Strongest Anime Characters of All TimeTheo98
The Top Ten
Goku is by far the Strongest Character in Anime History. Goku has a thirst for fighting and fights for the justice of his friends and family. Naruto is powerful, but Goku would come out on top. That's why he's Goku. Because Goku always shines through in the end. Even when the odds are stacked against his favor.
Goku by far is the greatest and strongest, his determination and courage to overcome any odds is unparalled, protagonists of other animes are like cute little babies in front of him without disrespecting any of them, he has such incredible transformations! Any damn character cannot last more than ssj3! Unless he is outsmarted and that in the extrafighting sense!
Nah... Light Yagami? Beating Goku? Are you sure about that? Goku isn't even his name, and let's see Light tries to kill an alien. - Goku02
Goku is the strongest anime character, has the most strongest of transformations in all of anime.
He's by far the greatest anime character still standing among others such as, ichigo, Naruto, monkey d luffy and many others, some might believe that just because some of popular anime characters can do things like rip dimensions, cut mountains and take down meteorites that Goku is not strong enough, but all this is just child's play for Goku, he in his ssj form alone could have taken down Naruto's nine tailed fox, in his ssj2 he could have taken down ichigo in his strongest form. Goku of today is a god, faster than the anime characters such as ichigo, Naruto, sasuke, madara, itachi, aizen and many others combined, now the strongest in 5 worlds, such as Bleach, Naruto, One piece, Hunter X Hunter and Fairy tail, among these 5 animes, there's none who can stand up to Goku. Some people are just too stubborn to except that Goku is the strongest, Naruto this Naruto that, fairy tale this ...more

Vegeta is barely weaker than Goku! How is he lower than Naruto, while Goku is higher? I think that all dbz characters, besides the really weak ones, are stronger than all of the other anime characters because dbz has a ridiculously endless amount of possibilities in terms of what physics can be denied and how powerful each character can get. Vegeta should be just one space away from Goku, wherever in the ranks Goku may end up
Vegeta would destroy Naruto, he is the 2nd strongest anime character just inches away from Goku, so vote properly!
Yes Goku is stronger than vegeta but barley, vegeta is the only one who even has a chance at equaling or surpassing Goku, and he has more then once... vegeta is stronger than Naruto by far so he at least deserves 2...
Vegeta can come up top if he surpaces gokuV 258 Comments
Naruto is a monster when it comes to pure strength. In his own respective universe he is stronger then anyone else. Such as Sasuke, who destroyed a meteor with one hit. Madara, who took down an entire army using only physical attacks. Itachi Uchiha, who torture summon for 3 days and 3 nights in the time of a second. Rock Lee, who was able to hit and then hit again, without even touching the ground in a blur for many minutes. Which means that he could basically float above the ground using speed alone and hit his enemies for several minutes. Garra, who created a sand shield that took a nuke the size of a city. Minato, Naruto's dad who was able to teleport to a mark that he had put on somebody before they had been killed. Meaning that after marking summon they would get a permanent tattoo that the marker could teleport to. Wheras Goku and all the DBZ characters can only teleport when concentrating, unlike Naruto. Nagato, who brought a whole city back to life, even after using up almost ...more
This is completely false, and for many reasons, you seem to forget the fact that Naruto is human, sure he has kurama, but he is still human, and thus, held back by human limitations, I can think of many different characters you could add to this list that are much more deserving, and even change the order of the characters on this list, For example, ichigo, according to bleach lore, he is a shinigami, the Japanese death gods, thus able to exceed human limitations drastically, alucards much more deserving as well, he has a familiar army of over 4 million or so according to the series, along with a very large blood pool that heals any wounds that would otherwise kill any mortal, and even some super human races, sephiroths another, though originally born human, he was injected with the DNA of a god like being known as jenova, granting him extreme power, including the life stream, the jenova cell, and super nova, an attack that would otherwise be considered borderline galaxy busting. - Sephiroth147
I think Naruto should be number 1, no offense to the DBZ fans, but Goku isn't even human and most of the characters in the DBZ Series are way too overpowered. I like the DBZ Series I really do, but the characters just keep getting even more and more powerful. Back to Naruto, Naruto is considered one, if not, the most powerful character in his Universe. He's really strong even when he doesn't use ninjutsu or his powers. I know he can't blow up planets, but he is human, and therefore has flaws. This is only in my opinion, but if you get it through your head that most of the people in the top 10 of this list are either from DBZ or humans that have powers that make them strong. Naruto actually worked for his power and very rarely uses Kurama's power unless he needs to. Besides, he survived an attack that could slice the moon in half without a single scratch! I don't care what anyone says since this is MY opinion. Naruto will always be one of the strongest characters in my eyes.
