Naruto is a manga series created by Masashi Kishimoto, and centers around a young, hyperactive ninja known as Naruto Uzumaki, who constantly searches for approval and recognition from his peers.

Anko Mitarashi (Mitarashi Anko)

  • [To Naruto] Kids like you get their blood all over this forest.
  • [To Amachi] So we meet again, weirdo.
  • Time's a-wastin' people, let's go!
  • Arriving!

Choji Akimichi (秋道チョウジ, Akimichi Chōji)

  • Chubbies rule!
  • There is something even more inexcusable than making fun of me, or eating the last bite of an expensive meal... and that's making fun of my friends!
  • I will not allow you to have the last bite!!
  • This punch is heavier than life itself!
  • It's no use. I'm 100 times stronger now.
  • I'm not fat, I'm pleasingly plump!

Dosu Kinuta (Kinuta Dosu)

  • We are even for the moment, but shall we meet again we will neither run 'nor hide.
  • His eyes! He's not just looking at us, he's seeing through us!
  • Fine then, Fatso. If you want this match to end quickly, I'll just win it quickly.
  • What do you think is faster, your sand or my sound?
  • You two understand that our target is just one thing right?
  • Some look-out, you're half asleep. At least you don't have to keep watch anymore, what's the point after we've already found you?

Enma (猿魔)

  • It's over, Orochimaru. I'm going to snap you like a twig! It should have been done years ago!

Gaara (我愛羅)

  • You're a disgrace to our village.
  • People cannot win against their loneliness.
  • Loneliness is this world's worst kind of pain.
  • Shut up... or I'll kill you.
  • Bitter crimson tears flow from lifeless eyes, and mingle with the endless sands... Bestowing ever greater power upon the demon god.
  • You can make a rain of 1,000 needles. I will make it rain blood.
  • As long as I have sand, I can do anything.
  • If they look at me the wrong way, they're gonna die.
  • By then, they realized I had... emotional problems.
  • [After being wounded by Sasuke] BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!! IT'S MY BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!
  • It's too bad I don't think of you as my big brother at all. If you get in my way... I'll kill you.
  • Is that all you've got? Let me feel it a little more... There isn't enough... blood!
  • As long as there are people in this world to kill, I will not cease to exist.
  • A battle... is a gamble... where one pits one's existence against another's... and you try to kill each other... and where only the victor gets to savor the worth of his existence.
  • They looked at me the wrong way... so they're gonna die.
  • Orochimaru has brainwashed you well... you sad little pawn.
  • I was born... a monster!!
  • Yashamaru... what does it mean... to hurt?
  • [Young Gaara to his uncle] So... could I be injured too? Just like everyone else... It...always hurts. [Clutches his heart] It doesn't bleed...but it hurts right here.
  • When you feel that the one you admire is disgraced, you are terribly hurt as well and become enraged. The more precious the person you worship is to you... Fighting for those important to you... He was... the same as Uzumaki Naruto. But just because someone is important to you doesn't necessarily mean that person is good.
  • Even if you knew that person was evil, people cannot win against their loneliness.
  • You have someone in your life whom you honor and revere so much that every hurt on them is inflicted on you as well. And the closer they are to you, the greater the pain.
  • To feel so strongly for someone you would fight for them... and die for them... You and Naruto Uzumaki have that in common. However, what if this person you would honor and die for is not a virtuous person?
  • Perhaps the companionship of an evil person is preferable to loneliness.
  • Leave me alone, Temari. Go away. You're nothing but a nuisance. [Smacks her into a tree.] I don't need you.
  • Uchiha. I don't have friends as you have. But they're not what makes you strong. It's your purpose that does it. In that way we're alike. But mine is the stronger purpose for only by destroying you and all that you represent that I can improve that I exist. Only by killing you that I know what live is.
  • Tell me what is your true purpose. Why do you seek power?
  • To live I must kill and you are my prey!
  • Repulsive aren't you?

Volume 11

  • I took the life of the woman I was supposed to call mother in the process of being born... in order to become the world's strongest shinobi... an incarnation of sand was implanted inside of me...
  • I would fight only for myself and love only myself. If all other people exist to magnify that love, then there is no more a splendid world than this one.

Gamabunta (ガマブン太)

  • [To Manda] I've always wanted a snakeskin wallet.
  • I'm going to settle this lackey!!
  • [When asked why he appeared by Naruto]] That's the same question I was going to ask that pervert!

Haku (白)

  • Is there... somebody precious to you?
  • I want to make his dreams come true...
  • Oh, by the way... I'm a boy.
  • I'm sorry, Master Zabuza, I have failed you.
  • When you protect the ones important to you, your true strength will show.
  • Once... I was precious. I belonged... to... my... parents.
  • I'm sure that the boy I killed, who shared that skill, must also have grown up knowing the pain of which I speak. We are special. We are powerful. And we are feared.
  • And I was forced to accept it. That was the most painful thing... Accepting that I was alone in the world. Superfluous. Unwanted. Shunned.
  • That is when I realized that in all of the world no one needed me. I was alone.
  • Can you understand? Not having a dream... not being needed by anyone... The pain of merely being alive.
  • Often people have it wrong, mistakenly believing... that showing mercy to an enemy is kindness. They spare the foe whose life is in their hands... But don't you see? It's an empty existence... to go on living... alone and unloved... when defeat's already cost you your dream!
  • I have thought two steps ahead of you.
  • I am of no more use as his tool. Please, kill me.

Hinata Hyuuga (ひュ鵜がひ鉈, Hyuuga Hinata)

  • Oh...umm...When you cheered for me...I felt like I had become stronger... After the preliminareies ended, I started liking myself a little more... To other people it may not seem like I've changed much but.. I... Felt like I was able to change... It was thanks to you Naruto-kun...
  • In my eyes... You're a proud failure!
  • When I look at you, I get an intense feeling in my heart... Because you're not perfect... Because you fail... you have the strength to get back up... Because I believe that's where true strength is... I...I think you are an incredibly strong person, Naruto-kun.
  • Good luck, Naruto-kun.
  • I have to do my best! In front of the person I admire most, who's finally seeing the real me!

