Our Hero. His history with Konoha has been fleshed out, and as a result Naruto has surprisingly become a much deeper and more nuanced character. While circumstances haven't forced the rapid power gain seen in the anime, Naruto has picked up several new jutsu and abilities. Saved Hinata's life and became her boyfriend, and later married her.
  • Achievements in Ignorance: Surviving Touji's ANBU training is half not realizing he is deliberately being tested to the point of destruction, half Naruto's documented inability to give up.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Hinata is happy to play along, but there are times she has to remind him the fun has to follow responsibility.
  • Badass Longcoat: Hinata buys him one taking inspiration from the coat he earned in Sage training. Hiashi notes how suspiciously similar it is to the Fourth Hokage's coat of office, and also the strength of the family resemblance when he wears it.
  • Beneath the Mask: Behind his mask of smiles, determination, and occasional perversity, Naruto has bottled up a vast sea of rage and pain at the mistreatment and neglect of his childhood, and he is terrified of ever letting it out, afraid that doing so would also release the Kyuubi. He also states occasionally how he's afraid he could hurt Hinata in that state as well, despite more than ample proof his love for her has greater priority than his pain.
  • Flashback Nightmare: After the Land of Steel mission, Naruto suffers nightmares on a regular basis, to the point they leave him feeling not himself, so much so he sometimes thinks he's going insane. He only shares that fact with Hinata under duress, terrified Hinata will see him as "poor crazy Naruto".
  • Flash Step: He learns how to use Minato's Flying Thunder God jutsu, and uses it to great effect, even if he still hasn't fully mastered it.
  • Generation Xerox: Naruto has always resembled Kushina in temperament (and love of ramen), but as time passes, Naruto comes to resemble Minato in appearance and skill a little more every day. Especially after mastering the Flying Thunder God technique.
  • Greater Need Than Mine: Naruto debates whether to be selfish with the favor owed him by the Hyūga clan and force them to approve of his relationship with Hinata, or to keep his promise to Neji and force the clan to stop using the birdcage seal on branch family members. Eventually he chooses the latter, and the immediate approval gained from the branch family makes his selfish choice moot.
  • Healing Factor: Gained from being host to the Nine-Tail Fox, enough so that Hinata freaks out the first time she sees a scar on his body - they usually do not last a few hours, let alone overnight - and is fascinated by later ones, as long as they last.
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: When Naruto reveals he can use the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode during his fight with Kei, albeit with imperfect control.
  • I Know What You Fear: In the Lotus-Eater Machine jutsu keeping Naruto, Minato, and Kushina in a dream world coma, Naruto's resistance keeps causing errors in the jutsu. The construct fights back by threatening to turn the dream world into a personalized nightmare for Naruto if he doesn't stop resisting, by playing on Naruto's two greatest fears: of Hinata coming to harm by Naruto's hands or otherwise, and of being alone.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Minato's resurrection lengthening jutsu works, but both he and Kushina - and Naruto too, eventually - fall afoul of the lotus-eater portion of Seireiko's multi-layered regenerating control jutsu on the sacrificial clone.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: At his most pessimistic, Naruto truly believes that anything good in his life will always be balanced by something equally awful. He makes Genin, and gets paired with Sasuke. Makes friends with Sasuke, and Sasuke betrays and abandons Konoha. Creates the Rasenshuriken and Jiraya dies. And so on an so forth, until by his wedding he feels badly overdue for evil karma to catch up with him for daring to be respected and love Hinata.
  • Power of Trust: Naruto never had the chance to learn trust from loving parents, so ultimately only trusts himself. Until Hinata, and even with her it comes with great difficulty. But her promise to face whatever comes at his side slowly breaks down Naruto's shell, allowing him to express his hidden negativity to her and address it together in a positive manner.
  • Running Gag: Every time anyone pisses Sakura off they hide behind Naruto first, on the assumption that she's hit him a lot so he's really good at taking it.
    • Hiashi chasing Naruto with sword drawn.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: After finally getting his hair cut professionally instead of cutting it himself, all the ladies in town take notice. Hinata claims ownership with a very public kiss, before dragging him off on a walk to show him off.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Following the assault on Seireiko's base in the Land of Steel, Naruto shows mild but definite symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, including memory loss, nightmares, occasional flashbacks under stress, and strong elements of disassociation. It is not enough to seriously impair his life or happiness, but Hinata believes it will take professional psychological help to make peace with what happened, and it's implied that Kakashi will not give approval for Naruto to join ANBU until he gets treatment.
  • Soul Eating: The first time Rokuro gets stuck behind the Kyūbi Seal, Naruto seal him away and refuses to let the Nine-Tail eat his soul; things go poorly. The second time, a slightly more Genre Savvy and much more cynical Naruto feeds Rokuro to the Nine-Tails without the slightest hesitation or remorse.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: A massive bomb detonation leads everyone to believe Naruto is dead. He shows up on Suna's doorstep nine days later with massive holes in his memory - he cannot remember those nine days, plus other little facts like Sai's name or how to get back to Konoha. Some of the details slowly fill in, but a whole and complete picture of what happened in the Land of Steel raid is yet to be forthcoming.


