16. Sakamoto – Haven’t you Heard? I’m Sakamoto

Anime With OP MC

It’s a full-blown comedy series and one that had us laughing from scene to scene. It’s hard to come across an anime that would have us clutching our bellies from laughter, following a high schooler by the name of Sakamoto with an insane reputation for being the absolute coolest person in the entire school.

When we say cool, we mean incredibly cool and popular on a level you have literally never seen before. Seriously, Sakamoto is flawless and loved by literally every student in his high school except one, of course.

The majority of the series surrounds the many strange situations he finds himself in often due to the crazy prank set up by the jealous boy, but Sakamoto always manages to end up absolutely perfect and looks way cooler than he did in the beginning. A seriously fun anime and manga series that you definitely need to see for yourself. You will not regret it.

15. Simon and Kamina – Gurren Lagann

Anime With overpowered main character

A brilliant mecca and action series with an awesome sense of adventure and the perfect balance of comedy and drama. This is an anime series that will legitimately go down as one of the greats.

With some phenomenal world-building epic action and brilliant arcs, Gurren Lagann is a mecca-based anime series that delivers one of the most polished and innovative anime series we’ve come across in a very long time. Set in a world ruled by the vicious Spiral King that forces mankind to live underground.

These underground villages have no contact with the outside world and are constantly plagued by earthquakes and all sorts of unknown threats. We follow Simon and a group of his young friends that one day hopes to visit the surface. The story kicks off with Simon finding a mecca one day after his village is under attack.

Our hero uses his new mecca to defend it and looks to drill up towards and break through the surface. We are soon dragged into a rich and beautiful world of epic battles and crazy wars, from the point of view of a simple cast of characters that are well over their heads when we start to realize that they’re working to directly threaten the king himself and change the entire world of Gurren Lagann for the better.

14. Touya Mochizuki – In Another World with My Smartphone

anime similar to sword art online

A brilliant Isekai series with a strong fantasy element. This series had some brilliant characters and a surprisingly realistic take on how a fantasy world would react to an Isekai MC and the crazy sort of technology he could bring with him.

The story starts with our MC Touya Mochizuki, accidentally killed by a god. The god feels bad for what he has done and allows Touya to be resurrected in a new fantasy world and grants him a single request. Touya wishes to bring his smartphone with him, but as he cannot contact his old world. The god modifies and improves his phone, granting it insanely powerful abilities and making our MC unbelievably overpowered and undefeatable.

In this new world, our hero meets an interesting cast of new characters. Traveling from country to country solving issues from minor quests to major political issues within the kingdom. A fantastic anime series that we recommend you to check out.

13. Cadis Etrama Di Raizel – Noblesse

Anime Where MC is OP Transfer Student

Remember back when we got those Korean Webtoon adaptations? Those were the days. Among the three, Noblesse doesn’t have the most stand-out reputation.

However, if there’s one thing that the anime showcase decently, it’s how overpowered its main character the reawakened vampire Rai is. Throughout the show, he got many opportunities to showcase his strength. For me, the most memorable one would be the battle against clan leaders.

It’s the culmination of him establishing how far above everyone he is. He just played with all of them throughout and this fight is even better in the source material.

12. Tatsuya Shiba – The Irregular at Magic High School

Magic Anime with OP Magic Users

Tatsuya is supposed to be one of the lower-tier students but it turns out he might as well be God in a high school student’s body. Genius engineer, top-class fighter, and plane immortal. That so yet seems to be a lot of these and the entirety of Mahouka seems to be episode after episode of driving that point home.

This is a guy who can heal lethal wounds in a matter of seconds, bring people back to life, analyze everything mid-battle, and come out on top with his trusty handguns. People have given him the name Godsuya and it’s not hard to see why.

11. Rokurou Okajima – Black Lagoon

Anime With OP MC

An absolutely brilliant crime based and thrilling anime series. The black lagoon is a fantastic anime series that deserves more attention with beautiful girls, lots of guns, and some crazy action. There is a little reason for you not to tune in and check this out.

The series follows a team of vicious and cutthroat pirate mercenaries known as the Lagoon Company. This team of pirates operates as smugglers across the South East Asia sea in a time frame around the mid-1900s. Modern but not too modern. Black lagoon takes us on an epic and beautiful adventure across this region of the world.

