Many of the best Byakuya Kuchiki​ quotes also come when he has the upper hand in a battle, as he likes to make it sting for his opponent by insulting them: "The arrogant one is you, Espada. But rest at ease. The reason for your loss is not due to that arrogance. It is simply due to a difference in power."
