So, if Arrancars have Shinigami powers...

    ...Does that mean they are also capable of Shinigami duties? What I mean is if Shinigamis can send souls to Soul Society, does that mean Arrancars can send souls to Hueco Mundo the same way?

    If true, Aizen really upset the balance of power here. He single-handedly changed the way things work in the afterlife by making Hallows as important as Shinigamis. I wonder if that's what Iceringer meant when he said Aizen was their salvation.

    Also, now that arrancars exist, what happens to them when they get killed by a shinigami? They're no longer creatures of instinct so I don't think they would be welcome in Soul Society.

    well, couldnt normal hollows bring pluses into HM. so i dunno if they could perform aoul burials on souls but they can bring them to HM and we dont know what would happen to them when they are killed, some were killed already and they arent wrecking up SS so i guess they just revert to their human soul form

    umm...i highly doubt Arrancar would perform a soul burial on a soul

    for one, they'd probably eat the soul
    and two, their zanpakutou's dont "cleanse" the way Shinigami's do, since it's only their true self sealed up, not a seperate form of their soul.

    No. Arrancar are Hollows with their masks broken/removed but they're still Hollows at heart (or not if they have a hole there) so they have to eat something to survive like anything else I guess.
    I think it's more that those who don't pass on to Soul Society are afraid of death and by extension the Arrancar too are afraid of death. Aizen isn't afraid of that so because he's not the Arrancar flock to him.

    Same as any normal Hollow. When Grand Fisher was gutted by Isshin he disappeared like normal...but he was an incomplete Arrancar. Those who came with Grimmjaw didn't fade:

    Nakim was sliced up.
    Shawlong was frozen and smashed.
    Edorad was blasted by Ikkaku.
    Il Fort was blown apart by Renji.
    D-Roy was frozen solid by Rukia.

    And as for the others...well Iceringer was shot up but not killed and then crushed by boulders and Demoura was bitch slapped and crushed too so we haven't seen a completed Arrancar fade that way but it's fairly safe to assume they do until we see otherwise.

    Very true but we didn't see him fade away either so it's safe to say Grimmjaw does not have the power to purify his mates soul by killing them.

    But we still dunno if Arrancar fade away or not....

    It's kinda hard to tell what happened to grimmjaw's group.

    Only page showing their moment of death is in chapter 211. And it doesn't give certainty. Although you can see a panel were you see Shawlong ( or at least only small parts of him ) possibly desintigrating.

    But it's safe to say Iceringer and Demoura didn't get purified, as Chado and Ishida don't have that ability. Neither does Grimmjaw, so Luppi was just destroyed too.

    Actually, Iceringer was killed by boulders falling down on him. So he died of....natural causes? Where would he go?

    Maybe the complete Arrancars are reincarnated in the human world just like Shinigamis when they die instead of being sent to Soul Society.

    Arrancars don't seem to be able to cleanse souls with their zanpakutous. Maybe this is just telling us that they only gain certain shinigami powers, not all.
