The 101 Best Naruto Quotes You’ll Love

Naruto is undoubtedly one of the most popular anime series across the globe. The show itself is full of wise life lessons, epic fights, and relatable characters, making you deeply invested in it really fast. It comes as no surprise that such a long-running & meaningful series like Naruto would have plenty of deep quotes, right?

For people unfamiliar with the series, it’s set in the world of ninjas and follows the story of Uzumaki Naruto, a young aspiring ninja who is determined to become the leader of his village because his deepest wish is to get acknowledged & accepted by others.

Since Naruto is such a long-running anime with so many quotes and loyal fans (over 2 million on MAL), I chose to include only the most epic and memorable quotes. They are a source of inspiration, wisdom, and life lessons that other shows can only dream of offering. You truly have to be a genius to come up with a manga/anime like Naruto.

The holy shounen trinity (Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece) is considered undefeatable even though there are new contestants like Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer, or My Hero Academia. To replicate the same fame as the big three did, it takes more than your manga sales being off the charts. Just between us, with One Piece having sold more than 516 million copies and being the absolute king of manga sales in general and Naruto sitting at 6th place with over 250 million copies sold, it will still take some time, although Demon Slayer is close to reaching the same manga sales as Naruto with ~150 million sold copies.

That said, The Big Three will always stay the same because it refers to the shounen anime manga/shows from the same generation.
