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 that always wants to get stronger and fight stronger opponents. That would be impossible if he was already the strongest. He is intentionally written as a character that overcomes adversity and reaches new heights. He can't be reaching new heights if he is the strongest. Goku being the strongest person in existence gives him no reason to exist. He is inspirational in that regard, but his life is without meaning if he has no one who can give him a run for his money. If Goku was the strongest character in anime, all of DBS would have been him farming and raising his family.

Goku is definitely stronger. Simon uses the keyword MECH to do everything that he's been able to do.Goku's strength is natural and relies only on himself.Gurren lagan 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 comeback 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 note worthy that unlike Goku, superman has an actual weakness, that has been exploited on more than one occasion.

This is incorrect as it is stated that Goku is the 6th strongest Character in all of DBZ. Whis, Beerus, Champa, Whis's sister and the new guy in the manga are all stronger than Goku and given the writing style of all anime this means that Goku is 6th, I don't know who thinks that Naruto can compete. Naruto is by far my favourite anime but seriously people Grow up and get some perspective. Naruto is one of the weakest main characters in fighting anime. I don't like one piece as much but Luffy in a normal form vs Naruto in normal form. Luufy would win. Goku currently with 0.002% of his power could beat up luffy and Naruto most other characters. Goku is not first. He has a lot of potential but the growing rate of sayains power is quite slow for the training Goku is doing meaning that he will not be the strongest any time soon.

Goku is the is the legendary anime character. A living legend since it is very much alive in the new series. No one comes close to this anime god. He even made me cry when I watched all episodes of z and gt. I think almost every other anime character has some traits of goku. Naruto inspires heavily from goku infact whole dragon ball anime but is nothing more than over talking foolish guy. He talks too much before bringing a change in others character. Whereas goku presence is only enough for the opposite character to change its resolve.

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's the strongest because that's how the writers intended him. The only rule the fighters have for him is that he CANNOT struggle in a fight. It might sound like his only rule is that he HAS to defeat everyone with one punch but we already know that's not true, besides, that would be a terrible idea if they did have that be his only rule.

He is the strongest per 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 want just to be destroyed to crisp in ONE punch. Nothing can hurt him...

He has different weaknesses than any other: How to pay the bills? Why doesn't anybody know him or better said why isn't he famous? And: How to avoid the awful bore to win every fight in just ONE punch?

He usually isn't even serious while fighting and fools around most of the time, while being able to destroy the whole planet with only 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 a semi-Hard Training exercise in just 3 years. If you watch film theorist episode for saitama you will see that if saitama gives it his all he can reset the universe, a feat that currently as of this date zen-oh sama can only do. The closest we saw for 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 currently of me writing this can do. Now if zen-oh sama was put in this list then it's really up to debate whether saitama is the strongest.

Invincible, with a 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 protest those he respects.

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

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

Why is Vegeta 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, 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 (but not defeat) GODS! 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 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 battle of gods, it can be proved that vegeta is stronger than Goku even when he is at his 2nd form against Goku's third form. As Goku was down k.o in 2 blows of beerus and couldn't even land one hit on beerus, he is weaker than vegeta as he did manage to give some impressive blows to lord beerus proving that vegeta in his second state itself will be stronger than Goku's third. Hence proving that vegeta should be first. Also that vegeta was actually the one who gave a sound thrashing in Frieza in battle of gods 2 while Goku was injured before the lazer scene itself. Vegeta barely took minutes to beat golden Frieza clearly proving that he should be second or first as he is a god fellas. A god... way stronger than Naruto for your info..

Vegeta can become MORE than a god. He can increase his lower past that of a god. He could destroy countless worlds. Frieza, in his base form blew up planet Vegeta. He transforms into a huge version of himself. Then, he transforms and becomes stronger. This happens again. In that state he's defeated by a super Saiyan. There's super Saiyan 2, 3 and God that are all weaker than ssgssj. Goku is defeated while in a ssgssj form, which means Golden Frieza, which is 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 a ssgssj. If you think it through, this means Vegeta, in ssgssj form could destroy a planet with ease. How can Naruto fight 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. Bills should be #2. This reason is because bills proved that he was stronger than Goku in the movie. Bills said that whis is his teacher so that's why whis should be number one. Goku vegeta vegito gogeta name em all, they won't tap whis at all. In the movie bills and Goku were the only fighters. Whis was just wandering around looking for food. If he fought, Goku would've possibly died. He let bills do all the work. If king Kai and all the other kai are afraid of bills, the only reason is because bills is the god of destruction. They weren't scared of whis because they know bills is going to do everything. Bills also said the strongest person he's fought was whis. Not Goku. Goku was the second strongest. That is why whis is number one, bills number two, Goku number three.

