Naruto is a fascinating series and the sheer range of techniques make you wondrously gasp in disbelief. It has its fair share of fast Shinobis and even an average Chunnin can be as fast as the speed of sound. Is Guy the fastest Shinobi ever? If not, who is?
We have things like flying Raijin, Reanimation technique, instant travel through dimensions across marked locations :
We also have Sasuke’s Rinnegan that can change the position of things in his vicinity (and thus also himself), this too is instantaneous. So who is the fastest Shinobi of all time? Let us dig in.
So what we know here is that teleportation is different, raw speed is different, and sometimes, rather mostly battle speed (like moving arms in close combat) is different.
From all we know, we at stufflistings consider Might Guy as the best contender for the fastest shinobi ever.
Guy Eight Gates
The most consequential clue resides in his fight with Madara. We have posted a video in case you wanna relive it.
Consider the number of times Madara was caught off guard.
It all started with this 2nd step of his Sekizo, he made a half revolution and Madara couldn’t flinch, and after that it was he landed many air punches successfully. And here we have the same Madara who was easily able to keep up with Naruto and Sasuke and chopped off Minato‘s arm.
You know why he was able to use techniques like this?
Because he had time, the same reason he couldn’t or didn’t use limbo against Guy, Guy never gave him any space to act. If you don’t agree with me, watch the fight Madara Vs Guy again and decide for yourself.
The fight involved :
- A direct air blow punch.
- A Sekizo barrier Madara failed to keep up with.
- Night Guy that bent space.
From his air punches, we can conclude that his battle speed and reflexes were too fast, let us not forget the damage he did with Night Guy, which is in all honesty just a physical attack :
If his physical attacks were this powerful, obviously he kicked and punched very fast, his Battle speed was thus unparalleled.
Not to mention that he was bending space, something that we have never seen in the series and we know what it implies – Relativistic speeds!
Guy Bending Space
The most important clue for me is how helpless Madara was for the entirety of the battle, with no time to act.
All that he had was physical attacks to count on and most likely he was the fastest.
