Top 10 Strongest Anime/Manga Characters

The Top Ten
1 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.

Saitama uses an uncountably minuscule amount of his power in his "Serious Punch," his most powerful showing of strength thus far. This punch not only completely negated an energy blast that could shatter a planet the size of Earth or larger (it's shown that the OPMverse Earth has 4 moons orbiting it, and the official character booklet translates Boros's final move as planet-shattering), but it also was able to affect the atmosphere halfway across the globe afterward. In one of the official manga tankobons, Murata drew a sneak peek of a future arc in which Saitama punches a giant hole through the moon, supposedly against a villain called "Metal Emperor."

2 Goku - Dragon Ball Z 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... read more

He may struggle with the big foes that keep on popping up, and he may seem pitiful compared to them, but he'll always step up and train himself. He doesn't give up. DBZ probably has the most formidable enemies because each one makes a long impact, such as Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. They never last for a short while, and it's even more exciting when it takes a lot to defeat them.

Goku can do so much without breaking a sweat. I mean, he can destroy the moon with a simple Ki blast, like Piccolo did in the early episodes of DBZ. Even if somebody does surpass him at some point, he'll beat them no matter how long it takes because his power is limitless.

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

Vegeta should be second because even if he is weaker than Goku, he shot up right to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan without becoming Super Saiyan 3 or Super Saiyan God. He didn't even need Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Goku to join hands and go through the procedure of becoming SSJG. He doesn't depend on others and focuses on achieving new stages of Super Saiyan by himself. That's what makes him so powerful.

Vegeta can destroy galaxies. Naruto can destroy mountains. I've watched both animes. Case closed. Saitama is strong, but he doesn't have the power of a god. Goku vs. Vegeta is debatable, but anyway, Vegeta should be second or first.

4 Whis - Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods Whis is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Super, created by Akira Toriyama.

He trains gods. He should be the strongest since he trains Goku and Vegeta.

Nothing to say. His power proves that he is the number one.

He can beat even Beerus easily, and Beerus defeated SSGSS Goku.

5 Bills - Dragon Ball Z
6 Vados - Dragon Ball Super Vados is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

This list is silly. Vados would obviously one-shot Goku and is stronger than Whis. The likes of Saitama, Naruto, Luffy, and so on would literally die from the shockwaves of her one-shotting Goku.

She should be in the top 3. She can single-handedly beat both Goku and Vegeta at the same time.

7 Giorno Giovanna - JoJo's Bizarre

Everyone on this list: Uses power.
Giorno Giovanna: Nope, resets willpower and actions to 0.

Giorno at full power is one of the most broken characters in all fiction. His power is basically just to win whatever fight he gets into. His ultimate power, nullifying cause and effect - one of the basic fundamentals of existence and reality - makes it so nothing can even virtually harm him. On top of that, his power exists outside time and reality, so it activates instantly.

I'd say 99.9% of fictional characters use cause and effect. Everyone in this list when they use their power is a "cause," but Giorno's power is to eliminate the cause instantly, which means cause and effect can never happen, therefore they cannot do anything. Absolutely broken character.

8 Broly - Dragon Ball Z Broly is the main antagonist in the Broly Triple Threat trilogy and Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. He appears to be the latest of the Legendary Super Saiyans who appear every thousand years. His father was Paragus.
9 Ichigo - Bleach

Well, I think Ichigo should be above Naruto and Saitama. From the manga presently, Ichigo should be able to defeat anybody (except Goku). His reiatsu (spirit energy) is stronger than when he fought Aizen, and even Aizen was not able to feel it then because he was below his level, and Aizen had transcendent reiatsu.

Ichigo has feats like destroying a barrier able to bend space and time with the wave of a hand. Like, who does that? Someone like that can't be sealed, can he? No, I don't think so. I don't see how even Saitama will be able to deal with that because he is all physical and no mystical. He won't even be able to get close to Ichigo to give one punch because, let's face it, guys, he'll vaporize (remember, no iota of reiatsu).

Naruto would be able to handle this a little because of biju mode, but he'll still get whooped. Believe it. Fool ya fool.

10 Future Trunks - Dragon Ball Z
The Contenders
11 Gohan - Dragon Ball Son Gohan is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Gohan is introduced as the first son of the protagonist Goku, and his wife Chi-Chi, in chapter #196 Kakarrot, first published in Weekly Sh┼Źnen Jump magazine on October 24, 1988. Chi-Chi is a strict and protective... read more

Gohan is insanely powerful as shown in his epic fight with Cell. And he was a kid at that time, and you know your breath was whisked away when you watched him. Sure, he gave up on training when peace was restored and powered down when the Majin Buu saga began. When Kibit requested him to show him Super Saiyan, Vegeta commented that he was much stronger during the Cell fight and he hadn't been training.

