The Top 14 Anime Fights Of All Time, Ranked
14. Goku-Krillin
The skirmish between Goku and Krillin at the World Martial Arts tournament in Season 3 of “Dragon Ball” sets the bar for the franchise’s fights. It also reveals how much creator Akira Toriyama honed his fight choreography, significantly upping the speed and emotional investment in every movement.
13. Thorfinn-Thorkell
The second fight between Thorfinn and Thorkell runs longer than their initial duel, heightening the graphic violence as the uncle and nephew square off, culminating in Thorfinn breaking an arm and Thorkell losing an eye. The ugliest and most visceral fight on this list, the duel highlights that "Vinland Saga" is well done but may not be everyone's cup of tea.
12. Eren-Reiner
The fourth battle between the two friends is the highlight of “Attack on Titan” and showcases Eren’s superiority in hand-to-hand combat and creativity in outmaneuvering Reiner. As personal as fights in the series get, Eren and Reiner's bitter brawl may go too long but succinctly captures what the show is all about.
11. Father-everyone
The final battle with Father brings together all the surviving allies of "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood" for what is truly the most epic fight in either anime adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa's fantasy adventure. Perhaps a bit too overwhelming, the Elric brothers' last stand is still a tremendous, extended set piece.
10. Spike-Vincent
All of the fight sequences in “Cowboy Bebop” are tightly choreographed and accentuate how cool and competent Spike is, but its finale takes these sensibilities to another level, putting the viewer in the center of its hard-hitting brawl. This high-stakes confrontation perfectly embodies the show’s style, but its conclusion may be too clean.
