Saitama of One Punch Man is known for his ability to knock anybody out with a single punch. While his Serious Punch is definitely one of the strongest anime attacks out there, it's not the only powerful move. Actually, there are a ton of physical attacks that can wreak havoc - let's take a look at a few of the best. 

This list will be looking at attacks that require the users' physical strength, so Ainz's OP spells and Light Yagami's magical notebook won't be included, even though they're super cool. Pure energy attacks like Goku's Kamehameha or Hiei's Dragon of Darkness Flame are strong contenders, though.

Which of these attacks would you never want to end up on the wrong side of?

  • After achieving a form called Getsuga, Ichigo Kurosaki is able to use one of the most devastating attacks in the whole series, Mugetsu. Using Mugetsu, he can generate an enormous blade of black energy that obliterates everything in its path - except for incredibly strong enemies like Aizen, who he's only able to injure. Still, that injury forced Aizen to revert back to a previous evolutionary stage, which is how he was ultimately defeated. Heck yeah Mugetsu.

    In order to execute this incredible attack, Isaac Netero summons a statue of the Boddhisatva Guanyin. The statue follows his physical movements, hitting the enemy as Netero moves his body. Thanks to Netero's terrifying speed, he can do this thousands of times in 0.1 seconds.

    The United States Of Smash - 'My Hero Academia'

    There's more to All Might's legendary quirk than just a series of increasingly powerful punches, but that's mostly how he uses it. In his fight against All For One, his strength is almost completely gone, but this destructive, high-energy punch still manages to put All For One out of commission. Once Izuku pulls off this one it'll be a sight to behold.

  • Kamehameha is Goku's signature attack, so of course it has to be on here. It's essentially a gigantic blast of stored ki. It has a variety of forms, including the God Kamehameha that he learned in Dragon Ball Super, and the Father-Son Kamehameha that he pulls off with Gohan's help. In all its forms, it's an extraordinarily powerful attack.
