[[folder:Uzumaki Naruto]]
!!Uzumaki Naruto
The main protagonist of the story, he is a former member of the infamous nine-member group known collectively as the "Kyuushingai," or "Nine Terrors;" his code-name during his time with the group was "Kurama the Fox." At the start of the story, he's just moving to Konoha Town to live with his mother, Kushina.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: He's far smarter in this fanfic than he was in canon. The training regimen he underwent while a part of the Kyuushingai explains this [[spoiler:especially with the revelation that much of his intelligence was artificially ingrained]].
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: In his back-story at Uzushio High School, following his gang-fight that resulted in mass property damage at the school, Naruto fell victim to this when suspicion was (correctly) cast on him being a Kyuushingai. It didn't help that the city, having been among the hardest hit by the Kyuushingai during the 365 days, was still feeling raw from the incident.
* AnimalMotif: His is the fox. Aside from it being part of his code-name, on his own he's cunning, he's stealthy, and he's pulled out of several close shaves by sheer luck.
* AntiHero: He has shades of this, despite being the main character. While he does regret having to do the things he did just to survive the 365 days, for much of the story he justifies his actions by noting that he only killed people who attacked him or were hurting innocents, and as such he was [[IDidWhatIHadToDo doing what he had to do]]. Much of his CharacterDevelopment has to do with him coming to terms with the reality that not everybody who suffered during the 365 days is going to see it the same way. Then there's his willingness to brutally beat up opponents and torture people (by making them watch ''Film/{{Twilight}}'', mind you, but even still...).
* TheAtoner: He's not proud of his past as a member of the Kyuushingai.
* BadassBoast: Gives a menacing one to Kurotsuchi when he lets her know via phone call that he's coming for her after her goons have attempted to burn down Mabui's spa.
--> Once upon a time I was known as Kurama the Fox of the Kyuushingai, and during the 365 days I killed 427 people with my own two hands. You could have a legion to guard you--it still won’t be enough to save you from me. So clean your neck and wait for me.
* BadassFamily: His father's a black-ops agent, his mother's capable of beating the ever-loving crap out of gangsters half her age, and Naruto himself is a Kyuushingai.
* BadassInDistress: Gets this way during the Abduction Arc [[spoiler:when Akatsuki and Mizuki's gang kidnap Hanabi as bait to draw him in, then torture him almost to death]].
* BashBrothers: With Sasuke, during the Spa Inferno arc.
* BerserkButton: Harming any of his friends, particularly Ino or Hinata, will trigger Kyuushingai-level rage. [[spoiler:He would've killed Aoi over the latter's beat-down of Ino in Chapter 25 if not for Sasuke's intervention; and he gave Zabuza a savage thrashing and near-throat-cutting for injuring Hinata in Chapter 41, but Ino managed to talk him down in that incident]].
* BigEater: By Kushina's testimony.
* BrilliantButLazy: Naruto is quite bored in some of his classes and isn't shown to do the requisite work (though considering his Kyuushingai gifted intelligence boost this is a justified case), but he's skilled enough to completely solve a Rubik's cube in the time it takes Hiashi to say the first few letters of the alphabet. It is also implied that he can solve it even faster but he deliberately solved it at G just for a pun.
--> '''Hiashi:''' ''(Naruto starts on the cube)'' A. B. C. D. E. F.
--> '''Naruto:''' ''(finished)'' [[JustForPun Gee]], that was easy!
--> '''Hiashi:''' Wha--?
* BrokenHero: This version of Naruto isn't as BookDumb as his canon counterpart, and he's a terrifyingly skilled fighter capable of taking down gangs all by himself. Yet he's got some serious loathing for his time as a Kyuushingai, and the trauma of having to partake of city-wide massacres day after day for a whole year has taken a toll on him by the time the story's main plot has begun.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The Brooding Boy to Hinata's Gentle Girl.
* BullyHunter: People who abuse others weaker than themselves are ''very'' unfortunate if they get onto Naruto's radar. Two particular examples stand out--he tore Aoi and his Hall Monitors new ones for abusing their authority, and took on Kurotsuchi's mob single-handedly after she attempted to use intimidation tactics on a small-business owner.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: A frequent trait of his, including but not limited to: his rescuing of the Yamanaka family store from Mizuki and his thugs, his beating of Aoi and the Hall Monitors' Guild when they hassle innocent townspeople, his going to rescue Hanabi when she's been kidnapped, his helping Mabui when her spa is threatened by Kurotsuchi...
* CombatPragmatist: This was his specialty as a member of the Kyuushingai, according to him. Among other things, he's proven willing to knock opponents in the crotch, kick out kneecaps, and take advantage of injuries he knows his opponents have.
--> '''Naruto:''' Back during the 365 days, I specialized in practical combat--break limbs here and there, use as few moves as possible to beat the opponent, all that kind of stuff.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Naruto always believed that, given the skills that the Nine Terrors learned, they should have used such skills for the betterment of mankind. As the 365 days' incident testifies, however, that didn't happen.
* CoveredWithScars: [[spoiler:As a result of his torture at Monjin's hands, Naruto's got numerous scars over his torso; he's also got some on his arms from the same incident, but those aren't quite as noticeable at a casual glance since they were smaller and healed better]].
* CovertPervert: His attempt at distracting himself from thinking sexy thoughts about Mei in class led to him thinking about other girls in the cast in various stages of undress or wearing skimpy clothing.
* CrazyPrepared: Has elements of this, especially made prominent in the Vengeance Arc. On learning that Hana and Hokuto have been kidnapped and he's being required to show up at a certain place alone to get them back, Naruto's response is to dress in full black (along with borrowing his mother's Shadow Fox mask), wearing a metal plate underneath a bandanna covering his hair and forehead, and arrive at the meeting-site an hour ahead of the stipulated time so as to scout the area, in case it proves to be a trap as he suspects it is. [[spoiler:Good thing too, because Temari attempts to snipe him in the head from a hidden spot, but the bullet is deflected by said metal plate and mask]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: While his family life averts this, his life between the 365 days and the start of the main story badly affected him. Naruto's past as a member of the Kyuushingai haunts him to this very day, and his move to Konoha Town was not only an attempt to avoid a criminal record, but also an attempt to start fresh and move on with his life.
* DeadpanSnarker: He's got quite a few zingers for the appropriate targets. Unfortunately for him, [[SnarkToSnarkCombat Kushina can snark right back]].
* DitzyGenius: While he's significantly smarter than his canon counterpart [[spoiler:thanks to artificially-implanted intelligence during his Kyuushingai training]], Naruto still has moments of daffiness, one of the earliest examples being his surprise that anyone would suspect him and Ino of being in a relationship (which earns him a flattening punch from the irritated Ino for voicing it so loudly).
* ExperiencedProtagonist: As a result of the training regimen that all the Kyuushingai had to go through [[spoiler:including artificially-implanted knowledge in various subject areas]], Naruto is extremely skilled at fighting long before the story begins. The 365-day chaotic period itself also played a role in him becoming this.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He loves and cares for his friends and family, and has regrets about his time as a Kyuushingai. That being said, if you press him [[BerserkButton or threaten his loved ones' safety]], expect to get your limbs broken.
* GoodScarsEvilScars / ScarsAreForever: In this universe, those familiar whisker-marks on his face are actually scars, given to him by Gaara right before the 365 days' rampage began. [[spoiler:He gets a lot more all over his body after being tortured by Akatsuki]].
* HeCleansUpNicely: He ''can'' dress up in formal-wear and look good doing so...he just doesn't particularly ''like'' it.
--> '''Naruto:''' I feel like a China doll.
* HeroesFightBarehanded: Usually, though he won't shy away from [[CombatPragmatist using whatever's on hand as a weapon]] if the situation warrants it.
* HopelessSuitor: Was this for Sakura. Fortunately, Hinata was there as a different option.
* HurtingHero: Concerning the 365 days.
* IHatePastMe
* ImprovisedWeaponUser: He's used a soda bottle as a club and a rope as a whip and lasso.
* JadeColoredGlasses
* MyGreatestFailure: The 365 days is this for him, specifically because it was a fight between him and Gaara that triggered the event.
* NewTransferStudent: Chapter 2 reveals that Naruto has transferred to Konoha High School from Uzushio High School in Whirl City. It's later revealed that transferring was one of two options he faced after a fight with a gang that caused a great deal of destruction to Uzushio High (the other option was being expelled and arrested by the local police on suspicion of being a Kyuushingai).
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When he found out about Gaara's plot to murder several government officials, Naruto sought to stop Gaara directly. Unfortunately, the ensuing fight resulted in the first few deaths that would kick off the 365 days, which in turn led to numerous more deaths and a lot of property damage [[spoiler:and indirectly led to the death of one of the Kira brothers]]. In the present day, both Yugao and Judge Utatane [[WhatTheHellHero give him hell over it]] during the Tribunal Arc.
* NoBadassToHisValet: There are exactly two people who are not intimidated or impressed by Naruto's experiences as a Kyuushingai--his parents, Minato and Kushina. Both have seen him at his most vulnerable, Kushina has no bones about [[SnarkToSnarkCombat trading insults with him]], and Minato (a black-ops commander) can easily inflict a CurbStompBattle on him ''during training''.
* NomDeMom: Like in the canon series, Naruto takes his surname from Kushina, although it's been confirmed that Minato is alive and works for the military. Turns out it was Minato's idea, to protect his family from any enemies he might make due to his black-ops work.
* NotAMorningPerson: Naruto doesn't do well in the mornings, in one instance grumbling that the morning should go away and come back at 2:00 p.m.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In the first chapter, when Naruto is just arriving in Konoha Town, he acts like a very clueless newcomer to avoid being beaten up by Dosu, Zaku and Kin even as they're trashing the Yamanaka greengrocery, and in the second chapter he's acting as though he's terrified of being beaten up by other Konoha High students for mouthing off to them. This is the same guy who was part of a nine-member group that caused panic across an entire continent for a whole year's worth of time, and in the present day is capable of single-handedly beating up a whole gang with nothing but a soda bottle.
* OddFriendship: With Shino and Minister Byakuren. Also Yugao, to a lesser extent, though their association didn't start off exactly friendly.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Tried to pass himself off as this early on, complete with ObfuscatingStupidity; unfortunately, it didn't quite take. It definitely didn't work back when he was at Uzushio High School, given [[OneManArmy what he did to Sumaru's gang]] at that time.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Of course, Naruto's got blond hair. During the Underground Fists arc, he wears a red jacket and jeans and a blue undershirt (see the image on the main page). During the final arc, he wears a red jacket with blue jeans, and later swaps out the jacket for a red T-shirt while wearing a pair of jeans that's an even deeper shade of blue.
* RedIsHeroic: As explained immediately above.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Sasuke's blue.
* SecondYearProtagonist: He starts the story as a transfer student in his second year of high school (his first year was spent at Uzushio High School in Whirl City).
* SherlockScan: A skill he possesses from his training with the Kyuushingai. It allows him to notice Jiraiya's right hand has wrinkles from using too much lotion for, uh, [[ADateWithRosiePalms personal business]] [[spoiler:and also to notice that Nohara Rin uses makeup to hide her DomesticAbuse scars]].
* SleevesAreForWimps: Occasionally wears a sleeveless jacket, most notably during the Underground Fists Arc. Also, at one point during the final fight with Gaara, he rips off one of the sleeves from his jacket (albeit to use as makeshift bandages).
* SurvivorGuilt: Naruto's been suffering this ever since the end of the 365 days, as he admits in Chapter 26.
--> '''Naruto:''' Do you know how many nights I'd go to bed hating that I was still alive while people I'd never met and would never get to know were dead because of what I helped to do?
* TheseHandsHaveKilled: Part of his SurvivorGuilt complex.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Wouldn't be Naruto without the ramen, although his love of it is toned down to more realistic levels here.
* WideEyedIdealist: Used to be this, most notably concerning what he could do with the training he would receive as a government. A flashback reveals that he was quite gung-ho about using his training to serve his country, even after Itachi [[spoiler:and Dr. Haruno]] warned him that it would not be all sunshine and roses. Then the 365 days happened and he got his JadeColoredGlasses.
* WillfullyWeak: Not weak, per se, but Naruto intentionally holds back whenever he fights, to the point that it's become subconscious. This is justified, seeing as being a former member of the disbanded Kyuushingai, he's arguably one of the strongest fighters in the country and maybe even the world, and therefore can easily cripple someone, even if he hadn't intended to do so.
* WouldHitAGirl: If that girl is an opponent, then yes. Tenten is the first example.

[[folder:Naruto's Family Members]]
The members of Naruto's immediate and extended family; the latter group is introduced in the thirty-ninth Gaiden where they come to spend Christmas with Naruto, Kushina and Minato.

!!Uzumaki Kushina
Naruto's mother, and a major source of support for him and good advice for his peers.
* ActionMom: Among other things, she frightens off Kimimaro's gang [[spoiler:despite having just been shot]], fights Mangetsu with relative ease and only gets hit once when she drops her guard, and violently rebuffs a break-in and murder attempt by Dosu and Zaku.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She is this to Naruto, especially when combined with her tendency to snark about his relationships with girls. And there's also her fan-girl attitude toward the popular ''Shadow Fox'' comic, including having a cosplay costume, which causes Naruto to do a double-take the first time he sees her wearing it.
* CombatPragmatist: When forced to defend herself, she proves to be this in spades, including liberal use of the GroinAttack and using anything she can grab as a weapon.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: As depicted in this fanfic, Kushina usually appears as a (mostly) motherly housewife who likes to cook, trades VolleyingInsults with her own son, cosplays as the in-universe female Franchise/{{Batman}} expy, throws around [[DeadpanSnarker some really wicked zingers]] ([[SnarkToSnarkCombat usually in response to Naruto's own zingers]]), plays video games, owns a PornStash, and is heavily implied to [[ADateWithRosiePalms do non-food-related things with cucumbers]]. This same woman is also married to a government agent and is the mother of one of the Kyuushingai, and as such she is perfectly capable of taking care of herself if need be, as Dosu and Zaku find out to their sorrow.
* DamselInDistress: [[DefiedTrope Defied]]. [[CombatPragmatist Violently]].
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Naruto implies more than once that she engages in this with cucumbers. Kushina's not amused.
* DeadpanSnarker: She engages in frequent SnarkToSnarkCombat with Naruto.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Chapter 56, "Reckless Driver." It was a BigDamnHeroes moment, though, so it's perfectly excusable.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: If Mei's rather flustered response to meeting her for the first time is any indication.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: She got Minato.
* FieryRedhead: Mostly toward Naruto, during comedic situations.
* {{Housewife}}: For the most part, and she clearly enjoys cooking delicious meals for Naruto and his friends.
* HiddenDepths: She's generally quite cheerful, spends most of her time at home cooking and doing typical housewife stuff, and on the more eccentric end she cosplays as the in-universe comic book character Shadow Fox and also owns her very own porn stash. However, under serious circumstance she proves to be a source of good maternal wisdom to whoever needs it. [[spoiler:Going even deeper, she's got some resentment toward her husband Minato for distancing himself from his family, to the point of requesting Kushina to retake her maiden name, for the sake of protecting her and Naruto due to Minato's black-ops work, and subsequently leaving her alone to deal with Naruto's post-365 days trauma. [[StepfordSmiler She hides her bitterness very well up to that point]]]].
* HotBlooded: She has one hell of a temper, not unlike canon. It's usually played for laughs, but the few times it's actually played for drama, it's significant.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Her very own ramen pot, or a hot cup of ramen. [[ImprovisedWeaponUser In her defense, she had to improvise]].
* MamaBear: She loves her son, VolleyingInsults aside. And she's not going to stand for him being hurt, even if he's a Kyuushingai and can well take care of himself. [[spoiler:She even goes as far as to physically threaten the business executive who helped facilitate Naruto's abduction, while wearing a disguise to hide who she really is]].
--> '''Kushina:''' Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find my son. And if I do not find him in the same condition I last saw him, I guarantee you, '''this whole town will burn!'''
* NotAMorningPerson: And now you know where Naruto gets it from. Witness her response to an early-morning phone call that forces her to get out of bed:
--> '''Kushina:''' You're looking for a quick way to commit suicide, aren't you?
* SparedByTheAdaptation: You know she's dead in canon, right?
* SupremeChef: Naruto's friends have lauded her cooking prowess more than once.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: In contrast to her canon self, the girly aspect of Kushina's character gets more prevalence here, as she's generally seen in her kitchen and doing stuff around the home. That being said, she is just as likely to beat the crap out of you with a pot as she is to cook a delicious meal in it.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ramen, and she's even more obsessive about it than ''Naruto''.
--> '''Kushina:''' In this house, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis you--do not--spill--ramen]]--especially when it's being prepared!

!!Namikaze Minato
Naruto's father and Kushina's husband, he gets mentioned several times throughout the story before being formally introduced in Chapter 57. He's the head of the black-ops investigation team Yuyami.
* ActionDad
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Naruto, in terms of combat skill. He's actually able to put Naruto flat on his back without Naruto being able to land even a single hit.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Implied. We know he's the leader of Yuyami, which includes Yugito, a former Kyuushingai and an ex-cop, and Itachi, a skilled combatant and gunslinger, and also that he's capable of [[TrainingFromHell mopping the floor with Naruto as a means of training the latter]]. He's definitely got what it takes.
* BerserkButton: Threatening harm to his family is basically a good way to sign your own death warrant. As shown in the fifteenth Gaiden, he was willing to [[KillItWithFire set a group of thugs on fire]] because they sought to burn down the Uzumaki home with Naruto and Kushina inside.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: His behavior is quite comical at times. He makes many a ShoutOut to real-life pop culture in the form of quotations, gives joking quips about [[ShipperOnDeck how he expects Itachi and Yugito to hook up]], and casually rebuffs Yugito's attempts at physical assault in response to his ribbing (these in themselves played for laughs) while being the target of both Yugito's (again comical) death threats and Itachi's insults...but then you remember that he's the field leader for a black-ops team, giving orders to said two members (Yugito a former Kyuushingai, Itachi a gun-slinging marksman) [[spoiler:and [[PapaWolf also made a point]] of visiting the home of the man who led Naruto into a trap by Akatsuki, without actually killing said man due to the decision to leave him to [[MamaBear Kushina]]]]. Not to mention, during the second TimeSkip he was in charge of Naruto's training, with Naruto (also a Kyuushingai) being completely unable to land even ''a single hit'' on Minato during the one flashback scene showcasing the TrainingFromHell Minato put him through; and he can and will use the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique on anyone he needs information out of without batting an eye, ''and'' Kankuro implies in Chapter 59 that it would be a suicidal move to confront Minato head-on because, if he'd volunteered for the Kyuushingai training program, they wouldn't have needed more people than just him. Digest all that for a minute.
* BigGood: Essentially. While he's taking orders from the Minister of Justice, he's the one directing how the good guys carry out their objectives.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: In sharp contrast to his canon self, Minato is incredibly immature and childish in his behavior, ribbing his own subordinates and family over little things that are bound to annoy them while being absolutely casual about it, and has a hint of perversion to his character (read: disguising a recording device as a tampon for Yugito to wear). This is the same man who's in charge of a highly-effective black-ops investigative team.
* ColdBloodedTorture: He was willing to burn [[spoiler:Temari]] [[GroinAttack on the genitals]] with a blowtorch for the sake of getting information, ''without hesitating about it, at that''. Granted, he ''is'' head of a black-ops team, and the information he was seeking was necessary to save lives, but even still...
* DeathGlare: In the fifteenth Gaiden, he's described as having one that could melt solid steel if it were possible. Granted, the recipient of the glare ''did'' try to murder Naruto and Kushina in their sleep.
* DisappearedDad: Prior to Chapter 57, he was this for Naruto, although not by death, since it was already confirmed that he was still alive. [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou The reason for his absence was because he is in charge of Yuyami, which is investigating the events that led to the 365 days of carnage two years ago]].
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a good guy who'll willingly set people on fire for pissing him off.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Minato's ''good'' with firearms. In the main story, he doesn't miss a single one of his targets, whether with a handgun or a sniper-rife. In the twenty-ninth Gaiden, he proves capable of shooting several criminals in their extremities from several meters away, as well as [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands shooting a gun out of one criminal's hand]], and that's only because he's specifically seeking ''not'' to kill them outright.
* InTheHood: His first appearance in the main story shows him wearing a white pullover jacket with a hood. Chronologically, he's first seen wearing it in the twenty-second Gaiden, set a short while before the start of the main story.
* ManChild: Acts this way at times, especially when teasing Itachi and Yugito about [[ShipperOnDeck the relationship he thinks they should have]].
* OneManArmy: A downplayed example as demonstrated in the fifteenth Gaiden, where he [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly takes out five hoodlums in the space of a few seconds]]. More heavily implied in the main story, where Kankuro indicates that if Minato had volunteered himself for the Kyuushingai training, ''he alone'' would have been all the trainers needed.
* PapaWolf: In the main story, after seeing what's happened to Naruto [[spoiler:as a result of the latter's capture and torture by Mizuki and Akatsuki]], Minato arranges for one perpetrator to get beaten up by Itachi, who already has [[BigBrotherInstinct personal reasons]] to batter the guy. He also pays a personal visit to Mitokado Homura, who was in league with that event, but takes care to hide his true identity and leaves any due violence to [[MamaBear Kushina]]. Then in the twenty-ninth Gaiden, he gets downright ''vicious'' on members of the RoguesGallery [[spoiler:when they plan to shoot up Naruto's wedding]].
* ParentalNeglect: He's been accused five different times of perpetrating this with Naruto. Put it this way: when ''the Prime Minister himself'' calls you out on being a bad parent, you ''know'' you've been a bad parent. Minato, to his credit, doesn't try to deny it.
* ShipperOnDeck: Actively encourages Itachi and Yugito to get together.
* SlasherSmile: Gives '''a positively menacing one''' to members of the RoguesGallery in the twenty-ninth Gaiden [[spoiler:after preventing them from crashing Naruto's wedding]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Han is able to recognize Minato as Naruto's father because of this, the first time they meet.
* TortureTechnician: Want to know how readily he'll do the dirty work in his black-ops job? [[spoiler:He knocks out Temari, then ties her, blindfolded, to her own bed and burns off a part of her hair with a blowtorch, then threatens to [[GroinAttack use said blowtorch on her vagina]] if she doesn't cough up the info he wants]].

!!Uzumaki Karin
Naruto's cousin, and Nagato and Jumira's daughter.
* {{Meganekko}}: Just like in canon, though she doesn't appear (so far) to be a {{Tsundere}} like her canon counterpart.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She’s Nagato’s daughter, Naruto’s first cousin, and Kushina and Mito’s niece as opposed to being (at best) a distant relative.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Minato notes that she takes after her mother, except Jumira doesn't wear glasses.

!!Uzumaki Nagato
Karin's father, Kushina's older brother and Naruto's maternal uncle.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: While they're all members of the Uzumaki clan, there's otherwise no direct relation between Nagato and Naruto, Kushina, Mito, or Karin and her mother.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: Not as bad as Mito, but Nagato is coolly formal toward Minato.

!!Uzumaki Jumira
Karin's mother, Nagato's wife and Naruto's aunt by marriage.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Karin's mother wasn't identified by name in canon.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: While she would technically be related to Kushina, Mito, Naruto and Nagato in canon by virtue of them being members of the same clan, there wasn't any overt family connection there.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: According to Minato, she's basically an older Karin minus the glasses.

!!Uzumaki Mito
Kushina's older sister and Naruto's maternal aunt, and she's the oldest of the senior Uzumaki siblings.
* AdaptationalJerkass: While she's not a lawbreaker, this version of Mito is significantly more acidic than her canon counterpart, who was a mentor to Kushina and was noted for having compassion.
* AgeLift: In canon, at the time she and Kushina interacted, Mito was an old woman. In this fic, her younger incarnation is the version used as Kushina's sister.
* AloofBigSister: Kushina recounts that she and Mito had a rocky relationship growing up, as Mito never approved of anything Kushina ever did.
* CoolCar: She drives a blue Shelby Cobra.
* TheDreaded: Within the Uzumaki/Namikaze family, just the mere mention of the possibility of her coming causes Kushina to [[OhCrap freeze in terror]] and Minato to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere attempt to flee the premises]]. Keep in mind, both of them are parents to a Kyuushingai, plus Minato's a black-ops agent.
--> '''Minato:''' I'd rather swim with sharks than deal with her!
* InSeriesNickname: Naruto and Karin both refer to her as "the blood-haired bitch," due to her acidic personality.
* LethalChef: In [[SupremeChef Kushina's]] words, Mito is her exact opposite when it comes to the kitchen. According to her, Mito can't tell cinnamon from meat seasoning, and during their school days she almost burned down her school's Home Economics room [[EpicFail while trying to boil water]]. Minato recounts how she nearly killed him with a Christmas cake during a previous visit.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: She and Minato are openly hostile to each other.
* PetTheDog: While Mito's portrayed in this fic as snobbish and disagreeable, Karin's ExactEavesdropping on Nagato's telephone conversation with her prior to the Christmas dinner reveals that, like Nagato, Mito doesn't blame Naruto for the events of the 365 days.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Due to the aforementioned AgeLift, as she’s a PosthumousCharacter in the original.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha High School - Students]]

The list of characters who are students of Konoha High School.

!!Yamanaka Ino
One of Naruto's classmates at Konoha High School, and the first one to both find out about his past as a Kyuushingai and to accept him and become his friend in spite of it. Her family owns a greengrocery store.
* ActionGirl: Very, very active.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: In Chapter 4, Ino is shown to have purchased five shopping bags' worth of shoes...the thing is, though, she's making poor Naruto carry four of the five bags, with him having both hands, his neck and his mouth occupied with the bags as a result.
--> '''Naruto:''' ''(speech impeded by the bag in his mouth)'' Aw vis fer shoes?
--> '''Ino:''' Yes, Naruto, all this for shoes.
* AscendedExtra: In the sense that, in canon, she was one of the main supporting cast but otherwise didn't impact the plot as hugely as, say, Hinata, Shikamaru or Gaara; whereas in this fic, she's one of the major characters from the get-go.
* BatterUp: Her weapon of choice in the first two chapters, used against Naruto during their first meeting (she thought he was trying to rob her father), and then against some of Mizuki's goons before they manage to overpower and restrain her. She hasn't been seen wielding a bat since then, though.
* BerserkButton: Don't waste pudding around her. Played for comedy.
* BoisterousBruiser: She's not exactly a quiet individual. Nor is she a ''weak'' one, either.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: She's not one to stand back while innocent civilians are being hassled by thugs. The first noteworthy example of this shows when she attacks Aoi for trying to sexually assault a random woman ''long'' before Naruto gets involved in the fray; and much later, she's the first to challenge Darui for his shaking-down of local store-owners, even when Shikamaru and Choji are reluctant to get involved.
* CordonBleughChef: Bordering on LethalChef, at that. She makes a dish of pepperpot soup[[note]]a real-life dish native to the Caribbean, with ingredients consisting of peppers, beef, tapioca sauce, cinnamon, garlic, onion, thyme, basil, sugar and salt[[/note]] and serves it to the gang in Chapter 100...and only Choji and Kushina can stomach it, the latter (herself a SupremeChef) pointing out just what Ino's done wrong after a few test-tastes. For Naruto, Shikamaru and Sasuke, though, the concoction "tastes like vomit."
--> '''Choji:''' Well, it doesn't ''smell'' toxic...
* FragileSpeedster: According to Kushina's observation in Chapter 96, during Ino's brief spar with Hinata. It's indicated much earlier than this, too, particularly during her fight with Aoi in the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational tournament, where she's fast enough to deliver blows and get out of reach but runs into trouble once her opponent manages to land one good hit on her.
* GroinAttack: She tends to inflict this more often than not. She has a particularly painful one that she came up with to deter any DirtyOldMan who'd try to hit on her while shopping at her family's store: grab the balls and ''twist''. It's also just as effective on women as on men, as Kin found out to her agony.
* TheMatchmaker: Ino, being a ShipperOnDeck for Naruto and Hinata, seeks to get the two of them talking by luring Naruto into a classroom where Hinata's waiting to see him.
* TheNotLoveInterest: Let's see. She was introduced as a main character, she was the first to accept Naruto in spite of his past, and she's displayed {{Tsundere}} behavior around him, not to mention a few of the readers' reviews asked essentially if the two of them would hook up. Despite all this, though, the author has insisted repeatedly that, while they are certainly quite close, Naruto and Ino are not hitching up, and indeed Ino herself is TheMatchmaker and ShipperOnDeck for Naruto and Hinata. [[spoiler:Cemented by her RelationshipUpgrade with Sai]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Hinata's blue.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Naruto and Hinata.
* SweetTooth: Given her perpetual craving for pudding.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to Hinata's girly-girl.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She's active in sports and street fighting, but she's still got the typical interest in boys.
* TomboyishPonytail
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pudding.

!!Haruno Sakura
Ino's main rival at Konoha High School, and an early (and failed) love interest to Naruto. She's also the daughter of Haruno Kizashi, the chief surgeon at Konoha Hospital.
* AcademicAlphaBitch: Her first appearance paints her this way, always lording over Ino because of the fact that, a year prior, she'd gotten the highest GPA out of all the girls in their class (Ino came a close second, losing out by five points). It's later deconstructed, however, in that behaving this way will bleed into one's social interactions with others, which in turn will lead to one getting viewed as a stuck-up, pretentious, arrogant blowhard who everyone resents and avoids. Sakura later finds this out the hard way when Sasuke, the object of her crush, tears into her with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech over her behavior; and even well into one Gaiden chapter which takes place long after the events of the main story, another student, Haruna, is still unwilling to see any good qualities in Sakura ''because'' the latter practiced this former mindset.
--> '''Sasuke:''' You refuse to admit when someone has a quality you lack, yet you obsess over it when you ''think'' they do. You don't hesitate to put such people down, and make enemies out of them.
* ActionGirl: She's not about to let the boys outdo her during the fight with the Blood Mist Gang in Chapter 41.
* BadassBookworm: She was the top-performing female student in her year-group during the previous school year prior to the start of the story. She's also capable of dishing out a beating in the middle of a group brawl, or fighting Ino in one-on-one combat.
* BatterUp: She proves to be quite handy with a baseball bat during the fight with the Blood Mist Gang, even stylishly twirling it around for a bit before slugging one of the thugs with it.
* CherryBlossomGirl: Her name's Sakura, she has pink hair, she's associated with medical expertise (indirectly--her father's a surgeon), she's a LoveInterest for Sasuke, and she's strongly associated with cherry blossoms in Chapter 152 [[spoiler:during Sasuke's rather erotic dream about her following their RelationshipUpgrade]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: When first introduced, she's absolutely uncivil to Naruto, bitchy to Ino, and haughty to everyone else not named Sasuke. It takes a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech from Sasuke for her to start thawing, but it's not until [[spoiler:her family's home and car are vandalized by a pair of students who resented her behavior]] that she really starts humbling herself.
* ForeheadOfDoom: Naturally enough, her having this provides Ino with fodder to use in response to Sakura's "pig" insults. Their first conversation in Chapter 2 is just the first example.
--> '''Sakura:''' Eating alone again, piggy? And is that a pork sausage you've got? Don't tell me you've turned cannibal now?
--> '''Ino:''' Since when do you care what I eat, Great Forehead of China?
* HiddenDepths: For most of the story, especially prior to her CharacterDevelopment, Sakura comes across as shallow, vain, arrogant, overly proud of her academic skill, and outright snobbish...but she's also been wrestling with the fact that [[WhenYouComingHomeDad her father's always staying out late at work and is consequently rarely home to enjoy a meal with the family]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She might quarrel with Ino frequently, look down on people of lower social standing than herself, and lord her queen-bee status over everyone else...but when [[spoiler:Aoi savagely beats Ino during Sasuke's tournament]], Sakura shows a considerable amount of compassion because, as she herself declares, nobody deserves to undergo something like that.
* RapunzelHair: Sakura's hair is her pride and joy, according to Chapter 2's narrative; however, Ino takes advantage of it during their fight in the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational. Much later, Sakura has Ino [[ImportantHaircut cut it to shoulder-length]] as a sign that she's casting off her perceived weakness.
* RichBitch: She starts the story as this, and it doesn't help that she's the daughter of Konoha Town's resident surgeon. Witness her response to Naruto's attempt to ask her out on a date, in Chapter 3:
--> '''Naruto:''' Say, Sakura-chan, I just got two free-meal coupons to use at Burger Castle, and I was wondering if you'd like to--
--> '''Sakura:''' Forget it! I don't eat at Burger Castle, for your information. I only eat at well-known franchise restaurants or places that have class...and even if I ate at Burger Castle, I wouldn't go on a date with weirdos like you! I only date popular boys, and popular you are not.
* TheRival: For Ino, in everything from academics to school sports to Sasuke.
* SharedUnusualTrait: Sakura's pink hair is seen as being unusual, and here it's explicitly identified as having been inherited from her father.
--> '''Kushina:''' You're the daughter of Haruno Kizashi, the chief surgeon at the hospital, aren't you?
--> '''Sakura:''' Huh? Uh, yeah, he's my father.
--> '''Kushina:''' I thought as much. [[LampshadeHanging There aren't that many people in Konoha Town with pink hair]].

!!Sai
A student of Konoha High School with a great interest in art. Later becomes Ino's love interest.
* {{Adorkable}}: In Chapter 68, toward Ino when she's flirtatiously teasing him [[spoiler:right before their FirstKiss]].
* BerserkButton: Don't desecrate his artwork. He pulverizes four bullies who do it out of spite, almost killing one before Kakashi intervenes in the nick of time.
** [[spoiler:Following his RelationshipUpgrade with Ino, don't harm her. Period. He sees her as a one-of-a-kind work of art, and if you defile her in any way, Sai will ''brutalize'' you, as Aoi found out when he attempted to rape Ino]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's quite a pleasant and polite guy, and will paint portraits of you if you ask him. Just don't [[BerserkButton destroy his artwork]].
* {{Bishonen}}: How Ino perceives him during their first meeting.
--> '''Hinata:''' ''(watching Sai paint a colorful portrait)'' Such beauty...
--> '''Ino:''' Y-yeah. ''(blushing)'' And that painting's really nice too...
* DeadpanSnarker: He's definitely capable. Witness his response to a thug who he's just locked inside a dumpster.
--> '''Thug:''' Wait--what the--OW, OW, OWWW! C'mon, man, there are rats in this thing!
--> '''Sai:''' Then you'll fit right in.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: He developed feelings for Ino around the time of the Uchiha Zaibatsu arc. [[spoiler:Culminated in them becoming a couple later]].
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Of course.

!!Hozuki Suigetsu
A local troublemaker who butts heads with Naruto from their first meeting in Chapter 7.
* BoisterousWeakling: He can talk a big game, sure, but he's yet to actually ''win'' a fight against a named opponent.
* {{Delinquents}}: He's treated as one, given that he's been arrested previously for shoplifting and has gotten into trouble for illegal vending of concession items, plus his repeated antagonism of Naruto.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Criminal Douchebags Have Standards]]: Suigetsu's got a criminal record for shoplifting and is an opportunist who'll take advantage of Naruto's scheduled fight with Kiba to make a buck off the event, and he'll throw baseballs at Naruto just to show he can...but he takes vocal exception [[spoiler:when Aoi batters Ino bloody]]. He's also averse to the idea of drug use, which is why he quit Arashi's gang in his back-story.
* FiveFingerDiscount: What Detective Ibiki once busted him for.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Yes, he's abrasive, arrogant, selfish, out to make a quick buck at the expense of others, and a former street thug. The others in the cast tolerate him due to his having inside knowledge in the workings of the local gangs, and also because, at his best, he's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* HiddenDepths: In Chapter 107, Suigetsu shows a surprising amount of knowledge concerning the process of sugar production, something he credits to the fact that his father used to work in a food-processing plant. He also has a fairly good idea that successful businesses offer things their competitors don't have, advice he shares with Hanabi for her lemonade stand.
* {{Irony}}: At one point, he declares that he hates cops, due to them behaving in what he sees as a hypocritical manner, citing Ibiki's relationship with Idate as an example. [[spoiler:In the DistantFinale, Suigetsu has become a cop himself]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The heart of gold is buried ''really'' deep, but it's there. It especially shows up in Chapter 107.
* NoRespectGuy: Considering his family history and his own JerkAss tendencies, Suigetsu doesn't get a lot of respect from anyone. Jugo's quite possibly the only person so far who ''doesn't'' put him down, due to both of them being friends for years and having gone through delinquency together, and even then Jugo still fires the occasional verbal pot-shot at him.
* NotAMorningPerson: He's not the early bird that catches the worm, as Chapter 44 shows.
--> '''Jugo:''' C'mon, would you wake up already?
--> '''Suigetsu:''' ''(sleepily)'' Mmm...lay off already, Jugo, I'm dreaming about [[HotTeacher Mei-sensei]]...
* OddFriendship: With Hinata, somewhat. They don't interact that often, and have only had two moments where they have direct contact with each other, but she's the only one he's never tried to insult or pull pranks on, and she in turn doesn't put him down or insult him.
* OpportunisticBastard: Kiba makes his challenge to fight Naruto. What does Suigetsu do? He sells concession items to anyone who's coming to watch the bout.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Jugo's blue.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Wise Guy to Jugo's Straight Man.
* TheTrickster: He tries to pull this on Naruto on two different occasions. Key word: ''tries''. The first time, he tries to get away with hitting Naruto with a baseball during batting practice, only for Naruto to knock it right into his balls; the second time, he attempts to trick Naruto into drinking a bottle of pee disguised as soda, only for Naruto to force-feed ''him'' the uric drink.

!!Tenbin Jugo
Suigetsu's best friend at Konoha High School.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: He's strong and tough enough to give opponents a hell of a fight. At the same time, he's always polite, humble, and ready to help a friend in need.
* DeadpanSnarker: Suigetsu's his usual target.
* {{Delinquents}}: Used to be one, alongside Suigetsu. Given his current disposition, he hasn't engaged in any deviant behavior in a while, though he still hangs out with Suigetsu, who's still carrying on with questionable antics.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Delinquents Have Standards]]: He broke ranks with Arashi's gang, alongside Suigetsu, when the gang started using drugs.
--> '''Suigetsu:''' Jugo didn't need a lot of convincing to split with me.
* FaceOfAThug: According to Akamaru's doggy evaluation. But he's one of the nicer guys in the supporting cast.
* FiveFingerDiscount: According to his own testimony, Jugo used to shoplift and pick pockets with Suigetsu.
* MellowFellow: Usually pretty relaxed and calm.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's not revealed to have a surname; here, he's given the surname Tenbin, which is derived from his canon nickname "Tenbin no Jugo" ("Jugo of the Scales").
* OnlyFriend: To Suigetsu, for all the time they've known each other.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Suigetsu's red.
* SpiritedCompetitor: He sees Naruto as a WorthyOpponent during the Uchiha Zaibatsu tournament.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Straight Man to Suigetsu's Wise Guy.

!!Aburame Shino
A student at Konoha High School, whose father works in telecommunications. He shares Spanish class with Ino and has a liking for comic books and (like in canon) bug collecting.
* CombatPragmatist: How does he defeat Kiba during their qualifier fight in Sasuke's tournament? He evades Kiba's attacks, then grabs Kiba in a submission hold and threatens to break his arm if Kiba doesn't yield.
* CoolShades
* CreepyGood: He collects bugs, he lurks around in trees to such an extent that you won't even know he's above you unless he speaks, and he doesn't talk much (albeit he does talk more here than in canon). Despite this, he's one of the good guys.
* OddFriendship: With Naruto.
* TheQuietOne: Although this story makes him a bit more talkative and social than his canon-series counterpart.
* SunglassesAtNight

!!Inuzuka Kiba
A student at Konoha High School, and the son of police chief Inuzuka Tsume and younger brother of Inuzuka Hana. He's got his dog Akamaru, like in canon (though here Akamaru is a normal dog).
* ActionPet: He's got Akamaru, natch.
* AttackAttackAttack: His main fighting strategy. However, the two times he's shown fighting against a named opponent, that strategy gets defeated--Naruto wins via DeadlyDodging, while [[CombatPragmatist Shino]] puts him in a submission hold and threatens to break his arm if he doesn't yield.
* BerserkButton: Kiba ''is'' Akamaru's button--if you hurt his master, prepare to be bitten.
* BigFriendlyDog: Akamaru again.
* BoisterousBruiser
* CanineCompanion: Akamaru is this for Kiba, of course.
* DisappearedDad: We don't hear anything about Kiba's father in the main story. The seventh Gaiden eventually explains that he ran out on the family, with Tsume hinting that Mr. Inuzuka may have been unfaithful.
* HeroesLoveDogs: Kiba definitely cares for Akamaru's well-being, and the feeling is mutual.
* HopelessSuitor: Was this for Hinata.
* HotBlooded
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Among Naruto's school-friends, Kiba is the last to find out about the other boy's Kyuushingai past. He expresses dismay when Sasuke points this out to him.

!!Rock Lee
One of Neji's classmates in his senior year, and one of his most recurring companions together with Tenten. Lee is energetic and always spouting statements having to do with "youthfulness."
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Like his canon-series counterpart, he initially harbors feelings for Sakura. Sakura herself is quite repulsed at the idea, though she at least manages not to display said displeasure too openly, and she's not above taking advantage of Lee's crush to get out of having to accept a date-offer from Naruto (this being before her CharacterDevelopment).
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yes, he makes cringe-worthy, if overly enthusiastic, declarations about the merits of youth. Yes, he [[CloudCuckoolander acts with hot-blooded acceptance, including literal fire in his eyes]], toward Hanabi's declaration of him being her "knight in green armor." And yes, he can ''definitely'' give you a CurbStompBattle once he's properly motivated, as two convenience-store robbers find out to their agony.
* BigOlEyebrows: Natch. Both Naruto and Ino have pointed them out, much to Lee's displeasure.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Although in a slightly more realistic contrast to his canon counterpart, it takes a cup and then a bottle of wine to get him hammered. This trait is also the subject of a NoodleIncident that took place during an end-of-school-year party he attended, where he somehow mistook bourbon for apple juice.
* CovertPervert: Surprisingly so, especially when he [[MistakenForGay mistakes Sakura and Ino for a lesbian couple]] and has a ''very'' vivid image of...[[GirlOnGirlIsHot related stuff]].
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Lee is mainly a source of comic relief, especially after he meets and is occasionally paired with Hanabi. That being said, his only fight scene so far shows him using the DynamicEntry and RapidFireFisticuffs to brutally put down two robbers with little stress to himself.
* DrunkenMaster: As Chojuro found out to his dismay, Lee's fighting gets...''unpredictable'' when he's hammered.
* EmotionalBruiser: Yes, he's strong as a fighter. No, he's not afraid to wear his emotions on his sleeve.
* SarcasmBlind
* ShipperOnDeck: For Neji and Tenten.
* SpannerInTheWorks: If not for Lee's presence at the Hyuga mansion at the time of Chojuro's break-in, Chojuro and his gang would have successfully been able to rob the place.

!!Tamura Tenten
One of Neji's classmates in his senior year, and one of his most recurring companions together with Lee.
* ActionGirl: More so than most of the other girls in the cast, in fact.
* AscendedExtra: She was pretty much a SatelliteCharacter in the canon series. Here, she gets significantly more importance with her backstory tying in to the events of the 365 days. [[spoiler:Specifically, her parents were killed during a botched bombing pulled off by Fuu, and Tenten herself was later rescued from a life of homelessness by Killer Bee]].
* AttackAttackAttack: Her preferred combat style, though she's certainly capable of defense. However, it gets deconstructed during her fight with Shikamaru in Sasuke's tournament.
* BadassBiker
* BikerBabe
* BloodKnight: She's always willing to fight, as it's a form of training for her.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Being orphaned during the 365 days' chaos, and subsequently having no stable abode due to having no other living relatives, has made Tenten very bitter two years later]].
* CarryABigStick: Tenten carries ''[[DualWielding two]]'' morning-star clubs to her fight with Naruto in Chapter 16.
* CoolBike: She owns a Harley-Davidson.
* MinorLivingAlone: Not in the current timeline, as she's 18 years old and therefore at the age of consent, but for the two years in between the end of the 365 days and the start of the main story, by virtue of having no living relatives on either side of her family [[spoiler:and her parents, in particular, being killed during the 365 days]].
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, her surname (assuming she even has one) has never been revealed. Here, she's given the surname Tamura, which is derived from the name of her Japanese voice actress in the anime.
* OdangoHair: Of course. She's even referred to as "Panda-girl" by the desk manager at her apartment building because of it.
* OneNoteCook: By her own admission, the only thing she's good at making that actually requires the use of a stove is French toast.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler:Tenten's parents died in an assault by the Kyuushingai during the 365 days]].
* PluckyGirl: Even if her opponent is a Kyuushingai, she will not concede defeat.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Tenten might engage in street fights, train very hard, and hang out at bars, but she usually prefers wearing skirts instead of jeans.

!!Nara Shikamaru
One of Naruto's schoolmates, he is also close friends with Ino and Choji.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Just like in canon. As a prime example, he's able to point out flaws in Tenten's defense [[CovertPervert while groping her private parts]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: See what happened to Fubuki and her Ice-Eyes Gang when they broke in his house in chapter 83. [[ToThePain It wasn't pretty]]. They shouldn't have mentioned Aoi sent them...
* CovertPervert: As proven during his fight with Tenten. He also openly sings (alongside Choji) about how TheInternetIsForPorn.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: We know from the canon series that Shikamaru's this. How does it apply in this universe? Well, he's still as lazy as ever, describes everything as "troublesome," and prefers watching clouds to buying ''his own lunch'' at school...yet he was able to point out flaws in Tenten's defense even after taking the opportunity to [[CovertPervert grope her naughty bits]] during their fight in Chapter 24, and knocked Aoi unconscious with [[OneHitKO one punch]] in Chapter 27.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly toward Ino's antics or Choji's appetite.
* NotAMorningPerson: As demonstrated in Chapter 44--he's perfectly willing to skip out on a mandatory school field trip in order to get a few extra minutes of sleep. Of course, Ino and Choji don't let him have that luxury.

!!Akimichi Choji
One of Shikamaru's and Ino's friends, he later becomes acquainted with Naruto. His family owns a meat shop.
* {{Acrofatic}}: Just like his canon counterpart, despite being big on the bulk, he's still fast enough to keep up with Shikamaru during their fight in Sasuke's tournament.
* BerserkButton: [[LostFoodGrievance Causing him to drop his food, even by accident]]. Ironically, calling him fat in this universe ''doesn't'' have quite the same effect (though he's not above punching Naruto for it).
** Also, don't harm his friends or family. [[spoiler:When one of Kazuma's Flame-heart Posse members stabbed Choza (non-fatally), Choji went on a rampage]].
* BigEater: Like his canon counterpart, of course. Sasuke [[FoodAsBribe plays on this]] to convince him to fight Shikamaru in their qualifier match for the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational Tournament.
* IAmBigBoned: His insistence when Naruto lays into him with the "fat" insults during their first meeting.

!!Haku
A third-year student alongside Sai, who also happens to be a member of Arashi's Purple Storm gang, albeit apparently unwillingly.
* AdaptationalWimp: In canon, he was able to totally overpower Naruto and Sasuke during their second confrontation in the Land of Waves arc, and was skilled enough with needles to put Zabuza in a death-like state that briefly fooled even Kakashi. Here, he's a massive pushover who's intimidated by Arashi.
* BadLiar: When he's sent out by Arashi to peddle Gold Sand, Haku quickly outs himself as this--when Fuu sees the pills and asks what they are, he claims they're nothing (she's not fooled). Then, when two of Arashi's gang members--who were following Haku to make sure he'd sell the pills--decide to move in, Haku claims he's just trying to make a deal with Fuu and Tenten concerning the pills; however, the gangsters aren't fooled at his failed bluff.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Natch. He was actually bullied for it.
* ExtremeDoormat
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* TheQuietOne: Hand-in-hand with his ExtremeDoormat status.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Taken UpToEleven when Sakura and Ino first meet him, despite the fact that he's quite obviously wearing ''the boys' school uniform''.
--> '''Sakura and Ino:''' YOU LOOK SO MUCH PRETTIER THAN US!

!!Arashi
A senior-year student who's also the leader of the Purple Storm gang. He's got a history with Haku, Suigetsu and Jugo.
* {{Blackmail}}: Coerces Haku into becoming a drug pusher with the threat of removing his protection of Haku from the bullying he used to endure if he refuses.
* TheBully: The second one seen at Konoha High, after Aoi.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Komatsu Karui
A student in Hinata's Music class. She's introduced in Chapter 88, performing alongside Hinata in the school's music recital. It's later revealed that she takes part in underground oil wrestling.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In canon, she's a HotBlooded FieryRedhead who acts like a textbook {{Tsundere}}; here, she's...not. The author's post-chapter commentary indicates that this is deliberate.
* CulturedBadass: She's been trained to play the violin, and is very skilled at it. She's also a capable fighter when it comes to oil wrestling.
* DaddysGirl: Even though her father walked out on her and her mother five years earlier, Karui is still quite fond of him. Part of it comes from her understanding ''why'' he left--because he couldn't deal with her mother's overbearing attitude.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead
* ElegantClassicalMusician: She's skilled at the violin...but she ''hates'' it because it's only to fulfill [[EducationMama her mother's wishes]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: After getting hit in the back of the head once during a brief skirmish with Naruto, she wisely opts out of continuing.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Her surname comes from the name of her voice actress.
* ProWrestlingIsReal: Well, oil wrestling in her case. It's meant to be a source of entertainment for the audience, but Karui herself is really going all-out against her opponent the one time we see her in action.
* TheQuietOne: According to Hinata's observation, Karui doesn't talk much, but she expresses herself through her music.
* TheResenter: Toward her mother, for forcing Karui to take up music so as to live out her own failed dreams through her daughter.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Karui's dark skin and red hair come directly from her father, but she takes her amber eyes from her mother. According to the post-chapter notes in the eighteenth Gaiden, [[RelatedInTheAdaptation Banna was chosen to be Karui's father in this story's universe]] specifically because both of them are dark-skinned redheads; where Amayo's eyes are concerned, they're only slightly darker than Karui's (her canon counterpart's picture on the ''Naruto'' Wiki page has eyes that appear hazel, but are described as simply brown), with the explanation being that Karui inherited the amber eyes from one of her maternal grandparents and that the eye-color mostly skipped Amayo, whose eye color is less pronounced as a result.
* WellDoneSonGuy: It's revealed she has this issue with [[EducationMama her mother]].

!!Ozaki Haruna
A student of Konoha High School who first shows up during the Tribunal arc, along with her friends (listed below) to hassle Sakura over comments the latter's father has made at a town hall meeting held to discuss the presence of the Kyuushingai in the area.
* AcademicAthlete: The Gaiden chapters reveal her to be the school's top track star. [[spoiler:And by the DistantFinale, she's smart enough to have become a cop]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: Well, she's not part of this story's RoguesGallery by any means, but her canon self was definitely not [[spoiler:criminally-minded enough to cause damage to a hated character's personal property]]. By the time of the Gaiden chapters, though, [[CharacterDevelopment she gets a little better]].
* AscendedExtra: Kind of. In the canon series' anime, Haruna was a filler character who was the daimyo of the Land of Vegetables and gave Naruto support in her arc. Here, she's still a minor character, but one who gets quite a bit of attention (relative to other minor characters) and some quiet CharacterDevelopment, more so in the Gaiden chapters.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: She has this in common with her best friend Emiru.
* CovertPervert: One Gaiden chapter shows her reading a copy of the ''Icha-Icha'' book series alone in her room, even having a nose-bleed on reading one particularly racy story, and then trying to hide the book from her father when he comes knocking. She's even willing to blackmail Kagari and Mahiru into securing a copy of the book for her, in exchange for her keeping silent about their peeping habits.
* EveryoneHasStandards: She's something of a jerk, yes, and definitely holds contempt for Sakura (which, to be fair, stems from Sakura's own past bitchiness), but in the Gaiden chapters, the first thing she does on seeing an injured Naruto is to run over and help him get to the hospital. When her father, who ''really'' doesn't approve of Naruto following the latter's revelation as a Kyuushingai, asks Haruna why she did that, Haruna (who's still grappling with finding an answer to that question herself) cites the Golden Rule of doing to others what she would want done for herself.
* KidsAreCruel / TeensAreMonsters: She was perfectly willing to stand by and mock Sakura while her guy friends were about to assault the pink-haired girl, except Sasuke showed up right at that point. [[spoiler:Then Emiru and Haruna went further and vandalized Sakura's house and her dad's car]].
* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: After being brought in for questioning by Ibiki and Iruka following the confrontation with Sakura [[spoiler:and subsequent vandalism of her house]], Haruna angrily declares that her father will sue the police for what they've done, and indeed when her dad shows up at the police station he's exceptionally indignant at the idea that his daughter could be accused of such misconduct...only to be appropriately embarrassed when shown the evidence of her guilt not long after.
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale: [[spoiler:Emiru and Haruna spray-paint hate messages on the front of the Haruno family house and trash Dr. Haruno's car. Kagari and Mahiru ''were'' supposed to take part, but they chickened out at the last minute]].
* NamedbyTheAdaptation: Haruna is given the surname Ozaki in this story.
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Haruna holds a pretty strong grudge against Sakura, one that lasts even after her CharacterDevelopment begins, due to Sakura's previous AcademicAlphaBitch behavior. Dr. Haruno's comments in support of the Kyuushingai simply gave Haruna and company a convenient excuse to accost Sakura and later vandalize the Haruno family's property]].

!!Kagari, Mahiru, and Emiru
Haruna's friends who first show up alongside her during the Tribunal arc.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played straight with Emiru, who was a very minor character but was still friendly to Naruto. Concerning the boys, Kagari was already an Amegakure-affiliated villain in the canon series and the filler arc that featured Aoi, and while we don't know Mahiru's canon morality, he was definitely an enemy of Kakashi and Minato as revealed in their back-story.
* AllMenArePerverts: One Gaiden chapter reveals that, at some point, Kagari and Mahiru tried boring a hole into a wall of the girls' shower-room to facilitate peeping. Haruna uses this against them as blackmail, [[HypocriticalHumor by making them secure a copy of a dirty book for her]] in exchange for her not telling their mothers about that incident.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: Emiru shares this with her best friend Haruna.
* TheBully: At least one of the boys was willing to get physical with Sakura over her father's comments. [[spoiler:The girls took it a step further]].
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:In the original series, Emiru (there a very minor character) is quite alive and well. Here, she gets murdered by the Spiral Reaper]].
* KidsAreCruel / TeensAreMonsters: They were perfectly willing to assault Sakura, except Sasuke showed up right at that point. [[spoiler:Emiru and Haruna went further and vandalized Sakura's house and her dad's car]].
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale: [[spoiler:Emiru works with Haruna to spray-paint hate messages on the front of the Haruno family house and trash Dr. Haruno's car. Kagari and Mahiru ''were'' supposed to take part, but they chickened out at the last minute]].
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Another thing Emiru has in common with Haruna, regarding Sakura]].

[[folder:Konoha High School - Faculty and Staff]]
A list of the characters who serve as members of faculty or staff at Konoha High School.

!!Hatake Kakashi
A teacher in Konoha High School's Math department.
* TheAllegedCar: He has a pick-up truck that gives him no end of grief just to get ''started'' during the Underground Fists arc.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Two examples. The first time, he readily aided Rin in seeking protection from her abusive ex-boyfriend [[spoiler:Hidan]]; and the second time, he drove off to rescue Karui the moment he saw Yura driving away with her as an unwilling passenger.
* AssShove: Yep, he used the Thousand Years of Pain [[spoiler:on Hidan. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard With Hidan's own knife]]]].
* BadassBookworm: He is a math teacher, remember.
* BadassTeacher: During the Underground Fists arc, where, despite not quite having as big a role as Naruto, he's still the one to fight the arc's baddie, Yura.
* BerserkButton: [[PapaWolf Endangering his students in any way]], as proven when he gave Yura a beat-down for assaulting Karui. Not even his longtime friend Rin is safe from the effect of this, as Kakashi [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness came to an arranged meeting early]] and gave her a sharp dressing-down for potentially exposing Naruto's Kyuushingai past to the public.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Reads dirty books? Check. Eccentric enough to wear a dust-mask 24/7? Check. Habitually eavesdropping on other people's conversations? Check. Well-respected by his students for being a CoolTeacher? CHECK.
* CombatPragmatist: See AssShove.
* CoolMask: Although in this story it's a dust-mask instead of a ninja mask.
* CoolTeacher: He's easily one of the most laid-back members of the faculty, but he still has the respect of the students. He also takes Naruto being a Kyuushingai in stride, when he finds out the truth.
* CovertPervert: Although he fails at the "covert" part following a SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.
--> '''Choji:''' Oi, Kakashi-sensei, what's that book you've got there?\\
'''Kakashi:''' Oh, this? Just a little bit of advanced literature I brought from home. Not a porno, nope, not at all...
* DemotedToExtra: Aside from giving a few much-needed pep talks here and there, his only real role in this story is as one of the recurring teacher characters. He does get a DayInTheLimelight during Rin's character arc, however, and then gets a bigger role in Karui's arc.
* HiddenDepths: So he's a perverted teacher who reads dirty books and gets into verbal spats with Kurenai at every opportunity, and he's quirky enough to constantly wear a dust-mask that covers the lower half of his face despite clearly not needing it...but it's eventually revealed that he sees himself as a FailureHero for not being able to do anything about [[spoiler:Rin's abuse at the hands of her boyfriend]]. The one time he expresses this, though, Rin has to tell him not to blame himself, since there was no way he could have known about it.
* ItsNotPornItsArt: Makes this claim about the ''Icha Icha'' book series that he loves so much. Nobody else is falling for it.
* LovableSexManiac: He's absolutely ''gleeful'' when noting that the skirts worn by this year's batch of schoolgirls are shorter than before, and Rin has to caution him that if he ever tries to peep on her in the bathroom, [[GroinAttack he'll wake up without his balls the next morning]]. Yet he's a good source of advice for his students, and Rin herself acknowledges that, in a serious pinch, there's nobody she trusts more than Kakashi.
* NoMouth: Given that he's never shown to take off his dust-mask, not unlike his canon counterpart. It gets to the point that when he's going to drink a soda, he simply sticks the straw underneath his mask.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Yes, it's easy to dismiss him as a perverted lech who insists [[ItsNotPornItsArt his porn books are works of art]], watches his female students' clingy clothing, and desires to see girls mud-wrestling, but [[BerserkButton seriously mess with his students]] and he'll drop the facade fast and give you the beating of your existence.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In Chapter 97, Kakashi makes an appointment to meet with Rin at Burger Castle at 2:00...and next chapter, he shows up ''early''. The reason? He wants to talk with her about how her previous news broadcast concerning the presence of the Kyuushingai in Konoha Town has put Naruto in danger of exposure, something Kakashi is not happy about.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* SeriousBusiness: ''Icha Icha''. Don't ruin one of those books, or else it's a [[AssShove Thousand Years of Pain]] [[spoiler:(he plainly admitted he knifed Hidan there instead of the back because when Hidan had tried to kill him the knife cut the ''Icha Icha'' book he kept inside his jacket)]].
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: With Kurenai, most usually. He also has a brief moment with Burger Castle waitress Ayame in Chapter 98.
--> '''Kakashi:''' Nothing for me today, thanks. Wouldn't want you to poison me.
--> '''Ayame:''' Humph! Like YOU would be worth wasting good poison on.

