Top 70 Best Prison Movies Of All Time
Top 50 Strongest Anime Characters Of All Time
Kay-Posted Nov 9, 2021
Strong Anime Characters. Still one of the most fascinating aspects of the anime medium that we loved back from Childhood.
And with the wide variety of shows to choose from, this selected group gets added with a bunch of new members every now and then.
We still love to compare our beloved characters and see who is stronger than whom.
It's just a normal, weeb activity now. Therefore, to contribute to the community and add value to this discussion, I have decided to create the Top 50 Strongest Anime Characters list.
Since anime doesn't have any metric to judge strengths, all of the rankings are made from personal judgment.
Moreover, to make the list rich and diverse, a lot of characters from just one anime are avoided because that would make this activity way too monotonous *cough* Dragon Ball *cough*.
So grab your favorite action figurine, prepare for a Kamehameha as we dive into the Top 50 Strongest Anime Characters list.
I hope you enjoy it!
50. Light Yagami
Let's begin our super long and strong list with my man Light. Now for those of you who have no idea why I am talking about a ray of light, let me clear it up.
Light Yagami is the main protagonist of the show we call Death Note. Ever heard of that?
And my man Light is also in possession of the legendary Death Note. Moreover, he is the most capable user of that notebook and that is why he is looked upon as one of the strongest characters in anime.
I mean think about it, if the reaches of Death Note are infinite, my man can kill basically anyone.
But since Death Note has its limitations, my man light is at the 50th spot.
The next man on our list is the strongest human in his realm. Although not gonna lie, he doesn't seem to do human things, am I right?
This is Krillin. Krillin is one of the side characters in the drain Ball series and he is one of the only humans in the show.
Although his strength is unreal, he gets overshadowed by those around him. Yet, before the Dragon Ball z series showed up, Krillin was one of the strongest characters in the entire franchise.
And that is also the reason why he is standing on our list with his bald head held high.
48. Tanjiro Kamado
We all know how important it is to breathe properly. But when you take this simple activity to the next level, you will experience something unreal.
And maybe, you would also become one of the strongest humans as well. Tanjiro Kamado is a normal teen from the Demon Slayer franchise.
However, when he has his katana in his hand, you are going to have a very hard time against him.
Just by getting proper control over his breathing, this man became stronger than any of us.
Which essentially makes him one of the strongest protagonists in recent anime.
47. Mikasa Ackerman
In the realm of Attack On Titan, the Ackerman family is something to be scared of.
And you know that this is more so true when you realize that our Waifu Mikasa, is a part of that family.
Mikasa Ackerman is one of the leading characters in the Attack on Titan franchise. And let's just say that going up against her would mean nothing but death to you.
She is one of the finest soldiers and with her Ackerman blood, she can do anything and everything to make sure that those Titans don't make it through.
And that is also the reason why she is on our list.
46. Levi Ackerman
Even if you haven't watched Attack On Titan, you would have realized that this man is a danger.
Especially if you read the description in the previous entry. This is Humanity's Strongest Soldier, Levi Ackerman.
He is one of the leading characters in the Attack On Titan series. And I won't be able to say this without a sense of respect for him but this man is unreal.
Even though he is very short, his strength is no joke. His agility, precision, skills, and stamina are just way too much.
And that is the reason why you should be afraid of this man. Going up against him means pure death.
And it also means that he is one of the strongest humans in all of anime.
Speaking of one of the strongest humans in anime, allow me to introduce you to Thors.
This man is a man who is a beast. Yeah, exactly! Thors is one of the leading characters in the Vinland Saga series and let's just say that he is nothing less than an absolute monster.
Despite having zero "unreal aspects" to support him, Thors is probably the strongest human you can find.
His strength is just unreal and his skill is a topic of discussion. In a 1v1, he is unbeatable.
Heck, even in a 1v100 he is still unbeatable. Don't believe me? Just watch the Vinland Saga anime, you would start believing.
