Best Isekai with OP Main Characters

Involving overpowered skeleton knights, shield heroes, and those who are overly cautious, these anime play on the concept of OP protagonists.

The isekai anime genre is known for two details: reincarnations and overpowered protagonists. With some of these series, however, the concept of ridiculously powerful main characters is taken to a whole new level. Therefore, its premise focuses on the character essentially dancing in a world where nothing challenges them anymore.

Some of these shows have heroes who are instantly outclassed, while others develop into these power levels throughout their adventures. His abilities also have different effects on his supporting characters and their worlds. Here is a list of some of the best and “strongest” isekai anime and where they can be streamed.

Overlord is the last OP Isekai

Overlord's Momonga/Ainz Ooal Gown in the moonlight.

dark fantasy anime Sir he is considered one of the best isekai of all time, even among those who dislike the genre. Reborn as a tremendously overpowered skeleton knight, former player Momonga is feared throughout the country, and for good reason. With nothing to stop him, including morality, Momonga finds that he can do whatever he wants.

Sir succeeds by being almost a deconstruction of the isekai genre, showing how dark things would get if someone were reincarnated into a world where they were suddenly given tons of power. Like the king of isekai, it can be streamed on Tubi TV, Hulu, and via Funimation and Crunchyroll.

In another world with my smartphone has a cell phone OP

Touya looks at his phone.

In another world with my smartphone sounds like an absolute parody of isekai, which just goes to show how ridiculous the genre has become. The protagonist Touya is reincarnated from his world to a fantasy dimension, keeping only his smartphone. To power the device, he has been given a large amount of magical energy to power it, which easily makes him OP in his new world.

What works for the series is that it’s pretty laid back and laid back, logical given that its hero isn’t really in any danger of anything. This makes for a relaxing show that makes up for what it lacks in thrills in atmosphere. In another world with my smartphone is streaming via Funimation, Crunchyroll, and VRV.

Reincarnated as a slime has a strangely OP hero

Starting a whole new subgenre of isekai was That time I reincarnated as a slime, which is as crazy as it sounds. A normal salaryman is reincarnated into a lowly slime named Rimuru, but this blob has a dangerous secret. With a special technique at his disposal, he can copy the attacks and appearance of everything he consumes.

reincarnated as slime has been praised not only for making its bizarre premise work, but also for its world-building and characters. The former is specially given a level of detail not normally seen in isekai anime. The series can be found on Funimation and Crunchyroll.

The hero of the sage’s grandson is and is not OP

Wise man’s grandson has a hero who is more than adept at magic, although he certainly fails in other areas. Shin Wolford was once a Japanese salaryman before he was reborn in another world as a baby. He is adopted as the grandson of Merlin Wolford, who teaches him ridiculously powerful magical techniques, but not common sense.

The show succeeds by waxing and waning between the protagonist being pretty much overpowered or not, as well as adding the old “magic school” element that is popular in fantasy anime. Wise man’s grandson can be found on Funimation, Hulu, and Crunchyroll.
