Quotes / Naruto

Naruto

I'm Naruto Uzumaki. I like instant ramen in a cup, and I really like the ramen Iruka Sensei got me at the Ichiraku Noodle Shop, but I hate the three minutes you have to wait after you pour the water in the ramen cup. My hobby is eating different kinds of ramen and comparing them, and my future dream is to be the greatest Hokage! Then the whole village will stop disrespecting me and start treating me like I'm somebody. Somebody important!
(To Zabuza) If I become stronger, does that mean I'll become as cold-hearted as you are!? He threw his life away, and for what? For you and your dream?! You never let him have a dream of his own, but he didn't care, and you just toss him aside like he was nothing... a broken tool. Man, that's so wrong... so wrong!
(To Ibiki) Don't underestimate me! I don't quit and I don't run! You can act tough all you want! You're not gonna scare me off! No way! I don't care if I DO get stuck as a genin for the rest of my life! I'll still be Hokage someday!
I'm not gonna run away, I never go back on my word! That's my nindō: my ninja way!
(To Gaara) It's almost unbearable, isn't it… the feeling of being all alone. I know that feeling; I've been there in that dark and lonely place, but now there are others, other people who mean a lot to me. I care more about them than I do myself, and I won't let anyone hurt them. That's why I'll never give up. I will stop you, even if I have to kill you! They saved me from myself. They rescued me from my loneliness. They were the first to accept me for who I am. They're my friends.
It doesn't matter how strong my opponent is… If he tears off my arms, I'll just kick him dead. If he tears off my legs, I'll bite him dead. If he tears off my head, I'll stare him dead. If he gouges out my eyes, I'll curse him dead… Even if I get chopped into pieces, I'm gonna beat Orochimaru and take my friend Sasuke back once and for all!
Just give up… on trying to make me give up!
(To Sasuke) If you attack the Hidden Leaf, I'll have no choice; I will fight you, don't doubt that… Until that day, save your hatred. Then you can throw all of it right at me. I'm the only one who can handle all that hate! Do you understand? I'm the only one who can fulfill that duty, so I'll bear the burden of your hatred, and I'll die with you! Because you're my friend!
You know, Sasuke, there's a chance our roles could've been reversed.
(To Minato) Don't apologize... I had a lot of hard times growing up as a jinchūriki, but I never blamed you or Dad. I couldn't understand what a parent's love was like because you guys were never there... so I could only guess... But now I know... I live because you and Dad gave your lives for me and filled me up with love before the Nine-Tails was inside me! So here I am, happy and healthy! I'm glad I ended up being your son!
Hinata, do you remember that lesson in class? The one where 'If the world ended, who would you spend your last day with?' I wrote no one's name down because I didn’t know my mother, I didn't know my father, and I didn't have any friends, but now I can clearly say that from now on, I want to spend all and every single one of my days, until I die with you, and only you.
That's why we endure… We are ninja. I will never forget. And anyway, that wound means that my friends are still inside me. The real friends are not the ones I created in my dreams not to get hurt… That would be erasing the real ones. It can work as a curse but I don't care… I want to keep the real Neji here!!

Kakashi

I'm Kakashi Hatake. Things I like and things I hate… I don't feel like telling you that. My dreams for the future… never really thought about it… As for my hobbies… I have lots of hobbies.
Sorry I'm late. I'm afraid I got lost on the road of life.
(To Team 7) Hmm, how can I put this? My first impression of this group… you're a bunch of idiots.
(To Naruto) No, you don't get it, thats why I'm telling you. You think you get it, which isn't the same as actually getting it. Get it?
In the ninja world, those who break the rules are scum, that's true, but those who abandon their friends are worse than scum.
(To Sasuke) I'll protect you with my life. I will not allow my comrades to die. Trust me.
“In society, those who don’t have many abilities tend to complain more.
(At the shinobi Memorial) This place makes me think about the mistakes I've made in the past… and I've made so many of them.
(about Sasuke) No matter how far Orochimaru fell, he still loved him... Now I know how the Third Hokage felt.
Forget about revenge. The fate of those who seek revenge is grim. It's tragic, You will end up suffering and hurting yourself even more. Even if you do succeed in getting revenge, the only thing that remains is emptiness.
Sasuke, you are more than just your clan, you are more than just hatred. Look deep inside your heart once more.
One by one, the new generation will catch up to you, and in the end, they'll surpass you.
In the shinobi world, those that break the written and unwritten rules are deemed trash... but be that as it may... Those that would desregard their comrades so easily are even worse than trash. And those who don't have the decency to respect the memories of their comrades are the worst.

