Today I’m going to share the Top 10 Strongest Members of Konoha. As we all know that Naruto is one of the most hyped and famous anime of all time. It even ranks itself as the “Big 3” of anime verse.
The Naruto series portrays the lives and hardships of Shinobi. An orphan boy named Naruto wants to get acknowledgement from everyone in his village. In order to do so he strives for the position of Hokage (The Village Head of Konoha). His determination to become Hokage & unbending will to overcome any obstacle teaches us to never give up.
Please note that I have listed characters according to their skills, Iq, ability, strength, speed, etc. So there may be some characters who are stronger than the characters ranked in terms of raw power but they might have lacked something else to be fitted in the list and the list is based upon Naruto & Naruto Shippuden. So without wasting any more time let’s proceed to the list.
Status – Rogue Ninja
Orochimaru is one of the Three Legendary Sannins and the direct disciple of Hiruzen Sarutobi. He is the most mysterious character in the series. While others were crazy for power, wealth, and village he was only interested in learning every jutsus of the shinobi world.
To complete his dream he found a way to transfer his soul into other bodies. He always used powerful bodies of Kekkei Genkai users as his host. With time he became more powerful than before. His never-ending learning gave him the wisdom to overcome all most any situation. Without a doubt, he is one of the strongest members of Konoha.
Status – Anbu
Itachi Uchiha is the child prodigy of Uchiha. He was a genius and a person filled with wisdom. At only the age of 11, he joined ANBU and at 12 he became a Captain of an ANBU squad. His will to protect the village was so strong that at the age of 13, he killed his whole clan and became a rogue ninja to protect his clan’s name.
Itachi was an expert user of Sharingan. His Mangekyou Sharingan abilities were Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi. Amaterasu is a black flame that burns still the enemy turns into ash and Tsukyomi is Genjutsu once caught in it the caster can control the time and space inside of it. Itachi was an expert shinobi on top of that these abilities made him one of the strongest and most formidable foes in the show.
His half-body Susanoo had two weapons Totsuka Blade and Yata Mirror. Totsuka Blade can trap anyone’s soul inside it for eternity and the Yata Mirror can deflect any attack. This means Itachi’s Susanoo had absolute defense and offense.
Itachi’s whole life was filled with thrones his only salvation was to die in his brother’s hand. In normal circumstances, his growth and power-ups would have been unimaginable. Without a doubt he is one of the 10 Konoha Strongest Members.
Status – 4th Hokage
Minato Namikaze 4th Hokage of the Village is undoubtedly one of the strongest characters of the series. He is also the father of Naruto Uzumaki. To protect the village from the attack of Kurama he sacrificed his life.
He did not have any particular Kekkei Genkai or clan secret still only relying upon his high IQ and skills he strived up to the position of Hokage. He developed some formidable skills Flying Rajin, Shadow Clone Jutsu, and Rassengan. He was feared in the whole Shinobi nation as the Yellow Flash of Konoha.
In the 4th Great Ninja War Orochimaru reanimated him. He joined the battle and turned the table within a second or so. He even unlocked his KCM on the battlefield. His excessive talent and high battle iq made him one of the most formidable foes in the series.
Status – 6th Hokage
Kakashi the Copy Ninja is one of the most important and strongest figures in the series. He was the Jonin recruited to Team 07. Naruto & Sasuke’s primal development started at the hands of Kakashi. His clan Hatake is expertise in battle skills and high IQ.
His father Sakumo Hatake was feared in the whole shinobi verse as the White Fang of Konoha. They did not have any particular Kekkei Genkai or Clan secret skills. Relying solely on battle prowess and instincts they became one of the supreme clans of Konoha. Just like his father Kakashi was a genius in battle. On top of that, he obtained the Sharingan from Obito which made him a formidable foe.
With the help of Sharingan, he copied thousands of jutsus and got the name Copy Ninja Kakashi Hatake. His cold-blooded nature and determination to protect his teammates made him a beast on the battlefield. No matter what happens or whoever the enemy is he never lets any of his teammates die.
During the 4th Great Ninja War when team 07 was fighting against Kaguya, Obito gave Kakashi his both eyes and in the first attempt Kakashi manifested the Full Body Susanoo. DMS Kakashi is the strongest form of Kakashi. His Susanoo’s special ability is Kamui shuriken which can take anything to a different dimension upon contact. Kakashi destroyed half of Kaguya’s body with this skill.
Status – 1st Hokage
Hashirama Senju aka the God of Shinobi was the first Hokage and one of the founders of Konoha. As a Senju clan member, Hashirama was the arch enemies of the Uchihas. Yet Hashirama acknowledged Madara as his friend and Madara also acknowledged Hashirama as his friend and rival.
Hashirama and Madara were the reincarnations of Asura and Indra. They could not change their destiny of clashing with each other. Madara was strong to begin with on top of that he took control of Kurama and attacked Hashirama. Hashirama single-handedly defeated Madara and tamed Kurama in that battle.
Hashirama’s Wood Style Jutsu granted him inhuman healing capacities and regeneration powers. On top of that, his strength and battle prowess were second to none. Even Madara admitted defeat against him.
