Check out this picture, why do they look so much alike? Is there some sort of relationship between them two?

It's just a coincidence that naruto looks alike to pein. And it has also been proven that naruto is the son of the fourth hokage.

naruto and pein are brothers - is naruto and pein are closely related? why do they are look alike?
naruto and pein is somewhat related to each other, remember that naruto's mom (kushina) is from the rain country? and maybe he could be someone closely related. like a brother or so. i say that because jiraiya figured out something about pein. not just because he's a pain in the*tot* but, really he might be naruto's relative.

Yeah they look alike minus the peirceings or what ever but I do not think they have any association at all whatsoever maybe Kishimoto wanted them to look alike I really don't think someone who could create the whole naruto series lacks Imagination Maybe he intened for that but then again I could be wrong but yes the do look similar not the same though

Pein (a.k.a Nagato) is using his friend Yahiko's body in that picture. Pein is originally has long and dark-hair. The similarity that they do have is they were both trained by Jiraiya and both fit the prophecy the Great toad gave Jiraiya when he was still a jounin, that one of his students will be powerful and either he's going to be a saviour or destroyer of the world. I'm reading the latest Sasuke vs. Itachi heeheehee ^_^

Because the creator as no imagination or is lazy? Though, I don't think they look that similar.
