Who is the strongest female character in Naruto? Everyone knows it’s Kaguya Otsutsuki. However, she was not a female ninja as you know.

So, in this list, we will be talking about 11 strongest female ninja characters.

11) Tenten

She is the student of Might guy who is the best Taijutsu user in the entire Naruto and Naruto Shippuden series. She is the teammate of the best Taijutsu Specialist in Konoha – Rock Lee and the Most Gifted Genius of his generation Neji Hyuga.
You can’t blame her to be overshadowed by the likes of them. However, you can’t just ignore her skills in the long-range weaponry.

10) Kurenai

Yes, the Genjutsu girl. Kurenai was the one who tried to cast Genjutsu on Itachi Uchiha.
Ok, let’s just laugh again for her brilliant idea.
Jokes, aside she did nothing wrong. she just wanted to stop them with the best option in her arsenal. And she just didn’t know about the Genjutsu master Itachi.  

9) Anko Mitarashi

She was the student of one of the legendary Sannin, Orochimaru. Her skills were very impressive. Even Orochimaru wanted to make her the next vessel for his forbidden techniques.

8) Karin Uzumaki

Being an Uzumaki, Karin inherited huge chakra reserve naturally. She was also very sharp at sensing others chakra from a very long distance.
Another one of her remarkable abilities were her healing ability. We saw time after time how she saved Sasuke’s life after Killer Bee kicked his ass.

7) Hinata Hyuga

The Byakugan Princess, Hinata is one of the main branch family members of the renowned Byakugan clan. Like any other Byakugan users, Hinata could use Gentle fist and strike directly to the opponent’s chakra point.

6) Temari

The first time we saw her in the Chunin Exam Arc, alongside with Garaa and Konkuro. Temari is basically a long distance wind style user. Most of all she has a sharp intellect to analyze the situation and act upon that.

5) Kushina Uzumaki

The redhead habanero. We could easily place her anywhere in top 3 places. Kushina had a very special kind of chakra. Even among the Uzumaki, she was special.

For that reason, she was selected to be the next Jinchuriki of 9tail fox after Mito Uzumaki.

Though the vessel, Jinchuriki dies after the extraction of the tailed beast, Kushina did not die after Tobi sucked the 9tail out of him. After giving birth to Naruto and the extraction of the tailed beast, she managed to put up a barrier strong enough to hold the complete 9tail. Later she blocked Kurama’s attack alongside with Minato with her body.

And after all of this happened, Minato sealed some of her chakra inside Naruto to control the 9 tails. But, as we never saw her full abilities, we just can’t put her any higher.

4) Tsunade Senju:

Princess Tsunade is the Granddaughter of the First Hokage Hashirama Senju. She is also the 5th Hokage. Tsunade is well known for her monstrous strength, insane medical ninjutsu & inhuman Mighty regeneration ability 100 healing jutsu.

She can also heal everyone from a long distance by using her summoning Katsuyu.

Lady Tsunade was so strong in physical strength that, she cracked Madara’s Susanoo with her sheer strength.

3) Sakura Haruno

She is a member of Team 7. Sakura learned Jutsu from the 5th Hokage Tsunade Senju. She became extremely well in chakra control as time passes.

Though, she was quite good at it from the very beginning of the show. Remember, the first time Kakashi explaining what is chakra & how to climb up on trees?

Back then Naruto and Sasuke used or should I say wasted a lot of chakra climbing up the tree?

Well, it is no secret that all three members of the team 7 have long surpassed the Legendary Sannin. And that includes Sakura too.

2) Konan

One of the members of Team Jiraiya. Konan got shadowed by the other 2 students Yahiko and Nagato. But, Konan herself is a pretty damn strong ninja. She is good at long distance battle. With her paperwork, I mean paper bomb and other ninjutsu she is OP nonetheless.

Not to mention, she can fly too. This adds an extra layer to her attacking ability. During the fight against Tobi, we saw how dangerous she could be. Though, Tobi was a bit careless and underestimated her.

1) Lady Mizukage

And the number one spot is of course for Lady Mizukage. You can’t just simply underestimate a two Kekkei Genkai user. Don’t get distracted by her appealing look. She is the deadliest female ninja you will ever get to see.

  1. Hinata and temari should be higher on the list than sakura many times many many people say sakura is weak and she does cry a lot lie a lot and she cant even stab Obito. that isnt strong.

    1. wow, so crying, a normal human function, and the fact that she lies are both what determines strength? she lied like once, i’m assuming you mean the “playing with naruto’s feelings” thing, and she did with good intentions. crying is a completely normal human function, and if you’re going to use that to undermine her abilities then you should look at hinata who basically squirms away from anything remotely startling for the entire first half of naruto. sakura has the same ability set as tsunade, and tsunade is already above hinata and temari and because sakura surpassed her mentor it would make sense for her to be above them.

    2. Sakura surpassed Lady Tsunade, one of the legendary sannin and also the 5th hokage. The rest of the female ninja in the leaf aren’t even close to being Kage level.

  2. THERE IS NO WAY HINATA IS #7. SHE IS THE LITERAL PRINCESS OF THE HYUGA CLAN, OF THE BYAKUGAN. AND THERE IS ALSO NO WAY SAKURA, IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST. Hinata can literally knock her out in at least 3 blows. That’s all I’m saying.

    1. I don’t think Hinata could beat Sakura, especially not in three blows. I would say Hinata is the strongest female in the leaf after Sakura. Sakura is a Kage level ninja

  3. Tsunade is the strongest kunoichi ever, and Konan is the 2nd
    Mizukage is not even in the top 3
    Mizukage can’t even touch obito, while Konan killed him and he used izanagi

    This is not a ranking of strength, this is a ranking of the opinion of this site’s owner!
