Life of Kabuto Yakushi

Kabuto by found by Nono Yakushi on the outskirts of a city and was taken to the Konoha Orphanage. She then treated him there and asked him his name but the young Kabuto had injured his head and thus couldn’t remember his name or his past.

Kabuto in Konoha Orphanage

After another orphan named Urushi put a helmet on his head to prevent further harm, and Nono gave him the name "Kabuto." Unaware of the orphanage's tight schedule and because he loved the name, Kabuto got out of bed that night to say thank you to her.

When Nono found him, she learned that this was in part because of his bad eyesight, which prevented him from reading a clock. She handed him her spectacles so he could see, which made Kabuto feel indescribably grateful.

Non utilized her medical ninjutsu to heal injured Konohagakure shinobi in order to raise money for the orphanage's operations; Kabuto, who had learned medical ninjutsu from Non, would also help. Even though the money was helpful, they still needed financial support from Konoha directly to survive.

That allowed Root inroads into the orphanage and Kabuto gave himself up so that the orphanage would be funded by his organisation. They gave Kabuto espionage training and, over the years, dispatched him to gather intelligence by at various times disguising himself as a ninja from Kumo, Kiri, Suna, or Iwa.

Kabuto was caught spying while in Iwa, and an Iwa-nin cornered him. He was able to kill his pursuer, but it wasn't until later that he realized it was Non, another Root employee.

Even after he revealed Nono his identity, Kabuto apologized sincerely and attempted to cure her, but she failed to recognize his face. She passed away from her wounds which forced him to run before Nono's backup discovered him.

Upon reaching safety, Kabuto was disheartened by what had occurred and questioned who he was if even Nono didn't know him. Orochimaru, a subordinate of Danzo, had developed a fascination with Kabuto over time, soon confronted him. In addition to inviting him to help create a new hamlet called Otogakure where uniqueness may flourish, Orochimaru pledged to assist him in this endeavor.

Kabuto concurred, and Orochimaru gave him a new narrative, claiming that he was adopted as Nono's son during the Battle of Kikyo Pass by the captain of Konoha's Medic Corps Nono. With this narrative, Kabuto was allowed to join Konoha as a genin, which he then used to register for the twice-yearly Chunin Exams to learn more about the other candidates for Orochimaru's benefit.

He was later discovered by Akatsuki, who transformed him into one of Sasori's sleeper spies so he could spy on Orochimaru. Soon later, Orochimaru realized the truth and released Kabuto from this influence, which enabled Orochimaru to use him to infiltrate the organization successfully.

Kabuto assisted Orochimaru with his experiments and research on various Oto-nin when he wasn't espionage. In the anime, Kabuto further assisted Orochimaru in locating genetic materials for the Impure World Reincarnation and in escaping from Itachi Uchiha following the latter's aborted attempt to seize Itachi.

Kabuto in Chunin Exams

Yoroi Akad, Misumi Tsurugi, and Kabuto are paired up so they can compete in the Konoha Chunin Exams. Kabuto becomes friends with the Rookie Nine before the first part of the exam starts. He cautions them about the exam's inherent difficulty as well as the intense competitiveness that some of the other candidates face since they are all fairly confident in their chances.

He admits that he knows nothing about the ninja of Oto, but he doesn't think this is a problem. Dosu Kinuta, an Oto-genin who was listening in, becomes enraged and attacks Kabuto. Although Kabuto dodges, Dosu's Resonating Echo Speaker breaks his spectacles and makes him queasy. The test overseers break up the altercation.

Kabuto locates Team 7 in the Forest of Death as the second round of examinations is about to end. He arrives in time to stop Naruto Uzumaki from reading one of the scrolls.

Kabuto advises that they try stealing a scroll from one of the groups of teams gathered in the forest's center instead. He offers to assist them in return for their companionship, offering safety in numbers.

Team Oboro, who has identical goals to steal scrolls as they do, surprises Kabuto and Team 7 in a genjutsu as they approach the center and the completion time draws closer.

Team Oboro tries to sneak up on Naruto and attack him, but Kabuto prevents them and is hurt instead; as a result, he emits killing intent, which allows Naruto to knock them unconscious.