Our Heroine. Saved by Naruto from a nasty fall, she wound up blurting out her true feelings to him, and the two promptly began a relationship. Her confidence has grown exponentially after associating with Naruto, and she earned the rank of Jounin early on. Currently wed to Naruto.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Hinata is sweet and kind and polite and will end you if you seriously pose a threat to Naruto, as she demonstrated on Touji.
  • Battle Couple: Naruto and Hinata rarely get a chance to join forces, but when they do, they're a pair to be reckoned with.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Nothing brings out Hinata's jealous side like Nanami pouring herself all over Naruto. The first time she witnessed it, Hinata's rage and fury were palpable, both at Nanami and at Naruto for rejecting her with insufficient violence. Hinata was so furious she threatened to "Jyuuken her skinny little a-" before her essential nature reasserted herself. Fortunately Naruto was the victim of Nanami's unwelcome advance and has made his opinion of her clear.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: Naruto wound up fed up with the way Hiashi was treating Hinata, and challenged him for the honor of the Hyūga clan. If Naruto lost, the two would have to give up their relationship forever; if Naruto won, Hinata would have to watch her father get beaten and humiliated before most of Konoha. She admitted quietly to Sakura just before the fight that she could not choose, but she would be miserable until it was all over. Fortunately Naruto uncovered some crucial evidence before the fight that he chose to share afterwards, preserving Hiashi and the Hyūga clan's honor, and Hiashi could admit he was beaten well before he received any permanent injury.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Gets a little lovestruck at Naruto occasionally, especially when she gets him to dress up a little.
  • Despair Event Horizon: She reaches hers in the nine days after the raid on Seireiko's base in the Land of Steel, with Naruto thought dead. She cannot care for herself, or even eat, just lie in bed and cry. Fortunately Naruto is tougher than a little bomb blast.
  • Fanservice: We get a few body shots of her stepping out of the shower wearing nothing but a towel. It is explicitly called out as blatant fanservice on one occasion.
  • Interrupted Intimacy: Naruto occasionally laments that the downside of dating polite girls is that they absolutely will interrupt "fun" instead of be rude and ignore someone knocking on the door.
  • Liquid Courage: Hinata privately requested saki to lower her inhibitions and be the aggressor in bed for once on her and Naruto's wedding night. She just hoped she could make it through before it wore off.
  • Luminescent Blush: Wears one every time anything the least bit immodest happens.
  • Nice Girl: Hinata is genuinely polite, kind, sweet, and utterly devoted to Naruto.
  • Running Gag: Naruto keeps a running count of pages since she last fainted.
  • Tears of Blood: In the struggle to free Naruto from Seireiko's Lotus-Eater Machine jutsu, Hinata pushes her Byakugan far further than she's ever gone before, until she's bleeding from the eyes. Fortunately there is no significant long-term consequences.
  • The Confidant: Even Hinata has trouble breaking through Naruto's shell, but when he opens up she is always there with love and understanding.
  • Took a Level in Badass: And how! Her skill and dedication coupled with her growing confidence resulting from her relationship with Naruto earns her promotion to Jounin after the fight with Touji. Her fight scenes are consistently excellent as well.


After killing Itachi, Sasuke returned to Konoha to make amends, and wound up reintegrating with the Konoha shinobi forces. Finally earned the rank of chunin alongside Naruto. Still ashamed of his prior life choices, and has a strong urge to atone for his mistakes. Currently dating Sakura.


Talented med-nin and team leader of Team 7. Working through a few psychological issues related to an ugly scar. Currently dating Sasuke.


Currently dating Mina Mikon.


  • Kavorka Man: Shino is quite popular with the female entomologists in Konoha.


Assigned to Suna messenger duty for a time, during which he established a relationship with Temari. Wound up stripped of the duty thanks to his own concience, which endangered his relationship with Temari, but the two worked it out with a quick marriage and some political rules lawyering. Still married to Temari.