!!Terumi Mei
Naruto's English teacher, and also the form teacher for Neji, Lee and Tenten.
* AdaptationalWimp: In this story, she's not a fighter, so she's easily overwhelmed by Aoi's gang and taken hostage by Kimimaro's thugs on separate occasions. In canon, she ''is'' a fighter, specifically being the fifth Mizukage, possessing two bloodline abilities, and quite easily fended off an assault from Sasuke.
* CovertPervert: She's accused of being this. In one chapter, she catches Sai and Ino passing notes to each other and demands that Sai read one of the notes out loud. Turns out the notes are pertaining to Sai's incredible ability to sketch Ino in a realistic manner; Sai then accuses Mei of having expected the notes to be more...explicit in nature, causing the rest of the class to snicker and Mei to blush profusely.
* HeroesWantRedheads
* HotTeacher: Naruto gets caught daydreaming about her in class (and winds up with a RagingStiffie because of this, much to his humiliation and the other teachers' amusement when Mei relates the story later).
* LustObject: For all the boys at Konoha High. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it almost got her gang-raped by Aoi and his cronies]].
* MeaningfulName: As pointed out in her character-bio section for the canon series on this wiki, her name means "shining beauty." In this universe, she's highly lusted after by the male student populace.
* MsFanservice

!!Yuhi Kurenai
Naruto's history teacher. She also tends to butt heads with Kakashi.
* TheConfidant: Mei takes her on as this in the forty-fifth Gaiden.
* HotTeacher: Consider [[FunbagAirbag the way]] Naruto first met her.
* MustHaveCaffeine: In the forty-fifth Gaiden, she complains about how Mei is in ''her'' house, drinking ''her'' coffee, instead of being at her own house at that time of night. Part of Kurenai's displeasure comes from the fact that Mei showed up drunk on her doorstep, and the coffee is to help her regain some sobriety.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite her seeming emotionally cool attitude, she knows how to keep order among the students while still being fair. When Ino and Choji want to kill Naruto over [[LostFoodGrievance a spilled pudding cup and a spilled burger, respectively]], Kurenai instructs Naruto to repay Choji for the burger and then advises Ino to just let the pudding issue drop (especially since it wasn't even Ino's pudding to begin with, but Naruto's).
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: With Kakashi.
* SternTeacher

!!Shiranui Genma
The boys' Physical Education teacher.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Of all the named teachers, he's the last one to learn about Naruto being a Kyuushingai. It's pointed out that this is because he's had the least interaction with Naruto out of the lot of them.
* SternTeacher: As revealed in Chapter 90, when he confronts Naruto over disregarding Danzo's instructions for students who don't have any exams during certain times in the exam period.

!!Mitarashi Anko
The girls' Physical Education teacher.
* AdaptationalWimp: Kotetsu is able to intimidate her by grabbing and squeezing her arm, and Anko puts up almost no resistance beyond verbal protests. If it was Anko's canon self, Kotetsu would've gotten some very bloody retribution just for trying that stunt.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: When Danzo outlines Naruto's destructive past from Uzushio High School, Anko is ''extremely'' interested.
--> '''Anko:''' Ahh...a real bad boy, huh?
* ImprobableAimingSkills: She's capable of throwing a volleyball with enough skill to make the ball bounce off Sakura's head and hit Ino in the face, if only to stop the girls from squabbling.
* SternTeacher: Threatens to make her students run twenty laps around the soccer field for misbehavior.

!!Shimura Danzo
The principal of Konoha High School.
* AdaptationalHeroism: He still has traits of jerkassery, yes, but he's ''way'' more reasonable than his canon counterpart. This includes being willing to listen to other points of view on a given subject, and being willing to admit when he's wrong if he's shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is in fact wrong.
* DeanBitterman: High school variant, and largely directed at Naruto. Danzo gives tacit approval to Neji's efforts to get Naruto suspended or expelled, and openly informs the faculty of the reason behind Naruto's transfer from Uzushio High School and then asks them to watch for and report any infractions Naruto might commit. Notably, he's not shown to behave this way toward any other students at Konoha High, not even Suigetsu, who actually ''does'' have a criminal record.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Given that Naruto caused quite a bit of trouble at his previous school, not to mention the fact that he's a Kyuushingai, Danzo's sanction of efforts to get the blond boy out of Konoha High are at least understandable. Part of Danzo's mandate as principal is to ensure the safety of his students, after all.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He's a ''Shadow Fox'' fan, just like most of the town's populace.
* TookALevelInKindness: It happens gradually and over several arcs, but yes, he does.

!!Vice-Principal Yamato Tenzou
The vice-principal of Konoha High School, he becomes acting principal during the Konoha Gangs Arc.
* AdaptationalVillainy: He shows a certain amount of hostility to the idea of Naruto continuing on at Konoha High, once he finds out about Naruto being a Kyuushingai, and openly protests against Danzo's decision not to expel Naruto for it. This is in contrast to his canon self, who, while a SternTeacher, nevertheless helps Naruto's development greatly. [[spoiler:This is also without taking the Spiral Reaper persona into account]].
* DeanBitterman: While Danzo is hospitalized, he continues his principal's efforts to get Naruto kicked out.
* RememberTheNewGuy: His first appearance is in Chapter 79, but everybody at Konoha High School already knows who he is. Granted, it's stated in-universe that he hardly ever comes out of his office or mingles with the rest of the school populace.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Hyuga Corporation]]
The Hyuga Corporation is one of two [[MegaCorp mega-corporations]] resident in Konoha Town, and is the rival of the Uchiha Zaibatsu, the other mega-corporation. Character entries in this folder relate to its heir, Hyuga Hinata, her father and the company CEO, Hyuga Hiashi, and the rest of their family and employees.

!!Hyuga Hinata
The older daughter of Hyuga Corp CEO Hyuga Hiashi, older sister of Hanabi, and cousin of Neji. She develops a crush on Naruto from the first time she sees him, not unlike her canon counterpart.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Has this by the time of the twenty-third Gaiden, by virtue of being approachable by anyone and because she's just that nice a person.
--> To the residents of Konoha Town, she was ''the'' shining jewel in the city's crown.
* AccidentalPervert: The OutdoorBathPeeping scene with her and Yugito starts when Hinata, while looking around Yugito's hotel suite to try and find her, steps out onto the outdoor patio and discovers the older woman in an artificial WaterfallShower...and then spends the next few moments checking out Yugito's goods while comparing them to what she herself has. A justified example, as [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Yugito]] later admits to Itachi that she herself pulled the WaterfallShower stunt on purpose to try and shock Hinata's sense of genteelness.
* ActionGirl: Unlike Sakura, Ino and Tenten, she didn't start out this way at first. Training under Yugito's tutelage changed that.
* {{Adorkable}}: At first, especially when it comes to Naruto.
* BadassAdorable: Once she learns how to fight. She still doesn't lose her sweet demeanor.
* BerserkButton: It doesn't come up often, but the subject of her not having [[MissingMom her mother]] around is still pretty painful for her even years after the fact; trivializing her sense of loss will result in her breaking the offender's jaw. [[spoiler:Matsuri pushes this button ''twice,'' the second time by desecrating Lady Hyuga's portrait out of sheer spite; Sasuke has to physically stop Hinata from attacking Matsuri at that point]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Without a doubt, Hinata is one of the nicest, sweetest, most polite characters in the story. But aggravate her enough, and she'll verbally rip you a new one ''and'' give you an ArmorPiercingSlap on top of it.
** BewareTheQuietOnes: Following her [[TookALevelInBadass leveling up]], if you insist on being an ass, she'll hand you ''yours''.
* BigEater: Hinted at in Chapter 41, as she orders slightly more than the rest of the gang does when they're eating at Burger Castle. She orders four separate meal items, while the others order up to two or three solo items or single meal combos.
--> '''Sai:''' Well, now, looks like you've got an appetite!
--> '''Hinata:''' Uh, well, not really...
* BigSisterInstinct: When it comes to her sister Hanabi, Hinata will do all she can to protect her. [[spoiler:Including fighting Yagura and Matsuri in separate duels]].
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The Gentle Girl to Naruto's Brooding Boy.
* CombatPragmatist: After she learns how to fight. For her, using a kitchen's food ingredients and utensils as projectiles and [[GroinAttack kicking below the belt]] are perfectly legitimate tactics.
* CovertPervert: Aside from the OutdoorBathPeeping moment in Chapter 43 where she spends a good few minutes checking out Yugito while the latter's in the WaterfallShower, there's the fact that she seems to know that the ''Icha Icha'' book series is pornographic--and that's ''before'' the aforementioned scene with Yugito. The twenty-third Gaiden, set during her twenty-third birthday, shows her out at dinner with Naruto, and while they're waiting for their order, she engages in FootsieUnderTheTable as a way of teasing him. [[spoiler:The same Gaiden reveals her to be into bondage play, specifically as a submissive]].
* DanceBattler: Once she starts training as a fighter under Yugito, Hinata incorporates her previous dancing experience into her fighting movements.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Played with, in that she's not dating Naruto at the time Hiashi expresses his disapproval of the boy; rather, she has a romantic crush on Naruto and has already confessed to him, but is biding time while both of them get used to the idea of being around each other. Of course, Hiashi's objection comes from Naruto's Kyuushingai past and his ([[BrilliantButLazy perceived]]) penchant for disregarding schoolwork.
* ElegantClassicalMusician: She's an accomplished concert pianist by the time the twenty-third Gaiden takes place. Even before then, in Chapter 88 of the main story, she's already quite skilled on the piano.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Much like her canon counterpart, she nursed a crush on Naruto.
* GirlyBruiser: Very much so.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: She wears a purple evening dress to attend the scheduled competition match between Naruto (representing the Uchiha Zaibatsu) and Neji (representing Hyuga Corp) in Chapter 143, with matching open-toed high-heeled pumps. In addition, a bit of [[http://kyuushinartist.deviantart.com/art/Kitsune-no-Ken-variant-art-without-story-title-544842138 variant-cover artwork]] done on the author's [=DeviantArt=] account shows Hinata in a purple dress.
* GrewASpine: The very first sign of her CharacterDevelopment is when she stands up to both Hiashi and Neji after they initially sought to keep her away from Naruto.
* ImprovisedWeaponUser: She makes use of spoons and a bowl of fruit as projectiles and [[DualWielding two frying pans]] as melee weapons in Chapter 180 [[spoiler:while fighting Yagura]].
* LonelyRichKid: According to her own description in Chapter 51.
--> '''Hinata:''' I didn't have any real friends up to that time...all I knew was a routine of school, home, extracurricular activities, and that's about it. Being the daughter of a highly-placed man like my father, that always made me feel like I was on some kind of pedestal. A pedestal I didn't want to be on...
* MissingMom: Her mother died in a car accident several years earlier.
* MsFanservice: While swimming in the pool aboard aboard the ''Mizukage'' liner, Hinata wears a one-piece swim-suit that's nonetheless quite form-fitting, emphasizing her breasts in particular, and also allowing a good view of how toned her legs are. In a later scene, while taking a shower, she takes a moment to check out just how toned her whole body has become thanks to her training with Yugito, and the narrative goes into a rather detailed description of how the soap and water are running down her curves, including her breasts.
* NervesOfSteel: [[spoiler:Using the DynamicEntry on [[TheDreaded Yagura]]? Yeah, she's brave]].
* NiceGirl: A lot of people who know her or have met her have commented on it.
--> '''Itachi:''' She's got a kind heart, that one.
* OddFriendship: With Sasuke, considering that their fathers are business rivals and also the fact that their canon counterparts had practically no direct interaction with each other. Also with Suigetsu, to a lesser degree; they've had only two scenes where they directly interact with each other, but she's not put off by his delinquent past and he doesn't try to insult or play pranks on her (not even Ino and Sakura have escaped that).
* ProperLady: Respectful to all, and uses honorifics wherever appropriate.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Ino's red.
* ShipperOnDeck: She expresses a desire to be the maid of honor at Itachi's and Yugito's wedding, a statement that briefly throws Yugito off-balance. [[spoiler:In the seventh Gaiden, she's a bridesmaid during said wedding]].
* ShrinkingViolet: During her first few appearances. She's becoming [[CharacterDevelopment less and less of this]] over time, though, made most apparent when she stands up to Hiashi and Neji in Chapter 17.
* SilkHidingSteel: If her calling-out of Minato for his crappy fathering skills is any indication. Or her kicking the crap out of three street toughs all by herself after having previously and politely asked them not to bother her or her friends. [[spoiler:Or her slapping Kira in the face for outing Naruto and Yugito as Kyuushingai]]. The thirtieth Gaiden later indicates that she got it from her late mother Hiroko.
--> '''Minato:''' You look soft and weak, but behind that facade is a fire that will burn the unwary.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She's one of only two named female students at Konoha High who aren't trying to get with the handsome "bad boy" Sasuke (the other being Tenten), instead being drawn to Naruto because of his consideration for people's feelings. This was especially pronounced when, after accidentally bumping into her, Naruto helped to pick up her books and then refrained from reading her diary despite having a clear opportunity to do so, simply because she asked him not to.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: How she saw herself at first, regarding Naruto, as she admitted in her diary prior to actually meeting him; she'd previously seen him and started developing a crush on him, but couldn't adequately explain why that was. Then, of course, she got to know him better.
* SpoiledSweet: She may be a child of one of the richest people in town, but she's not stuck-up or arrogant as a result of it; like with her canon counterpart, she's polite and kind-hearted in spite of her wealth and status.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly-girl to Ino's tomboy.
* TookALevelInBadass: She starts out as a complete non-fighter, getting knocked out with an elbow to the face from Zabuza when she frantically but futilely hits him to make him stop the arm-twisting he's giving Neji during the confrontation with the Blood Mist gang at Burger Castle. ''Many'' chapters later, she's become capable enough to beat Sasuke in a spar and single-handedly trounce three random thugs. [[spoiler:And she holds her own against Yagura and defeats Matsuri later]].
* TheUnfavorite: Has shades of this with Hiashi, at first. Although he really does have her best interests at heart, he's not too keen on heeding her point of view on certain things (particularly the subject of Naruto), in contrast to Neji and Hanabi (the former as Konoha High's student council president, the latter as a consistent straight-A student at her school).
* WillNotBeAVictim: The whole reason she decided to learn how to fight, following the incident with Yagura's Blood Mist gang at Burger Castle, was so she wouldn't be as ineffective in future as she was against the gang during that incident.
* YamatoNadeshiko: In addition to being a member of one of the richest families in town (fulfilling the nobility aspect of this trope), during her early appearances, she's quiet, respectful of authority, and desirous of obeying her father. As the story progresses, though, she shows that she'll stand up for what she believes when it counts, including opposing Hiashi's attitude toward Naruto in Chapter 17 despite Naruto's Kyuushingai status. And this is ''before'' she takes up training with Yugito.

!!Hyuga Hiashi
The CEO of the Hyuga Corporation, and business rival of Uchiha Fugaku. He's also Hinata's and Hanabi's father and Neji's uncle, as in canon.
* AdaptationalWimp: In canon, he was powerful enough to knock away several Sand shinobi with one attack while [[BadassBoast declaring that the Hyuga clan was the strongest clan in Konoha]]. Here, he's not a physical fighter, and is barely able to keep Matsuri from stabbing him in the arm when she attacks the Hyuga family at the Samsara Hotel (though he ''is'' a crack-shot with a rifle).
* ArrangedMarriage: The thirtieth Gaiden reveals that his marriage to Hiroko, Hinata's and Hanabi's mother, was one of these, the result of a business arrangement between his father and her parents. It later became a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage.
* [[EducationMama Education Papa]]: Hiashi expects his children to give nothing less than excellence in their academics, to the point that he admonishes Hinata to practice her music lessons so that she may earn a shot at a music scholarship when her upcoming musical recital takes place, in case college recruiters happen to be in the audience at that time (despite Hinata arguing that she's still only in her second year of high school). After hearing from Neji that Naruto had fallen asleep during one of his classes, Hiashi warns Hinata not to associate too much with the blond boy, lest his (perceived) penchant for laziness rubs off on her; that and the knowledge that Naruto had gotten transferred from Uzushio High School for vague reasons (a later chapter reveals that it was for damaging school property while fighting) has Hiashi on edge about what sort of influence Naruto may have on his family's academic pursuits...and this is ''before'' he finds out about Naruto's past as a Kyuushingai, at which point his prejudice grows even more.
* OverprotectiveDad: Hiashi becomes this for his children, mainly Hinata, once he forms the impression that Naruto doesn't take his studies as seriously as Hinata is expected to do with hers. The over-protectiveness increases after Hiashi finds out that Naruto was one of the Kyuushingai, as he doesn't want his daughter associating with a guy who was part of a group infamous for causing 365 days of carnage across several cities in the not-too-distant past.
** ParentsAsPeople: As Kabuto tells Naruto, Hiashi isn't an evil man; he's just not well-equipped to deal with losing family members, hence his over-protectiveness of his daughters and nephew. For perspective, Hiashi lost his wife (Hinata's and Hanabi's mother) in a car accident, and then lost his brother (Neji's father) to cancer sometime afterward.
* SourOutsideSadInside: According to Kabuto.
* TheStoic: He has this reputation as the CEO of Hyuga Corporation.
** NotSoStoic: He's not ashamed at showing immense relief after seeing Hanabi safe and sound [[spoiler:following her being kidnapped in the Abduction Arc]]. There's also his quiet, tremulous reaction to watching Hinata play her late mother's favorite song during the school recital.
* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler:Arranges to pay Naruto's hospital bills after the latter is injured by Mizuki and the Akatsuki group. Granted, the fact that Naruto got said injuries while trying to rescue Hanabi has much to do with it]].

!!Hyuga Neji
Hinata's cousin, and a senior at Konoha High School, he's also its student council president. He is rather wary of Naruto from their first meeting, an attitude that isn't helped when he finds out about Naruto's past.
* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Older Cousin]]: Toward Hinata, slightly less so toward Hanabi.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: For Lee, academically.
* BigBrotherInstinct: For Hinata, though they're actually cousins.
* BrainyBrunette: Of course. Hinata mentions that Neji is a very good candidate to make valedictorian.
* TheComicallySerious: Neji is the student council president of Konoha High School, a stickler for upholding the rules, and as serious as they come. However, pair him with Lee and watch Neji turn into a DeadpanSnarker who'll [[ComicalAngryFace snap]] at any suggestion that [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Tenten is his girlfriend]] or [[DopeSlap slap Lee with a]] ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser sandwich]]''; or, put him in any scene with [[LittleMissSnarker Hanabi]] or [[ServileSnarker Kabuto]] and watch him go off the bend.
* CoolCar: He drives a dark-blue two-seater Porsche Boxter, which he got as his 18th-birthday present.
* CovertPervert: He accidentally outs himself as a closeted fan of the ''Icha Icha'' series. Also, one of the Hyuga mansion servants reveals that she once overheard him going on a [[ADateWithRosiePalms palm-date]] [[ShipTease while calling Tenten's name]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly when Lee's involved.
* DisappearedDad: His dad died from cancer, according to Kabuto.
* InformedAbility: He's touted as a powerful fighter who has served as Hyuga Corp's representative in its yearly contests with the Uchiha Zaibatsu to determine which side will rule the business monopoly of Konoha Town, and in fact he's stated by Sasuke and Fugaku to have won the previous two years' competitions. Then he goes up against Zabuza of the Blood Mist gang...[[TheWorfEffect and is subjected to a]] CurbStompBattle.
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Neji's a Knight Templar Older Cousin for Hinata, seeking to keep her away from Naruto's influence by any means necessary after finding out the latter was one of the Kyuushingai. [[OverprotectiveDad Hiashi]] supports this, but Hinata herself isn't pleased.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* ManipulativeBastard: Neji takes advantage of Kiba's despondency over Hinata's rejection of his (Kiba's) love confession and the revelation that Hinata had already had an AccidentalKiss with Naruto, to manipulate Kiba into fighting Naruto, as part of a plan to either get Naruto arrested (since Kiba's the son of Konoha Town's police chief) or expelled from school (Konoha High frowns on students with criminal records).
* MissingMom: There's no mention made of Neji's mother at all, unlike his DisappearedDad.
* [[MySisterIsOffLimits My Cousin Is Off Limits]]: Subtly done against Naruto once he finds out about the latter's past as a Kyuushingai. Hinata herself retards Neji's efforts, however.
* NervesOfSteel: [[spoiler:Was willing to confront Yagura to protect Hanabi]].
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Neji would like you to know that he and Tenten are classmates and nothing more, thank you very much. Lee doesn't buy it.
* TheStoic: Usually. However, when he's around Lee, Hanabi or Kabuto, he becomes TheComicallySerious.
* StudentCouncilPresident: As noted above.
* TheWorfEffect: Goes up against Zabuza of the Blood Mist gang and [[CurbStompBattle quickly gets one-shotted]]. He resolves to become stronger after that incident.

!!Hyuga Hanabi
Hiashi's younger daughter, Hinata's younger sister and Neji's younger cousin.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Has shades of this, given her frequent waspish remarks toward her own older sister and cousin.
* AscendedExtra: In canon, Hanabi was a SatelliteCharacter who we hardly ever got to see or find out anything about. This fanfic gives her regular supporting character status.
* CordonBleughChef: During her first outing as a lemonade sales-girl, she mixes up a nice, refreshing jug of the beverage...but she ''forgets the sugar''. Lee's the only one who actually likes it; when Suigetsu and Jugo come along and try it, HilarityEnsues.
* LittleMissSnarker: Hanabi is not afraid to snark at either Hinata or Neji.
** StepfordSnarker: It's implied that her dry wit is actually a coping mechanism to deal with [[MissingMom her mother's death]].
* MissingMom: Same as Hinata; it's noted that the accident happened when Hanabi was very young, as Hanabi barely remembers her, aside from a portrait of the woman that's hanging in the Hyuga family's main hall.
* TheNicknamer: Naruto gets this most frequently from her, being referred to as "Straw-head," initially as an insult but later as an AffectionateNickname (to which he responds by calling her "pipsqueak" for the same two reasons). She's also referred to Suigetsu as "Baseball Crotch" (because of his infamous GroinAttack incident from Naruto early in the story), Jugo as "Carrot-top," Tenten as "Panda-hair," and Lee as a "knight in green armor" (though she usually just calls him Lee-nii-san out of admiration).

!!Yakushi Kabuto
The retainer for the Hyuga family.
* AdaptationalHeroism: His canon counterpart is TheDragon to Orochimaru and is himself ''not'' a nice or trustworthy person. Here, Kabuto is presented as a very reasonable individual, even offering to help Naruto get set up for the annual Hyuga family ball, to which Hiashi and Neji have sent the blond boy an invitation with the intention of publicly humiliating him--only Kabuto is also nice enough to warn Naruto about this.
* AdjustingYourGlasses
* ServileSnarker: Toward Neji, at least.
* ShipperOnDeck: He's quite supportive of Naruto and Hinata, even setting up events so they'll dance together at the annual Hyuga ball.

!!Tokuma Natsu, Tokuma Ko, and Tokuma Iroha
Hiashi's in-laws. Natsu is Hiroko's sister, Ko is her husband, and Iroha is Ko's older brother. Their only appearance so far is in the thirtieth Gaiden.
* AdaptationNameChange: All three were members of the Hyuga clan in canon. For this story, their only relation to the Hyuga family is through marriage (and also see CompositeCharacter directly below).
* CompositeCharacter: Natsu, Ko and Iroha all take their shared surname from Tokuma, another member of the Hyuga clan in the canon series.
* CoolUncle: Ko is this to the Hyuga kids.
* TheQuietOne: Iroha isn't one for social scenes, according to Hiashi.
* TheUnfavorite: From what Hiashi recalls of past conversations with Hiroko, she and Natsu drifted apart because Natsu felt that she was this to their parents, who she believed preferred Hiroko over her.

[[folder:Uchiha Zaibatsu]]
The Uchiha Zaibatsu is the other major MegaCorp in Konoha Town, after Hyuga Corporation, with whom it is fierce rivals. Entries related to its heir, Uchiha Sasuke, his father and the company CEO, Uchiha Fugaku, and their family members or employees can be seen here.

!!Uchiha Sasuke
The heir-apparent to the Uchiha Zaibatsu, and the local popular boy at Konoha High School.
* AnimalMotif: The hawk, not unlike his canon counterpart. He even has a fighting technique named "Nightmare Hawk Stomp."
* AnimeHair: Styled like a hawk's feathers, again not unlike canon.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Comes out during his fight with Naruto at the climax of the TournamentArc.
--> '''Sasuke:''' I am an Uchiha! We are the strongest there is! And ''I'' am the strongest Uchiha of all!
* BashBrothers: With Naruto, during the Spa Inferno arc.
* BeautyIsBad: Well, he's the school's resident ChickMagnet, ''and'' he's threatened to go public with Naruto's Kyuushingai status (relenting only because Naruto pointed out that such a move would backfire on the Uchiha Zaibatsu's popularity). [[spoiler:He also essentially blackmailed Shikamaru into staying in the Zaibatsu's tournament when Shika wanted to forfeit, under threat of ruining the Ino-Shika-Cho trio's family businesses if Shika didn't comply]].
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: He might be snooty when it comes to the Uchiha family's wealth and status, but he does show interest in Sakura getting CharacterDevelopment [[spoiler:even before they become a couple]].
* BloodKnight: Best emphasized during the gang's confrontation with Mizuki and his mooks [[spoiler:while rescuing Naruto]] during the Abduction Arc; despite them being surrounded by gangsters, Sasuke just laughs and says it's a chance for them to ''have fun''.
* BlueIsHeroic: He's worn blue on occasion, such as a blue jacket during the Spa Inferno arc. The arm-guards and leg-bracers he wears during the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational and later in the final arc are blue as well.
* ChickMagnet: Just like in canon...not like he cares, again just like in canon.
* CovertPervert: He has some very...interesting dreams about [[spoiler:Sakura, once they become an item]]. Itachi records evidence of it and teases him mercilessly for it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly directed toward Naruto.
--> '''Naruto:''' Whew...can't believe it's been two weeks since that time...[[note]]He's referring to the end of the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational Tournament.[[/note]]
--> '''Sasuke:''' Since the time you lost your brain, ''dobe?''
* FaceFramedInShadow: He pulls this between Chapters 3 and 16, when he's getting updates from his subordinates who've been tasked to observe Naruto's movements and find out all they can about the blond boy.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's quite willing to flaunt his money and connections to get his way, even if so doing might screw someone else over [[spoiler:such as when he blackmails Shikamaru to stay in his tournament instead of forfeiting]], but he'll put bastiches in their place when it's really called for, as he does with [[RichBitch Sakura]] when she badmouths Naruto during the latter's dance with Hinata.
* LethalChef: According to Itachi, Sasuke is still banned from combining tomato juice with milk after ''[[NoodleIncident something]]'' that happened ten years earlier.
* OddFriendship: With Hinata, considering that their fathers are business rivals and also the fact that their canon counterparts had practically no direct interaction with each other.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Naruto's red.
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Kankuro assumes Sasuke is this after Fugaku chose Naruto, not him, as the winner of their fight in the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational and as the representative for the Zaibatsu against Hyuga Corporation. However, Sasuke subverts this by declaring that, regardless of his own feelings on the matter, his father was perfectly within his right, as the Zaibatsu's CEO, to choose Naruto if he saw fit]].
* SchoolIdol: For most of Konoha High's female population, anyway.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Sasuke makes this boast in Chapter 28 [[spoiler:while blackmailing Shikamaru to stay in his tournament instead of forfeiting]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Makes this boast during the same above incident.
* ShipperOnDeck: Subtly hinted to at least approve of Naruto getting with Hinata during Chapter 34, in which he gives Naruto a smirk as he goes off to let the two talk more privately, and then he more openly voices it after seeing them dance together at the Hyuga ball in Chapter 39.
--> '''Sasuke:''' They look good together.
** He also briefly teases Itachi about Yugito.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Much more icy than sugary at first, mind you.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Why the girls of Konoha High adore him.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TookALevelInKindness: After the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational.

!!Uchiha Fugaku
The CEO of the Uchiha Zaibatsu, Sasuke and Itachi's father, Mikoto's husband, and Hiashi's main business rival.
* {{Fanboy}}: Of the ''Shadow Fox'' comic book series, even playing with a few action figures from the series in one chapter instead of, you know, doing his work. Sasuke isn't impressed.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was among the victims of the Uchiha Massacre.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: He and Sasuke, respectively, are a downplayed example. Fugaku is a shrewd businessman, but one scene shows him playing with ''Shadow Fox'' action figures instead of working like he's supposed to be; Sasuke is more the brooding type and isn't impressed by said action-figure-obsession.
* WineIsClassy: The first time he appears in full in Chapter 32, he's shown with a glass of wine, which he continues drinking from in Chapter 33.

!!Uchiha Itachi
Sasuke's older brother and Fugaku's son. He's been keeping watch over Naruto incognito.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Subtler than most other examples in this fic, but still quite noticeable. In canon, Itachi is known for being an AloofOlderBrother to Sasuke, plus he's quite reticent when it comes to his emotions in general. In this universe, he's significantly more open with his family, much friendlier to his associates, and is even [[CovertPervert a closeted pervert]].
* AloofOlderBrother: To Sasuke, though not quite as distant as in canon.
* BerserkButton: Doing, or threatening to do, grievous bodily harm to his little brother is a ''major'' no-no. [[spoiler:Finding out that Mizuki attempted to shoot Sasuke [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown doesn't sit very well with Itachi]]]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: See his BerserkButton above.
* CovertPervert: Yugito constantly accuses him of being this. Itachi doesn't really help his own case when he's using his phone to take pictures of Ino groping Hinata's breasts or of Yugito wrestling Sakura to the ground (both completely non-sexual).
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: He flirted with his fellow agent Yugito for quite a while. [[spoiler:[[RelationshipUpgrade Then they took it a step further]]]].
* LethalChef: According to Sasuke, Itachi had a NoodleIncident concerning cod fish and soy sauce five years earlier. Apparently, poor cooking skill runs in the family.
* MysteriousWatcher: Keeping an eye on Naruto for a period of time.
* MysteriousProtector: For Naruto, again.
* NeverFoundTheBody: He disappeared during the 365 days, but Sasuke strongly believed he was still alive because of this trope. Sure enough, Itachi shows up alive and well in front of his father and brother, though he doesn't stick around long enough for a proper family reunion. [[spoiler:He's part of a black-ops group led by Minato, investigating the circumstances behind the 365 days]].
* ShipperOnDeck: Appears to approve of Sasuke and Sakura, even suggesting to Sasuke that he should ask the pink-haired girl out.

!!Uchiha Mikoto
Wife of Fugaku and mother of Sasuke and Itachi, she's an actress who's formally introduced in Chapter 153.
* TheGhost: Prior to Chapter 153, she was often mentioned but never actually seen in person.
* HappilyMarried: With Fugaku.
* LethalChef: Itachi makes fun of her for it, though Sasuke points out that she at least cooks better than Itachi himself.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Likely not to Yugito's level, but she's at least not afraid to get into the buff when it comes to bathing at a spa.
* StacysMom: If Chapter 153 is any indication.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, she was among the victims of the Uchiha Massacre.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha Town Police Force]]
The characters who make up the members of Konoha Town's law-enforcement body.

!!Chief Inuzuka Tsume
Konoha Town's chief of police, and Kiba's and Hana's mother.
* IWantGrandkids: Makes this complaint to Hana in the thirteenth Gaiden.
* IronLady
* LethalChef: According to Kiba.
--> '''Tsume:''' ''(complimenting Hana's cooking)'' What would I do without a daughter like you, eh?
--> '''Kiba:''' Probably cook the bologna until it tastes like a worn car tire.
* MamaBear: Her first response to news that her son Kiba may be in trouble is to send dozens of cops to the location to arrest whoever's responsible; and when Hana is kidnapped during the Vengeance Arc, she's very hands-on in assisting Naruto with the rescue effort. There's also her threat to Naruto very early on, in Chapter 12, following his confrontation with Kiba (for which Tsume had sent out the aforementioned cop-squad):
--> '''Tsume:''' If my son ever got so much as a scrape on him from you, I don't care if you were part of a group that terrified whole cities, I would stuff a shotgun up your ass and pull the trigger. Am I understood?
--> '''Naruto:''' ''(meekly)'' Yes, ma'am.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She knows about Dr. Haruno's connection to the Kyuushingai]].

!!Detectives Morino Ibiki and Umino Iruka
Two detectives who are usually partnered together, they are initially assigned by Tsume to keep an eye on Naruto after they learn of his Kyuushingai history.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Ibiki was mostly neutral toward Naruto, though he saw the blond as "interesting" after seeing his performance in the Chuunin exams' written portion[[note]]specifically, the fact that Naruto didn't write a single answer on the test paper and yet took the risky plunge of the [[SecretTestOfCharacter tenth question]] anyway[[/note]]; here, he's more of a downplayed InspectorJavert at first, but eventually comes to have (mild) respect for Naruto. [[spoiler:Played straight with Iruka, him being LOVE's mole in the Konoha Town department]].
* AloofBigBrother: Ibiki toward his younger brother Idate, especially after the latter got in trouble with the law for armed robbery. Idate still resents him somewhat for having this attitude.
* DeadpanSnarker: Ibiki, by far. As just one example, here's his response when he and Iruka arrest minor characters Emiru and Haruna at the mall.
--> '''Haruna:''' H-hey, let go of us! We didn't do anything wrong!
--> '''Ibiki:''' Well, obviously, having a fashion sense must be a felony now, because why else would you run--right?
* GoodCopBadCop: Iruka and Ibiki, respectively, utilize this during their interrogation of Konan in Chapter 49. However, Konan [[GenreSavvy knows this tactic well]] and says it won't work on her.
* NiceGuy: Iruka, at least, is much more civil to Naruto than Ibiki is.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Iruka is willing to give Naruto the benefit of the doubt concerning the boy's intentions for Konoha Town.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:They're both in on the secret of Dr. Haruno's connection to the Kyuushingai]].
* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: Ibiki isn't exactly trusting of Naruto once he finds out about the boy's Kyuushingai status, and is in fact quite ready to arrest him the first time they meet, but only relents because Mayor Tsunade and Chief Tsume (separately) give him different orders. What keeps him from being a full-blown InspectorJavert is the fact that, as a Kyuushingai, Naruto ''would'' in fact be wanted by the authorities for his actions during the 365 days, yet Ibiki won't overstep his own authority or his superiors' orders to arrest Naruto (the most that happens is that he and Iruka are ordered to keep surveillance on Naruto for a while to ensure he won't do anything to break the law, and once Tsume calls off the surveillance Ibiki complies).

!!Detective Tsuchigumo Hotaru
One of the newer members of the department, introduced during the Konoha Gangs Arc.
* ActionGirl: She's able to hold her own when the Hawks gang lays siege to the precinct during the Konoha Gangs arc.
* FairCop
* NaiveNewcomer: At the time of her introduction, she's only been with the department as a detective for a month, having gotten her rank within three months prior to her first appearance.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In the original anime (she's a filler character who's not in the manga), Tsuchigumo is the clan Hotaru is part of, though she's not listed as having a proper surname herself.
* WideEyedIdealist: Has shades of this, considering her optimism at Haku's chances of getting a favorable court ruling for having turned himself in for his role in Arashi's gang.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha Town - Other Residents]]
!!Mr. and Mrs. Yamanaka
Ino's parents, and the owners and managers of the family's greengrocer store.
* GoodParents: Theirs is a happy family, from all indications.
* HappilyMarried
* NoNameGiven: Unlike Inochi, Ino's mother hasn't been identified by her first name at all, likely because in the canon series she was only ever seen in the anime. This is particularly noteworthy when even characters who didn't have surnames in canon (like Tenten, Jugo and Jiraiya) get them here.
* OpenMindedParent: Unlike Hiashi with regards to Hinata, Inoichi doesn't mind Ino hanging out with Naruto despite the boy having been a Kyuushingai (though the fact that Naruto rescued them and their store from Mizuki, who'd been pretending to be a Kyuushingai up to that point, likely has a lot to do with it). Also, Mrs. Yamanaka doesn't think twice about letting Naruto go up to Ino's room to visit her while Ino's recovering from a sprained ankle.
* PapaWolf: Inoichi was prepared to take on Mizuki's entire gang in order to protect his daughter. It didn't take, mind you, but points to the man for the effort.
* SecretKeeper: Inoichi was this alongside Ino, concerning Naruto's Kyuushingai past...until others started finding out.

!!Orochimaru
The lawyer for Mizuki and his gang.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In canon, Orochimaru was a major villain for most of the first part of the series. Here, he's definitely not shown as a lawbreaker of any sort (even the bit where he gets bail for Dosu, Zaku and Kin suggests he's just doing his job as a defense attorney).
* CoolCar: He drives a dark green new-edge modular SVT Mustang Cobra.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: He still retains his familiar looks for this story, even though he's a normal non-superpowered human in this universe.
* EvilLawyerJoke: Orochimaru complains that he's going to be on the receiving end of these after he manages to get Dosu, Zaku and Kin out on bail.
** Also, the very fact Orochimaru is a lawyer.

!!Senju Tsunade
The mayor of Konoha Town.
* AdaptationalWimp: Her canon counterpart is capable of [[SuperStrength creating massive craters in solid stone with just her fingertip]]. Here, since the setting is in an AlternateUniverse that's more akin to real life and she therefore doesn't have any of her canon fighting skills, Tsunade is easily taken captive by Akatsuki's Konan, requiring Naruto to save her.
* ChristmasCake: She's declared one of these by Jiraiya in Chapter 95. Needless to say, she does not take it well.
--> '''Tsunade:''' SHUT UP! I just haven't found the right guy to marry, that's all!
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She doesn't have a proper surname in the canon series, though she ''is'' a descendant of the Senju bloodline. The fan-fic streamlines this by giving her the surname Senju.
* NotAMorningPerson: As revealed in Chapter 97, she tries (and fails) to rebel when her alarm clock blares at 6:00 a.m.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She knows about Dr. Haruno's role in creating the Nine Terrors]].

!!Dr. and Mrs. Haruno
Sakura's parents, Kizashi and Mebuki. Kizashi is the chief administrator of Konoha Hospital.
* HappilyMarried: And still very much in love, [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents to Sakura's embarrassment]].
--> '''Kizashi:''' What's for dinner?
--> '''Mebuki:''' Sweet and sour chicken, potato salad with green peas and sweet peppers, with rolls and a tossed salad. And pomegranate juice.
--> '''Kizashi:''' Pomegranate juice, eh? Why must you tempt me so, woman?
--> '''Mebuki:''' ''(suggestively)'' I haven't begun to tempt you yet, Kizashi...
--> '''Sakura:''' Mom! A-HEM!
* TheResenter: Mebuki used to be this, by her own admission, concerning her husband's late hours when he was doing his residency, with the result that he didn't have a lot of time for her. She's learned to accept it over the years, however.
* SharedUnusualTrait: As noted in Sakura's entry, she gets her pink hair from her dad.
* SupremeChef: Mebuki, according to Chapter 35 and the quoted section a few tropes up.

!!Inuzuka Hana
Kiba's older sister and Tsume's daughter, she's a doctor doing her residency at Konoha Hospital.
* CoolBigSis
* CovertPervert: Described as such in the thirteenth Gaiden [[spoiler:by her husband Idate]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Idate]]:''' ...there's freaky, and then there's ''Hana''.
* DamselInDistress: Alongside Hokuto, during the Vengeance Arc, when both of them are kidnapped by Sumaru's Star-Boys gang to lure Naruto into a trap.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly targeting her mother.
* HospitalHottie

!!Maito Guy
A radio announcer and news commentator in Konoha Town.
* TheVoice: The only times he ever really shows up is over the radio when giving commentary on some major news items, such as when he comments on the activities of Mizuki's gang in Chapter 1. [[spoiler:He shows up in person in Chapter 42, however, and again during the Vengeance Arc]].

!!Aburame Shibi
Shino's father, a communications engineer for a mobile-phone provider whose parent company is Hyuga Corp.
* BadassBoast: "If you raise that stick to me, I will break it ''and'' you."
* DeadpanSnarker: "You have an interesting fighting style--beating up people's fists with your face."
* OverprotectiveDad: A fairly mild case, as he's wary of Shino associating with Karui following the events of the Underground Fists arc. To be fair, the events of that arc ''had'' put Shino at risk of severe injury or worse.
* PapaWolf: If you so much as put a hand on Shino, Shibi will not hesitate to smash your face.
--> '''Shibi:''' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner You just tried to flog my son. For that]], ''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner I'm]]'' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner going to flog]] ''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner you]]''.
* TheStoic: He can usually keep his cool and be very methodical about things. [[NotSoStoic Unless]] [[PapaWolf Shino's in serious danger]].
* SunglassesAtNight: Like his son.
* TranquilFury: Does not ''once'' raise his voice even while laying out a smack-down [[PapaWolf to protect Shino]].

!!Akimichi Choza
Choji's father, and the proprietor for Akimichi Meats.
* BigEater: According to Choji, his dad will raid the fridge for leftovers ''in addition to breakfast'' in the morning. And now you know where Choji gets it from.
* NotAMorningPerson: Choza tends to sleep in late even up to 9:30 on a Sunday morning.
* PapaWolf: Did you just threaten Choji? Have fun being beaten like a rag-doll.

!!Ayame
A waitress at Burger Castle, and just like her canon counterpart, she's quite friendly to Naruto.
* AdaptationalBadass: [[spoiler:She helps to rescue a captive Chojuro in the Endgame arc, by helping to gun down his captors]].
* AdaptationalJerkass: A minor example. She's still quite friendly to Naruto and most other people, but she holds nothing but contempt toward Kakashi, who she believes makes a bad [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend not-boyfriend]] for Rin; she even goes as far as to deliberately give Kakashi badly-prepared food while having Rin's order perfectly made, to emphasize her scorn for him. [[spoiler:It turns into AdaptationalVillainy once her ties to LOVE are revealed]].
* BullyingADragon: [[spoiler:Retroactively, Mizuki's goons who slapped her ass at the beginning of the story were doing this, considering she's a trained undercover LOVE agent]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Remember the server girl who got sexually harassed by two of Mizuki's goons in Chapter 2? That was Ayame, though she wouldn't be identified by name for many, many chapters afterward; she later recounts the incident in Chapter 98.
* MeaningfulName: As noted in her entry on the canon series' wiki, Ayame's name means "iris," as in the plant. [[spoiler:Depending on the kanji used, it can also mean "to murder." Both meanings are used in her LOVE code-name of "Death Iris."]]
* NiceGirl: She'll be the nicest server girl you could ever hope to get service from at a restaurant. Unless your name's Kakashi, in which case she becomes an example of AdaptationalJerkass.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: With Kakashi, especially in Chapter 98.

!!Hozuki Mangetsu, Morino Idate, and Hagane Kotetsu
A trio of buddies who are introduced at the beginning of the Underground Fists arc. All three were arrested five years earlier for armed robbery, but now that they've reunited, they're coming back to Konoha Town...
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Kotetsu was a CoolTeacher who was loyal to Konoha, and Idate (a filler character) was a good guy who was merely misled by Aoi and had to leave Konoha because of it. Mangetsu, who was one of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, may be closer to a NobleDemon, as he was stated to be much more humble than his brother Suigetsu ''and'' for the fact that the Seven Swordsmen are considered heroes in their native Hidden Mist Village.
* AntagonisticOffspring: Mangetsu does not have any fond feelings for his parents, but especially his father, to the point that he thinks nothing of shoving Gengetsu and making him fall (on a couch, luckily) when the older man attempts to discipline him. The fact that the family never once came to visit him while he was in prison has a lot to do with it.
* ArmedBlag: The trio got arrested for trying to rob an armored car. Mangetsu got five years in jail, and Idate and Kotetsu got suspended sentences since they were first-time offenders.
* BastardBoyfriend: It's hinted that Kotetsu used to be this [[spoiler:to Anko]].
* BigBrotherBully: Mangetsu has shades of this toward Suigetsu.
* CainAndAbel: Mangetsu and Idate are the Cain to Suigetsu's and Ibiki's Abel, respectively, although Idate is actually Ibiki's younger brother.
* PairTheSpares: [[spoiler:Idate eventually marries Hana, while Kotetsu gets together with Mei]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: Idate and Kotetsu eventually become this, to some extent.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Mangetsu thinks nothing of clubbing a kid in the head with a rock to steal said kid's dog, or of almost killing [[spoiler:his own kid brother]] if his plans to make a quick buck for himself are threatened.
* WouldHitAGirl: Mangetsu isn't afraid to pull this when Kushina confronts him [[spoiler:in time to stop him from stomping Suigetsu to death]]. Kotetsu is also implied to have this in his character [[spoiler:from his brief interaction with his ex Anko]], though fortunately the police show up before we can find out for certain.

!!Hozuki Gengetsu
The alcoholic father of Suigetsu and Mangetsu.
* AdaptationalWimp: In canon, Gengetsu was the Second Mizukage and was considered one of the strongest shinobi of his generation. Here...he's not even able to keep from being shoved by his own son Mangetsu (of course, he ''is'' drunk at the time).
* TheAlcoholic: Suigetsu indicates that Gengetsu used to work at a food-processing plant, but it's later revealed that Gengetsu was fired a year prior to the start of the story, and he's been friends with the bottle ever since. Mangetsu reveals that Gengetsu had had drinking problems even before he was fired.
* CoolOldGuy: ''Tries'' to be this. Mangetsu and Suigetsu both think he's pathetic.
* ParentalNeglect: He's constantly drunk, [[ParentalAbandonment he failed to go visit his older son while the latter was in prison]], and he's not been a proper role model to his younger son.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In the original series, Gengetsu, Mangetsu and Suigetsu are all members of the Hozuki clan, but Gengetsu's not stated to be directly related to the boys otherwise. Here, he's their father.

!!Hozuki Ryuzetsu
Suigetsu and Mangetsu's mother, and Gengetsu's wife.
* ExtremeDoormat: She's a little too resigned to her husband's mooching and drunken ways. Kushina calls her on it.
--> '''Kushina:''' Is it your intention to be an extreme doormat all the rest of your life?
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She's got no connection whatsoever to the Hozuki clan in canon, plus she's a filler character from the ''Naruto'' movies anyway.

!!Mr. Ozaki
Haruna's father, and one of those residents of Konoha Town who are anti-Kyuushingai.
* AscendedExtra: In the canon series' anime, he only showed up in one scene during a flashback. He doesn't even get a page of his own on the ''Naruto'' series' wiki page, to put this into extra perspective.
* LastNameBasis: His first name hasn't been revealed.
* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: He's on the subjective side of this trope and a gender-flipped example, as he initially refuses to believe Haruna could be capable of any wrongdoing [[spoiler:after she and Emiru are held for vandalizing Sakura's family house]]. When the evidence comes up to prove otherwise...the father-daughter relationship gets somewhat strained as a result.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He didn't have a revealed name in canon.
* OverprotectiveDad: In the sense that he really doesn't approve of Naruto being in Konoha Town due to being a Kyuushingai, and therefore he doesn't want Haruna to be anywhere around the boy because of that fact.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: He's long dead in Haruna's back-story in canon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Kyuushingai]]
The Kyuushingai ("Nine Terrors") are nine individuals who were actively involved in a 365-day rampage that left most of the region damaged and its people terrified of them. All sorts of UrbanLegends have been created concerning their exploits, but to date the nine remain steeped in myth.

Tropes relating to the Kyuushingai as a group, or regarding the rumors and legends about them, are listed immediately below; more character-specific tropes are found in the relevant character lists in this folder (Naruto's entry is in his own folder above, while Gaara's and Yagura's entries are in the LOVE folder below).

* AnimalThemeNaming: Their code-names, as revealed in Chapter 3: Shukaku the Raccoon (Gaara), Matatabi the Cat (Yugito), Isobu the Turtle (Yagura), Son Goku the Gorilla (Roshi), Kokuo the Horse (Han), Saiken the Slug (Utakata), Chomei the Beetle (Fuu), Gyuki the Bull (Killer Bee), and Kurama the Fox (Naruto). Yugito later reveals that Killer Bee pulled double-duty with his rapper nickname.
* AscendedExtra: Applies specifically to those members of the Terrors not named Naruto, Gaara or Killer Bee, as those three were major characters in canon (and one was the series' titular character). As for the other six, while their jinchuriki status certainly impacted the canon series' plot, the characters themselves weren't showcased that much (although Utakata got [[ADayInTheLimelight a limelight flashback]] in the anime).
* TheDreaded: According to the back-story, and it's made worse because to date nobody even knows what they ''look like''. During the 365 days, cities that hadn't been impacted by the Nine Terrors made a point of being extremely courteous to people they didn't know, in case said strangers might turn out to be one of the Nine and cause upheaval if crossed. The terror they inspired was so great that Mizuki's taking advantage of their reputation was enough for him to control most of Konoha Town.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Had none of the Nine agreed to be trained by the government, and had the 365 days not happened, it's unlikely any of them would have become what they eventually did.
* ImAHumanitarian: One rumor about the Nine Terrors states that they were cannibalistic blood-drinkers who liked to [[EatsBabies eat babies]].
* MuggingTheMonster: People who don't know who they are tend to pick fights with them disturbingly often. They usually pick Naruto and simply get a beating, but when they get Yugito or Fuu they usually die.
* NeuralImplanting: [[spoiler:How the nine people who would later become the Kyuushingai got their advanced intelligence. According to Naruto, by using this method, the scientists who worked on the nine were able to cram ten years' worth of training into four months' time, and they were able to learn several languages, combat tactics and weapons skills by this method. However, in a variation of this trope, they had to actually practice the newly-gotten skills for the information to stick]].
* OneManArmy: Just one member alone is said to be able to take on a whole gang without sustaining a scratch, or kill 300 people within a fortnight.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: According to the various rumors about them arising from the 365 days' carnage, in addition to their individual OneManArmy status, all nine together could conceivably reduce a city to ashes in less than an hour.
* ShroudedInMyth: While nobody denies that the Nine Terrors exist, nobody is sure what their agenda is/was or even what they look like, resulting in all sorts of unreliable stories about them. Mizuki takes advantage of this to pass himself off as a former Kyuushingai, three months prior to the start of the story.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Again, applies specifically to those members of the terrors not named Naruto, Gaara or Killer Bee; in canon, the others were killed at different points in time by Akatsuki.
* SuperSoldier: What they were trained to be.
* UrbanLegends: As explained above, a lot of these cropped up about the Kyuushingai and the 365 days, within the two-year TimeSkip after the end of that time, and most of those legends made the Nine Terrors out to be superhuman beings based on the level of destruction that was left in their wake. Aside from the rumors and legends listed here, there are claims that collateral damage from any two Kyuushingai fighting each other would be catastrophic[[note]]the closest to catastrophic that's actually shown is when Utakata causes some damage to a parking garage with his whips during his fight with Naruto, but otherwise the rest of the building they're in remains intact; also, Fuu doesn't do that much structural damage with her machine gun despite the number of people she shoots dead[[/note]], that a waiter who spilled some soup while serving a guest had a massive FreakOut due to his fear that he might've offended one of the Kyuushingai[[note]]later revealed to be one of the members of Akatsuki[[/note]], that the Terrors were over nine feet tall and 400 pounds[[note]]a clear exaggeration, as Han, who's the tallest of the nine, is just a little over seven feet tall in canon[[/note]], that they wielded exotic weapons[[note]]confirmed at least with Utakata's bladed whips and Fuu's machine-gun guitar[[/note]], and that the real death toll from the 365 days was between 1000 and 2000 casualties despite the "official" number being 247[[note]]Yugito confirms that the "official" number is false[[/note]].
* YouAreAlreadyDead: According to the rumors, the Kyuushingai could kill people so quickly that the victims wouldn't even know they were dead till after the fact.

!!Nii Yugito
A member of the Kyuushingai, code-named "Matatabi the Cat." Two years after the 365-day carnage, she's working as a government agent, first being introduced in the story when she arrives to warn Naruto about the activities of Akatsuki.
* ActionGirl: By proxy since she was a member of the Kyuushingai.
* AggressiveSubmissive: Itachi surmises that she's this. Yugito doesn't deny it.
* AllWomenArePrudes: Averted with Yugito. While she confides to Itachi late in the story that she's in fact a virgin, she's not afraid of showing off her body, as the ShamelessFanserviceGirl trope below outlines. [[spoiler:And the seventh Gaiden implies she's not afraid to use a few...sexual aids in consummating her marriage to Itachi later on]].
* AmazonianBeauty: On full display in Chapter 43, where Hinata catches her in a ShowerOfAwkward and then spends a few minutes EatingTheEyeCandy. Hinata observes that Yugito has significant muscular tone all over, including her limbs and butt, as well as a total absence of belly fat that allows for showcasing of her abs. Plus, elsewhere throughout the story Yugito is described as being a HeadTurningBeauty.
* AnimalMotif: Hers is the cat. Different characters have at one time or another addressed her as "kitty-cat" or some other cat-themed variation, plus she uses [[WolverineClaws claws]] to fight, she can be stealthy when necessary, and on at least one occasion she chooses milk as a drink order.
* AscendedExtra: In canon, even as one of the jinchuriki, she had an extremely minor role overall. Here, although she's first introduced in Chapter 39, she soon gains ground as a major character in her own right.
* BadassTeacher: Becomes one for Hinata.
* BathingBeauty: Whether in a hot tub or a WaterfallShower, she apparently ''loves'' engaging in this. She actually admits to Itachi that she likes taking baths whenever she can.
* BeneathTheMask: Beneath the tough-as-nails ActionGirl who happens to be [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl shameless about showing off her body]], there is a woman who is scared of being vulnerable, helpless, or in any way unable to defend herself, as well as someone who [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants to be a normal person]]. Itachi is the only person who she's willingly removed the mask for, to date, though Hinata has gotten a brief glimpse underneath it as well.
* BigBreastPride: "No implants...everything's 100 percent me."
* BoobsOfSteel: According to Hinata's observation, Yugito's melons aren't quite the size of actual melons, but they're still impressively sized. Additionally, Yugito is one of the stronger fighters in the story.
* CoolBigSis: Develops this relationship with Hinata.
* CovertPervert: Implied in the seventh Gaiden [[spoiler:where she had a number of, ahem, ''tools'' ready to use with Itachi on their wedding night]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Itachi]]:''' Uh, Yugito, dear...are those what I think those are...? And what's ''that'' thing for...? And what the hell is THAT?
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: At least, going off of Hinata's blushing while seeing her in the WaterfallShower in Chapter 43...plus the fact that Hinata ''keeps'' watching after the initial surprise.
* FairCop: She used to be this prior to her Kyuushingai training. She was fairly high-ranking too, having made detective-sergeant at the time of her volunteering for the Kyuushingai program.
* GoodIsNotNice [[GoodIsNotSoft or Soft]]: Just because she's on Naruto's side, that doesn't mean she'll go easy on opponents. [[spoiler:Just ask Kin, Monjin and Hidan...[[KilledOffForReal oh wait]]]].
* IJustWantToBeNormal: In Chapter 77, she confides to Itachi that she just wants to be a regular woman, as far as her feelings toward her Kyuushingai status are concerned.
--> '''Yugito:''' Sometimes I wish I could just be...me. Not an ex-cop. Not a member of the Nine Terrors. Not a secret government operative. Just ''me''.
--> '''Itachi:''' And...who ''is'' Nii Yugito?
--> '''Yugito:''' Nii Yugito is a woman who likes to take hot baths or cold showers whenever she can. Nii Yugito is a bit of a daring exhibitionist. Nii Yugito likes to make fun with those she considers her friends. Nii Yugito...is normal.
* LittleBlackDress: She is introduced in Chapter 39 wearing one of these at the Hyuga social event.
* MsFanservice / ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Yugito isn't shy about taking a WaterfallShower whenever she can, even if someone happens to come across her that way. She's actually quite amused that Hinata, having accidentally caught her in just such a situation, has thereafter spent a good few minutes staring at the older woman's, uh, assets. Of course, Yugito puts on a bathrobe afterward, since Hinata's there to talk about serious matters and she doesn't want to embarrass the young girl further (but she's not above verbally teasing her about it).
--> '''Yugito:''' Enjoying the view, Hyuga-chan?
* SexyMentor: For Hinata. Also for Naruto, to a lesser degree.
* TheTease: She deliberately let Hinata see her in the WaterfallShower just to get a rise out of the younger woman, as she later admits to Itachi.
* {{Tsundere}}: As revealed in the first Gaiden chapter, she has this attitude toward Itachi [[spoiler:long before their RelationshipUpgrade]].
* TwoGirlsToATeam: With Fuu, during their stint in the Kyuushingai.
* WolverineClaws: Her weapon of choice for melee combat is a pair of gloves equipped with claws that are hidden inside the knuckles, activated or deactivated as needed via a hidden mechanism in the palm of the gloves' heels.[[note]]She also had claws in canon, but there she grew them out of her fingernails as an ability borne of her jinchuriki powers.[[/note]]

!!Utakata
A member of the Kyuushingai, with the code-name "Saiken the Slug." Two years after the 365-day carnage, he has become a serial killer who focuses on doctors and their families.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, he's not particularly stated to be an evil person, albeit he ''was'' one of the jinchuriki who'd gotten disillusioned due to mistreatment by his village.
* AxCrazy: Had hints of this before he became a Kyuushingai. The training he underwent did not help in this regard, although he had the presence of mind to hide his mental illness from the attending physicians and trainers in charge of the program.
--> '''Utakata:''' They allowed a psychopath like me to be transformed into a SMART psychopath.
* BadassLongcoat: A blue one.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Averted, much to Naruto's surprise when they fight. Despite being proficient at long-range whip-fighting, Utakata proves himself capable of using empty-hand techniques, including kicks, if his opponent happens to get inside his range. Lampshaded by Utakata himself when, moments after Naruto's gotten close enough to land a few hits, he shocks Naruto by pulling an over-arcing kick that catches the blond boy right in the face.
--> '''Utakata:''' You think I was only going to focus on ''one'' type of fighting style?
* GlassCannon: Good at dishing out hits long-range (and short-range too, if pressed), but suffers a great deal if he's hit himself.
* KnightOfCerebus: Prior to Utakata showing up, every opponent Naruto faced was out of their league (Mizuki and his gang, Aoi, Kiba), skilled but not malicious enough to actually want to kill him (Sasuke, Jugo, Sai, Shikamaru), or, at worst, antagonistic but unable to follow through with extreme violence for one reason or another (Suigetsu, Tenten). The Slug? He's able to fight Naruto in a potential death-match on equal footing and has no qualms about taking off Naruto's head ''and'' almost does so, only failing due to quick movements on Naruto's part. That's the first indication that things are not going to be business as usual from then on out.
* LeaveNoWitnesses: Whenever Utakata went on a serial-killing spree during the two-year TimeSkip, anybody unlucky enough to be in the vicinity would not escape, even if they weren't his specified targets. It's the reason he managed to elude the law for as long as he did.
* SerialKiller: As noted above. [[spoiler:His particular targets were all involved in the Kyuushingai's training]].
* SlasherSmile
* WhipItGood: Utakata's signature weapon, during his time with the Kyuushingai. Specifically, he utilizes two whips that are outfitted with blades along their length; the blades are strategically placed so that they won't impede the whips' natural ability to bend, making them pseudo-[[WhipSword whip-swords]]; as well, [[WordOfGod the author's commentary]] notes that this was inspired by [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Cho of the Jupon Gatana]]. [[spoiler:It's how Kizashi was able to figure out that the serial killing spree during the last two years was Utakata's doing. When Naruto is told of the whip-wounds the victims sustained, he too figures it out]].
* WouldHurtAChild: Utakata, in his debut chapter, shows that he's not averse to murdering children, as evidenced by the speech he gives their father before butchering him.
--> '''Utakata:''' Don't worry about your children. They are beyond help now...just as your wife is...just as you soon will be.

