So, I hope you all had wonderful birthdays, and I wish you a lot of love, beauty, and strength in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to those who are huge fans of Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame aka The Splendid Seven’s Triumvirate of Strength as well as the leaders of the family, Inuyasha x Ayame as an OTP, Sesshoumaru x Ayame as a liked pairing, and Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha as a BroTP. Sit back, relax, and soak in Sesshoumaru’s, Inuyasha’s, and Ayame’s super strength, magnificent muscle power, and incomparable combat prowess.

Take two mightily muscular dog Yokai warrior king brothers, with the elder one mainly ruling over The Western Lands and the younger one ruling over The Northern Yoro Tribe, and one fabulously formidable wolf Yokai warrior queen of The Northern Yoro Tribe and you have three powerful Yokai warriors who can not only break their enemies’ jaws, snap demons’ necks, and break monsters’ backs with their bare hands but can also lead their family consisting of Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran as well as an entire army of Yokai warriors to victory. It is often no wonder why Shuran and Hakkaku aspire to be as formidable as their most beloved big brother Sesshoumaru, Ginta aspires to be as mighty as his most favourite big brother in the whole world Inuyasha, and Shunran aspires to be just as strong as her dearest older sister Ayame. It is because these three canine warriors embody strength, courage, stamina, and, of course, keeping your bodies in great shape. In fact, Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame each embody the three attributes of strength: sheer physical power, mighty muscle power, and incomparable combat prowess. Sure, all three of them embody these attributes, but one attribute is more dominant than the other.

40 going on 41-year-old Sesshoumaru embodies sheer physical power as The Splendid Seven’s co-leader. He is an avid practitioner of the martial arts, with his preferences being mostly of the striking kind, as in judo, Tae Kwon Do, boxing, and kenpo, but he is also a great grappler when it comes to wrestling, kickboxing, and jujitsu. However, his most favourite martial art is Pankration which he and Inuyasha have been taught via an import of this martial art by the Ancient Greek warriors. Sesshoumaru has definitely trained his mind, his body, and his spirit really hard to the point where he has become The Western Lands’ finest practitioners of jujitsu, Pankration, wrestling, judo, and kickboxing. Furthermore, he is also an equally avid weightlifter, given how often he bench presses and deadlifts as well as how wonderfully defined his muscles have become over the years. Physical strength aside, Sesshoumaru does his very best to keep concentrated in and out the battlefield and also does his best to honour the martial arts code of only using it for self-defence, not for selfish means. He passes on this importance of physical strength and honour of the martial arts code to his children and his grandchildren, especially where his sons Dai, Roku, Kai, and Shinta have become formidable Pankratists, and his daughters Asagi, Rin, and Shiori have become really fine judoka. Enemies better beware when Sesshoumaru’s sheer physical power comes into play.

39 going on 40-year-old Inuyasha embodies mighty muscle power as The Splendid Seven’s leader, given how bulkier he is than Sesshoumaru. Being raised by Ayame’s grandfather and the many wolf Yokai warriors of the North, South, East, and West to the point where he has been calling them Gramps and his army of dads respectively has made him The Northern Yoro Tribe’s strongest wrestler, kickboxer, Pankratist, judoka, Muay Thai practitioner, jujitsu practitioner, boxer, and weightlifter. He has even become the full-fledged Yokai warrior he has been trained to be as a young boy. Inuyasha’s super strength and mighty muscles has also made him the leader of both The Splendid Seven and The Northern Yoro Tribe. In terms of Inuyasha’s skills as a wrestler and Pankratist, he is especially well known for his bone-breaking bearhugs, body-crushing neck-breakers and back-breakers, and his earth-shattering bodyslam in which he runs to his opponent, jumps up really high up the air, and lands on them like a terrifying meteor descending from the galaxies above. Where his fraternal relationship with Sesshoumaru is concerned, he is really glad to have him as a brother because they can challenge each others’ physical prowess in wrestling, jujitsu, Pankration, kickboxing, and Muay Thai, build up each others’ muscles through weightlifting, and be forever united in battle using their full Yokai powers only in grave danger but also to challenge each other. Whenever Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha transform into their full yokai forms complete with red eyes, jagged stripes on their cheeks, and sharper fangs and claws, enemies better beware, for Sesshoumaru’s punches, kicks, and chokeholds compliment Inuyasha’s back-breakers, bearhugs, Boston Crabs, Full Nelsons, and bodyslams in a very mighty way. Aside from Inuyasha’s mighty muscles, he is also fiercely loyal to his family, courageous in all of his endeavours, and really lives the life of a valorous hero and leader. Being married to Ayame for nearly twenty-seven years has also meant that he has built a sturdy roof over his family’s head as well as be an inspiration to their seven sons and even grandchildren, while also making Goraishi the family heirloom. 26 going on 27-year-old triplet sons Masataka, Masaya, and Masaru have grown up to be mighty Pankratists, wrestlers, and kickboxers with muscles of steel and will of iron. 25 going on 26-year-old twin sons Kenta and Keita have grown up to be super strong wrestlers, weightlifters, and bodybuilders to the point where their muscles have become major assets in and out the battlefield. 24 going on 25-year-old twin sons Kazuhiko and Kaito have grown up to be equally strong wrestlers, kickboxers, and boxers with loads of discipline. Looks like Inuyasha and his dear sons are going to see to it that their enemies end up running home with broken bones all over the place thanks to their bulging muscles.

