Unlike the Boruto era, which was more peaceful and stable, the ninjas in naruto era used to live a difficult life to survive on the battlefield.
Of all the ninjas with a tough adult life; There are some people who have struggled since childhood! Who are they, and what happened to their childhood?
Here are the top 7 ninjas in Naruto who spent an unhappy childhood .
Sasuke’s childhood was pretty normal at first; lived happily with his father and mother, always looking up to his brother and surrounded by other Klansmen. But that all changed when Itachi massacred the entire clan.
Killing all the Uchiha clansmen and leaving only Sasuke, gaining immense power to take revenge on Itachi became Sasuke’s life goal.
The few remaining members of the Uzumaki clan after their village was destroyed, Karin and her mother escaped to Kusagakure – on the condition that the mother help them heal from the battle with her powers.
Due to being forced to work continuously, Karin’s mother died. Karin is then forced to take the place of her mother’s job. She was later recruited by Orochimaru when Otogakure attacked and burned Kusagakure.
Nagato lives with his parents, Fuso and Ise, on the outskirts of Amegakure, which is usually a battlefield. One day during the Second World War Shinobi, their house was broken into by a pair of Konohagakure ninjas.
Two Konoha ninjas killed Fuso and Ise when they tried to escape. After taking revenge with the power of the Rinnegan (secretly given by Madara), Nagato was forced to wander alone – until he met Konan and Yahiko, war orphans.
Losing his parents to war at an early age caused Orochimaru to develop an eccentric and strange personality.
Not long after his parents died, Orochimaru found a white snake near their grave. Teacher Hiruzen explains that the appearance of a white snake signifies good luck and rebirth. It indirectly made Orochimaru go crazy studying kinjutsu and gathering all the knowledge in all the continents of the ninja world.
Jiraiya felt that Orochimaru’s actions were his way of forgetting painful memories of the past.
Becoming a Jinchuriki is never easy. Taking over the power of the one-tailed beast Shukaku caused Gaara to be shunned by the entire Sunagakure village. In addition, since childhood he has lived a secluded life and was trained as a killer by his father, Rasa, and his uncle, Yashamaru.
His hatred increased when Rasa assigned Yashamaru to kill Gaara, as one of the tests. Rasa tried to kill Gaara at least five times. Losing faith, since then Gaara lived only to protect himself.
Life in the Civil War exposes Hashirama Senju, not only with endless wars, but also with the deaths of those closest to him and his brothers. During the conflict with the Uchiha Hashirama clan, two brothers were lost: Butsuma and Itama Senju.
Due to the harshness of life, Hashirama promised he would one day create world peace allowing future children to live in peace.
Like Gaara, Naruto was ostracized for being Jinchuriki. Plus, he has no siblings and his parents have died since he was a child.
Fortunately, Naruto is not trapped in a vengeful loophole because he has friends and people who will accept him unconditionally.
