|~ Sakura reconfessing her love for Sasuke|
Sakura Uchiha (née Haruno) is the tritagonist of the Naruto franchise and one of the main supporting characters in the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime/manga series. She is a chūnin-level kunoichi of Konohagakure, a talented medical-ninja, and a member of Team Kakashi. She is also Sasuke Uchiha's wife and the mother of Sarada Uchiha.
She is voiced by Chie Nakamura in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Kate Higgins in the English version of the anime, the latter of whom also voiced C.C., and both who also currently voice Wave the Swallow.
As a little girl, Sakura was insecure and highly self-conscious about her large forehead; covering it with her bangs. It was not until she met Ino, who defended her from bullies and became her friend, did she becomes more self-confident. However, while Sakura was noted for being an honor student for her scholastic intelligence in the Academy, she became narcissistic as she was more interested in her appearance and Sasuke as opposed to practicing her ninja skills. Because of this, she found Naruto Uzumaki's advances and attempts to gain her attention irksome, calling him childish and foolish, citing his lack of a family as being a reason he was such an annoyance to everyone in the village.
Sasuke pointed out that this was because Sakura never experienced loss in her life and this couldn't understand himself to Naruto, prompting her to look at things from Naruto's perspective in an effort to understand her teammates. Over time, Sakura became more mature as she developed a mutual friendship with her teammates. As her core, Sakura is compassionate, determined, and courageous, willing to sacrifice herself and combat those she knows to be superior to her to defend her team. She has shown that despite her being overcritical, overbearing, and blunt at times, especially with Naruto, she can be supportive of her friends. By Part II, Sakura displayed that she doesn't back down from a fight, noting that she inherited her master's contempt for losing. Sakura can also be reckless, due to her desire to catch up in strength with Naruto and Sasuke, her overprotectiveness of them, and her need to prove her worthiness as a ninja, which often leads her to impulsively attack her opponents and get rescued by her comrades.
After Sasuke left the village, she becomes determined to bring him back, but eventually comes to accept that Naruto is the only one who can do anything about Sasuke and decides to put her faith in both of them after seeing Naruto's resolve to bring Sasuke back no matter what. During the Fourth Shinobi World War, when Sasuke returned to fight alongside the Allied Shinobi Forces, Sakura, although happy he was back, was confused about his motives for assisting the Allies. This was confirmed with his intention to start a revolution through destruction and rebirth. Sakura tried to get Sasuke to return home, proclaiming her love for him once more, only to be silenced with genjutsu by Sasuke. Ultimately, after Naruto and Sasuke's final clash, the latter, having been redeemed, apologized to Sakura for all he had put her through. Despite her slight hesitation, she tearfully forgave him. After a couple of years, Sakura convinced Sasuke to let her accompany him on his traveling, during which they got married, she quickly became pregnant with his child, and she gave birth to their daughter, Sarada. While Sasuke spends several years away on a top-secret mission, Sakura remained supportive of his duties and is content with her marriage and family.
After becoming a mother, Sakura is shown to be very loving and caring to her daughter, Sarada; this is seen when Sarada had no problem telling her mother about her feelings about Boruto and her father. That doesn't mean she doesn't get angry at her daughter, as when Sarada questioned the validity of her marriage, Sakura responded by smashing the ground. Seeing her daughter was acting out of sadness rather than anger, Sakura apologized and reassured Sarada that he father would be home soon. Sakura is very protective of her family, as she became enraged when Shin attempted to kill her husband and daughter. During Sasuke's absence, Sakura adopted Itachi's habit of poking Sarada in the forehead like Itachi always did with Sasuke. Sakura also has deep pride for her daughter and didn't hesitate to loudly cheer for Sarada from the audience during the Chunin Exams, even though she embarrassed Sarada. She also demonstrates loyalty to Sasuke, which is seen when she pretended to be a helpless hostage to trick Shin into revealing information about his plans on Sasuke's behalf. However, Sakura retians some of her childish antics, such as expecting to receive a kiss from Sasuke but was left disappointed when he comically declined her.
