Hokages are the mighty shinobi of the village. Hokage are the Guardian of the village.
In this Naruto Hokage list, we are going to rank all the 7 strongest Hokage by their might. As the title suggests, this is a list that begins with the weakest and ends to the strongest Hokage. Obviously, all of you people are not gonna agree with us. That is practically impossible, right? Whatever we say, someone somewhere is gonna deny that.
For example: If you say Kakashi is stronger than Tsunade, a lot of you will agree & at the same time, a lot of you won’t.
7) 6th Hokage Kakashi Hatake
Kakashi of the Sharingan, Kakashi the copy ninja and many more of his name was known to all of the 5 villages. Kakashi in his prime was obviously could take down any of the other shinobi from this list. And by Prime, I meant the time when he had 2 Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
Kakashi could perform the complete Kamui at that time. Meaning, he could use both short range and long range Kamui. At the same time with his intellectual ability and knowledge over thousands of jutsu, he could perform anything in the deadliest way possible.
However, when Kakashi became the Hokage he did not have any of the Sharingan eyes. So, we got no option to put him higher. Though later he changed his Raikiri into Purple Lightning, but still without the Sharingan we couldn’t put him any higher.
- Sharingan mastery
- Copied over a thousand jutsu
- Youngest to become Chunin, Jounin & Anbu
- Intelligence & critical analytical ability
6) 5th Hokage Tsunade Senju
Tsunade is one of the 3 Legendary Sannin. The other 2 were Jiraiya & Orochimaru. Tsunade is well known for his mitotic regeneration and monstrous physical strength. The 5th Hokage could precisely control chakra and perform a critical medical treatment.
Lady Tsunade is the 1st Hokage Hashirama Senju’s Granddaughter. In the Third Data Book, she had 35marks on total 40. She is specialized in medical ninjutsu. In fact, she was the one who proposed to have at least 1 Medical Ninja in every 3 man squad. Because of her proposal, countless lives were saved in the 3rd great ninja war.
Lady Tsunade is considered the greatest Medical Ninja ever in all 5 great nations.
- Mitotic regeneration power
- Long range healing ability from a great distance
- Legendary Sannin
5) 2nd Hokage Tobirama Senju
The 2nd Hokage is one of the strongest ninjas in the history. He was the younger brother of Hashirama Senju- the 1st Hokage. Tobirama created numerous ninjutsu including several forbidden jutsus such as- reanimation jutsu.
Tobirama Senju is the one who created the Flying Raijin jutsu and the Shadow Clone Jutsu. He could use all the 5 Chakra nature and the Yin-Yang release as well. The 2nd Hokage is the one who defeated Izuna Uchiha who was at that moment, stronger than his brother Madara Uchiha.
- Created most of the jutsu and academy
- Flying Thunder God
4) 3rd Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi
The Third Hokage is the wisest among this Naruto Hokage list. Hiruzen Sarutobi is also known as the professor. He knew literally each and every jutsu of the hidden leaf village. The Third Hokage could perform and counter any jutsu using another one. He could use all the 5 chakra nature & Yin and Yang too. His mastery and knowledge over jutsu and chakra nature earned him the title “The God of Shinobi” alongside with the sage of the six paths and the 1st Hokage.
The third Hokage knew any and all the jutsu in the Hidden Leaf village, except the Kekkei Genkai, Kekkei Mora & Kekkei Tota. That means, he knew everything that is learnable. And because of that, he knew exactly how to counter any jutsu with something. Basically, that earned him a new nickname, The Professor.
- Profound knowledge over each and every learnable.
- Mastery over all 5 chakra nature
- Was known as the God of Shinobi
3rd Hokage’s father
Third Hokage’s father’s name is Sasuke Sarutobi. Mikoto- Sasuke’s mother named Sasuke after the Third Hokage’s father.
Who is the 3rd Hokage’s son
Asuma Sarutobi was Third Hokage’s son. But he had another elder son. Because Konohamaru was his Grandkid. And as Konohamaru called Asuma, ‘Uncle’, the Third Hokage has to have another son who was Konohamaru’s father.
Now, there is two explanation, one- Konohamatu’s father left the village. Two- he died on a mission at a very early age.
3) 4th Hokage Minato Namikaze
The yellow flash of the leaf is considered the fastest ninja ever lived. People often mistook his immense raw speed with the teleportation technique he performed. He was also called the Savior of the World. Due to his sharp intellect, precise decision making and mastery over ninjutsu Kakashi Hatake and the Third Raikage considered that no one could ever surpass him.
Minato’s strongest point was his speed. On top of that, he was a sensory type ninja. So, he could sense an enemy attack from miles away. According to Wikipedia, with a simple body flicker, he could engage the enemy or retrieve ally without anyone realizing.
- Fastest ninja ever lived.
- Child of Prophecy.
- Ended the 3rd Great Ninja War singlehandedly.
- Flying Raijin.
- Profound intellect and critical analytical ability.
- Sage Jutsu.
Why didn’t Minato’s arm regenerate
During the fight against Juubi Obito, as Minato’s hand got cut off, it didn’t regenerate. Though he was under reanimation jutsu, his hand remained unchanged. That was surprising for us.
The reason behind that was, Obito used six paths yin-yang release, that nullifies all ninjutsu.
Yondaime is a Japanese word. It means 4th or Fourth. So, when you say Yondaime Hokage, it implies 4th Hokage. When you say, Yondaime Kazekage, it means 4th Kazekage.
