Like in any combat-focused franchise, the question of which character is stronger is impossible to get away from. We love strong characters from our favorite series, but let’s face it, their quirky and fiercely strong weapons are likewise forces to be reckoned with when facing the stronger opponents.
Weapons play an integral role in terms of what makes a character strong. Since the inception of anime, writers have blessed us with a treasure trove of excellent weapons, which are as iconic as the character that wields them. And among the lists of impressive weapons, swords are one of the coolest and satisfying weapons.
Swords have stood out over the years and far above the other weapons and have significantly evolved throughout anime’s history with notable varieties of powers, functions, and styles. There are some truly powerful and unfathomable blades that anime offers. So here is the list of strongest swords in anime.
