Uzumaki Naruto (in English anime, Naruto Uzumaki) is the main character in the Naruto manga and anime series. He is a student of Jiraiya and later of Hatake Kakashi.
History of
Little is known about the birth or parentage of Naruto and it is highly likely that he has no living relatives at all. What is known, however, is that about the time his mother was about to give birth to him, his village was invaded by the Nine-tails Demon Fox or Kyūbi no Yōko, Konohagakure (Hidden Leaf) and the Yondaime Hokage (Fourth Hokage) who attempted to seal the demon away with a forbidden technique inside him, losing his life in the process. Yondaime 's wish was to make the residents of the village regarding Naruto as a hero.

Things have definitely not turned out this way for him, unfortunately. The village people wanted someone to blame them and turn their bitterness and disappointment into them, and he was the ideal choice. Without any exceptions, the village's adults knew him and regarded him as nothing more than the evil fox that invaded the village; he grew up alone and lonely as a result. In the manga, it is implied that he went through very difficult emotional times and often shed a lot of tears, but he kept reproaching himself for doing so and saying nothing would be achieved by crying to himself.     
Eventually, he developed into the loudmouth, hyperactive prankster he was at the beginning of the manga, though because the Third Hokage (Sandaime) observed (and even Naruto himself, during a moment of rare enlightenment, once admitted this), it's only an act to hide up for his deep insecurity during a desperate plight for recognition.

By chance or fate, Umino Iruka, who had felt much of equivalent desperation as Naruto in his younger years, was Naruto's teacher, and he was the primary person to acknowledge Naruto as a person's being and ninja, and not even as a stupid screwup or the Nine-Tails. Naruto, at one point, says that when he's with Iruka, he often wonders whether that's what being with a father is like.

Personality and characteristics
Naruto is extremely determined and has very strong values that he never once fails to act by, even in hopeless situations. His dream is to become Hokage because it is that the epitome of his ambitions to possess the village acknowledge him and live for the sake of protecting his important people.

Naruto features a knack for uplifting people to understand their potentials and resolve to figure harder or change their ways for the better; his determination and resolve often earn him sympathy from other characters. One early example of this is often Konohamaru, the grandson of the third Hokage, who was inspired by Naruto to prevent trying to seek out shortcuts to becoming Hokage, as there are not any shortcuts and therefore the only way is paved with many diligence. Another is Inari, whom Naruto helped by making him see that anyone can make a difference and by confronting him about his refusal to return to terms together with his painful past (as Naruto's past was similarly tragic). Both of them have gotten very attached to Naruto and have taken to calling him Onii-chan (big brother).

Though he's naturally impetuous, hyperactive and tends to rush into combat stupidly, Naruto is capable of devising some quite clever plans by creative usage of his Jutsu. He has quite once upstaged what seemed like a superior opponent by exploiting the element of surprise an unconventional usage of a way entails; Kakashi even dubs him the "number one ninja in surprising people". Another main drive behind his otherwise average Taijutsu and Ninjutsu abilities is that the huge power and chakra reserves of the Kyūbi. Kyūbi is by no stretch of the imagination a very pleasant character, but nevertheless does everything in his power to assist Naruto - lending chakra as requested, healing Naruto together with his extreme healing ability then forth - if just for the very fact that Naruto's death would apparently mean the Kyūbi's death also.

There are downsides to the large chakra load that's Kyūbi; like most of the most important weapons, it cannot be lifted, including wielded, with ease. Naruto may be a relatively small container that can't quite handle the entire Kyūbi's chakra, which could account for Naruto's inability to regulate and focus chakra consistently for jutsu during his days at the academy. Even later, when Naruto learns to raised control of his chakra, any technique counting on Kyūbi's chakra to figure properly runs an opportunity of failing, because it takes great conviction or control on Naruto's part to draw Kyūbi's chakra effectively. However, Naruto's Chakra and Kyūbi's chakra are slowly fusing and are expected to eventually become one, which is sure to drastically change this status-quo.

