Coding In Template By: [THEFROST]

THE SHINIGAMI TEMPLATE

The Demon of Rukongai


I. Basic Information


» Name: Zaraki Kenpachi
» Alias: Kenpachi (剣八, Sword-Eight) is the title that is only given to the strongest Shinigami of a generation. It is an ironclad rule that there can be only one Kenpachi per generation, meaning that the predecessor must die for the killer to succeed the title. To inherit this title, the candidate must kill the current Kenpachi in battle. The title is traditionally held within the 11th Division of the Gotei 13. Though at some point a new Kenpachi system was created by Ibiki, Zaraki was the last and only current holder of the title to kill the previous Kenpachi to claim it.
» Age: At least 600 years or older
» Gender: Male
» Height: 202 cm (6'7½")
» Weight: 140 kg (309 lbs)

» Association: For much of his life Zaraki has served in the Gotei Thirteen, Soul Society's organized military. He originally entered the Gotei by killing the captain of the 11th Division to take his place, staying in that position for centuries before eventually leaving for personal reasons. Eventually he ended up back associated with the Gotei United where he currently serves.

» Appearance Image:

Spoiler:
 

» Appearance Written:

Kenpachi is an immensely tall, muscular Shinigami with a wild and aggressive appearance, which is particularly appropriate given his personality. Despite his size his limbs and torso are actually quite slender underneath the large old style Shinigami outfit he usually wears. He has a long face with pronounced, long cheekbones and hairless brow ridges, a peculiarity which is odd even among Shinigami. Zaraki has green eyes usually in a relaxed somewhat-squinty shape and long, stringy black hair. A noticeable trait in his facial appearance is a thin scar running down the left side of his face and across his left eye from his hairline to jawline, inflicted on him by Retsu Unohana while he was still a child.

In addition to the standard Shinigami uniform and Shihakushō, Zaraki wears white bandages across his midsection and a sleeveless captain's haori (which belonged to the previous captain and was taken after his defeat), which has a ragged look to it due to poor maintenance from its current owner and only being repaired when absolutely necessary. He styles his hair into stiff, thick spikes during his baths, attaching small bells at its tips, and wears a special black eyepatch over his right eye. The bells are worn, oddly enough, to given enemies an upper hand in battle as they'll be able to tell where he moves by the sounds they give off. Long ago the eyepatch was more elegant, having a gold-like lining and a chain as one of the straps. He also wore a black choker necklace. Later, he removed the choker and gave his eyepatch normal straps in order to simplify his appearance and take out some of the unnecessary flare.

Overall despite the rather strange hair style Zaraki incorporated into his look hundreds of years ago, his appearance can largely be described as intimidating. Towering over almost everyone while also being extraordinarily muscular is enough to frighten many enemies, though the truly terrifying aspect of his mien is the gigantic clown-like smile usually spread across his face in times of battle. Even while sustaining crippling damage this smile permeates from cheek to cheek, an ever-present message to remind foes just how much he enjoys battle. Despite having defended Soul Society dozens of times in the past, the average Seireitei or Rukongai civilian reacts to his presence with fear due to both his reputation as a brutal monster and his intimidating appearance.

I. Personality


» Personality:

Although he is known to be a violent and beastly fighter Kenpachi's actions tend to be for the best, or at least what he perceives to be the best. Zaraki lives for battle, and enjoys a good fight more than anything else in the world. He even holds back both consciously and subconsciously in an effort to make any fight last longer, even those against individuals objectively weaker than him. This trait is so severe at one point when he was a child and fought Gotei Captain Yachiru Unohana his mind built mental blocks to prevent him from using his full power just so he could enjoy the thrill of battle more. He claims injury and death are nothing but the price one pays for a good fight, which is the main reason he is so unafraid and even willing to be injured in combat. Despite his tendency to be brutal, Kenpachi usually stops a fight if his opponent is too injured to fight back, claiming he is not interested in fighting "weaklings who can't fight anymore", and does not feel obligated to deal a death blow to anyone who cannot fight any longer, a mercy which extends even to some enemies. However, he will unhesitatingly kill his opponent if they refuse to end their fight, such as during his battles with Kaname Tōsen and Nnoitra Gilga though the former escaped death due to the intervention of another Captain. The title of Kenpachi is held in the highest esteem by Zaraki to the point where he believes if he is not as strong as he can possibly be he brings shame upon the name.

Kenpachi's unique hairstyle is partly due to his habit of taking a bath every day before going to sleep, which is a necessity due to his strong perspiration from excessive exercise and training in the daytime. During these baths he usually washes his hair with soap, making it stiff. Zaraki enjoys doing so because it is easy for him to set his hair to his preferred style, aka in spikes. He once tried a hair treatment recommended by 1st Division Lieutenant Chōjirō Sasakibe, but his hair became too silky and was impossible to set for a while. After then Kenpachi greatly disliked the lieutenant. Zaraki attaches the bells to his hair himself, which takes a while to accomplish. The highest bell in particular used to take him several hours to attach, as the tip of his hair is just beyond his reach, though due to hundreds of years of practice it has gotten easier. He refuses to get help as he thinks it is weird for someone else to style his hair, a trait perhaps due to his own masculinity.

On multiple occasions Kenpachi has shown great respect to those who can defeat him in a fight and those who can push him to his limit, as very few can. Ever since Ichigo Kurosaki handed him his first known loss since against Retsu Unohana (though Ichigo considers their fight a loss for him), Kenpachi has considered the former a member of his Division. Despite Ichigo's refusal to engage in a rematch with Kenpachi as he considers him an ally, Kenpachi constantly expresses his desire for it every time they meet, even over four hundred years later. He has aided Ichigo in fights, doing so as it would make Ichigo stronger for "their anticipated fight". Kenpachi also holds great respect for Unohana, the only person he ever admired, as she was the first person to make him experience the thrill of battle. He readily acknowledges that the two of them are very much alike, pointing out without their strength both would just be petty criminals.

Zaraki sometimes contradicts his own logic when it comes to fighting. On the one hand, Kenpachi wishes to always increase his own personal power; On the other hand, he conceals his strength to enjoy a fight as much and for as long as possible. Although he thrives in and lives for battle, Kenpachi has displayed the ability to experience other more human emotions, particularly with specific people in his past. However his brutality and bluntness usually take center stage, at one point stating if his subordinates interfere in his fights he will "cut them up first". Following his initial clash with Ichigo, Kenpachi talked about the pain of not having a name as he lived his early years without one. This causes him to feel guilty his sword is not acknowledged by its own name while most others are. Since then, he has striven to learn its identity but to no avail.

Kenpachi strongly believes fun comes before working. If he does not believe a far away opponent or enemy is worth his time Zaraki is very likely to send one of his subordinates in his place, not even bothering to respond to requests unless absolutely necessary or if he happens to feel like doing so at the time. During his free time Kenpachi always takes his afternoon nap, an activity he goes out of his way to partake in every day even in war. Though Zaraki does not have a particularly favorite dish, he particularly hates nattō.

