The Top Ten

I just find him incredibly elegant and sad. His whole background story is extremely tragic, yet he chose to sacrifice everything for his village and his little brother. His jutsu are also amazing.
I agree sasuke kills itachi because itachi let him, obito (tobi) even said
itachi could beat sasuke so easily that he won´t see it. even naruto will lose to him with his sage mode. Itachi can control time with the tsukuyomi. he control every jutsu that he has better than sasuke. his susano has the legendary sword, and sasuke don´t have it.
the whole anime goes around the uchiha clan incident itachi made the plot amazing by having everything predicted and precalculated

More comments about Itachi

He's not perfect, he's not the most powerful one, but he does everything only with his will-power that's what makes him the best.
Naruto is awesome. Even in childhood when he had no one he kept the emotion in and lived his life. He had lots of friend who gave him support. He has lots of confident when he hadn't. He kept trying hard to become a Hokage and became successful so that's why he is the best HOKAGE!
Naruto is epic, he can do things others can't. He has an amazingly awesome demon fox within him. And the SAGE MODE! It's awesome. Whenever I see Naruto on T.V., I smile. He's so stupidly cute.
[Newest]He is very strong

Sasuke and his clan is the one who makes the plot story to be great and fantastic. Remember? Masashi Kishimoto created Sasuke inorder to have a thrill and excitement in the series. He created Sasuke so that the main character, 'naruto", will have a best companion and at the same time, a rival. Yes, Sasuke became cruel and everyone judged him to be one of the worst character in the story and considered as an international criminal. BUT TAKE A LOOK, Sasuke only lose his path because of the tragedy that he's clan had suffer. Just try to put your situation in Sasuke's own. Imagine that your family was murdered with your own brother/sister. Imagine that your own beloved country/village ordered one of your family member to kill all of you where "IN FACT", your own clan/ancestor created and love the village. The village betray your clan. The village that your clan almost give there life to serve for it's sake will be the one who will end up all of your lives just because of a threat? Then now, can you imagine if that situation happens to you. Is it too much atrocity and unfair? Sasuke was the REAL victim of Konoha. But, despite of everything, Sasuke still wants to serve Konoha and he will still continue his clan's legacy. He is very wonderful, no words can describe how he is great. That's a "REAL" hero and he deserve to be called as a HOKAGE. Uchiha clan did very far for Konoha and I think, someone that is an "UCHIHA" deserve to have a position like that and we want "UCHIHA SASUKE" to accomplish it. Beside, Sasuke graduated the academy with the highest academic honor and the smartest student in his batch (Even Shikamaru's intelligence still cannot surpass him. Lets give Sasuke a chance to rule the ninja world (Naruto, you maybe have it next time after Sasuke).

Naruto would be boring if Sasuke is not created.




:And for all the critics who still criticize Sasuke, "YOU ARE ALL HEARTLESS, SELFISH AND HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING"!
Shikamaru is smarter then Sasuke. The reason sasuke got a better academic score than shikamaru is cause he doesn't give a damn about exams. there just a drag
I don't like where the story is going! Sasuke is an intelligent and powerful man who has patient and he never reveals his plans before he reaches his goal. I think Kishi has forgotten how the uchihas characters are. The only thing he has in mind is Sasuke being evil and naruto being an angel. And that they have to fight each other. I doen't see why Sasuke wants to kill Naruto. I only see why Sasuke wants to restore his clan and become hokage.

I really think that Sasuke is the best character and I hope you see the good in this character as well! He is nothing like Orochimaru so doesn't try to make him like that. I would say that Sasuke is more like his brother, Itachi, but with the goal to become hokage and restore the clan. I really want to see him fulfill his goals. He is an smart man so if he really wants to take revenge on Konoha he should do it now, but he doesn't cause he will lose his chance to become Hokage. The same if he fights naruto. I he fights naruto, I can only imagen ig being the same battle as madara-hashirama (but I still think sasuke should win cause he deserves it) or the sanin battle (if sasuke takes the same pattern as Orochimaru I will get pissed and bored). The only interesting and new thing is that sasuke becomes hokage.

I will get pissed if Sasuke dies and doesn't become hokage. I think that the only people deserving to be a hokage right now is an uchiha. If the people of Konoha knows the true story behind the uchihas they will think the same. I mean what Madara, Obito and Itachi did to protect Konoha and their friends. And how the Konoha people betrayed and made the uchihas the cruel people.

If Kishi has the chance to do a sequel to naruto Call it UCHIHA I would easily read it!

