Gantetsu appeared in Naruto episode: 209, "The Enemy: Ninja Dropouts." He, alongside his former Shinobazu gang members, sneaked into Todoroki’s house and killed his parents and took his younger brother with him.
He decided to leave the group and then took care of the orphans. He also stole the money and then got himself caught by the police of the Land of Forests so that his former group would try to rescue him and get caught by the police force.
The Land of Forests authority asked Tsunade to send some shinobi to guard the ship that was taking Gantetsu to the Land of Forest for trials. Tsunade sent Rock Lee, Sakura Haruno and Naruto Uzumaki for the mission. Shinobazu members Shura, Monju and Toki attack the ship and ask Gantetsu about the place he hid the money, but he does not tell them and soon, the lower half of the ship falls into the river. Naruto, Todoroki and Gantetsu are able to get out of it.
One by one, Shinobazu members tried to fight and take Gantetsu away with the help of Todoroki and Naruto, and they defeated all the members. Later, Todoroki and Konoha nin learned the real truth about Gantetsu. He helped all the orphan children and took care of them.
