Top 10 Strongest Anime Characters of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Goku (Dragon Ball) Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. His real name was suppose to be Kakarrot because that's his Saiyan name, and he is the son of Badrock, and Gina. His brother was Raditz. When they sent Goku (Kakarrot) to Earth his grandfather Gohan took care of him. Later on Goku didn't realize it when he was a kid, but he killed his grandfather Gohan because it was a full moon, and Goku looked at it, so he turned into a giant ape.

Goku is a character who always wants to get stronger and fight stronger opponents. This would be impossible if he were already the strongest. He is intentionally written as a character who overcomes adversity and reaches new heights. If he were the strongest person in existence, there would be no reason for him to exist. In that regard, Goku is inspirational. However, his life would be without meaning if he had no one who could give him a run for his money. If Goku were the strongest character in anime, all of Dragon Ball Super would consist of him farming and raising his family.

Goku is definitely stronger. Simon uses the keyword MECH to accomplish everything he's been able to do, while Goku's strength is natural and relies only on himself. Gurren Lagann is more about not giving up when times are tough. No one can really compare to Goku because he gets stronger every time he's pushed against the wall.

Even if Goku were to lose, he would just come back even stronger. Those of you who compare Goku to Superman should also realize that Superman's power is more constant. It stays where it is. It's also noteworthy that, unlike Goku, Superman has an actual weakness that has been exploited on more than one occasion.

Goku is the legendary anime character, a living legend since he is very much alive in the new series. No one comes close to this anime god. Watching all episodes of Dragon Ball Z and GT even brought me to tears. I think almost every other anime character possesses some traits of Goku. For example, Naruto is heavily inspired by Goku and the entire Dragon Ball series. However, Naruto is nothing more than an overly talkative, foolish guy. He talks too much before bringing about change in others' characters, whereas Goku's mere presence is enough for the opposite character to change their resolve.

Goku can attempt to become a God, which alone is enough to put him at number 1. Goku can move faster than the speed of light. Additionally, we haven't seen his full potential yet, since he is still training to become stronger. I like Naruto, but I have to say that Goku could destroy the entire Naruto universe alone, including Kaguya. Goku's only weakness is his desire to become stronger by fighting other people. While Goku may not be the most intelligent anime character, he is always getting stronger so he can defeat his foes.

2 Saitama (One-Punch Man) Saitama is the main protagonist of the webcomic and anime series One Punch Man, who could easily destroy a continent with one punch. He is bored with his extreme power. He is registered with the Heroes Association as a C-Class Superhero and is tasked to defend Z-City against Mysterious Beings.

He is the strongest, by definition. He can defeat anybody with only one punch while being invincible at the same time. Son Goku? Saitama defeats him with one punch. Alucard? He can regenerate all he wants, just to be destroyed to a crisp with one punch. Nothing can hurt him.

He has different weaknesses than any other character. How does he pay the bills? Why doesn't anyone know him, or better said, why isn't he famous? And how does he avoid the awful boredom of winning every fight with just one punch?

He usually isn't even serious while fighting and fools around most of the time. Despite this, he is capable of destroying the whole planet with just one simple punch.

Honestly, Saitama is a gag anime and manga character. His sole existence is to poke fun at anime characters who undergo intense training procedures to get stronger, while Saitama does semi-hard training exercises in just three years. If you watch the Film Theorist episode about Saitama, you will see that if Saitama gives it his all, he can reset the universe. This is a feat that, as of this date, only Zen-Oh Sama can achieve. The closest any of the other anime characters on this list get to this power is Whis with rewinding the space-time continuum, but that's only for 5 minutes. Saitama can literally reset space and time, something none of the top 10 anime characters, as of me writing this, can do. Now, if Zen-Oh Sama were put on this list, then it's really up for debate whether Saitama is the strongest.

Invincible, with strength so great he's never found an opponent who challenges him in the slightest, his physical might is only challenged by the strength of his heart. Never wavering from his ideals, he takes the hatred of others without flinching to protect those he respects.

His challenges don't come from defeating strong opponents, but from trying to live a fulfilling life while completely isolated from his neighbors. He has no peers and only the loosest ability to live in traditional society. When it comes to being a heroic inspiration, he's not great. But in terms of raw, physical might, no ninja or Saiyan can compare.

In one part of One-Punch Man, Dr. Genus talks about how every living organism in the known universe has a limit to how much power it can obtain before it begins to overwhelm the host. He then proceeds to explain that Saitama has somehow managed to break his limiter, allowing him to seemingly grow infinitely stronger no matter the circumstances. It was intentional that Saitama has virtually never been seen taking any kind of damage, making it almost impossible to scale his power because there's never been anything to compare it to.

So if you compare Saitama to Goku (which everyone has), it doesn't really matter if Saitama is stronger or weaker at the time, because he will continue to grow stronger and stronger until he's... stronger. This is how Saitama was intentionally designed by ONE. So even if Saitama isn't the strongest character in anime (which I'm pretty sure he is, guaranteed, but someone's probably already explained that), all he needs is another couple of years of ...more

3 Vegeta (Dragon Ball) Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Why is Vegeta ranked behind Naruto? He is only slightly weaker than Goku. During the Saiyan saga, he had enough power to easily destroy planets. This is demonstrated when he effortlessly destroyed Planet Arlia with a power level of 18,000 - although power levels are meaningless. Since then, he has gotten thousands of times stronger and is capable of performing Superman-like feats with ease. (Superman would beat him in a fight, though.) He is even able to hold his own against gods, but not defeat them.

