Ten Most Powerful Symbiotes

The Marvel Universe’s most fascinating extraterrestrials have been the symbiotes (an alien race called the Klyntars).

Symbiotes are parasitic species that require connecting with host. They have always been a powerful force and a force to reckon with.

We have compiled a list of the 10 most powerful symbiotes and now we want to see which one is the best.

It is worth noting, however, that we will not be counting hosts and instead focus on extraterrestrial entities. Let’s get started with that thought in mind.

10/10 Venom: It’s Not The Most Powerful Symbiote

Venom, one of the 10 most powerful symbiotes, is the most well-known and first to arrive in Marvel’s universe. However, he is also the weakest.

This is because Venom is the first in the bloodline. Symbiotes’ offspring are exponentially stronger than their parent. Venom is also the reason why all offspring symbiotes that are born from him are even more powerful.

Each generation of the symbiote has a greater power than the one before it. It all comes down to how you use it.

Eddie Brock was a firm believer in the Venom symbiote. However, other hosts, Flash Thompson, Mac Gargan, and Peter Parker, have shown distinct variations in its functionality.

Venom first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man issue 252 in 1984 as an alien costume which bonded with Peter Parker during Secret Wars. Venom would not become Venom, and not just a parasitic-symbiote, until The Amazing Spider-Man number 300.

It was reconnected with Eddie Brock 4 years later. Brock at the time had vowed revenge against Peter Parker for his journalistic career.

9/10 Manic/Madman:

In 2003, the Mania symbiote made its debut in Venom volume 1, issue 1. It was cloned using Venom taken by the Ararat Corporation in the hope of dispersing it all over the planet.

Mania was a strange creature. Instead of bonding with its hosts, it would brutally kill them just for the joy of it. It formed a bond with Eric Moody, who was a prisoner, and then it jumped ship to Alfonse poina, an elderly mental patient.

Moody attempted to fight Mania but it bonded with Alfonse, mocking Moody for having been raped in prison. It then raped Moody and killed him.

This is a clear indication that this is not the most friendly symbiote in the 10 Most Powerful Symbiotes.

After forming a friendship with Lee Price, who was already close to Venom, Maniac evolved into Maniac. Price ambushed the original host, injuring her with flamethrowers and a sonic gunnon, and renamed Mania Maniac. He then took control of the symbiote.

Price seems to be inextricably attached to Mania and relying on his immense willpower to keep his connection with the symbiote strong at all times.

Scream

8/10 Scream:

The list of the 10 most powerful Symbiotes ranks Scream at number 8. Lethal Protector was a Venom storyarc that was published in 1993.

It told the story of the evil Life Foundation, its head, Carlton Drake. Drake was a scientist who created a way to create symbiote soldiers by taking seeds from Klyntar alien races and growing them into fully grown symbiotes.

These symbiotes were intended to be used by the Life foundation as guardians. They had a long list wealthy clients who paid the Life foundation to ensure they could live comfortably if the world became ***..

After kidnapping Eddie Brock, Drake was able bond the offspring with the security team of the foundation. He also forcibly extracted five Venom seeds. Donna Diego was one of the victims. She became the yellow-and-red Scream.

Eddie Brock defeated her and eventually killed her. However, Brock’s siblings outlived her, which caused Brock many problems in the future.

7/10 Riot:

Riot is getting a lot attention lately because of his upcoming theatrical debut in Sony Venom, starring Tom Hardy playing Eddie Brock.

Riot is Scream’s brother; Riot bonds with Trevor Cole (a particularly aggressive and unbalanced mecenary who works for the Life foundation’s security forces). Riot is known for being the largest symbiote of the five and for using extremely brutal and aggressive combat techniques.

He was known for creating massive bludgeoning weapons out of his arms, such hammers or maces. However, his true strength was not revealed.

Eddie Brock beat him and sent him and his siblings to the Vault. This is a prison for superhuman offenders that also has a wing that deals with extraterrestrial threats.

He was then experimented upon, and in the Planet of the Symbiotes storyarc in 1995 Venom, trying to subdue an invading symbiotes invasion, let out a loud, telekinetic scream which drives them all to suicide. This then affects Riot, his brothers and himself.

This will take us to the next number on our list of 10 Most Powerful Synbiotes.

6/10 Hybrid:

Riot and his siblings managed to escape the vault after Venom’s telepathic screech. They were able to combine their powers into Hybrid, which was a super hybrid symbiote, that would temporarily bond with Scott Washington, a guard at The Vault.

Scott realized that Hybrid was not a threat by merging with Hybrid. Instead, the tests it had been through were making Hybrid very anxious. The symbiotes kept Scott, who has a lot anger issues, away from becoming violent.

Eddie Brock went on a mission looking for symbiotes. He ended up killing Scott Washington. This was unfortunate for Hybrid, and its desire to be a kind-hearted vigilante.

The US Army would then find Hybrid and separate him. They would then deploy him to the Mercury Team to fight Carnage.

Riot, along with the other symbiotes, was clearly more powerful than a single one. Due to their similar skills and power to Scream, Riot, and Lasher, the sibling symbiotes Phage, Agony and Lasher did not make it onto this list.

