To celebrate Naruto, one of the longest-running and most popular manga and anime of all time and not just in Japan, Narutop99 was launched in early 2023 worldwide popularity poll which therefore sees all the fans in the world to vote for their favorite character and the most beautiful fight.

After a few weeks of voting and a few months of waiting, the time had finally come revealed the result of Naruto's popularity poll. Here are the top 20 most popular Naruto characters:

  1. Minato Namikaze;
  2. Itachi Uchiha;
  3. Sakura Haruno;
  4. Shisui Uchiha;
  5. Kakashi Hatake;
  6. Naruto Uzumaki;
  7. Sakumo Hatake;
  8. Sasuke Uchiha;
  9. Madara Uchiha;

The remaining positions up to the ninety-ninth are available in the following tweet. As you can see, the protagonist ended up just outside the top 5, while at the top were two characters who had been fighting for the throne since day one: the 4. Hokage and the infamous Itachi. Surprisingly, however, Sakura's third place, capturing bronze after excelling in the battles instead. However, in the top 99 we see the presence of important characters of the caliber of Asuma, Nagato, Kisame, Killer Bee and many others. Do you agree with these positions?

The winner Minato Namikaze will be the protagonist of a self-contained chapter which will be released in the coming months and designed by Masashi Kishimoto himself. Instead, all frontrunners were placed in the middle of an image. At the same time, Naruto's best fight was also chosen, despite some allegations of tampering from fans.
