Last updated:

Who is not familiar with Naruto? The most incredible Japanese manga series of all time tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, who is a young ninja willing to get recognized and become the leader of his village. All the characters are ninjas with special abilities. The Naruto Character tier list will rank characters on the basis of their skills that are of six categories.

The main ability is Taijutsu, the ability to fight physically with hands and feet. Then there is Genjutsu, which involves trapping someone in an illusionary world and making their brain inaccessible to them. The third technique is Ninjutsu, which is the ability to manipulate air, water, fire, and sand by hand signs according to their will.

Shuriken jutsu is yet another technique of summoning war tools like knives, shurikens, swords, etc. Jujutsu includes the ability to curse someone by putting a curse mark on their body. Some of the characters can mix two different types of elements, for example, some of them can manipulate sand and water making mud using it for their benefit in war. The characters vary based on the powers they possess.

The naruto main characters are Naruto and Sasuke. Naruto is the underdog, aiming to be the Hokage of his village where the people despise him because he has the Nine-tailed demon spirit locked inside his body. Sasuke on the contrary has trained himself so that he can take revenge on his brother who killed their entire clan. The main villains of the series are Obito Uchiha, and Madra Uchiha, who seek world peace by putting everyone in a Genjutsu while Kaguya Utsutsuki wanted to achieve all the Chakra there is.

Now the characters will be ranked based on the skills discussed above. This tier list includes the famous characters of the Naruto world that are worth mentioning.

A Tier

A Tier list of Naruto
A Tier

After discussing the Naruto stars of S+ and S tier, we shall now move towards the A tier of Naruto characters tier list. In the A tier the members are really good, obviously not as great as the ones mentioned in the above tiers.

There is a lot to write about each one of them but we will try to keep it as short as we can and try to do justice to each character’s skills.  These characters are awesome with some good qualities but they were not able to defeat the ones in S and S+ tiers in the Naruto series, we placed them in the A tier.

Naruto Uzumaki

Naruto was an incompetent ninja who failed to graduate from the academy three times consecutively. Through decisiveness and training his skills improved to beat powerful shinobis. He gained exposure from all the Sannins for his potential. Naruto was able to conquer various members of the Akatsuki, eventually gaining praise from Konohagakure.

He beat various reincarnated Kage. In the fourth shinobi world war, he also competed against the greatest rival, Madara Uchiha, but could not defeat him. Hence Naruto is placed below Madara in the Naruto Character tier list.

As an Uzumaki, he has huge aids of powerful chakra. He was capable to fight for three and a half days with strong rivals. Only in his battle with Sasuke, did he shows a little fatigue, even then he fought considerably. He was able to transfer his chakra to others and perform one-handed hand seals.

He became a pro in Shuriken Jutsu being able to throw weapons fast and precisely. His first technique was the shadow clone technique. Moreover, during his elemental affinity training, he learned that he could gain all the knowledge of a shadow clone right after it disappears.

From this, Naruto could use his mass scale of clones to speed up his training to gain years’ worth of experience in less time. His natural affinity is wind release. He was trained in senjutsu, which was only possible due to his high chakra reserves in addition to this he gained six path sinjutsu which allowed him to fly and also display up to nine truth-seeking balls.

Sasuke Uchiha

When he lost one of his arms, he understood to use one-hand seals.

Sasuke is very capable in taijutsu sufficiently to hold his own hand-to-hand fight against numerous opponents at the same time. His most even physical display is high speed. His brother gave him a cursed seal of heaven after their first confrontation. This seal reduces his own chakra and then substitutes it with a bigger amount of Orochimaru’s in return improving his power and speed. He has an eternal Sharingan.

Sasuke can use all five nature transformations, some of which he was able to utilize at the age of 13. He has a natural association with fire release as he mastered the great fireball technique at an early age which also shocked Kakashi Sensei. By adulthood, he was able to combine water and wind release to create ice similar to a fusion technique. Sasuke is also a tough user of lightning release making the first use of it with the Chidori taught by Kakashi.

