Sarada Uchiha is the only daughter of Sakura and Sasuke. She was raised by Sakura only because Sasuke went on a mission to find out more about the Otsutsuki clan. She was born in one of Orochimaru's hideouts, and Karin helped Sakura in her delivery.
Sarada was born and brought up alongside Chocho Akimichi and Boruto Uzumaki. Since their childhood, they have known each other and were brought up together as siblings. From a very young age, Sarada has mostly been living alone as Sakura became the head of Konoha hospital which made her very busy, and her father Sasuke Uchiha was always out on missions. Sarada saw Sasuke for the first time when Shin Uchiha attacked them.
After enrolling in the Ninja Academy, Sarada was placed in Shino Aburame’s homeroom alongside Chocho, Boruto, Shikadai, and many others. After learning about Naruto's history and seeing how he saw the whole village as his family, she decided to become Hokage, just like Naruto Uzumaki.
When Sarada went to one of Orochimaru's hideouts, she found that the two shinobi in her picture lived there. After she informed Suigetsu of her concerns about her origins, he tested her DNA against the DNA of what he thought to be Karin's umbilical cord, and the results were a perfect match. Naruto comforted Sarada before the two rushed outside to search for Sakura, whose location Orochimaru had just disclosed.
Sarada, alongside Sasuke and Naruto, went to the dimension where Shin Uchiha kept Sakura. They would defeat Shin Uchiha, rescue Sakura, and return to Konoha. After coming back to Konoha, Sasuke, for the first time, spent his time with Sarada and Sakura and took a family picture. When Sasuke again set out for a mission, Sarada went to see him off. Sasuke then did what Itachi Uchiha used to do to Sasuke when he wanted to show love, which was touching the forehead, and so that is what Sasuke did to Sarada.
Sarada and Boruto spent the next holidays together training because their parents were busy with their work. Sasuke coming back to Konoha made Sarada very happy, and when Sasuke came back, he tried to get to know Sarada. He went to the festival to spend time with her but soon Sarada got irritated since Sasuke didn't know anything about her. She went off, but while running away, Boruto confronted her and told her that she should also try to get to know him, as even Sarada doesn't know anything about him.
Later, when she was perfecting her shuriken technique, Sasuke came over and praised her on her goal to succeed as Hokage. Much to her surprise, he stated that she would become a better Hokage than he ever could and that he would help her through her difficulties. As the day ended, she and Sasuke returned to the house, where they all ate dinner together.
For their upcoming trip to the Land of Water, Sarada voted Boruto as their class tour leader. After arriving, the students met the Fifth and Sixth Mizukage while being toured across Kirigakure by Kagura Karatachi. Later, Sarada found Tsurushi Hachiya hurt, and she treated him while learning that Boruto was in danger.
At the Kirigakure Academy, where she saw Boruto's defeat, she treated him and learned that Shizuma Hoshigaki was torturing Kagura. Since it was his responsibility as the field trip leader to ensure that everything went smoothly, Boruto stopped Sarada so that he could alert their professors of Shizuma's plans.
When the Mizukage learned that Kagura had betrayed Kiri with Shizuma's group, Sarada and Boruto went to question the duo. Chojuro reminded Sarada that the Hokage she desires to be would never sacrifice a life for the village, but Sarada questioned if he really intended to murder Kagura.
Chojuro agrees to Boruto's idea and decides to help the duo as their "guide" under pressure from Boruto to make the incident appear like a battle between children rather than a rebellion. Shizuma confronts the gang at Memorial Park as they prepare to start their village revolution, using a mist to hide the battle.
Buntan Kurosuki faced her, and she fought the student using Kiba and a range of Lightning Release tactics. The battle came to a halt when Sarada used her dojutsu to mimic Buntan's fighting style after managing to live by utilizing her Sharingan.
