Who is Uzumaki Naruto?
Naruto (Uzumaki Naruto) is a Konohagakure shinobi. On the day of his birth, he became the jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails, a fate that caused him to be shunned by most of Konoha throughout his childhood. Naruto worked hard after joining Team Kakashi to gain the village’s approval while pursuing his dream of becoming Hokage.
Over the next few years, he developed into a capable ninja, regarded as a hero by both the villagers and, soon after, the rest of the world, earning the moniker “Hero of the Hidden Leaf.”
He quickly established himself as one of the key players in the village’s victory in the Fourth Shinobi World War, allowing him to realize his ambition of becoming the village’s Seventh Hokage.
Uzumaki Naruto’s Voice Actor
Junko Takeuchi, a Japanese voice actor contributed her voice to Naruto Uzumaki. She is also know Takuya Kanbara in Digimon Frontier, Rin Natsuki/Cure Rouge in Yes! PreCure 5, Metabee in Medabots, Mamoru Endou in Inazuma Eleven and Inazuma Eleven GO, Gon Freecss in the 1999 version of Hunter × Hunter.
Similarly, Maile Flanagan voiced Naruto Uzumaki in the English dub of Naruto. Maile Flanagan is an American television, film, and voice actress. She has also had recurring roles on Shameless, Bad Teacher, The Class, Grey’s Anatomy, and many cartoons.
Naruto has the physique of a typical teenage boy, though he is taller than the average Japanese adolescent. His hair is blond and spiky, and his eyes are blue. The whiskers on Naruto’s cheeks are a result of his mother, Kushina Uzumaki, being the host of the demon fox while she was pregnant with Naruto.
Naruto wears a black shirt underneath an orange and blue jacket with a red spiral symbol on the back that is rolled up at the sleeves. He also wears orange rolled-up pants and blue open-toed shoes, which are common among ninjas. Naruto’s attire is frequently used to link him to Dragonball’s protagonist Goku, who also wears orange and blue.
In Part I, Naruto is introduced as a mischievous, rambunctious adolescent shy boy who frequently pulls pranks on his superiors. Despite the fact that most of his classmates and others doubt his abilities, Naruto remains steadfast in his goal to become a successful ninja and rise to the position of Hokage.
His ambitious goals, on the other hand, can cause him to be stubborn, causing him to clash with his teammates and teachers, especially Sasuke Uchiha, a former teammate, and self-proclaimed rival. Naruto has also proven to be a pervert, inventing the Sexy Technique, in which he transforms into a naked female version of himself, and the Harem Technique, in which he combines the Sexy Technique with the Shadow Replication Technique.
In Part II, Naruto matures a bit more, though he still has some childish tendencies, such as arguing with his superiors in a hurry. Despite the fact that Naruto isn’t a prodigy or exceptionally gifted like Sasuke and Neji, he has proven to be exceptionally clever, earning him the moniker “most unpredictable ninja.”
Furthermore, despite having been ignored and despised for the majority of his childhood, Naruto can be very compassionate, and his harsh upbringing has allowed him to empathize with several antagonists throughout the series, including Gaara. His strong compassion for others, on the other hand, frequently backfires, as he can easily become enraged if someone he cares about is mortally wounded—a personality trait exacerbated by the nine-tailed fox within him.
Naruto and Hinata Hyuga
Hinata Hyuga started loving Naruto Uzumaki since her childhood. Naruto first met Hinata Hyga when they were both preparing to enroll at the Academy as children. Despite the fact that he didn’t know her, Naruto refused to let the three bullies insult her and defended her, but he was outmanned and knocked unconscious, and the bullies damaged his red scarf.
Hinata thanked Naruto for his assistance and returned his scarf to him when he awoke, but he let her keep it. Hinata has had a strong admiration for Naruto since that time.
During the Chunnin exam, Naruto supported Hinata when she was fighting with Hyuga Neji. After Hinata lost the fight, an enraged Naruto vowed to defeat Neji in her place with her blood.
