    The high tiers of Kengan Asura aren't really remarkable stats wise.

    If he's above Building level and Supersonic, he should clear easily. Think there was a calc of Gensaki getting HS to MHS maybe though.

    Well there is one fighter who can hit above their weight class. Hanafusa Hajime has got virus hax, bone blades, no sense of pain, and contigencies that can revive him if he dies, one of which allowed him to come back from a snapped neck.

    So potentially he could infect Sanosuke with a lethal virus, and either wait for him to die from it, or let Sanosuke hit him in a way or area that would be fatal to a normal person so he can effectively play dead and come back from it later while Sanosuke walks away not knowing he's dying.

    Oh yeah Hanafusa the doctor. If Hanafusa pulls it off, and in non-Kenagan matches he defeated enemies by just releasing an invisible gas/toxic weapon, he can likely win. Though I think overall KA loses.

    I know who he is. Problem is Sano has better reactions than even the top tiers in KA (best speed feat so far is Ohma cutting the whip tip) so theyd already be hard pressed trying to hit him. He also has the dc to put them down after a hit or two with the FnK which he's mastered or even the upgraded version.

    As @IdioticGamer mentioned Airborne viruses are standard equipment for Hanafusa though. He just wasn’t allowed to bring one into the tournament. Him getting into Hanafusa’s vicinity means he’ll get infected. And even if he manages to strike Hanafusa before the virus can fully take effect as I mentioned in my earlier post Hanafusa has no sense of pain, and has multiple mechanisms in his body to revive him after he gets killed.

    The airborne virus wasnt allowed in tournament so iy wouldnt be allowed now since theyre fighting in the tournament. Even then the virus has no feats to speak of so we dont know how it would affect Sano


    Being able to restart your heart is nice and all but it means nothing if your opponent can hit hard enough to crush most of your internal organs/bones in a single hit let alone multiple and even if he did he's to slow to actually hit sano so at best he'd just be a punching bag. Feeling no pain also doesnt mean he doesnt get injured. He barely managed to kill bando and Sano's a whole different beast .

    That’s kinda shitty. I doubt the OP meant to restrict the character due to the setting. It’s just less awkward to say “X character enters the Kengan tournament” than “X character enters the Kengan Ashura verse”.

    I’m pretty sure we saw a flashback where Hanafusa used it to take down a base full of KKK type fuckers in no time at all.

    Eh. I think Hanafusa could let himself be “killed” in a way he knows he could come back from. For example he could let Sano break his neck by making him hit his head or chin to force his head back. He could even bait Sano into it as iirc Sano wasn’t all that smart. Sano would think there’s no way Hanafusa could survive a broken neck and walk away not knowing he’s already been infected.

    Problem is if Sano hits him in the head itll do more than snap his neck. A FnK to the face would probably crush his skull


    Again even if he does get his airborne viruses they have no feats. Taking down a group of fodder who we know nothing about isnt worth speaking about

    What if he hits him in the chin? That’s a pretty common area to punch and while it’d break his jaw and his neck he still could come back from it.

    Though heck maybe Hanafusa could die and it could still end up a tie due to Sano dying soon after from a virus.

    Especially if Sano kills Hanafusa in a way where his blood gets on him (like punching through his chest).

    What kind of feats do the fatal viruses even need? Sano’s superhuman attributes haven’t shown to also give him resistance or immunity to toxins/poison. So you don’t need a supervirus to take him down.

    Hanafusa is able to host multiple viruses in his bloodstream at a time as well due to how he has antibodies for each of them.

    Bruh, the FnK would literally end him if it hit him anywhere in his head let alone his chin. The shit casually turns boulders in to dust and the shockwave deals ridiculous damage to internal organs (which is why its known as a one hitter quitter)

    Also no, bando didnt even die after being exposed and he was supposed to die in 12 hours.






    Toxins/poisons no. That isnt what Viruses are though. And if they havent shown to kill people with endurance far beyond what the average person can take we aren't going to say it can. Even if we assume it could kill in 12 hours like his other shit (Which due to the difference in speed and reactions he doesnt even need to worry about) 12 hours is still long enough for him to clear the rest of the tournament

    nah

    Inaba Ryo who is an upper mid tier could deflect/block bullets with his hair from close range = at least supersonic+ reactions



    and he is nothing compared to the high tiers and top tiers (who are small building level+ too)

    Sano can likely win in 1vs1, thanks to the properties of his mastered FnK tech output

    So Blade, do you think Hanafusa scales to Inaba? I accept Hanafusa loses now after the arguments Kurou presented, and even if he got that level of speed scaling but i'm curious.

    Wait, does Kengan Asura get to scale from Street Fighter due to Ryu vs Ohma? : D

    Just a joke but maybe as a bonus scenario...

    Also Hanafusa possibly scales considering how some take notice of his speed but pointed out he'd be worn out easily.

    yeah

    Hanafusa gets the scaling just fine as well

    but he would still had his skull busted from Sano, easily



    the whole Kengan Asura vs SF crossover

    was an actual

    badass dream sequence :mjlol
