It seems like they should have either played up the magical aspect so that you had a sense of demons coming, or just simply ignored it and changed the ending (yes, I know the manga fans would have howled), but doing it halfway made the anime feel like it had multiple personality disorder. My vote is personally for the latter; at least from the view of somebody who's only seen the anime, it would have easily stood on its own without the supernatural aspects.
I just wish they had developed more on Battle Angel Alita as far as the anime goes. The producers called it quits after releasing 2 episodes (WTF right?). The manga is absolutely mind-blowing, one of the best futuristic-fighting manga out there jam-packed with science, physics, and most importantly EXPLANATIONS behind everything that goes on, it doesn't just make people pull bullshit abilities out of their asses :P
Not to mention the story is quite long and character development is awesome, addicting stuff for sure.
Ichigo vs Aizen (Where the 'Final' Getsuga Tensho is used) - Bleach
SSJ2 Gohan vs Perfect Cell - Dragon Ball Z / Kai
Kira vs Athrun - Gundam Seed
Mugen vs Three Brothers, Jin vs Kariya - Samurai Champloo
Took a while to find a half decent version. I guess il warn that their transformations are kind of suggestive. About 3:50 is when the fighting actually starts. But when fights last more than 5 seconds they are generally pretty epic in PSwG
Legend of Koizumi. It's an anime/manga about world leaders playing Mahjong...it's basically Yu-Gi-Oh but with George Bush and Hitler.
If you've never watched/read it, you need to get the FUCK out of this thread and take care of that.

Personally I like transformers series, especially movie 2
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." Muhammad Ali
Luciola Vs Cicada in Last Exile, a VERY wierd fight scene, from a fantastic series, even though it's not REALLY a fight scene per se, it still stuck with me as one of the most memorable I've seen in a LONG time.
the movement, music and Delphine.... detachement, all really stuck a cord with me.
also pretty much every fight scene in Puela Magi Madoka Magica was freakin EPIC, but the final fight between Homura and Walpurgis night was lolwutOTT
Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.
Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.

Note that Code Geass was the best anime I ever seen, the chills that anime gave me were beyond. But Code Geass has more mental battles than physical.

Far too many to list so I'll just mention a couple from Bleach.
Ichigo vs. Byakuya when he first learns his Bankai, then the hollow mask manifests when he's about to lose, friggin' awesome.
Ichigo vs. Ulquiorra when he blows a hole in Ichigo's chest and he resurrects as the bad ass horn dude.
Also, not a fan of the fight as a whole since it was over so quick but it was FUCKING EPIC when Ichigo shows up to finally fight Aizen and just grabs him by the face to move him mid-sentence while he's showing off
Ah also one of the most memorable for me is the "fight" in Elfen Lied where Lucy literally butchers Nana, ripping limbs off etc. Gave me chills because it was just like O.O (not to mention the scene with the kids in the classroom)