I think Kishi is still missing the whole story about the uchiha clan. Hope he makes a movie where he favoures the uchiha.
Well... All that I have to say about him perfect... I got HOOKED to anime and started drawing manga just because I of him and now I LOVE manga at first I wanted to draw him only but after some time manga became my hobby

graduated at age 5, chunin at age 6 then jonin at age 13. nuff said.
Kakashi is the most rounded character. He has his dark past, yet can still make jokes and play around. He feels guilt for those he lost, but he tries to teach his students how to deal with their grief and guilt. Not only can he teach, but he is one of the top shinobi in the village. Not to mention that he was given a position with ANBU at the age of 13 for crying out loud!
Kakashi is one of the most skilled shinboi of the hidden leaf. he is the leader of team 7 and has the Sharingan in one eye. He is also the creator of chidori and has a wide variety of other jutsu of most elements thanks to his sharingan. Kakashi is the son of Sakumo Hatake The white fang of the hidden leaf who was a shinobi of kage level. he was also elected to be hokage and is a big fan of Jiraya's book "make out tactics. "

The Naruto anime cartoon without Gaara would be less tasteful. Great story, great powers, just captivating. In the first part of Naruto series Gaara is also a little scary.
Gaara only number five? This is a travesty D: Gaara is going to crush all of you! Gaara rules!


Yeah, I feel like he should at least be number four (above Sasuke, I believe).
Gaara is cool because he crushes people with sand. Not like Naruto and the others crushes people with bare hands. Gaara should be on the top list because he is way stronger than Naruto!
[Newest]I felt so bad for Gaara when I first heard his story. Everyone hated him. All he needed was one person who loved him, and he had none. So alone. I just wanted to wrap him in a huge hug and never let go.

Shikamaru is so cool. I mean he uses a mediocre set of jutsu combined with his genius level IQ to best all of his opponents, including Hidan.
He's such an interesting character. He's so laid-back, but he jumps into action when his friends are in danger.
Shikamaru should be # 3 next to Naruto and Kakashi! He is so cute I wanna go inside the manga because of him! Laugh out loud Tobi and Nagato weren't even on the list.


[Newest]The moment Shikamaru used shadow possession to knock Kin unconscious, I thought, "Oh, we're dealing with a smart one here". That scene caught me so off guard with its ingenuity that I laughed way too hard at it and replayed it a dozen times. With how Naruto was going so far, I was not expecting someone to use such logic instead of brute force. And Shikamaru only kept getting better after that. Good lad, him!

Hinata is awesome. Her moves are graceful and she is a pure angel. I think Hinata is the most beautiful and cute character out of naruto characters.
What makes Hinata a strong character is something that far surpasses beyond the simple idea her being the kindest of all Naruto characters, which she is. She is among the few characters in the series that consistantly demonstrates the ideals and values celebrated by Ninja society: the Will of Fire, and staying true to one's Nindo, their Ninja Way. Hinata, like Naruto and Rock Lee, has always had the most to prove. Naruto was ostracized as the Jinchurriki and failed for years at the ninja acadamy; Rock Lee was a failure at ninjutsu and genjutsu and faced the possibility of dying from his surgery, or never doing taijutsu again; and Hinata was regarded as a failure as a ninja by her own family, with her father emotionally abusing her as being worthless and her own cousin attempting to murder her. However, all three of them refused to back down, and stuck to their ninja way. All three of them were underdogs who would keep battling even if they were sure they would die. It is these characteristics that made Naruto cheer for a girl he barely knew. Hinata is a true ninja and hero.
She's strong physically and emotionally! Some people say she's weak! She's just shy and has lack of self-confident but she's strong! Maybe stronger than sakura! And has a mature instinct when it comes to love!
[Newest]Hinata is one of the prettiest and most likable characters in Naruto. Also, her reasons for loving someone go way deeper than Sakura's and Ino's, considering the fact that they only like Sasuke because of his looks. Hinata actually has a good reason. To be able to say that she loves somebody, unlike most of the characters in Naruto. And, seriously, she is one of the only characters to actually have a good back story about her past.

8Minato Namikaze
This guy owned madara, nine tails, known as the yellow flash of the leaf, instant teleport to his seal, and also sensei of kakashi, student of pervy sage, and the inventor of rasengan from just looking at the tailed beast bomb... BEST NINJA EVER
I believe he is the best character in my opinion, he can beat anybody by just teleporting.
He is the fastest ninja ever... Even madara can't match his speed
[Newest]He's so cute (i always repeat the story when he was young With Kushina, it's so romantic). Ha can be absolutely cool, calm, smart, a real genius shinobi too. If someone like minato exist, I want to be her Kushina. I'd try my best!

my 4 favs are Naruto, Sasuke, Gaara, and Neji


Neji is more cool than hinata
A genius indeed

What a nonsense why did hinata is more famed than neji
That sulks
Neji is the best! He's hot, strong, and smart, and the only jonin of all the K11. He also had many difficulties in the past, and and with a little help from Naruto and Hiashi, he became the amazing Neji of today. Even though he acts like the cool guy that doesn't care, in actuality he really cares for Lee, Tenten, Hinata, and the rest of the K11. And that's still not mentioning that he sacrificed his life for Hinata and Naruto.
[Newest]Neji, why did you die?

