Keeping that pimp hand strong
Bleach Quest is a now-abandoned Quest by hit Quest maker, Rihaku. It's ... it's set in Bleach. You can tell this from the title.

Join us as we completely break the setting and or die horribly. That's always fun.

The quest revolves around Ishida Uryuu, a man who is desperately trying to become the main character. He seems to have succeeded for now, but will he succeed in the long term?

So come, join us, and become the Main Character.

Not be confused with Cosgrove's Bleach Quest.


  • Adjusting Your Glasses: Uryuu adjusts his by the bridge. He finds the time to do so even in a death match with Byakuya.
  • Affably Evil: Aizen
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Ishida, when staring down near certain death from Byakuya.
  • Annoying Arrows: Earlier on, Ishida's unaugmented arrows mostly were this to Renji. To Ishida's considerable frustration.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Ishida likes Orihime, Orihime likes Ichigo, and Ichigo knows nothing.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Ishida.
    • Aizen and Ulquiorra count as well.
    • Advertisement:
    • Urahara
  • Badass Bookworm: Ishida, most of the Karakura Gang, and Aizen count to varying degrees.
    • Special mention goes to Urahara for being the one of the few people Aizen is extremely reluctant to engage.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Ichigo unlocks Bankai by sheer force of will in ten seconds. In canon, Urahara states that a minimum of three days is required using his method and it otherwise takes centuries.
  • Bullet Hell: Ishida loves to subject his enemies to this.
  • Cannibalism Superpower: Aizen has Hollowified Ashido with the intention of Ashido's Hollow devouring all Hollows in existence, and then Arracnarizing him in order to gain a Worthy Opponent.
  • Cast from Lifespan: Uryuu's modified version of the Sanrei glove training. It caused his power to swell to enormous heights, but cut his life expectancy in half.
  • Cessation of Existence: What Quincies inflict on the souls they kill when they use their powers.
  • Advertisement:
  • Combat Pragmatist: Many people have shades of this, but Ishida and Gin are the strongest examples in the story. The latter especially.
  • Cool Sword: The Skyfather Bolt deserves its own entry.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Orihime and Ganjyu, most prominently.
  • Damaged Soul: Ishida's soul.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Letz Stil, just as in canon.
    • A Visored mask. Ichigo loses control of his, and if not for Ishida's intervention would have killed innocent people.
  • Deader Than Dead: What happens to people a Quincy kills, and what happens to them if they're eaten by a Hollow.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Yoruichi and Byakuya's, to be specific.
  • Determinator: Uryuu, so very much.
  • Disability Superpower: Ishida considers inducing this in himself in order to further his command over Ransotengai.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Uryuu is briefly distracted by Yoruichi's. And by Orihime's. Hallibel's too.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Ryuuken, when he enters Los Noches in order to chastise Uryuu for not attending classes.
  • Face–Heel Turn: From the perspective of his friends, Ishida pulled one.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Uryuu and Ichigo have one.
    • It's not so friendly anymore.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Despite being an archer first and foremost, Ishida's current most potent attack is the Skyfather Bolt.
  • Heroic Second Wind: Ishida got one against Byakuya as he began to understand Byakuya's conflict and saw how to persuade him to join their side.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Ishida mentally berates Ganjyu for ogling Orihime when he was doing exactly that himself just a few moments ago.
  • I'm Having Soul Pains: Does Uryuu ever. The pain is so bad he can't even remember his own name.
  • Jerkass with a Heart of Gold: Ishida can be this at times. Ryuuken also supposed to be this at heart, but he hides it much, much better than his progeny.
  • Locked into Strangeness: After Ishida's hair bleached after he finished his Sanrei training.
  • Lonely at the Top: By joining Yoruichi and Byakuya as one of the big players, it is implied there will be a disconnect between Uryuu and his weaker friends.
  • Magikarp Power: Implied to be a lot of Uryuu's Techniques, but special mention goes to Kido Absorption.
  • Magic Missile Storm: Essentially what Ishida pulls all the time in combat.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: The flesh is flayed from Ishida's hand to the point where his fingers are shiny bone, and he barely pays it any mind.
  • Mask of Power: Gin has one.
  • Moral Event Horizon: In-universe, Ichigo tell Ishida that if he takes away Ichigo's powers, they're through. Orihime tells Ishida that if helping him gain his powers means that he'll use them to hurt Ichigo, then she wishes she'd never met Ishida.
  • More Dakka: The cornerstone of one of Ishida's most successful strategies.