His Sharingan was awakened at the Uchiha clan’s destruction. His Sharingan was so strong that he was given the nickname ”Sasuke of the Sharingan”. With his Sharingan, he could see the flow of chakra and accurately reproduce any movement. He can also use genjutsu Sharingan for broad purposes such as distraction, interrogation, or knocking targets out. He awakened Rinnagen in his left eye with three tomoe on each of its two innermost circles.

Sasuke is placed in the A tier of the Naruto Character tier list because he should be placed below Hagorama Senju, as he received half of his Chakra and the other half was given to Naruto.

Indra Otsutsuki

He was the firstborn son of Hogarama Otsutsuke. He was thought to be the most appropriate inheritor of his father’s education. However, his younger brother Ashura ended up getting it. This resulted in the two brothers fighting against each other. He was the creator of Ninjutsu and the ancestor of the Uchiha clan. Despite the loss of his mother and issues with Ashura, he has a bright and joyous childhood.

He spent quality time reading the books and journals that were written by his father. He learned ninshu in the hope of becoming the great Sage’s heir. Indra continued to amaze everyone with his natural capabilities and advanced growth rate showing his smart side. Thus other ninshu believers realized Indra’s example and began using this new invention to improve their quality of life.

When his Sharingan was awakened, Indra began to take the mysterious figure’s appreciation and focused on his training. Eventually, Hagoromo chose his successor based on the performances of his sons. He did this by tasking them each with the revival of a foreign land. After arriving at the destination he came to know that the land was very fertile due to the existence of a God tree.

However, he also realized that it caused the people there gradually grow sick from relying on its nutrients. Thus he decided to resolve things quickly by using his Sharingan to force the villagers to destroy the tree and discover water. But eventually, his father chose Ashura as his successor.

Indra was a very capable ninja of his time and worked extensively. Eventually, he realized his mistakes and repented over his flaws.

Hogorama’s spirit divided its powers among Naruto and Sasuke to make sure that his son’s reincarnation would be rejoined.

B Tier of Naruto
B Tier

B Tier

Here comes the B tier. Talking about Naruto, it’s quite difficult to place the shinobi based on their skills. But there is always the best and the worst in every era. In this tier, there are the ninjas who are either low in the abilities of the ones mentioned above or have lost battles against them during the series. Let us visit the B tier.

Might Guy

Might guy was the son of Might Duy. He was trained by his father. He was a great shinobi thus skilled to fight long battles. His chakra was huge. He has the eight gate technique, therefore he is able to open all eight gates that are limiting his chakra hence providing him enormous chakra.

Additionally when the last and eighth gate is opened the shinobi dies. Might Guy is famous for his historic fight with Madara Uchiha. He is perhaps the only shinobi who fought with Madara and brought him near death, although he wasn’t able to kill him.

Might guy is placed in the B tier of the Naruto Character tier list because he is skilled in only Taijutsu and none of the other jutsus. Another reason is that he was not able to kill Madara while Naruto and Sasuke were involved in killing him. Therefore, he is placed below them.

Tobirama Senju

He is Hashirama Senju’s brother. When Hashirama dies he is made the Hokage of the village hidden in the leaves. He is the second Hokage. Tobirama had discovered numerous jutsus on his own.

Hashirama is the biggest rival of the Uchiha clan and is able to control the Uchiha’s mind and control jutsu through his Flying Thunder God Mutually Instantaneous Revolving Technique, as a result of which he is able to attack without being visible to the human eye.

He is skilled in a number of jutsus like Bringer-of-Darkness Technique, Flying Thunder God Mutually Instantaneous Revolving Technique, Flying Thunder God Slash, Flying Thunder God Technique, Four Red Yang Formation, Heavenly Weeping, Mutually Multiplying Explosive Tags, Sensing Technique, Shadow Clone Technique, Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation, Water Release: Water Bullet Technique, Water Release: Water Colliding Wave, Water Release: Water Dragon Bullet Technique, Water Release: Water Fang Bullet, Water Release: Water Formation Wall, and Water Release: Water Severing Wave.

