Add to the list if you feel like doing so. This is primarily for manga readers but anyone can vote.

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.

This one is the best of all, because this one is a man in title
haha what a pity you are if you don't vote it naruto is the best he can use everything perfectly with his scream and a nine tiles

Mastered rasengan, sage mode, shadow clone jutsu and can use tailed beast mode. - mcarzwashere

There is a reason why the series is called naruto...

Elangbam punshiba meitei is naruto and khagembam anjelika is hinata

2 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, ...read more.

Madara is probably the best character in Naruto because he's badass and a Uchiha. Honestly, his confidence is amazing and his power is incredible

Founder of konoha and First uchiha to awake mangekyo and eternal mangekyo sharingan. Rival of Hashirama. Madara Mastered the fire style. When revived by the edo tensei he was shown to be able to switch from an eternal mangekyo to rinnegan. His body was also modified with the first hokages DNA giving him the ability to use wood style as well. Can control tailed beasts with sharingan. - mcarzwashere

Madara Uchiha son of the first ninja and defeated the 5 kages even Naruto can't do that

Lets face it, u have to admit that madara is wayy stronger than naruto, I mean naruto didn't even beat him, he just eh I don't know blew him self up?

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

He is so powerful that even when sick and going blind he still held his own outmatched sasuke who was perfectly healthy and had orochimaru's power. With his powerful sasoono moves he has been called invincible. He is the best ginjutsu user in the naruto world. All his jutsu are one-hit kills.

Itachi Uchiha is the greatest and strongest shinobi of all time, even when he was just eight years old he mastered the sharingan and at the age of thirteen he was able to awaken his mangekyo sharingan which awakened by only few of uchiha's. He sacrifice his whole life only for his village and his little brother Sasuke uchiha... Even when he was dying by a life causing disease he made himself alive through medicine to complete his first and last will of dying in the hands of his little brother Sasuke Uchiha...

For me, Itachi is strongest and he didn't die in the hands of his little brother, it's because of disease.

Intelligence is off the charts, Mangekyo Sharingan, genjutsu master, Susanoo equipped with sword of totsuka and yata mirror. Broke out of the edo tensie and is living dead meaning get no drawbacks from using mangekyo. - mcarzwashere

He is the best

4 Hashirama Senju Hashirama Senju

Hashirama was probably the 2nd most powerful ninja ever to live beside the Sage of the Six Path. His weakeness was his compassion which is why people do not fear him as much as they would Madara. The manga clearly shows that the Uchiha was a 2nd rate clan next to the Senju while Hashirama was their leader. Yet Hashirama always thought of Madara as his elder, respected him, and even wanted him to be the 1st Hokage. This man has it all, UBER chaka, Unlimited healing powers, Incredible ninjutsu, and a powerful heart; cares about everyone deeply, even his enemies.

First Hokage and founder of konoha, Wood style origin and master of it. Can supress tailed beast with wood style. Feared as most powerful ninjas ever. Can heal himself with no handseals. Captured tailed beasts and gave them to other contries as peace treaties. Rival of madara, Beat him and the Ninetails. Was the leader of the senju clan. - mcarzwashere

He should be the next one after the Sage of the Six Path. He has incredible physical strength, massive chakra, healing ability, sage mode and the true wielder of the powerful wood jutsu which enables him to overpower tailed beast. But on top of it, he's a very kind-hearted person, so kind that Tobirama often had to scold him, haha. He's just the best Hokage and shinobi ever, someone with godlike power but so down to earth.

Common, He has defeated Madara and Controlled Nine tail without any tail beast :/ And besides Madara was alive and almost took off even when Hashirama was re animated.. And this guy took Hashirama cells :P and Naruto isn't that strong compared to Hashirama and Madara.. I strongly disagree with these votings lol

5 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 ...read more.

Minato is the strongest because he's practically untouchable and can. He's speed combined with de Flyng Thunder God technique can beat almost everyone, he only need touch the enemy once and place his seal on him. Besides that he has a powerful defense using space-time barrier.

Fourth Hokage, fastest Ninja of all time. He was a user of the unique space time ninjutsu known as the "flying thunder god technique". Feared as the yellowflash he saved the village from tobi and the ninetailed fox before his death. He was also the creator of the Rasengan and had a high knowledge of sealing techniques. - mcarzwashere

Minato is the greatest ninja of all time because he is the creater of many technic and he has a relation with the Rikudou sennin

He is the fastest ninja and he is the only one who saved the village from the ninetail fox and sealed it he is the fourth hokage

6 Rikudou sennin

He was known as the first ninja who taught all the techniques to all of the other ninja which makes him the best he has the strength of the uchia and senju because they are desendants of his bloodline which means madara and hashirama senju are his grandkids.

