Ayame Tomoko (あやめ智子, Tomoko Ayame) is one of the main supporting characters of the series. She is a chūnin-level kunoichi of Konohagakure and member of Team Naoki.


Ayame's parents are from Takigakure,but since Kioshi and Minato were friends and they were going on missions together,Minato decided that the Tomoko family should move in Konohagakure.At that time Masami was pregnant with Ayame.She was born in Konoha,8 months before the Kyuubi atack.Her parents fought in the war and at that time Kioshi was badly injured at his left leg,and he remained cripple.During her early years in the Academy,Ayame had many friends and she was very happy because she was a very popular girl for her talented ninja skills.Still,she was interested in only one person,Naruto Uzumaki,who was a loner and a very sad boy.Ayame grew and she started to feel something strong for him.She and Naruto were very good friends and she made him forget about the past.She was also really close to Sasuke,which made Naruto a bit jealous,but they only had a strong friendship.She also loved staying with her great friends,Akio and Shun,which later became her teammates.


Ayame is a very calm and kind girl. She likes to help people in her free time and she likes to take care of kids. She loves reading and she spends most of her free time reading books about everything. She has a very strong connection with her father, Kioshi. They always talk about everything. She loves her mother Masami and whenever she wants to talk about Naruto with someone, she talks with Masami. Ayame tends to have a desire to know many things about everything that's why she enjoys talking to people bigger than her to learn new things. She loves animals, she has two cats and she likes to take care of the ones she finds on the street. She wants to train to become a great ninja. She is very sensible and every bad word someone says about her, hurts her really much. Even though she always was a popular person, she likes to spend most of the time alone. She likes to make jokes with everyone just like her father. She enjoys the time spent with Naruto and admires his parents a lot. As a genin, she was a really shy girl... she didn't talk much, instead, she just liked training,

and that's what made her popular. As a chunin, her shyness disappeared and she started telling her emotions to people close to her. Before Sakura leaves to kill Sasuke, Ayame goes to Naruto and tells him that she loves him and that there has to be another way to end this without him going to get hurt. She hates wars and, during the 4th war, she mostly prays that this will end well and that Naruto and the others will be okay. She is also a very wise person and whenever her teammates have a problem, they ask her for advice.


Ayame has dark brown hair,dark blue eyes and a fair skin.As a child,she wore normal clothing,and she had her hair tied in two little tails.In Part I,she wore short blue t-shirt over a cream dress with openings on sides and black pants.She also were a blue forehead protector as a belt.

In Part II,quickly becoming a woman,Ayame changed her clothing into a cream shirt off her shoulders with a blue sort west over it.She wears a short blue skirt with a little opening on her right leg.She wears fishnets over her knees and elbows,cream shorts and black fingerless gloves,boots and a forehead protector worn as a belt.She also has a medical puch worn at her belt on the left side of

it.Her hair is also much longer than in Part I.Her hair is almost above her belt.When she's not on a mission,she wears the short west and cream long shirt off her shoulders and blue shorts with black short shinobi sandals and bracelets on her hands.She keeps her hair tied back a few inches above the end in her free time.She is also armed with a tanto now,which she keeps hidden in her boots.During the 4th Shinobi War,she wears a Jonin west,with pants and fingerless black gloves.She also wears a forehead protector.


Born as a very talented ninja,Ayame was very powerfull at a young age.She trained a lot but unlike other ninjas,she's gifted with streght and intelligence.Still she isn't the strongest in her Team.Shun is the strongest,then Akio,then her.She wants to become better so she fights almost everyday.

Chakra Control

Being born in the Tomoko Clan,made Ayame have an excellent control over her chakra control.She is able to use her chakra and create mostly any form with it,without wasting a big amount of it.She also summons pets made of chakra,and that is her biggest advantage,she doesn't get tired and she doesn't waste a lot chakra.But for that she has to train both physicaly,but also mental.She trains with the older members of her clan to learn to use her chakra perfect.She can also use it to heal herself or to make it a shield around her body with many others.Kioshi also said when Masami gave birth to her that she is going to be a great ninja with a great power.Still,Ayame thinks she isn't strong enough.


Her intelligence is not to forget either.During the time spent at the Academy,she had big scores at exams.Still,she was defeated at the Chuunin exam.Later,in Part II,Tsunade mostly told her to go in missions with the Jonins,beacuse she was really good at fighting stratedy.


Besides her strong chakra control,Ayame likes to use Taijutsu,being weak at genjutsu.She practices martial arts with Rock Lee sometimes and she is really good at it.

Well, this is exactly how I felt for three years! I care about Naruto and I always will...I always knew that the promise he made was stupid..and not because he couldn't keep it, but because Sasuke was already touched by the darkness and it hurts to know that because he is one of my best friends..but even so, I'll never be able to tell Naruto this, because it's his choice and I have to respect it!!"
