Top 10 Fastest Naruto Characters

The Top Ten
1 Naruto Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

People will 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.

I'll make my argument very simple. We're talking about fastest character and in terms of speed, Naruto bests everyone. He basically is as fast or faster then his father Minato by dodging A's punch as max speed and power, mine you he physically ran and dodged it so he had to move the actual distance, where as Minato had to teleport. So in the same time it took Minato to teleport, Naruto moved a greater distance in the same time frame.

I swear the only reason I'm commenting on minato's is because Naruto's no even on the list-which is stupid. I don't know how long ago this poll was made, but in case you haven't been following the series, Naruto is currently faster than a yellow-flash. He is 4GS faster than the speed of light! He dodged Raikage's punch and deflected 5 biju bombs at once. Minato only deflected one when the kyuubi attacked konoha. Naruto will run circles around Minato-this-I'm sorry-is an inaccurate list that should be updated.

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, who's 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.

Naruto dodged the raikage's fastest punch possible who, by the way, is said to be the fastest person alive. This makes him the actual fastest alive as no one has done this since Minato. Now to compare Naruto and Minato, Naruto's is actual speed while Minato rips a hole through space-time. While he is no doubt fast on his own, I mean he is a kage for more than the rasengan and hiraishin, the hiraishin is a teleportation technique and fastest, which is the main topic of this list, is a measure of speed. Let me reiterate, teleportation is not the same thing as speed.

2 Minato Namikaze (Fourth Hokage) 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, in front of his face, while gai was unleashing the night guy. This shows he is hell 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, who's 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.

He dodged Raikage's punch and deflected 5 biju bombs at once. Minato only deflected one when the kyuubi attacked konoha. Naruto will run circles around Minato-this-I'm sorry-is an inaccurate list that should be updated.

Minato's extensive and creative use of Tobirama's Flying Thunder God, and his incredible natural quickness and reflexes make him the fastest shinobi of all time. In terms of conventional speed, Naruto, in Six Paths Sage Mode is indeed faster than his father. However, Naruto cannot teleport to marked locations and kunai across a battlefield like Minato can. Naruto is fast, but not instantaneous.

3 Sasuke Uchiha 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 then Minato can react, to teleport away.

Even then Madara could easily beat Sasuke and Naruto (which was at that point faster then 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, which was moving in the same direction, barely able to react to sasukes 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.

Let's get to it!

Minato Namikaze (or the Fourth Hokage... or the Yellow Flash... or whatever)...

He uses teleportation so that's not actual speed. So in that case, Fourth Raikage A or Itachi Uchiha should be faster than him.

Even if you count Hiraishin Jutsu, even then Minato could not blitz "Juubi" Madara Uchiha. But Sasuke-sama blitzed Juubi Madara... TWICE!

So, Sasuke is the fastest... (he is either as fast as Naruto or faster)

Sasuke's rinnegan helps him to teleport very fast! just like minato...So in my opinion Sasuke should be in 2 number racking place...moreover I don't think that Naruto should be 2 in this list...because he shows his speed very less often...which proves that sasuke is a lot faster that Naruto!

Just one detail I remember during the battle against photo and the ten tails, Naruto said he had to go into chakra mode to match sasukes speed and sasuke needed to go into his EMS to match Narutos chakra level... Therefore sasuke is faster than Naruto and the fastest character in the show... Naruto maybe strongest but sasuke is fastest

4 Might Guy 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 surpass Naruto. 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 on short distances as well.

Okay realize Gai doesn't take off his leg weights, when lee took them off he was unbelievably fast, guy I think it fastest and strongest ninja. Think now Gai takes of his weights which probably weight more than lee, opens the 7th gate he can liter destroy anything. With leg weights on he runs train against anything be it Kisame, Obito, or Madara he put great blows on them all.

Just in case any of you haven't been keeping up with the manga. After Gai opened the eighth gate, he was far faster then Madara who at this point in the series is sage of six paths mode, Naruto, Minato, rock lee, and every other person on this list including Minato. And even the first Hokage said that Gai with the eighth gate open is faster than anything he has ever seen.

Honestly Gai should be first because of one huge thing. When fighting Madara after Gai Opens the eight gate, Minato says he is faster than anything he has ever seen. Even then Gai hadn't taken off his leg weights because of some code of honour or something. I can't even imagine how fast he would be if he took off the weights.

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

No, Sasuke is way faster than Lee now... And Sasuke is not quick... I mean he is... But he also has copied Lee's speed with his Sharingan in just a mere month... And Lee had to take years and years to master that speed... Lee admits it himself in the chuunin exams and envies Sasuke... And now Sasuke is just like a blur vision... He is really fast... Although.. You couldn't see anything when the Yellow Flash moved... But who can we compare with the fastest person in the world? But Sasuke is faster than Lee... And Lee is damn fast too.. !

Lee is Guy's student, and the current era in the shinbone world is when 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 are having quite biased beliefs due to not being able to articulate themselves.

