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. 

  • No list about powerful Konoha ninja would be complete without the protagonist and eventual Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki. As the Nine Tails' jinchuuriki, Naruto has access to a vast store of powerful chakra, which he eventually learns to harness as his own. But even without the Nine Tails, Naruto is still super strong. With techniques like Rasengan, Sage Mode, and more, Naruto eventually becomes every bit as strong as he hoped he would.

  • 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.

  • There's a good reason why Sasuke Uchiha is known as the Second Hokage, and it's not just that he's Naruto's friend. Sasuke is one of the strongest ninjas still alive in Konoha. Even as a kid, he could blow giant fireballs, and quickly mastered Chidori. As he continued to expand his abilities, he would grow far stronger. Eventually, he'd gain Orochimaru's Curse Seal abilities, as well as the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, and the Rinnegan, and be able to utilize to the powers of both. By the end of the series he's using shattering techniques like Indra's Arrow.

  • The only people who have ever truly been able to challenge Madara are Hashirama and Might Guy. As a kid, he could wreck adult enemies easily despite not having awakened his Sharingan. Once he gained access to his power, his strength increased to the point where it took a whole army to take him on - and it didn't even work.

    Madara was able to use techniques like Shinra Tensei, which let him pull meteors down to the Earth. He could use Sage Mode, all forms of Nature Release, every ability afforded by the Rinnegan and the Mangekyo Sharingan - we could sit here listing his powers for days and not get done. Most notably, he awakened the Rinne Sharingan, which allowed him to cast Infinite Tsukuyomi over the entire planet.
