|The Seven Deadly Sins|
A story filled with different powerful races such as demons, goddesses, fairies, giants as well as humans, a question of who are the strongest characters, races, groups or factions is always asked inevitably. For an anime such as The Seven Deadly Sins, such is the case. Personally, this holy war plot is something that I could compare with No Game No Life’s Great War between the Olde Deus, Saint Seiya’s War of Gods, and so many cliche stories from other generic shounen, action-adventure anime. However, the Seven Deadly Sins offer a rather common dish that easily grasps or caught people’s attention but at the same time added exciting spices on it. To be specific its story, characters, animation, and visuals are very generic but executed in a very catchy manner. The hype behind the story of both the anime and manga is one of its strength aside from its really interesting characters, their abilities, and undeniably has one of the best anime soundtracks ever.

Speaking of strength, the Seven Deadly Sins never comes short with logic-defying powerful characters that could easily take our breath away at how overpowered they could be. To be honest, the Seven Deadly Sins universe is among those story with a generic plot with overpowered characters, interesting enough to catch you by surprise on who is strong among them and powerful enough to be compared against giant shounen characters such as Goku, Naruto, Natsu Dragneel, Luffy, and other names on the same league as those previously mentioned. Therefore, here’s our list of the strongest characters from The Seven Deadly Sins based on the currently existing chapters of the manga as of August 24, 2018.

7 Deadly Sins Most Powerful List
This muscle-head immortal is in our 20th place. Currently, he sits at the bottom of all the members of the 7 sins. However, as the manga progress, it seems that he may stumble upon some superpower during his stay in the purgatory that may actually change the course of the story.

Our cute giantess is currently in 19th place. Despite having her power upgrade due to learning the dance of Drole, she’s didn’t display the full potential yet of her newly claimed superpower. Furthermore, by brute force she’s one of those few characters with the highest potential yet she also needs to be clever and focus on her mental strength.
The greatest magician of the current era Merlin is in our 18th place. Despite being gifted by both the Demon King and the Supreme Deity, we couldn’t see that her blessings were utilized during the run of the story. However, her intelligence is definitely her strongest asset and she seems to have an endless potential to give surprises to other characters and eventually caught them off guard.
The puppet and great manipulator among the 7 sins are in our 17th place. No matter what, this character always caught us by surprise. As per the latest chapters of the manga, it was revealed that he’s able to manipulate the memories of both Meliodas, the Demon King, and almost every top-tier demons by changing it and inserting a goddess within their rank. In addition, he is also responsible for turning the most powerful of the Four Archangel into a member of the demon clan’s Ten Commandments. With this achievement alone, he has enough abilities to directly impact everyone’s character’s lives and change it according to his will.

