Top Ten Naruto Shippuden Fights

The Top Ten
1 Nagato/Pain vs Naruto Uzumaki

I honestly vote this fight the best as it showed a lot of emotion and also a lot of action. The time when Naruto jumps in front of Tsunade to save her from one Pain and then tells her to rest and drink tea shows how confident he was. I really loved this as it showed Naruto's love for his sensei Jiraiya and tells us to respect our sensei.

It is the most emotional fight in Naruto this the fight between jiraiya's or Percy sages students one who will bring peace is Naruto and one who will bring suffering to the humanity is Pain the former student of jiraiya who killed him and Naruto swore revenge on pain for destroying his leaf village, killing Kakashi sensei and jiraiya the pervy sage.

Village gets destroyed, Naruto comes and beats pain, gets a love confession from Hinata, meets his father and gets recognized by the village. The best character arc Naruto could have gotten and possibly the best arc of the anime.

Best villain, best fight, best arc. Loved hearing about his reasoning and his plan to use tailed beasts as "superweapons" that will become deterrents to war, like real world nuclear weapons.

2 Sasuke Uchiha vs Itachi Uchiha

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

Everything about this fight was awesome it was breathtaking,action-packed and also emotional. It showed the relationship between the brothers along with some intricate planning in the battle. The whole first part of the battle was entirely genjutsu and it wasn't owerwhelmed with MEANIGLESS chatter like almost all the other battles it also answered a lot of unspoken and spoken questions. it gave us a sense of satisfaction and even developed the characters in the midst of the battle. It showed us a perfectly good reason for Itachi losing and white zetsu asked the questions we did and black zetsu answered them. It affected sasuke's charecter even more than orochimaru's fight against him which caused him to leave Konoha it was also relevant to FUTURE arcs and not just the current one. It well surpasses naruto v pain which WAS epic but not as unique or original or even emotional as this one. I also have MANY more reasons but I made my point if I ramble any longer people will think I'm over ...more

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..

I can't vote for any other fight. This fight is what we expected all from part 1. It starts with genjutsu and even the watcher thinks is in one. Then they move on to ninjutsu (Katon, Kirin) and Itachi has a Susanoo. An excellent fight, that I have read and watched numerous times. + it is really emotional. "Fated battle between the uchiha brothers". My two favorite characters got to fight each other...
Also, the fight Naruto vs Sasuke (the final one) is epic as well.

3 Jiraiya vs Nagato/Pain

Very awesome fight seeing the full colors of jiraiya's prowess. I think it was very cool being able to see jiraiya fight harder than he ever has. He has lived for a very long time and seeing fight till the very end brought tears to my eyes. I very much loved this fight and believe it to be one of the best fights in Naruto.

P.S. I find it the 2nd most emotional fight. 1st being itachi vs. sasuke, but nevertheless it is truly amazing

Best awesome fight. But sad ending.. Made me cry. Jiraiya the legend in the series gone down. It is my favourite battle. As Jiraiya wanted to know the truth even when he had a chance to escape

It was awesome and epic, killed by his own apprentice, saddest death, drowning into deep ocean, fought really hard till lose his hand. A great scene of fight�" dark, rainy, silent, amegakure is adorable. An awesome past, his journey, with his apprentices.

Showed tons of cool and strong jutsu (like Jiraiya's TSUNAMI OF BOILING OIL) and what a total badass Pain is. There was no talk no jutsu or other deus ex machina �" just a hard-fought battle with a sad ending for my favorite character.

4 Naruto vs Sasuke

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!

The final battle of the series! Everything came down to this and it did not disappoint (in my opinion). So many emotions, well animated taijutsu fights, super powerful ninjutsu attacks, and the part after the physical fight was simply amazing. Should easily be top 3.

This fight clearly defines the whole series into this last fight, with good Tai jutsu, epic susanoo and nine tails mode with awesome animation worked into it, with necessary flashbacks and a nice touch with the Rasengan by shinobi allies! Best fight Ever!

The anime's extra part of the battle was so much better than the manga. Who would've expected to use Sasuke to use Kirin (the move where he controls the lightning from the sky to hit the opponent) when he was down and still?

5 Kakashi vs Obito

This was an epic, emotionally fight. I literally get chills every time I watch it. The music and the animation just make it a masterpiece. By far one of the most epic fights for me.

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

This fight was a real raw ninja fight, just a 1v1, and probably one of the best drawn in the series. It was staged well too as there were moments of each person getting the upper hand, and it wasn't just a test of who had the more powerful jutsu, but who was more quick witted, thought on their feet, and easily the one I couldn't take my eyes off of when it happened.

This is probably the greatest fight there was in Naruto Shippuden. It wasn't drawn out too long, everything was paced easily and the animation was spot on between the flashbacks and the present. I don't get how this isn't in the top 5.

6 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.

After Shikamaru got "his" blood taken from Hidan, with any other character, I would've said "they're dead. " But the whole time, while I was watching Shika, I knew that he had some awesome plan thought out. No way would the same move work on him twice. And I was right. Shikamaru is awesome, and I think this is his best fight yet.

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

7 Sakura Haruno & Chiyo vs Sasori

Sasori vs Sakura and Chiyo is one of the most underrated fights in the series. The fight made them look like fighting ninja, not gods. This was one of the smartest battles of Shippuden. It was complex, with a lot of components, and was executed with finesse.

Still one of the coolest fights this series has. It was like the 1st Big battle of the show. Also it gave us a great look into the backstory of an Akatsuki member (other than Itachi). Not to mention how, like many people already said, it's seemingly the longest fight Shippuden has to offer. However, it didn't feel draged on. Honestly speaking, the clash of Sasori and Chiyo/Sakura was fully entertaining. And its not even that its such an important battle it was just pit so well with perfect amount of discussion, action, flashbacks, and even switching to the other scenes of what else was happening during the battle.

