Gaara- he's has a sad past and he's just so mysteriously sexy!
Naruto- he saved Gaara, and he's a good friend to Gaara
Shikamaru- Lazy, cool relaxed, cloud envy dude, I just think he's awesome
Sai- He's funny and hot, love his freak outfit!
Shino- Because he's so mysterious, that's what I like
Kiba- He likes puppies!
Temari- She's awesome, and she's gaara's older sis

Favourite male character: Shikamaru ofcourse... the guy is just too cool. Though I like Kakashi and Naruto as much.
Overrated male character: Sasuke. Just die already (or disappear) and stop making life for team 7! For some reason I never really found him very cool - he's just an OK character. As I am waaay ahead in the manga he has degenreated from OK to an eyesore now (atleast in my eyes.) *runs away from angel and other sasuke-worshipers*
Favourite female character: Arrrgggghhhh.... This one is tough. I'm torn between Hinata and Sakura. I like them equally. Which one to choose? *gives up*

okay. Here's mine: ^_^
Kakashi - He's cool and strong.. That mask of his gives him a mysterious look that makes me drool. And he's so handsome!
Neji - He always seems to be relaxed and calm. And I love his eyes..
Hinata - Just like what sacred_angel_tear said, She's cute, smart and shy. And she cares a lot for other people.

Mine has to be "Lock" Lee (lol). He is exactly what I am and what he went through reminded me of what I went through. What I've done in my life and the things I've become adept at are through hard work. It is a rule that I go by.
Only difference is that he can express his feelings to a girl with such ease, and that cheesy shiny smile of his.

ONE favorite character, the first reason I even checked out naruto, and the hottest is one of the first reasons I took a liking to sasuke was because of what happened to his people, I felt soo sorry for him and on top of that, it was done by his own brother whom he looked up to, and I love the way he is trying to train himself to defet his cursed brother SASUKE UCHIHA
And also sasuke is the single hottest, cutest and dreamest character in Naruto ^!!!!I LOVE U SOO MUCH SASUKE!!!!^
Neji his sad past and I love his eyes, not to metion a totaly hottie,Garaa some as neji his past soo sad, and Naruto same, also Itachi even tho he's a Boys: bastard he's still a hottie
Tsunda is my fave gal, and the only other character that beats her*out of the guys and girls* is sasuke she is strong and really pretty. Temari is my second fave out of the girls love the way she fights and her fan is super cool, Hinta and Sakura are tied for me I really like Hinta cause she is quite and and the the way she always nervous kinda the way I am and she's smart, also caring, love that, Sakura, first of all I love anime girls with pink hair, I love the way she is open about her feeling and stuff I would love to be that way.

Kakashi: he's just plain funny and blunt. just love the but where Gai is Explaining this hole brilliant plan to him and then kakashi looks at him and just asks him if he said something. while sand village attacks. i was in tears of lafter at that moment.
proberly sakura or hinata. cant decide
Sakura: bullied when she was a kid, funny as hell when she is anoyed and kinda scary in the way of how strong she is.
Hinata: Emo and kinda makes me smile in how hard she trys to catch naruto's attention. and i find it quite entertaining how naruto doesnt realise. we have not seen hinata in naruto shippuden yet though, or i have just missed it out

In the beginning it was Kakashi for me. But that soon changed when I realised how COOL is Sasuke. UCHIHA SASUKE! Mmmm...I never get tired of saying it.
After him I think it's Hyuuga Neji. I love his Hakke Rokujuuyonsou and his Hakke Ni Ji Hashou. Next - Uzumaki Naruto. His clumsy but I love it when his all fiery and determined to win using his jutsu. And...Uchiha Itachi. His sight is chilling.
About hte girls: Tayuya. She's very VERY hot! And that dirty talk makes her even more sexy. Temari - second and I guess Ino - third. I like that tomboys-ish attutude of hers. And I think that's all. FOR NOW!
Overall here's the list:
1/ Uchiha Sasuke
2/ Hyuuga Neji
3/ Uzumaki Naruto
4/ Hatake Kakashi
3/ Ino Yamanaka

I am probably the odd one out in this one but my favorite Naruto Character is Chouji. He is nice, kind, has his funny moments, strong as hell, cuddly and I love his backstory. I really liked him before the save Sasuke arc but he becme my number one as soon as his backstory was revealed.
Shikamaru: A close second He's the lazy genious almost like myself lol
Tsuande: Love her backstory, and her strength is beyond awesome.
I have others I like but those are my top 3.

