Stops at 6 or clears. With both combatants having prep and full knowledge makes this iffy. Merlin's use of short notice prep, infinity, and her versatility gets her through the first 5 rounds mid-high diff. She could stop at 6 due to Kisuke's 1000 situation prep style and creative use of portable gigai with standard gear.

Bonus: Team stomps. Aizen and Kisuke together might be enough with 10 minutes prep fr.

Stops at 5. Aizen and Kisuke are better prep gods than Merlin she should sweep rounds 1 through 4 with hardly any difficulty tho

Even with full knowledge I'm not sure how she bypasses askin. I feel like he's deadly enough to stop her

Szayel- Only character she can beat.

Uryu- She has no way to overcome Anti-Thesis and get's stomped in power.

Askin- He'd easily become immune to her magic and casually poison her.

Mayuri- Smarter than everyone in NNT with better prep feats and a broken Bankai that's all about feeding it information in order to have it counter the enemy. With full knowledge he’d stop her easily.

Aizen- Also smarter than everyone in NNT and if he doesn't feel like outright stomping her himself he'd just casually create a hollow that would perfectly counter her.

Urahara- Smartest character in the HST with the best prep feats in the HST and his hado 99 is also a perfect counter to her infinity.

She could honestly stop at 4 for round 1

Can’t say for 2, haven’t kept up with NNT that well.

She probably stops at 5 for round 3.

She can go to 5 no issue. Her physicals are not impressive anyhow. So, equalizing stats actually gives her a lot of advantage.

@leothegreatest: Merlin prepped on the fly for mental attacks, something her verse has no resistance for. Come back when mayuri does that level of prep.

@ecoblitz: Mayuri rearranged his internal organs and redesigned his bankai and brought toxins to use despite only having like 10-20 mins of prep time, probably less.

@ecoblitz:

She didn't prep on the fly for mental attacks she already saw Cusack use that ability on Arthur and the way she countered is by having a stronger spirit and will iirc.

This and he's even prepped for the possibility that an enemy taking over Nemu's body so he laced it with poisons just in case which is what took Szayel down.

Szayel can clone bunch of Merlins with the exact same abilities as her that copy her moves... It's going to take a lot of effort to go past him.

She is not getting past Uryu. I would love to see someone saying she makes it to 6 post a counter to the Antithesis.

Cannot make it past Anti-Thesis.
