    The answer is simple.

    Arrancar = Hollow that gains shinigami powers

    Vizard = Shinigami that gains Hollow powers

    A vaizard has three sentient spirits. His shinigami self, hollow self, and soul slayer spirit. He is his shinigami self normally.

    2 power-ups: Hollow mask, and soul slayer release.

    An arrancer just has his hollow spirit, however. He is normally in his shinigami form while keeping his excess hollow powers sealed in the form of a soul slayer.

    Again, a vaizard can power up with shikai, bankai, and putting on his hollow mask.

    An arrancer can only power up by ressurecting his special hollow abilities.

    An arrancer can use common hollow abilities and shinigami powers in his normal shinigami unreleased form, but a vaizard can only use his hollowpowers after putting on his mask.

    The two are completely different, and share only one thing in common and that is that they possess both hollow and shinigami abilities.

    Here is a Vaizard:

    The vizard are the antithesis to the arrancar, they are shinigami who have obtained hollow powers and whose shinigami powers remain dominant (although they do have to undergo a process and maintain their dominance over their hollow), while the arrancar are hollows that have obtained shinigami powers and whose hollow powers remain dominant. Having begun as shinigami, the vizard appear entirely human. Unlike the arrancar, they do not have holes or partial masks (common traits of transformed hollows) anywhere on their body, though they can produce masks on demand, and they carry zanpakutō like normal shinigami. When using their hollow powers, a vizard's appearance does not change except for the mask on their face and the color of their eyes, with the whites of their eyes turning black and the irises gold.

    Here is an Arrancar:


    An arrancar is a hollow that has removed its mask and gained shinigami powers. When hollows become arrancar, the chances of them retaining a humanoid form increase with their intelligence; only vasto lorde-class arrancar will definitely assume a humanoid form. If powerful enough, an arrancar can seal his or her excess power into the form of a zanpakutō. Unlike with shinigami, this zanpakutō is by no means sentient. It is simply the hollow's true form sealed into a sword. Therefore, an arrancar's release of their zanpakutō is merely a temporary restoration of their former selves.

    An arrancar is originally a hollow. Arrancars have their original forms sealed into the form of a zanpakutou while the rest of them take on the form of a shinigami. They gain shinigami techniques and can use both hollow and shinigami powers, unless I'm mistaken. There are many of them.

    A vaizard is originally a shinigami who can obtain the powers of a hollow along with a hollow's mask. They can use hollow techniques and shinigami techniques. They're extremely powerful and there are few of them.
    Are you absolutely sure?

    I don't think Arrancars gain Shinigami abilities per se; so far they exhibit no signs of being able to use Kidoh (though they do gain a neat little Shunpo-ripoff, Sonido), however they do gain a Zanpaktoh, which becomes the focus of their power instead. When releasing the Zanpaktoh, they return to their "true" form with augmented abilities as a result of being a Hybrid.

    The only way a Vaizard can access his Hollow powers is if he dons the mask...it's a sign that the Hollow side is being tapped into, otherwise, they can't do much with it. During Ichigo's Hollow Submission training, Full-Hollow Ichigo was about to blast Love with a Cero blast, and he had to resort to donning a mask in order to protect himself from it, presumably using his own Hollow Powers.

    The only...maybe odd exception to that is the Kuroi Getsuga Tenshou, which Shirosaki invented when first overtaking Ichigo during the Byakuya fight, but Ichigo can use that ability without being masked. Though I don't think it's actually a "hollow" technique, so much as it is Shirosaki's ability/fighting genius (compared to Ichigo anyway).

    Arrancar : Forced (Unnatural, Artificial) transformation
    Vaizard: Natural Transformation

    Nope, Vaizards can be forced too, like Ichigo, and Arrancars can be natural too, like Grand Fisher and other arrancars that appeared before Aizen.

    I was meaning Hougyoku transformation. Grand Fisher was Hougyoku'd according to Isshin due to his level being very high like a magic stick.

    Grand Fisher was not Hougyoku'd, check the manga.
    D-roy and Iceringer helped him break his mask far before Aizen took hougyoku from Rukia.
    D-roy and Iceringer were not hougyoku'd, too. And if there were no natural arrancars, Hitsugaya wouldn't bother telling about "Natural Arrancars", how they come to be and their differences from the artificial arrancar. Besides, then SS would have no idea what an arrancar is, since they wouldn't exist before Aizen's betrayal, but they did.
