    Damn y’all were sleeping on obito heavy. He literally has the second most broken jutsu in all of Naruto. Minato only beat him cause obito was inexperienced and flying thunder god is literally the only counter to it.

    Alex Central20 kun oldin

    I feel like obits and madara should be higher because obits had the most op kamoui in the whole series and madara was just a beast. Also how tf u put sage of six paths 4th 😂 bruh whoever made the list needs to actually watch naurto, it goes six paths sage, naurto,kaguya,madara,sasuke,obito,etc these should be the top 3.

  58. Alex Central

    8th gate Guy stomps anyone in the Naruto verse. 19:51 because plot... It seems like if he's opened a gate before he can jump straight to it, hence why during the 4th great ninja war he jumped straight to the 7th, he had never used the 8th gate before so he opened the 7th then the 8th.

  80. DreamySteezy

    DreamySteezyOy oldin

    I say: 1. Guy 2. Kaguya 3. Naruto 4. Sasuke 5. Hashirama 6 Madara Naruto is stronger than Sasuke and Hashirama is stronger than Madara, I don't know how people don't see that. Boruto hoe'd my niggas though.

  81. michael H

    Naruto was throwing bijuu infused rasenshuriken at Sasuke like ten at a time “he was holding back to not hurt him” okay lol

  82. Kol Snowden

    Kol SnowdenOy oldin

    Bro naruto is way fkn stronger then sasuke, he gets even more stronger then him after their fight because he gets the other half of kurama and a new arm while sasuke just gets weaker because he doesn't have the tailed beast absorbed chakra anymore, if we had to scale their strength out of 10 sasuke would be like a 7/10 and naruto being like a 12/10 🤣

    Dan The ManOy oldin

    Itachi can not beat obito idgaf

  103. DreamySteezy

    DreamySteezyOy oldin

    @Dan The Man again, Obito also had kamui so Obito could counter Kakashi's kamui yet they were equally matched. Also, what could Obito do against Itachi's genjutsu, amateratsu, Susano'o, etc. By the logic you're trying to use not even Kaguya could beat Obito because she doesn't have kamui lol, hell Minato found out how to counter kamui after a few seconds of fighting Obito and Itachi and Minato are in the same range of intelligence. Also Itachi was as fast as Kurama link mode Naruto during their fight during the 4th great ninja war so you're wrong about him being too slow to keep up with Obito and his kamui.

  104. Dan The Man

    Dan The ManOy oldin

    @DreamySteezy cause kakashi has something against kamui and itachi doesnt simple hes also not fast enough to dodge it and counter like minato so what is he gonna do about it

  105. DreamySteezy

    DreamySteezyOy oldin

    @Dan The Man Kakashi and Obito both had one part of kamui so Kakashi was not at an advantage, their MS abilities were perfect counters to each other, and having the same ability they were still evenly matched. If you knew anything about power scaling you'd know that ( Itachi> Kakashi) + (Kakashi= Obito) = ( Itachi> Obito). It's not that hard to understand, how is Obito more powerful than Itachi when he's not even more powerful than Kakashi who we know is weaker than Itachi lmao.

  106. Dan The Man

    Dan The ManOy oldin

    @DreamySteezy kakashi was not on par with obito in the war their fight was pretty much taijutsu only and kakashi also had kamui which was the perfect counter for obitos strongest ability which itachi doesnt have so yeah obito>>>>itachi in terms of power

  107. DreamySteezy

    DreamySteezyOy oldin

    Kakashi couldn't beat Itachi, Kakashi was on par with Obito during the 4th great ninja war before Obito became the ten tails jinchuriki. Itachi> Obito.