Ino Yamanaka (山中いの, Yamanaka Ino)

  • There's no meaning to a flower unless it blooms.
  • I believe you have the potential to bloom into something even more beautiful than the cosmos.
  • Oh, I'm sorry. Her head's so empty, so I mistook her for a vase and put flowers in her. You might want to spit that out quick, though. Those can be quite poisonous.
  • What?! Why wasn't he affected by my sexiness?!
  • I'm the hottest girl in the whole Hidden Leaf Village!!! Not like someone out there....
  • Sakura, you've blossomed into a beautiful flower...
  • Yeah!!!! GO SHIKAMARU!!!!!!!
  • Billboard brow!!!
  • I'll never lose to you, Sakura.

Iruka Umino (うみのイルカ, Umino Iruka)

  • When a person dies, he disappears, along with his past, current lifestyle, and his future. Many people die in missions and wars. They die easily and in surprisingly simple ways. Hayate was one of them. Those who died had hopes and dreams, but everyone has something as important as those: parents, siblings, friends, lovers; people who are important to you, they trust and help each other. The bond between the people important to you ever since birth and the string that binds them becomes thicker and stronger as time goes by... It's beyond reason. Those bound to you by that string will do that because it is important.
  • It seems like the small leaves in the Village of Konoha have inherited that "will of fire" you spoke of, Third. The fire on the leaves will eventually burn greater and stronger.... It will flash its light and protect this village.
  • I hate the fox, but the boy - I don't hate the boy.
  • [as a child] Why should I be sad?! My parents died protecting the village from the monster fox; they're heroes, and I'm the son of those heroes! If I cry, it's because I'm happy! I'm not even sad that they went and left me all alone...
  • [when Naruto transforms into a woman in front of the whole class] CUT THE STUPID TRICKS! THIS IS YOUR LAST WARNING!!
  • [As Iruka protected Naruto from Mizuki.] I was so hard on you, yelling, scolding... It must have hurt
  • He is a citizen of Konohagakure... Uzumaki Naruto.

Itachi Uchiha (うちはイタチ, Uchiha Itachi)

  • Foolish little brother. If you wish to kill me one day in hate and revenge... Surviving in such an unsightly manner as this... By all means, flee; Cling to your wretched life. Then one day, when you possess the same eyes... Come back and face me.
  • You're still too weak. You don't have enough hate, and you know something...? [leans in to whisper in Sasuke's ear] You never will.
  • Even the strongest of opponents always has a weakness.
  • [To Sasuke] Go away. You don't interest me at the moment.
  • We are unique siblings. I am the barrier you must overcome, so you and I will continue to exist together.
  • This is what happens when you are skilled. Power causes you to become isolated and arrogant.
  • I've had enough... There's no hope left for this worthless clan.
  • [To the police, after beating them for accusing him of Shisui's murder] Like I told you before: Appearances and preconceptions aren't going to tell you anything. For instance, you've made the mistake of assuming I'm a patient man. The clan, the clan... You underestimate your own abilties with no idea of the depth of my own. And look at you now... Groveling in the dirt.
  • Obssessed with the clan, obssessed with the organization, obssessed with our lineage... A worthless compulsion that enslaves us and limits our capabilities... Leading us to fear what you don't understand.
  • The people of this clan are all the same; You focus on the trivial and lose sight of what's most important. Change is impossible in this fog of ignorance. How can we evolve when regulation is all we know?
  • How long can you, a person that does not posses the bloodline limit, deal with this?
  • [To Sasuke] Being the best isn't all it's cracked up to be. When you have power, you become arrogant and isolated from the world, no matter how coveted and sought after you are in the beginning. Even if you were to hate me... Isn't that what older brothers are for?
  • I'm sorry, Sasuke. Some other time, okay?
  • Like me, you may be one of the few who can use Mangekyou Sharingan. But there is a catch... You must take the life of your best friend. You must kill him... Just as I did.
  • Now I see it... People hate and fear what they don't understand. Pathetic.
  • You dare opose the Tsukuyomi, you will now wander in a bottomless pit of pain.

Jiraiya (自来也)

  • All you need to be a shinobi is the guts for never give up!
  • Oh, I'm not a little pervert! ...I'm a big one!
  • You have no talent at all. Just die!
  • Flat-chested Tsunade!
  • They found out I was peeking! Now my research is ruined!
  • Jiraiya's here!
  • Oh, ladies! Can you show me the way to town?
  • I like them ripe and luscious with curves like that, see? And big, but not too big, know what I mean? If you bring me something like that, I will train you 'till the cows come home! (After Naruto brings him a watermelon instead of a woman) THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT, YOU MORON!!
  • The Toad Mountain Sage never lies!
  • Stop calling me Pervy Sage! (Japanese version: "Erosennin")!
  • You two don't know me at all, do you? Should've done your homework. Jiraiya the Toad Sage falls victim to no woman's charm! Rare beauties drop for me like blossoms in a storm! It isn't in my nature to be duped by the wiles of women. When you've reached the stature I have, the ladies kneel and worship at your awesomeness!!
  • [preparing to put Naruto's life in danger during his training] Forgive me, Fourth.
  • [talking to Naruto] The only similarities between you and the Fourth Hokage are your pig-headedness and your spiky blonde hair!
  • The most important ninja talent... is not the number of techniques one acquires. The most important thing... is a spirit that never gives up!
  • [advising Naruto to forget about Sasuke] It's not only jutsus and power. As shinobis, we must be able to make sure we have proper judgment and make good decisions. If you want to live as a shinobi, you must be wise. If you're a fool... then it will be a world full of pain. That's reality.
  • If you go after Sasuke... you will return with nothing, if you return at all. But a fool as great as you are may be able to make this work. When you leave the hospital, get ready, you big fool.


  • Tayuya, a girl shouldn't talk that way.
  • You know, when there are five people in a group, there will be at least one that is useless. That kind of guy will always be the fool. When the unexpected happens, he will be used and discarded.
  • What impressive chakra! But it's still not the main dish!
  • It must be tough on the underlings to have such a stupid leader.