Naruto and Sakura remain as close friends for the rest of their lives and develop a bond that mirrors that of a brother and sister. Sakura went as far as to encourage Hinata to knit a scarf for Naruto as a way to confess her love to him and offered Naruto advice on his feelings for Hinata. Sakura is close to Naruto and Hinata's children, Boruto and Himawari, as both refer to her as "Aunt Sakura".
Sakura had long hair. Sakura has bright pink hair, green eyes, and fair skin. Sakura was often bullied due to her rather large forehead hence her nickname of "Billboard Brow". In Part I, Sakura wore a red qipao dress with white circular designs, with or without sleeves, with a zipper, tight dark green shorts, and a forehead protector which she used to accentuate her face.
Sakura's relationship with Sasuke plays a critical role in the series and is, by far, the most significant relationship in her life. Sakura has had a crush on Sasuke since she first saw him during their days in the Academy when they were children, rooted from his good looks and his calm, collected attitude. Despite knowing he was popular among all the girls at the Academy, including her best friend Ino, Sakura vowed to win him over and grew her hair long after hearing a rumor that Sasuke liked girls with long hair. After being placed on the same team, Sakura was overjoyed and spent more time trying to win his affection rather than focusing on her ninja training. However, Sasuke had a low opinion about her due to her immaturity and inconsideration for others, especially for Naruto. After he called her annoying for criticizing Naruto for being an orphan, Sakura decided Sasuke was right and she made attempts to be nicer to Naruto. During their time as Team 7, Sakura continued trying to impress Sasuke and blush at anything he said or did that she found attractive of him. However, her infatuations began to change when she believed Sasuke had been killed by Haku and cried over his body before reacting with relief that he was okay. As she started to realize that Sasuke was actually a person with imperfections and was suffering physically and mentally from his past and desire for revenge, Sakura became very caring and worried for his well-being, and made it a priority to help him as much as possible. This allowed Sakura's feelings for Sasuke to grow stronger and she genuinely fell in love with him, to the point where she is able to know his true self; she instantly knew he wasn't himself as he was under the Cursed Seal of Heaven and convinced him to stop his rampage on the ninjas who hurt her earlier by hugging Sasuke and pleading for him to stop. It seemed that Sasuke started to develop romantic feelings for Sakura as well as he noticed how much she really cared about him and he was willing to risk his life to protect her because he didn't want to lose someone dear to him again, and even exhibited jealousy when Sakura learned Naruto saved her from Gaara. Ultimately, thinking his bonds with his friends made him weak, Sasuke decided to sever those bonds and defect from Konoha and Sakura, who had suspected this, met with him at the village's gate and they talked about their times together. When Sasuke refused to change his mind, Sakura broke down and confessed that she loved him and wanted to join him if she could make him happy. Although touched, Sasuke feigned indifference, called her annoying, and knocked her out to keep her from alerting the village but not before thanking her for everything. Over the next three years, Sakura trained with Tsunade to grow strong enough to where she can help Naruto find Sasuke. When they reunited, Sakura was shocked when Sasuke denounced any connection to her and was willing to attack him to bring him back to Konoha. Sakura still held deep care for Sasuke to where she didn't tolerate anyone bad-mouthing him. However, as Sasuke became a dangerous international criminal, Sakura became distraught when her comrades concluded that killing Sasuke was the only way to prevent him from starting a war among the nations. Sakura attempted to deal with Sasuke on her own but realized not only was she outmatched by him but she couldn't bring herself to do it, which almost caused Sasuke to kill her twice and this left Sakura visibly shaken in horror. With Naruto's resolve to save Sasuke no matter what, Sakura decided to put all of her faith in Sasuke and Naruto of fulfilling her dream of seeing Team 7 together again. As the war was announced, Sakura was uneasy that she and her comrades would likely be fighting against Sasuke and she also rejected a fellow comrade's love confession because she was in love with someone else, who was revealed to be Sasuke. She was shocked that Sasuke was offering to help the Allied Forces in the war and, when Sai asks about Sakura's feelings about Sasuke's arrival, she smiled and said that she was happy that he was back and that she trusted him. Sai noticed that her words were sincere, but her smile was fake . This was confirmed when Sasuke announced his intent to start a revolution through destruction and rebirth. Sakura tried once more for Sasuke to return home by telling him she loved him but Sasuke knocked her out with genjutsu and said he found no reason for them to love each other. Kakashi counters that Sakura wasn't trying to win his love and she was suffering from loving him. Afterwards, a redeemed and guilt-ridden Sasuke apologized to Sakura for everything he put her through, to which Sakura reacted with hesitation but tearfully accepted. Before leaving for his journey of redemption, Sakura and Sasuke spent some time together and began a relationship, leading Sasuke to truly fall in love with her. Sakura asked to accompany him on his journey but he declined and promised he would return to her. A couple of years later, Sakura did join him on his traveling, during which they got married and she quickly became pregnant with his child, and gave birth to their first and only daughter, Sarada. Despite Sasuke being away from his family for years, his and Sakura's marriage turned out to be a good one. Sakura remained truly in love with Sasuke for the rest of her life and she is very supportive of his ninja duties.
