In the Naruto anime, all Hokage will be one of the Kage leaders from Konoha village, village Hidden in the Leaf. Through time the village has been home to seven Hokages, and you will get to know the story and abilities of each one of them right now. Each selected Hokage is considered the village’s most powerful Shinobi (ninja). However, who was the strongest?
1st Hokage Hashirama Senju
With his older twin brother Tobirama, Hashirama was responsible for securing peace between Hashirama and ensuring peace with the Uchiha clan.
This was the family which gave birth to Konoha. He was the first Hokage to be elected and set out to realize his vision of a peaceful future in which children wouldn’t have to suffer in conflict. I
n terms of Strength, Hashirama earned the title of “God Shinobi” for his unmatched capabilities.
As kids, Hashirama and Tobirama lost their brothers and sisters, who were killed during the wars that characterized that Period of State Wars. In the years since the two thought of establishing a new shinobi method to bring peace.
After learning that Hashirama was a close friend of Madara Uchiha, however, Senju and the Uchiha clans recommenced a conflict. After years of fights, Hashirama had the opportunity to kill Madara. However, he chose to go the other direction.
He chose to commit suicide to show his love to be at peace and stop further deaths during the battle. Then, it was time for the clans to reach an agreement.
As a team, Senju, as well as Uchihas, created Konoha. Hashirama was keen on Madara for the position of the first hostage. However, Tobirama demanded that the leader should be elected democratically. The inhabitants of Konoha chose Hashirama to take over the place.
It is believed that the Senju was manipulating to maintain his position of power and is controlled through Zetsu.
Madara abandoned Konoha and described it as a failed experiment. And promised to fight Hashirama for the last time. Even though he possessed the Nine-Tails. Madara lost and was killed by Hashirama following a series of confrontations.
After a time of peace, new conflicts started to appear. Hashirama attempted to share the beasts tailed with other villages to balance the power among them.
Ensure the trust of their neighbors. The problem was that Tobirama thought the villages must bear the cost of the beasts. When distrust increased, the conflict escalated. Hashirama dies in one battle just after transferring Hokage’s title to Tobirama.
1st Hokage Powers
As an Asura reincarnation, Otsutsuki Hashirama was a powerful chakra with incredible power. His control over this chakra was an additional feature, allowing him to use powerful techniques with virtually no hand seals.
The only person was the original practitioner of Wood Release and holder of his own Sage Mode (Sennin). The man was able to take on Madara using the Uchiha by relying upon the Nine-Tails and an eternal Mangekyo Sharingan.
Hashirama could defy the forces of the powerful Impure World Reincarnation method. In addition, he developed abilities to regenerate, similar to the techniques of Tsunade. The regenerative power Naruto was able to achieve by tapping into the Nine-Tails chakra.
Alongside mastering the five fundamental changes of nature and understanding Yin and Yang. The first Hokage could perform various Ninjutsu.
His ability to master medical Ninjutsu was unheard of. In comparison, there are many different techniques we could discuss here. But suffice to declare that he was the only one who could capture the nine Bijuus in a single instance.
2nd HokageTobirama Senju
Alongside his brother and the First Hokage, Hashirama Senju Tobirama is one of the founding members of Konoha village. The very first Shinobi village with people of the Uchiha clan.
Initiatives to maintain and achieve peace and stability in the village’s working system were the norm in Tobirama’s lifetime. It’s no wonder that after Hashirama’s demise, He took over the village’s leadership as the Second Hokage.
As Hokage, Tobirama was the one who created his own Academy, Anbu, and the Chunin Exams. In pursuit of peace, he was the one who inspired Konoha’s citizens. Konoha cares about the health of the entire village rather than only their clan.
Hashirama, as well as Tobirama, comprised two of Butsuma’s four children. When they were children, they lost their twin brothers Kawarama and Itama, during one of the wars of the State Wars Period.
In the hope of one day establishing an organization that could keep children safe from the death of their parents during conflicts. Hashirama and Tobirama eventually negotiated peace with the clan of the enemy, the Uchihas.
