Top Ten Strongest Anime & Manga Villains

PLEASE NOTE: This list shows the most powerful evildoers in the history of manga and anime who have displayed impressive levels of fighting prowess and destructive capabilities, and also of note is that this list does not display the characters in order of strongest to weakest, the list is randomized in order to avoid any fan controversy.

Unlike the Top Ten Strongest Anime & Manga Protagonists list, this list allows characters with reality bending abilities, immortality, etc. since it is what the majority of villains strive for, but they must be unredeemed villains in order to qualify and must also not be born deities.

Here's a list of the Top Ten Strongest Anime & Manga Villains in the universe of Wikia Entertainment. If you think someone's missing from this list, post a link to their page at the bottom!

"Is there nobody on Earth more worthy to destroy…?"
The 7 beings who have sealed within them the fragments of the demonic god Shabranigdo, creator of black magic and all that is evil. Each of them are powerful beings imbued with the demonic soul of Shabranigdo which grants them near-limitless power but a corrupt heart.
Madara Uchiha
"Listen... In this world, whenever there is light, there are also shadows. As long as the concept of winners exist, there must also be losers. The selfish desire of wanting to maintain peace causes wars and hatred is born to protect love."

Sōsuke Aizen
"No one stands on the top of the world. Not you, not me, not even gods. But the unbearable vacancy of the throne in the sky is over. From now on...I will be sitting on it."
Dio Brando
"Can a monkey reach a human? You are but a monkey, JoJo!! Don't you Joestars ever give up?!"
"GOD! Answer my soul's call! Come forth! Yes... Come to me... I will no longer be bound by your rules! I'll drag you down to Earth, and make you a part of me!"
"Humans...Whatever happens to them..they have to eat!! No matter what sadness or pain, they have to chew it, swallow it, and keep eating...My only choice... is to constantly try to satisfy this maddeningly unrelenting appetite..."
"Trash that doesn't even know it's trash deserves to fall into the abyss."
"There's nothing unusual here…The appropriate one stands in the appropriate place after the appropriate ones have collapsed to the ground, defeated. There is nothing unexpected or odd about it. Because this is reality. Not one shred of uncertainty exists here. Not even fear, of course…"

I think Schrödinger from Hellsing should be included, because despite being a minor-ish enemy, he theoretically can't die from anything unless he believes that he can or will die from it, due to his power being absolute control over his own existance. He woul become all powerful by simply believing he is. His personality stops that, because he's incredibly loyal, and wouldn't change sides unless he had a stupidly good reason. world eater (talk) 14:36, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

I think Walpurgisnacht/????? should be on this list. Her mere appearance slaughters thousands in an instant, and it seems it is simply not possible to single-handedly kill her.

Accelerator definitely needs a spot on the list his vector transformation powers is similar to hundreds of philosopher stones (full metal alchemist reference)

I dont think kid buu is the strongest becose, Goku can reach super saiyain 4 in GT and in that form he has truble kiling omega shenron( a much stronger apponent as kid buu) so Omega shenron is the strongest.

ps. Broly cant be the strongest goku kild him whit super saiyan 1 think about it he can become 4

GT is not canon to the manga only to the anime... -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:09, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

Broly, he is the strongest

You chose Hollow Ichigo over Sosuke Aizen?

Aizen is way stronger then hollow ichigo and omega shenron is stronger then kid buu and rizan from yu yu hakusho is allso worthy of the list by far--Pein of akatsuki 17:48, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

I can't add Omega Shenron because he isn't canon, he only appeared in the GT anime. And Hollow Ichigo made the list because he is the evil half of the mighty protagonist then that means he'll be at equal strength to the powerful hero, but if a third guy asks for Aizen than the users shall happily have it, and as for Rizan he seems more like a neutral character to me than an actual villain... -The Forgotten Beast 19:35, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

Orochimaru (from Naruto) should be up there too. He's so beastly. If you count Sasuke Uchiha (from Naruto as well) as a villain he should be up there too. Exsiiron 20:40, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Madara's pretty much the big guy now and Kabuchimaru is just an underling in my opinion. -The Forgotten Beast 05:14, June 5, 2011 (UTC)
Based on recent events I might be willing to switch the two but first I need to see more. -The Forgotten Beast 02:47, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I would lower Hao personally. Read the real ending to agree or disagree with me. XDGatogirl12345 23:17, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Removed him. -The Forgotten Beast 05:14, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

Nakago from Fushigi Yuugi PTRP 16:38, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Whoever put Father on this list DEFINITELY knows taste. What other villain could to to the lengths to EAT GOD?! XD

Why thanks for the compliment! Truly his evil and power is quite frightening in my opinion. <:\ -The Forgotten Beast 05:14, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

How about Baby Vegeta?????his prowess of destruction is great!!!!!

