In 1999, Naruto adapted to anime and split into Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. Subsequently, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations emerged as an extension. But even as Naruto shoots through multiple timelines, there’s a big twist to the ages of Naruto characters.
But for all we know, Naruto began his adventure from the Ninja Academy to his eventual coronation as the Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village.
But the interesting thing is, almost every edition lasted about a year, so Naruto shouldn’t be as old as you think. To that end, in my pursuit of discovering his age, I will do more mental math and estimates in this article.
I’ll take it from here, anyway, following his age line to this point. Shall we?
Naruto Uzumaki: In the Beginning
Naruto was about 11 years old when he was accepted into the Ninja Academy. This was the first edition of Naruto, the manga. Here Iruka Sensei, Shikamaru, Choji Akimichi and Kiba Inozuka befriended him.
While the Jinchūriki of Kyuubi nearly wiped out the Hidden Leaf Village, Naruto battled loneliness while the residents of Konoha Village tactfully evaded him. Because of this, he was deliberately drawing people’s attention to break his loneliness.
And since this edition lasted a year, it’s safe to say that Naruto was about 12 years old at the end of this phase.
How old is Naruto in Shippuden?
After meeting Jiraiya, Naruto returned to the Hidden Leaf Village as a transformed and mature man. His quest was to still bring Sasuke to the village.
His journey with Jiraiya lasted about two and a half years. So we can imagine that he was about 14 to 15 years old at the start of Shippuden.
This edition is peppered with interesting events: their meeting with the Akatsuki organization; the death of many characters; the pursuit and discovery of Sasuk, and oh! The Deadly Fourth Shinobi War. There was also the battle for the Hokage of Konoha Village – the showdown between Naruto and Sasuke.
If these eventful encounters lasted about a year, then Naruto’s age was about 17 at the end of Naruto Shippuden.
How old was Naruto in Naruto the Last?
Since the events of the 4th Great Ninja War spawned this episode two years later, Naruto was 19 years old in Naruto the Last.
But at the end of the movie, lasting about a year, Naruto declared his love for Hinata. After that delicious kiss under the moon, the credits show various images and scenes from the future of their wedding ceremony.
Now, Naruto was about 20 years old when he took Hinata as his bride.
How old was Naruto when he became the Hokage?
The Hokage of the Hidden Leaf handed over his title to his apprentice, the star icon of all ninjas – Naruto.
This took place 5 years after his marriage to Hinata, so he was about 25 years old as the Hokage.
How old is Naruto in Boruto?
Naruto was about 32 years old. Here’s how: Naruto’s Next Generations began 7 years after Naruto became Hokage and 16 years after the 4th Shinobi War.
This event is centered around Boruto Uzumaki, the son of Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyûga. Well, here he learns well about the world of the ninjas.
Thanks to him, Kawaki, Sarada, and Mitsuki, Naruto is said to have died out due to the tough Isshiki sealing him.
Since Boruto: Naturo’s Next Generations started in 2020, and Naruto clocked 32 in that time, it is safe to conclude that Naruto is currently 34 years old.
So, from here and now (at the time of writing this article), you can keep track of Naruto’s age as the Boruto manga progresses. By the way, don’t forget to jump on this page to access our latest posts.
