If we ask about the series that introduced him to the wonderful world ofcheered up, then the following names probably spring to mind: Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, and Dragon Ball Z.

29 Aizen Sosuke
Once an important part of the Gotei 13,Aizen has perhaps the most memorable heel turn ever in anime history.With her impressive Bankai that few can top, she definitely deserves a spot on this list. His role as Bleach's antagonist was incredibly intriguing.
There are many reasons people point to when talking about Bleach's demise, and perhaps the most telling is the fact that it isAizen was paused as Bleach's main antagonist, reducing fan interest in the series as a whole.
28 Natsu Dragneel

26 jotaro kujo
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is packed with creative powers that can be used for a variety of functions. These appear in the form of Stands, with the Stardust Crusaders being the first to use these new projections of a person's essence.
Jotaro, der Protagonistthis part, he has quite a powerful support which becomes even more formidable after gaining the power to control time.A support that canBeating people into oblivion and stopping time for a while is understandably very powerful,and there's a reason he didn't have much time to use those powers in later parts.
25 satoru gojo
Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular anime out there, and it's easy to see why. The anime is full of iconic moments and the film cemented the series' popularity around the world.
One of the best characters that people love in Jujutsu Kaisen is Satoru Gojo.. That's itJujutsu Wizard is extremely powerful,with no one really able to meet him face to face. There's a reason the demons are doing everything they can to imprison Gojo before beginning their nefarious plan.
24 Joana's day
There was a time when Giorno's Stand wasn't the most powerful thing there was. Clear,Golden wind could create lifeand it had its unique powers, but the raw power of this stand wasn't really great.The quick punches were shockingbut there's a reason Giorno made so many attacks to end most of the fights.
Everything ended whenThe Golden Wind Requiem was born. This stand is one of the strongest in the entire series,be ablerewrite reality and manipulate life on a whole different level.
A villain so powerful that he cannot be defeated by normal means,Kars was the antagonist of the Battle Tendency arc in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and he certainly gave Joseph Joestar some competition.
A legendary vampire with incredible abilities,These powers are further amplified when he activates the Red Stone of Aja, technically making him an omnipotent being. Only through intelligent thinking can Joseph master this immense threat.
22 soft god
Of course, in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure we can't talk about powerful antagonists and not mention themthe only person who technically cursed the Joestars family tree, Dio.While he takes himself very seriously, his fans certainly don't.

Initially a vile human who wanted to take over the Joestar household, things quickly escalated when Dio turned into a vampire after activating the Stone Mask. People who thought this threat was fixed in the first part of JoJo were understandably taken aback whenHe's back in Stardust Crusaders, this time with even more powers!
21 Edward Newgate alias Whitebeard
Is it a surprise that Whitebeard's name is on this list? Well, we're pretty sureAnyone who has watched One Piece can attest that Edward Newgate is the most powerful character.r throughout the series and will surely give everyone on the show a run for their money.
The Battle of Maniford is one of the most epic moments in One Piece,and it's easy to say that Whitebeard is one of the main reasons why this arc was even more special.
20 Zeref Dragneel
We've already talked about itNatsu von Fairy Tail,But the fact is that the protagonist of this series can't hold a candlehis brother, Zeref Dragneel.
In terms of raw power, Zeref outperforms Natsu in almost every area. In the Fairy Tail world, he is consideredone of the most imposing, powerful and dangerous magicians there is.Anyone looking at it the wrong way would be getting something brutal for sure.
19 Ichigo Kurosaki
The protagonist of Bleach who has risen to a level no one could have dreamed of.It's amazing to imagine how weak Ichigo was at the start of the series.But it was only through sheer determination and hard work that he reached a level that even the Gotei 13 could look up to.
While you might joke about the sheer number of power-ups he's been the core in (the half-Quincy, half-Shinigami, half-Fullbring, half-Hollow joke is still going strong to this day), you still can't disagree.Ichigo was immensely powerful,Finally.
a legendary vampirewho has appeared in various entertainment media, it's safe to say that his character in Hellsing is perhaps the strongest iteration of them all. Finally,There's a reason he's the most effective member of the Hellsing Organization.

It's understandable that any vampire pursued by Alucard would fear for their lives as Alucard can easily drive them off without a second thought. The fact thatHe really loves dismembering his enemiesis proof enough of Alucard's psychotic power.
17 Madara Uchiha
There's a reason Madara has been consistently ranked as one of the most powerful characters in the history of the Naruto Universe:Its power is literally incredible.. It's hard to imagine how even the power duo of Naruto and Sasuke could have defeated Madara if Black hadn't betrayed Zetsu.
Madara was already one of the most powerful ninja of his generation, and that was before he became one.the Jinchuriki of the Ten-Tails and received an igreat amount of power.
While Ichigo certainly could have been one of the most powerful characters in Bleach, don't be fooled that he topped the power ladder. No, this title can only go toel Wandereich, Yhwach.
There's a reasonthis person was also called the Almighty- his power was simply divine. The only reason it's not at the top of the list is the disappointing way it was handled towards the end, and that was mostly because Kubo had to end that arc early and end Bleach once and for all.

14 Naruto Uzumaki
Of course it's time to talk about itthe person after whom an entire series is named.This isn't just any series: Naruto is one of the most popular Japanese exports of all time, and one of the main reasons for that is the main character of the same name.
