Can luffy beat Aizen on Speed ?Luffy’s technique gear 2nd allows him to speed up his blood flow and metabolism in his body which in turn makes him faster than a normal human can perceive. Luffy has also dodged lightning from Enel at a very close distance making his reflexes at least faster than lightning, his gear 4 technique works in a similar way which means in gear 4 Luffy becomes even faster than his gear 2nd state. While there is no official way to gauge Speed in the Bleach Universe with just manga and anime alone and the only speed technique that is mainly used by the shinigami is called Shunpo which makes the user fast enough for the normal human eye to not perceive them. Aizen has shown in multiple occasions that he is way faster than the captains and the visors as well, he has displayed speed which seems to be on par if not faster than Yoruichi who is the fastest character in Bleach, essentially making Aizen the fastest character in Bleach The winning point for this criterion will be handed to Aizen Sosuke from Bleach.
Can luffy beat Aizen on durability ?Luffy’s Devil Fruit allows him to have a rubble-like body that protects him from bludgeoning attacks only making him vulnerable to slashing or piercing attacks. Luffy clads himself in Armament Haki when he uses his gear 4th technique making him ever sturdier and quite possibly resistant to his only weakness which is stabbing or piercing attacks. Last but not least Luffy’s gear 5 allows him to give rubber-like properties to his surroundings as well making him even more durable as he can protect himself using his environment. Aizen Sosuke before absorbing the hogyuko was quite a normal shinigami with not-so-special durability and one would not expect him to tank any hits from powerhouses in the series however after he absorbed the Hogyuko. Aizen essentially become immortal and he can regenerate himself from any fatal attack’s giving him a tremendous amount of regeneration as well as durability making it almost impossible for anybody to hurt him. The winning point for this criterion will quite one-sidedly be handed to Aizen Sosuke from Bleach

Aizen has had no trouble destroying mountains and even cities quite easily and later on in the series he had grown strong enough to fight both Dangai Ichigo as well as Yhwach making him as strong as or stronger than both Dangai Ichigo and Yhwach, the sheer spiritual pressure of Aizen is enough to destroy Hueco Mundo and cities and he was later in the series said to be able to destroy both Hueco Mundo and the human world making him essentially Planet level. The winning point for this criterion will be handed to Aizen Sosuke from Bleach.
Can luffy beat Aizen on Abilities/Hax ?
- Luffy has 4 techniques that he mainly uses in his battle, his Gear 2nd gives him faster blood flow and metabolism which in turn increases his speed and healing abilities, Luffy can blow tremendous amounts of air into his bones and body through his joints which allows him to turn his limbs into the size of a giant increasing his destructive capabilities. Gear 4 allows Luffy to combine both gear 2nd and gear 3rd with Armament Haki covering his torso which makes him more durably, faster, and stronger than he ever was.
- Last but not Least Luffy’s gear 5 can allow Luffy to fight more ‘’ freely ‘’ by turning his surroundings into rubber-like properties and gives him more elasticity to increase his stretching-like abilities which would give him more force behind his attacks, Luffy can also give his opponents rubber-like properties if it is to his advantage.
- Aizen Sosuke being a shinigami is a master of shunpo which makes him incredibly faster than most of his foes, Aizen also has an immense amount of spiritual Pressure which is strong enough to make his enemies choke in fear and destroy his surroundings from just his pressure alone. Aizen’s Zanpakuto bankai is called Kyoka Suigetsu which allows him to put anyone under complete hypnosis which he can use to manipulate and control everyone without them realizing it.
- After implanting the Hogyoku inside him Aizen gained enhanced Durability, strength, and speed but all of this comes short in comparison to Aizen’s strongest ability which is an Insanely strong amount of regenerative ability making him essentially Immortal or impossible to kill and the only way to deal him in this state is to seal him away.
