Strongest Anime Characters of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Goku Goku Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. ...read more.

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

2 Vegeta Vegeta Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

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...

Yeah well remember those gods of destruction? lmao vegeta managed to beat the next god of destruction and SURVIVED an attack that killed him last time he used it. not to mention that he could eventually rival goku, a character who achieved a state NOT EVEN GODS can easily achieve and then mastered It in a couple of MINUTES

3 Whis (Dragon Ball) Whis (Dragon Ball) Whis is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

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

Yea, Whis should be #1, he's shown time and time again Goku AND Vegeta can't go up against Beerus, a god that Whis beats with one hit

4 Naruto Naruto Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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.

5 Saitama (OnePunch-Man) Saitama (OnePunch-Man) 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.

Ridiculously powerful.

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

Honestly Saitama is a gag anime and manga character his sole existence is to poke fun at anime character's who under go intense training procedure's to get stronger while saitama does a semi-Hard Training exercise in just 3 year's. If you watch film theorist episode for saitama you will see that if saitama give's it his all he can reset the universe a feat that currently as of this date zen-oh sama can only do. The closest we saw for the other anime character's on this list get to this power is whis with rewinding the space-time continuum. But that's only for 5 minute's saitama can literally reset space and time something none of the top 10 anime characters currently of me writing this can do. Now if zen-oh sama was put in this list then it's really up do debate whether saitama is the strongest.

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

Doesn't this guy win by default?

He destroys people in just one punch. - Sentimental

6 Luffy Luffy

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.

Luffy might not be the strongest cause one piece is not about destroying world or universe. Its simple but still far more amazing, funny and better than others. Other characters might have powers to destroy everything but luffy isn’t that kind of man who destroys everything. He is best in what he does. He is the best for me

7 Bills

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

Bills is stronger than Goku. He almost destroyed the whole universe just by clashing with Goku. Vegeta was beaten by Bills easily. Naruto can't even compete with Bills. Goku was also defeated by Bills.

Whis is stronger than Beerus, which is his actual name. If you'd paid attention to the anime, Whis tells Vegeta he is Beerus' teacher. Also, when the universes get erased, the angels (such as Whis and Vados who is ranked lower for no reason), are left behind. And lastly, Whis told Goku and everybody that in one universe (presumably one of the four omitted from participating in the Tournament of Power) "...there lives a mortal that even a God of Destruction cannot defeat. That God of Destruction happens to be stronger than Beerus-sama." So, Goku and Vegeta shouldn't be above Beerus, Whis, Vados, or Champa for starters. This list is just a list of who has the most fan-boys/girls. - ragigi

8 Madara Uchiha - Naruto Madara Uchiha - Naruto Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, ...read more.

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

I'm just a young girl who's watched quite a few anime, and let me say, Madara Uchiha is nearly impossible to beat. So impossible that the CREATOR of Naruto didn't even know how to kill him off, he was too extremely powerful.

Madara has impeccable strength, is ridiculously fast, a master of Taijutsu (hand to hand combat), abnormally huge chakra reserves, he's a UCHIHA (sharingan), the first being to obtain the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, awakens both Rinnegan, his Perfect Susano'o is gargantuan and it's blades can decapitate mountains just by SHEATHING them, can create Wood Style dragons, can summon Meteors, Dimension Clones you can't see but are literal copies of him and can do everything he can, Truth Seeking Orbs which can nullify any attack against him, he's immortal (i'm not even making that up), can fully regenerate instantly after being kicked in HALF, and can summon both the Nine (well, not anymore because Naruto is best friends with it but still) and Ten ...more

Guys, u all forgot about "Zeno The Lord Of Everything".

10 Ichigo Ichigo

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.

This is not my second most faviote chater but he like the smatertest songest peson in anmie

The Contenders

11 Beerus Beerus Beerus is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama. Beerus made his first appearance in the 2013 feature film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

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.

He already have come to the list at spot 5 as bills so why again as beerus.

Beerus defeated all gods of destruction in 1 battle, so he is better than goku

12 Kami Tenchi

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!

The only reason why he's low on the list is that his anime is pretty unpopular. No one in this whole list can beat him. He's god come on!

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?

Arguably the most powerful being in fiction.

