This Naruto Top 99 character poll kicked off back in December 2022. In the time since, updates appeared letting people know how characters were doing as time went by. For example, there was a top 50 midterm results announcement in January 2023. At that time, Minato, Itachi, and Sakura still held the top three spots. Along the way, smaller polls also came up that allowed people to vote on things like best fights in the series.
