Drinking game for Naruto:


The following set of rules have been created for play with alcoholic beverages in mind, but can be just as extensively enjoyed with non-alcoholic replacements. Although there are no specific guidelines when it comes to the amount of what constitutes a "drink", "sip", etc., participants are encouraged to ascertain (and discuss amongst one another if more than one person is present) personal limits beforehand.


However, if you find that you would like an established guideline: For this drinking game, a sip is roughly half a mouthful of your drink. For those that play using shots, they also count as one sip.

Because of the vast differences between Parts I and II, and even between the story arcs themselves, some rules may become less common after a certain point in your game. For this purpose, there are not only more rules, but there are a few "extreme rules" to help those that want "a challenge".

Take one sip every time (unless otherwise mentioned)...

  • Naruto steps on a pile of crap.
  • Naruto says "Believe it!!!"
  • Naruto goes to Ichiraku Ramen.
  • Sakura hits Naruto.
  • Inner Sakura appears.
  • Anybody cries.
    • Two if it's Sakura.
    • Three if it's Lee or Guy.
  • Ino and Sakura have a disagreement.
  • Somebody fangirls over Sasuke.
  • Killer Bee raps.
  • Any glaringly bad censorships done to the artwork in the VIZ manga translation. Think this is a dry challenge? Read volumes 36 and 37.

      • Take another two if he actually DOES kill someone.
      • Down your drink if it shows the other character's detailed reactions to any of these happening (eg. when Naruto and Shikamaru were frozen in shock and horror at the Genin tournament).

  • Filler Rule: Take one drink for every ten episodes of filler you encounter.
    • Suicidal Rule: Watch all the filler in one setting while abiding by the Filler Rule. Puke on a photo of the main studio that animates Naruto afterward. Yeah... it's gonna suck.

    • Suicidal Rule: Every time he says Rin's name, have a sip.
    • Extremely Suicidal Rule: Every time he mentions despair.

    • Take another if they become antagonists.
    • And another if they scowl all the time.
    • Yet another if the person is an orphan- two if a vengeful orphan. Three if they're about Naruto's age.
    • One if Naruto meets them and they butt heads.
    • Another if they bitch about how everything is hopeless and you should just give up.
    • One if they end up crying Broken Tears because they're really just a sweet child beneath layers of angst.
    • But wait! There's MORE! One if a villain killed their parent/parents as part of a plan to gain power.
    • Another if the villain is a snobby, arrogant yutz with a "holier than thou" smirk as their most common expression.
    • Yet another if they have a hammy Evil Laugh when they reveal they killed the orphan's parents.
    • Then another if they get DBR'd: Death by Rasengan.
    • Another if this happened in a Naruto movie.
    • One more if Naruto won the victimized person over by being his usual simpleton self and converts them into a friend.
    • Another if it was a female, and they fell in love with him, but Naruto is too dense to notice and it becomes a tease for the audience.
      • And finally, if you ticked every single bullet point on that list while watching a Naruto story, chug an entire beer stein.
  • Drink yourself stupid if Ten-Ten gets any, ANY Character Development outside a filler. Lampposts often get more screen time than her.

  • Take a shot whenever a previous event in the story is revealed to have been orchestrated by a major villain, regardless of how improbable it seems that they could have controlled the outcome of such an event.
    • Two if it is a case of Man Behind the Man. Three if they pull a betrayal on the goaltending Big Bad to take their place as an even more dangerous villain.
  • Take a shot every time Karin blushes.
    • Another when she thinks about Sasuke or obsesses over him.
    • Another if it's really, really perverted. Two if it manages to creep out anybody else. Three if it's Suigetsu.
  • Finish your drink every time Jugo goes berserk.
  • Take a drink whenever Suigetsu drinks his water cup. It's only fair you drink along with him.
  • Take a shot any time Omoi has a paranoid moment. Two if Karui gets annoyed and yells at him for it.

      • Three if Ao is the recipient.
  • Take a shot for everytime a Uchiha is given a Freudian Excuse.
  • Take a shot if the anime/manga tries to fool you into thinking someone suffered a fatal blow.
    • Take two if it's done through a character using genjutsu.
    • Or if it's done through cheap camera angles.
    • Chug down a bottle if it's used as a cliffhanger.
