Greetings, Splendid Seven devotees, martial arts aficionados, and fighting video game fans. Antoni here with another written entry focusing on Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specializing in the martial arts they do. I will say this once, and I will say this again. Practicing martial arts works better when two or more people are involved. Furthermore, overcoming opponents is more effective and enjoyable when accomplished in groups of two or three, thus uniting their collective efforts to give any and every opponent a well-deserved beating as well as a more beautiful triumph.
If you know my Splendid Seven AU headcanon, you would recognize that I have three platonic pairings of two, two platonic pairings of three, one romantic pairing of two, and one romantic pairing of three that I love and cherish all the same. From each pairing in martial arts form, I will expound on their strengths together, as I have made their individual strengths clear in previous submissions ad nauseam, and the combined attacks opponents need to look out for unless they want to suffer the physical ramifications of each pairing’s attacks. With that said, let us get ready to rumble and open up cans of whoop-ass together.
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha (BroTP): Mixed Martial Arts and Pankration
As the two powerful sons of Toga and InuKimi, Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are muscular power and strong virility personified. These two Alpha Male dog Yokai brothers stand above any competition as a formidable duo of mighty warriors. Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha would start off by giving their opponents an overhand punch and liver punch combo, with Inuyasha landing a double axe handle on their heads. Inuyasha would then capture their opponents with a body slam, an ankle lock, and a rear-naked chokehold, and Sesshoumaru would land ground-and-pounds and sprawls-and-brawls, thus reducing them to a bloodied mess.
Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta (BroT3): Professional Wrestling, Muay Boran, and Lethwei
Izayoi’s three sons are the definition of being strong together, considering how Shuran’s massive strength complements Hakkaku’s and Ginta’s quick reflexes. This hulking panther Yokai and his two younger wolf Yokai brothers define power in teamwork. Shuran would begin by picking up opponents and bending their bodies in a torture rack. While he does that, Hakkaku and Ginta would deliver headbutts, knee strikes, and elbow strikes galore. Once done, Shuran savagely drops their opponents to the ground, Hakkaku finishes them off with an elbow strike to the face, and Ginta an earthquake headbutt to bloodily silence them.
Ayame and Shunran (BroTP): Kyuk Too Ki and Shaolin Kung Fu
The Wolf Elder is surely fortunate to have two fierce and beautiful granddaughters in Ayame and Shunran. This formidable wolf Yokai warrior queen and her younger panther Yokai warrior mage sister demonstrate the importance of never judging a book by its cover. Ayame and Shunran would commence by delivering their opponents an uppercut, spinning backfist, spinning back kick, and double flying kick combo to disorient them. After that, Ayame would deliver a swift jab to the face and axe kick to the head followed by Shunran delivering finger strikes and palm strikes to the heart, thus paralyzing their opponents in cold blood.
Sesshoumaru and Shuran (BroTP): Mixed Martial Arts and Professional Wrestling
Chilling beastliness and crushing barbarism are the hallmarks that solidify Sesshoumaru and Shuran once they step into the caged ring. No executioner in the world could ever compare to the relentlessly cold-blooded brutality that Sesshoumaru and Shuran have to offer. First, Shuran lifts their opponents and squeezes them in a bearhug, thus making Sesshoumaru pummel them with overhand punches and hammer fists. Then, Shuran drops them to the ground to let Sesshoumaru unleash excruciating armbars and triangle chokes before Shuran launches them with a skull-smashing, bone-crushing piledriver for total body annihilation.
Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta (BroT3): Pankration, Muay Boran, and Lethwei
Muscular strength, metallic sturdiness, and malleable stamina unite Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta on and off the arena. There is no other trio who can ensure total destruction of their opponents than Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta unleashing an erupting volcano on them. Inuyasha first showers their opponents with hammer fists, jabs, and uppercuts then locks them in a rear-naked chokehold before Hakkaku and Ginta give them a barrage of headbutts, flying knees, and elbow strikes. Once done, Inuyasha delivers a sleeper hold, thus making Hakkaku give an elbow strike and Ginta a headbutt, to crush their tattered bodies.
Inuyasha and Ayame (OTP): Pankration and Kyuk Too Ki
Inuyasha’s magnificent muscles and Ayame’s ferocious fierceness amalgamate their super strength as an outstanding power couple. Once this couple sets foot into the arena, it is akin to watching a public execution unfolding before the spectator’s eyes. Inuyasha first delivers jabs, hooks, cross punches, uppercuts, liver punches, hammer fists, overhand punches, and a double axe handle to their opponents before locking them in a torture rack. While Inuyasha gives them a torture rack, Ayame leaps forth with jabs, hooks, uppercuts, Superman punches, knee strikes, soccer kicks, and an axe kick to damage their skulls and destroy their bones.
Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran (OT3): Muay Boran, Lethwei, and Shaolin Kung Fu
Hakkaku’s titanium tenacity and Ginta’s steel stamina mesh beautifully with Shunran’s amazing agility to solidify them as a vivacious power throuple. While these two wolf Yokai gentlemen can exude decorum to their Panther yokai lady love, they become executioners when faced with strong opponents. Hakkaku and Ginta initiate their battle by giving their opponents a series of elbow strikes, headbutts, shin kicks, and knee strikes before wrapping them in a clinch. Shunran then proceeds with finger strikes and nerve strikes to paralyze them and finishes everything off with a vicious leopard blow to their head to silence them.
The Splendid Seven’s main relationships in martial arts form solidify the importance that creating healthy communities can do while providing powerful opponents with great challenges as well as brutal beatdowns. Therefore, martial arts beatdowns work best when combatants join forces whether platonically or romantically. I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and train well, everybody.
