- Reiryoku: A source of power aligned with the spiritual sensitivity and willpower of the user. Every spiritual being and every Human has a certain amount of Reiryoku.
- Reiatsu: The power released by Bleach characters. This scales to their durability.
- Reishi: Spirit particles, it is the material that makes up souls and spiritual matter. Hueco Mundo, Soul Society, and beings that live in them are entirely made up of Reishi. It is also a source of energy used by Quincy for their weapons, arrows, and abilities like Blue Vene.

Starting off, I would like to say that I really didn't care much for Gerard. However, the more research I do, the more I find myself enjoying him. Usually, I don't enjoy the big and reckless character archetype but I realize now that he is much more than that. Gerard is a really simple character when it comes to power and speed. He scales above the likes of Toshiro, Kenpachi, and Byakuya. He is also a really annoying character to fight as well. So, I hope you enjoy learning about this behemoth.

Gerard is a very powerful force. Early on in his transformations, he was stomping multiple captain class and lieutenant class shinigami.
However, Gerard's best feats come from being able to fight Kenpachi on equal grounds.
This was Kenpachi with his shikai released. Just base Kenpachi before he was powered up from his fight with Unohana was already above the Vasto Lorde that faced Ulquiorra Schiffer. He even got stronger at the end of the novel.
This is very impressive because Vasto Lorde's opponent performed feats such as this.
This attack has the power to destroy all of Las Noches in size. This is impressive because Las Noches is at least a Large Island in size based on Nel's statement.
The Vasto Lorde was so strong that it grabbed the same attack that did this and crushed it with his bare hands.
This is already in the country level tier (most likely higher since the Vasto Lorde was at half power). However, Kenny gets much stronger.
For example, he got stronger each time he died and Unohana killed him multiple times which continued to increase his power.
Each time he died he got stronger and just his base was country-level in power. With all of these power-ups, Kenny should be in the large country tier in base. After this Zaraki unlocks his shikai and with its power boost, Kenny would already be in the Continental tier at the lowest.
What's even more impressive is that Gerard was not only facing him on equal grounds but even overpowering him.
After being cut in half by Kenpachi in Bankai Gerard grows even more powerful thanks to his power. He gets another power boost after this one when he comes back from Toshiro's bankai once again. With all of these power boosts Gerard should easily be in the Continental range.
Moving on, Gerard might not seem like a speed-based character but you would be very shocked how wrong that statement is. Even characters who absolutely irrelevant to him in speed are already performing MHS to relativistic feats.
And then, utilizing a transfer technique which employed the use of shadows characteristic of the “Wandenreich” and derived from the 'equipment’ Mayuri had prepared, she was able to throw an extra large bolt of lightning at point-blank range towards her targets
The thunderstorm which even surpasses nature’s lightning, was mostly absorbed into the ground through the large tree, meanwhile the flank attack generated by the thunderstorm was repelled in the same fashion as before by the big sword in the possession of the man with the black jacket.
We know Candice is able to react to Ginjo’s attacks because of this
Candice narrowly leapt backwards as the place she had been was sheared by the blade of the large sword, which glinted silver.
An electric chill ran down Candice’s spine.
As she twisted her body and leapt to the side, the attack unleashed by the sword ripped through the reishi in the air and grazed her. The slashing attack plunged through the smoke that came from the gigantic, lightningsinged tree, and eventually pierced the side of a distant hill and blew part of the slope away.
Now, Electrocution > any lightning in nature, and base Ginjo reacted to it and deflected it at point-blank range.
Base on this study, lightning can go up to 1400000 m/s which is mach 4114, and Electrocution is much faster than that. And that's just base Ginjo btw, he also has Shikai and Bankai on top of this (and FB Bankai Ichigo was superior to him).

