Of course people like Might Guy is another example. He likes being around people a lot.
Here’s a list worth mentioning.
Introvert Naruto characters:
Orochimaru is one of the best written characters in the
He’s a villain, a cunning character, smart as F and even though he’s sinister, in reality he is a scientist. Just a twisted one early on.
Orochimaru is the type of
He enjoys his own company and working like a mad man on projects he enjoys. Even for long periods of time.
Even though Orochimaru is initially a villain, he’s a likable character who raises the quality of the
2. Hinata Hyuga
Hinata Hyuga is one of the most appreciated waifu’s from
All fans, no matter which side of the fence you’re on, are aware of Hinata’s introverted traits. She’s one of the more introverted from
She spent her time observing
If we’re talking about femininity in particular, Hinata is the definition of it (more than others in the series that is).
Caring, compassionate, empathetic, gentle, and thoughtful. The type of person who doesn’t gossip and can be trusted without question.
3. Kakashi Hatake
Kakashi is an outward person when he wants to be. That’s what makes him one of the best Sensei’s in the
His past life is what makes him a good mentor, and even back then his introversion in particular was clear as day.
He’s in his own thoughts a lot. Reserved. And so laid back that it can kill Might Guy’s overreactive mood when he’s trying to be upbeat and jolly.
Gaara of the desert is a feared character in the early stages of
He has a nasty past, a savage upbringing, and is hated by others.
At some point even the most innocent of people are broken, and they become a product of their environment.
Gaara is a perfect representation of this fact.
Only later with
Temari, one of the Gaara’s allies, is another
Temari isn’t one for cheap talk. She’s one of the most frank, straightforward, no bullsh*t characters in the franchise.
She’s one of the people who understood Gaara early on, and who Gaara didn’t mind having around (without killing them).
A little more masculine and aggressive in some ways. Tenten though is one of the most attractive girls in the
She’s sadly one of the only few female
6. Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke Uchiha, even as a kid before it all goes horribly wrong, is an
After the fact (Sasuke’s clan being slaughtered) this just takes his introversion to an extreme.
Sasuke is a thinker. Though he seems rash, more so early on, he’s more practical than
He’s never been the type to kiss up to people. He’s straightforward and shows you how he feels either through words or his actions.
Definitely not the type to make friends just for the label. It has to be genuine, real, and it has to mean something.
He knows his worth and won’t budge for anyone. Even if that makes him seem like a prick.
Like many female characters In
She appears in very few scenes even though she’s one of the most capable characters in the franchise.
As a person she’s reserved (unless provoked) but hard working, has goals, and likes practicing and improving on her craft.
Tenten is probably the most “normal” seeming character out of her group (Team Guy). She brings common sense among nonsense.
When her group is fooling around, she brings order in the chaos. Either that or she just stays reserved and leaves it be.
Konan is a character who went against Obito later on in the
Focusing on character writing, Konan is reserved, introverted, and generally doesn’t play a massive role in
She’s not a character who stood out apart from her beauty, abilities, and backstory.
9. Itachi Uchiha
Itachi Uchiha, like the Uchiha in general, are introverted and reserved people. Some of it comes down to Itachi as a person, the rest is down to his harsh experiences in life.
He buried his feelings like a typical
Because of his sacrifice to the plot, the village, and the series as a whole, Itachi is revered like no other
His role in the franchise is too strong, and the weight of his story is as deep as it can get.
10. Neji Hyuga
Neji Hyuga is another Hyuga member who’s introverted. This is in part his personality, but also his upbringing and environment.
He’s a hard worker, someone who values work ethic and doesn’t think much of people who appear “weak” or don’t try hard enough.
This part of his personality evolves as he see’s the light and breaks away from his fixed mindset.
As another member of Team Guy, Neji is probably the 2nd most normal character from the group. Though that’s debatable since he’s from the Hyuga clan.
Kakuzu is one of the members of the Akatsuki. And was
One of Kakuzu’s best moments is before and during
He’s not a man of too many words. He’s efficient, relentless, over prepared and isn’t overly emotional.
Kaguya is a lone soul. A lone wolf. A woman who’s hurt by the past and is considered the most
She’s high up on the list.
For someone so
Some fans appreciate her involvement in the plot, but others not so much. As is the case with the WAR arc and everything afterwards.
13. Shikamaru Nara
Shikamaru is the strategist of the series. But similar to a character like Houtarou from Hyouka, he’s lazy. He doesn’t do things for the sake of it.
This laziness makes him efficient and practical in his actions and thinking. It’s also why his motivations are specific rather than broad.
He’ll make a move if there’s purpose to it.
14. Choji Akimichi
Choji Akimichi is Shikamaru’s friend. They’ve been close for years. Shikamaru isn’t the judgmental type, and that’s how their friendship began.
Choji has always been targeted for his weight, and isn’t the most confident person in general. Even comparable to Hinata early on.
He has some character development, and he gets progressively better and more involved and relevant to the plot. And is an
Sai is a quiet character and a bit socially awkward in the
There’s a lot of backstory to his role, and given his “mission” it only makes sense he behaves the way he does, but that changes.
He opens up more, becomes more confident in himself and his life as a whole, plus people around him start to warm to him eventually.
He’s not the most prominent
Haku is a character who shows up mostly in the early parts of season 1, and yet he’s a relevant character in the
He makes a strong impact on the story, and connects to parts of it that play out down the line (Shinobi, clans, etc).

An unfortunate character, and an
