Most Powerful Naruto Characters

The Top Ten

1 Uzumaki Naruto Uzumaki Naruto

Are you kidding me. He is so far the only person to ever defeat pain besides Itachi, but even better than Itachi he has access to virtually unlimited power of the Kyuubi, meaning he can use his most powerful techniques over and over with multiple clones. Keep in mind that he is maintaining several if not dozens of clones at one time for most of the battles in the 4th Shinobi War. His techniques also have the most raw power, and can overcome pretty much anybody, only thing to worry about would be protecting friends. He beats taijutsu obviously with his speed and strength, then also beats any genjutsu as kurama can knock him out of it. Finally only Obito or Madara's ninjutsu could be beat him, and since Kabuto's gone he is the only one with access to senjutsu (sage mode) anymore, and he can still sense not only nature energy but also negative feelings, making it impossible to hide from him.

I looked online and saw future abilities Naruto gets. Sorry Naruto is the strongest hands down. - mgsfan

Okay. Let's see here. In the series it's state all 9 beast tails create the tens correct me if I'm wrong.

Naruto has unique chorka on his own and great stamina, and he never give up. He care more for the people, then his self, he is very selfless. He over comes obstacles and fighting for everyone even though they was poorly to him in the beginning of the series, he has heart of gold.

And the 9 tails second mode

He has sage mode, and half of the sage of six path.

Almost of all: his the main character, so eventually he gonna surpassed everyone in the show.

Don't get me wrong I like Sasuke He is an awesome character him and Naruto are my favorite. I like both of them the same. They are both well thought out characters and both really powerful. It's a great story.

To be honest there is always gonna be show or character more powerful and stronger. It's a Fantasy show!

Like one day their probably gonna make a character stronger then superman. ...more

He is the best he beat pain he could've killed sasuke and almost killed pain

2 Uchiha Itachi Uchiha Itachi

Itachi was a one of a kind ninja had the best Genjutsu, most powerful defense and offence (susanoo), and had incredible speed when it came to hand sighns, the only thing he lacked was his stamina. As you all now he had a sickness and thats what made his life stamina low, and he tried to take various medicines just enough to stay alive and die by the hands of sasuke. Other than that if itachi hadn't had the sickness he would've never die or be that weak but it was his little brother so he had to sacrafice himself for his brother for what he did to the clan. And one last thing, all of you people out there saying uchiha madara is the strongest ninja of all, you guys have to read the manga more thoroughly even uchiha madara said "That Itachi... even in death he never ceases to amaze me. " At that time itachi died but he implanted Amaterasu into sasuke just so sasuke doesn't meet madara.

In the Chapter 548 its stated he along with Nagato is the most powerful of all Edo Tenseis. That means he is stronger than the Tschikage, Raikage, Hanzo Mizukage, Kazekage and so on. Itachi also defeated Orochimaru twice, the first time without looking and turned his back on him, the second time when he fought against Sasuke a death battle and were worn up it took him minutes to defeat him without get touched. So further Orochimaru, someone who defeated Jiraya tried sneaky tricks to get him because Itachi is far too strong for him. So the Sanins are no match for him. Itachi also defeated the most powerful characters with relative ease and not getting seriosly injured or even touched, like Deidara, Kakashi, Asuma. With his Sharingan he could take control of peoples, stated by Ao, at long range, he even didn't need to fight directly with someone to win. Everyone says he would lose to Jiraya that's not true because he was deep in his heart a full blood Konoha ninja and wanted to protect ...more

Uchiha Itachi... Lets put it simply
Yata's mirror (reflects every attack) + Sword of totsuka ( Ultimate offense and eternal genjutsu one shot ) + Susanoo = GAME OVER
ya... Just check the facts its obvious he was literally stated to be invincible in the manga by zetsu who looks to be tobi's right hand man even tobi was afraid of itachi... Yes the man who runs akatsuki.. Furthermore itachi was a hero of konoha so anything he said about jiraiya was to really just avoid having to fight him so that no casualties would take place for the leave I mean honestly did you see how easily itachi took down orochimaru a legendary sannin... I have no doubts at all that itachi could completely wipe the floor with any ninja... Mainly because of those 2 spiritually enhanced items itachi has attached to his susanoo.. Which makes him invincible
and just to clarify
Invincible Definition: incapable of being conquered, defeated, or subdued.
ya so its done... Itachi is the most powerful

