What's Going To Be Here?

Alright, for those of you you don't know (in which case you maybe shouldn't be here) Naruto is both an anime and a manga. And that, for this section anyways, causes a problem, beacuse I'm so indesive I don't know what to put here. What I'm going for is a link to an area with the plot of Naruto but I also want to do a summory of either each book or each episode. This is where you come in. Please vote below on which one you would like below:

  1. Summory of each book
  1. Summory of each episode
  1. Neither
  1. No plot at all

Thanks for your help. User: LoneWolf 5

Why not make the plot page a short overview of the general theme of the Naruto plotline and the differences between the Anime and Manga. We'll also make a page for the Overview of the Anime Plotline and one for the Overview of the Manga Plotline. And there isn't much else to write about Naruto after you're done with characters, jutsus, areas, etc... so we'll also have room to do an overview of every Anime and Manga book and episode in their own articles.

Shiore's cause of death

Is it to much speculating to say that he died from Kusanagi Sword: Long Sword of the Heavens? Judging from episode 29, he died from a stab wound around his belly. Jacce | Talk 08:22, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Face-meltage seems less troublesome. ~SnapperTo 19:44, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

I don't understand

Is something wrong with this page? Where are all those arcs? Ttogafer (talk) 20:04, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

New filler

Will we have a new filler arc(after the Pain invasion)? Manga chapters used for the episodes are going rapidly fast... Ttogafer (talk) 17:56, May 24, 2010 (UTC)


Should they be listed? Characters like Gaara, Shizune, Fukasaku and Kakashi died in Part 2, but were later resurrected. It's different from resurrection through Edo Tensei, so we don't need to worry about that one. Another matter I'd like to bring up is of flashback deaths. How should they be listed? For example, we know Minato died before the start of the series, but it's quite likely we'll actually see his death in a chapter or two. Should he be listed as having had his death shown in the current arc? Izuna's funeral was shown as a flashback/story telling, should it be mentioned in the death section? Same for other "told to be dead"/"death shown in flashback" characters. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:03, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

The characters that were shown to have died in that arc should be listed in the arc... unless you put "Before the Start of the Series" than we can list them, correctly. KiumaruHamachi (talk) 01:24, July 25, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

Fourth Great Shinobi World War Arc?

Since the war already started, should we start a new arc for it?-- (talk) 21:35, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

Who thought it was a great idea to do the plot up in alphabetical order rather than chronological? Frankly its confusing as hell from a novice's point of view. —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

No one, as far as I can see. What gave you that impression? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:22, May 4, 2012 (UTC)


Who revised the plot of Naruto page?! The list of arcs even the fillers, some of it are removed.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Arc Names from Stealth Volume: Road to Ninja

The Stealth Volume: Road to Ninja volume was given away as a promotional book along with Volume 61 to commemorate the movie. It's published in basically the exact same format as a normal volume, except instead of featuring chapters it has three special features relating to the new film: "Road of Naruto", an overview of all the story arcs up through the Fourth Shinobi World War; "Road to Naruto the Movie", the one-shot manga chapter; and "Making of Road to Ninja," a lengthy interview with Kishimoto that includes some of his concept sketches and design notes. It can be read online in its entirety on the 2012 Naruto Special Website on The interesting thing is that the Road of Naruto section features official names and subtitles for all of the story arcs; most of this information has in fact been reproduced on the Special Website.

I'm going to go ahead and translate the names here:

1. Road to Shinobi (“忍”の道へー, "Shinobi" no Michiē)
2. Survival Training Commences!! (スバイバル演習開始!!, Subaibaru Enshū Kaishi!!)
3. The Demon of the Hidden Mist Arrives!! (霧隠れの鬼神現る!!, Kirigakure no Kijin Araware!!)
4. The Chūnin Selection Exams Commence!! (中忍選抜試験開始!!, Chūnin Senbatsu Shiken Kaishi!!)
5. The Konoha Destruction Disturbance!! (木ノ葉崩しの争乱!!, Konoha Kuzushi no Sōran!!)
6. The Mysterious Akatsuki Organization Invades!! (謎の組織“暁”襲来!!, Nazo no Soshiki "Akatsuki" Shūrai!!)
7. Search for the Fifth Hokage Candidate (五代目火影候補探索, Godaime Hokage Kōho Tansaku)
8. Deathmatch! The Sasuke Rescue Mission!! (死闘!サスケ奪回任務!!, Shitō! Sasuke Dakkai Ninmu!!)
Opposing Forces Clash at the Valley of the End!! (雌雄を決する終末の谷の戦い!!, Shiyū o Kessuru Shūmatsu no Tani no Tatakai!!)
9. Rescue the Kazekage!! (風影を奪還せよ!!, Kazekage o Dakkan seyo!!)
10. Tenchi Bridge Reconnaissance!! (天地橋偵察!!, Tenchi-bashi Teisatsu!!)
11. Akatsuki's Immortal Combo Attacks!! (“暁”不死コンビを討て!!, "Akatsuki" Fushi-Konbi o Ute!!)
12. Team Hebi Assembles!! (小隊“蛇”結成!!, Shōtai "Hebi" Kessei!!)
13. Deathmatch! Sasuke vs Deidara!! (死闘!サスケVSデイダラ!!, Shitō! Sasuke Bāsasu Deidara!)
14. Uchiha Brothers Decisive Battle!! (うちは兄弟決戦!!, Uchiha Kyōdai Kessen!!)
15. Pain's Assault!! (ペイン急襲!!, Pein Kyūshū!!)
16. The Five Kage Summit is Held!! (五影会談開催!!, Gokage Kaidan Kaisai!!)
17. Showdown! Nine-Tails!! (対決!“九尾”!!, Taiketsu! "Kyūbi"!!)
The Shinobi World War to Decide the Future!! (未来を決める忍界大戦!!, Mirai o Kimeru Ninkai Taisen!!)

