Yhwach, who appears in “Bleach”‘s “Thousand-Year Blood War,” is the founder of the Quincy and was such a powerful enemy that Ichigo Kurosaki lost his will to fight. Here we will introduce the techniques and abilities used by Yhwach in “BLEACH”. Also included is a discussion of Yhwach’s true identity.
|What is Yhwach?
In the Thousand-Year Blood War of “Bleach,” the final enemy, Yhwach, attacked the Soul Society. Many Shinigami lost their lives to this unprecedentedly powerful foe. Here we introduce Yhwach’s profile and personality.
Yhwach is the leader of a Quincy group called Wandenreich, the founder of Quincy and called “Your Majesty” by Wandenreich’s men. Yhwach was not named by his parents, but by people who called him “YHVH. YHVH” is the name of the Creator of the universe, which people believe in.
Yhwach was born blind, deaf, mute, and unable to move his arms and legs. Yet Yhwach knew that even as a baby, he could live, because he had the ability to give souls. Yet Yhwach knew that he could live on as a baby, because he had the ability to give his soul. All people had to do was touch the baby Yhwach, and the lame would grow legs, and the lonely would have their hearts filled.
Because of this ability, he was revered as a god. However, Yhwach would take away the abilities of those whose souls he shared with when they died. Thus, they gained sight, hearing, etc., and can now move their bodies freely. This ability to give has allowed Yhwach to live for over 1000 years.
What is the personality of the strongest Yhwach?
Yhwach is often regarded as absolutely evil, but in fact he was only fighting to free himself from the fear of death. He has also said that he does not like to fight. Perhaps for this reason, not everyone was hostile to Yhwach, and Komamura Sajin’s grandfather, a member of the Beast Tribe, did not fear the collapse of the world, saying, “It will only change the bearers of the world.
Yhwach, however, was arrogant and did not like killing, yet he killed many Shinigami and Quincy. He is a man of means and will kill without mercy, even his own people, if he deems them unnecessary.
Some of the Quincy who witnessed Yhwach’s “Auswählen” in the Thousand-Year Blood War died mourning their betrayal. Because of this characterization, even if Yhwach is released from death and becomes the next world-bearer, he may not be able to live in peace.
Ability to incorporate Soul King
Yhwach took in the Soul King in order to collapse the world, because the Soul King was the entity that divided the world into three parts, Hell, this world, and Soul Society, and maintained the balance. At first, he did not intend to bring in the Soul King, but after the Soul King was killed, Mimihagi took his place to support the world, and the collapse temporarily stopped. Mimihagi then tried to bring Yhwach, who was trying to get close to the Soul King, into the world.
Yhwach, however, squeezed Mimihagi and took him into his body. Yhwach then decided to absorb the Soul King, and the power of the Soul King, which had been sealed inside Yhwach’s body, flowed out and attacked Shinigami and the others. Thus, Yhwach had the power to take in the Soul King as well.
Yhwach and Shinigami
The conflict between Yhwach and Shinigami dates back almost 1000 years to the main story of “Bleach,” when the Shinigami could not ignore the existence of Quincy, who had the power to completely annihilate Hollow. A war between Quincy and the Shinigami broke out 1000 years ago, in which Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, in his prime, was able to defeat Yhwach without exerting all of his strength.
However, by not completely killing Yhwach at that time, Yhwach gained even more power through “Auswählen,” and the world that is not dying today collapsed. He then attacked the Soul Society and killed the Soul King in order to collapse the current world and create a world without death.
In this article, we will introduce in detail the strength and ability of Yhwach, the overwhelmingly strong person who appeared as the last boss of “Bleach,” Yhwach’s last moments, and his relationship with Shinigami and others. Please read to the end.
|Relationship between Yhwach and Shinigami
Yhwach fought many Shinigami in the “Bleach” Thousand-Year Blood War. Here are some of the Shinigami who were involved with Yhwach during the “Thousand-Year Blood War”.
Relationship with Ichigo Kurosaki
Ichigo Kurosaki is a person born into the Yhwach bloodline and is a mixed bloodline Quincy. He did not know this at all, but in fact his mother, Masaki Kurosaki, was a pure-blooded Quincy. And Yhwach is also an enemy to Ichigo Kurosaki because the “Auswählen” that Yhwach performed 9 years ago was one of the causes of Masaki Kurosaki’s death.
