Naruto is a show that has over seven hundred episodes, movies, OVAs (Original Video Animations), games and many more. With such a huge number of episodes and other content, an overwhelming character cast is sure to follow. One of the things that makes the Naruto series what it is today is the rich variety of characters with unique abilities that the show has. From controlling your shadows to controlling your mind, this show has characters that specialize in everything. While it gives more screen time to the main characters, it also makes sure that the other characters are given attention as well.
When Kishimoto created Naruto characters, he made sure to reflect each character’s personality with the outfits they wore. Each character serves a purpose in the bigger picture and each character belongs to a clan. Some clans are famous for their techniques, some for their enormous chakra pool, all of which contributes to the rich roster of characters in Naruto.
The specialities of the characters in Naruto are not just the abilities of this generation, but also generations from the past. The anime has characters from way past the first chakra bearers were born. It also has a world that is built around the characters who utilize chakra, but each character can not be unique when all the characters rely on the same techniques.
They have this covered as well, as the use of Taijutsu is something that does not require chakra, but just intense physical training. It pushes the limit of the human body to achieve what sometimes even Ninjutsu can not.
The unique roster of characters that the show provides lets us pick favorites apart from the main character, Naruto Uzumaki. With each character having a story of their own and an identity of their own, Naruto fans have been blessed with a huge collection of characters. Interestingly, throughout the course of the Naruto series, like the main character, Naruto Uzumaki, other characters also embark on their own journey and learn about life and the world they live in, in their own way. Every character has an identity, a perspective, a journey of their own which makes the Naruto series exceptional and able to grasp the emotions of its audiences.
When all is said and done, Naruto is not just an anime or manga series, it is an emotion that keeps its fans connected to the storyline and to the Naruto world itself. The character cast is one of the major reasons why the series is so popular all over the globe.
