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 purposes, but to make up for it, he is already very strong without his ability. In one of the light novels, he defeated Chuuya, the strongest martial artist of the 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 possesses a powerful ability, but 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 Stray Dogs. There was even a saying in the Mafia that the worst thing for Dazai's enemies was the fact they were his enemies, which speaks volumes about how feared he is among foes and how valuable an ally he is. Not to mention, he is always two steps ahead of his opponents.

2 Fyodor Dostoyevsky

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

He is supposedly strong. His ability's power has not yet been fully revealed. He is smart too.

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

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 is easily provoked into rushing into fights without having a plan, which may result in many regrettable losses. However, in terms of pure destruction, he wields a terrifyingly powerful and destructive ability that causes devastating damage, making Chuuya very hard to defeat. Not to mention, he is already physically powerful, being the strongest martial artist in the Port Mafia.

We all know his ability is terrifying, and surprisingly, he has control over most of it except for Corruption. He is really fast and undoubtedly strong in fighting. He may not be that good analytically as much as I know, but he is indeed extremely strong, especially when Dazai and he are working together.

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 would obviously win. After being blown away by Chuuya and Dazai, he just regenerated. He even said 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 on Lovecraft's (the real one) Cthulhu, which is a great power that lies in a death-like slumber beneath the Pacific Ocean.

5 Nikolai Gogol

He can... do everything. I don't understand. Help.

His ability allows him to summon anything from his coat.

Literally super strong, can summon anything from his overcoat.

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 examples of who can defeat long-distance attacks. If a sniper shoots Ivan, he can easily create a wall to block the bullet(s). He can stay in an egg made of rock, and he can make rocks float and rotate like he did in the 3rd season to protect himself. It's quite impossible to bring him to a place where stone doesn't exist. Unless you live on a planet made entirely of air, fire, water, or something else, 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!

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 favorite character, but impartially, I believe there is room for improvement. Overall, I think with time he will become the strongest character. All he has to do is have a little more faith in himself and train to become stronger. After all, he only started learning control not too long ago. I think 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.

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.

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 possibly beat him is Dazai, because of the ability No Longer Human. 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 at the top of the list. If not at the top, he should at least get second place. 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.

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. I can't wait to see the monster of an assassin she grows into.

Demon Snow is a strong ability where she controls a monster. She is 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. This is shown when Kunikida told Atsushi that it's okay even if he lost both his arms because they had Yosano.

Can heal any fatal wounds and has good physical ability.

15 Edogawa Rampo

Knowledge is the most powerful weapon, you know?

He can figure out a solution. He is literally the best detective even without an ability.

16 Kenji Miyazawa

He literally can't take most damage in combat fights. He usually has the upper hand in nearly all combat fights. However, he may be placed lower on the list due to his naturally nice personality.

I'm not giving manga spoilers about why he's really the most powerful.

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

17 Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald

The amount of wealth he wields 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

He is stronger than Dazai in martial combat. 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 who 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 Edgar's novel. This was shown in Season 3 when Chuuya almost attacked Ranpo but was blocked by Edgar's book, and they both disappeared into the novel.

21 Ogai Mori

He is the leader of the Port Mafia and is "the embodiment of logic" according to Dazai.

22 Tetchō Suehiro

The cinnamon roll hiding in plain sight.

He's the strongest hunting dog, so... yeah.
