Anime is fantastic on its own, but chatting with other anime lovers online or in person may dramatically enhance the experience. Some of the anime fandom’s longest-running debates revolve on whether some characters are more powerful than others, or who would win in a fight. While anime can convey a wide variety of stories to englobe almost any genre of fiction, combat-focused anime are among the most popular and commercially successful. As a result, it’s no surprise that fan discussions regarding which character is the strongest are common. The strongest characters in anime can be ranked when they are at their most powerful and capable. These are without a doubt some of the most powerful characters in all of anime.
82. Light Yagami – Death Note
If Light Yagami, the main character of the edge-of-your-seat anime Death Note, were to fight any of these other anime characters in a direct flight, he would be overpowered in an instant. Because of his brilliant mind and use of the lethal Death Note, he can destroy anyone in any way he wants as long as he knows their complete name.
In Death Note, Light effortlessly kills a large number of people and defeats practically everyone who attempts to figure out his evil scheme. With these supernatural abilities, Light is capable of defeating almost any other anime character with ease.
81. Ruby Rose – RWBY
Ruby Rose is one of the newest anime characters, courtesy to Rooster Teeth’s successful series, yet others believe she isn’t even the strongest character in her own series. At first, Salem appeared to be the rightful owner of this accolade.
Ruby Rose possesses her own type of super speed, is a scythe expert, and has magical silver eyes that can freeze foes. She may lack the magic of nemesis Salem, but she has something Salem lacks: room to grow. Ruby is still learning how to achieve difficult feats, making her a powerful opponent whether she’s against Grimm or other Huntsmen.
80. Kenshiro – Fist Of The North Star
Kenshiro, master of the Hokuto Shinken, lives in a post-apocalyptic world after the nuclear war of 199X and the death of Ryuken, battling those who prey on the poor and vulnerable left. He has immense strength, an extraordinarily fine combat sense, and the ability to finish any opponent if he hits the right pressure areas.
While he doesn’t have as much of a character arc as other anime characters and doesn’t get much stronger over the course of his series, he is still a strong opponent who can defeat anyone if they let their guard down for even a moment.
79. Guts – Berserk
Guts, also known as the Black Swordsman, is a formidable warrior who uses his gigantic Dragon Slayer sword, prosthetic limb with a secret cannon, and pain-suppressing armor to defeat incredibly powerful demons.
Guts has executed many demons like a man in a possessed trance and has even succeeded in butchering gods throughout his mission to hunt down his former friend Griffith, albeit his deeds are better seen in the Berserk manga than in the anime. Despite the fact that he possesses no supernatural abilities, he represents the pinnacle of humanity and is capable of defeating even the most powerful adversaries.
78. Baki Hanma – Baki The Grappler
Baki Hanma is a massively muscular adolescent whose single ambition is to defeat his father, Yujiro Hanma, the world’s strongest living thing. Baki puts his body through regular training by putting himself in perilous scenarios.
He fights innumerable masters of various combat methods, including Pickle, a caveman who has killed and eaten T-Rexes without the use of weapons in his prehistoric life, and is one of the most blatantly superhuman characters in the entire manga. Baki’s incredible power stems entirely from his dedication to perfecting both his physique and fighting skills, making him one of anime’s most fearsome martial artists.
77. Edward Elric – Fullmetal Alchemist
Edward Elric is a powerful young man who developed a natural grasp of alchemy after tragically losing his right arm and left leg while attempting to resurrect his mother. With his alchemical powers, he can change the geography of any battlefield and turn practically any substance into a weapon, complementing his varied fighting style.
He can go toe to toe with homunculi and even beat a god-like figure into oblivion thanks to his talents. Despite the fact that he relinquishes his powers at the end of Fullmetal Alchemist, Edward could outperform just about any other anime character at his peak.
76. Sakura Kinomoto – Cardcaptor Sakura
It may appear implausible that a ten-year-old girl could take on any of anime’s powerful warriors, but Sakura is far more powerful than she appears. She’s charged with recapturing a deck of magical cards after mistakenly unleashing them, and she becomes a sorceress in her own right.
Sakura’s own magic is so powerful in the sequel Clear Card series where she rewrites the cards throughout the series. She can enhance the cards, make them stronger, or create her own with her magic. Nevertheless, she’s one of the youngest Magical Girls in anime, therefore she lacks the ruthlessness older rivals have.
75. Akame – Akame Ga Kill
Akame, the series’ title character, has spent much of her life studying to be a deadly assassin. She may have superior hand-to-hand combat skills than the majority of anime characters, but that is not enough to place her among the best of the best.