Buntan was knocked unconscious when Sarada used a paper bomb to blow up the hydrogen accumulated during their battle in the tunnel after she cast genjutsu undetected. She fainted from exhaustion. Tsurushi had to carry Sarada to her hotel on his back after putting an end to the rebellion since she was unable to walk. They left the village after that and went back to Konoha, where she, Boruto, and Iwabee were punished for their behavior on the field trip.
Later, when Shino asked Sarada about her future plans as the ninja students started preparing for the graduation tests, Sakura was there. Sukea interviewed her, and she discussed her desire to become the Hokage. Later, when Wasabi decided not to continue being a ninja and Namida and Wasabi started fighting, Sarada was confused about how to help.
Sarada was inspired to assist her friends when Boruto gently said that the Hokage was expected to assist in settling all issues in the village for the good of everybody. Sarada afterwards discovered that Wasabi's parents had made a choice. Wasabi talked to her parents and convinced them to let her join Namida in her goal of becoming a ninja after being convinced by Sarada.
To pass the Genin Tests, Sarada and her friends attempted to steal the test answers from the written exams, as Shino had mentioned to his class. The next day, the students are challenged against Kakashi Hatake and Academy teachers during the exam's 24-hour practical round.
Sarada and Sumire fought Konohamaru Sarutobi as the test officially began but were quickly defeated. She came up with a strategy after reuniting with the released students and used it to cast Konohamaru under genjutsu to trick him into death. In the end, they could not get a bell from Kakashi Hatake. Still, Kakashi passed them all because they all showed teamwork and courage.
Sarada was then assigned to Team 3 by Konohamaru, along with Boruto and Mitsuki. The genin went to the Seventh Hokage and asked to be put on another team, claiming she was incompatible with Boruto. To reach the Kage, the shinobi had to subdue Mirai Sarutobi because she wouldn't allow them to see Naruto. Instead, they requested that their squad be given the name Team 7, and he agreed.
Team 7's first mission, which required defending Green Banks from robbers, was given to them by Naruto. When the squad learned that the bandits were actually ninjas upon arrival, Konohamaru questioned whether they should continue with the assignment because it would likely be too challenging for genin to take on skilled shinobi.
The genin watched Ashimaru attack the village while talking with Kiri about the situation, which forced Konohamaru to force Ashimaru to retreat. To force her into giving them the rights to the village's bridge, Kiri stated that the shinobi were attacking the society.
Team 7 discovered numerous villagers were under the genjutsu control during the night and took them down. Team 7 met with the offenders after learning Kiri had been kidnapped during the event to trade the deed for her. After the exchange, Hidari and Ashimaru resolve to kill everyone, which prompts Konohamaru to ask the genin to accompany Kiri in her escape.
Ashimaru pursued the genin, and they battled and beat him. The squad finished the assignment and returned to Konoha; later, Sarada completed Byakuya's mission.
For the first exam stage, each team was given a true or false question on a book. After guessing the correct response and stepping on the spot to symbolize it, their foothold falls away, revealing a hole underneath them, which lets Sarada capture Mitsuki while he also captures Boruto.
The squad succeeded because no one fell into the ink at the bottom of the pit. Squad Konohamaru faced up against a Kirigakure team in a game of capturing the flag during the second phase. The squad advanced to the finals after Boruto defeated them and Sarada captured their flag, after dismissing the genjutsu guarding it.
The final stage was a one on one fight. Sarada fought in her semi-final match against Araya, although in the manga, the tournament was suspended before she could face Mitsuki.
The moment their encounter began, Sarada's opponent successfully countered each of her strikes, making it impossible for her to keep up even with the use of her Sharingan. Sarada learned that she had been up against a puppet after failing to defeat Araya with genjutsu, and she went on to reveal the puppeteer who was stationed above the arena.
She resumed the battle with the puppet and executed the new trick Sasuke had taught her, burning it and advancing to the finals where she would face Boruto and Shinki. He defeated Sarada during the fight, but Boruto eventually overcame him. While Sarada was delighted for Boruto, she was terribly disappointed when she discovered that he had used the Ninja Tool, which was prohibited in the exam.
