GAAHH!! THE LIGHT…IT BURNS!!
No Internet problems this time around, folks. I’ve just been marathoning a crap ton of anime I’ve been meaning to watch for ages. I’ve been stuck in front of my laptop screen for ages and feel like I’m coming out of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber or something! Is Trump still president?
-Checks online.- Yup…he still is…DANG IT!!
Anyways, thought the best way to get back into the swing of typing again would be a Top 6 list. Also because I’m lazy. XD So, here are the Top 6 Most Overpowered Moves in Anime history, at least in my opinion.
#6 The Amakakeru Ryu no Hirameki ( Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin)
With a name as long and complicated as that, how could this move not be overpowered?! Kenshin was already an inhuman monster with all his other “basic” sword techniques, but he entered the realm of being godlike when he was taught the ultimate attack of the Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu! This uber technique is a literal One Hit Knock Out move as it attacks every single vital area of the body in the blink of an eye, leaving the opponent literally no chance to counter. Even when Shishio managed to block it, the force from the attack literally created a mini black hole and sucked him into it! Talk about getting wriggity wriggity wrecked!!
#5 Shadow Clone Jutsu (Naruto from Naruto)
Fighting techniques that create copies of the user aren’t anything new when it comes to most shonen battle anime. Heck, the first time I even came across such a move was in Dragonball when Tien used it. However, the difference between the Multi-Form technique and the Shadow Clone Jutsu is that while the former lowers the user’s power significantly, the latter doesn’t. As in, Naruto can literally create hundreds upon thousands of clones and each one will be as strong as the original.
How is that Naruto ever lost a battle again? He literally can create a bazillion copies of himself and each one of them can tap into a demonic fox that pwned his entire village ages ago! Again I ask: HOW DID HE EVER LOSE A FIGHT?!
#4 Exodia (Yugi from YuGiOh)
Might seem weird to have a card game on a list of overpowered moves, but anyone who’s been on the receiving end of Exodia knows he more than deserves to be here! It’s one thing to possess a trump card, but it’s a whole different deal to have a skill set that allows you to use said trump card any time you so desire!!
Your opponent just summoned the Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon? Exodia ends all!!
They just summoned the Dark Magician of Chaos? Exodia ends all!!
Did they just manage to get all of the Egyptian God cards on the field?! EXODIA MUTHALUVIN ENDS ALL!!
And people wonder why it was banned from tournaments ages ago. Sheesh!!
#3 The Zone ( Aomine and Kagami from Kuroko no Basuke)
Anyone remember the game NBA Jam? That crazy, over the top arcade basketball game where, if you score like 3-4 baskets in a row, your player basically becomes Michael Jordan on steroids? Yeah…that’s basically what The Zone is. Now the show may say that it can’t really be controlled, but I say bollocks to that crap! From what I saw both Kagami and Aomine were capable of basically going Super Saiyan any time they wanted on the court.
Again, the show tries to make this move seem like a double-edged sword as it severely drains the user’s stamina. And again I call bollocks!! This is basketball we’re talking about, folks! Aomine is capable of scoring 70 points by himself without the need of The Zone! Even if he passes out right on the court after using it, his team would not doubt be up by like 50 by the 2nd quarter!! Double-edged sword indeed!!
# 2 The Wind Tunnel (Miroku from Inuyasha)
Let me see if I have this right.
This guy, Miroku, is literally walking around with a miniature black hole in his right hand that can suck up anything in the world into its dark, cold abyss? Like….a literal black hole…from which no light or life can escape….and he barely ever uses it?
Pardon me while I facepalm.
Just like with The Zone, the creators of Inuyasha try “explain” away the OPness of this attack by saying that the more he uses it, the more it will consume and eventually kill him. Also there’s some nonsense about poison bees or something…I can’t remember. Regardless, I just have one question: Why can’t he just use it when Naraku is around?! I mean, the others can take out the killer bees or what not and Miroku can be all like:
A 90 episode anime series that could’ve only been 30+ if the creators had only pulled the trigger on this OP attack! So much unneeded melodrama could’ve been skipped if they had just did exactly what I just said!
#1 The Solar Flare (Every friggin body from the Dragon Ball franchise)
I’ve said it once…I’ve said it twice…and I’ll keep saying it until you people listen!! I will literally climb the mountain Sylvester Stallone climbed in Rocky 4 and scream it at the top of my lungs: The Solar Flare is beyond overpowered!! How many of you are getting annoyed just by looking at gifs of that move? Imagine what it felt like for Vegeta, Goku, Piccolo, Android 18 and everyone else who fell victim to this move?!
The Kamehameha, the Galick Gun, The Destructo Disk, The Big Bang…heck, The Big Bang Kamehameha can all be blocked or stopped if the opponent is strong enough. The Solar Flare, on the other hand, has NEVER been countered!! It has a 100% effective usage rate! Which, of course, leads to me to ask why it wasn’t used more often! So many lives would’ve been saved if they just blinded the bad guy and blasted him to kingdom come! Krillin himself could’ve killed off Freeza if he had just thrown one Destructo Disk at him after he blinded the guy! But nope…all he did was run away. What…an…idiot…
No of any other moves/techniques that were truly overpowered? Let me know down in the comments below. I’m NEETaku and that was Just….My 2 Cents!
