The Naruto franchise is host to a lot of ridiculously powerful ninja that can annihilate entire landscapes with ease, and even bring people back to life. Let’s take a look at the mightiest of them in this list of the strongest Naruto characters!
The world of Naruto is one filled with powerful men and women who can breathe fire and rain death down upon their foes. But what about those who can shape the very land, warp space and time, or resurrect the dead? This list will showcase 25 of the strongest Naruto characters in the series.
10 – Orochimaru
Student of the Third Hokage and member of the three Sannin alongside Tsunade and Jiraiya, Orochimaru is a villain that causes no shortage of trouble. He is a prodigy of his age who seeks to unravel all the secrets of the world, and has committed many crimes against humanity for the sake of knowledge. His position at Rank 10 in this list accounts for not only his mastery of the ninja arts and intelligence, but also the fact that he has actually attained a form of immortality.
9 – Nagato (Pain)
Of the many Naruto characters in this list, Nagato (Pain) is easily one of the most powerful. Thanks to his Rinnegan eyes, he can perform amazing feats that most shinobi can only dream of—including controlling gravity and returning the souls of the dead to the land of the living. It is for this reason that he is the leader of Akatsuki, which contains numerous powerful shinobi and hunts down Tailed-Beasts throughout the series, and holds the Rank 9 position.
8 – Obito Uchiha
In Rank 8 we have Obito Uchiha, an antagonist who is a former student of the Fourth Hokage and friend to Kakashi. Losing the love of his life drives him mad with grief and leaves him seeking the strength to bring Madara Uchiha’s dream to fruition, enveloping the world in an eternal illusion. By the time the Fourth Shinobi World War takes place, he is one of the most powerful Naruto characters in existence and thus has earned a high place on this list.
7 – Itachi Uchiha
One of the most prominent members of Akatsuki and the brother of Sasuke, Itachi Uchiha is a noted prodigy and widely known as the one responsible for the destruction of the Uchiha Clan. He is a master of illusions with the use of his Sharingan, a skilled swordsman, and master tactician of combat. Very few can match him in battle and are as calculating and battle-hardened as he is — hence why he holds Rank 7 in this list.
