* Toshiro's jokes about [[SelfDepreciation his size]] wasn't just a gag. It was a comically reference to his mastery of his Bankai and[[spoiler:[[OlderAlterEgo growing older as a result]].]]

** Furthermore, Kenpachi has no sense of direction and can't sense reiatsu. He relies completely on Yachiru to tell him where to go to find strong opponents. Well OF COURSE he does; she's his zanpakutou, and thus like all zanpakutou, she's a TricksterMentor. Kenpachi loves to feel like he's relying on his own strength in a fight, so the only way to get him to cooperate with her was by being his SensorCharacter. This is also why she thanks Ichigo for giving Kenpachi a good fight; his stubborn ass is still holding back to keep from killing strong opponents, so she leads him to progressively stronger and stronger people to break his own mental limits.

* The reveal from 668 that [[spoiler: Yachiru is actually Kenpachi's sword spirit Nozarashi has been foreshadowed since we'd first met Knepachi. During his flashback of meeting Yachiru, he asks who she is, and she basically points to his sword. She's also the only individual who's not affected by his spiritual pressure either. Coyote Starrk himself was foreshadowing as well. Both characters were afraid of being alone so they'd either shackled their true power with limiters, and thus both had their zanpakuto's materialize in the real world and could interact with their environments.]]

***I think his surprise is more due to the fact that everyone's naked in a hot bath all of a sudden.

* About the Narm-King Zommari Rureaux. His powers, on a second thought, are extremely dangerous [[spoiler: If you don't know about that kido-barrier spell anyway]], as he has to look at your head to defeat you, so, why he's just the Septima Espada, Reishi levels besides? Because he's too [[TooDumbToLive dumb and careless with his powers]], making him a lesser threath than other high-level Espada.

** By extension, this extends to all of the older Sternritter, and their actions and behaviour. Unlike the younger Sternritter, they all know the fate that befalls those whom Yhwach deems "unnecessary", and so act accordingly in order to try to earn Yhwach's favour. BG9's fear of execution, Mask De Masculine's drive to defeat as many Captain-class Shinigami as possible, As Nodt's fear of Yhwach, and Pepe's intent to wipe out his fellow Sternritter to get credit for defeating Yhwach all to himself all reflected this knowledge and fear of Yhwach's true nature that the younger Sternritter had no knowledge of. It could even explain why Driscoll was [[TooDumbToLive dumb enough]] to try to take out Yamamoto on his own: he must have perceived Yamamoto to be the ultimate prize to earn Yhwach's favour.

* [[spoiler: The new BigBad, Tsukishima, is [[MagnificentBastard genius]], [[GoodScarsEvilScars scarred]], {{pretty boy}} who can cut anything with a katana made from a bookmark and, as of Chapter 456, has effectively [[SpotlightStealingSquad hijacked]] [[TheProtagonist Ichigo's]] life story.

* Aizen having a kido that speeds up one's perception of time doesn't seem quite so contrived (as the one thing that could drive off Yhwach) when you consider how useful such a thing would be in prison.

** Ichigo can sense spirit energy and identify people with those sensory powers.
** Common sense. Ichigo knew he went to the Royal Realm with Byakuya and Renji and that he was in the pool to heal his wounds. Since he'd already seen Byakuya and Renji were in the pool, the was only one person the floating backside could belong to.

* A similarly interesting moment comes when Tousen is taken by surprise [[spoiler:and stabbed in the head by Hisagi]]. Hisagi and Komamura had set out to open Tousen's eyes, and it just so happens that Tousen [[spoiler:using his Resurrecion]] enables him to see. Tousen, the first person to accept Komamura despite his appearance, denounces him as ugly, and relying on his sight instead of the other senses that helped him become a HandicappedBadass, doesn't notice [[spoiler:Hisagi leaping onto his head]], and Hisagi comments that he should have been able to avoid it if he were blind. In a tragically ironic sense, Komamura and Hisagi succeeded in opening Tousen's eyes, but in so doing, revealed how far he had fallen, and [[spoiler:only managed to kill him]] -- @/{{Rampulus}}.

* ''Bleach'' contains a lot of parallels and references to Japanese UsefulNotes/Buddhism:
** The Hogyoku, like the Shikon Jewel from ''Manga/InuYasha'', is derived from the Chintamani Stone, a wish-granting jewel.
