Naruto is one of the most-loved characters all around the world and people have grown up alongside him watching the anime series. The hero belongs to one of the strongest clans in the show, the Uzumaki Clan, and yet very little is known about it. The only thing that was revealed in the story was that the clan was attacked and all the members were killed after some of the nations of the world banded together to take them out believing that the village was too powerful to be allowed to continue. That was the only explanation given for the clan members not showing up in the show. Despite the destruction of the clan, there had been a few survivors who were in different locations at the time, and we also know of a few other Uzumaki clan members through the flashbacks in the story.
So, in this article, we will be listing down some of the known Uzumaki Clan members that you might already know; and if you don’t, then this is the time for you to brush up on your knowledge. With that being said, let’s begin our article!
11 Known Members of the Uzumaki Clan
Nawaki is the younger brother of Tsunade and the grandson of Hashirama Senju and Mito Uzumaki, which makes her part Uzumaki as well. He was only revealed in flashbacks as he’s been deceased for a long time; but he was very similar to Naruto personality-wise as he too wanted to earn the title of the Hokage and protect the village.
Being the granddaughter of Hashirama Senju and Mito Uzumaki, she is part Uzumaki as well. She’s one of the Leaf Village’s Sannin along with Jiraiya and Orochimaru, as well as world’s greatest medical ninja and she even became the Fifth Hokage which proves just how strong she is. You already know all about her if you’re a fan of the show because she’s one of the main characters and appears a lot of times!
9. Fuso Uzumaki
You may not know about her because she isn’t a prominent character in the show, but Fuso Uzumaki is actually Nagato’s mother and makes a brief appearance. She lived in Amegakure (Village hidden in the Rain) along with her husband and son before she was killed by Konoha ninjas who mistook them as enemies.
8. Ashina Uzumaki
Ashina Uzumaki was the leader of the Uzumaki clan during the founding of Konohagakure. He was extremely skilled in fūinjutsu and was unrivaled in the technique as it was shown in the anime that he was able to seal a beast within just a few moments. It’s also believed that he is the forefather of Konoha’s fūinjutsu
7. Karin Uzumaki
Karin is a former kunoichi of Kusagakure who makes her first appearance in Naruto Shippuden, and was also shown to be a part of the Chunin Exams held in the Leaf Village. It was here that she was approached and recruited by Orochimaru who later made her in charge of the Southern Hideout. She would later join Sasuke in his quest to kill his brother. Being an Uzumaki, she’s got huge chakra reserves and a strong life force and is able to heal people by letting them bite her. Moreover, she’s got a strong sensory perception and she’s also quite intelligent as she is able to come up with strategies that contribute to the missions.
Nagato is a shinobi from Amegakure and a descendant of the Uzumaki Clan. After the Second Shinobi World War, and after his parents died, he met with Yahiko and Konan and trained under Jiraiya who thought him to be the reincarnation of the Sage of the Six Paths because of the Rinnegan he possessed. He later formed Akatsuki along with Yahiko and Konan with an aim to bringing peace to the shinobi world, but would later go down a more violent path and force peace on the world by any means necessary following Yahiko’s death.
5. Himawari Uzumaki
Himawari Uzumaki is the daughter of Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyuga making her a descendant of both the Uzumaki clan and Hyuga clan. Although she has a kind and considerate personality, she’s still quite powerful and full of potential. She was able to awaken the Byakugan out of anger after her favorite toy was ripped apart by Boruto; and despite her lack of training, she was able to knock out Naruto with a single blow.
4. Boruto Uzumaki
Boruto is the son of Naruto and Hinata making him a descendant of both Uzumaki clan and Hyuga clan. He’s strong-willed, loud and quite energetic just like his father and his facial features also resemble his father’s. However, unlike Naruto when he was his age, he’s shown quite a natural talent and is able to perform Wind release, Lightning release and Water release and has also possesses a dojutsu called “Jougan”, however not much is known about it yet. Unlike his father, he doesn’t want to become the Hokage but would like to become a support system for the Hokage just like his mentor, Sasuke.
3. Mito Uzumaki
Mito Uzumaki was a kunoichi who migrated to the Leaf Village from her village and married Hashirama Senju. Being from the Uzumaki clan, she had huge chakra reserves, having an especially powerful and unique type of chakra, and was able to seal the entirety Kurama within herself to become the beast’s first Jinchuriki. She never gained full control over the beast, but kept it sealed until she chose Kushina as her successor. Not much is known about her fighting prowess, but she had a strong life force as she lived through the reign of the first three Hokages.
2. Kushina Uzumaki
Kushina is the mother of Naruto Uzumaki, who migrated to Konoha after she was selected as the next Jinchuriki of Kurama due to her special chakra. She was always headstrong and a fierce fighter possessing a strong life force and tremendous chakra reserves. She was very talented in the art of fuinjutsu and was even able to materialize Adamantine Sealing Chains which were strong enough to restrain Kurama and could even form a barrier with these chains keeping anyone from entering. Moreover, she had a verbal tic as she ended her sentences with “you know”, a trait that was inherited by Naruto and later her grandson, Boruto as well.
1. Naruto Uzumaki
The number one hyperactive, knucklehead ninja of the Leaf Village who would rise from the very depths and go on to earn the respect of every single member of his village and beyond and become the Seventh Hokage. Do I really need to tell you anything about Naruto Uzumaki that you don’t already know? I don’t think so!
Did You Know All Of The Uzumaki Clan Members?
Did you get all of them right, or did you forget some of them from the above list? It doesn’t matter because now you know about them. However, they are not the only ones as there are others as well that I didn’t add in the list for obvious reasons. The first member is Menma Uzumaki, who is Naruto’s counterpart in an alternate reality created by Genjutsu, and also a son of Minato and Kushina. The second member is Karin’s mother who was shown briefly in the anime and since we don’t know her name, we didn’t add her in the list.
Finally there is Honoka, who also appeared in the anime but was never revealed to be an Uzumaki. However, she possessed red hair and was able to perform the sealing techniques that the Uzumaki Clan was known for, and her sealing technique could actually form chains to restrain her targets, which was much similar to Kushina’s Adamantine Sealing Chains technique. Moreover, a book found in the episode also reveals finding a member of a “certain clan of ninja” further fueling the rumors that she indeed was one of the surviving Uzumaki. But since she appeared in the anime and not in the manga, we decided to not include her in the list.
So, those were each and every one of the members of the Uzumaki Clan that have appeared in the manga as well as in the anime show. Do let us know if you enjoyed reading the article, and leave your feedback in the comments section below!
