Also referred to as the "Shounen Competitive" subgenre; the most popular shounen series generally fit into this action-oriented category

Although the name of this "genre" or trope has never solidified, the concept is familiar to all. In many shounen series, a plot pattern appears: the main character encounters a new rival, is defeated by the rival, trains and learns something about himself or his rival, and then defeats that rival.

This is often referred to as the "shounen tournament" or "shounen competition" and can refer to physical battles (Bleach, Naruto), sports ( Captain Tsubasa, Eyeshield 21), other games (Yu-Gi-Oh, Hikaru no Go), or even intellectual battles (Death Note).
