- In the Shinigami Illustrated Picture Book, Mayuri tells Renji and Hisagi that he could repair Renji's Zanpakutou and shows them a pamphlet with some possible forms that the Zanpakutou Spirit could take, one of them involved a change of the gender and species. Hisagi and Renji imagined a busty girl with red hair that is very similar to the Zanpakutou Spirit version of Zabimaru that appears in the "Zanpakutou Unknown Tales Arc".
