Powers & Abilities
Lisa possesses exceptional skill and power as a lieutenant in the Gotei 13. Captain Shunsui even had great faith in her strength. Her skills in swordsmanship are advanced, and she still remains able to be highly agile. The advantage of hollowfication gives her an incredible boost in power that ho other Soul Reapers can.
- Swordsmanship: All Soul Reapers are trained in sword combat, but Lisa has a level of fluidity that is rarely seen. She appears to be ambidextrous and can switch hands without the lose any power or accuracy.
- Hakuda (白打, hakuda): Hakuda is a form of hand-to-hand combat taught to all Soul Reapers at the academy. Lisa is proficiency in hand-to-hand and combines it with her sword fighting skills. Her speed and agility make her a hard target to strike.
- Flash Step (瞬歩, shunpo): Flash Step is a technique that allows the Soul Reaper to moves at incredible speed that is hard to see.
- Senmaioroshi (千枚卸, senmaioroshi): This is a technique where Lisa uses multiple slashes with her sword shred a target into many pieces in a near instant. She once used this on a Menos Gran Class Hollow, a creature that most Soul Reapers would struggle to even cut.
- Panty-Flash Tornado (パンチラトルネード, panchira torunēdo): With this technique, Lisa plants her hands on the ground and performs a spinning split-kick, like a tornado, to inflict multiple strikes on an enemy. Lisa's power with this skill as more than enough to push back Ichigo while in his hollowfied form.
The process of Hollowfication is a unique ability that was a side effect of one of Aizen's experiments on Soul Reapers. It gives the user the ability to summon a Hollow mask that greatly increases all their attributes. Their spiritual pressure, strength, and speed are all augmented. The training to control hollowfication is not easy, as it requires a person to tame their inner hollow before it can be controlled; then the use of the mask is limited by time.
The shape of the mask is unique to each person. Lisa's mask is in a smooth diamond-shape with a cross-shaped slit in the center. While wearing this mask, only her left eye can be seen from the outside. To counter the time limit they have with the mask, Lisa only uses it in short bursts while fighting.
