Badass/OP Main Characters

Updated 4/7: Includes mangas/webtoons that have MCs that are either super talented in specific areas, badass as in super saiyan strong or becomes hella beast as the story goes on. I tried to sort it so webtoons are the first half and mangas the second half.
1 Eleceed

Do you see that fat tabby cat in the cover photo?

Well, he's like a beast, when human of course, but we wouldn't have this webtoon if he didn't turn into this chubby cat... but ANYWAYS because of some circumstances, he ends up stuck in this cat's body and meets our super sweet and wholesome MC.

  • NOTE: This MC while he starts off not as the strongest, it's mainly because of his past and trauma surrounding his own powers. HOWEVER, he is by no means weak. He has an incredibly strong heart and is both kind-hearted and compassionate. Somehow, he is able to stand up for himself and for those he cares about WITHOUT BEING ANNOYING, and that is why I honestly fell in love with this MC.

2 Only I Level Up: Solo Leveling

Only I Level Up: Solo Leveling

Weakest MC becomes most OP MC (The art is so good I quake)

  • NOTE: NGL this man as he gets stronger, he also gets hotter, like no joke. 
  • ONE OF MY TOP FAVORITES THOUGH SO PLIS READ

3 Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Main character grows through his experiences and really is able to improve so much both in character and skills. I'm so proud of him. Additionally, his sister is the cutest and most badass shit I've ever witnessed.

4 Legend of the Northern Blade

Legend of the Northern Blade

You should pull out the root and get rid of all traces of it before it grows and devours everything around it. 

If your enemy had a baby son who was harmless, should you kill it to make sure the child will never grow up to take revenge? or have pity on him/her and let them go?

As the sole survivor of the once well-renowned Northern sect, the main character has basically been kept under house arrest and strict surveillance since he was a child. However, when an attack strikes, the clock starts turning again as we realize that the child we once thought was helpless, may not really be so anymore...

8 I am the Sorcerer King

I am the Sorcerer King

This is like Solo Leveling OP level but kinda different at the same time. If you haven't read that btw, go do it now.

Anyways, not only is this boy reincarnated, he's also the most fking OP MC's ever. Trust me and get through the first few chapters.

9 Yeon Lok Heun

Yeon Lok Heun

#girlcrush Super brave and strong girl dressed/transformed as male.

Due to circumstances, Yeon has always dressed as a boy learning martial and spiritual arts. Due to some circumstances, she ends up meeting the Emperor and he promises to save her father's life in exchange for her lifelong services. But how long can she continue this life without the others finding out that she is actually a woman?

  • NOTE: DON'T WORRY. Our girl is literally in a male body, as in, in order to hide her identity, she learned how to shapeshift her face and body to be a male's body, so it's not surprising no one thinks of her as a girl. Cause while she still has some delicate features, in a male body, she is legit just a pretty boy. Think about it, if she transformed to be bulky, we'd probably be turned off anyways lol

10 Shana Ou Yoshitsune

Shana Ou Yoshitsune

Two people who were born and raised in completely different environments end up becoming one. This is such an underrated manga. The growth and development of the main character is just amazing. This is a story of a boy who was born with nothing but ends up as a legend. While he rarely resorts to violence as the first option, he won't hesitate to take up the sword to protect those around him. His underlying charisma, neverending curiosity for the unknown and his growth always makes me so proud :')

11 Medical Return

Medical Return

Though a surgeon who worked day and night for his patients in his past life, he died pretty worthlessly with no one left to mourn for him. Now, sent back to his teenage years with his past life's medical skills and knowledge, once again he embarks on his journey to go to med school, but this time to find a job in Dermatology? (basically new goal: money & protecting those he cares about > using his skills as a surgeon and working himself to death again)

  • NOTE: While I know he was a doctor in his first life, my brain could never retain all that knowledge if I was reborn, but well, this man be OP as f and highkey actually tries to dumb himself down sometimes to not stand out, but of course, still ends up standing out.

12 Second Life Ranker

Second Life Ranker

Reminds me of Solo Leveling. Main character inherits his brother's will and goes inside a game to get revenge upon all those who backstabbed his brother.

13 The Great Mage Returns After 4000 Years

The Great Mage Returns After 4000 Years

Reincarnated after being trapped for 4000 years in literally nothingness. While he was the #1 Magician 4000 years ago, he held nothing against the demi-gods. Now... watch as the MC gets back his OG skills and even transcend beyond.

15 Blue Lock

Blue Lock

More like the journey of watching this MC become his true OP self as a striker. Think of Hinata from Haikyuu and how his eyes turn when he's super serious. Yea, these two have the same eyes and they both don't realize they're beast.

EDIT 6/17: Caught up to ch.72 and I must say... I love the dynamic between the characters. I can't imagine some of these characters leaving the scene anymore because I love their dynamic so much. I wonder how this will all end up panning out. Will they end up forming a team?

10/10

Skill: Sensing goals (it'll make sense)

KEY TAGS: Shounen, Sports

16 Weak Hero

Weak Hero

This man will stab you in the eye with a pencil if he has to. Strategically smart and uses that to his advantage during fights.

9/10

KEY TAGS: Webtoon, Action, School Life

17 Study Group

Study Group

Gamin Yoon, the main character, lowkey is relatable in the fact that no matter how hard he studies, he doesn't do well in class, but on the other side, his physical fighting abilities are like top-tier. He also doesn't brag about it, but sorta just nonchalantly beats people up if they F with him.

23 White Blood

White Blood

Human on the outside but Vampire on the inside. All Park Hayan wants is to be normal and to be like everyone else, but... she can't.

  • NOTE: In her vampire state, her hotness like increases by like 10 levels probably cause her clothes become more fitted and she just looks more badass. 
  • She's super strong, but the real question is, can she fend off basically every single vampire existing who wants to kill her for her blood cause... she's special (just read more to find out)

46 The Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins

EDIT:: Finally finished the series... I'm pretty bummed and disappointed at how fast it started going downhill, especially when it was reaching the 250+ chapters... Dropped the rating down after finishing the last 50 chapters. It felt like they were just jumping from idea to idea and just kept throwing in unnecessary elements to the story. Overall, I think the author just ran out of ideas honestly but it was good while it lasted :')

In the seven deadly sin team... you got demons, giants, king fairies, undead, gigantic pigs... how much more OP can you get..