He is a good good fight but he do bad bad thing I think he smart smart but sometime he no like naruto he worse enemy spongebob but that bad bad I like spongebob

3 Uchiha Sasuke Uchiha Sasuke

Sasuke has been able to fight opponents and keep his own while exhausted, battered and bruised. I mean he defeated 1000 shinobi without getting much injuries. He has great intelligence which helps him in battles and making strategies. He has the blood of the Uchiha granting him the gift of the sharingan, which later is upgraded to Rinnegan. This allows him to create genjustu and can see more advanced than the regular eye. There are much more abilities that come with this gift but I don't want to search it all up. Not only that but he awakened his sharingan at age 7, although not being able to recall it. He also learned the fireball jutsu and Kakashi's chidori at an early stage. He fought many strong opponents and beat one of the akatsuki. And his speed is unbelievable. From what I know his speed is intant, like teleporting but I don't know how far he can go since people say he can only teleport to a certain distance. He is great with swords and can use both his left and right hand. ...more

He was the best member of team 7, and he was even able to use fire ball jutsu against Kakashi so early!

Sasuke is an amazing Ninja. Face it, if your WHOLE village was murdered by your brother, and you suffered through it all, and still were alive and strong, you're pretty amazing. Yeah, Naruto had to deal with being hated on, but so did Sasuke, plus his village slaughter. In my eyes, Sasuke is a strong character, both physically, mentally, and emotionally. Plus he's just a bad ass...

Ok, rage over. But seriously, I understand a 72 volume series is a big commitment, and they don't have the entire series on Netflix, (I don't even know if they have the last 3 books anime in English), but seriously, Sasuke is stronger than Itachi. And eventually, even Naruto. - DBZ_Precure_Naruto_BB_Furuba

4 Uchiha Madara / Tobi

Damn he's the best he got the ressengaen he got everything in 1 he dodged itatchis chat implanted on sasuke you pops out of now where he can disappear in a wave of a hand I use to think itachi was the 1 but after seeing this bitch nope TOBI ROCKS OBITOBI

he is the real leader of the akatsuki, akatsuki, the strongest organization and the s-class criminal.

Alright let's get something straight, madara and tobi are two completely different people. Tobi is actually obito kakashi's childhood friend, he also starts the moons eye plan. Madara is one of the founders of the leaf that fought hashirama senju and lost, but he has been reanimated by kabuto in the anime and is currently the strongest in the anime.

I only voted for this one because he's tobiramas rival were's tobirama he should be second

5 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 more.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! When the Sage of 6 paths the undisputed strongest character of a show in a top ten list is the very last at 10(LMAO) then that pretty much says everything you need to know about the validity and intelligence of both the site and the people voting on the contents of that site. So6P is #1 by a mountain and anything less is comical. This site is hilarious.

The Sage of Six paths is friends with the 9 tails and it will do anything he wants basically. He also beat the 10 tailed beast and put it in the god damn moon, therefore he's the strongest, Naruto may control the 9 tails but I think the guy that put the 10 tails in the moon could beat the nine tails and Naruto.

He is undoubtedly the single most powerful person in the series I mean come on he created jutsu he was the first shinobi and he controls the tailed beasts and not to mention made them easy win he'd kick everyone's asses.

Sage of six paths should be number 1 the show itself said he's the strongest

6 Hatake Kakashi

Graduated at age 5, chunin at age 6 then jonin at age 13 and ANBU. Enough said. + he is known as the best sharingan user + teacher of naruto and sasuke his sensei was the saver of the village (yellow flash Minato) so it would be stupid to put him at top 9 he deserves at least top 3

Um, hello people. Have you even READ the manga? Kakashi is the second strongest, having to deal with everyone who died that was close to him. He was the Copy Ninja, the master of over 1000 jutsus. Sasuke, Itachi, Madara, Shikamaru, Jiraiya, Pein, and the Fourth Hokage don't got nothing on this bitch.

man kakashi trained sasuke and naruto he was trained by the forth was in the anbu he is a jonin fought itachi pain hidan kakuzu and deidara and lived no other ninja can say that he is beast

He is one of the best three man

7 Hagoromo Ootsutsuki

True the only we have to go on is word of mouth.

How can we vote for this guy we no nothing about his abilities.

