Itachi Uchiha was one of the strongest characters in the Naruto series. He really became a fan favorite due to his sacrifices. Itachi was considered unbeatable by the fans and the characters.
But, there were some characters who could beat him even without six paths powers. So, today I have made a list of 6 characters who could beat Itachi Uchiha.
6. Might Gai
The list begins with the taijutsu master, Might Gai. Gai is a user of the Eight Inner Gates, which he learned from his father.
Personally, I think Seven Gate Gai is would be more than enough for Itachi. Even if the Seventh Gate doesn’t work, Gai could use the Eight Gate, and Itachi would pretty much dead.
Before someone says that Itachi can use genjutsu on him, let me make it clear. Gai has learned how to fight Sharingan users without looking them in the eye and also Gai wouldn’t give him the opportunity to cast the genjutsu.
5. Hashirama Senju
This inclusion shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. Hashirama would wreck Itachi in a fight. It doesn’t matter if Itachi used the Susanoo.
Hashirama would wipe the floor with him. The Wood Release is a really big advantage for Hashirama. Also, if Itachi was caught by his Wood Dragon, then all of his would’ve been drained and Itachi would be dead.
4. Minato Namikaze
Minato was the Fourth Hokage of Konohagakure. Many characters including Jiraiya and Kakashi believed that Minato had surpassed all of the previous Hokage.
Minato style was finishing the battle quickly without losing a lot of chakra. His battle against Itachi would be really interesting as both would want to end things quickly.
The biggest problem for Itachi would be Minato’s teleportation jutsu. Itachi could tank hits with his Susanoo but, he wouldn’t be able to keep it up for a long time.
That’s when Minato would finish things.

2. Tobirama Senju
Tobirama is the character who I think is severely underrated. He is a really powerful character and a true genius. Although Tobirama’s feats aren’t exceptional as the other people on the list, I still firmly believe that he’s a match for any character.
Tobirama has been battling members of the Uchiha clan throughout his entire life. I can’t think of any other character with more experience than him.
Tobirama’s teleportation and forbidden jutsu will come in handy against Itachi Uchiha. Tobirama also has extraordinary chakra reserves as he is Senju. So, Tobirama can do the job.
1. Third Raikage
The final characters on the list is the Third Raikage of Kumogakure. He was hailed as the strongest ever Raikage of Kumo.
The Third Raikage was a true monster when it came to physically strength. He was also exceptionally fast.
The Raikage was able to fight Gyuki without any aid. It’s totally amazing how he could fight a tailed beast.
He was the only person who was able to subdue Gyuki’s rampages. I’ll be honest here, Itachi doesn’t stand a chance against this monster.
Itachi’s best chance is the Amaterasu and the Susanoo. But, the Third can easily outlast Itachi with his insane chakra.
