    In fiction, there are instances where characters enter a scene very dramatically, and this is certainly very true for Japanese manga and animation.

    Therefore, I wish to start a thread that discusses instances in anime and manga in which characters enter a scene very dramatically. This thread may possible contain spoilers, so please be certain to cover instances that spoil a story with spoiler tags.

    My first example is in Naruto,
    Spoiler:
    in which the paths of Pain invade Konoha; Konoha is surrounded by a barrier, and Pain, rather than attempt to discreetly infiltrate, very dramatically throws his animal path body through the barrier and has her summon the others into the village.
    My next example is also from Naruto,
    Spoiler:
    where Naruto himself returns to Konoha immediately after Pain destroys it with Shinra Tensei, and looks amazingly badass standing atop of Gamakichi, who is standing atop of Gamabunta, with Gamahiro and Gamaken to either side of him.
    If I can remember other examples, I shall add them to this thread.

    What does everyone else have to say about this? What are some of the most epic and badass entrances in Japanese animation and manga?

    As a species, we really need to come up with better words than badass and epic

    Would you possibly provide examples of this? I myself believe that his arrival on Earth when the others were being crushed by Nappa, and then his arrival on Namek, when the others were being crushed by Recoome, were both very epic.

    Perhaps so, but this is not the thread for discussing sch a subject.

    Also, the links in my first post are not working; why not?

    Wrath showing up and storming the palace in FMA Brotherhood. Just shows up, refuses to even try to outflank the enemy (it would be undignified for him to enter his own home through the back door) and basically carves a hole through some of the finest soldiers in Amestris. Including a goddamn tank.

    Also, Atem in the new Yu-Gi-Oh! movie.
    When all seems lost, that old millenium puzzle sound effect plays. There's a blaze of golden light, a moment of stunned silence to let the fans cheer and the bad guy to crap himself. The classic theme music plays. Then Atem summons Mahad to end him without a word. Atem will always save the day when he's needed. But he still won't overshadow how capable and confident little Yugi has become.

    He looks awesome. And his rescue of Gohan on Namek before wrecking the Ginyu Force is one of the most awesome anime entrances of all time. Its just a shame that he usually shows up about 4 episodes after his friends get killed.

    The most epic ones I can think off are all from One Piece:
    - Strawhats walk to Arlong Park
    - Sanji (Mr Prince) rescue entrance in Alabasta
    - Strawhats walk to Franky house
    - Strawhats walk to Enies Lobby
    - Admiral Kizaru to Sabody Archipelago
    - Law, Luffy and Kid walk
    - Silver's Raileigh saving Zoro entrance
    - Luffy's crazy entrance to Marinford
    - Zoro (Time skip) entrance
    - Kaido first Appearance.

    There are more.

    Remember when Jinsung showed up and stormed Karaka's castle and took down dozens of guards just to make a point? I'm surprised Karaka still has the balls to try to take out Baam's thorn, given Jinsung's reputation.

    Always loved the Zeno and Netero entrance. Especially when Zeno says "Dragon Dive" in japanese. Goosebumps!

    Gildarts first coming was also pretty cool. In a fun way.

    Bradley coming back to his palace.
