Top 10 Strongest Bleach Characters

The Top Ten
1 Ichigo Kurosaki Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

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 number 6 because he has a very obvious weakness and got defeated by a captain. So if Coyote Stark, Espada 1, 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.

Ichigo is a killer when he is in beast mode. He and Rukia make a perfect team, while he and Orihime are the perfect couple. Go get Orihime, Ichigo. Keep killing those hollows anytime you fight them. You are the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!

2 Sosuke Aizen Sosuke Aizen is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

As of now, Aizen is in Muken without Kyoka Suigetsu, and he is around ten times stronger than when he last fought Ichigo. His rise in spiritual pressure is a complete mystery, reaching such a high level that anyone who gets close to him is instantly disintegrated. He even used his own spirit energy to attack and destroy the Soul King's palace. I have never witnessed someone with such immense spirit energy.

His current Hado #90 was able to eliminate a large number of those strange eye creatures spanning the size of a continent. Now, imagine this: his current power is being restrained by the chair, and I'm sure it greatly limits him. The Soul Society must have intended for it to restrict him as much as possible. Just think about all that power that's probably being held back, possibly restricting around 90% of his true power.

If it were suddenly unleashed, it would be terrifying. There would be no one capable of even touching, let alone challenging Aizen, without being disintegrated.

3 Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto

Strongest Zanpakuto. Again, only the Soul King can beat him. Aizen stabbed him straight through the stomach and he didn't even flinch. He sacrificed an attack to be sure Aizen wouldn't trick him. He is OP and could beat Ichigo. Other lists say so too.

Aizen said it himself: Yamamoto would have beaten him if it wasn't for Wonderweiss. Juha Bach only beat him using cheap tricks. There is no way he would lose to Juha Bach. Also, Yamamoto was blamed by Mayuri Kurotsuchi for not killing Juha Bach 1,000 years ago, hinting he beat him before. Juha Bach even stated he is much weaker than what he was 1,000 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.

4 Yhwach

Progenitor of the respected Quincy race who slew Hollows for centuries. He 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. He 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) Seireitei, proceeding to the Reiōkyū, presumably to defeat the Royal Guard and face the Soul King himself with an unknown agenda.

5 Kenpachi Zaraki Kenpachi Zaraki is a fictional character and an antihero in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.

I genuinely think he's gone past Yamamoto in terms of power. He's won almost all of his fights using only one hand. When he did use his second hand, he obliterated his opponent with one swing. All of the fights we've seen, bar one, were using less power than he had when he was a child.

If he swung Nozarashi now, while it was released, with both hands at full force, it would be game over for whoever was in front of him, and probably a lot of others. His potential is ever growing, and if he goes Bankai, then I can't see anyone matching that power.

6 Kisuke Urahara Kisuke Urahara is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

While I vote for him, I don't think we can put him or Ichigo on this poll for one reason. They haven't shown or reached their full potential. Let's be honest, Kisuke is known to be a master at everything, and Ichigo is still very young and inexperienced. Kisuke hasn't even shown his Bankai yet. He only used his shikai against Aizen and managed to claim victory by setting up a plan that would use Ichigo to weaken Aizen. This shows that he's also a pure genius. While I may be wrong, this is my opinion on this badass man.

7 Shunsui Kyoraku Shunsui Kyoraku is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

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. Meanwhile, 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.

Shunsui is definitely up there in terms of power. With Starrk, they were basically of the same strength. But people should remember that Starrk also had the help of Wonderweiss. Without Wonderweiss, Starrk wouldn't have gotten the opening on Shunsui.

8 Ulquiorra Cifer Ulquiorra Cifer is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

He killed Ichigo. Ichigo had to go completely hollow to beat him, and he only had to partially hollow-fy fighting all other opponents up to this point (including captains). The only other person that required more than complete hollowification to defeat was Aizen.

He should at least be in the top 4 behind Ichigo, Aizen, and Yamamoto.

His second form is strong enough to destroy all of Hueco Mundo with no sweat, something even a released Yammy couldn't do. Ichigo would have been killed off so easily if not for two things: the advantage of being the main character, and his random hollow transformation that was insanely strong.

9 Ichibei Hyosube

Everything black that exists in this world bends to his whim.

Ichigo is no match for him since he can manipulate black, names, and even use secret Hado. He almost killed Yhwach.

10 Jugram Haschwalth Jugram Haschwalth is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.
The Contenders
11 Byakuya Kuchiki

Senbonzakura has the potential to destroy a building with just one swing. Besides, it's hinted throughout the series that he's of equal strength with Kenpachi Zaraki. The differences are in 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.

