Noblesse has been the most popular among the old Webtoons, and it was among the first manhwas to get an anime adaptation by a Korean Production. Even before collaborating with Naver Webtoon, Noblesse had enjoyed a lot of popularity since its release back in 2007. The series ended recently, in 2019, as 544 chapters strong. It has had a spin-off novel named ‘Alpha,’ which was discontinued later, and a non-story novel named ‘Noblesse S,’ the daily life of Raizel, RK, and other friends. Noblesse has been on a long run, had millions of copies, and been the most viewed manga for quite a time till its end. The plot lives up to its reputation and showcases marvelous story-building. Moreover, the manhwa is famous for its wide range of characters and power levels.
Moving on to the story premise, Noblesse follows Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (referred to as Rai) – who has been asleep for 820 years with no knowledge of mankind’s advancement and scientific successes. In the modern world, he wakes up in an abandoned building in Seoul and goes to a school out of nowhere. There he reunites with his loyal servant, Frankenstein. With Frankenstein’s help, he learns the ways of the new world, but closing the gap of more than 800 years naturally takes a lot of time. He enrolls in the School and befriends an athletic teenager Shinwoo, a computer geek Ikhan, and Shinwoo’s crush Yuna, and a few others. The story follows the introduction of a scientifically enhanced human with unbelievable powers and abilities who run havoc in the city. And as these fights go on, we dwell deeper into the secret behind Raizel and his reason for such a long sleep. Slowly we learn about the organization making these human monsters and Frankenstein under Raizel fighting these people.
Little into the story, we find out that Raizel is “The Noblesse,” The Noble among the Nobles. An extremely powerful being, with extraordinary abilities and the most important thing, elegance. Nobles are a powerful race who are nearly immortal and don’t interfere in human society. Rather they take up the initiative of safeguarding all the weak species in this world, including humans. Other than Nobles, there is one more old and immortal race called the “Werewolves.” Similar to the Nobles, they too are extremely powerful and follow non-intervention with humans. Later in the story, we find the modified humans and chimera monsters. The Noblesse is the highest in command, who is responsible for all the races and species living on this planet; so naturally, he harbors the strength and nobility required to attain this feat.
Of course, the manhwa features stunning fights, hulk warriors, otherworldly magic, and a wide range of supernatural abilities. Throughout the story, the action never disappoints; rather, it just keeps building the craze for more. So let’s lay down the top 20 most powerful characters in noblesse.

He is a noble and one of the current 8 clan leaders in Lukedonia. After his father entered eternal sleep with the previous Lord, Karias inherited the seat of the clan leader of Bester.

With just one shot, he could destroy the whole laboratory in Seoul. When powering up the whip with his own aura, he could clear the whole forest in Lukedonia and upheaval the land into the air. He had the unique ability to convert his aura into a physical force and emitted green electricity when powered up.
- 14) The 3rd Elder –
3rd elder is typically a quiet individual, and he doesn’t venture into the outside world often. Despite this reclusive behavior, he is very observant and calculative, acting methodically and shrewdly in everything he does. He is neither a Noble nor Werewolf; being a modified human, he has shown the most growth in terms of power. He has immense strength, but there was never an instance where he crossed blows with an enemy because it never came to it. He increased his aura manipulation ability to such a level that he could concentrate the aura in his eyes. Once the cells in his pupils are full of energy, he can release the focused aura as a highly volatile, invisible beam at whatever he is looking at. The beam is released at blistering speeds and explodes when it comes into contact with the target. Even Karias, who is formidable even among the Clan Leaders, struggles to keep track of and react to the incredible speed of his blasts.
- 13) Kei Ru –
Kei Ru is a Noble and one of the eight current clan leaders of Lukedonia. He is the head of the Ru clan. He is acknowledged as the strongest of the current clan leaders by both nobles and werewolves. His power is so great that all werewolves acknowledge his strength and grow excited at the thought of challenging him. He defeated Drakon, a very powerful werewolf warrior, without much effort and was able to fight on par with Zaiga, one of the most powerful werewolves who fought Muzaka for the position of the Lord. Zaiga states that out of all the current werewolf warriors, none of them could face him and also states that Kei would have defeated him if he had more time. His soul weapon is ‘Garant,’ a pair of red heavy gauntlets. When imbued with his aura, his soul weapon would become red hot and get ablaze. His physical strength would skyrocket, and he disregards his Aristocracy, becoming a complete warrior. His big scar on the face and marks all over his body is proof of his hulk Legacy.
