Anime has long been winning viewers' hearts with amazing plotlines, smooth storytelling, and overpowered characters for a long time. Be it Satoru Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen or the Idea of Evil in the Berserk universe, anime and manga never seem to disappoint.

10 Goku Can Resist All Natural & Manmade Foes (Dragon Ball)
Goku is the main protagonist of Dragon Ball, an anime that has millions of fans globally. Sent to conquer Earth as a child, he hits his head and ends up becoming one of Earth's strongest and stubborn protectors, keeping his new home safe from all alien invasions.
Although Rick is a genius and can build anything to get himself out of trouble, he wouldn't be able to stand his ground against Goku. Apart from being able to break through a dimensional barrier on his own, Goku is immune to supernatural powers and machines. With his training and unlimited potential, he would easily defeat Rick and Morty.
9 Saitama Can End It All With A Single Blow (One-Punch Man)
One-Punch Man is a two-season-long anime about Saitama, an overpowered superhero who trained so hard that he lost all his hair and became so strong that not a single foe proved challenging enough for him to take an interest.
While Rick and Morty have fun on their escapades, they have also been in situations where they have come back by the skin of their teeth. Saitama, however, is always quite disinterested in his opponents due to their lack of providing a challenge. This matchup would be an easy win for Saitama, so he'd probably make it to the supermarket in time for the good sales.

Left to their wits and devices, Rick and Morty would not be able to cope with Madara's overflowing strength, which allows him to make equally powerful clones of himself. Using his Rinne Sharingan, he can easily trap them in his genjutsu by casting the Infinite Tsukuyomi.
5 Lelouch Can Make Anyone Submit To Him By Using His Geass (Code Geass)

Sent some 400 years in the future, Natsu possesses knowledge of two different times and timelines. A fire mage, he can consume all fire except his own and replenish his spent power.
While normal fire may not faze our grandpa-grandson duo, Natsu's ability to adapt, endure and evolve leaves little room for his opponents to be able to retaliate. A variety of brilliant fire attacks give him the upper hand against most opponents.
2 Ichigo Can Effortlessly Beat Most Of His Enemies (Bleach)
Ichigo Kurosaki, a human who doubles as a Substitute Shinigami, is one of the most powerful characters in Tite Kubo's Bleach. As one of the longest-running anime series ever, it has turned heads and attracted fans for a long time.
Ichigo is an expert in close combat, with superb speed and reflexes, both of which are supported by a keen intellect and spiritual power that is beyond comparison. Despite having all the tech in the world, Rick and Morty might not be able to escape this master swordsman.