Even though Hashirama loved his new acquaintance, Madara Uchiha. Tobirama was able to keep a lower public profile. To this end, Tobirama opposed the post of First Hokage to Madara.
Favoring the organization of the open elections to all, during which Hashirama was selected for the position. While his brother was in office, Tobirama continued to act as an advocate for his brother.
During the peace established during this time, Tobirama began training three new ninjas.
One was Hiruzen Sarutobi, who would later become the third Hokage in the future. However, at some point, Madara could challenge Hashirama’s authority, opposing his policies which led to new conflict. Madara defeated Hashirama but he was killed in a different battle.
Tobirama is ultimately killed during his final First Shinobi World War battle. He does his bit to ensure that his fellow soldiers can be saved. When he dies, he hands Hokage’s title to Hiruzen.
2nd Hokage Powers
Tobirama was recognized in the ranks of the strongest Shinobi to be a part of history. His immense chakra reserves gave the Shinobi incredible stamina, speed, and power.
He was able to detect with just a few touches on the ground. The man could feel the presence of distant people and recognize their chakra’s sign.
His abilities were sufficient to win a battle with his foes, the Gold and the Silver Brothers, who held the Nine-Tails’ chakra at that time.
Apart from having impressive abilities in Taijutsu, he was highly adept with Ninjutsu. His skills in Space-Time Ninjutsu are remarkable. Along with the methods he invented himself. Like Shadow Clone and Impure World Reincarnation.
3rd Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi
Hiruzen Sarutobi became the 2nd ninja, earning the honorary title “God Shinobi”.
The first Hokage and Konoha founder Hashirama Senju was first. In his time as the leader in the village of Konoha village. Hiruzen was the most powerful Hokage in the village’s history.
He was the instructor responsible for the three Tannins. A trio of Ninjas considered being the most powerful of their times, Jiraya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade.
However, his legacy went beyond his three students, impacting generations of students. Following his death, Tsunade takes over as Hokage and studies the number of good ninjas who developed under Hiruzen’s guidance.
Hiruzen was one of the first generations of ninjas to be born in Konoha. His clan was one of the first in the village that was just established.
As one of Tobirama Senju’s three pupils, Hiruzen wowed with his abilities. He later received further education in the company of Hashirama Senju, the very first Hokage. Unfortunately, Hiruzen’s friend from childhood Danzo Shimura has an intense rivalry with him.
In the First Shinobi World War, Hiruzen offered to be a bit to ensure the others in his group could escape. But Tobirama refused to allow it
. Since he was the 2nd Hokage. Tobirama was left to serve as bait, and, before his final rest, he was appointed Hiruzen as the Third Hokage.
In the Academy, He was the instructor of Jiraiya and Orochimaru as well as Tsunade.
He was extremely fond of Orochimaru and even wished Shinobi could take over as Hokage one day. But, Orochimaru was not opposed to the notion of treating all people in Konoha like a member of his family and taking risks to protect residents.
While Hiruzen led Konoha’s troops during his time in the Second and the Third Shinobi World Wars. The numerous deaths the village suffered caused fury in Danzo. Ultimately, he decided to retire as Hokage Hiruzen picked Minato Namikaze to assume the position.
The baby’s birth was a safety issue, and this is something that Hiruzen assisted with. Kushina is the wife of the newly born Hokage Jinchuriki of Nine-Tails. Her labor also weakened the seal around the Bijuu. Unfortunately, the Beast was released with Tobi’s assistance.
Minato and Kushina both died to save the village and to seal the bijou of the new Naruto.
To keep his pledge to protect his baby Hiruzen returned to the Hokage’s position. Hokage gives the child his mother’s name so his father’s enemies cannot recognize him.
3rd Hokage Powers
The incredible level of chakra and the control of this chakra’s speed and strength were the hallmarks of Hiruzen. Ninjutsu was one of his specialties.
He earned his name as “The Professor” since he could master all types of combat in the shinobi arts with aplomb. Most likely the only Shinobi with this feat. The Hokage was able to master every ninja skill and develop many others.
