A Vasto Lorde is considering to be the most powerful Hollow in existence. And Vasto Lorde as an arrancar is likely the most ultimate yet fearsome being to bout.
The question is: how will our heroes handle one of those über-beings and how will it affect the story? Let us hear you peoples' opinion!
Modified the title to cover a little bit broader topic since the thread was digressing slightly, but not enough to merit a new thread. ~ WL
It is believed that Ulquiorra is one. At this point I think he would kill pretty much anyone expect perhaps the strongest the Vaizards or Shinigami have to offer. Meaning, I think he'd be able to kill everyone except the top 3 or 4 captains, including Urahara, and Shinji from the Vaizards.
He commented that Ichigo was stronger than him when his power was fluctuating. I assume that is the power we'll see once Ichigo can master his Hollow. At that point those two should fight, since Ulquiorra loves to keep taunting him.
Hmmm... but I think Ulquiorra is an Adjuchas, since he rarely fights and mostly uses his intelligence in combat.
I believe when Hitsugaya talked about the different classes of hollows, that Ulquiorra's shadowed image was the one he used for a Vasto Lorde. He may rarely fight, but that is because no one has actually forced him to fight. From what we've seen and heard from him, it's likely that he'd kill the majority of people 1on1. He said he couldn't take Yoruichi and Urahara on at the same time, but I'm sure he can take Yoruichi on by himself and perhaps even Urahara as well.
I think we'll discover that several of the other current Espada are of similar class as well, and that's not including what other ones Aizen adds later.
I wonder if Grimmjaw is a Vasto Lorde? If not, then he shouldn't mess around with Ulquiorra (if he were a Vasto Lorde) otherwise.
Well, it could go either way. Tousen could've kicked his ass because he was a former Ajuuca, or because he's stronger than a Vastorode-based Arrancar now. In either case, I'm assuming that Tousen and Gin are just as powerful, if not more-so, than the lower half of the Espada--and I don't even want to talk about Aizen.Originally Posted by Krillos
But yeah, Kubotite's been pretty ambiguous about what types of Hollows most of the Espada were before hybridization, so I can't really say for sure...but I think that he was an Ajuuca, and Ulquiorra was a Vastorode. So I agree--Grimmjow should NOT be messing with him, especially since he seems to be Aizen's favorite.
vasto lorde = espada?
He actually said something like "What a foolish taunt! If the two of you try to fight me while trying to protect that trash(ichigo) at the same time... It is fairly obvious who would have the upper hand!" That sounds more like he could take them both, but like he said on the next page: his mission is complete, "ichigo is nothing more than a piece of trash unworthy of Aizen's attention".Originally Posted by ryderdm3
I doubt Tousen would chop of the arm of a vastorode-based arrancar, not because he couildn't, but because they are so few in numbers and they will surely need as many of them as possible in the upcoming war.
And sengpoi: Vastorode = the highest form of menos. Espada = the ten strongest arrancar. We really don't know how many of the espada(if any) are vastorode based.
Wasn't it also said that there weren't that many vastrode too so I'm assuming Aizen doesn't have any on his side.
There aren't many so it's unlikely that Aizen will have a whole army of them, rather just the few that he is able to recruit.
nillut - He does say that, but on the page before that he says "These two are far beyond our level. At this rate we'll lose.... ....unless we retreat". You are right though, it's probably unlikely that they Urahara and Yoruichi could fight Ulquiorra and protect all their friends at the same time. However, if they weren't in that situation, there is no doubt in my mind that Ulquiorra wouldn't have won.
I gotta agree, when you have to protect someone you end up leaving yourself open to attack when you move to protect that person and you also are limited in the moves you can make as well.Originally Posted by ryderdm3
I don't think we have seen any vastoroode yet, expect maybe for ulquiorra.
Well aren't all the espada "vasteo lorde". I thought this was already known.
I dont think we have seen any of the Vasto Lorde either , I dont think we have because from what Hitsugaya said , A single Vasto Lorde is significantly stronger then then anyone Captain Level Shinigami , 10 of them being enough to conquer all of soul society. Being turned into an Arrancar should add power not take away , especially for a vasto lorde considering that being turned into an arrancar really does change them physically a whole lot other then giving them a zanpakuto. And I just dont think that any of the Espada have shown that level of power yet. If any of them I would have to say either Ulquiorra , or/and Grimmjaw.
No one of the espada is a vastrorode...but i wish Grimmjaw was one of them cause he is one of my favorite villains!!!But i consider ichigo's hollow to be a vastrorode 4 sure!!!
