- Broken Pedestal: Shiranami turns out to be completely and utterly evil, and intending to use her to gain access to his technique.
- Forehead of Doom: Just look at the picture.
- Hot for Teacher: She seems to like Utakata more than a little, although it's probably one-sided.
- Instant Expert: Utakata deliberately teaches her a high-level technique from the get-go so that she'll get frustrated enough to give up and leave him alone, but she actually succeeds!
- Ms. Fanservice: Filler or not, she is probably the bustiest girl of the series after Tsunade, and the animators are not affraid to emphasize it. When she bares her back to reveal the technique placed inside her, her cleavage is unsubtle to say the least.

- The Bus Came Back: She makes a cameo (with some lines of dialogue no less) in the Shinobi World War arc.
Voiced By: Hiromichi Kogami (JP), Roger Craig Smith (EN)Idate Morino (森乃イダテ, Morino Idate) is the younger brother of Ibiki Morino. Former Ninja of Konoha, he was manipulated by Aoi Rokushou to steal The 2nd Hokage's Raijin Sword (Blade of the Thunder Spirit). After Aoi defect to the Hidden Rain Village, Idate is framed for treason and defects from Konoha. Idate joins the Wasabi family after he's adopted by Jirōchō Wasabi, head of the Wasabi family in the Land of Tea.
- Face-Heel Turn: It's not like he wanted to, but unwanted events leads him to that. Defecting was all he could do.
- Hot-Blooded: Not to the extent of Rock Lee, but still.
- Secret Test of Character: Failed one in the tenth question, having chosen to persist even knowing that if he passed, his teammates would fail.
- Took a Level in Badass: Over the course of his filler arc.
- Undying Loyalty: To Jirōchō for believing in him.
- Unwitting Pawn: To Aoi in much the same way Naruto was to Mizuki, with the prize being becoming a Chunin rather than graduating.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: To Ibiki. Unfortunately, Ibiki doesn't approve of Idate's reasons for or dedication to become a ninja,
who is endowed with some of the Nine-Tailed Fox's chakra.
- Blow You Away: His chakra type is wind.
- Canon Immigrant: Again, not Sora himself, but the idea of "Pseudo-Jinchuriki".

- Not So Different: Like many filler characters, he has a background similar to Naruto's. Unlike many filler characters, he has powers similar to Naruto's.
- One-Winged Angel: The Fox Cloak.
- Razor Wind
- Red Right Hand: Can transform his arm into a grotesque talon by drawing on the Fox's chakra.
Yaoki and Korobi
From the filler episode "Gaara's Bond" they are two Suna shinobi paired with Gaara for a mission. They're both terrified of him since this takes place very, very recently after his Heel-Face Turn and they remember the things he's done. Both of them are puppeteers, though they also can fight hand to hand, as shown when helping fight Gaara's would-be assassins with sticks.
Voice for Yaoki: Takashi Onozuka (JP), Wally Wingert (EN)
Voice for Korobi: Hiroto Torihata (JP), Todd Haberkorn (EN)
- Heel Realization: Naruto, on the way to help Gaara, calls them out on abandoning their "friend". Korobi quietly questions Yaoki about their actions, and they go back and help Gaara, telling him they're his friends. They also reaffirm the statement at the end of the episode.
- Lovable Coward: Not serious cowardliness, per say, since many Sand Shinobi had been scared of Gaara for years and he'd only recently done a Heel-Face Turn as of the time of the episode (and the cowardliness in no way applies to the mission). The loveable part comes after their Heel Realization and they go help Naruto save Gaara.
- Repeat What You Just Said: Gaara says this, and Yaoki quietly apologizes for leaving him to the assassins earlier. Gaara does the "no, before that" and the guys realize what he really wants them to say:Yaoki and Korobi: We're your friends!
- Spanner in the Works: Not hugely, since Naruto was doing most of the work, but them coming back and helping Gaara, while saying he's their friend, clearly unsettled the squad of assassins at least. Their behavior may also have been part of the reason for Gaara's leniency against the people who tried to kill him.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: A very mild version, but the puppets they're carrying are used by the assassin squad against Gaara, and were apparently given to them for that exact purpose since the puppets are perfect suited to trap him. One would of course wonder why the squad wouldn't have carried those themselves (outside of Korobi and Yaoki being closer to Gaara, physically).
Voiced by: Takeharu Onishi (JP), Benjamin Diskin (EN)Condor is an ostrich that Team 7 was once tasked to retrieving. At some point after Sasuke's defection, Condor escapes again, apparently taking several levels in badass in the process.
- Badass: He's an ostrich who taught himself ninjutsu! And he's at least Chunin-level!
- Beware the Silly Ones
- Canon Immigrant: Sort of. So far, he's one of the only filler character to later show up in a canon arc, but only in the anime.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers one to Kotetsu until Izumo shows up.
- Feathered Fiend: Type D.
- Real Birds Wear Pink: He wears three pink ribbons on his neck.
- The Rival: Considers himself to be one to Naruto.
- Talking Animal: Also taught himself how to talk.
- Took a Level in Badass: In between his first and second appearances.

Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone
From the Chikara (Power) arc, it is a clone of Naruto in his Four-Tailed V2 Fox Cloak created when Kabuto accidentally infected Naruto with his Clone Snakes jutsu. The clone rampages, nearly killing Naruto, before being restrained. It later fights Naruto atop the Ama no Hoko and seemingly falls to its death, but returns as a hydra-like monster.

- Killed Off for Real: By Naruto in his imperfect Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.
- Lightning Bruiser: In contrast to Naruto's Four-Tailed V2 form, the Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone is very fast.
- Lowered Monster Difficulty: Compared to Naruto's own Version 2 fox cloak, it seems less powerful as Rock Lee and Might Guy are able to put up a fair fight against it.
- Literally Shattered Lives: Disintegrates after Naruto hits it with a Tailed Beast Rasengan.
- One-Winged Angel: After absorbing more of the Nine-Tails' chakra from Naruto it transforms into a replica of the Nine Tails itself, and after falling into the Ama no Hoko it is transformed into a hydra-like monster.

- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The minute it's activated, it goes on a rampage and destroys Orochimaru's lab before escaping, being captured by the Akatsuki, and reprogrammed to work for them.
- Arm Cannon: It has Gatling guns mounted in its forearms, and its fingers can function as machine guns.
- Do-Anything Robot: Mecha Naruto is stuffed full of a ridiculous amount of weapons, and it's implied that Pain upgraded him with the Asura Path.
- Evil Knockoff/Robot Me: A robotic clone of Naruto.
- Eye Beams: The Naruto Beam.
- Mythology Gag: The general plot of the two-parter was more-or-less ripped right from the Invasion of Pain arc, with bits of the Sasuke Retrieval arc thrown in partway through.
- Powered Armor: It layers itself over Naruto as a parody of Iron Man's armor.
- Primal Stance: Spends a lot of time crawling on all fours even outside of KYUBI Mode.
- Secret Test of Character: Itachi set up a genjutsu that would ally Mecha Naruto with the Leaf village if Naruto still considered Sasuke as a friend.
- Shout-Out: The way Mecha Naruto covers Naruto's body and the HUD that appears are references to the Iron Man series.
- Telescoping Robot: He can extend an absurd array of weapons from his body that logically shouldn't be able to fit inside him, especially considering how he's capable of layering over Naruto.
- Transforming Mecha: He has a vehicle mode and a jet mode.
Shira is a highly experienced Taijutsu user who wasn't a Shinobi because he couldn't use Genjutsu or Nijutsu, until Gaara reformed his father's laws. He goes into the 2nd Chunnin Exam with his team where he wants as possible as Sand Ninja to graduates. He meets and befriend Rock Lee ( Whose similarity is not lost on him. ). He's so skilled that he became Gaara's trainer in Taijutsu.
- All of the Other Reindeer: For once it's not a parallel to Naruto, but to Lee. The laws of The 4th Kazekage prevented anyone not knowing Genjutsu or Ninjutsu to enter Ninja Academy.

- Extreme Doormat: Takes a lot of crap from fellow sand ninjas during the 2nd Chunnin Exam but doesn't retaliate or even get angry.

- Nice Guy: For all the crap he endured, Shira doesn't blame anyone other than himself for the life he lived.
- Training from Hell: Did that on his own. If Gaara's reaction is any indication, it seems to pay off.