Sure, my opinion here is pretty biased towards Dragon Ball Z, but I don't think Naruto - who is ridiculously powerful with his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and all - would be able to hold a candle to Vegeta.

Vegeta is barely weaker than Goku! How is he lower than Naruto, while Goku is higher? I think that all DBZ characters, besides the really weak ones, are stronger than all of the other anime characters. This is because DBZ has a ridiculously endless amount of possibilities in terms of what physics can be denied and how powerful each character can get. Vegeta should be just one space away from Goku, wherever in the ranks Goku may end up.

As per the Battle of Gods, it can be proved that Vegeta is stronger than Goku even when he is in his 2nd form, as opposed to Goku's 3rd form. Goku was knocked out in two blows by Beerus and couldn't even land one hit on him. This makes him weaker than Vegeta, who did manage to deliver some impressive blows to Lord Beerus. This proves that Vegeta, in his second state alone, is stronger than Goku in his third.

Furthermore, Vegeta was actually the one who gave Frieza a sound thrashing in Battle of Gods 2, while Goku was injured before the laser scene itself. Vegeta took mere minutes to beat Golden Frieza, clearly proving that he should be ranked first or second. He is a god, way stronger than Naruto, for your information.

Vegeta can become more than a god. He can increase his power level past that of a god. He could destroy countless worlds. Frieza, in his base form, blew up Planet Vegeta. He then transforms into a huge version of himself, transforms again, and becomes even stronger. In that state, he's defeated by a Super Saiyan. There are Super Saiyan 2, 3, and God forms that are all weaker than SSGSSJ. Goku is defeated while in an SSGSSJ form, which means Golden Frieza - the form above the one that's defeated by SSJ Goku - is stronger than SSJ2, 3, and God.

Frieza destroyed a planet in his base form. Vegeta could one-hit a world destroyer and not even put in effort as an SSGSSJ. If you think it through, this means Vegeta, in SSGSSJ form, could destroy a planet with ease. How can Naruto compete with that?

4 Whis (Dragon Ball) Whis is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Super, created by Akira Toriyama.

Whis should be #1, and Beerus should be #2. The reason is that Beerus proved he was stronger than Goku in the movie. Beerus stated that Whis is his teacher, so that's why Whis should be number one. List Goku, Vegeta, Vegito, Gogeta - name them all - they won't touch Whis. In the movie, Beerus and Goku were the only fighters, while Whis was merely wandering around looking for food. If he had fought, Goku would have likely died. Whis let Beerus do all the work. If King Kai and all the other Kais are afraid of Beerus, it's only because Beerus is the God of Destruction. They aren't scared of Whis because they know Beerus will handle everything. Beerus also said the strongest person he's fought was Whis, not Goku. Goku was the second strongest. That's why Whis is number one, Beerus number two, and Goku number three.

Not even two Super Saiyan God Super Saiyans would be able to kill him. Guess what? He can go back in time. Naruto survives an attack that slices the moon in half without a scratch? Whis can blow up the entire universe and rewind time as if he never did it at all. He is not only stronger than Goku, Vegeta, and Lord Beerus, but he is probably also the fastest, most experienced, and all-around greatest warrior in the universe.

I don't care how strong Naruto is or what he can do. If he can't destroy the entire universe with one blow (which won't matter because Whis can just rewind time), he can't defeat Goku, Vegeta, Beerus, or Whis. Whis is probably even stronger than Superman because of this. The sun gives Superman power? Just blow it up. Even if Superman can fly from one end of the universe to the other, Goku still has instant transmission. Yet, how is it that Goku still couldn't defeat Lord Beerus? If Beerus only used 70% of his strength in that fight, and Whis is stronger than ...more

Whis is one of the strongest characters on this list, and anyone who thinks otherwise is mistaken. Whis dodged every attack by the two "strongest people" on this list. He is stronger than Beerus, the person he serves, and every Dragon Ball character except the Grand Priest, Vados, and Zeno. He easily defeats Saitama, who, if you didn't know, is only solar system level. Whis also takes down the Naruto verse and the One Piece verse. He beats Ichigo and most Bleach characters. The Death Note only works on humans, and even if it did work on other species, he still wouldn't be affected because his name is unknown. He also beats Alucard, the Hunter x Hunter verse, Kenshiro, and so on.

You have to remember that Whis is an angel and cannot die. He also trained Goku and Vegeta and was never hit by them even once. Angels train Gods of Destruction, so Whis trained Beerus. Beerus did not lose against Goku. He ran out of power to destroy the Earth but could still fight Goku and more than likely kill him. Even though we have never seen Whis and Beerus fight each other, the fight would probably go something like a fight between Goku SSGSS Kaioken vs. Piccolo. Obviously, Goku would win and would have probably gotten hit once, if not zero times. So Whis should be stronger than Goku. But hey, that's just an anime theory. But seriously, we forgot about Zeno. He could easily just erase Goku and every other universe ever.

5 Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto) Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Naruto is a monster when it comes to pure strength. In his own respective universe, he is stronger than anyone else. Such as Sasuke, who destroyed a meteor with one hit. Madara, who took down an entire army using only physical attacks. Itachi Uchiha, who could torture someone for three days and three nights in the time of a second. Rock Lee, who was able to hit and then hit again without even touching the ground, in a blur, for many minutes. This means that he could basically float above the ground using speed alone and hit his enemies for several minutes. Gaara, who created a sand shield that took a nuke the size of a city. Minato, Naruto's dad, who was able to teleport to a mark that he had put on someone before they had been killed.

