Naruto's style is '(verb stem)tte bayo!' For instance, wakattebayo is "I get it already" or nan dattebayo is "What (the heck) is that?"
- Is Naruto's favorite phrase, "dattebayo" modeled on anything?
K: That isn't really modeled on anything either. When I thought of childlike
speech, "dattebayo" instantly came to mind. It's like it's become a part of
Naruto, and even now it brings out his "mischievousness".
I guess it's just up to fans to determine for themselves what it truly means...
2. A phrase said by uzumaki naruto in the Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden series. Has no meaning in any way and is also clarified by dattebayo that the phrase means nothing at all
dattebayo has no real meaning, and the closest english equivelent is a pirates "arrgh!"
in the english dub (which is constantly plauged by crazed otaku, despite it being an excelent dub and true to the original)it is translated as "belive it!" in order for the mouth flaps to fit.
The specific "dattebayo" is not well known to even much of the Japanese native population.
The "dattebayo" specific ending can be considered a colloquial verb ending that makes the speaker sound uncultured, brusque, and trying to seem tougher than they really are.
2. A word Uzumaki Naruto from the anime series, "Naruto", has a habit of adding into his sentence. It has no meaning whatsoever. The mangaka, Masashi Kishimoto, states that he carved it into Naruto's personality in hopes of making him seem more childish and playful. Naruto gradually reduces the frequency of using this word after the timeskip.
2. "Sasuke-teme, 'ttebayo!"
