15 Zabuza Quotes (the best Zabuza Momochi quotes from Naruto)
Zabuza Momochi is probably one of the most loved villains in Naruto.

The Best Zabuza Momochi Quotes
Zabuza Momochi, Demon of the Hidden Mist, is a ninja from Kirigakure.
He’s one of the legendary Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, but deserted his village after a failed coup against the Mizukage.
His first -and most important- appearance in the series is when he tries to murder Tazuna, a bridge builder. However Tazuna was protected by Konoha’s team Kakashi (Kakashi, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura).
The fight of team Kakashi vs Zabuza & Haku is an absolutely epic fight, yet very emotional. I’m not ashamed to say I’ve shed a tear at the end of the fight, overwhelmed by emotions.
Let’s relive the episode together through some of the best Zabuza Momochi quotes.
Here are the best quotes from Zabuza:
- “It’s true... Haku was always too soft.” Even from the start, he never intended to hurt any of you.” Zabuza Momochi
- “...You don’t need to say any more... It pained him to have to fight you... Haku fought not only for me... he fought for you guys too. He was too kind. I’m glad I got to face you guys in the end. You may be right... a shinobi is still a human... we may not be able to become emotionless tools...” Zabuza Momochi
Your words cut deep, deeper than any blade.
- “I died as a human!” Zabuza Momochi
- “Did you say my future was death? You’re off the mark again, Kakashi.” Zabuza Momochi
- ” Shut up kid, Haku’s already dead... As I was used by Gatō, I used Haku. That was all. I’ve said it already... in the world of shinobi, there are only those who use and those whom are used. We shinobi are simply tools... what I wanted was his blood, not him... I have no regrets.” Zabuza Momochi
You were always at my side, the least I can do is to be beside you at the end. I know it cannot be, but I wish I could go to where you have gone. How I wish I could join you there, Haku.
- “I can’t think of a more fitting destination for a demon ninja, can you?! I’m told there are many demons down there of all shapes and sizes! Oh yes, I should fit right in! You, on the other hand, Gatō... Well,I fear you’re in for a long and very painful eternity!” Zabuza Momochi
- “His soul was as pure as snow.” Zabuza Momochi
- “Even the unremarkable Demon of the Hidden Mist can die and become a real Demon in hell!” Zabuza Momochi
- “You’re right. Those little people and their little dreams, why should I care about them?! I have my own dream!” Zabuza Momochi
- “Well? Cat got your tongue? Are you so surprised to discover that I’m human? Even shinobi are human. No matter how hard we try, we always fail to escape that simple fact. Well at least, I have failed.” Zabuza Momochi
When I was your age, my hands were already soaked in blood...
- “Uh uh... I won’t be joining Haku. Where he’s gone I cannot follow. We wouldn’t be welcome where Haku’s gone to. Hell’s where WE’RE going, Gatō!” Zabuza Momochi
- “When you’ve hovered between life and death so many times that it doesn’t faze you, you may be called a ninja. When you’ve become so deadly that your profile has been entered into my bingo book, then you may have earned the title ninja.” Zabuza Momochi
