DWOAH: Muscular vs Yujiro Hanma
Deadliest warriors of all historyMuscular vs Yujiro HanmaAll that matters to me is showing off my strengthMuscular info:Height: 6 foot 7Weight: 265lbsWeapons: Bare HandsStrengths: In the short time he spent on page/screen in My Hero Academia Muscular proved to be one of the most dangerous Villains ever shown, Demi-Godlike strength (Was one of the most physically powerful characters shown in the series, Can increase his strength via his Muscle Augmentation Quirk, Can smash through and crush rocks with total ease, Can cause Earthquakes with his blows, Broke Deku’s arm who was using 5% of One for All, Was able to compete against Deku using 100% of One for All, Has overpowered and killed multiple Pro Heroes in the past, His strength can be arguably equated to be nearly on par with end of career All Might), Extreme durability (Could be considered to be one of the most durable Villains shown in the series, Tanked everything Deku threw at him from 5% all the way to 100%, Can increase his durability with his Muscle Augmentation Quirk, Withstood blows from multiple Pro Heroes in the past with one of the fights costing him his eye), Supersonic speeds (Despite his large size Muscular was able to keep up with Deku during their fight and even catch him off guard multiple times), Has complete control of his muscle fibres thanks to his Quirk and can move them freely like tendrils.Weaknesses: Is incredibly single minded especially when he gets in a fight only caring about making his opponents suffer and bleed rather than actually planning, Relies entirely on sheer brute strength to fight and as such knows no real fighting styles so he acts as just a fast Berserker, Whilst his durability is one of the best in the series it has its limits as he was eventually knocked out when Deku threw everything he had at him.Yujiro Hanma info:Height: 6 foot 3Weight: 300lbsWeapons: Bare HandsStrengths: Known as the ‘Strongest creature on Earth’ Yujiro is the most powerful character in the Baki the Grappler universe, Demi-Godlike strength (Is the strongest character in the series which is full of characters who can casually flip tanks and crush metal with their bare hands, Stopped an Earthquake by punching the ground, Killed and tore apart a 50 foot tall Elephant, A 20 foot tall Polar Bear and a 25 foot tall Water Buffalo with his Bare Hands, Casually tore Dorian’s face off during their fight, Walked through reinforced bulletproof glass, Squeezed coal dust hard enough to turn it into diamonds, A flick of his fingers is comparable to being shot with an Assault Rifle, Pushed back 100 Riot Police at once, Can push through solid ground like it was jelly), Demi-Godlike durability (Is the most durable character in the series, When struck by lightning he outright ignored it, Baki at his strongest could barely phase him, Walks off a 50 storey fall completely unharmed, Was unphased by Baki’s ‘Benda’ technique which causes pain so intense that the recipient's body shuts down rather than dealing with the pain), Massively hypersonic speed (Is easily the fastest character in the series, His fight with Baki was so fast that the crowd watching could barely see them, Can casually dodge bullets), Possesses a tangible Aura (His very energy and killing intent can influence the world around him e.g. once got so pissed at Baki he made the skyscraper they were in shake), Can augment his power via his Demon Back technique, Is incredibly intelligent, Has tested himself against Masters of all known martial arts and defeated them all, Took on the United States Military and won (All US Presidents in the Baki universe must swear peace to him as part of their inauguration speech), Was never defeated in the series.Weaknesses: Thanks to his pride and total belief in his own power Yujiro refuses to block his opponents strongest attacks deeming it ‘rude’, This is only when he is sure that he can survive them however as when he felt just how powerful a punch from Kaku Kaioh would be he was sent scrambling out of the way of it with a look of shock on his face.Battle begin!The forest night air was cool and quiet save for the sounds of a campfire and of teeth tearing into cooked meat, at the campfire sat a solitary man who heartily devoured his meal, the carcass of a massive 25 foot tall Elk that he had slaughtered himself with his bare hands, its neck twisted at a grotesque 180 degree angle.As Yujiro enjoyed his well earned meal the sound of approaching footsteps drew his attention, the Ogre looking over his shoulder to see a huge cloaked man marching towards him, the sight of his large frame and