Not only do they train the characters to be more powerful shinobi, they can also play a major role in taking the story forward.

10 powerful mentor-student duos in Naruto, ranked
The fourth kazekage, Gaara's adoptive son, Shinki, is also one of his students. Gaara first encounters Shinki as a young child with uncontrolled magnetic abilities. He decides to teach him how to correctly use his jutsu as Shinki reminds him of his own early experiences, in which he suffered alone with unrestrained abilities.
Gaara can assist him since Shinki can control metal, just like the Third Kazekage. They make the ideal team since Gaara's expertise complements Shinki's skills.
Gaara also wants Shinki to make friends because he does not want Shinki to repeat the mistake he made when he was younger. Shinki is a reclusive person, like his mentor was.
Bruto is one of the most gifted ninjas of the present day, and in comparison to Naruto when he was younger, he has demonstrated significant growth in his abilities. This is in part because Boruto really respects and sincerely desires to learn from his father's best friend and former competitor.
Being the unique teacher that he is, Sasuke helps Boruto learn techniques like the rasengan, which he can then combine with his jogan to produce techniques like the invisible rasengan.
Even though his father is still well and living, Broruto feels a distance from him since he is constantly preoccupied with his hokage responsibilities. Sasuke therefore acts as a father figure for Boruto when Naruto is unavailable and helps him see his relationship with Naruto from a different angle, both of which provide emotional support for Boruto.
The name Uchiha has long been connected to Madara, who went on to become one of the series' primary villains. In the wake of a near-fatal mission, Obito meets Madara who prepares him to continue his heritage and establish the ideal Ninja universe.
Obito refers to Madara as his treasured forefather when he first meets him. While they're not a typical student-teacher duo, Madara helps Obito recover from being smashed by a boulder and successfully brainwashes him into supporting him in his plot.
7) Orochimaru- Sasuke
Orochimaru had the wrong motives when he accepted Sasuke as a pupil. In order for Sasuke to grow more powerful than Naruto and become capable of defeating Itachi, he required more strength. It didn't matter if he had to leave his home village in order to get such power. Orochimaru made an attempt to exploit Sasuke's passion to his advantage and seized control of his body. By keeping his vow to give Sasuke that power, he fulfilled his obligation.
There is no doubt that Orochimaru made him much more powerful than any of the teachers at Hidden Leaf would have ever been able to. He went from being powerless to encasing Orochimaru in his body and sealing him away. Even though Orochimaru was weak, he was still capable of defeating Chunins easily. At first, it was all about Sasuke giving Orochimaru power and his body, but that changed with time.
Tsunade served as Sakura's tutor in the same way Jiraya served as Naruto's. Tsunade taught Sakura how to fight like her and utilize medical ninjutsu. They share a strong bond as mentor and student.
Tsunade has to be quite proud of Sakura, given that she is so far the only person to achieve Tsunade's degree of skill as a medical-ninja.
Tobirama Senju, one of Hiruzen's teachers, selected him as the third Hokage after Hiruzen had personified the Will of Fire. As it turned out, Tobirama died during the First Ninja War. He proclaimed his successor before dying to ensure that Hiruzen Sarutobi would be able to go.
Minato Namikaze was chosen as Hiruzen Sarutobi's successor in a similar method as the narrative progressed.
Kakashi, like Naruto Uzumaki, started his journey as a Genin himself. In those days, Minato Namikaze, the Fourth Hokage and the father of Naruto, trained Kakashi, who would later meet Obito Uchiha and Rin Nohara in Team Minato where he was a reserved member.
Kakashi learned the importance of team spirit and commitment under Minato's tutelage. Kakashi alone passed the Chunin Exams and was subsequently promoted to Jonin for his outstanding performance.
Mentored by the stupendous Asuma himself, Shikamaru is a lazy genius. They share an odd, amusing, and heartfelt friendship, that slowly developed from their original teacher-student relationship.
They care about each other and feel comfortable enough to rely on and trust one another. In Shogi, Asuma is a worthy opponent for Shikamaru, who, however, has never been beaten by Asuma. Shikamaru has always looked up to Asuma as a father figure.
2) Guy-Rock Lee
Although Rock Lee isn't Guy's biological child, he is a more complete and well-rounded replica of Guy. It's no secret that Rock Lee, like Might Guy, had no experience with chakra.
As a result, he was unable to use Ninjutsu, a key weapon in any shinobi's armory. Since Might Guy was also a Taijutsu expert, Lee respected him and aspired to become like his master one day.
Naruto's godfather Jiraiya has a special affinity towards him. Jiraiya's feelings for Naruto were initially mixed when he learned that the latter might be the kid of prophecy, the one who would rescue the world. He subsequently took on the role of Naruto's mentor and attempted to guide him in the right direction.
They share many characteristics. Both of them want to bring peace to the world and harbor unrequited love for their female colleagues. Naruto regarded Jiraiya with great reverence, but refrained from showing it directly.
The mentor-student connections in Naruto are crucial to the characters' personal growth, expansion, and psychological experiences. These connections are beneficial to the plot as well as the readers' understanding of the characters' motivations, which in turn helps the creator shape the futures of the young shinobi. The show demonstrates the value of mentors and their ability to calm their students' minds under challenging circumstances.