Naruto has feats like falling off a tower face-first and not being scathed in his second strongest form. When he had used up all of his energy, he was still able to blow up a valley and his opponent's arm in it. Naruto was able to sense the ...more

I think Naruto should be number one. No offense to the DBZ fans, but Goku isn't even human, and most of the characters in the DBZ series are way too overpowered. I like the DBZ series. I really do. But the characters just keep getting more and more powerful. Back to Naruto - Naruto is considered one of the most powerful characters in his universe, if not the most powerful. He's really strong even when he doesn't use ninjutsu or his powers. I know he can't blow up planets, but he is human and therefore has flaws.

In my opinion, most of the people in the top 10 of this list are either from DBZ or humans with powers that make them strong. Naruto actually worked for his power and very rarely uses Kurama's power unless he needs to. Besides, he survived an attack that could slice the moon in half without a single scratch! I don't care what anyone says. This is MY opinion. Naruto will always be one of the strongest characters in my eyes.

Naruto is super strong. He has all of the tailed beasts' chakra within him, tamed Kurama, and became his comrade. He saved the world from complete destruction and disaster. He never gives up, no matter what. He defeated Madara and Kaguya, the two most powerful people in the world, along with Black Zetsu and the Ten Tails.

In short, he's the savior of this world. Naruto is kind and careful, but also stubborn and sometimes a bit dumb. However, he understood one of the darkest people in the world's feelings: Uchiha Sasuke. Naruto endured pain and hatred his entire life. His past is horrifying. His parents died protecting him from the Nine Tails, which was later sealed inside of him. Even after finding out about this, he continued to live his life and never gave up. He also never went back on his word. I hope you believe it.

Funny how everyone's asking, How is Naruto second? Why wouldn't he be second? When Naruto was born, both his parents died. He had no friends, and everyone either hated him or was scared of him. Growing up wasn't easy for Naruto. He was pretty much a failure and a nuisance.

As he grew up, he changed a lot of bad people and turned them good just using his words. He even turned his best friend, who seemed impossible to redeem, into a good person. No one believed in him. Naruto started out as a useless kid and ended up becoming the greatest and strongest person in the entire Naruto anime. And don't forget, he became Hokage! Naruto is truly a beast. Dattebayo (believe it), haha!

6 Beerus (Dragon Ball) Beerus is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama. He made his first appearance in the 2013 feature film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

While I think the day will come when Goku may surpass Beerus and Whis, he hasn't done so yet. Never mind the fact that Beerus can blow up a planet just by tapping his finger. If you watch the last Dragon Ball movie, he fights Goku in Super Saiyan God form. Even after they finish fighting, Whis talks to him about how he hasn't had to use that much of his power in a long time. That level of power is not even more than half of his true potential. We haven't seen the full extent of Beerus' powers ourselves, and yet every other character on the show is scared of him! I love Goku. He and Vegeta are my favorite characters by far. But if we're talking about the strongest anime character, Beerus and Whis should be first and second.

Beerus is stronger than God Goku and God Vegeta. In the movie, Whis said that if Goku and Vegeta team up, they might have a chance at beating him - only a chance. He's the second strongest in Universe 7 in DBZ, right under Whis. Beerus is incredibly powerful. He can destroy entire galaxies if he wanted to.

Bills is stronger than Goku. He almost destroyed the whole universe just by clashing with Goku. Vegeta was beaten by Bills easily. Naruto can't even compete with Bills. Goku was also defeated by Bills.

Honestly, for all the DBZ fans, Bills is a canon character. Akira himself wrote the storyline and everything for Battle of the Gods. This is a character who flicked Super Saiyan 3 and shut him down with ease.

7 Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)

Luffy is, for one, a powerful character capable of destroying rocks with a punch. He also has Haki, which allows him to harden his body for defense and use Observation Haki to dodge attacks. Even if he can't dodge an attack, his body is still made out of rubber. So, unless someone can bypass this trait, they cannot hurt him.

Additionally, Luffy has various gears that make him faster, more durable, and stronger. He also has a unique ability to improvise attacks that work against his enemy. Because of this, I don't think Goku could ever be serious with him. Likewise, Saitama would probably also become serious until Luffy changes his demeanor.

The only reason Naruto is in 2nd place is because he is a finished character, like Goku. Bleach will probably end with the Quincy vs. Shinigami saga. One Piece is about 2/3 done, meaning Luffy can still evolve. I'm guessing no one has yet seen Gear 4th.

Who cares if Naruto cut down a tree or Ichigo cut a mountain? The same could be said for Luffy. He cut down a beanstalk. The point is, Luffy is ever-evolving, unlike finished characters like Goku and Naruto. There should be separate top 10 lists for finished characters and non-finished characters.

Though Monkey D. Luffy may not currently be the strongest anime character, he definitely will be in the future. Anything he sets his mind to, he WILL do. For example, he has beaten the majority of powerful enemies he has challenged so far and will obtain the One Piece in the future.

Furthermore, Luffy has eaten the Gomu Gomu no Mi, a Devil Fruit that allows him to stretch. This ability fits his bubbly and innocent personality well. A more complex fruit may not have suited him as well.

Finally, Luffy possesses Conqueror's Haki, which explains why he is able to gather so many allies, even those who used to be his enemies. He naturally draws people towards him, gaining powerful allies as he and the rest of his crew members sail through the Grand Line towards Raftel and the One Piece.

Assuming it's only one character per anime, I would say Luffy is the second strongest, with Goku, of course, being the first.

1. Luffy has one of the highest levels of endurance. He withstands a lot: poison, near-death beatings, fighting against over 1,000 strong warriors of the Big Mom crew, and more. He also survived one of the most deadly prisons in anime.

