Sometimes, what determines the outcome of a battle is not physical strength, but intelligence. For this list, we're counting down some of the best battles of wits in anime, because it's great to see characters' flexing their brainpower.
Many of the best mind games in anime appear in shows that center around the concept - pretty much every conflict in Akagi and No Game No Life are resolved this way. But they also appear in places that you might not expect them to, like in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and Bleach. Wherever they crop up, these battles are sure to make you think, and entertain you at the same time.
