How strong is Kisuke Urahara(The true power of Urahara)

Updated on November 30, 2009

Kisuke Urahara

This is Kisuke Urahara, former captain of the 12th Division more than a hundred years ago. He became a captain with the help of the one and only woman of his life, Yoruichi Shihoin. Hiyori Sarugaki was his lieutenant who hated him for taking the place of his predecessor. His time of being a captain was very brief as he was accused of experimenting on hollows and shinigamis by the process of shinigamification and hollowfication, something that is strictly forbidden in the Soul Society though it was something he had nothing to do with and was actually Aizen's doing. He would receive the punishment of his power being drained from his body, thus reducing him to a puny human, and be vanished to the human world to live there as an ordinary human and eventually die as a mere mortal by a natural cause. However, with the help of Yoruichi, Kisuke along with Tessai and the Vizards were able to escape to the human world and lived there as they were, without their powers being taken away from them.

Kisuke is one of the main protagonists of the series. He rarely loses his cool no matter what the situation is. Although he doesn't always get himself involved in most battles, he will always be there to save his comrades that are in the brink of death, like he did when Rangiku Matsumoto's tits were about to be pierced by Luppi and when Yammy was pounding Ichigo to death. Assisting Ichigo in most battles is Kisuke's and Shinji's obligation and with them by his side, Ichigo is unlikely to fail.

We all have been itching to know how strong Urahara is. How strong is Urahara anyway?

Kisuke's Powers and Abilities

Like Aizen and Gin, Kisuke's powers and abilities are yet to be revealed. No one really knows how strong Urahara is, as he rarely engages himself with others. However, it can be assumed that Urahara's abilities place him in the same league as Shunsui Kyoraku, who is perhaps the strongest combatant in the Soul Society. We literally have no proof of it, but there have been numerous evidences that give hint to his actual power. For example, during his first time as a captain, he visited the Maggot's Nest with Hiyori and they began fighting the hostile prisoners. Urahara demonstrated his skill in hand-to-hand combat by knocking the prisoners out at once without even trying. When Ulquiorra and Yammy first appeared in Karakura Town, Kisuke eventually appears to save Ichigo, who was taking a beating from Yammy. Yammy fired a powerful cero at close range and Kisuke countered it with his crimson-colored blast, which was so powerful it splat the earth in two. While Renji was training Yasutora Sado using his own bankai, Renji asked Urahara to take his place in training Chad. Kisuke declined and stated that his bankai is not for training people, maybe it was because Chad wouldn't survive the power of his bankai. It is believed by fans that if Aizen was to fight Urahara during the night of the Vizards' mutation, Urahara would have destroyed him. This is not impossible since Urahara became a captain first before Aizen did, which suggests Urahara's powers could be superior to Aizen's.

Kisuke just might be the one to fight Aizen in the end.

      LMAO Hollow Ichigo version 2 would fail at the hands of Urahara this is a guy who "faithfully" does not use bankai and has never attempted to

      Oh snap...the amazing power behind the second most powerful soul society has come to my attention that ichigo vasto lorde supasses the abilities of a captain so the final getsuga tenshou is an even more intense power therefore resulting in ichigo being close to being more powerful in strength,speed and fire power then urahara

      I have some ideas for Urahara's bankai.

      Imagine a Bankai with an deadly mist with a hint of blood that makes the rivals skin oversensitive to the extent that moving too swiftly can get you a slash wound, and a special move like that makes the zanpakuto start draining blood out of the enemy's wounds and using it to create a barrier around Urahara, and perhaps a blood-forged zanpakuto. When the zanpakuto penetrates the skin, the wound cannot be healed. The longer the fight drags (which Urahara does since he likes to play around, as shown with Yammy, and as noted by the extensive trash talking), the weaker the enemy gets due to bloodloss, and the more blood that spills the stronger Urahara's shield/blood-forged zanpakuto/and spiritual pressure grow, to the point where no matter how strong the enemy is, he can't slash through Urahara's defenses, he can't outrun him, is being drained of spiritual pressure and becomes extremely vulnerable.

      Another ability could rely on the fact that Uraharas blood flows through the zanpakuto. And when the zanpakuto cuts the opponents skin, blood from Urahara can flow through the zanpakuto and mix into the enemies blood stream. This will permanently poison the enemy and can also allow Urahara to completely control the victim both mentally and physically (only those with spiritual pressure lower than his own.) This will also cause Urahara's awareness to enhance and will allow him to know where his opponent is at all times. He could also use it the other way around, he can absorb some of the opponents blood and with this power, he could absorb the essence of the opponent. It could be anything related to the creature, such as enhanced physical attributes (sight, speed, etc. ), skills, and even superpowers. But the abilities will only be up to 50% as strong as the original. Furthermore, if his opponent can somehow escape, the remains of Urahara's blood in his bloodstream will cause a plague among him and his comrades.

