Welcome to our list of insanely powerful anime and manga characters with hax abilities.
Hax, short for “hacks,” refers to characters who possess abilities that bend or break the rules of the universe in their respective series.
These characters are often able to manipulate reality itself, making them some of the most formidable foes or allies in their worlds.
In this article, we will explore some of the most powerful anime and manga characters with hax abilities that make them stand out from the rest.
Note that this list is not ranked according to the strength of the character. I’ve listed them based on the character’s hax ability that I find interesting.

1/16: Featherine Augustus (Umineko no Naku Koro ni)
Featherine Augustus is an insanely powerful manga character with hax abilities that make her undefeatable. Or, in other words, her abilities make her win by default all the time.
She possesses an ability called “I win,” where she just has to declare that she has won. This would warp reality and make it so that Featherine would win even without having to actually fight.
No matter who her opponent is or what hax ability they have, they will lose by default.
Other than this, she is an omnipotent, multiversal being who is far beyond concepts and logic themselves.

2/16: Iihiko Shishime (Medaka Box)
Iihiko is an overpowered character from the Medaka Box manga series who has several hax abilities. Let me go over them one by one.
- Irreversible Destruction: Any damage Iihiko does to anybody does not heal or get reversed. Whatever he breaks stays broken. Whatever he cuts stays cut.
- Ignore Hax: Iihiko is basically resistant to any reality warping abilities and is not affected by any kind of powers, abilities, or skills. Simply put, any attacks that he does not recognize does not affect him.
- Attack Breaker: This is actually a combination of the above points. Except, any attack that hits him and doesn’t work gets “broken” and unrepairable. He can also reflect the damage that he would’ve taken to his opponent too.
3/16: Yukari Yakumo (Touhou Project)
Yuakri from the Touhou Project has the ability to manipulate the boundaries between reality and fiction. She is one of the most powerful manga characters with hax ability, who controls the fate of the world in her hands.
She can make her fictional ideas into reality and turn any reality into fiction. If she wishes, she can remove the boundary between the concepts of life and death itself.
What’s more, there is no way to counter or fight her boundary manipulation ability. Her powers are definite and cannot be undone.
In simple terms, she can create, destroy, or negate anything and everything!
4/16: Battler Ushiromiya (Umineko no Naku Koro ni)
Battler is yet another one of Umineko’s characters who has an insane hax ability that ignores anything he denies.
His ability, “Endless Nine,” allows him to be completely unaffected by anything he does not accept as reality. You can shoot him with all kinds of universal powers, but all he has to do is be in denial, and he won’t even be scratched.
That said, if he acknowledges something, then he will be affected by it. However, he is a master of mind games himself, so it is not going to be easy to trick him into believing that something would actually hurt him.
5/16: Misogi Kumagawa (Medaka Box)
Misogi is yet another one of Medaka Box manga’s character who has an insane hax ability makes reality into fiction, thus erase reality itself.
His ability “All Fiction” nullifies anything and everything that he thinks is fiction. No matter how powerful his opponent is, all he has to ignore their existence. They wouldn’t be able to lay a finger on him.
There is not much limitation to this ability. For example, when he dies, he can just think that death is fiction and he becomes an immortal.
However, he is not able to make something that he calls fiction into reality once again. Meaning, if he thinks the a person is a fiction and they cease to exist, he cannot bring them back to life.
6/16: Yogiri Takatou (Instant Death)
Yoigiri has an incredible hax ability that makes him one of the most insanely powerful manga characters of all time.
His ability “Instant Death” allows him to kill anything or anyone just by thinking of killing them.
In addition, it also activates automatically when someone has malicious intent targeted at him. So basically, if someone thinks, “I’m going to stab Yoigiri to death,” they will just die for thinking it.
Now, what actually makes his hax ability powerful is that he can even kill immortals and characters that are beyond the concept of death itself.
7/16: Wonder Of U (Jojo Part 8)
Wonder of U is one of the automatic stands from the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 8 manga series.
This stand can automatically sense any harmful intent or desire to pursue it or its human form and activate its ability called “Calamity.” This ability means doom to the person who is going against Wonder of U.
Calamity makes sure that the target’s environment kills them. Even if they manage to escape a calamity, the next ones will follow until they drop dead.
However, in order to activate this effect, the enemy’s intention must be crystal clear. It cannot be coincidental or a vague idea that someone is after him.
8/16: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap: Love Train (Jojo part 7)
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, also known as D4C, is one of the most powerful JoJo manga characters with insane hax abilities.
D4C’s primary ability is to hop dimensions. It is a very useful ability that can be used to reverse any damage the stand user might have taken. For example, when he is on the verge of death, he can just jump to another dimension where he is not hurt at all.
However, what makes D4C powerful is the Love Train evolution. The Love Train has the ability to redirect misfortune.
When an attack is targeted at the stand user, he can jump into a pocket dimension, making him invulnerable to the attack. Then, the misfortune redirection kicks in, spreading the misfortune he would’ve had to everyone on Earth.
9/16: Gold Experience Requiem (Jojo Part 5)
Gold Experience Requiem (GER) is one of the most popular stands from the JoJo Part 5 anime series. It is handsdown the most popular anime character with hax abilities.
GER has the ability “Return to Zero,” which basically reverts any attacks back to zero, nullifying them and making it so that the attack never becomes “real.” This is also capable of creating death loops for an opponent who dies at the hands of GER. They die, get back to zero, and then die over and over again.
This stand also has the ability to give life to inanimate objects.
10/16: Rimuru (That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime)
Rimuru from “That time I got reincarnated as a slime” is a well known character in the anime and light novel fandom for his hax abilities.
He has hundreds of magic skills and abilities. But among them all, his “unique skills” are the most fearsome ones. Here are two of his broken unique skills:
- Gluttony: One of the abilities that gave him an overwhelming advantage in any fight is “Gluttony.” It allows him to consume his opponents and gain their powers. It has also evolved into “Beelzebuth,” which is a much stronger version of Glutonny with extra hax.
- Raphael: Rahpael is basically the ultimate brain that coexists with Rimuru’s own consciousness. It provides him with thought acceleration and analytic appraisal and allows him to understand anything.

