Suicide[edit]

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=b49450J6MhY Kid becomes sand hero imitating Gaara. Worthy of inclusion? Kakama (talk) 22:05, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Editors on the main article think not. --Farix (Talk) 00:42, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
You all might want to participate in this discussion if haven't already done so. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 20:07, 14 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's kind of appropriate. I actually came to this article hoping to find the story in like a "Gaara in Popular Culture" section. Totally worthy. There's no reason NOT to include it.(Myscrnnm (talk) 20:14, 16 March 2008 (UTC))
Actually, popular culture sections tend to be discouraged. If they're relevant or significant, they'll go into the "other media" section. As for this incident, it's not notable. Per the linked discussion, unless this results in a lawsuit, mass media attention, or similar, then it shouldn't be included. Refer to WP:NOT#NEWS. Sephiroth BCR (Converse) 02:26, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
I'd put this under reception. Sand hero obviously thought Gaara was cool enough to warrant burying himself in sand in Gaara's likeness. StardustDragon 05:06, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Part I, Part II ???[edit]

I noticed that the article says that Gaara's age is 12-13 in Part 1, but it doesn't have his age in Part II. Also, it says that his ninja rank is the 5th Kazekage, but he doesn't become that until Part 2. What's up with that? I'm kinda confused. A pyrate's life for me... (talk) 17:56, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

We dont have a source for his age in Part II. That's why it isnt there. --GhostStalker(Got a present for ya! | Mission Log) 05:32, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes we do. The Hiden: Shō no Sho Official Character Databook Mini that was part of the Weekly Shōnen Jump Hero Book. It gives us the ages of Naruto, Gaara, Kankurō, Shikamaru, Kakashi, and Sakura. --JadziaLover (talk) 07:54, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Huh, I wasnt aware that a new databook came out already... Maybe you could bring that to the attention of people on Naruto's talk page, and provide a link or something, so that we can finally put Part II ages up... --GhostStalker(Got a present for ya! | Mission Log) 21:21, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
It isn't an actual databook. It came as an extra with chapter 254 (I think it was 254... at any rate, it was more then 3 years ago). It has information about a handful of characters and jutsu, some information about Akatsuki and the history of Konoha, but nothing much. You could see it as a teaser for the next databook. However, as I said, it does have the part 2 ages of a couple of characters --JadziaLover (talk) 11:51, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Does it have an ISBN or something of the like that could be put into a {{cite book}} or {{cite journal}} template? That would allow us to add it to the article. ~SnapperTo 19:03, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, it came as an extra with chapter 254, so I guess it would be considered part of that week's Weekly Shounen Jump issue. --JadziaLover (talk) 00:09, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Here I found some news about that book, maybe it helps to know the date of that shonen jump.Tintor2 (talk) 01:39, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
So I guess the ref would be {{cite journal|title=Hiden: Shō no Sho Official Character Databook Mini|journal=Weekly Shōnen Jump|issue=18|page=?|year=2004|publisher=Shueisha}}. Since that seems to be in order, what are the ages that are given? ~SnapperTo 03:45, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
The year should be 2005, I believe.
The ages given are: Naruto, Gaara, Shikamaru, Sakura 15; Kankurou 17; and Kakashi 29. --JadziaLover (talk) 12:14, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
Added.--Tintor2 (talk) 14:28, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

In the cover of chapter 411 there is a date about a new book that will be released on September 4th. Is that a new databook?--Tintor2 (talk) 20:12, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

It is. 『NARUTO-ナルト-キャラクターオフィシャルデータBOOK〔秘伝・者の書〕』, or more understandably, The "Naruto Character Official Databook [Hiden: Sha no Sho] ". --JadziaLover (talk) 10:38, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Sounds cool. Also, I added the page number to the references of the herobook but they do not appear in the ref.Tintor2 (talk) 15:04, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

I think there should be some mention of gaaras eyes rings/weariness in part II. originally gaara didnt sleep much because the shukaku would take control of him when he slept, hence his noticeable black rings around his eyes. now that he is no longer host, youd figure that his rings would dissappate but they are firmly in place. i think its atleast worth a mentioning.Diablo11d (talk) 20:52, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Symbol on forehead[edit]

I've noticed that quite a few times the focus shifts to the mark on Gaara's forehead, but I can't find anything on this page. Can we get anything on the significance of that? ~Deadly-Bagel (talk)

  • It's the kanji 愛 which reads "ai" and means "affection" or "love". I'm pretty sure it was removed as part of the pruning of overinformation on Naruto, but I think it probably should at least be mentioned as it's a prominent part of his character design. JuJube (talk) 09:38, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Bit more info on that kanji here: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MinorInjuryOverreaction (quote: he carved the kanji for "love" in his forehead, the only time his sandshaping powers had allowed him to be injured.).. no idea how accurate this is, but it's nonetheless interesting. --70.67.30.131 (talk) 20:47, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
It is Kanji for 'love' (in Chinese atleast, verified by my Chinese friend, and it is also 'love' in Japanese [according to the internet]) and it is used to symbolise that he loves only himself, and nothing else. Benfen (talk) 11:19, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Subjective Content[edit]

Gaara "is THE MOST AMAZING NINJA IN THE WORLD" is highly subjective and needs to be removed immediately. L.J. Tibbs (talk) 20:17, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

It was a vandalism (see). Thank you, L.J. Tibbs. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 20:59, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
Would you be okay if I removed it? L.J. Tibbs (talk) 15:27, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
Never mind. L.J. Tibbs (talk) 15:28, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
