Naruto is a beloved shonen anime that stood the test of time. It still remains a fan-favorite and there are a lot of interesting characters worth looking into. If you're a fan of Naruto's powerful villains or simply want to know who stands out, you came to the right place. Naruto Uzumaki is no stranger to villains of different origins. Even friends who become enemies. Like many other heroes, Naruto has faced a lot of challenges and enemies. Some of these include Orochimaru's invasion in Konoha, the abduction of his friend Sasuke, and even facing against the mother of Chakra. Find out who are the best antagonists in the Naruto series, and see for yourself if your pick has made the cut.
Anyone who's a big fan of Naruto knows that Madara Uchiha was a legend. Whether you love him or hate his guts, you can't deny that he was one of the strongest villains in Naruto history. He is an antagonist with no clear weaknesses and he can even beat an army without exerting all his strengths. He comes out of a battlefield with strong characters like fighting them isn't all that exhausting.
Pain has the ability to control corpses and let them use different powers. With his powers, he causes total destruction to his targets. Nagato is known to be the person who created the legend of Pain and thus he is the primary person to be credited. Although the Six Paths in which Pain controls to destroy strong characters are also worth noting.
If we had to name one genius in Naruto, it is without a doubt Orochimaru. His brilliance in experimenting with his techniques led him to have a strength that can take on powerful Naruto characters. He is willing to learn everything there is to know about Jutsu and master it to the best of his abilities. Orochimaru is also pretty much immortal since he can transfer his consciousness to another body.
Itachi Uchiha is a villain whose redemption should never be forgotten. Being associated with the antagonists, it's hard to trust Itachi. Especially after he literally killed his entire clan while only sparing his brother Sasuke. It is only later revealed what his true motives were when he committed mass murder.
When Kaguya Otsutsuki first appeared in Naruto Shippuden, she shifted everyone's beliefs about the Naruto universe with her origins. She is no ordinary human with extraordinary powers. Kaguya is actually an Otsutsuki or an extraterrestrial. What makes her a powerful villain is her array of strengths that can take down even the strongest Naruto characters. She can manifest unstoppable chakra arms, and absorb all ninjutsu, among many others.
You might not have noticed Obito Uchiha at the start of the series, but after being mentored by Madara himself, he became a force to be reckoned with. He has become a dangerous antagonist who has an overpowered Jutsu which gives him a great edge. His Kamui allows him to block off any attacks that come his way. If you're ever the receiving end of his Jutsu, it's a guaranteed knockout too.
Danzo was only ever defeated because Sasuke was the perfect match for him. Despite that, Danzo is a dangerous antagonist who gathered intel behind the scenes in order to gain strong items and powers. Through his cunning ways, he was able to obtain Sharingan like they were part of a treasure hunt. With these Sharingan, he was able to manipulate other people's thoughts as well as heal without hand signs.
Zabuza Momochi was the first villain who battled with Team 7 and his strengths are no joke. He wielded an executioner's blade known as Kubikiribocho that was just as tall as him without a hitch. Aside from his amazing physical strength, he mastered the art of Silent Killing and further enhanced his powers.