Byakuya is way stronger than Kenpachi. Ichigo needs a Bankai as well as his hollow self, not to forget a powerful reiatsu-concentrated blow to defeat Byakuya. But Kenpachi loses without Ichigo even using the Bankai.

Byakuya has one of the strongest Bankai. With Senkei (Annihilationscape), he can defeat Kenpachi. Not to mention that he can use Danku (Binding Spell No. 81) to block Kenpachi's attacks, even without incantation. His proficiency in kidou and his speed are greater than Urahara's.

According to me, the ranking is:

1. Ichigo Kurosaki
2. Juhabach
3. Genryuusai Shigekuni Yamamoto
4. Sosuke Aizen
5. Unohana Retsu / Yachiru
6. Kyouraku Shunsui
7. Kuchiki Byakuya

I hate to rank him seventh as he is my favorite character, but this is the truth.

12 Retsu Unohana

Unohana is one of the founding members of the Gotei 13 and 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 the greatest Kido Master in Soul Society's history makes Unohana truly someone to be feared.

The only reason Kenpachi could even beat her is because she made him strong enough to do so. Any ranking of Kenpachi should have her immediately behind. It was acknowledged there was nobody in Soul Society stronger than her, except him.

13 Oetsu Nimaiya

Apart from creating the Zanpakuto, his defeat of the Elite Guard was flawless. They never saw him coming despite their obvious strength. His strength was proven there.

He also displayed intelligence when he quickly figured out how to get past Askin's technique and take him out. Had it not been for Juha Bach, the Elite Guard would have been taken out by a single member of Squad Zero.

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.

14 Coyote Starrk Coyote Starrk is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

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.

He lost only because he did not really want to fight.

I thought he had more potential than he showed.

15 Yoruichi Shihoin Yoruichi Shihoin is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

Yoruichi is the fastest person in the history of Soul Society. She's faster than Shinji, Yamamoto, and Aizen, who are all very fast and powerful Shunpo masters. She's the inventor of Shunko, the fusion of Kido and Hakuda, which makes her much stronger.

I actually agree with most of this list. Surprisingly, it's spot on, except I believe that Yoruichi should be somewhere in the top 10. I'm just not sure where.

I guess she is the strongest woman, so she should be the 3rd rank among the strongest people in Bleach.

16 Shinji 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.

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 all forget that Aizen is the biggest troll with the biggest HAX ability. Against 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 backward. You can't coordinate attacks, defense, timings, anything!

17 Soul King

He should be the strongest because he is the one who invented the Soul Society.

18 Jushiro Ukitake

Come on, guys. He is one of the first captains, on par with Kyoraku. He should be at least in the top 10.

19 Lille Barro
20 Isshin Kurosaki

It is said by himself that he has not used his powers for 20 years, and yet he easily blew away Aizen. Imagine if he trained a bit how strong he would be. We don't even know the full extent of his powers.

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 about his powers! I have a feeling he is so strong. Imagine when we see his Bankai.

21 Uryu Ishida Uryū Ishida is a fictional character and major figure in the anime and manga series Bleach created by Tite Kubo.

So underrated. After the Quincy arc, he practically could defeat any captain, Espada, or Sternritter. Think about it, he defeated Haschwalth, and his power practically makes him better than many of the various Shinigami. Not to mention his strategic knowledge and the fact he's really well-versed in all his weapons.

22 Gin Ichimaru Gin Ichimaru is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

Gin isn't in the top 10? He also isn't in the top 20. You have to be kidding me. How can people like Rukia and Ikkaku be above Gin? Gin Ichimaru was not only the first person who found out Aizen's true intentions, but he was also the first one to nearly kill him. Fooling a manipulator like Aizen is not something to take lightly.

Ichigo could hardly counter-attack against Gin during their duel, while Gin wasn't even using his full potential. It is true that we might never know the extent of his powers, but he was one of a kind. The legendary Gin Ichimaru.

23 Kugo Ginjo
24 Barragan Luisenbarn

Did you guys forget him? He should be, in my opinion, in the top ten. He can rot everything around him without effort!

Barragan has one of those powers that are almost unbeatable in one-on-one battles, and his reign over time, especially old age, makes him very scary.

25 Tenjiro Kirinji

Another member of the Royal Guard, I really think he's tied with Unohana. He taught her everything she knows about healing and was fast enough to surprise Soifon, the fastest person in Soul Society, excluding Yoruichi.
