General Information

Name: Kurosaki Ichigo
Appearance Age: 17-18
True Age: ~416
Gender: Male


Overall Apperance

Ichigo looks like a normal young man; the one exception to that is his spiky orange hair, a trait that he has been ridiculed about for years. He is a fairly tall, lean-built person with peach skin and brown eyes. Since becoming a Shinigami he has become noticeably more muscular, as noted by his sister Karin. When in his spiritual form, Ichigo wears standard Shinigami attire with the addition of a strap across his chest. Initially it was a thick brown belt to hold his Zanpakutō sheathe, but it later became a red rosary-like strap. Ichigo's appearance has caused several people, including Jūshirō Ukitake, to notice a similarity to Kaien Shiba; the former lieutenant of the 13th Division.



Personality: When he was young, Ichigo considered his mother to be the center of his world. Ichigo always smiled whenever he was with Masaki and he was regularly at her side, holding her hand. Despite crying whenever he lost in a match at the dojo he attended, Ichigo started to smile again as soon as he saw Masaki when she came to pick him up. At a very young age, Ichigo heard his father saying that his name means "to protect one thing", which instilled in him a desire to protect his mother. When his sisters were born he began attending a dojo for the sake of protecting them, since then the number of people he wished to protect has continued to grow, causing Ichigo to risk his life to protect both his family and strangers.

As a Human teenager, Ichigo's personality was much more complex. Stubborn, short-tempered, strong-willed and impulsive, he attempts to maintain a detached and "cool" image, despite claiming not to care about what other people think about him. He generally keeps his face set in a permanent scowl, with his eyebrows drawn together. His outspoken, hot-headed demeanor is a trait Ichigo himself acknowledged, and that if somebody picks a fight with him, he cannot help fighting
back. He coldly refers to his teachers as “instructors”. He is shown to be genuinely compassionate and empathetic about others, as seen by him promising to bring a Plus flowers and a toy plane or soothing others when they become upset. Ichigo is also a capable student, ranked 23rd in his high school. He studies regularly and does not neglect his schoolwork, claiming that he has "nothing better to do at home", though he actually works as hard as he does simply to overcome the misconceptions many have about him, which are based on his hair color and fighting. Ichigo hates fortune telling, horoscopes, fengshui, psychics and anyone whose trade involves taking money from people for
things that they cannot see. He has difficulty remembering people's faces and names. Ichigo becomes extremely shy and uncomfortable around nude or immodestly dressed women, a fact both Rangiku Matsumoto and Yoruichi Shihōin have teased him for. Ichigo has some trouble with
authority and traditional respect, often quite rude and disrespectful when talking to those older than himself, calling Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto "gramps" and referring to all of the old and new Shinigami captains by their given names.

When it comes to fighting, Ichigo has a complex sense of honor; he regularly seeks to exact revenge for the actions of his opponent, such as instilling the fear of being murdered in Shrieker and cutting off the right arm of Yammy Riyalgo in retaliation for him ripping Yasutora Sado's right arm apart. He would often taunt and belittle his opponents when fighting, sometimes even attacking without warning. Ichigo has a strong desire to win his fights and to win them in what he views as a legitimate manner. To this end, he has refused the aid of his inner Hollow, even when knowing that it
would allow him to win. Similarly, after regaining control of his body, he tells Ulquiorra to cut off his limbs so that they may have a fair fight and refuses to kill him when he is dying; saying that it was not the way he wanted to win.

Ichigo has even shown that he despises those who mistreat their allies in any way, even if they are his own enemies. He is disgusted when an individual berates his/her own allies, such as when Yammy calls Ulquiorra Cifer, Nnoitra Jiruga, and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez "trash". He also expresses anger towards those who go as far as attacking their own allies, expressing that he cannot forgive those who murder their own comrades.

Despite Ichigo's strong sense of honor, his will to win can waiver at times, which directly affects his overall energy levels and fighting abilities. His absolute resolve is depicted by his eyes glowing bright blue and his body being engulfed in a bright blue aura. The same is included with his Hollow powers, in which his eyes glow yellow and his aura turns black. Ichigo’s abilities at their peak allow him to hold his own, if not contend, against the toughest opponents. His will to protect his friends is shown to be so great that, even when battle-worn, he can fight at deceptively high levels, as seen when he effortlessly caught Grimmjow’s punch when in his released state. However, at the same time, his lack of resolve to win can also impede his spiritual energy and fighting prowess, shown when he goes into a state of depression and self-loathing when he loses a major battle or lets a friend down; after losing his fight against Yammy and Ulquiorra, thanks to the crippling fear of his inner Hollow, Ichigo's will became so weak, he was unable to even defeat a weak Hollow until Rukia helped restore his resolve.

As a Captain, Ichigo can be strangely serious about his duties, and akin to his school work back during his purely human days, will effortlessly finish paperwork and the like. He is protective of his division members, and open to their complaints and ideas, as long as they make sense to him. Should someone threaten those working under him, a swift and brutal punishment will follow.
He approves of people doing their best, and will do his own best to help them, all while trying to appear grumpy and not liking it at all. He has a heart of gold nonetheless.