Team 7 transports Team Oboro's scroll to the forest's center, where Kabuto meets up with his group. He expresses gratitude to Team 7 for their assistance. Before the next exam phase begins, Kabuto and his squad meet with Orochimaru, and Kabuto provides him with the information they have on Sasuke.

He responds to Yoroi's question by saying that Yoroi and Misumi will have an opportunity to win Orochimaru's favor through this. Kabuto is worried that he won't be able to control himself during the fight and that he'll reveal his cover.

With Orochimaru in the audience, Kabuto no longer needs to gather information for him and with the Third Hokage's approval, Kabuto departs, looking forward to his subsequent meeting with Naruto and Sasuke.

After the preliminary rounds, Kabuto encounters Orochimaru and he worries about Sasuke's progress even if he doesn't want to start his long-term plans just yet since he thinks Naruto is having an excessively favorable impact on him.

While Orochimaru can still corrupt Sasuke, he dispatches Kabuto to seize him. Sasuke's eight Anbu guards are killed by Kabuto after he finds him at the Konoha Hospital.

Kabuto offers to kill Hayate Gekko when they realize he is listening in on their talk, but Baki takes action in his place. One of the Anbu manning the stadium's security during the Chunin Exams final bouts is killed by Kabuto a month later.

He dons Anbu garb and a mask to pass as one of them to sneak inside the stadium and see Naruto play. Hinata Hyuga begins hacking up a lung during the struggle.

She hasn't fully recovered from the preliminary match she lost to Neji Hyuga a month ago. When Kabuto offers to help, she is cured but loses consciousness; Kabuto also renders Kiba Inuzuka and Akamaru comatose.

Kabuto During Konoha Crush,

Suna's Gaara is intended to be the one to start the invasion of Konoha. Kabuto starts the invasion instead by using the Temple of Nirvana Technique to put the majority of the spectators in the stadium to sleep when Gaara sustains an injury during his battle with Sasuke and is thus rendered unable to carry out his intended role.

While engaging other Oto-nin who had infiltrated the stadium, some of Konoha's soldiers can repel his genjutsu. On the other hand, Kabuto chooses not to engage in combat, and Kakashi and Might Guy finally corner both him and Baki.

Kabuto also chooses to run and counsels Baki to do the same when he sees Orochimaru escaping his battle with the Third Hokage.

Kabuto, in Pursuit of Tsunade,

The Dead Demon Consuming Seal, restrains Orochimaru's arms during the unsuccessful invasion. Kabuto tries to heal them, and when that doesn't work, he gives Orochimaru painkillers, but those don't work either. With few alternatives left, Orochimaru orders Kabuto to find Tsunade, another Sannin.

They travel to see her when Kabuto follows her to Tanzaku Quarters. Orochimaru seeks her out and offers to repair his arms in exchange for his reincarnation as her lover and brother. This suggestion causes Shizune, Tsunade's attendant, to strike Orochimaru with a Prepared Needle Shot, which Kabuto successfully stops.

As Tsunade shows signs of wanting to fight them on her own, Orochimaru spills some of his blood, paralyzing her because of her hatred of blood. Giving Tsunade a week to make a decision, he and Kabuto depart.

A week later, when they return to Tanzaku Quarters, Orochimaru is sure that Tsunade will cure his arms. He nonetheless sends Kabuto to assassinate Shizune because he thinks she could be a problem.

Due to Tsunade's powerful assaults, Kabuto avoids contact with her as much as possible, only attacking when he can deliver a crippling blow. All the harm Tsunade inflicts on her is healed, and Kabuto also fully recovers from her counterattacks.

When Shizune, Jiraiya, and Naruto discover them, Kabuto cuts his wrists to render Tsunade helpless due to terror. Kabuto tells Naruto that his lack of knowledge keeps him from matching Sasuke. Naruto is perplexed by Kabuto's appearance and hesitant to realize that he works for Orochimaru.

Finally, Kabuto effortlessly repels an onslaught by Naruto's shadow clones. He then engages in combat with Shizune, soon knocking her unconscious while he tries to hold Tsunade back. Naruto stops him and attempts to use the Rasengan to strike, but he is not fully proficient with it and misses. Kabuto tries to persuade Naruto to quit because if he doesn't, he'll be murdered and unable to fulfill his goal of becoming Hokage. Kabuto wields a kunai to hit Naruto after he rejects him.

