Top 10 Strongest Female Naruto Characters

While not all female characters in Naruto are portrayed as strong, some of them are capable of competing with characters like Naruto.
The Top Ten
1 Sakura Haruno Sakura Haruno is the main heroine of the series "Naruto Shonen Jump!" and Naruto Shippuden. She is the only female ninja of Team Seven. Her family consists of her mother, Mebuki Haruno, and her father Kizashi Haruno. Her clan is likely not very well known around Konoha and up until "Boruto: Naruto Next... read more

Alright, so I don't want to go on a rant about how Sakura is not useless, even though I want to. Anyways, I have to admit Sakura was pretty useless in the original series. She did cry all the time, also being totally obsessed with Sasuke and mean to Naruto. But later on, she understands all of that and tries to become a better person. And come on, people, she was only twelve! That's the age when girls develop, and their feelings overwhelm them. I'm saying this as a girl going through this.

So, the reason why I chose Sakura was because of how amazing her power is. She might not have a sad backstory, but she created an interesting story of her own. She is in Squad 7, where two of the members are the most powerful shinobi ever. And the fact that she overpowered Tsunade in power and wits means that she has the potential to be a Hokage too!

Go Sakura!

2 Konan Konan is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

Konan's story with Yahiko and Nagato is really touching. She's strong in that she survived just as a child, and she's kind in that she took in Nagato. She was the only female in Akatsuki because she was the only female strong enough to walk amongst them.

She's beautiful, courageous, and brave. She's a very caring person and even has romantic feelings (for example, she and Yahiko both loved each other and they didn't date because Konan wanted them to accomplish what they were aiming for first). Therefore, she was strong enough to control her feelings.

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

Strong on the inside and outside... Mature, independent (deals with her own issues and doesn't cry for someone else to solve her problems, unlike Sakura), physically extremely strong, intellectual, brave, fearless, and bad-ass (went to fight Pain with a threat after using almost all her strength), a brilliant medic, and protects the ones important to her... I guess all that makes her really strong. Plus, she is so cute (no reference intended to her breasts) and overall cool.

Tsunade has all the strength of Sakura and then some. Plus, her incredible healing powers make her near invulnerable. Anything short of an atomic blast and she is getting back up and pounding you into the ground!

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

I understand that Kaguya is a fairly new character, but shouldn't most people have finished the series by now?

Or maybe you think Sakura is stronger than her. Yes, I do believe Sakura has surpassed Tsunade and might be stronger than Konan and Mei, but placing her above a literal god is ridiculous. And I'm not talking about god tier like Naruto and Sasuke, but a literal god.

It took Team 7 in their most powerful form to seal her. Not beat, but seal. That is ridiculously overpowered. Please, this shouldn't even be an argument.

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

Temari was the second most inspirational person, just below Hinata, because she talks and acts like a boss. I don't think there is any other woman out there who is more caring for their siblings than Temari. She worries about them all the time if something happens and will rush to them. She was also very powerful when she first appeared in the series. Also, she was able to summon an animal way before Naruto.

In the manga, Temari herself stated that she was a top-rank wind user, probably the best there is. However, she cannot apply an S-rank shape transformation to her wind release. Therefore, as she claimed to be the best wind user, it was deemed impossible. Yet, Naruto managed to do it in the form of Rasenshuriken. Consequently, I conclude that Temari is the second-best wind user, with Naruto being the first. She is also a strategist, skilled enough to keep Shikamaru on his toes.

Additionally, Temari was the first person to land a hit on Madara Uchiha after his resurrection. She executed summons perfectly as a Genin and became a Jonin before Shikamaru.

Summary: Yeah, that gal is strong.

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

Even though Hinata does very simple things, they are always of the utmost importance. I have no grudges against Sakura, but where was she when Neji was dying? I thought she told Katsuya to heal everyone on the battlefield who needed major help or something.