Zanpakutō Name: Zangetsu

Zanpakutō Spirit Appearance:

Zanpakutō Spirit Personality: Zangetsu is portrayed as wise and calm in most matters, and fond of testing Ichigo in unusual ways, many of which have a purpose completely contrary to the stated goal. While the inner world is one of tall skyscrapers, Zangetsu has stated to prefer lusher, natural surroundings like bright sunny skies and green forests. Zangetsu has displayed the ability to temporarily close fatal wounds during combat, though whether or not this is a unique ability is unclear. Since first awakening his own Shinigami powers, Ichigo has had a strong connection to his Zanpakutō, as shown from how Zangetsu would regularly come to aid him with words of wisdom when Ichigo is in a difficult situation.

In Bankai form, he resembles a teenage version of himself and appears to be closer to Ichigo's age. He has long ragged black hair. He is dressed in a tattered, black hooded cloak that flares out into ragged ends. Zangetsu seems to portray the same cool and calm collectiveness as he would when not in Bankai; however, he is far more aggressive. When Ichigo enters his inner world for the first time in Bankai, he finds that the skyscrapers in the inner world are submerged under breathable water. Tensa Zangetsu claims that his inner word has changed due to his despair and that the tall skyscapers that pierced the sky represented Ichigo's hope and that all has been replaced by a replica of the town
Ichigo grew-up in. He goes on to say that while the rain has stopped, everything has been drowned because Ichigo stopped moving forward.
This reversed only after Ichigo finally managed to defeat both Tensa Zangetsu and his inner Hollow in battle. As the water was drowning away, the rain now stopped forever – the skyscrapers of dreams once again rising, Ichigo was back to his old self once more.

Inner World: Ichigo's inner world resembles a city made entirely out of skyscrapers which seem to never end upwards. Ichigo and Zangetsu can stand on the sides of the buildings, which is why the world normally appears sideways. The skyscrapers represent Ichigo's dreams and willpower, and it starts to rain in his world when his will wavers. Should it reach a low-point, then his inner world will be submerged under breathable water.

Sealed Zanpakutō Appearance: When Ichigo first becomes a Shinigami, his Zanpakutō is a standard-looking katana, but oversized with an equally-oversized brown sheathe hung by a strap over his right shoulder. It has a rectangular bronze hand guard with gently inward-curved edges, a stylized flame pattern on the long sides, and a simple decorative slit on the short ones. The handle is red with two light blue tassels on the end of the handle. The large size is due to the unfocused but immense amount of Ichigo's spiritual power, which he didn't know how to control. As a result, the sword itself was rather weak, since very little spiritual power was used to create it. Nevertheless, it was powerful enough to subdue a Gillian-class Menos and lesser Hollows, completely blocking a Cero from the former. It was even able to upturn the ground with a single strike. Because of its weak spiritual energy nature, Byakuya Kuchiki was able to easily cut off most of the blade during his first encounter with Ichigo and Kisuke Urahara subsequently slices it down to the hilt during their training, forcing Ichigo to learn the name of his Zanpakutō in order to release its true form. This sword is found to be a result of Rukia's deprived spiritual energy and not a result of his own power.

Release Phrase: N/A


Shikai Information

Shikai Appearance:
The Shikai form of Zangetsu looks like an oversized elegant cleaver rather than a formal "katana". He has no tsuba and no proper hilt; what Ichigo holds is the cloth-wrapped tang. The sword is as tall as Ichigo is, 1.75 meters, and has a black blade with a silver edge. The cloth wrapping on the tang seems to react to Ichigo's will, changing length at a thought or twining about the blade in an impromptu sheath. When in combat, the cloth falls away when necessary, shrinking back to a manageable size. The cloth can also be used to swing the weapon like a flail and toss it at opponents for mid-range combat, but this is rarely done. The cloth also can be done to wrap up wounds, as Ichigo does during his fight with Ikkaku Madarame, but this is also done rarely. Ichigo has also on more than one occasion used Zangetsu's wide blade as a shield from incoming attacks.

Shikai Abilities: ~Getsuga Tenshō: At the instant of the slash, Zangetsu absorbs his spiritual energy and releases highly condensed spiritual energy at the tip of the blade, magnifying the slash attack and then flies forward. This slash takes the form of a crescent moon or in the shape of a wave. Ichigo uses this ability without knowing its name several times but masters the technique later on during his Bankai training. As stated by Zangetsu, knowing the name of an attack heightens its power compared to its strength when the wielder does not know its name. The Getsuga Tenshō is a powerful technique with great force, capable of causing large-scale damage and destruction. While it is currently the only attack Ichigo knows from Zangetsu, Ichigo has used this technique in several different manners, such as striking the ground to create an omnidirectional blast to knock away incoming attacks or slashing at the ground to upturn it and crush everything in its path.

Master Swordsmanship Specialist: In terms of fighting style while in his Shinigami form, Ichigo relies mainly on swordplay, and thus would be considered a swordsmanship specialist. Aside from his initial training with Urahara, he is basically on a "learn as you go" training regimen thus his skill has developed by fighting rather than formal instruction, becoming even more capable with every fight. His overall skill has been shown capable of competing on equal grounds against the swordmasters of
Byakuya Kuchiki and Kenpachi Zaraki's caliber. While usually performing right-handed, Ichigo appears to be ambidextrous as he has shown proficient skill wielding Zangetsu in his left.

Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Physically, Ichigo is in top form even when he is not in his spiritual body. Ichigo has been trained in martial arts since he was a small child both professionally and by his father. He has repeatedly shown great agility and coordination in his attacks. In addition to having powerful kicks and punches, Ichigo has also shown proficiency in counterattacks, takedowns, and body locks. He has repeatedly been able to catch an opponent's weapon strikes with a single
hand.He also regularly defeats multiple bullies and gangsters, and is a better martial artist than Tatsuki Arisawa, who is ranked the second-strongest girl in all of Japan despite her fighting with a broken arm in the last few matches of the competition. While he stopped training officially after defeating her, his constant attacks from bullies and his father help keep his skills fresh. It should be noted that he was able to effortlessly dispatch three lieutenants with Shikai released Zanpakutō in rapid succession merely bare-handed.

Flash Steps Expert: Though not particularly versed in its various techniques, Ichigo has become proficient enough of the technique itself to keep up and even surprise high-level Shinigami with his speed. Even Byakuya Kuchiki, one of the most proficient users of Flash Steps in Soul Society, complimented Ichigo's growing mastery of the technique. During his first demonstration of this skill, he was able to quickly move to knock out three lieutenants and grab his sword before any of them hit
the ground.

Vast Spiritual Power: Despite his origins, Ichigo has been noted on several occasions to have tremendously vast levels of spiritual energy well beyond other Shinigami. He is capable of defeating a Gillian before awakening his true power with only his sealed Zanpakutō. Even at less than half strength, his spiritual energy is still comparable to a Captain-level fighter. His spiritual power is noted to be heavy, which surprised Renji Abarai, a lieutenant-ranked Shinigami. Ichigo constantly gives off reiatsu at the level of a captain. It is so overwhelming that even when worn-out in battle, he can continue fighting effectively while still capable of unleashing Getsuga Tenshō or even unleash and maintain his Bankai. Because Ichigo's spiritual energy constantly being so high even at its base
level without him consciously being aware of it, he rarely becomes exhausted in battle, thereby meaning the sheer resilience and amounts of energy Ichigo has is monstrous. Ichigo's spiritual energy is still rather difficult for him to control as he has no formal training in controlling it and upon the instances of Hollowfication his reiatsu fluctuates wildly, with it being unreadable at its lowest point and at its highest point more powerful than that of the 4th Espada Ulquiorra Cifer's. Due to this and that he has far more spiritual energy than his body can consciously contain, it leaks out constantly, preventing him from hiding it and effectively making stealth impossible when dealing with other spiritually-aware beings. However, he has learned how to harden his spiritual energy and enhance the strength of his attacks or act as a barrier to reduce the impact of attacks on him, if not negating them completely. He has shown some skill in channeling his spiritual power as he was capable of destroying the Arbor of the Sōkyoku, seemingly an impossible feat which surprised the Gotei 13, by channeling his spiritual power through his sword into the execution stand.

Enhanced Strength: Even without his Shinigami powers, Ichigo has shown himself to be deceptively strong, as shown from his ability to smash a man's head through a concrete floor. When he is in his Shinigami body, Ichigo's already impressive strength is greatly enhanced. His overall abilities are great enough that he was able to fend off three Shinigami lieutenants with a single punch each; one of which shattered one of their Zanpakutō at the same time. His strength is also great enough to stop repeated axe blows from Jidanbō and hurl Rukia several meters into Renji’s arms and still send them both skidding several meters more, both feats with a single-hand. He is strong enough to hold back the Sōkyoku, a halberd with the destructive force equivalent to one million Zanpakutō combined, just using his Zanpakutō.

Enhanced Speed: Even before learning Flash Step, Ichigo has repeatedly shown himself to be a very agile fighter. Ichigo has demonstrated great reflexes in battle, able to quickly dodge a strike with no wasted effort and he can instantly counterattack right after. He is able to strike quickly without warning and in rapid succession. His speed also allows him to follow the movements of faster opponents to better analyze their movements or blocking difficult and otherwise fatal strikes.

Immense Durability: While only a teenage Human, Ichigo has shown himself to be a highly resilient man, as shown from his ability to safely break free from a binding spell (albeit a low-level one) and withstand an assault from a large Hollow. When in his Shinigami form, Ichigo's physical durability is strengthened to the point he can continue fighting effectively even after receiving many injuries and can survive attacks that would easily kill normal Humans effortlessly. It was stated by Rukia that a Shinigami's life force is their spiritual power. As such, Ichigo is able to withstand attacks that would be fatal to most Shinigami. Uryū once stated that Ichigo was a monster in this regard.

