    Tsukishima's power is too haxxed, he can make a weak opponent such as giriko his ally,and can force him to betray the others. Tsukishima's team wins unless Driscoll has got the medallion to steal rose's bankai and then one-shot him. Has he got the medallion with him?

    Unless you are Mayuri and know you have to replace all of your internal organs, Szayel will f**k you up. He is the only one in his team who can remove Tsukishima out of the equation before getting cut by him. And when the biggest threat of Tsukishima's Fullbring is gone, Driscoll and Giriko can easily finish the job; Driscoll shouldn't have much trouble with Rose, and Giriko... Mmm, okay, he still might have trouble dealing with her Kido. Nonetheless, Team 3 wins.

    Re: Bleach Tournament Round 2: Team 3 vs Team 4

    Team 4 takes it.

    Driscoll only showed us that he's much better than a VC, which is hardly impressive for what should be the strongest member on the team. In addition, he never showed Volstandig or any special abilities he could use in battle. Giriko, while hax in theory, really has no feats to back up the idea that he's anything other than trash. That really just leaves Szayel. Hax abilities, sure, but his backup is either unquantifiable or bad. Not good odds.

    Rose, Tsukishima, and Hinamori, by comparison, all have a decent amount of good feats. Rose has yet to show Bankai, but the fact that he has a mask makes up for that to a degree. Having a long-range Shikai doesn't hurt either. Tsukishima has an absurdly hax power and was shown to have very good base stats to begin with. Hinamori, while on the weak end, still has a good mastery of Kido, and could make a difference in a lot of areas.

    Team 4 is just really well balanced I'd say, and they take this one.

    Re: Bleach Tournament Round 2: Team 3 vs Team 4

    Driscoll may have crappy, offensive feats, but he does have blut vene, which is a powerful defense. Quilge's, despite being unable to do anything, held up against a bankai. Without any bankais in this fight, Driscoll's defense should hold up very well. Szaeyel too has hiero which easily blocked Renji's shikai. That plus a devastating resureccion. Problem is the mechanics of Giriko's ability is so unclear, that we can't really expect him to do anything for certain, so he is almost a non factor.

    Team 4 doesnt have much offensive power over 3 IMO, but they do have lots of tactical options, plus the benefit of having a very useful weak link in Momo, as opposed to a useless Giriko. Heck, the most use he can be is letting Driscoll kill him for a boost in power.

    Can Tsuki's blade cute through hierro or blut vene? Will Rose's shikai explosions do much damage through these defenses? Could Szaeyel find the opening he needs when its basically three on two? so many questions. I like this match up.

    Re: Bleach Tournament Round 2: Team 3 vs Team 4

    I think that it's a lot less close than people make out. Driscoll managed to easily overpower Hisagi, but he gets stronger with each kill and had already killed over 100 shinigami in that short period he was there. The Strength we saw of Driscoll was him after killing 100 Shinigami, and even Chad could be number 3-ranked Shinigami in the SS Arc. Szayel's power is haxed, but his best defensive prowess is standing up to Renji's Shikai. Not a captain's Shikai, not Renji's Bankai. I wouldn't say his defences are anywhere near strong enough to survive Rose or even avoid being cut by Tsukishima. Giriko, while theoretically being unbeatable, has shown anything but the power he could have. He gets OHKO'd by the likes of Momo and her Kido.

    In Contrast, Rose is a captain who admittedly hasn't shown much, but his classification as a captain after the re-integration of the Visored says a lot - Love wasn't given Captain Status, and in fact the only Visored that were were Kensei and Shinji, both shown to be strong. His mask gives him the power of Bankai, and while it doesn't last long can be used to devestating effect for a short time.
    Tsukishima is so overpowered - he can cut the floor to create traps, and a quick cut on Ginjo allows him to act as a distraction. Were Szayel to come at him, or Driscoll, all he has to do is swing his sword and he gains full knowledge of their abilities. Momo is weak, but can at least do some effective Kido to support.

    Szayel's moves aren't particularly team-friendly, and Ginjo is as good as useless. They'll be fighting as individuals, whereas if Rose were to go all-out at the beginning, with Momo supporting with Kido, Tsukishima can easily use the distraction to cut them. Then it's game over.

    Re: Bleach Tournament Round 2: Team 3 vs Team 4

    Szaeyel's cloning liquid is pretty team friendly. Though they are sensitive to powerful reiatsu, Momo and Tsuki hardly fit in that category, so only Rose could theoretically "pop" his clones, we don't know that for sure (when considering Rose can't use his bankai, otherwise it would be pretty certain he could). Nor do we know how well Tsuki's blade would do against Driscoll in particular. No reason to think it can cut IMO. But even Uryu, who is pretty fast, was caught by Szaeyel.

    As for Driscoll, we are probably going by the strength he had at his death, so the fact he had to kill a lot of grunts to get there is irrelevant.

    Rose, Shinji, and Kensei were given their status because those seats were the only one open.... SS isn't gonna say "F* you Koma, were gonna replace you"

    As far as Visored masks go, none of the captains other than Ken and Yama beat anybody in the VR, so saying that Rose's mask will make his victory over Driscoll certain is a big stretch.

    Admittedly, I didn't think about Driscoll as he was. However, Driscoll seems to be more attacking-minded, and would probably use his Blut for attack more than defence.

    Rise, even though the seat was open, was still deemed a captain-class. Others could have taken over instead, but Yama chose the 3 Visored. And the fact he was a captain in the past, pre-hollow, shows how strong he should be.

    None of the captains won, but some of them lost. Byakuya most notably. Rose didn't - he didn't use his Bankai, and was still fighting one of the VR.
    A captain vs a VR is an interesting fight, but with Tsukishima supporting him (who, as for Szayel, could cut the floor and add in in a secret wall to protect him) and Momo serving as an excellent distraction, I'd have to say they win this...

    Close match, I could see it going either way. Szayel and Tsukishima are "X-Factors". I tend to believe Tsukishima will get a blow in before Szayel gains any extensive knowledge on him or any of his teammates. It's tough say just from a match-up perspective.

    Idk, if it was based upon replacing the three seats with the most powerful people, why wasn't Ishinn remade a captain? IMO, it was just because they were the previous captains of those divisions.

    Well, did anyone lose aside from Byakuya? Possibly Koma could have been said to have "lost" but then reinvigorated by Yama's fury, however both he and Byakuya were both facing their own bankai, while none of the visored were, so they had an advantage, or rather, a lack of disadvantage.

    I still see the cloning liquid as a big factor for tsuki and momo to deal with, though the mask will probably help Rose overcome them. Still leaning towards team 4 since team 3 is effectively a man down, and potentially a liability, but still think team 3 has got a good shot.
