List RulesVote up the anime characters who are so powerful their abilities become silly.

We all know those anime series that have characters that are just way too overpowered. Characters that can take people out with one single punch. Characters that can fly and even become Gods themselves (if they aren't one already) seemingly out of nowhere. They're just way too powerful for their own good. This list is a collection of anime characters who have so much strength, mentally and/or physically, that it's just ridiculous. Vote up the anime guys and gals who have a silly amount of power.

When a character in a video game has too much power, they usually get nerfed. When a character in an anime has too much power, they nerf everyone (and everything) else. Brain power and physical power can make a character so OP that you start wondering if they have any sort of real weakness or anything that can actually stop them at all. It can get downright frustrating when an anime character is too overpowered, especially when you're rooting against them.

  • The main character and star superhero of One Punch Man, Saitama, trained for only 3 years to become the world's strongest man. Well, now he is and can defeat any enemy with just- you guessed it-  one single punch. Gigantic, terrifying monsters will litereally explode just from him punching them.

    He's constantly on the hunt to find someone or something that can prove to be a challenge for him, but with his OP punch, a challenge is hard to find. Good luck dude.

    Too powerful?

    This giant skeleton dude doesn't just look super scary for no reason- he's scary looking because he's an overpowered force of destruction that could crush the world underneath his pinky toe bone if he wanted to. 

    Ainz Ooal Gown, formerly known as Momonga from Overlord, is a powerful, guild-leading wizard who can't be harmed by any physical attacks unless the weapons are actually able to crush his bones.

    Shiba Tatsuya is a totally overpowered high school student from the anime The Irregular at Magic High School. His God-tier powers represent something like a living weapon of mass destruction.

    As just a human who wields magic, there's no way he should be as indestructible as he is throughout the entire series.

    Too powerful?
  • Izayoi Sakamaki is the main protagonist of Mondaiji tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru So Desu Yo? (Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?). He's known for being an overpowered teenager that can single handedly take down Gods and Demon Kings like it's no big deal.

    He also gets bored and reckless and does things like threatens to destroy the world if nobody can find him in hide and seek.
