Top Ten Most Powerful Ninjas In Naruto Shippuden

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.

He mastered Sage jutsu ( Jiraiya even couldn't ) He mastered controlling the nine tails chakra, He has developed several techniques adding to the Rasengan, Due to the nine tails he heals faster than others, The Sage of the Six paths gave him power adding to his strength, He has a lot of stamina along with chakra, He can use the Nine tails chakra to create numerous shadow clones thus enabling him to learn Jutsu/Technique faster than the average shinobi, And plus, he was meant to be the strongest Hero in the Anime so yeah

Will the hero ever lose to anyone? Ponder on the thought, other characters may be better thought of (itachi) but naruto can never lose

He was able to take down 5 of the tailed beasts which even madara could not do it or anyone the best with kurama if he had full power of kurama he would be stronger than the first hokage.

Naruto is dumb but strong and funny

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

Itachi is this high!?!? Are you kidding me?!? Tons of other characters lower on this list far surpass him like Madara Uchiha. Even though he was sick during his fight with Sasuke, Sasuke probably would've almost won had it been fair. By the end of the entire series, Sasuke has become stronger than almost everyone.

He is a genius, amazing at all types of jutsu, and is selfless. His true story is heartbreaking, I can't believe he made so many sacrifices for the people he cares for. He should be the most honored for what he done.

The genius of uchiha clan

As far as I remember Itachi had never been defeated. He let Sasuke kill him, because various reasons (making him seem like a hero, and giving him closure in his revenge, which motivated him his entire life etc.). I think that when measuring who is the strongest shinobi it's not just about jutsus and chakra etc. but rather about cleverness. Itachi might not have that huge amount of chakra as Naruto or Hagoromo but would still win in a fight against them. He utilizes his enemies weak points, has perfect understanding of both of their abilities and the battlefield, thus he is able to construct a battle plan. Once you're caught in his genjutsu there's really no escape anyway..

3 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, more.

Why is Madara always number 4 on every list?

He is unbeatable madara the king

The founder of uchiha clan

He was the most powerful human(shinobi) and comes after sage of six paths.
Only darkness lead him the wrong way otherwise the best shinobi.

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

Although he's a "genius", a majority of his power comes from the curse mark. He DID NOT kill Itachi, luckily Itachi was very sick which made it easier to fight with him. Sasuke didn't do the finishing blow, Itachi had a disease and collapsed (just to clear that up.) His power is equal to Naruto's. He's lucky he is from the Uchiha clan and without his eternal mangeko sharingan, rinnengan, and curse mark, he's toast.

Sasuke is only strong because of the cursed mark. Without it, Sasuke would have died pretty early in the series. So if we compare personal powers, he couldn't have come close to beating Itachi. - ilar9118

With rinnegan he is the best

In my opinion, his power grew too quickly. In the first episodes he's still a genin and in the next he kills Orochimaru.

Besides, most of his power comes from the curse mark, rinnegan, and sharingan. - Silverfroststorm

5 Sage of Six Paths

He should be number two and his mom 1

Well he is supposed to be the second

Well sins he is the first nisha that mean he is the strongest.

How is naruto stronger than him? Six sage gave naruto the Tenseigan and if not for him giving Naruto and Sasuke the seal Kaguya would have enslaved everyone in the infinite Tsukoyomi, kids just jumping on the band wagon. Kaguya should've been one and six sage 2 followed by hashirama and Madara tied 3rd

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

He can copy anyone's moves with his sharingan

Kakashi is a genius Copy Master

Although once he lost his Sharingan I think he shouldn't be in sixth. - Silverfroststorm

Kakashi is one of the rare ninjas who can use Susano'o + he can copy any move + and he does all of these and more while being a fun and pervert guy

7 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.

What the Hell's going in?!, how come minato is only added to to the list right now, the is one of the strongest ninjas ever, I mean ever and people compare him with hashirama.. He wiped out an entire platoon! In seconds! And was nicknamed yellow flash because he was so fast all you could see was a yellow flash due to his hair being blond,... In the ninja war, when he came to aid to leafs front battle he asked his remaining soldiers to throw some kunais all around and when asked why and another guy answered saying "shut up, you might see the yellow flash in action! Whatever you do don't blink or you've missed it", he took out a 1000 hidden stones soldiers at that time in mere seconds using FLYING THUNDER GOD technique, he was one of the main reasons leaf has a peace treaty with other villages because they were scared of him, when he took down the 1000 stone soldiers, I prompted the stones kage to get in peace with the leaf... HE IS THE FASTEST SHINOBI IN THE WORLD!, and even the ya the ...more

Hinata would probably win if minato didn't have the other half of kurama

Minato is stronger than Naruto his teleportation are just to awesome and he is very smart

Yeah Minato's pretty strong... I wish he hadn't died though! - Silverfroststorm

He is amazingly fast

8 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.