2. Luffy is incredibly creative with his abilities. By the end of the series, he will likely be on Goku's level, if not higher. He has the ability to stretch any body part to great lengths. While you might think his powers are limited to stretching, Luffy proves there's much more to it. He has many forms, like his gears, Water Luffy, Nightmare Luffy, and what I'll call Instinct Luffy (I'm not sure of the official name), among others. Gear 5th, in particular, has definitely made eyes widen.

3. Luffy has faced much stronger characters

8 Madara Uchiha (Naruto) Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, a conflict which ended in Madara's death.

Madara should obviously be at the top. Not only does he have extraordinary powers, but he also cheated death easily. Even in the latest episodes (episode 393 or higher), he defeats all the tailed beasts by simply looking at them and uttering a few words. As a living person, he is even more unbeatable and far stronger. The fact that he is single-handedly dominating a war is enough. Additionally, he can summon meteors that can take out a city and wipe out two mountains by just unsheathing a single sword.

Madara's brutal philosophy on manipulating people is awe-inspiring. He molds Obito, who was the nicest kid growing up, known for helping the elderly and such. Madara states that it's easiest to control those types of people because once they witness the horrors of the world, they immediately fall into darkness. And if they don't fall, Madara will simply create the darkness in their hearts for them. He is truly evil, merciless, and unstoppable. He only died because God's son killed him. Otherwise, he would have ruled the world.

The list should focus on the strongest lead characters because Madara is literally stronger than Naruto and is immortal. Madara would be the best choice here, as he can even put up a fight with Goku. Alternatively, they should create a list of antagonistic characters. The list is inconsistent. For instance, Aizen is not included. And surprisingly, Luffy is now considered stronger than Ichigo. The list should be organized as follows: 1) Goku, 2) Naruto, 3) Ichigo, 4) Luffy = Natsu, considering lead characters.

Madara is unstoppable and unbeatable. He was behind Rin's death and orchestrated actions with the Mist Ninja. He controlled Kurama (Nine Tails), survived his battle with Hashirama, awakened the Rinnegan, and possesses the most powerful Mangekyou Sharingan along with the most powerful Susano'o. Madara can take on every person on this chart and defeat them, even without the assistance of Black Zetsu and Obito. I have a love-hate relationship with Madara. He's simply unbeatable, no matter what. We all know that.

9 Vados (Dragon Ball) Vados is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

She's stronger than Whis and is the daughter of the Grand Priest. Lastly, she somehow gets over living with Champa.

She's currently the most powerful being in the entire DBverse, though Goku is still my favorite.

She's the sexiest, most powerful girl in the entire existence of anime.

She is the sister of Whis, and Akira said that she is stronger than Whis.

10 Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach) Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

Ichigo can travel slightly faster than the speed of light, a feat that is nearly impossible for any other anime character to accomplish. If he uses this speed advantage against Naruto, circling him over and over like he did with Byakuya in the "Save Rukia" arc, he would likely be stronger than Naruto. It's worth mentioning that this was when Ichigo was arguably at his weakest in terms of Soul Reaper abilities. He has massively improved his abilities both as a Soul Reaper and a Visored since then. So, it's not hard to believe that he could outperform both Naruto and Luffy.

Despite all this power, I would say that Ichigo can't defeat Goku or Vegeta. They can travel many times faster than the speed of light, while Ichigo can only travel slightly faster. Moreover, the difference in the massive amounts of Ki in Goku and Vegeta compared to Ichigo's energy and stamina is too great. As much as I love Bleach, I can't see Ichigo winning against either of them. This is why Ichigo must be ...more

Ichigo deserves to be at least in the top three. Captains in the series are represented as gods, and the head captain is like the god of gods. Even at Ichigo's weakest point as a Soul Reaper, he was on par with the captains. By the time he fights Aizen, he transcends all other beings. He blocks a swing of a sword and destroys a mountain multiple times.

In the movie, Hell Verse, someone angers and teases Ichigo enough to flip his mad switch, which leads him to accidentally destroy the gates of Hell without control. I haven't read the manga, but I've heard he gets considerably stronger after discovering his Quincy powers. Honestly, ranking him tenth doesn't do him justice. I haven't even mentioned a quarter of the Bleach universe - Ichigo is simply worth a higher ranking.

When it comes to the Big Three - Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece - they all operate on different playing fields. Naruto lives in a world of superhumans, and his greatest fight was against a practically omnipresent god who could tear through reality itself. However, he had help. Luffy has faced beings that have called themselves gods and won, but their power pales in comparison to even the captains of Bleach.

Let's put it this way: by the end of the Winter War, Aizen was nearly immortal, reaching omnipresent levels of power, and Ichigo was able to stop him with one swing of his sword. Yes, that strike nearly killed him and drained his power to the point where he couldn't even see spirits for years, but still, it was one strike! In Naruto, ninjas move at speeds where all you see is a blur. In Bleach, some characters don't even blur - they just disappear. They can also fly.

Ichigo could defeat Goku so fast. I don't care if Goku is the fastest in his universe. If he met Ichigo, he would be killed either by his Getsuga or his fast attacks. They are similar in that neither cares if you are a million times stronger. They will defeat you. Ichigo exists on a spiritual plane of reality, while Goku is on the physical plane, so Goku would have to be dead to fight him effectively. Additionally, Goku has died multiple times, whereas Ichigo has technically died only once, and that death gave him his main power. Ichigo is a Quincy, a Shinigami, a Hollow, and a human. He can use many techniques without even knowing it. In this matchup, Ichigo would see Goku as one of his slowest opponents ever.

