Naruto was once described by Kakashi Hatake as
Konoha’s “number one loudest, unpredictable,
hyperactive knuckle headed ninja.” Naruto is always
energetic and a prankster at heart. Although he might not be
the most skilled ninja when it comes to any of the jutsu disciplines,
his resourcefulness and cleverness has surprised many
opponents in combat. He has repeated declared his own
“Way of the Ninja” in the series; this is mostly
comprised of never giving up and going back on his promises, as well as
always using his strength to protect his friends and loved
ones. But Naruto’s strong will can also turn into
stubbornness and even brashness in battle. On more
occasion, his teammates had to step in and stop Naruto from charging
forward blindly in a fit of rage.
Naruto is the son of the late Fourth Hokage,
Minato Namikaze, and a kunoichi from the former Whirlpool Country,
Kushina Uzumaki. It has been commented by Tsunade and Jiraiya
that although Naruto resembles his father the most, his personality and
jutsu style are almost identical to his
mother’s. In order to stop the rampaging
Nine-Tailed Demon Fox Kyuubi from destroying Konoha, the Fourth Hokage
Kyuubi inside his own infant son, Naruto. However,
Namikaze soon died from the process, leaving Naruto an orphan (it is
presumed his mother passed away previously). Even though the
Third Hokage forbid the adults from speaking about the demon sealed
inside Naruto, most still feared and ostracized him. Even so,
Naruto wouldn't let anyone stop him from his goal to eventually become
Naruto took his first step towards his goal when
he graduated from the Ninja Academy to become a genin level
ninja. His mentor and closest person to a family was Iruka
Umino, who despite having his own parents killed by Kyuubi, did not
bear any grudge against Naruto. Because of the
Kyuubi’s chakra off-balancing his own, Naruto had a hard time
performing even basic jutsus and was often picked on by other
kids. Iruka was always there to encourage him and often
treated Naruto to ramen at Ichiraku’s to reward him for
achieving certain goals.
After graduating, Naruto gained new friends in
the form of his new sensei and teammates, Kakashi Hatake, Sakura Haruno
and Sasuke Uchiha. Although it was rough at first, Naruto
eventually made strong bonds with Sasuke and Sakura, and was willing to
do everything he can to protect them. Naruto had a
crush on Sakura, but she repeatedly had made it clear to him that she
was only interested in Sasuke. It would not be until part II
did Sakura’s feelings for Naruto began to surface.
Naruto’s determination to become Hokage one day even affected
Tsunade, who would become the Fifth Hokage. Because
Naruto’s spirit resembled so much of her little brother
Nawaki and her lover Dan (both killed in the Ninja Wars), Tsunade
decided to pass on her amulet from the First Hokage to
Naruto. The amulet will be crucial later in the series
because it contains a special chakra crystal which allowed the First
Hokage to tame tailed beasts.
During the Sasuke Retrieval arc, Naruto and other
Konoha shinobi under Shikamaru’s leadership set out to bring
Saskue back to Konoha. It ultimately led to Naruto facing
Sasuke in a one-on-one battle at the Valley of the End.
Naruto failed to defeat Sasuke, who went on alone to join
Orochimaru’s organization. Naruto nearly lost his
life in the battle, alive only because of Kyuubi’s
regenerative abilities and the fact that Sasuke did not finish him
off. Nevertheless, Naruto was not about to give up on
Sasuke. Even as he sat in his hospital bed, he pledged to
Sakura again to bring Sasuke back for her.
During the time skip before part II, Naruto set
out with Jiraiya to travel and train in preparation for his ultimate
confrontation with Sasuke again. Jiraiya was the sensei to
Naruto’s father, Minato Namikaze, and taught Naruto the
Rasengan, an original jutsu developed by Minato. Naruto
improved his skills and gained a host of new abilities including better
control of his Kyuubi transformation. However, after an
incident where he nearly killed Sakura during one of his rampages in
the four-tailed Kyuubi form, Naruto was convinced by Yamato to rely
more on his own power in order to reach Sasuke. After
intensive training with Kakashi and Yamato, Naruto eventually developed
his own jutsu, the Spiral Shuriken, based on the original Rasengan but
with Wind chakra injected into the mix.
Naruto is most comfortable in close range hand to
hand combat. His immense natural chakra reserve allows him
greater stamina and gives him the ability to make multiple Shadow
Clones with ease. Initially in the series, Naruto often
charged in blindly with his clones in a mass attack. But in
part II he has started to learn to use his clones more effectively by
using them to test and analyze the enemy before committing to a full
attack. Naruto’s signature move is still the
Rasengan, it can deliver a lot of damage but must be delivered at point
blank range to the target. Although the Spiral Shuriken is a
far more deadly jutsu, Tsunade has forbid Naruto from using it because
its long term effects could prevent Naruto from using chakra ever again.
It has been revealed in chapter
367 that Naruto's biological parents were Minato Namikaze and

