Ok so i may be alone in saying this but based on what we've seen so far which shinobi village is Ranked Highest of the five great nations and which not of the five should be included or ranked equally alongside or above out of the great 5.
I asked solely because after the war if ninjas still exists/have their abilities like the TsugiKage said the Village with the Strongest Power will rule and for those of you that haven't noticed only the great five nations+samurai are participating in the War giving other nations like the sound(though small) an edge over the alliance.
In my Opinion it goes like this . .. .. ..
Rank# 1 Konohagakure -Hidden Leaf (Obviously) Rank# 1 Amegakure -Hidden Rain (Their leader singlehandedly defeated Konohagakure) Rank# 2 Kumogakure -Hidden Cloud (Strong Leader Loyal followers meaning none of them joined Akatsuki) Rank# 3 Iwagakure -Hidden Stone (kekkei tota) Rank# 4 Kirigakure -Hidden Mist (Because of the bloodmist days) Land of Earth Takumi Village -Hidden Artisans (Weapons Specialists) Rank# 5 Takigakure -Hidden WaterFall (Because they Caught a tailed beast) Rank# 5 Otogakure -Hidden Sound (All their ninjas Though bested by konoha were very talented) Rank #6 Sunagakure -Hidden Sand(All their Kages died very silly) Rank #7 Hoshigakure -Hidden Star (Weak ninjas) Rank #8 Jōmae Village -Hidden Lock (Just Lame)
we know much about Konohagakure more than any
other village, so naturally based on what is
available konoha is the most powerful shinobi
Konoha also has the most
powerful coveted abilities. The sharigan,
byakugan, senju power.
Konoha also has
produced most of the most powerful shinobi ever.
Hashirama, Madara, Minnato, Hiruzen, Jiraiya, Oro,
itachi, Guy, Kakashi, etc. Even konoha tops in
terms of power with the current generation of
but to a point thats like u said we know more
about the leaf. lighting had the gold and silver
brothers who put the 2nd in a hopsital. the 3rd
and 4th raikage and they have been gearing up for
war collecting stuff.
they also have
leaf currently only has one. huyga. uchia are
dead, and besides the 1st really no other senju
was talked about or been mentioned except tsunade.
Minato was stronger than A and B..they fought
together against him, and he could've taken
them out if he wanted...Bee could never be as fast
as Naruto even if he used his beast power, Itachi
alone is stronger than most of the ninjas in the
manga, Pain was beaten whether or not he
didn't actually got killed by Naruto..Naruto
wasn't gonna kill him anyways but he still
was DEFEATED, and it was his first time facing
defeat..even back in the old days the leaf was the
strongest which is the reason the 1st gave the
villages a tailed beast to atleast even out the
power, and you're right they lost the
Uchiha's power but they still are stronger
than the rest of the villages when it comes down
to a fight, and that's why all of the
villages wanted to take them down and steal powers
from them..sand, sound, lightning
Plus out of the four great shinobi wars that was
fought, konoha took part in all of them and won
TWO out of the four, the second war and the third
war. That is enough to put them up in first place
for experience in warfare.
but thats the past right now the leaf is weak
really weak. they barely had people for missions.
and the level of ninja is low. the mist lighting
and earth are better than them right now. and the
4th wasnt trying and neither was bee he would have
have had problems with bee. naruto isnt that much
faster than bee.
i don't think the senju died off. More
likely, the bloodline has been diluted. So far we
are only sure of 2 100% pure blooded senju
(hashirama and Tobirama). I think there is a story
here for kishi to tell.
currently I still think konoha is the strongest.
As I said such an analysis will be skewed toward
konoha because we know more about it. Consider
naruto's generation. How many shinobi of
about naruto's age from other villages do u
