Top 10 Most Powerful Naruto Characters

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

While he starts small (like, teeny tiny small), by the time the Fourth Shinobi World War ends, he's the single most powerful shinobi that ever lived, with the exception of Kaguya, Hamura and Hagoromo Otsutsuki of course, since those three are just god tier, literally. Never gave up, always ventured on. Whichever way you look at it, Naruto is the strongest character in the series. And while it's hinted that Sasuke is equal to Naruto in power, it's a load of bull. Come on people. No matter what you say, anyone with a pair of eyes and sense can clearly see that Naruto is more powerful of the two. Sasuke even admits it himself and shows signs of jealousy throughout the manga. I could start a rant but eh, gotta keep it brief.

Naruto is one of the strongest ninja alive along maybe sasuke, madara, and tobi. In four-tailed form he destroyed a fraction of a forest with a wave of a hand. In sage mode he took down someone that annihilated konoha. He broke out of a small moon. In six-tailed form he breaths fire and makes rocks seem like asteroids. His speed is more or the same as his father's, who is as fast as a yellow-flash, making him at the same speed has light Itself! In Tailed Beast Mode he's plenty faster than that, literally meaning faster than the speed of light! He took down 5 biju alone in this mode and 1 tailed beast ball equalized with their's combined. He broke Tobi's mask. Despite Rikudo's power, you gotta gig credit 2 someone faster than the speed of light.

Naruto was a born, he has no parents, always hated, feared, monster and never had any friends... Never gave up from his life. He kept on working hard and he will never give up and he will be a Hokage one day. At the beginning he was trying to achieve the goal of being acknowledged by everyone in his village due to the fact that he was a Jinchuriki. After training really hard everyday, Naruto achieves his goal and saves his village, becoming equals with his best friend and rival. Look at him now, he has a 'Sage of Six Paths' mode. He get stronger and stronger. He have a lots of friends. In my opinion he is the best anime character ever!

Okay. Let's see here. In the series it's state all 9 beast tails create the tens correct me if I'm wrong.

Naruto has unique chorka on his own and great stamina, and he never give up. He care more for the people, then his self, he is very selfless. He over comes obstacles and fighting for everyone even though they was poorly to him in the beginning of the series, he has heart of gold.

And the 9 tails second mode

He has sage mode, and half of the sage of six path.

Almost of all: his the main character, so eventually he gonna surpassed everyone in the show.

Don't get me wrong I like Sasuke He is an awesome character him and Naruto are my favorite. I like both of them the same. They are both well thought out characters and both really powerful. It's a great story.

To be honest there is always gonna be show or character more powerful and stronger. It's a Fantasy show!

Like one day their probably gonna make a character stronger then superman. ...more

2 Sage of 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 son of Princess Kaguya Ōtsutsuki‎‎ and alongside his fraternal twin brother, Hamura, were the first to be born with the same powerful chakra as their mother. Together, he and his brother defeated their mother, who had become the terrifying Ten-Tails, in battle and sealed the powerful beast within himself, thus making Hagoromo the first jinchūriki.

Okay, so I don't get why this guy isn't on the top. I mean he's got the Rinnegan and mastery over it to the extent that he tamed and sealed the Juubi within himself. Plus, he's the only Rinnegan user to be able to create the moon. A friendly reminder. Rinnegan abilities include: attractive and repulsive force manipulation, animal summoning, soul stealing, chakra absorption w/ mind reading, control of the King of Hell and the power over life and death. Not to mention the potential to master all elemental ninjutsu (I guess he was a master already but who knows? ). His mastery over all the abilities eclipse those of Nagato and even Madara. I wouldn't include Obito since he hasn't been seen to use the Rinnegan abilities as well as Nagato has. Just saying.

So6P could go against everyone on this list and leave each one in a body bag... He was the father of Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha. That should ring some bells in your damn head...

He was even considered GOD! The one that defeated and broke apart the great Ten Tailed Jubi into Nine other smaller beasts. Naruto has nothing against the REAL Kami!

Hell... I even believe the Sage of Six Paths can whoop Goku and Vegeta!

The Sage of Six paths is friends with the 9 tails and it will do anything he wants basically. He also beat the 10 tailed beast and put it in the god damn moon, therefore he's the strongest, Naruto may control the 9 tails but I think the guy that put the 10 tails in the moon could beat the nine tails and Naruto.

Hagoromo was not only the ten-tails jinchuriki, but had: two rinnegan, a rinne-sharingan (due to the ten-tails), six paths sage mode and enough chakra to fight Kaguya for an extended period of time (without his rinne-sharingan), seal the ten-tails inside of himself and still had enough left to split the nine tails into NINE LIVING BEINGS (the tailed beasts). Not to mention how he slit his chakra between Sasuke and Naruto in order to make them the two strongest (non ten-tails enhanced) non Otsusuki ever.