As Naruto executes another Rasengan attack, he catches the kunai and grabs Kabuto's hand to keep him from fleeing. Kabuto is thrown backward and attempts to use his Yin Healing Wound Destruction to repair the damage, but the damage is too great, and he collapses.

Kabuto claims that nothing can be done to save Naruto, but Tsunade can cure him effectively. Naruto also passes out since Kabuto cut his heart muscles when the Rasengan hit him.

Orochimaru is the last one left to battle, and Kabuto aids him in calling on Manda.

Tsunade overcame her fear of blood and took down Manda and Orochimaru, forcing them to flee and Kabuto.

Kabuto Mets Naruto and Sasori

Orochimaru, and Kabuto joined the Akatsuki group. Kabuto was sent to have a talk with Sasori about plan. Naruto, Sakura, Sai, and Yamato went to rescue Kazekage, which the Akatuski group captured for his One-Tailed beast.

In response to Sasori's inquiries regarding Sasuke, Kabuto, posing as his devoted agent, informs him that Sasuke is at Orochimaru's close-by stronghold. When they meet, Orochimaru challenges them, and Kabuto retreats toward Sasori. Sasori talks to Orochimaru and gets ready to confront the man alongside Kabuto, but Kabuto slashes through Hiruko, Sasori's puppet.

Kabuto first thinks the guy within Hiruko is Sasori because he has never seen the actual Sasori before. Still, when Naruto and the rest of Team 7 join Yamato, he realizes his error. When Orochimaru makes fun of Naruto's desire to meet Sasuke one more, he causes him to summon the chakra of the Nine-Tails. When Kabuto tries to attack him, Naruto repels him with a simple roar.

Sai grabbed him, and Kabuto thought that he was here to kill Orochimaru, but when Orochimaru approached, he said Sai was an ally, and they returned to their base.

Kabuto’s Jealousy

As his body begins to reject him, Orochimaru orders Kabuto to summon Guren. As he approaches her location, Guren challenges Kabuto to a duel to see whether he is fit to serve Orochimaru. She approves of him, and she goes to Orochimaru with him.

Kabuto is assigned to give Guren a new duty to assist him in capturing the Three-Tails after Guren fails her mission. Guren's crystal release doesn't work to restrain the Three-Tails, and Konoha-nin captures Yakimaru as he is trying to use his skills to catch the Three-Tails.

As Guren started to be more useful to Orochimaru, Kabuto felt jealous. He wanted him to be the only important person to Orochimaru, and because of that, he tricked Guren into activating the Cursed Seal. Kabuto uses Rinji's reanimated body to assault Guren while fighting Naruto, neutralizing her crystal discharge with Rinji's bats.

Guren appears to sacrifice her life to defeat Rinji, and Yakimaru, distraught, finally releases the Three-Tails. Kabuto departs, happy with what has transpired.

Kabuto Turned Himself Into Orochimaru

Sasuke and Itachi fought, and Itachi was able to kill a part of Orochimaru that Sasuke absorded. Kabuto finds out about this and then uses Orochimaru's remains to graft them onto himself. Later, Kabuto locates Naruto and sends him the book containing all the information he and Orochimaru have acquired on Akatsuki over the years after confirming the rumors that Sasuke murdered Orochimaru.

He explains that it is a gift for Naruto to support him in his encounters with Akatsuki and out of appreciation. But Naruto and the others find it difficult to comprehend why he would do such a thing. Hinata observes with her Byakugan as Kabuto demonstrates to them how he has grafted Orochimaru's remnants into his body. According to Kabuto, both the remains themselves and the ongoing effort to keep them at bay make him stronger.

He flees as Naruto and the others attempt to capture him, promising to confront Naruto after he has mastered Orochimaru's abilities and dealt with Sasuke. Kabuto continues to make himself improves his physique using the information he learned from studying various human test subjects; he discovers Rychi Cave, and he picks up senjutsu from the White Snake Sage.

