the Star Wars The franchise was catapulted into a new generation with Episodes VII, VIII Y IX, and Kylo Ren is the newest Sith Lord in town. He was once Ben Solo, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia, but then he fell to the Dark Side and got a matching bright red lightsaber. You can take on the Jedi, but can you take on warriors from other franchises?
The sprawling world of anime features many powerful characters (especially villains) who can rival or even defeat a Force user, and Kylo Ren will be tested as he takes on these powerful villains in duels. Kylo Ren has his lightsaber, Force telekinetic powers, and Force-enhanced reflexes on his side. Can he prevail against the best of the anime world?
10 Can Defeat: With the help of the Force, Kylo Ren could evade Hidan’s blows and cut him into sizzling pieces with his lightsaber.
Hidan is a member of the intriguing Akatsuki organization, and is a melee warrior with terrifying ability. Hidan is immortal, due to his worship of Jashin, and he can obtain a blood sample from his enemies through his scythe to fuel his jutsu.
Hidan will “join” his enemy by drinking their blood, then inflict mortal wounds that will be reflected on his enemy. Kylo Ren, with the help of the Force, was able to evade Hidan’s blows and cut him into sizzling pieces with his lightsaber. Hidan won’t literally die, but this is close enough.
9 Can’t Defeat – If All For One can bring All Might to the brink, he can crush Kylo Ren too.
All For One is known as the symbol of evil, and for good reason. His Quirk (of the same name) allows him to pass Quirks to and from anyone, including himself, and has accumulated hundreds of powerful Quirks. They can also be combined to form completely new effects.
No Jedi or Sith Lord could hope to get close to All For One and land a blow, as All For One has more than enough Quirks to see the attack coming and take down their foe. If All For One can push All Might to the limit, he can crush Kylo Ren too.
8 Can Defeat: A lightsaber is much harder to resist than a metal blade, and Kylo will eventually pierce through the Female Titan’s skin.
One of the Nine Titans is the Titan Annie Leonhart, who indeed has a female form and a great deal of power at her disposal. Annie may try to stomp on Kylo Ren, but this Sith Lord can easily see attacks and evade them.
Kylo Ren can return fire, hitting Annie’s ankles to take down her Titan. Then Kylo can jump high and land on his back, and hit the back of his neck. Annie can harden her skin, but a lightsaber is much harder to resist than a metal blade, and Kylo will eventually pull it off.
7 Cannot be defeated: Yhwach, King Of The Quincies, can avoid any enemy attack and return fire with ease
In this long-running animated series, King Yhwach of the Quincies served as the last arch villain, and his powers were truly amazing. His strength, speed, and ranged attacks are too much for most enemies, and that’s not even the worst part.
Yhwach can use the Almighty, his supreme power, to see all futures and move through them at will. He can avoid any enemy attack and return fire with ease, and not even the Force can pull Kylo Ren out of it. All hail the king.
6 Can Defeat: Kylo Ren can evade Rui’s web attacks with the Force.
Rui was one of the Lower Six Moons, and ranked among the top 12 demons to serve under Muzan Kibutsuji himself. It has a distinct spider theme, being able to create strong threads and sense its enemies through them. He can then ensnare his enemies and slash them with his sharp net at will.
This won’t work on Kylo Ren, who can evade Rui’s cobweb attacks with the Force to guide him, and his red lightsaber can cut through Rui’s threads and flesh alike. Only a nichirin sword can permanently kill a demon, but Kylo only has to cut Rui and then separate his body parts until the sun rises.
5 Can’t Defeat – Kylo Ren is doomed once Dio uses the world’s infamous time freeze ability to lock him in place
Vampire overlord Dio Brando was reborn in the 1980s, and he had a Stand to display: The World. This Melee Stand has the power to challenge Star Platinum and win, and once his true ability is revealed, Dio’s victory is assured.
Kylo Ren can narrowly avoid The World’s melee attacks, but he’s doomed once Dio uses The World’s infamous time-freezing ability to lock Kylo Ren in place. So it is a simple matter of executing it with thrown knives or a blow to the head of the World itself.
4 Can Defeat: If Kylo acts fast, he can smash Kyoka with his lightsaber before Kyoka’s power gets too great.
This will be a tough fight, but Kylo Ren can pull it off, especially if he acts fast. Kyoka, one of Zeref’s Demon Books, can slowly but surely build her own strength through her Curse power, and can turn off her opponent’s primary senses while amplifying their sense of pain.
These powers worked well against Erza Scarlet, but she didn’t have the Force on her side. Kylo Ren can evade Kyoka’s blows and strike back with the Force to guide him, regardless of his other senses. If Kylo acts fast, he can smash Kyoka with his lightsaber before Kyoka’s power gets too great.
3 Unable to Defeat: Kylo Ren can attempt to cut through Pride’s shadow body, but will get nowhere.
Selim Bradley may seem like a normal kid, but he’s anything but. It is Pride, the homunculus, a being made up of shadows, teeth, and eyes. This creature is over 300 years old and its Selim body is actually a convenient container.
Kylo Ren can try to cut through Pride’s shadow body, but it won’t get anywhere and the Force won’t help at all. Kylo Ren can feel and avoid the worst of Selim’s backfire, but at this rate, he simply needs to retreat and save himself the effort. Pride will do not get off today.
two Can Defeat: Kylo’s Force abilities can redirect and deflect Azula’s fire and lightning
Princess Azula is something of a Sith Lord, with her thirst for power and her ability to shoot lightning bolts from her hands. He may not have a lightsaber, but he can shoot fire with his hands, feet, and mouth like any other Firebender, and do so with incredible skill.
Kylo Ren can face her. Her Force abilities can redirect and deflect Azula’s fire and lightning, then she can hold her in place with the Force and slash her with her lightsaber. Azula will have no defenses to turn to at that time.
1 Can’t be defeated – Blackbeard’s two fruit powers will be too much for Kylo Ren to handle
Captain Blackbeard is one of Luffy’s greatest enemies, and he actually wields two devil fruit powers, not one. He had long since obtained the Dark-Dark Fruit, which allowed him to annihilate his enemies in pure darkness, and he can also unleash shockwaves with the Whitebeard’s Shake-Shake Fruit.
Blackbeard’s two fruit powers will be too much for Kylo Ren to handle, with the Tremor-Tremor fruit forcing Kylo on the defensive until the Dark-Dark Fruit can swallow him forever. Kylo Ren fell to the Dark Side, but he’s not ready to is kind of darkness.