Also, use the five fundamental nature transformations and those of the Yin and Yang release. Hiruzen was the only one to be able to remove powerful seals like The Five Element Seal.
4th Hokage Minato Namikaze
Minato Was one of the Hokage who passed away young. To defend Konoha from Nine-Tails Fox’s assault. The 4th Hokage took on the role of a sacrifice and sealed Tailed Beast into his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki.
Yet, Minato is remembered as an excellent leader. His talents earned an honorary title: Yellow Flash of Konoha.
Minato’s abilities in his earliest years were amazing. When he was at the Academy, His master Jiraya had even considered that Minato could have been one of the Children of Prophecy.
As per the prophecy, two kids were the immortal incarnations of Indra. Well, Asura Otsutsuki was the only one who could finish Kaguya Otsutsuki’s sealing to help save humanity.
The fate of the prophecy is passed up to Minato’s next family generation. The son of Minato, Naruto Uzumaki, was the Reincarnation of Asura. He, along with Sasuke Uchih.
The reincarnation of Indra defeated Kaguya in the Fourth Shinobi World War. He was helping save the world and fulfilling the prophecy.
As an adult, Minato was tasked with guiding his group of young ninjas. It consisted of Obito Uchiha Rin Nohara and Kakashi Hatake.
However, following his fantastic collaboration during the Third Shinobi World War. Minato was chosen to hold the role of Fourth Hokage.
As a Jinchuuriki bearer of a hairy beast, Minato’s wife Kushina required special attention for the birth of their baby boy, Naruto. Since birth weakened the seal that kept this Beast at bay.
The couple prepared properly to protect everyone. When Naruto was born, Minato was already starting the necessary steps to reinforce the seal when the disguised Tobi was brought in.
After killing all security officers, Tobi threatened the baby’s life and was able to get the Beast’s tail away from Kushina. Minato was next to stop the Nine-Tails assault on Konoha.
To save the entire world, the two Kushina die to encapsulate the Tailed Beast from Naruto. The action helped save Konoha’s residents’ lives from Naruto. And Naruto from the Tailed Beast, whose power could be required for a possible future battle with Tobi.

His excellent skills earned him more attention after participating in the Third Shinobi World War. He could take on an army of over 1,000 Iwagakure Ninjas in the war.
In addition, it was the only one capable of stopping Tobi and The Tailed Beast during their attack on Konoha. So, it’s no wonder he was considered among the most powerful Shinobi. Not just of that period but in the history of ninja shinobi.

Another method he was renowned for was the Rasengan feature created by him, which developed the chakra ball, which can cause explosions.
5th Hokage Tsunade Senju
The most obvious sign of the Strength of Tsunade is her status as part of the Legendary Tannins. They are regarded as the most potent ninjas of their time among this exclusive group: Tsunade Orochimaru, Jiraiya, and Tsunade.
Under the direction of Hiruzen Sarutobi, who was the Third Hokage. They achieved a level of power that saw all of them given the title of Hokage.
Orochimaru was later discarded. Because Hiruzen thought he didn’t understand what was meant by being a Konoha ninja. Jiraya was not interested in the post that Konoha Council offered.
Konoha Council nominated Tsunade to fill the seat. Even though she needed to convince herself to accept the position. Tsunade was an excellent Hokage.
Tsunade is a granddaughter of the First Hokage, Hashirama, and the holder of many extraordinary abilities. She also stood out in revolutionizing the ninja’s medical system, apart from being a highly skilled medical ninja.
Tsunade was also a Sakura Haruno and Shizune teacher in medical Ninjutsu.

Since the beginning, Tsunade has advocated using ninja-style medicine methods in squads. The young Dan Kato agreed with her. T
he new relationship was a sign that they began to form a bond, and Dan spoke to him about his ambition to be a Hokage. Repeating the gesture, Tsunade gave him Hashirama’s necklace.
Although her medical work earned her recognition during the war’s victory. Dan died, and Hashirama’s necklace was returned to her.
