Top 10 Strongest Naruto Characters

The Top TenXW

1Sage of the Six Paths

The strongest so far after all he did defeat the legendary 10 tailed beast the jubi and some people call him a god even though he did not create the ninja world they say god himself did and granted humans justs's and years past then the savior rikudo aka sage of the six paths saved the world from the most powerful demon/so powerful it surpassed rikudo so he sealed it

Mean the ssp is kami-like, dude is strongest ninja that ever existed, he created the moon on his deathbed a clear testament of his power, he had the ability to create form from nothingness with a mere thought and then bring it to life (men he can use izanagi without side effects)

So6P could go against everyone on this list and leave each one in a body bag... He was the father of Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha. That should ring some bells in your damn head...

He was even considered GOD! The one that defeated and broke apart the great Ten Tailed Jubi into Nine other smaller beasts. Naruto has nothing against the REAL Kami!

Hell... I even believe the Sage of Six Paths can whoop Goku and Vegeta! - MeowMix

He is not the father of the First and Madara. They are reincarnations of Asura and Indra.

Epic. No Comment

2Naruto UzumakiNaruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Naruto is the strongest ninja he saved saske and sakuras but a lot and has the nine tailed fox in him and can control up to 8 of them only madara and minito were able to control it also naruto can use sage mode and can make over 1000 shadow clones he is stronger than saske when he is in sage mode he can also use rasengan only him minito jaria and kakashi can use it

Naruto is one of the strongest ninja alive along maybe sasuke, madara, and tobi. In four-tailed form he destroyed a fraction of a forest with a wave of a hand. In sage mode he took down someone that annihilated konoha. He broke out of a small moon. In six-tailed form he breaths fire and makes rocks seem like asteroids. His speed is more or the same as his father's, who is as fast as a yellow-flash, making him at the same speed has light Itself! In Tailed Beast Mode he's plenty faster than that, literally meaning faster than the speed of light! He took down 5 biju alone in this mode and 1 tailed beast ball equalized with their's combined. He broke Tobi's mask. Despite Rikudo's power, you gotta gig credit 2 someone faster than the speed of light.

Hey remember that Naruto heals himdself anytime, making him invincible plus he moves at the speed of light now, when he is in bijuu mode of course besides the ninetails now can come out since Naruto bonded with him oh and yes sage mode makes him even more stronger and faster oh man I almost forgot he can use the Rasen Shuriken that can disintegrate anything into particles.

Naruto is not invincible. At the end of the series, he lost his healing power, because it only works if his arm happens to be attached to his body, which it wasn't.

Strong not just physically

3Madara Uchiha

Uchiha Madara is the 2nd coming of the Sage of the Six Paths! Founder of the Sharingan, Mangekyou Sharingan and Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Wielder of the feared Wood Release, Possessor of the fabled Rinnegan being the only one able to truly awaken it other than the Sage. He can control Kurama with his eyes. He can bring meteorites into the Earth's atmosphere. He survived the fight against Hashirama and still continued to live for another 4 generations. He can take on the 5 Kage on his own. His Susano'o is complete (it has ' legs) and can carve mountains with one wave of its sword. Uchiha Madara blocks bijuudamas with his gunbai. He's unstoppable.

The Best Ninja in Naruto because man he is the leader of uchiha clan and no power can hit him. The first one to posses and control mangeku sarengan.

Madara can summon two FRIKIN island sized ASTEROIDS using his legendary powers and yet it was like nothing to him. Powers like that can destroy anything. Also how he is the leader of the strongest clan in the ninja history. This ninja is crazy powerful for a villain that's why they made him the final villain of Naruto Shippuden but the most evil thing he did after he got reanimated by Kabuto was to DESTROY THE NINJA WORLD which is almost impossible to do but with legendary god like powers it's possible. Making Madara a important and main character to the Naruto series

No black zetsu totally used him powerful hell no hashirama beat him if he didn't steal wood style have the body kabuto made for him he wouldn't have been looed at as a powerhouse and the five kage would have beat him itachi learned more powerful visual prowess than he did

