The Rising of the Shield Hero is not your average cookie cut isekai anime. Although, things cool down after a few dark episodes and we see it in a different light. And we gotta say- THE HYPE IS REAL!
It includes a number of characters that follow the progression as we see in RPG games like leveling up and gaining new skills after training or defeating monsters.
The characters are quite versatile as it includes a number of monsters, carinal heroes, demons, and angels. So, let’s get right into our list of some of the strongest characters from The Rising of the Shield Hero without wasting time. (Spoiler alert for the first-timers!)

18. Malty S. Melromarc
She’s one of the characters we’d like to punch in the face because of what she did to our protagonist. After successfully accusing Naofumi of assaulting her, she made his life miserable and he ended up being a target of everyone’s hate.
Let’s save the stuff we have about her rotten personality for later and just talk about her power!
Malty does not possess impressive physical strength and just uses tricks and magic to get what she wants. Although, she carries a sword but never really uses it.
She can only use low-level magic and specializes in fire-type magic. We also see her being able to use a bit of air-magic occasionally. Malty is the weakest character in the world of The Rising of the Shield Hero.
17. Melty Q. Meromarc
Unlike her sister, Melty is more polite and kind towards commoners and demi-humans. She does not abuse the power of her being nobility and treats everyone equally. That’s what we exactly expect from royalty!
Thanks to her elder sister’s personality issues, she’s second in line to become the Queen of Melromarc.
Melty specializes in water magic and is also a low-level magic-user. But her great diplomatic skills make her a little stronger than her sister so we gotta give her that!
16. Elrasla Grilaroc
Elrasla Grilaroc is an old woman who serves as a combat instructor in the Rock Valley and is the sole successor of the Hengen Musou style of martial arts.
Despite her old age, we see her full of energy and wisdom. A fighter without a peer, Elrasla has great mastery of energy and ki that make her a tough opponent for some.
She’s able to boost her physical strength by simply flowing her ki throughout her body and all of it happens dramatically!
Elrasla can transform anything into a lethal weapon she gets her hands on which definitely makes her a formidable opponent!
15. Bio Plant
An experiment gone wrong, Bio Plant was originally a seed that was planted by Naofumi, producing juicy tomato-like fruits. However, the plant ended up producing dangerous subspecies because of some mutation as well as its high intelligence.
The two subspecies it produced were Plant Riwe and Madoragora. Plant Riwe had a lot of vines and a large flower growing from its head. This humanoid creature released poisonous clouds when in threat.
The other subspecies that Bio Plant produced was Madoragora that resembled a large pitcher plant. It released acid from its vines, entrapping its target and eating it alive. Both these humanoid creatures gave Naofumi and his team a tough time!
14. Zombie Dragon
Zombie Dragon was originally the Dragon Emperor and the father of Wyndia (the slave bought by Naofumi). The Dragon Emperor was killed wrongfully by Ren Amaki but we can’t really blame him because he was tricked into killing it by the greedy villagers.
Ren left the corpse of the dragon to rot there and it transformed into a zombie, spreading disease everywhere in the village. The Dragon corpse gained its immense power from the hatred and betrayal and caused havoc everywhere. It was extremely strong and released poisonous gases from its mouth. Having regenerative powers, the Zombie Dragon was a tough opponent for Naofumi and his party.
13. Itsuki Kawasumi
One of the four legendary heroes, Itsuki Kawasumi was summoned as a Bow Hero from another hero along with other heroes. Being bullied as a child left him yearning for praise and feeling superior to others.
In the beginning, he was all about justice and equality. However, after some time, he ended up becoming just like others, selfish to the core!
When it comes to strength and abilities, Itsuki is pretty strong but still the weakest of the four heroes (Except Naofumi in the start). He uses the bow on his opponents and can easily take them out with it. The bow offers a number of offensive attacks like shooting stars and thunder from his arrow.
