The Ten Commandments – Ranked! Nanatsu no Taizai

The Ten Commandments is the group of the ten allegedly strongest warriors of the Demon Clan. Each member of the group has a unique power gifted to them by the demon king. The unique ability is known as a commandment, which makes them the representatives of the Demon Clan.

However, they don’t stand a chance against the likes of Meliodas, the pacifier demon Chandler, or the napping demon Cusack. This, in turn, raises the question – ‘How powerful are the individual demons of the ten commandments?’

Since the list is based on manga, it is pretty accurate, but worry not there won’t be any spoilers.