When Naruto expressed his growing doubts about the upcoming match and his abilities to Hinata a month later, she reassured him that he never gave up because he always had the strength to overcome his setbacks. Naruto thanked Hinata for helping him get out of his depression, and he told her that despite thinking of her as “weird,” he liked someone like her.
When Hinata saw Naruto being pinned down by the Akatsuki leader during Pain’s assault on Konoha, she leapt into the fray. Naruto, concerned for Hinata’s safety, asked her to leave the fight. Despite the fact that she knew she had no chance against Pain, Hinata refused to leave and confessed her love for Naruto and her willingness to protect him at any cost.
Naruto was speechless after hearing her confession, and when he saw Pain stabbing Hinata, he flew into a rage, allowing Kurama to take control and continue the fight. Later, after Kurama was defeated, Naruto was distraught over the possibility that he had killed Hinata and the villagers while under the fox’s influence, but was relieved to learn that she and the others were still alive.
Hinata cried tears of joy and relief after learning that Naruto had defeated Pain, and he safely returned to the village, where he was later seen smiling as everyone celebrated Naruto’s victory.
After one of Naruto’s shadow clones assisted Hinata and the Second Division in defeating a group of White Zetsu clones during the Fourth Shinobi World War, she began to lament the fact that, despite her desire to protect Naruto, he ended up saving her instead.
Due to the Nine-Tails’ chakra abilities, Naruto noticed Hinata feeling down on herself and reassured her that she was strong, recounting her helping him defeat Pain, which she silently thanked him for. Later, when Obito tried to break Naruto’s faith in himself after Neji gave his life to protect both Naruto and Hinata from the Ten-Tails, Hinata snapped him out of it by telling him that if his life is connected to everyone who shared his beliefs and was willing to sacrifice themselves for him, he should not blame himself, give in to despair, and have Neji die in vain.
Naruto’s self-confidence was restored thanks to her and Kurama’s help, and he took Hinata’s hand in his, thanking her for sticking by his side before transferring Kurama’s chakra to her and the rest of the Shinobi Alliance.
After War over, Hinata and Naruto got married. All Kages and their all friends and sensei attended their wedding. Together, they welcomed two children name Boruto Uzumaki and Himawari.
Shadow Clone Jutsu
The Shadow Clone Technique was Naruto’s first signature technique. Naruto was unable to perform the majority of the basic techniques taught at the Academy, including a basic Clone Technique. When Iruka put his life on the line to save Naruto, he overcame this by employing the Multiple Shadow Clone Technique, effectively overcoming his inability to create a clone.
Naruto’s mastery of the Shadow Clone Technique skyrocketed from that point forward. Naruto, as a ninja with unusually high chakra reserves, could use this technique, as well as its advanced version, to easily create hundreds of shadow clones while retaining a reasonable amount of chakra in each one.
Naruto’s only successful technique in the Academy was the Sexy Technique, which had no practical use other than shocking his instructors. He learned new ninjutsu from Jiraiya during his shinobi career, including summoning toads from Mount Myboku to assist him in battle and using them to crush enemies from above.
He learned shurikenjutsu and was able to throw weapons quickly and accurately, barrage an enemy with shadow clones, or use Momoshiki tsutsuki as Hokage. When Naruto received Gerotora near the start of the Fourth Shinobi World War, his repertoire expanded to include ninjutsu.
The Rasengan, a one-handed technique created by Naruto’s father, was his second trademark technique. Naruto frequently used a shadow clone to form the spherical shape while he provided the chakra due to his poor chakra control. Naruto’s skill improves over time, allowing him to make larger versions of the Rasengan, perform it faster, and even have his shadow clones create their own Rasengan.
He learned to use the Rasengan and its variants without the use of shadow clones or transformations during the Fourth Shinobi World War, and could even form one in both hands at the same time. He also grew his standard Rasengan in size, making it noticeably larger.
