Most Powerful Bungou Stray Dogs Characters


The Top Ten

1 Osamu Dazai Osamu Dazai

Like how smart he is and the way he gets anyone to do what he wants. He knows what their going to do because he's thinking so many moves ahead, the enemy think that they figured out what he's thinking only to play into his trap.

He can manipulate anyone with his intelligence. He can play with his opponents minds. He's smart.

He's really smart and strong and his ability No Longer Human is awesome plus he is my favorite character!

Even though his ability is supportive, his intelligence makes up for his offensiveness. Thinking so many steps ahead, even the phisically strongest opponents are having a hard time keeping up

2 Chuuya Nakahara Chuuya Nakahara

He LITERALLY has a GOD inside of him

Best martial artist in the port mafia and he also can send Kenji, Which is the strongest member in the ADA physically wise, flying without using his ability, Plus he merged with arahabaki, God of destruction, Which gained him more power

He could fight without his ability.


3 Fyodor Dostoyevsky Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Just as smart and cunning as Dazai, with an ability that supposedly kill people just by touching them. Enough said. - Goku02

4 Howard Phillips Lovecraft Howard Phillips Lovecraft

Not an ability,

Dazai and Fyodor seem to be the only one cunning and powerful enough to figure out how to defeat Lovecraft before getting killed - Goku02

Even if he doesn’t win a battle, he can’t be killed. physically can’t. easily the strongest in bsd

It’s heavily implied that he’s actually “The Great Old One”. Dazai was not able to nullify his “ability” Which means it’s not an “ability”. He is so nonchalant that if he did care about defeating anyone he’ll obviously win since after being blown by Chuuya and Dazai he just regenerated. And he even said so himself that since his contract is done he’ll go back to sleep. I'm absolutely 100% sure that he’s not human. He’s based off Lovecraft’s (the real one) “Cthulhu” that is “a great power that lies in a death-like slumber beneath the Pacific Ocean”.

5 Nikolai Gogol

Because his ability allow him to summon anything from his coat

6 Arahabaki

He's the god of destruction.
He's form has chūya is the only thing that's stopping him from.neing the strongest!

He does not have picture nor instagram and you spelled.neing as.neing which is a correct spelling of.neing and here is a link go to it

7 Arthur Rimbaud Arthur Rimbaud Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud (20 October 1854 – 10 November 1891) was a French poet who is known for his influence on modern literature and arts, which prefigured surrealism.
8 Ivan Goncharov

I don't think he "deserves" to be only in 8th place (yeah, at the moment he is in this position). Ivan, Chuuya and Akutagawa are the examples of who can defeat a long-distance attack. If a sniper shoots Ivan he can easily create a wall to block the bullet(s), he can stay in a egg made of rock, he can make rocks floate and rotate like he did in 3rd season to protect himself... And it's quite impossible to bring him in a place where the stone doesn't exist. At least, I don't know if you live in a planet completely made of air, fire, water or something else but you are safe from that Russian.
I finished my reasons, and I'm sorry for my Grammar mistakes. I hope you understood what I tried to say! - AkuraRoth

He does possess a super powerful ability indeed. He also knows how to use his powers effectively. - Goku02

9 Atsushi Nakajima Atsushi Nakajima

As time progresses I think we will find that Atsushi becomes the strongest character in the series. Aside from his lack of experience (already shown to be growing stronger each season as his experience grows), his only downside is his self image. When he becomes confident in himself I think we will see him merge with the weretiger and become the strongest person in the show.

Atsushi may not look strong but give him time he'll be the strongest character soon I mean after all they are making a season 3 which airs in April 2019 I can't wait to see who the new cast will be, and how they will bring the characters to life. Just like the original group.

My fave character but impartially I believe there is room for improvement and overall think with time he will become the strongest character.All he has to do is have a little more fate in himself and train to become more stronger after all he only started learning control not to long,I for one thinks once he learns to control his power he would be unstoppable.I would very much like to see Atsushi bond with the beast within him.

Likely has the most powerful ability in the show his only real down fall is lack of experience

10 Ryūnosuke Akutagawa

He got

The Newcomers

? Shizuo Heiwajima Shizuo Heiwajima

The Contenders

11 Sakunosuke Oda Sakunosuke Oda

His ability is really strong but the other things is his skill as an assassin. If you read the light novel Origin of the Detective Agency: Untold Story.
Even with his eyes blindfolded, he can still shoot precisely at the target. Even putting ability aside, he's still one of the best fighting skill.

Without a very clever idea no one could defeat him imagine him with a partner with a power that would work well with him but who

For the short time he appeared, he was one of the best overall characters in this anime. Trully incredible because of his ability and his attitude and behavior.

Should have been top 3, dazai is the strongest ability user but I think odasaku can kill him pretty easy (also fyodor, because odasaku can't be killed by impromptu attack)

12 Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald

The amount of wealth he yields translates to his power. At the end of season 2, I'd say he'd be the most powerful, gifted character other than Chuuya and Dazai.

It depends on how much money he's got, but if he is as rich as he was when fighting Atsushi and Akutagawa, he'd be a force to be reckoned with. - Goku02

13 Yumeno Kyusaku Q Yumeno Kyusaku Q

Q should most definitely be higher on the list due to his dangerous ability. - aieesa

I think he has a weakness that is his durability. Many characters with long-ranged attacks can kill him from afar before his being able to get them to hurt him and meet the requirements for his ability to be able to be activated. - Goku02

14 Kyouka Izumi Kyouka Izumi
15 Edogawa Rampo

Can figure out a solution, he is literally the best detective even without an ability

He can fugure anything within less than seconds

16 Kouyou Ozaki Kouyou Ozaki
17 André Gide

He has the ability similar to Odasaku's, along with great leadership skills and his considerable shooting skills. - Goku02

18 Ogai Mori

The leader of the port mafia and is “the embodiment of logic” according to Dazai. - scarey2243

19 Saigiku Jouno
20 Tetchō Suehiro
21 Doppo Kunikida
22 Kenji Miyazawa Kenji Miyazawa

He literally can’t take most damage, in combat fights.

He usually has the upper hand in nearly all combat fights.

But he may be but down the list for his personality of being naturally to nice.

23 Ouchi Fukuchi
24 Alexander Pushkin Alexander Pushkin Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin (6 June [O.S. 26 May] 1799 – 10 February [O.S. 29 January] 1837) was a Russian poet, playwright, and novelist of the Romantic era who is considered by many to be the greatest Russian poet and the founder of modern Russian literature.
25 Yosano Akiko Yosano Akiko

She is so powerful

26 Doskejnd
27 Ace
28 Tatsuhiko Shibusawa
29 John Steinbeck John Steinbeck
30 Teruko Okura
31 Nathaniel Hawthorne
32 TodoRoki

Likes cheese and gets beat by his dad