Hesitantly started a relationship with Chouji after he offered emotional support following an ugly incident with some guy just trying to get in her pants. While still in said relationship, it's troubled by her deep attraction to Sakura and her own self-sabotage due to her belief that all her relationships are doomed.
  • Bi the Way: has a crush on Sakura, which interferes somewhat with her growing romance with Choji
  • Beneath the Mask: Underneath, she is lonely and insecure, convinced her relationships are always doomed to fail.
  • Covert Pervert: Not as covert as she thinks.
  • Improbable Food Budget: Ino doesn't join the Akimichi clan family dinners very often, mostly because they treat dinner as a serious competition.
  • Obsessed with Food: Ino's lack of confidence in herself leads to her and Choji dining out a lot. Not that she can't cook, but as she puts it Choji "knows food" and she fears her cooking isn't up to Choji's par.
  • Gossipy Hens: Sakura jokingly notes how Ino is when she doesn't get her gossip fix, after Temari glosses over the juicy details of Shikumaru and her relationship.


Started a relationship with Ino after he offered emotional support following an ugly incident with some guy just trying to get in her pants. Their relationship is troubled but Chouji remains dedicated to Ino and is confident that in time they will work everything out.
  • Determinator: At least as far as Ino is concerned, Choji will not let her unconcious efforts to self-sabotage the pair's relationship stop him from loving and caring about her.
  • Parents Walk In at the Worst Time: The morning after Choji and Ino's first night together, Inojin nearly walks in on Choji naked in Ino's bed. Only some quick thinking and considerable effort to squeeze his bulk behind her bedroom door saves him.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Choji can't conceal his delight the first time Ino publicly calls him her boyfriend.
  • Stout Strength: A glimpse of Choji sans shirt demonstrates a considerable amount of his bulk is heavily layered muscle, not fat.


No longer bound by the birdcage seal thanks to Naruto. Accidentally impregnated Tenten, and then later married her.


A former party girl, impregnated by Neji and then married him. Currently settling into life as a Hyuga wife and soon-to-be mom.

Rock Lee

Met Arikusu, and upon discovering the squalid hellhole her apartment was, his honor insisted that she move in with him until she found a better place. Everyone can see the pair love each other. Shame they can't see it themselves.


Currently dating Hanabi, although Moegi has caused some strife in their relationship. Plagued with thoughts of how hot a threesome would be.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Fantasizes about Hanabi and Moegi. Subverted, however: it is treated as an entirely rational thought for a young man to have, and he is advised to be open with his thoughts to Hanabi and Moegi, but also make sure all three are trusting and comfortable in their relationships with each other before actually trying, and not to be disappointed if it never comes to pass.


Currently dating Konohamaru, although Moegi has caused some strife in their relationship.
  • Badass Longcoat: She gains one as part of her mission gear. It goes surprisingly well with the crop-top and short shorts that comprises the rest of her mission gear.


Has a huge crush on Hanabi, and has caused some strife in her relationship with Konohamaru. Slowly working to regain the trust of Hanabi and Team Ebisu.

Hiashi Hyūga

Burdened leader of the Hyūga clan. While known as a difficult man to please, especially concerning his daughters, he mostly approves of Hinata's relationship with Naruto.
  • Overprotective Dad: Wants "no funny business" between Naruto and Hinata, and requires them to sleep in separate rooms as a requirement for approval of their cohabitation. When called on the difference between Naruto's relationship with Hinata and Neji/Tenten or Konohamaru/Hanabi, he simply replies that Naruto is a known pervert and requires more rules.
  • Running Gag: Winds up drawing his sword and threatening Naruto with it multiple times.
  • The Chains of Commanding: Hiashi actually accepts Naruto as a suitable boyfriend for Hinata, but the rest of the Hyūga clan does not. Hiashi governs rather than commands his clan, and as such must accept the clan's disapproval and either forbid the relationship or cast Hinata out of the clan - unless Naruto challenges the clan for it is honor and wins.
  • Tranquil Fury: When he learns "why" Neji proposed to Tenten, he calmly sips his tea while waiting for a servant to bring his sword.


