Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

Anime is a vast section of modern entertainment and is hailed and consumed by many people. Anime is a style of animated shows and movies produced majorly in Japan and rooted there as well. To clarify some misconceptions, anime is not made for kids; its content is mainly for adult audiences. With that being said, it has some fantastic movies and shows for people of every age and preference,

To categorize the top 10 anime characters by strength is a very tough task since each anime happens in its universe and has different aspects to look into. There are also so many animes that it's hard to take into account each anime and then shortlist them, but a community effort has been made with some rules to define a list. The weebs (experienced anime lovers who have watched a lot of anime and have a high general knowledge and strong emotional connection to anime) still argue a lot due to the subjectivity of the topic, naturally preferring their favorite anime and its main character. This list is be created by a consensus of many forums and anime societies worldwide and the top-charting anime by viewers and awards.

1. Zeno - Dragon Ball Super

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

Zeno's powers are world-defying for us as he can manipulate the rule of conservation of mass. His ability to delete and create things from nothing is an absolute mockery of science. The anime universe does not have to follow the rules we do, but such an enormous power is a definite cheat for anyone. Dragon ball is ranked as the most popular anime of many years, and there are no weebs who wouldn't have heard of it. It might even be a criterion to judge if someone is weak. We follow a Saiyan named Goku, who plans to collect the seven dragon balls from summoning a dragon, and how he grows in strength and magnitude.

2. Saitama - One Punch Man

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

Saitama is a middle-aged man who trained very hard, so hard that he started losing hair and went utterly bald with no body hair left on him. He became so powerful that any enemy of any magnitude became nothing compared to him. The title of the series, "one punch man", refers to him, as it doesn't take much more than one punch from him to finish any enemy. Still, only diehard fans know that even his planet-shattering punches are controlled and pulled back. He has an extremely hard body, which can take the hit of being flung on the moon from the earth with no scratch, and his character writing can only be described as broken. How he got his powers is a series of 'extreme' exercises. While his friends struggle to win against opponents, so much so that they sometimes decide to self-destruct to impact enemies significantly, Saitama's only trouble is the lack of enemies that can fight him. A well-drawn, written, and animated series with world vast cult following, which is irritating for the release of season 3, teased for a long time but not yet published. The manga continues the story of Saitama and his friends defeating great enemies with willpower, teamwork, and effort.

3. Rimuru Tempest - That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

Rimuru Tempest is one of the most loved isekai in the world, with insanely good character development and good story. Starting from his death on earth, Satouru Mikami gains skills and gets reincarnated in the cardinal world, where magic is possible. Long story short, it takes him less than two years to build a massive empire and restructure the world, fighting off any problems that arise and standing toe to toe with the most powerful beings in the universe while making insanely good companions and servants who worship him.

Rimuru's powers include an insane amount of growth potential, universal knowledge of everything, an AI-like calculative power, and quantum computer-defying calculation speeds. He can manipulate space, time and magical elements at will with insanely growing accuracy while upgrading his allies' powers to the max. His powers, combined with his sensei and partner great sage, make him able to pull off impossible things, from raising the dead to defeating dragons, an easy task. His cunning plans and foresight make him a formidable opponent and a scary ally. Combining those, he also has favorable luck and timing, which overall make him a carrier of miracles, where his friends always complain about the size of the sheer impossible phenomenon that happens naturally around him. He is already a god to those who are under him. The writer, fuse, is a fantastic, imaginative writer to create such an anime and universe.

4. Mob - Mob Psycho 100

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

We can not miss Shigeo Kageyama, more popularly known as a mob in this list. The story of the mob is an amazing one. It starts with the mob, the main character, who is an eighth grader and esper, meaning he has telekinetic and psychological powers of unbelievable scale. Still, he doesn't know about them yet. He can haul heavy things, lift tons of material, and accurately assemble and disassemble intricate mechanisms. His telekinetic strength has no match in the anime universe (the writer of one punch man and mob psycho 100 are the same, and both often refer to each other). This Saitama with hair also has a hidden Manas in him, which is released when the mob reaches his limits of power, his mind goes unconscious, and a being and power of a level unknown to the whole universe takes it over. Mob's powers are teased about being able to absorb others as he did with a former victim of this ability and grow, which could bring his already terrible powers to break the upper limit. The viewers await the next season to know more.

5. Saiki Kusuo - The Disastrous Life of Saiki K

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

This lesser-known and popular anime character is the protagonist of this anime. He lives a life much like superman, having incredible powers but hiding them from everyone in his life. Saiki can grow his body size variably and become small or gigantic depending on the need of the hour; he also has telepathy and levitation abilities and the ability to project images.

