Top Ten Strongest Captains in 'Bleach' AnimeOut of the Thirteen Court Guard Division Captains, only the toughest and best ten will make the grade! Who are they? Vote and see! Be sure to give a logical answer!
The Top TenXW
Zaraki is the strongest. I saw in many episode he wiped out the opponent with pure skill and power cause he unable to use bankai or even had his own zanpakutou. So he always fight by his skill.
Common dude, he needs to restrain his powers from total carnage.
You can't complain about his procrastination habits, because when it comes to slaughtering he enjoys the thrill of it
It has to be Kenpachi or Shigekuni. I have seen Kenpachi fight more and his power has always been emphasized more than anyone. However it it was not Kenpachi, it would no doubt have to be Shigenkuni, I mean he took on two captains at once with ease during the events when Ichigo broke into the soul society to save Rukia
He's my only idol in bleachV76 Comments
The real question is who is the strongest capitan after him?
Because yamamoto is the strongest capitan and it's a fact because they even says that in the anime
He's Head-Captain. Stronger than 2 Captains put together. Even Kyoraku and Ukitake, the strongest captains can't beat him.
Dude... Clearly he's the strongest oO the only way people can say other wise clearly is because they are just delusional... Or don't want to face the truth. One of his attacks can destroy both the soul society and the world of the living. Plus he's the only one to even come close to harming aizen. Face the truth People.. He's the Top Dog. Wooh! Old Man Captain for the win!
He is the one leader who can beat ichigoV40 Comments
The best selfless and noble character in the anime. Although he is shown to be a cold person yet he care for his subordinates and trust them
Relax but super deadly. Never faint like ichigo does. Kill many tough boss.
The best character in the anime although he keeps a lot to himself and that's why his zanpakuto spirit wears a mask but we can see from the way he protects rukia at all costs that he really does care about her the best taicho ever!
I like his personalityV52 Comments
he is one of the most experient taichos, was trained by yamma and for some reason we only get to see his SHIKAI nearly in the end. there is still to refer that he beated the 1st espada with his shikai...
I think that the series intended to make a big deal about this character. We only get to see a glimpse of his abilities, witch overwhelmed espada number one. I believe that if the series ever gets a second go they will make good use of him.
He was taught by Yamamoto. Killed 1# Espada. Last but not least is that he became the new head captain for crying out loud.
A true warrior and o calm and composed fighterV36 Comments
This extremely evil man. For the longest time, it seemed like there was no hope of anyone beating him. He wasn't just strong physically, no he had to be a genius too! He had the entire divisions turn against each other and killing their own. He gets my vote.
Aizen is the strongest because he's the smartest of all the captains and his power is exceeded by no one besides ichigo in their final fight. His pure skill alone was enough to shame the other captains while trying to retrieve rukia
If we're going off of Ichigo rescuing Rukia Then Aizen should be number 2, Because he was Stronger than everyone except Yamamoto at that time.
He fought off lots of other captains and he wonV23 Comments
Personally, I voted hitsugaya taicho (that's how he likes to be refereed as) not only because he's cute, intelligent, strong, cool etc. Its because he has somethings that other taichos don't have like he strives to be accurate, he has perseverance (don't know how to spell that word... ) and he does his duty exactly as it should be done. He also slashes back when things get tough and what's more, he's mature! He's not some sort of perverted person, he doesn't think himself too high and mighty for other soul reapers and he takes his job seriously. Hitsugaya taicho also became a captain because not just of natural talent though he definitely had that, but because he also was a hardworking person who sets their goal and goes straight for it without hesitation.
He is a genius )) as they call him a child prodigy, and he is like the youngest captain while the others more senior than him are just vice captains
Hitsugaya is simply the best (not in power, but hey... ). And as my favorite character from Bleach, it's inevitable that I would vote for him. In addition, it is more cute then gives his Extra Points...
I know it has no connection with the vote on the best captain but I view a video that showed the top 10 good guys from Bleach! And it was my first Hitsu'-kun! "... Second and third Ichigo Ulquiorra.
Here... Is for her that I would vote for him!
