This isn't a chapter review or anything this is an appreciation of old guys in anime that can still kick some serious ass. I meant to create this earlier, but never got around to it. Now I've been inspired by Don Chinjao(the headbutting continent cracker) in the recent chapter to revisit this idea of mine.

Who's your favorite old guy in an anime/manga? In looks and age btw. I know there are countless anime where guys look 15 and are a thousand years old. I'm talking gray or white hair, wrinkles, and well past their prime. The whole nine yards.

More importantly, out of all out of them who do you think is the strongest? For the sake of argument guys who have died, but were badasses in their old age are still eligible here. So here's some guys I thought of that make this little battle royale feel free to suggest ones I may have missed (I haven't watched Fairy Tail or HunterXHunter so get off my back about the old guys in those.)

From One Piece obviously Monkey D. Garp, Silvers Rayleigh, Gan Fall, and Whitebeard. Gorosei don't qualify since they haven't done anything but talk so far(Sorry THT) and Sengoku doesn't meet the standards of gray hair and kicking ass. From Bleach, Head Captain Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto. From Naruto, the third hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi and the legendary sanin Jiraiya. From G Gundam Master Asia(he destroys mechs bare-handed.) From Dragonball, the original old dirty bastard, Master Roshi!