Yeah the only time we have seen him is in a vision and we've never seen him in a single fight

8 Pein

Nagato could never have defeated naruto in the shape he was in during their main fight. He was too weak and ill. The only reason naruto got to talk to him was simply because he was able to defeat his other peins, that's what intrigued him, nothing else. I agree with this list almost exactly and itachi and naruto and everyone above pein is definitely stronger than him hands down. Even in his prime after he was reincarnated was defeated by itachi, bee, and naruto. And mainly only itachi and naruto, bee was losing his fight. Plus the second itachi came back into the fight it was over instantly. I'm sorry pein is a great ninja in the manga, but he definitely belongs around top 10

He is very powerful. It is a fact that the rinnegan is by far the most powerful dojutsu. He can block or absorb all jutsu and can do all changes in chakra nature. Plus he can control the gedo statue which can suck out the souls of anyone just by touching them

Pein is god such a epic character in the story if you look at him you will find that he regrets everything even he regrets his own Pein he moves through such immense pain I life that he overcomes pain now ow nothing could stop him not even his own pain this is just a story if someone like pein really exit then nobody can able to defeat him not even god but in the story as you know it pein was defeated by the hands of Naruto

Nagato was stronger than madara. ( my opinion)

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.

For all you idiots
Yondaime hokage and minato namikaze is the same person

He actually went toe to toe with Tobi/Fake madara uchiha and probably could have won he's the fastest ninja and no one really killed him he gave up his life to seal the nine tails and save the leaf village like a boss. - Batman-

Come'on people, Minato borders on OP with the flying god technique. Plus, he was able to seal the nine-tails in Naruto by himself; wrecked Madara in a straight-up 1v1; teleport pure chakra blasts from the nine-tails. It's also stated through-out the anime that Minato is one of the strongest ninjas that ever lived. He should definitely be in at least the top 5.

10 Hashirama Senju Hashirama Senju

You just can't defeat hashirama in his era, his sage mode is so strong and an addition to that he has an automatic healing jutsu which he could perform without using hand signs and his attacks are awesome. Everybody wanna to be like hashirama even madara...

Hahaa please! Hashirama was refered to as the GOD of shinobi. He was the ONLY person able to perform wood release; every other uses has HIS cells implanted into them, without him they wouldent be able to use it. Let's not forget he fought toe to toe with, and even defeated madara uchiha, the man who killed the 5 kage, in fact he was the only person madara respected. He tamed most of the tailed beasts, even the 9 tails and madara got the sharingan, mangekyou, eternal mangekyou sharingan and even brought the kyuubi with him just to beat madara, and he never stood a chance. He founded the hidden leaf villiage and his dna enables shisui's eye to be used once a day instead of once every ten years, izanagi to last up to minute, makes up half of obito and is what makes zetsu. Let's not forget that he's so awesome that everyone who uses his cells get his face growing on a part of their body, even madara! The guy is truly amazing and there is no doubt that he could defeat anyone who he is ...more

He is a legend, everyone look at him as a hero, even madara his greater ennemy. As told by someone, the 5 kage's had difficulty to fight madara, how can they fight madara and the 9th tail.. Hashirama is in the top 5 at least. I would say he is the and after the sage of the sixth path

Its wrong hashirama should be first

The Contenders

11 Yondaime Hokage

Yellow flash of the leaf is the best hands down he can travel through space time rifts fastest character and more powerfull then his son narruto in his prime (dead now) he could kill anyone with ease

After fighting both Tobi and The kyuubi he still had barley any scratches on him, the only reason he died was because he used the reaper death seal, and because he leaped into the way of kyuubis claws in order to protect Naruto.

Um why just why? MINATO is awesome and all but you realize that Minato and the Yondaime and the yellow flash or whatever you want to call him are the same person right (vote on Minato not Yondaime if your gonna vote for him)

You dumbass Minato and the Yondaime Hokage are the same guys, wuh duh

12 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 is just the best without question. You can't touch him, much less HURT him. His defense is the absolute best, next to the ridiculously OP susano'o. And, honestly, I think it's even better then that. If you let his sand get to you, you're dead instantly. And his tattoo, for those who don't know, says "love" and was engraved into his head by the sand that constantly shrouds and protects him.

To put it all simply, Gaara has the best attack, the best defense, the shortest temper, the AWESOME looks, a tattoo, and you ain't got on the guy. Gaara is just pretty much like god in naruto. An extremely few people can beat him on a good day. You can't touch him. Gaara is the best. End of conversation.


In my opinion Gaara is extremely strong, his defenses are just amazing. The fact that he could simply make new sand out of dirt, is just... Amazing. His sand is a defense yet also a powerful weapon, that gives him a upper hand to any fight.

