List Rules Hand to hand brawls that involved minimal super powers like energy blasts.

While the medium has seen its fair share of badass sword fights, gun battles, and energy beam showdowns, anime fist fights are always the most exciting brawls, since pretty much every fighter enters with the same tools. From the stunning fisticuffs seen in Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, to the brutal boxing of Hajime no Ippo, the best anime hand to hand fights manage to feel larger than life, especially when characters possess superhuman strength. While it's cool to see Goku spend three weeks conjuring up a Spirit Bomb, nothing beats watching him duke it out with Tien Shinhan using only his bare hands. Even if neither fighter possesses supernatural powers, the battles can still seem out of this world.
