* ArcFatigue: One of the most painful flaws of the manga (and by extension the anime). Happened first in the Soul Society arc. Then in the Hueco Mundo arc. Then in the Battle of Karakura arc. Then ''again'' in the final fight against Aizen. And that if you don't count the arcs from Hueco Mundo to Aizen as [[UpToEleven a single arc]] (The anime named it "The Arrancar Saga"). To be fair on Kubo, it was mostly due to ExecutiveMeddling.
** "The Thousand Year Blood War Arc" unfortunately fell into this as well despite starting off strong and getting right into the heart of the action, with some very meaty exposition of the series MythArc later on. But once the second invasion begins, it resumed it's habits of focusing on the fights then progressing the plot which, ultimately, backfired on it when the manga was cancelled and Kubo was given very little time to do a proper climax and ending.

One of the most painful flaws of the manga (and by extension the anime).anime). The series is littered with tons of fights that, while interesting and offering ''some'' character development, halts and pads the story tremendously. Happened first in the Soul Society arc.

** Uryu Ishida unfortunately fell into this camp during the Thousand Year Blood War arc. Considering the fact that the arc was focused on the Quincies, and he was the only truly established Quincy before it began, it would make a lot of sense for Uryu's character to be heavily spotlighted and his backstory examined, especially [[spoiler:when it's revealed that he has joined the Vandenreich]]. Instead Uryu appeared very sporadically throughout the arc with only a little focus on his character when necessary. Worse [[spoiler:TheReveal that he was TheMole within the Vandenreich (already in itself a CaptainObviousReveal) comes off as poorly thought-out on his part, since he doesn't really accomplish anything in this role and mostly just served as a ConflictBall]]. Uryu doesn't even have a proper fight during the arc [[spoiler:getting mostly [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomped]] off-screen by Jugram before the latter gets absorbed by Yhwach and then only getting to fire a single arrow at said villain to end the final fight.

** [[spoiler: The first Kenpachi, the original Yachiru and the worst criminal of the Soul Society, is perfectly willing to die so she could power up Zaraki]]. Additionally, her backstory remains undeveloped. [[spoiler: We're not told how she got from being the worst criminal in Soul Society to the motherly healer seen throughout the series and it's not explored which, if either, should be considered the "real" personality.]] Further, many fans feel that Zaraki's improved abilities are more of a PowerUpLetdown, since he's supposed to be so strong that nothing can stop him, and yet he keeps being taken out either by enemies even [[spoiler:his zanpakutou spirit says he should be capable of beating alone]] or by his own powers backfiring.

** Toshiro, due to becoming a [[SpotlightStealingSquad Spotlight Stealing Character]], is at times compared to [[TheHero Ichigo]], and is viewed as having ability of {{Ass Pull}}s. Having his own movie, which cashes in on his Japanese popularity, made him even more disliked in America. European attitudes tend to be more ambivalent than either the Japanese or American attitudes.

** [[spoiler:Yhwach's defeat]] involved two. One was the Still Silver arrow that Uryu uses to [[spoiler:temporarily seal his powers]]. The only bit of foreshadowing concerning the flashback of [[spoiler:his dead mother's dissection]] is inconsistent with [[spoiler:the past victims of Auswählen who have either survived with their powers stripped or were StrippedToTheBone]]. The second is Ichigo's Bankai. [[spoiler:After being shattered ''again'', it inexplicably reverts to his original Shikai, allowing him to continue swinging the blade to bifurcate Yhwach.]]

** [[Characters/BleachYhwach Yhwach]], pronounced Yoo-Ha-Vahk, is TheEmperor of the [[Characters/BleachVandenreich Vandenreich]], the King of all Quincies, and the final BigBad. Yhwach attacks the Soul Society, killing numerous Soul Reapers, while personally slaying the Gotei 13's commander Yamamoto Genryusai. It is then revealed Yhwach was responsible for the ''Auswahlen'', or "Holy Selection", nine years prior: stealing the power from Quincies he deemed "impure"—for all intents and purposes killing them--to restore his own power, which led to the deaths of Ichigo and Uryu Ishida's mothers. Furthermore, Yhwach maintains his power and life by [[YourSoulIsMine harvesting the souls of those slain in the war]], on both sides. On his second invasion, Yhwach callously uses the ''Auswahlen'' on [[BadBoss his elite Stern Ritter forces]], save his own personal guard, when he deems them useless to the coming battle. Finding the Soul King, Yhwach destroys him, nearly sundering the separate worlds, while not caring about the innocents or even his own soldiers caught up in the destruction. Said soldiers offer their aid to the Shinigami once they understand the extent of Yhwach's threat to existence; this EnemyMine also includes various other factions, demonstrating how dangerous Yhwach is. Absorbing the Soul King's power, Yhwach later uses ''Auswahlen'' a third time on his Royal Guard, including his trusted second-in-command Haschwalth, before defeating Ichigo himself, stealing his powers and declaring his intent to bring ruin to Soul Society and the human world, while threatening to kill Ichigo's friends in their happiest moments should they interfere, all to create a world where [[ImmortalityImmorality he won't have to die]]. Brutal, callous and unrelenting in his selfish belief that [[ItsAllAboutMe everything exists to benefit and empower him]], [[AGodAmI Yhwach]] stands as ''Bleach'''s cruelest and most dangerous villain.
