My Top 5 Anime Fire Users


I’m using the same rules like my list for top 5 water users, which are:

  1. I’m only going to include anime characters from anime/manga I’ve read or watched. Mainly because I would be familiar with their powers.
  2. I’m only going to include ONE character per series. This is difficult to do, because there are many strong characters in any given series, but I want some variety.
  3. I think it will be difficult to determine how each character on the list would fare against each other, so I going to focus how strong they are within their series. However, I will be thinking how they compare relative to each other.

[Note] This list and any others will focus on characters that MOSTLY or significantly use the element. In this case fire. What that would result in is having a list of characters that will have more that just the element in their abilities and I will be factoring these other abilities in as well.


5. Roy Mustang (FMA)

Colonel Mustang also known as the Flame Alchemist, is a State Alchemist from the anime series, Fullmetal Alchemist. He’s considered to be a hero in the series, hoping to become the next Fuhrer of Amestris. Mustang is a particularly skilled alchemist, focusing on fire based combat. Using custom made gloves that are created with ignition cloth. The gloves give off a spark when he snaps, allowing him to create flames with his alchemy. Water doesn’t render Roy’s alchemy useless. He’s able to “separate hydrogen atoms from the oxygen atoms in water molecules, isolating them into a highly combustible fuel and powerfully volatile oxidizer, respectively.”

Roy doesn’t really have any specific fire attacks, instead attacking with constant flames.

This allows him to become the element of fire and control flames. Ace could also use haki, haoshoku haki and busoshoku haki. Shanks described his haki a being “fiery in nature, to the point that Ace’s very presence was able to stop blizzards on an island for as long as he was there.”

Ace’s fire top abilities:

  • Kagero – shoots a stream of fire from the palm of his hand.
  • Hiken – Ace’s signature attack, he “turns his fist into flames and launches it as a column of fire at his target. This attack is so incredibly powerful that it is able to plow through several ships in one shot.”
  • Enkai – Ace amasses a large amount of flames around his body in preparation for an attack.
  • Dai Enkai: Entei – Ace’s ultimate technique. After creating great spiraling flames centered on his location before amassing it at a focused point (i.e. the palm of his hand), Ace then turns it into a gigantic fireball resembling the sun and hurls it at his opponent to try to obliterate them.

My Top 5 Anime water users

One of my goals for 2019 is to add more varied content to my blog. List have been popular for a while and of course they’re simple and easy posts to create. First I decided to make some rules:

  1. I’m only going to include anime characters from anime/manga I’ve read or watched. Mainly because I would be familiar with their powers.
  2. I’m only going to include ONE character per series. This is difficult to do, because there are many strong characters in any given series, but I want some variety.
  3. I think it will be difficult to determine how each character on the list would fare against each other, so I going to focus how strong they are within their series. However, I will be thinking how they compare relative to each other.

[Note] This list and any others will focus on characters that MOSTLY or significantly use the element. In this case water. What that would result in is having a list of characters that will have more that just the element in their abilities and I will be factoring these other abilities in as well.


Primal Kyogre

5. Kyogre (Pokemon)

Kyogre is a Water-type legendary Pokemon that was introduced during the third Generation of the Pokemon series. A massive Pokemon modeled after a whale. Kyogre possessed the ability to “expand the oceans” and has control over water and rain. Kyogre is a part of the “weather trio” along with Groudon and Rayquaza.

Kyogre was given a power up during the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. Called “Primal Reversion,” a Pokemon undergoes a transformation “restore a Pokemon’s true powers as the Pokémon absorbs the energy of nature to greatly increase its power.” Like most legendary Pokemon, Kyogre is capable of using many different types of TM’s. It has a powerful signature move called Origin Pulse. The move shoots multiple orbs and fire energy beams.

Why is Kyogre on this 5th on this list?

Despite his worldwide weather effects, Kyogre is largely limited in it’s ability. Very passive in nature Kyogre isn’t much of a fighter to begin with and it only really has one significant move, Origin Pulse.

Harribel vs Hitsugaya (Full Fight)

4. Tier Harribel (Bleach)

Harribel is the former 3rd Espada in Aizen’s army. She eventually becomes the ruler of Hueco Mundo. Like most Espada, Harribel has tremendous skill with a sword. She’s capable of holding her own against a captain-level Shinigami like Hitsugaya. She was even able to hold off a captain and two lieutenant-level Visored together.

She possessed incredible spiritual power and was highly perceptive during combat. Tier was considered to be a master tactician. Her hierro “harden skin” was strong enough to survive Hitsugaya’s attacks without much damage. She also has abilities typical to most Espada like Cero, Sonido and Descorrer.

