I think i remember exactly what you are talking about.
But logically, KT has me stumped. I'm going to consider this a plot hole. I remember someone saying that Menos were hundreds of hollows merged into one. But then i also remember someone saying that the smaller hollows can live off the spiritrons in the air in hueco mundo...
A hollow hungers for spirit power from non-hollowish beings.
hollows can assimilate one another.
I can't figure this one out. If someone could place a manga page or something were it might say it, i would appreciate it.
Merged/consumed aren't exactly mutually exclusive, it could have just meant that they merged by eating each other (the normal hollows did seem to want to be eaten that time).
for hollow ichigo/anti-ichigo i think he might be a vastoorode, he is the inner hollow of the main character and vastoorodes are the strongest among the menos so why not?
OPINION: I'll say this - His inner hollow isn't a hollow. That simple. I believe ogihcI to represent his Hollow-side, but not nessissarily count as a hollow at this point.
Now, Ichigo in Full-Hollow form during his trial? I'd be willing to bet it was at least Espada level at that time. If you take into account that ogihcI was very distracted at the time, so the body was obviously going on instinct, I'd be willing to bet he breaks into the Vastoorode level, in that form.
Oh, and Screw Shounen rules. Even if they are strictly enforced.
What do you mean?

My bad, I just couldn't think of the middle catagory.
Oh, and I was just refering to it as a reference point,and Bleach uses "captain" as a meassurement plenty of times.
"Twice a captains reiatsu" "Captain level" "Those who reach a Captain's level" "He can't be that powerful, you'd have to be a Captain to use that."
hmmmm i dont really know if im saying something shitty but ichigos inner self - the one zanpaktuo shows him - the hollow within - the immense power at the begining of bleach theyre all one right? just a speculation but does the hollow within actually say hes a hollow? could it be that hes something else? dont know maybe his psycho fathers genes or something. maybe he aint even a hollow so why bother trying to see if hes anything else? hes an insane being who just powers up when pissed off. the "hollow" within agrees to help him as long as hes the one on top thats all. I dont think if itd be really a hollow that would be the case.

id agree with that adonai i just was thinking on the level that it was always within him... when did he actually die? i dont think he actually ever died... well i always get mixed up with live ichigo shingiami ichigo and hollow ichigo.
i dont think though that ichigo is a container for that many fucked up people. i dont really think its another aspect of zanpaktou either but ichigos other aspect. oh well just an opinion