16. Harlequin (King)
Our Grizzly’s Sin of Sloth is in 16th place. The fairy king who always gets impulsive and sometimes unreasonable but also has a very powerful offensive and defensive capacity is among those few characters with the highest potential to enter the top 10 of this list soon. His display of power after passing Gloxinia’s trial is truly commendable and now that his wings finally appear. He could eventually display the full potential of his fairy power anytime soon.
The legendary king of the giant race whose strength and size are even larger than any force among his clan. His dance is said to be as strong and impressive as a falling meteorite that could make his enemies cower in fear. Although, this big man seems to hide a shameless secret during his fight against Zeldoris from the previous Holy War. He finally able to redeem himself when he sacrificed his life to save the members of the 7 Deadly Sins together with Gloxinia against the demon Chandler.
The first fairy king that fought as a member of STIGMA from the previous Holy War 3,000 years ago. This predecessor of King is undeniably a force to reckon with, an extremely powerful entity together with Drole from the Giant clan who both became a member of the Demon Clan’s Elite 10 Commandments. His immense healing ability together with his endurance and durability is enough to make him stronger than other characters in the story.
One of the Four Archangel from the Goddess clan, Tarmiel is also one of the commanders of STIGMA. As an archangel, Tarmiel sits atop the hierarchy of the Goddess clan and on par when it comes to fighting strength against a member of the 10 Commandments.
Another member of the Four Archangel of the Goddess clan. Sariel is a cool-headed and logical character which is an innate ability that someone must possess when fighting. His strength is on par with Tarmiel but his intelligence puts him a little higher than his fellow archangel.
One of the highest-ranked demon from the Demon clan. Chandler is the teacher of Meliodas and is the one that taught him the full-counter style. A demon whose strength hone by experience and magic. Being able to outwit the greatest magician of the current era, it’s no doubt that Chandler is a top-tier magician among the demon clan. Chandler is the one that killed both Gloxinia and Drole without getting heavily injured is proof of his strength.
A member of the 10 commandments who made me remember Suwa from Orange TV anime. His character suddenly grown on me after finishing the latest chapters of the manga. His strength alone will not make him reach this 9th place but still, he’s strong enough to contend with the previously mentioned members of the 7 Deadly Sins. His trump card is his Indura form on which he sacrificed 6 of his hearts to become a legendary beast of the demon clan with no heart, mind, or soul and only exist for the purpose of running amok on fire and become a killing machine.
The leader of STIGMA and one of the Four Archangel. He is far more superior than Tarmiel and Sariel but second only to Mael when it comes to strength. A rather manipulative entity behind his gentle and pretty standard aristocratic appearance. Being at the higher echelon of the Goddess clan hierarchy, he could contend with strong members of the 10 commandments and even endured an attack from two Induras.
One of the strongest members of the 10 commandments. Derieri’s strength relies on her unbreakable combo which damages goes even higher as her combos go unstoppable. In addition, she’s also capable of reaching the Indura form similar to Monspeet but on a higher scale as she’s more of an offensive type while Monspeet is ranges from between an offensive and supportive type.
The younger brother of Meliodas and also known as the Executioner from the Demon clan. Being in-charge of executing all the traitors of the clan even those entities that sit on top of the hierarchy, Zeldoris is a powerful entity that couldn’t be touch by anybody. His commandment is capable of brainwashing the people and he even caught Merlin off-guard when the latter tried to sneakily spy the Kingdom of Camelot under his control.
The princess of the Goddess clan. Under normal circumstances, she wouldn’t be here however, she has that unique and special ability that could control her opponents in a docile yet irresistible way.
5. Estarossa / Mael
The strongest of the Four Archangel Mael who was turned into Estarossa by Gowther who manipulated his memory as well as most of the Demon Clan. This insurmountable entity is powerful by several folds compared to Ludociel and is also considered as the strongest member of the 10 commandments.
4. Escanor (The One)
Considered by many to be the strongest member of the 7 Deadly Sins until Meliodas fully recovered his strength. Although, Escanor’s power level is quite inconsistent but his strength is something that couldn’t be questioned and his existence is an abnormal one that could surprise any entity in the story. In the upcoming Seven Deadly Sins – Wrath of the Gods, we will finally discover the source of Escanor power which happened to be a blessing from a special entity.
The protagonist of The Seven Deadly Sins. The captain of the 7 sins and the former leader of the 10 commandments. The prince of the demon clan and successor of the Demon King. Well, knowing such facts, it’s enough to back Meliodas as the strongest existence in the story sooner or later. He is currently one of the most overpowered anime characters on the same league as some of the most popular shounen anime’s main character.
2. Supreme Deity
The leader of the Goddess clan whose existence is shrouded in mystery. Not much is known about her but she’s on par with the Demon King in terms of strength and also possesses an insurmountable power among the strongest characters in the story.
1. Demon King
The epitome of strength and terror in the Seven Deadly Sins universe. He is the father of Meliodas and Zeldris. Just like the Supreme Deity, not much is known about the Demon King rather than the fact that he is responsible for the current cursed put upon Meliodas and is also an existence with a terrifying presence that far surpassed other characters aside from the Supreme Deity.
That ends our list of strongest characters from the Seven Deadly Sins, though the following are some of the honorable mentions:
- Arthur (with the Excalibur, he could eventually surpass the legends of the past)
