Top Ten Male Naruto Characters


The Top Ten

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

Naruto is dumb but he is actually smart. He gets stronger and stronger everyday to become the great hokage who ever lived. Naruto inspired me more than ever to complete my dreams and never give up on your dreams. I love you Naruto you're the best.

I agree, I think because he's getting stronger, he's getting a tiny bit smarter - AnnaOfArendelle332

naruto is awesome and never gives up no matter what it takes plus he's funny

He's like me! That is why I guess that I love him...

Though he is really stupid Naruto is really strong, brave and awesome! He would do anything for his country and for his friends. He used to be hated and no one liked him but now he has great friends. Yes, he is stubborn and sometimes annoying even for some anime/manga viewers but he is a great person. Who will one day be a Hokage.

Dude he is female character

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

The most awesome and definitely the sexiest character in Naruto (tho that's just my personal opinion) Despite that, he's had such a hard, sad, unforgiving existance that even if you don't like him in the beginning, you GROW to love him. It was incredibly heartwrenching when he died, when we all learned he loved Sasuke to the end, and that he was the victim of a fate outside of his control. He is, was, and will always remain to be, the most noble and conflicted and loveable character in Masashi-sama's world. May he find eternal happiness. Rest in peace, Uchiha Itachi.

He lived through a tough, horrid life and had to suffer a lot but he still secretly wished for peace and loved his little brother... He's got a interesting personality: a pacifist who's believed to be a psycho murderer, who has the ability to observe their surroundings and analyse their enemies, has an AMAZING foresight (come on, he could predict his own death in Sasukes hands and stuff... ), he's caring and sweet under those cold eyes of his... He's intelligent, a great shinobi and simply cool. Not to mention that he is pretty darn good-looking too... Itachi rocks, believe it.

his is the sexiest the stronger the most awesome character. he is so cool and he is caring (especialy to sasuke) and he is stronger than the sannins he has gone through many things in his life and he's still awesome and cool and the most super wow charachter in naruto series!

He is so overrated his was life was easy compare to gaara naruto and sasuke life... he is not even stronger

3 Shikamaru Nara Shikamaru Nara Shikamaru Nara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I really like shikamaru. He is like the most intelligent ninja in there. He can also be cool and awesome sometimes.

I've always liked Shikamaru 1 beacause he was Asuma my fav characters student and two he's a bloody genius his strategy was the reason that two akatsuki members were taken out and yes I know he hadnt pland on naruto being ready but his plan was brilliant when you consider that he had little to no intel on kakuzu's full abilities

What I love the most about Shikamaru, other than his intelligence, attitude and love for his comrades, is the fact that amongst all the shinobi in this list, his character is the one that is the most understated. Even with that brain and those skills of his, you don't see other characters goggling at him or talking about him like he's some god or legend or cool-as-ice pretty boy. He's plain old Shikamaru, nothing more, nothing LESS, and no amount of character development (of course, he's had his fair share) has taken that cool, laid-back, understated shikamaru magic away from him. If you ask me, that's his ninja way.

He is the smartest in the village and he deserves to be the hokage's helper, he also feels about his responsibilities

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

I cannot say enough good about Kakashi.

First, powers. Kakashi is the strongest Konoha Jonin. By far. He is world renowned for his sharingan, and has a huge range of jutsus. He has the Chidori and Raikiri, both incredibly powerful techniques. His average chakra reserves, especially with sharingan, make him very balanced, not too OP. Although his ninjutsu mastery along with very high skill in Genjutsu and Taijutsu (and speed and intelligence) is extremely powerful. So yeah, he's around Kage level power.

His appearance. For one thing, he actually looks like a ninja (come on naruto, an orange jumpsuit? ), and the silver hair and forehead protector eye patch are super cool. He looks super cool and mysterious in general, really.

Personality. Kakashi is a happy, if somewhat lazy and witty person. He goes around smiling and being nice. Also, he reads a lot (no comment on genre). Very cool.

Story. Really sad and interesting. Nothing more to say about ...more

Kakashi Hatake has to be the best character, he has amazing fighting ability which is enhanced by his sharingan eye, he also has amazing strategic skills. At first I thought he was the typical cool mentor but he is so much funnier than his appearance makes him out to be, with the casual reading of porn, the always being late and having the most hilarious excuse like 'sorry I was lost on the path life'. His looks his a whole other thing, I love the silver hair, his mask makes him super mysterious and his little smile is adorable. The fact that he has a sad past makes me love him even more. Best.

Loves to read love paradise. Trains Naruro Uzamaki, Sasuke Uchia and Sakura. Gained his shangri eye from his team friend when he was a child. He is a perv but keeps his job in a sensible fashion and keeps professional. His humour can get anyone to laugh, even by his mask. Kakashi Hakate is considered the strongest ninja as he is able to copy skills from other ninjas and he is not afraid to die for his village people. His voice is smooth and perfect.