First shinobi to exist, wielder of rinnegan, divided ten tails into 9 other tailed beasts and sealed its body using planetary devastation creating the moon. - mcarzwashere

He's is the toughest because he was one of the first shinobis ever, and he had all the tailed beaste...

Oh, come on people. It is not about who your favorite character is (Naruto Madara Hashirama Itachi).Vote rationally. It is obvious that Hagoromo is the strongest and I admit it eventhough he is not my favorite one. He went from Byukugan to Sharing and finally Rinnegan. He is so powerful and Naruto's power equals not even half of Hagoromo's. Only if Naruto and Sasuke combine their powers do they have some possibilities of beating him (even though they would never fight). And I am annoyed that Itachi is so high. He is my favorite character together with Sasuke but definitely not the third strongest.

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

Come on guys, this poll isn't about who you like, it's about who's the most powerful and Sasuke definitely ranks at top 5 at least. Tobi even state to Zetsu one time that in time, Sasuke would be more powerful than Nagato and Itachi. Sasuke took on all5 kages, defeated Danzo who could use izanagi and then withought taking a break, fought and almost killed kakashi. Without Naruto being able to contol his kyuubi, Sasuke would have beat the pulp out of Naruto. Many characters in the anime said that Sasuke was super powerful. How is he in 9th place, I don't understnad

Eternal Mangekyo, inferno style (blaze release), created most powerful lightning based attack the kirin, prodigy, the main character along with naruto who constantly gets stronger - mcarzwashere

Well if Naruto is 1st, then Sasuke should be tied or second. Most people don't vote him because he's a jerk and I agree. It's understandable, but it goes against the point of this poll. Though this bull crap about Sasuke and Madara being able to whoop Naruto annoys me. Example: someone said Madara defeated the Five Kage and Naruto cannot. Well Madara was an Edo Tensei zombie which gave him an advantage though he would've still won. However, Naruto could've also defeated them after gaining the Sage's yang power. Another example: someone said Sasuke could control the Nine-Tails and defeat Naruto. Has this person read the ending? Sasuke duked it out with Naruto and they tied. So no he is not stronger. The gist of this rant is, don't make judgments mid-anime or mid-manga depending what you do (probably anime). Make the assumptions of who is stronger at the end.

Yes Sasuke should be tied to Naruto but if he had not gotten Itachi's eyes he would not have susanoo,amateratsu, and mangekyo.

8 Nagato "pain" Nagato

Uzumaki descendant blessed with the rinnengan, powers of the sage of six paths, can attack with 6 different bodies, when revived into his prime he used all abilities in his own body. Able to revive hundreds of people at cost of his own life. Was leader of the akatsuki and won the civil war in the rain village. - mcarzwashere

He chose to invade a village without a tailed beast or huge army, completely obliterate the village, created the moon, and was still capable of reviving everybody he killed afterwards. Oh, did I mention that he is in a wheel-chair like contraption? Alright, let's recap. Itachi decimated his clan (with help) and Madara fails to usurp the throne, Nagato effaces villages from maps. Enough has been said. It's not like he is the leader of a league of S-rank missing ninjas. Oh wait...

Pain can summon the gedo statue, emit a soul taking dragon that kills anyone on contact, can emit almost unlimited amounts of chakra to all the other pains who can appear and dissapear in the blink of an eye. His true ideals were for peace, and if he coincided with naruti they would make an unstoppable team. Pain can use advanced summoning jutsu to call upon a great number of creatures all with insane abilitys and can portrude blades out of his arms... Every pain has different deadly jutsu, and one ( almighty push) can destroy an enire village at once, and after he did that he could do it again in another 5 seconds.. He almost killed naruto, he DID kill the entire leaf village as well as a lot of rain village ninja, he can use intense genjutsu with his rinnegan, and he killed KAKASHI in about 8 minutes, as well as destroyed an entire village. Lets face it, the world will never know true pain until they know nagato.

