With so many dangerous shinobi in the ninja world, it’s not wonder some of them had some powerful children. As a result I have devised a list of the greatest father and son combinations from the Naruto world however, I have left out all the ones from Boruto as we have barely seen enough from them to gage their strength accurately.
So here is my top ten strongest father and son Naruto combinations and trust me, it was tough to choose as there are so many more powerful shinobi who has powerful children.
- Sandaime and Yondaime
Sandamie was the third Raikage while his son was the fourth, Sandaime died after fighting for three consecutive days and nights in order to save his comrades. The third Raikage was considered the strongest Raikage to ever exist, with his son not being too far behind. The fourth Raikage’s lighting Jutsu and speed that matched that of the fourth Hokage, too made him an incredibly strong shinobi. This duo easily ake the top ten but only just scrape in.
- Hiruzen and Asuma
Hiruzen was the third Hokage and only the second man in history to be given the name god of shinobi. Hiruzen mastered many jutsu’s, mastered all chakra natures, was the longest serving Hokage, was said to be more powerful than the previous Hokage and trained the three Legendary Sannin. While as for his son Asuma, he was an incredibly powerful Jounin who was also apart of the Twelve Guardian Ninja’s. Asuma died at the hands of Hidan, a man who was literally immortal and when he was reanimated, Asuma showed us just how strong he really was by killing many allied shinobi forces. We also never got to see Hiruzen fight at his best, with us only seeing his abilities well past his prime. However, from what we have seen both Asuma and Hiruzen would have made a very dangerous combination if they were in their prime together.
- Rasa and Gaara, Kankaro
Rasa was the Fourth Kazekage and renowned for the only one with the ability to manipulate Gold Dust, which made him incredibly powerful due to its light weight. While his youngest son became a Jinchuuriki and too mastered many sand jutsu’s. While as for Kankaro, he became a puppet ninja who could rival that of the legendary Sasori. The three of them together would be tough to beat, even though Gaara’s father was easily beaten by Orochimaru, who the Third Hokage still defeated, despite his old age.
- Sakumo Hatake and Hatake Kakashi
Sakumo was known worldwide as the White Fang of the Leaf although, we never got to see him fight. Sakumo’s power and skill was said to be even greater than all three Legendary Sannin, while as for his son Kakashi, he was too known worldwide as the Copy Ninja or Kakashi of the Sharingan. Kakashi became a jounin at an incredibly early age and mastered his borrowed Sharingan, allowing him to join the Anbu. Kakashi was even able to awaken the Mangekyo Sharingan and Kumi. At best Kakashi had two Sharingan’s and was able to use a Susanoo, as well as all of Obito’s techniques. The two together would have been an incredible duo, who only a select few even think of matching them.
- Uchiha Tajima, Uchiha Izuna and Uchiha Madara
We know little about both Tajima and Izuna however; we do know both awakened the Mangekeyo Sharingan. Also Tajima was the leader of the Uchiha clan, meaning he too would have been incredibly powerful. As for Madara, he was arguably the strongest Shinobi in existence, awakening the Rinnegan and becoming the Ten Tails Jinchuuriki. Also Izuna was considered to be an equal to Madara in term of potential, before he died. These guys power was considered almost unrivalled individually however, there power together would have been even greater.
- Butsuma Senju, Hashirama Senju and Tobirama Senju
Butsuma was the leader of the Senju clan and although we know little about him, that alone means he must have been powerful. While as for his sons Hashirama was considered the god of shinobi, could control all tailed beats, is also the only known user of wood release naturally, was able to use sage mode and became the first Hokage. While as for his brother Tobirama, he invented many jutsu’s including the reanimation, shadow clone and teleportation, as well as also becoming the second Hoakage. The trio jump above Madara and his family, but only just,.
- Uchiha Fugaku, Uchiha Itachi and Uchiha Sasuke
Fungaku was the leader of the Uchiha clan and in charge of the Konoha Village Police. He was also one of three men nominated to take on the role of Fourth Hokage however, he failed to receive the role. Fungaku was sadly never seen fighting but from what we do know, he unlocked the Mangekyo Sharingan during the third great ninja war. His eldest son in Itachi was a prodigy, making the rank of a jounin and later joining the Anbu at such an early age, literally the youngest to do both in Konoha history. Itachi joined the Akatsuki, unlocked the Mangekyo Sharingan, Susanoo, Yata Mirror and Sword of Totsuka, making him one of the most dangerous ninja’s to ever exist. Then there is his brother Sasuke who also is considered a prodigy and momentarily was a member of the Akatsuki. Sasuke wields both the Mangekyo Sharingan and Rinnegan, which allows him to use many powerful visual jutsu’s. He too is capable of summoning a Susanoo and is able to control all tailed beasts. The trio would be incredibly dangerous, especially with all three of them being masters of genjutsu, Itachi especially.
- Namikaze Minato and Uzumaki Naruto
Minato was the fourth Hokage and was known worldwide as the Yellow Flash due to his incredible speed and teleportation, making him capable of taking on hundreds of enemies all at once, which he was famous for doing. Later Minato learned sage mode and Kurama mode, as well as inventing the Rasengan. While as for his son Naruto, he became the seventh Hokage and is considered one of the strongest Ninja’s to ever live. Naruto completed his fathers unfinished jutsu, adding wind chakra to his Rasengan as well as many other jutsu’s, including sage mode and shadow clone. Naruto too befriended Kurama and could in turn use his powers, as well as combining sage mode and Kurama mode. Naruto would later even inherit six path chakra, making him even more powerful. This duo is almost unbeatable and rightfully makes it third on the list.
- Might Dai and Might Guy
Might Dai was not incredibly strong and was known for the eternal gein however, he invented and mastered the eight inner gates technique. With this he was momentarily able to surpass the powers of a Kage and defeat four of the Legendary Seven ninja Swordsmen of the Mist. While as for his son Might Guy, he became a legendary jounin without the technique. However, when Guy he used the gates he was able to defeat Kissame and almost kill Madara at full strength. These guys normally wouldn’t be the most powerful however, when they release all eight inner gates, they are almost impossible to beat and would make it first on the list if it were not for them needing to make the ultimate sacrifice to use such strength.
- Hagoromo Otsutsuki, Ashura Otsutsuki and Indra Otsutsuki
Hagoromo is the Sage of Sixpaths and is the strongest man to ever live, defeating along with his brother, their mother Kaguya who was the originator of chakra. Hagoromo is pretty much a god and also wields the Rinnegan as well as being able to use sage powers. His son Indra was a prodigy and awakened both the Shaingan and Mangekeyo Sharingan, as well as being proficient in lightening style and being able to use a Susanoo of his own. While as for his brother Ashura, he was not highly skilled but worked his way into power, rivalling his older brother. This trio is literally out of this world and should be considered the greatest father and son combination of all time, if they were to team up.
So thats my top ten strongest Naruto father and son combinations, sadly leaving out Shikamaru Nara and Shikaku Nara, Choji Akimichi and Choza Akimichi, as well as Hizashi Hyuga and Neji Hyuga. Do you agree with it? Please let me us know in the comments below.