Not canon, besides he was just using Vegeta's body and without it he's not much of a threat... -The Forgotten Beast 05:14, June 5, 2011 (UTC)


why dont you send me a membership card eh?zeref from fairytail rockssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!tygffffff!!!!!!!!!!!!

Membership accepted. -The Forgotten Beast 08:19, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

What about Broly? You could add characters from the same anime.........

Trust me if I could add him I would and he was actually my first choice when making this list but since he never appeared in the manga I had very little freedom in the matter, but since he does have official artwork by Akira Toriyama and he's not marked as a Filler Character on the wiki I could add him, but first I should wait if 2 more users ask for him, if they do I'll add Broly in a heartbeat. :) -The Forgotten Beast 02:25, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

you could also add admiral akainu from one piece.

The admirals are powerful but their power pales when compared to a Yonkou like Whitebeard, Akainu almost got owned by him. -The Forgotten Beast 02:47, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I think you should have to chose Phantom from Marchen Awakens Romance.

but even if madara plans to become his host he isnt the host so add the ten tails

What about Broly he wiped out a whole galaxy in about 5 seconds.

I'd take off Kid Buu for Brollie the Legendary Super Saiyan because he's way better

Fine, the Broly fans win. -The Forgotten Beast 02:47, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

What about Accelerator from To aru majutsu no index?

the ten-tailed beast (jubi) from naruto is stronger than madara!

Madara plans to become its host so might as well count them as one person. -The Forgotten Beast 02:47, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I guess Zeref from Fairy Tail wouldn't count, as he is a bit "godmodded" as he has the power to kill people with his magic. Then I would suggest Acnologia to be second, as it's said that its mere roar attack caused an entire nation to be destroyed. {{SUBST:User:Natsu11/Sig}} 06:46, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

You added Broly but you didn't add Super Saiyan 4 Goku? Both of them are made by Akira Toriyama and both are canon. Sure SS4 didn't appear in the manga, but neither did Broly. Sometimes somethings aren't revealed in the given plot, but are revealed later yet are still official.

Hey!.... Put Kid Buu back, he is the most dangerous out of all of Majin Buu's forms. He's also the original, and purest form of Buu. Broly? Get that out of here.

AAARGH!!! Would you people make up your minds?! First you want Buu then Broly now Buu again?! Which is it?! I might as well hold a poll to end this insanity once and for all!!! -The Forgotten Beast 06:05, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
If I may say something, Broly is very powerfull, yes. Probably even more than Buu (remeber, buu only survived that long be he could regenerate, Broly couldn't). And very popular. And while he appears only in movies, I bleieve he was designed by Akira Toriyama. Plus, his movie acually fits in the time line of the series. Then again, Kid Buu was the last villain of the series (manga) and one who is definatly canon. Anyway, my suggestion is to only use manga characters, to avoid any future conflict. 10:34, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
That's how I thought originally but people kept bugging me about "make it Broly" or "Make it Omega Shenron" neither of those guys appeared in the manga but when users started requesting Broly more I caved... My vote goes for Buu since he is 100% canon, but I'm still going to hold a poll so fans dont bug me about this in the future... augh... and then theres the people who bug me about SS4, he was GT only! It was barely canon! So what do you think? SS3? SS4? or Vigito? -The Forgotten Beast 10:39, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
I'd say Vegito. He is stronger than SS3 and very likely even stronger than SS4; so it's the most diplomatic choice. 11:13, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
vegito ss1
also add buu again please broly is not canon

I made a poll, now decide once and for all! -The Forgotten Beast17:13, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

sorry to say it but i was the person who asked for broly i really dont seriously want him. i try to register but the server doesnt allow me to do so also vegito ss1 and a new picture i also askedzeref

Then why did you ask for him? -__- Also who cares if its SS1 Vigito or not, either way the dastard's near invincible... besides there are no good enough SS1 pictures that I could find. Also remember to sign your comments with "~~~~" please... -The Forgotten Beast 15:57, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
you can add the picture of ss vegito by going to his page on dragonball wiki. Add the picture you will find in apperance section
forgotten beast please remove the poll! buu was acceppted a long time ago. And another thing, in this list instead of kid buu i got majin buu when i clicked n the link. 07:24, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

What the...not even one mention of Naraku!?

