Life of Gaara

Earlier Life

Gaara was born in Sunagakure (the Hidden Village in Sand), and when he was born, everyone was surprised because he was born so tiny that he would fit in half of a palm.

His father was the Fourth Kazekage of the Hidden Village of Sand and decided to make him Jinchuriki because the village budget for weapons was low. Gaara becomes the host of one-tailed beast Shikaku as his older siblings Timari and Kunkuro are not compatible with the One-Tailed beast.

Granny Chiyo was the one who sealed Shikaku inside Gaara before he was born. Gaara was born early, and his mother, Karura, died from childbirth difficulties. Karura gave Gaara a kind glance as she passed away and promised to watch over him always.

Gaara used to stay in a room in his early days, where no one was allowed to come, as he was a Jinchuriki, and still, Kazekage was keeping an eye on him and only allowed him to go out when he felt like he was safe.

His father taught him Ninjutsu, and his Uncle Yashamaru took care of him while he was young and isolated in a house. Gaara would make an effort to interact with the people when he was permitted to wander the hamlet, being kind to them and providing them with whatever help he could.

In earlier days, his life and Naruto's life were the same, and villagers avoided him and didn't go near him because he was a Jinchuriki. When he was young, he was a very kind and polite kid who just wanted to make friends and play with other children, but just because he was Jinchuriki, no one wanted to be around him, not even his siblings, because they feared the power of the Tailed beast.

Gaara was shielded from harm by his sand and thus, he was oblivious to the suffering he was causing others. Gaara begged Yashamaru to explain pain to him when he was six years old. Yashamaru's explanation led Gaara to believe that he experienced unbearable pain in his heart.

Yashamaru claimed that Gaara experienced love daily from himself and his mother, whose spirit oversaw the sand shielding him. This made Gaara happy, so he walked into the village to try to express some love to the people he had hurt. However, his attempts to tell other about his feeling and intention was taken as more hostility and terror.

Gaara was shocked and began investigating the reason behind his treatment as a monster. He was assaulted by one of Suna's Anbu while doing this, and he mortally injured him with his sand.

When he took off the mask of that Anbu Shinobi, he saw that it was his beloved uncle Yashamaru, who had taken care of him since childhood and taught him what love and pain tried to kill him because his father wanted his child to be dead.

Yashamaru lied to Gaara that he wanted to take the mission to assassinate him, which Kazekage gave because he had hated him since Gaara was born, as his sister, who was Gaara's Mother, died after giving birth and even told him that the name Gaara she has given him phrase as Self-loving Carnage and hated Gaara since he born.

After releasing that, he was treated as a monster even by his father, and the one person he trusted and believed in hated him the most. He went into his shell and forgot what feelings, love, family, and friends are. He now wants to destroy everyone.

After seeing Gaara now able to control the power of the one-tailed beast, the Suna community decided to keep Gaara as their weapon and attack Hidden Leaf. Gaara became heartless, and in the village, whoever tried to say anything bad to him, he just killed them without any hesitation. He even killed friends of Kankuro and Timari.

Kankuro asked him not to feel pain or any feeling. Gaara said he would kill him immediately if he did not shut up.

Gaara During Chunin Exam

Under Baki's direction, Gaara and his siblings are placed in a group and brought to Konohagakure to participate in the Chunin Exams. Kankuro almost engages Team 7 in combat shortly after arriving, prompting Gaara to threaten to murder him if he doesn't leave them alone.

Gaara impresses Sasuke Uchiha, who then requests his name, and Sasuke reciprocates by asking Gaara for his name.

Gaara utilizes his Third Eye during the first round of the Chunin Exams to replicate the responses from other candidates' written tests. Gaara and his team must acquire a set of two scrolls in the Forest of Death for the second level, one of which they are handed and the other of which they must steal from another team.

Gaara insists on battling Team Shigure, even if she is unsure which scroll they carried when they initially came across them. As soon as he uses his Sand Waterfall Funeral to kill Shigure, Shigure's friends are forced to give up their scroll in return for their lives. Gaara murders them as well with Sand Coffin and prepares to kill the Team 8 members who are observing the situation undercover.