Hatake Kakashi also know as Copy Ninja Kakashi is one of the strongest Shinobi in Konoha. He can use Chidori and also he's amazing when using his Sharingan. Also he is the Sensei (teacher) that can easily get along with the other students or the other teams. He's good at teaching giving the simplest example if possible, a caring mentor and he believes in his students ability. When he goes to a mission he always makes sure the safety of the people around him especially the Team Seven or Team Kakashi.

Kakashi-sensei and Naruto
During the training of the shape and nature manipulation to form a new technique...
Kakashi always catch Naruto when he was about to passed out after using most of his own chakra.
And also when he acknowledge Naruto and says "You're the only shinobi in the world who can surpass the Fourth. That's what I believe."

For me he's one of the nicest, coolest, strongest and attractive shinobi in Konoha especially when he smiles. <3 <3 <3 ...more

5 Kiba Inuzuka

Dude, it's Kiba. The only one without some really depressing back story and yet he can still make it in the great character list. How can you say no to the puppy face?

I love Kiba! He's just amazing! He's cute, loyal, funny and he made it to the great character list! He's my fave character in Naruto! Little Me loves cute little doggy-boy!

I don't even get why he's in the top ten he's never really done anything except in the Sasuke retrieval mission otherwise he wasn't really a relevant character. He's not particularly interesting either and though he matured later on, in the chunin exams he proved he could be unreasonably mean for no reason. I don't hate him I really don't in fact I kind of like him but what the heck is he doing above Kakashi, Neji, and Gaara they are great characters with lots of character development and bigger roles in the story. They are all smarter than, stronger than, and ultimately better than Kiba. He shouldn't be in the top ten at all

He's one of most real characters. No depressing back story, no hate and loneliness - and what's wrong with that? He is funny, loyal, caring. And he's belivable - I'm sorry, but there's only few characters that are believable.
He's not super strong, not super smart. For me that's good. He's just in the middle.
Personally, I love when he makes fun of Hinata's fellings. Yeah, it's really funny when she gets embrassed because of that.
And when they were in the Sasuke retrieval mission, as he was not his friend and really, in fact there was no reason he almost killed himself to defeat Ukon.
So, yeah, I love him and he is the best character for me.

6 Neji Hyuuga

Neji is the best he isn't one of the star characters he's a true working class shinobi if he wasnt shuned by his own people for so long he would be stronger than both sasuke and Naruto. Neji can shut down your whole body in a few seconds with 64 palm then those nine tails or that genjutsu doesn't matter and Lees speed is nothing compared to how fast Neji can strike

Neji is sure the best. He has a very strong byakugan. As stated by kakashi hatake he could defeat sasuke. The only one he lost to was naruto. He has ultimate defense. His is one of the strongest if not the best. He is a master of taijutsu. He has soft hand in which stated that only with one hit in a vital part he can kill any. He can dodge ANY attackin 1000 meteres. He has the best stamina and agility as stated by kakashi. Iam sure he should be number 1

Narutos an accident and sasukes an A. I vote neji hyuuga for hokage. Killer bee and the raikage are better than Naruto and sasuke as well.

My favourite character in Naruto. He's hot and strong plus I just love his eyes.

7 Gaara No Subaku

He's so stoic and amazing! His eyes are a really pretty color, and I don't think I know anyone else who can make sea foam green and bright red look good! He's the sexiest character by far!

Gaara is not only the hottest male character in Naruto Shippuden but also the best role model I mean not that Naruto isn't a good role model because Naruto is a super like very super role model do not ever doubt that. Like I just mean to think that Gaara was so evil and then in just two and a half year he became like the sweetest intelligence and Hottest male in Naruto Like I don't mean that he was locking ugly in Naruto but he was kind of a freak but totally like Gaara have been my favorite character from the start like I mean THE START like when I was like 5 years old I played baritone storm 2 in I remember that I always choose Gaara to fight in battle. But try to think very deeply about that the few words Naruto spoke to Garrs doing the Chunin exams could change so much! I mean like the words Naruto spoke were sooo touching I was literally crying at that scene but those words chanced Gaara into what he is in Shippuden but Naruto is always changing everyone he fights its like he is ...more

He's not a monster, he only need love. Back when he's young, Sunagakure villagers truly hate him and this made him turn into serious and never care anyone until he meet Naruto, then he change into a better person.

