The Legendary Sannin was a trio of Shinobi who were extremely powerful. They were the strongest Shinobi of their generation, christened by another legend, Hanzo. The Sannin were undoubtedly very powerful, but there are a few characters who came after them, and still managed to surpass them as well. Today, I’ve made a list of all the characters who surpassed the Legendary Sannin in Naruto.
Note: Only those characters who came AFTER the Sannin are included. No Otsutsuki is included since they’re all too powerful.
08. Sakura Haruno
Sakura Haruno was Tsunade’s student, and apprentice. She was trained in the ways of Medical Ninjutsu. Sakura Haruno is probably the only Kunoichi who was able to achieve what Tsunade did. She did it at a very young age as well. Many fans hate her, but that doesn’t take away her credentials from her. Sakura is definitely one of the strongest, and she did manage to surpass Tsunade Senju.
07. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto Yakushi was Orochimaru’s right hand man. After Orochimaru’s death, he stole various powers from many Shinobi and combined them in one body. He also managed to awaken Sage Mode, and this enhanced his capabilities further. Kabuto even perfected the Edo Tensei, and he definitely surpassed Orochimaru.
06. Minato Namikaze
Minato Namikaze was the 4th Hokage of Konohagakure. He was a student of Jiraiya. Further, he was described as a private once in a generation prodigy by many. Minato was exceptionally talented, he even mastered the Sage Art, and became a Perfect Jinchuuriki of Yin Kurama. He surely surpassed Jiraiya as a Shinobi.
05. Nagato Uzumaki
Nagato Uzumaki was an orphan from Amegakure. He wielded Madara’s Rinnegan for quite some time, and he was exceptionally good at using it. Nagato, when fully fit, is definitely one of the strongest Shinobi ever. He was the one who killed Jiraiya, and he wasn’t even using his full powers. Nagato nearly killed two Perfect Jinchuuriki when he was reanimated as well. He was on a whole different level.
04. Might Guy
Might Guy is a Taijutsu expert from Konohagakure. He is one of the strongest Shinobi to ever exist. When using the 8th Gate, Guy was also able to overwhelm Rikudo Madara. There’s no way anyone from the Sannin could keep up with him.
03. Obito Uchiha
Obito Uchiha was a member of Team Minato. He was also a student of Minato Namikaze, and Madara Uchiha. Obito possessed Hashirama’s cells, and even wielded Madara’s Rinnegan. His Mangekyo Sharingan was also extremely OP as well. If that’s not enough, he was also the 10 Tails Jinchuuriki, and that effectively puts him out of the reach of the Legendary Sannin. Even if they combine their strength, Obito will come out unscathed.
02. Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke Uchiha is one of the most powerful characters in Naruto universe. He possesses a Rinnegan, and half of Hagoromo’s powers as well. He was once also a student of Orochimaru. Sasuke is also a Shinobi capable of fighting against the likes of Madara Uchiha, Kinshiki Otsutsuki, and Momoshiki Otsutsuki. He surpassed the Legendary Sannin status a long time ago.
01. Naruto Uzumaki
Naruto Uzumaki is the strongest character alive in the Naruto World right now, and the only person who can match him in battle is Sasuke. He is the Perfect Jinchuuriki of Kurama, and also has the chakra of all other Tailed Beasts as well.Further, he also has Hagoromo’s Six Paths Yang Powers, which has made him a God level Shinobi.
Naruto was also once trained by Jiraiya as well. There’s no doubt that he played a very important role in Naruto’s development, but Naruto is leagues above him. Not only him, Naruto is the stronger than all the Sannin.
