One of the most epic stories you ever heard and some best action sequences you have ever seen! This statement perfectly describes The Seven Deadly Sins anime, released in October 2014. The story of Seven legendary warriors sets on a quest to reestablish their glory by helping Princess Elizabeth to defeat their common enemy. The series was named according to Roman Catholic theology. Each of the seven knights signifies the seven deadly curses like pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.
There are so many strong characters in this anime and on top of them the seven knights. Each of them has its unique sets of abilities and battle IQ. All of them have their highs and lows against different enemies on different days. That’s why there are always conflicts that who is stronger than whom. To clarify this, Today made a thorough list of seven deadly sins ranked according to their power levels and fighting abilities. Let’s find out who is the strongest!
7. Gowther (1,700)
The weakest of all the deadly sins is still quite powerful. Gowther’s embodiment of Goat’s Sin of Lust is quite tricky. He has the magical ability of mind manipulation but has a fragile body structure. He is the analytical type of guy, calculating every outcome before moving any muscle. Not that it’s his fault, he was made like this by a great wizard.
His Sacred Treasure is the Twin energy, Bow named Herritt. His ability allows him to infiltrate others’ minds (many at a time) and make them daydream about anything he wants. But the spell can be easily broken if they found anything disturbing, still, it’s quite effective. Growther got full marks for his battle IQ and analytical abilities but didn’t cut in magical powers and physical resistance. In some scenarios, he is the most powerful but in others, not that much.

6. Diana (2,800)
Daughter of giants has brutal physical strength compared to other sins. She also has many magical powers, one of which is controlling the earth. But despite these abilities, she is on the second last on our list because of her lack of fighting skills and battle IQ. Diana punches sure pack a lot of power, but what it’s worth if it doesn’t connect. Her Sacred Treasure is the War Hammer also known as Gideon. Her abilities were also acknowledged by her clan elders and she was made the successor of the Giants clan.
Serpent’s Sin of Envy Diane is one of the characters anyone wants to avoid a one o one confrontation. Her big size is a plus point for her. She can travel miles very fast and destroy cities in an instant. Of course, it doesn’t put her on the top but saves her from falling to rock bottom.
5. Merlin (3,200) – Mage of The Seven Deadly Sins
Her powers don’t justify her physical appearance. She is the perfect example of the quote – appearance can be deceptive. The Boar’s Sin of Gluttony Merlin is also known as the greatest mage in Britannia. She is the one in the seven sins having abilities like teleportation, conjuration, mind, and matter manipulation. Her Sacred Treasure is the Morning Star Aldan, A floating orb from which she can summon her true strengths and her power named infinity.
But what gave away her was her lack of versatility. In the case of physical fights, she doesn’t stand a chase. Physically she is barely stronger than the King. Of course, her character and appearance attract more fans, but popularity and power are two different things.
4. King (5,400)
Harlequin, the king of the Fairy Realm, is also known as the King. He represents the Grizzly Sin of Sloth in the seven deadly sins. His sin was that he abandoned his duties to protect the sacred tree and leave her beloved sister and tribe to venture human world. After some time, when he left, his whole fairy tribe was killed by demons and humans. He carries their death burden on her shoulders until the very end.
His sacred treasure and prominent weapon are the Spirit Spear Chastiefol. Made from the wood of the sacred tree, it can move at the king’s will. What takes him apart is the versatile uses of his weapon. He can fly and target his enemy from far away. But his weak body and zero fighting skills put him down on the 4th position on our list.
3. Ban (6,700) – Immortal One of The Seven Deadly Sins
We are in the Endgame Now! Now no pulling punches, real guns are out.
Ben is the embodiment of Greed from the seven deadly sins. His family consists of Elaine his wife and a son named Lancelot. He was once immortal but had to give it away to save Elaine’s life. He was the only survivor of the Fairy King Forest incident but was accused to conduct the massacre for the lust of eternal life.
One of his abilities, Snatch, allows him to steal others’ abilities and powers. Fox’s Sin of Greed having an ability named snatch is just clever writing! His Sacred Treasure is the Holy Rod Courechouse, a nunchuck kind of device but with four rods. Every one of the seven deadly sins has lots and lots of magical power that can be summoned with their magical tools. Some of them are quite weak without them and had very poor physical composure.
Ban, on the other hand, has both physical and magical power in abundance. His fighting skills and use of magical powers are well balanced, plus his immortality. That brings him to the top 3 of our list.

2. Escanor (8,900)
Escanor and Meliodas are often debated on who is stronger? I personally think that Escanor is more powerful than Meliodas physically and also superior in skills. But we are not here only to assess their physical capabilities. Escanor Lion’s Sin of Pride is the former second prince of the Kingdom of Castellio. His sacrad treasure is an ax named Rhitta.
The Strongest Holy Knight of the Kingdom of Liones is also one of the strongest characters in the entire series. He is a brutal monster, so many times claimed by others to be the strongest. He has both overwhelming physical and magical powers. On top of that, his ability amplifies his strength with the sun’s uprise, but this also leaves him vulnerable at night. He is the mightiest but even that’s not enough to defeat Meliodas.
1. Meliodas (10,000) – The Strongest of The Seven Deadly Sins
An honest observation, Meliodas is the most stubborn pervert I have ever seen in any anime. With that said, he is also the strongest character of the seven deadly sins. He is the caption of the seven deadly sins, head of the ten commitments, and the owner of the tavern Boar Hat. He is the pinnacle of all the power and skills and the most modest character in the anime.
Let’s start from the beginning. Meliodas the Dragon’s Sin of Wrath and the protagonist of the seven deadly sins. It’s the irony that the sin of wrath is the calmest character. His sin was his inability to save his lover Elisabeth’s life. Meliodas Sacred Treasure is the Demon Sword Lostvayne with which he is an unstoppable force. His abilities named full counter redirect all no physical attacks on his opponent with double power!
At the beginning of the story, he was so powerful that without his sacred treasure and all his powers locked by Merlin he was still able to take down holy nights. It was also said that no one saw him using a complete sword because not a single opponent survived to tell the tails about it!
There you have it, The Seven Deadly Sins, Power Levels ranked! Many of these characters show fluctuations in their fighting power at many stages of the anime but we have ranked them according to their final forms. At the beginning of the anime, Escanor was shown as the strongest character, but things change with time. Whoever comes on top but all the seven deadly sins are equally important and dependent on each other. Some of them are mad, some are reckless, some are calm-minded and some are weak but when all comes together there is no other greater force than them.
