Top 10 Best Naruto Shippuden Fights

The Top Ten
1 Nagato/Pain vs Naruto Uzumaki

I honestly vote this fight the best as it showed a lot of emotion and also a lot of action. The time when Naruto jumps in front of Tsunade to save her from one Pain and then tells her to rest and drink tea shows how confident he was. I really loved this as it showed Naruto's love for his sensei Jiraiya and tells us to respect our sensei.

Easily the best in the series. From the actual invasion, to Naruto's badass Sage mode entrance, to Hinata's confession and Naruto's rage, to Minato's reveal to Naruto, and finally to Naruto's confrontation with the Nagato, everything is epic and emotionally satisfying.

Village gets destroyed, Naruto comes and beats pain, gets a love confession from Hinata, meets his father and gets recognized by the village. The best character arc Naruto could have gotten and possibly the best arc of the anime.

Hmm, let's see. Showing off Naruto's Sage Mode, giving Hinata a chance to shine, the change in animation, Naruto losing his grip on sanity before Minato saves him, and a good conclusion. Yep, this fight is pretty awesome.

2 Sasuke Uchiha vs Itachi Uchiha

Everything about this fight was awesome. It was breathtaking, action-packed, and emotional. It showed the relationship between the brothers along with intricate planning in the battle. The whole first part of the battle was entirely genjutsu and wasn't overwhelmed with meaningless chatter like almost all the other battles. It also answered a lot of spoken and unspoken questions, giving us a sense of satisfaction and even developing the characters in the midst of the battle. It showed us a perfectly good reason for Itachi losing, and White Zetsu asked the questions we did, while Black Zetsu answered them. It affected Sasuke's character even more than Orochimaru's fight against him, which caused him to leave Konoha. It was also relevant to future arcs and not just the current one. It well surpasses Naruto v Pain, which was epic but not as unique, original, or emotional as this one. I have many more reasons, but I made my point. If I ramble any longer, people will think I'm over ...more

The fight was emotional but epic as well. It revealed lots of questions that have been asked. It was inspiring and touching and I was sad about Itachi's death though. But it was great to see my 2 favourite characters fight and Sasuke stopped hating Itachi after the fight too. Though he got another ambition..

I can't vote for any other fight. This fight is what we expected all from part 1. It starts with genjutsu and even the watcher thinks is in one. Then they move on to ninjutsu (Katon, Kirin) and Itachi has a Susanoo. An excellent fight, that I have read and watched numerous times. + it is really emotional. "Fated battle between the uchiha brothers". My two favorite characters got to fight each other...
Also, the fight Naruto vs Sasuke (the final one) is epic as well.

Pain vs Naruto very deservedly earns its place as no. 1. Personally I loved this fight the best. This was the fight id been waiting for in the original Naruto series. I never thought the series would make it far enough for the fight to actually happen, but it did...

3 Kakashi vs Obito

This is a square off between one of the most notorious international criminal mastermind vs a stereotypical boring tragic hero who happens to be the reason why Obito had to die because he saved this stupid moron's sorry ass and defeat his ideals because he failed being a team leader at some point – had to be the most emotional moment for Obito. He not only had to face his former comrade but he let it go out with his single punch for breaking his promise to him.

I feel bad for Kakashi because he was never an effective character to begin with. Not only was he the reason why the mission was a failure and why he was being so stubborn for not listening to his team when he was being lectured on it by their sensei beforehand. His father never gave a secs thought on suicide and had to leave him behind just because he was ostracized by the very citizen whom he swore to protect his life; the same village that Kakashi swore to protect had vilified the image of him and used him as a ...more

This fight was a real raw ninja fight, just a 1v1, and probably one of the best drawn in the series. It was staged well too as there were moments of each person getting the upper hand, and it wasn't just a test of who had the more powerful jutsu, but who was more quick witted, thought on their feet, and easily the one I couldn't take my eyes off of when it happened.

This is probably the greatest fight there was in Naruto Shippuden. It wasn't drawn out too long, everything was paced easily and the animation was spot on between the flashbacks and the present. I don't get how this isn't in the top 5.

This was an epic, emotionally fight. I literally get chills every time I watch it. The music and the animation just make it a masterpiece. By far one of the most epic fights for me.

4 Jiraiya vs Nagato/Pain

Very awesome fight seeing the full colors of jiraiya's prowess. I think it was very cool being able to see jiraiya fight harder than he ever has. He has lived for a very long time and seeing fight till the very end brought tears to my eyes. I very much loved this fight and believe it to be one of the best fights in Naruto.

