Most Powerful Video Game Characters

Alright guys this list is based on how much each character has endured and survived, as well as their strengths and who would win in a 1v1 combat.

The Top Ten

1 Asura

By the end of the game, he was flying through space, destroying stars thrown at him by a true god. When he engaged said god in a battle, at first, the god could block his full punch with a single finger. By the end of the fight, Asura took a full power hit from the creator of his universe with his forehead, sending tremors through the gods body and knocking him back. That should clearly show that Asura is way past the whole star destroying level of power...


Dude killed a god he is bigger than earth in destructor form

Asura is the strongest game character no doubt and no need to be argue

2 Kirby Kirby Kirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. His first game was created in 1992, and the pink puffball has made his way into the hearts of fans of all ages.

Kirby can survive entering the atmosphere of a planet, he can survive the vacuum of space and blasts strong enough to destroy mountains. His warp star can go faster than light, Fighter Kirby is strong enough to destroy planets and Jet Kirby can go at Mach 5 and His stomach as another plane of existence. He does not just copy his opponents powers, he enhances them. Asura and Kratos may be very powerful but even they cannot stop the everlasting hunger of the pink creampuff that is Kirby.

1. so many characters could EASILY survive those forces you just mentioned. characters on this list have survived black holes and can breathe in space. the vacuum of space is nothing compared to a black hole. Entering the atmosphere of a planet? Anyone on this list could survive that. Explosions that could wipe out mountains? Big whoop. more then a handful of the characters on this list have survived supernovas or explosions large enough to destroy planets! Kirby's durability is nothing compared to a lot of people on this list

Honestly kirby is powerful indeed, but #2?!, ? Seems pretty biased to me. As proven (ssbb) kirby doesn't automatically destroy everything he sucks up, as players of super smash can resist and break out. He can only automatically consume extremely small and weak opponents like waddle doo or waddle dee etc. Hell he can't even absorb mini bosses like bugsy or that hammer guy ( etc, ) and its not just because of size or weight: kirby can't suck up meta knight either. Why? Because meta knight is powerful enough to resist. Just about everyone on this list is as powerful or stronger then meta knight so ( although possible) it would be quite difficult to absorb anyone on this list. Aside from that, kirby most likely wouldn't be able to copy anyone's ability as to do so he must swallow them. Characters with high power levels would break free before so ( like Goku, sonic, dante, shadow etc: just to name a few. Many more who could break free as well. ) with those two primary abilities of kirby ...more

The video games are inaccurate watch the show and maybe we will talk

Kirby is the most powerful character in fiction or reality. He is anyone he fights +1. If he fought Asura, he would have all of Asura's powers +1. In the anime he devoured all of reality/universe by accident. In the games he never really dies, just gets mentally exhausted and goes to sleep. With his warpstar Kirby can travel at many thousands of times faster than light. Keep in mind, at 200 Years Old Kirby is basically in a pre-fetal stage of existence. Kirby is basically a pre-fetal stage "One Above All" or "Abrahamic God". Consider that inside Kirby exists another realm of reality, a place ripe for the birth of another universe for Kirby to be the Prime Creator of one.

Ugh. someone get this guy a kirby game, then he might actually know what he's talking about

Kirby. Punched. A. Planet. In. Half. With one punch, base form. He is physically strong enough to shatter every bone in your body, and rupture severalorgans with the force of his punch.

3 Kratos (God of War)

NO WAY MAN! Death easily beat this out because.. Well.. He is death. He got stabbed in the chest with a massive sword, thought to be the most powerful sword in the entire Darksiders universe and he did not even bleed or move or react to the stab he just received. Also he is invulnerable when in reaper form and with possessed armor and weapons he would definitely beat out. He is way more faster agile and powerful than Kratos.

For those who do not know Who Death is search Death Darksiders 2

So Kirby is above Kratos... Kratos killed at least a dozen GODS, and TITANS, who let me remind your are the most powerful in the Universe, and crawled out of hell, not once, not twice, but three times, and bashed Hades head in. If Kratos got "sucked up" by Kirby, he would literally rip his way out him, then laugh and murder his family too.