He is placed in the B tier because he died during a war with some normal shinobis, compared to others above it was not such an epic death.

Minato Namikaze

Minato is Naruto Uzumaki’s father. He has half of the chakra of the nine-tailed beast sealed in him. Minato uses the Yellow Flash Technique, in this technique he makes certain marks being disappeared on one mark and reappear on the next mark, and so on. Indeed was the fastest shinobi of his time. He was a very intelligent man and was the youngest Hokage of his time. Minato was able to fight with the nine-tailed fox and sealed his spirit in Naruto’s and his own body.

He is placed in the B tier because when Minato fights against Madara Uchiha, Madara cuts both of his hands.

Obito Uchiha

Obito Uchiha was the student of Minato Namikaze. During childhood, a huge stone falls on him and everyone considers him dead, but he was alive. During the time when Madara was considered dead, he found Obito Uchiha and keeps him with himself, and trains him according to his expertise. Madara gives him his Sharingan due to which he becomes extremely powerful.

He has enormous Jutsus that are, Animal Path, Asura Path, Black Receiver, Chakra Transfer Technique, Demonic Statue Chains, Deva Path, Earth Release: Hiding Like a Mole Technique, Explosive Landmines, Fire Release: Blast Wave Wild Dance, Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique, Fire Release: Phoenix Sage Fire Technique, Genjutsu: Sharingan, Hands of Flame, Human Path, Infinite Tsukuyomi, Izanagi, Kamui, Naraka Path, Outer Path, Outer Path — Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique, Preta Path, Regeneration Ability, Sealing Technique: Phantom Dragons Nine Consuming Seals.

He loses all hopes in life, he decides to capture all nine tailed beasts and with their energy, he will make such a genjutsu with the help of which everyone will be happy in an illusionary world. But Naruto and Sasuke defeat him.

Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi Hatake is one of Shinobi’s who is not an Uchiha but he has Sharingan. He has Sharingan in one of his eyes given to him by Obito Uchiha. By his Sharingan, he can copy any jutsu he sees once. He can not deactivate his Sharingan because it is not his own so to prevent his chakra from draining out he covers his Sharingan eye when he is not using it.  Kakashi was the trainer of Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura in team 7.

He was a great leader and worked hard to train the ninjas. Kakashi can operate all five basic nature transformations, as well as the Yin Release and Yang Release. He can use Water Release without a water source. With Earth Release he can move underground for hidden attacks and protect himself or large areas from invasion. Kakashi is always alert for any sort of danger or rivals. When he gets hold of an opponent’s weakness he can make up a great plan to defeat him. 

His drawback is that when he uses his Sharingan, all his chakra is drained and he is not able to do anything else.

Shin Uchiha

Shin Uchiha was not an actual Uchiha rather got impressed by the clan and hence adopted the surname. He was rather a test subject of Orochimaru. A very capable ninja, Shin always planned ahead. During his battle with Sakura, he fought very well although he had used a lot of his chakra he couldn’t defeat her. He had the ability to accept all types of genes inside him.

As he is not an Uchiha therefore he is not able to deactivate his Sharingan, still, he manages to have a lot of chakra despite constant use of Mangekyo Sharingan.  He can perform highly skilled attack patterns with the help of his Sharingan.

He is capable of  Object Manipulation Technique and Shin Uchiha’s Space-Time Dōjutsu. As he lost to Naruto and Sasuke, therefore he is not placed with them in the same tiers. Rather he lies in the Btier of this list.

C Tier

Naruto Characters who are average
C Tier

The C tier of the Naruto Character tier list is comprised of the ninjas that are lower in abilities than the ones in the S+, S, A, and B tiers. they lag behind them due to various reasons according to their roles in the series. We will now explain to them the reason they are kept below the others.

Killer B

He possesses the power of eight tailed beasts and can fully assemble them as well, obtaining a great amount of chakra by this. Since their youth, he used to solve a great mission that was allotted to him and his brother combined. Although he was a Jinchuriki, he was very caring and loving.

Hiruzen has all the five elements of nature transformation.

