We all love anime in which the main character is a powerhouse. The main character would keep the full powers a secret! This holding back causes a lot of curiosity too. We have also seen instances where the main character is transported into another world and turns into a total badass.
However, we are going to focus on Top 20 Anime Where MC Is Strong From The Start And Surprises Everyone When He Shows His Powers.

20. Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs
At the number 20th spot, we have Kogarashi from Yuragi-Sou No Yuuna-San. From the looks, he looks like a super tough teenager with rough hair and appearance. Despite looking all rowdy, he has a rather kind personality. He only loses his coolness when someone he cares about is getting hurt.
And that’s where he usually reveals his spiritual powers. He has the most exciting spirit abilities when it comes to actual combat. Moreover, we have seen him surprising us a bunch of times. Mainly when he gets possessed by ‘Yuuna’ who is a ghost in the series, his power, strength, speed, and mental ability far exceeds most of the characters in that series.
19. Sirius the Jaegar
Yuliy is tall, slim, blue-eyed, and blue hair with a white extension upfront. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the background, Yuliy is a half-human and half jaeger, In other words, a beast. So what makes Yuliy a candidate for our competitive list?
Right from the start, Yuliy is an overpowered character, and the moment he revealed his Jaeger blood, things for INTERESTING! Being a werewolf, Yuliy has some superhuman strengths with inhumane senses. Once he goes berserk, you can’t make him calm down, and that’s seen throughout in the anime itself on multiple instances.
Having a blood lusty and powerful character on our list was a must that makes Yuliy one of the best-overpowered characters who can surprise anyone at any time.
18. Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha
If you’ve watched the hero is cautious, you know from the start what sort of a character Seiya has. A cocky guy who knows what he’s capable of. Throughout the anime, Seiya has been dominating each and every opponent that comes to him.
The main reason for that is the fact that Seiya is always self-reflecting on his powers and strengths. Even if he’s overpowered, he’s training every time! By evolving more and more, he gets stronger crazily, which makes him a totally overpowered character right from the start.
Another aspect of Seiya that we’d like to mention is that he never loses. Part of the reason is his overwhelming strength, but there’s a catch. Seiya is also the strongest when it comes to his mentality. He will train more and more to become crazy powerful that results in his benefit.
17. Monster Strike
The anime adaption of an RPG game ‘Monster Strike.’ Moreover, it is jam-packed with action and a series of badass MC moments. Ren Homura has just moved back to his hometown – doesn’t remember much about it anyways. He has some flashbacks from time to time. After shifting to the hometown, Ren finds a mysterious game with the name ‘Monster Strike’, and he decides to play the game.
After getting transported into the game, he is totally stuck with the RPG as his life. In theory, the game works by summoning monsters, and each play has a unique monster. Unlike others, Ren has the dragon Oregon who literally slays!
In anime, Ren is shown to be quite overpowered by the fact that he has constantly surprised us with his overpowered dragon and expert tactics in battles.
16. Assassins Pride
He is basically one of the main characters of this series. Kufa is a half-human and half-vampire belonging to the most elite class of monsters.
When we talk about Kufa’s appearance, he is a tall guy with dark purple hair. However, when he turns into the vampire form, his hair changes to white and his eyes contain a blue glow.
Being half-human and half-vampire, his strength is often misjudged. Even though he’s been mostly holding back, once his vampire form takes place, no one gets out alive. On the other hand, Kufa has also shown a soft side to him as well. As Melida’s tutor, he went through extensive training to make sure that his pupils don’t get into any sort of trouble.
But oh boy, all in all, Kufa has surprised us a lot of time which makes him a pretty badass MC from time to time.
15. Sky Wizard Academy
Kanata Age is on our list. Also called as “Black Master Swordsman”, we can just guess how powerful of a character he might be.
Personality-wise, he cares for his friends and would give them jobs they won’t do to make them surpass their limits in a challenging way.
As an instructor of a team that lost 100 matches consecutively, he had a lot of work to do throughout the series. We get to see his most badass moves that left everyone in shock. But the most exciting power we are going to talk about is “Black Aura”
Black Aura is a power that he has used a couple of times in the anime but it is super strong. This power gives him a boost in every single way it can. He was able to beat chimera ant and beetles with a single strike. These enemies were causing troubles and our protagonist, Kanata came in and portrayed this power that gave people jaw drop.
13. The Asterisk War
At number 13, we have Amagiri Ayato. A character who is trying to find the purpose of his life. He has a respectful and polite personality that everyone seems to love.
