In the Naruto anime, Madara Uchiha is considered one of the strongest characters, but not the most powerful. Then comes the question: Who can beat Madara Uchiha? Well, there are very few characters in the Naruto anime who can beat Madara Uchiha.
Madara Uchiha was one of the founders of Konohagakure along with Hashirama Senju. In this article, I will mention a few characters who can beat Madara Uchiha.
During his era, no one was able to even touch Madara Uchiha except Hashirama Senju. However, if the entire anime series is considered, there are a few more characters who can beat Madara Uchiha. First, let me mention Hashirama Senju.
Top Anime Heroes and Villians who can beat Madara Uchiha
Hashirama Senju was the first Hokage of the Village Hidden in the Leaves. He was also known as the God of Shinobi. Both Madara and Hashirama were very good friends during their childhood. However, their friendship turned into bitterness and they became enemies. They were from two different elite clans of the leaf, hired by two different groups during riots which led to a fight between Madara and Hashirama’s clans. This fight continued even during their normal days.
Both Madara and Hashirama fought each other many times, and each time it ended in a draw. Madara was a very skilled shinobi with a firm grip over the Sharingan. On the other hand, Hashirama was calm and strong, with a good command over Wood Style and healing jutsu. He was so skilled in healing techniques that he could heal himself without weaving hand signs. All the duels between Hashirama and Madara turned into stalemates until one day when Hashirama emerged triumphant. The fight occurred at a place called the “Valley of Death.” Although it was initially shown that Madara was dead, later in the anime, it was revealed that Madara was alive thanks to Izanagi. Apart from Hashirama Senju, no one was able to lay a finger on Madara Uchiha.
Now, if we talk about the overall anime verse, in the Naruto anime, a few characters appeared who possessed the ability to beat Madara Uchiha. This was proven in the Fourth Great Ninja War when Madara was reanimated by Kabuto. Reanimated Madara was much stronger than the Madara who was alive during his era. Below, I will mention some characters who could beat Madara Uchiha.
Naruto Uzumaki is the main character of the series. During his childhood, he was initially weak but worked hard to become the strongest person in the shinobi world. As Naruto gained control over the Nine-Tailed Fox, he became exceptionally strong. He learned many techniques that allowed him to compete with any character. Due to his large chakra reservoir, Naruto was able to maintain battles for extended durations. As shown during the Fourth Great Ninja War, Naruto was able to share his chakra with almost ten thousand shinobi. Naruto also defeated Madara Uchiha and the goddess Kaguya Otsutsuki. So, considering his achievements, there is no way that Madara can beat Naruto Uzumaki.
After Itachi slaughtered his clan to prevent a major disaster, Sasuke, the sole survivor, became obsessed with the power to kill Itachi. Abandoning his friends and village, Sasuke went to Orochimaru to become stronger, receiving a curse mark that granted him tremendous power. Sasuke eventually killed his brother, and before dying, Itachi implanted his own eyes in Sasuke. Sasuke obtained the Mangekyo Sharingan and later awakened his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan (EMS). In the anime, Sasuke could use fatal techniques like Amaterasu and change dimensions thanks to his Rinnegan. Sasuke Uchiha is a good match for Madara Uchiha. Undoubtedly, the fight would be prolonged, but in the end, Sasuke would emerge victorious, given his numerous skills and abilities.
Kaguya Otsutsuki is a Goddess. She is so strong that it took the most powerful characters to beat her. Kaguya Otsutsuki was able to absorb the Amaterasu of Sasuke Uchiha. She was literally a beast, possessing so much power and skill that she could revive herself. Kaguya Otsutsuki had the potential to defeat any character in the verse. It’s just that Naruto often got help from Sasuke to fight Kaguya. She had all the abilities to defend herself from a variety of attacks. Madara Uchiha is surely an easy task for her. No technique of Madara Uchiha would help him stand a chance against Kaguya Otsutsuki.
No doubt, Madara Uchiha is very strong and has fought tons of shinobi with merely a handful of allies, but all those allies were very powerful too. Madara Uchiha is undoubtedly one of the cool characters, and many love him because of his speech and style.