The Contenders
11 Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail) Natsu Dragneel is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild.Natsu is carefree and reckless in nature, and, despite his consistent brawls with the other members of Fairy Tail, he is a fiercely loyal and protective friend. He is willing to go down fighting for his friends, regardless of how futile it might seem. Natsu has a straightforward mind, and often tackles issues with a "hands on" approach. His solution to problems often involve violence. Even when disrespected or faced with obvious hostility, Natsu rarely ever reciprocates the feelings, and often forgoes grudge-holding.

Many people underestimate Natsu because he is in Fairy Tail, and the anime isn't the best out there. However, as Rogue stated before, Natsu's power knows no bounds. Erza also mentioned that he gets stronger depending on the opponent's strength. Essentially, he is a character created from a book that has limitless power. He defeated an immortal man whom even Acnologia couldn't kill. Zeref became a god of time and space, yet base Natsu defeated him. The interesting part is that we haven't even seen him at his strongest, and we probably won't, due to him not transforming into E.N.D. This is unfortunate. While Fairy Tail has its share of inconsistencies and plot armor, that doesn't change the fact that Natsu has incredible power.

People here are commenting that Natsu can beat a Wizard Saint and that he gains power from friendship. It's important to note that almost every single anime character has similar traits. So what if he can breathe a bit of fire and defeat some powerful people? This is nothing compared to the battles and power that characters like Naruto or Goku possess.

They are characters powerful enough to defeat someone like Natsu just by looking at him. They could take down Gildarts without batting an eye. I'm not saying this to demean Natsu. I'm a huge Fairy Tail fan. But I'm just stating what I've observed from what these characters can do.

Natsu definitely has as much, or more, willpower and potential strength as the other characters ranked above him on this list. What's exceptional about his strength is how he behaves when faced with opponents who are genuinely stronger than him. Main anime characters aren't always the absolute strongest in their worlds. Yet, Natsu never gives up. He keeps fighting and remains true to himself.

That alone makes anyone truly strong. As far as I know, Natsu will refuse to give up the battle and will defeat his opponent, something he has done many times. He refuses to be anything less than strong and finds the power to win because he has that much potential and strength. He's even willing to risk his life in the process and still manages to win in the end.

And let's not forget, he was practically raised and trained by a dragon!

Natsu deserves the top place. He is the strongest anime character alive. According to Mashima and other authors, Natsu Dragneel is the strongest fictional character in the whole universe. Some people argue that Goku is more powerful than him because he can defeat a god. But let's set the record straight: Natsu is a fire dragon slayer, or should I say, the lightning fire dragon slayer. Additionally, he is a demon (E.N.D.), was born in a magical world, and has a dragon inside him.

While Goku can beat a god, is he a god himself? Even though he can defeat a god, he will never be one. Natsu is so strong that he can even defeat God slayers. So, if Goku can beat a god, shouldn't he be considered a God slayer? Natsu is a dragon slayer who beat the God slayer Zancrow by consuming Zancrow's flames. If Natsu can do that, he can also consume Goku's magic. In my opinion, Natsu is strong enough to earn the top spot.

12 Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto) Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

One Rinnegan alone is powerful enough, but Sasuke has two. I understand Naruto, but Sasuke has never really used all of his power. As kids, he could've killed Naruto had he wanted to. I would've put Sasuke at least in 3rd place. I like Vegeta too, but Sasuke could easily kill Vegeta. Trunks as well.

The fact that he is Naruto's rival makes it even more sense. He isn't in the top 5, which is BS. Certain people are out of order. Sasuke killed his own master, took his brother's eyes, and nearly killed the 5 Kage. Think about it: if the Raikage hadn't hit an off-guard Sasuke, Gaara would've died, no doubt. Could Naruto do that? No. Naruto got destroyed by the Raikage until he got Kurama mode. Sasuke didn't even need that extra power to be even with him.

Sasuke fought Danzo, Sakura, Kakashi, and still had the power to fight Naruto. Yet Naruto had already rested in a cage and then got taken to his limit when he fought his so-called equal. Put Sasuke in the top 5, man. How ...more

Okay, the Naruto characters are so mixed up in order. Sasuke and Naruto are equal in strength, but it's okay for Naruto to be higher on the list because he is the main 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, what are you doing down here? I don't count DBZ people, because they're overpowered. And also, it takes 3 people dying, 27 rude comments, and 5 episodes for them to get to full power. It takes Sasuke like 5 seconds.

And for those of you who don't remember, in the Boruto series, it was made clear that Sasuke was the only one who could stand against Naruto. Rinnegan can allow him to teleport (kinda) and control stuff. He also has Asura's chakra, which makes him stronger overall, and the Infinite Mangekyou Sharingan, which is icing on the cake. And he's just strong.

I've already voted on this (I'm the super long one that starts with "OK... Let's be realistic.") so I'm not sure if my vote technically counts. But I am seriously happy Sasuke is in 18th place now. I'm writing on Sep. 10, 2017, and I wrote that super long one on the 9th of September, 2017. I'm impressed by how much of an impact that had on his place.