Naruto is stronger than vegeta and can go head to head with gokuV 619 Comments
Not even two ssj god super saiyans would be able to kill him. Guess what? He can go back in time. Naruto survives an attack that slices the moon in half without a scratch? Whis can blow up the entire universe and rewind time like he never did it at all. He is not only stronger than Goku, Vegeta, and Lord Bills, but is probably the fastest, most experienced, and all around greatest warrior in the universe. I don't care how strong Naruto is, or what he can do. If he can't destroy the entire universe with one blow, (Which won't matter because Whis can just rewind time) he can't defeat Goku, Vegeta, Bills, or Whis. Whis is probably even stronger than superman because of this. Sun gives superman power? Just blow it up. Even if superman can fly from one end of the universe to the other, Goku still has instant transmission. Yet, how is it that Goku still couldn't defeat Lord Bills? If Bills only used 70% of his strength in that fight, and Whis is stronger that Bills, (From what Akira has ...more
Whis should be #1. Bills should be #2. This reason is because bills proved that he was stronger than Goku in the movie. Bills said that whis is his teacher so that's why whis should be number one. Goku vegeta vegito gogeta name em all, they won't tap whis at all. In the movie bills and Goku were the only fighters. Whis was just wandering around looking for food. If he fought, Goku would've possibly died. He let bills do all the work. If king Kai and all the other kai are afraid of bills, the only reason is because bills is the god of destruction. They weren't scared of whis because they know bills is going to do everything. Bills also said the strongest person he's fought was whis. Not Goku. Goku was the second strongest. That is why whis is number one, bills number two, Goku number three.
The strongest anime character to not fight. Akira himself said that goku is a 6, bills is a 10 and Whis is a 15. He chopped bills down with one blow. Granted he should make more appearances before he goes up higher. But, since this is most powerfulest he takes it
Is this even a question? if beerus is a 10 and whis is a 15 (toriyama stated this) and beerus can easily destroy a universe,whis could probably do 2 or maybe 3! - 100yeartimeskipgokuV 142 Comments
Bills is stronger than goku.
Bills defeated ssj3 Goku with ease. how is Goku supposed to be the strongest character in dbz? There's whiz too. whis is the teacher of bills. and bills only used up 70% of his power fighting 100% of ssj GOD (Goku).. Then so whis can kill ssj GOD (Goku) with ease :3
Honestly for all the dbz fans bills is a Canon character. Akira himself wrote the storyline and everything for battle of the gods. So, a character who flicked super saiyan 3 and shut him down with ease.

Never not once has Luffy disappointed me with what he is capable of, with either strength, speed, or strategy. Luffy has all of those when it comes to fighting. Have any of you seen how many enemies he's fought. Eventually, he might as well fight everyone on this list, except Goku, Goku can kill every main character with ease. Even if it was everyone vs. Goku
Luffy can do anything he sets his mind to. It also helps that his mind is extremely simple and unchangeable. Any way you look at it, Luffy is remarkable, amazing, stretchy, and all the other awesome words that describe him including awesome.
Luffy is not the most strongest character right now however he will be the most powerful character in the future and you know that the anime one piece it's not all about strongest characters the most important thing about the one piece is their stories One piece also have amazing soundtrack, One piece is the best anime ever one piece has the most characters one piece ass more than 700 episode one piece is the best anime.
