Akane (アカネ, Akane) is a kunoichi of Konohagakure.
Akane is deeply infatuated with Naruto to the point she and her friends would chase after him repeatedly for his affections. However, it appears her affections for him are rather vain and solely because he is the hero of the village. In fact, she would rather flirt with Naruto than focusing on her training or missions as a shinobi.
- "Akane" (茜) can refer to both the colour "madder" and the plant the colour derives from, the "rubia tinctorum", more precisely, the Japanese species of said plant, the "Rubia argyi".
