Rules for this list
- The main list will only be consider character forms/versions introduced in Part 4 (i.e. Season 4 of the anime). Characters who was introduced outside of Part 4, but reintroduced with a new form or version in Part 4 will still be considered. (For example: King with his Adult Form, Meliodas with his True Magic form)
- The main list will not consider life-sacrificing powers or abilities. The character itself will still be considered minus the powers due to a life-sacrificing act. (For example: Escanor's The One Ultimate, Indura forms)
- If multiple forms/versions of the same character is in the list, the ones lower on the list will be discarded from the main list. However, characters with a different persona will still be considered. (For example: Meliodas possessed by Demon King, Estarossa who regained his identity as Mael)
Characters who made it into the list but are eliminated due to any of the reasons above will be put in-between the ranks of the main list where applicable.
10. Original Demon
The Sinner is the original form of Chandler and Cusack before they got separated by the Demon King. He should have all the powers the two had, including Full Counter, Absolute Cancel, Resonant, and ability to transform the day into true night.
He could easily overpower both post-noon Escanor and Merlin concurrently.
By combining their individual combat classes, The Sinner has a combat class of 341,000. This puts him solidly above the highest specific combat class of Ludociel's human form at 201,000, and solidly above even 4-Commandment Mael, who was vaguely stated to be "above 200,000".
With the power capable of challenging the Demon King himself, The Sinner is arguably above even Zeldris.
While Ludociel in his angel form was able to match him momentarily, The Sinner quickly overpowered him with his magic power Crisis (終局クライシス Kuraishisu), which converts damage into strength.
9. Full-Grown Wings
Adult King can has shown to be able to read the thoughts of Diane and 4-Commandment Mael.
Though not specifically confirmed, his combat class casually surpasses the 400,000 mark in this form, given the fact that he could almost defeat The Sinner even in a long-distance battle, right after his battle with 4-Commandment Mael.
At close range, he could use multiple forms of Spirit Spear Chastiefol simultaneously, making him one of the most versatile character in the series. He could easily stomp 4-Commandment Mael while at the same time shielding his friends from harm.
Despite draining his magic at a much greater rate and unable to use multiple forms simultaneously, he can fight at beyond ocular range by using his magic sensory, and almost stomped The Sinner as well if not for Zeldris's interference.
8. "The Sun"
Mael is said to be the strongest of the Four Archangels, surpassing even his brother Ludociel, rivaled only by Assault Mode Meliodas.
As the original owner of the Grace, he could utilize it to it's full potential, as seen from Greatest Sun which defeated The Sinner instantly. This makes him easily above 400,000 just like Adult King.
Unlike Escanor, the Grace courses within him, making him a hard-counter against both of Zeldris's magic powers: Omnious Nebula and God, by passively melting his blade. This is a feat that neither Adult King nor Escanor could achieve.
As an Archangel, he could also easily heal himself or others in a matter of seconds, and have the ability to fly. This makes him vastly above the likes of Escanor in terms of endurance and versatility.
Ban the Immortal
Ban is hands-down the fastest character directly shown in the series. He took Demon King Meliodas off-guard, who has an estimated combat class of around 900,000 for having both the Ten Commandments and the equally-powerful true magic power of Meliodas. Later on, he also grabbed Zeldris away from the Commandments, when Assault Mode Meliodas hadn't manage to move even one step.
He was able to hold his own against Demon King Meliodas, and even got him down momentarily with the help of Meliodas battling him at the same time. His passive durability is also enough to withstand a direct hit from Grieving Sage (嘆息の賢人 Tansoku no Kenjin), an island-level energy attack.
A casual earth-splitting punch from Ban stretches for miles into the horizon, and a serious punch cuts through a mile of diamond.
And all of which mentioned was done by Ban without immortality nor his sacred treasure Holy Staff Courechouse (聖棍 クレシューズ Seikon Kureshūzu), which gives him the ability to attack at irrregular speed, angle and distances at will. By pushing his concentration to maximum, Ban destoyed countless Indura spawns in an instant, while avoiding the civilians among them.
6. Final Form
Demon King Zeldris
Not only was Demon King returned to the former power of his old form, he also gained the youth of Zeldris he no longer had before.
Unlike any of the characters above, Demon King Zeldris mere existence creates natural disasters in the mortal world. Even while still holding on to the Grace of the Sun and when the time was nearing noon, Mael openly admitted that he was still no match for him. Since he's superior to Ban and The One Mael, he was easily above 500,000 mark.
