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 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

Kirby is truly the strongest character of all time in gaming history and must stay to claim his 1st place spot.
He can survive space, breathe underwater. (Yes, but he only wears goggles and a snorkel) He can devour his foes and gain their powers.
Does he use all this power for good? Well, usually just whatever he sets his mind onto for example--In Kirby Squeak Sqaud...a piece of cake (. -. )
While unleashing several evils upon the world and defeating them.
Kirby is even more powerful than a god inside of his own series.
It makes sense why they make him less powerful in the Smash Bros. Series

Kirby has infinite power, infinite fighting skill, is indestructible and immortal Anyone he fights he can take their power and use it more effectively than they can. In addition to this, he can freeze time and has multiversal level weapons like the ultra sword (canonically infinite)

He also killed limitless beings like Maglor, and committed mass genocide over a piece of cake.

Anyone else on the list cannot rival Kirby, because it would be like fighting a stronger version of themselves. God beings like Kratos would simply be fighting an infinitely stronger version of themselves.

This may sound biased but it is entirely cannon information, please correct my facts if they are wrong, but please don't argue without actual proof or fact against this

Despite the criticism from fans of Kratos or Asura, Kirby is indeed the strongest video game character ever. His limitless potential with his copy ability is already enough to make him the strongest, backed up even further by his achievements so far.

2 Kratos (God of War)

He do good boi he could destroy kirby

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

Kratos massacred the gods. He killed the titan Cronos and beat Zeus into a bloody pulp. He’s the most powerful game character ever.

Dude can easily kick kirbys but

3 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 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. more.

I don't know much about DBZ, so I could be wrong when I say this, but Goku didn't originate from a video game. Sure, he has appeared in them, but still.

Let me start off with one thing, EVEN THOUGH HE IS A ANIME CHARACTER HE HAS BEEN IN A NUMBER OF GAMES SO FOR YOU PEOPLE WHO SAY "OH HE IS A ANIME CHARACTER" DOESN'T MEAN HE CAN'T BE A GAME CHARACTER. Now I'm done. Anyway Goku is a pretty strong dude. He have the power of gods. Matter a fact he has had so much power at a time that he even frighten the gods. Now if you have had so much power that you had given a scare to a god I would say that you are one if not the most powerful characters ever. Also Goku is the best martial artist in 7th universe. So combine that with divine strength and the grestest martial art user ever and you get a very deadly character. Good thing he is good guy and not like Frieza or Cell.

He's a god boi

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

4 Dante (Devil May Cry) Dante (Devil May Cry) Dante is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, created and published by Capcom.

Mundus creats a universe to fight Dante DMC 5 Dante is above sparda.

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 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.

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

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. more.

The strongest ever...

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.

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

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

6 Sephiroth (Final Fantasy) Sephiroth (Final Fantasy) Sephiroth is a fictional character and main antagonist in the role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII developed by Square.

He can destroy the solar system/universe

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

7 Apprentice (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed)

Darth vader is not very strong...

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

8 Master Chief (Halo) Master Chief (Halo) Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, more commonly known as the Master Chief, is a SPARTAN-II commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. He is the protagonist and main character in both the Halo trilogy and Reclaimer Saga.

No he is stronger than sonic how is that posible? he got a steroid that lasts forever,yes you might be saying in halo it takes 1 punch to take him down yes but that's to the back of the head so the circet line gets pushed in the brain and causes john to colaspe on his own body I rest my case

Everyone who voted him in, is lying to themselves sorry, but doomguy is better.

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.

9 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

I agree I think his stronger then master chief he has the power to shapeshift en read e his mass can tuned his arm into any weapon he wants

10 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

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

He has killed a god, he beat giant robots, he goes faster than the speed of sound, and he should be #1

The Contenders

11 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.

I believe that Shadow is the strongest character because of the rings that he has on his wrists and ankles, These rings limit his power. When Shadow takes the rings off his wrists he gets a power up in strength, speed, power etc. I think the ones on his ankles do the same thing, except they give him more of his full power of speed. I know Shadow could destroy pretty much everyone on this list but I believe he doesn't expose his true power because he does not want be seen as a threat to humanity.