heavy musculature bringing a sadistic grin to Hanma’s face “how nice, dinner with company, would you care to join me? Or do you hunger for something...else?” he greeted setting down the leg of the Elk he had been tearing into.Grinning maliciously himself under his cloak Muscular threw off the cloak before reeling his Fist back, the muscles of his arm tearing apart and reforming as he used his Quirk to strengthen the limb “show me your blood!!!!” the Villain roared before throwing his Fist directly into Yujiro’s face.As the Villains Fist met the Ogre’s face the impact cracked the ground below Yujiro before he was forced straight into it, Muscular putting several dozen tons of pressure into the blow to break the ground beneath his target like it was made of glass, snuffing out the campfire as he buried Yujiro entirely into the earth.Letting out a sinister chuckle as he slowly pulled his Fist out of the ground he expected to see his hand bathed in blood but to his shock other than dirt his hand came out spotless.A split second later the ground behind him erupted as Yujiro burst from it, his grin having only gotten wider as his face showed no damage from Muscular’s attack as he then retaliated with a roundhouse kick straight to the Villain’s head and neck, making his head snap to a perfect 90 degree angle to the side.Reeling from the blow Muscular used the momentum from the hit to turn around and swing back at Yujiro with an uppercut, his Fist meeting the Ogre’s jaw with enough force to behead lesser men but in response Yujiro grinned monstrously “oh you’re going to be fun!”.Muscular seemed to share the same sentiment as the Villain grinned just as wide throwing a left hook which Yujiro reflected with his right forearm, the dense muscle of his arm denting from the impact but the limb itself didn’t move whilst Muscular’s entire left arm rippled and shifted.Grunting as the punch seemed to do nothing Muscular manipulated the muscles of his arm with his Quirk adding more mass and muscle to the limb to add more force behind it but Yujiro still stood strong against it, his arm barely moving as Muscular applied several more tons of pressure behind his Fist.As Muscular’s arm swelled to inhuman proportions Yujiro suddenly moved away from him causing the Villain to fall forward from his own momentum, the Ogre ducking down before throwing his Fist forward in a brutal sucker punch to the gut making Muscular spit up blood for the first time in as long as he could remember, feeling like his intestines had perforated as he then brought both Fists down upon Yujiro’s back burying him up to his chest in the ground.Raising his boot to curb stomp the Ogre Muscular was caught off guard as Yujiro dug his hands into the dirt and flipped the ground out from under the Villain as if it was a table he was standing on, knocking the Villain off balance before erupting from the ground again, his eyes borderline glowing with malice as his features once again twisted into a monstrous grin.As Yujiro threw himself at him Muscular responded by grabbing a large rock that had been torn out of the ground and slamming it as hard as he could to the side of the Ogres head, shattering the rock into dust as Yujiro was knocked off course and sent tumbling to the dirt.Rolling as he hit the ground Yujiro didn’t miss a beat as he stopped and slammed both Fists to the ground, outright shattering the earth beneath them and sending a huge crack shooting through the ground towards Muscular as the very earth opened up for Yujiro.As the ground gave way Muscular surged forward, the ground further cracking and crumbling beneath his booming footfalls as he charged at Yujiro enlarging both of his arms with his Quirk to add more power to them before slamming his hands to both sides of Yujiro’s head in a deafening thunderclap with enough force to create a shockwave that further broke apart the ground beneath them.To the Villains' shock however Yujiro barely reacted to the attack, an attack that he had used several times in the past to either severely cripple or outright kill Pro Heroes “my turn!” the Ogre then jeered, knocking Muscular’s arms away before mirroring his attack, slamming the palms of his hands to the sides of Muscular’s head.This time however the effect was far more devastating as Muscular felt like two Grenades had gone off inside of his head, blood bursting from his ears as his eardrums burst from the impact of the strikes making him roar in pain and rage as he was deafened, his prosthetic left eye also flying out of his skull as he lurched forward with his hands reflexively shooting up to cover his blood