  • It wasn't shown or mentioned at all. Suddenly she just has it. She doesn't even need to train, it's just "Oh, let's give the main heroine more powers."

    Has she always had it or is it just nonsense?

    • maybe she learned it while training in Ichibē Hyōsube's palace

    • My friend where have you been all this time! You seem to be forgetting that Rukia also went to the Soul Palace. And like Kirio Hikifune said. In the zero division things are taken to a whole new level. Way beyond that of anything available to the Gotei 13.

      So it's quite natural that once she was able to at least move in Ichibei high density reishi atmosphere, that covered his palace, that that gave her a jump start to her powers development. Including of course the use of bankai.

      And also don't forget that not only her control over her bankai was still weak and lacking. But her bankai is a double edge sword. It's is formidable in its destructive power, but it leaves her completely open to a counter attack, if it fails to kill her opponent. In fact all her opponent would have to do would be to shatter her into pieces. Seeing her entire body turns to ice.

    • Actually It Doesn't Say It Turns Her To Ice, It Says It Reduces Her Body Temperature To Sub-Zero Temperatures. Which Actually Just Means She's Colder Than A Dead Person, Or Colder Than Ice.

    • Still, that should not be possible for her opponent. Molecular motion is nil or nigh nil. It would have to be until after Hakka No Togame's influence dissipates.

    • any shinigami who has reach the requirement of reitsu can use bankai of course in renji case he forced it and thus receive half a bankai with Vice captain Reitsu. thus a True Bankai is awakened after a shinigami reaches Captain Level Reitsu.

      rukia gained her bankai after reaching captain level Reitsu by eating Zero squad Food and training there, getting a bankai is easy since Ichibei can just tell rukia or renji its Name, and or use the same method urahara did which is prett much in hours

    • I wouldn't look at it as a new ability or new power, but just new information that elaborates on the mechanics of Sode no Shirayuki. Her ability to lower her body temperature and having the sword extend it to her attacks is a pragmatic way of explain how does she create ice to begin with. Similar to Toshiro's Tenso Jurin is an elaboration on how he creates ice.

    • A shinigami has to train for ten years after achieving bankai to master it, before being able to effectively use it in combat. She most likely attained it before or during the series and mastered it while with the Royal Guard. Highly unlikely she just got it as a result of training with them. If so, every other lieutenant might as well have gone to the palace too for a free bankai.

      No, I highly doubt Rukia had achieved Bankai before. Even if she hadn't mastered it, just attaining it is enough to boost her power immensely. I go with the idea that Ichibe outright told her what her Bankai is, allowing her to instantly achieve it.

      As for why not all Shinigami get that? Simple, it's not Ichibe's job to give everyone a free Bankai. Normally Shinigami do have to work for it. Rukia and Renji were just exceptions because of the dire situation. That and they were friends of Ichigo and Ichibe probably knew that they could be trusted with the power, as opposed to some other Shinigami.

    • Yeah, I mean, maybe she had an idea of her bankai from her zanpkuto spirit, and ichibei just pushed the whole deal, a step up? We did have lieutenants who got bankais in like almost no time, with no cheat codes at all. They were just good. Renji, shuhei, ikakku, and prolly others who are now captains

    • No Tbh I Think She Just Happened To Learn It While Training Up There, Because We Never Saw Rukia Talking To Ichibei.
