We have all thought about it!
So what do you guys think?


Kinda like this? D:


Or maybe like this? :D


If you're having trouble think of the Bankai's physical size first (like ichigo's? Byakuya's? Old Man Yamamoto's?), or maybe try starting from how he would get it and hypothesis the results from that.

Either way, let's think up something cool. ^_^

I would think it would be a sword that he wouldn't like. that would most likely shoot a projectile or if it was something he like (bankai) a slightly heavier blade that absorbed his spiritual pressure and regenerated his wounds at a extremely higher rate. Thats all i can see kenpachi having honestly. He is perfect kinda like Yujiro Hanma with a sword IMO.

After speculation I came up with a few key points,
I remember someone saying that a soul reaper's Bankai reflects on that soul reaper's personality

I guess I'll make some points for that statement: :P
Kenpachi is pretty wild and aggressive.
He willingly gives opponents advantages to make his opponent seem stronger (bells, eyepatch, one handed fighting) just so he drag out fights and can eventually reach a state of bloodlust
Doesn't finish opponents when it's "no longer fun" but doesn't mind doing it
And has a free spirit nature with a bad (impatient, wild, reckless, cocky) attitude.

These should tell me some things.
And there is no doubt that that sword hates his guts, but yeah.. Pretend he doesn't have such a teamwork issue towards a sword.

EDIT: All of this is a lie, Kenpachi's sword is ALWAYS its' Shikai form

I think you're right Drunga, I can't see him having/ using very many types of powers besides his just muscle-power.
But i thought of a couple of things that might fit


Just for the Shikai, first of all, It has to be sharp at the tip, for piercing things, and it has to be very long, long enough for a wide two-handed grip but not too long as where it can't be somewhat balanced for a one handed grip

1) But, I was thinking that it might end up being circular-saw-like(but not round obviously). So it would have peaks like Renji's Shikai except, instead of the right angles it would have super pointy-sharp double sided peaks pointing back towards Kenpachi, in a tsunami-wave-like-style where everything is smooth except the points, making painful and bloody cuts that would do a good job at injuring but not necessarily being effective at quick kills. This Is a good one IMO because to actually cut with that you would need a lot of strength, even though in Kenpachi's hands it would become the sharpest sword in the universe. But because its such an ineffective design, i think Kenpachi wouldn't be too upset about using it. He swings at enemies like a crazy butcher so this design is suited for swings like that.

The problem here though is if a point gets stuck, I've never seen him stop in the middle of something like he would have to do to pull off the sword, but on the other hand I never have seen something that he hit and wasn't able to slice right through. Besides other swords of course.

2) That or maybe just somewhat saw-like

I'll probably draw you guys the first one I thought of. I labeled them so I can find a picture for you guys.

The Bankai is a bit trickier than the Shikai. But since he likes slicing, maybe one that will eliminated some distance between him and his foes, like a pull, Kenpashi rarely even uses flash steps, so this Bankai would have to be pretty special. It would probably have to spill some of his own blood

I think when he fought Ichigo Tetsuga mentioned that Kempachi's sword was always in Shikai mode even though he didn't know its name. So it looks like it would, but he can't use any power it has. So Shikai would probably look like it does now, except it wouldn't be all knicked up. Has for his bankai I would guess it would be a big two handed sword, a physical type like Ikkaku's.

Kenpachi Shikai = eyepatch removal
Bankai = Kendo

Enough said

Ah, you're right! Then i am going to edit the OP -_-
His blade is all crapped up, lol. I remember that now.
But I didn't think about it, I thought shikais and thought about how everyone else has a sharp one.
Its almost like his eyepatch and his bells, he's got a dull sword too. :|
If he activated Shikai without knowing his swords name then that's the only way he would achieve Bankai, I suppose.

It would probably be a wood sword so he can drag out his fights longer and the only way he can
win is if he cracks their skull too many times lol or just breaks their bones

I think that he's not going to ever realize his shikai or bankai until he realizes that Yachiru is his zanpakuto. That or his zanpakuto is offended that he gave her it's name and won't come out because of that.
He's one of those stupid-powerful shinigami like Ichigo but doesn't know or really care to communicate with it. Chances are his current zanpakuto form is it's shikai form like Ichigo. After all, who wants to have a blade fixed to look as ratty as his does? My guess as to a bankai though... Let's go with an adult form Yachiru, battle ready to kick some ass with 'ol Ken-chan!

every one has a bankai that simpilar to their shikai or something that relates to them in general.
even the black op girl, although her shikai is small and poisonous it its sleek for a ninja but her bankai is huge and amazingly strong which is the idea of a once shot kill that ninjas need.

so im saying due to kenpaichi strength and all. his bankai is the same as his shikai but the blade is probably longer or its blade is sharpened instead of wear down as it is now.
but his zampakuto has no name, so in order to get this i say he need to name it kinda like how his lieutenant names everyone. maybe she nearly dies and names his sword giving him a bankai. i feel like it could be a arm cannon or something like that though.

I don't think he has a bankai, you get your bankai once you and your swords "souls" or what not connect and speak to each other. If you remember Kenpaichi has never spoke or tried to sense his swords soul. He is that strong from his will power and spiritual pressure and cause of the eye patch saving it up. Now if he ever would try to get to know his sword and had a bankai he would be the strongest soul reaper there ever was.

nah nah in reality Yachiru(the little girl with pink hair who rides on his back) is his real bankai!!! Just kidding, but I thought on one episode they were going to show him use shikai or bankai, though I don't remember which (didn't happen though just seemed like a good spot for it to happen)

Yachiru is his zanpakuto's spirit, like old man zangetsu is Ichigo's.

He'll finally say something (probably by mistake) like "fight with me Yachiru" against some weirdo opponent.

His bankai will be some nasty overpowered kidou power, he'll annihilate his opponent, say "this is boring" and never use it again.

lmao @ the "two hands" bankai.
i think the Yachiru idea is pretty good. she's a mystery herself, since her shikai and bankai haven't been revealed.
