The Uzumaki and Senju clans.

Added by Cerez365

The Uzumaki clan (うずまき一族, Uzumaki Ichizoku) was a prominent clan in Uzushiogakure. They were also distant relatives of the Senju clan and thus both clans were on good terms; an alliance that extended onto their hidden villages — Konohagakure and Uzushiogakure. The shinobi of Konoha integrated Uzushiogakure's symbol onto their uniforms and flak jackets as well as on the shoulders of their uniforms as a sign of friendship and goodwill between the two villages, and continue to do so to this day, in memory of their friendship even years after Uzushiogakure's destruction.

Members of this clan were very knowledgeable of fūinjutsu. This reputation earned them renown and fear worldwide, which eventually led to the destruction of Uzushiogakure, and the rest of the Land of Whirlpools during the era of Shinobi World Wars. With the destruction of their homeland, the survivors fled the country going into hiding scattered all around the world.[1]

The members of this clan possess incredible longevity and vitality seemingly inherited from their Senju ancestry. One notable case is that of Mito Uzumaki, who lived from before the founding of Konoha, to well into the term of the Third Hokage's reign. This vitality was the reason Kushina survived the extraction of her tailed beast, though she was greatly weakened.


  • The surname "Uzumaki" is a pun on "spiral" (渦巻), because it refers to a three-dimensional spiral, like a whirlpool or vortex. "Uzumaki" can also mean "whirlpool", in reference to the Naruto whirlpools (鳴門の渦潮), named after the city of Naruto.

  • All of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's jinchūriki have been members of the Uzumaki clan.

  • According to Tobi, bright red was a common hair colour among the members of the Uzumaki clan.The anime character Honoka was hinted to be a member of the Uzumaki clan. She had red hair and fūinjutsu talents akin to the clan. In the episode Aoba also found a book stating that they had found a survivor of a "certain clan of ninja".
