In the world of Akame Ga Kill there are a lot of very strong fighters; the strongest ones belong to two groups: the Night Raid or the Jaegers.
Today I’m gonna presenting you the top 9 of Night Raid’s members, not basing only on what they did in the anime and in the manga, but also on what are their real powers coming from their Teigu and their physical and psychological abilities.
9 – NAJENDA
Najenda is a former general of the Empire and the actual Night Raid’s leader; because of the injuries that Edeath inflicted on her, she’s now at only the 40% of her original power. In fact, after having lost her right arm, Najenda started to use a prosthetic arm to fire enemies, and she also adopted Susanoo as her Teigu: it is a humanoid Teigu which can regenerate any kind of injury as long as its core isn’t destroyed, he’s immune to poisons, he fights using the “Wolf Fang Mace” and he’s able to use the “Magatama Manifestation”, thanks to which Susanoo can absorb his enemies’ energy in order to access a more powerful form.
I decided to put Susanoo as a Teigu and not as a proper Night Raid’s member because in my opinion, since he’s not human, he can’t be considered as a member.
8 – CHELSEA
Chelsea uses a powerful Teigu called “Gaea Foundation”, which allows her to change her appearance at will; thanks to this, she’s capable of excelling in deceiving her enemies and then killing them using some special needles.
7 – SHEELE
Sheele used to fight using her Teigu “Extase”, which is known for having the ability to cut everything; she’s very ruthless in battle, probably thanks to her natural talent for killing. She’s capable of keeping a clear mind and not having any remorse.
6 – LUBBOCK
Lubbock is a greater hand to hand fighter and tactician.
He possesses a Teigu called “Cross Tail”, that he can use both to attack and defend thanks to some wires that he can manipulate a twill.
5 – LEONE
Leone excels in gathering information and excercising calm judgment when is necessary. She’s also the one who confirms the validity of Night Raid’s targets.
Her Teigu is called “Lionel”, which enhanced her speed, reflexes, strength, and regeneration abilities; she’s also very skilled in hand to hand combat, in spying and in manipulation.
4 – MINE
Mine is the Night Raid’s self-proclaimed “genius sniper”; her Teigu is Pumpkin, a special rifle capable fo shooting in three modes: sniper, machine gun and long barrel. In addiction, it shots spirit energy bullets and that energy becomes powerful as the user’s feeling of danger becomes stronger.
3 – “100 MAN-SLAYER” BULAT
Bulat has an incredible physical strength and he’s very skilled in fighting with both the sword and the spear.
His Teigu is Incursio, the “demon armor” that changes depending on who wears it ; it can turn the user invisible and it gives a general improvement to user’s abilities.
2 – TATSUMI
Tatsumi started his trip just with the aim of earning some money for his poor village, but when he discovered the corruption that was spreading in the Empire, he ended up joining the Night Raid in order to fight against it.
He began fighting only with his sword, but then he inherited Bulat’s Teigu “Incursio” and, after having forced it to adapt to its new user, he became really powerful.
1 – AKAME “OF THE DEMON SWORD”
Akame had been originally sold by the Empire together with her sister Kurome to be trained as a killer, but she finally joined the Night Raid in order to defeat the corrupt monarchy when she was sent to assassinate Najenda.
She has the ability of slaying even the strongest enemy with the minimum effort; her Teigu is Murasame, a special katana coated in a terrible deadly poison for which there’s no antidote.
