Naruto: All Major Clans Explained

All Clans and Members in Naruto - YouTube

The Naruto Series consists of many powerful ninjas hailing from different clans, and each clan are unique to a certain level. For example, the uchiha clan are well known for their powerful dojutsu: Sharingan, but their love for fire style jutsu and lightening is something to be reckoned with.

So in this post i’m going to explain All major clans in the entire Naruto series with their kekkei genkai, this is not ranked:

13. Inuzuka Clan

The Inuzuka clan is one of the unique major clans out there, they are proficient warriors because of the bonded relationship they have with their dogs.

When an Inuzuka member comes a certain age, they are given their own dog(s) to raise. This becomes their constant companion for life, learning ninja skills and combo moves to become the best shinobi team they can be.

While Kiba is the Inuzuka member fans know best, his mother and sister are also powerful and respected shinobi. They helped resolve the Fourth shinobi war alongside all other ninja clans.

For their own strengths and their practical dog-breeding abilities, they are an important clan in their village.

12. Karatachi

When under the wrong circumstances, power and jinchuriki influence can make a monster out of anyone. During Kirigakure’s worst times, when children were forced to battle in bloody combat, Yagura Karatachi rose to power. Not only was he incredibly strong but also ruthless. With the Three-Tailed Beast in him, any opposing him rarely stood a chance. Though the Akatsuki ended his life, the ramifications of his actions rippled through the village for years.

Despite their disturbing darkness, the Karatachi are an undoubtedly powerful people.

11. Kurama Clan

Not all clan’s power levels are good, though. The Kurama clan is an otherwise unremarkable group, save the ninja born every few generations that is far more powerful than the rest of the clan combined. This gift (or curse) gives the ninja in question the ability to warp their world into complex illusions called genjutsu. They can even end a person’s life with illusions. Unfortunately, the drawback is that they will have little control over the ability, which can make emotional outbursts extremely dangerous. Even their mind acknowledges the power, oftentimes creating a secondary personality to regulate the ninja’s powers.

When Yakumo Kurama’s alter personality became malicious, she fatally wounded her parents and harmed several shinobi. No ninja should ever underestimate the most powerful Kurama clan members.

10. Yamanaka Clan

The Yamanaka clan consists of sensory ninjas with ability to Transfer their consciousness to another mind, communicate through telepathy and even sense chakra signatures over long distances. But this has a drawback as while their mind is another body, their users body become completely vulnerable to attacks.

Of all the Shika-Ino-Cho members, the Yamanaka clan is arguably the weakest. Not because they aren’t powerful, but because their abilities work best with a team and are harder to use without comrades around. After all, the user’s body is safer if their friends protect it while they possess an enemy ninja’s mind.

However, with a team, the Yamanaka powers can become an ace in the hole against unsuspecting foes.

9. Haruno

The Haruno family isn’t exactly what you will call a big clan of it’s own. The members of its family are too important not to mention. Both Kizashi and his daughter Sakura are powerful ninja that make great contributions to Konohagakure. In another life, Kizashi could have become Hokage. Meanwhile, Sakura became one of the strongest medical-ninja to ever exist, between her own chakra prowess and her teachings from Tsunade.

Furthermore, though her daughter classifies as an Uchiha, Sakura did raise an immensely powerful and intelligent ninja. Sarada doesn’t just impress because of her Uchiha blood, but also because of her Hurano discipline and intelligence.

Though the group doesn’t have many members, the Hurano line created enough of an impact to earn rank as a powerful clan.

8. Akimichi Clan

The Akimichi clan consists of powerful members who specialize in body expansion jutsus and they are well known for their inhuman strength. The Akimichi clan may act like jolly eating machines, but they rely on calories to power their ninja abilities.

In the early days of Naruto, Choji turned into the long-running fat joke, that kid who just likes eating. However, when part of the Konoha 11 go to retrieve Sasuke from the Sound 4, he shows he’s much more than just eating. Even better, his love for food is actually important to his strength.

Choji, his father, and his daughter Chocho (along with all their ancestors) use their caloric intake as fuel to give them impressive body-changing powers. Between contributing to the Shika-Ino-Cho triad and packing quite a punch, they are an impressive clan that deserves recognition.

7. Aburame Clan

Though the Aburame clan may make some people a little squeamish, no one can deny their power. With a symbiotic relationship to bugs, they can control mass swarms with a flick of their wrists. For an onlooker, that can be pretty overwhelming. During his time as a genin, Shino impressed others with his innate abilities and intelligence.

