The strong characters in an anime often make or break the series. Some have the power to be at the top of everyone, some can settle battles before they even begin, and some have the power even to control people with their abilities. But the question remains, which anime characters do Japanese anime fans think is the strongest?
For this reason, Japan’s biggest ranking website, Goo Ranking, asked anime fans from Japan to rank the strongest anime character through a poll. Almost 9,000 Japanese anime fans participated in this poll, and 36,000 votes were collected to declare the Top 37 strongest characters in anime.
Here are the top 37 strongest anime characters chosen by Japanese anime fans.
(Note: In Japan, anime is a lot more broad media, so adults also consume this media a lot. For this reason, anime characters from many old series are also mentioned in the list).
- Anime Title: A Certain Magical Index
Othinus is the first antagonist of A Certain Magical Index series. She is a Magic God and has an eye patch on her right eye as she sacrificed it for drinking from the Well of Wisdom. She is also the former leader of the magic organization GREMLIN.
Othnius, being a God, is a perfect magician that can do anything in others’ imagination. But this power is also her weakness, as others could imagine her “failing,” which could bring her downfall. She is seeking the Gungnir, a weapon that will help her remake the world.
Othnius also uses a crossbow that can shoot almost 10 arrows at a time and also has a Bone Boat that helps her travel around the world very fast.
Because Othinus was the main antagonist, it is not surprising that her personality was pretty ruthless and cold. She tried everything in her might to get anything she wanted, and she was also very cunning.
- Anime Title: Sakura Momoko Gekijou: Coji-Coji
Coji-Coji is the main protagonist of this show and the person whose life we see in every episode. He is a mysterious being who has godly powers and can do anything. He is seen in every episode just eating and doing nothing much.
Coji-Coji has godly powers which give him the ability to erase the whole universe and even live for hundreds of thousands of years. But despite all that, he prefers to live in peace and spend his everyday life lazing around doing nothing but sleep, and eat.
The personality of Coji-Coji is just like mentioned before. It is carefree and lazy and he just enjoys his daily life.
35. Yuujirou Hanma (The Ogre)
- Anime Title: Grappler Baki (2001)
Yuujirou is the main antagonist and the father of the main protagonist, Baki, in the series. He is known to be the strongest human being to ever exist. His aim in life is to make his son strong enough so that he can beat him in life (in strength).
What makes Yuujirou one of the strongest in anime is his inhuman strength and resilience. One time, he has an encounter with a Woolly Mammoth Elephant that was the size of a building. But his bare hands were enough to beat the crap out of this monster and this shows how deserving he is of this spot on the list. Yuujirou’s mental intelligence is also second to none and his speed of movement is also godly.
It wouldn’t surprise you to know that Yuujioru is extremely arrogant and proud. He has no mercy in his acts and is even willing to kill others who annoy him too much, or if he feels too challenged.
34. Ainz Ooal Gown (Momonga)
Ainz is the main protagonist and the person who reincarnated into another world in the anime. He is the most powerful mage in the anime and also is the highest-ranked Almighty Supreme Being out of the 21 Supreme Beings. In his old world, he was just a game player who escaped from reality while spending time gaming.
When you can’t tell all the abilities of a character in a single go, you should know how strong he is. Ainz has a whopping 718 spells (normal amount: ~100 spells) which are divided into different tiers from 1-10 and an unknown special tier featuring godly spells.
He can also summon creatures ranging from low-level to powerful creatures. He has an unlimited amount of equipment which is all-powerful on its own but Ainz can make them even stronger. If this does not impress you, we don’t know what will!
Due to his older life, Ainz is very cautious and is always looking to avoid any trouble, despite being the strongest being in the anime. Even if he has to lie to his followers and do something not suitable for someone of his status, he tries to avoid trouble. He is also very competitive and respects his followers’ loyalty.
33. Meruem (The King)
- Anime Title: Hunter x Hunter
Mereum is the final antagonist of the Chimera Ant Arc of this series and the strongest villain to arrive in the anime yet. He is the last child of the Chimera Ant Queen and was cherished by her mother the most. Despite being only 40 days old, he had a monstrous strength like none other.
Mereum was considered the strongest even before he was born. He is considered one of the strongest in anime because he stayed alive after the strongest hunter, Netero, died while trying to kill Mereum. He has exceptional strength and all, but the unique feature about him was his intellect, as he could beat the world champions of complex games by learning their respective game in just one or two days and mastering it.
Mereum was a cruel and cold person. He didn’t respect anyone as he considered himself the strongest and the perfect being. He could destroy the kingdom very easily and be overpowered. The only person he showed sympathy and respect for was a poor, blind girl Komugi, who was very good at a board game Mereum was obsessed with.
32. Aleister Crowley
- Anime Title: A Certain Magical Index
Aleister is considered the greatest magician to ever exist in the lore of the series and is considered the overall biggest antagonist, just like Accelerator. He left the magical world and decided to work in the field of science, despite being the strongest in the field of magic.
Being the most powerful magician in the franchise, Aleister’s magical prowess is like none other. His exceptional knowledge of magic and technology has made him able to create two personalities of himself at the same time.
Besides these attacks, he has numerous amounts of spells too which are too powerful. For instance, his Big Bang Bomb is an attack that has the same amount of destructive power as The Big Bang and he can control this with just his hand.
Aleister developed a hatred for God when his parents treated him just to be “proper” in society and being religious. Due to this, he became ignorant and rude to everything, and his personality was affected. He was taught about God in schools very strictly, bringing him to his present state of despising everything.