Akame’s reflexes and quickness are so quick that her opponents can hardly touch her in combat. In fact, in the original manga series, only one individual ever hits a home run. If that wasn’t enough, Akame is an extremely skilled master swordswoman who wields a mystical poisoned blade that kills anyone she comes into contact with.
74. Inuyasha – InuYasha
The demi-god Inuyasha is a feudal Japanese warrior capable of slaying any human or demonic foe who stands in his way. Inuyasha is the most powerful half-demon, the son of a human noblewoman named Izayoi, and her dog demon lover, Tōga. Tōga was a powerful and respected demon who governed the Western Country of Japan. Inuyasha’s power develops throughout the anime as he learns new mystical transformations and knowledge to use his shape-shifting sword.
His battle skill is practically unequaled, and he and his mystical blade are an almost unstoppable force, absorbing his opponent’s energy and turning it against them.
73. Sōsuke Aizen
Aizen served as a lieutenant in the Fifth Division during the Pendulum Saga, which took place 100 years before the events of the narrative, under Captain Shinji Hirako, who would later become the Vizard’s leader.
Aizen, one of the greatest anime characters of all time, was already working with Kaname Tsen and Gin, a young child at the time but a skilled assassin: Aizen had tried to use various Shinigami for his experiments but all of his test subjects—aside from the future Visored—were in dire financial straits. Aizen constructs White, a Hollow with the particular purpose of hollowfied Shinigami, utilizing the soul of a Shinigami in an effort to find Shinji and his gang.
72. Akira Fudo – Devilman
After defeating a demon spirit that seeks to control his body, Akira Fudo, the main character of the Devilman anime and other works by Go Nagai, obtains the ability to transform into the strong Devilman.
Akira is humanity’s last chance as long-hidden demons spring up, gaining the strength and speed to combat the fallen angel Satan and his apocalyptic troops. Despite the fact that his efforts were ultimately in vain, Akira’s might is evident, and he annihilates even the most powerful demons with ease as he seeks to save the planet. When Devilman grows his wings, he’s able to fly.
71. Natsu Dragneel – Fairy Tail
Natsu Dragneel, a Fairy Tail magician and fire dragon slayer, is a powerful wizard. Igneel, his adoptive dragon father, taught him varied magic, and he can push his body beyond its natural boundaries by consuming magical material.
He can battle immortal and apocalyptic monsters like the Black Mage Zeref when he enters this ‘Dragon Slayer Mode.’ Natsu is known for destroying anyone who challenges him or his guild, as well as anything in the proximity of his brawl, using flame-enhanced melee attacks and the occasional blast of fire breath. Natsu’s Dragon Slayer Magic is strengthened by his emotions as well.
70. Yusuke Urameshi – Yu Yu Hakusho
Yusuke Urameshi, a spirit detective, begins as a delinquent who dies in a car accident, but by the end of Yu Yu Hakusho, he has transformed into an almost unstoppable half-demon who is feared by demons all over the spirit world.
Yusuke’s spirit pistol can obliterate entire landscapes and mortally wound even the most powerful demons. His mastery of the Spirit Shotgun and the Spirit Wave technique also make him a flexible fighter capable of destroying any opponent, regardless of combat style. He’s a fantastic character and warrior who grows as a person and a fighter throughout Yu Yu Hakusho.
69. Byakuya Kuchiki
One of the all-time strongest anime characters, Byakuya is a member of the Kuchiki clan and grew up in the same-named mansion in Seireitei. He put in endless hours of practice in order to assume control of the Kuchiki family. Yoruichi Shihin frequently went to Kuchiki Manor to tag Byakuya. On one such occasion, some 110 years ago, her grandfather Ginrei Kuchiki brought her to a training Byakuya.
She attacked and slandered Yoruichi after spotting her. Yoruichi made fun of him, arguing that she didn’t meet him after traveling so far to visit him. Byakuya expressed her dissatisfaction at seeing her and said that he had no time to squander with her because he will lead the Kuchiki clan soon enough.
68. Tanjiro Kamado
One of the most powerful anime characters of all time is this story’s protagonist, who has flaming hair, eyes, hanafuda earrings, and a birthmark on the left side of his forehead. He is the only child of a charcoal trader, and he currently resides in the mountains with his mother and siblings, providing for them as best he can since their father passed away.
He journeys with his younger sister Nezuko in pursuit of an antidote that will restore her to humanity after a demon slaughters his family and Nezuko turns into a demon. Tanjiro was immediately apparent to be a masterful fighter with a high natural talent for combat, particularly in swordsmanship.
