Hey everyone! Today we are going to talk about the smartest characters in Naruto, and everyone knows there is a ton of them. We have seen different kind of shinobi in this anime, and all have different kind of specialities. But, using these abilities to their fullest needs some intelligence. While there may be many powerful Naruto characters, few are smart. Today, I have shortlisted some of the most intelligent characters.
Note: This List Is NOT Ranked
15. Black Zetsu
Black Zetsu was created by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. In order to revive her, we saw his master class strategy unfold. He was able to manipulate powerful individuals like Indra, Madara, Obito, Nagato, Kabuto, etc. When he finally revived his mother and fought alongside her, he was always the one suggesting her how to attack, and counter attack.
Konan is one of the most underrated Naruto characters that I’ve seen. She had a very intelligent mind. This was proved when she fought against Obito Uchiha at Amegakure. She studied the Space-time Ninjutsu of Obito, called Kamui, so well that she almost succeeded in killing the Uchiha. Nobody, not even Kakashi was able to deduce it like that. She had put a perfect plan together to finish him, but Obito was only saved by using Izanagi.
13. Madara Uchiha
We all know how intelligent Madara was. He carefully made people think he’s dead while he replaced himself with a clone. Madara’s real purpose when fighting Hashirama was to attain his DNA. He not only escaped, but also was able to take away some of Hashirama’s DNA, allowing him to gain the Rinnegan. He made a plan to revive himself by planting the Rinnegan in Nagato. Madara also brainwashed Obito to carry-out his plan of infinite Tsukuyomi.