3 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, a conflict which ended in Madara's death.

The Sage of the Six paths claimed that Madara's power was close and even rivaled his own and that he was fast approaching his mother Kaguya's power. This was before he retrieved his second eye, significantly increasing his insane power and then he unlocked the third eye just like Kaguya did, something the Sage of the Six paths did not achieve. He even kept up with Naruto and Sasuke after they gained the Sage's power. He should be second on the list below Kaguya in raw power and in my opinion, he's even stronger as he grew up in war torn times which honed his tactical skills and battles senses. Kaguya never did and we saw her coming to Black Zetsu for ideas. He also procured Hashirama's power, who was hailed as God of Shinobi. Come on guys this isn't hard.

Uchiha Madara is the 2nd coming of the Sage of the Six Paths! Founder of the Sharingan, Mangekyou Sharingan and Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Wielder of the feared Wood Release, Possessor of the fabled Rinnegan being the only one able to truly awaken it other than the Sage. He can control Kurama with his eyes. He can bring meteorites into the Earth's atmosphere. He survived the fight against Hashirama and still continued to live for another 4 generations. He can take on the 5 Kage on his own. His Susano'o is complete (it has ' legs) and can carve mountains with one wave of its sword. Uchiha Madara blocks bijuudamas with his gunbai. He's unstoppable.

First off, let me say this: If madara possess the rinnegan, eternal mangekyou sharingan, and the Susanoo final form, why is he number FOUR on this list? The only reason Naruto is number one, is because people like him the best and because he's the main character. Besides, for all you people saying he was scared of Itachi, well that's not true either. The only reason he had the akatsuki capture biju's instead of doing it himself was because he wanted to keep a low profile. Capturing all of the jinchuriki's himself would have drawn a lot of attention, and since he fooled almost everyone into thinking that he was dead, that wouldn't have been a smart idea. So there you have it.

I can't believe people were actually saying that the only reason Madara beat the five kage was because of hashirama's face. Like, do yall understand how dumb you sound? Before he came back to life, Madara had Perfect Sharingan, Susanoo, top tier combat skills, AND was the reincarnation of Indra. He was literally the ONLY person who could even come close to Hashirama, The GOD OF SHINOBI. Yall are just bitter that he got more votes than you're faves and are leaving hate comments bc you're pathetic losers.

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

Along with being incredibly talented, Itachi is mentally strong. He managed to do what no other character in the entire anime would be able to in his situation, and truly endured nearly any problems he had. He never thought about himself, and while he was away a lot, Itachi was a loving older brother and son. He isn't emotionless- he's introverted, and while he's awkward around people, it doesn't hinder his strength in the slightest since he still had people he wanted to protect. Itachi had the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan and all of it's benefits, along with an agile body, and a sharp, unbiased mind. Even with his situation, he was kind and loving and wicked cool when he fought. He's a character that you don't want to be on the bad side of, and his allegiance is clear and honorable.

Without Itachi, Naruto wouldn't be the same popular series it is now. He was an amazing from the age of 5. He was ahead of all the kids his age, but he wasn't cocky. He could put anyone under a genjutsu for three days straight. He's smarter than Shikamaru, stronger than the Legendary Sannin, and kinder than any anime character I know. He's my favorite character in anime. I used to hate him, but when I saw how much he did for Konoha, I realized that he made a fool of everyone. He was cunning, cold, and deceiving, but kind, cool, and strong. When I saw him die, I cried every single time I saw Itachi after that. And he did everything from the shadows. He was a great big brother, a kind lover, a lovely son, and an awesome fighter. If he didn't die, he would become a hokage that would be better than Naruto himself!

Itachi was a one of a kind ninja had the best Genjutsu, most powerful defense and offence (susanoo), and had incredible speed when it came to hand sighns, the only thing he lacked was his stamina. As you all now he had a sickness and that's what made his life stamina low, and he tried to take various medicines just enough to stay alive and die by the hands of sasuke. Other than that if itachi hadn't had the sickness he would've never die or be that weak but it was his little brother so he had to sacrafice himself for his brother for what he did to the clan. And one last thing, all of you people out there saying uchiha madara is the strongest ninja of all, you guys have to read the manga more thoroughly even uchiha madara said "That Itachi... even in death he never ceases to amaze me. " At that time itachi died but he implanted Amaterasu into sasuke just so sasuke doesn't meet madara.

Let's be real, I'm sure he's less powerful than the sage of the six paths, but we haven't ever seen that guy. And Naruto? Really? Naruto got his ass kicked by this guy. A lot. He's fast, has enough stamina to use Amaterasu tsukuyomi and Susanoo when he's on his death bed holding his own against sasuke who is a decent opponent, he destroyed his clan, he planned ahead to the point that he fixed his impure world resurrection. And as far as a mix of things, he comes out on top of everyone. That is why he had to die, if he didn't the manga would've just been over too quickly because Itachi is a bad ass.

