16 Naruto Uzumaki

Naruto Uzumaki is the anime and manga’s main character. An orphan who was shunned by the Hidden Leaf Village during the early parts of his life, Naruto sought to become its Hokage to prove himself to everyone.

Naruto goes through a lot of growth throughout the series, maturing as both a fighter and a person. In part one of the show, he is between 12 and 13 years old, while in part two, he goes from 15 to 17 years old.

15 Sasuke Uchiha

Naruto Sasuke

Similar to Naruto, Sasuke is between 12 and 13 years old in the first part of the show, while he goes from 16 to 17 years old in Naruto: Shippuden. Sasuke is also a bit taller than the title character.

Sasuke’s existence is defined by the actions of his brother, Itachi, and the young shinobi is far more conflicted than any of the other members of Team 7. Sasuke arguably goes through the most changes in Naruto, and while he commits some atrocities, he can also play the part of the hero.

14 Sakura Haruno

Sakura in Naruto

Like the rest of Team 7, Sakura is between 12 and 13 years old in part one and goes from 15 to 17 years old during part two.

RELATED: Naruto: Every Team Sakura Has Been Part Of

Sakura tends to be overshadowed by Naruto and Sasuke, both of whom are shinobi prodigies; consequently, the pink-haired character often takes a backseat to her teammates. However, Sakura eventually finds her calling as a medical-nin, developing into one of the best that Hidden Leaf Village has ever seen.

13 Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi Hatake in Naruto

Throughout the first part of the show, Kakashi is between 26 and 27 years old, while he goes from 29 to 31 years old in the second anime series.

In Naruto, Kakashi is tasked with leading and training Team 7, and there is no other shinobi better suited for the job. Although his laissez-faire demeanor might suggest he is something of an uninterested pushover, Kakashi is actually an extremely talented ninja who knows when to take things seriously.

12 Itachi Uchiha

Naruto Itachi

For the duration of part one, Itachi is between 17 and 18 years old, while in part two, he is 21. Although he takes a backseat for large chunks of the story, Itachi casts a long shadow that constantly looms over Sasuke.

Itachi’s legacy is that he murdered the Uchiha clan, leaving only Sasuke alive. This fuels the latter’s existence, but the situation eventually reveals itself to be far more nuanced than just one shinobi exposing himself to be a monster.

11 Hinata Hyuga

Hinata in Naruto

Hinata Hyuga was born on December 27th. She is the same age as the protagonist, between 12 and 13 years old during the first part of the show and Hinata is 16 years old in the second part.

Hinata and Naruto bond over their loneliness; although not as isolated as the latter, the former grew up being told that she would not amount to anything. Encouraged by Naruto, Hinata pushed herself to prove everyone wrong, and she developed a crush on her inspiration.

10 Gaara

Naruto Gaara

Gaara’s birthday is January 19th. In part one of the show, he is between 12 and 13 years old. In part two, Gaara ages from 15 to 17 years old.

RELATED: Naruto: Every Team Rock Lee Has Been Part Of

Gaara and Naruto share quite a bit in common, as both were feared by the residents of their villages. Their situations prompted opposite reactions; while Naruto craved companionship, Gaara grew to loathe the world and sought to eradicate everyone he could. Gaara’s life changes for the better once he meets Naruto.

9 Rock Lee

Naruto Rock Lee

Growing up alongside Team 8, Rock Lee is between 13 and 14 years old in Naruto. In Shippuden, he’s 17. One of the most likable characters in the series, Lee is endearingly optimistic and relentlessly driven to prove to everyone that he can overcome any shortcomings.

Incapable of mastering ninjutsu, Lee turned to physical martial arts instead, with Might Guy serving as his sensei. Even though he had a lower ceiling than the likes of Naruto and Sasuke, Lee made sure to become the strongest version of himself he could be.

8 Shikamaru Nara

Shikamaru Nara as a chuunin in the Naruto anime

Shikamaru is one of the most intelligent characters in the show, with his laziness being a negative trait that he actually gets over following many notable moments in the series where he captured the limelight. He’s one of the most likable characters in Naruto, with his intelligence allowing him to serve as the Hokage’s adviser after Naruto achieved his lifelong dream.