Weeelll... in no particular order...
Sasuke: Sure, he's supposedly evil and all that (last I checked) but he has a valid reason for his actions.
Quote: Sure, revenge is bad and all that, but seriously, if someone who was pretty much your role model betrayed you and murdered your entire clan, its hardly surprising your desire for revenge will be all consuming. However, I don't like how he went off with Orochimaru. Bad mistake there. I think he can be stronger than Itachi all on his own.
Shikamaru: The lazy genius. What more can I say?
Sakura: She is a weak character, in terms of her personality. And seriously annoying when she's mean to Naruto sometimes. But, she has changed and always tries her best.
Quote: The example I'm thinking of here, is the chuunin exams, and how she symbolically cut her hair and tried to protect Naruto and Sasuke, but also how she asked Tsunade to train her as a medical ninja so she can help people.

Gaara, because he was , in my mind the only character that had a decent storyline and background.

I somehow missed this thread as well...
Favorite male character from Naruto-has to be Shikamaru-he might seem like a lazy bum, but he's a "smart" lazy bum. I like his attitude and strategic skills as well-and he's just overall very cool. Kakashi would probably tie with Shikamaru as my favorite character-I ended up reading about his backstory in the manga-and I find him rather amusing as well as really level-headed (except when it comes to his favorite series of books ). And Naruto would make third on my list because, well, he never gives up-some people might think this is more in terms of stubborn tendencies (and yes, he is VERY stubborn), but at the same time, you have to give him credit-he has a high sense of perserverence, and when he says he'll do something, he'll follow through His confidence is a bit infectious
Sasuke I admit was a better character at the beginning, as much as I understand his situation-I didn't like him when he made the mistake of you-know-what. *points to Moi's quoted spoiler* That summarizes my thoughts exactly.
Favorite female character: Hinata I think I said it somewhere before, but I won't go into more about why except she's a little like how I was for a long, long time. I still think about the episode where she turned beet red and gave Naruto a good smack for surprising her.

Favorite character going by the manga mainly where he is more developed than ever has to be Shikamaru-even though he is lazy..he is a lazy genius.Witty,strategic and able to remain calm in adverse situations is his forte and coupled with his shadow binding jutus he can prove to be a worthy opponent to anyone and the manga readers would know how he was able to defeat a tough adversary.Even in the anime Tsunade only deemed him fit to be the leader of the pack to rescue Sasuke owing to his leadership capabilities and not forgetting he was the youngest chunin.
Female Character because of her will power,strength and beauty combined-Sakura-who never gave up even now for Sasuke and later on grew under the tutelage of Tsunade.
Life consists of work and play,one should have full commitment in both of them at the right time..

Guys: Shikamaru (I may not be as smart as him, but I'm as lazy or even more! XD). Kakashi (He's an excelent sensei and a REAL strong ninja. Plus, he is funny as hell). Gaara (I didn't care much for his past, but I have to admit, the guy is cool). Shino (The most reserved character, and the one with the prospect of becoming one of the best ninjas ever. He also cracks me up). Itachi (I dont think I really have to say why, we all know why XD)
Girls: I'm not really sure for this one. Sure, I like Sakura, but she also annoys me and sometimes wish she would just die. The others, I dont really care for them, although I like Hinata as well.

- Always acting cool. He has awesome jutsu and he's good-looking.
- He's also good-looking and has great jutsu.
- Goofy most of the time but when he gets serious chills go down my spine. Uzumaki Naruto
- He's so mysterious. I especially like him in the Kakashi Gaiden. I saw him on the 30th of December LAST year. I liked him right away.
- She's bossy and I like that fan of hers.
- She looks very nice. But she should get rid of the stinky pig.
And I suppose a bit - He's unpredictable.
That's it for now.

Kakashi & Guy - Both for their hilarious bets
Rock Lee - Ah, how he makes me laugh sometimes.
Itachi - just pure ownage
Ero Senin - his name kinda explains everything...
Sakura - when her eyes go completely white and round and she goes into a fit of rage and destroys everything
I don't know why some guys are crazy for Hinata. She just makes me want to puke.

