Ichigo
Pre-Timeskip
Non-Canon


It spins. The world changes. It turns. Each time it touches the sun and the moon it takes a new shape. The one thing that does not change is my powerlessness. It's turning. If fate is a millstone, then we are the grist. There is nothing we can do. So I wish for strength. If I cannot protect them from the wheel, then give me a strong blade, and enough strength... to shatter fate.
~ Ichigo Kurosaki


Background

Ichigo Kurosaki is the main protagonist in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo. He's the son of Masaki and Isshin Kurosaki, a Quincy with the powers of a Shinigami. Years after the death of his mother, Ichigo uses his innate spiritual awareness to help local ghosts, and unlocks his potential as a Shinigami when Rukia Kuchiki comes along in pursuit of a Hollow. Ichigo then protect and befriends Rukia and then has got her powers who then receives Soul Reaper powers and since then takes on the responsibility of patrolling Karakura Town or Soul Society for any hollow or other hostile spirits that threaten the peace.

Intelligence: Gifted (Ichigo is analytical, perceptive, and deductive. Ichigo is deceptively intelligent, remaining among the top students in his class even when juggling his studies with his work as a Substitute Shinigami. Ichigo is able to adapt to battles such as when Ikkaku could change the form of his weapon, and essentially has a monstrous growth/learning rate (Able to learn a particular ability such as Bankai that takes decades to learn in just two days with a little help). In his high school, Ichigo's grades are almost always near the top, despite his work as a Substitute Shinigami.)

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Shunpo: An application of Hohō used by Shinigami, allowing for high-speed movement, much faster than the eye can follow, used in combat and travel, typically in short bursts. The skill can be summarized as taking the least amount of steps to reach point B from point A. While he makes skillful use of Shunpo, Ichigo is not particularly well-versed in the specifics of the technique and his use of it is fairly straightforward.

Zangetsu: Ichigo's Zanpakutō, which in its original, unreleased state, took the form of a very oversized katana, thanks to his immense but poorly-controlled spiritual power. Because of this, the sword itself was rather weak at this point, and it is more a manifestation of Rukia's deprived spiritual energy than Ichigo's. Once he learns its name, Ichigo's Zanpakutō stays in a constant released state due to his immense power.

Shikai: After first being released, Zangetsu appeared as a massive, knife-like blade with no formal hilt, only a cloth-wrapped tang. In this form, Zangetsu is about as tall as Ichigo, and he can wield it by the cloth to swing and throw it opponents like a flail, though he rarely does this. When he reclaims his Shinigami powers and combines them with his Fullbring abilities, Zangetsu's appearance shifts, giving it a more proper hilt and a length of chain at the bottom.

  • Getsuga Tenshō: Ichigo's signature attack, a highly condensed blast of spiritual pressure released from the tip of the blade with a slash, taking the form of a crescent as it rushes forwards, or even an omnidirectional burst. Though Ichigo uses this ability several times before finding out its name, once he does, its power is greatly enhanced.

Bankai - Tensa Zangetsu: Activated by pointing his Zanpakutō outwards and allowing its cloth to wrap around his arm, Ichigo's Tensa Zangetsu is very out of the ordinary for a Bankai. It shrinks Ichigo's normally massive sword down to a daitō, a long sword, with a black blade, focusing and compressing all of its power for use in hyper-speed combat. The appearance of his Bankai shifts after his training in the Dangai, covering his right hand with a black glove and wrapping its chain all around his arm.

  • Kuroi Getsuga Tenshō: The more powerful Getsuga Tenshō utilized by Ichigo in this state, now colored black. Ichigo can utilize it with more control than before, controlling its trajectory, keeping it within his blade to enhance the power of his swings, or firing it from the tip as a bullet.

Saigo no Getsuga Tenshō: The ultimate technique of Ichigo's Pseudo Bankai, in which he becomes one with Getsuga itself. Its name, the Final Getsuga Tenshō reflects its cost - after using it, Ichigo will lose all of his Shinigami powers. While the ability is active, Ichigo's hair turns black and grows to waist-length, while his body is wrapped in blue-grey bandages.