Although he was a pro, still he is placed in the C tier because he has no specific Sharingan or rinnegan nor does he possess any sage power. He is just physically powerful.

Nagato (Pain)

Nagato was a shinobi of Uzumaki clan. He had a dream of bringing peace to the ninja world however when his friend Yahiko died, he adopted the alias ”Pain”. He has rinnegan ey that was given to him secretly by Madar Uchiha. When he loses his friends he decides to use his rinnegan to bring them back to life to make his dream of peace come true by any means either good or bad.

The creation of Six Paths of Pain by the corpses of Yahiko and five other ninjas is called Pain. The powers he possesses are Almighty Push and Almighty Pull, in which he can introduce such a force by his hands that can destroy the whole village and such a pulling force that drags anything he wants right towards him.

Nagato is the main operator of all the six paths, if he is killed all the six paths are of no means. This is why he is kept in the C tier. Although Nagato is brought back to his senses by Naruto, who makes him believe that his way of bringing peace to the village is absurd, Nagato dies during this.


Gaara has a one-tailed beast named Shukaku, which is a desert beast. He himself can manipulate sand, having such strong defenses that he has a whole cloud of sand surrounding him. His skin has a whole strong covering of sand, when attacked only the covering gets ruptured.

Besides that, Gaara has large reserves of powerful chakra. His chakra levels are partially due to the fact that he is the jinchukiri of Shukaku, After Shukaku is removed from his body, there is no apparent difference in his performance. In battle, he manages to stay away from his opponents and rarely uses taijutsu.

During the war, he can not stand in front of Obito Uchiha for long, along with Kakashi Hatake who defeated him in no time when he had two Sharingan eyes. Hence placed in the C tier.

She inherited the life force and physical energy of both Uzumaki and Senju clans which enabled her to battle Madara Uchiha for over half a day without exhaustion but even survived by being kept conscious to recover others before being recovered herself. Her chakra resources are awesome enough to cure many shinobi during the final battle with Obito Uchiha. She has excellent control over her chakra.

She started storing her chakra into the Power of a Hundred Seal on her forehead. After the seal is removed she has access to the collected chakra. Although she uses the extra chakra for healing injuries or performing other jutsu, she can also share the chakra with others.

Tsunade has a number of personal flaws that do not interfere with her power to fight or lead the Village. For example, she is an alcoholic, often blowing all her money on booze.

His major jutsus are Dust Release: Detachment of the Primitive World Technique, Earth Release: Added-Weight Rock Technique, Earth Release: Fist Rock Technique, Earth Release: Golem Technique, Earth Release: Ultra-Added-Weight Rock Technique, Earth Release: Ultralight-Weight Rock Technique, Rock Clone Technique, Earth Release: Light-Weight Rock Technique, and Akuta, Earth Release: Moving Earth Core.

He died when he used all of his energy to defeat Ku. He gave up his life as he came to realize his flaws and negativity.


During the time of the third Hokage, Hanzo was considered the fastest shinobi. Even fighting against him for some time was a big achievement for the ninjas as he was so strong. He has the Sage of salamander, assembling the abilities of a salamander. His jutsus are Dance of the Sickle Blade: Falling Descent Blade, Fire Release: Exploding Flame Formation, Summoning Technique, and Summoning: Ibuse Poisoning.

D Tier

Naruto Worst Characters
D Tier


He was a great ninja and had tremendous knowledge. He passed on his incredible knowledge to his godson Naruto Uzumaki. Jiraiya was an outstanding teacher and a very versatile shinobi.

He was a very potent ninja and was offered to become a Hokage three times but he denied the offer as he thought that his personality has some flaws that are not suitable for a Hokage. He never used any jutsu as he was way too concerned about his appearance to the opposite sex which is why he is placed in the D tier of the Naruto Character tier list.


Orochimaru was a scientist. He sought immortality for himself and for this purpose he performed various unethical experiments on many fellows. He competed against Hanzo, having a huge amount of chakra. Orochimaru can use all five nature transformations. He can summon snakes ejecting them from his mouth and sleeves, also being able to turn his lower body into a snake tail which helps to increase his speed.

