[[folder:Naruto's loved ones]]
[[WMG:Iruka Umino]]

-> ''"Stop acting like a baby! You want to know what I really think of you?! I think you're one of my most precious students… and… you're like a little brother to me."''

->Voiced By: Creator/ToshihikoSeki (JP), Creator/QuintonFlynn (EN), José Antonio Macías (Latin America)

OK, he doesn't appear all that often, but to deny his impact on Naruto's life would be impossible.

Iruka is a Chunin, an academy instructor, and -- at first -- one of the only people willing to acknowledge Naruto as anything other than a hideous monster. This is largely because Naruto's childhood mirrored his own - both lost their parents at an early age, and both tried to cope by acting out and becoming goofballs. (Though it's stated that Iruka ''did'' hate Naruto at first -- his parents were killed by the Kyuubi, after all). It's this influence in Naruto's life that keeps him from becoming a psychotic killer -- like, for example, Gaara.

Iruka appears rather infrequently in the plot, but remains incredibly beloved with the fandom. He figures pretty heavily into the first episode, where he fights Mizuki with Naruto, but later is reduced to a few cameo appearances. He's also involved in one of the filler arcs and actually gets to fight.

In ''Shippuden'', he appears to welcome back Naruto to the village, then doesn't show up for a ''long'' time. [[spoiler: He finally reappears in Chapter 405, where he helps Naruto get over the death of Jiraiya. Pain attacks him during the second invasion of Konoha, but Kakashi saves him. During the Ninja War arc, he's sent to try and stop Naruto leaving the island, but decides to tell him the truth about the war, and is unable to prevent Naruto from running off.]].

* AllThereInTheManual / InformedAbility: He's a chuunin academy teacher and possibly one of the most genuinely kind people in Konoha, but his overall stats reveal that he is more skilled than quite a few jounin and special jounin.
* AttentionWhore: As a young boy, he would do ridiculous things like humiliate himself in front of his classmates for attention to cope with the loneliness of being an orphan.
* BadassTeacher: Dude threw himself in front of a giant ass shuriken in order to protect Naruto in the first chapter.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's an extremely laid-back and compassionate man in almost every appearance, but that all flies out the window when someone tries to hurt Naruto.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards his former or current students, especially Naruto.
* CharacterDevelopment: Pretty decent amount for a minor character. In the beginning of the series, he had no problem requesting that none of the Rookie Nine be allowed to take the Chuunin exams while their teachers were present. He taught them all so he believed that he had a better idea of their strengths and weaknesses were. He didn't think any of them were prepared. Kakashi tells him rather matter-of-factly that they were not his students anymore but the members of Team 7 were his soldiers. Later on, he understands Kakashi's words for himself when he is able to be the one to congratulate Team 7 when they passed the second phase of the exams. [[spoiler: In his most recent appearance, he appears to have come to terms with Naruto's growth as a shinobi through a letter to him wishing for his safe return.]]
* CoolTeacher
* GeometricMagic: We finally see him use a ninjutsu in chapter 535 and its a barrier seal [[spoiler: but Naruto is able to escape easily.]]
** ContainmentField
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Across his nose.
* [[LikeASonToMe Like a Little Brother to Me]]: Towards Naruto. Frequently mixes into the [[ParentalSubstitute fatherly domain]] as well.
* MrFanservice: For such a minor character, he sure has strongly devoted female fanbase.
* NiceGuy
* NoseBleed: Gets these from Naruto's perverted jutsus, and Naruto nicknames him this at one point.
* NotSoDifferent: He realizes that he and Naruto had very similar childhoods, and he thus is the first person to acknowledge him.
* PapaWolf: To most of his students, but ''especially'' towards Naruto.
* ParentalAbandonment: Both his parents were killed by the Nine-Tailed Fox.
* ParentalSubstitute: Naruto suggests that being with him is like having a father.
* SoProudOfYou: To Naruto on numerous occasions as he grows and matures throughout the series, but especially after Jiraiya's death and Pain's invasion of Konoha.
* TeamMom ''and'' TeamDad: More the first than the latter, though.
* {{Tsundere}}: Pegged as a Type B in fandom.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Iruka like Naruto enjoys ramen as his favorite food with Ichiraku Ramen being his premier choice.
* YouShallNotPass: [[spoiler: To Naruto himself when he tries to leave the island and join the war. Naruto shrug it off, anyway]]

[[WMG:Konohamaru [[SarutobiSasuke Sarutobi]]]]
-> ''"Someone told me there's no shortcut on the path of a ninja!"''

->Voiced By: Creator/IkueOtani (JP), Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey (EN), Gaby Ugarte (Latin America)

Grandson of the Third Hokage, nephew of Asuma; first introduced early in the series (second anime episode) as an 8-year-old privately tutored in ninja arts by self-described elite teacher Ebisu in this appearance; later on, he's a regular Academy student. His goal is to become Hokage -- ''after'' Naruto, whom he sees as a role model (addressing him as ''[[JapaneseSiblingTerminology Naruto-niichan]]''). Usually appears with friends Udon (who has an ''udon''-like booger hanging from his nose) and self-described "cutest kunoichi in grade school" Moegi.

Generally, an appearance of Konohamaru in Part I is an indication you're watching {{Filler}}.

In ''Shippuden'', he's a genin under Ebisu-sensei along with Udon and Moegi.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Acts as this to Naruto who is his BigBrotherMentor.
* BadassBoast: [[spoiler: "I am a genin of the Sarutobi clan, honored with the name of this village! Surname is Sarutobi! Given name is Konohamaru! Remember that!']]
* BerserkButton: You can insult him, you can insult his clan, but insult Naruto and he'll Rasengan you.
* BlushSticker: Before the TimeSkip.
* BrattyHalfPint: At first.
* EnergyBall: Inherited Naruto's Rasengan.
* FlechetteStorm: Inherits the Third Hokage's Shuriken Shadow Clone technique.
* GenerationXerox: In the anime he uses techniques from both his late Grandfather, Uncle and Naruto.
* GogglesDoNothing: Like Naruto, he wears them as he would a headband until he makes Genin.
* {{Gonk}}: His first attempts at the Sexy Jutsu.
* HeroWorshipper
* InTheNameOfTheMoon
* MesACrowd: Inherits Naruto's Shadow Clone technique.
* MobileShrubbery: Used one pre-Shippuden with Moegi and Udon. Kind of a running gag in the anime.
* PlayingWithFire: Inherits Asuma's Burning Ash technique.
* MobileShrubbery / PaperThinDisguise: Some of his disguises, like a perfectly rectangular rock with visible eyeholes that has ''gunpowder'' in it.
* [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya My Name Is Sarutobi Konohamaru]]: And here's a Rasengan, Pain!
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Apparently, he picked up the Rasengan at some point. And successfully used it to defeat ''one of Pain's bodies''. Though granted, it wasn't significanty damaged and he just caught it off guard. Plus it wasn't especially the strongest one]].
* VerbalTic: "''kore''".
* WarriorPrince: Grandson of the Third Hokage.

[[WMG:Kushina Uzumaki]]

-> ''"Thank you for letting me be your mother, and for letting Minato be your father. Thank you for being our son. Thank you… Thank you!"''

->Voiced By: Creator/EmiShinohara (JP), Creator/CindyRobinson (EN)

Naruto's MissingMom. Originally from the Whirlpool country, she grew up in a time of very many wars before eventually coming to live in Konoha after her country was destroyed. [[spoiler: Became Kurama's second jinchuuriki, after receiving it directly from the first one, the First Hokage's wife Mito Uzumaki; Tobi somehow discovered this and extracted Kurama from her, taking advantage of the fact that Kushina had just given birth to Naruto. She dies soon afterwards, but not before taking part in the defense of Konoha by helping Minato to seal the fox (along with some of her own chakra) into their son.]]

[[spoiler: Over 16 years after her death, the sealed chakra comes into play when she appears inside Naruto's head to help him defeat Kurama and to explain the details of Kurama's attack, as well as [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming just to finally bond with the son that tragedy prevented her from raising.]]]]