From the realm of the Arabian nights stands Sinbad, one of the gifted children in anime.
He is known within the community as one of the most handsome characters and his strength and power just adds up to the number of reasons you should be SIMPING for him.
I mean, he is one of the Masters at conquering dungeons and even though he has supernatural factors supporting him, he isn't hollow without them.
He has his strengths and weaknesses that make him more human and his determination is just a reason to live him even more.
In other words, you are bound to feel safe and confident around him. Sinbad is a man you should look up to no matter what.
Just don't pick a fight with him.
Sometimes, you are going to find characters that are so unique that you will be fascinated by them.
Just the concept of such characters would make you scratch your head and question everything.
And one such character is none other than Tetsuo. My man right here is one of the leading characters in the series.
However, unlike any other character you might have seen to date, he is also the antagonist of his movie, Akira.
He is the one who possesses insane powers that makes him otherworldly and also someone who deserves a rank on our list.
42. Izuku Midoriya
Hard work and determination can let you win anything and everything. And even though you might not agree to it, my man Izuku definitely does.
Izuku Midoriya is the main character of the My Hero Academia franchise and he is nothing less than amazing.
He was born without a strong power and therefore, wasn't able to shine as one of the strongest beings in his realm and become a hero.
However, with determination and dedication, he managed to make his way to get super strong and finally, have one of the most powerful quirks in his realm.
And that is also how he became one of the strongest anime characters.
41. Baki Hanma
If I were to say who is the strongest human in the anime industry, there's a heavy chance that this man's name would have popped up.
Allow me to introduce you to Baki. Hanma Baki is the main character of the Baki series and this man is just a monster.
Just like Thors, his strength is inhumane and can't be compared to anyone else. He can beat you to death in a matter of seconds and you won't even realize it.
And that's not something exclusive to you. Oh no, my friend. This guy can basically defeat anyone he wishes to.
And to those whom he can't, he is working hard to take care of them as well.
Want a physique like him for sure.
40. All Might
Remember Izuku Midoriya? The guy whom we talked about before? Well, he learned his techniques from this man right here.
Yup, he is the most elite being of the My Hero Academia universe, All Might.
All Might is one of the leading characters in My Hero Academia and he is basically a God there.
Not saying that he is some sort of absolute being or anything but he is definitely the strongest out of all the characters in the series.
He is in fact known for being the strongest amongst all others and that fact acts as motivation for most of them.
Being a symbol is something incredible if you ask me.
Just because she is a girl, doesn't mean she can't rip you apart. And if you want to cross-check this fact then you can go ahead and mess with this beautiful yet lethal girl, Touka.
Touka is one of the leading characters in Tokyo Ghoul and she is dangerous on another level.
Since she is a ghoul, regeneration and unreal activities are part of her natural activities.
Plus, she is also one of the best in the series and is capable of defeating most other Ghouls.
One must be in an incorrect mindset while messing up with her. And her strength is a force to be afraid of.
If you are a fan of Yu Gi Oh, you know that this name is something that shivers the strongest.
This is time to talk about one of the strongest beings in the universe of Yu Gi Oh, Exodia.
Exodia is one of the characters in the Yu Gi Oh franchise and it is looked upon as one of the scariest spellcasters.
Going up against it is very close to forfeiting the match because for the most part, you are not going to win.
The sheer amount of power and magic that this being hold is incredible and that makes him worthy of standing on our list.
Just like Exodia, there is one more being that can't be overlooked in the Yu Gi Oh world.
Looked upon as the Dark One, this is Zorc. He is one of the strongest characters in the series and has the power and magic to kill an army in an instant.
He uses dark magic and his ability to attain victory is on another level. Talk about raw strength and prowess and you get a beast that should be feared by all those around him.
Keep him in check or else it won't take him any time to make you a subject of his manslaughter.
Yup, he is incredible yet dangerous on a different plane.