He collects DNA samples from the various deceased ninjas, some of which he or Orochimaru already had in the anime. At some time, Black Zetsu runs into him and Kabuto reveals Madara Uchiha's dead body.

Improving Reanimation Jutsu

In the anime, Disonasu hires Kabuto to assist him in gaining access to the Ama no Hoko. To awaken the Ama no Hoko, he attacks Tonika Village with reborn pawns and massacres the majority of the residents, which quickly attracts Team 7's notice.

He may make a copy of Hidan to battle them but the troops he summons with the Impure World Reincarnation are unresponsive to his orders. He decides to go, leaving a reborn Deidara behind as a diversion as he seeks to better his grip over the Impure World Reincarnation.

Kabuto's role in Fourth Shinobi World War

Kabuto visits the Mountains' Graveyard to face Tobi of Akatsuki, who has been using Madara Uchiha to launch the Fourth Shinobi World War once he is sure that he has mastered Orochimaru's abilities.

Tobi attempts to assassinate Kabuto for betraying Akatsuki after realizing he was formerly a Sasori agent. In response, Kabuto revives five slain Akatsuki members using the Impure World Reincarnation and promises to use them to aid Tobi in the impending fight.

Tobi inquires what Kabuto would like in return for this partnership, and Kabuto replies that he desires Sasuke. When Tobi considers declining, Kabuto calls up the genuine Madara Uchiha, compelling Tobi to accept. But he insists that Kabuto can't have Sasuke until the battle ends, and Kabuto agrees.

Tobi includes Kabuto and his army of reborn warriors in his war preparations. If Tobi would show him the White Zetsu Army, Kabuto will promise to catch Naruto and Killer B personally when they are eventually located.

Killer B's capture is what prompted Tobi to launch the war. Tobi agrees and demonstrates to him the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path and the Hashirama Senju biomass used to grow Zetsus. Kabuto reincarnates Deidara once he is satisfied, and the two of them take off towards the Island Turtle.

They capture the Third Tsuchikage's attention as they get closer, opening the door for Kabuto's Manda II and Deidara's Explosive Clay to strike the island simultaneously. Kabuto is dropped off at the Island Turtle by Deidara, who then keeps the Tsuchikage occupied so Kabuto can locate Naruto and B. The Naruto’s guards immediately locate him, and Kurotsuchi binds his body

Aoba Yamashiro approaches Kabuto intending to read his thoughts to learn more about Akatsuki because he thinks Kabuto has been captured. Soon after, Manda II escapes, and Kabuto withdraws Deidara after shedding his skin to become free, capturing Yamato and taking sanctuary within Manda II's nose.

When Kabuto returns, Tobi is upset with him since he wants Naruto and B instead of Yamato. Kabuto adds that by learning about Yamato's wood discharge, he would be able to fortify the White Zetsu Army. He goes on to convince Tobi by saying that Yamato has information they may utilize.

The Allied Shinobi Force sent his spy agents to know about Kabuto, and Anko Mitarashi led the team, but then Tobi and Kabuto were able to catch them. Then Kabuto used her cursed seal mark, which Orochimaru gave, to make his Reanimation Justu stable and stronger.

The Fourth Shinobi World War started, and Kabuto time to time, reincarnated many great Shinobies like-

  1. Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist
  2. Second Mizukage
  3. Third Raikage
  4. Fourth Kazekage
  5. Gold and Silver Brothers
  6. Hanzo
  7. Nagato
  8. Itachi Uchiha
  9. Hayate Gekko
  10. Madara Uchiha
  11. Asuma Sarutobi

Itachi Defeated Kabuto

Itachi found the Kabuto’s base with the help of Nagato’s intel, but Sasuke tracked Itachi down and went with him to Kabuto hideout. In response to Itachi's declaration that he intends to murder Kabuto to end the Impure World Reincarnation, Kabuto warns him that his passing won't stop the method. Sasuke swiftly joins Itachi and, at first, thinks Kabuto is Orochimaru.

Sasuke attempts to assassinate Kabuto while Itachi is busy with other matters but is stopped by Itachi. Sasuke refuses to work with Kabuto even though he is aware of his desire to battle Itachi over the Uchiha Clan Downfall.