That's a lie luffy can defeat goku and saitama should be the #1 because in one punch he destroys every thing and never runs out of stamina and has ridiculously amount of speed. and naruto has a chance of defeating goku.V 159 Comments
Not favorite anime, not favorite character, but literally the strongest of any anime in my opinion
His Brutal philosophy on manipulating people! He molds Obito, whose the nicest kid growing up, helping the elderly and stuff. He states it's the easiest to control those types of people because once they see hell in the world, they immediately fall into darkness. And if they don't fall, Madara will simply create the Darkness in their hearts for them. Truly Evil, merciless, and unstoppable. He only died because God's son killed him, otherwise he'd have ruled the world. - Awpingyou
Madara should obviously be at the top, not only does he have extrordinary powers, but also the fact he cheated death easily and even in the latest episodes (episode 393 or higher) he beats all tailed beasts by literally looking at them and saying a few words. He is even unbeatable and far more stronger as a living person, the fact he is soloing a war is enough, along with being able to summon meteors that can take out a city and wiping out 2 mountains with just unsheathing "one" sword.
Madara should have been in top fiveV 145 Comments
I'm sorry but really Ichigo could mop the floor with Luffy really even Natsu could burn Luffy and Ichigo could easily beat him in speed and strength. I mean the guy Cut a mountain in half with a swing seriously. Ichigo deserves 3rd he might even deserve 2nd if his new power and swords are strong enough.
Ichigo can travel slightly faster than the speed of light, a feat that is near impossible for any other anime character to accomplish. He is going to be stronger than Naruto if he circles him over and over like he did with Byakuya in the "Save Rukia" ark. Not to mention this was when he was arguably at his weakest of his Soul Reaper abilities. He has massively improved his abilities as a Soul Reaper and a Visored since then, so it is not hard to believe that he can trump Naruto and Luffy. Despite all this power, I would say that he cannot defeat Goku or Vegeta because they can travel many, many times faster than the speed of light while Ichigo can only travel slightly faster than light. Not only this, but the difference between the massive amounts of Ki in Goku and Vegeta, and Ichigo's energy and stamina is a massive gap. As much as I love Bleach, I cannot see a way of Ichigo winning against either of them. This is why Ichigo MUST be put fourth, below Vegeta, Goku and Saitama (Weakest ...more
For the Big Three, Naruto, Bleach and One piece, they are all on different playing fields. Naruto lives in a world of superhumans and is greatest fight was against a practically omnipresent God who could tear through reality itself, but he had help. Luffy has faced beings that have called themselves gods and won, but their power pales in comparison to even the captains of Bleach. Let's put it this way, by the end of the Winter war, Aizen was nigh immortal, reaching omnipresent levels of power and ichigo was able to stop him with on swing of his sword. Yes that strike nearly killed him and drained his power to the point here he couldn't even see spirits for years but still, ONE STRIKE! Naruto's ninjas can move at speed where all you see is a blur, in bleach so characters don't even blur, they just disappear. They can also fly.
He should be 4V 173 Comments
Math time: When a Meteor was about to hit a city and thus wipe it out and the surrounding few cities as well. It would be classified as a 350m wide Meteor. Now since it's breakthrough from the atmosphere was to the point of near impact it suffered no burnout what so ever it can be determined that it was actually made out of titanium (yay lots of money, boo lots of pain). With its current mass and size it would have a force of nearly... 2,000,000 megatons. Which big woop, other anime heroes can lift this easy. The thing that makes it impressive however, is Saitama, punched through the entire meteor in 1.6seconds with enough force to completely shatter it to pieces. Which mathematically wise with given resistance and mass of the meteor and its force would mean.. That Saitama hit the meteor with a force of... don don don! nearly 1.6 Sextillion megatons of force effortlessly.
