What are the simplified and traditional characters with the most strokes in the world? You can also tell me how many strokes that Chinese character has. I will be very grateful for any answers.

The most complex character consisting of 58 strokes is pronounced as [biáng]. Biang Biang Noodles – biáng biáng miàn is a typical noodles-dish that is famous and popular in China’s Shaanxi province.

The most complicated, yet meaningful and can be found in a dictionary Chinese word is 龘 [dá,ㄉㄚˊ], 48 strokes.

[龘(汉语拼音:dá/tà;注音符号:ㄊㄚˋ/ㄉㄚˊ; 粤拼:daap6)字是现时Big5码编码当中笔划最多的一个字,笔划达48划。这个字亦是中华民国一般字典中笔划最多的一个字。除此,该字也是全世界所有常用语言中,极为少见笔划相当多的单音节单字.]

[字义: 该字隶属龙部,古代同“龖”,是“龖”字之异体字。《说文》解作“飞龙”。《广韵》说该字之义为“龙飞之状”,龙在天空腾飞貌。]