His ultimate defense is not better than sasuke but is also a attack

Lee almost beat him, and Lee isn't on this list. That's all I'm saying. - Silverfroststorm

Gaara should be in the top ten!

Garra can beat the 4th kazekage and became the fifth way sooner that Naruto. In two years, he made friends and is the kazekage

9 Hashirama Senju Hashirama Senju

He is God of shinobi. He defeated madara and kurama at a time. He has a unique wood style and most powerful chakra. He was able to heal himself without any sign. He must be on the top. #1

Hashirama should be number 1! Without Kurama Naruto isn't as strong. Hashirama doesn't need a tailed beast to kick any ones ass! He defeated Madara; what else needs to be said?

Why is he on the 11th? , he must be on top

Hashirama should be top 3, if not #1. He is the character Naruto was reincarnated after and is regarded as the strongest hokage that lived. If Naruto is #1, Hashirama has to be #2!

10 Jiraiya Jiraiya

He nearly managed to beat sage of six paths but didn't. He should be under the position of nagato

Jiraiya is most ninja ever he teaches Naruto he is In top 3 Position

Why jiraiya is in top 3 When itachi said they posses equal powers

Plus, he taught the 4th hokage, Naruto, and is one of the sannin

The Contenders

11 Kaguya Otsutsuki Kaguya Otsutsuki 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 more.

Stop a world war by herself and can kill everyone on this list

Having consumed the fruit of the God Tree, Kaguya achieved such unrivalled power that she was able to pacify the war-torn world all by herself, leading the people to worship her in fear.
I mean, WHAT?! - ilar9118

Powerful than Naruto and everyone don't believe me search it up

Why not this busty bitch

12 Sasori Sasori

Not that strong, but can match up to a hokage

13 Captian Yamato

He can use wood style jutsu which can only use by the first hokage.

14 Tsuande

She has the power to heal herself without using hand signs, making her almost immortal in combat. It was said that because of her, konoha won the second World War because of her. As she was healing her comrades while fighting at the front lines. Also ahe is a senju, first granddaughter of Hashirama "the God shinobi". She inherit hashirama's healing and monstrous strength.

Lol, whoever added her to this list misspelled her name. (Tsunade)

She's strong, but more of a defense ninja. - Silverfroststorm

5 Hokage

15 Obito Uchiha Obito Uchiha

How is obit lower then sasori and tsunade and gaara, this guy is amazing - Adamisback

He should be number 3

Um, why isn't Obito farther up? He can take on the entire Allied Shinobi forces by himself in his Juubi form. Not only that, but he has an amazing backstory. If it weren't for Obito, a) Naruto's parents would still be alive b) the Uchiha clan wouldn't have been wiped out, because they never would have wanted to revolt because Kurama never would have been summoned c) Sasuke probably wouldn't have left the village, because Orochimaru wouldn't have been so fixated on him, because the other Uchihas would have been alive d) Madara would never had been brought back from the dead e) the Akatsuki never would have turned evil, and Yahiko would still be alive.
Basically, if it weren't for Obito, almost none of the events in Part 1 would have happened, and none of Part 2 would have happened. Obito is an extremely strong character, and is outshined by only Naruto.

Why the duck is obito n.o 13? I mean he's beter than Kakashi and possibly Gaara and Sasuke. He can suck things in his eye goddamit!

16 Konohamaru Sarutobi Konohamaru Sarutobi

Doesn't deserve to be in the top ten but has potential. The anime doesn't really elaborate on Konohamaru. - Silverfroststorm

Not in the top 10 but with an amazing potential... managed to learn the Rasengan half the age of Naruto

Stronger that Naruto, and also surpasses him

...maybne not in Naruto, but one day Konohamaru might be a little badass: Part of Sarutobiclan, teached by naruto and grandson of the third. Who knows? We will see...

17 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 should be in top ten

He is one of the legendary sanin. He is a kage level ninja, almost unstoppable.

Orochimaru knows more justu than most of the kage do. He also took on Naruto in tail beast mode single handedly and barely broke a sweat.

