Move Explained:

A lot of you already know about this character too. For those who don’t know, Roy Mustang is a character from a very popular anime called Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Roy can create flames anywhere he wants and that’s a really good ability, as it’s long-range and short-range. Let Me explain his skill.

Roy, using his gloves, yes gloves, as alchemists require a circle something to create a structure, most alchemists can make stone structures and with those, they can fight as well but for Roy, that’s not the case. Did that make sense? Hopefully, that did lmao!

Roy has a circle made on his gloves that lets him create fire, if he’s not wearing the gloves with the circle on, then he can’t make fire. Roy first creates an electric spark on the enemy and in that moment, uses a massive amount of energy and creates a large number of flames on the enemy or opponent.

Move Explained:

Luffy is a character from One Piece, and trust me, this is a long journey. This series has more than 900 episodes and it’s still running to this very day. It’s about to hit 1000 episodes, meaning it will be time-consuming for you if you wanna watch One Piece. Only if you can watch an Anime ALL DAY, that is.

I am not saying that you shouldn’t watch this! I am just saying it might take a lot of time so make sure that you have your popcorn and everything to start this amazing series.

Let me explain about this anime, in this anime we have pirates but not those lame ones but BADASS ONES. In this world, we have Fruits but not simple ones like Apples or Bananas but special ones that give you specific abilities once you eat them. 

Luffy ate one when he was little and got abilities that made him stretch and one of his abilities is Gum-Gum Pistol, he shoots his arm out super fast that makes him hit any enemy in front and that’s just super cool! Wooh this one’s long. I won’t spoil this further so let’s move on.

 

22. Shinichi Izumi’s Hand Weapon (Parasyte)

Move Explained:

Shinichi Izumi is a character from the anime called Parasyte, not sure if you have heard of that one. This one is pretty cool, especially the story. It’s really popular too.

Parasyte follows the story of man-eating creatures called Parasytes that stumbled across the earth. If a parasyte gets into a human’s body, he will take over the whole body by killing the original soul, oh wait did I forgot to mention that they can take various types of shapes while controlling a body and are super powerful.

But that’s not the case for Shinichi, one parasyte tried taking over his body but luckily he didn’t manage to and only took over his hand. Even though he hated Humans and Shinichi, he had to help him as if the original souls body dies, the parasyte within him will also die. 

This follows a great story, let’s talk about his skill. One day at a school, when Shinichi was fighting another man-eating Parasyte, he told Parasyte to take over until he figured something out so the Parasyte took some fearsome and strong shape and believe me, that was so cool.

Move Explained:

Is there anyone even left who hasn’t heard of Naruto? Well, I am sure that there are still soooooo many people who haven’t heard of Naruto. Can’t blame you for that lmao! Naruto’s Rasenshuriken is a skill created by Naruto, So how is It made? Good question!

Let Me explain. Naruto first creates 2 clones of himself and provides chakra to one of his clones in order to hold the chakra and the other one provides wind nature to the clone with the chakra and that’s how the skill is made.

Move Explained:

Bakugou, a character from My Hero Academia, I mean everyone knows that already! Lemme explain a little about AP Shot and how it’s produced. 

Bakugou uses his quirk in order to create explosions from his entire palm, But he needs more skills so while he was training, He came up with this one. So as I said that he uses his entire palm to create an explosion right? But with this move, he focuses on only a single point that lets him create this explosive power.

This skill can cut through almost anything solid. Pretty cool right?

Also known as Destructo Blade, it is a technique created by Krillin, a friend of Goku. This skill creates a circular blade that can cut LITERALLY ANYTHING THAT COMES IN THE BLADE!

He used this skill/ability/technique when he was fighting with Nappa. This became a very popular skill among the Dragon Ball Z community and almost everyone in the anime knows about this skill or at least has heard of it. This one is really cool ngl:0!

