    If she had a zanpakutou she would've used it in the fight against soi fong since she wasn't being outclassed. However if she has one it doesn't have to be the stereotypcial sword type zanpakutou and have just a weapon similar to soi fongs knife attachment onto her arms.

    While spirits can't be hurt with normal weapons, i'd hardly classify yoruichi's hand combat skills and body as normal. Yoruichi's special ability - shunkou - would also probably be the equivalent of a bankai. As a member of the special forces she wouldn't have been limited to swords and chose to ignore the zanjutsu skills for mastery in hakuda, kidou and hohou.

    Cool

    i agree that she might have hidden it since she couldn't have carried it as a cat.but this thread is about what it might be.

    She most likely doesn't have one
    1) she would be too strong
    2) is this special groups members even called shinigami ?? Because i think they are diffrent and they don't have a zanpaktou. Soi Fong has one because after Yoruichi's betrayal she became a member of gotei 13
    3) it's not her style to use sword-like weapons hidden knives and close combat, that's what she really uses
    4) No one ever said she has one... but that one is a stupid argument

    Im pretty sure that Yoruichi, while being a shinigami, doesn't have a zanpakutou. She's a shinigami, yes, but she isn't a member of the Gotei 13. Only those people get zanpakutou... and vizards... and arankal... ya. Anyway, she wouldn't really need one anyway. She was leader of the Keigun Brigade and all that stuff, and has all her hohou and fist-fight skills.
    on that, you dont have to be a member of gotei 13 to have a zanpaktuou, remember that ichigo became a shinigami by finding the latent power within himself and he obviously has one. Vizards were shinigamis, thus they have and Arankars become shingamis and get one... adding to that, every single shinigami has a zanpaktou, it when they get it they become shinigamis. Every single shinigami we have seen has had a zanpaktou except for the gate guardian and Yoruchi (i belive?), i think they have theirs, just that they prefer other weaponry.

    Jidanbou has a Zanpakuto. It's those axes. What if Youruichi's Zanpakuto is something that allows her to amplify her abilities, like the ability to turn into a cat.

    that would just be a dumb way for them to inroduce her zanpakuto if she does have one. OR it can be a really cool way if it turns out that the cat that she turns into is her zanpakuto like how renji have that monkey thingie. But im thinking that it might have some really big thing thats calls for her to use all her power and then we might get a kinda cool moment. yourichi:"hmm i thought i could live without ever releasing this weapon again but it seems i have no choice" and then we see a shadow looming behind her in the shape of a demonic looking cat and then END OF CHAPTER and then the mangaka never makes another chapter ROFLMAO j/k.

    p.s. i was also wondering about Jidanbou's zanpakuto it is two axes right? so y did the captain of the 1st divisio say that those other 2 captains(cant remember names atm" have the only twin zanpakutos in history

    I think he was talking about swords only.

    Yoruichi has a sword... somewhere... Its unclear if she still has it, or has lost it somewhere along the way, or is just hiding it. I'm sure it's hidden somewhere and she just hasn't had the need to use it. She's pretty pro, after all....

    While there are many interesting ideas, it all comes down to speculation.
    If you go back to the basics, what is a Zanpakutou for?
    It is used by Shinigami for two things, to purify souls and send them to soul-society, and to cleanse Hollows and send them to soul-society as well.
    Seeing as how Yoruichi was head of the Secret Mobile Corps, Mobile Intelligence Corps, or whatever you feel like calling them, who wouldn't have been responsible for regulating the balance of souls between the two worlds, there isn't really a reason for her to have carried a Zanpakutou.
    Conversely, other Shinigami have been seen to wield Zanpakutou's as well. Although Ichigo (being the main example, and only one that I can think of) originally got his powers from Rukia, which would explain the need for a ZP
    Then he awakened his own Shinigami abilities which he obviously
    *spoiler*
    inherited from his father, Isshin, who's links with Soul Society haven't been revealed as of yet
    */spoiler*
    So we still see no evidence why a member of the Intelligence division would need one. While Soi Fong is now holding Yoruichi's former position, she is also Captain of 2nd Division of the Gotei 13, so her having a ZP is expected.
    I too have heard that Suzumebachi (Soi Fong's ZP) was formerly Yoruichi's, but I don't think there is any serious weight to this argument. Otherwise during the fight between the two, why would Yoruichi be so shocked, and caught completely off-guard by the abilities of her own Zanpakutou, it just seems silly.
    From what evidence we've seen so far, I don't think Yoruichi has a Zanpakutou of her own, although we may or may not find out about it later on, that is after all, a perfectly reasonable assumption.

    Well, for my first ever post I think I'm off to a good start

    Well i still go by the belief that a zanpakutou doesn't always have to be a sword and can be a knife attachment to the wrist.
