As a Naruto-verse character, Hashirama is among the most formidable. Hashirama was a natural-born warrior, despite many disputes. He could use all five of Nature's releases, and he was incredibly fortunate to have the wood release at his disposal. In addition, Hashirama possesses the sage mode, which further enhances his chakra and strength.

He was called the "God of Shinobi" because of his immense strength. The fact that Madara wasn't able to defeat him is mind-boggling. Despite this, several formidable shinobis have subsequently emerged, and there are 12 such characters in Naruto-verse who might hold their own in a fight with Hashirama. However, there is no way to know the exact outcome without a decisive battle.

Note: This list is not exhaustive and solely reflects the author's opinion.


15 Naruto characters who might give a tough time to Hashirama

15) Eight Gates Might Guy

Because he was a taijutsu expert who could open all Eight Gates, only a few taijutsu practitioners could match Might Guy's abilities. While fighting Kisame, Guy unlocked the first seven gates, enveloping him in a blue aura and giving him the ability to execute the Daytime Tiger. This strong punch generates a concentrated pocket of air.

Guy almost killed Madara Uchiha when he opened the last gate, making him essentially invincible.


14) Sasuke

With the Six Paths Chakra (Yin), Sasuke became among the show's strongest characters. When it comes to Naruto characters, Sasuke is regarded as one of the strongest. Sasuke was born a shinobi prodigy, and he has since become one of the strongest ninjas in the world.

The final power-up, the Six Paths Yin, gave Sasuke the strength to take on the celestial figures in the tale during the Fourth Ninja War. Few characters have a chance against him in a fight, and even fewer can triumph over him.


13) Naruto

There are only a few other modes in the Naruto series that can compare in strength to Naruto's Six Paths Mode. A blind Madara hopelessly outmatched him despite using the Nine-Tails and other Tailed Beasts to put things in perspective. However, the Six Paths Sage Mode allowed Naruto to overcome the much more powerful Madara on several occasions.

To prove his mettle, Naruto used the might of Six Paths against an even more formidable opponent, Kaguya Otsutsuki. Naruto managed to hold his own on many occasions despite his lack of mastery over all of his abilities.


12) Ten Tails Obito

Obito's talents as a genin were mediocre at best, and he struggled to keep up with his fellow students from the Academy. Seizing every opportunity, he put in long hours of training to become the best he could be.

After acquiring the prowess of a Ten-Tails, to put it simply, Obito became more potent than even Hashirama Senju. He was able to battle three great Hokage with ease, overpowering Sasuke and Naruto several times and demolishing the entire Allied Shinobi Forces.


11) Ten-Tails Madara

One of Naruto's most powerful characters, Madara Uchiha, was already a savage during the Warring Period. When he was resurrected as the Ten-Tails Jinchuriki during the Fourth Ninja War, he gained ten times his original strength.

Obito Uchiha's power as a Jinchuriki pales in comparison to Madara's. The deadly torrent of strikes from Might Guy wouldn't hurt him either. On top of all this, Madara could fight both Naruto and Sasuke simultaneously.


10) Hamura

A legendary hero in Naruto-verse, Hamura and his brother fought off the Ten-Tails in an epic fight. In combat, Hamura used a sword and a shakujo, which he probably knew how to operate proficiently. Also, his mother's chakra was said to have been passed down to him.

Like his brother, Hamura was able to communicate with people and bestow power onto them even after his death, utilizing his chakra to materialize his form even hundreds of years later.


9) Kaguya

As the Ten-Tails' jinchriki, Kaguya's chakra stores and power were recognized as stronger than Madara's after consuming the fruit of the God Tree. Hamura was subdued in the anime by a simple discharge of her chakra, which caused tremendous shockwaves.

She can absorb whatever technique she comes across since she was the first individual to use chakra. Kaguya is strong enough to stop the enemy's motion while also draining their chakra at the point of contact. She obtained chakra from the Infinite Tsukuyomi's tethered victims to strengthen herself.


8) Momoshiki

His ability to combat Naruto and Sasuke, who used the Six Paths Chakra, was boosted when he absorbed Kinshiki's power. He was able to take down four Kage at once with ease. As an Otsutsuki, he was endowed with superhuman chakra and the capability to glide.

