On the other hand, Sumire showed great skill in hand-to-hand combat, being able to fight on par with Mitsuki for a few moments.

As an Inner of Kara, Amado is considered to be completely monstrous in terms of abilities. Also, he has been shown to be fast enough to get close to Shikadai in an instant to tie him up after being released from his paralysis.
Ao was a retired shinobi and hero from Kirigakure who was a member of the hunter ninja unit. He was one of the Fifth Mizukage’s bodyguards and the commander of the Allied Shinobi Forces Sensor Division during the Fourth Shinobi World War. He served as one of the “Outers” of the Kara organization.
As a veteran of the Kirigakure ANBU Ninja Hunters, Ao was a very capable tracker and had extensive knowledge of the human body. He possessed great speed and reactivity, being able to grab and redirect the Kama back at the attacker before they came at him from behind. The same skills of his earned him to be one of the bodyguards of the Fifth Mizukage.
He had such combat skills that he was able to survive a battle against Shisui, a powerful shinobi, who was considered a genius even among the Uchiha; Not to mention that he survived the Ten-Tailed Tailed Beast Ball, being the only one known to survive said incident.
After rehabilitating him, due to his condition and damage done to him, Ao became unable to perform Taijutsu. Despite this, he still had great reflexes and speed, since, in a few seconds, he was able to take a screwdriver from Katasuke and point it at Boruto’s neck without anyone being able to react, as well as being able to immobilize Katasuke and kick Boruto hard.
Despite his age, he still had enough power to put Jonin-level ninjas like Konohamaru, Mugino, and Katasuke on the ropes; not to mention forcing them to flee with Team 7, killing Mugino in the process. Ao also possessed great stamina, as he managed to survive a rock avalanche without taking much damage at all.
Kawaki is a Genin affiliated with Konohagakure. He is a mysterious young man and the key to fulfilling the greatest wish of the Kara organization.
Although most of his abilities are unknown, Kawaki is a highly-skilled fighter, as he was able to blow Garō’s jaw off and defeat a large number of Autonomous Puppets. He is confident enough in his abilities to believe that he can defeat Garō, even in his weakened state, easily killing him after activating his Karma.
Being recognized by Delta, Kawaki produced an explosion strong enough to have finished off Team Konohamaru. He is able to produce a shock wave from his body with enough force to create a large crater below him.
Code is one of the “Inners” of the Kara organization and the failed vessel of Isshiki Ōtsutsuki.
As an Inner of Kara, Code is considered to be completely monstrous in terms of abilities, with his body modified with Ninja Scientific Tools by Amado. Code is confident of his abilities, stating that he is stronger than Delta, stating that he or Boro would be the next to be sent to deal with the Hokage. His abilities earned him being sent to protect the Ten-Tails.
According to Kawaki, he is much stronger than Delta or Boro. Even in Amado’s words, his warlike potential surpassed that of Jigen, being so powerful that a limiter was put on him to contain him so as not to destabilize the true leader’s control. Even with the limiter on him, Amado commented that in a match with Naruto, he would probably come out on top against the Hokage after he lost Kurama.
Delta was one of the “Inners” of the Kara organization. After her initial deactivation and Amado’s defection to Konohagakure, she would reprogram Delta to be a weapon that could defend Konoha.
Being one of the top members of the Kara organization, Delta is known to be a high-level kunoichi, being considered to be completely monstrous in terms of abilities, with her body modified with Ninja Scientific Tools by Amado. Her ability is such that she was able to put up a fight with Naruto, even though he was holding back, and make it considerably harder for her to capture him.
Delta possesses a great deal of physical strength, being able to kick a table and destroy it against a wall as well as destroy part of a tree with one punch, even exchanging blows with Naruto in his Six Paths Sage Mode and injuring him with her attacks.
She also possesses great speed, agility, and reflexes. She is good enough in close combat to corner Naruto himself with a series of powerful, swift kicks or not hesitate to engage him in close combat and present a challenge for the Hokage, who is one of the most prominent users of taijutsu in all of history. However, Kawaki later noted that he was holding back.
Jigen was a novice monk who had his entire body controlled by Isshiki Ōtsutsuki, functioning as his vessel. In his past, Jigen was an ordinary human without any special qualities, possessing a body too weak to function as a vessel for an Ōtsutsuki. However, after being controlled by Isshiki and receiving a series of modifications with Ninja Scientific Tools by Amado, Jigen increased his power to immeasurable levels, being considered completely monstrous in terms of abilities.
Under Isshiki’s control, Jigen’s body was incredibly resilient, as he took a kick from Naruto in Six Paths Sage Mode to the jaw without sustaining any injuries. He had great speed and physical strength, kicking Naruto long distances with ease, impressing the Hokage.
Jigen obtained his Karma in the form of a black diamond on his chin after being completely controlled by Isshiki, with the intention of using it to revive. However, Jigen’s body was not able to withstand his full power so Isshiki was only capable of unfolding a fraction of its full potential.
When activating the mark, it extended along his body in the form of black bars; Jigen was able to manifest a partial transformation in Isshiki, manifesting his horn on his head. This transformation apparently increased his power with the risk of overexploiting Jigen’s body.
5. Shin Uchiha
Shin Uchiha was a shinobi who was once a follower of Orochimaru and his test subject for experimentation with genetics. Shin was trying to revive Akatsuki and return the conflicts to the world so that humans could evolve through them. Despite his last name, he wasn’t really a member of the Uchiha Clan.
Shin was a very capable combatant and strategist, such that he was almost able to defeat Sasuke by manipulating his father’s state before Sakura’s intervention. During her battle against Sakura, he was able to stand his ground against her and hurt her to the point of being exhausted after Sasuke’s intervention.
Shin possessed a unique genetic makeup that allowed him to fully accept any genetic material, be it tissue, organs, or entire limbs, without the ability to reject it, allowing him to fully integrate it into his being. This allowed Shin to make use of any genetic modification to its full potential.
According to Orochimaru, it was precisely this ability that facilitated the creation of clones as permanent entities separate from himself. These clones apparently possess the same genetic modifications that Shin underwent.
4. Koji Kashin
Koji Kashin is a clone of Jiraiya created by Amado. He was one of the “Inners” of the Kara organization, being in charge of the surroundings of the Land of Fire.
As an Inner of Kara, Koji is considered to be completely monstrous in terms of abilities, with his body modified with Ninja Scientific Tools by Amado. Koji refers to himself as an assassin; it has been noted that he is not an ordinary person and was recognized by Isshiki as a very capable man.
He was able to kill Victor with ease, having such confidence in his abilities that he was confident in defeating Delta, as well as being able to take on a weakened Isshiki while inside Jigen, managing to kill the vessel.

