  • When Team 7 reunites, Hashirama notes that Sakura has surpassed Tsunade. So you would think that that meant that Sakura > Tsunade. But a lot of people have pointed out to me that the last time Hashirama saw Tsunade she was only 3 years old. So really all that means is that Sakura was more powerful than a 3 year old Tsunade (or at least only more powerful than Hashirama's vague guess of how strong an adult Tsunade would be). Does their logic make sense or not ?

    • I feel like it was a statement made BY Kishimoto THROUGH Hashiram FOR Sakura.

      I think Kishi wanted to push Sakura past Tsunade and used Hashi as the mouthpiece to communicate with the audience

    • Both of them has the same moveset,techniques (tsunade has a sealing type ninjutsu, sakura doesnt)...tsunade just has more experience. ;_; (correct me if im wrong)

    • Yes. If not, they're equals.

      Sakura easily caught up with her senpai Shizune, and even her master Tsunade, in the span of 3 years. She is as knowledgeable and as skilled as them in the field of medicine. The only difference is that Tsunade has much more experience than her (obviously, since she's older).

      Hashirama said that Sakura's strength might be even greater than Tsunade's. This is a very impressive feat, considering that Tsunade has both naturally monstrous strength AND chakra enchanced strength. Sakura doesn't have the monster strength that Tsunade naturally has. This really just proves Sakura's talent in chakra control.

      Edit: I don't really know about the "But a lot of people have pointed out to me that the last time Hashirama saw Tsunade she was only 3 years old." part. How true is this? But still, Sakura's accomplishments in catching up with the current Tsunade isn't a joke.

    • Sakura already proved her medical skills to be on par with Tsunades

      In that scene where Hashirama says she is stronger than Tsunade, Shizune does not object. Sakura goes on to note that she doesnt have to use any of her Byakugo to look younger, so she is more efficient.

      If you look in the final fight witg Kaguya, Sakura punched off her horn, which is basically the equivilent of a bone, something neither Sasuke nor SPSM Naruto could do. Tsunade at best, was breaking Madara's humanoid Susanoo

    • I think tsunade still had experience and more chakra reserve as a senju over Sakura. If Sakura has not surpassed tsunade then at least she is her equal in chakra strength and medical skill. She was said to have one of the best chakra control since the start of Naruto. Lol and people say Hinata could beat Sakura, she would get oneshot by Sakura.

    • Sakura would win in a battle against Hinata mainly thanks to her summoning...but both of them can one shot each other.

    • Sakura was in Tsunade’s league in the 4th war. By adulthood she must have surpassed her. Also Hinata isn’t oneshotting anyone...

        Loading editor
    • She surpassed Tsunade by becoming a mother? And why won't a hyuga one shot someone as sakura? when a little kid did so to Naruto who has way more chakra than Sakura.

        Loading editor
    • Sakura had shown she surpassed Tsunade's strength at the end of the Kaguya fight. Her medical skills are, at minimum, equal to Tsunade's

      Chakra reserves are irrelevent to the Hyuuga. Himawari hit Naruto out of pure luck and some confusion on Naruto's part.

      Sakura vs Hinata is all about who lands the first hit. Considering Sakuras style is all about tanking hits she is more likely to be hit 1st. but it can go either way.

    • Oh, ok. So, a 3 year old kid “oneshotted” Hokage Naruto, but Neji didn’t oneshot genin Naruto in 100 attempts. So 3 year old Himawari >>>>> Neji, right? And Momoshiki also hit Naruto’s chakra points a lot and didn’t one shot him. So Kid Himawari >>> Momoshiki, right? In a serious fight Hinata wouldn’t oneshot somebody like Sakura...Hinata is not even in Sakura’s league.

        Loading editor
    • Wasn't Himmawari's shot more a fluke?
      Current Sakura should be at least as strong as Tsunade in my opinion (even Stronger). Also If I recall correctly Sakura has never fought an enemy of Momoshiki caliber and survived? She was gonna die against Shin in after fighting for like 3 minutes in Anime. Isn't that plus for Hinata?

