Kenpachi (剣八, Sword-Eight) is the title that is only given to the strongest Shinigami.[1] It is an ironclad rule that there can be only one Kenpachi per generation, meaning that the predecessor must die for the killer to succeed the title.[2] To inherit this title, the candidate must kill the current Kenpachi in battle.[3]

The title is traditionally held within the 11th Division of the Gotei 13. There have been a total of 11 holders of this title. Claimants include:


  1. Bleach manga; Chapter 520, page 19
  2. Bleach manga; Chapter 526, pages 13-14
  3. Bleach manga; Chapter -108, page 11
