Power of the Verse
The younger weaker characters and any significantly strong Demons that can fight them all currently would sit around Wall to Small Building level. Particularly powerful figures like some of the current pillars scale to Zou Hakuten who is Building level, due to having the combined strength of four demons all of which are much stronger than Small Building level characters. The strongest pillars and some of the upper moons scale from Doma who has a City Block level+ feat. The strongest characters in the verse are Multi-City Block level for being incomparably stronger than the top tiers. The figures currently aren't very fast topping at transonic but could get upgraded depending on whether Zenitsu's lighting can be treated as real. Various abilities such as Dream Manipulation, Sleep Manipulation, Illusion Creation, and Poison Manipulation exist within the verse, making it pretty versatile.
