Every Naruto Movie Villain Ranked Strongest to Weakest

Hiruko -  Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Will of Fire

If you haven’t seen the Naruto movies, you’re missing out on some great villains – as well as some who are kind of pathetic. We’re going to break down all the major villains in the Naruto movies, and it’s your job to rank them by strength. 

Among the strongest are the members of the Ōtsutsuki clan, some of whom are said to be even more powerful than the series Big Bad, Kaguya. There’s also Menma Uzumaki, an alternate reality version of Naruto who ended up working for Tobi. But these big-name villains aren’t the only ones who get the spotlight – Mui, the warden of Blood Prison, had some pretty sick flame jutsu up his sleeve. 

9. Ishidate – Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom

Ishidate - Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom

After being exiled from his original home, Ishidate was hired by Shabadaba to eliminate the overthrow and eliminate the royal Tsuki family. Aside from standards taijutsu moves, he fought using two weapons. The first was a gas that altered his opponent’s senses and made it difficult for them to react in battle. The second was a weapon that let him not just control stone, but also turn people into it. This can be reversed, but it will still cause permanent damage, so it’s definitely not something you’d want to get hit with.

8. Mukade – Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Lost Tower

Mukade - Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Lost Tower

Mukade, also known as Anrokuzan, has different abilities depending on the timeline. In the present day, he’s a fairly weak individual whose only ability appears to be time travel. But twenty years in the past, things are quite different. Thanks to the seemingly endless flow of Ryūmyaku Chakra, he can control hundreds of puppets at once, control people’s bodies, absorb chakra, and control weapons. He also modified his own body into a puppet one, which can be powered up into the form of a gigantic centipede. His puppet body, combined with his regenerative abilities, made him nearly immortal. 

But with his power source sealed, he was essentially helpless, and was destroyed by Naruto’s Supreme Ultimate Rasengan.

7. Mui – Naruto the Movie: Blood Prison

Mui - Naruto the Movie: Blood Prison

Hōzuki Castle, also known as Blood Prison, is run by Mui, a Kusagakure jonin. Once he becomes the guardian of the Box of Ultimate Bliss, he tries to open it using his son Muku’s chakra. Because Muku doesn’t have enough chakra, he’s sucked into the box. Mui dedicates his life to trying to retrieve his son.

His most prominent abilities were fire release techniques, particularly one that used Juinjutsu to not only stop the target from using their own chakra, but also absorbed chakra from them using a seal. He could also summon a fire-breathing dog with two heads that had been passed on from warden to warden. 

6. Shinnō – Naruto Shippūden the Movie: Bonds

Shinnō - Naruto Shippūden the Movie: Bonds

Originally appearing to be a kindly doctor, Shinnō is actually a cruel and manipulative villain. He’s a master of regenerative techniques, some of which he taught to Orochimaru. In order to achieve a bodily transformation that would make him nearly invulnerable, he combined his Body Revival Technique with the Dark Chakra he received from the Zero-Tails. The Zero-Tails, by the way, is a malevolent creature that feeds off of negative emotions and is not related to the Tailed Beasts from the rest of the series. 

Once separated from the Zero Tails by Naruto’s Tornado Rasengan and Sasuke’s power moves from his Cursed Seal form, Shinnō’s bulked-up body withers to almost nothing before the Zero-Tails destroys him once and for all.

5. Hiruko –  Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Will of Fire

Hiruko -  Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Will of Fire

Hiruko is a missing-nin from Konohagakure. Once friends with the Legendary Sannin, Hiruko’s dangerous experimentation apparently led to the Third Hokage ordering his assassination. While it’s not clear if this actually happened or if this was merely something Hiruko claimed, what is clear is that he left the village and hoped to declare a new world war. 

His powers were largely derived from his experiments. He created the Chimera Technique, which let him use other shinobi’s kekkai genkai by fusing their bodies with his own. In order to increase the range of what he could replicate, he hoped to get his hands on the sharingan. His ability to use multiple kekkai genkai made him a versatile fighter, and his Puppet Curse let him control other people’s actions. He was ultimately defeated when he failed to replicate Naruto’s Wind Release: Rasenshuriken.

4. Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki – Boruto: Naruto the Movie

Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki - Boruto: Naruto the Movie

Like his foster son Momoshiki, Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki was considered an even more dangerous threat than Kaguya was. He could absorb other people’s ninjutsu and use the chakra to create glowing red weapons. He could also cloak himself in electricity, teleport using Space–Time Ninjutsu, and sense chakra from long distances. He had a Byakugan, and all of its associated moves. He could fight on par with Sasuke, and launch attacks even when he was on the verge of passing away. 

3. Menma Uzumaki – Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie

Menma Uzumaki - Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie

What if Naruto Uzumaki grew up with loving parents in a village that respected him? According to Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, he’d become a villain. Menma Uzumaki is the alternate reality version of Naruto. Despite a promising start to life, he became a missing-nin and started working for Tobi. He has the Black Nine Tails sealed into his body, which he can summon to help him fight. Because he doesn’t have any Eight Trigrams Seals, he has immediate access to the Black Nine Tails’ chakra, which helps him boost all of his moves. 

Other than that, he has dark versions of many of the ninjutsu abilities Naruto uses, such as Spiralling Ring, a Wind Release technique that resembles Rasengan. 

2. Toneri Otsutsuki – The Last: Naruto the Movie

Toneri Otsutsuki - The Last: Naruto the Movie

The Otsutsuki clan is one of the most powerful families in the Naruto-verse. While Toneri isn’t its most powerful member, he’s not exactly easy to deal with, either. He was born to the Otsutsuki branch family, and grew up isolated on the moon. Hoping to get revenge on humanity for turning chakra into a weapon, he decided to destroy the earth. That is, except for Hinata Hyuuga, who he hoped would become his wife. 

Thanks to his extreme power, he almost succeeded. Originally possessing a Byakugan, he developed a Tenseigan, which let him use all forms of nature release, as well as create Truth Seeking Balls and activate Tenseigan Chakra Mode. Using chakra, he creates a golden sword that’s capable of lopping the moon in half. 

1. Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki – Boruto: Naruto the Movie

Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki - Boruto: Naruto the Movie

Momoshiki is one of the few movie villains who actually plays a role in one of the main series – he’s also a villain in Boruto. But he first appeared in Boruto: Naruto the Movie. He’s a member of the Ōtsutsuki clan, and he sought to first figure out what happened to Kaguya and the God Tree, and then create a new God Tree out of Naruto’s chakra. He has a dizzying array of abilities, enough that he could easily destroy the entire world with very little effort. He has a Rinnegan, a Byakugan, the ability to use all forms of nature release, the ability to absorb others, and use their powers…the list goes on.

His one weakness was in taijutsu. Because he has so many powers, he sees very little reason to train himself for battle, and so he lacks the muscle strength and martial arts training to engage in combat. Much like Frieza from DBZ, the idea that he would have to do that to fight inferior beings is anathema to him.
