The Top Ten

Goku is stronger then superman and all the people in cartoons
Goku by far is the greatest and strongest, his determination and courage to overcome any odds is unparalled, protagonists of other animes are like cute little babies in front of him without disrespecting any of them, he has such incredible transformations! Any damn character cannot last more than ssj3! Unless he is outsmarted and that in the extrafighting sense!
Goku is by far the Strongest Character in Anime History. Goku has a thirst for fighting and fights for the justice of his friends and family. Naruto is powerful, but Goku would come out on top. That's why he's Goku. Because Goku always shines through in the end. Even when the odds are stacked against his favor.

With His New Powers, Make's Him So Much Stronger Than Both (Ichigo and Luffy) By Feets... And Would Solo Both Of Them Without Any Problem! Still Down Below GOKU! Of Cause Who Remain The Strongest Anime Character. But Naruto Is The Most Noisy Stupid Determined, Bravest, Strong Will... And Most Selfless Anime Character He Would Lay Down His Life To Save Everyone That What's Make Him One Of A Kind And Unique... He's Anime Jesus, Who Has Surpassed All The Kage's The One and True 10Jinchiriki... Cut The So Called God Tree In Half, His Senjustu Is Unmatched Wielding Half Of The Six Path's Powers Make's Him More Scary Than Before Now Even Have a 7th Sense Acknowledged By Madara Himself He Would Beat Every Anime Character In Will Power Including GOKU! YES He Is Just Too Amazing Ichigo and Luffy Are No Where Near His Feet. And Would Remain Second Place For A Very Long Time If Not For Ever... And This is Not His Final Power Upgrade Finger Crossed That He Would Get His Final Power Ups In The Coming Manga's...
Now in the manga being held with half of the Sage's powers... Naruto deserves to stay number two on this list. Even though he's courageous, unpredictable, tricky, and just down right super fast at moving and reacting, able to blow stuff up, and disintigrate anything on a cellular or molecular level, he's not able to destroy a planet with ease unlike Goku can. But Naruto no doubt deserves second place.
A powerful character with a strong determination.

I'm sorry but really Ichigo could mop the floor with Luffy really even Natsu could burn Luffy and Ichigo could easily beat him in speed and strength. I mean the guy Cut a mountain in half with a swing seriously. Ichigo deserves 3rd he might even deserve 2nd if his new power and swords are strong enough.
Really?!? So you guys think Luffy is on par with Ichigo? Ichigo is faster and intelligent in a fight, oh and stronger, than luffy. I can honestly say Ichigo can take on Naruto and I wouldn't doubt Ichigo being the best person to "take" Goku. (other than any one in dbz universe characters on this list)! And by take I just mean lasting more than 5 minutes laugh out loud.. Obviously goku could destroy ichigo but who can't goku beat. But I just don't see ichigo lower than 3rd on this list. Hopefully he can obtain 2nd in a few years to come.
Think of it like this. Ichigo beat Aizen, even though his shinigami powers were being surpressed. He was still able to cut mountains in half like they were nothing. And if Ichigo was able to beat Aizen, who is obviously stronger than Luffy and Naruto, then there is no way in hell that Ichigo could be below them, especially now that his abilities have been unlocked to 100%.
More comments about Ichigo

Never not once has Luffy disappointed me with what he is capable of, with either strength, speed, or strategy. Luffy has all of those when it comes to fighting. Have any of you seen how many enemies he's fought. Eventually, he might as well fight everyone on this list, except Goku, Goku can kill every main character with ease. Even if it was everyone vs. Goku
Luffy can do anything he sets his mind to. It also helps that his mind is extremely simple and unchangeable. Any way you look at it, Luffy is remarkable, amazing, stretchy, and all the other awesome words that describe him including awesome.
Luffy is just amazing. His will is as strong as goku's and is stronger than Naruto's, he can use all forms of haki which gives him the power to see what's going on around him without looking and dodging blasts without any problem. Luffy already had immense strngth and his haki armament increased his strength greatly. His conquerors haki is to be feared the most, I mean he took down 50,000 fishmen without lifting a finger. His gear second and gear third are give him super speed and super strength. Luffy is just like Goku in a lot of ways, neither of them get scared, both have unbreakable wills, both love eating (a lot) and neither of them lose their minds after women. Other characters get scared at some point in the story but not these two. Luffy should be number 2 if not number 1