If Hinata hadn't stood up against Pain, Naruto would've been taken. And if she wasn't there next to Naruto in the war, he would've given up on the Shinobi War! Hinata's kindness gave her a new strength to fight back. Why do you think Toneri wanted her? Because she was the descendant of Hamura, who was really powerful back in the day.

So, I believe Sakura should put her medic and strength to more helpful use and stop looking down on the person who's trying her best.

7 Mei Terumi Mei Terumi is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Well, I guess she could defeat Tsunade in a fight. It's just guesswork. She has three chakra natures after all. So maybe she has a chance against Tsunade and Sakura.

Mei can obviously fight against Sakura and Hinata pretty much anytime she wants to. Also, she could fight against Temari any time as well. So, she should be at least higher than them.

Just goes to show how biased people are. She. Is. A. Kage. She can easily beat Sakura and Hinata TOGETHER any day.

8 Chiyo

Chiyo of the Sand is the eldest and the most experienced ninja, in my opinion. Her mastery of poisons and puppets together make a deadly combo. Her age didn't hold her back when she fought Sasori. Her abilities and efficiency with her abilities bore fruit while fighting Sasori.

She can defeat Sasori when she is really old. Not to mention that Sasori is her own grandson.

Truly the world's greatest puppet master, and if she had been as ruthless as Sasori, she could have been a major world force.

9 Kushina Uzumaki Kushina Uzumaki is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She possesses a huge amount of chakra - all Uzumaki clan members do. She fought in a war and held her own. She was strong-willed enough to become a jinchuriki. And even though she wasn't there physically, more like in spirit, she was still a good mother. Plus, we all remember that scene when she and Naruto met.

I love Kushina! She's one of my favorite characters and she is amazing. I mean, she didn't get the nickname 'the Red Death' for nothing! She definitely should be in the top ten. I'm sure she could have topped Ino or Hinata easily.

10 Tenten Tenten is one of the main supporting characters in the Naruto anime/manga series and the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime/manga series.

How did Sakura make it to this list, let alone number 1? Tenten is clearly the best. In the Chunin exams prelims, Temari was the worst possible matchup for her, and Tenten could've beaten anybody but Temari. It's frustrating and stupid that almost all the boys in Naruto get the spotlight for being the best. Kunoichi like Temari, Tenten, and Lady Tsunade bring honor and greatness to the female ninja of the world of Naruto.

Tenten used a legendary weapon without even practicing. She got the hang of it immediately, and that's amazing. Her ability to summon tools is pretty awesome. She has so many tools and is able to use them all perfectly, showing skill and grace at the same time. She isn't sexist and doesn't care if you're a boy or girl. That's why she should be ranked 5 or 6.

The Contenders
11 Kurenai Yuhi Kurenai Yūhi is one of the supporting characters of the Naruto and Boruto universe. She is a jōnin-level kunoichi from Konohagakure. She is also the leader of Team Kurenai, which consists of: Hinata Hyūga, Shino Aburame, Kiba Inuzuka and Akamaru.

I think number 10 is a fitting place for Kurenai, maybe 9-7. Itachi, a master of Genjutsu, complimented Kurenai's genjutsu skills, saying they were about the same level as his. Let's not forget that she barely had any screentime during the show, so we couldn't really rank her any higher.

Kurenai is a perfect Sensei. She taught four kids: Hinata, Shino, Kiba, and I guess you could say she taught her daughter too!

Even ITACHI UCHIHA said her genjutsu is on par with his. That speaks volumes. She should've gotten more screen time.

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

Ino may seem weak by herself, but she possesses the badass ability to control people and creatures much stronger than herself, using them to attack. She even controlled the Juubi. As an adult, her mind transfer cannot be easily countered. Moreover, she is both a Medical Ninja and a Sensory Ninja, and her telepathy makes her incredibly useful.