Sarada started assisting individuals in evacuating the stadium when Kinshiki and Momoshiki Otsutsuki attacked. Sasuke shielded her as a chunk of debris landed near her. He then brought Sarada to Naruto and Boruto. The parents protected their kids.
Naruto gave Sasuke the order to evacuate with the genin as the situation became more dangerous. Naruto is then captured and taken away. She remained beside an unconscious Boruto in the hospital, and when he awoke, she told him that Naruto had been kidnapped. Boruto and Sasuke left with the four Kage to rescue him.
Later, all missions were put on hold while an attack on two gate guards was being investigated. Boruto and Sarada questioned Konohamaru about Mitsuki's disappearance when he failed to show up. The two genin went to spy on the Seventh Hokage's conference after realizing he was keeping something a secret.
There, they discovered that Orochimaru was Mitsuki's father and that Mitsuki had escaped the village after battling Konoha shinobi. Ultimately, Mitsuki was called a traitor by the other Hokage. Sarada made the decision that they must follow instructions and remain in place, but Boruto, who would not accept that his buddy was a traitor, pointed out that Sarada's desire to become the Hokage is pointless if she has no loyalty to her friends.
After finding Mitsuki's snake the next evening with a recorded message, Boruto and Sarada decided to ask Orochimaru for answers.
To mislead the Konoha jonin stationed outside Orochimaru's research facility and allow Boruto to get inside, Sarada transformed into Mitsuki. Sarada successfully led the shinobi away, but after being captured by the jonin, Karin surprised Sarada by saving her. Mitsuki was one of several clones Sarada discovered after reuniting with Boruto at the laboratory.
Sarada and Boruto went to Ryuchi Cave after Orochimaru told them that they might learn information about Mitsuki from the snake's memories if they presented it to the White Snake Sage, as he was unable to extract any hints from it. Team 10 blocked their route as they went there. They engaged the squad in combat rather than going back to Konoha. Shikadai realized that maybe Boruto was right, and they decided to help them.
After passing three trails, the genin could enter the cave as they got there. The shinobi encountered the sage inside, who gave them the assignment to give her Garaga's reverse scale to find the meaning of Mitsuki's snake.
Aoda, Sasuke's summoning snake, helped Sarada during their journey. When Boruto signed a summoning agreement with Garada and delivered him to the sage, she gave the party Mitsuki's snake's memories, which demonstrated he wasn't a traitor and that he was traveling to the Land of Earth.
Shikadai sent Inojin and Chocho back to the village to report their discovery as the team approached the border of the Land of Earth. While Kokuyo fought and put pressure on the shinobi, the other genin discovered a group of Konoha chunin who he had defeated. Inojin and Chocho, who took care of Kokuyo while Sarada and Boruto carried on, helped the three.
Sekiei quickly caught up with them and observed that Mitsuki willingly went with them. Mitsuki protected Sekiei from an attack as Boruto battled him before striking Boruto out, shocking Sarada. Later they were able to understand the scenario of the Onoki plan and were able to prove that Mitsuki was not a traitor; it was all Ku's fault.
While Sarada arrived as a guest and pretended to be a journalism student conducting research on the location, Mitsuki and Boruto entered Hozuki Castle as prisoners in order to find Kokuri, a deserter of the Mujina Bandits, for his knowledge of the nefarious group, and to protect him from the gang's second-in-command, Tsukiyo.
Benga gave her a tour of the area, and she later spoke with Mujo, the castle's master, who was aware of their objective. Team 7 completed their mission and returned to Konoha with Kokuri to tell the Konoha agency about the Mujina bandits.
Later, Sarada captured the Mujina bandits and Shojoji, the leader of the Mujina bandits. Team 7 got lots of applause as they completed the B-rank mission. Soon, Sarada started to do Medical Ninjutsu training because having one Medical ninja in a team was mandatory. As a daughter of Sakura, she inherited great control of her chakra from a very young age.
