Iwakyo appeared in the anime alongside his brothers Iwazo and Iwaji chasing Kosuke Maruboshi who is a Konohagakure (The Village Hidden in the Leaves) genin who stole the intel of Iwagakure's plan. The three brothers caught Kosuke and then asked him to give intel about his village, but Team Asuma came to his rescue when Iwazo trapped him in his Ground Bedrock technique (Earth Style: Earth Hold).
When Kosuke was trapped in Iwazo’s technique, the three brothers surrounded him and asked him to give back the scroll in which he gathered the intel about their village and the plans. But soon Choji Akimichi, Ino Yamanaka, and Shikamaru Nara used their Ino-Shika-Cho coordination technique to defeat the Three Brothers. Iwakyo was possessed by Ino as she used her Mind transfer technique to gain control over Iwakyo's mind and body, and he started fighting against his brothers. Soon, they captured the three brothers and rescued Kosuke.
Iwakyo is overconfident and takes all the group's decisions, and because of his overconfidence, he is caught. He seems caring towards his younger brothers.
