Did you know that Naruto has killed his opponents more than once? You’d be surprised, but Naruto hasn’t killed many fewer people than Sasuke. I wonder how many there were and who they were?
Read to the end, I’ll refresh your memory and maybe for some I’ll reveal the plot point of Naruto’s battle from the other, darker, side. Well, let’s get started.
I’ll point out right away that even if Naruto was killing a shitload of people, he’d still be doing his usual shinobi task. To be more precise, one of the ninja’s duties is eliminating targets. But Naruto didn’t kill them that way on purpose. Though it’s debatable too. When you charge a giant rasengan or rasen shuriken into a person and don’t know what thoughts might have.
In any case, I present to you the five shinobi Naruto killed throughout the whole Naruto anime. We don’t take the manga, because some moments are taken from the fillers and the movie for a variety of pictures.
As for Sasuke, he has almost never killed anyone. His enemies died for various other reasons, and Sasuke has also been found to be quite vicious. In fact, there are also other reasons for that on the blog, and I’ll make a separate blog post about that as well. Now let’s begin.
Rokusho Aoi Death
We’ll start from the very beginning, namely the first season. The only one he killed there, by the way, was Rokusho Aoi. And that, in case anyone has forgotten, is a character from the time competition fillers.
Naruto and the team were tasked with protecting one of the runners from enemy attacks. A former leaf dweller and Ibiki’s younger brother so that no one would stop him from winning. So Naruto just happened to kill the very same Rokusho class that wanted to get rid of our runner Morino. Aoi fights Naruto and Sasuke alone. Thanks to the Hokage’s thundering sword, he’s able to overpower them quite a bit. But nevertheless Naruto uses the rasengan to destroy his sword, which had previously damaged Sasuke with chidori. Aoi, of course, dies falling headfirst off a cliff into a mountain river.
Some may think he may have survived. But officially he died after that fall.
Next comes Yura out of the sand. Some may now think when did Naruto kill the sand dweller?
Well, with the Akatsuki technique he was introduced as Itachi Uchiha and fought against Kakashi’s team and Grandma Chiyo. This is the canonical moment when Naruto and the guys went to the Akatsuki’s hideout to free and rescue Gaara from them kidnapped as Shukaku jinchuuriki. Even though Naruto didn’t know who was really fighting them, it didn’t stop him from finishing off his opponent with a rasengan large straight shot. The odds of surviving are practically nil. Which was proven by Yura’s corpse.
Now we’re going to talk about women as well. Yes yes, Naruto has killed women as well. I’m talking about Fuuka, of course. The same girl who was the only one who kissed Naruto besides Sasuke before marrying Hinata.
These were the events of the arch with Sora. In case anyone doesn’t remember this particular guy with Kurama’s chakra. Naruto, wondering why she cares about her hair so much more than her body wounds, guesses Fuuka weakness and rips her hair off. After that her body withers away leaving behind only the hair that encapsulates her soul. Naruto uses the rasengan to attack her hair and thus destroy the soul inside. Fuuka then dies.
And how not to talk about Akatsuki, Naruto’s main nemeses throughout Shippuden and up to the appearance of Kaguya. And we’re going to talk about Kakuzu.
After learning the incredibly powerful and murderous reengan technique, Naruto decides to try it out on an Akatsuki-level opponent. For if he defeats him, the technique can be considered truly atrocious. Although Naruto failed to kill him, he definitely destroyed a few hearts. In other words Kakuza was only saved by a unique body with multiple hearts. It was Kakashi, of course, who finished him off. But I can safely attribute that to Naruto as well.
For a complete change of picture, let’s also take Hiruko from the Naruto movie. This is the same shinobi who collected all the strongest genomes and also wanted to take Kakashi’s eye. I think everyone’s seen the movie. And if not, run and watch it, it’s very interesting, you won’t regret it.
Aside from his powerful genomes, Naruto uses the same rasengan weapon as in the previous one, only times more powerful, to inferiorly destroy Hiruko’s entire body with small needles, which, of course, lead to his death.
This is the end of the characters Naruto has finished. The main reason for this is that Naruto is not allowed to kill any of them, except for the countless white Zetsu and Nagato, whom he drove to his own death. It’s also not a fact that those stray biju bomb shots didn’t accidentally hit a populated area where they obliterated all life. So that’s the end of it.
But seriously Naruto is a very kind and funny character, who can only teach us good things. In his first appearance in the series, he was shown to be a kind and jovial character, capable of teaching us only good things about himself. Write your recollections or favorites in the comments.
