Top Ten Naruto Shippuden Fights


The Top Ten

1 Nagato/Pain vs Naruto Uzumaki

By far the most EPIC Naruto fight so far

The most epic one by far

This fight made everyone think naruto will become hokage its true he will

Best fight in naruto

2 Sasuke Uchiha vs Itachi Uchiha

The fight was emotional but epic as well. It revealed lots of questions that have been asked. It was inspiring and touching and I was sad about Itachi's death though. But it was great to see my 2 favourite characters fight and Sasuke stopped hating Itachi after the fight too. Though he got another ambition..

Not drawn out like Naruto vs Pain, the build up was super great, cool jutsus and animations

The reason why I would say that this fight should be above Naruto Vs. Pain, is because buildup. Kishimoto has been hyping this fight up since we met Sasuke which was essentially the first few episodes, where he says that he only has one dream which is to kill a certain man. We find out over time that this man is Itachi. We also get a hell a ton of action in this fight, and we get introduced to the bad ass techniques of Susanoo and Kirin (want to say AMATERASU, WHICH IS MY FAVORITE TECHNIQUE, BUT WE FIRST SAW AMATERASU IN PART ONE WHERE ITACHI AND KISAME ESCAPED JIRIYIA'S TOAD MOUTH WITH SOME SUSPICIOUS BLACK FLAMES AROND THE EXIT) This fight gets even better because of the emotion in this fight. Up until the fight, we thought that Itachi was just a bad ass serial killer who massacred the whole Uchiha clan. After the fight, we find out out Itachi was actually a good guy, and that the village elders were controlling Itachi and ordered him to wipe them out. We see Sasuke who lived his ...more

The fight had a lot of action and twists, but what really made this fight notable was the emotions, the sentiment, and especially the sad ending - it made me cry :�'(

Ps. Please excuse my spelling and gramma

3 Jiraiya vs Nagato/Pain

Jiraiya was so funny and it's hard to see him go. but boy did he go out with a bang

nice fight

Seriously? An awesome guy died and the battle was rated 5th?

#1 fight
#2 sasuke vs itachi

4 Gaara vs Lee

Best fight ever along with Gai's against Madara.

This was the fight that made Rock Lee my favorite character; and now that I think about it, this fight had been in the making for the entire arc: Rock Lee, the comic relief who somehow beat Sasuke and has no ninjutsu or genjutsu, against Gaara, the guy who kills without a second thought, effortlessly, and has never been hurt. This fight was a story by itself. The tragic ending, with Lee unconscious and broken but still willing to fight, being saved by his sensei and Gaara simply walking away, even though he might have stripped Lee of his shinobi career, his DREAM, brought more than one person, myself included, to tears. Simply a work of art that deserves to be at least in the top three.

Reason why I started watching Naruto. Sent the strong message about hard work vs gifted and natural geniuses.

This was the fight that made me a hardcore Naruto fan, and cemented Lee as my second favorite character. The tense atmosphere that hangs over each moment, the "Hell Yeah" moment when Lee succeeds in hitting Gaara, the tragedy of the ending, is all why this fight deserves to be in the top 3.

5 Naruto vs Sasuke

Naruto is the strongest but Sasuke just stole his chakra sooo their fight is going to be intense!


This should be at least top 3! If we're talking all of the naruto vs sasuke fights (including their final fight) then this should be #1 no question. This is the fight between the main character followed throughout the story and his main rival/friend sasuke which is the main conflict in the story line. All the training each of them experience ultimately is to beat each other and this is their showdown. How does this not get #1 or at the very least top 3!

Sippin tea in yo hood

6 Naruto, Kakashi, Guy, The 9 Tails, and Sauske vs Madara & Obito/Tobi


This was the best battle by far. I think it is the best fight because the leaf tries to face madara and cannot seem to defeat him. Madara also kills Naruto and sasuke which in the end they kick ass with 6 paths power but I think this fight is awesome!

Such an intense and long battle! The twists and storylines are so complex and ever evolving! Number 1 or at least tied with Naruto Vs Pain. But come on, the 4 hokage reanimated?! Too legit!

Wow this was by far the best fight (other than kaguya, saskue, naruto which was in the movie)

7 Kakashi & Shikamaru vs Hidan & Kakuzu

(SPOILER AT END) Watching Shikamaru fight is always awesome, because he's one of the show's weakest fighters in terms of just raw physical ability, but uses his intelligence and analytical skills to beat much stronger foes. This fight blew my mind. PLUS there was the emotional payoff of avenging (SPOILER ALERT) Asuma's death. Not only beat the evil Hidan, but he's forced to suffer forever in his immortality. Like, damn.

