The 15 Most Powerful Anime Heroes

What is it that makes a convincing anime hero, anyway? Their backstory, their motivation, their final form? When it comes down to it, audiences are compelled by protagonists who exude charisma and power – the kind of guys who’d be there for you in a pinch, but you wouldn’t want to be around once they got angry.

Throughout the years, we’ve witnessed anime characters that have far surpassed power levels of over 9,000, whether it be by ki energy, an intangible mystical force, or through their skills with a sword. This truth alone allows it to be highly difficult to measure a character’s power versus another, however the following characters listed are the ones we’ve seen demonstrate the highest levels of capability.

We’ll be taking into account strength feats each character has accomplished in their respective animes and not their mangas. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the most powerful heroes in anime. You won’t need your scouters for this list.

Being born the “Prince of all Saiyans” has destined this hot-headed warrior for some next level stuff.

Being born of the indigenous alien race has allowed Vegeta to surpass the levels of ordinary humans. He also possesses the innate ability to become naturally stronger after falling in combat, along with any of those that share his bloodline. Perhaps the only thing that matches the warrior’s tenacity is his over the top ego, however this trait is also responsible for leading him to where he is today.
