I'd like us to compile a list of ridiculous super moves. I'm not talking about things like the Hadouken, which is unrealistic but apparently useful in combat. The criteria for inclusion is two-fold. First, the move must be visually spectacular and/or complicated. Second, it needs to achieve a combat effect that is virtually identical to something the fighter can achieve in a much simpler way OR be completely useless except in way-too-specific situations. Some of Gotenks' named attacks spring to mind, but please try to think outside the box and not stick to the same old stuff. Also, feel free to discuss whether something does or does not belong on the list.

Example:

Some characters like Kyle Rayner have a natural visual flourish to their powers- and a giant samurai mecha ring construct isn't any *worse* at catching a falling girder than an oversized baseball mit or generic sphere of green light. However, creating a gun to fire projectiles is demonstrably less efficient than just shooting things with the ring.

The thing that springs to mind first is from the movie Mystery Men where Invisible Boy can turn invisible only when no one is looking. Even he can't be looking.

Definitely Johnny Cage's fatalities from MK 9. In his first one, he punches his opponent's head off, which would kill them instantly, but then he rips their entire body apart, slams it on the ground and catches the opponent's head in his other hand.

Don't even get me started on the other one where he chops his opponent's head in half.

Infact, now I think about it, every MK fatality is stupid. But then again that is the point of fatalities.

I disagree. That actually serves a purpose that can't really be accomplished by any other means. I don't know a lot about WW but i never thought she was actually bulletproof, and/or able to dodge bullets. If I'm wrong about that, then I suppose.

I'd also like to throw in Colossus and Wolverine's fast-ball special. Its cool and it gets him from a to b, but throwing your teammate at as a human projectile isn't the best strategy. If you miss then he may be hundreds of yards away from the battle. Also the landing. Plus, if you toss him at your opponent, couldn't said opponent just move slightly one way or the other? Its not like wolvie can adjust his trajectory mid flight. And its kind of unneeded since Colossus could always throw a bolder or something else. Unless the bad guy is in the air, virtually immobile, and is impervious to being hit with all things other then Wolverine, you're wasting effort. So it be great if you had to take down an Adamantium Blimp, but outside that there would always be easier ways to get it done

She's capable of brawling with Superman, a being whose punches shatter planets. I'm sure a couple of bullets wouldn't be able to hurt her in the slightest.

I can see what you mean about the fastball. It seems too easy to dodge to be practical.

Actually bullets really do hurt her. They shouldn't but apparently the writers like it.

It's not like Superman doesn't hold himself back, so being able to fight with him doesn't trasnlate into "impervious to everything".

Also, if someone throws a rock at you it probably won't kill you, or hurt you, but you still put your hands up to make sure it doesn't hit you. Because people don't like things hitting them. Wonder Woman might not like the feel of bullets impacting her skin.

Superman slammed her from the sun back to the Earth. Surviving a blow like that pretty much means she should be completely invulnerable to bullets.

Except she frequently stops fighting to block bullets with her bracelets. At that point she's sacrificing significant combat efficiency in order to do a completely unnecessary action.

I think pro wrestling is predicated entirely on ridiculous moves.

"Oh! It's the Dragonpuncture Neckbrace! I don't see how The Mitigator can stand much more of this, Skeeve! It looks like he's reaching for the rope... and... OH NO Baka Bushido just gave him the Sushi Slap-Chop! It looks like it's all over for The Lawful One..."

Many of these moves didn't exist at the time this was filmed. Now they all do.

It is pretty ridiculous to answer his question. My question is: Does he have a giant fishy mohawk or is that a badly drawn motion blur.