Sasuke

My name is Sasuke Uchiha. I hate a lot of things, and I don't particularly like anything. What I have is not a dream, because I will make it a reality. I'm going to restore my clan, and kill a certain someone.
It's not the future I dream of anymore. Only the past.
(To Sakura about Team 7) I know the four of us have worked together, and for a while, I thought I could choose that road instead… but in the end… I've decided on revenge. That's always been my reason for living.
(To Naruto) Just shut up for once! What the hell do you know about it?! It's not like you ever had a family in the first place! You were on your own right from the beginning, what makes you think you know anything about it?! Huh?! I'm suffering now because I had those ties. How on earth could you possibly understand what it feels like to lose all that!?
(To Tobi) If you want to ridicule me as a brat swayed by his emotions, go ahead. To accept and adopt Itachi's intention would be childish, the foolish sputtering of those who don't know hatred. If anyone who criticizes my way of life were to come forward , I'd turn around and kill every single one of their loved ones, so that they, too, can grasp what it's like... to experience this hatred of mine.
(about Sakura) Was she having fun in her little make-believe fantasy of true love? As for me, I have absolutely no reason to love her and likewise, I can see no reason why she would love me.
You know what they say, don’t you Naruto…When two Shinobi are powerful enough…They read each other’s thoughts, simply through an exchange of fists. Without ever uttering a single word…Get it. You’ve always been naïve…Naruto. Tell me…Do you know my thoughts? Can you tell what’s on my mind?!
(Sanity Slippage Sasuke)They’re all laughing. You’re laughing at the cost of Itachi’s life laughing together completely ignorant of everything. Your laughing voices sound like contempt and mocking me now, I will change those laughs to screams and wails.
Naruto... it's too late, nothing you can say will change me! I'm going to kill you and every last person in your beloved village! It's time to make your choice! Kill me and become a hero, or die at my hand and become another one of my victims!
[To Edo Tensei Itachi] I guess anything I say now would be pointless… When I saw you… I decided to follow you here to confirm whether or not what Danzō and Tobi told me was true or not. But that wasn’t the only reason… When I’m with you I remember the way it used to be. I remember time spent with the brother that I looked up to… that I loved. That’s why… The closer I get to you… The more I’m able to recall what those days felt like… And the more I’m able to understand you. The more I’m able to hate Konoha for the suffering they put you through. In fact, it’s becoming even stronger than before. I do understand what you want me to do. It’s probably because you’re my older brother that you feel the need to put me on the right path. But it’s probably because I’m your younger brother that I’ll never stop, no matter what you say. As you’ll always exist to protect the village… so will I to destroy it. Goodbye… brother.
(To his former team-mates)The Hokage created this situation. I'll become Hokage and change the village.
While it’s true I once desired destruction… and the only goal I had was revenge… things are different now. Because that which is destroyed can always be fixed and rebuilt. Villages freed from the clutches and employ of darkness… what I desire is to reform the entire shinobi world! What I am calling for, what I am bringing forth… that is… Revolution.
(To Kakashi, about Naruto) If he’s not here, then there’s no choice but me to protect you.
Weaknesses? Listen, he was full of weaknesses. He was a good-for nothing. But he pulled himself up with his own strength and became Hokage… You don’t need to understand who Naruto is now, you need to know the Naruto who made it all the way here.“
(To Boruto, for repeating Naruto’s past mistakes) On top of that, you made your little sister cry, your mother’s been hurt, and your father is gone. If it weren’t for your sister who adores you and your mother who worries so much about you, you’d be in the same situation your dad used to be in the past.

Sakura

I'm Sakura Haruno. What I like, uh… I mean the person I like is… (looks at Sasuke) My hobby is, uhh... My dream for the future is... (looks at Sasuke) *Squeal!*
I've always considered myself to be a true ninja… but those were just empty words, because Sasuke and Naruto were always in the lead! But now it's my turn to take the lead, and all of you can watch me from the background!
Didn't you know? Women have to be strong in order to survive!
*about killing Sasuke* I... Sasuke... I... I thought I could do this...
I'm the one who made Naruto suffer the most... I've just been getting it wrong. Just been messing it up... I don't want to get it wrong anymore...don't want to screw it up anymore.