Kakashi Hatake (はたけカカシ, Hatake Kakashi)

  • Hmmm... how do I put this? My first impression of this group... You're a bunch of idiots! (English dub; TV broadcast version).
  • Hmmm... how do I put this? My first impression of you is... I hate you. (Same quote as above, but literally translated from Japanese to English)
  • Hidden leaf ancient taijutsu supreme technique... 1,000 years of death!!!
  • Leaf Village secret-finger justu... 1,000 years of death!
  • Those in the ninja world who break the rules are scum, that's true....but those who abandon their friends.. are lower than scum.
  • Naruto, it was really cool how you removed the poison and all, but if you lose any more blood, you're going to die. Good idea to stop the bleeding now.. seriously.
  • A ninja must see underneath the underneath.
  • I will show you my own move.
  • Hey guys, sorry I'm late, I'm afraid I got lost on the path of life.
  • Sorry I'm late guys, a black cat crossed my path so I had to go the long way.
  • Sorry I'm late. You wouldn't believe the traffic.
  • Oh... me? My name is Kakashi Hatake. What I like... I don't feel like telling you that. My dreams for the future..hmm... never really thought about for my hobbies... well I have a lot of hobbies.
  • I'm telling you this because you don't get it, you think you get it, which isn't the same as actually getting it. Get it?
  • Don't look away... When you live like a shinobi, this is how it ends.
  • I've lived longer than you. And times have been bad. I know the pain of loss. You and I haven’t really been fortunate. It's true. But it could be worse. For me, and for you, too.... We've found good friends, haven't we? Because of your losses, you should understand.
  • (Whenever Might Guy rambles, especially if it's about Lee) ...I'm sorry, did you say something?
  • I don't know what this boy means to you, Guy, but I shouldn't have to tell you that we never bring our personal feelings into play. I didn't think you were capable of it.
  • Guy... what I said earlier... I was out of line. I was being a self-righteous fool. I realize now that if I'd been in your shoes, I probably couldn't have stopped him, either.
  • YOU!!! ...pass!
  • [When his students treat him to ramen to get him to remove his mask] Maybe it'll snow... No! Or are you guys hiding something?
  • You can't demolish the client Naruto. It doesn't work that way.
  • I never let my comrades die.
  • [When he sees an advertisement for "Make Out Paradise: The Movie] My favorite book... is going to be a movie? I'd better buy my tickets in advance!
  • [in Kakashi Gaiden] Whether you hate me or not, I'm the leader. If the team is scattered, there's only one leader. Therefore, you must follow the instructions of the commander. Obito, you haven't got any strength. Because of that, I'm the leader.


  • But I want to play around before some noisy people come!
  • You tick me off. I hate short people anyway. And you're so impertinent for someone younger than me. It makes me want to break you.
  • Bring 'em on!
  • You're making this too easy.
  • He wanted me to attack. So he can get his creepy crawlies into Crow's body. Now they are going after my chakra puppet strings.
  • [Thinking] What a sucker. He doesn't know I can re-establish control over my puppet with a blink of an eye. It's what makes me an expert puppet master. And so what if Crow's body is out of commission? I don't need his body. Every part of him is a lethal weapon. [To Shino] Looks like you underestimated me, bug boy. For the last time! There's enough poison on that to drop an elephant, so you're dead.
  • A fair warning... we ninja of the Sand aren't as easygoing as those of the Leaf. But getting close to Kuroari so carelessly...isn't good!
  • I can't retreat after he's underestimated me!
  • [Thinking after Naruto says he doesn't like him] This toast!

Kiba Inuzuka (犬塚キバ, Inuzuka Kiba)

  • Akamaru's gonna fight too!
  • Yeah, I got Naruto! This one's an easy win!
  • I must be a pretty pathetic owner for you to have bitten me, Akamaru....
  • Hinata, untie the ropes before you faint.
  • [to Naruto] Hokage?! You can't even beat me! Who'd respect a Hokage like you?! Tell you what though... I'll become Hokage in your place!!
  • I'm always ready for action! Yahoo!


  • I will study your ability thoroughly and find your weak points.
  • I was told that if I get seriously hurt, it would damage my nervous system and I would not be able to mold my chakra. That was very close.
  • Once my Kumo Nenkin(Golden Spider Spines) is exposed to air, it transforms into a metal alloy. Also, it doesn't allow chakra to pass through it.
  • What's going on here !? How did he... (sees the hole in Neji's shoulder) What gives? How could I have missed it by 15 centimeters?

Kimimaro Kaguya (かぐや君麻呂, Kaguya Kimimaro)

  • If Tayuya comes back, I'll kill her.
  • Is there really a god? If there is one, why does he keep me confined in here?
  • [to the Sound Ninja Four] Which do you prefer? To die, or to obey?
  • Lets see, how should I kill you?
  • You've only seen one of my dances.
  • I see...since I am no longer going to be Lord Orochimaru's vessel, my duty is to protect the vessel.
  • I will see the truth of this world... LORD OROCHIMARU WILL SHOW ME!!!
  • I am not his pawn...! He is the one, the only one who ever gave my life meaning!! But how could the likes of you EVER UNDERSTAND THAT?!?
  • Gaara...

Kisame Hoshigaki (干柿鬼鮫, Hoshigaki Kisame)

  • Konoha's Uchiha clan and the Mist's Seven Shinobi-gatana seem petty before his name.
  • I'll enjoy shaving you to death.
  • Hmm... Itachi... it would be annoying if he moved around a lot. Perhaps we should cut off a leg or two?
  • Hmhmhmhm, I think I will play with you a bit before killing you!
  • (talking about Asuma to Itachi) He bothers me. Shall I kill him?

Manda (マンダ)

  • I wanted to kill and eat you all, but I can't with my mouth shut like this.... The next time we meet, be ready to face the consequences!
  • Orochimaru, I expect 100 sacrifices for this.