In his human form, Ichigo looks like a typical teenager, but in reality, he has in-human abilities. From having enhanced strength to having a vast spiritual power, he is certainly not a human when you consider these aspects. And in his Shinigami form, Ichigo is another being.
He has a unique Bankai as mentioned before and his swordplay is godly, which can defeat even the strongest enemy. His strength also gets buffed in this form as he is seen taking down three Shinigami people with a single punch.
Ichigo’s personality has developed from a caring and trusting little child to now being a short-tempered teenager who is impulsive. He is strong-willed yet ignorant at the same time. When it comes to fighting, Ichigo has pride in himself and wants to win against his opponent at any cost.

Other than that, he uses Power Impact, in which he creates an energy bomb and this keeps chasing his target until he hits it. Jiren’s godly speed makes his punches almost invisible.
Jiren is mostly quiet and never likes to socialize a lot. He does speak when he is interested in something. He has a strong sense to protect his universe and has no selfish aims. He does not have any Saiyan Powers but he is still stronger than most of them.

Inumaki is in his second year at the Jujutsu High School and is a very promising Jujutsu Sorcerer. Because of his cursed technique, he can only talk to people in vague words like saying rice dish names.
The cursed speech technique used by Inumaki made him a beginner-level Jujutsu Sorcerer when he was still in high school, which shows how strong he is. All he has to do is say something, and the other person is compelled to do so. The harsher the order he gives, the harsher will be the after-effects on his body. You know someone is powerful when they cannot even speak to their friends in a normal way!
Inumaki has a very caring personality. He cares for his underclassmen and likes to interact with them. He is also considered one of the most powerful students at Jujutsu High School. He has a pretty jolly nature and likes to joke a lot, but when he is serious, he means business!

But what makes him different from other espers is his 100% state (using his esper powers to the fullest) and his ???% state (a mysterious sinister state that he enters when knocked unconscious). The former state results when he feels emotion to its fullest, mostly anger, and during this, he is the strongest esper in the series.

- Anime Title: Dragon Ball Super
Beerus is the God of Destruction of Earth’s universe, Universe 7, and the initial antagonist of the Super series of this anime. He loves to visit planets and test their cuisine.

Being the second most powerful being of Universe 7, Beerus is certainly a ruthless character in Dragon Ball Verse.

He was one of the first friends that the protagonist, Subaru, met in the new world and he helped him in the initial arc. He later came as a challenger for Subaru in the Royal Selection, as they both served different princesses.
Arguably the strongest character of the series, Reinhard is certainly an overpowered character when you first witness him in the series. What makes him this overpowered is his ability to gain Divine Protection. Divine Protection grants him endless power when he needs it, and this is the reason he is one of the strongest characters in anime.
Other than that, he is a powerful swordsman and has many abilities like Mana Drainage and Enhanced Stealth.
Reinhard is very kind despite being so powerful. You expect him to be arrogant, but he is pretty down-to-Earth and loves to know about other people. His power is monstrous to this point where he unleashes only a small fraction of it to avoid destruction.
- Anime Title: Dragon Ball Super
Whis is the guiding angel of the God of Destruction of Universe 7, Beerus. He is also a martial artist trainer and takes on the protagonists later on in the series to train them. He never leaves his attendant alone and is above the God of Destruction in this list for a reason!
The strongest being in Universe 7, Whis does not flex his power that much when he is with his master, Beerus. His most prominent trait is his “Materialization” trait which allows him to create, transport, and vanish any material object.
He also can use Ultra-Instinct just like other angels but has not mastered it. He is the trainer of Goku and Vegeta for a reason.
Whis has a very humble personality, unlike his master Beerus. He likes to help others and give them the most he can. He can be mad sometimes but still tries to be useful to anyone. His eternal loyalty to his master Beerus is praiseworthy.

