Like the title says, where did Mr. Kishimoto got the idea of the character personality, backstory, name etc.?


According to Sasuke Uchiha article on Wikipedia, Sasuke's name comes from Sarutobi Sasuke, a fictional ninja featured in Japanese children's stories. Kishimoto also once said that Sasuke's character was influenced by Hiei from YuYu Hakusho.