What about Tetsuo from Akira? His physic powers are unrivaled? Bereisgreat Shout! 15 edits on this Wiki   22:19, April 9, 2012 (UTC)

Good suggestion, I'll look into it! -The Forgotten Beast 00:03, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
Dio Brando is easily above Aizen and Tobi. Hades from Saint Seiya. The Counter-Actor is the strongest antagonist in anime. Satan from Bastard!!
These aren't in order of strongest to weakest. I just put them in order of favorite pictures. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:08, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

Yuji Sakai from Shakugan no Shana, after he merges with the God, Sairei no Hebi (Snake of the Festival). Also Sabrac, who can only be defeated if the area around him is destroyed. Aassdddai talk 09:12, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

You should add Juhabach from bleach, I think he is much stronger than Aizen

I'll consider Juhabach depending on how the story plays out. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:08, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

first of all i nominate blackmage zeref from fairy tail he seems to be much stronger than achnologia

then i nominate the ten tails from naruto and also juhabach from bleach

I'll consider Juhabach depending on how the story plays out. As for the Ten Tails he just strikes me as a being of chaos like a wild animal, not a truly evil creature. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:08, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

omega shenron from dbz

Not canon, I've said this a million times...-The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:08, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

What about Ajimu Najimi from medaka box she is 3,402,193,822,311 years old and has 12,858,051,967,633,865 skills in total + she is amazing . -unknown user  December 29 , 2012

I'll consider it.-The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:08, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
What about Griffith from Berserk?
No. ಠ_ರೃ -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 13:08, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
What about Bills, he beats ssj3 goku with one cop to the neck
Well... the movie seems to be canon... and he did beat SSJ3 with one finger, something no one's ever done... So yeah I guess he's on the list. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 15:18, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
What about Meruem, Juhabach instead of Aizen now that he has Zanka no Tachi, The Ten Tails insted of Madara, Raoh, Griffith, Zeref sounds way stronger than Acnologia, Yomi and/or Sensui(come one, Sensui turned a mountain to rubble), Hao Asakura or the Millenium Earl.
Very strong, but I'm going to wait and see if someone stronger comes along in HxH. I'm waiting for Bleach to end to make my decision. Ten Tails it is then. Raoh from Kenichi? Griffith? Zeref it is then, although I was hoping to wait and see wtf his deal is and if he is still evil, I only add truly evil or neutral evil villains to this list. Yomi from YuYu doesn't strike me as evil. If more people ask for Sensui you got a deal. Hao used to be on this list but all I ever got were complaints about him being on it. I've lost track and interest in D. Grayman. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 11:39, April 27, 2013 (UTC)
Raoh from Fist of the North Star, Grifith is from Berserk, another thing is you havent changed the list and Kid Buu is still there, despite adding Bills.
—Preceding unsigned comment added by Lightning244 (talkcontribs) 00:56, April 30, 2013
I decided to keep them both, they're both ridiculously powerful and can match with any of these evil divine-wannabes easily. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 05:18, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
Z from Tenchi verse,Anti-Spirals  from Gurren Lagann and Hades from Saint Seiya are some of anime strongest villains. -Mike
I also want Z, Anti Spiral and Hades added, but also such as the Counter-Actor, Shabranigdo, Noein, Dragon God, Zeedmillenniummon and Mugen as they are pretty much overpowered
Z used to be on this list but my friends told me to remove him since he was basically reborn at the end of his story and was hence no longer evil and was made powerless and also something about time and space that I didn't care to memorize. Anti-Spiral I think I already talked about him. Hades was on this list but since he's not entirely original having being based on the underworld deity from ancient Greece it felt odd having him with a group of completely original characters not based on anyone from our world. Counter Actor has two personalities, one that's destructive and evil, and the one that's Ayeka's mother so I don't know if she counts as 100% villainous material. If more people ask for Shabranigdo I'll consider it. Noein was on the list but I was told to remove him a while back because of some argument I had with some otakus on a forum about his physical weakness and other complex crap. Can you be a little more precise and "Dragon God"? ZeedMillenniummon it is then but only for a limited time since he technically originates from a video game not an anime, but did appear in the anime so it counts for now. Who's Mugen? -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 05:18, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
So basically, this is the "Top Ten Strongest Anime & Manga Villains (except for the ones I don't like and  are so OP that would remove my favorite villains from this list)"? Alright, Roger that.
No you sarcastic ass. The list is still improving and I am still taking suggestions so if you wanted to help suggest something next time. You can't expect one person to reply instantly and know every single fictional anime and manga villain in existence do you? Also aside from Midora, Dio Brando and maybe Father, I don't like any of the guys on this list or there anime and mangas especially not Aizen and Bleach... Also I preferred Dragonball when it didn't have the Z or the aliens... Anyway remember to sign your comments with "~~~~" people! -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 05:28, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
Tobi in jinchuuriki form, he's stronger than madara
How about we wait until the story progresses a bit more. I'm sure that Tobi is stronger now but let's just wait and see what happens first okay? -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 05:18, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

Good Lord so many replies... ):| -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 05:18, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

I believe it is Dragon God from Project A-Ko and is adding Hao Asakura, Neo from Digimon, Queen Metalia from Sailor Moon possible? Well seeing the reply from the other guy Noein for example wipes his ass with the current list.