Advanced Growth Rate: According to both Aizen and Urahara, Ichigo's most astounding ability is his growth rate: he grasps the basic control of advanced techniques in days where it would take several years for even the most gifted Shinigami. Shortly after getting Shinigami powers and with no previous training, began learning advanced spiritual energy sensing techniques by sheer instinct, as he proved he can use a spirit ribbon to find Yuichi Shibata (in bird form). Another example of his
growth rate is the amount of time he took to learn the Bankai of his Zanpakutō, which he learns in two days (albeit with the assistance of a special device invented by Urahara that was originally intended for three days). He also gains considerable experience in the use of Flash Step while training with Yoruichi, which was done over the same period as his Bankai. Besides his improvements in his Shinigami abilities, Ichigo was also shown able to greatly increase the time he could maintain his Hollow mask from eleven seconds to considerably longer amounts of time. During his first fight with Ulquiorra, he is instantly incapacitated by one Cero blast even with his Hollow mask (which broke within a second), but only a few hours later, he is able to withstand another Cero from Ulquiorra without undergoing Hollowfication and can analyze Ulquiorra's movements much better than before, whereas he "felt like [he] was fighting a machine or a statue", and failed to predict and counter his attacks.

Keen Intellect: Despite his somewhat punkish attitude, Ichigo has shown himself to be analytical, perceptive, and deductive. In his high school, Ichigo's grades are almost always near the top, despite his work as a substitute Shinigami. Aside from that, Ichigo appears to be able to determine the pattern of his opponent's battle methods and correctly deduce a proper counter-strategy to defeat his opponent's attacks.


Bankai Information
Bankai Appearance:
Tensa Zangetsu//
It is considered completely out of the ordinary for any Zanpakutō. Unlike most Bankai forms, which usually create some sort of massive creature or effect, Ichigo's Bankai actually shrinks his sword down to a daitō (Japanese long sword) with a black blade instead. The cross guard has four prongs bent out to form the shape of the manji (which is the kanji for "ban," meaning "full", as in "full release"). The blade itself can endure even the strongest of attacks, making it quite effective in blocking and deflecting incoming attacks; it can even withstand getting crushed by force. Instead of the cloth his Shikai form had, a short length of chain with a broken link at the end dangles from the base of the hilt.

Bankai Abilities:
  • Enhanced Getsuga Tenshō: Tensa Zangetsu retains the use of Getsuga Tenshō and can be used in the same manners, but can be used in an enhanced form. When used in Bankai, these potent blasts are black with a red outline and their path can be controlled, with explosively augmented power and speed. During Byakuya Kuchiki's fight with Ichigo, he refers to this attack as a "Kuroi Getsuga", referring to the attack's darkened color. Ichigo has stated that the Black Getsuga was originally Hollow Ichigo's technique and has been proven as Ichigo had no knowledge of it during his fight with Byakuya Kuchiki, using the original Getsuga when in Bankai, and Hollow Ichigo stated that all Ichigo was doing when he used the technique was copying his inner Hollow. Ichigo can also keep Getsuga Tenshō within Tensa Zangetsu to augment his sword swings.

  • Hyper-Speed Combat: Ichigo takes all the power of his Bankai and compresses it into a small, condensed form. Then, he uses the power of the Bankai to perform high-speed combat. His new speed is so great, that it also enhances his Flash Step prowess and allows him to create dozens of afterimages to confuse his opponent.

  • Enhanced Strength: Ichigo's Bankai also allows him to further enhance his natural great strength as
    shown from how effortlessly he blocked a punch from Yammy Riyalgo, an Espada known primarily for his immense strength. He is strong enough to cut through Yammy's Hierro with relative ease.The sudden boost in strength upon releasing allows Ichigo to break free from any attack that binds him and prevents him from moving.

  • Enhanced Spiritual Power: His reiatsu is so intense and rough as well as thick and heavy that it can suffocate Humans just by being in the general vicinity of his released Bankai. Ichigo's reiatsu was solid in his Bankai despite him only recently acquiring it. In addition, his already immense spiritual energy has grandly and explosively increased, and now has a deep black spiritual energy with a crimson outline. It has come to a point where the red-outlined black energy emanates off of Ichigo's
    body when his spiritual pressure is exerted, replacing his blue aura. Ever since Ichigo defeated his inner Hollow and affirming his place as a Vizard, he produces a black aura with a red outline that surrounds him as he initiates Bankai, rather than a white aura that shoots high into the sky.

  • Enhanced Bankai Duration: Furthermore, the fact that all of his energy is "compressed" means that usage of his Bankai doesn't expel as much spiritual power as other Bankai from the point of activation; thus allowing him to use Tensa Zangetsu at a much longer duration than any other Bankai users of his level.


Inner Hollow & Mask
Kurosaki Ichigo [APPROVED, 0-2++] 2r7pjbr

Inner Hollow Description:

Inner Hollow Personality: The Hollow-side of Zangetsu can best be described as an anti-thesis to both Ichigo and Zangetsu alike. He is a wild individual that relishes in the fight, and does not care for allies or friends. He will openly attack anyone once he is in control, although Ichigo's 'will' seems to somehow interfere with it. He also never holds back and will gladly kill an opponent.
Towards Ichigo, he acts as both an obstacle, enemy and helper alike. He accepted that Ichigo's willpower exceeds his, but also promised to take over should he fall. He gave Ichigo access to his power on that condition alone. He also almost always attacks Ichigo when he can, although the last time he did so was a test and Ichigo had to lose.