Ninja academy
Up to his academy graduation, Naruto has precious little of the acknowledgment and empathy he seeks. His sensei, Umino Iruka, and to a lesser extent the Third Hokage, are the sole positive influence on him therein respect (though Hyūga Hinata thinks very highly of him also she never actually gathers the courage to deal with him). He neglects his academy studies such a lot that he repeatedly fails to graduate (though the Bunshin no Jutsu, the one he's worst at, being the ultimate test per annum doesn't help much). that's until he's manipulated to steal the scroll of seals (a scroll belonging to the village containing forbidden techniques) by Mizuki. During the short conflict between Mizuki and Iruka, Naruto acquires his signature technique, Kage Bunshin no Jutsu, by learning it from the scroll. When he demonstrates the usage of this system, Iruka passes him and congratulates him on graduating.

While labeled as dumb at the academy, Naruto shows surprising talent in unexpected areas and sometimes comes up with inventive solutions and methods. Later within the series, Naruto manages to find out the Rasengan, a way that took the fourth Hokage three years to develop, in only a month (he takes a few days for the primary step, three weeks for the second, and one week for the third). An example of Naruto's inventiveness is shown here -- he lacks the chakra control required to execute the technique using just one hand, but he settles for an inferior delivery method which is slower and requires another hand (either by occupying his other one or employing a Kage bunshin). While not on par with the first, Naruto's version remains very effective.

Later within the manga, Naruto is seen to be ready to use Rasengan with just one hand (though this could be a misinterpretation thanks to the graphic limitations of the manga). Early within the Naruto II arc while bent rescue Gaara, Naruto uses a replacement version of Rasengan called Odama Rasengan- essentially two combined Rasengan spheres from him and a clone requiring just one hand of every, again suggesting that he's now capable of executing Rasengan as originally intended.

Team 7
To become a genin, additionally to graduating from the Ninja Academy, one must first undergo an evaluation with a Jōnin; if one passes, they're going to be assigned thereto Jonin for training. Naruto, Haruno Sakura (his crush), and Uchiha Sasuke (her crush) are assigned to Team 7 under the leadership of Hatake Kakashi. The evaluation test is straightforward. There are three members and two bells: the 2 who manage to place their hands on a bell win and are awarded food, and therefore the one who is overlooked remains hungry. Kakashi easily defends himself from all three, and after a short time calls an opportunity and points out their flaws in teamwork; he lets Sakura and Sasuke eat so that they can all try again later, but forbids them to feed Naruto, who is additionally tied to a log permanently measure. Sakura and Sasuke plan to go against Kakashi's words and feed Naruto anyway, figuring that if the matter is their teamwork this can be an honest thanks to starting performing on it; Team 7 thus becomes the primary group that Kakashi ever passed to be Genin, as this is often precisely the message he was trying to urge across - caring for your friends is more important than "the rules".

Though Genin is only alleged to continue D-Rank missions, Naruto insists on doing something more exciting and therefore the Sandaime Hokage agrees to send them on a C-Rank mission to escort a client. During their mission, the team is attacked by two enemy Chūnin- something that's definitely not alleged to happen on C-Rank missions- and Naruto panics and freezes; Sasuke, however, deals with the attackers quite efficiently. Sasuke rubs his one-upping Naruto in by calling him a "Scaredy-cat"; this name-calling, which Naruto would imitate repeatedly later within the series, maybe a defining moment within the Naruto-Sasuke rivalry. Team 7 also undergoes chakra training during this arc of the manga, another point of rivalry between the 2 ninjas, as they constantly challenge themselves to undertake to outdo one another, but instead find yourself helping and motivating one another to succeed.

Naruto's "hidden power" is additionally revealed during this arc. during a particularly ferocious battle during which he believes Sasuke has been killed, Naruto loses control and is consumed by Kyūbi's chakra. Its power is so immense that the chakra is visible, all of Naruto's wounds heal near-instantaneously, and Naruto's appearance changes. He completely overwhelms his enemy with this power and speed. Although the facility of the Kyūbi is introduced at now, the complete extent of it's not shown yet. Naruto has not communicated with the Demon Fox inside him; he only subconsciously calls upon this power.

After his graduation, Naruto gradually becomes more acknowledged and appreciated, as more and more people are available in contact with the important Naruto behind the "demon" and "idiot prankster" stigmas. From his previous state of isolation, he develops friendships with all kinds of people; his relationship with Sasuke grows into a mixture of friendship and rivalry, eventually escalating into very strong friendship and a rivalry of epic proportions, while Haruno Sakura's role slowly develops from that of Naruto's mere crush into that of his important friend.

