Most Powerful Anime Characters

Nowadays, the anime industry is going through a renaissance period and it’s producing more exciting movies and shows than ever. But out of all the shows we’ve seen over the past few decades, there are still those series that stand head-and-shoulders above the rest.

Anime attracts viewers because of its characters. The characters have abilities that are so super-powerful that you’ll leave the fan’s mouth gaping.


There are so many characters in the world of fiction. It’s hard to know which ones are really the strongest,, that’s why we decided to list the most powerful anime characters of all time!

Most Powerful Anime Characters

30. Eren Yeager ( Attack on Titan )

Eren Yeager


You’ve learned from this list that appearances can be very deceiving. This seemingly fragile boy, however, has incredible power.

In Attack on Titan, he can transform into a giant Titan over 15 meters tall – the Attack Titan! His most exciting skill is controlling an army of titans, each over 50 meters tall.

This group of warriors is dedicated and driven. They’re happy to lay everything on the line for something they believe in.


29. Vash the Stampede ( Trigun )

Vash the Stampede

In the anime Trigun, Vash the Stampede is a wanted man with a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head for the destruction of a city. He is known as “The Humanoid Typhoon” and “The Walking Disaster.”


He is a master of gunfighting and can shoot faster than the eye can follow. He always has a smile and is always ready with a joke. He is also a pacifist who hates violence and only wants to help people.

28. Yusuke Urameshi

Yusuke Urameshi

Yusuke Urameshi is a powerful kid who was killed by a car. However, he was brought back to life by the ruler of the spirit world because he had potential. Yusuke is a tough guy who is always up for a fight. He has a strong sense of justice and always seeks to help those in need. He is also very loyal to his friends and will do whatever it takes to protect them.


In the show, Yusuke’s signature technique is his spirit weapon. Most people would think it easy, but it can even destroy a demon.

Yusuke continues to be a Powerful fighter, making him a tough opponent for even the strongest of opponents.

27. Korosensei (Assassination Classroom)



Despite his bizarre appearance, this character is quite powerful. He’s a strange mix between human and octopus—and we mean that in both the figurative and literal sense.

Korosensei is so strong he can even punch the moon! In addition to his strength, he is also swift. He’s capable of dodging bullets with ease. He has so many skills that he could destroy the planet if he wanted to.

26. Ken Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul)

Ken Kaneki


Kaneki is typically considered the most robust character in Tokyo Ghoul. His combat power can usually be overwhelming, as he can quickly destroy entire cities. Some people even consider him to be invincible.

The hero’s strength is boundless, and he can regenerate remarkably quickly. This gives him an edge over most opponents, completely outmatched by the protagonist.

Kaneki’s Kaneki Ken is a half-ghoul; when he can’t fight with his bare hands, he fights with giant armies of monsters!


25. Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama ( Psycho Mob 100 )

Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama

This kid is probably the most interesting character on this list.

Mob has superhuman powers, but the best things about him are that he masters all abilities linked to the psychic plane in such a casual and effortless way.


When Mob activates his “Mode 100%,” he possesses an incredible power to defeat all opponents. When using “Mode ???%”, one becomes unstoppable, being able to defeat any opponent. This is a very powerful ability when coupled with psychic powers.

24. Naruto Uzumaki ( Naruto )

Naruto Uzumaki


The Naruto fan would never forgive us if we didn’t mention Naruto Uzumaki. He well deserves this place, as he has incredible skills and uses orange clothing to fight.

If you thought being strong, fast, and durable was enough to be the best of the best, Naruto’s got one more trick up his sleeve: he can regenerate in a manner that even surprises a god. He is also capable of flying when he enters Sage Mode.

23. Ryo Asuka/Satan (Devilman Crybaby)

Ryo Asuka/Satan

Though not in its original form, Ryo is still more powerful than normal humans. He has a high intelligence ranking and is fast and regenerative.


But things take an interesting turn when he transforms into Satan and starts to reincarnate anywhere and at any time.

In this form, he has telekinetic powers that allow him to kill anyone, even to destroy the Moon easily!

22. Altair (Re: Creators)

Altair (Re Creators)


The Re: Creators anime offers lots of exciting and unique characters, one of them being Altair. Although he has many exciting qualities, Altair is mighty.

His power, which is believed to be unlimited, allows him to do many things such as travel to different dimensions and worlds. He also has highly developed telekinetic abilities.

Altair is responsible for bringing many of Re: Creator’s characters into the real world–er, into the world that exists in their universe.


