Full Name: Naruto Uzumaki
Date of Birth: October 10
Age: 12–13 (Part I), 15–17 (Part II)
Height: 1.80 m
Powers and abilities: Because Naruto has Kurama sealed inside him, he is able to access a large source of chakra, which allows him to perform ninja techniques that someone his age could not perform.
However, it is only when he feels anger he that uses the chakra reserves of the bijū. Also, thanks to this same energy, he has the ability to invoke, through the “Kuchiyose no Jutsu”, some varieties of toads. In addition, as the story progresses, Naruto acquired the kyubi mode that would give him its characteristic yellow flaming appearance.
One of the greatest techniques that Naruto has learned is the “Rasengan”, a sphere of energy that concentrates a large amount of chakra.
Full Name: Sasuke Uchiha
Date of Birth: July 23
Age: 12–13 (Part I), 16–17 (Part II)
Height: 1.82 m
Powers and abilities: Sasuke is able to understand and practice ninja techniques with ease. In addition, being a member of his clan, he is the possessor of a line of succession technique known as the Sharingan, which provides him with a wide variety of advantages in battle.
After the death of Itachi, Sasuke develops the Mangekyō Sharingan, an evolved form of the Sharingan with which he can perform techniques of a higher level, such as the Amaterasu, which consists of generating powerful black flames that consume everything in their path.
He also uses the Tsukuyomi, a powerful illusory jutsu, as well as the Susano’o, a large skeletal creature that progressively becomes a flaming warrior that protects its summoner and fights for him. Before he escapes from the village, his sensei, Kakashi Hatake, teaches him Chidori, a technique that consists of a series of chakra rays accumulating in the hand.
Full Name: Sakura Harano
Date of Birth: March 28
Age: 12–13 (Part I), 15–17 (Part II)
Height: 1.65 cm
Powers and abilities: During the first part, Sakura’s abilities are almost nil, even though she possesses extensive chakra control, as demonstrated during the few battles she participates in. However, it is not until the second part that she learns to use this ability to her advantage. After training her with Tsunade for two and a half years, Sakura acquires two abilities.
The first is her ability to heal her wounds, giving him her position in her medical ninja team. Also, being a medical ninja, her team cannot let her face each other in battles. On the other hand, her second ability is her supernatural strength, which by focusing her chakra in her fists and releasing it, Sakura can reduce obstacles to rubble with great ease.
Full Name: Hinata Hyūga (Hinata Uzumaki)
Date of Birth: December 27
Age: 12–13 (Part I), 16 (Part II)
Height: 1.63 m
Powers and abilities: Hinata is part of the powerful Hyūga clan whose members have a hereditary dōjutsu called Byakūgan. By dint of courage and will, and with the help of her cousin Neji, Hinata eventually managed to progress, to master the clan’s most powerful secret techniques.
Hinata’s Byakūgan is often useful during missions with his team to warn enemies or dangers to come in their way; she can see with up to 10 km, and use it to pierce illusions (genjutsu). In the anime, she can also use it to see micro details very precisely, or as infrared vision. Besides her fighting skills, Hinata is shown to be quite intelligent.
In the anime, she is further shown capable of using the “Mystic Palm” healing technique, and she has successfully mastered two Godai Seishitsu Henka, fire and lightning.
Full Name: Kakashi Hatake
Date of Birth: September 15
Age: 26–27 (Part I), 29–31 (Part II)
Height: 1.81 m
Powers and abilities: The left Eye of Sharingan that Obito Uchiha gave him is one of the things that made him famous. Giving him the ability to imitate the movements and jutsu of others, thanks to the Sharingan, Kakashi has a great advantage in battle.
In addition, Kakashi developed the Mangekyō Sharingan after accidentally killing his teammate, Rin Nohara. With this form, evolved from the Sharingan, he can use a technique called “Kamui”, which sends any object or person to another dimension.
Although most of Kakashi’s abilities were acquired by the Sharingan, he has managed to develop two techniques himself. Raikiri is a compilation of chakra rays in the hand and an improved version of the Chidori.
