The Demon King holds a massive amount of power, living for over a billion years in Purgatory with no changes to his physical abilities. The villain can tear up the ground with the flick of a finger and out duel almost any swordsman due to his agility and speed. However, The Demon King’s most significant ability is magic. This magic includes shape-shifting, energy-blasts, and “Death Zero”, where a dark pressure crushes his enemy.

9 Alucard — Hellsing

The only thing more intimidating than a vampire is a vampire with a gun as Hellsing so perfectly shows audiences. The protagonist, Alucard is featured in the Hellsing series created by Kouta Hirano. The former human turned True Vampire (Demon) is no regular vampire, in fact, Alucard is one of the most powerful vampires alive.

Alucard, or his alias, Vlad the Impaler, possesses superhuman strength, speed, and enhanced endurance. There are certain seals that contain his true power, yet, Alucard rarely has to use them. Instead, he routinely takes damage from his enemies only to regenerate, as a form of taunting them.

8 Kaguya Otstsuki — Naruto

Kaguya was a member of the Otsutsuki clan and head matriarch of a branch family. Making her first appearance on Naruto, Kaguya gained immense power after consuming the fruit of the God Tree, becoming the first wielder of chakra on Earth.

Eventually, Kaguya mergers with the God Tree to become the Ten-Tails. While this made her one of the strongest beings ever, she possessed otherworldly powers long before this. Kaguya was capable of interstellar travel, hypnotizing, erasing memories, and producing shockwaves from her eyes that could injure anyone nearby. Once she does become the Ten-Tails, these powers are magnified exponentially, while she also gains the power to absorb chakra.

7 Vegeta — Dragon Ball franchise

Vegeta is one of the most prideful characters in anime, the prince of the fallen Saiyan race and husband to Bulma, Vegeta is the father to Trunks and Bulla. Vegeta, who is featured in the Dragon Ball series has one of the most praised character development arcs in anime, the character started off as the main antagonist of the Saiyan saga, and eventually evolves into a secondary protagonist/ hero in the Dragon Ball Z sequel, Dragon Ball Super.

Vegeta is one of the strongest fighters of the multiverse, showing tremendous power at a young age even by the standards of the Saiyan race. His relentless discipline in training has routinely paid off as his power levels have increased over the years. Vegeta possesses superhuman strength, speed, and durability, however, like many of his contemporaries, Vegeta’s energy attacks are his most powerful. The Galick Gun, Lucora Gun, and Big Bang Attack are all energy strikes capable of defeating most combatants.

6 Meruem — Hunter X Hunter

The main antagonist of the Chimera Ant arc of the anime series Hunter x Hunter, Meruem is the king of the Chimera Ants and one of the most powerful offspring of the Chimera Ant Queen.

Meruem’s most important powers are his extraordinary intelligence, however, the king does possess super strength, durability, speed, and photon/ rage blasts. In addition, Meruem has perfected his skills in hand-to-hand combat and is an excellent strategist. The king often relies on swift single blows via bare hands or his deadly tail, capable of decapitating almost anyone in an instant.

5 Frieza — Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball’s rogue gallery is downright iconic, yet Frieza is in a league of his own. Frieza is the main antagonist of the original Dragon Ball series, the legendary character commands an imperial army and has most recently been named emperor of parts of Universe 7. Through several revivals and comebacks, Frieza has cemented their legacy as Goku’s arch nemesis and greatest foe.

Frieza was born with exponentially greater power than others of his race. In First Form, Frieza was able to defeat Vegeta (the strongest Saiyan at the time) with a single blow. In Final Form, using a mere 1% of his suppressed power was already stronger than any of Frieza’s previous forms. Frieza’s enhanced speed, strength, and power that was capable of leveling planets were only challenged by Goku.

4 Boros — One-Punch Man

Lord Boros was the leader of the Dark Matter Thieves, a rogue group of alien invaders responsible for massive destruction featured in the popular One-Punch Man series. Known as “The Dominator of the Universe” became so powerful that no one dared to battle him, thus, Boros faced a self-imposed existential crisis.

Due to his thrill of fighting, Boros frequently traveled dimensions in search of worthy opponents. While the leader has authority over an entire armada, Boros is one of the strongest beings in the universe. Gifted with superpowers from birth, Boros honed these with time and experience. The villain even possesses regeneration, making defeat almost totally impossible. Enter Saitama.

3 Griffith — Beserk

Griffith is the supreme commander of the Midland Regular Army and the current leader of the reborn Band of the Falcon. Appearing in the popular series Berserk, the well-mannered, intellectual, demon fought alongside his mercenaries to end the Hundred-Year War and bring peace to the kingdom of Midland.

Griffith is one of the most intelligent tacticians on this list, however, because of his supernatural form, he possesses certain powers. Besides being an excellent swordsman and proficient in hand-to-hand combat, Griffith has fate and fortune almost always on his side due to his transcendence into Femto, as well as the ability for spatial manipulation, flight, and talking with the dead.

2 Beerus — Dragon Ball Super

Beerus is the God of Destruction of Universe 7 in Dragon Ball Super and the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods film. The omnipotent being is accompanied by his martial arts teacher and right hand, Whis. While Beerus was the main antagonist in Battle of Gods, the character appears in the God of Destruction Beerus Saga where he eventually becomes a supporting character in later sagas.

Beerus is in a league of his own, the God of Destruction uses his powers to destroy planets, yet has the capacity to obliterate entire solar systems with ease. Besides flight, Beerus’s Ki blast is his most common ability. However, this Ki blast is unlike others with the capability of destroying planets. Beerus is also immune to possession, poison, and when pushed to the limit can radiate his God of Destruction’s Wrath (multiple Ko blasts from his aura in all directions).

1 Zeno — Dragon Ball Super

Don’t let his child-like physical appearance fool you, Grand Zeno is the Omni-King, the supreme ruler of all the Multiverse and perhaps its strongest being. Appearing in Dragon Ball Super, the deity has a general indifference towards life, even destroying six of the eighteen universes after a bout of anger.

Unlike others on the list, Zeno is not a master tactician in the art of war. In fact, he does not fight. What Zeno does possess is the power to Erase. This power gives Zeno the ability to wipe out anything or everything in the blink of an eye without any effort, this includes individuals, planets, and universes. Because of this power, Zeno’s mere presence terrifies other deities as they frequently bow before him out of respect and fear.