Vegeta at the end of GT is as powerful as Goku! Think about this: when Goku was fighting Frieza as a SuperSayan, they both had such inconceivably gigantic power levels that the supercomputers measuring them on one of Frieza's planets exploded. Now we are talking about supercomputers much more powerful then the ones on Earth because Frieza used the technology of the Tuffles who were much more advanced, so they could surely give readings of entire googlolplex ( a number so great that if written in standard form it will take more space then available in the entire known Universe which is at least 150 billion light years, and one light year is 10,000 billion km). Yet they exploded: now imagine that a character in DB like Arale has a power level around 500, but can still destroy an entire planet like Earth just with one punch. Arale can also move at Mach 1 while walking or move the planet from Mars to Venus (which is a distance of at least 141,578,000 miles) with a single stomp. She also survived being crushed between Mars and Earth with little visible damage. And all these with a power level of just 500! What can Goku SSJ or Frieza in his final form do then with a power level which is of at least one centillion with a googolplex of zeroes next to it? They can destroy centillion of planets just by touching them or move at a speed of Googleplex times greater then light for short distances ( Raditz witha power level of just 1440 can move faster then light). If they want they can effortlessly destroy centillions of universes in a trillionth of second. An yet imagine that Piccolo says that when Vegeta fights Android 19 as a Supersayan he is even more powerful then Goku Supersayan ( who King Kai says has enough power to light the entire Universe). An imagine now that Vegeta is billions (if not trillions) of times stronger, faster and more powerful as a SuperSayan 4 in DB GT! Vegeta is as powerful as Goku so he should share the first place. Not counting that many other characters of Dragon Ball, like Piccolo or Trunks or even Tien or Krillin can do similar things. So they should all be ranked before Naruto!
Vegeta would destroy Naruto, he is the 2nd strongest anime character just inches away from Goku, so vote properly!
Vegeta would kick narutos ass any day

Bills is stronger than goku.
Honestly for all the dbz fans bills is a Canon character. Akira himself wrote the storyline and everything for battle of the gods. So, a character who flicked super saiyan 3 and shut him down with ease.
Bills was only using 70 percent of his power when he was fighting goku in god mode that's why I think he should be second next to the sage of the six paths

7Gogeta SSJ4
I'm sorry but this is the most powerful anime character ever that has ever existed and ever will exist!
Just saying, I know this never happened canonically, but shouldn't Vegito SSJ4 be the strongest. not only does the earings allow you to fuse permanently (as in more than 10 minutes), but they also give you a power boost.
What is dis? Go great is vegeta and goku in fusion dis is weird. This is number 1 guys

8Madara Uchiha - Naruto
First eternal mangekyo then rinnegan and now sage of six path's power. Flames which cannot be extinguished. Can summon meteors which even the 5 kage can't handle and is big enough to destroy a city. He summons them with ease. Can create a forest in no time and with zero effort. Fights 7 of the tailed beasts barehanded and stomps them. And now god power (sage of six path's mode), no matter how much you attack him the attacks will go to his shadow dealing him 0 damage. Mangekyo stronger than itachi's. Faster than minato in kyuubi mode which means faster than light. Even goku can't beat him (dbz characters are all about raw strength, so one look at him and they are trapped forever in his genjutsu)
Not favorite anime, not favorite character, but literally the strongest of any anime in my opinion
That guy can split mountain in half without any effort at all, he can fight a shinobi army BLIND all by himself and defeat all the bijuus in no-time, actually madara made in 2 manga chapters what all the naruto shippuden antagonists wanted to do in like...400 episodes. MADARA IS TOO OP!
More comments about Madara Uchiha - Naruto

9Sage of the Six Paths
He is the creator of ninja world, he created the all jutsus, and he have rinnegan, so he can revive a dead man, no problem... Oh! When he died, he created the moon without much chakra!
He has every ability creator of all things
After he and his brother defeated the "Ten Tails" and sealed in his own body, he possessed an immesurable power and chakra (higher than his own mother's chakra who ate the Shinju's fruit).