I understand that both Bills and Kid Buu are both monumentally powerful individuals who could easily take on anyone from the list, but it is a little unfair to have 2 choices from the same series, that's why I believe Sensui from Hakusho should take Kid Buu's spot. Konron from Bastard!!, Faster than light and has Planet+ destructive power. Or Satan who is also from Bastard!! who has Galaxy+ destructive power. "Lightning244"

So I was just wondering Satan is stronger than Konron, did u just reject him due to him technically having Godlike abilities, because if so I can kinda understand. Anyways I think Sensui should either replace Father, he has massive power, but no speed or physical strength to completely back it up. Asurafgfdgf's stats around the board just don't quite stack up. Oh and r u waiting for my reply to change Buu? "Lightning244"

Juha Bach from Bleach is missing

Let's wait for the series to end to decide that. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 18:07, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

This list is annoying me, I mean not even Z from Tenchi Muyo. Not even Satan from Bastard. Not even Noein from Noein. Not even Shabranigdo from Slayers. Why aren't any of these on the list? All of them could wipe out the current list effortlessly and yet they're not on the list. This is quite irritating as the title of the page is then wrong since they're not the strongest villains. It should be renamed something like "The most popular anime and manga villains" because they're certainly not strongest.

Z is not on the list because when he died he was reborn and his evil self erased, in effect no longer making him a villain (which is why I'm planning to remove Buu soon since he was reborn as Uub). I already said that I'll be adding Shabranigdo and maybe Satan soon dumbass, I just haven't had the time, I have a thing called a job and responsibilities. Noein is not on the list due to being erased from time and space rather than just dying or being banished (plus his alternate selves are all good, so the good outweighs the bad in this case). Also I'm surprised you didn't mention the Anti-Spiral or Hades, but maybe you read my arguments before hand this time... >_> -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 19:07, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

If you want add Perfect Cell and take out buu Cell is really strong and the only way to kill him is destroying all cell in his body? btw nice list you have good taste in anime

Misogi Kumagawa

(One of his skill)All Fiction (大嘘憑き, Ōru Fikushon): Kumagawa's Minus allows him to deny aspects of reality; to make anything "nothing". Because of this, he can undo anything that has been damaged, and thus he has no qualms about being destructive. However, he has stated that once he removes something with his Minus, he cannot return it as it has become "fiction". His ability can even reverse his own death as well as the death of others. He admits that he doesn't have full control of his power because, unless he's careful, the entire world would become nothing. It should be noted that All Fiction did not work on Emukae's Minus, Raff-Rafflesia, instead only erasing the unwanted factor that it had no off switch; it appears that All Fiction cannot erase another Minus. Kumagawa acquired All Fiction three years prior to the beginning of the series, when he attacked Ajimu. At that time, he lost his original Minus, but instead gained Ajimu's Hundred Gauntlets, which developed into All Fiction. In preparation for his fight with Medaka, Kumagawa regained his original Minus, but lost All Fiction as Hundred Gauntlets was taken back by Ajimu. After being killed by Munakata, Kumagawa regains All Fiction and can now use both All Fiction and Book Maker. However, after losing Hundred Gauntlets, All Fiction is significantly weaker, in that it can no longer make things with strong emotional value become nothing, such as wounds that one is proud of or thinks they need to keep. Ajimu later restores Hundred Gauntlets to Kumagawa, stopping the deterioration of All Fiction, and restoring it to full potency.


Misogi became good near the end of the series. I don't add villains who've redeemed themselves. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 21:22, November 18, 2013 (UTC)

R u convinced that Madara should be on the list now? Not that Obito is bad or anything (he turned good tho)

I dislike villains who reform simply from a few words... so much for his resolve. Anyway, yeah he's out and Madara's in since Obito's paralyzed, reformed and semi-dead while Madara's been revived and back to full power... for now. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 07:45, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

Why didn't you add Konron? -Lightning244

I haven't been able to find a good picture of him. Also I kinda wanna wait a bit. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 08:04, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

What about Anti-Spiral, Hades and Chaos (Sailor Moon)?

I've already discussed Hades and Anti-Spiral before. I wish people would read before commenting. And Chaos is not considered much according to forums, discussions, peers and references. -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 16:10, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

How can neither Sakazuki or Marshal D. Teach(Blackbeard) from OP be on here? Sakazuki is able to practically create an cataclysm with his powers, and Blackbeard has the ability to tilt battlefields, absorb anything, and cause massive earthquakes and tremors with each hit. and

Okay... So where's Sensui at? I know he's at least Asura. And he can probably take Madara too. Hell maybe even Zeref. -Lighting244

I think Meruem(Quimera Ant King) from HunterXHunter is one of the strongest enemies I've seen in anime/manga.