Not even two ssj 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 like he never did it at all. He is not only stronger than Goku, Vegeta, and Lord Bills, but is probably 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, Bills, or Whis. Whis is probably even stronger than superman because of this. 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 Bills? If Bills only used 70% of his strength in that fight, and Whis is stronger that Bills, (From what Akira has ...more

Whis is one of the strongest characters on this list and anyone who thinks otherwise is stupid. 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 bodies Saitama who if you didn't know is only solar system level. Whis solo's the Naruto verse and the One Piece verse. He beats Ichigo and most Bleach characters. The death Note only works on humans and if it did work on other species he still doesn't know his name so yeah. He beats Alcurd, HunterXhunter Verse, Kenshiro, etc.

You got to remember that Whis is an angle and can not die. He also trained Goku and Vegita and never got hit by them once. And also angles train Gods of Destruction so Whis trained Beerus. Beerus did not lose against Goku he ran out of power to destroy the earth but he 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 more than likely go something like a fight between Goku SSGSS Kioken vs Piccolo, obviously goku would win and would of gotten hit probably once if not 0 times so Whis should be stronger than Goku. But hey that's just a theory 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 then 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 torture summon for 3 days and 3 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. Which means that he could basically float above the ground using speed alone and hit his enemies for several minutes. Garra, 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 somebody before they had been killed. Meaning that after marking summon they would get a permanent tattoo that the marker could teleport to. Wheras Goku and all the DBZ characters can only teleport when concentrating, unlike Naruto. Nagato, who brought a whole city back to life, even after using up almost ...more

I think Naruto should be number 1, 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 even more and more powerful. Back to Naruto, Naruto is considered one, if not, the most powerful character in his Universe. 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. This is only in my opinion, but if you get it through your head that most of the people in the top 10 of this list are either from DBZ or humans that have 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 since 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, he tamed Kurama and became his comerade, 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. Shoot, he's the savior of this world! Aw, Naruto, so kind and careful, also stubborn and kinda dumb at some times, be he understood one of the darkest people in the world's feelings, Uchiha Sasuke. He endured pain and hatred his entire life, his past... Horrifying.. His parents.. Deceased after protecting him from the Nine Tails that was soon sealed inside of him, and with that beast inside of him, even after finding out.. He still continued the life he lived, and never gave up... And never went back on his word... I hope you believed it..

Funny how everyone's saying how is Naruto 2nd? , why wouldn't he be 2nd? When Naruto was born, both his parents died, he had no friends and everyone basically hated him or was scared of him. Growing up wasn't easy for Naruto, he was pretty much a failure and a little pest. As he grew up he changed a lot of bad people and turned them good just using his words. He even turned his bestfriend that was pretty much impossible to turn good, good. No one believed in him. Naruto started out as a useless kid to becoming the greatest and strongest person in the whole Naruto anime, and don't forget he became HOKAGE! Naruto is truly a beast, dattebayo ( believe it ) haha

6 Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)

Luffy is for one a powerful character, capable of destroying rocks with a punch, and he does have haki where he can harden his body to defend and use observation haki to dodge attacks. Even if he can't dodge the attack, his body is still made out of rubber, so unless the someone is able to bypass this, they can not hurt him. Also, Luffy has his gears which can make him faster, more durable, and stronger. Luffy also has an weird ability to improvise attacks to work against his enemy and I don't think Goku could ever be serious with him because of this. Also, Saitama will probably get serious also till luffy makes him.