Being the most arrogant about his power, Satoru is certainly worth his arrogance. Not only did he beat a special grade curse (extremely powerful) easily, but he also had the guts to challenge the King of Curses, Sakuna.
He is one of the strongest characters in anime because of his immense cursed energy and his Six Eyes. Gojo keeps them covered because they let him see too much, and this tires him out. Other than that, he can use his inherited Limitless Domain Expansion and can also use a wide variety of Cursed Techniques.
Gojou has the personality of a little kid. He loves to annoy his colleagues and sometimes even the principal to the point that they even want to kill him. But when he is serious, no one can come as close to even touch him, because of the void that covers him.

Doraemon’s personality is very immature. If he is given something as a reward, he does the work he is given very enthusiastically, and if he is fed up with something, he will never do it. He often fights with Nobita, but they always make up with each other at the end
4. Son Goku
- Anime Title: Dragon Ball (series)
Goku is probably the most overpowered character (according to Dragon Ball fans) in anime. He is a Saiyan (alien species with a human body and a tail) who was sent to Earth by his parents when the Saiyan planet was about to be destroyed. He was found by a human on Earth and he look after him until he died.
“Can he beat Goku, Though?”-Dragon Ball Fans’ Famous Dialogue.
Famous for challenging the strongest people in the universe, Goku is the only mortal to awaken Ultra-Instinct (the techniques awakened by Gods). Not only has he awakened almost all the Super Saiyan forms till now, but he has also mastered some other transformations, making him an interesting creature in the eyes of the Gods.
Goku is also the friend of Zeno, the king of everything that exists. Although he is still looking for powerful people to fight, he certainly made it to the top 4 of this list quite easily.
Goku’s personality is simple, and all he thinks about is fighting. He is pretty airheaded in other matters and his decision-making is based solely upon his ability to fight other strong people. He even challenges heavenly being just for fun.
- Anime Title: One Punch Man
Saitama is the main protagonist of the series and the person who can K.O. any enemy with just a single punch. At the start of the series, he saves a little kid from a monster and decides to become a professional hero. He becomes bald later on and just wants to live a normal hero life where he just saves people occasionally and the rest of the time, he does nothing.
When everything is settled with just a single punch, nothing more is needed to say. Saitama not only has a Godly punch, but his physic and other attributes are also all buffed up. From having a speed that rivals the strongest creatures in the universe to have the body of a body-builder, he has achieved all this by following a simple diet plan and routine. I guess it’s not that hard to be a strong character these days!
Saitama has a laid-back personality. He likes to stay away from popularity and loves to enjoy a quiet life. He hardly gets angry at people and beats everyone without putting any thought into it. But when he is mad, he is another being.
2. Rimuru Tempest
- Anime Title: That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime
Rimuru is the protagonist of this anime series and the person who gets reincarnated as a slime in another world. His real name in the previous world was Mikami Satoru, a male contractor working for a company. Satoru gets stabbed by a random thief, dies, and is reincarnated as a slime in a new world.
Becoming a Demon Lord just to save his friends, Rimuru is certainly a strong character that deserved the #2 spot on this list. If he was not powerful enough as a slime that could do anything from absorbing legendary creatures to doing lethal attacks, Rimuru also becomes a Demon Lord to resurrect his murdered friends. This should be enough for you to realize how overpowered this little blob of slime is!
Rimuru is pretty caring to his servants and loved ones. He usually has a very cheerful and fun personality, but if his loved ones get sacrificed, he becomes pretty dangerous. He enjoys living life peacefully in his room and avoiding violence.
1. Zeno (Omni King)
- Anime Title: Dragon Ball Super
The King of Kings, the God of Gods, and the Commander of Rulers, Grand Zeno is the #1 voted strongest anime character ever to exist as voted by Japanese Anime Fans. He is the reported strongest character to ever exist in the Dragon Ball Franchise. Grand Priest is his guide angel and he is the ruler of every God in every Universe.
From destroying planets as a joke to removing universes because they didn’t look good as a number, Zeno is certainly deserving of this spot. He has all the abilities of a God of Destruction but is more advanced, for instance, Zeno has Erase which is just like the “Hakai” of Beerus but Zeno’s techniques remove something instantly as compared to “Hakkai”.
Zeno also has a fun habit in that he likes to mimic others’ attacks, for instance, Zeno imitates Goku’s Kamehameha.
Just like his appearance, Zeno has the personality of a little kid. He has a blank expression on his face all the time and smiles whenever he feels excited. He is currently ruling everything with his future self, which Son Goku introduced him to after he came back from the future.
