Tsunade pointed out that Kushina was a woman well-known for her beauty. Her skin was fair and
her eyes were violet (portrayed as a grey in
anime). She had a slender but highly feminine
build. As an adult she usually wore a high-
collared, sleeveless loose-fitting dress with a
green apron over it, a black band on her left wrist and standard sandals. She had long, bright-
red hair (portrayed as a red-plum colour in the
anime), a common trait amongst the members of
the Uzumaki clan, that reached down to her
calves, with strands that framed both sides of her
face, with the left one being parted by a hair clip. In her childhood, she had a round face which
with her red hair made her look like a tomato.
She also wore a short sleeve, kimono-like plain
blouse with a dark embroidered border with
loose sleeves, held closed with a dark coloured obi, a dark skirt and stockings that stopped at her thighs.

According to Jiraiya, Kushina was talkative and a
tomboyish girl. Tsunade noted that much of
Naruto's personality, as well as his style of ninjutsu, was inherited from her. Kushina also had a verbal tic: when flustered or excited, she would end her sentences with
"(da)ttebane" (「(だ)ってばね」), a trait she hoped (unsuccessfully) she wouldn't pass down to
Naruto (who ends his with "(da)ttebayo"). As an adult, Kushina was shown to be very level-
headed and cheerful. Despite her calm and kind
demeanour, she still had a slight temper and
could lash out from it. She loved her husband and
newborn son very deeply and was not afraid to
sacrifice her life to stop the Nine-Tails.

Though she stated that she was never originally
any good in using ninjutsu, Kushina apparently
became famous for her strong-willed spirit and
her unique style of ninjutsu. In her childhood, she
showed herself to be a fierce and frightening
barehanded fighter, able to pummel several kids "half to death" for teasing her. Kushina also
possessed an unusual and special form of chakra,
which made her well-suited for becoming the
Nine-Tails' jinchūriki. She was able to produce chakra chains from her body to restrain others. The chains are strong enough to hold down the Nine-Tails.

As a member of the Uzumaki clan, she was blessed with an exceptionally long potential
lifespan. Her life-force was so strong that she
survived the extraction of a tailed beast minutes
after giving birth to Naruto, though she was left
severely weakened. She also had great skill and
knowledge of advanced fūinjutsu (some of which she would share with Minato).
