    Since everybody are making Tier lists of different stuff. I thought of having a "Sword-men" Tier list.

    Here are the Tiers:-

    Tier 0: Virtually Impossible to cross swords with.

    Soki, Oni of the Ash

    Mithos Yggdrasill /w Eternal Sword (Tales of Symphonia) Master Swordsman, also wields a cosmic weapon, Split one world into two seperate dimensions

    Lloyd Irving /w Eternal Sword (Tales of Symphonia) Master Swordsman, also wields a cosmic weapon, fuses two seperate dimensions into one whole world

    Tenchi (Tenchi Muyo)

    Tier 1: Fighting them is suicide.

    Samanosuke Akechi
    Jubei Yagyu
    Legendary Dark Knight Sparda

    Tier 2: Don't even think about it.

    The Sparda Brothers

    Tier 3: Can defeat Continents.

    Kyo and high tier SDK characters

    Tier 4: Country threat.

    Kyoya Izayoi

    Tier 5: Army threat.

    Ogami Itto (Lone Wolf & Cub)
    Yamada Asaemon (Samurai Executioner)
    Miyamoto Musashi (Vagabond)
    Sasaki Kojiro (Vagabond)

    Tier 6: A large troop threat.

    Zoro (One Piece)

    Tier 7: A small troop threat.

    Rurouni Kenshin (RuroKen)

    Tier 8: A unit threat.

    Magic abilities of any swordman can be used.

    I'll provide a list of Swordmen later.

    Go ahead, post. Only add characters who have both skill and power.

    Just a fair warning. Never disagree with people's placement. You'll not hear the end of it...

    As for swordsman... Kyoya Izayoi (Demon City series) should be tier 5, extremely borderline 4, as per the second manga. He may move up because he's going on to fight a guy who can cause floods in a city by just thinking it.

    Kyo and high tier SDK characters would probably be around tier 3.

    You're a joke. Unlike you, reasonable people like me and Pharaoh can reach a agreement on a teir.

    Link is a tier above 0. Well, that is if you include "The Chronicles of Link"

    Hyuga Ricdeau (Xenogears) is tier 5. His wife Yui Uzuki should be in that same tier. And I think Kyoya should be definitely be tier 4. I forgot about what he did in the first manga that would make him at that spot easily without any further knowledge of him in the other manga (tap into a unversal power)

    Call me crazy, but shouldn't this recent rash of "tier" lists, be moved to... oh I don't know... the Meta Battledome? Was it not created for threads such as these?

    Anyways here are some guys to rank:-
    1- Dante and Vergil.
    2- Sparda.
    3- Onimusha characters. (But you should be specific: Human or Onimusha form ?)
    4- Guts.
    5- Gotei 13.
    6- Aka no Ou.
    7- Ryu Hayabusa.

    I'll come up with more later because Im too lazy to post right now.

    Now that I think about it... a tier list of this kind needs a different format. Looking at Dante, he'd be able to be, at the very most, continent... but that's not solely on his sword skill.

    Maybe we should incorporate another style... one that reflects a swordsman "skill" and not overall power.

    I started to think that too. But when I saw that "what's his name that changes often" anime/manga thread hasn't been moved, I figure that it was okay where they were.

    Im reading your posts.:amuse

    DBZ shouldn't be here since it focuses more on martial arts than swords man ship. Trunks doesn't have great sword skills, he just swings his sword like crazy.

    Quoted for truth. Trunks, if ever we converted this to a tier list reflecting skill, would be less than Kenshin... even though he has a power greater than him.

    Lloyd from ToS, but only if he has the powerful sword, which negates the use for sworsmanship. I would consider him planet threat, without it.

    So we're sticking to power, and not skill, right? If so, Trunks and Janemba should stay. They, technically, are swordsman.

    No I meant Skill. For example, Trunks has power but he sucks with swords. So @Everbody: Only add characters who have both skill and power and not only one.

    I'll go edit my 1st post to avoid confusion.
