|“||You seem to be having difficulty grasping the nature of the ability I possess. Each of the Espada holds dominion over a different form of death. The ten different paths that can lead a human to death. This is reflected in their individual abilities, their ideologies, and forms the basis of their existence. Isolation. Sacrifice. Emptiness. Despair. Destruction. Intoxication. Insanity. Avarice. Rage. And the form of death over which I hold dominion is 'age'. 'Age', that is to say, 'time'. The greatest, and most absolute form. The death that inevitably awaits all things.||„|

Attack Potency: Large Island level (Stated by Ulquiorra that he was above him. His Gran Rey Cero is this strong, ) | Country level (His Resurrección was stated to be powerful enough to destroy Las Noches. Should have the same effects as the Gran Rey Cero. His normal Cero is an order of magnitude lower than Cero Oscuras and his Cero Oscuras should at least be this strong), Respira ignores conventional durability

Stamina: Very high. Vastly weaker characters can fight for days without issue and also with injuries that would be fatal to even the hardiest of normal humans. Capable of fighting even with his body rotting away.
Range: Extended melee range with Arrogante, several kilometres with Cero, Gran Rey Cero, Cero Oscuras.
Standard Equipment: His Zanpakutō, Arrogante, Caja Negación
Intelligence: Baraggan is quite the insightful character as his apperance may give. He was able to deduce that the Jūreichi was a fake and its four pillars needed to be destroyed first in order to reveal the real Jūreichi. In fact, he further concluded that the four pillars would be in the cardinal points. He is also quite the effective leader as he commanded large armies of Hollows when he was originally king of Hueco Mundo thousands of years ago.
Weaknesses: The barrier he uses to protect himself from the effects of his ability can be negated if his Respira somehow enters his own body.
Cero: A powerful blast of concentrated spiritual energy fired in a laser like fashion that only Hollows, Arrancars, and Visoreds can use. The power, force, speed, and blast area of the Cero is dependent on the strength, spiritual power, and sometimes skill of the user.
- Gran Rey Cero: A much more powerful Cero only accessible to the Espada. By mixing their blood with a Cero, the Espada can discharge a blast that can distort space and is powerful enough to destroy Las Noches.
- Cero Oscuras: A powerful Cero that can only be used by the Espada in their Resurrección. This Cero is powerful enough to destroy Las Noches as well.
Sonído: The Arrancar equivalent of Shunpo; however, is more akin to teleporting as the character completely disappears from senses from point A to point B.
Hierro: An ability that allows Arrancars to harden their skin with Reiyroku to defend against incoming attacks.
Pesquisa: An energy sensing technique that allows Arrancars to sense any foes nearby and gauge how strong they are.
Descorrer: An Arrancar technique that allows them to travel between Hueco Mundo and the Living World.
Caja Negacion: These cubes are capable of sealing away an enemy from the battlefield for a very long time, even foes that are far stronger, however the time limit for the stronger foes is much shorter than those on the same level as him.
Senescencia: Baraggan's aspect of death as an Espada is aging. He possesses abilities based around time manipulation due to it.
- Time Dilation Field: A field that surrounds Baraggan that slows the time around him. It prevents surprise attacks and slows all attacks while leave the attacker open for a counter.
- Age Acceleration: Baraggan can rapidly accelerate the aging of whatever he touches. It is rapid enough to accelerate the aging of Suì-Fēng's arm to a point of being brittle enough to instantly break.
Resurrección: The Arrancar equivalent of a Shikai/Bankai, this form allows an Arrancar to unleash their true power as a Hollow.
Arrogante: Baraggan's Resurrección that is released upon the command Decay. His person is entirely shrouded in a dark cloak and his body is transformed to a skeleton with a crown. It grants new abilities and further amplifies his previous abilities.
- Respira: Baraggan generates a miasma that spreads outwards to rapidly age everything caught in it or making contact with it. It can even affect inanimate objects or energy projections like Kidō. The aging is rapid enough to near-instantly turn skeletonize Suì-Fēng's arm despite her Shinigami being able to live over thousands of years.
- Gran Caida: Barragan summons a large axe to fight his enemies in close range.
