    I havn't made a thread in a long time. I don't know who'll win (hopefully it's a close fight). Who takes this.

    Well, before Scorpio gets here and tells us who wins for sure I'm going to put my partially educated guess on Recca.

    There's an off chance that Ranma could do something interesting with a Hyruu-shoten-ha, but Recca seems to be too flexible in his abilities to me.

    I lol'ed :p Can I help it if I'm a Flame of Recca fanboy who also happens to love Ranma? XD

    Anyways, I would have to agree with Moogle and go with Recca on this one. In fighting skills Ranma would come out on top but Recca with all of his Dragons just has to much for Ranma to handle. Although if Recca is careless Ranma could possible win it with the Hiryuu Shouten Ha since Recca produces plenty of heat to fuel it, but if Recca took the fight seriously I dont see Ranma being able to pull it off. So ya, I would give this one to Recca.

    I haven't read Recca so my opinion isn't very acccurate in this fight....but if Recca's main weapon is heat then he is asking for a Hiryu Shoten Ha.

    Ranma already fought against a fire specialist (Saffron) that was practically the reincarnation of the phoenix and a fire elemental.

    Ya, but if Recca just used ordinary fire like Saffron did I would probably give this to Ranma. However, Recca's flame dragons give him abilities that are more then enough to stop or atleast disrupt Ranma while he is setting up the Hiryuu Shouten Ha :p Plus against Saffron Ranma did have that staff that helped him a bit in countering Saffron's fire. Without it he probably would have lost.

    As much as it utterly gauls me to admit, Recca probably will win here; even though Saffron >>>>>>> anything Recca can do. With the Gekkaja, however, Ranma could rape Recca.

    What?? You honestly think Saffron was better then Recca?? :huh Saffron was powerful, but Recca also has power as well as tons of versitility :p

    @Bullet, you think Ranma should be allowed the Gekkaja for this fight? I think it would possible make things more interesting :wink

    Are you kidding? Saffron was a living avatar of fire; I would say the only way Recca could match him is to take off his bracer. Granted, I've only read up to Volume 22 or Recca, but Saffron blew up a mountain like it was nothing. That in itself would negate Kokuu, Recca's second-strongest dragon.

    Hell, Saffron's original purpose is to act as a living sun for an entire civilization. Not even Kurenai could get that hot.

    Without to much spoilers, Recca by the end of the manga was more powerful then he was without his Tekkou against Kurei in v4 :p

    Right, Kokuu is negated, but what about all the other dragons? Thats the versitility I was talking about. Saffron has tons of fire power, but Recca has fire power, illusions, a shield, a whip, a sword, strength enhancement, and healing.

    Well Saffron really dosnt have to be as hot as the sun to heat a civilization like the sun because he would be a lot closer. However, ya, Saffron can probably produce more heat then Recca, however Recca's fire power is more condesed (Saffron couldnt control his flame, Recca can and does.)

    Then I would say they are about equal. You really, really don't know Saffron.

    Not only is Saffron immune to fire and heat, he can re-grow body parts and is pretty much immortal. He can use ki blasts, fly, and he rips off his own wings to toss at opponents; that's pretty damn versatile.

    Actually, Saffron can control his temp. The form he fought Ranma in wasn't his full transformation; he was interrupted. Perfect Saffron can control how much heat he puts out.

    I don't see how Recca would get past the whole, "Fire can't kill him!" problem.

    I don't know Saffron? Please, Ive been a Ranma fan forever and have read through the whole manga multiple times :p

    When did Saffron ever rip off his own wings? :huh Plus Saffron is never stated to be immune to fire, just highly resistant to it just like Recca is.

    Ya, but Saffron never did reach his perfect form. I was talking about when he was fighting Ranma.

    I wasn't even talking about who would win in a fight as this is Ranma vs Recca and not Saffron vs Recca. I just contested your statement that Saffron was ">>>>>>>" anything Recca could do. However, if this were a fight between Recca and Saffron he could win in at least two ways, 1) Physically beat him (Saffron was stated to be weak physically and can be beaten that way) or 2) Fight Saffron until he burns himself out (stated by Saffron himself when fighting Ranma).


    Kuku, Recca's 7th Dragon is much more powerful then Recca's Moko Tabisha and he can shoot hundreds of them simulatiously instead of Ranma's two lol :p

    Umi-Senken is definatly factor, but Recca could counter it with Setsuna who is a blind Dragon who would be able to track Ranma by his heat signature. Also, Recca can use Rui to dissappear from Ranma's sight as well :p

    He ripped off his own wings and threw them at Ranma as a fire wheel attack. You sure you've read the manga? O.o

    It depends on what part of the Ranma fight you're talking about. Towards the end, Saffron was so hot he was melting rock into magma without even thinking about it. Recca, while immune to fire, would get melted by that.

    Recca isn't all that physical, though. Sure, he brawls but most of the time he relies on the dragons. The question remains; could he get close enough to Saffron to actually hit him? Like I said above, Saffron was melting rock by the end of that fight.

    Saffron, if allowed to fully mature, won't burn out. If you wanna handicap him from the git-go, however, you can. However, the Tenka Shunmetsu Koukyuu Dan could take any of Recca's dragons out, me thinks. :oh

    Ok, I remember that part now. I thought you were talking about when Ranma cut off his wing, but it was after that. Still its nothing more then a fire attack, nothing really special to Recca.

    Melting rock?

    Kurei was doing that back in Volume 4 while useing only a fraction of his power. Heck, the walls were even lined with metal and it still melted through like butter and Recca takes Kurenai's blasts a few times in the manga. Also, Recca routinely cuts through stone and metal with Saiha and yet he caught the blade with his bare hand before.

    Recca has enough physical power to make Saffron feel it :p

    That guy wasnt some weak nobody either, he was probably one of the physically strongest people in Flame of Recca.

    The thing is, Saffron never did reach his final stage. Taking him as the strongest version shown in the manga is not handicaping him, taking his final form which was never even achieved is powering him up.

    Also a Koku + Nadare combo could match Tenka Shunmetsu Koukyuu Dan IMO

    While Ranma 1/2 is mainly a comedy manga, it does have many formidable fighters.
