Top 10 Fastest Naruto Characters

Speed is one of the most coveted abilities in the Naruto-verse. From instantaneous teleportation to bursts of lightning-like movement, a ninja's raw speed can make or break a fight.

So, who are those blurs zipping through the world of Naruto? There are some obvious contenders, but plenty of others might surprise you. Help settle the score - which of these swift shinobi deserves the title of fastest in Naruto?
The Top Ten
1 Naruto Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

People often go with Minato, but the truth is he's not the fastest. When it comes to travel speed, Minato is the fastest because of his teleportation techniques. But when it comes to actual physical speed, Naruto is the fastest. Throughout the series, Naruto shows incredible feats of speed, not reaction time, not teleportation, just plain physical speed. Minato can travel greater areas faster because he can teleport, Sasuke has better reaction time because of his Sharingan, but in terms of physical speed, Naruto is the fastest.

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

Ok, so the Raikage is said to be as fast as lightning, which would be around Mach 2700 or so. Minato was able to react to that, dodging with teleportation (which isn't actual moving speed but reaction speed). Madara was able to blitz Minato, which means he moves a good deal faster than Minato can react to teleport away.

Even then, Madara could easily beat Sasuke and Naruto (who was at that point faster than Raikage, before his Kurama Mode or whatever one may call it) to the ground effortlessly.

After getting the power-up from Hagoromo, Sasuke was able to blitz Madara, who was moving in the same direction, barely able to react to Sasuke's speed with Kamui.

While Sasuke doesn't need a Bijuu power-up to have the same speed as Naruto before the Hagoromo buff, which makes him, in my opinion, the fastest character in Naruto.

3 Minato Namikaze (Fourth Hokage) Minato Namikaze was the fourth Hokage of Village Hidden in the Leafs and the man responsible for sealing the nine-tailed demon fox inside Naruto Uzumaki when he was born. Doing so cost him his life, and before dying he asked that the villagers not see Naruto as the monster within him, instead wanting... read more

Minato was able to warp away Ten Tail Madara's Truth Seeker Orbs, right in front of his face, while Gai was unleashing the Night Guy. This shows he is a lot faster than Eight Gates Gai. Ten Tails Madara couldn't dodge the Night Guy as it was bending space-time, while Minato whizzed past Eight Gates Guy, removing the Truth Seeker Orbs in the process. This proves Minato is faster than both Six Paths Madara and Eight Gates Gai.

Minato Namikaze is second on the list. Why? Even though he sports one of the fastest, probably the fastest teleportation jutsu ever created, Naruto, his son, is faster because of his Bijuu form. In the first form, he was fast enough to dodge the Raikage, whose Lightning Armour is second only to the Yellow Flash. Then, he was compared to the Yellow Flash. Now, he has received another speed boost. Come on, people. He's second.

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

Gai is probably the fastest ninja in Naruto. His true speed was shown when he fought Madara. When he opened all the eight gates, I think his speed even surpassed Naruto's. We have to remember that running is a physical activity, so in the end, specialized taijutsu users who have trained their bodies a lot more than usual ninjas will have an advantage. Sure, you can be fast by using abilities similar to Sasuke's, but in the long term, a taijutsu user can keep up with his speed and can probably be faster over short distances as well.

5 Obito Uchiha Obito Uchiha, also known by his alias Tobi, 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.

This guy's reaction speed is underrated. Obito easily grabbed Minato's wrist when he salshed him with his kunai and he was able to keep up his footspeed in their duel. It was Minato however who resorted to FTG everytime he was caught and Obito just a reminder, was only 14 at that time, he had proven to be much more skilled than his sensei who didn't taught them about everything. Obito even managed to indurectly killed him and his wife, so his plan went out as it is. This guy's totally different and was entirely on another level, nothing can tell me otherwise. He was even more powerful than his comrade (a wannabe half discounted cheap Uchiha and always will be til the end lol)

6 Madara Uchiha Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn't agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village,... read more

He is faster than everyone on this list, though arguably not faster than Minato because of Minato's level of mastery considering the Flying Rajin. That said, he was able to react to both Minato and Tobirama, and it really depends on which type of speed you count with. But, if you consider speed such as speed depending on combat, I think that he easily takes this one home.

Even though the Fourth Hokage is thought to be the fastest, once Madara obtains the Ten Tails, he becomes faster than anyone before. He has power that rivals the Sage of Six Paths. (Naruto chapter 668)

7 Rock Lee Rock Lee is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Lee is Guy's student, and in the current era of the shinobi world, Naruto is an adult, making Lee an adult as well. Don't forget that Lee often out-trains Guy after the time-skip to Shippuuden, already making himself stronger and faster than his sensei. Pre-Shippuuden, he dropped his ankle weights in the Chūnin exams, and they created an explosion of rock about 15 feet tall when he was fighting Gaara. (I'm saying 15 feet tall because the explosion was about three times taller than Lee, but only reached up to his head because he was standing on a rock about ten feet high.) If Lee's leg weights weigh that much and he can move at supersonic speed without them, what would happen if he dropped his leg weights and went Eight Gates? He would only lose to Naruto in Six Paths Sage Mode by a few feet if they raced. I also think that a lot of the people saying Sasuke is the fastest have quite biased beliefs due to not being able to articulate themselves.

