Top Ten Powerful Vampire Diaries Characters

The Top Ten

1 Niklaus Mikaelson

He is the strongest and second youngest Original he is "The Beast".

He is the best and strongest amongst all. His strategies are just fabulous he always wins. He is funny and crazy. If he loves someone then he will do anything to protect them. He always want to be king but more than that he want to be loved by everyone. He fears that he will end up alone but I Don't think so as he is loved by many.

As the original hybrid it makes sense that he is the strongest

He is a brilliant strategist, easily gets others to do his bidding due to the sheer fact that they're terrified. Has a bite that can kill any vampire and can easily over-power them and werewolves alike. The only advantage that Silas had over Klaus was his mind manipulation. He can also over-power his siblings without question. This begs the question, why did Klaus deal with Damon and Stefan? Oh wait, they needed a show.

2 Silas

The original Doppelganger of Stefan and the keeper of the vampire cure and he is a witch.

SILAS IS STRONGER THAN KLAUS! He managed to manipulate Klaus and make him imagine there was a White Oak Stake partially in him and had Klaus terrified.

So yes, Silas is definitely stronger than Klaus,

Oh, and he's immortal.

He can control so many people at once with his mind, heal, he's immortal, plus he's 2,000 years old. People are picking Klaus because he's their favorite, and I'm pretty sure Silas is stronger than Bonnie, to be honest.

He is clearly the most powerful character since he has actual mind control not just compulsion. He was also the first immortal being.

3 Qetsiyah

the woman who created a world for dead supernatural beings who created real immortality who resurrected her self just like that

How is she not number 1. She created true immortality, literally resurrected herself with ease, made bonnie the anchor, created a cure for importality. All of the storylines somehow date back to her. She didn't seem so menacing on the show but she is definitely the most powerful gifted spell casting witch in tvd universe. I say either her or dahlia are undeniably the most powerful, bear in mind dahlia herself couldn't even create true immortality, she had to sleep for 100 years for only a year alive.

She is the most powerful witch in both of the series, hands down.

She, in my opinion, is stronger than everyone else but Silas. Maybe Dahlia is as strong as her, but I doubt it. Should be number two on the list.

4 Bonnie Bennett

No no Bonnie Bennett should be at the top, no one in the show would be alive without her

Bonnie has acquired many different types of magics and although she always looses her power she seems to get it back through sheer will. She is the only witch whom a vampire could not bite and had even the mighty Klaus thinking twice about confronting her. She is able to adapt quickly and isn't foolish like most young witches. She is the main reason I watch TVD.

She seems to not be limited in her magical potential, no matter what issue she faces her magic adapts to deal with it and I feel that this could make her top Nik

Shes a badass... That's all there is to it... Especially with that expression magic

5 Katerina Petrova

Definitely should be above Damon. She is by far the strongest non original. She is the smartest, fastest, strongest, and being on the run for 500 years has only made her more powerful.

She is the best at survival. She escaped from Klaus for 500 years. She never gave up fighting for her life and she is funny.

I'm shocked she isn't at least 2nd she is a survivor and she made the show so much better by season 2

She was amazing so sad she died

6 Rebekah

She is an original which makes her one of the strongest beings.

She is a great liar not as strong as her fellow siblings she was able to make elena jump from a cliff and sneaped stefan's neck without him seeing it coming she may not be that strong but she was able to take down caroline and tyler with ease

Love her wish she was on the show more very strong still Elijah and kol I think might be lil stronger

She has Klaus's protection. Klaus will protect her with his life.

7 Damon

The real deal, dude has done lots of things with both klaus, Elijah, his bro Stephen, Enzo and all. Knows the perfect way to torture and easiest way to kill I don't get why he's below Stephen

Wonderful actor absolutely loved this character and so easy on the eye.

He went trough so much. Even when no one believed him, when everyone thought he was a lost cause, he held his head high. He has changed so much looking back at the beginning of the vampire diaries. He made things happen. He’s my favorite character because of his passion and because he believes in himself. He turned his pain into strength. Over and over again. That, makes him the strongest person ever.

Will die for Elena and for his family and friends. May not be the strongest physically, but with his intelligence, manipulative ability, strength, courage and passion, he could defeat anyone. Staked Elijah, defeated Silas, killed a number of people and vampires and werewolves and hybrids.

