25 Anime Characters Who Are Way Stronger Than They Look

Looks can be deceiving, and nothing proves that more than anime characters who are stronger than they look. These characters might appear to be cute, weak, or even straight-up ridiculous, but the last thing you want to do is get on their bad side.

Rimuru Tempest of That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime might seem like a simple slime, but hardly anybody has faced him in battle and come close to winning. If you catch Escanor of The Seven Deadly Sins at night, you'll probably think that he's a total pushover, but once daytime hits he gets a huge power-up. And of course, there's Nezuko Kamado of Demon Slayer, who spends most of her time sleeping and being generally precious but will absolutely annihilate anybody who threatens her brother or the other humans she's chosen to protect.

There are more high-powered but adorable anime characters where they come from. Which ones are your favorites?
