Konohamaru was born to two elite ninja who served as both an jonin and a Anbu directly under the Hokage's command. Konohamaru was also born as the Grandson to the late Sarutobi Biwako, and the late Sarutobi Hiruzen. He is also the Grandnephew to the late Sarutobi Asuma. He was named after the village of Konoha by his grandfather. Because Hiruzen was the Third Hokage, Konohamaru was never referred to by his name by the villagers, he was only called "Honorable Grandson" (お孫様). Wanting to be acknowledged as a person and not simply the Hokage's grandson, Konohamaru began trying to defeat Hiruzen in order to replace him as Hokage.
Although he's introduced midway through a failed attempt to defeat his grandfather, Konohamaru initially finds a certain enjoyment in his status as the Hokage's grandson. He is often spared from being punished for his actions, and will goad people who are unwilling to take a hand against him. When Uzumaki Naruto shows no restraint towards him and freely hits him, Konohamaru becomes impressed by him and declares Naruto to be both his rival and role model, variously calling him "Oyabun" (オヤブン) and "Niichan" (兄ちゃん). Like Naruto, Konohamaru tends to be loud, headstrong, spends an inordinate amount of time inventing perverted ninjutsu. Including in the anime, he even impersonates Naruto's kabuki ninja registration photograph when taking his own.
While most of Konohamaru's reverence for Naruto is well-deserved, some of Konohamaru's praise for him is owed more to his own gullibility and denseness. When he trips during their first meeting he assumes Naruto did something, unwilling to blame his own clumsiness. Konohamaru's Cloak of Invisibility Technique is constantly discovered by Naruto not because of Naruto's skill but rather because Konohamaru's disguises are so poor. Naruto encourages this to a degree, never refusing the compliments and never correcting Konohamaru's perception of him as a lady's man.
When frustrated or excited he ends many of his sentences with "kore" (コレ), much like Naruto does with "dattebayo". In Part II, Konohamaru and his teammates would still sneak up on Naruto. An example being when Naruto become the Hero of Konoha for defeating Pain. When Naruto was heading to the rebuild Ramen Ichiraku Bar, Konohamaru and his teammate were sneaking up on Naruto in person. But Naruto notice their chakra presence, and used tactics to get away from the group while they kept asking him for an interview so they can show it to the current Ninja Academy students that look up to him.
Konohamaru has shown immense emotional endurance, recovering from tragedies close to his heart, such as the deaths of his grandfather and his uncle, Sarutobi Asuma, in a relatively short time. Therefore displaying an ability to cope with heart-shattering grief that goes beyond his years. This aspect of his personality is likely in emulation of Naruto's take on the Will of Fire, as Naruto also had to cope with immense loss and depression at a young age, but still stuck to his optimistic and willful outlook.
Konohamaru also picks up a number of good qualities from Naruto, such as the realization that becoming the Hokage is a long process that there are no shortcuts for. This commits Konohamaru to his studies in the Ninja Academy and makes the job of his tutor, Ebisu, considerably easier. In his quest to rise to Naruto's level, Konohamaru masters a number of jonin-level jutsu while still a genin. He also adopts a refusal to run from a fight, even against superior opponents. In the anime, Konohamaru eventually moves past his competition with Naruto for the Hokage mantle, deciding instead that he will become Hokage only after Naruto has had his turn. Years later, Konohamaru becomes emotional at the prospect that he can mentor Naruto's son, Uzumaki Boruto, in the same way that Naruto mentored him. His compassion for Boruto has grown to brotherly-love, secretly loving how Boruto would often refer to him as "Big Brother" and wants greatly to see Boruto flourish. He has also formed a strong bond with Hyuga Hanabi, who also has a similar compassion for Boruto.
AppearanceKonohamaru has short spiky brown hair and black eyes. He also has a small chip in his tooth. In Part I, he wore a yellow shirt with the Konoha symbol in red, grey shorts, and a long blue scarf. When he was first introduced, Konohamaru wore a grey helmet that had an orange frowning face on the right side, a red circle on the left side, and had a hole at the top for his hair to stick out of.
Eventually, he replaced the helmet with the pair of goggles that Naruto gave him after Umino Iruka gave the former his forehead protector.In Part II, Konohamaru grew in size and wears a similar outfit as his previous one, with longer pants and a pale green jacket with a dark green stripe down the middle. He also retains his long scarf and now wears a Konoha forehead protector in place of his goggles. In some of Konohamaru's appearances in the anime, he is depicted with blush marks on his cheeks.
