    Ichigo is one of the strongest characters in ‘Bleach’ and his powers only seem to grow as the series continues. Ichigo grew a lot stronger from when he first started as a Shinigami and at the start of TYBW, he is still one of the strongest characters. 

    His strength is proven when Yhwach considers him and Aizen a special war power. He did not even consider Yamamoto a special war power and he was far stronger than Ichigo. 

    In addition to that, Ichigo was sent to Hueco Mundo to distract and delay him when Yhwach and the sternritter attacked the soul society. This is because they were aware of Ichigo’s power.

    Ichigo has his Bankai which is extremely strong. In addition to that, his Visored form is also available for him to use. But his most devastating and dangerous form is his Vasto Lorde which can easily destroy soul society. This is how strong Ichigo was at the start of ‘TYBW’. He grew to be even stronger when he accepted Zangetsu as a part of him rather than a separate identity at the end of the ‘Bleach: TYBW’ anime.