Isshiki Ōtsutsuki was a member of the main family of the Ōtsutsuki Clan. He used Jigen as a vessel until his eventual resurrection and, under his identity, acted as one of the “Inners” and the leader of the Kara organization.
Although the full extent of his abilities is unknown, Isshiki’s power was so great that Jigen’s body was unable to fully contain him, thus limiting the amount of power he could wield, stating that Kawaki’s body was the one indicated. Despite this, using his body along with Karma, he was able to defeat both Naruto and Sasuke, who were using his full power.
According to Kawaki, Isshiki’s power was comparable to that of the Seventh Hokage, Naruto. However, Koji felt that the Hokage would not be able to defeat him if the skills and strength he used against Delta were the full extents of his power. Likewise, Sasuke felt nervous witnessing a display of Isshiki’s power, considering the inevitable conflict against him to be far more dangerous, opting to retreat rather than face him.
For her part, Ino Yamanaka was terrified as she felt Isshiki’s chakra nearly collapse, describing it as incredibly sinister. He possessed good senses being able to notice the presence of Koji’s toad, which even Naruto did not notice. On the other hand, he was able to levitate and absorb chakra, plus he seemed to have knowledge in fūinjutsu, as he successfully sealed Naruto and Kurama.

He was also shown to be a Sensor-Type with incredible abilities, being able to detect shards of Kaguya’s chakra from countries away.
