Anime: Top 10 moves

Date Published: Last Update:2015/05/08 Traditional Culture , , , , ,

Silly at times, but cool most of the time. Signature moves in Japanese anime are very common. You’ll find them in most animes that have a lot of fight scenes, and animes that feature sports. Here’s my top 10 favorite signature moves.

My Top 10 Favorite Signature Moves

10. Phantom Shot

Character: Tetsuya Kuroko
Anime: Kuroko no Basket

Description:

Have you ever played basketball or a fan of the sport? Lebron, Kobe, heck, maybe even Jordan wouldn’t stand a chance against the Phantom shot. It looks like a typical jump shot, but when you try to block it, the ball just slips through your hands.

9. Tezuka Zone

Character: Tezuka Kunimitsu
Anime: Prince of Tennis

Description:

Any professional tennis player would sure want to master this in real life, if ever this were possible. Tezuka zone enables the player to win the match even without taking a single step. Apparently, by applying a strong enough spin on the ball, the ball always comes back to where the player is after being hit by the opposing player.

8. Spirit Gun

Character: Yusuke Urameshi
Anime: YuYu Hakusho (known as Poltergeist Report/Ghost Fighter in some countries)

Description:

Believe in ghosts? Instead of sucking ghosts/demons in a vacuum cleaner like the ghost busters did, Yusuke kicks demon-ass by shooting spirit energy from his index finger like a gun.

7. Kuzuryūsen (Nine-Headed Dragon Flash)

Character: Himura Kenshin
Anime: Ruruoni Kenshin (Samurai X)

Description:

This technique allows the swordsman to strike all 9 vital spots simultaneously thereby making it impossible for the enemy to dodge or block. If you think this technique is the strongest move in Kenshin’s repertoire, think again. This is just a preparation to learn the ultimate technique in Kenshin’s fighting style.

6. Red Hawk

Character: Monkey D. Luffy
Anime: One Piece

Description:

Like Mr. Fantastic form the Fantastic 4, Luffy can extend his arms and legs to great distances. He could defeat practically anyone in a fight, but like any other anime, his enemies also get stronger and stronger. The Red Hawk looks like his typical punch, only a lot stronger and with flames in the arms to further the damage and to make the move look cooler.

5. Kanmaru

Character: Killua Zoldyck
Anime: Hunter x Hunter

Description:

Killua’s Kanmaru is equivalent to that of Marvel’s The Flash. Kanmaru is a technique developed by Killua to defeat one of his opponents in the Hunter x Hunter series. It gives Killua great speed over long distances and allows him to dodge any type of attack easily. If Superman is faster than a speeding bullet, then Killua is as fast as lightning.

4. Kage bunshin no jutsu

Character: Uzumaki Naruto
Anime: Naruto

Description:

If you’ve watched Naruto, then you’ve certainly seen this technique used over and over and over and over. It gets pretty boring because of its over use in the series, but if you think about it, this technique is really cool. Kage bunshin allows you to create multiple copies of yourself. And when the copies rejoin the original, the experiences, the knowledge learned, gets retained and becomes part of the original. You could do a lot of things with that. Imagine making a thousand copies, each copy studying one chapter of a subject. You could probably finish a 4 year college course in a month.

3. Senbonzakura Kageyoshi

Character: Kuchiki Byakuya
Anime: Bleach

Description:

Byakuya is one of my favorite characters in the Bleach series. His senbonzakura kageyoshi creates a thousand swords that could be used for defense and offense. He can disperse the swords into little shards to be used for attacking the enemy from all sides, or for protecting one’s self.

2. Tengai Shinsei

Character: Uchiha Madara
Anime: Naruto

Description:

Madara is the second Naruto character in this list. The Tengai Shinsei creates massive meteors in the sky that crash down on its enemies. Should the enemy posses enough power to destroy one meteor, Madara can create another meteor right on top of the other meteor with the same trajectory to effectively crush the enemy. For your information, the meteors are the size of the moon.

1. Kame Hame Ha

Character: Son Goku, and a lot more characters in the series
Anime: Dragonball Z

Description:

If you haven’t seen Dragonball, then go see it first. A lot of manga authors are big fans of this anime series. One of anime’s classics, people who watch anime are probably familiar with Goku’s signature Kame Hame Wave technique. The user gathers energy into the hands, and releases the energy to destroy the enemy. The size and power of the energy wave is dependent on the user using the technique.
