5. Tetsuzaemon Iba:
Although Iba hasn’t revealed his Bankai, he loves fights and is still the captain of the 7th division. He still has good strength and is a skilled swordsman. He’s demonstrated this on several occasions, but he’s still working on it. He’s still training to get into captain’s form, even after the end of Bleach’s final arc. That is to say, despite his love of fighting, he hasn’t excelled in many bouts out of all the captains. His Bankai hasn’t been revealed, and neither has his Zanpakuto. It’s not that he is weak but it’s just enough to put him here at this position in this list.
4. Lisa Yadōmaru:
Lisa is the current captain of the 8th division for a reason, despite not having seen her Bankai in Bleach. She was quick enough to duel a Hollowfied Bankai Ichigo and even held her own against a Hollowfied Kensei for a bit without using Shikai. Similarly, the slightly perverse captain is ambidextrous and doesn’t back down when challenged. During the Fake Karakura Town arc, Lisa defeated the Menos Grande-level Hollow with fast sword attacks and faced 3rd Espada Tier Harribe alone. She was also among those who attempted to fight Aizen but were blown back. Aside from that, she has a Hollow mask that can greatly increase her skills, but she can only use it for a limited time.
3. Isane Kotetsu:
Isane’s the 4th Division’s captain for a cause, as she’s almost mastered the spellwork path. She not only heals everyone’s wounds, but she also rushes into a fight on occasion, as she did with Aizen during the Soul Society Arc. Her gift for healing has saved countless lives, and her combat prowess is unrivaled. Even though her legs were immobilized, she held firm during the Zanpakuto rebellion. She’s also fast enough to keep up with Unohana, her commander.
2. Soi Fon:
Soi Fon is the captain of Bleach’s Gotei 13’s 2nd Division. She also possesses a Bankai with an insanely strong rocket launcher. It was said to be so strong that it shattered the Shij no Saimon or Four Beast Gate. Fon is a quick character that uses her Shunpo powers to create a slew of speed clones. It’s also worth noting Fon’s unique ability to kill in two steps. It’s nothing fancy, as Ggio illustrated in the Fake Karakura Town chapter of Bleach. When the butterfly insignia emerges, it’s a two-step assassination in which the castor hits two sides and the death effect is instantaneous. God! Girls in anime are so intimidating and lethal.
1. Shinji Hirako:
The strongest captain on this list is Shinji Hirako. Shinji is the most powerful of the Visored and 5th Division Captains, who were originally antagonistic. He thought to confront Aizen partly because he was their leader. He has the advantage of experience because he is older than his peers. He also has hollow abilities, such as increased speed, strength, and endurance, as well as access to Cero. Plus, there’s that wacky illusion sword. People that use illusion swords are just powerful. His Zanpakuto creates illusions, causing the opponent’s view of reality, as well as gravity, to be utterly off. Even if Aizen succeeded to outsmart him, he exploits this to great use to mislead opponents like Aizen.
