Top 10 Most Powerful Naruto Characters
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 with 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 eclipses 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 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!
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. He 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 with 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 breathes 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 as 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 theirs combined. He broke Tobi's mask. Despite Rikudo's power, you gotta give credit to someone faster than the speed of light.
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 battle 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 second coming of the Sage of the Six Paths! He's the founder of the Sharingan, Mangekyou Sharingan, and Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. He's the wielder of the feared Wood Release and the 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 four 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.
He's literally the reason why I watched and was hooked on Naruto! His tragic backstory and transformation as one of the most unforgettable villains in the series is truly intriguing. He's by far one of the strongest, if not one of the most powerful and excellent characters, and the most chill villain.
His aura of mysteriousness and his mask gave off an intimidating presence whenever he was shown. His Kamui is one of the most broken abilities out of all MS and was able to be abused with the help of Hashirama cells without the repercussions of blindness.
His atrocities were what made him hated by the fandom, but it's what makes him a better written villain in my opinion. He did a 180 in the end and was able to help his old friend and his team once again for the final time in battling Kaguya.
It was known that Obito had ultimately surpassed both his sensei and his teammate Kakashi and has proven that he had become a powerhouse on his own in his generation. Not even Kakashi who was known as a genius in their time comes close to outrank Obito's power level and skills.
Obito is still the mightiest Uchiha in his prime and his battle prowess and full strength is still unleashed (incomplete Juubi jinchuuriki form). He was only outshined by Naruto Sage mode with the exception of Sage Paths of Chakra which is far superior than him.
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 its 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 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!
Sasuke has been able to fight opponents and keep his own while exhausted, battered, and bruised. He defeated 1000 shinobi without getting many 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 genjutsu 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. His speed is unbelievable. From what I know, his speed is instant, 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. Sasuke can summon snakes and Susano which is pretty awesome. He even managed to look into Naruto's mind and was compared to Itachi or Madara, some even saying that he surpassed them though I'm not too sure about that.
I covered his stamina, intelligence, speed, kekkei genkai, swordsman skills and yeah. In fact, he was so strong that when fighting Madara he stated that he wished he had chosen him instead of Obito if only Sasuke was born faster.
I can't stop laughing, because Madara and Obito are stronger than Hashirama in this list, Hashirama is far more powerful than all of them. Hashirama cannot defeat Hagaromo but Hashirama easily can defeat Madara, Obito, Naruto, Itachi and Sasuke. People thinking that Itachi can defeat Madara then it 1000 years far to do that.
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. The ranking would be 1 = Kaguya, 2 = Sage of 6 Paths, 3 and 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 overpowering -->. He summons a Buddha statue with a 1000 arms, twice the size of a tailed beast and Perfect Susan'oo.
He can control tailed beasts. He 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). He is the Reincarnation of Ashura, the son with the most chakra of the 2 sons of the Sage of 6 Paths.
He has Earth style, Water style, and the legendary Wood Style. Deep Forest Emergence, Deep Forest Bloom. He is the strongest character in Naruto after the ones from myth (Kaguya, Sage, Sage's sons).
Kaguya is really strong. She is the mother of chakra, so yes, she is the first to use chakra. She is also the Ten-Tails, has the Rinne-Sharingan, Byakugan, can absorb chakra of the ones she touched, is super fast, has all five nature transformations, can regenerate and create life, has the Black Zetsu, and she can pull out something similar to Kimimaro's bone from her hand.
She is also beautiful, and she could 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 stating 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.
Logically, through my mind, Minato is arguably the strongest because of his intelligence and strength as a ninja who is not to be descendants of the strongest as Uzumaki, Uchiha, Senju and others arguably lain. Minato is great to be able to analyze the current contest in a very short time for example when Minato fought with Tobi, Minato was able to analyze three things at a time as player medals save the village, Naruto and his wife and counter Tobi. Minato also saved Kushina while it is in academics as a student without the help and information rival.
Minato is often stated as an 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 Jiraiya 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 Flying Thunder God Jutsu (backed up by his battle with Tobi).
He isn't as strong as Naruto or Sasuke because he wasn't visited by a God (I'm not including the Shinigami) and given more power than Tailed Beasts, but he certainly is one of the most powerful characters in Naruto.
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 on where to move while making said attacks so they could deflect them. Without this, I'm pretty sure things would have turned badly for, at least, one of them.
In what universe did Itachi defeat Nagato? More like they handled him with a slight advantage and full intel. Without this, I'm sure he would have killed at least one of them. In short, Itachi doesn't possess the stamina to handle three enemies of that caliber whereas Nagato does. Much less to attack the Hidden Leaf Village and destroy it completely.
I'm shocked! Hamura Otsutsuki is ranked 29th? You must be joking. He is Kaguya's son and the brother of the Sage of Six Paths, Hagoromo Otsutsuki. He and his brother defeated Kaguya together. Hamura and the Sage are almost equal in power, so it's surprising to see him in 29th place. He should be in the top 3 at least!
