The strongest Defense Force member in Kaiju No. 8 is none other than Director General Isao Shinomiya. He bears a deep hatred towards the monsters after his wife got killed by them and it has made him the strongest person ever in Defense Force history.

The fact that only he was capable of using a weapon made from the core of Monster #2 is highly commendable.

Kafka Hibino comes under the special mention category since he doesn’t have any powers of his own. Although he is a great guy with an unwavering determination, he has to rely on the power of Monster #8 to get himself out of tricky situations.

Once he turns into Kaiju No. 8, he goes on from becoming the weakest character to the strongest character in the series which is absolutely crazy.