        Loading editor
    • Hinata can't oneshot anyone, Sakura has the yin seal in her forehead,which can supply extra chakra to reactivate the points just like kurama did to Naruto when neji blocked all his chakra points. Hinata doesn't have the power to block someone's chakra in a single shot, she can use 64 technique, but she doesn't have the speed to do so at least against sakura. The only thing she said technique on was that small mini ten tail creature while Sakura destroyed a bunch one em in a single punch.

      Yes Himawaris hit was a fluke

      Sakura probably wouldnt beat a Momoshiki level opponant but she can get a few good hits

      Sakura was using her basic abilities against Shin, and Sasuke was pretty sure she was gonna kick his shit in.

      There is a time lag when you try to reactivate tenketsu. Neji could have crushed Naruto easily in that time lag but didn't. Hinata won't wait for Sakura to open. Plus remember how much chakra naruto had to exert to open single one(or was it few?) Sakura won't be able to open 16 or 32 of them even with her seal. Also Sakura's trump card has single handedly failed most number of times as I recall and requires preemptive timing which is highly unsuitable for fast exchanges in close combat.

      Hinata likely fought both and survived. Also Sakura doesn't has anything more than "basics" she displayed.Sasuke was sure that she would survive long enough. Nothing more or less.
      As far as comparison is concerned I feel that both are in same tier and not otherwise.

    • Hinata is not as ferocious or fast or skilled as neji. If it were neji fighting against sakura, then neji could close Sakura's chakra points before she could land a hit. Hinata is slow at least compared to sakura who was going head to head with sharingan active shin. The yin seal should give enough chakra to open up a couple of points enough for a chakra punch ,considering Hinata could actually close all the points with Sakura not even hitting her while doing so. The shockwave of Sakura's punches will knockout hinata. Hinata requires a dummy in front of her like that dumb mini juubi clone which doesn't do anything and waits patiently for Hinata to execute her technique.

      Hinata went head to head with Momoshiki and Kinshiki. Shin is nowhere close be it speed or power. Sasuke was literally struggling with Kinshiki's power and speed that he was forced to use teleportation.
      Plus Sakura has never shown that capability to use the punch in close combat in an ongoing exchange. she needs time to charge which is definitely not the case with Hinata.
        Loading editor
    • Yeah she did go up against Momoshiki and kinshiki ,but what happened, she ended up in the hospital. The fight was never shown and even if it was, chances are she didn't even land a hit. If sasuke was struggling against kinshiki as you say, you think Hinata has somewhat equivalent speed or skill or ability to go up against Momo and kin. If your saying that Hinata is actually on par with Sasuke as both went up against the otsutsuki, then Hinata is technically kage level or god level, which even in infinite tsukyoumi dream world is not possible. Hinata against the otsutsuki fight would have been like Boruto vs kakashi.

        Loading editor
    • Sakura didnt go all out against Shin because she never got a chance to use her medical ninjutsu or use Strength of 100 on him.

      Hinata would up in the hospital. Sakira wouldnt because of her Strength of 100.

    • Hey Hey hey infinite tsukuyomi makes anything possible..kiba became hokage ;_;..Sakura can surpass tsunade in there too😂


      Himawari KO'ed Naruto for a whole day which means he can be knocked out, after Naruto was found lying on the ground by Hinata she recognised the same technique that worked on Naruto, so there is a possibility that she can perform it... everyone got power boost after the war as seen with Sakura's weird speed boost, she displayed nothing like that in shippuden. And to ADD i kinda remember Hinata performing a similar technique indeed against the exploding humans, naruto stated that hinata can pierce their critical chakra points which she did and then she stated that they won't be able to move for a day ;_;

    • Dude, it was a gag. It wasn’t meant to be serious. Momoshiki tenketsu’d the hell out of Naruto and send him flying and Naruto was just fine afterwards. You can’t bring this up in a serious VS Debate. Sakura is not getting oneshotted.

