The Top Ten
1 Sign by Flow - Shippuden #6

This song... Oh my god! It's amazing! Fantastic! The graphics are really good, the song itself is incredibly catchy, and the lyrics... They mean so much to me. I'm always singing this song every day. I find that the placement of the song and lyrics linking with Sasuke vs. Itachi is so emotional too. The feels!

Inventive graphics again and a creative and amazing spin on Naruto. There is so much more I want to say, but I'd probably end up repeating myself. I LOVE THIS SONG!

(MAJOR Spoiler Alert)

Amazing intro. Everything from top to bottom is perfect. My favorite part is when Jiraiya and Pain are battling on Mr. Gamaken. It's so emotional and will make you tear up near the end of the arc. The animation is really high quality as well. Probably the best opening there is, and ever will be. The song rocks too!

2 Silhouette by KANA-BOON - Naruto Shippuden #16

I like most of the Naruto Shippuden openings, but this one is the all-time best, no matter what you say. It has this upbeat rhythm to it, the instrumental is just brilliant, and it suits the 4th Great Ninja War arc so well. Plus, we were seeing Obito's story, so it fit in perfectly.

I also found the animation in the background to be a 10/10. Especially when you see Naruto running as he grows up. The imagery as he grows up just makes you appreciate the show even more because we have been with him every step of the way.

I just want to give some honorable mentions to 5 of the openings:
Opening 6
Opening 15
Opening 8
Opening 3
Opening 19

That's my review.

3 Haruka Kanata by Asian Kung-fu Generation - Naruto #2

I'm here to bring my AKFG support!

You guys don't understand how often I am singing this song!

So catchy!

We need more songs like this!

This opening is the one that got me into anime openings. Now I listen to Japanese rock bands like AKFG or Flow all the time.

Whenever I listened to this opening, I thought back to better times. I miss my childhood.

4 DIVER by NICO Touches The Walls - Shippuden #8

This opening does it all for me. The voice of the singer, the contrast of light and dark, falling into it and getting out of it. Simply beautiful.

Best Naruto opening song with the best meaning of what Naruto is all about! A child falling into darkness, then saved by friends and loved ones. Once saved, he gets ready and goes back to this darkness to save one friend! Definitely the best!

I really like Diver because it reminds me of many things. It also shows that no matter what, when Naruto loses hope, his friends will always be there for him and will help him not to fall into the darkness like Sasuke.

5 Blue Bird by Ikimonogakari - Shippuden #3

Love this song. Great memories about it. I've never watched Naruto, and I love this song!

If you didn't cry while listening to this, you're a monster.

The emotions, though. How is this not top 3, by the way?

6 GO!!! by Flow - Naruto #4

Favorite arc, and I think this opening just gives you the energy to dance and sing to it. Plus, the graphics perfectly match the song. I just love it.

No song fits Naruto better than this one! It really sets the mood for the show, and the graphics go with it perfectly!

It's just absolutely fantastic. The song is catchy, the graphics are fun and adorable, and it sets a good mood for the series in general.

7 Namikaze Satellite by Snowkel - Naruto #7
8 Hero's Come Back by Nobodyknows+ - Shippuden #1

After all the bad Naruto openings, you start up Shippuden, and you hear this? Best opening of all time, hands down. So hype. And the cool bit with the Akatsuki.

Best opening ever. Perfectly coordinated with the animation and a killer song. Pure energy and hype.

It was a bit odd hearing this extra hype song, but I've grown to love it.

9 Moshimo - Shippuden #12
10 Lovers by 7!!! Oops - Shippuden #9

While there definitely are some better openings on this list, I feel like this one is incredibly underrated. Seriously surprised it isn't higher up.

This song should be way higher up. It's so catchy and it's the perfect introduction to "Meet the Kages!" and their assistants.

This song should be way higher on this list!

The Contenders
11 Niwaka Ame Nimo Makezu by NICO Touches the Wall - Naruto Shippuden #13

Honestly, I prefer Diver, Haruka Kanata, and Silhouette, but this one needs more love, especially when it has such an amazingly animated action scene.

Also, can someone please tell me why Hero's Come Back is so high up? I just find it cringey with generally (not 100%) bad visuals.

Both visually stunning and musically appealing! Telling us to "seize the moment for yourself," this embodies Naruto as a whole.

This song rocks! For me, it is the best opening of all time for Naruto.

12 Yurayura - Hearts Grow

The only reason this isn't number 1 is because most people didn't watch the original series until the end.

It's the most underrated out of all the intros.

13 Tomei Datta Sekai by Motohiro Hata - Shippuden #7

Best one! Best opening ever! It's the first and only one that made me get so excited that I would start dancing and singing along with it every time.

Its build is phenomenal. From Jiraiya writing to Naruto clashing with Pain, everything gets intensified.

Wo-oh-oh-oh!

14 Seishun Kyosokyoku by Sambomaster - Naruto #5

The pure emotion of this one is excellent. It's a really good way of showing the irreparable rift growing between Naruto and Sasuke, as well as the introduction to the mission to bring him back.

Also, seeing the intro change with all the changes in the arc is awesome as well.

The best song ever and truly the only reason to watch all those filler episodes that were on during this opening.

One of the best opening themes of any anime ever. Surprised at how low it ranks here! It set the tone for the arc!

15 Re:member by Flow - Naruto #8

This is childhood and dreams... Guys, why did we forget?

16 Hotaru no Hikari by Ikimono-gakari - Shippuden #5
17 Kara No Kokoro - Anly #20

The song is smooth. The animation puts me into tears. It reminds me of the long journey of watching Naruto. Especially when it says in the opening, "Tell me the story of your life." It is so sad. The opening also reminds me of who they lost, all the sacrifices, for peace at last.

Best opening song. It is an awesome song.

Especially when we had to deal with Naruto ending, this must be in the top ten.

18 Kanashimi Wo Yasashisa Ni - Naruto #3

The opening note to this one strikes your soul like a spear and is filled with so much emotion.

19 Distance - Shippuden OP 2

At first, I thought it was called You Are My Friend, but I found out it was called Distance. The name doesn't matter. All that matters is what it is: a great opening.

It's a big change from OP1, being much more energetic and fast-paced. That's why I like it.

I like the visuals and the song! It's my favorite because of that and the energy I get from watching this intro!

20 Blood Circulator by Asian Kung-fu Generation - Shippuden #19

Brings back memories of the past series before going to Boruto.

21 Fighting Dreamers - Naruto
22 Size of the Moon - Shipped #14
23 Guren - Does Shippuden #15

Kakashi vs. Obito was one of the best fights, and this was one of the best openings. The art and music went so well with what was happening in the anime. It got me hyped.

My favorite one! I love the way it shows Naruto/Sasuke, Kakashi/Obito, and Hashirama/Madara. God, the feelings...

24 CLOSER by Joe Inoue - Shippuden #4

This song deserves to be number 1 for many reasons:
1. The artist seamlessly blends both English and Japanese.
2. The lyrics are pretty uplifting and motivational.
3. The music is catchy.
4. All the instruments by just one artist.

Catchy, inspirational, and the lyrics fit perfectly for that arc. Best Naruto Shippuden opening for me.

This song came at the right arc. Pretty motivational lyrics and catchy.
