     Royal Dimension 

Kirio Hikifune

Former Captain of Squad 12. Creator of the Gikongan. A member of the royal guard.

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Delivers one to Kensei during his rampage post Resurreccion. She even is able to keep him from crushing her momentarily despite having just come off a battle with the 5th most powerful togabito.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Beating Geo, the #5
  • Red Oni: To Shutara's blue in her few appearances thus far.
  • The Password Is Always "Swordfish": Regarding her access code to allow certain levels of access to certain things within the Royal Dimension from the Soul Society like gathering Marianne's reishi particles in order to revive her existence.

Oetsu Nimaiya

A member of the royal guard. Creator of the Zanpakuto


A member of the royal guard.

Senjumaru Shutara

A member of the royal guard. Her Shikai is Kyutai Oko Kumo (Orb Weaver Spider). Her Bankai is Kyojin Kyutai Oko Kumo Joo (Goliath Orb Weaver Spider Queen).

  • All Men Are Perverts: Her belief as to why Osho, Tenjiro and Nimaiya have forgiven and forgotten Marianne's attempts to assassinate the Soul King.
  • Animal Motifs: A spider when her Zanpakuto is released
  • Blue Oni: Made this to Hikifune's red in her few appearances thus far.
  • Bolivian Army Ending: The last we've seen of her is holding out against Aizen's mooks until such a time to which the protagonists are ready to leave Aizen's domain. She is not in the best of shape.
    • She survives, but needs some artificial arms to replace the ones she lost to Nyra.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: 'Spin your web, Kyutai Oko Kumo', 'Bankai: Kyojin Kyutai Oko Kumo Joo'.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: As an original Shinigami, she's known Rita for thousands of years, but never really got to know her; it's not until she acts as Rita's wingman during the final battle that the two spend any time together, and Shutara tells Rita what she thinks. Too bad Nyra then shows up to force Rita to head on to Aizen without her; she wins anyway.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Bankai adds more than just her usual artificial limbs.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: To anyone who would fight her. trash talker she is not.
  • Shout-Out: Her Zanpakuto lets her sling webs.
  • The Stoic: Shown to be this way.

Tenjiro Kirinji

A member of the royal guard. Unohana's sensei during her time at the academy, facilitated her training in healing kido (also called Kaido). Inventer of the hot springs.

The Soul King

Ruler of the Soul Society. He goes by many names including Magistrate, Thaddeus Gigantus Hugo III , C, and The Collective Unconsciousness Of Humanity.

  • A Father to His Men: “Men” referring to all of the denizens of the Soul Society in this case, but the Soul King doesn’t interfere with his subjects in the hopes that they might surprise them. And they have.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Because anyone that gazes upon his true form's face will Go Mad from the Revelation.
  • A God Am I: Subverted. When Unohana asks if the Soul King considers himself a god, he replies that he is simply a more complex life form.
  • All-Powerful Bystander: Even more so than Rita in terms of power.
    • Played with, in that he has taken direct action a number of times in the past, but always using one of his alter egos, like Feluca Tetelra Sharaymin, who is considered the founding father, or rather mother, of the Shinigami arts. Examples include stopping Rita's fight with Yamamoto, and The Ragnarok Connection.
    • He was able to send Physical God form Aizen, who had just shrugged off attacks from Rita, Lelouch, Unohana and Ichigo, amongst others, clear across the room as though it were as simple as flicking a speck of dirt off his shoulder. And he did it multiple times.
  • Berserk Button: Not so much berserk as it is the “Getting Him to Do Something” Button, but don’t say and show that you have the power to kill him or he will leave his throne to come take matters into his own hands.
  • Big Good/Bigger Bad: It depends on whether you side with Aizen or not on what the Soul King is. Yes, he created hollows and togabito to separate the pure from evil and lets the world continue in the chaos. However, that’s because he wants to give hope, free will and desire.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: In his true form.
  • Fantastic Racism: Calls Rita a squirrel rather than crediting her as a Soul Reaper.
  • God-Emperor: Is this for the Soul Society.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Anyone who gazes upon his true form is sure to do this, though apparently of the three that have, one has not. [[spoiler: When he stops bothering to hide it, he kind of has similarities to Mr Popo.
  • God in Human Form: Has plenty of these, none of which seem the least bit connected in any fashion other than to prove that this guy (girl?) really does stand above the rest of the characters.
  • I Have Many Names: Flat out says this word for word.
  • In the Hood: His true form has him sporting this.
  • Nightmare Face: His true form is nothing worth noting, but it’s implied that his face is what truly causes the Go Mad from the Revelation part.
  • Omniscience: Of the limited variety.
  • Reality Warper: He created the first hollows and blessed Rita, Yamamoto and others with the power of the first Soul Reapers.
  • Reality Warping Is Not a Toy: He clearly understands this.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Surprisingly. He let Unohana have her way when she presented a convincing argument about no longer needing the Central Forty Six and he even admitted he was wrong about Rita when she proved her loyalty to him.
    • However, Rita consistently gets on his nerves with her various requests; it comes back to bite him in the end.
  • Reset Button: He restores everyone to full strength, even Aizen, after he makes his grand entrance to the battlefield before departing, signaling the battle to restart now that all the cards are out on the table and Rita has been given her full power back.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Normally averted as he prefers to sit back and watch, but when Lelouch Seems like he’s making a Face–Heel Turn and shows that he does indeed have the power to bring the Soul King to his knees, the man takes action.
  • Sinister Scythe: His Weapon of Choice
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Once Feluca is removed
  • Telekinesis
  • The Chessmaster: The ENTIRE PLOT was his idea. He is the FIFTH CHESSMASTER.
  • The Grim Reaper: His true form
  • The Maker: He is this too.
  • The Prophecy: Lets Marianne into squad Zero because he thinks she will be responsible for great changes in the future. He's DEAD right; the change is getting rid of him!
  • Winged Humanoid
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: The outfit of his true form mixes black with white and has a black angelic wing, but a white demonic one.
    • Playing with Dizzy's wings, anyone?