Superhuman strength is a common trait of all characters in this list and Saiki's. He has the speed and strength of many orders of magnitude more than the strongest people on earth. He is unpredictable and a surefire disadvantage for his foes if he appears in a fight. His character design is also confident, beautiful, and well-carved.

6. Korosensei - Assassination Classroom

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

Have you ever felt that a teacher in a classroom is way too troubled by their students? Well, this teacher has to handle his students who want to murder him, and teach them how to murder themselves. Korosensei is a human in name but a flexible fluid like an octopus in body composition, which has no vulnerabilities except a unique material. He can reach the speeds of Mach 20 faster than the world's fastest fighter jets by multiple times. His show of strength was to blow up more than half of the moon, so it looked crescent indefinitely. He can catch bullets, recover superfast, and teach with insane abilities like a superhuman. His wish he has given the world's leaders a request to let him teach the worst class of the top school in their country for one year, or he will destroy the whole world. His character cares a lot about the kids, protecting them from every problem, and he mourns his loved one, and he is cunning and manipulative. Watch this anime, as he helps his students grow in every way with unprecedented scale and also actively dodges their murder attempts.

7. Kyubey - Madoka Magica

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

For people who do not have a lot of knowledge in science, entropy means the randomness and position/state of material and energy. Everything wants to move to a more random and less structured state, which is the law of thermodynamics. Kyubey is entropy. He has command over people and the material world to increase entropy, or in layman's terms, destroy the world. He is omnipotent and will destroy everything in existence, no matter how long it takes. Since he's all-powerful, time is irrelevant to him, and his plans can be well thought out and long-stretched. Still, in the universe of Madoka Magica, there exist very few characters who can stand a chance against him.

8. Kaguya Otsutsuki - Naruto

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

Yes, a character from Naruto verse is on this list. The rabbit goddess, Kaguya Otsutsuki, is an alien not from earth but hops over here in pursuit of god's fruit. She wishes to consume it and gain powers. After eating the fruit, she could heal herself, making her near invincible even during mortal fights. Although Naruto from her time is very powerful, she was not defeated by Naruto alone and is the strongest villain of the series. Her ability to read memories, manipulate them, and consume them and her other powers like teleportation, spatial movement and physical and kinetic prowess make her the most formidable enemy of humanity, which was her goal of her all along to unite society, which worked flawlessly.

Naruto is one of the most loved and watched anime in the world and one of the old ones, following a small kid, with the spirit of one of the most dangerous beings trapped inside him. It's a lot like harry potter, a kid with a part of his soul in him trapped when his parents died, and he wants to become the best of his kind while fighting off enemies to the death and gaining friends along the way, such as Sakura and his teacher Kakashi, eventually having his own family. Naruto is a determined and high-spirited member of the hidden leaf village in the world of ninjas, where enemies lurk everywhere, and everyone wants to usurp everyone. Naruto wants to grow up to be the Hokage and rule his clan, the anime follows this beautifully written and expressed protagonist for nearly 2000 episodes, with Naruto, Boruto (Naruto's kid), and other connected anime series. Naruto is also unpopular for its recap episodes or fillers with no new story. Yet, it is arguably the most popular anime and named with the big names in anime like bleach, one piece, and dragon ball z.

9. Simon - Gurren Lagann

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

In the popular Mecha Animes, Gurren Lagann is a critically acclaimed name. With its story and development, Gurren Lagann has been charted on the list of top animes. Simon is the lord of reality and life. Although he is a simple earthling, Simon can drive a mech (a giant robotic battle robot that one or more people control) which is the size of a galaxy, to be able to imagine that size is impossible, as well as fight against it for a human being is unthinkable. Simon can create drill-like projectiles, and their power can only be imagined if they are that big. It is defined to be so powerful that it can rip apart reality itself. Taking up Simon is near impossible for anyone, but the contenders higher on this list can defeat him with other means than physical, while the top rankers on this list, as hard as it may seem, defeat him quite easily.

10. Eren Yeager - Attack on Titan

Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters

AOT fans must be cheering right now! With the new season and development of the show, the fans are having a ton of fun. Eren, the commander of an army of Titans, fifty meters tall and a regenerative force of thousands, which can bring even the most prominent nations to their knees. Eren controls them cardinally. Eren himself can transform into a fifteen-meter Titan that can heal itself and has immense battle insight and speed. In his universe, Eren is a force of nature. Still, he is at the bottom of the list, not because he isn't powerful, but because other characters of other animes already have many ways to fight more significant and powerful enemies than him. As well as using magic, thought manipulation, time manipulation, reality destruction, and anti-matter attacks, they can defeat someone like Eren. Still, when we restrict the universe of Attack on Titan to its rule, just like Chess to its own rules, it becomes evident how powerful Eren is.
