Animes have given us countless heroic and unbelievably strong characters throughout the years. A hero who starts out weak ends up being the most powerful being the world, such a cliché has been very common in action animes. Some characters though are so strong, they can move at the speed of light and have enough strength to destroy the entire planet in just one punch. They really get your heart racing. In their honor, I am going to list the 9 most powerful anime characters ever created. Now its really impossible for me to know all of them so this list is going to my personal opinion which will list the characters that left me in awe.
9) KEN KANEKI- TOKYO GHOUL
Tokyo Ghoul has become a classic whichever anime fan has to see. One of the best animes ever made, Ken Kaneki is the protagonist of the series. He starts with being a total loser and having a breakdown, ends up being the craziest and strongest ghouls ever to exist and is literally worshipped. He drinks coffee, eats humans, and even ghouls to power himself up. By the end of the series, he is nearly undefeatable.
8) ALUCARD- HELSING ULTIMATE
One of the coolest characters ever made, Alucard (Dracula spelled backward) is the protagonist of the Hellsing series and can be said to be an anti-hero. Frankly, everything thing that happened in Hellsing Ultimate (all the actions which include destroying London and killing everyone there) was to “try” to kill Alucard at the end of the series, and he still lives. Alucard can summon anyone he has ever killed and has the power to bend space and reality after Schrodinger’s cat is absorbed by him.
7) SAITAMA- ONE PUNCH MAN
Now I know a lot of people might think he should be ranked higher, but despite Saitama’s strength, he doesn’t have the ability to bend space and reality like the others do. The main protagonist of One Punch Man, his strength to be exact has no limit. He just trained normally for 3 years and somehow removed his limiter. We really don’t how strong he exactly is and he should be able to fight all the characters above his ranking in terms of strength but he does not have any other abilities which is why I have ranked him so low.
6) ICHIJO KUROSAKI- BLEACH
The main protagonist of bleach is again is one of the classics, by the end of the series Ichigo can kill reality-bending gods with ease. We are not really sure of his limit but destroying ta few cities in seconds doesn’t seem too much of a hassle for him now.
5) NARUTO UZUMAKI- NARUTO FRANCHISE
His name means “underdog”, he started from one of the weakest to the strongest character in the entire franchise. Naruto is a must-watch series for all anime lovers. Naruto is a reckless ninja who is super cool, funny, and also the host of the nine-tailed beast Kurama. By the end of the series, he has total control over the beast and can flatten cities in a blink of an eye. Even without the help of Kurama, his power is nothing to scoff at.
4) SON GOKU (ULTRA INSTINCT)- DRAGON BALL SUPER
From this point on, the list is going to be dominated by DBS characters and with good reason. Goku could destroy planets when he was just a super Saiyan. He has come a long way from there and now can compete with gods. Hell, he could do that when he was a Super Saiyan God, he even surpassed that and now finally unlocked Ultra Instinct during the Universe Tournament arc. Ultra-instinct is something even the gods cannot master, he is capable of destroying a few galaxies in seconds. Sadly, he can only keep it up for a few minutes (but that is enough for him to kills trillions).
3) BEERUS- DRAGON BALL SUPER
Universe 7’s God of destruction, he has been seen to destroy a planet using a particle-sized energy ball. Using 100% of his power, Beerus is capable of wiping out all matter and energy from existence without batting an eye. The god is obsessed with Earth’s food and sleeping, the extent of his power is unfathomable.
2) WHIS- DRAGON BALL SUPER
This has admitted his stronger than Beerus and by quite a margin. He is sort of immortal and has possibly lived since the start of the universe. On top of his destructive powers, he is capable of manipulating space and time. He should be capable of destroying the universe at full power but he will never do that.
1) ZENOS- DRAGON BALL SUPER
The most powerful character ever created, this childlike being can destroy the universe with just a flick of his fingers. He is very childish and does whatever he wants, but that is what makes him very very dangerous as he might even destroy the universe on the whim. On top of this, this dimension has 2 Zenos after the future Zenos of the other dimension destroyed his universe.
