Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back here with yet another NarutoVerse list. In this list, I’ll be counting down the top 10 Taijutsu users of all time in NarutoVerse. Taijutsu is a fighting style which is purely based on hand-to-hand combat. Almost all shinobi use Taijutsu but there are some shinobi who can overwhelm any jutsu with just their incredible hold on Taijutsu.
Let’s begin the list of strongest Taijutsu users of all time
10. Neji Hyuga
Neji Hyuga was a genius from the branch family of the Hyuga clan. He had learned all the techniques of the main family at a very young age. Neji had even mastered his Byakugan at a very young age. Byakugan gave him the ability to see the chakra nodes in one’s body and using his Gentle Fist technique he could stop the chakra flow in the body completely and make his opponents helpless.
9. Fourth Raikage
The fourth Raikage was a very powerful and skillful shinobi. He generally utilizes his brute strength, powered by the Lightning Release Chakra Mode, which makes him exceptionally fast and powerful. Just like B, he uses Taijutsu with Wrestling moves, strong enough to break through the bones of the Susanoo.
8. Third Raikage
A was the third and the most powerful Raikage in the history of Kumogakure. Using the Lightning Release Chakra Mode, he could take on even a powerful Wind Release Technique, Rasenshuriken, and emerged unscathed. His most powerful Nintaijutsu technique was the Hell Stab, where he used his fingers for piercing purposes. His Taijutsu attacks coupled with his lightning release speed were almost impossible to dodge.
7. Tsunade Senju
Tsunade Senju was the fifth Hokage of Konohagakure. She was known as the best medical ninja of her time until recently Sakura Haruno, her student surpassed her. Tsunade was an excellent user of Taijutsu. She was strong enough to create a fissure in the ground with just her index finger. Her Taijutsu generally utilized brute strength, with which she even shattered the Susanoo with a few punches. Tsunade also possesses the Seal of a Hundred Healings, which when released, gives her immense strength and chakra reserves and makes her immortal for time being.
6. Madara Uchiha
Madara Uchiha was the main antagonist in the Naruto series. His Taijutsu skills were evident when he took on the entire Shinobi Forces all alone and managed to overpower them. He was fast enough to keep up with Naruto in his Sage Mode. Using Senjutsu chakra, he fought even the Tailed Beasts and ultimately overpowered them. He dodged Second Hokage’s Flying Thunder God Slash and defeated him in a couple of blows. When he acquired his Six Paths form, Madara was unmatched for a while and his skills exceeded the limits of almost every Shinobi except Might Guy.
5. Naruto Uzumaki
Before acquiring the Sage Mode Naruto’s Taijutsu skills were ordinary. But after he got Sage Mode and then even Six Paths Sage Mode his Taijutsu skills increased dramatically. Now, in the Boruto series, it seems that he has been training all along as he was able to match Momoshiki Otsutsuki, a god in Taijutsu skills in even his base form. In his six paths sage mode, his Taijutsu skills were naturally increased even more.
4. Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke Uchiha has reached a new level with respect to his Taijutsu skills. When he fought Momoshiki Otsutsuki recently in Boruto episode 65. It was seen that with his mastery over his Rinnegan and Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, even Momoshiki Otsutsuki was cornered. If not for his chakra pills and consuming Kinshiki Otsutsuki, Sasuke Uchiha would have defeated him in no time. Like Naruto, his Taijutsu skills have increased dramatically mainly because of his Rinnegan and Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
3. Rock Lee
Rock Lee is the strongest Taijutsu user right now in the NarutoVerse. He is the student of the legendary Shinobi of Konohagakure, Might Guy. He along with an excellent hold on simple Taijutsu is able to use the Eight Inner Gates technique which gives the user an incredible amount of power. It makes the user even more powerful than the Ten-Tails beast. Even though Lee has never opened all eight gates, but we know he is capable of doing it.
2. Might Duy
Might Duy is the only one apart from his son Might Guy who has opened the eighth gate of death. He was an expert user of Taijutsu and we all know how powerful a user becomes after opening the eight gate of death. In order to save his comrades he opened this gate of death and out of the seven swordsmen of the mist he killed 4 and the three barely escaped. He is arguably one of the best Taijutsu users of all time.
1. Might Guy
Might Guy is easily the best ever Taijutsu user in NarutoVerse. When he opened the eighth gate of death. He was able to overpower and almost kill Madara Uchiha who was the Ten-Tails Jinchuuriki at that time. Even Madara Uchiha acknowledged his skill in Taijutsu and said: “I, Madara declare you the strongest”. Might Guy survived using the gate of death only because Naruto Uzumaki saved him.