Still young, but become a captain and all of captain admit his power. He will step up the older captain soon.V50 Comments
Other captains are scared of her, she hasn't shown her true capabilities yet, but she is the oldest captain and even shunsui, who is known as one of the best shingami fears her, so I think besides the head captain she is the strongest, and about kenpachi I feel he is a tad bit overrated I mean yeah he is physically bad ass but I mean Suei Fong (Spelling) shikai could easily kill him, he is to slow and couldn't block her, he would be dead
Though she is never seen in combat, nevertheless her combat stats are currently second amongst the current Taichos.
Dude, her name even means "violent"... And the scariest part is, she looks like a sweet motherly lady, never raises her voice, and then allofasudden she lets her hair down and BAM - the bloodthirsty and notorious, most-wanted criminal Unohana Yachiru. She even scares the other captains, and the only other ones that induce that kind of fear into their fellow captains are Yamamoto and Kenpachi. She should at least be up there with them, not FIFTH!
I bet Unohana is ranking here because the voters didn't know what happened to her and zaraki in the mangaV9 Comments
Despite his tuberculosis, this Taicho ranks in the top five Taichos in the history of Soul Society.
I just think his character is cool
I think he's a very powerful captain and I think he should be way above toshiro hitsugaya and byakuya.
(by the way if it wasn't for his illness I believe he would be much more powerful)
Gin is stronger than a lot of these captains purely because of his zanpakto and experience. I would hate to have to face him. Mostly because I would be fangirling too much for me to attack... Same goes for Byakuya and Toshiro... - Animeartist23
I don't watch any fillers, but there is absolutely NOTHING in the main storyline that suggests Gin is weaker than shunsui, unohana, and ukitake. They all go into the same bin, with shunsui probably the strongest
Gin ichimaru is my favorite character, since he fought aizen. He died
Gin should be something like 5th alright!V14 Comments
He seems to be depicted as a wild card, which gives me the impression his full potential won't be revealed until it has to. Other soul reapers seem to regard him as some sort of legend among captains.
Aizen himself says he can subjugate soul king he definitely ranks in 1 or 2
Because he seems to know everything that makes his action more rational. It is his biggest edge. Though, former captain of squad two can be better.
Best for businessV7 Comments
A devastatingly powerful bankai... Although having flaws is pretty powerful... Plus sajin's sheer durability is amazing shown by how he endured d no.99 kido from aizen! Amazing
Relying almost totally on brute strength with less-than-average speed and average swordsmanship skills as a Taicho, this Anthropomorphic canine ranks the lowest amongst Taichos.
Based purely around immeasurable speed and unmatched attack prowess, this Taicho is well-versed in the swift kill.
Shes so strong like the others she should be in top 5
That 2 hit kill doesn't work with everyone. Zaraki has more than enough reiatsu to forcibly remove the seal from her attack just like aizen did.V4 Comments
Relying more on wits and cunning, this Taicho focuses more on the art of deception to stand victorious.
Creepy but yet awesome guy! I don't think anyone can escape his poison and his bankai can eat people up and come out poisonous blade. The best!
A random alien freak who will literally dissect anything
A real creepy guy.V3 Comments
An old lady who can whoop asses without even using a sword. Yoruichi is also the ex-general of squad 1. She is a very strong and powerful woman who can easily beat byakuya and other captains. She hasn't even gotten a scratch fighting 3 Squad Captains and 4 Vice Captains.
Badass who will kill you without a sword
She 's stronger than Soifon for sure. Why is she lower than her anyway? - Goku02V2 Comments
What the hell... Did you forget about Isshin kurosaki, the ex-captain of squad 10. He is one of the most strongest captains. He fought aizen without even releasing his shikai and defeated an arrancar with one strike.V1 Comment
Funny how she is now Captain Commander, yet #17 on this listV3 Comments
This captain even though being mentioned in filler, was a part of the canon, and non canonically, he sealed Koga, who had aizens zanpakuto just smaller. Come on, that takes grade a badassery there.
Oh come on, this guy was badass! My vote goes to this guy as well, weakest, but still a captain, if he were to hollowfy against mask he could've really done some damage.V1 Comment
Although he is doesn't enjoy battles and wants justice his zanpakuto is very strong
