[[caption-width:350:Human Ririn]]

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ririn_Mod_Soul_493.jpg
[[caption-width:150:Mod Soul Lirin]]

A modified soul created by Urahara along with Kurodo and Noba. She is the de facto leader of the three. She and her "siblings" initially appeared giving Ichigo's team a surprisingly brutal TrainingFromHell, but quickly became good friends (especially with Ichigo) with them and were instrumental in the war against the Bount. Her stuffed animal form is a hooded chicken, and she has illusion powers.
----
Tropes associated with Lirin:
%% * AnnoyingLaugh
* BrattyHalfPint: Mainly during the TrainingFromHell, but she still has elements of this later.

%% * DeadpanSnarker
%% DynamicEntry: Is fond of doing this to Kon.
%% * MasterOfIllusion
%% * PrecociousCrush: On Ichigo.

[[caption-width:150:Mod Soul Kurodo]]

Another modified soul created by Urahara. He can copy the appearances and abilities of others, and his stuffed animal self is a bizarre looking bunny. He is close friends with Orihime.
----
Tropes associated with Kurodo:
%% * ButtMonkey
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's usually the most klutzy and dizty of the Mod Souls, but he's shown that he can hold his own in a fight.
%% * DopplegangerSpin
%% * MulticoloredHair
* NiceHat: A very stylish tophat.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Kurodo or Claude? Kurodo is the official translation, but the characters used in writing his name aren't usually read that way. Some fansubs even rendered it ''Cloud''.
%% * TrainingFromHell

!!'''Noba'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Noba_human_5760.jpg
[[caption-width:290:Human Noba]]

----
Tropes associated with Noba:
%% * BarrierWarrior
%% * {{Bishonen}}
%% * CoolMask
%% CovertPervert: Briefly in the Zanpaktou filler arc
* HatesBeingTouched: He's embarrassed when women touch him. He doesn't mind sitting on Chad's shoulder, yet he hides his face when Rukia or Rangiku touch him and he changes into his plushie form when he has to touch Rangiku's arm to combine his powers with hers.
%% * MrFanservice
%% * {{Ninja}}
%% * RealityWarper
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Nova or Noba?
* TheStoic [[TheQuietOne Quiet One]]: Only ever speaks a word or short sentence at a time. Says less than even Chad, if that's even possible. When Kurodo asks Orihime what she thinks they talk about, the scene cuts to them failing to start a conversation entirely.
%% * TrainingFromHell
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Bount]]
The Bount are a group of humans that gain immortality by feasting on human souls. They have weapons known as "dolls", a similar equivalent to Zanpakuto.

!!'''Jin Kariya'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jin_Kariya.jpg

The leader of the Bounts, and BigBad of the Bount arc. While at first it seems like his goal is to create a portal to Hueco Mundo and join Aizen, his real objective is to create a portal to Soul Society in order to take revenge for the mass slaughter of Bounts centuries ago. His Doll is Messer.
-----
Tropes associated with Jin:
%% * AffablyEvil
%% * ArcVillain: Of the Bount Arc, naturally.
%% * BadassLongcoat

* TheCoatsAreOff: During his final battle with Ichigo, though mainly because Ichigo's attacks shredded it.
%% * DeathSeeker

* FillerVillain: Along with the rest of the Bounts.
%% * FingerPokeOfDoom
%% * GoodScarsEvilScars
* InterimVillain: FillerVillain or no, the anime actually tied him into the Arrancar storyline by having him return as a vision to Ichigo, indirectly assisting in getting Ichigo himself to defeat his Inner Hollow.
* KilledMidSentence: "Kurosaki, I... *poof*"
* ManipulativeBastard: If you're not a Bount, you're either an enemy or just a pawn to him. And even the other Bounts, whom he ''does'' display some signs of genuinely caring for, tend to get sacrificed with alarming regularity.
* MeaningfulName: His Doll's, Messer means "knife", and is probably one of the few Doll names which makes a little sense.
* OmnicidalManiac: His ultimate goal is to destroy the Soul Reapers, the human souls, and even himself.
* PetTheDog: Despite his cruelty, he genuinely cares for his fellow Bounts, as evidenced by his mourning over a Bounts' grave.

* ShockAndAwe: Messer's true form utilizes lightning.
%% SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: One way to look at his goals.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: He got turned into a Bount by accident, was forced to flee the Soul Society and lived his life on the run watching his fellow Bounts get hunted down and killed by both Soul Reapers and hollows.

* LaserBlade: Messer's true form.

* SympatheticPOV: You have to feel sorry for him when you learn about his past.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Aside from Yoshino Soma, let's say it's pretty obvious that he's this to the Bounts. He's the only one who is portrayed sympathetically and isn't a JerkAss.
%% * TheVamp: Dalk.
%% * WorthyOpponent: To Hitsugaya.


!!'''Yoshino Soma'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Yoshino_Soma.jpg

%% * AloofAlly
%% * DeathActivatedSuperpower: How the above is achieved.

%% * GoOutWithASmile
* OneWingedAngel: Has the ability to fuse with Goethe. Doesn't change the fact that she gets the shit beaten out of her by Jin.

!!'''Mabashi'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mabashi.jpg

One of the Bounts. Like Yoshino, he initially hated how Bount society has changed under Jin's rule. However, after getting a taste of the power Jin offers, he quickly changes his mind. His Doll is Ritz.
-----

* AxCrazy: After being forced to consume souls.

%% * PeekABangs
* PeoplePuppets: His Doll's ability.

%% * WhipItGood

!!'''Sawatari'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sawatari.jpg

The oldest of the Bounts, at least judging by his appearance. It's implied by Mabashi that he looks so old due to having consumed too many living souls. His Doll is Baura.

----
Tropes associated with Sawatari:

%% * AffablyEvil
* BadassGrandpa: Subverted. The man himself is nothing remarkable. It's his Doll that makes him so dangerous.
* ElderlyImmortal: By virtue of being a Bount, he's prety much immortal, but somehow looks much older than the others.
%% * EvilOldFolks
* NightmareFace: Busts out a pretty impressive one during his first fight.

%% * FourEyesZeroSoul
%% * HoistByHisOwnPetard
%% * LivingShadow: Gesell
%% * NonActionGuy

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Seriously, he even attacked a (fake) Ulquiorra!!!
* BadBoss: He doesn't give a shit about his subordinates.

%% * YouGottaHaveBlueHair

-----
%% * TheBrute
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: His Resurrecion gives him six tentacle-like appendages.
* NonIndicativeName: Jabalì supposedly means "boar". He's anything but boar-like.
* SphereOfDestruction: He can turn himself in one while transformed, but it's not that impressive.

::'''Maki Ichinose'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Maki_Ichinose.jpg

A traitor Soul Reaper that serves as Jin's bodyguard. He was orginally part of Squad 11, under the captain before Kenpachi. When Kenpachi killed the old captain and took up the mantle, Ichinose was unable to accept him as a replacement for his (much) nobler captain, and left Soul Society in despair. Soon afterwards, he is saved from a Hollow by Jin, who offers him employment. Feeling he had regained a purpose, he joined Jin and quickly became his most fanatical servant. His Zanpakuto is Nijigasumi.
----
Tropes associated with Ichinose:

* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:He easily defeates Utagawa when he tries to turn on Jin.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Seeing his Captain killed and replaced by Kenpachi brought him to the edge.