- 12) Zaiga –
He was the oldest werewolf warrior; last, he served for Maduke when he was the Werewolf Lord. He had a group of his own and easily overpowered many new clan leaders. He competed against Maduke and Muzaka a lot of times for the position of the Werewolf Lord but lost all the time. He was adept at spell casting and sorcery. One of his skills involved using paper talismans that exploded after coming in contact with the enemy. He was shown to cast spells that entailed golden runes to appear and formed a ring around him. He could also create crimson-colored energy blasts and discharge electricity. When transformed into his werewolf-like form, he could display super fast regeneration and sonic speed. He could summon a pack of golden aura wolves, which could even counter the special attacks by the Noble clan leaders themselves. Additionally, he could create a wall with his aura to shield himself against the impact of enemy attacks.
- 11) Garada-
She was a very powerful female warrior and was secretly admired Muzaka since she was small. She was the last person to be beside Muzaka when he was betrayed by Muzaka and Zaiga. She was the second in hand for Muzaka when he was the Werewolf Lord. After he voluntarily left the pack, she got alone under the rule of Marude and was betrayed and sold off to the Union for more experiments. She was drugged and made to attack Muzaka relentlessly in a dreadful form. Garada was a very powerful Werewolf; when transformed, she could display speed and strength rivaled by none other werewolves. Having been put through countless experiments for centuries, Ignes gave Garda a special ability that allows her to stop Muzaka’s regeneration with her attacks. This came as a huge shock to Muzaka, and he could not keep up longer with her. Only After he transformed into a mysterious form, he could take her down, but it cost him a lot to kill his comrade, someone he watched since she was small.
- 10) Dorant-
He is a werewolf warrior working under Maduke. Muzaka believed that Dorant has enough natural talent to succeed him as the Lord of the werewolves in the future. As, Muzaka had been bad-mouthed to the entire pack, filled with lies, Dorant started despising Muzaka. This made Durant more and more devoted to Marude, whereas he previously looked up to Muzaka Only. Dorant has shown ever-increasing power throughout the final fight. He was a true warrior with magnificent golden fur and very long claws. He could fight two clan leaders at once and fight with Frankenstein’s toe to toe. He could even outpace the supersonic Rael and could create craters whenever he punched Frankenstein. He had enough potential to become the next Werewolf leader when he came of age, but the course of actions was not in his favor. After so much planning, they could damage him a little, but it was nothing compared to his godly regenerative powers.
- 9) Titan the Chimera-
Titan was a powerful chimera made by the joint efforts of the werewolves and Ignes. Originally, it was created by the werewolves by sacrificing countless members of their own race (including powerful warriors ) under Maduke’s orders, but then Ignes upgraded it with the data she collected from experiments on humans, nobles, and werewolves. Titan was extremely powerful, able to fight the Noblesse on equal grounds. It was revealed that Titan could develop partial immunity to enemy attacks and got stronger each time he regenerated. He even destroyed Raizel’s blood field many times. He could transform and grow Wings; he had supersonic speed and immense punching power. Titan possessed immense amounts of aura, shown when he destroyed Ignes Kravei’s lab with the shock wave of his scream, and from everyone in the werewolf, the territory being able to feel his. He could fire extremely destructive blasts of aura from his mouth, his eye, and his hands that caused massive destruction.
