Naruto is an anime that is totally worth watching. It has a lot awesome and great moments, touching backstories of characters, even villains has a touching backstory and amazing character development. Let’s not forget fillers. :p
I have made a list of 12 Naruto characters and their backstories that’ll definitely make you cry. This list is based on my own thoughts, if you have any opinion, please comment below!
12. Minato Namikaze & Kushina Uzumaki
Minato & Kushina suffered a lot, just in a short amount of time. Right after Naruto was born they sacrificed their lives, also it must have been very hard for a parent to seal a tailed beast inside his new born baby and to see how many hard ships Naruto had to face as a kid.
When Sasori was young, his father and mother were killed by Sakumo Hatake in battle, leaving him in the care of his grandmother, Chiyo.
She taught him puppetry at age of five and his skills even allowed him to create two puppets in the image of his parents in an attempt to discard the terrible loneliness he felt. However, as the puppets were unable to give him the real parental love that he desired.
10. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto has no idea who he was or where he was from, he had no family, no friends and he was all alone, later he was taken care of by Nono, she truly cared for him and gave him mother’s love. And as he grew up a bit he was sent on a mission for 5 years as a root shinobi. In that time, Nono was double crossed by Danzo into believing that the Kabuto is captured in root and they would release him from Root, in exchange for her assassinating another person, who in actuality was to be the real Kabuto himself.
As such they began a long and slow process of brainwashing Nono showing her pictures of Kabuto growing up and eventually switching him with a entirely different person so that when she was given the mission to assassinate the real Kabuto Yakushi, she would not recognize him and later when Nono attacked him, she was critically wounded as a result of Kabuto’s chakra scalpel, and the panicking Kabuto tried to treat her, but Nono no longer recognized him, which shocked the young man and prompted him to runaway without knowing the reason that, why his adpotive mother Nono tried to kill him.
Kimimaro was a rare possessor of his clan’s Shikotsumyaku kekkei genkai, the clan patriarch feared Kimimaro’s abilities, so at the very young age the clan had him locked up in a cage unless needed for battle.
The Kaguya clan was wiped out when they attacked Kirigakure, for no reason other than the desire to kill and show off their power.
Having underestimated their opponents’ defences, they were slaughtered, with Kimimaro the sole survivor. Wandering soon after sometime, Kimimaro was eventually found by Orochimaru, and recruited as one of his most loyal ninja.
8. Neji Hyuga
Neji had a pretty sad childhood, he had to see his father killed to protect the main branch family. At very young age, he had curse seal himself that the branch family could kill him anytime by destroying his brain cells and the curse seal is only removed upon his death.
When Haku’s father discovered that his wife and child possessed a kekkei genkai, he assembled a small mob of villagers.
With tears flowing down his eyes, he killed his wife in front of Haku. And he then attempted to kill Haku. But before he could, Haku used his Ice Release to create several large ice spikes to kill his father and the rest of the mob.
He was orphaned, And he became a child who was wanted by no one in the village and was forced to take to the cold streets at night and find food scarpes through trash bins, even sometimes having to fight off the wild dogs that roamed the streets at night.
Later he met Zabuza and he was asked to be his weapon and Haku accepted his role.
Nagato saw his parents murdered right in front of his eyes, later when he grew up, his friend Konan was held captive, Nagato was forced to kill his best friend Yahiko. He had pretty sad story as well.
5. Sasuke Uchiha
Many people don’t like Sasuke for being a d*ck but that’s not it. His Mother, Father and rest of his clan was murdered in front of his eyes by his beloved brother Itachi, he lived his life in order to achieve power and take revenge for his clan. When he finally faced his brother, and after his brother died, he later got to know that everything his brother had done, that was to protect him and to stop Uchiha Clan’s Coup d’etat.
Kakashi’s mother died when he was born, his father commited suicide, his friend was killed saving him[not really killed but he lived his half life believing that he was the reason his friend was killed] and made him promise to protect his other friend, Rin. Who was later killed with Kakashi’s chidori but well it wasn’t Kakashi’s fault. And the top of it his teacher died too.
3. Naruto Uzumaki
We all know his story, and even when Naruto was a kid he was hated by whole village and was called a monster.
Specially this scene really breaks my heart..
Gaara was blamed for the loss of his mother, his father hated him and saw him as a failure, his siblings feared him and Gaara was left alone.
He had no friends, no family of sorts and the only person whom he believed loved him tried to kill him and Gaara ended up killing him while trying to defend himself. On top of all that he has had to carry the burden of the sand spirit Shukaku all his life, making him hated and feared through no fault of his own.
1. Itachi Uchiha
He sacrificed his everything in order to protect his little brother and his village, he had to kill his parents, kill his clan and yes even his girl friend, he put her in a genjutsu, showed her that they had cute kids together, had a happy life and later she died of old age, Itachi didn’t make her suffer.
His best friend, more like a brother, Shisui Uchiha sacrificed his life right in front of his eyes and he couldn’t do anything to save him.
Itachi was hated by whole village that he protected and his beloved little brother Sasuke, who he valued most. His brother tried to kill him but even when he died, he didn’t tell Sasuke a thing about his sacrifice.
ITACHI WAS TRULY A LEGEND.