* TheGunslinger: Her WeaponOfChoice is a kido gun
* GlassCannon: [[spoiler: Extremely skilled kido user. Her extreme age seriously limits her stamina in fights.]]
* HiddenWeapons: Her hairpin conceals a small knife. [[spoiler: Which she can use to [[PowerNullifier seal up the Bounts's abilities]].]]
%% * HotScientist
* OlderThanHeLooks: She looks MUCH younger than she truly is, but has to rest up more than the average Soul Reaper to keep her looks ''and'' her health. [[spoiler: In fact, during the final fight Ran uses up all of her powers and almost kicks it.]].
%% * {{Meganekko}}
%% * WomanInBlack

!!'''Shusuke Amagai'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shusuke_Amagai_9384.jpg

The new captain of Squad 3 in the New Captain arc, who hopes to increase cooperation between the squads and reduce reliance on the captains and lieutenants. His Zanpakuto is Raika.
----

Tropes associated with Amagai:

* ArcVillain: He's the BigBad of the eponymous "New Captain Amagai Shusuke" arc.
* AffablyEvil: He sincerely cared about his friends and squad mates, and valued Ichigo as a friend and ally. Unfortunately, he was willing to throw it away in the name of vengeance, and he died regretting it.
* AntagonistAbilities: His bakkoto is a PowerNullifier allows him to seal zanpakutou abilities (but not completely seal Hollowified zanpakutou abilities).
* AntiVillain: His primary aim is revenge, but he's sincerely interested in improving cooperation and team-work within and between squads, qualities which [[CrapsackWorld in all honesty were frankly shit before he came around]].
* BackToBackBadasses: With Ichigo in the second version of the Season 8 opening. [[spoiler:While he and Ichigo work together for some time, he later turns out to be Ichigo's final enemy in the arc]].
* {{BFS}}[=/=]{{BFG}}: His Bankai is part giant hook-sword and part [[PlayingWithFire flame cannon]].
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Even alcohol-flavored pickles can get him drunk.
* DidntSeeThatComing: [[spoiler: Amagai's Bakkoto brings with it a GameBreaker ability to [[PowerNullifier seal ALL Soul Reaper abilities]]. Unfortunately for him, Ichigo's Hollow corruption gives him just enough power to defeat Amagai on skill.]]
* DragonInChief: [[spoiler: He certainly orchestrated much of the events that kept the Soul Society pre-occupied, and he's far more competant as a fighter, but he was officially working as TheMole for Kumoi, simultaneously protecting Kumoi from investigations by the Soul Reapers. Ultimately, as he planned from the start, [[DragonAscendant Amagai killed Kumoi, took upgrades for his Bakkoto and confronted Yamamoto personally]].]]
* DrunkenMaster: He once pulls a BigDamnHeroes to save his squad. And then he collapses, still drunk off his ass.
* FlamingSword: Raiga is a hooksword that is capable of manipulating flames. His bankai takes that to a BFS with an afterburner for a hilt.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Amagai started out in one of the more unassuming positions in soul society, being a plainclothesman tasked with surveying rebel forces. The very nature of his position would make any sort of merit or positive reputation difficult to build up. Nevertheless, he learns Bankai, impresses superiors, their superiors, and all the captains, and makes it up all the way to {{Physical God}}hood as a Captain. [[spoiler: The fact that he becomes, for a while, the most powerful being in Soul Society, is only the cherry on top.]]
* GreenLanternRing: His Bankai has a multitude of techniques with which to shape fire. [[StuffBlowingUp Lots of fire.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Dies after telling Izuru that he enjoyed his time with him and the rest of the division]].
%% HotbloodedSideburns
* TheMole: Before being made Captain his job was to go undercover and keep track of rebel elements, thought it's implied that he was discovered and [[SoMuchForStealth had to fight his way out]] on at least one occasion. [[spoiler: In the present day, [[EvilAllAlong he's the second one for]] [[BigBad Kumoi]], and by far the more competent one.]]
* MixAndMatchWeapon: UpToEleven, since we're talking a Hook-bladed {{BFS}}+ a afterburner {{BFG}} with massive amounts of fire as ammunition. There's even a massive Conch-shell hand-guard that acts as a very good shield.
* NiceGuy: He's sincere and compassionate about wanting to unify the various factions in the Soul Society military hierarchy, and he's an approachable and even-handed captain, hanging out with his men to get to know them better. [[spoiler: His desire for revenge just happens to be far greater than his good intentions and that wound up targeting innocent people who had no hand in his father's death.]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler: his bakkoutou negates other zanpakutos' abilities]]
%% PlayingWithFire: His Zanpakuto.
* PoorCommunicationKills: [[spoiler: He only saw the aftermath of the fight between Yamamoto and his father and didn't bother to get the full details about it. Only scraping bits and pieces of the truth and assuming the worst. It doesn't help that Yamamoto doesn't bother to ''say anything'' about this (granted at the time it was suppose to be a secret mission and Amagai's father have volunteered for it. So when he failed and Yamamoto had to mercy kill him, Yamamoto couldn't say anything, both wanting to protect Amagai and from discrediting the Gotei 13. But by this point in the story there was no need to do so).]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[spoiler:Or so the characters thought,]] especially since he's willing to believe Ichigo and let himself be branded a criminal in order to help him find the truth.
* RedRightHand: [[spoiler: His fully-released Bakkoto takes the form of a black dragon covering all his right hand, with a LaserBlade coming out the mouth to boot.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Commits [[{{seppuku}} suicide]] to atone for his crimes]].
* [[spoiler: RevengeBeforeReason: While trying to get revenge on Yamamoto, he throws Rurichiyo on his hit list because the Bakkuto were developed by her clan. Despite the fact that it was Kumoai alone who was developing them and she didn't even know about them, let alone had a hand in it.]]
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler: All the hard work put towards the rather revolutionary concept of interdepartmental cooperation is totally undercut by his betrayal and death.]]
* TragicVillain: [[spoiler: He's a nice guy, a very capable captain, but his drive to kill Yamamoto overrides it all.]]

!!'''Makoto Kibune'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/290px-Makoto_Kifune_3822.jpg

The third seat of the third division, who cares little for those he deems too weak.

-----
* BigFancySword: His Zanpakuto, Reppu, takes the form of a huge, oddly shaped glaive with three main blades.
* TheDragon: Or at least one after Hanza dies.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: To almost Aizen-level, he just doesn't have the whole compacity for planning ahead.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Consumed by his bakkoto. Izuru uses his ability to make it too heavy to fly, forcing him to use more and more of his power to compensate]].
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: His zanpakuto, Reppu can be thrown and controlled in mid-flight. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that it is his bakkoto that controls Reppu''s flight. What Reppu itself is actually capable of (besides being a really big, weirdly shaped blade) is never actually revealed.]]


!!'''Gyokaku Kumoi'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px-Gy333kaku_Kumoi_Public_ep186_5349.png

The steward of the Kasumioji clan, who wants to kill Rurichiyo and take control of the clan with a variety of plans. He has a force of assassins armed with the special weapons known as the bakkoto.
-----
%% * ArcVillain
* BigBadWannabe: He's certainly good at covering his tracks, and he's got plenty of resources, Bakkoto and assassins at his disposal, but he's little more than a flea compared to Amagai, who was TheMole under his wing.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: He kickstarted the conflict, but Amagai finished him off three episodes before the ending of the New Captain arc.
%% * EvilOldFolks
* VillainousBreakdown: As things start going wrong with his plans, he begins to panic.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Declares this on one of his own asssasins, whom he has executed.

