Author's note: I know, crossovers are chancy. Finally, Shishio: He managed to overhelm Kenshin. Well, good luck with that, Kenshin, but we're here to examine the six best fighters seen in the series, and what makes them so powerful! He's is an interesting mentor to our protagonist; he lends a hand when needed, but is sarcastic and verbally while doing so. If you wish to know more, watch the anime. It was stated by Watsuki himself that, if Kenshin and Saito were to have a rematch, Saito would win. Although being more 'dark and sad' and having a different drawing, I believe it's truly a masterpiece, perhaps even better than the anime.
Aoshi who also was injured, like Saito, from before the contest not only lasted longer, but recognized that his best chance was to stall for time rather than attack an opponent he could not beat. He bears a calculating nature that shows itself in his high observational intelligence, a reticence to say more than is necessary and a demeanor that rarely shows emotion. He's the one who hired Jin-E, so the dozens of police officers killed was his doing, and he later has the water supply to the village poisoned so he could lure out Megumi, which in turn nearly kills a number of people. He did mention in his side-panel notes in the manga that he wondered if he did manage to find a way to work that in, however. Despite holding contempt for Kenshin's philosophy, Saitou even refused their planned final duel partially out of respect for Kenshin because he sacrificed so much for justice and due to his virtuous personality. See below for a quick analysis of his abilities compared to Shishio's. But I think if Saito and Aoshi were to fight each other, it would all boil down to tactics and strategy, or maybe the knowledge and insight into the other's techniques.
Even after Kenshin crippled his hands, he was still able to use underhanded tactics during his next appearance, though the seeds of this trope were already planted as he was comically shown up by Sanosuke. As Sweglord said He is shown to be holding back, and he is mentally all over the map, going as far as to have a complete breakdown. Saito probably had the psychological advantage. Aoshi I hope you know who Enishi is. How is forgetting about the one person I care about the most in the entire world supposed to ever make me happy? Soon after, Kanryu appears with a Gatling gun with the intention to kill everyone in the room.
To provide a better website experience, reelrundown. Portrayed by: Koji Kikkawa Live Action A hitokiri during the Revolution, and there is evidence he continued killing people well after the end of the Revolution. It can be beaten by watching for the moment the user attempts to strike. Fuji's monstrous size came with: a tremendous durability b tremendous strength. Aoshi and Misao married after the events of the Rurouni Kenshin series as stated by the author, Nobuhiro Watsuki in his appearance at Comic Con 2006.
To conclude, as stated below by Rag Del, I think Okita Soji derves a mention as well. His fight with Kenshin ends with every finger on his left hand broken. Luckily, she escapes in the ensuing chaos. Personality At first glance, Shinomori Aoshi appears cold and emotionless. Aoshi effortlessly dominates Kenshin earlier in the fight with his tremendous jump in swordsmanship, but Kenshin finally unveils the truth behind what is truly the strongest: the will to live.
For Yatsume Mumyoi, see The Six Comrades. However, it should be noted that Aoshi was severely weakened by Kenshin's ōgi first. In addition to anime, I also love tokusatsu, video games, music, and martial arts. Wields a kusarigama and hidden chains. Saito's ougi was completely shat on by Shishio, but Shishio has this plot powered strength given to him to be immune to any technique he already saw. In my humble opinion, his bout with Kenshin that was disrupted would definitely have gone to Kenshin that hit on Saito's neck would have been fatal with a real sword if he hadn't been handicapped with a reverse blade sword, and Saito didn't do too well against Shishio even with two surprise attacks.
And although incomplete when compared to the Kenshin who masters the final attack, the Kenshin during the revolution appears more dangerous as he would probably kill everyone who is in his way. He also told her that the drug lord would likely torture her until she made the opium again, as he knew she would rather die than do that. Now only does he prove too much for Kenshin without his Battousai persona, he also proved stronger than any of Kenshin's subsequent opponents until Saito appeared. Senkaku was an unimportant henchmen who didn't know anything valuable, so he was spared any orders to be executed after his escape. From my thinking, he's not quite as strong as he looks because his style was designed to counter Kenshin specifically; it wouldn't be as effective against others.
But lost at the end. A może los pragnie, by było inaczej? In terms of swordfighting I will give it to Aoshi. Ōtomo said he aimed to make the live-action more complex than the original manga version. That doesn't matter at all! Once it turned out that he was working for Okubo, he tried to flee. He had a brutal battle with Kenshin where both fighters barely walked away alive, although this clash took place before Kenshin's re-training.