The Fifth Hokage and doctor at the Konoha Hospital. The burdens of being Hokage are starting to wear heavily upon her. Currently in a relationship with a resurrected and newly awakened Jiraya.
  • The Chains of Commanding: They bear ever-increasing weight on Tsunade the longer she lasts as Hokage. At one point, after Hotaru and Jun violate their suspended sentences in order to rescue Iruka and Hanako, Tsunade has them arrested on orders of the village council. She later explained to Naruto that, despite the two having excellent reason for their violation, if she spent her influence to let them go free then she wouldn't have that influence to spend if something more important happened. It's not right, it's politics.
  • Determinator: Tsunade threw months of single-minded dedicated effort into figuring out how to free Jiraya and Asuma from their coma.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Tsunade shows no pity when Sakura injures her throat. She trained Sakura better than that, and Sakura's reliance on an auto-trigger for the Hundred-Strength Seal was making her sloppy in combat.
  • Dude, He's Like, in a Coma!: It took Jiraya's resurrected body being present for her to admit her love for him, which she sealed with a kiss. The kiss got through Jiraya's coma and inspired a perverted grin on his face.
  • Love Cannot Overcome: Tsunade's love for Naruto was not enough to eventually overcome her desperate need to leave Konoha.
  • Missing Mom: She raised Naruto the first four years of his life under the orders of the Third Hokage. Their relationship had a rocky beginning, but grew into deep love; unfortunately, bad memories of Konoha, Tsunade's guilt over Dan and Nawaki, and her terror that Naruto would share their fate drove her to leave, and Danzo stopped her from taking the Konoha jinchuuriki with her.



Former leader of Team 7 and current interim commander of ANBU. In a relationship with Anko.


Snake lady and leader of Anko's Angels. In a relationship with Kakashi.

Might Guy


Teacher at the academy. Currently parole officer and husband to Hotaru.


  • Ambadassador: Temari is assigned as the diplomatic liason between Suna and Konoha. Not that one was needed before, nor was Konoha expecting her, but so goes the legal fiction that keeps her and Shikamaru together without having to change her allegiance to Suna.
  • Elopement: Temari and Shikamaru get married in secret.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: After Shikumaru has his messenger duties stripped from him, Temari goes weeks without a word from him. After she catches up with him, she struggles between ripping him a new one or seducing him on the spot.
  • Women Are Delicate: Inverted: Temari is anything but weak and delicate, but she still castigates herself for being "such a girl" where Shikamaru is concerned.



  • What Have I Done: She eventually realizes Evil Sasuke is a monster beyond redemption, and betrays him to the Konoha assault team.
    • And later, realized she still loved him no matter how monstrous he was, and regretted her betrayal.


Resurrected multiple times, just to be tortured to death again. The last death didn't stick after Sakura and Karen got involved. Currently imprisoned in Konoha and re-establishing a long-dead relationship with Kiri.
  • Back from the Dead: Repeatedly thanks to Seireiko reviving him repeatedly for Evil Sasuke to torture to death. It finally sticks when Evil Sasuke isn't thorough enough. Sakura recognizes that he's still breathing and forces Karin to help her heal him.


One of the Sound Four, she survived Temari's assault only to be sold to Seireiko. Seireiko used her as a drug-addicted disposable thief until Mina saved her life and helped cure her addiction. Currently a prisoner of Konoha and (grugingly) probationary member of Anko's Angels.
  • Amazon Brigade: probational member of Anko's Angels.
  • Descent into Addiction: Was purposely addicted to drugs based on soldier pills by Seireiko to control her. When he sent her after the Namikaze scroll, he deliberately gave her a reduced dose as an incentive to succeed. When she fails and is captured, the result is not pretty at all.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Is pretty much forced to join Anko's Angels, but comes to realize she really does like and respect them anyways.
  • Madam Swears-A-Lot: Every other word.

Minato Namikaze

Resurrected on accident, Minato used his brief newfound life to bond with and teach Naruto. His time limit expired during Naruto and Hinata's wedding.
  • Back from the Dead: A strange interaction between Seireiko's evil shadow clone technique and the chakra Minato and Kuishina left behind to guide Naruto in dealing with the Kyuubi results in a temporary resurrection for both of them.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Minato has a very limited amount of chakra that will never regenerate, and it's what is keeping him alive. Any jutsu would only dramatically shorten his timespan.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Neither wants to go, but both face it with courage and knowing that Naruto has made a good life for himself.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Minato's resurrection lengthening jutsu works, but both he and Kushina - and Naruto too, eventually - fall afoul of the lotus-eater portion of Seireiko's multi-layered regenerating control jutsu on the sacrificial clone.
  • Resurrected Romance: Being temorarily resurrected hasn'treduced the love Minato and Kushina feel for each other - indeed it only urges the two to make the most of the time they have.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: The resurrection left the two with a short lifespan before their chakra was depleted and the resurrection undid itself. Minato increases the timespan using a clone of himself created by Seireiko's more typical resurrection jutsu, but even that proves all too temporary.

