12. Light Yagami ( Death Note )

Light Yagami is the major protagonist and the antagonist of the famous series Death Note. He may not be the guy who can challenge Goku in a one-on-one battle, but he has other ways to send Goku to another world. Light Yagami possesses a magical note called Death Note which allows him to kill anyone just by writing a name on it. Light can easily kill Goku, given that he knows his name. This is the reason we put Light into this list.

11. Beerus ( Dragon Ball Super )

Beerus is one of the most popular characters from the series Dragon Ball Super. He holds the rank of God of Destruction of Universe 7 and is considered one of the strongest beings in the Universe. Even after unlocking so many transformations, including Ultra Instinct, Goku is not on the level to defeat Beerus right now. In fact, he needs to travel a long way to surpass Beerus. Beerus’s strength is far greater than Goku’s, and he can easily beat Goku in his most powerful state.

10. Zeno Sama (Dragon Ball Super)

Zeno Sama is the strongest being in all of the Universe and the most powerful character in the dragon ball franchise. No one, including God of Destructions or Angel, could par with Zeno Sama. They are referred to as Omni King, i.e. King of All. If Goku ever pissed Zeno Sama, no one can save him, and there are no chances that Goku could ever defeat him. But the fight between Zeno Sama and Goku is nearly impossible as both are really good friends and share a great bond.

9. Meliodas (Seven Deadly Sins)

No matter what you think of regarding the Seven Deadly Sins storyline, one thing you definitely agree with is that the anime has certainly cool characters, and Meliodas is one of them. His entrance into the anime is enough to give goosebumps to any anime fan. His knights and leadership are worth praising, and his powers are enough to scare even the top warriors.

8. Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto Shippuden)

Sasuke is the second major protagonist of the series, Naruto Shippuden, and probably one of the strongest shinobi of the series. Sasuke’s powers are hard to dodge. He can control lightning and is also able to release a huge amount of electricity with his body. Sasuke also possesses Rinnegan and Sharingan, which gives him an edge on the battlefield and also enables him to read opponents’ moves. There are high chances that Sasuke will give a good fight to Goku in a duel.

7. Broly (Dragon Ball Super)

Broly is the major antagonist of the film Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Being the legendary super Saiyan, Broly possesses incredible strength even greater than Goku and Vegeta. Even though Broly is not bad by heart, still he can be easily manipulated, and if done so, It might be very difficult to defeat him even by Goku alone. As we saw in the movie, Goku and Vegeta both were unable to defeat him, so they used the fusion technique to counter him. We can certainly say that Broly can easily give a great challenge to Goku.



6. Baraggan Louisenbairn (Bleach)

No matter how strong someone is, if it is against time, defeat is inevitable. The same goes for Goku against Baragann Lousenbairn of Bleach. Goku may be the strongest being, but if he fights against someone who can manipulate time, then Goku might be at a disadvantage. Baragann is also intelligent, and he has great experience in battles. This is the reason he can be a tough match for Goku.

Julius holds the position of Wizard King in Black Clover. Holding the highest rank among wizards shows capabilities of Julius. Julius is also the one who possesses the most powerful magic, i.e. time magic. Again, It might be very hard for Goku to fight Julius as his movements are quite fast. Also, Julius is a master at stopping time and attacking surprisingly. Julius’s attacks are hard to resist and can give a fatal wound if there’s a clean hit.

Saitama is certainly one of the strongest characters in the whole anime universe, as his single punch is enough to send enemies to another world.
