Top 10 Reasons to Hate Naruto

Okay, I admit I used to like this anime. Now I think it sucks. It's my opinion so deal with it.

The Top Ten

1 Filler episodes

Although I like Naruto, this I can agree with. Naruto has like 100 episodes of pure fillers. - Goku02

2 Stupid characters

Naruto himself is dumb and the female characters are left being less powerful, on top of being disrespected

Yeah, I'd respect the show more if the female character were handled like the male ones, I won't say it's sexiest or intentionally tried to misogynistic. But it's definitely one of it not the most problematic aspect of the show. The women are treated with little regard, confirm to stereotypes and fanservice. The only decent one was hinata and like ALL THE LEASING WOMEN IN NARUTO. She unrelatically obsessed over a dude and that was pretty much as she was. She was in love with Naruto and NEVER explained why. And she held onto the hope he'd change when he CLEARLY was in love with somebody else. Anyway, it's a problem in Japanese anime and manga in general. So Naruto isn't the only offender but it is it's most infamous.

Yeah they're overpowered and woman ninjas are treated lower than male ninjas.

Just a few of them. - Goku02

3 It has a terrible fanbase

Usually full of jerks and whinning people, while I can appreciate the first part of the manga, the fanbase is terrible.

Narutards are cancer

4 Sakura is a horrible person

Yep, I hate Sakura, all she cares about is Sasuke. I bet she is Serena's role model, because Serena acts almost like Sakura. "Sasuke! Sasuke! " is basically what she mostly says.


And it's worse since she's the tritagonist! She ruins the series every time her face comes on screen. There are much better female characters, so why did the author choose Sakura to be the main female? -_- - Goku02

5 Sasuke is a jerk

Sasuke is the epitome of badly written characters. Actually the entire show and the manga are written pretty terribly, but Sasuke (in my humble opinion) is the worst out of all of 'em. Firstly he's a stupid little emo with family issues. I don't know about you guys but when I think of ninjas I don't think of edge-lord emos with a chip on their shoulders.

#1 Gary Stu probably even more than naruto, & that’s sad because the series is named ‘naruto.’ KM said sasuke is his favorite, all the girls are thirsty for his d (even when he’s a wanted ninja planning to destroy their village), he was forgiven too easily (at least Orochimaru did stuff to repent for what he’s done), last of his special clan with an ability that can make it so he can easily copy peoples attack... naruto earned his popularity with the girls. Sasuke should have lost it for what he done, but nope mr Gary edgelord stu never will.

6 It is repetitive

I mean, there are more animes with more pulp, less water.

7 Naruto is perverted

Perverted characters are almost unavoidable in animes, really. - Goku02

8 It is boring

Not always. - Goku02

9 Sexism

Basically all women are weaker then the men and given lesser powers and abilities, there's barely a woman who actually plays promote within the story and isn't there just for fanservice or conveinence

Yeah, I totally agree...

10 The strength levels of characters are all over the place. Sometimes it's unclear who's stronger than who

Okay, so at one point Kakashi is clearly weaker than Orochimaru. Later on he's able to hold his own against Tobi. Then he becomes the Sixth Hokage. Does that make him stronger than Orochimaru now, one of the legendary Sannin? The strength levels of characters are all over the place throughout the anime. It's unclear who's stronger than who.

The Contenders

11 Treating characters badly

Orochimaru was introduced as the perfect antagonist. At one point it was said that no one in the Leaf Village could defeat him. He killed the Third Hokage. Yet later on in the show, as Kishimoto introduces new antagonists, he makes Orochimaru easily defeatable and completely ruins his character, letting Sasuke and Itachi kill him off effortlessly despite him being one of the Sannin.

The same thing happened with Sasori. He was introduced as a very powerful character and his abilities were hyped up, saying that his puppets could take out an entire nation. Yet he struggles and eventually gets defeated easily by Sakura and an old lady, Chiyo, in what is an extremely disappointing fight. He even lets them win at the end.

The same thing happened with Itachi, letting Sasuke win. Tobi revealed later that Itachi could have tried harder if he was really trying to kill Sasuke.

The same thing happened with Danzo. He lost to Sasuke because he was saving up chakra to fight Tobi ...more

Sasori killed the Third Kazekage, who was the strongest in the village's history, and he still lost to Sakura and Chiyo of all people because of plot armor and letting them win.