     Other Soul Reapers 

Koga Kuchiki

Muramasa's master and Byakuya's uncle. Was sealed away by Ginrei Kuchiki, Byakuya's grandfather only to be released by Muramasa and outright killed by Byakuya and Hisana

  • Final Boss: Unlike the anime, Koga is the last to die in the Zanpakuto Rebellion. Muramasa dies a chapter earlier
  • You Bastard!: Shouts this at the top of his lungs when Byakuya tricks him into focusing on battling him so that he doesn't see Hisana's attack coming, which wipes him out.

Yachiru Hekira

Former Squad 13 Lieutenant, predating Kaien Shiba. She was a woman with long pink hair. As her name would suggest, this is the Yachiru of whom Kenpachi names his Yachiru after. There's not much resemblance between the two of them besides the hair color, albeit Hekira's is of a lighter shade, but it's understandable why Kenpachi respects her given that she was basically his mentor. Killed by Vanguard, hence Kenpachi's desire to kill him.

  • Action Girl
  • Badass Normal: She doesn’t have a sword release and is considered a captain class vice-captain. Her Zanpakuto is a claymore, which only further details that she has a lot of reiatsu.
  • Blood Knight: Is this, but a lot less crazed about it.
  • Post Humous Character
  • Unwanted Assistance: Feels this way toward Kenpachi, within good reason since there’s not much he can do.

Shiro Inzuri

5th Seat of 11th Division, and self-proclaimed 12th Kenpachi. Killed by Kenpavhi Zaraki. His Zanpakuto is Karune Hasami (Carnage Scissors)

Only quincies that make a notable appearance in Soul Chess should be in this folder. The rest can be found here

As Nodt

A feminine looking quincy with the power to induce fear on others. He is first shown reducing a bunch of togabito to gibbering cowards before they explode on the spot.

Bambietta Basterbinne

A young woman the same age as Riruka so in 2021 both are full grown adults. She is first seen Shooting a Togabito with her bow and counts that that’s the 370th togabito she’s slaughtered


Yhwach’s right hand. First shown Blowing up a bunch of togabito in a way that would make Michael Bay cream his jeans

Ryuken Ishida

Uryu’s father. Director of Karakura Hospital Until it had to be rebuilt. Now it’s not clear what he’s up to, but he’s still a doctor. He shows up in chapter 190 to fight Kasumi’s Hell on Earth and notes that he called the Vandenreich to help out as well.


The Emperor of the Vandenreich, now allies of Soul Society because of Lelouch's intervention to spare the Quincies far earlier, has now gotten involved in the Permanent Sinner arc. He is killed in the final battle by Aizen.

Good thing Tally’s got those hollow powers]].



A gigantic hollow formed by Apache, Mila Rose and Sun-Sun combining their powers together. Allon is powerfull enough to wipe the floor with vice-captains without effort.

  • Curbstomp Battle: Zigzagged; [[Rangiku comes off much better, just being put through a building instead of having part of her torso removed, but Momo not much better than canon. Chojiro, Tetsuzaemon, Kiyone and Ryo reinforce them, but get dealt with pretty easily, though it does give Isane time to heal Momo. Kukaku makes a decent attempt at holding him off till Ichigo arrives, and while he takes his time in bifurcating him, he's never in any danger of losing.]]


An alternate personality existing within Tatsuki. Arisa is the part of Soifon’s spiritual power that helped Tatsuki’s powers grow. She has part of Soifon’s knowledge and is the part of Tatsuki of which all her powers are destroyed. Considering she is The Superego of Tatsuki’s internal Freudian Trio that makes a lot of sense.


Another alternate personality that exists within Tatsuki. Kaibun takes over when her host loses control of her powers and Kaibun manifests. She has only been seen once so not much is known about her at this point. It turns out she is to Tatsuki what Zanpakuto Spirits are to their owners. However, because Tatsuki is not a Soul Reaper, Kaibun manifested herself all on her own as the extra energy that could not become a Zanpakuto and acts, in her own words, to preserve Tatsuki’s life, though it seems more that Kaibun takes control only when Tatsuki is in a prolonged fight leading to speculation that she is like Ichigo’s inner hollow in some ways

Karin Kurosaki

Ichigo's younger twin sister.

  • Shipper on Deck: Actually thinks her dad and Hisana would look good together. If only she knew all of the facts.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After Ichigo goes away to college, Karin picks up the slack work for defending people in Karakura Town from your average Jerkass, though mostly she defends Yuzu.

Yuzu KurosakiKisaragi

Ichigo's younger twin sister. She assumes a maternal role in the Kurosaki household. Now a doctor and married to one Yuichi Kisaragi, a vet.

  • Incest Subtext: Between her and Ichigo. The author seems to love encouraging it.
