The Pain invasion is arguably one of the darkest days in the history of Konha. It led to the death of a large number of people including Kakashi Hatake. It was certainly a day to forget for the entire village of Konohagakure. But, Pain was defeated thanks to the efforts of Naruto. So, today I have made a list of strongest Konoha characters who were present during the Pain invasion.
06. Hinata Hyūga
We begin the list Hinata Hyūga. She is also known as the “Byakugan Princess”. Hinata tried to fight against Pain after confessing her love for Naruto. But, she was beaten rather badly by Pain. It was only after seeing her condition that Naruto went into rampage mode, which almost led to the opening of the entire 9 tails.
05. Sakura Haruno
Sakura had grown a lot more stronger than before. She was not the earlier Sakura who used to depend on other people. She became very powerful under the tutelage of Tsunade Senju. Sakura’s taijutsu and medical skills improved a lot which helped her to aid other people.
04. Danzo Shimura
It’s still unclear whether Danzo was present in the village during the Pain invasion or not. Personally, I think he was present in the village but because of his cowardly character he simply chose not to show himself. There’s no denying that Danzo would have proven a formidable foe for Pain.
03. Kakashi Hatake
Next on the list is Kakashi Hatake. He was the leader of Team 7 during that time. Kakashi had also used his Mangekyō Sharingan for the first time in the fight against Deidara. Kakashi’s Mangekyō Sharingan is pretty powerful.
Kakashi fought against Tendo Pain. Even though it was for some time only, Kakashi managed to buy some time. He was killed while trying to protect Choji from Pain’s attack. But, he was revived along with the rest of the villagers by Nagato Uzumaki.
02. Naruto Uzumaki
Naruto had only recently completed his training on Mount Myōboku. He trained with the toads and became the second person after Minato, to master the perfect sage mode. He returned to the village when Pain was running amok in the village.
Naruto used the power of his newly learnt toad sage mode and his new attack, Rasenshuriken to defeat all the six paths of Pain. However, he did go crazy after Hinata was mercilessly tossed by tendo Pain.
01. Tsunade Senju
So, the final character on the list is none other than the fifth Hokage, Tsunade Senju. Tsunade didn’t fight anyone during the invasion of Pain. However, she kept on healing all the injured people with her extraordinary chakra reserves.
Tsunade’s contribution was vital for the Hidden Leaf. People tend to ignore that but, she was very crucial for the well being of villagers. She kept on healing them until Pain was finally defeated by Naruto.
That’s it from me. I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave your suggestions below.
