The Top Ten
1 Sign by Flow - Shippuden #6

This song... Oh my god! It's amazing! Fantastic! The graphics are really good, the song itself is incredibly catchy, and the lyrics... They mean so much to me. I'm always singing this song every day and I find that the placement of the song and lyrics linking with Sasuke vs Itachi... So emotional too... The feels! Inventive graphics again and a creative and amazing spin on Naruto. There is so much more I want to say but I'd probably end up repeating myself. I LOVE THIS SONG!

(MAJOR Spoiler Alert)

Amazing intro. Everything from top to bottom is perfect. My favorite part is when Jiraiya and Pain are battling on Mr. Gamaken. It's so emotional and will make you tear up near the end of the arc. Animation is really high quality as well. Probably the best opening there is, and ever will be. Song rocks too!

Emotional but upbeat at the same time. This is true art. It shows Naruto's and Sasuke's pain from the losses of jiraiya and Itachi and trying to not maintain hatred. This opening isn't just an opening, but a sign with a hidden meaning.

The best anime opening theme maybe ever. The song has amazing graphics with very emotional lyrics. This arc (which is my favorite) easily became the peak of Intensity within Naruto. I almost start crying whenever I hear this song. The nostalgia is REAL.

2 Silhouette by KANA-BOON - Naruto Shippuden #16

I like most of the Naruto Shippuden openings but this one is the all time best no matter what you say. It has this upbeat rhythm to it, the instrumental is just brilliant and it suits the 4th great ninja war arc so well, plus we were seeing Obitos story so it fit in so well. I am also found the animation in the background to be a 10/10. Especially when you see Naruto running as he grows up, the imagery it shows as he grows up just makes you appreciate the show even more because we have been with him every step of the way. I just want to give some honorable mentions to 5 of the openings.
Opening 6
Opening 15
Opening 8
Opening 3
Opening 19
That's my review :3

A very great and amazing opening that gets me excited for the fights. Breakdancing Madara was an amazing part in the opening and I was sad to not see it happen in the anime r.I.p. the opening reminds me of how strong the opponents are but how dedicated and determined Naruto and his friends are.

Everything from the visuals to the actual song is amazing, and the way they mesh the visuals and the audio is incredible, it basically shows the entire story up until that point in a minute and a half.

KANA BOON is the best song ever! I agree about the part when naruto grows from time to time and becomes his ultimate form. I also like the song and that it's so catchy..

3 Haruka Kanata by Asian Kung-fu Generation - Naruto #2

I'm here to bring my AKFG support!
You guys don't understand how OFTEN I am singing this song!
So catchy!
We need more songs like this!

This opening is the one that got me into anime openings. Now I listen to Japanese rock bands like AKG or flow all the time.

Whenever I listened to this opening I thought back to better times. I miss my childhood...

This song reminds me of the time I discovered Naruto.
Already nine years of love

4 DIVER by NICO Touches The Walls - Shippuden #8

Best Naruto Opening song with the best meaning of what Naruto is all about! A child falling into darkness, then saved by friends and loved ones and once saved he gets ready and goes back to this darkness to save one friend! Definitely the Best!

I love this opening

Naruto in 1 minute

I ally like diver because it remind me of many things also it shows no matter what when Naruto will loose hope his friends will always be there for him and will help him not to fall in the darkness like sasuke

5 Blue Bird by Ikimonogakari - Shippuden #3

Love this song, great memories about it... I've never watched Naruto and I love this song!

If you didn't cry while listening to this you're a monster.

The emotions though.
How is not top 3 by the way

Great song in general. Catchy and beautiful

6 GO!!! by Flow - Naruto #4

Favorite arc and I don't this opening just gives you like the energy to dance and sing to it. Plus the graphic are perfectly match with the song. I just love it.

No song fits Naruto better than this one! It really sets the mood for the show, and the graphics go with it perfectly!

It's just absolutely fantastic. The song is catchy, the graphics are fun and adorable, and it in general sets a good mood for the series

Such a hype song. You can't help but feel pumped for an episode after listening to this.

7 Namikaze Satellite by Snowkel - Naruto #7

Best best best best

8 Hero's Come Back by Nobodyknows+ - Shippuden #1

After all the bad Naruto openings, you go to start up Shippuden and you here this? Best opening OAT hands down. So hype. And the cool bit with the Akatsuki.