What is Ichigo Kurosaki?
Ichigo Kurosaki is the main character in “BLEACH” and was an ordinary high school student except for his high Reiatsu. However, after meeting Rukia Kuchiki, he awakens the power of Shinigami. He has a strong face that could be mistaken for a delinquent, but he is a man with a strong desire to protect others.
Episode with Ichigo Kurosaki
There was a part of Yhwach’s soul in Kurosaki Ichigo, a mixed blood Quincy. Ichigo Kurosaki was taken advantage of and manipulated in front of the Soul King. In the end, Yhwach took away the power of Quincy, as well as his inner Hollow. Still, not giving up, Ichigo Kurosaki fights against Aizome Sosuke and Ishida Uryu and wins the battle against Yhwach.
Relationship with Aizen Sosuke
In the “Bleach” Thousand-Year Blood War, Yhwach had noticed Aizen Sousuke’s power and invited him to join his team as a special strength during the first invasion.
About Aizen Sousuke
Aizen Sousuke was the former captain of Gotei 13 Fifth Squadron. He killed Central 46 and severely injured his former subordinate Hinamori Momo in order to steal the Hōgyoku in Kuchiki Rukia. He is similar to Yhwach in that he uses his subordinates for his own ends and easily dismisses them.
Episode with Aizen Sousuke
Aizen Sousuke refused Yhwach’s invitation and fought on Shinigami’s side. Ten years later, still bound to Muma, he sensed the disappearance of Yhwach’s residue.
|Relationship with Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto
The relationship between Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto and Yhwach goes back 1000 years; it was Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto who sealed Yhwach in the war against Quincy 1000 years ago. Yhwach knew the first Gotei 13 captain because he had actually fought him.
What is Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto.
Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto is the commander and general commander of the 13th Gotei, and is still considered the most powerful to this day. Yhwach is a man who takes the lives of his subordinates lightly.
Episode with Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto
Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto would go head-to-head in the Thousand-Year Blood War in “Bleach”; unlike 1000 years ago, he had lost one arm in his battle with Aizen Sousuke, but he overpowered him with his Bankai.
However, it was not Yhwach but Lloyd Lloyd. The real Yhwach took Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto’s bankai and finally cut it in two, killing him.
The Thousand-Year Blood War in Bleach features an enemy named Yhwach, who looks exactly like the Zanpakutō “Zangetsu” embodied in Ichigo Kurosaki’s spirit world. This article summarizes the relationship between Yhwach and “Zangetsu” and discusses its true identity.
|What are Yhwach’s capabilities and strength?
Yhwach in “Bleach” was born with special abilities. Here are some details about Yhwach’s abilities and strength.
Yhwach’s ability 1) “The Almighty”.
Yhwach has “The Almighty” ability. He used it in the Thousand-Year Blood War in “Bleach” when he fought Ichibē Hyōsube and Ichigo Kurosaki.
In the battle with Ichibē Hyōsube, he was initially overwhelmed, but the moment he activated “The Almighty” ability, Ichibē Hyōsube’s body was torn apart. He is strong enough to defeat Ichibē Hyōsube, who is considered the oldest and strongest, in an instant.
The Almighty Overview
The main ability of “The Almighty” is to predict the future. It can see into the future by increasing the number of eyes. In addition, he can nullify all the abilities he sees with his multiple eyes. However, the Soul King is superior in the ability to foresee the future, and it was not possible to interfere with the Soul King’s future.
However, after absorbing the Soul King, he is now able to see not only the future that will happen, but also multiple futures, and is able to make choices and changes. For example, when he broke Ichigo Kurosaki’s zanpakutō, he chose the future in which the zanpakutō was broken and made it a reality.
Yhwach’s ability 2) “inherent ability”.
Yhwach’s inherent ability is the ability to give part of one’s soul. The ability can be given simply by touching the body. However, the price for this is that the person to whom the part of his soul is given will live a short life. Even so, in the past, Yhwach was worshipped as a god who rescues those who hang on to him. The “Schrift” is a more enhanced version of the ability to give a part of one’s soul.
The Sternritter was inscribed with the word “Schrift” and each letter gave the ability directly to the soul of the person to whom it was given. This was a more powerful method than giving by touch alone; the “Schrift” was inscribed by taking Yhwach’s blood cup into the body. The person on whom the “Schrift” is inscribed is then able to use the abilities of that letter. This ability also seems to be part of “The Almighty’s” ability.
