List RulesVote up the anime battle cries that ruin the badass vibe you're obviously going for by being in an anime battle.

One of the oldest tropes in the book, the craziest anime attack names are also among the most enjoyable and strange anime powers in the genre. These impractical anime battle cries often last way too long, sometimes don't make any sense, and almost all just sound ridiculous saying out loud. There are classic attacks and even those you may have forgotten about, from magical techniques to sword play to good old bare knuckle moves. If you consider yourself a dedicated anime fan, you’ve definitely tried yelling out one of these crazy anime attacks a few times, or at the very least fantasized about it.

Impractical or not, the longest attack names in anime remain genre staples that always guarantee a reaction from both characters and viewers. Despite their unwieldy names, several attacks on this list cause catastrophic and totally badass result; taken out of context though, they're just plain weird. None of these are suitable for real-life circumstances, but they would certainly make conflicts a little more interesting. At the very least, a battle cry like "Nipple Lights!" would render an enemy breathless from laughter.

    'Bleach' - Ultimate Technique: Stunning Charlotte Chuhlhourne's Miracle Sweet Ultra-Funky Fantastic Dramatic Romantic Sadistic Erotic Exotic Athletic Guillotine Attack

    What's more impressive: the fact that this isn't Charlotte's only ultimate technique, or that his opponent gives him time to say the entire thing?

    'Rurouni Kenshin' - Amakakeru Ryu no Hirameki

    This secret technique is a powerful, two-step sword fighting move which would probably lose a lot of its grandeur if you didn't get it out right the first time.

    'One Piece' - Gomu Gomu No Jet Bazooka

    Luffy's charging technique flings his opponent far, far away, and he's probably the only person who could get away with saying this.
