** [[Characters/BleachAizenAndHisCohorts Sosuke Aizen]] is a sociopathic {{Ubermensch}} with [[AGodAmI a god complex]] who considers himself above the notions of morality and decency adopted by "lesser beings." Uncaring for anyone but himself, Aizen has a habit of using and betraying anyone close to him. Examples of this include [[MadScientist testing out an experiment]] by turning his former captain, Shinji Hirako, into a monstrous abomination along with seven other Shinigami officers, trying to kill his subordinate Harribel once she had outlived her usefulness, and impaling his devoutly loyal lieutenant, Momo Hinamori, while hugging her, leaving her traumatized for months. Later, Aizen would outdo himself by [[MasterOfIllusion creating illusions]] that tricked Momo's best friend, Hitsugaya, into nearly killing her. Aizen also used Wonderweiss Margera as a tool, erasing all of his intelligence, speech, memory, reasoning and emotions just to turn him into a PowerNullifier against one man's weapon. Once Wonderweiss had successfully absorbed the flames of this person's weapon, Aizen had arranged it so that Wonderweiss self-destructed, nearly taking out a city with him in the process. Finally, when Aizen had achieved {{Physical God}}hood, he tested out his abilities by calmly walking through a human city, knowing that his powers caused anyone who came into close proximity with him to blow up. In the end Aizen ended up killing over a dozen civilians, and planned on doing the same to [[TheHero Ichigo Kurosaki's]] human friends just so he could mock Ichigo by hanging up their corpses on display.
