Top 10 Strongest Bleach Characters


The Top TenXW

1Ichigo Kurosaki

Ichigo defeated Aizen so he should be at least near the top 5 not only that he can defeat all the captains and everyone in the soul society. He is always getting beat up but he always finds a way to win. Coyote stark should be numer 6 because 1 he has a very obvious weakness and got defeated by a captain. So if coyote stark espada 1 and got taken out by a captain imagine what ichigo can do! If there is a way to put ichigo in the top 5 please bring him up.

He is the main character so its obvious he should be number 1 and he beat every single enemy he had

Ichigo never had access to his full potential and still he was more powerful than a captain only using a fraction of his power, although he got beat up by nnoitra and ulquiorra he's skill is not the equivelent of a captain only his reiatsu ( is more of an experience issue rather than power) and also ehe became stronger than both of them combined when he fought aizen

He is my favorite - Kyle132

2Sosuke Aizen

He's such a troll, but I love him. I don't even know why Ichigo is in the top ten. One minute he's getting his ass kicked and the next, he's randomly powered up out of nowhere. If it wasn't for him being the main character, he would have died way in the beginning during the Soul Society Arc when Aizen stopped his zanpakutou with one finger and then nearly cut him in half. Also, we all know if it wasn't for Urahara's surprise appearance, Aizen would have totally beat Ichigo.

Obliterating nearly the whole soul society. HOW THE HECK CAN YOU NOT CALL THAT STRONG?!

Aizen is the strongest. he defeated many captains without even breaking a sweat even ichigo had second thoughts on fighting him because he knew it was impossible to defeat him

Aizen really is the second strongest in all of bleach, right after Urahara, because Aizen was so strong he beat all of the captains, and would have beaten Ichigo if Urahara hadn't interfered

3Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto

Aizen said it himself Yamamoto would have beat him if it wasn't for wonderweis. Juha Bach only beat him using cheap tricks their is no way he would lose to Juha Bach. Also Yamamoto was blamed by mayuri kurotsuchi for not killing juha bach a 1000 years ago hinting he beat him before. Juha Bach even stated he is much weaker than what he was a 1000 years ago. The only people who may beat him are the royal guards. The only person capable of beating him is the SOUL KING himself.

Yamamoto is the Captain Commander of the entire Gotei 13. He's been around for 1000 years. His Shikai burns everything. His Bankai wipes everything out of existance, burning it all, having the power to destroy the entire Soul Society! - SuperSnake7

Aizen stabbed him straight through the stomach and he didn't even flinch, he sacrificed an attack to be sure aizen won't trick him.badaas

4Kenpachi Zaraki

Zaraki Kenpachi IS the strongest in all of Soul Society. Look at it this way: In the beginning when he fought Ichigo, he could've killed him with not a sweat at all! The only reason for him losing to the main Character is because he loves to pro-lounge a good fight. He also took down Nnoitra, Espada 5. He even took down his own Clone who was apparently "stronger" with not much of a sweat, really. And he's the only one in the Anime I've seen do a one hit kill on TWO strong guys, stating the one boring. He also had three Quincy's dead on his back and the Zanpakuto through them, which not even Byakuya or any other Captains could deal with. Final, He did kill the first Kenpachi and heard his Zanpakuto speak for the very first time. What we might even know, is that he got a Shikai by now, maybe even Bankai. If not now, he will gain the rank for the strongest Shinigami/Bleach character after we learn about his Zanpakuto.

Dude this guy's INSANE, I don't know how he didn't at least make it into top five. He's already super overpowered as it is, but to make things even more insane, he won't ever stop fighting because he loves it so much. You cut him, he laughs. Definitely strong dontcha think?

He defeated the first Kenpachi when he was just a kid who didn't even know his own swords name. - Shaantar

He don't know his swords name and he destroys for fun

5Kisuke Urahara

Kisuke Urahara is extremely powerful. I only ranked him eighth because we haven't seen his full power. Without a doubt the most intelligent person in the entire series, and a master of Kido second only to Unohana, Kisuke Urahara is immensely powerful. - SuperSnake7

Shouldn't vote because we haven't seen him at his best. We know he can fight without breaking a sweat, he made it to captain easily, but he is the smartest character and most deceiving. He seems to pull all the strings and always comes out on top.

