New Narutop Poll Decides Naruto Series’ Best Battle

Naruto Best Battle

The voting for Narutop 99, the Naruto 20th Anniversary Character Popularity Poll, ended. While the overall results are being counted, the official Naruto website opened another special poll allowing fans to decide the Naruto series’ best battles.

The campaign, which called “Naruto Best Bout,” will run from March 13-24, 2023. The voting page lists a number of the most iconic duels across the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime series. It doesn’t appear to include any anime-original fights and also seems to be largely focused on one-on-one duels, with one exception.

Here are the current contenders for the Naruto best battle title Narutop poll.

Note: The list below may contain minor spoilers for events in the Naruto anime and manga.

  • Rock Lee vs. Gaara during the Chunin Exams arc.
  • Neji Hyuga vs. Kidomaru during the Sasuke Retrieval arc.
  • Sakura Haruno and Chiyo vs. Sasori during the Kazekage Rescue arc.
  • Sasuke Uchiha vs. Deidara during the Master’s Prophecy and Vengeance arc.
  • Sasuke Uchiha vs. Itachi Uchiha during the Master’s Prophecy and Vengeance arc
  • Naruto Uzumaki vs. Pain during the Two Saviors arc.
  • Minato Namikaze vs. The Masked Man during the Nine-Tails Taming and Karmic Encounters arc.
  • Kakashi Hatake vs. Obito Uchiha during The Great Ninja War: Obito Uchiha arc.
  • Might Guy vs. Madara Uchiha during the Infinite Tsukuyomi: The Invocation arc.
  • Naruto Uzumaki vs. Sasuke Uchiha during the Naruto and Sasuke arc.

You’ll need a Twitter account to vote, and can do so by visiting the official Narutop99 website. Click on the banner below your selection to cast a vote.  Like the main poll, you can vote once per day during the campaign period.

Naruto and Naruto Shippuden are available to stream on various platforms. Its successor series, Boruto, will end “Part 1” of its story in March 2023.