18 Might Guy Might Guy

Should really b in the top 10 considering he was able to take on madara uchiha in his 10 tailed sage form.. He kicked his left side of his body off.. No one else would have survived that

Deserves the top 10, instead of Sakura who deserves this 17th spot

In his hidden lotus state he killed itachi partner I don't know his name though.

I my opinion top five!

19 Sakura Sakura Sakura Haruno is the main heroine of the series "Naruto Shonen Jump!" and Naruto Shippuden. She is the only female ninja of Team Seven. Her family consists of her mother, Mebuki Haruno and her father Kizashi Haruno. Her clan is likely not very well known around Konoha and up until "Boruto: Naruto Next more.

Always watches people fight to protect her. Naruto always protects her and loves her, still she goes for a partially evil guy who hates her.

Super strength and chakra control. That's it. Really? Weak useless little crybaby.

She has the super strength

Although she was a burden in Naruto, she grown out of it and she became a powerful shinobi. Sakura ahieved the 100 healings mark byakugo that only three people earned (which includes herself.) She also defeated an Akatsuki member and surpassed Tsunade. She's not a crybaby anymore, she more like Tsunade. I guess you can say she turned into Tsunade because of her monstous strength, medical ninjutsu, and personality.

20 Asuma

His knuckle dusters could easily take down Itachi and kisame together, he died because he was to ooverpowered and it wouldn't be fair on everyone else. He is also the only match against Choji; who is renowned as the new sage of the six paths.

He have very rare wind Chakra

21 Nagato Nagato

Why isn't nagato anywhere high? I mean he's far beyond Jiraiya, Tsunade and pretty much the whole leaf village.

22 Shikamaru Nara Shikamaru Nara Shikamaru Nara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

How troublesome

He's the most intellegent character in all of the Naruto series.

23 Neji Hyuga Neji Hyuga

He died for the ones he loved, he didn't have too. He could have had a successful career ahead of him. He died proud and happy with his choice. He died as a true shinobi and hero

24 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 more.

He has the most powerful ocular sharingan. He is much more powerful than itachi.

It's not the sharingan that make the shinobi though
and just with his skills itachi would kill him easily but it's his friend so...

Mentor of Itachi. Itachi is one of the top ninja and everything is learned is from Shisui. he even said Shisui is superior to him. if you took his death road life, Shisui would have been the leader of the Uchia clan and suprass mostly any ninja by his skillset.

25 Tobirama Senju Tobirama Senju

Best of suiton users, invented a lot of techniques, which are commonly used by naruto (kage bushin), orochimaru (edo tensei) or teleportation jutsu used by Minato, he could summon vast amount of water out of nowhere, and he is renowned as a fastest ninja in his time plus he was highly intelligent, I think he should be in top ten

26 Hidan Hidan

Although he dies pretty early his power is OP he is already skilled at using that scythe of his, All he has to do is get the slightest drip of blood on the victim and himself and just stab the body part where he wants to strike ( It only affects the victim )

If he wasn't so stupid he would be the strongest shinobi that ever lived

27 Rock Lee Rock Lee

When he is drunk and uses hidden lotus, he is unstoppable.

28 Sarutobi-Sensei

3 Hokage

Very strong

29 Indra Ôtsutsuki

I mean he is the one who used the chakra as a weapon for the first time and he is probably better than kaguya!

30 Tenten Tenten
31 Kisame Hoshigaki Kisame Hoshigaki

He is the best water chakra user

He is also called as the tailess jinjuriki

32 Hinata Hyuga Hinata Hyuga Hinata Hyuga is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

Hinata is the best and 100 percent better in everything than sakura.

She is really hot

She is kinda hot

33 Juubi (Shinju)

The being that held all the chakra and was the fusion of the tailed beasts

34 Ay
35 Gamatatsu
36 Ino Yamanaka Ino Yamanaka

Ino Yamanka was very intelligent in the chunin exams against Sakura and still is now, she pretended to use the mind transfer justsu and hardly seemed to be a birden. With her team, (the powerful Ino-Shika-Cho) they are very powerful (aka, Team Asuma), they defeated Kakazu and Hidan togeter and they all have fine ranged attacks. Those three have a good friendship though little screen time. they are a powerful trio in the shinobi world, as every brave shinobi is, they are powerful like the Ino-Shika-Cho.

37 Kabuto Yakushi Kabuto Yakushi
38 Sai

He is good
