To protect a ninja village from enemy incursions, a special figure is required. In fact, in addition to being a bureaucrat dealing with assigning missions and filling out paperwork, the Hokage is the Leaf Village's strongest defense and so far with Boruto: Naruto the Next Generations, There have been 7 since Konoha's birth.
Boruto and Naruto's Hokages had a positive impact on the village, but who was really the strongest? Let's make a ranking of the leaf village's seven Hokage.
Seventh place for the penultimate Hokage so far presented in this world. Kakashi Hatake is definitely a great ninja But he only held that position after losing his Sharingan, his most powerful weapon. Despite his skills and experience, as well as deadly movements like Raikiri, he cannot hold a candle against other Hokage under these conditions.
Sixth place instead for Tsunade, the niece of Hashirama. The woman has excellent healing skills, a seal to store chakra and monstrous power, and some excellent incantations. Her skills are superior to those of a normal ninja, but still focus more on a support role than that of combat and are therefore disadvantaged compared to other Hokage.
The top 5 open with Hiruzen Sarutobi, a legendary ninja who can use many magical techniques, but also has great skills in close combat. While we see him mostly as the elder in Naruto's manga and anime, Sarutobi was at the height of his strength when he played the role of a meaningful ninja.
Fourth position for the fourth hokage, Minato Namikaze. His career in this role lasts very little: after the third major ninja war, in which he also faces the fourth Raikage and the killer bee, he dies during the attack by Tobi and the nine-tailed fox at the beginning of Naruto. However, his skills are amazing: not only is he the creator of techniques like the Rasengan and the Instant Displacement technique, but he can also use magical arts of all kinds.
You enter the top 3 with the third Hokage, Tobirama Senju. As the founder of the Leaf Village and one of the strongest ninja of his time, he took over the role of defender of Konoha after the death of his brother. Taijutsu, Ninjutsu, Genjutsu: Tobirama has mastered every skill to perfection and has repeatedly overpowered opponents of great strength and danger.
There We award the silver medal to the older brother Hashirama Senju, first hokage in the village where Boruto lives. As a member of the Senju clan, he has a chakra of extraordinary strength and endurance and at the same time is endowed with a unique art. The name given to him, "God of Shinobi", does justice to the character and almost brings him to the top of the ranking.
The However, the protagonist Naruto Uzumaki steals the highest place on the podium. We saw Naruto's growth in both the first series and in Boruto: Naruto the next generations, and all of his abilities - from those inherited from his parents to those gained through the reincarnation of Asura, to the Techniques with the nine-tailed fox chakra - make him one of the most powerful ninja ever in the world, created by Masashi Kishimoto, who is only inferior to the Otsutsuki.
