Anime IQs of Characters

Anime has constantly shown characters in being superhuman in warfare, abilities, sports, regular life and even in knowledge. An area to focus on is a character’s overwhelmingly wit or astounding IQ level in the anime. These characters that are going to be mentioned are either considered genius-level people or rarely seen IQ numbers over 200 in their respected universes.  The Elric brothers are said to have genius status several times in Fullmetal Alchemist. Edward and Alphonse practice to become expert alchemists and always strive for more knowledge especially a specific stone. Shoot, you can say they are ‘philosophers’ seeking the infamous Philosopher’s Stone in the anime and manga. Momo Yaoyorozu is said to have an interesting quirk based on creativity and calories in food. My Hero Academia’s Momo excels at strategic planning in battle and decisive choices quickly in many stimuli. She has S-rank intelligence making her very distinct to other quirk-related individuals.  Shikamaru Nara is the type of student who did not take the Konohagakure’s Ninja Academy seriously. After several shogi defeats, Asuma, Shikamaru’s sensei in Team 10 in Naruto, noticed that his team member might have more to show than just his test scores. It is revealed in episode 64 of Naruto that this Nara clansman has an IQ score of 200 plus during Asuma’s conversation with Kurenai. Kaito Kuroba takes on his father’s identity of Kaito the Kid. He embraces the role of a successor by the title “Phantom Thief Kid” to steal gemstones and return them after the successful heist.  According to Hakuba’s analysis, Kid’s IQ is 400 and flaunts his intellect in Magic Kaito primarily and brief appearances in Case Closed.  Ami Mizuno is one of the protectors of the Solar System in Sailor Moon as Sailor Mercury. She possesses attributes associated with water and ice to aid her in battle alongside with highly specialized programming skills. Sailor Mercury uses her intelligence of 300 IQ to study her foes through a mini supercomputer to gain the advantage and leads the other Sailor Senshi really well. For an honorable mention, we have Alakazam; “Its brain can outperform a supercomputer. Its intelligence quotient is said to be 5,000.” from Pokedex entry #65 in Pokemon Red/Blue. Intelligence quotient (IQ) is just a measurement of perceived numbers for the brain. It is only accurate on the surface as the complexity of the human brain far exceeds just a number. There are many ways to prove yourself and test your skills in life.