Izuku is not the only one who can motivate you with their hard work and determination.
Let me introduce you to my boy Asta as well. Asta is the main character of the Black Clover series and he is known for his bad luck.
He wanted to be the wizard king but unfortunately, he wasn't capable to do so.
In fact, he was the only one who didn't have magic IN HIS ENTIRE WORLD.
Yet, with the power of dedication and hard work, he managed to do the impossible.
He got his hand on the 5 leaf clover, and now he is on his mission.
With the strangest strength in his realm, he will do all he can to become the next Wizard King.
And no one can stop him.
One of the strongest humans yet again, we have our boy Gon. Now unlike Baki or Thors, Gon isn't exactly pure human.
Oh no, my friend. He is a hunter and that is why he already has some supernatural capabilities under his sleeves.
But that's not all. He is also very capable as a hunter with insane strength being one of the factors.
Now the thing about his strength actually falls in the spoiler territory so I won't be telling you guys about it in extreme detail.
But just keep in mind that this guy is strong on a completely different level.
Above everything, you would have seen in the series at this point. Yup, be excited if you are watching Hunter x Hunter.
Even though Gon became the star of the show at one point, the one who always captivates us is none other than Killua.
My man not only has a super hot body but is also very popular. And this popularity will make sense to you once you realize how amazing he is, as a person.
Despite being super strong, he is humble and his nature is adorable for all the viewers.
Speaking of strong, my man is so fast, stealthy, and agile that most of you won't even realize how he killed all those around you and you are the last one.
He isn't the absolute strongest in the series but for the most part, he is incredibly powerful.
This man right here is another creature if you ask me. Just like the previous two, he is also from the Hunter x Hunter series.
However, the previous two were kids. He is a man. Monster*. Sorry about that, that was a typo right there.
So yeah, he is a monster known even within the series as a force to be reckoned with.
And you would realize the truth about it once you start the series. I won't spoil you much but this man is known for his assassination skills.
And his lethal and somewhat pedophile nature seems to attract female anime fans so much.
Can't get your head around it, right? But don't worry, he won't spend a second snapping that head of yours.
32. All For One
Remember when I said that All Might was a God in his series? Yeah, allow me to introduce the devil as well.
Now is the time to discuss, All For One. All For One is one of the main villains in the My Hero Academia franchise and he is just too strong.
This man has the capabilities to take anyone's strength and that is what makes him so powerful in the first place.
In the My Hero Academia realm, if you have the ability to run super-fast, he can take that ability from you and have it for himself or give it to someone else.
Just imagine his strength now! I mean, just imagine!
Yeah, yeah, I know I know! Many of you guys might laugh at me for keeping this being right here.
But hey, Pokemon is an anime so he qualifies, ok? Don't question it! Anyway, let me tell those who don't know about him.
He is Arceus, the God of all Pokemon. And since he is a God, he is also the strongest Pokemon ever created.
His strength is on an intergalactic level and it is assumed that he created the Pokemon realm just as it is today.
We all know how strong Pokemon are in comparison to humans. So imagine being the strongest Pokemon of them all and trying to go against humanity.
Yeah, doesn't seem to be anything less than a death wish.
This name is not something you haven't heard of. If you have been part of the anime community for even a day, you must be aware of this anime.
But for the small group who isn't, allow me to explain. The next entry on our list is Eren Yeager, the main character of Attack On Titan.
And this man right is a literal monster. He has the ability to become a Titan and destroy anything and everything in his path.
Just imagine going against a beast who is probably 50x times bigger than you and has the same intelligent mind as your own.
Oh yeah, he is VERY strong.
29. Shigeo Kageyama
Psychic powers aren't exactly the most prominent power system in the anime medium. However, we are still aware of its capabilities thanks to the existence of anime like Mob Psycho 100.
And this show is also home to one of the most unique anime protagonists in recent memory, Shigeo Kageyama.
