flying across a battlefield by applying a his kinetic energy into a precision point. The important thing to note about this ability: he can ONLY apply this telekinesis to his own movements. It must be HIS energy transferring into an object or environment. This is used powerfully when punching a wall for example, not only could he split it open from his kinetic force alone, but he could send the bricks into multiple locations. He can control the individual small details and send them in multiple locations, or even stop objects mid air once met with his own energy.
As he can directly control the kinetic energy being applied to an object, amplifying it or altering it's direction, he can turn things like a rock into an unstoppable force. Kicking a rock, or hitting an item with spiritual energy, she could send it launching in a direction at speeds beyond the eye could follow. If the item is said to travel for long enough, it could even reach a point of burning up. The maximum power of this is said to be unknown, and the maximum power is diminished the larger the object, meaning the kinetic energy she applies is spread over a wider object. If Kakine were to apply massive personal energy to an assault, and gave an item an already powerful kinetic attack a trajectory, it would not lose it's power or force by changing directions.» Bankai Release Phrase:
"Bankai, Kuukyoken No Ha."» Appearance: » Overwhelming Reiatsu:
As is always the form when a bankai is activated, Kakine gains an overwhelming spiritual pressure once more. Though his shikai allowed an explosive and deep pool of energy, the moment Kakine steps into his bankai, the limits of his power seem to change completely. Not only is he almost entirely reliant on his giant energy pool for creation, but it also expands to a point where simply being in his presence would crush beings under it's pressure. This also means that he can create objects to far great size and efficiency than before, as he now has a ridiculously large pool of reiatsu to pull from. » Incredible Speed and Agility:
As mentioned, overall movement speed and attack speed are incredibly powerful in Kakine's fighting style. While one might have found it impossible to follow before, his bankai raises this to a level of complete absurdity. The moment his bankai is activated, Kakine is said to not only travel at mach level speeds over long distance travel, but his physical attacks are near instantaneous. Only those with the highest of deduction can track these movements, and when he reaches his peak, Kakine's attacks are also enhanced on a personal level. The most amazing thing about Kakine's speed isn't how fast he is compared to everyone else, it's how fast he can make each individual cell in his body move at a rate beyond normal human perception. This means that he can gain a temporary moment of "molecular oscillation". By "Speeding up" individual, tiny movements on his body, he can create attacks which can phase him directly through an attack, or "slip" through as if incorporeal. This is typically only done in small bursts, and when applied to portions of his body, can even intercept stabs, punches and other bullets to pass straight through him for a brief period. This, however, does not make him invulnerable -- as he would need to maintain his peek for a long period of time to pull off. » Pinnacle of Creation and Construction:
In Bankai, Kakine's creation reaches it's peak. Not only does he receive far less drawbacks upon taxing his own energy pool, but it brings it to a point of time very nearly being irrelevant. This means that his creation and brain processes work so fast that every creation, be it organism or object, is very near instantaneous. From the moment his cybernetic brain processes the correct information, up until the point where it is in existence, it is faster than one can even blink. This isn't to say he can't be caught by surprise, but the way his cybernetic brain enhances his movements during his bankai state is so incredibly warped that it becomes his biggest asset. Creation at a level where his reflexes are impeccable is dangerous, for everyone in the surrounding area.
In Bankai, no creation is off limits. For all intents and purposes, nothing is too large, complex or overwhelming, and should he posses the proper blueprints and ideas within his mind, it is quite possible for him to forge entirely unheard of concepts in the process. His True Creation earns itself an overwhelming enhancement as well, as not only can he physically create items of intense power, but he can take Benkei's power and infect his environment with it. This means that he can control benkei like before, but now can rip apart very structures molecules and replace it with his construction spheres on a MASSIVE scale. The construction spheres can then alter his environment, and even turn portions of the ground into an inferno in the blink of an eye, or even remove the concept of steel being "tough", and infect said object to make it floppy. This is only possible for the duration that benkei infects it though, and as she cannot warp the personal reality of living beings very well, she can be expelled in a similar manner. The maximum range for this skill is said to be two kilometers in every direction, making large scale destruction even more likely. » Telekinetic Enhancement:
Although Kakine's bankai is mostly a thing of creation enhancement, his telekinetic enhancement is something that ties in perfectly with his new speed possibilities. Just as his personal level of speed is increased, so is the cognitive process of altering his personal energies. This means that Kakine's control over his personal energy is amplified to a point of being near instant and much more subtle, even so much as taking a step could cause Kakine's telekinetic energy control to kick in. By placing a soft foot onto the ground, he could amplify and lift that object that is filled with kinetic energy before you could even blink an eye. This doesn't increase the speed in which items are shot outwards or how much damage it will do, but instead it controls the initial reaction speed to kinetic and spiritual energy manipulation.
Not only this, but his personal level of control over his own kinetic energy allows him to compact and contract items into a solid or liquidated form, but controlling the very kinetic energy that is within the item. This means that if his kinetic energy were to be placed into water, he could not only control the way in which that water was directed, but could temporarily solidify it by controlling it's kinetic energy, essentially removing all kinetic energy in the process. As he can control his own energy outputs, not only can he control how much kinetic energy is applied to a said attack or power, but he can reduce it to zero as well.