Note that the "Opposing Forces Clash at the Valley of the End!!" is described as the 9th story arc on the Special Website's story section, offsetting the numbering for the following arcs. In the book it's simply the header of a big two-page spread about the battle. Likewise, the final listing is the header of a two-page spread about the war, but becomes the 19th arc (due to the offset) on the website, where it's renamed Outbreak of the Fourth Shinobi World War!! (第四次忍界大戦、勃発!!, Daiyonji Ninkai Taisen, Boppatsu!!).

Feel free to use these in the article as you see fit. FF-Suzaku (talk) 05:41, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

This looks very interesting, though I'm a bit concerned by the fact they call Zetsu a Kusagakure missing-nin. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:29, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Maybe it's as I said and the original white zetsu isn't a creation but simply was a dude bathed in Hashi's DNA that turned him into a plantman. Only his clones were born from the "tree" That would also explain the blood type part.--Elveonora (talk) 19:59, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

It's possible that there's something to it. There could be a lot of possible reasons why Zetsu would be classified as Kusagakure. Perhaps it's part of a false identity he uses, perhaps there is more to his origins than just being grown from a giant lotus using Hashirama's DNA, or perhaps it's simply an error on the part of the website staff. The character chart isn't included in the book, so for now, I'd lean towards the latter. It might be worth noting in his trivia section, however. You can read the full book online here, by the way. FF-Suzaku (talk) 20:21, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

It should be inspected further. Correct me if I'm wrong, but a card game or a videogame had Zetsu listed as a Kusa ninja as well? High chance of that being an error, but isn't this directly from Kishimoto or at least with him having a hand in it?--Elveonora (talk) 20:59, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Arc Name Changes

Here are some arc name changes that I am considering

Note: These are only suggestions. Not all them have to be agreed. Some of them can be rejected, some of you might come up with better names than I have. All I know is I have problem with the names of these arcs and here's why

Introduction Arc > Team 7 Arc:

- Every first arc in a manga introduces the reader to the world, characters, concepts etc. Not one other manga has ever called it's first arc introduction arc

- This arc revolves around Team 7. The formation of team 7 and their teamwork

- The only siginificant characters in this are Team 7, Iruka, The 3rd Hokage, Mizuki & Konohamaru

Invasion of Konoha Arc > Sand & Sound Invasion Arc:

- This is just as pointless as calling the Invasion of Pain Arc this. And Im sure that arc would've taken the name if this arc didn't exist

- It mainly revolves around the sand and sound ninja invading Konoha

- This arc can also be called Orochimaru Invasion arc or something. Anything that differentiates this arc from the Invasion of Pain arc

Seperate Return of Itachi Arc from the Search for Tsuande Arc:

- Let's face it, Itachi's return has nothing to do with Naruto's & Jiraiya's search for Tsunade. I know Itachi tried to attack Naruto while they were on their way looking for Tsuande, but nothing in this arc affects the Search for Tsuande arc anymore than any other arc

- If anything the return of Itachi was only a delay to the search for Tsuande. Yes, Kakashi and Sasuke got injured and we learn about the Akatsuki but that doesn't really tie in with the search for Tsuande

Sasuke Retrieval Arc > Sound Five Arc

- Yes, this arc is mainly about the Sasuke rescue mission but there are countless missions that involve retrieving Sasuke. The main antagonist are the sound 5, therefore it is the Sound Five Arc

Filler Arcs

Land of Rice Fields Arc > Fūma Clan Arc:

- Ok I know that there is another Fūma clan in the series, however until there is any significant involvement from them in the series, we should ignore that fact

- Ok this obviously takes place when they travel to the Land of Rice Fields, but this arc is about the meeting Sasame of the Fūma clan, and them finding her cousin Arashi, as well as fighting Kagero

Curry of Life Arc > Raiga & Ranmaru Arc:

- Ok where do I begin. This arc has little do with the curry, and all it did was woke up the unconscious Naruto, Neji & Lee.

