11 Strongest Naruto Characters | The Ultimate Showstoppers


Who is the Strongest Naruto Character? With scores of endearing characters featuring in more than hundreds of episodes, the engaging anime Naruto forces us to think again and again about the most powerful character in Naruto.

The Manga (1999-2014) on which this series is based was started even a year before I was born! Since there were 72 volumes of this mesmerizing Manga, there was no dearth of content for the anime, which eventually aired from 2002 to 2017 (parts 1 and 2). Both of these parts contained some of the strongest characters of all time.

The 720 power-packed episodes of Naruto had many phenomenal characters but out of them, the strongest Naruto characters are –

  • Naruto Uzumaki
  • Hashirama Senju (First Hokage)
  • Kaguya Otsutsuki 
  • Nagato (Pain)
  • Sasuke Uchiha
  • Hogoromo Otsuki (Sage of Six Paths)
  • Kakashi Hatake
  • Hiruzen Sarutobi
  • Minato Namikaze
  • Obito Uchiha
  • Killer Bee

11 Strongest Naruto Characters That Make The Anime Worth Watching

The fans were (and still are) divided for years over declaring the strongest Naruto character. As each episode progressed, the tussle to see their favorite character win the race increased. Refer to this extensive list of strongest Naruto characters and see if you agree – 

1# Naruto Uzumaki

1# Naruto Uzumaki

Did you know Naruto failed thrice while graduating from the academy and was an unskilled Ninja at the beginning? It is common knowledge that he had huge reserves of strong chakra and he had the Nine-tailed beast sealed inside. 

He has been granted healing power, vitality, longevity, and stamina. He was a reincarnation of Asura Otsutsuki. What are your thoughts about Naruto’s much-debated death?

2# Hashirama Senju 

Hashirama Senju 

Hashirama Senju was not a mere member of the Senju clan; he can also be called the God of Shinobi (as he sought peace for the Shinobi world) due to his extraordinary ninja expertise. 

It is rumored that he killed Madara in the battle. There were nine free-roaming tailed beasts, and Hashirama captured and subdued eight of them. Fun fact – He was born even before the Hidden leaf village was founded on the 23rd day of October.

3# Kaguya Otsutsuki 

Kaguya Otsutsuki

Famous as the Mother of Chakra, Kagua Otsutsuki (The Disgrace of Otsutsuki Clan) turned out to be the ultimate evil in the series and was the first wielder of chakra as she once ate from the forbidden tree. 

Apart from having incomparable visual prowess, she can read the feelings and thoughts of people, change time and space, etc. She has always been known by different names like – The Rabbit Goddess, God Almighty, Mother (by Black Zetsu), The Progenitor of Chakra, etc.

4# Nagato (Pain)

Nagato (Pain)

This descendant of the Uzumaki clan aimed to bring peace to the Shinobi world that was quite violent. When Yahiko died, he started referring to himself as pain. He was very sensitive and full of empathy.

Upon being defeated by Nagato, he decided to bring back Jiraiya, Kakashi, and several other Hidden Leaf Shinobi whom he had killed earlier and died himself in the process.

5# Hogoromo Otsutsuki (Sage of Six Paths)

 Hogoromo Otsuki (Sage of Six Paths)

More than a historical figure, Indra and Asura’s father was seen as a myth, and his kindness and bravery were sung in stories all around. Hogoromo was born on 6 August and was more than a thousand years old. He was also known as the savior of the world.

He was born to Princess Kaguya Otsutsuki and his fraternal twin was Hamura. These twins teamed up against Kaguya and sealed the beast. Consequently, Hagomoro turned out to be the first Jinchuriki.

6# Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi Hatake

As the name suggests, Kakashi belongs to the Hatake clan. Obito Uchiha (childhood friend) taught him the importance of teamwork, and he preaches the same learning in front of his students (Team 7). 

He was later called Konoha’s Sixth Hokage after the 4th Shinobi world war took place. He is a very strong character as he has mastered all the 3 leading Ninja shills. According to Naruto, Kakashi is brighter than Shikamaru Nara and more adept with Sharingan than Sasuke Uchiha.

7# Hiruzen Sarutobi

Hiruzen Sarutobi

Third Hokage or Hiruzen Sarutobi was a powerful ninja apart from being the disciple of the previous Hokage. We know him by various names like The Professor, Pervert, Geezer, Lord Third, and Old Gramps. Danzo Shimura of the Shimura clan was his good friend. 

Interestingly, he was among the first generation of Ninjas produced by Konoha. He was trained by Hashirama Senju (Yes, the first Hokage) and outdid everybody in ninja arts.

8# Minato Namikaze

 Minato Namikaze

The Fourth Hokage (fourth fire shadow) or Minato Namikaze was also famous as Konoha’s Yellow flash. He was born on the 25th day of May. Remember the Nine-tailed Demon Fox’s attack? He died instead, sacrificing his life during that attack. 

The orders to flee on sight were given to enemies during the third shinobi world if and when they encountered him. He thwarted one thousand Iwagakure shinobi like a one-person army.

9# Obito Uchiha

obito Uchiha

This member of the Konohagakure’s Uchiha clan was rumored to die during the Third Shinobi World War. At that time, the Sharingan he gave to Kakashi was his only living legacy. In reality, he died but was saved by Madara Uchiha.

He became a Chunin after long and tough training. Madra was hugely impressed by him and his caliber and made him his disciple. He fought three powerful Hokage with great ease.

10# Killer Bee

Killer Bee

Killer Bee is known by many names like Lord B, Octopops, Gyuki of Kumogakure, Master B, Shades wearing pops, and Hero of Heroes. Although he is responsible for saving the whole village, he still wants to be a rapper and not just a rapper but the greatest in the world.

He can fire multiple Tailed Beast Balls and spin tentacles to generate powerful tornadoes. Moreover, he can regenerate the tentacles (sadly, not his horns). Remember when A cut off his horn, and it was lost forever?

11# Sasuke Uchiha

Sasuke Uchiha

Voiced by Yuri Lowenthal and Erica Mendez, Sasuke was the younger brother of Itachi. Yes, the same Itachi who slaughtered Konohagakure’s Uchiha clan. Sasuke was one of the last surviving members of that clan. We also saw him in the OVA ‘Find the four-leaf Red Clover!

Sasuke was born on 23 July and when he became a ninja, he was added to Team 7, and he further strengthens and developed his skills by competing with Naruto Uzumaki (best friend).

Final Words

Out of Sasuke, Obita, Hiruzen, Kakashi (or any other character mentioned in this list for that matter) who do you think should be the winner? Is there some other character in your mind? Who, according to you, can be suitably titled the most robust Naruto character? My vote (though you didn’t ask for it) is and was always with the titular character.