Despite thing not usually easily getting to Zaraki, in the throes of battle he can become quite frustrated. There are a few factors that can frustrate him in these types of circumstances. One major example is if an enemy removes his eye patch, either on purpose or accidentally, as it releases his true power. Unfortunately, due to his overwhelming strength this release of power usually results in his battles immediately becoming one-sided, and as such takes away much of the enjoyment he gains from fighting. Another example is if an opponent uses an especially complicated ability or one that can't be readily dealt with through physically crushing it, as it takes away the most fun he gets from combat. Enemies who continue to try fighting after being defeated annoy him a bit as he firmly believes they shouldn't want to die, and instead should focus on improving and getting stronger as they're lucky they survived in the first place.

I. Equipment


» Equipment:

Eyepatch Power Seal: While unneeded due to possessing fully functioning eyes, Kenpachi wears an eyepatch created by the Shinigami Research and Development Institute just for him. In addition to reducing his depth perception and range of vision, it also seals the bulk of his Reiryoku. He wears this because he loves fighting so much that he cannot fight most opponents at full strength and enjoy it, as he would defeat them too quickly, to which he is still at least on par with most opponents while wearing it. While regularly removed or destroyed in battle against powerful enemies Zaraki long ago had dozens made to replace any to meet such a fate, always allowing him to restrict his own power in battle. The seal is strong enough to restrict multiple tiers worth of energy and power, making him seem like an entirely different entity when it is removed. During his battle with Aramand Armageddus Zaraki used the eye patch to absorb a large energy attack consisting of both fighters' energy, devouring it in its entirety over the course of 10-15 seconds with no collateral damage.

Reiatsu Bells: In order to further give the enemy an advantage, Kenpachi wears bells on each spike of his hair. These bells can only be heard by enemies whose Reiatsu is concentrated to the point where it can actually defeat Kenpachi. What this essentially means is anyone below 0 tier won't hear any sounds come from the bells, making them nothing more than odd hair ornaments to those individuals.

I. Racial Techniques/Abilities/Skills


» Racial and Basic Abilities:

Kido and Shunpo: Despite having been a captain for hundreds of years, Zaraki still possesses no skill or knowledge of either Kido or Flash Step. Though various individuals have offered to teach him the latter due to his own historical record of being able to keep up with Shunpo users with his own raw speed he doesn't consider it worth the effort to learn and practice. Through experience Zaraki is able to fight against both using his other skills, however.

Grand Master Swordsman: Due to the lawlessness of the Zaraki district in which he was born and raised, Kenpachi's skill with his sword has been honed to essentially a master level, letting him strike multiple times with changes of attack type (from slash to pierce) without any difficulty. Unlike Shinigami trained in the Shino Academy, all of Zaraki's skill came from fighting and slaughtering criminals and Gotei soldiers and officers, learning through experience instead. While still a child his prowess was great enough to single-handedly kill hundreds of adult fighters and not only wound Retsu Unohana, the 1st Kenpachi, in battle but also nearly kill her until his own mind blocked off his power so he could enjoy fighting more. His unpolished skills, but immense might with his sword allow him to always fight with one hand free, only using both hands when facing opponents he feels will beat him otherwise, such as with Nnoitra and momentarily Ichigo. As the captain of the 11th Division, which specializes in sword fighting, he is among the most, if not the most, proficient swordsmen in all of Soul Society. His style of fighting is particularly effective against well trained swordsmen due to the chaotic and aggressive nature he employs in battle, not being prone to using specific techniques or attacks taught in actual martial arts. Zaraki is also capable of fighting opponents who use irregular weapons, such as Nnoitra, without too much trouble as his constant aggression works wonders against enemies who try to keep him at range or off balance. During his battle with Tetsuya Tachibana, Zaraki was able to deal with the former's Shikai and Bankai through a combination of physical strength and swordsmanship. During all their clashes, Zaraki retained the upper hand and managed to not only parry many of Tetsuya's blows, but also was able to remain basically untouched by his opponent's blade, a testament to Zaraki's skill.

  • Kendō: Kenpachi possesses considerable knowledge and skill in Kendō, which Yamamoto forced him to learn before officially joining the Gotei 13, though the training only lasted a day out of fear that Zaraki would become too powerful. Despite it being cut short, the little bit of official training he underwent was enough to provide him with a way to essentially double his normal attacking power because he usually fights with a free hand instead of both on his sword's tsuka. However Kenpachi, who despises using skills and techniques learned from another source, only uses Kendō as a last resort or against individuals he believes it is necessary to use both hands to damage. This has only been displayed once openly, against Nnoitra Gilga, when Zaraki used Kendō to end the fight instantly while the former was in his Ressureccion form. In modern times, his use of Kendō is largely unknown to the world at large, including Gotei Captains, and thus gives it the element of surprise in future battles.


    • Ryōdan (両断, Bisection): A technique which Kenpachi uses when he is gripping his sword with two hands. It allows one to split an opponent down the middle by slashing downward in a straight line. The directness of this attack coupled with Zaraki using two hands, and thus double his normal slashing strength, was enough for him to kill a released Espada in a single hit, breaking through his iron skin like it was paper. The effects of this attack can be felt from a kilometer away, the sonic wave and pressure blast released from it enough to take down buildings which may not be in the line of fire but are just nearby. Even being near the use of this technique can cause damage to both friends and foes alike as its collateral damage is severe, particularly if Zaraki uses it while his eye patch is off.
      Ryōdan can crush people under the weight of the physical force and/or spiritual pressure used.



Hand-to-Hand Combat Expert: While preferring to use his blade in battle, Kenpachi has proven several times to be very dangerous while barehanded, showing considerably effective brawling prowess. He can easily catch an opponent's attack with a single hand, perform powerful punches and kicks, and easily subdue opponents with throws and take-downs. Kenpachi easily overwhelmed several members of the Onmitsukidō, a corp of Hakuda-specialists, despite being battle-worn. Similar to his particular method of swordsmanship, Zaraki hand fights ferociously and wildly, lacking any real training whatsoever. This can make him dangerous against more proficient fighters as his movements are unpredictable and aggressive allowing him to take down enemies by scoring unusual or unexpected hits. Zaraki takes advantage of his overwhelming strength in close combat to land punches or throws between sword strikes without having to worry about building momentum or throwing his body into attacks.


Overwhelming Spiritual Power: Even by a captain's standards, Zaraki's Reiryoku is monstrous. He has so much that even while wearing his energy-sealing eyepatch, his prowess is not noticeably hindered as he is still able to fight two captain-level opponents at once who were both using their Bankai. Ganju Shiba estimated his eyepatch-sealed power to be close to or at the same level as Byakuya Kuchiki's Reiatsu, a strong captain unrestrained by any similar devices. Retsu Unohana, one of the most powerful and original captains of the Gotei 13, stated she was weaker than him even while he was still a child. Evidently while he was a young child his Reiryoku was great enough to imprint a Zanpakuto the first time he touched it as well as only losing to Unohana after subconsciously restricting his own power enough for her to gain the upper hand. Similar to Ichigo, when unleashing a strong enough surge of energy, it becomes visible and yellow in color, sometimes with the appearance of a skull. This effect can happen while still wearing the eyepatch, a testament to the incredible power within Zaraki. His spiritual pressure has been known to cause intense winds and damage to his surroundings and terrain, even on a large scale level. During his battle with Tetsuya Tachibana, releasing burst of spiritual pressure even before removing his eye patch was enough to cause large nearby buildings to crumble. Once his eye patch limiter was removed, a pillar of sheer pressure created from the dam breaking was enough to reduce Orange Walk Town to little more than rubble. At his full strength Zaraki's spiritual power can be described as nightmarish, and enough to instill fear in the most indomitable of individuals.

