Tokyo Ghoul is a currently beloved manga and anime series, featuring plot twists and strong characters who are constantly changing! Let's take a look at some of the strongest characters in Tokyo Ghoul. You definitely don't want to bump into any of them in a dark alleyway!

10. Iwao Kuroiwa

Iwao Kuroiwa
Kuroiwa belongs to CCG and is a special class ghoul investigator. He has high grip strength, recovery, and is an extremely capable fighter, and was one of the only humans able to wound one of the strongest ghouls. His son inherited his talent, and is a rank 1 investigator.

9. Ken Kaneki

Kaneki Ken was born as a human. After being attacked by a female ghoul, he became half-human and ghoul, and learned to control his ghoul abilities. Ken awakens his kagune, becoming a kakuja, and gains the nickname of Centipede for his kagune's appearance. Later, he takes on the identity of Sasaki Haise, leading a team of part-ghouls in the CCG.

8. Uta

Uta used to be a leader of the 4th ward, but by the start of Tokyo Ghoul, has started a successful business selling masks to both humans and ghouls. Of course, just because he sells masks doesn't mean he lost the strength that made him leader. He can regenerate rapidly, and has never been seen fighting with his kagune, but he doesn't seem to need it as he can match strong combatants with his bare hands.

7. Hinami Fueguchi

Fueguchi Hinami tokyo ghoul
Don't let this cute ghoul's looks fool you! She's still young, but she has great promise as a fighter, having inherited both her father's offensive rinkaku and her mother's defensive koukaku kagune. While less useful for combat, her hearing and smelling are also very impressive, and she's able to differentiate minor changes in both.

6. Noro

noro tokyo ghoul
Noro is one of the direct subordinates of the One-Eyed King, who is the leader of the terrorist organization Aogiri Tree. Noro is strong not so much because of his combat strength or destructive power (which is nothing to scoff at). He's strong because he can win almost any fight simply by outhealing the opponent's damage! He's considered one of the strongest ghouls out there by the CCG, topped only by the owls and Shachi.

5. Matasaka Kamishiro (Shachi)

Shachi is the former leader of the 6th ward. Although he looks big and scary, and is indeed very strong, he's a gentle soul, and avoids killing unnecessarily. A rank SS bikaku, his ghoul powers are not the only things that make him one of the strongest characters, as he has mastered several different martial arts.

4. Yoshimura

yoshimura tokyo ghoul
Kindhearted Yoshimura manages the 20th ward and owns a café. An SSS ranked ghoul, he was once known to the CCG as the One-Eyed Owl until later revelations made it necessary for them to change his name to the Non-Killing Owl. He's able to take on entire groups of attackers by himself, but only fights when it is absolutely necessary.

3. Tatara

Originally from the Chinese Ghoul organization Chi She Lian, Tatara is the second in command of Aogiri Tree. Although the full extent of his abilities is unclear as of yet, being second in command and having so many ghoul subordinates surely means he is very powerful. Tatara can handle entire crowds of ghouls by himself, and seems to be able to withstand even strong direct hits as well.

2. Eto

eto tokyo ghoul
She is one of the direct subordinates of Aogiri’s Tree, and attacked the Ghoul Detention Center in the 23rd ward. Her kakuja is huge, and Eto is able to spawn extra appendages from it at will. Eto is able to maintain consciousness in her kakuja state, and few people, humans and ghouls alike, have been able to damage her in this form.

1. Kishou Arima

arima tokyo ghoul
When he was 16 years old, he fought with Yomo Renji’s sister. When he was 19 years old, he battled against Yoshimura and cut off his arm. He is a special class ghoul investigator, and his investigative skills are incredible.
