The world of anime boasts a variety of punch-packing characters for the power lovers, anywhere from samurais to assassins, ninjas to whole aliens, martial arts veterans to underdog streetfighters. However, even amongst the elite, exist those on par with none. Heroes, villains, champions, lone wolves and fighters with dreams and goals who conquer every stage and find a place beyond the reach of their peers. In this article, we take a look at anime characters so powerful it would not be unreasonable to call them omnipotent.
1. Zeno from Dragon Ball Super
Okay so maybe it’s a bit of a cheat to have a literal god of all universes on this list, but there’s no discussion of omnipotence and power in the anime community that doesn’t involve this elusive character. Zeno may be short and unimpressionable, but he holds the title of ‘Omni-King’ for his control and dominance over multiverses. Proof of his feats includes his decision to casually destroy six of eighteen universes in mere bouts of anger. His playful battles with his future self result in the destruction of many planets. He shows a childlike apathy towards living beings due to a lack of companionship, although this is lessened by his friendship with Goku.
2. Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
The titular heroine of this eccentric story set in a regular world, Haruhi is anything but normal. Most people wouldn’t immediately think about her when talking about omnipotence but looking at her powers, its impossible to not have her high on this list. Haruhi leads as president of the SOS Brigade, a club dedicated to the study and discovery of time travelers, espers, aliens and supernatural phenomenon. However, unbeknownst to her, her sub-conscious holds the power to re-shape, destroy and create the very fabric of reality. In order to keep her in check, her club members are sent from their respective higher ups and the group of friends tackle high school life as well as the many whims of Haruhi.
3. Saitama from One Punch Man
Popular within his anime and a fan favorite for his comical antics and relatable personality, Saitama defeats all his opponents in one punch. While this works in his favor as a hero for his city, he finds that he has lost the thrill of the battle due to his punches overwhelming everyone in just one hit. This causes his battles to be anti-climatic but fans agree that there is no set upper bound limit to his powers due to him casually defeating even mechanical and supernatural bred and manufactured to be superhuman. Thankfully, Saitama seems to possess a humanly average appetite considering he is unable to beat Genos in a spicy noodle eating contest.
4. Kaguya Otsutsuki from Naruto
Its typically believed that the strongest character in world-famous anime series Naruto would be the titular protagonist Naruto himself. However, even he never manages to defeat the series ultimate villain without help. Hailing from another world altogether, Kaguya arrives to take the fruit of the God Tree. Once the matriarch of her branch family, Kaguya masters Chakra and hence gains control over all five nature transformations as well as Yin and Yang. Every atom of her body is a weapon, her eyes blessed with Byakugan and her hair used to immobilize the vital points of her enemies. She also wields a third eye, the Rinne Sharingan. She boasts many powers, enhanced after her consumption of the God Tree’s fruit.
5. Madoka Kaname from Puella Magi Madoka Magic
Its easy to be fooled by this picture of innocence. After all, no one expects world-ending powers from a kind-hearted eighth grade who loves cats and sports a cute smile with bubbly pink hair to match. Her entry to the world of magical girls and supernatural crime fighting begins with a mere wish that changes the very timeline. Her power depends on the the timeline and incarnation she exists in but upon achieving her Ultimate form, Madoka unleashes her ability to altering realities as well as the flow of the universe she is a part of. This transcendence has hinted that she may have gained awareness of other timelines and can observe them, even interfering if required.

7. Hajun from Shinza Bansho
Mara Papiyas, or more commonly known as Hajun, is the God of the Sixth Heaven in this series’ worldbuilding. Egotistic and unempathetic by nature, Hajun is the only God without a special or niche technique, instead channeling his raw power into battle. He also possesses a tumor that plagues him with phantom sensations, which only serves to increase his powers infinitely as he desires true solitude. Moreover, he is capable of triggering mass massacres on multiversal levels and subjecting the desires of people to consume their masters.