  • Mugetsu: Ichigo manifests a black blade from his spiritual energy and swings it at his target, bringing with it a massive veil of black energy that erupts upwards, completely consuming them and the landscape. After this, Ichigo will lose the transformation and quickly fall unconscious, awakening a month later with only a fragment of his powers, which will quickly dwindle to nothing, but he slowly regained them over the next two years.

Hollowification: Thanks to White, Ichigo was born with the powers of a Hollow, which he can channel in the form of a skull-like Hollow mask to greatly increase his capabilities. Originally, he could not control this transformation and would subconsciously produce the mask to shield himself from attacks. As well he would be possessed by his inner Hollow if he fell unconscious, but after his training with the Visored, he gained more control over the transformation. Still, in particularly dire circumstances, his inner Hollow may take control, and Ichigo may enter a form where he loses all sense of reason.

Hollow Mask: The Hollow mask was originally a sign of Ichigo's possession by his inner Hollow, but after his training with the Visored, it merely indicates he is utilizing his Hollow powers. To access his inner Hollow's power, Ichigo must summon the mask onto his face. He normally does this by placing one of his hands over his face and concentrating spiritual matter on it to manifest the mask (previously, it had appeared on its own before he mastered the Hollow within him), summoning the mask in a "ripping" fashion. With the mask in place, Ichigo's eyes irises become yellow, and he has black sclera and pupils. His voice has a slight Hollow echo to it. With the mask, he gains access to increased physical enhancements. This helps in combat in several ways, most noticeably being that it makes it easier for him to fight through severe injuries.

  • Augmented Getsuga Tenshō: When Ichigo wears his mask, the power, speed, blast area, force, and size of the Getsuga Tenshō become drastically augmented, to the point of seriously harming a foe. When used with his Bankai and Hollow mask in combination, his Getsuga Tenshō is stated to be his ultimate attack.

Full Hollow Form: When Zangetsu takes full possession of Ichigo's body, the body undergoes a full transformation into a Hollow creature. His mask resembles a Human skull, complete with a jaw joint and rounded forehead, and has dark red stripes on the left side. Unlike normal Hollows, this form used an actual weapon, using Ichigo's Zanpakutō. Ichigo later has his body taken over by Zangetsu once again. This time, the full transformation is very physically different in appearance and far more powerful than the previous one. In this form, Ichigo has long straight hair, reaching down to his waist, and a Hollow hole, smaller than his previous one, decorated with markings stretching from the hole across his chest and shoulders. In this new form, he has a different Hollow mask. It covers Ichigo's entire head, and its markings are different, for it has four spike-shaped marks, two of them stopping by the forehead and the other two stretching past the eyes and teeth, going past his chin and joining with the marks on his chest. The mask features two long forward-pointing horns, with black strips extending from their center towards the tips.

  • Cero: The signature attack of Hollows, and one utilized by the Arrancar and Visored as well, a powerful blast of concentrated spiritual energy fired like a laser. Ichigo's version of the cero is red and is extremely powerful.
  • Hierro: A defensive technique used by Arrancar that toughens their skin by reinforcing it with condensed Reiryoku, allowing an Arrancar to confront an armed Shinigami with their bare hands. All Arrancar use this ability in some form to gain their supernatural toughness, but even an exceptionally powerful Hierro can be bypassed by focusing one's Reiryoku to a finer, sharper point.
  • High-Speed Regeneration: An ability possessed by most Hollows, which allows them to rapidly recover from wounds. Abandoned by most Hollow and Arrancar in favor of more power, Ichigo retains the ability in his full Hollow form, proving capable of quickly regenerating lost limbs and even a hole in his chest, which would make it superior to the regenerative abilities of most others, as they cannot heal from serious organ damage.
  • Sonído: A technique used by Arrancar that allows for high-speed movement, effectively analogous to the Shunpo used by Shinigami, and used in bursts to traverse distances quickly and fight at these high speeds.
