Best Akatsukis in Naruto

The Top Ten
1 Uchiha Itachi

First of all, think about his tough life. He had no choice than to kill everyone he hold dear, all expect Sasuke. Then he had to lie to that only dear person alive and make them hate him for years. And he really loved Sasuke... It was hard for him to hurt his brother and stuff. His life wasn't a lovely one. Second, think about how strong Itachi is. Seriously, Orochimaru couldn't beat him, Kakashi lasted two seconds against him, he killed his clan in one night. Third, think about what an interesting personality he has. He looks emotionless but in reality he's a real sweatheart. He's intelligent, reasonable, observing, loving, loyal, calm, secretive and in all ways cool. Fourth, he plays a big role in the plot. Fifth, he is pretty darn good-looking...

Exactly the reason why itachi is my favorite character. I started to like him when I realized there was somone stronger than sasuke and I got interested by how itachi looked and acted especialy with the definition upon his face. Itachi knew hot to act and use his sharingan. He lied so much to sasuke and pushed him away so much because he loved him. And he wished for sasuke to call him Elder Brother again. It even looked like Itachi hesitated to take Naruto in part one because he wanted to die by sasuke and make him the village hero and Itachi couldn't live with the sin of the Uchiha Massacre.

Think about this...which character has defeated Orochimaru, Kakashi and Deidara in seconds?...
His Susanoo is equipped with the legendary and mythical weapons...
His amazing Mangekyou Sharingan powers...
Always calm and calculating, no matter how strong the opponent is...he will observe and find the weakness...Both Naruto and Sasuke (especially Naruto) learned great deal about this from Itachi.
Most of important of all...Itachi sacrificed himself for the whole world...no fame, no glory...he is the true HERO...

Itachi loved too much. That's all I can say.

He was too good of a person.

He should've lived a normal life, married to Inami (I think that's her name).

SPOILERS AHEAD:
This is only in the manga, but when Itachi has to kill the Uchiha clan, he starts off the Inami because he feels like is she is dead, he can kill anyone after that. But Itacho didn't want her to have a bad death, he actually saved up chakra for weeks to cast a genjutsu on Inami. This genjutsu allowed Inami to live the rest of her life the way it should have been within one second. Getting married to Itachi, having children, aging... and then Inami died in the arms of Itachi.

I cry every time I think of that.

I... would really like to have an older brother like that.

2 Pein - Nagato

Pein is way better than Deidara and Stronger than any akatsuki! He destroyed the hidden leaf within seconds and he wasn't even present in the hidden leaf! Such great power and also such noble heart... He had a bad past! He lost his parents when he was just a kid and his bestfriend in their quest of Peace! One of the best and strongest Naruto characters! Kakashi was killed By HIM and also given a life again by him! He was referred to as the god of the hidden rain! He was immortal until he chose to die! He tempted nine tails to get its full form over Naruto! Best and the most exciting Jutsus ever seen! He was simply AWESOME!

Okay. Think about this. Pain may not have the backstory of Itachi, or the personality of Deidara, but he is the single most epic character in the entire series. His battle with Naruto and his utter curb stomping of the Leaf are testament to that. He not only killed Jiraiya, but also drove Kakashi to the edge of death, and he survived Kurama's possession at the Eight Tails level. All things other Big Bads like Orochimaru could never do. Yes. Itachi is a great character. But as far as combat prowess, nothing but the rage of a demon can stand up to Pain.

His backstory is boss, it made me cry, it made you sad and its all around boss. Itachi might be a boss character except pains motto is boss. The way he treated the akatsuki was boss. But the thing is that mangekyo sharingan vs rinnegan, you have to kill pain six times, then kill the real one with all the abilities. The pain he felt was stronger than itachi and he is a god in power. I mean he killed jiraiya full power while he wasn't trying. In skill pain wins, in character maybe not but he felt like a boss God, in backstory, the only people in the akatsuki with a real backstory are itachi pain and obito. So there. PAIN IS BOSS. Oh and we all can tell how pain is better than deidara STFU FANGIRLS.

I like Pain! Cause first of all he had a hard and suffering past and second he wanted just an understanding! He did all those criminal things to make people understand what had happened to him and Yahiko. And at end of it he brought back everyone he had killed. He was a good guy!