(マイト・ガイ, Maito Gai)

  • All your hard work will prove worthless... unless you believe in yourself!
  • Oh! That was so hip of you, Kakashi!
  • Lee, if you die, I'll die with you.
  • You guys are in the springtime of your youth!
  • I see your team didn't do too bad, Kakashi. They must have gotten real lucky. Of course with my team still around, your team is doomed to failure. After all, what matters on the next test is ability, and we've got you far outclassed. Well, I guess that part of growing up is learning to deal with heartbreak, huh, Kakashi?
  • Grr... Alright, Kakashi, you win this round. Boy, that drives me nuts when he acts so cool! There's no way I'm gonna let you get the best of me!
  • Now run, run into the sunset and suffer. But don't mess up your hair!
  • You put in so much effort, the operation will definitely succeed. For sure, the way to success will open. Just in case... no, suppose the worst happened... we will die together. Since I met you, my purpose has been to make sure that you become a great ninja. That's a promise.
  • Who wants to have an intense "man battle?"
  • Not just fast, but powerful too.
  • [to Lee when he begins to doubt whether he can succeed with hard work alone] All your hard work will prove worthless unless you believe in yourself!

Naruto Uzumaki (うずまきナルト, Uzumaki Naruto)

  • I never give up... I never go back on my word...thats the way of the ninja!
  • My dream is to become the greatest Hokage, that way the whole village will stop disrespecting me and treating me like im somebody ,somebody important
  • Sakura-chan, you sure do love Sasuke, don't you?
  • I'm Uzumaki Naruto! What I like is ramen, especially the kind at the Ichiraku Ramen shop. What I dislike is the three minute wait after you pour in the boiling water. My hobbies are eating ramen. And my to be the next Hokage!
  • Dattebayo! (Note: this nonsensical phrase is attached to sentences for emphasis; it is a compilation of the verb endings "da" "-tte ba" and "yo", but there's no real translation of the word. The English dub replaces it with "Believe it!")
  • If you lay a finger on my sensei... I'll kill you!
  • Bring it on, you jerk! Anything you throw at me I'll give it back a thousand fold!
  • My name is Naruto Uzumaki, and I'm going to defeat every one of you believe it!
  • When I'm with Iruka-sensei, I think if that's what having a father is like.... When I'm with you, I think if that's what having a brother is like.
  • Sakura-chan looks so sad lately.
  • Sasuke, I always knew you were alone. In the beginning I was glad because I thought you were like me - I wanted to talk to you! But you... didn't speak. You always had everyone watching you. You could do everything and we were too different. So I decided that you would become my rival. I didn't want to lose because I was called a loser all the time. Even when we became Team 7, I still thought this way. I always tried to lie but... but the truth is... I always wanted to be like you. I aspired to be like you. Because of that... I was glad that you wanted to fight me.
  • The pain of being lonely... is out of this world, isn't it?
  • Sasuke! Sasuke! Sasuke! What does he have that I don't have?!
  • The only weird thing here is your haircut!!!
  • I will bring Sasuke back for sure. This is a promise of a lifetime.
  • Sasuke won't give into someone like that! He's strong enough as it is, I promise!
  • After all that talk about your destiny, you don't really believe in it, do you?
  • So shut up about "destiny" and people can't change! 'Cause... unlike me... you're not a "failure."
  • That jutsu is so outdated! Watch this, my newly developed Sexy Jutsu.!
  • Lay a finger on my sensei, and you die!
  • [to Sasuke] Are you okay...scaredy-cat?
  • [To Sasuke in his second Curse stage] So you're special, huh? You won't be so special when I'm through with you!
  • [To Sasuke] I won't let Orochimaru have you! I will stop you even if I have to break your arms and legs!
  • (To Kabuto before using the Rasengan) Until I reach my dream, I refuse to die.
  • Nothing wrong with crying when you're happy.
  • [To Neji.] Because somebody told me I was a failure!
  • [To Neji.] When I become Hokage, I'll change the Hyuga clan!

Neji Hyuga (日向ネジ, Hyūga Neji)

  • So you're not going to withdraw...? Then don't blame me for what happens to you.
  • So this is the full extent of the main branch's strength?
  • Hinata... this is the unalterable difference in strength... the distinction that separates the elite from the failure. This is the unchangeable reality. From the moment you said you wouldn't run, your defeat was inevitable. The only possible outcome was your present despair... Withdraw!
  • I can see with these eyes.... It's taking all your strength just to stand! You were burdened from birth with the destiny of the Hyuga clan's main branch.... You've hated and punished yourself for your own weakness and frailty... but you can't fight your nature... or change your fate. But you need not suffer anymore. Be at peace!
  • [after being stopped from attacking Hinata] Why are you and the other Jounin getting involved? The head family gets special treatment, huh?
  • Hey... you! Loser! I have two pieces of advice for you. First of all, of you intend to call yourself a shinobi, stop that stupid cheering of yours- it's disgraceful. And second... Once a failure, always a failure! You can't change that!
  • Naruto, sometimes, your eyes are even better than mine.
  • He will be saved. It's because, Naruto, you saved me from the darkness.
  • You are the strongest enemy I've ever met... but I have a reason why I cannot lose. The strongest opponent I ever met said this to me: "Unlike me, you're not a loser." I have always been called a genius; and I cannot lose, for the sake of those who believe I am a genius!

Obito Uchiha (うちはオビト, Uchiha Obito)

  • I didn't know what was proper... But I do now. You see, it won't be useless. I'm giving you my Sharingan.
  • I'm about to die. But I'll become your eye, and we'll see what happens in the future.
  • [asked if he knows what happens to rule-breakers] I do, and that's why the White Fang was a true hero.
  • Sure, in a ninja's world, those who violate the rules and fail to follow orders are lower than garbage. However, those who do not care for and support their fellows are even lower than that! If I'm scum, the rules are no good to me! And if breaking them makes me the wrong kind of shinobi... I'll crush all the so-called shinobi!!
  • I wasn't crying! There was dust in my eyes.