||Kage Bunshin no Jutsu (Ninjutsu)

techniques is to create Shadow Clones of himself. While most
ninja can only maintain three or four clones at a time.
Naruto's stamina and vast chakra reserve allows him to easily
create thirty or forty (maybe even hundreds).
||Oiroke no Jutsu (Ninjutsu)

the necessary chakra. Ironically, the form Naruto chose was
Gamakichi is on of the sons of Gamabunta, he was first
summoned by Naruto in his battle against Gaara because he couldn't
focus his chakra correctly. Gamakichi can talk and has a rude
attitude, but formed a friendship with Naruto after he shielded him
from Gaara's attacks.
Gamatatsu is also one of Gamabunta's sons. He was first
summoned by Naruto during the Search for Tsunade arc. Naruto had wanted
to summon Gamabunta instead, but could not access Kyuubi's chakra.
Gamatatsu can speak but seems less intelligent than Gamakichi
and also has a fixation on food.
Gamabunta is also known as the Toad King, and is one of the
most powerful toads Jiraiya can summon. Naruto is able to
summon Gamabunta by relying on his Kyuubi chakra. Gamabunta is several
stories tall, he speaks with yakuza (Japanese mafia) slang and carries
a giant yakuza dagger.

This is pretty much a copy of Sasuke's
Lion Combo. Naruto uses four Shadow Clones to hit the opponent into the
air and ends with a kick from above called the 'Naruto Rendan.'
Sealed inside Naruto is the demon fox
Kyuubi. Normally, Kyuubi's near limitless chakra passively heals
wounds. Naruto is slowy learning how to use Kyubi's chakra to
power-up his own techniques and increase his physical powers.
Transformation (Special) (Seal)
Using more of Kyuubi's chakra can
increase Naruto's powers exponentially. At high levels, a red
chakra shield will envelop Naruto. At even higher levels,
Naruto's body will begin transforming into a fox form.
However, the more he changes the more control
he loses to Kyuubi
Rasengan (Special) (Ninutsu)
Powered by Kyuubi's chakra, the Kyuubi Rasengan is formed

normal color. It is far more destructive than the regular
Rasengan but must still be delivered at close range.
||Odama Rasengan (Ninjutsu)
Great Ball Rasengan is an improved version of the original
Rasengan which Naruto developed during the time skip. It is far more
powerful and chakra intensive, so it requires Naruto and a Shadow Clone
to maintain it.
||Kyuubi Four-Tail Transformation
When Naruto grows a fourth tail during his Kyuubi
transformation, he loses all awareness of his actions and goes into a
rampage. A mixture of Kyuubi's chakra and his own blood coats his body,
forming an impenetrable layer. This state is very dangerous

||Kyuubi Chakra Cannon (Special)
In the Four-Tail Kyuubi state, Naruto is able to gather and
compress black chakra into a high density sphere. The sphere is then
swallowed and fired at an extreme velocity, creating a gigantic
shockwave in its wave.
||Rasen Shuriken (Ninjutsu)
Naruto developed the Spiral Shuriken during his training by
injecting his Wind chakra into the original Rasengan. Despite being
called a shuriken, the attack must be made at point blank range.
This jutsu is highly dangerous because it uses microscopic
blades of Wind chakra to attack every cell in the body.
||Sage Mode (Special)
After training with Fukasaku at Myoboku Mountain, Naruto is able
to master the Sage Mode technique which Jiraiya and his father had
learned. Sage mode allows Naruto to ampify his powers by drawing
in nature's energy and combining it with his own internal chakra.
But to gather nature's energy, Naruto needs to remain absolutely
||Frog Katas (Taijutsu)
Frog Katas is a fighting style Naruto can use while in sage
mode. Not only does sage mode amplify the strength of Naruto's
hits, the nature's energy he absorbed also increases the range of his
attacks. Essentially, Naruto does not need to physically contact
his opponent to actually strike him.
||Sage Tech: Rasengan (Ninjutsu)
The chakra boost Naruto receives from being in Sage mode allows him to create even larger and deadlier Rasengans.
||Sage Tech Rasen Shuriken (Ninjutsu)
This second evolution of the Rasen Shuriken is a long range
projectile version. The core of the Rasen Shuriken is composed of
dense Rasengan chakra while wind chakra spins rapidly around it like a
spinning disc. After being thrown at a target, the Rasen Shuriken
will rapidly expands to increase its attack area, surprising any foes
who may have thought they dodged it the first time.

||Kyuubi Six Tails Transformation (Special) (Seal)
The 6-tails state is similar to the 4-tails except that a
skeletal carapace begins forming over Naruto's body. The 6-tails
is not just stronger, it is also faster, more cunning and has far
better control over its own powers.