After the experiences, Tsunade stopped believing in the possibility of seeing dreams come true. She began to view the role of Hokage as a sham.
The situation is changed when she meets younger Naruto Uzumaki. Naruto’s determination results in Tsunade ultimately accepting the role of Fifth Hokage.

7th Hokage Naruto Uzumaki
Konoha’s current Hokage and the main character of both the anime and manga wins this rank. After a lot of dedication to the training process in both Konoha.
Naruto realized his goal of becoming the Seventh Hokage. Yet, the victory and his leading method honored the Hokage before him, with Naruto safeguarding Konoha from being a victim of the “Will of Fire” principle.
This is the principle that Asura Otsutsuki believed love was the most critical factor in peace.
That’s the power of Naruto. In contrast, the Hokage before him may have had slightly more powerful Ninjutsu—maybe higher chakra levels. The principles of Naruto could alter how animals with tails and their masters.
His perseverance and friendship helped save the great ninjas from the dark side like Sasuke or Gaara. That type of power pushed Naruto to the status of Hokage and eventually to the top of the ranking.
Naruto is the child of Kushina Uzumaki and Minato Namikaze, who is the Fourth Hokage. His birth was a mystery. Because Kushina was the Jinchuriki of Nine-Tails, the birth could cause a weakening of the seal that holds Bijuu.
Minato planned the birth in a remote area of Konoha along with some security guards. When Naruto was born, Minato had already begun to make the Nine-Tails seal stronger once more but was interrupted by Tobi.
Profiting from the situation, Tobi freed the Tailed Beast. It resulted in a huge strike on Konoha. In a desperate attempt to protect the entire village.
Minato put the Nine-Tails in Naruto’s newborn. Naruto, but Kushina and he both perished. Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage, offered Naruto Kushina’s name as the only son to fulfill his pledge to safeguard Naruto.
However, Naruto grew up in a world of prejudiced people who only saw him be the bearer of the Beast who almost killed Konoha. Because of this, Naruto began to dream of one day becoming a Hokage to guard the village and gain the respect of everyone.
While undergoing his studies and training to become a Ninja. Naruto joined Team 7, alongside Sakura Haruno and Sasuke Uchiha.
Alongside Kakashi Hatake serving as his instructor. Naruto struggled more than others of his classmates initially and could not pass the Academy 3 times. But his determination was rewarded by the development of unique skills.
Most of his ninja journey was devoted to protecting Konoha. He was attempting to save Sasuke from the route his friend took in the pursuit of revenge for the murder by the Uchihas.
In the Fourth Shinobi World War, Naruto’s involvement was crucial to Konoha’s victory. His position about handling Kurama’s The Nine-Tails is essential in changing the dynamic of relationships between the Jinchuuriki and Bijuu.
7th Hokage Powers
The fact lies in that this Seventh Hokage has reached incredible levels of power, particularly if we consider Hashiromo’s chakra. The chakra he received from Kurama and the Nine-Tails Beasth he was the bearer of.
Additionally, being a reincarnation of Asura Otsutsuki. Naruto was already blessed with incredible chakra reserves. He also was in complete control.
The key to Konoha’s victory during his victory during the Fourth Shinobi World War. Naruto defeated several Jnchuriki, as well as various Reincarnated warriors.
As an incarnation of Asura and Indra Otsutsuki, respectively. Naruto and Sasuke were the Children of Prophecy. As they confirmed the prophecy and united their power. They could complete Kaguya Otsutsuki’s sealing and bring the world back to life.
Naruto’s vitality gives him the ability to heal, stamina, and superhuman endurance.
However, Naruto could only use Nine-Tails Kurama’s power whenever he felt angry when he was younger. Naruto altered his relationship with Bijuu. He fused the Bijuu’s Yang part with Bijuu’s Yin half, achieving an incredible chakra level.
Alongside the ninjutsu skills that Jiraya taught him. Naruto is also a master of Shadow Clones as one of his most effective techniques. This is something that he can master on a massive scale. The Rasengan chakra energy balls are another known source of The Seventh Hokage.
