What Is The Strongest Mecha Robot In Anime?

Giant robots saving the day in inventive sci-fi settings have been a staple of Japanese pop culture since its first appearance in anime and manga in the 1950s. To this day, the mecha genre is widely successful and adored by fans, as seen both in franchises that focus om giant robots, like Gundam and Zoids, and in mainstream anime with mecha elements, like Code Geass and Attack on Titan. The term “mecha” refers both to the genre and the robots themselves, which makes them the definitive component and focus of any mecha anime.



Over the genre’s long history, power-scaling never left the conversation surrounding mecha. After all, with such a wide variety of massive war robots existing across countless franchises, fans naturally wonder which of them is the strongest. From grounded planet-obliterating weapons of mass destruction to cosmic robotic beings with supernatural powers, comparing mechs based on strength is no easy task.

10 Best Mecha Anime Franchises

Gundam, Evangelion, and Macross are just a few of the beloved mecha anime franchises that offer epic mecha action and drama.

The strongest of the eight super robots built by the Hau Dragon organization, Zeorymer of The Heavens possesses scientific and magical powers. His main weapon is the telekinetic Dimensional Coupler Cannon – an energy blaster capable of obliterating almost any target. Zeorymer’s ultimate attack, Meiou, is an enormous golden energy explosion that can be seen all the way from space.

Even before upgrading to its Great Zeorymer form, which combined all the other Hau Dragon mechs’ powers, Zeorymer was an immensely powerful and durable robot capable of withstanding nuclear explosions and causing even greater destruction.

In the true ‘80s mecha spirit, Gunbuster is proudly overpowered, blasting Space Monsters with ease, defeating enemies capable of withstanding the heat of a star and surviving a black hole detonation.

Yet, its most outstanding feature is Gunbuster’s velocity, which nears the speed of light and allows it to reach the galaxy’s center in a couple of hours. Comprised of two state-of-the-art spacecrafts and operated by Earth’s best pilot duo, Gunbuster is as strong as a mecha can get without venturing into the universe-destroying territory.

30 Best Mecha Anime Ever

Mecha is a staple genre of manga and anime. From Gundam to Evangelion, the best mecha series of all time finds clever ways to reinvent the genre.

The EVA units in Neon Genesis Evangelion are a peculiar form of mecha, as they are not robots, but organic beings caged in metal. Yet, unless one goes berserk, they are operated by standard mecha rules. Out of every EVA model, Shinji Ikari’s Unit 01 demonstrates the most formidable abilities, destroying multiple angels by sheer force and overpowering every other unit.

The EVA’s strongest asset compared to other mechs is the Absolute Terror Field – an invincible force shield generated by all EVA units that only other EVAs or angels can break.

The culmination of generations of meticulous mecha design, System-∀99 ∀ Gundam (pronounced Turn A Gundam) is the ultimate cosmic weapon unlike any other suit the franchise has introduced before or since. Turn A’s purpose is to eliminate dangers outside the solar system. As such, its designers weren’t restricted by anything when creating this beast of a machine.

Turn A is powered by an artificial black hole, summoning enough energy not only to operate various weapons but also to use onboard nanomachines for both offense and defense. Turn A’s nanomachines can regenerate its body and, most frighteningly, disintegrate all artificial and organic matter in a giant radius using the Moonlight Butterfly attack.

On top of its outstanding strength and durability, what makes Mazinger Z special are the hidden powers of its seven black boxes, which hold the potential to destroy not only humanity but all of existence.

The titular mech of Space Runaway Ideon is humanity’s final hope to defend itself from the alien race known as the Buff Clan. Though, it seems ridiculously overpowered for its intended purpose. Its Ideon Swords can chop planets in half, and its Black Hole Cannon shoots actual black holes that suck everything around the robot.

Ideon’s most formidable weapon, Wave Leader Cannon, can annihilate anything from enemy fleets to entire galaxies with ease, even if it uses up a significant amount of energy. Conventional mechs stand no chance against this universe-destroying war machine at full power.

In the Getter Robo universe, Getter Emperor is regarded as the final evolution of the Getter, a gigantic mech belonging to neither good nor evil yet capable of wielding universe-destroying power. Getter Emperor is a mech of a galactic scale, and its energy output is likely equal to the Big Bang. Getter Emperor is hinted at being the final form of any Getter Machine.

Yet, its own potential for evolution is limitless – even in its first form, it can destroy the universe. Its connection to the cosmic ray radiation known as the Getter Rays also allows Getter Emperor to predict the future and have some form of control over time and matter.

10 Best Science Fiction Anime Perfect For New Viewers

The anime medium is brimming with different genres, but when it comes to science fiction, it offers an especially wide breadth of quality series.

Gurren Lagann is not a mecha series concerned with keeping things realistic, which allows it to create beings like the absurdly powerful Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Formed during Simon’s final battle against the Antispiral, STTGL is a massive robot larger than the observable universe that represents the ultimate culmination of Spiral Power.

In a practical sense, it means that STTGL is absolute in its might, attacking from any point in time and space, throwing entire galaxies like projectiles, and collapsing universes into void. STTGL’s power level might be comical, yet the excitement of seeing it in action is worth suspending one’s disbelief.
