Top 10 Strongest Akatsuki Members – Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 10 Strongest Akatsuki Members. They’re a collection of S-rank criminals from across the ninja nations who aim to collect tailed beasts in order to gain power so that they can achieve world domination. So let us count down the list from weakest to strongest.
Hidan wasn’t all that powerful either. He was quite good at taijutsu (Kenjutsu) capable of matching the likes of kakashi hatake and asuma sarutobi in a hand to hand duel. He possessed a very lethal ability which only required a drop of blood from his opponent. With it he could defeat anybody. Also, his ritual is time taking and anyone who knows about it could rush him to prevent him from executing his ritual.
Deidara is a powerful shinobi who possesses very lethal ability “Explosion Release” which he executes using a clay. He proved this by being able to defeat gaara who at the time is the kazekage and later against sasuke, pushing the latter to the extremes. Even though he is ranked this low, he can definitely go toe to toe with the strongest member of the akatsuki so there isn’t much difference in skill between him and the rest of the members of this list.
Sasori is the best puppet user of all time. His use of his puppets was greatly feared throughout the third shinobi world war as he turned the sand red with blood, giving him the nickname “Sasori of the Red Sand”. He was powerful enough to defeat and kill the third kazekage. It took the combined efforts of lady chiyo and sakura to defeat him and we know that towards his defeat he stopped fighting seriously.
Konan is one of the founding members of the original akatsuki alongside nagato. She possesses the nature transformations of wind, water, earth and yang release. She uses paper ninjutsu which allows her to transform herself into paper. She can harden these papers to be as hard as steel, creating arrows, spears, shuriken and paper bombs to attack. With preparation she was nearly able to kill obito uchiha who only survived using the izanagi.
Kakuzu is without a doubt one of the strongest akatsuki members with a lot of experience as well. He has five hearts, all of which need to be destroyed for him to die, and if he loses a few, he can replace them by killing enough people and taking their hearts. Since he has the hearts of people with different affinities, he can use each of the five main elemental releases as if he had an affinity for each one. He took on an entire team of yamato, kakashi, naruto and a few other.
5. Kisame Hoshigaki
Kisame was feared as “The Monster of the Hidden Mist”. He was partnered with itachi uchiha when he joined the akatsuki. Kisame could battle an entire team single-handedly, as seen when he fought the entire team guy on his own. He defeated and captured the four tails jinchuriki roshi on his own and forced might guy to the seventh gate without samehada. Also, he was able to defeat killer bee in the version two state of jinchuriki.
Orochimaru is one of the member of Legendary Sannin. He mastered many jutsu including the reanimation jutsu (edo tensei) and has powerful snake summons at his disposal. He was able to kill the fourth kazekage and the third hokage (though he admitted he would have died if hiruzen was ten years younger, and when hiruzen first caught him doing experiments, was able to defeat him but unable to kill his former star student) and he likely would have been the fourth hokage if he wasn’t a psycopath.
3. Itachi Uchiha
Itachi was a prodigy of konohagakure’s uchiha clan and also served as an anbu captain but later became an akatsuki member after taking out his clan. As an uchiha he possesses the mangekyo sharingan which gives him access to the susanoo and other abilities such as the amaterasu, tsukuyomi, “Yata Mirror and Totsuka Blade”. He ‘s quite smart and could defeat even those stronger than he is.
Pain is the leader of the akatsuki. He is the one who killed jiraiya, hanzo and single-handedly destroyed konoha. He is the Wielder of the legendary eyes rinnegan allowing him to do planetary devastation and almighty push. He is the first god mode type character of the series. Pain can summon all the pain paths to fight with him and to put into perspective how powerful the paths of pain are individually, kakashi was killed fighting 2 paths of pain but most other ninja in konoha were defeated fighting just one.
1. Obito Uchiha
Obito is the true leader of new akatsuki. He was powerful enough to force 4th Hokage to his limits when he was just a teen. In years he showed far more achievements. He hold himself against a very powerful group which has chars like KCM2 Naruto, MS Kakashi, Gai, Killer Bee. His speed, reaction speed, refexes, regeneration powers, raw strength and durability makes him a physical beast. With Kamui, Rinnegan and ten-tails jinchuriki form he is definitely the strongest member of the akatsuki.
