Strongest Akatsuki Members In Naruto Shippuden – Ranked in 2021

Akatsuki all members

Today we will talk about the group of people who fought for Peace in Naruto anime but in different ways. Yes, we will talk about Akatsuki, one of the major antagonist groups in the Naruto series. There are over ten members in Akatsuki, and we will rank them according to their power level, so make sure you read this article till the end. This article will update you on each member’s power level and his role in Akatsuki. But before starting this article, we want to make sure that this article consists of heavy spoilers of the Naruto Shippuden series, which can affect your experience, so if you do not want to get spoiled with spoilers, you can skip this article, or you can read our other spoiler-free articles. So after a quick warning, let’s check out the Strongest Akatsuki Members In Naruto Shippuden.

The story can’t become legendary if there is no legendary villain present in the show, and Naruto just took this line way too seriously. After the first Naruto season, when things were not that complicated, we met the organization which abducted Gaara to get his tailed beast. That was the first introduction from Akatsuki. The group was formerly formed to stop powerful nations to abduct from communities, but later they realized that the only way humanity could be restored was to bring humanity to the ground first. Founded by Nagato, Konan, and Yahiko, they continued to lead this group under the corpse of Pain, who was following the way of Obito, who portrayed himself as Madara and introduced them to Project Tsukuyomi.

There are over ten members in the squad, but not all members are equally powerful, so we have prepared a list of all members from weakest to strongest. So without wasting any time, let’s jump to our main topic.

So let’s find out the power level of each shinobi of the organization.

10. Orochimaru

Orochimaru is one of the most self-interested characters in Naruto who causes extreme chaos in the first season of Naruto. He murdered the fourth KazeKage and Third Hokage brutally in the first season of Naruto. He put a curse mark on Sasuke, which is later removed by Itachi. Orochimaru was manifested on that curse mark. He joined Akatsuki for his self-interest. He wanted to learn different skills, and his hatred toward Konoha is something that makes him wear the ring of Akatsuki.

9. Sasori

The greatest puppet master Sasori is one of the powerful members of Akatsuki. He can summon hundreds of deadly puppets and takedown any powerful opponent. Sasori is nearly immune to poison and cannot be taken down by light weapons as he transforms himself into a puppet. He also knows how to use iron sand which is a signature technique of one of the Kazekage. Although with the help of Lady Chio, he was defeated by Sakura and died on the ground, he is someone who can easily take down any of the low to mid-level shinobi easily.


8. Deidara

The explosion is an art! This line seems soothing but dangerous at the same time. Deidara is one of the extremely powerful members of Akatsuki. He defeated kazekage Gaara in a One on One fair fight and abducted him, and extracted Tailed-Beast from him. Later, Gaara was revived by Lady Chio, resulting in the death of Lady Chio. He is mastered in making explosive bombs using his chakra. Later he was defeated by Sasuke in a very close fight. He joined Akatsuki on the proposal of Pain, and Itachi broke his ego by showing him the off-reality.

7. Konan

A Founding member of Akatsuki and the only woman in the organization, Konan definitely deserves to make it on the list. Moreover, she was the most powerful Kunoichi in the entire Naruto anime. She was the master in using Paper-style Jutsu but was later killed by Obito in a one-on-one fight as Obito wanted to get the Rinnegan of the fallen Nagato. She portrayed herself as an angel in front of Jiraya and gave him tough competition until Pain arrived at the scene.

6. Kisame Hoshigaki

What can you expect from the one who holds Samehada, the mightiest sword in Naruto? This weapon allows Kisame to eat the chakra of the opponent, which it infuses into itself. Moreover, Hisame is a mastered water style user who belongs to the Villain Hidden in the Mist. His appearance looks like a shark. He is a companion of Itachi and has a very complex backstory which you will understand when you watch the series.

5. Kakuzu

Kakuzu is a near-immortal and the most senior member of Akatsuki. He has many working hearts and a monstrous body. Kakuzu is a money seeker and joined the Akatsuki at the request of Pain. He also fought with the First Hokage and has a terrifying history. He was later defeated by Naruto by his new technique, Rasenshuriken. People say that he has the physical strength to take down Tailed-Beast. And as we said above, he is ageless.

4. Hidan

The only fully immortal member of Akatsuki and the partner of Kakuzu, Hidan is an extremely powerful character in Naruto Shippuden. Hidan can kill anyone just by tasting their blood, and he is the killer of Asuma Sarutobi. He gained his immortality by worshipping the death god Jashin. He was defeated and buried under the ground by Shikamaru. Still, we don’t know whether the Hidan is alive or not in Boruto.

3. Obito Uchiha (Tobi)

“You Either Die As A Hero Or Live Long Enough To See Yourself Becoming A Villain”. This line perfectly syncs with this character. He was considered dead when a huge rock fell on him when Kakashi, Rin, and Obito were fighting with Stone Village Ninjas. He gave one of his Sharingan to Kakashi and told him to take care of Rin. But later, he was saved by Madara and lured in a dirty trick. Due to one misunderstanding (Not going to Reveal here), he becomes one of the biggest haters of Kakashi. He portrayed himself as Madara and lured Nagato to collect all the Tailed Beasts Chakra to make Project Tsukoyomi successful. He was way powerful with his Sharingan back then, but when he got Rinnegan from Nagato, he became Invincible.

2. Itachi Uchiha

Even though the major protagonist of the anime is Naruto, but this character is the most loved character of the show. Even when he was young, he used to think as a Hokage. Itachi is extremely powerful and the most intelligent character of the show. He sacrificed his everything just to make Konohagakure safe. Rather than beating around the bush, he decided to keep his feeling within himself and made Sasuke hate him so he could kill him and become powerful. His refined Uchiha powers can take down anything. Even after dying, he protects Leaf Village from Kabuto. This character is someone who deserves his own anime, and two novels have already been written just for this character.

1. Pain/Nagato

So, now let’s talk about the leader of Akatsuki, Pain. He holds two Rinnegan, which makes him extremely powerful without any limit to his powers. He can use sage of the six path’s powers, and his ultimate gravitational pull is something you don’t want to indulge with. Pain destroyed the whole Konoha village just by using his gravitational power. He killed all the ninjas in the village, including Kakashi. But later, after a long fight with Naruto, he revives everyone and thanks Naruto to keep alive the dream of Jiraya sensei. Subsequently, he is the Strongest Akatsuki Member In Naruto Shippuden.
