When Ichigo briefly lost his [[{{Shinigami}} Soul Reaper]] abilities, he had to go through Urahara to regain them. In his Inner World while turning into a Hollow, he ran into a [[TheStoic stoic]] middle-aged man with CoolShades, long hair, and a BlackCloak that helped him find his [[EmpathicWeapon Zanpakuto]] and regain his powers. He was not able to tell Ichigo his name during their first meeting, so Ichigo got into the habit of calling him "Old Man" rather than Zangetsu even after realizing that he represented his own power. In truth, he is the manifestation of Ichigo's Quincy powers, and is embodied by the smaller blade of Ichigo's true Zanpakuto.

* {{BFS}}: His sealed form is a gigantic katana; his initial Shikai form resembles a six-foot khyber knife and, after being upgraded by Ichigo's Fullbring, resembles an equally-massive bowie knife.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Yoruichi tells Ichigo that one of the prerequisites for attaining bankai is manifesting one's Zanpakuto Spirit in the physical world. Kenpachi's Zanpakuto Spirit has been manifested all along and he never realized it.



* MergerOfSouls: They are created from the souls of deceased Soul Reapers, and become the physical manifestation of their master's Zanpakuto spirit, which is a part of their soul.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite his [[LightIsNotGood white garb and pale skin]], he is a bloodthirsty entity whose reiatsu is black -- with a red outline in the anime -- and described as abnormally heavy and malevolent, and for the early part of the Arrancar Arc he was an antagonist seeking to take over Ichigo's body. However, his intent in doing so was to protect Ichigo, who he eventually reconciles with.

However, his intent in doing so was to protect Ichigo, who he eventually reconciles with.



* HiddenDepths: After facing off against Ichigo for the first time the Inner Hollow complemented Ichigo's strength to the Old Man in a calm manner contrasting his earlier gleeful bloodlust, and despite his and Ichigo's antagonistic relationship, Ichigo's safety has always been his first priority: He [[SplitPersonalityTakeover intervened]] during Ichigo's battles when he was in danger of being killed,[[note]]Although due to his low opinion of Ichigo he attempted to do so permanently.[[/note]] grows from Ichigo's despair in order to completely eliminate the source of that despair, and when merged with Tensa Zangetsu, tearfully admits that all he ever wanted to do was protect Ichigo.
* HornedHumanoid: The mask the Inner Hollow wears when he shows up during the Final Getsuga Tenshou training sports a pair of forward-facing horns.

** Ichigo's Bankai version of Getsuga Tensho is explicitly stated to draw upon the Inner Hollow's power, and as such, using it initially puts him at risk of Hollowfying. Its power is exponentially magnified when used in conjunction with his Hollow mask, and Ulquiorra even compares it to his own Cero Oscuras, though Ichigo takes offense to this. With his true Zanpakuto's Shikai, Ichigo can fire the Black Getsuga Tensho from his larger sword, which embodies his Inner Hollow.

Added DiffLines:

* TrashTalk: White Zangetsu is harshly critical of Ichigo's lack of bloodlust, which he makes no secret of during their BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind; and when he takes over Ichigo's body he also insults Byakuya in the Soul Society arc and Dalk and Koga in the anime's Bount arc.

* BattleInTheCentreOfTheMind: The Inner Hollow and Ichigo duel each other twice, the first time in order to show Ichigo how to properly use a Zanpakuto and the second time over who will be the "king" of Ichigo's body during the Visored Training arc, ending with Ichigo suppressing the Inner Hollow and returning control of his Inner World to the Old Man. When Tensa Zangetsu summons the Inner Hollow during the Final Getsuga Tensho training arc, Ichigo mistakenly assumes he's to fight him a third time.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: From the moment he's introduced, the Inner Hollow is censorious of Ichigo and constantly berates him. He's best remembered for delivering a particularly vicious speech to Ichigo during the Visored training arc, rebuking him for lacking the bloodlust and instinct required to keep himself alive and outlining his intent to permanently usurp Ichigo's status as the "king" of his body.