!!'''Hanza Nukui'''

!!'''Ryu Kuzu'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/290px-Ryu_Kuzu_4234.jpg

One of Hanza's subordinates, who attacks Uryu.
-----
* ImprobableWeaponUser: His bakkoto looks a bit like a segmented, eyeless fish-thing.
* MasterOfIllusion: His bakkoto surrounds himself with mist and enables him to create illusionary shadows of himself to deceive his opponent.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Manages to escape from Uryu, but is killed by [[spoiler:Kibune]].

!! '''Muramasa'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/190px-Muramasa_Katana_7181.png

The spirit of an unknown Soul Reaper's sword. He takes the form of a flamboyantly dressed man with long fingernails. His special power is to "free" other ''zanpakuto'' spirits from their owners and make them follow their [[BrainwashedAndCrazy "inner instincts"]], which is usually to kill their wielders. He informs Ichigo that he [[SelfMadeOrphan killed his own Soul Reaper master]].
-----
* AlasPoorVillain: Ichigo feels that way about him. [[invoked]]
* AntagonistAbilities: MindManipulation, but invoked against the target's own zanpakutou spirit.
* BadassLongcoat: A rather flamboyant version, but still badass, considering he took down the Soul Society in ''one'' night for crying out loud!
* BigBad: Of the Zanpakuto Rebellion arc.
* DiabolusExMachina: Arguably can be said this happened when he had Sode No Shirayuki retreat before Rukia had a chance to try to turn her back to the good guys side which eventually leads to Sode No Shirayuki getting broken by Byakuya for him to test Byakuya's loyalty to him.
* MrFanservice: Trust us, he has dedicated fangirls.
* EvilPlan: Overthrow Soul Reaper rule of the Soul Society A lie to cover up his true goal of freeing his wielder.
* FillerVillain: He's this the Zanpakuto Unknown Tales arc, having orchestrated the Zanpakuto Rebellion and indirectly causing the emergence of the Toju in the Beast Swords mini-arc.
* KansasCityShuffle: Yamamoto sealed himself away, so he lied to the protagonists to get them to break the barrier for him so he could get at Yamamoto's memories. Also, the whole rebellion was one of these, so he could unseal his wielder, Kouga.
* LightIsNotGood: His outfit is mostly white and he organized the Zanpakuto rebellion.
* LifeDrinker: He was forced to absorb Hollows in order to keep himself going despite his wielder being dead, as shown when he visits the Forest of Menos. It also fits in with his MindControl abilities being described as "tapeworm-like" in nature.
* LoveMartyr: He remained loyal to Kouga even as he was mistreated and brutalized by him. ''Many'' years later, he's completely obsessed with freeing Kouga and reuniting with him. The expression of pure happiness when he succeeds only makes Kouga's [[YouHaveFailedMe reaction more cringe-worthy]].
* MasterOfIllusion: By feeding his reiryoku into his opponent's soul, Muramasa can cast a spell that distorts their senses in a variety of ways (i.e. [[DoppelgangerSpin creating realistic holographic illusions]], [[InterfaceScrew screwing with their sense of perception]], [[MindRape dredging up painful memories for a distraction]], ect.).
* MeaningfulName: Named after a real life Muramasa who was famous both for being an extremely skilled swordsmith and a mentally unbalanced one. As a result, his swords were believed to be cursed with an insatiable bloodlust, crying out for blood at night and refusing to be sheathed until they had tasted blood, even resorting to killing their owner (which is what Muramasa claimed he originally did to his master), and that anyone who owned a Muramasa sword would be driven insane by a need to kill indiscriminately (which is why his master Koga was originally sealed in the first place. Also, the first part in his name ("mura" = "village") is a homonym for the kanji for "unbalanced" or "unstable". Taken together, his name can be translated as either "justice of the village" which is what Koga thought he was to Soul Society or "unbalanced justice" which is what Ginrei accused Koga of doing as retaliation for having been framed.
* MindControl: His primary ability disrupts the balance between a Soul Reaper and their Zanpakuto, causing the latter to behave erratically and even attack its master. He can take this even by breaking into a Soul Reaper's inner world, forcibly manifesting their Zanpakuto spirit, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy exaggerating said spirit's "inner instincts", and turning it against its master.]]
* MoreThanMindControl: The above ability works by amplifying any existing resentment the zanpakuto is feeling towards its master.
* OneWingedAngel: 'When Koga abandons him, Muramasa's DespairEventHorizon causes him to Hollowfy, and he later transforms into a dome-shaped construct containing a replica of Koga's inner world, wherein he fights Ichigo in his normal appearance, but begins to Hollowfy there as well before Ichigo defeats him.
* PeoplePuppets: One of his secondary powers is to manifest invisible indestructible strings with which he can control or restrain people, as well as shield himself. The drawback? They only manifest in reflective surfaces (i.e. ice, clear water, building windows, ect.) and will be destroyed if said surface is distorted/destroyed, or if an attack's reflection hits the string's reflection (as Senbonzakura did to free Byakuya).
* SelfMadeOrphan: No longer has a wielder of his own due to killing them himself. [[ILied Or not.]]
* TearsOfBlood: Plenty of them, possibly a side effect of him being a LifeDrinker. They come out when he actually cries, too.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Claims he killed his master and encouraged the other zanpakutos to rebel. Turns out the rebellion was an EvilPlan to distract all of the Soul Reaper while he goes to free his master. Also inverted in that his master actually ''turned against him'' once unsealed due to his own perception of Muramasa refusing to obey his call.


!! '''Koga'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/290px-Koga_250_965.jpg