Inner Hollow Powers: Hollow Ichigo is superior to Ichigo in almost every regard. He is stronger, faster, his Getsuga Tenshou has more force, and he has full access to all the hollow powers Ichigo gets from him. He still can't overthrow Ichigo thanks to having the weaker willpower, though.

Hollow Mask Appearance: Look above this section for a picture.


Vizard Powers

Vizard Powers:
  • Power Augmentation: While wearing the mask, Ichigo's Hollow powers supplement his Shinigami powers, giving him a vast increase in both strength and speed. The explanation for this is that since Hollows boost their natural abilities by obtaining spiritual power around them, either by absorbing it in its ambient form or devouring it directly from another living being, Ichigo attains power from two separate sources: that from himself (drawn using his Shinigami powers), and that from his immediate environment (drawn with the help of his Hollow powers), allowing him to draw power from both sides.

  • Augmented Getsuga Tenshō: When Ichigo wears his mask, the power, speed, blast area, force, and size of the Getsuga Tenshō becomes 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. Ichigo's tremendous speed allows him to move faster than the Getsuga Tenshō itself, allowing him to fire multiple blasts from different directions. Ulquiorra Cifer believes that the
    Getsuga Tenshō is Ichigo's strongest attack, and has compared it to a Hollow's Cero, particularly a Cero Oscuras. The Kuroi Getsuga was first displayed by Ichigo's inner Hollow, and initially carried the risk of causing his inner Hollow to surface if used too much. With Ichigo's later control over his inner Hollow, this is no longer a problem. With the use of his new mask he was able to use Tensa Zangetsu one handed sending a Getsuga Tenshō powerful enough to send Yammy Riyalgo falling down head first while he was in his much larger and stronger Resurrección state.

  • Enhanced Spiritual Power: While wearing the mask, the spiritual power Ichigo possesses becomes even greater than before. During Ichigo's fight with Grimmjow the 3rd Espada, Tia Harribel, notes that the volume, concentration, and catastrophic nature of his reiatsu didn't seem like that of a Human but more like she was watching a fight between two Espada.It has been noted multiple times that with the mask on his spiritual energy changes into something similar to that of a Hollow.

  • Enhanced Strength: While using the Hollow mask, Ichigo gains a substantial increase in strength.
    As in his third fight with Grimmjow, he was able to block the destructive force of an Espada's strongest Cero, the Gran Rey Cero fired by Grimmjow. As evident after he unleashed his Hollowfication state in his battle with Ulquiorra, and was even able to slightly break his sword with a single slash. He is able to effortlessly block a Cero fired by Ulquiorra.

  • Enhanced Speed: While wearing his mask, Ichigo’s already formidable speed is greatly enhanced. During his second battle against Grimmjow, Ichigo’s speed was great enough to cmpletely overwhelm the Espada, who was unable to follow Ichigo’s movements and was forced completely on the defensive from his barrage of attacks. His attacks also become so fast that the opponent cannot even perceive them until after they are hit. He also becomes fast enough to outrun his own
    energy attacks, allowing him to strike and enhance them or launch simultaneous attacks at the opponent from different angles.

  • Enhanced Endurance: Apparently, using the Vizard form makes him much more pain resistant, Ichigo even states at the beginning of his Vizard training that "wearing the mask feels like being in control of someone else's body".

  • Enhanced Durability: His durability is even more evident throughout the fight as he is thrown through various buildings and obstructions. Ichigo shielded Orihime from a barrage of Grimmjow's dart bullets which have enough destructive force to destroy a large building. Even after taking this barrage, he was still able to fight and defeat Grimmjow, even destroying one of his Desgarrón claws,
    which was Grimmjow's most powerful technique.

  • Mask Regeneration: Ichigo seems to have the ability to repair small amounts of damage that is inflicted upon his mask. This is seen during his 3rd fight with Grimmjow and during his most recent fight with Ulquiorra. He has also been shown to have the ability to call his mask out a second time after it shatters, but with less benefits. Also his scleras do not change, and remain Human. This was first used against his first fight with Ulquiorra, although unseen, it was used to help defend against Ulquiorra's Cero, and again with his most recent confrontation with him, after he went into his released form.

  • Cero/Balla: Ichigo is able to fire the regular Cero and Balla from his hands. In Hollowfication, he is able to fire an extremely strong, three-circular Cero from in between his horns that has no special name, but is more devastating than normal.

  • Mask Shielding: The mask has also shown the ability to block attacks on Ichigo's body from within his robe, serving as a shield to stop or lessen attacks on him, sometimes saving his life. One example is when the mask blocked several hits from Renji's Zanpakutō during their fight; Hanatarō Yamada notes the hits could have been fatal.

  • Hollow Combat: When Ichigo fights with his mask on his fighting style becomes more instinctive than practiced. The Hollow mask also makes Ichigo more ruthless, akin to the battle style of Hollow Ichigo. Throughout the duration of the Hollowfication, Ichigo has shown less concern for injuries to his person, even going so far as to ignore grievous wounds to continue fighting.

