Hexapodus (ヘキサポダス, Hekisapodasu) is a Hollow which was purified by Ichigo.


Hexapodus has the appearance of a large six legged spider or beetle. He has gray green skin with orange joints as well as orange spots on his back. His mask is plain white with a relatively Human like face. His face is framed by two tufts of brown hair and a forelock of purple hair that falls over the top of his mask, making him look clown-like.[1]


Agent of the Shinigami arc


The Hollow gives chase.

Hexapodus appears next to the Yumisawa Children's Park in Karakura Town, where he finds the Plus of a little boy and attacks him. The plus runs away, but eventually trips and falls. Hexapodus is about to strike when he notices two figures standing nearby; Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki. He asks them who they are but instead of a reply, Ichigo cuts off his forelegs, and Hexapodus backs away to avoid further damage. When he notices Ichigo's back turned he tries a sneak attack, but Ichigo surprises him by stabbing through his mask and purifying him.[2]
