List RulesVote up the 'Fast & Furious' characters you'd want riding at your side.

As one of the highest-grossing and longest-running franchises in modern cinema, The Fast Saga has no shortage of action heroes and villains. But who are the strongest Fast and Furious characters?

Given the length of the series and each film's star-studded cast, there are some serious bruisers on this list. The main crew, Dom's "family," has graduated from petty thieves to international spies, and their combat prowess has improved significantly. The villains have often been played by wrestling stars and real MMA combatants, which certainly gives the bad guys an edge. 

But when the rubber meets the road, who will be the last man or woman standing? Vote for your top contenders, and decide which are the most powerful Fast and Furious characters.

    Deckard Shaw

    First Appearance: Furious 7

    Fighting Style: Special Forces

    Strongest Moments: The opening scene of Furious 7, which follows Shaw's swath of destruction through a military hospital, tells you just about everything you need to know about this "legitimate English bad*ss." Subsequently going toe-to-toe with Hobbs, and then blowing him through a window, comes in at a close second.

    Weakest Moment: Getting beaten by "the street" in his final fight against Dom.

    First Appearance: Fast Five

    Fighting Style: Military training meets WrestleMania

    Strongest Moment: Hobbs has been likened to the Incredible Hulk, and for good reason. His size and build give him the advantage in almost every fight. However, his strongest moment isn't a fight scene but a singular act of flexing. While laid up in the hospital in Furious 7, Hobbs sees that Los Angeles is under siege. After telling his daughter, "Daddy's got to go to work," he literally flexes out of his cast. 

    Weakest Moment: He really gets his butt handed to him by super-soldier Brixton in Hobbs & Shaw.

    First Appearance: The Fast and the Furious

    Fighting Style: Street brawler

    Strongest Moment: Dom has survived so many explosions, brawls, and high-flying stunts that he may, in fact, be some kind of automotive god - or maybe a low-key wizard. Objectively, his strongest moment occurs in Fast & Furious when he's threatening Virgil the mechanic. Dude literally holds up a car engine with one hand. One hand!

    Weakest Moment: He sort of perishes at the end of Furious 7. However, being the wizard and/or god that Dom is, the Grim Reaper gives him a pass.

    Brixton Lore

    First Appearance: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    Fighting Style: Black Superman

    Strongest Moments: Given his advanced cybernetic enhancements, it's almost impossible for Brixton to lose a fight or even suffer serious injury. He's introduced taking down an entire MI6 strike team, and the domination just continues from there.

    Weakest Moment: He's beaten by the power of friendship.