Sorry but I can't understand why he is only 8th. Guys only one of the 6 pains could stand against Naruto when he had 6 tails. He would have defeated him if the other tails didn't evolve. And keep in mind that was only one pain. I think he underestimated Narutos Sage force and lost 5 of his pains due to that. He could have easily defeated him if he took the fight seriously

9 Obito Uchiha Obito Uchiha

I vote obito because he is stronger than any other akatsuki members. He started it all.he should at least be ranked in the top 3 because he is the the main villain in the entire series. End of story

Obito Uchiha is one of the strongest ninjas ever known, even though Naruto does beat him it's only because that the series is for Naruto. HE has incredible power and can do things with the Rinnegan that no-one can do.

Tobi is a clone, but, I have proof that obito is tobi and that h's the strongest

The best mising nin. Par with madara. Nagato should be 2nd place.

10 Sage of the Six Paths Sage of the 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 ...read more.

Idiots, he is already on the list in spot number 2.

I would say sage of the six paths is the best because he has rinnegan in both eyes and he can control the ten tails come one guys

Like you put like you put obito before this guy you idiots he took down the ten tails, has sage juts I and the power of all tailed beast!

IT'S SAGE OF SIX PATHS OBVIOUSLY HE IS THE BEST THEN Naruto

The Contenders

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

If he didn't have to spend his energy on protecting everyone else from dying, I'm pretty sure Kakashi would be one of the most dangerous ninjas. Plus it feels like he has yet to go all out on any enemy he has come into contact with yet. He's always holding back and is methodical in his attacks. And can I point out once again, he is always protecting someone from dying. Is there anyone in konoha (and probably most of the ninja world, if there was ever a Kakashi series I'm sure I would be validated in that statement.. ) that doesn't owe their life to this ninja?

Best man ever most cool character of Naruto... He is more careing person. He always think next step.

He's the realist ninja on Naruto and was taught by the great fourth hokage and can copy any ninjitsu and use it perfectly nearly instantaniously in the real world he should be the best ninja hands down

Really good shinobi, after all he taught the most powerful ninja

12 Tobi Tobi

Akatsuki Mastermind, Fighting the war, can regenerate limbs, can stay intangible for 5 minutes straight, master of space time ninjutsu, and tailed beast suppression and control, and rinnegan in left eye sharingan in right eye. - mcarzwashere

You should know the the guy Tobi is actually Obito

HE IS ON NUMBER NINE GUYS

MINEFIELD JUTSU!

13 Kaguya Otsutsuki (Mother of Sage of Six Paths) Kaguya Otsutsuki (Mother of Sage of Six Paths) Princess Kaguya Ōtsutsuki (大筒木カグヤ, Ōtsutsuki Kaguya) is the matriarch of the Ōtsutsuki clan and mother of Hagoromo and Hamura Ōtsutsuki . Long before the founding of the hidden villages, during an era of endless war, Kaguya consumed the fruit of the God Tree and became the first wielder ...read more.

She's been defeated twice by only the most ridiculous of odds. The Sage of Six paths (the guy so powerful he transcended space time to power up Naruto and Sasuke) and his brother (the guy who also transcended space time to have a casual conversation on the moon) both teamed up to beat her the first time. The second loss was against Naruto and Sasuke with powers granted to them by the sage of six paths, Kakashi with 2 mangekyou sharingan allowing him to use perfect susanoo with full on kamui and sakura in her strength of one hundred jutsu. Also with the second fight the sage made it so sasuke and Naruto only needed to touch her at the same time to win and they barely managed to do that!

The sage of six path AND his brother is needed to SEAL her... Not beat... SEAL... If it is a one on one no one can even come close...

They could not beat her because she was joined with ten tails who is basically a god

The other comments already said it. She's definitely the most powerful because she can never be defeated by any one ninja, merely sealed by a team of the bests (excluding herself)

She should be at number 1!

14 Tobirama Senju Tobirama Senju

He discovered many kinds if jutsu so I believe he is powerful also he is a hokage..and also using teleportation just like minato namikaze...

He rocks! I love him!

He is the best!

Created many jutsu and speed on par with 4th and obito

15 Jiraiya Jiraiya

I just think he's the most powerful, I mean. He's one of the legendary sannins, and he was supposed to be Hokage, but he turned it down. I still think he should've accepted, if he did, he would've probably been alive now.

To be fair, Naruto only won because of the Intel Jiraiya collected and sacrificed his life for. Without Jiraiya's fight against Pain, the village and Naruto would have been lost to Akatsuki. And Jiraiya could have escaped but chose not to so that the village could stop Pain. And Pain admits at the end of the fight had Jiraiya known his secret he most likely would have won the fight. - mosijjones

Itachi and Kisame said that they couldn't attack so long as Jiraiya was escorting him. Definitely among the top 10 shinobi.