13 Gogeta SSJ4

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

Ssj 4 Gogeta would tear every Anime character apart easily. His � - 100 Big bang Kamahameha is a beast! However this list is purely wrong. I am an ultra,super,big fan of dbz and goku isn't the strongest
Zeno is above all!

14 Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta

He is Awesome

This goes along with normal vegeta there is no sence in putting it separate so vegeta should get second he can destroy a whole galaxy, if broly did then vegeta can no doubt he has by far surpassed broly and vegeta ssj 4 is more then 400x stronger then normal ssj so yeah he gets second and well Goku number 1 and it don't matter in what state they r in.
End of story that's that

15 Light Yagami Light Yagami Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

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

Umm... I'm pretty sure that a character who can go multiple times the speed of light, and has the power to destroy an entire universe can draw enough power to kill him! You need to watch more anime then just Death Note - UltraExcalibur

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

I thought it wasn't fair adding Dragon Ball characters because they were so strong, but then I saw this. The guy can just write Goku's name down and he'll die. It's pretty overpowered. The only way he'd lose is if he doesn't know the name of the person he's killing.

16 Super Saiyan God Goku

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.

If goku is at the top of the list and is the most powerful character then shouldn't his strongest form be etleast next to his character.

17 Sasuke Uchiha Sasuke Uchiha Sasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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

OK... Lets be realistic. You should PROBABLY see at least 1 episode from all the series in the top 50 before voting. And while we are being realistic, the DBZ characters are stronger. But go look at pictures of them, and then say I'm wrong for them to be at a HUGE advantage on this list. Anyways, I'm supposed to be commenting about Sasuke and why he's the strongest on this, right...? Let's get to it. In the side story, Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (I've read all the Naruto released in stores and online in English, don't judge me), and even though Naruto has the ability to use 2 arms, Sasuke only can use one (His only arm :P) and he still seems to be stronger than Naruto. You truely have to finish the series, and see/watch all the side stories to be able to determine which one is stronger. With the Mankeykyou Sharingan and his Rinnegan (Don't rage at me if I spelled them wrong, I winged it) and the Susano'o, he can most likely, at full power, destroy Naruto. Mainly ...more

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

Sasuke is strong and all, but maybe if he didn't run away Naruto would've never grown that strong. And he would be just a weak-ass and be not so much. he has duck-but hair and he is evil! like I don't know why Naruto likes him and most girls in Naruto fall in love with a stupid person like him! he's strong enough to almost kill Naruto when he was a genin and even still almosclose to killing him later on. That's power but I still don't think that he should be bot of the top 50 strongest anime characters I would say he should be 60 or so. I don't care what u guys say about this but this is my opinion.

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

He has the arrogance of vegeta and the power of the most powerful anime characters of all anime so it shouldn't be this low

This one is a fusion only not the best anime character.

He is stronger than gogeta

Vegito is stronger than Gogeta. This is stated in the anime. Also, Goku and Vegeta fused to form both Vegito and Gogeta. How in Kami's name is Goku and Vegeta above their fused counterparts? Also, Goku outranks the Omni-King (literally god of the universe), Vados and Whis (Angels), and Beerus and Champs (Gods of destruction), and various other forms of SSJ Goku himself, even SSG Goku. This makes absolutely no sense.This list is a popularity contest absent of objectivity. As proof, lesser known animes with overwhelming OP characters aren't even listed. This isn't a list of the strongest, it's a vote for high school prom king and queen.

21 Natsu

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

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.

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.

He is stronger than an infinite source of magic and nearly on par with a being immune to magic

22 "Whitebeard" Edward Newgate (The One Piece)

In a show where blowing up a planet isn't practical he has the ability to destroy earth, if he was a DBZ character every time he attacked someone the planet would be left in a state of nothingness, I wish people would really think before they make these list. Luffy who is fifth on this list and that's questionable felt the need to prove him self to this man like come on people.

He held the title of the strongest man in the world, punching so hard that he cracked the air. His punches make can make earthquakes and cause tsunamis. The entire world was terrified when he was on the move. With the power he has he can be a planet destroyer. Simply his name was good enough to deter even the world government, the world was his for the taking.

Whitebeard would lose cannot top strongest

Yes he is so strong and badass. However I'm pretty sure the current yonko could beat him. Enemies keep getting stronger so it makes sense to have the other yonko that were introduced after him be even stronger. But we'll see. - lilyflower

23 Alucard Alucard Alucard is a fictional character and the protagonist and antihero of the Hellsing manga and anime series created by Kouta Hirano.

