...If fate is a millstone, then we are the grist. There is nothing we can do. So I wish for strength. If I cannot protect them from the wheel, then give me a strong blade, and enough strength... to shatter fate.
~ Ichigo Kurosaki

Ichigo Kurosaki is the main protagonist of the anime/manga series, Bleach. He appeared in the 85th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Naruto VS Ichigo, where he fought fellow Shonen Jump protagonist, Naruto Uzumaki from the Naruto series. He was voiced by Adam Park.


Ichigo Kurosaki is a high school student who long had the ability to see ghosts, allowing him to meet the Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki while she was hunting a gluttonous spirit called a Hollow. Their meeting led to Ichigo becoming a substitute Soul Reaper while Rukia heals and regains her strength. But it only resulted with Ichigo dealing with more than just Hollows, first facing the Soul Society's 13 Court Squads over Rukia's action and then the traitorous Soul Reaper Sōsuke Aizen and his army of humanized-Hollows called Arrancars while dealing with an internal conflict of a Hollow manifesting in his being. It was only while facing Yhwach and his Wandenreich army that Ichigo finally learns the origin of his powers, though his resolve remained the same it was when he has Rukia transfer her powers to him: To protect his friends and family.