Shigeo Kageyama aka Mob is a psychic who can do anything and everything with his mind.
However, unlike your expectations, he doesn't use his powers at all and instead, relies on his human capabilities to achieve what he wants to.
But don't you blunder to think he is weak, because once he loses control, he is absolutely unstoppable.
From one of the most successful anime and manga franchises of all time, we have Luffy.
Luffy is the main character of the very popular, One Piece and my man has a heart of gold.
However, just because he doesn't have any ruthless intent doesn't mean he is second to anyone.
Oh no, my friend. His strength is amazing and the powers he gets from his devil fruit are just so incredible.
He can stretch his body parts and use them at his discretion. With one of the most intelligent battle minds, my man manages to defeat anyone who is against him, making him an absolute beast.
27. Kaneki Ken
While Touka is a great girl, she doesn't come near my boy right here. Allow me to tell you about Kaneki Ken.
A boy who lost everything and gained nothing. Kaneki Ken is the protagonist of the Tokyo Ghoul series.
And this man had a miserable life all along. First, he became a ghoul, and then he was tortured to death.
However, as we all know, every defeat is an opportunity for strength, he overlooked all the shortcomings, problems, and drawbacks in his life and became an absolute monster.
He started to torture those who tortured him and in the process developed an amount of strength that can shiver all those around him.
26. Gojo Satoru
You know you are incredible when somehow, you have managed to be the most popular character of your anime.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let's lay our eyes on the handsome hunk, Satoru Gojo. Gojo Satoru is one of the lead characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen series.
And just like All Might, he is basically the God of his series. In fact, everyone including villains knows that they can't win against Gojo and fighting him means an automatic death.
He is on our side and acts as a reassurance for the hero team. Yet, if he is in a bad mood, the villain and the heroes, both are going to witness a scenery of pure strength.
The strength that can water you down in an instant. Lesson number 1, don't mess with Gojo.
Lesson number 2, remember lesson number 1.
Well well, if it isn't the swordsman we all love and appreciate. Let's lay our eyes on the monster that we know by the name of Ichigo.
Ichigo Kurosaki is the main character of the Bleach franchise. And I won't lie, he is just way too good to be a protagonist.
Unlike others who are very weak in the beginning and get strong in the process, Ichigo was fairly strong in the beginning and became even better as time went by.
Soon, you wouldn't even realize how insane he became and gathered the strength to kill all those around him.
Even the villains in his realm developed a fear for him. And that's why he is a protagonist you should respect and love.
Natsu Dragoneel, a name that many of us have heard of. And it comes as no surprise since this man right here is not going low on his name.
Natsu is the main character of the Fairy Tail series and uses Fire as his primary power.
However, as the series progresses, my man becomes better and better, and soon, he reaches a level that those within the show hesitate to mess with him.
His fire strength becomes unreal and with his team, he manages to defeat anyone and everyone who stand against him.
Without a doubt, a being your shouldn't mess with at all.
Hey, can you split a mountain with a stick? No? Well, too bad because this short boy right here can!
And he can do much more that you can't even fathom. Meliodas is the main character of the Seven Deadly Sins series and my man is strong by default.
Like, the moment you start watching the show, is the moment you would realize that Meliodas is being of his own.
Those around him don't even come close to how strong he is and as the story progresses, the gap becomes clearer and clearer.
There is only one who can have his feet against him. And you will find out about him as well.
Very rarely do we see a character like Sasuke and watching him destroy those villains is a feeling of excitement on another level.
Sasuke Uchiha is one of the main characters in the Naruto series. He is the one who went ahead and became the most elite student in his academy.
Amazing grades and amazing performance were just a few of the many features he had.
However, as the series progressed, his strength started to progress as well. And by the end of Naruto, Sasuke became one of the strongest characters you are ever going to see.
And trust me when I say this, his transformation was amazing.
Now let's talk about this GOAT right here. A name that is very common amongst anime as well as non-anime fans.