10Rock Lee
Um? Have you seen him fight Garaa? He knows no other Justu style and STILL kicks so much ass, plus he has a Beatles' hairdo and he wears super heavy weights that make craters when they fall! DUDE, THIS GUY IS SO AWESOME.
Bruce Lee based character, thumbs UP!
Rock Lee can own almost anyone in a fight. He so fast Raikage has has a hard time seeing him. He going to kick Sasuke's ASS in the ninja war.
[Newest]He's so funny! And has an amazing story, him and itachi are the best!

The Contenders

Madara is one of the most powerful, evil, and epic character in the Naruto series. He is the most diabolical character ever and I'm glad Masashi Kishimoto decided to make him a Main Antagonist because he is so awesome!
Very cool ulimate ridiculously powerful character. Madara has been heared around the world, he's legend! Not to mention there's more to be see from him and he's not leaving anytime soon
His get a sharingan from the god ti kill senju family. But he failed to killed hashimaru senju than uchiha family want to friend again with senju family.
[Newest]We need someone like Madara to come save us.
Don't worry. I will save the world. You might as well call me Madara Uchiha

He gave naruto his name. He was a grandfather for him. He made him the hero. And he came back from the dead to write the numbers on the back. He was the man who trained 4th hokage. And is a player at the age of 50. And he also had to conserve as much chakra as he possibly could because he knew absolutely nothing about Pain, while gathering information about him/them at the same time. And they were his students so he is much stronger then that. He even killed one of them and Jiraiya had not mastered sage mode. And he was like "oh itachi and kisame I will kill you now" and they even ran away. He could have beaten pain if he wanted to. So why is he on 15th place? He was the best.
Jiraiya is below Sakura? This list is really messed up? I would have actually voted for either Itachi, but I saw he's already on top of the list, so I decided to vote for Minato, but that's when I saw Jiraiya below Sakura!

First off, Sakura is stupid, ugly, not mature at all, and incredibly selfish? Which idiot said that Sakura was selfless? All she did in Part 1 was rely on Naruto and not even care about him. Isn't that shouting out selfish towards you? She even is selfish towards Naruto in Shippuden when she played with his feelings. She was also keeping in mind that Hinata almost died trying to protect the one person she loved and respected. Hinata is a true hero and one of my favorite characters. Sakura is also useless. When people say she's not useless because of her medical ninjutsu! HELLO PEOPLE! Konoha is FILLED with medical ninja. Hinata is a natural at medical ninjutsu and is sooo much stronger than Sakura.

Now back to why Jiraiya is AWESOME. He was trained under the 3rd Hokage and trained the fourth hokage. He is also strong, super powerful, kind, and caring. He gave Naruto his name and passed on the jutsu to Naruto (rasengan). He made Naruto feel like he had family. He also scared away ITACHI!
He simply seems the most awesome character to me. People like different things because of many reasons may it be the culture to which you belong to, maybe the things you have experienced in life, maybe things you always wanted to have or become. Anyways whatever be those reasons, I like Jiraiya the most. Seems to me like the most inspiring and influential character to Naruto,.. Plus he is badass.. So there,..
[Newest]Can't believe! He should be the most or second favourite after Itachi. These people are purely stupid

he's adorable. he's strong, funny and a bit ego. & love him. he's my first and last fav character ever.
He's just awesome, very powerful, funny and awesome. The best I have ever met.
Yeah he rocks!
WHAT?!?!? Kiba? 13?!?! You've got to be kidding me! He should be right next to Gaara! He's so hot! What's wrong with you people! He may not be the best a techniques but he is wild and fearless that's what makes him THE BEST! And he's the most adorable anime character I've seen! Other than Gaara
[Newest]My description of kiba: unkempt fancy!

Art is a blast! It is an explosion! Katsu!
None can beat him!
He's just awesome!
He got a kekkei gen kai!
Dude this guy is a terrorist how can you not like an anime terrorist? Art is an explosion. Enough stuff
Art is an EXPLOSION. Anyone that has 4 mouths, blonde hair, blue eyes, and can blow up anything they want are AMAZING. To who ever thinks Sasuke killed Deidara you are wrong it is clearly obvious Deidara sacrificed himself to kill Sasuke (though Sas-gay doesn't deserve it). Deidara gives a whole knew meaning to going out with a BANG! Pyromaniacs for the win UN!
[Newest]Art Is An Explosion! That's all!

