Who are the best Mob Psycho 100 characters?

Ever heard the saying "don't let your emotions get the better of you"? Now, imagine every time that you do, something bad, catastrophic even, happens. Welcome then, to the crazy world of Mob Psycho 100, a series created by manga artist, ONE, the same dude who gave us the excellent One Punch Man series. The story follows our main character Shigeo Kageyama, a mild-mannered middle school boy nicknamed "mob", due to his lack of presence. Despite his unassuming demeanor, he is a powerful esper with immense psychic power. There's a bit of a catch though. His powers are directly linked to his emotions, of which he has no real control over. Hoping to learn how to control his powers, he decides to work for Reigen Arataka, a self-proclaimed psychic. His dream of a normal life is shattered as he is thrust even deeper into the world of the supernatural and encounter other powerful espers like himself. These other characters are just as intriguing as Shigeo himself so why don't we take a closer look at some of them, shall we? Here are some of who we think are the best Mob Psycho 100 characters but feel free to name yours in the comments section too.

    Mob is hands down the best and most powerful character in Mob Psycho 100 and we're not just saying that because he is the titular character of the show. He has proven time and time again that he is able to defeat every enemy or challenger that has come his way so far. Yeah, that goes for the guys included in this very list as well. His psychic powers are so immense for his age and he has this uncanny ability to sense and exorcise evil spirits like they were nothing. What's even scarier is that he's not even fighting at full strength as indicated on his "meter" most of the time. When he goes all out, there are very few people who can stand up to him.

    If there is anyone who is even worthy of battling Mob at full power, it would, of course, have to be the series' main villain, Toichiro Suzuki. First off, he is the leader of the criminal organization Claw so he has no shortage of espers at his disposal. One of his deadly abilities is the absorption of psychic power and unleashing it as he pleases. His other abilities include manipulating gravity and creating protective barriers for himself. His most notable and quite frankly, villain-like power though, is the ability to transfer his psychic to anyone, even non-espers. This effectively affords him an endless horde of followers to do his bidding for him. Toichiro is a baddie through and through that even Mob will have a hard time dealing with.

  2. 3Keiji Mogami

    By the time that fans meet Keiji Mogami, he is just an evil spirit that runs around possessing people. We soon get to learn that he was actually an incredibly powerful esper during his lifetime. In fact, he was formerly known as "The Greatest Psychic of the 20th Century" before he passed away. Even as an evil spirit though, he still possesses great abilities, all of which he uses to wreak havoc on humanity. Aside from possessing his victims, he can create mental mindscapes that can trap other people. He was also shown to take out a lot of Claw's espers by absorbing their life force. Mogami is a testament to how humanity can turn even the best of people bad.

  1. 4Sho Suzuki

    5

    Being the son of Claw's leader, Toichiro Suzuki, Sho possesses some powerful abilities as well. He has been raised in an environment that emphasizes strengthening one's own psychic powers and it shows. We get to see him showcase his impressive power over the course of the series. He is able to use telekinesis as Mob can but he also has this unique ability to bend light to his will. This means that he can basically render himself invisible to anyone if he wants to. One ability that he shares with his father is that he can store energy that allows him to build up power and release it all at once. It's a good thing then that Ryo has chosen the path of good, unlike his father.

  2. 5Ryo Shimazaki

    4

    Ryo Shimazaki is a member of Claw's Ultimate 5, its strongest and most powerful espers. Unfortunately for Mob and his friends, Shimazaki decides to take control over their city and cause destruction. He proves that he is more than capable of dealing with both Teruki and Ritsu in combat. It was only when they came at him as a group that they were able to stop him from causing even more destruction to the city. Shimazaki has his Mind's Eye, which lets him sense other espers around him, making it almost impossible to sneak up on him. His great weapon though is his ability to teleport, which was something that the group had quite a hard time with but Teruki eventually caught on to his patterns.

  3. 6Teruki Hanazawa

    4

    Teruki Hanazawa is one of the first psychics that Mob has encountered at school to challenge him. Upon defeat, Teruki has become an ally that helps Mob battle evil and terrorist organization, Claw.

  4. 7Ritsu Kegeyama

    3

    Ritsu Kageyama is the brother of Shigeo Kageyama that initially did not have any psychic abilities and ends up despising him for it. Later on, his powers eventually emerge and Ritsu ends up joining Sho's resistance group against Claw.

  5. 8Dimple

    Dimple is one of the evil spirits that Mob encounters early on. Having been defeated by him and having been drained of almost all of his powers, he becomes Mob's companion through his adventures.

    "Although he's already an evil spirit by the time that Mob crosses paths with him, he is actually a powerful psychic in his past life so much so that it earned him the title of "The Greatest Psychic of the 20th Century". This alone makes him one of the best and interesting characters in Mob Psycho 100."

    "Despite being the son of Toichiro, Sho turns to good and leads a rebellion against Claw. He inherited his dad's power to store energy as well being as telekinesis like Mob. His unique and cool power is definitely his ability to bend light to his will."

    "The show's big baddie and leader of Claw is one of the best characters in Mob Psycho 100 and poses as the biggest to Mob in terms of psychic abilities. Best of all, he can transfer his powers to anyone and essentially build his own army or espers."

    "The titular character of the show is, of course, the best and most powerful of all Mob Psycho 100 characters. Despite his best effort to suppress his powers, when it does come out, it's truly formidable and amazing."

    "What makes Ryo such a cool character is his ability to teleport and detect the presence of other espers around him and poses a great challenge to Mob's friends during encounters."
