Ichigo, aside from being the protagonist of Bleach, will get the attention of any viewer. His orange spiky hair stands out immediately. Do not forget his tall and athletic build that fans admire. His blunt and sarcastic personality will further intrigue fans to know more about him. But what are Ichigo’s powers in Bleach? Can he be considered a strong anime character?
Ichigo was once a sweet and innocent boy but his demeanor changed after his mother was brutally murdered by a Hollow. He became hot-headed and eventually realized that he could see supernatural beings. Shinigami Rukia Kuchiki gave him powers so that he can protect his friends and loved ones.
What Are Ichigo’s Powers in Bleach?
Throughout Bleach, Ichigo has earned and developed several abilities that continuously made him strong. His top ability is the reiatsu generation, in which Unohana Retsu mentioned that Ichigo’s production of reiatsu is more than what two Captains can make.
Another ability that Ichigo has is the Final Hollowfication. In this form, he was able to combine all of his powers into one final form that improves his strength and allows him to blend a Getsuga Tensho with his Gran Rey Cero. Will fans get to see this form in Bleach's Thousand-Year Blood War?
Ichigo’s Zanpakuto is Zangetsu, which serves as his main weapon. He eventually realized that he has two swords with each blade in different sizes. While his sword is already strong enough to beat enemies, Ichigo’s swordsmanship is an essential ability that he has.
He can be compared to a level of a Captain in terms of skill. He has this instinctive nature wherein he can easily pick up skills during the battle so he always has something new to offer during fights.
Ichigo is not only powerful because of his powers but his other abilities, like keen intellect, enhanced strength, and improved durability, helped in a win in his fights. He uses all his abilities to take advantage of the situation and claim victory.
Ichigo might be annoying for some viewers but no one can deny that he is a strong character. His abilities make him the Shinigami no one wants to mess with.
