Kaiju No. 8 has recently completed 40 chapters of its manga series. It is the best time to take a quick look at 15 of the strongest characters in Kaiju No. 8. They will be ranked based on their power and the abilities that they have shown in battles.
We also expect this list to get altered as newer characters are added. Especially in terms of the monsters, we have got an indication that far more terrifying Kaiju are yet to appear.
Top 15 Strongest Characters in Kaiju No. 8 Ranked–
15) Iharu –
Iharu works under the third division of the Defense Force and has an arrogant attitude. It also motivates him to be always ahead of the curve and never lose to anyone.
We have seen him in action a couple of times during the Sagamihara Subjugation Operation Arc. He partnered up with Leno and showed great courage in facing Monster #9 head-on.
14) Aoi Kaguragi –
Aoi is also another one of the strongest characters in Kaiju No. 8, who works in the third unit of the Defense Force. He is a serious kind of guy whose only aim is to reach the top by becoming stronger.
He is a man of higher ambitions, as he had applied to the JGSDF before joining the Defense Force. In just his first try, he could draw out 15% of his suit’s power, highlighting his inner potential to become a top-class member in the future.
13) Leno –
Currently, Leno takes 13th place as one of the strongest Kaiju No. 8 characters, but he has the potential to easily break into the top 5 in the future. Although, at first glance, he seems like any other side character, his talent has been recognized by the esteemed vice-captain of the third unit, Soshiro Hoshona.
He believes that Leno can make a proper captain in the future and possess all the qualities to do so. Similar to Iharu, Leno showed his power by taking on Monster #9 valiantly and co-operated perfectly with his compatriot.
12) Ikaruga –
Being a platoon leader in the third unit of the Defense Force, Ikaruga naturally deserves a place higher than the regular members. He is a stern man with a determined look on his eyes that says he is ready to crush any monster in front of him.
He arrived at the Tachikawa base at the right moment to defend everyone from the attack of Monster #10. He also has a humble nature as he gave full importance to Kafka’s plan even though he was lower in the hierarchy than him.
11) Pterosaur Monster –
The Pterosaurs had attacked the Tachikawa Base under the command of Monster #10 and were a formidable group of monsters. They lived in a herd and never operated solo. As a result, they had excellent teamwork, and combined with their ability to fly, they wreaked havoc in the Tachikawa Base.
All the members of the Third Unit combined had difficulty in taking them out. They also seemed intelligent as they knew how to cover their blind spots and did not give a single opening to the Defense Force members.
10) Kikoru Shinomiya –
Kikoru Shinomiya is the daughter of the strongest member of the Defense Force, Isao Shinomiya. Naturally, she has a lot of expectations riding on her shoulders, and safe to say that she has lived up to them. Her brute offensive nature in battles is something to watch as she can tear down through her enemies.
As a new member of the Defense Force, she was the first one to receive her own personal weapon, which speaks a lot about her talent. With her battle ax and unwavering personality, she makes up for a formidable Defense Force member.
9) Eiji Hasegawa –
Eiji Hasegawa is the Vice-Captain of the First Division, and although we haven’t seen exactly what he is capable of, there is no doubt that he deserves a high place on this list.
He is a man who is extremely professional and acts as a mentor for the younger members. Naturally, we can predict that he is also highly experienced from all his battles against monsters over the years.
8) Soshiro Hoshona –
The vice-captain of the Third Unit makes his way to the 8th spot on this list. Soshiro Hoshona is not a conventional fighter like the other members of the Defense Force.
He relies on his mobility and blade-cutting techniques to pierce through any monster. What he lacks in offence, he makes up for it with his speed. His main job is to make a way for his captain to apply the finishing touch by making a path for her with his blades.
7) Monster #10 –
Monster #10 is the latest overpowering monster that we have seen in Kaiju No. 8. The fact that it could command an entire army of Pterosaurs who don’t listen to anyone made him extremely threatening. It was also skilled in fighting and was highly intelligent.
We saw how it had left behind an explosive after-beast even at its dying moments. Not only that, but it was also able to overpower Soshiro Hoshona who is one of the most talented members of the Defense Force.
6) Mina Ashiro –
In comes at number 6, the talented and beautiful captain of the third unit Mina Ashiro. She is often considered a prodigy who has done an excellent job in leading the third unit and reducing the number of casualties caused by monsters in the city.
She is often compared to the level of Gen Narumi and that is enough to highlight her talent. Similar to Kikoru, she is a brute offensive long-range fighter who can blast open any monster with her cannon.
5) Gen Narumi –
When it comes to prodigies, Gen Narumi is up there with the very best. He is one of the newest characters introduced in the series but has already shown what he is capable of.
Although he is not professional, he is highly talented who only cares about skills and results. He also has the ability to match his words as he took down a huge monster that appeared near the first unit base with very little effort.
4) Isao Shinomiya –
It is quite natural that the Director-General of the Defense Force is one of the top four members of the strongest characters in Kaiju No. 8. He has an efficient combination of both superhuman power and lightning-fast speed that can even surpass that of Soshiro Hoshona.
The number of battle scars on his face is a testament to his experience gained on the battlefield. He is only the only person capable of using a weapon built from Monster #10’s core.
3) Monster #2 –
Monster #2 was a ferocious monster that had rampaged through the cities of Japan long back in the past. It was a huge monster possessing devastating explosive power and could shoot laser-like beams through his mouth.
Although we haven’t seen it in action, the weapon made from it highlights the deadly threat it possessed. It had a thick skin granting it heavy durability and allowed it to charge through anything without the least bit of worry.
2) Monster #9 –
Monster #9 is a humanoid monster that has possessed the most threat till now. Its best ability is the power to transform into humans and hide in between them which makes it incredibly hard to detect.
It can also revive dead monsters and create after-beasts capable of mass destruction. The only character that could stand up to him was Monster #8 himself.
1) Kafka Hibino/Monster #8 –
Although Kafka Hibino doesn’t possess any powers of his own after transforming into Monster #8, he has grown to be the strongest character in Kaiju No. 8 without a doubt.
We have seen the destructive abilities he possesses on multiple occasions, especially against the fight with Monster #10 and Isao Shinomiya. Moreover, in the fight against Isao Shinomiya, we saw that he is still not utilizing his full power and has the capability to take things up a notch.
Kaiju No. 8 is still in its initial stages, and we can expect to get introduced to a lot more characters in the future. Replacing Kafka Hibino/Monster #8 from the top spot will be a tough job for anyone. Now we just have to wait and see if anyone can do so in the future. Fans can read Kaiju No. 8 officially from the Mangaplus Shueisha website.

Life took a sudden turn for me when I finally decided to watch Kimi no nawa & Clannad. While both of them made me cry and introduced me to this vast world of anime. The Anime and Manga world is an escape for me from this complicated real world and serves as a relief. Being a content writer for OtakusNotes still feels like a dream and has been one of the best things to happen to me this year. It has been a productive distraction for me and I am loving every moment of it.
