Star Wars/Bleach Crossover - Arrancar Revan by Jarein Star Wars/Bleach Crossover - Arrancar Revan by Jarein
This hit me like a lightning bolt this morning while I was on the pot reading an old issue of PCGamer with Wotlk concept art. Link Below

Female Death Knight

I kept comparing Jedi with Bleach characters; associating the Force with reiatsu, lightsabers with zanpakuto, and shinigami/hollows with the Jedi Order and Sith.

Now my favorite Star Wars character of ALL time is Revan. Not my favorite Expanded Universe character, not my favorite video character, but my favorite SW character PERIOD. If you dont know the man's backstory, shame on you, because it is the most epic story of sacrifice and service you will ever read. The man is the embodiment of awesome. And he wears the coolest mask to boot; a very easy bridge to gap between Bleach and Star Wars mythos.

Now for the design. I tried hard to come up with a good middle-ground between Arrancar clothing and his canonical sith/jedi robes. His mask remains largely unchanged, aside from careful removal of technical details to make it look less like a device, and more like a hollow mask. I also took more time to develop a very cool, dynamic jedi-like pose. I mean, if I'm going to do another SW-themed crossover, theres alot of pressure to do my very best :D

His zanpakuto was a tough call. I couldnt settle on a cool metalic blade design that made sense, and Bleach has been ripping off lightsabers for years now anyway, so I figured why not? It makes sense, and we can just say its a blade of solid reiatsu just to put the flames to rest :D

So, love it or hate it?

Additional Information:

Zanpakuto

Caído (Fallen Angel)
Release Command: Redeem


The sword in its sealed state takes on the form of the weapon used by Revan in his former life: the prized weapon of all Jedi, the lightsaber. Unlike the superheated plasma blade generated through the technology in a lightsaber’s hilt, Caído generates a blade of concentrated reiatsu from its hilt instead.

Upon release Revan assumes his most terrifying form; his true form. His robes turn black and shred and tear into raggity edges. His armor hisses and oxidizes into a burnished brass and his mask shatters and reforms into an additional, crimson blade; giving him the pair of blades he wielded during his reign as a redeemed Jedi/Sith Lord. His speed, strength and fighting power increases to its pinnacle and his swordsmanship goes from incredible to nigh unbeatable.

I shudder to think what Revan of all people would be able to do with reiatsu of all things. Excellent concept!

Damn, this is awesome.  I feel tempted to write a story behind his hollow-fication...better catch up on more of Revan's lore.

Just a quick question: if he were among the Espada, what number do you think he would be?

Hey, thanks a lot for the positive feedback on this! If you decide to write a fiction based on this, let me know. I'd like to read your interpretation.

If you wanted my thoughts on his origin, I always envisioned he was a naturally occurring arrancar; one not created by Aizen. Something more ancient and primordial, not affiliated with Aizen's cause.

Again, thanks for the kind feedback. Good luck!

Love the concept but frankly i can't see a difference between this and "Revan in white". Might be of course but i see nothing that really says "Arrancar" or even "Bleach".

Mind if i ask for art tips?

This looks amazing! From time to time I think about how other hollow masks could look and never thought of this. As I hold Revan as my favourite Star Wars character aswell, I enjoy this idea even more!
Trying to imagine now how it would look like with a katana instead of a lightsaber :D

It was a great idea until you said "Bleach has been ripping off lightsabers for years now"

Good job still, though.

Aizen would have been killed in the first season, Revan would have found and explained all the plot holes of the series. Then conquered everything!

awsome drawing man and lol i had to laugh cause ur the second person i notice that basically shared my view that bleach seems very similar to star wars with the whole swords/lighsaber vibe and the battles between the soul reaper/jedi and the hollows/sith hell if azien took a page frum skywalker in a sense with him turning his back on the soul reapers and ally himself with the hollows lol

Awesome choice for SW character to put in a crossover with Bleach. He looks completely bad ass. Though I was wondering if you are going to draw Revan in his release state?

Revan truly is the effin man. It just saddens me that he was never apart of the more modern SW continuity. Who better to bring balance to the force than a guy who has bitch slapped both alignments into submission and made them his bitch. Thanks again for your support and positive comments man. Always appreciated!

The Assassin's Creed robes fit pretty well with Revan.

Thanks bud! I thought so too when I designed this, but I've beaten Assassins Creed/SW crossovers to death so I wanted to try something I know nobody has done before. So far, i think im the only one, but I might be wrong.

I wonder what else you have in mind. Say something along the lines of this.

And the white makes Revan look more like a bad ass ghost lol.