3 Deidara Deidara is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

Deidara, the lovable,loud, fangirl worthy, gir-I mean boy. It's kind of understandable to see him as a girl, due to his perfect long blonde hair. But there's some features about him, like his mischievous smirk and daring blue eyes that clearly show he's a boy. As for his personality, its hard to put Deidara's personality into words. He can be absolutely stunning on the battlefield, with his pure fiery passion for his explosive art shining through. And somehow, that fiery attitude turns to a loud rambunctious, ego swelled man who probably thinks too highly of himself sometimes. But somehow, he's something like the murderer in a show that you just seem drawn to and interested in. He seems to have, deep inside, an loving and childish nature that he only seems to show once or twice. But those once or twice really changes your outlook of him.

Ahh geez, Deidara is absolutely stunning. Not only is he super sexy, but he's artistic, funny, always has a smirk on his face, and plays it cool most of the time unless he's around Tobi. He is also very clever, as shown in a few battle scenes in the anime, he uses his wit and manages to get out of situations. Like blowing himself up. Or maybe putting tiny explosives into sand that is used as a shield. In my opinion, he deserves to be #2 of the top ten Akatsuki members, since Itachi should obviously be #1.

Deidara is just an all around great character with an explosive personality. There's something about him that makes him lovable yet terrifying at the same time that really just makes you want to see more of him. His relationship with his Danna and Tobi really just adds to his character, showing two different sides of the same artist. All in all, he's a perfect character and by far my favourite on the show.

His work attracted the attention of Pain. Pain sent other Akatsuki members to recruit Deidara.
His face is cute when he gets annoyed by Tobi. Despite Tobi's habit of accidentally angering Deidara, Deidara takes great care to keep Tobi out of harm's way and even dedicates his final moments to apologizing to him.
Deidara refers to his creations as art, believing the most beautiful thing about them to be their detonation

4 Sasori Sasori is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Mad underrated. Killed the greatest Kage to ever live with ease and turned his corpse into a puppet. Allowing him to use iron sand any time he wants. On top of that he was a pioneer in the puppet style. Able to control 100+, basically a walking genius. And deidara even states in the manga that sasori was much stronger than he.

Another reason why I despise Sakura is because she killed this man with an old lady. Sasori is underrated. Sakura needs to die for punishment. Sasori is the best. He can control 100 puppets, the ultimate puppet master.

He looks so cute and he doesn't even have wrinkles like Itachi, not that Itachi isn't a great character. It really sucks how Sakura (Who I see crying every other time I saw her in the anime) managed to kill him even if it was with elder Chiyos

Should have been on the top 5 at least. He was such a great it's because that he died early in the anime that people don't like him much.

5 Hoshigaki Kisame

I love Kisame because of how he dies. He feeds himself to his sharks to protect information. Admirable!

Kisame rules! Who else do you know that has a scaly sword which freaking EATS chakra?!

The guy is a Shark, has a chakra-eating sword and enough chakra reserver to be considerad a "non-tailed tail beast", also, has great ninjutsu, strenght and obviously taijutsu... Not to mention he is super inteligent. Go Kisame

Best akatsuki member, because he knows the world is a lie.

6 Hidan Hidan is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

Hidan is an incredibly underrated character, his simple, darker design, and ultimately more realistic design makes him more appealing than some of the more "anime like" designs of the other characters. Hidan is effectively immortal and his abrasive, loud, and uncaring personality complements and meshes very well with that fact. His weapons and personal style flows together quite smoothly, and his over the top cursing highlights this fact, making a complete and comedic character. Don't forget, to give him a bit more edge, his main attack is literally collecting the blood of his enemy's and creating a sacred ritual with it, creating a unique power to injure others through injuring himself, which works perfectly, since, you know, he's immortal.

