Their RelationshipEdit

Part IIEdit

NK - encounter

First Encounter

Upon getting rescued and taken to Konoha for questioning, Karin takes notice of the Naruto's prescence. Upon the moment, she notes to herself that he is the complete opposite of her team leader. Even stating that his chakra is bright and warm. However, she becomes frightened when she notices the "Dark chakra"(due to him being Kurama's jinchuuriki).

Later in the Confining the Jinchurikin Arc, when Karin is being questioned in the Konoha Headquarters, she thinks to herself that all the people of Konoha seem to be cheerful and warm; just like Naruto.


  • Karin noted that Naruto's chakra was "warm".
  • Both are some of the last remaining members of the Uzumaki clan.

Among the FansEdit

NaruKarin is not very popular in the Naruto Fandom, but does have a number of supporters. It is most likely supported due to the fact that both are the only survivors of the Uzumaki Clan. Some fans support this pairing because of Karin's personal opinion on Naruto. It is a rival to SasuKarin, NaruSaku, NaruHina, and SuiKa.
