Brunhilde’s Team is at the Wall in Netflix’s Record of Ragnarok. But thanks to the World’s Greatest Loser they manage an amazing win.
Netflix anime Record Of Ragnarokcenters on a tournament that Brunhilde, a valkyrie, devised during the millennial meeting between the gods to decide humanity’s fate. It is a tournament that pits man against god in a fight to the death. This seems like a win for the gods.
Brunhilde’s team failed to defeat Zeus, his pantheon, and his pantheon in the title tournament that was to determine the fate of humanity — survival or genocide depending on who won. Although the Valkyrie power-ups made humanity’s champions more powerful, they were not enough to overcome Zeus and his pantheon. Brunhilde is aware that it will take extra effort to win. Kojiro Sakaki might be the world’s worst loser, but he won an amazing victory thanks to a mysterious technique.

Kojiro’s repeated losses taught him how to win
Kojiro was not the greatest swordsman to have ever lived. Kojiro wasn’t a legend. This made the crowd nervous. Kojiro was unable to win a single battle against several proven warriors such as Musashi, so it seemed a bit foolish to rely solely on him. Musashi had killed him but he knew why Kojiro was chosen. His physical form was losing fights while his mind was storing information on how to win. After being a coward in his youth, Kojiro became obsessed with nature, animals, and energy, and started training himself.
Although he was skilled in the art of sword fighting, he still had to learn from the best. He would lose many duels against his mentor, dojo mates, and fighters from across the continent. All this so he could learn. Kojiro had a way to beat them, but he never actually implemented them. However, his former master visited his hut and found the marks on the boards. He can also sense fighters Kojiro “beat” in simulations. He would use his knowledge to build a matrix for them if he were to ever fight them. To take on new fighters, he could use the knowledge and techniques of other fighters.

Kojiro defeated Poseidon by Calculating his Moves
Kojiro was able, just by watching a fighter enter the arena, to identify any type of fighting. Kojiro was able to read Poseidon’s muscles and breathe when he entered the arena. Kojiro had predicted every Poseidon attack before he threw the first punch. He could duck, dodge, and counter every movement with precision.
When Poseidon unleashed his full fury, it seemed like hundreds upon hundreds of sea gods raining down their blows. Kojiro used his double swords, the souls Hrist, and Valkyrie (one representing her rage, one representing her calm) to sever Poseidon. The gods were stunned and the Valhalla arena was in awe as mankind became equal. It all happened because Record Ragnarok was the greatest loser.