Y as I love shadow!

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.

12 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.

She should be higher than Mario, Sonic, and Shadow. Because she’s a goddess that can stop time, destroy the whole universe at any second, and reset everything.

13 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.

14 Thor (Thor: God of Thunder)



15 Asura (Asura’s Wrath)

I agree that Asura is the strongest video game character

16 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 could easily defeat Kirby with just one fire ball...

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

A simple fire ball from Mario could easily beat Kirby

Dude! He is super mario no one in better than him, plus he picked up and threw a castle 100x his own weight, survived an exploding planet, and has astounding fist strength. Truly the best

17 Tails the Fox Tails the Fox Miles "Tails" Prower is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the title character's best friend and sidekick.

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

He is strong

What are you doing here I still like u though

All tails needs to do to kill characters as powerful as asura is simply poke them - darth malgus

18 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.

19 Kazuya Mishima (Tekken) Kazuya Mishima (Tekken) Kazuya Mishima is a fictional character in Bandai Namco's Tekken fighting game series, first featured as the protagonist in the original 1994 game.

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 Zeus (God of War)

He's the king of the gods also the father of kratos need I say more?

Zeus should be higher he almost beat kratos

21 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.

How is Link not in the top 5? He would beat most of these characters to a bloody pulp. He could easily take out Cole and Samus, and Luigi and Mario wouldn't stand a chance against him.

Champion Link from Breath of The Wild is THE most powerful video game character of all time and here's why: let's start with his skills. He bested adults in sword duels when he was only 4 years old, and in a memory it's shown that he slaughtered multiple Lynels which are the most powerful enemy in the game next to Ganon WITHOUT A SHIELD OR BOW - only the Master Sword. Next, let's talk about his large arsenal of weapons. His standard weapons usually are the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, a boomerang, and a bow with multiple types of arrows - regular, fire, ice, electric, bomb, and ancient (which can kill a Lynel with one shot) and then there's the Sheikah Slate. With the Sheikah Slate, he can use 7 runes: bomb, magnesis, stasis, cryonis, camera (not useful in battle though), master cycle zero, and amiibo. And then there's the Champions' abilities (which pretty much make him a god): Mipha's Grace which instantly ressurects him with full health + some extra health if he should ever die in ...more

Link could stop anyone with the stasis rune, and one swipe of the master sword, they would be sealed for eternity(if they're evil). and the champions powers basically make him invincible. Enough said.

Link could make it to 5 with fierce deity mask

22 Arceus (Pokemon) Arceus (Pokemon) Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

God. Period.

Why is he not in the top 10? His pokedex entry literally says he shaped the UNIVERSE. Therefore his power must exceed that of any character on this list who is a pitiful "planet buster." Add to that that he can embody any type, he has 1000 invisible arms and (in the anime) with all his plates he can block ANY attack. He would be literally indestructible. However, I do understand the whole "he gets caught by a human throwing balls at him" argument. Well, every character must have an exploitable weakness for the sake of the plot. Superman falls down at the sight of kryptonite, but that doesn't stop him from being number 6 on this list (at the time of writing). At least, Arceus should be above Waddle Dee, Yoshi, Mario, Luigi and Mewtwo.

He made a anything in the Pokemon game and anime

How in the FRICK is Arceus, Pokemon's equivalent of God, lower than Mewtwo, some human's lab experiment?

23 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

He just has do nothing and he is the most powerful video game character

Somebody strong and powerful please!

Luigi is the ultimate God of all worlds all hail The Supreme Alpha Leader General Admiral President Prime Minister King High Councillor God of the multiverse, Luigi the plumber.

He is a god of destruction.

24 Asriel (Undertale)

One human soul is so strong that it can reset a timeline so Asriel has 6 human soul and all monster soul and that is one god so think about it he so be in the top 5 at least

The top 10 list should probably be in this order Asura, Asriel, Arceus, Infinite,Sonic, Silver, Kirby, Superman, Goku, and Chara

He is way more powerful he can manipulate time and reality itself and not to mention that he is able to control the player and make them be able to now move plus he has endless defense and lives. I like the gods of war and kirby series but Asriel could easily defeat them.

