Naruto, one of the most beloved anime and manga series of all time, ended nearly a decade ago but still has a massive fan following worldwide. The show's action-packed storyline featured various ninjas pitted against each other, wielding chakra, specialized weapons, and various jutsu.
While every ninja in the series was skilled in their own right, some of them possessed incredible power and unique nicknames based on their traits and battle tactics. Here are the top 10 coolest ninja nicknames in Naruto, ranked:
10 God's Angel - Konan
As the only female member of the Akatsuki, Konan was always by Pain's side, and the Hidden Rain Village considered Pain to be a God. They held Konan in high regard, calling her "God's Angel." She developed the Dance of the Shinigami technique, which converts her chakra into paper, allowing her to create weapons and even wings that make her look like an angel.
9 Leaf's Noble Green Beast - Might Guy
Might Guy is a taijutsu master who refers to himself as the "Leaf's Noble Green Beast." His full-green attire perfectly matches his beast-like fighting style. While he may not be the most skilled with genjutsu and ninjutsu, he unlocks immense power when he opens several of the Eight Inner Gates.
8 Yellow Flash Of The Leaf - Minato Namikaze
Minato Namikaze is one of the most powerful ninjas in Naruto's history, having perfected the Flying Thunder God Technique created by the 2nd Hokage. With his immense speed and blond hair, he was nicknamed the "Yellow Flash of the Leaf."
7 The Non-Person - Mu
Mu, the Stone Village's 2nd Tsuchikage, was known as "The Non-Person" due to his Dustless Bewildering Cover technique. This technique allowed him to bend light using water vapor, making him invisible and undetectable by physical means or chakra sensing.
6 Scourge Of The Hidden Mist - Kisame
Kisame, a loyal Akatsuki member, was known as the "Scourge of the Hidden Mist" due to his attempts to overthrow the Land of Water's Government and his involvement in several assassinations. His shark-like appearance, complete with gills and pointed teeth, and the sentient sword, Samehada, that allowed him to transform into a human-shark hybrid, further cemented his fearsome reputation.
5 The Shinobi Of Darkness - Danzo
Danzo, the most hated Naruto villain, earned the nickname "The Shinobi of Darkness" due to his unsanctioned and morally dubious actions. These actions caused Yahiko's death, led to the Uchiha massacre, and allowed Orochimaru to conduct experiments on innocent people. Despite his questionable methods, Danzo operated in the shadows, ostensibly to protect the Leaf's interests.
4 God Of Shinobi- Hashirama Senju
As the founder of the Hidden Leaf and its first Hokage, Hashirama Senju was a legendary ninja, capable of defeating Madara Uchiha in battle. He possessed immense chakra reserves, the ability to use Wood Release through natural means, and the power to heal himself without hand signs. These traits, among others, earned him the title "God of Shinobi."
3 White Fang Of The Leaf
Sakumo Hatake is Kakashi's father, and he is one of the best ninjas that the Leaf has ever produced. When he was in his prime, Sakumo was said to be more skilled than the Legendary Sannin. When Stone ninja saw a young Kakashi, they mistook him for Sakumo and were immediately stricken with fear.
When he was alive, Sakumo wielded the White Light Chakra Sabre, a small sword that would emit a streak of white chakra every time he swung it. This saber is the reason why Sakumo was known as the "White Fang of the Leaf."
2 Sasori Of The Red Sand 0 - Sasori
Sasori was a member of the Akatsuki and an incredibly powerful ninja. He mastered the Sand Village's puppet technique to the point that he was able to kill the 3rd Kazekage. He could control multiple puppets at once with incredible precision and was able to conquer a small nation with 100 puppets. Sasori earned the nickname "Sasori of the Red Sand" because his puppets spilled enemy blood onto the sand with ease.
1 Demon Of The Hidden Mist - Zabuza
Zabuza Momochi was the first villain that Naruto and his friends faced. He was part of the Mist Village's Seven Ninja Swordsmen and wielded the Executioner's Blade, which repaired itself whenever it tasted blood. Zabuza was renowned for his vicious fighting skills, and he killed 100 of his fellow classmates singlehandedly. His thick and monstrous chakra sometimes took the form of a demon shroud, earning him the nickname "Demon of the Hidden Mist."