Hidan is the best character in my opinion. His fights and agility were beautiful to watch! It wasn't just "who can make the biggest explosion" he had choreography and gorgeous acrobatics. His personality was a breath of fresh air, regarding that all the other Akatsuki took themselves extremely seriously and/or had a tragic sob story, Hidan showed that he enjoyed fighting. He wasn't all moody and made calm to appear menacing, he was a very relatable character/minus the bloodshed/ I highly believe that he is quite underrated and should be higher in the list

Hidan is the most underrated akatsuki member
I love underrated characters. Bids. Isn't done in the series yet I can't wait until he gets out of
The forest. But people hate him and think he is weak but he isn't he j
St didn't take Shikamaru seriously. And Boone in the whole group can
kill him and don't say that cut off his head.
Only person j think he can't kill is pain Tobias konan. He is the only member
That really surprised me with immortal skills

I like Hidan because he's just so handsome and cool. But I like the most is he's IMMORTAL. Just think how awesome is Hidan. Sometimes he kinda funny and he don't let others to kill his target. I hope Hidan can be at least top 5. I just love him so much~

7 Konan Konan is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

How can she possibly not be higher?!?!?! Laugh out loud, she is the most underrated character in the akatsuki! She completely beasted tobi, if not for his stupid izanagi, and, sure she had prep before that, but come on... Where could she have seen tobi and his move set... I doubt someone like hidan could do that

She's like, the ONLY female Akatsuki member.Give her some credit people! And not only is she that, but she's the last to die(Technically, Tobi and Zetsu doesn't really count...Is that cheating? ).After, say Nagato, Kisame, ITACHI, Deidara, come on! AND, she has blue hair! Any blue lovers here?

She is just so awesome! Even on little screen time, she showed that she's so amazing. She's 4th strongest but my 1st favorite!

Why is she at the bottom? If I were you she should be at #4. Ps her paper cannot be destroyed by fire or water..

8 Uchiha Obito

He is the best as he is the last surviving member if the whole akatsuki. Also he was able to become a jinchuriki of the ten tails and keep its psychotic mind under control during a flippin battle. Also he has abilities to warp through time space. Although his personality sucks, he could beat any member of akatsuki with his moves.

Best akatsuki character and he's to bi madara is some other guy.

Turns into ten tails jinchuruki, know both dark and light jutsu, only sage mode attacks can affect him, in on par with sasuke and Naruto

9 Kakuzu

You kidding me? This guy destroyed KAKASHI (plus! Ino plus! Chouji). He has 5 lives, uses every element (who needs rinnegan laugh out loud), can put himself together if he loses hand or leg (but he can't lose it anyway... You can't cut his leg off), he's vulnerable only for raiton jutsus. Want more? Then you get it. He has, like 90 years of experience in fight... Just try to beat that with some Deidara or Hidan. Not to mention that he also is very intelligent, I guess has brain on Kakashi's level. Oh, maybe you want him to run out of chakra? Good luck with that, I bet he can't run out as he spammed with monstrous jutsus all the time.

The heck is Kakuzu doing here in 9th position, he should be at least in 4th place, behind Pain (he is the leader and with 6 bodies), Tobi (it is very hard to land a blow on him) and Itachi (he is just cool). Kakuzu is the strongest akatsuki member after the others three that I mentioned.

Kakuzu should be up way higher, he has 5 hearts and you can't beat that. He's way more powerrful than zetsu and hidan. Hidan got taken out by shikamaru.

He has five lives and can have five deadly forms! What else?

10 Akasuna no Sasori

Seriously? Sasori deserves a better rank. Sasori is one of the best members. Yeah, he got killed by Sakura, but he didn't get killed like that. He let himself die, he didn't fight back and that's a fact - even Chiyo said so. Besides, he beat Kankuro. He's very skilled. He killed the 3rd Kazekage and made him his puppet. I bet he would've been able to beat at least half of the Akatsuki. Sasori's a win, he has to get a better rank guys.

Wow sasori is the most hottest red head with orange eyes..

. Sasori has the same properties with me...
"I hate to wait or makes others wait"

Sasori is acool akatsuki not to mention he has iron sand, hiruko and the strongest kazekage.

