#5 Kaido (one Piece)
Luffy is not even close to being the strongest One Piece character, despite being the series’ main protagonist. Even if there are many others, including Rocks D. Xebec, Big Mom, and Akainu, who at the very least deserve to be included in that discussion, Kaido is probably the rightful owner of that distinction.
There are many reasons why people always back Kaido, but his capacity to change into a massive dragon ranks very highly on the list. He has also shown himself against some of the most challenging characters in the series, notably Big Mom, and is proficient in using all three versions of Haki. Even though Luffy eventually succeeds in defeating him, it takes him many years and a little bit of luck to do it.
#4 Anos Voldigoad (The Misfit of Demon King Academy)
When compared to some of the other well-liked anime series that have spread to the west, the anime Misfit of Demon King Academy may be relatively new, but its central character Anos has been around for more than 2,000 years. He is a reincarnation of the first and most potent Demon King, which entails a number of advantageous advantages and advantages in fight.
Anos is not only unfathomably quick and strong, but he also has access to a vast variety of Magic, including the power to destroy the invincible with only his gaze. He is also capable of using Venuzdonoa’s magic sword, which was forged using the remains of the first God of Destruction. The blade is as powerful as Anos’ magical eyes and can cut through almost anything.
#3 Giorno Giovanno (Jojo's bizzare adventures)
Some could contend that Jotaro Kujo is the most powerful character in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and while the Stardust Crusaders protagonist is indeed formidable, he truly can’t compete with Giorno Giovanna, the main character of Part 5. Every other stand, including Star Power, is put to shame by the latter’s Gold Experience Requiem stand ability, which is simply way too potent.
GER can be activated in a situation when time no longer exists and has the ability to reverse actions. Additionally, it can function without Giorno, so even if he were to sustain a mortal injury during combat, his stance would immediately revive him. He is therefore almost immortal and possesses the kind of firepower required to truly make that count.
#2 son goku (dragon ball z)
Although it’s debatable whether Zeno is the strongest Dragon Ball character, there is a significant distinction between strength and power. Zeno might be able to end the world with the snap of his tiny fingers, but given his diminutive size, he probably wouldn’t fare well in a fistfight. On the other hand, Goku feels well at home in such circumstances.
The Super Saiyan has repeatedly shown himself to be Earth’s saviour, triumphing over nearly every challenge he has ever encountered. Saiyan blood makes him stronger after defeat, while Ultra Instinct gives him access to the Power of the Gods. He’s only going to get stronger as he learns to control that power, like he has for the last 35 years.
#1 Saitama (one punch man)
It’s safe to infer that Saitama is meant to stand in for the strongest anime character of all time given the satirical nature of One Punch Man, and it’s somewhat challenging to refute that claim. Saitama is able to destroy his adversaries using a single attack without ever breaking a sweat, unlike Goku and other anime heroes who are frequently pushed past their breaking point.
It’s possible to argue that other anime characters might succeed if introduced to the One Punch Man universe, and this may very well be the case. Ultimately, though, almost every other anime hero has, at some point or another, been revealed to be weaker than other characters in their respective universes; hence, it is likely that this will happen again at some point in the future. But Saitama has always been first, and he most likely always will be.
