Why was Ikkaku not taken to the Royal Palace?
Because the Zero Squad have Zero love for him. Thats why.
Nah, Bleach is a beauty contest and the damn fool isn't popular among the fans. Let's face the reality, Byakuya, Renji and Rukia are well loved, they are the Bleach Idols or Shinigami got talents etc.... Honestly speaking the last two aren't important in this war. The most useful ones are Urahara, Aizen and Ichigo then those belong in the 2nd tier are Kenpachi + all senior captains (those became captains more than 200 years ago), the rest is a big waste of time.
He is missing a damn Lung. >.>''
The Royal Guard should've taken him with them too unless he died by then.Ikkaku on the other hand encountered neither a Stern Ritter nor Soldats.He wasn't even hurt.
Fixing the Asauchi and the training came later i guess.

Well for me the royal guards took with them the ones that had the potentials for their strengths and skills to increase in the royal realm. The other ones like ikkaku, zaraki and many more were not judged worthy.
Well, if even Renji became so powerful after training in Royal Realm, then Ikkaku and Hisagi might have become even more powerful. Not even talking about the likes of Hitsugaya. I do believe it would have been more logical to take more people with them. Especially if they wanted Gotei to win the War.
I think the best answer is that ikkaku isn't popular compared to renji or byakuya, that's why he stayed in soul society.
ikkaku is a secondary character and isnt popular
he also either failed or barely got through every fight he ever had
and those were with enemies much weaker than the current ones
there is simply no point in giving him a powerup because it wont matter, a friggin wrestler just owned 2 vizard captains on his first appearance
there is simply no way ikkaku can do any real damage, he will likely lose within seconds with or without his bankai and will only be used to showcase zaraki`s powerup
and since bleach is ending i honestly don`t think we will see ikkaku in more than a couple of pages, considering the current pace he might actually lose offscreen
Do you know who is weak? The answer is Renji! Why didn't the RG bring Kenpachi after his special training with Unohana? If they did this, then 99.99% of the SR would have been wiped off the existence by now, Shunshui should have gone training too, just let those useless old men at central 46 get killed, SS can be built after winning the war against quincy.
Because Ikkaku wasn't badly injured like Rukia and Renji. Ichigo's the only one that can go to the Royal Dimension even though he had light injuries, because he's special and the Spirit King probably knows that. And he's the main char
There might be a deeper reason why Ikkaku was not taken to the RR. You remember that Oetsu got after both Renji and Ichigo for not respecting their zanpakutou. And that disrespect for their inner power made their weapons brittle. You might also remember that Ikkaku's bankai was fragile. If as with Renji and Ichigo, his attitude towards his power was affecting the stability of his power, Oetsu might not have wanted to bother with Ikkaku, because he doesn't care about his own power. He only cares about fighting and dying alongside his captain. Unless his attitude changes, there is no point in fixing his bankai. Besides, Ikkaku doesn't seem too worried about the state of his bankai. He relies more on brute strength anyhow. Perhaps his motivation is less to repair his bankai, so he wasn't chosen to go. That's just a guess, f course.

Also, I should mention that sending Kenpachi to the Royal Realm would be a HORRIBLE idea from Soul Society's perspective. They already hated the idea of Unohana training him.

The only problem is his death isn't confirmed yet.So being gravely injured might not be the only reason for the RG to take them to the Realm.(Ofcourse Iam talking about VCs with good potential and Captains who can make a difference in the war =P ) If he was shown to be dead,Then I can be pretty sure about the injury criterion.Originally Posted by ninjabot