67. Roronoa Zoro
One of the fictional anime characters from One Piece is Roronoa Zoro. He is a swordsman who, with the help of his captain and crew, sets out on the mainline in quest of One Piece with the goal of becoming the best swordsman in the entire world.
He is a well-known warrior who uses three swords in battle (this method is known as santry in Japanese) and is a member of the Straw Hat crew under the command of Monkey D. Luffy, the series’ main character. Zoro is uniquely known as an expert of Santōryū (Three Sword Style), where he wields a third sword with his mouth in combat.
66. Usagi Tsukino – Sailor Moon
Usagi Tsukino is one of anime’s strongest Magical Girls. She begins her story as a teenager who is scared of everything, but with time, she becomes a force to be reckoned with.
Usagi doesn’t possess all of her strength on her own. Her Sailor Moon strength is bolstered by her Sailor Senshi squad. In battle, they perform the majority of the work for her as she delivers the final blow. To be able to save the world, she frequently leans on the strength of her companions and their love for her. Her humanity and compassion are what enable her triumph.
65. Big Mom – One Piece
Charlotte Linlin’s real name is Charlotte Linlin, but she is better known as Big Mom, the commander of the Big Mom Pirates. She is a total control freak.
To keep control, Big Mom employs the Soru Soru no Mi Devil Fruit. She can use it to manipulate almost anything, alive or dead, by transferring the soul of a human into it. While this means she loses some of the life energy of the human whose soul she uses, it also means she has more control over her creatures. Even the weather is manipulated for her by one of her creatures.
64. Korosensei – Assassination Classroom
Korosensei is a yellow squid man with nearly unrivaled speed and destructive power. He’s the result of an experiment gone wrong, and has the ability to easily evade gunfire, outfly a fighter jet, and smash a hole in the Moon.
He kidnaps the entire globe and threatens to destroy it unless a gang of troubled kids can stop him before the end of the school year. Korosensei can annihilate practically any opponent if he so chooses, thanks to his sharp intelligence, otherworldly talents, and a physique with more tricks than tentacles. He’s also a genius chemist and has eidetic memory.
63. Madara Uchiha
Madara Uchiha is a made-up character from the Naruto manga and anime series by Masashi Kishimoto. He was the leader of the Uchiha clan and, along with Hashirama Senju, one of the founders of the Hidden Leaf Village, albeit he’s not the primary character. He’s regarded as one of the all-time great ninja, and he was the second person after the Hermit of the Six Paths to master both the Rinnegan and the Eternal Hypnotic Sharingan.
Tobi pretends to be Madara Uchiha throughout the majority of the second half of the story, but it is revealed during the Fourth Ninja War that he is actually the presumed-dead Obito Uchiha, who feigned to be Madara at the request of the latter.
62. Ayato Kirishima
Touka Kirishima’s younger brother Ayato works as an executive with Aogiri. He goes by the moniker “Black Rabbit” and frequently gets confused with his sister, who also dons a bunny costume. His personality is completely different from that of his sister; he comes out as haughty, hostile, and cynical.
He thinks that the weak are doomed to die and have no place on this globe because he believes that “the reason of the powerful is always the best.” He has a strong dislike for people in general and the CCG in particular because it ruined his family. His kagune, like his sister’s, is a winged variety.
Influential characters like Hisoka, Wing, Biscuit, and Razor were shocked when they understood the true range of Gon’s talents, which are occasionally portrayed as limitless. This makes it possible for him to pick things up extraordinarily rapidly, which is especially very useful in the field of Nen where such a talent is extremely uncommon.
Gon possesses superhuman strength and healing abilities because he is an Enhancer. Emission and Transmutation are at least two additional Nen forms that Biscuit possesses as a result of his preparation, which he eventually developed to a level that allowed him to establish functional Nen abilities.
60. Meliodas – The Seven Deadly Sins
Meliodas, the Demon King’s Sin of Wrath, is the son of the Demon King and is as tough as he is durable. Meliodas is the strongest character in The Seven Deadly Sins and anime in general, with gigantic strength, command over the flames of hell, the power to reflect any spell, and a cursed immortality.
A mysterious ability displayed by Meliodas that allows him to generate black flames. The technique also has the additional effect of nullifying an immortal’s regeneration, such as Ban. While his diminutive stature and charming features suggest he lacks physical prowess, he possesses great demonic strength.
59. Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto
Shigekuni Yamamoto Genryūsai is the commander of Gotei 13 and the captain of the First Division. In spite of his ancient age, he has a strong and muscular physique marked by multiple scars, a witness to the countless battles in which he engaged, making him one of the strongest anime characters.