15Obito Uchiha
Only #15? Obito should at least be on the top ten or even better top five, for all he's been through he deserves it.

Obito was an orphan (probably) with little abilities which made him be looked down upon for like 13 years of his life. Then he met Madara and at that point became a puppet. Obito was deceiving Nagato, Madara was deceiving Obito and kayuga/black zetsu was deceiving Madara.

What kind of sick life is that? Poor Obito, just another pawn:(
His loyalty and love to his most precious rin has driven him to no longer believe in a such thing as peace. After seeing rin killed with his very own eyes by the one who promised him to protect her, obito was struck with pain, and it is the kind of pain that makes this character so cold yet so sad.
He must be the best because of just being boss and read manga 600 to 608
[Newest]Obito/Tobi is the best Naruto character ever. His jutsu allows him to dematerialize and rematerialize. Meaning if he wanted to he could win any fight.

Why is Nagato number 15 on the list he should be number 1. I mean seriously I would personally put him number one (because he is my favorite). His story and background are hands down the saddest in the whole anime. Why put him under characters such as Hinata. That doesn't mean I hate her she is still one of my favorites she is In the top 10 I can admit she is the best and my favorite female character in the series but still Nagato should be higher on the list and why putting him below that ass hole sakura. Nagato all the way he is the best.
the true identity of pein
Nagato should definitely be number 1. His story, the creation of the six paths of pain, his abilities- make one of the most original and epic characters of all time. The character of Pain got me interested in anime!

The most awesome character of all. I am amazed to see him in number 20. Lower than INO, are you kidding me! I don't know who all are voting in this thread but seems like they just want to vote for girls who hardly played any part in the series. Pain worked as a pedestal for naruto to grow up. Pain is in the league of itachi and jiraya. The unsung heroes!

The most powerful doujutsu, based on the philosophy of Buddha, representing the omnipresent quality of God (because he is present in multiple places at the same time) with a history that brings pain to your heart. What a tragic hero with a summonings like "emonic statue of the outer path" and ninjutsu like shinra tensei and chibaku tensei. Bloody hell. If Pain is not in top 5 then this isn't a serious list.
I love pein because he's not just a character but a symbol of pain. To know true pain is his philosophy and he utilizes his god like powers to ensure his enemies are destroyed. Besides that he infiltrated and destroyed a whole village all while fighting some kage level ninja (kakashi, naruro, etc. ) And if that's not enough he resurrected all the ninja he killed afterwards. Plus his essence and aura are almost palpable, I mean you can feel the power from this guy and his voice and his theme mix well together. Pain is also one of the scariest characters and everything he does he thinks is alright because bringing pain to people is what he thinks is fair and righteous and he feels justified for his actions. Even though he is just being manipulated by Nagato, Pain (pein) is one of the best characters and the best villain. P.S. itachi is a good guy
Are a lot of people on here girls because I'm pretty sure Hinata being graceful is not cool its kind of lame. I'm fine with Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, and those guys but anyone like hinata is stupid. Another thing is rikudou sennin is the sage of six paths and we don't even really know anything about him except that he is the greatest ninja ever. However this doesn't make him all that great cool is not just reputation. Lastly pein is so deep when he talks putting meaning in his word and I have to say this was the best fight by far in Naruto history.
[Newest]This guy should be on top 5

18Hashirama Senju
Descendant of the Loving Son (and an Ambassador for Peace)
The Strongest Ninja Ever
Good Husband and Good Father
(I want to be like him! )
The hero of humanity, without him konoha wouldn't exist, the world of shinobi would have been under the control of evil forces. He is the model of any shinobi in naruto. Even madara almost worship him

He is the most evil villain in the Natuto series. He has truly amazing abilities and is kind of immortal, as he couldn't be killed hut instead SEALED. He could really stand in battle vs the tailed Naruto, even in a body that had lost an amount of power and health. Sasuke attacked him when Orochimaru was at his weakest, really in a bad health... Maybe elsewise he wouldn't have been able to beat him? Oh and lastly... He killed the 3rd Hokage!
Come on guys, he's such an epic villain, and yet he's so far down the list? We have to do something about this!
Orochimaru is most definitely the most interesting villain this series has ever had. Without a doubt, I would consider him one of the most memeroable villains of all time.
[Newest]He's the man but people r stupid, underrated character,

she is hot and she is number 1 my 2nd favorite female character
Ino is hot and as the kill to mach
She is beautifull. I like her jutsu but what a pity masashi not expossed her much. that's make me curious about her

