One of the most beloved female characters in Bleach. Yoruichi is the dark-skinned Soul Reaper who acts as a mentor/guide or sorts for Ichigo and friends in Soul Society and later revealed as one of the more powerful Soul Reapers. She was once a member of the Shihouin noble family, and mentored both Byakuya and Sui-Fon. She has the ability to turn herself into a black cat, complete with masculine voice. Also, later chapters reveal her to be the former Captain of the 2nd squad of Gotei 13, preceding Sui-Feng. Her ultimate form is '''''[[OverlyLongName Shunkō: Raiju Senkei: Shunryū Kokubyō Senkei]]''''', which turns her into a human-cat-thunder goddess hybrid, granting her tremendous speed and strength at the (temporary) cost of her human intelligence and forcing her to behave like a cat.

* BarefistedMonk: Yoruichi's zanpakuto is only shown in a flashback. She always fights without weapons and only ever uses armour once, when protecting her arms and legs to fight a supernaturally empowered Aizen. Although Soi Fon has basically the same fighting style as Yoruichi, she relies more on her zanpakuto than Yoruichi does. Yoruichi can empower her unarmed combat style with a unique KiAttack called Shunkou to strengthen her physical attacks beyond the physical limit, a technique that Soi Fon can also use.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: When Ichigo approaches the Visoreds to learn how to control his inner Hollow, she repeatedly goads him into tapping into its powers, which he refuses to do out of fear that he'll lose control. After she beats him around enough, his Hollow side involuntarily takes over and immediately starts strangling her, forcing the other Visoreds to step in to save her. Afterwards, Shinji sarcastically asks if she's satisfied while she sheds TearsOfFear.

* CeilingCling: Or more like ''Air'' Cling. Shinji pulls one on Ichigo At the beginning of the Arrancar Arc, Ichigo, Sado and his gang right before his introduction. His preference for Orihime escape from school to kill a Hollow. While they're discussing why Uryuu didn't join them, they fail to realise they're being watched by a man standing upside down in the air above them. Shinji, however, is inverted compared to the kids on the ground: he is standing upside-down, casually drinking a bottle of water. It's an early hint toward of his powers.Zanpakutou power: the ability to confuse an opponent by inverting the senses and destroying the ability to tell what's up, down, right, left, etc.

* IronicName: "Kensei", meaning swords' saint, is an honorary title given to a warrior of legendary skill in swordsmanship. A bit ironic for a man whose preferred weapon of choice is either a combat knife or his fists instead of a sword.

* TinyTyrannicalGirl: She's the youngest of the Visoreds, yet incredibly bossy and ill-tempered toward almost everyone, including the Visored leader Shinji and her former captain Urahara.

* DrillSergeantNasty: Uruhara's method of reactivating Ichigo's Soul Reaper powers involved removing his soul from his body, severing his Chain of Fate, having Ururu attack him with her SuperStrength in order to build up his spiritual power, and then drop him in a pit to Hollowfy -- an agonizing process that left Ichigo enraged when he survived.

* MyGreatestFailure: Isshin first reveals he's a Soul Reaper when saving Kon's life from Grand Fisher, the Hollow that killed Ichigo's mother six years before the story begins. Kon learns that Isshin voluntarily sacrificed his powers twenty years before this moment, has only just regained his powers, and that's why he couldn't save Masaki six years ago. When Urahara asks Isshin if he has any regrets, Isshin says his only regret is that he couldn't save Masaki "that night". Masaki died during a mid-afternoon downpour. It's eventually revealed that Masaki and Isshin first met twenty years ago at night, during a battle in Karakura Town against one of Aizen's Hollowfication experiments. Masaki saves Isshin's life, but is fatally infected by the Hollow in the process. When Urahara binds Isshin's power to Masaki's soul, it stabilises her soul, but leaves her Quincy nature permanently corrupted. The corruption is what gets her selected by the Quincy King's purge six years before the story begins, and is what causes Masaki to die at the hands of the Arrancar that later tries to kill Kon. The implication is that Isshin's regret is regarding the events of the night they first met, rather than the day she actually died.

%% * TheChessmaster: One of Urahara's defining traits is his tactical and strategic genius; coming up with long, circuitous plans that he can revise on the fly and are matched only by Aizen's own. Aizen perceives himself as Urahara's archrival, but the feeling is onesided. The Vandenreich even considers him one of the '5 war potentials' of Soul Society due to just how adaptable and effective his planning tends to be.