Orochimaru (大蛇丸)

  • There probably isn't any meaning in life. Perhaps you can find something interesting to do while you are alive. Like how you found that flower. Like how I found you.
  • This child seems quite exceptional...unlike you. His bloodline is that of the Uchiha clan, and his face and his body are very beautiful. He could be the perfect vessel to succeed me.
  • Well, I sort of have a goal, and if I were to state it in words, I like to see moving things. They're boring when they don't move. A windmill that is not moving can be nice from time to time, but most of the time, it's not even worth looking at. Now, I want to move the windmill with the wind called the Destruction of Konoha....
  • All things with a form will eventually perish.
  • I have eternal youth. I live forever.
  • The body ages, but the mind is immortal.
  • Konoha is not a village. It's merely an organization dubbed Konoha.
  • There is a limit to stupidity!
  • The title of Hokage is a piece of crap. Only an idiot becomes one.
  • How tranquil... or rather... how naïvely peaceful this nation has become... while all other countries are busy with military expansion races....
  • I want to master all techniques to understand the truth of this world.
  • Aging is pointless. That's how I feel when I look at you.
  • The petty mock battles end here. Starting now, history is made!
  • Darkness... When everything that you know and love... is taken from you so harshly... all you can think about is anger, hatred, and even revenge... and no one can save you.
  • You know how the game of chess is played... pieces must be sacrificed!
  • [To Tsunade] I've always wondered what it would be like to strangle that pretty little neck of yours!
  • [To Tsunade] You were the only one I would have spared.

Rock Lee (ロック・リー, Rokku Rī)

  • The lotus of the Leaf Village blooms twice! When we meet again, I shall be a stronger man.
  • [Thinking] Guy-sensei is just the coolest person ever! I mean, he is so cool, he practically glows with cool!
  • Your Sharingan is obviously a gift. Then why am I able to beat you? A dropout will beat a genius through hard work!
  • I do not try to hide or disguise my moves. I do not have to. Even if you can read them, you cannot stop them. You are too slow. Your eyes may be quick enough to stay one step ahead of me, but if body cannot keep up, what good does it do you?
  • I am the valliant green beast of the Hidden Leaf Village!
  • Okay! You caught me!! As soon as I said I wanted to be last... I tricked them! It is a natural law... You can throw a stone at a telephone pole time and again and never hit it... But the minute you aim to miss, you end up hitting the thing dead center. I did not really want to be the final act anyway!
  • Facing you so soon... makes me very happy!
  • Let's sweat our young sweat together!
  • If I catch 20 leaves, Sakura will begin to love me.
  • Neji...Sasuke...and...[Naruto's face appears in his mind]I can not be the only one who loses here!! Guy-sensei, please acknoweldge this! It is now... or never! The Third Gate! Gate of Life...Open!
  • I get an extra surge of power when I know that Guy-sensei is watching me.
  • If I can't do 400 push-ups I'll hit the dummy 800 times! If I can't hit the dummy 800 times, I'll do 1000 jump ropes!
  • [In the middle of a battle] Please wait, I have to take my medicine.
  • [To Kimimaro when drunk] What are you looking at?! Don't you know it is impolite to stare?!

Sakura Haruno (春野サクラ, Haruno Sakura)

  • Cha!
  • Ino-Pig!
  • My name is Haruno Sakura. The thing I like is ... Well... And uhm.. My dream for the future is... My hobby is... What I dislike is Naruto!
  • If I fail this I'll be separated from Sasuke. This is a test for my love.
  • Ino... you like Sasuke too, right? That makes you... my rival.
  • Well... I guess that means... we're rivals from now on...
  • On that day, you taught me that solitude is painful! I understand that so well right now. I have family, and I have friends, but if Sasuke leaves... to me... it will be the same as being alone!
  • Don't worry about it Naruto. Next time, we'll do it together!
  • All I've been doing is watching you two from behind... Now, get a good look at my back!
  • If you leave, then I'll scream!
  • SHANNARO! [Inner Sakura. It doesn't have a real meaning, but can be translated into "Hell Yeah" "Hell No" or "Dammit" depending on who is translating it. The English version has changed it into "CHA!"]
  • Hehe... so predictable. My choice is the daffodil... It's a persistent flower that shows its gruesome face even in the blaze of the winter... patiently waiting for a reprieve without bowing to the monstrous savagery.
  • Naruto... only you... My only wish... Please... bring Sasuke back!
  • [Inner Sakura] Ka-ching! My absolute love conquers all!
  • I'm sorry, Sensei. I tried to stop him, but he didn´t listen to me![Inner Sakura] Set him up and knock him down! That was AWESOME!
  • It's not scary to die.... for the people who are precious to you!
  • I always considered be a true ninja. I said I loved Sasuke...and I always lectured Naruto, like I was better then him. But it's all empty words. So, this time,'s your turn to watch my back!
  • This isn't meant for YOU!
  • I don't care if you rip off my limbs...I don't care if you stab me a thousand times...I'm gonna beat you...and I'll make you tell me where Sasuke-kun is!
  • Now it's your turn to watch my back.

Sasuke Uchiha (うちはサスケ, Uchiha Sasuke)

  • [To Naruto] You're not hurt are you? Scaredy-cat.
  • A ninja waits until the time is right. When the enemy sleeps and drops his guard. When his weapons lie forgotten in the stillness of the night. That is the moment for a ninja to strike.
  • [Describing Naruto and Jiraiya] Have you seen a blonde kid with a stupid face who is around my age and a man with white hair?
  • No matter what darkness lies ahead, I will pursue that path. No matter what, I will obtain power!
  • I only share one bond - that of hate with my brother. Naruto... Come! Let me break those bonds!
  • Why...? Why did you come so far for me?
  • My name is Sasuke Uchiha. There are many things I dislike, and not much I do like. And I have an ambition that I have no plan to leave as a dream. The restoration of my clan, and to... kill a certain someone.
  • My only goal in life... is revenge.
  • [In the death forest, Sasuke wakes up] Heh... I've never felt better...!
  • You're such a loser.
  • [To Sakura] It's...okay. I've got your back.
  • I'll show you the true strength of Sharingan.
  • Naruto, don't... let your dream die.
  • [Running from Itachi as a child] Please! I don't want to die!
  • Do you know, Naruto... that if both you and your opponent are first-class ninja, you can read each other's minds when your fists meet? There is no need for words. I know you aren't naïve, Naruto, so you can read the true mind. Can you read my mind?
  • Did you know... This place is called "The Valley of the End." It's the perfect stage. Right... Naruto?
  • The only one who's going to eliminate him... is me!
  • It's just like you said, Brother. I fostered my hatred for you all this time. I've lived my life for one single purpose: to see you die! It ends here!!
  • I never want to see another important person die in front of me again.
  • Just shut up for once... What the heck to you know about it? It's not like you ever had a family in the first place. You were on your own right from the beginning! What makes you think you know anything about it, huh?! I'm suffering now because I had those ties. How on earth could you possibly understand what it feels like to lose all that?!
  • It's too late for me, Naruto... It's just too late.
  • [to Sakura] I knew it... I'm not the same as you. I'm travelling a path the rest of you can't follow. I know that the four of us have worked together, and for a while I thought I could take that path instead. But in the end, I've decided on revenge... That's always been my reason for living... I'll never be like you and Naruto.
  • [Cursed Seal Form 2 emerges] There's no question that you were special... Unfortunately, you're not quite as special as I am.
  • Sakura ....Thank you for everything.
  • I have no idea what scheme you sand-village clowns are pulling but i'll stop it, no matter what it is.
  • My dreams are not of the future. My dreams are of the past.
  • [To Sakura in Death Forest] Sakura, tell me...who did that to you?
  • My name is Uchiha Sasuke. There are plenty of things I dislike, considering there is almost nothing I do like. It is pointless to talk about "dreams"...That's just a word...But one thing I have is determination. I am going to restore my clan and there is a certain someone who I kill.