Kankuro and Temari persuade Gaara to stop interfering despite his threats to murder them if they do, leaving Team 8 unharmed. With the two scrolls they require, they finally make it to the forest's center in a world-record time of one hour and 37 minutes. Gaara also avoids getting even a tiny bit of dust on his clothing, something the proctors claim is practically impossible even for more skilled ninjas.

In the 2nd round, which was the prelims, the format was a one-to-one fight against each other, and when it was Gaara's turn, everyone in Team 8 didn't want to fight against him because they saw what he did with those ninjas during the first round.

Gaara vs. Rock Lee

Rock Lee was Up against Gaara in the 2nd round. As soon as the match started, Lee started to engage with him in combat, where he surprised Gaara as he was somewhere able to get through his defense, but Gaara’s sand also kept up with Lee's pace as it protected him really well.

Might Guy, the Sensei of Lee, allowed him to drop the weights he was wearing on his legs after seeing this, Temari thought that dropping a couple of pounds would help Lee.

When the weights dropped, everyone was surprised by how much he had on his legs, and it is said that Lee had around 630-900 kg weights in those straps he was wears regularly. The speed of Lee's movements increased, and he was the first person who was able to hurt him.

Lee uses Hiden Lotus to do that serious damage, but somehow, Gaara saved himself with a Sand clone. However, because of that Lee was worn out and it made him unable to move much. After that, Gaara uses his Sand to bind Lee, but then Lee unleashes his 8 Inner Gate power and can open the fourth gate, which is the gate of pain.

The Fourth Gate of Pain gave him greater power, and he injured Gaara with reverse Lotus, which made Gaara unable to move and so did it to Lee. But somehow Gaara got thirsty to kill Lee as he bound his one hand and one leg with sand and break it with Sand Coffin Jutsu. Gaara wanted to kill Lee, so he used his Sand Coffin but Might Guy came in between and saved Lee, making Gaara win the Match.

He learns that Sasuke Uchiha will be his first opponent in the finals, which will take place a month after the preliminary is over. Dosu Kinuta, another candidate who wants to assassinate Sasuke, attacked Gaara that evening. Gaara kills Dosu after switching for a moment into Shukaku.

Gaara and his siblings are informed of Suna and Otogakure's preparations to invade Konoha during the final matches of the Chunin Exams. Gaara is to change into Shukaku and assault the community from within while Suna and Oto's men advance once the invasion begins.

Before the final match, when Lee was admitted to the Hospital and Gaara came to kill him, seeking revenge, but by chance, Shikamaru and Naruto stopped him. By chance Might Guy came there as well and Gaara had to withdraw.

Gaara is eager to battle Sasuke because he has seen that Sasuke, like himself motivated by hatred, and killing Sasuke will prove beyond doubt that Gaara has a purpose in life. However, Sasuke is late for their bout, and Gaara is tense when he eventually shows up.

Gaara is astonished that when his fight with Sasuke begins, the latter easily get through his defenses because of his similar movement patterns and quickness to Lee. Gaara covers himself in the sand, shielding himself from Sasuke's punches and kicking as he prepares to become Shukaku.

Sasuke hurts Gaara's arm by using his Chidori to penetrate through the sand. Gaara aborts the metamorphosis after being terrified at first seeing his blood.

Plan To Destroy Konoha

Gaara's injuries make him so nervous that he cannot take part in the invasion of Konoha as planned when it starts while he is still engaged in battle with Sasuke.

Baki gives Temari and Kankur the order to return him to Suna. Sasuke, who wants to complete their fight, confronts them as they carry Gaara out from Konoha. When Sasuke comes up with them once more, Kankur tries to stall him but is unsuccessful, so Gaara throws Temari away so that she won't intervene.

Gaara started to turn into Shukaku when he first fought with Sasuke. Both arms turned into Shukaku’s arms and he also had a tail.