Kiba and Akamaru- We both love Canines. My partner is a male wolf. His name is Blizzard Wolf. (Just like Kiba's is Akamaru, which means red.)
Rock Lee- He is wickedly fast.

This is off topic, but for all you guys who like Gaara, Temari etc - I have some bad news.
I remember that the last time Gaara and Temari were in the manga was over 90 chapters ago! That btw, is approx 10 volumes back. Even Rock Lee last appeared in the manga around 85 chapters back. And yes, I miss them too.

LOTS OF SPOILERS ALERT I shouldn't be here, because I hate watching Naruto (the anime). Kishimoto just keeps dragging the episodes (the episodes in water country were so painful and dragged out that I wanted to stab my eye out with a blunt pencil) and putting in fillers... I stopped watching after the Orochimaru part, because I was dying from outrage. Though I will admit, Naruto Shippudden is a little better than the general anime series IMO. But then, I only watched like 1 episode of that.
1. Neji: Because I love the way he looks, his personality, and I sympathize with him a lot because of his past.
2. Itachi: My brother reads the manga and told me the truth about him. At first, I hated him for what he did to Sasuke, and believed Sasuke had a legitimate reason to hate Itachi. But now that I know that...
Quote: Itachi's sort of the good guy after all, sacrificing himself for Konoha and everything. I like him now.
3. Yondaime Hokage: Yes, he's dead, and we don't know much about him except how strong he is. But without him, Naruto wouldn't have ended up with the uber-cool Kyubi he has now. Plus, I can sorta imagine him as a model for Naruto when (a long long long long long long x infinity time from now) Naruto finally becomes Hokage. There are other reasons too, but they, along with his real name, would be spoilers.
4. Kimimaro: B/c he's cool, that's why. xD
5. *Slaps forehead* How could I have forgotten Shikamaru??? The episodes where Shika fights are simply ingenious. I'm always wowed, even though there's still a lot of the talking typical in most, if not all, fights in Naruto.
1. Hinata: She is actually quite beautiful when she isn't being shy and self-conscious. She's also powerful, and I'm a serious sucker for the Hyuga family appearance.
2. Kurenai: She is a great mentor for Hinata. She is beautiful too. And I felt so sorry for her...
As for Sakura, Sasuke, Naruto, and Kakashi... I never liked Sakura from the beginning, mostly based on how she treated Naruto and was so helpless. I dunno if she's better now, because I haven't watched the recent eps. Sasuke is the King of all Gary Stus. All his: "Why me? I need to get more powerful! You don't understand me!" BS really got on my nerves, and...
Quote: his leaving for Orochimaru and nearly killing Naruto were the last straws. I was DONE with Naruto after that.
But, I admit, he really does have cool down to an art. Naruto... well, other than the fact that his English dub voice is seriously annoying, he is also extremely dense, especially with Hinata. And Kakashi: the only thing I have against him is that he made the mistake of focusing on Sasuke rather than Naruto. I know Sasuke needed the help at that time, but I was already thinking of Sasuke as a lost cause by then. I honestly think there was so much MORE Naruto could have learned from Kakashi, and yet, Kakashi didn't really give him the time of day. Otherwise, Kakashi is a really cool, chill guy. I love his mask and obsession with his special books.

My favorites are:
Naruto- Because he never gives up!
Kakashi- 'Cos he's always cool!
Hinata: I like the way she draws strength from Naruto's never-say-die attitude, and in effect becomes his equal.

Initially I didn't like Sai because of his mid-riff exposure. But as a character... he's hilarious! I love how he's so clueless about how to interact with people and watching the chaos that ensues.
Shikamaru is totally awesome with his wit and humor. Especially after watching him fight Hidan and totally kicking butt. It's one of the few times you actually see him get up close and engage in taijutsu, showing just how bold he can get. His determination for avenging a certain someone really impressed me.
Gaara: I was actually surprised to see that he is competent in taijutsu as evidenced by his ability to teach how to use weapons towards the end of Part I, and I'm pretty sure I've seen him use some in Part II. No doubt he has some of the strongest ninjutsu in the series. Initially I didn't like him, but his character really grew on me once he started showing some heart towards the end of Part I. Seeing his dedication to protecting his village as the Kazekage really made him one of my favorite characters.