8 Elijah Mikaelson

Strongest vampire of all leaving the enhanced and serum ones.

He is awesome. He is an original and torture and blood are part of his life and it's amazing. He also has strong morals but when it comes to his family he would do anything to protect them: Kill, torture or even something worse than death. He is always is suit and he is a master on manipulation using sofisticated words.

He is universally respected which make him possibly the most powerful character of all

He is the best
I likes him very much
He should be at top 2

9 Stefan

Stefan is serious but with a good sense of humour and he is a little arrogant. He has a strong moral and but would do anything to save those he loves. He always thinks twice (except when his humanity is switched of) and he lets people make their own choices.

Has the most powerful weapon, his blood and elena's trust

Stefan has actually finished the transformation first thus making him stronger than damon, especially with his switch off.

He is the ripper guys he is more powerful

10 Caroline Forbes

She has Klaus down 4 her

Even klaus is powerless against her. enough said.

Caroline is a baby vampire shouldn't even be on the list

She is obssesive, a control freak and talks a lot. But she is lovable and she values friendship.

The Contenders

11 Alaric Saltzman

Decent Character, Strong enough to risk his life even thought he knows he could be killed at any moment x

He must be second as he is enhanced original.

He almost kill klaus

As an original vampire, he took owned Rebekah and Caroline. Then proceeded to take down Klaus, Damon, and Stefan.

12 Dahlia

Dahlia is very strong and powerful. Tho it was mean that she stole Freya

There is no one more stronger than Dahlia, neither in vampire diaries nor in the originals

Dahlia is supposed to be number one since she IS the strongest person in The Originals and is way stronger than Niklaus Mikaelson. Dahlia' seven stronger than Bonnie with Expression and we don't really know what she's FULLY capable of. A snap from her can wipe out an entire village.

She is the most powerful character, if Esther not there, she can kill all Originals family without problem ( the most powerful family )

13 Tyler Lockwood

A boring person, not fun to be around he is a control freak and he is mean

Tyler is so strong no one can beat this beast! Especially in the full moon he is so strong killing people who get in his way one bite and you are dead

I think tyler lockwood

He is basically the second ever hybrid he should b at least number 6 And ilisha should b number 3

14 Freya Mikaelson

She is so powerful and funny she can do a bazillion spells and can take on anyone she loves her family and she can do anything

A thousand year old witch (and a first born, who are supposed to be more powerful in this family), she demonstrated her great power more than once and it was said that she was a very powerful witch, but she's been pretty underused by the writers...

Mentored (enslaved? ) by Dahlia for a millennium, she deserves to be right up there in the top five.

I think she should be 2nd because she can take on klaus

15 Elena

Elena should be one of the top people one this list because through all of what her friends and family have been she's been the only one that seemed to be surviving the best. She is the most valuable person in the Vampire Diaries. What makes her so strong is the fact that shes been against the most powerful creatures as a mortal and a vampire and she is still the ultimate survivor. She's the best.

I think elena has a lot of potential and power and she never gives up and she is caring kind sweet never thinks of herself first or selfless like when she could of let matt die when Rebecca drove them off the bridge that's how she became vampire so I just truly love her and I hope nina hopes to make seasons of Vampire diaries

She has doppelganger blood didn't you think she would be in this list. She has been able to take care of herself, she fought with katerina and won the fight, she was able to bring caroline down to her knees and has the most powerful source of power, her blood

Elena is the main character. She can't die, that's her ultimate superpower... the gods watching over the show are protecting her. I'm only up to season four but I bet even if she dies she'll come back, not a scratch on her.

16 Hope Mikaelson

She should definitely be at the top of the list because of what she is. I mean, she's part vampire, part witch, and part werewolf. No one can beat THAT. I mean, think about the powers she has right now (without even triggering her vampire side! ) She has super strength (that of a vampire's, I'm assuming, we've seen that she's stronger than Rafael.), super agility (a power both vampires and werewolves have), super healing (vampire level), she's able to turn at will (a power only vampire/werewolf hybrids have), and she's far more powerful than any witch we've seen.

