No. It just happens that more people are right this time.
If he can cut off a building with just one cut on a whim, I'm sure he can destroy cities if he puts an effort.
He has a potential to be as strong as them. Ichigo was pretty strong AND fast.
When people talk about Kenpachi, the fanfic novel doesn't have anything to do with it.
That's a very simple, but also delicate plot development.
If you say he is so dumb that he enjoys a battle while taking hits, I'll agree, though.
And who would counter Tousen's Bankai and how? Area based attacks would probably work. What else? Surely not having that kind of an attack will degrade someone in terms of overall power.

It would be great if he was the one that confronted As Nodt. Even Byakuya had his share of fear, but I doubt Kenpachi would show us a hint of that.

I'm sorry,but I simply disagree with you here.Tousen's Bankai IS special,by your words one may understand that Tousen's Bankai was not a big deal,it just removed senses,every captain/vc can take care of it,no problem.Fact is,Kenpachi defeated Tousen with a Bankai,do you think Renji or Ikkaku or any other VC would have had the speed of reaction like Kenpachi had? IMO no.Originally Posted by Torran
There is no need to get upset/heated,as it is just a simple discussion.However,Byakuya is indeed much useful than Kenpachi,yes that is true,but fact is Byakuya couldn't handle one single SR whereas Kenpachi took down 3 of them.That is the fact.And what do you mean that none of them used their abilities productively?Kenpachi explained that each of them used their special abilities(like As Nodt used his fear ability),and I doubt they allowed him to cut them down one by one,I seriously doubt they were sitting idly while Kenpachi was killing them lol.Originally Posted by Torran
Well,I think it would actually be pretty interesting that way.If Byakuya had Rukia to be concerned of,I really,really wonder if Yachiru would be Kenpachi's concern.I'd think that Kenpachi has no fear,except Yachiru getting hurt.And even that one would fly out the window if Kenpachi simply thinks that she is strong enough to take care of herself.Originally Posted by Hakuteiken

As long as you do not use offensive language (clearly like it's in this case, as there isn't any offensive words whatsoever in this post I quoted), state your opinion as you wish to, but just don't expect others to come to an agreement, since no one in this thread has ever agreed with your posts so far, as far as I could remember.
And saying Byakuya couldn't defeat his opponent while Kenpachi killed three is pointless as As Nodt was actually using his ability, evading attacks and using Blut Vene, which the others didn't. I know they didn't because the first was just howling really loud and got cut in the spot, the second one stood there talking forever and got cut in the spot, and the third transformed into a clone which was a very bad idea because Kenpachi always starts out weak. Blut Vene can make the Quincy survive a nuke by Ryujin Jakka, but these 3 SR Kenpachi killed got cut so easily, what does it say of that? Their deaths were almost played for laughs back in that chapter.
So far, the only people to take out any Sternritters are Kenpachi (3), Yamamoto (5?), and Ichigo (1).
Kenpachi's not weak at all, he's a monster even without reaching his full potential. As strong as Yama? Doubtful, but maybe after some serious training he'll be closer in strength.
On the right: An airborne fighter with long ranged attacks.
I want to see Kenpachi doing something to him.
But since you already forgot my initial post, Shunsui wanted to train Kenpachi because as he is right now he's not captain material, so it is completely relevant to this discussion since my post was moved here from the chapter discussion
But I'm done with this. I may not have a hundred people on my side with this, but I have what Kubo made Shunsui said that as he is right now Kenpachi is not worth a damn against competent enemies. And 3 stupid Stern Ritter is not what I would call competent. The time for Kenpachi to fight enemies like Nnoitra and Yammi is over and he better learn to fight people like the Quincy or step aside.
