Sakura Haruno is one of the main characters in Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto series. These are the characters she can (& can't) beat.
Sakura Haruno is one of the main characters in Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto series. As a member of Team 7, she's become one of the strongest Kunoichi over the years, if not the strongest.
Along with being a splendid fighter, Sakura also excels in Medical Ninjutsu and is known to be the best medical ninja in the entire world. By adulthood, she's become an extremely capable Kunoichi only a few can hold their own against. Here are 5 Naruto characters who you didn't know Sakura could defeat and 5 others who she stands no chance against.
10. Could Defeat: Tsunade Senju
Tsunade and Sakura are quite similar when it comes to their fighting style. They possess monstrous strength and a mind-blowing regeneration factor, allowing them to fight against almost anyone.
However, while Tsunade's body gets old after unleashing the powers of the Byakugou, Sakura's doesn't. During the Fourth Great Ninja War, Tsunade herself admitted that Sakura had surpassed her as a ninja which is enough proof that the latter is stronger.
9. Stands No Chance Against: Itachi Uchiha
Itachi was an Uchiha prodigy whose skills were far beyond the level of the Legendary Sannin. His control over the Mangekyo Sharingan was immaculate and even his physical prowess was nothing to take lightly.
Most fights that Itachi was in ended before the opponent had even realized it. Strong as Sakura is, Itachi would've been able to defeat her within a matter of seconds with the abilities of Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi.
8. Could Defeat: Shikamaru Nara
Shikamaru Nara is one of the smartest known characters in the world of Naruto. Although he lacks the physical strength to overpower his opponents, makes up for it with his countless strategies.
Smart as he is, Shikamaru's strongest techniques are known to struggle against opponents who are way too powerful. With the gap in physical strength between Shikamaru and Sakura being too vast, it isn't hard to see why Shikamaru would lose.
7. Stands No Chance Against: Naruto Uzumaki
Naruto Uzumaki is the Seventh Hokage of Konohagakure and the strongest shinobi in the entire world. Being the Jinchūriki of Kurama and having the chakra of all the other Tailed Beasts, Naruto is as strong as a Ten-tails Jinchūriki.
On top of everything, he received Six Paths powers from Hagoromo Otsutsuki, making him stronger than most Naruto characters. Someone like Sakura stands absolutely no chance against him in combat.
6. Could Defeat: Ino Yamanaka
One of the best sensory ninjas in Naruto, Ino is a member of the Yamanaka clan of Konohagakure. Being a member of Team 10, Ino is well-versed in dealing with enemies who are stronger than her through strategizing alone.
However, Sakura is not only far stronger than Ino but also knows her way of fighting extremely well. Anything Ino would throw her way would be useless in their fight.
5. Stands No Chance Against: Minato Namikaze
Renowned as the Yellow Flash, Minato Namikaze was the Fourth Hokage of Konohagakure. According to Jiraiya, he was shinobi whose skills couldn't be matched by any other.
Minato was quite a menace in combat and few could keep up with him. Strong as Sakura is, she doesn't have what it takes to deal with Minato Namikaze's blistering sped and destructive powers.
4. Could Defeat: Hinata Hyuga
Hinata was once a member of Team 8, led by Kurenai Yuhi. Being a member of the Hyuga clan, Hinata is highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat. Her skills with Gentle Fist were immense, thanks to receiving training from Neji.
When compared to Sakura, however, Hinata doesn't fare too well, primarily due to Sakura's ability to regenerate from any damage using the Byakugou. In return, one clean hit from Sakura would be enough to defeat Hinata.
3. Stands No Chance Against: Sasuke Uchiha
Like Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke is one of the strongest characters in the world of Naruto. He possesses the powers of the Mangekyo Sharingan along with the Rinnegan.
Sasuke is strong enough to fight against the likes of Madara Uchiha and Kaguya Otsutsuki without much trouble. For him, fighting and defeating Sakura would be a piece of cake.
2. Could Defeat: Hanabi Hyuga
Hanabi Hyuga is the heiress to the Hyuga clan of Konohagakure and Hinata's sister. As a kid, Hinata was known to have potential comparable to Neji Hyuga, which just goes to show how talented she is.
As an adult, Hanabi is said to be a master of the Byakugan and the Gentle Fist. However, her skills as a Kunoichi pale in comparison to Sakura Haruno. For Sakura, defeating Hanabi wouldn't be all that difficult.
1. Stands No Chance Against: Kaguya Otsutsuki
Kaguya is the strongest known character in the Narutoverse. Belonging to the mysterious Otsutsuki clan, Kaguya came to Earth a long time ago and consumed the chakra fruit of the God Tree, gaining immense powers.
Her abilities allow her to destroy planets with ease. She was also able to overwhelm both Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha in combat at the same time. Sakura stands absolutely no chance against her in a fight.