This guy has the power of hope. Kirby or Asura, both will die if they touch the Flame of Olympus, no one can touch it. But the flame's power pales infornt of the power in its core, which is the evil powers of Pandora's box. But the box has the another good power, the power of hope, which makes its owner invincible. And no matter a whole sun is thrown at him, he wont get harmed, as gods are much powerful than stars and the power of hope is even stronger the the power which can kill GODS. The only way to kill kratos in that time is that if he kills himself.

He is a god

4 Goku (Dragon Ball Z Series) Goku (Dragon Ball Z Series) Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

Goku managed to absorb the power of a sayian god, meaning that he could possibly reach that level again, and hold it for as long as needed. He also tied against a GOD OF DESTRUCTION, all because he didn't want to go to full power, and just have fun with it. If he had trained and taken it seriously, he would have won. He has almost limitless power, and has toppled some of the most powerful characters in the universe. He is not only humble and kind hearted, but also super powered.

Goku came from an anime. Shut up and vote him at top 10 powerful anime characters.

Goku ends with more training for himself. So nobody knows if how strong he is, only the assumption that Goku will become a LOT stronger than he was.

OK just think about it... Goku has fought en the "God of Distruction" which is one of the coolest fights I have seen in anime history. Not only that when he was a kid (and I am not exaggerating) he was probably the most powerful being on the planet. Like if he knew how to go super saying...That would probably give him a HUGE advantage over Master Roshi when they were fighting in the tournament. He almost has unlimited power or (ki as I should say). Goku is could be the most nicest man in the anime universe. Whenever he jokes about somehting I always smile because of how stupid he is sometimes (and I mean stupid in a good way). So yea Goku should be at least above Kirby. And this is a little off topic but Saitama is the most strongest anime character. But still Goku is my favorite anime character so u know VOTE FOR GOKU.

5 Superman (Injustice: Gods Among Us) Superman (Injustice: Gods Among Us) Superman is a comic character. And probably the first powerful superhero in the fictional world.The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, high school students living in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1933. It was published by DC comics.The first animated superhero movie was superman.The more.

Superman can't die without kryptonite. So he would be the top unless you are talking about injustice, which is what we are talking about. He could wreck Goku in a battle. He can practically murder the apprentice. Superman can murder Kirby with just his fist, trust me, don't fight Superman. If you do, I think someone is going to have some fractured ribs and maybe a couple of limbs lost. Asura can not beat Superman even if Asura tried. Send Asura to injustice, he wouldn't beat a level, his moves would be cuddle, tickle, and penis kiss. Also Asura's game would be easier with Superman, because of Frost Breath, Laser Eyes, Speed, Strength, and he can take blows like a man. Send an army of Supermans vs an galaxy of Asuras, Superman would win. Also Superman looks ten times more epic then Asura.

I think superman should be at least #4 goku has been beaten by superman twice so goku and superman should switch

Superman and Goku had a fight and Superman won. If someone can beat Goku in a fight, they deserve to be on top. - TheGrammarPolice

Too many idiots here that think Death battle is word of God.

6 Dante (Devil May Cry) Dante (Devil May Cry)

Dante can freeze time, survive being slashed in half, block a punch from a demon the size of the Empire State Building, defeat devil kings that literally control all reality, and rip the soul out of an enemy without harming the body at all, which also allows him to destroy things that can't die, that can regenerate from a pool of blood. This guy isn't an omnipotent himself, but he beats them all the time.

He was thrown and tossed around to the point he got a sword stabbed through his chest. What did he do, well just what Dante would do, take it out of his chest and walk away. This man is almost invincible and has an insane amount of power

He should be higher then Kratos. The only reason people actually see him as higher then dante is because he kills his fours more brutally then him. Dante is about style. He rarely uses his true power against any foe because he don't see it as necessary. Also he can master every weapon in a matter of seconds and haves the best accuracy and precision you will ever see. He can fly in his devil trigger. Survive just about anything. If he fits kratos, kratos would probably make dante mad very fast considering how brutal he is them dante would mess him up.

To understand Dante's prowess one must play Dmc his power accuracy style and never to give up attitude, He's the BEST.