12 It is full of cliches

Naruto- the stupid, optimistic, paragon who forgives every enemy unflinchingly
(Sound familiar like 95% of EVERY SHONEN MC EVER)

Sakura- the dizty tsundere whose ENTIRE CHARACTER surrounds a dude who emotionally abuses and ridicules her. Obsesses over being flat as if being flat is a crime(she's worse then Bella Swan)

Sasuke-the sulking whiny bad boy "who all the girls love" (FYI Naruto author whose name I don't care to remeber, do you REALLY THINK all women fall head over heels for emotionless violet jackasses like Sasuke) at first we was good but as all things good in Naruto it faded into obscurity.

I could go on and on about the predictiable, lazy, and downright annoying and degrading tropes that floods the cast of Naruto.

13 It's an anime

What...? - Goku02

14 Sasuke & Sakura ending up together made no sense

I heard sasuke left Sakura with a child and never returned. That would make sense, at least...

There was little hinting for naruhina at least (only girl Naruto opened up to about his insecurities is Hinata, '...but people like you, I really like! ' 'Where is Hinata? Is she watching? ' (Not Sakura, even though he had a crush on her...?) but sasuke showed absolutely no interest in her besides tolerating her more as a teammate. But of course the idiot had to achieve her goal too, as sasuke & Naruto did. It would b unfair otherwise. But the development of this pair is absolute c**p!

15 Plotholes

There are actually no plot holes that I am aware of, and I have watched and read all of the Naruto series from the original to Boruto. I can literally answer every question you ask.

16 Bad soundtrack

Prove it, please.

17 They killed off all the bad guys

I mean, sure, you can kill SOME of the bad ones, but seriously, did you have to destroy all of the Akatsuki, the SN4, Obito, Madara, Bakugou, if anything, they shouldve killed Sasuke's lil dumbass! (or Sakura). LIKE FR THOOO LISTEN! NARUTO IS NOW NOTHING WITHOUT THE ENEMIES! THIS IS ALSO WHY BORUTO SUCKS!

18 Naruto is a huge gary stu

This whole series is about Naruto getting acknowledged by everyone & their grandma and wanking Naruto endlessly. He is the Child of Prophecy for no discernible reason I can see. Seriously, what did Naruto accomplish that nobody else did? Peace? Never happened. Plus, peace is not only dependant on one person. Defeating Kaguya? Would have been impossible without Sasuke.

Naruto converts all of the villains with his Talk no Jutsu which is beyond lame and completely unrealistic. Really, Naruto going like "I totally had a sucky life, too" somehow makes all of the villains give up and place their hopes on someone who is unable to even formulate a plan on how he is going to solve their issues?

Naruto the fake underdog. He is an Uzumaki, son of the fourth Hokage, reincarnation of Ashura and has the strongest Bijuu. He gets bad grades. Boohoo. Who cares about grades? He learned a Forbidden Jutsu in a few hours! He only needed one week to learn the Rasengan! Yes, most of those ...more

19 The villain behind the villain
20 It tried to justify genocide

Genocide is a crime against humanity AND. YOU. DON'T. TRY. TO. JUSTIFY. IT. - Tuana123

21 Everyone is OP
22 Not enough black people
23 It's too long
24 The Last is a terrible end to the series

I like naruhina, but even as a naruhina story, it’s terrible. It makes Naruto a moron who only chased after Sakura for competition for sasuke, even though Ino, temeri, & sasuke’s other fangirls showed interest in him, yet Naruto never tried to get with them? Also they made him SO STUPID. “EH THERS A DIF BETWEEN LOVING SOMEONE LIKE FOOD & A PERSON? ” YES A FIVE YR OLD COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THAT! & Hinata is the typical DiD though out most the movie. In the manga, she became strong to hold her own to become the Hyuga princess. Yet she constantly did nothing to fight & always needed Naruto to rescue her. At least Sakura was able to knock out a bunch of enemies & never was a DiD (probably the only good thing why sasuke wasn’t around them, or that would’ve been different). Even when she attempted to go with toreri to rescue her sister herself, Hinata just gets mind controlled in the end, causing Naruto needing to rescue her & stop him. But that’s not even the worst part about ...more

25 Pointless red herrings that did jack to advance the plot

As much as narusaku sucks, there was no point in the parental red herring. It would be ok if Naruto’s mom told him to find a girl like her, but then his dad has to point out how Sakura reminds him of his wife? Pointless filler comment that was inserted in by the author. Tell me what did those pointless panels do for the story itself, besides “red herring & a laugh”? At least Yamato’s unfinished sentence foreshadowed sai’s guilt trip no jutsu, as it showed Sakura being upset being a burden, which ultimately sunk Narusaku. Yet, Kishi continued to beat on the dead horse with this pointless red herring here, instead of actually developing the actual soon to be canon pairings.
