Konohagakure, the ninja village of the Land of Fire, is home to some of the most dangerous ninja in the world of Naruto. Some of the strongest Hidden Leaf Ninja are famous figures like Hashirama and Tobirama Senju, who helped found the village and set the tone for everything else that would happen later. Others would go on to lead the village, like Minato Namikaze and Tsunade. Still others would ultimately oppose the village that made them - Orochimaru was one of the three Legendary Sannin, but ended up defecting from the village and becoming a criminal. And of course, there are more modern figures like Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha.

Which of these Konoha greats do you think is the strongest? Be sure to vote them up. 

  • Though his term as the Fourth Hokage was tragically cut short, Minato Namikaze was still one of the most powerful ninja in Konoha history - seriously, the guy once defeated 1,000 Iwagakure ninja by himself. Though he had a wide range of abilities, he was best known for the space-time ninjutsu known as the Flying Thunder God Technique. This allowed him to mark an area with a special seal, and then rapidly teleport to that area.

  • Itachi Uchiha demonstrated his incredible strength by massacring the entire Uchiha clan with some help from Obito. He did this not because he was inherently evil, but because he had little choice. Afterwards, he became a key member of the Akatsuki. 

    His strengths were many. With his Mangekyo Sharingan, he could use powerful genjutsu like Tsukuyomi, as well as the eternally burning flame Ameterasu, and the defensive technique Susano-o, which in his case, had enhancements like the Yata mirror and the Totsuka Blade.

  • Jiraiya is one of the legendary Sannin, but viewers may know him best as Naruto's mentor. Jiraiya was a master of senjutsu - an ability that lets the user pull in natural energy - which he used to strengthen ninjutsu attacks like Rasengan. Despite his strength, he was taken down during the Pain invasion - for many viewers, this marked one of the saddest moments in the show.

  • Tobirama Senju was one of the founders of Konoha, and he served as the second Hokage. He not only mastered countless techniques, he also invented quite a few, including Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation, which would later play a major role in the story. Though he was proficient in just about every area, he was best known for his use of space-time ninjutsu like the Flying Thunder God Technique.
