Do you want to know who is stronger – Naruto or Sasuke? Then let me tell you that no one can mark one of them as stronger than the other. There are many people who will say Naruto is stronger. But there are people too who will vote for Sasuke. 

More than millions of people love to watch anime and manga in the world, and among them, there is hardly any person who does not love to watch Naruto. Naruto is one of the best anime shows, if not the best, in the world of anime. In this show, the central character is Naruto who roams around the Land of the Shinobi while fighting many battles.

In this show only, Sasuke is another strong character. Though the central character of this show is Naruto, Sasuke is shown as the best fighter of all in the storyline. But Naruto is the character whom the makers established as the superior fighter. In the story, Naruto and Sasuke clashed 5 times. Sasuke won 2 times, and 2 times the result was unclear.

But in the last fight, Naruto emerged victorious. And this has arisen the question of who is stronger – Naruto or Sasuke once more, and this with a higher impact. This is why I am writing this article only to clarify the answer to this question so that you can have a clearer idea about Naruto and Sasuke and understand their ability and power.

If you understand these two characters, then you only will be able to decide who is stronger than them.

So, let’s start!

Who Is Stronger Naruto Or Sasuke? 

Before discussing the details on this topic, do you know all the characters of Naruto? Let us take a look at all the characters along with their ranks and the reasons behind their strength.

12OrochimaruPowerful ninjutsu and Snake Sage Technique
13Kabuto YakushiPowerful ninjutsu and Edo Tensei
14GaaraPowerful defense and sand manipulation
15Killer BTaijutsu and control of Eight-Tails power

If you follow the storyline from the beginning, you will see that Naruto once was a very weak ninja and incompetent as well. He knew nothing but a few pointless and sexy techniques. But as time passed on, Naruto learned many advanced techniques which made him the strongest shinobi in history.

According to the story, Naruto will start to fit into his wide stores of very strong chakra.

Naruto has already improved his abilities, but he often used half of Kurama to achieve these changes.

But if you talk about Sasuke, he was always believed to be stronger than Naruto, though there is no solid evidence supporting this belief. But Sasuke has mastered some great skills and techniques that made him a very brilliant and strong shinobi.

Sasuke also has a potent chakra, but his chakra is mainly made of negative energy. And as Sasuke has only one Rinnegan, Naruto easily outclasses him in this.

Naruto And Sasuke Previous Battles

Who Is Stronger Naruto Or Sasuke

As I said before. Naruto and Sasuke fought 5 battles till now. The first battle between them took place in the 107th episode of Naruto. The episode was titled The Battle Begins: Naruto vs Sasuke. Sasuke challenged Naruto in a battle, and Naruto accepted the challenge. And after some time during the fight, Sasuke develops his Rasengan and Naruto develops his Chidori.

But the result of the battle was not decided as Kakashi stepped in and stopped the battle. But before this incident, Naruto’s Rasengan seemed more effective than the Chidori of Sasuke. This made people think that Naruto is stronger than Sasuke.

In the 128th episode of Naruto, titled A Cry on Deaf Ears, these two characters battled again, where Naruto relentlessly struck Sasuke multiple times but Sasuke did not get a single injury. Sasuke wanted to kill Naruto in order to become the strongest one, but could not stop Naruto. So Sasuke trained to level 2 of Cursed Seal, but this took a great personal cost.

The 3rd battle took place in the 215th episode of Naruto Shippuden titled Two Fates. Here they got involved in a small brawl. Later in this episode, Sasuke departs after a conversation.

The 4th battle took place in episode no 257 of Naruto Shippuden. Here we saw Naruto and Sasuke’s early days of rivalry in the Academy. Naruto failed to defeat Sasuke even back then as he was too clumsy and reckless.

The 476th episode of Naruto Shippuden, titled The Final Battle, was the final episode of the series where the historical rivalry between Sasuke and Naruto finally got the result by the defeat of Sasuke. This established Naruto as the superior fighter.