!!Roshi
A member of the Kyuushingai, code-named "Son Goku the Gorilla." Two years after the 365-day rampage, he works as the curator of the Iwa City Museum.
* BadassBeard: Just like with his canon counterpart.
* BerserkButton: Two of them--attacking innocents and assaulting his museum. Deidara hit both ''simultaneously''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yes, he's a DirtyOldMan and is not ashamed of it...but he single-handedly took out a member of Akatsuki [[spoiler:by blowing him up with a grenade]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's a lecherous old pervert who happens to be the very knowledgeable curator of Iwa City's museum. In the two chapters where he's shown up, he's shown to be quite competent at his job, but spends more time ogling and lusting after Kurenai and recalling how he once tried to grope Yugito [[NoodleIncident and the undisclosed events that happened as a result of that]].
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Yes, he acts like a pervert who just ''happens'' to be a curator...but keep in mind that this guy WAS one of the Nine Terrors.
* CoolOldGuy: He is the oldest of the Nine Terrors, and is perfectly capable of dishing out a beating.
* DirtyOldMan: When Naruto openly accuses him of being this ([[WeDoNotKnowEachOther while pretending not to know who he is]]), Roshi doesn't deny it, even going as far as to give Kurenai a too-interested look. This behavior of his was also the subject of a NoodleIncident with Yugito, as Naruto recalls.
* GeniusBruiser: Roshi worked as a museum curator prior to joining the Kyuushingai training program. Following the 365 days, the first thing he did was to go right back to being museum curator in Iwa City, and yet two years later he's strong and skilled enough to fight [[MadBomber Deidara]].
* LastNameBasis: As revealed with his granddaughter Ajisai in the Gaiden Chronicles, Roshi is in fact their family name.
* LetsGetDangerous: Kurenai notes that the Roshi who orders her to take her students to safety so he can take on Deidara unhindered is a ''very'' far cry from the DirtyOldMan who was ogling her mere moments earlier.
* LovableSexManiac: Although he embarrasses Kurenai with his perverted ways, when it comes to serious topics (such as the casualties of the 365 days), he's quite paternal, especially when discussing the subject of the past with Naruto, a fellow [[TheAtoner atoner]]. Even Yugito, who Roshi likewise lusted after and once tried to grope, has fairly fond memories of him, as does Fuu, who reacts badly upon discovering [[spoiler:Konan managed to kill Roshi]].
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In this story, he's Ajisai's grandfather; in canon, they have no connections to each other.
* RetiredBadass: As far as Kyuushingai activity was concerned.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Roshi pulls a suplex on Deidara early in their fight in Chapter 45.

!!Han
A member of the Kyuushingai, code-named "Kokuo the Horse." Two years after the 365-day carnage, he's living as a pastor in charge of a soup kitchen.
* ApologeticAttacker: He gives a brief apology to a dog before [[MercyKill breaking its neck to end its suffering]], despite the dog being a trained attack dog which had just tried to maul him and got thrown into an electric fence for its trouble.
* TheAtoner: Why he became a pastor.
* BadassPreacher: He may have become a pastor as a way to atone for his sins, but he is still capable of kicking the crap out of people.
* CombatPragmatist: He knows that shining a flashlight in an enemy's face will blind and distract them long enough to give him the upper hand and take them out.
* EmotionalBruiser: When we first meet him, Han is heading a soup kitchen that feeds the local homeless population of his city, plus he expresses remorse at the suffering that the 365 days (of which he was a part) caused...and yet he is capable of handing out a brutal beating when pressed.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He may not desire to go back to the violence of his past self during the 365 days, but while he may not kill you, he ''will'' cause you a world of pain in subduing you. [[spoiler:Case in point: he blasts out Menma's knee with a shotgun]].
* GoodShepherd: How his subordinates and patrons at his soup kitchen see him.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He proves good enough with a firearm to shoot people in their extremities while he and they are on the move.
* LightningBruiser: Despite being as tall as he is, Han is ''not'' any slower because of it; in fact, it's pointed out by Gaara that, during his time in the Kyuushingai, Han would use this to his advantage against smaller opponents who thought they'd be faster than him because of the size difference.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler:He reveals that he had an opportunity to kill Gaara around the start of the 365 days, but never did so; he regrets the missed opportunity to this day]].
* ReluctantWarrior: He'd much rather not fight if he can avoid it. [[GoodIsNotSoft If you force him to, though]]...
* ThatManIsDead: Han declares to Gaara, during their confrontation in Chapter 48, that his former persona of Kokuo the Horse is dead, citing this trope verbatim in said declaration.

!!Fuu
A member of the Kyuushingai, she had the code-name "Chomei the Beetle." According to Yugito, prior to the 365 days, Fuu had dreams of becoming a famous musician. Currently, she's footloose, going wherever she pleases with her guitar.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Fuu in this story is considerably cynical and bitter, in contrast to her canon personality which is much more friendly and happy-go-lucky
* CynicismCatalyst: Her experiences during the 365 days left a sour impression on her.
* TheDrifter: From what Yugito tells Hinata in Chapter 43, Fuu was this before she became one of the Kyuushingai. In addition, Fuu has been living as this in the two-year period following the 365 days of terror.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: She's got issues with people's lack of gratitude for what she did in service to her country, during the 365 days, when she never expected to become a pariah as a member of the Kyuushingai. It leads to an angry MotiveRant when she's confronted about it by Tenten.
* GlorySeeker: Wanted stardom as a musician, and later wanted recognition and honor for having taken part in the government's training that gave birth to the Kyuushingai. That she got neither, because of the fallout from the 365 days, is a source of rage for her.
* GoodIsNotSoft: She doesn't think twice about shooting a couple of gangsters dead to save the protagonists.
* ICallItVera: She calls her guitar "Mariachi."
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A guitar that pulls double-duty as a musical instrument and a firearm.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Fuu has a machine gun hidden inside her guitar.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Killing Tenten's parents believing she was getting rid of a biker gang]].
* TheResenter: She isn't harboring any friendly feelings toward Naruto since she blames him (and Gaara also) for certain events during the 365 days which led to Killer Bee's self-sacrifice.
* TookALevelInCynic: Prior to signing up for the training program that would eventually give birth to the Kyuushingai, Fuu was somewhat carefree. After the year of carnage, she became a ''lot'' more bitter.
* TragicKeepsake: Her guitar was a gift from Killer Bee.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: With Yugito, during their stint in the Kyuushingai.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!!Kira Hachi
A member of the Kyuushingai, who had the code-name "Gyuki the Bull." Also known as Killer Bee, a nickname he had adopted as an aspiring rapper before the 365 days. According to Yugito, he sacrificed himself to an angry mob near the end of that year, leading to the Nine Terrors disappearing.
* BerserkButton: Disrespecting his brother. Anybody doing that would be lucky if he ''only'' beat them to within an inch of their lives.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Just like his canon counterpart, he would often make up some really awful rap-rhymes, but he was still powerful enough to strong-arm his way through a rampaging mob.
* DeathByAdaptation: In canon, while Bee certainly came close to death a few times, he wound up surviving all the way to the end of the series. In this story, Bee reportedly sacrificed himself to an angry mob in an effort to appease escalating tensions over the actions of the Kyuushingai; this event is first mentioned by Yugito in Chapter 43, and then referenced again on different occasions thereafter. [[spoiler:Until Chapter 150's revelation that he's not quite so dead after all]].
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Foolish to Ay's responsible, by his own admission.
* DoNotCallMePaul: According to Yugito, Hachi insisted on being called Killer Bee instead of his real name, as Bee was the name he intended to use once he broke into the music business.
* LightningBruiser: Big, strong, and ''fast''.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's only ever really known as Killer Bee, with a number of fans having attributed proper given names to him. Kira Hachi is the name the author decided to call him for the purposes of this story, with Killer Bee as a nickname.
* PainfulRhyme: Much like his canon counterpart. Lampshaded by his brother Ay in a flashback, in which they were hiding from townspeople bent on killing the Kyuushingai:
--> '''Ay:''' Still making stupid rhymes, even at a time like this?
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: He and Ay are biologically brothers in this story, whereas in canon they're only brothers by way of symbolism.
* ScaryBlackMan: Largely averted, as he's remembered by those who knew him as being a very fun-loving sort. [[spoiler:Played straight when masquerading as Ay, however]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Akatsuki]]
A group of seven individuals (Yahiko, Kyusuke, Monjin, Deidara, Konan, Kakuzu, Hidan) who want revenge on the Kyuushingai for the events of the 365 days, which resulted in them being personally harmed or having lost friends or loved ones, and who are being supported in their endeavors by a so-far-undisclosed individual who furnishes them with instructions and information to carry out their mission.

Tropes about them as a group are immediately below; character-specific tropes follow underneath.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Only in the case of Yahiko, Kyusuke, Monjin, and Konan, who in canon were members of the original incarnation of Akatsuki, which was initially formed as a revolutionary group against tyranny in their native Amegakure. Deidara, Kakuzu and Hidan were already villains in canon.
* BadassBiker: Hidan and Kakuzu, most prominently, though Monjin and Kyusuke have also been shown to ride alongside them while storming the Suna City Prison. Yahiko is later shown to own and ride a chopper-style motorcycle.
* BadassLongcoat: The first time they're introduced together as a group, they're all wearing long black trench-coats with hoods. No red clouds on the coats, though.
* CarnivalOfKillers: Their members include a TrapMaster, a MadBomber, a MasterPoisoner, a GunNut, a TortureTechnician, a ScarilyCompetentTracker, and a MasterSwordsman.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: They may be villains who're out to kill the Kyuushingai, and they may commit murder and kidnapping to get that job done, but even they don't approve of Hidan's StalkerWithACrush tendencies toward his ex-girlfriend. Even Kakuzu, who leads a gun-barrage assault on a police station that results in several casualties, reacts with disdain to Hidan's obsession.
* HeroKiller: They almost kill Naruto ''twice'' [[spoiler:and successfully kill Roshi...at least, until the fifty-first Gaiden reveals him to be alive after all]].
* ItsPersonal: As stated above, the members of Akatsuki want to kill the Kyuushingai because they personally suffered as a result of the 365 days, or they lost loved ones during that time. However...
** ItsAllAboutMe: This tends to be the prevailing attitude of the less-sympathetic members, with Hidan being the worst of the lot and Kakuzu coming a very close second.
* ManBehindTheMan: Akatsuki's mysterious backer, whose face has so far been [[FaceFramedInShadow hidden in the shadows]].
* MurderInc: Their specific goal is the murder of the Kyuushingai.
* OddlySmallOrganization: They're only seven in number, but their underground activities were notable enough to grab the government's attention to the point that Yugito had to be sent to warn Naruto about them.
* StandardEvilOrganizationSquad: Except they don't see themselves as evil--see TautologicalTemplar below.
* TautologicalTemplar: The members of Akatsuki genuinely believe that the things they're doing to exact revenge on the Kyuushingai for the events of the 365 days will be for the benefit of the wider public in the long run. According to them, the Nine Terrors shrouded the region in darkness with their antics, so Akatsuki will restore light to the people by taking down the Terrors by any means necessary. Note that those means include kidnapping, murder, and torture.
--> '''Yahiko:''' We'll do what we have to do. The masses will agree with us, if not right now, then eventually. After all...it was the masses who suffered during the 365 days.

!!Yahiko
The leader of the group.
* AffablyEvil: Yahiko can talk quite casually about the incident that led to him disliking the Kyuushingai, and admits to Naruto that he doesn't really hate the blond boy personally, it's just that they're enemies because Naruto happens to be one of the Nine Terrors. He even openly admits that he finds Naruto's insulting humor to be ActuallyPrettyFunny. [[spoiler:Then he leaves Naruto to be tortured by Monjin]].
* BigEater: When Hidan proposes going to buy food for the group in Chapter 62, Yahiko's order for himself consists of a double-patty burger (heavy on the pickles and mayo) with a large serving of fries, plus two fish sandwiches. Lampshaded by Kakuzu moments later.
--> '''Kakuzu:''' I'm surprised you haven't gotten obese yet, with your eating habits.
* ColdSniper: He's proven to be very proficient with a sniper-rifle in Chapter 139.
* CompositeCharacter: This version of Yahiko essentially has Deva Path Pain's facial piercings and canon Yahiko's brown eyes and affable personality.
* CrusadingWidower: [[spoiler:His wife and children were trampled to death during a stampede caused by terror of the Kyuushingai in their town during the 365 days]].
* TheDragon: To Akatsuki's benefactor, as he's the one who receives and distributes or carries out the individual's instructions to the group.
* GunNut: Not to Kakuzu's extreme, but he's got a fair variety when it comes on to firearms. So far, we've seen him with two Browning 9mm pistols, a sniper-rifle, a pistol-grip shotgun, and a .357 Magnum pistol.
* GunsAkimbo: At one point, he arms himself with two Browning 9mm pistols, and holds one in each hand during a confrontation in Chapter 142.
* MalevolentMutilation: He's got his familiar piercings through his nose-bridge. In this universe, they were put there as a medical aid to help his facial bones heal after he got trampled by a stampede that happened in Ame Town during the 365 days [[spoiler:and that led to the deaths of his wife and children]].
* SlouchOfVillainy: Yahiko really likes reclining on couches.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:His black jacket with the red cloud on the back was a gift from his kids]].
* TrapMaster: He set up a complex trap involving trigger-switches for bombs inside Gaara's family mausoleum [[spoiler:and rigged his own house to blow up if it was ever broken into]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Orange Hair]]

!!Kyusuke
Yahiko's second-in-command and the resident sword specialist.
* BondVillainStupidity: Has to learn the hard way that talking is ''not'' a free action when one's opponent is a gunslinger.
* CrazyPrepared: Early in his confrontation with Itachi in Chapter 86, Kyusuke gets shot four times in the chest...only to reveal moments later that he was wearing a bulletproof vest under his shirt. Keep in mind, Kyusuke was there to kill Yugito, but had no prior idea he'd be facing Itachi, much less that Itachi would be packing heat. [[spoiler:Not that it keeps him from being shot in the leg later in the fight]].
* TheDragon: To Yahiko.
* MasterSwordsman: With [[KatanasAreJustBetter a katana]] being his preferred weapon [[spoiler:and what he uses to kill Utakata]].
* TheNondescript: Aside from [[RedRightHand his cat-like eyes]], Kyusuke's face is largely average-looking, as he himself mentally notes in Chapter 85.

!!Hidan
One of the stronger and crazier members of Akatsuki, he specializes in scythe-blades and shadowing of persons.
* AxCrazy
* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler:Stabs Kakashi in the chest and leaves him for dead without actually checking if he is in fact dead. This comes back to bite him when it's revealed Kakashi's ''Icha Icha'' book served as a PocketProtector]].
* DomesticAbuse: In his back-story, Hidan was this toward his girlfriend [[spoiler:Nohara Rin]]; it was so bad she actually had to take advantage of the Nine Terrors' rampage in their neighborhood on one particular night just to get away from him.
* ThePeepingTom: He set up a hidden camera in his ex-girlfriend's shower for voyeuristic spying.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: His specialty within Akatsuki.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: [[spoiler:Getting "[[AssShove a thousand years of pain]]" [[HoistByHisOwnPetard with your own knife]] will do that]].
* SinisterScythe: Although in this story he utilizes two short-handled kama blades instead of his more familiar giant three-bladed scythe. The author's post-chapter commentary explains that he couldn't think of a plausible way to incorporate the giant scythe into the story's setting without it being too cumbersome.
* SlasherSmile
* StalkerWithACrush: Hidan is this for the reporter Nohara Rin [[spoiler:who's also his ex-girlfriend]].
* VillainsOutShopping: In Chapter 62, Hidan goes out to buy food for Yahiko and Kyusuke.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* WouldHitAGirl: Whether the girl in question can fight back [[DomesticAbuse or not]].

!!Monjin
The group's torture and interrogation specialist.
* BerserkButton: Monjin has two--the Kyuushingai, and anyone [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas insulting his mother]]. [[spoiler:This is because his mother was one of the first casualties of the 365 days]]. And if you're a Kyuushingai ''and'' you trigger that second button...''boy howdy''.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Monjin has a wrist-equipped blade on one arm that he normally keeps hidden beneath his sleeve.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: [[spoiler:Monjin's mother was among the casualties in the initial slaughter that kicked off the 365 days. To this day, Monjin still doesn't take it well]].
* TortureTechnician: He uses his arm-blade to cut [[spoiler:the captive Naruto]] repeatedly [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique in order to get the names of the people affiliated with the Kyuushingai out of him]].

!!Deidara
The team's explosives expert.
* BlindedByTheLight: Deidara utilizes flash-bang grenades that have this effect, as part of his arsenal.
* CarryABigStick: Wields a baton for close-range combat.
* CombatPragmatist: He sees spitting in an opponent's eye as a perfectly viable combat strategy.
* EyeScream: The reason Deidara joined Akatsuki was because he lost an eye during the 365 days, although we're not told what exactly happened to result in him losing that eye. He covers the injury with an eye-patch.
* HandicappedBadass: He's blind in one eye from his experiences in the 365 days. He's still able to fight ''two'' of the Kyuushingai (Naruto and Roshi) simultaneously without strain.
* HavingABlast: Of course.
* KnifeNut: He's also armed with throwing knives.
* MadBomber: Natch. Instead of bomb-style jutsus, he uses real grenades and explosives that can be triggered via remote control.
* VerbalTic: Yes, he still has it, hmm!

!!Konan
The group's poison expert.
* BondVillainStupidity: She managed to ambush Naruto and poison him. If she hadn't stuck around afterward to try and kill him up close, he'd have been dead right there.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Konan lost her husband and her unborn child during the 365 days]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Konan was an ordinary nurse before the 365 days. Following that incident and the trauma she underwent as a result of it, she put her medical skill to use as an assassin in Akatsuki's employ.
* MasterPoisoner: [[JustifiedTrope It's a skill she developed from her time as a nurse]]. She concocts a poison which she uses on Naruto (via dart to the neck) during their confrontation in Chapter 46 [[spoiler:and which she'd used to kill Roshi in the previous chapter]].
--> '''Konan:''' The weakness you're feeling and your loss of voice are only the first symptoms...in another minute, you'll experience nerve numbness; in five minutes, inability to swallow; in ten minutes, gradual bodily paralysis beginning with the hands and spreading elsewhere. In fifteen minutes, you'll die without the antidote.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: As in canon, Konan is the only female in the group.
* VengefulWidow: [[spoiler:Her husband's death, and the miscarriage she suffered from the stress of that event, led to her joining Akatsuki to get revenge]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Kakuzu
The team's gun enthusiast, he also excels at photographing targets.
* {{BFG}}: M60 machine gun.
* CovertPervert: Kakuzu expresses a wish to see the camera footage of Hidan's ex-girlfriend in the shower...moments after [[HypocriticalHumor scolding Hidan for breaking into the woman's house to set up the hidden camera in the first place]].
--> '''Hidan:''' [[LampshadeHanging Hypocrite]].
* GatlingGood: Makes good use of an M60 machine gun during his calculated assault on the Konoha precinct.
* GlasgowGrin: As in canon. In this story, his scars are stated to be as a result of his being a victim of the 365 days.
* GunNut: He comes to the impending siege on the Konoha Town police station with a whole pickup truck full of guns, not only for his own use, but also to provide weaponry to the Hawks gang.
* ManipulativeBastard: Granted, it didn't take the Hawk gang much to agree to help him besiege the Konoha precinct, considering the police were holding the Kyuushingai who happened to shoot up several of the gang's members sometime earlier.
* MoreDakka: Kakuzu carries an Uzi as his sidearm, and in his fight with Fuu wields an ''M60 machine gun''.

[[folder:LOVE]]
LOVE is an underground crime syndicate led by former Kyuushingai member Ishida Gaara and his siblings, Kankuro and Temari, and overseen by its top strike force, the Council of the Dawn (members Matsuri, Darui, Chojuro, Kurotsuchi, Menma, Yura, Sumaru, and newest recruit and fellow Kyuushingai member Yagura). LOVE is stated to have operatives in different sectors of society, and in recent history they have begun production and distribution of Gaara's new drug-pill, Gold Sand, plus being involved in other types of crime across the region. Each member of the Council of the Dawn holds a specific seat named after a natural element, with matching medallions assigned to them whenever they have meetings together. Their overall goals so far remain shrouded in mystery, though they appear to be manipulating certain events from behind the scenes...

Tropes relating to the group as a whole, and to the field operatives identified by their code-names during the story, are listed immediately below; character-specific tropes for the Council of the Dawn are listed further down.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Just about every member of LOVE, particularly those who make up the Council of the Dawn, was on the heroes' side in canon.[[note]]Gaara, Kankuro and Temari started out as antagonists during the Chuunin Exam arc but later underwent a HeelFaceTurn and became allies of Konoha, with Gaara in particular becoming one of Naruto's closest friends. Matsuri was a love interest for Gaara and also joined him and his siblings as an ally to Konoha and the other villages during the Fourth Great Ninja War. Chojuro, Darui and Kurotsuchi (of the Hidden Mist, Hidden Cloud and Hidden Stone villages, respectively) were allies of Konoha during said war. Yagura, while having a reputation as a bloodthirsty leader during his time as the Fourth Mizukage, was later revealed to have been [[PuppetKing manipulated]] from behind the scenes, and wasn't really genuinely evil at all. Sumaru was a filler character and native of Hoshigakure who started out rude and aloof, but later became a friend to Naruto. Yura and Menma are more of the GreyAndGrayMorality range, as Yura, a Sunagakure native, was revealed to be a sleeper agent for Sasori but was nonetheless loyal to Sunagakure, and Menma was a filler character who inflicted LaserGuidedAmnesia on himself after taking part in the slaughter of a village, and at the end of his arc pulled a RedemptionEqualsDeath when that effort failed. Where the field agents are concerned, none of them were ever identified as being outright evil in canon; three of them were affiliated with Konoha, one was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces, one was a filler ally of Naruto's, and one was a civilian (Nagato's father Ise) who was killed during an attack on the Hidden Rain Village by Konoha's forces in the back-story.[[/note]]
* BadassCrew: Most members of the Council of the Dawn are leaders of their own criminal groups besides. That's without factoring in that two of the Council members are former Kyuushingai.
* BigFancyHouse: Gaara and his siblings own a summer estate that they use when chairing meetings of the Council of the Dawn, and that is maintained by Matsuri in their absence. The mansion itself is a three-story building in the style of a Victorian-era mansion, painted blue with some sections designed using unpainted cut-stone and marl. It also has a courtyard with a large water fountain and a roundabout driveway, and the property is surrounded by fruit trees, a greenhouse, and a cliff-side view of the ocean.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: As explained in Chapter 101, while the group might engage in a variety of crimes, they draw the line at rape or any other kind of sexual assault. They have a [[PragmaticVillainy practical reason]] for this, as LOVE employs female members and they wouldn't be able to do that if they sanctioned rape. [[spoiler:Sumaru's failure to make sure his gang members adhered to this, including reports that he sanctioned [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty what they wanted to do to the captive Hana and Hokuto]], leads to him and them getting killed by Matsuri]].
* IslandBase: The above-mentioned BigFancyHouse where LOVE holds its council-meetings is located on the outskirts of Whirl City, which is situated on an island in Water County, far removed from the continent's mainland.
* NiceToTheWaiter: Most members of the Council see nothing strange in helping their subordinates, even Matsuri's house servants. For instance, when one servant stumbles and is in danger of dropping the centerpiece for the group's dinner, Matsuri, Darui and Chojuro are quick to grab the tray and keep it from spilling.
* StandardEvilOrganizationSquad: The Council of the Dawn acts as this, given that its members are all engaged in criminal activity geared toward furthering LOVE's interests.
* TheSyndicate: LOVE as a whole is this.
* WeAreEverywhere: As Gaara indicates to Yagura when first recruiting him.
---> '''Gaara:''' LOVE has snaked its way everywhere in the last two years, Yagura-san.
** This is later proven by the existence of the named field agents, Hawk's Eye, Death Iris, Dolphin, Ring-Eyes, Perimeter and Echo. Their civilian jobs are (respectively) a courthouse bailiff, a restaurant waitress, a police officer, a hotel employee, a maid, and a telecommunications service rep.
* {{Yakuza}}: LOVE has some of these as contacts.

!!Ishida Gaara
A former member of the Kyuushingai, with the code-name "Shukaku the Raccoon." Two years after the 365 days, he is the leader of the underground syndicate LOVE. As chairman of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Lacuna[[note]]Void[[/note]].
* AffablyEvil: When he's being friendly or at least civil to someone he considers an adversary, it's not a put-on. For instance, he's fairly chummy toward Yugito and Itachi, despite them being openly hostile to him, when he shows himself to them at the Konoha High School music recital, and when he meets Hinata much later, he's quite polite while still letting her know he's not a nice guy.
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer: He's the main one in the story, as he's the man behind Gold Sand, a drug of his own creation. He wants to increase LOVE's power-base through distribution of the drug across the region.
* AmbitionIsEvil: In Chapter 48, Naruto recalls that Gaara wanted to use the knowledge he'd gained from training as a Kyuushingai to take control of the entire region.
* ArchEnemy: Is indicated to be this for Naruto. [[spoiler:It's revealed that the 365 days got kicked off when Naruto confronted Gaara over an as-yet-unrevealed plot the latter was preparing to implement that would have resulted in numerous deaths, making Gaara the underlying factor behind the year of chaos that followed]].
* ArmorPiercingAttack: His Twin Tanuki Fist technique, designed to break the target's ribs.
* BerserkButton: Endangering [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes his uncle Yashamaru]], the only relative he and his siblings have left following the deaths of their parents. [[spoiler:Learning that Minato gave LOVE's missile-beacons to Yashamaru results in Gaara popping several Gold Sand pills and trying repeatedly to kill Naruto]].
* BigBad: One of two candidates along with Akatsuki's mysterious backer. Among other things, he's made it possible for Yagura and his Blood Mist Gang to attack Naruto and his friends, and he's the creator and main supplier of the Gold Sand drug that's taken the focus of the most recent chapters. On top of which, his LOVE organization is stated to have recruits [[WeAreEverywhere in every facet of society]]. [[spoiler:And in the past, he was masterminding a plot that would have resulted in mass casualties, and Naruto's opposition to it and attempted stopping of it led to the 365 days]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: His only desire is to take over the government [[spoiler:as revenge for framing his parents for treason]], and he will murder or manipulate anyone in his way in order to accomplish that, the feelings of his victims be damned in the process. As he bluntly tells Hinata when they meet, not even a person as nice as her would be able to prevent him from carrying out his plan. However, in flashbacks, it's shown that despite not getting along with Naruto while they were training together, Gaara was still willing to [[WeCanRuleTogether offer him a chance to rule the country together]], only really turning his hostility onto Naruto when the other boy violently rejected his proposal.
* BondVillainStupidity: Both Temari and Matsuri are concerned that Gaara might be afflicted by this, as he hasn't just killed Naruto outright as they feel would be the better thing for him to do to get rid of his only viable opposition.
* CreepyMonotone: Often, though he's certainly capable of showing emotion.
* CulturedBadass / WickedCultured: He knows how to enjoy classical music, and will go out of his way to attend a music recital if it'll interest him. At the same time, he was a member of the Kyuushingai ''and'' the leader of the LOVE syndicate.
* DeathGlare: He's good at displaying this, as evidenced during Chapter 187 when he [[TranquilFury calmly]] chews out Matsuri for acting on her own and potentially endangering LOVE's larger mission. During that particular dressing-down, Matsuri pointedly avoids making eye-contact with him for fear that, if she sees the anger that's coating his tone, she'll actually drop dead right there.
* DiabolicalMastermind: Aside from everything else that's been listed about him here so far, he had a plan that would have, according to him, involved a lot of deaths under controlled circumstances with the aim of taking over the region. However, Naruto's intervention and the 365 days prevented that from happening. [[spoiler:Except that he was able to use the chaos and panic generated by the 365 days as a frame for his original plan anyway--while unplanned by him, and resulting in more deaths than he'd intended, the populace's resulting fear still ended up working in his favor. Helping this is the fact that Kankuro and Temari went out and incited several gangs to go to war with each other, compounding that region-wide terror further]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: When his uncle Yashamaru is taken captive in Chapter 132, Gaara is quick to go with Kankuro and Temari to rescue him.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Gaara is the leader of the criminal LOVE organization and is willing to team up with fellow criminal Yagura to attack Naruto and his friends, when he confronts Han he is at least willing to accede to Han's request that violence not be perpetrated inside the church where they're at.
* EvilCounterpart: To Naruto. Both of them trained together in the program that would lead them to becoming members of the Nine Terrors, but they couldn't be any more different: Gaara lost both of his parents, while Naruto's parents are still alive; Gaara wanted to use his newly-gained skills to take over the country, while Naruto wanted to use his skills in service to said country; Gaara doesn't care about the number of people he killed during the 365 days or after, while Naruto [[TheAtoner can never forget the exact number he personally killed during the year of terror]]; and Gaara has used his skills following the 365 days to become a crime boss, while Naruto largely hides his talents so as not to unduly alarm the public.
* EvilRedhead
* FaceFramedInShadow: How he's first introduced in Chapter 33, before being properly revealed in Chapter 39.
* FantasticDrug: Gaara is the creator of the Gold Sand drug, which [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer he wants to use to take control of the country]]. Although the effects of the drug tend to vary depending on how it's applied, Gaara at least has no qualms about using it himself.
* FieryRedhead: Largely averted; although he is a redhead, he usually keeps quite calm and even-tempered, and even when he's angry [[TranquilFury he's still calm about it]]. [[spoiler:Until his VillainousBreakdown, at which point it's played straight]].
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has a scar on his forehead from when Naruto smashed him head-first onto a drinking glass. Due to how the glass splintered when it cut him, the scar is shaped like his iconic "love" kanji-mark.
* HeroKiller: Attempted twice with Han, but failed both times. The first time, Han actually was close to dying afteyr Gaara left him bleeding and unconscious in the alley outside Han's soup kitchen, but Fuu nursed him back to health; and the second time, Gaara overpowered Han and would have killed him right there if he hadn't been interrupted [[spoiler:by Fuu being thrown off Kira's rooftop]]. He later demonstrates that he could easily do this with Naruto, only restraining himself because he wants Naruto to see firsthand the culmination of Gaara's take-over plot; and in the second part of their battle, Gaara makes no less than ''three'' attempts to kill Naruto, only failing because Naruto manages to counter his efforts in time.
* IGaveMyWord: And he always keeps it.
* ImprobableAge: 15 years old, and he's been head of a criminal syndicate for two years. Of course, he does have his siblings as his CoDragons, and they're both older than him.
* ItsAllAboutMe: As long as he can get his objectives fulfilled, everyone else can burn for all he cares.
* ManipulativeBastard: As outlined in Chapter 101, he was able to accumulate a sizable fortune and take over numerous companies by way of threats and blackmail...and that was ''before'' he underwent the Kyuushingai training program. [[spoiler:He also had Kankuro and Temari spread a lot of misinformation to the different gangs in the region immediately after the start of the 365 days, resulting in the mass slaughter that followed when the gangs attacked each other, and this resulted in the Kyuushingai being blamed for the resulting deaths]].
* MilitaryBrat: Both of his parents were in the military; his father was captain of his own unit, and his mother was a driver.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, Gaara's family name (assuming there is one to speak of) has never been revealed. His surname in this story comes from the name of his Japanese voice actor.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast / RedBaron: According to the draft-notes, aside from his Kyuushingai epithet of "Shukaku the Raccoon," Gaara was known as the "Blood-Haired Butcher." He doesn't actually get called this in the story proper, however.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Most of his appearances so far have consisted of him sitting on his throne in his lair, in some cases deep in thought, before engaging in conversation with one of his lackeys. He has gotten up twice so far, though, and each time has been significant. [[spoiler:The first time, he fought Han and left him for dead; the second time, he attended Konoha High's music recital and left a message for Naruto with Yugito and Itachi]].
* PragmaticVillain: The only reason Naruto has not been shot by a sniper yet is that Gaara won't waste LOVE's resources on a personal grudge unless Naruto starts directly opposing his operations (not that he intends to let him live the easy life). He's also investigating on the mysterious backer of Akatsuki, as whoever knows the identities of the Kyuushingai is most likely a danger to LOVE and Gaara.
* TheResenter: The real reason he hates Naruto, as revealed during the Endgame arc. When they both came into their government-backed training program, Gaara joined up as part of his plan to pursue national conquest and revenge [[spoiler:against the government for framing his parents for treason]], while Naruto joined up out of an optimistic eagerness to serve his country. That Naruto had both parents still alive while Gaara was continually mourning his parents' deaths didn't help the situation any.
--> '''Gaara:''' So naïve...so optimistic...so cheerful...bad enough you were so happy while I was miserable, but to have the nerve to be happy because you had everything I didn’t--there’s no way I could ever forgive you for that!
* SiblingsInCrime: With Temari and Kankuro.
* SlasherSmile: Sports a rather sinister one during his fight with Naruto in the final arc [[spoiler:after he's swallowed three Gold Sand pills in the midst of his VillainousBreakdown, on top of the one he'd previously taken to give himself an edge]].
* SoftSpokenSadist: He's not one for raising his voice in any situation, even if he's angry. [[spoiler:Except when under the effects of Gold Sand]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: According to Yashamaru, Gaara was this before his parents' deaths. Finding out exactly how they died caused a very significant change in him.
* VillainousFriendship: With Yagura, including prior to the 365 days.
* VisionaryVillain: He envisions order created through chaos, as he explains in Chapter 101. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the plan he was going to implement before Naruto confronted him had this in mind...but despite that plan being halted, Gaara was still able to take advantage of the chaos and fear generated by the 365 days, which ended up firmly establishing the framework for his plan anyway--he now plans to take advantage of the public's desire not to have a repeat of that period]].
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: [[spoiler:After dosing up on Gold Sand pills during his VillainousBreakdown, going hand-in-hand with a SlasherSmile]].

!!Ishida Temari
Gaara's older sister and his second-in-command and personal bodyguard in LOVE. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, she holds the seat of Beacon[[note]]Light[[/note]].
* BodyguardingABadass: Both she and Kankuroo do this with Gaara.
* ColdSniper: She tries to kill Naruto and Chief Kaiza with a sniper-rifle in Chapter 171. [[spoiler:Fortunately, Naruto had the foresight to wear a metal plate behind a bandanna over his forehead]].
* CoolBigSis: Toward Matsuri.
* CoolCar: She drives a red BMW Sedan to chauffeur Gaara in Chapter 100.
* DarkActionGirl: Natch.
* TheDragon: To Gaara. Also CoDragons with Kankuro.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Like Gaara and Kankuro, she cares about their uncle Yashamaru. Makes sense, seeing he was their ParentalSubstitute.
* MilitaryBrat: Same as Gaara.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her belief, concerning the best way to keep Naruto from opposing LOVE.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Gaara's entry above.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: She strongly believes Gaara should just murder Naruto and get rid of a potential opponent to LOVE's goals, and is highly displeased when Gaara vetoes her suggestions to that effect.
* SiblingsInCrime: With Gaara and Kankuro.

!!Ishida Kankuro
Gaara's older brother and one of his lieutenants and in LOVE, he serves as an information-gatherer and sometime-bodyguard for his brother. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Shadow[[note]]Darkness[[/note]].
* AllMenArePerverts: His response to Yura's explanation that the latter's syndicate hosts MudWrestling events: "You mind inviting me to one of those mud-wrestling shows sometime?" complete with a big grin.
* BadassBookworm: It takes a certain amount of smarts to be able to create his mechanical animal-scouts [[spoiler:plus a fake corpse and a bomb]]. Kankuro himself is ''brutal'' in a one-on-one fight.
* BodyguardingABadass: Both he and Temari do this with Gaara.
* BrainyBrunette: He'd have to be brainy to build the things he does as well as he does.
* DarkIsEvil: Wears a black hooded cloak.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As with Gaara and Temari above, Kenkuro cares for their uncle Yashamaru.
* EvilGenius: By his own description. Also CoDragons with Temari.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mainly toward Matsuri.
* ManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:He provided the Spiral Reaper's equipment]].
* MilitaryBrat: Same as Gaara.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Gaara's entry above.
* RobotMaster: He collects information and relays messages through mechanical animals of his own creation, most notably a mechanical cat that had an outer skin to make it identical to an actual cat, in order to make contact with Yagura. He's introduced in Chapter 32 using a robotic bird [[spoiler:to spy on Naruto's fight with Sasuke]], though he isn't identified by name until Chapter 39.
* SiblingsInCrime: With Gaara and Temari.

!!Yagura
A former member of the Kyuushingai, with the code-name "Isobu the Turtle." He is a gang leader who hails from Mist City and is the leader of the infamous Blood Mist gang. When first introduced in the main timeline, he's accepting an invitation from Gaara to join forces with LOVE, specifically as the primary distributor of Gaara's Gold Sand drug, and is later inducted into LOVE's Council of the Dawn as the holder of the seat of Frost[[note]]Ice[[/note]].
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer: He jumps on board when Gaara offers to make him the primary dealer with control over 90 percent of the profit from the sale of Gaara's "merchandise."
* AllCrimesAreEqual: He believes that sexual crimes are no different from other types of crime. The rest of the Council [[EvenEvilHasStandards proceeds to explain why that won't fly with them]].
* BreakTheHaughty: Starts happening to him from the moment [[spoiler:Hinata]], who clearly shouldn't be able to match him in a straight-up fight, manages to fend him off, even conking him with a frying pan in the process. [[HumiliationConga Following that]], he gets several pot-shots to the crotch during his fight with Yugito, he gets dunked into a pool, he has a murder attempt foiled ''and'' his balls squeezed to subdue him, several onlookers take photos and videos of said ball-squeezing...
* DisappearedDad: In his back-story, his father, who was a career criminal, was shot to death by the police.
* TheDreaded: His name is well known even to the ordinary citizens of Konoha Town. Keep in mind, this is ''without'' his Kyuushingai status being public knowledge.
--> '''Haku:''' I've heard of that guy...his crimes are ghastly.
* FantasticDrug: He's the main peddler of the Gold Sand drug-pill for Gaara.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His facial scar, here having been given to him by Naruto.
* JuryAndWitnessTampering: Among Yagura's many atrocities as leader of the Blood Mist gang, it's revealed that he caused the disappearances of several key witnesses in a case where he was charged with the gangland slaying of six men in one night.
* KnifeNut: While at the Hyuga mansion, he gleefully wields a meat-cleaver and a steak-knife, one in each hand.
* LowerClassLout: Chapter 40, his introductory chapter, explicitly states that he grew up in poverty as the son of a prostitute, and he and the Blood Mist Gang reside in a run-down building in Mist City's Seppuku Society neighborhood. It's emphasized when he meets Gaara for dinner in the same chapter, as while Gaara orders a venison steak, potato salad, pasta with mushroom sauce, and a pineapple-banana blended drink, Yagura makes a simpler order of a hamburger with extra onions, hash browns, chicken nuggets with sweet-and-sour sauce, and a cola, despite them being in a very luxurious restaurant where he could order something more expensive on Gaara's dime.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast / RedBaron: As Chapter 62 reveals, one of his nicknames is "the Butcher of the Valley of the Shadow of Death." Later chapters establish that he has a shorter nickname, "the Mist City Butcher," which is no less intimidating.
* SonOfAWhore: Yagura was raised by his mother, who provided "escort services."
* TakingTheBullet: How he got his facial scar. During the fight that kick-started the 365 days, he pushed Gaara out of the way of a meat-cleaver thrown by Naruto and took the blade in his own face instead.
* VillainousFriendship: With Gaara, including prior to the 365 days.
* WouldHitAGirl: If he's of a mind to kill you, having a vagina won't save you.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:He would have murdered Hanabi if not for Neji's intervention]].

!!Matsuri
The secretary of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, she organizes the group's meetings at Gaara's behest, and cares for the summer house where the meetings are usually held. As a member of the Council, she holds the seat of Zephyr[[note]]Wind[[/note]].
* BattleButler: She is the head maidservant in charge of the other servants at the Ishida siblings' summer house, in addition to being the Council of the Dawn's secretary. She is also a skilled assassin in her own right, having been trained by Temari.
* BerserkButton: Sexual crimes and anyone who commits them. [[spoiler:It stems from her having been raped by her step-uncle in her back-story. Because of it, she has Yagura kill Aoi for his AttemptedRape of Ino, and personally kills Sumaru for sanctioning his goons' near-assault on Hana]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's not above lending assistance to the house-servants she supervises, and they in turn see her as a kindhearted young woman. That said, if you anger her, particularly by way of her BerserkButton, you're going to get a needle in your chest.
* BrainyBrunette: Well, she ''is'' the one managing the affairs of the Council on Gaara's behalf.
* EvilCounterpart: To Hinata. They're both in charge of the servants of their respective households, they both got training from Kyuushingai (Hinata by Yugito, Matsuri by Gaara and his siblings), they're both highly intelligent and cultured (Hinata plays the piano and is an expert dancer, Matsuri oversees her servants' gardening and manages the Dawn Council's affairs, and both of them have some skill in the kitchen), they both lost family members by death (Hinata lost her mother and paternal uncle, Matsuri lost both parents), they're both polite to and respected by their peers...but while Hinata was trained to fight so that she could protect herself and her loved ones and not have to be TheLoad, Matsuri was trained to fight for the sake of vengeance [[spoiler:for her step-uncle raping her]], and whereas Hinata upholds a genuinely sweet personality and rarely lets anything aggravate her despite the traumas she's faced, Matsuri's experiences have left her with a bitterness that she hides behind a poised and professional mask.
* GreenEyedMonster: She has this toward Hinata, as Gaara forces her to admit late into the story. Specifically, she's jealous of what she perceives as Hinata not having to go through anything more serious than [[MissingMom her mother's death]] due to being rich and privileged, while Matsuri herself didn't exactly have a good adolescence [[spoiler:what with losing her parents, then being raped by her step-uncle and forced to run away from home]]. Under said duress from Gaara, Matsuri has to elaborate further that she feels this way because, from her point of view, Hinata is the most sheltered of Naruto's friends, considering that even Ino, Sakura and Tenten have had trauma and struggles of their own to deal with (respectively, [[spoiler:Ino almost being raped by Aoi, Sakura having to live with the social stigma coming from her father's involvement with the creation of the Kyuushingai, and Tenten being orphaned during the 365 days]], none of which Hinata has had to endure).
* SilkHidingSteel: A rather dark example. She's obedient to Gaara's wishes, but she's not one bit afraid of Yagura, despite his bloody reputation, and lays down the terms by which she'll accept him as the newest member of the Council: [[spoiler:he has to kill Rokusho Aoi, since the latter is guilty of AttemptedRape and Yagura was the one who appointed him as Konoha Town's Gold Sand distributor in the first place]].
* TraumaCongaLine: She suffered this in her back-story prior to meeting Gaara and his siblings. [[spoiler:[[ParentalAbandonment Losing her parents in a car crash]] because the other driver ran the red light, being [[RapeAsBackstory raped]] by her step-uncle, not being believed by her aunt and ''then'' being slapped for calling said aunt out on [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on the step-uncle]] (which contributed to the rape in the first place), being forced to run away from home due to certainty that [[VillainWithGoodPublicity the step-uncle's apparent good character]] would shield him from prosecution, being assaulted and almost raped by three hoodlums...[[FreudianExcuse she's had it rough]]]].
* YamatoNadeshiko: Very deferential and respectful, using the "-sama" honorific for Gaara and his siblings and the "-san" honorific for Yagura, but she isn't afraid to let her views be known in very uncertain terms.

!!Chojuro
A smuggler who controls the shipping industry in Water County's Wave division. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Ocean[[note]]Water[[/note]].
* AdjustingYourGlasses
* CarryABigStick: His WeaponOfChoice is a black billy-club.
* KnockoutGas: He utilizes gas pellets that emit this in the form of white smoke, for the purpose of incapacitating targets while he and his gang can then commit a robbery unmolested.
* RuthlessModernPirates: His usual schtick.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Sumaru
The newest member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn before Yagura joined the group, he is the leader of the Whirl City-based Star-Boys Gang, specializing in stolen motor vehicle parts, and also has history with Naruto. As a member of the Council, he holds the seat of Mineral[[note]]Metal[[/note]].
* BadassBiker
* BastardBoyfriend: Was this to his girlfriend Hokuto, as recounted by Naruto when reminiscing about the fateful incident at Uzushio High School in Chapter 93.
* BoisterousWeakling: Unfortunately for him, this is all he turns out to be when up against a ''seasoned'' fighter like Naruto. Even having a pistol as a weapon doesn't help him too much, though to his credit he manages to hold his own for a few minutes when he and Naruto have their rematch in the Vengeance arc.
* JerkAss: Yup.
* WouldHitAGirl: In Naruto's flashback detailing the Uzushio High incident, Hokuto begged Sumaru to just drop his rage against Naruto; his response was to slap her hard enough to knock her down. In the present day, he slaps the captive Hana after she mouths off to him.

!!Kurotsuchi
The leader of Iwa City's Blackstone Mafia. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, she holds the seat of Infero[[note]]Fire[[/note]].
* ACupAngst: Naruto attempts to invoke this by bringing up Kurotsuchi's lack of curves. For her part, though, while she's visibly affected, Kurotsuchi manages not to flip out.
* ArcVillain: Of the Spa Inferno arc.
* CounterfeitCash: One of her personal syndicate's keynote activities is the manufacturing and distribution of fake cash. According to her, the fakes are so well-made even banks have trouble telling them apart from the genuine thing.
* DirtyCop: Her personal organization has plenty of these on the payroll.
* FireBreathingWeapon: Her WeaponOfChoice is a flamethrower that she got on the black market.
* JuryAndWitnessTampering: Mabui relates a story to Mikoto and Yugao that's been circulating in the city for some time, about an honest cop who, a year prior to the main story, arrested Kurotsuchi for one of her crimes; the cop subsequently "disappeared" the week before he was slated to give evidence against her.
* KillItWithFire: At one point she sends a bunch of goons to burn down Mabui's spa [[DisproportionateRetribution because Mabui wouldn't sell the property to her]]. This is also her own ''modus operandi'' when equipped with her flamethrower. [[spoiler:She's even willing to ''set her own house on fire'' in an effort to roast Naruto inside]].
* TheMafia: The Blackstone Mafia, to be exact.
* TheQueenpin: She's this to the Blackstone Mafia, having significant control over the criminal happenings in Iwa City, plus having half the local police force in her back pocket (the other half's too scared to take direct action against her, given her ruthlessness).

!!Darui
A gang boss whose primary turf is in Kumo City, where he specializes in protection rackets. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Thunderbolt[[note]]Lightning[[/note]].
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Well, not blond, but white hair, at least.
* IGaveMyWord: Makes a promise [[spoiler:to give himself up to the police and quit his protection racket]] if Ino, Shikamaru and Choji can knock him out, and he follows through on his end of the bargain.
* LightningBruiser
* MellowFellow: For a gang leader, at least.
* PragmaticVillain: Doesn't want to fight in the stores, otherwise they'd risk closing and he'd lose money.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart

!!Menma
A marijuana dealer with drug-processing plants in Kusa and Taki Towns on the border of Earth County. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Jungle[[note]]Forest, Nature or Plant[[/note]].
* AffablyEvil: Courteous, polite, and even when he reveals his true nature to Naruto, he is very professional.
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: It's blond, it's shoulder-length, and his canon counterpart certainly wasn't bad-looking.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: He packs [[HandCannon a Smith and Wesson 460 revolver]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He's the financial sponsor for Taki Town's local Dragons basketball team, and he's loved by both the team and the locals for it.

!!Yura
A real estate developer whose criminal activities involve selling land to small-tier crime bosses, his turf is in Yu and Shimo Cities in Lightning County. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Clay[[note]]Earth[[/note]].
* BeardOfEvil: Sports a pointed chin-goatee.
* BloodSport: He runs these as part of his unique criminal empire, both the bare-knuckle and [[BeastlyBloodsports dog-fighting]] varieties.
* CombatPragmatist: During his fight with Kakashi in Chapter 131, Yura pulls off his coat and throws it on Kakashi's head, distracting the teacher long enough for the villain to get in some licks. He's also not afraid to [[GroinAttack kick below the belt]] or KickThemWhileTheyAreDown.
* CoolCar: He owns an orange Lamborghini Aventador limousine.
* CovertPervert: He gives a little smirk when mentioning his MudWrestling fights that his syndicate operates.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He refuses to deal in stolen art, preferring to acquire any art pieces that he owns the legal way, as he sees no value in holding onto artwork that wasn't acquired honestly.
* MudWrestling: His syndicate hosts these types of bouts alongside the above-mentioned BloodSport fights, but these ones are "for the dirtier minds."
* PeekABangs: His hair is combed so as to cover one eye.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Antagonists]]
This list consists of antagonists Naruto and his friends have to face in the main story who aren't members of the Kyuushingai, Akatsuki, LOVE, or students/teachers of Konoha High School; enemies under those designations are in the appropriate folders above. (Enemies introduced in the Gaiden chapters are in that specific character-folder below.)

!!Mizuki
A local crime kingpin in Konoha Town, who ruled much of the area with an iron fist by claiming he was a member of the Kyuushingai. Then Naruto, an ''actual'' Kyuushingai, showed up...
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* BadassBiker
* CopKiller: He was able to keep up the impression that he was a Kyuushingai by being this.
* StarterVillain: He's the very first antagonist Naruto faces, just like he was in the canon series.
* TokenMotivationalNemesis: Besides being the StarterVillain, Mizuki was both antagonizing Ino's family and pretending to be a Kyuushingai, two things Naruto had to swiftly deal with in order to bring peace back to Konoha Town during his first few days there. Mizuki would return in a later arc to get revenge.

!!Dosu, Zaku and Kin
Three recurring members of Mizuki's gang.
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* TerribleTrio
* TwoGuysAndAGirl
* WouldHitAGirl: Dosu and Zaku prove this when they break into Kushina's house.

!!Rokusho Aoi
A senior student and, when first introduced, the head of Konoha High's Hall Monitors Guild. After being exposed as an abusive gangster, he got stripped of his Hall Monitor position and was summarily expelled from school. He has since gone on to be a recurring thorn in Naruto's side.
* AscendedExtra: He was a filler villain in Part 1 of the canon series. Here, he's a major supporting character.
* AssholeVictim: Considering the atrocities he pulls from his first moment in the story, one doesn't feel ''too'' sorry for him when he winds up becoming a ButtMonkey [[spoiler:or even when he's beaten to death by Yagura in Chapter 136]].
* TheBully: While he was enrolled at Konoha High, and even after being expelled. He also heads a GangOfBullies comprising the members of Konoha High's Hall Monitors Guild.
* ButtMonkey: For all the vile stuff he does, he's had quite a run of rotten luck to accompany his evil track record. He's subjected to [[CurbStompBattle quite a few curb-stompings]] throughout his appearances. He's only ever been in ''one'' fight that he actually ''won'', and even then he got subject to a CurbStompBattle shortly afterward in revenge for the outcome of that fight. He had his advances on a woman publicly rejected. And then on one occasion [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a bird rested on top of his head]].
* CasanovaWannabe: He tries a lame pick-up line on a woman in Chapter 4, who not only brushes him off by saying she already has a boyfriend, but also threatens to call the police if he doesn't leave her alone. Aoi doesn't take the rejection well.
--> '''Aoi:''' I'm the chief of hall monitors at Konoha High! And what I want, I will have!
* DrunkWithPower: When he was leader of the Hall Monitors Guild.
* KnifeNut: On two occasions he's brought a knife into combat against his opponents...problem is, [[NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight those opponents were Naruto and Itachi]].
* SocialDarwinist: Aoi believes that the strong have every right to rule over the weak. When he was the chief hall monitor at Konoha High School, he would use this to justify being TheBully to weaker students. Unfortunately for him, he's forced to be on the receiving end of his own philosophy when Naruto [[CurbStompBattle utterly trounces him]] in Chapter 5 and when Shikamaru [[OneHitKO fells him with one punch]] in Chapter 27.
* StrawMisogynist: Exceptionally so.
* TeenyWeenie: During a nasty beat-down from Sai [[spoiler:while thwarting Aoi's attempt to rape Ino]], Aoi gets a painful [[GroinAttack crotch-squeeze]] which reveals he's got...shortcomings.
* WouldHitAGirl: Especially if they reject his advances or defy his say-so.
* WouldHurtAChild: His EstablishingCharacterMoment in Chapter 4 has him forcing Udon (here a first-year high school student) to publicly kiss his feet, and then using his foot to kick Udon aside, all because the kid [[DisproportionateRetribution accidentally bumped into him]].

!!The Hall Monitors Guild
A gang of senior boys from Konoha High School, primarily led by Rokusho Aoi, though they've also acted on their own initiative at different points in the story. Five of them--Yoshida Sanjiro, Bunzo, Yudachi, Urushi, and Saisu--get special focus in the fifteenth Gaiden.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Bunzo was one of the members of the original incarnation of Akatsuki under the leadership of Nagato, Yahiko and Konan; and Urushi was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Yudachi has a scar on his right cheek, and he's definitely ''not'' a good guy.
* HiredGuns: They serve this purpose in the fifteenth Gaiden. In all other appearances, they're Aoi's henchmen.
* KillItWithFire: In the fifteenth Gaiden, they try to do this to Naruto and Kushina with a plan to burn down the Uzumaki house with the two would-be victims inside while they're asleep. Unfortunately for them, Minato ''almost'' turns it around on them.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Sanjiro wasn't named in canon (he was the green-haired ninja who would later be used as the basis for Pain's first Animal Path). Bunzo was likewise unnamed in canon.
* StrawMisogynist: Following in Aoi's footsteps.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Sanjiro has green hair.

!!The Blood Mist Gang
A group of hoodlums led by the Kyuushingai member Yagura, they show up to attack Naruto and his friends in Chapters 40 and 41. Their members consist of Munashi Jinpachi, Akebino Jinin, Ringo Ameyuri, Momochi Zabuza, Kuriarare Kushimaru, Kurosuki Raiga, and Suikazan Fuguki.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played straight with Zabuza, as while he was an antagonist to Naruto and the rest of Team 7 during the Land of Waves arc, he really wasn't such a bad guy after all and in fact pulled a RedemptionEqualsDeath to cut down Gato, the arc's BigBad. Averted with Raiga, who was the main villain of his anime-only arc. The rest of the group may probably play it straight, if you note that their canon selves were already dead prior to the series' main timeline and might only have been antagonists by virtue of being shinobi attached to the Hidden Mist Village, where they're heralded as heroes and which even then is headed by a Mizukage who's not such a bad person--that and the fact that we don't really know that much about them anyway.
* AdaptationalWimp: Somewhat; while they're certainly shown to be competent fighters in this fanfic, in the canon series they were counted among the best swordsmen of the Hidden Mist Village and the world's shinobi in general. Of particular note is Zabuza, who in canon was able to fight Kakashi to a standstill, and also Raiga, who was a filler-arc main villain in the anime.
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* BadassBeard: Jinin.
* BatterUp: Among the various weapons used by the gang members during the fight with Naruto's group in Chapter 41, Fuguki wields a baseball bat.
* CoolMask: Kushimaru wears a porcelain mask over his face, much like his canon counterpart.
* FieryRedhead: Ameyuri.
* GangBangers
* HandicappedBadass: During the brawl, Raiga gets one arm broken at the shoulder by Sai, but he's still able to wrestle Sai to the ground and get in a few hits with his good arm.
* JustShootHim: [[spoiler:Ameyuri's solution when Naruto has Zabuza at knife-point is to pull out a pistol and prepare to blow him away. Ino stops her in time with a well-placed [[GroinAttack kick between the legs]]]].
* KnifeNut: The gang members are all adept at knife usage, among other gang-related weapons.
* MightyGlacier: Fuguki, who's the biggest member of the gang, manages to briefly incapacitate Naruto by barreling into him and then sitting on his back, pressing the blond boy down with his weight.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Ameyuri is the gang's only female member.
* SparedByTheAdaptation
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Kushimaru.
* WouldHitAGirl: The men in the gang don't spare Sakura, Ino or Hinata just because they're chicks. In particular, Jinpachi corners Ino and gives her a nasty beat-down, and Zabuza's response to Hinata's frantic efforts to make him release Neji from a painful arm-twisting is to use his free arm to elbow her in the face, knocking her senseless as a result.