I would like to point out that Drunk Rock Lee literally dodged lightning from a few feat away as a teenager. This is without opening any gates or taking his weights off. This means by opening just 1 gate he is about x10 times faster then lightning with his weights still on. Lee likely at least rival Raikage's speed as an adult.

I can't really remember which one of the fastest. Either Lee or Guy.. I mean, come on! Did you not watch the Chuunin exams? When he took off his weights. WOOSH! He is gone. (Well, I think it was in the Chuunin exams? ) But you couldn't even see him! And when he opens the Gates, he also gets quicker.

6 Madara Uchiha 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 Minatos 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 he obtains the ten tails, he is faster than anyone before. He has power that rivals the sage of six paths. (Naruto chapter 668)

Madara Uchiha dodged minato's rasengan and roundhouse kicked his ass...

Sage mode fast enough to rip Kakashi's eye out and defend against Guy

7 Obito Uchiha Obito Uchiha 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.

Of course he's fast. Can keep up and much faster with his jinchuuriki form than Naruto in KM and Sasuke even Kakashi is nothing to him.

Obito bends space and time with Kamui, allowing him to move faster than almost any other character. His natural speed is similarly impressive, making him the one of the fastest ninja in the Narutoverse.

Having the power kamui makes him able to teleport to any location without even marking it, plus he was able to keep up with nine tails chakra form naruto and still be on top.

Kanji is ultimately faster then any other dimensional ability in that obito can go from one side of the planet to the other no matter what day or time in a second even minsto can't replicate that without prep and obito a reflexes are enough to pass through a level 1 raikage at point blank range. Obito is at the least number 3 or 4 in reality. These polls are popularity contests though lol

8 A (Fourth Raikage)
9 Shisui Uchiha 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.

Dude. People call him shisui of teleportation because when he moves he basically teleports (not saying he. Does)

10 Hashirama Senju 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.

Hashirama senju is so cute and he a good character and is tobirama senju a cute character to?

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

Shisui should be first!

The Contenders
11 Tobirama Senju Tobirama Senju Tobirama Senju is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

He was officially named the fasted Shinobi of his time! And as a Senju, he had huge preserves of chakra, larger than Minato’s. They should be tied for first, maybe he should in first.

The 2nd Hokage 25th on this list?! Man, he was the one who created the Flying Thunder God Technique! Combined with his natural speed and reflexes, he was hailed as the fastest shinobi of all time! Read the manga fools!

Tobirama should be Top 5. In the naruto Wiki he is called the fastest ninja in his era. I highly doubt that Obito (current 11), Itachi (current 10), Kakashi (9) are/were really even close to his speed.

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 is unclear if he meant as an Edo (where his total ability is less than 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 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 and Naruto and Raikage!

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

He is faster than your thoughts... I think if there's a completion he can speed up than Minato too..

13 Kakashi Hatake 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 minatos 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 ninja.

Um not anti kakashi but he is plenty slow compared to other characters like Naruto,minato,madara,sasuke, and hai too. But is hand signs are quite quick...

With 2 mangekyo sharingan he had faster kamui to warp faster and reappear in different spots.

14 A (Third Raikage) A (Third Raikage)
15 Kakuzu Kakuzu Kakuzu is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Just see episode 80

16 Izuna Uchiha Izuna Uchiha
17 Deidara 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.
18 Hiruzen Sarutobi Hiruzen Sarutobi Hiruzen Sarutobi is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
19 Neji Hyūga 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.

The guy is a beast. He was better than rock lee in everything they did like seriously

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

What is Nagato doing on this list? He's extremely powerful but first of all, his Pain's are not really that fast, and to top it off, his legs are busted, so he's not fast, and if anything, he can't move by himself. Thanks a lot Hanzo. HANZO...

21 Kiba Inuzuka 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 Sage of the Six Paths 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.

He's called god for a reason.

He deserves higher place

23 Kaguya Otsutsuki Kaguya Otsutsuki Kaguya Otsutsuki is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Kaguya in the 19th slot? Wow, considering about the fact that she stopped an entire war, casted 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 that Tobi's Sharingan followed his movement, but his body wasn't fast enough to react.

24 Haku Yuki Haku Yuki

He's not the fastest but he does have good speed with his ice mirrors technique. We saw very little of Haku because of his death but I wonder what more we could have seen had he lived. What other techniques he might have had possibly hidden potential.

Haku should be at around lightspeed, being able to project images of himself behind him without clones, much like Itachi. Base speed, he is not that fast, but with "Crystal Ice Mirrors" He should be able to hit the top ten.

Haku in terms of short distance speed hands down is the one of the fastest shinobi of all time. Moving at a speed that no other shinobi can boast 'the speed of light'. He kinda holds the land speed record.

In the real world, it is impossible to move the speed of light. Think about that for a minute. Haku's power wouldn't be possible.

25 Orochimaru 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.
