Naruto The Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow

    Koyuki Kazahana
Voiced by: Yuko Kaida (JP), Kari Wahlgren (EN), Gabriela Cárdenas and Cristina Hernández (child) (Latin America)

An actress who goes under the name Yukie Fujikaze. She's really the princess of the Land of Snow in hiding after her uncle had taken it over.

    Dotō Kazahana
Voiced by: Tsutomu Isobe (JP), Lex Lang (EN), Moisés Palacios (Latin America)

The main villain of the movie and uncle to Koyuki that has usurped the Land of Snow from her father.

  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of the first film.
  • Evil Uncle: As stated, he's Koyuki's uncle and had designs on his brother's throne for awhile.
  • An Ice Person: Par for the course coming from a land of snow.
  • Powered Armor: Wears chakra armor which gives him limitless chakra as well as defense against ninjutsu and genjutsu.
  • Punched Across the Room: Naruto hits him with the Rainbow Resengan in the climax of the movie and sends him both spinning and flying into out of the generators.
  • Pyrrhic Villainy: He goes through all the trouble to get Koyuko's pendent thinking it'll activate a weapon that her father left behind. Turns out it was just a generator that will melt the snow and allow spring to temporarily come to the land. All his efforts amounted to was finally activating it after so long. The reason it was delayed? He had killed his brother before he had the chance to activate the thing.

From left to right: Fubuki, Nadare, Mizore.

Mizore voiced by: Holly Kaneko (JP), Kyle Hebert (EN), Leonardo García (Latin America)

Doto's three henchmen: Nadare Rōga, Fubuki Kakuyoku and Mizore Fuyukuma

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Nadare full stop, he even names his attacks after himself. Though to be fair, his name does describe the technique rather accurately.
  • The Big Guy: Mizore is the largest of trio and has immense strength.
  • An Ice Person: Again, all are from an ice country so pretty obvious they have attacks that are ice or snow base.
  • Powered Armor: Like Doto they all wear chakra armor to enhance their abilities. It winds up backfiring for Fubuki and Mizore however when they end up colliding and their armor cracks and blows the both of them up.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad: Pretty much created to give the rest of Team 7 someone to fight.
  • The Rival: Nardare sees himself as one to Kakashi since they fought before in the past. Kakashi doesn't really acknowledges him however.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Fubuki, the only female on the team.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair:
    • Fubuki has pink hair.
    • Nadare has light purple hair.
    • Mizore has dark purple hair.

Naruto the Movie: Legend of the Stone of Gelel

Voiced by: Gaamon Kai (JP), Roger Craig Smith (EN)

A knight that works for Haido in order to find the Gelel stone. He's really the heir to his clan that was destroyed by Haido himself.

  • The Atoner: By the end of the film to make up for his actions and to honor the sacrifice of some of his friends who unwillingly were made into artificial knights. Their spirits at one point manage to shield him from a attack by Haido
  • Heel–Face Turn: Started off opposing Naruto but once he finds out the truth, he switches sides.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts it while sealing away the Gelel stone but Naruto saves him at the last moment.
  • You Killed My Father: Toward Haido.

Voiced by: Akio Nojima (JP), Douglas Rye (EN)

A supposed priest searching for the Stone of Gelel to find utopia. In truth he's a power hungry warlord who wants the stone to take over the world.

