Who doesn't love a good fight scene? There are few things as exhilarating as seeing characters going toe-to-toe making a bloody mess of each other. Fights that get your testosterone pumping and push you to the edge of your seat are never not enjoyable.
However, while live-action fights can be awesome, no medium does it better than anime. The possibilities offered by animation offer up countless ways for characters to clash.
Though, this isn't about clashing, this is about beating.
Even more satisfying than a good fight scene is a good beatdown. Equal standing fights are great, but sometimes it's just nice to see a character get knocked into next year. Maybe it's just with one attack, a full-on flurry of hits, or a straight up massacre. Whatever the case may be, a beating is a beating.
To keep this list fresh, some genuinely great beatdowns might not be on here. That doesn't mean that they're lacking, but rather they've been excluded to make room for another more underrated one.
With all that done, it's time to get ready to rumble with some anime beatdowns that we'll never forget.