gushing ears.As Muscular lurched forward Yujiro threw his leg up at a perfect 180 degree angle to kick up along the Villain’s body and straight into his jaw, shattering several teeth whilst blood burst from his torso, the kick having been so fast and forceful it cut through Muscular’s skin like a Knife.Snarling through his broken teeth Muscular then lunged forward, wrapping his arms around Yujiro’s body trapping his leg upwards to more easily knock him off balance before he outright charged him through the forest, using his body as a battering ram as he charged through the trees shattering them one by one with Yujiro’s body.After ramming Yujiro through a good twenty or so trees Muscular then threw him forward into several more trees causing them to crash to the ground as well, the Villain left panting as his muscles swelled and shifted, the fibres of them breaking through his skin again making it look like his limbs had been skinned from the shoulders to his wrists.“Tsk, not bad, you’ve got some strength to ya” Muscular then heard Yujiro compliment him as the dust settled around where the Ogre had landed, Yujiro having landed in such a way that he was sat in an almost throne-like manner on the fallen trees, his body having smashed a perfect indentation into them to make himself comfortable sitting with one leg crossed over the other.Shocked that he was still alive Muscular felt a strange mixture of rage and joy, angry at his mocking tone that was now barely audible to him thanks to his damaged ears but happy that the fight could continue, the Villain augmenting near his entire upper body into a mass of writhing and pulsating muscles as he ran at Yujiro at full speed, the Ogre just grinning and mockingly beckoning him to hit him with everything he had.Bringing both Fists down upon the Ogre Muscular created an impact that warped the ground beneath them into an easily thirty foot deep crater in a near instant, the Villain then starting to violently slam his Fists against Yujiro’s body and head further deepening the crater with every savage blow “SHOW! ME! YOUR! BLOOD!!!!!” he bellowed like a feral beast, each punch landing with enough force to rend metal and destroy stone but yet he hadn’t drawn a single drop of blood from the Ogre.Until his final punch slammed against his face bringing the satisfying crunch of a broken nose, his single eye widening with glee as a burst of blood erupted from Yujiro’s face bringing a feral grin to the Villains face “that’s it! MORE BLOOD! SHOW ME MORE!!!”.Raising his Fist to bring it down again Muscular grunted as his arm was suddenly stopped mid punch, Yujiro’s hand shooting up to catch Muscular’s Fist before effortlessly starting to push back against it, the Villain adding more and more muscle to his limb to push back slowing Yujiro’s ascent out of the crater but failing out outright stop it.As he rose from the ground Yujiro’s face was the very image of demonic malice, his features twisting to accommodate the evil grin on his lips as his hair began to rise, a deep red aura glowing from his body as his muscles tensed and pulsed tearing the shirt from his body to reveal his almost grotesquely overly muscled frame, his front showing diamond hard pecs and ten pack whilst the muscles of his back were formed into the shape of a grinning Demon, his spine audible cracking as he used the Demon Back to further strengthen his muscles.Violently twisting Muscular’s arm tearing multiple of the writhing muscle fibres that reinforced the limb Yujiro then shunted the Villain back, making Muscular stumble before Yujiro swung at him with a right hook so fast and powerful it looked like his arm was glowing, his Fist cutting through Muscular’s torso like a Knife causing more blood to erupt from his chest.“THAT’S! MY! BLOOD!!!” Muscular roared with fury adding more muscle mass to his entire upper body, the muscle fibres of his arms crossing over to reinforce his chest and abdomen as he brought both Fists down upon Yujiro to which the Ogre grabbed both of them prompting both Killers to enter a violent shoving match.As they both pushed against each other the ground beneath them began to quake as the sheer pressure of their presence set off a level 5 Earthquake, the aura around Yujiro glowing a crimson blood red as his eyes glowed a malicious white.As the forest around them started to fall to the Earthquake with the trees crashing down around them the Ogre suddenly broke the grapple they were locked in and viciously through Muscular to the ground, further shattering it before slamming his Fist to the Villains reinforced chest, the sound of perforating