anime with OP main character

This includes intelligence, power, and other talents. Some people that could've made but didn't because I don't like some of them. This is in order of how powerful they are, how much they displayed it, and how dramatically cool they can be.( sidenote: the order might be a little off. ok. maybe really off because i didn't want to think about this for hours and hours. Also, I didn't add any shows that I didn't fully watch and I don't do animes with more than 30 episodes. Sorry about that. Hence why alucard, grisaia, and etc is not present.)
1 The Irregular at Magic High School
The Irregular at Magic High School

He's the type to just vaporize a truck and walk away.

2 One-Punch Man
One-Punch Man

It's in the title. One punch and everything blows up. also, its pretty funny.

3 Overlord

This guy is just unbelivable. Watch it and you'll see what I mean.

4 One Outs
One Outs

i know there's a lot of things that chould discourage you, like it being a sports anime, the average artwork, etc. But this guy could wreck you brain until you had to be taken to a mental institution. He's amazing

5 Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

He's super smart and has the powers to go with it. And the ending WILL MAKE YOU CRY. It's really a great ending.

6 Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto
Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

It's a great comedy, so the mc can be crazy without any laws of physics holding him down, and he is normal without any powers, yet he can still do amazing things.

plus, the ending was emotional if you can figure it out.

7 Sword Art Online
Sword Art Online

The mc is strong and yeah.

8 World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman

He becomes stronger in like every 3 episodes.

OP in his own world, and probably able to stand on par with many others outside of his own world too. Comedy is great too

10 No Game No Life
No Game No Life

The two sibling are smart and they challange the gods. Funny, too.

he's really strong, especially towards the end.

13 Blade Dance of the Elementalers
Blade Dance of the Elementalers

The main guy was and becomes strong.

14 Magic Kaito
Magic Kaito

He does magic tricks and steals stuff. Like a side story of Detective conan but not as long and not as repetitive. Entertaining.

15 Nurarihyon no Mago
Nurarihyon no Mago

When he transforms, he pretty much undefeactable.

16 Kaze no Stigma
Kaze no Stigma

The mc is really strong with a backstory.

17 Code:Breaker

He burns people and is actually stronger than anyone else.

18 Needless

THe guy steals powers and becomes even stronger than he was. He's also a classical example of a badass. (He's a lolicon, though)

The Seven Deadly Sins

The 'wrath' is really strong, and so are the other seven deadly sins.

20 Log Horizon

21 Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?
Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?

most of them are overpowered, but the boy is like destroy the world op.

22 Death Note
Death Note

He's smart and kills people by writing their name on a notebook. I ranted a lot at the ending though.

The guy is a demon lord, so he gets his power back and his enemies just bets beten up like a rag doll.

Unlimited Fafnir

The MC has an overpowered power. and can do martial arts and all that

25 Noragami

He's...He's the god of death. It's also pretty funny.

26 K

There are like 7 overowered existince with great fight scenes. It's more mystery heavy in the first season.

27 Charlotte

The guy can do 'something' and becomes almost godlike in the end.  and it has a nice, emotional ending with great plotline. And the imouto here is the best in the business.

He like the hero of the previous world, so he's really strong.

A powerful psychic, and only restriction is his own timidness

38 Sky Wizards Academy

THe guy is really strong, but it's not that entertaining. At least not as much as Chrome shelled Regios, which is similar to this anime, but the mc isn't as op, just his past.

39 Campione!

He powers up using kisses, so it's slightly weird.

40 Gosick

The girl's really smart and it's a nice story

41 Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu
Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu

The guy is super powered, but shows it, like three times. Also, the ending isn't clear and there seems to be no second season...
