Best Naruto Episodes


The Top Ten

1 Gaara vs. Rock Lee: The Power of Youth Explodes! Gaara vs. Rock Lee: The Power of Youth Explodes!

This is a great episode and is my favorite fight throughout the chunin exams. Both Gaara and Rock Lee show what they've got in order to beat each other. With Lee only relying on Taijutsu and Gaara slowly losing control over his tailed-beast. It was a tense fight with great pay off. - RoseRedFlower

2 The Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant The Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant

Jiraiya's final battle against the Six Paths of Pain. Sadly, he dies during this battle but not before leaving a code on Lord Fukasaku's back. Jiraiya's death was honestly one of the saddest deaths in Naruto. It even surpasses Itachi in my opinion. Especially at the end when we see Naruto and feel upset that he's lost his master. - RoseRedFlower

3 The End The End

The final fight against Sasuke and Itachi. Both brothers go all out against one another until Itachi dies and Sasuke collapses. It really shocked me when at the end of all of this Itachi poked Sasuke's forehead like he used to when when he was a kid. Later on though we see why which makes this fight even more devastating. - RoseRedFlower

4 Enter: Naruto Uzumaki! Enter: Naruto Uzumaki!

Oh the first episode of Naruto will always be one that sticks in my mind. This is how you make a good first episode and keep the viewers around for more. Naruto's upbringing, Iruka's acknowledgment of Naruto and the fact that our main character does have an ultimate goal he keeps to. - RoseRedFlower

5 Madara Uchiha Madara Uchiha

Madara goes up against an entire squad of shinobi (Naruto, Gaara, Ōnoki, Temari etc.) and pretty much outmatches them all. He's able to use Susanoo with ease, make a giant fireball attack and even kills most of the shinobi's with one meteor. Even when he doesn't use his ninjutsu or genjutsu, he can take out multiple shinobi just by his combat skills alone. Which made him a fearsome foe to reckon with. - RoseRedFlower

6 Thank You Thank You

This was my favorite flashback episode of Naruto Shippuden. Where we see Minato and Kushina's death at the hands of the Ninetails and Tobi. It was a very emotional episode that showed Iruka losing his parents and Naruto losing his parents. It gets even worse when Kushina fades away after thanking Naruto for letting her be a parent. - RoseRedFlower

7 The End of Tears The End of Tears

Naruto and Sasuke go head to head in this last episode. Naruto actually loses the fight, Sasuke abandons the Hidden Leaf Village and the mission fails. The battle between the two rivals was great and will be my favorite fight between them because of what they were fighting for. - RoseRedFlower

8 A Failure's True Power A Failure's True Power

Naruto and Neji's fight continues and you feel relieved when Naruto finally unlocks the Ninetails chakra. And it was nice seeing that brute strength didn't help Naruto win the fight but outsmarting Neji did. He used the same technique that he struggled with and was his worst technique to do so. - RoseRedFlower

This one was my favourite.-LitSavage

9 Truth Truth

Sasuke and Itachi's father, Fugaku, was the mastermind behind the coup d'état that would have had the Uchiha clan overthrow the Senju government. It was a good twist and probably the best twist within Naruto Shippuden for me. - RoseRedFlower

10 Planetary Devastation Planetary Devastation

The Contenders

11 Explode! Sage Mode Explode! Sage Mode

The first fight with Naruto VS Pain. Where Naruto witnesses the devastation of the Hidden Leaf Village and challenges the leader of the Akatsuki. - RoseRedFlower