Two years after the war, his outfit consists of a grey/black zip-up jacket. While wearing dark grey pants, sandals, and bandages around both his arms. He does not wear his scarf at all during this time. For Naruto and Hinata Hyūga's wedding, he wears a formal attire.
Several years later, upon reaching adulthood, he has grown into a tall young man with spiky hair, while wearing his long blue scarf around his neck again. In the Boruto movie, Konohamaru wears the new standard flak jacket along with a short blue scarf around his neck, dark blue pants and black sandals. He also wears a simple black elastic headband and a red armband with the Sarutobi crest on his left arm.
AbilitiesKonohamaru's performance in the Ninja Academy was rather poor, failing to properly use basic techniques such as the Cloak of Invisibility Technique and Transformation Technique. After meeting Naruto, he tried branching out into variations of the Sexy Technique, with no practical use. As a genin in Part II, Konohamaru began displaying aptitude as a shinobi, engaging the Naraka Path during Pain's Assault. During the rebuilding efforts of Konoha after Pain's invasion, Konohamaru was in better physical shape than his teammates, being able continue to fetch and carry building materials (wood, etc.), while his teammates are forced to sit and rest for periods of time, not having his stamina. By adulthood, he had achieved the rank of Jonin, and his skills were held in high regard by Aburame Shino.
Konohamaru has displayed a high level of speed and evasive skills, as shown when he could dodge most of the Naraka Path's attacks in their short skirmish. In the anime, he has shown some skill in taijutsu, being able to hold his own in a scuffle with Watase. During said scuffle, he demonstrated a high level of pain tolerance, as he was able to grab a kunai without flinching, although his hand received a bleeding wound from it. Konohamaru also has the most stamina out of his team-mates, as shown during the work to rebuild Konoha after Pain's Invasion, while Konohamaru was easily carrying wood, Udon and Moegi were worn out. As an adult, he shown noticeable taijutsu prowess, able to effortlessly block Boruto's assault and just as easily subdue him.
After meeting Naruto, much of his arsenal becomes comprised of sexy techniques he learned from or based off Naruto's. He did however with some instruction from Naruto learn the jonin-level Shadow Clone Technique. In the anime, he has also demonstrated aptitude with other high-level techniques such as the Shuriken Shadow Clone Technique as well as with the generic Body Flicker Technique. In the anime, by the time he became a Ninja Academy teacher, Konohamaru became able to summon giant toads to aid him in battle.
RasenganSometime during Part I in the Manga (Part II in the anime), Naruto taught Konohamaru how to use the Rasengan. His version of the Rasengan is, like Naruto's, performed using a shadow clone to control the power of the chakra, but is smaller than Naruto's (regular-sized in the anime). It was also shown that Konohamaru holds the Rasengan with a shadow clone the way Naruto originally held his Big Ball Rasengan. After hearing how he used Rasengan against Pain, Naruto praised him, and promised Konohamaru that he would teach him how to make The Big Ball Rasengan. Later, in the anime, Konohamaru learned how on his own to perform the Big Ball Rasengan, greatly shocking Naruto.
Nature TransformationIn lieu of his great talent, the anime has shown that Konohamaru has also displayed competent use of nature transformation, being able to use Fire, Wind and Yang Release techniques. His proficiency with Fire Release in particular has allowed him to learn the Sarutobi Clan's Fire Release: Great Flame Technique, as well as his grandfather's Fire Release: Fire Dragon Flame Bullet. In the anime, he is also able to use Lightning Release, creating a stream around him to repel enemies.
In Part I of the anime, Konohamaru shows that he is quite knowledgeable about chakra and fairly skilled in making traps. After the timeskip, he is shown to be fairly analytical in battle, able to quickly analyse and understand the mechanisms of his opponent's technique.
Naruto (Part l)
Konohamaru barges into his grandfather's, office intent on finally defeating him and thus replacing him as Hokage. He immediately trips on entering and assumes that Uzumaki Naruto, the only other person in the room, is responsible. Although Ebisu, his tutor, tried to discourage this, it was only through Naruto's influence that Konohamaru realised that there would be no shortcut to becoming Hokage. Naruto defeat Ebisu with his Harlem Sexy Technique. This made Konohamaru realize of geeting the Hokage Title by force. Instead, it is a dream that would take many years of hard work and discipline to realize. Naruto told Konohamaru about his past, and that he has three people that acknowledges him (Umino Iruka, Sarutobi Hiruzen, and Konohamaru himself). Konohamaru decided to make Naruto his rival, in which Naruto accepted the Challenge.