  • Ambiguous Situation: He claims that the book that he learned about the legend of Gelel from was something he bought. However, because of how dangerous said power is, the book in question was put into hiding and the owner would never dare to sell it. Even though he never confirms or denies it, it's highly possible Haido murdered the owner and stole the book. Given his ambitions, this is plausible.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of the second film.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Thick, massive orange eyebrows.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He's not the peace loving Well-Intentioned Extremist he projects himself as.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Exploited. Temujin's family was murdered by a man with vampire-like fangs. When Haido growls at him for refusing an order, Temujin finally notices Haido's sharp fangs.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He drops his act when he learns that the Stone of Gelel could be destroyed.
  • Hate Sink: His kindly priest appearance is just a disguise for the monster he truly is, his child followers were nothing more but pawns who were tricked into giving up their lives and free will to be his soldiers and his quest for a utopia is a lie for world domination, and he takes delight in admitting his evil when he's exposed.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: His monster motif when he uses the Gelel stone as a symbolism for his two-faced nature.
  • Kick the Dog: Laughs at Temujin for unknowingly helping his parents' killer for years.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Tricked Temujin into helping him find the Gelel Stone with him unaware he was his clan's killer.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: His claims to want the stone's power to bring a utopia are a lie.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: His knight henchman are really children who're morphed into knights by the gelel stone.
  • Slasher Smile: His big, toothy grin lets Temujin finally recognize his parents' killer.
  • Too Dumb to Live: During his final attacks on Naruto. He dismisses one of his attack despite the fact it broke through his shields. He takes one of Naruto's rasengans head on... and it burrows right through his chest and eventually his heart. Granted, he had taken a Rasengan beforehand that had resulted in him getting mangled and his neck twisted a full 180, yet was fully healed by the gelel in the mines. After taking the attack, he tries to heal again, but the damage is too thorough this time to be restored from.

    Haido's Knights 
Fugai voiced by: Urara Takano (JP), Kari Wahlgren (EN)
Kamira voiced by: Sachiko Kojima (JP), Jennifer Hale (EN)
Ranke voiced by: Houko Kuwashima (JP), Megan Hollingshead (EN)

Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom

Voiced by: Akio Ohtsuka

Prince of the Crescent Moon Kingdom. A kindly if not obese man who doesn't really know the meaning behind ruling a kingdom...initially.

  • Big Eater: In his current state, said to have started doing so after his wife left him.
  • Face Death with Dignity: It doesn't come to that thankfully, but when put on a plank with a noose around his neck. He initially sobs hysterically. But then realizes what his wife and father were trying to tell him about ruling a kingdom and eventually stops and composes himself to keep himself from falling.
  • Meaningful Name: His name can be read as "to wax" or "to be full" which, besides being aot for the monarch of a kingdom named for a Moon phase, references how he's described as gaining a lot of weight and the movie ends with him having dropped some of it from Character Development.
  • Nice Guy: Compared to his son, he's pretty modest at the start and doesn't act like a prick.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: A trait of his at the start since he's been spoiled most of his life and spends money on a whim (he buys an entire circus at the start of the movie). His wife left him for this reason and refuses to take him back until he learns there's more to ruling a kingdom then wealth and power.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Somewhat, he eventually does realize what's important to ruling a kingdom, refuses to give satisfaction to Shabadaba to seeing him blubber after this revelation and even manages to aid Naruto in beating Ishidate and during the credits we see him working out and starting to gain muscles.

Voiced by: Kyosuke Ikeda (JP), Kari Wahlgren (EN)

Michiru's bratty son and thus second prince to the Crescent Kingdom.

  • The Archer: Fairly good with a bow and arrow.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Starts off like this at first.
  • Chekhov's Skill: His archery which comes into play when he has to fire an arrow at the noose around his father's neck.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: Like his father, he wanted the sabertooth tiger because it was rare but when it wouldn't make friends with him. He nearly abandoned it during a rainstorm on the boat ride back to his kingdom. Some choice words from Naruto eventually break him of this and the situation in the kingdom even moreso.
  • Took a Level in Badass: If you can make friends with a sabertooth tiger and ride it to go save your father while shooting at a moving target...yeah you've pretty much done this.

Voiced by: Umeji Sasaki (JP), Terrence Stone (EN)

One of the ministers who preform a coup on the Crescent Kingdom and tries to take it over.

  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Part of the royal court but wanted to up his status.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Ishidate being the one who throws things into motion.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: He manages to capture Michiru but rather then kill him outright. He had him stand on a plank with a noose around his neck hoping he would fall. Michiru manages to compose himself and buy time for Team 7 and the resistance to think of a plan to save him.
  • Dastardly Whiplash: Has a thick mustache growing from his bangs to his nose.
  • Dirty Coward: He only rose to power because of the mercenaries he hired. Without them, he's nothing.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: His ultimate fate after Ishidate accidentally grabs him with his stone glove turning him to the stone. Naruto's final attack on Ishidate breaks him to pieces in the impact.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Considering he has no combat to speak of. Yeah.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Michiru showing what he could be like if he just cared for money and power.
  • Treacherous Advisor: Was a close friend of the original king, but let his greed get the better of him.

