Hīrōbites – Nara Shikamaru, Lazy Genius

Let’s celebrate Nara Shikamaru’s birthday

Nara Shikamaru is a lazy, laid back shinobi. He has a rare intellect that consistently allows him to prevail in battle. The whole Konohagakure looks up to his genius and the responsibilities that go with that is a frequent annoyance, but he gladly accepts them so that he may be a boon to his fellow members of Team Asuma, and to prove himself. He loves his village and friends very much and will do everything to help them. He is fiercely loyal.

Shikamaru’s shadow Jutsu fits him like a glove and makes him a formidable adversary. When he fights the enemy and get them trapped with his Jutsu, only those with tremendous willpower or those with longer mental endurance than Shikamaru might break free.

Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of the Naruto manga, likes Shikamaru because of his easygoing nature and sees him as a contrast against Sasuke Uchiha who is intelligent and abrasive in personality. Kishimoto also said that if Shikamaru was a girl he would marry her because women like that would be very successful. When he worked on Shikamaru’s Part II appearance he deliberately drew Shikamaru’s forehead protector on his arm, in order not to obscure Shikamaru’s hair.Listen to Nara Shikamaru’s theme song here.