In the anime, Konohamaru later becomes a teacher at the Ninja Academy. On the day of the entrance ceremony at the Ninja Academy, Konohamaru subdues Boruto after he damages the Hokage Monument, and reminds him from today to address him as sensei. Later while teaching the students about summoning alongside Shino, Konohamaru demonstrated the art by summoning Gamagoro. His performance gained great popularity with several of the students. After another argument began between the various students, Shino voiced his dismay at the students' continued bickering, Konohamaru noted that Shino's own fellow students had a similar squabbling back in the day, Konohamaru also noted that such drive helps one mature. This inspired Shino to organize a racing competition against the various students. As the contest began heat up, Boruto tried to summon a creature to aid him, unexpectedly summoning some kind of snake creature.

Once Naruto and Boruto came to him and Iruka, Konohamaru scolded Boruto for the prank, to which Boruto didn't care which annoyed Konohamaru.
As the class passed the written exams and advanced to the final test, the practical exams, they were brought to the training fields. There, Konohamaru joined Anko and Shino as proctors for the exam, where they would fight the students for 24 hours to evaluate their respective performances. To make things fairer for the students, the teachers each wore special markers on their chest that if hit would eliminate said teacher from the exam. The head proctor however turned out to be Kakashi. Employing his infamous bell test method, he told the students that only the student who gets the bell from him would pass the test.
As the test began, Konohamaru and the other teachers swiftly began subduing various students and capturing them. By nightfall, the proctors began to wonder if their students would figure out the true nature behind the test. Soon afterwards, the remaining students, following a plan by Boruto, were able to free the captured students. Then facing off against the teachers once more, Konohamaru was tricked by Boruto and Sarada into thinking they were the other, letting Sarada capture him in a genjutsu to throw off his perception, letting them strike the marker to defeat him. By the end of the test, Kakashi chose to pass all the students as while none of them got the bell, they learned the true lesson of the test; loyalty and team-work.
For Team 7's first mission, they were assigned a D-rank to aid the Green Banks Village who were being attacked by bandits for their crops. Upon arriving, they learned that the only way for normal people to enter the village was by a great retracting bridge. They also learned that the previous village leader, who oversaw the bridge's construction, passed away recently, leaving his daughter Kiri to inherit the position. Kiri, while uncertain about trusting in such young ninja, revealed that she withheld the full nature of the mission when she requested it. As she revealed that the attackers were actually trained ninja, which made Konohamaru concerned as this would make the mission at least B-rank in danger.
While Konohamaru considered whether or not to continue the mission despite the deception, the village was attacked, prompting Boruto rushed off. Boruto was quickly pressured by the older ninja, but was saved by Konohamaru, as the foe quickly retreated after realising that he was a Konoha-nin. As Konohamaru realised that there was more being hidden, he confronted Kiri. She confessed that the enemy ninja were after the deed to the bridge, which was the main source of income for the village. Later that night, as another villager was attacked, Team 7 went into action, only to find that several of the villagers were being controlled by genjutsu. They managed to harmlessly subdue the villagers, but Kiri was abducted.
Afterwards, Team 7 met with the enemy shinobi to exchange the deed for Kiri. The enemies however intended to kill everyone. Konohamaru dealt with Hidari while Mitsuki and the others retreated with Kiri. While initially subdued by his opponent, Konohamaru escaped with his Rasengan. Once showing his power by destroying a rock surface, Hidari was overwhelmed in fear and fainted. With this and the genin defeated the other enemy, Ashimaru, the mission was completed.
Konohamaru later sent his team to deal with a bank robber, Haguruma. After they convinced the man to turn himself in, it was learned Hagurama was manipulated into doing this, as it was a diversion for the Byakuya Gang to steal jewels from a high-level vault.
Later, the villagers supporting the Byakuya Gang began acting out against companies accused of corrupt actions. Konohamaru joined his fellow ninja in working to pacify the situation. Ultimately, it was discovered that several of the protestors were under genjutsu. Konohamaru helped in dispelling the genjutsu. This along with Naruto's speech was able to peacefully end the riots.
Konohamaru is shown when his team gets a mission. But he scolds Boruto when the latter wants to get the mission that Team Udon has. Before leaving Konohamaru speaks to Udon for old times sake.
