In the world of Bleach, a Soul Reaper is nothing without their bladed partner, the Zanpakutō. In addition to being a Soul Reaper's main weapon for combat, these Japanese-style swords also contain hidden powers called Bankai, that give their wielder extraordinary advantages in combat. One Zanpakutō can summon a skeleton snake demon, whereas another calls forth an indestructible samurai giant. 

There is an amazing number of incredibly powerful Bankai wielded by heroes and Bleach villains alike, but which ones are truly supreme?
