User Orihime Inoue

Santen Kesshun (三天結盾, Three Sacred Links Shield; Viz "Three-God Shield") is a technique used by Orihime Inoue.


Santen Kesshun is a defensive technique which allows Orihime to repel attacks. Orihime calls out the names of Hinagiku, Lily, and Baigon, who form a triangle, creating the foundation of a shield, before declaring the name of the technique, followed by the phrase "I reject" (私は拒絶する, watashi wa kyozetsu suru). This process serves as her kotodama, which activates the ability.[1]

The triangular shield allows her to repel the "outer shield". The shield is raised between her and her enemy, and it repels the attack before it hits its target.[2] It can also function as an airbag of sorts, allowing Orihime and anyone else nearby to survive a potentially lethal fall unharmed.[3] Orihime is later able to shape Santen Kesshun into a dome-shaped barrier large enough to easily hold herself and other individuals.[4]
