What would you be in the anime Bleach

Recommended Posts

What would you be in Bleach?

Hey guys, how is everybody? So here's the thing, I was wondering if bleach was gonna ever come back and its not. If you don't know bleach, its fine I can explain it to my best ability. Bleach is about a boy named Ichigo Kurosaki. He turned into a soul reaper so he could protect his family from these monsters called Hollows. After that event, he was known as a substitute soul reaper meaning he has to fill in for another soul reaper. It goes deeper than this but its a small rundown. Through the series you learn that there are more than just soul reapers. Let me explain what a soul reaper is.

These are Hollows

68747470733a2f2f73332e616d617a6f6e6177732e636f6d2f776174747061642d6d656469612d736572766963652f53746f7279496d6167652f6f6d54487435784d612d4e436e413d3d2d3439383535383432352e31346639633738393.gif l.jpg

There are different variations of Hollows!

 Soul Reapers/Shinigami

Soul reapers/Shinigami are spirit samurais that go around killing the hollows. They protect the normal world from them using their Zanpakuto. These zanpakuto have to forms that differ from the basic katana: their Shikai and their Bankai. The shikai the first form the zanpakuto turns into like, The katana turns into spear or it can disappear. The bankai is the second form and the full power of the zanpakuto. Sometimes the blade completely changes from the shikai into something different. The most notable soul reapers are:

Abilities

 

Longevity: Shinigami do not visibly age at the same rate as Humans and tend to maintain a youthful appearance for centuries. Shinigami can live for much longer than Humans, with some Shinigami, such as Retsu Unohana, being over 1,000 years old and Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto being at least 2,100 years old.


Enhanced Durability: While Shinigami can be injured and killed like regular Humans, it takes considerably greater injuries to kill a Shinigami than it would to kill Humans. Decapitation is the only guaranteed method of killing a Shinigami.


Reiryoku: Shinigami naturally possess high levels of Spiritual Power,which varies greatly in magnitude with the strength of a Shinigami. The more power a Shinigami has, the sharper their movements will be. A consequence of having Spiritual Power is that unlike powerless spirits, Shinigami need to eat.


Reiatsu: The Reiatsu of a Shinigami will continue to flow for as long as the heart is still beating; if the heart beats, it is impossible for the Reiatsu to cease. Due to this, prisoners who cannot have their heart stopped by any executioner in Soul Society are kept in Muken.

Vizoreds

Vizoreds are just like soul reapers/shinigami but, they were experimented on by Souske Aizen. That is one way to become a Vizored. The reason Ichigo became one was by his mother being infected by a hollow (btw his mom is a quincy). Just like a soul reaper they have zanpakutos and they can use shikai and bankai with the bonus ability to use a hollow mask. They have to under go training to be able to do this though. The most notable Vizoreds are:

Abilities

 

Hollow Mask: The Hollow mask which covers the head. Unlike the masks of the Arrancar, the masks of the Visored are undamaged. The Visored remain in complete control while wearing their masks (unlike Ichigo's early unstable transformations). According to Aizen, the fusion of the two spiritual entities allows these Shinigami to reach power levels far surpassing that of either a Hollow or a Shinigami.

The Visored use their Hollow powers to augment their existing Shinigami abilities, granting them massive increases in speed, stamina, and strength.

The only known side effect in donning their Hollow masks is the specific time limit, which varies from user to user. Fortunately, there is a remedy to this problem: Training (but to what extent is currently unknown); Most of the Visored appear to have a limit of three minutes after a century of training, while Ichigo has expanded his limit from 11 seconds to several minutes in a relatively short period of time, so the factors influencing the limits of the masks are still unclear. Every time their masks are used, the Visored's voices echo as a consequence of both their normal voice and their inner Hollow's voice speaking simultaneously.

Enhanced Speed: Visored gain a great boost in their speed while Hollowfied. Kensei is able to throw a rapid amount of punches against a Gillian.
 

Enhanced Strength: The Visored have shown great strength while using their masks. Love was able to rip a Gillian class Menos in half with his bare hands after the Visored first arrived in the fake Karakura Town.
 

Cero: The Visored can fire Ceros just like the Arrancar. Though the origins of Arrancar and Visored differ, they may essentially be the same. Visored gain access to certain Hollow abilities, such as the Cero blast; However, only Shinji, Hiyori and Mashiro have been seen using it.
 

