Such was Naruto’s harsh childhood.
We all know the protagonist of the Naruto series. A really charismatic ninja with a somewhat complicated childhood, yes, we are indeed talking about Naruto Uzumaki. As those of you who are fans of the series know, Naruto was born as a normal child, he did not have great ninja skills like the other children in his town; The Hidden Villa of the Leaf.
Despite this, he did have some strong ideals and a very clear goal: Naruto wants to become the best Hokage of his Villa. And of course, everyone will know his name. But every great story has a beginning, so if you’re interested in finding out a little more about Naruto’s past, this is the time. Stay with us to discover the difficult path of him.
This was the complicated childhood of Naruto
As we mentioned before, Naruto is not born with an innate talent for the ninja arts, something that seems to strongly condition the goal of becoming Hokage (the head of the Village).. All this begins a story full of challenges and overcoming, not only because of everything he will have to learn, but also because of everything he has to overcome.
Initially, Naruto is presented as a mischievous character who does not stop causing trouble. Although this may lead you to think that he is an annoying person, deep down he is not. Rather, what Naruto seeks is attention. Our beloved protagonist grows up without the two pillars in the life of a child, his parents. They die when he was still a child and from there, an unforgettable adventure begins.
All this led to Naruto being quite hated by the people of his town, although it is a behavior that can be expected from any child, Naruto was special. There was something inside of him that caused fear and respect, something that added to his attitude made him a disowned person.. Yes, inside his body was sealed a great beast, The Nine-Tailed Fox, “Kyubi”, also known as Kurama.
This beast once attacked the Hidden Leaf Village, leaving behind a great destruction and deaths. That’s why people always marginalized our protagonist, something that forged the character of our character. Naruto grew up knowing loneliness first hand, which is why during the series we can see him empathize with more solitary characters such as Gaara or Sasuke.
Naruto could have been a villain, but he was clear on his path
We all agree that if Naruto had grown up with hate and rage within his heart… We would have fully understood. However, our ninja preferred to empathize more with people and change his life for the better. Although he was always pushed aside and hated, he was also He had people who really loved him, like Iruka, who was Naruto’s salvation.
But… How did he get to that situation? How did the Nine Tailed Fox get inside Naruto? Well, curiously this happened the day he was born, his mother died and his father, the Fourth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village did everything possible to protect him. Besides that, it was Minato who sealed the Kyubi inside his son, he knew that Naruto could perfectly control that power, that’s why he entrusted it to him.
Although this is what brought all the feelings of hatred and fear towards him, Naruto has always had some support that was always by his side. In fact, thanks to his carefree and empathetic character, Naruto managed to make friends with many people who ended up taking the affection he deserves from him.
In fact, our protagonist even managed to gain the trust of the Nine-Tailed Fox, a beast that was full of hate. And not only that, but he also managed to forge a great bond with Kurama. There we can see that Naruto’s personality is incredibly attractive, not only because of his eagerness to protect people or his hard work, but also because of the empathy he feels towards other people.
As we told you at the beginning of the news, Naruto doesn’t seem to be a really skilled ninja in combat, which is why many times his enemies end up underestimating him. But it is due to his hard-working character and thanks to the dream of becoming a great Hokage that Naruto always ends up standing out from the rest. Hard work often beats talent and this time we can see it many times.
