Naruto Brief Biography

Naruto Biography:The hero of the story, Uzumaki Naruto!! He is the Hidden Leaf's Number One Loudest Ninja, which is a title he more than lives up to. He breaks the rules, he has to be the centre of attention, his intelligence sinks below every other ninja, he is untalented in comparison with his fellow Academy students, he is outspoken and egotistical but most importantly: He has a Ninja spirit that never gives up! Naruto might be the bottom of his classes and might not be a genius of Ninjutsu but he is honest in everything he does, which is a quality every ninja should have. Being our hero, he has a unique ability that singles him out from any other character and, for once, it's not due to an Advanced Bloodline. Sealed within Naruto is a Nine-Tailed Demon Fox that attacked and almost destroyed the Hidden Leaf Village. This immeasurable power was preserved inside of a newborn babies body so that it couldn't return to demolish the Village again. That baby was Naruto. So, being the person to have sacrificed his body and future to save the village, you'd expect Naruto to be a hero and martyr in the eyes of the villagers. This, however, couldn't be farther from the truth.
As a child, Naruto was neglected and was only acknowledged as a monster and a demon boy who shouldn't be alive, let alone a Shinobi. He grew up without any parents, without the love of another person. In fact, Naruto has been entirely alone his entire life. So, it's no wonder he is always reaching out for people's attention. This explains why he played the clown of the class in the Ninja academy. He always wanted someone to be looking at him, to acknowledge he existed, even at the expense of his reputation and education. In the short term it worked, all the children laughed at him and exclaimed what a funny guy he was, but it still didn't make him feel wanted by anyone. The children's parents would still grimace in his direction and talk about him behind his back, which ultimately put him back where he started. From his dejection, Naruto grew up to have a dream that he would devote his life to, no matter what happened. That dream was to be the Hidden Leaf Villages Hokage and have everyone acknowledge Naruto as the Villages best and strongest Ninja. A very difficult dream to accomplish, especially when he had nobody to support his ambition or to help him believe he could be anything he wanted. Until, he found that in his sensei, Iruka.
Iruka had a very similar childhood to Naruto and he understands the shadow of pain Naruto lives under. Iruka treated Naruto to ramen, he paid extra attention to Naruto outside of the academy, and, to ensure sure he would grow up into someone respectable, he disciplined Naruto sternly in the ninja academy. In Iruka, Naruto found a precious person who he would fight for. That was the type of person Naruto had never had before. Still, as time passed, Naruto found two more people who he would fight beside and die with. His rival, Uchiha Sasuke and his love interest, Haruno Sakura. These are the two people who mean the most to Naruto from very different reasons.
Sakura is a girl who Naruto has a soft spot for. It's not clear why he really likes her, but it's probably because she is cute and smartest rookie of Naruto's group. He's never actually admitted he loves her either, instead he does a much better job of annoying her and making him seem even more worthless by acting like an idiot that he's so used to doing. The other person who Naruto is connected with is Uchiha Sasuke, the last member of the Uchiha clan and a genius rookie who is the strongest ninja in the academy. Naruto hates Sasuke more than anyone he's ever met. He is a guy who always acts cool and gets the attention of everyone and the majority the girls. This includes Sakura, who is probably the biggest Sasuke fan in the academy. All of these things, and the fact Sasuke doesn't even need to try to succeed as an excellent ninja, annoy Naruto. So, Naruto makes a point of working hard so that Sasuke doesn't continue to steal the limelight and also wants Sasuke's recognition that Naruto is his equal. Through the story, the relationship between these three changes a great deal, but this is how things stand between them at the beginning.