8 Hashirama Senju Hashirama Senju is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. He was a legendary shinobi who led the Senju clan prior to and after forming Konohagakure with his rival, Madara Uchiha. After the founding of Konoha, he became the First Hokage.

First Hokage, and had all tailed beasts under his control, come on!

9 Shisui Uchiha Shisui Uchiha is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Shisui became famous for his mastery of the Body Flicker, which allowed him to move at supersonic speeds, faster than the eye can see.

Fastest Body Flicker ever. I think that counts for something. Maybe he's not the fastest runner on the list by a long shot, but he can out-shunshin a runner any day!

The Body Flicker Technique is considered one of the fastest. He should be higher up on the list.

10 A (Fourth Raikage)
The Contenders
11 Tobirama Senju Tobirama Senju is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Top 5 guaranteed, should only be behind Minato if not even tied. Stated to be the fastest of his era, which included (but is not limited to) MS Madara, MS Izuna, Hashirama, the 1st & 2nd Kages of each village, etc.

Hiraishin is instant, so he can teleport as "fast" as Minato. He demonstrated all-around speed skills by snatching away a bijuu bomb before Minato could grab it off his own body.

He did say that Minato's Shunshin was better than his, but it is unclear if he meant as an Edo (where his total ability is less than when alive) or in general.

Finally, he showed extreme speed in planting tags all over Junchuuriki Obito without using Hiraishin or Shunshin, and did so in pretty much an instant.

Read the manga, people.

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

Well, his hand techniques are so fast you can't comprehend or possibly even see them! Plus, he has the illusions and the power to create a primordial space-time loop.

Itachi can move faster than the Sharingan can see, and can react to even Minato, Naruto, and Raikage!

This is the stupidest thing ever... Hell yeah, Itachi should be ranked in the top 5 at least... This is so damn stupid!

13 A (Third Raikage)
14 Izuna Uchiha
15 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.
16 Hiruzen Sarutobi Hiruzen Sarutobi is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
17 Kakuzu Kakuzu is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
18 Kakashi Hatake 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.

He's very fast. Even Itachi commented on his speed. Plus, Minato's speed comes from his Flying Thunder God move, which Kakashi knows. Oh, and he's able to use his speed to get out of nearly any move. And not sure if anyone saw the Kakashi and Guy race, but even Lee said Kakashi won the race.

Kakashi is really fast, but not faster than Guy. In the anime, it implies that Guy is faster. Guy is also a master of taijutsu, which makes him faster than many other ninjas.

With two Mangekyo Sharingan, he had faster Kamui to warp faster and reappear in different spots.

19 Jiraiya Jiraiya is a fictional character in the Naruto anime and manga series created by Masashi Kishimoto. Introduced in the series' first part, he was a student of Third Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi and one of the three "Legendary Sannin" along with Orochimaru and Lady Tsunade, his former teammates.

Jiraiya, by far, with his special Sage Jutsu and mastery of infiltrating without being noticed.

20 Neji Hyūga

You all forgot how fast Neji is. His body rotates super fast when he does Rotation. His hand moves super fast when he does 128 Palms and 64 Palms. And he also runs super fast. He should be in 5th or 6th place.

The guy is a beast. He was better than Rock Lee in everything they did, like seriously.

21 Kiba Inuzuka

I believe he's the third fastest out of the rookies (slightly behind Rock Lee and Neji), so he definitely deserves to be placed higher.

22 Nagato Nagato (Also known by his alias "Pain") is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
23 Kaguya Ōtsutsuki Kaguya Otsutsuki is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Kaguya in the 19th slot? Wow, considering the fact that she stopped an entire war, cast the Infinite Tsukuyomi once before, and was the mother of Hagoromo and Hamura Otsutsuki. Man, she even teleported Team 7 and Obito to a new dimension without Obito noticing, even with his Mangekyo Sharingan. Besides, there was a brief moment in the fight between Tobi and Minato when Minato performed the Flying Raijin, Level 2, and Tobi's Sharingan followed his movement, but his body wasn't fast enough to react.

24 Sage of the Six Paths Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki (大筒木ハゴロモ, Ōtsutsuki Hagoromo), known to the world at large as the Sage of Six Paths (六道仙人, Rikudō Sennin, English TV: The Sage of the Six Paths), was a legendary god-like figure who founded Ninshū, which led to the creation of the ninja world. He was the... read more

Sage of the Six Paths should be higher than this. He gave Naruto and Sasuke his power.

25 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.
