Here are my 5 best fights and scene from Hanma Baki!

Baki Hanma vs Pickle

Pickle is a primitive man found perfectly preserved in a saline rock formation (hence he is ‘pickled’) with a Tyrannosaurus in a 190 million year old stratum. He was resuscitated by a scientist and named Pickle.

Pickle is around 2 meters tall and weighing around 130 kg, and his overwhelming physical abilities made him a strong enemy of Baki.
Many of Baki’s rivals also challenged Pickle but were defeated.

Famous scene, Baki’s Triceratops fist.

Next, I introduce is battle of Biscuit Oliva vs. Baki.
Oliva is also known as “Mr. Unchained. The reason for this is that he is a prisoner (inmate) usually incarcerated at the Arizona State Penitentiary in Arizona, USA, but is in a special position to freely enter and leave the said prison.
He is called Mr. Unchained because he is so monstrous that no one can lock him up and stop him.

Baki temporarily kidnaps the President of the United States and places him in the same prison just to fight with Oliva.
The highlight of the film is how Baki uses his fighting sense and martial arts skills against Oliva’s overwhelming power.

Katsumi Orochi vs Pickle

Next, is the battle between Katsumi Orochi and Pickel. Katsumi Orochi is the karate master in the baki series.
The most notable point is Katsumi Orochi’s “Mach Punch,” which he created for the fight against Pickel.

BakHanma vs Yujiro Hanma

Speaking of great fights, let’s not forget this one.
It is the father-son duel between Baki and Yujiro. The fight against Yujiro, the last boss for the main character Baki, is also a very exciting scene.

Baki’s challenge to Yujiro with everything he has cultivated in the story is very moving for readers who have witnessed his growth.

In particular, the incredible  battle scenes of Yujiro, who is called the strongest creature on earth, are just fascinating.

Retsu Kaiou vs Smoking Joe (Joe Cruiser)

The last one is from Retsu Kaiou’s boxing match as an extra.
Retsu lost his right leg in a fight with Pickel.
However, he did not give up fighting as a warrior even though he lost one of his legs, and he challenged the boxing world. He met Kaiser, a promoter, and was attracted to the strong opponent he had in store for him, so he moved to the United States.

In his debut fight in the U.S., he kicked out former world heavyweight champion Andrei Wharev.
In his match against Smoking Joe, Retsu struggled with his boxing, but he was able to beat him with his Chinese martial arts skills.