Chuunin exam
Team 7 returns to Konoha to continue with their lives as regular Genin, accomplishing menial missions. Eventually, whilst twiddling with Konohamaru and his friends, Naruto meets with two of the three Genin from Sunagakure (Hidden Sand), Kankurō, and Temari and shortly learns the rationale for his or her presence; Chūnin Selection Exams are in effect. Naruto is thrilled about the likelihood of becoming a Chūnin, and though he fails to, various events during the exams drastically affect his ability and enrich his social relations (much later within the manga, when Naruto reminisces on how he was alone but slowly more and more people became his friends, we see a growing line which first contains Iruka, Kakashi, Sasuke and Sakura, and later expands to incorporate people he met on the Chūnin exam).

During the exam, Naruto finds himself for the primary time during a truly desperate situation, up against Orochimaru - an S-ranked criminal so powerful that the third Hokage later mentions that there's nobody within the hidden Leaf Village which will fight him equally (even he, he admits, cannot). Naruto and Sasuke's reactions to things are an entire reversal of what happened in their previous mission - Sasuke is paralyzed with panic while Naruto fights on fearlessly, at one point stopping Orochimaru's huge summoned snake in its tracks on his own, and muttering to Sasuke, during a flash of glorious comeuppance that marks another milestone in their rivalry, "are you alright ... scaredy-cat?". Naruto eventually snaps Sasuke out of his panic, and when Naruto is knocked out Sasuke continues to fight Orochimaru.

Naruto vastly improves inability during the three stages of the Chuunin exam; besides winning his first true fight (against Kiba) by having shadow replications perform a combo attack, he improves his chakra control by practicing walking on water, learns the way to call upon Kyūbi's energy at will and the way to use the summoning technique to call a toad to his aid (the former skill essential for the usability of the latter, as without Kyūbi's chakra his summons are generally not far more than tadpoles). He uses these skills to a strong effect in later battles, and at the climax of the arc triumphs against Gaara, an opponent Sasuke couldn't face equally, thus reversing their roles and inducing in Sasuke deep feelings of inferiority - through Sasuke still attempts to take care of an equivalent attitude ahead of Naruto, to hold close his former superiority. At an early point, Naruto tells Sasuke that he wants to fight him during the exam; Sasuke acknowledges Naruto in his own way afterward when he tells him that he wants to fight him also.    
In the month between the third stage preliminary matches and therefore the third stage main matches, Naruto meets Jiraiya - one among Konoha's legendary three - for the primary time. Jiraiya agrees to be his sensei and is that the one who teaches him most of the advanced techniques he learns during that point. He also undergoes a quick training period under Ebisu, who earlier saw him as nothing quite the container of the demon fox but after spending a while with him decides that he's indeed a real ninja of the leaf.

Naruto's defining trait of being extremely spirited and never abandoning is further emphasized during this arc. During the written test part, when given a choice between taking an issue or not taking an issue - when not taking it might mean failing the exam, and taking it but not answering correctly would mean failing and staying a genin forever - he not only chooses to require the question but proclaims his resolve to will himself be Hokage albeit he stays a genin forever loudly, inspiring many of us within the room to try to an equivalent (in a twist, it later seems that the entire point of the "question" was to ascertain who was fit and who wasn't fit being a chūnin, an occupation during which one doesn't have a choice of whether to undertake missions which risk everything or not, and Naruto has answered correctly by merely deciding to confront it). He also faces up determinedly to Hyūga Neji and Gaara - Two opponents that, he frankly admits to himself often at various points during the arc, terrify him.

Naruto's encounters during the Chūnin exam arc are characterized by Naruto concerning or opposing sentiments and outlooks on life, and it's through this relationship that he makes many new friends (and on three different occasions, by defeating an enemy). He gradually bonds with Rock Lee, a Taijutsu expert, who represents the perfect of diligence prevailing against all odds and stands up against the far more powerful Gaara during the third stage preliminary exams even while unconscious. Naruto deeply identifies with Lee and feels very pitying him when Gaara beats him (since he does such a radical job on, consistent with the doctors' first impressions, permanently cripple Lee.)

