Akatsuki was an organisation founded by Nagato, Yahiko, and Konan. Through the years, it changed a lot, and had several different leaders as well. All known Akatsuki members were S-Rank rogue ninja from different shinobi villages. There were even some Kage level members in Akatsuki. Now, let us talk about all the twelve members of Akatsuki as per our Ranking.
Zetsu had two, halves Black and White Zetsu. Black Zetsu was created by Kaguya’s will, and did everything he could to bring back Kaguya Ōtsutsuki to life. While as White Zetsu was extracted from the Demonic possession by Black Zetsu. Back Zetsu could communicate through thoughts. White Zetsu was able to use wood release because of Hashirama’s DNA. But, their specialty was knowledge. They weren’t the strongest fighters.
11. Juzo Biwa
Juzo was a Jonin from Kirigakure, and former member of the seven swordsmen
He later became the member of Akatsuki, where he was partnered with Itachi Uchiha. In my opinion, he was a Kage level Shinobi. Being very skilled in Kenjutsu, he wielded Kubikiribocho which could generate iron from the victims blood. He was able to survive Duy’s Eight Inner Gates form. But, he died fighting Yagura.
