Hey, this is a cool idea for a thread. The ground rules make it so DBZ/Gods/Gurren Lagann won't be used and now we will need to think. Perfect! XD Lets see... To me, a team is all about chemistry and how effective they would operate at peak efficiency. I think that the five I have here would be a VERY deadly combination that would be extremely hard to beat, even if you take into account a team of all super-powered freaks that wouldn't operate as well as a cohesive group. XD

Main Attacker: Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail) - Not quite as strong as, say, Natsu or Erza, but he is a better team player. Natsu runs off and does his own thing WAY too many times and Erza is more of a major leader role and also goes in a little too much some times. Gray is most definitely the smart one of the main Fairy Tail attacking force of the main group. He is also not as adverse at listening to orders for an effective team strategy.


Support Role: Maka Albarn w/ Soul "Eater" Evans (Soul Eater) - Especially manga version. She is a HUGE battle buffer who can actually do some incredibly amazing things with her Soul Perception combined with Soul's abilities, and can fight all on her own if things go to hell. Read the manga for extra details, but it is pretty incredible. XD


The Assassin: Seta Soujiro (Rurouni Kenshin) - The fastest character in the whole series. Even Kenshin is slower. Hard to see and even harder to read. Good luck hitting him... if you can see hiim strike at all before you die, that is. XD It will be all about placement and keeping the enemies guard down with this one... which wouldn't be hard to do with how he presents himself.


Tactician: Schneizel el Britannia (Code Geass) - Unconventional, but well-founded. More level-headed than Lelouch on the battlefield. Does not fall prey to bouts of psychosis, mental breakdowns, depression, or bouts of cackling bloodlust. He is also just as clever (if not superior) to Lelouch in terms of masterful field general planning. He also actually tries to get more people out alive than Lelouch tends to do, even if he sees everything as a mandatory sacrifice, but he doesn't like to push the envelope if everything is hopeless and plans out everything much more carefully and with less recklessness. Would be the perfect leader for a group of fighters that all have their own quirks and who can use all their abilities to peak ability rather easily.


Secondary Attacker and Trump Card: Saber (Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night) - Someone that would never reveal her trump card till much later to throw off any enemies. When Excalibur DOES come out, well... who ever goes against it is going to be screwed over backwards.


I call this team Strategic Beatdown. Limited weaknesses and superior intellect through the ranks. All would work as a pretty good team, as well, with limited friction between them. This is how you win a war! With decent power combined with charisma and a lot of strategic genius!

Bravo good sir! Now I feel like I need to rethink some of my team and do a proper job that does this thread justice though.

Oooh, I really like this thread.

Overpowered Team (Don't even need a full 5)
1. Medaka Kurokami from Medaka Box.
2. Accelerator from A Certain Magical Index.
3. Hakaze Kusaribe from Blast of Tempest.

Normal Team
1. Death the Kid from Soul Eater. (DPS)

2. Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist. (DPS)

3. Wilhelmina Carmel from Shakugan no Shana. (DPS)

4. Misaka Mikoto from A Certain Scientific Railgun (DPS)

5. Allen Walker from D. Gray Man. (DPS)


Your opponent can't fight back if you kill them before they can attack. Thus, full zerk party!

Also, put Mustang at the front of this group to lead and there aren't any personalities, given a serious scenario, who would just do whatever they felt like. Wilhelmina is my second in command, with Death the Kid in the third spot.

Thanks. Had to wrack the brain to think of a team that I thought would mesh well together. Made a whole bunch of changes while typing out the list, too. lol. Can't just throw five really strong characters together. They would just end up in each others way and things get messy from there. XD

I havent seen many animes so this is the list from the ones i have seen.

My over powered team:
-Satan (Blue Exorcist)
-"Father" With God still inside him (Fullmetal Alchemist; Brotherhood)
- Someone from Steins:Gate who can send a text into the past to end the fight if it looks like we are going to lose. (Just started watching Steins Gate so I dont know much on how the texting works and all.)
-9 Tails (Naruto) screw Naruto i just want 9 Tails and his power ( Havent seen the series but pick up things from my brother who does)
-Female Titan (Attack on Titan) Just to round off the team and to give some sort of Physical fighting

My regular team;
-Lelouch (Code Geass) Leader and strategist
-Roy mustang (FMA: Brotherhood) Damage. He can kill someone who is "Immortal" so why not
-Victorique (Gosick) She can solve any problem with her Wellspring of Knowledge. Can help Lelouch with strategics
-Rin Okumura (Blue Exorcist) Damage/ Front Lines. Has the power of satan and a badass blue burning sword.
- Kamina (Gurren Laggan) He can keep a team together no matter what.

That team isn't really overpowered

I don't know about Medaka, never bothered watching it / reading it but,

Kamijo Toma counters Accelerator
Fuwa Aika counters Hakaze... big time.

Let's just say that Medaka is the queen, while Hakaze and Accelerator are just knights.

As for your counters, I suppose I would just have to have Medaka fight Toma and Accelerator fight Aika. That's why it's a team. They cover each other's weaknesses.

Anywho, Medaka's ability is learn and perfect the ability of anyone she encounters, so she's the centerpiece of the team. Accelerator and Hakaze are just supports.

Also Toma 'counters' Accellerator primarily through a nice thick overpowering layer of plot armor.

For these kinds of comparisons you should always ignore protagonists winning out of their league, you can generally tell when a main character is supposed to be out of scale (ala Medaka), otherwise it's just the hamhanded way they try to have both 'threats' and also still have the good guy win (also known as Batman Syndrome)

Very true. They actually did quite a good job balancing Medaka being out of scale and having threats by leaving some time between the "learning" and "perfecting" of other people's skills.

And so true, about Toma. Really, Toma shouldn't ever even get close enough to Accelerator to punch him.

but that's BECAUSE of Toma's power. he nullified accelerator's power, because that's what his power does. it nullifies all powers, both esper and magical.. he can even nullify the grace of God, apparently, which left Index naked until she could fix her robe a more "traditional" way...

We're admittedly losing focus here, but the show clearly demonstrated that toma's power doesn't stop a train being dropped on him. He's not Bink (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magicians_of_Xanth#Bink).

A whole bunch of bad decisions were made and unlikely things happened, for the specific reason that the good guy had to win.

~~~

I guess it really is an aside though, in the argument above (And I'm prone to like Iblessall's team), the team kind of trumps all counters.

Medaka can easily deal with someone like Toma (without using any powers for him to negate), and anyone else by default can't fight Accelllerator once he realizes that he's touching the air around him. Plus then Medaka would have seen accel and Toma in action, and then she has both of their abilities as well ><

I"ll have Char take point of course, he's one of the best Pilots we got!

Of course, for the backup I'll take the Black Tri Stars!

For the Leadership Role however, the only man capable of beating Char is his teacher, the might Ramba Ral!
Ramba Ral seriously just took charge of the show, Gundam was just better with him in there.



That's all for the Mobile Suit Team!

I can't even make a 5 Not-Mobile suit list.

I have to have Guts and Saber on the team, but do I want red or blue saber? What about Saber Alter?
Why does every post involving the two of them turn into a Fanfiction for me?