* [[spoiler: ActionMom]]: See the trope below this. [[spoiler:She even managed to survive having Kurama pulled out of her, albeit only briefly. She even took a freaking claw through the stomach and ''caught it on the way out'' to keep it from hitting Naruto.]]
* BarrierMaiden: Not only was [[spoiler:the Kurama's seal made from her chakra, but she was also the former jinchuuriki of Kurama. More exactly, the second one: the first was Mito, member of her clan and the First Hokage's wife.]].
* [[spoiler:BattleCouple]]: [[spoiler:She and Minato definitely count, as they worked together to seal Kurama into Naruto and play the ThanatosGambit that would take their lives and be so important for their village and their kid.]]
* ChainPain[=/=]VariableLengthChain: Her specialty sealing jutsu's where themed around them.
** ForceField: She can generate a powerful barrier ninjutsu with her chains.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: She and Minato knew each other as kids, and couldn't have been more than about 14 when they fell in love.
* FieryRedhead: [[spoiler: She beat up all the kids who called her "Tomato," thus earning her new "Red HotBlooded Habenero" nickname. She gave her own son a good thwack when he accused her of being Kurama's real form, too.]]
* GenerationXerox: [[spoiler: According to Tsunade, Naruto's personality, love of pranks and tactics come from her]]. Not to mention [[spoiler:her being the former Jinchuuriki of the Kurama]].
** HotBlooded: It's even part of her nickname.
** TrademarkFavoriteFood: [[spoiler: Naruto got his love of ramen from her, though it is interesting to note that their favorite ''flavours'' of ramen differ. Namely Naruto's favorite is Miso Ramen with extra pork while Kushina likes Salt Ramen]].
** VerbalTic: "''Dattebane!''", to be precise. She does it when flustered or excited, just like him.
* GrayEyes: Though she doesn't exactly fit the associated personality types.
* GeniusDitz: She often acts ditzy or [[HotBlooded exactly like Naruto]]. But she also [[spoiler:taught Minato many sealing techniques. The kind for which her country was destroyed because they were so feared]].
* HeroesWantRedHeads: Minato Namikaze certainly did.
* IAmNotPretty: [[spoiler:Kushina actually apologizes to Naruto for inheriting her face instead of his father's. But Naruto finds her to be a babe]].
* MamaBear: [[spoiler: When the Nine-Tails tried to kill baby Naruto, Kushina threw herself in front of the fox so that its giant claw impaled her instead of her son. Keep in mind that she just gave birth and was slowly dying at that point.]]
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:But part of her personality was set inside the seal...somehow...so happy reunions all around!]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[spoiler:The Red HotBlooded Habanero.]]
* [[spoiler:PosthumousCharacter: After Naruto suppresses the fox, she reveals that she's planning on rejoining Minato, indicating that she truly is dead. And this is confirmed later, as she fades away a while later.]].
* PunnyName: Uzumaki - Uzu means whirlpool.
* RapunzelHair
* [[spoiler:RasputinianDeath]]
* RedHeadedStepchild: She was bullied when she was young because of her distinctive red hair.
* RedStringOfFate: [[spoiler:Strands of her red hair]] are what led [[spoiler:Minato]] to rescue her.
* RescueRomance: How she and [[spoiler:Minato]] got started.
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan: And [[BigBad Tobi]] just had to open it...]]
* ScreamingBirth: More justified than usual. [[spoiler:Being a Jinchuuriki resulted in her pregnancy running ''ten months'' instead of the usual nine. Not to mention the fact that childbirth weakens the seal, meaning she had to hold the demon ''in'' while pushing her kid ''out'']].
* {{Tomboy}} (in her youth) -> SheIsAllGrownUp (According to Tsunade, she grew into her looks)
** FeminineWomenCanCook: May have been a rough-housing terror in her youth, but [[spoiler: Minato's]] [[ThroughHisStomach favorite food]] is [[SupremeChef her cooking.]]
* TrailOfBreadCrumbs: When kidnapped, she left behind a trail of her red hair, which is how [[spoiler: Minato]] found her.
* {{Tsundere}}
* VerbalTic: "''[[GenerationXerox dattebane!]]''"
* WackyCravings happened during a short flashback
* ZettaiRyouiki: She wore those when a teenager.

[[folder:Konoha's Elders]]
There are several Elders aside from the Hokage who make some of the decisions in Konoha. Although they rarely appear, their decisions direct Konoha and thus their impact is keenly felt. They were the ones who selected the Third's replacement. [[spoiler:They were the ones who decided to have Itachi massacre the Uchiha Clan.]]

They include:

Tropes associated with them
* BadassGrandpa / NeverMessWithGranny
* GenreBlindness: Multiple fanfictions have them doing what ever it takes to exile/kill Naruto for being the jinchuuiki. In truth they tried to confine Naruto for that reason.

[[WMG:Koharu Utatane and Homura Mitokado]]
->Voice for Koharu Utatane: Junko Midori (JP), Ikuko Watanabe (young adult, JP), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN)
->Voice for Homura Mitokado: Hikaru Miyata (JP), Taira Kikumoto (young adult, JP), Creator/BeauBillingslea (EN)



Koharu Utatane is the female. ''Really'' hates Tsunade.

Homura Mitokado is the man.

Both two are former teammates of the 3rd Hokage.

They display examples of:

* EyesAlwaysShut: Koharu
* IWasQuiteALooker: You wouldn't know it now, but Koharu was ''hot'' in the old days. Not that she's a {{Gonk}} now, but...
* [[BadassGrandpa Badass]] [[NeverMessWithGranny Seniors]]: In a flashback, they contribute in [[spoiler:throwing Kurama out of Konoha by force, ''through the Village Walls'', standing in the front Line]].
** Utatane is stated to be one of the few people able to put Tsunade in her place when she oversteps her authority.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: During the [[spoiler: Battle of Kurama helped to throw by force the Demon out of Konoha.]]
* GovernmentConspiracy: Along with Danzo, they are the ones who [[spoiler:ordered the Uchiha Massacre]]. [[IDidWhatIHadToDo Confirmed]] by Danzo.
* RealityWarper: Koharu in Filler. She shows the ability to alter matter to remove explosive tags.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: So far they have not shown any resentment for Naruto, Tsunade or even the [[spoiler:Uchihas]] and seem to only care for the well being of Konoha... which means they can choose very harsh and brutal options, like wanting to put on a leash Naruto (Tsunade refused) or [[spoiler: instigating the Uchiha Massacre to avoid a civil war]]. They later wanted to protect Naruto from Akatsuki by leaving him in a secret place. Not because they cared for him as a person, but to be sure the sole Tailed-Beast Host of the Leaf wouldn't be abducted.

[[WMG:Danzo Shimura]]

->''""To be a shinobi is to sacrifice oneself. Closing your eyes to the sunlight, distinguishing yourself in the shadows. That is the true form of ninja."''

->Voiced By: HiroshiIto (JP), William Frederick Knight (EN)

A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_hawk war hawk]]. Ran opposite Sarutobi for the position of Third Hokage, but lost. Runs ANBU's Root Division, a secret-police-type division of Konoha's military which is zealously loyal to the village ([[spoiler:or more accurately, zealously loyal to Danzo personally]]). (According to Danzo, Root is the unseen support on which the Leaf depends -- get it?)

May end up being quite a bit more important to the plot than his infrequent appearances would suggest (he didn't even appear until ''Shippuden''), as he's evidently been pulling strings behind the scenes for quite some time. He believes Konoha should rule by force, and resents the more diplomatic stances taken by the Third Hokage and his successors, which he believes softens the village's ninja and makes them weak.

As the sheer amount of whited out text under this one may indicate, he's a spoiler incarnate, so read at your own risk.

[[spoiler:It turns out that he wanted the position of Third Hokage so bad, that he secretly aligned himself with Hanzo of the Rain Village. After Pains' invasion is thwarted, he lambasts the citizens of Konoha, stating that the interconnected Hokages made the village weak. As a result, he is named the acting Sixth Hokage in Tsunade's absence by the daimyo, but currently lacks the approval of the jonins needed to get the position permanently. He expects that if he can make the Kage Summit go well, they would have no choice but to give him full approval. He goes off to the summit with his bodyguards. He almost managed to get appointed leader of the alliance against Akatsuki on Mifune's advisement, but Ao interrupts, stating that Danzo's eye allows him a MindControl dojutsu that is being used to influence Mifune's decision. He admits to it, claiming that he's fulfilling a need for the shinobi to unify for protection, then makes a veiled threat towards Ao. When Sasuke invades the meeting room, he takes it as an opportunity for his party to leave with Ao in pursuit.]]

[[spoiler:Madara manages to track him down, and after a brief battle with the bodyguards, Madara disposes of them and brings out Sasuke to fight him, at which point Danzo reveals what's really under his bandages- [[EyesDoNotBelongThere his "collection" of Sharingan.]] Despite Danzo's liberal use of the forbidden reality-warping jutsu Izanagi, he loses the battle, and in his dying moments activates a suicide technique in a final but failed attempt to kill both Sasuke and Madara.]]