!!Mitokado Homura
A disgraced former employee of Hyuga Corp, who was fired by Hiashi after he failed to give a proper account of funds that had been entrusted to him while Hiashi was gone on a business trip. He joins forces with Akatsuki to get revenge.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Of a sort; in the original canon, he was one of Konoha's village elders who clashed often with Tsunade on differing opinions of how to treat Naruto, and who tried to keep Naruto restrained within the bounds of the village and not let him be allowed to do anything at all, [[WellIntentionedExtremist ostensibly as a means of protecting him from Akatsuki]], though they don't seem to have it out for him directly. The author admits that he made Homura a straight villain in this story simply because he didn't like the man.
* BigFancyHouse: It's not as thoroughly described as the Hyuga or Uchiha mansions, but it's fancy enough to have an outdoor patio and balcony right outside his upstairs-level bedroom.
* DirtyOldMan: Implied, as during one scene he's dreaming about being tended to by women young enough to be his daughters.
* EvilOldFolks: ...he's not a nice person.
* AGlassOfChianti: In one chapter, he's shown to drink a glass of brandy while contemplating the reward he expects to get for helping Akatsuki.
* LastNameBasis: He's frequently referred to by his surname, even in the narrative.
* ManBehindTheMan: He hires the remnants of the Hall Monitors' Guild to take a shot at Naruto's family in the fifteenth Gaiden.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: He takes part in Akatsuki's plot [[spoiler:to kidnap Hanabi as bait to draw out Naruto]] only for the rich reward that's been promised to him if he helps them out.

!!Shiore
The leader of Konoha Town's resident Hawks gang. He plays a major role during the Konoha Gangs arc.
* AxCrazy: Not during his introductory chapter, mind you, but once he gets some guns and a chance to kill a Kyuushingai, well...
* {{BFG}}: He gleefully makes use of a rocket launcher [[spoiler:to blow up the Konoha precinct]].
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Though the author points out that Shiore is very clearly male.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* ShootEverythingThatMoves: He considers this a viable option for him and his gang.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was the ninja Orochimaru killed and impersonated during the Forest of Death.
* TriggerHappy: Him and his gang.

!!Kaguya Kimimaro, Furido Kazuma and Kakuyoku Fubuki
Three gang bosses who are involved in the Gold Sand trade through Aoi; Kimimaro is the leader of the Crossbones Crew, Kazuma leads the Flame-heart Posse, and Fubuki is the boss of the Ice-Eyes Gang. During the Konoha Gangs arc, they come and work for Aoi with the promise of getting reasonable purchasing deals on Gold Sand if they can do him a few favors...
* EvenEvilHasStandards: PlayedForLaughs with Kimimaro, who is perfectly willing to break into people's houses, commit murder, engage in illegal dog-fighting, and [[WouldHitAGirl attack women]]...but is horrified at the idea of forcing people to watch the ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' series as a method of torture.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Kazuma sports a scar over his face.
* MuggingTheMonster: Their attacks don't go well: the Flame-heart Posse attacks Chouji but gets defeated by him, Chouza, Suigetsu and Jugo, Kimimaro is forced to retreat when his gang [[OhCrap learns they have attacked the home of a Kyuushingai]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and run]], and the Ice-Eyes Gang is at the wrong end of a CurbStompBattle courtesy of Shikamaru, [[ToThePain with poor Fubuki getting 'interrogated' by the supposed victim]].
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Kazuma's canon-series counterpart was also known by the name Furido, which is used as his surname in this story.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Kimimaro gets at the wrong end of one, courtesy of a ''pissed'' Naruto.
* OnceDoneNeverForgotten: Naruto isn't willing to let Kimimaro forget about the time he made him watch ''Twilight''.
* PsychoForHire: All three, though Kimimaro is at least more low-key about it.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In terms of this trio working for Aoi, Fubuki fits.
* TheStoic: Kimimaro, in stark contrast to Kazuma and Fubuki.
** NotSoStoic: He's not happy when his gang [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere ditches him on learning they were sent to attack a Kyuushingai's home, nor when his whole gang quits for fear of pissing said Kyuushingai off]].
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Kimimaro.
* WouldHitAGirl: Kimimaro has no qualms about ''shooting'' a woman if he must. [[spoiler:Just ask Kushina]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]: Fubuki.

!!Gama Jiraiya
The permanent secretary in the Ministry of Justice, and a longtime friend of Mayor Tsunade and Lawyer Orochimaru. However, in [[AdaptationalVillainy a far cry]] from his canon counterpart, he has little to no sympathy for Naruto due to the latter's experience as a Kyuushingai.
* ArcVillain: Of the Tribunal arc, given the measures he takes to ensure Naruto is brought before the titular tribunal, up to and including "[[BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord convincing]]" Tsume to assist in doing so.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: He does not believe that the Kyuushingai should get any leniency for what happened during the 365 days, not even if their members included people as benign as Naruto. He allows that it might be a bit hypocritical to say that when the government has Yugito in its employ, but he says that even that situation is simply an opportunity for Yugito to be TheAtoner.
* DirtyOldMan: Wouldn't be Jiraiya without him being this, if Naruto's assessment of his "[[ADateWithRosiePalms palm-dates]]" is any indication.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:He wants to see the Kyuushingai prosecuted for their antics, yet he himself tried to cover up the truth behind Gaara's parents deaths--that they died from a missile strike accidentally launched by Jiraiya during a drunken tryst with a female ambassador--by claiming they were terrorism-supporters and weapons-smugglers. Incidentally, it was that move by Jiraiya and the government that actually led to the 365 days and the subsequent creation of LOVE, Akatsuki and Gold Sand (the latter two indirectly) in the first place, making Jiraiya a GreaterScopeVillain as well]].
* KnightTemplar: During the Tribunal arc, he's determined that Naruto, and the rest of the Kyuushingai by extension, must be brought to justice for the crimes they've committed. Granted, the Nine Terrors really ''did'' spark/perpetrate chaos and destruction across the country, but for most of them, they were MisBlamed for a lot of what happened, or they were just trying to survive during 365 days of hell; Jiraiya, however, doesn't see this as a valid excuse and will do anything he can to see that even the benign members like Naruto get the full brunt of the law, going as far as to [[BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord threaten to withhold funds to repair Konoha Town's wrecked police station]] if Tsume and her officers don't cooperate with his thrust to bring Naruto in.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He doesn't have a surname in canon. His surname here comes from his canonical epithet, "Gama Sage" or "Toad Sage."
* PornStash: According to Orochimaru, during his college years Jiraiya had enough porn magazines to fill a small library.

!!Kira Ay
The CEO of defense contractor Kira Enterprises, and also the brother of Kyuushingai member Kira Hachi (a.k.a. Killer Bee).
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In canon, Ay is loud and ''extremely'' aggressive (while still being mostly a good guy). Here, he's more quiet and composed, albeit not above using theatrics while giving speeches, as shown when he utilizes a helicopter to aid in his unveiling of his company's newest invention. [[spoiler:There's [[DeadPersonImpersonation an in-universe reason]] for this]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: As explained on the main page, he's an adversary to Naruto by virtue of his grudge against the Kyuushingai; by contrast, his canon counterpart, while initially hostile, wasn't such a bad guy after all. [[spoiler:His ''actual'' identity, Killer Bee, was one of Naruto's most steadfast allies in canon]].
* AngstySurvivingTwin: While he can keep it mostly under wraps, he's harboring deep-seated animosity toward the Kyuushingai because his brother Hachi died during the 365 days, leaving him as this. [[spoiler:Except it was actually ''Ay'' who died, not Hachi]].
* BadBoss: He threatens to throw his servants off the rooftop where he and Fuu are fighting, if any of them tries to interfere with his intended ''coup de grace'' against her. [[spoiler:Then again, it's not the real Ay to begin with]].
* BadassInANiceSuit: [[spoiler:Especially given his actual identity]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: Went looking for Hachi during the 365 days [[spoiler:and masqueraded as him to save his life, at the cost of his own]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: He shares dinner with Yugito, talks calmly with her and Naruto on other occasions, and is charming and polite to the Uchiha and Hyuga families during their scheduled corporation battle and to the Kyuushingai when they later appear at his island mansion in the final arc...but all of that is a mask to cover up his less-than-altruistic plans and vindictive nature.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Responsible to Hachi's Foolish.
* LargeAndInCharge: As in canon, he's a big guy. He's also the CEO of his own company.
* LightningBruiser: When made to fight.
* MadeOfIron: During his fight with Fuu at his island mansion, despite her fiercest blows, he's barely fazed.
* MrFanservice: One chapter opens with him waking up and doing his morning workout in his penthouse suite while shirtless.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, the Raikage doesn't have a listed surname or even a proper name.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: As explained in Killer Bee's entry above.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: On the surface, Kira's a billionaire CEO and a government-sanctioned defense contractor who thinks nothing of spending money to outfit the local security forces with new ballistic armor, and will [[PhotoOpWithTheDog permit photographs of such benevolent activities]] for the media's benefit; additionally, he makes no effort to hide that his company had a stake in the creation of the Kyuushingai, painting himself as a man who will at least take responsibility for the devastation that took place because of them. Away from the public eye, however, he makes it very plain in separate conversations with Naruto and Yugito that he hates the Kyuushingai (including the two of them, despite their being on the good guys' side), and that he bears a grudge against them due to what happened to his brother and is therefore decidedly not on their side. [[spoiler:There's also the fact that he's the man behind both Utakata and Akatsuki, plus his publicly outing Naruto and Yugito as Kyuushingai would have put Hyuga Corp and the Uchiha Zaibatsu in a bad light as well were it not for Hinata [[ShamingTheMob chewing out the crowd]]]].

!!The Spiral Reaper
The eponymous antagonist of the Spiral Reaper arc, who goes on a killing spree seemingly directed at faculty or students of Konoha High who have failed to live up to certain standards...
* CompositeCharacter: This individual has a mask like Tobi's first mask (only colored white instead of orange) and carries Hidan's scythe (with silver blades instead of red). [[spoiler:His true identity is that of Yamato Tenzou]].
* DarkIsEvil: Except for the WhiteMaskOfDoom, the Reaper wears black clothing.
* PragmaticVillainy: Surprises and knocks out Hotaru at one point and briefly considers killing her, but then decides against it because she's just doing her job as a cop (whereas the Reaper's other victims are considered by the killer to be legitimately guilty of sin and therefore deserving of death), plus killing a cop will attract too much heat.
* SerialKiller: Well, a wannabe, according to Tsume. It's actually discussed by Naruto and the Ino-Shika-Cho trio whether the Spiral Reaper actually qualifies to be called this, since according to the definition of the trope, the killer doesn't have even the minimum body count and the time period is much too short.
* SilentAntagonist: Except for the character's introductory chapter when first getting equipment [[spoiler:courtesy of Kankuro]], the Reaper never utters a single word out loud.
* SinisterScythe: With three silver blades.
* SlasherSmile: The few times the Reaper's been shown unmasked, the individual has shown the occasional creepy grin.
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Throwing Your Scythe Always Works]]: This is an option if the target is a bit of a distance away. [[spoiler:Emiru found this out the hard way]].
* WhiteMaskOfDoom
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Yuyami]]
Yuyami (Japanese for "dusk") is a black-ops team overseen by the second Minister of Justice, Yamashiro Aoba, and led by Naruto's father, Namikaze Minato. The group was formed in the wake of the 365 days to investigate, in full, who stood to gain from the training of the nine individuals who would eventually become the Kyuushingai, and what the government's true intentions were for the Kyuushingai. The group is not identified by name in the main story, but is eventually identified in the twenty-eighth Gaiden.

The other members of Yuyami include Uchiha Itachi, Nii Yugito, and former military man Jei. (Itachi's character entry is under the Uchiha Zaibatsu folder, while Yugito's is under the Kyuushingai folder.) [[spoiler:By the end of the story, Konan and Kyusuke of the Akatsuki group, Darui of the LOVE group, and Zabuza of the Blood Mist Gang are also members of this group; their entries are in other folders on this page]].

!!Jei
A former serviceman who resides in Mist City and is a sort-of mentor to minor character Omoi. He first appears in the twenty-second Gaiden.
* BigBrotherMentor: Tries to be this to Omoi, at least.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's the Cloud shinobi J, who's not otherwise identified by a proper name. His name here comes from the phonetic pronunciation of his canon name.
* ProperlyParanoid: The man sleeps with a Glock pistol under his pillow. In fairness, he lives in [[WretchedHive Mist City]].
* ScaryBlackMan: His [[TheDreaded reputation]] is such that his mere presence is enough to frighten off a bunch of thugs who're fighting Omoi, Mikoshi and Ajisai.
* SecretSecretKeeper: He knows that Ajisai's grandfather Roshi was one of the Kyuushingai, but has yet to tell her all the details of what the old man did (she only knows her grandfather provided unspecified military service for his country).
* SemperFi
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Political Figures]]
A list of the politicians and other politically-aligned figures in the ''Kitsune no Ken'' universe. They are members of one of the two prevailing political parties, [[FictionalPoliticalParty the United Liberty Party (ULP) and the Advanced People's Party (APP)]]; at the time the story is set, the ULP is the ruling party and the APP is the opposition party, until the twenty-third Gaiden when their roles have been reversed following the APP's victory at the polls.

Jiraiya, who is the Justice Ministry's permanent secretary, has his own entry in the "Other Antagonists" folder, and other political figures who appear in the story have their own entries elsewhere on this page.

!!Kazahana Sousetsu
The leader of the ULP, and the country's Prime Minister at the time the story takes place.
* DeathGlare: When Tourism Minister Akahoshi dares to mouth off to Sousetsu during a meeting in the twenty-eighth Gaiden, Sousetsu gives him a glare that, to quote the narrative, "would've melted iron."
* GreaterScopeParagon: He takes over this role from Aoba as of the twenty-eighth Gaiden.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:He knows nothing about the circumstances surrounding the DeceasedFallGuyGambit or of Aoba's plans to sniff out the truth. He is ''not'' pleased about either situation when he eventually finds out in the twenty-eighth Gaiden]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the canon series' first movie, he was killed in the back-story.

!!Omono Dokku
The leader of the APP, and the country's Prime Minister during the fourteenth Gaiden, having defeated Sousetsu in the polls sometime prior to the events of that chapter.
* AintTooProudToBeg: [[spoiler:He was willing to go on his hands and knees and beg Gaara's forgiveness for the disgrace brought upon Gaara's family due to the DeceasedFallGuyGambit. Gaara has to tell him to get up, as it's not becoming of a leader]].
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Dokku didn't have a surname in the canon series.

!!Yamashiro Aoba
The Minister of Justice, personally handpicked by Prime Minister Kazahana to replace his predecessor, the late Ishikawa.
* GreaterScopeParagon: He's Minato's direct supervisor in the latter's search to uncover the truth behind the Kyuushingai training program and the Nine Terrors' rampage.
* UnexpectedSuccessor: Prior to his appointment, Aoba was a Minister without Portfolio in the Prime Minister's office; the only reason he got his new post was because Jiraiya, the Justice Ministry's Permanent Secretary, refused to take on the role himself out of respect to the recently-deceased Ishikawa. [[spoiler:Although Aoba himself quickly learns that Jiraiya's actual reason was to provide PlausibleDeniability in case anyone found out about Ishikawa's role in the DeceasedFallGuyGambit]].

!!Minister Byakuren
The Minister of National Security.
* BadassBaritone: He's described as having a voice like this, despite his advanced age.
* CoolOldGuy: When Naruto declares that Jiraiya's a pervert, Byakuren's response is to laugh about it and then bring up a NoodleIncident that Jiraiya was involved in.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: While he does briefly chastise Naruto for the work the security forces had to undergo thanks to the 365 days, Byakuren acknowledges that nobody is immune to making mistakes, and that Naruto is being TheAtoner.

!!Sarutobi Hiruzen
A relatively minor character in this fic, he serves in the Ministry of Defense and has had at least one encounter with Naruto in the past.
* CoolOldGuy
* DemotedToExtra: Recall that in canon, he was a major supporting character prior to his death in the Invasion of Konoha arc.
* DirtyOldMan: Tsunade flattens him for it.
* NiceGuy: His being this actually saved him in the back-story--prior to the start of the 365 days, he came across Naruto looking despondent and offered to be a listening ear to the boy's troubles. Naruto's response was to advise him to take his family and flee the city, which only a short while later would end up bearing the brunt of the 365 days' initial devastation.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: His intervention is the only reason Naruto didn't get immediately arrested following the first encounter with Aoi's gang.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Unlike his canon counterpart, he survives right to the end of the story.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Nohara Rin
A news reporter for Channel 3 News. She's first introduced in Chapter 62, where she's providing coverage of Kira Ay's unveiling of his company's newest product, and also gets her own character arc thereafter, between Chapters 63 and 67.
* AgeLift: In canon, Rin was a young teenager at the time of her death. Here, she's a full-grown adult and at least the same age as Kakashi.
* DamselInDistress: During the Haunted Past Arc, where she has to contend with an abusive ex-boyfriend who's been stalking her.
* ScarsAreForever: [[spoiler:She's got several facial scars from her [[DomesticAbuse abusive relationship]] with Hidan. She tries to hide them with makeup, but Naruto's still able to notice and point them out]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, she's been dead for years prior to the start of the story's main timeline.

!!Judge Utatane Koharu
A magistrate who's introduced in the Tribunal Arc as the judge Jiraiya summons to preside over Naruto's hearing.
* LongerThanLifeSentence: She's perfectly capable of dishing these out if you get on her bad side. She gives two characters who are mostly respectful of her position up to 30 years' imprisonment with a chance for parole in 15, but another character who openly insults her gets slapped with all his sentences running consecutively, resulting in up to ''365 years'' in prison with NO chance for parole.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Especially when she's got the power to sentence you to ''365 years in prison''.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She'll sentence you according to the severity of your crime, but she will consider your circumstances and whether you had previous criminal convictions, and if your prior record was clean, she'll have your sentencing terms run concurrent with each other; meaning, if you get sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment on two separate charges, she'll put the sentencing times together so you only end up serving 10 years instead of 20.
* WhatTheHellHero: Her ruling about [[spoiler: whether Naruto will possibly have to be subjected to a full trial for his actions in the 365 days]] is this regarding the ''stupid'' decisions Naruto took as a Kyuushingai.

!!Lawyer Kato Dan
A defense attorney who appears in the Tribunal Arc, with a number of cases before Judge Utatane. He's later appointed to represent Naruto at the titular tribunal.
* AmoralAttorney: Averted; despite appearing on behalf of a few not-nice characters in Chapter 99, he hasn't been shown to be a bad guy himself.
* GoodLawyersGoodClients: An interesting variation. He's a good guy, and Naruto (his client) is clearly a good guy...but Naruto really ''is'' guilty of having committed his atrocities during the 365 days. Of course, the point of the tribunal is not to determine Naruto's innocence or guilt, but whether he's guilty enough to warrant going before an official trial by jury.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was Tsunade's fiance who died on her watch.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Pale blue, to be exact.

!!Lawyer Uzuki Yugao
A prosecutor who appears in the Tribunal Arc, appointed to argue the point that Naruto should be made to stand trial before an official court setting for his actions as a Kyuushingai. She makes a later appearance where it's revealed she's old schoolmates with Uchiha Mikoto and the spa owner Mabui.
* AmoralAttorney: Another aversion, as she genuinely desires justice, asks the kind of questions that a prosecutor would be expected to ask, and submits to the court's sustaining of Dan's objection to her referencing the Uzushio High incident (which isn't part of Naruto's current charges regarding the 365 days). [[spoiler:She also [[GracefulLoser takes it with good grace]] when Naruto is absolved of having to undergo an official trial]].
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Shares this view with Jiraiya, where the Kyuushingai are concerned. However, she herself has no grudge against Naruto personally.
* CrusadingLawyer: As a prosecutor, she honestly desires justice for what happened during the 365 days. At the same time, she doesn't act like a douche toward Naruto, even when she's grilling him on the stand (which, even then, is just her doing her job).
* HelloAttorney
* NotSoAboveItAll: She's by-the-book, professional, direct, and polite to the point of coolness...yet she has to [[ActuallyPrettyFunny stifle her laughter]] when Naruto very nearly calls Jiraiya a pervert during his courtroom testimony. And as Chapter 153 reveals, she enjoys a good spa treatment as much as the next client.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Prior to the start of the tribunal, she inquires after Naruto's health and recommends that he should eat some breakfast before they begin. She also points out that it'll give Naruto an opportunity to fine-tune his defense with Dan.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: For reading purposes, at least.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Sabaku Yashamaru
The uncle of Gaara, Temari and Kankuro, introduced in Chapter 132, though he was previously mentioned during the meeting of the Council of the Dawn. He's the CEO of Suna City's Sabaku Limited, and has some political ties.
* AccompliceByInaction: [[spoiler:He did nothing to prevent Gaara's actions which would lead to the 365 days, due to his anger at the government for wrongly scapegoating his sister and brother-in-law as terrorists to cover up its own military mistake of firing a rocket on its own convoy]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Even toward Gaara, his Kyuushingai nephew, such as when Gaara injures himself after having punched through an oak-wood door.
--> '''Gaara:''' This hurts...really, really, really hurts.
--> '''Yashamaru:''' Well, that's what happens when you punch right through a wooden door.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, Sabaku isn't a surname that's ascribed to anyone in Gaara's family (it comes from Gaara's canonical epithet, "Sabaku no Gaara," or "Gaara of the Sand Waterfall").
* NervesOfSteel: He takes being held at gunpoint and placed on top of a bomb's trigger surprisingly calmly, not even flinching or pausing in his eating when the former happens.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Chapter 136 describes him as being an older man, but sporting a fairly youthful appearance.
* ParentalSubstitute: He raised Gaara and his siblings after their parents' deaths.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He doesn't have a major role within the story overall, at least in the present day...but we ''do'' find out that he was critical to Gaara turning out the way he did. [[spoiler:He was the one who informed Gaara of the circumstances behind Gaara's parents' deaths and scapegoat status as given to them by the government to cover up its own embarrassing military mistake, and he deliberately refrained from reining Gaara in just prior to and during the 365 days due to his own bitterness at those circumstances]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: He's dead in Gaara's backstory in the canon universe.

!!Mabui
A spa owner and an old schoolmate of Uchiha Mikoto and Uzuki Yugao, introduced in Chapter 153.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Dark-skinned silver-haired lady, actually.
* GentleGiant: She's certainly taller than both Mikoto and Yugao, but with a slender build. Her nickname from high school days is "Slender Giant." Plus she has a very deferential personality in relating to her clients during massage sessions, and she speaks in a soft and gentle tone, all the better to put them at ease.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Back when she, Mikoto and Yugao went to school together, if Yugao's old nickname for her, "Slender Giant," is any indication.
* KimonoFanservice
* PressurePoint: She knows how to apply pressure to nerve endings during massages so as to provide pleasure to her clients, as she demonstrates on Yugao for the latter's first massage at her spa. Justified, as Mikoto notes that Mabui studied for a degree in human physiology, which included courses on anatomy, and Mabui herself admits that she spent a lot of time researching the body's nerve clusters in particular.

!!Chi
The leader of Sound City's Tiger Dragon gang, introduced during the Spiral Reaper arc.
* AffablyEvil: He's certainly the most cordial gang leader we've seen to date.
* BadassBiker
* HiddenDepths: Before becoming a gang leader, his dream was to become a food critic. And he's got SupremeChef skills to back up that goal.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: When Naruto stops ''just'' short of punching him in the throat and orders him to leave, Chi knows not to push his luck.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: No, he's not an original character; he's actually C, one of the Raikage's bodyguards in canon. The author simply combined his name with the phonetic Japanese pronunciation of his name, "shi."
* RealMenWearPink: Turns out he's a SupremeChef, and will help out in the kitchen whenever he can.

!!Yukata
Chi's NumberTwo in the Tiger Dragon gang, and a former student of Konoha High School who left the institution on bad terms.
* CallBack: She's the subject of this. Way back in Chapter 4, Ino mentions that the Hall Monitors' Guild framed a girl for stealing a cell-phone because [[DisproportionateRetribution the girl in question had refused a date with one of their members]]. Guess who that girl turned out to be.
* ClearMyName: When she's initially suspected for murder at the start of the Spiral Reaper arc, she makes a point of letting the Konoha Town detectives know she couldn't have done it. This trope then becomes the mission of the extended Tiger Dragon gang for the arc.
* DaddysGirl: She was apparently closer to her father than to her mother.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's got quite a few barbed insults to direct at her leader, Chi, and to anyone else who she's annoyed with.
--> '''Yurika:''' How'd you end up here in the first place? The doctor said you were stabbed.
--> '''Yukata:''' I cut myself while shaving my legs.
* {{Delinquents}}
* DisappearedDad: He died when she was much younger.
* {{Irony}}: She declares that she hates Konoha High School and doesn't see herself going back there, after what happened with her and the Hall Monitors' Guild. [[spoiler:Guess where she ends up working as a teacher in the DistantFinale]].
* ParentalIssues: She's got no love for her mother Yui, who she blames for not standing up for her when she was wrongly accused of theft by the Hall Monitors' Guild. It doesn't help that Yui refuses to own up to her mistake.

!!Chief Kaiza
The police chief of Whirl City's precinct, introduced during the Vengeance arc.
* InspectorJavert: Has no trust toward the Kyuushingai due to the 365 days having badly affected Whirl City, and especially toward Naruto due to the latter's actions having caused damage to Uzushio High School's grounds post-365 days. In fact, he goes as far as to tell Tsume that, if Naruto causes even the slightest bit of trouble while in Whirl City, he'll "send him home in a cedar box."
* IrrationalHatred: Of the misplaced variety, toward the Kyuushingai. Riots broke out in Whirl City due to the Nine Terrors' actions, and his wife was murdered during that period; the people responsible for the murder were caught not long afterward, but Kaiza still blames the Kyuushingai years later, even though they had nothing to do with that, and it's also why he's especially prejudiced against Naruto (the blond boy being a KarmaHoudini in Kaiza's eyes following the events at Uzushio High School probably did not help).
* LastNameBasis: Kaiza is the character's surname in this universe (whereas in canon it's his given name).
* TheLostLenore: His wife was murdered near the end of the 365 days, when he and his police officers were fighting to keep a semblance of order in the midst of Whirl City's riots caused by the Kyuushingai panic. Although the perpetrators were caught not long afterward, Kaiza blames the Kyuushingai for his wife's death regardless.
* OverprotectiveDad: According to Hokuto.
* PapaWolf: Even after Hokuto told him to his face that she hated him hours before, the moment he learns she's in danger, he rushes off to rescue her.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: He's Hokuto's father in this universe; in the original series, the two have nothing to do with each other (plus Hokuto is a filler character who's not in the manga).
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was murdered by Gato during the backstory for the Land of Waves arc.

!!Kaiza Hokuto
Chief Kaiza's daughter and a former classmate of Naruto's from Uzushio High School in Whirl City.
* DamselInDistress: Alongside Hana, during the Vengeance Arc, when both of them are kidnapped by Sumaru's Star-Boys gang to lure Naruto into a trap.
* EarlyBirdCameo: She first showed up in a flashback in Chapter 93. Her first proper appearance in the current timeline was in Chapter 167.
* MissingMom: See Kaiza's TheLostLenore entry above. Hokuto herself feels that her mother's death led to her father's InspectorJavert attitude.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Kaiza's LastNameBasis trope above.
* RebelliousPrincess: Rebellious police chief's daughter, if you want to get technical.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: See Chief Kaiza's entry above.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gaiden Characters]]
Characters introduced in the story's Gaiden chapters.

!!Roshi Ajisai
The granddaughter of Roshi, a.k.a. Son Goku the Gorilla of the Kyuushingai.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Dislikes sweet stuff.
* FieryRedhead
* TheLadette
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She has no surname to speak of in the canon series.
* NewTransferStudent: At the time we meet her, she's just beginning her first day of the new school year at Mist City High, after having been (unwillingly) transferred from Iwa City High due to moving to Mist City for her mother's job.
* NotAMorningPerson
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She's Roshi's granddaughter in this universe; they have no connection to each other in the canon series.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: French fries.

!!Kimura Mikoshi
One of Ajisai's new classmates at Mist City High, with a chivalrous attitude toward women. He's also Maki's older twin brother.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's usually pretty polite, even to people who're rude to him...but the gloves come off if you endanger his sister.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He'll do whatever he needs to do to rescue Maki if she's in danger.
* GlassesPull: He takes them off when preparing to uphold his insistence that Omoi call of his intended fight with Ajisai. And as Omoi discovers, Mikoshi can ''[[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass physically]]'' back up that insistence if pressed.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He doesn't have a surname to speak of in the canon series.
* OneManArmy: He maims and batters ''eleven'' guys in one moment's onslaught, with no intention of stopping, after one of them cracks a joke about Maki becoming "sloppy seconds." [[spoiler:It takes a CooldownHug from Ajisai to stop him]].
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In canon, the only connection between him and Maki is that they're both from the Hidden Sand Village.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: When he's especially pissed off, as the thirty-first Gaiden reveals.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: Well, his ambition ''is'' to become a teacher, after all.
* UnstoppableRage: Taunting him that Maki's become "sloppy seconds" was ''not'' the smartest thing to do, as the thug responsible for it found out moments later.
* WouldNotHitAGirl: And he won't allow anyone else to hit girls either, if he can prevent it. [[spoiler:Likely because of his family's history of DomesticAbuse]].

!!Yamazaki Omoi
A classmate of Ajisai and Mikoshi with a reputation for being a ruthless fighter from the wrong side of town.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Downplayed. In the canon series, while a shinobi of the Hidden Cloud, Omoi was definitely on the good guys' side. Here, he's a delinquent who doesn't appear to care about the feelings of others, but he's not completely unreasonable.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: White hair, to be exact.
* {{Delinquent}}
* TheDreaded: His classmates and even his home-room teacher are afraid of him because of his reputation; just the mention of his name is enough to make others nervous.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: On seeing that [[spoiler:[[BadassBookworm Mikoshi]]]] is fast enough to dodge one of his punches and ''take a button from his shirt'' in the process, Omoi decides not to press his luck further.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He has no revealed surname in canon.
* WouldHitAGirl: He's not one to back down from a fight, even if the challenger is a woman.

!!Kimura Maki
Mikoshi's younger twin sister and another Mist City High student.
* GenkiGirl: According to Mikoshi, and she certainly acts the part.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She doesn't have a surname to speak of in canon.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In canon, the only connection between her and Mikoshi is that they're both from the Hidden Sand Village.
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:While revealing her and Mikoshi's DomesticAbuse history to Ajisai]].

!!Kaneko Zeshin
A prosecutor based out of Ame Town, and an old acquaintance of Uzuki Yugao's.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: As shown in the fourth Gaiden.
* GentlemanSnarker
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He was the first Raikage in canon, and he wasn't identified by a proper name.

!!Kinjo Naizen
The creator of the ''Shadow Fox'' comic series.
* CreatorCameo: In-universe example, as in the eighth Gaiden he's set to make an appearance in an episode of the ''Shadow Fox'' TV series.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was the unnamed daimyo of the Land of Lightning.

!!Sakata Emi
An actress who stars as Shadow Fox in the TV series adaptation of the comic.
* ActionGirl: She plays one, at least.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, Emi was a very minor character whose surname was not revealed.

!!Morishita Atsui
An actor who stars as Ghost Wolf in the ''Shadow Fox'' TV series.
* AscendedFanboy: At the time the eighth Gaiden is set, before he landed the role of Ghost Wolf, Atsui was a film student who did independent films that expounded on the whys and wherefores of his favorite comic book character...who just so happened to be Ghost Wolf.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: An in-universe example. Ghost Wolf is a nasty gang leader and super-criminal from the ''Shadow Fox'' series; Atsui is a chummy fellow who gets along quite fine with Emi, Shadow Fox's actress.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Atsui didn't have a revealed surname in canon.

!!Uboshita Yumi and Takishi
A married couple who move in the house across from Naruto's sometime after the Parliament incident. Yumi is the new Spanish teacher at Konoha High School, and Takishi is a data analyst working for the Uchiha Zaibatsu.
* TheAce: Yumi provides a mild deconstruction in the thirty-fifth Gaiden, as the other teachers tell her point-blank that her outshining them in their respective specialty areas isn't exactly endearing her to them. Kakashi advises her that, while she shouldn't lower her own level of excellence, she should try to be sensitive to the feelings of others so as to avoid offending them even by accident.
* AscendedExtra: Both of them, big time. Yumi was one of the two girls created by Konohamaru as part of his Sexy Jutsu: Girl on Girl technique (specifically, the black-haired girl in the anime), and Takishi was one of Orochimaru's random prisoners.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Yumi isn't a good drinker, as the thirty-fifth Gaiden reveals.
* CoolTeacher: Yumi takes Naruto's history as a Kyuushingai in stride, for starters. Kakashi later complains about Yumi being cooler than ''him''.
* DoomItYourself: Apparently, Takishi has had a few ''episodes'' of attempts at being a handyman. Yumi is all too eager to share some of those stories with Kushina (who, in turn, is willing to share embarrassing stories about Naruto).
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: When Yumi introduces herself to her Spanish class for the first time and announces that she's HappilyMarried ''and'' perfectly straight, a few of the girl students mutter in disappointment.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: As stated above, Yumi's original-series counterpart didn't even have a name, not being an actual person to begin with; in Takishi's case, at least that ''is'' his given name. Both of them get the surname Uboshita for this story's universe.
* SternTeacher: Yumi takes her role as a Spanish teacher ''very'' seriously. In fact, according to Takishi, during her previous appointment at Shimo City High School, Yumi earned the nickname "Student Slayer" for how hard she graded her students' work.
* SupremeChef: It turns out Yumi has cooking skill that rivals Kushina's, much to the latter's dismay.
--> '''Naruto:''' Um...well...how do I put this...could we hire Yumi-sensei to cook for us?
--> '''Kushina:''' TRAITOR!
* TeachersOutOfSchool: Well, since they live across the street from each other, Naruto at least knows that Yumi has a life outside of Spanish class. Suigetsu tries to take advantage of this so they can get better grades, once he finds out Yumi and Naruto are neighbors.
--> '''Suigetsu:''' C'mon, dude, she's your next-door neighbor! Can't you, I don't know, sweet-talk her or something? Use some of that Kyuushingai charm or whatever you've got! Our grades are on the line here!
--> '''Naruto:''' Uh, dude, my skills don't work that way...
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Takishi loves tofu, while Yumi is fond of pasta. Happily enough, the day after they move into their new house, Kushina shows up with a house-warming gift of [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a tofu-and-pasta casserole]].

!!Hoseki Guren
A high school Physics teacher from Kumo City, and Sagi's eventual lover.
* KindheartedCatLover
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She didn't have a revealed surname in canon. The author gave her the surname Hoseki ([[MeaningfulName which is Japanese for "gem"]], in reference to her canon self's Crystal Release technique).

!!Owashi Sagi
A sophomore Computer Science college student attending school in Kumo City, and Guren's eventual lover.
* AscendedExtra: In canon, he was important to his sister Toki's back-story, but that's about it.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: According to Guren's silent observation, while Sagi's body in general is average-looking, he's got a pretty impressive ''girth'' that will make any girl who's lucky to have him very happy.
* TheGruntingOrgasm: Has one as a result of having sex with Guren.
* MissingMom: His mother died before he was old enough to really remember her.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: His surname, Owashi, was his father's given name in the original anime; their actual family name was not revealed there.
* NerdsAreVirgins: An aversion, as while he's pursuing a Computer Science degree, at the time he's introduced in the eleventh Gaiden he'd already lost his virginity during his final year of high school.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's dead long before the arc where his family is featured.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Tsuchinoe
A female ex-cop turned criminal who has an alliance with the Purple Storm gang, and acts briefly as their leader in Arashi's place.
* DarkActionGirl: She's not afraid to go head-to-head with Naruto, a Kyuushingai, if she must.
* FairCop: Used to be this.
* FallenHero: Tsume considers Tsuchinoe to be this.
* KnifeNut: Her chosen weapon in the twenty-fourth Gaiden is a Bowie knife.
* [[LawmanGoneBad Law-woman Gone Bad]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Tanzaku Susuki
The marketing manager of the Bounti-Juice fruit juice company from Yu City.
* AbsurdlyHighStakesGame: She presents a challenge to Naruto that's basically a variation of RussianRoulette, only instead of a revolver with bullets, they're using six bottles of fruit juice on a turn-table, with one of the bottles containing a powerful drug. [[spoiler:Don't worry, it's only sleeping powder]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: She was a minor neutral character in canon.
* AscendedExtra: Of a sort. In canon, she was one of two hostesses who entertained Jiraiya; in this story's universe, she was one of the gamblers present at Yura's evening get-together during the Underground Fists arc, but wasn't directly identified by name at that time.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Downplayed; while she's not shown to use unethical practices in her job, she ''does'' use resources from her job (samples of Bounti-Juice's newest drink flavors) as tools in her plot to get revenge on Naruto.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: During her encounter with Naruto in the seventeenth Gaiden, Susuki briefly attempts to tease him [[FootsieUnderTheTable using her foot under the table]], but when Naruto coolly informs her that he's seeing somebody (Hinata), Susuki is graceful enough to pull her foot back and apologize for it.
* TheGamblingAddict
* IdleRich: Considering that she was part of a crowd willing to gamble millions on Yura's games...
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Her surname comes from the Tanzaku Quarters, the gambling house where she worked in canon.
* SlippingAMickey: She drugs a bottle of juice and gives it to Kushina to incapacitate redhead, prior to her encounter with Naruto. [[spoiler:Fortunately, the drug in question is only sleeping powder]].
* SoreLoser: Naruto accuses her of being this. Susuki doesn't exactly dispute it.

!!Komatsu Banna and Amayo
Karui's father and mother. Banna is employed as a security officer assigned to the Tourism Minister, and Amayo is a secretary.
* AbusiveParents: Amayo is seriously emotionally abusive toward Karui, as evidenced by their interaction in the eighteenth Gaiden, even if the abuse appears downplayed.
* ControlFreak: Karui accuses Amayo of being this (not to her face, though).
--> '''Karui:''' I guess I should just be glad she lets me out of the house at all.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Banna's the one Karui got it from.
* DisappearedDad: Banna has been this to Karui for the past five years, having walked out on his wife and daughter. Both he and Karui concede that it was because Banna could no longer handle Amayo's overbearing personality, though Banna regrets having left Karui behind to deal with the fallout of her mother's attitude.
* EducationMama: Amayo expects Karui to excel in her music studies.
* TheGhost: Amayo was this during the main story, as while she was mentioned several times, she never made a personal appearance until the eighteenth Gaiden.
* MeddlingParents: Applicable to Amayo. When Banna comments on the presence of a Kyuushingai (Naruto) in Konoha Town, Karui dryly says it wouldn't surprise her if Amayo moved to remove her from Konoha High School, given that Naruto also attends there.
* MyBelovedSmother: Karui has this problem with Amayo. Witness this brief exchange when Karui tries to mediate the confrontation between her parents...
--> '''Karui:''' Mom...
--> '''Amayo:''' Shush, dear. The grown-ups are talking.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Neither Banna nor Amayo have any connection to Karui (or even to each other) in canon.
* StageMom: As Karui reveals during a confidential talk with Kakashi in the main story, she strongly feels that the reason Amayo has [[EducationMama pushed her to excel at the violin]] is because Amayo herself failed in her endeavors to build a musical career, so now she's pushing her thwarted expectations onto her daughter.

!!Hideaki Sumire
A real estate agent and married mother of two, who comes for an appointment at Mabui's spa in the twenty-first Gaiden. She's revealed to be Hoseki Guren's older sister in the twenty-fifth Gaiden.
* BigSisterInstinct: When they were children, Sumire always beat up other kids who picked on Guren. Also, when Guren's JerkAss ex-husband Genkei blames their failed marriage and his own infidelity on Guren's supposed fertility troubles, Sumire's ready to physically tear him a new one right there and then.
--> '''Sumire:''' Hey, when kids pick on one's kid sibling, it's the bigger sibling's responsibility to protect said kid sibling.
* HappilyMarried: For sixteen years, as the twenty-fifth Gaiden reveals.
* TheModestOrgasm: Experiences a ''very'' quiet one during Okyo's ministrations on her feet in her massage session. She tips Okyo quite generously for it, and it helps her get in the mood for her husband later.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Sumire didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In the canon series, Sumire and Guren had no connection to each other.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Okyo
The newest employee at Mabui's spa, she's Sumire's massage therapist in the twenty-first Gaiden.
* PressurePoint: As with other massage therapists at the spa, she's been trained by Mabui as to how to manipulate these while massaging clients, to maximize their enjoyment of the session. She inadvertently gets Sumire to experience a quiet orgasm while rubbing her feet due to manipulation of a particular point in her soles.

!!Oshiro Genkei
Guren's ex-husband, who appears in the twenty-fifth Gaiden as a patron at the cafe where Guren, Sumire and Sagi just happen to be having their own get-together.
* JerkAss: He blames Guren, to her face, in front of her boyfriend and her sister, in a public place, for supposedly having infertility problems that led to them being unable to have children and that, according to him, resulted in him cheating on her with her best friend just to be able to have a child to pass on his name.
* MustHaveCaffeine: The whole reason he's at the cafe in the twenty-fifth Gaiden is to grab a cappuccino before a business meeting with some clients.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was the unnamed Third Kazekage.
* NeverMyFault: While he readily cops to his [[YourCheatingHeart cheating ways]] being the direct cause of his and Guren's marriage ending, he asserts that that only happened because, for the six years they'd been together, they had tried and failed to have children--and he blames ''Guren'' for it, saying her "plumbing" doesn't work. Sagi calls him out on it, [[ArmorPiercingQuestion asking if Genkei ever did his own medical checkup to eliminate]] ''[[ArmorPiercingQuestion himself]]'' [[ArmorPiercingQuestion as the real problem]].

!!Tsubaki
Hokuto's homeroom teacher at Uzushio High School in Whirl City, she's introduced in the thirty-second Gaiden.
* BathingBeauty: When we first see her, she's coming out from her afternoon bath to answer the telephone. As soon as she's done, she prepares to go right back into the bath.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: She is firmly of the mindset that Naruto being a Kyuushingai makes him a bad influence for Hokuto, mainly because Whirl City was one of the worst-affected cities during the 365 days. Even before he revealed himself to be a Kyuushingai over the radio, Tsubaki was already of a negative opinion about him due to the incident where he fought the Star-Boys Gang on Uzushio High's grounds and caused significant property damage there, only for him to (in her eyes and the eyes of the rest of Whirl City) become a KarmaHoudini for it.

!!Oishi Taiseki
Kaiza's former batch-match during their days at the police academy, now a cop working for the Yu City Police Department, he's introduced in the thirty-second Gaiden.
* ByTheBookCop: He's close friends with Kaiza because of this. He's also not a fan of the Kyuushingai because of this.
* LanternJawOfJustice: He's a cop who believes quite strongly in justice, and the narrative describes him as having "a jawline that looked like it'd been chiseled off a rock."
* NamedByTheAdaptation: According to the canon ''Naruto'' wiki page, his given name, Taiseki, is an irregular pronunciation of the Japanese term for "big stone," which is usually pronounced as "oishi." The author therefore decided to give him Oishi as a surname.

!!Kagura Sana
Konoha High School's head cheerleader and captain of the gymnastics club, introduced during the thirty-third Gaiden.
* AdaptationalVillainy: While her canon counterpart was certainly arrogant and sadistic, and while she and her teammates opposed Konoha, that was largely in the context of their participating in the villages' joint Chuunin exams. Here, she's downright malicious and petty.
* AlphaBitch: While her introduction paints her as a very popular person, it soon becomes apparent from her interactions with Ruka that she's actually this.
* BoobsOfSteel: Her boob-size is the first thing Naruto notices about her. She's also a pretty skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
* TheBully: A female one, mainly toward Ruka.
* TheCheerleader: The lead cheerleader, in fact.
* DanceBattler: Justified by her gymnastics experience.
* KnifeNut: She fights Naruto while armed with a switchblade during the thirty-third Gaiden.
* ManipulativeBitch: During the forty-second and forty-third Gaidens, she blackmails Ruka into setting Naruto up to be attacked by Suigetsu, or else she'll release Ruka's deepest secret to the whole school (that she's got a part-time job, which is a violation of school rules).
* ProudBeauty: She loves to soak up compliments about her beauty. Hence, she doesn't respond well when Ruka disses her age by calling her "Sana-baa-chan (Grandma Sana), early edition."
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Light violet, to be exact.

!!Royama Ruka
A classmate of Ino's, and Sana's main target for bullying, she's introduced in the thirty-third Gaiden.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's polite, deferential, friendly, and loving toward her family, but if you set yourself up for a verbal zinger from her, she won't pull any punches.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's got a surprisingly vicious verbal zinger in response to Sana telling her not to try pursuing the handsome upperclassman Nakao Amai. Ino and Naruto are actually taken aback when they hear it.
--> '''Sana:''' Guys as youthful and full of passion like Amai-kun don't want little chickadees like you--they want women on their level, women who can match their enthusiasm. You'll have to wait another ten years before you'll even begin to qualify.
--> '''Ruka:''' Then if that description of what Amai-sempai likes is true, then in ten years you'll be too old and saggy to match his enthusiasm, isn't that right?
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
* SingleGirlSeeksMostPopularGuy: What got her on Sana's radar for bullying in the first place--she was seeking the attention of the handsome and popular upperclassman Nakao Amai.

!!Nakao Amai
A senior student at Konoha High School who's introduced in the thirty-third Gaiden, he's the president of the debate club and a real favorite among the girls.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
* SingleGirlSeeksMostPopularGuy: He's the subject of this for Ruka.

!!Nigai
The new leader of the Tiger Dragons after Chi and Yukata, introduced during the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: How he gets the leadership position. It helps that he's far more ruthless than either Chi or Yukata.
* CombatPragmatist: Amply demonstrates that gang-fights aren't about fair play or honor, what with him using a switchblade to turn the tables against Yukata.
* DreadlockWarrior: Like his canon counterpart, he wears his hair in thick dreadlocks. He's also a brutal fighter who's not afraid to throw down with Naruto, a Kyuushingai.
* EvilCounterpart: To Chi. Both of them are Tiger Dragons and both have led the gang, but whereas Chi is cautious, laid-back, and knows when to pick his battles, Nigai is headstrong, proactive, and dead-set on avenging himself and the gang on whoever he perceives as having wronged them. Nigai also derides Chi's leadership style for making the gang appear weak.
--> '''Nigai:''' The Tiger Dragons used to be the baddest gang in Sound City, but ever since Chi took control, what's our record been? We've been reduced to acting like errand boys for a bunch of crazy loons, running from cops, even getting humiliated by a Kyuushingai! Is this what we're supposed to be all about? I say no!
* MeaningfulName: As outlined on the ''Naruto'' Wiki page, Nigai's name means "bitter." Nigai is TheResenter toward Chi.
* PetTheDog: Upon wresting the leadership of the gang from Yukata, Nigai's first instruction is for some of the goons to take her to the hospital.
* TheResenter: Despised how, in his view, Chi's leadership style watered down the Tiger Dragons' threat level in Sound City.
* TheStarscream: He had always opposed Chi's leadership of the Tiger Dragons, and opposed Yukata's appointment as interim leader by Chi. The thirty-fifth Gaiden opens with him challenging Yukata for the leadership position and successfully usurping it from her.

!!Detective Chiba Yurika
A detective attached to the Sound City Police Department, introduced in the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She didn't have a surname in canon.
* PunnyName: Her first name, Yurika, sounds exactly like what you think. [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore She herself has heard it all before]].
--> '''Yurika:''' My parents were crime-scene investigators with a poor sense of humor.

!!Yui
Yukata's estranged mother, introduced in the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Yui and Yukata have no relation to each other in canon.

!!Karyu
The new leader of the Purple Storm Gang after Arashi, introduced in the thirty-sixth Gaiden.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He and Nigai concoct a plan for three members of their combined gangs to kidnap Yumi, but upon being informed by them that Naruto and Yurika are in the vicinity, Karyu--rightly suspecting the gangsters won't last against a Kyuushingai and a cop who's likely armed--tells them to come back and that they'll try the kidnapping another time.

!!Kohada
A prostitute who's introduced in the thirty-eighth Gaiden working at Konoha Town's infamous Pudding Place whorehouse.
* BrokenBird: Her backstory was ''not'' kind to her, from her losing her father in the 365 days to her being betrayed into sexual slavery by a friend's boyfriend.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Starts to defrost upon meeting Han, the first man she's interacted with since her journey into prostitution who's interested in helping her without wanting any physical favors in exchange.
* {{Determinator}}: Even after her friend committed suicide to escape their brutal treatment, Kohada herself vowed to carry on in the hope that one day she'd be able to pursue her lifelong dream of journalism, through which she could then tell her story.
* DisappearedDad: Her father was killed by marauding gangsters during the 365 days.
* ForcedToWatch: She was made to watch while her friend was gang-raped as punishment for refusing to pleasure a john, and was threatened with being similarly gang-raped if she tried to look away.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: The heart of gold is ''very'' deeply buried due to her experiences leaving her jaded.
* MissingMom: Her mother died from pneumonia complications when Kohada was 11.
* RapeAsBackstory: She and her friend were both subjected to this multiple times during their initial days in sexual captivity by the friend's boyfriend and his friends. The friend was DrivenToSuicide after one particularly vicious gang-bang by the boyfriend and five of his pals, but Kohada swore to continue living on in spite of it all.
* SexAsRiteOfPassage: In her line of work, she has occasionally facilitated this for a few guys who've been honest enough to admit that they've only come to her to silence their friends' taunts that AManIsNotAVirgin; for these guys, she'll willingly go all out to show them the ropes.
* StepfordSnarker: She's introduced with a very sarcastic mouth, but behind the snark is a badly damaged woman.
* {{Tsundere}}: According to Karyu, Kohada fills this fantasy niche for clients who frequent the Pudding Place.

[[folder:Spoiler Characters]]
Characters whose very mention in this wiki would reveal spoiler-ific information pertaining to the story's plot. As a result, none of the information in this folder is spoiler-tagged.

!!Shimada Yachi
The former ambassador to the foreign power where the now-infamous Futona Seigi scandal took place, after a drunken tryst between her and Jiraiya inside a weapons-control room resulted in him accidentally launching a rocket that killed several of their own soldiers, including Gaara's parents.
* TheAtoner: Concerning what happened when she was in office, the night the soldiers were accidentally killed.
* DeathSeeker: Implied in the third Gaiden, as she [[FaceDeathWithDignity calmly prepares for Kankuro to kill her]] if that will satisfy his wish to avenge his parents. However, Kankuro isn't there for that.
* DecompositeCharacter: Yachi and her daughter Villette were actually the same woman in canon, the former leader of the Nadeshiko Village--specifically, Yachi was the woman's older self and Villette was her younger self. The author separated them into two different characters for this story and made them mother and daughter.
* DefectorFromDecadence: She was the only government official, among those in on the knowledge of what happened in the scandal, who refused to go along with their DeceasedFallGuyGambit. She resigned her office as a result, in protest. This is the only reason Kankuro spares her life when he confronts her in the third Gaiden.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Yachi always expected someone from the government might come to kill her because of her knowledge of what really happened in the Futona Seigi incident.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She wasn't identified by name in canon.

!!Shimada Villette
Shimada Yachi's daughter.
* ChekhovsGunman: She first appeared as an unidentified woman who Aoi accosted and harassed in Chapter 4 of the main story. As it turns out in Chapter 215, she's the daughter of the ex-ambassador, who is herself a pivotal character to the back-story, and after seeing the news-cast about LOVE's overthrow of Parliament and an additional news-blurb about Naruto, on recognizing the blond boy as one of the kids who saved her from that earlier assault, and discovering that Naruto's mother Kushina is trying to intercept LOVE's plan, she convinces her mother to tell the public about what happened in the Futona Seigi scandal.
* DecompositeCharacter: See Yachi's entry above.
* MinorMajorCharacter: Initially introduced in a brief scene and then not seen again for over 200 chapters until it's revealed that she's related to one of the most important figures in the back-story.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Yachi's entry above.

!!Uzumaki Enishi
Naruto's and Hinata's son, in the epilogue.
* BrattyHalfPint
* DecompositeCharacter: No, Enishi isn't an original character; he's actually based on an ImagineSpot Naruto had in canon where he briefly wished he'd had red hair like his mother Kushina.
* FieryRedhead: Male example, likely inherited from his grandmother Kushina.
* NamedByTheAdaptation
* ThePrankster: He's a real prankster. His EstablishingCharacterMoment has him running away from Suigetsu and Jugo because he'd tricked them into sitting in their squad-car after he'd smeared the seats with jam.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Burger Castle's burgers.

!!Uchiha Suiren
Itachi's and Yugito's daughter, in the epilogue.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Suiren's got no connection to Yugito or any of the Uchihas in canon.

!!Asuka
Ino's and Sai's daughter, in the epilogue.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, she was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces' Thundercloud Unit, none of whom were identified by name.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She's got no connection to Ino or Sai in canon.

!!Uchiha Lando
Sasuke's and Sakura's son, in the epilogue.
* BrattyHalfPint
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Lando's got no connection to Sakura or any of the Uchihas in canon.

!!Akahoshi, Shijimi, Ishikawa and Jibachi
The four government ministers who collaborated with Jiraiya to cover up his accidental killing of their own military personnel when he triggered a rocket-launch during a drunken tryst with Shimada Yachi. Akahoshi is the Minister of Tourism; Shijimi is the Minister of Foreign Affairs (and Yachi's direct supervisor); Ishikawa is the Minister of Justice (and Jiraiya's direct supervisor); and Jibachi is the Minister of Information.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Shijimi and Ishikawa were never stated to be outright villainous in canon (unless one counts Shijimi's constant requests to retrieve her runaway cat as villainous, given how often the cat runs away).
* AscendedExtra: All of them, to varying degrees. Akahoshi was the fourth Hoshikage and the main villain of the Star Guard Mission filler arc, Shijimi was the wife of the Fire Daimyo, Ishikawa was the first Tsuchikage, and Jibachi was another filler villain and the grandson of the first Tsuchikage. Here, they play a crucial role in the fic's back-story.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Happens to Ishikawa at the beginning of the tenth Gaiden; he's so distracted by the events of the 365 days (and his own indirect role in causing that event) that he runs a red light and crashes into a truck, dying as a result.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Even Jibachi, who came up with the plot to cover up the soldiers' deaths, and Shijimi, who approved of said plot, both voiced disapproval of Ishikawa drafting a known cutthroat criminal (Yagura) and two young boys (Naruto and Gaara) into the Kyuushingai training program.
* GovernmentConspiracy: Jibachi was the one who came up with it, and the other three Ministers and Jiraiya agreed to it.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Gaara's plan to overthrow the government, the violence that sparked the 365 days, the subsequent devastation caused across the region because of the Kyuushingai and the warring criminals taking advantage of the chaos, the trauma inflicted to the Kira brothers and the deaths of Chief Kaiza's wife and Tenten's parents during that period, the formation of Akatsuki, the formation of LOVE, the creation of Gold Sand, the murders of several doctors and their families at Utakata's hands, Hanabi's kidnapping as masterminded by Akatsuki, Naruto's torture and Roshi's murder at the hands of Akatsuki, Yahiko's attempt on Sakura's life as part of his RevengeByProxy move on Dr. Haruno--most if not all of the story's major conflicts and tragedies can be traced back, in varying measures, to these four, since they came up with the directive to frame their own soldiers (including Gaara's parents) for treason in order to cover up Jiraiya's accidentally blowing the soldiers up with a missile, [[MyCountryRightOrWrong all in an effort to keep hold of international trade agreements and to save face with other countries]].
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: While all of them have this as their underlying reason for going along with the cover-up, Akahoshi is the one who's most vocal about it, citing the trade agreements his Ministry is set to lose if the scandal goes public.
* PlausibleDeniability: Shijimi is the one to suggest that this would come into play for the Prime Minister concerning the soldiers' deaths, if they go along with Jibachi's plan.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Shijimi is the only female of the lot who's in on their cover-up (since Yachi refused to play along).
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]: Akahoshi.

