Emperors of Annihilation
This piece of Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha fan art is dedicated to forever-a-fangirl, crystaltoys, mattwilson83, SugarBubbles2000, crystaltoys, forever-a-fangirl-14, and M-Skirvin who celebrated their birthdays ranging from yesterday until today. So, I wish you wonderful birthdays as well as a lot of love, joy, prosperity, and abundance in your lives as artists and as people. This is is also dedicated to everybody who is thoroughly invested in Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s competitive brotherhood. Sit back, relax, and appreciate how complete martial artists such as Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha can use their skills in grappling, striking, clinching, and taking their opponents down so effectively and with all of their might, strength, power, fierceness, and fortitude.
(The Splendid Seven’s elaborate cave home gym. Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s dojo is adorned with two giant Makiwaras and a huge silver block in the centre. Sesshoumaru gives his Makiwara a barrage of knife hands, uppercuts, hooks, jabs, cross punches, reverse punches, roundhouse kicks, front kicks, shin kicks, knee strikes, and elbow strikes. Inuyasha, on the other hand, gives his Makiwara a barrage of uppercuts, reverse punches, jabs, hooks, cross punches, front punches, side kicks, spinning back kicks, roundhouse kicks, elbow strikes, and shin kicks. With every punch, kick, and strike the brothers do, their Makiwaras resound and reverberate so intensely. Sesshoumaru’s finishing move is a jab, hook, cross punch, roundhouse kick, spinning back kick combo, while Inuyasha’s finishing move is an uppercut, jab, hook, reverse punch, backfist, spinning back kick combo which dent their respective Makiwaras despite still standing strong. Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha sense somebody is coming, as they turn intensely to the audience ready to launch an attack.)
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha: EYAAAAAAH!!!!!!
(Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha stand erect from their stance and put their fists to their side.)
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha (bowing down): Osu!
Sesshoumaru: Welcome to our humble dojo.
Inuyasha: We want you to feel right at home.
Sesshoumaru: Just so you know, my dear brother and I have been bearing a formidable sense of brotherhood, comradeship, and camaraderie from infancy to childhood to adolescence to adulthood. We have been unbreakable ever since, and we have even passed that camaraderie down to the people we are happy to call our family.
Inuyasha: My awesome brother and I have always made it our duty to honour and respect our family, our dojo, and our friends. Plus, I am just as pumped up to spar with Sesshoumaru every single waking day because we respect and care for each other, and we always push each other to be the best fighters that we can be.
Sesshoumaru: Every martial arts tournament has made us stronger, more determined, and more honoured to encounter various warriors from different backgrounds.
Inuyasha: And a good number of them have become our friends.
Sesshoumaru: However, make no mistake. Neither our dojo nor our family is to be taken for granted let alone besmirched. Moreover, you dare not dishonour me, my brother, our adoptive brothers, our father, our mother, our adoptive mother, our grandfather-in-law, my brother’s wife, our younger sister-in-law, our children, and our grandchildren because we have invested our hearts and souls to establish our home.
Inuyasha: In short, any harm done to me, my brother, and all our family is harm and shame inflicted on our dojo. Don’t think for one nanosecond that you could just waltz in here and vandalise our abode because my bro and I got eyes and ears everywhere. Yeah, I said it. So, I would be really careful if I were in your shoes.
Sesshoumaru: Little brother, why don’t we demonstrate to our viewers what would happen if invaders or vandals dared to besmirch our dojo and our family.
Inuyasha: Sure thing, big bro.
(Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha approach the huge silver block, go behind it, turn to the audience, and bow.)
Sesshoumaru: Let this be a lesson on pain.
Inuyasha: And punishment.
Sesshoumaru: Should you be so brazen to vandalise our dojo, violate our family’s good name, and incite any form of violence against me and my brother…
(Sesshoumaru gets into his Ansatsuken stance prepared to fight, while a demonic aura radiates around him, glowing red.)
Inuyasha: And if you think it’s okay for you to hurt my brother, my wife, our adoptive brothers, my little sister-in-law, our parents, my grandpa-in-law, our kids, and our grandkids…
(Inuyasha also gets into his Ansatsuken stance also prepared to fight, while a demonic aura radiates around him, glowing red.)
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha: We’re gonna…Haaah…..
(Sesshoumaru pulls his left fist back, while Inuyasha’s pulls his right fist back.)
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha: TOH! YAH! HAH! CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU CHU! HWAH YAH! GRRR! RAH! YAH! HAH! HYAH! Haaaaaah…….YAAAAAHHH!!!!!
(Sesshoumaru throws a left punch, while Inuyasha throws a right punch on the silver block. Both brothers proceed to give the silver block a flurry of jabs before giving it one huge jab, a straight punch, an uppercut, a flying kick, an axe kick, a hammer punch, and a massive straight punch, thus destroying the huge silver block to smithereens. As soon as they are done destroying the huge silver block with their barrage of punches and kicks, the aura dissipates, and they are back to normal.)
Sesshoumaru: We hope we made our point clear.
Inuyasha: Don’t even try to mess with us because we’ll be out to take you down.
Sesshoumaru: Until then, we wish you well on your path to becoming a strong warrior.
Inuyasha: And we hope you can train with us real soon.
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha (bowing down): Osu!
I have saved the best for last when it comes to martial arts tournament attires revolving around the match between The Splendid Seven versus Ulrich Wernerstein and his bodybuilder goons. This time it is the Inu Brothers who shall take centre stage. 40 going on 41-year-old Sesshoumaru and 39 going on 40-year-old Inuyasha are living proof that they are warriors who never surrender even when the chips are down. This is also reflected on their main martial art which is Taisho-Style Ansatsuken which combines Shotokan Karate, Kyokushin Karate, Goju-Ryu Karate, Shorin-Ryu Karate, Shito-Ryu Karate, Taekwondo, Hapkido, Pankration, Ancient Greek Wrestling, Ancient Greek Boxing, Judo, Japanese Jujitsu, Brazilian Jujitsu, and Kapu Kuialua. This means that both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are extremely lethal when it comes to their mastery of this particularly extreme hybrid martial art. Furthermore, the Inu Brothers are truly dangerous fighters who can inflict a multitude of damage to their opponents regardless if they stand, go on the ground or go close contact.
Sesshoumaru’s outfit is a combination of Ryu Hoshi and Kazuya Mishima, for he has Ryu’s karate gloves as well as Kazuya’s foot guards and karate gi pants flame design. Sure, I did go a bit crazy with the red and gold flame design, but this demonstrates how fierce and formidable Sesshoumaru is as an upstanding Ansatsuken practitioner known for his deadly precision and brutal takedowns.
Inuyasha’s outfit is totally reminiscent of Ken Masters and Paul Phoenix, thus combining the red gi pants with the black karate gloves and the black foot guards. Not only does Inuyasha fit that attire so well, but he does also possess Ken’s charisma and Paul’s toughness to a tee, thus making him an outstanding Ansatsuken practitioner known for his brute strength and lethally powerful blows.
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are lord high emperors when it comes to inflicting insurmountable collateral damage to their opponents by virtue of their punches, kicks, grapples, clinches, and strikes. Attempting to combat them is akin to signing your own death warrant. You have been warned.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and always be prepared to kick butt, everybody.
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha from Inuyasha belong to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise.
