Default Why are Tessai and Hachigen so freaking large?

Whoo first thread I've started.

Yeah, I've never really thought much about the general size of Tessai or Hachigen until I found out about their former statuses... which brings up the question:

What makes them so incredibly large? This may seem silly, but I would wonder why they are noticeably bigger than any normal human form (Heck I bet they can see eye-to-eye with Komamura and Kenpachi).

So, opinions: Is it the fact that they are naturally large that opens up their potential to be so adept and skilled at Kido... OR... is it the result of the hard work to master and hone the skills that caused their soul's physical stature to increase to compensate for Kido's demand in power and control.

I seriously doubt size has anything to do with kidou. Look at Aizen.

Hell, look at Hinamori.

I think it's just how KT wanted to draw them. It probably has nothing to do with them being skilled at kido.

Exactly. If Tessai and Hachi are abnormally large because of high level of kido then Rukia, Hitsugaya and the likes are low level kido. But Hitsugaya is a captain so his kido level is high. So kido levels dosnt increase or decrease height.

Being a captain does not mean your kidou levels are high at all.

Look at Kenpachi, or hell, even the SOULs data sheets. A good portion of the captains are not all that skilled with kidou.

Ehhh I had a reason for why they are big but it's very hard to word out.
Something to do with their power level and status.
Bleh, I think they're just big because KT made them like that.

I forget who Tessai is...I can't place the name with the face. :P

I do however know how Hachi is (big RoUnD dude with an awesome skull&cross bones on his head) I WANNA SEE HACHI FIGHT! He is probably seconed weakest, BUT STILL!

Komamura towers over almost everyone, so I doubt even the tall&squishy Hachi could see eye to eye with 'em.

I also disagree on tallness making you good at Kido, it would make more sinse if it was phyiscial strength that was larger with tallness though...Again, if that was true Komamura would rock Aizen's world.

Hachi's pretty much a more mature Orihime, in terms of abilities. I really doubt he's anything but a badass in a serious fight.

Ya never know, he could be pretty strong...Plus, it's often that characters that never fight that turn out to be border line super sayian. :O

Hachi's not a more mature Orihime. While it's true that the skill he has over what he does far exceeds Orihime's, I think Orihime's got a lot more potential than Hachi ever did.

Hachi can erect super powerful barriers and perform high level kido. Orihime can reject the laws of nature, including the existince of just about everything. I think the only similarities in their abilities are their vizard-like reiatsu (orihime and chad getting their power from contact with ichigo) and their barrier forming abilities.

To get back on topic, I think Tessai and Hachi are so large so that they stand out from other characters. They were both originally given minor rolls, Tessai being assistant shop keeper and Hachi being the gentlest of the vizards, but their inhumanly giant appearances were noticeable enough that you'd later recognize them when the surprise of their larger roles were revealed.
