Top Ten Strongest Anime/Manga Characters


The Top Ten

1 Goku - Dragon Ball Z Goku - Dragon Ball Z 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.

In my opinion Goku is stronger mainly because of his ability to adapt to any fight just how when he transformed to Super Saiyan God his body adapted to the experience allowing him to continue to fight at that power and now since Goku has ascended beyond Super Saiyan God to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan he had quadrupled his power and endurance while increasing his ability to adapt to attacks and enemy encounters Goku is way too kind hearted to murder someone without getting a good fight in first so one punch man would definitely be a threat but say if Goku dies and One Punch man wins he has the dragon balls to be wished back twice as strong as he was before be lost and he had fusion with vegeta which can create Gogeta or Vegito who are even at base form invincible and so overpowered to the point of moving faster than the speed of light time 100 Gogeta can fight without lifting a finger or so it appears and Vegito is playful but Unstoppable and if one punch man is as strong as you say ...more

He may struggle with the big foes that keep on popping up and he may be pitiful compared to them but he'll always step up and train himself. He doesn't give up. And DBZ probably has the most formidable enemies because each one makes a long impact, such as Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. They never last for a short while and it's even more exciting when it takes a lot to defeat them. Goku can do so much without breaking a sweat. I mean, he can destroy the moon with a simple Ki blast, like Piccolo did in the early episodes of DBZ. Even if somebody does surpass him at some point, he'll beat them no matter how long it takes because his power is limitless.

Goku wins because he moves faster than time, can punch so hard the whole universe would collapse on its self, he could kill the human race just by screaming since his aura has its own centre of gravity, he has the powers of a god, can bench lift our solar system of planets and he has no limitations of power, whenever a saiyan gets injured it comes back almost double the strength, I would like to see anybody in existence try to defeat goku it would be pointless

Yes! Goku has rivaled the strongest person (Jiren) in the tournament of power and he can unlock Ultra instinct! And he’s about to become even more stronger throughout DBS

2 One Punch Man - OnePunch-Man

He beats the strongest people in his respective manga with ease, the people he has beaten have powers which could be compared to that of Gokus and Naruto and even edward newgate, yet he has never even gone fully serious. some have referred to his power as being unfair as it basically makes him a god among monsters

The strongest man alive... And can finish off fights with one punch...

First of all he can beat almost everything with just 1 single punch and this one even isn't a serious one and he was also able to rub out a whole mountain that really was further away just with the moving air of one of his normal punches while other strong characters need crazy powers to destroy some objects.

So if you think of Saitama he could be able to smash the earth with a single punch if we will take it serious.

I just want the hero association to hurry up and give him "onepunch-man" as a nickname, instead of this "bald-cape" crap.

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

Vegetal should be 2nd because even if he is weaker than Goku, he shot up right to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan without becoming Super Saiyan 3 or Super Saiyan God. He didn't even need Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Goku to join hands and go through the procedure of becoming SSJG. He doesn't depend on others and focuses on achieving new stages of Super Saiyan by himself and that's what makes him so powerful.

Yes I belive he should be number 2 just for the same reasons as Goku is number 1

Vegeta is my all time favorite character, but should be number 2 instead of 5 on here. Only goku is stronger

At the same level as Goku

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

I can denied that Goku is strong and Naruto reserves the second place. but honestly Naruto is the best

Naruto is awesome. He got nine tails, sage mode, sage of six paths and he can also borrow power from the tailed beasts anytime he wants and whenever he wants. Besides he became hokage and even surpassed his father.

I agree Naruto doesn't stand a chance against Goku but he can prove to be a good opponent but I can surely say he can beat the crap out of everyone whether it is ichigo, luffy because he harness more abilities his teleportation techniques along with the power of tailed beast is unmatched

I really think that Naruto should at least be 3rd place because he is strong he survived a blast that slice the whole moon in half in the last movie!

5 Whis - Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods Whis - Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods

Whis is stronger than Goku and Vegeta which basically means he's the strongest on this list and should be #1

Krillin would Destroy Naruto, Luffy yes, EVEN MADARA!

He trains Gods he should be the strongest since he trains Goku and Vegeta.

He can beat even bills/beerus easily and bills/beerus defeated ssgss goku

V 5 Comments
6 Ichigo - Bleach

Ichigo exist on the spiritual plane of existence and can see things on the physical one, but most of these protagonist are on the physical plane, unable to see Ichigo, also unless their spiritual pressure is higher than his or is densified enough into one attack he'll just stop it with his hand like he did with Aizen.

Oh I forgot ichigo is immortal and if he dies he will be a hollow because he had evil ichigo powers!