Only reason Naruto is in 2nd place is because Naruto is a finished character like Goku Bleach will probably end with the Quincy vs Shinigami saga. One Piece is like 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 cutting a mountain the same could be said for Luffy. He cut down a bean stalk. The point is Luffy is ever evolving unlike finished characters like Goku and Naruto. There should be a top 10 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. Any thing he sets his mind to he WILL do, such as how he beat the majority of the powerful enemies that he 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 him. This fits his bubbly and innocent personality well, as a more complex fruit may not have suited him.
Finally, Luffy has the Conqueror's Haki, which explains why he is able to gather so many allies, even ones that 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 its only one per anime I say Luffy is the second strongest, Goku of course being at first.
1. Luffy has one of the strongest endurance, definitely with stands a lot, poison, being beat to death, fight over 1,000 very strong warriors of the big mom crew, even more. He also survived one of the most deadly prisions of anime.
2. Luffy is creative with what he can do, honestly, by the end of the series luffy will definitely be goku level if not higher. Luffy has the ability to stretch any body part any length, pretty far. You would think there's only stretching and nothing more but there is so much more. He has many forms like his gears, water luffy, nightmare luffy, instinct luffy? (I don't know whats it called), and so much more. Luffy definitely has made eyes widened before especially with gear 5th!
3. Luffy has dealt with much more stronger charcters..

7 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 also the fact he cheated death easily and even in the latest episodes (episode 393 or higher) he beats all tailed beasts by literally looking at them and saying a few words. He is even unbeatable and far more stronger as a living person, the fact he is soloing a war is enough, along with being able to summon meteors that can take out a city and wiping out 2 mountains with just unsheathing "one" sword.

His Brutal philosophy on manipulating people! He molds Obito, whose the nicest kid growing up, helping the elderly and stuff. He states it's the easiest to control those types of people because once they see hell in the world, they immediately fall into darkness. And if they don't fall, Madara will simply create the Darkness in their hearts for them. Truly Evil, merciless, and unstoppable. He only died because God's son killed him, otherwise he'd have ruled the world.

It should be list of strongest lead character. Because madras is literally stronger than Naruto and he is immortal. Madara would be best choice here who can even put a fight with Goku. Or they should make a list of negative character. There is so up down in the list. Aizen* is not there. And guess what LUFFY is now stronger than ICHIGO. This list should be like. 1)Goku 2)Naruto 3) ichigo 4)luffy=natsu. In the lead character.

Madara is unstoppable and unbeatable. He was behind Rin's death and the mist ninja, he controlled Kurama (Nine Tails), he lived after the battle with him and Hashirama, he awakened Rinnegan, and he has 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 Black Zetsu and Obito. I hate but also love Madara. He's simply unbeatable, no matter what. We all know that.

8 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.

Whis is stronger than Beerus, which is his actual name. If you'd paid attention to the anime, Whis tells Vegeta he is Beerus' teacher. Also, when the universes get erased, the angels (such as Whis and Vados who is ranked lower for no reason), are left behind. And lastly, Whis told Goku and everybody that in one universe (presumably one of the four omitted from participating in the Tournament of Power) "...there lives a mortal that even a God of Destruction cannot defeat. That God of Destruction happens to be stronger than Beerus-sama." So, Goku and Vegeta shouldn't be above Beerus, Whis, Vados, or Champa for starters. This list is just a list of who has the most fan-boys/girls.

Whilst I think the day will come where Goku may surpass Beerus/Whis. He hasnt done so yet. Never mind the fact 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 and 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 much power, not being more than half of his true power) 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 are talking 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 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 I'm DBZ right under Whis, Beerus is incredibly powerful he can destroy entire galaxies if he wanted too.

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.

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

She's stronger the Whis, daughter of the Grand priest. Last, she somehow gets over living with Champa.

