Seven capital sins has captured anime fans since its debut nearly a decade ago. Based on the Japanese fantasy manga of the same name, Seven capital sins follows Elizabeth, a princess who recruits a group of disbanded warriors to take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights.
Ever since its premiere, viewers have become hooked on the show’s characters and the countless battles they take part in. But which character is the best fighter? Which surpasses them all?
Here are the ten strongest Seven capital sins characters, classified.
Diane’s ability to quickly reach 30 feet tall is very useful in battle. However, Diane does not like fighting or violence at all and tries to be as peaceful as possible. Knowing your strength but refusing to use it is a rare skill, but when Diane uses her powers, fans see her tapping into her maximum strength levels.
Even though she represents purity in the Ten Commandments, that doesn’t take away from Derieri’s power. Her powers essentially render her incapable of being harmed. Even before she ended up being absorbed, she was able to force repeated attacks during her fights that would never end. She also has the ability to reincarnate when she dies and will continue to be able to retain her ability to repeat attacks.
Having super strength is one thing, but having super brains like Ludociel takes it to a whole new level. Superintelligence can be incredibly useful, especially as one gets older. Ludociel is also the leader of the Archangels, and anyone who has ever had to be a leader knows that the mental toughness you need to have is truly top notch. You need to know each person you are responsible for and know how to direct them properly. Ludociel also has magic powers, which can certainly be useful.
Although she’s not the best or most skilled fighter in the world, Elizabeth still has some of the best magic around. This allows him to really make up for his lack of combat skills. Her magic allows her to force her opponents to no longer want to be in the fight, allowing her to remain unscathed during the fight. While she might not have the best combat skills and powers, whenever you don’t have to get hurt during a battle, she’s a great power to have.
True to the theme of magical powers, Merlin is the best and most powerful magician in the series. This allows her to take on just about anyone who dares to meet her in battle. Besides being a powerful magician, Merlin is also one of the most intelligent characters in the series. Being able to combine both brain power and magic makes her incredibly dangerous.
5. Escanor one
Having a power level that puts you in the same conversation as the Demon King is very impressive, and Escanor is certainly of that caliber. Unfortunately, he is not able to maintain his maximum power levels for very long; usually up to a minute. He is also unable to access his powers at night, making him a huge liability.
However, the fact that he is so powerful and strong when he is at his peak sets him above some of the other characters in the series. If he learns how to be able to retain his powers for longer, he will undoubtedly climb even higher on this list.
In combat, one of the most important things you can have is a high pain tolerance, which is exactly what Ban possesses. After not having a high pain tolerance for so long, it seems Ban has learned after spending so much time in purgatory. He’s able to Snatch more easily now, especially later in battles when his enemies aren’t as strong anymore. Ban was also able to last around 60 years while battling the Demon King. He certainly became one of the most complete and strong characters in the series.
Mael, being the original bearer of the sun, obviously possesses great power and strength. Additionally, Mael is able to use his powers even after the sun goes down, one of the most useful traits that sets him apart from others on the list. Mael is often compared to Escanor, and while Escanor certainly has a higher cap than Mael, a battle of strength comes down to Mael being able to last longer, as well as use his powers after the sun goes down. .
2. Demon King
Demon King finally sets the standard of strength in The seven deadly sins. He is the one everyone admires and compares his skills with. Even so, that’s not all Demon King brings to the table. Demon King is said to have a power level of 750,000, which puts him at the top of the leaderboard in terms of levels. Demon King has been known to crush those who dare to come against him, usually with relative ease. He has all the skills and abilities to withstand just about anything that comes his way.
Defeating the Demon King is one thing, but absorbing him and all of the Ten Commandments and being able to control the Demon King takes things to a whole new level. Even after absorbing the Demon King, Meliodas still has his normal form as well as access to all the powers he held before the absorption.
How did he defeat Demon King? Well, spending thousands of years in purgatory only fighting Demon King and learning the skills to complete the task certainly helped. While most of this list is certainly up for debate, there’s no denying that Meliodas is definitely the strongest of them all.
