    Roshi Ajisai 
The granddaughter of Roshi, a.k.a. Son Goku the Gorilla of the Kyuushingai.

    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.
  • Berserk Button: Maki's safety is paramount for him. Implying that you have done, or are going to do, any harm to her will result in him tearing you and your gang a new one.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's usually pretty polite, even to people who're rude to him...but the gloves come off if you endanger his sister.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He'll do whatever he needs to do to rescue Maki if she's in danger.
  • Glasses Pull: 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 physically back up that insistence if pressed.
  • Named by the Adaptation: He doesn't have a surname to speak of in the canon series.
  • One-Man Army: 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." It takes a Cooldown Hug from Ajisai to stop him.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In canon, the only connection between him and Maki is that they're both from the Hidden Sand Village.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: When he's especially pissed off, as the thirty-first Gaiden reveals.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Well, his ambition is to become a teacher, after all.
  • Unstoppable Rage: 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.
  • Would Not Hit a Girl: And he won't allow anyone else to hit girls either, if he can prevent it. Likely because of his family's history of Domestic Abuse.

    Yamazaki Omoi 
A classmate of Ajisai and Mikoshi with a reputation for being a ruthless fighter from the wrong side of town.
  • Adaptational Villainy: 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.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: White hair, to be exact.
  • Delinquent
  • The Dreaded: 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.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: On seeing that 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.
  • Named by the Adaptation: He has no revealed surname in canon.
  • Would Hit a Girl: 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.

    Lawyer Kaneko Zeshin 
A prosecutor based out of Ame Town, and an old acquaintance of Uzuki Yugao's.

    Kinjo Naizen 
The creator of the Shadow Fox comic series.
  • Creator Cameo: In-universe example, as in the eighth Gaiden he's set to make an appearance in an episode of the Shadow Fox TV series.
  • Named by the Adaptation: 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.

    Morishita Atsui 
An actor who stars as Ghost Wolf in the Shadow Fox TV series.
  • Ascended Fanboy: 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.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: 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.
  • Named by the Adaptation: 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.
  • The Ace: 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.
  • Ascended Extra: 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.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Yumi isn't a good drinker, as the thirty-fifth Gaiden reveals.
  • Cool Teacher: Yumi takes Naruto's history as a Kyuushingai in stride, for starters. Kakashi later complains about Yumi being cooler than him.
  • Doom It Yourself: 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).
  • Even the Girls Want Her: When Yumi introduces herself to her Spanish class for the first time and announces that she's Happily Married and perfectly straight, a few of the girl students mutter in disappointment.
  • Named by the Adaptation: 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.
  • Stern Teacher: 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.
  • Supreme Chef: It turns out Yumi has cooking skill that rivals Kushina's, much to the latter's dismay.
    Naruto: do I put this...could we hire Yumi-sensei to cook for us?
    Kushina: TRAITOR!
  • Teachers out of School: 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...
  • Trademark Favorite Food: 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 a tofu-and-pasta casserole.

    Hoseki Guren 
A high school Physics teacher from Kumo City, and Sagi's eventual lover.

    Owashi Sagi 
A sophomore Computer Science college student attending school in Kumo City, and Guren's eventual lover.
  • Ascended Extra: In canon, he was important to his sister Toki's back-story, but that's about it.
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: 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.
  • The Grunting Orgasm: Has one as a result of having sex with Guren.
  • Missing Mom: His mother died before he was old enough to really remember her.
  • Named by the Adaptation: His surname, Owashi, was his father's given name in the original anime; their actual family name was not revealed there.
  • Nerds Are Virgins: 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.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In canon, he's dead long before the arc where his family is featured.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair

    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.
  • Abusive Parents: Amayo is seriously emotionally abusive toward Karui, as evidenced by their interaction in the eighteenth Gaiden, even if the abuse appears downplayed.
  • Control Freak: 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.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Banna's the one Karui got it from.
  • Disappeared Dad: 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.
  • Education Mama: Amayo expects Karui to excel in her music studies.
  • The Ghost: Amayo was this during the main story, as while she was mentioned several times, she never made a personal appearance until the eighteenth Gaiden.
  • Meddling Parents: 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.
  • My Beloved Smother: 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.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Neither Banna nor Amayo have any connection to Karui (or even to each other) in canon.
  • Stage Mom: As Karui reveals during a confidential talk with Kakashi in the main story, she strongly feels that the reason Amayo has 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.
  • Big Sister Instinct: 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.
  • Happily Married: For sixteen years, as the twenty-fifth Gaiden reveals.
  • The Modest Orgasm: 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.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Sumire didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
  • Related in the Adaptation: In the canon series, Sumire and Guren had no connection to each other.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

The newest employee at Mabui's spa, she's Sumire's massage therapist in the twenty-first Gaiden.
  • Pressure Point: 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.
  • Must Have Caffeine: 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.
  • Named by the Adaptation: In canon, he was the unnamed Third Kazekage.
  • Never My Fault: While he readily cops to his 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, asking if Genkei ever did his own medical checkup to eliminate himself as the real problem.

Hokuto's homeroom teacher at Uzushio High School in Whirl City, she's introduced in the thirty-second Gaiden.
  • Bathing Beauty: 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.
  • Black-and-White Morality: 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 Karma Houdini 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.
  • By-the-Book Cop: He's close friends with Kaiza because of this. He's also not a fan of the Kyuushingai because of this.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: 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."
  • Named by the Adaptation: 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.

    Royama Ruka 
A classmate of Ino's, and Sana's main target for bullying, she's introduced in the thirty-third Gaiden.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: 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.
  • Deadpan Snarker: 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?
  • Named by the Adaptation: She didn't have a revealed surname in canon.
  • Single Girl Seeks Most Popular Guy: 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.

    Detective Chiba Yurika 
A detective attached to the Sound City Police Department, introduced in the thirty-fifth Gaiden.

Yukata's estranged mother, introduced in the thirty-fifth Gaiden.

A prostitute who's introduced in the thirty-eighth Gaiden working at Konoha Town's infamous Pudding Place whorehouse.
  • Broken Bird: 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.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: 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.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father was killed by marauding gangsters during the 365 days.
  • Forced to Watch: 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.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: The heart of gold is very deeply buried due to her experiences leaving her jaded.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother died from pneumonia complications when Kohada was 11.
  • Rape as Backstory: 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 Driven to Suicide 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.
  • Sex as Rite-of-Passage: 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 A Man Is Not a Virgin; for these guys, she'll willingly go all out to show them the ropes.
  • Stepford Snarker: 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.
