Ichigo Kurosaki is a Vizard - a Soul Reaper with Hollow powers - who has confronted both Organization XXI and Akatsuki on various occasions. He later becomes a fulltime member of Organization XXI in their battle against
For the most part, Ichigo appears like a normal teenage boy; 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 person with peach skin and brown eyes. Since becoming a Shinigami , he has become noticeably more muscular.
Personality-wise, Ichigo is a stubborn, short-tempered, occasionally confrontational, spontaneous, determined, outspoken, strong-willed, impulsive young man. Despite being witty and cynical, he is shown to be genuinely compassionate and empathetic about others such as soothing others when they become doubtful. He is also extremely protective of his friends and family.

Hollow Mask: The Hollow mask was originally a sign of Ichigo's possession by the Hollow within him, but after some training it has become indication that he is merely utilizing his Hollow powers. To access Hollow Ichigo's power, Ichigo must summon Hollow Ichigo's mask onto his face, which is normally done by placing one of his hands over his face and concentrating spiritual matter on it in order 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 has access to most if not all the abilities of a Hollow even subconsciously using a Cero. Ichigo can also sustain his Hollow powers even if portions of his mask have been broken off without restoring them.
Enhanced Spiritual Power: While wearing the mask, the spiritual power Ichigo possesses becomes even greater than before.
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.
Enhanced Strength: While using the Hollow mask, Ichigo gains a substantial increase in strength.
Enhanced Speed: While wearing his mask, Ichigo’s already formidable speed is greatly enhanced. During his battle against Gabriel, Ichigo’s speed was great enough to completely overwhelm the opponent, 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 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. Mask Regeneration: Ichigo seems to have the ability to repair small amounts of damage that is inflicted upon his mask. This "repairing" of his Hollow mask manifests in a similar manner to the Hollow regeneration he exhibited when he was subconsciously transformed into a Hollow while being trained to contain his inner Hollow. It is currently unknown to what extent the damage can be to his mask before he is unable to repair it. 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 sclera do not change, and remain Human.
