The word of family crests comes from the ancient Japan (the Japanese wordかもん), it is used to show the family’s genealogy, blood relationship and position. It is usually made as badge, by report, it is first appeared in later Peace times, and till now, it have 900 years. At that time, the noble selected their favorite pattern among the pop designs for show their position and extraction. And as time going, these pattern have become the sign of that family, this is the origination of family crests. As the development of social, the family crests have increasing popularity, and the range is wider and wider. In the anime Naruto, the family crests have been widely used. From Naruto to Sasuke, from Konohagakure to Iwagakure, they all have their own family crests. Today, we will talk about the family crests in Naruto.

Konohagakure crests

This is the Konohagakure crests, the sign is very common in this anime, and we needn’t talk much about it. Just from the patter, it is the combination of the annual ring and leaf, it is very vivid.

Uzumaki family

うずまき means vortex, it is the family crests of Uzumaki family, actually, the name of Naruto Uzumaki comes from the famous scenic spots naruto. The badge of Naruto is this vortex pattern.

Namikaze Minato, Ninetales

The Ninja uniforms of Konohagakure have the spiral pattern on two shoulders and back, and it is similar to Naruto’s family crests. Date from its origin, we could found there have this pattern from 4th Hokage in Kakashi Gaiden, it is the family crests or any other patters?

Itachi family

The combination of circular fan and the Shuriken is the sign of Konohagakure Guard, the uniform of Guards all have this pattern, so from the memory of Sasuke, there full of the circular fan pattern at the Itachi family.

Haruno family

As the hero of this anime, the family crests of Sakura have not introduced in this anime, we could see her family crests from her clothes, it is a white circle and pink background, maybe the Haruno family is not very famous of this anime, so it is not talked to much of it.

Nara family

The family crest of Nara family is very simple, it seems like the sign of No Passing, and we could found it from Shikamaru.

Hyuga family

Hyuga family is also a blue blood of Naruto, it is one of the oldest family in Konohagakure, and one of its branch have evolved to the  Itachi family, Hyuga family have divided into two parts, one is imperial clan of Hyuga, it is the real successor of Hyuga family, such as Hyuga Hiashi, Hyuga Hinata come from imperial clan of Hyuga; the other one is the branch of Hyuga, such as Hyuga Neji, Hyuga Hizashi.

Who is the true face of Tobi?

This weekend, there is one topic is very popular, “who is the true face of Tobi?” Many fans have made them guess in all kinds of forums, today, I will summarize and talk about my opinions. At first, I want to talk about all the possibilities of Tobi, and then do an analysis.

Uchiha Obito

1 Uchiha Obito: 10%; I think why he should not the Tobi is cause his fatal trauma, Obito is only 10 years old when Tobi fight with 4th Hokage, the possibility is very little. The heights are not likely, only if he have some opportunity to promote his strength quickly, and he have to call out Nine-tails. So I think the possibility of Obito is only 10%.

Uchiha Izuna

2 Uchiha Izuna: he is the little brother of Uchiha Madara. He is one mysterious, I think his possibility is biggest, could achieve 50%. Why I said this? Please think who will to dedicate his eyes, even if the brother might be do this. If only one eye, maybe he will to do, but two eyes. Currently, Tobi changes all kinds of eyes, if it could explain that Tobi have no eyes? If the result is Tobi don’t have eyes, I think the possibility that Tobi is Izuna is very high. And in other way,as the idiomatic ways of author who usually set a person as the boss which live in the same time of Madara. In addition to this, Tobi know the condition of Konohagakure, and can in and out of the  Konohagakure freely, even could conjure Nine-tails, have agreement with Uchiha Madara, the most possible is his little brother. And Tobi have to achieve the dream of Madara — Eye of the moon plan, it is his way to understand the world.

Uchiha Madara

3 The Dissociative Identity of Uchiha Madara: 10%. We know the Dissociative Identity Disorder usually divide into different characters, and the diversity ratio usually very big. And Tobi and Uchiha Madara seem too similar, so the possibilities have reduced. And the real Madara have said, he has known Tobi, and they have make some agreements, if this is her divided character, he should not say these. However, we could know from the attitude of Madara, the real Madara and Tobi are living in the same time.

Ten-tails

4 The strength of Ten-tails: 10%. Ten-tail leave his last spirit strength to the body of Sage of the Six Paths for revive finally, and when Sage of the Six Paths have died, this spirit strength have grown by itself, and become the Tobi. At the beginning, he did not have many power, as his strength have been seal by Sage of the Six Paths, he have to finish his plan though others, and gain strength unceasingly. And why the possibility is only 10%, I think the legend can only be a legend.

1st hokage

5 Son of 1st Hokage: 10%. The son of 1st Hokage, as some psychological factors, he went to the dark world. In my eyes, this possibility is exist, however, if his son become bad, even the 1st Hokage didn’t know, how about the second and the third? If they all don’t know, how would Madara know? And who is the 1st Hokage, he could not know the condition of his son? Moreover, the son of 1st Hokage was born after Madara have died, how could him gang up with Madara?

6 Unknown person: 10%. We know till now, the story has run to the later period, the author would not to set a unknown person as a big boss. And Tobi want to let Sasuke know, they are both come from the Uchiha family, so a unknown person is unlikely be the Tobi.