Asriel should be way higher know this list. He can throw stars, attack with chaos sabers and blasters... when he's messing around. When he goes angel of death, he literally destroys the multi verse by merely standing there, plus he removes you're ability to do anything but struggle.

25 Death (Darksiders 2)

Death cannot die as soon as the Apocalypse begins.
He is invincible at that time.
It's a rule made by the creator himself.

Death is amazingly strong..wanna check? Play the game then.

U cannot kill death he is death himself ENOUGH SAID!

26 Chuck Norris (Mugen)


Takes the sun out of orbit,can kill a person in one punch,make explosions with his mind...enough said

The cheap one should be 1

Needs to be 1

27 Chara (Undertale) Chara (Undertale) Chara is a character in the game Undertale by Toby "Radiation" Fox who is one of the seven people to fall to the Underground prior to the fall of the player character. Her name can be changed by the player and will be assumed as the player character, until the Pacifist Route when Asriel asks for the more.

Well... He can erase a "world" with a button... Literally.

Though we don't know here stats, she possesses you and takes your soul, forcing you to reset the game. Hiding behind your screen, she manipulates you and forces you to do many things. Highly manipulative and able to do almost anything, she may not be the strongest, but is most powerful and deadly.

He becomes God in the Genacide route

Chara can DESTROY TIMELINES AND WORLDS BY STABBING THEM! how is chara not any higher?

28 Michael Afton (FNaF) Michael Afton (FNaF) Michael Afton (also nicknamed as "Eggs Benedict" by the HandUnit) is the main protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location. He is the son of William Afton, and brother of the deceased Elizabeth Afton.

Why is this here?

He survived a spring trapped SUIT he is a god and he also survived a night at a hunted pizzeria that let me remind you that has animatronics trying to kill you!

29 Samus Aran (Metroid) Samus Aran (Metroid) Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

The fact that Samus isn't top 5 is a travesty.

A vastly genetically powerful, genius level, warrior with a suit that can identify any and all weaknesses. She basically has nuclear weapons depending on the suit, I mean come on...

Has destroyed 4 planets. Won 2 wars without assistance or backup. Can take hundreds of high-power explosives head-on without dying. Carries a payload of 255 missiles at maximum. Bullets are completely useless. Even without the suit, she's a master of hand to hand combat and has been infused with alien DNA. Essentially a walking weapon of mass destruction.

Just get the Ice-Wave-Plasma beam in Super Metroid and you'll see - xandermartin98

30 DoomGuy (Doom) DoomGuy (Doom) The Doomguy, commonly known as the Marine and referred to as the Doom Slayer in the rebooted portion of the series, is the unnamed player character in the Doom video game franchise of first-person shooters created by id Software, and its sequels and spin-off media.

Man literally spent thousands of years in hell fighting demons

He fought hell itself for eons on his own, with his bare hands. He can't be killed, how is he this low?

This space marine in green armor took down the entirety of Hell, and even wrecked it to a pile of rubble. Arguably the most powerful human video game character, in my opinion.

Doomguy went through hell more than 5 time plus super shotgun and the BFG is just OP - Aguythatpeopleignores

31 Tabuu (Super Smash Bros Brawl)

He turned almost every fighter of brawl into useless trophies whilst barely lifting a finger. Therefore his power and strength easily surpasses any single character in brawl, which means he should definitely be higher then anyone on this list who was in brawl: Higher then kirby who somehow managed to get into top five, higher then sonic higher then Mario and higher then link.

He killed master hand and turned almost everyone into trophies

32 James Heller (Prototype 2) James Heller (Prototype 2)

Why is Heller so low? He is the only guy that could ever kill Mercer, even a nuke couldn't destroy Mercer, Heller is the boss and for those who don't know him, find something about him, he's a damn beast

He messed up Mercer man! Why is he so low when Alex is at the top 10s

This guy can literally absorb anyone else's powers.

