Re:Zero is every weeb’s favorite dark fantasy anime for a number of reasons. It takes you to a world that resembles more of hell with all that suffering and misery. It’s the kind of anime that’ll make you depressed with all the dark elements in it and make you wonder how things will roll in the future (Yes, we mean it!).
When it comes to the characters in this anime, we see some really decent as well as twisted characters. The twisted ones are going to make you want to punch them! This anime deviates from the classic isekai trope and portrays the story in a different light which makes it all the more intriguing.
We have quite a large number of characters in Re: Zero that are going to make you fall in love with them or… Strangle them, maybe. We have prepared a list of some of the strongest characters in Re: Zero that possess insane abilities and grace your eyes with a bit of fanservice (It’s an isekai after all!)
Let’s get started with our ranking and beware of the spoilers ahead!
Table of Contents
32. Natsuki subaru
Unlike some of the most generic anime where the main character is overpowered, Re: Zero has a protagonist that is the weakest among all other characters when it comes to physical strength.
Natsuki Subaru is over an energetic boy who can do anything for the people he cares about. We also see him messing around with the girls in the anime but his heart belongs to only one woman, Emilia.
His intellect and experience of return-by-death make up for his lack of physical strength. He sucks at using magic or wielding a sword but his big brain always gets him out of messy situations so we gotta hand him that!
31. Otto Suwen
Otto Suwen, nothing more than a side character at first, carried Subaru in his carriage to places. But now we see him playing a very important role in the latest season. He’s equally involved in the messy situation that’s created around everyone.
We mostly see him panicking in the anime which seriously ruins his handsome looks (What a waste!). He has the worst luck because we see him getting in trouble all the damn time!
He possesses a very handy ability that makes him talk to animals and control them. He had been of great help to Subaru in the latest anime because of his mediocre powers. He’s one of those characters who’d die for their friends, and we see him doing the same for Subaru when he almost died while helping him.
30. Crusch Karsten
Crusch Karsten is a supporting character and is the Matriarch of the House of Karsten. She’s also aspiring to become the 42nd King of Lugnica.
She’s not very powerful when it comes to physical and close-ranged combat but possesses the divine protection of Kazami that lets her see through the lies of the people around her (Actually, we’d all love to possess this ability).
She has tremendous wind power and can control it well. When she combines her wind powers with her sword skills, she’s able to cut through every and anything that she can see so we must not ignore that awesome power!
Another minor character, Fredrica, serves as a maid under Rosewaal L. Mathers. She’s said to look like a carnivore looking at its prey when she’s angry. She also has sharp teeth that ruin her beauty according to Subaru. Subaru also believes that she’d look beautiful if she covered her mouth (RUDE!).
She’s a demi-human and can turn into a beast under sticky situations. Her beast mode lets her tear through anything and hunt down every enemy of hers. She’s strong enough for Subaru to trust her in protecting his friends.
Beatrice is the guardian of a huge library inside Rosewaal’s mansion and has a childlike appearance (She’s actually 400+ years old!). She’s the definition of a true tsundere. It’s true that she looks down on Subaru but secretly admires him and has a soft spot for him.
Beatrice uses Yin magic and is quite skilled at it. Using the Yin magic, she can freeze time, teleport, create a hole in the space, and fixate her existence. She also creates spatial loops that make its target wander in different corridors and make them lose their way to where they were going.
Felt is another supporting character who used to be a thief and now she’s a candidate for becoming the 42nd King of Lugnica (Wow, how tables turn!)
Felt is very agile and is very skilled at fighting. She also possesses some kind of divine protection with wind powers that let her dash ahead just like the wind itself. She also carries a knife and is a very skilled user. Her petite figure makes her move very quickly and has saved her life countless times.
26. Priscilla Barielle
Another candidate to become the 42nd King of Lugnica, Priscilla Barielle, is very arrogant and will make you want to punch her. She looks just like a poisonous flower because of her outfit and accessories.