Unruly Reiatsu Control: By his own admission, Kenpachi has poor control of his spiritual energy as it constantly remains very potent, forcing him to rely on his eyepatch to keep it at a more manageable level. While other Shinigami can restrict or hide their Reitsu, Zaraki is completely unable to do this without the eyepatch to do it for him. Despite this, he is able to make liberal use of it in a variety of ways. It can affect large areas, spanning kilometers, and cause others within that area to enter a state of paralysis and confusion. When exerting his energy the sheer magnitude of it can cause considerable damage to his surroundings, destroying the area around him and launching away weaker opponents. Buildings have been known to collapse just by being near him as his energy lashes out, and even Gotei captains have been taken aback by how intense his Reitsu and Reiryoku are with or without his eyepatch. Exerting his energy alone is enough to repel or block enemy attacks such as Ceros, depending on the user, reducing them to wisps of air on contact with his oceanic power. A few examples of how his Reitsu can be used follows:


  • Damage Resistance: The intensity of Kenpachi's Reiryoku also acts as a sort of armour, making it impossible for him to be physically harmed by almost anyone not at least at his level of power. This is first demonstrated when he faced Ichigo. At the start of the fight, Kenpachi allows Ichigo to strike him, yet despite leaving himself completely unguarded and not resisting, not only did Ichigo fail to cut him, but Ichigo's hands started to bleed because of the recoil. Functioning similar to Hierro, this protective armour can be beaten by a strong enough attack but by exerting more and more energy the durability of his skin can increase enough to block attacks which previously could damage him. This is most well displayed by removing his eyepatch after being cut, causing a large enough power release to essentially make him immune to attacks that could have damaged him prior. As seen above even energy based attacks can be caught or blocked barehanded by Zaraki without taking even a scratch. Against both Li Qiang and Tetsuya Tachibana, Zaraki Kenpachi remained for the most part undamaged, largely thanks to his base durability and the layer of armour his Spiritual Pressure provides him.

  • Shock Wave: He possesses enough control to focus and unleash his spiritual pressure in the form of a powerful shock wave. The pressure and force of this attack can be enough to cleave through metal objects even dozens of meters, if not more, away from him with little trouble. The shock waves themselves also produce sonic booms which can cause even more widespread damage to foes and terrain. When using both hands, his shock wave can have a huge radius of destruction and increase in potential damage dramatically. Against Tetsuya Tachibana, Zaraki was able to take out entire sections of Orange Walk Town with shock waves while his eye patch limiter was still on.


  • Energy Wave: By striking at the ground, Kenpachi can create an overflowing tidal wave of yellow spiritual energy which surges forward before crashing into either his target or whatever it hits first. Unlike the shock wave he can exert with his Reitsu which is a physical attack, this application of his Reiryoku is like getting hit by a truckload-sized Kido spell due to it being made directly of his energy. Due to this it can be much more dangerous than at first appearances as most enemies would not expect him to use anything but physical attacks against them, giving him a bit of an element of surprise.


Highly Perceptive Combatant: Despite his seeming disregard for any strategy and his self-admitted aversion to thinking, Kenpachi has regularly displayed more understanding than one would expect. Even Byakuya was impressed by Kenpachi's ability to understand things he has no personal experience with. He is very adept at finding and exploiting weaknesses in his opponents' techniques, and likewise at adjusting to his opponent's attack patterns and battle methods to better counter them. Even enemies who at first seem to have the upper hand Zaraki can eventually turn the tide of battle solely by instinctively and intuitively figuring out how they fight and then changing his own fighting style to take advantage of any perceived weaknesses or openings. This was demonstrated when he was subdued by Kaname Tōsen's Bankai, leaving him with only his blade and sense of touch, which prompted him to slowly get closer and closer to damaging his opponent despite lacking four out of five senses until eventually allowing Tosen to stab him, after which Zaraki immediately grabbed him and dealt a near-killing blow. He is also deceptively insightful, able to notice subtle traits in people and see what drives a person's actions; he correctly singled out Kaname Tōsen and Gin Ichimaru as the only captains who are afraid to die, and is able to learn about a person just by fighting them though this is more like an animalistic sense. Zaraki also possesses sharp intuition towards incoming danger, which allowed him to repeatedly dodge Tōsen's assault while still affected by his Bankai which blocked out his senses of sight, hearing, taste, and smell meaning he dodged attacks based on intuition alone. While claiming not to have any common sense, Kenpachi can still theorize pretty well in battle, figuring out how an opponent's abilities function and what weaknesses they could possess just by observing or fighting them.


Supernatural Strength: Kenpachi possesses a very large degree of physical strength, most commonly displayed by his ability to push back his opponent's attacks with a single arm, even if the opponent's weapons and attacks are gigantic in size. Through singular sword swings Zaraki is able to quite easily produce massive gusts of wind and explosion-like interactions with his surroundings from the strength in his arm alone. Despite his Zanpakuto being cut and chipped Zaraki has no issue cutting through the densest and most durable objects he has encountered. When he fought Nnoitra, a high level Arrancar supposedly with the strongest Hierro in the entire Espada, Zaraki at first could not cut him but once he "got used to" his opponent's durability all he had to do to was increase his own strength output to damage him. Being able to lift and cut through building-sized pillars, Kenpachi is able to physically overwhelm almost every opponent he comes into contact with. One of the best examples of his physical capabilities was how by using two hands instead of one Zaraki, while mortally wounded, was able to one-hit-kill Nnoitra in his Resurreccion transformation. While fighting Tetsuya in Belize, Zaraki Kenpachi without his eye patch was able to destroy all of Orange Walk Town and much of the surrounding terrain with a single powerful stomp. His physical prowess also overpowered and eliminated Tetsuya's Bankai creations almost instantly. As his most well-known attribute, it's no surprise Zaraki lives up to the legends surrounding his physical capabilities. By using only physical strength and swordsmanship, Zaraki was able to overpower and defeat the dangerous Tetsuya, a Monsuta commander known for being no slouch in combat.

  • In his various battles he has performed superhuman physical feats, such as launching full-grown men through buildings with a kick and slamming his opponents over his shoulder, as well as grabbing Ichigo's large sword to reel him in for an attack. He can also ram clear through a solid wall like it's paper and launch his opponents back during a clash of weapons. With just his bare hand, Kenpachi grabbed and deflected the Cero of the fifth Espada, Nnoitra Gilga, using his durability and strength in unison to throw away a powerful energy attack without taking any damage. In Belize, Zaraki reduced an entire town to rubble with a single stomp while his eye patch was off.