The owner of the ''zanpakuto'' Muramasa. He was very powerful and a great aid to the loyalists in a Soul Reaper rebellion, but some of the captains were afraid of him, so they framed him for murdering his own allies in order to get rid of Muramasa. He got back at them, eliminating any chance to prove his innocence. He went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge before eventually being defeated.
-----
* {{Badass}}: Held his own against Byakuya ''without using a zanpakuto'', instead fighting with [[ImprovisedWeapon the very spears used to seal him]]. If he actually got along with his sword, he'd be as [[GameBreaker broken]] as Aizen.
* BlessedWithSuck [=/=] CursedWithAwesome: Being able to control other people's swords isn't so great when your job description doesn't include fighting people with swords. [[spoiler:Then there's a civil war and you become so overtly powerful that some of the higher ups on the same side as you become scared of your power and frame you for attacking your own side.]]
* DeathByIrony: As he dies, Kouga calls out for his Zanpakuto, just after betraying him and casting him aside like a tool. Frustrated with Muramasa's unresponsive predicament, Koga calls out to him again, before losing his balance and drowning into a river. Meanwhile, the tired Byakuya is caught by his own zanpakutou before he can fall, contrasting Kouga's complete abandonment of Soul Reaper ideals of partnership between Soul Reapers and zanpakutou.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: His mind shattered when he realized he had commited a crime out of revenge for being framed, at which point he started honestly believing that everyone was out to get him.
* GenerationXerox: The way Koga seeks Ginrei's approval is ''exactly'' the same as [[spoiler: Rukia's seeking for Byakuya's approval]]. The scene of [[spoiler: Kouga reporting to Ginrei]] is even made uncannily similar to a flashback of Rukia reporting to Byakuya during the Soul Society arc.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Continuously felt this way regarding [[spoiler:Ginrei Kuchiki's acceptance of him.]]
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: [[spoiler:His biggest KickTheDog moment was when he literally kicked Muramasa. Repeatedly.]]
* MasterOfIllusion: This is Koga's own personal ability, he doesn't need Muramasa to use it.
* MiscarriageOfJustice: Koga pretty much slammed the door on this trope, as he didn't even give them a chance to prove him innocent or guilty, he took revenge on the accusing captains, and then when informed that this had pretty much annihilated any chance he would have been found innocent, he went nuts, which lead to his eventual sealing.
* PeoplePuppets: Both Koga and Muramasa have this ability.
%% * SealedEvilInACan
%% SuperpowerLottery: See the Blessed/Cursed entry, and [[ComboPlatterPowers that's just the beginning]].
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Why a lot of people feared Muramasa's powers, and thus Koga.
* UngratefulBastard: [[spoiler:After everything Muramasa did for him, he tosses him aside like yesterday's trash. It is increasingly obvious that he was never worthy of the devotion and love his ''zanpakuto'' had for him.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:Does this to Muramasa when he is unsealed, unaware and uncaring that Muramasa was not at fault in the least.]]

* BolivianArmyEnding: was last seen holding off a group of Gillians and Adjuchas. Since he fought them many times before, odds are he's still alive and kicking.
%% * MrFanservice
* MaskPower: He wears an assortment of Hollow masks on his body, mostly to serve as armor or Cero-deflecting shields.
* NemeanSkinning: The fur pelt slung over his shoulders. That leaves the question of where he got it, considering [[FridgeLogic Hollows disintegrate when killed]].
* TheStoic: A result of losing his friends five hundred years ago.

* PetalPower: His power consist in covering his opponents in flowers, paralyzing them. [[spoiler: He can also skewer them with petals.]]

A Soul Reaper and Rurichiyo's bodyguard. His Zanpakuto is Daichimaru.

* BladeOnAStick: Her sealed Zanpakuto takes the form of a sort of bladed staff.

* CombatPragmatist: As soon as she runs into Tatsuki, she tries to spear her in the head instead of introducing herself. She introduces herself after Tatsuki dodges her attack.

* MsFanservice: She's quite a beautiful woman, but this worked '''against''' her.

!!'''Nozomi Kujo'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/290px-Nozomi_Kujo_9295.png

->Voiced by: Creator/JulieAnnTaylor (English)

A Soul Reaper that was found in the Dangai, fleeing from the Soul Society with a rag to cover her figure. Inaba was after her for mysterious reasons.
-----
* ActionGirl: Why is Nozomi so powerful? [[spoiler:She's one-half of Yushima's soul, who had something of a low self-esteem because of his weaker fighting style]].
* AttackReflector: Nozomi's zanpakuto can absorb spiritual pressure attacks (such as those from other zanpakutos and Uryu's Quincy attacks) and strike back at her attacker(s) with that energy.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Compare her looks to Inaba. No surprise that he's the villain, and she's the heroine for the Invading Army arc.
%% Moved CreatorsPet trope. Please don't add back here.
* CustomUniformOfSexy: She wears a ''really'' short shihakusho with [[ZettaiRyouiki over-knee boots]] as her Soul Reaper uniform, which looks very similiar to Lisa's in [[WholeEpisodeFlashback Turn Back the Pendulum]].
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Wears one as part of her uniform, and she's evidently ''the most powerful female fighter'' in the series.
* DamselInDistress: [[spoiler:Finally Inaba has captured her and now is trying to... ehm... merge himself with her?]]
* EnergyAbsorption: [[spoiler: Her Zanpakuto can absorb Reishi, allowing her to take down even powerful opponents easily. No wonder that Inaba wants her out of his way.]]
* FlatCharacter: It was clear from the outset she was going to be a unique, special character, but a large part of the fandom views her as very poorly characterised.
* FusionDance: He is determined to fuse with Nozomi to gain her power. [[spoiler:They both only exist separately for a temporary purpose, having both originally been part of the same being.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: Her final goodbye to Kon. Dawww]]
* HealingHands: How she healed Ichigo.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: In the last moments when she in control of Ouko's body, she forces him to stab himself with a reishi blade to give Ichigo a fighting chance at beating him.]]
* MacGuffinGirl: Inaba wants her for some reason. [[spoiler: She and Inaba are the first Mod Souls to ever exist and were made by Ouko Yushima. Inaba needs her to unlock his true power.]]
* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler:She fades away once Ouko is beaten and the fusion breaks as she had forced Ouko to stabbed himself and weaken him enough for Ichigo to deal with him. This wound up draining the power keeping her and Inaba in existence.]]
* MagicKnight: Can use Kido, actually a similar ability, quite well, and quickly gets a Zanpakuto too.
* OppositeSexClone: [[spoiler:Of Ouko Yushima, the man who created her and Inaba.]]
* SetBonus: The method she used to defeat all those Reigai was to drain the reiatsu of about six or seven lieutenant-class Soul Reapers and four lieutenant-class humans all at once and throw it at the Reigai captains. Apparently, those lieutenant and humans didn't have enough power to defeat those four super-powered reigai captains, so AllYourPowersCombined quickly turned "not enough power" into "more than enough power".
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Officially became ''the'' most important female character in the current filler arc, completely replacing Rukia and Orihime so that they often ended up with almost no lines in episodes.
* StayInTheKitchen: Despite her powers, whenever she tries to interfere in a battle against the Reigai in episode 332, she's told to stay away. Considering [[CreatorsPet her status]], it could be seen as a TakeThat, but she managed to make a comeback... that failed to impress Yamamoto. Once she tried to make ''another'' comeback against Inaba, she failed ''again'', and gets captured.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Defensive and cold towards Kon, but less so around Ichigo. Her initial cold shoulder was explained indirectly by her [[spoiler:connection to Yushima. He may have been a ShrinkingViolet, but he held a low opinion on forming bonds, believing that that relying on others will only have them get in the way. Nozomi inherited that from him, if only for a while]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: In both her school and Soul Reaper uniforms.

