Top 10 Strongest Heroes From MythologyHeroes from all mythologies are allowed. Not just Greek. This is a mixture of physical strength, defense, magic, and intelligence. They must be mythological, or at least found in mythology and not in history.
The Top Ten
Karna. A hero so damned terrifying, that even GODS feared his power. It took two curses to hit him with bad luck at the worst possible moment (one caused his chariot to get stuck and he spent the rest of the fight trying to get it free again, the other made him forget the incantation to a spell that fires NUKES! ), a god getting him to give up his armour (that made Karna completely invincible), and ANOTHER god directly helping the second greatest hero of the time to kill Karna.
And Arjuna, the other guy? Could only manage it then by attacking Karna from behind, while Karna was trying to get his chariot free. Both actions in direct violation of the code of honour (which Karna followed perfectly in battle). Oh, and during their fight, Karna's arrows were so powerful that they pushed back Arjuna's chariot. A chariot which was being driven by the god Vishnu, and thus weighed as much as the ENTIRE UNIVERSE! AND KARNA'S ARROWS MANAGED TO PUSH THE CHARIOT BACKWARDS! Even Vishnu said ...more
Karna Could surely beat Achilles. Please read about him, you'll get my point. He was just the best warrior universe could ever produce.
He was a figure who always drew the short end of the stick, abandoned by his mother at birth, cursed by the gods for his overwhelming strength and virtues, and yet he stood tall and stuck by his beliefs till the end. Karna is without a doubt the most powerful of all the heroes in the mahabharata, yet also the most human. He got cursed by mother earth while helping a little girl, gave up his armour to a god who wanted to see him fall, and stood by his friends even though it meant he was going to die for it. Yet, with all his misfortune he was still accepted by Parashurama for his virtues, and managed to become stronger than anyone else including the other pandavas even though they had received numerous gifts and boons from the gods. Hence he is also my favourite hero, someone whom everyone in the end acknowledged.
One of the great warrior of all times with Nobel abilities.V 139 Comments
This is the Greatest hero ever he is so purpose top be number 1
He is an amazing hero
No thanksV 37 Comments
When he died it must have sucked to be stabbed in the heel
This guy is absolutely insane. Worthy of Ares and Athena and all the war gods combined.
Achilles is the name we all hear when you are introduce to greatest warriors of all time. Simple as that. He wanted his name to be remembered for centuries and so he did. There are a lot of legends. But achilles stands out always, no matter who tells the story
He is the strongest heroV 51 Comments
Big bad ass pro
He definitely should be higher on the list!
Beawulf killed the monster Grendal
Awesome!V 18 Comments
Perseus is one of my favorites. He chopped off medusa's head, killed a sea monster and killed drunk people who were going crazy. I like how he killed his stupid grandfather and didn't know he did. That guy is totally crazy. He even rested well when he literally threw his daughter into the ocean.
Same he killed medusa and killed his stupid or just evil grandfather
I think percy Jackson is the strongest hero because well... just read the books and you will understand. but out of these it is perseus besides percy Jackson is named after him.V 17 Comments
Who could be the strongest hero other than The Great Sage Equal to Heaven
I don't understand how Kratos before Kratos was Kratos is only 6th on this list. He united demons and demi humans against the heavens and beat the crap out of all the gods in the Chinese pantheon before needing to be subdued by Buddha himself
Sun Wukong is EASILY the strongest on this list the guy Rampaged through heaven whooping everybody's butts and had to be stopped by Budha himself. ( The most powerful being between the Buddhist and Taoist pantheons) He made himself immortal through like 4 different means, So he is like ridiculously immortal now and he has such a long list of powers that I don't have the time to even mention half of them. And to top it all off, he is the character that Goku is based on... Enough said.
Proper nice name
Bloody class my bestie
With all respect I want to say that characters like Lord Shiva, Zeus, Odin, Thor should not be counted in this list because they are Literally the gods of their respective mythologies. So you can't compare them with karna or Hercules or Achilles. These characters are demigods or humans so they can be called as heroes. And gods don't have any limitations of power and strength but these characters have.
He is top 1 so please edit this page
The person who has made this list obviously doesn't know in detail about any of these heroes
The destroyerV 15 Comments
Whoever wrote the list does not know that Zeus is a god, not a hero. They also don't know that it's GREEK, not Grek.