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

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

She is sister of Whis and Akira told 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 near impossible for any other anime character to accomplish. He is going to be stronger than Naruto if he circles him over and over like he did with Byakuya in the "Save Rukia" ark. Not to mention this was when he was arguably at his weakest of his Soul Reaper abilities. He has massively improved his abilities as a Soul Reaper and a Visored since then, so it is not hard to believe that he can trump Naruto and Luffy. Despite all this power, I would say that he cannot defeat Goku or Vegeta because they can travel many, many times faster than the speed of light while Ichigo can only travel slightly faster than light. Not only this, but the difference between the massive amounts of Ki in Goku and Vegeta, and Ichigo's energy and stamina is a massive gap. As much as I love Bleach, I cannot see a way of Ichigo winning against either of them. This is why Ichigo MUST be put fourth, below Vegeta, Goku and Saitama (Weakest ...more

Ichigo deserves to at least be in the top three. Captains are represented as gods, and then the head captain is like the god of gods. At Ichigo's weakest point of being 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 turn his mad switch, which made him ACCIDENTALLY without control destroy the gates of hell. I haven't read the manga, but he gets considerably stronger after finding out his Quincy powers. Honestly, he doesn't deserve tenth. I haven't even mentioned a quarter of the Bleach universe - Ichigo is just worth it.

For the Big Three, Naruto, Bleach and One piece, they are all on different playing fields. Naruto lives in a world of superhumans and is greatest fight was against a practically omnipresent God who could tear through reality itself, but 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 nigh immortal, reaching omnipresent levels of power and ichigo was able to stop him with on swing of his sword. Yes that strike nearly killed him and drained his power to the point here he couldn't even see spirits for years but still, ONE STRIKE! Naruto's ninjas can move at speed where all you see is a blur, in bleach so characters don't even blur, they just disappear. They can also fly.

Ichigo could screw up Goku so fast, I don't care if Goku is the fastest in his universe but if he met ichigo he would be killed by either his getsuga or his fast attacks. They are similar though they both don't care if you are a million times stronger than them they will defeat you. Ichigo is in a spiritual plane of reality and Goku the physical plane so Goku would have to be dead to fight him effectively. How many times has Goku died also technically ichigo has died only once and that death gave him his main power. Ichigo is a Quincy a Shinigame a hollow and a human, how many techniques can he use without knowing it. Oh 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. But as stated before by Rogue, his power knows no bounds and even Erza stated that he gets stronger depending on the opponents strength. He is basically a character created from a book that has limitless power. He defeated an immortal man that even Acnologia could not kill. Zeref became a god of time and space. 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 not transforming into E.N.D. which is unfortunate. Fairy Tail has tons of bull and plot armor but that doesn't change the fact that Natsu has incredible power.

All the people here are commenting things like natsu can beat a wizard saint and oh he can get power from from friendship. Notice how almost every single anime character is like this. So what he can breath a bit of fire and defeat some ''powerful'' people. This is nothing compared to the battles and power that Naruto or Goku has. They are characters that are powerful enough to beat someone like natsu just by looking at him hence they could take down gildarts without batting an eye. I'm just saying what I think, I've seen many anime and I'm a huge fairy tail fan. But I'm just laying the truth down from what I've seen these characters do.

Natsu definitely has more or the same amount of willpower and potential strength as the other characters above him in this list, I can that say that much. Although, really, what's exceptional about his strength in particular, is how he is when he's faced with people who are actually legit stonger than him (because since when were all main anime characters always the absolute strongest in their world? ). He doesn't give up in the slightest, will keep fighting, and just be Natsu. Honestly, that alone can truly make and consider anyone really strong, but as far as I know with Natsu, he'll refuse to give up the battle and beat his opponent, which he has happened to do many times. He'll refuse to not be strong enough, and will practically strengthen himself, find the power to beat them, because he's that potential and strength. And he even almost sacrifices his life in the process, but still wins in the end...

...AND not to mention he was practically raised and trained by a dragon!

Natsu deserve the top place. He is the strongest anime fiction alive. According to Mashima and the other authors confirmed that Natsu Dragneel is the strongest fiction in the whole universe. The other people say that Goku is much more power than him because he can defeat a god. But let's make it straight, Natsu is a fire dragon slayer or should I say the lightning fire dragon slayer plus he is a demon E.N.D and he is born in magic plus there is a dragon inside him, so Goku can beat a God but is he a god? Even though he can beat a God he will never be God. Natsu is so strong and he can even beat the God slayers. So if Goku can beat a God aren't he considering a God slayer? So Natsu is a dragon slayer that beat the God slayer Zancrow by eating Zancrow's flames. So if Natsu can do that Hwe can eat Goku's magic. So in my opinion Natsu is strong enough to be at the top place