- 8) 1st Elder-
The self-proclaimed ‘King of the humans,’ he was the strongest scientifically enhanced human in the world. It is a real feat to attain such a high ranking in the list of being a normal human before. He can fight on par with Frankenstein and even overwhelm him, enough to make him use the Blood Spear. The 1st elder controls a satellite name Armageddon, which he seems to control mentally. There seems to be more than one Armageddon, as the 3rd elder stated that if the 1st elder were to die, the remaining Armageddon would activate, which will result in countless lives being lost. Half of his body has been turned into a cybernetic exoskeleton. Using the Blood Stone, the 1st elder undergoes a dramatic transformation. The other half of his body turns into a cybernetic exoskeleton, which he then becomes very large and muscular. When in battle, the 1st elder uses a sword that’s energy source is similar to Frankenstein’s Dark Spear but is very different. With his aura, he can create a lightning spear with the same effects as the Dark Spear. Later he was surprised and killed by Dr.Crombell.
- 7) Erga Kenesis Di Raskreia –
She is the current Lord of the Nobles. Being just under “The Noblesse,” she has the most authority because the Noblesse does not intervene much even among the Nobles. As Lord of the Nobles, Raskreia is tremendously powerful. The traitorous clan leaders consider her to be weak, a rumor they passed on to the Union, which on the observation of the 3rd and 5th elder, proved to be wrong. According to Lagus Tradio, when Drakon, Kaiyo, Mount, and Edian try to attack her, Raskreia awakens her latent power when she becomes enraged after finding out Rajak has gone into eternal sleep. Her soul weapon is ‘Ragnarok,’ a double-edged sword with immense destruction capability as the strongest Soul Weapon. The previous Lord had split his soul into two, so there were two Ragnarok. When she got the other Ragnarok back, her powers skyrocketed, she managed many traitor leaders and the royal guards with ease. She can make swords rain from the sky on her enemies. When using her soul weapon, she can create a blood field like Raizel and showcase immense abilities. She has telepathy and mind-reading, and her aura could shake the whole Noble palace.
- 6) Dr. Crombell-
He is a recurring antagonist of the series. A high ranking scientist of the Union who has been promoted to the rank of the 13th elder after being recognized by elders for his talents. He is also in command of the assassination squad, members of which have infiltrated into almost every sector of the Union and are acting as Crombel’s eyes and ears. Dr. Crombel has been shown to possess superhuman powers that can compete with Frankenstein, although Frankenstein was still fighting with his full powers sealed at the time. His abilities are far superior to what others know, and they are certainly stronger than his experiments like Mari and Jake. Using Bloodstone, his body becomes huge, and veins start bulging, giving a very muscular Look. He has the unique ability of mind link, through which he could share the sense and status of his assassins and keep a log of everything they feel and happens. Dr. Crombel has been shown to possess immense energy powers while clashing with Frankenstein. His aura is completely white, the opposite color of Frankenstein’s. However, they are very similar in potency, appearance, and usage. Yuri even once remarked that Frankenstein and Dr. Crombel’s powers seemed to be similar.
- 5) Frankenstein –
He is Raizel’s devoted servant and has loyally served him for over 820 years. He is a brilliant scientist whose abandoned research notes helped to bring the Union’s scientific knowledge and technology to the advanced level it has reached in the series. He is now the latest addition to the RK-5 bearing the title of “Number 0”. Frankenstein is the strongest human in the whole series; he is stronger than all clan leaders, the current Lord, all Werewolves except Lord Muzaka, and all the Union elders. He has a very mysterious power known as the ‘Dark Spear’; it serves as a soul weapon in battles too. It is so mysterious that it took 100s of years for him to find it and more than 500 years for the next human to even grow compatible with it, i.e., Dr. Cromwell. Frankenstein’s personality is what makes him the sole bearer of the Dark Spear, after transforming into a hideous dark form, that too after taking permission from his master, Raizel. He has the most ominous and darkest aura ever; he can manipulate his aura into a wide range of weapons. He can make dark tentacles, spears, dark projectiles, and a dark shield too.

He also has the ability of mind control and moreover can even negate mind control of others, except Raizel.