P.S. I find it the 2nd most emotional fight. 1st being itachi vs. sasuke, but nevertheless it is truly amazing

Best awesome fight. But sad ending.. Made me cry. Jiraiya the legend in the series gone down. It is my favourite battle. As Jiraiya wanted to know the truth even when he had a chance to escape

It was awesome and epic, killed by his own apprentice, saddest death, drowning into deep ocean, fought really hard till lose his hand. A great scene of fight�" dark, rainy, silent, amegakure is adorable. An awesome past, his journey, with his apprentices.

Jiraiya's fight to the death is a million times better than Sakura vs Sasori.

5 Naruto vs Sasuke

This should be at least top 3! If we're talking all of the naruto vs sasuke fights (including their final fight) then this should be #1 no question. This is the fight between the main character followed throughout the story and his main rival/friend sasuke which is the main conflict in the story line. All the training each of them experience ultimately is to beat each other and this is their showdown. How does this not get #1 or at the very least top 3!

This fight clearly defines the whole series into this last fight, with good Tai jutsu, epic susanoo and nine tails mode with awesome animation worked into it, with necessary flashbacks and a nice touch with the Rasengan by shinobi allies! Best fight Ever!

The anime's extra part of the battle was so much better than the manga. Who would've expected to use Sasuke to use Kirin (the move where he controls the lightning from the sky to hit the opponent) when he was down and still?

The most common fights of the series, all ending with a Chidori and Rasengan Clash! Ends with a bang! Also, this was the final fight in the Naruto and the Naruto Shippuden series. Every single fight affects the story.

6 Kakashi & Shikamaru vs Hidan & Kakuzu

(SPOILER AT END) Watching Shikamaru fight is always awesome, because he's one of the show's weakest fighters in terms of just raw physical ability, but uses his intelligence and analytical skills to beat much stronger foes. This fight blew my mind. PLUS there was the emotional payoff of avenging (SPOILER ALERT) Asuma's death. Not only beat the evil Hidan, but he's forced to suffer forever in his immortality. Like, damn.

If We're talking about the best "Shippuden" Fight, then I'll assume the best fight in the ANIME, which includes the animation factor. Naruto vs. Pain would be the best fight in PART II of the manga, but in the anime, its animations ruined everything. And Kakashi and Shikamaru vs. Hidan and Kakuzu's animations were unmatched.

After Shikamaru got "his" blood taken from Hidan, with any other character, I would've said "they're dead. " But the whole time, while I was watching Shika, I knew that he had some awesome plan thought out. No way would the same move work on him twice. And I was right. Shikamaru is awesome, and I think this is his best fight yet.

Shikamaru's thinking and deductive abilities are worth of calling him the most intelligent character (if not to mention Itachi) whose fightings are interesting to watch.

7 Kakashi vs Pain

When they met, Pain was courteous and Kakashi was rude. The results of their fight: Pain 1, Kakashi 0

Should powers of pain and make you respect Jiraiya who took 6 pains at once.

8 Sakura Haruno & Chiyo vs Sasori

This was not only a long fight (8 episodes) but it was also sad and interesting fight. It shows flashbacks of Sasori's childhood, which made him who he is now. It always makes me feel like crying. Poor Sasori. Nobody should have to go through that. Sasori does die, but it would be incorrect to say that Sakura defeated him because she didn't. He chose to die. Chiyo even says so. In fact, Sasori would have killed Sakura for sure if it wasn't for Chiyo being there to aid her. RIP Sasori. You definitely made Naruto worth watching.

Still one of the coolest fights this series has. It was like the 1st Big battle of the show. Also it gave us a great look into the backstory of an Akatsuki member (other than Itachi). Not to mention how, like many people already said, it's seemingly the longest fight Shippuden has to offer. However, it didn't feel draged on. Honestly speaking, the clash of Sasori and Chiyo/Sakura was fully entertaining. And its not even that its such an important battle it was just pit so well with perfect amount of discussion, action, flashbacks, and even switching to the other scenes of what else was happening during the battle.

No other fight in the whole Naruto series has been as good as this. Eight episodes of pure awesomeness. Chiyo fights her beloved grandson who is now an Akatsuki member, the fourth strongest Akatsuki (according to Kishimoto), and almost immortal. It's a fight with a really dark and creepy mood due to the human puppets and the way Sasori feels proud about collecting people's bodies for his use. All together with the surprise that Sasori is a puppet himself, making him an almost invincible foe. The backstory and conclusion are the cherry on top of the cake. The way Sasori made the puppets of his parents, and he used to make them hug him to feel loved, was the only memory that Sasori had to feel human and not entirely a mass murderer.

And, in a moment of epicness that was just the way he died. On an eternal hug as his parent's puppets (used by Chiyo) stabbed him in the heart, side to side of Sasori. Sasori could have dodged the last attack (as Chiyo said), but he didn't, showing ...more

Sasori vs Sakura and Chiyo is one of the most underrated fights in the series. The fight made them look like fighting ninja, not gods. This was one of the smartest battles of Shippuden. It was complex, with a lot of components, and was executed with finesse.

