The family crests of Naruto

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. Jiraiya who have taught Naruto Ninjutsu have said, the direction of Naruto’s CKL is right-handed rotation and it is same as his family crests.

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.

Seven genius Ninja in Naruto

Hatake Kakashi

Hatake Kakashi

The upgrade speed of Kakashi is surprising, just the aspect could prove he is a genius. He has too may mysterious, such as his real appearance under the mask, why he always late for several hours, and the story about his left eye…… in short, Kakashi usually use his unmeaning attitude to conceal his hard history. He bear so many things, as the first technician of Konohagakure, he is deserved.

Shikamaru Nara

Shikamaru Nara

Shikamaru Nara deserved to be a genius as his IQ is 200. In my thoughts, Shilamaru is a man who understands life and enjoys life. There are so many people who fall into the desire and till drowned, someone say the tidemark of life is Lhitachi, Shikamaru is the best one who do this. Shikamaru want to live a ordinary life, but Athena give him a superior IQ, so he have no other way. He said he envy cloud, actually Shikamaru like a cloud which could not control himself, and as a Ninja, his philosophy of life seems incompatible to others.

Naruto Uzumaki

Naruto Uzumaki

Set Naruto as genius, maybe there have some people did not think so, Naruto always the last of his class. However, I think be last not mean anything, there have so many great men are not good at their study. Why Naruto is the genius, mostly is for his powerful explosive force in a time of emergency. When Naruto enter into fighting, he become a founder of miracle.

Sasuke Uchiha

Sasuke Uchiha

All his clansman of Sasuke have been killed by his brother, bear such a deep hatred, he arouse himself to become stronger. Maybe to Sasuke, to be a genius is logical, as a avenger, he need to be hematocryal. In this anime, when we saw Sasuke become lonelier and lonelier, we always fell sorry and heart break for him. Compare with revenge, there have many other things could do, we really hope Sasuke could come back.

Hyuga Neji

Hyuga Neji

Hyuga family is the famous house of Konohagakure, who is luck to be born in this family. Hyuga Neji inherit the best Kekkei genkai, but he was born in branch of family, and the Hinata is an unlikely figure, we could not help plaint, it is fate.

Yakushi Kabuto

Yakushi Kabuto

The feeling Yakushi Kabuto gives us is he is a genius, I don’t know how to describe him, he is good at every aspect. His lot is more mysterious than Kakashi, I have thought they are brothers, and till know I hope so. However, he follows Orochimaru, he should be the elite Ninja of Konohagakure.

Orochimaru

Orochimaru

As the biggest villain of Naruto, Orochimaru is no doubt a genius. He is a ambitious man and usually someone who is ambitious are always also powerful. He never make light of others and could not ignore others. His strength is his ambitious, we do not know what should he benefit if he destroys Konohagakure, but just in his strength, he is very powerful.

The compare of Naruto and Sasuke in five aspects

Naruto & Sasuke

In NarutoNaruto Uzumaki and Uchiha Sasuke are good friends, both them are the popular character, although Naruto was always ranked last at his childhood, he also grow into a excellent Ninja, so there is someone like to do contrast for them. I think it is funny, so i also contrast them in five aspects. If you have any other thoughts, please leave messages to me.

1 The comparison of Chakra

2 The comparison of skill in fighting

3 The comparison of IQ

4 The comparison of character

5 The comparison of favor in the eyes of author

Chakra mentally divided into 2 attributes, quality and properties. Naruto have a quality advantage on Sasuke, I think in this point, there must no doubt. In the past analysis posts, the author alays said the Chakra of Sasuke is little, i think the result is compared with Naruto, after all, compared with most of others, Sasuke have more advantages. And then from the properties of Chakra, at first, the author Kishimoto have said, the wind attribute is rare, and it is benefit fight; so from the beginning, these words have decided the superiority of Naruto‘s Chakra. And then, at the fighting between Sasuke and Orochimaru, Orochimaru give a good evaluation of Sasuke,” I have never seen such attribute Chakra.” And later, according to different fightings of Sasuke, we could found his Chakra attribute is also very sharp as Naruto‘s, so in this aspect, they draw.

In the skill of fight: Sasuke’s combat skills are no doubt very good, sensitive reaction, sober analysis, and his ability to make immediate response, I think maybe all the good words about fighting could used in Sasuke. Naruto always break out in the nick of time, such as in his Genin examination and the fighting with Neji.

In IQ, I think in this aspect, we needn’t talk to much, the IQ of Naruto is very common, and the author have been the intention. If Naruto is a genius, we may hardly image his excellent expression in emergencies. Or maybe this anime want to indicate “even the ordinary person could save the world”.

In character, both Naruto and Sakuke are the orphan, however, their characters are two extreme, Naruto represent love and Sasuke represent hate, the different character decided their different way, the story goes around these two plotlines. Although we guess finally Masashi would select love from our common sense, the excellent story and the result of Sasuke also attract us.

At last, which one Masashi Kishimoto love better between Naruto and Sasuke? This is also one topic we have to discuss. When Naturo and Sasuke fight with monster together, the scene most occurred are the Sasuke confront the monster, and after he was defeated, Naruto would change to super Saiyan by the strength of Ninetales. I think this maybe to balance the difference of them in all kinds of ability. In general, as Sasuke become a avenger, his fans is less, after all, his character is not the main stream in the world.