A particularly strong moment for his character came after Asuma’s death. He realized that he couldn’t take things lightly anymore, using his brains to corner the man who killed his sensei and giving him a brutal burial where Hidan would remain trapped forever. His immortality would serve to only extend this torture.

7 Ino Yamanaka

Ino Yamanaka in Naruto

Ino seemed like a pretty unlikable character early on, with her schtick of berating and fighting Sakura becoming old quite fast. However, it’s after her background with her rival is explored that fans get to see another side of her character.

It helps that her participation in the Ino-Shika-Cho trio was also pretty engrossing in its own right. Over time, she got over her hatred of Sakura, and the two rekindled a friendship that was stronger than ever before.

6 Neji Hyuga

Neji Hyuga in Naruto

Neji is one of the best characters in Naruto, with his battle against the protagonist in the Chunin Exams being a highlight of the arc. This clash of ideals resulted in Neji finally accepting that destiny wasn’t pre-determined — a message that was undermined when it was revealed that both Sasuke and Naruto were reincarnations of Asura and Indra respectively.

RELATED: Jutsu That Can Destroy Naruto In Battle

It was a shame to see him die in Naruto after barely playing a major role post the time skip. It felt like a waste of a character who was pretty strong and memorable in the first half of the series, only to be shelved and killed in the War arc to make for an emotional moment.

5 Jiraiya

Naruto Jiraiya

Jiraiya was born on November 11th. For part one of the show, he is between 50 and 51 years old. Come part two, he’s 54. Often serving as comedy relief, Jiraiya might seem like an idiot on the surface, but he is one of the strongest shinobi in Konoha’s history.

Jiraiya’s eccentric personality sets him apart from the rest of Naruto‘s main characters; he is unapologetically silly, over-the-top, and inappropriate. However, if something threatens the Hidden Leaf Village, he would do anything to protect it.

4 Orochimaru

Naruto Orochimaru

Orochimaru, Naruto’s main antagonist, was born on October 27th. Like Jiraiya, he is between 50 and 51 years old in part one and 54 in part two.

A contender for Naruto‘s greatest villain, Orochimaru spends his time trying to overcome mortality, which usually entails gruesome experiments. The character’s backstory sheds some light on his initial driving force since he struggled to process the emotions he felt following a personal loss, but he eventually morphed into a twisted and dangerous figure.

3 Obito Uchiha

Obito Uchiha from Naruto Shippuden

Obito Uchiha, born on February 10, was one of Kakashi’s closest friends who apparently lost his life before coming back as a central villain over the course of Naruto: Shippuden. His reveal as an antagonist is pretty great, even though his motivations do have glaring holes in them.

RELATED: Naruto: All The Filler Episodes In The Anime

During the Kakashi Gaiden, Obito is 13 years old before meeting what seems to be a grisly end. However, in Naruto: Shippuden, Tobi reveals his true identity as a 31-year-old Obito Uchiha. He was 5’1″ in the Kakashi Gaiden, with his height varying between transformations in Shippuden.

2 Madara Uchiha

Naruto Madara Uchiha reanimated during the Fourth Great Ninja War

Madara Uchiha is a complex villain who has been a pain in the side of the Leaf Village due to his ravenous need for power and conflict. He was apparently put to rest by Hashirama after a massive conflict, but it seems that even death wasn’t enough to halt Madara’s ambition.

His age hasn’t been confirmed by official sources, although rumors say that he was around 80 years old at the time of his demise. His birthday is a day before Christmas, and his height is almost 180 centimeters.

1 Hashirama Senju

Hashirama Senju using Sage Mode

The creator of Wood Style is one of the most powerful shinobi in existence. His powers and healing aptitude are simply in a class of their own, making Hashirama an iconic character in the universe of Naruto.

His birthday is on October 23, and his height is slightly over 6 feet. His real age is unknown, although many people assume that he’s just a few years older than Madara.