12. Ren Amaki
The Sword Hero, Ren Amaki is the only character who does not believe in treating Naofumi like shit unlike other heroes and everybody in the Capital. Though, he was unable to get all chummy with Naofumi because of his personality issues.
Ren possesses the Holy Sword that chose him as its wielder. The sword can cut through anything and everything because of how sharp it is!
Other than using the Sword, Ren possesses some mastery in water and supports magic.
After getting deceived by Malty, he unlocked the curse of Greed and Gluttony that made him go haywire. He was definitely unbeatable in that state!
11. Motoyasu Kitamura
The worst of all four heroes, Motoyasu Kitamura is the legendary Spear Hero that was summoned from another world along with the three other heroes. Being extremely gullible and naive made him take the worst decision and he ended up causing a lot of trouble, especially for Naofumi.
He’s delusional to the core and acts high and mighty all the time. Malty was able to fool him easily because of his superficial personality. In short, Malty had him wrapped around her little finger.
In terms of power levels, Motoyasu easily surpasses the three heroes (Initially).
He possesses the legendary spear that holds a lot of combat power and can easily defeat Motoyasu’s targets. His spear is able to split up into multiple spears when thrown in the direction of its target.
Motoyasu in his cursed mode is definitely not easy to deal with. He unlocked that curse of lust that boosted his physical powers and made him go berserk!
10. Biscas T. Balmus
The leader of the Church of the Three Heroes, Biscas T. Balmus is one of the major antagonists and another character that we’d like to punch in the face. He’s second only to Malty in terms of being despicable!
He hides behind the facade of being kind-hearted and just but Naofumi was able to see through his lies and figured out his twisted personality (A god complex basically).
Biscas T. Balmus possessed a replica of all four legendary weapons that our heroes possessed. The powers of all the weapons were boosted when Balmas used them on the heroes. Other than the weapons, he had the accumulated powers of his blind and staunch believers who were even ready to sacrifice their lives for him. He was definitely one of the most formidable enemies that our heroes came across!
The extremely lovable main heroine of the anime, Raphtalia has a great affinity towards Naofumi because he freed her and saved her life. She used to be a fearful and shy girl initially but Naofumi gradually transformed her into a strong-willed woman and raised her like her own daughter. But little does he know our adorable heroine has feelings for him!
Raphtalia acts as Naofumi’s sword and is true to her name. She’s great at wielding a sword and is also able to use light and dark magic. Initially, she’s not very strong but gradually, she learns a number of tricks as well as masters Hengan Muso under Elrasala’s guidance. We’ll definitely see her growth in the new season and she’ll be able to secure an even higher position on our list when we update it!
Securing the position of the most adorable character in this anime, Filo is a Filolial and accompanies Naofumi along with Raphtalia. Just like Raphtalia, Filo is extremely loyal to his master and acts as his strength.
In her human form, Filo is no more than a spoiled brat who won’t listen to Naofumi unless she’s fed and pampered properly. We also see her developing a friendship with the second princess, Melty Q Melromarc.
Filo is extremely reliable when it comes to actual physical combat and is pretty strong. Nobody can match her speed and agility. A swift learner, Filo is able to learn magic spells as well as different tricks in no time!
Filo specializes in wind magic and can control the wind, creating typhoons and tornadoes that are pretty powerful!
7. Mirelia Q. Melromarc
Everyone’s favorite character from this anime, Mirelia Q Melromarc is the Queen of Melromarc and the mother of Malty and Melty. She’s the definition of grace and justice and unlike his husband, she’s very kind to everyone. she’s got the beauty and the brains- A COMPLETE PACKAGE!
Mirelia is a proficient magic user and formerly served as a strategist for the allied army. Her magic is quite overpowered as she single handedly defeated Biscas T Balmus who even possessed the replica of all the legendary weapons. Her magic powers are definitely not to be underestimated coupled with her smart brain!
6. Therese Alexandrite
Therese Alexandrite is the companion of the Scythe Hero, L’Arc Berg Sickle, and travels with him to different places. She’s the true definition of courteous and graceful as she carries herself with grace. She’s quite shy and serious in comparison to L’Arc.
