Top 10 Strongest Sakamoto Days Characters Ranked
10) Shin Asakura
At number 10 in the top 10 strongest Sakamoto Days characters sits Shin Asakura. He’s the deuteragonist of the story as well as an employee at Sakamoto’s convenience store.
Shin was once given the task to assassinate Sakamoto, but after failing, he began working at his convenience store instead.
Along with enhanced strength, speed, and durability befitting an assassin, Shin also has the special ability of clairvoyance and precognition.
He’s able to read the thoughts of people within a 20-meter radius and can sometimes predict someone’s future movements and decisions.
Kashima is Uzuki or X’s subordinate who is willing to kill anyone and everyone for X’s goal. He always wears a reindeer mask to hide his disfigured face, and has modified several parts of his body into weapons.
As X’s subordinate, he’s expected to be strong. But Kashima shows extraordinary ferocity when dealing with enemies. He uses his cyborg features to destroy anyone in his path. His lack of pain also grants him great durability which comes in handy in battles.
X’s team has some crazy fighters and Gaku is one of them. Laidback and nonchalant, this guy will kill anyone in cold-blooded cruelty.
His mercilessness paired with his dispassionate attitude makes him not only one of the strongest Sakamoto Days characters but also one of the most dangerous ones.
Gaku is physically very strong and wields a large mace with a long pole and a cannon at the front. He used it to crush and slaughter the JCC students without a blink.
Not much is known about Kindaka except that he founded The Order along with Satoru Yotsumura. Though the extent of his powers has never been revealed, it’s easy to guess his strength by the fact that he’s one of the founders of The Order.
He must at least be as strong as Yotsmura for them to have an equal partnership. But since his specific powers are unknown, we’ve put him at number 7 on the strongest Sakamoto Days characters ranking.
6) Satoru Yotsumura
Up next is the other founder of The Order: Satoru Yotsumura. Some time ago in the past, he and Kindaka founded the Assassin group with only 4 members.
He was also a professor at Japan Clear Creation (JCC), but after being banished, he decided to work against it.
Yotsumura was one of the strongest assassins of The Order, and in the years after, his powers haven’t decreased.
He could hold his own against powerful Order members like Shishiba, Nagumo, and Osaragi. His bladed three-section staff makes him a formidable opponent.
5) The Order (including Kanaguri)
The Order is a group of assassins within the Japanese Association of Assassins (JAA) who are stronger, fiercer, and deadlier than normal assassins.
Though it has the highest members limit of 10, there are only 5 members at present and Kanaguri who is expelled after his double cross.
The 5 members of The Order are Nagumo, Shishiba, Osaragi, Hyo, and Takamura. All of them are very dangerous in their own rights.
According to Sakamoto, The Order members are so powerful that even if 10 Shin Asakura attacked any one of them, all 10 would die within 6 seconds.
4) Akira Akao
Every ranking needs a badass lady and for the strongest Sakamoto Days characters ranking, we have Akira Akao, niece of Rion. She’s also a first-year student at JCC and a classmate and friend of Shin Asakura.
The true power of Akira comes from her incredible speed. Even among assassins, her speed is something extraordinary. Paired with her enhanced strength and level head, she’s danger itself. Her visioning of paths also gives her a perception that aids her in fights.
3) Taro Sakamoto
Protagonist and the titular character of the series, Taro Sakamoto used to be an elite assassin before he left that world for his wife. He used to be a member of The Order, which is indicative enough of his power.
During his time as an assassin, Sakamoto was the best hitman of all time and never missed a target, with Uzuki being the only exception. He possesses immense strength, speed, durability, and strategic intelligence, and is resistant to both telepathy and hypnosis.
2) Kei Uzuki
Kei Uzuki is the primary antagonist of the series. He’s a serial killer who began targeting assassins and leaving an “X” at his crime scenes. Uzuki also has a gang and operates it under the alias of X and Slur.
Given the fact that he could kill many assassins without suffering an injury, it is proof enough exactly how powerful he is.
He’s also the only man Sakamoto failed to kill. Uzuki is unpredictable and very dangerous, not above going to any length. As of yet, he’s also the second of the strongest Sakamoto Days characters.
Old men in anime are often the coolest of the bunch, and it’s the same for Takamura. A member of The Order, he’s a harmless-looking old man always muttering to himself. But in a fight, it’s all too apparent why he’s the strongest Sakamoto Days character.
Takamura possesses extraordinary strength and speed even in his old age. His reflexes are lightning-fast and his swordsmanship is so great that he can easily cut through steel and wood with his katana. He’s a deadly force of nature, and only Gaku was fortunate enough to survive him.
Our ranking of the top 10 strongest Sakamoto Days characters ends here. These are the characters we’ve known properly as of yet, but surely there will come more powerful characters further in the story.