Zeus is a god
He is god, not hero or demigod
Zeus is the king of the Greek deities for a reason and is an absolute monster. He should be number one.
He's a god and shouldn't be on this list
He is the man
With the avengers he is unstoppable!
Thor is easily among the top contenders for this list.V 11 Comments
Theseus is my BOI I LOVE HIM sure he abandoned Ariadne and kind of caused his father's death BUT NOBODY'S PERFECT
He was the son of the most powerful god which is Poseidon. Most of all he slaved the Minotaur!V 12 Comments
He was the greatest archer in the world till now
He could destroy the whole army with only one arrow. That arrow was even more powerful than any nuclear weapon!
Rama is the strongest god
He can easily beat HerculesV 13 Comments
The greatest warrior, a person of outstanding physical strength, martial prowess, but also an unmatched philosopher and strategist, the complete hero... Who can win battles without even wielding weapon... He won the greatest battle for pandavas, without killing a single person himself...
Krishna is India old gods, the Krishna come to cow. Me comparison to Krishna is in series Xena: Warrior princess to 4 season, episode The Way. In Xena, episode The Way have discover to Krishna, in blue colour body, take black power and reincarnation to Xena. Krishna take four hand, s and two foot, and attacker opposite to Rama.
God who maintains and protects dharma (right way) and also followers of dharma. willing to do any effort and sacrifice whenever dharma is threatened on earthV 51 Comments
Atalanta was overpowered as hell. The only reason people don't know her was because the ancient greeks and romans were very misogynistic and find the notion that a woman can be so strong to be ridiculous.
Atalanta is an excellent huntress and the fastest runner in ancient Greek mythology. She defeated Peleus (Achilles' father) in wrestling and she was the only female Argonaut. A very beautiful and independent woman.
She's really strong and fastV 4 Comments
They are extremely powerful. - blacku22
No he didn't the fight ended with no winner and was declared a draw by zues himself
Beat Hector in single combat through sheer endurance.
Was said to be stronger than all of Greece. was a great friend to many other heroes including Achilles and Odysseus
Yep he got all what the word KING suppose to have
All others are mongrels and must bow before the king of heroes
"You are not worthy to gaze upon me. A worm like you should face the ground, crawl on your stomach and die."
He is the bestV 20 Comments
I mean, gae bolg is so op
Cu Chulainn is in essence the Irish Heracles and should honestly be ranked higher especially considering how many gods are in the top 10
Son of the god Lug and held off an entire army by defeating a myriad of its troops in one-on-one combat in succession until they became frustrated and attack anyway, but Cú Chulainn (whose battle-rage was legendary) killed hundreds of his assailants, erecting a wall of corpses.
Oh come on he beat a war goddess and almost single handedly beat an entire army!V 8 Comments
I am so surprised to see that Muhammad's Uncle Amir Hamza is nowhere on this list. He slayed a dragon with his bare hands and routed an entire army with only one sword blow. He can surely crush Hercules.
He was the most calm, sage, genius, strong and overall best person to ever exist
Most influential imaginary friend I've ever had.
He was not a mythological character. Remove him from this list of creepy characters. He was a real person and the greatest person in the world.V 22 Comments
When he was a 1 year old he outsmarted of wisest of men. He saved all of humanity through his death he gave life. He has a giant cross which is his weapon. He only used 1% of his power during the crucifixion. He is limitless he is the lord. It is known that he fought beowulf, achilles, karna, and hercules at the same time by himself blindfolded using only his pinky finger.
ITS JESUS, complete omnipotence!
He's the Allmighty God, he is number 1 on all listes.V 16 Comments
He defied the gods and got away with it how is he not at the top
He was actually a human not some demigod or immortal dude.
He ended the Trojan war.
He was not a demigod and yet defied gods and monsters, winning through cunning what he could not win through strength alone. He ended the siege of Troy, a feat that not even the migthy Achiles accomplished. He went to the underworld and returned with life, he killed the son of Poseidon and avoided the god's revenge. He suffered for 10 years to return to his home, denying immortality and the love of godesses to return to his family.V 6 Comments
Is killing 3400 soldiers single handedly enough to get you on the list? Armed with two swords and two spears, one of which can cause wounds that never heal, his legend is one of love, violence, chivalry and tragedy.
