Top 10 Naruto Shippuden Fight Scenes


These ninjas do not know the meaning of the word subtlety. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Naruto Shippuden Fight Scenes.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the battles that took place in this sequel series and ranking them on just how mind-blowing, impactful and emotionally poignant they are. As you might have guessed, you can expect huge spoilers down the line!

#10: Taka vs. Killer Bee


This was pretty poor planning on the Akatsuki’s part here. Shafting off the dangerous task of capturing the second strongest Tailed Beast onto a bunch of kids? HR must be non-existent. Luckily for us, this battle served as the perfect introduction to the rapping Jinchuriki Killer Bee. While his bars may have been a weak, the Eight Tails inside him was certainly not. A true monster, he nearly flattened Sasuke. Heck he was only saved at the last minute thanks to him unlocking the power of the Amaterasu.

#9: Sasuke vs. The Kage


Then again, maybe Sasuke was better off with the Eight Tails. After Tobi/Madara/Obito declares war on the shinobi world, the vengeful Uchiha crashes the party and tests his mettle against the strongest ninja in the land. While the Raikage takes him to town with lightning-infused wrestling moves, he still manages to hold his own thanks to the power of his Susanoo. Seeing Sasuke slip further down the path of darkness, the confrontation with Gaara, it all serves to remind us just how wild Sasuke’s character progression had become over the course of the series.

#8: Shikamaru vs. Hidan


It’s quite the conundrum; who would win in a fight between a genius and an immortal. After Akatsuki’s resident zealot killed his mentor, Shikamaru also took the path of revenge, only this time he played it smart. While Hidan’s inability to die makes him quite the difficult opponent to overcome, Shikamaru’s tactics eventually win him the day, as he proceeds to blow Hidan to pieces before he buries him. While he more than deserved such a fate, it is kind of a shame though. We miss that foul-mouthed murderer!

#7: Sasuke vs. Danzo


Both mired in corruption and proficient in killing, a confrontation between these two was never going to end peacefully. Given Danzo’s shady dealings pushed Itachi towards killing the rest of the Uchiha, and he himself was more than eager to get his hands on Sasuke’s Sharingan, these two wanted each other dead badly. Despite his frail demeanour, Danzo turned out to be no pushover, since he had a whole variety of Sharingan injected into his arm. Throw in the fact he could sacrifice each eye to turn reality into an illusion, and we’re surprised Sasuke survived this one.

#6: Jiraya vs. Pain


This was just heartbreaking. Despite his pervy nature, Jiraya had become an endearing mentor figure over the course of the series, highlighted when he chose to confront the leader of the Akatsuki, who actually ended up turning out to be his old pupil Nagato. While he puts up a valiant fight, even at full power Jiraya is grossly underprepared to take on the might of the Six Paths of Pain. Despite meeting his end, he dies with a smile on his face, knowing he has entrusted his will on to Naruto.

#5: Kakashi vs. Obito


While this battle does indeed have fluid animation, a frantic pace and a tighter focus on its combatants, this one is all about the feels. After its revealed that Tobi is actually Obito, Kakashi finally gets a chance to get some answers from his thought-dead friend. Said answers just happen to come in the form of a close quarters slugfest inside of a pocket dimension. As the punches role out, we see flashbacks of their time as young students. Seeing just how far they have come and the pain they have had to endure assures this as one of the most emotional battles in the series.

#4: Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi and Obito vs. Kaguya


It may have been a clusterfuck of a battle, but by god was it entertaining. As the true final villain, and with more powers than she knew what to do with, Kaguya was an obscenely strong foe. Even with Naruto and Sasuke busting out their new Six Paths and Rinnegan abilities, it still took the aid of their allies to finally put the rabbit goddess down. The fact Kakashi got a chance to shine with his own Susanoo is just the icing on the cake.

#3: Sasuke vs. Itachi


This had been building since day one. After tossing aside his friends, village and reputation for the sake of revenge, Sasuke threw his lot in with master criminal Orochimaru just to gain the power needed to kill his older brother. Turns out their fated meeting was more than worth the wait. The true force of the Sharingan is revealed as both brothers use every kind of trick in the book in order to slay the other, eventually leading to Sasuke’s victory. Of course, the whole thing is flipped on its head when its revealed that Itachi was a good guy all along.

#2: Naruto vs. Pain


The Hidden Leaf is in ruins, the Six Paths of Pain are close to claiming victory, hope is lost. There’s only one knuckle-headed ninja who can save the day. Dead set on avenging Jiarya and armed with the power of Sage Mode, Naruto finally finds a way to battle Pain on an equal level. Watching him use legitimate strategy to defeat each of his foes while still maintaining the determination that’s come to define his character, this fight is a great example of how our protagonist has matured from the jokester he once was. Oh, and yeah, Hinata totally confessed to him mid-battle, so there’s that too.

Before we reveal our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

Sakura vs. Sasori

Sasuke and Itachi vs. Kabuto

Sasuke vs. Deidara

#1: Naruto vs. Sasuke


After so many ups and downs, the anime couldn’t have chosen a better confrontation to go out on. The threats of Kaguya and Madara may be behind them, but Sasuke and Naruto still had a score to settle. As their ideologies clash, the two engage in a fight that somehow manages to balance both spectacle and emotional resonance beautifully. On the one hand you have jutsu so large in scale that they nearly decimate everything around them, only to be followed by an almost nuanced clash where the two fatigued friends lay on punch after punch, fuelled only by sheer willpower. The best of what Naruto has to offer can all be witnessed right here.
