A Kengan Annihilation Tournament (拳願絶命トーナメント, Ken-gan Zetsumei Tōnamento) is an influential tournament that is held to decide who will become the new chairman of the Kengan Association. The following contents of this article detail the most recent Kengan Annihilation Tournament that occurred in Kengan Ashura.


This Kengan Annihilation Tournament was created by Katahara Metsudo in order to determine who would take the seat of chairman of the Kengan Association.[1] The CEO whose fighter wins the tournament would not become the chairman; instead, the winning CEO would decide who in the Kengan Association becomes the next chairman. The winner is of course free to choose themself.[2] However, if the CEO who sponsored the tournament does not become chairman, then they would undergo liquidation and lose their company as a result.[3]

Any member of the Kengan Association was allowed to enter the tournament, however, there was a ¥5 billion entry fee to ward off any old rabble from getting in.[4] Furthermore, each company may submit only a single fighter. However, subsidiary companies count as different businesses from their parent company, and are thus allowed entries of their own, even if their parent company is already competing. This means that companies could use their subsidiaries as extra entries.

Preliminaries

Initially, 151 corporations entered into the tournament ready to fight for the chairman's seat. To quickly trim down the competition, Chairman Katahara sent out 28 special invitations to the highest-ranking corporations of the entering Kengan Association members, including himself, whose fighters have the best combat records. These members would board a luxurious cruise ship, the S.S. Kengan.[5]

The remaining 123 corporations were made to board a rusty old barge, the S.S. Annihilation. On this barge their affiliated fighters would fight it out in a battle royale for the remaining five places in the official tournament.[6]

The preliminaries had a time limit ending at sunrise; if more than five fighters remained at sunrise, all would be disqualified. If at any time only five fighters remain, the preliminaries end immediately and five remaining fighters will move on to the Main tournament.

During the preliminaries, contact between the fighters and their employer is prohibited.[6]

Fifteen minutes after the preliminaries had begun, the five fighters that came out victorious from the preliminaries were:[7][8]

With the conclusion of the preliminaries, the five successful fighters and their bosses would cross a bridge over to the cruise ship, where they would ride the rest of the way to the main tournament.

During the boat ride, there were two rules: 1. The bracket for the tournament would not be decided until after the ship docked at the tournament location. 2. Physical conflict between fighters prior to the start of the tournament was strictly forbidden. There was a hidden meaning in these rules; while fighters could not fight each other, there was no rule against a fighter and a non-fighter fighting each other. If the other person was victorious against a current Kengan fighter, they might convince the CEO to hire them to fight in the tournament in the defeated fighters place.

Some CEO's took advantage of this, hiring outsiders to take down and take the places of various Kengan fighters. They would fight for the bosses of the fighters they defeated, but only if said bosses agreed to make their new fighters primary employer the new chairman if they won.

Main Tournament

The main tournament was held on "Ganryu Island" over the span of five days. On the first day, all sixteen matches of the first round were held, and then the following day a break was given. On the third day, all eight matches of the second round were held, with another break given the day after. Finally, on the fifth day, the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and the finals were held.[9]

To determine the bracket order, CEO's would get to choose their own placement in the bracket. A special slot machine was used to determine what order in which the CEO's would take turns choosing. When the slots started spinning, the player would push the stop button repeatedly, causing the nine slots to stop spinning one by one. The higher the number a player got on the machine, the sooner they would take their turn choosing their fighters bracket placement.

Chairman Katahara's fighter, Kanoh Agito, the Fang of Metsudo, who was recognized as the strongest fighter in the entirety of the Kengan Association, was already placed in bracket number 32.