10Kami Tenchi
He is omnipotent. Nothing to say more.
I think kami tenchi should be the strongest because if it were not because of goku's freinds and the magical beanc goku should already been dead for many times and not to mention the dragon balls which can grant wish
Omnipotence = All powerful = God = Kami Tenchi

The Contenders

11Super Saiyan God Goku
Ok. We know that Goku is the strongest character in the anime universe, being able to alter reality and cross dimensions (I mean, look at the movie Fusion Reborn) but don't you think his strongest form would be the strongest of all people? Goku, when in this state, is able to keep up with gods. I'm talking about omnipotent beings of life. In the Dragon Ball-verse, they're so powerful there are only about 20 of them in EXISTANCE. AND Goku in this form could exhaust one of these universe-crumbling gods to the point where they can only crack small pebbles. SSJG Goku wins, hands down, good day sir.
He could destroy planet
Now goku that has becamed a god other anime character are totally dead. goku need to move only one finger and it will destroy a galaxy. even madar uchiha will get vapourized by goku so easily. no one can beat a god like goku.

12Light Yagami
I read the list going down and agreed with most of it until I saw Light Yagami here. I laughed at first sight thinking, "This guy is so average compared to all the superpowered freaks above". But then I started realizing just how powerful Light really is. This is for the strongest anime character right? I am not going to go in the direction that strength comes from the mind. No, I am going to say that Light here can simply right a name down and that person is dead... over... finished. As much as I respect the other people on this list, they have their drawbacks. (For example, taking 5 episodes to draw up power; sacrificing himself in battle for his friends which is nice, but he would lose the battle which is the whole point of this poll. ) Overall, Light has the easiest chance of winning. Write the name and stay hidden for 30 seconds. No one can draw up enough power in 30 seconds which is what the animes have proven to us. it's kinda silly really. But I stick with this. Much respect to the others, but I have to throw my vote this way.

The whole reason Natsu is so strong is because he brings up his power to surpass that of his opponents (Like what he did with Sting and Rogue), so I guess in a way he can't be defeated
Natsu should be much above in the list.. After all he was included amobg the 10 wizard saints
He is the fire dragon slayer and can defeat and destroy anything
More comments about Natsu

14Whis (DBZBOG)
The strongest anime character to not fight. Akira himself said that goku is a 6, bills is a 10 and Whis is a 15. He chopped bills down with one blow. Granted he should make more appearances before he goes up higher. But, since this is most powerfulest he takes it
This man can beat bills. So he can easily beat Goku.

Assuming we are comparing these anime characters at the height of their power, Alucard would always win. After his absorption of Schrodinger, he is either onmipresent and impossible to kill, or can rely on Schrodinger as a source of unlimited lives, making him truly immortal and again, impossible to kill. From that point its just as simple as waiting for an enemy with a higher strength output, like Gogeta SSJ4 or Ichigo, to wear themselves down and then kill them.
Really the only guy who could rival Alucard would be Goku. Come on, honestly, Alucard needs to LIMIT his powers rather than actually power up. His ability to regenerate is so high that if he got Kamehameha'd, he could regenerate back to his regular form within a few seconds. A battle between them would be fairly well matched.
Come on guys!, seriously? , Alucard can beat the crap out of any other character in this list in seconds, even boku and if you don't know, please watch Hellsing (OVAS)

16Super Saiyan 4 Goku
Obviously goku ssj4 is the most powerful anime character ever, as goku is a high tier cosmic manipulator with psychic powers. Goku has instant transmission which he used to travel to th other side of th universe in the movie yoo goku and his frinds return, and a plan to destroy the saiyans. DBGT kid goku destroyed a dimension galaxy with his kamehameha and SSj4 got 10 times the kamehameha DbgT kid goku that destroyed a galaxy. SsJ god is just another form to fully confirm to haters that goku is a god or above gods as kami was a god and SSj 4 is far more powerful,

17Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta

18Kenpachi Zaraki
He does not yet know the name of his zanpakto. and he still gives every one he face hell. laugh out loud he just raw uncut

19Sōsuke Aizen - Bleach
Aizen could easily have killed ichigo but because of Kiskue urahara he was deafeted.

20Itachi Uchiha
Epicness, cool, smart, genius, the coolest anime character in entire anime world.
Itatchi has fully mastered the power of the sharingun and is more powerful than madara himself. Being able to become black ops at such a young age is no picnick and should be number 5 or above

21Gogeta Super Saiyan

Ultimate Gohan >>>>>>> SSJ3 Goku

SSJ2 Kid Gohan >>>>>>> MSSJ Goku

In the Cell Games and in the end of dbz he was the strongest character


24Lord of Nightmares (Slayers)


26Lain Iwakura

Like 1 wise 10year old once said, "his power is maximum! "
He brings nightmares to all! Not only strongest but berserker too!
He needs to be number 6.