[[spoiler:It's further revealed that his obsession with ninja's being strong stems from a inferiority complex that's been with him since before Hiruzen was selected as the 3rd Hokage and from his personal belief that a ninja should be prepared to sacrifice himself for the greater good -- a belief he follows to the letter. It's also revealed that his rivalry with Sarutobi was less bitter than it seems to be.]]
* AggressiveNegotiations: Plans to sorta do this [[spoiler:at the Kage Summit, using Shisui Uchiha's eye]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Almost became Hokage, after all.
* BadassGrandpa
* [[spoiler: BadassTransplant]]
* BigBadEnsemble: With Akatsuki and Orochimaru for ''Shippuden''.
* BlowYouAway: He knows several wind techniques, all of which involve RazorWind or vacuum.
* BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: One of the foundations of Root.
* [[spoiler:BodyHorror: It starts innocently enough - when Ao scans him with the Byakugan, we're told he's not only taken Shishui's eye, but his arm. Observe closely, and you can clearly see that Danzo has a second ''[[{{Squick}} face]]'' hidden on his arm. And that's merely the ''beginning'' ; his entire ''arm'' is dotted with [[EyesDoNotBelongThere Sharingan he's taken from dead Uchiha]]]].
* TheChessmaster
** [[spoiler:EyeScream]]
** [[spoiler:EyesDoNotBelongThere: Presumably [[HumanResources taken from]] other dead Uchiha's. ''All over his arms''.]]
*** [[spoiler:{{Squick}}: After all of this... Of course!!!]].
* TheCorrupter: Indirect example as his actions are responsible for the FaceHeelTurn and fall of [[spoiler: Sasuke, Itachi, Nagato, and Konan]]. While [[spoiler: Hanzo]] was the culprit of the prime event regarding the later two, Danzo was an accomplice in [[spoiler: the betrayal that led to said event]], which makes him indirectly responsible. More directly, to all the members of [=ROOT=], whose TrainingFromHell includes ''repeatedly'' being forced to battle one another to the death to kill their emotions. He would probably deny that any of this was corruption, though- in his mind, this is how ninja are ''supposed'' to be.
** [[spoiler: And with chapter 583, we can now add Kabuto to that list.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Never gave up his dream of becoming Hokage. [[spoiler:Utterly refuses to let go after his defeat at Sasuke's hands. Even badly wounded and with an arm lost, he tried to kill the latter and Madara. One feels a bit sorry when his desperation technique doesn't even manage to hurt them]].
* {{Doomed Moral Victor}}: His attempt to kill Sasuke and Tobi while he's dying fails, but he still destroys Shisui's eye, which pisses Tobi off.
* [[EyesAlwaysShut Eye Always Shut]]: Most of the time anyway.
* EyepatchOfPower: [[spoiler:A bunch of bandages conceal a ''Sharingan'', which he got from Shisui Uchiha.]]
* FanNickname: Probably within minutes of scans of [[spoiler:chapter 475 hitting the Internet, Danzo's right arm was nicknamed "the Sharingarm]]".
* FirstNameBasis: [[spoiler: Was the only character in-series to be this with Hiruzen Sarutobi, the 3rd Hokage.]]
* {{Flanderization}}: In fanfics, he is usually portrayed as EvilOverlord wannabe just wanting to TakeOverTheWorld just because.
* GeometricMagic: He seems very proficient in sealing techniques, including one that paralyzes the person it's on if they try to reveal certain information, and another that simply paralyzes a person as soon as it's activated.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: An X-shaped one on his chin.
* [[spoiler:GreenThumb: Which he got as a result of the same Orochimaru experiment tested on Yamato. His doesn't work quite as well, though.]]
* HandicappedBadass: Seems this at first, with a bandaged eye and arm. [[spoiler:Subverted, as he only ''pretended'' to be handicapped; both his arm and eye actually work, he just doesn't want to use them unnecessarily.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSelfDeprecation: Danzo had a massive inferiority complex when he was younger, believing himself to be weak because he couldn't quite bring himself to be the first to volunteer to do potentialy life threatening tasks, and therefore in his eyes unable to live up to his father's example, or his own personal creed about self-sacrifice.]]
* [[spoiler:HourOfPower: Each eye on his arm lets him use Izanagi for one minute. After that the eye goes blind instantly and closes forever]].
* [[spoiler:HumanResources: Has a "collection" of Sharingans, as well as Uchiha Shisui's right arm to keep them in, and views Sasuke and Madara as prospective additions to same]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: He expects ninjas to be self-sacrificing while he himself is too cowardly to do so himself and has never perform any self-sacrifice in his entire life [[spoiler:(he merely pretends to be handicapped).]] It should be noted he ''hates'' himself for this and wishes he had the courage to give his life for his village. [[spoiler: He does...in the TakingYouWithMe sense that he was going to die anyway, at least.]]
* [[spoiler:IWasQuiteALooker: Though not quite as bishonen as some of the others, in a flashback he's revealed to have been quite good looking in his younger years]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: If it helps him to be a Hokage, [[spoiler:letting Konoha's population getting massacred]] is a-OK.
** It's slightly more complicated than that. He tries to do whats best for Konoha at all times, but thinks his leadership is essential to the village's survival. In his mind, gaining political power is merely a step in his plans which will end with Konoha being better off in the long run.
* TheLawOfDiminishingDefensiveEffort: An alternative take. Since [[spoiler: he can revive himself thanks to Izanagi, Danzo doesn't bother with tricks or dodging moves for most of his fight against Sasuke. It almost looks like his strategy was simply "make him believe you're dead to catch him"]]. It doesn't end well.
* LetsGetDangerous: Danzo has this written all over him. When first introduced he was well past his prime (being about the same age as the Third Hokage was)- with one eye, a missing arm and a walking cane. Cut to [[spoiler:the Kage Summit arc where it is revealed that he's got a friggin' Sharingan and effortlessly wipes out a unit of mooks that attacks him, sheathing his sword in one of their heads to free up his hand so he can use jutsu. Later at the meeting we find out he has MindControl powers, and then that he's not missing an arm, he just has an arm full of Sharingan eyes that allows him to shamelessly respawn as if the Naruto universe were some multiplayer first person shooter. Huh.]]
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: For all the critics of his actions and results, is clear that he deeply loved and wanted what was best for Konoha. Subverted in a sense- since he is one of the Elders and is perhaps the only guy in the entire village who actually preaches or believes this, it is he who ''decides'' what is Right and Wrong.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Acts he has committed in the past are responsible for the fall of Pain, Konan, Itachi and Sasuke as well as [[spoiler: being indirectly responsible for Kabuto's fall into darkness.]]
* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler:The seal he put on each member of Root disappears when he dies]].
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Though he's not really goofy looking like Lee or the Tsuchikage, his face is still drawn in an incredibly different fashion than most other characters.
* NotSoDifferent: His belief that a ninja should protect his village at all costs, his dream of becoming Hokage, and having to do things the hard way as opposed to being naturally gifted, makes for some eerie parallels between him and Naruto if one thinks about it.
* TheOnlyOne: He believes he's the only person who can change the world for the better. [[WrongGenreSavvy Someone apparently forgot to tell him he was in a shonen series]].
* PoisonousFriend: He believed himself to be this to Hiruzen, using Root "in the Shadows" to protect Konoha (and maybe Hiruzen). At all costs. If he was right is a matter of arguing
* [[spoiler:PowerIncontinence: When he's on the brink of death he loses control of his Wood Release power, and has to [[LifeOrLimbDecision rip off his arm]] before it engulfs him.]]
* PowerParasite: [[spoiler:He merged ''ten Sharingans into his arm'', including Shisui's Sharingan, which has the Mangekyo Sharingan and the famous illusions that Shishui gained from it. The ''arm itself'' belonged to Shisui, as well, and Danzo's managed to obtain Senju DNA, thereby granting access to Izanagi for himself. He uses them in conjunction when he fights Sasuke]].
* [[spoiler:RealityWarper: A partial form of this. He can use the technique "Izanagi" which evidently allows the user to remove the boundaries between reality and illusion, allowing the user to reinforce his vision of reality on himself. In doing so, the user can take any injury, even death, and deem it an illusion, but it can render user's attack as reality.]]
* [[spoiler:RedOniBlueOni: Believed that he and Sarutobi were this, saying that Sarutobi represented the leaves that grow in the sun while he himself represented the roots within the dark]].
* RememberTheNewGuy: Shows up after the TimeSkip. Subverted in that the younger characters really ''don't'' know who he is- the main continuity issue is where the hell he was when Orochimaru attacked the village, but that could be {{Hand Wave}}ed without too much difficulty, given how much he prefers to operate in the shadows. He could even simply have been elsewhere at the time. [[spoiler:He actually allied himself with Orochimaru, so it makes sense thathe would get the hell out of there.]]
* [[spoiler:TheRival: To Sarutobi, who Danzo felt was better than he was, and always tried to surpass him, though it didn't stop him from respecting Sarutobi deep down (he was even on a FirstNameBasis with Sarutobi which says a lot).]]
** [[spoiler:[[RivalTurnedEvil Rival Turned Well Intentioned Extremist]]: Danzo used to be Sarutobi's rival, but also respected him. However, as he grew older, their rivalry became much more bitter over time, at least on Danzo's end]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to Sasuke throughout their fight. [[ShutUpHannibal Falls on deaf ears.]]
* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler: His entire life can be seen as this. None of his plans go as planned: 1)he didn't become Hokage 2)his plan to use Hanzo leads to the creation of Pain 3)offing the Uchiha clan ends up weakening the village, exiling one of its most promising shinobi and his final demise. His position as acting Hokage lasted ''less than a week'' and managed to antagonize '''the entire Ninja World''' and his HeroicSacrifice was noted as worthless by his enemies]].
* TheStarscream: Implied to have had a hand in Orochimaru's invasion of Konoha so he could seize the position of Hokage for himself. Left the Hidden Leaf to its destruction in Pain's invasion to seize the position after the ashes. Allied with Hanzo in order to get the Hokage position (though how he intended to use this alliance remain extremely blurry).
* TheStoic: ''"Emotions generate hatred and hatred breeds conflict."''
** NotSoStoic: When [[spoiler:it's suggested Kakashi be appointed Sixth Hokage ahead of him]] he immediately flies into a rant about how the Third Hokage's teaching have left the village weak and lead to all its trouble. [[{{Irony}} In spite of his own beliefs]], [[spoiler:this one display of emotion was what finally got him the position he had been seeking for years]].
** [[spoiler: That or him finally being in a position to mind-woogie the Fire Daimyo with his implanted eye without being noticed.]]
* [[spoiler: TakingYouWithMe]]: [[spoiler: Does a last-ditch attempt of this on Sasuke and Madara before he dies, to no effect.]]
** [[spoiler: Though to be fair he does at least succeed in preventing Madara from getting Shisui's eye, so it wasn't a complete waste.]]
* TomatoSurprise
* [[spoiler:TyrantTakesTheHelm: Subverted, as he would certainly like to make major changes (especially involving Naruto), but he knows this would make him unpopular (and make him lose his position), so avoids making decisions that might prove unpopular.]]
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: He legitimately wants to bring peace to the ninja world and believes he can do so if he's in charge. Unfortunately he gives little consideration to ethics and won't hesitate to kill anyone in the way of his goals or otherwise ShootTheDog.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: A bit more on the extreme side than some, but there's no doubt that he ''thinks'' that he has Konoha's best interest at heart.
* [[spoiler:WhyWontYouDie]]: Although he effectively [[spoiler:died more or less ten times during his fight against Sasuke]]. Justified thanks to his [[spoiler:RealityWarper]] powers.

[[folder:Chunin Exam Proctors]]
[[WMG:Ibiki Morino]]

->Voiced By: TaitenKusunoki (JP), Creator/KimStrauss (EN, Original), David Rasner (EN, Current), Carlos Segundo (Latin America)

Head of Konoha's Interrogation Department, and ''very good'' at what he does. His name alone is enough to scare people. First appeared as the proctor of the written part of the Chunnin Exam. Since then he shows up whenever Konoha needs to make a prisoner talk.

* AloofBigBrother: A filler arc showed he had a little brother, Idate, whom he failed with a different version of the Chunnin Exam. The brothers have also been estranged for quite some time, although Ibiki still keeps track of Idate's movements outside the village.
* BadassLongCoat
* BreakThemByTalking: This is his ''job''.
* BaldOfAwesome: Though in his case, it's combined with...
* ExaltedTorturer
* GoodScarsEvilScars: See above image. 'Good guy' scars over his lip and cheek. The thing is, that's only two of them. The rest are under his bandanna.
* HiddenHeartOfGold
* HiddenPurposeTest: Double layered. An actual written exam with a hidden purpose that itself hides a second test.
* MindRape: The "mundane" variety is his favorite interrogation tool.
* PhysicalScarsPsychologicalScars: The scars on his head represent the mental torture he underwent years back along with the burns he received from saving his little brother.
* PleaseKeepYourHatOn: The scars on his head are ''so'' horrible that everyone shudders when he takes off his bandanna. He's the one providing the top image, ffs!
* SadisticChoice: Subverted. See Hidden Purpose Test.
* SpartanSibling: It's alluded to that Ibiki was some degree of this prior to Idate's exile. He did pull a KnightTemplarBigBrother when he found out Idate's ManipulativeBastard instructor had tricked and used him, but it was already too late by that point.
* TortureCellar: Can trap his enemies in one with SummonMagic.

