There are several characters in Naruto who could never show off their full power. There are numerous reasons for them not being able to do so. Some of them just died too early, others didn’t get any screen time at all. So, today I have made a list of characters who never showed their full power.
We begin the list with Orochimaru. He is also the arguably the strongest member of the legendary Sannin. Orochimaru was also in contention to be named the 4th Hokage. He was never shown using 100% of his powers. The biggest reason was that his hands were sealed away for a very long time. Also, he was never able to enter the perfect vessel that would’ve let him be at 100%.
07. Tobirama Senju
He was the second Hokage of the Hidden Leaf. Tobirama was just used in order to hype things for Hashirama Senju. Nobody really cares about Tobirama. Anyway Tobirama was arguably the smartest Hokage in the history. His ability to invent jutsu and also fight opponents with extra abilities prove that he is really smart.
06. Sakumo Hatake
Sakumo was also known as the “White Fang of the Leaf”. He possessed amazing powers according to rumours. He was also considered to be on the same level as the Legendary Sannin. It is really shameful that we could never see him in fighting or using his full power.
05. Nagato Uzumaki
Nagato was an orphan from Amegakure. He was given the Rinnegan by Madara Uchiha. Nagato was trained by Jiraiya, who helped him to hone his powers further. However while fighting Hanzō, he lost his legs in an explosion. He could never recover from it. Thus, he was immobilised and could never use his true power.
Hanzō was also known as “Hanzō of the Salamander”. He was also the leader of Amegakure. Hanzō was one of the most respected shinobi in the history. He was so powerful that he could even defeat the legendary Saanin. But due to very limited screen time, he never showed his true powers.
03. Shisui Uchiha
Next on the list is Shisui Uchiha. Shisui was hailed as the strongest Uchiha of his generation. He possessed the second most powerful genjutsu in the series. Shisui’s eye was taken by Danzo, who was scared that Shisui might put the elders of the Leaf under genjutsu.
02. Hiruzen Sarutobi
Hiruzen was the third Hokage of the Hidden Leaf. He was also known as the “God of Shinobi”. Hiruzen was only shown battling at old age. Despite being old, he was able to thwart Orochimaru’s plan of destroying the Hidden Leaf. We can only imagine his power at his prime.
01. Minato Namikaze
So, the final character on the list is Minato Namikaze. He was the fourth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf. Minato died very early at the age of just 24. Minato was considered to be stronger than all the previous Hokage. But, Minato was never able to use his full power.
Minato made the Flying Thunder God better and his speed was unparalleled. He was the fastest shinobi in the history. Minato was also known as the “Yellow Flash of the Leaf”. His power despite being only 24 was much more than any other previous shinobi.
That’s it from me. I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave your suggestions below.
