Reiryoku (霊力, Spiritual Power) is a power based on spiritual sensitivity and willpower. It provides power to Shinigami and other spiritual beings.
In Bleach Universe Spiritual beings and humans each possess a certain amount of Reiryoku. When this amount exceeds a certain level, the person gains superhuman abilities. Humans with an above-average level of Reiryoku are very rare. A higher level of Reiryoku allows Humans to see ghosts, such as Pluses, Shinigami, and Hollows.
Soul Society’s Shinigami are essentially souls with high levels of Reiryoku who receive special training to use them. Reiryoku is most quickly enhanced in life-or-death situations. Reiatsu (Spiritual Pressure) refers to the physical force generated by Reiryoku when released.
Here we take a look at the various energy levels in Bleach to better understand the true abilities of the characters.

Basic Spiritual Power
It corresponds to those who possess a minimal level of spiritual power. Those with this level of power may or may not be spiritually aware to a small extent, but have no real spiritual power otherwise. Humans also possess this level of power. (Below Average)
Moderate Spiritual Level:
This spiritual power level relates to persons who have a moderate amount of spiritual power. This amount of strength is prevalent among folks who have a high level of spiritual awareness and may even possess powers of their own, but it varies from person to person. This is also a common degree of power for low-ranking seated and non-seated Gotei 13 members, as well as individuals of lesser power.
High Spiritual Energy Level:
This level of spiritual strength refers to persons who have a higher-than-average level of spiritual power that can be finely regulated. This amount of spiritual strength is frequent among seated officers of the average lieutenant rank and higher.
Great Spiritual Energy Level:
This level of spiritual power is reserved for those who have a great deal of spiritual power that they can finely regulate. This amount of spiritual strength is common among Captains of middling rank.
Immense Spiritual Energy Level:
This level of spiritual power is reserved for those who have a tremendous quantity of spiritual power that they can finely regulate. This amount of spiritual strength is mirrored in its ability to enhance a person in fighting as well as its ability to manipulate the surrounding environment, allowing the wielder to employ it to astonishing degrees in combat. Those with an above-average Captain rank, or Espada Amount, are more likely to have this level of spiritual strength.
Vast Spiritual Energy Level:
This spiritual power level is shared by persons who have a tremendous amount of spiritual energy as well as those who inadvertently leak reiatsu. This degree of spiritual force has the potential to seep from a person or, if released, to have a disastrous effect on the surrounding surroundings. Those at this level have mastered their reiatsu so that it does not cause destruction, or they have placed a limit limitation on themselves because it can unintentionally affect those around them. Only a few high-level shinigami captains, Espada # 0-4, Quincy, have this level of spiritual ability.
Massive Spiritual Power:
This level of spiritual power is reserved for those who have a tremendous amount of spiritual energy, both wild and tamed. When unleashed to its full potential, this level of spiritual force is gigantic or astonishing. Near Head Captain rank, Vizard Leader, Quincy, Bount, and Fullbringer Leader or Cero, Primera, Segunda, and Tercera Espada Amount, this level of spiritual power is prevalent.
Crushing Spiritual Power:
This level of spiritual power refers to persons who have a tremendous amount of destructive spiritual force. This degree of spiritual force has the potential to leak out and ruin or incinerate the region around it. These levels of spiritual pressure improve a user’s combat abilities as well as their capacity to master them. When this power is activated, it has the capacity to destroy the bones of weaker opponents and make stronger opponents’ muscles move more slowly. In their seal form, Arrancars do not have this amount of spiritual power. This level of spiritual power is frequent among individuals nearing Head Captain rank, Vizard Leader, Quincy, Bount, and Fullbringer Leader, or Cero, Primera, Segunda, and Tercera Espada Level, but mostly Royal Guard’s level.
Overwhelming Spiritual Power:
This degree of spiritual power belongs to persons who have a tremendous amount of spiritual energy that is intense, rough, thick, and heavy. The degree of pressure is so outrageously or shockingly high that some individuals describe it as “feeling like there’s an ocean above the sky…” This level of spiritual strength is typical among people in the Segunda Etapa who hold the Head Captain position, or Esapda Commander, Cero, and Primera Espada.