Voiced by: Masashi Sugawara (JP), Christopher Corey Smith (EN)

A ninja mercenary hired by Shabadaba to help overthrow the Crescent Kingdom.

  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Shabadaba, though he's treated more as the main threat.

  • Hero Killer: Kills two resistance members via Literally Shattered Lives.
  • Oh, Crap!: His last expression after he gets the animals off him only to see Naruto bearing down on him with a Rasengan.
  • Taken for Granite: Has a glove that can turn anything it touches to stone.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As the fight against Naruto wears on, he become more stressed that such a young ninja can go toe to toe with him. So much so that when Shabadaba whines for him to go after Michru. He unknowingly grabs him with the stone glove by accident and turns him into a statue.

Karenbana voiced by: Haruhi Terada (JP), Cindy Robinson (EN)

Part of the Three Wandering Ninja with Ishidate who help take over the Crescent Moon Kingdom.

  • Squishy Wizard: Karenbanda's main power is using poison to case illusions and slow down reaction times. Sakura takes her out in one hit after she manages to find her location in the midst of the illusion.

Kongō voiced by: Hisao Egawa (JP), Keith Silverstein (EN)

Part of the Three Wandering Ninja with Ishidate who help take over the Crescent Moon Kingdom.

  • Dumb Muscle: He preferred to simply pound his opponents with sheer force rather than using strategy.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: With all his physical strength and endurance, Kongō is rather slow and lacks strategic skills.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He leered in a sadistic way when he approached Hikaru with the intention of killing the child.

Naruto Shippuden the Movie

Voiced by: Ayumi Fujimura (JP), Laura Bailey (EN)

The daughter of the priestess of the originally sealed away Moryo. She is needed to make sure he stays that way.

  • Assist Character: She amplified Naruto's Rasengan with her priestess chakra to much greater magnitudes.
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: Besides from calling Sakura fat and nearly getting whapped over the head, she repeatedly showed a snooty attitude to basically anyone who annoyed her. She did this so much that Neji judo chopped her out cold because her complaining and resistance was that noisy and hazardous to the Leaf's escape when under attack.
  • Cry Cute: She loses it when Naruto forces out the hidden sorrow she's trying to repress from losing scores of attendants protecting her.
  • Damsel in Distress: For the first half of the movie, later justified in that this has literally comprised her whole life due to her foresight and role in being the keystone to Moryo's revival.
    • Damsel out of Distress: When her latent maiden powers finally awaken, she completely escapes this fate and even helps to bring down Moryo herself, along with the help of Naruto.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Due to being able to see the future and when someone's going to die, she's rather callous about everything. Her time with Naruto and his unwillingness to believe in fate naturally changes that.
  • Disney Death: Was thought killed by Moryo's henchmen but it turned out it was a decoy acting in her place.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Intentionally shows rudeness and apathy toward people to keep them at bay so that they never draw close enough for her to miss them if they up and die. Unfortunately, it didn't work and Naruto berated her really hard for insulting someone who gave his whole life to her when he died and had served her so loyally he gave up his very identity forever to save her life.
  • Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: Her geta sandals fall off when she gets thrown over a ledge. She spends the rest of the movie barefoot, and it shows when the bottoms of her feet become sodden in volcanic ash when she enters the volcano, averting Beauty Is Never Tarnished. It also gives Ironic Echo back to a scene where an attendant pampered her feet in water and now he's gone and she's in a gritty circumstance but bearing it nonetheless, gaining a thicker skin as it were.
  • Miko: More or less her role.
  • Palette Swap: Shion can more or less pass for Hinata's twin once you dye her hair.
  • Screw Destiny: Her attitude later after hanging out with Naruto.
  • Ship Tease: Oh so much with Naruto, culminating in the final scene where she basically asks him to father her children and he unwittingly agrees. Imagine how much explanation it involved to clear that up before the Leaf ninja went back home.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After she runs out into the woods to cry, practically all of her defense mechanisms of jerk vanish.
  • What Measure Is a Mook?: Subverted; it later turns out she is full of self-loathing because so many of her attendants get killed trying to save her.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: How she initially thought at first.