Inherent Ability and Quincy Ancestry Relationships
Yhwach is said to be the originator of Quincy and can control Quincy’s behavior by injecting his Reiatsu into Quincy. In the “Bleach” episode “Thousand-Year Blood War,” he used his Reiatsu to control the Quincy blood flowing in Ichigo Kurosaki to kill the Soul King.
Also, since Quincy and his friends all have Yhwach’s blood in them, there is a risk that one day they will suddenly be stripped of their powers. Although he did not use many Quincy-like abilities in the play, he can interfere with Quincy who have Yhwach blood flowing through their veins in this way.
Which is stronger, The Almighty or Kyouka Suigetsu?
Fans of “Bleach” often debate whether “The Almighty” or “Kyouka Suigetsu” is stronger. This is because Aizen Sousuke once drove Yhwach into the ground with “Kyouka Suigetsu” in the movie. Here is a summary of the discussion on which is stronger.
Compare with Kyouka Suigetsu
Kyouka Suigetsu” is able to deceive his opponents with “full hypnosis”, and Aizen Sousuke was trying to find out if Kyouka Suigetsu’s hypnosis could even interfere with Yhwach’s predictions of the future in his fight against Yhwach. When he fought with Ichigo Kurosaki, Aizen Sousuke interfered with Yhwach’s predictions of the future, creating the illusion that Ichigo Kurosaki had hypnotized him to see Abarai Renji.
Yhwach thought he had seen through the hypnosis and penetrated Ichigo Kurosaki’s body, but it was Aizen Sousuke, not Ichigo Kurosaki, who, because of his ability to see everything, could not see that he had been hypnotized even into foreseeing the future. This is why it is said that the ability of “Kyouka Suigetsu” may exceed that of Yhwach’s “The Almighty”.
What is Kyouka Suigetsu used by Aizen Sousuke?
Aizen Sousuke’s “Kyouka Suigetsu” has the ability to “fully hypnotize” an opponent who shows the Shikai state. The only drawback is that the hypnosis does not work on those who touch the blade of “Kyouka Suigetsu” before activating it. Also, hypnosis does not work on those who cannot see. It is said that it is reckless to confront “Kyouka Suigetsu” without knowing its weakness.
Giselle Gewelle’s ability “The Zombie” and strength in “BLEACH” have attracted the attention of “BLEACH” fans. Since they are also concerned about her gender, zombification, and weaknesses, we will introduce various things about Giselle Gewelle, the remarkable Quincy of “BLEACH” in this article.
|The identity or mystery of Yhwach?
Yhwach is the founder of Quincy. To find out who exactly he is, here is a summary of Yhwach’s identity and a discussion of his true identity.
Yhwach’s identity is related to “Wandenreich”.
Yhwach is the leader of Wandenreich, which consists of Quincy, but when he ruled Hueco Mundo he also had Arrancar under his control.
Adored by Quincy
Yhwach is feared by Arrancar and Quincy, who have made him their subordinate. He is feared by the Arrancar and the Quincy, because if they do not like him, they will kill him without mercy. However, he is also loved by the Sternritter in the Wandenreich.
Mystery #1: Cold personality
Yhwach has a cold disposition toward his subordinates. He does not seem to want to kill people very much, but he does not choose the means to an end. Therefore, Buzz Bee and Ryugen Ishida, despite being Quincy, wanted to take revenge on Yhwach.
Yhwach’s cold nature caused him to be resented by some of the Quincy who were supposed to be his friends. Yhwach’s cold nature earned him the enmity of some Quincy, who were supposed to be his friends.
Mystery #2: Sternritter the way he fights as a soldier as well.
In the Thousand-Year Blood War in Bleach, he fought as a member of Sternritter in the first invasion. He was fighting Lloyd Lloyd, who was almost mimicking the form of Yhwach, but ended up in Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto and fought Ichigo Kurosaki. In the second invasion, Yhwach left the fighting in Seireitei to Sternritter and immediately went after the Soul King’s palace.
Mystery #3: Ichigo Kurosaki’s Zangetsu
When Yhwach first appeared in “Bleach,” his resemblance to “Zangetsu” was much talked about. This is because the man who claimed to be “Zangetsu” in Ichigo Kurosaki’s spiritual world was in fact a part of Yhwach’s soul. This revelation came to light when Ichigo Kurosaki was training with Ōetsu Nimaiya at the Soul King’s Palace.
