In no particular order, here is a list of all the best knights in anime that deserve appreciation for their loyalty and power.

Erza Scarlet – Fairy Tail

Zaratras – Seven Deadly Sins
Zaratras is one of the Great Holy Knights who was formerly the strongest in the Liones’ Holy Knights order before his death ten years before the start of the series. Even though he isn’t in the series, he deserves a slot since he is so powerful that deception is the only way to bring him down.

Clare – Claymore
Clare appears to be a cool and efficient demon slayer, or “Youma,” yet behind the surface, she is as human as the victims she saves every day. She is a Claymore, a human-monster hybrid created to confront the Yoma. She is the most powerful of the group. She’s defeated hundreds of Yoma and slain several Claymores, including Miria and Pricilla. Her efforts are quite evident as she begins as one of the lowest-ranking Claymores.
