I have been a great fan of Naruto for a long time, And I have seen lot of animals being summoned. But its been very hard for me to think which one of the summoning is the most powerful?

Please provide manga episode number or anime. I would like to check it again.

    How do you define 'most powerful'? this looks like it could be opinion-based – Toshinou Kyouko Nov 19 '15 at 11:48

Okay, first thing first, I personally don't want to include summons from Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation Technique in my list, because you know, hundreds of dead peoples were summoned by this technique. One more thing, Tailed Beasts are not included in my list. Why? Summoned beasts are generally animals bonded with a ninja. As ninjas can summon beasts they are sealed with, the beasts can also summon ninjas. If we look at tailed beasts the are not animals, they are pure form of chakra, they are immensely powerful and hard to summon and bond with. This makes them not in the Top 5 list.

What makes it Top 1: Possesses great strength. The Demonic Statue can emit phantom dragons formed out of absorption chakra, which are capable of extracting the chakra of anyone they come in contact with. Most important, the Demonic Statue is also capable of emitting chakra chains from its mouth, which binds the power of tailed beasts, and can be used to both extract them from their jinchūriki and quickly seal them inside the statue.

  • I am not satisfied with your analysis, even if you state it like that Hanzō single handedly won over Jiraiya, Tsunade and Orochimaru with salamander. – Ankit Sharma Nov 19 '15 at 13:20
  • @AnkitSharma Yes, Hanzō's signature summon, Ibuse is indeed strong. Ibuse has great amount of strength, and is able to release poison mist from its mouth, making victim's body entirely numb, eventually fatal. But the fatal weakness of Ibuse is it's slow, and obtuse. Each summons of Sannin is agile and fast, except Katsuyu. Though she is slow, but she can still regenerate by consuming Tsunade's chakra even though she inhaled the poison gas. – Happy Face Nov 19 '15 at 13:48
  • I guess the demonic statue of the outer path aka ten tails husk should also be a chakra (as you mentioned that tailed beasts are chakra themselves). So, it should not be an animal itself. – berserk Nov 21 '15 at 6:51

As tailed beasts can be summoned too, I believe the most powerful summoning animal will be the ten tails.