Though not canon, she has the ability to disturb people's minds and make them fight for her. She has exceptional Taijutsu skills and is proficient with weapons. Overall, Ino is a unique and strong kunoichi with some impressive skills. She should rank in the 8th or 7th spot.

13 Anko Mitarashi Anko Mitarashi is a fictional character from the manga and anime franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She should at least be higher than Sakura. She was another survivor of the curse mark. Even Orochimaru said Sasuke was as strong as her. So basically, she should be somewhere around Sasuke's level at least in Part 1.

14 Sarada Uchiha Sarada Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga by Masashi Kishimoto. She is the daughter of Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno.

I feel that although she is young, she has a powerful mindset to become Hokage, not like Naruto, and that's what helped Naruto to become Hokage. She hasn't even shown what else she is capable of, but as the Boruto Anime progresses, I believe she can become quite powerful, just as her father did. She has Sharingan and possibly Mangekyou in future episodes. So much potential!

She aspires to become the Hokage. I pray that she does because I have high hopes for her. It's about time we have a good female Kage and not a lousy one. Plus, she is a female Sharingan user. What more could you ask for?

15 Himawari Uzumaki

Himawari is very optimistic and caring, quite similar to her mother. Although she is willing to fight tooth and nail, unlike Hinata when she was young, I believe Himawari will be cheerful but show no mercy to her enemies if they hurt her or her loved ones. I think she will surpass Hinata in the future for this reason. She showed no mercy with Boruto.

Activated the Byakugan at age 3 - she looks much older than three - on episode 18. She was also able to save her squad that got stuck in a well using chakra control and the Byakugan. She was able to knock Naruto and Kurama out with a blow (which caused him to miss his own event, being officially declared as the Hokage). She is also able to terrify her big brother when she is upset, though that's not an important fact.

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

Tayuya is so amazing. Like, she basically almost killed Shikamaru, and if it wasn't for Temari, he would have been dead.

17 Karin

"The delicacy to see through everything calmly. The courage to live with passion. The kunoichi Sasuke has acknowledged is the strongest."

Danzou took her away with a single kick, but then she escapes from Konoha's jail alone, haha.

She never fights, but she does it well as a medic ninja. Not only her healing technique but knowing when Sasuke is at his limit, always understanding the situation, knowing her strength, and the right place for her to keep herself safe during the fight so she can keep supporting her teammates.

For me, she looks intelligent, experienced, and everything in the quote above, but that's another kind of being strong.

"That girl... It was good to bring her here... She's useful. And Sasuke specifically chose her as his favorite." -Tobi

18 Guren

She is the only person who can use Crystal, and even Tsunade praised her.

Guren of the Crystal Style is a very powerful shinobi because of her unknown release. Her Crystal Style can literally be used as Ninjutsu as well as Taijutsu.

19 Shizune
20 Mito Uzumaki

I'm not sure, but Tsunade said that she created the 100 Healing Mark. However, Mito is seen with the Byakugou Seal when she was alive. Mito is a very lucky woman to have been able to marry Hashirama.

She was a Jinchuriki and the wife of Hashirama. She was probably stronger than Tsunade. She should be higher.

She was the first Jinchuriki of the Nine Tails, and besides, she also possesses Byakugou. She is the character who has the powers we all dream of - those of Naruto and Sakura together.

21 Ajisai
22 Hanabi Hyuga

She's five years younger than Hinata and she kicked her ass.

23 Yugito Nii

I love Yugito's character - she's pretty, strong, and confident. She was able to lure Sasori and Hidan into a trap in the cave. She is the jinchuuriki of the 2 Tails (Matatabi) and has the power to transform into the bijuu as well! She was also feared by her fellow Jinchuuriki, Bee (Eight tails).

24 Fu

Fu is the Jinchuriki of Chomei but she is still optimistic and overly friendly. She wants to make 100 friends in the Chunin Exam even when it was a competition/test. She is so loyal and I see Naruto in her so much.

25 Naori Uchiha
