Top 10 Anime Characters That Could Defeat Thanos Easily

Top 10 Anime Characters That Could Defeat Thanos Easily

DC comic's Purple boy Thanos has proved to be one heck of a threat for our marvel heroes. This mad titan singlehandedly wiped out half of universe with a single snap of his fingers. This he chose to do claiming his so called good intentions to save the universe by turning half of it to dust rather than using the infinity guanlet for something more benefiting like making endless supplies of food for the universe or some other non disastrous approach.

Even without the infinity gauntlet, Thanos is still one of the most daunting opponents possessing incredible powers like Superhuman Strength, Superspeed and Reflexes, Near Invulnerability and can manipulate matter to some extent.

Thanos may have walked through portals and threw a planet at the Avengers, but nonetheless despite his incredible powers, there are still a handful of other powerful individuals from the anime verses who can take Thanos one-on-one and beat him even when he is using his Infinity Gauntlet at full throttle.

If these characters happened to show up in Infinity War, the fight against Thanos would be much easier.  In fact, some wouldn't even need to support of the Avengers or other Anime characters and could take the Mad Titan out all on their own.

In this article i am going to list out some of these characters.


1.   Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann:



Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is the titular mecha from the anime series of the same name. In this anime we have 3 entities which powers which are on par or most likely even surpasses marvel's One Above All which are undeniably superior to someone like Thanos who can't even be compared to One Above All: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, The Anti-Spiral, and Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (movie only).

All three of which were confirmed to be 12+ dimensional beings who can bend space time and the fabric of reality to their will, in the movie the combined attack of Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Anti-Spiral’s Granzeboma destroyed the Super Spiral Sphere- a 12th dimensional multiverse created by the Anti-Spiral. In the anime TTGL and Granzeboma are both massively multi-galactic in size, in the movie Super TTGL and Granzeboma increase in size to the point where each is almost as tall as a universe, with their Giga Drill Break attacks being many times larger than a universe.



Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is literally made of Spiral Power the energy that humans and animals use to evolve Unlike other Gurren Lagann forms, which merely run on Spiral Power,

With Simon's near-infinite supply of Spiral Power combined with the energy of everyone in Team Dai-Gurren, TTGL's Spiral Power is said to be on par with the Big Bang itself.





2.   God, Space Dandy:



Dandi is the titular main human protagonist of Space Dandy. He is a carefree alien hunter and captain of his own personal spaceship, the Aloha Oe. His life mission is to visit all the intergalactic locations of a breastaurant known as BooBies and indulge in his posterior fetish. 

This guy is nigh-omnipotent, displaying his power to rewrite time and the infinite multiverse whimsically. He could literally erase Thanos out of existence. I’ll try to avoid any spoilers pertaining to his character, but he sure is an interesting person in the series. By the way, the picture above is not God, but a picture of Dandy when he met God is the closest thing I could find, as God has no physically form in the anime.




4.   Zeno, Grandpriest And The Angels



The Omni-King, is one of the kings of the 12 Universes, one of the two entities who stands above the entire multiverse, alongside his future counterpart, Future Zeno.




His childish appearance and personality should not be taken lightly as he has mind bougling powers and can easily erase anything. He does the exact same thing Thanos can only do with his guanlet, the only difference is Thanos's guanlette only has power to wipe out universes whereas Zeno can easily wipe out an omniverse by hand.

Anyone who upsets the Omni King is likely to be one-shotted before they can form a thought against it.





5.   Kami Tenchi, Tenchi Muyo



Yet another anime character that can easily pummel Thanos is yours truly, Tenchi Masaki who is the incarnation of this "God", which is why he has the ability to create Light Hawk Wings by his own power, as well as his other mysterious abilities. He was able to effortlessly stop the Counter-Actor. Tenchi's godly self ascending and nearly automatically destroying all of existence.



The unnamed character dubbed by the fans as “Kami Tenchi” from Tenchi Muyo is a truly omnipotent character, having no physical limitations to his being. He is another anime version of DC's Presense and Marvel's One Above All.





6. Elder God Demonbane-literally all the divine characters



Elder God Demonbane, the protaganist of the anime is another tough call. Right off the bat Demonbane would wipe the floor with Thanos. And not just him, basically all divine characters in this anime are far above thanos for example we got Yog Sothoth who was the only Elder god besides Azathoth who Elder God Demonbane could not defeat.

The gods in this series are pretty much all outerversal threats. The most powerful one, Azathoth, is even omnipotent although he’s currently asleep.



This story features a cast of nigh-omnipotent Elder Gods fighting it off against Elder God Demonbane- a giant nigh-omnipotent mecha that is able to kill all of the Elder Gods besides Yog Sothoth (who was his equal) and Azathoth (who is the omnipotent ruler of the story). As a whole, this is one of, if not the most, consistently overpowered fictional verses.




7.   The Law of Identity:



The Law of Identity is the one who causes the recognition of "I am me," in beings. In other words, it is the undeniable principle that you are yourself. Without it, no being could recognize this. The top of all story hierarchies: The Law of Identity is the origin of all things.

debatably true omnipotent, at least high nigh-omnipotent. Again, another story about magicians who can bend the multiverse, space, and time to their will. Totally above Thanos level




8.   One Punch Man



 You could probably already tell by the name that one punch man isn't a character to take lightly. Sure he's got superhuman strength and durability beyond anything you could ever imagine, but what actually sets Saitama apart when compared to most powerful entities, is not just his insane strength but also his ability to deafeat his opponents with a single punch. This turning out to be fraustrating to some extent like one shotting enemies everytime would start to get boring after a few times.

Surely Thanos wouldn't like to be at the receiving end of that punch, not even him would be able to withstand it. Saitama is able to manifest whatever strength it would take to defeat any foe no matter how powerful. This means Thanos would not be able to beat him one on one.



9.   MUI Goku




A Saiyan from Planet Vegeta who was raised on earth, Goku has grown up to earn a place among the top five strongest anime protagonist. Even in his early youth he had more than enough power to shake planets while powering up.

Let's leave ultra instinct out for now, Goku's power is high enough on its own plus he also has various Super Saiyan transformations on his side, can multiply his power more than 10 times, and his Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue forms currently puts him at god level, which is more than enough to take on Thanos.

Even without any powerups or transformations, Goku's natural alien physiology grants him immense strength and power, which has gotten stronger and stronger as time has gone by, either by training or by surviving near-death experience.

When you bring ultra instinct into the picture, then Goku by far surpasses Thanos espeacially in his mastered ultra instinct form which gave him the fighting skills to defeat a god-like being without even going Super Saiyan along with his current non canonical transformation unofficially dubbed Grandpriest Goku.



10.   Tetsuo Shima



Tetsuo Shima is a psychic with unrivaled powers that nearly brings an end to the entire world in the anime film Akira. After nearly passing away in a motorcycle accident, he awakens his rapidly growing powers and begins to exact his vengeance on a cruel world that has no place for a poor orphan like him.

After receiving the powers of the esper, Tetsua reached such an incredible power level that he initiated a Big Bang and created a parallel universe where he became god.

Tetsuo is so powerful by the end of the film that he’s capable of destroying and creating entire universes with his uncontrollable psychic powers. Tetsuo’s abilities put him in a league of his own when it comes to battle and someone like Thanos just is not one of the few most powerful entities who stand a chance against him.
