    • Rahul Sar
      Rahul Sar 10 months ago this list was shit. Garra vs Lee is one of the greatest tournament fight in anime history and greatest in classic Naruto. Should deserve #1. Also most of Pokemon fights we're tournament fights as well, if u can include shit card games then include Ash vs pearl tournament battle.

    Yusuke vs Toguro should be #1 because the Dark Tournament is arguably the greatest tournament arc in shonen history. Being the final fight, it should be #1.
    Also, Lee vs Gaara is a better fight than Naruto vs Neji

    Pulkit and Aarush Gera 7 months ago

    This is possibly one of the most stupid list ive seen. I mean come on Midoriya vs Todoroki. That was one of the lamest battle ive seen. Even bakugo and uraraka was a better battle than that as far as tactical moves and everything s considered. And you dont have gaara vs rock lee. Thats the best anime fight ever but you have naruto vs neji, one which was again more of a plot point than anything else. Shame on you
