Uzumaki Naruto is the titular character of Kishimoto Masashi's anime and manga series Naruto. He is 12 years old in the first arc of the series and 15 in the second arc.

Naruto is an upbeat youth who stands true to his word, and upholding his "way of the ninja", being honest and courageous. He has blonde spikey hair and stands 147.5 cm tall and wears an orange jumpsuit, which is later orange and black in the second arc.

He is introduced in tankobon 1, chapter 1.




After Birth Naruto's father is Minato Namikaze (the fourth Hokage) and his mother is Kushina Uzumaki, a villager from the Whirlpool Country. According to Jiraiya, Kushina was talkative and a tomboyish girl. According to Tsunade, much of Naruto's personality (and his style of ninjutsu) was inherited from her. Naruto has been said to look strikingly like his father. Like Naruto, Minato had bright blue-eyes and spiky blond hair with the addition of chin-length strands framing both sides of his face.

Soon after Naruto was born, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked Konoha. Minato rushed to the village's help, where he and Gamabunta faced off against the Nine-Tails, but the beast's power could not be matched. Minato decided to defeat the demon and give Konoha the means to combat Madara if he should ever attack the village again. He used the Dead Demon Consuming Seal to seal the Nine-Tails into Naruto's body, hoping that his son would someday be able to use its power. When Minato sealed the Nine-Tails within Naruto, he had split its chakra in two, the Yin and Yang. Minato sealed the Yang half within Naruto with the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style, and sealed the Yin half with the Dead Demon Consuming Seal, thus making it inaccessible to Naruto. The act cost Minato his life, and he died as the village's greatest hero.

Childhood With the Fourth Hokage dead and no other Hokage chosen, the Third Hokage reassumed the role of Hokage. One of the first things he did with his title was make a law that no one was to talk about Naruto as the container for the demon. He later says that it was because the fourth wanted the village to see Naruto as a hero. Instead the parents of Naruto's generation grew to hate him. They blamed him for all the death and destruction caused by the Kyuubi and they warned their children to stay away from him. Desperate for attention, Naruto became a troublemaker. He is later seen in a flashback as one of the "failures", sneaking out of class with Shikamaru, Choji, and Kiba.
