Most Powerful Fictional Characters


The Top Ten

1 Goku Goku 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.

Sure, doing the death battle way with no power scaling would make superman the strongest, but he has not even reached his full potential yet. If he had gone to somebody like guru who could unlock that, his power would more than triple, making him the strongest. Also, it has been stated that a power level of 300 can destroy a planet, and he has enough power in him to, by my estimations, destroy several hundred BILLION planets. Sure he can't think and warp reality, but that is only because that is not how he is able to use his power. If anyone could do it just because they have power, Goku would be omnipotent. He is limitlessly strong than the world breaker hulk, as at even the beggining of dragon ball z he could destroy worlds. World breaker hulk took on the closest thing to superman there is, (and there are a lot of knock offs) the sentry, who without using his full power drew galactus to a stalemate in power, and if galactus dies, the end of the universe comes, but anyway, the sentry ...more

Maybe Goku its not the powerful fictional character ever, but he is the most powerful fictional character in our heart

Goku still didn't reach his full potential and he's at God level now, able to destroy galaxies or more and unlike Superman. Goku actually knows how to fight.

a god

2 One Above All

The One Above All is by far the most powerful character ever created. The current number one, Goku, may be able to destroy galaxies, but I don't think he can make them on a whim, which is what it would take to be a speck of a blip on the One Above All's radar. The One Above All literally has power over everything. If Goku tried to fight him/her/it, The One Above All could easily just take Goku's abilities away, simply negate their existence. He/she/it could also negate his entire existence. That's real power.

Why is one above all not number one. Dude his name is one above all there can't be anyone stronger than him. I don't care how strong goku is, with a mere thought this guy could wipe him from existence.

He is boundlessly above absolutely everything, including existence and nonexistence, possibility, causality, dualism and non-dualism, the concepts of life and death, and his analogues at any level. - matenro

The guy can wipe out Goku by thinking about it I don t care if Goku has not reached his ful power one above all can negat his powers by saying it that is true power

3 Superman Superman 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.

Okay superman is extremely strong with basically unlimited power in all
Of his stats however if you have a stronger character feel free to post here and explain why
His traveling speed is extremely high capable of much faster speeds than light speed. Unfortunately traveling speed and fighting speed are totally different. An example is superman and Wonder Woman were sparring but Wonder Woman is faster than him in fights. An example is who is faster in a fight
Bruce lee or usain bolt
He can pick up a planet just saying
Literally flew through a red star

Unfortunately superman's powers and limits are extremely controversial because of how long his character existed with multiple changes to his character and powers
So let's just say he's as strong as he needs to be when the story calls.
Who knows probably superman
Is gonna reach a whole new limit to what his power is In a few years,

He has infinite power can lift infinite pages, pull the whole entire solar system penchant press the earth for a month and didn't break one sweat flew so fast the Spector had to stop him fought his own self from another multiverse won and shook the hole entire multiverse with each punch that's the same universe times infinity he can even tag the flash if her runs at him with his top speed witch is 1000 times faster then his own speed he even killed a fully developed doomsday with one punch he patched a hole in reality with his heat vision bigger feats than goku has ever done in his life that is why superman will win plus gokus flaw is he always wants to win fairly

I believe superman should be number 1 because every time get gets into a fight GE can't win he improves because he is of endless power on this earth yes I know that he can be affected if a red sun or kryptonite was involved but the only 2 people who would be smart enough to use that against him would be batman and led luthor and probably others who know his weakness and can obtain it

Uff...goku fanboys will mever admit that superman is a million times stronger

4 Saitama Saitama 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, (AKA "One Punch Man") although a satire of every character mentioned on this list, could be defined as a god. When provoked, he'll defeat enemies with just one punch. With his only noticeable weakness being that he needs to breathe, Saitama is a sure pick for this list.

His power is so great, feats can't even describe him. Because if he were to show his true power, it would be beyond human comprehension and all who hear of his true power would implode from having their brain overloaded.

Saitama is a comedy character created to simply be more powerful than anything and by anything I mean that any creature or other character that you think that can beat him is going lose with just "one punch"

He's a monster dude

5 Galactus Galactus Galactus is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Formerly a mortal man, Galactus is a cosmic entity who originally consumed planets to sustain his life force, and serves a functional role in the upkeep of the primary Marvel continuity. V 1 Comment
6 Bill Cipher Bill Cipher Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He more.

This guy can literally warp reality to his will. He takes control of entire dimensions as if it was as simple as adding a new card to your collection. No-one can compete with him.

It's awesome to see this guy up against The Silver Surfer. But if you don't know this guy, you would never know how powerful he really is! - LarkwingFlight

He can literally change the laws of physics. Freeze time and warp space. And him being a reality warper makes him extremely powerful. He is far stronger than goku or superman.

He is able to warp reality and can (allegedly) see into the future. With this he could sneak up on any enemy and explode their hearts

7 Thor Thor Thor is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name, is the Asgardian god of thunder and possesses the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, which grants him the ability of flight and weather manipulation more.

What how is he above vegeta.