He is better than Mercer

33 Aleph (Shin Megami Tensei II)

Cyberpunk Jesus Christ kills the devil himself, the archangels, God's Judge and God himself in the neutral route.

34 Bayonetta (Bayonetta) Bayonetta (Bayonetta) Bayonetta, real name Cereza, is a fictional character and protagonist of the video game Bayonetta and its sequel, developed by PlatinumGames and published by Sega and Nintendo respectively.

Lets break this down:

endurance - survived travelling through space and re-entering the earth's atmosphere, will always survive the most powerful attack of Rodin in his original form, has had tonnes of rocks dropped on her and blasted it away with ease

strength - flips massive angels, a tram car fell on her and she stopped it with the palm of her hand and threw it like it weighed like a feather, headbutted a skyscraper and used her thighs to resist the momentum of a massive satellite turning it around and sending it flying

vitality - ageless and immortal

agility - moves like a dancer/gymnast and can string a number of flips to avoid attacks, also has the reflexes to dodge instantly

intelligence - whilst she doesn't reveal it Umbra witches like Bayonetta are masters of alchemy to make remedies to heal or give her an edge in combat, as well as technology creating combat armour likely centuries ahead of current technology going as early back as 500 ...more

Bayonetta is top 10 for sure.

Let’s be honest, she should AT LEAST be in top 3

Not a fan of Bayonetta, but she should be WAY higher. - Drawbox

I think fierce deity would be equal to nightmare

36 Bowser (Super Mario) Bowser (Super Mario) Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first more.

Dude he is boss. He has survived falling into LAVA and he has been thrown at a exploding spike ball and off a 5000foot cliff many times. Also he can breathe fire

He resisted the pull of a black hole while being shot at by asteroids.

He destroyed the universe twice only he has done that

Bowser is awesome
For my opinion he's better than Mario and wario
I wish they made a super Mario game that you can play as Bowser or bad guys.
That would be epic!

38 Raiden (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance) Raiden (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance) Raiden (Formerly Jack) is a fictional character and a prominent protagonist in the Metal Gear series by Hideo Kojima, being the main hero of Metal Gear Solid II (as a Foxhound soldier) and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (As a modified cyborg).

Why the hell is Raiden so far down? I could talk for hours about how ridiculously powerful he is. Play the game and you would see what I mean.

He is a badass cyborg ninja that can throw a big-ass building-sized robot with ease and can be as fast or even faster than sonic,has a mode where the more pain he gets the harder and stronger he gets.His only problem is his amount of energy he can use,mortality(but still he's REALLY hard to kill),and his artificial blood.

For the world that he inhabits - which is essentially the real world, Raiden trumps virtually all foes that he encounters and puts any normals humans like you and me to shame.
The speed at which he runs is far beyond what any human can accomplish
His strength is more than just ludicrous: being able to lift thousand ton war machines.
And his combat prowess with a sword is obsurd at times, with the ability to deflect incoming bullets with a flick of his sword, and the way he rapidly & precisely cuts through his opponents and obstacles at supersonic speeds.
He's flashy as well.
In other fictitious video game worlds against characters that have similar traits, he will get outclassed, but in the Liberia, Raiden is more than a force to be reckoned with.

39 Strider Hiryu Strider Hiryu

He is the strongest of all.He can kill everyone because he was a Special-A class strider.Even a F class strider can kill god and everything.Hiryu was the only Special-A class strider in his school.He was a omnipotent.

Can cut human limbs bare-handed, can outrun special weaponry designed to hit supersonic+ targets, can outrun an explosion/minefield, resist the heat of atmospheric reentry, his sword can cut through anything, can release homing projectiles with the same sharpness, can be used as a high-power taser or boomerang, can reflect bullets and turn into an absolute-zero freezing edge. What's not to love?

40 Solid Snake Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

Solid snke has defeated a whole army of communists, he is a definition of a true spy. He is also a master of variety of martial arts (he even made one with The Boss). He knows how to use any weapon out there. He is a ULTIMATE soldier.

He is talking about Big Boss(Naked Snake) not Solid Snake.

