"Naruto Characters Are The Weakest" @ShortPauseAnime Responds

The other day, M WILD (@TroyAndretti) said that "Naruto characters would lose against every major anime..."

It was an interesting Tweet, so I decided to feature it here. Although we're talking about fictional characters, it's always fun to imagine what would happen if our favorite heroes and villains met...and fought.

I've seen every episode of Naruto/Naruto Shippuden, Hunter X Hunter, and Fairy Tail to date. I'm current on the Naruto, One Piece, and Fairy Tail manga. I've seen Dragon Ball Z to its conclusion and even watched a bit of GT. Bleach, I followed until the defeat of Aizen, and Yu Yu Hakusho I've only seen about 40 episodes; I lost interest with them.

There are some strong characters in each one of these anime, but there are some weak ones too. Are we just talking about the best of the best, or are we considering the chumps as well?

Mr. Satan? Tien? Yamcha? 

I think we can find some easy wins for the Naruto cast.

Imagine Kidomaru vs Usopp.

Usopp of One Piece

Usopp of One Piece

Both are shooters, but there is no way Usopp can outshoot Kidomaru or survive this meeting. Kidomaru's got too many abilities, along with Orochimaru's curse to contend with. Once he gets Usopp in one of his webs, it's game over — not to mention his hardened arrows. Usopp would probably run away with his eyes bulging if he saw this guy, and Kidomaru isn't even one of the strongest in Naruto

If we are only talking about the champions from each anime universe — meaning the best of the best — the Naruto characters can still hold their own. If you haven't kept up to date with the Naruto manga, characters are able to defeat entire armies,  subjugate planets, revive the dead,  and create new dimensions. If that isn't "God Level" stuff, I don't know what is.



Here is a video highlighting some of the strongest Naruto characters, although I disagree with the order.

  • Ace's Fire Fire Fruit (Mera Mera no Mi) vs Sasuke's Amaterasu? Ace (One Piece) may have been fire, but he was regular fire. Amaterasu is hellfire, and it could smother regular fire. 
  • Kenpachi (Bleach) vs Madara (Naruto)? I've seen Kenpachi do some pretty wicked things, but I'd wager stepping to Madara is an "Oh no, Susanoo-no".
  • Isaac Netero (Hunter X Hunter) vs Hashirama Senju (Naruto)? I'm picking Hashirama, the First Hokage. If you need a reason, click the "Spoiler" below.
Spoiler: Netero self-destructed while fighting Meruem. Meruem was persistent, always looking for an opening. He didn't use any magical abilities or jutsu to fight Netero. Hashirama is the "God of Shinobi". He would have no problem defeating this hunter.

Kisame (Naruto) could defeat the majority of One Piece's Devil Fruit users by himself. Devil Fruit users become weak when submerged in water. Kisame can summon water and trap people in water bubbles. Even Luffy would have a difficult time with Kisame. They could be fighting in the middle of a dry wasteland, and Kisame would make a river appear.

The Dragon Ball Z characters are in a league of their own — with Goku having experience fighting Gods — but what about Kaguya or the Sage of the Six Paths?

Spoiler: Naruto, Sasuke, Obito, Madara, Hagoromo, and Kaguya have all entered God modes. Maybe they can't beat Goku, but they can fight anyone else in the Dragon Ball multiverse, except the handful of figthers even Goku can't face. (If you've seen the latest DBZ movie, you know what I'm talking about.)


And that's just skimming the surface. We can go on and on about other match ups. (Let's!) Do you think Naruto characters are the weakest in anime? It's time to vote.
