Not much is known about Hachidai’s past as he made little to no appearance in the anime. Additionally, he is only a part of the Naruto anime, making him a filler, non-canon character in the series.
Hachidai made his debut in the Kurosuki Family Removal Mission, where he was introduced as a miner from the Land of Rivers. In the arc, after Raiga Kurosuki, also known as the Thunder of the Hidden Mist, overthrows the village government, Hachidai, and his friends, namely Sangoro and Rokusuke, escape from the village.
After fleeing, they get lost in a storm and eventually find themselves in the Land of Fire, where they encounter the Number One Hyperactive, Knucklehead Ninja, Naruto Uzumaki. Once Naruto and the other Konoha ninjas (Neji Hyuga, Rock Lee, and Tenten) are assigned to look into Raiga and his plans, Hachidai goes for the Katabami Gold Mine, a mining town located in the Land of Rivers.
This is the only incident where Hachidai made an appearance, and he hasn’t reappeared since. Due to the lack of information, it is hard to determine whether he is still alive or not. For the time being, Hachidai is believed to be alive and well until any additional information comes to light suggesting otherwise.
Hachidai had a minimal role in the series, and the information concerning his personality is unavailable.
Hachidai is a balding middle-aged man with dark eyes and a black beard. He is dressed simply, with a twisted white cloth wrapped over his right side, a blue cloth tied around his shoulders, and a simple pair of sandals.
Hachidai is a miner, and his skill set is mainly related to mining. Based on the information available, it is safe to say that Hachidai never received any formal combat training and, thus, does not possess any combat skills.
Hachidai is Japanese for "great eight."