However, Naruto Uzumaki's presence prevents Gaara from murdering Sasuke. At first, Naruto doesn't recognize Gaara, but when he does, he makes an effort to flee. Once more pursuing Sasuke, Gaara is stopped by Sakura Haruno who makes Gaara think of Yashamaru.

Gaara is startled by this and uses his sand to tie her to a tree. Naruto resolves to stay and continue fighting to liberate Sakura and release Sasuke because he cannot do so.

Gaara continues to morph and launches a Sand Shuriken assault to summon the same unexpected strength that Naruto demonstrated in his previous finals fight.

Gaara uses Sand Waterfall Funeral to try to murder Naruto, but he can flee by calling Gamabunta. Gamabunta thrills Gaara by severing one of his transformation's limbs with his sword.

Gaara puts himself to sleep to hand over control of his body to Shukaku because of how powerful Naruto has already proved. After a protracted struggle, Gamabunta draws Naruto close enough to strike Gaara, rousing him and putting an end to Shukaku.

Gaara uses his sand to push Naruto away, but Naruto immediately counterattacks. Gaara can hold Naruto's arms and legs in place, but Naruto manages to headbutt him and do enough damage to cause the Shukaku metamorphosis to release.

Despite being worn out by the battle, Gaara and Naruto still have the strength for one more exchange. As they collide, Naruto strikes Gaara one more time and declares victory. Gaara and Naruto stumble to the ground and become immobile.

Gaara worries about what this loss implies for his existence and finds it difficult to understand how Naruto can be so strong. Gaara shouts for Naruto to keep away as he begins to crawl toward him.

However, as Naruto experienced a solitary childhood, he can only empathize with Gaara. However, Naruto was fortunate to meet people he could call friends, like Sasuke and Sakura, and for their company, he will go to any lengths to keep them safe, even if it means killing Gaara.

Gaara was so amazed by Naruto and his courage and felt calm because as Naruto was also treated like him in childhood, he is still fighting in his life to defeat him for his friends and village.

Then after realizing it, he accepted his defeat. Timari and Kankuro took Gaara with him, and as soon as Gaara was able to talk, he apologized to both of them, which made both siblings surprised, but at the same time, it was such a happy moment for them.

Gaara helps Lee and Hidden Leaf.

To protect Rock Lee from Kimimaro, Gaara shows up and notices that Lee is slower as compared to when they last met, which Lee explains is because Gaara's injuries to him were quite serious. Due to his remorse over this, Gaara is adamant about taking on Kimimaro alone to protect Lee from future harm.

While fighting with Kimimaro, Gaara uses most of his jutsu and can put Kimimaro on the backfoot. Still, when Kimimaro felt he would lose, he unleashed his Cursed mark seal and started to dominate the fight, but Gaara Shukaku Shield blocked all the attacks.

Gaara uses his Sand to pull Kimimaro down, respects his skills, and feels sorry for him because he is a very skilled Shinobi. When Gaara and Lee were returning before launching his attack, Kimimaro passed away from a previous sickness.

Gaara then reflects that Kimimaro was somewhat comparable to Naruto in that both would do whatever it took to protect what was important to them, even if that important thing was evil.

Once all members of the Sasuke Recovery Team have been located safely, Gaara returns to Suna with Temari and Kankur. He then leads Lee back to Konoha.

Gaara As Kazekage

Gaara is appointed Fifth Kazekage of Suna. He wants the position for two reasons: first, to prove to the residents that he is no longer a terrifying weapon, and second, to become as strong as Naruto by guarding the entire village.

Gaara abolishes several outdated rules in the anime. That includes one that prevented those unable to utilize ninjutsu or genjutsu from enrolling in the Academy because he saw the power of Rock Lee, who only knew Taijutsu and was still stronger than any other opponent he faced. Like him, Shira is skilled in taijutsu and can use this to become a Suna-nin.

Shira then teaches Gaara taijutsu, and later on, the fight between Shira and Rock Lee becomes one of the greatest fights of all time as Gaara tells Shira that he faced the greatest Taijutsu user and that he should fight him and learn from him.

