Do any of the characters from the Naruto filler arcs or movies show up again in the main series, or they are just strictly made for the fillers and movies?

I was watching Shippuden season 1 and at some point the opening and closing songs had scenes from the Priestess Shion movie, or the first Naruto Shippuden movie.

  • They are just made for those filler/movies, but they do appear in the story as, something you can call, easter eggs. They also don't interact with the story nor characters. They are just there as extras. Commented Jan 4, 2017 at 16:06
  • @AkiraMahisaseru Oh. You are alive. Yay! 😁😁. And okay. Thanks. Just wondering. So they do appear in the main shady occasionally right? Any examples?

  • @AkiraMahisaseru Whoa... Take it easy, love. You are forgiven even though nothing held against you. Lol. I take you are fine then. 😉 but anyway, examples of the extras?

Utakata was introduced during the so-named Tsuchigumo Kinjutsu arc, but he eventually makes his way in the main storyline as a reanimated ninja fighting in the Great Shinobi War.

It could be conjectured that he wasn't a filler character, but until Naruto chapter 515 at the earliest, the Six-Tails host was not identified by name.

In this picture, Utakata is second from the left.