!!Anko Mitarashi

->''"Heads up, boys and girls, this is no time to be celebrating! I'll be your next proctor. Anko Mitarashi. You ready for the second test? Good! Then let's go, follow me!"''

->Voiced By: Creator/TakakoHonda (JP), Julianne Buescher (EN Original), Creator/LauraBailey (EN Current), Connie Madera (Latin America)

A spunky, boisterous ActionGirl, Anko is without a doubt best known in the fandom for her BadassLongcoat (which she wears [[VaporWear very little]] underneath) and her DarkAndTroubledPast - she was a student of Orochimaru and he abandoned her... but not until AFTER he branded her with a Cursed Seal to try and see if it would kill people that were given it. It did, and she was the only one to survive. Most of her appearances have her eating her TrademarkFavoriteFood, ''dango'', which is basically a stick with dumplings on it made from rice paste. She has a PunnyName, too - both her first and last names are dango toppings.

In ''Shippuden'', [[spoiler: she was tasked with tracking the movements of Kabuto. Just as the Fourth Great Ninja War started, she was attacked and defeated by Kabuto]].

* ActionGirl: Lost the two fights she was in (first was Orochimaru and second against [[spoiler:Kabuto]]), but held her own as much as she could against both of her opponents.
* AdaptationExpansion: Her background is explained further in a filler arc, where it's revealed that she wasn't tossed aside by Orochimaru, but that she left on her own.
* BadassLongcoat
* BigEater: She ate at least 40 sticks of dango in one sitting. Girl ''loves'' her dango.
* BoisterousBruiser: She's outgoing and playful, but somewhat mischievous and rather hyperactive.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: She's basically a female Naruto, except more studious - hence why she's an Exam Procter.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt
* DynamicEntry: That's how she first appeared.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Interrupted Ibiki Morino's part of the exam by breaking through the window. You can read the quote right at the top of her page; the rest of the class was understandably weirded out.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Pupil-less.
* {{Flanderization}}: In fanfics is usually portrayed as a someone who ReallyGetsAround and will go after AnythingThatMoves.
* GenkiGirl: Ibiki [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it when she first appears.
* HiddenDepths: her hobby is conducting Tea Ceremonies.
* TheLadette: Very much so, but with a more cocky, boisterous outlook.
* MeaningfulName / PunnyName: Mitarashi and anko are dango toppings. Guess what her favorite food is.
* MsFanservice: One of the most recognizable ones in this series to date.
** {{Stripperiffic}}: Yeah, only a miniskirt, longcoat, and wire mesh/chainmail covering from her neck down to her thighs. How her outfit manages to ''actually conceal anything'' is a mystery that really could only be explained by genjutsu.
** VaporWear: Well, given her outfit, it seems like [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar she's not wearing a bra.]]
** TheTease: Remember, she ''did'' scratch Naruto's face with a knife and licked the blood off his cheek. Also, her outfit is pretty distracting.
** StupidSexyFlanders: Some female fans feel this way about her, as a result.
* PluckyGirl
* OutOfFocus: She was used and betrayed by Orochimaru, so you might think she would get her revenge, right? Wrong, Sasuke got to him. Also, she seems like an interesting and dramatic character, so you might think they would explore her a bit more, right? WRONG, she's a side-character, and most of her supposedly genius skills, which made Orochimaru interested in her in first place, are mostly obscured! She recently discovered [[spoiler: the BigBad Hideout, so you might think she can do justice to her fame and defeat Kabutochimaru? WRONG AGAIN! She is captured, bound, and has her Curse Mark power slowly drained by Kabuto]].
* SexyMentor: Well, she's technically a teacher, and she's sexy. Also, see the following entry and look at the MsFanservice label.
* SnakesAreSexy: Contrasting nicely with her mentor Orochimaru's evil snake motif.
* {{Shotacon}}: There was an instance in Part I where she threw a kunai at Naruto, teleported behind him as his cheek bled, held him close, and asked him while stroking his face, "You tough enough to handle this? You're not afraid are you? Tough guys like you usually leave their blood all over this forest." [[http://read.mangashare.com/Naruto/chapter-045/page003.html She then licked the blood from his face]]. "Spilling that delicious blood that I like so much..." Remember that Anko was 24 years old and Naruto was 12 years old then.
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Dango but of course, which even provide the inspiration for her name ("''mitarashi''" is a dango seasoning).
* TheOtherDarrin: Anko has had an astounding three voice actresses - Julianne Buescher for her initial appearance, LauraBailey during the filler arcs and some video games, and KariWahlgren in her other video game appearances
* YouTasteDelicious: Did this to Naruto once.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Mild example. [[http://images.wikia.com/naruto/images/f/f5/Chakra_Draining_Seal.jpg For reference.]]

!!Hayate Gekko

->Voiced By: Creator/NozomuSasaki (JP), Creator/LexLang (EN), Irwin Daayan (Latin America)

The proctor for the preliminaries of the Third Chunin Exam, who is responsible for determining the winners for the fights and ending them when one person is unable to continue. He stumbles upon Kabuto meeting with Baki to discuss the Sand Village participating in the invasion of Konoha, and Baki kills him for it. His lover Yugao finds his katana and swears to avenge him.

When the main match of the Third Exam begins, he's been replaced by fellow jonin Genma Shiranui.

* HandicappedBadass: Implied - he moves with ''astounding'' speed to stop Neji from killing Hinata, and he's able to damage Baki's jacket (which mightn't seem impressive, but he was at a disadvantage in the fight). Baki actually ''praises Hayate's skills'' and wonders whether all Konoha ninja are this talented.
* HeKnowsTooMuch
* IllBoy: With IncurableCoughOfDeath included.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Wields a katana and is said to be skilled at kenjutsu, but loses his only fight. Baki, after all, wielded an ''air katana!''
* SacrificialLamb: Pretty much his whole purpose.

[[folder:Previous Ino-Shika-Cho]]
Tropes that apply to the team in general:
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: A male example. Inoichi is the blond, Shikaku is the dark-haired one, and Choza is the redhead.
* CoolOldGuy: Though they're not THAT old.
* GenerationXerox: Shikaku looks almost ''exactly'' like his son, albeit with more scars and facial hair. Similarly, his relationship with Choza and Inoichi is a copy of the past ''14'' generations of their three families (and their own children make 16). Inoichi is a [[GenderFlip genderflipped]] example; had Ino been a male, he would look like a younger Inoichi; Choza, meanwhile, looks like a larger, more masculine, red-haired version of Choji, albeit with different facial markings and eyes that are nearly [[EyesAlwaysShut always shut]].
* GoodParents: All three of them have good relationships with their kids.
* RedOniBlueOni: Maybe not as much as their sons, but Choza and Shikaku display traits of this. Shikaku might not wear blue, but he's generally calm, fiercely intelligent, a respected and trusted strategist, and a long-range fighter. Choza, meanwhile, is the most physical of the trio [[spoiler: (and in the Ninja War arc, he's the only one on the frontlines)]], fights at close to mid-range, and although he's not as emotional as his son, he has his moments. Not to mention he has the appropriate hair colour.

!!Shikaku Nara

->Voiced By: Hiroshi Yanaka (JP), Jonathan Fahn (EN)

Shikamaru's father and the Jonin Commander of Konoha. [[spoiler: During the Ninja War arc, he acts as Tsunade's right-hand man and is in charge of planning and co-ordinating attacks.]]

* BadassBeard
* CommandingCoolness
* DarkIsNotEvil
** CastingAShadow
** ShadowPin
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* HenpeckedHusband: Both him and Shikamaru are very careful to ''never'' make [[ApronMatron Yoshino]] angry.
* ShadowPin: The Nara clan signature technique.
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: Even better than Shikamaru at shogi. Naturally.
* TheStoic
* TheStrategist
* WhatTheHellHero: To Shikamaru, calling him a spineless coward when the latter decides he wants to give up being a shinobi after failing to retrieve Sasuke.

!!Inoichi Yamanaka

* [[LongHairedPrettyBoy Long Haired Pretty Man]]
* MindProbe: Complete with raiding the NeuroVault.
* MonochromaticEyes
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling
* PeoplePuppets: The Mind Body Disturbance Technique takes control of an enemy's body without transferring your own consciousness, making it a lot less risky than the Mind Body Switch Technique.
* PsychicNosebleed
* {{Telepathy}}

!!Choza Akimichi
->Voiced By: Nobuaki Fukuda (JP), Michael Sorich (EN)

Choji's father and head of the Akimichi clan. [[spoiler: During the Ninja War arc, he is placed in the First Division alongside Darui, Tenten, and Hiashi Hyuuga.]]

* {{Acrofatic}}

* BadassBoast:
-->[[spoiler:'''Dan:''' You sure got big, Choza.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Choza:''' And I'm about to get ''bigger''.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut
* FacialMarkings
* GeniusBruiser: Head of his family, pretty competent in combat
* GentleGiant: When off-duty. ''Specially'' seen [[spoiler:in a flashback where he explains the Ino/Shika/Cho trio story to little Chouji.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: Is severely injured and believed to be dead after protecting Choji from Pain. He does get better, though.
* {{Kevlard}}
* PapaWolf
* RollingAttack
* SimpleStaff
* SizeShifter
* TakingTheBullet: Does this for Choji in the fight against Pain. To Choji's relief, he survives the attack. [[spoiler:He also blocks the tail of a faux Kurama ''with his body'', and later blocks an attack from Asuma, getting burned in the process.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Choza is ''not'' pleased with Choji when he refuses to hit the zombiefied Asuma, and calls him out.]]