!!'''Kageroza Inaba'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/290px-Inaba_Mugshot_1_8863.png

A Soul Reaper from the Department of Research and Development studying the Precipice World, and creator of the Reigai. His zanpakuto is Raiku.
-----

* AntagonistAbilities:
** AttackReflector: He has the ability to "record" any attack that enters his portals and record them for later use.
** ThinkingUpPortals: Can open a portal to deflect or avoid any attack or move freely.
** TimeStandsStill: His ability seems to be VillainTeleportation, but is more in line with this instead.
* BadassBookworm: Was able to beat an ([[WorfHadTheFlu admittedly weakened]]) Ichigo in a straight fight [[labelnote:*]]which includes blocking a Hollowfied Getsuga Tensho unscathed[[/labelnote]], even [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the fact that he's not relying on any cheap tricks (unlike a certain ''other'' MadScientist Soul Reaper). [[spoiler: He's the darker, unrestrained half of Yushima's soul, who was far weaker than either of his classmates at the Shino Academy]].
%% * BadBoss
* BerserkButton: He hates it when someone underestimates him. [[spoiler:He's the crazier part of Yushima's soul, who felt that he was TheScrappy since he wasn't as good at fighting while in the Shino Academy.]]
* BigBad: For the Invading Army arc.
* BladeOnAStick[=/=]DoubleWeapon: His Zanpakuto, Raiku.
* DepravedBisexual: He was a ''little'' close to Kon for comfort, and his interest in Nozomi brings up quite a few eyebrows. [[spoiler: Crosses over into ScrewYourself since him and Nozomi were created and based on their creator Ouko Yushima.]]
* DragonInChief: [[spoiler:He represents Yushima's unrestrained potential, so he's far more powerful than Yushima himself, and he personally instigated the Reigai uprising, but he's still loyal to Yushima, since part of the latters' soul makes up Inaba's personality.]]
* EvilCounterpart: Could argue he fills a similar niche to Szayel for Mayuri, but [[spoiler: he's much more clearly this to Nozomi. They were both "created from the same Reishi", and according to Kageroza himself, "want the same things"]].
%% * EvilLaugh
* EvilPlan: Kageroza is determined to fuse with Nozomi to gain her power. [[spoiler:His plan is to carry out the will of the original shinigami who split himself into two beings, Kageroza and Nozomi, to gain greater power.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: Pretty much obligatory for villains in Bleach.
%% * FillerVillain
* FusionDance: Kageroza is determined to fuse with Nozomi to gain her power. [[spoiler:They both only exist separately for a temporary purpose, having both originally been part of the same being.]]
* HiddenAgendaVillain: His goals were revealed fairly early on ([[HalfTruth created the Modsouls]]; created Reigai as payback for getting his Modsoul research shafted; and wanted to fuse with Nozomi to get her power), but his motivation was kept a secret until the last few episodes. In particular, [[spoiler:he's one-half of Yushima's soul, the real creator of the Modsouls, and he needed to fuse with Nozomi - the other half - in order to restore Yushima's sanity and boost the latters' power exponentially.]]
* IronicEcho: During his fight with Ichigo he states that he's not using "cheap tricks". [[spoiler: Then is revealed that his Zanpakuto can manipulate space, and Kenpachi calls him out for using "a cheap trick".]]
* MadScientist: Somewhat more overt about it than Aizen, though.
* MeaningfulName: "Kage" means "shadow", which fits really well when you consider he is [[spoiler: the dark half of Ouko's soul.]]
* MirrorMatch: [[spoiler: His zanpakuto powers allow him to create space portals, allowing him to absorb incoming attacks and send them back at will.]]
* MultiColoredHair: Green and blonde.
* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler: Once defeated and split back into two, both Nozumi and he start to fade havng used up all their energy fighting Ichigo]]
* OhCrap: When [[spoiler: Mayuri (disguised as his own Reigai)]] backstabs him.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He's specifically said to specialize in the Precipice World, but he also has quite a talent in creating Reigais. [[spoiler: But he has been revealed to be the one who created the Mod Souls and learned about the Precipice World afterwards in order to retrieve the data on Mod Souls that he hid there.]]
* PsychoRangers: The Reigai are copies of their Soul Reaper originals, with the same memories and abilities, but their personality differences are subtle, yet easy to spot out. [[spoiler: The bracelets the Reigai wore made it easy to spot them, but after losing them in 329 they [[PowerGlows glowed for a episode]]. Now the only way to tell the difference is their glowing purple eyes.]]
* SelfDuplication: [[spoiler: His zanpakuto can also create a decoy of himself.]]
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: You wouldn't believe it at first glance, but he gives '''Aizen''' a run for his money.
* StoryBreakerPower: The Reigai are rather overpowered, more so than their originals, and he's able to control time [[spoiler: and space]] itself. It worsens.
* NotSoStoic: only while fighting. FridgeBrilliance when you realize that his Zanpakuto command is "Go Mad". [[spoiler: Also when he realize that Mayuri swapped places with his own Reigai and has just stabbed his back with Ashisogi Jizo. After getting hit with a drug that stops all thoughts he was still able to attack Reigai Isane by acting on nothing but his own anger.]]
* SmugSnake: Has a rather petty motive (see HiddenAgendaVillain), values himself (far) over his subordinates, treats poor Nozomi (who's essentially his sister) like ''shit'', and would have lost his fight with Mayuri (pretty badly) were it not for a contingency plan that [[spoiler:Mayuri basically ALLOWED him to implement out of curiosity]]. He's a serious threat, alright, but it certainly doesn't justify his God complex. [[spoiler:Inaba is the vengeful and megalomaniacal portion of Yushima. It's the equivalent to a child imagining that he Curb-Stomped a few bullies, since he wasn't able to do so himself in reality. [[FridgeBrilliance Now, what if that child had the power to make that a reality, by splitting his soul into pieces that embody different aspects of his personality?]]. ]]
* SwordCane: Similar to the Zanpakto wielded by Yamamoto and Urahara, his takes the form of a silver cane while sealed.
* UpToEleven: [[spoiler: There's a ''stronger'' version of Unohana in his army.]]
%% * WouldHitAGirl: Poor Nozomi.

Ex-member of the 12th divison and founder of the project Spearhead. His zanpakuto was Sumitsuki Gasa.
-----
* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In the anime, he's [[spoiler: the creator of the Mod Souls]], however it was later explained in the manga that [[spoiler: Kirio Hikifune created the research that allowed the creation of both Soul Candy and Mod Souls]].
* AntagonistAbilities: In addition to the AttackReflector, ThinkingUpPortals, and TimeStandsStill abilities mentioned in Inaba's list, he also has:
** AreaOfEffect: His ultimate attack allows him to take any absorbed or produced energy and fire it as massive wave of destruction.
** EnergyAbsorption: He can take the abilities from any spiritual attack.
** PowerNullifier: He can also steal and reduce the power of any person he fights by making contact with either them or their zanpakutou.
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler:Since Inaba represents his darker side, it's ultimately Yushima that (indirectly) kickstarted the conflict in the Invading Army arc, and now that he's fused together with his counterparts, he's served as the FinalBoss. ]]
%% {{Bishonen}}
* BladeOnAStick[=/=]DoubleWeapon: [[spoiler: His Zanpakutou is a mix between Inaba's and Nozomi's Zanpakutou, making it a double headed glaive with straight blades and golden handle.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: If his last rant is any indication, he can't grasp how having friends can make Ichigo stronger then him.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: His own Reigai turn against him and stop his doomsday weapon from destroying Soul Society. Nozumi then manages to temporarily take control of his body and forces him stab himself with a reishi blade. Weakening him enough for Ichigo to finish off.]]
%% * MadScientist
* OutGambitted: [[spoiler: Believe it or not, its ''Kon'' who ultimately throws a wrench into his plans. Granted Kisuke did most of the science work but Kon the one that carries it out. Stopping Ouko from drinking the medicine that would make the fusion permanent and giving Ichigo the soul candy with reishi that temporarily restores his power. Never underestimate the comic relief.]]
* ShapingYourAttacks: His most powerful techniques takes this UpToEleven, forming a ''giant palace'' made of energy.
* StoryBreakerPower: Remember the space-manipulating powers displayed by Inaba and the energy-sucking powers of Nozomi? Yushima can do both things to a greater extent, and that's his ''Shikai''!
* TheManBehindTheMan: Played with; Nozomi and Kageroza are two halves of his soul turned into Modsouls, and their actions are, ultimately, a result of their connection to his original mindset.
* TooManyBelts: His new outfit at the end of episode 338 features a belt in the waist area and a smaller one in diagonal position under it. It's used to hold the sword sheathe, but the effect is the same.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: During his final battle with a fully powered Ichigo when he realizes that Ichigo was indeed much stronger then him all along. Once his doomsday plan is thwarted, he completely loses it, ranting that his philosophy of "friends making you weak" can't be wrong before Ichigo finishes him off.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He has naturally green hair.

