    just for fun, I decided to make a list of who in the series can be considered kage level. as we all know, there is no real kage level, but kage level is just what we call nins who are not really kages, but are so much stronger than a jounin that the rank simply did not fit them anymore(in YYH terms, they would be the S-classes).


    now, might as well get started(yes, some kage levels actually are kages, but not all kages are kage level, so don't throw that in my face):


    1st and 2nd hokage: said to be the best of their time, and showed quite a bit of impressive skill.


    3rd hokage: god of shinobi. in his prime it has been implied that he was far stronger than even the sannin.

    4th hokage: lots of rep, but few showings. made some S-class jutsu, basically won the great war for konoha. also, orochimaru hated him, yet never made a move against him. this should speak volumes.


    5th hokage: makes kage level, but not for combat. while her actual fighting abilities would most likely not match up to most other kage levels, her other abilities bring her up to kage level quite easily.


    Jariya: a sannin, already shown many powerful abilites, and above all that oro seems to take a fight with him quite seriously.


    orochimaru: actually killed 2 kages, said to be able to destroy a country by himself. he has had one of the most impressive showings out of any nins in the series.


    Sasori: killed the strongest kage in the history of the sand, destroyed a country by himslelf, and is almost immortal.


    Garaa: after the time-skipl he has shown more raw power than just about anybody, and at a very young age.\


    deidara: defeated garaa, can destroy an entire hidden village in one shot.


    Itachi: said by oro himself to be stronger than him(twice), defeated one of konoha's best nins easily.


    Kisame: has shown ability to match 2nd hokage, has the more than 2x the amount of chakra as kyubi naruto.


    Chiyo: not as strong as sasori, but even at her advanced age she still retained enough power to keep up with him.





    well, thats all I can think of for now, if you can think of anyone that should be added or struck from the list, please tell me who, and more importantly, WHY.

    lol 2x the amount of chakra kyuubi has? hahah... if you knew anything about the bijuu legends you would know that Kyuubi has an infinite amount of chakra.

    the only ones ill acknowledge to be truly strong and deserve Kage level status is Jiraiya and Orochimaru (meaning, of those that are still alive). my opinion.

    Yeah but it's just something to call "That level that we know exists above Kakashi, that Jiraiya and Orochimaru are on".

    I'd say Akatsuki were on that level in general but so far Hidan hasn't impressed me, I wouldn't call him a "Kage level" nin at all, i'll wait for him to actually use some jutsu first to be honest.

    He didn't say kyuubi, but kyuubi naruto. He was referring to Neji's comment about 30% Kisame having as much chakra as Naruto had when he fought him in the chuunin exam.

    I think he wrote Kyuubi Naruto.
    You know.. Kyuubi Naruto doesn't equal to Kyuubi..

    I don't think Sasuke and Naruto are kage lvl in any of their forms.. I maybe wrong though..

    You need to add Kimimaro (healthy version) to the list.

    he was at least high level jounin in strenght while he was on the verge of death.

    I think we have way to many kages listed...

    Hokage1-4
    Itachi
    Sasori
    Jiraiya
    Oro

    There that's the list. Kakashi, Tsunade, Deidara, Kisame are close but I can't justify putting them with all the others.

    Elite Jounin classifies a very specific level made up of characters who have frequently been compared to one another. Kage, however, is commonly used to describe ANYONE above Elite Jounin, and refers literally to anyone who has ever been a Kage or been offered the position, when it really has little to do with actual strength.

    Gaara has probably been Kazekage since the beginning of the timeskip, because we know exactly when the Sand lost their Fourth Kazekage, and we also know how quickly the Leaf tried to replace the Hokage they lost at the same time. So, Kage level would include preskip Gaara... and therefore anyone who's beaten him. Like preskip Naruto.

    There's no such thing as Kage level. It's too fucking vague.

    Kage level does not refer to someone who has been offered the Kage position. If it did, then yes, it would be a very loose term, but Kage level means the strength of the average Kage and nothing else. And an average Kage is stronger than an elite jounin, based on everything we've seen.

    Preskip Naruto has never beaten post-Kimi Gaara, though he managed to tie a chuunin exam Gaara once. There is no rule stating that every Kage is automatically Kage level, if you think preskip Naruto would have been able to defeat Gaara at the time of his becoming Kazekage, then you can say that Gaara was not Kage level by then. Of course, that idea rests on a few loose assumptions anyway.

    If you actually believe that, there is no hope for you in society. None at all. The Sound 4 together could kill a healthy Kimimaro. :oh

    :huh -Post Timeskip Kakashi (low kage level)

    :huh --Post Timeskip Sasuke curse seal 2 (low kage level at last.....in base form he was strong enough to give Kakashi a good battle....in my opinion with cs2 he is stronger than Kakashi)

    :huh -4 tails Naruto (middle to high kage level in terms of raw power)
    -
    first of all i thought that to be on the level with a kage one had to have developed and refined his powers. So raw power does not count unless you know how to use it.

    second i'm not convinced that kakashi deserves to be on the level of the kage although he may have the techniques required, he proved against deidra that he has not mastered them.

    how can one say sasuke is strong enough to take kakashi we've only seen him in a few shots post timeskip.

    It's gotten quite out of hand. I'm sad as well that Kishimoto didn't give us a more firm power ranking system.

    Designating something as Kage Level just doesn't help. He gives all the cool people good enough reputations. That should be enough.

    He left, wasnt kicked out :notrust

    And I like the original list, but I would add Post Training Naruto at a low Kage level. Or at least S-Class. But that is only if his training really makes him that strong. I wouldnt add Gated Gai though, I mean he barely beat a 30% chakra level dummy.

    "Barely"? Gated Gai beat 30% Kisame with perhaps the most overkill in the entire series.

    I agree, Gai with 6 gates beating on Kisame is probably the only time in the whole manga where there was no contest as to who would win. 100% chakra Kisame will be able to do more, but having a CRAP-load of chakra doesn't mean you're very strong, as shown with Naruto and his inability to use his chakra very well.
