The Battle Angel Herself. Should've probably made this thread first because she's the titular character of Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita/Gunchar. I'll divide this respect thread between The Original series Battle Angel Alita, Battle Angel Alita: Last Order & Battle Angel Alita: Mars Chronicles. I feel like this will keep the feats into each respective part.

Alita from the original is mostly a high level street leveler, then by Last Order everyone's power levels get ridiculously increased, then so far in Mars Chronicles, power levels have been back to low levels. Mars Chronicles is the last part of the series but hasn't been completed yet.

As usual, I'm not gonna focus on powerscaling, just the feats. The only other respect thread I could find was one on naruto forums with no images because I'm sure all those links are dead.

Berserker Body

The Berserker body is the first combat body Alita is put in Battle Angel Alita. It is made of nanomachines called Berserker cells. The body can generate plasma and electromagnetic fields.

When unlocked, the Berserker body could absorb any kind of matter, transform its appearance depending on what the user wanted (like flight), and was single-mindedly focused on destroying a target. Capable of regeneration, it was nearly invulnerable to practically all conventional forms of attack thanks to its ability to manipulate electromagnetic fields and plasma that can go up to 15,000 degrees celsius and ball lightning at a temp. of many thousands of Kelvin.

Motorball Body

Motorball body Alita is weaker than her Berserker body. It was used for the motorball races, in which her legs have wheels on them to race on the track. Alita has her Damascus blade with her Motorball body.

After being reforged into a single blade, the serrations were replaced with a series of holes to conserve weight. This new blade was hard as diamond and could only be honed with high pressure water or supersonic waves. It consisted of rare metals, including scandium, yttrium and lutetium, and had patterns suggestive of Damascus steel.

TUNED body

No Caption Provided

Alita or A-1 received the TUNED body after becoming an agent of Tiphares. She was connected at all times via satellite to the Ground Investigation Bureau (GIB) and directed by an operator, who had the ability to provide a Pavlovian shock stimulus to her should she ignore orders. As the product of advanced Tipharean technology, the body had the ability to travel at supersonic speeds and withstand a great deal of damage. However, as a “soft” body supported by nanotechnology to create and maintain vital systems, the body could overheat and malfunction under extremely high temperature conditions. Nonetheless, the body was equipped with a variety of effective support weapons, many designed to look like insects.

With the TUNED Body Alita also bore permanent eye black on her face which was later included on her replicas and is still present in her Imaginos Body.

Alita has the greatest amount of weapons and equipment in her 10 years as a TUNED warrior.

Abilities & Skills

Alita is a Kuntsler, a practioner of the Martian Cyborg Martial Arts, Panzer Kunst.

  • Hertzer Hauen: A commonplace move which uses mechanical oscillations to fire high-frequency vibrations into the target upon physical contact, effectively incapacitating and destroying the brain or heart. One of Alita's most commonly used moves, the Hertza Haeon is a strike that delivers a high-frequency vibration to the victim, bypassing the victim's armour, and concentrating kinetic energy that, when used correctly, can be used to destroy or at least disrupt function of the brain or heart. It can be nullified with a vibration of the same wavelength.

  • Verschlag ("Partition" or "Box"): An initial Hertza Haeon-like strike that triggers a shock wave which bounces inside the body like a rubber ball before focusing in the extremities. The target may notice this as a ringing in their ears.

  • Hertza Nadel: This move targets the focal point of the Verschlag with a sharp blow generating explosive resonance with the surrounding material, achieving the destruction of the targeted segment.

  • Hertzer Fahren: The künstler fires a Verschlag upon the first contact with the target, then destroy the extremities while attacking the body in a single motion.

  • Geschoss Schlag: A supersonic punch, Alita's super punch applies electromagnetism for supersonic acceleration.

  • Ausser Stosse: A counter maneuver which redirects the kinetic energy of an attacking opponent back at them using a spin, adding to the momentum of the künstler's counterattack.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

  • Plasma Bissen: A split-second plasma jet used to create undetectable cuts and gouges in the opponent's body. Usually concealed as a punch, swipe, or parry. This attack is an original one, made up by Alita, and might be considered a Seinerweisen, or personal technique based on Alita's body's own construction.
  • Einzug Rüstungen: A technique used to match an opponent's rhythm and parry, then strike when the opponent drops their guard.

Alita has no problems fighting with one arm, no legs or even cutting or losing half her body. She's been a cyborg since childhood and has learned how to incorporate this in her fighting style.

Speed, Agility & Precision

This is the most important category of the entire series. Speed matters a lot in this series whether it's reaction speed, movement speed, fighting speed or more. Compared to nearly every manga I've read, BAA is actually hard-Sci-Fi when it comes to following our real world physics and such.

Even though many characters are supersonic & hyper-sonic in reaction, movement and/or fight speed they don't always fight this fast because they don't have to and because fights still follow the laws of physics.

Going too fast can make a character catch on fire, no one immediately goes from 0 to their top speed in an instant, most of the time if a fight is happening at supersonic speeds the author will show and make note of a sonic boom unless it's a character that has learned to move at supersonic speeds without making a sonic boom. There's a lot of details in the world and it's fights.

In her Berserker body She's fast enough to dodge one of Makaku's grind cutters as they we're going at 700km/h

She dodges as fast as the grind cutters which have a top speed of Mach 3 or 4

The Power of Alita's mind

Weaknesses

Alita's different bodies tend to have different weaknesses. Her Berserker body is the strongest while the other ones vary in weakness. Her motorball body is weaker than the TUNED body which is weaker than the Berserker body.

Tuned body doesn't have good durability against high caliber bullets. Here she gets shot by the TUNED rifle. The TUNED rifle was a 12.7mmsemi-automatic rifle[1] with an apparent bullpupdesign, since its large magazine was located behind the trigger. It was equipped with a small scope built into the handguard with a large muzzle brake. The front grip could be folded up, allowing it to be placed on a hard surface for stability.

The TUNED body got completely blown up by a bomb

Sharp enough swords like the Damascus blade can cut through her TUNED body and enough force can break her other body parts

The Berserker body is powerful due to it's Berserker cells but it is hard countered by anti-Berserker rounds and a collapser. Both items destroy the Berserker cells & body.

@tj849: I'm cautiously optimistic about the movie. The trailer already shows they don't get the tone of the manga and Alita's eyes look stupid but it's been delayed so we'll see what happens.
