* {{Expy}}: Based of Gamma Akutabi from Creator/TiteKubo's earlier work, ''Manga/ZombiePowder'', right down to the hair and appearance.

* NoNonsenseNemesis: Barragan prefers to age or rot his opponent's flesh and kill them as soon as possible, rather than blast them with Cero or have needlessly long weapon clashes.

* NoNonenseNemesis: Ulquiorra is not the type of person who goes into hammy speeches or sadism. He carries out his plans as efficiently as possible. Wheneven he fights against Ichigo, he does not laugh maniacally or smile. He simply does his best to eliminate him or kill him.

* WaveMotionGun: His Gran Rey Cero, noted by Harribel's fraccions to be forbidden under Las Noches. Due to its blast radius, it's easy to see why. It is also called a particularly powerful Cero, by Grimmjow himself.

* EvilCounterpart: Similar in some ways to Kenpachi as a bloodthirsty, fight-loving psycho with the desire to fight strong enemies, but Nnoitra is strongly distinguished by character traits such as lechery, misogyny, pettiness, arrogance, and an inferiority complex. The core of their insanity is also different: Kenpachi fights for fun, Nnoitra is a DeathSeeker; Nnoitra is obsessed with proving he is the strongest, Kenpachi ''loves'' finding out the opponent might be stronger than him. However, when a fight drags on too long, Nnoitra gets frustrated. Zaraki, on the other hand, loves a long hard battle. A visual parallel is also drawn with Nnoitra's eyepatch, which is later replaced with a scar identical to Kenpachi's after taking a strong slash to the face and chest.

* SuperToughness: Even by the standards of the Arrancar, Nnoitra's hierro was considered exceptional. He possessed the strongest hierro of all the Espada.

* AnAxeToGrind: In both non released and released forms he wields giant axes.

* BadassGrandpa: He's old, and even his powers revolve around Old Age, but he's still the single most badass member of Aizen's BadassArmy. Not to mention he's just as muscular as Captain Yamamoto.

* CoolCrown: He has a large, impressive spiked crown in release. When in his unreleased state the remains of his hollow mask merely look like a crown.

* TheFatalist: As the Espada of Age, also directly connected to his BattleAura, Baraggan brags that death by aging is something that the mind can't fathom, except that it's inevitable even for Soul Reapers, lecturing that nothing can exist forever; even the word "forever" is meaningless, since it was born from the fear of death.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: After all the trouble Sui-Feng and Hachi went through, after [[spoiler:surviving two bankai nukes and proving immune to kido, after taking arms off of both his opponents]], he is finally taken down when Hachi [[spoiler:teleports his own decaying arm into Baraggan's stomach]], disintegrating Baraggan into nothing.

* LogicalWeakness: Barragan was able to rule Hueco Mundo for an untold length of time due to his [[MakeThemRot aging power]] being absolute. Unlike other powers, ''everyone'' is affected by his power, because nothing lasts forever. Hachigen defeats Barragan by concluding that if this is true, Barragan himself is no exception and must have some sort of trick that protects him. He was right.
* OhCrap: When Sui-Feng shoots him directly in the face with her bankai, he's horrified to discover he can't block or avoid it. Later, Hacchi evokes another such expression from him when he figures out Barragan's secret. [[spoiler:Barragan is vulnerable to his own power and Hacchi figures out how to turn it against him.]]

* RedHerring: The way he takes charge, and the fact that he's the oldest looking Espada led some people to believe he was Espada # 1. Even Kyoraku had the same thoughts.
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: [[spoiler:Hacchi realises that if Barragan is telling the truth about his power being absolute then Barragan himself is vulnerable to his own power and therefore needs a second power to protect himself from his primary ability.]]

* SuperpowerLottery: His basic power is unstoppable, unblockable, works as both offense and defense and unless treated with some drastic measures is a surefire one hit kill. Used right, it could possibly be more broken than Kyoka Suigetsu.

* WillfullyWeak: Refusing to eat other Hollows means that she didn't continue to gain power the way less moral Hollows like Baraggan did. This combined with her steadfast refusal to kill and her belief in fighting as a group explains quite well why she didn't seem as powerful as the other Vasto Lorde Arrancar. Of course, when she actually puts some effort into fighting, she's a total badass.

* DespairEventHorizon: He was born into a group of jet black Vasto Lordes, pure white and with only one sense (sight). He then wandered the desert for an unspecified period of time until, in a moment of pure despair he encounters a strange phenomenon that rips off most of his mask. His obsession with trusting only what he can see and his inability to understand anything that doesn't register with his sense of sight stems from this.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: The defining theme of his CharacterDevelopment is his lack of ability to understand why ANY of the heroes continue fighting for Orihime when they shouldn't be able to win, and their allies keep falling. He also fails to grasp friendship, love and almost all other emotions as well. When she explains that this is due to the connections their hearts share he is even more confused. It's a point which he questions over and over again, to Orihime and at one instance, even Ichigo.

* FourIsDeath: He has a ghost-like appearance, a nihilistic philosophy and "fallen angel" transformations designed to evoke death by despair. He's the fourth Espada, has had four hollow transformations (hollow, arrancar, resurrecion, segunda), his helmet transforms from four ridges to four horns, and a lot of his fights invoke the number four via chapter numbers and the number of chapters or volumes his battles span. During said fights, he manages to practically kill Ichigo ''twice''.

* HealingFactor: He's the only Espada who didn't sacrifice high-speed regeneration for increased attack strength when he became an Arrancar. He has the ability to nigh-instantly regenerate everything but major organs. Theoretically, you could break this guy's neck and he'd get up in a few minutes.