Urahara is also extremely genius obviously, maybe even up where 'L''s genius is, although he still has a lot more power to show so it's only obvious he is much stronger than Ichigo is and he is stronger than Aizen, who is really powerful, also it's just as well pretty obvious he is stronger than all the other captains, in fact considering how smart he is and how much power he already has displayed as well as his potential, he probably doesn't even have a match and no one can really beat him... I guess

He is the badass and he thought that he can beat ichigo. ichigo doesn't lose to urahara

Creator of the quincy race as well as the slayer of the strongest shinigami possibly of all time. Yamamoto may have been stronger in a fair fight but now that he possesses zanka no tachi he alone may possibly possess more power than the gotei 13 in it's entirety. He also leads the army that was able to decimate soul society and poses a great enough threat to the dimensions that the zero squad will be forced to participate in the upcoming battles. Unlike aizen he tends to kill his opponents swiftly and leaves little room for a miscalculation in his plan.

This is Juhabach your talking about. The one who killed Yammamoto like he was trash. He is Obviously the strongest until Ichigo surpasses him

Completely decimated Yamamoto and is more strategic with his battles than Aizen was. I don't think anyone can surpass him besides Ichigo.

He can defeat yamamoto with one strike and he also killed yamamoto so he should be on top

7Shunsui Kyoraku

Shunsui Kyoraku is probably the third strongest person in Soul Society. The first student taught by Yamamoto, he's one of the strongest Shinigami alive. He defeated Coyote Starrk, the first Espada and arguably the strongest, with only his Shikai, whereas Soifon, Hitsugaya, Ichigo and Byakuya had to go into Bankai to defeat their Espada opponents, with the first two still not being able to beat their foes. - SuperSnake7

Ukitake did nothing but absorb a few ceros and Love and Rose dealt no damage onto Stark even though they got a few hits in... Starks hierro was that strong. Kyoraku was the only one who dealt significant damage.

Actually it took three other captain level characters to defeat Coyote Shunsui only delt the final blow

Such a sassy badass 😍

8Yamamoto Genryūsai

Founded the Shin'ō Academy and Gotei 13 over 1,000 years ago corralled a band of powerful criminals and turned them into weapons of justice, to protect Sereitei. Reputed to have the most powerful bankai of all. Once defeated Yhwach but allowed him to live (unfortunately). Probably defeated Unohana at some point in time during recruitment. When engaging Kyōraku and Ukitake in battle (two very powerful captains), they were burdened with an intense reiatsu "so abyssal and encompassing as the depths of the sea". Killed by Yhwach, but ONLY after having his bankai stolen.


Progenitor of the respected Quincy race who slew Hollows for centuries. Defeated Yamamoto, founder of the Academy and commander of the Gotei 13 for over 1,000 years. He possesses the most powerful Bankai of all, after stealing it from Yamamoto. Has the ability to lend his power to whoever he likes, and absorb it upon that person's death. Currently at war with (and decimating) Sereitei, proceeding to the Reiōkyū, presumably to defeat the Royal Guard and face the Soul King himself with an unknown agenda.

He was able to defeat yamamato with a single strike he should be on top

10Byakuya Kuchiki

Senbonzakura has the potential to destroy a building with just one swing. Besides, it's hinted all throughout the series that he's on equal strenght with Kenpachi Zaraki, differences are their intellect. I bet these two will form the future "Elite of the Elite" like Shunsui, Unohana and Ukitake do right now.

Besides, he has an army of squealing fangirls

His moves are fast and deadly

God he should be first because of his immense speed and attitude!

He should be at 2

The Newcomers

?Captain Teemo

He was there from the beginning to the end, you never saw him, he was just watching and waiting for a time to strike with deadly darts.

