Really,it doesn't get more simple than that.Another question still remains though : who was it that kicked Ken-chan's ass ? Juha or Royd ?

Doesn't Royd copy a person through and through?
I honestly don't know why this thread was made, do people think kenpachi is that powerful that he got trolled somehow? Its clear that kenpachi just isn't strong enough at the moment but because he is one of the 5 war potentials he will likely get stronger and redeem himself later on. I mean Bleach is supposed to go on at least another 5 years so...
For me it does matter,because it would mean the power-charts with the SR are off-balance.I mean,just look at the manga,Kenpachi kills 3 SR without a scar on him,yet when Yama-jii roasts 3 SR with his Shikai they live ?(seeing as Buzzbee was alive and roasted,I suppose the other 2 SR lived too).Power-balance seems kind of hectic right now.Originally Posted by NinjaStar
Kubo overhyped Ken-chan in interviews and in the novel "Spirits are forever with you".Supposedly,he is insanely strong now,and his seal absorbs 20x times the reiatsu than the other one.And now for example,take a look at the other captains,who can barely hold their ground against 1 SR (Byakuya is proof enough,I just wonder if he is truly dead).Ken-chan sealed killed 3 SR with his seal on,suggesting that his power is that much greater than any of current captains,so it still doesn't make sense that Royd(the one who copyes MEMORIES and MENTALITY ,unlike Loyd who copyes power and strength)was the one who beat him,since that would suggest Royd is extremely close to Juha as power,yet it isn't that way.Originally Posted by NinjaStar
So I think it was actually Juha blocking Ken-chan's sword in that panel(can't remember the chapter),and after beating him he procceded towards Aizen,leaving Royd to take care of Ken-chan further.
Though,I wonder why Ken-chan didn't releases his seal lol.
If you check out the panel of Juha holding Kenpachi up by the neck, you'll see that his seal was indeed off.
Yeah,you're right,sorry about that.So,Ken-chan was unsealed already...
And still beaten, which supports the version in which real Bach beat Kenpachi and left only after that.
1) Kenpachi is custom made for these fights. He doesn't need a bankai to achieve his full power. IMO Byakuya and Kenpachi are relatively even(pre time skip) and yet Byakuya was trashed. Thats because Byakuya using his Bankai is equal to a unsealed kenpachi. Byakuya was denied his full power and thus at a disadvantage. Same thing for the other captains.
2) The people Kenpachi fought might have just been fodder. Yama roasted that "Overkill" Quincy and yet couldn't kill the other 3 that tried to jump him. So it would seem that the Quincy vary in power. Obviously the one that Byakuya fought was of a higher level seeing as how he not only raped Byakuya but later survived Yama's BBQ. Same with the one Shunsui is fighting. Not only does he seem to be a higher ranking quincy but the fact that he keeps using his holly mode means he is going all out. None of the Quincy Kenpachi fought used it to my knowledge.
3) Kenpachi is full of PlotKai. Look at how he beat the SR that could copy him. He didn't reveal some sort of new tech, he didn't come up with some sort of clever strategy, and he didn't receive help from his Zanpakuto or anybody else for that matter.. All he did was become stronger than he was before...How much damn sense does that make? If that was the case why can't everybody just decide that i want to get stronger right now? Why do people even train? Why didn't the SR just get stronger too? Thats the stupidest possible way to EVER win a fight. EVER.
4) Kenpachi is one of the few people that probably actually got stronger over the TS and still has a lot of potential. All the senior captains have probably been done improving for decades now, Soifon could have improved her Shunko but he hates her bankai so thats not improving, the other capains(save for Komamarua) probably improved, and while Byakuya might have improved his overall skill we know he didn't improve his Bankai.
So all in all i would say that Kenpachi did what he was supposed to do. Beat some fodder but get raped by some guy that was much more powerful. It wasn't Bach but it was still somebody much stronger than him. I don't understand why its so hard to believe that kenpachi was beat by somebody that wasn't the head of the quincy. If you think about it Kenpachi is powerful but he is really kinda limited in overall skill, so if his opponent isn't a hack and slash fighter he is at a disadvantage.
I'm pretty sure he just forgot to fight with two hands again.
Why can't people realize that copying memories and personality is much better than copying strength? Royd copied Bach memories, which basically make him has access to all of Bach's techniques as well as his 1000 years battle experience. Of course his techniques will be much weaker than Bach because even though he has mentally train them, his body is not used to it (unless he had time to train his body). Copying strength without knowing how to use them is useless, but copying a person's memory basically means that copying the brain. From biology 101, we all know that the brain controls every part of the body.
It is a mere assumption that if Bach strength is copied, royd/loyd would beat Yama. Like I said, copying the strength without knowing how to use it is pointless (loyd vs kenny not even a scratch). Anyone can steal yama's bankai, but the problem is controlling it. If royd/loyd copied Bach's strength and steal yama's bankai, will they be able to use it without knowing its power? Back to kenpachi, if royd faced him and copied his memories, sure he wont be able to match kenny's reiatsu, but does he need Kenny's strength at all? Since quincies gave never been using raw power to battle (maybe not the gorilla guy), having kenny's strength is pretty much irrelevant if he preferred long range attacks like most quincies do. Furthurmore, he will know all about kenny's flaws and weaknesses. Combining that knowledge with his quincy powers, he stands a pretty good chance of scratching him.
As for Kenpachi, im not sure if i follow what you are saying, but you shouldn't dwell too much on it. Kenpachi is mega wanked by Kubo. His power flucates almost as much as Ichigo's and if "spirits are forever with you" is ever confirmed to be canon then it makes sense. Oh and the belief that quincy only, or at the very lesat prefer, is basically done with. You shouldn't generalize quincy like that. Maybe fighting at long range was true for the teachings of the "old ways" by Ishida's grandfather but as you can clearly see it varies with these new quincy. After Kirge's arrows were proven to be useless he almost fought exclusively with his sword. Bach also preferred to fight with his sword. It just depends.
