In order to assess how strong she is we have to compare her to other strong characters. For example, Luffy is considered one of the strongest characters in One Piece. He barely manages to land a hit on her. All Yonko are considered on par with or stronger than Admirals. She’s also on par with Kaido, another Yonko that is considered the “strongest creature alive.” Also:

  • She defeated the strongest giant with one hit as a 5-year-old
  • Even Pirate King Roger avoided her
  • Sanji and Luffy’s Kong Gun had no effect on her

I limited my list to one character per series.

Top Ten Anime from the 2000’s

My Top 5 Anime Electricity Users

Same rules as my list for top 5 water userstop 5 fire users and top 5 ice users which are:

  1. I’m only going to include anime characters from anime/manga I’ve read or watched. Mainly because I would be familiar with their powers.
  2. I’m only going to include ONE character per series. This is difficult to do, because there are many strong characters in any given series, but I want some variety.
  3. I think it will be difficult to determine how each character on the list would fare against each other, so I going to focus how strong they are within their series. However, I will be thinking how they compare relative to each other.

[Note] This list and any others will focus on characters that MOSTLY or significantly use the element. In this case electric. What that would result in is having a list of characters that will have more that just the element in their abilities and I will be factoring these other abilities in as well.

Killua’s top electric abilities:

  • Lightning Palm – The first ability Killua named, as well as the most basic one in his arsenal, consists in him electrocuting his opponent by touching them with both palms and pushing them back. The first and only time this Nen ability was used, it barely seared Sub’s sweater, but hurt and stunned him for a few seconds.
  • Thunderbolt – Killua leaps into the air above the opponent and projects a bolt of lightning from his fingers, paralyzing them for a few moments and causing them pain.
  • Whirlwind – first core function of Godspeed has Killua react automatically to external stimuli. Instead of the normal process of the stimulus being perceived by the nerves, which transmit a signal to the brain which in turn sends an instruction to the muscles, Killua programs his aura to send an electric signal to his muscles so as to instantly react to a threat, bypassing the comparatively slow nervous system. The aura can be preprogrammed to respond to different stimuli: physical contact, malevolent intent in enemy aura, or someone stepping in a predetermined perimeter, and the specific response is preprogrammed as well.
  • Speed of Lightning – second application of Godspeed allows Killua to retain conscious control of his movements. His running speed and jumping ability increase dramatically, hence why he uses it primarily to cover long distances in a very short amount of time.

1. Yoruichi Shihoin (Bleach)

Yoruichi is the former captain of the 2nd division of the Gotei 13 and a former commander of the Onmitsukido. She’s considered to be the most proficient Hoho (Fast Movement) master in all of Soul Society. She holds the title of “Flash Goddess,” because she had ” mastered this ability to the point where she can appear to be in several places at once and wipe out an entire Onmitsukido squadron in seconds.” She’s one of the best hand to hand masters in Soul Society. Yoruichi was able to fight three Captains and four lieutenant level opponents without any real damage. She’s a master assassin, strategist and swordsman. She has enhanced strength and endurance.

Yoruichi top electric abilities:

  • Shunko (Lightning) – An advanced technique which combines Hakuda with Kidō. This technique surrounds her back and arms with pressurized Kidō based on the element of lightning. Apart from enhancing her arms and legs for combat, the technique allows her to instantly neutralize an opponent’s movement. The Kidō itself can be controlled and fired at opponents from her body, which creates massive explosions. Yoruichi’s version of the technique was developed and studied by her a century ago; therefore, the technique is complete and the compressed Kidō is visible. While using this technique, her Reiatsu takes the form of white lightning. Her skill and control in its usage has progressed to the point of activation taking the form of a pair of lightning wings generated from her back.
  • Shunko: Raijin Senkei – lightning emitted from Yoruichi’s back creates a circle of electrical energy in the shape of Raijin’s drums behind her as Yoruichi unleashes a giant column of concentrated electrical energy to engulf her opponent.
  • Shunshin Chohengen – While Shunko: Raijin Senkei is already activated, Yoruichi can transform her mind and body even further.
  • Shunko: Raiju Senkei: Shunryu Kokubyo Senkei – Upon release a huge column of electrical energy is released. When the energy disappears Yoruichi has taken on the form of a hybrid of Shunkō and her feline form. Her feet become clawed cat paws, this form clads her arms and legs in electricity covering her forearms past the elbow and her legs up to her thighs, each ending with claws made of electrical energy. The energy forms her hair into the form of cat ears and she grows a tail. This form sheaths her in an aura of electrical energy. This form gives her the mentality of a cat and allows the cat nature of “fickleness” to manifest in her Reiatsu. While Yoruichi is naturally moody, she is even more so in this form; her Reiatsu is directly responsive to her changes in mood, and therefore becomes reliably unstable by changing 48 times per second.

