Anime has a long history of featuring powers that are not only unique, but also bizarre. Whether it’s the ability to create and control fire or turn into a cat, anime is full of strange abilities. We’ve compiled a list of 15 of the strangest powers from anime so you can see how they stack up against one another!
The how many galaxies are there in the milky way is a question that many people have asked. The answer would be, there are an estimated 100 billion galaxies in the Milky Way.
One of the most enjoyable aspects about anime is the wide range of abilities on show.
There seems to be no limit to the unusual and really rare talents that characters may have, whether they are rooted in magic, old arts, or acquired by sheer will and training.
The places we can travel in anime (and the things we can experience, including abilities) may be incredible at times.
Sometimes it’s for all the wrong reasons.
So here’s our list of anime’s strangest abilities, superpowers, and oddities.
15. Ai Mori – Converting an Opponent into a Glasses Fan
The Law of Ueki in Anime (Ueki no Housoku)
Not only is Ai Mori’s power strange in and of itself in this anime, but it also needs an equally strange and artificial manner of activation.
As you can see, Ai is unable to use the power on her own.
To make it work, her opponent must strike a very particular, adorable posture.
And what happens if it does work? It turns that opponent into a spectacles wearer.
Yes, you have a secretary fetish as a result of this power. But only if you inadvertently place yourself in the proper position to activate it.
I believe Ai Mori would have been better off without abilities at the start of the show.
Tohru’s Cleaning Spit (No. 14)
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is an anime series created by Miss Kobayashi (Koboyashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon)
The fact that this dragon can change into a female isn’t the weirdest aspect of this item on the list.
No, it’s another of Tohru Kobayashi’s abilities that has brought her here:
Her saliva has the ability to erase stains.
While having this talent is very helpful as a maid, the picture of her walking about and pouring spit over everything she wants to clean would make you give a second take.
It isn’t dumb if it is stupid but it works – yet this is an ability that is high on the list of “super odd abilities” for a reason.
13. Tanjiro Kamado’s Smell Sense
Demon Slayer is a Japanese anime series (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
Another skill that seems to be merely helpful at first look.
Tanjiro’s amazing sense of smell is one of his numerous abilities.
He has the ability to detect demons from a great distance and can follow someone by scent. His sense of smell is so acute that it may create a mental picture of the odor in the air.
He can detect when someone is lying at one point.
So far, everything has been lovely and strange, right?
Imagine having a keen sense of smell and strolling through an open sewer. Or breaking a bad egg by mistake.
It’s a fantastic ability, but it doesn’t make it any less strange – or dangerous.
“Dark and Dark” by Jurai Ando
When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace in Anime (Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de)
Jurai Ando has been given the gift of… Quite probably the most worthless ability on this list, Jurai Ando has been gifted with the gift of…
A smoky, smoky flame.
That isn’t going to help.
The ability “Dark and Dark” literally means “dark and dark.” A fire that isn’t extremely hot and doesn’t accomplish anything.
There is, however, a catch.
Because the developed form of the power, “Dark and Dark of the End,” is the polar opposite – an ability so strong and persistent that if it were utilized, he would have to chop off his own hand to stop it.
Jurai just can’t seem to get a break when it comes to strange abilities.
The Carrot Transformation of Mna Tsukishiro
Getsumento Heiki Mina is an anime series created by Heiki Mina.
Because they don’t have any of their own, aliens have come to Earth to destroy our competitive sports.
Yes, this is a strange anime with an even stranger concept — as well as even stranger abilities and restrictions.
Mina must eat a carrot to change into her super-powered alter-ego as the commander of the Miina, or Rabbit Warrior.
It’s unclear why this is happening, but it gets weirder.
As if eating veggies wasn’t weird enough, it turns out Mina despises carrots and expresses her dislike for them every time she needs to change.
This is one of those oddballs all around.
Hanta Sero’s Tape Dispensing is number ten.
My Hero Academia is an anime series based on the manga My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia)
Hanta Sero is the first of two anime characters on this list, and she is one of my personal favorites from My Hero Academia’s vast roster of insanely powerful teenagers.
And, by whatever criteria you choose to use, this is probably the less strange of the two.
Cellophane, the Taping Hero, has two organs in his elbows that enable him to discharge a strong tape.
But not forever — once his skin dries up, there will be no more tape.
Sero has utilized his tape-dispensing abilities to create a variety of effects, including sticky tape traps, tying up opponents, and hanging like a gigantic vine from the tape.
It’s funny, shockingly helpful, and completely bizarre all at the same time.
Healing “Drool” by Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck
Bleach is a Japanese anime series.
This one has some truth to it — saliva does have some therapeutic properties at a very low level.
However, it is Nel’s power’s application – and the reality of it – that distinguishes it and earns it a spot on our list.
Nel can rub her uvula (the wobbling part at the back of your throat) to create saliva that cures whomever she drools on while she is in her kid form.
Or so she believes.
For the most part, Nel is actually puking on the individuals she wishes to cure – and has persuaded herself, in her childish innocence, that she is just spitting on them.
It’s a bit disgusting and a whole lot strange.
8. Tear Magic of Warcry
Fairy Tail is a Japanese animated television series.
Most anime strong men are the polar opposite of emotional wrecks. As a result, you won’t see them crying very frequently.