11/16: Hellmaster Fibrizo (Slayers)
Next on the list is Hellmaster Fibrizo form the anime Slayers. Befitting his title, he could really rule hell given her powers.
He has the power to manipulate souls and dominate death itself. He just needs to think of someone while crushing the marble, and they will die.
Alternatively, he can also create undead using his necromancy skills.
Fibrizo also has the ability to destroy only a person’s mind without harming the body, which is even more devastating than death.
12/16: Haruhi (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Haruhi Sumumiya looks like a normal high school girl at first sight. However, she has the ability to alter reality.
She can bring forth anything she wants and remove anything she does not want. Simply put, reality can be anything she pleases.
However, she does not even know that she possesses such tremendous powers. She activates her reality-bending powers unconsciously.
13/16: Murasaki Edoyama (Tokyo ESP)
Not many of you would have heard about this hidden gem of an anime called Tokyo ESP.
The anime centers around Espers, and Murasaki is a supporting character of the show. She has the ability to touch someone and gain their skills and abilities.
For example, if she touches “Naruto,” she gets all the skills, transformations, and powers of Naruto.
This is such a good hax ability and can be used against any anime or fictional character as long as she can touch them first.
Also, she doesn’t necessarily have to touch the person. In the anime, she touches Bruce Lee’s nunchuck to gain his skills. So as long as she finds an object most used by her target, she can gain their skills.
14/16: Accelerator (A Certain Scientific Accelerator)
Accelerator is one of the anime characters that changes the game with overwhelming defensive hax ability.
His ability allows him to change “vectors,” which is a science term for “direction of force.”
For example, let’s say Saitama punches Accelerator. Accelerator can make the force behind the punch to change directions. In simple terms, he can reflect any and all damage that he would have taken, no matter how powerful the attack is.
15/16: Virgo Shaka (Saint Seiya)
Virgo Shaka is one of the anime characters with insane hax abilities, who can destroy universes just by opening his eyes.
His power, “Agyō” unleashes a beam of light from his eyes that produces the same energy needed to create or destroy an entire universe.
Another one of his powers “Tenbu Hōrin” is his most powerful move that can take away the senses of a person and remove their ability to think. He can literally turn his opponents into living corpses.
16/16: Saitama (One Punch Man)
When it comes to hax abilities in anime, it is not always about magical or fantasy power.
Saitama is a good example, where his ability is overwhelming physical strength and durability that allow him to defeat anyone in the One Punch Man universe without breaking a sweat.
He started out as a human and became a superhuman through training. However, that is enough to make him the strongest being in the world. He can tank planet breaking attacks like nothing and move several times faster than light.
His physical capabilities are so broken to the point that they can only be explained as a hax ability.
That’s it for this post. These are all the 15+ anime and manga characters with insane hax abilities.
