First let us know the list of names of “strongest warrior in Mahabharata“, later let us know brief information about them with image.

Note: We should note that few of the Demigods (Devatas) have not fought, but it doesn’t mean that they are not warrior(s).

Even the Demigods (Devatas) who have not fought, their names are also given in this below list.

Thus Goddess Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi takes different avatars to serve Lord Vishnu in different ways.
