There are several strong Ninjas in the entire Naruto series. Here are the 20 top strongest Naruto characters from the series. Obviously, you might not agree with our list, but overall you will get an idea about the strongest ninjas.
20. Kisame Hoshigaki
Kisame was called the tail-less tail beast due to his extraordinary amount of chakra. Kisame wielded the sword Samehada. He was one of the 7 ninja swordsmen.
Kisame paired with Itachi in the Akatsuki. He was exceptional in the water-style jutsus.
19. Killer B
Killer bee was the jinchuriki of the 8 tail. In spite of his weird rapping talent, Killer bee was an amazing shinobi. We first time see him when Sasuke went to capture him with his team.
Killer bee single-handedly defeated them several times. Sasuke almost died at least 2 times in that fight. Thanks to Jugo and Karin, they managed to heal him with their special abilities.
18. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto Yakushi is the one who directed the entire 4th Shinobi war. He reanimated the previous Kages, Madara Uchiha, the dead Akatsuki members, the Seven ninja swordsman, and all the other renowned ninjas all over the other villages. He not only reanimated them, but he also continuously kept all of them under his control, which is crazy to even imagine.
Kabuto was not that powerful at the beginning. But, his powers began to evolve the moment he merged with Orochimaru(or his leftover). Later, Kabuto became the Dragon-sage.
Itachi and Sasuke (EMS) could not simply defeat him & Itachi was forced to use the unique visual power Izanami to defeat Kabuto.
17. Itachi Uchiha
I don’t think there is much to say about this prodigy. Itachi was known as one of the gifted shinobi of his generation. Itachi was exceptionally good at genjutsu. He had a unique genjutsu called Tsukuyomi.
Itachi was also quite adept at taijutsu. Itachi is undoubtedly one of the finest and skillful ninjas Hidden leaf has ever produced.
Jiraiya was one of the 3 legendary Sannin. He has completed the highest amount of missions in the entire series.
The Perv Sage was the 2nd person to train in the Mount Myoboku, after sage of the six paths that is. Actually, Jiraiya went to Mount Myoboku by accident. When he tried to perform the summoning jutsu without the blood contract and ended up reverse
This Tsuchikage is one of the badass characters. I mean, he literally could fly around and use his unique Kekkei tota. If you already don’t know, there is only one Kekkei Tota in the entire Naruto series. And that is Dust release. It combines the 3 chakra nature- earth, wind, and fire.
He stopped the first humungous meteor attack by Madara with the help of Gaara.
14. Third Raikage
Third Raikage is one of the fastest and strongest Ninja in history. He was famous for his speed, strength, and stamina. He could fight for several days non-stop. In his generations, there was very few ninjas who could stood chance against him.
He went head to head against 8tail beast.
13. Nagato Uzumaki
Nagato is 13th strongest naruto characters. He possessed the rinnegan, the legendary ocular jutsu. He had a unique style of using his rinnegan. As an Uzumaki, Nagato had a very large reservation of chakra. On top of that, Nagato mastered numerous jutsu at the age of only 10.
The Akatsuki leader mastered all of the Nature Transformation and Yang release. For a 10-year-old kid, it’s frightening. As it is extremely rare even for an adult, it is quite obvious no other young kid could accomplish something like that.
12. Tobirama Senu
Tobirama Senju invented many of the popular jutsus as well as the forbidden jutsus. For example, the Shadow clone jutsu and the Flying rijin jutsu. These 2 jutsu later became popular in the hand of the 4th Hokage and his son Naruto Uzumaki. On the other hand, he created a Re-animation jutsu that caused so much trouble later on.
11. Hiruzen Sarutobi
Hiruzen sarutobi, also known as the professor is one of the wisest people in the entire series. He was one of the 3 people who are considered as the God of Shinobi. The third Hokage knew each and every jutsu that exist in the hidden leaf village. I am not talking about the Kekkei Genkai, of course.