This makes sense already with characters like Ulquiorra being in that same ballpark in the speed category thanks to his scaling.
Starting off, we have Ichigo's infamousMach 500dodging feat, where he dodged aMach 500 sword from a few meters away while surprised.By using a time calculator, Ichigo would have 1.066355E-5 seconds(Near a microsecond) in terms of reaction speed and drawn out it's, .00001066355andusing this, Bankai Ichigo's Reaction speed would be in the Sub-Relative+ section. (I used this calculator)(5-10% Lightspeed).Credit: MantraXSP
Knowing that Ichigo in reality did that while weakened and Ulq blitzed him in just first release form is very impressive. Even if you argue a bankai does not multiply your stats a resurrection definitely does.I know this because Ichigo was giving Ulq trouble in his hollowfication while Ulq was in his base form.
However, after transforming he absolutely crushes him.
Now, that I have established that even Bleach mid-tiers are in the MHS to Relatavstic of speed I can provide you with two FTL feats that are consistent.
First, we have a feat performed by a member of the Zero Division.
In this feat we see him move before his shadow which is very easily an FTL feat. Now, the question is this consistent? Well, the answer is yes. You see this member of the Royal Guard is either a high top tier in the verse or a low god tier in the verse. This is consistent because everyone involved here are easily high tiers in the verse.
The second feat is one performed by Kenpachi himself (the person Gerard in weaker forms was keeping up with).
“At that instant to an observer at that point, it would appear as if they're under the illusion that the surrounding environment's time stopped. You may notice that Hikone, who should have been crossing swords in the distance with Kenpachi, was standing right behind Aura. What kind of movement did Hikone use? It can't just be speed. While arriving from that elevation at speed within an instant, Hikone was landing at that spot with raising a single piece of dust. Yet it is a spectacle that even the force of gravity and inertia are distorted by his reiatsu and technique, that most people aren't even able to react immediately in the face of that seemingly beautiful movement. Only one person was capable of reacting. There was no trace of hesitation, even in the middle of crossing blades with Kenpachi, only Hisagi understood that Hikone would go to attack Aura immediately, in order to protect Aura's rear, he stood in Hikone's way.”
“In the world of special relativity, time appears to stop when an object moves at light speeds. The reason it words it as “under the illusion” is because in Hikone’s reference frame (or the observer at that point) it would appear as time is stopped, but to everyone in the inertial rest frame time still proceeds; hence, it being an illusion. It’s even stated that Hikone’s movement distorts inertia, which would imply that Newtonian physics cannot be used to describe Hikone’s motion.”
Credit to @ovy7 for this as well.
This is even crazier when you realize Kenny was fighting Hikone in base previously. That puts Kenny at FTL in base. With his shikai Kenpachi is easily FTL as well. This same Kenpachi was beaten by Gerard.
With all of this in mind, Gerard is easily FTL.

Here is where things start to get crazy. Gerard's power is insane.
Have you ever heard the saying bigger is better? Well, this is that saying personified. This power allows Gerard to pretty much come back from basically anything bigger and stronger. This ability is so much more insane than you can imagine. But, I don't need to tell you that I will let the feats speak for themselves.
Gerard regenerates his lost arm stronger than before. He also has shown the power to regenerate from being cut in half (again bigger and stronger). Finally, the most insane thing his power has shown is its ability to bring him back from being frozen (the ice was absolute zero by the way) and being massacred by Byakuya's strongest attack.

Gerard is not only physically crazy strong but he also has some very deadly tools at his disposal. The first and most powerful of his tools is his blade "Hoffnung". This is a giant blade that increases Gerard's range and is durable enough to trade blows with Kenpachi Zaraki's sword Nozarashi. It's much more than a simple sword.
It transfers the damage that the blade receives to the person that damaged it. Even a little scratch caused a huge wound to Kenpachi Zaraki. Taking the blade's size into consideration Gerard can use it as a defensive and offensive tool. Speaking of defensive Gerard also has a huge shield which he can use for offense and defense. The final weapon Gerard has access to is his bow "Heilig Bogen".
Like all Quincy weapons this bow fires arrows made out of Gerard's reiastu.

Overall, Gerard is a very dangerous opponent. He is like Bleach's Doomsday. The more you fight him the stronger he gets. Adding on, his surprisingly good weaponry I believe he is a force to be reckoned with!