He is depicted as a bald elderly man with long mustaches, eyebrows, and beard. He is tenacious and resolute, and he is adamant that the law must be upheld at all costs. Shunsui Kyōraku and Jūshirō Ukitake, whom he treated nearly as his own children, were personally taught the fighting skills by him at the Shinigami Academy, which he founded.
An additional Death Note-related work. N, real name Nate River, was nurtured in an orphanage for gifted children and is the legitimate successor of L. He sits on chairs oddly (a bit like his predecessor).
His objective will shift from stopping Kira to defeating him (in other words to unmask him in front of those he has deceived). Thus, he will have been the driving force behind the formation of the S.P.K., a special division of the FBI tasked with finding Kira. It has turned out that his deduction is more astute than that of his model (L) or Light. Death Note features a good number of strong characters.
The class 3-E teacher at Kunugigaoka Middle School is Koro-sensei. Although little is known about his background, we eventually discover that he was once a famous assassin known by the name Shinigami, which signified his role as a strong and fearsome hitman in the entire world.
The youthful Koro-sensei was seized by an excessive craving for power and swelled with pride, having always lived in a slum of hyperviolence. After being betrayed by his student (the second and current Shinigami), he was imprisoned in a research facility where his body was subjected to antimatter experiments, which caused him to change into a flexible creature with enormous and enigmatic abilities.
56. Erza Scarlet – Fairy Tail
Erza Scarlet, like many of the finest anime characters, is an exceptional fighter. Unlike some of her fellow anime characters, Erza, however, can expand her skill set by using magic. In the heat of battle, she can literally shift out weapons and armor in the blink of an eye.
That’s quite the magical skill to have, considering she is an expert with most weapons and has access to over 200 swords. She is also telekinetic and has the ability to imbue her swords with magic, giving her an advantage over her opponents, though she never considers herself the best fighter.
55. Ken Kaneki – Tokyo Ghoul
Ken Kaneki grows from a shy bookworm to a revered character known as the One-Eyed King in Tokyo Ghoul. He can easily demolish entire towns and lead armies of monster beasts that can change people into Ghouls after transforming into a half Ghoul and training his body. His hybrid condition makes him more powerful than a natural-born ghoul.
Kaneki obtained superhuman strength, the power to regenerate limbs and even his entire body in exchange for only being able to ingest coffee and human flesh. As a result, he is a near-indestructible combatant who becomes stronger with each hurt he suffers.
One of the key characters in the Naruto series is Sasuke Uchiha. He’s the one who rose to the top of his academy’s student body; amazing grades and performance were just two of his many characteristics.
His strength, on the other hand, began to improve as the series progressed. By the end of Naruto, Sasuke had evolved into one of the most powerful characters ever seen. His metamorphosis was incredible.
One of the all-time strongest anime characters is Aang, the final Airbender still alive. He is a monk of the air nomads and the Avatar’s reincarnation—a spirit of light and serenity with dominion over all four elements.
He truly spent 100 years in cryostasis when he was twelve years old in the first season. He aspires to improve his command of the elements while averting the destruction of other peoples by the Fire Nation. Using his chakra with the roots around him, Aang eventually became deeply connected to other individuals and located them. He used this ability to find Appa and Momo in the Foggy Swamp.
52. Master Roshi
He was born in 430, is the brother of the clairvoyant Baba, is 165 cm tall and weighs 44 kg, and resides on a tiny island in a home known as Kame House (literally, “House of the Turtle”). He is one of the greatest masters of human martial arts in the Dragon Ball universe and one of the strongest anime characters of all time.
Along with Teacher Shen, Master Roshi was a student of the great master Mutaito in his youth. He was present when the latter imprisoned the demon Piccolo. Instructor Roshi and Master Shen split up after their master passed away, developing their own fighting philosophies along the way.
Luffy is the main character in the popular anime series One Piece, and he possesses a golden heart. However, just because he isn’t vicious doesn’t mean he is less than anyone. His strength is superb, and the abilities he gains from his devil fruit are remarkable.
Luffy has the unique ability to stretch his body parts as he sees fit. He’s also a great strategist at the time of battle.
50. Naruto Uzumaki – Naruto
Naruto, everyone’s favorite big mouth ninja, can go toe-to-toe with practically any other anime character you can think of. His power over the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox and his ability to enter Sage Mode grant him unimaginable strength and the ability to create gigantic monsters out of chakra.
Furthermore, his bond with the other tailed creatures allows him to control every aspect of chakra, even combining them for greater destruction. Even if he does not have these skills, he can still summon an army of clones to help him defeat any foe that tries to attack him or hurt his companions.
