We are back with another exciting article on Bleach. The anime started way back in 2004, and it was a breakout hit among the audience as it became an alternative to Naruto. The fans hugely enjoyed the soul society arc at that time. Today in this article, we are going to discuss “Who is the main villain in Bleach?”
The proper answer to the question is “The main villain in the Bleach series is Yhwach, as he is the only one with far more ambitions than the other bleach villains, Sosuke Aizen and Kugo Ginjo. He is far eviler than both of them as he never hesitates to destroy his enemies and allies. In Bleach’s world, every villain has a perfect goal they want to reach with purely evil intentions.
Later in the post, we discussed Yhwach and why he is the main villain of the series, along with other villains as well. So, let’s discuss.
Main Villain in Bleach
Yhwach is the main villain in Bleach. He is the leader of the Wanderich army, who served as the main antagonist of the Thousand Year Blood war arc.
He is ruthless, cold-blooded, and a guy full of patience. One thousand years ago, before the start of the manga, he fought against Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto and witnessed his powerful Bankai.
Both of them failed to kill each other, which further led to losing his power. He was described as The Sealed King as it took him 900 years to regain his pulse, 90 years to regain his intellect, and 9 years to absorb the power of half-Quincy.
He launched an assault on Soul Society where he not only managed to Kill Captain-Commander of Gotei 13 but also stole his Bankai as well. Yhwach has far more evilier goal than Aizen and Ginjo.
He had the conviction to carry on till the end, but he failed as he was defeated by the collective efforts of Ichigo, Aizen, Uryu, and Renji.
Other Villains in Bleach
We have seen four significant arcs; the first arc, The Soul Society arc, was based on the rescue of Rukia from impending execution. Ichigo and his friends faced Gotei 13 and saved her, but in the end, it was revealed that Aizen was the mastermind of this execution.
Later on, in the Arrancar arc where Ichigo & co have to deal with Aizen and stop him in his goal of killing the soul king. Later in the thousand-year blood war arc, he redeemed himself and assisted Ichigo in defeating Ywhach.
In the Fullbringer arc, Kugo Ginjo was the first substitute soul reaper of soul society. After finding out that the badge given to him was to monitor, it broke him and made him go rogue and go on to kill soul reapers to gain more power.
He later stoles Ichigo’s fullbring powers to make himself even stronger but is subsequently defeated after Ichigo gets his soul reapers powers back. In the thousand-blood war arc, he played a crucial role in restoring Zangetsu after Ichigo’s defeat at the hands of Yhwach.
That’s all for today’s post on “Who is the main villain in bleach?” We will soon be back with another article on Bleach. Till then, stay tuned and stay updated. See you again.