Shikamaru Nara (奈良シカマル, Nara Shikamaru)

  • What a drag...How troublesome...
  • Ugh...It's SHADOW POSSESSION. Get your Jutsu right...
  • [Cloud-watching] The clouds are nice. They're so free.
  • [Thinking about his mother] From the second I wake up, it's nag, nag, nag...
  • I always get stuck fighting women...
  • I was unable to protect my friends. The mission failed. I shouldn't be a shinobi.
  • During an offensive move, the first attack is a fake. It's a basic strategy to use the second attack to end the game.
  • The most interesting thing in the rules of Shogi is that you're able to use the pieces you've captured as your own.
  • In life, nothing good comes out of hurrying.
  • He's so far out of the loop, he doesn't even know there is a loop.
  • It really doesn't matter to me if I ever become a Chunin or not, but I guess I shouldn't let myself be beaten by a female, so let's do it.
  • Sasuke isn't a close friend of mine. I don't even like him. But he is the same as us: a ninja from the Hidden Village of Konoha. He is our comrade. That is why we will put our lives on the line to bring him back. This is the way of Konoha.
  • This is why women are so troublesome...
  • [Thinking as he prepares to sacrifice himself to help Sakura and Naruto escape] Sigh...I used to really want to be just an average ninja making an average living... Marry a regular girl who's not super pretty, or super ugly, have two kids, a girl and then a boy... Retire when my daughter got married and my son successfully became a ninja...and then just spend the rest of my life playing Shogi or Go, a carefree and leisurely retirement...dying of old age before my wife...that's the life I wanted... And yet I ended up exerting unlike me...even though I wanted to reach the end of my life like a regular guy... I had to go and get myself into this tiresome situation...
  • I admit that I'm not a good leader, but I'm good at one thing: believing in my friends.
  • (Thinking about Temari after she kills Tayuya) She's as subtle as a rhino. She might even be scarier than my mom.

Shino Aburame (油女シノ, Aburame Shino)

  • Even if our enemy is a small bug, we will not underestimate it.
  • [After the mission; and seeing him smile and laugh for the first time]THIS NEVER HAPPENED, OK?

Tayuya (多由也)

  • You fool. One little midget, what are you going to do? And also, look what happened. Each time, in order to move forward, you sacrificed one of your members, didn't you? Is that guy Sasuke so precious to you? Just for the sake of one person... how many of your team members are you willing to lose? You mindless worm.
  • Damn it! You tricked me! "Teamwork"? Yeah right! You scum!
  • Maybe you idiots can't handle it, but I can.
  • For an idiot like you, to understand the complexity of the melody is not too bad. But there is no way that you can completely comprehend this song.
  • There isn't anyone who has listened to this song and survived.
  • [To Kimimaro] I don't care if you kill me...all that matters is you'll die, too.
  • You're mine!!
  • [To Jiroubu] Shut the hell up, you fatass!
  • Knowing what I am doing isn't the same as knowing how to stop me!

Temari (テマリ)

  • Hey, you. When did you turn into such a dim-wit?
  • (To Shikamaru) Still babbling about that man and woman crap, as always. Stop acting all tough, idiot.
  • If something else happens, I'll come to help. Is that alright, Mr. Crybaby?
  • Did that clever brain of yours go bad?
  • Oh beat it... and take that sack of garbage with you.
  • Every second counts.
  • My power...isn't to be taken lightly. If that person thinks she's going to hide away while we wait for her to play her flute, she's just too naive!
  • (To Gaara) Gaara...this is your big sister asking you to stop. Please?

Tenten (テンテン)

  • What I'm saying is, in the end, everyone is alone, right?
  • Get yourself together, Lee!
  • It's not because they're girls, you know.
  • I was hoping to save this for a final blow, but...

Third Hokage (三代目火影,Third Hokage (lit. Third Generation Hokage))

  • True strength comes from more than jutsu!
  • I am the Third Hokage, you know.
  • The will of fire. I wonder if you have it young as you are.

Tsunade (綱手)

  • The title of Hokage is a fool's game. Only an idiot becomes one.
  • I told you... From now on... I'm gambling everything, too... I'm putting my life on the line!!
  • The title of "sannin" will have one less holder as of today!
  • Nawaki... Dan... I hope you are watching this. That boy, Naruto... will surely complete what you started.
  • You said that everything eventually decays and fades away...but these feelings...will never cease to exist.

Zabuza Momochi (桃地再不斬, Momochi Zabuza, A.K.A The Demon of the Mist)

  • I,Momochi Zabuza, was called the Demon of the Hidden Village of Mist
  • Ahh, Shadow Clones!? And you've made several thousands.
  • What can you possibly do in this situation? Spit at me?
  • Can you...see my ragged hands?
  • By your age, my hands were already soaked in blood.
  • And once we're in Hell, I can take my time to show you over and over who is or is not a "amateur dish-washer"!
  • You say my future is death...? I've had enough of your bluffs.
  • I warn you, friendship, comfort and encouragement... I do not need these things- nor should you expect them from me.
  • I really did find a treasure in that gutter... To think he'd grant me this marvelous chance in the end!
  • Why...? Why... can't I keep up...? Damn it!!
  • Forgive me... Kakashi... Our fight is over. I no longer have any reason to want to assassinate Tazuna... which settles our differences.
  • You talk too much... And your words... they cut deep... Deeper than any blade...
  • [dying] If possible... I'd like to go to the same... place as you're going to.
  • I'm taking you with me... to HELL!!!
  • [seeing snow falling] Is that you, Haku...? Are you crying...?


