|~ Kushina to a baby Naruto|
Kushina was a ninja from a village hidden in the former Land of Whirlpools. She was the mother of Naruto, and her lover and husband was Minato Namikaze, the Fourth Hokage. She had long red hair and was a beautiful woman. Most of Naruto's ninja skills and personality come from her. When Tsunade and Jiraiya talked about her, they described her as a talkative tomboy who became more and more beautiful as she grew up, and also had a jutsu-style like Naruto's.

- Adamantine Sealing Chains: This technique molds the user's chakra into extremely durable chains which can be used for various purposes, such as directly combating or physically restraining their targets — foes even as powerful as a tailed beast. According to Orochimaru, these chains could also be used to bind the chakra of a target, completely neutralizing them.