This is the time we include the main character of the amazing show, Naruto. Needless to say, Naruto is the main character of the Naruto franchise and he is an absolute motivation.
No one can come out and say that Naruto didn't act like a motivational figure to them when they completed the series.
He was weak when he started but with love and determination in his eyes, he managed to defeat all the obstacles in his path.
And in the process, he became one of the strongest characters in anime history. Don't believe me, just watch the show.
There's a reason why people compare everyone with his strength.
Being able to lay a finger against your own kind requires a lot of courage.
And you can spot such a massive amount of courage in our boy Alucard. He is one of the leading characters in Hellsing Ultimate and a strong vampire with that.
The premise of Hellsing requires humans to fight against Vampires. And Alucard is a vampire on his own.
However, he is still fighting from the side of humans! Why? Who knows? I mean I know but why should I spoil you?
What I will spoil you about is the fact that he is incredibly strong. A level of strength that just can't be matched against any character in the series.
Yup, he is THAT amazing. Just wait and see. Surprises are on their way.
19. Jotaro Kujo
The next 2 entries on our list are from a certain anime that is known within the community by almost everyone.
Yup, you guessed it correctly, this is about the characters from Jojo's Bizarre Adventures. First up, we have Jotaro Kujo, who is one of the leading characters from the series.
This man right here is nothing less than a monster in terms of combat. And what makes any JoJo character so amazing is their battle instinct.
The way these characters plan out their strategies and work upon them is impeccable. And Jotaro is one of the elite ones amongst them as well.
Imagine being cornered by any of these characters. I wonder if life is going to spare you now.
18. Joseph Joestar
The next boy is Joseph Joestar and just like his previous mate, he is also an incredibly strong character whom we just can't ignore.
You can't go wrong with Joseph and his strength. Even though he isn't the absolute strongest in his show, he is still someone you wouldn't wanna mess with.
And his stand just so happens to boost his strength to the next level as well.
I don't want to spoil you by telling you what his stand is. But let's just say that his power is something that will shock you instantly.
Plus, we already have the famous battle tactics and mind games in the show. Therefore, these characters are no jokes to be ignored.
Joseph can solo clear entire universes of many anime and we wouldn't even be able to realize it.
Yeah, just watch him destroy, you will be shocked.
Dragon Ball series always had some of the most insane characters even when it started.
And this can be cross-checked by taking a look at one of the first villains from the franchise, Frieza.
The destroyer of planets and devil for many, this intergalactic ruler is something that you and I wouldn't wanna face in real life.
Not only is he ruthless with his massacres and crimes, but he is also incredibly strong.
He is shown to be able to destroy planets with just his finger. Yup, he has destroyed planets with just a finger.
Don't question it! He is known as the destroyer for a reason. And even within his universe, he was this strong naturally.
He trained for 4 months in the dragon ball super series and Bam, managed to reach the level of Gods.
So yeah, Frieza is strong. And when I say strong, I mean horribly strong. Don't mess with him.
Imagine being someone who tried world domination, has committed mass murder, and killed those who stand in his way.
Seems unreal right? Well, it wouldn't anymore once you get to know about Kars. This man right here is nothing less than a monster who can't be one up by anyone.
His powers involve him being able to blind his opponents using light. However, the way he uses his seemingly simple power and manages to defeat the opponent is just incredible.
It's a matter of hand gestures for this man to trick his opponents and lead him to their demise.
And the ability to kill millions of people is always there. Without a doubt, a monster who needs to be stopped.
But did they stop him? Watch the series to find out!
15. Fused Zamasu
Yet another Dragon Ball character has made his way to the list, weebs. This time it's the villain from the Dragon Ball Super series and a really strong one with that.
Allow me to tell you about Fused Zamasu. Fused Zamasu is one of the antagonists of the Dragon Ball Super series.
And this man has the body of Goku fused with the God of Creation of Universe 10.