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.

It took the whole shinobi world alliance to bring down this guy. Think Kakashi would have a chance against him? He's EXTREMELY POWERFUL and only was killed by Kaguya. Anyone who says that Kakashi is powerful than him is plain RETARD and Obito Haters. They're jealous and envious of Obito's capabilities. If not for Obito lending his powers to Bakashi he would be that 'scarecrow' on the battlefield scaring Itachi's crows. And no, Itachi traumatized the hell outta him! Lol. It's because of Obito he gained some spotlight. Credit to the One and Only GOAT of the series! OBITO UCHIHA. All hail the POWERFUL and HOT Uchiha clan!

Obito's power as the Juubi jinchuuriki is off the charts. He's extremely powerful even if the transformation is incomplete. Can understand why some people claimed Kakashi could 'beat' him. Like, really? Obito is holding back every time. He even gave Naruto in km and Sauke with his susanoo a hard time. Hell yeah, he can beat those two. Folded Kakashi like he was nothing sort of like a fly. He's not that invincible that's for sure. He only lost to Naruto's tnj. But his feat along with his power is truly unimaginable.

Obito actually defied Madara multiple times, and probably would've been able to beat him. He was too much for even Minato to handle, and as for Naruto and Sasuke, they pulled the ten tails out of him with like... everyone's help. Obito actually gave in, realized his mistakes and quit. If he had both eternal mongyekyo sharinghan, he'd be invisible, with his awesome kamui shuriken throwing Susanoo. I think he should at least be top three. Even without his sage and ten tail power he was really strong, already better than Kakashi and Itachi. He was emotional unstable pretty much his whole life though and made hasty decisions. At the age of fourteen he murdered a bunch of rain anbu, took on Minato, and brought out the nine tails. Not to mention he was very smart and cunning and had tons of stamina, just a late bloomer.

He may not live up to the strength of Hashirama Senju or Madara Uchiha, but was a major power house through out the series. He was able to tame the Nine Tails, and practically destroy the village. He fooled the whole shinobi world into war, believing that he was the real Madara Uchiha. He took on two Tailed Beast jinjuriki, plus two skilled Leaf ninjas at once, and still gave a decent fight. He tricked Madara and became the 10 tails jinjuriki, and ever since that, he been kicking everyones ass. Not only is this guy strong, but intelligent to, he tricked sasuke, kisame and nagato into doing his dirty work, plus out smarted everyone of his opponents during the war and in general. This guy deserves at least in the top 2 or 3, considering his transformation into a jinjuriki.

6 Sasuke Uchiha

Sasuke has been able to fight opponents and keep his own while exhausted, battered and bruised. I mean he defeated 1000 shinobi without getting much injuries. He has great intelligence which helps him in battles and making strategies. He has the blood of the Uchiha granting him the gift of the sharingan, which later is upgraded to Rinnegan. This allows him to create genjustu and can see more advanced than the regular eye. There are much more abilities that come with this gift but I don't want to search it all up. Not only that but he awakened his sharingan at age 7, although not being able to recall it. He also learned the fireball jutsu and Kakashi's chidori at an early stage. He fought many strong opponents and beat one of the akatsuki. And his speed is unbelievable. From what I know his speed is intant, like teleporting but I don't know how far he can go since people say he can only teleport to a certain distance. He is great with swords and can use both his left and right hand. ...more

I just want to settle the arguement of Sasuke or Naruto being stronger...
According to Sasuke is definitely stronger than Naruto... Some people say that Naruto is stronger because he has Asura's Chakra and Moreover Kurama's chakra and Sage mode..
But according to me Sasuke does not use the full powers of his Rinnegan...And I do think that no one can match the power of the Six Paths... In their last battle Sasuke did not use his Rinnegan to fight against Naruto.. Moreover Sasuke has possess the Mangekyo Sharingan with Complete Body Susanoo And the Mighty Flames of Amaterasu.. If Naruto does fight with all his power he still could not win and If Sasuke still had Orochimaru's Cursed Seal.. I bet Naruto would have been dead

Sasuke is an amazing Ninja. Face it, if your WHOLE village was murdered by your brother, and you suffered through it all, and still were alive and strong, you're pretty amazing. Yeah, Naruto had to deal with being hated on, but so did Sasuke, plus his village slaughter. In my eyes, Sasuke is a strong character, both physically, mentally, and emotionally. Plus he's just a bad ass...

Sasuke is much stronger than some of the top on this page. He can match Naruto, so I personally think he is stronger than Minato, and he should also be at the top of the list with Naruto. Sasuke is strong, and proved himself in battle. He also defeated Itachi; which shows that even if Itachi is strong physically. He is still weak in mind.

7 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.

He's not the son of the Sage of 6 Paths, he's the reincarnation.

