temporarily replaces Grimmjow Jeagerjaques as the 6th Espada when Grimmjow is demoted by the loss of his arm. Luppi is a youthful Espada with short black hair and a rather feminine face. The remains of his hollow mask (a top row of teeth) rests on the left side of his head, looking like a hair comb or barette. Luppi's attire consists of long sleeves that fall past his hands, hiding them. The location of his hollow hole is hidden from view, but his Espada tattoo is prominently displayed on his right hip. Luppi tends to be rather arrogant, insulting Grimmjow for his lowered rank and boasting constantly when in battle. He tends to say "Sorry!" in a mocking tone after insulting somebody. After Grimmjow's arm is restored, he kills Luppi to regain his Espada rank. Luppi and Gin Ichimaru seem to have been on good terms, as Gin comments about being lonely after Luppi's death, citing the fact that the two often talked.
Luppi's zanpakutō is Trepadora (蔦嬢（トレパドーラ）, Torepadōra?, Spanish for "climber," Japanese for "ivy girl") a short blade resembling a kodachi or tantō that he wears close to the armpit. Trepadora is released with the command "strangle" (縊れ, kubire?). When Trepadora is released, eight tendrils sprout from a carapace mounted on Luppi's back. Luppi's mask also changes, growing into a makeshift helmet. Luppi can freely and independently control these tentacles to attack his opponents, making him skilled at group combat. The tentacles can also grow spikes to cause additional damage. The carapace can also rotate, allowing Luppi to spin the tentacles like helicopter blades.
