Teuchi (テウチ, Teuchi) is a citizen of Konohagakure and the owner of Ramen Ichiraku.

Personality

Teuchi is a very kind and jovial man. Often seen smiling, he and his daughter, Ayame, have always treated Naruto Uzumaki well, considering him their best customer. Nevertheless, he is a stern businessman and will lash out at his employees when they make mistakes such as sticking their thumb in a bowl of ramen. He has also been described as stubborn, obstinate, and having the temperament of a craftsman.

Part I

Search for Tsunade Arc

He witnesses Jiraiya and Naruto head off to Shukuba Town, and is later asked where they went by Sasuke.

Ninja Chef Arc

In the anime, Ayame was kidnapped by Hakkaku, who wanted Teuchi's recipe. The recipe was just to remove the bitter taste from the soup.

Part II

Hidan and Kakuzu Arc

After Naruto managed to cut the waterfall in his wind natured chakra training, he was treated to some ramen at Ichiraku. However Teuchi kept rejecting the ramen made by his apprentices Matsu and Nishi before Naruto could eat it, and was quickly getting angry with them, claiming that they kept making these stupid mistakes.[3]

Itachi Pursuit Arc

In the anime, Teuchi is seen working behind the bar with his daughter, Ayame, while Naruto and Jiraiya discuss about dealing with Itachi and Sasuke.[4]

Confining the Jinchūriki Arc

TeuchiXNarutoXSakura

Sakura informs Teuchi and Naruto about Tsunade's recovery.

Soon after Tsunade regained consciousness, Sakura burst into Ichiraku to inform Naruto and Teuchi about what happened. Upon hearing the good news, Teuchi offered a bowl of ramen to both Naruto and Sakura, on the house, which Naruto accepted, but Sakura declined. Just as Naruto was about to eat he was reverse-summoned to Mount Myōboku, much to Teuchi's confusion. When Naruto reappeared in Ramen Ichiraku, Teuchi asked where his best customer disappeared to. When Naruto was asked by the other ninja customers for his autograph, Teuchi thought proudly at how Naruto was being called the "Miracle boy" and at the irony at how not so long ago he was thought of as the opposite. Teuchi then asked the other customers to allow Naruto to finish his meal before he signed anything.

Movies

Younger Teuchi

A younger Teuchi, on the opening day of Ramen Ichiraku.

Naruto Shippūden 3: Inheritors of the Will of Fire

He is seen when Naruto is at Ramen Ichiraku after he escaped from the hospital.

Naruto Shippūden 4: The Lost Tower

Teuchi is seen in a flashback, on Ramen Ichiraku grand opening, twenty years in the past. The first day seemed to be a success, as he had a huge line of customers impatiently waiting for his half price ramen.

Trivia

  • Teuchi first made his appearance in the official series in a short omake, published in the first databook. However, he had appeared before in the pilot of Naruto, making him one of the earliest appearing characters from the series, together with Naruto Uzumaki himself and an early version of Hiruzen Sarutobi. His first appearance in the actual manga was in chapter 144.
  • Teuchi's favourite word is "artisan", "craft" (匠, takumi).
  • Teuchi's name can mean "making noodles by hand" (手打ち). However, the same word can also mean "killing someone with one's bare hands."
