    Which characters would you consider to be the most distant and je n'ais si quoi among parallels?

    For example, there is Bee and Deidara, who paralleled each otger by fleeing home to master their passions

    Suigetsu, Killer Bee and Gaara. Like Naruto, all share a birthday that adds to 20 like Naruto.


    2/18, 5/15, and 1/19

    The fact that you know their birthdays, nevermind noticing the similarity, is repworthy

    I'll keep it as it is as a symbol of all I've learned as a member of NF

    Also, does Iruka have any parallels? Such that you could say that person is the Iruka of . . .?

    That's what happens when you own the databooks!

    Kankuro shares his birthday with Killer Bee, but he isn't a Naruto parallel. I think.


    In the 4th databook, the natures of the characters are done. Some of them are seem weird, but then a lot of them match their astrology signs.

    Example: Suigetsu manages to have wind as a nature of his even though he never has been seen using it. Well, he's an Aquarius, an AIR sign.

    3 major exceptions I found so far, are Sakura, Karin, and Ino. All have Water/Earth. In Ino and Karin cases, their birthdays are close to a water or earth sign, so that could be it. Dunno about Sakura...


    I think Hinata may also be an exception.

    Apparently, Itachi is a Gemini, which is widely considered as the brainiest among the Zodiac Signs. Kurenai apparently is also a Gemini, and both of these guys' specialty is Genjutsu - which require massive amount of intellect - according to Jiraiya.

    Kishi really thought out this subtle shit in Pt. 1.

    We scream retcon here but...that dude knows his shit.

    Holy jeez, I never noticed that! Cool. Not sure why those two characters in particular get parallels, but it shows Kishi wanted to subtly link them and saw them as similar in some way? I guess Obito also got taken in by an older, strong shinobi who got outcast from his village for rebelling. And he also acts cold and emotionless while wearing his mask, like a tool should. And the visual references draw a link between Naruto's first big foe and his last, to show his growth over the series.

    Oh yeah and Obito and Izuna also share the same birthday, blood type, and had almost the exact same height and weight (tho Obito's latest given measurements are different)

    Guess Kishi was planning to do something there but gave up on it. Heck, because of this shit, before the reveal I honestly thought it was gonna be Obito with half of his face as Izuna :catskully