Kushina Uzumake

Resurrected on accident, Kushina used her brief newfound life to bond with Naruto and Hinata. Her time limit expired during Naruto and Hinata's wedding.
  • Back from the Dead: A strange interaction between Seireiko's evil shadow clone technique and the chakra Minato and Kuishina left behind to guide Naruto in dealing with the Kyuubi results in a temporary resurrection for both of them.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Neither wants to go, but both face it with courage and knowing that Naruto has made a good life for himself.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Minato's resurrection lengthening jutsu works, but both he and Kushina - and Naruto too, eventually - fall afoul of the lotus-eater portion of Seireiko's multi-layered regenerating control jutsu on the sacrificial clone.
  • Resurrected Romance: Being temorarily resurrected hasn'treduced the love Minato and Kushina feel for each other - indeed it only urges the two to make the most of the time they have.
  • Together in Death: Minato can either extend the time limit on both Kushina's and his resurrection,or permanently restore Kushina to life at the expense of his own. Naruto and Kushina both discuss the matter heavily, but ultimately Kushina decides better for both to go at the same time and be together forever, rather than Kushina stay and be a burden to a grown son starting his own family and be without her husband
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Kushina and Tsunade throw a lot of shade at each other when they met, and briefly had a lot of friction over who was Naruto'sactual mother until Naruto forced the issue. Yet at the same time, Tsunade was more than happy to let Kushina useher Uzumaki knowledge of seals to help figure out Jiraya's coma, when she wouldn't let anyone else help.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: The resurrection left the two with a short lifespan before their chakra was depleted and the resurrection undid itself.


Resurrected and enslaved by Seireiko, Jiraya was sent to assault the Konoha hospital to gather genetic information. Naruto shattered his mind-controlling face mask, rendering him comatose thanks to Seireiko's multi-layered control seal. Tsunade eventually managed to awaken him using a modified forehead protector. Currently in a very new relationship with Tsunade.


Resurrected and enslaved by Seireiko, Asuma was sent to assault the Konoha hospital to gather genetic information. Shikamaru shattered his mind-controlling face mask, rendering him comatose thanks to Seireiko's multi-layered control seal. Tsunade eventually managed to awaken him using a modified forehead protector. Currently reestablishing his former marriage to Kurenai.


Thought dead in the assault on the Akatsuki base, he's actually very much alive. Currently working through the setback, and still determined to resurrect Madara and bring about the Eye of the Moon plan.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Choko will train every single waking moment, and actively strive to shed her distaste for killing, or Tobi will slaughter her outright for being weak and useless.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Tobi wants a perfectly obedient and subservient emotionless torturer and killer at his side, and Choko will either become so at the cost of her soul, or die trying.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: Choko attempts to seduce him, but he humiliates her for the trouble.
  • Offing the Annoyance: Tobi has had a bad time sine the Ataksuki have been destroyed. So when presented with a team of common bandits using the same name, and two of them prove to be mouthy, he casually butchers all but the one who kept her mouth shut.

     Original Characters 


Mina Mikon

Med-nin and heir of the Mikon Clan, two things that mix very poorly. Possesses the Nokuro Nen jutsu like the rest of her clan, but unlike the rest she recognizes it's drawbacks and refuses to use it. Adores Sakura, and currently dating Kiba.
  • Blind Mistake: Cannot tell the difference between Naruto and Kiba at close range without her glasses.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: she takes a lot of abuse from her father with little complaint, but when Goro starts making trouble with the Inuzuka clan, she finally stands up to him.
  • Cool Big Sis: Her devoted opinion of Sakura.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: On the extremely rare occasion Mina uses the Nokuro Nen, she becomes an unstoppable juggernaut, unable (or maybe just unwilling) to cease fighting until her opponent is dead and dismembered.
  • Determinator: Will not let the fact that Tayuya just assaulted the compound and injured her stop her from saving Tayuya's life, getting her appropriate medical attention, and then participating in a long-term effort to cure Tayuya's drug addiction.
    • She has to last five minutes against her father without using the Nokuro Nen if she wants her life with Kiba and med-nin training. Goron goes all-out, severely injuring her, but nothing he does can make her give up or use the jutsu.
  • Groin Attack: Nails Kiba right in the crotch by accident every time they try (and fail) to have sex.
  • Klingon Scientists Get No Respect: Had the misfortune of being born to the Mikon clan (famed for their Blood Knight tendencies.) Her father forces her into extreme physical training if she wants to be a med-nin, trying force her to give it up, embrace the Nokuro Nen, and become a Blood Knight herself.
  • Meganekko: Wears a rather large pair of glasses and is quite cute. She is more conventionally attractive in contacts, but hates to wear them because they make her eyes itch.
  • My Greatest Failure: The first time Mina used the Nokuro Nen, she beat her own teammate until he was hospitalized for six months. And she swore never to use it again, no matter the demands of her father, unless there was no other choice.