4Itachi UchihaItachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Itachi is the strongest because he is Itachi. He has a powerful kekkei genkai's and his genjutsu can easily trap naruto because naruto cannot handle genjutsu of that extreme. Madara was not wanting to tell the Itachi that he knew his history because he was afraid that Itachi would plant Amaterasu in his mouth. Itachi gave Sasuke the Amaterasu with high power such that it would trigger when Tobi(claims to be Madara-but his no proof-as he has not removed his mask)uses his sharingan. He defeated Nagato by himself in the 4th shinobi world war. He also broke free from impure world resurrection(A jutsu of same style as re-animation-but with greater impact as it increases offensiveness and defensiveness)The sage of six paths is also strong and Itachi came from his blood line-but whats weird is like he was the first ninja-weren't their shinobi before him, and in order to be ninja one's parents too must possess such extra-ordinary skill. If Itachi defeated Nagato(Pein/Pain)it is obvious ...more

In the Chapter 548 its stated he along with Nagato are the most powerful of all Edo Tenseis. That means he is stronger than the Tschikage, Raikage, Hanzo Mizukage, Kazekage and so on. Itachi also defeated Orochimaru twice, the first time without looking and turned his back on him, the second time when he fought against Sasuke a death battle and were worn up it took him minutes to defeat him without get touched. So further Orochimaru, someone who defeated Jiraya tried sneaky tricks to get him because Itachi is far too strong. So the Sanin are no match for him. Itachi also defeated the most powerful enemies with relative ease and not getting injured or even touched, like Deidara, Kakashi, Asuma. With his Sharingan he could take control of peoples, like stated by Ao at long range, he even didn't not to fight directly with someone to win. Everyone says he would lose to Jiraya that's not true he was deep in his heart a full blood Konoha ninja and wanted to protect Konoha from Akatsuki, ...more

Well itachi never showd us his full power but as he was dieng of illnes and going blind and holding back on sasuke he could have still killed him so I think itachi is the best!

Legendary character of anime

5Hashirama Senju

You people are NUTS! Why is he on 6th? Just close your eyes and try to go through the chapters again. Madara Uchiha was not even slightly harmed whilst fighting the current FIVE KAGES in the WAR! And Hashirama Senju defeated him AND THE NINE-TAILS! (by the way, its HASHIRAMA SENJU) This is the actual list:
5: Itachi Uchiha
4: Naruto Uzumaki
3: Madara Uchiha
2: Hashirama Senju
1: Sage of the six paths (He is a legend by the way, nobody knows if he existed)

Madara should be second, despite the fact that he came back alive and fought hashirama that also has unlimited chakra being edo-tensei. Also fought the tailed beasts being blind and survive their attacks - adeola_tc

Are you nuts. This guy was said to be the strongest ninja of his time (before madara who is supposedly third on this list). He beat madara hands down at the valley of the end. It was even said that hashirama senju almost oreven killed him during their fight. Madara even went to the extent of summoning the nine tails but it was to no avail. The first hokage whipped his butt. Even madara confessed that he was not as strong as the first. He wast madara's rival at all. He was his superior. His wood release jutsu is flawless.

Hashirama should be the second one

He is GOD. Defeated madara several times

6Sasuke UchihaSasuke Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Sasuke uchiha is powerful shinobi because of his strong ninjutsu, fast speed, intelligent mind. He also has power of mangekyo sharingan.
Powerful attack power of chidori and amateratsu. Special defense of susanoo

Sasuke just has so much darkness from corrupt anger which fills out not having a childhood and I think his anger is limitless making his strength unmatchable depending on sasukes mind set

Sasuke is much stronger than some of the top on this page. He can match Naruto, so I personally think he is stronger than Minato, and he should also be at the top of the list with Naruto. Sasuke is strong, and proved himself in battle. He also defeated Itachi; which shows that even if Itachi is strong physically. He is still weak in mind.

Sasuke is equal to naruto

7Obito Uchiha

He may not live up to the strength of Hashirama Senju or Madara Uchiha, but was a major power house through out the series. He was able to tame the Nine Tails, and practically destroy the village. He fooled the whole shinobi world into war, believing that he was the real Madara Uchiha. He took on two Tailed Beast jinjuriki, plus two skilled Leaf ninjas at once, and still gave a decent fight. He tricked Madara and became the 10 tails jinjuriki, and ever since that, he been kicking everyones ass. Not only is this guy strong, but intelligent to, he tricked sasuke, kisame and nagato into doing his dirty work, plus out smarted everyone of his opponents during the war and in general. This guy deserves at least in the top 2 or 3, considering his transformation into a jinjuriki.