To help Mugino locate missing researcher Anato in the Land of Valleys, Sarada's team was assigned to the search. They were able to sneak to the last known location of Anato's squad after getting to know the man's wife, Mia, and learning about the big medical company in the town. Victor, the president of the business, and his security personnel stopped them there.
They quickly located a cave. They discovered Anato inside, whose body had been changed into a pliable state and was aggressively attacking them. Later, Victor's guard captured Anato and said they would send him to the village hospital, so after assuring them, Sarada and her team returned to Konoha. On the way, Mitsuki got ill, and they had to leave Mitsuki in the care of Yubina; they went to the Land of Silence to get Hashirama's cell which was being sold on the black market.
Later, Team 7 learned that Victor was behind all this, and alongside Deepa, he fought Konoha Shinobi and was able to defeat all of them. Mitsuki used his Sage Mode to rescue Boruto and Sarada, who was heavily injured in the battle against Deepa.
The most injured of the group was Mitsuki, because he could not hold the power of Sage Mode, and Orochimaru was somehow able to stabilize him. Sarada was so disappointed in herself because her power was not enough to defeat Deepa, and she trained to gain more power. Sakura helped her in training.
Team 7 once again faced Deepa, and with their improvement in their jutsu and power, they defeated Deepa together. On the other hand, Orochimaru was able to destroy the God Tree.
As the Konoha ninja were going back to the village, they found Kawaki lying down unconscious. They spotted the Kama mark on Kawaki, which was the same as Boruto. Boruto’s Kama mark started hurting Boruto and Kawaki, which made Kawaki wake up and attack them.
Konohamaru introduced himself and the squad before requesting details about the crash. Boruto showed Kawaki his mark, refusing to give any more information, leading Kawaki to think they were Kara's followers. When they attempted to correct him, Garo appeared and declared his purpose to rescue Kawaki.
Team 7 survived the bomb as Boruto absorbed it with his kama, killing his attacker with a blast. Katasuke discovered his body had been transformed into a technological ninja tool after losing consciousness during his struggle. It was finally decided to bring Kawaki to the village so Naruto Uzumaki would decide what to do about him.
Later in the meeting with the other Five Kage, it was decided that Naruto would look after Kawaki, and Kawaki started to stay at Naruto's house. Sarada told Kawaki that he could rely on Lord Seventh (Naruto Uzumaki) as he treats all village people as family.
Later, to raise spirits and recruit new chunin. Naruto made the decision to hold another Chunin Exam. Sarada and her group successfully completed the initial written exam. Sarada successfully rescued her injured comrade and brought them out of the woodland in time for the second exam's Forest of Death while also fending off Mirai as a mock enemy when Mirai discovered her Mitsuki disguise. She was one of 10 genin to pass the second part; for the final exam, she would face off against Chocho.
Sarada was certain she would take the necessary steps to win. As the game started, Sarada's cunning swiftly started to pressure Chocho. Chocho was severely injured by one of Sarada's assaults, so she immediately stopped to check on her. This offended Chocho, who noted that Sarada wasn't taking the match seriously. After realizing her error and recalling her father's advice, Sarada decided to give it her all and then won the match.
After her promotion, Sarada felt sad because Konohamaru was no longer their leader. She talked to Team 7 about this. Team 7 was sent out when Konoha learnt that Konohamaru had remained behind as a prisoner during a mission, because their previous missions had made it possible for them to work more effectively with him. They learned about the hostage crisis and Konohamaru's motivations by observing the town as they approached. Boruto distracted Hyogo and his men long enough for the fog to gather, allowing them to release the hostages.
They assisted Konohamaru in finishing the last task together, restored the village, and then returned to the village to take one final group photo. She was also named Team 7's official captain.
She met Kawaki during a nighttime training session. Sarada encouraged him to understand that joining forces with others would make him stronger while he struggled with the idea of being a shinobi. The squad saw two strange shinobi passing by while on a mission to relocate animals.
