Name: Gaara of the Desert
Rank: Kazekage (5th)
Teammates: Jiraiya, Orochimaru
Family: 4th Kazekage (father), Kankurou (elder brother), Temari (elder sister)
Idol: Uzumaki Naruto
Following his fateful fight with Uzumaki Naruto, Gaara has found a new idol in his former opponent and proceeded to become ‘Good Guy A’.
If there is a ‘Best Achievement Award’ in the Naruto world, it will definitely go to our huggable 5th Kazekage of the Hidden Sand Village.
From the terrifying sand monster Shukaku bearer who tried to smite Konoha, Gaara has come a long way, leaping from being a mere Genin all the way to the top, taking over the Kazekage seat, which his father left behind.
The quiet Gaara once emanated fear with his deafening silence that promises death. The same silence now reflects him as a strong, cool, elite, and lovable leader. His cool demeanor and esteemed rank wins him a harem of screaming fangirls, a sharp contrast to all the rocks of hatred he gets hurled at him in his childhood.
The final barrier to living a normal life free of angst was also delivered from him thanks to the enigmatic and cool Akatsuki gang, who removed the one-tailed demon Shukaku contained within Gaara. Ok, so removing Shukaku from Gaara meant certain death for our beloved Kazekage. But Grandma Chiyo saves the day, exchanging her life to revive Gaara. So all’s well that ends well, and Gaara can finally have a good night’s rest without the demon within exploding out.