Full Name: Orochimaru
Date of Birth: October 27
Age: 50–51 (Part I), 54 (Part II)
Powers and abilities: Orochimaru is an extremely powerful ninja. His powers, which can easily be considered Kage level, were so great that the Third Hokage feared that no one in the village would be able to defeat him or fight on an equal footing with him.
He was able to hold a fight with Naruto Uzumaki with Four Tails. Because of him fighting is rarely shown, he has only displayed a limited amount of techniques, although it stands to reason that in his efforts to learn all of the existing jutsu, his arsenal of skills has probably made him one of the greatest ninjas.
His fighting style is very fluid and he is almost invulnerable to most conventional techniques, even when impaled. And he has shown that even though he was paralyzed with the Reaper’s Deadly Seal Technique, he could still use ninjutsu without using hand seals.
Full Name: Tsunade Senju
Date of Birth: August 2
Age: 51 (Part I), 54–55 (Part II)
Height: 1.631 m
Powers and abilities: Explicitly the most effective technique used by her was Ninpo: Souzo-saisei. The technique consists of using a large amount of chakra accumulated for a long time in your forehead using it as medical potential, thus achieving not only restoring the cells, but also stimulating the proteins in your body to greatly increase the speed of cell division and reconstruction.
Another of the techniques used by her is the Kuchiyose no jutsu, with which she manages to summon Katsuyu to battle, a very obedient giant slug with the ability to divide into many mini clones, spit acid and transmit healing chakra released by Tsunade.
Finally, one of her most outstanding combat abilities is her outsized strength, capable of making gigantic cracks and house-sized holes in the ground, causing tremors, and blowing the enemy through the air with a punch.
Full Name: Rock Lee
Date of Birth: November 27
Age: 13–14 (Part I), 17 (Part II)
Height: 1.77 m
Powers and abilities: Lee is unable to use either magical or illusory arts but only martial arts. Like his teacher, he always wears ankle weights that he can remove only in extreme cases; when he gets rid of them, his already impressive speed increases in an incredible way, becoming so fast as to be almost invisible to the human eye.
Part of his fighting style involves opening the body’s eight defensive doors, or unlocking the natural limiters of the amount of chakra a ninja can draw from his body, resulting in superhuman strength and speed; out of a total of eight doors, Lee has shown he can open five.
He also knows two Lotus techniques He also has a natural predisposition for drunk style and also seems able to fight even when he is almost unconscious.
Full Name: Minato Namikaze
Date of Birth: January 25
Height: 1.792 m
Powers and abilities: According to Masashi Kishimoto, Minato was the strongest ninja in Konoha’s history. Like Tobirama Senju, Minato proved to be a high-level Sensor Type, being able to detect the presence of people within an area simply by placing his finger on the ground.
And he managed to take the technique of this Flying Thunder God Jutsu to a new level being recognized by it that he had better speed and that he was fast-acting.
Although Minato has never been shown to possess high-powered jutsu or techniques, it is appreciated that his enormous power was due to his ability to exploit the abilities he possessed, such as focusing on his speed to surprise the enemy, or analyzing things quickly and efficiently, so he knew how and when to attack, he is the only ninja who has shown such a fighting style.
Also in the movies, he demonstrates the ability to erase a person’s memories with the Memory Eraser Seal, as well as being an expert in Fuinjutsu being taught the techniques of the Uzumaki Clan by Kushina.
Full Name: Jiraiya
Date of Birth: November 11
Age: 50–51 (Part I), 54 (Part II)
Height: 1.912 m
Powers and abilities: Jiraiya is one of the three legendary ninjas or sanni. When Jiraiya was little he was very clumsy (almost the same as Naruto at that time), he always fell into the same traps that for they set him, saying the Third Hokage that he was incredible for doing that.
He developed a transparency technique to be able to spy on women without being discovered. But with the passage of time, Jiraiya became a great ninja, being so good, that when the third Hokage died, the members of the council of elders of the village asked him to be the successor of the Third Hokage, but he rejected it.
He is considered to be an S-class ninja and one of the best and most powerful shinobi. He is a genius summoning toads. In the battle against the six bodies of Pain, Jiraiya uses the senjutsu, techniques of the hermit, where, he also used the Cutting Barrier, which destroyed a body of Pain when crossing it, thus defeating the one he summoned.
