** Yoruichi is a black cat that talks in an extremely masculine way. When finally consents to show his true form to Ichigo, he transforms... into a woman. Lampshaded in-universe, Yoruichi actually gets a huge kick out of setting up people to think she's male before revealing the truth.
** When Aizen is revealed to be alive to his loyal lieutenant and the audience at the same time, an overwhelmed Hinamori hugs him and bursts into tears. Aizen gently apologies for having caused her so much pain and thnaks her for being such a reliable lieutenant... before ending his speech with the word "goodbye" and the sight of him stabbing her through the chest... revealing him to be the BigBad.
** Ichigo thrashes Byakuya, finally winning Rukia's freedom and leaving both himself and Byakuya exhausted and badly injured. When Aizen captures Rukia and the call to all the captains goes out, Ichigo, Renji and Komamura are defeated and Aizen orders Gin to stab Rukia. Gin does so... but the person he stabs is Byakuya, who - despite his injuries and exhaustion - was still fast enough to intervene in an act that is the complete opposite of his previous support for Rukia's execution.

BigBad.



** Flashbacks reveal that, 20 years before the start of the story, Aizen was experimenting on a very special hollowfication that was using a Shinigami's soul as a base. The hollow is revealed when it ambushes Isshin... and looks identical to the strange hollow form Ichigo took when fighting Ulquiorra.