Miko Mikon

Wife of Goro and mother of Mina, she's a former ANBU who married into the Mikon clan. Goro made her promise to kill him if he ever became a monster to his children like the rest of his clan. After he severely injured Mina and then cast her out of the clan for her "weakness" in not embracing the Nokuro Nen, Miko carried through on her promise.

Hotaru Yamanaka

Originally a missing-nin and traitor to Konoha, Hotaru turned against her team and returned to Konoha. On probation, she retired and became a full-time mom. She slowly fell in love with Iruka after the death of Hanako's father, the two eventually marry.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The Chi no Hana is a rare flower with powerful medical uses that requires one drop of blood a day to grow. Hanako weaponizes it with a mummification seal scroll impregnated with thousands of Chi no Hana seeds, with which she kills Arata. Afterwards, she reminds herself to have Inoichi gather the beautiful flowers left behind.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Once, she befriended Naruto as a young child, and then betrayed him in a ploy to steal the Nine-Tails chakra. Now, she deeply regrets her actions, and seeks forgiveness from Naruto.
  • Easily Forgiven: It's obvious Hotaru's youthful betrayal of Naruto still bothers him, but he still forgives her, because he decided to let all his old wounds go after he became a shinobi.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Rokuro beating the crap out of Ino was just the trigger for Hotaru to turn face again.
  • Knife Nut: She has quite a fondness for using blades she keeps stored in scrolls.
  • Mama Bear: Threaten Iruka or Hanako, and Hotaru will pull out all the stops to save them, probation be damned.
  • Reality Ensues: Even if she did it to save her fiance and daughter, she still violated her probation by leaving the village, and is subsequently re-imprisoned.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Hotaru and Iruka slowly fall in love after the death of Masaru.
  • Retired Badass: After her capture and probation, Hotaru decides to hang up the headband and be a full-time mom for Hanako. Although that doesn't stop her in the least from kicking ass to protect her family if needs be.
  • They Do: Hotaru and Iruka, eventually.


Daughter of Hotaru and adoptive daughter of Iruka. Has a bit of the Nine-Tails chakra after inheriting it from her birth father.


Followed Hotaru to Konoha, currently on probation alongside her. Comes from a clan of hereditary servants, and is comfortable (and superb) in that role.

Nishimura Hideki

A wealthy old man, allied with Konoha, who uses his wealth to collect and study the rarest, oldest, and most valuable texts in the entire world. Guards a number of scrolls on behalf of Konoha, most notably the Namekaze scroll (until he returned it to it's rightful owner, Naruto)
  • Cool Old Guy: He is happy to teach from his collection, and is grateful to Konoha ninja for their protection and happily supports them while at his compound.
  • Great Big Library of Everything: His private collection includes some of the rarest, oldest, and most valuable texts in the entire world, covering a vast swath of knowledge, with information freely shared with any scholar.


The heavyweight muscle of Anko's Angels. Former student of Might Guy. She was left in a coma due to massive injury following the assault on Seireiko's main base - although circumstances have recently changed.


The scout and infiltration specialist of Anko's Angels. Outwardly very chipper (and openly perverted), it's all a mask over troubled history. She's actually one of the Eight Ninja Yokai, who turned on the rest, and defected to Konoha. Waiting for her betrayal to catch up with her.


The swordswoman (and trainee leader) of Anko's Angels. Stoic to a fault. User of the Ryuchi powers and sword. Currently in a will-they-won't-they situation with Sai. Stoic and reserved for good reason. When her facade breaks and her emotions run unchecked, her Ryuchi powers turn her into a real and immensely destructive dragon.


Met Rock Lee while doing kareoke and was instantly attracted to him. When Lee discovered the squalid hellhole her apartment was, his honor insisted that she move in with him until she found a better place. Currently training in taijutsu with Lee and Might Guy. Everyone can see Lee and Arikusu love each other. Shame they can't see it themselves.


Itachi's former girlfriend and mother of Bae. When Sasuke informed her about the resurrection of Itachi, she initially rejected a reunion out of hand, before deciding the opposite and following Sasuke to Konoha. Currently tentatively reestablishing her former relationship with Itachi.
  • Fantasy Forbidding Mother: Is determined that her son will not grow up to be a shinobi.

A little fox rescued by Naruto and kept as a family pet. Has a strange connection to Kurama.