Jiraiya is one of the funniest people in Naruto and is one of the legendary be just got beat up by pain because pain knew his moves and he had a chance to escape but also remember that Naruto would be dead along time ago if it wasn't for the nine tailed beast like against sasuke this guy trained the 4th hokage he defeated three pains and without his arm was able to stand against the pain and defeat at least one pain and remember he did it with one arm can Naruto do that master of toad sage big ball rasingun can summon all toads and was feared by both itachi and kisame dlso was statex to also be the only one able to stop ourochimaru without sickness disadvantage like how sasuke took the advantage and was taught by lord third

Jiraiya is definitely in the top 10 strongest shinobi he is one of the sannin, has been offered hokage three times (4th,5th,6th) he can use sage mode and itachi admitted itachi and kisame would lose to him and is the teacher of the child of prophecy

16 Hiruzen Sarutobi Hiruzen Sarutobi

Third Hokage called "god of shinobi" in his prime. Mastery of all forms of shinobi combat. He has various types of ninjutsu such as sealing techniques, shadow clone techniques, fire style, earth style, shurikenjutsu and summoning jutsu. This gave him title as professor and in his old age he was able to fight against orochimaru, the first and second hokage. - mcarzwashere

It said in the manga, in his prime he was the strongest hokage and strongest of all the kages. The author of the series said he was the strongest. That makes it less opinion and more fact. We only saw him fight when he was old and worn out, yet he was still on par with other S rank ninja in that state.

He took on Orochimaru in his old age and would have beat him 10 years before and that is probably still not his prime I would definitely say he was at least equal to Hashirama or at the worst close to him but he definitely should be in the top 10

HIRUZEN IS SUPPOSED TO BE STRONGER THAN JIRAIYA

17 Shisui Uchiha Shisui Uchiha Shisui Uchiha, Shisui of teleportation. Shisui in the Naruto series is part of the Uchiha clan which is one of the strongest clans in the series. Shisui was given the title "Shisui of teleportation". This is because he was one the only person to ever master the body flicker technique. Shiusui was one ...read more.

Master of the Body Flicker and the ultimet genjutsu Kotoamatsukami + Mangekyo sharingan

He is a mastermind in strategy and some say even smarter than itachi... Genius

It is said by the creator of Naruto that Itachi can beat Madara. Shisui is stronger than Itachi. Therefore, Shisui is stronger than all Uchiha.

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.

He almost mastered all ninjutsu ever and if he had been in top shape against sasuke he would have shredded his ass and then would have been at east top 4

Orochimaru is the one'll end the naruto series, just you listen ;)
He is a pool of mysteries

He killed 3 hokage 4 kazekage he should be in top 5

BROOOSS minato can't fight orochimaru come on lads.PLus this man killed lord third and the fourth kazekage. This list feeling mighty bs rn guys.

19 Gaara 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 have the Ultimate defense greater than the Third Rikage this comes from naruto. GAARA CAN O defense AND OFFENSIVE without moving in one spot. Gaara's sand is phenomenon. He is the first shinobi to repel Amaterasu which impress sasuke and he also repels powerful attack with his sand. HE IS THE BEST SAND USER AND HE DESERVES TO BE IN NUMBER 4 or 3

Gaara for one, is Kazekage, but that doesn't mean much when you're talking about legendary ninja. He is the only person to be born with a defense so powerful that nobody had touched him until Rock Lee in the Chuunín exams, and Gaara ended up winning that battle, even after Rock Lee performed a Lotus, and opened five of the eight chakra gates. Gaara even learned how to control the sand that had protected him since birth. Naruto even stated that Gaara has a better ultimate defense than The Third Raikage, that must mean something. Bottom line, Gaara deserves at least one of the top five spots for the most powerful shinobi.

He should be on the top five spots because he's so strong he even scares the person on the first spot in this top tens vote

He has great defense, he thinks things through and memorises peoples skill. he's been through many things and that's a good thing, ge has a lot of experience. In the first part he was like Psycho on a rampage but when he fought Naruto he listened to what he said and relised he needed to change fir the better so he did. He listens to what people have to say abd from experience knows what choices need to be made, and like Shikamaru analyses his opponent. Not many people can go through his defense or even hurt him but the sand gives him an advantage to attack the enemy without them being able to hit back. He is q very strong Shinobi
