Personality and Biography - Naruto Uzumaki is an energetically stubborn kid known as a notorious trouble-maker in his hometown of Konoha. He likes to skip classes at the ninja academy, and often plays pranks on everyone. His most notable prank was when he vandalized the rock faces of the Legendary Hokages with paint. For the most part, Naruto is a victim of cruel fate. Both of his parents have died before he even knew them, and to make things worse, the feared nine tailed fox that once threatened their village was sealed inside of him by the fourth Hokage when he was just a baby. This stigma in mind, people from his town avoided him like a person with incurable disease. He grew up alone with no friends, and no parents. The root of his trouble-making efforts is a struggle to gain any kind of attention. It is his way of reaching out. However, he has a desirable trait whereas he doesn't cry in a corner feeling sorry for himself, but instead he does something about it regardless of what other people say and think. This mindset is his trademark personality in the anime series as he strives for his dream to be the next Hokage being known as the hyperactive knucklehead who never gives up. The turning point in his life is during the Genin exams as he groups up with Sakura Haruno and Sasuke Uchiha to form team 7, taught and supervised by a Jounin ninja named Kakashi. Naruto has a crush on Sakura even though she finds him annoying, and Sasuke, whom he claims he hates, is Sakura's crush. As they went on missions, Naruto displays a loud, reckless, and emotionally driven personality. He usually does the the most illogical tactics ever such as going for a stronger enemy head on, unlike Sasuke, his acclaimed rival, who would assess the situation with a more logical approach and prefer maintaining stealth until the opponent drops his/her guard. Even though this characteristic of Naruto is most often considered as stupidly inferior behavior especially during missions, it often serves him well during crucial moments of the story where he manages to overcome his enemies with raw determination and will-power.

Battle Stats - During the initial part of the story, Naruto has a unique, and incredibly effective transformation jutsu called "Sexy no Jutsu," transforming from this snotty little brat into a naked blond vixen named Naruko. He uses this technique on certain occasion with amazing results. His specialty is "Kage Bunshin no Jutsu" (Shadow Clones), a secret technique learned from a forbidden secret scroll he was tricked into stealing by a Mizuki, a spy from another village. Unlike the traditional "Bunshin" (clone illusion), this shadow clone jutsu lets him summon mutltiple clones with actual physical bodies. Its disadvantage, however, is that it requires a huge amount of chakra, which most ninjas, even those with higher ranks, could not handle. Naruto is able summon thousands of these clones using the immense red chakra the nine tailed fox lends him. The appearnace of this red chakra is mostly provoked by intense anger followed by a change in Naruto's voice , eyes and disposition; very similar to a demonic fox. This chakra also gives him gives him incredible speed and power accompanied by hyper-regeneration of wounds. Unfortunately, as the intensity of the red chakra increases, Naruto's behavior becomes as wild and savage as the nine-tailed fox's. He also learns a summoning jutsu called "Kuchiyose no Justsu" taught to him by Jiraiya, one of the three legendary Sanines. The jutsu requiring a contract, a seal, and the user's blood pact, enables the user to summon either snakes, toads, slugs, dogs, or birds etc. to the battlefield depending on what animal he/she initially chose in the contract. In Naruto's case, he signed under an alliance with the toads. Or should I say tadpoles, since the majority of his training with Jiraiya is spent with results ranging from tadpoles to tadpoles with legs. With a little encouragement from Jiraiya, who throws him into a deep pit (deep enough to kill Naruto), Naruto finally unleashes his red chakra summoning the biggest, strongest, and feistiest toad of them all, Gamabunta. Jiraiya teaches him another powerful technique called the Rasengan. It was originally invented by the fourth Hokage who took 4 years to master it. Naruto masters it in approximately 2 to 3 months, but with the help of Kage Bunshin Clones.
