The Strongest Man in the World (地上最強の男, Chijō Saikyō no Otoko) is the 1st episode in Rokka no Yuusha. It first aired on July 4, 2015.
A mysterious man named Adlet Mayer came to Piena to prove himself in front of the Goddess of Fate in order to become a Brave. He interrupted the semifinal match between Batoal and Quato in the holy tournament that chooses Braves, proclaiming to be the "Strongest Man in the World". The Royal Guards tried to stop Adlet but he took them out. Afterwards, he fought the two warriors and incapacitated them both before being captured by more guards and thrown into jail.
While in jail, a maid sneaked inside to meet Adlet. She was impressed by his fight and asked him about his fighting style, philosophy, and his goal: to become one of the Six Flowers of the Brave. Adlet replied that he believes he will become a Brave, one of the six chosen warriors to fight the Demon God, and that he wishes to fight alongside Princess Nashetanya, if she were to be chosen as a Brave. He is then moved to an isolated prison cell in a pit.
For many days and nights, Adlet remained in the dark pit, with barely any food and water. Some weeks later, the Braves were chosen and Adlet received the Crest of the Six Flowers on his right hand. The maid arrived, revealed to be the Princess much to Adlet's surprise, and rescued him from his cell. Nashetania showed him her own Crest - just below her collarbone on her chest. She freed him from his cell at the expense of her own soldiers, trapping them in the same pit they had thrown Adlet in. They both fled from Piena and began heading west on horseback towards the Land of the Howling Demons to meet the other Braves and defeat the Demon God.