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 3rd. I like vegeta too but Sasuke could easily kill vegeta. Trunks as well. And then the fact that he is Naruto's rival makes even more sense. The fact that he isn't top 5 is bs. Certain people are out of order. Sasuke killed his own master, TOOK his brother's eyes and damn near killed the 5 kage. Think about it, if the raikage didn'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 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 top 5 man. How could you even think Naruto ...more

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, whatcha doing down here? I don't count DBZ people, cause 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. And he 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... Lets 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 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. But anyways, they are technically all dead, so 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 (Cause 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 him being omnipresent and nowhere at all there is no way for him to be killed. So anything non human immediately loses. Perhaps not immediately.. It would take Goku blowing up a lot of dimensions and destroying alucard a lot of 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/invulnerable, with an ability set which could very easily 1v1 even SSGSS/SSG4 Goku. At Post-Schrodinger level, oh sweet Jesus, is there a number 0? After gaining Schrodinger's power of existing however/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 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 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.

Most overpowered anime character. This is mainly because after he took possession of Schrodinger's abilities, he has omnipotence, and by that, it means he is absolutely without limitations, everywhere and nowhere at the same time, he's dead and alive, also he was erased from existence, but he came back at will, making himself a cartoonish 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 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 ...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 name right in front of them. No, he would be on the other side of the world watching the events unfold from 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 was having to write their name in front of them they would probably just sit around wondering what in the world he is doing. Although I do agree that he wouldn't be able to kill Goku, not because Goku is Saiyan but because Goku isn't technically his real name.

Light is capable of beating everyone on this list in like 30 seconds. Light is a average human person 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 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 the heck Light is doing. Then BOOM... 30 seconds later they get a heart attack and die, wondering what the heck just happened. Or he would be secretly watching his opponent on his T.V. while eating a bag of potato chips, he would write down his opponents' name. Then BOOM... the opponent suddenly dies. Although I disagree with the statement stating Light is strongest, I definitely agree that Light could easier beat all the other characters on this list.

I wasn't going to vote for Light but than I thought he should be a bit higher up on the list.
First off I think Light would win against a fight with 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. And a battle with Light is unlike any other battle they fought before. This isn't a simple 1-on-1 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 would think Light will most likely lose against characters like Freiza.

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? Also, Goku outranks the Omni-King (literally god of the universe), Vados and Whis (Angels), and Beerus and Champs (Gods of destruction), and 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 overwhelming 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. 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

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 below. In fact, he's probably able to wreck 50% of the characters in the top ten spot in Namik arc while in his base form while relaxing in his chair. Luffy? Naruto? Mandara? Ichigo? Please. Frieza destroyed a whole planet with a 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 barley survived an attack that just split the moon. And Frezia must be much stronger than that! Of course there are many characters that can still own 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 cause all dbz characters are the strongest

Frieza is now stronger now in the new movie dbz revival of f, he has a new evolution which golden Frieza, it is
stronger than even Goku and vegetal in their ssgss form and even gogeta ssj 4 and vegito ssj 3. He is stronger than even superman prime He is the strongest being ever and no one can defeat him aside from the god 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 Finnegan. Hagoromo became the first person to master all five elemental nature transformations. He also obtained the power of the yin yang realease. 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 though 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 reincarnation 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 prossess the Rinnegan can fully decipher the constants of the tablet while a reader with other Dojutsu such as the Sharingan call still partially interpret the information. However unknown to him Black Zetsu a manifestation of his Madara will had altered the constants of his tablet so he could manipulate Indra's descendants the Uchiha Clan through the age into resurrecting Kaguya and initiating the Infinite Tsukuyomi anew power.

Hagoromo was a tall and pale skinned man who had deep wrinkles in his elderly age. He had spiky shoulder length pale red hair with a chin length braid hanging in front of his left ear. He also sported a goatee which was short in his younger years and later tapered down to his waist in his old age. Hagoromo had a pair of horn like protrusions extending from either side of his forehead Rinnegan eye and no eyebrows. He also had a Red Finnegan Marking in the centre of his forhead. Hagoromo wore a white full length kimono with pattern of six black magatama around a high collar beneath which he wore a necklace which was also made up of six black magatama. On the back of his kimono was larger black Rinnegan Marking Marking with a pattern of nine magatama arranged in three rows of three beneath it.