?Kouga Kuchiki

Power!... Goes to him, he's probably a strong soul reaper who can posses unique abilities. He also wanted to be the king of the new world.. If he have to... Ithink he would be on the top.. Gosh he fought with byakuya at full power... He haven't using all.. If only muramasa was with him.. He'd stomp any shinigami even the head captain himself.

The Contenders

11Retsu/Yachiru Unohana

Unohana is one of the founding members of the Gotei 13, the first Kenpachi. She's the only person Kenpachi ever admired. She's strong enough to make even Shunsui and Ukitake scared. Being the most diabolical criminal in Soul Society's history, the inventor of "the art of killing" and being the greatest Kido Master in Soul Society's history makes Unohana truly someone to be feared. - SuperSnake7

Smart. Well-rounded powers, able to heal and hurt. Psychotic, but still intelligent. Power is being well-endowed in every aspect, and Unohana knows her stuff.

I love unohana, she was always my favorite character even before her reveal of being a crazed serial killer, but she is extremely powerful, being the first kenpachi and all. Besides being sweet and motherly she is sensible versatile and has enormous amounts of reishi, I don't think kubo should have killed her of for zaraki's spotlight... she had such good development going on :(

She is very powerful

12Coyote Starrk

Coyote Starrk is the strongest Espada, who fought four captains. He took down two ex-Captain Visoreds at the same time, and proved to be an equal to Shunsui. According to him, Shunsui would've had to use Bankai to stop Starrk if not for Ukitake. - SuperSnake7

Hi lost only because he do not want to fight really.

I thought he had more potential than he showed.

Bad ass cowboy

14Ulquiorra Cifer

Dude. He killed ichigo. And would be the number 1 espada if aizen seen his second form. Come on now

How isn't he in the top ten if ulquiorra is so strong

How id he, Ulquiorra, ULQUIORRA CIFER, THE ULQUIORRA CIFER, not, NOT, in the top 10?! I... Can't believe it?! Are you kidding me?! You must be insane?!

He is very serious and strong and he killed ichigo with no sweat just using two hands and has 2 forms after the main one he is the best espada no need to ask! 😉

15Oetsu Nimaiya

Oetsu Nimaiya is a member of the recently revealed Royal Guard. He's the inventor of the Zanpakuto. If that doesn't scream that he's one of the strongest, I don't know what does. - SuperSnake7

Severely overrated, and is of no real use. He sliced only thtough element of surprise, and later just got stomped not one but two times.

This guy should be in the top 6. Took down 2 of the quincies with no trouble.

16Jugram Haschwalth
17Renji Abarai

His monkey is a beast, that's all. And I'm a troll.

18Shinji Hirako

Shinji is the leader of the Visoreds. If not for the fact that we really haven't seen a lot from him, I would've put him at about Tenjiro's position. He manipulates the senses in a way that makes sword fighting impossible, and would confuse even the greatest swordsmen, like Yamamoto and Kenpachi. - SuperSnake7

We haven't even seen his bankai, nor have we seen him combine his mask with any of his sword abilities. Aizen made him seem weak, but you guys all forget that Aizen is the biggest troll with the biggest HAX ability. On any other opponent, Shinji's shikai itself would have been enough to crush ANY opponent, captain or not. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE of your senses is inverted. It'd be insanely hard just to walk forward. You might think you're walking forward, but for all we know you're walking backwards. You can't coordinate attacks, defense, timings, anything!

We haven't seen him at his best and his bankai but his shikai ability is over power. He apparently seems week, but he's captain of 5th squad on the leader of the Vaizards.

19Yoruichi Shihoin

I actually agree with most of this list surprisingly its spot on except I believe that Yoruichi should be somewhere in the top 10 just not sure where.

Yoruichi is definitely stronger than any eight out of ten captains... She cracked Aizen heiro with her fist and no weapon

Mysterious, and with abilities no one else has anything similar to.

20Isshin Kurosaki

With a flick of his fingers he sent Aizen flying... Plus he hasn't even recovered all his lost shinigami powers yet, the guy is terrifying

We barely know anything of his powers! I have a feeling he is so strong, imagine when we see his bankai