*Gasps* The dual-wielding Lancer-class Servant of chivalry! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
He boned a whole village
Plus those 3400 warriors were from the otherworld so possibly gods?V 3 Comments
He can easily defeat christ
Karna would easily defeat him.
Hero who showed all emotions and weakness of humans, a sort of emotional being among the mythical heroes. Perfect example of modern humans
Arjuna is most powerful warrior and he has the power to consume the whole world in a single arrow. Hence he is the powerful epic hero.V 14 Comments
He can't die while holding Excalibur. And it cuts anything so...
Madness being so low on this list
The legendary concept of ideal king carried by a mere human being, with a divine power on their guard, represented especially by the legendary sword Excalibur.
Chosen by a weapon, he became a weapon in his own right. Fighting his enemies and serving his nation as a knight of the round.V 7 Comments
Of course this dude should be higher. He could battle guys like Thoth who had beaten beings like the eye of Ra who was planetary and could destroy eath's population. Heck, even ancient Egypt's avengers then(Ennead) couldn't stop him. Classic villain
Legendary magician who outsmarted Thoth, the dead prince Neferkaptah, Ptah, and even defeated demons powered by the Ennead, making him at par with gods like Sekhmet or maybe even Apep.
Actually speaking, he is mainly Hindu. He is, however mentioned when Greek Heliodorus arrived as the ambassador of Greece,
True. If a person appears in both Greek and Indian legends, he just got to be great. - KingKhan75
This guy controls several powerful weapons and prayers
Guy who beat up 125 men in Greece even though Indian.
He is the bestV 8 Comments
I think she is a inspiring woman and some people thinks shes cute
She basically cross dress so that she could fight about... twelve or so years in war. And she also managed to do this without being caught, famous selfless heroine.
This is like one of the only heroes that is a girl and can fight with a sword. Okay, Atalanta fought a boar, but Mulan fought a war!V 1 Comment
The true meaning behind the term "Blinded by Love".
A Hippy with anger issues. Killed more people in one go when he was blind than in his whole sighted life.
"And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men."
How did you come to the conclusion that Christ is a myth?
Was known for being called Siegfried of the undead or the immortal man. was eaten by a dragon, carved his way out, and bathed in its blood making him invulnerable except for the one spot on his back that the blood didn't touch.
Sorry I put this in the wrong block.
The viking version of Siegfried. Had a horse that was descended from Sleipnir, Odin's personal horse, had a sword that could cut through an ANVIL and was called Gram (meaning "wrath"), bathed in dragon blood which made him invulnerable except for a small spot on his back, drank dragon blood which gave him the ability to talk to birds, ATE a dragon heart which gave him the ability to see the future.
When some idiot finally decided to kill him in his sleep, it was with Sigurd's own sword, he still pulled it out of his back and killed his murderer.
You know the Vikings T.V. series? That lady who marries Ragnar in season 2 is his daughter.
He killed zeus an thor, so I think he needs to be in top ten
He can easily kill Heracles with only one weapon
He killed his own son in a battle and after he killed him he know how he is.
He should be in 5 of top heroV 1 Comment
My role model. I wanted to conquer the whole world!
That is me
Conquered the half-world as he was the greatest warrior
He just conquered the half of the world he deserves #1V 3 Comments
The most complete hero of the Trojan war, the youngest king, smarter than Odysseus, brawny as Ajax, even the great Hector did not want to be found against him in battle, the "Aristos" hero according Homer, only he and Hercules (Diomedes uncle) faced gods in the battle and defeat... the man that goddess Athena wanted to side when he became immortal. Some say he was the patriarch of Celtic nation.
Diomedes stabbed Aphrodite with a spear, defeated Hektor, chased away Apollo, almost killed Aeneas, and nearly killed Ares in battle. Yes, Diomedes beat the god of war at his own game. And to top it off, he received absolutely no repercussion for his actions. - ShuhBanggg
The God-Slayer, One of the best Strategist of Trojan War, the only warrior that the Trojans feared, Third Highest Commander among all the Achaeans during the Trojan War, The Most Favorite Warrior of the Goddess Athena and the Youngest Ruler among all Achaeans
My dudes he is sexy with these looks he turned medusa to gold. He is actually awesome.