Gohan must be at least 3rd or 4th because he IS Goku's son. Whenever he's angered, the enemies are in big trouble. Conclusion: Piss him off, you're already dead.

12 Naruto - Naruto Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

In the latest Naruto manga, he can teleport and is faster than the speed of light, given by him being compared to the Yellow Flash (his father). He has surpassed his father in speed. He could easily dominate anyone if he were to use all the way up to Ashura mode, and maybe even without, depending on who he is versing. He is even likely to destroy Goku in a battle since Goku can only teleport where he sees, but if Naruto were to mark him, then he can teleport right beside Goku without Goku actually being able to dodge it. He could also teleport his ninjutsu attacks directly to him, with Goku having zero chance of ever dodging it.

13 Trunks - Dragon Ball Z Trunks is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.
14 Pegasus Seiya - Saint Seiya

Seiya has the ability to adapt to any opponent. He evolves constantly mid-battle. He has faced silver and gold saints, god warriors, specters, and gods and won every single time. But the biggest reason is that he doesn't die. The guy is worse than a zombie.

15 Medaka Kurokami - Medaka Box
16 Monkey D. Luffy - The One Piece Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Oh, why is he not the number one? He should be the number one, right? Oh well, I feel sorry for Naruto fans who voted for him. At first, I was about to vote for him but I remembered the ending and the movie of it. So Luffy is the strongest anime character for me. Sorry, Naruto fans, I hate jackass Naruto.

Luffy never backs out of a fight. Each time he wins, he gets stronger and stronger. He's up to Gear 4. Goku can beat that, but he will get some damage from Luffy because Luffy is powerful.

Luffy is definitely not the most powerful, but he has powers that are very good. I mean, the Gear powers and the Jet powers. If Luffy were to unleash something like "Gear 4", then it's bye-bye, Naruto.

The only thing is water. Any fancy water technique will not work on him because he needs to be fully submerged in salt water. Luffy is good.

17 Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - Gurren Lagann

He literally withstood the power of the Big Bang, whereas Goku in the latest movie almost got killed by a laser gun.

Come on. This guy is millions of light-years tall.

18 Aizen - Bleach

Aw come on guys! Aizen was evil, so what? He had almost killed Ichigo had he not been stopped by Urahara. At least pay some respect to this guy.

He also fought all the Captains with no trouble and majorly wounded most of them.

19 Alucard - Hellsing/Ultimate Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

At the end of the anime of Hellsing Ultimate, you can see/hear he is omnipotent. That means he can't die to anyone ever as long as he knows he is alive. He can't be erased either. A fight between him and someone else who is omnipotent would be an infinite fight that would last forever. Even someone like Zen-oh wouldn't be able to erase Alucard from existence since Alucard has reached the "level" of a God itself.

Alucard cannot die. All he needs to do is believe he is alive, and he will be alive. He has the power to be omniscient. He is everywhere and nowhere, all at the same time.

20 L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

L for life. Somebody give this guy a Death Note.

21 Uchiha Madara - Naruto

How is he only 15 on this list? Are you forgetting when he dropped a meteorite from the sky and defeated the 5 Kages? Not even Naruto and Sasuke teamed up together could defeat him. Kishimoto couldn't even kill him off so he created Kaguya for that, rofl. Everyone on here is biased towards their favorite, but Madara is the strongest.

Since he was brought back from the dead, he has an immortal body. He also has the Rinnegan and Wood Style. Also, he took on a load of the Shinobi Alliance by himself.

Bro, he should be so much higher. A Susanoo that can cut through mountains by unsheathing its sword, and he can literally make it rain meteors. Naruto and Sasuke are both strong, but they have nothing on this Uchiha badass.

22 Itachi Uchiha - Naruto Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Oh yes. He can beat Madara easily. Itachi is the strongest person in the Uchiha clan.

Itachi can beat Madara. Itachi is also the strongest in his clan.

Wait, how is Itachi under someone like Gray?

23 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... read more

Must I remind people in the comments that being handsome isn't really a strength, but Natsu is super strong? Like Erza said, Natsu responds to stronger opponents by becoming stronger himself. If he were pitted against any of the Forbidden Four (the strong ones no one rates above each other or whatever), I think it'd all come to a draw.

All of the characters in anime strive towards strength for their family, but in all honesty, Natsu has demonstrated his means of getting power to do just that. He's come to near death several times, like any other character, but still pushed himself further. I haven't watched Dragon Ball, but based on Naruto, Luffy, and Ichigo, I'd say Natsu would try the hardest, and to me, that's strength.

24 Zen-Oh - Dragon Ball

He should be at the top. He is the most powerful in all the multiverse. He can erase entire universes with a close of a fist.

He's the king of the universes. He can kill Goku by just willing it!

When Zen-Oh goes into "that form," not even Goku can defeat him. He should be top 3.

25 Toriko - Toriko

Not the strongest character of all time, but he can casually destroy the whole Naruto and Bleach universe.
