Naruto Uzumaki Hokage Sage Skin

This anime fan-skin by Wigahigaful is possibly the best Naruto skin available – believe it!


The Sage Mode skin only differs from the creator’s original Hokage skin with one small difference – Naruto’s eyes, just like in the anime/manga.  His outfit is the same as the one worn by Minato Namikaze, the fourth Hokage:



Even if you are not a fan of the series, this skin still stands as a clear, well-textured addition to your library.  If you are a fan, you’re probably wondering the same thing as I am right now – is there a Shadow Clone mod somewhere?


Installing the Skin


For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one; click on the button on the right-hand side labeled “change my skin” to be taken directly to the appropriate page.


For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:


  1. Download the skin’s .png file;

  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.

  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.

  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.

  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.

  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.

  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).

  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.


Remember to keep your meta.inf and original steve texture backed up somewhere just in case.