If We're talking about the best "Shippuden" Fight, then I'll assume the best fight in the ANIME, which includes the animation factor. Naruto vs. Pain would be the best fight in PART II of the manga, but in the anime, its animations ruined everything. And Kakashi and Shikamaru vs. Hidan and Kakuzu's animations were unmatched.

The combat skills and it was the only fight that seemed like ninjas fighting other are just one powerful move after the next. Plus kakashi was there which makes it better

Shikamaru's thinking and deductive abilities are worth of calling him the most intelligent character (if not to mention Itachi) whose fightings are interesting to watch.

8 Sakura Haruno & Chiyo vs Sasori

It showed that Sakura was more than the stereotypical bitch, now she is a bitch who can fight.

This was not only a long fight (8 episodes) but it was also sad and interesting fight. It shows flashbacks of Sasori's childhood, which made him who he is now. It always makes me feel like crying. Poor Sasori. Nobody should have to go through that. Sasori does die, but it would be incorrect to say that Sakura defeated him because she didn't. He chose to die. Chiyo even says so. In fact, Sasori would have killed Sakura for sure if it wasn't for Chiyo being there to aid her. RIP Sasori. You definitely made Naruto worth watching.

This was the fight that burned in my memory. I didn't follow Naruto as much as many fans did but I always will remember this fight.

Longest fight in the Naruto Shippuuden series with a total of 8 episodes.

9 Kakashi vs Obito

Just such a good fight. The best in my opinion. Barely jutsu, just a good shinobi hand to hand combat. The animation is so on point, the background story and with the music, its just masterclass. Short but spicy. couldn't ask for more


Litteraly one of the best choreographed fights in the whole entire anime second only to sasuke vs sasuke come on the intesity of this fight is incredible! @#$#@! @#$%

Strong animation, not much flashy jutsu just heavily driven by their emotions and fighting skill

10 Sasuke & Itachi vs Kabuto

Loved when the brother fought beside each other. Wanted more but instead Itachi stayed his final godbyes to Sasuke!

The ending almost made me cry

Most touching fight in Shippuden

Best fight so far


The Contenders

11 Kakashi vs Pain

Kakashi going down like a true bad ass, even though pain won, kakashi really showed what a real skilled shinobi he is

When they met, Pain was courteous and Kakashi was rude. The results of their fight: Pain 1, Kakashi 0

Kakashi always showing skill

Pain 1 Kakashi 0

12 Minato vs Tobi & Kyuubi

Definitely in my top 3 favorite fights

This battle was worth top three ratings

This got to be in the top 10!

It wasn't tobi it was obito uchiha and kyuubi's name is kurama

13 Hashirama vs Madara


My god this should be in top ten, like the previous guy said, those two are gods!

Gods Are fighting not Ninjas

The battle between possibly the two most powerful ninjas.

14 Sasuke vs Danzo

DANZO is One of my favorite characters, he's very complicated and the Fight between him and Sasuke is One Of The Greatest FIGHTS In Naruto Shippuuden!

This is one of the most clever fights in the series. This fight proves that there is at least one guy who is as intelligent as Shikamaru: Sasuke. I waited for this fight for long since Itachi died. This one basically established Sasuke as a power to be reckoned with and killed one of the filthy characters of the show: Danzo.

Awesome skills! Danzo show what he can do!

Key battle between the man who SPOILER ALERT... forced itachi to kill the uchiha clan vs the survivor

15 Sasuke Uchiha vs Deidara

The fight was ok, but I have always hoped Deidara would kill Sasuke's ugly and overrated ass. I hate him with a passion.

After all art is a BLAST

Best last words of both Naruto and Naruto Shippuden (Not including reanimation)

Deidara was the best he should have won that fight but I was satisfied with it I meen ART IS AN EXPLOSION

16 Sasuke vs Killer Bee

Killer Bee pretty much killed Sasuke. After the other pansy arse jinchuriki, nice to see one where they own.

This fight was awesome and showed Killer Bee awesome and showed him kick Jugo and Suigetsu ass

Frames per minute: 6000

Sasuke did an awesome job as an akatsuki

17 Tobi/Madara Uchiha vs Konan

This was amazing... Konan really proved herself outdid her counterparts... Obito really should have died...

Music was awesome! Konan also best female in series!

Two men with girl?

Konan fought obito...we know it but it is written Madara uchiha because obito calls himself as there it doesn't mean konan fought obito and the real madara uchiha.N it was the best fight in the anime

18 5 Kage vs Madara Uchiha

This was truly the fight that showed how powerful mascara truly is. And the fact The he wasn't even going full power until the very end made this guy even crazier! Top 5 at least

This battle is awesome, and it shows that even though the Hidden Villages have had their struggels, the Kage can work together, and put up an awesome fight.