The Fifth Hokage suggests a Chunin Exam for their communities about two years after Part I ends. The test will publicly display the alliance between their two communities as it currently stands. Insidiously, it is hoped that the exam would attract Akatsuki, who are searching for jinchuriki similar to Gaara.

Gaara concurs, thinking that by doing so, he will be able to win over his critics in Suna. Kankuro repeatedly tries to persuade Gaara not to put himself in such danger, but Gaara is adamant that this is the only way he can join the people of Suna. In Suna's Demon Desert, Gaara presides over the beginning of the exam's second phase.

Later, when he learns that two Junin from Takigakure is taking part in the tests, Gaara uses his Third Eye to watch them. The third Taki team member, Fu, who Gaara immediately realizes is also a jinchuriki, learns about it.

Sandstorms begin raging throughout the Demon Desert during the second phase. Gaara sneakily eludes his guards so he may walk into the desert and save Team Matsuri. Once he finds them, he discovers that Fu, who Gaara compares to Naruto, is also assisting them.

As soon as they are out of the sandstorm, Hichi attacks Gaara and attempts to remove Shukaku from his body with a fuinjutsu chain. When Fu tries to assist him, her own tailed beast begins to be extracted as well.

Neji Hyuga, who Matsuri finds, halts the extractions by obstructing Gaara's and Fu's tenketsu. Gaara requests Neji save him and Hichi since this also leads the fuinjutsu chains to turn on Hichi.

Gaara then expresses gratitude to Neji and Matsuri for their assistance. Inferring that Fugi was responsible for Hoichi's attack, Gaara calls him and begs him not to harm Gaara's friends in the future, regardless of how he may feel for Gaara. This statement, as well as Gaara's acceptance of responsibility for his deeds, astound Fugi.

Gaara postpones the Chunin Exams until after the second stage because of the attack on himself and Fu. He tells the remaining participants that their bosses will get performance reviews and determine whether or not to promote them.

Gaara’s Rescue Mission

The Suna Council reviews information from Jiraiya of Konoha regarding Akatsuki's expected impending action two and a half years after Part I ends. Suna sets its borders under strict security as Akatsuki would pursue Gaara due to the One-Tailed Shukaku imprisoned within him.

Later, when Gaara is working in his office, he glances out the window and notices a foreign bird soaring in the sky. Gaara confronts the bird's rider, Deidara of Akatsuki, after concluding that he is an invader. Gaara uses sand around Suna to guard against Deidara's explosive clay while also being used to assault Deidara.

Deidara drops his C3 on Suna after Gaara uses his sand to break off his left arm. With his Air Sand Protective Wall, Gaara fortifies the settlement and narrowly avoids another set of Deidara's C1 bombs.

He realizes that Deidara has hidden some explosives in his supply of sand, which explode at point-blank range as he regroups within his Shield of Sand. Gaara shifts the sand he's been using during the battle away from Suna so that it won't fall on the villagers before he passes out.

He is apprehended by Deidara and brought back to an Akatsuki hideout, where it takes the group three days to remove Shukaku from Gaara's body. Gaara sees an increasingly unrecognizably lonesome version of himself as the extraction draws close.

When Shukaku is taken from Gaara, he passes away. He may be rescued from Akatsuki by Naruto and his squad, but they cannot perform a traditional resuscitation on him. Chiyo offers her life in exchange for Gaara's as an act of regret for having first sealed Shukaku within Gaara. Gaara has a glimpse of his former self alone and unknowable becoming friends with Naruto as life slowly returns to him.

When he awakens, he discovers that he is not only surrounded by Naruto and his team but also by his brothers and the several other Suna-nin who have been working nonstop to locate and save him.

Gaara coerces himself to stand and asks everyone to pray for Chiyo after learning what she did for him. A few days later, they attend Chiyo's funeral, and Gaara thanks Naruto becuase it was Naruto who saved him the 2nd time, and he is his first friend.

