hence why i personally prefer the second theory i proposed because i also believe that konohamaru should be more of a lesser character but many series have had spin off's including DBZ itself such as Neko Majin Z and others with continuation later with a related or similar character such as MAR and MAR Omega so i could see that happening with konohamaru, personally though i agree with you that if naruto does die it will be a very dignified death after a major accomplishment also you could say what happened to the 4th Hokage foreshadows what will happen to Naruto and possibly naruto could die while finially defeating Madara, with Madara's connection w/ the 9 tails and also the 9 tails connection with the 4th hokage, and since madara seems to be invincible and immortal and also responsible for quite a bit of the destruction that has happened to Konoha this would be an amazing achievement arguably better than any other hokage's achievements

I don't think spin-offs would be likely because the manga/anime is named after the main character "Naruto". So.. no Naruto, no story.DBZ and MAR are both based on an idea, gathering seven dragon balls and entering a magical world and saving it with 'ARMS' (i think that's what they were called), respectively. So technically those stories does not need a 'main' character. While this manga "Naruto" relies on the existence of Naruto. So if Naruto dies, the story and manga dies with it. But then again I'm not saying there isn't a possibility they all of a sudden make a different manga and call it "Sasuke" or "Konohamaru" or something silly like that. Who knows, but I think (i'm not sure) that Mashimoto has told an interviewer that he has an idea of the ending already. So I guess we'll see.

You know, i hate to give an average response, but i do think that he'll die protecting the village etc.

God knows how and when, but i can't imagine it being soon, like in the fight with Pein, but i'm hoping for another time skip to happen, i just want to see how awesome they'll be in a few years' time :x

Imagine how amazing it'll be if theres another Ninja war or something and Naruto/Sasuke/Sakura/Shikamaru were in command :G

well i hope he doesnt die or else that would really ruin the story IMO

I think it'll be something like he save the village becomes hokage(despite his brain) etc. but that's just what i think.

ok heres my predictions, look away if you havent read the manga or dont want any light spoilers:

kakashi will die, pein will kill tsunade opening up the position of hokage, naruto will come back having learned his hermit jutsu by using a shadow clone to draw in the natural energy and kill pein, naruto will then likely end up getting title of hokage as kakashi isnt around leaving only the final battle between team hebi and madara against konoha then itll all be over, thats roughly how i think itll go anyway, but then im discounting the fact that kabuto (and the bit of orochimaru that lives within him) is still lurking in the shadows somewhere

It's like being the Hokage, know the Kyuubi sealing technique, and pass it down to his child or something. After that, he dies.

I honestly don't see Naruto dying at the end of the series. It just wouldn't be right eh, we've been with him from day 1 and killing him off would just suck lol :(

I have a gut feeling that he won't die though, not in the way you guys think at least.

also i just thought of this but doesnt everyone who was given the necklace from tsunade all die? ... which is more foreshadowing although i personally really hope he doesnt die it does seem very probable

i was actually thinking that, at the beginning of the series naruto wanted to be hokage because he wanted the people's respect... but throughout the series he has gained everybody's respect, so i was thinking he would die in some kind of sacrifice situation to save the village... but

well he has to follow in his fathers footsteps really so hes bound to end up hokage at some point (even if it is king of the rubble pile) i cant honestly see them killing him off but i dont doubt others will go, tsunade has to be next really, being the only remaining sannin (unless youre counting kabuto/oro)

Well regardless of whether it is 'right' or not, authors and mangakas do that to their works. Naruto probably wouldn't be an exception. And just because a character has been introduced since day one, so to speak, it doesn't mean they are immune to anything. Authors can change and manipulate a story anyway they like, because ultimately it is their story. They can give characters life and just as easily take it away with a few words and some impelling story lines. It can happen to any character, for a good reason or not it can happens.

But if I were to ask... what do you guys think would be the ending? If anything there are probably a few answers to that questions just based on what people are saying in this thread.

1) Naruto becomes Hokage, saves sasuke, paves way for new generation... blah blah blah Happy Ending.
2) Naruto dies but his death was a meaningful one that ends with a peaceful world.

Those two seem to be the prominent theories, but regardless they are theories.

Now... people can discuss what they would like to see happen and propose an interesting 'alternate' ending, perhaps.

Here's my alternate ending, perhaps it's weird but it could be interesting if it turned out as such. Read it if you like, but if you're not interested then that's alright with me. This is all opinionated anyways, no one is right or wrong (yet).




Ok that was a bit of a long post, anyways just to make sure EVERYONE understands this... these are theories that I came up with in my little head, nothing else. I will not vouch for it to be likely or unlikely, I remain indifferent but either way it does not matter, I just thought I shared a piece of my mind.
