While 2020 may not have been a great year in the real world, it was an amazing year for anime - especially if you love a good fight. For this list, we're shining a light on some of the greatest fights to come out of 2020. 

The best anime fights of 2020 appear in smash hit shows like Attack on Titan, Jujutsu Kaisen, My Hero Academia, and Black Clover, but they can also be found in lesser-known shows like Gleipnir, White Cat Legend, and Akudama Drive. But no matter what series these fights appeared in, they were all pretty incredible.

    Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is the highest-grossing film of all time in Japan, so it's no surprise that its fights are jaw-dropping. One standout battle is between Rengoku of the Hashira and Akaza of the Upper Moons. Since many American fans haven't been able to see this one yet, we won't go into too much detail, but we can't end the year without mentioning this legendary clash.

    Deku & Eri vs Overhaul - My Hero Academia

    The mission to rescue Eri from the Shie Hassaikai coalesces into a showdown between Deku and Overhaul. Multiple transformations of both Overahaul's body and the terrain push Deku to the brink, and the only way he gets through it is with help from Eri herself. Using her Rewind quirk to continuously heal Deku's wounds, she gives him the strength he needs to save the day.

    Not only did this fight contain the greatest face reveal since Kakashi in Naruto, it was also an incredible display of exactly what Gojo is capable of. Faced with a curse who can shoot lava from his head, he used his inventive Limitless technique - and showed us all what a long way Yuji has to go if he wants to catch up to his sensei.

    Everyone vs The Devil - Black Clover

    Though it may have had a rocky start, Black Clover has been knocking it out of the park this year with unforgettable moments. The moment when the humans and the elves come together to destroy Zagred, aka the Devil, is one of those. The whole fight is phenomenal, but watching Asta slice the Devil in two is just heart-stopping.
