Powers and Stats
Tier: 7-C, likely higher in Bankai | At least 7-B, likely 7-A
Name: Sajin Komamura
Age: Unknown, at least 100 years old
Classification: Shinigami, Captain of the 7th Division
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Enhanced animal senses, Spiritual Awareness, Enhanced Regeneration while in human form through the Humanization Technique, Expert Swordsmanship, Regeneration (Low-Mid) and invulnerability to physical harm when using Bankai and the Humanization Technique.
Attack Potency: Town level (Pulverized a large amount of rock with just his Shikai), likely higher in Bankai | At least City level, likely Mountain level (Managed to fight and hurt Bambietta)
Speed: Massively Hypersonic+ (Could react against Hollow Tōsen. Likely as fast as Toshiro Hitsugaya), the same with Bankai (Kokujō Tengen Myō'ō mirrors Komamura’s body movement) | Massively Hypersonic+ reactions and combat speed (Able to keep up with Bambietta Basterbine)
Lifting Strength: At least Class 1 (Able to throw the Resurrección form of the giant Arrancar Choe Neng Poww, who was close to if not the same size as the giant his Zanpakutō produces, and did so with apparent ease)
Striking Strength: Town Class, likely higher in Bankai | At least City Class, likely Mountain Class
Durability: At least Town level, likely higher (Took a Hado #90: Kurohitsugi at one third power from Sosuke Aizen and got back up a few moments later. Survived his Bankai getting multiple injuries and being one-shotted twice, still able to continue fighting in the first case. Able to endure multiple slashes from Hollow Tōsen which overpowered his own slashes) | At least City level, likely Mountain level (Also is immune to physical damage when using his Humanization Technique and Bankai)
Stamina: Very high (Capable of taking considerable amounts of damage and still continue on despite the severity of his injuries. Can continue fighting with injuries such as a collapsed rib cage and severed limbs)
Range: Several meters with Shikai, hundreds of metres with Bankai.
Standard Equipment: His Zanpakutō, Tenken, and his special armor.
Intelligence: High, as Sajin is cold, ruthless, and calculating when fighting.
Weaknesses: If his Bankai is harmed in any way, the wounds are reflected onto Komamura, essentially making it a larger target to a sufficiently strong opponent, and using the Humanization Technique turns Sajin into a full wolf after a short period of time within the state.
Hakuda Master: While not relying on the most advanced forms of unarmed combat, Komamura has great skill at brawling hand-to-hand fighting using his phenomenal strength to supplement his blows. This form of combat is what he excels in when not engaging in swordsmanship.
Master Swordsman: Komamura is highly proficient in swordsmanship, and is more than capable of holding his own against the likes of Kenpachi, who is arguably one of the most well-versed in swordsmanship as well as one of the greatest physical combatants in Soul Society.
Shunpo Expert: Komamura is highly proficient in Shunpo, with at least the average speed of a captain-level Shinigami. Komamura was able to grab Lieutenant Momo Hinamori just before Sternritter "E" Bambietta Basterbine's explosions came in contact with her.
Immense Spiritual Power: As a captain, Komamura possesses an incredible amount of spiritual energy. When Komamura releases his spiritual energy, it has the same magnitude of his enormous strength, and tends to destroy the area around him. He is quite skilled in hiding his spiritual presence because, due to his appearance, he does it quite frequently out of what he feels is a necessity to hide from others. He is able to use his spiritual pressure as a weapon, as he is capable of blasting back most normal enemies with a simple palm thrust without physically touching them.
Immense Strength: Due to his large stature, Komamura has unbelievable physical strength. He was able to throw the Resurrección form of the giant Arrancar Choe Neng Poww, who was close to if not the same size as the giant his Bankai produces, and did so with apparent ease.
Immense Endurance: Komamura is capable of taking considerable amounts of damage and still continuing to fight, despite the severity of his injuries. He refused medical treatment after being hit by Aizen's level 90 Kidō spell. He was also utterly unfazed from being punched across a great distance through parts of a city. He is durable enough to survive having his chest caved in and still continue to fight with no discernible handicap. Even after having his left hand severed by Aizen, he immediately counter-attacked, seeming to completely ignore the wound.
Enhanced Senses: Because of his animal-likeness, he is seemingly in possession of superior senses.
Animal Communication: It is also known that he is able to talk to animals.
Humanization Technique (人化の術, Jinka no Jutsu): A special technique that is unique to the werewolf clan that Komamura is from, which allows one to shed their beast form and return to their Human form. This is achieved by ritually removing one's heart. In this form, his body is nothing more than a shell. The secret technique of Human transformation allows his clan to obtain an immortal body by offering their physical heart. Therefore, as long as he is Human, he can never die. While in this state, attacks have no effect on either Komamura or his Bankai and all wounds quickly regenerate.
Tenken (天譴, Heavenly Punishment; Viz "Heavenly Retribution"): It takes the form of a normal katana. The cross-guard is a rectangle decorated with a pattern of vertical lines, with the long sides pinched in towards the middle. The overall appearance is similar to a squared-off hourglass.
- Shikai: Its Shikai command is "Roar" (轟け, Todoroke). Tenken maintains its form as a regular katana.
Shikai Special Ability: In its Shikai, Tenken creates various phantom body parts of a fearsome armored giant to copy whatever body part Komamura moves; for example, should Komamura swing his sword, a gigantic disembodied arm wielding a sword appears and mimics the movement. The body's gigantic parts generated by this Shikai possess strength and attacking power proportionate to their size (though not as powerful as Komamura's Bankai, due to not having a full body), making Komamura's Zanpakutō quite powerful.
Bankai: Kokujō Tengen Myō'ō (黒縄天譴明王, Vidyaraja of Kalasutra's Heavenly Punishment; Viz "Divine Retribution, Black Ropes of Ruination"): Komamura brings forth the entire giant, a Bankai of living armor. Standing at about a hundred meters tall, the giant resembles an armored samurai. It wields a sword with a guard similar to Komamura's, but with a different blade and a string hanging from the hilt. Komamura also retains its form as a regular katana. While in use, Komamura and his katana maintain a glow of spiritual energy.Bankai Special Ability: The giant copies Komamura's movements to devastating effect, allowing it to deal out colossal amounts of damage. Its strength is proportionally far greater than that of Komamura, due to its size. It is strong enough to take a released Arrancar's point-blank Cero without being damaged, and could easily smother him with its bare hands. Despite its enormous size, the giant is also deceptively fast, as it instantly copies all of Komamura's movements.
Kokujō Tengen Myō'ō: Dangai Jōe (黒縄天譴明王: 断鎧縄衣, Vidyaraja of Kalasutra's Heavenly Punishment: Severed Mail and Thread-Clad; Viz "Divine Retribution, Black Ropes of Ruination: Armor Repulsion Rope Raiment"): In its Dangai Jōe form, Kokujō Tengen Myō'ō's armor is removed, exposing a body composed of nothing but pure Reiatsu. Since its armor is its life, by shedding the armor, Kokujō Tengen Myō'ō is literally casting its life aside. When Komamura uses this technique, his Bankai brings forth the entire giant as usual. The difference is that in this form, the giant sheds its armor and only has a large cord wrapped around its body multiple times. Its visage is exposed, appearing to be that of a demonic creature. This form is only possible via the use of Komamura's Humanization Technique. Due to the nature of the technique used to attain this form and its symbiotic connection with its wielder, this Bankai is virtually invulnerable to physical harm.
