Asuma Sarutobi from Naruto

In Naruto, Asuma Sarutobi is a well known member of the Sarutobi clan and a former member of the Twelve Guardian Ninja.  He is also the husband of Kurenai Yuhi and father of her child.  As the leader of Team 10, Asuma is responsible for teaching and training Shikamaru Nara, Ino Yamanaka, and Choji Akimichi.  Asuma is a smoker who is never seen without his trusty lighter.  His wind-based ninjutsu techniques are made all the more lethal with the use of chakra blades.

Madara Uchiha from Naruto Shippuden

Madara Uchiha was one of the founders of Konohagakure. Madara saved and trained Obito Uchiha, and entrusted the latter with his plans and his name upon his eventual death, leading to Obito using the name Madara throughout much of his life. Madara wears a cowl neck robe and shinobi pants, with red samurai armor over top. Finding red armor can be difficult, so using red paint over light colored armor can help you achieve the same look.

might guy from naruto

Might Guy from Naruto

Might Guy is one of the Leaf Village’s most elite jonin.  A taijutsu master with a loud and boisterous personality, Guy is the self-sworn rival of Hatake Kakashi, often challenging him to contests to prove which of them is the better ninja.  Guy is also the mentor of Rock Lee, who follows in Guy’s fashion footsteps.

Hinata Hyuga

A soft-spoken, polite, kind girl, Hinata Hyuga appears on the surface to be ill-suited to the life of a ninja on the anime TV series Naruto. She is the heir of a powerful and wealthy clan, but they disowned her because of her meek disposition. Once she joins Team 8 and meets Naruto, however, she begins to find her confidence and develop her exceptional skills. In Part 1 of the series she wears her hair in a short bob and covers up in a tan coat and dark pants. Sew on a thick trim of white fur to the jacket and paint on the leaf patch for the full effect.

Gaara

In the anime TV series Naruto, Gaara is a ninja-in-training from the sand village Suna and, at first, the rival of titular character Naruto. He is a dark, solitary boy who grew up alone in his village because he carries within him the powerful and monstrous One-Tailed Shukaku. Because of this he vowed to live for himself alone, killing those who crossed his path. In Part 1 of the series he wears a black outfit with a white sash and carries his signature sand gourd on his back. For his brown sash, use a piece of thick fabric for the main part and then sew on stripes of faux leather with a silver buckle at each end.

Sakura Haruno

A member of legendary ninja Team 7 on the hit anime series Naruto, Sakura Haruno is a sensitive, kind, slightly wacky girl with a crush on fellow teammate Sasuke. She is the smartest of the bunch, but as a counterbalance requires the most extensive physical training to catch up to her teammates – which she handily does. This guide covers her outfit for Part 1, a red quipao dress and shorts appropriate for ninja training.

Neji Hyuga

Neji Hyuga believes himself to be a rare prodigy and exceptional ninja among the young ninjas-in-training on the anime series Naruto. Unfortunately, he was born into a branch of the clan that must serve the main house, and so feels shafted by fate. Because of this he acts out against the main house clan members and views those with less or different talents as ‘weaker’ than himself. In Part 1 of the series he wears a bland beige and grey outfit with long brown hair and his clan’s pale white eyes. For the top, crop the sleeves of a zip-up hoodie and buy patches of similar color to sew on overtop.

Kabuto Yakushi

As the right-hand man of series villain Orochimaru, Kabuto Yakushi acts as a spy in the anime TV series Naruto. He spent his life training and then serving as a spy for multiple organizations, eventually attracting the attention of Orochimaru. He excels at collecting information and exhibits strong medicinal talents. Eventually he has an existential crisis about his identity and place in the world, leading him down a much different path. His Part 1 outfit requires a little bit of altering: buy a large dark grey turtleneck a few sizes too big and crop off the sleeves. If you can’t find cropped dark grey pants, crop a regular pair.
