Anime Where The MC Is OP From The Start: Main Characters Who Are Overpowered Beyond Reasons

In this article, we will be taking a look at the Top 10 anime where the MC is OP from the start.

Anime is widely known for having overpowered main characters. It is fun to watch insanely OP MC devastate their opponents.

In most anime series, the MC gains power little by little and gets OP near the end of the series. However, there are a few anime series where it is the complete opposite. In these shows, the MC will be OP right from the beginning.

Here are ten such anime series where the main character is overpowered from the start!



We kick off this list with CUBE X CURSED X CURIOUS.

A high school student, Yachi receives a mysterious super heavy black cube from his overseas archaeologist’s father.

That night yachi wakes up to a suspicious noise in the kitchen.

And discovers a stark naked young girl with blue hair stealing rice crackers.

Damn! Imagine finding a half naked loli in your house in the middle of the night.

The young girl presents herself as Fear.

And Yachi reaches the conclusion that she is the cube that his dad had sent.

Fear clarifies that she is a cursed tool, objects which were utilized in the past by people to round out their evil desires.

Over time, they started to have human attributes at an incredible price which incorporate acquiring human feelings and harming others without control.

Yachi guarantees her that he is immune to any curse that she may give him.

What’s more, he promises to assist by disposing of her curse aligned with nearby neighbor Konoha Muramasa and the strict class representative Kirika Ueno.

They attempt to help her eliminate her curse.

However, simultaneously, engage in numerous risky associations and other cursed tool incidents.

Not every odd box or huge or little cube is going to change into a loli, so don’t attempt it!

 9. 11Eyes


We can’t have a list of anime with OP MC from the start without 11Eyes.

The story begins like this. At the point when the sky becomes red, the moon turns black.

Everybody around Kakeru and his closest friend Yuka vanishes and beasts begin wandering the roads.

They attempt to decipher why they have been sent to an abnormal world, which is apparently unfilled beside themselves.

Be that as it may, when the red night finishes, Kakeru and Yuka believe it was all a dream.

Until it happens once more.

What’s more, they are left in a risky circumstance.

They meet four others in a similar quandary, Kusakabe Misuzu, a specialist swordsman.

And Tachibana Kukuri, a weird quiet young girl who looks uncannily like Kakeru’s perished sister Hirohara Yukiko.

A vivacious young girl whose character returns to that of a chilly executioner when her glasses are taken off and Tajima Takahisa, a youthful pyrokinetic.

As the six unite as one to endure and find what this puzzling world is, things get ugly as six shadows show up before them.

8. Cautious Hero

Cautious Hero - Overpowered mc anime

You know people say you can never be too careful because it’s better to prepare for every situation you may face, even if it seems like an unnecessary waste of time.

Anyway these words describe our, little too perfect, main character, Seiya Ryuguin after being summoned by the goddess Ristarte (aka aqua 2.0)

To save the world of Gaeabrande from the demon lord destruction, the hero prepares himself for his noble journey.

While this might be normal, he spends a very long time training himself despite having overpowered stats.

He bullies, I mean, uh, fights weak enemies using his strong skills and buys excessive amounts of supplies and potions all to stay safe. Even though the mc is OP from the start, he goes out of the way to make sure he only fights a battle he can 100% win.

While his attitude may be a bit annoying, it might just be the saving grace of Gaeabrande.

Especially considering that it is a world where the forces of evil dominate each and every expectation.

A great anime to be added in your anime list where mc is OP from the start!

7. To Be Heroine

To Be Heroine - overpowered female MC

Number seven on our list of anime with OP MC from the start is ‘To Be Heroine’.

And she’s lost the ability to keep herself mentally balanced.

At the bottom of her heart, her child-self is still there and still strong.

One day, she wanders into another dimension, a world where the light has been lost and darkness rules.

The people there exist as babies, wearing only their underpants.

The clothes they wear can be summoned as powerful fighters called spiklo or spirit cloth.

In this world, a battle was being fought between light and darkness.

However, this battle between light and darkness in another dimension was actually the battle between hope and despair in Moa’s heart.

I know I know, it doesn’t make sense but at this point, even I don’t know what’s going on.

So don’t ask me okay.
