Even the most severe critics of the anime will reluctantly admit that the medium is full of outlandish character designs and personalities. From little boys who are actually murderers to cute girls who could easily be killing machines, the only term that perfectly describes such characters is “gap moe”.
The genres where such characters can often be seen include shonen, isekai, fantasy, and adventure, simply because that’s where the creators can really show their creativity. Despite having a disproportionate number of male characters, the anime also has a fair share of overpowered female characters.

7 Saraka: a government negotiator who is actually a billions of years old alien (KADO: the correct answer)
Despite being one of the best negotiators in the Japanese government, Saraka is actually the kind of woman who easily gets angry around the man she has a crush on – Shindou.

Nezuko is equally cute and creepy. With the appearance of a teenage girl but the mental age of a child, she is a demon who is actually more innocent than most humans her age.
Yet when it comes to protecting those she loves (especially Tanjiro), Nezuko shows a spooky side of hers that often shocks demons she fights and slays, including the Swamp Demon and the Demon. of the temple.
3 Irisviel: a loving mother and loving wife who is also a formidable user of magic (Fate / Zero)
For the majority of the anime, Irisviel is revealed to be a soft-spoken young woman who does whatever her powerful family wants, including marrying the man she chooses for her.
Despite this, she has demonstrated that she possesses a surprising courage, which manifests itself when she uses magic against Kirei, whom she knows too powerful to be defeated by her magical abilities.

1 Tomoyo: a teenage otaku who can also manipulate time (when supernatural battles became commonplace)
By all appearances, Tomoyo is an average high school student. She is easily embarrassed in front of Andou, is an otaku, is friendly and forgiving, and shows a surprisingly mature side at times.
This is in stark contrast to the extremely powerful and dangerous ability she possesses, called Closed Clock. She’s actually a time manipulator, and she only uses her abilities in dire situations, such as when her friends’ powers have been threatened by a copier.
