Is Diablo The Strongest Demon Lord

One has to give credit to anime's roster of demon lords. Without them, the protagonists wouldn't have much of a villain to shout at. Not only do they represent the ceiling of anime power and capability, but they also serve as a near-impossible goal for many anime main characters. Of course, there's also the fact that the typical anime demon lord is charismatic and is easily a somewhat likable character for some despite being "evil." It's a tried and tested trope that isn't about to stop anytime soon, meaning the number of demon lords will just keep growing. To keep better track of who's who when it comes to hierarchy, here are the 10 most powerful or successful ones. Updated June 15, 2022, by Sid Natividad: Demon lord anime is quite a hot genre these days, especially with new titles popping up and new demon lords contending for the Hellish throne. Sure enough, some of them consist of the strongest demons in anime, and these demon lords are no slouches, so it only seems fair to recognize their powers. Demon lord anime are quite ubiquitous, after all. There are more of them around than ever, and, as such, five more contenders have been added to this demon lord anime ranking. In time, people will get to know the full extent of Baby Beel's power. However, for the majority of his form in Beelzebub, he's mostly just a baby demon who urinates metric gallons (enough to fill houses), much to his foster parent's misfortune. Baby Beel or Beelzebub IV is the son of Beelzebub III and the successor to the Demon World.

He's prophesied to bring about the destruction of the human world, just as soon as he starts growing up. He's more powerful in terms of potential compared to the other demon lords here, but, even as an infant, Baby Beel is already quite the troublemaker. The belated follow-up series to InuYasha paints Sesshomaru in a lighter shade where he even has a kid and seems to be a decent parent. Back in the original anime, however, Sesshomaru was quite the menace and a constant thorn in Inuyasha and Kagome's sides. He's a full-blooded demon, meaning he's automatically more powerful than his half-blood brother. Apart from the full superhuman package of super-strength, speed, durability, reflexes, and regeneration, he's also immortal and possesses some impressive demonic techniques that have caused even the main antagonist (who's also a demon) to acknowledge that Sesshomaru is more powerful. Diablo from How Not to Summon a Demon Lord was but a mere video game character controlled by an introverted protagonist. But, since the anime is an isekai, said human protagonist was reincarnated and became Diablo who also happens to be the strongest being in his own video game world. He's so powerful that he even holds back his skills when fighting other players' characters. As additional proof of his powers. Diablo also quickly enslaved the two powerful mage girls who summoned him with the goal of chaining him.

He can create lieutenants just by giving them a bit of blood.

Of course, his human side has no powers whatsoever, but Diablo has a plethora of spells, abilities, and equipment that allow him to dominate just about anyone and anything in his world. Speaking of immortal demon lords, Muzan Kibutsuji is fast gaining notoriety thanks to the latest season of Demon Slayer. While he doesn't make too many appearances in that anime, he's still very much the final boss and the source of most demons in the series. He can create lieutenants just by giving them a bit of blood. As a demon lord, he also possesses the typical superhuman starter pack - but where he shines against the Demon Slayer corps is his intellect. Muzan is frighteningly clever and sharp; this has allowed him to maintain the long-standing feud between him and his nemesis organization. As a demon, he's also a success story, since he's supposed to be more than 1,000 years old. Albedo from Overlord isn't even the most powerful evil being in her own anime. That title belongs to Ainz Ooal Gown but he's an undead sorcerer so, technically, is not a demon lord. Even so, Albedo is at Ainz's side at all times, and much to his luck, she's the most powerful Succubus in the series. Albedo usually doesn't even have to demonstrate her magical and demonic spells in her fight against Ainz's enemies.

She has an inherent full suite of superhuman capabilities along with an ax and a set of armor that turns her into a powerhouse who can do most of Ainz's dirty work for him. Meliodas is an odd one as far as demon lords go. He was once one of the finest demon lords in his own mythos, being second only to the Demon King. However, he was greatly humbled after being cursed to witness his true love die hundreds of times and be reborn in an endless cycle. Thus, in the Seven Deadly Sins' main timeline, he's a more human and boyish version of his former self. From time to time, however, his old self will re-awaken and he'll revert back to his demon lord form. In such a state, Meliodas becomes a night-unstoppable force of destruction. Coming up next is also another recent demon lord who is unapologetically omnipotent with little to no backstory: Ryomen Sukuna from Jujutsu Kaisen. Sukuna was technically defeated by Jujutsu sorcerers, but he still managed to survive, thanks to his severed fingers. If he does manage to unite and collect all those missing digits, he can arise again and practically destroy the world as only a literal handful few can stand in his way - and they're all mortals. Even in his defeated form, Sukuna can still wreak havoc and dominate any curse-wielder, including Jujutsu sorcerers. Mehpisto Pheles or Samael is actually just the second strongest demon lord in Blue Exorcist.

