Reading: Gama-chan

Gama-chan ( ガマちゃん, Gama-chan, English TV: Froggy, literally meaning: Toad-chan ) is Naruto Uzumaki ‘s frog shaped wallet. Gama-chan ‘s presence and brief appearances in the series are used for comic easing. Naruto cares for “ Gama-chan “ and refers to it as if it were a pet, saying that it ‘s happy when it ‘s fat and full of money. He gets defeated and indignant whenever Jiraiya ‘s jaunts out for “ research “ would end up with Naruto broke, and Gama-chan emaciated.

When Tsunade made a bet with Naruto on whether he could master the Rasengan in a week, she took a money-filled Gama-chan as his part of the bet.

Gama-chan continued to survive the wear and bust ( and feast and famine ) of the years. As a forefather, Naruto continues to pay for out-of-pocket expenses through Gama-chan .


  • During the Three-Tails’ Appearance, when Naruto asks Konohamaru to buy snacks for Gamatatsu and Gamakichi, Gama-chan’s eyes lack the white border around them.
  • On the underside of Gama-chan, a white strip can be seen. The strip roughly says Naruto’s Wallet ( なるとさいふ, Naruto Saifu).
  • It might be based on the Chan Chu, the Lucky Money Toad, a Chinese symbol of prosperity depicted as a frog sitting on top of a pile of coins with a coin in its mouth.
  • The Japanese word for frog, “kaeru”, is a homonym that means “return / to return”. It is considered lucky in Japanese culture to keep a frog in wallets (in whatever form, whether as figurines or keychains, etc.) for money to come back when it is spent.
  • The creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto, says “One day, the following incident took place. I got stuck writing a manga just before the deadline, so I lay down behind my desk to take a short nap. When I was looking for something to use as a pillow, I found a big frog-shaped gamaguchi cushion. (This is a cushion modeled on the froggie wallet that Naruto uses in the series, it was made as a present for readers.)”[1]
  • In several Ultimate Ninja Storm series, Gama-chan appears as a custom Substitution item. In Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, it also appears as a character customisation accessory for Naruto.