He has the strongest overall strength from all the characters we know so far, 1 = Kaguya, 2 = Sage of 6 Paths, 3 & 4 would be Ashura and Indra (Sage's sons) and then Hashirama.

He beat Madara while going up against the 9 tails. He tamed 7 tailed beasts and willingly gave their power to other villages to keep the balance of the world. Madara couldn't defeat him with an Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. His sage mode is insanely over powering --> summons a Buddha statue with a 1000 arms, twice the size of a tailed beast and Perfect Susan'oo.

Can control tailed beasts. Has immense chakra reserves, and doesn't need to follow orders of the person who revives him using edo tensei (strong enough to override commands), is the Reincarnation of Ashura, the son with the most chakra of the 2 sons of the Sage of 6 Paths.

Earth style, Water style and the legendary Wood Style. Deep Forest Emergence, Deep Forest ...more

Are you nuts. This guy was said to be the strongest ninja of his time (before madara who is supposedly third on this list). He beat madara hands down at the valley of the end. It was even said that hashirama senju almost oreven killed him during their fight. Madara even went to the extent of summoning the nine tails but it was to no avail. The first hokage whipped his butt. Even madara confessed that he was not as strong as the first. He wast madara's rival at all. He was his superior. His wood release jutsu is flawless.

Contrary to popular belief not the son of the sage of the six paths but still amazingly powerful. He was the only person able to do wood style, every 1 else needed HIS dna to use it! He was the only person madara respected and madara got sharingan, then mangekyou and even mangekyou sharingan to beat hashirama, not to mention he even brought the kyuubi for hashirama but he still lost! Also hashirama's wood style is so powerful he stopped a tail beast ball from the nine tails; a feat nearly impossible. Let's not forget that he is a sage. I can't understand how madara is higher than him when he nearly killed madara!

He's the God of Shinobi, with very powerful chakra and even enhanced with his flawless senjutsu ability, plus he can heal himself without even weaving hand signs (his medical ninjutsu is up above Tsunade who's said to be the best medic ninja). He didn't run out of chakra after fighting Madara for days. Even Madara and Orochimaru wanted his power so bad that they stole and experimented on his cell to gain his rare ability. And the reason Madara could overpower his Edo tensei form was because Madara had stolen his ability. He's obviously a very strong one after his achestor Rikudo.

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

Kaguya is really strong. She is mother of chakra, so yes she is the first to use chakra. She is also the ten-tails, have the rinne-sharingan, byakugan, absorb chakra of the ones she touched, super fast, have all five nature transformations, can regenerate and create life, have the black zetsu, and she can pull out something similar to kimimaro's bone, from her hand. She is also beautiful, and she could really easily defeat Madara. Not to mention Itachi, nor Hashirama or someone else. And if Obito and Kakashi didn't show up, Naruto and Sasuke would be done for! Yes, she is also from the Otsutsuki Clan, so she's a goddess. Wow, someone stronger than the main character(s)? Yes, totally. I'm just spitting facts, you can see from a trusted internet website, or watch the series. I love Kaguya, she's really strong and is beautiful too. She doesn't deserve to be this low. You can also check out the other comments that she's really strong and other.

Looks like no one reads manga. If you do, you would vote for Kaguya. She is mother of Sage of the six paths and he said about her that she's stronger than him. And he was the strongest known shinobi from Naruto universe. She has incredibly powerful chakra, more powerful than Madara had in his Juubi-bijuu form. She can change a battlefield by her dimensional technic and she can walk through the dimensions, so practicly no one can harm her. She just can not be defeated by a single character in Naruto. I can't believe that she isn't on the top of this list. Like really, she can't be defeated by no one. 10 strongest characters would maybe defeat her, but together.

Why is she 9th? She's the strongest character in all of Naruto, hands down. She was mother of the Sage of the Six Paths, who even though he is at the top of this list, claimed that Kaguya was stronger than even himself. She can look at any technique and master it. She's basically God. She just by looking at you can force you to do her will. This shouldn't be a question of who's stronger, but how much stronger she is compared to the Sage of Six Paths.

That guy who's number 1 on the list claims that Kaguya is stronger. Even though she was defeated by Naruto and Sasuke, she was not even close to being killed. Plus, she wasn't nearly as strong as she was when she was young. If Naruto and Sasuke went up against that, they'd be dead before they could blink and she'd be able to do whatever she wants to the world (or worlds, I guess, since she can literally open a portal to anywhere with minimal effort).

9 Minato Namikaze 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 him to be viewed as a hero, a request ignored by the villagers. Naruto Shippuden reveals that Naruto is the son of Minato, born to Kushina Uzumaki. In his youth Minato, along with two other unknown Genin, was a student of Jiraiya. Prior to becoming Hokage, he was also the sensei of Kakashi Hatake, Obito Uchiha, and Rin Nohara. Minato is said to be one of the greatest ninja the Hidden Leaf has ever ...read more.

