Most Popular Shinobi in Naruto: Minato Namikaze
The Naruto global voting has been going on for three months now. With the voting polls officially over, the results in many categories are coming in. In this text, we’ll cover some of the categories, such as Most popular shinobi in Naruto, Best Master, and Best Classmate.
Who is the most popular Shinobi in Naruto? Preliminary Voting Results
While the official results about the most popular Shinobi are coming on April 23rd, the preliminary votes are available on Naruto’s official website. Therefore, we can all take a look at the current state of votes.
Firstly, here are some of the best-ranked nominees so far. The current top 3 are Minato Namikaze, Itachi Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno. In this order, Minato Namikaze is currently winning as the most popular Shinobi. Moreover, many also consider him one of the most powerful ninjas in Naruto.
In addition to these top 3, we have other high-ranking characters. For example, these include Naruto Uzumaki, Jiraiya, Kakashi Hatake, Sakumo Hatake, Shisui Uchiha, Sasuke Uchiha, and Madara Uchiha. These are the top 10 most popular Shinobi currently.
This vote is very important in the Naruto community. During the Jump Festa 2023, the Naruto panelists disclosed important info about the mysterious manga sequels and spin-offs. Namely, the one who wins in this category will get their own manga.
Therefore, this means we’re getting a new manga all about Minato Namikaze! I can’t wait to see more information about him. If you’re curious to find out about other voting categories, we also covered it. For example, you can check out what is the best battle in Naruto!
Whose Apprentice Would You Be in Naruto?
This particular category sort of announces who is the best master in all Naruto series. Minato Namikaze, Kakashi Hatake, Jiraiya, Might Guy, and Asuma Sarutobi were the main nominees in this category.
Therefore, after 173k votes collected from around the globe, Minato Namikaze won in this category as well! He also currently holds the first spot in the voting for the most popular Shinobi. Despite not having a lot of screen time in Naruto, the moments in which we do see Minato Namikaze left a long-lasting (and heartbreaking) impression on us.
In addition to Minato, one of the contestants was Kakashi Hatake. As one of Konoha’s leaders, Kakashi stands out as one of the most important characters in Naruto. However, many fans are wondering why Iruka sensei was not nominated. As he’s the one who taught Naruto about friendship, love, and sacrifice, I’d gladly have him as my master!