Best opening ever. Perfectly coordinated with the animation and killa song, pure energy hype.

It was a bit odd hearing this extra hype song but I've grown to love it.

The best opening ever

9 Moshimo - Shippuden #12
10 Lovers by 7!!! Oops - Shippuden #9

While there definitely are some better openings on this list, I feel like this one is incredibly underrated. Seriously surprised it isn't higher up

This song should be way higher up, it's so catchy and it's the perfect Introduction, of "Meet the Kages! " and their assistants

This song should we way higher on this list!

So much in the song and visuals this song needs to be higher on this list

The Contenders
11 Niwaka Ame Nimo Makezu by NICO Touches the Wall - Naruto Shippuden #13

Honestly I prefer Diver, Haruka Kanata and Silhouette but this one needs more love especially when it has such an amazingly animated action scene.
Also, can someone please tell me why Hero's Come Back is so high up becasue I just find it crigney with generally (not 100%) bad visuals.

Both visually stunning and musically appealing! Telling us to "seize the moment for yourself," this embodies Naruto as a whole.

This song Rocks! For me is the best opening of all time for Naruto.

The best Naruto opening.

12 Yurayura - Hearts Grow

Only reason this isn't number 1 is cause most people didn't watch the original series til the end.

It's the most underrated out of all the intros.

Agreed, love this song

13 Tomei Datta Sekai by Motohiro Hata - Shippuden #7

Best one! Best opening ever! It's the first and only one that made me get so excited that I would start dancing and singing along with it every time.
Its build is phenomenal: from Jaraiya writing to Naruto clashing with Pain, everything gets intensified.
Wo-oh-oh-oh!

14 Seishun Kyosokyoku by Sambomaster - Naruto #5

The best song ever and truly the only reason to watch all those filler episodes that were on during this opening.

The pure emotion of this one is excellent. it's a really good way of showing the irreparable rift growing between naruto and sasuke as well as the introduction to the mission to bring him back. also seeing the intro change with all the changes in the arc is awesome as well.

One of the best opening themes of any anime ever.. surprised at how low it ranks here! Set the tone for the arc!

Very underrated, I see.

15 Re:member by Flow - Naruto #8

This is childhood and the dreams... guys why did we forget?

16 Distance - Shippuden OP 2

At first I thought it was called your are my friend' but I found out it was called 'distance' but the name doesn't matter. All that matters is what it is: a great opening

It's a big change from OP1, being much more energetic and fast paced. That's why I like it.

I like the visuals and the song!
It's my favorite because that and the energie I get from watching this intro!

17 Far Away - OP 2
18 Wavering - OP 9

Great song, great visuals and amazing arc. This is where the anime is started to first heat up for the war

19 Hotaru no Hikari by Ikimono-gakari - Shippuden #5

The song is really catchy.

This is my favorite

20 Kara No Kokoro - Anly #20

The song is smooth. The animation puts me into tears. It reminds me of the long journey of watching Naruto. Especially when it says in the opening, "Tell me the story of your life" it is so sad. The opening also reminds me of who they lost, all the sacrifices, for peace, at last.

Best opening song. It is awesome song.

Especially when we had to deal with naruto ending, this must be in the top ten

21 Kanashimi Wo Yasashisa Ni - Naruto #3

The opening note to this one strikes your soul like a spear and is filled with so much emotion

22 Blood Circulator by Asian Kung-fu Generation - Shippuden #19

Yeah this one is awesome.

The best opening

Brings back memories of the past series before going to Boruto

23 Size of the Moon - Shipped #14
24 Guren - Does Shippuden #15

Kakashi vs obito was one of the best fights and this was one of the best openings. The art and music went so well with what was happening in the anime. It got me hyped

My favourite one! I love the way how it shows Naruto/Sasuke, Kakashi/Obito and Hashirama/Madara. God, the feelings...

25 CLOSER by Joe Inoue - Shippuden #4

This song deserves to be number 1 for many reasons:
1. The artist seamlessly blends both English and Japanese
2. The lyrics are pretty uplifting and motivational
3. The music is catchy
4. All the instruments by just one artist

Catchy, Inspirational and the lyrics fits perfectly for that arc. Best Naruto Shippuden Opening for me

This song came at the right arc, pretty motivational lyrics and catchy.

Sums up the themes of the show superbly.
