Final Thoughts

Many formidable figures have appeared in the Naruto series. Some new characters were added in the last installment of the series, while a few recurrent ones got extraordinary boosts, pushing their power to the maximum levels.

Kaguya, Hagoromo, and Momoshiki are members of the Otsutsuki clan, an extraterrestrial tribe that is even more deadly than Madara. Others are among the few ninjas capable of competing with the hazardous Otsutsuki. Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, Guy, and Obito are examples of this.

Several Naruto characters with visual abilities, such as Rinnegan and Mangekyo Sharingan, are among the strongest. There are, however, exceptional martial arts experts as well as flamboyant combatants that depend on Tailed Beast chakra.

Tobirama, Minato, Nagato, The Six Paths of Pain, Kabuto, and Itachi are among the other great combatants in Naruto. Despite being highly powerful characters in their own right, they fall short of the preceding ones. The same is true for the remaining Kage and Akatsuki members.

There are ninjas with fascinating abilities even at lower levels. These individuals have terrifying bloodline skills or can employ strange tactics inherited from the clan to which they belong.
