Naruto Mugen, a two-dimensional fighting game engine set in the universe of the popular "Naruto" anime series, has no set characters. Rather than creating a fighting game, Elecbyte--the company responsible for Mugen--created a system that allows users to create their own fighting game. As a result, hundreds of personalised, fan-made Naruto Mugen characters exist for download, all of which have their origins in the anime and manga series.
Hundreds of fan-made versions of Naruto, the titular protagonist of the series, exist for download, including standard, "chibi," future and four-tailed versions, among others. Naruto hosts a nine-tailed demon fox--a mythical Japanese creature--inside his body, granting him excess amounts of supernatural energy and allowing him to demonstrate extraordinary ninja abilities.
Sasuke, a close friend, rival and foil to Naruto in the series, hails from a skilled clan of ninjas that specialised in fire-breathing and weapon-based techniques. As one of the three main characters, a number of fan-based versions of Sasuke also exist, some of which utilise different abilities while others merely alter his appearance--for example, leaving off his trademark headband.
Sakura, the main heroine of the series and the only female member on Naruto's team, has a loyal, positive attitude toward both Naruto and Sasuke, but she originally had a poor opinion of Naruto. She possesses superhuman strength and an ability to heal wounds, which many versions of her Mugen character reflect.
Kakashi leads and teaches Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura, the three members of Team 7. His initial apathy toward the three gradually progresses into loyalty and fondness. Versions of his character for the game often include his "lightning blade"--an ability to thrust lightning at his enemy--and his ability to mimic the movements and actions of his opponents.
Gaara first appears in the series as an antagonist and foil to Naruto, but later becomes close friends with him. Like Naruto, his body houses a mythical Japanese creature inside--a One-Tailed Shukaku--which gives him an added source of power. Numerous versions, including transformed and future versions, exist for download, most of which make use of his ability to control sand.
Hinata, a female ninja infatuated with Naruto, generally lacks self-confidence and has a number of weaknesses, causing her to be a somewhat less popular character for Mugen. Her desire to impress Naruto, however, eventually lead to her improving her skills and gaining the ability to block or attack anything within her extended field of vision in an instant.