It turned out that Ichigo Kurosaki had chosen “asadachi” and that part of Yhwach’s soul was pretending to be “Zangetsu” while Ōetsu Nimaiya was striking the sword. The true identity of Zangetsu is a fusion of a part of Yhwach’s soul and his inner Hollow, but the part of Yhwach’s soul that separated the inner Hollow and intentionally set it against Ichigo Kurosaki.
In Bleach, there is a character named Askin Nakk Le Vaar, who belongs to the Wandenreich “Sternritter” and appears only in the last chapter of the original story. In this article, we will introduce you to Askin Nakk Le Vaar, his strength and abilities, as well as his divine venom.
|List of Yhwach’s techniques
Yhwach used many techniques in his fight in the Thousand-Year Blood War in “Bleach”. Here are some of the techniques Yhwach used.
Technique 1: “Sankt Bogen”
Sankt Bogen” is a technique in which a giant arrow appears; Yhwach was nearly knocked out of the Soul King’s palace by “Senri Tsūtenshō” during a battle with Ichibē Hyōsube. He then fired this technique at himself from below and returned to the Soul King’s palace with the arrow that had shot him.
Technique 2: “Auswählen”
Auswählen” is the ability to take Quincy’s power and give it to others. 9 years ago, Yhwach performed “Auswählen” mainly on the mixed blood Quincy, which resulted in the deaths of Masaki Kurosaki and Kae Katagiri. And in the main story, the death of the SS led to the “Auswählen” against the Quincy fighting in the Shatoro Spiritual Court. He then shared his power with the SS and brought them back to life.
Technique 3: “Sankt Altar”
Sankt Altar” is a technique that causes a pentagram of light to appear and take away an opponent’s abilities. It was used by Ichibē Hyōsube in the “Bleach” Thousand-Year Blood War, but his ability prevented it. Lloyd Lloyd is said to have died as a result of this technique.
Technique 4: “Blut Vene Anhaben”
Blut Vene Anhaben” is a technique that can erode the parts of the body it touches; Quincy can use “Blut Vene” to affect only his own body, but this technique affects the outside of his body as well. In the film, Quincy attempted to take out the left half of Ichibē Hyōsube’s body with this technique, but the technique itself was pushed back.
In Kubo Taito’s very popular Japanese manga “Bleach,” there is a character named Ishida Uryu. Uryu Ishida is a member of Shinigami’s enemy Quincy and appears frequently in the manga. This article summarizes Uryu Ishida’s abilities and strength, as well as his relationship with Ichigo Kurosaki and his battle scenes.
|The story behind Yhwach’s capabilities
Because Yhwach’s ability in “Bleach” is the greatest enemy in the play, there are many whispers about his backstory. Here is a summary of the backstory about Yhwach’s abilities.
Yhwach is an urban legend character.
Yhwach is sometimes treated as an urban legend character because of his overwhelming strength. In particular, there are various urban legends about the true nature of Yhwach’s ability as a Quincy. One of these urban legends is that Yhwach is a type of Hollow. This is because the abilities that Yhwach shares with humans are similar to the powers of Hollow.
Yhwach has a variety of abilities, but it is said that his innate ability to give people a part of his soul is similar to the power of the Hollow. And with the abilities taken away, Yhwach gained sight and hearing.
But if the power supply is no longer available, the Yhwach loses everything and cannot even move. This ability is similar to the cannibalistic nature of Hollows: Menos Grande gains its power through repeated cannibalism, and when it becomes an ajuskas, it must eat other Hollows or lose its ability.
Cannibalism is also similar to Yhwach, who kills Quincy to gain power. However, Yhwach’s form is different from Arrancar’s and it does not have zanpakutō, and because it is more human-like than Arrancar and has Hollow characteristics, there are whispers of an urban legend that Yhwach is a child born between a Hollow and a human. Yhwach is a child born of a Hollow and a human being.
The theory that he was afraid of Ichigo Kurosaki
Although Yhwach was able to overpower Ichigo Kurosaki in the “Bleach” Thousand-Year Blood War, it is said that he actually considered Ichigo Kurosaki’s existence to be dangerous, because Ichigo Kurosaki possessed the powers of Shinigami, Hollow, Perfect Art, and Quincy. He was born with more power than the Soul King, who had the power of Shinigami, Hollow, Perfect Art, and Quincy.