49. Alucard – Hellsing Ultimate
In Hellsing Ultimate, the legendary Dracula is known as Alucard, and he gives the mythical figure justice. Alucard cannot be ended. He’s functionally immortal at the start of the series due to the number of souls inside of him, and then literally immortal towards the end.
His dual guns are practically cannons, and he can summon the souls of those he’s eaten to build a servant army. As if that weren’t enough, Alucard has an army of demon dogs at his disposal, capable of shredding practically any enemy in an excruciatingly painful manner. He also has the power of regeneration.
48. Lucy – Elfen Lied
Despite the fact that “Lucy” has several voices that make up her character due to dissociative identity disorder, Lucy is the most powerful of them all. She’s the one who makes the most use of the character’s many powers.
Lucy has telekinetic skills, which she manifests through her psychic “vectors” in addition to being a skilled combatant and a near-perfect marksman. She can employ these vectors as invisible arms to extend her reach and power. Lucy’s vectors can sink landmasses the size of small countries when she’s at her most powerful. She has the potential to wipe out the planet.
47. Isaac Netero – Hunter X Hunter
Isaac Netero, 12th Chairman of the Hunter Association and the Head of the Exam Commission, is one of anime’s most powerful martial artists. Netero gained inexplicable speed and power after undergoing training that was supposed to kill him.
If those fail, he can call a giant karate god who can destroy almost anything and stop even the most resilient adversaries in their tracks. He will see victory even if he dies, because he has got a small but devastating bomb implanted in his chest that will demolish anyone who succeeds to kill him and poison anyone who survives the blast.
Shenron, the first dragon to debut in the Dragon Ball anime’s history, is also one of the most powerful anime characters ever created.
He arrives on Earth when the seven Dragon Balls are brought back together and the person in possession of them does a spell to call him. Because he is summoned, he arrives. Then, within the confines of the Almighty’s might, Shenron can grant a wish before detaching. The seven Dragon Balls are then scattered to the four corners of the earth and revert to being plain stones for a year before they may once more be used.
Meruem is the strongest character presented in Hunter x Hunter so far. He is The Chimera Ant King, capable of destroying a hill with a single hit and withstanding many attacks from Isaac Netero, who is regarded as one of the top five Nen users in the Hunter x Hunter universe.
Meruem’s top powers and abilities are: metamorphosis, rage blast, blast power, photon, berserker strength, aura synthesis, and energy manipulation.
As the primary antagonist of Part I, Orochimaru is a criminal who has ties to the Akatsuki. He was formerly a ninja from Leaf Village and a student of Hiruzen, along with Jiraiya and Tsunade, who together make up the three illustrious Sannin. He is one of the all-time strongest anime characters.
Orochimaru experimented on his fellow ninja before founding his own ninja village, the Hidden Village of Sound, as his own personal laboratory to continue living. His goal was to become immortal so that he could live forever with his bride Dai and study all of the known Jutsus.
43. Kenpachi Zaraki
After destroying a whole group of Shinigami, he took control of one of their Zanpakuto and changed its identity to become his own (much like Ichigo will later do with Rukia’s). Soon later, he will run into Yachiru Unohana, the then-Kenpachi, and find in her the first significant challenge of his life.
The two hurt each other (she in the face, he in the neck), but when they saw they could defeat even this foe, Zaraki experienced a psychological trauma that caused him to self-regulate his power. After that, he would discharge a portion of his true power whenever his life is in danger.
42. Yoriichi Tsugikuni
Yoriichi, who was born with the Demon Slayer Mark and the Transparent World, is one of the most well-known and powerful characters in the entire series. He’s also the strongest anime swordsman and Demon Hunter.
Yoriichi was able to exterminate a number of demons after becoming trained as a demon hunter. He was one of the strongest characters in the entire series, and he was able to corner Muzan Kibutsuji by himself, leaving him on the verge of death until he was able to escape. Yoriichi was viewed by Muzan as a true monster. He engaged in combat with his elder twin brother Kokushibo, who had transformed into a demon, just before he passed away at the age of 85.
Given that they both possess a similar fighting technique and ki control, Cabba is powerful enough to match Vegeta in strength in his base state. He turns into a Super Saiyan and his power multiplies tenfold; as a Super Saiyan, he could even deflect punches from Vegeta after being threatened by Vegeta about destroying his world.
Piccolo asserts that he was superior to Vegeta in the battle between the two Saiyans. However, the latter was trying out the limits of his strength. In Dragon Ball Super, Vegeta as Super Saiyan Blue finally defeats Cabba with a single blow. He has been defeated by the two Saiyan women from Dragon Ball Super Universe 6.