[[folder:Uzumaki Naruto]]
!!Uzumaki Naruto
The main protagonist of the story, he is a former member of the infamous nine-member group known collectively as the "Kyuushingai," or "Nine Terrors;" his code-name during his time with the group was "Kurama the Fox." At the start of the story, he's just moving to Konoha Town to live with his mother, Kushina.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: He's far smarter in this fanfic than he was in canon. The training regimen he underwent while a part of the Kyuushingai explains this [[spoiler:especially with the revelation that much of his intelligence was artificially ingrained]].
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: In his back-story at Uzushio High School, following his gang-fight that resulted in mass property damage at the school, Naruto fell victim to this when suspicion was (correctly) cast on him being a Kyuushingai. It didn't help that the city, having been among the hardest hit by the Kyuushingai during the 365 days, was still feeling raw from the incident.
* AnimalMotif: His is the fox. Aside from it being part of his code-name, on his own he's cunning, he's stealthy, and he's pulled out of several close shaves by sheer luck.
* AntiHero: He has shades of this, despite being the main character. While he does regret having to do the things he did just to survive the 365 days, for much of the story he justifies his actions by noting that he only killed people who attacked him or were hurting innocents, and as such he was [[IDidWhatIHadToDo doing what he had to do]]. Much of his CharacterDevelopment has to do with him coming to terms with the reality that not everybody who suffered during the 365 days is going to see it the same way. Then there's his willingness to brutally beat up opponents and torture people (by making them watch ''Film/{{Twilight}}'', mind you, but even still...).
* TheAtoner: He's not proud of his past as a member of the Kyuushingai.
* BadassBoast: Gives a menacing one to Kurotsuchi when he lets her know via phone call that he's coming for her after her goons have attempted to burn down Mabui's spa.
--> Once upon a time I was known as Kurama the Fox of the Kyuushingai, and during the 365 days I killed 427 people with my own two hands. You could have a legion to guard you--it still won’t be enough to save you from me. So clean your neck and wait for me.
* BadassFamily: His father's a black-ops agent, his mother's capable of beating the ever-loving crap out of gangsters half her age, and Naruto himself is a Kyuushingai.
* BadassInDistress: Gets this way during the Abduction Arc [[spoiler:when Akatsuki and Mizuki's gang kidnap Hanabi as bait to draw him in, then torture him almost to death]].
* BashBrothers: With Sasuke, during the Spa Inferno arc.
* BerserkButton: Harming any of his friends, particularly Ino or Hinata, will trigger Kyuushingai-level rage. [[spoiler:He would've killed Aoi over the latter's beat-down of Ino in Chapter 25 if not for Sasuke's intervention; and he gave Zabuza a savage thrashing and near-throat-cutting for injuring Hinata in Chapter 41, but Ino managed to talk him down in that incident]].
* BigEater: By Kushina's testimony.
* BrilliantButLazy: Naruto is quite bored in some of his classes and isn't shown to do the requisite work (though considering his Kyuushingai gifted intelligence boost this is a justified case), but he's skilled enough to completely solve a Rubik's cube in the time it takes Hiashi to say the first few letters of the alphabet. It is also implied that he can solve it even faster but he deliberately solved it at G just for a pun.
--> '''Hiashi:''' ''(Naruto starts on the cube)'' A. B. C. D. E. F.
--> '''Naruto:''' ''(finished)'' [[JustForPun Gee]], that was easy!
--> '''Hiashi:''' Wha--?
* BrokenHero: This version of Naruto isn't as BookDumb as his canon counterpart, and he's a terrifyingly skilled fighter capable of taking down gangs all by himself. Yet he's got some serious loathing for his time as a Kyuushingai, and the trauma of having to partake of city-wide massacres day after day for a whole year has taken a toll on him by the time the story's main plot has begun.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The Brooding Boy to Hinata's Gentle Girl.
* BullyHunter: People who abuse others weaker than themselves are ''very'' unfortunate if they get onto Naruto's radar. Two particular examples stand out--he tore Aoi and his Hall Monitors new ones for abusing their authority, and took on Kurotsuchi's mob single-handedly after she attempted to use intimidation tactics on a small-business owner.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: A frequent trait of his, including but not limited to: his rescuing of the Yamanaka family store from Mizuki and his thugs, his beating of Aoi and the Hall Monitors' Guild when they hassle innocent townspeople, his going to rescue Hanabi when she's been kidnapped, his helping Mabui when her spa is threatened by Kurotsuchi...
* CombatPragmatist: This was his specialty as a member of the Kyuushingai, according to him. Among other things, he's proven willing to knock opponents in the crotch, kick out kneecaps, and take advantage of injuries he knows his opponents have.
--> '''Naruto:''' Back during the 365 days, I specialized in practical combat--break limbs here and there, use as few moves as possible to beat the opponent, all that kind of stuff.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Naruto always believed that, given the skills that the Nine Terrors learned, they should have used such skills for the betterment of mankind. As the 365 days' incident testifies, however, that didn't happen.
* CoveredWithScars: [[spoiler:As a result of his torture at Monjin's hands, Naruto's got numerous scars over his torso; he's also got some on his arms from the same incident, but those aren't quite as noticeable at a casual glance since they were smaller and healed better]].
* CovertPervert: His attempt at distracting himself from thinking sexy thoughts about Mei in class led to him thinking about other girls in the cast in various stages of undress or wearing skimpy clothing.
* CrazyPrepared: Has elements of this, especially made prominent in the Vengeance Arc. On learning that Hana and Hokuto have been kidnapped and he's being required to show up at a certain place alone to get them back, Naruto's response is to dress in full black (along with borrowing his mother's Shadow Fox mask), wearing a metal plate underneath a bandanna covering his hair and forehead, and arrive at the meeting-site an hour ahead of the stipulated time so as to scout the area, in case it proves to be a trap as he suspects it is. [[spoiler:Good thing too, because Temari attempts to snipe him in the head from a hidden spot, but the bullet is deflected by said metal plate and mask]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: While his family life averts this, his life between the 365 days and the start of the main story badly affected him. Naruto's past as a member of the Kyuushingai haunts him to this very day, and his move to Konoha Town was not only an attempt to avoid a criminal record, but also an attempt to start fresh and move on with his life.
* DeadpanSnarker: He's got quite a few zingers for the appropriate targets. Unfortunately for him, [[SnarkToSnarkCombat Kushina can snark right back]].
* DitzyGenius: While he's significantly smarter than his canon counterpart [[spoiler:thanks to artificially-implanted intelligence during his Kyuushingai training]], Naruto still has moments of daffiness, one of the earliest examples being his surprise that anyone would suspect him and Ino of being in a relationship (which earns him a flattening punch from the irritated Ino for voicing it so loudly).
* ExperiencedProtagonist: As a result of the training regimen that all the Kyuushingai had to go through [[spoiler:including artificially-implanted knowledge in various subject areas]], Naruto is extremely skilled at fighting long before the story begins. The 365-day chaotic period itself also played a role in him becoming this.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He loves and cares for his friends and family, and has regrets about his time as a Kyuushingai. That being said, if you press him [[BerserkButton or threaten his loved ones' safety]], expect to get your limbs broken.
* GoodScarsEvilScars / ScarsAreForever: In this universe, those familiar whisker-marks on his face are actually scars, given to him by Gaara right before the 365 days' rampage began. [[spoiler:He gets a lot more all over his body after being tortured by Akatsuki]].
* HeCleansUpNicely: He ''can'' dress up in formal-wear and look good doing so...he just doesn't particularly ''like'' it.
--> '''Naruto:''' I feel like a China doll.
* HeroesFightBarehanded: Usually, though he won't shy away from [[CombatPragmatist using whatever's on hand as a weapon]] if the situation warrants it.
* HopelessSuitor: Was this for Sakura. Fortunately, Hinata was there as a different option.
* HurtingHero: Concerning the 365 days.
* IHatePastMe
* ImprovisedWeaponUser: He's used a soda bottle as a club and a rope as a whip and lasso.
* JadeColoredGlasses
* MyGreatestFailure: The 365 days is this for him, specifically because it was a fight between him and Gaara that triggered the event.
* NewTransferStudent: Chapter 2 reveals that Naruto has transferred to Konoha High School from Uzushio High School in Whirl City. It's later revealed that transferring was one of two options he faced after a fight with a gang that caused a great deal of destruction to Uzushio High (the other option was being expelled and arrested by the local police on suspicion of being a Kyuushingai).
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When he found out about Gaara's plot to murder several government officials, Naruto sought to stop Gaara directly. Unfortunately, the ensuing fight resulted in the first few deaths that would kick off the 365 days, which in turn led to numerous more deaths and a lot of property damage [[spoiler:and indirectly led to the death of one of the Kira brothers]]. In the present day, both Yugao and Judge Utatane [[WhatTheHellHero give him hell over it]] during the Tribunal Arc.
* NoBadassToHisValet: There are exactly two people who are not intimidated or impressed by Naruto's experiences as a Kyuushingai--his parents, Minato and Kushina. Both have seen him at his most vulnerable, Kushina has no bones about [[SnarkToSnarkCombat trading insults with him]], and Minato (a black-ops commander) can easily inflict a CurbStompBattle on him ''during training''.
* NomDeMom: Like in the canon series, Naruto takes his surname from Kushina, although it's been confirmed that Minato is alive and works for the military. Turns out it was Minato's idea, to protect his family from any enemies he might make due to his black-ops work.
* NotAMorningPerson: Naruto doesn't do well in the mornings, in one instance grumbling that the morning should go away and come back at 2:00 p.m.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In the first chapter, when Naruto is just arriving in Konoha Town, he acts like a very clueless newcomer to avoid being beaten up by Dosu, Zaku and Kin even as they're trashing the Yamanaka greengrocery, and in the second chapter he's acting as though he's terrified of being beaten up by other Konoha High students for mouthing off to them. This is the same guy who was part of a nine-member group that caused panic across an entire continent for a whole year's worth of time, and in the present day is capable of single-handedly beating up a whole gang with nothing but a soda bottle.
* OddFriendship: With Shino and Minister Byakuren. Also Yugao, to a lesser extent, though their association didn't start off exactly friendly.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Tried to pass himself off as this early on, complete with ObfuscatingStupidity; unfortunately, it didn't quite take. It definitely didn't work back when he was at Uzushio High School, given [[OneManArmy what he did to Sumaru's gang]] at that time.
* PrimaryColorChampion: Of course, Naruto's got blond hair. During the Underground Fists arc, he wears a red jacket and jeans and a blue undershirt (see the image on the main page). During the final arc, he wears a red jacket with blue jeans, and later swaps out the jacket for a red T-shirt while wearing a pair of jeans that's an even deeper shade of blue.
* RedIsHeroic: As explained immediately above.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Sasuke's blue.
* SecondYearProtagonist: He starts the story as a transfer student in his second year of high school (his first year was spent at Uzushio High School in Whirl City).
* SherlockScan: A skill he possesses from his training with the Kyuushingai. It allows him to notice Jiraiya's right hand has wrinkles from using too much lotion for, uh, [[ADateWithRosiePalms personal business]] [[spoiler:and also to notice that Nohara Rin uses makeup to hide her DomesticAbuse scars]].
* SleevesAreForWimps: Occasionally wears a sleeveless jacket, most notably during the Underground Fists Arc. Also, at one point during the final fight with Gaara, he rips off one of the sleeves from his jacket (albeit to use as makeshift bandages).
* SurvivorGuilt: Naruto's been suffering this ever since the end of the 365 days, as he admits in Chapter 26.
--> '''Naruto:''' Do you know how many nights I'd go to bed hating that I was still alive while people I'd never met and would never get to know were dead because of what I helped to do?
* TheseHandsHaveKilled: Part of his SurvivorGuilt complex.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Wouldn't be Naruto without the ramen, although his love of it is toned down to more realistic levels here.
* WideEyedIdealist: Used to be this, most notably concerning what he could do with the training he would receive as a government. A flashback reveals that he was quite gung-ho about using his training to serve his country, even after Itachi [[spoiler:and Dr. Haruno]] warned him that it would not be all sunshine and roses. Then the 365 days happened and he got his JadeColoredGlasses.
* WillfullyWeak: Not weak, per se, but Naruto intentionally holds back whenever he fights, to the point that it's become subconscious. This is justified, seeing as being a former member of the disbanded Kyuushingai, he's arguably one of the strongest fighters in the country and maybe even the world, and therefore can easily cripple someone, even if he hadn't intended to do so.
* WouldHitAGirl: If that girl is an opponent, then yes. Tenten is the first example.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Naruto's Family Members]]
The members of Naruto's immediate and extended family; the latter group is introduced in the thirty-ninth Gaiden where they come to spend Christmas with Naruto, Kushina and Minato.

!!Uzumaki Kushina
Naruto's mother, and a major source of support for him and good advice for his peers.
* ActionMom: Among other things, she frightens off Kimimaro's gang [[spoiler:despite having just been shot]], fights Mangetsu with relative ease and only gets hit once when she drops her guard, and violently rebuffs a break-in and murder attempt by Dosu and Zaku.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: She is this to Naruto, especially when combined with her tendency to snark about his relationships with girls. And there's also her fan-girl attitude toward the popular ''Shadow Fox'' comic, including having a cosplay costume, which causes Naruto to do a double-take the first time he sees her wearing it.
* CombatPragmatist: When forced to defend herself, she proves to be this in spades, including liberal use of the GroinAttack and using anything she can grab as a weapon.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: As depicted in this fanfic, Kushina usually appears as a (mostly) motherly housewife who likes to cook, trades VolleyingInsults with her own son, cosplays as the in-universe female Franchise/{{Batman}} expy, throws around [[DeadpanSnarker some really wicked zingers]] ([[SnarkToSnarkCombat usually in response to Naruto's own zingers]]), plays video games, owns a PornStash, and is heavily implied to [[ADateWithRosiePalms do non-food-related things with cucumbers]]. This same woman is also married to a government agent and is the mother of one of the Kyuushingai, and as such she is perfectly capable of taking care of herself if need be, as Dosu and Zaku find out to their sorrow.
* DamselInDistress: [[DefiedTrope Defied]]. [[CombatPragmatist Violently]].
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Naruto implies more than once that she engages in this with cucumbers. Kushina's not amused.
* DeadpanSnarker: She engages in frequent SnarkToSnarkCombat with Naruto.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Chapter 56, "Reckless Driver." It was a BigDamnHeroes moment, though, so it's perfectly excusable.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: If Mei's rather flustered response to meeting her for the first time is any indication.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: She got Minato.
* FieryRedhead: Mostly toward Naruto, during comedic situations.
* {{Housewife}}: For the most part, and she clearly enjoys cooking delicious meals for Naruto and his friends.
* HiddenDepths: She's generally quite cheerful, spends most of her time at home cooking and doing typical housewife stuff, and on the more eccentric end she cosplays as the in-universe comic book character Shadow Fox and also owns her very own porn stash. However, under serious circumstance she proves to be a source of good maternal wisdom to whoever needs it. [[spoiler:Going even deeper, she's got some resentment toward her husband Minato for distancing himself from his family, to the point of requesting Kushina to retake her maiden name, for the sake of protecting her and Naruto due to Minato's black-ops work, and subsequently leaving her alone to deal with Naruto's post-365 days trauma. [[StepfordSmiler She hides her bitterness very well up to that point]]]].
* HotBlooded: She has one hell of a temper, not unlike canon. It's usually played for laughs, but the few times it's actually played for drama, it's significant.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Her very own ramen pot, or a hot cup of ramen. [[ImprovisedWeaponUser In her defense, she had to improvise]].
* MamaBear: She loves her son, VolleyingInsults aside. And she's not going to stand for him being hurt, even if he's a Kyuushingai and can well take care of himself. [[spoiler:She even goes as far as to physically threaten the business executive who helped facilitate Naruto's abduction, while wearing a disguise to hide who she really is]].
--> '''Kushina:''' Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find my son. And if I do not find him in the same condition I last saw him, I guarantee you, '''this whole town will burn!'''
* NotAMorningPerson: And now you know where Naruto gets it from. Witness her response to an early-morning phone call that forces her to get out of bed:
--> '''Kushina:''' You're looking for a quick way to commit suicide, aren't you?
* SparedByTheAdaptation: You know she's dead in canon, right?
* SupremeChef: Naruto's friends have lauded her cooking prowess more than once.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: In contrast to her canon self, the girly aspect of Kushina's character gets more prevalence here, as she's generally seen in her kitchen and doing stuff around the home. That being said, she is just as likely to beat the crap out of you with a pot as she is to cook a delicious meal in it.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ramen, and she's even more obsessive about it than ''Naruto''.
--> '''Kushina:''' In this house, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis you--do not--spill--ramen]]--especially when it's being prepared!

!!Namikaze Minato
Naruto's father and Kushina's husband, he gets mentioned several times throughout the story before being formally introduced in Chapter 57. He's the head of the black-ops investigation team Yuyami.
* ActionDad
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Naruto, in terms of combat skill. He's actually able to put Naruto flat on his back without Naruto being able to land even a single hit.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Implied. We know he's the leader of Yuyami, which includes Yugito, a former Kyuushingai and an ex-cop, and Itachi, a skilled combatant and gunslinger, and also that he's capable of [[TrainingFromHell mopping the floor with Naruto as a means of training the latter]]. He's definitely got what it takes.
* BerserkButton: Threatening harm to his family is basically a good way to sign your own death warrant. As shown in the fifteenth Gaiden, he was willing to [[KillItWithFire set a group of thugs on fire]] because they sought to burn down the Uzumaki home with Naruto and Kushina inside.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: His behavior is quite comical at times. He makes many a ShoutOut to real-life pop culture in the form of quotations, gives joking quips about [[ShipperOnDeck how he expects Itachi and Yugito to hook up]], and casually rebuffs Yugito's attempts at physical assault in response to his ribbing (these in themselves played for laughs) while being the target of both Yugito's (again comical) death threats and Itachi's insults...but then you remember that he's the field leader for a black-ops team, giving orders to said two members (Yugito a former Kyuushingai, Itachi a gun-slinging marksman) [[spoiler:and [[PapaWolf also made a point]] of visiting the home of the man who led Naruto into a trap by Akatsuki, without actually killing said man due to the decision to leave him to [[MamaBear Kushina]]]]. Not to mention, during the second TimeSkip he was in charge of Naruto's training, with Naruto (also a Kyuushingai) being completely unable to land even ''a single hit'' on Minato during the one flashback scene showcasing the TrainingFromHell Minato put him through; and he can and will use the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique on anyone he needs information out of without batting an eye, ''and'' Kankuro implies in Chapter 59 that it would be a suicidal move to confront Minato head-on because, if he'd volunteered for the Kyuushingai training program, they wouldn't have needed more people than just him. Digest all that for a minute.
* BigGood: Essentially. While he's taking orders from the Minister of Justice, he's the one directing how the good guys carry out their objectives.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: In sharp contrast to his canon self, Minato is incredibly immature and childish in his behavior, ribbing his own subordinates and family over little things that are bound to annoy them while being absolutely casual about it, and has a hint of perversion to his character (read: disguising a recording device as a tampon for Yugito to wear). This is the same man who's in charge of a highly-effective black-ops investigative team.
* ColdBloodedTorture: He was willing to burn [[spoiler:Temari]] [[GroinAttack on the genitals]] with a blowtorch for the sake of getting information, ''without hesitating about it, at that''. Granted, he ''is'' head of a black-ops team, and the information he was seeking was necessary to save lives, but even still...
* DeathGlare: In the fifteenth Gaiden, he's described as having one that could melt solid steel if it were possible. Granted, the recipient of the glare ''did'' try to murder Naruto and Kushina in their sleep.
* DisappearedDad: Prior to Chapter 57, he was this for Naruto, although not by death, since it was already confirmed that he was still alive. [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou The reason for his absence was because he is in charge of Yuyami, which is investigating the events that led to the 365 days of carnage two years ago]].
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a good guy who'll willingly set people on fire for pissing him off.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Minato's ''good'' with firearms. In the main story, he doesn't miss a single one of his targets, whether with a handgun or a sniper-rife. In the twenty-ninth Gaiden, he proves capable of shooting several criminals in their extremities from several meters away, as well as [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands shooting a gun out of one criminal's hand]], and that's only because he's specifically seeking ''not'' to kill them outright.
* InTheHood: His first appearance in the main story shows him wearing a white pullover jacket with a hood. Chronologically, he's first seen wearing it in the twenty-second Gaiden, set a short while before the start of the main story.
* ManChild: Acts this way at times, especially when teasing Itachi and Yugito about [[ShipperOnDeck the relationship he thinks they should have]].
* OneManArmy: A downplayed example as demonstrated in the fifteenth Gaiden, where he [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly takes out five hoodlums in the space of a few seconds]]. More heavily implied in the main story, where Kankuro indicates that if Minato had volunteered himself for the Kyuushingai training, ''he alone'' would have been all the trainers needed.
* PapaWolf: In the main story, after seeing what's happened to Naruto [[spoiler:as a result of the latter's capture and torture by Mizuki and Akatsuki]], Minato arranges for one perpetrator to get beaten up by Itachi, who already has [[BigBrotherInstinct personal reasons]] to batter the guy. He also pays a personal visit to Mitokado Homura, who was in league with that event, but takes care to hide his true identity and leaves any due violence to [[MamaBear Kushina]]. Then in the twenty-ninth Gaiden, he gets downright ''vicious'' on members of the RoguesGallery [[spoiler:when they plan to shoot up Naruto's wedding]].
* ParentalNeglect: He's been accused five different times of perpetrating this with Naruto. Put it this way: when ''the Prime Minister himself'' calls you out on being a bad parent, you ''know'' you've been a bad parent. Minato, to his credit, doesn't try to deny it.
* ShipperOnDeck: Actively encourages Itachi and Yugito to get together.
* SlasherSmile: Gives '''a positively menacing one''' to members of the RoguesGallery in the twenty-ninth Gaiden [[spoiler:after preventing them from crashing Naruto's wedding]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Han is able to recognize Minato as Naruto's father because of this, the first time they meet.
* TortureTechnician: Want to know how readily he'll do the dirty work in his black-ops job? [[spoiler:He knocks out Temari, then ties her, blindfolded, to her own bed and burns off a part of her hair with a blowtorch, then threatens to [[GroinAttack use said blowtorch on her vagina]] if she doesn't cough up the info he wants]].

!!Uzumaki Karin
Naruto's cousin, and Nagato and Jumira's daughter.
* {{Meganekko}}: Just like in canon, though she doesn't appear (so far) to be a {{Tsundere}} like her canon counterpart.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She’s Nagato’s daughter, Naruto’s first cousin, and Kushina and Mito’s niece as opposed to being (at best) a distant relative.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Minato notes that she takes after her mother, except Jumira doesn't wear glasses.

!!Uzumaki Nagato
Karin's father, Kushina's older brother and Naruto's maternal uncle.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: While they're all members of the Uzumaki clan, there's otherwise no direct relation between Nagato and Naruto, Kushina, Mito, or Karin and her mother.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: Not as bad as Mito, but Nagato is coolly formal toward Minato.

!!Uzumaki Jumira
Karin's mother, Nagato's wife and Naruto's aunt by marriage.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Karin's mother wasn't identified by name in canon.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: While she would technically be related to Kushina, Mito, Naruto and Nagato in canon by virtue of them being members of the same clan, there wasn't any overt family connection there.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: According to Minato, she's basically an older Karin minus the glasses.

!!Uzumaki Mito
Kushina's older sister and Naruto's maternal aunt, and she's the oldest of the senior Uzumaki siblings.
* AdaptationalJerkass: While she's not a lawbreaker, this version of Mito is significantly more acidic than her canon counterpart, who was a mentor to Kushina and was noted for having compassion.
* AgeLift: In canon, at the time she and Kushina interacted, Mito was an old woman. In this fic, her younger incarnation is the version used as Kushina's sister.
* AloofBigSister: Kushina recounts that she and Mito had a rocky relationship growing up, as Mito never approved of anything Kushina ever did.
* CoolCar: She drives a blue Shelby Cobra.
* TheDreaded: Within the Uzumaki/Namikaze family, just the mere mention of the possibility of her coming causes Kushina to [[OhCrap freeze in terror]] and Minato to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere attempt to flee the premises]]. Keep in mind, both of them are parents to a Kyuushingai, plus Minato's a black-ops agent.
--> '''Minato:''' I'd rather swim with sharks than deal with her!
* InSeriesNickname: Naruto and Karin both refer to her as "the blood-haired bitch," due to her acidic personality.
* LethalChef: In [[SupremeChef Kushina's]] words, Mito is her exact opposite when it comes to the kitchen. According to her, Mito can't tell cinnamon from meat seasoning, and during their school days she almost burned down her school's Home Economics room [[EpicFail while trying to boil water]]. Minato recounts how she nearly killed him with a Christmas cake during a previous visit.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: She and Minato are openly hostile to each other.
* PetTheDog: While Mito's portrayed in this fic as snobbish and disagreeable, Karin's ExactEavesdropping on Nagato's telephone conversation with her prior to the Christmas dinner reveals that, like Nagato, Mito doesn't blame Naruto for the events of the 365 days.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Due to the aforementioned AgeLift, as she’s a PosthumousCharacter in the original.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha High School - Students]]

The list of characters who are students of Konoha High School.

!!Yamanaka Ino
One of Naruto's classmates at Konoha High School, and the first one to both find out about his past as a Kyuushingai and to accept him and become his friend in spite of it. Her family owns a greengrocery store.
* ActionGirl: Very, very active.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: In Chapter 4, Ino is shown to have purchased five shopping bags' worth of shoes...the thing is, though, she's making poor Naruto carry four of the five bags, with him having both hands, his neck and his mouth occupied with the bags as a result.
--> '''Naruto:''' ''(speech impeded by the bag in his mouth)'' Aw vis fer shoes?
--> '''Ino:''' Yes, Naruto, all this for shoes.
* AscendedExtra: In the sense that, in canon, she was one of the main supporting cast but otherwise didn't impact the plot as hugely as, say, Hinata, Shikamaru or Gaara; whereas in this fic, she's one of the major characters from the get-go.
* BatterUp: Her weapon of choice in the first two chapters, used against Naruto during their first meeting (she thought he was trying to rob her father), and then against some of Mizuki's goons before they manage to overpower and restrain her. She hasn't been seen wielding a bat since then, though.
* BerserkButton: Don't waste pudding around her. Played for comedy.
* BoisterousBruiser: She's not exactly a quiet individual. Nor is she a ''weak'' one, either.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: She's not one to stand back while innocent civilians are being hassled by thugs. The first noteworthy example of this shows when she attacks Aoi for trying to sexually assault a random woman ''long'' before Naruto gets involved in the fray; and much later, she's the first to challenge Darui for his shaking-down of local store-owners, even when Shikamaru and Choji are reluctant to get involved.
* CordonBleughChef: Bordering on LethalChef, at that. She makes a dish of pepperpot soup[[note]]a real-life dish native to the Caribbean, with ingredients consisting of peppers, beef, tapioca sauce, cinnamon, garlic, onion, thyme, basil, sugar and salt[[/note]] and serves it to the gang in Chapter 100...and only Choji and Kushina can stomach it, the latter (herself a SupremeChef) pointing out just what Ino's done wrong after a few test-tastes. For Naruto, Shikamaru and Sasuke, though, the concoction "tastes like vomit."
--> '''Choji:''' Well, it doesn't ''smell'' toxic...
* FragileSpeedster: According to Kushina's observation in Chapter 96, during Ino's brief spar with Hinata. It's indicated much earlier than this, too, particularly during her fight with Aoi in the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational tournament, where she's fast enough to deliver blows and get out of reach but runs into trouble once her opponent manages to land one good hit on her.
* GroinAttack: She tends to inflict this more often than not. She has a particularly painful one that she came up with to deter any DirtyOldMan who'd try to hit on her while shopping at her family's store: grab the balls and ''twist''. It's also just as effective on women as on men, as Kin found out to her agony.
* TheMatchmaker: Ino, being a ShipperOnDeck for Naruto and Hinata, seeks to get the two of them talking by luring Naruto into a classroom where Hinata's waiting to see him.
* TheNotLoveInterest: Let's see. She was introduced as a main character, she was the first to accept Naruto in spite of his past, and she's displayed {{Tsundere}} behavior around him, not to mention a few of the readers' reviews asked essentially if the two of them would hook up. Despite all this, though, the author has insisted repeatedly that, while they are certainly quite close, Naruto and Ino are not hitching up, and indeed Ino herself is TheMatchmaker and ShipperOnDeck for Naruto and Hinata. [[spoiler:Cemented by her RelationshipUpgrade with Sai]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Hinata's blue.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Naruto and Hinata.
* SweetTooth: Given her perpetual craving for pudding.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to Hinata's girly-girl.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She's active in sports and street fighting, but she's still got the typical interest in boys.
* TomboyishPonytail
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pudding.

!!Haruno Sakura
Ino's main rival at Konoha High School, and an early (and failed) love interest to Naruto. She's also the daughter of Haruno Kizashi, the chief surgeon at Konoha Hospital.
* AcademicAlphaBitch: Her first appearance paints her this way, always lording over Ino because of the fact that, a year prior, she'd gotten the highest GPA out of all the girls in their class (Ino came a close second, losing out by five points). It's later deconstructed, however, in that behaving this way will bleed into one's social interactions with others, which in turn will lead to one getting viewed as a stuck-up, pretentious, arrogant blowhard who everyone resents and avoids. Sakura later finds this out the hard way when Sasuke, the object of her crush, tears into her with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech over her behavior; and even well into one Gaiden chapter which takes place long after the events of the main story, another student, Haruna, is still unwilling to see any good qualities in Sakura ''because'' the latter practiced this former mindset.
--> '''Sasuke:''' You refuse to admit when someone has a quality you lack, yet you obsess over it when you ''think'' they do. You don't hesitate to put such people down, and make enemies out of them.
* ActionGirl: She's not about to let the boys outdo her during the fight with the Blood Mist Gang in Chapter 41.
* BadassBookworm: She was the top-performing female student in her year-group during the previous school year prior to the start of the story. She's also capable of dishing out a beating in the middle of a group brawl, or fighting Ino in one-on-one combat.
* BatterUp: She proves to be quite handy with a baseball bat during the fight with the Blood Mist Gang, even stylishly twirling it around for a bit before slugging one of the thugs with it.
* CherryBlossomGirl: Her name's Sakura, she has pink hair, she's associated with medical expertise (indirectly--her father's a surgeon), she's a LoveInterest for Sasuke, and she's strongly associated with cherry blossoms in Chapter 152 [[spoiler:during Sasuke's rather erotic dream about her following their RelationshipUpgrade]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: When first introduced, she's absolutely uncivil to Naruto, bitchy to Ino, and haughty to everyone else not named Sasuke. It takes a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech from Sasuke for her to start thawing, but it's not until [[spoiler:her family's home and car are vandalized by a pair of students who resented her behavior]] that she really starts humbling herself.
* ForeheadOfDoom: Naturally enough, her having this provides Ino with fodder to use in response to Sakura's "pig" insults. Their first conversation in Chapter 2 is just the first example.
--> '''Sakura:''' Eating alone again, piggy? And is that a pork sausage you've got? Don't tell me you've turned cannibal now?
--> '''Ino:''' Since when do you care what I eat, Great Forehead of China?
* HiddenDepths: For most of the story, especially prior to her CharacterDevelopment, Sakura comes across as shallow, vain, arrogant, overly proud of her academic skill, and outright snobbish...but she's also been wrestling with the fact that [[WhenYouComingHomeDad her father's always staying out late at work and is consequently rarely home to enjoy a meal with the family]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She might quarrel with Ino frequently, look down on people of lower social standing than herself, and lord her queen-bee status over everyone else...but when [[spoiler:Aoi savagely beats Ino during Sasuke's tournament]], Sakura shows a considerable amount of compassion because, as she herself declares, nobody deserves to undergo something like that.
* RapunzelHair: Sakura's hair is her pride and joy, according to Chapter 2's narrative; however, Ino takes advantage of it during their fight in the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational. Much later, Sakura has Ino [[ImportantHaircut cut it to shoulder-length]] as a sign that she's casting off her perceived weakness.
* RichBitch: She starts the story as this, and it doesn't help that she's the daughter of Konoha Town's resident surgeon. Witness her response to Naruto's attempt to ask her out on a date, in Chapter 3:
--> '''Naruto:''' Say, Sakura-chan, I just got two free-meal coupons to use at Burger Castle, and I was wondering if you'd like to--
--> '''Sakura:''' Forget it! I don't eat at Burger Castle, for your information. I only eat at well-known franchise restaurants or places that have class...and even if I ate at Burger Castle, I wouldn't go on a date with weirdos like you! I only date popular boys, and popular you are not.
* TheRival: For Ino, in everything from academics to school sports to Sasuke.
* SharedUnusualTrait: Sakura's pink hair is seen as being unusual, and here it's explicitly identified as having been inherited from her father.
--> '''Kushina:''' You're the daughter of Haruno Kizashi, the chief surgeon at the hospital, aren't you?
--> '''Sakura:''' Huh? Uh, yeah, he's my father.
--> '''Kushina:''' I thought as much. [[LampshadeHanging There aren't that many people in Konoha Town with pink hair]].

!!Sai
A student of Konoha High School with a great interest in art. Later becomes Ino's love interest.
* {{Adorkable}}: In Chapter 68, toward Ino when she's flirtatiously teasing him [[spoiler:right before their FirstKiss]].
* BerserkButton: Don't desecrate his artwork. He pulverizes four bullies who do it out of spite, almost killing one before Kakashi intervenes in the nick of time.
** [[spoiler:Following his RelationshipUpgrade with Ino, don't harm her. Period. He sees her as a one-of-a-kind work of art, and if you defile her in any way, Sai will ''brutalize'' you, as Aoi found out when he attempted to rape Ino]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's quite a pleasant and polite guy, and will paint portraits of you if you ask him. Just don't [[BerserkButton destroy his artwork]].
* {{Bishonen}}: How Ino perceives him during their first meeting.
--> '''Hinata:''' ''(watching Sai paint a colorful portrait)'' Such beauty...
--> '''Ino:''' Y-yeah. ''(blushing)'' And that painting's really nice too...
* DeadpanSnarker: He's definitely capable. Witness his response to a thug who he's just locked inside a dumpster.
--> '''Thug:''' Wait--what the--OW, OW, OWWW! C'mon, man, there are rats in this thing!
--> '''Sai:''' Then you'll fit right in.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: He developed feelings for Ino around the time of the Uchiha Zaibatsu arc. [[spoiler:Culminated in them becoming a couple later]].
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Of course.

!!Hozuki Suigetsu
A local troublemaker who butts heads with Naruto from their first meeting in Chapter 7.
* BoisterousWeakling: He can talk a big game, sure, but he's yet to actually ''win'' a fight against a named opponent.
* {{Delinquents}}: He's treated as one, given that he's been arrested previously for shoplifting and has gotten into trouble for illegal vending of concession items, plus his repeated antagonism of Naruto.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Criminal Douchebags Have Standards]]: Suigetsu's got a criminal record for shoplifting and is an opportunist who'll take advantage of Naruto's scheduled fight with Kiba to make a buck off the event, and he'll throw baseballs at Naruto just to show he can...but he takes vocal exception [[spoiler:when Aoi batters Ino bloody]]. He's also averse to the idea of drug use, which is why he quit Arashi's gang in his back-story.
* FiveFingerDiscount: What Detective Ibiki once busted him for.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Yes, he's abrasive, arrogant, selfish, out to make a quick buck at the expense of others, and a former street thug. The others in the cast tolerate him due to his having inside knowledge in the workings of the local gangs, and also because, at his best, he's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* HiddenDepths: In Chapter 107, Suigetsu shows a surprising amount of knowledge concerning the process of sugar production, something he credits to the fact that his father used to work in a food-processing plant. He also has a fairly good idea that successful businesses offer things their competitors don't have, advice he shares with Hanabi for her lemonade stand.
* {{Irony}}: At one point, he declares that he hates cops, due to them behaving in what he sees as a hypocritical manner, citing Ibiki's relationship with Idate as an example. [[spoiler:In the DistantFinale, Suigetsu has become a cop himself]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The heart of gold is buried ''really'' deep, but it's there. It especially shows up in Chapter 107.
* NoRespectGuy: Considering his family history and his own JerkAss tendencies, Suigetsu doesn't get a lot of respect from anyone. Jugo's quite possibly the only person so far who ''doesn't'' put him down, due to both of them being friends for years and having gone through delinquency together, and even then Jugo still fires the occasional verbal pot-shot at him.
* NotAMorningPerson: He's not the early bird that catches the worm, as Chapter 44 shows.
--> '''Jugo:''' C'mon, would you wake up already?
--> '''Suigetsu:''' ''(sleepily)'' Mmm...lay off already, Jugo, I'm dreaming about [[HotTeacher Mei-sensei]]...
* OddFriendship: With Hinata, somewhat. They don't interact that often, and have only had two moments where they have direct contact with each other, but she's the only one he's never tried to insult or pull pranks on, and she in turn doesn't put him down or insult him.
* OpportunisticBastard: Kiba makes his challenge to fight Naruto. What does Suigetsu do? He sells concession items to anyone who's coming to watch the bout.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Jugo's blue.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Wise Guy to Jugo's Straight Man.
* TheTrickster: He tries to pull this on Naruto on two different occasions. Key word: ''tries''. The first time, he tries to get away with hitting Naruto with a baseball during batting practice, only for Naruto to knock it right into his balls; the second time, he attempts to trick Naruto into drinking a bottle of pee disguised as soda, only for Naruto to force-feed ''him'' the uric drink.

!!Tenbin Jugo
Suigetsu's best friend at Konoha High School.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: He's strong and tough enough to give opponents a hell of a fight. At the same time, he's always polite, humble, and ready to help a friend in need.
* DeadpanSnarker: Suigetsu's his usual target.
* {{Delinquents}}: Used to be one, alongside Suigetsu. Given his current disposition, he hasn't engaged in any deviant behavior in a while, though he still hangs out with Suigetsu, who's still carrying on with questionable antics.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Delinquents Have Standards]]: He broke ranks with Arashi's gang, alongside Suigetsu, when the gang started using drugs.
--> '''Suigetsu:''' Jugo didn't need a lot of convincing to split with me.
* FaceOfAThug: According to Akamaru's doggy evaluation. But he's one of the nicer guys in the supporting cast.
* FiveFingerDiscount: According to his own testimony, Jugo used to shoplift and pick pockets with Suigetsu.
* MellowFellow: Usually pretty relaxed and calm.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's not revealed to have a surname; here, he's given the surname Tenbin, which is derived from his canon nickname "Tenbin no Jugo" ("Jugo of the Scales").
* OnlyFriend: To Suigetsu, for all the time they've known each other.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Suigetsu's red.
* SpiritedCompetitor: He sees Naruto as a WorthyOpponent during the Uchiha Zaibatsu tournament.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The Straight Man to Suigetsu's Wise Guy.

!!Aburame Shino
A student at Konoha High School, whose father works in telecommunications. He shares Spanish class with Ino and has a liking for comic books and (like in canon) bug collecting.
* CombatPragmatist: How does he defeat Kiba during their qualifier fight in Sasuke's tournament? He evades Kiba's attacks, then grabs Kiba in a submission hold and threatens to break his arm if Kiba doesn't yield.
* CoolShades
* CreepyGood: He collects bugs, he lurks around in trees to such an extent that you won't even know he's above you unless he speaks, and he doesn't talk much (albeit he does talk more here than in canon). Despite this, he's one of the good guys.
* OddFriendship: With Naruto.
* TheQuietOne: Although this story makes him a bit more talkative and social than his canon-series counterpart.
* SunglassesAtNight

!!Inuzuka Kiba
A student at Konoha High School, and the son of police chief Inuzuka Tsume and younger brother of Inuzuka Hana. He's got his dog Akamaru, like in canon (though here Akamaru is a normal dog).
* ActionPet: He's got Akamaru, natch.
* AttackAttackAttack: His main fighting strategy. However, the two times he's shown fighting against a named opponent, that strategy gets defeated--Naruto wins via DeadlyDodging, while [[CombatPragmatist Shino]] puts him in a submission hold and threatens to break his arm if he doesn't yield.
* BerserkButton: Kiba ''is'' Akamaru's button--if you hurt his master, prepare to be bitten.
* BigFriendlyDog: Akamaru again.
* BoisterousBruiser
* CanineCompanion: Akamaru is this for Kiba, of course.
* DisappearedDad: We don't hear anything about Kiba's father in the main story. The seventh Gaiden eventually explains that he ran out on the family, with Tsume hinting that Mr. Inuzuka may have been unfaithful.
* HeroesLoveDogs: Kiba definitely cares for Akamaru's well-being, and the feeling is mutual.
* HopelessSuitor: Was this for Hinata.
* HotBlooded
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Among Naruto's school-friends, Kiba is the last to find out about the other boy's Kyuushingai past. He expresses dismay when Sasuke points this out to him.

!!Rock Lee
One of Neji's classmates in his senior year, and one of his most recurring companions together with Tenten. Lee is energetic and always spouting statements having to do with "youthfulness."
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Like his canon-series counterpart, he initially harbors feelings for Sakura. Sakura herself is quite repulsed at the idea, though she at least manages not to display said displeasure too openly, and she's not above taking advantage of Lee's crush to get out of having to accept a date-offer from Naruto (this being before her CharacterDevelopment).
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yes, he makes cringe-worthy, if overly enthusiastic, declarations about the merits of youth. Yes, he [[CloudCuckoolander acts with hot-blooded acceptance, including literal fire in his eyes]], toward Hanabi's declaration of him being her "knight in green armor." And yes, he can ''definitely'' give you a CurbStompBattle once he's properly motivated, as two convenience-store robbers find out to their agony.
* BigOlEyebrows: Natch. Both Naruto and Ino have pointed them out, much to Lee's displeasure.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Although in a slightly more realistic contrast to his canon counterpart, it takes a cup and then a bottle of wine to get him hammered. This trait is also the subject of a NoodleIncident that took place during an end-of-school-year party he attended, where he somehow mistook bourbon for apple juice.
* CovertPervert: Surprisingly so, especially when he [[MistakenForGay mistakes Sakura and Ino for a lesbian couple]] and has a ''very'' vivid image of...[[GirlOnGirlIsHot related stuff]].
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Lee is mainly a source of comic relief, especially after he meets and is occasionally paired with Hanabi. That being said, his only fight scene so far shows him using the DynamicEntry and RapidFireFisticuffs to brutally put down two robbers with little stress to himself.
* DrunkenMaster: As Chojuro found out to his dismay, Lee's fighting gets...''unpredictable'' when he's hammered.
* EmotionalBruiser: Yes, he's strong as a fighter. No, he's not afraid to wear his emotions on his sleeve.
* SarcasmBlind
* ShipperOnDeck: For Neji and Tenten.
* SpannerInTheWorks: If not for Lee's presence at the Hyuga mansion at the time of Chojuro's break-in, Chojuro and his gang would have successfully been able to rob the place.

!!Tamura Tenten
One of Neji's classmates in his senior year, and one of his most recurring companions together with Lee.
* ActionGirl: More so than most of the other girls in the cast, in fact.
* AscendedExtra: She was pretty much a SatelliteCharacter in the canon series. Here, she gets significantly more importance with her backstory tying in to the events of the 365 days. [[spoiler:Specifically, her parents were killed during a botched bombing pulled off by Fuu, and Tenten herself was later rescued from a life of homelessness by Killer Bee]].
* AttackAttackAttack: Her preferred combat style, though she's certainly capable of defense. However, it gets deconstructed during her fight with Shikamaru in Sasuke's tournament.
* BadassBiker
* BikerBabe
* BloodKnight: She's always willing to fight, as it's a form of training for her.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Being orphaned during the 365 days' chaos, and subsequently having no stable abode due to having no other living relatives, has made Tenten very bitter two years later]].
* CarryABigStick: Tenten carries ''[[DualWielding two]]'' morning-star clubs to her fight with Naruto in Chapter 16.
* CoolBike: She owns a Harley-Davidson.
* MinorLivingAlone: Not in the current timeline, as she's 18 years old and therefore at the age of consent, but for the two years in between the end of the 365 days and the start of the main story, by virtue of having no living relatives on either side of her family [[spoiler:and her parents, in particular, being killed during the 365 days]].
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, her surname (assuming she even has one) has never been revealed. Here, she's given the surname Tamura, which is derived from the name of her Japanese voice actress in the anime.
* OdangoHair: Of course. She's even referred to as "Panda-girl" by the desk manager at her apartment building because of it.
* OneNoteCook: By her own admission, the only thing she's good at making that actually requires the use of a stove is French toast.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler:Tenten's parents died in an assault by the Kyuushingai during the 365 days]].
* PluckyGirl: Even if her opponent is a Kyuushingai, she will not concede defeat.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Tenten might engage in street fights, train very hard, and hang out at bars, but she usually prefers wearing skirts instead of jeans.

!!Nara Shikamaru
One of Naruto's schoolmates, he is also close friends with Ino and Choji.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Just like in canon. As a prime example, he's able to point out flaws in Tenten's defense [[CovertPervert while groping her private parts]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: See what happened to Fubuki and her Ice-Eyes Gang when they broke in his house in chapter 83. [[ToThePain It wasn't pretty]]. They shouldn't have mentioned Aoi sent them...
* CovertPervert: As proven during his fight with Tenten. He also openly sings (alongside Choji) about how TheInternetIsForPorn.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: We know from the canon series that Shikamaru's this. How does it apply in this universe? Well, he's still as lazy as ever, describes everything as "troublesome," and prefers watching clouds to buying ''his own lunch'' at school...yet he was able to point out flaws in Tenten's defense even after taking the opportunity to [[CovertPervert grope her naughty bits]] during their fight in Chapter 24, and knocked Aoi unconscious with [[OneHitKO one punch]] in Chapter 27.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly toward Ino's antics or Choji's appetite.
* NotAMorningPerson: As demonstrated in Chapter 44--he's perfectly willing to skip out on a mandatory school field trip in order to get a few extra minutes of sleep. Of course, Ino and Choji don't let him have that luxury.

!!Akimichi Choji
One of Shikamaru's and Ino's friends, he later becomes acquainted with Naruto. His family owns a meat shop.
* {{Acrofatic}}: Just like his canon counterpart, despite being big on the bulk, he's still fast enough to keep up with Shikamaru during their fight in Sasuke's tournament.
* BerserkButton: [[LostFoodGrievance Causing him to drop his food, even by accident]]. Ironically, calling him fat in this universe ''doesn't'' have quite the same effect (though he's not above punching Naruto for it).
** Also, don't harm his friends or family. [[spoiler:When one of Kazuma's Flame-heart Posse members stabbed Choza (non-fatally), Choji went on a rampage]].
* BigEater: Like his canon counterpart, of course. Sasuke [[FoodAsBribe plays on this]] to convince him to fight Shikamaru in their qualifier match for the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational Tournament.
* IAmBigBoned: His insistence when Naruto lays into him with the "fat" insults during their first meeting.

!!Haku
A third-year student alongside Sai, who also happens to be a member of Arashi's Purple Storm gang, albeit apparently unwillingly.
* AdaptationalWimp: In canon, he was able to totally overpower Naruto and Sasuke during their second confrontation in the Land of Waves arc, and was skilled enough with needles to put Zabuza in a death-like state that briefly fooled even Kakashi. Here, he's a massive pushover who's intimidated by Arashi.
* BadLiar: When he's sent out by Arashi to peddle Gold Sand, Haku quickly outs himself as this--when Fuu sees the pills and asks what they are, he claims they're nothing (she's not fooled). Then, when two of Arashi's gang members--who were following Haku to make sure he'd sell the pills--decide to move in, Haku claims he's just trying to make a deal with Fuu and Tenten concerning the pills; however, the gangsters aren't fooled at his failed bluff.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Natch. He was actually bullied for it.
* ExtremeDoormat
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* TheQuietOne: Hand-in-hand with his ExtremeDoormat status.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Taken UpToEleven when Sakura and Ino first meet him, despite the fact that he's quite obviously wearing ''the boys' school uniform''.
--> '''Sakura and Ino:''' YOU LOOK SO MUCH PRETTIER THAN US!

!!Arashi
A senior-year student who's also the leader of the Purple Storm gang. He's got a history with Haku, Suigetsu and Jugo.
* {{Blackmail}}: Coerces Haku into becoming a drug pusher with the threat of removing his protection of Haku from the bullying he used to endure if he refuses.
* TheBully: The second one seen at Konoha High, after Aoi.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Komatsu Karui
A student in Hinata's Music class. She's introduced in Chapter 88, performing alongside Hinata in the school's music recital. It's later revealed that she takes part in underground oil wrestling.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In canon, she's a HotBlooded FieryRedhead who acts like a textbook {{Tsundere}}; here, she's...not. The author's post-chapter commentary indicates that this is deliberate.
* CulturedBadass: She's been trained to play the violin, and is very skilled at it. She's also a capable fighter when it comes to oil wrestling.
* DaddysGirl: Even though her father walked out on her and her mother five years earlier, Karui is still quite fond of him. Part of it comes from her understanding ''why'' he left--because he couldn't deal with her mother's overbearing attitude.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead
* ElegantClassicalMusician: She's skilled at the violin...but she ''hates'' it because it's only to fulfill [[EducationMama her mother's wishes]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: After getting hit in the back of the head once during a brief skirmish with Naruto, she wisely opts out of continuing.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Her surname comes from the name of her voice actress.
* ProWrestlingIsReal: Well, oil wrestling in her case. It's meant to be a source of entertainment for the audience, but Karui herself is really going all-out against her opponent the one time we see her in action.
* TheQuietOne: According to Hinata's observation, Karui doesn't talk much, but she expresses herself through her music.
* TheResenter: Toward her mother, for forcing Karui to take up music so as to live out her own failed dreams through her daughter.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Karui's dark skin and red hair come directly from her father, but she takes her amber eyes from her mother. According to the post-chapter notes in the eighteenth Gaiden, [[RelatedInTheAdaptation Banna was chosen to be Karui's father in this story's universe]] specifically because both of them are dark-skinned redheads; where Amayo's eyes are concerned, they're only slightly darker than Karui's (her canon counterpart's picture on the ''Naruto'' Wiki page has eyes that appear hazel, but are described as simply brown), with the explanation being that Karui inherited the amber eyes from one of her maternal grandparents and that the eye-color mostly skipped Amayo, whose eye color is less pronounced as a result.
* WellDoneSonGuy: It's revealed she has this issue with [[EducationMama her mother]].

!!Ozaki Haruna
A student of Konoha High School who first shows up during the Tribunal arc, along with her friends (listed below) to hassle Sakura over comments the latter's father has made at a town hall meeting held to discuss the presence of the Kyuushingai in the area.
* AcademicAthlete: The Gaiden chapters reveal her to be the school's top track star. [[spoiler:And by the DistantFinale, she's smart enough to have become a cop]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: Well, she's not part of this story's RoguesGallery by any means, but her canon self was definitely not [[spoiler:criminally-minded enough to cause damage to a hated character's personal property]]. By the time of the Gaiden chapters, though, [[CharacterDevelopment she gets a little better]].
* AscendedExtra: Kind of. In the canon series' anime, Haruna was a filler character who was the daimyo of the Land of Vegetables and gave Naruto support in her arc. Here, she's still a minor character, but one who gets quite a bit of attention (relative to other minor characters) and some quiet CharacterDevelopment, more so in the Gaiden chapters.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: She has this in common with her best friend Emiru.
* CovertPervert: One Gaiden chapter shows her reading a copy of the ''Icha-Icha'' book series alone in her room, even having a nose-bleed on reading one particularly racy story, and then trying to hide the book from her father when he comes knocking. She's even willing to blackmail Kagari and Mahiru into securing a copy of the book for her, in exchange for her keeping silent about their peeping habits.
* EveryoneHasStandards: She's something of a jerk, yes, and definitely holds contempt for Sakura (which, to be fair, stems from Sakura's own past bitchiness), but in the Gaiden chapters, the first thing she does on seeing an injured Naruto is to run over and help him get to the hospital. When her father, who ''really'' doesn't approve of Naruto following the latter's revelation as a Kyuushingai, asks Haruna why she did that, Haruna (who's still grappling with finding an answer to that question herself) cites the Golden Rule of doing to others what she would want done for herself.
* KidsAreCruel / TeensAreMonsters: She was perfectly willing to stand by and mock Sakura while her guy friends were about to assault the pink-haired girl, except Sasuke showed up right at that point. [[spoiler:Then Emiru and Haruna went further and vandalized Sakura's house and her dad's car]].
* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: After being brought in for questioning by Ibiki and Iruka following the confrontation with Sakura [[spoiler:and subsequent vandalism of her house]], Haruna angrily declares that her father will sue the police for what they've done, and indeed when her dad shows up at the police station he's exceptionally indignant at the idea that his daughter could be accused of such misconduct...only to be appropriately embarrassed when shown the evidence of her guilt not long after.
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale: [[spoiler:Emiru and Haruna spray-paint hate messages on the front of the Haruno family house and trash Dr. Haruno's car. Kagari and Mahiru ''were'' supposed to take part, but they chickened out at the last minute]].
* NamedbyTheAdaptation: Haruna is given the surname Ozaki in this story.
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Haruna holds a pretty strong grudge against Sakura, one that lasts even after her CharacterDevelopment begins, due to Sakura's previous AcademicAlphaBitch behavior. Dr. Haruno's comments in support of the Kyuushingai simply gave Haruna and company a convenient excuse to accost Sakura and later vandalize the Haruno family's property]].

!!Kagari, Mahiru, and Emiru
Haruna's friends who first show up alongside her during the Tribunal arc.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played straight with Emiru, who was a very minor character but was still friendly to Naruto. Concerning the boys, Kagari was already an Amegakure-affiliated villain in the canon series and the filler arc that featured Aoi, and while we don't know Mahiru's canon morality, he was definitely an enemy of Kakashi and Minato as revealed in their back-story.
* AllMenArePerverts: One Gaiden chapter reveals that, at some point, Kagari and Mahiru tried boring a hole into a wall of the girls' shower-room to facilitate peeping. Haruna uses this against them as blackmail, [[HypocriticalHumor by making them secure a copy of a dirty book for her]] in exchange for her not telling their mothers about that incident.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: Emiru shares this with her best friend Haruna.
* TheBully: At least one of the boys was willing to get physical with Sakura over her father's comments. [[spoiler:The girls took it a step further]].
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:In the original series, Emiru (there a very minor character) is quite alive and well. Here, she gets murdered by the Spiral Reaper]].
* KidsAreCruel / TeensAreMonsters: They were perfectly willing to assault Sakura, except Sasuke showed up right at that point. [[spoiler:Emiru and Haruna went further and vandalized Sakura's house and her dad's car]].
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale: [[spoiler:Emiru works with Haruna to spray-paint hate messages on the front of the Haruno family house and trash Dr. Haruno's car. Kagari and Mahiru ''were'' supposed to take part, but they chickened out at the last minute]].
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Another thing Emiru has in common with Haruna, regarding Sakura]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha High School - Faculty and Staff]]
A list of the characters who serve as members of faculty or staff at Konoha High School.

!!Hatake Kakashi
A teacher in Konoha High School's Math department.
* TheAllegedCar: He has a pick-up truck that gives him no end of grief just to get ''started'' during the Underground Fists arc.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Two examples. The first time, he readily aided Rin in seeking protection from her abusive ex-boyfriend [[spoiler:Hidan]]; and the second time, he drove off to rescue Karui the moment he saw Yura driving away with her as an unwilling passenger.
* AssShove: Yep, he used the Thousand Years of Pain [[spoiler:on Hidan. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard With Hidan's own knife]]]].
* BadassBookworm: He is a math teacher, remember.
* BadassTeacher: During the Underground Fists arc, where, despite not quite having as big a role as Naruto, he's still the one to fight the arc's baddie, Yura.
* BerserkButton: [[PapaWolf Endangering his students in any way]], as proven when he gave Yura a beat-down for assaulting Karui. Not even his longtime friend Rin is safe from the effect of this, as Kakashi [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness came to an arranged meeting early]] and gave her a sharp dressing-down for potentially exposing Naruto's Kyuushingai past to the public.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Reads dirty books? Check. Eccentric enough to wear a dust-mask 24/7? Check. Habitually eavesdropping on other people's conversations? Check. Well-respected by his students for being a CoolTeacher? CHECK.
* CombatPragmatist: See AssShove.
* CoolMask: Although in this story it's a dust-mask instead of a ninja mask.
* CoolTeacher: He's easily one of the most laid-back members of the faculty, but he still has the respect of the students. He also takes Naruto being a Kyuushingai in stride, when he finds out the truth.
* CovertPervert: Although he fails at the "covert" part following a SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.
--> '''Choji:''' Oi, Kakashi-sensei, what's that book you've got there?\\
'''Kakashi:''' Oh, this? Just a little bit of advanced literature I brought from home. Not a porno, nope, not at all...
* DemotedToExtra: Aside from giving a few much-needed pep talks here and there, his only real role in this story is as one of the recurring teacher characters. He does get a DayInTheLimelight during Rin's character arc, however, and then gets a bigger role in Karui's arc.
* HiddenDepths: So he's a perverted teacher who reads dirty books and gets into verbal spats with Kurenai at every opportunity, and he's quirky enough to constantly wear a dust-mask that covers the lower half of his face despite clearly not needing it...but it's eventually revealed that he sees himself as a FailureHero for not being able to do anything about [[spoiler:Rin's abuse at the hands of her boyfriend]]. The one time he expresses this, though, Rin has to tell him not to blame himself, since there was no way he could have known about it.
* ItsNotPornItsArt: Makes this claim about the ''Icha Icha'' book series that he loves so much. Nobody else is falling for it.
* LovableSexManiac: He's absolutely ''gleeful'' when noting that the skirts worn by this year's batch of schoolgirls are shorter than before, and Rin has to caution him that if he ever tries to peep on her in the bathroom, [[GroinAttack he'll wake up without his balls the next morning]]. Yet he's a good source of advice for his students, and Rin herself acknowledges that, in a serious pinch, there's nobody she trusts more than Kakashi.
* NoMouth: Given that he's never shown to take off his dust-mask, not unlike his canon counterpart. It gets to the point that when he's going to drink a soda, he simply sticks the straw underneath his mask.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Yes, it's easy to dismiss him as a perverted lech who insists [[ItsNotPornItsArt his porn books are works of art]], watches his female students' clingy clothing, and desires to see girls mud-wrestling, but [[BerserkButton seriously mess with his students]] and he'll drop the facade fast and give you the beating of your existence.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In Chapter 97, Kakashi makes an appointment to meet with Rin at Burger Castle at 2:00...and next chapter, he shows up ''early''. The reason? He wants to talk with her about how her previous news broadcast concerning the presence of the Kyuushingai in Konoha Town has put Naruto in danger of exposure, something Kakashi is not happy about.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* SeriousBusiness: ''Icha Icha''. Don't ruin one of those books, or else it's a [[AssShove Thousand Years of Pain]] [[spoiler:(he plainly admitted he knifed Hidan there instead of the back because when Hidan had tried to kill him the knife cut the ''Icha Icha'' book he kept inside his jacket)]].
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: With Kurenai, most usually. He also has a brief moment with Burger Castle waitress Ayame in Chapter 98.
--> '''Kakashi:''' Nothing for me today, thanks. Wouldn't want you to poison me.
--> '''Ayame:''' Humph! Like YOU would be worth wasting good poison on.

