  Summary  

うずまき ナルト is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto created by Masashi Kishimoto. The main protagonist and titular character of the series, he is a ninja affiliated with the fictional village of Konohagakure. The villagers ostracize Naruto because the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, a malevolent creature that attacked Konohagakure, is sealed within his body. As a result, Naruto has ambitions of becoming the village's leader, the Hokage, in order to gain recognition among his peers. He maintains a cheerful and boisterous personality, allowing him to befriend several other Konohagakure ninja throughout the series, as well as ninja from other villages. Naruto appears in all of the series' films, as well as other media related to the franchise, including video games and original video animations.

When creating Naruto, Kishimoto wished to keep the character "simple and stupid", while giving him many attributes of an ideal hero. However, Kishimoto also added a harsh past to give him a dark side. Naruto's initial design has been changed several times by Kishimoto, providing the character with different clothes to make him more appealing to Western audiences, and to make him easier to illustrate. This has also occurred within the start of Part II, the storyline's part which starts two-and-a-half years after the conclusion of the original series Part I. The character was voiced by Junko Takeuchi in the animated series and Maile Flanagan in the English adaptations.

Several anime and manga publications have expressed acclaim and criticism of Naruto's character. Some view him as a stereotypical manga and anime protagonist comparable to those in many other shōnen manga, while others have praised his personality as well as his development in the series. Nevertheless, Naruto has remained highly popular with the Naruto fan-base, placing high in several popularity polls. Merchandise based on Naruto has also been released, including figurines and plush dolls.

  Biography  

Naruto is depicted as young teenager with blonde spiky hair. He frequently wears an orange jumpsuit and, following his graduation, a headband which represents his position as a ninja from Konohagakure. In Part II of the manga which features an older Naruto, he wears a new outfit as a result of his physical growth. The Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed within Naruto influences his body, causing him to resemble the Fox over the course of his battles. While initially Naruto only shows small changes such as sharp teeth and claws, he later develops a red tail made of the Fox's vital energy, the chakra. The red chakra starts by surrounding his body; once four tails are manifested, Naruto's blood starts merging with the chakra, coloring his entire body red. As the sixth tail appears, Naruto appears to wear the Fox's skeleton. Once Naruto takes control of the Fox's chakra, he is able to maintain his regular form while using it. As a ninja, Naruto carries a large number of weapons. However, he mostly relies on his ninja techniques while fighting, specializing in making clones of himself.

Introduced in the series as a childish joker, Naruto wants people's attention as a result of the way villagers have set him apart. In order to gain respect, he resolves to become Konohagakure's Hokage and surpass all the previous leaders no matter the difficulties. While becoming a ninja, Naruto forms friendships he lacked during his previous years, linking some of them to family relations. While Naruto sometimes finds himself unable to accomplish the tasks he proposes to do, many characters feel that Naruto will someday be an excellent Hokage, due to his positive impact on their lives.
