MC is cursed with demonic powers

10 Best Anime Where MC Has Demonic Powers

There’s nothing quite like the thrill of discovering that you have the ability to manipulate the world around you through demonic powers. In anime, those possessed of such powers are known as “demons,” and they tend to fall into one of two categories: those born into their power and those who are cursed into it through some traumatic event.

Today we’ll be looking at the ten best anime where the MC has demonic powers or is cursed with demonic powers, either MC is possessed by some demons or MC has demonic powers from birth.

Here are the 10 best anime where MC is cursed with demonic powers

We’ve all seen it before. The main character is living their life, minding their own business, when suddenly they’re cursed with bizarre demonic powers. These powers can potentially change the lives of whoever they come into contact with, often for the better. They can be used to defend the weak and protect the good, or they can be used to cause destruction and mayhem. Here are our top 10 picks.

10. Kemono Jihen

Kemono Jihen Anime Where MC has Demonic Powers

Let’s start the list with an underrated show that no one speaks about these days. You surely won’t get any glory fights in Kemono Jihen, but it shows a child who is cursed with demonic powers and even asks to die at the hands of another character.

You’ve got a detective and three kids slowly discovering a mystery and a world that they didn’t know of. The cast of characters is especially likable, and two of these guys actually look like a more innocent version of Deku and the first version of Bakugo.

In terms of mystery, I’d like to see where the series would head out. This is a show that should definitely be on your watch list.

09. Ushio To Tora

Ushio To Tora MC is cursed with demonic powers

Who thought tigers would be the good guys of the story? This follows the adventure of a boy and a tiger. It starts off when a boy named Ushio saves a tiger named Tora from an accident but the presence of them soon draws in other beasts.

Now Tora tries to repay the debt by protecting Ushio and the anime revolves around the relationship as they face tougher challenges. This would be a good break from the regular attention-filled anime since this dwells on the fantasy and characters aspects of the story rather than its adventures.

It nicely blends its themes with its fantasy elements, so if you love an underrated show, give this one a go.

08. Blood Lad

Blood Lad Anime Where MC With Demonic Powers

Sometimes we need those demons who chill with their gang and live peacefully. Our main character from Blood Lad is one such demon. Well, he’s more of a vampire than a demon.

Staz Charlie Blood is a powerful vampire who is the demon world’s boss of the entire eastern region, and unlike any other vampire, Staz has no desire to reign. He is fascinated by Japanese culture, but all changes when an ordinary Japanese girl named Fuyumi Yanagi accidentally walks into a gateway to the demon world and is died during a battle with the demon.

Blood Lad explores Staz’s quest to resurrect Fuyumi and, in doing so, earn a ticket to the human realm. If you love some comedy and action then this is the show for you.

07. Testament Of Sister New Devil

Testament Of Sister New Devil Anime Where MC has Demonic Powers

This might belong to the ecchi department, but it still speaks about demons, so it will be valid. This anime tells the story of Basara Tojo, who suddenly gets two new sisters. Busty redheaded Mio and pitted silver had Maria.

Now having two sisters is not going to be a bad thing, but soon it is revealed that these sisters are disguised as devils. Now Basara forms a master-slave contract with these two and needs to find ways to keep their powers in check. I repeat, he needs to find ways to keep their powers in check.

The way he needs to keep his powers in check might be questionable but since it’s got that cursed demonic power in it, you got to give it a watch.

06. Strike The Blood

Strike The Blood Anime Where MC has Demonic Powers

Let’s meet our cursed vampire and his hot-headed bodyguard. This follows the high schooler Kojou Akatsuki and the various misfortunes he falls into. Despite not being known by him, Kojou is actually a powerful vampire and is powerful enough to destabilize the power of three ruling progenitors who are the rulers of the world.

So, a girl called Yukina is sent to monitor him and the anime follows the adventure of this duel as they meet their own enemies and find other allies on the island.

Strike The Blood has some great action sequences and Kojou’s power and its potential are slowly revealed through time. It comes with your good old harem, so that’s an extra plus.

05. D Gray Man

D Gray Man Anime Where MC With Demonic Powers

We keep talking about new anime so it’s time to dive into something old. I know the animation quality isn’t the best out there but it’s got a nice story to accompany it. In an alternate 19th century, a group of exorcists known as the black order will prevent reincarnations of Noah and his twelve apostles.

These reincarnations bear a grudge for humanity and their goal is to destroy them. One of the members of the black order is Allen Walker. No, not the singer but a fictional character.

It follows his adventure as he joins the black order to control his abilities and fight against Noah. It’s got the good old demon curses and exorcist traps, so it’s a perfect fit for this niche.

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(103 Ep.)


04. Misfit Of Demon King Academy

isekai anime with OP MC

This guy has the power to kill people with his heartbeat and he probably did some of the greatest powers flexing in anime history, so he should definitely be at the top of your demon lord list. He can throw castles, snap enemies out of existence, and even alter reality without breaking a sweat.

The anime follows his reincarnation and how he solves the mysteries that happen in his absence, plus getting a harem. Most of the harem is overshadowed by the main two love interests, Misha and Sasha.

They are two sisters who are saved by Anos and help him through his journey. If you love a demon who doesn’t treat his power as a curse then give this one a watch.

03. High School DxD

harem ecchi anime

Come on, everyone knows High School DxD. Even if you don’t know the story, you should definitely know who Rias Gremory is. The story kicks off when an angel attacks Issei Hyoudou.

Rias Gremory saves him and recruits him to the occult research club. There, he meets other girls with various characteristics and recruits more girls. All of the girls in the club are in love with Issei by the end of the fourth season, and love isn’t the only thing that is shared in this anime.

Each episode has plenty of fan service to make your eyes bleed and the demon curse of Issei isn’t the only thing you should be looking forward to in this show.

02. Black Clover

team anime fight Asta & Yami VS Dante

Yep, this is that anime with the screaming brat, but luckily, he has improved along the way so you have nothing to worry about. Black clover follows Asta, a young orphan who has no magical powers but aims high to become the wizard king.

He soon gains the mysterious five-leaf Grimoire and along with his friends and rival Yuno follows on various adventures to become the one and only wizard king. The first few episodes of this show might not be the best out there but the story and the character improve over the coming arcs and it’s got one of the best battles in shounen anime.

So don’t miss this anime and yeah, you’ll get used to Asta screaming after a while. Trust me, your ears get used to it.

01. Jujutsu Kaisen

Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Where MC With Demonic Powers

How can we not speak about the boy who ate the finger and then got dragged into a totally different hell filled with spirits and exorcists? Jujutsu Kaisen is loved by the audiences because of how well it executes all the shounen tropes and stays away from a lot of cliches.

We’ve got overpowered mentors, protagonists who aren’t some oblivious idiots who need to go through a training arc, we have female characters who finally get some development apart from being used as fan service, and to top it all off, we even have a mystery that is being slowly developed.

Also, we all know how well directed the fight scenes are, so if you need a shounen anime where the wrong guys get the wrong demon powers, then this is the show for you.