  • Increased Mask Duration: After training with the Vizard and subjugating his inner Hollow, Ichigo can use his Hollow mask while retaining his personality, but could originally only wear it for eleven seconds at a time. His limit and Hollow powers greatly increases during his third battle with Grimmjow. The reasons behind Ichigo now being capable of fighting entire battles with his mask, currently remains unknown. Grimmjow speculated that Ichigo's improvements came from a subconscious need.


Hollowfied State

Hollowfied 'Resurrección' Appearance:

Hollowfied Abilities: [list][*]Desperate Power: This form is not one willingly used. Whenever Ichigo is unable to fight, or is overwhelmed with hatred and anger, together with a strong drive to save or avenge someone, his inner Hollow can take over him and force itself into control, knocking his mind unconcious. Therefore, restraining Ichigo or knocking him unconcious to begin with does not block this transformation in any way. Ichigo can not think in this form and acts upon instinct.
[*]Hierro: Ichigo obtains incredibly thick Hierro in this form, making it very difficult to hurt him at all. It also regenerates like his mask can in a normal Vizard state.
[*]Enhanced Cero: A Cero from this state can destroy an entire city block without much trouble, if not more. The strength of this Cero surpasses Cero Oscuras, has no known cooldown and fires at the speed of a normal Cero.
[*]Supersonic Speed: The speed of this form is roughly double of Vizard Ichigo's speed, able to completely surprise and outclass Ulquiorra in their fight without even trying. The limits of this ability have yet to be seen.
[*]Feel No Pain: Hollowfied, Ichigo feels no pain at all. Using it against him proves useless.
[*]Telekinesis of the Blade: Zangetsu can be thrown and returned to the hand of the Hollowfied Ichigo with a flick of the wrist, turning it into an incredibly powerful throwing weapon. Knocking Zangetsu away from him is impossible thanks to this as well.
[*]Enhanced Strength: The Hierro of Ulquiorra Cifer, which proved nearly impossible to penetrate earlier, did not even slow down the blade of Hollowfied Ichigo. The results of a full strength swing of this form is devastating, even with Ichigo's normal strength having reached far higher levels by now.


Saigo no Getsuga Tenshō (最後の月牙天衝, The Final Moon Fang Heaven-Piercer)
By using this technique, Ichigo becomes the Getsuga (月牙, Moon Fang) itself.


Abilities: In general, the strength of this form can be compared to the Hollowfied State - just enhanced further. Ichigo is a living weapon in this form, and can materialize the black 'Moon Fang' around every part of his body, and use it like he would use Zangetsu, just with enhanced reach, and even the ability to use multiple ones at the same time. His reach extends up to two entire miles in this form, if it has to.

Mugetsu (無月, Moonless Sky): Ichigo generates a blade of deep black spiritual energy in his hand and swings it towards the target. Doing so causes a massive veil of black spiritual energy to erupt upwards and approach the target, darkening the sky, and heavily damaging anything caught within the blast. The energy then continues to rise, dissipating into the sky. Using this ability was not enough to kill the immortal Aizen, but it almost managed to do so, in it's first use. Mugetsu was incomplete at that point, and robbed Ichigo of his spiritual power for a time. However, nowadays, Ichigo is powerful enough to use Mugetsu multiple times (growing weaker with each shot), and after his Getsuga form ends, he will be incredibly exhausted and usually unable to fight.
Currently, his Mugetsu is strong enough to 'split apart the sky and earth, consume all light, burn away the will, and destroy the soul completely' with a single swing. Only imagination serves to tell of the destruction a multi-fire Mugetsu could do, even while growing gradually weaker...



Ichigo was born on July 15th, as the son of Isshin Kurosaki and Masaki
Kurosaki, 15 years before he became a Shinigami. His sisters Karin
Kurosaki and Yuzu Kurosaki were born a few years later. When he was
four, Ichigo joined a karate dojo, where he met and befriended Tatsuki
Arisawa. Tatsuki beat Ichigo in every match they had. Tatsuki would also
help Ichigo if he was being picked on by bullies and cheer him up if he
was upset.

Ichigo was able to see Pluses for as long as he could
remember. He could see them so clearly that, as a child, he could not
tell the living from the dead. This resulted in him appearing to other
people to be looking at deserted places and talking to himself. This
caused people to say that he could see ghosts, though when Tatsuki
Arisawa asked him about this, he denied being able to see them.

June 17th, when Ichigo was nine years old, he and his mother were
walking home alongside one of Karakura Town's rivers; which was swollen
from heavy rain. Ichigo saw a girl near the river and thought that she
was about to jump into it. Unable to tell the difference between ghosts
and living people, Ichigo ran towards her to stop her, unaware that the
girl was the lure of the Hollow Grand Fisher. Masaki tried to stop him,
but he did not listen. After failing to grab hold of the girl, Ichigo
lost consciousness for a time. When he awoke, Masaki was lying on top of
him, covered in blood. Starting the day after Masaki's death, Ichigo
repeatedly skipped school to go to the riverbank where Masaki died.
Tatsuki found him there, where he would stay from morning until night,
wandering along the bank as if searching for his mother; squatting down
if he was tired and then wandering some more.