She’s said to be a jewel and is very fond of them. She cares deeply about their feelings and gets excited when she comes across new gems. We see her obtaining powerful magic from different gems and using it against her enemies and can take them out in no time. She’s also physically very strong as she was able to carry drunken L’Arc all by herself!
5. L'Arc Berg Sickle
The wielder of the Vessel Scythe, L’Arc Berg is a King from the other world beyond the wave. We see him fooling around and being carefree despite being an actual king of a country. Naofumi sees him as a brother figure because of his character and approach towards others.
His scythe holds an immense amount of energy that can cut anything in half in no time. Other than using his scythe, L’Arc is also able to use wind magic and is also very proficient in it. We’ve seen him blowing away his enemies with a single flick of the wrist by creating a powerful tornado.
4. Tyrant Dragon Rex
Sealed by the previous Legendary heroes, Tyrant Dragon Rex was a terrific monster that they could defeat even when working together. It was instead sealed away by the heroes inside a sealing stone (Phew!). The sealing stone was being carefully watched over by the nobility generation after generation.
Idol Rabier was the one who broke the seal and let the Dragon go haywire and cause havoc everywhere. There was no chance that our heroes would be able to defeat such a terrifying thing. However, with the brains of Naofumi and the help of the great Queen Fitoria, they were able to defeat the Tyrant Dragon Rex. Naofumi and the team found themselves in a bit of a pickle with this one.
Glass is a vassal wielder from another world and belongs to the race of spirit people. She has an intimidating aura that made the four heroes feel threatened and shaken (Even Naofumi). She comes from another world with the mission of killing the four heroes to save the heroes from her own world and is quite serious about it.
She possesses exceptional power that is equal to the seven-star heroes and is the vassal of the fan. She extracts her power from the soul Power of the Spirit people. The more the Soul Power, the more strong she is. She definitely makes a formidable opponent and we’ll surely see more of her in the new season!
The protagonist and an outcast of the anime, Naofumi is one of the four Legendary Heroes, possessing the Holy Shield. After being wrongfully accused of assault by Malty, he had to start everything from scratch and made his way up to the top.
Naofumi used to be a positive person before getting wrongfully accused. He grew extremely spiteful of the world afterward and had trouble trusting anyone. But with the help of Raphtalia and Filo, he was able to regain some of his humanity and the trio became extremely strong together.
Unfortunately, Naofumi did not possess any special ability or ever physical proficiency to be in any kind of battle. But with the help of Raphtalia and Filo, he was able to unlock a massive number of skills and learned different abilities that made him stand tall amongst the other heroes.
The Holy Shield he possessed grew stronger and stronger gradually and was not only used for defense but also for offense. Naofumi’s curse mode is extremely dangerous for his enemies and even his team members as he’s not able to control it well. Naofumi is definitely one of the strongest characters of this anime!
Fitoria is the Queen of all Filolials and is a hidden seven-star hero. She’s actually supposed to be the carriage hero and lives in isolation in a forest. Though she interacts with the heroes, she’s indifferent towards most people because of her trust issues.
According to Naofumi, she’s just like Filo, a brat who loves eating. Her human form might look weak and feeble but she’s the strongest of all the characters in The Rising of The Shield Hero. She shows a lot of transformations from the size of a normal filolial to the size of a huge building!
She has lived many centuries and possesses ancient knowledge about most things. Her magic is extremely powerful. She was able to take out the Tyrant Dragon Rex all by herself without even breaking a sweat. That’s how powerful she is!
The Rising of the Shield Hero has a set of versatile characters with unique powers with the potential of surpassing each other with every battle they fight!
The monsters and spirits in this anime are also extremely overpowered to the point where they leave the heroes in a pickle. But with the power of teamwork, luck, and big brains, they’re able to take them out. Always.
I hope you liked our list of the strongest characters on The Rising of the Shield Hero. We’ll come back soon with new updates!