From Thailand to Cambodia to Vietnam, we meet many shady and brilliant underworld figures with characters from the Yakuza, the triad, the cartel, and even the mafia. From episode 2 episode we come across thugs, mercenaries, thieves, prostitutes, and assassins in an anime series that seriously is unlike any other you’ve ever come across.

10. Sora and Shiro – No Game No Life

10 Highest Rated Isekai Anime

Making waves upon release, the hype surrounding no game no life has since died down. Still, we have not forgotten just how brilliant this fantastic Isekai fantasy anime series actually is. With an interesting and engaging spin on the classic formula and some awesome main characters that are quite unlike any that we have ever come across.

We follow the step-siblings Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister that absolutely love gaming online. The story kicks off when they are challenged to a game by Tet, a god from another reality. Our heroes win and are given a chance to live in a world that is built around games.

They accept the offer and are teleported to a magical world. People that live across this world are not allowed to harm one another or fight and are forced by powerful magic to settle any differences by gambling with games whose rules and rewards are enforced by this powerful magic.

Watch as our heroes travel through this world and carry on with a number of awesome adventures. From crazy tournaments and insane battles, you can’t help but get caught up in the awesome world that has been created for us in No Game No Life.

09. Koro-sensei – Assassination Classroom

teachers in anime Koro Sensei - Assassination Classroom

Don’t get ready to leave the school setting just yet because Koro-sensei is up next. In contrast to the stoic attitudes of the previous entries, Koro-Sensei comes off as juvenile. He’s an upbeat character with a lot of absurd requests but don’t let the childish facade fool you.

There’s a reason why the entire premise of the assassination classroom is to kill him. It’s because it’s nigh on impossible. Koro-sensei has shown to be near impervious to everything and is filled to the brim with weapons.

Often in places, she’d least expect them and that’s not even getting to the superhuman intelligence, senses, and speed. All trades are befitting someone who was the world’s greatest assassin at some point in his life.

Well, he does have his share of weaknesses but those are mostly psychological and barely affected showing us the reaper. Crossing him is something you never ever want to do.

08. Wang Ling – The Daily Life of an Immortal King

Daily Life Of Immortal King best anime where MC is transferred to magic school

Daily Life of Immortal King is one of the more niche titles around so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the show that you’re the least familiar with out of the things I’ve talked about so far. Still, it’s one of the most honest in terms of titles that sell the main character because it easily sets expectations. The immortal Wang Ling is one of the most powerful main characters in anime.

For the most part, Wang Ling wants nothing more than to have a normal life. That’s been the trend with a lot of these characters, right? Just like Saiki, he just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. However, in contrast to said character, Wang Ling has powers far beyond human comprehension.

Immortality is a thing, but how about reality warping. Add that to the superhuman feats and you have a virtual god whose skills have been honed after constant reincarnation, abilities that he tries oh so hard to keep in check.

Daily Life of Immortal King is a fun show, but it’s also quite neat and appeals strongly to a particular audience. If you want someone out for a bit of Chinese anime that features the overpowered protagonists the cultivation genres become notorious for, you can try this one out for size.

07. Alucard – Hellsing Ultimate

Magic Anime with OP Magic Users
4

I’ve had a lot of fun talking about Hellsing. It’s the perfect western-oriented anime in the 2000s. Dark, gritty, and violent are hardcore things that appeal to a lot of the people wanting a dash of edgy coolness in their lives and Alucard is the personification of those elements.

Dressed in his guard with matching shades, Alucard is nothing short of cool. The cherry on top is the sheer overpoweredness of the character. A lot of Hellsing is dedicated to him just decimating the opposition in the most over-the-top manner possible all while holding back.

If multiple showcases of power weren’t enough, you could try seeing him at his peak. Level zero Alucard is horror incarnate and a true sight to behold.

06. Saiki Kusuo -The disastrous Life of Saiki K

Saiki K OP MC that cannot be defeated

In a lot of ways, Saiki reminds me of Mob. The similarities are just uncanny given that they both have psychic powers and personalities that remind me of each other. They also have a desire to attract people despite their reservations. Just way more pronounced in the case of Saiki and they’re both crazy OP. It’s just not as visually stunning in the case of Saiki because he’s in a comedy show.

Still, that doesn’t take away from the insanely large arsenal Saiki has when it comes to putting his psychic powers into action. He can practically do anything with his powers and fans can attest to that.

