The 3rd and 4th hokage are 1 and 2. I say the 3rd is the number 1 cuz he lived a really long life compared to the 4th who probably didnt reach his 30s. N and 3 has to be Nagato. Now not counting the sage of six paths these are the best three ninja produce so far and here is why. The 4th hokage created the dead demon seal and taught it to the 3rd. That jutsu alone mean they can pretty much make it a tie no matter who they face. Not to mention the 4th was faster than anyone n had the flying thunder god technique. The third hokage new every jutsu in the leaf village and even way past his prime he could beat the 1st and 2nd hokages and orochimaru. And during the fight monkey king emma even said that was pathetic compared to what he use to be able to do. He wasnt call the god of shinobi for no reason. Now nagato said he was far from the sage of six paths but he was still incredible strong. First of just with the six paths alone he is able to destroy any village. Next idk how many of u actually watch the anime but if u seen what he did to hanzo and his army u should know he cant be beat one on one forsuree.
I will take the trouble to work the age difference

sometime before Danzo. The 16yrs i stated is
closer to the fact than yours.
loved the village, so that is also your excuse?
this is pointless, take your itachi; I will take
It does matter which
character said it? For it to have substance the
character must know what he is talking about. For
example someone as old as Tsunade doesn't
even know how strong Hashirama was. In the recent
chapter she is so amazed at the power of her
grandfather to be able to have defeated someone
Also age is not that an
issue for a shinobi so stop using it as an excuse.
The fact that you are younger doesn't mean
you're stronger. Onoki is the oldest kage but
he is the one Madara sees as a problem and not the