Therefore, his strength reaches a level that just can't be put in any measure. Think about it, being a God fused with someone who has attained the powers of a God.
This equation is God + God = You are done. And that is why this man is always bad news.
Even within the series, this man was a lot of trouble to deal with. So yeah, Fused Zamasu is a force to be reckoned with.
Probably the most famous deuteragonist of all time, we have Vegeta. Now this man right here is the symbol of hard work and determination being put upfront.
And this is what makes him so strong. Because of his hunger for strength and ability, he is one of the strongest characters in the entire Dragon Ball franchise.
He is known for his arrogant and self-centered behavior. However, he is also known for his deep and mind-blowing work ethic.
Despite all his defeats, he has managed to surpass all those who were above him and he keeps moving forward.
Right now, within the series, he has achieved the power levels that exceed that of a God.
And that is why the Prince is so high on this list. If you want some great motivation then he is the one you should look up to.
In the anime community, there are only 2 people you would have for strength comparison.
One of those is Saitama. Now, who is Saitama you may ask? Well, Saitama is the main character of the One Punch Man series.
And just as the name sounds, he is a hero who can defeat anyone in just 1 punch.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen, this baldy can defeat anyone, and by anyone, I mean anyone, with just a single punch.
That's the premise of the show. There is no second thought about it. And it is shown in the anime that he can break a meteorite and someone's jaw with just One Punch.
His strength is still a mystery but no doubt. He is incredibly strong and his power levels are something we just can't measure.
Don't even think about going against him. Otherwise, you would reach hell one punch later.
The Fate Series has some of the most insane characters in anime history. And one of them is the legendary Gilgamesh.
This man is not only super handsome but also super strong. And if you don't know about him, let me give you some trivia.
Gilgamesh is one of the leading characters in the Fate franchise and let's just say that he is bad news.
Going against him not only means that you are going to get in a brutal fight, but it also somewhat confirms that you are going to end up dead.
Yup, he is a carnivore. And his skills are jaw-dropping, to say the least. I can go on and on about his strength.
But let's save something for you to watch as well.
Now then, let's talk about some insane murderers. Those who just can't be put into words for their actions.
And I don't think anyone fits this lethal description better than Utsuro. For those who don't know, he is the main antagonist of the Gintama franchise and this guy is not someone you would wanna miss with.
He has killed an innumerable number of people and his powers include insane speed, strength, and agility thanks to his assassin background.
If you were to ask me, he can destroy anyone and everyone without breaking a sweat.
And that also means that you should beware of him. Being able to kill all of your opponents without breaking a sweat is not something we see that often.
And that is why he is so high on this list.
Well, well. Would you look at that? We are in the Top 10 Ladies and Gentlemen.
These are some of the strongest characters you can find in the anime medium. And I won't lie, all of these characters are so strong, they would just blow your mind.
And you know that they would be on another plane when you see that this segment is being started with the legendary Goku.
Goku is the main character of the Dragon Ball Franchise and he is just unreal.
Remember when I said that there are two characters people use to compare someone for strength.
Yeah, the first one is Goku. And his strength has become popular to the point that he has become somewhat of a metric himself.
I mean just think about it, he can destroy anyone and everyone without lifting a finger, most of the time.
And as the series progresses, his strength does too which means that he will get even stronger.
Right now, he is beyond the level of a God and is set to be mastering the Ultra instinct technique.
I don't think I need to say more about him. Since most of you already know how popular he is.
The bottom line, Goku is beyond strong. You can't even put it into words.
9. Sagittarius Seiya
Now we are reaching levels where the strong mark is just out of the box.
And we can't put any mark on them. With the next entry on our list, you will be certain why I am saying this.
Let's talk about Sagittarius Seiya. And I just can't put into words how strong he is.
I think most of you would have got an idea of his insane strength considering that he is put above Goku and for comparison, he can do all that Goku can't YET.
