Ichigo’s potential is reason enough why he is among the Special War Power designation. Moreover, ‘potential’ refers to the titular protagonist’s abilities as well as his distinctive growth rate.

Kenpachi Zaraki was included in Special War Powers owing to his tremendous combat strength and skills. In addition, he earned the title of the 11th Kenpachi by killing the current Kenpachi. For the unversed, the epithet is reserved only for the strongest Shinigami in the Gotei 13.

Ichibe Hyosube’s wisdom makes him a threat