- If anything this arc is about the bond between Raiga and Ranmaru, Saving the village from Raiga, and trying to get information about Kisame

Land of Birds Arc > Cursed Warrior Arc:

- Again I know this where the arc takes place, but really this arc is about solving the mystery behind the Cursed Warrior ghost

Hoshigakure Arc > Hidden Star Village Arc:

- There is no need to have to call it by it's full name. Only a suggestion because it sounds simpler, and anyone who hasn't watched the arc wouldn't have clue what the arc name means. At least we get an idea of what it's about if we were to change it

Land of Vegetables Arc > Criminal Brothers Arc:

- Again, this arc is not about the Land of Vegetables. This arc is about protecting some peddlers from the Criminal Brothers, and fighting each one , one by one.

Third Great Beast Arc > Ryūdōin Brothers Arc:

- Ok I don't where third great beast came from but I do know that this arc is about Gensho, of the Ryūdōin Brothers, impersonating Yagura and the brothers trying to get revenge on Guy.

Ultimate Weapon Arc - > Four Celestial Symbols Men Arc

- Ok, I know this arc involves the revival of Semei and combining all their weapons to be come 'The Ultimate Weapon', but really this arc is about the leaf village repaying the sand village by saving Matsuri from the four celestial symbols men. --DuelMaster93 (talk) 02:54, January 27, 2013 (UTC)


Do you think that for the deaths chart, we should add a, pre-part 1 ex. Yashamaru, Sunagakure, himself, explosive tags. -- (talk) 00:47, March 5, 2013 (UTC)

Not sure. It would be rather confusing, since this page doesn't chronicle the series events in a true chronological order, since we don't include a background section for stuff that happened before the actual narrative of the story. We do that for character articles, but not for this page. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:31, March 5, 2013 (UTC)

What about Yahiko? He needs to be added and so does Hanzou --Rias Gremory (talk) 21:50, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

Same situation, they died chronologically before the series. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:38, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

So are both Obito and Madara really dead? Rias Gremory (talk) 23:41, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

With Obito, there's no telling. However, seeing as Madara's chakra and anything related to him vanished, I'm certain he's dead again.--Hockey Machete (talk) 23:47, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Well it says there dead but mabey we'll find out Rias Gremory (talk) 00:06, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Kurama and the demon fox not the exact same .

The demon fox is Kurama's dark half , The part in Naruto is the nine tailed fox but not the demon one . YamiYugi1001 (talk) 08:53, September 3, 2013 (UTC)

There is no dark half and demon half, the half sealed within naruto is kurama's Yang chakra and the half sealed in minato is kurama's Yin chakra.--Charmanking2198 (talk) 13:42, September 3, 2013 (UTC)

New Page Needed

I think we need to create a page dealing with the list of deaths that happened in the series. NgKQ (talk) 14:57, July 29, 2014 (UTC)NgKQ

Blank Period

Will we be adding the Blank Period / epilogue stories and the new spin-off to this article as well? Diamonddeath (talk) 08:48, April 24, 2015 (UTC)

Yes. Can't for the life of me know why not.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 11:04, April 24, 2015 (UTC)

Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring

So how come Naruto Gaiden has been added to this page yet? Was there something stated that it shouldn't be added yet? --AllstarUchiha (talk) 00:54, May 14, 2015 (UTC)

Deaths of Ajisai and Fū

They died during the latest arc, though we didn't see it. Should we add them to "deaths" nevertheless? Norleon (talk) 13:35, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, if they were stated to have been killed, though not seen, they should be added. --Sajuuk [Mod] talk | contribs | Channel 13:39, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

DVD arc names

Just noting these here in case we need them:

  • Episodes 634-651: Infinite Tsukuyomi: Chapter of Activation (無限月読・発動の章, Mugen Tsukuyomi: Hatsudō no Shō)
  • Episodes 652-670: Jiraiya Shinobi Handbook: The Tale of Naruto the Hero (自来也忍法帳~ナルト豪傑物語~, Jiraiya Ninpōchō ~Naruto Gōketsu Monogatari~)
  • Episodes 671-678: Itachi Shinden Book: Light and Darkness (イタチ真伝篇~光と闇~, Itachi Shinden-hen ~Hikari to Yami~)
  • Episodes 679-onwards: Origin of Ninshū: The Two Souls Indra and Asura (忍宗の起源 ~二つの魂インドラ・アシュラ~, Ninshū no Kigen ~Futatsu no Tamashii Indora・Ashura~)

Could someone who has access to the raws confirm that the Boruto movie is called the Vs. Momoshiki Arc? It appears on the 1st page of chapter 10. --Sarutobii2 (talk) 11:13, February 24, 2017 (UTC)