Gaar’s First Five Kage Summit

The youngest Kazekage and Kage, Gaara, accepted the invitation from the fourth Raikage to talk about Akatsuki group movements and danger. Gaara takes Temari and Kankur as bodyguards to the Land of Iron when he receives the call. When all the Kage is present, Gaara introduces the meeting by talking about his interactions with Akatsuki and his prior attempts to work with the other Kage—efforts that only the Fifth Hokage could assist with.

The Fourth Raikage's charge that the present Kage and their forerunners used Akatsuki stands out among the previous Kage's justifications for their lack of assistance. The Third Tsuchikage claims that because Gaara is too young, he cannot grasp the news, which disgusts him.

Sasuke Uchiha, who has been working with Akatsuki, has infiltrated the Summit, according to Zetsu, who interrupts the summit with the breaking news. While the Fourth Raikage is away looking for Sasuke, the other Kages quarrel.

As a result of Naruto's influence, Gaara loses respect for his colleagues' willingness to give up and loses hope that the Kage will be able to cooperate. Gaara departs to meet Sasuke and arrives just in time to prevent Sasuke and the Raikage from seriously hurting one another.

Gaara converses with Sasuke as the Raikage's wounds are being attended to, commenting that he possesses the same hatred that motivated him the previous time they met. Gaara counsels Sasuke to turn around while he still has the chance because nothing positive can come from his current course of action, based on his own experience with hatred. Sasuke declines.

Gaara joins Temari, Kankur, and Darui in assaulting Sasuke after hearing his reply with sadness. Sasuke defends himself with Susanoo and demolishes the room to hide his escape. While pursuing Sasuke back to the Summit chamber, Gaara uses his sand to shield the others. They get there just in time to witness Tobi, the head of the Akatsuki, transport Sasuke to safety.

Tobi addresses the audience with an explanation of his Eye of the Moon Plan and demands that the Kage hand over Naruto and Killer B carry out the scheme. When Gaara and the other Kage refuse, Tobi declares the Fourth Shinobi World War has begun before leaving.

Although they want Konoha to join, the Kage agree to establish an Allied Shinobi Forces; however, they do not trust the Sixth Hokage Candidate and will need someone else to represent Konoha. Gaara suggests Kakashi Hatake, and the other Kage concur.

Gaara meets Kakashi in the Land of Iron after the Kage split up and discovers Naruto with him. Gaara informs them of everything that transpired at the Summit, including Sasuke's actions. Gaara emphasizes to Naruto that he will be protected during the impending conflict and that if Sasuke decides to support Akatsuki, Gaara will battle him to protect Naruto.

He expresses his belief that Sasuke can no longer be spared from himself and that Naruto must come to the same understanding if he ever hopes to become Hokage. Before departing, however, he suggests that Naruto, at the very least, determines for himself what can be done for Sasuke.

When Gaara, Temari, and Kankur return to Suna, they learn that the daimy have already given their approval for the founding of the Allied Shinobi Forces.

Gaara, The Commander of Allied Shinobi Force

Gaara, has been appointed commander in chief of Allied Force Shinobi and the fourth Division Commander. When Gaara came forward to give his Speech, some Shinobi said that they would not follow Shinobis from other Villages because of the past conflicts, and the argument started to heat up. Still, Gaara started to give his speech about Naruto, friends, and family and said we are one.

All Shinobi felt it and realized it was time to be together. Then The Fourth Division is led by Gaara to the edge of the Land of Lightning. Gaara disperses his Sand Sensing there so that he may track any movement of Akatsuki's soldiers.

The reborn Second Mizukage, Third Raikage, and Gaara's father, Rasa, are sent to strengthen M after this exposes a reincarnated M. With his Third Eye, Gaara sees them and summons assistance.

The Third Tsuchikage is dispatched to aid, but they stay out of battle until the second day of the conflict. When they are prepared, Gaara attacks first with his sand, and Rasa responds with his gold dust.

Rasa is shocked to learn that Gaara has not changed into Shukaku when he first meets him because he had assumed so based on the amount of sand he had. Gaara tells him that Shukaku was taken from his body but that his numerous friends acquired as Kazekage has helped preserve his life. He also says that Kazekage now understands and forgives all of Rasa's efforts to murder him.

