The Greatest 2 Vs. 1 Anime Fights of All Time
The best shonen anime are known for featuring exhilarating one-on-one battles, but 2 vs. 1 anime fights take the action to a whole new level. Whenever anime characters team up, they form a bond that runs deep, as their dual survival is dependent on cooperation. Sometimes, 2 on 1 anime fights can turn enemies into friends, as proven by Goku and Frieza's unbelievable tag-team in Dragon Ball Super.
In other cases, characters can work together to strengthen an existing connection, like when sisters Ryuko and Satsuki overthrow their tyrannical mother in Kill la Kill. Double-team fights present twice the opportunity for cool techniques and epic one-liners, allowing them to easily outshine any and all solo brawls.

With the use of Todo's Boogie Woogie technique and Itadori's Black Flash, these two are able to easily overpower Hanami. It's an amazing fight that features a new power-up for Itadori, incredible animation, and crazy fun action.