!!Terumi Mei
Naruto's English teacher, and also the form teacher for Neji, Lee and Tenten.
* AdaptationalWimp: In this story, she's not a fighter, so she's easily overwhelmed by Aoi's gang and taken hostage by Kimimaro's thugs on separate occasions. In canon, she ''is'' a fighter, specifically being the fifth Mizukage, possessing two bloodline abilities, and quite easily fended off an assault from Sasuke.
* CovertPervert: She's accused of being this. In one chapter, she catches Sai and Ino passing notes to each other and demands that Sai read one of the notes out loud. Turns out the notes are pertaining to Sai's incredible ability to sketch Ino in a realistic manner; Sai then accuses Mei of having expected the notes to be more...explicit in nature, causing the rest of the class to snicker and Mei to blush profusely.
* HeroesWantRedheads
* HotTeacher: Naruto gets caught daydreaming about her in class (and winds up with a RagingStiffie because of this, much to his humiliation and the other teachers' amusement when Mei relates the story later).
* LustObject: For all the boys at Konoha High. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it almost got her gang-raped by Aoi and his cronies]].
* MeaningfulName: As pointed out in her character-bio section for the canon series on this wiki, her name means "shining beauty." In this universe, she's highly lusted after by the male student populace.
* MsFanservice

!!Yuhi Kurenai
Naruto's history teacher. She also tends to butt heads with Kakashi.
* TheConfidant: Mei takes her on as this in the forty-fifth Gaiden.
* HotTeacher: Consider [[FunbagAirbag the way]] Naruto first met her.
* MustHaveCaffeine: In the forty-fifth Gaiden, she complains about how Mei is in ''her'' house, drinking ''her'' coffee, instead of being at her own house at that time of night. Part of Kurenai's displeasure comes from the fact that Mei showed up drunk on her doorstep, and the coffee is to help her regain some sobriety.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite her seeming emotionally cool attitude, she knows how to keep order among the students while still being fair. When Ino and Choji want to kill Naruto over [[LostFoodGrievance a spilled pudding cup and a spilled burger, respectively]], Kurenai instructs Naruto to repay Choji for the burger and then advises Ino to just let the pudding issue drop (especially since it wasn't even Ino's pudding to begin with, but Naruto's).
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: With Kakashi.
* SternTeacher

!!Shiranui Genma
The boys' Physical Education teacher.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Of all the named teachers, he's the last one to learn about Naruto being a Kyuushingai. It's pointed out that this is because he's had the least interaction with Naruto out of the lot of them.
* SternTeacher: As revealed in Chapter 90, when he confronts Naruto over disregarding Danzo's instructions for students who don't have any exams during certain times in the exam period.

!!Mitarashi Anko
The girls' Physical Education teacher.
* AdaptationalWimp: Kotetsu is able to intimidate her by grabbing and squeezing her arm, and Anko puts up almost no resistance beyond verbal protests. If it was Anko's canon self, Kotetsu would've gotten some very bloody retribution just for trying that stunt.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: When Danzo outlines Naruto's destructive past from Uzushio High School, Anko is ''extremely'' interested.
--> '''Anko:''' Ahh...a real bad boy, huh?
* ImprobableAimingSkills: She's capable of throwing a volleyball with enough skill to make the ball bounce off Sakura's head and hit Ino in the face, if only to stop the girls from squabbling.
* SternTeacher: Threatens to make her students run twenty laps around the soccer field for misbehavior.

!!Shimura Danzo
The principal of Konoha High School.
* AdaptationalHeroism: He still has traits of jerkassery, yes, but he's ''way'' more reasonable than his canon counterpart. This includes being willing to listen to other points of view on a given subject, and being willing to admit when he's wrong if he's shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is in fact wrong.
* DeanBitterman: High school variant, and largely directed at Naruto. Danzo gives tacit approval to Neji's efforts to get Naruto suspended or expelled, and openly informs the faculty of the reason behind Naruto's transfer from Uzushio High School and then asks them to watch for and report any infractions Naruto might commit. Notably, he's not shown to behave this way toward any other students at Konoha High, not even Suigetsu, who actually ''does'' have a criminal record.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Given that Naruto caused quite a bit of trouble at his previous school, not to mention the fact that he's a Kyuushingai, Danzo's sanction of efforts to get the blond boy out of Konoha High are at least understandable. Part of Danzo's mandate as principal is to ensure the safety of his students, after all.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He's a ''Shadow Fox'' fan, just like most of the town's populace.
* TookALevelInKindness: It happens gradually and over several arcs, but yes, he does.

!!Vice-Principal Yamato Tenzou
The vice-principal of Konoha High School, he becomes acting principal during the Konoha Gangs Arc.
* AdaptationalVillainy: He shows a certain amount of hostility to the idea of Naruto continuing on at Konoha High, once he finds out about Naruto being a Kyuushingai, and openly protests against Danzo's decision not to expel Naruto for it. This is in contrast to his canon self, who, while a SternTeacher, nevertheless helps Naruto's development greatly. [[spoiler:This is also without taking the Spiral Reaper persona into account]].
* DeanBitterman: While Danzo is hospitalized, he continues his principal's efforts to get Naruto kicked out.
* RememberTheNewGuy: His first appearance is in Chapter 79, but everybody at Konoha High School already knows who he is. Granted, it's stated in-universe that he hardly ever comes out of his office or mingles with the rest of the school populace.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Hyuga Corporation]]
The Hyuga Corporation is one of two [[MegaCorp mega-corporations]] resident in Konoha Town, and is the rival of the Uchiha Zaibatsu, the other mega-corporation. Character entries in this folder relate to its heir, Hyuga Hinata, her father and the company CEO, Hyuga Hiashi, and the rest of their family and employees.

!!Hyuga Hinata
The older daughter of Hyuga Corp CEO Hyuga Hiashi, older sister of Hanabi, and cousin of Neji. She develops a crush on Naruto from the first time she sees him, not unlike her canon counterpart.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Has this by the time of the twenty-third Gaiden, by virtue of being approachable by anyone and because she's just that nice a person.
--> To the residents of Konoha Town, she was ''the'' shining jewel in the city's crown.
* AccidentalPervert: The OutdoorBathPeeping scene with her and Yugito starts when Hinata, while looking around Yugito's hotel suite to try and find her, steps out onto the outdoor patio and discovers the older woman in an artificial WaterfallShower...and then spends the next few moments checking out Yugito's goods while comparing them to what she herself has. A justified example, as [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Yugito]] later admits to Itachi that she herself pulled the WaterfallShower stunt on purpose to try and shock Hinata's sense of genteelness.
* ActionGirl: Unlike Sakura, Ino and Tenten, she didn't start out this way at first. Training under Yugito's tutelage changed that.
* {{Adorkable}}: At first, especially when it comes to Naruto.
* BadassAdorable: Once she learns how to fight. She still doesn't lose her sweet demeanor.
* BerserkButton: It doesn't come up often, but the subject of her not having [[MissingMom her mother]] around is still pretty painful for her even years after the fact; trivializing her sense of loss will result in her breaking the offender's jaw. [[spoiler:Matsuri pushes this button ''twice,'' the second time by desecrating Lady Hyuga's portrait out of sheer spite; Sasuke has to physically stop Hinata from attacking Matsuri at that point]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Without a doubt, Hinata is one of the nicest, sweetest, most polite characters in the story. But aggravate her enough, and she'll verbally rip you a new one ''and'' give you an ArmorPiercingSlap on top of it.
** BewareTheQuietOnes: Following her [[TookALevelInBadass leveling up]], if you insist on being an ass, she'll hand you ''yours''.
* BigEater: Hinted at in Chapter 41, as she orders slightly more than the rest of the gang does when they're eating at Burger Castle. She orders four separate meal items, while the others order up to two or three solo items or single meal combos.
--> '''Sai:''' Well, now, looks like you've got an appetite!
--> '''Hinata:''' Uh, well, not really...
* BigSisterInstinct: When it comes to her sister Hanabi, Hinata will do all she can to protect her. [[spoiler:Including fighting Yagura and Matsuri in separate duels]].
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The Gentle Girl to Naruto's Brooding Boy.
* CombatPragmatist: After she learns how to fight. For her, using a kitchen's food ingredients and utensils as projectiles and [[GroinAttack kicking below the belt]] are perfectly legitimate tactics.
* CovertPervert: Aside from the OutdoorBathPeeping moment in Chapter 43 where she spends a good few minutes checking out Yugito while the latter's in the WaterfallShower, there's the fact that she seems to know that the ''Icha Icha'' book series is pornographic--and that's ''before'' the aforementioned scene with Yugito. The twenty-third Gaiden, set during her twenty-third birthday, shows her out at dinner with Naruto, and while they're waiting for their order, she engages in FootsieUnderTheTable as a way of teasing him. [[spoiler:The same Gaiden reveals her to be into bondage play, specifically as a submissive]].
* DanceBattler: Once she starts training as a fighter under Yugito, Hinata incorporates her previous dancing experience into her fighting movements.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Played with, in that she's not dating Naruto at the time Hiashi expresses his disapproval of the boy; rather, she has a romantic crush on Naruto and has already confessed to him, but is biding time while both of them get used to the idea of being around each other. Of course, Hiashi's objection comes from Naruto's Kyuushingai past and his ([[BrilliantButLazy perceived]]) penchant for disregarding schoolwork.
* ElegantClassicalMusician: She's an accomplished concert pianist by the time the twenty-third Gaiden takes place. Even before then, in Chapter 88 of the main story, she's already quite skilled on the piano.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Much like her canon counterpart, she nursed a crush on Naruto.
* GirlyBruiser: Very much so.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: She wears a purple evening dress to attend the scheduled competition match between Naruto (representing the Uchiha Zaibatsu) and Neji (representing Hyuga Corp) in Chapter 143, with matching open-toed high-heeled pumps. In addition, a bit of [[http://kyuushinartist.deviantart.com/art/Kitsune-no-Ken-variant-art-without-story-title-544842138 variant-cover artwork]] done on the author's [=DeviantArt=] account shows Hinata in a purple dress.
* GrewASpine: The very first sign of her CharacterDevelopment is when she stands up to both Hiashi and Neji after they initially sought to keep her away from Naruto.
* ImprovisedWeaponUser: She makes use of spoons and a bowl of fruit as projectiles and [[DualWielding two frying pans]] as melee weapons in Chapter 180 [[spoiler:while fighting Yagura]].
* LonelyRichKid: According to her own description in Chapter 51.
--> '''Hinata:''' I didn't have any real friends up to that time...all I knew was a routine of school, home, extracurricular activities, and that's about it. Being the daughter of a highly-placed man like my father, that always made me feel like I was on some kind of pedestal. A pedestal I didn't want to be on...
* MissingMom: Her mother died in a car accident several years earlier.
* MsFanservice: While swimming in the pool aboard aboard the ''Mizukage'' liner, Hinata wears a one-piece swim-suit that's nonetheless quite form-fitting, emphasizing her breasts in particular, and also allowing a good view of how toned her legs are. In a later scene, while taking a shower, she takes a moment to check out just how toned her whole body has become thanks to her training with Yugito, and the narrative goes into a rather detailed description of how the soap and water are running down her curves, including her breasts.
* NervesOfSteel: [[spoiler:Using the DynamicEntry on [[TheDreaded Yagura]]? Yeah, she's brave]].
* NiceGirl: A lot of people who know her or have met her have commented on it.
--> '''Itachi:''' She's got a kind heart, that one.
* OddFriendship: With Sasuke, considering that their fathers are business rivals and also the fact that their canon counterparts had practically no direct interaction with each other. Also with Suigetsu, to a lesser degree; they've had only two scenes where they directly interact with each other, but she's not put off by his delinquent past and he doesn't try to insult or play pranks on her (not even Ino and Sakura have escaped that).
* ProperLady: Respectful to all, and uses honorifics wherever appropriate.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Ino's red.
* ShipperOnDeck: She expresses a desire to be the maid of honor at Itachi's and Yugito's wedding, a statement that briefly throws Yugito off-balance. [[spoiler:In the seventh Gaiden, she's a bridesmaid during said wedding]].
* ShrinkingViolet: During her first few appearances. She's becoming [[CharacterDevelopment less and less of this]] over time, though, made most apparent when she stands up to Hiashi and Neji in Chapter 17.
* SilkHidingSteel: If her calling-out of Minato for his crappy fathering skills is any indication. Or her kicking the crap out of three street toughs all by herself after having previously and politely asked them not to bother her or her friends. [[spoiler:Or her slapping Kira in the face for outing Naruto and Yugito as Kyuushingai]]. The thirtieth Gaiden later indicates that she got it from her late mother Hiroko.
--> '''Minato:''' You look soft and weak, but behind that facade is a fire that will burn the unwary.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She's one of only two named female students at Konoha High who aren't trying to get with the handsome "bad boy" Sasuke (the other being Tenten), instead being drawn to Naruto because of his consideration for people's feelings. This was especially pronounced when, after accidentally bumping into her, Naruto helped to pick up her books and then refrained from reading her diary despite having a clear opportunity to do so, simply because she asked him not to.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: How she saw herself at first, regarding Naruto, as she admitted in her diary prior to actually meeting him; she'd previously seen him and started developing a crush on him, but couldn't adequately explain why that was. Then, of course, she got to know him better.
* SpoiledSweet: She may be a child of one of the richest people in town, but she's not stuck-up or arrogant as a result of it; like with her canon counterpart, she's polite and kind-hearted in spite of her wealth and status.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly-girl to Ino's tomboy.
* TookALevelInBadass: She starts out as a complete non-fighter, getting knocked out with an elbow to the face from Zabuza when she frantically but futilely hits him to make him stop the arm-twisting he's giving Neji during the confrontation with the Blood Mist gang at Burger Castle. ''Many'' chapters later, she's become capable enough to beat Sasuke in a spar and single-handedly trounce three random thugs. [[spoiler:And she holds her own against Yagura and defeats Matsuri later]].
* TheUnfavorite: Has shades of this with Hiashi, at first. Although he really does have her best interests at heart, he's not too keen on heeding her point of view on certain things (particularly the subject of Naruto), in contrast to Neji and Hanabi (the former as Konoha High's student council president, the latter as a consistent straight-A student at her school).
* WillNotBeAVictim: The whole reason she decided to learn how to fight, following the incident with Yagura's Blood Mist gang at Burger Castle, was so she wouldn't be as ineffective in future as she was against the gang during that incident.
* YamatoNadeshiko: In addition to being a member of one of the richest families in town (fulfilling the nobility aspect of this trope), during her early appearances, she's quiet, respectful of authority, and desirous of obeying her father. As the story progresses, though, she shows that she'll stand up for what she believes when it counts, including opposing Hiashi's attitude toward Naruto in Chapter 17 despite Naruto's Kyuushingai status. And this is ''before'' she takes up training with Yugito.

!!Hyuga Hiashi
The CEO of the Hyuga Corporation, and business rival of Uchiha Fugaku. He's also Hinata's and Hanabi's father and Neji's uncle, as in canon.
* AdaptationalWimp: In canon, he was powerful enough to knock away several Sand shinobi with one attack while [[BadassBoast declaring that the Hyuga clan was the strongest clan in Konoha]]. Here, he's not a physical fighter, and is barely able to keep Matsuri from stabbing him in the arm when she attacks the Hyuga family at the Samsara Hotel (though he ''is'' a crack-shot with a rifle).
* ArrangedMarriage: The thirtieth Gaiden reveals that his marriage to Hiroko, Hinata's and Hanabi's mother, was one of these, the result of a business arrangement between his father and her parents. It later became a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage.
* [[EducationMama Education Papa]]: Hiashi expects his children to give nothing less than excellence in their academics, to the point that he admonishes Hinata to practice her music lessons so that she may earn a shot at a music scholarship when her upcoming musical recital takes place, in case college recruiters happen to be in the audience at that time (despite Hinata arguing that she's still only in her second year of high school). After hearing from Neji that Naruto had fallen asleep during one of his classes, Hiashi warns Hinata not to associate too much with the blond boy, lest his (perceived) penchant for laziness rubs off on her; that and the knowledge that Naruto had gotten transferred from Uzushio High School for vague reasons (a later chapter reveals that it was for damaging school property while fighting) has Hiashi on edge about what sort of influence Naruto may have on his family's academic pursuits...and this is ''before'' he finds out about Naruto's past as a Kyuushingai, at which point his prejudice grows even more.
* OverprotectiveDad: Hiashi becomes this for his children, mainly Hinata, once he forms the impression that Naruto doesn't take his studies as seriously as Hinata is expected to do with hers. The over-protectiveness increases after Hiashi finds out that Naruto was one of the Kyuushingai, as he doesn't want his daughter associating with a guy who was part of a group infamous for causing 365 days of carnage across several cities in the not-too-distant past.
** ParentsAsPeople: As Kabuto tells Naruto, Hiashi isn't an evil man; he's just not well-equipped to deal with losing family members, hence his over-protectiveness of his daughters and nephew. For perspective, Hiashi lost his wife (Hinata's and Hanabi's mother) in a car accident, and then lost his brother (Neji's father) to cancer sometime afterward.
* SourOutsideSadInside: According to Kabuto.
* TheStoic: He has this reputation as the CEO of Hyuga Corporation.
** NotSoStoic: He's not ashamed at showing immense relief after seeing Hanabi safe and sound [[spoiler:following her being kidnapped in the Abduction Arc]]. There's also his quiet, tremulous reaction to watching Hinata play her late mother's favorite song during the school recital.
* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler:Arranges to pay Naruto's hospital bills after the latter is injured by Mizuki and the Akatsuki group. Granted, the fact that Naruto got said injuries while trying to rescue Hanabi has much to do with it]].

!!Hyuga Neji
Hinata's cousin, and a senior at Konoha High School, he's also its student council president. He is rather wary of Naruto from their first meeting, an attitude that isn't helped when he finds out about Naruto's past.
* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Older Cousin]]: Toward Hinata, slightly less so toward Hanabi.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: For Lee, academically.
* BigBrotherInstinct: For Hinata, though they're actually cousins.
* BrainyBrunette: Of course. Hinata mentions that Neji is a very good candidate to make valedictorian.
* TheComicallySerious: Neji is the student council president of Konoha High School, a stickler for upholding the rules, and as serious as they come. However, pair him with Lee and watch Neji turn into a DeadpanSnarker who'll [[ComicalAngryFace snap]] at any suggestion that [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Tenten is his girlfriend]] or [[DopeSlap slap Lee with a]] ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser sandwich]]''; or, put him in any scene with [[LittleMissSnarker Hanabi]] or [[ServileSnarker Kabuto]] and watch him go off the bend.
* CoolCar: He drives a dark-blue two-seater Porsche Boxter, which he got as his 18th-birthday present.
* CovertPervert: He accidentally outs himself as a closeted fan of the ''Icha Icha'' series. Also, one of the Hyuga mansion servants reveals that she once overheard him going on a [[ADateWithRosiePalms palm-date]] [[ShipTease while calling Tenten's name]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly when Lee's involved.
* DisappearedDad: His dad died from cancer, according to Kabuto.
* InformedAbility: He's touted as a powerful fighter who has served as Hyuga Corp's representative in its yearly contests with the Uchiha Zaibatsu to determine which side will rule the business monopoly of Konoha Town, and in fact he's stated by Sasuke and Fugaku to have won the previous two years' competitions. Then he goes up against Zabuza of the Blood Mist gang...[[TheWorfEffect and is subjected to a]] CurbStompBattle.
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Neji's a Knight Templar Older Cousin for Hinata, seeking to keep her away from Naruto's influence by any means necessary after finding out the latter was one of the Kyuushingai. [[OverprotectiveDad Hiashi]] supports this, but Hinata herself isn't pleased.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* ManipulativeBastard: Neji takes advantage of Kiba's despondency over Hinata's rejection of his (Kiba's) love confession and the revelation that Hinata had already had an AccidentalKiss with Naruto, to manipulate Kiba into fighting Naruto, as part of a plan to either get Naruto arrested (since Kiba's the son of Konoha Town's police chief) or expelled from school (Konoha High frowns on students with criminal records).
* MissingMom: There's no mention made of Neji's mother at all, unlike his DisappearedDad.
* [[MySisterIsOffLimits My Cousin Is Off Limits]]: Subtly done against Naruto once he finds out about the latter's past as a Kyuushingai. Hinata herself retards Neji's efforts, however.
* NervesOfSteel: [[spoiler:Was willing to confront Yagura to protect Hanabi]].
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Neji would like you to know that he and Tenten are classmates and nothing more, thank you very much. Lee doesn't buy it.
* TheStoic: Usually. However, when he's around Lee, Hanabi or Kabuto, he becomes TheComicallySerious.
* StudentCouncilPresident: As noted above.
* TheWorfEffect: Goes up against Zabuza of the Blood Mist gang and [[CurbStompBattle quickly gets one-shotted]]. He resolves to become stronger after that incident.

!!Hyuga Hanabi
Hiashi's younger daughter, Hinata's younger sister and Neji's younger cousin.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Has shades of this, given her frequent waspish remarks toward her own older sister and cousin.
* AscendedExtra: In canon, Hanabi was a SatelliteCharacter who we hardly ever got to see or find out anything about. This fanfic gives her regular supporting character status.
* CordonBleughChef: During her first outing as a lemonade sales-girl, she mixes up a nice, refreshing jug of the beverage...but she ''forgets the sugar''. Lee's the only one who actually likes it; when Suigetsu and Jugo come along and try it, HilarityEnsues.
* LittleMissSnarker: Hanabi is not afraid to snark at either Hinata or Neji.
** StepfordSnarker: It's implied that her dry wit is actually a coping mechanism to deal with [[MissingMom her mother's death]].
* MissingMom: Same as Hinata; it's noted that the accident happened when Hanabi was very young, as Hanabi barely remembers her, aside from a portrait of the woman that's hanging in the Hyuga family's main hall.
* TheNicknamer: Naruto gets this most frequently from her, being referred to as "Straw-head," initially as an insult but later as an AffectionateNickname (to which he responds by calling her "pipsqueak" for the same two reasons). She's also referred to Suigetsu as "Baseball Crotch" (because of his infamous GroinAttack incident from Naruto early in the story), Jugo as "Carrot-top," Tenten as "Panda-hair," and Lee as a "knight in green armor" (though she usually just calls him Lee-nii-san out of admiration).

!!Yakushi Kabuto
The retainer for the Hyuga family.
* AdaptationalHeroism: His canon counterpart is TheDragon to Orochimaru and is himself ''not'' a nice or trustworthy person. Here, Kabuto is presented as a very reasonable individual, even offering to help Naruto get set up for the annual Hyuga family ball, to which Hiashi and Neji have sent the blond boy an invitation with the intention of publicly humiliating him--only Kabuto is also nice enough to warn Naruto about this.
* AdjustingYourGlasses
* ServileSnarker: Toward Neji, at least.
* ShipperOnDeck: He's quite supportive of Naruto and Hinata, even setting up events so they'll dance together at the annual Hyuga ball.

!!Tokuma Natsu, Tokuma Ko, and Tokuma Iroha
Hiashi's in-laws. Natsu is Hiroko's sister, Ko is her husband, and Iroha is Ko's older brother. Their only appearance so far is in the thirtieth Gaiden.
* AdaptationNameChange: All three were members of the Hyuga clan in canon. For this story, their only relation to the Hyuga family is through marriage (and also see CompositeCharacter directly below).
* CompositeCharacter: Natsu, Ko and Iroha all take their shared surname from Tokuma, another member of the Hyuga clan in the canon series.
* CoolUncle: Ko is this to the Hyuga kids.
* TheQuietOne: Iroha isn't one for social scenes, according to Hiashi.
* TheUnfavorite: From what Hiashi recalls of past conversations with Hiroko, she and Natsu drifted apart because Natsu felt that she was this to their parents, who she believed preferred Hiroko over her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Uchiha Zaibatsu]]
The Uchiha Zaibatsu is the other major MegaCorp in Konoha Town, after Hyuga Corporation, with whom it is fierce rivals. Entries related to its heir, Uchiha Sasuke, his father and the company CEO, Uchiha Fugaku, and their family members or employees can be seen here.

!!Uchiha Sasuke
The heir-apparent to the Uchiha Zaibatsu, and the local popular boy at Konoha High School.
* AnimalMotif: The hawk, not unlike his canon counterpart. He even has a fighting technique named "Nightmare Hawk Stomp."
* AnimeHair: Styled like a hawk's feathers, again not unlike canon.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Comes out during his fight with Naruto at the climax of the TournamentArc.
--> '''Sasuke:''' I am an Uchiha! We are the strongest there is! And ''I'' am the strongest Uchiha of all!
* BashBrothers: With Naruto, during the Spa Inferno arc.
* BeautyIsBad: Well, he's the school's resident ChickMagnet, ''and'' he's threatened to go public with Naruto's Kyuushingai status (relenting only because Naruto pointed out that such a move would backfire on the Uchiha Zaibatsu's popularity). [[spoiler:He also essentially blackmailed Shikamaru into staying in the Zaibatsu's tournament when Shika wanted to forfeit, under threat of ruining the Ino-Shika-Cho trio's family businesses if Shika didn't comply]].
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: He might be snooty when it comes to the Uchiha family's wealth and status, but he does show interest in Sakura getting CharacterDevelopment [[spoiler:even before they become a couple]].
* BloodKnight: Best emphasized during the gang's confrontation with Mizuki and his mooks [[spoiler:while rescuing Naruto]] during the Abduction Arc; despite them being surrounded by gangsters, Sasuke just laughs and says it's a chance for them to ''have fun''.
* BlueIsHeroic: He's worn blue on occasion, such as a blue jacket during the Spa Inferno arc. The arm-guards and leg-bracers he wears during the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational and later in the final arc are blue as well.
* ChickMagnet: Just like in canon...not like he cares, again just like in canon.
* CovertPervert: He has some very...interesting dreams about [[spoiler:Sakura, once they become an item]]. Itachi records evidence of it and teases him mercilessly for it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly directed toward Naruto.
--> '''Naruto:''' Whew...can't believe it's been two weeks since that time...[[note]]He's referring to the end of the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational Tournament.[[/note]]
--> '''Sasuke:''' Since the time you lost your brain, ''dobe?''
* FaceFramedInShadow: He pulls this between Chapters 3 and 16, when he's getting updates from his subordinates who've been tasked to observe Naruto's movements and find out all they can about the blond boy.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's quite willing to flaunt his money and connections to get his way, even if so doing might screw someone else over [[spoiler:such as when he blackmails Shikamaru to stay in his tournament instead of forfeiting]], but he'll put bastiches in their place when it's really called for, as he does with [[RichBitch Sakura]] when she badmouths Naruto during the latter's dance with Hinata.
* LethalChef: According to Itachi, Sasuke is still banned from combining tomato juice with milk after ''[[NoodleIncident something]]'' that happened ten years earlier.
* OddFriendship: With Hinata, considering that their fathers are business rivals and also the fact that their canon counterparts had practically no direct interaction with each other.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Naruto's red.
* TheResenter: [[spoiler:Kankuro assumes Sasuke is this after Fugaku chose Naruto, not him, as the winner of their fight in the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational and as the representative for the Zaibatsu against Hyuga Corporation. However, Sasuke subverts this by declaring that, regardless of his own feelings on the matter, his father was perfectly within his right, as the Zaibatsu's CEO, to choose Naruto if he saw fit]].
* SchoolIdol: For most of Konoha High's female population, anyway.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Sasuke makes this boast in Chapter 28 [[spoiler:while blackmailing Shikamaru to stay in his tournament instead of forfeiting]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Makes this boast during the same above incident.
* ShipperOnDeck: Subtly hinted to at least approve of Naruto getting with Hinata during Chapter 34, in which he gives Naruto a smirk as he goes off to let the two talk more privately, and then he more openly voices it after seeing them dance together at the Hyuga ball in Chapter 39.
--> '''Sasuke:''' They look good together.
** He also briefly teases Itachi about Yugito.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Much more icy than sugary at first, mind you.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Why the girls of Konoha High adore him.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TookALevelInKindness: After the Uchiha Zaibatsu Invitational.

!!Uchiha Fugaku
The CEO of the Uchiha Zaibatsu, Sasuke and Itachi's father, Mikoto's husband, and Hiashi's main business rival.
* {{Fanboy}}: Of the ''Shadow Fox'' comic book series, even playing with a few action figures from the series in one chapter instead of, you know, doing his work. Sasuke isn't impressed.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was among the victims of the Uchiha Massacre.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: He and Sasuke, respectively, are a downplayed example. Fugaku is a shrewd businessman, but one scene shows him playing with ''Shadow Fox'' action figures instead of working like he's supposed to be; Sasuke is more the brooding type and isn't impressed by said action-figure-obsession.
* WineIsClassy: The first time he appears in full in Chapter 32, he's shown with a glass of wine, which he continues drinking from in Chapter 33.

!!Uchiha Itachi
Sasuke's older brother and Fugaku's son. He's been keeping watch over Naruto incognito.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Subtler than most other examples in this fic, but still quite noticeable. In canon, Itachi is known for being an AloofOlderBrother to Sasuke, plus he's quite reticent when it comes to his emotions in general. In this universe, he's significantly more open with his family, much friendlier to his associates, and is even [[CovertPervert a closeted pervert]].
* AloofOlderBrother: To Sasuke, though not quite as distant as in canon.
* BerserkButton: Doing, or threatening to do, grievous bodily harm to his little brother is a ''major'' no-no. [[spoiler:Finding out that Mizuki attempted to shoot Sasuke [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown doesn't sit very well with Itachi]]]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: See his BerserkButton above.
* CovertPervert: Yugito constantly accuses him of being this. Itachi doesn't really help his own case when he's using his phone to take pictures of Ino groping Hinata's breasts or of Yugito wrestling Sakura to the ground (both completely non-sexual).
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: He flirted with his fellow agent Yugito for quite a while. [[spoiler:[[RelationshipUpgrade Then they took it a step further]]]].
* LethalChef: According to Sasuke, Itachi had a NoodleIncident concerning cod fish and soy sauce five years earlier. Apparently, poor cooking skill runs in the family.
* MysteriousWatcher: Keeping an eye on Naruto for a period of time.
* MysteriousProtector: For Naruto, again.
* NeverFoundTheBody: He disappeared during the 365 days, but Sasuke strongly believed he was still alive because of this trope. Sure enough, Itachi shows up alive and well in front of his father and brother, though he doesn't stick around long enough for a proper family reunion. [[spoiler:He's part of a black-ops group led by Minato, investigating the circumstances behind the 365 days]].
* ShipperOnDeck: Appears to approve of Sasuke and Sakura, even suggesting to Sasuke that he should ask the pink-haired girl out.

!!Uchiha Mikoto
Wife of Fugaku and mother of Sasuke and Itachi, she's an actress who's formally introduced in Chapter 153.
* TheGhost: Prior to Chapter 153, she was often mentioned but never actually seen in person.
* HappilyMarried: With Fugaku.
* LethalChef: Itachi makes fun of her for it, though Sasuke points out that she at least cooks better than Itachi himself.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Likely not to Yugito's level, but she's at least not afraid to get into the buff when it comes to bathing at a spa.
* StacysMom: If Chapter 153 is any indication.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, she was among the victims of the Uchiha Massacre.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha Town Police Force]]
The characters who make up the members of Konoha Town's law-enforcement body.

!!Chief Inuzuka Tsume
Konoha Town's chief of police, and Kiba's and Hana's mother.
* IWantGrandkids: Makes this complaint to Hana in the thirteenth Gaiden.
* IronLady
* LethalChef: According to Kiba.
--> '''Tsume:''' ''(complimenting Hana's cooking)'' What would I do without a daughter like you, eh?
--> '''Kiba:''' Probably cook the bologna until it tastes like a worn car tire.
* MamaBear: Her first response to news that her son Kiba may be in trouble is to send dozens of cops to the location to arrest whoever's responsible; and when Hana is kidnapped during the Vengeance Arc, she's very hands-on in assisting Naruto with the rescue effort. There's also her threat to Naruto very early on, in Chapter 12, following his confrontation with Kiba (for which Tsume had sent out the aforementioned cop-squad):
--> '''Tsume:''' If my son ever got so much as a scrape on him from you, I don't care if you were part of a group that terrified whole cities, I would stuff a shotgun up your ass and pull the trigger. Am I understood?
--> '''Naruto:''' ''(meekly)'' Yes, ma'am.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She knows about Dr. Haruno's connection to the Kyuushingai]].

!!Detectives Morino Ibiki and Umino Iruka
Two detectives who are usually partnered together, they are initially assigned by Tsume to keep an eye on Naruto after they learn of his Kyuushingai history.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Ibiki was mostly neutral toward Naruto, though he saw the blond as "interesting" after seeing his performance in the Chuunin exams' written portion[[note]]specifically, the fact that Naruto didn't write a single answer on the test paper and yet took the risky plunge of the [[SecretTestOfCharacter tenth question]] anyway[[/note]]; here, he's more of a downplayed InspectorJavert at first, but eventually comes to have (mild) respect for Naruto. [[spoiler:Played straight with Iruka, him being LOVE's mole in the Konoha Town department]].
* AloofBigBrother: Ibiki toward his younger brother Idate, especially after the latter got in trouble with the law for armed robbery. Idate still resents him somewhat for having this attitude.
* DeadpanSnarker: Ibiki, by far. As just one example, here's his response when he and Iruka arrest minor characters Emiru and Haruna at the mall.
--> '''Haruna:''' H-hey, let go of us! We didn't do anything wrong!
--> '''Ibiki:''' Well, obviously, having a fashion sense must be a felony now, because why else would you run--right?
* GoodCopBadCop: Iruka and Ibiki, respectively, utilize this during their interrogation of Konan in Chapter 49. However, Konan [[GenreSavvy knows this tactic well]] and says it won't work on her.
* NiceGuy: Iruka, at least, is much more civil to Naruto than Ibiki is.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Iruka is willing to give Naruto the benefit of the doubt concerning the boy's intentions for Konoha Town.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:They're both in on the secret of Dr. Haruno's connection to the Kyuushingai]].
* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: Ibiki isn't exactly trusting of Naruto once he finds out about the boy's Kyuushingai status, and is in fact quite ready to arrest him the first time they meet, but only relents because Mayor Tsunade and Chief Tsume (separately) give him different orders. What keeps him from being a full-blown InspectorJavert is the fact that, as a Kyuushingai, Naruto ''would'' in fact be wanted by the authorities for his actions during the 365 days, yet Ibiki won't overstep his own authority or his superiors' orders to arrest Naruto (the most that happens is that he and Iruka are ordered to keep surveillance on Naruto for a while to ensure he won't do anything to break the law, and once Tsume calls off the surveillance Ibiki complies).

!!Detective Tsuchigumo Hotaru
One of the newer members of the department, introduced during the Konoha Gangs Arc.
* ActionGirl: She's able to hold her own when the Hawks gang lays siege to the precinct during the Konoha Gangs arc.
* FairCop
* NaiveNewcomer: At the time of her introduction, she's only been with the department as a detective for a month, having gotten her rank within three months prior to her first appearance.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In the original anime (she's a filler character who's not in the manga), Tsuchigumo is the clan Hotaru is part of, though she's not listed as having a proper surname herself.
* WideEyedIdealist: Has shades of this, considering her optimism at Haku's chances of getting a favorable court ruling for having turned himself in for his role in Arashi's gang.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Konoha Town - Other Residents]]
!!Mr. and Mrs. Yamanaka
Ino's parents, and the owners and managers of the family's greengrocer store.
* GoodParents: Theirs is a happy family, from all indications.
* HappilyMarried
* NoNameGiven: Unlike Inochi, Ino's mother hasn't been identified by her first name at all, likely because in the canon series she was only ever seen in the anime. This is particularly noteworthy when even characters who didn't have surnames in canon (like Tenten, Jugo and Jiraiya) get them here.
* OpenMindedParent: Unlike Hiashi with regards to Hinata, Inoichi doesn't mind Ino hanging out with Naruto despite the boy having been a Kyuushingai (though the fact that Naruto rescued them and their store from Mizuki, who'd been pretending to be a Kyuushingai up to that point, likely has a lot to do with it). Also, Mrs. Yamanaka doesn't think twice about letting Naruto go up to Ino's room to visit her while Ino's recovering from a sprained ankle.
* PapaWolf: Inoichi was prepared to take on Mizuki's entire gang in order to protect his daughter. It didn't take, mind you, but points to the man for the effort.
* SecretKeeper: Inoichi was this alongside Ino, concerning Naruto's Kyuushingai past...until others started finding out.

!!Orochimaru
The lawyer for Mizuki and his gang.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In canon, Orochimaru was a major villain for most of the first part of the series. Here, he's definitely not shown as a lawbreaker of any sort (even the bit where he gets bail for Dosu, Zaku and Kin suggests he's just doing his job as a defense attorney).
* CoolCar: He drives a dark green new-edge modular SVT Mustang Cobra.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: He still retains his familiar looks for this story, even though he's a normal non-superpowered human in this universe.
* EvilLawyerJoke: Orochimaru complains that he's going to be on the receiving end of these after he manages to get Dosu, Zaku and Kin out on bail.
** Also, the very fact Orochimaru is a lawyer.

!!Senju Tsunade
The mayor of Konoha Town.
* AdaptationalWimp: Her canon counterpart is capable of [[SuperStrength creating massive craters in solid stone with just her fingertip]]. Here, since the setting is in an AlternateUniverse that's more akin to real life and she therefore doesn't have any of her canon fighting skills, Tsunade is easily taken captive by Akatsuki's Konan, requiring Naruto to save her.
* ChristmasCake: She's declared one of these by Jiraiya in Chapter 95. Needless to say, she does not take it well.
--> '''Tsunade:''' SHUT UP! I just haven't found the right guy to marry, that's all!
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She doesn't have a proper surname in the canon series, though she ''is'' a descendant of the Senju bloodline. The fan-fic streamlines this by giving her the surname Senju.
* NotAMorningPerson: As revealed in Chapter 97, she tries (and fails) to rebel when her alarm clock blares at 6:00 a.m.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She knows about Dr. Haruno's role in creating the Nine Terrors]].

!!Dr. and Mrs. Haruno
Sakura's parents, Kizashi and Mebuki. Kizashi is the chief administrator of Konoha Hospital.
* HappilyMarried: And still very much in love, [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents to Sakura's embarrassment]].
--> '''Kizashi:''' What's for dinner?
--> '''Mebuki:''' Sweet and sour chicken, potato salad with green peas and sweet peppers, with rolls and a tossed salad. And pomegranate juice.
--> '''Kizashi:''' Pomegranate juice, eh? Why must you tempt me so, woman?
--> '''Mebuki:''' ''(suggestively)'' I haven't begun to tempt you yet, Kizashi...
--> '''Sakura:''' Mom! A-HEM!
* TheResenter: Mebuki used to be this, by her own admission, concerning her husband's late hours when he was doing his residency, with the result that he didn't have a lot of time for her. She's learned to accept it over the years, however.
* SharedUnusualTrait: As noted in Sakura's entry, she gets her pink hair from her dad.
* SupremeChef: Mebuki, according to Chapter 35 and the quoted section a few tropes up.

!!Inuzuka Hana
Kiba's older sister and Tsume's daughter, she's a doctor doing her residency at Konoha Hospital.
* CoolBigSis
* CovertPervert: Described as such in the thirteenth Gaiden [[spoiler:by her husband Idate]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Idate]]:''' ...there's freaky, and then there's ''Hana''.
* DamselInDistress: Alongside Hokuto, during the Vengeance Arc, when both of them are kidnapped by Sumaru's Star-Boys gang to lure Naruto into a trap.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly targeting her mother.
* HospitalHottie

!!Maito Guy
A radio announcer and news commentator in Konoha Town.
* TheVoice: The only times he ever really shows up is over the radio when giving commentary on some major news items, such as when he comments on the activities of Mizuki's gang in Chapter 1. [[spoiler:He shows up in person in Chapter 42, however, and again during the Vengeance Arc]].

!!Aburame Shibi
Shino's father, a communications engineer for a mobile-phone provider whose parent company is Hyuga Corp.
* BadassBoast: "If you raise that stick to me, I will break it ''and'' you."
* DeadpanSnarker: "You have an interesting fighting style--beating up people's fists with your face."
* OverprotectiveDad: A fairly mild case, as he's wary of Shino associating with Karui following the events of the Underground Fists arc. To be fair, the events of that arc ''had'' put Shino at risk of severe injury or worse.
* PapaWolf: If you so much as put a hand on Shino, Shibi will not hesitate to smash your face.
--> '''Shibi:''' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner You just tried to flog my son. For that]], ''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner I'm]]'' [[PreAssKickingOneLiner going to flog]] ''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner you]]''.
* TheStoic: He can usually keep his cool and be very methodical about things. [[NotSoStoic Unless]] [[PapaWolf Shino's in serious danger]].
* SunglassesAtNight: Like his son.
* TranquilFury: Does not ''once'' raise his voice even while laying out a smack-down [[PapaWolf to protect Shino]].

!!Akimichi Choza
Choji's father, and the proprietor for Akimichi Meats.
* BigEater: According to Choji, his dad will raid the fridge for leftovers ''in addition to breakfast'' in the morning. And now you know where Choji gets it from.
* NotAMorningPerson: Choza tends to sleep in late even up to 9:30 on a Sunday morning.
* PapaWolf: Did you just threaten Choji? Have fun being beaten like a rag-doll.

!!Ayame
A waitress at Burger Castle, and just like her canon counterpart, she's quite friendly to Naruto.
* AdaptationalBadass: [[spoiler:She helps to rescue a captive Chojuro in the Endgame arc, by helping to gun down his captors]].
* AdaptationalJerkass: A minor example. She's still quite friendly to Naruto and most other people, but she holds nothing but contempt toward Kakashi, who she believes makes a bad [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend not-boyfriend]] for Rin; she even goes as far as to deliberately give Kakashi badly-prepared food while having Rin's order perfectly made, to emphasize her scorn for him. [[spoiler:It turns into AdaptationalVillainy once her ties to LOVE are revealed]].
* BullyingADragon: [[spoiler:Retroactively, Mizuki's goons who slapped her ass at the beginning of the story were doing this, considering she's a trained undercover LOVE agent]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Remember the server girl who got sexually harassed by two of Mizuki's goons in Chapter 2? That was Ayame, though she wouldn't be identified by name for many, many chapters afterward; she later recounts the incident in Chapter 98.
* MeaningfulName: As noted in her entry on the canon series' wiki, Ayame's name means "iris," as in the plant. [[spoiler:Depending on the kanji used, it can also mean "to murder." Both meanings are used in her LOVE code-name of "Death Iris."]]
* NiceGirl: She'll be the nicest server girl you could ever hope to get service from at a restaurant. Unless your name's Kakashi, in which case she becomes an example of AdaptationalJerkass.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: With Kakashi, especially in Chapter 98.

!!Hozuki Mangetsu, Morino Idate, and Hagane Kotetsu
A trio of buddies who are introduced at the beginning of the Underground Fists arc. All three were arrested five years earlier for armed robbery, but now that they've reunited, they're coming back to Konoha Town...
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Kotetsu was a CoolTeacher who was loyal to Konoha, and Idate (a filler character) was a good guy who was merely misled by Aoi and had to leave Konoha because of it. Mangetsu, who was one of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, may be closer to a NobleDemon, as he was stated to be much more humble than his brother Suigetsu ''and'' for the fact that the Seven Swordsmen are considered heroes in their native Hidden Mist Village.
* AntagonisticOffspring: Mangetsu does not have any fond feelings for his parents, but especially his father, to the point that he thinks nothing of shoving Gengetsu and making him fall (on a couch, luckily) when the older man attempts to discipline him. The fact that the family never once came to visit him while he was in prison has a lot to do with it.
* ArmedBlag: The trio got arrested for trying to rob an armored car. Mangetsu got five years in jail, and Idate and Kotetsu got suspended sentences since they were first-time offenders.
* BastardBoyfriend: It's hinted that Kotetsu used to be this [[spoiler:to Anko]].
* BigBrotherBully: Mangetsu has shades of this toward Suigetsu.
* CainAndAbel: Mangetsu and Idate are the Cain to Suigetsu's and Ibiki's Abel, respectively, although Idate is actually Ibiki's younger brother.
* PairTheSpares: [[spoiler:Idate eventually marries Hana, while Kotetsu gets together with Mei]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: Idate and Kotetsu eventually become this, to some extent.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Mangetsu thinks nothing of clubbing a kid in the head with a rock to steal said kid's dog, or of almost killing [[spoiler:his own kid brother]] if his plans to make a quick buck for himself are threatened.
* WouldHitAGirl: Mangetsu isn't afraid to pull this when Kushina confronts him [[spoiler:in time to stop him from stomping Suigetsu to death]]. Kotetsu is also implied to have this in his character [[spoiler:from his brief interaction with his ex Anko]], though fortunately the police show up before we can find out for certain.

!!Hozuki Gengetsu
The alcoholic father of Suigetsu and Mangetsu.
* AdaptationalWimp: In canon, Gengetsu was the Second Mizukage and was considered one of the strongest shinobi of his generation. Here...he's not even able to keep from being shoved by his own son Mangetsu (of course, he ''is'' drunk at the time).
* TheAlcoholic: Suigetsu indicates that Gengetsu used to work at a food-processing plant, but it's later revealed that Gengetsu was fired a year prior to the start of the story, and he's been friends with the bottle ever since. Mangetsu reveals that Gengetsu had had drinking problems even before he was fired.
* CoolOldGuy: ''Tries'' to be this. Mangetsu and Suigetsu both think he's pathetic.
* ParentalNeglect: He's constantly drunk, [[ParentalAbandonment he failed to go visit his older son while the latter was in prison]], and he's not been a proper role model to his younger son.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In the original series, Gengetsu, Mangetsu and Suigetsu are all members of the Hozuki clan, but Gengetsu's not stated to be directly related to the boys otherwise. Here, he's their father.

!!Hozuki Ryuzetsu
Suigetsu and Mangetsu's mother, and Gengetsu's wife.
* ExtremeDoormat: She's a little too resigned to her husband's mooching and drunken ways. Kushina calls her on it.
--> '''Kushina:''' Is it your intention to be an extreme doormat all the rest of your life?
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She's got no connection whatsoever to the Hozuki clan in canon, plus she's a filler character from the ''Naruto'' movies anyway.

!!Mr. Ozaki
Haruna's father, and one of those residents of Konoha Town who are anti-Kyuushingai.
* AscendedExtra: In the canon series' anime, he only showed up in one scene during a flashback. He doesn't even get a page of his own on the ''Naruto'' series' wiki page, to put this into extra perspective.
* LastNameBasis: His first name hasn't been revealed.
* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: He's on the subjective side of this trope and a gender-flipped example, as he initially refuses to believe Haruna could be capable of any wrongdoing [[spoiler:after she and Emiru are held for vandalizing Sakura's family house]]. When the evidence comes up to prove otherwise...the father-daughter relationship gets somewhat strained as a result.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He didn't have a revealed name in canon.
* OverprotectiveDad: In the sense that he really doesn't approve of Naruto being in Konoha Town due to being a Kyuushingai, and therefore he doesn't want Haruna to be anywhere around the boy because of that fact.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: He's long dead in Haruna's back-story in canon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Kyuushingai]]
The Kyuushingai ("Nine Terrors") are nine individuals who were actively involved in a 365-day rampage that left most of the region damaged and its people terrified of them. All sorts of UrbanLegends have been created concerning their exploits, but to date the nine remain steeped in myth.

Tropes relating to the Kyuushingai as a group, or regarding the rumors and legends about them, are listed immediately below; more character-specific tropes are found in the relevant character lists in this folder (Naruto's entry is in his own folder above, while Gaara's and Yagura's entries are in the LOVE folder below).

* AnimalThemeNaming: Their code-names, as revealed in Chapter 3: Shukaku the Raccoon (Gaara), Matatabi the Cat (Yugito), Isobu the Turtle (Yagura), Son Goku the Gorilla (Roshi), Kokuo the Horse (Han), Saiken the Slug (Utakata), Chomei the Beetle (Fuu), Gyuki the Bull (Killer Bee), and Kurama the Fox (Naruto). Yugito later reveals that Killer Bee pulled double-duty with his rapper nickname.
* AscendedExtra: Applies specifically to those members of the Terrors not named Naruto, Gaara or Killer Bee, as those three were major characters in canon (and one was the series' titular character). As for the other six, while their jinchuriki status certainly impacted the canon series' plot, the characters themselves weren't showcased that much (although Utakata got [[ADayInTheLimelight a limelight flashback]] in the anime).
* TheDreaded: According to the back-story, and it's made worse because to date nobody even knows what they ''look like''. During the 365 days, cities that hadn't been impacted by the Nine Terrors made a point of being extremely courteous to people they didn't know, in case said strangers might turn out to be one of the Nine and cause upheaval if crossed. The terror they inspired was so great that Mizuki's taking advantage of their reputation was enough for him to control most of Konoha Town.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Had none of the Nine agreed to be trained by the government, and had the 365 days not happened, it's unlikely any of them would have become what they eventually did.
* ImAHumanitarian: One rumor about the Nine Terrors states that they were cannibalistic blood-drinkers who liked to [[EatsBabies eat babies]].
* MuggingTheMonster: People who don't know who they are tend to pick fights with them disturbingly often. They usually pick Naruto and simply get a beating, but when they get Yugito or Fuu they usually die.
* NeuralImplanting: [[spoiler:How the nine people who would later become the Kyuushingai got their advanced intelligence. According to Naruto, by using this method, the scientists who worked on the nine were able to cram ten years' worth of training into four months' time, and they were able to learn several languages, combat tactics and weapons skills by this method. However, in a variation of this trope, they had to actually practice the newly-gotten skills for the information to stick]].
* OneManArmy: Just one member alone is said to be able to take on a whole gang without sustaining a scratch, or kill 300 people within a fortnight.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: According to the various rumors about them arising from the 365 days' carnage, in addition to their individual OneManArmy status, all nine together could conceivably reduce a city to ashes in less than an hour.
* ShroudedInMyth: While nobody denies that the Nine Terrors exist, nobody is sure what their agenda is/was or even what they look like, resulting in all sorts of unreliable stories about them. Mizuki takes advantage of this to pass himself off as a former Kyuushingai, three months prior to the start of the story.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Again, applies specifically to those members of the terrors not named Naruto, Gaara or Killer Bee; in canon, the others were killed at different points in time by Akatsuki.
* SuperSoldier: What they were trained to be.
* UrbanLegends: As explained above, a lot of these cropped up about the Kyuushingai and the 365 days, within the two-year TimeSkip after the end of that time, and most of those legends made the Nine Terrors out to be superhuman beings based on the level of destruction that was left in their wake. Aside from the rumors and legends listed here, there are claims that collateral damage from any two Kyuushingai fighting each other would be catastrophic[[note]]the closest to catastrophic that's actually shown is when Utakata causes some damage to a parking garage with his whips during his fight with Naruto, but otherwise the rest of the building they're in remains intact; also, Fuu doesn't do that much structural damage with her machine gun despite the number of people she shoots dead[[/note]], that a waiter who spilled some soup while serving a guest had a massive FreakOut due to his fear that he might've offended one of the Kyuushingai[[note]]later revealed to be one of the members of Akatsuki[[/note]], that the Terrors were over nine feet tall and 400 pounds[[note]]a clear exaggeration, as Han, who's the tallest of the nine, is just a little over seven feet tall in canon[[/note]], that they wielded exotic weapons[[note]]confirmed at least with Utakata's bladed whips and Fuu's machine-gun guitar[[/note]], and that the real death toll from the 365 days was between 1000 and 2000 casualties despite the "official" number being 247[[note]]Yugito confirms that the "official" number is false[[/note]].
* YouAreAlreadyDead: According to the rumors, the Kyuushingai could kill people so quickly that the victims wouldn't even know they were dead till after the fact.

!!Nii Yugito
A member of the Kyuushingai, code-named "Matatabi the Cat." Two years after the 365-day carnage, she's working as a government agent, first being introduced in the story when she arrives to warn Naruto about the activities of Akatsuki.
* ActionGirl: By proxy since she was a member of the Kyuushingai.
* AggressiveSubmissive: Itachi surmises that she's this. Yugito doesn't deny it.
* AllWomenArePrudes: Averted with Yugito. While she confides to Itachi late in the story that she's in fact a virgin, she's not afraid of showing off her body, as the ShamelessFanserviceGirl trope below outlines. [[spoiler:And the seventh Gaiden implies she's not afraid to use a few...sexual aids in consummating her marriage to Itachi later on]].
* AmazonianBeauty: On full display in Chapter 43, where Hinata catches her in a ShowerOfAwkward and then spends a few minutes EatingTheEyeCandy. Hinata observes that Yugito has significant muscular tone all over, including her limbs and butt, as well as a total absence of belly fat that allows for showcasing of her abs. Plus, elsewhere throughout the story Yugito is described as being a HeadTurningBeauty.
* AnimalMotif: Hers is the cat. Different characters have at one time or another addressed her as "kitty-cat" or some other cat-themed variation, plus she uses [[WolverineClaws claws]] to fight, she can be stealthy when necessary, and on at least one occasion she chooses milk as a drink order.
* AscendedExtra: In canon, even as one of the jinchuriki, she had an extremely minor role overall. Here, although she's first introduced in Chapter 39, she soon gains ground as a major character in her own right.
* BadassTeacher: Becomes one for Hinata.
* BathingBeauty: Whether in a hot tub or a WaterfallShower, she apparently ''loves'' engaging in this. She actually admits to Itachi that she likes taking baths whenever she can.
* BeneathTheMask: Beneath the tough-as-nails ActionGirl who happens to be [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl shameless about showing off her body]], there is a woman who is scared of being vulnerable, helpless, or in any way unable to defend herself, as well as someone who [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants to be a normal person]]. Itachi is the only person who she's willingly removed the mask for, to date, though Hinata has gotten a brief glimpse underneath it as well.
* BigBreastPride: "No implants...everything's 100 percent me."
* BoobsOfSteel: According to Hinata's observation, Yugito's melons aren't quite the size of actual melons, but they're still impressively sized. Additionally, Yugito is one of the stronger fighters in the story.
* CoolBigSis: Develops this relationship with Hinata.
* CovertPervert: Implied in the seventh Gaiden [[spoiler:where she had a number of, ahem, ''tools'' ready to use with Itachi on their wedding night]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Itachi]]:''' Uh, Yugito, dear...are those what I think those are...? And what's ''that'' thing for...? And what the hell is THAT?
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: At least, going off of Hinata's blushing while seeing her in the WaterfallShower in Chapter 43...plus the fact that Hinata ''keeps'' watching after the initial surprise.
* FairCop: She used to be this prior to her Kyuushingai training. She was fairly high-ranking too, having made detective-sergeant at the time of her volunteering for the Kyuushingai program.
* GoodIsNotNice [[GoodIsNotSoft or Soft]]: Just because she's on Naruto's side, that doesn't mean she'll go easy on opponents. [[spoiler:Just ask Kin, Monjin and Hidan...[[KilledOffForReal oh wait]]]].
* IJustWantToBeNormal: In Chapter 77, she confides to Itachi that she just wants to be a regular woman, as far as her feelings toward her Kyuushingai status are concerned.
--> '''Yugito:''' Sometimes I wish I could just be...me. Not an ex-cop. Not a member of the Nine Terrors. Not a secret government operative. Just ''me''.
--> '''Itachi:''' And...who ''is'' Nii Yugito?
--> '''Yugito:''' Nii Yugito is a woman who likes to take hot baths or cold showers whenever she can. Nii Yugito is a bit of a daring exhibitionist. Nii Yugito likes to make fun with those she considers her friends. Nii Yugito...is normal.
* LittleBlackDress: She is introduced in Chapter 39 wearing one of these at the Hyuga social event.
* MsFanservice / ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Yugito isn't shy about taking a WaterfallShower whenever she can, even if someone happens to come across her that way. She's actually quite amused that Hinata, having accidentally caught her in just such a situation, has thereafter spent a good few minutes staring at the older woman's, uh, assets. Of course, Yugito puts on a bathrobe afterward, since Hinata's there to talk about serious matters and she doesn't want to embarrass the young girl further (but she's not above verbally teasing her about it).
--> '''Yugito:''' Enjoying the view, Hyuga-chan?
* SexyMentor: For Hinata. Also for Naruto, to a lesser degree.
* TheTease: She deliberately let Hinata see her in the WaterfallShower just to get a rise out of the younger woman, as she later admits to Itachi.
* {{Tsundere}}: As revealed in the first Gaiden chapter, she has this attitude toward Itachi [[spoiler:long before their RelationshipUpgrade]].
* TwoGirlsToATeam: With Fuu, during their stint in the Kyuushingai.
* WolverineClaws: Her weapon of choice for melee combat is a pair of gloves equipped with claws that are hidden inside the knuckles, activated or deactivated as needed via a hidden mechanism in the palm of the gloves' heels.[[note]]She also had claws in canon, but there she grew them out of her fingernails as an ability borne of her jinchuriki powers.[[/note]]

!!Utakata
A member of the Kyuushingai, with the code-name "Saiken the Slug." Two years after the 365-day carnage, he has become a serial killer who focuses on doctors and their families.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, he's not particularly stated to be an evil person, albeit he ''was'' one of the jinchuriki who'd gotten disillusioned due to mistreatment by his village.
* AxCrazy: Had hints of this before he became a Kyuushingai. The training he underwent did not help in this regard, although he had the presence of mind to hide his mental illness from the attending physicians and trainers in charge of the program.
--> '''Utakata:''' They allowed a psychopath like me to be transformed into a SMART psychopath.
* BadassLongcoat: A blue one.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Averted, much to Naruto's surprise when they fight. Despite being proficient at long-range whip-fighting, Utakata proves himself capable of using empty-hand techniques, including kicks, if his opponent happens to get inside his range. Lampshaded by Utakata himself when, moments after Naruto's gotten close enough to land a few hits, he shocks Naruto by pulling an over-arcing kick that catches the blond boy right in the face.
--> '''Utakata:''' You think I was only going to focus on ''one'' type of fighting style?
* GlassCannon: Good at dishing out hits long-range (and short-range too, if pressed), but suffers a great deal if he's hit himself.
* KnightOfCerebus: Prior to Utakata showing up, every opponent Naruto faced was out of their league (Mizuki and his gang, Aoi, Kiba), skilled but not malicious enough to actually want to kill him (Sasuke, Jugo, Sai, Shikamaru), or, at worst, antagonistic but unable to follow through with extreme violence for one reason or another (Suigetsu, Tenten). The Slug? He's able to fight Naruto in a potential death-match on equal footing and has no qualms about taking off Naruto's head ''and'' almost does so, only failing due to quick movements on Naruto's part. That's the first indication that things are not going to be business as usual from then on out.
* LeaveNoWitnesses: Whenever Utakata went on a serial-killing spree during the two-year TimeSkip, anybody unlucky enough to be in the vicinity would not escape, even if they weren't his specified targets. It's the reason he managed to elude the law for as long as he did.
* SerialKiller: As noted above. [[spoiler:His particular targets were all involved in the Kyuushingai's training]].
* SlasherSmile
* WhipItGood: Utakata's signature weapon, during his time with the Kyuushingai. Specifically, he utilizes two whips that are outfitted with blades along their length; the blades are strategically placed so that they won't impede the whips' natural ability to bend, making them pseudo-[[WhipSword whip-swords]]; as well, [[WordOfGod the author's commentary]] notes that this was inspired by [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Cho of the Jupon Gatana]]. [[spoiler:It's how Kizashi was able to figure out that the serial killing spree during the last two years was Utakata's doing. When Naruto is told of the whip-wounds the victims sustained, he too figures it out]].
* WouldHurtAChild: Utakata, in his debut chapter, shows that he's not averse to murdering children, as evidenced by the speech he gives their father before butchering him.
--> '''Utakata:''' Don't worry about your children. They are beyond help now...just as your wife is...just as you soon will be.