Orochimaru knows almost all the jutsus. He is the master of jutsus. Naming all of them is not possible. Some of them are Binding Snake Glare Spell, Casualty Puppet, Chakra Scalpel, Earth Release: Hiding Like a Mole Technique, Earth Release: Shadow Clone, Eight Branches Technique, Five Elements Seal, Formation of Ten Thousand Snakes, Four Black Snakes Formation, Gathering of the Snakes, Hidden Doorway Technique, Hidden Shadow Snake Hands, Hideout Destruction Trap, Hiding in Surface Technique, Living Corpse Reincarnation, Orochimaru’s Juinjutsu, Orochimaru-Style Body Replacement Technique, Regeneration Ability, Reversible Technique, Self-Healing Technique, Shadow Clone Technique, Slithering Snake Mode, Snake Clone Technique, Snake Mouth Bind, Soft Physique Modification, Sound Wave Technique, Space-Time Technique Formula, Substitute Technique, Summoning Technique (Shinigami, Snake), Twin Snakes Mutual Death Technique, Vanishing Facial Copy Technique, White Snake Possession, Wind Release and many many more.

His schemes lacked foresight and failed many times. He is relentless and thus placed below despite his abilities that are overshadowed by his flaws.

Sakumo Hatake

Sakumo Hatake was Kakashi Hatake’s father. Although he was not much seen in the series he has many abilities similar to Jiraiya and Orochimaru. He had incredible ninja art. In his time he was said to be truly powerful. Even the idea of fighting him brought fear to the enemy’s minds.


Yamato was a wood-style user. He had cells of Hashirama in his body. His boy has comparatively less chakra so he can utilize the wood style to a limit. His talents were shown to be enough to join the Anbu even when he was a child.

Due to his potential, Danzō took him on as his personal trainee and trained him by himself. Yamato was an admiringly capable ninja, having one of — if not the finest service record of anyone working under the Third Hokage — leading the Fifth Hokage to have the highest trust in him.

Kisame Hoshigaki

Kisame had Sharke Sage. He is an awesome water style user thus knowing many jutsus. He was one of the deadliest villains of the series, being a member of Akatsuki. Kisame has the power of a one-tailed beast.

He is placed in the D tier of the Naruto Character tier list because in the end he was killed by an ordinary ninja.


Konan is an Akatsuki, being an amazing paper-style user she can convert herself into paper. Moreover, she was the right hand of Pain.


Sasori was a puppet master, rather the best puppet master in the shinobi world. He assassinated the third Kazekage into his human puppet without anyone knowing it. He was trained by his grandmother, Chiyo, in puppetry.

Sasori was an extremely emphatic puppeteer and had a great talent for controlling his puppets. As a result, he created a number of creative ones including the three main puppets that Kankurō used. He is also an Akatsuki, but he is physically very weak.


Kakazu was an Akatsuki. He was immortal as he had many hearts, in order to kill him one must destroy all his hearts first. Naruto had to develop a new jutsu to kill him. He fights with his tools like a sword and shuriken but has less energy. He has a tail with which he hits the opponents.

E Tier

E Tier of Naruto
E Tier


Gina Uchiha

Gina’s main jutsu is Medical Ninjutsu. Her Uchiha Flame Formation is when she displays small flames on each finger of one hand and slams her palm on the ground which results in the formation of a barrier that surrounds the location of anything she is protecting, within and the burning of whatever comes into connection with the barrier’s surface. Gina’s other good jutsu is Fire Release in which she breathes fire with a cord that moves forward in a straight line, which thus results in firing up the enemy.

She has no special abilities which is why she is kept in the E tier of the Naruto Character tier list.

Sakura Haruno

Sakura is a great medical ninja. When she was assigned to group 7, she realized that she was not absolutely fit to become a shinobi. However, she trusted herself and her knowledge and became a medical ninja, curing illness. When she was at the Academy, she consistently scored high test scores. It is because of her persistence in her studies that Sakura originally worked in combat.