7 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog

He has killed a god in his base form. He has battles with the ultimate life form every few games. He can go infinitely fast as the official description for his shoes are friction-resistant, SAME AS THE FLASH'S SUIT. He can cut through almost everything with his spin blades. And with his Super form, he can destroy entire space fleets in seconds. His speed is immeasurable as well. Hyper Sonic is literally a god. He can destroy everything on screen at his will. While he is super and hyper, he can't be harmed. The only people who he can't beat is Asura and Kirby, as Asura just can't be compared to. And while Sonic can run infinitely fast, nothing is faster than light, and Kirby sucks (heh) with the power of a Black Hole (but maybe by some bend of physics, Sonic can run past that speed), which light can't even escape. He can kill Superman because with his super form and hyper form counts as magic and superman is weak to that, and they run at the same speed (they have no limits to speed). ...more

I think sonic should be on the top 10 most powerful video games characters because in his super form, sonic is invincible and the two only things that hurt the super sonic are Dark Gaia and solaris, and they are both GODS), super sonic defeat THREE gods in all (chaos the god of destruction, solaris the god of sun and Dark Gaia the god of darkness), sonic also learn to return powerful energy attacks from powerful enemies (go see the final battle in sonic in the secret ring, the final battle in sonic générations, and the final battle in sonic heroes), sonic have also many super forms, GAME THEORY said sonic doesn't go over speed of sound, bull, in sonic adventure 2, Gerald Robotnick said the ARK will crash on the earth in about 27 minutes (1620 seconds), the ARK was in the same distance from earth that the moon (384 400 000 meters) so that mean the speed of the ARK was about 237 283 meters/second (the speed of sound is about 340 meters/second) and sonic and shadow take a battle with ...more

Sonic is easily one of the most powerful video game characters with his super speed and various techniques at his disposal like the spindash and the homing attack but when he transforms into super sonic he has the ability to fight omnipotent being like solaris who was able to control and manipulate time and if anyone says that he cannot destroy the universe because he needed the help of shadow and silver to beat solaris that is because solaris existed in all timelines and killing him in only one would do nothing besides being able to destroy one third of solaris would mean that he has one third of universal power and last time I checked one third of everything is still everything

Sonic can easily beat Mario, Kirby, Goku, a lot of people on this list.

8 Sephiroth (Final Fantasy)

Sephiroth did too much for me to explain, but I can tell you he is the main cause of the saddest video game death in history and was the most villanous villain other than Makarov.

Hey was powerful enough to summon meteor, he can cut building in half witha swing of his sword and he can summon a galaxy destroying super nova

Sepheroth is POWERFUL

Just a note. Almost ALL instances of Sephiroth in FF7 isn't Sephiroth. It's Jenova, making Jenova as powerful as everybody thinks. Parts of the enitities' body are enough to destroy planets. so, not Sephiroth, Jenova...

9 Apprentice (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed)

You can basically have complete control over the force when playing as this hardcore sith known as the Apprentice. He uses the force to thrash and mess with everyone, and if he gets tired of it, he still as the powerful lightsaber.

Seriously, he's under sonic? This guy almost killed earth Vader TWICe, and the emperor, his clone was more powerful than Vader and he can literally control people with his mind. Sonic can run at the speed of light. I mean that's cool and all, but the apprentice can simply mind control him, and make him lick a light saber.

He almost killed Vader and he blew up a huge portion of the death star. Also he can control people

Force is power ENOUGH SAID

10 Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.

Shadow is AWESOME! My favorite Sonic character of ALL TIME! And the Halloween thing is pretty funny lol!

Shadow is awesome and doesn't take anything from anyone. he could destroy a lot of people on this list.

Yay I was looking for any Sonic character on this. Plus, I'm probably gonna be shadow for Halloween. Carry around a fake gun, shoot anyone dressed like sonic, tails, knuckles, it's
Amy lol

WHAT?! NUMBER 10 SHADOW CAN WIPE OUT THE UNIVERSE.( okay I exagerated there, but you know what no mean.)

