Kage is often considered the strongest shinobi known in villages. Through many difficult tasks, they rise to the top, gain great power and gain recognition from everyone. Although extremely powerful, there are a number of shinobi in the series honing their skills to the point of surpassing a regular Kage.
Here is a list of 10 Konoha ninja who are strong on the Kage level:
10. Uchiha Itachi
Itachi is famous as an elite shinobi of Konoha. In order to change the village for the better by bringing peace, Itachi always tries to be stronger than anyone else. Although he did not reach that goal due to circumstances, he had enough power far beyond ordinary Kage.
With the Mangekyo Sharingan, few are likely to be a threat to Itachi. Even without his eyesight, he was strong enough to fight the Nine-Tails’ chakra Naruto, this shows that Itachi is much stronger than we thought.
9. Namikaze Minato
Konoha’s Fourth Hokage – Minato Namikaze was an extraordinary figure in his time. After witnessing his abilities, Jiraiya said that Minato was the strongest shinobi he had seen in many years.
Minato’s strength comes from his speed, making him nicknamed the Golden Spark of Konoha. Minato’s ability was clearly visible during the Third World War.
8. Sarutobi Hiruzen
He is the Third Hokage of Konoha. According to many, Hiruzen was the most powerful of the Hokage in the golden age, including Hashirama Senju. As he got older, he was introduced to being stronger than all the Kage, as another testament to the Third High’s strength. Therefore, in the golden age, Hiruzen surpassed the normal Kage. In fact, he is one of the few people who can fight on many Kage-level enemies on his own.
7. Senju Hashirama
Hashirama was the first Hokage of Konoha, also known as the “god of shinobi”. Thanks to his great strength and peaceful love, he succeeded in uniting multiple clans, eventually establishing the first ninja village in the series. Naruto.
According to Madara Uchiha, Hashirama was the only shinobi capable of competing with him, Madara himself was able to defeat all the Five Great Kages at once despite not using his full power. Therefore, it’s easy to say that Hashirama is too strong for the average Kage level.
6. Uchiha Obito
Obito was originally a child without much talent and skill. But later, he played a big role in Naruto. As the Jinchuriki of the Ten-Tails, Obito is able to fight all of the shinobi alliance himself, including many Kage-level shinobi. Obito is truly an incredible ninja, his power can be compared to Otsutsuki.
5. Might Guy
As a rival to Kakashi Hatake, Might Guy is one of Konoha’s strongest men. When opening all eight gates in the Eight Gate, Guy’s power increased significantly. According to Minato, it was taller than the Five Great Kage combined.
However, it is a way of underestimating when it comes to Guy’s true power. After opening the eighth gate, he was able to fight the Six Paths of Madara, which greatly spoke of Guy’s abilities. Thanks to the help of his allies, he almost killed Madara, which confirms that Guy’s strength is great.
4. Uchiha Madara
Madara is one of the most powerful shinobi of all time in the entire Naruto series. A Uchiha, Madara possessed incredible power. Always hungry for power, Madara overcame the ordinary Kage by awakening the Rinnegan power, and eventually became the Jinchuriki of the Ten-Tails.
With ultimate power, very few shinobi are Madara’s opponents. Even without the Ten-Tails, he was still on the Kage level. With all his might, Madara could win against the entire shinobi alliance, with the exception of Naruto and Sasuke.
3. Kakashi Hatake (2-eye Mangekyo Sharingan)
After having Obito Uchiha’s Mangekyo Sharingan in both eyes, along with receiving the Six Paths Charka, Kakashi Hatake became one of the strongest shinobi of the series. His power increased significantly, even able to compete with Kaguya Otsutsuki in battle.
In fact, Kakashi is one of the few characters to hurt Kaguya thanks to his strength. Although the power was only temporary, at that time, Kakashi was almost invincible.
2. Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke is the strongest Uchiha clan in the Naruto world, and one of the most talented shinobi known. His strength only Naruto Uzumaki can resist in a battle. Sasuke could even overwhelm the Six Paths of Madara during the Fourth Shinobi World War.
Right now, Sasuke is definitely strong above the average Kage level a lot. He was on a level where he could fight against Otsutsuki gods like Kinshiki and Momoshiki.
1. Uzumaki Naruto
Naruto is the strongest shinobi known in the history of the series, quickly surpassing both Hashirama Senju and Madara Uchiha. Although the path to becoming a Hokage was difficult, Naruto finally achieved his goal many years after the war ended.
When it comes to power, no shinobi except Sasuke can fight him. Naruto can fight on par with gods like Momoshiki Otsutsuki. In the future of the Boruto series, the Seventh Hokage will probably be even more powerful.