[[folder:The Hyuuga clan]]

Tropes applying to the Hyuga Clan as a whole:
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Due to having...
** ProphetEyes: Inverted with Byakugan.
** HellishPupils: Also inverted: they have no pupils.
* MagicalEye: The Byakugan's powers include...
** AuraVision
** XRayVision
** VeinOVision: To see the chakra points.
** SuperSenses: And other abilities such as 360 degree vision and telescopic view.
* MinorMajorCharacter: The Byakugan is part of the "Three Great Doujutsu" along with the Sharingan and Rinnegan, but it has no relevance in comparison to the other two Doujutsu, and the Clans which are connected to them.
* SupernaturalMartialArts: The Gentle Fist which provides examples of...
** PowerPalms
** PressurePoint
** TouchOfDeath
* KimonoIsTraditional: Standard outfit for pretty much every member of the clan we see is a plain kimono unless they are in uniform or training.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: All the above provided by these.

!!Hiashi Hyuuga
->Voiced By: Eizou Tsuda (JP), John Demita (EN), José Luis Orozco (Latin America)
Hiashi Hyūga (日向ヒアシ, Hyūga Hiashi) is the head of the Hyūga clan. He is also the father of Hinata and Hanabi Hyūga, as well as the older twin brother of the late Hizashi Hyūga, and the paternal uncle of Neji Hyūga. Born as the eldest of the twin sons of the former leader, the ruthless traditions of the clan and a tragedy that happened later would make him very, ''very'' bitter...
[[spoiler: in the Ninja War arc, he is placed in the First Division alongside Darui, Choza Akimichi and Tenten, and ends up having to fight his brother, who has been brought back as a zombie via Edo Tensei.]]
* AbusiveParent: To Hinata. Things have started to get better now, though, if [[spoiler: his talk with Edo-Tensei!Hizashi]] is a good sign.
** ParentsAsPeople
* [[spoiler: AintTooProudToBeg: When it came to gaining Neji's forgiveness.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As the invading Sound ninja painfully find out.
* BarrierWarrior: His Kaiten is MUCH more powerful then Neji's.
* CainAndAbel: With his twin younger brother Hizashi, due to the inner politics of the Hyuuga clan. [[spoiler: Subverted later.]]
* {{Flanderization}}
* GeometricMagic: Is in charge of the Caged Bird Seal.
* JustOneMan: Near the end of the Invasion of Konoha arc, around 20 Sand Ninjas surround him and remark that he's just one man. Hiashi then defeats them all with a very large Rotation jutsu.
* KneelBeforeFrodo: Goes on his knees and begs for Neji's forgiveness when he tells him the truth over his father's death.
* LethalHarmlessPowers: His Kaiten (a defensive spinning technique) can send the attackers flying with lethal force.
* PapaWolf: He did kill that Cloud Ninja who attempted to capture Hinata.
* SecretKeeper: Hid what truly happened [[spoiler: with Hizashi]], in hopes to [[spoiler: tell Neji when he was OlderAndWiser.]]
** NiceJobBreakingItHero: Had he been truthful earlier, maybe [[spoiler: Neji would've been somewhat less of a bitter JerkAss]]... [[JustifiedTrope Then again]], if he had been truthful from the start, [[spoiler: Neji wouldn't have believed him at first]].
* ScrewDestiny: [[spoiler: What he tells to the Edo-tensei-revived!Hizashi in 526. also a CrowningMomentofAwesome ''and'' Heartwarming, as he also adds how [[BrotherSisterTeam Hinata and Neji are fighting together]].]]
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: When [[spoiler: he tells Neji what truly happened with Hizashi]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TookALevelInKindness

!!Hizashi Hyuuga
->Voiced By: Kazuaki Ito (JP), John Demita (EN), José Luis Orozco (Latin America)
Twin younger brother of Hiashi, and a member of the branch house. Very, ''very'' bitter towards his older twin because of that, and presumed to have been sacrificed for Hiashi after a terrible incident. [[spoiler: Things weren't so black and white in the end: Hizashi willingly sacrificed himself for his brother, as his way to ScrewDestiny.]]

[[spoiler: Resurrected by Kabuto via Edo Tensei. Now he's fighting Hiashi himself.]]
* AbusiveParents: It's revealed in the [[AllThereInTheManual databook]] the Hyuuga Elder who he conspired with to be killed in his brother's place was Hiashi and Hizashi's father.
* CainAndAbel: With his twin older brother Hiashi, due to the inner politics of the Hyuuga clan. [[spoiler: Subverted later: he ''was'' bitter, but deep down still cared.]]
* FacialMarkings: The branch house mark on his forehead. Also a sort-of leash on him, as it can be activated and cause him horrible pain if he's suspected of being rebellious.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: What his death truly was, since he ''willingly'' died for Hiashi.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler: Subverted now. Damn it, Kabuto.]]
* RestrainingBolt: The seal on his forehead.
* ScrewDestiny / YouCantFightFate: A constant theme for him and Neji. [[spoiler: He died willingly to prove the first one, then said the latter when revived and Hiashi replied with the first.]]

!!Hanabi Hyuuga
->Voiced By: Creator/KiyomiAsai (JP), Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey (EN), Alondra Hidalgos (Latin America)

Hinata's younger sister. Other than that, little is known about her. Eventually we learn that [[spoiler:her desire to be acknowledged caused her to awaken the legendary second level of Byakugan: the Buddhist Byakugan.]]
* [[spoiler:BigDamnHeroes: Saves Rock Lee from Itachi by using the Nirvana Rotation.]]
* [[spoiler:ExoticEyeDesigns: The Buddhist Byakugan.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Expy}}: Has started to act exactly like Naruto in the Ninja War arc.]]
* InformedAbility: Was said to be stronger than Hinata, but we haven't seen her in action.
* ParentalFavoritism: Hiashi preferred her to Hinata due to having more raw talent and a better Byakugan.
* SatelliteCharacter: Only appeared twice.
* SiblingRivalry: With Hinata. However, [[OneeSama she seems to have great respect for her sister]], scoffing at the idea of Neji being stronger than her.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: The video games peg her with one.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Like her older sister, but in different ways. Hinata is more about the humility and developing the core of steel, while Hanabi is more about wielding power in the obedience to her elders.

[[folder:The Uchiha Clan]]
Tropes that apply to the Uchiha Clan as a whole.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy
* BigScrewedUpFamily: [[UpToEleven Big time.]]
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Sharingan, especially when they get into their Mangekyo stages.
* TheGift
* HighCollarOfDoom
* InTheBlood[=/=]AlwaysChaoticEvil: Tobi calls them "a clan destined for revenge". For generations, they've been killing their best friends and siblings for power. As long as they existed, they continued a feud reaching back centuries. The few decent Uchihas ([[spoiler: Itachi and Shisui]]) can be counted with the fingers on a single hand. A lot of [[spoiler: Itachi]]'s suffering comes from the fact that he knows that his parents and brother are rotten and need to be stopped, but they're still his ''family'', so he's torn up with guilt because of what he had to do to them.
* {{Its All About Me}}: With the exception of Itachi, Shisui and Obito
* MagicalEye: The [[RedEyesTakeWarning Sharingan]] which ([[InformedAttribute supposedly]] only occurs in select members of the clan) gave them the following abilities...
** AuraVision
** CombatClairvoyance
** HypnoticEyes
** MegaManning
* PlayingWithFire: Being able to use the Grand Fireball Jutsu is used as a coming of age test.
* TheProudElite: Emphasis on "Proud".
* SmugSuper
* SuperPowerfulGenetics
* {{Tall Dark and Snarky}}

!!Izuna Uchiha
* HandicappedBadass: Lost his eyes to Madara, and despite ''having no eyes, he went on to die on the battle field.'' Unfortunately his blindness was what killed him.
* PosthumousCharacter
* RavenHairIvorySkin
* RedHerring: Like Danzo and Obito, he was suspected to be Tobi's true identity.
* SiblingTeam: His hobby was training with Madara.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Resembled an older, less angry Sasuke.

!!Shisui Uchiha

Itachi's best friend and role model, who appeared to have committed suicide when his duties as a shinobi became too much, though the Uchihas suspected that he was murdered by Itachi. Itachi confirms this to Sasuke, revealing that he murdered him to gain the Mangekyo Sharingan. [[spoiler: This turns out to have been a half-lie, as Shisui ''did'' kill himself, but it was with Itachi's assistance and done specifically so that Itachi could gain the Mangekyo to kill off the clan and prevent war. He himself had an unusually powerful Mangekyo, though who died in order for him to obtain it is unknown. Itachi claims that Naruto has inherited Shisui's will.]]

* BigBrotherMentor: To Itachi.
* [[spoiler:ChekhovsGunman: His eyes were later used by Itachi and Danzo.]]
** [[spoiler:ChekhovsBoomerang]]
* ExoticEyeDesigns: The Sharingan. [[spoiler: And his own [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110803165333/naruto/images/8/81/Mangeky%C5%8D_Sharingan_Shisui.svg Mangekyo Sharingan.]]]]
* [[spoiler:EyeScream: Danzo stole one of his eyes. He gave the other to Itachi.]]
* FlashStep: Was said to be a master of the Body Flicker technique.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Killed himself to make sure that Itachi would succeed in killing off their clan and prevent them from starting up another war.]]
* [[spoiler:MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Itachi's last memory of Shisui is him giving advice and entrusting Itachi to keep Konoha safe...[[http://images.wikia.com/naruto/images/4/4f/Shisui_no_right_eye.png with one eye freshly gauged out.]] What's more, he then ''calmly pulls out the other one and [[http://images.wikia.com/naruto/images/9/9b/Shisui_giving_his_eye.png hands it to him]]''.]]
* MasterOfIllusion: He's great even by Uchiha standards.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "Shisui of the Body Flicker" (or "Shisui the Teleporter" in the English dub) does not sound like an easy enemy to face.
* [[spoiler:NoodleIncident: We're never actually told ''how'' Danzo managed to get his eye, just that it happened shortly before his death.]]
* PosthumousCharacter
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Many fans find him very attractive, despite only appearing in two panels.
* [[spoiler:ThanatosGambit: He committed suicide to give Itachi the Mangekyo Sharingan so that he would be strong enough to wipe out the Uchihas and protect Konoha from being thrown into another war. It worked.]]
* [[spoiler:ReverseMole: Was ordered by the Uchiha clan to keep tabs on Itachi when he began to act strangely, but he was on Itachi and the Village's side, and attempted to prevent the coup via genjutsu, but had one of his eyes stolen by Danzo. Ultimately he had Itachi help him commit suicide, so that way he could gain the Mangekyo Sharingan to aid him in his mission]].
* WorthyOpponent: May have been this to Ao, who distinctly remembers his unique chakra "color" despite his being dead for more than eight years.

