Mirai Sarutobi (猿飛ミライ, Sarutobi Mirai) is a kunoichi of Konohagakure's Sarutobi clan.


Kurenai and child

Mirai as an infant with her mother.

Mirai is the child of Kurenai and Asuma Sarutobi, born in the depths of Autumn.[2]


As a two-year-old toddler, Mirai was outgoing and friendly to her parents' students, showing a special liking to Shikamaru, hugging him upon seeing him and referring to him as her big brother. She also had a penchant for giving others nicknames: calling Akamaru and Kiba a mixture of both their names for example. As a kunoichi, Mirai is cheerful, energetic and dutiful in carrying out any directive given to her. Though she did not know her father — Asuma having died before she was born — she appears to hold him in high regard as she was seen paying her respects to a framed photograph of him before leaving for a mission.


Kurenai's child The Last

Mirai at age two.

As an infant, she wore a simple yellow kimono with blue trimmings, held closed by a white sash. At two, her hair grew a significant amount and has a short ponytail tied above her head. Mirai wore a tan outfit with lighter tan colour stripe trimmings wrapped around her outfit, in a similar manner of how her mother wore her previous outfit. She also wears pink shinobi sandals.

Her black hair is now long and unruly and she has red, ringed irides — both of which she inherited from her mother, while for the most part she strongly resembles her father having inherited the shape of his face and his features. She wears the standard attire of the Konoha-nin inclusive of a green flack jacket over a black jumper and forehead protector. Some time later her outfit would change somewhat: she now wears a high-collared, long-sleeved outfit with a flack jacket that has button down lapels. She also wears shorts, sandals and an armband with the Sarutobi crest emblazoned on it.


Mirai is a very capable kunoichi, known for escorting the Seventh Hokage, as well as being chosen to protect the Sixth Hokage.[3] Stemming from her heritage, she is capable of using her parents abilities, such as using chakra flow to augments the killing power of her chakra blades and use Yin Release to cast powerful genjutsu.

She also knows a range of Wind and Fire Release techniques, the former of which she was instructed in the use of long-range techniques by Temari Nara and the latter Mirai can use create a pillar of fire out of a small spark.[4]

She has also pulled Akamaru's ears, with the latter surprisingly tamed. Later, she attends Hinata and Naruto Uzumaki's wedding alongside her mother, where she gave the bride flowers.[5]

New Era

During her childhood, Mirai visited her father's grave countless times. Being acquainted with Shikadai Nara since his birth, Mirai developed a sibling-like relationship with him since they both were being trained by his father Shikamaru Nara. When Shikadai entered the Academy, Mirai supervised his training, with her goal to pass techniques that Shikamaru had taught to her onto Shikadai. At some point she participated in the Chūnin Exams, where she became a chūnin. Straight after her promotion, she visited her father's grave to tell him of the news, where she encountered Shikamaru, who congratulated Mirai and handed her Asuma's chakra blades.[4]
