In Naruto Akkipuden, not much has changed about Naruto except he has become a jonin and now reads many of Jariya's books, which often gets dates with Sakura. As for his abilities, Naruto masters other A-Rank Wind Release Techniches, such as combining Wind Release: Rasengan and Fire Release: Rasengan to create The Ultimate Rasengan and using Shadow Clone Giant Rasengan. It is is bigger than the Hokage Mansion and can blow up an entire village. He masters Frog Kata which is as powerful as Rock Lee's taijutsu. Naruto learns Fuinjutsu from Gerotora and can seal away things just like Minato (Naruto's father), Jiraiya (Naruto's godfather), and the Third Hokage (Hiruzen Sarutobi). He's good at this because of his Uzumaki heritage. He can also trap things as powerful as a Biju with his Torri Seal. He also becomes the leader of Team 12, consisting of Konohamaru, Udon and Mogie. He helps them pass the Chuunin Exams and teaches Konohamaru the Rasengan.His appearance has not changed much, although most of the orange he wore has turned completely black. Now, he usually wears his sage cloak to look more like his father. He is also training whenever he can in order to replace Tsunade as Hokage as soon as she enters her retirement.