Sakura's relationship with Naruto is a second significant bond she shares in the series. Having known each other since childhood due to being classmates at the Academy, Sakura had a low opinion of Naruto and though of him as annoying due to his tendency to pull off pranks. While she knew that Naruto had a crush on her, she was unaware for a long time that Naruto was actually deeply in love with her and that Naruto was holding back his feelings due to her feelings for Sasuke, whom he felt needed Sakura the most. When they are were assigned to Team 7, Sakura was disappointed while Naruto was delighted, and she went as far as to criticize Naruto for his actions by blaming him having no parents. This angered Sasuke, who was also an orphan, and his criticism of her caused her to realize how much she hurt Naruto's feelings and decided to make attempts to be nicer to him. During their time as Team 7, while Sakura was still annoyed with Naruto and vented her anger at him for his immature actions, her attempts to befriend Naruto turned out to be sincere, to the point where she felt sorry for him when he was struggling in the first test of the Chunin Exams and was willing to forfeit to help him, but Naruto vowed to never give up, which inspired her to give her best in her fight against Ino. Sakura also came to support Naruto's dream of becoming Hokage despite her earlier claims it was a stupid dream for someone as childish as him. Naruto is very considerate and protective of Sakura, and he often risks his life to save her from danger, which she is very grateful for and she often tries to find ways to repay him for everything he does for her. By the time Sasuke defects, Sakura had come to view Naruto as a dear friend and a brother-figure. In her despair of being unable to stop Sasuke, she went to Naruto and pleaded with him to bring Sasuke back because he was the one person who could do such a task. Despite his own feelings for her, Naruto made a "promise of a lifetime" to Sakura that he would bring Sasuke back no matter what. When he ultimately fails but still vowed to keep his promise, this inspired Sakura to become Tsunade's apprentice so she can get strong enough to help Naruto find Sasuke. After three years of separation, Sakura was amazed of how mature and grown up Naruto looked but was still annoyed with his perverted and idiotic actions. Some people suspected that Sakura was a little attracted to Naruto after this but she continued treating him as a best friend. After learning he is the Nine Tails jinchuriki and is targeted by the Akatsuki, Sakura realized the validity of the hardships Naruto went through as a child and she became protective of him, and willing to do anything to help him as much as possible. When Sai told her how much Naruto loved her, she was left in shock which then turned into despair as she came to believe the promise Naruto made to her was making him suffer. She tried freeing him from this promise by telling him that she loved him, but Naruto didn't believe her because he knew how much she loved Sasuke. It was later revealed that Sakura indeed lied because she was planning to kill Sasuke without getting Naruto involved. Thankfully, Naruto was able to save Sakura from being killed by Sasuke and his vow to save Sasuke at all costs gave Sakura some hope in having Team 7 together again. Overtime, Sakura came to believe that Naruto would in fact become Hokage and was willing to do anything to help him achieve his dream. Once Sasuke reciprocated her feelings and Naruto was developing feelings for Hinata, Sakura offered him advice on love and how to confess to Hinata. As the years passed, Sakura and Naruto remained close friends.