Sarada and Boruto left Mitsuki to finish the assignment because it was almost complete while they conducted their investigation. They discovered Shikadai and a hurt Chocho, who gave them an account of how their mission had progressed. After the task was over, Sarada dropped by this hospital to see Chocho, who had been left behind, to help.
After Kawaki was accepted into Team 7 as a genin, they were assigned to escort Katasuke to Kirigakure to present new, cutting-edge power plants. They were also instructed to secretly look into claims that the event was in danger. Sarada stayed with the Team while Boruto decided to part ways with them to go see Kagura.
Boruto still hadn't returned and they were set to board an airship to travel to the new power plant. The first one to fly crashed and burst and she started to worry. Katasuke was hurt and Sarada attended to his wounds. She later learned from Boruto that the attack was a distraction for a prison break. Team 5 was on a mission in an area where the Funato Clan was, when Team 7 acquired a boat to check on them. When Kagura joined them after obtaining the assistance of Buntan Kurosuki, Hebiichigo, and Kyoho Fuefuki, she was taken aback.
As they sailed, Sadara's suspicion of the swordsmen increased, and she and Buntan clashed over her desire to fight pirates rather than hide. They had been marked with cursed seals, which Kagura indicated he could activate, to blow their heads off. When Kawaki's seasickness made them exposed to Funato pirates, they were able to escape and eventually made it to Doto Island, which is controlled by the Funato Clan.
Sarada advised Boruto to keep an eye on the swordsmen when Kagura decided that Sarada and Mitsuki would act as spies. They learned that the locals were being made to perform forced labor.
After coming up with a strategy, Sarada and Mitsuki freed the hostages while taking out a few Funato soldiers to cover their tracks. Sarada assisted in preventing Funato soldiers from boarding the ship Team 5 had acquired after boarding it. After the long mission is over and Boruto has been saved, Sarada hugs Boruto.
As the Anime is still ongoing, you will see more updates later.
At a young age, Sarada was not friendly with many kids and always kept her distance even though Chocho and Boruto had been around her when their parents used to meet. After she joined the Ninja Academy, she became more friendly and started to hang out with Chocho and Boruto more.
Sarada is also suspicious of everything and cannot trust anyone with her whole heart. After she saw Naruto, his personality, and his love for his family and the whole village, Sarada decided to be just like him and wanted to be Hokage. She is also devoted to her training and always chooses the safe path, which is the opposite of how Boruto is. Sarada later became more of a risk taker, as during Mitsuki's rescue mission, she has broken the law alongside Boruto.
At the beginning of her Academic career, Sarada wears a vermilion jacket over a cream color vest, which she wears with a high-collared white shirt and a red tie. After her graduation from the Academy, she wears a red sleeveless qipao shirt just like what Sakura used to wear in Naruto Shippuden. She has black short hair and red glasses which is what Karin wears and has black eyes which turn red when she activates Sharingan.
Sarada wears a black elbow-length warm guard just like Sasuke used to wear in Naruto. She wears a red head protector with a Konohagakure sign and shinobi sandals.
Sarada is very intelligent in both academics and in battles. She is also very skilled just like Sasuke was from a very young age, which she showed in Boruto: The Next Generation.
Sarada has one of the best chakra control in Boruto: The Next Generation. She inherited Sakura's chakra control and monstrous strength, which she showed in the Chunin exams and when she fought against Shin Uchiha in another dimension.
Sarada is very skilled in Shurikenjutsu, which she kept showing from time to time and just like the Uchiha, she has great knowledge of Ninja tools. She became skilled in Medical Ninjutsu and was able to focus her chakra on reactivating someone's circulatory system. She shows skill in both Cooperation Ninjutsu and Fuinjutsu.
Sarada was able to awaken a single tomoe Sharingan at the age of 11 when she got excited to see her father (Sasuke). She was able to use it in battle later, when Deepa defeated her and the other members of Team 7. She was later able to awaken the second tomoe Sharingan in both eyes and was able to defeat Deepa. Sarada can also use Fire style and lighting style jutsu like Chidori and Great Fireball Technique.
