Most Powerful Video Game CharactersAlright 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.
To be fair, I see people's points. I think that maybe Shadow is that little bit more powerful, but Kirby is certainly up there too.
I understand that some people may be like: Kirby isn't that powerful, look at how he can be damaged by these weak enemies!
This is a game.
Who'd play a game that you don't need to do anything in? It's like with Sonic, he's fast enough to cause a sonic boom, and can achieve such speeds in a matter of seconds. Could probably kill eggman within seconds.
But if he always used said speed, there'd be no game.
Also, think to the bosses he's fought. Some are beings that came from other dimensions!
Another boss, was a clockwork star. Something that could grant wishes. Who, gave another character so much power. He was able to rip himself in half to create a black hole, but then put himself back together with ease.
The biggest testament to his power, if my knowledge is correct about this. Would be his battle against Magolor. A character who was wearing something called the master crown, which possessed limitless power. Mentioned to be ...more
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Kirby is the best character to use. I mean, like I played a bunch of games using Kirby as my character. I even played against 3 people (online) and it was 3v1 and I litterally won.
Okay, if you'll stop laughing for a minute there is an explanation for why this guy is up here. He can absorb the powers of whoever he fights by eating them, thus becoming as powerful as them. Meaning he could potentially be as powerful as any other character on this list. Game, set, match.
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.
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 killed every God... Except Athena and Aphrodite. He killed the sisters of Fate. He killed all the titans. He died and fought his way out of hades 3 times. He entered and left hades willingly he destroyed olympuses link to the earth. In god of war 3 he tried killing himself and survived. He wields the blade of olympus... No kirby or asura could do that. I mean he literally can't die woluntarily or involuntarily.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For those who are saying he is an anime character... Get yourself clear... He was also a gaming character in the 90's as well as now... Uses fastest level of teleportation... How can anyone even catch him? "Transforms into god modes" He should be placed 2nd I.e after Asura
I've never played a Devil May Cry game, but what I do know is that Dante is our boy. This man has survived stabbings and being impaled almost every day, but shrugs them off like they were nothing but bug bites. His versatility is through the roof with is countless weapons (Heck, one of his weapons can turn into 666 different other weapons) and his 4 "styles". He goes against Vergil, who's speed is almost godlike. And with Devil May Cry 5, his Sin Devil mode could absolutely destroy anyone who gets in the way. I could go on and on, but my point is that Kratos doesn't hold a candle to Dante.
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 killed a reality warping Demon God who created a universe out of nothing and laughs off being shot in the head and stabbed in EVERY game! He can stop time, swing his sword millions of times a second, move faster than the speed of light, and is strong enough to stop a punch a colossal stone demon and has a sword which can cut through everything even space and time, plus a ton of other abilities. come on he should be number 2 Kratos is a weakling to this guy.
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.
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 we're gonna put up an argument of Asura vs. Superman, as much as I love Dc and Asuras Wrath, I'm pretty sure Supes cannot survive sheer DESINTIGRATION on top of he was beaten to death by a living rock (Doomsday) and I'm pretty damn sure Asura can deliver a harsher beating than him. It also seems that Asuras power scaling is probably unlimited much like Supermans and Gokus, it seems that he scales MUCH FASTER upward than the other two, making him able to shut them down quickly, on top of his evolutions making an obviously large jump in power with little effort and time, this makes Asira definitely seem like a well received character for the number one spot.
Superman and Goku had a fight and Superman won. If someone can beat Goku in a fight, they deserve to be on top.
Superman is totally OP. Seriously! He killed hecka lot of other super heroes with the eye laser, or so I heard
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.
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...
He can destroy the solar system/universe
Sepheroth is POWERFUL
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.
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
Aaw hell yeah. The Ultimate (Battle) Lifeform. The most powerful character in the Sonic universe (don't give me the he's never beaten Sonic bull he wears inhibitor rings. He could easily curbstomp Sonic anyday of the week if he wanted too
Shadow is AWESOME! My favorite Sonic character of ALL TIME! And the Halloween thing is pretty funny lol!