Oh come on guys! He was able to use the wood style jutsu with his senju cells without any stress! I mean he created the Fourth Shinobi World War only with his intelligence! I mean this guy proved to be a tough opponent to both Naruto and Sasuke alike. Not to mention he was able to trick Madara into sealing the ten tail jinchuriki into himself. And most importantly he was defeated because he no longer wished to fight and went through a emotional stress not because he wasn't powerful enough

He has the 10 tails now, and the first and second claimed his power was superior to the Sage of Six (how they could know this is beyond me). He should at least be number 2 at the moment behind the Sage of Six, followed by Madara and then Naruto (those could be switched as well. )

He is a one of the most important and interesting characters in the anime. Not negotiable.

8Minato Namikaze

MINATO IS SO ASWSOME. he sealed the 9 tails/kubyi in his own son had a with was the 4 hokage has flying god power is just plan hot was one of the best hokage and is equal with his son had a son and is a blone with blue eyes and should be up at 2 place with his son naruto ps HE IS HOT!

For me MINATO NAMIZAKE is the one of strongest character in naruto. He was the fourth hokage, the man who responsible for sealing the nine-tailed in he's son naruto and the first man defeated tobi/obito & kyuubi too. Minato have a natural talent, he's smarter than UCHIHA ITACHI he created the amazing technique that called RASEGAN Yellow Flash, the Flying Thunder God technique, goes without saying, purely fantastically unique and one of a kind. Minato also has amazing reflexes, as stated by A (Raikage), he is not faster than Raikai through teleportation, but faster than Raikage in reflexes. Argueably, being close to instant in speed and instant doesn't make much of a difference for any humans anyway, so in theory, they were nearly same "speed" and it came down to reflexes. I repeat MINATO NAMIKAZE is the one strongest character.. NOT the stongest :)) thnk you for reading my opinion..

Reckless Felix

He defeated Madara while trying to protect his son, wife, and the village.. Every other fight I see like Madara vs 1st hokage is a 1v1.. But minato beat tobi dealing with multiple things.. And tobi > madara =)

Minato defeated obito so there's no way obito can be above him

9Kaguya Ōtsutsuki

The SAGE OF SIX PATHS said she was stronger. You know, that legendary, god-like individual that sealed the ten tails becoming the first jinchuuriki sealing its body and splitting its mind on his deathbed, said that this character is STRONGER. How is this even a debate

John Lennon said she was, in her prime, physically stronger. Oprah Winfrey later confirmed this in chapter 688.

Why is she 9th? She's the strongest character in all of Naruto, hands down. She was mother of the Sage of the Six Paths, who even though he is at the top of this list, claimed that Kaguya was stronger than even himself. She can look at any technique and master it. She's basically God. She just by looking at you can force you to do her will. This shouldn't be a question of who's stronger, but how much stronger she is compared to the Sage of Six Paths.

She Clearly Number One!

Pain vs Itachi would be a good fight, and Minato vs Pain would be a really good fight. Pain, Itachi, and Minato are tied in 4th 5th and 6th in my oppinion. (Nagato has a jutsu to create a miniature moon, and another jutsu that destroyed the whole entire village in one hit. )

Um hello? He's the strongest member of Akatsuki, so that means he's stronger than itachi.

Um hello? Itachi uchiha defeated him during 4th great ninja war...

I hate it when people vote for more hyped shinobis higher. Like-itachi could do this and that. Itachis is one of my favorite characters, but if you think rationally and analyse the arsenal of each shinobi, I don't see any shinobi other than rikudo himself who can beat Nagato one on one.

Pain is so powerful, he's on this list thrice!

The Contenders

11Hamura Otsutsuki

He's supposed to be in the same tier as the sage of the six paths what is this?!?

I'm shocked! 29th? You must be joking?
He is Kaguya's son and brother of Sage of six paths (Hagoromo Otsutsuki). He and his brother defeated Kaguya together. He and Sage are almost equal and here he is in 29th place. Hemust be in top 3 at least!

Uhhh he has the tenseigan which is (from what I've seen) at least as strong as a renningan

They are the strongest clan

12Kakashi HatakeKakashi Hatake is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Kakashi is one of the most important characters in naruto history, only by that it gives an answer why to be included in the strongest ninjas. I believe he must be in the top 10 because he is so wise and smart. I believe those who say that sometimes it's not the strongest who wins but the smartest had a point!

