Best Shikamaru Quotes

Shikamaru is from the Nara clan of the Village Hidden in the Leaves, and he along with his friends, Ino and Choji form the sixteenth generation of the legendary Ino-Shika-Cho trio of the Hidden Leaf.

He is the most intelligent shinobi in the Land of Fire, with an IQ of over 200. Combine that with his lethal ‘Shadow Possession Jutsu’ and he could have achieved any kind of open success he wanted to in his life, but he didn’t care, because “it’s a drag”.

He is among those very few people who have been there to care for Naruto since the very beginning and his contribution in the fourth great Ninja War in the world of anime is one of respect. Later on, he even becomes the sixth Hokage’s assistant to gain some experience so he can help Naruto along when he becomes the Hokage. Many intelligent women from the Leaf Village have a crush on him including Shiho from the cryptology squad and Temari from the Hidden Sand who he finally ends up marrying. This iconic character sometimes makes us hyped up just by putting his genius to work, while other times, just watching him on screen makes us yawn. Which is why, even though it’s a drag, here we have compiled some of the best Shikamaru quotes for you to enjoy. If you are looking for Shikamaru Nara quotes, Naruto quotes, Shikamaru lazy quotes or Naruto Shikamaru quotes, you will find them all here.