Seireiko Hyūga

Traitor to Konoha, student of Orochimaru, exiled from the Hyūga clan. His unique Byakugan allows him to see and interact with the dead. His signature jutsu resurrects the dead at the cost of several other lives. His goal isn't perfectly clear, but it involves raiding villages for genetic data and the Namekaze scroll. Serves as the Big Bad for Naruhina Chronicles.
  • Back from the Dead: His whole purpose for being is to perfect his resurrection jutsu, and use the results to destroy Konoha.
  • Bad Boss: Casually murders his subordinates when they learn too much of his plans.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The Namekaze scroll is chock-full of blood magic, jutsu involving human sacrifice, and other unsavory stuff. Naturally Seireiko is willing to go to some pretty deep extremes to lay his hands on it.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He is very calm and collected, even as he's crushing you in battle.
  • Fallen Hero: Seireiko was once a respected and capable member of the Hyūga clan, but his obsession with resurrection using human sacrifice and his hubris concerning his unique variety of Byakugan caused the Hyūga clan to turn on him, leading to his defection. Considering Orochimaru was his sensei, none of this is surprising.
  • Human Sacrifice: a key ingredient in his resurrection jutsu.
  • I See Dead People: His unique Byakugan, partially inheriting the spirit medium abilities of his mother, allow him to see dead souls, along with it's other uses.
  • Life Drinker
  • The Man Behind the Man: It is implied that he is behind all the assaults on Konoha (and other villages) in order to acquire both genetic data for his resurrection jutsu, and also the only copy of the Namekaze scroll.
  • Orcus on His Throne: He prefers to keep his hands clean and leave his minions to do the fighting. But he is still a Hyūga, and can throw down with the best of them when he must, and summon an army of your own personal evil shadow clones to kick ass on top of that.
  • Overarching Villain: Seireiko is this for the series. Although a still-alive Tobi may be planning to give him a run for the money.


Missing-nin and member of Masaru's team of rogue ninja, alongside Hotaru and Jun. His skill is taking over the bodies of other people. Currently deceased, his soul having been fed to the Nine-Tails.


Traitor to Konoha, who worked for Mori-sama and later Seireiko as a hired thug. He's definitely regretting his life choices, although he's too much of a jerk to find a path to redemption. Currently in a, er, "it's complicated" with Sadako.
  • Asshole Victim: Yori is so much of a jerk you can't help but cheer a little every time he gets his ass kicked.
  • Freudian Excuse: Mori manipulates Yori by caring for his injured little sister - which is actually just a doll and some genjutsu simulating a very dead little sister.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Seriously cannot make up his mind if he's actively malicious towards Konoha and its shinobi, or just passively indifferent to any negative outcomes they suffer.
  • Jerkass: Whether actively assisting Konoha's enemies, or desperately trying to escape the hell he's made of his life, either way Yori is a complete jerk.
  • Left for Dead: By his own choice after his and Naruto's latest fight. Not that it takes, of course.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Yori takes a kunai meant for Naruto for just this reason.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Demonstrated multiple times, first and most prominently with Tenten.


Raised by Mori-sama to be an assassin, she helped manipulate Yori with genjutsu of his dead little sister. Currently in a "it's complicated" situation with Yori, although it's clear she loves him deeply.


Konoha elder working with Seireiko, he was captured after the Chunin exam bombing, and then later killed by Sadako to silence him.


Leader of a group of mercenaries hired by Seireiko to assault Konoha. The assault failed in part due to Takeo's incompetence as an effective leader, and he was killed in the process.


Heir of the Kyouko clan, which values power and fighting ability above all. Her clan joined Konoha after being betrayed by Takeo. Nanami is currently lusting after Naruto and in competition with Hinata for his affections (or, at least, so she thinks).
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Wants Naruto so she can have strong kids with a powerful father and please her clan, and she will NOT take "No, I'm in a relationship with someone I deeply love" as an answer.
  • Cat Fight: in one chapter, Hinata confronts Naruto about the compromising position she found Nanami and Naruto in, and while Naruto manages to convince her it was not what she thought it was, she still states if Nanami were still present she would "Jyuuken her skinny little a-" before she catches herself.
    • In a later volume, Nanami and Hinata finally have it out. Several of Nanami's strikes do severe damage to Hinata's dress, threatening to expose a few intimate parts to the public.


