Top 10 Demonic Anime Powers

Best not to mess with those who control the forces of hell. Welcome to WatchMojo and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Demonic Anime Powers.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the abilities used by anime characters that lean towards the demonic side. Doesn’t matter if it is used for good or for ill, just as long as it conjures visions of a hellscape straight from the mouth of your deepest nightmares, it counts. As such, get ready for a few devilish spoilers down the line.

#10: Seraph of the End

“Seraph of the End” (2015)

Even vampires need something to fear. While Yuu’s awesome sword skills have managed to land him quite the kill count when it comes to bloodsuckers, his true power lies within the infamous seraph gene. Even in its incomplete form, Yuu’s inner demon is strong enough to crush a city. It’s just a shame such power turns him into a mindless beast driven only by his desire to punish sinners. We’re guessing creeps like Ferid wouldn’t be so smug if they were trapped in a room with Yuu during this apocalyptic phase.

#9: Demon Magic

“The Devil is a Part-Timer” (2013)

Can’t expect the Lord of the Fries to not make the list. Just because he’s an assistant manager at a lousy-looking fast-food restaurant doesn’t make his status as the Demon King any less potent. While he’s vying for that good guy status these days, Sadao still knows how to bust out the telekinesis and mind control when it counts. Of course, when all else fails, he can always go for full on devil and unleash a superpowered punch that would send any angel flying back to the pearly gates with their wings between their legs.

#8: Commandment

“The Seven Deadly Sins” (2014-15; 2018)

And the list of things the Dragon Sin of Wrath can do just continues to grow. Not hard to see how the Captain of the Sins became so infamous, after all, as one of the children of the Demon King, Meliodas not only has enough strength, speed and endurance to wipe out most foes instantly, but like the rest of his race has access to darkness; a substance that that can drastically increase his power, to the point where it once consumed a whole kingdom. Oh, and he can’t die. Just a quick trip to purgatory and poof! Back in the fight. Best not get him angry.

#7: Full-Fledged Demon

“Inuyasha” (2000-04: 2009-10)

This half-dog death dealer may have wanted to rid himself of his hybrid nature and become a full-on demon on par with the likes of his brother, but after seeing him lose control to his demon side time and time again, we’re not so sure that’s a good idea. After all, whenever Inuyasha’s demonic half comes out to play, he becomes an uncontrollable beast. While this form has allowed him to claw away at many of Naraku’s minions, it also costs him his sanity. If not for his brothers intervention, we’re not sure what could have stopped him.

#6: Flames of Satan

“Blue Exorcist” (2011; 2017)

Nothing screams “my dad is totally the prince of darkness” more than coating yourself in blue hellfire along with a nice matching pair of horns. Kind of a handicap when you’re trying to become an Exorcist who can take revenge on the demons who murdered your foster father. While his heritage is often a source of conflict in his life, Rin has proven without a doubt that these indigo flames of his are just as handy for burning away the inhabitants of Gehenna just as much as regular humans.

#5: Black Asta

“Black Clover” (2017-)

How to make up for having no magic? Demonic power of course! After coming into contact with the unknown entity that lurks inside him, Asta finds himself imbued with demonic power of such calibur that he can pretty much cleave his way through any and all magic without issue. Not even magical junkies like Ladros are able to hold a candle to the hapless idiot of the Black Bulls when he’s rocking this form. Just goes to show class and status don’t amount to much when you’ve got a Black Meteorite coming at you full speed.

#4: Rashomon

“Bungo Stray Dogs” (2016)

Word to the wise, don’t mess with Akutagawa. Not only does he have an intense bloodlust, but his particular gift just so happens to take the form of a hellish beast he can call from his own body, and it is not friendly. While the other members of the Port Mafia might have some fearsome abilities of their own, nothing compares to watching this edgy assassin coat his body in the terrifyingly powerful “demonic armor”. And no, you can’t find one of those at Hot Topic. Sorry guys.

#3: Level 0

“Hellsing Ultimate” (2006-12)

And this is what happens when Alucard cuts loose. He literally unleashes a tidal wave made entirely of the souls he’s drained over the centuries as Count Dracula, creating an unstoppable army that only live to slaughter in the name of their master, and as a result creates a wasteland filled with the butchered bodies of psycho Catholics and resurrected Nazis. There’s not much else we can say except for the results speak for themselves. Just another reason to avoid London during peak tourist season.

#2: Devilman

“Devilman Crybaby” (2018)

It says a lot about a person when they’re surrounded by shapeshifting, hideous denizens from hell, and is still the deadliest thing in the room. After being manipulated into merging with the creature known as Amon, timid student Akira finds himself transformed in a hybrid of unparallel strength. While he’s just as emotional as ever, Akira’s new form allows him to make short work of any demon that comes his way, including Satan himself. Not everyone can claim to be able to punch the Morning Star so hard that it split the seas.

#1: Dragon of the Darkness Flame

“Yu Yu Hakusho” (1992-94)

Hiei might prefer to settle things with his signature sword, but that’s not the only weapon he has in his arsenal. For those that manage to push the three-eyed demon of Team Urameshi beyond his limits, he’s got a fiery trump card guaranteed to turn them to ashes. Taking the form of a pitch-black dragon, this creature will incinerate any foe that it manages to catch in its maw. Just ask those poor souls at the Dark Tournament. As if people needed another reason to be scared of this pint-sized punisher.
