Naruto has been well-liked for a long time. Even though the main story ended a long time ago, many people still watch the sequel Boruto and play every new fighting game based on the series.
Modding other games is another fun way to stay in touch with the best Ninja anime ever made. When I hear “modding,” I think of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
It’s also very fitting, since Skyrim is still popular even though it came out more than a decade ago.
And part of that is because modders keep making the game better and adding new things for us to do.
In this list, we’ll look at the best Naruto mods for this popular open-world RPG.

- 2. Naruto Ultimate Overhaul
- 1. The Uchiha Clan
12. Naruto headband
The mod contains two different ninja headbands, one for the character Naruto and one for the character Kakashi.
The Naruto headband can be found in the game at a location called Sleeping Giant, but the player must use their ninja or thief skills to steal it from a barrel near the bar.
11. Naruto Load SWF files
The mod contains loading screens for a computer or game that are themed after the popular anime Naruto, specifically focusing on the Sharingan ability.
These loading screens are animated and display various visuals related to the Sharingan.
10. Naruto Kekkei Genkai Eyes
The mod adds three types of eyes from the Naruto anime: Itachi’s Sharingan, Rinnegan, and Sharingan.
The creator of the mod aimed to make the eyes look as close to the ones in the anime as possible.
The mod allows players to have these eyes for their character in the game.
9. Ocular Jutsu Eyes Pack
Along with the Sharingan, there are plenty of alternative special eyes in the Naruto universe.
This mod by AntiiMatter makes it easy to bring some of these chakra-infused eyes to Tamriel.
The set features 13 total eyes, which work with all races.
These include the Byakugan, the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, the Nine-Tails Sage Mode, and the Rinnegan.
Your enemies won’t know what hit ’em when you start copying their abilities, blocking their mana flow, and trapping them in inescapable torture dimensions.
8. Akatsuki & Naruto Clothing Pack
One of the most famous symbols in Naruto merch is the Akatsuki’s red clouds on a black background.
Every weeb I know seems to own at least one item of clothing bearing the iconic red clouds.
Now your Skyrim characters can also don the Akatsuki robes thanks to this apparel compilation by 1a1a.
And that’s not all!
This also includes plenty more items other than the Akatsuki robe, such as Itachi’s ring, Kakashi’s mask and headband, Gaara’s gourd, and many more iconic items from the show.
7. Samehada & Other Naruto Blades
If you’ve ever wanted to feel like Madara bringing down an entire army of ninja by yourself, I’ve got a mod that’ll put you on the right track.
This pack of Naruto blades by 1a1a includes many powerful (and often gigantic) weapons taken straight from the show, such as Kisame’s Samehada, and the legendary Seven Star Sword wielded in antiquity by the Sage of Six Paths.
And these are not just aesthetic additions, mind you.
These swords have real enchantments inspired by their effects on the show.
For example, Samehada’s bandaged-up version absorbs Magicka, while the “unleashed” version absorbs health.
Now you’ll feel like a true ninja warrior while mowing down hordes of Imperials, Stormcloaks, bandits, and whoever dares take up arms against you.
6. Susanoo Ribcage Protection
Those who have awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan in both their eyes gain access to a whole other level of power – and with it comes the protection of Susanoo.
This colossal warrior spirit surrounds and protects the wielder with its ribcage, while taking the fight to their foes with various weapons.
This mod by Kurasa25 won’t give you access to Susanoo’s complete form. But it will let your character manifest blue or purple ribcages to protect themselves – much like Itachi and Sasuke did at several points throughout the show.
Unfortunately, the effect is only aesthetic, but I’d say it’s worth getting anyways.
5. Naruto (& Dragon Ball) Spell Pack
Check out Luheu1’s Naruto and Dragon Ball spell pack for Skyrim if you want to use jutsu that really make a difference.
This add-on gives you over 40 new spells and skills based on Dragon Ball’s Ki and Naruto’s Chakra.
These include things like beams, projectiles, and transformations.
The Rasenshuriken, the High Compression Rasengan, the Kyubi Rasengan, and the Sand Coffin are my favorite weapons.
The changes that happen here are also a big deal. Depending on what you need at the time, you can go into Sage Mode, wake up the Rinnegan, or just become a Super Saiyan.
4. Naruto Hair Pack (HDT)
Most of the characters in shounen anime have crazy hair, like Goku’s hair with a lot of spikes or Sasuke’s hair that looks like a chicken’s butt.
And this Naruto Hair Pack will help you reach your goal of making Skyrim look like an anime from the early 2000s by adding some well-known hairstyles from Hidden Leaf Village.
In particular, Minato, Madara, Itachi, Sasuke, and Ino are the people who have influenced them.
This hairstyle collection stands out from the rest because it works with the HDT Physics Extension plug-in for Skyrim Script Extender. This makes the hair move much more smoothly and realistically.
3. Naruto Wardrobe (HDT)
If your hair flows like the wind thanks to HDT physics, your wardrobe better move naturally too.
Luckily, creator Gameothic – who’s also behind our previous entry – released this nifty pack of HDT Naruto clothing.
While more is planned for the future, this mod currently includes an Akatsuki outfit, three kinds of Uchiha robe, Anbu armor (as worn by Itachi), a standard Leaf Shinobi outfit, and Sasuke’s Taka outfit.
In addition, you’ll also find almost every possible village headband – even rogue variants with the village’s symbol crossed out.
2. Naruto Ultimate Overhaul
If you’re looking for a single mod to quickly and easily transform Tamriel into the world of Ninja, the Naruto Ultimate Overhaul is the way to go.
The mod by Omega1084 adds several things, including over 100 new eyes for every race, a ton of Ninjutsu in the form of spells, and a wide array of weapons and armor based on the Naruto anime.
There’s the Sharingan, the Byakugan, Sage Mode, and Kyuubi Mode, along with items like Sasuke’s Kusanagi blade and even Tobi’s mask.
Honestly there are too many things to list them all (check the mod description for more).
But it’s fair to say this should be everyone’s first step in their road to ninja mastery in Skyrim.
You’ll find a link to download the mod on the Off-Site Requirements tab of this add-on for Sykrim SE.
1. The Uchiha Clan
Along with the Naruto Ultimate Overhaul, modded Omega1084 and his companions created The Uchiha Clan to be a playable race in Skyrim.
This unique race favors Illusion, Destruction, and Light Armour along with One-Handed and Two-Handed weapons of any kind.
Their talents make them resistant to fire, and most importantly, they get a powerful Sharingan.
What’s so special about this is how the Sharingan evolves with your character.
The more enemies you kill, the more it grows, granting you new abilities.
Eventually you’ll go on a quest to acquire the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan – and maybe even something more.
This mod is a blast to play, and a must-have for any Naruto enthusiast.
