    First of all, I didnt want to make this ranking. Because there are so many, and I dont see the sense of making rankings because they say NOTHING about a charakter, its like saying Barcelona is the best team in Europe because they won the CL. Then they get owned by Chelsea or nearly owned by Bremen and people start to discuss which is better. Of course other teams comes into the round like Bayern, Inter, AC, Manchester, Arsenal, Liverpool, Real, Valencia, Lyon and so on and in the end opinion is vs. opinion and everything is locked up.

    I will try to make a ranking based on performance, I wont use a single charakter not introduced yet or is unknown. Also, I will rank them after their present accordance, besides Sarutobi, I will rank him two times. One in his prime, and one when he died.

    And note: This should not be a clear division. It is more like a flowing ranking meaning one Tier 2 not obviously owns everyone from Tier 3, like u maybe realized already Naruto is a wonderful Shonen, where special abilities can compensate the lack of something else(See Shikamaru and his intelligence).

    So lets see what will happen:

    Unknown Members or charakters didnt fight after the skip or characters who fought too less I wont rank: Madara, Sakumo, AL, Zetsu, blue-haired dude, Tobi, Yugito, all Konoha Hokages we never really saw fighting(Shodaime, Nidaime, Yondaime), Chiyo

    Tier 1

    Sarutobi in his prime would be the strongest out of all, Sarutobi old would be the weakest of Tier 1.
    Orochimaru
    Jiraya
    Itachi

    Tier 2



    Nearly all Akatsuki members:
    Kisame, Deidara, Sasori, Kakuza
    Gai
    Kakashi
    Kabuto
    Tsunade(some will say "but she is kage etc"..I think in the present Naruto "kage" dont mean ANYTHING anymore. From her fighting abilities, she is a medical prodigy and has enormous strength but cant reach the level of Itachi, Oro or Jiraya).

    Tier 2.5


    Hidan( I think he is the weakest Akatsuki so far, he his likely between Tier 2 and 3...He has only one jutsu(seems to be his nr.1 Jutsu, if he shows at least some A-rank jutsus then he could go to Tier 2) he can rely on and it wont work with everyone. What if a genjutsu or ninjutsu specialist comes who dont need to fight with taijutsu? Hidan is a very special character who owns in a team but not really alone)

    Tier 3

    Gaara
    Sasuke
    Asuma
    Yamato
    Anko
    Kurenai
    Shizune
    Neji
    Ibiki


    Tier 3.5

    Aoba
    Genma
    Raidou


    Tier 4


    Naruto( now thats the clue, many will call me "stupid", "noob" will wish me every shit in the world. I want to explain why I think Naruto has the most potential in the series but actually is weaker than the others: Unlike Gaara he is not able to control his demon. Thats why I excluded him fighting above KN1, which at least allows him the red Rasengan,taijuu Kagebunshin and Kuchiyose. From his intelligence he is below Neji or the other Jounins. And I think right now Sasuke is MUCH stronger than Naruto: In the greatest fight between them, Naruto was only able to compete when he used his Kyuubi Chakra. Sasuke only in the end used his seal which made him stronger than Naruto. And if we compare them now, Sasuke showed up great skills(very fast, new chidori, able to supress Kyuubi) and was able to fight against Yamato, Naruto, Sai and Sasuka although Naruto was weakened and Yamato didnt fight serious. But Sasuke neither, so nobody knows how it would have ended. All in all, I would say Naruto will join very fast the next two tiers, but not now)

    Shikamaru(he is unbelievable intelligent, but he lacks very strong of chakra. He is maybe the opposite of Naruto, he is a genius without chakra. With more chakra I think Shikamaru could fight every Shinobi in the series equally. At least we have to watch how he will develop after Asumas death)

    Kimimaro(although I think if he would be alive, he would be in the second tier unless Oro didnt take his body)

    Lee( Im not sure about him, he didnt show many great things yet, his only attitude is to get faster and stronger in taijutsu, so im not sure where he will end with all the Akatsuki and special charakters(Sasuke, Naruto). But he has clearly potential to more)

    Shino ( he is very mysterious but before the skip he was quite strong and I think he got much stronger)

    Temari
    Kankouro


    Tier 5

    Sakura(the strongest of her tier, but still cannot compete with the others. Maybe in some years)
    Hinata
    Ino
    Chouji
    Kiba
    Tenten

    Now I think I finished, if I forgot someone please tell me I will edit it then.
    And like I said this ranking is FLOWING, this is not a clear division!