Hinata

(to Neji) I will never go back on my word, because that too is my nindō, my ninja way!
(to Naruto) I used to always cry and give up… I made many wrong turns… But you… You helped me find the right path… I always chased after you… I wanted to catch up to you… I wanted to walk beside you all the time… I just wanted to be with you… You changed me! Your smile is what saved me! That is why I'm not afraid to die protecting you! Because… I love you…
(to Naruto) Neji just said… that your life is not just your own anymore… Do you understand what he meant? Your words and desire to not let your comrades die… Neither of them are lies! What inspired Neji and carried him this far were those very principles! It's not just you, Naruto… we all hold those same words and feelings within our hearts. They're what bind our lives together and make us comrades. If we all give up and discard those words and feelings now, Neji's sacrifice will have been for nothing… And that is when your comrades truly die, for you are no longer comrades then. That's how I feel… Therefore… stand up together with me, Naruto… Because never going back on one's word… is my ninja way too!

Orochimaru

(To Kabuto) You just don't have enough information to explain yourself yet. Your glasses, your name, being someone's child is not something that can show who really you are. But that is fine. If you're not happy on what you have now… you can just find new things to find up. …You see, I also want to find who I really am. That's why I'm collecting a bit of everything.
(To Hiruzen) I want to obtain all the techniques and gain a true understanding of everything in this world. The first one to mix blue and yellow called the new colour "green". I want to do something similar to that. If blue is the chakra, then yellow is the seal, and green is the technique… Just as there is no end to the variety of colours, there are so many thousands… tens of thousands of techniques in the world as well. But in order to obtain every possible technique and truth, it would require an eternity. Only one who understands everything after spending such time on this can be fittingly called the Ultimate Being.
(To Kimimaro)Maybe, just maybe, there is no purpose in life. But if you linger a while longer in this world, you might discover something of value in it, like how you discovered that flower. Or, how I discovered you one fateful night.
The best medicines always taste bitter.
(About Sasuke)When I watch this boy, I look back to the time I was called a genius, and think how ridiculous it was.
(About Yukimaru) When there is a true desire in the heart and that desire is strong… that is when he finds real strength that even he did not know he had.
I refuse… to let this happen! I am Orochimaru! I am immortal! I will not die here! Destined to discover the true meaning behind everything! Destined to take control of everything in this world!! He gets much better.
(To Tsunade)People change. It's just a matter of whether they die before it happens. Although he died just the way he was.
(To Hiruzen) Fine, let's bring back the memories… of when I was your student.

Kabuto

The more you want something, the harder it is to wait for it.
(to Naruto) Finding a new me, that is the lesson you taught me.
I am no longer a snake… sage power has allowed me to shed that skin… and I am a dragon now!!
(To Itachi) My name is a code… My glasses are a tool… I've been no one… From the start. From the very start… I had nothing.
(To Itachi) A genius that had everything will never understand. …I just want to become myself.
(To Suigetsu) You're right that Obito and I were convinced that we didn't have a place in this world, and we ended up involving everyone else. But now I know who I am and what I have to do.

Itachi

Even the strongest of opponents always have a weakness.
Every jutsu has a weakness! That weakness is... ME!!
My capacity...I've lost all hope for this pathetic clan...The clan....The clan... All of you without measuring your own capacities...Had no Idea of mine...And now, you lie here, Defeated....
Knowledge and awareness are vague, and perhaps better called illusions.
There is no value in killing the likes of you... Foolish little brother, if you wish to kill me, then Hate me, Detest me, Curse me, and survive in an unsightly way. Run, Run and cling to your pitiful life.
We do not know what kind of people we truly are until the moment before our deaths. As death comes to embrace you, you will realize what you are. That's what death is, don't you think?
Forgive me Sasuke... There will be no next time...
Self-sacrifice....A nameless shinobi who protects peace within it's shadow...THAT is a true shinobi...
However strong you become, never seek to bear everything alone. If you do, failure is certain.
You don't become the Hokage to be acknowledged by everyone. The one who is acknowledged by everyone becomes the Hokage.
If I had been open with you from the start… and looked you straight in the eyes and told you the truth, then I wouldn't have had to stand before you, from above, as a failure, telling you all of this. So this time, I want to impart this truth to you… You don't even have to forgive me. And no matter what you do from here on out, know this… I will love you always.

