Kidō (鬼道, "demon way", or "spirit way" sometimes translated as Demon Arts) is one of the four basic Shinigami combat forms, at least according to Sōsuke Aizen.
Kidō is the technique that Shinigami use to focus their Spiritual Energy into magic spells of various powers. These spells serve a wide variety of uses such as healing, defense, or combat.
The Kidō Corps is a branch of Soul Society's military which excels in the mastery of Kidō.
Each spell is graded on a scale from 1 to 99, the latter being the most powerful and the most difficult to perform. The scale is a measure of difficulty, as there can be multiple spells which share the same level. To use Kidō, a Shinigami must recite the specific incantation for the spell, which is often long and requires a few seconds to speak.
This weakness can be negated by Shinigami capable of using Eishohaki, a technique that releases Kidō without a spirit chant. While it decreases the time needed to release the Kidō, it drastically weakens the spell While anyone well versed in Kidō can use this technique, it is most effective when done by a skilled practitioner, otherwise the spell could utterly fail. The most skilled experts are capable of using this technique to amazing effect.
The power of a spell relies on the power of the user, as even a low-level spell can be utterly devastating when utilized by a high-class Shinigami.
There are three main types of Kidō: binding spells, destruction spells, and healing spells.
- Bakudō (Binding spells): are a broad category of defensive spells which block or repel attacks or freezes enemies in place.
- Hadō (Destructive spells): refer to offensive spells which harm an enemy or cause damage.
- Healing spells: do not have known names, numbers, or incantations to cast, and simply heal the target. As the user holds his hands above the patients wounds, his/her palms glow with green spiritual energy to facilitate healing. For the mechanics of healing, the patient's Reiatsu is replenished first. Then the body's Reiatsu works with the healer's Reiatsu to heal the patient's body.
Though Kidō is commonly used by Shinigami in combat, it has several weaknesses that make it difficult to use for that purpose. All of the spells have fairly long incantations and require concentration; because of this, the person using the Kidō leaves themself open to attack during the duration of the incantation. In addition, if an opponent is familiar with Kidō, there is the possibility of them identifying the spell by its incantation before it can even be used. However, highly skilled Kidō users can use various techniques to counter these weaknesses, such as Eishohaki and "Double Incantation", which involves mixing the incantations of two or more Kidō spells together to save time and confuse ones opponent. A rarer use of Kidō is mixing various spells (such as Bakudō and Hadō together) for unique effects, which is the mark of skilled user. Kidō is commonly seen used in instances of surprise attacks rather then all out assaults, being most effective when one's opponent doesn't see it coming.

The very thought of getting close to it doesn't even occur to those outside it. It is so powerful and unique in composition that it cannot be undone by Shinigami Kidō.
|92.||Keimusho Orikaeshi (刑務所折り返し, Prison Cuffs)||This technique was used by Kisuke Urahara on Sōsuke Aizen. A pair of handcuffs appears on the target's palms, blocking his/her Reiatsu and then using it to explode.
|93.||Ryubi no Jōmon (竜尾の城門, The Gate of Dragon Tail)||Hachigen Ushōda used this barrier technique to block Barragan Luisenbarn's aging ability. The technique works by creating over a dozen pillars which are arranged by hand gestures, making them form a gigantic shield or door-like barrier between the caster and the opponent. Together with Koko no Jomon, Kigai no Jomon and Hoyoku no Jomon, it forms Shiji no Saimon.
Incantation: Brethren-in-arms withdrawing for the distance of 8 sun and standing still; blue bolt, white bolt, black bolt, red bolt; sinking into the ocean together seeking redemption.

|96.||Hoyoku no Jōmon (鳳翼の城門, The Gate of Phoenix Wings)||This technique is another one of Hachigen Ushōda new Kidō barrier techniques developed after he became a Vizard. This barrier is created from an obelisk and many planks combining to form a sort of lampshade resembling enfolding wings and a crude bird's head/body. Together with Ryubi no Jomon, Koko no Jomon and Kikai no Jomon, it forms Shiji no Saimon.
|97.||Shiji no Saimon (四獣の塞門, The Gate of Four Beasts)||This technique is another one of Hachigen Ushōda new Kidō barrier techniques developed after he became a Vizard. This barrier is formed by combining Ryubi no Jomon, Koko no Jomon, Kikai no Jomon and Hoyoku no Jomon. When the four barriers come together, they create a rectangular prison-like barrier around the opponent.
|98.||Shisō Kekkai (四葬結界, Quad Burial Barrier)||This technique was used by Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, and is the seal used to lock away Kōga Kuchiki.

