Just a curious thought I had recently. Naruto has been in an awful lot of fights but I can't recall if he ever actually killed another person.

    I doubt it. Just like Fairy Tail and other similar series it's unlikely that the main hero would kill anyone, but an interesting thought never the less. – Izumi-reiLuLu Jul 13 '14 at 23:39
  • Naruto did kill Kakuzu and Pain however he did not kill any "human beings". – user7592 Jul 14 '14 at 0:11
  • I just found something that I suspect might confirm your question here – Izumi-reiLuLu Jul 14 '14 at 0:40
  • Intentionally no, Naruto never wanted to kill except for those enemies worth killing for. But, I bet he maimed innocent people unconsciously especially when he reluctantly controlled by the Cubi inside him. – maseru Jul 14 '14 at 4:44
  • He killed the girl with rinnegan in Blood Prison movie – Tanya von Degurechaff Jun 15 '16 at 5:38

Technically speaking, Naruto never landed the killing blow on anyone.

  • Haku, even though beaten by Naruto, jumped in front of Kakashi's Raikiri.
  • Kakuzu, hit directly by the Rasenshuriken, survived, and later killed by Kakashi.
  • Pain's bodies were already dead. Nagato, the living puppeteer, sacrificed himself after hearing Naruto's resolve, with the Rinne Tensei, and revived all the people of the village.

You could say that Naruto was a major cause in all of these people's death, but he did not directly kill any of them.

    He killed multiple white zetsus though ;) – Sahan De Silva Mar 24 '17 at 9:33
  • @SahanDeSilva he made them into tree, so not really dead – Ankit Sharma Feb 17 '19 at 6:46

There is someone I know. Yūra was defeated and killed by Naruto's Big Ball Rasengan. His corpse was later devoured by Zetsu.

    It can be argued that he was a sacrifice for the jutsu similar to the Reanimation Jutsu. – Arcane Jul 14 '14 at 8:47

    Yes, but it is explicitly stated in the wiki that Yūra was defeated and killed by Naruto. – Nara Shikamaru Jul 14 '14 at 9:54
  • Yet the body used in the jutsu already died, so it was a living corpse. – Dimitri mx Jul 14 '14 at 10:01
  • A 'living sacrifice' means that Naruto actually killed him but under Memory-Concealing Manipulative Sand Technique of Sasori and Shapeshifting Technique from Pain. It is not the technique from the two (Sasori and Pain) that cause his death. – Nara Shikamaru Jul 14 '14 at 10:14

I know that this thread is old, but I just want to point out that Naruto did kill Aoi Rokusho with the Rasengan. Aoi Rokusho is a rogue ninja who ran away from the Leaf Village with the sacred Thunder Sword that belonged to the 2nd Hokage. Naruto attacked the Thunder Sword that Aoi sensei was using and that sent Aoi sensei plummeting down the cliff, which according to Aoi himself, is a fatal fall. This was during their mission to the Land of Tea (*ep 106 in Naruto). I think that's the closest thing Naruto has to killing somebody on his own without any variables.


Hiruko from will of fire was fatally wounded by Naruto's rasenshiruken

Not 100% sure if true but I watched th end part of the movie and it seems that he died from said blow

  • Can you provide proof of this? – kuwaly May 16 '17 at 2:08

I remember he killed Fuuka in one of the filler episodes by cutting her hair.
