Want to end the debate of who the strongest anime character to ever exist is? You only have to do one thing...vote on the poll below! For this list we want to hear your opinion on who the most powerful anime character of all time. These guys probably beat up the smartest anime characters all the time in high school--if they ever went to one. Both heroes and villains are included below, so you can vote for everyone from Madara Uchiha to Ichigo Kurosaki. The discussion of the strongest anime character is always shrouded in controversey, so consider the following: just because a character is physically more powerful doesn't mean they are stronger than another overall. Take Light Yagami vs Monkey D. Luffy, for example. Obviously Luffy could gum-gum pistol him into oblivion, but what if Light wrote his name down in the death note? That's an instant death with just the stroke of a pen. When you see names like Vegeta below, assume that they would be fighting at their very highest potential.
