Dattebayo! If you’re a fan of sci fi anime and Naruto then you already know what that means, and if you don’t know what that means, there’s still some chance you know what Naruto is. Here’s a quick list of the most popular sayings from Naruto and his friend Sasuke.
Coming at a tie would be “Believe it!” or “Dattebayo!”
In the english version of the anime, Naruto always says believe it when he’s happy or about to do something. Dattebayo is used in the Japanese version and is supposed to mean the same thing, but actually has no meaning.
“I won’t run away anymore… I won’t go back on my word… that is my ninja way!”
This became a popular saying for Naruto throughout the series. As he grows up and finds out that life isn’t what he thought it is, he uses this quote to push himself forward.
“To become Hokage is my dream!”
From the very beginning when he was a 5 year old and everyone was making fun of him, Naruto’s dream is to become Hokage, the ninja leader, and he makes sure that he tells everyone. Giving Naruto a cool angle outside of typical samurai anime fare.
“I understand now. Even if I must take the devil’s fruit, I must gain power. I am an avenger.”
A main theme for Sasuke is that he has to betray the people that he loves in order to become stronger.
“I have long since closed my eyes… My only goal is in the darkness.”
Since learning what the world has in store for him, he becomes distant with everyone he knows and is used to being by himself now. Although some of his lines could be considered anime comedy, these are definitely some of the darkest and best.
