In the game, Tsunade states Mecha-Naruto was created by a "certain someone" as a weapon of destruction to rule the world. Mecha-Naruto eventually went berserk and killed his creator. Mecha-Naruto refers to his creator as "Professor".
In the game, Mecha-Naruto seems to be a smart and strategic fighter. He dislikes Naruto for looking like him and "stealing" his name and he mocks him. He thinks that Hinata Hyūga has a beautiful heart and listens to whatever she says. Mecha-Naruto has a crush for her, he calls her “Miss Hinata“ and it is jealous of Naruto because she prefers him instead of it. During the course of the game, Mecha-Naruto is able to exchange bodies with the real Naruto as a way to be accepted by everyone in the village, since it as a robot scared people because the way it looks. Later on after Naruto saves him, he comes to actually like Naruto but he still thinks of him as his rival.
In anime, Mecha-Naruto is shown originally to be savage, mindlessly attacking everything in its path. While initially having no loyalty, after Nagato repaired and reprogrammed it, Mecha-Naruto became committed to capturing Kurama for Akatsuki. It was relentless in its pursuit of Kurama, destroying everything that got in its way. Despite this programming, Itachi secretly installed an extra programming: if Naruto was to voice his devotion to saving Sasuke from his anger, Mecha-Naruto would side with Naruto. After this programming activated, Mecha-Naruto became driven to help Naruto in battle, willing sacrificing itself to protect Naruto's village.

Mecha-Naruto's other self, Nine-Tails Mode, is the result of Mecha-Naruto regaining his Mental Stone after the Ninja World Tournament. In contrast to his counterpart, Nine-Tails Mode is destructive and shows great hatred towards Mecha-Naruto for "sealing him away".
Overall, Mecha-Naruto looks similar to Naruto with bolts all over his body holding him together.
In mechanised variations, Mecha-Naruto possesses most of Naruto and Kurama's abilities, such as the Rocket Rasengan and a mechanical variant of the Tailed Beast Ball. Additionally, it can also shoot rays with its "eyes", after targeting the opponent. It can also merge itself with a huge mechanism to form Mecha-Kurama (メカクラマ, Meka-Kurama). He is able to switch minds with his opponents. He can make up to three clones of himself that explode when they are touched. He is also well versed in taijutsu, using jets to make his punches and kicks even more powerful. He can also run at incredible speeds; faster than the average shinobi.