But anyhoo, ditto what I wrote earlier. I do think that since all the seriously overpowered characters in the series, like Uchiha Madara, Kaguya, and many others I'm not going to name (because it would take too long, I'm too lazy, and the red autocorrect lines SERIOUSLY get on my nerves) are technically all dead, it's pretty hard for them to show how strong they are. :*P

By the way, I didn't know that Ichigo was from a different series. I thought it was the Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew, so sorry :/. But anyways, not including all the DBZ characters on this list (because they are seriously overpowered), and at the end of all the ...more

13 Alucard (Hellsing) Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

Alucard can't be killed unless he wills it to be so. He said himself, "Only a man can kill a monster," and I don't think Saiyans are humans. The only way someone could kill Alucard is if he is really that bored and believes that a specific human is worthy of killing him. So, with him being omnipresent and nowhere at all, there is no way for him to be killed. Anything non-human immediately loses. Perhaps not immediately. It would take Goku blowing up a lot of dimensions and destroying Alucard many times before he would run out of energy enough for Alucard to either eat him or put a bullet in his head. The best candidates are either Naruto or Ichigo, in my opinion. I assume Alucard would find Naruto too childish, though, and tell him he's foolish before killing him. Ichigo, however, has higher chances. He is willing to do what needs to be done to save people and is a little more grown up than Naruto. However, I'm not sure if Ichigo can still be considered "human," so...

Alucard, pre-Schrodinger, killed Sett, the Egyptian god of conflict. He was already virtually immortal and invulnerable, with an ability set that could very easily 1v1 even SSGSS/SSG4 Goku. At post-Schrodinger level - oh sweet Jesus, is there a number zero? - after gaining Schrodinger's power of existing however or wherever he wants, he can quite simply believe he is unable to be harmed by whoever opposes him or just wish himself omnipotent, or stronger than the opponent for that matter. There is no defeating post-Schrodinger Alucard. To quote Integra: "He is nothing like any vampire you have ever seen before, the vampire Alucard!"

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 omnipresent 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, it's 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.

The most overpowered anime character is mainly due to his possession of Schrödinger's abilities. He has omnipotence, which means he is absolutely without limitations. He is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. He's both dead and alive. He was also erased from existence but came back at will, making himself a cartoonishly powered-up kind of god.

14 Light Yagami (Death Note) Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

I read the list from top to bottom and agreed with most of it until I saw Light Yagami. I laughed at first, 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 a list for the strongest anime character, right? I'm not going to argue that strength comes from the mind. No, I'm going to say that Light can simply write a name down, and that person is dead - over and done with.

As much as I respect the other people on this list, they have their drawbacks. For example, some take five episodes to draw up power. Others sacrifice themselves in battle for their friends, which is noble but counterproductive to winning 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 muster enough power in 30 seconds, which is what anime has proven to us. It's kind of silly, really, but I stick with ...more

Most people have been commenting on how most of these other characters would just kill Light before he could write their names down. The one problem I have with this is that Light would never be writing their names right in front of them. No, he would be on the other side of the world, watching the events unfold on his television while sitting in his room eating potato chips. The other person wouldn't even know what's happening. They would just suddenly get a heart attack and die.

Also, very few people even know what the Death Note is and how it works. So even if Light were to write their name in front of them, they would probably just sit around wondering what in the world he is doing. However, I do agree that he wouldn't be able to kill Goku, not because Goku is a Saiyan, but because Goku isn't technically his real name.

Light is capable of beating everyone on this list in about 30 seconds. Light is an average human, but he has the advantage of a Death Note. Some people think that the other characters on this list would kill Light before he gets to write their names down, but none of the other characters know about the Death Note.

In a battle, Light would take out his Death Note and start writing his opponents' names down, while his opponent stands there, wondering what Light is doing. Then, boom - 30 seconds later, they get a heart attack and die, wondering what just happened. Alternatively, he could be secretly watching his opponent on his TV while eating a bag of potato chips. He would write down his opponent's name, and then boom - the opponent suddenly dies. Although I disagree with the statement that Light is the strongest, I definitely agree that Light could easily beat all the other characters on this list.

I wasn't going to vote for Light, but then I thought he should be a bit higher up on the list. First off, I think Light would win in a fight against anyone who fights for justice, like Goku, Luffy, and Naruto. The plain and simple fact is that they are too trusting and only want to see the good in people. A battle with Light is unlike any other battle they've fought before. This isn't a simple one-on-one battle. They would have to uncover who Light really is. Light will literally be another face in the crowd.

Now, against someone who doesn't care about the rules, like a villain? I think Light would most likely lose against characters like Frieza.

15 Vegito (Dragon Ball) Vegito is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

Vegito is stronger than Gogeta. This is stated in the anime. Also, Goku and Vegeta fused to form both Vegito and Gogeta. How in Kami's name is Goku and Vegeta above their fused counterparts? Goku outranks the Omni-King (literally the god of the universe), Vados and Whis (Angels), and Beerus and Champa (Gods of Destruction), as well as various other forms of SSJ Goku himself, even SSG Goku. This makes absolutely no sense. This list is a popularity contest absent of objectivity. As proof, lesser-known animes with overwhelmingly OP characters aren't even listed. This isn't a list of the strongest. It's a vote for high school prom king and queen.

Literal combination of two of the strongest beings in Universe 7, apart from Beerus & Whis.

Smart. Badass. Powerful. Genius in battle. Cool. FTL (Faster Than Light). Makes good jokes. If he can go SSJ God, he will be undeniably the most powerful anime character ever.

He is the fusion of the two most powerful anime characters. He has Goku's strategic mind and Vegeta's cleverness.

16 Frieza (Dragon Ball) Freeza (Pronounced "Frieza" in the Funimation dub) is fictional character in the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama as the primary antagonist of the Freeza Saga. He is a galactic tyrant who governs the Planet Trade Organization and is feared by the universe for his sadistic and brutal nature. He is the series's most personal and significant antagonist, being responsible for many of the series' events, most notably Goku's transformation into a Super Saiyan.

