The Top Ten
1 Itachi Uchiha Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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...

People are forgetting how totally HOT Itachi was I mean even when he was reanimated he was a cutie and a sweet heart to his lil brother plus he once again tried his best to save the shinobi world...Itachi is definitely on my Hero List along with many others from the series. But seriously Itachi is one of the most powerful, genuine, kind, cute, caring, loving, smart, and way more things basically in short he's for sure one of my fave characters! And I'm glad he's number one!

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.

Undoubtedly he's the most awesome and remarkable character in Naruto. He have the most fate-changing influences among the shinobi world. His legacy forever be helpful towards maintaining peace for all. Itachi is the Leaf's secret hero and dark savior. And by far the most hottest and coolest devilishly handsome male character I know. He's just the PERFECT one who could resists him? I guess the answer is none.

2 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.

I just love his personality, how he's badass and his love gor art. I thought there was something real about his love for it. How he incorperated his art into his jutsus were just amazing!

At first at the Gara arc I saw him as some weird physco with mouths on his hands. That grossed me out but he seemed smart in my opinion. He was thinking ahead while fightining and that is how he beat Gara.

His relationship with Tobi was quite funny too. :)

His death broke my heart though. But I felt that he left the message to be yourself no matter what and stand up for what you love and believe in. I admire him for that even though he can be a bit crazy...

And his past wasnt so sad. He was evil just cause he wanted to be. Oh and his hate for the Uchiha

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

One of the few characters with a complete past, present and future.
The whole development was seen through to the end.
He was uber strong, had a tragic past, had an epic fight, had cool quotes, had an emotional death, helped move the story along and then achieved his goal, becoming immortal. Not just any old kind of immortal, an artistic type of immortal. What was his passion again? That's right - it was art. He's immortal through his creations.
I won't go into sex appeal... >_>

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.

He is sooo cute! He has such an sweet look and such soft features that I thought he was an girl. I love the way he fights and talk. I feel impressed because he had such an incredible past and is still looking forward. Sakura is my most hated character because she killed Sasori and because of other reasons. He Has such an tiny frame and that looks so cute on him.

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.

4 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.

Nagato Pein has a sad, traumatised past, and yet he still sought to create a world where war no longer existed, and peace was the order of the world. But after Yahiko's death, it broke him. He was so damaged by the pain and loss he had experienced, that his heart turned black, and thus took the Akatsuki into a new era of evil.

5 Kisame Hoshigaki Kisame Hoshigaki 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.

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?!

How can you not like him? He's Blue! And he can turn into a super shark.

He is really loyal to the point where Tobi trusted him with the information that he (spoiler) is Obito, and he would rather kill himself than give up information

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

His fights were one of the best choreographed ones in the whole series. It wasnt just about who could make the biggest explosion. His character was extremely entertaining and a breath of fresh air. He wasn't stoic trying to be scary he was loud, cocky and annoying something that a normal person could relate to more. I really think he is underappreciated because he didn't have a stupid sob story.

Reasons why Hidan is awesome: 1. He is immortal! 2. His cocky and confident attitude along with a potty mouth make him hilarious. 3. He pretends like he doesn't care about something when he actually does (example: Kakuzu or Jashinism. ) 4. His scythe is bad ass. 5. He is kind of insane. 6. I could keep going, but I don't think all of my reasons would fit.

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.

Konan was the only female member of the Akatsuki and managed to prove her worth and strength against Obito.
She was extremely powerful and strong willed and will do anything to act as a pillar for the bridge to peace.

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?

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

Konan should be the top 5 on the list. She is consider as god's angel by the hidden rain village's people she is really really strong

8 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.

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.

He's adorable and sweet. Not to mention innocent! Anybody would fall for him. Obviously not S-Ranked criminals because they were working with a retart. But hey, Tobi is cute. But I hate how killed two very important people to me... *sniff* at least DON'T BETRAY MADARA

As well as Kakuzu and Hidam and all other akatsuku members remember how Konan should have killed him bit because of his cheater Izanagi which should eve exist he survived. Enough said- he sucks from Konan and that's all

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

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

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.

Are you kidding me, He is insane not only is he insanely powerful and has all five elements down. He has to be killed 5 TIMES! He can turn his lives into masks that act as separate opponents. He is also obviously more skilled than any living non-akatsuki ninja just for the fact he's 91 and survived a fight against the first hokage. He has more experience than any one in the organization and is also pretty smart. (Not recklessly running into battle like *cough* Hidan *couch*)

I love most of the akatsuki members but Kakuzu doesn't get shown enough love! He is a boss! His partnership with Hidan is probably the best pairing in the Akatsuki. They work so well together and are so funny. Kakuzu is instrumental to the Akatsuki's ambitions and has one of the more unique fighting styles. HE's JUST DOPE. Enough said.

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.

10 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.

Zetsu is so Awesome Because he has two personalities and a venus fly trap over his body.

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

The Contenders
11 Madara Uchiha Madara Uchiha is a fictional manga and anime character in the Naruto series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He appears for the first time in "Part II" of the manga and the Shippuden anime adaptation, as a major villain.

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's smarter faster and more tactical than itachi just think about it

12 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

13 Sasuke Uchiha

Sasuke is cool

Sasuke is awesome and badass,even though he's really arrogant.

14 Yahiko

Yahiko should be higher he was the founder & creator of the Akatsuki anyway that should give him extra points... Plus he's so brave, smart, and cool too not to mention his humour, cuteness, and power. As a leader he was great but as a friend to his comrades he was even better. That's why he should be higher.

Konan thinks so too!

15 Suigetsu Hōzuki

Suigetsu is so cute, I love his little tooth that pokes out when he closes his mouth and the way he is always winding up karin

16 Kabuto Yakushi

He's the only Akatsuki member that has sage mode! Not only he's a snake, but he's a dragon! Not to mention he created all the reanimated shinobi from the Fourth Great Ninja War, which includes all the Jinchuuriki, Akatsuki Members, Madara Uchiha, etc.

He's strong. For example, he has incredible medical skills. He can even summon Manda. Other than that, he's just plain out awesome.

Kabuto is not in the Akatsuki.

17 Sakura Haruno Sakura Haruno is the main heroine of the series "Naruto Shonen Jump!" and Naruto Shippuden. She is the only female ninja of Team Seven. Her family consists of her mother, Mebuki Haruno and her father Kizashi Haruno. Her clan is likely not very well known around Konoha and up until "Boruto: Naruto Next ...read more.

I liked it when Sakura used the Byakusharingan to defeat Naruto and save the Hidden Sand Village. It was also nice when she battled Killer Bee and Pain during the Chunin exams. Remember when she fought against Madara and used her mangekyou ShadowFireChidori Style Just to win. I also remember when she used the reverse harem justu to win against Sasuke (because he is Sasu-gay). Then we saw that she was really a Jinchuriki all along and had the 56 tailed fox. Her marriage with Lee was unforgettable. I am really happy that she is now Hokage. She even defeated the god, Konohamaru.

I love how she used her Rasengan eye to put the world into an Infinite Kameheha and killed Ichiraku. She is the best meme out there!

18 Jugo Jugo is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
19 Rock Lee Rock Lee is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
20 Neji Hyuga

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...

21 Karin
22 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.

Best Akatsuki of all time.

He is one of the legendary sannin, he trained Naruto into an awesome character, he died by the hands of pein/nagato his first subordnates besides fourth and is ultimately awesome

23 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

Naruto is for sure the best Akatzuki member. Better then Kakashi and Gaara.

24 Hinata Hyuga Hinata Hyuga is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.