Another contrast that deeply affects Naruto is that the clash between Hyūga Hinata, the forsaken heir of the Hyūga clan head house, and Hyūga Neji, her cousin, who is far stronger but will never be the heir because he's a neighborhood of the branch house. Naruto watches the beginning of the fight with little knowledge of either fighter (apart from that Hinata may be a nice person, as she offered to let him copy off of her paper within the written test stage and offered him medicine immediately after his fight with Inuzuka Kiba); however a few minutes later, after Hinata mumbles quietly that she just wanted to vary herself and Neji lectures her about the supreme rule of destiny and the way people cannot change, Naruto is already shouting into the stadium for Hinata to face up for herself. She loses the fight, very similar to Lee loses his own fight with Gaara - still standing at some extent where she should technically be dead; when she finally goes down, Naruto is so overwhelmed sympathetically for her predicament and antagonism for Neji's attitude that he closes his punch round her overflowing blood and flings it at Neji, promising to her that he will beat the Hyūga prodigy himself.

Naruto's fight with Neji a month later may be a very dramatic one. As techniques are used and advantages are gained and nullified, Neji lectures Naruto very similar to he did earlier with Hinata, telling him that dropouts remain dropouts and can't change. Naruto suffers somewhat of an emotional impact when Neji gives him a speech about the Hokages being people that were destined to become ones, and the way one cannot become one simply because they need to; Ultimately, however, he would have none of it and keeps confronting Neji about his attitude, until Neji tells him of the tragedy of his father's death and therefore the Hyūga fate of hatred. Naruto eventually wins the wade through sheer motivation and believing in victory, and within the process changes Neji's outlook on life one-hundred and eighty degrees, inspiring him to make his own fate and forming another important bond ("Stop talking about fate and the way it cannot be changed," says Naruto sardonically, "you're not like me. you are not a dropout.")

The climax of the arc is Naruto's battle with Gaara. Gaara represents the other reaction to Naruto's very predicament than the one Naruto had; Naruto searched for acknowledgment and a spotlight to make his identity, while Gaara built more and more walls around himself, eventually concluding that his purpose in life was to kill everybody that wasn't him. initially, Naruto is clearly outpowered, but later within the fight, he gains more ground by using clever tactics and employing the techniques Jiraiya taught him. Most of all what enables him to triumph is his devotion to his important people, which seems to be a source of the much greater strength of Gaara's hatred, contrary to Naruto's first impression that Gaara's state of mind makes him somebody he couldn't possibly face.

After the battle ends, Gaara wonders whether he'd be ready to love again, and appears later within the series as a positive character and another important friend Naruto has made during this arc.

Sasuke arc
Naruto's influence on Sasuke, though profound, is powerless to stop Sasuke from deciding to become a Nukenin (Missing-nin) and leaving the leaf to receive training from Orochimaru. Sasuke's decision to go away is that the results of a sequence of events that rekindles his hatred and desire to avenge his clan such a lot that it overshadows all other influences in his life. This experience is traumatic to Naruto, as he has promised Sakura to bring Sasuke back and this is often the primary time he's unable to measure up to something he promised to a crucial person. Unlike Jiraiya, however, who from his own experience with Orochimaru believes that Sasuke is just too far gone which Naruto should ditch him and consider his own survival, Naruto believes that there's hope for Sasuke yet. He tells Sakura that he will, one day, bring Sasuke back to the village and live up to his promise.

Naruto II arc
After this failed plan to retrieve Sasuke, Naruto learns that circumstances have granted him a 3-year window to organize himself for when the time involves face Orochimaru (who has switched bodies prematurely and now has got to wait 3 years before executing his original plan of transferring into Sasuke) and defend himself against additional kidnap attempts from the shady organization Akatsuki (who, consistent with Jiraiya's information sources and for reasons unknown, halt their plans to aim to capture Naruto for 3 years). Naruto takes this chance for intensive training under Jiraiya, as does Sakura under Tsunade. As Jiraiya was the Fourth's sensei, this places Naruto during an excellent position to truly fulfill his dream to become Hokage or a minimum of a ninja of great renown, as most legendary ninjas and homages are closely tied to at least one another through student-teacher relations (though she doesn't tell him this, Tsunade is already certain he will get older to become Hokage).

When Naruto returns to the village two and a half years later he finds out, much to his chagrin, that he's the sole one among his former-Genin social circle (known because the "Rookie 9") who remains a Genin. During his absence, the remainder became Chūnin (and Hyūga Neji even made Jōnin).

