The 18 Strongest Naruto Characters Of All Time

List Rules
Vote up the Naruto characters you'd never want to face in combat.

Naruto is home to some of the strongest characters to ever appear in an anime - seriously, there are characters who can wipe out the planet with a single move, which isn't something that can be said for every show. But with so many outlandishly strong contenders, who are the most powerful Naruto characters?

Members of the Uchiha clan, a family known for their incredible eye based ability, crop up frequently. Sasuke Uchiha begins life as a child prodigy who can hold his own against adults, but he ends up gathering such a wide range of powers that he's almost godlike. Madara Uchiha follows a similar trajectory. But super-powered characters crop up outside of the Uchiha clan as well - Tsunade can not only heal herself and others with speed and precision, she can also split the ground open with her fists. And let's not forget Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, the first person to ever wield chakra, who can use just about any power to ever exist.

Who is truly the strongest? You be the judge.

    You can't get any stronger than a legendary god-like figure such as Hagoromo Otsutsuki. As the son of Kaguya Otsutsuki, Hagoromo possesses the same powerful chakra as his mother. He is also able to use Yin–Yang Release which helped him become the Ten-tails' first Jinchūriki. It's no wonder why he's regarded as the Sage of Six Paths.

    As the main character, Naruto Uzumaki is naturally among the most powerful characters in the Naruto-verse. He has a nearly endless supply of chakra thanks to Kyuubi, the Nine-Tailed Fox that resides in his body. Though it takes him a ton of training and negotiating with Kyuubi, he is eventually able to harness its abilities as his own. But Naruto also has plenty of other techniques, including varying forms of Rasengan, a spinning ball of energy that he can launch at people, sage jutsu, which allows him to harness energy from the natural world, and countless other incredible abilities.

    He's so strong that one wonders if it's actually physically possible for one person to be able to do so many things, even in a fantasy setting.

    It takes a metric ton of strength to be able to be willing to have your eyeball plucked out as you're on the verge of losing your life, and then to recover from having half of your body smashed under a boulder. If Obito had stopped there, he still would have deserved a spot on this list, but Obito became even stronger than that - he's able to use just about every ability that the mangekyou Sharingan and the Rinnegan have to offer, including resurrecting ninja from the past, powerful genjutsu techniques, and more.

    His more noteworthy ability is Kamui, which allows him to travel to different dimensions and to permeate objects at will. He also houses the Ten-Tails, the most powerful tailed beast of all, in his body, which gives him access to a plethora of potentially world-ending techniques.

    There's a reason why a whole army went up against Madara. He not only possesses a wide plethora of jutsu, he can also easily throw hands with anyone who challenges him. In fact, he once said, correctly, that the only two people who ever presented a serious challenge to him were Hashirama and Guy. As a child, he was able to take on adult opponents without even awakening his Sharingan.

    Later, he developed a wide range of abilities, including the ability to enter sage mode with no prior training, mastery of all elemental release techniques - one of which was granted by infusing his body with Hashirama's DNA - and a fully awakened Sharingan that was capable of putting the entire planet under mass hypnosis.
