Around friends, and even some strangers, he can be playful, teasing, and wacky, often making perverted and sarcastic jokes in order to get a good laugh. Around who he considers of higher social rank, or respectful to him, he is quite polite and respectful, expressing a calm manner while keeping a steady conversation with whoever he is interacting with. He is rarely known to get irritated towards others, only firing back a joking remark of his own whenever he is insulted. By the way he speaks, it is difficult to tell whether he is actually angered or upset by something, or if he is simply feigning it for fun.
Even in battle, his emotions can appear to be deeply conflicted. At one moment, he can appear to have an enjoyment for battle, entertained when his opponent is able to fight on even grounds with or is overwhelmed by him. At another point, he will hold an open disgust and loathing for his opponent, and will often attempt to end the fight quickly by killing them. Despite the former, he himself has stated he has a heavy dislike of fighting, preferring to use words over weapons and only fighting when necessary. Before he even engages in a battle, he will occasionally ask the other side to not attack, with the promise of not drawing a sword himself.

Fudōshin (不動心 literally: "immovable mind", "immovable heart" or "unmoving heart") is a state of equanimity or imperturbability. It is a philosophical or mental dimension to a martial art which contributes to the effectiveness of the advanced practitioner. Azusa learned this from Sigma by being constanly placed under genjutsu. Using this his mental defense has drastically increased to the point where he is virtually unable to have genjutsus casted on him. After learning this his Yin Release jutsus have grown stronger due to his unwavering mind.