40. Nana Shimura
The Hero from the Hero Academia anime who used One For All’s power before passing it to Toshinori, then sans Quirk, also possessed the Quirk Float, which gave her the ability to float and hover in the air. She is one of the series’ most potent and skilled characters.
She is characterized as a woman with a strong sense of justice and duty; she is adamant that a hero should always smile to inspire people with courage and hope; and she was also a close friend of Gran Torino. This character is the first My Hero Academia entry we have.
Despite not being the main character, the Cell has special abilities. In Dragon Ball, the Cell contains the DNA of the world’s toughest fighters. However, depending on who you ask, he may or may not be the strongest anime character.
Cell’s father gave him part of the Saiyan abilities. However, there is still a lot of work to be done. One of the strongest characters in anime, this humanoid character will never get your attention. This character also represents the absurd Dragon Ball franchise generation. Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super both feature a number of strong anime characters.
38. King Arthur
One of the strongest characters in the Seven Deadly Sins anime is our first entry. In the past, Arthur carried a gold sword and donned gold metal armor. Hendrickson’s surprise attack was easily resisted by Arthur, who also delivered a retaliation that wounded the Holy Grand Knight. Arthur seems to be a very skilled warrior.
In Seven Deadly Sins, Arthur’s fencing is significantly superior to that of a typical human because of his quickness and ability to fight on par with Hendrickson. Hendrickson, though, was aware of Arthur’s cover-up for unclear reasons. There are plenty of strong characters in Seven Deadly Sins, according to the anime.
37. Makarov Dreyar
One of the Ten Wizard Saints, Makarov is the guild master of Fairy Tail. Despite his small size and advanced age, he possesses a strong ability and magic power. He fits the mold of the powerful elderly characters that are a staple of anime.
Makarov has the ability to transform into a big, strong human, giving him incredible strength and durability that make him ideal for fighting several opponents. He has the ability to produce a maximum protection seal that enables him to defend either his guild or the town of Magnolia. He also uses light magic, which enables him to launch beams of light at his adversaries.
August fits the anime archetype of the wise old man with superpowers. He is well-known for being a master of a wide variety of magic in the Fairy Tail universe, as well as for his enormous power. He is at the top of the list because he can easily defeat the Oracion Seis.
Due to his proficiency with and power over many other kinds of magic, August has mastered Copy Magic. He can utilize copy magic to both do the same magic as anyone can and to negate an ability, rendering him immune to practically all Fairy Tail magic. Without Gildarts, August might have easily dispatched the majority of the Fairy Tail wizards.
35. Mikasa Ackerman
Eren Yeager’s childhood buddy Mikasa was adopted by his family after having her mother and father killed by slave traders. She keeps a stern demeanor, usually a quiet and reserved girl, except when she is around Eren Yeager and her friends.
Mikasa’s father, it subsequently emerged, was a progenitor of an Eldian bloodline that had been altered to produce super soldiers with titan-like strength and power. These genetically inherited traits can enable offspring to access their ancestors’ battle expertise under pressure. Our protagonists must be strong because the world of Attack on Titan is genuinely harsh. When Eren Yeager exhorts Mikasa to fight back and survive, her instincts are roused.
There are plenty of strong characters in the Dragon Ball anime. The most potent character in the Dragon Ball series is Whis. This is Lord Beerus’ attendant. which was given the chance to work with Lord Beerus for a long time. Our character is perfect in terms of strength and aptitude, which is how he won a place on this list.
Though he possesses unique fighting techniques and some superhuman humanoid abilities, he is unable to activate the Ultra Instinct. In comparison to all the other attendees at the moment and in Dragon Ball generally, Whis claims to be the fastest.
33. Irene Belserion
If Erza from the Fairy Tail anime is powerful, then her mother must also be. One of the Spriggan 12 and the first person to be both a dragon and a dragoness at the same time was Irene Belserion. She invented the magic known as “Dragon Slayer,” which turns out to be an enchantment that people can get from dragons to give them the power.
Irene is a master of enchantment magic, just like Wendy, and has used it on Wendy to captivate Wendy even in her spirit. She may also use magic to compress, reorganize, and, if necessary, reverse the geography of a whole nation. She can even call meteorites to a huge region to cause destruction.
Ymir keeps to herself, is severe and critical, and exudes apathy for the rest of her students. It is clearly implied that she repressed her abilities during training in order to give Krista a chance to place tenth among the Training Corps competitors. When Titans attack Castle Utgard, Ymir changes into a chimpanzee-like Titan that is 7 meters long and agile enough to destroy several giant Titans with its speed, claws, and teeth despite its smaller size.
Before the series’ events, Ymir was an unidentified Eldian orphan living in Marley who was selected by a cult leader to assume the role of a royal descendent and religious leader.