28Super Vegito
Smart. Badass. Powerful. Genius in battle. Cool. FTL. Makes good jokes. If he can go ssj God, he will be undeniably the most powerful anime character ever
He is the fusion of two most powerful anime characters. He has Goku's strategic mind and Vegita's cleverness



31Silver Surfer

32Phoenix Ikki - Saint Seiya

The Pirate that reigns supreme Strongest Pirate in One Piece. I mean he could easily take out Luffy the show even says so and he doesn't even have Devil Fruit.

34Sasuke Uchiha
Okay the Naruto characters are so mixed up in order. Sasuke and Naruto are equal in strength, but it is okay for Naruto to be higher on the list because he is the character. However not that far ahead. Secondly Sasuke killed Itachi so he should be higher on the list. Also Sasuke should be higher than Obito because who knows how strong he would be without Madara. Lastly Madara should be higher than both Naruto and sasuke because neither of them could beat madara.
Sasuke is a boss and he tamed lighting. He has half of the power of the sage of six paths. He has a rinnegan ans EMS, he has the best susann'o and has the best blaze release. Naruto has the 1234578 and 9 tailed beast and he's still on the same level as him or even stronger. He cam do any lighting jutsu created. He also has most of oruchimara's abilities. He a boss, he deserves to be in the top 10 not 37. But I think he should fight ichigo even though he would win. And plus he is fighting a goddess and he not even in his strongest mode so that proves that he is a boss. JS
Assume is about to get the rinnegan! He should be a lot higher on this poll

35Death The Kid - Soul Eater
He's the son of Death himself, he's gonna be hella tough.

36Father - Fullmetal Alchemist
After he absorbs god he can beat anyone, seriously. altough it's cancelled like 5 seconds later.


38Uchiha Obito

39Roronoa Zoro
He's almost as strong a Luffy and that's pretty impressive, I'd like to see what a battle like that would turn out like after the 2 year time skip. Next to that he has to be one of the biggest badasses I've ever seen.
Zoro is the most awesome swordsman ever. he is stupid brainless arrogant and has no sense of direction ever. but I would like to see a death match between zoro and ichigo
Zoro and luffy are some of the most strongest one piece characters. Zoro and luffy are actually on the same level. Zoro would kill luffy if they fought. He would cut him up into pieces.
More comments about Roronoa Zoro

40Levi Rivaille (Shingeki no Kyojin)
I even think that he should be the 3nd ><

41Hashirama Senju
Hashirama should be in the top ten, his the only ninja to have beaten madara uchiha and Naruto that is 2nd couldn't even beat Madara alone.
He is considered to be the strongest shinobi or ninga in Naruto, and he is called the god of all ninga. we all saw the overwhelming power of madara and it is mentioned in the story that he have beaten madara many times alone and even madara recognized him alone as a true ninga

He would easily tear up everyone under 3rd place
He can kick goku s ass
Guildarts is stronger way Guko. He can beat anyone


Why isn't this in the top fives?


46Dragon God (Project Ko)

His ea can simply destroy the world so I won
He's incredible in power and mind, so I bet he can tie enemy with enkidu chain and burst it with gate of babylon and enuma elish

48L Lawliet

49Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail
She is the top 3 Strong Fairy Tail. I bet she can go toe to toe with Naruto

50Haruka Kaminogi

51Mario Minakami

52Edward Elric
Naruto: I'm the best ninja that's ever lived, and I'm gonna kick your butt!

Ed: *Transmutes a rocket launcher* not today!

You can kamehameha him and it wont do anything you can use planet shredding stacks and it wont hurt him do I even need to explain, I mean every attack you use will come back to you and you can't block his attacks its simply pointless to fight unless you have prepared yourself to kill him like the academy city scientists who created weapon specifically to counter him, and this is supposing you know his abilities so you won't punch him and get you body into pieces before you even realize the mistake you did
He can control vector and almost untouchable

Nagato is really tough and he destroyed the whole of the hidden leaf pain has no blind spot he is almost a god

55Mariko - Elfen Lied

56Chi-Chi (Dragon Ball)
He is Goku's wife and the only one who can destroy Goku... Goku is afraid of her!
Chi-Chi literally GG and its true that Goku is afraid of her

57Lina Inverse

58Yusuke Urameshi
YUSUKE at 39th place... I can't believe it.