Move Explained:

Ah yes, Deku from My Hero Academia, DON’T TELL ME THAT YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS ONE TOO? Oh, wait you have? Wait I am confused, have you or not?  Not that it matters! Lmao! Moving on, lemme explain about this attack and what makes it cooler and a little backstory of our MC Deku

Midoriya, also known as Deku, is a teenager who was born with no particular quirk, it’s pretty rare to see people born without a quirk in the world where Deku lives. Everyone’s favorite hero, All Might, gave Deku a training session in order for him to obtain his Quirk but little did he know that it might be a little disgusting… 

Okay, I’ll not spoil this further, let’s move on to why this one is so cool. It’s just a normal punch named Detroit Smash, but don’t let that fool you. What’s cool is that the immense air pressure it creates, that’s just SO COOL!

 

17. Yasuke’s Spirit Gun (Yu Yu Hakusho)

25/40

Move Explained:

Seems interesting… This one is low on the list, despite it looking cool, it’s not super powerful.

It can make any grown-up man turn unconscious and he can kill weaker humans but this is not effective against bigger and stronger enemies and opponents so that’s a disadvantage, but this skill starts to become stronger as time goes on. So, how is it formed anyway?

Yasuke focuses the spirits on his hand, and with enough spirits, he shoots out a light beam through his fingertip. The beam started becoming stronger and powerful later on in the anime, you should definitely see if this should have been higher on the list by watching the anime.

 

16. Hiro’s Invisible Pistol (Inuyashiki)

26/40

Move Explained:

This one is really cool and useful in some cases!

We can use this type of skill in an emergency if we run out of bullets or stuff. A pretty good skill to not lie. Have you ever made a pistol with your hand? You definitely have! Maybe? It’s similar to Hiro. He creates a pistol with his hand and shoots someone.

But rather than acting, the person he shot will actually die.

Move Explained:

Do I have to explain who Pikachu even is? I guess that’s still not a problem for me. Anyways.

Pikachu’s Thunderbolt is a skill that strikes an enemy with a lightning bolt created by our one and only, Pikachu. Soo, how is this skill even produced in the first place? Well, let’s take a deeper look into this one.

Pikachu creates electricity with the help of the marks on his cheeks, he then charges up electricity and throws it at the enemy that’s in front of him.

Move Explained:

Really? Not again! Do I actually need to explain which anime this character is from?! Welp! I guess I have no choice!

Zenitsu is a character from the very popular anime series called Demon Slayer. Just look at the graphics for this anime man!! They are so damn cool! Moving on, Zenitsu has Thunder Breathing and he has this one ability that’s so damn cool.

Zenitsu is a scaredy-cat but this skill of his is damn cool, thunderclap and flash allow the user to travel super fast in any direction, slicing through literally anything that comes in its way, and it’s soo powerful.

Move Explained:

Naruto is popular, but have you watched Naruto Shippuden yet? Lemme explain a little about Sasuke’s Amaterasu. If you have watched Naruto then you know what this skill is about but ima still explain for those who don’t know about this skill.

Amaterasu is basically impossible to dodge or escape from and here’s why, this skill creates a black flame in front of the enemy’s view or vision, then a fire appears on the enemy and it won’t stop burning till the enemy is burned. Plus the fire is as hot as the sun.

Move Explained:

Ichigo is a character from the anime called Bleach, and he’s also super famous. Ichigo shoots a big crescent moon-shaped slash that slices through multiple enemies, and you know what’s the fun part? He used this ability several times without naming it lmao!

So is this skill lame? So you thought, this skill can cause massive Destruction, told you not to think this was a weak skill. It also crushes anything that comes in the Slashes path so make sure you don’t get caught up in that skill of Ichigo!

 

10. Kanna Kamuy’s Electric Beam (Dragon Maid)

Power Effectiveness Uniqueness Total

5/10
28/40

Move Explained:

Kanna is a character from the anime called Dragon Maid, yes a maid!  Not just any maid, but a dragon maid! That’s cool:0!

