Zenitsu Agatsuma, is the cowardly member of the Demon Slayers Corps and Older Brother Spider Demon, is a spider demon with a human head and spider body. They battle on the Natagumo Mountain. In what is typical for Zenitsu he’s petrified of the spiders that swarm him. He runs up a tree to escape them. Poisoned, he’s in danger of becoming a spider human hybrid. He panics as his hair begins to fall out and passes out. Unconscious, Zenitsu goes into a trance. Using Thunder Breathing, he attacks Brother. The demon counters with “poison sputum,” poison shaped like a web. Zenitsu dodges the attack in mid-air.

The demon spiders surround Zenitsu. He finally enters his Thunderclap and Flash stance. It’s revealed that Zenitsu “only” has one technique. However, he has mastered this singular move. His electric aura explodes, destroying the surrounding spiders. Zenitsu strikes Brother with the speed and strength of a lighting bolt killing the demon.


38. All Might vs Nomu

All Might attacks Nomu with a barrage of fists. Designed to handle All Might’s power, Nomu isn’t phased. To damage the monster, All Might musts go beyond his normal level of power. Surpassing his limits, he and Nomu trade blows. With each hit (at incredible speed) they create shock-waves. Nomu is overwhelmed by All Might’s power. All Might defeats Nomu with a powerful Plus Ultra punch.


37. Levi vs Kenny

The initial battle between Levi and Kenny is more of an aerial assault. During the Uprising Arc, Kenny hires the Reeves Company to try and kidnap Eren and Historia. Kenny attacks Levi and Nifa, killing the later. Levi manages to avoid getting hit. Kenny is armed with ODM gear and two guns. Levi escapes, giving way to an amazing chase scene leaving Levi trapped in a tavern. However, he’s able to escape, despite the presence of Kenny’s squad.


36. Father vs Everyone

Some of my favorite kinds of battles is one vs many. Often this is the big bad verses all the heroes, however, sometimes it’s the reverse. In this case it’s the former. The Briggs Fortress soldiers, allies of Edward, join forces as they take on Father. Trying to exhaust his stone supply, they combine there attack efforts. However, Father’s barrier is too strong. When he lowers that barrier to attempt to absorb Greed’s stone, Edward, Armstrong and Izumi attack. Father loses control of his power, causing a massive explosion. Edward is now pinned to a bolder and his auto-mail right arm. With Edward in danger, Al convinces May to help him transmute his soul for Edward’s right arm. Enraged, Edward goes on a rampage delivering powerful blows against Father.


35. Gurren Lagann vs the Anti – Spirals

The Battle between the Gurren Lagann and Anti-Spiral is rather long. It features many transformations of Gurren Lagann as the mecha increases in size. The battle also has a great deal of symbolism, centered on human ascension. The Anti-Spirals hate the human race, and attempt to exterminate humans. The Anti- Spirals are beings that have abandoned spiral power, and stunted their own evolution. They are a collective unconscious that are attempting to avert a ” hypothetical event” called the ” Spiral Nemesis”. Gurren grows in its size at its final form, “Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann” reaches 52.8 billion light years in height. I feel it’s better to simply watch the battle than read my description of. Hope you enjoy watching it as I had.

Stain manages to activate his Quirk, paralyzing Midoriya like Tenya. Now also helpless, Midoriya and Iida are rescued by Shoto. What follows is an action pack and exciting battle between the new heroes and Stain. They work together to defeat Stain, rescuing another fallen hero.
