Androids, mechas, mobile suits, and more, anime in Japan has brought to life some of the most amazing mechanical warriors of all time. And Japanese ranking website “Goo Ranking” decided to ask its readers who they felt was the strongest robot of all time, and here are the results:
First Place: NORIMAKI ARALE
That’s right, most readers decided that the strongest robot of ALL TIME in anime is the adorable, yet amazingly powerful, Norimaki Arale! This. Is. Awesome.
For thus uninitiated in the world of “Dr. Slump”, Norimaki Arale is an android built by Norimaki Senbei. She is well-known for her being a bit naive, having tons of energy, and–of course–having superhuman strength. But how strong is she? Does she really deserve to be the strongest robot of all time? Well, lucky the internet provides us with this proof of her strength:
You saw that right, it was Goku, in his Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan mode, fighting Norimaki Arale, and her power was able to counter Goku’s Kamehameha. But that’s not all, she actually wanted to shoot a blast that was 100 times stronger! Goku was up for the challenge, but a bit of pink poop saved everyone from learning how much destruction that would cause. Yeah, Arale-chan likes to poke poop! Priceless.
Honestly, this is further proof that anime fans in Japan don’t discriminate when it comes to true power, and, of course, they have great sense of humor. After seeing the fight with Goku, my vote goes to Arale-chan too!
Second Place: IDEON
Getting back to your more expected robots on the list, Second Place went to Ideon. This is the main mecha in the anime “Densetsu Kyojin Ideon” (Legendary Giant God Ideon). Standing at over 100 meters, weighing 5,650 tons, and having enough missles, cannons, and guns to blow a whole in the solar system, it is no surprise that he came in at number 2.
Third Place: SUPER TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN
And rounding-up our top three, is the very cool Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann—try saying that three times really fast. This name literally translates to “Super Heaven-Piercing Gurren Lagann”, and he really earns that name with the sheer amount of power he has to offer.
How powerful is this guy? Well, he is 52.8 billion light years tall (528 billion light years tall when in his Giga Drill form), has a mass in the “hyperversal scale” (aka, A LOT), andhe can manipulate space and time.
I know what you are thinking, wouldn’t someone like this destroy Arale-chan? Well, I’m sure if you ask Super Tenga if he wants to have a fight with Arale-chan to get the top spot, he would likely just tell you that he would rather just stay comfortably in third place. HAHA!
Who do you think should be in the top three?
