Top 10 Strongest Reanimated Shinobi

Reanimated Shinobi

Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. In this post, I’ll talk about the strongest reanimated shinobi of all time in NarutoVerse. Reanimation in Naruto means summoning a person from afterlife or in other words bringing the dead back to life. During the fourth great war, almost all legendary shinobi were reanimated by Kabuto Yakushi and Orochimaru also reanimated a few and here are the strongest among them.

Let’s begin the list of top 10 strongest reanimated shinobi

10. Hanzo
reanimated shinobi
Hanzo of the Salamander was a legendary shinobi from Amegakure. He was reanimated by Kabuto Yakushi during the war. Hanzo was an exceptionally dangerous character as he possessed the venom of the salamander. Even a small drop of this venom is enough to kill a human in mere seconds.

9. Mu
reanimated Shinobi
Mu was also reanimated by Kabuto Yakushi. He is the former Tsuchikage of Iwagakure. Mu like Onoki had the ability to use the particle release aka dust release which is a Kekkei Tota ability. This ability is so dangerous that it can reduce anything into the dust particles whether it be a human, a mountain or even a perfect Susano’o.

8. Third Raikage
Third Raikage is still known as the most powerful Raikage in Kumogakure history. He was also reanimated by Kabuto Yakushi during the fourth great war. He used the lightning release to enhance the speed and strength of his attacks. His technique known as Hell Stab was so powerful that he could easily destroy even a mountain with just his finger which speaks volumes about how dangerous he was.

7. Tobirama Senju
Edo Tensei shinobi
Tobirama Senju was the second Hokage of Konohagakure. He was reanimated by Orochimaru during the fourth great war. Tobirama was known as The Creator as he had created numerous ninjutsu techniques during his lifetime. During the war, he demonstrated techniques like shadow clone jutsu and teleportation jutsu. He is the one who even created the reanimated jutsu in the first place.

6. Itachi Uchiha
strongest shinobi
Itachi Uchiha was reanimated by Kabuto but was able to free himself from his control via Kotoamatsukami ability, which he had stored in Naruto through a crow. It was Itachi Uchiha who defeated Kabuto Yakushi by using Izanami and this released his mass reanimation jutsu which he had used in the war.

5. Hiruzen Sarutobi
strongest edo Tensei
Hiruzen Sarutobi is the third and the longest reigning Hokage of Konohagakure. He was reanimated by Orochimaru. During the war, Hiruzen Sarutobi demonstrated his strength. Even though Hiruzen was reanimated in an older state, he cannot be considered to be a mere pushover. He was known as The Professor as he had knowledge about almost all jutsu that existed.

4. Minato Namikaze
strongest shinobi
Minato Namikaze was reanimated by Orochimaru and was the fourth Hokage of Konohagakure. Minato Namikaze showcased his monstrous strength when he surprised everyone when he turned out to be the perfect Jinchuuriki of Kurama. Minato could use the teleportation technique even better than Tobirama Senju, and we even saw him transform into Kurama mode.

3. Hashirama Senju
reanimated shinobi
Hashirama Senju was the first ever Hokage of Konohagakure. We saw his true strength when he was reanimated during the war. Hashirama was able to fight Madara Uchiha for quite some time but was defeated overwhelmingly. But he did succeed in stopping the Ten-Tails for a sometime using his powerful Wood Release.

2. Nagato Uzumaki
reanimated characters
Nagato Uzumaki is the first Rinnegan user we saw in the NarutoVerse. When he was reanimated he was able to use his Rinnegan to its fullest because of his unlimited chakra reserves. Nagato was even able to beat two perfect Jinchuuriki, Killer Bee and Naruto Uzumaki at the same time with ease which is literally an amazing feat. In this form, he is certainly tough to beat.

1. Madara Uchiha
strongest shinobi
Madara Uchiha was the legendary shinobi of Uchiha. He was reanimated by Kabuto Yakushi by making modifications which resulted in him being reanimated in his younger form. Madara was able to free himself from Kabuto because he remembered the hand seals of reanimation jutsu. He is still arguably the strongest reanimated shinobi as he had dual Rinnegan and later even became the Jinchuuriki of the Ten-Tails.