Warcry, on the other hand, is the polar opposite.
Warcry uses his oddly watery ability to power himself up by reducing himself to sobbing tears in seconds. However, no one knows how powerful it might be since he’s never had an opportunity to use any kind of assault.
So it remains to be seen if his claim that “Only through tears does one grow stronger” is true.
However, based on the responses of other characters to his sobbing, we can only infer that his blubbing has a lot of power.
Strange to say the least.
Wanze’s Ramen Nose is number seven.
One Piece is a popular anime series.
This is one of the more uncommon abilities that does not need the use of a Devil Fruit.
Chef Wanze terrified the Straw Hat Pirates with his ramen cooking abilities, which included the ability to blast noodles from his nose to construct a battle costume.
Wanze is a talented hand-to-hand fighter who uses his nose hairs to cut the noodles after swallowing the flour (yeah, really). He can not only blast them out with great velocity, but he can also analyze Sanji to the point that he can find out his weakness.
You may wonder what he does with this strength when he isn’t battling.
In his cooking, he does offer the noodles.
It’s no surprise that anybody who has seen him make them is too horrified to eat them.
Melona’s “Breast Utility” is number six.
Queen’s Blade is a Japanese anime series.
A shapeshifter, assassin, and warrior with extraordinary strength all wrapped into one.
Melona, on the other hand, has one additional special talent.
I’m not going to mince words on this one: it’s toxic breast milk.
Yes, the Protean Assassin can shoot milk that dissolves non-organic objects and can also be targeted to discharge high-velocity explosives at a fast rate.
It’s just as strange as it sounds – perhaps even stranger.
You’d assume that her regular abilities would be plenty to make her a dangerous opponent. But this one propels her into a world of strange abilities that few others can match.
Minoru Mineta’s Pop Off is number five.
My Hero Academia is an anime series based on the manga My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia)
The second of the two My Hero characters I promised you is here, and he’s a beast.
Mineta’s sticky balls (stop laughing in the back!) come in handy in a variety of situations, but he must be cautious not to bleed out while utilizing them. Ouch.
Minoru may utilize the sticky and rubbery balls to tie opponents, stick them in place, or use them as trampolines to access places he couldn’t reach otherwise.
Despite the fact that his perverse character has alienated many people, Minoru often employs his Quirk in team-related situations, such as immobilizing opponents so that others may beat them.
Mineta seems to always find a purpose for his balls, no matter how weird they are (I said stop laughing!).
4. Thermal Hand of Uiharu Kazari
A Certain Magical Index in Anime (Toaru Majutsu no Index)
While she isn’t as powerful as some of the other characters on this list, and her abilities may grow in the future, I can only tell it like it is.
Uiharu Kazari’s Thermal Hand will maintain the temperature of anything she touches, as long as it isn’t too hot or cold for her to touch.
Is it possible to keep food warm? Check.
How do you keep your beverages warm? Check.
Is it possible to keep ice cream frozen? Check.
She also has additional abilities. But this one seems too out of the ordinary not to mention.
There’s one more strange condition to this strange power:
It can’t be much larger than a basketball if she wants to maintain anything at the same temperature.
This may increase if her abilities develop from a Level 1 Esper. Nonetheless, it’s a little strange.
3. Motojiro Kajii’s Explosion Immunity in the Shape of a Lemon
Bungo Stray Dogs is a Japanese anime series.
Even the title of this post gives away the strangeness of this one: Motojiro Kajii is exclusively resistant to lemon-shaped explosions.
No more explosions, or he’ll perish. There are just lemon-shaped ones.
To get around this, he makes his own lemon-bombs in order to maximize his “Lemonade” talent.
Which, now that I think about it, must be a play on the phrase “when life throws you lemons.”
The character is named after a well-known Japanese novelist who specialized in lyrical short tales.
I’m going to take a chance and presume the author wasn’t immune to some types of explosions.
2. Hair on the Fist of the Nose
Bobobo-bo is a Japanese animated television series. Bo-bobo
Shinken, also known as “True Fist” in the “Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo” world, is a clear allusion to the Shinken from “Fist of the North Star.”
Bobobo-bo, on the other hand, is the primary character in this story. Bo-bobo does not fight with his fists.
He makes advantage of the hair on his nose.
Yes, Hanage Shinken (Fist of the Nose Hair, get it?) entails full control of the hair within his nose.
In the anime and manga, this enables him to tie up opponents, whip them, and seize objects, among many other things.
While having a pseudo-extra set of hands seems like a great idea, it doesn’t stop the Hanage Shinken from being completely bizarre.
1. Heaven’s Front Door
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a Japanese anime series (JoJo no Kimyo na Boken)
Rohan Kishibe has the ability to read you like a book. Literally.
There have been a lot of strange stances throughout the JoJo franchise’s history. However, this one is at the top of the list.
When he utilizes his talent, whomever it is aimed against starts to transform into a book, with pages unfurling from their skin in scenes that make me shudder.
The material written on the pages is 100% accurate, including his opponent’s fighting techniques, fears, and background.
He can not only see this data, but he can even rewrite portions to force opponents to do his bidding.
Imagine pealing that little piece of skin next to your fingernail and seeing all of your secrets scribbled on it. Just thinking about it makes me shiver.
