3 Specific Kinds of Anime

I'm looking for 3 specific kinds of anime below:

1) That the main character has competitions with other characters and continuously faces stronger and stronger opponents but keeps winning anyway. (Something like Saki, for example.)

2) That the main character has defensive abilities (as in battles or magic battles) so strong that pretty much no one can touches him/her. (I can't think of one. Kaze no Stigma??)

3) That the anime itself keeps breaking the 4th wall like nobody's business. (Such as Moetan.)

Thanks. Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

The series must satisfy all three or a specific series per requirement?

The mangaka is even a character ... well sorta ...

It's not a personal favorite, but I seem to recall that Hayate the Combat Butler broke the fourth wall just about every week.

I can think of an anime that fits the first two:
To Aru Majustu no Index

As for the third, look in the article here:

Wow thanks. I'll slowly check out all that are suggested here.
More please.

By the way, the breaking 4th wall thingy... If possible I want the anime to do that at least to a degree equal to or more than what is done in Moetan, because in Moetan it's really...... yeah... the 4th wall almost doesn't exist.

No. Separate. Individually.
It would be a bit too difficult for all 3 to appear together in one anime I suppose.

Have you watched Seitokai no Ichizon? That might fit the bill. The first scene is basically the characters trying to decide what the show should be about, and the rest of the show is dedicated to parodying everything. Also, except for Kurimu, all of the characters have some sort of otaku-like interest.

I'll second Seitokai no Ichizon for this.

Thanks.
I'd come across Seitokai no Ichizon before, and I'd watched quite a bit, jumped here and there. But even though the jokes are nice and the 4th-wall-breaking isn't bad too, I don't like the character of the... characters.

Gintama is a no-no for me. The primary reason is its number of episodes (and my lack of interest in historical elements).

By the way, Hikaru no Go and Shion no Ou are totally great. I feel they would remind me of Saki when I watch them.

Hellsin Ultimate perhaps? No 4th wall breaking but he's pretty much invincible and fighting stronger enemies every time.

1) What you're looking for is pretty much this trope:

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...lgorithmOfEvil

2) When you say untouchable do you mean a character who almost never gets hit at all or a character who does get hit but is so tough that s/he is unfazed by it? Alucard from Hellsing and Dante from Devil May Cry fit the latter and also have regenerative powers making them close to invincible.

Dragonball Z - The Character Goku is what your looking for.

To Aru Majutsu no Index - Well the main character doesnt get stronger, but he does face stronger opponents

Magical Lyrical Nanoha - The heroine of this series starts off as your average citizen, but becomes extremely powerful later on.

Seconding Hikaru no Go - Main Character starts out like your average person, then becomes great.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi - The narrator slaughters the 4th wall....

Thanks all of you.

Something as classic as Dragon Ball (Z) is something I'm all too familiar with. I even have the entire collection of its episodes. So yeah I already have it.

I finished watching Nanoha as well. All 3 seasons.

To Aru Majutsu no Index...... I watched it, but I didn't like the male lead.

For other suggested series, SOME of them are of themes that I don't like, so I won't be taking them. But still thanks.

Sounds like Casshern Sins. Casshern is practically invincible.

Hmmm.....
I've just went and read about it, and it seems fine to me. And there also isn't any element that I don't like either.

I'll put it into my list. Thanks.

As for (2)
Balsa in Moribito (yet she's never portrayed as "superhuman" in any way, just very skilled)
The Apothecary in Bakeneko/Mononoke
Guin in Guin Saga
Kurasu in Noein
Nijuu Mensou in Nijuu Mensou no Musume

Do immortals count? Then
Spoiler for immortality:

By the way, I already have Seirei no Moribito.
