Main Article: List of Vanderich Members
Many members of the Vanderich wear different attire based on the attire style of their race, but they all carry the same Vanderich insignia on the uniform's left breast plate and wear white, black, or colored-based ankle-length and double-breasted cloaks with hoods.
All Arrancar members of the Kihei wear the same style of the standard Arrancar attire, but with a few adjustments: A white, long-sleeved (or sometimes short-sleeved) jacket with a black, double-breasted long cloak with a hood and the Vanderich insignia on the jacket's left breast plate, white hakama pants with a black outline, a black sash around the jacket's waist, a pair of black, ankle-high tabi, and a pair of white zori sandals.
The attire of all Sternritter Quincy members consists of a long, white, double-breasted trench coat with shoulder pads and a white, button-down bib. This coat is bound at the waist with a black belt, which is further adorned with a decorative buckle, and is worn over both white trousers and trench boots. Many members sport white hats with black peaks and a crest emblazoned on its front, which is reminiscent of the five-pointed variant of the Quincy cross. This insignia is reflected by the buttons of their other apparel. They also wear a distinctive white, ankle-length cloak over their uniform which features the Vanderich insignia emblazoned on its back and often a hood attached to the cloak's collar.

He states there could be 55 special war powers, since those warriors hold tremendous potential (even if some are kids).
Those who are classified as Special War Powers are listed in numerical order:
