Most Powerful Bungou Stray Dogs Characters

The Top Ten
1 Osamu Dazai Osamu Dazai (太宰 治, Dazai Osamu?) is a major character in the manga and anime series, Bungou Stray Dogs and a member of the Armed Detective Agency and former executive of the underworld organization, the Port Mafia.

There are many reasons why Dazai can be considered the most powerful character in the show:
1. He has an extremely rare and powerful ability, No Longer Human, which allows him to nullify any ability upon contact.
2. He's physically very strong and fast : Dazai's ability is not suitable for offensive purpose, but to make up for it, Dazai is already very strong without his ability. In one of the light novels, he defeated Chuuya, the strongest martial artist of Port Mafia who can easily shatter a wall with one kick, in hand to hand combat. He is also so fast that he can dodge bullets with ease.
3. He is very intelligent : Not only is Dazai physically strong and have a powerful ability, he's also very smart and cunning. He's the mastermind behind many schemes, and is a master of manipulation and interrogation. It has been said that no-one has failed to spill everything in the face of Dazai's methods.
All of these make Dazai the most formidable and dangerous character in Bungou ...more

Dazai has a really strong ability to nullify abilities. Although it is not suited for combat, Dazai knows how to use it properly.
He is cunning, manipulative and it is said that his predictions were never wrong. In the light novel it is said that he could see threw anything (he could see through everything)
He has great great speed and has good amount of strength.
Most importantly he can get people to do what he wants, he can manipulate them and get the outcome he wants.

So basically he has OP ability and terrifying intelligence that makes him number 1

Dazai is strong but honestly the only reason he is this high is because of his character popularity. Yeah, he's incredibly smart and he's got a unique power that can win many fights, but I really don't see how that makes him the strongest, especially if he needs to touch the opponent in order for his power to be effective. There are other characters on this list that deserve to be higher SPECIFICALLY in terms of their ability. (still love this boi tho don't get me wrong)

-His ability is to non-activate any supernatural powers for a pretty long time after he touched them.
-Not to mention he's tactical and smart.
-Also, he's neutral (meaning he doesn't care who he's opposing) and doesn't fear death.
-Since he doesn't fear death, that makes him treat his enemies according to his will and doesn't even care about their lives.
These are the reasons why Dazai Osamu is one of the most dangerous and badass characters I know. I love him so much

2 Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Just as smart and cunning as Dazai, with an ability that supposedly kill people just by touching them. Enough said.

Is supposedly strong. His ability's power has not yet been fully revealed. Smart too.

He can kill people with them basically breathing his breath So...is that enough.

Everything is part of his plan.

3 Chuuya Nakahara Chūya Nakahara (中原 中也, Nakahara Chūya?) is a recurring antagonist in the Japanese manga and anime series, Bungou Stray Dogs and a member of the Port Mafia as well as Dazai's former partner in Twin Dark. He is one of the five Executives in the Port Mafia. He has the Ability named Upon the Tainted ...read more.

He's a complete hothead and he is really easily provoked into rushing into fights without having a plan, which may results in many regrettable losses of his. However, in terms of pure destruction, he weilds a terrifyingly powerful and destructive ability which causes devastating damage, making Chuuya very hard to defeat. Mot to mention he is already physically powerful, being the strongest martial artist in the Port Mafia.

Well, we all know his ability is terrifying and surprisingly he has control on most except for corruption. He is really fast and undoubtedly strong in fighting. He may not be that good in analitical as much as I know but he is indeed extremely strong especially when Dazai and him are working together.

Guy's not dependent on his ability, proving him to still beat Dazai up even if hi ability was nullified.

Best martial artist in the port mafia and he also can send Kenji, Which is the strongest member in the ADA physically wise, flying without using his ability, Plus he merged with arahabaki, God of destruction, Which gained him more power

4 Howard Phillips Lovecraft

It's heavily implied that he's actually "The Great Old One". Dazai was not able to nullify his "ability" Which means it's not an "ability". He is so nonchalant that if he did care about defeating anyone he'll obviously win since after being blown by Chuuya and Dazai he just regenerated. And he even said so himself that since his contract is done he'll go back to sleep. I'm absolutely 100% sure that he's not human. He's based off Lovecraft's (the real one) "Cthulhu" that is "a great power that lies in a death-like slumber beneath the Pacific Ocean".

I literally don't know why people think Chuuya, Dazai or any other character is the strongest (especially because they always win because it's that type of anime even though I wish it wasn't)...when there's LOVECRAFT; why tf do people sleep on him when he's actually a multidimensional being that's immortal who by the way is actually Cthulhu. But I do love how he's portrayed as this neutral, IDGAF force because he's a god and they aren't worth his time. Plus it's crazy because once you realize that Lovecraft is basically going easy because he's lazy and sleepy and using like 10-20% of his power... just sayin.

He's still alive and unscathed after Chuuya chuckled some black holes at him...

extra-dimensional creatures that cannot die and can always regenerate are an extraordinary force. taken from the actual call of cthulhu reference. the power of the great old one is really deadly, the real great old one is the group of lovecraft monsters and Cthulhu, one of the spectacular and great.

5 Nikolai Gogol

He can... Do everything I don't understand help

Because his ability allow him to summon anything from his coat

6 Arahabaki
7 Ivan Goncharov

I don't think he "deserves" to be only in 8th place (yeah, at the moment he is in this position). Ivan, Chuuya and Akutagawa are the examples of who can defeat a long-distance attack. If a sniper shoots Ivan he can easily create a wall to block the bullet(s), he can stay in a egg made of rock, he can make rocks floate and rotate like he did in 3rd season to protect himself... And it's quite impossible to bring him in a place where the stone doesn't exist. At least, I don't know if you live in a planet completely made of air, fire, water or something else but you are safe from that Russian.
I finished my reasons, and I'm sorry for my Grammar mistakes. I hope you understood what I tried to say!

He does possess a super powerful ability indeed. He also knows how to use his powers effectively.

8 Arthur Rimbaud
9 Atsushi Nakajima

As time progresses I think we will find that Atsushi becomes the strongest character in the series. Aside from his lack of experience (already shown to be growing stronger each season as his experience grows), his only downside is his self image. When he becomes confident in himself I think we will see him merge with the weretiger and become the strongest person in the show.

My fave character but impartially I believe there is room for improvement and overall think with time he will become the strongest character.All he has to do is have a little more fate in himself and train to become more stronger after all he only started learning control not to long,I for one thinks once he learns to control his power he would be unstoppable.I would very much like to see Atsushi bond with the beast within him.

Atsushi may not look strong but give him time he'll be the strongest character soon I mean after all they are making a season 3 which airs in April 2019 I can't wait to see who the new cast will be, and how they will bring the characters to life. Just like the original group.

Because he has potential, and that every season, episodes he is growing more and more stronger.
His weak is because of his lack of experience.

10 Ryūnosuke Akutagawa

His ability, as powerful as it already is, has yet more potential. So does his character. If he weren't so mentally unstable, he would easily top this list in my opinion

On par with atsushi

I love this man

The Contenders
11 Sakunosuke Oda

Dazai himself says just how powerful Odasaku's ability is. If it weren't for the leader of Mimic, Odasaku would still be alive, and able to beat the armed detective agency if he was willing. The only one who could even possibly beat him is Dazai, because of the ability "no longer human". And if I'm correct, I believe Dazai said that he didn't have the skills to beat Odasaku. That would mean Odasaku is stronger than the guy on the top of the list. And if not top, he should at least get second. He could even beat Akutagawa's Rashoumon flawlessly. He could've been the boss of the Port Mafia if it weren't for his dream of becoming a writer, which gave him his reason never to kill.

His ability is very convenient and powerful. I believe that he is one of the few characters that might be able to defeat Dazai due to the nature of his powers. He is also very wise, calm and collected, which is a plus, though not as cunning as Dazai. Had he been more willing to kill, I'm sure he would have become a Mafia executive.

His ability is really strong but the other things is his skill as an assassin. If you read the light novel Origin of the Detective Agency: Untold Story.
Even with his eyes blindfolded, he can still shoot precisely at the target. Even putting ability aside, he's still one of the best fighting skill.

Oda should defiantly be number 1 as in Dazai's own words "he could kill everyone in the port mafia, even me and we wouldn't be able to do anything"...With an ability that can only be matched by his own ability he should be top tier!

12 Yumeno Kyusaku Q

Q should most definitely be higher on the list due to his dangerous ability.

Mind control is always OP. They had to lock and chain this guy 24/7 to keep him under control

13 Kyouka Izumi

Kyouka is scarily strong and mature for her age. She is already capable of rivaling people who are older and more experienced. Can't wait to see the monster of an assassin she grows into.

Demon Snow, a strong ability where she controls a monster. Strong in hand to hand combat too.

14 Yosano Akiko

She's really strong in hand-to-hand combat. Her ability, Thou Shalt Not Die, is a healing ability, able to heal any fatal injuries, as well as restore body parts, as shown when Kunikida told Atsushi that it's ok even if he lost both his arms because they had Yosano.

Can heal any fatal wounds and has good physical ability.

She is so powerful

15 Edogawa Rampo

The knowledge is the most powerful weapon, you know ?

Because he is my bae

Can figure out a solution, he is literally the best detective even without an ability

I love this man.

16 Kenji Miyazawa

He literally can't take most damage, in combat fights.

He usually has the upper hand in nearly all combat fights.

But he may be but down the list for his personality of being naturally to nice.

Super Duper cute. And that's a FACT thank you very much.

My ray of sunshine

17 Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald

The amount of wealth he yields translates to his power. At the end of season 2, I'd say he'd be the most powerful, gifted character other than Chuuya and Dazai.

It depends on how much money he's got, but if he is as rich as he was when fighting Atsushi and Akutagawa, he'd be a force to be reckoned with.

I don't understand how he is this low, he should at LEAST be on par with akutagawa and atsushi because of season 2

18 Kouyou Ozaki
19 Doppo Kunikida

Stronger than Dazai in martial combat since they switched places in one of the fights to specialize based on their strengths. Kunikida took on someone so physically strong that Dazai was getting beaten up.

20 Edgar Allan Poe

He can take anyone that reads his book into that world, it's a perfect trap.
One's curiosity would peek into the book and with one peek they'd be in Edgars novel, as proof in season 3 where Chuuya almost attacked Ranpo with bunch was blocked by Edgars book and they both dissappeared into the novel.

21 Ogai Mori

The leader of the port mafia and is "the embodiment of logic" according to Dazai.

22 Shizuo Heiwajima

Why the hell is one of the main protagonists of Durarara here?

Why is he this low on the list?

23 Tetchō Suehiro

The cinnamon roll hiding in plain sight.

He's the strongest Hunting dog soo... Yeah

So precious and strong

24 Ouchi Fukuchi
25 Saigiku Jouno

Smart and strong
