There was a recent post up that was interesting to me that asked for characters that I wish wouldn't have died and others that I wish would die. From there I started thinking alot about some of the deaths that occur in animes and the EPIC fight scenes that go along with them.

Some times main characters in shows have to perish (good and bad ppl). I mean, for one, it just wouldnt seem real if everyone always survived everything; OR is the good guys always survived and the bad guys always perished. second, there are some cases where, in order for the main character to stand on their own, their "protection" needs to be eliminated otherwise it always leaves a opening for that person (teacher/sensei, badass protective best friend or associate) to step in and help the main character in all their fights.

So, that being said, even though some deaths are painful to see pass we all have to admit that some characters go down fighting and make a super BadAs* exit from the show.

What fights can yall think of that are just plain EPIC. Primarily Im curious for the ones that consist of main characters passing away (good or bad guys) but if you can think of any where the two people survive then thats just fine too. I think this should also include fights that bring out emotions from the watchers, if that makes sense. The fights that make you feel angry, sad, hyperactive at their badassness. But it doesnt have to be emotional fights once again. just badass in your own opinion for whatever reason.

Some of the ones on my mind are:

Cowboy Bebop final fight w/ spike soloing the syndicte headquarters



Naruto:

Several fights are epic in this show (and in some cases dragged out for wayyyy to long) some of them are

1. Jiraiya's fight against Pain

2. Narutos fight w/ orochimaru in the beginning of shippuden (Kyuubi lvl 4 PWNS)

3. Sasuke and Itachi's epic final battle of wits and skill



Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz Movie

the final showdown where Wing 0 is torn up from figthing the chinese kids (wu fang i think was his name) gundam and is blasting away at the enemy HQ.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (season 4 final episodes)

Fight with the firelord once Aing goes Avatar mode

Rurouni Kenshin : show and movies

both include some AWESOME fights in them. I think [imo] that kenshin was one of the best developed characters ever made in anime. hes slightly super-powered but at the same time so human and such a martyr taking everything on his own shoulders. Final bout with Shisio or w/e his name was. kenshin is already sp beat up and keeps pushing his own limitations. Final Fight in the movie Trust and Betrayal with the Ninja team who take his first wife by tricking her.

Id like to add something in here. The final battle kenshin faces in my opinion is against himself. If you have fully seen the entire series then you know that Kenshin is
But the final part of the last Ova movie when hes trying to get to kaoru even while so sick and with his memory going in and out is an amzing thing to watch. I think the fight with his own
to get to kaoru is only really emotional if you were one of the people to fall in love with his determination and character through watching the full anime show and the first OVA (trust & Betrayal).

Question:


Death Note

I know that this show doesnt have any big, very physical fights, but the overall show and especially the last parts after L dies are pretty much one big continuous fight. a battle of wits more than of brawn for sure. But still its epic how all the characters are so devoted to figuring out the identity of Kira that they put themselves in so much danger and in some cases Die in Epic and dramatized Ways (in a good way, not too corny).



There are some others that I can think of but cant remember atm, where the characters fight all out until the end, and then push themselves some more. Its almost sad seeing some characters push themselves so far past the point of "should be dead by that point"

Dragon Ball Z is dead given

It has fight scenes second to none(as far as anime goes) even though they are very,very long,the best example is the first Goku vs Vegeta fight and the rematch. There is also the fight between Vegeta and Android 18, the scene when 18 broke his arm was sweet. The battle cries are epic, you should see the death scenes like the Father-Son Kamehameha and how it abliterated Cell, the facial was classic. Also the scene where Gohan went SSJ2 was very touching , the BGM titled "Umnei no Hi" by Kageyama Hironoubu.

The struggle that Goku had to go through, losing his friends to death... And reviving them back to life... D: It's like having a friend move and adding them on facebook. xD What a terrible analogy.

Honestly, how can this thread even exist, without mentioning Simon and Kamina from tengen toppa gurren lagann.

Saito from Zero No Tsukaima, when he help defend against the opposing army.
Gintoki from Gintama, anytime he is serious he pretty much defines the word epic.

most epic fights i've seen are from DBZ. Naruto vs pain and jiraiya vs pain and itachi vs sasuke were epic, sakura vs kakuzu was entertaining, first time sakura was any use, hehe...bleach fights in the beginning were nice, but they get too stretched out now

What nobody mentioned Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann?
Fights: Everybody who''s watched knows that TTGL makes fighting an artwork. Awesome music, explosions - EVERYWHERE, shouting out special moves and gut-wrenching speeches keeps you on your toes.
Deaths:

Struggles: It was the whole Gurren Brigade vs the entire Universe and the theory of de-evolution. If that's not struggling I don't know what is.

everyone who has read the manga knows it's true. So many deaths,so many fights that use both smarts and brutality.
Jojo's is this thread! Even Gintama is getting in the stand action!

Baccano!
Ladd Russo versus Vino versus Chane Laforet. At the same time, Jaccuzzi Splot (Yes, that's his real name) is fighting the boss of the Lemures. And Firo and Maiza are up against Szilard Quates at the same time as well. Though some of these fights happened at different times, due to Baccano!'s Pulp Fiction style of storytelling, it's all happening at once.

And yes, TTGL practically owns the most epic death list. FS/N, CG and DN get an honourable mention as well.