!!Fugaku and Mikoto Uchiha
->Voice for Fugaku: HiroshiMatsumoto (JP, episode 84), KenjiHamada (JP, Current), Creator/WallyWingert (EN, episode 84), Doug Stone (EN, Current)

->Voice for Mikoto: Emi Sagara (JP), KariWahlgren (EN)

* BrokenPedestal
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Fugaku's worn-looking face suggests that leadership of the Uchiha was very stressful business, [[spoiler:which would explain why he didn't begrudge Itachi when the latter turned on them.]] His eldest son inherited these characteristics from his father, which probably attests to the latter becoming a BrokenAce later in life.
* ChildhoodFriends: Mikoto was apparently tight with [[spoiler:Kushina Uzumaki]] in their youth, and they were best friends.
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: [[spoiler:Played with, as their deaths were ordered because of their planned hostile takeover of the Leaf Village.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity]]
* GenerationXerox: [[spoiler:Like their mothers, Naruto and Sasuke became best friends (though their relationship was more VitriolicBestBuds than not).]]
* ParentalFavoritism: Fugaku preferred Itachi, Mikoto favored Sasuke. [[spoiler: Turns out, Fugaku loved Sasuke enough that his last request was that Itachi take care of him. Conversely, Mikoto's last words were a gentle reassurance to Itachi that they both still loved him and fully understood his decision.]]
* PosthumousCharacter
* SilkHidingSteel and YamatoNadeshiko: Mikoto was a jounin, but it's hard to tell from her disposition.
* SoProudOfYou: [[spoiler: Their final words to their son Itachi before he kills them.]]
* TreacheryCoverUp: [[spoiler:They were executed as traitors by Itachi's hands to prevent a CivilWar and in the name of peace and the Leaf Village.]]

!!Obito Uchiha
->Voiced by: Sōsuke Komori (JP), VicMignogna (EN)

Kakashi's team member from his childhood, Obito Uchiha was the BlackSheep of the Uchiha clan with a reputation for being perpetually late and untalented. [[spoiler:His death caused Rin to become Tobi.]]
* AbortedDeclarationOfLove: Obito decides against telling Rin that he is in love with her before he died.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: A flashback shows Kakashi was this for him...over and over and over...
* BlackSheep: To his clan.
** WhiteSheep: All in all, he was one of the most decent, caring, and noble members of the named Uchiha revealed in the series, [[spoiler: especially when you find out the truth about the massacre.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: Doesn't even need to say it. He shows it for both of his teammates, especially with regards to his HeroicSacrifice.
* {{Determinator}}
* FreudianTrio: He was [[TheMcCoy The Id]] on Team Minato.
* GogglesDoSomething: [[CaptainObvious They protect your eyes.]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: A rare ''vertical'' example, as the entire right side of his body was smashed by the boulder.
* HeroicSacrifice: By saving Kakashi from being crushed by a falling boulder.
* HotBlooded: Obito is a lot like Naruto, even in appearance.
* IdiotHero
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: While dying, he's extremely calm for having half his body crushed under a giant rock.
** GoOutWithASmile
* PlayingWithFire
* PosthumousCharacter
* [[spoiler:RedHerring: Hinted to be Tobi, but he wasn't. In reality, Tobi was '''''Rin'''''.]]
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: His. Biggest. Trait.
* TakingTheBullet: Kakashi did this for Obito, which got his eye cut out; Obito returned the favor, resulting in his death.

[[folder:[[spoiler:Madara Uchiha]]]]


One of the original founders of the Uchiha Clan. Before the beginning of the series, during the "Clan wars", he was TheAce of the Uchiha Clan, bitter enemies of the Senju Clan. Both clans were used as main weapons by the Daimyos of the era. It got to the point that he had to [[NeverLiveItDown take/ask for his brother's eyes to]] [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique be able to face Hashirama Senju, the greatest [[Ninja shinobi]] of his era]]. In the end they decided to unite the two Clans into a single Village, creating the tradition "One Nation, one Village" and while at first all was good, he feared that the Senju would subjugate the Uchiha as its servant. This belief was poorly received by his Clan. They eventually sold him out, so that he could not break the peace between Clans and cast him out of the Uchiha Clan forever.

He returned years later commanding the Kyuubi with thirst for vengeance but was [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice defeated by the First Hokage]] and [[spoiler:his wife Mito Uzumaki, who became the first Jinchuriki. Madara survived and disappeared for several decades. Then he rescued Obito Uchiha from and later died leaving him to carry on his plan.]]

[[spoiler:After being resurrected with Edo Tensei, he proceeds to CurbStompBattle the Kages, and even manages to escape Edo Tensei's deactivation. He decides to stop playing around, and after finishing the curb stomping off panel, he [[DynamicEntry crashes]] Obito's fight with Naruto, Kakashi, Guy, and B.]]
* AlwaysSecondBest: To the First Hokage, Yugi Motou. [[spoiler:But because him and Yugi are on a ''completely different level'' when compared to others he ''[[SmugSuper brags]]'' about being second best!]]
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: [[spoiler:UpToEleven. Since being revived, he's done nothing but go on and on about how weak his opponents are compared to himself as well as the 1st. Though, to be fair, he [[AwesomeEgo is kind of kicking their asses.]]]]
* AttackReflector: His paper fan can be used to bounce back attacks, even ungodly powerful ones.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: When he led the Kaiba, and was the 2nd strongest shinobi in the First Great Ninja War after Yugi.
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: Along with many of the deceased seen in the story. And then broke free of Kabuto's jutsu, giving Konoha yet another Uchiha headache to deal with.]]
* '''{{Badass}}''': He is quite possibly the most powerful shinobi ever, barring the Sage, bordering on being an {{in-universe}} MemeticBadass. He combines several already powerful techniques (EMS, [[spoiler:Rinnegan, [[GreenThumb Mokuton]], Biju control, and four-armed, colossal Susanoo]]); even his name alone, [[spoiler:used by Tobi,]] was enough to toss the world into panic. He considers anything less than [[spoiler:''all five Kages'']] to be an "inadequate challenge", and that's [[spoiler: before revealing he wasn't fighting seriously]]!
** He suggests [[spoiler: that the only one who could stop him is the First Hokage, who is no longer alive. He doesn't bother reminding everyone that since he now has the Rinnegan ''and'' Hashirama's powers as well as now being an invincible zombie, even the First might not be able to stop him.]]
* [[spoiler:BaitAndSwitchBoss: Everything in the series pointed to Seto as the BigBad, until it's revealed that ''he was the unidentified corpse'' that was revived by Kabuto. The revived body however seems to acknowledge Tobi and seems to be aggravated their plan has interference in the form of Kabuto, so he might actually ''become'' the BigBad after all]].
* [[spoiler: BetterThanNew]]: [[spoiler: Kabuto comments that he used Edo Tensei to make him even stronger than when he was in his prime]].
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler:Seto is responsible for the Kaiba Clan's hatred going completely haywire to the point of Konoha's paranoia. If more is revealed about which of Tobi's actions were really Seto's doing, he could become this even more. Given that he is on his way to address Tobi directly, he may even become the TrueFinalBoss and / or the BigBad once more.]]
* [[spoiler: BodyHorror]]: [[spoiler:He's got the '''First Hokage's face''' ''on his chest''!]]
* [[spoiler: BondVillainStupidity]]: [[spoiler: His utter refusal to kill any of the Kages.]]
** [[spoiler:Well, before he actually decided to ''[[CurbStompBattle rape]]'' them like they were Genin. No, he actually raped them. And Gaara is going to have his kid.]]
* [[spoiler: CameBackStrong]]: [[spoiler:A villainous example. He was [[TheUndead resurrected]] in a younger form, close to the prime of his life, but he kept the modifications that he made to his body ([[GreenThumb Mokuton]], [[LivingBattery Yugi's DNA]], and [[GameBreaker the Rinnegan!]]) after he faked his death at the Valley of the End. Combined with the fact that he now has [[CompleteImmortality infinite energy reserves and an immortal body]], he can now spam his [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Dangerous Forbidden Techniques]] without worrying about it affecting his stamina or lifespan.]]
* CassandraTruth: "The Motou will subjugate the Kaiba like a lowly servant". Guess what happened?
** Possibly overlaps with SelfFulfillingProphecy, given the implication that Seto's own betrayal may be what ultimately caused the rift that led to the Uchiha's subjugation to begin with.
* [[spoiler:ColonyDrop]]: [[spoiler: Attempted to throw a hug piece of land onto the Shinobi Army, but Onoki stopped it just in time]]
* CombatCompliment: Seems to love issuing these.
* TheCorrupter / EvilMentor: [[spoiler: It's pretty much believable that rescuing Rin and bringing her back to shape into the Tobi we all loathe could be traced to him.]]
* [[spoiler: CurbStompBattle: Toys around with all 5 kage AT ONCE, outsmarting them time after time. They only manage to last a while because Seto, by his own admission, felt no need to get serious. The end to the battle happens off panel, though we are shown what's left of the kage after Seto finished with them. Needless to say, it speaks for itself.]]
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong]]
** [[spoiler:Though it's hinted that he lived MUCH longer than was previously believed. Long enough to know who Nagato was at least.]]
*** [[spoiler:Hell, he lived long enough to know who Rin AKA Tobi was, and SAVED HER from the pineapple.]]
* [[spoiler:TheDragon]]: With [[spoiler:Nagato]] sealed away [[spoiler:Itachi turned sides]], and [[spoiler:Mu mere moments from being defeated]], Kabuto brings him out as a trump card.
** [[spoiler: DragonInChief: In the sense that he knew the hand signs to perform the Edo Tensei jutsu and, though Kabuto was defeated before finding this out, this meant that he could take control of his body at anytime he chose, and could even refuse to be un-summoned. In other words, he only let Kabuto ''think'' he was his Dragon.]]
* TheDreaded: Even decades after his death, his name alone is enough to make all the great villages ally against you. [[spoiler:Tobi, aka Rin, takes advantage of this and pretty much goads the entire world into a war against him.]]
* EvilCounterpart: One might examine Seto's character and find he is this to [[spoiler: Itachi. Both were born into their clans as prodigies, both were in constant competition with their brothers and both were torn between their loyalties to their clan and their village. Their main difference is in their ideologies; both are extreme, but also polar opposites; Seto is a BloodKnight who believes war is inevitable, and Itachi is a KnightTemplar who sought to avert war at any cost.]]
** [[spoiler:They also differed in the choice they made. Seto chose the clan, Itachi chose the village. However, had Seto chosen differently, then Itachi wouldn't have had to make his choice and the clan would probably still be intact.]]
* EvilGloating: Constantly.
* [[spoiler:EvilMentor]]: [[spoiler:To Tobi/Rin.]]

