** All shinigami imprint their soul onto an asauchi to produce a [[EmpathicWeapon zanpakutou]]. Most shinigami can never move beyond this stage, but some talented shinigami develop enough of a bond with their weapon to [[TalkingWeapon learn its name]] which is the key to unlocking their power in the form of shikai. A small proportion of shikai users are so talented that they can unlock a SuperMode called bankai. This entails forming a very strong bond with their zanpakutou which in essence means coming to terms with the truth about themselves, warts and all. A zanpakutou in bankai form has its own name, which in most cases is the basic name with a prefix and/or suffix added, but sometimes it's entirely different. Normally it takes a minimum of decades after having achieved shikai to unlock bankai, and over a century to master its use, but [[GuileHero Urahara]] invented a way to "cheat" and unlock bankai in just three days...[[DangerousForbiddenTechnique or die in the process]]. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that on rare occasions it's possible for a shinigami to achieve an incomplete bankai, which has a different name than the true bankai. Likewise, it's possible for a shinigami to only partially release a shikai by calling it by the wrong name, in order to hide its true nature.]]

**Oddly enough, it was actually the British who started the tradition of naming American tanks after American commanders, since the British actually used the names as official designations, as opposed to just being nicknames. (So what the Americans designated the Medium Tank, M4, the British designated the Sherman I).
