The Fourth Great Ninja War broke out on the possession of the Nine, and the Eight Tails Jinchuuriki between Akatsuki and the Allied Shinobi Forces. Later in the war, the great Rabbit Goddess, Kaguya Ōtsutsuki was also revived and the war ended when she was sealed. Many great shinobi lost their lives in this war, and some retired afterwards. Today at TheAnimeScrolls, let us look at the top ten ninjas who retired after the Fourth Great Ninja War. Let’s begin—
10. Tsunade Senju
Tsunade was the Fifth Hokage of Konohagakure during, and until the end of the Fourth Great Ninja War. She fought bravely during the war. When Madara Uchiha almost killed the five kage, it was Tsunade and her medical ninjutsu that saved her life and the lives of all the other four Kage. After the war, she retired and gave the job of Hokage to Kakashi Hatake.
Ōnoki was the Tsuchikage of Iwagakure during the Fourth Great Ninja War. He fought pretty well, at least much better than one expected. He helped to seal the dangerous Mū, another former Tsuchikage of Iwagakure. He used his Kekkei Tōta ability of dust release several times during his battle against Mū. He didn’t retire immediately after the war, but a couple of years later.
8. Might Guy
Might Guy’s retirement wasn’t at his will. It was because he cannot fight anymore, because of the damage his leg suffered during the war. When he used the Eight Inner Gates against Madara, he completely owned him. He would have died, but Naruto saved him. Despite all this, he lost his leg, and that’s why he retired.
A was the Raikage of Kumogakure during the War. He was a very powerful shinobi, and even though he had just one arm it didn’t seem to affect his abilities. He is a lightening release user, which increases his speed and power to very high levels. Like Onoki, he didn’t retire right after the war. Instead, he did so 3 or 4 years after the war had finally ended.
Ao is a former war hero from Kirigakure. He was the captain of the sensory division. Along with Inoichi, Ao created a sensing barrier. But when the Ten Tails attacked the headquarters of the allied shinobi forces, everyone there died; except Ao. Ao miraculously was saved but had been severely wounded, and then retired after the war. He was saved by Katasuke using the Ninja technology, and now he works for an organization known as Kara.
5. Mei Terumī
Mei Terumī was the Fifth Mizukage of Kirigakure, and she was active during the Fourth Great Ninja War. She fought well against Madara Uchiha, and many other enemies as well. Mei tried everything in her arsenal, and used both Lava Release, and Boil Release to the fullest. Even though she is powerful, she was barely saved by Tsunade in the end using her medical ninjutsu. She didn’t retire right after the war, but a couple of years after that, and Chojuro finally became the 6th Mizukage.
4. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto Yakushi played a major role in the war. I think if it wasn’t for him, Allied Shinobi forces would have won a bit easily. Kabuto used the reanimation jutsu and bought back countless number of great ninjas. Later on, he was stopped by his own reanimation of Itachi Uchiha. He has retired after the war, and serves in an orphanage.
Shizune is a Jōnin level ninja who served as the adviser of the Fifth Hokage of Konohagakure. Shizune is a very capable medical ninja, and was appointed the head of logistical support and the medical division of the allied shinobi forces. She along with Tsunade Senju seem to have retired from being a ninja.
Anko is a Jōnin from Konohagakure. She was once a student of Orochimaru. Anko can utilize snakes, as she uses the hidden snake hands technique. During the war, she was captured by Kabuto, but he didn’t kill her for some reason. Now she has retired as a ninja, and serves in the ninja academy as a teacher.
1. Choza Akimichi
Choza is the former head of the Akimichi clan. He was a very powerful ninja in his time. During the Fourth Great Ninja War, his power was noticed, as he helped to seal many reanimated shinobi. He has now retired, and now his son Chōji Akimichi serves as the clan leader of Akimichi clan.
