    Confused Why couldn't Yamamoto kill the Enemy Leader 1,000 years ago?

    Why did captain Yamamoto fail to kill that Quincy 1000 years ago and how did that Quincy survive for such a long time?

    First of all, welcome to MH, Espiro~

    We can't say anything certainly, but to me, it sounded like Yamamoto couldn't bring himself to kill him. Thus I could see a former Teacher/Student relationship, or family relationship, or just friendship -> the VR King then betrayed shinigami/Yama, but Yamamoto failed to stop him.
    Something like 3rd Hokage/Orochimaru, possibly.

    The other question, we don't know yet, or he's partly shinigami.

    Welcome here! I think he didn't want to kill him because they were friends. that's the best thing that comes to my mind

    I get the mild impression there might be some drama involved here. Perhaps he couldn't get himself to do it? I guess it is possible the guy was that strong (if anything, he should be that strong) however considering the lengths yama is willing to go to to get the job done I find it hard to believe he would fail to take him with him if necessary.

    maybe its more like Isshin and Ryuken relationship they are good friends(because they are both doctors) and also rivals(because of the hospital and clinic)

    I doubt his failure had anything to do with sympathy, Yamamotto doesn't seem like the type to put those feelings ahead of duty especially since he's willing to authorize the murder of 28,000 defenseless human souls. Buckbeard must have been able to hold his own and got away, waiting for the perfect time to strike back.

    I don't think there would be any reason for Yamamoto to feel remorse if he did his best but still failed to kill him. It seems more like a wrong decision from his part, he probably had the opportunity to kill him but for some reason let him run away.

    or maybe they fought to rule over Soul SOciety,and yama won but not with a great difference of power,so he "failed" in killing that man because he wasn't strong enough to end the job.

    i doubt he would fail killing someone because of personal feelings , he didnt hesitate to attack ukitake and shunsui in the rescue arc when he thought they betrayed him

    or maybe he didnt hesitate because he didnt want to make the same mistake he did in the past ??

    yeah,because he became wiser after 1000 years,therefore he started thinking that he failed not killing him 1000 years ago. who knows,people change during millenia.

    Yeah, but we could assume he was "young" 1 000 years ago, still valuing emotions. Maybe the reason why he had become so cold (prior to Ichi, seems like he's changing again) is because he failed before, only because of emotions..

    Maybe he spared his life, maybe the quincy scaped, maybe the quincy was too strong to kill and yamamoto retreated.

    Who knows

    Mayuri sounded like he was blaming Yama not killing him, when he has the capacity to do it. There could be many reasons, Having a connection or bond between the two is one of the most obvious right now.

    right.I doubt mayuri would blame on yamamoto if he had been just unable to kill him. it can't be an issue of strength,but of bonds. otherwise yamamoto would kill him quickly .

    btw,LOL, you edited the post of your comaptriot to correct grammar mistakes

    I am quite specific about OPs, being a compatriot wasn't gonna warrant him any different treatment |toc
