Our Favourite Anime Powers

Here’s our favourite anime powers, disagree with our choices? Let us know your top favourites on Twitter and Facebook.

SUPER SAIYAN

Super Saiyan

Perhaps the greatest anime power of all. Who hasn’t watched an episode of Dragon Ball Z and thought to themselves, “I want to become a Super Saiyan”? For those who don’t know what a Super Saiyan is, it basically allows you to become The Rock, but with golden spiky hair. Having this power would mean you could stand at the top of the world, you could destroy anyone and anything in your path… however, there’s a slight issue, you have to be part of the Saiyan race.

 

GUM-GUM FRUIT

Gum-Gum Fruit

The fruit consumed by One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy, that turned him into, effectively, a rubber man, is an interesting choice. It would give one the edge in any fight and with a body of rubber, you’d be immune to blunt attacks and falls. As an added bonus, you’d be able to turn off the light after getting in to bed at night with ease. Consuming this devil fruit would be of benefit for anybody, and we would certainly not hesitate to eat the Gum-Gum Fruit if given the opportunity. Even its drawback of preventing you from being able to swim would not be an issue; we’re no pirates here, and will be keeping our feet planted firmly on solid ground.

 

DEATH NOTE

Death Note

We’re getting a little bit dark here… The Death Note is a weird one; you don’t have the ability, but you can certainly master the power it grants. Just by knowing their name and face, you’re able to end any life, in any place, at any time. With this book you could try and be “Kira” and cleanse the world of evil, or you could use it to control the entire world. One thing is for sure it proves that you don’t need to have some extravagant power that changes your appearance to be deadly!

 

SHARINGAN

Sharingan

The sharingan, famously used by the Uchiha clan, and Kakashi, the copy ninja, would make for another excellent ability to possess. We wouldn’t go as far as to say we want the Mangekyou Sharingan though; the costs far outweigh the benefits. The standard sharingan is more than enough for us. All three of its abilities could help in everyday life, being able to instantly memorise and replicate an opponent’s movements and/or attacks perfectly would be great in a fight, or just for copying off of someone in an exam.

 

GEASS

Geass

Although a Geass gives each individual a different power, we’ll be talking about Lelouch’s. After entering a contract with C.C. Lelouch was able to gain “the power of absolute obedience,” allowing him to command anyone he makes eye contact with. Imagine the amount of mayhem you could cause with such a power? Want straight A’s? Use it on your teacher. Want a never-ending supply of Manga UK releases? Use it on Jerome. The possibilities are endless. Of course, there are some limitations, like only being able to use it once on each person or not being able to turn the ability off. But, with some careful planning, that wouldn’t be much of an issue!