31. The Great Priest
The most significant Dragon Ball anime character, The Great Priest, long served Omni king Zeno Dragon Ball Super. A special spot next to the Omni king was given to the renowned Priest. The Omni monarch began to rely on and have faith in the great Priest as a result. The blessings and talents that the great Priest received from his forefathers and God make him great.
In addition to being a formidable and important Dragon Ball character, The Great Priest was also one of the most intelligent and strong fighters in all of anime history. Undoubtedly among the most enduring Dragon Ball characters.
30. Majin Buu
A monster named Majin Buu was set loose by the sorcerer Bibidi in order to rule the universe millions of years before the events of Dragon Ball began. The Kaio Shin (the universe’s gods and hurdles to Bibidi) were attacked by this one, who ended up being completely unrestrained. He destroyed the North and West gods and absorbed the South god (the strongest).
It then assumed an impressive shape. Dai Kaio Shin was finally swallowed by him. The latter had a calm and good heart, whereas Majin Buu’s personality as well as physical appearance dramatically changed: Buu became overweight and had an infantile personality. The master, who was afraid of the creature, then imprisoned Buu in a cocoon.
29. All Might
Toshinori Yagi is his real name; he was born without an Alter and took up Nana Shimura’s when he was a teenager. He is the greatest hero ever. He is Izuku Midoriya’s idol because he is a genuine image of peace.

A long-held goal of the young man is realized when he accepts his invitation to become his student.
28. Sakura Haruno
Jōnin from Konohagakure Sakura Haruno, now known as Sakura Uchiha, was the female member of Team 7. Although he acknowledged that he had little understanding of how an ideal heroine should be less alone than the main character, Kishimoto created her as the series’ protagonist.
Kishimoto has attempted to emphasize Sakura’s long forehead, which was a feature that led to her being teased by other kids. Ino Yamanaka consoled her and stood up for her when she was teased, but as they became older, their love for Sasuke caused them to grow apart. Sakura despises Naruto Uzumaki and has a crush on Sasuke for the majority of the first section.
27. Mr. Popo
Mister Popo is the devoted servant of the All-Powerful. Except in the Namek saga, when he visits the hospital where Son Goku is receiving treatment to look for Bulma and show him the Almighty’s spaceship, which is located above Master Korin’s tower, and in Dragon Ball GT, when he tells the tale of the cracked Dragon Balls, he never leaves his master’s heavenly palace.
He initially appears in Dragon Ball when Son Goku, as a little boy, visits the shrine of the Almighty to train there after vanquishing the demon Piccolo. To meet the Almighty, he must defeat Mister Popo, but he’s unable to do so since Mister Popo anticipates all of his moves and counters them as he pleases.

Even though he lacks superhuman abilities, he will stop at nothing to surpass his toughest adversary, Katsuki Bakugo, and become a renowned hero.

24. The Avatar – Avatar: The Last Airbender And The Legend Of Korra
Avatar: The Last Airbender, arguably the most popular western anime of the last 20 years, introduced viewers to a figure who could control all four elements and converse with the spirit realm. While most anime heroes can only control one of the elements, Aang was given the opportunity to use all of them.
However, it is difficult to consider Aang the strongest, given Korra’s ability to recover from being unable to utilize her talents at all and Kyoshi’s creation of her own island. Although each Avatar has the same skills as the others, their powers are tailored to specific jobs.
Some of the most bizarre characters in anime history may be found in the Fate Series, such as Gilgamesh. Not only is he extremely attractive, but also really powerful. Gilgamesh is one of the main characters in the Fate series, and he always brings trouble.

Eren Yeager, or the Titan Shifter, is a powerful anime character that can turn into a 15-meter-tall Titan with extraordinary regeneration abilities.

It was his father who injected him with a Titan serum.
He can destroy entire civilizations with a single command that summons hundreds of 50-meter tall Titans to battle. This talent is so powerful that it can defeat entire armies, making Eren one of the strongest characters in anime.
20. Ichigo Kurosaki – Bleach
This orange-haired Shinigami possesses a diverse, and at times perplexing, set of abilities that enable him to beat even the most powerful adversaries. His strength and swordsmanship enable him to overcome all-powerful deities and reality-bending gods, while each set of adversaries he destroys grants him new abilities.
He has an almost unequaled capacity to adapt to new opponents, and he can defeat practically any foe with a combination of his sharp mind and lethal energy slashes. Ichigo is certainly one of the strongest characters in anime, even though viewers have never experienced the full scope of his talents in Bleach.