  • Damn it! He did it again! My eyes! It burns! This is no ordinary piss, it's a strong acid!
  • Let's tear them to pieces.


  • Genma: When captured birds grow wiser, they try to open the cage with their beaks. They don't give up, because they want to fly again.

  • Kabuto: Mm, she's strong and scary. I bet she's single.

  • Kaiza: Protect whatever is important to you with these two arms, no matter how tough or sad it is, even if it costs you your life.

  • Shizune: Tsunade-sama! Think about Dan and Nawaki! Would they have wanted this? Answer me!


[Naruto, with beads of sweat pouring down his face, nervously turns his head.]

Naruto: [weakly]: It was an accident!! I swear!
Sakura: [shaking with fury] Naruto.... [Cracks her knuckles] YOU MAKE ME SICK!
Naruto: [whispering] Why are you...?

[Soon after, Naruto is seen with smoke rising from his hair, a bruised and swollen face, and scratches all over his body.]

Ino as Kin: I don't understand you guys, what kind of monster would attack their own team mate?
Zaku: I guess, monsters like us.
Dosu: You see, we don't play this game by your rules, it's not the scrolls we're after or even passing this test.
Ino as Kin: What than?
Dosu: Sasuke!

Zaku: I thought for sure that would work. Do you think she saw the paper bomb we put on the squirell?
Dosu: No, that wasn't it.
Zaku: Than what was it, what are you thinking?
Dosu: I'm thinking we need to go closer and find out, so let's get going.

Zaku: Did you really think you could beat us? Face it you ninja are a bunch of hacks!
Dosu: From a second rate village.
Neji: Then I guess your village is third rate.

[Kurenai takes Hinata's pulse]
Kurenai: [thinks] Oh, no. She's going into cardiac arrest. [glares at Neji] Was he really trying to kill her?
Neji: [smugly] I really wouldn't waste your time glaring at me when you really should be taking care of her.

Jiraiya: Stop saying that! I am not a little pervert!
Naruto: Oh, yeah? Then what are you?!
Jiraiya: [Lets out a huge laugh]...I'm a big one.

Naruto: You know, I always thought of you as...
Hinata: [thinking] What? What?
Naruto: A dark, timid and weird person. [Hinata slumps her shoulders in disappointment] But you know, I like people like you... ["people like you" echoes in Hinata's mind]

[Overlooking the Leaf Village after Orochimaru's failed invasion]

Kisame: Looks like the Leaf Village managed to survive, but just barely.
Itachi: ...Not long ago, this village was at the peak of its glory. Look at it now...
Kisame: [scoffs] You sound almost sad. Don't tell me you still have feelings for your old home?
Itachi: No... None.

Kakashi: You're after what lies within Naruto. It's a Kyuubi, isn't it? You're moving, but you're not the only ones who know. The organization was called... Akatsuki, was it not?
Asuma: Akatsuki?
Itachi: Kisame, get rid of Kakashi-san. These people need to disappear.

Kankuro: You're an interesting guy, I like you.
Naruto: You're not interesting, I don't like you.
Kankuro: [Thinking] This brat.... I will kill him!

Fugaku: Stop it, Itachi! What in the world is the matter with you?! Itachi, you've been strange lately.
Itachi: There's nothing strange about me... I have my own duties to fulfill. That's all.
Fugaku: Then why didn't you come last night?
Itachi: To achieve the next state....
Fugaku: What are you saying?
[Itachi draws a kunai and throws it at an Uchiha crest on a nearby wall]
Itachi: I've had enough.... There's no hope for this pathetic clan.

Kimimaro: Without sand, you can't do anything.
Gaara: As long as I have sand, I can do everything.

[Kimimaro and the Sound Four are staring each other down after Orochimaru gives Kimimaro the Earth Seal.]

Kimimaro: Which do you choose? To die... or to obey?
Sakon: Obey... is what you will do!

[They all jump down at Kimimaro, but are easily defeated. Jirobou and Kidomaru collapse.]

Kimimaro: This is all you can do, four against one? I will ask once more. Which do you choose?

[Tayuya and Sakon look at each other and then bow down.]

Kimimaro: Very good. From now on, we're the Sound Five.

Gato: I-if you're in such a hurry... to be reunited with your little friend... go alone!
Zabuza: I... have no intention... of going to the same place... as Haku....
Gato: Wh-what are you babbling about? Ugh....
Zabuza: Heh.... I'm taking you with me... to HELL!! Even an ogre in name only... a washout from Kirigakure village... can become a real demon in how he meets his death. Once we're in Hell, I can take my time, and show you over... and over... who is, or is not, a "baby demon!"

Naruto: I'll crush you!
Kimimaro: You shouldn't make promises you can't keep.
Naruto: Shut up!

Temari: [having just killed Tayuya] Well, it's over....
Shikamaru: What a violent person. She's even scarier than my mom.

Kakashi: [on Haku and Zabuza, seeing through Haku's tracker ninja disguise] They look pretty chummy to me. I'd say they've been pulling scams like that for a long time.
Sakura: He's got some nerve facing us again after a trick like that!
Kakashi: And hiding behind a mask. Who does he think he's fooling?
Sakura: Speak for yourself, Sensei!
Sasuke: That's it. I'm taking him out.
Sakura: Huh?
Sasuke: Who does he think he's fooling, hiding behind that mask like some sort of clown?
Sakura: Sasuke! You're so cool!
Kakashi: [Thinking] Wait a sec, didn't I just say that? She'll never change...

Sakura: Hey Sasuke, when we get back do you want to do something with me?
Sasuke: Uh, I don't think so.
Sakura: Oh....
Naruto: Hey Sakura, I'll do something with you.
Sakura: Hey you, that was a private conversation!

