This is mostly seen on internet forums and chat services such as IRC, where the Naruto series is a constant source of debate. Many narutards dress as their favorite character during conventions or festivals to display their metal head bands, which are worn by characters in the series as a sign of gang affiliation. One characteristic of a narutard is that they will wear just a head band over their street clothes and tell everyone that they are cosplaying. Serious cosplayers who wear costumes that cost hundreds of dollars in raw materials and took weeks to construct generally consider narutards to be anywhere from merely ignorant to downright insulting.
With the license acquisition of Naruto in early 2005 by ShoPro Entertainment, many narutards spawned numerous forum discussions debating the impact of the deal, from the legality of trafficking amateur subtitled copies of the title (something which should be pretty obvious, especially once American distribution rights had been acquired) to a grass-roots petition begging Cartoon Network and ShoPro / Viz to retain the full integrity of the anime during its adaptation into English. However, as with many Japanese series adapted into English, there are legal and other issues which often make it difficult if not impossible to produce a rendition faithful enough to appease purists.
Most narutards are, unsurprisingly, also purists when it comes to adapting Naruto into English. Allegedly, a few narutards boasted of their intention to engage in physical vandalism, DDoS, and other assaults toward ShoPro and Cartoon Network. Other alleged proposals included a petition and hunger strike camping out in front of these companies’ offices
Narutards usually didn’t read the manga or watch the Japanese version of it. They usually fantasize about yaoi/yuri pairings that are unbelievable, like if this one guy kissed this other guy and married each other.
Also, if one is a Narutard, they are most likely to post definitions here on Urban Dictionary about their most loved characters and most hated characters.
person 2:I LOVE SASUKE SO MUCH I CHANGED MY LAST NAME TO UCHIHA!
person 3:IF I DON’T WATCH NARUTO SOON IM GONNA DIE!
person 1&2:WOAH! *takes out a kunai* here you go *hands over kunai*
person 3:WE ARE SUCH A NARUTARDS!
Narutard: -kills random dude with kunai- “Bastard!”
Symptoms of narutardation are:
~walls covered in Naruto Posters
~Own 3 or more Naruto Plushie/dolls
~Enjoy cosplaying Naruto characters
~Find yourself randomly babbling on and on about Naruto scenes nobody else cares about
~Wearing your Ninja head protector/akatsuki cloak/ etc ALL THE TIME.
Bleach fangirl: omg, doesn’t she EVAR wash that cloak?
Reborn fangirl: I dunno, but that sand village headband is just about to fall apart >.>
Narutard: HEY! did you guys see that new episode of Naruto? ugh, the english dub sucks, but i hate reading english subs. ANYWHO Naruto TOTALLY kicked Kiba’s a$$ in the chuunin exams *continues*
@find Naruto 1999
Can someone send me naruto 1999?
which bot has naruto 1999?
When does naruto GT come out?
They own every headband from every vllage on Naruto (apparently a “bargain” on eBay, until you point out the postage was more than the actual product.) Can’t sleep without their Itachi plushie and village of the leaf wallscroll. They run useless petitions on the web, trying to bring down the dubbed version of Naruto, and to get him to stop saying “Belive it!” and instead saying “Dattebayo”. Both phrases will get annoying if repeated over and over! What does it matter which one is used???
Oh, and let’s not assume all they do is sit inside watching poorly lip-synced AMVs and wanking off to yaoi. Hell no! That’s not nearly annoying enough! They have to inflict themselves on the community! Dancing around their front gardens, kicking trees and announcing to passer-bys “I’m agonna join the ANBU!” I once saw a lad, about a year or two older than me, out in the street place his hands together and yell “Shadow Clone Jutsu!” an actually look surprised when nothing happenned.
They are so very deluded it frightens me. If you look at certain forums, you will find countless fangirls fawning over, I dunno, Kiba or something, and fanboys nosebleeding over naked pics of Hinata, drawn by some 50 year old.
I am not anti-Naruto, it just annoys me how stoopid people can really be. All narutards need rounding up and putting in a giant blender.
Narutard 2: NOT AS HAWT AS GAARA LIKE OMG I SO WANT TO RAPE HIM!!!!!11