Voiced by: Seizo Kato (JP), Daran Norris (EN)

A demon that was sealed away by priestess. He is trying to free himself by making sure the priestess daughter is killed before he can be revived.

  • Scaled Up: A giant dragon with multiple heads. It's practically a hydra.

  • Bad Boss: To his henchmen, ironically he's killed by Moryo himself
  • Deadly Doctor: A rogue medical-nin.
  • The Dragon: Acts on Moryo's behalf but not the main threat.
  • Mouth of Sauron: Initially acts this way by letting Moryao posse him and give out order. Least till Moryo strong enough to act on his own.
  • Self-Surgery: To allow Moryo to posse him, he willingly cuts open his stomach then sew himself back up once Moryo's in his body.

  • Fiery Redhead: She has red hair and is just as temperamental as Sakura.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Her feelings Shinnō are so obvious that even Naruto picks up on them, though she vehemently denies them. It turns out that her feelings are one-sided to a cruel extent.

  • Horrible Judge of Character: She completely trusts her minister Anrokuzan from the start and adamantly refuses to believe Naruto and Minato's insistence that he's evil until she sees the proof herself, said proof being a legion of puppets in place of her adoring public.
  • Leitmotif: The song "To Light" (Hikari ni Wa in the original dub), which she sings a few times throughout the film, and which she used to sing with her late mother.

  • Ungrateful Bitch: When she first meets Naruto properly, he saves her after she's pushed off of a high balcony. She jumps to conclusions and assumes him to be a villain, proceeding to slap the shit out of our hero and elbow him in the face while screaming at him to let her go.

  • Exotic Eye Designs: The Sharingan look quite different from normal eyes.
  • Evil Counterpart: He's a corrupted Naruto who went rogue from the village.
  • Fallen Hero: He is his world's version of Naruto, but he became a missing-nin.
  • Fusion Dance:
    • His nine masked beasts combine into the Nine Tailed Fox.
    • Tobi merges with him at the end of the movie.
  • The Heavy: Although Tobi is the main antagonist of Road to Ninja, he can only appear in the other world in an intangible form, so he is forced to rely on the Masked Man to carry out his bidding.
  • Intangible Man: When he is controlled by Tobi, all attacks pass through him.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: A trailer released shortly after Road to Ninja came out spoiled both him being Menma and him getting a Sharingan.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: The Masked Man and his Nine Masked Beasts are the antagonists of Road to Ninja alongside Tobi (who also wears a mask).
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: His hair is actually blond, but being possessed by Tobi turned it black.
  • Red Herring: Given his hairstyle and hair colour, we are most likely meant to think he is Sasuke. However, he's actually Menma, this world's version of Naruto.
  • The Reveal: He's an evil Naruto, which is a major plot twist.
  • Shout-Out: The methods he used destroys most of Konoha is similar to Pain's attack on Konoha in the main universe as he uses a technique very similar to the Shinra Tensei. His methods of combat also greatly resemble Pain's, relying on the Nine Masked Beasts in similar fashion to the Six Paths of Pain.

Konoha ninja of the genjutsu world

    In General 
  • Alternate Self: Each of the members superficially resemble their counterparts, but have their most defining personality aspect inverted.
  • The Bus Came Back: Returned for the anime-only two parter "Road to Tenten", which focuses on Tenten's Infinite Tsukuyomi dream. Minus Tenten's counterpart, naturally.
  • For Want of a Nail: The genjutsu world was supposedly supposed to perfectly reflect the original, but Naruto and Sakura's presence causes severe changes. Most notably, Sakura's parents were the ones who lost their lives in the Nine-Tails attack, not Naruto's.
  • Not as You Know Them: All the personalities and quirks that we've come to know have been reversed to switched around. For instance, Kakashi is energetic and punctual, while Guy considers himself to be an old man who lost his youth a long time ago.

    Sakura Haruno 

Voiced by: Chie Nakamura (JP), Kate Higgins (EN)

Sakura's counterpart. She doesn't appear in the movie proper, but in Episode 271 of the anime.