    I know that there are many people who will criticise me, but at least I gave some effort in this, so if you have critics then please write without flaming, spaming or insulting me or someone else.

    Hf and a nice day

    Can we just have one big thread for these tier things?

    When did you see Ibiki fight? And there are plenty there who are post skip who you haven't seen fight either.

    Hang on, Genma and Raidou were able to take on most of the CS2 Sound four. Sure they lost, but the S4 had to stop, rest and heal afterwards. The very fact that they are Jounin should put them higher.

    I also think, based on her post-timeskip excellence, Sakura should be at least one tier higher. Other than that you seem to have most of them where I think they should be.

    Personally I'd rank the immortal avatar of God quite a bit higher.

    But I do crazy things like that.

    Thanks to all who wrote useful comments.

    Of course I want to try to clear things up:

    First "The Pink Ninja" is right, we didnt see Ibiki fightning so it was my fault. Although then I would have to take Anko etc. also out, she didnt fight after the skip. And Ibiki was before the skip a special jounin so he cant be weaker since then. He is at least as strong Asuma, Anko or Kurenai. To Sakura: Sorry but in my eyes Sakura is weak. She has maybe superhuman strength, genjutsu AND medical jutsu, so she is a good allrounder, but she cant compete with Kimimaro, Naruto, Lee or Shika. She will definitely rise, but not now.

    to "Retlor": Mhh I think at least they could be Tier 3.5 because Sasuke, Asuma, Yamato are definitely stronger. Yeah 3.5 would be ok so far.

    Again Pink Ninja and turnip girl: Yeah somehow I dont think Hidan is that strong. His only weapon so far is getting a bit of blood and then piercing himself up. Without Kakuza he would have lost so far, so i dont think he can stand against an elite jounin or another akatsuki.

    Spy_Smasher and DrDragan90: From the second tail up Naruto was not able to control the Kyuubi anymore. Remember the fight with Deidara or with Orochimaru. And Gaara maybe was not able to fully control the Sanbi, but when he had his Sanbi he was stronger than Naruto. Naruto only was able to own Gaara after he fought against Sasuke. So Gaara had to fight 2 ones and still both were at the end. And alone the improvement of Gaara during the Rescue arc should be a sign of what he was capable of. I mean Gaara doesnt have someone like Yamato, Kakashi or Jiraya who teaches him jutsus or is able to supress his bijuu to train better.

    kuchiyoseNOjutsu:

    Hehe after I looked at it again maybe you are right. Im not sure about Aoba. I think he cannot handle Asuma or Yamato..Maybe he is also Tier 3.5

    I will edit it now like that: Genma, Raidou, Aoba, 3.5.

    All evidence points to Sasuke being stronger than Itatchi already, even If he doesn't already know it.

    I think in view of the part Sakura played in taking down Sasori, she should be placed in a higher catagory.

    Repeat after me kids: 'Chiyo could not have beaten Sasori without Sakura's help.'

    I'm also thinking that Temari and Kankuro should be placed higher in view of the fact that they were both very strong pre-timeskip, and have both advanced to Jounin. I would put them on par with Neji. Sure, Kankuro lost badly to Sasori, but is there a single battle more heavily biased against him? Sasori made his puppets, knew their strengths, weaknesses and how to destroy them and STILL he said it was the best fight he'd had in a while and Kankuro was able to block the final strike.

    You put Kiba too low I think. He should be quite a bit higher.

    Mhh but you should always consider : Can Kiba compete with the people in his tier? If I would rank him higher he would be together with Naruto, Kimimaro, Lee or Shika. He would be definetely in the wrong group. The same with Sakura. Somehow she is special, but I dont see her stronger than Hinata or Ino. Like I said she would be the first one who could catch up with the others but until no she NEVER was really able to succeed. Sure Chiyo needed Sakura but she mover her, not Sakura herself. At least I would rank Sakura 4.5, this would be a compromise for me. To Temari and Kankuro: Put them in tier 3? Together with Yamato, Sakura, Gaara or Neji? No sorry...They are strong, they are jounin but good enough with tier 4.
