The 20 Most Powerful Anime Vampires Of All Time, Ranked

Voting Rules

Vote up the strongest vampires in anime.

When most people think about the strongest anime vampires, the first characters that come to mind are probably Alucard from Hellsing and Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. While the two of them are spectacularly powerful, they aren't the only vampires worth paying attention to.

From Shinobu Oshino of the Monogatari series to D from Vampire Hunter D, there are plenty of absurdly strong blood-sucking monsters to get excited about. Most have classic powers like super strength, regeneration, and the ability to transform others into vampires. But some have unique skills, such as the power to warp reality to their liking or the power to travel through time. No matter what they can do, you do not want to find yourself battling against these vampiric foes.

  • Alucard - 'Hellsing'

    When most people think about powerful anime vampires, Alucard is the first one to come to mind. He works for Hellsing, a vampire-slaying organization, because annihilating his own kind gives him the chance to flex his substantial strength. 

    We can't list all of his powers, but here are a few choice ones: He can ignore the effects of gravity, control the weather, control other people's souls by drinking their blood, teleport, hypnotize, shape-shift, and use telekinesis. He's not even subject to standard vampire weaknesses like sunlight - he can walk around during the daytime with no repercussions.

    Shalltear Bloodfallen is a vampire and floormaster who was created by Peroroncino. Like a lot of characters in Overlord, she's totally OP. As a Level 100 fighter, her stat total is a staggering 732. 

    She can execute a wide range of spells, which include one that turns other people into vampires, one that converts all damage done to her into health, and one where she forms a giant weapon that can track her target with perfect accuracy. Even Ainz himself has praised her power.

    D is a dhampir - that is, a half-vampire, half-human. He spends his time hunting down members of the Nobility, a group of vampires who have overtaken humanity. He's considered to be one of the strongest vampires in the series. 

    He has a wide range of more basic powers like superhuman strength and the ability to regenerate himself, but he also has some unique powers like the ability to warp reality to his will and the ability to turn others into his servants by biting them.

    Cadis Etrama Di Raizel - 'Noblesse'

    Cadis Etrama Di Raizel, also known as Raizel, is a Noble - a species that is in many ways quite similar to vampires. But his role is a little different than the rest of the Nobles - he's the Noblesse, which means it's his job to observe the other Nobles and decide whether to protect them or punish them. 

    He's considered the strongest Noble in the series. He has a plethora of impressive abilities. His defense is top-notch - he can create a force field out of his aura to nullify all incoming attacks. He can use several forms of telekenisis and telepathy. He can create cyclones out of blood, fly on wings made of blood, and control the individual blood cells in his opponents' bodies. He can create miniature black holes that his opponent will be sucked into. Yeah, you do not want to mess with this guy.

  • Dio Brando - 'JoJo's Bizarre Adventure'

    As the main villain of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Dio Brando is also one of its most powerful characters. He has so much going on that being a vampire isn't even his main thing, but it does give him plenty of impressive skills, such as sucking blood in order to restore his own strength, creating zombies, regeneration, and shooting out eye beams. 

    However, his best-known power is his Stand, which he'd have regardless of whether or not he was a vampire. His Stand is called the World, and it allows him to stop time, which helps him easily destroy his opponents while they're frozen.

  • Abel Nightroad - 'Trinity Blood'

    Abel Nightroad isn't exactly a classic vampire - he's a Crusnik, which is a complicated concept that we won't get into here. But he has more than enough vampiric traits to qualify - and he also has nano-machines. 

    As a regular human, he has super strength, speed, and endurance. But when he activates the nano-bots, he gains several impressive abilities, such as the power to form a scythe from his blood, giant wings he can fly with, the ability to manipulate electricity, and a drastically improved regenerative capacity.
