Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto, one of the strongest Soul Reaper and the Captain-Commander of the Gotei 13 can be considered as one of the most unbeatable and powerful characters in the show. But it all came to an end after his fight with Yhwach.

Yhwach had defeated Yamamoto as he stole his Bankai with his medallion, then used his sword to finish off his longtime nemesis. The passing of Yamamoto had a profound and far-reaching impact on the Soul Society and the Gotei 13, as he stood as one of the most revered and formidable figures within the Bleach universe.

Captain Shunsui Kyoraku took the role of Captain-Commander, a serious chance for him to show he could be the top Soul Reaper. This also meant he needed to find someone else to be the Captain of Squad 8.

4. Jugram Hashwalth

In our list of Top 5 Characters who will die in Bleach, at no. 4 we have the holy and angelic Quincy – Jugram Hashwalth. Whenever Yhwach slept, Jugram temporarily assumed his responsibilities and became Sternritter A, known as “The Almighty.”

He was extremely loyal to Yhwach, and even when Yhwach absorbed all the power from the less deserving Quincy for his own gain. During Jugram’s battle with Uryu Ishida, Yhwach killed Jugram by triggering Auswählen. It was a tragic end for someone who had shown such devotion to his master.

Even as he was dying, Jugram didn’t harbor any feelings of betrayal from Yhwach. He saw himself as a valuable tool to him and didn’t hesitate to sacrifice his life for him.

3. Bambietta Basterbine

Bambietta Basterbine belonged to the Sternritter, a formidable faction of Quincy warriors. She had the unique ability known as “The Explode,” which enabled her to transform anything she touched into an explosive, granting her formidable destructive powers.

Bambietta had a fight with Sajin Komamura, taking his Zanpakuto during their initial encounter. Later in the war, they had a rematch. Bambietta was defeated by Sajin’s formidable human form, allowing Sajin to seek revenge for his lost Bankai.

Bambietta was among the first Sternritter deaths in the Thousand-Year Blood War. Her demise hinted at the gruesome powers and cruelty of Giselle, who turned her into a zombie.

2. Captain Jushiro Ukitake

  • Captain Jushiro Ukitake led the 13th Division within the Gotei 13 and was renowned for his wisdom and compassionate character. His strength was so remarkable that some believed he was destined to succeed the Soul King.
  • Ukitake didn’t do much during the Soul Society Arc or in the Arrancar Arc, but he had one last plan during the Thousand-Year Blood War. His life was saved by a deity and the Soul King’s right hand named Mimihagi, from his long-term illness.

But in the end, when Yhwach posed a threat to the Soul King, Ukitake willingly surrendered the life he had been granted. His death held such significance in the manga’s storyline and added to the overall tension that will surely be shown in the anime.

1. Yhwach

In our list of Top 5 Characters who will Die in Bleach, at no. 1 we have Yhwach – the Quincy Emperor, and the central antagonist who had the power known as “The Almighty,” enabling him to peer into the future and manipulate destiny.

Yhwach was just one step away from creating his deathless world (and you are just a few steps away from having the best Anime Newsletter delivered to you every Monday), but Ichigo didn’t let it happen. In the end, Ichigo and his comrades, including Uryu Ishida, executed a synchronized attack on Yhwach, which counteracted his powers and abilities.

Ichigo made his final blow, securing his victory against the King of Quincy, which concluded the Thousand-Year Blood War.