She’s a skilled user of Yang magic and possesses Divine protection of the Sun. Her strength doubles in the daytime due to this ability and she’s able to defeat her opponents in no time. She also possesses the Yang Sword Vollachia and is able to pierce through anything. She doesn’t have to touch anything to cut it. That’s how strong she is (But is also rotten to the core!)
25. Lye Batinkaitos
The Sin Archbishop of Gluttony, Lye Batinkaitos, is the most mysterious character in the anime. He’s able to eat the memories of people and use them for his benefit, possessing their abilities and fighting styles as well. This makes him a very lethal opponent (He’s repulsive!). Also, another character you’d like to punch.
He uses the Authority of Gluttony and also steals memories. He possesses the power of Eclipse. With this power, he’s able to transform into his victims of stolen memories. He’s also a very skilled fighter and possesses a number of martial arts techniques that can defeat his opponent easily without breaking a sweat.
24. Meili Poutroute
A member of the unknown assassination organization, Meili poutroute is the beast tamer that was hiding in a village and looked like a normal little girl. Subaru realized that she’s working with Elsa to destroy the village as well as the inhabitants of Rosewaal’s mansion.
She’s blessed with the Divine Protection of Magic Manipulation that lets her control the fierce demon beasts. The demon beasts were such a pain for Subaru and almost killed him (Doesn’t matter! He can come back to life after getting killed countless times)
23. Elsa Grienhart
Elsa Grienhart worked for a secret organization along with Meili and is a lethal gut hunter. Yes, you read it right, A GUT HUNTER. She literally opens up the guts of her opponents and is obsessed with cutting them up (GROSS).
She possesses a kinetic vision that lets her see-through the attacks of her opponents. She’s great with using blades and is a skilled assassin. Her agility is no joke and is able to quickly respond to attacks. She’s also immortal that lets her come back to life even after her heart is pierced.
Garfiel is the half-brother of Fredrica and is the Guardian of the Sanctuary. He was held back due to his past traumas but is able to break through it, all thanks to Subaru!
He possesses the divine protection of the Earth Spirits that protect him as long as his feet are touching the ground. Just like her sister Fredrica, he’s also able to turn into a massive beast and tear apart his opponents in no time! He also has some experience in using water magic and healing magic that can heal wounds easily.
21. Petelgeuse Romanee-Conti
Petelguese, a member of the Witch Cult and the Sin Archbishop of Sloth, was a spirit and loved torturing everyone he came in contact with. He takes Rem as a hostage and tortures her repeatedly. This is another character from this anime that you’d feel like strangling because he’s plain repulsive! (And Insane).
He possessed an ability, Unseen Hands, that let him create invisible hands that let him stop or crush his opponents. He was also able to take over people’s bodies and control them however he wanted (Talk about twisted!)
20. Theresea Van Astrea
The absolute beauty, Theresea Van Astrea, was the previous Sword Saint and was granted the Divine protection of the Sword Saint. She single-handedly dealt with the Demi-Human war that made her the strongest of that time.
Her insight and intellect were definitely on another level. She was also skilled at wielding swords and could defeat her opponents without anyone’s help. The way she fought on the battlefield looked as if she was doing a beautiful deadly dance!
19. Wilhelm Van Astrea
Willhelm Van Astrea was the husband of Theresea and now a member of the Crusch Camp. His personality is very refined and is the true definition of a gentleman. He loved Theresea more than anything in the World.
He solely depends on his physical strength and uses no magic at all. It’s almost on a superhuman level! The Holy Sword he uses lets him cut through anything and with that sword, he was able to defeat the Witch Cult’s White Whale that was causing trouble in the Capital.
Our beloved half-elf female protagonist, Emilia is loved by weebs side by side with Rem (We’ll talk about her later). She’s the love interest of Natsuki Subaru and we see him swoon over her in almost every episode. She’s also competing against the other women who want to be Lugnica’s 42nd King.
