Rōmaji resupira
English Spanish for "Breathe"

Japanese for "Breath of Death"

Technique Type Resurrección
User Baraggan Louisenbairn

Respira (死の息吹 (レスピラ), resupira; Spanish for "Breathe", Japanese for "Breath of Death") is a technique used by Baraggan Louisenbairn while in his Resurrección, Arrogante.


Baraggan unleashes a purplish black, smoke-like miasma which radiates outward from him. Respira immediately ages and rots anything which it comes into contact with. It moved fast enough to strike 2nd Division Captain Suì-Fēng while she was attempting to escape from it at full speed, and decayed the skin on Suì-Fēng's left arm until only shredded clothes and her arm's skeleton were left behind. Even after Suì-Fēng escaped the attack, the deterioration continued until the afflicted area had been amputated.[1] Baraggan can control the speed of Respira, which he displayed when he purposely released a slower Respira when chasing Ōmaeda.[2] Respira can even dissolve Kidō, which Baraggan demonstrated when he destroyed a Kidō cage which Hachigen had imprisoned him in.[3] Baraggan explained this effect by stating the things which living beings create die because all living things eventually die.[4] Under normal circumstances, Baraggan is protected from the effects of his own ability. However, this protection is negated if his Respira somehow enters his own body.[5]
