If you’re a fan of Naruto, a hat can be a fun way to show it. Finding a Naruto hat or baseball cap isn’t hard.
But with a lot of different styles and designs to choose from, you may have a hard time deciding which one is the right one for you. We can help you pick the best hat for your head.
The shonen series Naruto has entertained fans for more than 20 years. Naruto Uzumaki is an easy hero to like, with his unorthodox ninja style, comical antics, and “never give up” attitude.
Manga artist Masashi Kishimoto created the Naruto manga. The series ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1999 to 2014.
Like a lot of shonen series, the anime was divided into two parts — Naruto ran from 2002 to 2007; while an older and wiser Naruto fought epic villains in Naruto: Shippuden from 2007 to 2017.
The series spawned a sequel series, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. The story of Naruto’s son started in 2017, and is still continuing. You can find it at Crunchyroll, among other places.

When it comes to shonen rivalries, Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha are top tier, s-ranked rivals.
This cap features the two ninjas side-by-side, ready to go into battle. The Naruto Shippuden logo is on the side.
If you don’t care for this design, this is actually one of three available at the same webpage. The second one features Sasuke, and the third has Sasuke’s older brother Itachi.
This blue bucket hat features the Shonen Jump Naruto Shippuden logo against a background of clouds.
Noticeably, it’s the English language logo, rather than the Japanese version, which has Shippuden in kanji. Still, it’s a fun and colorful design.
If If you’re a fan of “the Copy Ninja” Kakashi, you might want this cap. Kakashi lifts his headband to reveal his sharingan eye on this unique cap.
Behind him, Kakashi’s name is written out in a big sports-style block font. If you turn up the bill, Kakashi is there as well, about to use what looks like the Chidori jutsu.
This is sort of a busy baseball cap, but it looks good. On the front, Naruto is giving the hand sign for some jutsu. (Honestly, even after Googling it, I’m not sure which sign it is.) The Uzumaki clan’s swirl logo is behind him.
Below Naruto are some crossed kunai knives. The front of the hat is black, but the back is red.
Show your allegiance to Konohagakure (a.k.a. Konoha, the Village Hidden in the Leaves, or the Hidden Leaf Village) with this beanie.
The beanie resembles the forehead protector headband worn by ninjas from Konoha. It features a metallic Konoha “leaf” symbol, while the top of the beanie is the same color as a typical Naruto ninja uniform.
If Ichiraku Ramen sold a souvenir baseball cap, it would probably look something like this one.
The cap gives an “Est. 1999” grand opening date for the ramen shop. That corresponds with the publication of the first Naruto manga in Weekly Shonen Jump. Pretty clever, you guys.
Of course, Ichiraku is the best ramen shop in Konoha village. At least, that’s what Naruto says, and as a ramen lover, he should know.
If you’re suddenly hungry for ramen, check out our Japanese noodle article.
Here’s where Naruto’s ninja journey began. The “Number One Hyperactive, Knucklehead Ninja” failed the graduation exam several times before finally earning his headband. Of course, that was just the beginning of the series, but it demonstrated how tough things were going to be for him in the future.
You don’t have to be an academy graduate to wear this hat. But it shows that you’re a fan.
This bucket hat features a round fan, the symbol for the Uchiha clan. Of course, the family’s name comes from uchiwa, a type of round fan. One of the uses of an uchiwa is to fan the flames of a fire, which is appropriate for a clan with fire-style abilities.
This is one of several Naruto-related designs available in this style of bucket hat.
The Akatsuki organization was probably the best antagonist group in Naruto. Divided up into small groups of charismatic rogue ninja, and led by mysterious leaders with big plans, it was certainly memorable. How could you not like the explosive artist Deidara, or the goofy Tobi?
This acid-washed beanie features the red cloud logo of the Akatsuki. It’s a BoxLunch exclusive item.
Retailer BoxLunch partners with the charitable organization Feeding America to donate meals to food banks. So when you buy from them, you’re not only getting some cool stuff, you’re helping people.
Sanrio has done a lot of anime collaborations. (You can find a good example of this in our My Hero Academia shirt list.)
And so naturally, the people behind Hello Kitty and Friends did a collaboration with Naruto. This particular item features Hello Kitty cosplaying as Naruto. Underneath her, it says “Hello Kitty – Uzumaki Naruto” in Japanese.
Of course, there’s more to Naruto merch than just hats. If you’d rather have a Naruto T-shirt, you should look at our guide to the best Naruto shirts.
ZenPlus has a wide range of Naruto stuff, from figurines to cosplay outfits to playing cards to plushies. (At the moment, this surprisingly does not include hats, but that may change in the future.)
Here are some interesting examples of what you may find at ZenPlus:
- Several varieties of high-quality wristwatches: If you want a good watch, you can’t go wrong with Seiko, which is often compared with Rolex. The art is tastefully subtle, but the Naruto connection is there.
- Nyaruto figurines: If you’re a fan of both Naruto and cats, you might like these. MegaHouse, a division of Bandai, makes these Naruto-themed cat figurines. You can get various different Nyaruto characters. (“Nya” is “meow” in Japanese.) Of course, you can also get more traditional figurines as well.
- Naruto video games: The anime series inspired games for lots of different video game consoles. These include Nintendo Famicom, Sony PlayStation 2, PSP, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, GameBoy Advance, Nintendo DS and 3DS, GameCube, Switch, Wii, WiiU, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A lot of these are fighting games, including some where Naruto fights against other Shonen Jump characters.
