EMPATPAGI.COM- Sunagakure, also known as Sand Village, made its debut as a village containing antagonists in the early Naruto series. However, after Orochimaru's plan failed, they became Konoha's most trusted and reliable allies.
With a history of great fighting, especially in the past against the village of Konoha itself, Sand Village has produced many great ninjas to defend their village. Here we will discuss the 10 strongest shinobi from Sunagakure Village in the Naruto series.
10 Strongest Shinobi From The Sand Village, Ranked
Maki is a kunoichi from the village of Sunagakure who is very loyal to her village, she is also an admirer of Gaara, and she is a student of Pakura.
Maki's sealing-based jutsu is very important for the Allied Shinobi Forces against Edo Tensei's troops, and Maki is among the most proficient users of this jutsu.
Maki is very useful as ninja support for his stronger comrades. Nonetheless, Maki's specialties make him a unique and valuable asset to his village.
Baki was Gaara's mentor and had partnered with Orochimaru in his plans to overthrow Konoha. His Wind Blade is very useful when fighting opponents in close combat.
However, he has limited access to the use of jutsu weaponry. If an enemy fought him in battle and knew about Baki's strength from the start, it would be very easy to strategize and overcome Baki's resistance using jutsu such as shadow clones.
8. Lady Chiyo
Lady Chiyo is a very reliable puppeteer and he is personally responsible for teaching Sasori this ability. Her experience from the Second Shinobi War was phenomenal, she was able to manipulate Sakura's limbs to quickly recover from injuries and she was also able to defeat her grandson's deadly puppet army, Sasori.
Unfortunately, her age limited her abilities as a fighter. In addition, his puppets are paler than Sasori's and Kankuro's, because he keeps less weaponry than the two of them.
Pakura has died while in the Naruto series, he is the master of Combustion Release and also Maki's mentor. He is an experienced kunoichi ninja, himself responsible for eliminating and slaughtering dozens of Shinobi Alliance warriors, including veterans from the powerful Stone Village.
He can concentrate heat energy into balls or rays that can melt the opponent's body like butter. In addition, he possessed an extraordinary will so that he could resist the influence of the Edo Tensei jutsu and let his former student escape.
Kankuro is an experienced puppeteer and one of Gaara's most powerful and reliable fighters (due to their common lineage). All three of his puppets are perfectly capable of attacking and defending, Kankuro is able to move them at a speed that can disturb and destabilize his opponent.
His Salamander puppet is the main protective device to defend against long-range attacks. Meanwhile, the Black Ant and Crow puppets are meant to poison and stab their enemies.
Temari is Gaara's sister and she is currently the strongest ninja kunoichi in the village of Sunagakure. The upgraded fan is able to cut through the forest and can throw even the most powerful enemies, this was proven during his fight alongside Shikamaru against Tayuya.
In addition, the fan can be used to fly, and this makes Temari a valuable asset in reconnaissance missions as well as a reliable sneaker in dangerous situations.
Rasa is the Kazekage before Gaara and he is very proficient in using jutsu, similar to his son, Gaara. Rasa has the power of deadly golden sand which is very easy to shape into weapons. He was resurrected along with the other Kage in an attempt to fight against the combined Shinobi Allied Forces.
However, actually, his sand is not as strong as Gaara's sand and he also cannot maintain its shape automatically like Gaara's sand. During the great war, he suffered defeat during the fourth great shinobi war in the battle against Gaara.
Being the most iconic shinobi of the village of Sunagakure, Gaara is quite a frightening opponent to face. His legendary jutsu, "The Sand Coffin", creates a cocoon around his target that is almost impossible to avoid. Once the target is confined, Gaara will condense the sand particles, and quickly crush the enemy's body within the cocoon.
Even after he lost the Shukaku to Akatsuki, he still showed himself to be a formidable warrior throughout the Fourth Great Ninja War (especially with his victory against Rasa).
2. Third Kazekage
The Third Kazekage is often heralded as the strongest ninja in the village of Sunagakure. After learning Shukaku's powers, he was able to use magnetic dust and iron powder as his true strength.
He can create a form that is nearly impenetrable defense and far more deadly than the sand power of his successors. After he died, Orochimaru then stole his DNA to be resurrected with Edo Tensei in the future.
The Kazekage killer, Sasori, earned his nickname as "Red Sand" because of the many people he had killed. Although his achievements are limited due to his brief role in the story (as the first Akatsuki to die), the potential he has is extraordinary.
Apart from having more than a hundred puppets and an immortal body, he gave Kankuro the poison he made himself, and the poison had no antidote at all. Apart from that, he was very determined to kill Gaara, but he could not do that because Deidara was the one assigned to capture the Kazekage.