      What did Hinata ever do to make you think that she is so powerful? That she is sannin level or even beyond? You can say that we saw her at her best in the Last, where she didn’t do anything to make be believe she is that strong.

        Loading editor
    • It has canon-ish material present in it tho...Himawari's byakugan. Even if it was for comedic relief they shouldn't have made it that messed up, i remember reading somewhere that there exists a one shot manga of this episode. do you know of it? if it's true then this scene is legit and no longer funny...except for the kurama part. And dude Hinata proved that she can KO a person for a day....

        Loading editor
    • Both of them can potentially one-shot each other with their fighting style. Sakura's strength and the Gentle Fist in general is deadly.

      It's safe to say that Hinata has greatly improved based on her being able to defend herself against Toneri's puppet's even without her Byakugan and that she can also do what Himawari did to Naruto. And besides, we haven't seen much from Hinata. Sakura's has had more screentime in fights and has had more proper fights than Hinata.

      Himawari hitting Naruto might be a "fluke", but the fact is that after awakening her Byakugan, she immediately can see the tenketsu and is able to effectively use the Gentle Fist which can even knock out Naruto, all without prior training.

    • In terms of punching strength. Yes. Naruto has Sakura beat in every other category

        Loading editor
    • I disagree. Sakura doesn’t punch harder than Naruto. If Naruto were to infuse a big quantity of chakra in his punch (IE what he did vs Toneri), he would punch harder than Sakura ever could.

      It’s all about how much chakra Naruto infuses in his punches.Regular Naruto SPSM punches are around the same level as Sasuke’s Susanoo punches, as seen vs Momoshiki. But if he were to infuse chakra in it, he would well surpass this feat. Even a 4-tails Naruto with enough chakra infused almost blew up an entire forest with just a slap on the ground. When he punched Toneri, he completely destroyed the surroundings. And in all the cases i just mentioned, Naruto was never at his full power peak.

      While i do agree that Sakura surpassed Tsunade and IMO she would absolutely murder Hinata, she has limitations and isn’t quite at that level of strength. Neither is Tsunade.

    • Sakura's feat was her exhausted and low on chakra. she casually nuked the battlefield with one punch in the war, so we havent seen her use a large portion of her chakra for a punch.

    • Hinata would be able to defeat Sakura imo. They are both close range fighters, but I think the gentlefist style of hinata puts her above sakura. She touches the right point and she can shut down sakura's chakra amped punches. I think she is also skillful enough to avoid getting one shotted before she does. I don't think the seal on sakura's forehead is at all comparable to a jinchuriki. Naruto couldn't use his own chakra, but the ninetails was a separate entity who's chakra wasn't blocked and was thus able to force chakra through naruto's sealed tenketsu. I'm pretty sure the yinseal requires the user to activate it like a jutsu, so if sakura's chakra is sealed, she wouldn't be able to mould the chakra necessary to release the seal. Even if she could, then its just round 2.

      I think Sakura surpassed Tsunade due to greater natural talent in chakra control plus Tsunade being her master. she caught up quickly as a result. The only thing Tsunade has over her is quantity of battle experience and experience in general, but Sakura has been gaining lots of quality experience and I think is smarter than what many give her credit for in battle. But at the same time, Tsunade had to invent the mitotic regeneration while sakura learned it fairly quickly. Both are incredible feats but I think having to both invent a jutsu and master it is harder. We will have to see if Sakura can do something in the medical department that Tsunade could not, but right now I do think Sakura overall has surpassed Tsunade.

    • @CombatIQmatters

      I want to ask you a question. Are you actually serious about everything you've said in your comment? Hinata is no where near Sakura. In fact, she's two leagues below Sakura. Sakura is literally Kage Level, whereas Hinata is High-Chunin or Low-Jonin at max. Even Base Naruto, from the end of Part Shippuden, would DESTROY adult Hinata.

      And Hinata is NOWHERE even near Tsunade.

    • @Legion..

