Naruto OC Tutorial - Ninja Stats and Jutsus by ThirdEcho Naruto OC Tutorial - Ninja Stats and Jutsus by ThirdEcho
This is an over simplified god-mod killing guide for the actual stats. Nothing more. I'm not a mass researcher (outside of class, anyways), so any tiny nuances have been left for for simplicity's sake.

**Note for my sanity**
I'm getting rather impatient with people leaving comments that say "I don't need this tutorial because I'm a Naru-tard" or "I'm able to make perfect OC, so this isn't for me, but I'm sure others will use it". That's great that you've got it figured out. Since this doesn't apply to you, I don't need a huge textwall of you defending yourself. Not to be rude, but I don't care. This is for the people that DO need it. Those of you who make the big textwalls of self-defense make me think you DO need it. :/ I'm not trying to be rude, but I do lash out when I'm impatient with people like that.

Also, I might leave things you deem important, sorry, but I'm making this simple... also... dudes, I don't watch a lot of anime, but I do draw it out of sheer joy. I'm doing this to help people. ^^; I don't even like Naruto, just my OC. Hahaaaaa.........

Very good ! I love these tutorial, it allows me to make a good OC; it's very difficult to make a good one, generally, when i create one, I make a equal numbers of weakness/force

Thanks! It really helps A LOT!

Theese tutorials of yours are very useful. But I have a question:
I'm creating an OC, and I want her to summon owls. Do you think it is way too much clichê?
And again, thanks for the help!

Um, didn't you READ Naruto Vol. ^%? Mangekyo Sharingan, or the Sharingan in general, appear when an Uchiha begins to truly hate, or whatever. I can't phrase it right. JUST READ IT, PERSON!!!

Dude, I do not have time to read all these. I don't give enough fucks. I probably even wrote that on there. The purpose of these is to make people pay attention to detail.

Don't be a weeaboo.
Was this thing even created when that chapter was out?
I won't read it because I have more important things to do like graduate university.

Thank you very much for taking the time to make all of these tutorials. I did a fair bit of research while creating my Naruto OC (she's still a Sue. I won't deny it), but I still find it interesting to read these, and there's always more to learn. It was a pleasure to read through this; you pointed out several things I had never considered. In this case it was the stats chart. Great job! :) The scroll layout looks really nice and you bring your points across very well. 
Again, thank you for posting these. ^^

Hope that asking you for advice would be ok. I'm making an OC and a clan to go with him they are a very water ninjutsu oriented clan but have no bloodline so I was going to give him a summon contract and was wondering which you think would be better. I'm stuck between eels, crabs and alligators so do you think you could help me out with the pick?

I know that you weren't asking me, but I think I may be able to narrow it down for you. The summon she really depend on the place he lives. Like Alligators enjoy swamp lands. Eels and Crabs typically go to oceans. So going outside of that, since it is a summon, I suggest going for something that wouldn't need to stay in water to survive. So Eels would be cut from your list.

On another note, why not use a bird that is closely related to water. Like a stork, a seagull, a crane, a goose, an ibis, or hell. Why not a swan. Get graceful with it. They can peck the crap out of your enemies eyes, poop on them from above, and can give you aerial support while tying in with the water.

I'm going through your Tutorials right now, and from a fellow Canadian, kudos! Putting all this together for others must have been quite a project, and it looks great! 
One thing I noticed (and I do not know if anyone else has mentioned it, if it was caught before) was in Section I, second paragraph from the end, you mention about keeping age/rank relative. This is a great point, but you quote that the Chuunin exams only occur every 3 years. It's actually every 6 months - twice a year. Kabuto mentions that he's participating in his 7th Chuunin exams with the Rookies during their first, this would mean that (3x7) he's been a Genin for at least 18-21 years (and as he's only 19-20 yrs old before the timeskip I find that highly unlikely DX). 
You may not care that much about changing it this long after posting the Tutorial, but I figured I'd at least give a heads up. (Proceeds to look through the rest of your stuff.)

I'm trying to make an Ice-themed character. I'm not here to explain him in detail, because he is still being made, but I am hunting for ideas for Ice-styled Jutsus and an Ice-themed summoning. I don't want to do a wolf, because like you mentioned. They are clich'e. I was thinking on the lines of a Snow Leopard, but is there any other options?

My recommendation is look at both already-made jutsu and IRL snow-related "things" from all over the globe, that's what I do.

You could do a number of animals. An arctic hare (rabbits have many cultural aspects in Japan), an Arctic Tern (it's like a white sparrow.... kinda), a dall sheep is a northern mountain goat.... hmm.... a wolverine would be an interesting one. You might be able to do an arctic Fox, but that might be pushing it...

Lynx, owls, bears and foxes are a bit.... uh..... cliché.... hmm... That's all I can really say.

hey i have further developed my character and i was wondering if she is any better now- she was deidara's childhood friend and although she never excelled in the academy (she was normally bored by any method of fighting as she found fighting led to wars and all wars brought death) she has a very powerful curse that turns her into a huge chakra bird whenever she is really angry or upset, or close to dying. she cant control the bird and it normally will kill anyone surrounding her. the village elders (she is from the hidden stone village) wanted to get rid of her, seeign as she was a threat to the people so they gave a her mission similar to itachis- where if she completes it she will never be allowed ot return to village again and become a missing ninja. in the end deidara comes with her and on the mission finds a forbidden scroll (teaching him his explosion/art/hand thingy) but when the mission is complete they end up splitting ways.
thats kind of a brief outline of my story so far, i was just wondering how that sounds and whether she would count as a MS then?

