Naruto Uzumaki (うずまき ナルト, Uzumaki Naruto?) is a fictional character in the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto as the main protagonist for the series and developed into other media. While creating Naruto, Kishimoto kept in mind to keep the character “simple and stupid” while giving him many attributes of Son Goku from the Dragon Ball franchise.In the story, Naruto is a young ninja from the fictional village of Konoha. His body encases the spirit of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox that attacked his village around the time of his birth. His primary motivation throughout the series is to become Hokage, or in other words, the village leader of Konoha. During the beginning of the series, Naruto was a simple-minded prankster who wished for acceptance. However, as the series progresses, Naruto develops into a much more mature character, although he still retains some of his childlike traits. Naruto appears in all of the series’ films, as well as in other media related to the franchise, including video games and OVAs.
