Name your favorite anime/manga/manhua/manhwa/OEL manga/you-get-the-idea fights(not a hundred, but gimme some stuff).

Drax the Legend, Captain of the Fist, The Starwalker, The Jade Slayer

Hmm, I'd love to make a Top 10 one day.....but anyways, off the top of my head....

1) Kenshiro vs Raoh (Fist of North Star Ist series anime)

Finally the one we've been waiting for. Although, now the animation is dated, the battle set the standard for all those DBZ 'main events'. It wasn't shy on the gore, it was primeval, and it was to the death. You just felt nervous because you didn't know who was gonna win. That's how final battles should be.

2) Ninja Scroll (All of them)

I can't pick one because it was all brilliant and some we've never seen before. Now you have these knockoffs like Afro Samurai and Samurai Champloo who try to capture the essence of those sword fights.

3) Street Fighter and King of Fighters animated (All of them)

I felt they should be grouped because they captured the roots of the game fighting-wise. None of that horrendous Fatal Fury anime where chi projections were out of control. Nor the DBZ buildup talking and puffing up like Hajime no Ippo , Bleach, and Baki the grappler.

4) Spike vs Viscious (Cowboy Bebop)

All of Spike's battles are so fluid and pretty and this one was the best. The way it was fought and the the way it ended was just perfect.

5) Hellsing (All of them)

I can't praise this series enough for their battle scenes. In an anime world saturated with kiddie battles like Naruto and Luffy, this is for Adults. The gore and the violence is just the icing but they spare the viewer from meaningless chatter & the buildup and just get down to it. The speed, the ferocity, and the brutality of it all make this one of the best I've seen. Plus Alucard's arrogance and lines just add to it. (when Alucard finds out there is still some 'competition' out there for him) "I'm glad to see that there is still madness in this world"