It's ridiculous how many characters Frieza can beat that he's ranked below. In fact, he's probably able to wreck 50% of the characters in the top ten while in the Namek arc and in his base form, all while relaxing in his chair. Luffy? Naruto? Madara? Ichigo? Please. Frieza destroyed a whole planet with the point of a finger. He survived his attack that destroyed a whole planet while he was on it, as well as a Spirit Bomb to the face. Yes, he barely survived, but that's way better than Naruto, who barely survived an attack that just split the moon. And Frieza must be much stronger than that! Of course, there are many characters who can still defeat Frieza, but Naruto characters can sit at the bottom of this list in comparison to Dragon Ball series characters.

Frieza is the strongest and best villain in anime history. I just love how about 15 DBZ characters are in the top 40. They so deserve it because all DBZ characters are the strongest.

Frieza is now stronger in the new movie, DBZ: Revival of F. He has a new evolution: Golden Frieza. He is stronger than even Goku and Vegeta in their SSGSS form, and even stronger than Gogeta SSJ 4 and Vegito SSJ 3. He's stronger than even Superman Prime. He is the strongest being ever, and no one can defeat him aside from the gods of destruction, Beerus and Whis.

Annoying but cool.

17 Sage of the Six Paths (Naruto) Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki (大筒木ハゴロモ, Ōtsutsuki Hagoromo), known to the world at large as the Sage of Six Paths (六道仙人, Rikudō Sennin, English TV: The Sage of the Six Paths), was a legendary god-like figure who founded Ninshū, which led to the creation of the ninja world. He was the son of Princess Kaguya Ōtsutsuki‎‎ and alongside his fraternal twin brother, Hamura, were the first to be born with the same powerful chakra as their mother. Together, he and his brother defeated their mother, who had become the terrifying Ten-Tails, in battle and sealed the powerful beast within himself, thus making Hagoromo the first jinchūriki.

Ninjutsu Transformation

With the power of his Rinnegan, Hagoromo became the first person to master all five elemental nature transformations. He also obtained the power of Yin-Yang release. By using Yang chakra, the essence of physical energy, along with his Yin chakra, the essence of spiritual energy, Hagoromo had the ability to create form from nothingness with a mere thought to bring it to life. Hagoromo created the nine-tailed beasts from the Ten Tails' chakra by using this ability.

Suspecting that Indra or one of his reincarnations would eventually attempt to take Ashura's power for themselves, Hagoromo left behind a tablet detailing his history in an attempt to make them reconsider. Only those who possess the Rinnegan can fully decipher the contents of the tablet, while a reader with other Dojutsu, such as the Sharingan, can still partially interpret the information. However, unknown to him, Black Zetsu, a manifestation of his will through Madara, had altered the contents of his tablet. This allowed him to manipulate Indra's descendants, the Uchiha Clan, through the ages into resurrecting Kaguya and initiating the Infinite Tsukuyomi, a new power.

Fire. Many countless nights passed. Wind. Chakra had been dispersed to those who are unworthy. Earth. The seal that caused such deep humiliation. Water. Has now been shattered. Nay, let the Infinite Moonlight guide you. Use my body and become one again! Awaken, God Almighty, Progenitor of Chakra!

The dude created the Ninja world and was strong enough to dismantle the atomic and chemical bonds of the Ten Tails, splitting it into nine pieces! He should be in 5th place on this list. He is a God! In fact, he and Naruto should be the first two. I did calculations on how Naruto could beat Goku in the Naruto section.

18 Kaguya Otsutsuki (Naruto) Kaguya Otsutsuki is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I was thinking about voting for Saitama, but if Kaguya gets serious, there's no chance for anyone to survive. I mean, she has endless chakra. She can teleport anyone and anything to another dimension without even lifting a finger. I know how overpowered Saitama, Whis, and Goku are, but at this level, it's not even about pure strength or destroying the universe with one hit.

She fully absorbs chakra, so no energy attacks work on her. She can change dimensions or open portals just in front of anyone's face. We actually haven't seen her power when she's really trying hard, since she was just playing around (thanks to Naruto plot armor) and got sealed.

So it actually appears that Kaguya's dimensions were as big as a planet, I assume. Well, it was confirmed in the anime, so there's no denying it. But why did you think Kaguya's dimensions were as large as a universe anyway? Also, are you going to send me the links to the databook? I want to confirm my suspicions.

She is ten times stronger than Naruto and three times stronger than Goku. She can destroy the world, and if she wanted to, she could activate the Endless Tsukuyomi and put him to sleep. She is one with nature and can easily defeat Goku.

Kaguya is the strongest in Naruto and should be considered in all anime rankings. Goku just doesn't get serious quickly, so the Infinite Tsukiyomi would easily be launched, putting him into eternal slumber until he transforms into White Zetsu. She is a Rabbit Goddess, the strongest female character.

19 Edward Newgate (One Piece)

In a show where blowing up a planet isn't practical, he has the ability to destroy Earth. If he were a DBZ character, every time he attacked someone, the planet would be left in a state of nothingness. I wish people would really think before they make these lists. Luffy, who is fifth on this list and that's questionable, felt the need to prove himself to this man. Come on, people.

He held the title of the strongest man in the world, punching so hard that he cracked the air. His punches can make earthquakes and cause tsunamis. The entire world was terrified when he was on the move. With the power he possesses, he could be a planet destroyer. Simply hearing his name was enough to deter even the world government. The world was his for the taking.