Ayato’s family has a dojo in which they teach some ancient techniques to fight when the time of disasters would come. Ayato also respected his older sister very much and swore to protect her by any means. However, she disappeared at some point in the Anime.
Before disappearing, she put a seal on Ayato that would prevent him from using all of his powers unless he trained himself and unlocked those powers all by himself.
Ayato managed to break the seals and throughout the story, we get to see a handful of techniques used by him.
As a sword fighter, he knows a lot of techniques in battle. From one sword style to double sword extreme, his powers have no limits. But we are going to talk about a particular one that left everyone in shock. That power is called “Shiki”
What’s crazy is that he can even detect invisible things and actually fight with them.
12. 07 Ghost
At number 12, we have Teito Klien from 07 Ghost. Teito’s childhood was rather happy and pure-hearted until the war broke out. His memories were erased and he was made a slave who will fight till the end.
A 15-year-old boy who had to see so much in life, that’s sad. Even though he had a sad past, he still wouldn’t budge and decided not to show his emotions to anyone as crying is of no use. During the exam, he showed extraordinary skills that are worth mentioning in this video.
Teito’s ability is called “Zaiphon” and he can manipulate this ability to surpass his limits. We have seen variations of his powers throughout the season. But his abilities made everyone vary from him.
At the academy, he became the top graduate of his class as his powers were unrivaled by any other student. Using his Zaiphon, he can legit destroy his enemies, or even make a shield that is strong enough to save a big number of people at the same time.
Moreover, we’ve also seen him flying by using his zaiphon powers. In addition to this power, his hand to hand combat is strong enough to make everyone jaw drop. He has killed many monsters using none but his own combat powers that left everyone in shock.
Considering all these plus points, Teito is one of the coolest characters on our list today.
11. When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace
10. High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World
Choyoyu or High School Prodigies Have it Easy even in another world is an Isekai Anime where an airplane accident happens to have 7 high school students in it. When they wake up, they find themselves in the middle of a magical world. Beautiful, isn’t it? On the first look, we thought that these high school kids won’t survive an era with no modern tech – just a kingdom run by guilds and magic.
But, to our surprise, these kids are the high school prodigies and they don’t even break a sweat. Well, with the story aside, let’s talk about our Main Character which is “Tsukasa Mikogami”. Tsukasa is the reason Choyoyu is on our list today.
Due to his genius intellect, Tsukasa is the prime minister of Japan at a relatively young age. Like, C’mon, do you think a high school student will be able to run a whole of Japan? Aside from that, he is also running the high school club called Seven Prodigies.
So what makes Tsukasa an overpowered Isekai main character? Tsukasa has the best deduction and planning skills out of all the seven prodigies. The power to be always correct is something only an overpowered Isekai character would possess. So in short, Tsukasa’s intelligence is what made him worthy of being on our list today.
9. The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar
8. Isekai Cheat Magician
7. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
5. How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord
Harutora from the Tokyo Ravens is on number 4. He has a kind personality that everyone seems to love. However, he can sometimes be clueless as he fails to get the feelings of many girls that would fall for him, occasionally.
In the Anime, to make sure that Harutora lives a stable life, his father sealed away his powers at a very early stage. But this really made him suffer as he couldn’t use his powers initially. Even at the most stressful times when his friends were being defeated inside the academy, he would lose to the opponents.
But at some point in anime, he awakened his powers and really made everyone so surprised. After awakening his powers, he dealt with the Seishuku temple single-handedly which his friends were having problems with.
As the story progressed, his knowledge about Imperial Magic Style increased, making him the most powerful character of the series.
3. World Trigger
Probably the most exciting MC on the list is Yuma Kuga. He’s a neighbor which means he’s half-human and half humanoid. Yuma is totally overpowered throughout the series. Everyone would think of him as a pushover and a rather weak character. At the same time, he would do something exciting enough to have everyone’s attention and he’d constantly gain recognition and popularity.
As a neighbor, he doesn’t know much about Japanese culture as he is from another world. His personality is logical and would work with logic, though calm at the same time.
Talking about his powers and oh boy, they never end. From combat to the most powerful technique, he had surprised and intrigued everyone in the border staff and even some of the strongest villains.
His most prominent and strongest power is his Black Trigger. The primary power of his black trigger is to create seals that would help him in combat, boosting his physical and mental strength to the level that even A-Rank agents wouldn’t be able to keep up with him.
Both defensive and aggressive, his black trigger can also aid him in taking some attacks with no damage. The side effect of his black trigger gave him the power to detect lies. That’s why he can be rather dangerous even for his own allies.
Yuma Kuga has excellent battle strength and is a beast in terms of combat. Totally worth putting him on our list.