Logically through my mind Minato arguably the strongest because her intelligence and strength as a ninja who is not to be descendents of the strongest as Uzumaki, Uchiha, Senju and other arguably lain. Minato great to be able to analyze the current contest in a very short time for example when Minato fight with Tobi, Minato is able to analyze three things at a time as player medals save the village, Naruto and his wife and counter tobi. Minato also save kushina while it is in academics as a student without the help and information rival.

Minato, is often stated as a S-Class nin. He has flee on sight orders during the 3rd Shinobi World War. During the war the 4th Raikage has said that Minato was a better shinobi than anyone else. He's the 4th Hokage meaning he has Kage level abilities. He is known as the best seal master to exist and he was trained by Jirayia the Toad Sannin who was the previous seal master. With his intelligence he perfected the Thunder God Jutsu, gaining the moniker "Konoha's Yellow Flash". During the Kyuubi attack he sealed half of the Kyuubi's chakra inside of him and when he was resurrected, he utilised the Kyuubi's chakra to terrifying extents. That would mean (even without the fact he was an Edo Tensei) he would nearly have the same amount of chakra as his son Naruto. We know that he could use Sage mode and (probably) could become a perfect Sage. He could also use Tailed Beast Mode and could summon a Kurama like Naruto. He created the Rasengan, while not perfect, was used perfectly with the ...more

I has to be at least top 4 because if you read manga he knows how to turn into 9 tails mode because of the other half. He was fast already but if you thought he was fast before you don't know nothing. He also knows how to turn sage just like Naruto but he doesn't really use it in a battle only in training plus he was taught by jiraiya (sorry for spelling) and he made rasagan and he also teloported a tail beast bomb. Not to mention he also saved his son saved his village beat Tobi. If he didn't have a son naryto he might of still been alive. He only died because if Naruto. He also saved Naruto again when Naruto was going to let the ninetails out. First is the past then in the future he rally is awesome. Just in case you haven't noticed but he also the 4 homage for a reason (duh).

Ok... Let's be honest, right now. Minato surpassed the creator of the flying thunder God (Tobirama) and is considered the fastest shinobi to ever live and he created a few (super powerful, if I may add) jutsu of his own... There's no way Itachi is stronger than Minato... Even with his sasuno (Which will only be a matter of time for Minato to figure out how to defeat). I bet he can even kill itachi way befor he summons his sasuno... I'd have to say My list would be: Sage of six paths, Hashirama, Madara, Minato, Tobi, Itachi, Naruto, Sasuke, Pain and than killer bee... #KES

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

Nagato could never have defeated naruto in the shape he was in during their main fight. He was too weak and ill. The only reason naruto got to talk to him was simply because he was able to defeat his other peins, that's what intrigued him, nothing else. I agree with this list almost exactly and itachi and naruto and everyone above pein is definitely stronger than him hands down. Even in his prime after he was reincarnated was defeated by itachi, bee, and naruto. And mainly only itachi and naruto, bee was losing his fight. Plus the second itachi came back into the fight it was over instantly. I'm sorry pein is a great ninja in the manga, but he definitely belongs around top 10

For the guy who says that Itachi "defeated" nagato. Remember that Nagato was conscious while making his attacks and thus was giving instructions to both naruto and itachi to where to move while making said attacks so they could deflect them. Without this I'm pretty sure things woudve turned badly for, at least, one of them. In what universe Itachi defeated nagato? More like they handled him with a slight advantage and full intel. Without this I'm sure he wouldve killed at least one of them. In short. Itachi doesn't posses the stamina to handle three enemies of that calibre whereas Nagato does. Much less to attack the hidden lead village and destroy it completely.

Kakashi? Pain can EASILY beat him just like he did in the manga. If Sasuke has trouble beating Kakashi then its obvious Pain can knock him out as well. The fourth may be able to take out an army... But if its said that Naruto has surpassed Yondaime, then Pain can beat him as well. Madara too, the 6 paths of pain are too much for even Madara. Hell, Itachi even avoids this one. Whoever say's Naruto can beat Pain is an utter moron, sure he could win, with the rage that Hinata HELPED him get from the Kyuubi.

Pain IS GOD!

Nobody can rival the power of the Rinnegan. Whoever has it is automatically one of the strongest. For example, Kakashi is about as strong as Kisame or Kakuzu normally. If Kakashi had Rinnegan, he could probably beat EMS Sasuke, Naruto, and Sakura all at the same time. Pain is unrivaled with the exception of Edo Madara and Tobi. Who both also have Rinnegan.

The Contenders
11 Hamura Otsutsuki

I'm shocked! 29th? You must be joking?
He is Kaguya's son and brother of Sage of six paths (Hagoromo Otsutsuki). He and his brother defeated Kaguya together. He and Sage are almost equal and here he is in 29th place. Hemust be in top 3 at least!