I love her! Sakura is the most balanced character in the series, she's not the best, but her qualities are various: she's beautiful, smart, skilled, mature, respectful, selfless and kind, even if most of the people claim that she's a monster because she beats Naruto up. Gosh, that's just for the sake of humor, it's more than obvious that she really cares and respects him. She does that because sometimes he really deserves it, you have to admit, but that's not because she enjoys beating people up, but because she wants to better him. So, Sakura for the win!
Her flaws are what actually make her human, and more relatable. So what if she beats Naruto up? I can't stand it whenever someone bashes on her for some stupid reason like "her boobs are too small" or "she's weaker than Hinata". As a remark I would like to say I do not hate Hinata as a character in the story, but I do hate the fandom. I don't see as much Sakura-lovers bashing on Hinata as Hinata-lovers bashing on Sakura.
I tried liking Hinata but I found it impossible only because of the fandom.
Anyway, back on topic, there are countless reasons on why I love Sakura more. (This is also related to shipping) In contrast to Hinata, she is the girl who constantly remembers Naruto's hopes and dreams, mainly being Hokage. In all my years reading Naruto, I have never seen Hinata mention this once. The only thing closest to it is her slapping Naruto awake after Tobi tempted him to go dark.
She is such an awesome charecter! She is smart sweet, strong, sharp and afcorse beautiful. She loves naruto and sasuke so much and she has a pure heart, all she wants is to have team 7 back together smiling, happy and having fun as they deserve. I Olson think that she is an inspiration and a huge rowmadole for many people. And the spiecial thing about her character is that she is real as in a realistic person who is nice loving and caring for the peaple she cares about, she olso achieved a lot by learning in hands of tsunady and being a medical ninja(one of the best) and focusing her talent of easily controlling chakura in her super human strength ability. And she becomes so useful! I really hope that kishimoto ceeps letting Sakura have her moments of glory... if he doesn't then all of the years that I watched naruto sesies in are just a big waist of time!
[Newest]She's trash, thought the whole Naruto series
More comments about Sakura

Hes just SO AWESOME! I love his smirk and everything else about him! Hi definitely deserves a better ranking... DAMN YOU SAKURA FOR KILLING HIM! I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU! *sob sob*
SASORI IS JUST PLAIN AWESOME!, and you guys are so wrong saying that he lost from sakura because HE DIDN'T! Lady chiyo said that he wanted to die and if memory serves sakura got sasori's blade running through her gut and collapsed on the floor! That weakling (sakura) could have never beat sasori! And by the way sasori was so close to winning but he chose to die by LADY CHIYO's trap got it! He still had plenty of strength left and by the way on his second sasori puppet I saw not even a single scratch! SO GET THIS IN MIND SASORI NEVER LOST TO SAKURA HE CHOSE TO DIE! ( I love this guy)
I don't care what anyone says, Sasori is the best written character in Naruto. His story is incredibly sad and you really feel for him. And his voice is flipping cool.
P. S The only reason he lost to Sakura is he left his Minato puppet at home, not to mention the fact he got DOUBLE TEAMED.
[Newest]The hell you stupid idiot why didn't you make the fans happy and kill sakura?!

Madara's effective disguise, that actually has a humorous side to him, as well as he pretty much messes with everyone even the other atkatsuki members.
He doesn't even try to fight people he just avoids cause he's actually one of the most powerful characters.

She is beautiful in her own little way, different from the other girls in naruto

And that's why I like her
Her summoning is a ferret with an eye patch and can help cut down trees - doesn't get much cooler than that.
She's hot, affirmative, and peace ambassador that's why I love her, she's sensitive when it comes with her siblings gaara and kankuro

Sai is an amazing character. I don't see how he's not in the top ten. The development of his character should be enough to easily put him in the top. He goes from not having emotions to being in the library reading books trying to learn and then trying to use what he learned when talking to people! Also, his entrance into the show was classic. He easily toyed around with Naruto on the roof! His skills are a step above everyone else.. I mean look people his whole style is based off drawings! The guy can draw a bird and fly around on it! It doesn't get any cooler than that. Plus he's always loyal going back to when he was with Danzo and later when he got with team 7. Lastly, I just personally love how he stepped in when the girl from the hidden cloud was beating the crap out of Naruto and he stepped in and stopped it! That showed how much he actually cared about Naruto without him even noticing it. From his smile to his fighting style Sai should be in the top 10. More people should appreciate him and what he brought to the series!
I love Sai, he he is so sexy ( thank you, jacket) and cute and adorable at the same time. I think his personality, ironically due to his supposed lack thereof, is way underrated. I mean, he just has hilarious moments (Naruto:That drawing's nothing special. Sai: Yes, you're right. Just like what's between your legs, right? ), he's socially clueless, and he is so hot in, again, a sexy yet adorable way. He's definitely my favorite character in Naruto, perhaps of all time. I also feel sorry for him because he had to watch his brother die twice... And he's a great artist, which I am as well... Minus the great. Whoever said "At least the top ten" yes, you are totally right.
Sai is so cute! I feel sorry for him almost having to kill his brother, he was crying and it was so sad! I find the fact that he is trying to recover his emotions a somewhat attractive aspect of his personality. I think he's undervalued-I mean, he saved Naruto and Sakura a couple of times, they would be dead if it wasn't for him. Also a great artist witha cool sealing jutsu. Other than that I simply think he's adorable and kinda hot!