- 4) Lagus Tradio –
He was a former Noble clan leader and one of the six traitor clan leaders of Lukedonia. He is the main antagonist of season 7 in the manhwa. His soul weapon is ‘Dolor,’ a cane with a black shaft and a bronze head. He can create red vines with deadly spikes that can impale the enemy from anywhere within a range and imbibe their energy. He could also control their density and strength from thin to thick, depending on the enemy. They could also be bunched together to be used as a shield, which was strong enough to defend against attacks from Frankenstein, Rozaria, and Raskreia. He learned a new ability being a noble who lived for more than 3000 years, ‘Blood Mist Technique,’ in that mist, he can damage anyone he wanted. And even if someone evaded his attack, someone else would get stuck for sure. Moreover, this mist had poison in it, which slowed down Rajak Kertia and killed him. Lagus, after using the Blood Stone, his powers soared high. With the enhanced power, he was able to not only match up with Raizel’s power and easily nullifies his blood field, he even temporarily overwhelms The Noblesse.
- 3) Maduke (2nd Elder)-
He was the current Werewolf Lord and the final antagonist of the story. He was an extremely powerful Werewolf, next only to Muzaka, he was very cruel and sunk in jealousy against Muzaka. Maduke, after embedding the Blood Stone in his body he snatched the aura of all the werewolves in the pack and unlocked the third transformation, which not even Muzaka could do. Maduke transformed into a complete Wolf. So huge and daunting that he easily overpowered Muzaka for a long time. He had very sharp and long claws, which, when embedded with aura, can even send hefty slashes forward. His physical strength and speed are worth to be noted. He did not have a wide range of abilities, but his over-sturdy body and mighty regeneration make all other powers bend before him.
- 2) Muzaka –
Muzaka is the former Lord of the werewolves and the only equal friend of Cadis Etrama Di Raizel. As of the end of the series, he has been reinstated as lord. It is revealed that he is the one responsible for Raizel’s 820-year long hibernation. 800 years ago, Muzaka’s only daughter got killed by humans. To avenge her, Muzaka turned mad and went off to wipe the humans off the face of the earth. The Noblesse, his only friend, had no other choice but to use immense strength to stop Muzaka. He did succeed, but it made Raizel sleep for more than 800 Years. Muzaka has the most mighty transformation of all; after growing fur and Claws, he is the strongest Werewolf ever. His age and experience make him the strongest of all nobles, humans everyone, except Raizel. He has the unique ability of sonic howl, which decimated most of his foes just at the beginning of a fight. As former Lord of the werewolves and the strongest in their entire history, Muzaka possesses an immense amount of aura. His transformation releases enough aura energy to cause the surrounding mountains to shake. He can make huge claws out of aura and use them for defense and offense. Moreover, he can use all the other abilities used by the other Werewolves.
The Most Strongest Character in Noblesse-
- 1) Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (The Noblesse) –
He is the protagonist of the Noblesse manhwa series. He is a Noble from Lukedonia who holds the special title of the Noblesse, which distinguishes him from all other Nobles as their hidden protector, their judge, and if necessary, executioner. He is no doubt the most powerful character in the whole series. Being over every species on earth, he has sovereignty over blood itself. He can manipulate blood and can read minds, telepathy, and control the mind too. No matter who it is, he can stop them on their trails, no matter what they are doing.
Being an overpowered character, it is shown that he has not recovered from his fight against Muzaka yet. So he has a limit to his powers now, making him pay a heavy price whenever he uses too much power to save his friends. That is why Frankenstein tries his best to manage everything without his master having to intervene. He has the highest aura manipulation, as he can form force shields not only for him but to safeguard even fallen friends. He grows magnificent long redwings when used too much power, notably, fighting against Muzaka, Marude, and Lagus. Overusing his power makes him shed tears of blood, but his dignity as the Noblesse tells him to save everyone even if at the cost of his own life.
There are many other characters that would have had a place in this list, but there are no notable fights or feats regarding them—for example, the brother of the Noblesse and the previous Noble Lord. Raizel could manifest such godly powers only at high damage to himself, significantly decreasing his life span. Nearing the end of the series, Raskeria gave the other half of Ragnarok back to Raizel in the hope of replenishing his life span. The manhwa ended with Frankenstein coupled with the 3rd Elder, researching more to save his master, The Noblesse, by finding the truth about his immortality.
