How Old is Naruto in Boruto, Shippuden, and When He Became Hokage?

When Naruto was first introduced at the very beginning of the Naruto series, before Shippuden, he was 12 years old. At the beginning of Shippuden, he was 15 years old, and during the Great Ninja war, Naruto was about 17 years old. According to Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, the war occurred 15 years ago, and since the end of the war, he has been able to marry, ascend to the position of Hokage, and father two children. Based on the calculation, Naruto is 32 years old in Boruto, despite how he is frequently portrayed as an older character.

Naruto was born on October 10, according to the original Naruto series, and fused with the nine-tail fox shortly after he was born. And at the age of six, he enrolls at the Leaf Village Academy, a program that prepares young children to become ninjas.

A large part of the early series follows a young Naruto, who was around the age of twelve, right after he graduated from the Academy. He enrolls in the chunin tests, a process that allows genin ninjas to progress in rank and take on actual ninja missions at age 13. For the remainder of the Naruto series, he was 13 years old. Shippuden begins at the time skip, which also occurs in the manga.

This season follows the story of the young orphan who aspires to lead his town of Konoha as the Hokage. He enrolls at Konoha’s Ninja Academy, where he receives instruction from his teacher and surrogate father figure, Iruka Umino, in preparation for a life as a shinobi committed to defending his community.

He graduates from Konoha’s Ninja Academy at the age of 12, and along with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno, he joins a group known as Team 7.