Sage of Six Paths is one of the coolest dude characters by far.
I think this guy is the best the people who gave him a thumbs down are just hatters
Defeated 10 tails and kickstarted the ninja world... and he gets a 21? You guys suck

Tsunade has many times been called the strongest and most beautiful woman in the world and the greatest medical-nin. Jiraiya credits her with winning the Second Shinobi World War for Konoha, and she created the entire system of medical-nin that has saved so many lives over the years.
She is the coolest elder woman in history! She is even stronger than the raikage! And Danm beautyful
Damn. Her character is just hilarious and so very sad at the same time.

There isn't a single term to describe how amazing this woman is after she gave birth to Naruto she had the nine tails extracted from her and still was able to chain the kyuubi down and transfer some chakra into Naruto to help him against the nine tails on top of that she died rite along side her husband minato while protecting the village her chakra supply is massive the biggest on the show for her bravery and sacrifice she deserves to be in the top five where she rightfully belongs no other character as made me cry more than her and she will always be loved
Kushina Uzumaki (naruto's mother) has red hair and she is so pretty! Shes the wife of minato and is the most beautiful character!
I love all about her!

The 8 Tails Jinchuuriki? He has complete control over his beast and is more skilled with swords than any of the 7 Swordsman of the Mist! He pwned all of Team Hawk and Zetsu. The fact that he's one of the few black anime characters in existence only makes him more unique! He also lays down epic raps.

Haha first I thought he would be very mad and evil and at his first appearance I loled
Very funny character easy to like bust the best raps ever
[Newest]He's one of my favorite chracters

Shino is so underrated. He's my favorite character out of everybody. He's a great character and is quite powerful if you ask me. And he's really intelligent. Shino is just the best with his bugs and everything.
Shino is so cool! He's really strong and super smart! I wish he was in more episodes. Shino for the win
Shino is my number 2 favorite character! He can also be freaky, but he is so awesome with the bug power!

32Suigetsu Hozuki
HE CAN TURN HIMSELF INTO WATER AT WILL. He is a skilled swordsman and is Mangetsu's little brother. Suigetsu definitely deserves to to be one of the seven ninja swordsmen of the mist.

He's just so awesome in his own way. And not to mention handsome! He's so loyal to Orochimaru and lives to serve him. Too bad Gaara and Rock Lee beat him
He was the strongest, and the only thing to ever best him is his disease. It would to been so cool to have him come back, his bone moves are the coolest

Love Konan... The most badass chick on Naruto! I would say she is probably the strongest chick too! She stood out, not all preppy like the other girls. Along with Anko, I think she is the coolest...

Damn you Madara... Damn you...
There are so many reasons. She is the only woman strong enough to make the akatsuki. She is the strongest female. Her chakra bank is beyong huge. She was brave enough to fight the strongest shinobi alive with hardly any chance of surival. She was strong enough to come close against Tobi. If she had had full knowledge of his abilities she would have been able to increase the length of time her jutsu went on for and won. She was loyal to Yahiko and Nagato and she has a unique jutsu.

Also she is beautiful, like really beautiful


well. she's easily one of the hardest person to kill

The only person who could defeat madara...
He was the fastest char

Member of the Akatsuki and partners with itachi Uchiha, use to be part of the the 7 ninja swords men of the mist. Kisame has the largest amount of chakra out of anyone in the Akatsuki. He also wields a sword that devours chakra and at the same time replenishes Kisame. Kisame also has awesome water attributed jutsu.

kisame is awesome shark power and the pro sword
Love that guy sword my favorite villain

Hidan may not be very popular, but I think he is just plain awesome! He carries around this huge scythe, and for cryin' out loud, he's immortal! He's the only character in Naruto that can get his head chopped off and live. Plus, even with his head chopped off, he's still rude and foul-mouthed. You gotta love the crazy immortal guy.
I find it easy to like such a funny an foul mouthed character, such as Hidan. And pairing him with Kakuzu makes him even more adorable.
Hidan is just the ultimate weapon. Even if he is blown sky high he is still alive. It can't get any better.