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 the Infinite Moon light guide you Use my body and become one again! Awaken God Almighty! Progenitor of Chakra!

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 get serious there's no chance for anyone to survive. I mean she has endless chakra, she can teleport anyone and anything to another dimension and don't have to even move a finger. Yeah, I know how overpowered are Saitama, Whis and Goku but at this level it's not even about pure strength, destroying universe with one hit or something. She fully absorbs chakra so no energy attacks are working 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 really tries hard, since she was just playing around (Naruto plot armor) and got sealed.

So it actually appears kaguaya's dimension were as big as a planet I assume, well it was confirmed in the anime so there is no denying to it. But why did you think kaguya's dimension where as large as a universe anyway? Besides are you going to send me the links of 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 she could turn on the endless tsukuyomi and put him to sleep. She is one with nature and can just beat up Goku like that

Kaguya is strongest in Naruto and should be in all animes.
Goku just doesn't get serious quickly so easily the infinite tsukiyomi would be launched and he would have eternal slumber until he molds 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 was 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 list. Luffy, who is fifth on this list and that's questionable, felt the need to prove himself to this man. Like, come on people.

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

Yes he is so strong and badass. However I'm pretty sure the current yonko could beat him. Enemies keep getting stronger so it makes sense to have the other yonko that were introduced after him 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, only had his reiatsu temporarily sealed. Not even the other death gods know how to kill him since he's become immortal after fusing with the hogyoku. An unkillable spirit with more reiatsu than any other captain. Aizen could kill any human or humanoid without them ever being able to see him.

Aizen is an all powerful god who has the ability to control all 5 senses plus he is immortal how can anyone expect to fight him and win? With out kisuke special seal Aizen would have probably defeated and made his way to the soul king so if you ask me Aizen is the strongest

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

With the Hougyoku implant, and his Kyoka Suigetsu drawn out, even Madara Uchiha can't stand a chance and he is also immortal and only character who couldn't been killed just sealed. He deserves 2.

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 murder 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: forcefields, demon/monster summoning and will-bending. Unless you can survive being dead (lovely paradox for ya) then you can't beat him.

How come he is 28 when he can just kill all living things around him with a blink of an eye. He is even far stronger than Natsu and plus he is now 400+ years of age, he is immortal guys.

He's immortal, so yeah, and he can kill anyone he cares about, and release a death stream that kills everyone within a 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 defeated 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.

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

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! And 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.

He almost out bested Goku, He's stronger then a God, he has Ultra Instinct. Finally, He's the best in his universe. Plus he's stronger then Belmod.

Should be at about the same level of power with 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 just because the Weasel of Glory himself was already dying of a disease and he willed his idiot emo brother to land the killing blow on him.

So yeah.

But I can't disagree against the fact that Porcupine-Overlord Uchiha is either stronger or equally strong as he is.

Masashi Kishimoto said that Itachi could easily beat Madara Uchiha so why is Madara stronger than Itachi? Plus the illusion of Itachi and mangekyou sharingan and Genjutsu of his cannot be outmatch by Naruto.. Naruto isn't even turning into Nine tails and he is dead..One last thing his Susanoo is the powerful of all Susanoo's because of his Shield that can deflect all kinds of attack we know that and the sword that can supress all kinds of things no matter how strong the spirtual thing can be.. So for me Itachi should replace Madara

This guy is WAY too cool, how is he HERE?! He should be first! Amazing, strong, AND good looking! What else can you want?!

Epicness, cool, smart, genius, the coolest anime character in entire anime world.

24 Omni King (Dragon Ball)

This guy destroyed future trunks time line and acted as if nothing happened. No character existed by far who can defeat this guy. Once he was in bad mood so he destroyed 6 universe with 1 second and didn't give a damn about it.

Guys! he should be number one...Whis, Goku or Maybe everyone in DBZ Series will just fade by using his powers, or Maybe just use his full power to destroy him, and besides if he just make 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 time line in dragon ball super. Know one can best him it is a fact

Destroyed 6 universes because of 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 the 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 sometimes is pretty funny, and adds to his character. Finally, He's a God Of destruction over a universe.

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