He is too powerful! Too we vote for him

I think he deserves to be on this list for a lot of reasons wich I'm toolazy to state on here

V 39 Comments
7 Bills - Dragon Ball Z

He can destroy a planet using his one finger

Bills Should Be At Second after whis

Bills is stronger than goko. Remember wiz tell him that he used his 70%energy

Why omni king is not in top 1 he is stronger than beerus

8 Monkey D. Luffy - The One Piece Monkey D. Luffy - The One Piece Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

I'm extremely tired of this. Stop hating, stop cursing at Naruto just because it's a higher rank than your favorite anime. Because it is true. Naruto is stronger than Luffy or what I think. But you can't really compare an anime character to another because they are in completely different worlds, completely different powers, completely different levels of power, different things you can accomplish. It is just the fan base. It's your opinion. Don't say sorry because you are still offending people. I respect your opinion so you respect mine.

Oh, why is he not the number ONE? He should be the number one, right? Oh well, I feel sorry for Naruto fans who voted him. At first I was about to vote for him but I remembered the ending and the movie of it so Luffy is the strongest anime chara for me. Sorry Naruto fans, I hate jackass Naruto.

Luffy never backs out of a fight each time he wins he gets stronger and stronger he's up to gear 4, Goku can beat that. But he will get some damage from luffy because luffy is powerful

I can bet that whiteboard will kick naruto,ichigo and natsu's ass,he has the power of gura-gura fruit(earthquake fruit)

9 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.

Isn't Saitama already at number 2, why is he here? THEY ARE THE SAME! And Saitama, not once, has gone all out.

Let's be honest here, a man that can stop the rain, meteors (Both with One Punch), and suffer severe pride beating, is really strong. It took Goku a whole Kamehameha to destroy a meteor.

The only way to beat him is to catch him during a sale.

Infinite power capable of ignoring all other powers. Defies reality and could instantly destroy any anime character, probably even omnipotents.

Well naruto is weak can throw luffy in to space can crush gokus heart and vegetas can slap whis and vados face off with a slap can easily kill bills and can pinch zenoh to death

10 Vados - Dragon Ball Super Vados - Dragon Ball Super

She should be in top 3. She can singlehandedly beat both Goku and Vegeta at the same time. - ScarletWarrior

Vados is even much more stronger than whis she is whises big sister come on she should be the first

The Contenders

11 Giorno Giovanna - JoJo's Bizarre Giorno Giovanna - JoJo's Bizarre

A bit of an unorthodox strongest dude in the universe, but still the true No. 1 spot. Goku wouldn't even be able to touch him. Giorno could set Goku's transformations to zero. Then set all his training to zero. Then beat him and set his death to zero. It's not a fair fight by any means, but Giorno wins every time

The power to make ANYTHING return to the state of zero, infinite range. Do I need to say anything more? With his power he's able to manipulate reality, or make you die infinitely in different ways every time. Basically OP.

You can tell the only people who voted any other characters are people who don't know who Giorno is. One of the strongest characters in all of manga. Ridiculously overpowered main ability. You could be a literal god and still be unable to beat him.

Gold experience requiem enough said

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

Sasuke is Boss with his Rinnegan. He can also control the tailed beasts and use it as his own. Maybe he can even do what Madara tried to do Project Tsuki no me

Sasuke is really strong. I personally think he's on the same level as Naruto but other than that, he is strong.

East or west Sasuke is the best

He's The best

13 Edward Newgate - One Piece

He can destroy the planet with a single punch while in his 70s. Most of the higher people on this list can't hold a candle to him. He's a one-man military organisation.

He's so strong, he was able to tear a whole city down with just his bare hands.

I mean, he created a tsunami with a punch in the air...

Saitama splits the atmosphere with one punch? B*TCH this man can destroy the world with one punch!

V 4 Comments
14 Pegasus Seiya - Saint Seiya

Is literally the strongest on the list

Fastes,strongest his saiya he can merk any man on this list no effort trust me mate

Seiya has the ability to adapt to any opponent, he evolves constantly mid battle. He has faced silver and gold saints, god warriors, specters and gods and won every single time. But the biggest reason is at he doesn't die. the guy is worst than a zombie.

15 Medaka Kurokami - Medaka Box Medaka Kurokami - Medaka Box

Medaka can Controll Persons etc etc or even with supernatural powers like saitama or Goku She can even copy the one's abnormal moves like being invisible, strong possessing and stuffs and she is also a girl with big b***s

16 Gohan - Dragon Ball Gohan - Dragon Ball Son Gohan is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Gohan is introduced as the first son of the protagonist Goku, and his wife Chi-Chi, in chapter #196 Kakarrot, first published in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine on October 24, 1988. Chi-Chi is a strict and protective more.

