Top Ten Naruto Characters With the Hardest LifeCharacters from worst to best, dead or not, good or bad but must have done form of back story
The Top Ten
His dream crushed, pacifist by heart and still had to do the untinkable.. his life was the most tragic in all of anime, he had to burden everyting, play te badguy and no1 could know what he did. and still he is the most complex character ever in all of anime, he was still sane even after such big burdens. he knew that he was a badguy so he had to atone for his sins by being killed by his younger brother. that is the life of Itachi Uchiha, the most tragic hero ever and still unselfish.
Killed his clan to stop a war, became a villain and later died by of course his brother. He did everything for the village but to this day people still diss him... :(
This character is an complex character in the history anime/manga
He didn't have a life he wanted,he killed his own clans then was claimed a rogue ninja because he HAD to desert his own village to go to Akatsuki to spy.And his brother wanted to go and kill him.come on,his life was terrible
Doesn't need to be explained, but why the heck not anyway. He was always following his brother's shadow and wanting to prove himself worthy of the Uchiha name. He looked up to Itachi, and then Itachi killed the Clan and spared only Sasuke, calling his life pathetic. Sasuke needed a purpose in life, which was revenge on his own brother, despite his past. Everything he knew was gone in an instant, and he was confused and didn't understand. His brother was suddenly evil. He was suddenly shunned by everyone. He was lonely, watching the other kids and their parents happily walk away, staying in the shadows and dreaming of revenge on Itachi for messing up his life. Then he found friends in Naruto, Sakura, and a parent figure in Kakashi. He found a different purpose in life, to protect his comrades. He almost forgot about revenge...and then Itachi showed up once more and tried to take away Naruto, his friend; rival; and reason for living. Then he watched helplessly as his teammates ...more
Question... Why is Itachi in 1st place? He's dead...
And he isn't just first for this, he is also for almost every other Naruto based thing that isn't for females only.
Duh. Kinda Witnessed his brother kill his clan.
My baby went through hell 😢
Gaara's life was extremely difficult! The saddest part was when he tried to play with the other children, and they faced him with prejudice. He is also an insominaic, suffering from Shukaku.
Like Naruto only no one cared for him until he met Naruto.
His name should be higher because Naruto made friends but gaara was alone for all his life and when he got older his life got better while Naruto did have friends from ep 1
Everyone hated him, everyone dissed him for 12 years or so of his life and he was orphaned.
Naruto was born whitout parents and everyone was hating him his best friend
left him kurama sealed in him who killed them parents and he neef to live white kurama inside himself
dude why isn't it naruto number one he was hated by literly everyone in the hidden Leaf
I had a hard time deciding between Haku and Gaara because they both have tragic stories however Gaara lived and became a kazekage loved by many and his life improved. Unfortunately Haku wasn't as lucky. Here is his life story: He was born in a slow village and had a kenkai Genkai like his mother and when his father found out about the kenkai Genkai he killed his mother and tried to kill him too but then Haku killed him by accident in fear. Haku was then all alone until he met zabusa who took him in to live as his weapon and tool and Haku did that and served him as a tool to the point of sacrificing his life to save his. He didn't live long enough to realize that he had become precious to Zabusa too.
Haku's life story was so sad it made me cry! He died young and thought that he failed Zabuza,since the latter was also dead. He threw his life away to protect his master!
Sorta same life as Sasuke, same life as Naruto... Died and still thinks he's a tool.
He had to burden his dad's eath at 4 years old and saw the body himself, he saw his friend Obito 'die' because of his actions, he then killed Rin by accident, breaking his promise to Obito. Then he went into the Anbu nad literally killed people without thinking twice about it. Shortly after his sensei died, losing all the people he ever cared for. Later, he had to bear witnessing his student becoming a rogue ninja and then finding out that Obito was still alive and a criminal
Mom dead, Dad suicide, sensei dead, unintentionally killed Rin, saw Obito die twice... Had to witness his friend go from fun to not so much. Basically he had to live through all of this but unlike most characters he didn't go evil.
While everyone is naming the typical characters that stand out like naruto, sasuke and Itachi, I still think that Kakashi’s life, while not suprassing Itachis life in the hardest element, it still is one of the most heart vreaking stories in Naruto.
Just think about it: just because his is a genius, he was made genning at age 4-5, starting a hard cold-killer life before he even hit puberty! And, he witnessed his dad suicide at the same age: found him dead, lying in his bedroom floor with a sword in his body. Traumatizing, right? And his mother is presumed dead, so he was left as a 5 year okd orfaned genin hated by the entire village (that's the reason his dad killed himself). He was shunned, was friendless. Kinda like Naruto in this: was hated by a reason beyond him.
Then, made Chuunin at 5-6, also the youngest ever. Went to a lot of war missions while still being a kid.
Then, made jounin at age 11-12, got his best friend, Obito,killed indirectly as a product of his ...more
Pain of Rin's death and the fact she didn't love him is the reason he helped Madara out in the first place. He wants to be with Rin again and will attempt to kill Kakashi ( including Pain arc as he creared Pain) twice. The guilt of this lead to hisome scafrice
Orphaned probably... Well his life was ok until he met Madara then it just got bad... Very bad.
His family died, his friend died, he had to meet Obito and killed Jiraiya... His master from konoha which were those same idiots came from, idiots.
I feel so sorry for him,he lost everything.First he lost his parents,his dog,his friends died,he lost his legs,and he died.
Everything like Nagato only she loved pain and she witnessed Nagato's death... Thus the end of team Jiraiya, saddest death ever.
Had to kill all of his class and was treated like a toy from the leader of the hidden mist
Um what! I'm really surprised he isn't on this list his parents died and then Chiyo lied to him and then he made parents out if puppets but it didn't fill the void and he just went to into a depressing and emotionless state
He had a really sad life with Chiyo lying to him and he went into a emotionless state and then at his death and when he fighted Kankuro he had that bit of heart left in him and his theme...that pulled my heartstrings :(
Yes on dis list! now
So he killed his comrades for a living and we can assume his clan and family are dead. He basically followed the rules and somehow ended up a criminal as if that doesn't suck, following the rules was bad.
Called a failure many times her father couldn't care less about her and didn't care if she died while being genin said a person like her is not needed in the hyuga almost killed from her own cousin, got hurt from her sis because she didn't want to harm her. Ignored from Naruto even though she almost died from pein. Always in the shadows. But after 8+ years everything turned okay.
True that hinata did have a sad childhood for a female character. like to be honest she is the 3 female character or 2nd with the saddest childhood, but with the males Nah... she would most likely be like no.20 counting the male character but probably the 2nd or 3rd or even 1st for the female. since tsunade lost her lover and her lil brother, and konan was an orphan the rest were okay.
Hinatas backstory is depressing, with her always being doubted by her father
Seriously, he born in a ninja world without any ninjustu control. He passed his life work hard
Being saved and being always left behind and fighting for a place that is sad
Know that sakura is more hated than loved by the fandom, is so sad.
Sakura never had a sad life I mean we are talking about people almost killing you and a person who is alone and never noticed by his village like what's so sad about her childhood I think she was one of the characters that had the best childhood getting called billboard brow isn't sad I mean such thing shouldn't even mean a sad childhood and getting helped allthe time is her problem because if she didn't jump in and fight she wouldn't get hurt and have to get saved
people hate her and that's sad
In Shippuden his life went down hill FAST, his sensei died and his dad died.
She was forced to be bitten by so much people and almost killed from all the chakra that was gone out of haer karins life was horrible and disgusting I mean the villagers killed her mother by finnishing all her chakra then after that it was her turn so talk about cruel