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

Sasuke haters, stop hating! Think about how you would feel in his position! He is still a good person, remember how he wouldn't kill anyone and orochimaru called him soft? On the inside, Sasuke is still the same sweet person before the Uchiha massacre. Obito twisted him so if you want to vent talk about how much Obito sucks. After obito came into his life, he completely destroyed Sasuke's mind. He isn't gay either. I think this is because of the different cultures in Japan? East Asia and the west. What kishi is trying to say is that Sasuke is so focused on his revenge that he doesn't care about dating girls but he isn't gay. Gay is a very rare thing in east asia, not that its bad, its just a different culture and so no he's not gay. I actually admire the fact that he's not goggling after every other pretty girl

To the ignorant... he's kinda one dimensional however for the most part if you look past the outer personality he's really complex and affected by everything! And like he says how can we possibly understand his situation? He also genuinely cared for team seven in part one, risking his life for both Naruto and Sakura despite the curse of hatred. Whilst an almost perfect character I just think Kishi rushed his envelopment in hatred when it comes to the five kage summit! One moment risking everything to save Suigetsu and Karin, the next slaughtering samurai and abandoning them for his goals. That's the first bad point... the second is his instant decision to protect the village hidden in the leaves. There should have been so much more for a guy who was going to kill every man women and child. He's my favourite character not only due to his complexity but also due to his ability to move the plot along!

Sasuke-kun is a very dark person but a good person in the inside no matter what people say I think that Sasuke is a good person and not so evil the only reason why because he had the hardest time in his life, seeing his whole family being killed in front of him so I get why his like that but still don't judge him if you were ever in his purpose then you might want to kill the person who killed your family SO WHAT DO you HAVE TO SAY NOW but that is not the only reason the other reason is because I LOVE SASUHINA ALWAYS AND FOREVER

Sasuke is a female character

9 Minato Namikaze 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 more.

The lovely Fourth Hokage! who couldn't love him? Ya know he had it rough... him dieing to save his village, but putting his only son in danger :'(

I think that people are forgetting about the fourth hokage. He is awesome, he was the one who invented the rasengan. He can kill 100 people like that with his special shuriken technique. And of course he had to die later on along with the nine tailed fox.

People, did you ask yourself how minato would be in sage mode

Took down more than 1000 shinobi by himself... tell me that hard to beat

10 Rock Lee Rock Lee

He is so inspirational to me. No matter what obstacles he faces, he tries his hardest. If he fails, he gets back up and tries again. I also love his personality, a mixture of serious dedication and zaniness. He makes me smile

Rock lee is pretty cool, always happy and the best tai jutsu for his age

His tai jutsu is awesome and has killer speed. He can also use hidden lotus, which nearly killed Garra!

Mega Brows, Red and other peeps love this sicko :) I always thought Lee was gay

11 Deidara Deidara

As far as anime dudes are concerned, Deidara "hit the bull's eye on the target of my affections". He's a strikingly handsome character, with speech mannerism, hot personality, and thrilling skills, fancy in every way.

Come on he's so funny when he gets annoyed at tobi because most of the time he threatens to blow him up.

Deidara, Deidara, why so cute? Maybe cause you left your village... too cute but I do love his art in some ways he is right art is an explosion...

12 Madara Uchiha 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, more.

He probably smells like power

At this point in the series no one can singlehandedly beat Madara! He is the closest thing to the Sage of the six paths!

He's practically a shinobi god

Well I guess he's the best,he has got everything, is good looking and powerful too. In my opinion,madara is the best of all

13 Pain

An amazing person and ninja who chose the wrong method to help others and better the world - and in the end managed to set aside any differences and trust Naruto. Has known more suffering than most, and deserves to be acknowledged.

This is my personal opinion, but actually I watched again and again on naruto vs pain arc, which it gave me deep impression when he discussing about the 'peace' with naruto it gave me lots of question too, even his method was harsh and dictatorship-like leader, his village was running smoothly, and everybody praised him as a 'god' his power was also powerful, using his six paths of pain, he defeat the naruto, incapacitate him with his metal rod, and without hinata's sacrifice and love, he would be dead for sure, taken to the akatsuki and extracted on demonic statue and even six tailed naruto could not defeat tendo pain. Later on, even naruto accept pain (Nagato), the one who tried to create 'peaceful' world, even his method was a bit... scary... Thirdly, naruto and tobi acknowledge him as third rikudo senin. (When he was EDO TENSEI, he could easily overwhelming nine tail chakra mode and killer b, 'he just got defeated because he wasn't mobile enough - kabuto yakushi'

He is so cute and awesome you can't imagine. He is 1 of the strongest ninjas in Naruto universe

Pain is the leader of the akatuski. he is both a smart and fair person. Also he is the only one in the akatuski who can summon the gedo statue. Well until madara showed up and well you get the rest. His dream is to use the tailed beasts and create a jutsu strong enough to masscare a whole nation. By doing that he can show true pain which he believes is true peace.