When Harribel uses her Resurreccion, she releases her special ability. With her new abilities she is able to manipulate water. Her best water techniques are:

  • Hirviendo – Pointing her blade out, Harribel boils any form of water which comes close to it, including ice, and deflects it around her.
  • La Gota – Harribel can condense large amounts of water around her blade before firing it as a blast which resembles a shark tooth. She can fire multiple blasts in rapid succession with relative ease. The blasts strike with enough force to demolish houses.
  • Cascada – Harribel launches a rushing surge of water at her enemy. The torrent of water is large enough to cover several town blocks.

Why is Tier Harribel 4th on this list?

I my opinion Harribel is a far superior fighting tactician than the passive Kyogre. She has a larger variety of techniques as well. However, most of her abilities are shared with other Espada and she only has a handful of unique techniques.

Juvia vs Meredy

3. Juvia Lockser (Fairy Tail)

Juvia is a S-Class Mage from the Fairy Tail Guild. She can produce, control and manipulate water. She has a variety of different ways she can produce water, for example she can produce water blades that are strong enough to slice through rock or metal. She can also turn herself into water, allowing physical and magical attack pass through her without damaging her. Some of her best techniques are:

  • Water Lock – Juvia has the ability to materialize a large circular mass of water, and unlike the Water Dome, it contains no oxygen inside. This spell is used to capture enemies and incapacitate them by suffocation.
  • Sierra – A full body transformation resembling Water Body, used by Juvia in a state of strong agitation or other influencing emotion (e.g. jealousy or rage). Her strong emotions cause her full body transformation to heat up/boil. This is a short ranged attack which displays enormous, unpredictable speed.
  • Water-Make – a form of Molding Magic that lets Juvia create, or at the very least manipulate existing water. The scope of usage is not limited to just pure water, but also to things that contain it in large quantities, such as blood.

Why is Juvia 3rd on this list?

I didn’t list all the techniques she possess, her variety is far superior to Kyogre and Tier. While Kyogre can influence the seas, Juvia has more direct control over it. Unlike, Tier, Juvia can even turn herself into water and has defensive water abilities as well.

Only a small sample of his power

2. Tobirama Senju (Naruto)

Tobirama was considered one of the most powerful shinobi ever. He was considered the “fastest shinobi,” at least during his time. His chakra control was such that he could use difficult techniques with just one hand seal. Like most ninja, Tobirama had a large number of sill sets, from summoning techniques, barrier ninjutsu to the Shadow Clone Technique.

Tobirama was an “adept sensor.” He could “accurately detect the presence and location of targets in the surrounding area. He could even sense persons countries away, identify a target’s ancestry from their chakra signature, and even pinpoint a target’s exact location while blinded,” simply by touching his finger to the ground.

While, he could use all nature transformations he mastered Water Release. He could create large amounts of water without a water source. He could use high level water jutsu at any time. He could shoot high pressure water beams that could slice through his targets, create walls of water and cover an entire battlefield with water. Some of his best techniques were:

  • Flying Thunder God Technique – he could instantly teleport himself and/or other targets to any location marked with his seal. 
  • Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation – which revives the dead into immortal, regenerating bodies.
  • Mutually Multiplying Explosive Tags – to take advantage of the revived bodies’ natural advantages, using them in kamikaze-like attacks to create near-infinite chains of explosions on a target. He was said to use it whenever he needed to clear a map.

Why is Tobirama 2nd on this list?

To be honest Juvia has superior water abilities than Tobirama. What puts him ahead of her is his other abilities, Space-Time ninjutsu Flying Thunder God Technique is a powerful S-Rank technique. He has a number of techniques that surpass Juvia’s.

Jinbe vs Big Mom

1. Jinbe (One Piece)

Jinbe was the second captain of the Sun Pirates. A former Shichibukai he possessed massive strength. He is so far the strongest fishman seen in the One Piece series. Despite his large size he move quite fast as well. Jinbe also has impressive endurance, able to take a “baptizing” in boiling water.

He was able to hold his own against Big Mom, he even took a direct sword attack from her. While in water he becomes even more powerful, he an excellent swimmer and he’s able to “suppress” any fear he may have. He has mastered Fish-Man Karate, he’s a great strategists, he can communicate with fish life and has become skilled in Haki. His most powerful abilities are:

  • Fish-Man Karate – According to Jinbe, the secret of Fish-Man Karate is mastery of the water in the user’s direct vicinity, using its power to send powerful waves impacting the water within the opponent’s body. Because every creature has a high percentage of water in their body, the users of Fish-Man Karate are able to battle opponents that are usually highly resistant (if not immune) against blows and punches. 
  • Busoshoku Haki – is a form of Haki that allows the user to use their spirit to create, in essence, an invisible armor around themselves.
  • Buraikan – A secret technique of the Fish-Man Karate. Jinbe concentrates in one hand a large amount of water that he shoots at close range against his opponent. The impact is so strong that the water penetrates the opponent’s body and gets out from the other end. 
  • Gyojin Jiujitsu: Water Heart – Jinbe plunges into the sea. Using a jujitsu technique (unarmed martial art that originates in the bushi battle methods), Jinbe centralizes in both hands an enormous amount of water, to then transfer it to the surface. 