21. Sōsuke Aizen (Bleach)

Sōsuke Aizen (Bleach)

One thing everyone knows about Sōsuke Aizen is that he has a power level very close to that of a god. His intelligence makes him a good strategist, if not the most brilliant in the Bleach franchise.

The fact that he is brilliant makes him a brilliant strategist, probably the best in the entire Bleach franchise.


Surprisingly, someone so demonic as Sōsuke can still use some of the most powerful techniques in the series. Plus, he has no limit to his spiritual power! If you’re not impressed yet, it remains to be said that he is immortal.

20. Simon (Gurren Lagann)

Simon (Gurren Lagann)

Simon de Gurren Lagann, despite being terrestrial, is extremely powerful, and believe me, his power level is impressive for a character with his characteristics.

He is so strong that his powers are similar to those of a god; Simon has so much power in his hands that he is believed even to destroy the universe.


Another skill that makes him part of this list is his ease in molding and modifying reality almost at his own pleasure.

19. Saitama (One-Punch Man)

Saitama (One-Punch Man)

We are aware that placing Saitama in 16th place will give some bullshit in the comments, and this is because the character can defeat any character with a single punch.

Saitama can survive ALMOST anything, thanks mainly to his insane training regimen. In addition to Saitama’s strengths, he is fast and agile.

He doesn’t rank higher on our list because to defeat the opponents, he needs to hit them with a punch… something he couldn’t do to the following characters!

18. Vegeta (Dragon Ball)

Vegeta (Dragon Ball)

Almost every anime fan knows Vegeta, one of the most popular characters in the Dragon Ball franchise, but make no mistake, his fame is well deserved.

In addition to being super powerful, fast, and resistant, he has unlimited potential, fueled by his desire to be better than the protagonist of the Goku franchise.

Vegeta is so powerful that he can even defeat gods, using techniques and transformations that he developed and does not share with any other character.

17. Goku (Dragon Ball)

Goku (Dragon Ball)

As Dragon Ball episodes go by, Goku gets stronger, which doesn’t seem to end since his potential is unlimited.

Goku is a super dedicated guy, always looking for ways to increase his power, and that’s how he surpassed the power of the Gods.

Goku’s achievements are many, and it doesn’t seem to end there, so it’s normal for Goku to move up a few positions shortly.

16. Whis (Dragon Ball Super)

Whis (Dragon Ball Super)

It may even be unfair to place Whis in the 17th position on this list, as no one knows the real limit of his powers. He is so powerful that he can easily defeat Goku and Vegeta.

In addition to his strength, speed, and agility, he can control time and travel between different realities and dimensions, something only within reach of a small group of Dragon Ball characters.

As if all that wasn’t enough, Whis has an impressive knowledge of the Dragon Ball universe, giving him an immense advantage over his opponents.

15. High Priest (Dragon Ball Super)

High Priest (Dragon Ball Super)

The High Priest is a real enigma in Dragon Ball, as no one knows the limits of his power (if he has any limits at all). However, we know that he is one of the strongest characters in the entire franchise.

This powerful character is immortal and is still considered an authentic deity in the Dragon Ball universe, capable of defeating anyone (except one other character).

All respect the High Priest, be they Supreme Kais, Gods of Destruction, or even Angels like Whis. It is believed that he, too, can annihilate entire universes.

14. Tetsuo Shima (Akira)

Tetsuo Shima (Akira)

Akira is one of the most iconic anime of all time, and the main antagonist in the story had a truly ridiculous power level.

Tetsuo Shima can teleport anywhere, even having the ability to read minds, all accompanied by a truly insane level of physical power.

But what sets it apart is its ability to destroy entire universes and create new ones from scratch.

13. Reinhard Heydrich (Dies Irae)

Reinhard Heydrich (Dies Irae)

This character has a set of very interesting characteristics. Able to manipulate reality and space-time, he is still considered immortal thanks to his vampirism.

But what makes Reinhard Heydrich special is his complete mastery of everything in the metaphysical realm.

This, combined with other powers like a quick regeneration ability, being immune to poisons, and mind manipulation, make him one of the most fearsome guys in Dies Irae!

12. Najimi Ajimu (Medaka Box)

Najimi Ajimu (Medaka Box)

Of course, we would have to have Medaka Box characters on our list. Let’s start with Najimi Ajimu and his unique skill list.

This seemingly fragile character has about 12,858,051,967,633,865 different abilities, a list of which we don’t even know the half.

On top of that, Najimi Ajimu is omnipresent, and his life is eternal. A curious fact is that this character is constantly breaking the fourth wall, showing that he knows he is an anime character.

