Main Naruto Characters
One of the main and strongest Naruto characters is Naruto Uzumaki. The first part of the series portrays the story of the main protagonist called Naruto Uzumaki who is an active and energetic ninja who dreams to become Hokage, the leader of his village to earn the respect of villagers and to protect them from all evils and troubles. He also wishes to control a monster named the Nine Tails in his body.
He becomes a Ninja after getting trained in the Ninja Academy and learning various martial art strategies like ninjutsu and taijutsu skills. His favorite catchphrase “Believe it!” reflects his never giving up attitude.
One of the best powers of Naruto is to create several duplicates of himself. He also has the ability to boost his speed, agility, and strength.
Eventually, as the story moves forward, Naruto socializes with many foreign and Konoha people and becomes famous worldwide. Naruto finally achieves his dream of becoming the leader of his village and gets married to Hinata Hyuga with whom he even had two lovely kids.
During the initial phase of the series, Naruto joins Team 7 where he meets his opponent Sasuke Uchiha who eventually becomes his friend. Designed by Masashi, Sasuke is a cool and knowledgeable “genius” of the Uchiha clan. The elder brother of Sasuke, Itachi Uchiha, kills all his family members.
Due to this, the only and primary motive of Sasuke is to take revenge on his elder brother. To complete his sole desire, Sasuke develops a strong and cold personality. After joining Team 7, Sasuke starts valuing his team members more than himself and decides to protect them even if he has to risk his life for them.
Talking about his skills, Sasuke has a deep knowledge and understanding of taijutsu and is well aware of various fire techniques like “Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu”.
He also has the power and potential to determine the next move or action of his rival. However, after getting defeated at the hands of his brother in Part 1, Sasuke decides to leave the village and learn more powerful tactics from Orochimaru.
Sakura Haruno is one of the strongest and most powerful Naruto females who is a member of Team 7. While designing the character of Sakura, Masashi confessed that he had a bit idea of what an ideal girl should be like. Because of her large forehead, many children used to tease and mock Sakura.
However, Ino Yamanaka, a member of Team 10 comforted her and the two became childhood buddies in no time. However, eventually, while growing up, a difference started developing between the two friends due to their love and feelings for Sasuke Uchiha.
Sakura has superior power and strength, and can attack her opponents using a punch when she is angered by saying “Cha!”. Further, she is a medical ninja having in-depth knowledge of medicines and treatments. She can heal every wounded or injured person.
During the early phase of Part I, Sakura gets attracted to Sasuke and falls in love with him. On the other hand, Sasuke finds her an irritating and annoying girl.
Kakashi Hatake, Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, and Mitsuki are a few of the other commendable and praise-worthy Naruto characters. Along with them, Kidomaru is one of the most outspoken black characters in the Naruto series who is dark-skinned with shaggy black hair and black eyes.
If you wish to watch Naruto, it is available on Netflix. Enjoy it with your friends and family members.