Emilia possesses the spirit of fire, Puck who protects her at all times. She uses ice magic and has her mana suppressed because of her painful past. She’s able to manipulate ice and can create a white void that freezes everything including time. She’s not yet awakened but we’re very close to seeing her true form in the anime as she’s dealing with her past traumas successfully.
17. Roswaal L. Mathers
The Lord of the Roswaal Mansion, Rosewaal L. Mathers, is a mysterious guy and is a great magician in all of Lugnica. He’s supporting Emilia to become the next empress. Though, he’s only using them for his own benefits.
He has tremendous magical powers and the Divine Protection of Sorcery that lets him be compatible with all six magic elements. He’s not physically as strong as other characters but his crazy mana makes up for it.
Minerva was the Witch of Wrath who died 400 years ago and was brought to the Sanctuary by Echidna, the Witch of Greed. True to her title, Minerva is very hostile. But she’s only hostile towards those who put their lives in danger (ADORABLE). She has a cute way of scolding others that is not scary at all.
Minerva’s ability includes healing anyone by transforming any violence she wields. But there’s a side effect to her ability. The mana she uses can be from anywhere in the World and causes natural disasters there. She ends up killing an equal number of people that she saves.
15. Cecils Segmund
Ceclis Segmund also known as the Blue Thunderbolt of Vollachia, is considered the strongest in all of Vollachia. He’s ranked the 1st among the Nine Divine Generals of the Empire (We have yet to see him in the anime!)
His speed is the most amazing thing about him. He can travel at the speed of light without being noticed. He’s an unbeatable swordsman and is very good at handling swords with speed and precision. He carries two swords named “Murasame” and “Masayume” which have immense power. As a swordsman, he collects different swords as a hobby.
The Witch of Lust, Carmilla has a rather fragile and “cute” appearance despite being the Witch of “Lust”. She was also brought to the Sanctuary after dying 400 years ago.
Carmilla possesses an ability called “Faceless Bride” that makes her captivate people and they get so absorbed in her that they forget to breathe. Her targets are not aware of what’s going on with them until she removes the spell from them. She can also make people see her however they want, tricking them into delusion.
The creator of the White Whale, Daphne is the Witch of Gluttony that possesses immense power and can create beasts by just thinking about them. She possesses an animal-like mindset that is far from being human. and lives only to feel full.
She can make people extremely hungry and go insane by just touching or looking at them. Her victims start eating themselves because of the extreme hunger and end up killing themselves (Scary stuff!).
Previously connected to Roswaal and Beatrice, Echidna is the witch of Greed who possesses the complete version of the Book of Wisdom. Her thirst for knowledge is immense and is interested in Subaru’s return-by-death mechanism.
Echidna can use all six elements of magic and is an extremely skilled user. She possesses immense power which is not yet revealed. She can also set her opponents on fire without breaking a sweat.
Hector is the Warlock of Melancholy and we know a little about him. We saw him only once in the anime when he was crushing Rosewaal L Mathers some 400 years ago.
He uses the Authority of Melancholy and creates an invisible force field around him that lets him crush his opponents and paralyze them. He can also create invisible force fields at a distance and is able to destroy that place to bits in no time.
Typhon is the Witch of Pride that was taken to the Sanctuary by Echidna after her death 400 years ago. Though she’s 400 years old, she inhabits a child-like body which the fans absolutely adored.
She has the ability to tear her target’s body to pieces if she finds out that he/she’s guilty of something (Scary stuff right there!). She can also cut off different body parts of her targets without even moving to torture them and is one of the strongest witches of sin.
The tsundere maid that works at Roswaal Mansion as a maid, Ram is a powerful creature and a survivor of the demon tribe. Her horn was cut off during a battle and she lost tremendous power after that.
Ram is able to share her vision who has the same wavelength. This ability of hers got her and Subaru out of a lot of sticky situations. According to the creator of the Light Novel, Ram with horn would’ve been able to defeat the White Whale alone without anyone’s assistance.