11. Haruhi Suzumiya (Medaka Box)

Haruhi Suzumiya

This girl is really powerful despite not knowing it. She manages to destroy, create and alter reality, her powers being compared to those of a goddess.

However, she is not aware of her power and ends up using it unconsciously and having no idea what she is really doing (which makes her even more dangerous).

A little thought is enough for reality to change – this represents its unrivaled power!

10. Madoka (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

Madoka (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

If you watch or have watched Puella Magi Madoka Magica, one of the most interesting things about the anime is watching the evolution of Madoka.

The character starts out being reasonably fragile, slowly evolving until her power level is similar to that of an authentic goddess.

Madoka can, therefore, easily destroy planet Earth and even change the laws of the Universe if she so chooses.

9. Ren Fujii (Dies Irae)

Ren Fujii (Dies Irae)

Ren Fuji is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. However, these characteristics are limited to his reality, and he cannot carry these abilities with him to other realms of existence.

Ren can manipulate the mind and soul as well as all the elements. He can even materialize swords made of energy and move through his super speed.

Finally, he can even travel to other realms of existence and is considered immortal.

8. Mercurius (Day of Wrath)

Mercurius (Day of Wrath)

After Reinhard Heydrich and Ren Fujii, we still have to discuss another character from Dies Irae, the mighty Mercurius.

Like Ren Fuji, he is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent (limited to his reality). However, something that makes him a little more powerful is the fact that he can manipulate space-time.

Another interesting feature is its telekinesis powers, which gives it some advantage over its opponents. He, too is considered immortal.

7. Lambdadelta (Umineko no Naku Koro Ni)


Lambdadelta is a harmless girl, but she is so much more than her looks! This Umineko no Naku Koro Ni character has an almost infinite list of abilities.

In addition to the endless list of techniques, Lambdadelta manages to manipulate space-time and is considered omnipresent (not only in its reality).

She is still immortal, but what makes her special is that she can create or end the existence of whatever reality she visits.

6. Bernkastel (Umineko no Naku Koro Ni)

Bernkastel (Umineko no Naku Koro Ni)

Bernkastel and Lambdadelta are part of the same anime and constantly interact, so it’s no surprise that they are side by side on our list.

In reality, the powers of the two are very similar; both have an almost infinite list of abilities, can manipulate spacetime, and are considered ubiquitous.

However, in addition to these similarities and being able to create or terminate the existence of everything in her reality and to be immortal, she can still resurrect.

5. Kyubey (Madoka Magica)


Sounds cute. But he looks like it because he’s one of the most powerful and dangerous characters in all anime, don’t you believe?

Kyubey is immortal and omnipotent; that alone should be enough to secure a spot on this list… But he has more to offer!

This little character has only one thing as a reason for his existence – to collapse other existences, whether they are planets or complete universes. In addition to having an incredibly destructive force, he can still manipulate reality as he wishes.

4. Anti-Spiral (Gurren Lagann)


Anti-Spiral is a character from the Gurren Lagann anime. This sinister being is practically omnipotent, being omniscient and omnipresent.

This super-entity controls space-time, destroying entire universes with frightening ease, which is a testament to its real power.

In addition, this character is considered immortal, as would be expected from a being with such special characteristics as these.

3. Zeno (Dragon Ball Super)


Undoubtedly the most powerful Dragon Ball character we’ve ever had the chance to meet, Zeno may seem like a simple child, but he’s much more than that.

This little character is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, being the most powerful character in all universes in the franchise. He can create and destroy complete universes with a simple snap of his fingers.

We never got to see Zeno fight because he doesn’t need to because of his power level – theoretically, he can defeat anyone.

2. The Choushin (Tenchi Muyo!)

The Choushin

Tenchi Muyo! has in our opinion, the most powerful characters in the anime world, and The Choushin is one of those that deserve to be at the top of our list!

This character consisting of three three-dimensional deities is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, able to create and destroy complete universes.

In addition, he is also able to construct and manipulate realities with great ease. Its power is seemingly unlimited, only being surpassed by one character.

1. Kami Tenchi (Tenchi Muyo!)

Kami Tenchi

We’ve come to the one who is the most powerful anime character of all time – Kami Tenchi from the Tenchi Muyo anime!

Kami Tenchi is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, representing the god of all creation and standing above any other level of existence.

This character has created an infinite multidimensional universe, and nothing is more powerful than him. Interestingly, he is constantly compared to the One Above All in the Marvel Universe.