8 Thanos Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55.

Thanos is wayy stronger than Goku - therealman

9 Silver Surfer Silver Surfer The Silver Surfer is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Born Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer's abilities are given to him through the Power Cosmic. His first appearance was in Fantastic Four #48 in 1966 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

Surfer is easily the most powerful comic book Superhero, The Power Cosmic allows him to do anything, he's unstoppable

Nothing compared to Goku.

10 The Presence

Wipes out universes with single thoughts dude! That's all I'll say about that

The Presence is the God Himself, Creator of the DC Universe. Everything that has ever happened or ever will is single-handedly determined by His thoughts and/or plans. That says it all.

The Newcomers

? Yukari Yakumo

Yukari Yakumo, from the Touhou series, literally has the ability in her spell card to control, warp, erase, and do much more with any boundary. She could control, warp or erase the boundary between red and green, she could control, warp or erase your boundary between life and death. To put it simply, she is at the very least nigh-omnipotent. But then again, she could warp the boundary between her being omnipotent or not. She could warp the boundary between her face and Mothra. I'm sure you get the point by now, she is AT LEAST ONE of the most powerful characters in fiction. - wearelegion

? SCP-682 SCP-682

The Contenders

11 Batman Batman Batman aka Bruce Wayne is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27.

Batman is number one. He killed the ultimate evil and the entire justice league!

He's batman, so you can't beat him

He created blindness.

12 Doomsday Doomsday Doomsday is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually depicted as an adversary of Superman.

Would anybody like to explain to me why The goddamned Doctor is above Doomsday? The being so strong that he literally cannot permanently die? He could destroy everybody on this list, if not the first try, then the second.

Can't die (not technically), becomes immune to what killed him. Way too low

Way down here why

13 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.

This guy May be cute, but is actually terrifying. According to death battle, he can beat majin buu, can crack a planet in half with his bare fist, survive a planet sized explosion, can throw a creature on a frying pan about 30 times his size over the surface of the sun and back to earth (or pop star), can devour entire planets, and his warp star can travel around 22,000,000,000 times the SPEED OF LIGHT. (Yes, I did the math.) This should be even higher, and is without a doubt the strongest Nintendo character ever. - CatsOMG

Kirby is not even strongest. I can list like 50 characters that are stronger than Kirby. I admit that he's extremely powerful, but not the strongest. - therealman

If no one noticed, when having no powers the pause menu on Kirby:Planet Robobot clearly states that kirby is a being of infinite power who can eat anything and copy anyone's special abilities and use them as his own, as well as the enemy can.

Note that Kirby can do all of this when he's ONLY an infant. And him as an adult would screw literally everyone over.

He can suck anything into him kirby is a good

14 Darkseid Darkseid

Darkseid Has many times proven to take on the entire justice league and barely loose. HE is indeed much stronger than superman and I therefore argue him at about the same level as beerus with the anti life codex.

15 The Doctor

I pick The Doctor for a few reasons: He's basically capable of anything. The size of his brain is so great, that what's inside of it would kill a human. He killed Satan. There's as much strength in his kindness as there is in any super hero's power. He defeated a billion billion Daleks. Technically The Silence destroyed the universe (unless it's occurred on multiple occasions, because I don't know everything), but he did put it back together. He's upended some of the most diabolical plans ever concocted with centuries of planning and execution and did it in a few moments. His will to save as many as possible (he always gives them a chance). A lot of the other characters are mostly written but he's done it on screen since 1963 (granted it went off the air for a while), but still... He was created with the limits of 1960s filming capabilities in mind, so he didn't get some of the over the top characteristics that a comic book character would get. Anyone can go in and create an all ...more

Very simply put...There are two contenders for the top, always, Goku and Superman. Neither have the brainpower, technology, or frankly the terrifying mind to defeat a man who can not only wipe out entire galaxy-spanning empires like they were flie on his food, but at one point, felt not even a drop of remorse for doing it. He has defeated Gods that are expicitly All Powerful, and once destroyed not only the ENTIRE UNIVERSE, but all of TIME AND SPACE...And then brought them back, because he's just that decent.

Personally learn to spell fly/flies before saying your character is the best.

The doctor is as close to a god as any above.

17 Hulk Hulk The Hulk is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1.

Dude he can't die! Bullets won't kill him, bombs won't kill him, even being flung to space to another planet never killed him, there was even a war called World War Hulk (in the comics) legit this guy's the strongest! Even when his Bruce Banner side dies, his hulk side remains alive forever. He's indestructible AND immortal.

Yo guys please put hulk in number1 cause goku is not the strongest hulk is

Hulk is not indestructible but close

Hulk is way stronger than Thor, also I know Batman did beat Hulk in a fight but if the tables were turned to say hands down muscle to muscle Hulk would obliterate Batman in seconds and if we're doing different variations I call Zombie Hulk to the stand.

Zombie Hulk ate Silver Surfer and Galactus with the aid of other infected supers and gained the power "Cosmic" with almost nigh omnipotence in power so with that power he'd be at least number five, With Goku, Saitama, Superman and One Above All ahead of him in that order.

