Muramasa stands in Ichigo's way of rescuing Yamamoto Genryusai, and goads him into releasing his hollow powers against him. Meanwhile, Yoruichi, Ukitake and Shunsui realise that something is amiss and break away from their opponents. Having used the zanpakutō entities to distract Ichigo's companions, Muramasa tricks Ichigo into firing his most powerful Getsuga Tenshō at him, but deflects the attack into Yamamoto's barrier, shattering it just as Yoruichi and the rest arrive to prevent this from happening. Muramasa reveals that Yamamoto encased himself in the barrier to prevent him from stealing Ryūjin Jakka. But with Ichigo's hollow-based attack, it allows Muramasa to easily obtain Yamamoto's zanpakuto entity. When Muramasa says that he has no need for the other entities anymore, Katen Kyōkotsu and Sōgyo no Kotowari attack him but end up having their physical forms destroyed by Ryūjin Jakka. Muramasa makes his escape with Ryūjin Jakka, while Yamamoto reveals to the others that Muramasa intends to destroy the Gotei 13 with it.
