Quotes / 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.
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!!


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.
(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.
One by one, the new generation will catch up to you, and in the end, they'll surpass you.


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.


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!


(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!


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.
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 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.


It's what you'd call a fail-safe... although he only got as far as the "fail" part.
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.
Since you're about to die, I shall enlighten you.
Nagato only believed in Naruto to try and find solace in his pathetic existence.
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.


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.


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.


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.