Full Name: Gaara
Date of Birth: January 19
Age: 12–13 (Part I), 15–17 (Part II)
Height: 1.725 m
Powers and abilities: Because he has the Shukaku inside him, Gaara can control the sand. To attack his opponents, Gaara uses the sand to bury them and then compresses it to crush them in the process. While Gaara is attacked, a sand shield activates automatically, thus blocking attacks and preventing anything from damaging him.
Also, Gaara covers his skin with a layer of sand, as a preventive defense measure in case the sand shield were to be pierced. At the end of the first part, Gaara demonstrates the ability to use sand to transport himself, allowing him to fly. Like other jinchūriki, Gaara can manifest certain traits of the beast that is encased in him.
While covered in sand, Gaara can take on the appearance of the Shukaku but in miniature, thereby increasing his resistance and speed.
Full Name: Neji Hyūga
Date of Birth: July 3
Age: 13–14 (Part I), 17–18 (Part II)
Height: 1.721 m
Powers and abilities: Neji possesses the Byakugan, the innate ability of his clan, which gives him an almost 360-degree view, and a special fighting style called “Juken”, which allows him to damage the circulatory system of the chakra and internal organs.
At a young age, Neji already knew how to use the Byakugan, and he knew all the secret techniques of the main branch (such as the celestial rotation and the 64 palms technique). His Byakugan is more developed compared to that of the other members of his clan: he has, in fact, developed the ability to see perfectly the opponent’s vanishing points and in adolescence, he has a sight of 50 meters at 358º and can zoom up to 1 km in a straight line.
Despite his great abilities, Neji has a weak point which is the blind spot of the remaining 2 ° on his back. In fact, when that happens, Neji finds himself in serious trouble. Although in the second part he manages to learn the “Hakke Kushō” technique to compensate for the weakness.
Full Name: Madara Uchiha
Date of Birth: December 24
Height: 1.79 m
Powers and abilities: Madara has been referred to by various characters as one of the most gifted ninjas in history, and it has been noted that he was born with a particularly powerful chakra, which he claims is the reason for his “stubborn refusal to die.”
Even the Kyubi mentioned that Madara’s chakra is even more sinister than theirs. Madara has proven capable of defeating several powerful opponents. Onoki, the Third Tsuchikage, describes Madara’s visual abilities as something that can make even the best ninja speak, while Gaara said that he had the power of a God.
Tsunade, on his part, doubts that Tobi is actually Madara Uchiha and that he is only using his name because the name ‘Madara Uchiha’ is synonymous with power while Obito carried out his plans.
Full Name: Hanzō
Date of Birth: February 12
Height: 1.77 m
Powers and abilities: Hanzō’s abilities and techniques are not shown throughout the franchise, but it is interpreted throughout it that he is a character with great power and abilities, according to the legendary shinobi fame he has. The so-called three Sannin (Jiraiya, Orochimaru, and Tsunade) were no match for him, barely surviving.
The character’s favorite weapon was a large kusarigama (a weapon from Japan). He used the weapon both offensively and defensively, or even to immobilize opponents. The main characteristic of the character is a bag of poison that he carries housed inside his body. Hanzō used it to poison his enemies or his own kusarigama.
However, this was also a double-edged sword for Hanzō, because if the bag were to break, the poison would paralyze Hanzō, although it would not be lethal to him. On the other hand, the poison was highly lethal to anyone, causing incredible pain and paralyzing the body.
Full Name: Kabuto Yakushi
Date of Birth: February 29
Age: 19–20 (Part I), 23–24 (Part II)
Height: 1.77 m
Powers and abilities: The first notions shown of his character in the play reflect a low-level ninja with very basic knowledge, however, this was a cover under which to act as Orochimaru’s spy. His main instrument in battle is usually his intelligence. Kabuto is extremely insightful and calculating, always improvising and adapting in combat.
In battle he never leaves anything to chance and is able to analyze his opponents in just moments, knowing how to anticipate his movements in almost any circumstance. His main attribute is his abilities as a doctor, which is why Orochimaru wanted to make him his disciple.