* GeniusBruiser

* [[spoiler: IAmNotLeftHanded: Every time the Kages gain an advantage over him, Seto finds a way to NoSell it.]]
* InstantArmor: Susanoo
* InvincibleVillain: WordOfGod confirms this. [[spoiler: He is currently literally this; not only is he a nigh-unkillable Edo zombie who happens to be perhaps the strongest ninja on the field, he actually hijacked the Edo Tensei itself so neither Kabuto nor anyone else is controlling him anymore, or can.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: After his clan betrayed him.
* JerkAss: [[spoiler:Even before his HeelFaceTurn, [[EvenEvilHasStandards not even Kurama could stand him]]. Seto Kaiba is pretty much the biggest dickhead in the entire series, and that says ''a lot''.]]
* JustToyingWithThem: [[spoiler:As of his resurrection, he is easily the second strongest ninja of all time after the Sage. He could easily wipe out the five kage, but just ends up playing with them until his enjoyment is ruined, after which he proceeds to CurbStompBattle them off panel and crash Rin's party.]]
* MagicalEye: In addition to the [[RedEyesTakeWarning Sharingan]] above he has the Eternal Magenkyou Sharingan. [[spoiler:He also bears the Rinnegan and with it the powers of the six paths.]] They grant the [[SuperPowerLottery following abilities]]...
** [[spoiler:EnergyAbsorption: Through the Preta Path.]]

* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:To Rin and Nagato.]]
* {{Narcissist}}
* NietzscheWannabe: He'd have to be, if he agrees with [[spoiler: Tobi's]] Plan. The Plan may very well be his since he did confirm to Kabuto that [[spoiler:he and Tobi worked together]].
** [[spoiler:Shown to have been EXTREMELY nihilistic and cynical in his later years. Rin meets him as a bitter old man who hates pretty much everything.]]
* PaperFanOfDoom: [[spoiler:Rin kept it for him while maintaining his identity]].
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler:After his resurrection, explicitly deployed as one.]] He didn't disappoint, going to 3rd highest bodycount [[spoiler:(after the multiplied white Zetsu and Pain)]] over just two chapters. Some time after that, he [[spoiler:used his Susanoo to slice through an entire mountain range, ALONG with the giant meteorites he called down himself]].
* PlayingWithFire: He created the strongest Fire technique so far without any strain, as a form of greeting.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Of the HeManWomanHater type. As if Kishi thought that [[{{Jerkass}} this guy wasn't enough of an asshole before...]]
* {{Pride}}: Big time. Kaiba in general don't have a reputation of humility, but Seto really takes the cake. When finally deciding to [[spoiler: unleash his full Susanoo vs the five Kages, he takes the time to destroy a mountain range for no discernable reason other than showing off. He wasn't even aiming at the Kages]].
* [[spoiler:TheReasonYouSuckSpeech]]: Gives one to [[spoiler:Tsunade]] after he finds out [[spoiler:she is Yugi's descendant]].
** [[spoiler:Also gave one to the Kyuubi in a flashback, and a more general one to the current Kages. He pretty much thinks that everyone other than himself and the 1st Hokage sucks. And possibly Naruto, who he found himself vaguely impressed by.]]
* RedHerring: [[spoiler:He is not the BigBad, But he does know him]].
** BiggerBad: [[spoiler:In fact, it's hinted that the current BigBad is/was his subordinate and that the current EvilPlan was Seto's to begin with.]]
* TheRival: To Yugi, during the Clan Wars. It went on after the Leaf's fondation, since he competed with (and lost to) him to become the first Hokage.
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan: Was trapped in a small chamber due to having to use the Gedo Mazo as a life support system.]]
* SinisterScythe: His weapon of choice, [[spoiler:used as a cane in his old age.]]
* SmugSuper: [[spoiler:He talks down to his current opponents because he's so far above everyone who's fought so far]].
* SoreLoser: Good grief.
* StoryBreakerPower: Of the OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow variety. [[spoiler:He has the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, Rinnegan, and Wood Release powers from the First Hokage. Among his many ridiculously overpowered abilities, he can create clones every bit as powerful as him without the drawback of being {{One Hit Point Wonder}}s like shadow clones, a Susanoo that is as tall as a skyscraper and can cut a mountain in half, the ability to '''spam''' {{Colony Drop}}s, the ability to absorb pretty much any attack, and once he gets his fan back can reflect pretty much any attack. Oh, and he is currently a zombie bound to no one but himself with limitless chakra and FromASingleCell regeneration, which means the only way he will ever die is if someone can hold him still long enough to seal his soul. Hell, the author has outright admitted he has ''no weaknesses''.]] To say nothing less than a miracle will stop him is probably an understatement.
* SuperpowerLottery: The Rinnegan, Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Wood release, unlimited chakra and an immortal body that regenerates to be precise. Even his regular fire techniques put most kekkei genkais to shame.
* StrawMisogynist: His biggest reason to think that [[spoiler:Tsunade]] is weak is that she's a woman.
* StrawNihilist: [[spoiler:Guess where Tobi (aka known as Rin) got this attitude.]]
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: His response to the "Will of Fire".
--> Seto: ''"You can't defeat power with will."''
* ThanatosGambit: He accounted for his own death. [[spoiler:His intent was to have Pain resurrect him, but since Naruto foiled that, he gets brought back as a zombie instead.]]
* TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler: Attempting this with the Fourth Battalion. See ColonyDrop.]]
* TrashTalk: Can pretty much always be found belittling his current opponents or pretty much whoever is nearby.
** [[spoiler: His current topic of choice is how inferior he feels the current Kages are to him and the 1st Hokage.]]
** [[spoiler: In a flashback he was shown do this to even the nine tails, telling him (more or less) that he's stupid and needs the Kaiba Clan to give him purpose.]]
* [[spoiler: TheUndead: Well since he's free of Kabuto's PeoplePuppets jutsu, his current status is this.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Deconstructed. He was fanatical loyal to the Kaibas, to the point of [[spoiler:stealing/asking for his brothers' eyes so he could face Hashirama in their War]]. This extended to also fanatically fighting for the Uchiha dignity to the point of [[spoiler:being banished from his Clan and the Village that he helped create]]. Needless to say, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge he didn't take the news well]].
** Should be noted that most of this comes from a proven UnreliableNarrator, so it could all be bunk.
* {{Understatement}}: Only Seto can under-sell [[spoiler: pretty much massacring the five Kage]] in that cool and bored demeanor of stating things:
--> [[spoiler:'''Naruto''': What happened to all the others!?!]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Seto''': Who knows. They're probably.....not okay. *cut to shot of the kage all lying in pools of their own blood*]]
* WalkingSpoiler: ''JESUS CHRIST!''
* WalkingTheEarth: For years after being banished.
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: If he's being honest about his plans. Seto claims he wants to create a world where there is only peace and love, and everyone is a winner.]]
* WorldsStrongestMan: Considered this during his era alongisde Yugi, though since [[spoiler: his resurrection, he has integrated his DNA into his body]], making him the one of the most powerful shinobi to walk the earth. To the point [[spoiler:that he needs the Five Kages to face him at all]].
** Let's face it-not even Nagato or Tobi could possibly hope to trounce the Five Kages with such ease. The man is pretty much the second strongest shinobi of all time, right after the Sage of the Six Paths, who was a PhysicalGod. [[spoiler:He's even worse the Sage when it comes to threat level, considering the fact he's pretty much immortal now.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Considered Hashirama as one.
-->'''Seto''': Hashirama "Wood Style" Senju... the future First Hokage, the man who stood at the top of the ninja world and the person that I respected most.
** It's to the point where you can consider it FoeYay, considering how much drones on and on about how everyone except him and Hashirama (and maybe Naruto), sucks.
* WouldntHurtAChild: Played with. Onoki asks him why didn't he display this much power when he last fought him, he replies with "Which adult would go serious on a child?"

Tsunade's first apprentice and her late fiancé Dan's niece. Travels along with her while trying to curb her gambling habits. After Tsunade becomes Hokage, she serves as her secretary.