Power Augmentation: With the acquisition of the mask through the subjugation of one's inner Hollow, Visored gain access to an additional and separate source of power - aside from the Shinigami powers they already possess - Hollow powers. The accumulation of both powers greatly augments their powers beyond what a Shinigami and/or Hollow alone would be capable of. Members of the Visored drastically increase their combat abilities by donning their masks and Hollowfying. The length of time they can remain Hollowfied varies with each person.
 

Mask Protection: Body damage can seemingly be ignored while wearing their masks, as demonstrated by Ichigo's Hollow during his unwilling transformations.
 

Reiryoku Enhancement: Visored have dual spiritual power of both Shinigami and Hollow, which enhances their abilities. While watching Ichigo fight with Grimmjow, Tier Harribel noted that the volume and nature of Ichigo's spiritual power made it seem like she was watching a fight between two Espada. Additionally, Ulquiorra Cifer commented that his Reiatsu was almost exactly like an Espada's.


Espadas

Espadas are Hollows who have also been experimented on by Aizen. Through the experiments, they gained a human form while keeping the Hollow hole on a part of their body. They were Aizen's most powerful members. They have the unique ability to fuse with their zanpakuto called their Resurrección. This gives them a full body transformation. The only bad drawback is that they are stuck like this and cannot go back into their human form. There are more espada but, there are called arrancars. Arrancars are strong but, not strong enough to be called an espada. They also can use Resurrección. They also gained the ability to use Zanpakutos. The most notable Espadas are:

Abilities

 

Caja Negación (反膜の匪 (カハ・ネガシオン), kaha negashion; Spanish for "Negation Box", Japanese for "Anti-Membrane of Negation") is a variant of the Gillian-exclusive ability Negación used to punish Arrancar subordinates by trapping them eternally in an alternate dimension. However, should the Caja Negación be used on an Espada, the Espada will eventually break free (usually within a few hours), due to their large amount of Reiatsu.
 

Gran Rey Cero (王虚の閃光 (グラン・レイ・セロ), guran rei sero; Spanish for "Grand King Zero", Japanese for "Royal Hollow Flash") is a variation of the Cero technique that can be used by the Espada by mixing their own blood with the Cero. The result is a Cero with a much greater attack power which can disturb the fabric of space.[41] It is forbidden for any of the Espada to perform Gran Ray Cero within Las Noches, as it could possibly destroy most of the enormous building.

Bala (虚弾 (バラ), Bara; Spanish for "Bullet", Japanese for "Hollow Bullet"): A technique that fires hardened spiritual pressure. Less powerful than a Cero, but can be successively fired at 20 times the rate.
 

Cero (虚閃 (セロ), Sero; Spanish for "Zero", Japanese for "Hollow Flash"; "Doom Blast" in the Viz translation): A powerful spiritual light fired by Menos Grande and Arrancar.
 

Descorrer (解空(デスコレール), Desukorēru; Japanese for "Loosed Void", Spanish for "Drawing Back/Opening"): A technique used by Espada-level Arrancar, and sometimes others, to open a Garganta between the living world and Hueco Mundo.[21]
 

Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), Iero; Spanish for "Iron", Japanese for "Steel Skin"): An Arrancar's outer skin with high spiritual hardness that serves as armor.
 

High-Speed Regeneration (超速再生, Chōsoku Saisei; lit. "Ultra-Fast Regeneration") is an ability which allows Arrancar to heal most injuries very quickly, with the exception of the destruction of the head or vital organs. Ulquiorra states most Arrancar gave up this ability for far greater strength.
 

Pesquisa (探査回路 (ペスキサ), Pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry", Japanese for "Probe Circuit"): An Arrancar's ability to measure and locate Reiatsu.
 

Resurrección (帰刃 (レスレクシオン), Resurekushion; Spanish for "Resurrection", Japanese for "Returning Blade"): Releasing the core of an Arrancar's ability sealed in their Zanpakutō to regain the original powers of their Hollow form. They often take on a form closer to a Hollow than a Human after performing Resurrección.
 