      A third effect his bankai will have is that when Uraharas blood mixes into the opponents bloodstream (previously explained above) each time Urahara gets hit, the opponent will take damage equal to the damage Urahara took from the attack.

      The ability to turn Urahara's blood into acid. When activated, This turns his blood into acid and causes it to burn through his veins. Then he can throw it in someones face, burn through restraints, stuff like that. This power is mainly for when he is attacked, if Urahara's blood gets on the enemy when he attacks the blood will start to burn a hole through the stained area. And if Urahara is poisoned etc., the boiling of his blood will cause the harmful particles to die out. Of course this power is crazy painful. If I didn't couple it with some form of regeneration, no one would want it, so I did just that. When deactivated, the lost blood turns into a vapor and returns to your veins, which heal some of the internal injuries very quickly, but some injuries will still remain. And, if it remains activated for to long, he might melt down completely.

      The bankai will also also him to turn his blood on the surface of his skin into solid crystals which can be used as an armor, for defense alongside his blood mist shield. He can also use this crystallization into offense by creating sharp blades on his fists.

      His bankai will make his zanpakuto extremly strong. The blade of the sword unfolds from the top of the shaft, goes behind his head and hits his shoulder. The sword then absorbs enough blood to function. In the 1st form, the blood is concentrated on the blade, making it bigger, thicker, and adding spikes to it. It can be used to defend or attack. The blood from the blade can also flows to the end of the handle, and transforms into a blade the same shape and size as the main blade of the scythe, except it is facing a different way. Now, the scythe can be thrown at opponents, and it will spin as it flies, its flight and intensity can be controlled at Urahara's will. If the opponent manages to destroy the zanpakuto, he can manipulate blood (of his enemy or his own) to revive it.

      You can create any number of creatures out of your blood. They are a hive mind with you at the center, so you can communicate with them in a cell-phone like way, but with better reception, and move their muscles as your own. They have no minds of their own, so they cannot disobey you, doesn't need food, and are immune to pain. Also, you can mutate the blood even OUTSIDE of your body. The weakness to this is that, Urahara's powers and spiritual energy will be divided among these creatures.

      Along with these he will have a splicing ability. The Splicer ability allows him to splice any thing living or non-living together by allowing his blood flow into the object. (Like he can splice himself with a rock to turn his hand into a rock causing powerful punches.)

      Also Since Urahara's bankai drains blood, when he cuts his opponents it absorbs the blood and as time passes it will have drained enough blood to immobilize the effected body part. Even though blood is pumped from the heart and the deprived body part will be filled with blood again, the blood will have no effect and wont fix the immobilization of the body part and will continue spilling out of the incurable wound.

      An additional ability can be to self destruct (causing pain to yourself, but creating a massive and strong explosion) and then gathering your blood to reform.

      Lastly, when enough blood is drained from the enemy he will be granted two major abilities.

      He can make the blood form into a "Dragon Crimson Princess" (because his zanpakutos name is "Crimson Princess") to make the final super high powered blow which will instantly kill anyone it touches by causing them to explode.

      The other ability will enable him to create a burning crimson rainstorm which will rapidly burn and disolve everything it touches, that affects all things everywhere and can hit several times before disappearing. But if it gets out of hand it can kill everyone including himself, (probably will be his hardest power to control).

      Bankai's Weakness:

      Since Urahara's bankai is so extremely deadly, there is going to be a short limit to how long he can use it.

      Since his Urahara's zanpakuto is running due to his blood, using it for too long can kill Urahara himself, so he needs to keep track of how long he is using it.

      Also for the power to turn his blood into acid, it is extremely painful and difficult to control and can completely burn Urahara alive, if used to long. After he stops using his bankai, his speed, stamina, and strength will suffer for a prolonged period of time. These powers will also increase villainous behaviors and wantings.

      Not too sure if Urahara is more powerful than Aizen. WEll, Aizen had most of the captains in soul society under his shikai and let us not forget he countered tessai's level 88 hado. Aizen's probably could have been very powerful even before he became vice captain. He merely underplayed his powers to fit in well and construct an elaborate plan. I'm still creeped out over the comment by Aizen to Urahara "you're the man i expected you to be".

      Pretty interesting how you portrayed and approached the subject. I wouldn't be able to be objective if i had to talk about Urahara. Probably my first sentence would be "HEEEEEEEEEE ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCKSSSS!!!!!!!"

      I seriously love your Bleach hubs and i hope you enjoyed the byakuya/zaraki VS yammy fight because it was really hilarious because you never see Byakuya losing his cool only when it comes to his pride :D.

      You got great stuff here :D
