    Who’s your favorite anime rival? Why do you like them?

    One of my favs is Bakugou from My Hero Academia. I love how he and Deku both were inspired by the same person to become the #1 hero although for different reasons. Watching his character development is something I really enjoy because he doesn’t go from your typical highschool bully to Mr. Nice Guy shaking everyone’s hand in a few chapters. He’s slowly but surely becoming a better person and seeing it the way Horikoshi is writing it is very believable imo.

    Vegeta is all time favorite but I hate how goku doesn’t act like he is a rival though
    Sasuke is my least liked cause even though naruto has proved himself to be a rival he doesn’t acknowledge him

    There's a reason nearly every shounen has a few major rivalries. They bring out the best and worst and most interesting in both characters. Both get good opportunities to grow stronger in different ways.
    • Yugi & Kaiba
    • Naruto & Sasuke. (Hell nearly every rivarly in Naruto was great).
    • Yoh & Ren
    • Akashi & Amaya
    • Amuro & Char
    • Natsu & Gray and Gajeel
    • Goku & Vegeta
    • Akira & Yarai
    • Leina & Risty


    I guess my favourite was Yugi and Kaiba though. Could be hilarious. Or genuinely compelling at times. They co-operated and competed so many times, progressed so far. But always stayed true to their stark personality differences.

    100% this, mostly because Sendo is such a badass, he's my favorite character of the series by far.

    Some of my favorite rivalries in Japanese manga and anime are Amuro Ray and Char Aznable in Gundam, Goku and Vegeta in Dragon Ball, Kenshin Himura and Hajime Saito in Rurouni Kenshin, and Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto, because all of those rivalries were intensely emotional had a great impact on the plots of their respective series.
