The Most Powerful Naruto Characters have a lot of the same characters from our list of The Most Popular Naruto characters, but with a few new characters sprinkled in!
Honestly, though, this list was FAR harder to create than other powerful lists like Dragon Ball Z Most Powerful Characters, Jujutsu Kaisen Most Powerful Characters, My Hero Academia Most Powerful Characters, and others we’ve already seen.
The characters on the top ten deserve their slot, but the power levels are just so close together, and there’s just SO MANY powerful characters that even our runner-up section at the bottom of this article was hard to lock down.
I mean we literally had to make cuts to some of the characters being added to our list of The Most Powerful Anime Characters of All Time because I didn’t want to list too many Dragon Ball and Naruto characters!
BUT, before I rant about the power level throughout the show TOO much (might have already done that), I do want to point out that Naruto is one of the most popular shows for inspired workout requests here on the site.
We have our Naruto Inspired Workouts in a mini-database within our larger Anime Workouts Database like we’ve now been able to do for a handful of the most popular shows – and we also even just recently got our Naruto Inspired Workout Placement Quiz to help SHJ Army members find the best workout for them.
If you like listicles like this one, here are a few more I think you might like:

- Best Anime to Watch on Hulu Right Now
Of course we’ve also done a handful of “Most Powerful” and “Most Popular” for other anime so if you’d like to check those out you can visit our other listicles here.
For this one I scoured the internet for help and almost every single listicle has a different take on who The Most Powerful Naruto Characters are so what I decided to do was compile ALL of them together and place each character in the slot they averaged most as well as keeping the list to base TEN most powerful and then increasing the length of the normal runner-up slots I normally do in no specific order.
As always, leave your comments below if you were expecting other characters!

Number Ten: Orochimaru
Starting off our list of The Most Powerful Naruto Characters of All Time we have the Hidden Leaf’s Legendary Sannin: Orochimaru!
I mean, can you transform into a massive, eight-headed hydra?
Well me neither. BUT, That’s not the only trick up Orochimaru’s sleeve (well, not a sleeve while he’s the hydra, I suppose). One source writes this about his power level: “Orochimaru is often written off as one of the weaker Naruto villains, but this is a mistaken view. In fact, Orochimaru is one of the most terrifyingly powerful characters in the Naruto universe. Why? Because he’s made himself almost impossible to beat. Using his Living Corpse Reincarnation technique, he’s able to transfer his consciousness to new bodies when the old one gets finished. His extensive knowledge of different jutsu, as well as his possession of the DNA from other ninja that allows him to use their powers, make those bodies pretty hard to stop in the first place.”
Do you agree with Orochimaru’s placement in the top ten or would you push him down to the honorable mentions and bring someone else up into his slot?

Number Nine: Itachi Uchiha
Coming in at number nine on the list of the most powerful Naruto characters of all time is Itachi Uchiha!
Itachi coming in after Orochimaru is fitting considering he was his old apprentice – but who knows if you guys will allow Orochimaru to stay in the top ten or demand a swap with one of our honorable mentions below!
Itachi came in at number one among our Most Popular Naruto Characters of All Time, and he was the strongest member of the legendary Uchiha clan by the age of 13, but there were still a lot of Naruto characters who surpassed him in overall powers and abilities throughout the course of the show.
And not surprisingly, we have a handful of other Uchiha’s still left to see…
Itachi Uchiha at SHJ:
Number Eight: Obito Uchiha
At number eight amount the most powerful Naruto characters of all time is our second Uchiha on the list: Obito.
Obito didn’t make it to the most popular characters in Naruto, but if it was strictly based on the among of times you guys requested a workout inspired by him, he might have!
Obito’s power is described as being virtually limitless. He was placed around the top seven to nine slot on almost every single list I researched before making this one. In some cases he was actually slotted about other members that will come next so I’m curious to hear your thoughts on his placement among the rest.

Number Seven: Nagato (Pain)
Next up among our most powerful Naruto characters of all time is Nagato!
While there are some characters on this list that I had a really hard time placing, even to the point where I had to purposely keep it to ten and extend our honorable mentions: I think Nagato slot is perfect. There might be characters around him that an argument could be made to swap around a bit, but coming in at the number seven position is a fitting place for him.
Pain also came in at number eleven, just missing the top ten, among our Most Popular Naruto Characters, and I’d say he is in the running for the most popular villain of the entire show – potentially up against our next character on the list!

Number Six: Hashirama Senju
Just missing the top five and coming in at number six among the most powerful Naruto characters of all time is Hashirama Senju.
Hashirama was hailed as “The God of Shinobi” and his Wiki Fandom mentions that “Madara, another legendary shinobi openly admitted inferiority to Hashirama throughout their entire lifetime together” – which almost had me swapping their placement for a second….
After some more research and though I decided the number six slot was fair for Hashirama with Madara coming in just above him.
Hashirama at SHJ:
Number Five: Madara Uchiha
Making it to the top five among the most powerful Naruto characters of all time and the top ten among the most popular Naruto characters of all time is our third Uchiha on the list: Madara!
One source even listed Madara Uchiha as the strongest Naruto character of all time in terms of combat, not overall raw power – which should tell you just how strong of a character we’re dealing with.
Other lists even placed him above the next character on our list and closer to the top three to four in all of Naruto – but for the most part his placement was just above Hashirama and slicing his way into the top five of all time.
Madara at SHJ:
Number Four: Hagoromo Otsutsuki
At number four among the most powerful Naruto characters of all time we move into a legendary god-like figure in Hagoromo!
Hagoromo, being the son of Kaguya Otsutsuki, has the same insanely powerful chakra as his mother and is regarded as the Sage of Six Paths.
The placement here is pretty much agreed upon within most lists and sources, with only one or two trying to make an argument for Hagoromo being stronger than his mother.
Hagoromo at SHJ:
Number Three: Sasuke Uchiha
Coming in and making the top three among the most powerful Naruto characters of all time is our last Uchiha on the list, and fourth among the most popular: Sasuke!
While I would consider his brother Itachi an Anti-Villain, Sasuke comes in as an Anti-Hero throughout the series and almost every single list and source places him around the number three slot based on his overall power level by the end of the series.
Sasuke at SHJ:
Number Two: Naruto Uzumaki
Coming in at number two among the most powerful Naruto characters of all time (and also listed as number two among the most popular) is Naruto himself!
I should make a point to say: Naruto is the most powerful human in the series.
If we didn’t have our god-like members of Naruto on this list, Naruto would easily top it. Some lists and sources even place him at number one while including the Otsuki clan, so I’m curious to see if you agree with him at the number two slot, or the number one slot.
When you take an average of his placement and really break down the arguments, I think number two is the best spot for Naruto among overall power level.
Naruto at SHJ:
Number One: Kaguya
Coming in at number one among the most powerful Naruto characters of all time is Kaguya!
While the majority of the Naruto fanbase hates her, it’s hard to disregard her power level. One source describes it as: “The literal deus ex machina of the entire series, Kaguya, was the rabbit-demon puppet master pulling all the strings the whole time. The alien mother of the Sage of the Six Paths, it was Kaguya who first created and dispersed chakra. This gave her god-like powers, including flight, the ability to merge herself with nature, change environments, dimension-hopping, telepathy, chakra absorption, regeneration and the ability to create. In combat, she can use her bones as weapons and even a scratch from them will reduce a target to ash. She can shoot needles out of her hair and control its length and density.”
Would you place Kaguya at number one or does Naruto give her a run for her money?
Who else would you pull from the honorable mentions to bring up to this list?
