    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.
