Not surprisingly, my choice for the best anime fight comes from the anime I chose as my favorite fighter anime back on Day 10.
I chose Goku and Vegeta’s first fight in Dragon Ball Z. While this battle may not have all the insane power ups of later fights in the series, I still hold this one in high regard. It was exciting, and I think it’s actually more enjoyable because neither Goku nor Vegeta had gone through their various power ups yet, so they had to rely on what powers they possessed at that time. And I liked how the battle increased in its intensity until it reached its crescendo. I also appreciate how Goku decides not to kill Vegeta at the end of it, even though Kuririn and others in the cast thought he should have. While it may not have been one of the flashier battles of the franchise, to me, it’s still very memorable and very well done.