In ''Shippuden'', she begins to doubt Tsunade for sending Naruto out on dangerous missions despite Akatsuki's attempts to capture him, but eventually regains faith in her. [[spoiler:During the Pain Invasion, she helps those trying to deciminate information from one of Pain's bodies and has her soul removed by Human path Pain, but is later resurrected. Later she is placed in charge of the Logistical Support and Medical Division for the Fourth Great Ninja War]].
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]
* BreathWeapon: Her poison mist jutsu.
* ChildrenRaiseYou: Apparently, she does this for Tsunade
* ChristmasCake: In an omake, she drunkenly confesses that she's jealous of Kurenai for having a boyfriend and maybe even husband while she is too busy working for Tsunade to find one for herself. Unfortunately, Tsunade happens to hear it. HarsherInHindsight when you remember that this omake happens few episodes before said boyfriend dies, and the death had already happened in the manga.

Mizuki is a childhood friend and was a former fellow Ninja Academy instructor of Iruka Umino. He later becomes the first antagonist of the series. At the series' start, he tricked Naruto Uzumaki into stealing Konoha's Scroll of Seals, which contains a number of forbidden jutsu. He convinced Naruto to do it by appearing sympathetic towards him, and told him that it would help him graduate from the Academy, but, in actuality, he despised Naruto. While he intended to steal the scroll from Naruto and to use Naruto as a scapegoat in the meantime, Iruka eventually figured out what he was up to and quickly caught up with Naruto and Mizuki. Realizing that it would be harder to get the scroll from Naruto if he teamed up with Iruka, he decided that he had to get Naruto to not trust Iruka. Mizuki then revealed to Naruto the truth about his past and why the village despised him: that he is the container for the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox.

As Naruto was frozen in shock by this knowledge, Mizuki used this to his advantage by hurling a giant shuriken at the frightened Naruto. Iruka jumped in at the last second to block the shuriken with his own back, wounding him. Later, because of Iruka's kind, caring words and selfless action, Naruto had the courage to use the Multiple Shadow Clone Technique he had learned from the scroll to defeat Mizuki as punishment for harming Iruka, which inevitably greatened Mizuki's hatred for Naruto.
* AdaptationExpansion: They gave him a filler arc in the anime, which was infamous both for Mizuki's tiger transformation and being the first of a long, ''long'', '''long''' series of fillers.
* AdaptationalBadass: Some fanfics make him stronger.
* AmbitionIsEvil
* BitchInSheepsClothing: He seemed kind towards Naruto at first, then drops the act when the Scroll of Seals is in sight.
* [[spoiler:BroughtDownToNormal: Tsunade saves him after he's defeated, but the damage his body suffered will prevent him from ever being a shinobi again.]]
* DrivenByEnvy: Towards Iruka, since he envied the positive attention his childhood friend received.
* EvilCounterpart: To Iruka.
* HateSink: For goodness sake, the man's least favorite food is ''ramen''! How much more offensive to Naruto can be possibly be? On a more serious note, Mizuki is one of very few characters who can't really elict ''any'' sympathy from the audience, even if he's overshadowed by the more major villains, because his motivations and goals are so petty in comparison. Even Orochimaru had a tragic StartOfDarkness that took many years to be completed.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The filler stated he was in cahoots with Orochimaru who gave him a recipe for a potion that would increase his chakra. It did, giving him a humanoid tiger appearance and he bats Naruto and Iruka around a bit. But after the two manage to beat him, the potion turns him into a withered old man as it was highly unstable. Tsunade surmises that Mizuki was just another test subject for Orochimaru meaning he got screwed over twice. What's more he can no longer be a ninja now due to it. And for a real kick in the teeth, Iruka tells Mizuki that Naruto far surpasses him in terms of strength.
* JerkAss: The first onscreen one.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Trusting Orochimaru to keep his word ultimately cost him dearly.
* ManipulativeBastard
* TheResenter: Towards Iruka.
* SequelEpisode: His brief reappearance in a filler arc qualifies.
* StarterVillain
* StartOfDarkness: It's unclear if he was ever a decent human being (his lover believes he was, he claims he wasn't), but his resentment for Iruka turned any feelings of genuine camaraderie sour until the ambition and malice was all that was left.
* TookALevelInBadass: Until he got a serious HoistByHisOwnPetard.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Orochimaru at first, truly believing him to be a great ninja (if only for how powerful he was) and refused to believe Naruto when he told him otherwise. It isn't till he's a victim of Oro's manipulations himself that he finally gets the message and by that point it costs him greatly.
* UnwittingPawn

->Voiced By: Shiho Hisajima (JP), LauraBailey (EN)

A seemingly intelligent young female ninja working in Konoha's cryptography unit. She helps Shikamaru, Naruto, and Kakashi figure out the code Jiraiya left before his death. Later, she accompanies Shikamaru and his father Shikaku when Pain attacks, and survives the destruction of Konoha.

Her most notable trait is her huge crush on Shikamaru, who is completely oblivious about it. See Hinata and Naruto.

* AdjustingYourGlasses: By the side.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Temari and Ino's Veronicas.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Shikamaru breaks his leg while protecting her when [[spoiler:Pain destroys most of Konoha]].
* DitzyGenius: Pretty competent at her job, hopeless in anything else
* HotLibrarian: More [[{{Moe}} cute]] than hot, but still.
* LoveAtFirstSight: When seeing Shikamaru.
* LuminescentBlush
* {{Meganekko}}
* MessyHair
* NerdGlasses
* TheDanza: She is voiced by Shiho Hisajima.
* ThirdOptionLoveInterest: Compared to Temari and Ino.

!!Fu and Torune
Danzo's bodyguards for the Kage Summit, and the best operatives in Root. Fu is from the Yamanaka clan and Torune is from Aburame clan. [[spoiler:Fu attempts to posses Ao's body in an effort to take his Byakugan, but fails thanks to Fifth Mizukage's efforts. Both get [[WorfEffect worfed]] by Tobi, but not before Torune infects his right arm, forcing him to sit out on the fight between Sasuke and Danzo. Later on they are unceremoniously killed off as a demonstration of Edo Tensei's preperation rituals.]]
* AndIMustScream: Fu's variation of the Yamanaka clan's GrandTheftMe invokes this, by placing the target's body in a [[PerversePuppet booby trapped puppet]], while Fu gains control of the target's body. When he used this on Ao, he immediately attempted to [[EyeScream stab out his eye]] and when that didn't work, attempted to [[OffWithHisHead cut off his head]].
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Both of them figure out how Tobi's MadeOfAir powers work after 3 minutes of fighting him. Tobi even compliments them on it.
* BeeBeeGun: Torune's bugs differ from the rest of his clan's being that they are nano-sized and capable of destroying target's cells in addition to draining chakra.
* EliteMooks: They last slightly longer than most examples, but ultimately they are this.
* InformedAbility: Given [[BigBad who]] they were fighting against, this is slightly justified, but they don't come off as more skilled than any other jounin we've seen.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Fu is a very skilled sensor, though not in the same league as Karin.
* OddNameOut: Their names don't fit their respective clans' naming patterns. Justified because Root typically assigns a CodeName to their members.
* PoisonousPerson: Torune, via his bugs.
* PutOnABus: Aren't seen after the Danzo fight until the Start of the war arc.
* TouchOfDeath: Torune's bugs are distributed this way.
* SatelliteCharacter: Aside from being Danzo's gaurds and having unique twists on their respective clan's techniques, they really don't contribute much apart from being [[spoiler:fuel for an Edo Tensei demonstration]].
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Both are introduced with little to no characterization, quickly beaten and then killed off.

* LoveTriangle: Obito was in love with Rin, who had feelings for Kakashi.
* TheMedic: She was extremely skilled for her age, being able to preform a complex eye transplant with minimal tools at thirteen.
** HealingHands
* [[spoiler:MindRape: Danzo did this to her. It was one of the reasons she became crazy enough to turn into Tobi.]]
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody]]
* NiceGirl: Mediates Kakashi and Obito's arguments without taking sides, despite her feelings for Kakashi. [[spoiler:But she's not so nice as Tobi.]]
* [[spoiler:NotSoSmallRole: She found out about Obito loving her. '''''Everything went straight to hell.''''']]
* ObliviousToLove: She was completely unaware about Obito's feelings for her.
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler:Up until Chapter 599, where she is revealed as Tobi.]]
* {{Protectorate}}: To Obito and Kakashi. [[spoiler:Not anymore.]]
* ShaggyDogStory: Might be the case - she appears to have died not too long after Obito, which would have largely rendered his and Kakashi's rescue of her (and Obito's HeroicSacrifice) pointless, barring Kakashi's acquisition of the Sharingan Eye. [[spoiler:Until you learn that she became Tobi, meaning that her kidnapping basically acts as a catalyst for the series.]]
* [[spoiler:SuperStrength: Destroys the boulder Obito is trapped under. However, by that time he's already dead. She still gets his eye.]]
* [[spoiler:SweetPollyOliver: Impersonates Madara Uchiha and does a damn good job doing it.]]

* DetectEvil
* TheEmpath: According to Tobi.
* FacialMarkings
* GenerationXerox: Both the second and the third [[spoiler: host of Kyuubi]] belong to the same clan she did.
* KissingCousins: Possibly. It was stated that Uzumaki and Senju are distant cousins, but we know nothing about how closely Mito and Hashirama were related themselves.
* {{Odango}}
* ParentalSubstitute: It’s hinted she may have been one to Kushina, because of their clan heritage and girl’s final fate as [[spoiler:Kurama's second jinchuuriki.]]
* SealedEvilInACan: She [[spoiler: sealed the nine-tailed fox inside herself, becoming his first jinchuuriki.]]


The ANBU are EliteMooks that take orders directly from the Kage, performing special high-level missions, such as assassinations and torture.
* EliteMooks: More of an InformedAbility, but there was that case with three [=ANBUs=] stopping one of Pain's summons with an epic elemental jutsu combo.
** There's also [[GreenThumb Yamato]], though it's easy to forget he's actually ANBU. [[BadassTeacher Kakashi]], [[GeniusBruiser Itachi]], and [[BigBad Orochimaru]] are all also former ANBU. The general rule seems to be that if we get to know them, they live up to ANBU's reputation and for the most part the rest are basically there to be [[WorfEffect worfed]].