As you can see in Carnage versus Deadpool Lasher was trained to be a good friend with War Dog. A dog and a symbiote We’ll get to the point, however, about carnage.

The Hybrid is number 6 on the list of 10 most powerful Symbiotes.

5/10 Carnage:

Carnage on the other side has never been one who holds back. He can sometimes be a little too loose, which can make him vulnerable.

In 1992, The Amazing Spider-Man issue 360 featured Carnage. Carnage was created to be a darker version of Venom. It is a psychopath who has no regard for morality.

Cletus Kasady was Venom’s host and is often shown as Venom’s archenemy.

How did he get here?

He’s Venom’s descendant. Venom’s spawn left Eddie Brock’s prison cell, and Venom reunited with him in prison.

Klyntar doesn’t feel any emotional connection to their children. He didn’t tell Eddie because he didn’t believe it was important.

Carnage was created when the Kasady symbiote offspring formed a bond with Kasady. Their connection was stronger than Brock’s with Venom.

Carnage was released from prison and began to murder people, left, right and center. The word Carnage was inscribed in blood at each crime scene.

The Carnage ranks 5th on the list of 10 Most Powerful Synbiotes.

4/10 Scorn:

Scorn is a Carnage-designed hybrid prosthesis that combines technology and the symbiote. After breaking free from the Raft prison.

American industrialist Michael Hall brings back the carnage from Carnage to Earth. He locks Cletus Kasady up and then uses the symbiote for new armor suits.

Carnage escapes from its prison and forms a relationship with Tanis Nieves (a psychiatrist). Things get weird after that.

Nieves is infected by Carnage’s own children. Nieves, fearful of this, cuts off Nieves’ arm. However, she later reattaches it to it and transforms into Scorn.

Scorn is a techno hybrid, a machine-symbiote capable of fusing itself with various types of technology and weapons.

The Scorn is number 4 on the list of 10 most powerful Symbiotes.

3/10 Anti-Venom:

Anti-Venom was first seen in The Amazing Spider-Man 569, which is part of the 2008 storyline New Ways to Die.

Eddie Brock wasn’t associated with Venom at that time. After being diagnosed with cancer, he took up a job in a soup kitchen. Martin Li (or Mister Negative) is his boss and has a healing touch.

Venom attempts to re-bond to Brock but his skin turns caustic to Venom. He is then enveloped in a new, white symbiote made from fragments of the Venom symbiote. This fuses with Brock’s charged white cells due to Mister Negative.


Anti-Venom is a unique power. While Brock was the host, he was immune to heat, fire, and sound attacks. Anti-Venom has an amazing healing ability. He can create antibodies that can heal diseases, parasites and medications. Spider-Man’s abilities are negated whenever he is within his reach.

Anti-Venom has an unusual flaw. Norman Osborn’s super-venom is concentrated in Freak’s DNA. This makes it very fragile and can render his healing abilities useless if Mister Negative touches it.

Brock will then sacrifice the symbiote to save Spider-Island’s residents from the virus.

The Anti-Venom is number 3 on the list of 10 most powerful Symbiotes.

2/10 The Toxin

Carnage’s spawn, the toxin, is long considered to be the most powerful symbiot. Carnage hated being masked and he was stronger than his offspring.

His grandfather was named Venom as a result. Toxin was a victim of Carnage’s plot to kill him. Venom, however, tried to save it and hoped to raise it with him. However, Venom was concerned that Toxin would become insane because it was the 1000th symbiote from their line.

The Toxin is also capable of performing some amazing feats.

He has the talents of his lineage, including the ability to attach to walls and transform himself, blend in his environment to be virtually invisible, and can create solid weapons using his limbs.

He is also able to heal faster than his predecessors and has superior tracking capabilities. Additionally, he prefers to listen to the ideas of the host rather than take control of it.

He is more resistant to heat and sonic attacks than Carnage.

The Toxin is ranked 2nd on the list of 10 most powerful Symbiotes.

1/10 Knull – The Most Powerful Symbiote

Knull is the Marvel Universe’s most recent symbiote. He also happens to be the most powerful thanks to the person it mated with. He is the Symbiote Lord.

Knull is number one on the list of 10 most powerful symbiotes.

This Venom run gives us a little bit of a history lesson on the Klyntar. The God of the Symbiotes had awakened, and it looked huge when it first appeared in the first issue.

Knull was in essence a god who reacted against the Celestials after they created the universe. He made a living sword out of his shadow and then forged his symbiote blade in the cosmic energies from a Celestials severed head.

He had summoned his first symbiote, SHADOW, to kill a Celestial.
Knull offers a broad range of capabilities.


  • Unbrakinesis refers to a power that he has that allows him produce, control and manipulate a wellspring eldritch dark, which is a manifestation the primordial emptiness that existed prior to the cosmos. Also known as the living abyss,

  • He is the creator and center of the hive mind of the symbiotes, so he can control them. He can revert Venom to a more primitive and hostile state by grabbing control of Venom.

  • He is immortal, has lived for at least 13.7 trillion years, and has all the endurance and strength you can imagine.

Divine electricity is however one of his flaws. Individuals like Thor, who is prone to it can cause him temporary instability.

This is it! Which one of these symbiotic organisms do you prefer? Which one would you like to see adapt for the big screen?
