Although the series has a large cast of characters, only a few can be considered the strongest in the series. Whether it be the officials of the Kingdom of Kouka or one of the legendary Dragon Warriors, these characters prove to be the most powerful the series has featured so far.

10 yona

Initially the sheltered and naïve princess of the Kingdom of Kouka, Yona took up archery under Hak’s tutelage to defend herself while on the run. Although her skill with a bow was poor at first, she gradually improved to the point of shooting an arrow at Yang Kum-Ji, killing him.

While that’s where her skill ends with respect to the anime, the manga also shows Yona learning to wield a sword. In Chapter 82, Yona is able to successfully defend An-Lili against drug lord Hiyou’s men, though not without sustaining injury.

9 so-earned

Although her kind appearance might suggest otherwise, Soo-Won is a very ruthless person. One of the most defining moments in the series is when Soo-Won usurps the throne from Yona’s father, Emperor Il, by sticking a sword through his heart.

While his death from Emperor Il is a notable moment, Soo-Won was briefly shown fighting on nearly even ground against the renowned General Hak, making him a highly skilled swordsman in his own right. Unfortunately, because he contracted a seemingly incurable disease, Soo-Won’s current ability has yet to be determined.


8 shin ah

The second Dragon Warrior to join Yona’s group, Shin-Ah proves to be a capable combatant. He is a skilled swordsman capable of taking down numerous enemies in a short amount of time, as shown during the conflict with Yan Kum-ji and his men.

However, Shin-Ah’s Dragon Eyes are her most notable ability, one that she possesses as the reincarnation of the Blue Dragon. When used, victims are affected by horrific hallucinations that are capable of stopping bodily functions. However, the main drawback of Dragon Eyes is that Shin-Ah himself will be paralyzed due to his lack of mastery over them.


7 Zeno

Unlike the other three Dragon Warriors, Zeno is actually the original Yellow Dragon that served King Hiryuu. His youthful appearance is due to him becoming the host of the Yellow Dragon, which subsequently granted him immortality. Naturally, Zeno cannot be killed by any conventional means.

In battle, Zeno is a fierce fighter; although he has been shown using a sword and dagger, he prefers to fight unarmed. His true strength lies in his regenerative abilities, which manifest in scales that can repair even the most serious injuries. Combined with his stamina, Zeno makes for a truly durable warrior.


6 jae-ha

Freedom-loving Jae-Ha is the third dragon to join Yona’s party, albeit after much convincing. As the reincarnation of the Green Dragon, Jae-Ha possesses the power of the Dragon’s Foot, which gives him the rudimentary ability to fly by leaping great distances. Fittingly, he is also a capable martial artist who specializes in kicks.

Aside from his Dragon’s Foot abilities, Jae-Ha is skilled at throwing small daggers and knives; his preferred strategy is to rain down projectiles on his opponents as he soars into the air. His powers have led people to give him the nickname “The Flying Pirate” during his time in the port of Awa.


5 Kan Soo Jin

Kan Soo-Jin served as one of the Five Generals who supported the Kouka Kingdom. Although he seemed to hold Soo-Won in high regard, this was revealed to be a farce, as he planned to kill Soo-Won in order to take the throne for himself, a plan that would ironically result in his own death.

In battle, Soo-Jin remains true to his title of General, fearlessly defending his position in the north alongside his army with the utmost zeal. While he managed to secure an alliance with the provincial leader Li Hazara as part of this plot against Soo-Won, he is eventually executed by his own men as a result of Soo-Won’s manipulations.


4 hak son

One of the first warriors to be introduced in the series, Son Hak is one of the Five Generals of the Kingdom of Kouka, as well as the one responsible for teaching Yona archery. As a child, he was trained by his adoptive grandfather of similar renown, Son Mundok, along with Soo-Won, making him a capable fighter rivaling even the legendary Dragon Warriors.

Although Hak is capable of wielding other weapons such as a bow, arrow, and sword, his weapon of choice is his Long Guandao, a bisento-like weapon with which he can blow away multiple opponents with ease. Even Soo-Won recognized Hak as a dangerous opponent during his brief confrontation at Hiryuu Castle.


3 hazara li

Sen Province leader Li Hazara initially fought against Kan Soo-Jin and his army in the northern part of Kouka. True to his fearsome appearance, Hazara is extremely cunning and wishes to establish his dominance over the Fire Tribe once he reinforces his already powerful army.

Although he clashed with Soo-Jin at first, the two end up joining forces in an attempt to take over Hiryuu Castle and usurp Soo-Won. While Hazara agrees to reinforce Soo-Jin, he remains ignorant about the story behind Hiryuu Castle and instead focuses on what needs to be done.

two ki-ha

As the first Dragon Warrior to join Yona, Hak, and Yoon, Ki-Ja proved to be not only the first powerhouse of the group, but also the first indication that the group was serious about saving the kingdom of Kouka. His main ability is Dragon’s Claw, the White Dragon’s signature ability.

When not in use, Ki-Ja’s right hand is normal in size, albeit with claws and scales. But when he is in use, his right hand grows to a massive size, which can be used to strike opponents with deadly results. At one point, Hak even comments that one right hand punch from Ki-Ja is enough to kill someone.

1 yu-hon

Although Yu-Hon is already deceased when the plot begins, the impact Yu-Hon has on the story is undeniable. As the father of Soo-Won and the brother of the late Emperor Il, Yu-Hon was a renowned man of war who won numerous victories for Kouka and his late brother, his most notable victory being that of the Xing Kingdom.

Recognized as he was, Yu-Hon also had a very cruel streak; he continued to massacre innocent Xing Kingdom civilians even after the other side admitted defeat. He also developed a detrimental attitude towards the legend of the Four Dragons and executed the High Priest who was selling it. Ultimately, it was Yu-Hon’s death that prompted Soo-Won’s decision to assassinate Emperor Il.
