Fist of the North Star is also known for the fact that it is one of the utter epitomes of being badass.

Standing in the Battledome

The verse has several at least small town level+/town level+ characters and city level/island level for the upper high tiers and top tiers, with hypersonic+ and MHS speed.

They also have several deadly superhuman martial art techniques which are considered to be broken (especially the ultimate Hokuto Shinken technique, Muso Tensei) which can ignore conventional durability or can pretty much knock out, or inflict massive damage or even fully destroy their opponents, when they connect.

 As a verse, they're above the likes of Katekyo Hitman Reborn and Hunter x Hunter.