My favorite fight is Madara Uchiha vs 5 kage

19 Naruto Uzumaki vs Kakuzu

One of the Best Plot Armor in the series
Including Obito, Pain, Neji, Gaara & all

I rooted for Kakuzu. Didn't give a hoot about Naruto.

All naruto really does in this fight is use around 9 shadow clones and used Rasen-shuriken twice.

Bro you the man

20 Gaara vs. Deidara

Deidara is a love at 1st sight for me, and in this fight he is a real showstopper. Flying on his clay birds, mobilizing clay creatures that explode on command, elusive, and clever. I'm pleased that he was victorious over Gaara, and that Deidara survived this battle. A most exciting fighter. - Crwth

Exciting aerial battle. Deidara swift and elusive, with clay creatures and explosions, and Gaara commanding the sand!

I would like this fight a lot more if Gaara won but he put up a great fight he would of won if it weren't for the Sand Village and at least Gaara was shown

Great fight! Gaara's sand shield will block Deidara's C3 Ohako! Even though some of the village people hated him, Gaara put up a good fight while protecting the village from giant nukes! And in the end, he still used his chakra and put effort to erase the sand covering the village.

21 Might Guy Gate of Death vs Madara Uchiha 10 Tails Jinchuriki

This battle is very short and straightforward by Naruto standards, having a distinctly different feeling too. The Inner Gates technique was introduced as early as during the chunin exams arc, and here we finally saw it full power, with Kakashi admitting himself weaker than his rival and Gaara watching with eyes wide open, understanding how close he was to be killed in that famous fight. Guy was used as a comic relief as much as a fearsome jonin, but seeing him sport one last winning smile, sacrificing his life with no second thoughts and proceeding to brutalize the god Madara has become was easily one of the most epic moments of Naruto.

The battle was cheapened a bit by Naruto saving Guy and Madara regenerating the fatal wounds in a second. That added nothing to the story.

He doesn't have a some kind of special eye or some deus ex machina power up from some one. He is the pure form of dedication and hard working. He is the most powerful character of naruto.

Best fight of whole shippuden and the most underrated one..I just wanted the creator to be a little more creative and gave might guy justice..I think he should have made gate of death more if a person open all 8 gates no jutsu will work on him..that would have been so satisfying to watch..Even naruto fanboys would compliment that fight..

Why this is not top 10?

22 Sasuke vs Deidara and Tobi

A showcase for Deidara with his incomparable skills and striking appearance. A pity that it ended so badly.

That look on Deidara's face!

Sasuke used hi brains for frist time

23 Asuma Sarutobi vs Hidan

People seem to forget about the great emotions behind this fight, and the animations in this fight was quite cool, the most emotional and thrilling fight in my opinion!

It's still too soon to talk about it

Nah this fights to emanational to watch

24 Sasuke vs Raikage

Was a good fight you saw the anger that Ay The Raikage felt towards Sasuke

25 Guy vs Kisame

Getting to see guy open the 6th gate was epic

26 Orochimaru vs Naruto

Four tails really is strong but its ultimate jutsu (beast bomb) can't get through 3 gigantic shields (rashomon)

Naruto unleashed the 4 tails

27 Minato vs Madara

Madara as in the masked man/obito

This never happen

28 Might Guy vs Madara Uchiha

Seriously this fight is epic much better than pain vs naruto because in that pain didn't want to kill Naruto he had to capture him alive otherwise Naruto would be dead for sure. But I is legendary guy shows fluid ultimate power and even though he almost does the fight was a fight to death salute to guy in using his eight gate he knew it was absolutely necessary and even madara acknowledged his power by calling guy the best there was no chance madara could even land an attack due to guy's speed

Might guy beat the crap out of Madara Uchiha with the 8th gates gate of death the night guy

The most epic battle of Fourth Shinobi world war!...The only battle with Madara in the war in whuch he actually his ribs cracked! Man! Might guy seriously kicked Madara's ass...and Madara actually accepted the fact! lolz!

During the war I think this was but anyways when guy opened the eighth gate that was just insanneee

29 Naruto vs Neji

Best naruto fight.

Had a lot of meaning

Naruto defeats neji through sheer willpower

Naruto's first fight where all the people get a glimpse of his true power.