Having bug powers makes being a teacher even easier, too. Shino hardly struggles with keeping an eye on them.

Throughout Naruto, fans don’t get to learn nearly enough about the Aburame clan. However, from what they do know, they are intelligent ninja that pack quite a punch.

6. Nara Clan

The Nara clan are one of the most formidable clans that are not just well known but also respected for their high IQ and their Clan’s kekkei genkai: Shadow Paralysis Jutsu.

Not only are they proficient in shadow manipulation, but they also are strategic geniuses. Even at their laziest, they are always several steps ahead. Furthermore, they are apart of the famed Shika-Ino-Cho trio, a team that traverses several generations. Shikadai leads his, as did his father Shikamaru, and his father Shikaku.

Konoha wouldn’t be the same without their clan abilities. Tactical experts aren’t easy to come by in a world full of hot-heads. The Nara clan members are natural leaders who make the ninja around them all the better.

5. Uzumaki Clan

Fans could never discuss powerful clans without mentioning the iconic Uzumaki Clan. Not only did they lead to Naruto Uzumaki, Kurama’s host and the Seventh Hokage. This clan was known for not only their immense chakra reserves but also for being the infamous Nine-Tailed Fox’s jinchuriki. Their oldest known member, Mito Uzumaki, was the beautiful and impressive wife of Hashirama Senju. She was the first to save her city from Kurama, but not the last.

While the previous bold red hair may be extremely rare now, Naruto and Boruto carry the name proudly. They may not be Uchiha levels of overall power, but they’ve created some powerful ninja over the years that have changed Konoha for the better.

4. Hyuga Clan

Though the Hyuga clan starts off mysterious and vague, over time fans learn how truly powerful they can be. The Hyuga Clan specializes in chakra readings and they also possess the ability to release chakra at all points of their body allowing them to pinpoint to an enemy’s chakra point and block the flow.

When their clan power is so coveted that they curse most all family members, there’s genuine and fearsome power there. Neji showed off the damage even a young Hyuga can do during his time in the Chunin Exams. In the years afterwards, he and Hinata only continue to show off that strength.

While there are more powerful eyes out there, the Hyuga’s Byakugan succeeds as a catch-all ability that can make anyone a stronger healer, scout, combatant, and more. The Byakugan is not something to take lightly, as its versatility is invaluable. Every member of the family is intense and powerful in their own way.

3. Uchiha Clan

While fans can go on and on about the Naruto and Sasuke debate, there’s no debate when it comes to overall clan strength. The Sharingan alone gives them base abilities beyond most ninja. With that power comes an even more dangerous volatility, the Uchiha Curse. Their capacity for hatred is terrible.

Though they can become intimidatingly powerful, their best abilities come at a high cost. For example, the Mangekyo Sharingan is only activated by the user witnessing the passing of someone close to them. Worse, the eye only stabilizes by taking the eye of a fellow Uchiha. Horrible, huh?

Despite this, they still have the greatest capacity for power, making them one of the strongest clans in Naruto.

2. Senju Clan

When the first Hokage hails from a certain clan, of course, that family will be very powerful. Before Konoha was created, the area had two particular warring clans: The Senju and the Uchiha.  Haunted by losing family members to war and in-fighting, Hashirama Senju decided to create a village where ninja could learn and live in peace.

As direct descendants of Asura Otsutsuki, they control one of the purest bloodlines to the source of ninja abilities. Specializing in wood release, healing, and possessing massive chakra reserves, they are an impressive family. Both the First, Second and Fifth Hokage were of Senju blood. Not only do they have inherent powers, but they have honor and dedication that makes them even stronger.

1. Otsustuki Clan

The Otsustuki clan are the most powerful clan in the entire naruto series, consisting of members with abilities to descimate planets, alter reality, time-travel and so on, they are the most feared clan of all time.

A long time ago, Kaguya Otsutsuki came to earth to devour the planet. Instead, she fell in love with a human. Though the planet ultimately did not suit her, her children passed on the ninja abilities that would become commonplace centuries later.

As the literal birth-family of ninja, the Otsutsuki clan are powerful. While they can be outmaneuvered and outnumbered, their raw power is unmatched. They may not have some of the powerful Kekkei Genkai of other clans, mutated over time, but they are still the source. Any member of this clan is a fierce foe. All ninja should fear their natural prowess in battle.
