Meaning behind the name

The Vizards is a group of former Shinigami who obtained hollow powers.

While the term vizard is spelled in the manga using kanji meaning secret army (kamen no gunzei), it is evident that the English visored (vaizādo). Some fans of translation manga and anime, these are referred to as "caps", an archaic word meaning mask.

This reference was termed because vizards draw out their hollow powers by wearing their hollow mask. With which they can extend their powers with that of a hollow. In order to keep their hollow from controlling them, each of the Vizard have had to face their inner-hollow in a battle within themselves.

Because the Vizard have obtained Hollow abilities and committed the ultimate taboo (after all, even Kisuke Urahara, a captain at the time, was exhiled for trying to merge hollow and shinigami abilities) they are viewed as outlaws, rogues, and freaks by Soul Society.

Vizards Power and Abilities

As Vizards defeated their inner hollows by battling them in their minds, they acquire hollow powers which adds to their shinigami powers thus making them more powerful beyond any shinigami or hollows. The following are their added abilities once they become Vizards.

  • Reiryoku Absorption: Hollow absorb spiritual Power (Reiryoku) from their surroundings, or ingest it from spiritual biengs, while shinigami produce their own natural spiritual Power, some of which is then wasted, or leaked out. By combining these two properties the Vizard can reabsorb the spiritual Power that they themselves give off, making their techniques much more efficient. They can also take it in from other sources, further boosting thier power.
  • Cero: They also gain hollow abilities such as Cero blast which was shown by shinji
  • Power Augmentation: Once their inner hollow have been defeated, vizard's shinigami powers are augmented by that of a hollow thus making them more powerful in combat.
  • Increase in speed
  • Increase in Spirit Power
  • Increase in strength
  • Increase in stamina