He should be in top 5 or 10 he very strong and still increase he could beat kabuto yakushi and gara kill sakura and maybe win with raikage are but up a good fight with Hiruzen Sarutobi and will Jiraiya and beat Sasuke Uchiha

one of the strongest konoha ninja amstering most jutsu's best non uchia sharingan user. traiend naruto and sasuke and was trained by minato - mcarzwashere

He should be in top 5

Jjiraiya is just the best with or without sage mode he will kick everybody's ass. Vs itachi he doesn't need sm he kill itachi with mid difficulty. Itachi said him self that even with kisame they will die and they didn't knew about sm. Could you imagine. Jiraiya as never show is real strength in base and in sm because the fights that he did he just did a few techniques. Jiraiya took on all the summonings of pain in base and to those who think that jiraiya is weaker than bee he just can kill bee with base. He almost never fights with sm he always fights whit base. Jiriya is fast, strong, intelligent (after all he discovered the secret of pain) and an incredibly perfect ninja. He is the only one in naruto series that is a perfect and balanced ninja. He is very strong in base even itachi said that he would certainly lose. NO ONE CAN BEAT JIRAIYA!

with sennin mode or without, he's just a Beast.
Both itachi and kisame prefered not to fight with him, kisame stated that jiraiya was "on a whole new level" and Itachi said that the best they could do was a stalemate. That's jiraiya's sage power for you.

How can the teacher of the main protagonist be so down on ranking. Jiraiya is the ultimate teacher, even in his underdeveloped sage mode he took down few of the pains (Imagine his extent in his full sage mode). His summons are very powerful & robust, can manipulate nature chakra etc. He is one of the characters whose powers can be unrivaled by any other current Kages. Without him Naruto wouldn't be at the rank he is now. He is the one the Sage legends & one hell of a pervert.

Is it just me or is somebody else bothered by the fact that Jiraiya is below Kakashi...?

14Hiruzen Sarutobi

Held his own agaisnt Orchimaru, 2nd Hokage, and the 1st Hokage even when he was like 70. Learned every jutsu in the Leaf(the Professor)

Was not sure were to put the 1st Hokage so here he is, defeated Madara and the Kyubbi.

Weakest Kage. Should not even be in top 25.

Because he is a strong Hokage 3 and coach

He is the hokage

Nagato should definitely be in this list, he is stronger than Itachi. He was able to fight Naruto and Bee at once, and Itachi could just save them from the brink of destruction. He might be mistaken as pain on this list.

You do realize that Itachi beat Nagato during the 4th great ninja war right - cay8

Umm, this character should be removed from the list or renamed, cause Pain is currently #9 and they're both the same person. (Nagato=real name, Pain= Alias)

Firstly He has the rinnegan. Also he was stronger than Naruto when he was reanimated but he isn't even top 15

Pain is nagato and he's already number nine dumb

16Pain God Mode

Pretty intense character. Took Smokescreen and Itachi to beat him.

Pain has the power of reningan that could destroy or create anything and he is also a god


It is stronger than all the tailed beasts in naruto. The sage of the six paths was the jinchuruki of the ten tails. Its tailed beast bomb is the strongest.

Ten Tails is the strongest character. He has enough power to destroy the world easily.

The power of it is way too much. Even the sage can't handle it.

Ten tails should in top 5! He is powerful!

18GaaraGaara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is the jinchuuriki of the one-tailed shukaku and can control sand that is stored in his gourd.

I don't know why people think he's weak. He was faster than Sasuke's Amaterasu and Raikage's lightning fast kick, and he wasn't even trying. - Animangalover

Gaara may not be the strongest but in my opinion he is at least stronger than any other kage except Hashirama and on par with Minato. The only reason he actually loses to people who seem stronger is because during the war and when he was kidnapped, he always had his hands full with saving his subordinate's asses. Remember Deidara's Mushroom cloud being dropped on Suna or him protecting the other kage against madara with his sand. Against naruto, he fought when he was unstable, young and like a berserker so that doesn't count. One of the biggest reasons that I would call him greater than other kage's is because he is a lot smarter than them and deduces his opponent's weakness, case in point battle against 2nd Mizukage, in mere moments. So this guy should be higher up the list.

he is strong he can kick your ass and you should watch his story in the past he no friends and even his own dad tried to kill him

Wow 18 place... That needs to get higher... - Nickiminaj4life

He have all the power of uchiha considering he is the son of the sage of the six paths

Indra is epic, awesome, cool, but we don't have feats to know how strong he is

Indra was stronger than Asura but later Asura overcame his strength as the So6P gave his power as an inheritance to Asura,
