The Aizen’s War arc was one of the best arc in Bleach. The depth of the characters, especially the villains, were mind-boggling. We were introduced to the Espada who are supposed to be the most powerful Arrancar out there.
So, in this post I’ll talk about the most powerful Arrancar in Bleach, and whether they die in the end?.
With this let’s Goo…
(11) Tier Harribel
If there’s someone who got the worst treatment even for a Villain is Tier Harribel. She was honest to mission and always had a sacrificial attitude. She was powerful for sure, but nowhere close to other Espada like Nnoitra.
Though she didn’t die, but her future was going to be cruel!
(10) Szayelaporro Granz
Szayelaporro was weaker than other Arrancar and also the Espada, but he fell into Mayuri’s category. He was a genius scientist and also insanely quick. Other than that he was just a simple Arrancar with sadistic personality.
He liked to watch people suffer!
(9) Aaroniero Arruruerie
Aaroniero is powerful, no doubt, but he also has a BIG weakness. He cannot tolerate sunlight and also if his tank is punctured it’s over for him! To balance his weakness his offence is pretty terrifying!
Especially his Zanpakuto. It can devour anyone and after the process if complete everything about the devoured person is transferred to Aaroniero…
(8) Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez
Grimmjow is the very few Arrancar who is loves for his “bad boy” attitude. He was the first Espada among all to attack Ichigo and severely wound him. He is also the very few among them who survived and also went on to play huge roles in the future.
He outspoken personality almost landed him to death. If Orihime wasn’t available in the right moment, he would have lost his arm…
(7) Zommari Rureaux
Zommari Rureaux has a HUGE “hate-base.” Yeah, we are not talking about “fan-base.” The sheer among of hate this guy gets is astonishing. And it’s because of his broken and sadistic personality. But, when we talk about his powers, no doubt it’s complicated.
Zommari can overpower anyone with his intelligence, and that’s why Byakuya was the best opponent to beat him. I don’t what would have happened if it was Kenpachi who only knows to hack and slash…
(6) Nnoitra Gilga
Nnoitra is one of the most hated Arrancar and arguably also the most hated character in Bleach. But keeping everything, he really is powerful. Even Zaraki Kenpachi was struggling to keep up with him when the two went head-to-head.
Yet, he lacked one thing that the other, more stronger Arrancar had under their command. It was “control” over his urges. He wanted to become the strongest among all and that uncontrollable compulsion led him to his death.
As cute as Nel’s kid form is, she is also insanely powerful when she attains her adult form. Her first battle in the series was against Nnoitra, and she really pushed him to the corner.
At present she has lost the same powers as she had years ago, yet she was powerful enough to become this powerful. Alas! we couldn’t see how powerful she was in her peak days. It’s safe to say that she was powerful enough to be the second strongest, if not the strongest!
Wonderweiss was the most useless Arrancar in Bleach. The only he had was strength and power. He was created to only be a killing machine. And that’s what he did in the war against Aizen as well!
He almost killed Ukitake within the blink of an eye!
(3) Yammy Llargo
If there’s one Arrancar who is the most hated, and also deserves the hate is Yammy Llargo. On top of being insanely powerful, he is also naggy and bothersome. He is the No.0 Espada and that makes him one of the most powerful among all.
Yammy seems to have bottomless spiritual powers. The more injured he is, the more powerful and dangerous he becomes…
(2) Coyote Starrk
Coyote Starrk is way more powerful most Soul Hunters, let alone the other Arrancar. In fact he spiritual pressure was so powerful that nobody was able to come close to him. The reason? They would simply die!
If we keep his powers aside, Starrk is one of the rare Arrancar who had human-like tendencies. That means he had an urge to lead a normal life, just like the humans. Unfortunately Aizen only used him to achieve his goals.
(1) Ulquiorra Cifer
Ulquiorra Cifer is the strongest Arrancar in Bleach. Even though he has lower ranking than other Espada, his power and ability to think pretty close to a Human is what sets him apart.
I would say that he has quite a lot of similarities with Coyote Starrk. Both of them has emotions, both of them had a rough past. It might seem a bit peculiar but I felt a little bad when Ulquiorra died. He deserved a bit more I guess!
Conclusion & FAQ
In conclusion, Bleach has a variety of Arrancars. Though most of them are powerful, these 11 are on a completely different level. Especially Ulquiorra.
Ulquiorra Cifer is the strongest Arrancar in Bleach. He is also an Espada.