9 Tobi/Madara Uchiha vs Konan

A badass fight. I think that it was a bit too short though. Konan is awesome. I think that she could take on any of the guys in the akatsuki.
I also like the Naruto vs orochimaru fight. It looks so realistic with out any asspull jutsus. I wish I could see a real fight between orochimaru and itachi that lasts more than 3 seconds!

This was amazing... Konan really proved herself outdid her counterparts... Obito really should have died...

I thought that obito fought konan not madara and tobi is not a real person!

Music was awesome! Konan also best female in series!

10 Hashirama vs Madara

My god this should be in top ten, like the previous guy said, those two are gods!

The battle between possibly the two most powerful ninjas.

Historically the first fight between gods(since Ashura and Indra). of course, the wow factor of Hashirama's 1000 hands.

The Contenders
11 Naruto, Kakashi, Guy, The 9 Tails, and Sasuke vs Madara & Obito/Tobi

This was the best battle by far. I think it is the best fight because the leaf tries to face madara and cannot seem to defeat him. Madara also kills Naruto and sasuke which in the end they kick ass with 6 paths power but I think this fight is awesome!

Hey this fight must be second.
And where is Naruto, Sasuke, Obito, Sakura & Kakashi vs Black Zetsu & Kaguya!
Madara vs Naruto &Sasuke!

Kaguya fight was best and must be first and Madara vs Naruto and Sasuke should be 3rd.
these fights were very nice. Though the second had many fillers, but if put together was a good fight. Those who didn't see them, see them now.
Naruto vs Sasuke final battle was also very nice.

This will no doubt be number one once all episdoes are complete and in English. Plot twists and its literally an 80 episode fight. The wait up to this made the fight even better. It's so great because you truly don't know how its gonna end.

Such an intense and long battle! The twists and storylines are so complex and ever evolving! Number 1 or at least tied with Naruto Vs Pain. But come on, the 4 hokage reanimated?! Too legit!

12 Sasuke vs Deidara and Tobi

A showcase for Deidara with his incomparable skills and striking appearance. A pity that it ended so badly.

That look on Deidara's face!

13 Gaara vs Lee

This was the fight that made Rock Lee my favorite character; and now that I think about it, this fight had been in the making for the entire arc: Rock Lee, the comic relief who somehow beat Sasuke and has no ninjutsu or genjutsu, against Gaara, the guy who kills without a second thought, effortlessly, and has never been hurt. This fight was a story by itself. The tragic ending, with Lee unconscious and broken but still willing to fight, being saved by his sensei and Gaara simply walking away, even though he might have stripped Lee of his shinobi career, his DREAM, brought more than one person, myself included, to tears. Simply a work of art that deserves to be at least in the top three.

As said previously, this fight is iconic. Not only is the animation badass, the emotional juxtaposition and dynamic of the combatants made the fight interesting. In one corner there is Rock Lee; someone with no Ninjustu capabilities and relies only on his hands, feet, and perseverance to overwhelm his foes. In the other there is Gaara; a kid raised with a blood thirsty demon tanooki inside of him. Neither of these characters were going to give up the fight, that is what made this the TRUE first all out fight in the anime and that is what makes this fight iconic.

I think this fight is beautiful for a very interesting reason. The two showcase very different sides of the spectrum, even in how they fight. Gaara completely relies on Ninjutsu, while Lee completely relies on Taijutsu. And their personalities are exact opposites. The length of the fight worked perfectly due to the combination of Lee's backstory, which is something later fights in the series lack. The most beautiful part is how the fight doesn't follow the Shonen trope of Lee pulverizing Gaara just because of willpower and all that stuff. It ends with a harsh look at reality, and sets up Gaara as a dangerous opponent. Lee couldn't land a hit, and that was really what worked.

Overall, the best fights in the series were in the Chuunin Exams, and I think this one certainly deserves higher than the fights above it. This fight had duality at its finest, and didn't rely on showcasing a new power every two seconds for the impact.

This was the fight that made me a hardcore Naruto fan, and cemented Lee as my second favorite character. The tense atmosphere that hangs over each moment, the "Hell Yeah" moment when Lee succeeds in hitting Gaara, the tragedy of the ending, is all why this fight deserves to be in the top 3.

14 Asuma Sarutobi vs Hidan

People seem to forget about the great emotions behind this fight, and the animations in this fight was quite cool, the most emotional and thrilling fight in my opinion!

15 Minato vs Tobi & Kyuubi

This should be top 3 cause the back story is as o sad and it created the foundation of. Naruto's character

That moment when minato threw his kunai and it went through tobi and then suddenly minato teleported to the kunai to rasengan him from behind... this scene shows what a badass minato is

Underrated just because minato gave his life.

