Notes The 1st Competition, official name: 究極のサバイバルアタックSASUKE (literally Ultimate Survival Attack SASUKE) was the first ever SASUKE tournament, held in 1997 and aired as a special on Kinniku Banzuke. It was a the only indoor tournament in SASUKE history, held at the Tokyo Bay Colosseum. Several recurring competitors made their first appearance here including SASUKE All-Stars, Yamamoto Shingo and Yamada Katsumi. Other strong competitors emerged, such as Ōmori Akira, Hasegawa Ken, Miura Eiichi and Kane Kosugi. Not all, however, would stick around SASUKE all that long despite their seemingly high skill level.

Results-wise, 23 people cleared the First Stage, which remains the fourth most ever. Six cleared the Second Stage, while four cleared the Third Stage, including Kawashima Takayuki, who is still the youngest ever to do so at age 18. However, no one was close to achieving kanzenseiha.