Sonído (響転 (ソニード), Sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound", Japanese for "Sound Ceremony"): The Arrancar equivalent to a Shinigami's Shunpo.
Espada Equipment


Quincies

Quincies are the spirit archers and can kill hollows using bows made up of energy. They go around in their physical body hunting hollows and killing them. Quincies for some reason don't get along with Shinigami and will try to kill them. This goes vice-versa for some reason, I just don't know though. Quincies can sacrifice their ability to use spirit energy to use all of ther strength. They can relearn how to use that energy but with the assistance of spiritual items. Quincies are apparently related to 'King' Yhwach (<-- Do not ask me how to say that name!). The most notable Quincies are:

Techniques & Items

 

Ransōtengai: A high-level technique that allows the user to control their body parts using strings of Reiryoku controlled by their brain, forming lines or strings out of Reishi. By using this technique, the user can control their body as one would a puppet, allowing them to move freely despite paralysis, broken limbs, or any other force that would impede normal movement. It was originally created to allow elderly Quincy to fight effectively, and is rare enough that Mayuri had never encountered a Quincy (out of the 2661 that he examined or studied) who could use it before Uryū. Mayuri stated it as "the most powerful technique for the Quincy," but he did not know of the Quincy: Letzt Stil, which means as far as Mayuri knew it was the strongest.
 

Quincy: Letzt Stil: The last resort for a Quincy reached after removing the Sanrei Glove. It gives the user a tremendous amount of power, but at the price of loss of their powers upon its completion.
 

Quincy: Vollständig: A part of Quincy evolution and the answer to the drawbacks of the outdated Quincy: Letzt Stil. It is the easiest ability to understand because a practitioner's appearance and power change drastically.
 

Kirchenlied: Sankt Zwinger: A powerful Quincy spell that creates an area of Reishi shaped with countless Quincy crosses protruding from the ground: Though its effects remain unseen, Royd Lloyd described it as "the spell of maximum protection among the Quincy techniques of offense and defense" and stated the "light of the lord" will "strike dead" anything which comes within its limits.

 

Quincy Cross (滅却十字 (クインシー・クロス), Kuinshī Kurosu; Japanese for "Destruction Cross"): A cross in the shape of the Quincy symbol that only those who have inherited Quincy abilities and techniques are allowed to possess. Standard equipment for any Quincy, the Quincy Cross acts as the focus for a Quincy bow, known as a Heilig Bogen. The cross need not necessarily be in a cross shape, as Ryūken's cross is a pentacle. Uryū's first Quincy Cross took the shape of a cross, but his recent one also takes the shape of a pentacle.

 

Sanrei Glove: This is a powerful Quincy artifact that can increase a Quincy's power exponentially, but requires a dangerous and exhausting type of resistance training by wearing it for a week while constantly firing spiritual arrows to master. The glove works by scattering the Reishi in the surrounding area, making it much harder to form a working bow.
 

Gintō: Gintō are small liquid-filled capsules that store Reiryoku, and are used by the Quincy for spell casting in the same way that Shinigami use Kidō. Like Kidō, they are activated by calling out various commands.

Seele Schneider: The Seele Schneider is a thin sword that can be fired similarly to an arrow. It's much longer than a standard arrow and functions something like a chainsaw: the Reishi of its blade vibrate at ultra-high frequencies, loosening the molecular bonds between any spirit matter it cuts so that the Quincy user may easily absorb the freed spirit particles. Uryū also stated that using it increased his spiritual power. The Seele Schneiders Uryū uses are stolen from a secret storage room under Karakura hospital.
 

Quincy Bangle (装身具, Sōshingu; lit. "Body-Dressing Element"): The Quincy Bangle is an artifact designed to mimic a Quincy's natural powers. It works by drawing in Reishi from the environment, much like a Quincy does regularly. It can only be used properly by those who are already adept at forming and directing Reishi.
 

Hollow Bait: This item is a small, coin-shaped disk that attracts Hollows when crushed. When used by Uryū, the bait, in combination with Ichigo's powerful Reiatsu, was able to draw a Gillian-class Menos out of Hueco Mundo.
 

Soul-made Silver (霊化銀, Reika Gin): Soul-synthesized silver was used by Ryūken Ishida to construct the hidden chamber in which Uryū trains.
 

Soul-made Glass (霊化硝子, Reika Garasu): Like soul-synthesized silver, soul-synthesized glass was used to construct the hidden chamber in the Karakura Hospital.
 

Reishi Heisō (霊子兵装, Spirit Particle War-Garb; Viz "Spirit Armor"): Armor which Ryūken temporarily wore when preparing to save Masaki. While the full set has not been seen, it includes a large bow and a staff hung across the wearer's back with a chain.