Pain

We are Pain. We are God.
Feel pain, contemplate pain, accept pain, know pain.
Those who do not know pain will never understand true peace.
(To Naruto) Because of the existence of love, sacrifice is born... as well as hate, and one comprehends... one knows pain.
Even innocent, foolish children will grow up in the face of pain until their thoughts and beliefs are the same as adults.
(To Naruto) Oh, I see… That is noble of you. That would be justice. However… what about my family… My friends… My village? They suffered the same fate as this village at the hands of you Hidden Leaf ninja. How is it fair to only let you people preach about peace and justice?
(To Naruto) We're both just ordinary men who've been driven to seek vengeance in the name of justice, and if one comes to call vengeance "justice", such justice will only breed further vengeance… and trigger a vicious cycle of hatred.
(To Naruto, after Naruto saying kiling is bad and all) Well then, Naruto, what's your answer?
Unless you come to know the same pain, you cannot truly comprehend someone else, and even if you comprehend them, you may still not ever agree with them. That's the truth.
(To Tsunade) You think you're the only ones who matter. You think you can put off death. But that peace made you foolish and thoughtless. If you kill someone, someone else will kill you… this hatred binds us together. I want you to feel pain, to think about pain, to accept pain, to know pain.
(To Naruto) You and I are the same. We're both motivated by our desire for peace and justice. The justice that I have delivered against the Leaf Village is no different than from what you are trying to do to me.
(To Akatsuki) We're both of the same breed, after all… motives for war are of no concern. Religion, ideology, resources, land, grudges, love, or just because… No matter how pathetic the reason, it's enough to start a war. War will never cease to exist… Reasons can be thought up after the fact. Human nature pursues strife.
(To Naruto, being sealed) I'll be returning to where our master is, so I can see your story… If you ask me… You're the third part that concludes the series… The first part was Jiraiya… He was flawless… But… The second part was me, an almost complete failure… I couldn't even get our master to acknowledge me… Ending the series is the third part… The final work will settle it all! Become such a masterpiece that that failure will be like it was cancelled altogether… Naruto!

Tobi/Obito

It's what you'd call a fail-safe... although he only got as far as the "fail" part.
The true power of the Sharingan… this is Madara Uchiha's power!
The moment people come to know love, they run the risk of carrying hate."
You called me the darkness. Well then, I shall make you wilt and cause this sparkling rainbow bridge of yours to fade into the darkness as well.
I'm no one, and I don't want to be anyone. All I care about is completing the Eye of the Moon Plan.
I want to build a world where heroes don't have to make pitiful excuses in front of graves.
Those that break the rules and regulations are scum. But those who abandon their comrades are even worse than scum. If I'm going to be called scum either way, I'd rather break the rules! And if that's not being a proper shinobi, then I'll destroy that idea!
I'm about to... die... but I'll become your eye...  and see the future with you!
I get it now. I'm in hell.
(To Nagato)You are the reincarnation of the Sage of the Six Paths, who dreamed of world peace and stability. Only the villages of large nations are showered in light, leaving your small country's shadow, dying. That is why I came here. Wherever light strikes, there will always be shadows. So as long as there is a concept of victors... the vanquished will also similarly exist. The selfish intent of wanting to preserve peace initiates wars. And hatred is born to protect love. These are all nexuses, causal relationships that can't be separated. But a world of just victors, peace and love... such a world can be created too. If you allow us to collaborate, we can teach you how. As soon as you gain the true power of the Rinnegan... you can create such a world. Now come with me.
The reason is because... You let Rin... die. Relax...what's with that look Kakashi?
Those words of yours, 'I will never let my comrades die...' Now, look around you... and try to say them again! I said, say those words again! As the bodies of your comrades cool in your arms... take in their deaths! This will keep happening, and your flippant words and ideology shall become lies. This is the end result of ideals and hopes. This is reality. Naruto... what is there here for you in this reality?! Both your father and mother are gone... your master, Jiraiya too... and if you keep standing against us, you'll continue to lose your comrades one by one, this shall become a world where no one acknowledges you will exist. The only thing that awaits you is your personal nightmare. Solitude! So why keep living in reality, eh? Now come join us, Naruto!
Look! There is nothing in my heart! I don't even feel pain!! You don't have to feel guilty, Kakashi. This wind-hole was opened by this hell of a world.
Now I finally realised that faking one's name and letting others do everything for you is different than entrusting something to one's comrades. I'm not you. The current me is the one who wanted to become Hokage: Obito Uchiha!
(Last words, to Naruto) You’ll probably have to suffer again from now on… but don’t change, keep going your way. You told me that you never change your words… that’s your ninja way. Right? Naruto, become Hokage… at all costs.