  • Mundane Made Awesome:
    • The power of a Quincy who is also a tailor!
    • As Ishida, Aizen, and Tousen ascend into the sky, all three adjust their glasses.
  • My Name Is Ichimaru Gin
  • Naked First Impression: Yoruichi's reveal to Uryuu, natch.
  • People Puppets: Ishida is capable of doing this to people, but is currently unskilled at it.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Almost everyone.
  • Physical God: Aizen and Yamamoto might as well be this. Even the extremely powerful Captains and Ishida, some of the strongest souls to ever exist, are like insects before a storm.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: Ishida's Sanrei Glove training dyed his.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: Uryuu loves his, and gripes to Yoruichi when she convinces him to withdraw despite him having just used one-liners that will never again be so appropriate.
    • He finally gets one fighting Barragan. "Those aren't stars."
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Ishida to Barragan.
  • Pulling Themselves Together: Ishida is capable of this, to the point where he can substitute thread for entire organs. Temporarily at least.
  • Pure Energy: What Quincies use and fashion to their purposes.
    • Charged Attack: The purpose of the Overchannel ability.
    • Energy Absorption: The cornerstone of how a Quincy gathers power, and Ishida is learning how to this to enemy Kido.
    • Energy Bow: Was there ever any doubt? Ishida's primary dispenser of superior firepower.
    • Homing Projectile
    • Laser Blade: Ishida has been known to pull these out every now and then.
    • Rain of Arrows: Uryuu has at one point "blocked out the moon" with the amount of arrows he can fire. His rate of fire has only gone up since then.
  • Red Right Hand: Ishida gains one as he creates the Skyfather Bolt in order to keep his powers from burning him out. All the flesh from his hand has been obliterated in doing so and cannot be restored. Shortly after, he joins Aizen.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Byakuya gave his to Ishida.
    • Upon defecting to Aizen's side, Ishida returns it.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Ishida and Ryuuken have them. Ishida takes the time to readjust them even when he's nearly the end of a climatic battle.
  • Self Stitching: Uryuu does this a lot with his Ransotengai, to extremely impressive effect. Combined with Blut Vene, he is very hard to damage and bleed out.
  • Shoot the Hostage: Gin incinerates entire buildings of bystanders to get to Uryuu.
  • Soul Power: Also a good descriptor of Ishida's power, and a very accurate description of shinigami and hollow power.
  • Specs of Awesome: Uryuu has earned this trope.
  • The Stoic: Ishida and Ryuuken.
    • Not So Stoic: Ishida isn't nearly as stoic as he'd like to believe.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Special mention must be made for Ryuuken and Uryuu, who raise this to an art form.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: Played with. Sometimes this is played straight.
    • And sometimes you're Renji, for whom running his mouth earns him an arrow to the face.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: If you think your unending storm of magic arrows isn't enough, use Blut Arterie.
    • Byakuya's assault on Ishida, before he unlocked Blut Vene, should have been this. Byakuya was extremely surprised when it was not.
    • Ishida fills the sky with so many arrows that they look like stars from the ground. Then he brings them crashing down on his foe. At one point he spends several days amassing firepower, and unleashes it all on Aizen. It actually pushes Aizen to his limits to repel the full force of the attack.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Uryuu's modified version of the Sanrei glove training only works for him because he is the only Quincey who is also a Tailor.
  • Time Dissonance: Seems to apply to most of the long-lived shinigami, but in Uryuu's case he's become so fast that he considers being shot out of a cannon a modest speed.
  • Time to Unlock More True Potential: Was there ever any doubt?
  • Took a Level in Badass: Uryuu took lots and lots. Yoruichi can't believe he actually met his goal of matching and surpassing a Captain in strength.
    • Aizen's mask makes him so powerful his spiritual pressure can no longer be perceived.
  • Training from Hell: Uryuu goes through a truly horrific version of this that can charitably be described as insane and suicidal.
  • Trick Arrow: Uryuu can make his arrows explode, home in on targets, and split into more arrows midflight, among other things.
  • The Unfettered: Aizen.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Uryuu has this relationship with his father, Ryuken.
    • There are shades of this in Ishida's relationship with Aizen.
  • Wham Episode:
    • Aizen is the product of Urahara's first experimentation with Hougyoku and is in fact so intertwined with Hougyoku that it is debatable that they can be considered two separate entities.
    • Ishida defects to Aizen's side.
  • Worthy Opponent: Aizen wants one.

How well does it match the trope?
