We all know the feeling when you have work to do and your deadline is so close you might as well give it up. How wonderful would it be if you could just stop time or even better: rewinding time to the moment you actually should have started. Same goes for going super saiyan, this could put all fights to an end and can even safe earth from all kinds of threats. Sounds like total nonsense? Not in a world were anime powers are reality!
1. Super Saiyan (Dragon Ball Z)
Just like in the intro, going super saiyan means getting so powerful you can take down everything that stands in your way. This power makes your hair go blond and multiplies the user’s normal amount of power with 50 times. The only restriction for this is that you’ve got to be a Saiyan though….
2. Being a zombie (Kore wa zombie desu ka/ Are you a zombie?)
To be honest, this power might not be as powerful like the others since it has got a lot of weaknesses and you can’t take down others with it in the blink of an eye. But still, being a zombie is awesome because unlike humans you can use up to 200% of your muscle strenght and it’s much harder for you to die. Just stay away from fire and sun and you’re ready to fight!
3. Alchemy (full metal alchemist)
This power got to be the most realistic one in this list since alchemy is actually being practised in the real world. In this anime, alchemy is mostly used to make weapons but you can make almost everything with it as long as you’ve got the ingredients for it.
4. Death Note (Death Note)
This power shows that it doesn’t need to be super flashy to be the most deadliest. Whoever’s name is written in it dies within a certain time limit. As for the user, you’re free to choose your victims and how their dead will be. And since they will (normally) die from a heart attack, finding the murderer is almost impossible.
5. Devil fruit (One Piece)
This cursed and rather foul-tasting fruit will grant the user great powers which may vary from transformations to elemental and bodily alterations. This differs for each person and each type of fruit since there are a lot of variations.
6. Vectors (Elfen Lied)
This power, used by a human race called Diclonius, are invisible arms with a span ranging from 3 to 11 meters. Their strenght also differs but atleast it’s good enough to be able to break almost anything.And one thing is sure, you can kill people with this in the most horrifying way possible. There’s is no guarantee the user will survive though.
7. Geass (Code Geass)
You only need to look at someone to get control of his mind, sounds like a dream coming true right? This must be also what anti-hero Lelouch is thinking every time he’s ordering his enemies around. Whether he is demanding them to die or make him their king. All they can say is: “Yes, Your Highness!”
8. Ultimate Vampire (Hellsing Ultimate)
Once you’re an Ultimate Vampire you’re like the embodiment of awesomeness yourself. Not only are you immortal, you’re also superfast, got superhuman strenght, can teleportate yourself, got superhuman senses, can shapeshift, use telepathy and hypnosis, got sharpshooting skills, can absorb memories etc…..
9. Vacuum creation (Darker Than Black)
Just like the name says so, this power has the ability to create vacuum wherever you want. In case this doesn’t sound scary: vacuum means an area void of matter. Making an area being vacuum means sucking out all the air of it killing everyone in that area.
10. Sharingan (Naruto)
One of the most known anime must be Naruto and of course there are some nice superpowers throughout the whole serie, Sharingan being one of them. This power from the Uchiha clan allows the user to predict movements and see chakra. Once this power reach its max the user can trap his enemies in painful illusions and create black flames which can’t be extinguished.
11. Immortality (Baccano!)
Instead of being superpowerful or having some fancy skills, immortality makes the user impossible to be beaten. But that’s not all, those with immortality will also be able to regenerate from any injury and when they are “killed” in battle they will just regenerate and come back to life.
12. Demon weapons (Soul Eater)
Demon weapons are actually students who have got the ability to change themselves into living weapons. Meisters are the one using them. Once a Meister teams up with a demon weapon their strenght will double due to merging the resonance of their souls.
13. Zanpakuto (Bleach)
Zanpakuto are the weapons of a shinigami or soul reaper. They are the ones who govern the soul of the dead and take down creepy creatures called “Hollows”. Just like all the shinigami’s are unique, their weapons are unique too which means they also differ in power.
14. Ultimate Telekinesis (Akira)
One word to describe this power: Destruction! Where normal telekinesis can only make stuff float, this power enables the user to destroy objects in a large range around him/her. However, this superpowered telekinesis can cause intense pain for the user. And once you lose control over this, well you can probably imagine it…..
15. Djinn (Magi, The labyrinth of magic)
Djinns are lifeforms created from the Rukh (which is similiar to life energy). Each of them represents a certain element and to master them one needs to capture a dungeon first. This is why those who mastered the djinn’s powers are called a “dungeon capturer”. But once you’ve mastered one, you’re able to use the djinn’s element in battle and you can even change your own weapon into a djinn weapon and use “Djinn equip”.
