During the Fourth Great Shinobi War, Jinpachi was reincarnated along with other Seven Swordsmen of the Mist to fight the opposition. Amongst them, Jinin was bombarded with a lot of techniques and retrieved Kabutowari fringe, the scroll which was under Mangetsu Hozuki's possessions, when they entered the thick Mist. This allowed Jinin and Jinpachi to begin a silent massacre which allowed them to break through their defense.
He and Kushimaru continued killing people until Kakashi showed up on the battlefield. He was upset seeing Kakashi wield the Kubikiribocho and Jinpachi decided that he himself will claim the sword back from him. He takes the advantage of his immortality to overwhelm Kakashi but the Konoha shinobi defeats him with Might Guy’s help and seals him away.
Jinpachi is seen to revel in killing like his comrades and takes pleasure in the blasting of shinobis. He has committed a lot of cruel act like killing his older brother and isn't kind to anyone outside the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist. He also tends to argue a lot with this fellow comrade and also shows no concern for his allies as he would use explosive technique even if it would injure them in the process.
Jinapchi had long brown hair and a long beard which he wore in strands with beads. He had dark lips and the top of his head was wrapped in bandages. He had an eyepatch covering his left eye and it was under his Kiri forehead protector. He also wore a loose, long- sleeve pin- stripped shirt and black pants with striped leg warmers that matched his shirt and bandages around his neck.
Jinpachi combines his expert Swordsmanship with destructive explosions. Thanks to his blastsword Shibuki, Jinpachi has explosive tags placed on the edge and once these tags detonate, an integrated scroll deposits another set along the same edge. This allows the swords to be used consecutively. However, the capabilities of this weapon don't come without a risk as the user can be caught up in the blast but Jinpachi's skill level ensues that doesn’t happen.
He is also able to perform long range explosion techniques and also states that he is able to blow up a large area around him. Not only that, he is also extremely strong which was witnessed during his multiple battles in the Fourth Shinobi World War.