muscles and shattering ribs echoing out as the shockwave of the punch continued through Muscular’s body and into the ground below.Within seconds of the shockwave travelling through the tectonic plates the Earthquake came to an end, Yujiro having literally told the earth to ‘stop it’ and it listened.Spitting out even more blood Muscular struck out with his arm to knock Yujiro away from him to allow himself to get back up, his upper body now just a writing mass of muscle fibres and sinew as he forced his Quirk to its upper limits, a vicious grin still showing on his features as he relished the sheer violence and destruction the fight was causing despite the damage to himself, a sentiment that Yujiro shared as the Ogre was more than impressed by the Villains ability to make him bleed.With a battlecry each both Killers charged at each other, the ground shaking and breaking under their footfalls as Muscular swung his arms like massive Clubs, violently slamming them against Yujiro’s head and upper body as the Ogre took every hit in his stride, each blow creating a shockwave until Yujiro suddenly lashed his arms out to grab Muscular’s, his fingers digging deep into the pulsating muscle fibres with enough force to draw blood as they ‘cut’ straight through them.Sneering as his grin grew even wider Yujiro dug his fingers as deep as he could into Muscular’s arms as the fibres in them began to wrap around his hands, seemingly trapping him in place.But that had been what the Ogre was counting on as he suddenly jumped to slam his feet to Muscular’s abdomen before straightening his legs and back to pull on the Villain’s arms with all of his might, the sounds of tearing muscle and sinew ringing out alongside Muscular’s cries of shock and pain, blood bursting from his writhing limbs as he tried to heal and reinforce them only for the new fibres to be torn as quickly as they were formed.Cackling wildly as he pulled Yujiro soon tore off Muscular’s arms leaving just stumps in their wake, the stumps fountaining blood as the fibres of them lashing and whipped around trying to find and reconnect to the lost arms whilst the Villain screamed in agony and rage.His scream was quickly cut off though as Yujiro through his arms aside before slamming his Fist into Muscular’s gut, knocking the air from his lungs and silencing his cry as his hand tore through his abdomen to further rupture his insides.Ripping his hand out of Muscular’s stomach dragging out some of his intestines with it Yujiro then surged forward to grab the Villain in a bear hug, lifting the larger man up and with one flex of his muscles he heard the satisfying snap of Muscular’s spine breaking, the Villain’s single eye wide and completely white as the pain overwhelmed him but Yujiro wasn’t finished with him yet.Grasping at his own wrists Yujiro lifted Muscular highed and squeezed...and squeezed...and SQUEEZED, the sounds of his insides rupturing, muscles breaking and bones shattering until finally the Ogre let out a triumphant cry/cackle as his arms finally met his chest, having bisected Muscular completely letting both lifeless pieces fall to the shattered ground.“Not bad but I’ve fought better” Yujiro then sneered as his aura slowly died down, the Ogre then casting his gaze to the city in the distance “now, let’s see if this place has as many strong ‘Heroes’ as they say it has” he growled, pocketing his hands and starting to laugh darkly to himself as he leisurely strolled towards the city.Winner: Yujiro HanmaWell, when I had started getting into Baki the Grappler I had no idea just how bat shit crazy strong the characters could be and after finding out just how much of a monster Yujiro is (especially since he is a glaring tribute to Akuma) I just had to do a fight for him.But why does he defeat Muscular?Well when comparing their categories it could be argued that both Yujiro and Muscular are fairly equal in terms of strength, both of them possibly able to be compared to end of career All Might as they can both shatter stone with utter ease and cause tremors with their attacks.What Yujiro had over Muscular in spades though was durability (Yujiro has only been shown to be hurt less than a handful of times throughout his entire life whilst Muscular was beaten down by early series Deku), speed and combat skill, the latter two allowing the Ogre to outright speedblitz the outright slow in comparison Villain and easily overwhelm Muscular’s extremely simple Berserker style of combat.So whilst Muscular thought himself to be an unstoppable Monster of carnage and chaos he simply pales in comparison to Baki the Grappler’s resident Ogre.