Suigetsu Is Awesome! When he was younger, he and his brother Mangetsu trained to be one of the 7 ninja swordsman of the mist. After Mangetsu became one of the seven, then died. Suigetsu's dream was shattered and he changed his dream to collecting all of the swords. Suigetsu's ability for fighting is awesome, His ability to liquefy himself at will really helps in battle. My opinion is that he is the best Naruto character and that he is totally amazing.
He's... So... CUTE! He has those adorable shark teeth and he has the executioner sword too! But I wonder if he's anorexic!
Epic dude my favorite in the whole series
[Newest]I love when he argues with Karin

He is definitely my favorite character by far. He's so different, and he was the first character to introduce puppet mastery as a fighting style. He's cute, cool, and totally awesome.
I think being a puppet master is the coolest
Ok so this character is way underused. I mean, look at the potential! During the Chuunin Exams, he made almost everyone fall for his shape-shifting puppets. That could be so cool! Like, pretending to be an enemy and backstabbing his fellow enemies!
Besides, this is a really original concept, and I think it's sad that he's always in Gaara's shadow.
Keep up the good fight, Kankuro


41Anko Mitarashi
Anko is a really crazy character in the Naruto series and is obsessed with dumplings. she was a student of Orochimaru and has he's cursed seal of heaven. Anko uses snake jutsu's like Orochimaru

Anko is awesome! She is a well-rounded character and was a student of Orochimaru. She's really funny and I've always like her sense of style. She can be crazy and funny at times and serious at others.
I admit, my first impression of her was not good. But after finding out about her history with Orochimaru, she became my favorite of the side characters, and one of my favorite in general.


Guy is certainty the funniest person on Naruto, even better if Lee is there. He wants to help Lee so much that it's just extremely sweet. I would want to be his friend if I was there. Plus at least you would know if he liked you. Who wouldn't want someone that would do something like if he found out your favorite flower, no matter how rare it was, would get you about a thousand bouquets of it?! I actually wouldn't mind it. ^. ^
Must be put between Top 5-10. Can match Minato's speed through the Eight Gates. Most likely untouchable. Dude...
Guy is very very strong! He creates his own jutsu and can open the eight gates that is amazing! Also Rock Lee is really boss as well!
[Newest]It's hard to believe that he and Rock Lee are not related because they look so much alike. Guy is kind of funny too, especially since he's easily moved to tears. And he's always outdone by his rival Kakashi.

He may not the strongest but he's fight more then 75% ninja in ninja's war
Zetsu deserves to be in the top 5, why? Solely because of him popping up during the Five Kage Summit all like "HELLOO! " laugh out loud.
Epic character, any who has a carniverous plant around there head has got to be higher than 23 plus he's been in loads of battles

45Asuma Sarutobi
Asuma is a jonin of the hidden leaf and is leader of team 10, he is also son of the 3rd hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi. he was also part of a group called The Twelve Guardian Ninja. he is always seen smoking a cigarette and is lover to Kurenai Yūhi. He uses trench knives infused with is own chakra to take down he's opponents.

Asuma was the leader of team 10 and team Asuma. He died in a fight vs. Akatsuki members Hidan and Kakuzu. Probably the kindest and underrated characters in the entire series.


47Shishui Uchiha
Shishui Uchiha has the most powerful genjutsu in the whole Naruto series

There's one scene with zabuza in it that makes me tear up every time I see it and he is just oh he is by far just my favorite character right next to kakashi and Gara
Come on he can't be below iruka Zabuza was the leader of the seven swords men of the hidden mist. And he is by far one of the bet ninja in the whole of the Naruto series. And where is sakon and ukon because they're my favourite
Zabuza use to be a member of the seven swords men of the hidden mist. he wields a giant sword the size of his body and uses water attributed jutsu. he is the teacher of haku.

[Newest]The scene when he starts crying just gets me!

49Might Guy
He is damn awesome!

Older brother and intelligent frog brother of gamatatsu


51Hatake Kakashi
Hatake Kakashi he is the best of fighting, he his father of the big Kakashi.
Hi is the best an the you now it

Kabuto is the best and powerful cool medical ninja I ever saw
Sage mode power and tragic background make him easy to root for!

Choji is a complete badass. He can eat as much as he wants and still look the same, can use the calories in his food to turn huge and gain tremendous physical strength, and to top it all of he can grow butterfly wings
I ❤ Choji and I think people don't like him just because he's fat, well I got news for you. Him being fat makes his punches awesome.

When Hinata's father disowns her, she takes Hinata under her wing and helps her to become stronger. And she's a master of genjutsu.

