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.

  • 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.

  • Hashirama Senju was the one of the founders of Konohagakure, and served as its first Hokage. He was powerful enough to subdue eight out of the nine Tailed Beasts without help. He had a ridiculous amount of chakra, which he could use to fuel a wide range of offensive techniques and to heal others. But perhaps his most noteworthy ability is his signature one: Wood Release. Wood Release lets him create trees and other plants. This can be used to reform the land around him, attack enemies, and hold Tailed Beasts captive.

  • 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.
