About Naruto Uzumaki

Naruto Uzumaki - The Jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails

Naruto Uzumaki is the eponymous protagonist of Naruto, a manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. Naruto is a young ninja from the fictional village of Konohagakure who has a malevolent Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed inside his body. He is a shinobi of Konohagakure's Uzumaki clan and became the jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails on the day of his birth. This fate caused him to be shunned by most of Konoha throughout his childhood but his carefree, optimistic and boisterous personality allowed him to befriend other Konohagakure ninja, as well as ninja from other villages. Naruto appears in the series' films and in other media related to the franchise, including video games and original video animations (OVA), as well as the sequel Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, where his son, Boruto Uzumaki, is the protagonist.

Naruto was born on the night of October 10th to Minato Namikaze (the Fourth Hokage) and Kushina Uzumaki (the second jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails). He was named after Naruto Musasabi, the protagonist of Jiraiya's first book, which made the Sannin his godfather. The Third Hokage made special arrangements for Minato to preserve Kushina's seal containing the Nine-Tails while she gave birth to Naruto in a remote location, escorted by midwives and Anbu. However, a masked man named Tobi tracked down their location, killed the midwives and Anbu, and captured Naruto. Luckily Minato quickly rescued him and took him to a safe house.

After joining Team Kakashi, Naruto worked hard to gain the village's acknowledgement all the while chasing his dream to become Hokage. In the following years, through many hardships and ordeals, he became a capable ninja regarded as a hero both by the villagers and, soon after, the rest of the world. He became known as the Hero of the Hidden Leaf. He soon proved to be one of the main factors in winning the Fourth Shinobi World War, leading him to achieve his dream and become the village's Seventh Hokage.