59Lelouch Vi Britannia
He has the power of absolute obedience and he can command all characters above to die just by looking at their eyes and speak.
If you look into his eyes you lost

60Portgas D. Ace


62Soul Eater Evans - Soul Eater


64Sakamaki Izayoi
Laugh out loud he even beat a god with one kick. nobody in this list could beat this guy.

65Oga Tatsumi - Beelzebub
He can beat even the toughest delinquents, usually with no more than a single punch

66Elder God Demonbane (Demonbane)

67Doraemon (Doraemon)
Have everything in his pocket

68Beyond Birthday - Death Note

69Schiffer Ulquiorra
He's quick, deadly and doesn't care about what he's going to do to you or what's going to happen to him, he has no emotions and that triggers his fearless attacks. Lanza De Lerampago is probably equivelant to a Nuke! And he can fire as many as he likes, not to mention, extremely fast self healing. Underrated, should be in the top 10
He should be in a highest place
Strong Enough To Kill Anyone
More comments about Schiffer Ulquiorra

70Super Gogeta


He shouldn't be on this. Just like galactus. They aren't classified as anime. As a huge anime fan, galactus is a galaxy buster without trying. His power level isn't the same anyone on this list. So, thor and him shouldn't be on it.


74Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (Rai) - Noblesse
He obliterated two elders all by himself without breaking a sweat, what more needs to be said?



77Killua Zoldyck


79Marshall D. Teach

80Medaka Kurokami

He weilds a sword name tetsiega, is the HOTTEST anime charater, half demon and can survive a hole in the stomach and still live what guys have you ever had a hole in your stomach and lived my god NO... He lived and that's got to be tough... ughh you people vote!

He is re birth of Kid Buu and if I am right Kid Buu learns while fighting and gets stronger, the same would go to Uub he learns while fighting and gets stronger just like a Saiyan he is one of the strongest character.

From xenosaga the animation she can destroy almost all enemy force space ships or monster

84Sailor Moon
That is obviously in he's final form he can defeat even galaxie and chaos

85Rin Okumura
He is probably stronger than levi

86Haruhi Suzumiya
She is God. I know the anime Meloncholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is not so well known. Its about this eccentric girl who doesn't know it but is God. She possesses the power to destroy and recreate the universe in a heartbeat.
She is god. Though she doesn't know it she has the most potential. She is the oldest, omnipotent, omnibenevolent, omniscient being.


88"Whitebeard" Edward Newgate (The One Piece)

89Misogi Kumagawa - Medaka Box
I seriously can't believe Kumagawa is so low in the chart. This guy is practically invincible, he has a power called "ALL FICTION" which can erase anything's existence so anime characters like Naruto, ichigo or goku etc aren't much trouble for him because he can just erase their existence from the world in just a second or maybe he might erase their powers and just stab them with his screws

90Roy Mustang

91Kaguya Ootsutsuki
Yo did you guys forget kaguya the sage of the six paths mom do you know how strong she is she can defeat goku with just a finger


93Simon the Digger
Simon from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann can easily throw galaxies and is able to create a bigbang in his Lagann. I believe simon should be on top because I highly doubt ( I'm a big fan if DBZ ) that goku or bills could even stand a chance. Yes yes they can blow up planets, but who can take multiple big bangs and galaxies. Not goku I can tell you that much. Simon the digger's drill will be the drill that'll piercehev fI tlain't v heaven!

94Yukiteru Amano
Not at his normal form but at his GOD form when he can controll everything and he is unbeatable. I think he deservers to be at this list.

He is pretty much a god, nobody of the god main saints could've defeated him without the help of Athena. He created the whole Hell, in fact when he got beaten by the 5 god saints and Athena the world he created disappeared.
It's stated to be the strongest god between them all in the saint seiya universe. His strenght is bigger than the ultimate attack "Athena Exclamation", and as we all know that attack is considered as strong as the Big Bang explosion that created the universe. Hades wins this.

96Yujiro Hanma - Baki the Grappler
I can't believe no one has put him on the list, he has never been seen injured.

97Clow Reed
Supreme Power, Reality Warping, Time Distortion, Omnipotent Wishes, Dimensional Collapse and Creation, Instantaneous Warping, Infinite Energy, Can Only Die by a Wish from himself

98Shiba Tatsuya


100Yoshikage Kira