  • His sword attacks can easily cut through an Arrancar's Hierro, which is harder than steel, including Yammy Llargo's while he was in his released form where Kenpachi cut off his leg and knocked the enormous Espada off his feet in a single strike. His extreme cutting strength is also evident from how he sliced apart a skyscraper with a mere flick of his wrist. Zaraki firmly believes there is nothing in existence he cannot cut, which while may not necessarily be absolutely true cannot be hand-waved away as he has already demonstrated time and time again the ability to do so against powerful enemies. Against Tetsuya, Zaraki with his eye patch on was able to tear a fissure open in the ground and collapse a building behind his opponent with a single sword swing.


Enhanced Speed: While he possesses no known skill in Shunpo, Kenpachi is deceptively fast for his size and build. Thanks to the tremendous raw strength in his legs, Kenpachi's natural acceleration more than make up for his lack of Shunpo, allowing him to move fast enough to instantly close a huge gap of space between him and his opponent, and even seemingly disappear from sight. In battle, he can strike with incredible speed in rapid succession, making it highly difficult for his opponents to find an opening and counterattack. During his short battle with Byakuya Kuchiki, a Gotei Captain renowned for his speed, Kenpachi manages to keep up with his opponent's incredibly fast Shunpo, a feat which shocked and impressed Byakuya. This applies to Sonido (such as when he had no trouble dealing with an Espada's speed) and other step movements as well, allowing Zaraki to keep, and even out, pace with opponents who by all measurements should be able to outrun a Shinigami without his own techniques. Against Tetsuya Tachibana, who possessed a high level of skill in Shunpo, Zaraki was able to both keep up and in some cases even outspeed the man.

Supernatural Endurance: His physical prowess is equally shown by his resilience. Kenpachi often ignores most of the injuries he sustains in battle, not suffering any debilitation despite having multiple slash wounds in his body and rarely any signs of pain (much like a berserker). He allowed himself to be stabbed during his fight with Tōsen just to grab Tōsen's blade to dispel his Bankai's effect. During his battle with Nnoitra, he suffered numerous slash wounds, even impaled and almost beheaded with no visual impairment of his fighting performance; Nnoitra noting most people would have already been dead by then. Even after receiving grievous injuries which left him in a comatose state, he healed enough to return to training only days later, showing a high recovery rate as well. Zaraki possesses the endurance and tenacity to survive and win wars of attrition, and while still experiences pain can willfully ignore it even to the point of not being too bothered by severed limbs or mortal wounds. He firmly believes in not accepting defeat until after he is dead, and as such will sustain any wounds necessary to keep fighting.

Supernatural Durability: As resilient as Kenpachi is, he is just as hard to damage. During his battle against Yammy, while Kenpachi was focusing his attention on Ichigo, Yammy delivered a powerful blow with his massive fist, launching Kenpachi several meters and smashing him into a large pillar. Despite the impact, Kenpachi quickly emerged unfazed, claiming it was only a "decent punch" but was still unimpressed. Even without considering his Reitsu-enhanced skin, which is essentially armour, hitting Zaraki is akin to punching a brick wall: The attacker is usually more likely to injure their self than Kenpachi. Though he has sustained hundreds of mortal wounds over the years, eventually healing from each one, for his opponents every single one of their attacks has to be full of strength and killing intent to continuously harm the demon of Rukongai.

I. Sealed Powers


» Zanpakutô Name: Unknown

» Zanpakutô Spirit Appearance: Unknown

» Inner World: Unknown

» Zanpakutô Appearance:


Kenpachi was able to imprint onto his Zanpakutō, originally stolen from another Shinigami, while still an untrained child. The blade is much longer than a standard Zanpakutō's, roughly the size of a nodachi, with a long guard which extends inward from its center, similar to a shinai. The hilt is white, though most of it is wrapped in bandages, as is his sword's sheath. Originally, Kenpachi was the only person in the history of the Gotei 13 who did not know the name of his Zanpakutō before becoming a captain, nor could he perform either of his blade's released states. After his fight with Ichigo, Kenpachi wished to learn more about his Zanpakutō because to become stronger and could identify with the pain of not having a name. Zangetsu noted Kenpachi's disharmony with his sword caused the two to damage each other's powers; consequently, Kenpachi could not hear the cry of his sword. Their disharmony left the weapon with little spiritual energy and became easier to damage; it is a chipped and seemingly worn-down blade upon its edge. Despite its appearance, Nozarashi can easily cut through most objects: with it, Kenpachi stabs straight through Ichigo's Zanpakutō, and later slices a building in half with no apparent effort after releasing his full power.

THE SHINIGAMI TEMPLATE

The Demon of Rukongai


I. History


» History:

Childhood and Early Years:

Not having a name to go by for as long as he could remember, he eventually chose to take his surname from the district he once resided in, Zaraki, which was District 80 of the North Alley of Rukongai. District 80 was the worst, most lawless region of Rukongai, full of thieves and murderers (whereas area #1 was the most orderly and law-abiding). As a young boy living in the streets of the Rukongai, Zaraki, coming upon the dead body of a Shinigami, took his Asauchi, later imprinting his soul upon it to make his own Zanpakutō. During that time, he eventually became proficient in swordsmanship, and killed numerous opponents. Sometime during this, he, coming upon Yachiru Unohana, fought with her. The fight was the first time he felt fear, and subsequently the first fight he ever enjoyed, having been bored slashing anything else. He subconsciously sealed his power to allow them to fight longer and consequently lost to her. After their fight, he began to admire her, and wanted to fight like her.

Sometime later, as a young man, Zaraki, coming upon a young girl, named her Yachiru, in remembrance of the only person he ever admired, after she showed no fear of his sword. Yachiru came from District 79, Kusajishi, where her parents were murdered, seemingly not too long before Kenpachi arrived. On that day, he took on a name: Kenpachi, the title bestowed upon the strongest Shinigami in every generation, the one who has slain the most enemies and won the most battles.

Later, he had an encounter with Ikkaku Madarame and Yumichika Ayasegawa before they entered Seireitei. Yachiru warned Ikkaku messing with Kenpachi while he was in a good mood was a bad idea, though Ikkaku did not take the warning seriously. When Kenpachi and Ikkaku meet face to face, the latter immediately became alarmed by the former's Reiatsu, but was happy to finally have a real challenge. Kenpachi attacked with enough force to create a crater in the ground under Ikkaku, which somewhat alarmed Yumichika. Due to Kenpachi's strength, Ikkaku was forced on the defensive, holding off Kenpachi's relentless strikes. As the two continued to fight, Ikkaku tried to overwhelm Kenpachi, though he failed in doing so, only succeeding in increasing his own wounds while his opponent remaining untouched by his blade. While Kenpachi mentioned he was having fun, he decided to finish Ikkaku with one quick strike, resulting in his loss of the fight instantly.

Ikkaku became mad Kenpachi would just walk away without finishing him off. Kenpachi, plainly telling him he had no interest in weaklings who could not fight, noted he did not have any obligation to finish Ikkaku off. Ikkaku, thinking he was toying with him, demanded Kenpachi kill him. Kenpachi, losing his patience, grabbed hold of Ikkaku and asked why he was screaming for death if he loved to fight so much. Kenpachi explained to him a philosophy to follow for people like them: "Don't admit defeat and seek death. Die first, then admit defeat. When you lose, but don't die, it just means you were lucky. At those times, think only about survival. Survive, and think only about killing the guy who failed to kill you". Kenpachi, smiling at him, stated it was not like he went easy on him; he was just lucky to escape death. He said Ikkaku should live, come back, and try to kill him again. As Kenpachi went to leave, Ikkaku, asking him his name, is told he is Kenpachi from Zaraki.

