Naruto dating sim shikamaru
Jiraiya's death was the first time Naruto ever felt the pain of losing a loved one.
After being moved to tears from reading "The Tale of the Utterly Gutsy Shinobi", Naruto confronts Jiraiya's killer and the true identity of Pain, his fellow pupil Nagato.
Despite learning the truth of his nature during his fight with Mizuki, it was thanks to Iruka's kindness that convinced Naruto to continue trying to gain the villagers' acknowledgement.
However, this unknowingly interfered with Hinata's attempts to give Naruto a red scarf she knitted to confess her feelings for him.
He would later stop wearing his mother's scarf in Hinata's presence after realising his own feelings for Hinata.
Naruto also made a memorial grave in honour of Jiraiya and vowed to find a path to peace for the world, telling Jiraiya to watch him from the other world.
In the Fourth Shinobi World War, when Obito and Naruto argued about dreams, Naruto answered back that he thought of Jiraiya as a hero.
