Epic battle transformations and power upgrades are the classic tropes in all shonen anime. And sometimes they up the ante with these epic anime final forms. These anime final forms are the best of the best.
Goku’s Super Saiyan Form
This is the one that started it all. Dragon Ball’s several super saiyan transformations have become somewhat of a running gag now. But back then when DBZ revealed this form for the first time, we were all screaming at the top of our longs. Frieza was almost about to end Goku and with it, the hopes of Planet Namek. But Goku pulled the final ace up his sleeve. The Super Saiyan transformation changed the whole shonen anime scene and became a milestone in anime history. Anime final forms may come and go but the Super Saiyan form will always remain in our hearts.
Gon’s Limitation Transformation
There’s a reason Hunter X Hunter will always be regarded as one of the greatest shonen anime to ever exist. There are so many notable moments throughout the series. For us, the moment where Gon uses his limitation transformation during the Chimera Ant arc takes the cake. The transformation works by sacrificing one’s life and nen abilities in exchange for insurmountable power. In this state, Gon can take down even the Chimera Ant King Meruem, which is why Pitou decided to stop him at any cost.
Luffy’s Gear Foruth
The Straw Hat Pirates have come a long way since being a rag tag group that no one takes seriously. Monkey D. Luffy in particular has become a powerhouse and a heavyweight. His control over his Haki abilities have only ended up making him stronger. His devil fruit powers aside, Luffy has also mastered his gear transformations. But it is his Gear Fourth transformation that looks one of the most badass anime final forms in anime history. Gear Fourth uses Gear second and Gear Third’s abilities while pumping even more juice into Luffy’s body, turning him into a jacked up[ Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Naruto’s Baryon Mode
Naruto‘s Tailed Beast Mode was already looking badass. But in Boruto, our blond haired boy got one major upgrade. The Baryon Mode form involves Kurama fusing his chakra with Naruto’s chakra. The process creates a new form of chakra in the same fashion as nuclear fusion. In his Baryon Mode, Naruto had more than enough power to take down Isshiki Otsutsuki. There are still many OG Naruyto fans that are head over hells over this new form. As far as anime final forms go, the Baryon Mode takes the cake as being the second most badass of them all.
Might Guy’s Eight Gates
No one, no one can ever be as cool and badass as Might Guy. the guy came from nothing. From being a failure to getting acknowledged by THE Madara Uchiha as the “Strongest Shinobi” via sheer hard work is no small feat. Might Guy’s greatest technique – the Eight Gates formation – is a double edged sword. It gives him such great power that he can bend space with just his fists. But it will eventually consume his body. Might Guy was never able to walk again. But does he regret anything? He doesn’t. because he was, is, and always will be a legend.
Goku’s Ultra Instinct
We thought Dragon Ball could never top the Super Saiyan transformation during the Frieza saga. With Dragon Ball Super, we were all proved wrong. All his life, Goku trained to hone his fists. All he cared about was the fight. But with Ultra Instinct, he learned that true mastery of combat comes with learning to hone your emotions. To become so one with yourself that you trespass into the domain of the Gods. Ultra Instinct made Goku so unstoppable he was the first mortal who truly started to scare even the Gods.
