Over the last decade, battle royales have become increasingly popular in the gaming community. Though beginning with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, there have been many shooters just as popular — if not more.
Fortnite is an exceptional example of this, especially since the battle royale curiously integrates crossover characters to optimize its widespread appeal. The game features Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and even Naruto. By identifying anime characters who would achieve a Fortnite victory royale without using their powers, it becomes easier to gauge which potential future skins might realistically fare the best.
10 Snipe Is A Superb Marksman (My Hero Academia)
Snipe is a superb marksman and professional hero in My Hero Academia. Serving as a teacher for Class 1-A, his position speaks highly of his potential in combat.
Perhaps Snipe's greatest advantage is his accuracy and ability to think quickly. Seconds after arriving at the U.A. training grounds, he shot Shigaraki several times before Shigaraki could use his "Decay" quirk. In a battle royale, Snipe would be able to adapt and reliably land his shots. Such skills would prove especially invaluable with sniper rifles against unprepared opponents.
9 Tenten Understands How To Make The Best Use Of Her Weapons (Naruto)
Naruto's Tenten knows how to make the most of her tools and swap between them in the heat of battle. Though without any impressive ninjutsu or taijutsu, Tenten's mastery of weapons would adapt to Fortnite much better than her Konoha 11 peers.
Subsequently, Tenten would get a better feel for guns faster than any other shinobi from Naruto. Since Tenten was one of the few people to identify Madara's infinite tsukuyomi, it follows that she's also acutely aware of her surroundings. This would allow her to detect snipers and find cover accordingly.
8 Yujiro Is A Physically Imposing Menace (Baki)
Like most traditional anime characters, Yujiro from Baki does not rely on special powers in order to succeed. Instead, he depends solely on the strength and resilience of his own mortal body.
Yujiro is as fearless as he is ruthless; this would allow him to engage enemy players in close quarters. Between his natural tenacity and the game's given shields, he'd likely eliminate his confused adversaries before they had a chance to react. Fighting his entire life would also be another asset contributing to the man's odds of success.
7 Usopp Is One Of The Most Proficient Snipers Alive (One Piece)
One Piece's Usopp is a legendary sniper in service to the Straw Hat Pirates. His skills are so superb that he can shoot enemies from miles away even without having a direct line of sight on them.
Additionally, Usopp's cowardice may actually play in his favor. He'd procure a weapon, allow the other combatants to fight each other, and hide until the remaining survivors are considerably weakened. From there, he would pick the remaining opponents off, with shields and health kits to spare.
6 Gabi Is A Fearless Warrior Candidate With An Affinity For Firearms (Attack On Titan)
Gabi Braun from Attack On Titan may only be a child, but she's demonstrated an impressive capacity to fight. For example, she stormed a trench by herself, correctly anticipating that her enemies wouldn't shoot her to give the Marleyans an advantage.
Perhaps Gabi's greatest skill is her familiarity with her heavy sniper rifle. She has never missed a shot even against fast-moving opponents, such as Eren in Paradis or Floch during the battle for the port. Should Gabi hunker down with the right weapon, she'd win a victory royale with relative ease.
5 Netero Has Excellent Reflexes, Patience & Experience (Hunter X Hunter)
Netero from Hunter x Hunter possesses the qualities of a winner — even without his Nen. He is extremely patient and competitive and he has such superb reflexes that he could fend off Meruem, who in turn killed an entire room of people in the blink of an eye.
While Netero may not have explicit familiarity with guns, his aforementioned reflexes ensure that most enemies will never be able to hit him. Conversely, he could either fire back at them or engage in a melee fight.
4 Death Gun Is At His Best In The Gaming World (Sword Art Online)
Sword Art Online's Death Gun is at his best in the gaming world. A former member of Aincrad's "Laughing Coffin" guild, he specializes in player-killing.
Death Gun is a gamer who proved so exemplary at his craft that he posed a threat to Kirito — who in turn was so skilled that he defeated Heathcliff and overcame a challenge Sugou designed to be impossible. Death Gun's extensive experience with virtual firearms guarantees at least 10 kills before achieving his victory royale.
3 Mine Is At Her Best When Endangered (Akame Ga Kill!)
Though Akame ga Kill!'s Mine may not have access to her traditional weapon in Fortnite, her ability to adapt to dangerous situations remains. Mine's Imperial Arms increased in potency proportional to how much danger she was in.
Like Gabi from Attack On Titan, Mine has seldom missed a shot with her rifle. This would make her a proficient user of heavy weapons, breaking shields and health alike in a matter of seconds. So long as Mine kept at least a mid-ranged distance from her opponents, she'd be able to put her gifts to use.
2 Spike Spiegel Wiped Out An Entire Mercenary Army By Himself (Cowboy Bebop)
When committed, Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop is a force of nature. He took out Vicious and the Syndicate organization using only a few handguns and grenades. Though Spike got mortally wounded in the process, this wouldn't be an issue in a world where he could return to full health with a decent med-kit.
It follows that Spike could land in a high population area, wipe out everything in his path, and use the stolen loot in order to better equip himself. Afterward, he would heal whatever damage he took from fighting.
1 Yami Yugi Is The Undisputed King Of Games (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Yu-Gi-Oh!'s Yami Yugi, the spirit inside the Millennium Puzzle, is the undisputed king of games. Using his tactical mind, he outsmarted all opponents in order to save his friends and secure his title.
Though most proficient at card games, Yami has shown an ability to adapt when necessary. He defeated Mokuba in a rigged game of "Capsule Monsters," outsmarted gangsters in a graffiti match, and even took down armed mercenaries sent by Kaiba. It would only take a few seconds for Yami to figure out Fortnite's rules before exploiting them to his advantage.
