-->Ichigo's bankai was not the most powerful. It was not even the fastest. What it was, however, was the ''easiest to use''. Ichigo had attained it and fought a captain with decades of experience an hour later, and had been able to do so because it needed no special abilities or skills beyond the fighting techniques he was already familiar with.... who was permanently in Shikai release, who compensated for the lack of decades of practice by using his Bankai as though it were his Shikai, who used his mask as though it were his Bankai, and who had still further means to increase his fighting ability.

* ILikeThoseOdds: When Ichigo starts up a sparring session with Ikkaku, the latter is somewhat unwilling to fight since the former is wearing a blindfold as practice for fighting Aizen:
-->'''Ikkaku''': Hmmm… you got guts, Ichigo. Even if you're blind I'm not gonna go easy on you. You sure you want to do this?
-->'''Ichigo''': You don't think this is a good idea? ''(ponders)'' Yeah, you're right. This is really unequal.
-->'''Ikkaku''': ''(surprised)'' Huh?
-->'''Ichigo''': ''(smirking)'' Maybe if I tied one arm behind my back?
-->'''Ikkaku''': Oh, you're going ''down,'' punk!

* PoisonousPerson: The author added this effect to Ichigo's PhysicalGod form to give him a weakness; basically anyone who touches Ichigo's bare skin while he's in this form gets severely burned, which makes sense given what we know about spiritual pressure if the individual in question were indescribably powerful.