Leader of ANBU and younger brother of Mizuke, he seeks to destroy Naruto for defeating his brother - although his basic honor insists on doing so by training Naruto properly if intensely, and then giving Naruto a fair chance to win and Tsunade and Kakashi a chance to catch him in the act. He put up one hell of a fight, but Hinata proved his match, kicking his ass and capturing him.
  • Baddie Flattery: Touji can't help approving of Naruto's ANBU training-enhanced skill, even as he's trying to kill Naruto.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: His loyalty to Konoha and ANBU versus his loyalty to Mizuke leads him to attempt revenge on Naruto, but doing so at first by proper training, if excessively intense and damaging to break Naruto's spirit, and when that fails then more directly, but leaving a confession behind for Kakashi to find.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Touji almost exclusively uses a variety of Earth release jutsu.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Naruto's training began as soon as he accepted, and the very first brief spar left Naruto with broken ribs. Naruto later admitted to Touji that, if not for his healing factor, the severe injuries Touji inflicted during training would have washed him out of ANBU.
  • Mind Manipulation: Hinata makes the mistake of leaving Kurenai, Shino and Kiba to clean up after she beats Touji, so Touji returns the favor by mind-controlling the trio and sending them back to kill her and Naruto. She doesn't make the same mistake twice.
  • Quicksand Sucks: Touji uses an all-consuming mud earth-style jutsu as his finishing blow against Naruto. It would have worked, too, if Hinata had not smashed Touji into a tree, then kept him occupied in combat while Sasuke, Kakasi, and Yamato could free Naruto from the mud trap.
  • Unpleasant Parent Reveal: Touji reveals Naruto's true parents during their fight to get under his skin, after Naruto demonstrates his first use of the Flying Raijin jutsu. However, Naruto takes it as a lie, at least until Tsunade later confirms it.





A member of the Neo-Akatsuki, she was the only survivor after Tobi butchered the rest for their insolence. Currently training to be Tobi's emotionless assassin, although she is struggling to retain her humanity.

Goro Mikon

Leader of the Mikon clan, abusive father to Mina, and complete contemptible asshole. Poisoned to death by his wife, Miko, after he severely injured Mina in combat, to fulfill her youthful promise not to let him become a monster like the rest of his clan.
  • Abusive Parents: He despises the weakness of his daughter choosing medical-nin training over the Nokuro Nen Blood Knight training, and openly emotionally abuses Mina to force her to change her mind. When she finally gets fed up and challenges Goro, he's only too happy to switch to his fists and beat her until she can't walk, see, or cry.
  • Blood Knight: The Nokuro Nen ostensibly just suppresses pain, but also suppresses emotion, permanently if the jutsu is overused, turning the user into another one of these.
  • Dying Declaration of Love: while dying from being poisoned by his wife, he quietly confesses that he wished he had enough emotion to feel love for Miko one last time.
  • Tin Man: Overuse of the Nokuro Nen has left him with few emotions beyond anger and contempt for the weak - including his own daughter.
  • Used To Be A Nice Guy: Was one genuinely nice and even heroic - but he knew where his path led, and made Miko promise to kill him if he became a monster like his own parents. He did, so she eventually did.

Hanshiro Yamauchi

Heir to a merchant clan with Hyuga business dealings, he falls in lust at first sight of Hinata.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Falls in lust with Hinata at first sight, and when his mercantile connections with the Hyūga clan fail to convince Hiashi to call off her wedding to Naruto, he decides to have her kidnapped instead.


Arrogant leader of a mercenary team, hired by Hanshiro Yamauchi to kidnap Hinata and kill Naruto.
  • Who Are You?: It's not until Naruto and Hinata prove to be extremely resourceful in battle that he finally asks the name of his target. Naruto quietly recites his name and lineage in response.
    Naruto: My name is Naruto Uzumaki, son of Kushina Uzumaki, son of the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namekaze, adopted son of the Fifth, Tsunade. Student of Kakashi Hatake and the Toad Sage Jiraya. Jinchuuriki of the Nine-Tailed fox, Kurama. And you just tried to take my wife.

Evil Sasuke

Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • Cloning Blues: Is well aware he is not the original, but definitely schemes to be the "only" Sasuke.
  • Clone Degeneration: He is Sasuke's equal in skill, but has much lower chakra reserves.
  • Dead Guy on Display: He keeps the rotting corpses of Itachi around as grisly trophies.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies thanks to being turned into a walking chakra bomb.
  • Evil Counterpart: For all that the real Sasuke let go of anger and hate, his clone has embraced both further, with absolutely no redeeming characteristics to restrain him.
  • Fantastic Drug: Drinks multiple test tubes of Super Serum as a last-ditch attempt to kill Sasuke. The drugs do make him more poweful a la Mr. Hyde, but also turn him into a ticking chakra bomb.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: His Level 1 Curse Mark is permanently activated, giving him the appearance of horrible disfiguring facial and body scars.
  • Hostage Situation: Takes Sakura hostage in order to lure the real Sasuke into his torture chamber, hoping that Sasuke would be broken by the revelation - or maybe even approve of Evil Sasuke's methods.
  • Torture Technician: He has Seireiko resurrect Itachi on a regular basis so he can torture his brother to death the thousand ways Sasuke dreamed of. His current count is 187.

How well does it match the trope?
