** By analysis Sechs' fight against Alita counts too. Sechs has a Tuned body which is implied to be heavily damaged from fighting the other Tuneds, being held together by the belts around the body haphazardly repaired, with Alita noticing that it smells and sounds rusty. Alita meanwhile has an Imaginos body which is like a Berzerk body but saver. Despite that Sechs can manage to fight Alita to a stand still.

Alita meanwhile has an Imaginos body which is like a Berzerk Berserker body but saver. more stable and safe. Despite that that, Sechs can manage to fight Alita to a stand still.



** During the battle against the Wild Guns, because Alita is elsewhere and the bunnies are out of commission (due to the truama induced from the previous fight) Sechs has to fight a five man team that made it through to the quarterfinals (usually winning in a few seconds with a series of perfect headshots to boot) BY HIMSELF. To make it even more badass, he enters a Mexican standoff with the final gunman WITH AN EMPTY GUN. He wins by literally dodging a bullet at point blank range and shoving the gun barrel through the man's skull. The kicker lies within the fact that the gun wasn't even his to begin with ''"Here, you can have your armor piercing gun back!"''

** Sechs wins a game of RussianRoulette with a fully loaded revolver by knowing his skull can withstand the impact. He then shakes the flattend bullets out of his hair.

** As of Chapter 113 we got a retroactive new one for Sechs. We finaly got to see Sechs fighting a fellow Tuned and it only takes a few seconds. That is, they have supposedly identical bodies and fighting abilities, and the other Tuned doesen't have any injuries. CurbStompBattle all the same.
* Everything Zekka does qualifies as awesome but one that tops all the others happens at the end of his match against Venusian team. He turns a rampaging out-of-control mutant blob that threatens to absorb the whole station into a gigantic sakura tree... by karate chopping it very hard. It doesn't make sense in the context of the story and we are not given any explanation on how he did it[[note]]and GUNNM gives those for almost every ability we see[[/note]], were are fat out told it was miracle. Read the previous sentence again: ''Zekka can cause miracles by hitting things really hard''. Nobody should be surprised that he is considered the strongest in the universe.
** Though there might be a bit of FridgeBrilliance behind it. Before Zekka hits the mutant, Gargantua (which is allready part plant), it closes over Igrek, Zekka's genetically-altered clone, who was genetically designed to fuse with the plant monster and was holding onto his dead android lover who was killed by a mutated rose dart. Now, remember that in a previous fight, Zekka was able to transfer energy into his teammate Touji, turning him into a living projectile that was capable of overloading and destroying Anomaly. Zekka didn't karate-chop the monster into becoming a sakura tree. He blasted it full of energy while Ingrek fused with it, giving him enough juice to mutate himself and the brainless Gargantua into a beautiful and non-lethal creature (overcoming their both destiny of being nothing more than killers).

* [[BookDumb Despite not being the sharpest knife in the drawer]], Gally's gender-confused replica Sechs gets a few of those throughout Last Order. Among these is a scene in volume 4, taking out heavily-armed trained soldiers with a 9mm handgun while stuck in a 5-inch-tall body, which was only designed as a communication device.

* Of all things, ''Deckman 100'' managed to look pretty badass moments earlier. upon being delivered the remains of Alita, literally nothing more than a chip and a crystal, he doesn't even hesitate before acting. His solution? Load the remains into a bazooka and make a very big show of firing them at Sechs, [[BatmanGambit luring Tunguska into intercepting it]], which in turn triggered Alita's restoration out of Tunguska's body.
