    Default Style Matters

    I've only been reading the forums since this morning, but their's something I've noticed with people comparing character's strength. Often, when two characters are compared, they assume that the only think that matters are speed and strength. But I've been reading/watching Bleach for a while, and I've come to the conclusion that in battles, style matters.

    For example, some people assume that Rukia only wins battles because of plot devices. I believe this is wrong. In the Arrancar and Hueco Mundo arcs especially, she wins quite a bit. I think this isn't because of her physical strength, or speed, but her abilities. Rukia's fighting style is mostly centered around using Kidou spells and her zanpakutou's abilities, so she wouldn't do very well in a head-to-head fight. That's why in most of her battles, she utilizes her abilities to their best effects.

    That above paragraph may have made no sense, but my point stands clear- Style Matters.

    You can use this thread to discuss the fighting style's of various characters. Also, be aware that this is my first post, so tell me if I'm doing anything wrong.

    Default Show me ya moves.

    Well you are right style does matter but in bleach you have to understand style can only go so far. Renji and Ishida had tons of style in their current fight but style against a overwhelming odd is nothing more then a cheap trick, but thats because their opponents style is to completely gimp his opponent. Now Rukia when she arrived at Ichigo's house still had the power damper effect because of the object i forget the name which overall gimps all her abilities. But she has power that is completely underestimated but it isn't weak, but when a person is so powerful the take your attack dead to the face and laugh at you. Like when rukia froze grimmjow and he broke out like it was nothing. Style does go a long way but style is just another strength that adds into a persons total power. But its not like every one can be OVER 9000!! Some people have to be weaker to show how strong someone else is.

    Damn i thought this was gonna be a thread about how being stylish in fights matters, to me this sounds kinda more like the tactics that a person employs in battle. But seriously i think that any fight with crazily stylish characters in just looks better. Maybe a Yumichika vs capt Kyouraku with Nano chan throwing petals, it probably wouldn't last long or have crazy shows of strength but it would sure be stylish!

    I'm not sure style matters that much. Style only mattered in 2 fights we saw: Rukia vs Arrancar she killed (forgot name) and round 2 Hitsugaya vs Luppi (is this the right name?).

    Ichigo managed to equate Byakuya in their fight despite having considerably weaker style than Byakuya. Kempachi, a person with no style, managed to beat Tousen and Komamura.

    in bleach fights the winners are either
    1)determined by plot devices
    2)determined by spiritual power
    3)espada.

    Tousen he did won but Kenpachi never finished his fight with Komamura.

    >.<

    Kenpachi should have never been able to defeat Tousen.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    NAh i think when Tousen went to HM with Gin and Aizen he got some kind of power up, because other wise he would be totally useless.