He's supposed to be in the same tier as the sage of the six paths what is this?!?

He is already on the list. His name is Hamura Otsutsuki. Currently in 29th place.

Dude, this guy has the same power level as the sage of the six paths what

12 Hiruzen Sarutobi Hiruzen Sarutobi is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

An old guy holding off Hashirama Senju, Tobirama Senju, and Orochimaru at the same time. Kills off two and a half of them, at the ripe old age of 69. Enma the monkey king laments his fight being pathetic compared to his younger days.

In Shippuden episode 215, a (presumably) teenage Hiruzen tells everyone (in front of the 2nd hokage, Tobirama, and Danzo), "I may not look it, but I'm stronger than any of you here, " and that he wouldn't die during battle with 20 highly-skilled ninja. Tobirama chose to sacrifice himself instead.

Called one of the strongest shinobi in history, not of "their era" or of "their generation. " In ALL of Narutoverse history. You see the latter two terms applied to Sasuke (who, if you've been keeping up with the story, is known to be stronger than Itachi), Orochimaru, the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Hokage of Konoha, and countless others. That's why he is revered as "God of the Shinobi. "

The eye tricks like EMS and Rinnegan have perhaps greater power ...more

That's not what the Kishimoto meant we he was the strongest hokage in his Prime, he meant that during his time, not currently. Right now, Naruto is the strongest Hokage, followed by Hashirama.



If you were to make a list of strongest Hokage here it is:

1. Naruto Uzumaki
2. Hashirama Senju
3. Tobirama Senju
4. Hiruzen Sarutobi
5. Minato Namikaze
6. Tsunade Senju
7. Kakashi Hatake

Hope this helps and stops salty comments.

It is said that he is the most powerful of the Hokage and Kage of his era, those being Hashirama Tobirama 3rd Raikage et.C.

Should be higher than Hashirama and Minato, because he is also a God of Shinobi and was apparently stongest Hokage ever. Back in his prime though.
So definitely should be top ten.

13 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.

How can the teacher of the main protagonist be so down on ranking. Jiraiya is the ultimate teacher, even in his underdeveloped sage mode he took down few of the pains (Imagine his extent in his full sage mode). His summons are very powerful & robust, can manipulate nature chakra etc. He is one of the characters whose powers can be unrivaled by any other current Kages. Without him Naruto wouldn't be at the rank he is now. He is the one the Sage legends & one hell of a pervert.

When Itachi Uchiha admits that this guy would kill both him and Kisame should they fight him, it is pretty much that he is easily the strongest ninja, if you are ready to overlook the overpowered BS that Madara was fed. Pain also said that Jiraiya would have defeated him if he knew pain's secret and the only reason he died was because he wanted to confirm his suspician. He could have easily have gotten away and lived to fight another day. Also Pain already knew all about Jiraiya on account of being his student.

Jiraiya can beat all the others. He is stated as one of the legendary sannins capable of beating pain, one s rank and kage level shinobi even whithout sage mode and whit sage mode he breacks all the barriers. Pain only defeated him because he didn't new the secret; under these conditions even the current madara would lose, and even whitout an arm he was capable of beating one of the pain bodies, and he could scape any time if wanted to. He was the master of the fourth, and stated by nagato as a master piece. He was the only one in Naruto capable of beating pain and he knew that, even tobi said that pain was the strongest in akatsuki and jiraiya could have beated pain. Pain said that if the fight was longer jiraiya would win. So a nina that as now natural abilites and can beat the rinnegan is just the best.

Jiraiya is by far the most liked character in Naruto. He should be in the top ten without a doubt. he's sage mode is only rivaled by the first hokage. He knows as many Jutsus as kakashi. Physical power is on par with the rakage. Itachi said he could not beat him even with kisamas help. Took on the all the pains and was kicking there ass by himself and could have won the fight. Trained the yellow flash and was trained by the third the professor. This list is just stupid

14 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.

I'm going for Kakashi Hatake even though I know he's not the strongest but most talented ever... He made his own jutsu and knows over 1000 jutsu. First, he has the mangekyo Sharingan and can use the kamui.2nd He is the son of the white fang, the pupil of the yellow flash (4th HOKAGE) and the teacher of one of the strongest shinobi alive which are Naruto, sakura, and sasuke.3rd He is one of the most famous shinobi alive, He is the copy ninja Kakashi. Kakashi is A character you need to know in order to watch Naruto...

Kakashi is SUPER powerful. People often think of him as "get in use raikiri" get out" but he has over 1,000 jutsus! All those fire techniques, and water techniques that some of the others on this list use? Kakashi probably knows them. Also, about his chakra reserves: He has half as much as Naruto, who has tremendous chakra reserves. So he has average or above average chakra reserves, and his excellent chakra control makes up even more!