Kakashi: Ninja are not supposed to seek their reason to exist. It's important that they exist as a tool. That idea exists in Konoha, too.
Naruto: Does becoming a real ninja really mean that? I... kind of... don't like that.
Sasuke: [to Kakashi] Do you think so, too?
Kakashi: Well, no. That's why ninja unconsciously suffer from that idea. Like Zabuza and that boy.

Sakura: If you leave, I'll scream!
[Sasuke appears behind Sakura]
Sasuke: Sakura... thank you.
[Sasuke knocks out Sakura]

Sakura: What's wrong?
Naruto: Well, Kurenai-sensei is leaving Team 8, so I'm going to talk to Old lady Tsunade about it.
Sakura: I don't think it would do any good. Probably—
Naruto: It'll be fine! I know where she hides her sake! If I reveal that to Shizune-neechan....

[Temari comes to assist Shikamaru]

Tayuya: Who are you?
Temari: Konoha's allies....

[Kankuro has come to assist Kiba]

Kankuro: The shinobi...

[Gaara has come to aid Lee]

Gaara: Of the sand!

[Temari has come to assist Shikamaru]

Ukon: Who are you guys?
Temari: Konoha's allies....

[Kankuro has come to assist Kiba]

Kankuro: The Sand...

[Gaara has come to assist Lee]

Gaara: Shinobi!

Temari: We owe you a favor now, don't we?
Shikamaru: No, we just repaid you a favor, that's all. We'll do an even better job if something like this ever happens again.
Temari: Well, I'll acknowledge that you did so-so this time.
Shikamaru: There you go again! This is why I hate women!

Might Guy: Its formal jutsu name is Chidori, and its secrets lie in the almost impossible speed of its stroke and the immense chakra focused in the arm that transforms it into a blade that can cut through anything. But... how could you have taught him such a reckless move...?
Kakashi: Like you really have the right to criticize me... [Turns to Rock Lee] Right, Lee?

Naruto: What do you think your comrades in Konoha are?!

[Naruto jumps at Sasuke and punches him.]

Sasuke: ...Comrades? Have I become stronger while staying with those comrades? I'm going to where Orochimaru is.
Naruto: Orochimaru is the one who killed the Third and tried to destroy Konoha! Do you really think he'll give you power for free?! He just wants your body as a container! You might never come back! You might die! There's no way I could just let you go to a place like that!
Sasuke: ...I don't care about that. If I can achieve my objective, then it's all fine. If you're going to get in my way, then I have no choice.
Naruto: You won't be able to. I'm going to take you back, by force if I have to!

Shino: We need to have a good, leisurely talk for a change. This is also part of teamwork. I would like to hear what your mission was like.
Kiba: Well, it sure was something! Though you wouldn't understand it even if I explained it to you. [thinks] I won't let Akamaru go through that ever again. For that, I need to polish my techniques more, and...
Shino: No, I would like to hear about it properly. Because that's what teamwork is all about.
Kiba: Are you sulking because you were left out? [Shino stops walking but says nothing] So you are.

Naruto: There are no bad people among ramen lovers!
Choji: No. That is incorrect, Naruto.
Shikamaru: Tell it the way it is, Choji.
Choji: There are no bad people who like Ichiraku ramen!

Ino:: So that old man Gennou wasn't a bad guy?
Choji: Didn't I say in the very beginning, "Anyone who enjoys eating Ichiraku Ramen can't be a bad guy"?
Ino:: Huh? Didn't that guy actually hate ramen?
Choji: Ichiraku ramen is different.
Shikamaru: It's impossible to eat something you hate very day.
Choji: Exactly!

[Naruto finishes his ramen and sees Gennou's reflection in the remaining soup]

Naruto: It's kinda hard to eat myself. Oh, it's yummy! Hinata, you'll definitely be a good wife someday!
Hinata(thinking): A wife...

Naruto(Talking about Hinata): I never knew Hinata was this incredible...
Rock Lee: She's very similar to you...
Sakura: Oh yeah...she was always watching you.
Naruto: Huh?

Season 4 - EP 81 - Return of the Morning Mist (needs confirmation)

Kisame: Well, who have we here?
Might Guy: The leaf villages fiercest beast of battle, I'm Might Guy!
Kisame: Your Might Guy, huh? Mighty stupid looking Guy!

Sakura: They're insane.
Naruto: Probably.

Baki: Gaara, where are you going?
Gaara: To remind myself I'm alive.

Season 4 - EP 80 - The Third Hokage, Forever... (needs confirmation)

Naruto: It's almost... unbearable, isn't it? The feeling... of being all alone...
Gaara: (Gasps at the sincerity in his voice)
Naruto: I've been there... In that same dark and lonely place... But I've found others... others who accept me for who I am... That's why I will protect them... even if I have to kill you.
Gaara: But why?... Why would you do this... for anyone but yourself?
Naruto: Because... they saved me from myself... They are my friends. They are precious to me...

Season 5 - EP ??? - Vengeful Strike! The Bracken Dance!

After barely winning against Kimimaro
Gaara: It was sheer luck... I should have been killed.
Rock Lee: No, it was not meant to be. My sensei has often said to me: "A good ninja makes his own luck."
Gaara: ...That meddlesome mother hen...
Rock Lee: (offended) Guy-Sensei is nothing of the sort! Yes, he stepped in, but only that once, and only because I was not strong enough. I am very grateful to you for having saved my life, but I warn you, I will not abide of anyone speaking ill of my sensei.
Gaara: So you're another one, eh?
Rock Lee: Hm?
Gaara: You have someone in your life whom you honor and revere so much that every hurt inflicted on them is inflicted on you as well. And the closer they are to you, the greater the pain.
Kimimaro: (memory) --I will live on. I am not alone. A part of me will live on in Lord Orochimaru's heart forever. --He is the the one, the only one who gave my life meaning!! How could YOU ever understand that?!?
Gaara: To feel so strongly for someone you would fight for them... and die for them... You and Naruto Uzumaki have that in common.
Rock Lee: (gasps slightly)
Gaara: However, what if this person you honor and would even die for is not a virtuous person?
Rock Lee: Impossible! Such a person would be unworthy of honor or respect.
Gaara: No... Perhaps the companionship of an evil person... is preferable to loneliness...