10. Might guy (Death gate)
The strongest Taijutsu user in the entire Naruto series. After opening the Death Gate of the 8 inner gates, he became 10 times more powerful than a Hokage.
Even without opening any of the inner gates he still is one hell of a fighter. This taijutsu specialist figured out a way to fight the genjutsu specialist Itachi Uchiha.
9. Hashirama Senju
The God of shinobi had a unique kekkei genkai, Wood-style technique. Basically, it is a combined nature transformation of Earth-style and Water style technique. Hashirama had an insane amount of chakra reserve.
Like a tailed beast, he could constantly regenerate his chakra and heal himself even in the middle of a fight.
His sage jutsu could handle complete nine tail and the Madara’s full-body Susanoo with ease.
8. Minato Namikaze (9 tail)
Minato Namikaze is undoubtedly one of the strongest shinobi in history. He was so strong during his day that Kakashi and Third Raikage don’t believe that anyone could possibly surpass him. The fact that he lived a very short life and was not in his prime yet makes him even more fearsome.
The other village leaders gave flee-on-sight order as soon as anyone sees him in the battleground.
He gained half of the 9 tails when Orochimaru reanimated him.
7. Kakashi Hatake (Complete Kamui)
The son of the white fang was often misunderstood as the white fang himself. Kakashi was considered a genius from childhood. Even before he got the sharingan from Obito, he was feared by all.
The reason why he is in this position is because of the both-eyed Sharingan that Obito gave him for a certain time. Thanks to that, Kakashi was able to use the full-body Susanoo and use the complete kamui at the same. He even cut down the Rabbit Goddess’s hands with Kamui Raikiri and Kamui Shuriken.
6. Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha
Naruto and Sasuke are the main two characters of this anime series. Naruto controlled the 9 tail and got the power from the Sage of the six paths himself alongside Sasuke. Naruto could levitate as well. Not to mention, Naruto had chakra of all the tail beasts inside him.
5. Ashura and Indra Otsutsuski
Ashura and Indra were the two sons of Hagoromo. Indra was the person who invented the hand signs to perform a Jutsu. Ashura was pure-hearted. On the other hand, Indra was proud of his prowess and ultimately was brainwashed by Black Zetsu.
4. Juubi Obito Uchiha
If anyone were to defeat Zubi Rikodu sennin also known as six paths 10 tail Madara in a one on one battle, it would be Obito.
Why? 10 tail Obito Uchiha had one of the over top Space-time ninjutsu, Kamui. Obito really was crazy powerful after he became the 10 tail jinchuriki.
3. Juubi Rikodou sennin Madara Uchiha
Aside from the Otsutsuski clan, Zubi Madara is the strongest character in the entire Naruto series. Zubi means 10 tails Jinchuriki. Madra had wood-style, Hashirama’s cell, senjutsu, Rinnegan.
Though a lot of people misunderstand the prowess Madara had back then and think that Might guy was stronger than him. Well, if you are not blind or biased, you should be able to tell that Madara was just standing in the fight against Might Guy. And Kakashi, Minato, Garaa, Lee helped him there.
2. Hagoromo and Hamura Otsutsuski
Hagoromo and Hamura were the two sons of Kaguya Otsutsuski. Both of them got their chakra power from their mother. Later they enhanced their abilities by exercise. Hagoromo went to Mount Myoboku to train.
They were the two who sealed Kaguya Otsutsuki, their mother.
1. Kaguya Otsutsuski
Well, this is not the place to be surprised. We all know, how powerful Kaguya is. Actually, she is an alien according to the databook and Manga. However, she was not all that powerful at first (by the time the villagers attacked her). Then she ate the chakra fruit and you know the rest.
Kaguya’s biggest prowess was one of her Yomotsu Hirasaka. With this Kekkei Mora, Kaguya could easily travel from Dimension to dimension.
Sakumo hatake, Hanzō of the Salamander, Shisui Uchiha, Fugaku Uchiha, Izuna Uchiha.
