The baby Saiyan Son Goku was tasked with wiping out the Earth as a child
Saiyan Son Goku was sent to Earth as an infant to destroy it. Dragon Ball’s protagonist is named after him. He grew up and even became a defender of Earth because of a memory-altering accident. With his intrinsic abilities and capabilities, he saved the cosmos and Earth from catastrophe.
In the anime community, Goku’s power is well-known. Even by the most ardent supporters, he is regarded as the most strong character. However, as more anime was produced, it’s possible that some characters could truly defeat him.
1. Saitama from One Punch Man
One Punch Man’s protagonist is Saitama. Saitama, as implied by his name, is a one-punch warrior. He’s strong and quick, too. He had no enemies that could withstand even one of his blows (an earnest punch). If he can fight artificial beings, it suggests that he can beat Goku. His talents go beyond human bounds.
2. Nanika from Hunter x Hunter
Alluka, the younger sister of Killua, is Nanika’s host. If the person fits the three conditions, she can grant any wish. It is capable of granting an illimitable number of desires. It gets more difficult to make subsequent requests as one’s wish grows in magnitude. Two people will die immediately if the following person refuses or fails to complete the requests.
Nanika’s strength is comparable to that of a regular youngster because she’s within Alluka’s body. Its physical abilities can improve if it doesn’t chosen to switch to a stronger body.
3. Eri from My Hero Academia
As with Nanika, it’s easy to overlook Eri’s abilities because she’s a little kid. She has a power she calls “Rewind,” which allows her to go back in time and rejuvenate an old body. It is also capable of reversing the effects of any alterations made to the target’s body. She can only go back in time to the point before the person was ever born.
By reversing the target’s body before the quirk developed, her blood can erase peculiarities that can prevent activation. She has the power to go back in time and see Goku as an infant or a fetus.
4. Ryuk from Death Note
He is a member of the Shinigami. He is the one who gave Light a Death Note in an oblique way. Death manipulation, extreme strength, and speed are only some of the skills he possesses. He can also take away a person’s life. Even though he is capable of flying and being vulnerable at night, he is also completely undetectable (except to people who touched or held Death Note).
He’s also a well-rounded individual, which can aid him in devising war plans. He can’t be easily defeated because of his durability and immortality. Unless Goku is able to see Ryuk, he cannot claim to be a shinobi.
5. Shigeo Kageyama from Mob Psycho 100
Shigeo Kageyama, better known as Mob, is the protagonist of Mob Psycho 100 and is also known as Mob. Due to his sluggish physical condition, he appears incapable of defeating Goku. Although he may store psychic energy in order to strengthen his intrinsic power, his talents rely on his incredible psychic powers. It’s possible for him to employ chlorokinesis and become completely obsessed.
His telekinesis and barrier-making abilities come in handy during conflicts. Other skills include psychic energy absorption, psychic energy transference, spiritual awareness, and astral projection. He has the ability to employ his powers to defeat Goku before the Saiyan can even begin to act.
6. Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto
Naruto’s Sasuke Uchiha is a central character. He has been a powerful figure throughout Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, and Boruto. A kid prodigy because of his ability to compete with the strongest shinobi.
Sasuke’s chakra is believed to be strong because he is the reincarnation of Indra. Indra’s Arrow, the Six Paths Chibaku Tensei, and Rinnegan are only a few of the many skills he possesses that can help him easily defeat Goku.
7. Lelouch Lamperouge from Code Geass
In the Holy Britannian Empire, Lelouch vi Britannia (also known as Lelouch Lamperouge) is the Eleventh Prince. His most important power is the Power of Absolute Obedience, which allows him to hypnotically dominate the thoughts of others simply by making eye contact with them.
In addition, he is a formidable opponent because of his great intellect. He is also devious and clever. Goku is a perfect target because he’s innocent and he can simply commit suicide by commanding him to do so.
8. Naruto Uzumaki from Naruto
Naruto’s major role in the story is immediately apparent from the show’s name. He lacks Goku’s physical strength, but he makes up for it in other ways. Naruto’s Sage Art: Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken and his ability to heal quickly make him a formidable opponent for Goku.
In addition to his superhuman speed and strength, he can sustain himself with ease. Wind Release: Rasenshuriken has proven effective in defeating powerful foes if those are not enough. Naruto’s ability to defeat a god, Momoshiki Otsutsuki, shows that he is unstoppable in battle.
9. Anos Voldigoad from The Misfit of Demon King Academy
Demon King Anos Voldigoad has returned in the form of Voldigoad. The impression he conveys will be one of authority, and no one can argue with that. Anos is more than just a magically endowed being.
His magical prowess dwarfs that of any other character in the series. In addition, he possesses tremendous strength and quickness in his body. Other skills include root intimidation, spell theory, and the blood of the Demon King. His immortality implies he can never die. It’s also possible that Goku may have been killed by this guy’s sword.
10. Alucard from Hellsing
The Hellsing Organization’s Alucard is a formidable weapon. He’s a vampire with a reputation for being fearsome. When it comes to strength, speed, and agility, he’s got it all. His strength and stamina have been boosted, making him a long cry from the average human. Extrasensory perception allows him to regenerate.
He’s immortal to round out the package. He can manipulate blood and absorb souls because he is a vampire. If the two ever engage in combat, Goku may find himself in a precarious position due to Vegeta’s superior powers.
11. Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Once again, this list serves as a timely reminder that you should never base your opinion of a book just on its cover. Even while Haruhi may appear to be a pretty girl who only cares about aliens, time travelers, and espers, she is actually a godlike being. She has the power to alter, reshape, and even destroy the fabric of existence.
She has the ability to create a safe haven or a new world that is impervious to disaster. Surprise! She doesn’t even realize she has this power! Depending on her attitude, she can use her powers to their full potential. With her abilities, she is also able to construct time loops.
12. Jiren from Dragon Ball
Dragon Ball Z character Jiren. He’s a proud member of the Pride Troopers and is well-liked. It is possible that Jiren’s victory over Mastered Ultra Instinct proves that he is stronger than Goku.
All of his prior adversaries are aware of his invincibility. Even while his assaults appear simple, they are always extremely effective and swift. The intended recipient has no idea what’s coming for him. Additionally, he has access to cutting-edge movement analysis software, which offers him an edge in a battle.