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

24 Lord of Nightmares (Slayers)

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

Because everything in the four worlds is made from her essence and according to her own words “my mind is my power and my power is my mind, by summoning my power you are in fact summoning me” that implies that she can control her energy even when it is not connected to her. though she exists outside the normal physical worlds (as a golden raging ocean of pure chaos) if she were to take physical form she could manipulated everything around her including people and kill them by atomizing them with nothing more than a finger twitch

25 Kaguya Ootsutsuki

Yo did you guys forget kaguya the sage of the six paths mom do you know how strong she is she can defeat goku with just a finger

No she can't. Best Naruto feat so far is destroying the moon, and Master Roshi was able to do that in the early Dragon Ball - Goku02

I was thinking about voting for Saitama but if Kaguya get serious there's no chance for anyone to survive. I mean she has endless chakra, she can teleport anyone and anything to another dimension and don't have to even move a finger. Yeah, I know how overpowered are Saitama, Whis and Goku but at this level it's not even about pure strength, destroying universe with one hit or something. She fully absorbs chakra so no energy attacks are working on her, she can change dimensions or open portals just in front of anyone's face. We actually haven't seen her power when she really tries hard, since she was just playing around (Naruto plot armor) and got sealed.

She is ten times stronger than Naruto, and three times stronger than Goku. She can destroy the world and if she wanted she could turn on the endless tsukuyomi and put him to sleep. She is one with nature and can just beat up Goku like that

Naruto who's 4th in this list couldn't stand a chance against her alone and the sage of six paths said she's the strongest

Love how the top 40 is like 20 dbz characters but basically the top 100 should be dbz characters lol

Frieza became stronger with golden frieza - ikerevievs

Frieza is the strongest and best villian in anime history. I just love how about 15 dbz characters are in the top 40, they so deserve it cause all dbz characters are the strongest

Watch the first ten minutes of the first episode of elfen lied. Lucy beats all. Sit down Goku.

It would be an insult for Trunks to lower himself to Naruto's level.; Pan can take care of Naruto.

He can beat naruto my vote

So trunks cannot defeat naruto you think. Hmm...i pitty you mortals

I disagree pan...... pan... they had trouble with a couple of robots... naruto has the power to devastate planets he is pretty close to dbz level so no one should be dissing

31 Itachi Uchiha Itachi Uchiha Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Itachi is so much stronger that at least sasuke uchiha maybe he lost in the battle but he did not wanted to kill or even hurt sasuke and also he was sick I think that he is the strongest of all and he is the coolest one that is for sure

Technically, Sasuke was only "stronger" than Itachi just because the Weasel of Glory himself was already dying of a disease and he willed his idiot emo brother to land the killing blow on him.

So yeah.

But I can't disagree against the fact that Porcupine-Overlord Uchiha is either stronger or equally strong as he is.

Genius who could defeat people with his intellect and ocular powers

When he wa salive he was stronger than Sasuke, but now Naruto and Sasuke are on another level. - lilyflower

32 Omni King - Dragon Ball Z

This guy destroyed future trunks time line and acted as if nothing happened. No character existed by far who can defeat this guy. Once he was in bad mood so he destroyed 6 universe with 1 second and didn't give a damn about it.

Even Whis bows down before him it is even stated that everyone is scared of him

Just because of bad mood he destroyed 6 universes. Now that's some serious feat.

Of course zeno can destroy all the angels, goku and all of dbs easy why do people vote this at 32?

33 Killua Zoldyck Killua Zoldyck

He should definitely be ranked higher than 99. After being tortured and trained to become an assassin ever since he was a baby, he can kill people without even breaking a sweat. Especially with godspeed, Killua is basically invincible.

He can control every part of his body and he is still a child he has potential to be in the top five if the anime did not end so quickly - Jamal10

He is only a child and I am sure pretty much in the top 10 would have problems dealing with a guy like him.

Well he is a assassin and assassin are flipping cool and tough if I rank he 1 out 20 he be 100000000 yea. also I ship killua + gon cause there best friends and so cute together

Hell no! How is this guy not above Natsu how is he not the strongest character I mean he can stop time easily without using magic energy he can easily defeated the Ultimate warriors in legend Goku and Bills

With the ability to kill everything around him at will, plus the best-known (and unknown) defensive magics, he can't lose really, unless you can survive death (lovely paradox)

How come he is 28 when he can just kill all living things around him with a blink of an eye. He is even far stronger than Natsu and plus he is now 400+ years of age, he is immortal guys.