While he delivers a mission report to Shikamaru, who is dealing with Naruto's paperwork while Naruto is away meeting with the daimyō. Konohamaru notices papers regarding the upcoming Chunin Exams, and Shikamaru tells him to think about his genin. Konohamaru discusses the subject with Moegi, Udon, and Shino, pointing out Shino's students, who have caused their share of trouble, will be participating.
At nighttime while eating, Konohamaru says he is unsure if he'll recommend Boruto to take the exam. Because he is worry that Boruto has relied too much on luck so far, and that failure in the exam will crush him. However Konohamaru gets drunk with Hanabi. After seeing that she favors Boruto just like him.
Team 7 was later assigned to follow a trail of bandits who stole from the Thunder Train. When they arrived at the mines where they thieves were last seen, they learned that one of the thieves was arrested after he had come out completely traumatised, claiming that "the white one" killed his allies. This concerned Konohamaru, wondering if it could be a White Zetsu from the Fourth Shinobi World War. Team 7 decided to investigate more carefully. Inside, they found the three other thieves brutally killed, and soon after met the culprit, a mutated White Zetsu.
Konohamaru was seen in a flashback by Naruto.
During Naruto's flashback to the members of the village when he was gathering natural energy to enter Sage Mode, Konohamaru can been seen amongst the villagers.
Two years after the end of the Fourth Shinobi War, Konohamaru goes through his grandfather's belonging. Konohamaru first appears telling Naruto he wishes to show him something from his grandfather's closet. While doing so he finds a scarf knitted by Naruto's mother, which he gives to Naruto to remember her by. They wander around the village afterwards and Konohamaru helps Naruto carry all the Rinne Festival gifts he receives. A few months later, Konohamaru attends Naruto's marriage to Hyuga Hinata.
Now a jonin, Konohamaru is placed in charge of a team consisting of, Uzumaki Boruto along with Uchiha Sarada and Mitsuki. During a mission to capture a panda attacking a nearby village, Konohamaru then uses the newly-invented Kote to subdue it. While demonstrating it afterwards he accidentally destroys a farm.
When they report to Naruto, Boruto wants to make that Naruto isn't a shadow clone. However he tells them that he isn't a shadow clone. Naruto also insists that Boruto address him as "The Seventh" rather than "Dad" in his office. Naruto then asks how did the mission go, but before Knohamaru can answer. Boruto energeticly shouts that the mission was easy with his prodigious skills including that he doesn't need teamwork. Naruto tries to lecture Boruto with the topic of teamwork, even trying to remind the importance of teamwork to Boruto. But he said he could do missions with just his clones. Including that he already learned Wind Release, Lighting Release and now Water Release. Naruto then asks Knohamaru what has he been teaching Boruto. But Boruto tells Naruto that he doesn't know anything about him, and not to blame Konohamaru. Including that he never bothers to watch over him. Angered that his father is still spending more time working, Boruto reminds Naruto that it's Himawari's birthday and he better be at home or else Boruto will never forgive him.
Then Katasuke entered soon after to ask Naruto's permission to allow the participants of the upcoming Chunin Exams to wear his latest invention, the Kote, a forearm device that stores various types of ninjutsu inside of it. However Naruto refused since it did not show one's true potential as a shinobi and saw it as a sign of cheating. Since Naruto had forbid the Kote to be use in the Chunin exams, this angers Boruto once Katasuke left the office. He then leaves the office saying that this isn't the lame era Naruto grew up in. Konohamaru then calls out Boruto's name as he slams the door.
Konohamaru tries to enter his team in the upcoming Chunin Exams. Although Sarada and Mitsuki are interested, Boruto is not. He has a change of heart after meeting Uchiha Sasuke and approaches Konohamaru to teach him the Rasengan, a prerequisite to train under Sasuke. Konohamaru enthusiastically agrees and immediately begins instructing him in how to use it. After days of hard training, Boruto is ultimately successful. Sasuke got Konohamaru's agreement to let him take over in training Boruto, while also thanking Konohamaru for his good work in training Sarada in his absence.
Konohamaru watches his students' matches during the Chunin Exams' final rounds a few weeks later. When the exams are interrupted by Kinshiki and Momoshiki, Konohamaru helped evacuate people from the arena.
At the end of the movie, Konohamaru and his students are assigned to the mission of once again capturing the giant panda that was running loose within the village. While Konohamaru attempts to handle it himself at first, he is forced to flee when the panda begins to chase him. He is lastly seen during the end credits.