In the anime, Naruto demonstrated the ability to release the Rasengan as an energy wave or a projectile. Naruto could create more powerful and elaborate variations of the Rasengan by using senjutsu or Kurama’s chakra; with the latter, he even created the Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball, which he performed in a similar manner to the Rasengan.
Naruto’s natural affinity is Wind Release, which he learned to channel into his weapons to increase their offensive power from Asuma Sarutobi. He was able to complete the difficult task of adding his elemental nature to the Rasengan with the help of shadow clones, something his father had not been able to do before his death. The Rasengan was formed by one shadow clone, while the Wind chakra was provided by the other, resulting in the Wind Release: Rasengan and the Wind Release: Rasenshuriken.
When used as a melee attack, the latter deals cellular damage to both the opponent and Naruto. He was able to form a Rasenshuriken without any shadow clones and throw it in his base form two years after its creation, a feat he could previously only accomplish while using Sage Mode or Kurama’s chakra, which removed the negative side-effect to himself. He could also make different-sized Rasenshuriken and even use two of them at the same time. Naruto became able to use his nature transformations with a single hand seal during his reign as Hokage, and he was able to use Earth Release to quickly create a long stretch of strong stone wall.
Naruto can use all five nature transformations, as well as Yin–Yang Release, with the Six Paths Senjutsu. He could make excellent use of the latter to re-energize life-forces, heal anyone he came into contact with, and replace missing organs. Naruto could also use the kekkei genkai of Shukaku’s Magnet Release, Son Gok’s Lava Release, and Koku’s Boil Release with chakra from the tailed beasts.
Naruto was trained in senjutsu at Mount Myboku after Jiraiya’s death, which required his high chakra reserves. Unlike Jiraiya, he was able to balance natural energy with his chakra and enter Sage Mode, which was symbolized by the orange pigmentation around his eyes. Naruto’s techniques became stronger, his physical parameters improved, and he was able to use the Frog Kata taijutsu style.
Due to Kurama’s interference, Fukasaku was unable to fuse with Naruto and gather natural energy for him, so Naruto had to rely on shadow clones to keep the technique alive. The natural energy they absorb would transfer to the original once they dispersed, allowing him to use Sage Mode multiple times.
Creating more than five shadow clones, on the other hand, would detract from the clones’ ability to gather natural energy. Naruto’s ability to enter Sage Mode much faster has reduced the need for this method over time.
Naruto discovered how to combine Sage Mode with Kurama’s chakra to improve his abilities and resist Nagato’s control, allowing him to shatter Truth-Seeking Balls.
Six Paths Sage Mode
Naruto was able to access the Six Paths Sage Mode thanks to the power given to him by Hagoromo. His pupils take on a cross-like shape and his eyes turn yellow in this mode, but he retains the orange pigmentation around his eyes that he had in Sage Mode.
Naruto could also don a new chakra cloak, similar to Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, that he could activate instantly and keep for a much longer period of time than Sage Mode. Naruto’s Six Paths Sage Mode cloak evolved several times over the course of his life. Naruto’s physical abilities and techniques have been enhanced to the point where he can dodge attacks faster than the speed of light. He could fly and was immune to Truth-Seeking Balls while in this mode.
Naruto also manifested nine Truth-Seeking Balls, which were made up of all five basic natures, Yin–Yang Release, and the Sage Chakra of the Six Paths. He could make staves and platforms out of the balls, fire them as projectiles, turn them into Tailed Beast Balls to make Tailed Beast Ball Rasenshuriken, or transfer them to his shadow clones.
Naruto also kept his Kurama Tailed Beast Mode avatar, which was larger and more powerful than Sasuke’s Complete Body — Susanoo. He could combine three Kurama avatars into a single construct with three faces and six arms, similar to Asura’s, using shadow clones. Naruto was able to infuse natural energy into two massive Rasenshuriken while in this state.
