We’re aware that many viewers hold every anime hero up to the standard set by Goku, however, there is someone who can surpass him in strength. Grand Zeno, from Dragon Ball Super, can create and destroy anyone at will, which is well above Goku’s abilities. When your skills can eliminate any obstacle in your path, is physical strength even necessary? Certainly not in our opinion.
2. Son Goku — ‘Dragon Ball’
Let’s face it: Goku is a cultural icon, and it stands to reason that he inspires constant comparisons. In Dragon Ball, he is a Super Saiyan who has helped save a lot of lives. A lot of people will never be able to say that, but because of his Ultra Instinct, he truly does wield the Power of the Gods.
3. Alucard — ‘Hellsing’
Alucard, better known as Count Dracula, is immortal, able to summon an army of souls at command, and armed with demon dogs. He’s got dual pistols, but if that doesn’t work, he can still tear people to shreds with his bare hands.
4. Yhwach Bach — ‘Bleach’
Yhwach Bach from Bleach is the only one on this list with the ability to give away pieces of his soul. His touch is all it takes to impart some of his powers onto others, allowing them to employ them independently. He resembles All For One, although he retains a face.
5. Kaguya Otsutsuki — ‘Naruto’
This foe is so formidable that even Naruto needs assistance in defeating her. Likely, she’s not even from Earth. She was once the Rabbit Goddess, but after joining the God Tree, she became the Ten-Tails and is now virtually unstoppable.
6. Saitama — ‘One Punch Man
The protagonist of the anime, Saitama, already has the most power of any character. Because of his incredible power to end fights with a single blow, he inspired the series’s title. Even while it makes him miserable to be so powerful, at least he won’t have to fight till he can barely keep his feet as so many other protagonists do.
7. Satoru Gojo — ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’
When your opponent can’t even open their eyes normally, you know you’ve got some serious strength. When it comes to jujutsu, Satoru Gojo of Jujutsu Kaisen is unrivalled. As far as we know, he is the only person in 400 years to inherit both the Limitless and the Six Eyes powers. Because of this, he has to hide his eyes whenever he isn’t actively using his abilities, which can cause him to wear out quickly.
8. Father – ‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Count on one hand the number of anime characters who can claim they have become God. This, in addition to his other superhuman abilities, is what makes Father from Fullmetal Alchemist one of the most powerful characters ever. He has wiped off the entire population of Xerxes in pursuit of his aims and possesses the ability to modify reality to construct any weapon he can imagine.
9. Meliodas – ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’
Don’t be fooled by Meliodas’ youthful appearance; he’s rather dangerous. When his father’s demonic powers are fully activated, he may kill anybody he wants, including his father. He is the most potent of the Seven Deadly Sins, and his “Full Counter” counterattack is capable of neutralizing any opponent.
10. Muzan Kibutsuji — ‘Demon Slayer’
Demon Slayer’s ultimate baddie, Muzan Kibutsuji, isn’t scared to keep killing innocent people for as long as it takes to keep his grip on power. We are aware of his telepathic abilities, his ability to murder his fellow demons without physically touching them, and his ability to mutilate them internally and externally.