14 Sasori Sasori

I really love puppets and if I were a ninja, I'd have him as a sensei. Sasori-sensei would be how I'd call him, to teach me all those puppet jutsu's. He's a really interesting character, but he should've received more time both in the manga and in the canon anime. His jutsu is one of my favorites, and he's able to control like one hundred puppets all by himself. That's crazy! That says how intelligent this guy is, exceedingly intelligent. I wish he'd taught me a jutsu where I can use four puppets: a king one that uses wind, a queen one that uses water, a dragon puppet that uses fire style, and a me-puppet that uses ying and yang release as well as sound-based jutsu; like the six pains technique for me, but with puppets. Anyways, his story, his strength, his jutsu, and his intelligence is why makes him a great character!

Sasori is completely OP (the only thing he lacks is main character status, which comes useful when you need plot no jutsu). Even though he's puppet, he's HOT. I really wish Kishimoto would elaborate more on Sasori (possible eternal reincarnation? ) Actually, you know what, just bring back the Akatsuki all together. They are the reason I like Naruto.

Woah, woah, woah, woah. Hold up, why is Sasori all the way down here? You people realize he is smokin' HOT! I mean his true form is perfection! And his voice! Sooo cute! Not to mention how strong he is too! Sasori is about as cute as Itachi, Minato, Naruto, Neji and Shikamaru! Actually he's way more sweeter than Shikamaru and Neji and Naruto (to me anyway) but all I'm saying is that he would be higher with those cute guys!

Eternal Beauty...

15 Jiraiya sama

Why is one of the greatest ninja in the leaf village not apart of the top 10?

I think jiraiya is quite perverted but he is a great ninja

A big pervert yet a great sensei

Jiraiya made Tsunade cry when he died, taught the Fourth Hokage Minato, taught the Fourth Hokage son, and the Fourth Hokage's son became a Hokage, and was kind enough to teach three orphans ninjutsu. Even though he is a pervert, it fits Jiraiya's personality sooo much. I want him as a teacher and godfather like Naruto.

16 2nd Hokage

Hashirama and tobirama or so cute

He's so underrated in the looks department... Just saying

He deserves to be known by all Naruto fans, when people get past the mainstream characters they can find this genius prodigy and learn his awesomeness

17 Suigetsu Hozuki

He's Suigetsu naf Said. He's awesome and a cool swordsman. Need to get more of Suigetsu also is relate able since he's a coward like Usopp.

Suigetdu is hot.. I MEAN IT (look at him shirtless) But yeah.. I really like him when he's arguing with Karin (makes me JEALOUZ) buthe is awesome

18 Orochimaru Orochimaru Orochimaru 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.

We have one of the most interesting Naruto character at number 21. What's wrong with you people? I can't understand how Shino, Zabuza, Suigetsu or Konahamaru are higher on this list. What's so unusual and special about them? They're just mediocre stupid characters. Not to mention Rock Lee or Jiraiya. Tch, you people are so predictable. You always love the protagonist, the most powerful dudes, the most handsome ones, the most intelligent ones -although, out of these, intelligence is far superior and more important (I'll always choose intelligence over beauty). That's why Naruto is number one when he's nothing more than a typical protagonist. There's nothing special about him - he starts out as the weakest and finishes as the most powerful. And bam! All people who hated on him realize that they love Naruto. Stupid. There's nothing special about him, as I've already stated. People always admire characters who follow "the right path" and became generous, caring, lovely persons. ...more

I agree or somewhat agree with many points of your treatise. I vehemently disagree with 2 points. Kakashi is an over-rated bore. Sasuke is a complete failure as a character.

He is a great person. Especially when he was young. The most thing I like about him is that he knew that sasuke is weak. While everybody else is BLIND.

Why does everyone hate him?! He's a genius and good looking!


He was too cute when he was a kid and dotted by hiruzen too. even after being killed by him sarutobi only remembered him as as that lost innocent kid in his last breaths.

as an adut he is too sexy and hot, you can't just ignore, very sarcastic yet witty at the same time.and his voice is oh so sexy too..

19 Gai

Madara praised him and also said that he never had so much fun, and Gai almost killed Madara. Madara said "Idiot, I almost died that time"

The most strongly. He open eight door.


20 Iruka Umino Iruka Umino

Iruka is such a nice person. And is quite good looking... yum

Iruka...he said he's like an older brother for Naruto, but for me, he's like a father and the first person to fully understand Naruto. =)

He's so nice I don't get why he isn't higher in the list iruka not only is one of narutos very close companions but he was like a father to Naruto. I really love how good of a character he is he's so nice and sweet *-*
