Sports or fight anime. I really like when the moves get so complicated that not even the spectators can see them, lose track of time, a kick might last over 15 seconds, and everything the MC no matter does no matter how simply it looks have a deeper meaning. Like he took a beating but someone else corrects the spectator because they are wrong and if you look carefully the rival is taking damage or some shit like that. Sometimes i only keep reading just for the half assed explanations.

>>135821559
Because good guy has to have mercy thus letting the bad guys live, however at a certain point bad guys are beyond saving and are desperate for the win so they go for the last chance attack on the protag's back, however the protag isn't a fucking idiot so he knows its going to happen but it was at least worth giving them the chance at salvation.

its just typical bad guys abusing mercy.

YOU FOOL

It's because it's the ultimate decisive victory. Not only did the hero wipe the floor with the villain but they managed not to lose their generic hero compassion in the process. And the villain lost so hard they don't even get an honorable fight to the death, just told to sit in the corner and think about what they did. And instead of leaving things inconclusive like that they have the villain prove they're never gonna get their shit together and the hero gets to axe them guiltlessly.

I'm indifferent towards it but it does seem like a pretty damn clear way to say "it's over".
>>
When a character beats another because of meticulous data collection, planning and preparation. When the character had plans, counter plans, counter counter plans - but not bullshit ones. Ones that can be explained as having an actual reason for.

It's even better if you can see the preparation happen.

Careful MCs that plan are my fetish. Too bad so many of them are "jump head first" and ass pull kind.

Any suggestions of this would be great.

Like 100 G gravity a magic sword, discovering the power within, gentic powers, it was that powerful already, he/she is the chosen one, the villain is cheating, somehow, or the trainer sees a almost imperceptible fault in the fighter stance which is the only thing keeping it from winning.

Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer had some excellent parts with this too.

Such a shame that there isn't more of this. It's easily as gripping as physical combat. I guess because it most accurately represents the "human spirit". Like it or not, we aren't greatly powerful physically. Our power and dominance come from our knowledge, training, planing, preparation.

He probably means flaws that aren't Gary Stu'd or plot armored away.

For example, the first character I thought of was Midoriya in BNHA, because for a while, he was crippling himself every time he used his ability.

But then Recovery Girl just healed him right away. Oh. Guess the whole crippling himself thing wasn't that big a deal.

Or flaws that aren't played as gags, like Death the Kidd's crippling obsession with symmetry. Real OCD can actually be pretty disabling.

I'm having trouble thinking of a character whose flaws actually consistently hinder them in any significant way.

world trigger does that kinda. in the latest arc its really all about planning to beat the other squads that are way better than the main characters. I know its kinda a spoiler but a few chapters back they showed off a few weapons that everyone calls useless since all they do is shoot slow moving projectiles that trap anyone who touches them with lead weights. they also showed the mc how to use webs to set up traps and the psychology of setting the webs in an area regardless if theres a trap connected to it or not.
>>
>>135824673
>she herself said she wouldn't keep doing it for him
At the time in the story that he's finally starting to gain control of the ability, and so he doesn't need it anymore anyway. That's awfully convenient timing.

Do you think we'll ever actually see the consequences of his own regen being used? What would that even look like?

Recovery Girl is just plot armor for Midoriya. We get to see him struggle with his ability, but Recovery Girl is a tool used by the author to keep him in the action while it's happening.

We haven't seen, and probably won't see, a long recovery arc where Midoriya breaks his leg or something and then has to spend half a year out of commission because Recovery Girl actually makes good on her promise. If it did happen, we would probably get a timeskip, and then have to watch Midoriya struggle to catch up with his classmates.

I'll take a shot in the dark and say it accelerates the aging process, since a "natural death" would be organ failure.

Another hypothesis would be a risk of cells being urged to keep repairing itself without dying off- i.e., cancer.
>>
>>135828219

I dont think itll ever touch on the consequences, at least not with Deku seeing as he only used it a few times.

He had a time limit for Full Cowl, correct? If he combines that with the intermittent activation from the logical ruse tests, he could get better mileage out of Full Cowl during prolonged fights.

That's what I mean, this doesn't happen as often as it should with a lot of tournament arcs. Some tend to gloss over every other characters that's not MC and antagonist(I'm looking at you Hero Academia). Some also do this >>135829232 way too much. Then there are those gimmic rounds that make no fucking sense and X character wins because they gain enough points doing some bull shit that was never explain in the beginning.

Bouts of pure, mindless rage from an otherwise calm, and gentle character never fails to make my dick diamonds.

Not anime related but the First Law series of books has a pretty neat character that does this well. Very well. Though in a lot of ways he's just a Westerners Guts

I agree. Overpowered characters like Saitama and the Macross pilots are great. Mary Sues are fine too, when they're side characters like Max.

Master Asia was acting like a fucking supervillain, what right does he have to pull the whole "but I loved you Domon" card? "Oh I'm so proud you're my student!" Fuck off old man.
>>
>>135838726
Simple.

An indication that despite what he did, he actually wanted to do good. His backstory shows the reason why he went along with the Devil Gundam.

Hell, even the Devil Gundam in G Gundam was something of a tragic villain. The ultimate machine that was supposed fix the bullshit that humanity caused with their wars via nanomachines, and then one douchebag tries to take over it, it gets dropped on earth so hard it turns evil, and tentacle-rapes Kyoji into becoming something of a pilot for itself.

Oh and it plays necromancer with the whole zombie mobile suits.

It lets the MC kill the bad guy without looking like he's executing a bound foe but only after the bad guy has been completely beaten which lets the reader feel relief at his triumph.