In addition to that, the reason why a part of Yhwach’s soul in Kurosaki Ichigo in the spirit world called itself “Zangetsu” was to keep him away from danger. It is said that although it was a statement as if he was protecting Ichigo Kurosaki, he was actually controlling his ability on purpose because he saw its power as dangerous.
In that case, however, a part of Yhwach’s soul would not have told him about the real “zangetsu” until the end. However, in the play, a part of Yhwach’s soul and his inner Hollow often gave hints that “two are one”. Eventually he was able to bend over and merge the power of Quincy and Hollow, so it does not seem that he was taking power away from Ichigo Kurosaki because he was afraid of him.
Was the murder of the Soul King to fulfill an ambition?
The reason why Yhwach attacked the Soul Society in the “Bleach” Thousand-Year Blood War was to fulfill his ambition of killing the Soul King and destroying the world to eliminate the boundary between life and death. In other words, the goal was to remake the world. This objective was only known to the SS. To fulfill this ambition, he performed the “Auswählen” and deprived other Quincy of their power.
In “Bleach” there is a character named Ishida Ryugen. He is the father of Uryu Ishida, who is also a Quincy. He is not on good terms with his son, Uryu Ishida, and hates Quincy, but he actually has a purpose. This article summarizes Ishida Ryugen’s purpose and his relationship with Yhwach.
|Who is the voice actor for Yhwach? And the actor for the live-action version.
The “Bleach” animated series “Thousand-Year Blood War” has not yet aired, with production of the anime announced for 2020. However, the anime of “BLEACH” already depicts Yhwach as “Zangetsu. In the game “BLEACH Brave Souls,” the same voice actor as “Zangetsu” has been cast as Yhwach. Here are some predictions for Yhwach’s voice actor and the actor for the live-action version.
Yhwach is voiced by Takayuki Sugo
Yhwach’s voice actor in “BLEACH” is Takayuki Sugo. He has appeared in the anime “BLEACH” since 2004, when “Zangetsu” first appeared.
Profile of Takayuki Sugo
Takayuki Sugo, who played the role of Yhwach in Bleach, is a male voice actor born on August 1, 1952. Originally a member of the Bungakuza theater troupe and a stage actor, he later became a dubbing voice actor for movies, which led him to voice acting.
Takayuki Sugo’s major motion pictures
Takayuki Sugo’s major film credits include the roles of Sente Hashiruma in “Naruto Shippuden,” Gudchi Dobo in “Baki,” Yoshimura in “Tokyo Ghouls,” Okita Juzo in “Space Battleship Yamato 2199,” Shiryu in “ONEPIECE,” and Rinirudo in “Hell Girl.
Final chapter “Thousand-Year Blood War” will be animated, and will the voice actors be the same?
After appearing in “BLEACH Brave Souls,” Takayuki Sugo also appeared as Yhwach in a video announcing the 20th anniversary of the animated adaptation of “Bleach: Blood War. This suggests that Takayuki Sugo will be playing the role of Yhwach in the anime as well.
|Yhwach’s reputation and popularity in the world volume
Yhwach in “Bleach” is regarded as the most powerful ruthless boss in the “Weekly Shonen Jump” manga. He can predict the future and take away abilities, so even Ichigo Kurosaki could not win without the “Silver of Stillness”. Aizen Sousuke is often compared to Yhwach’s strength among the characters in “Bleach,” and while Aizen Sousuke is still partially sealed, he did a good job of temporarily disabling Yhwach in battle. Furthermore, Aizen Sousuke did not use Bankai even once in the play. This has led some to believe that Aizen Sousuke is stronger than Yhwach.
At the beginning of the Thousand-Year Blood War in “Bleach,” some Shinigami wondered why they had to fight Quincy. However, Yhwach’s goal was not revenge against Shinigami or the elimination of Hollow, but the collapse of the world.
The collapse of the world is explained by Rukia in the Shinigami’s Acting Arc in “BLEACH”. It is said that the confrontation with Quincy may have been considered at that time.
Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto in “BLEACH” is the commander of the powerful Gotei 13, known for his overwhelming strength. Fans are also interested in his younger episodes and zanpakutō, so let’s take a look at the Bankai, youth, and death of Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, the Gotei 13 commander-in-chief in “BLEACH.
