    At the very beginning of the series, it is very clearly stated that Sasuke was stronger than Naruto. We also saw that Sasuke was pretty good at Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and chakra control. Naruto at this point only knew shadow clones whereas, Sasuke is very skilled and at the top of his class.

    The only way Naruto defeats Sasuke is if he uses 1000 shadow clones (which he doesn’t every time) or gets the Nine tails to cloak from Kurama. Base Sasuke is stronger than Base Naruto.

    This is during the 2nd round of the chunin exams when Sasuke mastered Chidori and Naruto learned summoning Jutsu.

    This again is pretty one-sided as Sasuke got a huge power up after training with Kakashi. Sasuke mastered change in chakra nature, increased his speed, and also perfected his Taijutsu. Sasuke was fast enough to hit Gaara which means his speed reached Rock Lee’s level. Sasuke’s speed with the Sharingan and Chidori is a one-shot combo. In base, Sasuke is stronger than Naruto.

    But if Naruto summons Gamabunta then there is nothing Sasuke can do against him.

    Who is Stronger Naruto or Sasuke 4

    Sasuke after coming out from the Curse Mark barrel had a massive upgrade as in his base, he was hitting Naruto without much difficulty. Sasuke without using his Sharingan he was winning the fight. Curse Mark Sasuke is stronger than Base Naruto.

    The real battle would be one tail cloak Naruto vs Curse Mark 2 Sasuke. CM2 Sasuke is slightly stronger than Cloak Naruto as the Curse Mark has merged to Sasuke’s chakra and he has a bigger buff than Naruto. The Chidori and Rasengan clash proved it as their attacks canceled each other and Naruto was left unconscious whereas Sasuke was still standing.

    This can go either way. They both are known to be equal at this stage. It totally depends on their physical condition and their performance on a particular day.

    For example, Sasuke after fighting the five Kage and killing Danzo was extremely drained and exhausted. At this point if Naruto and Sasuke would’ve fought and if Naruto had gone into Sage Mode, then he would have defeated Sasuke.

    But Sasuke when he faced the five Kage was fresh and ready to fight. At that point, he would probably draw or maybe defeat Naruto. So, let’s consider them equal.


    • KCM 1 Naruto vs MS Sasuke

    KCM 1 Naruto takes this fight medium difficulty. Sasuke hasn’t got much against him.

    Naruto is faster than the Raikage, which means he is fast enough to dodge Amaterasu, Anton-Kagatsuchi, Chidori very easily.

    Naruto’s planetary Rasengan and Rasenshuriken can crack or damage Sasuke’s imperfect Susanoo.

    The only thing Sasuke has is Genjutsu. And Naruto is not stupid enough to get trapped in it.

    Sasuke is outmatched in pace, strength, and durability. KCM1 Naruto’s feats against previous Kage, Edo Nagato, and Edo Itachi are great showcases of how strong Naruto became.


    • KCM 1 Naruto vs EMS Sasuke

    Who is Stronger Naruto or Sasuke 8

    Sasuke in EMS is above Kage level. Every single drawback he had with MS is simply nullified.

    He can spam as much Amaterasu as he wants and use Susanoo countless times without being exhausted or blinding himself.

    He’s faster, more eloquent, durable, basically, every ability of his is highly enhanced.

    Although Sasuke’s Susanoo is not as big as Madara in EMS. It is still known as a proper Susanoo. Naruto can’t do much against his Susanoo especially if he combines Inferno style. EMS Sasuke is stronger.


    • KCM 2 Naruto vs EMS Sasuke

    Here clearly Naruto has surpassed him. Naruto basically has an Infinite chakra, which is faster than KCM1, the durability of Naruto has highly increased as well. In other words, all of his previous abilities are highly enhanced.

    Naruto’s tailed beast bomb alone was able to equal tailed beast bomb of five tailed beasts combined.

    Naruto has infinite chakra and was casually giving chakra to the shinobi alliance and still taking on the ten tails.

    Naruto can go into Sage Mode while in Tailed beast state. This gives him another huge power up and enhances his arsenal with Nature’s energy and sensory abilities.

    Naruto is durable enough to tank a tailed beast bomb, and also Kirin. Kurama also has the ability to heal him quickly.

    Sasuke cannot use Genjutsu on him also now that he’s befriended Kurama.

    This is actually a clear answer that Six Paths Naruto is Stronger than Six Paths Sasuke.

    Naruto at the beginning of the fight wasn’t trying to kill Sasuke and was holding back, whereas Sasuke was intending to kill Naruto.

    Six Paths Naruto would’ve won the fight against Sasuke if he was really going for the kill. Sasuke himself said that if Naruto doesn’t get serious then he will be killed.

    It is further visible that Sasuke had to use the chakra of all the Tailed Beast to create Indra’s Arrow whereas Naruto created Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken just by using Nature’s energy and his own chakra which equaled Sasuke’s attack.

    Near the end, Sasuke uses Chidori amped with Anton Kagatsuchi and goes to Naruto whereas, Naruto uses Base Rasengan and still equals Sasuke’s Kagutsuchi.

    Six Paths Naruto is stronger than Six Paths Sasuke.
