I agree. I think he'll eventually learn it but I don't think it'll be anytime soon. Probably real late in the series. As powerful as he is now without knowing it's name, he's still not strong enough to take on some of the people left to come.

Side note, this was a theory of mine from another thread:

Alright, random theory.

Kenpachi has a shikai sword. The only way to obtain a shikai sword is by gaining knowledge of your zanpakuto's name. There's no other way around it.


The Shikai (始解, Initial Release) is the second form (or first "upgraded" form) available to a Zanpakutō. To activate it, the Shinigami needs to learn the name of their Zanpakutō. This is not as easy as simply picking a name, as the living spirit of the Zanpakutō already has its own name. Therefore, the Shinigami must be able to communicate and harmonize with their Zanpakuto


He has a zanpakuto in shikai form meaning that at one point and time he in fact did know his zanpakuto's name. Right now, he has no knowledge of his swords name. One thing that could explain this is what's called Post-traumatic amesia particularly anterograde amnesia variation. Post-traumatic amnesia is usually caused by a head injury. If you looked at Kenpachi, there's a huge scar running down the left side of his face. It's never explained where the scar is from. He even had the scar before he fought Ikkaku. That's how long he's had that scar. With the anterograde variation it's basically the inability to remember something from your past. Kinda like repressed memories but slightly different.

So possibly, way back in Zaraki's past, he was struck with a huge blow that caused him to have a form of amnesia leaving him unable to remember what his zanpakuto's name is.



That combined with his belief in his own massive power is a possible reason why he doesn't know his swords name but meh, just a random theory.

He probably will, but in the end of the series.
This is probably because he would be the strongest and ichigo wouldn't be interesting anymore.

I think you're right about zarak, memphis. Best theory I've heard about him so far!

If he learned his Zanpaktu's name, I'm pretty sure the world would automatically be reduced to ash. Lol, or at least that's what it seems. I'm sure he WILL learn its name. It'll definitely make good television.

Actually, there has been rumors for years that his vice-captain is actually part of Zaraki's Zanpaktu. Mostly, because of the flash back on how they met and him naming her.

Possible, but unlikely - remember that Yachiru HAS her own sword.

Yes, one that has never been used.

Maybe... Well, I think it's quite probable that Yachiru is a SEAL, one that keeps Zaraki's powers under lock and key (so to say- English's not my mother tongue... ). If so, the sword she's carrying belongs to... Kenpachi, and she's literally UNABLE to draw it.

Remember the arrancar whose only ability was to

I'm not so sure about that... Isn't Ichigo another example? If I recall, his zanpakutou is also in shikai (first-release) form. And while his first zanpakutou may not have been Zangetsu, its size still suggests that it too was the Shikai form even though Ichigo did not know its name (or even that it had a name).

It wasn't a shikai ... Yes, I am sure.