For making a second generation OC, should they learn/inherit certain skills from their parents such as my KisaSaku kid, who inherited her father's giant charkra reserves and is outstanding in swordsmanship?

Not really, that's not actually how genetics work.
Giant chakra reserves and being outstanding in swordsmanship makes me think more and more that your OC is a MS.

my OC..she is very weak and quitted being a ninja. She started 'studying' medics and she can use jutsu (at average level, but her stamina, strength and constitution are very bad). So, she's not really a fighter and doesn't have any special jutsu's, The only thing that's special about her is that's she's physically very weak, but still doesn't use jutsu very often (she uses her own-made medicinal drinks-things), and she can learn things (like medics) very fast....
What do you think....? is it very bad? not Original enough?

my oc has a powerful kekkei genkai and can summon and honeyish red bird. she has pretty much no stamina and low self-esteem to try and lower her strength and make her look less "perfect". would that counted as a mary sue?
Reply
:iconthirdecho:
ThirdEcho Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Summoning and kekkei genkai use are intertwined, she'd also have to be able to sustain the summon if it was related to her kekkei gen kai, therefore, she'd be able to do almost nothing with her summon.

Also, so you know, something that she would summon with her blood would likely not have a mind of its own, just so you know, it would also have a limited range it could go before desummoning without her near by.

But hey, if you want a useless character that has a typically useless kekkei genkai... I suppose that does indeed work.

You didn't specify what the other abilities were. By the way, you might consider not making her a summoner at all if she has kekkei genkai...

:iconmeerabelle:
Meerabelle Featured By Owner May 8, 2013  Student General Artist
ok thanks. umm im actually not sure if kekkei genkai is the right word. its more like a monster who was born inside her (different from a tailed beast) and she has access to some of its power
Reply
:iconthirdecho:
ThirdEcho Featured By Owner May 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, if she's able to summon it outside herself, it would indicate she has released it ergo, "some" is not reallllyyyyy the word. It would make more sense to have a seal somewhere on her body that she's had since birth, likely something each blood-clan member has and it would better function as something similar to Kakashi's ninja hounds, except this summoned animal is HERS. Sort of like a by-birth partnership between the clan and the ninja animal. The ninja animal would likely also have one ability. For the ninja hounds, it's tracking (because they're dogs, obviously). For the case of a bird... likely just the ability to fly and see things in the distance would seem right, but it would remain interesting, believable and relatively normal.

You could call the clan the "Tengu" clan (天狗; means "heavenly dog," but the word ACTUALLY refers to the bird-gods of ancient Japanese lore). The tengu often had "human" features in some depictions, but to have the two species appart (yet joined by blood-summon) would be very interesting. My advice is also to have said family from the Hidden Stone village in the mountains as the Tengu are often associated with mountains (perches).
If you wanted a name, perhaps "Akako Tengu" (赤子・天狗) and give her red-ish (as in actual red, not orange) hair. "Akako" means "red child", since you said her bird was red. It would be a very interesting clan and if you don't jump on this idea, I'm going to (because the more I play with this the more interested I get).


SO YEEEEP. This is why I make good OCs... because I know various, random, and unimportant things. :v

thanks so much that sound really good! and I think i'll use it if you don't mind XD I was planning on making her live in the hidden stone any way seeing as I think that's where deidara came from and they were child hood friends. also my character has blonde hair so are there any good names for that?
and again, thanks heaps :D

:iconthirdecho:
ThirdEcho Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Names? Huh, well, since she's of the Tengu clan, you don't really need to follow much for guidelines, however, naming her 天狗・羽子 (Tengu Haneko) might be nice. While Haneko is technically a name, it's not really used as the kanji used to make it in Japanese have no meaning (some names are actually like that. Unrelated kanji in a name give it no meaning). The meaning of the name I have given is passable in Naruto as believable. 羽 (Kun-reading is 'hane', On-reading is 'u') means feathers or, sometimes, wings and 子 is almost always read as 'ko,' like in child/kodomo for example). Where it's a Japanese name it's pronounced "ha-ne-koh".

This would essentially be the female equivalent to "Tsubasa," only not cliché and/or over-used. Actually, it's a pretty fucking good name. I'm giving you all my good ideas. >__>

Do you mean to make it not a main canon? It's hard to say. I'd probably leave out the kekkei-genkai all together. It's more of a surprise to "viewers" to have a seemingly average ninja with an impressive bloodline. I would need design concepts or something.

hehe well.. your right. With that in mind however I should note that she likes Pocky, walking around aimlessly and "people watching" a game me and my friends play where we guess someones personality. She dislikes swimming, ansty know-it-alls and sweet bean soup. I am currently working on what she looks like so far I know what she is wearing and her eye colour -_-

ThirdEcho Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Pocky really isn't an acceptable "like" for a character of Naruto. Not only is that a real-life company, industry has not been invented... also, culturally, cookies are not part of Asian culture, which will make this character seem strange. I have a 25 year old Chinese friend, for example, who, prior to meeting me, had never had a homemade cookie and it blows his mind that they're so easy to make. If you want this character to love sweets, I recommend traditional sweets, such as mochi (sakura mochi is really tasty!).

Little details make a character convincing. :)

I just googled Mochi it looks really good! Yea and I see what you mean about tsohe small details(I really like the mochi idea). So do you see any flaws in my kekkei I really don't want it to be that powerful, and something I left out on my statistic sheet is that the her clan comes from uzushiogakure.

You didn't know what mochi was!? Oh you poor child.
Go learn to make it. It's phenomenal the sakura kind is really sweet and is the greatest smelling anything in the entire world, but my favorite mochi is just the plain white.

I didn't see anything on the kekkeigenkai...
