Who is the strongest Akatsuki Member? Who is the weakest among the Akatsuki member? Ever wonder about that? Here is your answer to that:
Zetsu might be behind all the evil did that had happened over time. But when it comes down to the battle and might, he is the least strong character in this list.
The only 3 great ability that he possesses are:
- Merge with someone and stay hidden (e.g. – Sasuke)
- Fake someone’s appearance as well as his chakra nature.
- Transport through the ground.
And all of these abilities are in no use to defeat any formidable opponent. So, there should be no question about his position in the last of the list.
Hidan was the last new member at the time Obito showed up as Tobi. This S rank shinobi got teamed up with Kakuzu in Akatsuki. Hidan is the one who is suspected to kill the Chinoike clan in the Valley of Hell. Despite being a highly religious person, Hidan was foul-mouthed.
- Adept in Bakijutsu.
- Very agile.
- Incredible durability as well as stamina
- Jashin Ritual and Curse
Kakuzu is one of the characters who fought the first Hokage Hashirama Senju. Well, as the details were not in manga or anime to be found, it is quite understandable how one-sided the fight was. And, as Kakuzu had 5 heart, it was quite possible to survive even with 1 of his hearts. Not to mention it was Hashirama whom he battled against, not Tobirama. So, forgiving and letting live his opponent is typical Hashirama thing.
But, Kakuzu had some pretty cool abilities under his sleeve.
- He could use all 5 chakra nature thanks to his 5 heart.
- Kakuzu was proficient in Taijutsu
- Kakuzu was immortal.
- He was highly enduring and had great physical power.
Konan is one of the members of team Jiraiya along with Nagato and Yahiko. She is mainly famous for her paper manipulation. She could fly, she could make paper clone, and she could follow anyone using paper. Konan even could use her papers as kunai. In the training period, Jiraiya used water to brush off his paper kunai. After that Konan used oil as a protection over her papers and overcome that.
The deadliest thing that Konan had in her arsenal is her insane amount of paper-bombs. Against Obito, in a deadly battle, she used hundreds of Billions of paper-bombs. As Obito had his space-time ninjutsu to counter any kind of jutsu, he dodged it. But, without any kind of teleportation jutsu, 600 billion paper bomb is just deadlock.
- Konan was a sensory type ninja.
- Konan had an unlimited reserve of Paper Bomb to summon without any notice.
- She created Dance of the Shikigami.
- Konan had a very sharp intellectual thought process.
Deidara is an artist and the explosive is his color to paint. And you got to admit Deidara is pretty good at it. At least judging by his standard I mean. He can fly, he can make things explode. He can make such a gigantic explosive that would blow an entire village or more. He can even make such small explosive insects or ants that will follow you and explode in a close distance.
That alone is one hell of a dangerous ability, isn’t it? And he was intelligent enough to judge a situation and to act upon it. Remember, he caught Gaara all by himself.
Sasori became famous in the Third Great Ninja War. It was stated that he turned the sand red by blood. Sasori was the one who killed the Third Kazekage, who was considered as the strongest Ninja ever lived in Hidden Sand Village.
Sasori used his eleventh puppet Hiruko as both armor and weapon. He almost all the time hid inside that puppet of his. In fact, most of the Akatsuki member thought that Hiruko was his real body.
- The creator of Human Puppetry
- Sasori made a puppet of himself that made him immortal, as long as his heart was not destroyed.
- Sasori could use his human puppets and their KekkeiGenkaii the way he wanted.
- Sasori was sly and had sharp analytical abilities.
- He had profound knowledge over different kind of poisons.
- He could manipulate and control other human even against their will.
The legendary Sannin might not be the strongest among the Akatsuki members. But had some crazy feat. Killing the Kazekage would be one of them. Orochimaru was a prodigy in his generation. He knows all sorts of jutsu including both legal and forbidden jutsu. The fact that he used those forbidden techniques with no hesitation is what makes him a formidable foe for anyone.
- Any and all kind of jutsu except the Kekkei Genkai.
- All 5 Chakra Nature, Yin and Yang release.
- All forbidden jutsu.
- Wood release.
The tailless tail beast, Kisame Hoshigaki is vastly known as one of the seven ninja swordsmen o the mist. Kisame had an inhuman amount of chakra to use. It was stated that his 30% was equal to Naruto’s Chakra (not 9 tails).
His unique sword Samehada could steal chakra from his opponents and give it to him. You remember the fight against Killer B and the fight he fought against Might guy, right? Though he got hostages there, it was not quite an easy feat for Might guy.
- Massive reserves of Chakra even for an Akatsuki member.
- Kisame was renowned as the Tail Beast without tail.
- He was immense physical power, speed and strength.
- He could summon a thousand feeding shark.
3) Itachi Uchiha:
The Genjutsu master, Itachi is certainly one of the smartest and strongest characters in the list. Both physically and philosophically. His Tsukuyomi is literally a torture chamber for him to torture his opponents. Itachi had half body Susanoo with Yata mirror in one hand and Totsuka blade in another hand.
- Mastery over Genjutsu.
- Yata Mirror.
- Totsuka Blade.
- Adept in Taijutsu.
- Highly intellect.
2) Nagato Uzumaki:
Nagato is the founder member of Akatsuki. He, Konan and Yahiko created the organization to create peace. Nagato learned almost every jutsu from Jiraiya at the age of 13. He had rinnegan. With the power of the sage of the six paths, he was on a whole different league. Nagato could bring back the dead to the life. Nagato could repel any physical or ninjutsu based attack. He could absorb any ninjutsu or sage jutsu chakra. Nagato could summon an insane amount of bizarre creature from god knows where. Nagato could pull anything toward him with universal pull.
- Rinnegan: the ultimate Doujutu prowess.
- All 5 Chakra Nature.
- Undefeated till his death.
- Unusually vast chakra reserve.
- Absorbing Chakra.
1) Obito Uchiha:
Obito uchiha or tobi is the strongest Akatsuki member out there hands down. Though he used Madara’s name as an alias to make his job easy, he was a hell of strong on his own. But, why is our boy Tobi on the top of the list though? How come he trump Nagato and Itachi? Mangekyu Sharingan: Even though we previously stated that rinnegan is far superior to Sharingan, let’s just say it’s different here. Obito had a unique space-time ninjutsu which is known as Kamui. This ocular jutsu gave him a pocket dimension to teleport. He could send any of his body parts to that dimension to dodge his opponent’s attack. On the right eye, he had a similar but different ability which he gave to his friend Kakashi in the war.
- Unique Space-time ninjutsu (Kamui).
- Wood release.