      And i guess you're implying that Kaguya's horn had the same durability as Kaguya herself? Sakura just trained under tsunade,received no power-ups but still Tsunade won't be able to punch a horn off of a fatigued Kaguya?

        Loading editor
    • Personally, Sakura and Tsunade are both Inhumane monsters.... Sakura hit Kaguya's horn, but Tsunade shattered a Susanoo multiple times Sakura is in my opinion, a better all around shinobi than Tsunade is only because of the speed increase. With Sakura's fight with Uchiha Shin, we see her moving quickly and fighting, and in that situation, I don't know if Tsunade could even keep up.

      It survived 9 Tailed Beast Rasenshurikens so yea. We saw Tsunade unable to break through a humanoid Susanoo. No she is not doing the same to Kaguya.

    • I do think so, she doesn't need to maintain a youthful appearance and there's nothing I can really think of that suggests she is weaker per say although I will say it's not easy to determine how much she surpasses Tsunade as Sakura doesn't really get to do a lot after unlocking the 100 healings jutsu.

      The gentle fist style puts any hyuuga above a normal taijutsu fighter, but Hinata's skill in using it is not that great. If it were neji no doubt he would block Sakura's chakra points before she could land a hit, but Hinata , please she doesn't have the ferocity or speed to do so. Hinata very very rarely has executed 64 palms technique successfully, and when she did, it had to be a slow moving worthlessness fodder. Sakura just hits the ground with one punch, that shockwave itself will blow Hinata away. Even if Hinata lands a few hits ,if they aren't at the fatal point, then Sakura also has her monstrous strength to tackle her down. When has Hinata shown some jonin level speed or actually has won against any weak fodder jonin ? Worst case Sakura uses her summon to melt Hinata.


      Wow Hinata surpassing tsunade, that won't happen ever. She is a chunin to low jonin at the most, only in theory she can beat any jonin , practically she never will. Tsunade went up against Madara and all, Hinata had to be kept relevant by giving her hamura chakra and made her a descendant of hamura out of the blue. She would be ko'ed by Tsunade,Sakura etc

    • My bad, I meant that Sakura surpassed Tsunade not Hinata in the second paragraph of my comment, that was a typo, I edited it. Hinata barely got battle screen time in part two no? She fought Pein, which is literally one of the worst matchups for Hinata's style.

      @Arturia and Soloking I agree that Hinata is below Sakura but matchups are a thing


      Hinata doesn't beat Sakura because of a skill difference, it's because of matchup. Sakura relies on chakra control to make her CQC punches a one shot right? and also is accustommed to taking blows to trade blows, using durablityy and hax healing to make that possible. Well her skillset is hard countered by the hyuga, who don't rely on heavy force they rely on precision attacks to surgically break down their opponent and shut off their jutsu and cause severe organ damage. I think the matchup disadvantage might be enough to overcome the skill difference between the two. Sakura hasn't had much experience fighting a Hyuga right? I feel like people like Gai and rock lee have a better chance against the hyuga style of fighting when it comes to CQC.

    • @SOLOKING Remember, Hinata got Hamura's chakra. I think that would put her equal to or superior to Neji. Sakura's whole fighting style revolves around chakra. I do not think, though, that Tsunade could defeat Hinata, I think it would go like Tsunade vs Kabuto.

      Late but earky Shippuden Naruto did actually surpass a Kakashi who had not yet mastered his MS, it's just that Kakashi went on to resurpass him by mastering his MS by the time of the 4th war.

      So 4th war Kakashi > 4th war Naruto > Early Shippuden Naruto > early Shippuden kakashi

    • Sakura's rate of growth outpaces Tsunade by a lot. She may not have had the experience that Tsunade had, but Sakura had basically all of her moves by the time she was fighting the Ten Tails.

      If you simply extrapolate her growth over the next 15 years, it's not hard to imagine that Sakura's growth surpasses Tsunade.

      Measuring them by the same yard-stick isn't that fair, when you consider the disparity in their age. If we set both of them to age 30, which would you say is more powerful? Sakura.
