A fun loving instructor of the Konoha ninja academy, he is an orphan just like Naruto. Even though his parents died when Kyuubi ambushed Konoha, he still does not bare any hatred for Naruto. Iruka, with a lack of attention in his own childhood, turned into a prankster (just like Naruto). Initially, Iruka found it uncomfortable to teach Naruto as the beast inside of him is the one who killed his family. Kakashi, his former mission commander, encouraged him to continue teaching Naruto. After the whole incident of Iruka saving Naruto in the woods, iruka decided that he wanted to continue teaching Naruto and he thanked the Third Hokage for such a student.
As an instructor at Ninja academy, Iruka is skilled in almost all skills. He has displayed knowledge of genjutsu, when he mimicked Rain Ninja. Also, he displayed a knowledge of taijutsu.

A chuunin level kunoichi of Konohagakure, a medical-nin, and a member of team Kakashi. As a child, Sakura was constantly bullied by her peers due to her large forehead (she was called Billboard Brow). Ino helped Sakura triumph over her insecurities by giving her a ribbon to tie in her hair. It was then that they became best of friends. Once Sakura found out that Ino had a crush on Sasuke also, Sakura ended the friendship and began a bitter rivalry between the two. Sakura attempted to stop Sasuke from abandoning the village, but he left anyway. Since then, Sakura had made it her personal goal to bring Sasuke back to the village. >,<

Shikamaru is a real smart-ass shinobi. however, his habitual complains never seem to reduce. he was signed for his first mission as chuunin to retrieve Sasuke. leading a team of 5 shinobi including himself, Naruto, Neji, Kiba, and Chouji. undoubtedly he has the best brainpower that no one can beats. he always sees a battle as if he was playing his fave game, Shougi. after the death of Asuma-sensei, Shikamaru is taken over his team and led em for a revenge attack on Hidan and Kakuzu. Shikamaru's weak point is, most likely, girls ^^" yet he seems to get along pretty well with Temari.

to be honest i never really pay attention to this kid before, but as i read the moving chapter of his life-threatening battle with Jiroubou/strong>, i found out that actually he's a very kind-hearted and loving person Y_Y. Chouji is Shikamaru's best friend, it's amazing to see how they can get along. just like another Akimichi clan members, Chouji inherited the skill to multi size his body, Baika. but to do this jutsu he needs a lot of calories, that's why he snacks all the time. in the Part 2, Chouji comes out again with his super-cool outfit, and he's no longer a weak fatass.

Sakura's no.1 rival, both in skill and love. just like another Sasuke fans, Ino loves seeking for Sasuke's attention. the Yamanaka clan has a hiden which enables them to infiltrate someone's mind and taken control the body. Ino returned in Part 2 with a new sexy costume *drools*
Rock Lee (Konoha no Utsukushiki Aoi Yajuu)
Age : 16 (Nov 27)
our drunken master ^o^. Rock Lee is as appealing as his sensei, Maito Gai, since he admires Gai more than anyone else. he and Naruto once became a rival since they fell in love with a same girl, Sakura. unfortunately, Sakura doesn't seem to love anyone of them, hence they share the same feeling ^ ^. Gaara once put him in a deep crisis but Gaara helped him in his return when Lee fought Kimimaro. now Rock Lee is no longer being underestimated by his team mate, Neji, they even get along quite well. in the Part 2, the Gai team are back again to pursue Akatsuki.

Ten Ten is probably the least talked-about character in Naruto. she is often seen practicing with Neji and known to be the best in weaponry. in the Part 2, Ten Ten comes out with her comrades to back up Kakashi's team.

probably one and only girl who can sees Naruto's true self (same as me ^^). this shy and awkward kunoichi loves Naruto for his flamed-spirit and ignorant will-to-surpass anyone. though Naruto seems unable to notice it, he fought Neji for her sake. Hinata is the first child of Hyuuga main family but she has less skill than her lil sister, Hanabi. however, Naruto encouraged her not to give up easily against destiny. as you can see, the grown up Hinata has a long hair and fine dress.

yeah, my inu (dog) comrade has come! Kiba is a member of the Inuzuka family clan who's famed for using dogs as their assists (dog is men's best friend, right?). Kiba has a ninken named Akamaru. both can transform into a huge two-headed wolf beast called Soutourou. surprisingly in the Part 2, Akamaru has grown up so big (real BIG) that even Kiba could ride on him!

the most mysterious shinobi, rarely talks and always wears sunglasses. as a son of Aburame clan he also uses bugs as his weapon, a hiden called Kikaichuu. he lets the bugs live inside his body and feeds them with his chakra. Shino appears again in the Part 2 with more mysterious outfit and behavior, that makes Naruto could hardly recognize him.