A character from the first film, ''Memories of Nobody'', Senna is a mysterious girl with Soul Reaper powers whom Ichigo and Rukia encounter in the world of the living. Her zanpakuto is Mirokumaru.
-----
* BlowYouAway: Her zanpakuto's ability, [[spoiler:that's not really "hers" to begin with]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Seems to have little sense about how the real world works, possibly the result of [[spoiler:having many lost souls' memories inside her]].
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Wears one in her school uniform, and mopped the floor with those Blanks early in the movie, but she never fights in it.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Inverted. ''Years'' after appearing in TheMovie, she's seen sitting behind Ichigo in a restaraunt during a filler episode, but with her ribbon colored yellow (just as it was in her debut) instead of her trademark red.
* GenkiGirl: Very spunky, upbeat, fun-loving and carefree; a good counter to the normally scowling, HotBlooded Ichigo.
* GirlOfTheWeek: She's the main female protagonist for the first film, Memories of Nobody.
* HairColorDissonance: Hers is apparently black with a purple sheen. Similar to Yoruichi's manga hair colour.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In the end, Senna throws herself back into the disintegrating realm to SaveBothWorlds.]]
* IHaveTheHighGround: Likes high places, especially Ferris Wheels.
* MacGuffinGirl: as [[spoiler: the "Memory Rosary"]].
* MagicSkirt: She goes to [[IHaveTheHighGround high places]] and swirls her skirt around a lot, yet avoids having a PantyShot.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Averted; Ichigo's more of a scowling pseudo-delinquent than a brooding sulker, the romance aspect is far more subtle, and Senna herself is less of an airhead and more along the lines of a carefree fun-lover.
* MultipleChoicePast: She goes through several flashbacks to completely conflicting childhoods. [[spoiler:None of these memories belong to her.]]
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:A girl that looks and behaves ''exactly'' like her runs by Ichigo at the end, even making a cameo in episode 204]].

-----
* BigBad of the first movie, ''Memories of Nobody''.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Big scar at his forehead, traced diagonally down his left eye to the corner of his jaw.
* {{Revenge}}: Wants revenge on the Soul Society for exiling his people.
* ShapedLikeItself: "We are the clan of darkness, the Dark Ones." [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because "Dark Ones" is in English while the rest of the sentence is in Japanese, but it sounds funny when you translate it all into English.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Almost all of them.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sojiro_Kusaka.png

->Voiced by: Creator/AkiraIshida (JP), Creator/KeithSilverstein (EN).
The main antagonist in the second film, ''The Diamond Dust Rebellion'', Sojiro is an old friend and rival of Hitsugaya's, who attended the academy with him. It turned out that both of them had the zanpakuto Hyorinmaru, so in accordance with Soul Society laws, the two fought and Hitsugaya won [[labelnote:*]]Due to the fact that the higher ups ordered for him to be killed[[/labelnote]] [[spoiler: though partly because he was willing to attack Hitsuguya first to keep his zanpakuto. The "duel" was really a SecretTestOfCharacter which he failed]]. Kusaka, bitter about this, sought to destroy Soul Society with the Royal Seal.
-----
* AnIcePerson: Like Hitsugaya, he possesses Hyōrinmaru as a Zanpakuto, although his version of it is darker and resembles a Western dragon.
* BigBad: He is the main antagonist of the second film, ''The [=DiamondDust=] Rebellion''.
%% {{Bishonen}}: He is voiced by AkiraIshida after all.
* EvilCounterpart: Of Hitsugaya, they even have [[spoiler: the same zanpakuto]] and similar-sounding given names.
%% FireIceLightning: He has the Ice.
* ForgottenFallenFriend: He and Hitsugaya were friends and classmates in the academy. His fate ensured he was wiped from all record as ever having existed and those that had known about him, including Hitsugaya, kept their mouths shut until his reappearance.
%% * MaskPower
* PowerIncontinence: Knows Bankai but couldn't control it well.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: he is the main villain of the film and looks the part, too.
* {{Revenge}}: Against Soul Society for their unfair laws against him just for owning a similar zanpakuto.

->Ying voiced by: Creator/AyaHisakawa (JP), Creator/KateHiggins (EN)\\
Yang voiced by: Creator/{{Yukana}} (JP), TaraPlatt (EN)
Two young, teenaged, twin-like Arrancar girls that serve as Kusaka's joint-lieutenants during his bid to wipe out the Seireitei. Ying's the one with blue hair, Yan has red hair.
-----
%% * ActionGirl
* ClothingDamage: Never shown ''receiving'' it on-screen, but last they show up as humans, pieces of their clothes are ripped and torn, revealing a generous amount of skin and bruises to the camera.
* CoDragons: To Kusaka, who himself becomes a giant ice dragon at the climax of the film.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Both have one, modeled in a schoolgirl-like fashion, and apart from their OneWingedAngel forms, they always fight in 'em.
* DetachedSleeves: Their sleeveless white jackets show off their shoulders rather nicely.
* ElementalPowers: Yang has PlayingWithFire, Ying has ShockAndAwe; Yang can turn into a fireball, Ying can turn into a blue disk-like projectile. They even use their attacks in combination against Ichigo late into the second film, without much success.
* FacialMarkings: Similar to Apacci, Yang has two red circles over her red eyes, and Ying has two blue circles over her blue eyes.
* FireIceLightning: Yang (fire) and Ying (lightning) to Kosaka's Ice.
* GirlishPigtails: Unlike Loly, Ying has her pigtails descending downwards, instead of up.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: They're ''even shorter than Rukia'', and can still pack a punch.
* ShowSomeLeg: If you look at the picture-link to Yan's outfit from above, you can see that the inner-side portion of her legs are exposed, as well as the upper half of her thighs; same applies for her sister.
%% ThemeNaming:...'''GUESS'''.
* WhipItGood: Ying's got a whip that jolts out electricity. [[{{Squick}} Owch]], [[PowerPerversionPotential yet]] yummy.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: ''Ying'' has blue hair, Yang has red hair.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness / YouHaveFailedMe: After Kusaka fused with the Ouin and became a giant ice dragon, a battered, beaten Yang and Ying return to him, kneeling before him in slight embarrassment, before Kusaka nonchalantly froze them both.
** ''Subverted'', however, once we see two identical female-looking Hollows with the same abilities as Yang (fire) and Ying (electricity); by freezing them with the same ice that made up his dragon form, Kusaka essentially fused Yang and Ying together with him, allowing the energy from the Ouin to fully transform them into their Hollow forms and take on the Soul Reapers at the last act of the second film.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Very short schoolgirl-like skirts (red for Yang, blue for Ying), backed up by thigh-high sock-like stockings (red for Yang, blue for Ying), knee-high boots (black-colored with white outlines), arm-warmers (red for Yang, blue for Ying) and pigtails (for Ying).

