Naruto Blog



In the universe presented in the Naruto manga, we can draw up an incalculable list of incredible characters who could fit into a top 10 of the most powerful characters. Each with its own techniques and characteristics, some stand out by being able to wipe a mountain off the map in one technique, or by being able to teleport in a flash.

Today, Naruto Merchandise® have compiled a list of the 10 most powerful characters in Naruto for you, based on their characteristics.



TOP 10 STRONGEST NARUTO CHARACTERSMentor of Rock Lee, Gaï Maito is physically the strongest character in Naruto. He is the leader of the Gaï team composed by Rock Lee, Neji Hyûga and Tenten.

He is the most powerful practitioner of Konoha taijutsu, and his fighting style makes him almost unbeatable in hand-to-hand combat. By mastering the technique of opening the eight gates, the latter put him in very serious danger.

The only times Might Guy used it were against Kisame and when he brilliantly confronted Madara during the Great War.




Sasuke Uchiha’s older brother, he was the one who killed his clan members in what would later become known as the Uchiha clan massacre, later deserting the village of Konoha. He became a deserter ninja (Nukenin of Rank S) and a member of Akatsuki.

Extremely gifted from an early age, Itachi quickly mastered the Sharingan, became a genin at only 7 years old, a chûnin at 10 years old and captain of the Anbu Special Forces when he was only 13 years old.

A true master of the art of illusion with the use of his Sharingan, Itachi Uchiha is one of the finest tacticians in manga. It is also extremely versatile, excelling in taijutsu, ninjutsu, seals and, as we told you, genjutsu.



He is one of the students of the third Hokage and a member of the three Sannin, alongside Tsunade and Jiraiya. A true prodigy, too, from an early age, he tried to unlock all the secrets of the ninja world, even if it meant breaking the prohibitions.

He then commits several crimes against humanity, and will be driven out of his own village. It must be recognized that, in the manga or in the anime, we have never been able to grasp the full power of the character. He is one of the most dangerous and powerful Shinobi in history.

He even achieves immortality in order to be able to live as long as necessary to achieve his own goals. When he is a member of Akatsuki, his colleagues consider him a risk. Able to invoke his snake Manda, Orochimaru can also absorb the chakra by simple physical contact, obtaining in the process the user’s skills and knowledge. Able to excel in a multitude of fields, he is eighth in our ranking.




Other members of the three Sannin, Jiraya is a ninja better known as the Frog Hermit. Behind his highly interest in good looking women, he is one of the most powerful characters in manga, and the true master of Naruto Uzumaki, the protagonist of the manga.

A very large and versatile ninja, he excels in almost all arts, except genjutsu, where he says he is very mediocre. But with his frog summoning techniques, Jiraiya has truly specialized in this field and is one of the most powerful users in ninjutsu and senjutsu.

As proof of his great power and fear, even Itachi and Kisame, although in two against one, did not dare to face him. He even have had the possibility to become Hokage himself, but he preferred refusing it.




Legendary leader of the Uchiha clan, he is the co-founder of the hidden Leaf village with Hashirama Senju. He is undoubtedly one of the two strongest ninjas of his time, and one of the best in history. Much more advanced than the elite of the Uchiha of his time, he mastered many technical fields to perfection.

Like all Uchihas, Madara mastered the techniques of fire (katon), genjutsu, and had pushed the use of his Sharingan to a new level. He is the one who developed the eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.

Even after his death, his name is feared by all ninjas. At the end of the manga, when Madara Uchiha is resurrected, and when he is confronted with Naruto and Sasuke, one can grasp the full extent of his powers and his fierce resistance, which make him the main antagonist of the Great War.




Madara Uchiha’s rival is the other co-founder of the hidden leaf village of Konoha. In his youth, he faced his best friend and future opponent Madara several times, before the two joined forces to form the village of Konoha. Relationships and visions stretch caused an inevitable confrontation that will see him overcome Madara.

He is Konoha’s first Hokage. Known as the most powerful ninja of his time, he is also called “the God of the shinobis”. Hashirama Senju was able to win his fight against Madara, even if the latter had overpowering techniques like the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, coupled with the control over Kyubi, the nine-tailed fox demon.

Able to master the techniques of wood (mokuton) and air with a certain perfection, Hashirama was also a ninja who excelled in the art of medical ninjutsu. He is also Tsunade’s grandfather.




Princess Kaguya consumed the fruit of the divine tree, and thus became the first person able to use the chakra on Earth. Then it merged with the tree, and became Jubi, the ten-tailed beast.

Although we know very little about her skills, we can refer to the judgment of Hagoromo who, being himself one of the most powerful characters in history, described her as stronger than anyone else in the world. Able to stop wars on her own, she inspired people of her time to fear and be afraid.

She also owned all three dojutsu, making her a very powerful and almost unbeatable opponent in one against one. Also, thanks to her third particular eye, Kaguya Ootsutsuki was able to control gravity, for example by increasing it to prevent her opponents’ movements.




Alongside Naruto, Sasuke developed his first advanced Shinobi techniques. Initially a protagonist of the manga, he followed his goal by becoming a darker character and became a real antagonist, even going so far as to set up an alliance with Akatsuki.

Gradually developing his Sharingan as the manga progresses, he even went so far as to obtain the very powerful Mangekyô Sharingan, after his fight against his brother Itachi. After the fight against Hachibi, he was able to master Amaterasu, one of his most powerful techniques. Then he shows himself capable of extinguishing his own flames with his eye, something his brother could never do.

In the fight against the Raikage, it is clear that Sasuke Uchiha has already surpassed his brother’s level, through his extensive flame manipulation, capable of making it a solid shield. Finally, his Susanoo technique is certainly one of the most powerful techniques ever created, competing without any problem with Madara’s.




The day of his birth, Naruto became the jinchuriki of Kyûbi, the most powerful of the tails beasts. This caused him to be rejected by most of the inhabitants of his village, and he would have to spend a very difficult childhood, deprived of his parents.

Little by little, the dunce will become a gradually respected ninja, and will have to fight internally with the nine-tailed fox beast. As his experiences, sometimes traumatic, progressed, he obtained the recognition of the villagers and passed the power capes one by one.

Naruzo Uzumaki quickly became one of the major actors of the Fourth Great Shinobi War, becoming more and more friends with Kyubi. Being an Uzumaki, it naturally has a larger chakra reserve than most ninjas. According to Kakashi, it is four times higher than his.

His multi-cloning technique is one of the most successful in the world, his Rasengan is overpowering and multiplies in many forms, and his transformation into Kyûbi allows him to defeat the most powerful enemies, even Pain (Pein). Gradually, however, he gave up using it, and became stronger by mastering other types of techniques, such as the Rikudo mode, which gave him extraordinary powers.




The hermit Rikudo (Rikudo Sennin) is undoubtedly the most powerful ninja in the manga. It is he who is at the origin of the world as it is presented in manga, and it is the creator and first user of ninshu. Son of Princess Kaguya, the first user of the chakra, he was able to defeat Jubi in his confrontation with him. So this is the first Jinchuriki.

Creator of all ninja techniques, Hagoromo Ootsutsuki is able to use both the Mangekyou Sharingan and the Six Paths technique. Also, when the ninjas are generally limited to a maximum of two types of chakras, he could master all five natures. His chakra reserve was immense, almost infinite, and the people already elevated him to the rank of God during his lifetime.

In other words, Hagoromo had absolute mastery of ninjutsu, taijutsu, genjutsu and fuinjutsu, in addition to all the other techniques he created. It is so incredible that many believe that it is more legend than a real ancestor.