She should be number one she is the first of her kind. And lost both of her parents. She manages to make a living in the Salvatore School. And has to live with the fact that she may never have someone to teach her about herself.

She is all time powerful, born to the strongest being Klaus and because her grandmother is a witch,makes her the tribrid first of her kind.

She is one of the strongest witches of all time she's a mikaelson witch first born it makes her stronger then most of the other witches here she is a tribreed for God's sake

17 Kol Mikaelson

Kol is the wildest of the Mikaelson and most dangerous only person I got beating him is Elijah, klaus fears kol because kol is the only one who stands up to him

He has a great sense of humour and a smirky smile. He is arrogant, but also has a soft side.

He should be higher I think least top 10 also great actor stronger and older than most I seen above him

Kol is wild, reckless, sadistic, and Klaus is afraid of him. Enough said in my opinion.

18 Kai

He is a powerful witch, he can do illusions, cloaking spells, If he dies his witch relatives dies also, He obsorbed all the travel spell magic, which he got way powerful, He can always find a way to get back, like the time he was trapped in the magic prison, and he came back, he killed himself and came back, he got bitten and still had his powers, He died, but theory says he will be back, some clues that he can come back, He must have a better spot then 16..

We see almost nothing of the vampire Kai but he is good as witch.

I think he could easily kill them all

He is my fave character

19 Arcadius

Satan, Cade, Arcadius, The Devil, whatever you want to call him? he is a witch that helps people but moody people hated him and manipulated the people who like him, so they burned him on a cross but he channelled it to make hell.

Cade is the strongest character in the vampire diaries and the originals

Should be number 2 or 3 being the creator of hell itself. He is considered the first psychic but not the most powerful. The most powerful is Silas whom should be number one considering his mental powers can take down the original hybrid klaus Mikaelson

He is the devil, need I say more?

20 Damon Salvatore Damon Salvatore is a fictional character in The Vampire Diaries novel series. He is portrayed by Ian Somerhalder in the television series.

Damon Salvatore best vampire


Yeah He faught an Upgraded Original Vampire, Alaric

He's powerful in his mind
He can resist the siren "Sybil"
He was about to resist Kol's compulsion
He gets everything he wants, and no one can stop him if he's going to kill someone
Ahd he fought Alaric 'who was an invincible indestructible Original Vampire Hunter' after his flashback 'the first time he met Elena' and because of his love for her
Personally, may be a young vampire compared to the Originals but being strong doesn't mean, Strength physically, a vampire who's strong mentally can beat any vampire old or not

21 Mikael

As the original vampire that kills vampires and has enough power to kill the original hybrid, HE'S GOT TO BE TOUGH.

Klaus was only on the run for Mikael because he had fear before he was vampire, when he became one it was high-tent

He is the strongest, even able to overpower Klaus.

Wow 14 supposed be strongest of all oringnals even no Klaus killed him pretty easy bye surprise very strong only person make all siblings run

22 Davina Claire

POWERFUL, until she died and reborn but still has enough power to keep a vampire original on a bracelet.

Powerful queen

Is on bad witch

Only one who ever took down Niklaus on her own. (Other than Mikael). Even after she was back to regular witch, she was strong enough to severe Klaus's sireline. She even knocked out like, 30 vampires in one swish of her hand.

23 Marcel Gerard

He can't be beat

He is the Beast of the prophecy!

He almost decimated the entirety of the original family, was apart of the original family, single handedly took down the strixts. technically became the most powerful vampire/hybrid of all time technically. even had the new Orleans coven at his feet

He the strongest vampire he can’t be killed

24 The Hollow

I don't know what this is I just googled it so I thought it was powerful from what the bio said.

She is over powered and can beat anyone. The only reason she's not alive right now is because they separated her body parts so she won't possess hope. Any witch would fall to their knee's. Vampire's and werewolf's also.

She is probably the strongest and to be honest I like klaus the most but hollow and then maybe cade

25 Hayley Marshall

She is a original werewolf who has Klaus's baby what

Hayley Marshall is stronger than JENNA and the mojority of people on the list

Lol she should be ahead of Caroline and everyone else up to 10 she could take on old vampires with ease and even best mikeal as a werewolf pregnant oh and killed 4 witches.

She is quite cool and she is a Hybrid!