Solid snake has defeated his father (Big Boss),taught and helped Raiden how to do the simple sword stuff and complete the mission,fought countless times and never has he died,destroyed a whole base using only its own supplies,the information of his supporters(Campbell,Otacon,Mei Ling etc. Etc.),Meryl at few times(She is a POW soldier by the way),and Grey Fox too(The first cyborg ninja in the series).

While Big Boss has defeated an army that was trying to take Russia for it's leader. And his mentor The Boss who is also a perfect soldier.So perfect that she was the leader of the Special forces of America then.Even Big boss managed to beat that.

41 Alucard (Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night) Alucard (Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night) Adrian Fahrenheit Țepeș, better known as Alucard, is a character in Konami's Castlevania series of video games.

The most overpowered playable character in CV history. - xandermartin98

44 Shulk (Xenoblade) Shulk (Xenoblade) Shulk is a fictional character and the protagonist from Monolith Soft's 2010 role-playing video game Xenoblade Chronicles, part of their overarching Xeno series of video games.

He's a god alright

Well, I mean he did kill a god, come back from the dead, and not to mention rewrite the fabric of the universe...


He literally recreated the universe after killing its creator. Far more powerful than some of the characters who are currently taking the top spots.

Turned down an offer to become a god and defeated the God who made that offer. Most powerful character in my opinion.

Really? The man who took down Sephiroth, who is number 8 on this list? I feel shamed.

46 Kit Yun (Rise to Honor)
47 Knuckles the Echidna Knuckles the Echidna Knuckles the Echidna is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a red anthropomorphic echidna who is determined and serious, but sometimes gullible. He has the ability to glide and climb up walls, and is a powerful fighter due to his spiked hands.

Seriously why he is too low in this list?
Knuckles is most strongest sonic character why?
Because he knocked out super sonic in one punch.
Also he can transform into super/hyper knuckles
Which makes him literally god just like super/hyper sonic

Knuckles should be top 10 at least because he knocked out super sonic in one punch..
Need I say more?

Knuckles is AWESOME! My favorite Sonic character of ALL TIME! he knocked out SUPER SONIC! knuckles has god's strength! he should be higher than overrated Shadow! I'm talking about Canon (Real) knuckles not about boom's knuckles.

Tails is above him... what dumb joke!
knuckles can beat tails at just 1% of His Power.
also look on tails in sonic forces lol

48 Sans (Undertale) Sans (Undertale) Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult more.

Any monster can be as strong as asriel as long has they have enough human souls. Sans is strongest character beating even omega flowey many times as flowey says he caused him more than his fair share of resets even when he had so many human souls he was able to defeat him over and over without dying or even being hit. If his base power is stronger than 6 human souls and he absorbs 6 more, he would be a god killing god of patience and justice.

Pretty good for someone with stats of attack 1 and defense 1.

Not #1 b/c he could be beaten with someone who keeps coming back from Death.

Well he would be second soon because I did research and his father would be the most powerful and his father is W.D. Gaster, I did research and saw that the magic colors are black and white...there was a bunch of hints and clues in the undertale game so far to say that W.D. Gaster will eventually be in as you can fight, Toby Fox says that he will make a sequal or something to that nature and all theories point that W.D. Gaster might be in it and if you took the genocide route he might fight you or fight you either way or treat you like a lab rat but anyways, sans can teleport and has the same powers as Frisk almost and say that Sans should be on the most 50, not one though because Steve should be one and if you watched Game Theorists than you will know why. - jonathanpecany

Sans will kill you the first time you meet him no matter how good you think you are. In fact, the only reason you're able to beat him at all is because you eventually memorize his attack patterns after reloading so much. Even then, he'll still kill you another 10 times before you finally win.

49 Serge (Chrono Cross)
50 Ganondorf (Legend of Zelda) Ganondorf (Legend of Zelda) Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

In SSB4 he was pretty OP

No, Meta Knight is just the supposed "top tier" which doesn't mean a thing, since it was made up by fans. Damage wise, Ganondorf is the single strongest character in both Melee and Brawl, and probably remains that way in the new games.

Defeated browser (Mario series)

He take over hyrule and is the strongest in ssbb