Why is Jinbe on the top of the list?

Simply put he possess all the qualities of the previous four. He has great water techniques, intelligence, physical strength, speed, varied types of techniques and he is able to do battle in water, under water and on land.

So do you agree? Is someone too high or too low? Think I should do more lists? What kind. Let me know what you think.

My Top 5 Anime fights of 2018

Goku vs Jiren (Dragon Ball Super)

Ultra Instinct Goku faces off against Jiren once again in the final episodes of Dragon Ball Super. In the conclusion of the Tournament of Power, Goku masters Ultra Instinct and is finally able to dominate Jiren. This forces Jiren to increase his own power. Goku is almost defeat twice, but manages to survive. Jiren attacks Goku’s friends and family sitting on the bleachers. Goku becomes enraged, finally defeating Jiren. However, Goku collapses from the strain of using Ultra Instinct.

Victorious by default, Jiren refuses to knock Goku off at first. He is reminded by the God Belmond of what’s at stake. He resigns himself to defeating Goku, but tells him that ” he
will always live on in his memories even as he ceases to exist.” Frieza saves Goku, with the previous thought dead Android 17 revealing he survived. Jiren becomes exhausted as he fights Frieza and 17. Then Goku recovers and joins the fray. Goku, Frieza and 17 team up to fight Jiren together. Goku and Frieza overpower Jiren, knocking him off.


Luffy vs Katakuri (One Piece)

Monkey D. Luffy and Charlotte Katakuri face off during the Whole Cake Island Arc in the Mirror World. This fight was a long one and largely saw Katakuri dominate Luffy. This is why the result of the match, Luffy’s win feels strange and unnecessary. One of One Piece’s most distinguish qualities is that the “main character” in this case Luffy doesn’t have to always win. Even in a later “fight” against Kiado, Luffy is easily defeated. So why did he win this fight?

Some fans wrongly suggested that this was typical plot armor, it wasn’t. However, I agree Luffy should have taken the lost on this. Regardless, we see Luffy reach another level as he introduces us to another form, Gear Fourth: Snakeman. The fight might be too repetitive and the victory was the wrong one. Regardless, it’s worth your time.


Meliodas vs Ten Commandments (7 Deadly Sins)

Meliodas is the “Sin of Wrath” of the Seven Deadly Sins, faces off against the Ten Commandments. I’ve hear about the manga Seven Deadly Sins and seen it promoted on Netflix, but I haven’t really decided to pick it up. This fight changed that. The title character Meliodas fights all ten of the commandments. Derieri, Drole, Estarossa, Fraudrin, Gloxinia, Grayroad, Melascula, Monspeet, Zeldris.

Meliodas first fights Drole and Gloxinia. They put up a good fight, but Meliodas takes the upper hand. However, the other Commandments arrive and dynamics of the fight change. Meliodas is ganged up on and is ultimately he is killed by Estarossa.


Naruto and Sasuke vs Momoshiki (Boruto)

This is a bit of a remake from the Boruto movie. Naruto and Sasuke join forces to fight Momoshiki. After disrupting the Chunin Exams to kill Naruto when they try remove to the Nine-tails chakra. The fight is one of the best of the Boruto/Naruto series. The animation is spectacular, as Naruto and Sasuke combine their abilities to maximum effect. The two prove to be too much for the Otsutsuki clan member.

This being the Boruto series, it’s up to him to defeat Momoshiki. Using his own rasengan aided by his father chakra, Sasuke and his mysterious eye, Boruto ends Momoshiki, but it’s just the being of the new spin off series. It’s easily one of the best battles of the 2018 season.


All Might vs All for One (My Hero Academia)

The finally fight of this list is the epic battle between old enemies, All Might and All for One. My Hero Academia featured many battles that could have ended up on this list but this one had no equal. When the League of Villains kidnap, Katsuki Bakugo, All Might is tasked with finding the taken student. During his rescue attempt he encounters his former nemesis. Backing the future of villainy, All for One aims to help them escape capture. He easily defeats the other top ten heroes, forcing All Might to engage.

All Might is still weaken from their previous battle that left him with permanent damage. Still their fight is able to create massive shock-waves, destroying the surrounding area. All Might even reverts to his skinny form, revealing to the world that he’s not as he once was. Encouraged to fight for the future heroes, All Might gathers what remains of his dwindling strength and hits All for One with a devastatingly powerful move, United States of Smash.