Gaara was surprised to see his Mother in the form of Sand, and then Rasa told him that it was his mother who always protected him, not Shikaku, and then accepted the Defeat as Gaara sealed him with sealing tages and his sand.

Other past Kage flew away from his Sand, and then Gaara Helped Tsuchikage in the battle against Mu by using his Sand eye and sand to locate him.

When Gaara was Attacked, Naruto Shadow Clone Saved him and then helped him to seal Mu and was able to do that.

After that, he defeated the Mizukage and his Clone by turning it into gold, and Mizukage told him that he was a Golden Child.

Madara vs. The Five Kage

Kabuto Summoned Madara to fight and gain the upper hand. When Gaara and Tsuchikage Noticed Madara, they got terrified because Madara was the most powerful Shinobi alongside Hashirama Senju.

At first, Gaara, Tsuchikage, and Naruto fought together to defeat Madara but were unable to do as Madara awakened Mangekyu Sharingan and Rinnegan, the most powerful Ninjutsu in the world.

Madara Uses Rinnegan's power to Drop the Two meteorites from the sky, but somehow Gaara is able to save some people with his sand.

Then The Other Kages joined the Battle to Defeat Madara and told Naruto Clone to leave the field and focus on the other battlefield. Madara fought all Kage simultaneously, still able to defeat them and injured them heavily, but somehow Lady Tsunade was able to save them.

The Ten-Tailed Jinchuriki

Orochimaru and his team Saved the Five Kage, and then they all joined the Battle area where Ten tail Jinchukri had taken birth. After reaching there, Lady Katsuya told them everything that had happened.

Gaara catches hold of Shukaku's chakra and rips it out when Naruto can unseal the chakra of the tailed monsters that were imprisoned inside Tobi. The Allied Forces move on to battle Madara, the sole persistent menace, once Obito has been defeated.

Gaara asks Shukaku to assist him in sealing Madara. Until Gaara recommends that he ask another tailed beast, Shukaku is indifferent; at that time, Shukaku chooses to assist.

Even with all the help, they could not seal Madara, and now he turned into Ten-Tailed Jinchuriki, but before Nine tail was taken, he communicated with Gaara and told him how to save Naruto's life.

Gaara took Naruto and Sakura to help him while he went to Minato, who has the other half of the Nine tails Chakra. After leaving him with Sakura, he joined Guy, Kakashi Minato, and Lee.

They fought against Madara and helped Might guy while he used 8 inner gates to give his life in exchange for power so he could defeat Madara. Still, everything Failed, and Madara put everyone in Infinite Tsukuyomi.

Infinite Tsukuyomi

After everyone was trapped in this jutsu, Gaara dreamt of living happily with his family and friends, everyone in Hidden Sand Village accepted him as a Normal kid, and he played with Naruto every day, but then Sasuke and Naruto broke the trap of Infinite Tsukuyomi and Gaara came back to Reality.

Gaara in Boruto

Gaara remained close to Naruto over the years and even met his kids, Boruto and Himawari, who eventually grew to think of him as an uncle. Gaara eventually came upon Shinki, who was unable to manage his strength.

The youngster assaulted Gaara out of fear, which caused him to impale Shinki while cuddling Gaara. When Gaara approached, Shinki became less alarmed, and the Kazekage offered to teach the young man how to harness his strength.

Gaara facing Urashiki

During the Chunin exam in Boruto, Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki and Kinshiki invaded Konoha and came to take Naruto Chakra to get the Divine fruit again. Making Kaguya reborn again, Gaara assisted the other Kage in defending and rescuing the onlookers.

In the anime, Gaara and Chjr chased Urashiki after spotting him earlier. The two put pressure on Urashiki despite leaving most of his sand to sustain the collapsing arena and Chjr without his Mist Swordsmen sword.

Gaara helped the other Kage, Sasuke, and Naruto's son, Boruto, rescue Naruto after Kinshiki and Momoshiki abducted him. They liberated Naruto on Momoshiki's planet and joined forces to fight Momoshiki.

