From Naruto to Boruto, there have been plenty of dangerous villains, each with their own set of tough-to-beat powers. But who are the most powerful villains that the heroes have had to face so far?

Many of the strongest Naruto villains are members of the Otsutsuki or Uchiha clans. With earth-shattering inherited abilities, members of these clans are nearly impossible to beat - especially the Otsutsukis, whose powers transcend human limits. But there are other villains from the series who would be tough to go up against too - Kisame Hoshigaki might not be an Uchiha, but with his boundless chakra and his mastery of the Samehada sword, he's not somebody you'd want to face in battle.

Which villain do you think is the strongest? Be sure to vote them up!

  • Itachi Uchiha was so powerful that he was able to take down nearly the entire Uchiha clan, seemingly on his own. While it turned out that he had some help, it's still not a feat most could pull off. He's able to use a wide range of techniques, many of which are derived from his Mangekyo Sharingan. His Susano-o is equipped with the nearly impenetrable Yata Mirror, as well as the legendary Sword of Totsuka. He's known for his genjutsu prowess, specifically Tsukuyomi, a jutsu that lets him force a target to experience elaborate illusions and mess with their sense of time.

    Isshiki Otsutsuki

    Isshiki Otsutsuki is one of the main antagonists of Boruto, and while he hasn't shown the full extent of his abilities yet, it's clear that he's a major threat. He's currently using Jigen's body as a vessel, but hopes to move to Kawaki's body because, despite modifications, Jigen's body can only take so much. He has a wide range of abilities. Some of the most noteworthy are chakra absorption strong enough to suck up an Amaterasu attack, the ability to use Kama seals, and a doujutsu that lets him shrink items and send them to a pocket dimension.

    Momoshiki Otsutsuki

    Despite the vast depths of her own power, Kaguya Otsutsuki was pretty nervous about Momoshiki. No wonder - he's got a ton of powers, including a Rinnegan, a Byakun, the ability to absorb other people's powers and use them for himself, and a heck of a lot more. Just about the only thing he's even remotely bad at is taijutsu, and that's only because he hasn't trained much. 

  • Known as one of the legendary Sannin even before he started performing unethical experiments to boost his strength, Orochimaru was strong from the start. Through learning Sage Mode as well as a whole lot of body-hopping and body modification, he gained a plethora of abilities. He was so strong that had he not been evil, he would have been a likely candidate for the hokage position.