Thank you for reading my opinion and validating it good day.

18 Zeus


19 Odin

Odin is arguably much stronger than thor

20 Akuma Akuma

1: because he tied with Asura

21 He-Man He-Man He-Man is the principal character of a series of comic books and several animated television series, characterized by his superhuman strength.

Really this low

He-Man is wayy stronger than 83. probably about top 20 - 30! - therealman

22 Living Tribunal

The Living Tribunal is explicitly stronger than Silver Surfer and The Hulk in-universe, so I'm not really sure why he's BELOW them on this list.

23 Omni-King

The One being who is the Supreme Ruler of 12 ( formerly 18, as he destroyed 6 universes just because his mood was a bit SPOILED ) amd can destroy anything he wants with a blink of an eye is indeed the strongest...while some characters possess strength to destroy an entire universe, he has already destroyed "6" universes

He can destroy all other characters on this list with 1 finger

You can't make a list like this because of the people's lack of research Omni king would one shot goth he would beat saitama but people vote for their favorite not for their strength

He can kill goku though

24 Godzilla Godzilla Godzilla is a giant monster originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan.

He's a nuclear monster. He almost killed the earth as Burning Godzilla. Put him as number one.

Crushed an entire city. How is that not powerful? - redhawk766

25 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman

Her powers are on par with Superman, and that's without taking off the bracelets. Her powers are limited severely by those, and she still kicks ass.

Yes, a person who's weaknesses are blades and getting tied up by a man is more powerful than Aang/Korra from Avatar.

According to officals she is stronger than superman

26 Kami Tenchi

He's an omnipotent God, he can just think of something then it will happen

Most powerful anime character ever, even surpaces the one above all

27 Cosmic Armor Superman
28 Apocalypse Apocalypse Apocalypse, also known as En Sabah Nur, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
29 Wolverine Wolverine Wolverine is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly associated with the X-Men. His powers and abilities include a healing factor and his signature adamantium claws and adamantium skeleton.
30 Asriel Dreemurr Asriel Dreemurr Asriel Dreemurr is a character from the 2015 game "Undertale". He was created by Toby Fox. more.

(Man I hate how the picture of This thing is fan art...) Anyways, Asriel is so powerful that in his God of hyperdeath form, he can erase entire timelines, And can create new ones with the blink of an eye. And he even states, this isn't even my true power. This should be MUCH higher and I think the reason it's all the way down here is that people hate the game now because the fandom has gone way too far. So no one really cares anymore. If this was a real list of the amount of power, this would at least be in the top 15. - CatsOMG

Asriel literally is capable of erasing entire timelines and creating entirely new ones in his "God Of Hyper-Death" form, plus infinite atk and def. Long story short, he makes Superman look like a whiny high school nerd. Case closed. Lol.

This is pretty true. Sure he's not the most powerful character in fiction, but he has a wide arsenal and he's also the God Of Hyperdeath - Ultron123

31 Grand Priest
32 Great Evil Beast
33 Vegeta Vegeta Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

If Goku is #1 then vegeta is #2

The only character to have surpassed the n number 1 on this list multiple times definitely deserves to be the true number 1

He,s Saiyan Prince dude.

On par with Goku

35 Jean Grey Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Stupid Mary sue gets random power-ups, every now and then. - Tia-Harribel

36 Superman Prime

Able to blow universes apart!

37 Beyonder

Excuse me!? He is the most powerful thing in marvel!

38 Azathoth Azathoth

Azathoth should clearly be number one. First of he is said to have created the universe and will destroy it, the entire universe is his dream and when he wakes up from his long sleep the universe will be no more. He controls time and space and everything. If you have all the other characters on this list and make them all go against azathoth at the same time then Azathoth would win. You just can't kill him the only temporary solution is to lure him to sleep with a song but it won't last forever and as I said earlier when he wakes up the entire universe will be no more. - PlasmaTesseract

Azathoth is overpowered the only way to temporarily stop him is by playing a kind of lullaby for him but if that song even stopped for a second then Azathoth would awake and the universe will cease to exist. He will then go rampage and create and destroy as he did before the universe existed.

Space, time and all of existence is his dream. Trying to kill him would wake him up and result in you and everything to be erased.

If he wakes up the whole is completey destroyed

How is he above a bucket of yellow paint? That is after all the thing that could kill him. Hell, You could just paint his ring yellow while he's sleeping and he'd lose all his powers. Boom, I just stopped god like being with paint.

48 Discord Discord

Impossible. Discord was only defeated by all magic and friendship magic

I really think Discord should be on a higher rank. I mean come on! He's a REALITY WARPER! He's basicly on almost the same level as Bill Cipher. Ok I do admit that he has a few known weaknesses, but still! *Sigh* People just underestimate him too much these days...

Scuse? Discord?! - redhawk766

He said it himself, he can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. what? you honestly think that the elements could stop him? he probably created them. he treated the whole ordeal like a game. You think Tierk took his magic? his eyes never changed color. you think chrysalis throne could stop his magic? he played it slow to see what would come about. he's at least just as powerful as Bill Cipher, if not more-so.
