Naruto Shippuden Fillers: Skip or Worth Watching?

From 2007 to 2017, there were about 200 extra episodes in Naruto Shippuden.

We’ve talked about how the story arc affects whether or not you should watch some of these filler shows. But that doesn’t mean you have to watch all the shows we call “filler.”

Fans think that all of the extra episodes marked with “Watch” are fun, so you might want to watch them if you don’t mind spending time getting to know some of the side characters.

These episodes are fun to watch because they show how our favorite characters can have fun.

Naruto Shippuden also makes it hard to choose because some of the filler arcs have manga canon at the end or in the middle, which connects them to the main story.

We put “bold” next to extra episodes that contain manga canon to make it easier for you to find them on the list.
