You know, I really have to ask younger me how she remembered nothing in Geometry class but knew the exact power ranking of every character being introduced in Dragon Ball Z. But looks like all that information finally came in handy, because now I can easily tell you that no, Goku isn’t the strongest character in all of anime. Hell, he doesn’t even rank first in his own show! I know at least 2 characters who are more powerful, but how do they fare against each other? For instance, is Whis stronger than Beerus, or is it the other way around?
Listen Whis has proven himself to be stronger than Lord Beerus. This might be confusing for fans because he happens to be Beerus’s assistant. But that’s the thing, each God is trained by an Angel to prepare for their role. And this is where Whis technically overpowers him. Hell, even Akira Toriyama, the creator, has come out and said that the Angels are more powerful.
This makes sense because Whis happens to only be second in power ranking to Zeno, who is the Omni King capable of erasing entire universes, and his father, the Grand Minister. And just like him, Beerus is also capable of destroying planets with a single move so the two go pretty neck to neck from what little we’ve seen of them interacting. In the end, Whis is the mentor and Beerus is the student. Do we think that, in this case, the student has surpassed the teacher?
Personally, I don’t know. There’s a lot to consider here with Beerus being a literal deity and the same goes for Angel. Both have powers that transcended anything else we’ve seen in Dragon Ball before and our favorite boys, Son Goku and Vegeta, don’t even come close. But between the two divine beings, who wins? Welcome to Character Versus – where we take your favorite characters across the Animesphere and pit them against each other to see who comes out on top. Today, it’s the God Of Destruction VS the Guide Angel!
Beerus: Universe 7’s Lord Of Destruction
I mean, with a title like that, it’s easy to see how he defeated Vegeta at Ultra Instinct Saiyan mode without having to move a muscle. The man’s power levels are at 3 billion at 100%, he is a beast.
Using Ki wave displacement powers, he can destroy entire planets if he isn’t careful about where he’s directing all that energy. Beerus also happens to be the first instance of a non-Saiyan being able to make use of the Ultra Instinct skill. His special attacks, the Sphere of Destruction and the Destruction before Creation, are terrifying compared to what else we’ve seen in the Dragon Ball franchise. At this point, he is the strongest character that Goku has ever faced.
Also, this isn’t mentioning his hand in Goku’s defeat, where he took the Super Saiyan down without breaking a sweat. And it’s not hard to see why he’s so feared by the likes of Frieza and the rest. His reputation definitely means business.
Whis: Eccentric Teacher To The Gods
Now Whis is a strange one. He tends to be a little more subdued than his cohort, Beerus. But that doesn’t mean he’s any less lethal.
Being an Angel, he is gifted with speed so inhumane, that he can travel faster than the opponent’s brain synapses working. Like, how do you even begin to counter something like that? During training, he just casually went up against both Goku and Vegeta and would actively counter them with single-finger flicks. Both Saiyans. At the same time.
I mean, the fact that he has faced Broly, our favorite Saiyans, and his pupil, and knocked them out like mere flies each time says so much about how untouchable the guy is right now. Whis’s power levels are insane and even Beerus knows that he can take him out whenever he feels like it.
Winner: Whis Is Stronger Than Beerus!
Unlike Beerus, Whis literally has no one that comes close aside from his father and the literal King of the Multiverse. Whis is just too damn powerful, and anyone that has had him as an opponent can vouch for that.
In this case, the teacher surpasses all, for sure. Whis is the standard right now. The days where Whis is stronger than Beerus are pretty numbered.