Kakashi is one of the most important characters in naruto history, only by that it gives an answer why to be included in the strongest ninjas. I believe he must be in the top 10 because he is so wise and smart. I believe those who say that sometimes it's not the strongest who wins but the smartest had a point!

Best character in Naruto. He created his own jutsu and taught it to Sasuke. He can hold a fight with anyone. Most diverse and intersting character development and back story. Taught one of the most important lesson to Naruto which he took it to heart and shaped his way of thinking: friendship. Most famous throughout the ninja world. And many more reasons.

15 Indra Otsutsuki

Son of the Sage Of Six Paths, not much more needs to be said for this powerhouse. He holds the sharingan, one of the three revered dojutsu. He also has a susanoo, and is the first Uchiha. He could hold his own with any of the others, and most likely succeed in defeating them. Google more facts if you need any more evidence.

He have all the power of uchiha considering he is the son of the sage of the six paths

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

He created 3 of the best and most useful jutsu that have played and important role in the entire series, he killed izuna uchiha. He was even about to kill madara (WITH his eternal mangekyou sharingan) untill hashirama stopped him! He can perform some of the most complicated water style justu with 1 hand sign and became the 2nd hokage. He also created the villages infrastructre why the heck wasn't he on this list?!?

A movement of his fingers can cause tremors! Known as "The Fastest Shinobi"! Creator numerous jutsus like shadow clone, transportation jutsu, Edo Tensei! The Second HOKAGE after Hashirama! How come he is so low?

He is faster then 4th and fight with madara and his brother in there era and defeated them... He is one of the most powerful personality in Naruto...

Seriously? He created 3 of the most useful and powerful jutsu! He killed madara's brother izuna and was about to kill madara WITH eternal mangekyou sharingan! The man also became 2nd hoakge and taught the 3rd. Why is he so low on this list?

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

As many other people here have stated (like that awesome rhyming dude) he can open the 8 gates, which gives him power greater than the 5 kage - and this refers to the previous 5 not the current 5 who are kinda useless. He nearly killed madara (as stated by madara) and was able to get used to the excruciating pain caused by having the 8 gates opened. He may not be number 1 (or he may be) but he should definitely be higher.

Seriously people, guy is a boss! Even itachi knew not to mess with him and warned kisame about him; did kisame listen, no and see where that got him.dead. Guy CAN use ninjutsu, he just doesn't so he can help lee, that's what a dedicated teacher he is. Plus he always wears ankle weights and can open the 8 gates, although he usually stops at 7. His morning peacock is extremely dangerous as he moves so fast the air around him catches alight and his daytime tiger what strong enough to defeat madara uchiha's susanoo. This guy is not a joke and a deserves a spot in the top 10 at least.

HOW IS MIGHT GUY #29!?!?!?

Strongest/best taijutsu user. Would pretty much be able to defeat almost everyone on this list through 8 gates. (Albeit at likely cost of his own life) Even Madara stated he's the strongest during their fight. (Very high honour/praise to be told that by Madara) There's also the fact that all his power was from actually training, he never received it from others, unlike some certain high-ranking individuals on this list.

Might guy might be 27th, but Night Guy should be at least above Hashirama Senju the First Hokage. If anyone can remember even Madara Uchiha as the Ten Tail's Jinchuuriki said himself that 'Night Guy' or 'Crimson Beast' was stronger than Hashirama Senju.

After all Hashirama lost against Madara Uchiha in the Fourth Shinobi War before Madara had even become the Ten Tail's Jinchuuriki, but 'Night Guy' nearly killed Madara when Madaara had become the Ten Tail's Jinchuuriki.

18 Kabuto Yakushi Kabuto Yakushi is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Kabuto can't just summon the dead back, through Edo Tensei and Dead Soul technique, but also he achieved the Dragon Sage Mode just like the other top ninjas who also acquired other Sage mode. Before Naruto Shippuden, he already proved to be a formidable enemy against Tsunade and Jiraiya even comments that Kabuto's level is comparable to Kakashi. Gathered intel all around the Shinobi world is the deadliest weapon according to Orochimaru in their first meeting and Yakushi Kabuto has it. All these and other exemplary traits being from just a subordinate/right hand man of the Snake Sannin to becoming the main antagonist of Naruto series, this character deserves to be on the top ten.

He is stronger than everyone else on the list because people like Madara or Nagato are only a part of one of Kabuto's jutsu! Kabuto has Edo Tensei, which means he has his own power combined with the powers of Madara, Nagato, Itachi, Deidara, and Sasori for example with him, only making one, and that one is Kabuto. So Kabuto+5 strongest ninja= Kabuto. And even if he doesn't use Edo Tensei, he's still ridiculously powerful. Infinite Sage Mode, extreme regeneration, literally infinite chakra, immunity to ocular genjutsu as well as being seemingly immune to taijutsu and ninjutsu, and *intelligence* makes Madara look like sht.

