-Threadhopping with this character - yes, no, or what?:
Yes. Always okay, and highly encouraged.
-Hugging this character?:
-Giving this character a kiss?:
Lolz, go ahead. He won't like it, and will punch you, though. But we like comedy.
-Punching this character (provided they are given an opportunity to fight back):
Totally okay. This guy's a punk at heart, so he knows how to handle himself.
-Is there anything YOU DO NOT WANT MENTIONED near this character?:
...Errrr, can't think of anything. Just don't make cracks about his mom, friends, rest of his family. Them's the fighting words.
-Is there anything you need us to KNOW about interacting with this character? Special physical features, fighting abilities, STUFF:
Ichigo's a shinigami, aka a death god, aka he helps to off bad/evil spirits and guide the good spirits to Soul Society (basically a place for spirits). Therefore, HIGH SPIRITUAL POWERS!!!111! He can sense other supernatural things, I think. Or at the very least, he can tell if you're not completely human, because something would seem OFF to him. Letting me know whether your character's not human or not would be extra helpful.
When he's a shinigami, in canon, normal people would not be able to see him. Obviously, this place being the island and where weird shit goes down (and the fact that we had other shinigamis here, and it'd be stupid for like, half of the island to not see them--), ...here, you can see Ichigo in his shinigami form too. OR, if you want, you can have your character NOT see Ichigo. Either way is fine with me, personally, really; but Ichigo might freak out if he finds out that normal people can see him when he's out there doing his shinigami stuff. Like I said, I don't mind at all either way. Whatever gets the most interaction and lols and good stuff, yeah?
Shinigamis fight with swords, and Ichigo's good at it. He has a giant cleaver-like thing for a sword/weapon, and it's never sheathed/always released. When he's in bankai form, aka a second release for his sword (think of it as like, his power up move, for those who don't watch/read Bleach), Ichigo's swords becomes a regular katana, but it's completely black. It gives him increased speed/agility, so he moves faster than you can see him. His main attack is GETSUGA TENSHOU, which is basically a giant release of his concentrated spiritual power blast...thing. It can cut down cliffs and all sorts of stuff. Giant blast of energy. When in bankai form, this can take the shape of black crescent-shaped fangs, although so far, that's only utilized by Ichigo's inner hollow.
Hollow!Ichigo: Due to various shit and stuff that Kubo has yet to reveal -- Ichigo has a hollow version of himself, and Ichigo can use this in battle (a vaizard). When he does, he has a mask on a la this userpic.
Even greater spiritual power, etc etc. Powerful attacks, blah blah blah. When the mask breaks, that's when Ichigo comes out of his vaizard mode.
Otherwise, his hollow self looks like this!
Completely white hair, white robes, etc etc. Basically Ichigo's shinigami uniform, but all the colors reversed, and he's all...white and stuff. Hollow!Ichigo's also a complete jackass, loves to fight, vulgar and generally sadistic and violent. ....Complete instinct = those two words describe him pretty well.
-ANYTHING ELSE PLEASE MENTION HERE:
Orange hair is his trademark! Annnd he's your typical shounen retard, though he has his good moments too. He can't remember names for shit, though. And he fails with faces, too.
Comes from modern day Karakura (fictional city, obviously), Japan.
