When it comes to anime, there are popular characters and then there are bonafide legends. Over the decades, the shonen genre has amassed a legion of mascots who’ve come to embody the demographic the world over. And of course, fans love nothing more than to pit those top fighters against one another whenever possible.

It’s True Though
Naw put some respect on my man’s Naruto’s name. His hand to hand combat is lethal. Man was throwing hands with someone who’s eyes literally read movement https://t.co/vgP0YYAOg7

A Matter of Expertise
In terms of pure fighting skills…Goku.
Naruto’s entire fighting style is centered on his immense chakra and various techniques. As a raw martial artist, Goku has more experience and trained under more masters. https://t.co/c0apDwefHH

A Close Call
Goku prolly has better hand to hand skill since he can fight blind and has mastered almost forms of fighting.
Naruto is good a wing-chun but also has insane combat intelligence. https://t.co/N8RKIUIz7C

Practice Makes Perfect
Ye Goku… even without ki ya gotta remember he trains practically every day, also had hyperbolic time chamber which was like a year’s worth of training in a day… for like 10 years with cell and majin buu saga or smth.
Naruto here doing paperwork for 7-8 years. https://t.co/i0ODrS2VzH