Madara Uchiha

(To Onoki and Mu) There is no alliance. From here on, you will obey Konoha! And never, ever say that shinobi's name around me!
(To Kurama) Nine-Tails, you are merely a momentary life, a temporary existence of coalesced energy… energy that once was a single, ultimate form! An unstable force, lacking in intelligence or sapience, you require a guide to show you purpose. That guide is the Uchiha! The tailed beasts are but slaves to those with blessed eyes. Obey!
(To Obito) This world is full of things that don't go as you wish. The longer you live the more you realise reality is just made of pain, suffering, and emptiness… Listen… In this world, whenever there is light, there are also shadows. As long as the concept of winners exist, there must also be losers. The selfish desire of wanting to maintain peace causes wars and hatred is born to protect love.
(To Obito before dying for the second time) "Go… until the time… I revive… you are Madara Uchiha.
(To Tobirama) Hashirama's country was a shameful contradiction… Man seeks peace, yet at the same time yearning for war… Those are the two realms belonging solely to man. Thinking of peace whilst spilling blood is something only humans can do. They're two sides of the same coin. To protect something… another must be sacrificed. That is, other than that of, say a dream world.
(To Obito) I taught you that in order to control people, you need to use the darkness in their hearts. And if there's no darkness, then you just create it… Do you really think I didn't try it on you, Obito? From the bottom of your heart, you felt kindness and sympathy for others. Your deep feelings… …for Rin… …your comrades… …the Hokage and the shinobi… All you needed to do was to fall once, and all that would turn around into deep hatred for the world.
(To Naruto) I just stopped the fate of this world. I freed people from pain, suffering, emptiness. […] Naruto… You're getting in the way of everyone's happiness. Our game ends here. I turned hell into heaven. You should understand… It's already over.

Haku

You see, when a person has something precious that they want to protect, then they become genuinely strong.
I don't want to kill you, but if you advance, I will have no choice. Then I will kill the kindness in my own heart and fully embrace the Shinobi Way.
This bridge will be the battlefield where our dreams collide. Now I must fight for my dream just as you fight for yours. Please do not blame me.
(To Naruto) I fight for someone who is precious to me. I live for him, and I face death for him so that his dream may become reality. That is my dream.
(To Zabuza) Your eyes are just like mine, Mister; we're both the same.
(To Naruto) In all the world, there was no one who needed me. I was... unnecessary.

Itachi

You shouldn't judge people by their appearance or by your own preconceptions.
My foolish little brother, if you wish to kill me one day in hate and revenge, surviving in such an unsightly manner as this, then by all means, flee. Cling to your wretched life, and then one day when you have the same eyes, come back and face me.
Each of us lives dependent and bound by our individual knowledge and our awareness. All that is what we call "reality"; however, both knowledge and awareness are equivocal. One's reality might be another's illusion. We all live inside our own fantasies.
Being the best isn't all it's cracked up to be. When you have power, you become arrogant and isolated from the world no matter how coveted and sought-after you are in the beginning.
You and I are flesh and blood. I'm always going to be there for you, even if it's only as an obstacle for you to overcome. Even if you do hate me, that's what big brothers are for.
I've had enough, there's no hope left for this pathetic clan. The people of this clan are all the same. You focus on the trivial and lose sight on what's most important. Change is impossible in this fog of ignorance. How can we evolve when regulation is all we know?
Sasuke is still a blank canvas. He can easily be dyed to any color.
Self-sacrifice… A nameless shinobi who protects peace within its shadow… That is a true shinobi.
(To Kisame) We're both human, not fish. No matter who you are, you do not truly know what kind of man you've become until you've reached the very end. One realizes one's true nature at the moment of death.

Zabuza

When you've hovered between life and death so many times that it doesn't faze you, you may be called a ninja. When you've become so deadly that your profile has been entered into my bingo book, then you may have earned the title ninja.
(To Naruto) When I was your age, my hands were already soaked in blood…
Shut up kid, Haku's already dead… As I was used by Gatō, I used Haku. That was all. I've said it already… in the world of shinobi, there are only those who use and those whom are used. We shinobi are simply tools… what I wanted was his blood, not him… I have no regrets.
You were always at my side, the least I can do is to be beside you at the end. I know it cannot be, but I wish I could go to where you have gone. How I wish I could join you there, Haku.

Akatsuki

Sasori
(To Kankurō) Since I don't like to wait or make people wait… I'll end this quickly.
(To Kankurō) For my name to be known all the way down to a kid like you… is an honour.
(To Deidara) What? You call those explosions fine art? Fine art is something wonderful that's left long into the future… eternal beauty.
(To Chiyo) That is a considerable amount of puppets. But… [Proceeds to summon one hundred puppets of his own] With these, I took down a whole nation!
(To Sakura) I would describe myself as a human being who could not become a complete puppet, I am an unfinished puppet, whose lifeless frame still contains a beating heart at its core. I am neither dead, nor am I alive.
(Upon seeing Kankurō using his puppet body) My old puppet body… Suddenly it all seems so pointless. I now have the body I've always desired, one that will never rot or decay. I've truly become a puppet in every sense of the word.
