dedel Anime has been in Western culture for many years, and we have to remember that dragonball It premiered here a long time ago, but we cannot deny that the boom in this kind of content occurred much later. Specifically, if we were to set a date, it would probably be at the beginning of this century, with the start of large franchises how can they be one pieceor the one that interests us today, Naruto.
The story of the orphan boy from Konoha who wants to become Hokage managed to go around the world, turning its original creator, Masashi Kishimoto, into a benchmark for other writers from the country of the rising sun. The most curious thing is that we did not see the fame of this series once, but it happened twice, and that is that its sequel, Naruto Shippuden, managed to replicate the success of the original.
For this reason, it is natural that today, several years after this sequel ended, and even with a continuation on the air, we continue to talk about these two great anime gems. Today, we come to show you which are for us the strongest ninjas in Naruto, although it is necessary to warn that we will take into account their power in the two original series, and not what they can do in Boruto.
Of course, before starting you should be careful, since this article will contain many spoilers about the plot of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden.
We start off strong by talking about one of the most beloved ninjas in the series, as well as, in our opinion, the strongest member of the best-known team of their generation: the legendary Sannin. We are talking of a very powerful ninjaas well as one of the best teachers Naruto himself has ever had, but he falls so low on the list due to various factors.
To begin with, his appearance was short, and he stopped being able to see him halfway through Naruto Shippuden, and although he showed good techniques at that time, it was seen that various rivals were far superior to him, including some that we will see below. Still, we are before one of the strongest ninja in Narutoand for that reason it deserved a place in this list.
Earlier we mentioned that later in the list we would see opponents that Jiraiya couldn’t against, and we didn’t have to wait long to talk about him. Call it whatever you want, Nagato o Painwe are talking about the supposed leader of Akatsuki who managed to destroy Konoha with a simple attack.
There may be much stronger ninjas out there (at least in our opinion), but only because of the achievements he got, and because of how intimidating his figure is for every fan of the seriesPain deserved to appear on this list.
We are already entering the field of important spoilers about the final plot of Naruto Shippuden. Specifically, in this case we are going to talk about Obito Uchiha, originally known as Tobithe jester of the Akatsuki, who in the end ended up being the true leader of the organization, as well as a pawn of Madara Uchiha.
During the series finale, he demonstrated extraordinary abilities, managing to have a one-on-one battle against Kakashi Hatake, which would be later named as the 6th Hokage. Still, he didn’t manage to win this fight, but it was his transformation with the Jubi that made us put him on this list. The collaboration of all the ninjas of the war was necessary to defeat him, so he could be higher on the list, but the truth is that he was easily won.
7. Minato Namikaze
Do not be alarmed, with this post we are staying with the best version of this character, and not with the tangle of mistakes and regret that we could see in the final arc of shippuden. The legendary fourth Hokage could not not appear on the list, and if we put together everything we could see about him, and everything that other characters told us, we are talking, without a doubt, about one of the strongest ninjas in Naruto.
In addition, also in the final arc of the series we could see how he showed abilities that we had not seen before, this despite the fact that in other aspects he did not give his best version at all.
6. Itachi Uchiha
Now we are going to talk about another character who could not fail to appear on a list of this type, and that is that although there various characters above him (in our opinion), we are talking about possibly the strongest ninja of his generation, which we also told you about their curiosities.
I don’t think there is much more to explain, and it is that throughout the series he demonstrated on more than one occasion why he is considered one of the strongest. His powerful genjutsu isprobably, his most characteristic abilitybut in other aspects it is not far from other ninjas that we will see below.
5. Hashirama Senju
The first Hokage and one of the two founders of Konoha (we will see the other later), Hashirama Senju could be, if we ignore the final part of the anime, the strongest or one of the two strongest in the franchisebut the appearance of new characters, and the evolution of others took away that position.
Even so, with him we already entered the list of ninjas who could destroy an entire country practically without breaking a sweat, something that he has shown us several times during the anime. Of course, and as we have said before, this ninja could be several positions aheadbut below you will perfectly understand why he was left behind.
This position will be controversial, because there are many people who put Sasuke on the podium, considering him one of the three strongest ninjas in Naruto, but the truth is that we do not consider it to be so. The reality is that we can say that he is tied in power with Naruto, our protagonist, although we consider that, thanks to Kurama’s power, the latter is above the character we are talking about now.
Even so, we consider that Sasuke, at the end of Shippuden, is undoubtedly worthy of this fourth place in the ranking of the strongest ninjas in the series, thanks especially to his Sharingan and his swordsmanship.
our protagonist He had to be, yes or yes, on this list, and it is that at the end of the series he became one of the strongest ninjas in the history of the franchise. Even so, as we have said in the previous post, his strength is quite similar to that of Sasuke Uchiha, and although we we have decided to put it aboveThis will depend on each person.
Still, we’re not talking of the strongest ninja because we consider that there are two characters who have proven to be stronger than him, and we will explain it to you below.
Madara Uchiha founded, together with Hashirama Senju, the village of Konoha, which turns out to be the epicenter of the story. At first, we could say that both founders would be very even, since even the first Hokage was a little stronger, hence the result of their original confrontation, but at the end of the story this was not the case. The moment he absorbed the Jubi, madara becamein our opinion, in the second strongest character in the entire franchise.
Even with Naruto and Sasuke collaborating, it seemed practically impossible to defeat himso much so that if it weren’t for the appearance of the character that we will see next, it is possible that they would never have been able to defeat him.
Sure, we can argue that Kaguya isn’t a ninja as such, but she uses ninja-like techniques, which is why we’ll count her as such. Ignoring that, we do not believe that anyone can refute that this is the strongest character in the entire franchise, and that he is a character who was defeated thanks to the collaboration between Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi and Obitothat is to say, that three characters from this list were necessary and another two that were left out by little.
Its arsenal of attacks is unmatched, and it is practically impossible to defeat it. A being that, if it did not come into being because of the foreseen circumstances, could have destroy the world of Naruto practically without breaking a sweat.