So, with the power of the Nine-Tails at his aid, Naruto has a colossal amount of chakra that accompanies his seemingly endless stamina perfectly. On the whole, Naruto is well established for any type of Ninja skill and out of all the characters, he seems to have the largest inventory. In this list, there is the Kinjutsu, Kage Bushin no Jutsu. This is similar to Bushin no Jutsu, but instead of creating the illusion of multiplication, it actually creates actual clones of Naruto that can fight and hold things. This is Naruto's favourite technique! He also has the infamous Sexy no Jutsu. This crazy technique involves using the Henge no Jutsu to turn into a hot chick and give the (male) adults a geyser or a nosebleed, knocking them out instantly. This technique is a little ridiculous, but that's Naruto for you!
Sakura Biography:Sakura is what could be called the cute intellectual part of Team 7 that consists of Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Sasuke, and herself. This ninja knows every rule and every technical detail that would be required of a ninja to know. First in her class when it comes to knowledge, Sakura is a totally different person when she's on the battlefield at the beginning of the series. During the battle she could hardly hold back her feelings and emotions and is often seen panicking or bursting into tears when the battle is not turning out in her teams favor, therefore giving her the reputation of being somewhat unreliable in her teachers eyes. But, even though she sometimes lacks the bravery to act as a real ninja during battle, Sakura progressively takes a more and more active role in her team as time passes by.
Loving Sasuke with all of her heart and finding Naruto to be an annoying brat she spends her free time trying to seduce Sasuke and taking care of her appearance while completely ignoring Naruto and ofen picking a fight with her "friend" and rival for the love of Sasuke, Yamanaka Ino. This only holds true until Sakura begins to understand her other comrade, realizing that he is indeed very special and abandoning the idea that he is a miserable failure, like most of the others think until the end of the Chuunin exams. She admits that she was wrong and has been acting selfishly as if she was always right. Aside from that Sakura is always helping out her teammates, especially Naruto, to understand some of the specific ninja maneuvers that only a veteran could understand, and by doing so helping her team devise a strategy to win against the enemy. She also incarnated the teams good conscience and often acts as a warning bell, or the person who puts her team back on the right track (and Naruto is often the victim of such "reminders"). Sakura is otherwise a very gentle person that never misses an opportunity to help others and find a good thing to do or say to those who aren't as fortunate.
Through the series we learn that Sakura was not always as she is now. When she was younger she was generally rejected by the other girls, for no reason other than her being ashamed of her rather large forehead. When the other kids at the ninja academy saw that, they didn't miss an opportunity to make fun of it! Sakura would spend her days all along until one day a popular girl, Ino, saw her sitting alone on the bench crying and began talking to her. From then on, Ino gave Sakura a whole new attitude and boosted her self confidence as she began to make some more friends, and even fall in love. Until then Ino was always helping her when she got insulted or bulled around by other girls, acting as a mentor giving her advice on how to act and how to be a better student and person, physically and mentally. This lasted until Sakura fell in love with the boy that every other girl at the academy had their eye on: Uchiha Sasuke. From there her relationship with Ino became cold and formal, neither of the two ex-best friends would openly declare war upon the other, which resulted in a few quarrels, some serious and some absolutely ridiculous! Recently though Sakura's relationship with Ino has become less tense and more friendly, but we have yet to see what happened to them during a three year time jump.
Sakura's fighting style was very basic before the three year jump in the series, but that does not mean it was bad as she excelled at the "basic stuff". Sakura, as Hatake Kakashi states, is the best of the original genins at controlling her chakra. Basically, she's as good at that as a jounin would be: nearly perfect. She uses this near perfection over her chakra to execute all the basic ninjutsu that a ninja knows without a single flaw. These, mixed with some basic taijutsu makes Sakura tricky and sometimes very tough to deal with. It also seems that she is good at manipulating shuriken and kunai, making her even more dangerous at a long range. With all of these characteristics she is a ninja that should be taken seriously, unless you want to get beaten to a pulp! Being trained under Tsunade, Sakura acquired unbelievable physical strength, being able to easily split a large piece of land in two by just punching the soil. Adding to that, she is now a skilled medical ninja. Under the training of this new sensei there is no doubt that Sakura now possesses some significant knowledge of healing techniques, and some great talent that we have not seen all of... yet.
