    How strong is Yoruichi?

    I ask this because we have not seen much of yoruichi herself,i actually had hope that she would recive some sort of praise from aizen...but unfortunately not...well she doesnt really have anything that would grab his attention.

    Kubo still has yet to reveal her Shikai and bankai,cause we still have two more arcs for bleach.

    Re: How strong is Yoruichi?

    I don't think yoruichi will show a shikai or bankai in the traditional sense. I do think the reason for her not having a zampakuto will be revealed though. Either she somehow lost it or she does not use it due to it being incompatible with her fighting stile.

    I don't think her strength is all that special when compared to other captains though. Don't get me wrong, I do think she is strong but not to the point where she'd have an easy victory over other captains by speedblitsing them.

    *sigh*... i just dont like how people critsize her for just using hand to hand combat.

    And mabye her shikai and bankai are just to difficult to use? that may be another explanation as to why she doesnt use it,and prefers using her hand to hand skills....? I'm a bit disapointed that kubo hasnt revealed her shikai nor he bankai to us,i want to see more of yoruichi then just shunko and smashy smashy.

    How did I criticize yoruichi for using hand to hand combat? I never did such a thing.

    the surprised acknowledgement Aizen gave her when she first arrived and smashed him into the ground seemed to have some respect or at least recognition of being formidable.

    Re: How strong is Yoruichi?

    I think Kubo hasn't given Yoruichi the opportunity to actually show what she's made of. The few times we've seen her in action have shown, at least to me, that she has the potential to be a powerhouse.

    She's one of the most accomplished hand-to hand combatants. Considered to be the most proficient Hohō master. Has Shunko which can do a big deal of damage. Has made her own technique such as Utsusemi: Way of Onmitsu, 3rd of the Shihou; which can be very useful in getting the upper hand on an opponent.

    We still have much to see from her as well, like: Shikai, Bankai, and the rest of her Utsusemi techniques.

    I have high hopes that Kubo will give her a fight in the future where she can demonstrate how powerful she really is (as in a one-on-one).

    If I were to compare her to the captains I would put Yoruichi above most with the exception of Ukitake, Shunsui, and Unohana.

    Re: How strong is Yoruichi?

    I think one way to look at her is that it is guaranteed she is strong. We've seen her go toe to toe with people without using her shikai/bankai. You figure we barely know anything about her other than she is fast and is great at hand to hand combat and yet she has still held her own.

    I hope that the day we see her shikai we will all sh*t our pants in awe. If its not impressive then I will be quite sad. I also hope that Kubo doesn't make up some sort of reason for why she can't ever use one? The only exception is if he makes up a reason for why she hasn't used it yet and we find it out right before she goes to use it.

    Another thing is that I recall the only time we have ever seen her with a blade is in one of the filler movies when she and soifon are attacking hollows. At that moment she pulls out a small dagger. For all we know that could actually be her zanpaktou or just a tool she was using for the time being.

    Yess,we have not seen much of her....hopefully kubo will just give her one more epic fight,Annd seemed a bit long lasting while she was fighting aizen,even managed to sneak up behind him,making him struggle for a few moments....I dont think the Soul Society would of lasted as long as they did without those vizards appearing to their aid. she was much of a challenge though. Almost a pity that she couldnt take it all the way.

    She does have a zanpaktuo and has already acheived bankai,it explains it in the turn back pendulum.

    I do know this, lol. I'm saying that if Kubo made up a reason for her no longer having one or a reason for why she can't have one right now because her use of it may be obstructed by something. She did escape with Urahara so there could be some sort of complications to her zanpaktou usage that we don't know about and Kubo could make up to account for her lack of using it. That is what I meant.

    Right, you especially figure when you're in a life/death situation such as.....FIGHTING AIZEN, that you would want to at least use your shikai. Yes she performed admirably, but it seems a bit odd that she would only use Urahara's special boxing gloves and foot wear . Thats why I'm hoping that Kubo at least gives us some sort of reason for her lack of usage when the time comes for her to unveil her shikai to us. I just want it to be more than her just having a preference for fighting hand to hand with shunko instead of with a blade.

    The only explaination i can come up with is that,its very difficult to use,or mabye her shunko and hand to hand abilites are stonger then her shikai and bankai...

    or mabye she lost it in the SS,i hope she would not be so mindless as to leave it there...

    Re: How strong is Yoruichi?

    i think aizen already praised her enough for not losing her leg or arm after 1 blow
    it may sound insignificant but in reality its a feat that none other than yoruichi+ kenpachi +yamamoto level powerhouse captains can do .

    Re: How strong is Yoruichi?

    nice thread, and yes, yoruichi is a for sure powerhouse. i think she outclasses every captain under the four seniors, and im sure she can hadle most espada using only what she has shown.

    she has enourmous pshysical strength
    http://beta.onemanga.com/Bleach/403/16/ the bottom panel on this page shows a huge cloud, a city block wide, of concrete flying several stories in the air. all from her punching aizen into the ground with a barrage of punches.
    http://beta.onemanga.com/Bleach/405/11/ this punch is creating a sonic boom.

    everyone knows how fast she is, no debate there.

    i think shunkou is equivalent to any bankai,
    http://beta.onemanga.com/Bleach/405/12/ just a spark blew right through hougzens gaurd.
    and i cant wait to see her do this again http://beta.onemanga.com/Bleach/158/19-20/ an enourmous shunkou blast.
    http://beta.onemanga.com/Bleach/159/01/ and heres the damage from it