Sometime later, Kenpachi killed Kenpachi Kiganjō, the captain of the 11th Division, in a single blow in front of over two hundred members of the Division. As per the 3rd Captain Qualification Trial, Kenpachi became the new captain of that division. By killing the 11th Division captain, he became the official and uncontested holder of the title, Kenpachi, as well as becoming the 11th person to hold the title. Importantly this was the first and only time in the history of the Gotei of someone becoming a Captain through this method, a feat which still strikes fear into the hearts of Kenpachi's enemies.

The following day, during Kenpachi's first addressing of his division, he was greeted by Ikkaku and Yumichika, who had already become Shinigami and joined the division. Ikkaku told Kenpachi he had come back just as he suggested, causing Kenpachi to smile. Later, they were present at the battle of the division against a caterpillar Hollow. While initially the division lost, Ikkaku showed up to fight it, but was stopped by Kenpachi, who decided to kill it himself. After the Hollow was dispatched, more came, prompting Ikkaku and Yumichika to join in the fight. Though at first he was against it, Kenpachi was persuaded upon realizing the two had similar fighting traits, and, as such, would like to fight by his side. After this, Kenpachi allowed them to participate in his fights.

Shortly after joining the Gotei 13 Kenpachi was forced by Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto to learn Kendō because he had not learned any formal swordsmanship training, having bypassed those normally necessary qualifications due to the way he attained his position. Central 46 ordered Yamamoto to stop the training after one day, as they became concerned that if Zaraki realized his full potential and rebelled, he could become an unstoppable force. Kenpachi hated using formal martial arts because his battles would end too quickly with them, so he only used them if his own life was in danger or if it was the only way to defeat an enemy.

Agent of the Shinigami Arc:

Kenpachi and Gin Ichimaru both tease Byakuya Kuchiki about his sister Rukia Kuchiki being sentenced to death, saying he is depressed, as a noble family would not stand to have a criminal as a member. Byakuya, retaliating, says lower-class people do not understand the feelings of nobles. Kenpachi, admitting he does not really, says he is very bright, and since he is so bright, Byakuya should allow him to finish Rukia off before she is executed. When Byakuya states he did not know Kenpachi, at his level, could actually kill people, Kenpachi tells him to try him, and before the two can engage in combat, Gin, stopping Kenpachi, ties him up and drags him away.

Soul Society Arc:

After Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends arrive in Soul Society, Kenpachi tells Ichimaru a captain should have no problem killing a Ryoka. When Kenpachi asks Yamamoto where the Ryoka are heading, an invasion alarm goes off, and Kenpachi runs out of the captains' meeting.

He begins to hunt the strongest Ryoka, but his lieutenant, Yachiru Kusajishi, guides him in the wrong direction for some time. While he is lost, he, coming across the 4th Division's compound, finds and stops Mayuri from "interrogating" his 3rd Seated Officer, Ikkaku Madarame. Once Mayuri leaves, Ikkaku tells Kenpachi the Ryoka he fought is getting stronger, and is fully aware of the captain. Ikkaku tells an excited and curious Kenpachi that the Ryoka's name is Ichigo and what he looks like.

After a while, Kenpachi, having figured out where Ichigo is heading, waits there for him to arrive. While Ichigo, Ganju Shiba, and Hanatarō Yamada run through the Seireitei, they feel Kenpachi's tremendous Reiatsu. As he tries to discern who among the three is the strongest, he finally realizes it is Ichigo. Introducing himself, he tells Ichigo he has come to kill him. As the others, trying get away from his strong Reiatsu, cannot get far, Kenpachi confronts Ichigo. Kenpachi is determined to fight Ichigo no matter what the issue may be, showing himself to be unconcerned with his friends or Rukia's fate. Kenpachi, seeing Ichigo's battle stance, compliments him on it, though noting it has openings, and admits he likes his spiritual pressure. Kenpachi, acknowledging he understands why Ikkaku lost to him, notes Ichigo is still weaker than him, so he decides to give Ichigo a fighting chance. Kenpachi, baring his chest, tells Ichigo to cut him anywhere and not hold back. When Ichigo refuses to attack an unarmed opponent, Kenpachi, while commending him, states it is simply a handicap, and while he appreciates the thought, Ichigo should save his sympathy for someone else. Kenpachi tells him to either kill or be killed.

Ichigo, attacking Kenpachi's exposed chest, causes no injury, much to his confusion. Kenpachi, disappointed, begins to unsheathe his Zanpakutō, and, telling Ichigo it is his turn, asks him to not die too quickly. When Ichigo's hand starts to bleed, Kenpachi, asking him why he is surprised his sword cannot cut him, pushes Ichigo back, using his arm against his blade. Kenpachi, explaining why Ichigo's sword cannot scratch him, takes out his own sword and tells Ichigo he should try, at the very least, to place a dent upon his sword. Ichigo, trying to run away from Kenpachi, cannot seem to shake him, and ends up running into him at every turn. Eventually, Kenpachi, growing bored of chasing after him, sits down. When Ichigo confronts him, he, finally seeming happy, asks if Ichigo is preparing to die or if he is surrendering. Ichigo refuses to do either and, attacking, finally succeeds in injuring Kenpachi. Kenpachi, extremely excited Ichigo can actually injure him, telling Ichigo to keep his spiritual pressure up and not relax, attacks Ichigo.

The two clash and the battle continues, with Kenpachi, while having the upper hand, happy to see Ichigo improving. When Kenpachi comments on how Ichigo is using the sounds of his bells to determine his position, Ichigo asks if he is underestimating him, as he has not released his Zanpakutō. Kenpachi explains his Zanpakutō has no name and, having never had a seal on it, is currently in its true form. As Ichigo, relieved to hear this, attacks once more, Kenpachi, stopping him, further explains his Zanpakutō's state. He, thrusting his Zanpakutō through Ichigo's, breaking right through it, stabs Ichigo in the chest. Kenpachi tells Ichigo he warned him not to relax his spiritual pressure, and it has become weak because he saw a chance to win. He, frustrated the battle was so easy and is now over, retracts his sword. Eventually, much to Kenpachi's surprise, Ichigo gets up, accompanied by a large burst of spiritual pressure. Ichigo, attacking Kenpachi, surprising him further, deals him a serious injury to the left side from his shoulder down the side of his torso. Kenpachi, deflecting Ichigo's next attack, stabs his sword into a nearby building. Kenpachi, beginning to laugh, becoming extremely excited, says now the fight is just getting started, noting they should drag out the fight. He, lunging at Ichigo, lets his face get cut by the blade just to get close to Ichigo. As the battle escalates even more, Kenpachi, despite his injuries, continues to fight, teaching Ichigo the drive behind his personality.

