the fight is pointless because Shunsui beat Stark and is proven stronger
Shunsui doesn't have to use irooni, he can fight normal with his swords hand probably produce similar damage. Irooni is a gamble technique, enhancing the power of your sword strikes while putting yourself in the same danger (if the opponent figures out the rules). It's a strategic implement, he doesn't always have to rely on it.
I realize that, but I'm bringing out the example of if he were to use it, he'd only have to call one color, for his turn which he calls out since he's the initiator of the game, and it'd be over. We haven't even seen what he's capable of fully yet. That is what amazes me about his character. Man I really hope Kubo does him justice. Along with Isshin Juushiro and whoever else hasn't shown bankai.
Byakuya can probably take down Shunsui mid difficulty.
R1 ulquiorra stomps.
This 'senior captain' rubbish was a tier entirely made up from speculation from fans.
Oh before you go 'oh but Shunsui downed Stark'
Go reread the manga lol.
Although in terms of feats shown Stark is probably on par with grimmjow to be perfectly honest.
Espada ranks became a little more than meaningless when the following facts were revealed.
1. Aizen ranked the Espada by reiatsu.
2. Yammy's release, which merely doubled his reiatsu (according to the databook), was enough to jump 9 ranks.

Shunsui can casually beat an opponent like R1 ulq how? He couldn't handle R1 stark, was about to go bankai until ukitake saved his ass. He needed to give stark a hole through his spine to fight on even grounds with him. Stark never once tried to blitz shunsui before he got backstabbed either. R1 Ulq and stark pretty much have the same speed feats considering they both vanished in front of ichigo.

Aizen and manga clearly explained, why Espada's ranking was based according to their Reiatsu level... because the more Reiatsu you have, the stronger you are.
That's why it's obvious that Stark far exeeds Ulquiora. Even the same Ulquiora stated that he is weaker than any of first threee Espadas.
We have no idea about what Shunsui's bankai may be but Kubo hinted that he could have defeated Aizen with his bankai, in that case IMHO Ulquiorra doesn't have a realistic chance against Shunsui's bankai. If his shikai is in the mood, I think he still has what it takes to defeat Ulquiorra with the shikai but Ulquiorra is a strong opponent, so perhaps his chances of victory is higher than Shunsui's under these conditions.
I think people look to much in Shunsui's Shikai mood...
I don't thibk that it was Shunsui's Shikai that wasn't in the mood, but on the contrary, it was Shunsui who wasn't in the mood. He didn't want to kill Stark as he saw himself in Stark, but they were on different sides, hence he didn't use his Shikai at his best from get-go
Again, anyone believes that Hallibel can take Shunsui in Shikai? And Ulquiora said himself that he is weaker than Hallivel, not even talking about Barragan or Stark.
Fact is that ulquarra's only feat is beating ichigo.
The very same Ichigo who BARELY defeated the 6# espada moments before his battle with Uluarra.
And the only feats his second Etopia form showed was a slight increase in power and a very powerful "and unstable" version of cero. Even before his second release Ulquarra was completely dominating Ichigo, so what bases do we have to conclude that his second resurrection jumped his power up 3 whole ranks to put him above Stark? the answer is, we have none.
Now if you ask me Stark has better feats than Ulquarra who only owned ichigo.
Stark fought 4 senior Captains 2 of which where Vizards and the other 2 senior Captains who where the first to become Captains through Yama's school. it was only when he was depressed with Aizen's action towards barragan and getting ambushed by Shunsui that he lost and even than that was after him clearly having the upper hand in most of his battles.
I think its obvious Shunsui wins this just by the fact that he was able to best a Espada of higher rank and abilities.

IMO, shunsui will win in this fight, not because he defeat starrk but because his experience in fighting for many century. I assumed his kidou, swordsmanship and abilities of zapakuto is greater than ulquiora power.
Btw, Top 3 espada vs shinigami at FK is to rushing and i feel the espada's is to weak and not shine at all compare to Grimmjow & Ulquiorra. So, for me... i cant really measured their strength because the "stars" in this fight is shinigami especially Toshiro & of course they will win.
so more reiatsu=autowin?
Shunsui wasn't in the mood? the guy tried to cleave Stark in half/chop his head off at every opportunity he got after Stark released.
And when was Lanza confirmed to be a cero again? Or a 'version of a cero'. As far as I know versions of ceros are 1. Called cero. 2. Looks like a cero.
But considering the fact that he is a hollow I would think the only thing it could be is a version of a cero or bala.
Now there are the very special cases such as Stark's (spirit wolves) or Barragan's (respira) but I don't hold Ulquarra to their level of uniqueness and thus I just assumed that it was a version of a cero.
