Baki is one of the most popular manga series in Japan. The story follows a 19-year-old martial artist, Baki Hanma. He faces off against some of the world’s strongest fighters along the way. Baki aspires to defeat his father, Yuujirou Hanma, widely regarded as the strongest man.
Baki’s ambition is to become strong enough to defeat Yuujirou, not to replace him as the strongest man alive. The strongest characters in Baki are some of the most feared and respected fighters globally. They have a vast arsenal of techniques and skills at their disposal, which they use to take on anyone who dares to stand in their way. Here are thirteen of the strongest fighters in the series:
Pickle is a fictional character who appears in Baki the Grappler. He’s a prehistoric man who was discovered perfectly preserved in a saline rock formation. Pickle is presumably the only character physically stronger than Yujiro, which Baki specifically mentions before their fight.
This massive humanoid lived during the Jurassic/Cretaceous period. Pickle has been preserved for nearly 200 million years in a saline rock formation. He was born during the Cretaceous Era and used to fight T-Rexes before killing and eating them with his monstrous strength.