Keep in mind this was an early version and weaker version of Saitama. If he ...more
Um... For anyone who's actually watched this show, I don't really think I need to explain. And for those of you have haven't, I HIGHLY suggest watching (or reading the manga, both are AMAZING) it. I haven't seen Dragon Ball, I'm not saying he should rank higher than them, but if you look at the comment right below this one, (at least I think it's below this one) with shared that when at his strongest, he's able to punch with 1.6 Septillion megatons of force (with one punch, mind you), I have to say that he's basically invincible. And he's pretty awesome.
But then again, I have to wonder about this: lets say Saitama is in Naruto's world, and they're fighting. I honestly can't predict (it's not that it's impossible, there are just to many factors to add up that the possible outcome is nearly endless) who would win. For instance, maybe, by some odd intervention, Yato could dimensionally jump in, accidentally bump into Saitama, and Saitama could trip on a rock, falling flat on his ...more
He is the strongest per definition. He can defeat anybody with only ONE punch, while being invincible at the same time. Son Goku? Saitama defeats him with ONE punch... Alucard? He can regenerate all he want just to be destroyed to crisp in ONE punch. Nothing can hurt him...
He has different weaknesses than any other: How to pay the bills? Why doesn't anybody know him or better said why isn't he famous? And: How to avoid the awful bore to win every fight in just ONE punch?
He usually isn't even serious while fighting and fools around most of the time, while being able to destroy the whole planet with only ONE simple punch...
Saitama is strong put there was a person that he didn't beat with one punch - germshep24
I promise you! SAITAMA IS THE MOST POWERFUL ANIME CHARACTER than anyone does.. BUT no one believes it!V 401 Comments
This is basically a popularity contest. If people were well versed in anime, they would know that only the omnipotent characters are left in the top 10 spots. Kami Tenchi would make every anime character disappear with absolutely no effort, and that's probably an understatement to what he can REALLY do!
Regardless the writing of other overpowered characters, this is the anime version of The One Over All from the Marvel Universe. He is an at least 23 dimensional being who created the universe and all its contents.
Argue as you may that the canonical Tenchi Masaki hasn't come into his real power, his existence as both the extremely powerful human and the Multiverse creating Omnibeing are one and the same. Father, son, and holy spirit like. The Goddesses responsible for our own existence are far below his power and knowledge, so how can one Saiyan really compete?
This reason number 5,323 why TheTopTens.com is one of the least reliable sources ever. Kami Tenchi outclasses not only everyone on this list, but everyone in Anime ever. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, ominiscient, and omniversal. The only character in fiction that could possibly stand a chance against him is The One Above All from the Marvel Universe. Kami Tenchi easily ranks number 1. The Kamehameha can't affect him, no Ninjutsu can hurt him, Getsuga can't pierce him. Nobody stands a chance against him. He is a massive multi-reality buster. No one from DBZ, Marvel, DC, the Holy Shounen Trinity, or the rest of fiction can beat him. He is God in ever intents and purposes of the word.
Goku should worship him.V 51 Comments
Not very strong
The whole reason Natsu is so strong is because he brings up his power to surpass that of his opponents (Like what he did with Sting and Rogue), so I guess in a way he can't be defeated
Nasty deserves to be ten at least he can beat a wizard saint and he can now use fire dragon secret art which beat sting and rogue the twin dragon slayers and beat their twin powerful move without breaking a sweat like come on natsu is amazingly strong he may be stupid but he always finds a way to win and plus if he is a dragon slayer if he is losing he can just eat fire (or lightening) BAM! Back to full power.
Natsu is the most enduring anime character able to be hit repetitively and still get up stronger than ever and he has a strong melee power, good speed, with an awesome range with his fire dragon roar. Another factor, he is a dragon. I understand Goku is powerful and all but this is Natsu Dragneel. He can easily replenish his magic by eating fire or lightning so he would be back in tip top shape. Natsu deserves at least top ten.