 

 

Fullbringers

 

Fullbringers are spiritually aware humans with the natural ability to channel their spiritual energy through objects or their bodies. Doing this allows them to harm spiritual beings and have a defence toward them. Fullbring can do things like create a barrier, heal, or harden their body. They also can see spiritual beings. Fullbrinbgs can get a boost in Hueco Mundo if thier ability is akin to a hollow ability. Chad was one character this happened to. Fulbrings ability take the form of everyday items i.e: Hair clips or a handheld device. The most notable Fullbringers are:

Abilities

 

 

High-Speed Movement: Fullbringers can induce states of high-speed movement through Fullbring. Such movements are accompanied by the flickering of a green luminescence called Bringer Light (完現光 (ブリンガーライト), Buringā Raito; Japanese for "Full Manifestation Light"), which is the preliminary for each high-speed movement. This speed is achieved through a variety of different uses of Fullbring. By pulling on the soul of the ground beneath their feet, Fullbringers can increase its elasticity, greatly enhancing their jumping ability as a result. In addition, by Fullbringing the air around them, they can accelerate their movements. Doing so can consequentially strengthen the force of their blows. The ability to use this technique signifies that one is beginning to master Fullbring.

Object Affinity: By developing an affinity for a particular object, a Fullbringer can alter its form, granting powers that vary greatly among individuals. This affinity can be defined by one’s love for the object in question, or simply by an overall fondness for it. As such, this power is usually awakened through a strong emotion associated with the object, such as pride. Using this affinity, Fullbringers pull out the object’s soul and boost it with their own, transforming it in the process. For example, Kūgo Ginjō can change the saltire pendant on his necklace into a large claymore. While Fullbringers typically have an affinity with one such object, it is possible to have many. While all Fullbrings are unique, they can be defined by different types. For example, Fullbrings that shroud their users with their power are called Clad-Type (装衣型 (クラッドタイプ), Kuraddotaipu; Japanese for "Raiment-Type") Fullbrings.

Once a Fullbringer has fully realized this power, its abilities cannot and do not change through growth. However, Fullbringers must progress to a certain level before they can use their unique abilities to their fullest. As such, a Fullbring's various developmental stages can look radically different from its final form, and can thus be considered “incomplete.” When the Fullbring's potential is fully realized and it progresses to its final form, it releases a violent burst of energy that can potentially damage its user’s body. Because of this, another Fullbringer is typically required to oversee the process, and to prevent the recently completed Fullbring from injuring its user by suppressing the explosion. In addition, a Fullbring's growth can be promoted by exposure to the atmosphere of Hueco Mundo, as a result of its Hollow nature.

A Fullbring's unique power largely depends on the object that is used as a focus. In addition to souls, material objects also possess memories. As its holder experiences various events, the object experiences them as well; the memories are engraved onto its soul each time it is touched. Because of this, Fullbringers who had a considerable amount of battle experience prior to awakening their power have stronger Fullbrings.

Power Transference: Fullbring is a product of Hollow power, meaning that it is essentially the opposite of its Human wielders. Because of this, it is possible for Fullbringers to transfer their abilities to individuals whom possess the powers of both Shinigami and Humans – namely Substitute Shinigami. By doing so, Fullbringers can rid themselves of their power, effectively becoming ordinary Humans. In addition to Substitute Shinigami, Fullbringers can trade and share their abilities among themselves. When doing so, they can establish certain boundaries as to how their powers can affect one another, posing voluntary limitations. Finally, it is also possible for a Fullbringer to steal the Fullbring of another individual, allowing it to be used to one’s own benefit.

Sometimes He Will Show Compassion Just to Rip It Away From Those He Gave It to. If He Doesn't Rip the Happiness From You, He Will Feel a Sense of Longing to Either Hurt or Serve You. Sometimes Both. Mistaking His Inability to Rip Said Happiness From You as 'love'

Bio/personality: He Is a Bit of a Wise Ass but Generally Quiet and Doesn't Listen to Others. Not Playing Well With Others, He Prefers to Stick to His Experiments. Doing So He Only Goes Out When It Is Needed. Mako Has Developed a Strong Desire to Become Immortal and Has Lived for a Long Time. Eating Spirits and Shinigami and Using His Mako Dolls and Experiments to Give Him Longevity. He Has Been Followed Before and Is Wanted Throughout the Soul Society for What He Has Done. 

Mako Enjoys the Sweet Sounds of Silence and the Noiser Things Get, the More Agitated He Becomes. His Paper Dolls Suffer This Wrath of His. If They So Much as to Scrap the Walls or Flicker in the Wind He Is Prone to Tear Them.

Fullbring: (Mako Making) a Deck of Blank Tarot Cards That Turns Into Mako Mako Dolls. Completely White Paper Cut Out Dolls With a Blank Front and a Purple and Gold Backing.