It’s really a joy to see Saiki’s cynical attitude create an interesting dynamic with the people around him. Add that to a lot of over-the-top shenanigans and you have a winner for one of the best comedies the anime world has given us.

05. Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama – Mob Psycho 100

Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 upcoming anime of 2022

At first glance, Mob doesn’t give the impression of an overpowered character at all. He’s super plain in terms of appearance and as a character, there’s nothing brooding or loud about him. None in the two opposites of character impressions. Don’t be fooled. This is one of the most powerful psychics of them all.

I like Mob because he’s not just all about the OP. In fact, much of the story’s drama is about him and his emotions. How he forms a dynamic with the world around him and channels that energy to become the hero he is. Still, let’s give credit to the powers because they’re insane.

Some of his battle modes come with the most spectacular animations people have known in anime, and I think it helps carry the scenes and drive that point home. Mob maybe an everyday guy at first glance but underneath that socially awkward personality is one of the most powerful psychics of all.

04. Ippo – Hajime No Ippo

Anime With OP MC

Easily one of the greatest sports anime of all time and one of the most famous and well-known anime series. This long-running manga started as early as 1989 and still maintains a dedicated fan base. Centered around the world of boxing, there is a reason that Hajime No Ippo is a legitimate classic and one that you should consider getting into.

Through an awesome blend of action-comedy into the deeply insightful boxing world, Hajime No Ippo has since spread through multiple anime series and even a film. There is a lot here for you to get involved in. Following Ippo, a shy and quiet high schooler that didn’t have many friends.

Dedicating his free time to helping his mother run the family business. Bullied daily and beaten badly one day, he is taken to a nearby gym. It was here that everyone started to realize the sheer level of raw boxing talent that lay within Ippo.

He is naturally attracted to the exciting and intense world of boxing, and throughout the year fans of the world have seen him train and practice and hone his skills to one day become the greatest boxer around the world.

03. Ainz Ooal Gown -Overlord

overlord s4 Most Anticipated Anime of Summer 2022

You can point to many things to make a case for Ainz to be one of the most overpowered protagonists of all time. It could be how easily he beat the strongest enemies. It could be how he nonchalantly eradicates entire armies with a spell.

Whatever it is, he’s here to stay in the conversation for good. It’s understandable how hard it is at times to see past the intimidating skeleton appearance of the stoic facade, all while Ainz acts like a supervillain out to conquer the world, but he’s more than that.

His loyalty and charisma have attracted many residents of Yggdrasil to his side. Beyond that shadow of an all-powerful ruler also lies a human side one that he hadn’t let go. It makes it one of the best characters I’ve talked about so far or maybe it’s just me finding that sympathetic side past that scary non-human form to be very cool.

02. Anos Voldigoad – Misfit of Demon King Academy

isekai anime with OP MC

Just like Rai, Anos is a supernatural being awakened after a long hiatus trying to come to terms with the world that’s passed him by. With Anos, he wastes absolutely no time in making a first impression. I already knew what we were getting from the moment he had his first fight with that cocky guy in the first episode.

For the most part, it is what it is. He just shows how vastly superior he is compared to everyone else in the show, but I also find myself immersed in the show because of how he goes about solving problems that can’t just be brute-forced.

People call Misfit of Demon King Academy the one punch man of magic academy anime, but I think it’s a little more than that. Come and give this show a shot.

01. Saitama – One Punch Man

one punch man OP MC that cannot be defeated

Topping off the list who else the Saitama. Here’s the actual one punch man. I love the show because it hooks you on a simple premise. One hero trained so hard until he became able to be everything in one punch. Simple premise, simple show, right? Wrong.

I could talk a lot about the intricacies and the unexpected depth from One Punch Man but we’re here in an overpowered characters list so let’s focus on the main character Saitama. Well, there isn’t much to say for Saitama.

It is what it is. One punch villain goes bye-bye. The cool thing about Saitama is how creative and funny some of those one-punch wins are. The sonic fight comes to mind, while others like the Genos fight are remarkably awesome.

Overall, Saitama is a cool character who’s very fun to watch. Much of it has to do with his personality on how he shifts from indifferent to serious to comedic.

One Punch Man is a parody of the overpowered hero aspects of shows and if you’re up for some laughs and some serious feels, make sure to check Saitama out in his own habitat.
