Soul Slayer Type?
I just noticed this.
All soul slayers have a type. Byakuya = Nature (you could say) The captain commander = Fire Hitsuyga = Ice. But what about Ichigo?
You can say he doesnt have on but think of this. Ken-chan (forgot his name) may have the same type as Ichigo. They have the same attributes. Both of their spirit power continues to rise at an alarming rate. They cant control it. Their eyes glow when they get power or w/e. They may have the same type of soul slayer. They are very similar so its a possibilty.
Just a thought. I also apologize if someone made a thread like this before.
This could have easily gone in the Q&A thread

The distinction you made about some being of nature, others of the elements and some other of not being any ogf them (like for Ichigo a man) is not to be made. Each one is different and has specific attributes yet they all have a materialisation state for which we still have to see. So far we've seen Zabimaru and Zangetsu.
And to be honest I found your last paragraph confusing.
Thats not what I meant. I mean their released state. Captain commanders the the strongest fire-type zanpaktou in soul society as is Hitsugya since he has the strongest ice/water type. They even said it so its not speculation. Its basically saying if Ichigo released form has a type it could be the same as Kenpachi due to there similarities. I'm basically saying Kenpachis soul slayer could have chararistics to Ichigos.
We know the following classes of Zanpakuto:
Kidou: these use demon arts abilities in combat. They can be subclassed by element and binding/blast, just as real kidou spells can.
Examples: Hitsugaya's shikai and bankai (kidou, elemental, ice), Ichigo's shikai (kidou, non-elemental, blast) Soi Fong's shikai (kidou, non-elemental, binding)
Melee: these possess a special ability related to primary combat.
Examples: That lamer guy with the shurikens, Byakuya, Ikkaku
Ichigo's bankai possesses traits of both types, a kidou blast AND the melee speed boost skill.
On a sidenote, Koryaku and Ukitake form the classic FuuJin/RaiJin pairing, so their sword spirits being those two creatures wouldn't surprise me.
Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
how do your powers grow?
"With gloves and scars and silver stars
and swords that I shoot from a bow,
yes, swords that I shoot from a bow."
remember there are also zanpakutos that affect the surrounding environment like Tousens and Kiras. i think the elemental affiliations are just reflections of the persons soul just like Zangetsu and Zabimaru. its not that all zanpakutos have elements but instead the people have elemental similaritied and it shows in their zanpakuto i.e. Hitusgayas icy personality and Genryuusais blazing authoritarianism.
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

Ichigo's Bankai is seen as special because it enhances himself, rather than become a more powerful weapon persay. The theory is that Vaizard get enhancments to themselves, Shinigami get stronger weapons, and the Arrancar get their armor-like improvements; as I said, that is just a theory going around.
i think tousen's can be classified under "kidou". elemental zanpakutos could also be classified under "kidou" (like Rukia's).
i don't see how Kira's modifies the environment? if i recall correctly, it changes the weight of an object.
if we're talking about attributes, i think it's easier to just go back to the 4 categories that aizen stated: kidou, sword skill, hand-to-hand combat and stepping skill. zanpakutos could probably be classified under one of those 4 depending on which one(s) it boosts
You could say that Ichigo's falls under the category of "void", which in Japanese mythology pertains to Darkness, the Sky, the Heavens, and energy. This is supported by the black color of the Getsuuga Tenshou, the fact that the attack itself is a concentrated blast of energy, and his the color of his Bankai. Also the fact that the Getsuuga Tenshou is literally "Moonfang Skycharge" supports that idea.

It represents our ability to think and to communicate, as well as our creativity. It can also be associated with power, creativity, spontaneity, inventiveness, nuclear reactions.
Kū is of particular importance as the highest of the elements. In martial arts, particularly in fictional tales where the fighting discipline is blended with magic or the occult, one often invokes the power of the Void to connect to the quintessential creative energy of the world. A warrior properly attuned to the Void can sense his surrounding and act without thinking, and without using his physical senses.

Wabisuke - shikai ability is that it doubles the weight of everything it touches

Ichigo turned hollow/shinigami at the same time. He's in a class of his own which is probably why his power keeps increasing. He broke down the "barrier" that prevents people from passing a certain point and not getting any stronger.
