Personality & Appearance
AppearanceShe has a slender, but feminine build, fair skin, violet-blue eyes (in the anime), bright red hair — a common trait amongst the members of the Uzumaki clan (portrayed as a deep plum colour in the anime) that reached her ankles, with strands that framed both sides of her face and a yellow clip that parts her hair to the left. As an adult she usually wore a high-collared, sleeveless loose-fitting dress with a green apron over it, a black band on her left wrist and standard shinobi sandals. In her childhood, she had a round face which with her red hair made her look like a tomato. In her adolescence she wore a short sleeve, kimono-like blouse with a dark embroidered border and loose sleeves, held closed with a dark coloured obi, a dark skirt and stockings that stopped at her thighs.
Kushina was talkative and a tomboyish girl. Tsunade noted that much of Naruto's personality, as well as his ninjutsu style were inherited from her. Kushina also had a verbal tic: when flustered or excited, she would end her sentences with "(da)ttebane" ((だ)ってばね), a trait she hoped (unsuccessfully) she wouldn't pass down to Naruto (who ends his with "(da)ttebayo"). As an adult, Kushina was shown to be very level-headed and cheerful. Despite her calm and kind demeanour, she still had a slight temper and could lash out at others at times. She loved her husband and newborn son very deeply and was not afraid to sacrifice her life to stop the Nine-Tails even throwing herself between the beast and her son when it tried to attack him.