Not even the strongest Pokémon, much less the strongest game character. Mega Mewtwo X sucks because Mewtwo doesn't learn enough good physical moves, and Mega Mewtwo Y is useless because you can just use a Life Orb and not waste your Mega Evolution. It's easily outclassed by other special sweepers in Ubers like Primal Kyogre, Deoxys-Attack, and Ho-Oh. Pressure is also pretty useless when you're not bulky at all. The Psychic type is pretty bad since it's only super effective against Poison and Fighting, the former rarely appearing in Ubers. And to the guy who said "creator/god of the Pokémon universe.", I think you're talking about Arceus, but you wouldn't know that because you haven't played past Gen 1.
Mewtwo's weakest moves is vegito's strongest moves, and he had psychic, shadow ball, thunder and earthquake.
Mewtwo is defeated all the DBZ characters even frieza, mewtwo should easily defeat one above all?
He can beat kratos, he can killing kratos with psychic powers, he can kill kratos with shadow ball OHKO!
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.
She is my favorite character from mario and she can re-create the universe
She can just reset the universe, and she's very smart.
Nobody in Fortnite Would Defeat her
I would vote for the flood, but they are not on the list. SU about Kirby being a god already! Master chief can do almost everything he can! Kirby can survive in space, so can master chief. Kirby can survive entering a planet's atmosphere, so can master chief, HE HAS DONE IT MORE THAN ONCE! He can survive blast strong enough to destroy mountains, so can master chief. Chief. would. stomp. kirby
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.
Sure Master Chief may not be the strongest, but this guy's sheer will makes him unstoppable! He would beat everyone one this list because he would refuse to give in. Goku, doom guy, Dante, Superman, the would all eventually fall!
Master chief is an amazing character. I'll give you a recap on what he's done. He's blown up a halo,killed almost all the prophets,blown up a huge covenant super carrier,fallen from space in almost every game(and survived),blew up a forerunner ship(also survived),etc... Chief is an amazing character and will not back down to a fight. He's not a god. But I like to take him like one.
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.
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
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 got thrown off a cliff by his own dad. TWICE.
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.
Guys, if Alex Mercer eats a force user he could just reproduce midi-chlorians in himself so he's as powerful as Asura or stronger. Vitiate ate all life on a planet, Alex Mercer, with enough midi-chlorians, could eat all life in the galaxy, and become more powerful than Asura. If he gets his hands on the Vong, holy frick he could do literally anything with the kind of bio-technology they have. And that's just in the star wars universe, imagine if he got his hands on stuff from OTHER video game universes... Eating someone like Kirby or Shadow or Superman and giving him the ability to replicate their powers too? The universe doesn't stand a chance.
Mercer has what you could call true immortality, his potential for evolution is limitless, and to make sure you truly killed him you would need to incinerate the planet inside and out to be certain that nothing remains of him.
Alex Mercer should be in top ten I mean he could destroy Kratos even Kratos has been brutaly killing every one Alex Mercer is way beyond that plus Alex is agile able to dodge his attacks.first Alex is maybe stronger than kratos definitely faster in running speed in attack with claws,defense is good as well the only weakness Alex mercer has is reminding him about his past
He's the king of the gods also the father of kratos need I say more?
Zeus should be higher he almost beat kratos
Tails is 300x smarter than Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison put together
All tails needs to do to kill characters as powerful as asura is simply poke them - darth malgus
What are you doing here I still like u though
Yeah he is very powerful by doing jack dick in the newer games
While I'll admit he may not be able to beat kratos or asura, he surley can kill kirby. Yea if he get's close enough Kirby could suck him up and take his powers... but hasn't starkiller killed a dark version of himself already when he went to the jedi temple? And if all other strategies fail, starkiller will just keep throwing kirby at a wall untill he turns into pink gush.
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.
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.
He almost killed Vader and he blew up a huge portion of the death star. Also he can control people
I don't like him ugh
HOW IS THIS GUY NOT TOP 10?! HOW MANY RETARDS THINK MARIO AND SHADOW ARE MORE POWERFUL?!
