Naruto and Sasuke’s Final Fight Leaves Longtime Fans in Disbelief

The final battle between Naruto and Sasuke in Kishimoto’s manga serves as a pivotal moment in the story, evoking strong emotions in readers. It not only marks the climax of their long-standing rivalry, but also embodies an important theme of the series. As the Sage of Six Paths states, the past plays a crucial role in shaping the future, demonstrating the potential for even hatred to be transformed into love.

Therefore, the entire fight sequence between Naruto and Sasuke holds a special place in the hearts of almost every follower of Kishimoto’s manga series. As this moment holds great importance in the series, it is understandable for fans to have strong reactions when they perceive it to be disregarded.

Lately, a situation has emerged on platform X where a post has garnered considerable attention for what fans view as a lack of respect towards the ultimate showdown.

Comparing Naruto vs Sasuke to Lesser Anime Fights Sparks Anger

The main focus of the manga revolves around Sasuke’s journey to acquire the strength necessary to willingly enter the realm of darkness, isolating himself completely in order to absorb all the hatred and become the ultimate enemy of the shinobi world. This, he believed, would prevent the shinobi world from fragmenting.

Despite cutting many ties as a result, Sasuke still remained Naruto’s best friend. Naruto, who grew up alone and ostracized, refused to give up on Sasuke despite their rivalry and understood the feeling of loneliness.

Ultimately, Naruto was able to persuade Sasuke to give up his mission and instead, urged him to see the world through a different lens and empathize with the suffering of others. As a result, the intense showdown between the two rivals, where they fought until their chakra was depleted, and even engaged in a physical brawl, ultimately concluded with their reconciliation.

As a staple in the world of anime and manga, the Naruto vs Sasuke battle is a crucial addition to any compilation of epic final fights. While a recent list has rightfully acknowledged this battle, fans argue that the other final anime fights mentioned do not hold the same level of significance as the iconic Naruto vs Sasuke showdown.

A tweet that gained attention for its critique of the recently compiled list of top anime fight scenes in the past decade includes a reference to LeBron James, the renowned American basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers. The tweet suggests that, similarly to how LeBron stands out among his fellow athletes, the ultimate fight scene in Naruto exceeds the ones showcased in the rest of the series on the list.

The list of epic battles includes Saitama vs Boros in One Punch Man, Deku vs Shoto in My Hero Academia, Levi vs Beast Titan in Attack on Titan, and Mob vs Koyama in Mob Psycho 100. Here’s how fans have responded:

“No one touching Naruto vs sasuke level,”tweeted one fan of the series.

“Out of all of these I don’t think any of them even come close to Naruto vs. Sasuke. They’d been building up to this ultimate rematch ever since the first time they fought as kids and when they met at the 5 Kage summit,”opined another fan.

“This is actually a solid question.

I’d argue DS and MHA’s fights are important to the landscape of the anime fandom today, but stuff like the JoJo’s fight and Naruto vs. Sasuke were iconic because everyone was anticipating them.

There are just so many factors to consider,” one X user justified the importance of the final fight scene.

It is astonishing to note that several iconic battles from Dragon Ball and One Piece are not included in the list. However, fans of anime have reached a consensus that the match between DIO and Jotaro from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure should be included alongside the epic showdown of Naruto and Sasuke.

“Respect DIO vs Jotaro, legit one of the most iconic fights in manga history, especially in Japan,” wrote one X user.

As a result, the list has received a strong negative reaction from anime fans.

“they also should’ve excluded naruto vs sasuke to make it fair tbh, no bias just straight facts,” wrote a fan sarcastically.

“Snuck in tanjiro vs random demon number 55,” criticized an X user.

“how *** did that demon slayer bs sneak on here?

Are there really no better anime fights to add?”questioned another X user.

Declining Tanjiro’s fight against Rui demonstrates the significance of the emotional and philosophical elements in Naruto, as Demon Slayer is renowned for its stunning visuals and is considered one of the greatest anime ever created.
