    So, out of all the summons that have appeared in the manga so far, which one(s) do you guys think is the strongest? (dead or alive) I'd say either Gamabunta or Manda, but there might be other really strong ones that have appeared that I can't remember right off the bat.

    I think Manda. He did very well even when he was outnumbered.

    I think that as far as chakra levels and usefullness go, the leader of each summon animal family is probably equal. I think they are just best suited for different circumstances.

    I think from what we've seen, the 4 leaders, Gamabunta, Manda, Katsuyu, and enma, are all of equal ability and usefullness, but obviously are each best suited for different tasks.

    As far as strength goes, either Enma or Gamabunta depending on who the ninja that is fighting with them is. If you're judging just their lone capabilities, there is really no way to tell since we haven't seen any summons fight that much.

    That Multiple headed dog Rinnegan summon seemed pretty darn strong.

    I ignored the Rinnegan summons because technically they're all dead and just another manifestation of nagato, they are not individual self controlled beings, just more puppets.

    Ok, i'll give you that. I think they all have their strengths though. Enma seems to be the best at Hand to Hand Combat with its summoner, while Katsuyu is for healing primarily, or a dual with it's fighting, while Bunta and Manda seem to be best at the large battles.

    Naruto's on Gamakichi, and I vaguely recall Katsuyu being White and Blue.

    True they each have their own strengths in different areas. In a giant summon battle I think Manda is the strongest, he took on Gamabunta and Katsuyu(she doesn't seem like much of a fighter).

    Esecially since Sasuke killed Manda lol. At this point summons would only slow Naruto and Sasuke down though I'd think.

    Some other summons: We've seen Kidomaru pull a big spider, and Temari used her wind weasel to defeat Tayuya.

    We haven't seen a boss dog from Kakashi.

    Turtles are Gai's specialty

    I think he is refering to how Gamakichi summoned Naruto to toad mountain to begin his sage training and when Shima summoned Naruto along with the other toads to Konoha to fight Pain. So in way Naruto could beconsidered a summon. Fukasaku and Shima could be the stronges summons because of their ability to use senjutsu.