55Kaori Uchiha

Tayuya is arrogant and evil. I hate her so much. She should be much lower on the list. I love how Temari kills her by crushing her under the trees.

Grandson of the third and the next hokage after Naruto

58Minato Uzumaki
If you ask me he should be the 2nd. I like Itachi : D
Seriously this far down?! 53?! Ugh!

He has a scar in his face, but it doesn't make him look scary. In fact, he looks very friendly. No wonder if Naruto loves him.
First one to really open up to Naruto and look past the demon that was sealed inside him. A great role model

Kiba's loyalty dog with amazing abilities to protect his master and transfer himself into a clone of kiba every time they do the fang over fang. Also he is very cute and smart with a unique ability to smell the scent of any person or anything. I think about top 20 should do.
I love Akamaru. he is awesome even tough he is a dog

61Young Kakashi

She is so cool... Because she uses an unique element release (crystal release) and she is really very strong among females...
She has the special jutsu she would be top 10 strongest female character in Naruto shippuden
Kick ass female fighter. sakura can no way in hell match up to her.

This thing is from pokemon, not Naruto! (Naruto is way better than pokemon)

A member of the Akatsuki and partnered with Hidan. Kakuza and Hidan are referred to as the "zombie brothers" because their jutsu make them seem immortal. Kakuzu uses the five main elements in he's jutsu's and is considered to be very intelligent.

Badass man if it weren't for shikamaru and choking and inorganic and kakashi wearing him down Naruto wouldn't have beaten him same goes for pain


What's he doing down here? 63? Haku deserves better. For a character that didn't live long into the series, his words and actions really stayed a long time in Naruto's mind. Haku's story was touching, and it was one of the first ones we encountered when we all first started watching Naruto; how can he not make you feel nostalgic?
Haku was a great character. He was the first character I clicked with. When he died I cried for a long time. At first I just couldn't find a character to like I was going to stop watching ig completely. I now have new favorite characters but Haku will always be my favorite.
Nicest guy out there! You know what they say, candle burns twice as bright lasts half as long!

Well he may have the best jutsu

68Sakon and Ukon
They are powerful but not so more even rock lee can beat him easily

69First Hokage
He is the best character even my friend call me hashirama senju
Dunn, he is strong cause he's the FIRST HOKAGE... NOW RESPECT HIM

70Dosu Kinuta
You can't deny a mummy with a dead bird on his back a spot on this list


Coolest most brutal character ever... won his fight againt choji in what? 2 minutes? The boss of under rated ninja


72Yugito Nii

73Monkey D Luffy
Luffy is not a Naruto character, he is from One Piece.
Why luffy is in this list?
Best character by far his fight against Naruto and Sasuke was so good


75Shikaku Nara
Shikaku is Shikamaru's father, leader of the Nara clan and a member of Ino-Shika-Cho. Shikaku at the start of the series was portraied as a drunk lol but he is a very wise leader and a good father. he uses shadow possession jutsu.


77Uchiha Izuna
Had The Mankekyou Sharingan, Could Keep Up With Uchiha Madara (The Leader of the Uchiha)And Gave His Eyes To His Brother.



80Mei Terumi



83Third Raikage
This man fought eight-tails whenever it rampaged and stalled an entire army for three days by himself.

I love this character's conception. I love how mysterious he is because very little is known about him, and I love the ragged black cloak and camouflage clothing. I am somewhat envious that I didn't come up with this guy, but not too envious. I also like how he looks like his brother Meizu, only with straighter hair. Nice job!
Gouzu and Meizu. They were defeated by kakashi and tem 7 quite easily but they are still cool in my opinion. It stinks that they were only in one episode. I would have liked to have seen more of them. I love you, Demon Brothers!

Just like with his brother Gouzu, I love just about everything about him, especially his conception. I love his outfit as well as his wild dark hair. I so wish I could have created him. But again, I'm not too envious. It's also cool how he looks like his twin brother, only his hair is bit more wild. Cool!
Gozu's twin brother and partner. I like him a his brother so much. I often wish I could have created them. I love the Demon Brothers so much! They were taken down easily, but they still rock.

She pretended to be dead to play a trick on her brother. Her laugh is also amusing.
I really like chiyo, she is a very talented ninja and a very kind woman


She saved gaara eventhough it cost her life, she is truly a good woman

This largest and most powerful toad! He rocks!



90Lord Mu

How can you all forget juubi.


93Zaku Abumi



96Boy Band

Why is he not in the show?!

The seven-tails jinchuuriki. She may look shy and calm, but she's a badass tomboy at heart.


So awesome how the nine tails devours him and he eats his flesh such the baddy I love it