The Contenders
11 Ramen Guy

Although he was one of the original Akatsuki members, and was kicked out after one arc because apparently Deidara hated ramen, the Ramen Guy is totally strong. I remember when the Ramen Guy fought with Naruto and Lee. Naruto was like "I hate menma in my ramen! " And the Ramen Guy was all like, "AWW HELL NO! YOU DUNT GO DISSIN MY RAMEN! " And the Ramen Guy used a summoning JUTSU to summon a giant piece of pork to crush Naruto.
I swear the Ramen Guy would have killed Naruto if Rock Lee didn't learn Drunken four gates and sliced the pork piece in mid air. But the Ramen Guy didn't get much on screen time other than that due to Zetsu arriving to take over the fight while the Ramen Guy went with Kabuto to help him on his Reanimation Jutsu. He did use his Ultimate Hot Noodle Barrage to almost defeat Kisame in that one flashback in the 10th arc, but it was filler, so not many people saw it. I hope we can get a full arc about the Ramen guy in Boruto.

Remember that time when he was the only survivor of the Uchiha clan? He was the only one strong enough to defeat Itachi. Then, he killed Obito just by saying "Meinu," and killed Madara the next day by using his mangekyou rinnesharinbyakugan

Remember when he was able to defeat Nagato just by looking at him? He can beat anyone just by breathing.

He is the first to accept naruto. This man was the most underrated character of all naruto.

12 Uchiha Madara - Tobi

Dude he's Obito not Madara so whoever hates this guy, understand that he is the best akatsuki member ever. He is the last member to survive until Madara takes out his eye in one of the last Mangas (I guess). Or this guy cannot be normally attacked by. You either need to do some eye jutsu OR go inside his eye and attack him (like how Kakashi did it). I truly need to say this guy's SO unbeatable and I guess he becomes good in the laaast part before he dies.

Because he was around in the elder days and he created the nine tailed fox. AND! he is the strongest ninja besides naruto

He should be first! What the heck? 123#

He has a lit costume

13 Zetsu Zetsu is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

He has an interesting personality and is one of the best spies I've ever seen. To see him below a guy who life is based on ramen is a little insane. He can multiply and can kill you in a second if he so wished. Besides although we don't see him fight as much as the others he still plays a key role. Life isn't just about getting the job done by fighting, you need someone to spy on the enemy and provide valuable information. Not to mention he just looks awesome.

How can you beat 100,000 Zetsu's I know you can't.

14 Orochimaru Orochimaru is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

He is a man with a great great view on a great great mission.

He is ugly!,he is foolish!,he is a reptile!,he is insane!

Ugly died too

15 Yahiko

Konan thinks so too!

16 Uchiha Sasuke
17 Filthy Frank

Most underrated character in the entire naruto universe.. I mean come on! He has the b0ssengan, and can summon pink demons that are even stronger than itachi! He should be the main antagonist.

Remember the episode when he used the art-of-the-hidden-dank to dank all over naruto?! it's a good thing that boi came and used the tricycle jutsu!

He's so bad ass! remember that episode when he used the dank-memes jutsu to dank all over naruto?!?!

Best Akatsuki ever. He is so underrated

18 Neji Hyyuga

Neji is TOTALLY the best akatsuki member! Remember the time that he and his partner Tenten single hadedly captured Han the five tails jinjuriki by a juuken and a sword in the ass? Yeah... that was totally epic.

Who the hell put this guy on the list he's not even there in the akatsuki.

The best Akastuki member ever. Remember when he single-handedly killed every single shinobi in the world? That was good...

19 Konohamaru Konohamaru is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

This guy is the best shinobi of all time, this ass can turn himself into a seductive women then slap your ass with a ball of pure energy. With the strongest sensei in the leaf to train him (ibisu) this MAN can show you a good time and some tough lovin. He was easily the strongest member.

Best Akatsuki of all time. Uses the Infinite Rinnesharibyakugan to defeat all of the Legendary Sannin, can kill Madara by just looking at him, and can destroy the entire multiverse by just saying the word "Kuso." Way underrated in my opinion. Konohamaru 4 lyfe

20 Suigetsu
21 Naruto Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Jeez, some of these characters on the list aren't even members of the Akatsuki...

After seeing jiraiya and tsunade I thought let him put on this list too, after all he is sasuke gay bro.. Lolz

22 Kakashi Kakashi Hatake is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. In the story, Kakashi is the teacher of Team 7, consisting of the series' primary characters, Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno.
