Szayelaporro can be reborn if he is injured beyond repair by "impregnating" an enemy. When he has physical contact with the victim, he can implant a portion of himself inside their body. Later, he "devours" his way out of their body by way of absorbing all the fluids and chemicals of the victim, killing them in the process, and redevelops his body in a matter of seconds from a liquid-like casing coming from the victim's mouth. Szayelaporro takes great pride in this ability, comparing it to that of a phoenix and pretentiously proclaiming himself a "perfect being" because of it. It was used on 12th Division Lieutenant Nemu Kurotsuchi, but despite Szayelaporro's remarks on it killing the victim, she survived.
