Top 10 Most Powerful Vampire Diaries Characters

The Top Ten
1 Niklaus Mikaelson

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

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

He is strong and almost invulnerable and that allows him to be careless (sometimes) about his enemies. I lo ve his attitude, he KNOWS he is the most powerful creature in the world and he acts like it. However the best part is that he has emotions and cares about some people and would do anything to protect them. That is why I love him.

Niklaus is the original vampire/ hybrid. Within seconds he can rip apart a whole village. Also his sheer presence would drive his victims insane with fear as he toys with them. Heck, if you've seen the Vampire Diaries and you don't agree... well... you better have a INCREDIBLE, FANTASTICLY AMAZING reply. Also he's a dad now so he would go to incredible lengths to protect his daughter (and other family). In the immortal words of Elijah Mikaelson 'Family Is Power'.

2 Silas

This list is not good. People vote for their favorite not strongest. My favorite is klaus but I got to admit silas is the most powerful. How is damon in front of katrina or caroline over strefan. How is bonnie stronger than silas when silas cannot die in any way and is the original witch original supernatural immportal with physic powers. He even managed to fear klaus.

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

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

Silas kicked Klaus' butt. He's definitely stronger. In fact Original Hunter Alaric is stronger than Klaus too. Why is Klaus no. 1?

3 Qetsiyah

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

Qetsiyah is hands down number one. I don't know why Klaus is considered number one when she can easily beat him. Silas is essentially just taking credit for what Qetsiyah started. She is a Bennett Witch, a 2000-year-old witch, and let's not forget that she created the Other Side, immortality, and the cure for immortality. Qetsiyah should be number one because Klaus was turned into a vampire by Esther Mikaelson, who found and altered Qetsiyah's immortality spell. Therefore, Klaus and all vampires and supernatural beings, apart from witches, are alive because of Qetsiyah. Qetsiyah could have accomplished a lot more if she wasn't so obsessed with Silas. Additionally, she created doppelgängers, and let's not forget that she brought herself back from the dead and made Bonnie the anchor after Amara. Qetsiyah should be number one on this list.

It in no way shape or form make sense why Silas is about her. His only accomplishment with magic was getting credit for creating immortality when he didn't do jack squat besides leech off of Qetsiyah.

Obviously. She started everything. No Klaus without the original immortality spell that she created. No Bonnie as she was the start of the Bennet line. And Silas just sucked.

4 Bonnie Bennett

Not only has She been able to defeat Cade and destroy Hell, but she has also created a whole dimension, something that only Arcadius himself has done before her: and unlike her, Bonnie did not have to die to do it. She managed to trouble and or defeat virtually every Villain in TVD, without ever really having a teacher, someone who taught her how to practice magic, since Silas manipulated her and her grandmother died almost immediately. Bonnie arrived where she arrived alone, with her own strength, and without even using her true potential, since, potentially, she could exercise the same mental control that Sybil and Seline have and go even further, given that those two, unlike Bon Bon, they did not create any dimensions, although they had much more experience. Does Bonnie's Magic have any limits? Of course, but I think they are far beyond those of Dahlia, Quetsiyah or anyone else.

First off Bonnie is a bennet a long line of powerful witches and learned to control her magic very swiftly. She was able to carry the power of all the dead witches burned alive which many couldn't do and even resurrected someone from the dead which was never done before. She Has even died and came back many times herself. Although we havnt seen Bonnies fullest potential I still believe she is he most powerful character so far.

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

1. Expression 2. Channeling 100 witches successfully not to mention powerful bennett witches 3. crippled multiple originals 4. even after supposedly losing her magic taking on Kade and beating him when he is arguably the strongest character in TVD universe 5.She held back hellfire and created a hole universe and finally 6. has mastered and gaines all these abilities and power in such a short time for most witches of her power or even any supernatural beings puting her higher then kade and klaus

5 Rebekah

Being an Original makes her in top 5 . People are so dumb that they cannot figure this much , that the list is "top powerful characters" not "top favourite characters". She is an Original , has lived 1000+ years and is clearly the strongest vampire (not including her brothers). this much is enough to put her in top 5.

She is definitely the most powerful (except Niklaus or Elijah). She is the youngest Original, but she is shown to be stronger and faster then Kol or Finn. When she was cursed by The Strix, she managed to break Elijah's neck, and nearly killed Hayley.
She could even fight Klaus when he attacked her at the sanctuary in season one.
(Also, it's a plus that she is the strongest female in the world)

Stronger and faster than everyone else except nick and Elijah, but has manipulation on her side, also likely stronger than Kol and Finn.

She is the neglected one out of all the mikelsons. She loves All her brothers especially klaus and Elijah and always backs them.

6 Damon

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

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

Damon is the best. He is bad but has emotions and would do anything to protect those who he loves. He has an extraordinary sense of humour and, although he is impulsive, he sometimes maneges to make up for all the screwings up he does.

