Anime Characters Who Never Reach Maximum Potential

Anime characters who never reach their full potential actually still have great growth that could be great in the future! Who are they! Check here!

1. Gotenks (Dragon Ball)

This Gotenks actually has enormous potential. Remember, he can reach Super Saiyan 3 quickly.

Even so, in Dragon Ball Super, Gotenks’ development feels less good.

Gotenks has the potential to quickly overtake Vegeta and Goku, but so far that potential has not been explored further.

Well, if Gohan can get the Gohan Beast, maybe one day Gotenks will be able to reach a new form too. Maybe Super Saiyan Blue Gotenks?

2. Zaraki Kenpachi (Bleach)

Until the end of the Bleach series even Zaraki Kenpachi hasn’t reached his full potential when mastering Bankai, which even takes on the form of a 10th division vice-captain!

3. Kamijou Touma (A Certain Magical Index)

Touma when amnesia has extraordinary anti-magic power from his fist. Imagine when he gets to his full potential when his memory returns.

4. Ronnie Schiatto (Baccano)

Throughout the series Baccano Ronnie is only shown as one of the Martillo family officials alone. In fact, the identity of his true form is a creature that provides the drug of eternal life which is the center of the series’ conflict!

5. Okuyasu Nijimura (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable)

Okuyasu is just a rival to the not-so-bright Josuke’s friend. In fact, The Hand’s own power is capable of separating all matter, and Okuyasu himself is not aware of it!

6. Shishio Makoto (Rurouni Kenshin)

Shishio is the strongest enemy Kenshin and Sanosuke have ever faced in his life. However, his flammable body limited his potential, and instead turned out to be the cause of his death!

7. Watchdog Man (One Punch Man)

This one hero almost never appears to fight, and often suddenly appears with a mountain of victims of his attacks. Even his true strength level is still a mystery!

8. Saitama

It’s pretty crazy indeed, but… Saitama hasn’t reached his full potential, even though he’s already very strong.

You can see the picture when he fought Cosmic Fear Garou. If Saitama is faced with an enemy that is not immediately destroyed (and Saitama may feel angry, because at that time Genos had died), his potential strength could continue to grow insanely.

In fact, Saitama actually surpassed Garou’s Cosmic Fear in the end.

I even suspect that Saitama won’t reach his full potential… because his potential has no limits.

The problem is, enemies like Cosmic Fear Garou are minimal. So it might take a God-level enemy to make Saitama reach the same level of development as when he fought Cosmic Fear Garou.

That’s it, unfortunately, after Saitama returned to the past, he seems to have forgotten the development of that power. Who else is an anime character who never reaches his full potential?