  • 100% Adoration Rating: While Naruto became a village pariah when his parents sacrificed himself due to his heritage being hidden, Sakura's lineage is well-known and she's praised as the daughter of heroes.
  • Hero of Another Story: As mentioned, she appears in episode 271 that serves as an inversion of the movie's plot; namely, she has to cope with how different the real Konoha is.

    Sasuke Uchiha 

Voiced by: Noriaki Sugiyama (JP), Yuri Lowenthal (EN)

Sasuke's counterpart. Not only did he never betray the village, but he is the village playboy.

  • Good Costume Switch: One of only three members of the Konoha 11 to wear a different outfit than his real world counterpart, presumably due to never training with Orochimaru.
  • Handsome Lech: Constantly flirting and courting the various girls of the village, and as good-looking as his original counterpart.
  • Something About a Rose: Woos Sakura by offering her a rose. Later revealed to do this to EVERY girl.

    Hinata Hyuga 

Voiced by: Nana Mizuki (JP), Stephanie Sheh (EN)

Hinata's counterpart. Instead of the shy sweetheart we know, she's far more confident and aggressive.

  • Adaptational Badass: As seen in the "Road to Tenten" filler, she can use the Heavenly Spin and Shadow Clones, something the real Hinata has never seen using.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Gets VERY possessive of Naruto.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She has a very short fuse. Expect her to threat somebody to gouge their eyes out whenever she's present.
  • Hotter and Sexier: Rather than the modest outfit the normal Hinata wears, her outfit consists of an open jacket, short-shorts and a crop top.
  • Yandere: Borderline example; she threatens to kill Sakura if she and Naruto were on a date, but never acts on it.

    Kiba Inuzuka 

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (JP), Kyle Hebert (EN)

Kiba's counterpart. A cat lover who is constantly at odds with Akamaru.

    Shino Aburame 

Voiced by: Shinji Kawada (JP), Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

Shino's counterpart. A gardener who hates insects.

  • Flat Character: The member of the group to get the least characterisation. Fittingly enough.
  • Lost in Translation: In the original Japanese, his line "I hate bugs" is pronounced in a similar way to "I hate being ignored", a nod to the real-world Shino's running gag. Sadly this doesn't work in English.

    Shikamaru Nara 

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (JP), Tom Gibis (EN)

Shikamaru's counterpart. A scatterbrain who enjoys goofing off and eating.

  • Big Eater: Implied to take this role from Choji; he's introduced trying to convince his team to go out for a meal.
  • The Ditz: To contrast his counterpart's intelligence, he struggles with basic math.
  • Vitriolic Best Friends: Unlike the real Shikamaru, this one doesn't get along with Choji.

    Choji Akimichi 

Voiced by: Kentaro Ito (JP), Robbie Rist (EN)

Choji's counterpart. More in-shape than his counterpart, he doesn't like overeating.

    Ino Yamanaka 

Voiced by: Ryoka Yuzuki (JP), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (EN)

Ino's counterpart. Soft-spoken and gentle.

  • The Heart: She's introduced trying to break up an argument between Shikamaru and Choji, and later does the same between Hinata and Sakura.
  • Shrinking Violet: Seems more timid than her counterpart.

    Rock Lee 

Voiced by: Yoichi Masukawa (JP), Brian Donovan (EN)

Lee's counterpart. Almost exactly like his counterpart, save for an apparent fetish for women's underwear.

  • Alternate Self: While Episode 427 keeps most of the RTN cast the same as their debut movie, that episode's Rock Lee is the "normal" Lee of Tenten's Infinite Tsukiyomi dream, seen for a total of one panel in the manga. Thankfully, he lacks the original RTN!Lee's perversions.
  • Panty Thief: Which he then wears.

    Neji Hyuga 

Voiced by: Koichi Tochika (JP), Steve Staley (EN)

Neji's counterpart. A shameless pervert who uses his Byakugan to peep on the women's baths, and has an intense lust for his cousin.


Voiced by: Yukari Tamura (JP), Danielle Judovits (EN)

Tenten's counterpart. Unlike her counterpart, she's a klutz who frequently hurts herself using her own weapons.

  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She's covered in bandages from accidents involving her weapons, and just as adorable her real world counterpart.
  • Healing Hands: Because of her frequent injuries, she's learned enough medical jutsu to get by.
