List was made by biased baka gaijans.
Generally for most animes, the most powerful character is the coolest. Naruto is the most powerful. If we look at gret figures like goku and gohan, they are cool but still not as powerful as fox form Naruto.

Naruto is not as powerful an anime as Sonic the Edgehog. Look at what strong creatures Edge has spawned:

Obviously, the autism produced by Sonic the Edgehog is of a much higher power level than that of the meme-posting shitter that is Naruto the faygo.

Checkmate, weaboothiests.

Ummmmmmm, try again sweetie :)
You are arguing from a racist western WHITE perspective. Everyone knows IMO that sonic is a western creation created by imperialist pig dogs to subvert and corrupt honest honorary japanese such as myself. Well, this and the other buko no tenso no piko samurai bon bonin ronin ricemen are not swayed but such GAY arguments.
Further, autism is CLEARLY IMO a western Invention. It was invented BY the baron fo assberg in 1873 when he wanted to challenge freud.
Autistic spawns do not add to the power level of sonic, so sonic is weaker than naruto. Can sonic turn into a fox? Nope. That is why he has his IMO buddy taills the butt fox following him arund.

BUILD A WALL

And put the Naruto cancer behind it

That's what you'll be saying once you get to episode 5500000000 of Naruto. You'll want to drown yourself in your own crusted Japanese pancakes when you're done with the show.