Dragon Maid follows the story of a dragon falling into a female adult’s apartment. The dragon’s name is Tohru. Then they meet and a lot of stuff happens after that they find out that Tohru is from another dimension(Obviously since dragons aren’t on modern-day earth lmao!!) Tohru’s father also comes back to take Tohru back but then they both start to fight and argue, you know, a lot of stuff happens then. You should watch this one:)!

Moving on to Kanna Kamuy, who was kicked out of her dimension for pulling pranks and also, forgot to tell but she’s a toddler but don’t think she is weak as she is not a simple toddler. She is a dragon and super powerful. Kanna has a lightning element too.

Let’s talk about her skill, the Electric beam. She charges up electricity between her hands and shoots it at the opponent. Basically like Kamehameha but rather than energy, she stores electricity. She does need to absorb mana from around her, in order to actually create the energy.Kana is really strong despite her being 8-9 years old. (She is actually 100s of years old but she is mentally 8-9.)

Move Explained:

This one is a little underrated but trust me this one’s good. Maka is a character from the anime called Soul Eater. The name already describes a lot about this anime but ima still explain it a little more in detail and the Kishin Hunter Skill too.In the world of Soul Eater, there are human weapons, for example, a scythe or a gun or a chain, etc.

Our MC, Maka wields a scythe, oh wait did I mention that the scythes can turn into humans, I mean they are humans to begin with but they can just transform into weapons. She used this skill during a fight, and I have a small brain so I forgot who she was fighting! You gotta watch this anime yourself and find out who she was fighting:)!

This skill is soooo coooooool, and you will 100% love this one.

 

8. All Might’s the United States of Smash (MHA)

8/10
29/40

Move Explained:

Am I the only one confused on why All Might likes to name his skill after the country United States. Asides from that, this one was a true banger.

It did get a little sad since after he used this skill to defeat All For One, he lost all of his strength and powers, that’s just sad to watch. Moving on, lemme explain a little more about this banger skill that All Might used.

You see, all might have One for All, and every single one that has gotten this quirk, have gotten different types of it, for example, Deku got the lightning type one, So All Might got the muscles one and he has also fought All for One before and due to that, he got some serious injuries

Detroit Smash

Aside from that, he can’t keep his form for more than an hour, so back to the skill. When he fought All For One once again, he lost his form due to serious injuries and his time for 1 hour also ran out. 

And that is where the skill comes in. Even though he was in his skinny form with barely any powers left, he managed to focus all the leftover powers he had on one hand and created a huge wind pressure.

And because of that power and wind pressure, he managed to defeat All for One but now he can’t even keep his form for more than a single second.

Move Explained:

As Natsu can breathe fire from his mouth, he can create some amazing skills from that. Oh, wait? 

Natsu is a character from a famous series by the name of Fairy Tail. That one is really good not gonna lie. He is also immune to fire because he also can absorb the fire.

Okayy lemme explain about this skill now. Natsu first absorbs a lot of energy in his mouth, with a sufficient amount of energy, he converts that energy to Fire and bursts out a massive amount of fire, basically a giant beam coming out of his mouth that’s made of fire.

 

6. Iron Maiden (Shield Hero)

Move Explained:

This ones exciting:0! Naofumi, a lot of you already know who he is, but ima still explain for those who don’t know who he is.

Naofumi is a character from the anime called Rising of the Shield Hero. This anime follows the story of Naofumi getting betrayed by his only comrade he put his trust in, and later was accused of harassing her comrade, that he never did or would do something. 

Naofumi is now on his way to take revenge and destroy the planet with his rage shield, but one slave shares her feelings with him, she also said that she is Naofumi Sword. Wherever he goes, she will follow him. Let’s talk about the skill. Naofumi uses this skill when he is fighting a wave. He first traps the enemy in a shield ball, then calls a Shield Maiden and puts the Shield ball inside the maiden that’s full of dangerous spikes

Move Explained:

It’s not a big surprise that this one’s on the list, as this is one of the most popular anime attacks.

Oh, wait? Did I just hear that you don’t know about this ATTACK?WAIT, HUH? HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS ATTACK! but that’s not a problem tho-  Lemme just explain this real quickly.