This got to be in the top 10!

16 Kisame vs Killer Bee
17 Sasuke & Itachi vs Kabuto

Loved when the brother fought beside each other. Wanted more but instead Itachi stayed his final godbyes to Sasuke!

Fight was awesome! Just seeing sasuke and itachi fighting together takes it on a different level.
Ps- the ending made me cry...

Best fight so far

18 5 Kage vs Madara Uchiha

This was truly the fight that showed how powerful mascara truly is. And the fact The he wasn't even going full power until the very end made this guy even crazier! Top 5 at least

This battle is awesome, and it shows that even though the Hidden Villages have had their struggels, the Kage can work together, and put up an awesome fight.

Madara looked immortal and stronger than even the likes of pain and that susano o though my god it can cut of mountains in a blink of an eye!

19 Might Guy Gate of Death vs Madara Uchiha 10 Tails Jinchuuriki

This battle is very short and straightforward by Naruto standards, having a distinctly different feeling too. The Inner Gates technique was introduced as early as during the chunin exams arc, and here we finally saw it full power, with Kakashi admitting himself weaker than his rival and Gaara watching with eyes wide open, understanding how close he was to be killed in that famous fight. Guy was used as a comic relief as much as a fearsome jonin, but seeing him sport one last winning smile, sacrificing his life with no second thoughts and proceeding to brutalize the god Madara has become was easily one of the most epic moments of Naruto.

The battle was cheapened a bit by Naruto saving Guy and Madara regenerating the fatal wounds in a second. That added nothing to the story.

He doesn't have a some kind of special eye or some deus ex machina power up from some one. He is the pure form of dedication and hard working. He is the most powerful character of naruto.

Most emotional and inspirational fight.It is too hard to get criticized by all people and take them as SUPPORT.Must be number 1.Because it defines a NORMAL human's power of Hard Work and Dedication.

Best fight of whole shippuden and the most underrated one..I just wanted the creator to be a little more creative and gave might guy justice..I think he should have made gate of death more if a person open all 8 gates no jutsu will work on him..that would have been so satisfying to watch..Even naruto fanboys would compliment that fight..

20 Gaara vs. Deidara

Deidara is a love at 1st sight for me, and in this fight he is a real showstopper. Flying on his clay birds, mobilizing clay creatures that explode on command, elusive, and clever. I'm pleased that he was victorious over Gaara, and that Deidara survived this battle. A most exciting fighter.

Great fight! Gaara's sand shield will block Deidara's C3 Ohako! Even though some of the village people hated him, Gaara put up a good fight while protecting the village from giant nukes! And in the end, he still used his chakra and put effort to erase the sand covering the village.

Exciting aerial battle. Deidara swift and elusive, with clay creatures and explosions, and Gaara commanding the sand!

21 Guy vs Kisame
22 Sasuke vs Danzo

Amazing battle! But they introduced a jutsu in the fight which should've been done before. Also, Sasuke's Susano'o was amazing with the upgrade and the final part where Sasuke and Danzo stab each other Danzo says "I've still got one eye left. I win." WRONG! It turns out that Sasuke's genjutsu landed on him to think that he still had another chance to use Izanagi (without using Shisui's eye). So cool when they had revealed that! They were huffing and puffing after that!

This is one of the most clever fights in the series. This fight proves that there is at least one guy who is as intelligent as Shikamaru: Sasuke. I waited for this fight for long since Itachi died. This one basically established Sasuke as a power to be reckoned with and killed one of the filthy characters of the show: Danzo.

Key battle between the man who SPOILER ALERT... forced itachi to kill the uchiha clan vs the survivor

Awesome skills! Danzo show what he can do!

23 Sasuke Uchiha vs Deidara

The fight was ok, but I have always hoped Deidara would kill Sasuke's ugly and overrated ass. I hate him with a passion.

Probably one of the most exciting fights and its filled with action. Deidera is probably one of my favorite villains

Best last words of both Naruto and Naruto Shippuden (Not including reanimation)

24 Might Guy vs Madara Uchiha

The most epic battle of Fourth Shinobi world war!...The only battle with Madara in the war in whuch he actually his ribs cracked! Man! Might guy seriously kicked Madara's ass...and Madara actually accepted the fact! lolz!

Might guy beat the crap out of Madara Uchiha with the 8th gates gate of death the night guy

25 Naruto Uzumaki vs Kakuzu

Naruto matures during this fight and masters an s rank nin-Justu. Overall crazy fight considering everyone's reactions when he kicks kakuzu's 100 year old ass

All naruto really does in this fight is use around 9 shadow clones and used Rasen-shuriken twice.

I rooted for Kakuzu. Didn't give a hoot about Naruto.

Bro you the man
