Top 5 of the strongest characters in the anime of Naruto: Shippūden

Naruto is one of the series anime Y sleeve most beloved within the Industry, and that is, its protagonist managed to demonstrate his great strength, and his great potential, but as shonen anime, there are other characters that are constantly increasing the scale of power and today we will focus on the most beloved characters. strong in anime Naruto: Shippuden.

Something that seems quite striking to us is that anime has been in Western culture for many years, and we have to remember that Dragon Ball premiered here a long time ago, but we cannot deny that the boom in this kind of content occurred much later. Specifically, if we had to set a date, it would probably be at the beginning of this century, with the start of great franchises such as One Piece, or 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 the strongest ninjas in Naruto for us, 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.

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 franchise, but 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 ahead, but below you will perfectly understand why he was left behind.

Sasuke Uchiha

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 ability with the sword.

Naruto Uzumaki

Our protagonist 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 have decided to put him above, this will depend on each person. Even so, we are not talking about the strongest ninja because we consider that there are two characters that have proven to be stronger than him, and we will explain it to you below.

Madara Uchiha

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.

By the time he absorbed the Jubi, Madara became, in our opinion, the second strongest character in the entire franchise. Even with Naruto and Sasuke collaborating, it seemed practically impossible to defeat him, so 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.

Kaguya Otsutsuki

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 is that he is a character who was defeated thanks to the collaboration between Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi and Obito, that is, that two characters from this list were necessary and another three that were narrowly left out.

Its arsenal of attacks is unmatched, and it is practically impossible to defeat it. A being that, if it didn’t happen because of the foreseen circumstances, could have destroyed the world of Naruto practically without breaking a sweat.