!!Roshi
A member of the Kyuushingai, code-named "Son Goku the Gorilla." Two years after the 365-day rampage, he works as the curator of the Iwa City Museum.
* BadassBeard: Just like with his canon counterpart.
* BerserkButton: Two of them--attacking innocents and assaulting his museum. Deidara hit both ''simultaneously''.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yes, he's a DirtyOldMan and is not ashamed of it...but he single-handedly took out a member of Akatsuki [[spoiler:by blowing him up with a grenade]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's a lecherous old pervert who happens to be the very knowledgeable curator of Iwa City's museum. In the two chapters where he's shown up, he's shown to be quite competent at his job, but spends more time ogling and lusting after Kurenai and recalling how he once tried to grope Yugito [[NoodleIncident and the undisclosed events that happened as a result of that]].
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Yes, he acts like a pervert who just ''happens'' to be a curator...but keep in mind that this guy WAS one of the Nine Terrors.
* CoolOldGuy: He is the oldest of the Nine Terrors, and is perfectly capable of dishing out a beating.
* DirtyOldMan: When Naruto openly accuses him of being this ([[WeDoNotKnowEachOther while pretending not to know who he is]]), Roshi doesn't deny it, even going as far as to give Kurenai a too-interested look. This behavior of his was also the subject of a NoodleIncident with Yugito, as Naruto recalls.
* GeniusBruiser: Roshi worked as a museum curator prior to joining the Kyuushingai training program. Following the 365 days, the first thing he did was to go right back to being museum curator in Iwa City, and yet two years later he's strong and skilled enough to fight [[MadBomber Deidara]].
* LastNameBasis: As revealed with his granddaughter Ajisai in the Gaiden Chronicles, Roshi is in fact their family name.
* LetsGetDangerous: Kurenai notes that the Roshi who orders her to take her students to safety so he can take on Deidara unhindered is a ''very'' far cry from the DirtyOldMan who was ogling her mere moments earlier.
* LovableSexManiac: Although he embarrasses Kurenai with his perverted ways, when it comes to serious topics (such as the casualties of the 365 days), he's quite paternal, especially when discussing the subject of the past with Naruto, a fellow [[TheAtoner atoner]]. Even Yugito, who Roshi likewise lusted after and once tried to grope, has fairly fond memories of him, as does Fuu, who reacts badly upon discovering [[spoiler:Konan managed to kill Roshi]].
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In this story, he's Ajisai's grandfather; in canon, they have no connections to each other.
* RetiredBadass: As far as Kyuushingai activity was concerned.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Roshi pulls a suplex on Deidara early in their fight in Chapter 45.

!!Han
A member of the Kyuushingai, code-named "Kokuo the Horse." Two years after the 365-day carnage, he's living as a pastor in charge of a soup kitchen.
* ApologeticAttacker: He gives a brief apology to a dog before [[MercyKill breaking its neck to end its suffering]], despite the dog being a trained attack dog which had just tried to maul him and got thrown into an electric fence for its trouble.
* TheAtoner: Why he became a pastor.
* BadassPreacher: He may have become a pastor as a way to atone for his sins, but he is still capable of kicking the crap out of people.
* CombatPragmatist: He knows that shining a flashlight in an enemy's face will blind and distract them long enough to give him the upper hand and take them out.
* EmotionalBruiser: When we first meet him, Han is heading a soup kitchen that feeds the local homeless population of his city, plus he expresses remorse at the suffering that the 365 days (of which he was a part) caused...and yet he is capable of handing out a brutal beating when pressed.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He may not desire to go back to the violence of his past self during the 365 days, but while he may not kill you, he ''will'' cause you a world of pain in subduing you. [[spoiler:Case in point: he blasts out Menma's knee with a shotgun]].
* GoodShepherd: How his subordinates and patrons at his soup kitchen see him.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He proves good enough with a firearm to shoot people in their extremities while he and they are on the move.
* LightningBruiser: Despite being as tall as he is, Han is ''not'' any slower because of it; in fact, it's pointed out by Gaara that, during his time in the Kyuushingai, Han would use this to his advantage against smaller opponents who thought they'd be faster than him because of the size difference.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler:He reveals that he had an opportunity to kill Gaara around the start of the 365 days, but never did so; he regrets the missed opportunity to this day]].
* ReluctantWarrior: He'd much rather not fight if he can avoid it. [[GoodIsNotSoft If you force him to, though]]...
* ThatManIsDead: Han declares to Gaara, during their confrontation in Chapter 48, that his former persona of Kokuo the Horse is dead, citing this trope verbatim in said declaration.

!!Fuu
A member of the Kyuushingai, she had the code-name "Chomei the Beetle." According to Yugito, prior to the 365 days, Fuu had dreams of becoming a famous musician. Currently, she's footloose, going wherever she pleases with her guitar.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Fuu in this story is considerably cynical and bitter, in contrast to her canon personality which is much more friendly and happy-go-lucky
* CynicismCatalyst: Her experiences during the 365 days left a sour impression on her.
* TheDrifter: From what Yugito tells Hinata in Chapter 43, Fuu was this before she became one of the Kyuushingai. In addition, Fuu has been living as this in the two-year period following the 365 days of terror.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: She's got issues with people's lack of gratitude for what she did in service to her country, during the 365 days, when she never expected to become a pariah as a member of the Kyuushingai. It leads to an angry MotiveRant when she's confronted about it by Tenten.
* GlorySeeker: Wanted stardom as a musician, and later wanted recognition and honor for having taken part in the government's training that gave birth to the Kyuushingai. That she got neither, because of the fallout from the 365 days, is a source of rage for her.
* GoodIsNotSoft: She doesn't think twice about shooting a couple of gangsters dead to save the protagonists.
* ICallItVera: She calls her guitar "Mariachi."
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A guitar that pulls double-duty as a musical instrument and a firearm.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Fuu has a machine gun hidden inside her guitar.
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Killing Tenten's parents believing she was getting rid of a biker gang]].
* TheResenter: She isn't harboring any friendly feelings toward Naruto since she blames him (and Gaara also) for certain events during the 365 days which led to Killer Bee's self-sacrifice.
* TookALevelInCynic: Prior to signing up for the training program that would eventually give birth to the Kyuushingai, Fuu was somewhat carefree. After the year of carnage, she became a ''lot'' more bitter.
* TragicKeepsake: Her guitar was a gift from Killer Bee.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: With Yugito, during their stint in the Kyuushingai.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]

!!Kira Hachi
A member of the Kyuushingai, who had the code-name "Gyuki the Bull." Also known as Killer Bee, a nickname he had adopted as an aspiring rapper before the 365 days. According to Yugito, he sacrificed himself to an angry mob near the end of that year, leading to the Nine Terrors disappearing.
* BerserkButton: Disrespecting his brother. Anybody doing that would be lucky if he ''only'' beat them to within an inch of their lives.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Just like his canon counterpart, he would often make up some really awful rap-rhymes, but he was still powerful enough to strong-arm his way through a rampaging mob.
* DeathByAdaptation: In canon, while Bee certainly came close to death a few times, he wound up surviving all the way to the end of the series. In this story, Bee reportedly sacrificed himself to an angry mob in an effort to appease escalating tensions over the actions of the Kyuushingai; this event is first mentioned by Yugito in Chapter 43, and then referenced again on different occasions thereafter. [[spoiler:Until Chapter 150's revelation that he's not quite so dead after all]].
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Foolish to Ay's responsible, by his own admission.
* DoNotCallMePaul: According to Yugito, Hachi insisted on being called Killer Bee instead of his real name, as Bee was the name he intended to use once he broke into the music business.
* LightningBruiser: Big, strong, and ''fast''.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's only ever really known as Killer Bee, with a number of fans having attributed proper given names to him. Kira Hachi is the name the author decided to call him for the purposes of this story, with Killer Bee as a nickname.
* PainfulRhyme: Much like his canon counterpart. Lampshaded by his brother Ay in a flashback, in which they were hiding from townspeople bent on killing the Kyuushingai:
--> '''Ay:''' Still making stupid rhymes, even at a time like this?
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: He and Ay are biologically brothers in this story, whereas in canon they're only brothers by way of symbolism.
* ScaryBlackMan: Largely averted, as he's remembered by those who knew him as being a very fun-loving sort. [[spoiler:Played straight when masquerading as Ay, however]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Akatsuki]]
A group of seven individuals (Yahiko, Kyusuke, Monjin, Deidara, Konan, Kakuzu, Hidan) who want revenge on the Kyuushingai for the events of the 365 days, which resulted in them being personally harmed or having lost friends or loved ones, and who are being supported in their endeavors by a so-far-undisclosed individual who furnishes them with instructions and information to carry out their mission.

Tropes about them as a group are immediately below; character-specific tropes follow underneath.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Only in the case of Yahiko, Kyusuke, Monjin, and Konan, who in canon were members of the original incarnation of Akatsuki, which was initially formed as a revolutionary group against tyranny in their native Amegakure. Deidara, Kakuzu and Hidan were already villains in canon.
* BadassBiker: Hidan and Kakuzu, most prominently, though Monjin and Kyusuke have also been shown to ride alongside them while storming the Suna City Prison. Yahiko is later shown to own and ride a chopper-style motorcycle.
* BadassLongcoat: The first time they're introduced together as a group, they're all wearing long black trench-coats with hoods. No red clouds on the coats, though.
* CarnivalOfKillers: Their members include a TrapMaster, a MadBomber, a MasterPoisoner, a GunNut, a TortureTechnician, a ScarilyCompetentTracker, and a MasterSwordsman.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: They may be villains who're out to kill the Kyuushingai, and they may commit murder and kidnapping to get that job done, but even they don't approve of Hidan's StalkerWithACrush tendencies toward his ex-girlfriend. Even Kakuzu, who leads a gun-barrage assault on a police station that results in several casualties, reacts with disdain to Hidan's obsession.
* HeroKiller: They almost kill Naruto ''twice'' [[spoiler:and successfully kill Roshi...at least, until the fifty-first Gaiden reveals him to be alive after all]].
* ItsPersonal: As stated above, the members of Akatsuki want to kill the Kyuushingai because they personally suffered as a result of the 365 days, or they lost loved ones during that time. However...
** ItsAllAboutMe: This tends to be the prevailing attitude of the less-sympathetic members, with Hidan being the worst of the lot and Kakuzu coming a very close second.
* ManBehindTheMan: Akatsuki's mysterious backer, whose face has so far been [[FaceFramedInShadow hidden in the shadows]].
* MurderInc: Their specific goal is the murder of the Kyuushingai.
* OddlySmallOrganization: They're only seven in number, but their underground activities were notable enough to grab the government's attention to the point that Yugito had to be sent to warn Naruto about them.
* StandardEvilOrganizationSquad: Except they don't see themselves as evil--see TautologicalTemplar below.
* TautologicalTemplar: The members of Akatsuki genuinely believe that the things they're doing to exact revenge on the Kyuushingai for the events of the 365 days will be for the benefit of the wider public in the long run. According to them, the Nine Terrors shrouded the region in darkness with their antics, so Akatsuki will restore light to the people by taking down the Terrors by any means necessary. Note that those means include kidnapping, murder, and torture.
--> '''Yahiko:''' We'll do what we have to do. The masses will agree with us, if not right now, then eventually. After all...it was the masses who suffered during the 365 days.

!!Yahiko
The leader of the group.
* AffablyEvil: Yahiko can talk quite casually about the incident that led to him disliking the Kyuushingai, and admits to Naruto that he doesn't really hate the blond boy personally, it's just that they're enemies because Naruto happens to be one of the Nine Terrors. He even openly admits that he finds Naruto's insulting humor to be ActuallyPrettyFunny. [[spoiler:Then he leaves Naruto to be tortured by Monjin]].
* BigEater: When Hidan proposes going to buy food for the group in Chapter 62, Yahiko's order for himself consists of a double-patty burger (heavy on the pickles and mayo) with a large serving of fries, plus two fish sandwiches. Lampshaded by Kakuzu moments later.
--> '''Kakuzu:''' I'm surprised you haven't gotten obese yet, with your eating habits.
* ColdSniper: He's proven to be very proficient with a sniper-rifle in Chapter 139.
* CompositeCharacter: This version of Yahiko essentially has Deva Path Pain's facial piercings and canon Yahiko's brown eyes and affable personality.
* CrusadingWidower: [[spoiler:His wife and children were trampled to death during a stampede caused by terror of the Kyuushingai in their town during the 365 days]].
* TheDragon: To Akatsuki's benefactor, as he's the one who receives and distributes or carries out the individual's instructions to the group.
* GunNut: Not to Kakuzu's extreme, but he's got a fair variety when it comes on to firearms. So far, we've seen him with two Browning 9mm pistols, a sniper-rifle, a pistol-grip shotgun, and a .357 Magnum pistol.
* GunsAkimbo: At one point, he arms himself with two Browning 9mm pistols, and holds one in each hand during a confrontation in Chapter 142.
* MalevolentMutilation: He's got his familiar piercings through his nose-bridge. In this universe, they were put there as a medical aid to help his facial bones heal after he got trampled by a stampede that happened in Ame Town during the 365 days [[spoiler:and that led to the deaths of his wife and children]].
* SlouchOfVillainy: Yahiko really likes reclining on couches.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:His black jacket with the red cloud on the back was a gift from his kids]].
* TrapMaster: He set up a complex trap involving trigger-switches for bombs inside Gaara's family mausoleum [[spoiler:and rigged his own house to blow up if it was ever broken into]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Orange Hair]]

!!Kyusuke
Yahiko's second-in-command and the resident sword specialist.
* BondVillainStupidity: Has to learn the hard way that talking is ''not'' a free action when one's opponent is a gunslinger.
* CrazyPrepared: Early in his confrontation with Itachi in Chapter 86, Kyusuke gets shot four times in the chest...only to reveal moments later that he was wearing a bulletproof vest under his shirt. Keep in mind, Kyusuke was there to kill Yugito, but had no prior idea he'd be facing Itachi, much less that Itachi would be packing heat. [[spoiler:Not that it keeps him from being shot in the leg later in the fight]].
* TheDragon: To Yahiko.
* MasterSwordsman: With [[KatanasAreJustBetter a katana]] being his preferred weapon [[spoiler:and what he uses to kill Utakata]].
* TheNondescript: Aside from [[RedRightHand his cat-like eyes]], Kyusuke's face is largely average-looking, as he himself mentally notes in Chapter 85.

!!Hidan
One of the stronger and crazier members of Akatsuki, he specializes in scythe-blades and shadowing of persons.
* AxCrazy
* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler:Stabs Kakashi in the chest and leaves him for dead without actually checking if he is in fact dead. This comes back to bite him when it's revealed Kakashi's ''Icha Icha'' book served as a PocketProtector]].
* DomesticAbuse: In his back-story, Hidan was this toward his girlfriend [[spoiler:Nohara Rin]]; it was so bad she actually had to take advantage of the Nine Terrors' rampage in their neighborhood on one particular night just to get away from him.
* ThePeepingTom: He set up a hidden camera in his ex-girlfriend's shower for voyeuristic spying.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: His specialty within Akatsuki.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: [[spoiler:Getting "[[AssShove a thousand years of pain]]" [[HoistByHisOwnPetard with your own knife]] will do that]].
* SinisterScythe: Although in this story he utilizes two short-handled kama blades instead of his more familiar giant three-bladed scythe. The author's post-chapter commentary explains that he couldn't think of a plausible way to incorporate the giant scythe into the story's setting without it being too cumbersome.
* SlasherSmile
* StalkerWithACrush: Hidan is this for the reporter Nohara Rin [[spoiler:who's also his ex-girlfriend]].
* VillainsOutShopping: In Chapter 62, Hidan goes out to buy food for Yahiko and Kyusuke.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* WouldHitAGirl: Whether the girl in question can fight back [[DomesticAbuse or not]].

!!Monjin
The group's torture and interrogation specialist.
* BerserkButton: Monjin has two--the Kyuushingai, and anyone [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas insulting his mother]]. [[spoiler:This is because his mother was one of the first casualties of the 365 days]]. And if you're a Kyuushingai ''and'' you trigger that second button...''boy howdy''.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Monjin has a wrist-equipped blade on one arm that he normally keeps hidden beneath his sleeve.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: [[spoiler:Monjin's mother was among the casualties in the initial slaughter that kicked off the 365 days. To this day, Monjin still doesn't take it well]].
* TortureTechnician: He uses his arm-blade to cut [[spoiler:the captive Naruto]] repeatedly [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique in order to get the names of the people affiliated with the Kyuushingai out of him]].

!!Deidara
The team's explosives expert.
* BlindedByTheLight: Deidara utilizes flash-bang grenades that have this effect, as part of his arsenal.
* CarryABigStick: Wields a baton for close-range combat.
* CombatPragmatist: He sees spitting in an opponent's eye as a perfectly viable combat strategy.
* EyeScream: The reason Deidara joined Akatsuki was because he lost an eye during the 365 days, although we're not told what exactly happened to result in him losing that eye. He covers the injury with an eye-patch.
* HandicappedBadass: He's blind in one eye from his experiences in the 365 days. He's still able to fight ''two'' of the Kyuushingai (Naruto and Roshi) simultaneously without strain.
* HavingABlast: Of course.
* KnifeNut: He's also armed with throwing knives.
* MadBomber: Natch. Instead of bomb-style jutsus, he uses real grenades and explosives that can be triggered via remote control.
* VerbalTic: Yes, he still has it, hmm!

!!Konan
The group's poison expert.
* BondVillainStupidity: She managed to ambush Naruto and poison him. If she hadn't stuck around afterward to try and kill him up close, he'd have been dead right there.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Konan lost her husband and her unborn child during the 365 days]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Konan was an ordinary nurse before the 365 days. Following that incident and the trauma she underwent as a result of it, she put her medical skill to use as an assassin in Akatsuki's employ.
* MasterPoisoner: [[JustifiedTrope It's a skill she developed from her time as a nurse]]. She concocts a poison which she uses on Naruto (via dart to the neck) during their confrontation in Chapter 46 [[spoiler:and which she'd used to kill Roshi in the previous chapter]].
--> '''Konan:''' The weakness you're feeling and your loss of voice are only the first symptoms...in another minute, you'll experience nerve numbness; in five minutes, inability to swallow; in ten minutes, gradual bodily paralysis beginning with the hands and spreading elsewhere. In fifteen minutes, you'll die without the antidote.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: As in canon, Konan is the only female in the group.
* VengefulWidow: [[spoiler:Her husband's death, and the miscarriage she suffered from the stress of that event, led to her joining Akatsuki to get revenge]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Kakuzu
The team's gun enthusiast, he also excels at photographing targets.
* {{BFG}}: M60 machine gun.
* CovertPervert: Kakuzu expresses a wish to see the camera footage of Hidan's ex-girlfriend in the shower...moments after [[HypocriticalHumor scolding Hidan for breaking into the woman's house to set up the hidden camera in the first place]].
--> '''Hidan:''' [[LampshadeHanging Hypocrite]].
* GatlingGood: Makes good use of an M60 machine gun during his calculated assault on the Konoha precinct.
* GlasgowGrin: As in canon. In this story, his scars are stated to be as a result of his being a victim of the 365 days.
* GunNut: He comes to the impending siege on the Konoha Town police station with a whole pickup truck full of guns, not only for his own use, but also to provide weaponry to the Hawks gang.
* ManipulativeBastard: Granted, it didn't take the Hawk gang much to agree to help him besiege the Konoha precinct, considering the police were holding the Kyuushingai who happened to shoot up several of the gang's members sometime earlier.
* MoreDakka: Kakuzu carries an Uzi as his sidearm, and in his fight with Fuu wields an ''M60 machine gun''.

[[folder:LOVE]]
LOVE is an underground crime syndicate led by former Kyuushingai member Ishida Gaara and his siblings, Kankuro and Temari, and overseen by its top strike force, the Council of the Dawn (members Matsuri, Darui, Chojuro, Kurotsuchi, Menma, Yura, Sumaru, and newest recruit and fellow Kyuushingai member Yagura). LOVE is stated to have operatives in different sectors of society, and in recent history they have begun production and distribution of Gaara's new drug-pill, Gold Sand, plus being involved in other types of crime across the region. Each member of the Council of the Dawn holds a specific seat named after a natural element, with matching medallions assigned to them whenever they have meetings together. Their overall goals so far remain shrouded in mystery, though they appear to be manipulating certain events from behind the scenes...

Tropes relating to the group as a whole, and to the field operatives identified by their code-names during the story, are listed immediately below; character-specific tropes for the Council of the Dawn are listed further down.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Just about every member of LOVE, particularly those who make up the Council of the Dawn, was on the heroes' side in canon.[[note]]Gaara, Kankuro and Temari started out as antagonists during the Chuunin Exam arc but later underwent a HeelFaceTurn and became allies of Konoha, with Gaara in particular becoming one of Naruto's closest friends. Matsuri was a love interest for Gaara and also joined him and his siblings as an ally to Konoha and the other villages during the Fourth Great Ninja War. Chojuro, Darui and Kurotsuchi (of the Hidden Mist, Hidden Cloud and Hidden Stone villages, respectively) were allies of Konoha during said war. Yagura, while having a reputation as a bloodthirsty leader during his time as the Fourth Mizukage, was later revealed to have been [[PuppetKing manipulated]] from behind the scenes, and wasn't really genuinely evil at all. Sumaru was a filler character and native of Hoshigakure who started out rude and aloof, but later became a friend to Naruto. Yura and Menma are more of the GreyAndGrayMorality range, as Yura, a Sunagakure native, was revealed to be a sleeper agent for Sasori but was nonetheless loyal to Sunagakure, and Menma was a filler character who inflicted LaserGuidedAmnesia on himself after taking part in the slaughter of a village, and at the end of his arc pulled a RedemptionEqualsDeath when that effort failed. Where the field agents are concerned, none of them were ever identified as being outright evil in canon; three of them were affiliated with Konoha, one was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces, one was a filler ally of Naruto's, and one was a civilian (Nagato's father Ise) who was killed during an attack on the Hidden Rain Village by Konoha's forces in the back-story.[[/note]]
* BadassCrew: Most members of the Council of the Dawn are leaders of their own criminal groups besides. That's without factoring in that two of the Council members are former Kyuushingai.
* BigFancyHouse: Gaara and his siblings own a summer estate that they use when chairing meetings of the Council of the Dawn, and that is maintained by Matsuri in their absence. The mansion itself is a three-story building in the style of a Victorian-era mansion, painted blue with some sections designed using unpainted cut-stone and marl. It also has a courtyard with a large water fountain and a roundabout driveway, and the property is surrounded by fruit trees, a greenhouse, and a cliff-side view of the ocean.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: As explained in Chapter 101, while the group might engage in a variety of crimes, they draw the line at rape or any other kind of sexual assault. They have a [[PragmaticVillainy practical reason]] for this, as LOVE employs female members and they wouldn't be able to do that if they sanctioned rape. [[spoiler:Sumaru's failure to make sure his gang members adhered to this, including reports that he sanctioned [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty what they wanted to do to the captive Hana and Hokuto]], leads to him and them getting killed by Matsuri]].
* IslandBase: The above-mentioned BigFancyHouse where LOVE holds its council-meetings is located on the outskirts of Whirl City, which is situated on an island in Water County, far removed from the continent's mainland.
* NiceToTheWaiter: Most members of the Council see nothing strange in helping their subordinates, even Matsuri's house servants. For instance, when one servant stumbles and is in danger of dropping the centerpiece for the group's dinner, Matsuri, Darui and Chojuro are quick to grab the tray and keep it from spilling.
* StandardEvilOrganizationSquad: The Council of the Dawn acts as this, given that its members are all engaged in criminal activity geared toward furthering LOVE's interests.
* TheSyndicate: LOVE as a whole is this.
* WeAreEverywhere: As Gaara indicates to Yagura when first recruiting him.
---> '''Gaara:''' LOVE has snaked its way everywhere in the last two years, Yagura-san.
** This is later proven by the existence of the named field agents, Hawk's Eye, Death Iris, Dolphin, Ring-Eyes, Perimeter and Echo. Their civilian jobs are (respectively) a courthouse bailiff, a restaurant waitress, a police officer, a hotel employee, a maid, and a telecommunications service rep.
* {{Yakuza}}: LOVE has some of these as contacts.

!!Ishida Gaara
A former member of the Kyuushingai, with the code-name "Shukaku the Raccoon." Two years after the 365 days, he is the leader of the underground syndicate LOVE. As chairman of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Lacuna[[note]]Void[[/note]].
* AffablyEvil: When he's being friendly or at least civil to someone he considers an adversary, it's not a put-on. For instance, he's fairly chummy toward Yugito and Itachi, despite them being openly hostile to him, when he shows himself to them at the Konoha High School music recital, and when he meets Hinata much later, he's quite polite while still letting her know he's not a nice guy.
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer: He's the main one in the story, as he's the man behind Gold Sand, a drug of his own creation. He wants to increase LOVE's power-base through distribution of the drug across the region.
* AmbitionIsEvil: In Chapter 48, Naruto recalls that Gaara wanted to use the knowledge he'd gained from training as a Kyuushingai to take control of the entire region.
* ArchEnemy: Is indicated to be this for Naruto. [[spoiler:It's revealed that the 365 days got kicked off when Naruto confronted Gaara over an as-yet-unrevealed plot the latter was preparing to implement that would have resulted in numerous deaths, making Gaara the underlying factor behind the year of chaos that followed]].
* ArmorPiercingAttack: His Twin Tanuki Fist technique, designed to break the target's ribs.
* BerserkButton: Endangering [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes his uncle Yashamaru]], the only relative he and his siblings have left following the deaths of their parents. [[spoiler:Learning that Minato gave LOVE's missile-beacons to Yashamaru results in Gaara popping several Gold Sand pills and trying repeatedly to kill Naruto]].
* BigBad: One of two candidates along with Akatsuki's mysterious backer. Among other things, he's made it possible for Yagura and his Blood Mist Gang to attack Naruto and his friends, and he's the creator and main supplier of the Gold Sand drug that's taken the focus of the most recent chapters. On top of which, his LOVE organization is stated to have recruits [[WeAreEverywhere in every facet of society]]. [[spoiler:And in the past, he was masterminding a plot that would have resulted in mass casualties, and Naruto's opposition to it and attempted stopping of it led to the 365 days]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: His only desire is to take over the government [[spoiler:as revenge for framing his parents for treason]], and he will murder or manipulate anyone in his way in order to accomplish that, the feelings of his victims be damned in the process. As he bluntly tells Hinata when they meet, not even a person as nice as her would be able to prevent him from carrying out his plan. However, in flashbacks, it's shown that despite not getting along with Naruto while they were training together, Gaara was still willing to [[WeCanRuleTogether offer him a chance to rule the country together]], only really turning his hostility onto Naruto when the other boy violently rejected his proposal.
* BondVillainStupidity: Both Temari and Matsuri are concerned that Gaara might be afflicted by this, as he hasn't just killed Naruto outright as they feel would be the better thing for him to do to get rid of his only viable opposition.
* CreepyMonotone: Often, though he's certainly capable of showing emotion.
* CulturedBadass / WickedCultured: He knows how to enjoy classical music, and will go out of his way to attend a music recital if it'll interest him. At the same time, he was a member of the Kyuushingai ''and'' the leader of the LOVE syndicate.
* DeathGlare: He's good at displaying this, as evidenced during Chapter 187 when he [[TranquilFury calmly]] chews out Matsuri for acting on her own and potentially endangering LOVE's larger mission. During that particular dressing-down, Matsuri pointedly avoids making eye-contact with him for fear that, if she sees the anger that's coating his tone, she'll actually drop dead right there.
* DiabolicalMastermind: Aside from everything else that's been listed about him here so far, he had a plan that would have, according to him, involved a lot of deaths under controlled circumstances with the aim of taking over the region. However, Naruto's intervention and the 365 days prevented that from happening. [[spoiler:Except that he was able to use the chaos and panic generated by the 365 days as a frame for his original plan anyway--while unplanned by him, and resulting in more deaths than he'd intended, the populace's resulting fear still ended up working in his favor. Helping this is the fact that Kankuro and Temari went out and incited several gangs to go to war with each other, compounding that region-wide terror further]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: When his uncle Yashamaru is taken captive in Chapter 132, Gaara is quick to go with Kankuro and Temari to rescue him.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Gaara is the leader of the criminal LOVE organization and is willing to team up with fellow criminal Yagura to attack Naruto and his friends, when he confronts Han he is at least willing to accede to Han's request that violence not be perpetrated inside the church where they're at.
* EvilCounterpart: To Naruto. Both of them trained together in the program that would lead them to becoming members of the Nine Terrors, but they couldn't be any more different: Gaara lost both of his parents, while Naruto's parents are still alive; Gaara wanted to use his newly-gained skills to take over the country, while Naruto wanted to use his skills in service to said country; Gaara doesn't care about the number of people he killed during the 365 days or after, while Naruto [[TheAtoner can never forget the exact number he personally killed during the year of terror]]; and Gaara has used his skills following the 365 days to become a crime boss, while Naruto largely hides his talents so as not to unduly alarm the public.
* EvilRedhead
* FaceFramedInShadow: How he's first introduced in Chapter 33, before being properly revealed in Chapter 39.
* FantasticDrug: Gaara is the creator of the Gold Sand drug, which [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer he wants to use to take control of the country]]. Although the effects of the drug tend to vary depending on how it's applied, Gaara at least has no qualms about using it himself.
* FieryRedhead: Largely averted; although he is a redhead, he usually keeps quite calm and even-tempered, and even when he's angry [[TranquilFury he's still calm about it]]. [[spoiler:Until his VillainousBreakdown, at which point it's played straight]].
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has a scar on his forehead from when Naruto smashed him head-first onto a drinking glass. Due to how the glass splintered when it cut him, the scar is shaped like his iconic "love" kanji-mark.
* HeroKiller: Attempted twice with Han, but failed both times. The first time, Han actually was close to dying afteyr Gaara left him bleeding and unconscious in the alley outside Han's soup kitchen, but Fuu nursed him back to health; and the second time, Gaara overpowered Han and would have killed him right there if he hadn't been interrupted [[spoiler:by Fuu being thrown off Kira's rooftop]]. He later demonstrates that he could easily do this with Naruto, only restraining himself because he wants Naruto to see firsthand the culmination of Gaara's take-over plot; and in the second part of their battle, Gaara makes no less than ''three'' attempts to kill Naruto, only failing because Naruto manages to counter his efforts in time.
* IGaveMyWord: And he always keeps it.
* ImprobableAge: 15 years old, and he's been head of a criminal syndicate for two years. Of course, he does have his siblings as his CoDragons, and they're both older than him.
* ItsAllAboutMe: As long as he can get his objectives fulfilled, everyone else can burn for all he cares.
* ManipulativeBastard: As outlined in Chapter 101, he was able to accumulate a sizable fortune and take over numerous companies by way of threats and blackmail...and that was ''before'' he underwent the Kyuushingai training program. [[spoiler:He also had Kankuro and Temari spread a lot of misinformation to the different gangs in the region immediately after the start of the 365 days, resulting in the mass slaughter that followed when the gangs attacked each other, and this resulted in the Kyuushingai being blamed for the resulting deaths]].
* MilitaryBrat: Both of his parents were in the military; his father was captain of his own unit, and his mother was a driver.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, Gaara's family name (assuming there is one to speak of) has never been revealed. His surname in this story comes from the name of his Japanese voice actor.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast / RedBaron: According to the draft-notes, aside from his Kyuushingai epithet of "Shukaku the Raccoon," Gaara was known as the "Blood-Haired Butcher." He doesn't actually get called this in the story proper, however.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Most of his appearances so far have consisted of him sitting on his throne in his lair, in some cases deep in thought, before engaging in conversation with one of his lackeys. He has gotten up twice so far, though, and each time has been significant. [[spoiler:The first time, he fought Han and left him for dead; the second time, he attended Konoha High's music recital and left a message for Naruto with Yugito and Itachi]].
* PragmaticVillain: The only reason Naruto has not been shot by a sniper yet is that Gaara won't waste LOVE's resources on a personal grudge unless Naruto starts directly opposing his operations (not that he intends to let him live the easy life). He's also investigating on the mysterious backer of Akatsuki, as whoever knows the identities of the Kyuushingai is most likely a danger to LOVE and Gaara.
* TheResenter: The real reason he hates Naruto, as revealed during the Endgame arc. When they both came into their government-backed training program, Gaara joined up as part of his plan to pursue national conquest and revenge [[spoiler:against the government for framing his parents for treason]], while Naruto joined up out of an optimistic eagerness to serve his country. That Naruto had both parents still alive while Gaara was continually mourning his parents' deaths didn't help the situation any.
--> '''Gaara:''' So naïve...so optimistic...so cheerful...bad enough you were so happy while I was miserable, but to have the nerve to be happy because you had everything I didn’t--there’s no way I could ever forgive you for that!
* SiblingsInCrime: With Temari and Kankuro.
* SlasherSmile: Sports a rather sinister one during his fight with Naruto in the final arc [[spoiler:after he's swallowed three Gold Sand pills in the midst of his VillainousBreakdown, on top of the one he'd previously taken to give himself an edge]].
* SoftSpokenSadist: He's not one for raising his voice in any situation, even if he's angry. [[spoiler:Except when under the effects of Gold Sand]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: According to Yashamaru, Gaara was this before his parents' deaths. Finding out exactly how they died caused a very significant change in him.
* VillainousFriendship: With Yagura, including prior to the 365 days.
* VisionaryVillain: He envisions order created through chaos, as he explains in Chapter 101. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the plan he was going to implement before Naruto confronted him had this in mind...but despite that plan being halted, Gaara was still able to take advantage of the chaos and fear generated by the 365 days, which ended up firmly establishing the framework for his plan anyway--he now plans to take advantage of the public's desire not to have a repeat of that period]].
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: [[spoiler:After dosing up on Gold Sand pills during his VillainousBreakdown, going hand-in-hand with a SlasherSmile]].

!!Ishida Temari
Gaara's older sister and his second-in-command and personal bodyguard in LOVE. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, she holds the seat of Beacon[[note]]Light[[/note]].
* BodyguardingABadass: Both she and Kankuroo do this with Gaara.
* ColdSniper: She tries to kill Naruto and Chief Kaiza with a sniper-rifle in Chapter 171. [[spoiler:Fortunately, Naruto had the foresight to wear a metal plate behind a bandanna over his forehead]].
* CoolBigSis: Toward Matsuri.
* CoolCar: She drives a red BMW Sedan to chauffeur Gaara in Chapter 100.
* DarkActionGirl: Natch.
* TheDragon: To Gaara. Also CoDragons with Kankuro.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Like Gaara and Kankuro, she cares about their uncle Yashamaru. Makes sense, seeing he was their ParentalSubstitute.
* MilitaryBrat: Same as Gaara.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her belief, concerning the best way to keep Naruto from opposing LOVE.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Gaara's entry above.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: She strongly believes Gaara should just murder Naruto and get rid of a potential opponent to LOVE's goals, and is highly displeased when Gaara vetoes her suggestions to that effect.
* SiblingsInCrime: With Gaara and Kankuro.

!!Ishida Kankuro
Gaara's older brother and one of his lieutenants and in LOVE, he serves as an information-gatherer and sometime-bodyguard for his brother. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Shadow[[note]]Darkness[[/note]].
* AllMenArePerverts: His response to Yura's explanation that the latter's syndicate hosts MudWrestling events: "You mind inviting me to one of those mud-wrestling shows sometime?" complete with a big grin.
* BadassBookworm: It takes a certain amount of smarts to be able to create his mechanical animal-scouts [[spoiler:plus a fake corpse and a bomb]]. Kankuro himself is ''brutal'' in a one-on-one fight.
* BodyguardingABadass: Both he and Temari do this with Gaara.
* BrainyBrunette: He'd have to be brainy to build the things he does as well as he does.
* DarkIsEvil: Wears a black hooded cloak.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As with Gaara and Temari above, Kenkuro cares for their uncle Yashamaru.
* EvilGenius: By his own description. Also CoDragons with Temari.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mainly toward Matsuri.
* ManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:He provided the Spiral Reaper's equipment]].
* MilitaryBrat: Same as Gaara.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Gaara's entry above.
* RobotMaster: He collects information and relays messages through mechanical animals of his own creation, most notably a mechanical cat that had an outer skin to make it identical to an actual cat, in order to make contact with Yagura. He's introduced in Chapter 32 using a robotic bird [[spoiler:to spy on Naruto's fight with Sasuke]], though he isn't identified by name until Chapter 39.
* SiblingsInCrime: With Gaara and Temari.

!!Yagura
A former member of the Kyuushingai, with the code-name "Isobu the Turtle." He is a gang leader who hails from Mist City and is the leader of the infamous Blood Mist gang. When first introduced in the main timeline, he's accepting an invitation from Gaara to join forces with LOVE, specifically as the primary distributor of Gaara's Gold Sand drug, and is later inducted into LOVE's Council of the Dawn as the holder of the seat of Frost[[note]]Ice[[/note]].
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer: He jumps on board when Gaara offers to make him the primary dealer with control over 90 percent of the profit from the sale of Gaara's "merchandise."
* AllCrimesAreEqual: He believes that sexual crimes are no different from other types of crime. The rest of the Council [[EvenEvilHasStandards proceeds to explain why that won't fly with them]].
* BreakTheHaughty: Starts happening to him from the moment [[spoiler:Hinata]], who clearly shouldn't be able to match him in a straight-up fight, manages to fend him off, even conking him with a frying pan in the process. [[HumiliationConga Following that]], he gets several pot-shots to the crotch during his fight with Yugito, he gets dunked into a pool, he has a murder attempt foiled ''and'' his balls squeezed to subdue him, several onlookers take photos and videos of said ball-squeezing...
* DisappearedDad: In his back-story, his father, who was a career criminal, was shot to death by the police.
* TheDreaded: His name is well known even to the ordinary citizens of Konoha Town. Keep in mind, this is ''without'' his Kyuushingai status being public knowledge.
--> '''Haku:''' I've heard of that guy...his crimes are ghastly.
* FantasticDrug: He's the main peddler of the Gold Sand drug-pill for Gaara.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His facial scar, here having been given to him by Naruto.
* JuryAndWitnessTampering: Among Yagura's many atrocities as leader of the Blood Mist gang, it's revealed that he caused the disappearances of several key witnesses in a case where he was charged with the gangland slaying of six men in one night.
* KnifeNut: While at the Hyuga mansion, he gleefully wields a meat-cleaver and a steak-knife, one in each hand.
* LowerClassLout: Chapter 40, his introductory chapter, explicitly states that he grew up in poverty as the son of a prostitute, and he and the Blood Mist Gang reside in a run-down building in Mist City's Seppuku Society neighborhood. It's emphasized when he meets Gaara for dinner in the same chapter, as while Gaara orders a venison steak, potato salad, pasta with mushroom sauce, and a pineapple-banana blended drink, Yagura makes a simpler order of a hamburger with extra onions, hash browns, chicken nuggets with sweet-and-sour sauce, and a cola, despite them being in a very luxurious restaurant where he could order something more expensive on Gaara's dime.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast / RedBaron: As Chapter 62 reveals, one of his nicknames is "the Butcher of the Valley of the Shadow of Death." Later chapters establish that he has a shorter nickname, "the Mist City Butcher," which is no less intimidating.
* SonOfAWhore: Yagura was raised by his mother, who provided "escort services."
* TakingTheBullet: How he got his facial scar. During the fight that kick-started the 365 days, he pushed Gaara out of the way of a meat-cleaver thrown by Naruto and took the blade in his own face instead.
* VillainousFriendship: With Gaara, including prior to the 365 days.
* WouldHitAGirl: If he's of a mind to kill you, having a vagina won't save you.
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:He would have murdered Hanabi if not for Neji's intervention]].

!!Matsuri
The secretary of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, she organizes the group's meetings at Gaara's behest, and cares for the summer house where the meetings are usually held. As a member of the Council, she holds the seat of Zephyr[[note]]Wind[[/note]].
* BattleButler: She is the head maidservant in charge of the other servants at the Ishida siblings' summer house, in addition to being the Council of the Dawn's secretary. She is also a skilled assassin in her own right, having been trained by Temari.
* BerserkButton: Sexual crimes and anyone who commits them. [[spoiler:It stems from her having been raped by her step-uncle in her back-story. Because of it, she has Yagura kill Aoi for his AttemptedRape of Ino, and personally kills Sumaru for sanctioning his goons' near-assault on Hana]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's not above lending assistance to the house-servants she supervises, and they in turn see her as a kindhearted young woman. That said, if you anger her, particularly by way of her BerserkButton, you're going to get a needle in your chest.
* BrainyBrunette: Well, she ''is'' the one managing the affairs of the Council on Gaara's behalf.
* EvilCounterpart: To Hinata. They're both in charge of the servants of their respective households, they both got training from Kyuushingai (Hinata by Yugito, Matsuri by Gaara and his siblings), they're both highly intelligent and cultured (Hinata plays the piano and is an expert dancer, Matsuri oversees her servants' gardening and manages the Dawn Council's affairs, and both of them have some skill in the kitchen), they both lost family members by death (Hinata lost her mother and paternal uncle, Matsuri lost both parents), they're both polite to and respected by their peers...but while Hinata was trained to fight so that she could protect herself and her loved ones and not have to be TheLoad, Matsuri was trained to fight for the sake of vengeance [[spoiler:for her step-uncle raping her]], and whereas Hinata upholds a genuinely sweet personality and rarely lets anything aggravate her despite the traumas she's faced, Matsuri's experiences have left her with a bitterness that she hides behind a poised and professional mask.
* GreenEyedMonster: She has this toward Hinata, as Gaara forces her to admit late into the story. Specifically, she's jealous of what she perceives as Hinata not having to go through anything more serious than [[MissingMom her mother's death]] due to being rich and privileged, while Matsuri herself didn't exactly have a good adolescence [[spoiler:what with losing her parents, then being raped by her step-uncle and forced to run away from home]]. Under said duress from Gaara, Matsuri has to elaborate further that she feels this way because, from her point of view, Hinata is the most sheltered of Naruto's friends, considering that even Ino, Sakura and Tenten have had trauma and struggles of their own to deal with (respectively, [[spoiler:Ino almost being raped by Aoi, Sakura having to live with the social stigma coming from her father's involvement with the creation of the Kyuushingai, and Tenten being orphaned during the 365 days]], none of which Hinata has had to endure).
* SilkHidingSteel: A rather dark example. She's obedient to Gaara's wishes, but she's not one bit afraid of Yagura, despite his bloody reputation, and lays down the terms by which she'll accept him as the newest member of the Council: [[spoiler:he has to kill Rokusho Aoi, since the latter is guilty of AttemptedRape and Yagura was the one who appointed him as Konoha Town's Gold Sand distributor in the first place]].
* TraumaCongaLine: She suffered this in her back-story prior to meeting Gaara and his siblings. [[spoiler:[[ParentalAbandonment Losing her parents in a car crash]] because the other driver ran the red light, being [[RapeAsBackstory raped]] by her step-uncle, not being believed by her aunt and ''then'' being slapped for calling said aunt out on [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on the step-uncle]] (which contributed to the rape in the first place), being forced to run away from home due to certainty that [[VillainWithGoodPublicity the step-uncle's apparent good character]] would shield him from prosecution, being assaulted and almost raped by three hoodlums...[[FreudianExcuse she's had it rough]]]].
* YamatoNadeshiko: Very deferential and respectful, using the "-sama" honorific for Gaara and his siblings and the "-san" honorific for Yagura, but she isn't afraid to let her views be known in very uncertain terms.

!!Chojuro
A smuggler who controls the shipping industry in Water County's Wave division. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Ocean[[note]]Water[[/note]].
* AdjustingYourGlasses
* CarryABigStick: His WeaponOfChoice is a black billy-club.
* KnockoutGas: He utilizes gas pellets that emit this in the form of white smoke, for the purpose of incapacitating targets while he and his gang can then commit a robbery unmolested.
* RuthlessModernPirates: His usual schtick.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Sumaru
The newest member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn before Yagura joined the group, he is the leader of the Whirl City-based Star-Boys Gang, specializing in stolen motor vehicle parts, and also has history with Naruto. As a member of the Council, he holds the seat of Mineral[[note]]Metal[[/note]].
* BadassBiker
* BastardBoyfriend: Was this to his girlfriend Hokuto, as recounted by Naruto when reminiscing about the fateful incident at Uzushio High School in Chapter 93.
* BoisterousWeakling: Unfortunately for him, this is all he turns out to be when up against a ''seasoned'' fighter like Naruto. Even having a pistol as a weapon doesn't help him too much, though to his credit he manages to hold his own for a few minutes when he and Naruto have their rematch in the Vengeance arc.
* JerkAss: Yup.
* WouldHitAGirl: In Naruto's flashback detailing the Uzushio High incident, Hokuto begged Sumaru to just drop his rage against Naruto; his response was to slap her hard enough to knock her down. In the present day, he slaps the captive Hana after she mouths off to him.

!!Kurotsuchi
The leader of Iwa City's Blackstone Mafia. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, she holds the seat of Infero[[note]]Fire[[/note]].
* ACupAngst: Naruto attempts to invoke this by bringing up Kurotsuchi's lack of curves. For her part, though, while she's visibly affected, Kurotsuchi manages not to flip out.
* ArcVillain: Of the Spa Inferno arc.
* CounterfeitCash: One of her personal syndicate's keynote activities is the manufacturing and distribution of fake cash. According to her, the fakes are so well-made even banks have trouble telling them apart from the genuine thing.
* DirtyCop: Her personal organization has plenty of these on the payroll.
* FireBreathingWeapon: Her WeaponOfChoice is a flamethrower that she got on the black market.
* JuryAndWitnessTampering: Mabui relates a story to Mikoto and Yugao that's been circulating in the city for some time, about an honest cop who, a year prior to the main story, arrested Kurotsuchi for one of her crimes; the cop subsequently "disappeared" the week before he was slated to give evidence against her.
* KillItWithFire: At one point she sends a bunch of goons to burn down Mabui's spa [[DisproportionateRetribution because Mabui wouldn't sell the property to her]]. This is also her own ''modus operandi'' when equipped with her flamethrower. [[spoiler:She's even willing to ''set her own house on fire'' in an effort to roast Naruto inside]].
* TheMafia: The Blackstone Mafia, to be exact.
* TheQueenpin: She's this to the Blackstone Mafia, having significant control over the criminal happenings in Iwa City, plus having half the local police force in her back pocket (the other half's too scared to take direct action against her, given her ruthlessness).

!!Darui
A gang boss whose primary turf is in Kumo City, where he specializes in protection rackets. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Thunderbolt[[note]]Lightning[[/note]].
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Well, not blond, but white hair, at least.
* IGaveMyWord: Makes a promise [[spoiler:to give himself up to the police and quit his protection racket]] if Ino, Shikamaru and Choji can knock him out, and he follows through on his end of the bargain.
* LightningBruiser
* MellowFellow: For a gang leader, at least.
* PragmaticVillain: Doesn't want to fight in the stores, otherwise they'd risk closing and he'd lose money.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart

!!Menma
A marijuana dealer with drug-processing plants in Kusa and Taki Towns on the border of Earth County. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Jungle[[note]]Forest, Nature or Plant[[/note]].
* AffablyEvil: Courteous, polite, and even when he reveals his true nature to Naruto, he is very professional.
* TheAggressiveDrugDealer
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: It's blond, it's shoulder-length, and his canon counterpart certainly wasn't bad-looking.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: He packs [[HandCannon a Smith and Wesson 460 revolver]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He's the financial sponsor for Taki Town's local Dragons basketball team, and he's loved by both the team and the locals for it.

!!Yura
A real estate developer whose criminal activities involve selling land to small-tier crime bosses, his turf is in Yu and Shimo Cities in Lightning County. As a member of LOVE's Council of the Dawn, he holds the seat of Clay[[note]]Earth[[/note]].
* BeardOfEvil: Sports a pointed chin-goatee.
* BloodSport: He runs these as part of his unique criminal empire, both the bare-knuckle and [[BeastlyBloodsports dog-fighting]] varieties.
* CombatPragmatist: During his fight with Kakashi in Chapter 131, Yura pulls off his coat and throws it on Kakashi's head, distracting the teacher long enough for the villain to get in some licks. He's also not afraid to [[GroinAttack kick below the belt]] or KickThemWhileTheyAreDown.
* CoolCar: He owns an orange Lamborghini Aventador limousine.
* CovertPervert: He gives a little smirk when mentioning his MudWrestling fights that his syndicate operates.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He refuses to deal in stolen art, preferring to acquire any art pieces that he owns the legal way, as he sees no value in holding onto artwork that wasn't acquired honestly.
* MudWrestling: His syndicate hosts these types of bouts alongside the above-mentioned BloodSport fights, but these ones are "for the dirtier minds."
* PeekABangs: His hair is combed so as to cover one eye.
* WhiteCollarCrime: What he essentially facilitates.
* WouldHitAGirl: Physically assaults Karui during the Underground Fists arc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Antagonists]]
This list consists of antagonists Naruto and his friends have to face in the main story who aren't members of the Kyuushingai, Akatsuki, LOVE, or students/teachers of Konoha High School; enemies under those designations are in the appropriate folders above. (Enemies introduced in the Gaiden chapters are in that specific character-folder below.)

!!Mizuki
A local crime kingpin in Konoha Town, who ruled much of the area with an iron fist by claiming he was a member of the Kyuushingai. Then Naruto, an ''actual'' Kyuushingai, showed up...
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* BadassBiker
* CopKiller: He was able to keep up the impression that he was a Kyuushingai by being this.
* StarterVillain: He's the very first antagonist Naruto faces, just like he was in the canon series.
* TokenMotivationalNemesis: Besides being the StarterVillain, Mizuki was both antagonizing Ino's family and pretending to be a Kyuushingai, two things Naruto had to swiftly deal with in order to bring peace back to Konoha Town during his first few days there. Mizuki would return in a later arc to get revenge.

!!Dosu, Zaku and Kin
Three recurring members of Mizuki's gang.
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* TerribleTrio
* TwoGuysAndAGirl
* WouldHitAGirl: Dosu and Zaku prove this when they break into Kushina's house.

!!Rokusho Aoi
A senior student and, when first introduced, the head of Konoha High's Hall Monitors Guild. After being exposed as an abusive gangster, he got stripped of his Hall Monitor position and was summarily expelled from school. He has since gone on to be a recurring thorn in Naruto's side.
* AscendedExtra: He was a filler villain in Part 1 of the canon series. Here, he's a major supporting character.
* AssholeVictim: Considering the atrocities he pulls from his first moment in the story, one doesn't feel ''too'' sorry for him when he winds up becoming a ButtMonkey [[spoiler:or even when he's beaten to death by Yagura in Chapter 136]].
* TheBully: While he was enrolled at Konoha High, and even after being expelled. He also heads a GangOfBullies comprising the members of Konoha High's Hall Monitors Guild.
* ButtMonkey: For all the vile stuff he does, he's had quite a run of rotten luck to accompany his evil track record. He's subjected to [[CurbStompBattle quite a few curb-stompings]] throughout his appearances. He's only ever been in ''one'' fight that he actually ''won'', and even then he got subject to a CurbStompBattle shortly afterward in revenge for the outcome of that fight. He had his advances on a woman publicly rejected. And then on one occasion [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a bird rested on top of his head]].
* CasanovaWannabe: He tries a lame pick-up line on a woman in Chapter 4, who not only brushes him off by saying she already has a boyfriend, but also threatens to call the police if he doesn't leave her alone. Aoi doesn't take the rejection well.
--> '''Aoi:''' I'm the chief of hall monitors at Konoha High! And what I want, I will have!
* DrunkWithPower: When he was leader of the Hall Monitors Guild.
* KnifeNut: On two occasions he's brought a knife into combat against his opponents...problem is, [[NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight those opponents were Naruto and Itachi]].
* SocialDarwinist: Aoi believes that the strong have every right to rule over the weak. When he was the chief hall monitor at Konoha High School, he would use this to justify being TheBully to weaker students. Unfortunately for him, he's forced to be on the receiving end of his own philosophy when Naruto [[CurbStompBattle utterly trounces him]] in Chapter 5 and when Shikamaru [[OneHitKO fells him with one punch]] in Chapter 27.
* StrawMisogynist: Exceptionally so.
* TeenyWeenie: During a nasty beat-down from Sai [[spoiler:while thwarting Aoi's attempt to rape Ino]], Aoi gets a painful [[GroinAttack crotch-squeeze]] which reveals he's got...shortcomings.
* WouldHitAGirl: Especially if they reject his advances or defy his say-so.
* WouldHurtAChild: His EstablishingCharacterMoment in Chapter 4 has him forcing Udon (here a first-year high school student) to publicly kiss his feet, and then using his foot to kick Udon aside, all because the kid [[DisproportionateRetribution accidentally bumped into him]].

!!The Hall Monitors Guild
A gang of senior boys from Konoha High School, primarily led by Rokusho Aoi, though they've also acted on their own initiative at different points in the story. Five of them--Yoshida Sanjiro, Bunzo, Yudachi, Urushi, and Saisu--get special focus in the fifteenth Gaiden.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, Bunzo was one of the members of the original incarnation of Akatsuki under the leadership of Nagato, Yahiko and Konan; and Urushi was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Yudachi has a scar on his right cheek, and he's definitely ''not'' a good guy.
* HiredGuns: They serve this purpose in the fifteenth Gaiden. In all other appearances, they're Aoi's henchmen.
* KillItWithFire: In the fifteenth Gaiden, they try to do this to Naruto and Kushina with a plan to burn down the Uzumaki house with the two would-be victims inside while they're asleep. Unfortunately for them, Minato ''almost'' turns it around on them.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Sanjiro wasn't named in canon (he was the green-haired ninja who would later be used as the basis for Pain's first Animal Path). Bunzo was likewise unnamed in canon.
* StrawMisogynist: Following in Aoi's footsteps.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Sanjiro has green hair.

!!The Blood Mist Gang
A group of hoodlums led by the Kyuushingai member Yagura, they show up to attack Naruto and his friends in Chapters 40 and 41. Their members consist of Munashi Jinpachi, Akebino Jinin, Ringo Ameyuri, Momochi Zabuza, Kuriarare Kushimaru, Kurosuki Raiga, and Suikazan Fuguki.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played straight with Zabuza, as while he was an antagonist to Naruto and the rest of Team 7 during the Land of Waves arc, he really wasn't such a bad guy after all and in fact pulled a RedemptionEqualsDeath to cut down Gato, the arc's BigBad. Averted with Raiga, who was the main villain of his anime-only arc. The rest of the group may probably play it straight, if you note that their canon selves were already dead prior to the series' main timeline and might only have been antagonists by virtue of being shinobi attached to the Hidden Mist Village, where they're heralded as heroes and which even then is headed by a Mizukage who's not such a bad person--that and the fact that we don't really know that much about them anyway.
* AdaptationalWimp: Somewhat; while they're certainly shown to be competent fighters in this fanfic, in the canon series they were counted among the best swordsmen of the Hidden Mist Village and the world's shinobi in general. Of particular note is Zabuza, who in canon was able to fight Kakashi to a standstill, and also Raiga, who was a filler-arc main villain in the anime.
* AllBikersAreHellsAngels
* BadassBeard: Jinin.
* BatterUp: Among the various weapons used by the gang members during the fight with Naruto's group in Chapter 41, Fuguki wields a baseball bat.
* CoolMask: Kushimaru wears a porcelain mask over his face, much like his canon counterpart.
* FieryRedhead: Ameyuri.
* GangBangers
* HandicappedBadass: During the brawl, Raiga gets one arm broken at the shoulder by Sai, but he's still able to wrestle Sai to the ground and get in a few hits with his good arm.
* JustShootHim: [[spoiler:Ameyuri's solution when Naruto has Zabuza at knife-point is to pull out a pistol and prepare to blow him away. Ino stops her in time with a well-placed [[GroinAttack kick between the legs]]]].
* KnifeNut: The gang members are all adept at knife usage, among other gang-related weapons.
* MightyGlacier: Fuguki, who's the biggest member of the gang, manages to briefly incapacitate Naruto by barreling into him and then sitting on his back, pressing the blond boy down with his weight.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Ameyuri is the gang's only female member.
* SparedByTheAdaptation
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Kushimaru.
* WouldHitAGirl: The men in the gang don't spare Sakura, Ino or Hinata just because they're chicks. In particular, Jinpachi corners Ino and gives her a nasty beat-down, and Zabuza's response to Hinata's frantic efforts to make him release Neji from a painful arm-twisting is to use his free arm to elbow her in the face, knocking her senseless as a result.

!!Mitokado Homura
A disgraced former employee of Hyuga Corp, who was fired by Hiashi after he failed to give a proper account of funds that had been entrusted to him while Hiashi was gone on a business trip. He joins forces with Akatsuki to get revenge.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Of a sort; in the original canon, he was one of Konoha's village elders who clashed often with Tsunade on differing opinions of how to treat Naruto, and who tried to keep Naruto restrained within the bounds of the village and not let him be allowed to do anything at all, [[WellIntentionedExtremist ostensibly as a means of protecting him from Akatsuki]], though they don't seem to have it out for him directly. The author admits that he made Homura a straight villain in this story simply because he didn't like the man.
* BigFancyHouse: It's not as thoroughly described as the Hyuga or Uchiha mansions, but it's fancy enough to have an outdoor patio and balcony right outside his upstairs-level bedroom.
* DirtyOldMan: Implied, as during one scene he's dreaming about being tended to by women young enough to be his daughters.
* EvilOldFolks: ...he's not a nice person.
* AGlassOfChianti: In one chapter, he's shown to drink a glass of brandy while contemplating the reward he expects to get for helping Akatsuki.
* LastNameBasis: He's frequently referred to by his surname, even in the narrative.
* ManBehindTheMan: He hires the remnants of the Hall Monitors' Guild to take a shot at Naruto's family in the fifteenth Gaiden.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: He takes part in Akatsuki's plot [[spoiler:to kidnap Hanabi as bait to draw out Naruto]] only for the rich reward that's been promised to him if he helps them out.