Kakashi is Sakura's teacher from Team 7. Being the only girl on the team, Kakashi seemingly had a soft spot for Sakura due to him unwilling to let her directly confront Haku and Zabuza, and he was always near her during combats. Kakashi tried to reassure Sakura that naruto and Sasuke would make up when Sasuke forced Naruto into a battle, but when Sasuke defected and Sakura was left in despair, Kakashi blamed himself for being an ineffective teacher. He also condemned himself for "lying" to Sakura when he knew the possibility of Sasuke betraying them was high. Kakashi considers Sakura to be a very simple girl who can easily be understood, such as when he immediately knew that she was lying when she told Naruto she loved him. Initially, Kakashi was unwilling to kill Sasuke but after saving Sakura from being killed, Kakashi was enraged and told Sakura he would deal with Sasuke so that Sakura wouldn't have to take on such a heavy burden. Kakashi has a high opinion of Sakura due to her powerful strength and intelligence, but he is still protective of her, even going as far as to criticize Sasuke for ignoring the pain he was putting Sakura through.
Ino is Sakura's former best friend, although they reconcile after the Chunin Exams. They first met when they were children; Sakura was bullied for her large forehead and Ino became her first friend after teaching her how to show more of her cute features. They were best friends for a while until Sakura announced to their friends that she had a crush on Sasuke and was surprised when she learned Ino also liked Sasuke. Because of this, both girls ended their friendship so they can compete for his affection. Although avoiding each other sometimes, they were matched against each other in the Chunin Exams, which they used as a way to see not only who was the strongest but who deserved Sasuke more. At the end, the match ends with both knocking the other out and the two reconcile but still intended to fight each other for Sasuke. While still being rivals in some sorts, they became friends again and were often helping each other in combat and on personal matters, often related to Sasuke's troubles. As adults, after Sakura marries Sasuke and Ino marries Sai, the two are more friendly with each other and considered best friends again.
Tsunade is Sakura's superior and teacher. Both are similar in personalities in regards to their short tempers and tendency to be blunt and criticize others. Tsunade cares a lot for Sakura, after the girl came to her on her own accord to ask Tsunade to take her as a student, which Tsunade agreed because she knew Sakura was determined to help Naruto find Sasuke at all costs. Sakura holds deep respect for Tsunade for being the Fifth Hokage but, like so many others, she is afraid of Tsunade's temper and often warns others to be careful how they speak to her. During the war, as Sakura proved herself as a worthy successor of Tsunade's, it was believed that Sakura would surpass her teacher.
Sarada is Sakura's daughter with Sasuke. Sakura loves her daughter dearly and she sees a lot of Sasuke in Sarada. After Sasuke left home for his mission, Sakura raised their daughter on her own and the two have a close relationship. Sarada had no problem telling her mother her feelings about boys and particularly about Boruto. However, as sarada got older and began questioning her parents' marriage due to Sasuke being away for so many years, Sakura reacted angrily but then she apologized for yelling at her. Over the years, as Sarada asked questions about her father, Sakura always told her that Sasuke was an important mission and he would come home once it was over. While she was speaking the truth, Sakura didn't explain what kind of mission Sasuke was on because of an agreement she made with Sasuke to keep it a secret out of concern any knowledge of it spreading and bringing threats that would endanger her and Sarada. As Sarada thought Sasuke didn't care about them, Sakura was always quick to insist that Sasuke loved them both and he was protecting them. Although annoyed with Sarada running away to find the answers to her questions, Sakura didn't blame her because she felt she and Sasuke should have explained the situation to Sarada earlier. When Sarada believed Sakura was not her real mother, she was enraged but after calming down, she realized she still loved her mother. Sakura later admits she was told of Sarada's doubts and confirms Sarada is her biological daughter, also expressing relief that Sarada is alright and joy when Sasuke tells Sarada that she is the proof of his love for Sakura. After this, Sakura and Sarada's relationship improves significantly, and Sarada finds it amusing to tease her mother by telling her how happy she gets when Sasuke comes home. Sakura also has deep pride for her daughter, but her ways of expressing her pride for Sarada often embarrasses her daughter.
