im actually tired of ppl sayin that ulq is the strongest espada in his released form when starrk is #1 for a reason...i say starrk would win
both start in their released forms
"yeah starrk would win but i actually think ulquiorra is more powerful in 2nd release. Starrk is really powerful himself, overpowering two vizard captains at once, and has giant attacks, and the greatest speed, but there is one espada who has better destructive feats and that is ulquiorra. Starrk would win though due to not only his own power but his high intelligence, and perceptiveness. So far he has been one of the most strategic characters in the series and is by far the most perceptive of all the espada. I think that is why he is the primera. If it were solely power based i would rank maxed out ulquiorra above him slightly and probably baraggan too but neither, particularly the latter character are very strategic at all. In fact baraggan's serious lack of startegy is the sole reason he lost his battle. He relied only on his super hax powers whereas starrk used not only power but lots of strategy. he lost too but it was because his opponent was simply stronger and way stronger than baraggan's opponent. So in short I think maxed out ulquiorra is slightly more powerful than starrk but would lose in a fight thus is not stronger."
" @FormerCrimsonKing: yes but shunsui wasn't either. he only fought seriously after ukitake was nearly killed. Also his trump card bankai was never even used nor did he use kidou. It's true though his shikai is major hax. I'd say only kyouka suigetsu is more overpowered (and ryuujin jakka but it already was the strongest and is by far one of the oldest). True though Starrk was cheated big time. I do think Shunsui would've won anyway but he might have needed bankai."
" @hitsusatsu11 said:" Ulq. What kinda Primara Espada doesn't even force his opponent into Bankai? "remember he did, but ukitake stopped him, then love and the bird guy came and started gettin beat down by starrk "
actually he said he was going to use it eventually but never went through with it. Ukitake did caution him though implying that it was too dangerous to use around comrades.
" @FormerCrimsonKing: Honestly I'd go with ulquorria he said azein had never seen his sacond relese how could he accuratly rankk him if he'd never seen his true power "that doesnt mean anything, even though aizen didnt kno about, how do you kno where he would rank if he did kno about? nobody knows...but im certain ulq couldnt hang with shunshi, love the bird guy, & ukitake like starrk did