19. Tatsumaki – One Punch Man
Tatsumaki is one of the rare anime characters who does not require exceptional hand-to-hand combat abilities. Her telepathic skills give her strength. Because of what she can do, she’s dubbed the Tornado of Terror.

She can also use her psychic abilities to create psychic barriers to protect herself and others, as well as manipulate other people’s Chi.

He is not yet the most compelling character, but he is progressing.
Turles has a fighting level of 19,000, according to a movie booklet, even though he was able to avoid Goku’s attacks, which at the time were getting stronger (starting at 30,000 and getting stronger, according to the Tracker’s reading), and was consequently forced to return in search of the fruit that would give him strength.

Not only is it impossible to defend against his skills because of their nature, but the power behind them is so enormous that even the most powerful psychic trembles beneath them.
One of the strongest anime characters of all time, this young woman can be rude to her peers at times but is endowed with tremendous telekinetic abilities to face them. She is 28 years old, but due to her talents, which are supposed to have slowed her growth, she appears to be younger.
Its abilities are so potent that they could easily wipe out an entire city, stop shells, cause natural disasters, or even make meteors fall. Silverfang claims that she possesses numerous supernatural abilities that we haven’t yet seen, including the ability to build force fields to protect herself (silver fang).
13. Ulquiorra Cifer
One of the most powerful anime characters ever, Ulquiorra had already achieved the stage of Vasto Lorde in Hueco Mundo. Despite being one of the most powerful Hollows, he felt excluded by the other Hollows because he was the only one who was white. Because of the mask covering his face, he was unable to hear, taste, or smell anything, rest, or have any company. The only sensation he experienced was “nothing,” and the only thing he did was walk by himself.

There is absolutely no defense against this technique, which is powerful enough to kill everyone who stands in his path. Jotaro is also notably good at psychological warfare and using calm judgment in dire situations.

He’s in charge of the mansion of the Almighty, which is located right above the holy sanctuary. Korin resembles a big, white, bipedal cat and always has a walking stick with her.
You must ascend the tower alone to the top to see it; it is guarded by an Indian giant and rises above the clouds (Son Goku Dragon Ball takes more than a whole day to reach the top, the first time). The magical elixir, which according to mythology gives warriors an edge, is in Korin’s possession.
9. Simon – Gurren Lagann
Simon is an earthling who uses spiral power in his massive mech’s strikes to terrible effect. Simon can develop a drill with the potential to rip reality apart and destroy everyone or anything that stands in his way, thanks to his command of a mech that spans galaxies.

Kaguya, or the Rabbit Goddess, is one of Naruto’s most formidable villains, if not the most powerful woman in anime. Kaguya comes to Earth in order to eat the fruit of the God Tree. Her strategy to bring people together by instilling terror in them worked.
It is understandable why everyone would be terrified of a monster who can read minds, modify memories, travel through space, and control the elements.
6. Son Goku – Dragon Ball Super
Goku is the strongest martial artist in all of anime, as well as in his own universe and all of the other Dragon Ball universes. He is a Saiyan who was raised on Earth.
He can defeat any combatant with his newly acquired Ultra Instinct form, as long as he can tap into that strength. Even when he isn’t in this form, if he fights powerful enough adversaries for long enough, he risks destroying the entire universe as collateral damage. It’s hard to believe that his journey began when he was a small, monkey-tailed youngster living alone in the forest.
5. Sagittarius Seiya
Seiya Sagittarius has the capacity to endure strikes that would obliterate planets without even flinching. He’s from the Saint Seiya series, and no one is safe when he’s on the battlefield. Imagine being able to defend yourself against a God’s attack and surviving it.
That necessitates a great deal of skill and raw strength. And while Sagittarius Seiya already possesses these qualities, there’s so much more to him and his strength.
Because of its appearance and strength, this character has acquired popularity from the start. Beerus is a key character in the Dragon Ball Super series and is also known as the God of Destruction.

Kyubey will eventually destroy anything that exists; his destructive energy cannot be avoided. Few anime characters can hope to stand a fight against him.
2. Saitama – One Punch Man
The strongest character in all anime is Saitama from One Punch Man. He can defeat any enemy with a single serious strike after having trained in an intensive manner for three years.
However, Sitama feels melancholy as a result of his invincible strength, and the series tackles the emptiness that comes with it. Because the fundamental purpose of the character is that pursuing strength is more rewarding than being strong.
1. Zeno – Dragon Ball Super
Zeno is the monarch of all realities in Dragon Ball Super, and he has the power to both create and destroy all of reality at the same time. The child-like god wields absolute power and has shattered multiple universes for fun and treats galaxies as if they were marbles.
