Despite Shunsui's thoughts on the matter, the timing of their attacks would not be in unison. While it was true the Arrancar took more damage than he thought would be coming his way, there was enough time between being forced back some feet, which outside of general damage and the occasional cut would've been the result of Shunsui's Bushogama due to the shock absorbing nature of his Hierro, and Byakuya's Bankai-empowered attack. As such, the now-bloodied Verathius was able to return to his feet and prepare for the continued onslaught from his opponents. Though his Hierro was mighty, it was true that taking a direct hit from nearly as strong as himself while in Bankai would not end favorably to say the least; along with this, the other wounds Verathius had already sustained from Byakuya and Shunsui's other previous attacks were quickly adding up to make a disadvantageous situation more troublesome by the minute. Unfortunately for Verathius, having such a powerful Hierro meant upon Arrancar-ization he had given up any possibility of regeneration....except in one specific instance.
Without uttering a release phrase of any kind a sudden monstrous burst of energy even in excess of Byakuya's Bankai burst out from Verathius's body, sending forth both blades of wind which could eviscerate steel and immense heat thousands of degrees higher than necessary to liquidate the ground beneath their feet. The roar and sheer pressure of this release acted as an armor against Byakuya's attack which would be forced back by it's bursting energy, as if he was trying to pierce a miniature sun in the center of a tornado. The destructive transformation into Ressureccion was one of an Arrancar's not often discussed abilities as people tend to focus on the new form itself, not the process bringing it out. Still, it could only act as a temporary measure meant to deal with a single instance of action.
There was still one more trait of releasing into Ressureccion many often forget; while the energy Verathius already used couldn't be replaced, the injuries across his body were now gone and replaced with thin white scars. Along with this, white Hollow bones covered his arms and legs with a crown made of the material sitting atop his head, Verathius's Ressureccion a king's coronation. "I extend to you the same offer...remove yourself from my path, and both of you may live to see tomorrow. Probably."
Being just as abrupt as his release, Verathius wasted no time in firing off two Cero simultaneously; except these were no simple blasts of energy. Within each Cero an incredible amount of white-hot fire had been imbued, turning them into burning attacks capable of reducing cities to ash. Verathius's skill with Cero easily matched Byakuya's skill with Kido, while exceeding Shunsui's; for this reason, the added power from being in Ressureccion would make blocking or dodging his latest assault incredibly difficult even for fighters such as these Shinigami.
If either one of them believed Verathius would be done already, they'd be sorely mistaken. The two Cero were merely a shot across the bow, a test of his own newfound strength. Around his body more energy gathered, this time forming a large ring of fire which could act as a defensive measure to block or vaporize potential follow ups from Shunsui or Byakuya. As quickly as it'd formed however, the ring quickly expanded in every direction and exponentially grew in size as it rolled across the land like a tidal wave of energy and fire. This ring, also known as Hell Halo
, would in all likelihood force his foes to dodge up or backward as striking against it would merely cause more of Verathius's energy to repair the flame creation of any cracks. Regardless of which way they dodged however, the circle of flame would suddenly explode into a monstrous inferno on the scale of nuclear blasts, washing over Soul Society for five miles in every direction leaving naught but black ash in it's wake. This explosion of fire capable of turning entire lakes into dried up holes in the ground would expand until it formed a massive pillar of flame multiple miles tall. Had Verathius not had resistance to and control over fire, even his Ressureccion-enhanced Tribal Hierro would struggle to defend from this colossal attack.
Even as the immense flames of his Hell Halo
began receding, Verathius was already preparing for the next stage in this battle as marble-sized spheres of energy would form around his torso, four in total. Each possessed all the power of a Gran Rey Cero while retaining the burning hot attributes of his Ressureccion fire, all condensed into tiny spheres. Whether his foes attacked or used all their energy to save themselves from his previous actions didn't matter as this newest line of defense ensured Verathius would not find himself vulnerable to Shunsui and Byakuya's machinations.
