re-watching bleach and remembered something that i used to think about a lot when it was revealed that ikkaku doesnt like showing his bankai. so what's up with ikkaku losing to ichigo when they first came to the spirit world? didnt he have bankai at this point? he would have rekt ichigo with his bankai in an instant

Ikkaku would have rather died than have his bankai witnessed, a point that nearly comes true in battle when he gets railed and Komamura (or Iba, can't remember) b*tches him out for his lack of willingness to do what needed to be done over some idiot notion of pride.

Didn't he say he hates using the Bankai because he does not want to be looked down on by the Captain? So, pretty much his pride won't allow him to resort to using it lest it makes him look like less of a skilled warrior in battle relying on its strength instead of his own.

It was the fact that he was 3rd behind the captain & he wanted to be in Kenpachi's squad & if the officers knew he had bankai, he would be promoted since Kenpachi already had a vice captain.

This is actually one of the lesser offenses for an anime filled with such bullshit logic most of the time. At least they explained his reluctance to use the Bankai later on in the story.
