    When I watched the first few episodes of Nanatsu No Taizai in ~2014 I dropped it because it didn't do a whole lot for me; It had a bit of a been there done that feel to it. A good while later images of a character that looked like he would give Asgardian Gods a run for their money started appearing which made me pick up the manga again. That character was Escanor. And what a ride it has been whenever he showed up - the flashback where he incinerates some cocky bloodsucker, obliterating members of the Ten Commandments left and right and even beating Meliodas. (:maybe) There are very few characters I've come across that ooze hype as he does.

    Yes, praise the fucking sun.

    Escanor will give the Demon King the same treatment Broly will give Goku in the next film

    Praise be to the strongest Sin and the stronger character in the manga! What's a Demon King or a Supreme Deity compared to the great Escanor? Nothing that's what!

    This series never got my interest for a long time. I was skimming through chapters. :leo

    But after Escanor was introduced, it was an interesting read whenever he showed up :blessed

    Escanor vs. Uchiha Clan

    He heard they were even cockier than the DK's sons. He'll teach them how to praise the sun.

    An undefeated track record so far, unless you don't really consider it a "victory" since Chandler stopped Sunshine. :hm
    On top of that, the fight is still ongoing.

    Eh fuck it, PRAISE THE SUN!

    Right, but it wasn't really a "fight" perse because Escanor's objective wasn't to harm Gowther, but the Commandments for screwing with him.

    Still, it shouldn't come with a surprise that Invasion can be one of the few abilities to neutralize him (and it may be obsolete at a given time, especially when Merlin power amp'd Gowther's magic to knock him unconscious).

    He won, there's no denying that . If Chandler didn't interfere Zel would be dead. Upon looking at some of the pics that came before the chapter I was afraid he didn't seriously wound his opponent, but not only did he do that, but he blocked both his abilities. It's pretty unanimous, and this might be even better than with Mel because at least Zel was going all out while it's not clear if Mel was.

    I don't even know if the fight can resume as expected afterwards, after the Mael reveal of course, so anything goes. No use thinking too much about that atm.

    I already thought of a few fitting songs, I should get a new editing software so I can make a decent video this time around....

    It was a fight on grounds of it being a match in a tournament Escanor took part in. Just because he was distracted doesn't make it invalid.
    It wasn't a "legit" win, but it's better everyone else did combined so far, so... As usual, the number two spot as the strongest belongs to local boytoy.

    Both Mel and Zel were stomping Escanor till The One. Gowther was just fortunate enough to finish him off due to circumstance.

    It's a win, not trying to take that from him. But he didn't perform the best. I'd say:

    1. Zeldris
    2. AM Meliodas
    3. Gowther
    4. Estarossa
    5. Melaschula
    6. Galan

    It's honestly more a joke really, but by a lot of technicalities, he did better than the others. He fought a weaker version, absolutely, but that's just part of who Escanor is.
    Of course, by taking even MORE liberties here, Gloxinia would've killed Escanor if he wanted to. In night form. When he was not prepared for any kind of combat. So if we throw all standards out, Gloxinia did the best?

    Gloxinia explained the rules of the tournament to the people, Escanor, being a small wimp at night as he is complained and promptly got tentacled. And then healed. It's not really a fight.

    Oh, well obviously we're not gonna count that.

    That aside, going back to my list, this is why I placed them how I did.

    1. Zeldris- held up a resistance to The One, and survived one of his signature moves
    2. AM Meliodas- humiliated every version of Escanor up till The One
    3. Gowther- beat base Escanor
    4. Estarossa- more or less equal to base Escanor, but got humiliated by amped version
    5. Melaschula- snuck up on him to push out his soul
    6. Galan- made a superficial wound on 'base' Escanor

    Yeah that seems fair. Considering Gowther had the ability to essentially one-shot Escanor in the fight, if they had gone at it seriously, Gowther might actually stand a chance. (Escanor would also one-shot, presumably)