He is the cyclops
He defeated a dragon and bathe in its blood causing him to become invincible. Not to mention with his sword, which is called Gram, he can easily take on Karna.
Got his abilities from cutting his way out of the stomach of a dragon and bathing in its blood. often called Siegfried of the undead
Was incapable of feeling fear, has a helm that he can use to shapeshift, has a ring that is more powerful that the one from LotR, has a sword akin to Excalibur, and defeated Wotan (Odin) almost easily.
He should be the first. He conquered 10 damn planets!
Ravana is the greatest king who ever ruled the world, as well as a part of universe from a tiny island SRI LANKA locate lonely in indian ocean.
RAVANA SRI LANKA
He was the greatest scientist in his time.V 5 Comments
The greatest warrior of the Kaurav side and blessed with a boon of death according to his own will
No one of his kind who also have the ability and skills to fight with devtas also
The grand sire in the epic of mahabharath
Number 1 with out any doudtV 2 Comments
Oh come on he can easily defeat anyone from this list simultaneously.except lord shiva
Grelatest warrior in the war of ramayana. Fought with the devs and brought their king Indra as hostage. Even the gods prayed to bring back Indra. Who else could do that?
He was named Indrajeet (one who conquered Indra) after he defeated n captured Indra, the king of gods.
If all the greatest warriors come to attack Meghnada they will lose..Indrajit or Meghanada was a prince of Lanka and a conqueror of Indra Loka (heaven). He was mentioned in the Indian epic Ramayana as the son of king Ravana. Ravana wanted his son to be a great devotee of Lord Shiva and equal to Lord Shiva in warfare. As per the wish of Ravana, Indrajit was blessed to be a warrior equal to Lord Shiva. Indrajit played an active role in the great war between Rama and Ravana. He was a mighty Mahamaharathi. He is considered as the most powerful and the only warrior to ever possess the three ultimate weapons of Trimurti, i.e. Brahmanda astra, Vaishnava astra, and Pashupatastra. He acquired all kinds of celestial weapons from his Guru Shukra, Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. By defeating the devas in the heaven he took their weapons and become the possessor of all kinds of divine weapons of deva, asura's and Trimurti's.He even twice defeated Rama and Lakshman, the avatars of Lord Vishnu. ...more
He had a special ability to drain half power of the opponent. He roamed keeping ravana in his armpit for several years. Even lord Rama shot him at his back. He could have killed anyone in this list in close combat without any fatigue.
To be more clear, Indra the king of gods gave him a boon according to which anyone who came at him with the intent to fight would lose half his strength to Bali. So it made him pretty much invincible in battle. And yeah once ravan challenged him for a fight and Bali, defeating him, took him around the world tied up in his tail.
I hate him.
Bad ass god, evil and cunning but makes life interesting for the gods of norse
He was not necessarily evil, he was just a trickster. the god that was known to play both sides of Ragnarok, murderer of his best friend Balder, son of Laffy the king of ice giants, and the father/mother of many monsters. some of his children include Fenrir, the midgard serpent, and Odin's horse.loved his family but known to rebel for attention and recognition.
He is a real person most heroes can't say that, but I think he should be on this list because he beat a huge panther, killed or tamed thousands of bears, and killing Mexican solider upon Mexican solider in his demise at the Alamo. That is why Davy Crockett should be on this list.
God of the sea and the water element.
Creator of writing and god of knowledge. You can't be reading this without thot
The god of knowledge. No one was as smart as him.
Creator of knowledge and the Book of Thoth. Kinda a dick to people who cross him
Has superhuman power
Theseus is the hero who played the minotaur
Originally from the island crete where one of the gods, probably Zeus again, took the form of a prized bull and raped the queen. the creature had the labyrinth built for it to live and would eat all men that entered the maze except for Theseus
The legendary friend of gilgamesh and he could kick ass
Elder brother of Lord Krishna. Teacher of Gadhayudha, Mallayudha for Bheema and Duryodhana
Strongest man ever lived, died only because of fate

his father was rostam.
Ancient hunter-warrior of Irish mythology
Cadmus is just an awesome hero and he fought a dragon as well. He was the first Greek hero so he has to be very powerful in terms of combat strength.
Killed the dragon Sybaris and founded the city of Thebes. Defeated over half the Spartoi.