Rem is the twin sister of Ram and also works as a maid at the Roswaal Mansion. She’s the favorite character of most of the fans along with Emilia and really, we’re torn between the two!
She’s extremely skilled at water magic and can heal people who are injured as well as herself. She also has a demon mode in which a single white horn appears on her forehead and increases her power and physical abilities tremendously, making her one of the strongest characters in the World of Re: Zero.
The cutest of them all, Puck is the spirit that protects Emilia and despite his extremely adorable exterior, he’s a literal beast! His powers are weakened because of the contract made with Emilia. Puck is the great spirit of fire and is extremely strong.
Puck is a very skilled magic user and can use any type of magic to destroy his enemies. He’s also able to drain mana by coming in contact with his target. We normally see Puck as a very tiny cat but his true form is a humongous Cat-like beast called “The Beast of the End”. He can freeze everything, even time when he’s in that form!
Sekhmet is the Witch of sloth and was brought to the Sanctuary along with other witches by Echidna. She has a voluptuous body and looks like she’s in her mid-twenties when she really is 400+ years old.
She’s said to have killed all of her tribe just because they abandoned her once. She holds tremendous power that makes her manipulate the space around her to crush her opponents. She usually thinks fighting is a drag but as soon as she gets serious, it’s over for everyone!
5. Regulus Corneas
Representing Greed, the Sin Archbishop of the Witch Cult, Regulus Corneas makes it to the top 5 of our list of Strongest Re:Zero characters because of the immense power he holds.
He’s able to stop time for anyone he touches and even himself. He doesn’t have any impressive physical powers but thanks to his superhuman abilities, he’s able to obliterate his opponents in an instant. He’s considered the strongest in the Witch Cult because of his invincible powers.
Pandora has a connection with the Witch Cult and is the Witch of Vainglory. She has a very calm demeanor and looks very graceful. there’s a charm in her voice and now, most of the fans are torn between her and Emilia.
Pandora can rewrite the World how she wants and can manipulate fate. This ability of hers makes her immortal. Even Regulus Corneas is no match for her. She was the reason why Emilia had such a traumatic past.
The Witch of envy, Satella killed the six other witches and ate half of the World (True to her name!). She has a connection with Subaru and Emilia that we don’t know about yet. She resembles Emilia in a lot of ways and got Emilia in trouble because of that.
She’s able to control shadows and manipulate people’s feelings and emotions, altering them to her own liking. She’s the reason why Subaru’s suffering and fighting. She has control over Subaru’s heart and can stop it any time she wants. We can say that she resides inside Subaru’s heart but it’s a home to someone else, Emilia!
2. Julius Jukulius
Julius Jukulius is a member of the Royal Guard and a Knight to Anastasia Hoshin. We gotta give the number. 2 spot to him because he has crazy physical powers and is a great swordsman.
He possesses Divine Protection of Gathering Spirits which enable him to come into contact with any kind of spirit and to use them for his benefit. He can also use high-level magic that many cannot do. Apart from using magic, Julius is an excellent swordsman and comes second to Reinhard only. He has reached the peak of swordsmanship and can’t get any better than that. Us ladies swoon over him!
1. Reinhard Van Astrea
The Grandson of the great Willhelm Van Astrea, Reinhard steals the first part and is the strongest character in the World of Re:Zero. He’s a knight to Felt and is a member of the Royal Guard. His powers have surpassed the original Reid.
His swordsmanship has no match and he holds tremendous powers while being agile and quick to react as well. Unlike others, Reinhard is able to possess any Divine Protection he likes according to the situation he’s in. He’s the current Sword Saint and is a monster on the battlefield. He can boost his physical power by consuming mana which makes him invisible and second to none!
Re:Zero incorporates a lot of interesting characters that undergo character development and come out as entirely different people. We gotta hand it to the creator for such an amazing storyline and character design that is not found in a lot of anime.
Hope you liked our list of The Strongest Re:Zero characters. We’ll be updating our list as the anime progresses and keep you entertained. Till next time, then!
