15 Naruto Heroes Who Have Completely Villainous Jutsu

When most people think about heroes, they don't think about them doing things like destroying foes' bodies at the molecular level, using parasitic insects to fight for them, invading their opponent's psyche, or fighting with a body that's been transformed into a puppet. But in the world of Naruto, what matters isn't so much what the jutsu looks like, but who's using it, and why. 

Naruto heroes with villainous jutsu prove that morality is more complicated than it looks. Everyone knows that Naruto Uzumaki is a hero, but the damage his Rasenshuriken can do is life-ruining. Meanwhile Jugo is just about the nicest person in the world, but he can't even exist in society because his Sage Transformation turns him into a raging monster. Also, did you guys realize that Shizune, a medical ninjutsu expert, also breathes poison?

Vote up the Naruto heroes whose jutsu seems the most villainous.


  • Gaara might be a good guy now, but everyone saw what kind of horrors he was capable of when he was originally introduced as a villain. One of the scariest moves he pulls off is Sand Coffin and its follow-up move, Sand Waterfall Funeral. The first move involves encasing his foe in sand. Sometimes, he'll simply let them suffocate. Sometimes, he'll crush all the bones in their body and drench the sand in blood.

    His current techniques aren't quite so brutal, but he still pulls out the harsher stuff when he has to.

    Ibiki Morino - Summoning: Torture Chamber & Iron Maiden

    It's hard to call someone who tortures people for a living a hero, but since he does it for the sake of Konoha, he counts.

    But you wouldn't know it from some of his jutsu. They're perfect for the job, but they're bone-chilling. The scariest ones allow him to summon either a torture chamber or an iron maiden. He combines these horrible weapons with his extensive knowledge of human psychology and interrogation techniques to get whatever information he needs. Let's just ignore the fact that whether or not torture actually produces useful information is highly controversial.

  • Without looking too closely at the details, Kankuro's puppet technique is already pretty devastating. The puppets he controls can eviscerate, burn, poison, and otherwise destroy his targets in a plethora of ways. But it gets worse: many of the puppets he controls are made from human bodies. While most of them were gifts from Sasori, he's still controlling the bodies of once-living people - including Sasori's own body. 

  • Sasuke has vacillated between villain and hero several times throughout the series, so it's only appropriate that some of his techniques follow suit. Perhaps the best example of this is Amaterasu, a Mangekyo Sharingan move that's literally referred to as the flames of Hell. It creates black flames that will never stop burning unless Sasuke stops them himself. They're as hot as the sun, and they can eat through any material.