Gohan is insanely powerful as shown in his epic fight with Cell. And he was a kid at that time and you know your breath was whisked away when you watched him. Sure, he gave up on training when peace was restored and powered down when the Majin Buu saga began when Kibit requested him to show him Super Saiyan and Vegeta commented that he was much stronger during the Cell fight and he hadn't been training. Gohan must be at least 3rd or 4th because he IS Goku's son and whenever he's angered, the enemies are in big trouble. Conclusion: Piss him off, you're already dead.

Gohan defeated cell remember and almost had evil buu

Why he's stronger then most characters this list is crap

He is amazing

17 Broly - Dragon Ball Z Broly - Dragon Ball Z

I can't believe he isn't canon like what the hell

Don't forget this badass character

No match to him

Saitama is noob for him

18 Future Trunks - Dragon Ball Z Future Trunks - Dragon Ball Z

His rnew form in super says it all

19 Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - Gurren Lagann

He literally withstood the power of the Big Bang, whereas Goku in the latest movie almost got killed by a laser gun.

Come on. This guy is millions of light years tall...

This mecha can grow bigger than the universe depending on Simones will which is limitless in my opinion this power is by far the strongest source of energy in the anime world

He is bigger than the observable universe

20 Trunks - Dragon Ball Z Trunks - Dragon Ball Z Trunks (トランクス, Torankusu) is the first Earthling and Saiyan hybrid son of Bulma and Vegeta, and the older brother of Bulla .
21 Natsu Dragneel - Fairy Tail Natsu Dragneel - Fairy Tail Natsu Dragneel is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild.Natsu is carefree and reckless in nature, and, despite his consistent brawls with the other members of Fairy Tail, he is a fiercely loyal and protective friend. He is willing to go down fighting for his friends, regardless of how futile it might seem. more.

Must I remind people in the comments that being handsome isn't really a strength, but Natsu is super strong. Like Erza said, Natsu responds to stronger opponents by becoming stronger himself. If he were pitted against any of the Forbidden Four (the strong ones no rates above each other or whatever) I think it'd all come to a draw. All of the characters in anime strive towards strength for their family, but in all honesty, Natsu has demonstrated his means of getting power to do just that. He's come to near death several times, like any other character, but still pushed himself further. I haven't watched Dragon Ball, but based on Naruto, Luffy, and Ichigo, I'd say Natsu were to try the hardest, and to me, that's strength.

Natsu is immortal and is also the strongest demon of the books of zeref capable of killing an immortal, I think he will be able to beat saitama however I don't know against goku

Natsu is the best because of his overflowing. He is very heroic. He survived death many times and above all he is loyal.

If we get all the dragon ball z idiots outa here its all fairy tail

22 Kami Tenchi - Tenchi Muyo

Kami Tenchi almost destroyed the multiverse and the hyperdimension and at that time, he was restraining himself to avoid total destruction! He created three "Super Goddesses" just so that there's some evidence as to how powerful he is.

Goku at best can destroy multiple planets. Even Bills could only handle 1 solar system enraged. I've yet to see any DBZ characters destroy MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS AND GALAXIES!

Plus Kami Tenchi is omnipotent. Infinite power and infinite forms. Kami Tenchi is everything and nothing. He is literally all of life and things. He neither experience life nor death. Once, he visited his reincarnated human self in the future to save the hyperdimensions from himself. Only other omnipotent characters can fight Kami to a standstill.

Makes SSJ4 Gogeta, Dark Schneider, and pegasus seiya pale in comparison

This character is omnipotent? Owhs? He was almost defeated by Z. If he is omnipotent he me must be God. Then lo! Let us praise him! Let's make a new religion haha! He is not God because he is just a created being. Oh come on, did the maker of this anime study philosophy? God is one who creates and not created. So better stop this illogical anime.

23 Uchiha Madara - Naruto

Since he was brought back from the dead he has an immortal body. He also has the rinnegan and wood style. Also he took on the a load of the shinobi alliance by himself

Compared to Madara Goku is a little kid

The new sage of six paths-Madara

Madara uchiha this susanoo is destruction incarnate a single strong of the blade contains enough power to smash all things in this universe

24 Aizen - Bleach

Aw come on guys! Aizen was evil so what? He had almost killed ichigo had he not been stopped by urahara. At least pay some respect to this guy.

He also fought all the Captains with no trouble, and majorly wounded most of them.

25 Kaguya - Naruto

She can defeat Naruto, true. But defeating Goku? Dream on, Kaguya! Defeat Krillin first, and see if you could do that.

How does this make sense people are just voting on their favorite characters instead of strongest

I think she is the strongest character of all time..

Kaguya is saibaman food

26 L - Death Note L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

L for Life. Somebody give this guy a Life Note

One write and your dead

Smart... but not strong...