Kenpachi, realizing both he and Ichigo are evenly matched, enjoying the feeling and euphoria of the moment, takes off his eyepatch, noting he considers Ichigo a worthy opponent, so it only makes sense to fight him at full power. Kenpachi's spiritual power skyrockets as he removes his eyepatch, prompting Ichigo to wonder what is going on. Kenpachi, explaining to him what the eyepatch does, takes out his Zanpakutō and, cutting a nearby building in half with a single slash, tells Ichigo he will use all his power to kill him. When Ichigo, increasing his power, greatly impresses Kenpachi, Ichigo, explaining he can do so by borrowing Zangetsu's power and fighting side by side with him, states he will never lose to someone like him, who only fights by himself. Kenpachi asks if Zangetsu is Ichigo's Zanpakutō, fighting side by side with it and borrowing its power, as he finds it ridiculous. He believes Zanpakutō are just tools of war, and fighting side by side with one are words for weak losers who are afraid to fight on their own. They, both releasing their spiritual pressure, run at each other to make a final strike, releasing enough spiritual pressure to collapse all the buildings around them. The battle ends in a draw, with Ichigo falling first apologizing to his friends as Kenpachi looks down on him. With blood shooting out his shoulder, Kenpachi questions Ichigo's apology, calling him stupid as he gives him the victory of the fight before falling down shortly after. As Yachiru calls for Retsu Unohana to heal Kenpachi, Kenpachi tells Yachiru he lost, but needs to pay him back. He, raising his sword, acknowledges he ignored it for a long time and wants it to communicate with it. Kenpachi, not hearing it speak, faints, which scares Yachiru.

During Kenpachi's recovery in his quarters, Yachiru and Makizō Aramaki bring back Orihime Inoue, and he tells her he will help her find Ichigo. Much later on, Orihime guides Kenpachi, Yachiru, Ikkaku, Yumichika Ayasegawa, and Makizō to Ichigo, and finds Yasutora Sado, Uryū Ishida, and Ganju Shiba on the way, freeing them in the process. As they continue to search for Ichigo, Kenpachi realizes they are being followed, and Captains Kaname Tōsen and Sajin Komamura, as well as their respective Lieutenants Shūhei Hisagi and Tetsuzaemon Iba, confront them. Kenpachi tells his subordinates to go ahead without him, but Ikkaku and Yumichika stay behind, eager to fight as well. Though reluctant, Kenpachi accepts their help, and they fight against Hisagi and Tetsuzaemon elsewhere. Kenpachi, battling Captain Komamura and Captain Tōsen, easily fends them off, leading him to goad them into releasing their Bankai. Although Komamura is reluctant to do so, Tōsen obliges, revealing he always had an uneasy feeling about Kenpachi since he became a captain.

When Tōsen releases his Bankai, Kenpachi learns he cannot see, hear, and sense spirit energy. However, he fights off Tōsen with the sense of touch, as he can feel when the blade makes contact with his body. However, Kenpachi, becoming frustrated with this style of fighting, lets Tōsen impale him with his sword. Kenpachi, grabbing hold of Suzumushi's hilt, figures out only by grabbing Suzumushi can he see and hear Tōsen. Before Tōsen can attack him, Kenpachi, grabbing Suzumushi once more, gravely wounds Tōsen, which dispels his Bankai.

As Tōsen tries to retaliate, Komamura blocks a slash from Kenpachi, which shatters his helmet. Kenpachi, revealing he never cared what Komamura looked like (though he was curious), proceeds to fight against him once he releases his Bankai. However, the battle doesn't last long; Komamura, sensing Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto fighting, abandons his fight with Kenpachi. Later, Yumichika tells Kenpachi the result of his battle. Kenpachi, in turn, tells him Komamura ran off. Kenpachi, surprised to see Yumichika with no signs of injury after fighting against Hisagi, begins to question him, but, much to his annoyance, Yumichika begins to talk about beauty. While they do receive Isane Kotetsu's message about Aizen's betrayal, they do not accompany the other captains to Sōkyoku Hill.

A week after the incident with Aizen, Kenpachi finds Ichigo training with Ikkaku on his division's grounds. Seeing his wounds healed completely, Kenpachi tries to fight him again, but Ichigo runs off, and Kenpachi cannot find him. He does not see Ichigo and his friends when they leave Soul Society, telling Yachiru he and Ichigo will certainly meet again because they are the only ones who are what they seem to be.

Arrancar Arc:

When Yamamoto calls him and the other captains for an emergency meeting, Kenpachi complains. Kenpachi appears to Ichigo as his instinct and desire to win, explaining to him they are both the type of people who lived to fight battle after battle. After Orihime is taken to Hueco Mundo, Kenpachi arrives with Byakuya Kuchiki to retrieve Hitsugaya's group and bring them back to Soul Society.

Hueco Mundo Arc:

Kenpachi arrives, alongside Captains Byakuya Kuchiki, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, and Retsu Unohana, in Las Noches after the battle between Ichigo Kurosaki and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez. Kenpachi comes to Ichigo's aid as he blocks an attack by the Arrancar Tesra Lindocruz. As the Arrancar tries to attack again, Kenpachi deals a fatal slash wound down his chest. Finished with Tesra, Kenpachi looks to Nnoitra Gilga to be his next opponent. When Ichigo asks what Kenpachi is doing in Hueco Mundo, he responds by kicking Ichigo, stating he is in the way of the field of battle. Kenpachi reveals Kisuke Urahara was asked by Captain-Commander Yamamoto to send them to Hueco Mundo in preparation for the upcoming battle in Karakura Town. Nnoitra, finally deciding to attack, is blocked, though still impressing Kenpachi with his strike. When Nnoitra asks Kenpachi his name, both men give their name and rank.

As the two opponents continue to fight, Kenpachi, getting close to dealing a fatal blow to Nnoitra, cannot cut through the Espada's skin with his sword. Nnoitra, cutting Kenpachi on his left shoulder, laughs, telling him his Hierro is unsurpassed by any current and former Espada. He tells Kenpachi his blade will never cut him. Kenpachi, undeterred, continues to fight Nnoitra with even more ferocity, much to the Espada's surprise. After Nnoitra dodges an attack, Kenpachi deduces it must have been dangerous for him to dodge it. Dismissing it as a reflex, Nnoitra continues the battle until Kenpachi, saying he has never met an opponent whose eyes and neck cannot be cut, stabs Nnoitra in the eye hidden by his eyepatch. However, Nnoitra, unaffected, reveals the remains of his Hollow mask and hole hidden under his eye patch. The Espada, moving closer, stabs Kenpachi in the chest. After the two argue over Nnoitra's inability to be cut, Kenpachi keeps trying to slice up his opponent. Eventually, Kenpachi cuts Nnoitra, and, fighting fiercer than before, cuts him again, this time cutting off a part of Nnoitra's Zanpakutō. Kenpachi states he has finally gotten use to the strength of Nnoitra's Hierro. The battle carries on until Kenpachi's eye patch is knocked off.

After Kenpachi explains the nature of his eye patch, Nnoitra, in a rage, releases. When Nnoitra asks how it feels to see an Espada release their Zanpakutō for the first time, all he gets in response to his question is a smile from Kenpachi, who tells him he has nice Reiatsu, and it is like the Reiatsu itself is sharpening his blade. Kenpachi, wasting no time, goes on the offensive, but he, surprised when his attacks are blocked, is dealt a grievous wound across his chest. Nnoitra sends Kenpachi flying away from him as he mocks him. Noticing there is no movement from an unresponsive Kenpachi, Nnoitra sets his sights on Yachiru, but Kenpachi, recovering, cuts off one of his arms. When Nnoitra comments on Kenpachi playing dead, Kenpachi says since Nnoitra will just block his attacks with his many arms, he just has to cut them off. However, Nnoitra, mocking Kenpachi, regenerates his arm. Kenpachi, grabbing Nnoitra, slams him into the ground, prompting Nnoitra, reveal his two hidden arms, to stab Kenpachi in the chest.