Despite momentarily defeating him, Momoshiki could rebound and use a stolen Shadow Imitation Technique to immobilize the Kage. Momoshiki was finally defeated by Boruto, enabling everyone to return to Konoha.

Gaara’s Personality

Gaara was kind and just wanted to play with other children. Still, as he was the Jinchuriki, everyone in the Village feared him and went away whenever they saw him. After Yashimaru told him the lies about him hating Gaara and his mother hated him like all other village people, Gaara turned into a heartless young kid who could control the power of Shikaku.

Gaara became bloodthirsty and just wanted to kill anyone who came in his way, and that’s why he was in plan to destroy Konoha, but then he met Naruto and fought with him. The Leaf Village ninja changed the way Gaara used to think, and he was able to change because Naruto suffered the same way as Gaara did as a child.

Yet despite that Naruto still chose a different path, a positive path which led him to make friends and for friends, he can do anything. After seeing Naruto's courage and strength while fighting with him, he understood that having friends and love makes a person stronger and better. After that, he followed in Naruto’s footsteps and became a Kazekage to change many rules in the village to give the people a better life.

Gaara’s Appearance

Gaara, in part 1st of Naruto, has short Spiky red hair with fair skin and he is dressed in a black bodysuit with an open neck, t-shirt- like sleeves, and leggings near the floor. While doing this, he covers his right shoulder and the left side of his hips with a white towel.

He wears his sand gourd and forehead protection around a broad leather band that runs from his left shoulder to his right hip. Gaara is seen wearing a full-length pair of black pants and a pair of full-length, crimson-colored coats in Part II.

Over the coat, he is dressed in two buckled belts, a grey vest fastened to his left shoulder by a single strap, and two buckled belts that he also uses to carry a gourd.

He occasionally dons the usual Kazekage outfit, and Suna's flak jacket during the Fourth Shinobi World War is what he wore then. Gaara wears a red long sleeve shirt with numerous buttons and red-colored slacks in The Last: Naruto the Movie.

In addition, he now has a smaller sand gourd strapped to his left side and is wearing a brown belt. Gaara starts putting on a trench coat as an adult.

Gaara in Boruto: The Next Generation

He started to look like an adult with Wrinkles around his eyes, and now he wears a long Red coat which matches his Hair Color and black Trouser. There is a brown Belt around his waist which hold the sand furnace.

Gaara’s Abilities

Gaara’s Quotes

  1. (To Naruto and Shikamaru) "I am a relic they want to get rid of, so why do I exist and live? In order to exist, you need a purpose. To exist for no reason is the same as being dead. Then I came to the conclusion that I would love only myself and fight for only myself. If all other people exist to magnify that love, then there is no more a splendid universe than this one. My existence will not vanish."
  2. (To Sasuke) "You have the same eyes as I do… the eyes, filled with hatred and death, that long for strength… just like mine… your eyes tell me how badly you wish to kill the one who put you through the hell called loneliness."
  3. (To Rock Lee) "You're the same then. When you feel the honor of your idol under scrutiny. You become enraged as if it were your own honor being questioned. The more precious your idol is to you. the harder you fight for him."
  4. "Perhaps the companionship of an evil person is preferable to loneliness."
  5. (To Kankurō) "I will work hard because I want to become acknowledged by others. That's what I thought when I looked at Naruto Uzumaki. Bonds with others… Until now, I have only known them as hate and murderous intent. But I wonder, what is that bond he longed for? Now I understand, even only a little. Pain, sadness… and joy. These feelings allow you to understand others."
  6. "This is where it all starts for me. Starting with this small bond. I, too, want to become someone who is needed instead of a feared weapon. And as the Kazekage of Sunagakure."
  7. (To Naruto) "I think of you as a friend. I used to think "friend" was just another word… Nothing more, nothing less. But when I met you, I realized what was important was the word's meaning."
  8. (To the Allied Shinobi Forces) "There are no enemies here because we've all suffered at Akatsuki's hand! So there is no Suna, no Iwa, no Konoha, no Kiri, and no Kumo! There are only shinobi!"
