While Naruto often criticized for its lackluster inclusion of women in the story’s central plot points, surprisingly some of its strongest characters are female. Furthermore, unlike their male counterparts, when this particular group of women are given a chance to prove themselves, they rarely falter.
Whether it’s from a kekkei genkai passed down through generations, a special technique learned after hours of arduous training, or a combination of both, Naruto has many female characters with outstanding strength and Special fighting techniques. Below is a list of the strongest female characters in the story, based on their ability to overcome their opponents on any given day.
Konan doesn’t get much attention because she is often overshadowed by other members of Akatsuki. However, her skills are at the highest level. She became a shinobi under the tutelage of legendary ninja Jiraiya. She enhanced her abilities as an outlaw with the revolutionary ninja organization Akatsuki. She single-handedly nearly killed Obito, who only escaped death by running away. The unique – and deadly – technique is one she developed herself. Known as “paper ninjutsu,” it allows her to turn her chakra into paper and become anything that can be made of paper, from a paper copy of herself to entangling her opponents. to suffocate them.
11 Kurenai Yuhi
Although Yuhi is fondly remembered as Hinata Hyuga’s mentor, Team Eight’s supervising teacher, or Asuma Sarutobi’s lover, there was more to her than just her work and personal life. . Indeed, the fact that she was able to reach this level of Jonin mastery proves her skill. One of her first missions as a Jonin was to take down Itachi, proving she was also a first-rate shinobi. Kurenai’s art of choice is genjutsu or the art of creating illusions. As revealed in the Naruto sequel Konoha Shinden: Stream Ninja Scrolls, she has become so proficient in genjutsu that few others can match her abilities.
10 Temari Nara
Just because Sakura and Hinata get more attention than the other female members of Naruto’s shinobi group doesn’t mean there isn’t anyone else as talented as them. In fact, in Temari’s case, she is clearly their equal, and in some aspects even superior to them. Indeed, as the daughter of the Kazekage of Hidden Village, Temari developed a very clear understanding of the world from a very young age. As a result, she is not afraid of anything or anyone, except perhaps her brother Gaara. That attitude helped her reach Jonin level much faster than most other shinobi of the same age. Temari’s power is created through a combination of her Wind Release technique and her giant iron fan. When used in tandem, Temari can create winds that can flatten houses or blow opponents away.
9 Hyuga Hinata
Often portrayed as a “damsel in distress” in need of rescuing, Hinata remains one of the best female ninjas in Naruto. Although she often defers to others, no one can mistake her shyness for weakness. Hinata’s strength comes from her clan’s power, the Byakugan – one of the three “Great Dojutsu” that keeps them at the top in talent. Hinata’s experience of being shunned by her clan also helped her develop incredible resilience and determination, helping her prove herself as the best member of her clan. Accordingly, with the combination of the Byakugan and the practice of her clan’s Soft Fist technique, she can attack opponents near or from afar with chakra-draining attacks that can simultaneously damage and debilitate her. weak and helpless.
8 Tsume Inuzuka
While Tsume may be better known as Hana and Kiba’s mother, the fact that she reached Jonin level speaks to her strength, power, and abilities. Indeed, according to her son, Kiba, she was so tough that she caused his father to leave home forever. Tsume’s special ability is her clan’s Four-Legged Technique, which mimics the way dogs and wolves hunt and attack their prey. She is one of the most proficient users of the technique in her clan. Her abilities are enhanced by the fact that she often uses them in conjunction with her Ninken, Kuromaru. Ninken are specially trained dogs that cooperate with Inuzuka Clan members from a young age and eventually become their fighting partners in battle.
7 Sakura Haruno
Sakura may not have started out as one of the strongest women in the Narutoverse, but, like Hinata, through sheer determination and an uncanny ability to focus on her studies, she eventually advanced abilities and strengthen your thinking. Accordingly, Sakura’s power has three elements. First, she has the ability to control her chakra in the other world, which allows her to master her mentor Tsunade’s techniques, including increasing the power of her attacks or mastering the “Power” seal. of a hundred”. Second, Sakura’s deep understanding of medical ninjutsu not only allows her to know where to heal – but also where to harm with deadly effect. Third, it is her intelligence. What Sakura lacks in natural ability, she makes up for by thinking better than her opponents.