36 going on 37-year-old Ayame embodies incomparable combat prowess as The Splendid Seven’s second-in-command. Sesshoumaru may be chiefly a striker, and Inuyasha may be mainly a grappler, but Ayame combines grappling and striking martial arts so effectively. Therefore, she is The Northern Yoro Tribe’s fiercest and strongest kickboxer, judoka, boxer, and practitioner in Muay Thai, jujitsu, Tae Kwon Do, and kenpo. Her iron fists and fleet feet are absolutely legendary in defeating all of her enemies. Equally as powerful are her clinches, chokeholds, strangleholds, sleeper holds, and bearhugs. Given her great physical prowess, she has also considered herself to be Inuyasha’s equal ever since they were very young children. Nowadays, as full grown adults, she rules side by side as queen of The Northern Yoro Tribe. Sure, there is no doubt that Ayame has witnessed how much muscle Inuyasha has been gaining during his time with her grandfather and her many mentors. However, Inuyasha has also seen just how powerful Ayame has grown, for they sparred in jujitsu and kickboxing ever since they were children. Whenever Ayame pinned him, Inuyasha would smile at her because he always believed in her and always saw her as a strong, independent, and beautiful girl with the world at her feet. She would even prove herself to be just as strong as Inuyasha by being a capable weightlifter herself. Thanks to her main champion, Ayame has definitely reached her potential as a complete fighter who will always stay by Inuyasha’s side on and off the battlefield. This is also helped that after every battle, whenever their bodies are drenched in the blood of all their enemies, they would make steamy love to each other in their cave’s hot spring, while washing the blood off of their bodies, as a means to soothe each other from the turmoils of battle. Where Sesshoumaru is concerned, she might have had a silly crush on him, but she is so glad that he has remained her closest sparring partner and the most loyal supporter of their relationship. Through Sesshoumaru, she has also gained precision and strength in her attacks revolving around Tae Kwon Do, jujitsu, and judo. As Sesshoumaru has always been extremely supportive of Inuyasha and Ayame being together, he was also just as glad that his beloved sister-in-law is not only a mother to seven mighty sons but seven valorous daughters as well. 23 going on 24-year-old daughter Kiriko is a strong weightlifter, kickboxer, and huntress who is a major powerhouse. 22 going on 23-year-old triplet daughters Momoko, Makoto, and Mikoto are fierce and beautiful boxers, Tae Kwon Do specialists, and judokas who may be beauties but fight like total beasts. 21 going on 22-year-old triplet daughters Maya, Minako, and Meika are energetic and fearless boxers, kickboxers, and kenpo specialists who may be lovely on the outside until they start tackling opponents. It is indubitable that Ayame and her darling daughters are going to give felons a huge beating with their iron fists and fleet feet.

Let us wrap this up with some final words from Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame themselves of why they should never be underestimated. Take it away, you guys.

Sesshoumaru (flexing his bulging biceps and unleashing a snarl.): Do you want to feel my power? I have it right here. Should you be so brazen to challenge me or hurt my family, most especially my brother, my sister-in-law, my children, and my grandchildren as well as my adoptive brothers, my youngest sister-in-law, I will see to it that your execution and your eventual judgment day is swift and painless as possible. You should also do your best to think twice before launching an attack on me unless you desire your neck, back and/or any part of your body to be broken by my biceps’ sheer power or my own skill as The Western Lands’ most prized martial artist. As Lord of the Western Lands, you better not think about launching any unnecessary attacks against me or my family.

Inuyasha (flexing his bulging biceps and unleashing a roar.): So, you think you could take me and my family down, huh? Keh. Just so you know, I have faced many an opponent who dared to destroy my brother, my wife, my adoptive brothers, my kid sister-in-law, and all my wonderful kids and grandkids. You wanna know what happened to those lowlives? I snapped their necks in two and separated their heads from their bodies with my bare hands to keep them as ornaments for The Northern Yoro Tribe. By the way, before you try to outmuscle me, just remember that my biceps can squeeze you alive until you stop breathing and all your bones are broken. As leader of The Northern Yoro Tribe, I will see to it that our enemies will tremble and get crushed like the gnats they are.

Ayame (cracking her knuckles.): Do you think that just because I’m married to the The Northern Yoro Tribe’s leader and strongest warrior and have boundless respect and allegiance to The Lord of The Western Lands means that I do not have any agency? You are damn wrong. I am just as strong as my big brother-in-law and my husband, for they have challenged every aspect about me and I never looked back. I love my husband unconditionally. I cherish my older brother-in-law with all my heart. I consider my children and my grandchildren very precious. I care deeply about my brothers-in-law and my younger sister. So, don’t even think for one millisecond of hurting them. Because, as queen of the Northern Yoro Tribe, I will see to it that my fists show no mercy.

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the strongest fighters and the most powerful leaders of The Splendid Seven. Sesshoumaru’s sheer power as a complete martial artist and Lord of The Western Lands, Inuyasha’s mighty muscles as a super strong wrestler, boxer, and kickboxer and leader of The Northern Yoro Tribe, and Ayame’s incomparable combat prowess are reasons to ensure that you do not test their patience or how far they can go. Once you go deep into them, it is going to be over in a millisecond.

I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and always show strength for Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame, everybody.

Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise.