One day when Ichigo
was twelve, prior to the Clinic opening, he heard the bell ring and
answered the door to find a girl with her brother on her back. He had
been in a car accident and was covered in blood. The clinic did not have
the equipment necessary to save him and he died before an ambulance
arrived to transfer him to Karakura Hospital. Sometime later, he learned
that the girl was Orihime Inoue.

Ichigo later entered Mashiba
Junior High School. During this time, Ichigo had finally defeated
Tatsuki in a karate match and had not had another match with her since.
Ichigo regularly got into fights with thugs, due to the unusual color of
his hair. During one of these fights he protected Yasutora Sado from a
group of thugs. When the thugs later abducted Chad, Ichigo found them
and knocked down their leader, Yokochini. He used Yokochini's phone to
ring for an ambulance for each of the five thugs, and then beat up all
of them. After Chad was freed they made a pact to protect and fight for
each other, they have remained good friends since.

Shortly before
Ichigo became a Shinigami, he and Chad began attending Karakura High
School, and their reputations preceded them. During a fight with a gang
led by Reiichi Ōshima, Ichigo and Chad met Keigo Asano and Mizuiro
Kojima, saving the former in the process. While Keigo was initially
afraid of Ichigo and Chad, both he and Mizuiro later became friends with

The rest of the story... is the manga, folks. Up to the
point where Ichigo faced Aizen and Gin in Fake Karakura Town, that is.
What exactly happened those 400 years ago is now unknown, but it pushed
Ichigo into training for the rest of his human life.
It was during
that time that Ichigo ventured into his inner world once more – in
Bankai-state. Facing off against Tensa Zangetsu and his inner Hollow,
Ichigo scceeded in a battle that took multiple months in the real world,
his body being in the care of Kon and Urahara during that time.
Awakening from the deep trance, Ichigo had now full mastery over his
Hollow powers... and achieved the highest form of known power a Vizard
can have, A Resurrección. With strengthened resolve, he re-entered the
battles of the world.
However, as time was moving on, Ichigo noticed
something. His own body didn't age anymore, or at least only very slowly
– this was thanks to the fact that Tessai 'killed' him once by cutting
his Chain of Fate. Seeing as Ichigo was like a dead point in time, he,
one day, decided to finally 'die'. Leaving his real body behind to act
as a Gigai when needed, he departed for Soul Society – protecting his
city and world would be easier in the Gotei.
The Gotei accepted him for his role in the fall of Aizen, and soon he rose to the rank of a Captain, and is so far the only Vizard for whom the rules have been openly breached and opposed by the Shinigami to never accept Vizards amongst them.


RP Sample

Play Sample: //What.. That can't... a Segunda Etapa?!//
Ichigo felt the sudden, devastating increase of power in his enemy. But
that shouldn't be possible - so Ulquiorra wasn't the only one with this?
That was bad, real bad. The last time he encountered this, his Hollow
had to take control to even stand a change. But now, as he continued to
charge his Cero in the left hand. Because now, he was different from
before. Behind the hollow-yellow eyes with the red and black energy
swirling inside of it, his dreams and will to fight - it was unmatched
now. Even if his enemy released again after being released - the thing
Ulquiorra had called Segunda Etapa many years ago.
//I wouldn't have thought that I had to rely on... that...//
As his enemy was speeding towards Ichigo, the Vizard raised up his left
hand almost instantly. His reflexes and condensed form was the only
reason why his speed could stíll keep up with the enemy for now - but
the powers of the Espada had clearly increased since last time. He once
promised not to get hurt anymore - and broke that promise multiple
times. But he still wanted to do his best at it... and win this fight.
the energy blast at the scythe coming for him, the resulting blast and
shockwave pushed Ichigo backwards because he let it happen - he needed a
bit of distance for once, to do what he wanted to do more safely. Cause
now, he wouldn't hold back. In fact, she thought never crossed his mind
once. He didn't even know how to hold back anymore in a life or death battle.
he came out of the ensuing smoke and dust, Ichigos left sleeve was
almost as destroyed as his non-existant right one, with slight or a bit
stronger burn marks on his palm and under arm, but thanks to his mask
augmentation, he didn't suffer any large pain in this form, even when he
was seriously injured - this scratch was nothing. Yet.
"Seems like
today isn't my lucky day, huh?" Using a non-chanted Getsuga Tensho
infront of him to ensure he had enough room for his next move, with
incredible speed, Ichigo reached out his blade sideways from his body in
a perfect 90° angle, before moving his arm in, in an arc... And the
black blade stabbed right through his skin, the bone beneath, and
finally - his own heart. A small splat of blood - way smaller than it
should be from getting the heart stabbed - and a single word muttered,
sounding way more like a Hollow than Ichigos voice even with the mask.
transformation was swift and brutal. The erupting condensed power,
finally fully released and even more concentrated, it ripped apart his
Kimono on his upper body - in this form, the 'indicator' of his clothing
for his spiritual power was no longer in effect. As the blade was
retracted from the hole, the cut had already changed - into a gaping,
black Hollow Hole directly above where the heart of the Shinigami
should've been. The whole skin of the Vizard had already changed when he
still muttered the word - looking pale and white, it resembled a
Hollows skin out in the wild of the desert, granting protection not
unlike a Hierro, although not as strong. Above the hole on his heart,
black lines wandered upwards - seemingly being extensions to the more
complex, thick lines above Ichigos hellish mask in this form, which was
accompanied by two horns.
The chain around his right arm remained,
just like Zangetsu - but both on his hands and on his feet, he now had
the sharp claws of a Hollow. Long, orange hair floating behind him in
the wind, in this form, Ichigo didn't really 'gain' any abilities. It
was just his entire body and former abilities put into a massive
The ultimate form of a Vizard, against the ultimate form
of an Arrancar. Gripping his blade tightly, Ichigo let out a roar that
shattered the rocks beneath his feet like they were nothing. However,
thanks to needing to retreat for a bit to unleash his fullest form, he
couldn't make his first move with this form against his opponent before
he would get a chance to react, for sure...

