Fan poll selects most powerful robot


Nobody expects the cat robot

The argument about the strongest robots in anime is one that will continue in perpetuity. I mean, it's hard to get any sort of consensus about what to even include on the list. Giant robots are one thing, but do you include androids and gynoids? What about cyborgs? Well, Charapedia decided to hold a poll including all of the above and this was the result:

  1. Gurren Lagann (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)
  2. Doraemon (Doraemon)
  3. Ideon (Space Runaway Ideon)
  4. Turn A Gundam (Turn A Gundam)
  5. Gunbuster (Gunbuster)
  6. EVA Unit 01 (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
  7. Gundam (Mobile Suit Gundam)
  8. GaoGaiGar (GaoGaiGar: The King of Braves)
  9. Arale Norimaki (Dr. Slump)
  10. Strike Freedom Gundam (Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny)

That's an interesting mashup there. The fanboy in me is positively pleased with the Gurren making the top of the list. Considering its potential, I'm not really surprised. I'm also not surprised that the Ideon was near the top, but I was surprised at Doraemon's position. Then again, a time traveling cat-bot with a magical pouch is bound to be pretty overpowered. Also, the Turn A Gundam's Moonlight Butterfly pushed it into the top five with ease. Also, the Gunbuster is always appreciated in my book.

Are there any other robots that you'd put in this list?