30 Lee (Drunk) vs Kimimaro

Kimimaro was just like :|

I think it deserves to be added :D It isn't the most thrilling, nor the most emotional, but it is one of the funniest fights ever! The part where Lee pretended to sleep twice...had me tearing up in laughter

31 Madara vs Shinobi World

Best animation in the show next to obito vs. kakashi and the tension and suspense was perfect. best way to introduce an op character ever

How tough was it for hashirama to fight this unstoppable foe madara is too powerful + he was just trying out new jutsu after jutsu even though he could have destroyed earth itself

The title is enough

This just shows how badass madara is
Madara Uchiha=the ultimate ass kicker + indestructible

32 Kaguya Õtsutsuki vs Obito and Team 7 (Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, Kakashi Hatake)

The best teamwork of team 7. I even forgot that Sasuke has the amenojikara thing or whatever its called (the move where he can teleport) I was like what just happened when I saw it in the manga but I understand it now. The best battle of team 7 with the best teamwork!

Naruto and Sasuke kicked Kaguya's ass with a little help from Kakashi

This fight is good

33 Kakashi vs. Zabuza

This was team 7's first real fight

This was boring

It was an epic fight. it showed us kakashi copying all of zabuzas moves. it was the first time the sharingan was showed.

34 Naruto vs Sakura

Shippuden Naruto can kill Sakura in his sleep

Sakura sucks naruto shouldve killed her

Sakura wins every time haha bitch slaps fa days

35 Naruto vs Gaara

Naruto summoning the giant frog which amazed sasuke... I liked it

This fight was one of the best I'm surprised it's this low

The ending bit where he punched gaara was cool

36 Naruto, Jiraiya, Tsunade vs Orochimaru, Kabuto

Orochimaru is so strong he can take on two of the Legendary Sannin while his arms are sealed

Jirayia couldv'e killed Orochimaru easily. He didn't use sage mode or summon the other massive toads.

37 Sasuke vs The Five Kages

Against all of the kages! Raikage sacrificed his left arm, Gaara used sand bullets things, Mizukage was melting Sasuke's skin and Tsuchikage even used an ultimate jutsu that can kill people instantly! Even Gaara and Raikage's bodyguards got into the fight along with Sasuke's team taka (suigetsu and Jugo) But the real fun part comes after that. Sasuke only has to concentrate on Danzo that time, which made it more interesting because karin and tobi didn't really help much.

That battle was EXTREME! Sasuke almost blinded himself in that fight.

Very under rated this is the first battle where the other Kage were involved and all their just I and sasukes were awesome. Also it revealed many things at the resolution of the fight

Sasuke took Kage after Kage how can you not like this fight

38 Shikamaru vs Hidan

One best fights for the supporting cast

39 Naruto Uzumaki vs Toneri Ostsutsuki

Toneri Otsutsuki must be the first person in Naruto to use energy beams (he is really strong. He cut the moon in half! ) unlike DBZ most characters fly and shoot beams and do the same attacks and stuff they're too OP but lets not get to the movie where frieza destoryed the world with just one slam. Even Toneri can't do that but he wants to destroy the world, which makes it more interesting

They sliced the moon in HALF!

40 Naruto vs Kyubi

This was a one-sided fight the Ninetails literally just did 3 attacks. One of the attacks he attacks a few Shadow Clones and the other two were the Tailed Beast Ball and he didn't even get to fire one of them.

41 Kisame vs Killer Bee
42 Kakashi Hatake vs Naruto & Sakura
43 Itachi and Nagato vs Naruto and Bee
44 Naruto, B, Kakashi, Guy and Kuruma vs Obito, the two tails, three tails, four tails, sixth tails, and seven tails

Kurama + Naruto? Gotta love that.

45 Rock Lee vs Shinra

Even for a filler fight, deserves to be much higher

46 Naruto vs Guy
47 Naruto vs Kurama

The appearance of kushina was impressive... One of important fights in Naruto's life

48 Madara vs 1st Hokage Hashirama

Two strongest people before apperience of hagaromo

They cut so much out of the anime version, that this battle was completely forgotten in the manga. They only showed bits and pieces in flashbacks, until finally, the decided to cut the best parts and skip right to the showdown with madara's death. This battle rivals the Pain vs Naruto fight! You'd be surprised by reading thr manga to find out how awesome this fight was!

This is the most epic battle!

49 Yugao vs Hayate

In my opinion this is the most emontial fight and is one of the best it has good a good backstory and is enjoyable

50 Naruto and Sasuke vs Ten Tails Jinchuuriki

This Fight has the Best teamwork between Naruto and Sasuke

This fight is exellent in all

Which ten-tails Jinchuricki? Obito or Madara? doesn't matter, they were good and their powers were even!
