There are no enemies here in front of me, for we all bear the pain of having been hurt by the Akatsuki! There is no Sand, no Stone, no Leaf, no Mist, or Cloud! We are all simply ninja! If you still can't forgive the Sand, you can come back and face me when the war is over! That friend who saved me is now a target of our enemy! If he falls into their hands, the world as we know it is finished! I want to protect that friend, and this world!

Possible Opponents


Gaara is the son of the Fourth Kazekage Rasa, who had the tailed beast known as Shukaku the One-Tail sealed in the unborn child's body to serve the Hidden Sand Village's ultimate weapon. But things did not work as intended since Gaara could not properly consider Shukaku and becomes maladjusted from being ostracized as a child. Rasa's attempt to have him killed, especially at the hand of his maternal uncle, that led to Gaara to believe that killing others justifies his own existence. But Gaara's outlook changes on the day he meets fellow jinchuriki Naruto Uzumaki during the Chunin exams and lost to him. Realizing that friends made Naruto stronger, Gaara renounced his old ideology and eventually wins his people's trust as he becomes the Fifth Kazekage prior to losing Shukaku to the Akatsuki.

Ninja Training

  • Medium Chakra reserves. (Large Chakra reserves on-par with Naruto Uzumaki or Killer Bee as the Jinchuriki of the One-Tail, Shukaku.)
  • Is proficient with abnormal weaponry like the Rope Dart.
  • Gaara is ineffective in Taijutsu, as he's spent almost all of his life relying on his sand defense that could protect him without fail almost all the time, and rarely, if even ever at all, needed to use his muscles in order to fight someone. Since fighting Rock Lee, Sasuke, and Naruto, Gaara has trained to become more effective in a one on one close quarters combat situation (in a filler arc), but we've never seen the fruits of his labors in action.


Chakra Nature

  • Earth Style:
  • Wind Style:
  • Magnet Style: The Kekkei Genkai of Gaara's bloodline.

Shukaku (Former)

Feats & Strengths

  • Sand can move faster than a well trained human eye can see.
  • Was capable of defeating Rock Lee in their youth, and would have killed him had Might Guy not stepped in.
  • Defeated Sasuke, who was using his Curse Mark's Chakra at the time, in their youth via utilizing a portion of Shukaku's Chakra.
  • Saved the Hidden Sand Village from Deidara's C3 Bomb. (One of the factors that cost him the fight)
  • Protected the Hidden Sand Village from falling Moon fragments alone with his Sand
  • Sand capable of protecting against Kimimaro's Bone Kekkai Genkai, of which his bones where stronger than Tempered Steel
  • Sand Blocked Sasuke's Amaterasu, which is a Mangekyo Sharingan jutsu that is unleashed upon anything he has eye contact with, and travels at incredibly high speeds from his eye to his target.
  • Assuming Gaara ever became a Perfect Jinchuriki, Shukaku's Chakra could grant him the ability to pull off the same feat as fellow Perfect Jinchuriki Naruto Uzumaki, and block an attack that cut the moon in half.


  • Gaara's sand defense can be worked around, and his last resort sand armor uses large amounts of his Chakra, making it inefficient for long drawnout fights.
  • Despite losing Shukaku helping him become accepted among his people, it drastically reduced his Chakra reserves, as well as stripped him of some of his strongest potential assets, such as even greater sand power, and the potential to become a Perfect Jinchuriki.
  • Despite Gaara having incredible reaction speed with his Sand, it can be manuevered around, as long as the opponent is agile enough. However, he has worked to increase the speed of his sand to minimalize this problem.
  • Can easily be beaten down if his Sand defense somehow fails because he's not very proficient with hand to hand combat.
  • Originally very cold and hate filled towards virtually everyone, including his older siblings.
  • Being the One-Tail, Shukaku, while powerful, is technically the "weakest" member of the Tailed Beasts in terms of sheer Chakra reserves despite having the greatest defense.



  • Gaara is the sixth anime/manga character to appear in Death Battle. The other five being Vegeta, Goku, Strider Hiryu, Gundam Epyon and Majin Buu and after him is Guts, Hercule Satan, Astro Boy and Agumon.
  • He is the first Naruto character to appear in Death Battle.