He was the son of the Fourth Kazekage, therefore he was a very skilled shinobi. He leads the Surprise Attack Division during the fourth shinobi war. Kankuro was a good leader. He was Gaara’s bodyguard. He was the one who killed Sakon and Ukon.

On the contrary, his taijutsu and durability are extremely bad hence placed in the E tier of the Naruto Character tier list.


Diedra is a clay-style user making bombs with clay. His weakness is that he was killed by Sakura who is also not physically strong.


Hidan only has a few jutsus, and this one is his trump card, he uses this jutsu to protect him from his enemy/enemies because of course he doesn’t know his enemies very well, that’s why he uses this jutsu so he can avoid getting himself killed if his opponents do his ultimate trump card jutsu. Provided that, he doesn’t do this for showing off but to make sure he gets rid of his enemies real fast and easily.


Haku is a very competent shinobi, even if that isn’t exactly what he’s aiming for. If it means being useful for Zabuza, he’ll do what it takes to be an exceptional shinobi. He has Kekkei Genkai by which he can release the ice. However,  he may be strong, but it’s reasonable to presume that he’s not the most promising person out there. He would rather take a hit here and there than kill someone.

Kurenai Yuhi

Kurenai is a Genjutsu user. However, her Genjutsu is so weak that when the opponent says ”release”, the effect of this jutsu is finished. This is why she is kept in the E tier of the Naruto Character tier list as she does not possess any great skills.

Zabuza Momochi

Zabuza was a great swordsman of the village hidden in the mist. He is a water-style user, making dragons, shurikens, and his own clones for fighting the opponent. He was Haku’s master and used him for his own safety while Haku was just a little boy. Certainly, Zabuza was an evil villain.

Shikamaru Nara

Shikamaru is a shadow-style user. He is a very lazy shinobi, spending most of his time sleeping. Shikamaru always showed poor grades at the academy. While he was in team 10, his leader came to know that he was not as bad as his grades were. He was the one who killed Hidan.

Neji Hyuga

He has Bakugan eyes, she can see things far beyond. Such ninjas are majorly used as detectives due to their vision. He has the Eight Tiegrms technique, with which he can detect chakra in the opponent’s body and minimize it.

F Tier

All naruto characters of the F tier have nothing special in them. They are not the shinobi who play vital roles in any battle or war.

Best Naruto Characters 

It is no doubt that every character in our Naruto character tier list holds a special place in the hearts of the fans. Without any of them, Naruto would be incomplete. However, some Naruto characters managed to strike the cord of our hearts more than others. Below are some of the most popular and beloved characters in Naruto that made the show what it is today. 

Kakashi Hatake 

The cool teacher is everyone’s favorite and he is the kind of guy that goes out after graduating college to get a beer with you. Not only was Kakashi the best counselor to the trio, but he was also a friend to many others. Kakashi is a complex character and he has a very calm demeanor. He is still devoted and smart and always tries his best to cheer everyone up. Kakashi does not let his sad past get in the way of his present. The story behind him is tragic and extremely heartbreaking. 

Naruto Uzumaki  

Another great character in Naruto is the protagonist himself. Even though he was the main character, he did not win many popularity polls Due to his play good in the series. His character development seems somewhat limited, by the end of the manga, he became a pretty likable character.

Naruto’s flaws are what made him so special and his unshakable principles and stubborn optimism are what you would like to see and the main protagonist of a series. 


He was introduced as an opponent to Naruto and his experiences were what made him a sociopath. His heartbreaking story made many fans teary-eyed. Even though he was a villain for some time, with the help of Naruto he became not only the leader of his village but also a great friend.  


Nagato or Pain was the most psychologically complex and physically powerful villain in the series. It was no doubt that he was easily manipulated by others and it eventually led to his demise but his back story is what makes him so unique. Not only was he given some of the best cards in the series but his ideologies made many fans wonder. 

Ending Note

So! this was huge, wasn’t it? Naruto is one of the best animes as placed in the S tier of our Anime tier list. The Naruto series is available on Netflix.