Goku is a character from the anime called Dragon Ball Z, it is one of the best anime out there. Even though Kamehameha is just a blast of energy, it’s still super cool and strong. If you ask any anime fan about who uses Kamehameha, he will, at that point, know it’s from Dragon Ball Z. If you have not heard of it then I am glad I helped lmao!

Move Explained:

Is it just me or are there a lot of Dragon Ball Z character’s Deadliest Signature moves on this list? Well, moving on with Piccolo’s Beam Cannon. A powerful attack that can slice through anything.

He uses energy and focuses on 2 fingers that create this powerful attack. Also, did I mention that he killed Goku and his brother while trying to protect the planet 0-0.

Yes Goku, Despite him being one of the top 10 powerful anime character’s lists, the beam cannon sliced through him with ease lmao! (good old times :D) But if Goku were to fight with Piccolo now, he’d body Piccolo.

 

3. Meliodas’s Full Counter (Seven Deadly Sins)

Power Effectiveness Uniqueness Total
18/20

Move Explained:

Seven Deadly Sins, a very, very popular anime these days and it’s one of the best anime of all time. Meliodas is the leader or captain of Seven Deadly Sins and Dragon Sin of Warth. Also, don’t let his childish look fool you because Meliodes is the son of the Demon King and he is over 3000 years old. Told ya not to think he’s a kid:)

Let’s move on to the skill, he has 2 types of Full Counters, one is Magical and the other one is Physical. Have you heard of the anime Black Clover? If you have then you should watch that, As this skill is actually quite based on that 1 Black Clover Character.

The skill allows the user to throw back any attack that has been sent by the enemy but with extra and more power. Not to mention Meliodas’s Revenge Counter. That’s part of the Full Counter skill, alright so the Revenge Counter skill is a little hard to explain.

The skill, Revenge Counter, allows the user to charge up their blade and throw back a powerful attack but they have to take a bit of damage in order to charge up the blade and throw back the powerful attack.

 

2. Simon’s Giga Drill Break (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)

Can’t miss this one on the list.

Simon is a character from the anime called Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Lemme explain a little about this skill.

Simon creates a huge drill on top of his palm, then stores a huge amount of Spiral Power, and then throws the drill at the enemy or opponent in front of him. Pretty cool and strong long-range attack lmao!

Move Explained:

Ooooh, is there anyone out there that watches anime but doesn’t know who Saitama is?

If there are, then trust me, if you are reading this and you don’t know who Saitama is then, you are missing a lot in your life. Lemme explain who he is since many don’t really know about Saitama and tell about his signature move.

Saitama is the strongest character, currently the number 1. He is a bald guy and insanely POWERFUL. But still, there’s not 100% proof that he can beat Goku tho?

Anywaysss, Saitama started 3 years back when the Hero Association was formed. He trained day after day, fighting scary and powerful monsters and saving a lot of peoples’ lives. Like that one time when Saitama had to fight a mighty crab to save a kid, that was 3 years ago. Just imagine how strong he is now?

Saitama's Serious punch

But there’s an issue, he… For 3 whole years…

Though he was a hero even though he didn’t do the test that will actually make him a hero and because of that he was known for being a thief and stuff. King, oo can’t forget that guy, Every monster is scared of King, do you know why? They think that he is crazy strong but the truth is, the King is weak, weaker than every hero. Even though he is S-Class Rank. That’s just crazy!

He has been taking credits of Saitama for the past 3 years. Bruh, I forgot to explain the skill! Lemme explain it real quick, Saitama’s Serious Punch was used during his fight with Genos, a cyborg. The punch was so powerful that a quarter of the earth’s clouds disappeared in the direction he punched, but he wasn’t even serious at all that moment when he punched.

 

Comment Or Goku is coming for ya!

Goku Kamehameha

This brings us to the conclusion of this crazy list. These protagonists have broken the norm of the main character that we usually want and have still made the story interesting.

They are one of the main reasons why people love these anime and continue to re-watch them even though they have finished a long time ago.