Boruto Naruto Next Generations Manga
Konohamaru provides his team with instructions through the earphones during their mission to capture Mujina Bandits. Although Boruto eventually ruins the plan of tracking them to their boss, Konohamaru still considers the mission a success after arriving at the scene. Later, Konohamaru asks Metal Lee to call Boruto to the Hokage building, where he introduces Madoka Tento. The son of the Fire Daimyo, to Boruto and entrusts the latter with the mission of protecting him during his visit to Konohagakure. Boruto is dissatisfied with the task and tries to object, but Konohamaru states that the Daimyo personally picked up Boruto for this mission. Also, he privately tells Boruto that he should learn about such things as another side of the ninja career. Three days later after Boruto's bodyguard mission was finished, Konohamaru presented his entire team with their first B-rank mission. While confident they were ready, Konohamaru warned them that their status as ninja would fall if they failed their first high-level mission and as punishment would have to thoroughly clean up his dirty office.
On the day of the mission, Konohamaru was shocked to see that his entire team was a no-show. He later learned that they instead worked together to save the daimyo's son who was kidnapped by the Mujin Bandits. While applaud his students for simultaneously saving Tento and capturing the Mujin Bandits, he insisted that they would still have to be punished for abandoning their official mission.
Later on a blimp slipping through the Land of Fire's air defence network undetected and crashing, Konohamaru and Mugino are sent on mission to investigate it. Upon arriving at the blimp on the Land of Fire's border, he discovers that inside contains a container that was recently opened. While unsure what was inside, he has a dreadful feeling about it. While inspecting the container, he found a data unit. After downloading its information, he found Mugino badly injured, looking up to find the assailant, which turned out to be a group of advanced self-moving Puppets. Konohamaru managed to escape with Mugino, as the puppets seemed programmed to only protect the blimp. Later, while tending to Mugino's injuries while in a cave, Konohamaru was found by his students and Katasuke Tōno. While discussing what happened, they were confronted by Ao, who held them at gun-point to question them about what they learned inside the blimp.
Ao then unleashed a barrage of Fire Release Bullets from his gun, making everyone realising that he a scientific ninja tool. Konohamaru, with help from Katsuke, was able to destroy Ao's gun. As Konohamaru asked if this had anything to do with the organisation Kara, Ao unleashed a hidden weapon from his prosthetic shoulder, blasting Konohamaru. He then attacked Katsuke and stole one of his technique-absorbing gauntlets. After testing it himself on Boruto's Rasengan, Ao concluded that now they had to die to keep the organisation a secret. Mugino then held Ao down long enough to collapse the cave on him and Ao to save his allies. His sacrifice however turned futile as Ao quickly clawed his way out of the rubble, prompting Konohamaru and his team to retreat. As they took shelter, Katsuke admitted to his shame that the enemies' access to advanced ninja tech was because they brainwashed him into giving up his research. As Konohamaru insisted that they had to return the data he found on the blimp to Konohagakure. Boruto however insisted that they had to stop before he continued to abuse the technology that Katasuke gave him.
The team then devised a plan to take advantage of Ao's high usage of ninja tech. To begin their counterattack, Mitsuki, Sarada, and Konohamaru pressured Ao with a barrage of ninjutsu attacks, all of which were quickly absorbed by the gauntlet. Boruto then attacked from Ao's blindside during the assault with his chakra-blade, but the seasoned enemy saw through the attack, quickly blocking with his prosthetic arm, forcing Boruto to drop his weapon. Ao then grabbed the tech weapon and stabbed Boruto in the chest. Boruto however, revealed to be a shadow clone, began the next part of the team's plan, grabbing onto Ao, letting Mitsuki restrict Ao's hand on the activated prototype weapon, which quickly drained Ao of his stamina. Ao managed to break free and faced off against Boruto's Rasengan. He attempted to absorb it, but Boruto revealed to be wearing the other absorbing gauntlet, using it to cancel the two gauntlets' absorbing power long enough to hit Ao with the Rasengan.
As the team surrounded the seemingly defeated foe, Konohamaru noticed a sneak attack from a bunch of Mirror Drones. He blocked the attack on Boruto with his own body, knocking him out. Boruto however was able to outsmart Ao and defeat him. Once Konohamaru came to, he was impressed by his student's growth. The moment was ruined however when Kashin Koji appeared and killed Ao with his Summoning: Boiler Toad. The mysterious man than calmly introduced himself.