In this new arc of the story, dubbed Naruto II, we see the expansion of all of the characters, including Naruto. Naruto shows physical growth, sports a replacement outfit, and appears to not only have increased in strength and techniques, but intelligence also (the pervertedness of his Sensei also seems to possess slightly rubbed off on him). He has little time, however, to wander the village and greet all his old friends, because the Hokage sends him, Sakura and Kakashi on yet one more rescue mission, this point to retrieve the helpless Gaara (who, to Naruto's utter awe, has become the fifth Kazekage during his absence) from the hands of Akatsuki, who decide to extract the sealed demon from him for purposes yet unknown. Jiraiya's information sources indicate that Akatsuki has been growing impatient with their lack of success capturing Naruto, and thus this clash with Akatsuki seems to possess been inevitable.

Naruto, alongside Sakura, Kakashi, Team Gai, and Chiyo, continue a mission to rescue the recently-captured Gaara from the Akatsuki. they're first confronted by Itachi and Kisame, who end up being body substitutes using Shoten no Jutsu (Shapeshifting Technique) and defeat them. Upon arrival at the grotto where Gaara is being held, the group figures out that a barrier jutsu seals off the doorway. To facilitate entry, Team Gai goes to get rid of four seals scattered within the area; doing so creates clones of them that copy their every move. Meanwhile, Naruto and Kakashi plan to confront Deidara while Chiyo and Sakura face Sasori. Both pairs defeat the Akatsuki members, and Gai and company defeat their clones, with help from Neji.

Upon retrieving Gaara from Deidara's clay bird, Naruto undergoes the second-stage Kyūbi transformation, which he used against Sasuke. Because Kakashi knew the way to contain Naruto's further transformation employing a special seal he received from Jiraiya, it's been implied that Jiraiya also witnessed Naruto's transformation during the last three years.

- The surname "Uzumaki" translates to "spiral". The Konoha leaf symbol is drawn with an arrow attached to a spiral, the seal on his abdomen may be a spiral, and one among his attacks is Rasengan which suggests "Spiralling Sphere". One wonders if the spirals surrounding Naruto are a mirrored image of the most character, or if Naruto's surname may be a reflection of the spirals of his village. Uzumaki could also be a generic surname representing the village given to those without a surname.

- "Uzumaki" also can mean "whirlpool". The Naruto whirlpool, named after the town of Naruto, lies between the said city and Awaji Island.

- Naruto can mean "maelstrom" and is additionally the name for a sliced stick of Kamaboko with a pink whirlpool design within the middle which is employed as a topping for Ramen (Naruto's favorite food). the Japanese sometimes use it as a nickname for the commercial at (@).   
- The Kitsune may be a well-known character in Japanese myth, and therefore the influence behind not only the Demon Fox a.k.a. the Kyūbi but many other reincarnations in modern Japanese culture. It likes to play tricks and pranks on people, and on occasions transforms itself into a gorgeous woman and seduces a person (obviously the inspiration for Ninja Centerfold (Oiroke no Jutsu, literally Sexy Technique), which is usually called "Sexy no Jutsu" by people within the North American Naruto fanbase). Foxes also are known to be especially fierce and resourceful when pushed into a corner, and may even kill a hound or other powerful animals, something which also reflects Naruto's determination. It should even be noted that each time Naruto loses control and is overwhelmed by the Kyuubi's chakra, he seemingly gains another "tail" of chakra. This stems from the Japanese myth that when kitsune reach 100 years, they gain a further tail, also as increased powers and intelligence; their powers and number of tails still grow every 100 years until the age of 1000 once they receive the ninth and final tail and incredible powers which in some versions even reach up to immortality. The Kyuubi's powers are limited to seep through to what proportion Naruto can take, though it seems that this limit is severely stretched the older Naruto gets, and can probably be broken altogether when their chakra finishes melding.

- October 10, Naruto's birthday, was "Taiiku no hi" (Health and Sports Day) in Japan when his character was conceived - a vacation filled with physical activity fit a hyperactive kid. the vacation, however, was moved to the second Monday of October during 1999.

- consistent with the sport Boy Advance game Naruto: Konoha Senki one among Naruto's hobbies is gardening and he's the one who gives Kakashi Mr. Ukki, the plant seen on Kakashi's windowsill. consistent with the official databooks his hobbies are playing pranks and watering plants.