The Newcomers

? Ultimecia (Final Fantasy VIII) Ultimecia (Final Fantasy VIII)
? Zidane Tribal (Final Fantasy IX) Zidane Tribal (Final Fantasy IX)

The Contenders

11 Master Chief (Halo) Master Chief (Halo) MCPON John-117, or "Master Chief", is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Halo fictional universe created by Bungie.

To be honest, Master Chief should be in the top 10, the amount of crap he's been through is astounding, not only that, Look at what his suit can do, the amount of stuff it does is ridiculous. Tons of courage, never backs away from a fight, always wins the fight. Tons of knowledge on Weapons, and Vehicles. Cortana, the most awesome A. I by his side.
Put Master Chief on an unknown planet to conquer it by any means necessary he and Cortana will get the job done.
Nothing and I repeat, nothing stands in his way. No, not even a bloody Scarab.

Come on, really! Put Master Chief in the top 5, or at LEAST in the top 10. He would CRUSH more than half other the other characters, including those above him. In a fight, he would dominate the other characters.

He survived all halos and has regenerating armor. He is the most badass character in gaming whom is like a biotic, super marine-spartan.

Best guy ever

12 Oni (Super Street Fighter 4 AE)

He is the destroyer of heaven.

The father of all demons

He tied with Asura... Enough said

He can destroy your soul with one single move.
He shattered an island with just one punch.

13 Mario Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

Mario is awesome! He is the best character ever! Mario is a million times better than Kirby! Mario cam beat up kirby with ease! Mario is the number 1 best character ever!

Not really. Kirby could easily become Mario Kirby.

Not to mention, Mario probably can't throw a monster to the sun, screwing Gravity. - Mewbosses

We all know that this guy is fat. However he has a lot of useful abilities like he can breathe in space, survive fire, etc. He can take a 100 pound hammer to the head and still will keep going

He also has saved the universe twice and he defeated a boss made entirely out of shadows

He can survive on land, snow, sand, caves, underwater, even space! He can also get cool powers from punching blocks. But turtle shells hurt him...

14 Alex Mercer (Prototype)

The guy has the ability to manipulate his own mass, turning sections of his body into weapons at will. He can solidify his body, creating armor, or make it lighter, enabling him to practically fly. His power is the ability to mutate, and evolve on command, meaning that he can adapt to literally every situation in a matter of seconds. There is possibly no way to beat him, without holding the same abilities as he does, because he would just adapt. And if he was to die, all he would need is a little bit of flesh to reform.

Dude alex mercer is bad ass...

Alex mercer is practically a boss when it comes to smashing and crashing a city. He is definitely a badass, doing a lot of heavy parkour

Hey Alex should be in top 10 he is most powerful

15 Tails the Fox Tails the Fox

Tails is 300x smarter than Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison put together

This is just here for a Laugh 😒

16 Mewtwo (Pokemon) Mewtwo (Pokemon) Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Shadow above Mewtwo? That's an absolute joke. - Doge4lifeGaming

It's badass please put on top ten

Why the heck is Mario above this savage Mewtwo.

Mewtwo is defeated all the DBZ characters even frieza, mewtwo should easily defeat one above all?

17 Rosalina (Super Mario) Rosalina (Super Mario) Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

She can just reset the universe, and she's very smart.

18 Thor (Thor: God of Thunder)
19 Kazuya Mishima (Tekken)

Kazuya is planet level unlike these characters higher than him. He is extremely fast and could one shot most of the rest with telekinesis or lasers. OP! The only one here that is stronger than him is Asura.

Kazuya's devil powers have no limits he is in full control of his form now and is capable of destroying the whole world KAZUYA!

He has supreme control over the devil gene... He does not even need to tranform into his devil form and can still do telepathy and use his 3 eye for supreme destruction... He should be in the top 10

20 Link (Legend of Zelda) Link (Legend of Zelda) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Link could make it to 5 with fierce deity mask

This guy has the trifource of courage no to mention he was pretty badass for a kid in OOT and MM managing to defeat the three dungeons in OOT as a kid and whiz whole quest in MM as a kid. While of course as an adult he's more powerful but always in the end Link manages to win

He should be 1st, he is so awesome, sexy, kind, selfless, handsome, brave, compassionate and such a good role model. Okay okay I will admit it, I have a huge crush on Link.

Link is in the 9th place