Yes, he is strong and badass. However, I'm pretty sure the current Yonko could beat him. Enemies keep getting stronger, so it makes sense for the other Yonko introduced after him to be even stronger. But we'll see.

The dude is an Island Buster. He is the strongest character that has been revealed in One Piece so far. Nobody is on his level.

20 Sosuke Aizen (Bleach) Sosuke Aizen is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

He's a death god, which instantly elevates him above any mortal human. On top of that, he has never been defeated. He's only had his reiatsu temporarily sealed. Not even the other death gods know how to kill him, as he has become immortal after fusing with the Hogyoku. He's an unkillable spirit with more reiatsu than any other captain. Aizen could kill any human or humanoid without them even being able to see him.

Aizen is an all-powerful god who has the ability to control all five senses. Plus, he is immortal. How can anyone expect to fight him and win? Without Kisuke's special seal, Aizen probably would have defeated everyone and made his way to the Soul King. So, in my opinion, Aizen is the strongest.

He is so awesome! He is my favorite anime character. He can easily beat Madara, Naruto, and Sasuke. I bet that if he went up against Ichigo again, he would win.

With the Hogyoku implant and his Kyoka Suigetsu drawn, even Madara Uchiha doesn't stand a chance. Aizen is also immortal and is the only character who couldn't be killed, only sealed. He deserves to be ranked at number two.

21 Zeref Dragneel (Fairy Tail) Zeref Dragneel is a character from the anime/manga series, Fairy Tail, created by Hiro Mashima. He debuted in chapter 200 of the manga, and episode 96 in the anime. In Fairy Tail, Zeref is considered to be the strongest Dark Wizard of all time, who was under the Curse of Contradiction. He is the founder and Emperor of the Alvarez Empire, under the alias of Emperor Spriggan. He is the older brother of Natsu Dragneel and the father of August.

He has the power to kill everything that goes near him, and then some. Even while he sleeps, he sends off waves that destroy even rocks. And it's magic, so Superman can't cheap-shot his way in here. He also has immense magic to defend himself, e.g., force fields, demon/monster summoning, and will-bending. Unless you can survive being dead (lovely paradox for you), then you can't beat him.

How come he is ranked 28 when he can just kill all living things around him with the blink of an eye? He is even far stronger than Natsu, and he is now over 400 years old. He's immortal, guys.

He's immortal, so yeah, he can kill anyone he cares about. He can also release a death stream that kills everyone within a certain distance. How can Goku defeat that?

Hell no! How is this guy not above Natsu? How is he not the strongest character? I mean, he can stop time easily without using magic energy. He can easily defeat the ultimate warriors in legend: Goku and Bills.

22 Jiren (Dragon Ball) Jiren is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

I don't think Jiren is the most powerful, but he's easily one of them. Jiren has easily thrown powerful enemies through the toughest material in the multiverse. He's also on par with UI Omen Goku in his full power mode, who shook an infinite void just by powering up! Jiren was able to match the MUI form, which was even more powerful than UI Omen.

Jiren could destroy the multiverse if he wanted to.

Easily the strongest character in the tournament. He's basically what Goku wanted to be: the guy who got strong all on his own.

He almost outperformed Goku. He's stronger than a god and has Ultra Instinct. Finally, he's the best in his universe. Plus, he's stronger than Belmod.

He should be at about the same level of power as Goku, since Jiren was only barely defeated by Goku's new form.

23 Itachi Uchiha (Naruto) Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Technically, Sasuke was only "stronger" than Itachi because Itachi, the "Weasel of Glory" himself, was already dying of a disease and willed his emotionally troubled brother to land the killing blow on him.

So yeah.

But I can't disagree with the fact that Sasuke, the "Porcupine-Overlord Uchiha," is either as strong as or stronger than Itachi.

Masashi Kishimoto said that Itachi could easily beat Madara Uchiha, so why is Madara considered stronger than Itachi? Additionally, the illusions created by Itachi's Mangekyou Sharingan and his Genjutsu can't be outmatched by Naruto. Naruto can't even transform into Nine Tails before falling. One last thing: Itachi's Susanoo is the most powerful of all the Susanoo because of his shield that can deflect any kind of attack. We know that, and his sword can suppress any form of spiritual energy. So, for me, Itachi should replace Madara.

This guy is way too cool. How is he not first? He's amazing, strong, and good-looking. What else could you want?

Madara is epic, cool, smart, and a genius. He's the coolest anime character in the entire anime world.

24 Omni King (Dragon Ball)

This guy destroyed Future Trunks' timeline and acted as if nothing happened. No character has existed thus far who can defeat this guy. Once he was in a bad mood, so he destroyed six universes in one second and didn't give a damn about it.

Guys, he should be number one. Whis, Goku, or maybe everyone in the DBZ series will just fade by using his powers. Or maybe he'll just use his full power to destroy them. Besides, if he just makes them fade, it will be no fun for him.

Zeno, the Omni-King, is the most powerful anime character of all time. He can, and he did, destroy everything in the future timeline in Dragon Ball Super. No one can best him. It is a fact.

Destroyed six universes because of a bad mood. Beerus trembles at his name, and Whis and Vados report to him. Small in size but is ridiculously stronger than any person in all 12 universes.

25 Champa (Dragon Ball) Champa is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

He's a God of Destruction. He competes with his brother Beerus, which is sometimes pretty funny and adds to his character. Finally, he's a God of Destruction over a universe.

He has to be in the top 5! He's as strong as Beerus and he is insane when he's mad. He would erase his team from existence just because they lost the tournament. Angry and strong, he is definitely the guy that no one would like to face.
