What do you desire? Money and Wealth? Honor and Pride? Authority and Power? Revenge? Or Something that transcends all these? Whatever you desire is HERE. Upon hearing these lines, one is only reminded of the much-loved manhwa- Tower of God. Written and illustrated by S.I.U. is a South Korean manhwa released as a webtoon. It is one of the most jaw-dropping, nerve-racking twisted stories ever. It has been running successfully since 2010, and still, almost after a decade, the hype about it never dies.
Owing to its huge popularity, it was made into an anime by the name – Kami no tou, which aired from April to June 2020. The manhwa was on quite a long hiatus owing to the bad health of the writer. Fans waited anxiously and prayed for its return. The prayers were finally answered this month when Naver released new chapters on 16 May 2021.
Tower of God revolves around a boy named ” Twenty-Fifth Bam” – an irregular who has spent his entire childhood living in a cave beneath a mystifying tower. He was clueless about the vast richness of the world; for him, the cave was his absolute. When his only companion Rachael decides to leave the cave and climb the tower, the thought of never seeing her again aches his heart, and consequently, he also decides to follow her. The Tower is an enigmatic place divided into massive floors. Each floor is having its civilization and independent kingdoms, and some even unknown to the existence of each other or the tower.
King Zahard is the most powerful being that reigns over this tower. Each person in the tower can control Shinsu – a substance that offers magic-like abilities. Many people battle out and try to advance to the top as it is the place where ambition comes to fruition, this very being the reason why they risk their everything. The battle is carried out in teams, with each member having his specific roles. This manhwa is filled with gravity-defying battle sequences, well-written plot and characters, and, most importantly, mind-boggling twists, which keep us in a loop always asking for more.
Based on their ability to control Shinsu, the strongest characters are classified as Rankers, and the top 1% of them possessing immense strength and agility are called High-Rankers. With so many characters to choose from, here is our list of the top 20 Most Powerful Characters in the Tower of God.
