Sarada Uchiha (Uchiha Sarada) is a kunoichi from Konohagakure's Uchiha Clan. She seems to have inherited traits from both her parents, like her mother's "Cha!" (Shannaro!") verbal tic and her father's aloofness and reluctance to acknowledge certain individuals, but she is not above commending them when they truly deserve it. Sarada is a central character of Naruto Gaiden: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring, searching for her estranged father while feeling she and Sakura are not related. Gaining her Sharingan in the process, but not having a good first impression on Sasuke, Sarada felt hurt and betrayed when she suspects being Karin's biological daughter as the two wear similar glasses. While Naruto helps her realize that family is not a matter of blood, Sarada later learns that Sakura is her biological mother as Karin explained that she was Sakura's midwife. Before leaving again, Sarada makes it her goal to become the next Hokage one day. Sarada finds Boruto annoying, but is later hinted to have a mutual crush on him. Sarada is voiced by Kokoro Kikuchi in Japanese. While in the English version, she is voiced by Laura Bailey in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, and by Cherami Leigh in all subsequent appearances.
Sarada is the only child of Sakura and Sasuke Uchiha. She was born while her pregnant mother was accompanying Sasuke on a mission, delivered by Karin in one of Orochimaru's hideouts; as such, there is no record of her birth in the Konoha Hospital. After that, the family returned to Konoha to raise Sarada, where the two helped her learn to walk. During her father's absence from the village while gathering information about Kaguya Otsutsuki, she became very ill with a high fever and afterwards, began wearing glasses, which unknowingly were a gift from Karin. Due to the importance of the mission, her father wasn't around much, and it is because of this that she did not know anything about him, including what he physically looked like as an adult.
As Sarada's parents continued to stay close with their own childhood friends, she ultimately got to know the kids of her parent's respective friends very well. On the day of Naruto's inauguration as the Seventh Hokage, she watched to ceremony besides her mother and ChoCho Akimichi.
Sarada's personality is derived from both her parents, although she takes more after her mother which is noted by Naruto. While Sarada is friendly, sociable, and polite, she has a fierce temper similar to her mother's and doesn't back down from an argument; she also inherited Sakura's verbal tic, "Shannaro!". Like her father, she retains an aloof and calm demeanor unless she is provoked. She has a close attachment to her parents, whom she affectionately refers to as "Papa" and "Mama", despite being apart from her father for many years. Unlike her parents in their childhood, Sarada has respected manners. In contrast to Sakura, she is never overconfident nor obsessed with boys, but modest and treats her classmates nicely, especially her friends Chocho Akimichi and Boruto Uzumaki. Despite Sarada's often bickering with Boruto and her rivalry with him, they are close friends and she cares about him greatly. Sarada even when as far as to encourage her father to make Boruto his student after she witnessed how much effort he put in when trying to learn the Rasengan. When Sasuke finally decided to accept Boruto as his student, Sarada became excited on Boruto's behalf. Sarada is also a curious child; regardless of finding Boruto annoying, she observes him around the village, watching from afar. She comes to the conclusion that they indeed have something in common (both of them want to spend more time with their fathers), displaying keen insight. While she appears polite and friendly, she easily has a fierce temper like her mother. Like many children her age, Sarada also has great respect for the seventh hokage Naruto Uzumaki. It was due to her admiration for Naruto that Sarada made it her goal to become hokage.
Sarada is a highly gifted kunoichi, inheriting her father Sasuke's prodigious talent and her mother Sakura's keen mind, leading Mitsuki to call her an elite genin. Accredited to her Uchiha lineage, her talents allowed her to rank third in her class and ultimately made her classmates expect her to easily pass the graduation exam. Likewise, she could single-handedly defeat dozens of Shin clones even before graduating.
Chakra and Physical Prowess Edit
From Sakura, Sarada inherited naturally advanced control over her chakra. Even before graduating from the Academy, she is able to collect chakra into her fists and release it on contact with a target to have a devastating effect, such as cratering the ground or sending an opponent flying into the distance.
Sarada is very knowledgeable in ninjutsu. Sarada can use Lightning and Yin Release, the former of which she can infuse into Fuma Shuriken to stun or knock back others.
Like many Uchiha, Sarada has an affinity for ninja tools and her speciality is shurikenjutsu, to which she had the highest marks in class. With said skill, she is able to throw her weapons quickly and with precision, even able to precisely deflect a projectile with one of her own launched kunai. She has also shown similar aim while devoid of sight, as while practising with her eyes closed, she was able to perfectly hit the target mat six times in a row.
Sarada awakened the Sharingan at age 11 out of excitement at being able to see her father after many years. While only just receiving it, she quickly adjusted to its power, giving her heightened visual perception to efficiently react to and avoid threats more easily, as well as the ability to dispel genjutsu. She can also perform genjutsu proficiently.
