Bleach: Top 11 Strongest Hollows

Bleach: Top 11 Strongest Hollows

The Strongest Hollows in Bleach: A Humorous Ranking

Updated on July 22, 2023 by Ritwik Mitra: Bleach is a series that divides many fans right down the middle – I mean, come on, it’s like trying to organize a Karaoke night with your friends and everyone arguing over who should sing the first song. Some people think Bleach is the bee’s knees, while others think it’s more like a B-list movie. But hey, we’re here to talk about Hollows and the top dogs that make the afterlife of Bleach interesting. So let’s dive right in!

14. Yammy Llargo

Behold, the mighty Yammy Llargo, the walking skyscraper of Hollows. This guy is so big, he’s like a Godzilla wannabe on steroids. But here’s the thing, despite his gargantuan size, he’s not as tough as he thinks he is. Byakuya and Kenpachi made quick work of him, and instead of showing him some respect, they argued over who gets to take the credit. Talk about sibling rivalry. Sorry, Yammy, you were just a snack for these two.

13. Aaroniero Arruruerie

Remember that saying, “You are what you eat”? Well, Aaroniero Arruruerie took it way too seriously. This slimy fellow had the power to absorb other powerful Hollows and become stronger himself. It’s like going to an all-you-can-eat buffet and using the food to level up. But good ol’ Rukia didn’t let him have all the fun. She showed this wannabe chef who’s the real boss with her suite of powers. Bon appétit, Aaroniero!

12. Szayelaporro Granz

Now, here’s an Arrancar that could give the Joker a run for his money in the unhinged department. Szayelaporro Granz, the mad scientist of the Espada, is a real piece of work. He’s irritating, weird, and has that iconic creepy smile. But he messed with the wrong scientist when he tangled with Mayuri. Let’s just say Mayuri had a little surprise for him, and it involved Nemu’s body and a very slow and painful demise. Lesson learned, don’t mess with the crazy scientist.

11. The Tres Bestias (And Ayon)

You know what they say, “Power comes in groups.” Lady Halibel’s loyal subordinates, Emilou Apacci, Franceska Mila Rose, and Cyan Sung-Sun, individually might not be the strongest Hollows, but when they team up, they can cause chaos like a rock band at a hotel party. And as a last resort, they can even dismember themselves (just a little bit) to summon Ayon, the gargantuan beast who’s not afraid to break a few necks. Watch out, because these ladies mean business.

10. Nnoitra Gilga

Meet Nnoitra Gilga, the Espada with a smile that could give you nightmares. This guy is ruthless, heartless, and has the skin of a supermodel. His Zanpakuto, Santa Teresa, gives him the ability to heal and sprout extra arms, turning him into a living nightmare. But even the toughest skin has its kryptonite. Kenpachi showed Nnoitra that he’s not the big boss he thinks he is, and that smile was wiped right off his face. Good riddance!

9. Tier Harribel

Tier Harribel, the Queen of Hueco Mundo, went from aimlessly roaming the desert to becoming not only a powerful Espada but also a fierce leader. Unfortunately, her reign was short-lived when the Quincy forces captured her. Hey, at least she got a taste of what it’s like to be at the top. And don’t worry, Tier, we haven’t forgotten about you. We’re here rooting for your escape and return to the throne. You go, girl!

8. Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez

Ah, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, the bad boy of the Espada. Unlike his comrades, Grimmjow doesn’t blindly follow Aizen’s lead. He’s selective when it comes to battles and believes in fair fights. And guess what? He’s the only Arrancar who escaped Aizen’s clutches. Talk about making a grand exit. But the best part is when he pops up in Urahara’s video call with Ichigo, ready to kick some Quincy butt. It’s like the good boy gone bad, and we love it!

7. Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck

Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, the defender of the weak and fan-favorite Arrancar. This sweet and powerful lady may look like a lost toddler at first, but don’t be fooled. When she turns into her fully-grown body, she means business. Nel only fights when she has to and holds no joy in bloodshed. She’s like the big sister you always wished for. And with her unique ability to consume cero blasts, she’s a force to be reckoned with. Stay awesome, Nel!

6. Baraggan Louisenbairn

Baraggan Louisenbairn, the accidental accomplice of Aizen. This guy can age things faster than a TikTok trend dies out. But his own power turned against him when Hachigen messed with his attacks, leading to his own demise. It’s like karma came back to bite him in the wrinkly behind. At least he went out with style, sporting a Grim Reaper-like appearance and wielding the formidable Gran Caída. Rest in peace, Baraggan, or shall we say, rest in decay?

5. Ulquiorra Cifer

Ah, the emo Espada, Ulquiorra Cifer. This guy could give the Flash a run for his money with his speed. His advanced healing abilities make Wolverine jealous, and let’s not forget his Double Resurrección. Yep, two for the price of one. But Ichigo wasn’t one to be outdone. With his Hollow transformation, he showed Ulquiorra who’s the boss and sent him packing. Thanks for the entertainment, Ulquiorra. We hope you’re rocking that emo look wherever you are now.

4. Coyote Starrk

Coyote Starrk, the top dog of the Espada. This guy is so powerful, his presence alone spreads death to everyone around him. Talk about being the life of the party. But even with his incredible strength, he’s a lonely guy. Luckily, he has his soul sister, Lilynette, to keep him company. When they merge back into a single entity, things get real. Dual-wielding pistols, reiatsu swords, and reiatsu-powered wolves? This Espada is a real party animal.

3. White: The Black Hollow

Now things are getting interesting. White, the father of Ichigo’s Hollow lineage. This unique subspecies of Hollow is like the Frankenstein’s Monster of the afterlife. Created with powerful Shinigami souls, this guy packs a punch. Stronger than your average Hollow, he’s the real deal. And to think Aizen created this monstrosity to take down the Gotei 13. But a Quincy’s well-aimed arrow put an end to White’s reign, or did it? Ichigo might have a thing or two to say about that.

2. Vasto Lorde Ichigo

Here comes the main event: Vasto Lorde Ichigo, the ultimate form of our favorite Strawberry Shinigami. When Zangetsu and White get together, things get crazy. With advanced speed, regeneration, and the ability to summon appendages and Ceros, Ichigo is a force to be reckoned with. And his battle against Ulquiorra was a sight to behold. He went all out and showed his true power. Nobody messes with Ichigo and gets away with it.

1. Merged Hollow Ichigo

Drum roll, please! The top spot goes to none other than Merged Hollow Ichigo. We haven’t seen this form in the Thousand Year Blood War anime yet, but trust us, it’s worth the wait. When Ichigo fully embraces his Quincy and Hollow roots, he becomes an unstoppable force. His Gran Rey Cero can shock even the “omniscient” Yhwach, and his Getsuga Tenshō reaches a whole new level. Add in some bonus Bankai transformations, and you’ve got a recipe for pure awesomeness. We can’t wait to see this in action!

So there you have it, the laughter, the tears, and the epic battles of the Hollows in Bleach. These bad boys (and girls) may be on the wrong side of the afterlife, but they sure know how to make things interesting. Until next time, keep gaming and may the Hollows be forever in your favor!