People say he doesn't have the eyes of a human and I think it is true. He is a total monster. He wears glasses and always pushes them back towards his eyes every 5 seconds. It may be true that he's very powerful but I somewhat think he doesn't deserves to have these powers. (Orochimaru's power). I hate his grey hair but somehow reminds me of Sasuke. So he's a monster.

Kabuto said himself that he has now surpassed his former master orochimaru and the and the second hokage. He was able to persuade even madara to join forces by displaying only one jutsu and without his assistance madara probably wouldn't have stood a chance in the war.

19 Asura Otsutsuki

The sons of the sage they basically have a slightly weaker version of what Naruto and Saskue have just without the rinnegan and bringing people back to life.

His name is Asura (and he's also ancestor of Uzumaki clan) He should also be in front of Indra (Uchiha Clan Ancestor) as the Senju clan has always been aknowledged to be stronger. (Hashirama beat Madara etc.) Also his powers were poor at start but eventually he surpassed his genius brother (kinda like how Naruto was always the lame ninja but eventually grew strong enough to beat his rival's ***)

How do you know he is noisy?

20 A (Third Raikage)
21 Gaara Gaara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is the jinchuuriki of the one-tailed shukaku and can control sand that is stored in his gourd.

Gaara may not be the strongest but in my opinion he is at least stronger than any other kage except Hashirama and on par with Minato. The only reason he actually loses to people who seem stronger is because during the war and when he was kidnapped, he always had his hands full with saving his subordinate's asses. Remember Deidara's Mushroom cloud being dropped on Suna or him protecting the other kage against madara with his sand. Against naruto, he fought when he was unstable, young and like a berserker so that doesn't count. One of the biggest reasons that I would call him greater than other kage's is because he is a lot smarter than them and deduces his opponent's weakness, case in point battle against 2nd Mizukage, in mere moments. So this guy should be higher up the list.

Gaara is just the best without question. You can't touch him, much less HURT him. His defense is the absolute best, next to the ridiculously OP susano'o. And, honestly, I think it's even better then that. If you let his sand get to you, you're dead instantly. And his tattoo, for those who don't know, says "love" and was engraved into his head by the sand that constantly shrouds and protects him.

To put it all simply, Gaara has the best attack, the best defense, the shortest temper, the AWESOME looks, a tattoo, and you ain't got on the guy. Gaara is just pretty much like god in naruto. An extremely few people can beat him on a good day. You can't touch him. Gaara is the best. End of conversation.

The only reason why people seem to say that Gaara is weak is because his sand coffin, sand tsunami, sand burial, shield, pike etc. is always matched by a greater defense. Like when Gaara was fighting Kimimaro, he couldn't crush him with the same force as he did with regular people because Kimimaro has his kekkei genkai with producing more calcium. But in reality Gaara is really strong, although the anime/manga tend to make two very strong people fight with each other and make each other match the other's skills. But to me, Gaara has the most strongest and unique jutsu, Gaara for the win!

Gaara has an extremely op defense. Very few things can get past his wall of sand and if it does it has to deal with his sand skin armour. Gaara's sand coffin and sand burial puts an enormous amount of pressure on the human body. Almost no one can survive it. He his also a master tactician, if he seems to be losing a battle then think again, he is always planning a way to defeat someone, and guess what it always works. Gaara has never lost. He's also the Fifth Kazekage.

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

A serial killer, member of the akatsuki and extremely strong ninja that has eben a live for a while.

Come on he is a immortal

23 Ten-Tails

The reason tailed beast cannot be ranked in my opinion is because they can and are easily sealed inside people. Ten-tails just made this far based on it having limitless power of a diety. But sadly it can be tamed.

It is stronger than all the tailed beasts in naruto. The sage of the six paths was the jinchuruki of the ten tails. Its tailed beast bomb is the strongest.

Ten tails is stronger than all the tailed beasts in Naruto. The sage of the six paths was the jinchuruki of the ten tails. It's tailed beast bomb is the strongest. So you go ten tails

Ten Tails is the strongest character. He has enough power to destroy the world easily.

24 Sakumo Hatake

Sakumo was a famous and powerful ninja of Konohagakure who, during his lifetime, held fame that was said to overshadow even that of the Sannin.

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

Shisui is known to be one of the most powerful Uchiha members, so powerful in fact that he was feared by a lot of people even those of the Uchiha. Therefore ones like Danzo hunted down Shisui, if Itachi were to try to kill Shisui by force, Itachi himself would have a very hard time doing so.

He was said to have the most powerful sharingan ever. He also can us the EMS! He gave itachi his eye in fear that someone would take them after his death.

Shisui Uchiha is the one who gave Itachi the sharingan and make Itachi capable to save the village and the Uchiha clan name. I think he is the true saveir of the Uchiha Clan and the Village.

The strongest character, who was unique who activated Susanoo with one eye. He is the most powerful in this anime, that's why he died when he was 13