The build a harem tag

First I must thank Merlin for tagging me. If you been reading this blog you’ll know that I have disdain for the harem genre. However, I don’t need to be that uptight about, this tag seems interesting. Reading other tags from Cactus Matt over at Anime Q & A (the creator of the tag), Karandi James at 100wordanime and Scott over at mechanicalanimereviews, I decided to take Karandi’s “amended” version, that kinda ignores the “character types.” I’m mostly doing so because I find it to limiting and I’m lazy. That said characters that I choose will inevitable fall into one of the categories anyway. First the rules:

The ‘Build A Harem’ Tag Rules:

1)Link back to the original post on Anime Q and A so they can check out everyone’s picks!

2)Use the ‘Build A Harem’ logo somewhere in the post.

3)Make sure to mention the person who nominated you too!

4)Pick 5 Anime Characters (any show & any gender) that would be in your ideal harem if you were the main character of a harem anime, explain a little bit as to why they are your picks (if you want).

5)Make sure each character you pick falls into some of the following harem character types: Childhood friend, tom boy/girl, genki girl/boy, loli/shota, trap, tsundere, yandere, kuudere, dandere, etc. (If there’s a character you’ve picked that doesn’t specifically fall into one of these types or falls into multiple types that’s fine too!)

6)Nominate 5 people to participate in this tag!


My Harem

Android 18

18 is a cool and confident woman, she has a sarcastic sense of humor that I love. She was asked once by the World Tournament announcer “if her real name is legitimately “No. 18”, to which she responds “My father was pretty dull.” 18 is very protective of her family and friends. She’s also incredibly powerful, capable of overpowering a typical Super Saiyan. Of course she possess infinite energy supply and she ages at a much slower rate. She also only requires water, which it think is cool.

Mako Mankanshoku

Mako has a lot energy, meaning she’s hyperactive. A lot of people might find her tiring but I like her. Weirdly, Mako is profoundly lazy. She’s fearless, willing to face major threats. When she was hard working when she was head of the “Fight Club.” Her biggest failing is her greed, due to being impoverish. That said she’s also hilarious.

Nico Robin

Unlike Mako, who’s loud and energetic, Nico is quite and reserve. She manages to remain calm even in the most dire situations. She like pointing out morbid facts, scaring her crew mates. Nico refuses to engage in anything that is embarrassing. Robin is often seen smiling, even in dangerous situation. Nico doesn’t play when it comes to battle, she’s brutal, willing to break the necks or spinal cords of her enemies.

Usagi Tsukino or Serena Tsukino (Sailor Moon)

I’ve always loved Serena. Sailor Moon was one of the first anime I watched as a child, so I have a soft spot for her. Serena is kinda a lazy, air head. She doesn’t study at school, or really apply herself. She’s also juvenile relative to her peers. Serena also has a tendency to whine and cry we she doesn’t get her way. I find her personality funny, she’s goofy and clumsy. Despite all this Serena will fight hard for those she loves.

Yoruichi Shihōin

Yoruichi is simply a bad ass. She’s highly intelligent, having imminence knowledge of the world she lives in. Even though she’s a noble, she’s not as obnoxious as other nobles. She doesn’t require being called with honorifics. Yoruichi has a well rounded personality, she’s mature and calm but can be relaxed and playful. She enjoys teasing others. She’s is very powerful fighter, she is the most proficient users of Hohō. and her Shunko, is the “highest form of Hakuda technique.” You can never go wrong with a strong woman right.
