What are your favorite arena-type underground fighting tournaments in Anime.


Something similar to Mortal Kombat like:
(arena)

- YuYu Hakusho
- Flame of Recca
- Hunter X Hunter (Heaven's Arena)
- Dragon Ball Z



or maybe even something like:
(non-arena)

- Btooom!
- Fate/Stay Night
- Shaman King

I think there was one in Elemental Gelade but I think it was short and only lasted like 2 or 3 episodes.

I don't remember for sure but I think there was also something of the sort in Tsubasa Chronicle.

There was a fighting tournament (Actually like 2 or 3) in the Mahou Sensei Negima! manga.
Shonen mangas in general are filled with fighting tourneys.

Air Gear, Tenjou Tenge, Ikkitousen, Shadow Skill, Grappler Baki, and Air Master are some others that probably have some type of fighting tourney.

Ikkitousen Non -Arena


Synopsis
Seven schools are constantly 'at war' with each other, and the students within - both male and female - have become skilled fighters and constantly battle with rival schools. Their lives and fates are guided by strange jewels that contain the spirits and destinies of warriors from the Sangokushi period. One girl, Sonsaku Hakufu, has recently moved to Japan and is apparently destined to unite the schools as her counterpart united seven countries long ago. But, like all heroes, there is a darker side to her fate, and as always there is a constant struggle by those around her to break the chains of their own destinies and make their own lives.

While an underground fighting tournament does not actually happen in this show, the MC fought in them and that's why he is where he is in this story. The show where that happens is Chrome Shelled Regios.
