Hi, I'm trying to figure out the meaning of this symbol. After a lot of research, I found the outer character means "Fight" but can't seem to find the full meaning.

 

Many thanks!!!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

 

This a traditional variant of the character 斗 dòu 。 This is the version you have

If you notice the vertical strokes are not actually attached to the 王.

It does mean fight, struggle, compete, contend.

@Publiusfrom your link above does this mean that what the OP found was the kanji (Japanese character)?

Yes, very likely.

Just let me point out that the whole character 鬪 being a variant form of the "outer character" 鬥 and having the same meaning is a rare case and shouldn't be expected of in other characters.

Close, but the Japanese standard codepoint is

, which features 門.