39;s a bit emaciated after his refusal to consume humans.

The strongest is Lucifer but there are already too many Lucifers or Satans here, so Samael's in luck, he gets a spot. In any case, he's no slouch despite being second. As a demon lord, being called a "devil" is more fitting for Mephisto Pheles. He's a certified trickster and typically "assists" the series' protagonist with an upper motive. Mephisto Pheles is too powerful for that. Raizen from the classic Yu Yu Hakusho appears as a shell of his former self. He's a bit emaciated after his refusal to consume humans. That very well means he's not at his prime anymore. Even so, he's still either the strongest or the second strongest among the Three Kings who are S-Class demons in the anime. Back in his prime, he could have easily killed the other two members of the Three Kings. As far as his powers are concerned, Raizen's immense demonic strength is what stands out as well as his ability to possess his descendants.

It was even said that Raizen shakes the whole Earth when he powers up. Despite the Namek appearance and origins, King Piccolo (the first one) is considered as a "Demon King" in the Dragon Ball mythos. He's also one of the first powerful boss enemies that Son Goku had to deal with. In terms of strength, Piccolo was apparently, able to level a city in just a heartbeat. He's also supposedly stronger than most other Saiyan and it's only through friends and miraculous circumstances that a young Goku was able to defeat him. Being a Dragon Ball villain, King Piccolo has the usual outrageous set of powers such as energy beams, super-everything, flight, and many more. High School DxD makes out Satan as some kind of title that demonic noble families can inherit. As expected, only the strongest and most clever among them can assume the role of Satan. In the anime's timeline, that would be Sirzechs Lucifer. As a charming humanoid demon, Sirzechs Lucifer's powers are the most destructive in the anime which is why he's the best running candidate for Satan. He can shoot special energy projectiles that will obliterate anything they touch.

He also has a doom aura that, if left unattended, can destroy everything. Thankfully, he's a pretty laid-back demon lord who mostly just flirts with his own sister. Void could easily win here if the contest was picking the scariest anime demon lord, and he certainly lives up to his reputation and appearance. He's the oldest and most knowledgeable among the God Hand in Berserk, making him the unofficial leader. Void's powers are all about bending reality and shaping causality to his will. As a demon of the God Hand, he can control space and create portals in the blink of an eye - and even weaponize them. Void's more special ability, however, is being able to see the flow of time or events. As a result, he's able to "nudge" any possibility into a reality as an outcome. Apart from that, he can also mark creatures with a curse called the Brand of Sacrifice. Any victim of this curse will be relentlessly hunted and assaulted by other demons. Anos Voldigoad is no Satan but he might as well be in The Misfit of Demon King Academy. He's the main character of the anime and is actually a reincarnation of the Demon King of Tyranny who divided the world into four with his incredible strength and cruelty before he reincarnated. Despite being reborn as a pretty boy, he hasn't lost his edge. He's still super-powerful in all physical aspects, but he shines the most when it comes to practicing magical powers of destruction.

The closer anyone is to be getting destroyed (including himself) the more powerful Anos becomes, which makes him nigh-impossible to defeat. As expected from the name alone, Lucifero from Black Clover is the top dog when it comes to devils and demonic entities in the series. Lucifero is one of the three rulers of the underworld in Black Clover and is also the highest-ranking devil who resides in the deepest level of hell. As usual, he's super-powerful in just about all physical aspects and, as a demon, he can possess anyone. He does have a special ability that allows him to manipulate gravity, as well as magical powers that are so tremendous in scale, they will destroy the living world when released. Now here's a demon lord who actually won and managed to destroy the living world. Satan from Devilman Crybaby was able to do it through a premeditated scheme that culminated in unleashing a demon army to wipe out the humans so that their kind could populate Earth. Not only is Satan physically capable of anything, but they could also unleash calamities on Earth turning the seas red and drowning out humanity in blood and the maws and jaws of countless demons. In the end, even the god and the angels had to intervene by nuking the whole planet clean in a planetary genocide that's nothing short of biblical in scale.