->Voiced by: Creator/AyaHirano (JP), Creator/LauraBailey (EN)
She is Rukia's younger sister and her brother's older sister and one of the main antagonists in the third movie. She's highly possessive of Rukia, and wants to kill anyone who might come between the two of them.
-----
* AffablyEvil: Yes, she has issues, but at her core, she's a sweet, playful young girl, even if it's only towards Rukia.
* AlasPoorVillain: Rukia '''[[TearJerker certainly]]''' felt this way about her and Shizuku, as did Ichigo, Renji, Urahara ''and Byakuya''. [[invoked]]
* BigBadDuumvirate: Shares the role of [[BigBadDuumvirate joint-antagonist]] with her younger brother in the third movie ''Fade to Black'', but usually doesn't participate in a fight, instead acting as backseat support in that regard. To compensate, she has the most screen time and dialogue out of the two siblings, mainly because of her interactions with Rukia throughout the movie. She caused ''quite'' a finale [[spoiler: by fusing Shizuku and Rukia with herself and unleashing that GiantMook of a Mayuri experiment on the captains and lieutenants]]. Bonus points for her being the very first female BigBad in the series.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Not nearly as psychotic or extreme as Loly, but she had potential there, and a good excuse for it.
* CreepyChild: Her hair and unnatural skin tone are pretty creepy.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Always wore one, but never fights in it, though her MassTeleportation is used to help ''Shizuku'' fight instead.
* DeadAllAlong: She and her brother were [[spoiler:killed and possessed by a memory-stealing parasitic Hollow while protecting Rukia]].
* ForgottenChildhoodFriend: Rukia took her and her brother in and looked after them, but due to being hit by the memory-stealing Hollow's scythe she forgot all about them.
* FusionDance: With Shizuku and Rukia, making Dark Rukia.
* TheGlomp: Fond of doing this with Rukia.
* HeroicSacrifice: She and her brother [[spoiler:took a Hollow into their bodies to save Rukia from a possessed Soul Reaper]].
* MagicSkirt: She wears a ''really'' short skirt, but avoids any sort of PantyShot from the camera.
* MassTeleportation: Can not only teleport herself and other people, but can even teleport ''buildings''.
* MeaningfulName: Her name put together with Shizuku's means "a strong shine".
%% MsFanservice: Milder compared to some of the other girls, but she's still ''pre~tty'' attractive.
* ThemeTwinNaming: In addition to the already-noted MeaningfulName, "''Homura''" means "flame" while "''Shizuku''" means "drop".
* {{Yandere}}: Homura wants Rukia to herself, and is more-than willing to go through any Soul Reaper that gets in her way.

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiKamiya (JP), Creator/RichardCansino (EN)
He is Rukia's younger brother and one of the two main antagonists in the third movie. He erases people's memories of Rukia, as well as many of her own, in order to stay together with her forever, although he appears to be more emotionally stable than his sister.
----
* BigBadDuumvirate: Shares it with Homura in the third movie ''Fade to Black'', being the one that personally erased almost everyones' memories of Rukia.
%% * CreepyChild
* TheDragon: While he [[BigBadDuumvirate shares the role of main antagonist]] with his older sister, he has relatively less screen-time and lines than his sister, whom he seems to be fairly loyal and obedient to most of the time.
* DeadAllAlong: He and his sister were [[spoiler:killed and possessed by a memory-stealing parasitic Hollow while protecting Rukia]].
%% MrFanservice: Okay, deathly white skin notwithstanding, he's still rather nice-looking.
* ForgottenChildhoodFriend: To Rukia, as the Hollow erased her memories of him and his sister.
* FusionDance: With Homura and Rukia, making Dark Rukia.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Took a hollow into their bodies to save Rukia from a possessed Soul Reaper]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Can erase people's memories with his weapon of choice.
%% * LooksLikeCesare
* MeaningfulName: His name put together with Homura's means "a strong shine".
* SinisterScythe: A manifestation of the Hollow, which can erase memories.
* ThemeTwinNaming: In addition to the already-noted MeaningfulName, "''Shizuku''" means "drop" while "''Homura''" means "flame".

An evil, Hollowfied version of Rukia possessed by Homura and Shizuku.
----
* BadassCape: Wears a tattered red cape with a HighCollarOfDoom.
* BattleAura: Has one formed of black and purple reiatsu, which Byakuya and Renji state is increasingly reminiscent of a Hollow's.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: As her Hollowfication progresses during her fight against Ichigo, her eyes turn solid black.
* BreakoutVillain: Has been featured as a playable character in ''Bleach: Heat the Soul 6'' and ''Heat the Soul 7''.

* FusionDance: Was created when Homura and Shizuku merged with Rukia.
* HellishPupils: Her pupils are vertical slits.
* IllKillYou: Pretty much the only thing she says during her fight with Ichigo.
* KaleidoscopeEyes: As her Hollowfication advances she goes from having purple irises with slitted pupils to having solid black eyes.
* LightningBruiser: While Ichigo was holding back due to her being his friend and all, she managed to easily overpower him and would have killed him if Byakuya hadn't intervened.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Her hair and irises are purple.
* SinisterScythe: Wields the same double-bladed scythe Shizuku does.
* SlasherSmile: When she was about to decapitate Ichigo she breaks out in a maniacal grin.
* SwordBeam: More like Scythe Beam, but she can fire black-and-purple reiatsu from her scythe.
* TeleportSpam: She frequently teleports during her fight with Ichigo to catch him off guard.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Speaks with Homura's, and Shizuku's voices layered over each other.
* WomanInWhite: Wears a tattered white kimono.

!!'''Kokuto'''

