    Hatake Kakashi 
A teacher in Konoha High School's Math department.
  • The Alleged Car: He has a pick-up truck that gives him no end of grief just to get started during the Underground Fists arc.
  • Always Save the Girl: Two examples. The first time, he readily aided Rin in seeking protection from her abusive ex-boyfriend Hidan; and the second time, he drove off to rescue Karui the moment he saw Yura driving away with her as an unwilling passenger.
  • Ass Shove: Yep, he used the Thousand Years of Pain on Hidan. With Hidan's own knife.
  • Badass Bookworm: He is a math teacher, remember.
  • Badass Teacher: 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.
  • Berserk Button: 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 came to an arranged meeting early and gave her a sharp dressing-down for potentially exposing Naruto's Kyuushingai past to the public.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: 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 Cool Teacher? CHECK.
  • Combat Pragmatist: See Ass Shove.
  • Cool Mask: Although in this story it's a dust-mask instead of a ninja mask.
  • Cool Teacher: 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.
  • Covert Pervert: Although he fails at the "covert" part following a Suspiciously Specific Denial.
    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...
  • Demoted to Extra: 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 Day in the Limelight during Rin's character arc, however, and then gets a bigger role in Karui's arc.
  • Hidden Depths: 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 Failure Hero for not being able to do anything about 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.
  • It's Not Porn, It's Art: Makes this claim about the Icha Icha book series that he loves so much. Nobody else is falling for it.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: 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, 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.
  • No Mouth: 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.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Yes, it's easy to dismiss him as a perverted lech who insists his porn books are works of art, watches his female students' clingy clothing, and desires to see girls mud-wrestling, but seriously mess with his students and he'll drop the facade fast and give you the beating of your existence.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: 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.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Serious Business: Icha Icha. Don't ruin one of those books, or else it's a Thousand Years of Pain (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).
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: 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.
  • Adaptational Wimp: 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.
  • Covert Pervert: 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.
  • Heroes Want Redheads
  • Hot Teacher: Naruto gets caught daydreaming about her in class (and winds up with a Raging Stiffie because of this, much to his humiliation and the other teachers' amusement when Mei relates the story later).
  • Lust Object: For all the boys at Konoha High. Unfortunately, it almost got her gang-raped by Aoi and his cronies.
  • Meaningful Name: 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.
  • Ms. Fanservice

    Yuhi Kurenai 
Naruto's history teacher. She also tends to butt heads with Kakashi.
  • The Confidant: Mei takes her on as this in the forty-fifth Gaiden.
  • Hot Teacher: Consider the way Naruto first met her.
  • Must Have Caffeine: 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.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: 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 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).
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: With Kakashi.
  • Stern Teacher

    Shiranui Genma 
The boys' Physical Education teacher.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: 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.
  • Stern Teacher: 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.
  • Adaptational Wimp: 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.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: When Danzo outlines Naruto's destructive past from Uzushio High School, Anko is extremely interested.
    Anko: Ahh...a real bad boy, huh?
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: 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.
  • Stern Teacher: Threatens to make her students run twenty laps around the soccer field for misbehavior.

    Principal Shimura Danzo 
The principal of Konoha High School.
  • Adaptational Heroism: 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.
  • Dean Bitterman: 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.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: 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.
  • Not So Above It All: He's a Shadow Fox fan, just like most of the town's populace.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: 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.
  • Adaptational Villainy: 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 Stern Teacher, nevertheless helps Naruto's development greatly. This is also without taking the Spiral Reaper persona into account.
  • Dean Bitterman: While Danzo is hospitalized, he continues his principal's efforts to get Naruto kicked out.
  • Remember the New Guy?: 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.

How well does it match the trope?
