Here is the Characters main menu.

    open/close all folders 
    Chief Inuzuka Tsume 
Konoha Town's chief of police, and Kiba's and Hana's mother.
  • I Want Grandkids: Makes this complaint to Hana in the thirteenth Gaiden.
  • Iron Lady
  • Lethal Chef: 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.
  • Mama Bear: 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.
  • Secret Keeper: 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.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In canon, Ibiki was mostly neutral toward Naruto, though he saw the blond as "interesting" after seeing his performance in the Chuunin exams' written portionnote ; here, he's more of a downplayed Inspector Javert at first, but eventually comes to have (mild) respect for Naruto. Played straight with Iruka, him being LOVE's mole in the Konoha Town department.
  • Aloof Big Brother: 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.
  • Deadpan Snarker: 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?
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: Iruka and Ibiki, respectively, utilize this during their interrogation of Konan in Chapter 49. However, Konan knows this tactic well and says it won't work on her.
  • Nice Guy: Iruka, at least, is much more civil to Naruto than Ibiki is.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Iruka is willing to give Naruto the benefit of the doubt concerning the boy's intentions for Konoha Town.
  • Secret Keeper: They're both in on the secret of Dr. Haruno's connection to the Kyuushingai.
  • Sympathetic Inspector Antagonist: 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 Inspector Javert 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.
  • Action Girl: She's able to hold her own when the Hawks gang lays siege to the precinct during the Konoha Gangs arc.
  • Fair Cop
  • Naïve Newcomer: 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.
  • Named by the Adaptation: 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.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: 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.

How well does it match the trope?