L is the BEST

27 Sawada Tsunayoshi - Katekyo Hitman Reborn

Do I need to say anything? Sawada tsunayoshi will kick your beloved ass and almost kill you in super dying will form and all he needs to do is distract you and say operation x and you're done for man that's all I have to say

Please, How did Tsuna even come to 11th, He should be 3rd or something. He can beat Luffy, Natsu and Ichigo (if he is visible). To all those who think Tsuna is weak just go ahead and read the manga after you finish the anime. Tsuna becomes so damn strong that it is said he can even beat Primo with ease. Tsuna's got so many epic abilities like his Vongola Gear, Oath Flame, X Burner, Vongola Box (Natsu), Vongola Ring Version X and his main thing Zero Strength Breakthrough which can absorb flames and FREEZE people and FIRE. Natsu would just get his ass kicked as he can only eat weak flames and Tsuna's oath flame or even his pure sky flame would burn Natsu's throat. TSUNA WOULD DESTROY EVERYONE

Tsuna really should be in the top ten. Have you seen his x-burner? Or his double x-burner? No? Then search it up. It's almost as big as a supernova and probably stronger that it. People who think differently look at the images. He can most definitely beat whoever you belive is the strongest. Can your character make a supernova with his hands?

Saitama from one punch man will beat the living hell out of this guy!

Not the strongest character of all time, but he can casually destory whole Naruto and Bleach universe.

31 Elder God Demonbane - Mangafox

He kills omnipotent beings. Omnipotent = All powerful; EGD is beyond infinity. He's so ridiculously overpowered that he's beyond all logic. He's hailed as one of/the most powerful character ever devised. How is he #22?

32 Yhwach - Bleach

He can literally change the future. It takes less energy than blinking. - Historium365

33 Yusuke Urameshi - Yu Yu Hakusho Yusuke Urameshi - Yu Yu Hakusho
34 Lord of Nightmares - Hajime Kanzaka
35 Father - Fullmetal Alchemist
36 Najimi Ajimu - Medaka Box
37 Featherine Augustus Aurora - Umineko no Naku Koro ni

The writer decide what happens in the story, no character can defeat its writer because their existence and powers depends on it. Featherine's power is to be the writer. She is the strongest

She can kill Goku in a split second and just think later how she did it.

The true #1 for all Japanese anime/manga/game character.
I used to think Kami Tenchi from Tenchi Muyo! Was number 1 due to his [omnipotent] category, but I realized that there is not enough proofs that he can be equivalent to TOAA, the Presence, etc. Even though, Featherine is still a nigh-omnipotent, there are no others who can surpass her power so far.

38 Zeref - Fairy Tail Zeref - Fairy Tail Zeref Dragneel is a character from the anime/manga series, Fairy Tail, created by Hiro Mashima. He debuted in chapter 200 of the manga, and episode 96 in the anime. In Fairy Tail, Zeref is considered to be the strongest, most evil Mage of all time, who possesses extremely dangerous, and powerful Magic. more.

Notice how funny it is that all Villains are like..
While Zeref's like,
'... I wanna die... '

What is Zeref doing here? He should be higher than Natsu - ScarletWarrior

He doesn't even need to do anything to beat his enemies, he has black magic and a curse which can kill people in a second even while doing nothing, hate or love they will die, he is immortal and creates demons who are powerful, he can kill Saitama, Goku, Luffy and Naruto at the same time by just standing. And wants to die but can't cause,like I said earlier, his immortal...

go zeref!

48 Alucard - Hellsing/Ultimate Alucard - Hellsing/Ultimate

At the end of the Anime of Hellsing Ultimate you can see/hear he is Omnipotent, that means he can't die to anyone ever aslong he knows he is alive, he can't be erased either, a fight between him and someone else who is Omnipotent would be a infinite fight that would last forever, and even someone like Zen-oh wouldn't be able to erase Alucard from existence since Alucard has reached the "Level" of a God itself.

He is immortal, changes shapes to demons and a badass. The only reason why is not so popular is because anime is just so gory, most of your parents wouldn't allow you to watch it

Alucard cannot die all he needs to do is believe he is alive and he will will be alive. He has he power to be omniscient he is everywhere and nowhere all at the same time.

He uses of psychological fighting, and he's just overpowered. Check the Valentine's OAV, it's just 1/10 of his power! Sure he'll defeat Saitama or the DragnonBall team.

49 Krillin - Dragon Ball Z Krillin - Dragon Ball Z Krillin (クリリン, Kuririn) is a supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga, and the anime series Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super. more.

Rather quite weak compared to the antagonists of DBZ but to be honest if you compare Krillin to some other anime he is actually quite powerful

Krillin would Destroy Naruto, Luffy yes, EVEN MADARA!

The most powerful human. At the end he is stronger than Vegeta when this comes to Earth for the first time. So he can make explote a planet with Naruto, D. Luffy and all this standard warriors inside.

Krillin is sure strong but I don't think he can beat Naruto, Luffy, Ichigo and the other guys
