Here’s a look at Naruto’s youth and how it helped him become the Seventh Hokage.
Anyone who knows even a little bit about Naruto and his childhood understands that his ultimate goal as a teenager was to become the next Hokage.
Essentially, this village leadership is definitely a long shot for those who don’t look like it will do well, but it’s also a battle path fraught with hardship and tragedy.
Naruto’s desire to become Hokage reflects his mysterious origins, as well as his desire to gain the attention and approval of a village that shunned him. Here’s a look at Naruto’s youth and how it helped him become the Seventh Hokage.
Naruto’s Tragic Childhood
Naruto Uzumaki is the son of Namikaze Minato and Uzumaki Kushina, who was once the Fourth Hokage of Konoha.
Naruto’s mother used to be the Jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails – a powerful fox-tailed beast described as cruel, deeply hating humans.
Unfortunately, during childbirth, Kushina was captured and the Nine-Tails was released from her body, subsequently wreaking havoc on the village.
Both Naruto’s father and mother died in the ensuing battle, Minato sacrificing his life and soul to seal half of the Nine-Tails within Naruto.
Unfortunately, this would make him an orphan and rob him of any privileges his parents might have bestowed.
His birth was a mysterious event unknown to the villagers, and he was named after the protagonist of Jiraiya’s story and to protect him no one knew he was the son of the Second Hokage. Four and Kushina.
Sadly, it was known throughout the village that he had sealed the Nine-Tails – a monster that instills fear. This caused the villagers to see him as a demon and despise him, alienating Naruto. He survived on a small allowance from the Third Hokage.
Naruto really didn’t know who his parents were or why he was so hated by the whole village. His ignorance about the Nine-Tails stems from the fact that the Third Hokage Sarutobi Hiruzen forbade anyone to mention this.
This attempt was intended to keep kids of Naruto’s age from hating him the way their parents did, but it sadly backfired, as they alienated him even more.
However, Sarutobi doesn’t seem to know how to raise a child, and most of the time Naruto just eats Ramen and lives alone.
Naruto’s Role as Hokage
Discriminated by almost the entire village, Naruto had to resort to pranksters to get everyone’s attention, no matter how negative.
As he grew older, he developed a desire to become the next Hokage of his village, with the primary aim of being recognized by everyone in the Village.
Many people ridiculed this dream, but that attention alone was able to satisfy Naruto, who always craved attention after being shunned for a long time.
His quest to become Hokage may also reflect a reproach towards Sarutobi Hiruzen, who took back his role as a father after Minato’s death.
Naruto could have blamed him for not stopping the harsh treatment he received from others. This is evidenced by his destructive images with Sarutobi at the beginning of the series.
However, in the end he still respects him, and any resentment towards him is gone as he accepts Konohamaru – Sarutobi’s grandson as a younger brother and teaches some ninjutsu (like Sexy Jutsu) ).
In the end, all the harsh treatment Naruto received from his friends and other villagers only made him more accepting and compassionate towards others.
Those who mocked and scorned him in the past were later counted among Naruto’s friends. Thus, he became more and more determined to become the next Hokage, eventually achieving this goal by the end of his series.
Unfortunately, the role kept him from spending as much time with his family as he would have liked, ironically repeating what Sarutobi went through. However, Naruto is a fair and strong Hokage, whose outlook on life is fueled by his unhappy upbringing and traumatic past.
