ok so im looking for an anime with a powerful main character, who knows he is powerful, yet has a cool personality..

i guess the perfect example would be alucard in hellsing..
the main character in kaze no stigma (forgot his name) would also fit in...
the main character in darker than black

thats about all i can think of now, who wouldnt fit the description would be for example, naruto, he fails in the personality part,

How powerful are we talking? Just generally strong, or really having some kind of power like in Darker Than Black?

As you don't have a list I don't know what you've already seen too.

So here's a list of Awesome Main Characters and the series they're from, but not all have some superhuman strenght, but all are definitely to be considered strong/awesome and have very interesting and cool personalities. Note that not all are male, if that matters.

Cowboy bebop (Spike)
Baccano! (A bunch of characters as there is no clear main in this series)
Kino's Journey (Kino)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (Motoko)
Trigun (Vash the Stampede)
Samurai Champloo (Both male Mains)
Afro Samurai (Afro)
Phantom: Requiem of the Phantom (Both Mains)
Berserk (Guts & Griffin)
Gungrave (Brandon)



It's not a complete list, but it's some very good series that fit your description.

Densetsu no Yuusha Densetsu (The Legend of Legendary Heroes) - Don't let the title turn you away. I thoroughly enjoyed this series. The first couple of episodes are slow but are for setting up the story. The main character is definitely powerful so are some of the side characters. His personality is laziness and being unmotivated.

Durarara and Baccano have some of the best characters out there.
Main characters who're awesome would go to Soul Eater and Death Note.
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.
Pandora Hearts.
Nabari no Ou.

That's all I can think of.