Hamura Otsutsuki is supposed to be in the same tier as the Sage of the Six Paths. What is this?!?
Dude, this guy has the same power level as the Sage of the Six Paths, what?
An old guy holding off Hashirama Senju, Tobirama Senju, and Orochimaru at the same time. He 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 a battle with 20 highly-skilled ninja. Tobirama chose to sacrifice himself instead.
He's 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 than any of the jutsu, but it wouldn't exceed Hiruzen's knowledge (he was called "The Professor") of it nor would they be able to outmaneuver his creativity (i.e., combining the elements).
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 a few of the Pains (Imagine his extent in his full Sage mode). His summons are very powerful and 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 and 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 suspicion. 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.
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 Mangekyou Sharingan and can use the Kamui. Second, 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. Third, 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!
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.
Indra Otsutsuki has all the power of the Uchiha, considering he is the son of the Sage of the Six Paths.
Tobirama Senju created three of the best and most useful jutsu that have played an important role in the entire series. He also killed Izuna Uchiha.
He was even about to kill Madara, who had his Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, until Hashirama stopped him! Tobirama can perform some of the most complicated Water Style jutsu with one hand sign and became the second Hokage.
In addition, he created the village's infrastructure. I'm surprised he wasn't included on this list!
A movement of his fingers can cause tremors! Known as "The Fastest Shinobi", Tobirama Senju created numerous jutsus like the Shadow Clone, Transportation Jutsu, and Edo Tensei. He was the second Hokage after Hashirama. It's surprising to see him ranked so low.
Tobirama Senju is faster than the Fourth Hokage. He fought with Madara and his brother in their era and defeated them. He is one of the most powerful personalities in Naruto.
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 was strong enough to defeat Madara Uchiha's Susanoo. This guy is not a joke and deserves a spot in the top 10 at least.
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 modes. 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 plus five strongest ninja equals 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 nothing.
The sons of the Sage basically have a slightly weaker version of what Naruto and Sasuke have, just without the Rinnegan and the ability to bring 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 acknowledged 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 ***)
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 than that. If you let his sand get to you, you're dead instantly. 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 can't touch the guy. Gaara is pretty much like a god in Naruto. Very few people can beat him on a good day. Gaara is the best. End of conversation.
He's the greatest puppet master in the world and he even conquered an entire nation with his puppets. And he only turned out the way he did because his parents were killed by Sakumo Hatake when he was a child. But he still displays good qualities. He rocks! He definitely made Naruto worth watching.
One of the most unique fighting styles combined, being the best puppeteer. If he killed alone the strongest character from the sand village, that means he is much more powerful than Gaara. Also he died because he wanted, leaving his grandmother to kill him for unknown reason. He is also the best ninja for a style (puppet).
He took down a whole nation.
Defeated the strongest Kazekage.
He doesn't feel pain.
Sasori's use of his puppets was greatly feared throughout the Third Shinobi World War as he turned the sand red with blood, giving him the nickname, "Sasori of the Red Sand".
Deidara also admits that Sasori was stronger than him.
Sasori is probably immune against genjutsu.
Sasori committed suicide twice - Only Sasori can kill Sasori.
In my opinion, tailed beasts cannot be ranked because they can be easily sealed inside people. The Ten-Tails made it this far based on its limitless power of a deity. But sadly, it can be tamed.
The Ten-Tails is stronger than all the tailed beasts in Naruto. The Sage of the Six Paths was the Jinchuriki of the Ten-Tails. Its Tailed Beast Bomb is the strongest.
The Ten-Tails is stronger than all the tailed beasts in Naruto. The Sage of the Six Paths was the Jinchuriki of the Ten-Tails. Its Tailed Beast Bomb is the strongest. So, go Ten-Tails!
Sakumo Hatake was a famous and powerful ninja of Konohagakure. During his lifetime, his fame was said to overshadow even that of the Sannin.
I understand that Kisame is not the strongest of the ninja and doesn't deserve to be in the top 5-10 but seriously, placing Kiba, Konohamuru, Sakura, Rock Lee, Hidan etc in front of him is just ridiculous!
Let's go through this list: Vs Kiba, I don't have much to say here, Kisame overpowers him in almost every category. Vs Konohamuru, honestly this might be even worse than Kiba vs Kisame because Konohamuru is still a ninja in training and just because he managed to master the Rasengan doesn't mean he is overpowered.
Vs Sakura, really! Kisame is way more experienced, has more chakra and plays way more strategically. And finally, Vs Rocklee, this battle is similar to vs Sakura because like Sakura, Lee is not as experienced and does not have as much power.
I'm probably getting a bit controversial when I say he could beat Onomi, Deidara, the Raikage or Tsunade but I'm still deciding… However, it is clear that he should be ranked higher.
