It's that time. Post the best fight from its respective series.
Definitely among the top shonen fights of all time
>The despair when Shishio deflects the Amakekru Ryuno Hirameki
>"The battojutsu of Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu..."
>"... Are all based on two-step attacks!"
Gon vs pitou is probably the best anime fight I've ever seen, and probably my favorite anime scene of all time. The manga scene was good but the anime adapted it in the best way possible.
Also, if you've never seen hxh, please don't spoil yourself by watching this fight.
yeah finding a new gimmick to fight every new logia would have been so much better
the big OP threads are fun because dummies like you get laughed at relentlessly
definitely show up next thursday's thread for sure
>being this wrong over the internet
I liked Chrollo vs Hisoka a lotbut this fight was the apotheosis of HxH
Pic related or Goku vs Piccolo Jr
Let's face it, pretty much all of Ichi's fights were a one sided massacre. Kakihara's one true fight was both a bit more balanced and, most of all, completely delirious.
>Gash becomes a skeltal
>gets healed by Danni boi
desu I was kinda let down when Clear got introduced all of a sudden, thought it was going to be more of a battle royale type of end but holy shit was I wrong.
Shit was so cash
I'd argue the fight against Zeon overall is better, the Golden Book is really the only truly exceptional part of that fight
Vegeta no Densetsu was the greatest thing ever
Yeah Zeon was a great fight, still golden book is the hypest IMO.
I'm a huge crocodile fan, I love his laugh, his power, how hes chaotic neutral.
But c'mon man. It really wasn't that good. BLOOD FISTS BEATS A FUCKING SANDMAN?
I would say this or Guy vs Madara.
>inb4 Rock Lee vs Gaara
>inb4 Kakashi vs Obito
>inb4 Pain vs Naruto
>inb4 Sasuke vs Itachi
>inb4 Minato vs Tobi
>inb4 any Nardo vs Sausage fight
Pic related is my personal favorite.
One of the best fights I've ever seen. Only Pride & Kimblee vs Alphonse and Ed & Everyone Else vs Pride came close to this masterpiece.
Bones did an even better job as well.
this manga deserves no praise, but those first 150~ chapters do.
Tough to pick one desu. They are almost all excellent.
>Peco vs Kong (1st time)
>Smile vs Kong
>Sakuma vs Peco
>Dragon vs Peco
>Dragon vs Kong
>Smile vs Butterfly Joe
>Smile vs Peco
I'll go left field with this one and say Smile vs Sakuma. Simple, quick, and brutal.
>Why is it you? Why? I worked hard! Ten times... no, a hundred, a thousand times harder than you! So that Kazama would acknowledge me! So that I'd beat Peco! I thought of nothing but table tennis from morning til night! I've given my everything to table tennis! So why...
70+ chapter build up, the conclusion arc to the only redeemable character in the series,
being honest I want Elfen Lied Ultimate just to see it animated.
Love Crocodile, dude has a dank design and had a great arc, but his fight was bullshit and it happened a bit too soon.
Lucci vs Luffy was the shit, hell Lucci's design WAS shit but his fight was fantastic and really felt like the only fight Luffy was absolutely desperate to win.
As usual OP is a wrong faggot
Young series so there aren't that many to choose from but god damn
Everything about it was perfect. Togoro's impossible, daunting strength, the clash of Togoro and Genkai's ideals, and Yusuke finally growing up a little and listening to everyone who cared about him. It was the golden standard of shounen battle.
And then chapter black happened.
I don't know why people are praising Luffy vs Lucci so much. It was definitely anime standard.
Villain: You will lose, I am stronger than you. My attack will kill you.
Hero: I must fight onward. For the sake of my friends, I must withstand his attacks.
Villain: Nani? M-masaka! He should be dead!
Then the hero punches harder and wins.
I am genuinely and honestly curious.
>Hero: I must fight onward. For the sake of my friends, I must withstand his attacks.
It was more of the sake of everyone and himself, if he dropped, they all die and everything was for nothing. It was something he absolutely had to do. Him fighting Crocodile the stakes were lower, even if he lost it still would've rained like a minute or two and everyone would've stopped fighting.
>Then the hero punches harder and wins.
He didn't punch harder he just punched more, same shit with Crocodile. It was already shown that a single Jet Bullet could hurt Lucci, so a fuck ton of them would do the trick, here he just kept punching and punching desperately in one direction as a last resort until he fell and was basically paralyzed.
One Piece doesn't have many top tier fights but with the writing around the entire saga, the stakes, and the shit Luffy and Lucci were pulling out made it a tense and great moment.
It was the only fight in the series where the villain was equal to Luffy in terms of strength.
Fight fight best best.
Agreed. Don't know why people call it a "fight". I like the scene, sure; and, it's certainly a defining moment of the novel, but it's only a fight in the broadest possible definition of the word.