Incantation: First Song: Halting Fabric (初曲・止繃, Shokyoku: Shiryū). Second Song: Hundred Linked Bolts (弐曲・百連閂, Nikyoku: Hyakurensan). Final Song: Great Seal of 10,000 Forbiddings (終曲・卍禁太封, Shūkyoku: Bankin Taihō).|

|90.||Kurohitsugi (黒棺, Black Coffin)||Envelops the target with a powerful torrent of gravity that takes the form of a box of black energy, covered in several spear-like protrusions. The spears then pierce the box, lacerating the one inside from head to toe. The spell is very difficult to use, as even Aizen could only unleash a third of its power without stating the particular incantation, when he used it on Sajin Komamura. However, when Aizen later used it on Ichigo Kurosaki with the incantation, he stated that it possessed enough power to distort space and time. It is also noticeably-different in appearance. In accordance with Aizen's claim that this technique can distort space-time, the sky appears to darken as multiple boxes of black energy appear, each of them topped off with cross-shaped spears, before they appear to enclose themselves on their victim.

|92.||Sanjū Tomoe Happa (三重巴発破, Triple Tomoe Explosive Blast)||The user generates three tomoe, made out of red reiryoku, which then links together with a chain of energy. The user then hurls the technique like a shuriken, which causes a massive explosion, capable of leveling several city blocks, upon impact.|
|96.||Ittō Kasō (一刀火葬, Single Blade Cremation)||A forbidden spell used by Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto. It is a spell that causes a huge pillar of fire to erupt from the ground in the shape of a katana's tip. It is implied to be a forbidden technique that can only be activated by using one's own body as a catalyst. Aizen calls it the spell of sacrifice.
|99.||Taihensame Ago (大変鮫顎, Great Shark Jaw)||A kidō which creates a gigantic shark, far larger than the user, to attack the opponent.

|Kindō (禁じられた呪文, "Forbidden Spells")|
|Jikanteishi (時間停止, Temporal Stasis)||A forbidden spell used by Tessai along with Spatial Displacement. It is a spell that halts time in a specific area.Incantation: unknown.|
|Kūkanten'i (空間転位, Spatial Displacement)||A forbidden spell used by Tessai with Temporal Stasis to teleport a specified portion of space from one point to another, transporting even other active Kidō spells.Incantation: unknown.|
- Hanki (反鬼, Reverse Demon): An ability which nullifies an opponent's Kidō by hitting it with another one of perfectly opposite speed and energy. The ability can even neutralize an opponent's movements. (Somewhat erroneously named Hanki Sōsai in the Viz translation, as sōsai (相殺) means "mutual cancellation", referring to the ability's effect.)
- Shunkō (瞬閧, Flash Cry): An advanced secret battle technique that combines the grappling technique of Hakuda and the incantation technique of Kidō. It is an ultra-powerful technique in which one drives Kidō into one's arms and legs. The Kidō itself can also be controlled and fired at opponents from the body. Shunkō first appeared being used by Captain Soifon in her fight against her old master, Yoruichi Shihōin. Soifon states she invented the technique of combining Kidō and Hakuda so recently that she had no experience with it in battle, let alone enough time to give it a name. Yoruichi, however, reveals Shunkō is the technique's name, and that she invented and learned the ability long before Soifon. The keisen uniform has no back or sleeves because the fabric will rip apart when the user's back and arms are filled with Kidō. Though Yoruichi's Shunkō is perfected, unlike Soifon's version, she still has difficulties controlling it. It could be said that Shunkō is a secret technique used by the Corps Commander of the Executive Militia. The uniform worn when punishment is carried out is specifically geared for Shunkō.