->Voiced by: Creator/KazuyaNakai (JP), Creator/TravisWillingham (EN)
A Togabito of Hell, damned due to commiting henous crimes for the sake of his dying sister that allies himself with Ichigo and his gang.
-----
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy]]: [[spoiler:After he reveals he was EvilAllAlong, he [[LargeHam rants]] about how [[RageAgainstTheHeavens unfair it was that he was damned]] for avenging his sister's murder, that he wants everyone to suffer like he has, and that he will escape Hell even if it means dragging it into the World of the Living.]]
* {{Badass}}: In a departure for Bleach characters in general, he almost completely lacks powers, magic, gimmicks, or power ups of any kind. He has only two tricks: He can whip around the NighInvulnerable chains connecting him to hell to defend from attacks, and he also has a generic sword beam that he rarely uses and never does anything significant with. Despite this, he's able to simultaneously take out three villains who gave Ichigo and co. a hard time and [[spoiler: beat the shit out of Ichigo fairly easily]] using nothing but strength, skill, and quick thinking.
* BadassBaritone: He has a very deep voice and is very badass. [[spoiler:Doubles as EvilSoundsDeep.]]
* BarrierWarrior: [[spoiler:He can activates a shield which withstands against Hollow Ichigo's Cero!]]
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: Upon witnessing Ichigo fighting Ulquiorra in his second Hollow form, he quickly spread rumours about it in Hell, saying that it had the power to break open the gates of Hell, hoping that someone would take advantage of that information and lure Ichigo to Hell. Guess what Shuren decides to do.]]
* [[spoiler:BigBad]]: [[spoiler:In the fourth movie ''The Hell Verse'', he's ultimately the one responsible for tricking Shuren into kidnapping Yuzu, but it isn't until the final act that we learn of it. ]]
* BigNo: When [[spoiler: Ichigo is pulled out of Hell before his chains are broken]].
-->"'''KUSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!'''".[[labelnote:*]]"DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!"[[/labelnote]]
** Doubles as PrecisionFStrike.
** Subverted in the dub when he just lets out a scream.
** Also ''reversed'' in dub. When Kokuto [[spoiler: is dragged back down to the deepest pits of hell]] in the original, he just screams but in the dub he activates this trope.
* {{Bishounen}}: A nice-looking dude in his own right, [[spoiler:until he takes off his bandages]].
* BlackSwordsAreBetter: Is the trope image. Fittingly, his name means literally "black sword".
* BullyingADragon: Deliberately provokes [[spoiler: Ichigo into Hollowfying by killing his friends and showing him his sister's corpse, and further goads him into spamming Ceros to destroy the cursed chains binding him to Hell]].
* ChewingTheScenery: How Kazuya Nakai didn't need lung surgery after all the screaming he did in this film is anyone's guess.
* CoolSword: Wields a jagged black katana-like sword.
* CurbstompBattle: '''[[spoiler: Kills three of the main characters]]''' in '''''30 seconds'''''.
* CursedWithAwesome: The chains that keep him in Hell prevent him getting free, but he uses them as effective weapons, especially defensely.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:His little sister's murder was his StartOfDarkness]].
* DeathByIrony: His true objective is to [[spoiler:break open the gates of Hell and break the chains connected to his body that keep him down there. The only thing strong enough to do both of these is the Cero of Ichigo's second hollow form. Once Skullclad Ichigo destroys the rest of Kokuto's chains, a bunch more chains to sprout out of the crater left by Ichigo, which then literally drag Kokuto down into the deepest pits of Hell.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilAllAlong]]: [[spoiler:It turns out Kokuto was the skeleton seen at the beginning of the movie, and was the one who manipulated Shuren and co. into attacking Ichigo in the first place.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilIsHammy]]: [[spoiler:He becomes really hammy after he's revealed himself to be EvilAllAlong.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilSoundsDeep]]: [[spoiler:Not only he's the true mastermind of the movie and is more evil than Shuren, his voice is much deeper, too.]]
* FacialHorror: His scar, which is normally covered up by his clothes and wrappings. It covers not just [[TwoFaced half his face]] but [[BodyHorror the entire left side of his]] ''[[BodyHorror body]]''.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:Honestly getting a bit tired of typing ''dragged into the deepest pits of Hell'' over here.]]
* [[spoiler:ForTheEvulz]]: He kills [[spoiler:Renji, Uryu, Rukia and Yuzu. Why? ''Just to piss Ichigo off''. Somewhat subverted though once you realize that Kokuto specifically wanted Ichigo to get angry and desperate enough to turn transform into his second Hollow Form as a Cero from that would destroy his chains and release him from Hell.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: [[spoiler:Evil. The right side of his body is horribly scarred.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller]]: [[spoiler:It's only really shown by the time it's revealed he was EvilAllAlong, where he demolishes Ichigo's entire group ''single-handed''. He even takes it literally; he's got ''the'' highest body count of named characters within the series: slices Garogai in half, dumps Gunjo and Taikon into lava, slashes (what's left of) Shuren apart and stabs straight through Rukia, Ishida and Renji without a problem.]]
* ImplacableMan: Crosses over to NighInvulnerability. [[spoiler:He gets dumped into a pool of lava and his clothes don't even get charred; he '''[[IsThatTheBestYouCanDo laughs off]]''' [[IsThatTheBestYouCanDo a cero from Ichigo's Super Hollow Form]] (granted he had a shield up), and survives a point blank ''[[KillItWithFire Flaming Getsuga Tensho]]''. In the end, he's not even killed - just sealed away.]]
* {{Irony}}: He wants to remove the chains from his body so he can get free from Hell, but he uses them as powerful combat weapons. Becomes DramaticIrony and [[spoiler:when he finally succeeds to break them, only to get even more chains all over his body and being dragged even deeper to Hell.]]
* TheLancer: In the FiveManBand setting in the movie, he's the Lancer to [[TheLeader Ichigo]].[[note]]Renji is TheBigGuy, Ishida is TheSmartGuy, and Rukia is TheChick.[[/note]] [[spoiler:Well, until it's revealed that he's the ManBehindTheMan.]]
* LargeHam: [[spoiler:After revealing his real personality.]]
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Played Bleach Soul Resurrección? Then you already know everything about him before the movie's even out. For a comparison, Resurrección came out in September 2011, Hell Verse wasn't dubbed until ''November 2012''.
* LavaIsBoilingKoolAid: He can keep going even after being dumped in a pool of boiling lava.
* LightningBruiser: Extremely fast, strong and tough. Even more than Ichigo's Bankai form.
* LikeABadassOutOfHell: [[spoiler:His goal was to get Ichigo to Hollowfy and use his Cero to destroy the chains binding him to Hell so that he could escape, and he almost succeeded]].
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Humans go to hell if they commit a sin while alive. His sin was to avenge his little's sister's death.
* MagicPants: [[spoiler: He gets dunked in a pool of lava and emerges from it completely unharmed; his clothes aren't even charred, let alone burned.]]
* [[spoiler:ManBehindTheMan]]: [[spoiler:To Shuren. He is the one who planned that Ichigo have to come to Hell. Shuren never knew it.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Kokuto" means "black sword". Guess his WeaponOfChoice?
* MulticoloredHair: [[spoiler:The hair we can see is white, the hair underneath his bandages is grey.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Ichigo sympathizes with him over the fact that they're both big brothers who would do anything to protect their siblings. In the dub however, he sympathizes with over the fact that they're both human...[[DubInducedPlothole huh]]?
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: According to [[ExactWords himself]], he's on a ''permanent'' one of these.
* SwordBeam: Can use them, but he doesn't use them often.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: [[spoiler:The last trailer for Hell Verse had no problem in establishing that Kokuto was EvilAllAlong despite it being a [[ShockingSwerve major twist]], The trailer even opened up with the scene of Kokuto taunting Ichigo with Yuzu's corpse.]] To be fair, it was released ''after'' the movie came out.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Opens his shirt towards the end of the film, Played straight towards the end where [[ClothingDamage his shirt is destoyed]].
* WalkingSpoiler: It's very difficult to trope him without revealing too much about his role in the film.

* MissingTrailerScene: Pretty much ''every'' trailer for the movie had him say "Welcome to Hell" as Ichigo and co. arrive. Despite that, he never says it in the movie, Kokuto does.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: While he starts to reform seconds after being killed by Ichigo, Kokuto has a VillainousBreakdown and stamps him out of existence.

A minute or so later, you see it hit the ''edge of Hell'' [[FunnyBackgroundEvent in the background where it detonates, causing an explosion the size of a nuke]]]].
* OnlyMostlyDead: [[spoiler: He, along with all the other Togabito ramp this UpToEleven. Killing him means squat as he'll just be reborn in a pool of lava in the bottom level of hell.