HOW THE HELL IS KIRBY AND MEWTO ABOVE THOR, he's A FRIKING GOD
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
If this guy had ALL of his equipment, he would wreck it. Fierce Deity's mask from Majora's Mask + Triforce (he gets the entire thing in Skyward Sword) + Master Sword + Hylian Shield + Golden Gauntlets is enough to wreck everyone else. AND he has MUCH more in his inventory.
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
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.
Bro, what are you all talking about? I honestly would’ve thought that since the remake came out a little while ago, Xenoblade would get the respect it deserves, but NOPE. Shulk is powerful for reasons that are hard to explain. Spoiler alert. Shulk came back from the dead to become a capsule for a god. Once the god found his true form again, he started a huge war across the world he created and decided to destroy it and make a new one. Like thanos 8 years before he sort of did it. But Shulk doesn’t want the universe to be erased, so he kills this god, and than becomes the heir to that gods power. SHULK LITERALLY BECOMES A GOD BY THE END OF THE GAME. He can also manipulate time so that his will. He knows every move an enemy can make before they make it. The only characters in existence I can see being worthy opponents to him are Kefka from FF6 (who I couldn’t find despite Sephiroth being number 7) and that one god guy from dragon ball z. If only this game had, more love, it ...more
He literally recreated the universe after killing its creator. Far more powerful than some of the characters who are currently taking the top spots.
Well, I mean he did kill a god, come back from the dead, and not to mention rewrite the fabric of the universe...
XENOBLADE IS LIFE!
Turned down an offer to become a god and defeated the God who made that offer. Most powerful character in my opinion.
He can destroy your soul with one single move.
He shattered an island with just one punch.
He tied with Asura... Enough said
He is the destroyer of heaven.
The father of all demons
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 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.
Knuckles is strongest and best character ever
But People are so idiots whose thinking him weak or stupid
but its wrong
knuckles is smarter, stronger and cooler than sonic
than you thinking
Knuckles should be top 10 at least because he knocked out super sonic in one punch..
Need I say more?
Why kratos is number 1? I don't know. The "gods" weren't even island busting, hell dante could kick kratos' ass too, that is a great example of GOW fanboys, man I like kratos but putting him above people who can stomp his whole GOW universe is just wrong. Asura could beat everyone on this list, the only one giving him trouble is dante
He is without a doubt the strongest character on this list, just watch a single boss fight from "Asura's Wrath" and you'll see.
Asura legit destroyed a being larger than a PLANET. He also destroyed his own creator how is he this low?
I agree that Asura is the strongest video game character
Luigi Is the strongest video game character of all time. This man can literally Make Kratos fall to his knees by doing absolutely nothing. Every time Luigi blinks, The floor beneath us shakes and rumbles. These are now known to us as earthquakes. Luigi can literally uppercut Kirby into Orbit. Luigi once kicked dust at Goku, and then Goku fell 12,450 Miles into the ground. He once faced off against Rosalina, and when Rosalina was about to reset the universe, Luigi said "Bye-Bye" and then Rosalina just perished. One time, Luigi threw a rock into outer space, and that rock is now known to us as the "Moon". Truly the strongest video game character of all time.
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 just has do nothing and he is the most powerful video game character
Play super paper mario and you will see why he should be number one
He is super strong. He can use mind control to move objects! He should be way higher than this!
can levitate himself and objects. I like him
Let's see. She can use a variety of weapons, mainly pistols which are also attached to her feet. She can use her hair to attack enemies, which by the way are ANGELS. She can freeze time by merely dodging an attack. Bayonetta has the power to summon powerful demons from hell, including a huge demon that punched a god into the sun. Oh, and she defeated a GOD! In space! If that wasn't badass enough, she then destroyed the god in the sun! Do I need to say anymore?
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
Not a fan of Bayonetta, but she should be WAY higher.
Defeated by Dante (Devil May Cry 4) enough to say
