* LeftHandedMirror: Ichigo and Uryuu are designed to be opposites of each other. Ichigo's battle uniform is Japanese clothing, black on white. Uryuu's clothing is European, white on black. Ichigo fights close up with a sword, Uryuu fights at a distance with archery. Ichigo is impulsive in battle and fights on instinct while Uryuu is a thinker and a strategist in battle. Ichigo's powers are Shinigami-dominant and Uryuu is a Quincy. The Quincies and Shinigami are mirror opposites of each other, even their souls are aligned as opposites, and the two sides have been at war for a thousand years. Kubo has stated in interviews that Uryuu is left-handed to complete the mirroring of Ichigo, and characters have observed in-universe that the pair are NotSoDifferent due to their mirrored personalities and abilities complementing each other perfectly.



* TheSouthpaw: He uses his left hand for sewing and drawing his bow. Particularly savvy opponents like Ulquiorra and Ginjo will specifically aim to disable Uryu's left arm to prevent him from shooting back.

* HarmlessFreezing: Collapsing after her fight with Aaroniero, Rukia and her environment freeze over. Although Byakuya has to blast her free of the ice, the only injuries she sustains are from her battle with Aaroniero. The ice is nothing more than a momentary inconvenience. It's eventually revealed that her Zanpakutou freezes her targets by first freezing her body solid. Although she can return to a perfectly healthy state afterwards, she has to "thaw" slowly to avoid killing herself.

Although Byakuya has to blast her opponents, resulting in Grimmjow breaking free of her ice by claiming her attempt to freeze just the ice, the only injuries top layer of his skin isn't enough to hurt him. As Nodt is similarly dismissive of her when she sustains are from uses her battle with Aaroniero. The ice is nothing more than a momentary inconvenience. It's eventually revealed that new Royal Guard-empowered Shikai, although her Zanpakutou freezes Bankai averts this trope by being a danger to both her targets by first freezing her body solid. Although she can return to a perfectly healthy state afterwards, she has to "thaw" slowly to avoid killing opponents and herself.

His growth rate is phenomenal, quickly allowing him to surpass talented veterans. He has the ability to gain many different kinds of powers. However, because they interfere with each other, his competence level fluctuates until he's able to resolve the issue. His zanpakutou is Zangetsu, it was originally a rather large blade created by a fusion of hollow and Shinigami powers and after obtaining his own asuchi it changes to two large blades, one of which is huge and powerful, the other of which is a smaller, arm-length blade. His Bankai is Tensa Zangetsu, originally a slender pitch-black long sword which compresses his vast power within his body, allowing him to perform combat at blinding speeds and with great strength.

* BroughtDownToBadass: Although he had trained with Tatsuki in a karate dojo for years before the start of the story, in the Lost Agent arc, he acknowledges it's his time spent as a Soul Reaper that left him with the reflexes and speed to be an effective fighter even after his powers have left him.

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: While being attacked by Yhwach, Ichigo spontaneously uses a new power (Blut Vene) to prevent himself from being ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice through the neck by Yhwach's sword. However, Yhwach's explanation that Ichigo's Quincy heritage was awakened by his desperate situation exposing his deepest soul to the reiatsu of a pure Quincy ties in to both his spontaneous healing during his first fight with Kenpachi and with the power restoration technique that Ryuuken uses on Uryuu.
