1. Kaguya Otsutsuki
Topping off the list as the strongest anime character in Naruto verse, we have the mother of the Sage of the Six Paths, Kaguya Otsutsuki. Princess Kaguya is widely regarded as the creator of chakra as she became the first wielder of chakra after having consumed the fruit from the forbidden God tree.
The fact that she has an unmatched visual prowess including Byakugan and Rinne Sharingan along with having mastered the ability to change time and space makes her the most powerful and formidable enemy in the Naruto storyline.
2. Hagoromo Otsutsuki
Hagoromo Otsutsuki also known as the Sage of Six Paths makes it on the list as the second strongest anime character in Naruto. Along with being a legendary figure who had a major role in creating the ninja world, Hagoromo also founded various ninjutsu artforms.
Hagoromo’s true sense of power is measured when he had to take on his mother, Princess Kaguya. He along with his brother, Hamura, defeated the ten-tailed form of their mother and sealed the beast within himself, also making him the first and most powerful Jinchūriki.

3. Madara Uchiha (Reanimated)
Madara Uchiha is one of the founding members of the Hidden Leaf Village. While Madara was portrayed weaker than Hashirama in the early stages of the show, Orochimaru’s Reanimation Jutsu brought back a powerful reincarnation of Madara Uchiha with some unique and unparalleled abilities.
The reanimated Madara’s display of strength was showcased in a lot of fights including the one in which he took on some of the greatest ninjas – the five Kages all by himself and still coming out on top.
His ultimate three-eyed form including visual prowesses like the Eternal Mangekyo and the Rinne Sharingan along with the sealed ten-tailed beast makes him one of the forces that’s not to be reckoned with in the Naruto universe.
4. Toneri Otsutsuki
Up next, we have Toneri Otsutsuki, the first member of the Otsutsuki clan on our list of the strongest Naruto characters. With a chakra mode similar to Naruto’s, Toneri possesses the ability to fly and has access to the truth-seeking black chakra orbs which hold the power to demolish and annihilate an entire forest cover.
While Toneri was beaten by Naruto, at its peak, his powers still stand out as one of the most impressive in the series including visual prowesses like Tenseigan and Byakugan. His true sense of power was depicted when Toneri threatened to destroy the Earth and chopped the moon in half while fighting with Naruto.

5. Obito Uchiha
The fact that Obito Uchiha, Kakashi’s childhood friend, turned out to be one of the main antagonists of the series was revealed as a twist in the storyline. The mystery identity behind the mask of Tobi came as a shock to almost the entire fandom.
Apart from being a ninja mastermind, Obito’s visual powers of the Uchiha heritage – Sharingan and the Rinnegan from Nagato coupled with his Jinchūriki form of the ten-tails and his teleportation ability of Kamui made him one of the bad and most powerful characters in the Naruto verse.
Some Honorable Mentions
1. Hamura Otsutsuki
As the son of the most powerful Naruto characters and the fraternal twin of Hagoromo, Hamura Otsutsuki also inherited a similar powerful chakra. Apart from being the founder of the shinobi of the Moon, he also holds incredible powers including Six Paths Senjutsu, Byakugan, and Tenseigan along with the Truth-seeking balls.

2. Indra and Asura Otsutsuki
Both Indra and Asura are the sons of Hagoromo Otsutsuki. The sibling’s powers are so evenly matched that it became important to include both of them in the same category as a duo. While the sibling rivalry to become the strongest shinobi had ceased generations ago, their spirits could be seen in the battles of Madara-Hashirama and Naruto-Sasuke.
3. DMS Kakashi Hatake
Apart from his great shinobi skills and speed, the Dual Mangekyo Sharingan form of Kakashi Hatake is an absolute powerhouse. The DMS Kakashi essentially becomes a Demigod figure leading up to form one of the strongest Susano’o in the series along with the deadly Kamui lightning blade.