6 Anko Mitarashi
Although Anko is often considered one of Orochimaru’s experiments, she had special gifts and powers before becoming his disciple. In fact, her innate abilities are what attracted Orochimaru in the first place. As a member of her team at the Ninja Academy, Anko stands out as the best member. However, under Orochimaru’s guidance, Anko’s skill level increased significantly. He even taught her some of his signature techniques like the Hidden Snake Hand. After leaving Orochimaru’s tutelage, Anko continued to deepen and expand her abilities. Eventually, Anko’s abilities were recognized so much that she was considered a legend after the end of the Fourth Shinobi War, and was given the prestigious title of Tokubetsu Jonin.
5 Miss Chiyo
There is something to be said for your abilities when you are summoned from the afterlife because of your powerful techniques. During the Fourth Great Shinobi War, Chiyo was one of the deceased ninja with special skills revived by Yakushi Kabuto to aid him in his efforts to help Pain. Before her death, Chiyo was the leading expert in medical and ninjutsu in Cat An village. She used her skills in the field to concoct poisons that were almost perfectly effective. Indeed, the only one capable of resisting their effects is Tsunade. Chiyo is also a master of Puppet Ninjutsu or the art of creating and controlling puppets, all with the advanced training and advanced combat skills of a top level shinobi. And if her puppets aren’t enough, Chiyo also has the power to control up to 10 people to do her bidding.
If anyone is destined to become a major force in Naruto, it is Kurotsuchi. A descendant of the village’s first Tsuchikage, Kurotsuchi’s abilities are rooted in genetics and make her one of the strongest shinobi in the five Hidden Villages. As a young shinobi during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, she single-handedly took down Zetsu. Unlike the others on the list, there is no one special technique that defines Kurotsuchi’s strength. Instead, it is her advanced functionality in a range of abilities from nature transformation to swordsmanship to taijutsu that makes her special. She is the best shinobi in the group.
3 Mei Terumi
If the fact that she was the Mizukage, or leader of the Kirigakure, wasn’t enough proof of Mei’s power, there’s also the fact that she played a key role in the Fourth Shinobi War, fighting against return to Madara and face attacks from the strongest shinobi in history. In addition to her taijutsu skills, Mei also possesses two innate abilities, or kekkei genkai, that are extremely difficult for opponents to overcome. With Lava Release, Mei can eject a stream of highly acidic lava-like liquid that will burn or melt anything – including skin – it comes into contact with. Mei can also use Boil to spray a corrosive mist that melts anything that comes into contact with it.
Tsunade’s name is synonymous with power and strength. In her youth, Tsunade was one of the “Sannin,” a legendary shinobi trio considered the greatest shinobi team in history. Tsunade can use her chakra to gain superhuman strength, making her a great threat in combat. Tsunade was instrumental in developing medical ninjutsu, or the ability to use her chakra energy to heal others, which fundamentally changed the history of the shinobi world. During a battle, Tsunade can activate her Hundred Power seal to draw on the vast reserves of chakra she has accumulated over the years, along with her partner summoning Katsuyu, providing a healing effect. series that benefits all of her allies.
1 Kaguya Otsutsuki
Narutoverse would not exist without Kaguya, as she is truly the mother of chakra in humanity. Initially, no one can stop her except perhaps the real God Otsutsuki. For thousands of years, she lived without equal on Earth. In the end, both of her sons defeated and sealed her, but it was only a temporary victory. She returns centuries later and is still just as strong. Once again, only the reincarnation of her grandsons could stop them, and only thanks to the chakra and power they borrowed from the souls of the Sage of Six Paths. Although controversial because of the unexpected reveal at the end of the story, Kaguya is still the strongest female character in Naruto.
While Naruto may not often highlight or emphasize female characters, but the women on this list show that when creator Masashi Kishimoto wants or needs to, he can create strong female characters, as interesting, intelligent, and competent as their male peers and colleagues.