He should be one place below natsu and natsu should be at seventh place I mean come on and acnilogia should be above natsu vause natsu didn't technecly deafet acnilogia by himself he needed everyones magic so why are we all focusing on proginists here

Shame no one has seen this show or he would easily be number one. Allow me to explain this guys powers.
1. He can move ridiculously fast
2. Can survive literally anything
3. Can kill anything and everything in exactly one punch

And the last one is literal (as in only one punch). Super beings: one punch, monsters: one punch, Skyscraper tall monsters capable of taking out a whole city in seconds: ONE PUNCH. Although Goku can destroy a planet with a massive energy ball this guy could destroy a planet with one punch.

He trained so hard he became bald plus all it takes is just one punch

He was literally made as the man who can "one punch" anything! How is he not the strongest?

He's awesome but it's sad that he dies at the end

42 Anti Spiral

Anti Spiral is embodiment of negative cosmic energy of the universe. Almost any other characters on the list will be wrecked without hope against an entity that can whip smash galaxies and fire it as destructive blast

Definitely one of the strongest anime characters out there goku would maybe last 1 minute

43 Phoenix Ikki - Saint Seiya

The strongest of the bronze saints in my opinion. He's like the Vegeta of Saint Seiya - starts as a villain, then turns into an anti-hero, does whatever he wants and when he wants, and always appears at the right time to save his friends showing that he has a good heart. He can manipulate an opponent's mind with a touch of a simple punch and torture it with illusions and nightmares. His Hoyoku Tensho can easily defeat his opponents with sheer strenght and pure flames that even the Gold saints and Gods felt it. Fire users like Natsu can't even compare to the likes of Ikki. Hell, if Ikki had a God cloth then he would've probably defeat Hades, doing more damage than Seiya.

44 Caped Baldy Caped Baldy 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.

He can destroy half of the universe with a single punch simply because the fists only go in one direction, if this were not so he could end it all in a single punch.

He always wins with one punch

He is already mentioned three times in this list

His name.

Caped baldy.

Not even watched all of one punch man yet.

He will be on par with goku with his balance breaker and would surely surpass him and kill everyone else on the list with his juggernaut drive

Issei is the controller of the Red Dragon and has the power to kill even Gods - Nikorasu-san

He could beat anyone including goku

He is the red dragon of domination who can surpass "God" at will! Do you get the picture?

46 Eucliwood Hellscythe Eucliwood Hellscythe

She Should be in the Top 10. She Can Kill Anyone with a Single word. She is also the Queen of the Underworld. Any Anime Character that hears her say the word ("DIE") Literally Dies

She can even kill immortal people with just one word! If she doesn't deserve place number 1 I don't know, what you understand if you say "powerful"

This is just too obvious that she is the strongest because its just a word and universe can be destroyed

She can destroy anyone just by saying one word people! One word! Euicliwood Hellscythe should be number 1 and Lucy (Elfen Lied) should be number 2! How is Goku above these two?! They would both kick Goku's ass! Euicliwood is still the strongest though in a battle between her and Lucy she would just say die before Lucy could do anything and Lucy would be dead! Euicliwood is the strongest anime character ever!

47 Najimi Ajimu - Medaka Box

She literally has more powers than there are people on Earth. She existed before the universe and tanked the Big Bang. She also casually blows up stars by pointing at them and can only be defeated by the author. Saitama should be first and Ajimu should be second. Seriously, she wouldn't break a sweat wiping the floor with Goku.

This person is just too strong
Goku doesn't stand a chance against the immortal ajimu she is just way too strong
She has 12,858,051,967,633,863 skills with some of them being super OP stuff like control over most elements and a bunch of cheat skills

Lolol. She can probably kill everyone in this list. - ilar9118

Ajimu's ridiculously strong! Onde off her Abnormalities make her superior than ver opponent, another males defense impossible, she van "become God", " what she says happens", make defense impossible, and casually delete things from existance, having weaknesses also is not a risk for her, as she can create more skills. Not that she needs more, as she hás 12 quadrillion off them... Goku stands no chance