*SPOILER to anime-only watchers*
He beat his Father, the 2nd Mizukage, and is fighting his ground against Madara Uchiha, and all on the same day. I've always known he would stay as one of the Top Dogs of Naruto, even though almost everyone else believed he was a weak scrap during his absence. HA WHAT NOW!?

I know most of you don't know but he also have magnet release which he inherented from his father which means that he can control gold sand as well and he can mix it with his ultimate defense to strengthen it even more
Which for the record he has never used in anime

13 Madara Madara

He is definitely one of the most badass and powerful in terms of strategy and power. In the end, while he got backstabbed by a zetsu, he will always be the most badass character!

Why is madara number 13 he is like the king of shinobi he could easily beat itachi

He was equal to Hashirama in strength and Hashirama was called the god of shinobi for a reason!

Should be 1.Madara

14 Kaguya Ootsutsuki

Looks like no one reads manga. If you do, you would vote for Kaguya. She is mother of Sage of the six paths and he said about her that she's stronger than him. And he was the strongest known shinobi from Naruto universe. She has incredibly powerful chakra, more powerful than Madara had in his Juubi-bijuu form. She can change a battlefield by her dimensional technic and she can walk through the dimensions, so practicly no one can harm her. She just can not be defeated by a single character in Naruto. I can't believe that she isn't on the top of this list. Like really, she can't be defeated by no one. 10 strongest characters would maybe defeat her, but together.

It toke multiple people to beat her and it was only just by luck that Naruto and Sasuke beat her. If kakashi and Obito weren't there to block off her attack she would have won.

It is clearly stated in manga that she is the mother of chakra and she master everything with it. But it's 16 in this list... Really? Stupid fun-boy

If you read manga you would definitely vote for Kaguya. Definitely stronger than Naruto, she's the one who is the Mother of all ninja, not the Sage of Six Paths. Byakugan and Sharingan. Naruto and Sasuke were really lucky and beat Kaguya by chance. She was the one who ate the chakra fruit from the God Tree, so her chakra is techincally all the ninjas in the ninja world combined.

She deserves to be number one, with the Sage of Six Paths as number two, Madara or Naruto as number three. - Silverfroststorm

15 Yakushi Kabuto

Kabuto said himself that he has now surpassed his former master orochimaru and the and the second hokage. He was able to persuade even madara to join forces by displaying only one jutsu and without his assistance madara probably wouldn't have stood a chance in the war.

Orochimaru even said that he was as powerful as kakashi hotake and he was able to make the fifth hokage terrified by slitting his own wrists.he is clever fire a start and he's an awesome medical ninja too.

16 Jiraiya Jiraiya

a true hearted guy who gave his whole life for village and was even more stronger than itachi he was the god

He should be in top 3. He got training from the 3rd hokage and he traind the 4rt hokage and 6th hokage. So he should one of the best. - Jirayasama

For starter's he was the one who trained naruto, he was originally suppose to be hokage before Tusnade, and he was on the legendary 3. And on the other hand even itachi said himself that Jiraiya can defeat him. - MJ2875

Cause I miss him ;c

17 Nagato Uzumaki Nagato Uzumaki

Able to use ALL of the Six Paths Of Pain jutsus by himself. He was single-handedly able to overwhelm both Naruto (in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode) and Killer Bee! If it wasn't for Itachi to step in and aid the two, Nagato would've killed them easily.

The man originally thought to be the child of prophesy. Wielding the rinnegan with almost unparalleled skill. He can use every path to its fullest. He is also a sensor and can fly.

People have ranked Six Paths Of Pain at 7 and the one who uses it in 30 (during the time I wrote this) -_-...Nagato must be at least in TOP 5!

Almighty pull and push
King of hell
Soul consuming
Jutsu absorbing
Summoning legendary animals
And chibaku tensei that can seal anything he shoukd be close to number 1

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.

Reborn with Hashirama's cells, returned access to his ability to use hand seals, and his sheer immortality, I think he could pose a threat to even the 7th Hokage.

This madman don t die.

Come on deserves to be in top 12 greastest villain ever!

Come on, he has outlived everyone, never showed his total potential and has an arsenal of justus. All in all he does whatever he wants. Nobody can bend or mend him.

Truly one of the most OP charcters, who is considered a threat by every shonobi land and a genius too, not any ordinary villain, he is an elite scientist and one of the few guys who gives a new definition to men with long balck hair.

You should listen to this theme, will literally scare you.
