Shi-Kai: Gegetsuburi- release command: "Smash Him Into Bits!"
When released, Gegetsuburi changes from its sword shape to something resembling a giant mace. A giant ball with protruding spikes is attached to a sword hilt by a chain. Marechiyo’s shikai abilities are unknown because he was defeated before it could be seen.
Marechiyo is the vice captain of the second division under Soi Fon. He wears the standard shinigami robes as well as a scarf, which possibly indicates his wealth, like Byakuya’s. He also wears several rings and bracelets. He is boorish, perverted, and wants Soi Fon to fall in love with him. His blunt manner generally angers the already touchy Soi Fon, but when given orders he follows them. Their relationship is not a particularly close one, as with some of the other captains and vice captains. He is as big, cool-tempered and burly as Soi Fon is small, quick, and angry. It appears to take a lot to actually get Marechiyo angry, but not much at all to get him to over-react. Marechiyo comes from the high nobility of Seireitei and is often seen lording it over his fellow shinigami.
The only time Marechiyo has been seen in battle is in the brief moment that Soi Fon ordered all remaining vice captains (Marechiyo, Koutetsu Isane, and Sasakibe Choujirou) to recapture Rukia after Soukyoku was destroyed. However, that instance can not be used to efficiently gauge his strength, because Ichigo was underestimated and beat all three of vice captains in less than a minute without using Zangetsu.
Most of Marechiyo’s appearances have been in the color omake chapters, which portray him as rich, condescending, perverted, and irritating to his comrades and captain.
