Karin is a student at Konoha High School in the same class as Sakura and Sakura's rival. She has a crush on Sasuke and is the one responsible for Sakura's haircut.


Karin is an outgoing person who is commonly seen showing off and who would do anything to obtain Sasuke's love, who she has a crush on. This crush has developed, though, and she eventually confesses to Sasuke that she had truly loved him all along.

She also seems to enjoy fashion and shopping, as she is casually seen in the mall with her friends shopping for clothes.


Karin has red eyes and red hair which she wears in an unusual hairstyle: her hair is short and spiky on the right side, while longer and straight on the left side giving half her hair the appearance of being unkempt on one side, while the other side is. She wears brown, round glasses as well.


Karin's Friends

They always follow Karin around, always stating that "they're number one". They were first seen in Chapter 1, trying to pick a fight with Ino, Hinata and Sakura when they were in the comfort room. They appear again in Chapter 2 assisting Karin in cutting off Sakura's hair.

Sakura HarunoEdit

Sakura and Karin were both in love with Sasuke for some time, for this reason they hate each other and fight on almost every encounter they have, becoming "love rivals". Through most of their fighting is just verbal, Karin proved at times that she can resort to violence in order to get Sakura away from Sasuke. Keeping in mind that Sasuke likes long-haired girls, she cuts Sakura's hair against her will on the mall's bathroom, although she got scared of her result. After Sasuke declared his love for Sakura in public, Karin was very shocked and Sakura commented that "she didn't bother again".

However, on the Return to Class arc, she was seen spreading rumours to complicate Sakura and Sasuke's relationship, meaning that she still hated Sakura, through she didn't know it was her who spread the rumours.

Sasuke UchihaEdit

Karin had a crush on Sasuke since the beginning of the series, although Sasuke never acknowledged her. After she cut Sakura's hair because she felt threatened by it, Sasuke starts disliking her. However, in the Return to Class arc, Karin is shown to have not given up on Sasuke, and confesses to him that all she did was because she truly loved him. She does not get a response, though, and walks away.

After Sasuke broke up with Sakura, Sasuke joins Karin's circle of friends, which included Juugo and Suigetsu as well. While they seemed close, it is unknown if Sasuke and Karin were on a relationship from then onwards.

Suigetsu HozukiEdit

Suigetsu and Karin were shown to be friends while Naruto and Neji fought in Preparing for the exams arc. It is later revealed that they attend the same class, and have been friends for some time. Suigetsu seems to enjoy teasing Karin, specially about her crush on Sasuke, and it has been suggested that he could have feelings for her more than once.


Karin quickly befriends Juugo when he enters Konoha High School on the Return to Class arc, and he is seen around her and Suigetsu on multiple occasions. While not much interaction is seen between the two because of his quiet nature, Juugo seems to enjoy her company and finds her relationship with Suigetsu quite interesting.