Natsu is to strong especially in the manga and at the level he is at right now I feel like he should be where luffy spot in or a little lowerV 189 Comments
Goku alone is the most powerful being in anime history, so it makes sense that him + someone nearly on par with him combined who can still go super-saiyan is pretty much unbeatable. And as to someone like Naruto beating him, Naruto got a moon-destroying blast and was fine- Goku was hit with Super Buu's ultimate attack- an attack that has laid waste to countless galaxies. And he lived. Do not reply to this comment unless you agree with me, because I ain't comin' back.
Everyone believes that Goku and vegeta are stronger than gogeta? Do you realise that gogeta is Goku and vegeta merged together with fusion, so it's impossible that Goku and vegeta are stronger. This voting is not about which anime character you like, but which is the strongest.
What is dis? Go great is vegeta and goku in fusion dis is weird. This is number 1 guys
Gogeta ssj4 would stomp everyone on this listV 45 Comments

Goku super saiyan god not strongest anime all people bills beat ssj god Goku sage of the six paths strongest anime all people at the moment defeated most powerful demon sage of the six paths never loss
I'm not sure about Yamcha ( though he can bust several moons at least, even Master Roshi destroyed the moon without using his full power ), but Krillin would beat Sage of Six Paths for sure. - Goku02
Ok. We know that Goku is the strongest character in the anime universe, being able to alter reality and cross dimensions (I mean, look at the movie Fusion Reborn) but don't you think his strongest form would be the strongest of all people? Goku, when in this state, is able to keep up with gods. I'm talking about omnipotent beings of life. In the Dragon Ball-verse, they're so powerful there are only about 20 of them in EXISTANCE. AND Goku in this form could exhaust one of these universe-crumbling gods to the point where they can only crack small pebbles. SSJG Goku wins, hands down, good day sir.
He could destroy planet
He can do more than that. Frieza was a planet buster during the planet vegeta many years before the show down with Goku. Imagine what Frieza could've done then. And Goku is far passed Frieza now.
New but powerfulV 20 Comments
Gohan is the strongest character in the whole of DragonBallZ before the Battle of Gods Arc. Vegeta himself stated that none can rival the amount of potential he possesses. He quit fighting when he settled down with his family but if he were to train, no on could challenge his power except the highest of gods. But his character prevents him from being a fighter, because he doesn't want to fight like his father Goku. He will only do so when backed into a corner like with Cell. He has one of the greatest fights in anime history with Cell and defeat him when he was only 11. He should be 5 on this list.
Yeah, it's a pity that Gohan's enormous potential is being wasted. - GuessMyName
(Fact) Gohan is actually stronger than Goku especially when he gets angry.
Gohan is actually the strongest non-fused character by the end of DBZ. - Goku02
If he didn't stop fighting, then he probably would have been the strongest character in show.V 32 Comments
Alucard can't be killed unless he wills it to be so.. He said himself only a man can kill a monster, and I don't think saiyans are humans. The only way someone could kill Alucard is if he is really that bored and believes that a specific human is worthy of killing him. So him being omnipresent and nowhere at all there is no way for him to be killed. So anything non human immediately loses. Perhaps not immediately.. It would take Goku blowing up a lot of dimensions and destroying alucard a lot of times before he would run out of energy enough for Alucard to either eat him or put a bullet in his head. The best Candidates are either Naruto or Ichigo in my opinion. I assume Alucard would find Naruto too childish though and tell him he's foolish before killing him. Ichigo however has. Higher chances, he is willing to do what needs to be done to save people and is a little more grown up than Naruto. However I'm not sure if Ichigo can still be considered "human" so..
They need rename the list to 'favorite anime characters' cause Alucard should not be this low on the list. Watch and read Hellsing and you will understand how ridiculous this list is. I mean Luffy is cool, he is one of my favorite characters but in terms of power and ability he is not that strong when compared to other anime characters.