He could fight evenly with Adult King, Ban with sacred treasure, and pre-noon Escanor all at once.
He also has his magic power: The Ruler (支配者ザ・ルーラーZa Rūrā). This can be countered by healing, which so far on this list includes Ban and Mael. However, Ban's healing is not enough to be more than just nuisance, and Mael openly admitted to be inferior regardless. The rest beyond the list would be too weak on their own to challenge him anyway.
Even after he was extracted out of Zeldris, he could even possess the land of Britannia and form a giant mountain. In this form, he could invoke Death Zero (虚無 デスゼロDesu Zero), an attack which kept all 7 Deadly Sins at bay, at least until Merlin invoked Power Limit Break (魔力限界突破 パワー・リミットブレイクPawā Rimitto Bureiku).
5. True Magic
While in Meliodas's mind, King, who at this point already awakened Adult form, noted that base Meliodas had greater magic power than him. This is later supported by many instances, such as his Demon Mark 2 form matching blows with lake-amped Final Form Demon King Zeldris.
He can also use Assault Mode, a form he once used to stomp The One Escanor. This may be confusing to some since The One Escanor one-shotted Assault Mode Meliodas in modern day. Some explain it to be because young Escanor couldn't control his power, but the main reason is that the Meliodas during the rematch was not back to full power. His combat class was recorded to be only 142,000, even though later on he could suppress Estarossa, Cusack and Zeldris with Demon King magic simultaneously.
On top of that, Meliodas has his true magic power, unnamed in the series. According to Zeldris, that power surpasses even the Demon King.
4. Fragment of Chaos
A beast powerful enough to challenge Chaos itself. However, he was sealed away by the Goddesses, which means he is still inferior to the likes of Supreme Deity.
In his first form, he could already create a dimension indestructible by conventional means, sucking the Seven Deadly Sins in.
In his second form, he can create a simulation of the future, letting his victims live their whole lives in their minds. He claimed to be able to consume the world itself, of which later he was seen engulfing the ground of the chaotic world.
With the power of Chaos, he was stated to "transcend the concept of death itself". The only way to defeat him was sealing like from the goddesses, or absorb him with an even greater power of Chaos.
3. True Magic
Demon King Meliodas
The single most powerful character directly shown in the series. It might seem like the post-purgatory duo could beat him, but that's only thanks to Meliodas fighting the Demon King himself, who is only as strong as the 10 Commandments.
From the outside, Demon King Meliodas is Meliodas's Assault Mode, plus his newly awakened true magic, plus the power of the Ten Commandments. That is superior to even the full Demon King as in place of Demon King's original body in purgatory is Meliodas's stronger and younger body.
He created a creature who could fire at least 5 island-level energy attacks before being stopped by Zeldris, making this creature already country level by itself.
The main body was not only immune to these attacks, but it wouldn't even harm him thanks to The Ruler (支配者 ザ・ルーラー Za Rūrā), allowing him to freely fire away despite being right at the point of impact.
Demon King Meliodas is immune to any of his own powers, like how he bypassed Zeldris's magic power God (魔神王 ゴッド Goddo). Similarly, the Commandments will also very likely not work on himself.
He was also immune to the magic of Archangels, such as the immunity to brainwashing of the angels he bestowed to Merlin.
In his first form, Arthur could cut apart the dimension Cath created.
He also have clairvoyance, perceiving Camelot by using the power of Chaos.
Arthur can defeat a fragment of Chaos itself, who is conventionally indestructible. After he absorbed Cath, Arthur's sword gained a new form.
Demon King & Supreme Deity
Even with their old bodies, they could overwhelm Meliodas and Goddess Elizabeth.
However, that is after they have distributed their Graces and Commandments. For the Demon King, it was said to be half of his power, which makes the Demon King who cursed Elizabeth equal to the combined powers of the 10 Commandments. That totals up to a combat class of 922,000.
And that is not counting the power he used to create the Demon Realm, and the power he used to seal Chaos afterwards. This means his combat class easily surpassed the 1 million mark, with Supreme Deity being comparable to that.
The creator of the world, including the Supreme Deity, Demon King and the Sacred Tree.
Even though he eventually got sealed, it was only with the combined forces of Demon King and Supreme Deity, the two most powerful beings in existence.
