List Rules Vote up the anime battle cries that ruin the badass vibe you're obviously going for by being in an anime battle.

One of the oldest tropes in the book, the craziest anime attack names are also among the most enjoyable and strange anime powers in the genre. These impractical anime battle cries often last way too long, sometimes don't make any sense, and almost all just sound ridiculous saying out loud. There are classic attacks and even those you may have forgotten about, from magical techniques to sword play to good old bare knuckle moves. If you consider yourself a dedicated anime fan, you’ve definitely tried yelling out one of these crazy anime attacks a few times, or at the very least fantasized about it.

Impractical or not, the longest attack names in anime remain genre staples that always guarantee a reaction from both characters and viewers. Despite their unwieldy names, several attacks on this list cause catastrophic and totally badass result; taken out of context though, they're just plain weird. None of these are suitable for real-life circumstances, but they would certainly make conflicts a little more interesting. At the very least, a battle cry like "Nipple Lights!" would render an enemy breathless from laughter.

What's more impressive: the fact that this isn't Charlotte's only ultimate technique, or that his opponent gives him time to say the entire thing?

'Fate/Stay Night' - Unlimited Blade Works Incantation


Shirou and Archer need to ensure they have enough time to say every word of this incantation: "I am the bone of my sword/ steel is my body and fire is my blood/I have created over a thousand blades/ Unknown to Death/Nor known to Life./Have withstood pain to create many weapons/Yet, those hands will never hold anything/So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works."

What enemy would even wait around for you to finish this?

Natsu's attack looks more like a giant spiral of fire than a blade, but it doesn't matter because it sounds really really cool.