Momoshiki could employ space-time ninjutsu to teleport himself across realities at the expense of a considerable quantity of chakra from consuming numerous pills. Momoshiki's spirit, like Hagoromo's, is very potent, allowing it to interact with the human world for some time after death.


7) Hagoromo

Hagoromo, a son of Kaguya, was born with a robust and abundant chakra supply, which was reflected in the natural development of his dojutsu, including the Yin–Yang Release. The first to grasp its nature, he was the first to be born with chakra.

Despite his lack of prior training, he demonstrated an innate and exact command of its power, not requiring hand seals for any of his feats and demonstrating a wide range of abilities in its application, including the transference of Chakra. After he became the first jinchuriki in history to possess the enormous power of the Ten-Tails, his reserves multiplied rapidly.


6) Kashin Koji

The genetic code of none other than Jiraya was used to construct Kashin Koji, an artificial human made by Dr. Amado Sanzu, a former scientist for Kara. Amado repurposed Kashin's body into a combat-focused living scientific ninja tool by utilising advanced Otsutsuki technology.

Koji is strong enough to maintain his ground against Jigen and defeat him one-on-one with little difficulty. He was able to defeat Jigen and even compete with an entirely revived Isshiki when in Sage Mode. At this point, Kashin Koji is undoubtedly capable of fighting Hamshirama head-to-head without breaking a sweat.


5) Isshiki

Isshiki is a crucial figure in the Naruto universe and among the most prominent characters in the franchise's narratives. Isshiki, being an Otsutsuki, has godlike abilities that a few characters can only equal in the series. Logically, the strongest character will have the most tremendous power in the series.

As the narrative shows, Isshiki Otsutsuki's best attribute was his discerning eye. When he used the Sukunahikona technique, he was able to activate chakra rods and condense them. Additionally, Isshiki had access to a realm in which time was stagnant.


4) Daemon

Daemon, Eida's younger brother, is a new opponent added to the series. Amado created him as a living scientific tool, and although he has the appearance of a child, he actually has a lethal hidden weapon under his sleeve. Daemon is not a skilled fighter, but he is able to block and reflect any strike that is directed at him.

With this ability, Daemon is able to redirect any assault, even if it is not visible to him, and instantly destroy his adversaries. It won't be simple for someone like Hashirama to fight Daemon, especially since Amado said that he was stronger than even Jigen.


3) Eida

Eida is a recent addition to the story and is another enemy like Daemon. She poses a considerably greater threat to Hashirama because she is also a living scientific ninja instrument developed by Dr. Amado Sanzu and is thought to be stronger and more capable than Jigen.

Eida is also particularly challenging to defeat in battle, especially given that she has the ability to make anyone fall in love with her.

She has the power to be incredibly dangerous for anyone to handle since the people she enchants lose all control over themselves and submit to her demands. It goes without saying that during the conflict, the god of Shinobi might fall for Eida.


2) Code

Right now, Code may be regarded as the series' strongest character. He was similarly marked with a karma by Jigen as was Boruto. One of the candidates to serve as Jigen's vessel was Code, but he ultimately failed and accrued white karma. However, this oddity made him far stronger than even Jigen.

As a result, Code had limiters put in place on his body, which Dr. Amado finally had taken out in the most recent installment of the series. His power will continue to increase over time and eventually might surpass that of Isshiki.

Code can now easily defeat characters like Hashirama because he is stronger than any other character still alive.


1) Shibai Otsutsuki

Shibai Otsutsuki might be the strongest Otsutsuki clan member to make a major appearance in the Naruto universe. Amado Sanzu himself mentioned the character in a recent manga chapter that gave it to the readers for the first time. He claimed that Shibai had long since existed and had eaten several chakra fruits.

His strength eventually grew to the point where he attained divinity. Many people think he is dead, but it's likely that, like Kaguya, he has ascended to another plane of existence and is getting ready to make a big entry in the series.


In summation

The characters stated above can also be regarded as the series' strongest characters, but it's crucial to remember that series like Naruto will always feature a large cast of individuals with skills that could make Hashirama seem like a thing of the past. However, Hashirama is referred to as the god of shinobi for a reason, so who knows what kind of trick he might be able to perform if he actually faces off against these charcaters.