Screw this shit get prepared because here comes my post.

Kurosaki Ichigo [APPROVED, 0-2++] Ichigo-kurosaki-ichigo-23516735-1600-12001_zps025b3053

Ichigo Kurosaki

The caressing blackness, how sweet it was to the touch. Zangetsu was laid over his shoulder as he stood above his prey. The arrancar squirmed a bit as he tried to back away from this monster of a man. It had been like this for awhile now, rouges and higher ups of shadowfall had sought to prove their worth against him..... it was a bit of a bother actually. The arrancar sat there the hole in which getsuga tensho had ripped through was still laden on his chest, it reached for its Zanpakutō aiming it at Ichigo who seemed very well bored of this situation. "HOW DARE YOU, DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM I A.." The words were cut short by Ichigos own words striking back at him. "yeah i know just who you are, your the coward who killed his own men to try and beat me...... your Trash" He looked at the man his fear set into motion, his hand was shaking with fear of this shinigami

At this point Ichigo had walked backwards to check upon the other mans comrade. The boy lay there scared as Ichigo came towards him, but as Ichigo crouched beside him checking upon the wounds of his own enemy ...... it was unheard of. As he sat there he let a smile cross his face trying to reassure this man that everything was going to be okay. But the end had already begun, the arrancar behind Ichigo had pounced the blade intending to stab down through his chest. The boy lay there knowing he had to do something. As the blade came swiftly downwards the arrancar boy pushed ichigo to the side, the blade went swiftly through his mask killing him.

His hand grasped the hilt of zangetsu, letting it fly towards this Arrancar face. With grimace and anger in his voice he let out his next words for all to hear "GETSUGA TENSHOU!" The move had hit with deadly force, but it was not over yet. The smoke rose crashing away to reveal the arrancar sitting there, but he was no longer the same. "Ressurecion" The move was easily noticeable the Arrancar had returned to its original form.... but something was odd. As it sat there its breathing was ragged, the large gaping wound on its upper torso was indication to ichigo he had missed.

Ichigo jumped back as this hollow like mans claw crashed down upon his position. He had to do something and fast, and he knew just what to do. " BANKAI!" The words ripped through the air like a knife through butter, the massive blade of Ichigos was pointed straight towards this beast and after a sharp burst of reiatsu launching out, dust flying everywhere there it stood .... Tensa Zangetsu. Like a burst of air he was gone reappearing in front of this hollow like beast, the blade cutting into its upper torso. With almost seconds in between he was gone again, now reappearing about 16 paces behind the beast. With a quick slash in an 80 degree arc the cold blackness of getsuga tenshou launched at the beast. But with a flash he followed this move in, the pointy tip of his sword looking to end this battle.

This was truly Ichigo Kurosaki

That suppressing feeling, the running, the irreparable desire... to protect. Ichigo had taken a long walk outside the Seireitei, but this lasting weight he had on his shoulders wouldn't go away. For so long he he had protected that which he loved and now it was at risk again. It wasn't the hoards of hollow and arrancar in front of him, it was something much more cruel, the someone or something that pulled these beasts strings. Would he be strong enough to fight? could he face this new challenge? ... could he saved those he loved? The thoughts rushed through his head. As the cold steel came floating down towards his neck he knew.

I wont lose

Steel had met steel and Ichigo knew he couldn't falter, if he looked away now he would truly die. Ever since the day he was gifted with this power he knew just what he was fighting for. The blade flurried through the crowd, Ichigo moved crushing one after the next. His blade smashed through his opponents and one after the next they all fell. He stared straight ahead never looking back... this was truly Ichigo Kurosaki, he was strong and he would fight. As the heavy darkness enveloped his blade he let it fall ripping through this hoard, the cold look upon his face. He couldn't back away, he couldn't run... to many people were depending on him and he refused to let them down. This new found strength drove him and these enemies would succumb to his might. This was no ordinary battle, this was a battle for his soul ...... a battle for the future.

He would fight to protect all those who depended on him! he would fight to survive! and he would fight ...... to win. As he stood within this field he made a promise to himself. He promised he wouldn't let himself lose, not to this new threat, not to these hollows and especially not to himself. As he gripped the hilt of Zangetsu, his knuckles growing white as he tighten his grip. The power and spirit pressure casting from him, he launched out roaring for all to hear.
