hard to pick...
I'd say Itachi too.
I will say Minato, he's just so badass and so powerfull yet he doesn't have a kekkai genkai, would have choose itachi if minato was known to have a kekkai genkai though.

Shikamaru. Other option wouild have been Zabuza. Shikamaru has been the character I've related to most and his fights in part 1 are still my fav fights in the whole manga.
Itachi Always Epic!
Killer Bee, the only light in the second part of naruto. his rapping, his skills, his sasukebashing, his jokes... without him naruto would suck much more
He was such a great mix of lighthearted silliness and the hard edge of a lifelong warrior like him. I remember moments like when he was sitting down for drinks with Tsunade and he tells her straight up that if she attempts to betray Konoha to Orochimaru he will kill her. And I don't think anybody doubted that he was 100% serious. The fact that a character so devoted to comic relief could pull stuff like that off so well elevates him to me over other great characters like Itachi.
Jiraiya. My favorite Naruto character, and one of my all time favorite characters in any manga. Naruto has never been the same after his death. Part of the reason why the Pain Invasion was so great to me was because so much of it was about Jiraiya's life. So funny, so goofy, so cool, so powerful and so reputed on many fronts. Ero Sennin, you are still missed, and the brothels in Naruto miss you immensely.
Honorable mention: Uchiha Itachi. Epic, awesome, legend.
Sasuke. He's one of the most well rounded fighters and his descent into darkness has been great.
Sasuke. I think I might like other characters better like Itachi or Shikamaru, but they don't get as much screen time as he does. Also, the manga usually becomes much more entertaining when he is involved.
Madara he's just too epic