Nah, anon. It was pic related
>Dorian Kaioh uses hypnosis on Doppo
>It doesn't work because Doppo's knowledge of martial arts is so extensive, he had already predicted the entire fight subconsciously
That whole part was a bit too surreal for my tastes. Not in the sense of "these moves are unrealistic", but more of a "how are there no consequences" thing. They got like 1,000 people to escort him there, and then they all just go home. And when Suedo just falls off the rollercoaster, nobody goes to help him or see if he's alive. And that random doctor follows Katsumi/Katou from the hospital without telling anybody what's going on, instead of calling the cops.
Dunno, it was just all too weird.
Almost nothing in Baki makes sense, though. The plot bends over backwards to allow zany fight situations (more than other shonen), and all real-life consequences are handwaved
One instant Oliva is walking down a corridor, sees a judo dojo inside the installation, Shibukawa is the sensei and the police chief already had a judo gi fit for Oliva because he "thought something like this would happen". Cue five chapters of "Oliva does judo"
I think Luffy and Lucci's fight is actually overrated somewhat. Compared to the other fights during Tower of Law, there's much less interesting things happening, and their isn't a direct confrontation of Luffy and Lucci's ideals. The fight also suffers from having no clear endpoint, instead blurring into the sequence where the crew is rushed on the bridge, which is easily one of the weakest parts of Water 7.
Yu Yu Hakusho was complete bullshit.
I remember reading a chapter where Yusuke attacked some enemy fortress and fired off like 50 spirit gun blasts including a full fist shotgun blast then a few chapters later he explains how he can only fire 5 of them in a day.
I hate chakra mechas and nukes too but in the anime it's the fight they put the most effort in a long time. At least the hand-to-hand parts were fun because for once they didn't make them off-model, stretchy and with no shading like the other "well animated" fights like Obito vs Kakashi.
The Clear fight was pretty good, but Clear himself was just a massive plot device used to kill off all the plot important characters. The last arc was lackluster when compared to the earlier ones. However, pic related is still one of my favorite fight of the series.
That aside, anything with Bao Zakeruga is the hypest shit.
I prefered Zeon's fight to Clears because Zeon was hyped up from the beginning, while Clear just shows up out of nowhere.
This page is what convinced me to read Toriko. Toriko vs Starjun and Heavenly Kings vs Bambina were good too.
The only non-shit moment of the second half
>Shirou vs Kotomine in Heaven's Feel, with Shirou vs Artoria in Sparks Liner High and Shirou vs Archer in UBW coming close behind.
>Artoria vs Diarmuid
>Bazett vs Cu
>Emiya vs Cu&Rin or Tamamo vs Saver&Twice
>Gilgamesh vs Kiara or Emiya vs Karna
>Literally all the fights involving Gawain or Karna
>Mordred's last stand or Achilles vs Atalanta
>Arthur & Arash vs Ozzy or Arthur ragemoding through Paracelsus, Serenity, Manaka, and the Beast one after another
>(You) and Mashu vs Goetia, Aggravain vs Lancelot, or basically the entirety of the final showdown in America
That fight was awesome. Sugawara dominated the entire fight but Ryo kept coming for more.
I would also say the battle between the Judoka and the black belt is one of the best in Shamo.
Not translated yet, but it's still my favorite because of how utterly brutal it is.
Everyone agrees that Clear is the worst villain in the worst arc but the golden book is pure fanservice, it's hard not to love. It also has some of the best double page spreads in the series. Although
Hippois definitely my second favorite fight.
A fight so good it managed to carry the hype of Bleach well after it should have died.
Original curse mark vs tailed chakra was amazing.
Your post is amazing
Itachi vs sasuke final was great
Rock Lee vs Gaara has aged TERRIBLY - go rewatch it, 75% of the fight is talking and its so stretched out.
Best fight is the final Meruem V Komugi
Will you hold my hand?
i'm super fucking ass mad that this fight was off screen
it probably wasn't even a fight because brooks not nearly close enough in strength to big mum
I agree with you, but I was also very fond of pic related.
>Crocodile was the one stopping it from raining using his fruit
Where the fuck did you pull that bullshit from?
Wasn't he using this shit?
Guts was just unstoppable in this fight. Fighting airborne took his level of badassery even higher.
Yes it did. It's some lame psuedo SSJ copypasta, which is bad in its own right, but when you cant see the fight because it just looks like the characters keep teleporting, you know its bad. DBZ is a bad influence, and withoit DBZ, then maybe OP, Naruto and even Bleach might've turned out well
Why no love for Kakashi & team 10 vs Hidan and Kakuzu. It had the perfect mix of action, pacing, strategy, soundtracks. Didn't really drag on, felt natural, and it was a good team battle where especially Hidan and Kakuzu used each others abilities to their advantage
Shamo is worth reading for this fight alone.
This. Absolute masterpiece. The fact that Bradley was finally free to fight and die for himself, everything about it, the atmosphere and emotions. FMA wasn't generally great when it came to fights but only a few come close to that one.
It's the whole no canon color deal.
Araki colors what he feels like at the moment. He has done white for too, ofc.