I think that damon should at least be in the to 3, because he is fearless, strong, funny, smart ( although he can be stupid sometimes ), and when he is serious you don't want to mess with him. I honestly love damon

7 Katerina Petrova

Katherine needs to be higher up. She is by far the smartest character in the universe. She manages to evade Klaus and survive for 500 years, then when she dies she goes to hell wraps the devil around her little finger and when he died she's becomes hells we ruler. She is the cause of almost everything that happens to Stefan, Damon, Elena, Tyler, Caroline and even Bonnie. If were talking power, it is her actions that had the most effect over all aside from those of Klaus, Silas and Quatsiya... She should be higher. Unless you're doing an ironic thing where she's 7th because it's a magically powerful number... 😂

She is over 500 years old! She can take on Stefan and Damon easily without even breaking her finger. The only thing that would stop her killing anyone that gets in her way is so she doesn't wear down her heels!

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

Ok. I agree that there are more stronger characters than Katherine. But when it comes to survival skills and intelligence, Katherine slays them all.

8 Stefan

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

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

Stefan needs to be above Damon. Stefan is stronger than Damon also he is the ripper

Even though Stefan loves everyone, he has strength deep down.

He has saved so many people

Stefan is very strong

9 Elijah Mikaelson

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

Certainly stronger than 7-3. And probably Klaus. The oldest original of the Miklaelson family. Easily could best all of the mystic falls vampires and most any vampire. If Klaus wasn't a hybrid he would be easily number 1.

I think he deserves to be at least top 5. He can control Klaus when he goes on his spree. He has the best with words and is very powerful.

He had the chance to kill Klaus but decided not to because his family means more and needed to locate them first.

10 Caroline Forbes

Caroline the vampire Forbes is to be feared she didn't deserve to be miss mystic Falls Elena does deserve to be Miss Mystic Falls ! She , Caroline is full of herself and really shelfish in my opinion and she is rude as well . if you vote Caroline you will be voting for a vampire who can manipulate and kill anyone who gets their way . Caroline is a vampire , Elena is much better than Caroline

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

She has Klaus down 4 her

The Contenders
11 Alaric Saltzman

He is an enhanced original vampire made by Esther who made him stronger than Mikael, hence equally if not stronger than the originals.

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

Because who else do you know who is human and comes back to life so many times... Like really

He must be second as he is enhanced original.

12 Dahlia

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

Ehm hello,

Dahlia could easily beat Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah, Freya and Mikeal. She was truly immortal when she bonded with klaus and she could mind control every human she could find.

She is a super powerful, 1000 year old witch whose powers shouldn't be taken lightly.

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

13 Freya Mikaelson

She is strong enough to be in top 10.What is this? Caroline, Stefan & Damon are in top 10? Top 10 is easily filled by the 6 Mikaelson siblings, Silas ,Qetsiyah, Dahlia and Bonnie Benett.

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

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

14 Elena

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

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

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

Elena beat Katherine, and made her miserable. Instead of taking the cure herself, she shoved it down Katherine's throat and won the fight. Honestly, I think Elena is stronger than Katherine.

15 Hope Mikaelson

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

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

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

Is stronger than davina

16 Kai

He found his way out of the prison world, with his own loophole. He came back from the dead in Season 8 and also he escaped hell, he is a siphoner/witch/vampire which makes him very powerful. He can steal anyone's magic, he almost killed the whole Gemini Coven members, He absorbed the traveler's spell, just in seconds. He literally killed the main character which is Elena, and the only way to get Elena back is by killing Bonnie Bennet, which is a tricky way of killing people, he is a smart character. When he absorbed the travelers spell, he could throw someone in the air, he could explode someone in blood, which he mentions in the Mystic Grill when he captured Elena. More will come soon in season 8..

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

He's extremely powerful. I'm pretty sure he's more powerful than Bonnie. Plus he's so hot that's probably his most powerful spell

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

17 Kol Mikaelson

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

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

Should be higher how is Stephen and damon above him good actor

18 Arcadius

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

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

Arcadius Is THE most powerful character of the VD universe atm. He is the literal Devil. They needed to use his own power ( the doomsday bell of doom ) and destroy HELL to kill him.

He is the devil, need I say more?

19 Davina Claire

The harvest girl. She broke klaus' sire line. Freya could make lucien a normal vampire by using her power only . She deserves to be in top 10

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

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

Is on bad witch

20 The Hollow

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

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

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

21 Mikael

literally the oldest vampire in history, the original siblings together weren't able to kill him before klaus broke the curse. klaus was clearly more powerful than him as a hybrid but Elijah, Rebekah and Kol were weaker than him

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

I'll say that he's the strongest of the Originals. He should be number five on the list after Silas, Qetsiyah, Dahlia and Freya.

He is the person that even Klaus feared. This is enough to make him in top 5.

22 Marcel Gerard

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

He is the Beast of the prophecy!

He can't be beat

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

She was pumped with enough wolfsbane to kill a pack, yet she endured it and was able to move with little to no difficulty.

She is quite cool and she is a Hybrid!

She's so strong

25 Esther Mikaelson