!!Shiore
The leader of Konoha Town's resident Hawks gang. He plays a major role during the Konoha Gangs arc.
* AxCrazy: Not during his introductory chapter, mind you, but once he gets some guns and a chance to kill a Kyuushingai, well...
* {{BFG}}: He gleefully makes use of a rocket launcher [[spoiler:to blow up the Konoha precinct]].
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Though the author points out that Shiore is very clearly male.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* ShootEverythingThatMoves: He considers this a viable option for him and his gang.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was the ninja Orochimaru killed and impersonated during the Forest of Death.
* TriggerHappy: Him and his gang.

!!Kaguya Kimimaro, Furido Kazuma and Kakuyoku Fubuki
Three gang bosses who are involved in the Gold Sand trade through Aoi; Kimimaro is the leader of the Crossbones Crew, Kazuma leads the Flame-heart Posse, and Fubuki is the boss of the Ice-Eyes Gang. During the Konoha Gangs arc, they come and work for Aoi with the promise of getting reasonable purchasing deals on Gold Sand if they can do him a few favors...
* EvenEvilHasStandards: PlayedForLaughs with Kimimaro, who is perfectly willing to break into people's houses, commit murder, engage in illegal dog-fighting, and [[WouldHitAGirl attack women]]...but is horrified at the idea of forcing people to watch the ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' series as a method of torture.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Kazuma sports a scar over his face.
* MuggingTheMonster: Their attacks don't go well: the Flame-heart Posse attacks Chouji but gets defeated by him, Chouza, Suigetsu and Jugo, Kimimaro is forced to retreat when his gang [[OhCrap learns they have attacked the home of a Kyuushingai]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and run]], and the Ice-Eyes Gang is at the wrong end of a CurbStompBattle courtesy of Shikamaru, [[ToThePain with poor Fubuki getting 'interrogated' by the supposed victim]].
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Kazuma's canon-series counterpart was also known by the name Furido, which is used as his surname in this story.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Kimimaro gets at the wrong end of one, courtesy of a ''pissed'' Naruto.
* OnceDoneNeverForgotten: Naruto isn't willing to let Kimimaro forget about the time he made him watch ''Twilight''.
* PsychoForHire: All three, though Kimimaro is at least more low-key about it.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In terms of this trio working for Aoi, Fubuki fits.
* TheStoic: Kimimaro, in stark contrast to Kazuma and Fubuki.
** NotSoStoic: He's not happy when his gang [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere ditches him on learning they were sent to attack a Kyuushingai's home, nor when his whole gang quits for fear of pissing said Kyuushingai off]].
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Kimimaro.
* WouldHitAGirl: Kimimaro has no qualms about ''shooting'' a woman if he must. [[spoiler:Just ask Kushina]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]: Fubuki.

!!Gama Jiraiya
The permanent secretary in the Ministry of Justice, and a longtime friend of Mayor Tsunade and Lawyer Orochimaru. However, in [[AdaptationalVillainy a far cry]] from his canon counterpart, he has little to no sympathy for Naruto due to the latter's experience as a Kyuushingai.
* ArcVillain: Of the Tribunal arc, given the measures he takes to ensure Naruto is brought before the titular tribunal, up to and including "[[BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord convincing]]" Tsume to assist in doing so.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: He does not believe that the Kyuushingai should get any leniency for what happened during the 365 days, not even if their members included people as benign as Naruto. He allows that it might be a bit hypocritical to say that when the government has Yugito in its employ, but he says that even that situation is simply an opportunity for Yugito to be TheAtoner.
* DirtyOldMan: Wouldn't be Jiraiya without him being this, if Naruto's assessment of his "[[ADateWithRosiePalms palm-dates]]" is any indication.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:He wants to see the Kyuushingai prosecuted for their antics, yet he himself tried to cover up the truth behind Gaara's parents deaths--that they died from a missile strike accidentally launched by Jiraiya during a drunken tryst with a female ambassador--by claiming they were terrorism-supporters and weapons-smugglers. Incidentally, it was that move by Jiraiya and the government that actually led to the 365 days and the subsequent creation of LOVE, Akatsuki and Gold Sand (the latter two indirectly) in the first place, making Jiraiya a GreaterScopeVillain as well]].
* KnightTemplar: During the Tribunal arc, he's determined that Naruto, and the rest of the Kyuushingai by extension, must be brought to justice for the crimes they've committed. Granted, the Nine Terrors really ''did'' spark/perpetrate chaos and destruction across the country, but for most of them, they were MisBlamed for a lot of what happened, or they were just trying to survive during 365 days of hell; Jiraiya, however, doesn't see this as a valid excuse and will do anything he can to see that even the benign members like Naruto get the full brunt of the law, going as far as to [[BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord threaten to withhold funds to repair Konoha Town's wrecked police station]] if Tsume and her officers don't cooperate with his thrust to bring Naruto in.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He doesn't have a surname in canon. His surname here comes from his canonical epithet, "Gama Sage" or "Toad Sage."
* PornStash: According to Orochimaru, during his college years Jiraiya had enough porn magazines to fill a small library.

!!Kira Ay
The CEO of defense contractor Kira Enterprises, and also the brother of Kyuushingai member Kira Hachi (a.k.a. Killer Bee).
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In canon, Ay is loud and ''extremely'' aggressive (while still being mostly a good guy). Here, he's more quiet and composed, albeit not above using theatrics while giving speeches, as shown when he utilizes a helicopter to aid in his unveiling of his company's newest invention. [[spoiler:There's [[DeadPersonImpersonation an in-universe reason]] for this]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: As explained on the main page, he's an adversary to Naruto by virtue of his grudge against the Kyuushingai; by contrast, his canon counterpart, while initially hostile, wasn't such a bad guy after all. [[spoiler:His ''actual'' identity, Killer Bee, was one of Naruto's most steadfast allies in canon]].
* AngstySurvivingTwin: While he can keep it mostly under wraps, he's harboring deep-seated animosity toward the Kyuushingai because his brother Hachi died during the 365 days, leaving him as this. [[spoiler:Except it was actually ''Ay'' who died, not Hachi]].
* BadBoss: He threatens to throw his servants off the rooftop where he and Fuu are fighting, if any of them tries to interfere with his intended ''coup de grace'' against her. [[spoiler:Then again, it's not the real Ay to begin with]].
* BadassInANiceSuit: [[spoiler:Especially given his actual identity]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: Went looking for Hachi during the 365 days [[spoiler:and masqueraded as him to save his life, at the cost of his own]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: He shares dinner with Yugito, talks calmly with her and Naruto on other occasions, and is charming and polite to the Uchiha and Hyuga families during their scheduled corporation battle and to the Kyuushingai when they later appear at his island mansion in the final arc...but all of that is a mask to cover up his less-than-altruistic plans and vindictive nature.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Responsible to Hachi's Foolish.
* LargeAndInCharge: As in canon, he's a big guy. He's also the CEO of his own company.
* LightningBruiser: When made to fight.
* MadeOfIron: During his fight with Fuu at his island mansion, despite her fiercest blows, he's barely fazed.
* MrFanservice: One chapter opens with him waking up and doing his morning workout in his penthouse suite while shirtless.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, the Raikage doesn't have a listed surname or even a proper name.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: As explained in Killer Bee's entry above.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: On the surface, Kira's a billionaire CEO and a government-sanctioned defense contractor who thinks nothing of spending money to outfit the local security forces with new ballistic armor, and will [[PhotoOpWithTheDog permit photographs of such benevolent activities]] for the media's benefit; additionally, he makes no effort to hide that his company had a stake in the creation of the Kyuushingai, painting himself as a man who will at least take responsibility for the devastation that took place because of them. Away from the public eye, however, he makes it very plain in separate conversations with Naruto and Yugito that he hates the Kyuushingai (including the two of them, despite their being on the good guys' side), and that he bears a grudge against them due to what happened to his brother and is therefore decidedly not on their side. [[spoiler:There's also the fact that he's the man behind both Utakata and Akatsuki, plus his publicly outing Naruto and Yugito as Kyuushingai would have put Hyuga Corp and the Uchiha Zaibatsu in a bad light as well were it not for Hinata [[ShamingTheMob chewing out the crowd]]]].

!!The Spiral Reaper
The eponymous antagonist of the Spiral Reaper arc, who goes on a killing spree seemingly directed at faculty or students of Konoha High who have failed to live up to certain standards...
* CompositeCharacter: This individual has a mask like Tobi's first mask (only colored white instead of orange) and carries Hidan's scythe (with silver blades instead of red). [[spoiler:His true identity is that of Yamato Tenzou]].
* DarkIsEvil: Except for the WhiteMaskOfDoom, the Reaper wears black clothing.
* PragmaticVillainy: Surprises and knocks out Hotaru at one point and briefly considers killing her, but then decides against it because she's just doing her job as a cop (whereas the Reaper's other victims are considered by the killer to be legitimately guilty of sin and therefore deserving of death), plus killing a cop will attract too much heat.
* SerialKiller: Well, a wannabe, according to Tsume. It's actually discussed by Naruto and the Ino-Shika-Cho trio whether the Spiral Reaper actually qualifies to be called this, since according to the definition of the trope, the killer doesn't have even the minimum body count and the time period is much too short.
* SilentAntagonist: Except for the character's introductory chapter when first getting equipment [[spoiler:courtesy of Kankuro]], the Reaper never utters a single word out loud.
* SinisterScythe: With three silver blades.
* SlasherSmile: The few times the Reaper's been shown unmasked, the individual has shown the occasional creepy grin.
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Throwing Your Scythe Always Works]]: This is an option if the target is a bit of a distance away. [[spoiler:Emiru found this out the hard way]].
* WhiteMaskOfDoom

[[folder:Yuyami]]
Yuyami (Japanese for "dusk") is a black-ops team overseen by the second Minister of Justice, Yamashiro Aoba, and led by Naruto's father, Namikaze Minato. The group was formed in the wake of the 365 days to investigate, in full, who stood to gain from the training of the nine individuals who would eventually become the Kyuushingai, and what the government's true intentions were for the Kyuushingai. The group is not identified by name in the main story, but is eventually identified in the twenty-eighth Gaiden.

The other members of Yuyami include Uchiha Itachi, Nii Yugito, and former military man Jei. (Itachi's character entry is under the Uchiha Zaibatsu folder, while Yugito's is under the Kyuushingai folder.) [[spoiler:By the end of the story, Konan and Kyusuke of the Akatsuki group, Darui of the LOVE group, and Zabuza of the Blood Mist Gang are also members of this group; their entries are in other folders on this page]].

!!Jei
A former serviceman who resides in Mist City and is a sort-of mentor to minor character Omoi. He first appears in the twenty-second Gaiden.
* BigBrotherMentor: Tries to be this to Omoi, at least.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's the Cloud shinobi J, who's not otherwise identified by a proper name. His name here comes from the phonetic pronunciation of his canon name.
* ProperlyParanoid: The man sleeps with a Glock pistol under his pillow. In fairness, he lives in [[WretchedHive Mist City]].
* ScaryBlackMan: His [[TheDreaded reputation]] is such that his mere presence is enough to frighten off a bunch of thugs who're fighting Omoi, Mikoshi and Ajisai.
* SecretSecretKeeper: He knows that Ajisai's grandfather Roshi was one of the Kyuushingai, but has yet to tell her all the details of what the old man did (she only knows her grandfather provided unspecified military service for his country).
* SemperFi
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Political Figures]]
A list of the politicians and other politically-aligned figures in the ''Kitsune no Ken'' universe. They are members of one of the two prevailing political parties, [[FictionalPoliticalParty the United Liberty Party (ULP) and the Advanced People's Party (APP)]]; at the time the story is set, the ULP is the ruling party and the APP is the opposition party, until the twenty-third Gaiden when their roles have been reversed following the APP's victory at the polls.

Jiraiya, who is the Justice Ministry's permanent secretary, has his own entry in the "Other Antagonists" folder, and other political figures who appear in the story have their own entries elsewhere on this page.

!!Kazahana Sousetsu
The leader of the ULP, and the country's Prime Minister at the time the story takes place.
* DeathGlare: When Tourism Minister Akahoshi dares to mouth off to Sousetsu during a meeting in the twenty-eighth Gaiden, Sousetsu gives him a glare that, to quote the narrative, "would've melted iron."
* GreaterScopeParagon: He takes over this role from Aoba as of the twenty-eighth Gaiden.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler:He knows nothing about the circumstances surrounding the DeceasedFallGuyGambit or of Aoba's plans to sniff out the truth. He is ''not'' pleased about either situation when he eventually finds out in the twenty-eighth Gaiden]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the canon series' first movie, he was killed in the back-story.

!!Omono Dokku
The leader of the APP, and the country's Prime Minister during the fourteenth Gaiden, having defeated Sousetsu in the polls sometime prior to the events of that chapter.
* AintTooProudToBeg: [[spoiler:He was willing to go on his hands and knees and beg Gaara's forgiveness for the disgrace brought upon Gaara's family due to the DeceasedFallGuyGambit. Gaara has to tell him to get up, as it's not becoming of a leader]].
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Dokku didn't have a surname in the canon series.

!!Yamashiro Aoba
The Minister of Justice, personally handpicked by Prime Minister Kazahana to replace his predecessor, the late Ishikawa.
* GreaterScopeParagon: He's Minato's direct supervisor in the latter's search to uncover the truth behind the Kyuushingai training program and the Nine Terrors' rampage.
* UnexpectedSuccessor: Prior to his appointment, Aoba was a Minister without Portfolio in the Prime Minister's office; the only reason he got his new post was because Jiraiya, the Justice Ministry's Permanent Secretary, refused to take on the role himself out of respect to the recently-deceased Ishikawa. [[spoiler:Although Aoba himself quickly learns that Jiraiya's actual reason was to provide PlausibleDeniability in case anyone found out about Ishikawa's role in the DeceasedFallGuyGambit]].

!!Minister Byakuren
The Minister of National Security.
* BadassBaritone: He's described as having a voice like this, despite his advanced age.
* CoolOldGuy: When Naruto declares that Jiraiya's a pervert, Byakuren's response is to laugh about it and then bring up a NoodleIncident that Jiraiya was involved in.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: While he does briefly chastise Naruto for the work the security forces had to undergo thanks to the 365 days, Byakuren acknowledges that nobody is immune to making mistakes, and that Naruto is being TheAtoner.

!!Sarutobi Hiruzen
A relatively minor character in this fic, he serves in the Ministry of Defense and has had at least one encounter with Naruto in the past.
* CoolOldGuy
* DemotedToExtra: Recall that in canon, he was a major supporting character prior to his death in the Invasion of Konoha arc.
* DirtyOldMan: Tsunade flattens him for it.
* NiceGuy: His being this actually saved him in the back-story--prior to the start of the 365 days, he came across Naruto looking despondent and offered to be a listening ear to the boy's troubles. Naruto's response was to advise him to take his family and flee the city, which only a short while later would end up bearing the brunt of the 365 days' initial devastation.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: His intervention is the only reason Naruto didn't get immediately arrested following the first encounter with Aoi's gang.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Unlike his canon counterpart, he survives right to the end of the story.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Nohara Rin
A news reporter for Channel 3 News. She's first introduced in Chapter 62, where she's providing coverage of Kira Ay's unveiling of his company's newest product, and also gets her own character arc thereafter, between Chapters 63 and 67.
* AgeLift: In canon, Rin was a young teenager at the time of her death. Here, she's a full-grown adult and at least the same age as Kakashi.
* DamselInDistress: During the Haunted Past Arc, where she has to contend with an abusive ex-boyfriend who's been stalking her.
* ScarsAreForever: [[spoiler:She's got several facial scars from her [[DomesticAbuse abusive relationship]] with Hidan. She tries to hide them with makeup, but Naruto's still able to notice and point them out]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, she's been dead for years prior to the start of the story's main timeline.

!!Judge Utatane Koharu
A magistrate who's introduced in the Tribunal Arc as the judge Jiraiya summons to preside over Naruto's hearing.
* LongerThanLifeSentence: She's perfectly capable of dishing these out if you get on her bad side. She gives two characters who are mostly respectful of her position up to 30 years' imprisonment with a chance for parole in 15, but another character who openly insults her gets slapped with all his sentences running consecutively, resulting in up to ''365 years'' in prison with NO chance for parole.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Especially when she's got the power to sentence you to ''365 years in prison''.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She'll sentence you according to the severity of your crime, but she will consider your circumstances and whether you had previous criminal convictions, and if your prior record was clean, she'll have your sentencing terms run concurrent with each other; meaning, if you get sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment on two separate charges, she'll put the sentencing times together so you only end up serving 10 years instead of 20.
* WhatTheHellHero: Her ruling about [[spoiler: whether Naruto will possibly have to be subjected to a full trial for his actions in the 365 days]] is this regarding the ''stupid'' decisions Naruto took as a Kyuushingai.

!!Lawyer Kato Dan
A defense attorney who appears in the Tribunal Arc, with a number of cases before Judge Utatane. He's later appointed to represent Naruto at the titular tribunal.
* AmoralAttorney: Averted; despite appearing on behalf of a few not-nice characters in Chapter 99, he hasn't been shown to be a bad guy himself.
* GoodLawyersGoodClients: An interesting variation. He's a good guy, and Naruto (his client) is clearly a good guy...but Naruto really ''is'' guilty of having committed his atrocities during the 365 days. Of course, the point of the tribunal is not to determine Naruto's innocence or guilt, but whether he's guilty enough to warrant going before an official trial by jury.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was Tsunade's fiance who died on her watch.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Pale blue, to be exact.

!!Lawyer Uzuki Yugao
A prosecutor who appears in the Tribunal Arc, appointed to argue the point that Naruto should be made to stand trial before an official court setting for his actions as a Kyuushingai. She makes a later appearance where it's revealed she's old schoolmates with Uchiha Mikoto and the spa owner Mabui.
* AmoralAttorney: Another aversion, as she genuinely desires justice, asks the kind of questions that a prosecutor would be expected to ask, and submits to the court's sustaining of Dan's objection to her referencing the Uzushio High incident (which isn't part of Naruto's current charges regarding the 365 days). [[spoiler:She also [[GracefulLoser takes it with good grace]] when Naruto is absolved of having to undergo an official trial]].
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Shares this view with Jiraiya, where the Kyuushingai are concerned. However, she herself has no grudge against Naruto personally.
* CrusadingLawyer: As a prosecutor, she honestly desires justice for what happened during the 365 days. At the same time, she doesn't act like a douche toward Naruto, even when she's grilling him on the stand (which, even then, is just her doing her job).
* HelloAttorney
* NotSoAboveItAll: She's by-the-book, professional, direct, and polite to the point of coolness...yet she has to [[ActuallyPrettyFunny stifle her laughter]] when Naruto very nearly calls Jiraiya a pervert during his courtroom testimony. And as Chapter 153 reveals, she enjoys a good spa treatment as much as the next client.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Prior to the start of the tribunal, she inquires after Naruto's health and recommends that he should eat some breakfast before they begin. She also points out that it'll give Naruto an opportunity to fine-tune his defense with Dan.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: For reading purposes, at least.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Sabaku Yashamaru
The uncle of Gaara, Temari and Kankuro, introduced in Chapter 132, though he was previously mentioned during the meeting of the Council of the Dawn. He's the CEO of Suna City's Sabaku Limited, and has some political ties.
* AccompliceByInaction: [[spoiler:He did nothing to prevent Gaara's actions which would lead to the 365 days, due to his anger at the government for wrongly scapegoating his sister and brother-in-law as terrorists to cover up its own military mistake of firing a rocket on its own convoy]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Even toward Gaara, his Kyuushingai nephew, such as when Gaara injures himself after having punched through an oak-wood door.
--> '''Gaara:''' This hurts...really, really, really hurts.
--> '''Yashamaru:''' Well, that's what happens when you punch right through a wooden door.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, Sabaku isn't a surname that's ascribed to anyone in Gaara's family (it comes from Gaara's canonical epithet, "Sabaku no Gaara," or "Gaara of the Sand Waterfall").
* NervesOfSteel: He takes being held at gunpoint and placed on top of a bomb's trigger surprisingly calmly, not even flinching or pausing in his eating when the former happens.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Chapter 136 describes him as being an older man, but sporting a fairly youthful appearance.
* ParentalSubstitute: He raised Gaara and his siblings after their parents' deaths.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He doesn't have a major role within the story overall, at least in the present day...but we ''do'' find out that he was critical to Gaara turning out the way he did. [[spoiler:He was the one who informed Gaara of the circumstances behind Gaara's parents' deaths and scapegoat status as given to them by the government to cover up its own embarrassing military mistake, and he deliberately refrained from reining Gaara in just prior to and during the 365 days due to his own bitterness at those circumstances]].
* SparedByTheAdaptation: He's dead in Gaara's backstory in the canon universe.

!!Mabui
A spa owner and an old schoolmate of Uchiha Mikoto and Uzuki Yugao, introduced in Chapter 153.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Dark-skinned silver-haired lady, actually.
* GentleGiant: She's certainly taller than both Mikoto and Yugao, but with a slender build. Her nickname from high school days is "Slender Giant." Plus she has a very deferential personality in relating to her clients during massage sessions, and she speaks in a soft and gentle tone, all the better to put them at ease.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Back when she, Mikoto and Yugao went to school together, if Yugao's old nickname for her, "Slender Giant," is any indication.
* KimonoFanservice
* PressurePoint: She knows how to apply pressure to nerve endings during massages so as to provide pleasure to her clients, as she demonstrates on Yugao for the latter's first massage at her spa. Justified, as Mikoto notes that Mabui studied for a degree in human physiology, which included courses on anatomy, and Mabui herself admits that she spent a lot of time researching the body's nerve clusters in particular.

!!Chi
The leader of Sound City's Tiger Dragon gang, introduced during the Spiral Reaper arc.
* AffablyEvil: He's certainly the most cordial gang leader we've seen to date.
* BadassBiker
* HiddenDepths: Before becoming a gang leader, his dream was to become a food critic. And he's got SupremeChef skills to back up that goal.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: When Naruto stops ''just'' short of punching him in the throat and orders him to leave, Chi knows not to push his luck.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: No, he's not an original character; he's actually C, one of the Raikage's bodyguards in canon. The author simply combined his name with the phonetic Japanese pronunciation of his name, "shi."
* RealMenWearPink: Turns out he's a SupremeChef, and will help out in the kitchen whenever he can.

!!Yukata
Chi's NumberTwo in the Tiger Dragon gang, and a former student of Konoha High School who left the institution on bad terms.
* CallBack: She's the subject of this. Way back in Chapter 4, Ino mentions that the Hall Monitors' Guild framed a girl for stealing a cell-phone because [[DisproportionateRetribution the girl in question had refused a date with one of their members]]. Guess who that girl turned out to be.
* ClearMyName: When she's initially suspected for murder at the start of the Spiral Reaper arc, she makes a point of letting the Konoha Town detectives know she couldn't have done it. This trope then becomes the mission of the extended Tiger Dragon gang for the arc.
* DaddysGirl: She was apparently closer to her father than to her mother.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's got quite a few barbed insults to direct at her leader, Chi, and to anyone else who she's annoyed with.
--> '''Yurika:''' How'd you end up here in the first place? The doctor said you were stabbed.
--> '''Yukata:''' I cut myself while shaving my legs.
* {{Delinquents}}
* DisappearedDad: He died when she was much younger.
* {{Irony}}: She declares that she hates Konoha High School and doesn't see herself going back there, after what happened with her and the Hall Monitors' Guild. [[spoiler:Guess where she ends up working as a teacher in the DistantFinale]].
* ParentalIssues: She's got no love for her mother Yui, who she blames for not standing up for her when she was wrongly accused of theft by the Hall Monitors' Guild. It doesn't help that Yui refuses to own up to her mistake.

!!Chief Kaiza
The police chief of Whirl City's precinct, introduced during the Vengeance arc.
* InspectorJavert: Has no trust toward the Kyuushingai due to the 365 days having badly affected Whirl City, and especially toward Naruto due to the latter's actions having caused damage to Uzushio High School's grounds post-365 days. In fact, he goes as far as to tell Tsume that, if Naruto causes even the slightest bit of trouble while in Whirl City, he'll "send him home in a cedar box."
* IrrationalHatred: Of the misplaced variety, toward the Kyuushingai. Riots broke out in Whirl City due to the Nine Terrors' actions, and his wife was murdered during that period; the people responsible for the murder were caught not long afterward, but Kaiza still blames the Kyuushingai years later, even though they had nothing to do with that, and it's also why he's especially prejudiced against Naruto (the blond boy being a KarmaHoudini in Kaiza's eyes following the events at Uzushio High School probably did not help).
* LastNameBasis: Kaiza is the character's surname in this universe (whereas in canon it's his given name).
* TheLostLenore: His wife was murdered near the end of the 365 days, when he and his police officers were fighting to keep a semblance of order in the midst of Whirl City's riots caused by the Kyuushingai panic. Although the perpetrators were caught not long afterward, Kaiza blames the Kyuushingai for his wife's death regardless.
* OverprotectiveDad: According to Hokuto.
* PapaWolf: Even after Hokuto told him to his face that she hated him hours before, the moment he learns she's in danger, he rushes off to rescue her.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: He's Hokuto's father in this universe; in the original series, the two have nothing to do with each other (plus Hokuto is a filler character who's not in the manga).
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was murdered by Gato during the backstory for the Land of Waves arc.

!!Kaiza Hokuto
Chief Kaiza's daughter and a former classmate of Naruto's from Uzushio High School in Whirl City.
* DamselInDistress: Alongside Hana, during the Vengeance Arc, when both of them are kidnapped by Sumaru's Star-Boys gang to lure Naruto into a trap.
* EarlyBirdCameo: She first showed up in a flashback in Chapter 93. Her first proper appearance in the current timeline was in Chapter 167.
* MissingMom: See Kaiza's TheLostLenore entry above. Hokuto herself feels that her mother's death led to her father's InspectorJavert attitude.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Kaiza's LastNameBasis trope above.
* RebelliousPrincess: Rebellious police chief's daughter, if you want to get technical.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: See Chief Kaiza's entry above.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Gaiden Characters]]
Characters introduced in the story's Gaiden chapters.

!!Roshi Ajisai
The granddaughter of Roshi, a.k.a. Son Goku the Gorilla of the Kyuushingai.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Dislikes sweet stuff.
* FieryRedhead
* TheLadette
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She has no surname to speak of in the canon series.
* NewTransferStudent: At the time we meet her, she's just beginning her first day of the new school year at Mist City High, after having been (unwillingly) transferred from Iwa City High due to moving to Mist City for her mother's job.
* NotAMorningPerson
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She's Roshi's granddaughter in this universe; they have no connection to each other in the canon series.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: French fries.

!!Kimura Mikoshi
One of Ajisai's new classmates at Mist City High, with a chivalrous attitude toward women. He's also Maki's older twin brother.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's usually pretty polite, even to people who're rude to him...but the gloves come off if you endanger his sister.
* BigBrotherInstinct: He'll do whatever he needs to do to rescue Maki if she's in danger.
* GlassesPull: He takes them off when preparing to uphold his insistence that Omoi call of his intended fight with Ajisai. And as Omoi discovers, Mikoshi can ''[[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass physically]]'' back up that insistence if pressed.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He doesn't have a surname to speak of in the canon series.
* OneManArmy: He maims and batters ''eleven'' guys in one moment's onslaught, with no intention of stopping, after one of them cracks a joke about Maki becoming "sloppy seconds." [[spoiler:It takes a CooldownHug from Ajisai to stop him]].
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In canon, the only connection between him and Maki is that they're both from the Hidden Sand Village.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: When he's especially pissed off, as the thirty-first Gaiden reveals.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses: Well, his ambition ''is'' to become a teacher, after all.
* UnstoppableRage: Taunting him that Maki's become "sloppy seconds" was ''not'' the smartest thing to do, as the thug responsible for it found out moments later.
* WouldNotHitAGirl: And he won't allow anyone else to hit girls either, if he can prevent it. [[spoiler:Likely because of his family's history of DomesticAbuse]].

!!Yamazaki Omoi
A classmate of Ajisai and Mikoshi with a reputation for being a ruthless fighter from the wrong side of town.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Downplayed. In the canon series, while a shinobi of the Hidden Cloud, Omoi was definitely on the good guys' side. Here, he's a delinquent who doesn't appear to care about the feelings of others, but he's not completely unreasonable.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: White hair, to be exact.
* {{Delinquent}}
* TheDreaded: His classmates and even his home-room teacher are afraid of him because of his reputation; just the mention of his name is enough to make others nervous.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: On seeing that [[spoiler:[[BadassBookworm Mikoshi]]]] is fast enough to dodge one of his punches and ''take a button from his shirt'' in the process, Omoi decides not to press his luck further.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He has no revealed surname in canon.
* WouldHitAGirl: He's not one to back down from a fight, even if the challenger is a woman.

!!Kimura Maki
Mikoshi's younger twin sister and another Mist City High student.
* GenkiGirl: According to Mikoshi, and she certainly acts the part.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She doesn't have a surname to speak of in canon.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In canon, the only connection between her and Mikoshi is that they're both from the Hidden Sand Village.
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:While revealing her and Mikoshi's DomesticAbuse history to Ajisai]].

!!Kaneko Zeshin
A prosecutor based out of Ame Town, and an old acquaintance of Uzuki Yugao's.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: As shown in the fourth Gaiden.
* GentlemanSnarker
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He was the first Raikage in canon, and he wasn't identified by a proper name.

!!Kinjo Naizen
The creator of the ''Shadow Fox'' comic series.
* CreatorCameo: In-universe example, as in the eighth Gaiden he's set to make an appearance in an episode of the ''Shadow Fox'' TV series.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was the unnamed daimyo of the Land of Lightning.

!!Sakata Emi
An actress who stars as Shadow Fox in the TV series adaptation of the comic.
* ActionGirl: She plays one, at least.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, Emi was a very minor character whose surname was not revealed.

!!Morishita Atsui
An actor who stars as Ghost Wolf in the ''Shadow Fox'' TV series.
* AscendedFanboy: At the time the eighth Gaiden is set, before he landed the role of Ghost Wolf, Atsui was a film student who did independent films that expounded on the whys and wherefores of his favorite comic book character...who just so happened to be Ghost Wolf.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: An in-universe example. Ghost Wolf is a nasty gang leader and super-criminal from the ''Shadow Fox'' series; Atsui is a chummy fellow who gets along quite fine with Emi, Shadow Fox's actress.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Atsui didn't have a revealed surname in canon.

!!Uboshita Yumi and Takishi
A married couple who move in the house across from Naruto's sometime after the Parliament incident. Yumi is the new Spanish teacher at Konoha High School, and Takishi is a data analyst working for the Uchiha Zaibatsu.
* TheAce: Yumi provides a mild deconstruction in the thirty-fifth Gaiden, as the other teachers tell her point-blank that her outshining them in their respective specialty areas isn't exactly endearing her to them. Kakashi advises her that, while she shouldn't lower her own level of excellence, she should try to be sensitive to the feelings of others so as to avoid offending them even by accident.
* AscendedExtra: Both of them, big time. Yumi was one of the two girls created by Konohamaru as part of his Sexy Jutsu: Girl on Girl technique (specifically, the black-haired girl in the anime), and Takishi was one of Orochimaru's random prisoners.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Yumi isn't a good drinker, as the thirty-fifth Gaiden reveals.
* CoolTeacher: Yumi takes Naruto's history as a Kyuushingai in stride, for starters. Kakashi later complains about Yumi being cooler than ''him''.
* DoomItYourself: Apparently, Takishi has had a few ''episodes'' of attempts at being a handyman. Yumi is all too eager to share some of those stories with Kushina (who, in turn, is willing to share embarrassing stories about Naruto).
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: When Yumi introduces herself to her Spanish class for the first time and announces that she's HappilyMarried ''and'' perfectly straight, a few of the girl students mutter in disappointment.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: As stated above, Yumi's original-series counterpart didn't even have a name, not being an actual person to begin with; in Takishi's case, at least that ''is'' his given name. Both of them get the surname Uboshita for this story's universe.
* SternTeacher: Yumi takes her role as a Spanish teacher ''very'' seriously. In fact, according to Takishi, during her previous appointment at Shimo City High School, Yumi earned the nickname "Student Slayer" for how hard she graded her students' work.
* SupremeChef: It turns out Yumi has cooking skill that rivals Kushina's, much to the latter's dismay.
--> '''Naruto:''' Um...well...how do I put this...could we hire Yumi-sensei to cook for us?
--> '''Kushina:''' TRAITOR!
* TeachersOutOfSchool: Well, since they live across the street from each other, Naruto at least knows that Yumi has a life outside of Spanish class. Suigetsu tries to take advantage of this so they can get better grades, once he finds out Yumi and Naruto are neighbors.
--> '''Suigetsu:''' C'mon, dude, she's your next-door neighbor! Can't you, I don't know, sweet-talk her or something? Use some of that Kyuushingai charm or whatever you've got! Our grades are on the line here!
--> '''Naruto:''' Uh, dude, my skills don't work that way...
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Takishi loves tofu, while Yumi is fond of pasta. Happily enough, the day after they move into their new house, Kushina shows up with a house-warming gift of [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a tofu-and-pasta casserole]].

!!Hoseki Guren
A high school Physics teacher from Kumo City, and Sagi's eventual lover.
* KindheartedCatLover
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She didn't have a revealed surname in canon. The author gave her the surname Hoseki ([[MeaningfulName which is Japanese for "gem"]], in reference to her canon self's Crystal Release technique).

!!Owashi Sagi
A sophomore Computer Science college student attending school in Kumo City, and Guren's eventual lover.
* AscendedExtra: In canon, he was important to his sister Toki's back-story, but that's about it.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: According to Guren's silent observation, while Sagi's body in general is average-looking, he's got a pretty impressive ''girth'' that will make any girl who's lucky to have him very happy.
* TheGruntingOrgasm: Has one as a result of having sex with Guren.
* MissingMom: His mother died before he was old enough to really remember her.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: His surname, Owashi, was his father's given name in the original anime; their actual family name was not revealed there.
* NerdsAreVirgins: An aversion, as while he's pursuing a Computer Science degree, at the time he's introduced in the eleventh Gaiden he'd already lost his virginity during his final year of high school.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he's dead long before the arc where his family is featured.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Tsuchinoe
A female ex-cop turned criminal who has an alliance with the Purple Storm gang, and acts briefly as their leader in Arashi's place.
* DarkActionGirl: She's not afraid to go head-to-head with Naruto, a Kyuushingai, if she must.
* FairCop: Used to be this.
* FallenHero: Tsume considers Tsuchinoe to be this.
* KnifeNut: Her chosen weapon in the twenty-fourth Gaiden is a Bowie knife.
* [[LawmanGoneBad Law-woman Gone Bad]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!!Tanzaku Susuki
The marketing manager of the Bounti-Juice fruit juice company from Yu City.
* AbsurdlyHighStakesGame: She presents a challenge to Naruto that's basically a variation of RussianRoulette, only instead of a revolver with bullets, they're using six bottles of fruit juice on a turn-table, with one of the bottles containing a powerful drug. [[spoiler:Don't worry, it's only sleeping powder]].
* AdaptationalVillainy: She was a minor neutral character in canon.
* AscendedExtra: Of a sort. In canon, she was one of two hostesses who entertained Jiraiya; in this story's universe, she was one of the gamblers present at Yura's evening get-together during the Underground Fists arc, but wasn't directly identified by name at that time.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Downplayed; while she's not shown to use unethical practices in her job, she ''does'' use resources from her job (samples of Bounti-Juice's newest drink flavors) as tools in her plot to get revenge on Naruto.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: During her encounter with Naruto in the seventeenth Gaiden, Susuki briefly attempts to tease him [[FootsieUnderTheTable using her foot under the table]], but when Naruto coolly informs her that he's seeing somebody (Hinata), Susuki is graceful enough to pull her foot back and apologize for it.
* TheGamblingAddict
* IdleRich: Considering that she was part of a crowd willing to gamble millions on Yura's games...
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Her surname comes from the Tanzaku Quarters, the gambling house where she worked in canon.
* SlippingAMickey: She drugs a bottle of juice and gives it to Kushina to incapacitate redhead, prior to her encounter with Naruto. [[spoiler:Fortunately, the drug in question is only sleeping powder]].
* SoreLoser: Naruto accuses her of being this. Susuki doesn't exactly dispute it.

!!Komatsu Banna and Amayo
Karui's father and mother. Banna is employed as a security officer assigned to the Tourism Minister, and Amayo is a secretary.
* AbusiveParents: Amayo is seriously emotionally abusive toward Karui, as evidenced by their interaction in the eighteenth Gaiden, even if the abuse appears downplayed.
* ControlFreak: Karui accuses Amayo of being this (not to her face, though).
--> '''Karui:''' I guess I should just be glad she lets me out of the house at all.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Banna's the one Karui got it from.
* DisappearedDad: Banna has been this to Karui for the past five years, having walked out on his wife and daughter. Both he and Karui concede that it was because Banna could no longer handle Amayo's overbearing personality, though Banna regrets having left Karui behind to deal with the fallout of her mother's attitude.
* EducationMama: Amayo expects Karui to excel in her music studies.
* TheGhost: Amayo was this during the main story, as while she was mentioned several times, she never made a personal appearance until the eighteenth Gaiden.
* MeddlingParents: Applicable to Amayo. When Banna comments on the presence of a Kyuushingai (Naruto) in Konoha Town, Karui dryly says it wouldn't surprise her if Amayo moved to remove her from Konoha High School, given that Naruto also attends there.
* MyBelovedSmother: Karui has this problem with Amayo. Witness this brief exchange when Karui tries to mediate the confrontation between her parents...
--> '''Karui:''' Mom...
--> '''Amayo:''' Shush, dear. The grown-ups are talking.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Neither Banna nor Amayo have any connection to Karui (or even to each other) in canon.
* StageMom: As Karui reveals during a confidential talk with Kakashi in the main story, she strongly feels that the reason Amayo has [[EducationMama pushed her to excel at the violin]] is because Amayo herself failed in her endeavors to build a musical career, so now she's pushing her thwarted expectations onto her daughter.

!!Hideaki Sumire
A real estate agent and married mother of two, who comes for an appointment at Mabui's spa in the twenty-first Gaiden. She's revealed to be Hoseki Guren's older sister in the twenty-fifth Gaiden.
* BigSisterInstinct: When they were children, Sumire always beat up other kids who picked on Guren. Also, when Guren's JerkAss ex-husband Genkei blames their failed marriage and his own infidelity on Guren's supposed fertility troubles, Sumire's ready to physically tear him a new one right there and then.
--> '''Sumire:''' Hey, when kids pick on one's kid sibling, it's the bigger sibling's responsibility to protect said kid sibling.
* HappilyMarried: For sixteen years, as the twenty-fifth Gaiden reveals.
* TheModestOrgasm: Experiences a ''very'' quiet one during Okyo's ministrations on her feet in her massage session. She tips Okyo quite generously for it, and it helps her get in the mood for her husband later.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: Sumire didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In the canon series, Sumire and Guren had no connection to each other.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Okyo
The newest employee at Mabui's spa, she's Sumire's massage therapist in the twenty-first Gaiden.
* PressurePoint: As with other massage therapists at the spa, she's been trained by Mabui as to how to manipulate these while massaging clients, to maximize their enjoyment of the session. She inadvertently gets Sumire to experience a quiet orgasm while rubbing her feet due to manipulation of a particular point in her soles.

!!Oshiro Genkei
Guren's ex-husband, who appears in the twenty-fifth Gaiden as a patron at the cafe where Guren, Sumire and Sagi just happen to be having their own get-together.
* JerkAss: He blames Guren, to her face, in front of her boyfriend and her sister, in a public place, for supposedly having infertility problems that led to them being unable to have children and that, according to him, resulted in him cheating on her with her best friend just to be able to have a child to pass on his name.
* MustHaveCaffeine: The whole reason he's at the cafe in the twenty-fifth Gaiden is to grab a cappuccino before a business meeting with some clients.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, he was the unnamed Third Kazekage.
* NeverMyFault: While he readily cops to his [[YourCheatingHeart cheating ways]] being the direct cause of his and Guren's marriage ending, he asserts that that only happened because, for the six years they'd been together, they had tried and failed to have children--and he blames ''Guren'' for it, saying her "plumbing" doesn't work. Sagi calls him out on it, [[ArmorPiercingQuestion asking if Genkei ever did his own medical checkup to eliminate]] ''[[ArmorPiercingQuestion himself]]'' [[ArmorPiercingQuestion as the real problem]].

!!Tsubaki
Hokuto's homeroom teacher at Uzushio High School in Whirl City, she's introduced in the thirty-second Gaiden.
* BathingBeauty: When we first see her, she's coming out from her afternoon bath to answer the telephone. As soon as she's done, she prepares to go right back into the bath.
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: She is firmly of the mindset that Naruto being a Kyuushingai makes him a bad influence for Hokuto, mainly because Whirl City was one of the worst-affected cities during the 365 days. Even before he revealed himself to be a Kyuushingai over the radio, Tsubaki was already of a negative opinion about him due to the incident where he fought the Star-Boys Gang on Uzushio High's grounds and caused significant property damage there, only for him to (in her eyes and the eyes of the rest of Whirl City) become a KarmaHoudini for it.

!!Oishi Taiseki
Kaiza's former batch-match during their days at the police academy, now a cop working for the Yu City Police Department, he's introduced in the thirty-second Gaiden.
* ByTheBookCop: He's close friends with Kaiza because of this. He's also not a fan of the Kyuushingai because of this.
* LanternJawOfJustice: He's a cop who believes quite strongly in justice, and the narrative describes him as having "a jawline that looked like it'd been chiseled off a rock."
* NamedByTheAdaptation: According to the canon ''Naruto'' wiki page, his given name, Taiseki, is an irregular pronunciation of the Japanese term for "big stone," which is usually pronounced as "oishi." The author therefore decided to give him Oishi as a surname.

!!Kagura Sana
Konoha High School's head cheerleader and captain of the gymnastics club, introduced during the thirty-third Gaiden.
* AdaptationalVillainy: While her canon counterpart was certainly arrogant and sadistic, and while she and her teammates opposed Konoha, that was largely in the context of their participating in the villages' joint Chuunin exams. Here, she's downright malicious and petty.
* AlphaBitch: While her introduction paints her as a very popular person, it soon becomes apparent from her interactions with Ruka that she's actually this.
* BoobsOfSteel: Her boob-size is the first thing Naruto notices about her. She's also a pretty skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
* TheBully: A female one, mainly toward Ruka.
* TheCheerleader: The lead cheerleader, in fact.
* DanceBattler: Justified by her gymnastics experience.
* KnifeNut: She fights Naruto while armed with a switchblade during the thirty-third Gaiden.
* ManipulativeBitch: During the forty-second and forty-third Gaidens, she blackmails Ruka into setting Naruto up to be attacked by Suigetsu, or else she'll release Ruka's deepest secret to the whole school (that she's got a part-time job, which is a violation of school rules).
* ProudBeauty: She loves to soak up compliments about her beauty. Hence, she doesn't respond well when Ruka disses her age by calling her "Sana-baa-chan (Grandma Sana), early edition."
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Light violet, to be exact.

!!Royama Ruka
A classmate of Ino's, and Sana's main target for bullying, she's introduced in the thirty-third Gaiden.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's polite, deferential, friendly, and loving toward her family, but if you set yourself up for a verbal zinger from her, she won't pull any punches.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's got a surprisingly vicious verbal zinger in response to Sana telling her not to try pursuing the handsome upperclassman Nakao Amai. Ino and Naruto are actually taken aback when they hear it.
--> '''Sana:''' Guys as youthful and full of passion like Amai-kun don't want little chickadees like you--they want women on their level, women who can match their enthusiasm. You'll have to wait another ten years before you'll even begin to qualify.
--> '''Ruka:''' Then if that description of what Amai-sempai likes is true, then in ten years you'll be too old and saggy to match his enthusiasm, isn't that right?
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
* SingleGirlSeeksMostPopularGuy: What got her on Sana's radar for bullying in the first place--she was seeking the attention of the handsome and popular upperclassman Nakao Amai.

!!Nakao Amai
A senior student at Konoha High School who's introduced in the thirty-third Gaiden, he's the president of the debate club and a real favorite among the girls.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
* SingleGirlSeeksMostPopularGuy: He's the subject of this for Ruka.

!!Nigai
The new leader of the Tiger Dragons after Chi and Yukata, introduced during the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: How he gets the leadership position. It helps that he's far more ruthless than either Chi or Yukata.
* CombatPragmatist: Amply demonstrates that gang-fights aren't about fair play or honor, what with him using a switchblade to turn the tables against Yukata.
* DreadlockWarrior: Like his canon counterpart, he wears his hair in thick dreadlocks. He's also a brutal fighter who's not afraid to throw down with Naruto, a Kyuushingai.
* EvilCounterpart: To Chi. Both of them are Tiger Dragons and both have led the gang, but whereas Chi is cautious, laid-back, and knows when to pick his battles, Nigai is headstrong, proactive, and dead-set on avenging himself and the gang on whoever he perceives as having wronged them. Nigai also derides Chi's leadership style for making the gang appear weak.
--> '''Nigai:''' The Tiger Dragons used to be the baddest gang in Sound City, but ever since Chi took control, what's our record been? We've been reduced to acting like errand boys for a bunch of crazy loons, running from cops, even getting humiliated by a Kyuushingai! Is this what we're supposed to be all about? I say no!
* MeaningfulName: As outlined on the ''Naruto'' Wiki page, Nigai's name means "bitter." Nigai is TheResenter toward Chi.
* PetTheDog: Upon wresting the leadership of the gang from Yukata, Nigai's first instruction is for some of the goons to take her to the hospital.
* TheResenter: Despised how, in his view, Chi's leadership style watered down the Tiger Dragons' threat level in Sound City.
* TheStarscream: He had always opposed Chi's leadership of the Tiger Dragons, and opposed Yukata's appointment as interim leader by Chi. The thirty-fifth Gaiden opens with him challenging Yukata for the leadership position and successfully usurping it from her.

!!Detective Chiba Yurika
A detective attached to the Sound City Police Department, introduced in the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She didn't have a surname in canon.
* PunnyName: Her first name, Yurika, sounds exactly like what you think. [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore She herself has heard it all before]].
--> '''Yurika:''' My parents were crime-scene investigators with a poor sense of humor.

!!Yui
Yukata's estranged mother, introduced in the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Yui and Yukata have no relation to each other in canon.

!!Karyu
The new leader of the Purple Storm Gang after Arashi, introduced in the thirty-sixth Gaiden.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He and Nigai concoct a plan for three members of their combined gangs to kidnap Yumi, but upon being informed by them that Naruto and Yurika are in the vicinity, Karyu--rightly suspecting the gangsters won't last against a Kyuushingai and a cop who's likely armed--tells them to come back and that they'll try the kidnapping another time.

!!Kohada
A prostitute who's introduced in the thirty-eighth Gaiden working at Konoha Town's infamous Pudding Place whorehouse.
* BrokenBird: Her backstory was ''not'' kind to her, from her losing her father in the 365 days to her being betrayed into sexual slavery by a friend's boyfriend.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Starts to defrost upon meeting Han, the first man she's interacted with since her journey into prostitution who's interested in helping her without wanting any physical favors in exchange.
* {{Determinator}}: Even after her friend committed suicide to escape their brutal treatment, Kohada herself vowed to carry on in the hope that one day she'd be able to pursue her lifelong dream of journalism, through which she could then tell her story.
* DisappearedDad: Her father was killed by marauding gangsters during the 365 days.
* ForcedToWatch: She was made to watch while her friend was gang-raped as punishment for refusing to pleasure a john, and was threatened with being similarly gang-raped if she tried to look away.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: The heart of gold is ''very'' deeply buried due to her experiences leaving her jaded.
* MissingMom: Her mother died from pneumonia complications when Kohada was 11.
* RapeAsBackstory: She and her friend were both subjected to this multiple times during their initial days in sexual captivity by the friend's boyfriend and his friends. The friend was DrivenToSuicide after one particularly vicious gang-bang by the boyfriend and five of his pals, but Kohada swore to continue living on in spite of it all.
* SexAsRiteOfPassage: In her line of work, she has occasionally facilitated this for a few guys who've been honest enough to admit that they've only come to her to silence their friends' taunts that AManIsNotAVirgin; for these guys, she'll willingly go all out to show them the ropes.
* StepfordSnarker: She's introduced with a very sarcastic mouth, but behind the snark is a badly damaged woman.
* {{Tsundere}}: According to Karyu, Kohada fills this fantasy niche for clients who frequent the Pudding Place.

[[folder:Spoiler Characters]]
Characters whose very mention in this wiki would reveal spoiler-ific information pertaining to the story's plot. As a result, none of the information in this folder is spoiler-tagged.

!!Shimada Yachi
The former ambassador to the foreign power where the now-infamous Futona Seigi scandal took place, after a drunken tryst between her and Jiraiya inside a weapons-control room resulted in him accidentally launching a rocket that killed several of their own soldiers, including Gaara's parents.
* TheAtoner: Concerning what happened when she was in office, the night the soldiers were accidentally killed.
* DeathSeeker: Implied in the third Gaiden, as she [[FaceDeathWithDignity calmly prepares for Kankuro to kill her]] if that will satisfy his wish to avenge his parents. However, Kankuro isn't there for that.
* DecompositeCharacter: Yachi and her daughter Villette were actually the same woman in canon, the former leader of the Nadeshiko Village--specifically, Yachi was the woman's older self and Villette was her younger self. The author separated them into two different characters for this story and made them mother and daughter.
* DefectorFromDecadence: She was the only government official, among those in on the knowledge of what happened in the scandal, who refused to go along with their DeceasedFallGuyGambit. She resigned her office as a result, in protest. This is the only reason Kankuro spares her life when he confronts her in the third Gaiden.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Yachi always expected someone from the government might come to kill her because of her knowledge of what really happened in the Futona Seigi incident.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: She wasn't identified by name in canon.

!!Shimada Villette
Shimada Yachi's daughter.
* ChekhovsGunman: She first appeared as an unidentified woman who Aoi accosted and harassed in Chapter 4 of the main story. As it turns out in Chapter 215, she's the daughter of the ex-ambassador, who is herself a pivotal character to the back-story, and after seeing the news-cast about LOVE's overthrow of Parliament and an additional news-blurb about Naruto, on recognizing the blond boy as one of the kids who saved her from that earlier assault, and discovering that Naruto's mother Kushina is trying to intercept LOVE's plan, she convinces her mother to tell the public about what happened in the Futona Seigi scandal.
* DecompositeCharacter: See Yachi's entry above.
* MinorMajorCharacter: Initially introduced in a brief scene and then not seen again for over 200 chapters until it's revealed that she's related to one of the most important figures in the back-story.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: See Yachi's entry above.

!!Uzumaki Enishi
Naruto's and Hinata's son, in the epilogue.
* BrattyHalfPint
* DecompositeCharacter: No, Enishi isn't an original character; he's actually based on an ImagineSpot Naruto had in canon where he briefly wished he'd had red hair like his mother Kushina.
* FieryRedhead: Male example, likely inherited from his grandmother Kushina.
* NamedByTheAdaptation
* ThePrankster: He's a real prankster. His EstablishingCharacterMoment has him running away from Suigetsu and Jugo because he'd tricked them into sitting in their squad-car after he'd smeared the seats with jam.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Burger Castle's burgers.

!!Uchiha Suiren
Itachi's and Yugito's daughter, in the epilogue.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Suiren's got no connection to Yugito or any of the Uchihas in canon.

!!Asuka
Ino's and Sai's daughter, in the epilogue.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In canon, she was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces' Thundercloud Unit, none of whom were identified by name.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: She's got no connection to Ino or Sai in canon.

!!Uchiha Lando
Sasuke's and Sakura's son, in the epilogue.
* BrattyHalfPint
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Lando's got no connection to Sakura or any of the Uchihas in canon.

!!Akahoshi, Shijimi, Ishikawa and Jibachi
The four government ministers who collaborated with Jiraiya to cover up his accidental killing of their own military personnel when he triggered a rocket-launch during a drunken tryst with Shimada Yachi. Akahoshi is the Minister of Tourism; Shijimi is the Minister of Foreign Affairs (and Yachi's direct supervisor); Ishikawa is the Minister of Justice (and Jiraiya's direct supervisor); and Jibachi is the Minister of Information.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Shijimi and Ishikawa were never stated to be outright villainous in canon (unless one counts Shijimi's constant requests to retrieve her runaway cat as villainous, given how often the cat runs away).
* AscendedExtra: All of them, to varying degrees. Akahoshi was the fourth Hoshikage and the main villain of the Star Guard Mission filler arc, Shijimi was the wife of the Fire Daimyo, Ishikawa was the first Tsuchikage, and Jibachi was another filler villain and the grandson of the first Tsuchikage. Here, they play a crucial role in the fic's back-story.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Happens to Ishikawa at the beginning of the tenth Gaiden; he's so distracted by the events of the 365 days (and his own indirect role in causing that event) that he runs a red light and crashes into a truck, dying as a result.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Even Jibachi, who came up with the plot to cover up the soldiers' deaths, and Shijimi, who approved of said plot, both voiced disapproval of Ishikawa drafting a known cutthroat criminal (Yagura) and two young boys (Naruto and Gaara) into the Kyuushingai training program.
* GovernmentConspiracy: Jibachi was the one who came up with it, and the other three Ministers and Jiraiya agreed to it.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Gaara's plan to overthrow the government, the violence that sparked the 365 days, the subsequent devastation caused across the region because of the Kyuushingai and the warring criminals taking advantage of the chaos, the trauma inflicted to the Kira brothers and the deaths of Chief Kaiza's wife and Tenten's parents during that period, the formation of Akatsuki, the formation of LOVE, the creation of Gold Sand, the murders of several doctors and their families at Utakata's hands, Hanabi's kidnapping as masterminded by Akatsuki, Naruto's torture and Roshi's murder at the hands of Akatsuki, Yahiko's attempt on Sakura's life as part of his RevengeByProxy move on Dr. Haruno--most if not all of the story's major conflicts and tragedies can be traced back, in varying measures, to these four, since they came up with the directive to frame their own soldiers (including Gaara's parents) for treason in order to cover up Jiraiya's accidentally blowing the soldiers up with a missile, [[MyCountryRightOrWrong all in an effort to keep hold of international trade agreements and to save face with other countries]].
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: While all of them have this as their underlying reason for going along with the cover-up, Akahoshi is the one who's most vocal about it, citing the trade agreements his Ministry is set to lose if the scandal goes public.
* PlausibleDeniability: Shijimi is the one to suggest that this would come into play for the Prime Minister concerning the soldiers' deaths, if they go along with Jibachi's plan.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Shijimi is the only female of the lot who's in on their cover-up (since Yachi refused to play along).
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]: Akahoshi.

* HeroKiller: They almost kill Naruto ''twice'' [[spoiler:and successfully kill Roshi]].Roshi...at least, until the fifty-first Gaiden reveals him to be alive after all]].

* AcademicAlphaBitch: Her first appearance paints her this way, always lording over Ino because of the fact that, a year prior, she'd gotten the highest GPA out of all the girls in their class (Ino came a close second, losing out by five points). It's later deconstructed, however, in that behaving this way will bleed into one's social interactions with others, which in turn will lead to one getting viewed as a stuck-up, pretentious, arrogant blowhard who everyone resents and avoids. Sakura later finds this out the hard way when Sasuke, the object of her crush, tears into her with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech over her behavior; and even well into one Gaiden chapter which takes place long after the events of the main story, another student, Haruna, is still unwilling to see any good qualities in Sakura ''because'' the latter practiced this former mindset.

The twenty-third Gaiden, set during her twenty-third birthday, shows her out at dinner with Naruto, and while they're waiting for their order, she engages in FootsieUnderTheTable as a way of teasing him.

Haruna uses this against them as blackmail, [[HypocriticalHumor by making them secure a copy of a dirty book for her]] in exchange for her not telling their mothers about that incident.


Added DiffLines:


!!Mr. Ozaki
Haruna's father, and one of those residents of Konoha Town who are anti-Kyuushingai.
* AscendedExtra: In the canon series' anime, he only showed up in one scene during a flashback. He doesn't even get a page of his own on the ''Naruto'' series' wiki page, to put this into extra perspective.
* LastNameBasis: His first name hasn't been revealed.
* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: He's on the subjective side of this trope and a gender-flipped example, as he initially refuses to believe Haruna could be capable of any wrongdoing [[spoiler:after she and Emiru are held for vandalizing Sakura's family house]]. When the evidence comes up to prove otherwise...the father-daughter relationship gets somewhat strained as a result.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: He didn't have a revealed name in canon.
* OverprotectiveDad: In the sense that he really doesn't approve of Naruto being in Konoha Town due to being a Kyuushingai, and therefore he doesn't want Haruna to be anywhere around the boy because of that fact.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: He's long dead in Haruna's back-story in canon.


!!Kagari, Mahiru, Emiru and Ozaki Haruna
Four students of Konoha High who first show up during the Tribunal arc to hassle Sakura over comments her father has made at a town hall meeting held to discuss the presence of the Kyuushingai in Konoha Town.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played straight with Emiru and Haruna; the former was a very minor character but was still friendly to Naruto, and the latter was a filler character who was the daimyo of the Land of Vegetables and gave Naruto support in her arc. Concerning the boys, Kagari was already an Amegakure-affiliated villain in the canon series and the filler arc that featured Aoi, and while we don't know Mahiru's canon morality, he was definitely an enemy of Kakashi and Minato as revealed in their back-story.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: Emiru and Haruna certainly do.
* TheBully: At least one of the boys was willing to get physical with Sakura over her father's comments. [[spoiler:The girls took it a step further]].
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:In the original series, Emiru (there a very minor character) is quite alive and well. Here, she gets murdered by the Spiral Reaper]].
* KidsAreCruel / TeensAreMonsters: They were perfectly willing to assault Sakura, except Sasuke showed up right at that point. [[spoiler:Emiru and Haruna went further and vandalized Sakura's house and her dad's car]].

She's even willing to get physical with blackmail Kagari and Mahiru into securing a copy of the book for her, in exchange for her keeping silent about their peeping habits.
* EveryoneHasStandards: She's something of a jerk, yes, and definitely holds contempt for
