Number 10

This is the Bankai of Mayuri Kurotsuchi who is the captain of the 12th squad and is also the president of the Shinigami Research Institute. The bankai is a caterpillar with a babies head, It follows mayuri's command. The caterpillar breathes poisonous gas of Mayuri's blood. Which is dangerous to anyone who breathes it except mayuri and nemu his lieutenant and even if the other person doesn't it will still go inside him. The gas can spread to nearly 200 meters around the caterpillar. The poisonous gas is very deadly as it breaks down the bodies it affects very fast. Mayuri used against Szayelaporro an Espada and his body started to breakdown immediately. Mayuri can also change the composition of the poison so that no one can create an antidote against it. The bankai can also produce swords from his body piercing anyone who comes near. It also has another form which mayuri modified which is called Matai Fukuin Shotai then it turns into a massive baby. The only weakness of this bankai is that the person affected by the poison can counteract it by using enough reiatsu(spirit energy). Mayuri has also modified it so that if it were to ever attack him it would self-destruct and return to it's sealed state.

First any wound Kyoraku has inflicted on his body will appear on his opponent's body and vice versa. Then black spots start to appear on his opponent's body causing them to bleed a lot. Then both of them go underwater and then they both remain in it until one of them runs out of reiatsu and dies. The last level is when his opponent has a thread near their throat which cut their head off.

But you can't see the flames when he cuts. One of his bankai abilities is when his body heat reaches up and beyond 15 million degrees making it impossible for his opponents touch him while he uses his bankai. He can also call the dead bodies of everyone who died by his flames to fight for him.
