With victories over very powerful fighters such as (5th espada) Nnoitra Gilga, (Sternritter V) Gremmy Thoumeaux, Former (Captain and Espada) Tousen, ikkaku, and the very powerful unohana.

He is so powerful millions of hollow die just by being close to him. With victories over former Captains Love and Rose without much trouble he is truly deserving of the number on one.