His strength involves the ability to take hits that would otherwise destroy planets without breaking a sweat.
Yup, he is a monster. And the thing is, many of you might not even know about him.
He is from the famous Saint Seiya series and I can assure you, that if he is on the battlefield, you just can't rest peacefully.
I mean, imagine being able to go against a God's attack and somehow being able to survive it.
Oh yeah, that requires a lot of skill and brute strength. And this is what Sagittarius Seiya already has but there is just so much more to him and his strength.
Now we are at the part of the list where these strengths can't be put into words.
So go ahead and watch the series to understand why this man is placed so high on our list.
You will be shocked yet satisfied.
8. Sailor Moon
I know many of you are scratching your head thinking that, "How the hell can a Shoujo anime have such a strong character?".
And to answer your question, I only have one thing to say, the concept. The concept of Sailor Moon involves beings that are strong on an interplanetary level.
Therefore, these guys are super strong and their strength is also the safeguard for those around them.
Sailor Moon is a classic anime that gained massive recognition during its release and airing.
However, one of the most overlooked aspects of it is the power level. With beings as strong as Sailor Moon, this realm is just too strong for any other anime to compete in.
The only reason why you might have not heard about this before is that this concept is from a Shoujo anime and these anime don't get recognition as much as Shonen does.
But now you know why you shouldn't ignore those magical girls. They can burn planets to ashes without breaking a sweat.
This name should be new to almost no one out there. Right from the get-go, this character gained an insane amount of popularity thanks to its design and strength.
I mean, he is the God of Destruction after all. Oh, you don't know who Beerus is?
Quite a rare individual, you are. Anyway, let me just inform you about him real quick.
Beerus is one of the main characters in the Dragon Ball Super series and he is the God of Destruction in the same.
He is also, what I believe, the junction of the Dragon Ball Series. Before his appearance, the growth in power levels in the Dragon Ball Franchise was fairly slow.
However, right from his appearance, the series started to reach new, unreal heights of strengths that just can't be matched at all.
As for Beerus' strength, I would just say that this man destroyed half of a planet just with his fingernail.
Read that again. Half a planet with just a fingernail. Don't question his capabilities ever again.
He is a legit God for a reason. And that is why he is also one of the strongest characters in all of anime.
This man right here is one of the most interesting characters you are going to find in the medium of anime.
Ryuk is one of the leading characters in the Death Note franchise but he isn't exactly the real deal.
Death Note involves more about Light Yagami and L Lawliet instead of Ryuk. This might surprise you especially once you realize that this man is the reason for the deaths of millions of people.
Being a Shinigami, he is basically invincible. The only way to kill him is if he makes a mistake.
And that mistake is fairly known in the Shinigami realm. However, to kill you, he needs nothing other than his death note.
At the start of the list, I said that Death Note has its limitations and that's why Light ranked last on this list.
However, Ryuk has default capabilities which involve seeing someone's face and realizing their name and lifespan.
So all the drawbacks he had are basically gone. In a 1v1, you can't kill Ryuk and if he sees you, he knows your name and face and now you are done.
I don't think I need to explain anymore.
5. Shinigami King
We are in the Top 5 Ladies and Gentlemen. These are the strongest of the strongest characters in the realm of anime.
And from here on out, the list will include characters that are basically Gods. There is no realistic way to beat them and they are the absolute beings in their realm.
And let's begin this segment of absolute beings with the one from Death Note itself, the Shinigami King.
I just explained defeating Ryuk is essentially impossible. But as you can see, Ryuk is just a normal Shinigami.
So you can imagine how hard it would be to kill the King of Shinigami, the one who can kill other Shinigamis.
While the series didn't show us the strength of this guy, we can still rest assured that he is one of the strongest beings we can imagine based on the information we were provided in the show.
Being the one responsible for anyone's death is a daunting task. And only the strongest can pull it off.
4. Anti Spiral
This one might come as a surprise to many of you, but allow me to introduce you to Anti Spiral.
