It can be really hard to figure out how tall animated characters are, because you often have limited information and only the appearances of other characters to judge by – unless the creators have released additional information about intended heights, or somebody within the franchise says something about it.
The height of Naruto Uzumaki changes depending on the character’s age as the story progresses. He starts at 4 foot 9 inches (1.45 meters), but as the series progresses, his height increases, and he reaches a height of 5 foot 6 inches (1.68 meters) by the end of Part 2.
By the time he reaches adulthood, most sources agree he is 5 foot 11 inches (1.80 meters), and that makes him one of the tallest characters in the series.
Naruto Uzumaki is an enormously popular character that many people are interested in learning more about, so it’s worth understanding more about his height, age, and weight – which is exactly what we’re going to do now!
How Tall Is Naruto Uzumaki?
In Part 1 of the animated series, Naruto Uzumaki is a 12 year old, and at this age, he is 4 foot 9 inches tall. That’s not far off the average height for a 12 year old American boy. By the time Part 2 (sometimes called Naruto Shippuden) starts, he’s in his late teenage years, and he’s about 5 foot 6 inches (1.68 meters).
Estimates of his adult height can vary slightly. Most places state that he is 5 foot 11 inches, and this is what appears in the databook. Some sources state that he is 6 foot 2 inches, but don’t offer a source for this. Whichever of these heights is accurate, he’s a little over the average height for an American man, although not by a massive amount.
Which estimate you think is accurate does affect whether Naruto is taller than his previous teammate Sasuke Uchiha, who is 6 feet (1.82 meters) when he reaches adulthood. If the 6 foot 2 inches is correct, Naruto Uzumaki is the taller of the two, but if he’s only 5 foot 11 inches, Sasuke Uchiha is the taller.
Since most sources agree that he’s 5 foot 11 inches, we’ll be using this as our estimate throughout this article.
How Old Is Naruto Uzumaki Compared With Other Important Characters?
We’ve already compared Naruto Uzumaki with Sasuke Uchiha, but what about with the other important characters?
Kakashi Hatake is about the same height as Naruto Uzumaki, listed at 5 foot 11 inches. However, it’s worth noting that some sources state that he is 1.81 meters, whereas Naruto Uzumaki is 1.80 meters. This makes very little difference (which is why their feet-and-inches height is listed as the same), but it does mean that Kakashi has a very slight edge in terms of height.
Konohamaru Sarutobi is about 5 foot 10 inches (1.78 meters), meaning he’s a little shorter, and the same applies to Orochimaru, who is also around 5 foot 10 inches.
It is interesting to note that most of the Naruto characters are a little taller than the average height for real people. This may be because tallness is seen as a desirable trait and many characters are depicted as tall for this reason. It might also be a coincidence. They aren’t significantly above the average.
How Old Is Naruto Uzumaki?
At the beginning of the series, in Part 1, Naruto Uzumaki is aged 12 to 13. Part 2 follows him from 15 to 17 years old. This explains the slight height gain, from 4 foot 9 to 4 foot 10.
In Boruto, Naruto is a fully grown man; it takes place 17 years after Shippuden, and he’s 32 years old in this. That makes sense when you consider that he is now almost 6 feet tall.
It can be difficult to pinpoint Naruto Uzumaki’s exact age at different points in the series, so here are a few key moments:
- He is 6 years old when he begins at the academy
- He is 12 years old when he graduates from the academy
- He is 13 years old when he does his Chunin exams
- He is 15 years old when Shippuden starts
- He is 17 years old when the War Arc ends
- He is 31 years old when he becomes Hokage
- He is 32 years old when Boruto begins
That’s quite a range of ages being portrayed throughout the show, which means it can be challenging to keep track of his age at any given time. A lot of the show takes place during his teenage years, but fans do get to see an adult Naruto Uzumaki too – which is a great thing!
How Much Does Naruto Uzumaki Weigh?
Of course, this depends on the character’s age at any given moment. It is thought that Naruto Uzumaki weighs between 88 and 112 lb (40 and 50.9 kg) throughout parts 1 and 2, although he might be as much as 121 lb (55 kg) by the end of part 2, reflecting his height gain.
It’s likely that he had a further weight gain for Boruto, reflecting his greater stature and age, but there are no estimates available for this. However, if he is 5 foot 11, he would probably be between 155 and 189 lb (70 and 85 kg), assuming he is around the average weight for his height.
His character appears slim, and given his active lifestyle, is probably within this range. There are no official sources for this, but it seems a reasonable estimate given the things we do know about adult Naruto Uzumaki’s height and physique.
As you can see, as an adult, Naruto Uzumaki is a little taller than the average American man, although as a child, he’s probably only about average. He’s tall compared to others in the show, but he is outstripped by Sasuke Uchiha, who stands about 1 inch taller at 6 feet tall. Naruto Uzumaki is portrayed at several different ages, from childhood to adulthood, and his final portrayal is as a 32-year-old man.
