Have you ever wondered who the strongest Edo Tensei user is in the Naruto series? Edo Tensei is a forbidden jutsu that can revive the dead by sacrificing a living being. In the series, there were three official users of Edo Tensei, each with their unique characteristics. Let’s rank these users from the least to the most potent Edo Tensei user.
3. Tobirama Senju
Tobirama Senju, the creator of the Edo Tensei jutsu, was not the most potent user of this jutsu. He only created it but didn’t perfect it. As explained in the Naruto series, he used it for a suicide squad in the war era with explosive tags. The people he revived were also likely victims of Konoha and would never fight if revived.
2. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto Yakushi, one of the villains in the Naruto series, was responsible for using his Edo Tensei in the Fourth Ninja World War. He developed the jutsu version used by Orochimaru in the first part of Naruto, enhancing its power almost to its original. However, the bonds he used were stronger than Orochimaru’s first version but could still be canceled by some Edo Tensei.
Currently, the strongest Edo Tensei made by the most potent technique was the fourth Hokage, created by Orochimaru. Kabuto couldn’t complete the army he wanted for the war since he didn’t know the secrets of Shiki Fujin and Uzumaki’s ritual to call and release souls from Shiki Fujin’s stomach. Orochimaru, on the other hand, knew about it and could summon all four Hokage at once, something Kabuto couldn’t do, making him the most potent user of Edo Tensei.
Orochimaru also created a sacrificial body of Edo Tensei using White Zetsu, which uses Hashirama cells, making the Edo Tensei much stronger. However, at the same time, the bond used by the Edo Tensei’s user is much stronger. No user, not even Tobirama, who invented it, could break free from it. Only Hashirama can break free from this bond.
So, there you have it – the ranking of the three official Edo Tensei users in Naruto. While all users have their strengths and weaknesses, Orochimaru emerges as the most potent user of Edo Tensei, followed by Kabuto Yakushi and Tobirama Senju.
