Sannotō is a relatively short, but muscular, man with bleach-blonde hair that is very spikey and reaches down to the point where his neck touches his shoulders. He has blueish-purple eyes, a trait not often found in the Uzumaki clan. Normally, Sannotō's left hand will appear as his right, but this changes when the man releases a seal on his left wrist. Upon release of said seal, his hand becomes wrapped in a glove with five long knives for fingers.
Sannotō wears a shinobi's uniform that is highly unusual: a close-fitting black t-shirt, black leg-tight jeans, black and white-stripped jacket with a hood connected to said jacket and gloves covering his hands. He is slender, but physically fit, with toned muscles common among average ninja of his age. Sannotō also has a rather prominent scar along the right side of his torso caused by an encounter with a hunter-nin from Kirigakure.
Personality and traits Edit
Sannotō's personality is extremely complex, with very few beings fortunate enough to understand it completely. Sannotō is known for his fun-loving nature, always partaking in a laugh and appreciating a good joke. This joking nature often seeps into Sannotō's battles, where he is quick to mess around with his opponents, who clearly do not enjoy it. To further enhance this, he constantly displays a casual smirk on his face, as if he knows something his opponents don't, which often is the case. This smirk never seems to fade, even when Sannotō is being serious. Because of this casual nature, many misconceive him as a weakling, when they are, in fact, seriously mislead - something Sannotō likes to throw in his opponents' faces after this revelation.
When off-duty, Sannotō is usually seen hanging out with his friends in Konohagakure, where their activities range from sitting around and reading, to playing sports. He has an incredibly strong bond to his friends or comrades, putting their safety before his own at all times, even when the situation doesn't call for it. Because of this, Sannotō often makes his friends feel inadequate; needing to be protected instead of being the protectors. Despite this feeling of inadequacy, his friends continue to stay true to him, knowing that Sannotō will eventually lighten up on them. Besides being protective, Sannotō is also remarkably devoted to his friends and cohorts, a loyalty that many comment upon to be "beyond the bonds of friendship."
As well as being a jokester to his friends - and opponents - Sannotō is possibly the most sarcastic person anyone could ever encounter, with just about every word that comes out of his mouth being heavily dunked into a bowl of sarcasm. His sarcasm knows no bounds, as Sannotō has shown himself to insult several high-ranking beings, ranging from mizukage, to the fire daimyō himself. Because of the amount of sarcasm he spouts out of his mouth, Sannotō frequently speaks with sarcastic undertones, even when trying to speak of a serious matter, although this is completely accidental. This is often referred to as his predominate trait, as people have come to know him as "that sarcastic little bastard," a title Sannotō wears with pride.
Having been born with an IQ that well surpasses many of his enemies, as well as just about everyone else, with Souka, an international criminal, being a close second to the older man, Sannotō has been noted for his brilliance on many occasion. This intelligence is rarely seen, however, as he would prefer to stay as his usual joking, sarcastic and friendly self, which typically gets in the way of Sannotō using his intellect to it's full effect. Despite this, his genius is all but present when the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist began to get serious in the initial battle of the Second Shinobi World War. After applying his mind in a serious fight, he can easily dominate an opponent with his mind alone, a feat very few are capable of accomplishing. Even Sannotō's comrades have commented that facing him when he's using his genius is like playing baseball using a broom as the bat and a golfball as the baseball.
Even though he hardly ever displays such a side, Sannotō possesses a serious demeanor as well. This side is rarely shown, only being seen in the toughest of battles. However, this does not last long, with the Namikaze clansman reverting back to his usual sarcastic, fun-loving self in a matter of moments. When he is in his "serious mode," as Sannotō calls it, he is extraordinarily stubborn and bull-headed, sticking by his claims to the end, even if these claims are mere snap-judgments, which constantly gets the young man into quite a bit of trouble, especially when judging a being of higher authority. This is seen in his conversation about Hashirama Senju, where Sannotō was smacked by his father because he spoke low of the inspirational being in the eyes of many.
Despite being a kind-hearted individual, Sannotō is also a very spiteful person; something he has no problem with. Although he doesn't like them, he is perfectly fine with holding grudges, with said grudges being everlasting. Many of his friends surmise that if Shōjiru holds a grudge against someone, they "will have the worst life ever." His most notable grudge is with his teammate Asura Murakami, a firm believer in catholicism, which contrasts Sannotō's atheism. This grudge has spanned over the course of then entire series (openly admitting that he was glad Asura had left their platoon after his desire to kill Hanzō became too strong an urge to fight). However, he did show sincere regret to learn that a powerful adversary such as Asura had passed in battle.
Possibly his most unique trait is Sannotō's atheism. Despite living in a world of buddhist teachings, he refuses to believe that anything was a deity of anything, an ideal which constantly butted-heads with Asura. It is revealed that Sannotō came to this conclusion after visiting a relatively unexplored continent, where they practiced atheism. Although he refuses to accept the concept of a god, he is more than willing to listen to another's interpretation of religion... until it gets to a point where they are lecturing him. At this point, Sannotō will lose all respect he once held for that individual, as he detests the idea of someone forcing their beliefs onto himself.
Although he does not mention it often, Sannotō is openly bisexual, and appears quite proud of it once brought up in a conversation. Despite preferring men more than that of women, he has stated that he loves both genders equally, which Sannotō has proven time and time again. Because of his leaning more towards males, he is often thought to be a homosexual, although this is later corrected by Sannotō himself once his is confronted about the subject. Even though he is quick to correct the misled person, he feels a strange, subconscious need to point out that, although not being homosexual himself, he respects them, as well as heterosexual people, something he feels "isn't said enough [in my opinion]."
Sannotō's last defining key trait is his overly-high opinion of himself. He is a self-proclaimed narcissist, frequently rambling on about how he considers himself to be more important than others at times. Because of this, he isn't quick to make friends, as Sannotō's narcissism gets in the way of establishing a friendly relationship with anyone he had not already befriended. This trait often puts his comrades at opposing ends with him, unable to properly work together as a team when Sannotō deems his abilities to exceed their own. However, he is quick to return to his usual self, believing himself to be no more important than that of an ordinary peasant. Despite these fluctuating levels of importance, Sannotō is still as friendly as always, even in his nacissistic state.