HE can't BE KILLED BY ANYONE ON THIS LIST HE LITERALLY can't EVERYONE ON THIS LIST isn't HUMAN - goku vegeta whis gogeta gohan vados = alien naruto=godlike tailed beast being all the others either have unworthy motives or aren't human the only person I would say even has the most tiny chance is natsu because in the earlier story arcs he is quite innocent but not childish I think his arguments with erza and gray would put him out
Alucard may not be as know as everyone in the top ten but he is for sure the most strong characterV 36 Comments
Um., like the creator of the world. Real name being lucifer. Would stomp most other characters on the list
The strongest anime charactar ever she can make every character on this list disappear aside from Kami Tenchi
I read the list going down and agreed with most of it until I saw Light Yagami here. I laughed at first sight thinking, "This guy is so average compared to all the superpowered freaks above". But then I started realizing just how powerful Light really is. This is for the strongest anime character right? I am not going to go in the direction that strength comes from the mind. No, I am going to say that Light here can simply right a name down and that person is dead... over... finished. As much as I respect the other people on this list, they have their drawbacks. (For example, taking 5 episodes to draw up power; sacrificing himself in battle for his friends which is nice, but he would lose the battle which is the whole point of this poll. ) Overall, Light has the easiest chance of winning. Write the name and stay hidden for 30 seconds. No one can draw up enough power in 30 seconds which is what the animes have proven to us. it's kinda silly really. But I stick with this. Much respect ...more
Most people have been commenting on how most of these other characters would just kill Light before he could write their names down. The one problem I have with this is that Light would never be writing their name right in front of them. No, he would be on the other side of the world watching the events unfold from his television while sitting in his room eating potato chips. The other person wouldn't even know what's happening, they would just suddenly get a heart attack and die. Also, very few people even know what the death note is and how it works. So even if Light was having to write their name in front of them they would probably just sit around wondering what in the world he is doing. Although I do agree that he wouldn't be able to kill Goku, not because Goku is Saiyan but because Goku isn't technically his real name.
In the list so far its all about strength but in terms of mind light beats all other his power is conditional yes that it can only be used if name and face is know also the 30 seconds time gap and also be able to write the name like in an open battle field imagine light standing in front of Goku trying to write his name like Goku be like kamehameha before he could even write his name so its conditional light isn't the strongest but deserves to be higher
Death note= death. No more is needed to be saidV 58 Comments
Whilst I think the day will come where Goku may surpass Beerus/Whis. He hasnt done so yet. Never mind the fact Beerus can blow up a planet just by tapping his finger... If you watch the last Dragon ball Movie, He fights Goku in super saiyan god form and even after they finish fighting Whis talks to him about how he hasn't had to use that much of his power in a long time (that much power, not being more than half of his true power) We haven't seen the full extent of Beerus' powers ourselves and yet every other character on the show is scared of him! I love Goku, he and Vegeta are my favorite characters by far. But if we are talking strongest Anime character... Beerus and Whis should be first and second.
Okay the Naruto characters are so mixed up in order. Sasuke and Naruto are equal in strength, but it is okay for Naruto to be higher on the list because he is the character. However not that far ahead. Secondly Sasuke killed Itachi so he should be higher on the list. Also Sasuke should be higher than Obito because who knows how strong he would be without Madara. Lastly Madara should be higher than both Naruto and sasuke because neither of them could beat madara.
Sasuke is strong no matter what his dream is just like Naruto becoming hokage so he tries not to give up
Sasuke is not stronger than itachi because itachi was holding back at that time I know he was holding back because itachi had susanoo he could have finish sasuke off but didn't because itachi loved sasuke as the last member of the uchiha family
Don't get me wrong sasuke itachi and kakashi are my two favorite characters in the Naruto story. Just to let all you sasuke fan girls know
If itachi wanted sasuke to die he would've released his full susanoo but instead he tried to scare sasuke and put up a front so that way sasuke would feel like itachi was trying. I'm pretty sure even sasuke wouldn't have like a full on one sided fight. He thought he knew itachi well enough to gauge his strength by the moves he displayed. however itachi would've won that fight in on hit with the totsuka blade.
He should be at the top...his genjustu can even defeat goku and also he has infinite tukosyumi...he should be at the tooV 104 Comments