I know many of you guys might not be aware of him or his presence in the anime medium.
But that's fine, now is your time to prepare yourself for this monster. Anti spiral is the main antagonist of the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann series.
And I won't lie, just watching this being on screen gives me shivers. He is not exactly one person but rather a group of beings who live altogether.
And if you guys have watched Ben 10, you would know about Alien X. Anti Spiral falls in the same category.
Just how Alien X is strong on a completely different plane, so is Anti Spiral but in the world of Gurren Lagann.
Plus, it is assumed by many that the King Of Anti Spiral is even stronger than what we can imagine.
So yeah, if you are making a list of super-strong anime characters, make sure that you include this monstrous being right here.
Their power levels are way over 9000.
We are in the Top 3, ladies and gentlemen. This is it. The final stretch.
And I won't lie to you guys, all three of these characters are so strong that even ranking them seems pointless.
They are perfect beings that can't be defeated by anyone and a fight amongst all three of them would result in yeh absolute destruction of the universe.
And let's start talking about these Gods with our first subject, Truth. Now for those of you who are wondering what the hell is Truth, please give me a chance to explain.
Truth is one of the side characters in the world of Fullmetal Alchemist. And why is he so strong?
Well, in the world of Fullmetal Alchemist, the absolute rule is that of equivalent exchange.
For something to be obtained, something of equal value must be given. And this rule is set by Truth himself.
Now I won't spoil you about his strength because he plays a very important role in the ending of the Fullmetal Alchemist series.
But for now, you just need to know that he is the absolute being, the God of the Fullmetal Alchemist world who is second to none.
And once you watch the series, you would also realize that his strength is not something to measure.
It is something to witness and experience. Truth is Absolute!
2. Kami Tenchi
For runner-up, we have yet another absolute being on our list. However, I am certain that many of you don't even know who he is.
And it's great because once you know about him, your mind will look at any other anime character with a sense of pity towards him.
He is Kami Tenchi, the one who is not a part of the universe, he is one!
Kami Tenchi is one of the mentioned characters in the anime known as Tenchi Muyo.
And just to explain how strong he is, let me tell you a quick fact about him.
He isn't a part of the universe, like any other being on this list. He IS the universe.
Yup, you read that correctly. Kami Tenchi is a transcended being who was beyond our comprehension.
He doesn't have any age, gender, or form to restrict him. He is far above and beyond all this and stands as the absolute being over everyone.
Without a doubt, one of the most insane and interesting characters in the anime medium.
And let's just say that when you watch the series, you would realize his true potential even better.
Kami Tenchi is Kami Tenchi. You can't compare him to anything.
And for the number 1 spot, we have Zeno. And I don't think this comes as any surprise to any one of you if you know about the background of this character.
But for those of you who don't, let me just give you a quick info plate.
Zeno is one of the side characters in the world of Dragon Ball and he is said to be the God of all Universes.
That's right, he is not the God of a planet or Galaxy, he is the God of all Universes.
He is the God of God of Gods. Too much Godliness right there. And the reason why he is placed above everyone else is that in most anime, there is only 1 universe.
But in the Dragon Ball Series, there were around 18 universes. Zeno was said to have destroyed 6 of them before.
And later, he destroyed one of them in front of our eyes. And THAT is why he is so strong.
His power levels can't be measured at all and he is the one who guides the multiverse, making him the strongest being in his series and therefore, the strongest being in all of Anime.
And that is why Zeno is at the first rank on our list. So there you have it, weebs.
These are the Top 50 Strongest Anime characters. Keep in mind that there is no metric to judge power levels in any anime so the ranks of characters on this list can vary to many of you.
Plus, this list was made for entertainment purposes and therefore, a wide variety of characters were included in this instead of making it filled with half of Dragon Ball characters.
I hope you understand. Thanks a lot for reading and until next time, Sayonara!