Nnoitra, generating two more scythe weapons, tells Kenpachi it is over. However, Kenpachi, laughing hysterically, keeps fighting, only to be injured several times. He reluctantly decides to use Kendō, though he admits it has been quite some time since he has used it. When Nnoitra becomes confused, Kenpachi reveals the Captain-Commander made him learn it when he first joined the Gotei 13, but he never liked it. When he asks Nnoitra if he knows a sword is far more powerful when you use two hands instead of one, Nnoitra, becoming bored with the conversation, charges at Kenpachi, who, gripping his sword with both hands, swings it down. Kenpachi lands a very powerful blow, dealing Nnoitra a lethal wound to his chest, severing a few of his limbs, and almost cutting him in half. Surprised the Espada is still alive, he turns to walk away. When Nnoitra yells at him, asking where he is going as the fight is not over, Kenpachi explains he does not know what he is talking about, as the blow finished him and he is not about to be bothered with finishing someone off who cannot fight back. Undeterred, Nnoitra, getting up, tells him the fight is not over, taunting him to come back and continue fighting. As Nnoitra moves to attack him, Kenpachi, giving in, lands another blow to his chest, and Nnoitra falls to the ground. Kenpachi, standing over Nnoitra's corpse, victorious, thanks him for the good fight.

Kenpachi, asking Ichigo what he is, reminds him he, as a Substitute Shinigami, must protect Karakura Town. He tells Ichigo to take Orihime and return, as he is no longer needed in Hueco Mundo. He, telling Ichigo to get his sword, yells for Orihime to come over and heal him. However, Coyote Starrk, arriving, recaptures her, narrowly avoiding both Kenpachi's and Ichigo's attack in the process. When Ichigo hears from Aizen he plans to destroy Karakura Town, he proceeds to run off. Kenpachi, telling him not to be so hasty, reveals everything is planned, and Urahara not only sent the captains to Hueco Mundo, but made it possible to wage war in Karakura Town. When Ichigo notices Ulquiorra near Orihime, he, reminding Kenpachi of their earlier conversation, informs him he is wrong. Telling Kenpachi his job is not to protect Karakura Town, but instead to protect his friends, Ichigo takes off, leaving Kenpachi behind.

Fake Karakura Town Arc:

Later, Kenpachi, alongside Byakuya Kuchiki, arrives at the battle between Yammy Llargo and Ichigo. After Byakuya attacks Yammy with Sōkatsui, Kenpachi cuts off one of Yammy's legs, making him fall over. He, berating Byakuya for "stealing" the first blow, tells him to get away from the battle area. Byakuya, calmly calling his statement nonsense, since he was the first to arrive, states Kenpachi should learn his place. Kenpachi, ignoring Byakuya, tells him not to complain if he get sliced into pieces alongside Yammy.

As Kenpachi tells Ichigo he is a disgrace, as he seems to get "beat to hell" everywhere they go, he tells him to move out of the way. When Ichigo, confused, stares at him, Kenpachi goes to strike at him, but Ichigo, dodging, screams at him, saying he could have killed him. As Kenpachi charges at Ichigo, he, slapped away by Yammy, is sent flying into a nearby structure. As Yammy rants and raves, Kenpachi kicks a large piece of rock at him, but the Espada crushes it to rubble before it can make contact. Kenpachi, stating he is surprised Yammy can throw a decent punch when he wants to, as he barely felt it when he hit him, tells Yammy even though he must think he is a big fly, if he is going to punch him, he better put some effort into it. Yammy, enraged, attacks Kenpachi.

As Yammy tries to punch him, Kenpachi cuts off three of his fingers. Yammy, screaming in pain, holding his injured hand, notices Kenpachi on his arm, which he runs up to strike at his head. Kenpachi cuts off another of Yammy's legs, causing the Espada to fall down. Kenpachi, admitting he is a tough one, is disappointed as Yammy lies unconscious, prompting him to call Byakuya to finish the Espada off. When Byakuya asks him what he is talking about, Kenpachi states he figures Byakuya must be bored standing around, so he figures he would at least allow him to finish the Espada off. When Byakuya, deducing Kenpachi expects him to clean up his mess, asks who he thinks he is talking to, Kenpachi states he does not like to kill weaklings. When Byakuya states he will not, as a savage like him is better suited to the task, Kenpachi takes offense, but before he can do anything about it, Yammy, making his presence known by confirming he is not down for the count yet, slams his large hand down in between the two. The two captains look up at Yammy as he prepares to fire a Cero at them. As the large blast is fired, they both dodge the attack, prompting Byakuya to state he cannot believe Kenpachi thought he could finish off the Espada the way he did, pitying his poor judgment. Kenpachi, brushing the comment off, states to him, Yammy is ready to be finished off, but the Espada is obviously too much for Byakuya. Byakuya, releasing his Bankai, tells Kenpachi if Yammy is not too much for him, he should prove it. Kenpachi, liking this idea, states he has always wanted to compete against Byakuya. As the two captains move toward each other, they turn toward Yammy, stating he is in the way, and lash out, hitting the Espada in his face.

Yammy's huge form is knocked off balance by the powerful attack from the two captains, but he, surviving, gets back up, injured and infuriated. Kenpachi states he is surprised Yammy survived, believing he has lost his mind. As the Cero Espada becomes frustrated with the two captains, his Resurrección changes form. After transforming, he warns the captains making him angrier is the last thing they want to do, since his release, Ira, increases in strength the angrier he becomes. He, taunting Byakuya and Kenpachi, says if they make him even angrier, he will make sure their deaths are humiliating and painful.

Later, after defeating Yammy, Kenpachi is accompanied by Byakuya as they exit a Garganta. He is greeted by a few of the 11th Division. The 4th Division, immediately responding to their arrival, note while both are standing, they are horribly injured. When asked by his men how the battle was, Kenpachi states it was boring. After having his injuries treated, Kenpachi, along with Byakuya and Shunsui, is called to meet with Yamamoto, who scolds them for losing their captain haori. When each of them are indifferent to the matter, Kenpachi saying his was a bother, Yamamoto grows even angrier.

Post-Canon Arc:

Zaraki, like most of his Gotei comrades, participated in the Ender War and World War 3, their contributions helping to protect Soul Society and Earth from total devastation. For four hundred years he has continued to search for powerful enemies to battle, occasionally meeting individuals whom could be called worthy adversaries. Much of his time spent over the time between World War 3 and modern day consisted of two basic things: Fighting, and being lost. Unfortunately without the simple structure of Seireitei and the Gotei to keep him somewhat on track, Zaraki fell prey to his directional inability. While as an individual he didn't progress much during this time, the multitude of fights and challenges he partook in kept his bloodthirsty cravings at bay for a while.

