Gaara grew up to be a powerful shinobi and was eventually appointed as the Fifth Kazekage of Sunagakure. He became one of the most powerful ninjas in his generation, gaining many loyal followers who respected him as both a person and as Kazekage. His entire life story is detailed in this article.
Who Was Gaara? What Is His Story?
Gaara was born on an unknown day to the Fourth Kazekage and his wife, Karura. His mother loved him deeply and showered him with affection with unwavering patience during her pregnancy. Gaara’s early life was a happy one, as he was surrounded by love from his parents, sister, and other family members.
However, this all changed when his mother died shortly after giving birth to her second child Temari only hours before. This tragic event would change both of their lives forever.
From when he was a child, Gaara was always alone and was viewed by the villagers as a monster due to his destructive tendencies and the Shukaku within him.
Gaara’s Hidden Ability
It is said that Gaara, at the age of five, had already manifested the ability to use Sand Manipulation. He began to show a strong affinity for sand manipulation from the time he was young. However, his career in Sand Village was a short one due to his bad temper and destructive nature.
Gaara became an outcast because of this. He was branded as a monster. His birthplace and people hated him because of him. The latter part is what makes Gaara such a great character and why he is also an antagonist in many shounen mangas.
Life Of Gaara-
Gaara left Sand along with his family as soon as he was old enough to travel, and they eventually arrived at Sunagakure. Gaara’s father was a very kind man, but he believed that Gaara had too much of a bad temper and was dangerous. He tried his best to train Gaara, who didn’t want to become one of those “monster-nin”.
So he decided to go off on his own and never return. He eventually became Kazekage of Suna, under the tutelage of his father’s beloved teacher Jiraiya.
Gaara became very powerful during this time and developed many techniques based on Sand manipulation. He soon became the strongest shinobi in Sunagakure and had swelled his army. Gaara still kept his cool, though was also a great leader as well.
Gaara was always cool, calm, and collected even when he was young. He had a gift for being able to control people. He didn’t use it often, but he could do it if the situation required it or if he felt like it. His personality is very similar to Naruto Uzumaki’s; they are both carefree and reckless by nature.
Gaara has a very calm and collected personality and rarely ever gets angry or upset with anyone. However, in certain situations, he can become very short-tempered (such as when his sister Temari threatened to kill herself).
The True Powers Of Kazekage Gaara-
1. Sand Control
Gaara could control vast amounts of sand. He used his sand manipulation often in battle, using it in many ways, including as a shield, a weapon, and for offensive attacks.
2. Shukaku (One-Tailed Beast)
The final and strongest ability of Gaara was his amazing power as the jinchūriki of the One-Tailed Beast Shukaku. He is called the ‘Red Monster’, or ‘Demonic Sand Funk’.
3. Sand Release: Iron Sand
Like with the other Sand Release techniques, Gaara’s sand is made out of iron. This technique allows him to create iron sand around his body and form it into his own body to protect himself. He uses this in conjunction with his other techniques. He can also use this technique as a non-solid wall of iron sand to block an enemy’s attack or simply for cover or cover for his allies.
4. Sand Prison
An offensive move of the sand release can trap enemies by pulling them through the ground and pummeling them from all sides until they are dead or unconscious.
How did Gaara become the Kazekage so quickly?
Gaara traveled to Sunagakure after his father had died. He lived with Jiraiya. It is unknown how exactly he became Kazekage of Sand Village. But it’s speculated that he did it by doing nothing more than being a lumbering brute and controlling huge quantities of sand.
How did Gaara become Jinchūriki?
Gaara was born as the son of Sarura and her husband Fuguki. And therefore his mother belongs to one of the oldest clans in Sunagakure. It is said that his mother waited for him to be born during the First Shinobi World War until he was born. He was born only four hours after her death. A day later, he was orphaned and found by Fuguki. With no other family, Gaara took the name Sarura of Moon’s Face as an adopted son and began a life as a shinobi.