Status – Rogue Ninja
Obito Uchiha is one of the major antagonists of the show. He was the direct disciple of Minato. Despite being a Uchiha clan member Obito’s scores in Ninjutsu and Taijutsu were not that great. He was unable to unlock his Sharingan also. Yet he never gave up and tried his best to surpass his fellow classman Kakashi.
Obito got heavily injured in the process to save Kakashi. Everyone thought that Obito died in that incident but in reality, Madara rescued him and took him in his care. Madara transplanted Hashirama cells in Obito’s body and unlocked his Mangekyo Sharingan by trickery.
Obito’s MS ability Kamui is still one of the best Dojutsus in the show. Kamui is a space-time Dojutsu. The caster has a completely different world in which he can go and come out by using Kamui. Not only that by focusing on any object the caster can send that thing to the Kamui world.
Obito was immune to the harm of overusing MS because of Hashirama cells. So he used Kamui in a completely different way. Obito used to send some of his body parts to the Kamui world during battles. To the enemies, it looked like Obito is untouchable. Other than Konan and Kakashi no one was able to understand the trick behind Obito’s Kamui. He is also the creator & one of the Strongest members of Akatsuki.
4. Might Guy
Status – Jonin
Might Guy is the strongest taijutsu user in Naruto. He had a very little amount of Chakra in his body yet he dreamed of becoming a Shinobi. His father encouraged him and trained him harder and harder to achieve his dream. Might Guy’s unbending will and determination astonished others around him. Some made fun of him while some said that one day he will be one of the strongest.
Because of his low chakra capacity, Might Guy focused on Taijutsu more than Ninjutsu. He learned all kinds of Taijutsu and trained his body to beyond human capabilities. Might Guy’s strongest skill is 8 Gates of Taijutsu.
During the War arc, Might Guy unlocked the 8th Gate of Taijutsu the Gate of Death. It grants the user an insane boost in speed & strength at the cost of the user’s life. The attacks of 8th Gate Guy were so strong that even Juubidara could not block them. Madara acknowledged Might Guy and said, “I Madara! declare that you are the strongest of them all!”
Status – Rogue Ninja
Madara Uchiha aka the Ghost of the Uchiha is one of the major antagonists and strongest characters of Naruto. He is the legendary Uchiha who unlocked Rinnegan on his own. He was also the first person to unlock Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
Madara was so powerful that he never bothered to use his MS ability. His physical strength, battle IQ, and instincts were enough to solo the whole 4th Devison of the Shinobi alliance. He dominated all the 5 Kages alone. More precisely he toyed with them.
His full body Susanoo was strong enough to slice through mountains. He described that if he were to fight seriously then many mountains and rivers will disappear from the World Map. He defeated all 9 tailed beasts without his eyes and defeated Sasuke, Naruto and all reincarnated Hokages alone.
After obtaining the power of SO6P Naruto & Sasuke somehow managed to stand against him. Madara was stabbed by Black Jetsu or else the outcome of the battle was unpredictable. He played a vital role in the War Arc.
Status – Shadow Hokage
Sasuke Uchiha aka the Last Uchiha is the deuteragonist of the show and one of the strongest characters in Naruto. Sasuke had many changes of heart during his entire journey and all of them made him stronger than before.
He trained under the most mysterious and vicious Sannin Orochimaru which led him to learn almost all shorts of Jutsu of the Shinobi world. Sasuke’s arsenal doesn’t end in Indra’s Arrow or Amaterasu; he has many varieties of deadly & destructive Jutsus. He even has two personal summons.
Sasuke’s main strength lies in his Dojutsu. He has Rinnegan & EMS. His Rinnegan ability Amenotejikara helps him to travel through Time & Space. Other than that he can also switch places with anything or anyone during battles. Precisely because of this ability Sasuke is hard to hit.
Sasuke’s high battle IQ, instincts and loyalty & determination towards the village & his own people makes him one of the strongest member of Konoha.
Status – 7th Hokage
Naruto Uzumaki aka The Child of Prodigy is the protagonist of the series and the strongest character in Naruto. Naruto lost both of his parents in the attack on Kurama. There was no one to check his raise. So he was raised without proper care and always wanted everyone’s attention. To get acknowledged by everyone he decided to become the Hokage.
The journey to become Hokage is not easy and Naruto was very bad in ninja lessons. He just had one thing great that is his almost unlimited chakra capacity. His determination to overcome every obstacle made him stronger and stronger. By the series’ end, he became The Strongest Shinbo Alive along with Sasuke.
Naruto had one of the most unpredictable battle styles in the whole series. Because of that, he came up with jutsus that no one ever thought of. His unpredictability gave him the upper hand in many battles. On the War arc, he befriended Kurama and got a huge power-up.
He still went on growing in power during the battles. At last, he obtained the power of Sage of Six Paths and became strong enough to rival Madara. He is still growing stronger his future accomplishment are unknown to us.

Konoha Strongest Members Ranked
Naruto is a story of Shinobies. There are many villages like Konoha. But throughout the series, Konoha produced one after another great Shinobies. I have enlisted only 10 of them. There are still many more great and strong shinobis in Konoha who are in no way inferior to others. But still while making a list I must keep every aspect in my mind. So they sure have lacked in some aspects to be on this list of 10 Strongest Members of Konoha.
