~ Rin's final words before she died.

Rin is a minor supporting character from the anime and manga Naruto. She was the female student of Minato Namikaze's squad along with young Kakashi and Obito Uchiha. Rin was also Obito's childhood friend and love interest.

She is voiced by Haruhi Nanao in the Japanese version who also voiced Mai Valentine in Yu-Gi-Oh!. While in the English version, she is voiced by Stephanie Sheh who voiced Hinata.


She was a chunin level kunoichi and with medical ninja skills, and her team participated in the Third Shinobi World War.

Sometime later, she was killed by Kakashi, who pierced her chest with a chidori. She actually committed sucide after she was kidnapped and had the three-tails sealed in her body, turning her into a Jinchūriki. She also had a forbidden curse tag implanted in her so the tailed beast would be let loose as soon as her and Kakashi returned to the Hidden Leaf Village.

Rin jumps in front of Kakashi's chidori and is killed.

To prevent this from happening, Rin jumped in front of Kakashi's chidori when he was fighting shinobis from the mist that were attacking them. Kakashi was traumatized by this event that would haunt him for years. Obito also witnessed everything, and thought that Kakashi had betrayed him killing Rin, so he was consumed by grief and rage.

Rin's kidnapping was in reality part of Madara's plans to turn Obito into his pawn, so that he could accomplish his goals. Madara knew about Obito's feelings for Rin, and that it would be a good way to manipulate Obito to follow him if he was feeling betrayed and had the desire to take revenge on the ones who harmed her.


  • She can be seen as a parallel of Hinata and Sakura. However, although Rin was in love with Kakashi, she wasn't an obsessed fangirl like Sakura, and like Hinata she took her training very seriously.
  • She was the first member of Team Minato to truly die while Minato dies right after her, and Obito would die several years later.
  • Rin's appearance reminds members of the Inuzuka Clan because of the purple paint on both her cheeks.
  • She had only one video game appearance so far, in the story mode of the game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations.
  • Rin's Death parallels the same way Kakashi killed Haku (Naruto)