Eventually though, Zaraki retook his position as Eleventh Division Captain of the Gotei Thirteen. One of the most impactful situations he took part in as Captain during this time was the battle and execution of one Aramand Armageddus, Vice Captain of the Tenth Division. Apparently as part of a challenge issued by the latter, the two battled within the confines of the Eleventh Division barracks. While the fight went back and forth a bit, albeit with Zaraki always in the driver's seat, Aramand quickly took it upon himself to foolishly cause as much collateral damage as possible. Due to this, and due to his own misjudging of his strength, Zaraki Kenpachi cut the man in half from shoulder to hip remorselessly, instantly killing the arrogant challenger. Afterwards, he intelligently dealt with his fallen foe's large energy attack by having his eye patch eat it, saving the surrounding areas from untimely destruction. Interestingly, he received basically no backlash from his peers for executing a Vice Captain due to the man's arrogant and reckless actions in their fight.

During the Demon Incursion arc, Zaraki Kenpachi fought off Nozomi Sumashou for a short time and inflicted worthwhile injuries to the woman. However before things could get really interesting, an explosion resulted in Zaraki ending up far away from the conflict. By the time he reached the battleground, the situation was already over and he was left frustrated and annoyed at how things turned out.

Eventually, after leaving the Gotei Thirteen again, Zaraki met and battled a man named Li Qiang who claimed he was a member of Sugiuran Royalty. Apparently as a test of his strength, the man challenged Zaraki to a one versus one duel in Rukongai. This fight was, at first, entertaining for both warriors. Li Qiang seemed impressed by what Soul Society offered, while Zaraki used it as a fun warm up to get the rust off. Eventually though as the latter used more and more of his strength, the duel began petering out due to the difference in power. While the Sugiura King got a few good licks in, Zaraki overwhelmed the man and cut him down. However, this moment didn't end pitifully. No, it ended on a positive note. Zaraki told the man to focus up and get stronger, and when he does he can come back and the two can clash again. Meanwhile his opponent unlocked a power sealed deep within him, resulting in a satisfactory conclusion for them both.

Most recently, Zaraki Kenpachi found himself in the city of Orange Walk Town in Belize, Central America. This was due to him joining forces with his Gotei comrades and assaulting the Monsuta as they tried to connect their Mexican and South American territories. After clearing through the Monsuta soldiers like a hot knife through butter, Zaraki came into conflict with a commander named Tetsuya Tachibana. This fight, more than any other in recent memory, provided plenty of entertainment and fun for Kenpachi. He finally met an opponent both powerful and dedicated enough to challenge him. During this fight both warriors tested their limits. With his eye patch still on, Zaraki fought the Monsuta commander using both his Shikai and Hollow powers. While the two went back and forth for a while, eventually the Vizard revealed his Bankai and Zaraki removed his eye patch. However, the latter was merely an accident. The removal of the eye patch eliminated the enjoyment for Zaraki, who immediately overpowered his foe's Bankai and sought to end the battle, which occurred a few moments later.

» Roleplay Sample:

Chunks of wood and stone coated the enormous body of a man sticking halfway through a house's wall, a family of three looking in his direction with shock plastered across their faces. Though emergency alerts had been ringing all throughout Soul Society at this point, these people certainly didn't expect a man more infamous than even the Gotei's enemies to come crashing through their home. The grating sinister voice mumbling obscenities from within a cloud of dust made it easy to identify him as the one and only Zaraki Kenpachi, an ex-Captain usually described as killing intent personified. From his perspective the reason why he was here, over a kilometer away from the action, was he'd made a mistake. By leaving himself open he'd allowed himself to be sent flying by his opponent. Zaraki didn't care so much about having made the mistake, he was just annoyed by what it had resulted in.

Two opposing thoughts were currently running through his mind: First, he was excited by his enemy's incredible power; Second, his opponent was a bitch for removing him from the fight. Damn I was really starting to have fun. For a second he just stared up at the sky, temporarily lamenting the fact his battle had been cut short. This moment too was interrupted as the man of the household he'd crashed into began speaking before immediately being cut off by the legendary Shinigami, who began looking around and apparently ignoring the words which escaped nervously from his lips. Following this he stood up and hopped through the hole in a wall his collision had created, not bothering to dust himself off. Strangely enough despite the very clear trajectory through buildings he'd taken to get here, Zaraki ran off in the opposite direction.

For almost twenty minutes Zaraki ran in a straight line from his landing position, almost entirely opposite from where he wanted to go. His route led him even farther away from his fight, a reality still unknown to the eyepatch-wearing Shinigami. It wasn't until another Gotei member ran by him going in a different direction did Zaraki reassess the path he'd chosen to take. "Are you running away?!" Taken by surprise the lower seated man turned and responded with fear in his voice. "Oh! S-sir! No sir, I'm going to help fight off the demons attacking this way!" Zaraki ran ahead of the soldier, not waiting for him to keep up. By this point the fighting had already been going on for quite some time so any minute wasted was time that could be spent looking for a worthy enemy to kill. The incredible strength of Zaraki's legs kept him moving extremely quickly through the Rukongai's streets as nearby civilians breathed sighs of relief in knowing he was in the fight.

With a better idea of where to go he didn't let anything slow him down, including random demon soldiers rampaging throughout the districts of Seireitei's outskirts. Not even bothering to look twice at the various attackers Zaraki would cut through them like a hot knife through butter, carving a bloody path to get to stronger enemies. Even the commander and elite demons leading entire platoons of soldiers didn't stand a chance against the beast of Soul Society, barely registering on his radar before being slaughtered where they stood. Upon meeting a particularly large group of demon warriors, who had gathered to hunt down Shinigami, Zaraki shouted out as he tore through the rows of enemies. "Out of my way!" A single downward swing of his cracked and chipped Zanpakuto brought ruin to the entire regiment of invaders, the force of his attack so high gusts of wind sent any remaining foes flying through the sky before falling to their death.

Wanting a better vantage point as he ran Zaraki pushed off the ground and leapt close to twenty meters into the air before resuming his sprint atop the roofs of buildings. From here Zaraki could see destruction wrought by the invaders in every direction, though there was a distinct lack of combatants around him. For just a second Zaraki was annoyed by the potentiality of battle already winding down, the worst possible scenario for a man who's only real wish was fighting powerful warriors and reveling in glorious bloodstained battle. By the time he reached the largest nearby battlefield the only people standing were Fourth Division healers running to and fro trying to find and help as many survivors as possible. Somehow in a direct invasion into Soul Society, he was the only one unscathed. This well and truly pissed Zaraki off. A few seconds later the emergency alert sounds died down, indicating all serious fighting was over and all that was left was mopping up the random fodder still in Soul Society, a directive Zaraki was keen on ignoring. "Tsk. Didn't even get to see what she could do." Figuring he couldn't help out with the after effects of the invasion, and more importantly not wanting to, Zaraki spent the next hour and a half trying to find his way back to the old Eleventh Division barracks to take his afternoon nap. Battle had come and gone, leaving Zaraki Kenpachi feeling nothing but disappointment. Next time things would be different.

END OF THE POST

I may be a bit inactive, which may be rectified soon, but I never said I quit. All I did was leave the Discord server.