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.

No other fight in the whole Naruto series has been as good as this. 8 episodes of pure awesomeness, Chiyo fights his beloved grandson who is now an akatsuki member, is the fourth strongest akatsuki (Kishimoto), and is almost immortal. A fight with a really dark and creepy mood due to the human puppets and the way sasori feels proud about collecting peoples bodys for his use alltogether with the surprise that sasori is a puppet himself, making him an almost invencible foe. The backstory and conclusion is the cherry of the cake, the way sasori made the puppets of his parents and he used to made them hug him to feel loved was the only memory that sasori had to feel human and not entirely a mass murderer nonliving thing. And, on a moment of epicness that was just the way he died, on an eternal hug as his parent's puppets (used by Chiyo) stabbed him in the heart side to side of sasori. Sasori couldve dodged the last attack (as Chiyo said) but he didn't, showing that he wanted to die, maybe ...more

8 Gaara vs Lee

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.

I think this fight is beautiful for a very interesting reason. The two showcase very different sides of the spectrum, even in how they fight. Gaara completely relies on Ninjutsu, while Lee completely relies on Taijutsu. And their personalities are exact opposites. The length of the fight worked perfectly due to the combination of Lee's backstory, which is something later fights in the series lack. The most beautiful part is how the fight doesn't follow the Shonen trope of Lee pulverizing Gaara just because of willpower and all that stuff. It ends with a harsh look at reality, and sets up Gaara as a dangerous opponent. Lee couldn't land a hit, and that was really what worked.

Overall, the best fights in the series were in the Chuunin Exams, and I think this one certainly deserves higher than the fights above it. This fight had duality at its finest, and didn't rely on showcasing a new power every two seconds for the impact.

As said previously, this fight is iconic. Not only is the animation badass, the emotional juxtaposition and dynamic of the combatants made the fight interesting. In one corner there is Rock Lee; someone with no Ninjustu capabilities and relies only on his hands, feet, and perseverance to overwhelm his foes. In the other there is Gaara; a kid raised with a blood thirsty demon tanooki inside of him. Neither of these characters were going to give up the fight, that is what made this the TRUE first all out fight in the anime and that is what makes this fight iconic.

This fight is iconic. It pretty much shows why Naruto is the greatest anime and series of all time. The incredibly strong bad guy (by that time) vs the weak one (unable to use ninjutsus) but with the determination and willpower of a true ninja, a ninja with the fire will. When I die the fight that I will most remember about Naruto is this one.

9 Kakashi vs Pain

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

Kakashi always showing skill

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

Pain 1 Kakashi 0

10 Hashirama vs Madara

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

The battle between possibly the two most powerful ninjas.

Gods Are fighting not Ninjas

Come on this made the forth ninja war guys. really # ya"ll gots to be kidding

The Contenders
11 Tobi/Madara Uchiha vs Konan

A badass fight. I think that it was a bit too short though. Konan is awesome. I think that she could take on any of the guys in the akatsuki.
I also like the Naruto vs orochimaru fight. It looks so realistic with out any asspull jutsus. I wish I could see a real fight between orochimaru and itachi that lasts more than 3 seconds!

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

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

I thought that obito fought konan not madara and tobi is not a real person!

12 Kisame vs Killer Bee
13 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!

This will no doubt be number one once all episdoes are complete and in English. Plot twists and its literally an 80 episode fight. The wait up to this made the fight even better. It's so great because you truly don't know how its gonna end.

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!

The hand to hand combat scenes with Obito and his jutsu are just so badass.

14 Sasuke & Itachi vs Kabuto

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

Fight was awesome! Just seeing sasuke and itachi fighting together takes it on a different level.
Ps- the ending made me cry...

The best fight in Naruto Shippuden
why its in 8! its should be in top 5

Most touching fight in Shippuden

15 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.

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.

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

Best battle

16 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.

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 powerful..like 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..

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.

Most emotional and inspirational fight.It is too hard to get criticized by all people and take them as SUPPORT.Must be number 1.Because it defines a NORMAL human's power of Hard Work and Dedication.

17 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

18 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

19 Sasuke vs Danzo

Amazing battle! But they introduced a jutsu in the fight which should've been done before. Also, Sasuke's Susano'o was amazing with the upgrade and the final part where Sasuke and Danzo stab each other Danzo says "I've still got one eye left. I win." WRONG! It turns out that Sasuke's genjutsu landed on him to think that he still had another chance to use Izanagi (without using Shisui's eye). So cool when they had revealed that! They were huffing and puffing after that!

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.

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!

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

20 Guy vs Kisame

Getting to see guy open the 6th gate was epic

21 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.

Madara looked immortal and stronger than even the likes of pain and that susano o though my god it can cut of mountains in a blink of an eye!

My favorite fight is Madara Uchiha vs 5 kage

22 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.

Probably one of the most exciting fights and its filled with action. Deidera is probably one of my favorite villains

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

He almost killed sasuke in this fight, what a destructive jutso by deidara

23 Naruto Uzumaki vs Kakuzu

Naruto matures during this fight and masters an s rank nin-Justu. Overall crazy fight considering everyone's reactions when he kicks kakuzu's 100 year old ass

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

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.

24 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

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

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

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

25 Minato vs Tobi & Kyuubi

That moment when minato threw his kunai and it went through tobi and then suddenly minato teleported to the kunai to rasengan him from behind... this scene shows what a badass minato is

This should be top 3 cause the back story is as o sad and it created the foundation of. Naruto's character

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

This battle was worth top three ratings