Abilities: Mako Mako Dolls Absorb Reishi Much Like a Quincy Does After Some Time the Dolls Can Transforms Into a Plethora of Weapons Made of Paper Strengthened by the Reishi They Had Absorbed. Each Block and Attack Takes the Reishi That Doll Has Consumed. Turning It to Paper When It Has Run Out. With That in Mind, a Couple of Abilities Is Produced From This Technique.

Mako Decoy: the Doll Pumps Out Twisted Reiatsu by Using Reishi to Mimic It. 

Mako Macabre: This Is a Dome of Highly Concentrated Spiritual Pressure Strong Enough That It Physically Can Be Heard as Shearing Metal.

Mako Mako Puppet: a Powerful Combination of Many Fully Charged Mako Mako Dolls.

Mako Mako Creation: Many Fully Charged Reishi Mako Dolls Form Together Creating a Weapon of His Choice.

Lord Cadence: This Is an Energy That Only Mako Himself Can Produce With the Reishi of a Mako Mako Doll. He Infuses Infected Twisted Souls With the Reishi, Which He Obtains Be the Souls He Has Captured From Others. This Twisted Energy Turns to Lord Cadence and Projects a Powerful Beam That Twists Spiritual Energy. Turning the Environments Reishi Hostile and Volatile. By Creating a Wall of Dolls He Can Funnel This Energy Blast.

Twisted Reiatsu: Another Thing Created by Mako. It Is a Energy That When a Person Is Infected With It Memories Cease to Form. As Long as You Are With in the Twisted Reiatsu You Won't Be Able to Create Memories Based on What Happened. That or It Will Be Extremely Hazy. 

Hope You Like It!

Give me any universe where I can be a bad ass and you can sign me right up! No questions asked!

What are you going to be?

 

 

This is my Bleach Character!

Name: Kaito Takahashi

Age: 17

Class: Vizored

Mask Appearance: His vizored mask looks like the fox mask. The mask is white with three green stripes going horizontally across the mask. The first is on the chin, the second one is under the nose, and the third one is across the eyes. instead of the watery sound you hear with the hollow mask, Kaito's mask sounds like it roars when he speaks.

Cero color: White

Bio/Appearance: Kaito is a 5'11 tall, has midnight blue hair that goes a bit past his shoulders, he has amber eyes and a brown skin tone. His appearance sometimes scare or intimidate people. He uses this to get the information he needs. When is helped, he will try to repay you back. Kaito despises manipulation because of what happened to him in the soul society. He has one big scar that spirals from his right pectoral all the way down his right arm. Kaito received this scar when he was trying to flee from the soul society. On his way out, Aizen told everyone that he tried to kill him. When he was halfway to the exit, he was intercepted by Byakuya. He barely managed to escape but, not without receiving that lethal wound. Kaito escaped to the human world before the other Vizoreds did and roamed around with no place to stay. He passed out due blood loss but was found by Kisuke and taken in. He woke up after a few days. He was thankful and wants to repay him.

Zanpakuto: Kaito has a zanpakuto. Ha has the ability to use both shikai and bankai. His zanpakuto looks like a young adult woman wearing a Kimono. She has silver hair with teal colored eyes. When she is summoned, she has her hands in front of her. She is very fond of her master and will let no harm come towards him.

Shikai: He activates is shikai by saying: “Ride the storm, Arashihime!” This allows him to pull out rods of reishi  or turns his zanpakuto into a rod that can create mini storms where they are placed or thrown. He has six techniques:

Lightning storm: The rod or reishi rod gets volatile, erupting into a lightning storm tossing lightning bolts from where the rod is.

Wind storm: The rod or reishi rod releases the compressed pressure, creating twisters, cyclones and, tornadoes where the rod is.

Fire storm:  The rod or reishi rod heats up, bursting into flame. Igniting everything or bringing them to a melting in a dome where the rod is

Explosive storm: The rod or reishi rod combines both fire and wind to cause chain explosions in a dome in the area of the rod.

Cero storm: Kaito infuses his cero into the rod or reishi rod. This makes the rods turn into expanding cero spheres on top of the rod.

Cero spire:  Kaito infuses his cero into the rod or reishi rod. This makes the rods turn into spires made of Cero in the rod's location

Bankai: The name of his bankai is Yuruyuru Arashihime. When he activates his bankai, His zanpakuto turns into a gunbai. Kaito no longer needs to make reishi rods. The gunbai makes the storms with added mobility.
