One-on-one fights can be fun, but what if you don't want a whole episode or scene dedicated to just one person showing off? That's how you get Goku doing the same Kamehameha for three episodes. Sometimes what you want isn't a tight focus on a couple of characters, it's a melee that brings in a full cast. Another thing that great anime fight scenes need are high stakes. While a fight to the death isn't the only way to make viewers care about the outcome, it's a pretty effective method. 

Sometimes the most exciting thing is a straight up battle royale in which a huge group of characters get in on the fight. This can occur in a single arc or even an episode, as it does in Naruto and Kino's Journey, but it can also take up the entirety of the plot, as it does in Future Diary and Deadman Wonderland.

Which are the best battle royale anime? That's up to you.
