5 Anime Characters Who Gained Power in Weird Ways

Eating hair can be strong?

Anime has always been synonymous with superpowers. Almost every anime character shown has its own superpowers. Not only unique powers, but sometimes anime characters also get their powers in unique ways.

An example is the five anime characters below. He got their powers in a very unique way, so it can be called strange. Want to know who the characters are? Check out the following reviews.

1. Yuji Itadori (Jujutsu Kaisen)

Yuji Itadori has more disgusting way of getting his powers. At the beginning of the series, Yuji involved in a fight against a cursed spirit alongside Megumi Fushiguro.

When the two are besieged, Yuji is forced to eat cursed King Sukuna’s finger. This wakes the Sukuna and Yuji ships to Sukuna. As a substitute for Sukuna, Yuji must have Sukuna’s power in his hands.

2. Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

While eating other fingers is disgusting enough.

Izuku Midoriya is the ninth user of One For All. In the world of My Hero Academia, One for All is the only Quirk that is passed down from generation to generation. While this is enough to make this Quirk very unique, the way it is inherited is no less unique.

In order to inherit One for All, the inheritors must have at least some DNA from the previous user. When All Might was about to give Deku his powers, All Might asked Deku to eat his hair. While it made sense, it felt strange to still get power after eating someone’s hair.

3. Titan Shifter (Attack on Titan)

Like One for All, Titan Shifter is also a force that gets passed down from generation to generation. Only the legacy path is more difficult. The heir must not only eat the previous user’s hair, he must also eat the previous user’s entire body.

When someone is supposed to inherit the power of a Titan Shifter, that person will transform into a pure Titan and be allowed to eat the previous Titan Shifter. That way, that person will inherit the power of the previous Titan Shifter.

4. Warcry (Fairy Tail)

In general, we are known to be weak and cranky when we cry a lot. However, the opposite is true for Warcry. The reason is that the more Warcry cries, the stronger his power becomes.

Warcry is actually a very unique character because the source of his power is his tears. If he was left to cry for too long, most likely he would not have been defeated.

5. Saitama (One Punch Man)

Saitama is already known as the most powerful character ever in anime. No detailed description is given of how Saitama gained her powers. However, Saitama once claimed that after three years of daily 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 squats and 10 km run, he regained his strength.

There is nothing extraordinary in his training, considering how much power Saitama has amassed, at least. Although it was a difficult exercise, it was not impossible for a normal human being to do it. Obviously, it was impossible for anyone to gain the power that could destroy the world with such training.
