The Seven Deadly Sins are some of the strongest characters within the anime. See which character stands where between these fighters.
The Seven Deadly Sins comprises seven brutal criminals in the land of Britannia. They were the strongest and cruelest order of the Holy Knights. They were framed for plotting a coup of the Liones Kingdom and had been disbanded indefinitely. They are the main protagonists of this series.
This list looks at the strength of each of the Seven Deadly Sins at their max power level. Not all the power levels have been revealed in the show and will contain spoilers from the manga. To determine who is strongest, let’s look at the combat class. This is a combination of a characters magic, strength, and spirit power levels. This can be done thanks to Balor’s Magical Eye; a magic sensor Merlin gives to Hawk. For example, Hawk has a combat class of 30. Zero in magic, 25 in strength, and five in spirit.
So here is the list of The strongest Sins with their power levels :
7. Ban(Fox’s Sin of Greed) – 3,220
Ban initially lagged behind his fellow Deadly Sin members in terms of power. Although he had the best ability of immortality, he was weak physically. However, after spending time in the Purgatory his endurance and durability greatly increased. While tolerating the harsh conditions of Purgatory he improved his physique. Even after losing his immortality Ban could withstand similar conditions like he saw when he came out of the Demon King’s energy storm unharmed. His strength and speed also rose to a great extent while fighting the Demon King in Purgatory. Ban’s best ability is Snatch which allows him to steal physical objects from his enemies.
Ban has 1,380 in magic, 930 in strength and 910 in spirit. While he has the lowest combat class of the Seven Deadly Sins, he is immortal after drinking from the fountain of youth given to him by Elaine, who sacrificed herself in the process. He takes the 7th place in my ranking.
6. Merlin(Boar’s Sin of Gluttony) – 4,710
Merlin is the greatest mage in the land of Brittania. Although her power level is less than that of Gowther, it doesn’t reflect what she is capable of. She created the bomb inside Gowther and she could create more like it and use them as she wanted to. She also could teleport and we can speculate that she could ignite the bomb and teleport far away without taking any damage. In the initial part of the story, we saw how she easily defeated some of the best Holy Knights in Liones. She displays her power once again in the battle against Chandler and Cusack.
The sin of gluttony comes in at 4,710 with 3,540 in magic, 70 in strength, and 1,100 in spirit. However, this is the last time there has been a reading on her combat class. In the Seven Deadly Sins manga, Merlin is seen defeating opponents with combat classes of over 160,000. It’s fair to say that her combat class has improved along with the other members of the Seven Deadly Sins. Merlin’s main ability is Infinity. It allows her to choose when a spell stops. If Merlin chooses to, the spell can last for infinity. When it comes to magic, no one, not even meliodas himself comes close to defeating her but she retains the 6th spot on this list seeing how physically weak she is.
5. Gowther(Goat’s Sin of Lust) – 35,400
Gowther is a doll created by a great wizard. As a result, Gowther doesn’t age and can practically live on forever. He doesn’t feel physical pain and he can be fixed even after some devastating attacks. Thus, he is super durable. He also possesses a great amount of magic power. While fighting Dawn Roar in Ordan, he caught Weinheidt’s charged arrow with his bare hands and sliced through the Armor Giant easily.
He has 1,300 in magic, 500 in strength, and 1,300 in spirit. Although having amnesia, Gowther was originally part of the Demon Clan as one of the original 10 commandments. After regaining his memories Gowther’s combat class rose to 35,400. Gowther’s main ability is Invasion. In addition to being able to read the minds of his opponents, he can engulf them in their own mind. He takes the 5th position in this list.
4. King(Grizzly’s Sin of Sloth) – 41,600
King is the protector of the Fairy King’s Forest and the Fairy Realm.He has 3,370 in magic, zero in strength, and 820 spirit. King’s main ability is Disaster which allows him to amplify the severity of injuries and attacks, let him control nature, and rule as Fairy King.
After undergoing a trial, King’s wings grew, increasing his combat class to 41,600, having 38,800 in magic, zero in strength, and 2,800 in spirit. He became the most powerful Fairy King in all of history. He has several special abilities including the ability to fly, change his appearance, and great speed. Despite having great power he is physically weak. He compensates for it with his Sacred Treasure and his immense level of magic power. His power increased greatly when his wings finally grew. Then after, he was able to access the true power of the Sacred Tree and his Sacred Treasure. He deserves the 4th spot on this list.
3. Diane(Serpent’s Sin of Envy) – 50,000
Diane is the strongest member of the Giant Clan and much larger than her fellow Deadly Sins members. We get to see Diane’s incredible strength when she punched the ground and used it to stop a horde of bugs from destroying a town. She has great durability as we saw how she was able to resist Gilthunder’s lightning and break free from it. She also has incredible speed and combined with her physical strength was able to beat more than ten men with ease in the fighting festival’s preliminaries. She even succeeded in using her powers to separate Demon King Zeldris from the lake which was supplying him with important magical powers.
Since Diane is part of the Giant Clan, she can manipulate the earth. Her other ability is Drole’s Dance. By performing the dance, she can increase her power level, and ultimately increase her combat class. When she is human size, performing Drole’s Dance increases her combat class from 2,330 to 15,100. When Diane is in giant size, she can raise her combat class over 50,000 but is limited to 50,000 by the Demon Cut Off. This puts her on the 3rd spot of this ranking.
2. Meliodas(Dragon’s Sin of Wrath) – 142,000
The Dragon’s sin of wrath, Meliodas is one of the main protagonists of the series. Meliodas can be argued to be the strongest character in the series based on the number of commandments he absorbs.
Meliodas is the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins. He is the older brother of Zeldris and the eldest son of the Demon King. Meliodas can use and morph the power of darkness into various shapes for different purposes. He is very skillful with his sword and has incredible magical abilities. He is also virtually immune to magic abilities with his special ability, Full Counter. Meliodas became the Demon King after absorbing all of the Commandments.
At the start of the series, Meliodas has a combat class of 3,370. 400 in magic, 960 in strength, and 2,010 in spirit. This is because most of his power has been sealed by Merlin. Meliodas was revealed as a demon and a member of the demon clan. With his demon mark, his combat class is raised to 4,400. After half of his demon power is released, known as Berserk, Meliodas’s combat class is raised to 10,300. After receiving his power back, his combat class raises to 60,000. When entering assault mode, his combat class is raised to 142,000. Meliodas in his true magic form was able to reach a power level of over a million. I don’t expect anyone to disagree with Meliodas taking the 2nd spot because we know how much of a beast Escanor really is against Meliodas.
1. Escanor(Lion’s Sin of Pride) – NO ONE KNOWS!!!
Escanor was known throughout the Kingdom of Liones as “The Strongest Holy Knight”. His Sacred Treasure, Rhitta, and his Inherent Power, Sunshine made him gain immense power during the day. Escanor was able to defeat Meliodas in his assault mode, using “The One”. However, before reaching “The One’, Escanor could barely match up against Meliodas. At night Escanor becomes powerless and is unable to use his magic.
He heavily relies on his Sunshine during battles. Escanor didn’t make his anime debut until the final episode of the OVA special Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War. Escanor’s main ability is Sunshine which fluctuates his power level based on the sun. The sun is able to raise Escanor’s combat class to over 50,000 around noon. When the sun is at its highest point Escanor enters The One Mode. In this mode he is essentially invincible, but only for one minute landing him the top spot on this list. Who knows, maybe he will be able to take a punch from Saitama(One Punch Man) in this form.
So let me know what you think about this Ranking in the comment section, i hope you are satisfied with it.