Kabuto covers Itachi's eyes with his hood and orders his snakes to attack them since the only way to stop him is with genjutsu. They use their Susanoo to kill the snakes before attacking Kabuto directly.

Itachi uses Izanami to put Kabuto under his Genjutsu and keep repeating the events of exchanging blows with Itachi and Sasuke. While Kabuto is confined to his thoughts, Itachi unlocks his brill and employs a genjutsu to compel him to release the Impure World Reincarnation, bringing everyone and himself back to the Pure Land.

Kabuto in Boruto: The Next Generation

Despite his misdeeds, Kabuto was not put in jail after the war; instead, he was given some liberty and eventually rose to the position of director of the Konoha Orphanage.

The three of them were not completely free, Orochimaru pointed out to Sasuke, and was likely only kept alive because the village saw them as priceless resources that might be used if the shinobi world faced another danger.

Kabuto’s Personality

Kabuto's personality has been mixed, and many phases which made him change the way he was before the incident happened. Kabuto is hardworking and confident, he can appear fairly approachable, is more than happy to talk to strangers, and always self-assured at times. By admission, he is an introvert who prefers to blend into the background and dislikes attention.

He may be quite judgmental of others, disregarding their personal goals and pointing out all the mistakes he thinks they are making. He is only nice to people and treats them with respect, using the proper honorifics, and reprimanding those who don't. Kabuto deludes himself into believing he has attained "perfect" being status to overtake Orochimaru.

He utilizes this alleged distinction to team up with Tobi during the Fourth Shinobi World War, putting Tobi against the Allied Shinobi Forces to cause their destruction and open the door for Kabuto to profit from the fallout. Itachi helped Kabuto understand who he is and where in the world he most belongs.

Later, Kabuto repays Itachi's kindness by saving Sasuke's life. After the war, Kabuto returns to his actual home, the orphanage where he was raised, and resumes the life he had there. He thinks the orphans must develop their identities and resist letting their previous relationships dictate who they are.

Kabuto’s Appearance

Kabuto, at an early age, used to wear the orphanage staff dress when he learned the Medical Ninjutsu and was treating Konoha Shinobi during the Third Shinobi War.

However, Kabuto, in part one, has ash-grey hair that he often wears in a ponytail, black eyes. His most enduring characteristic is a pair of black-rimmed, round spectacles that Nono gave him. Kabuto is dressed in a white undershirt, dark purple slacks, and a dark purple shirt with a high collar.

Later in Naruto Shippuden, half the flesh around the application site on his left arm turns white and scaly as he fills himself with Orochimaru's remains. This progressively affects the rest of his body. When his body has fully transformed, Kabuto's look resembles Orochimaru's in such a way that even Sasuke initially thinks Kabuto is Orochimaru. Kabuto also develops yellow eyes with slit pupils and has Orochimaru's distinctive purple marks all around them.

Additionally, a long, white snake that he wraps around his waist occasionally slithers under or behind him like a tail fused with his abdomen. Kabuto is seen in the Fourth Shinobi World War with a maroon cloak with a hood shaped like a serpent's head and patterns that mimic eyes in white, red, and yellow. Years later, when he returns to the orphanage, he dons the staff's uniform and ties his hair back up.

Kabuto’s Abilities

When Kabuto was still a little kid, Orochimaru saw his innate potential for the shinobi arts. After learning about Kabuto's service record with Root and meeting him for the first time, Orochimaru chose him to be his right-hand man.

Kabuto's abilities are compared to those of Kakashi Hatake in Part I and are sufficient to beat members of Konoha's Anbu easily. However, it is emphasized that they should have prepared at least ten guards for him. Tsunade even remarks that his mastery of ninjutsu and mental acuity are superior to that of her in her prime.

Kabuto sets out to develop the skills that, in his opinion, were never fully realized. Later, he brags that he has outperformed Orochimaru, is the only surviving individual who can rival the might of the Sage of Six Paths, and is the most significant figure in the Fourth Shinobi World War. Kabuto's enhanced abilities allowed him to defeat Sasuke and the reborn Itachi, two Uchiha clan giants, repeatedly in combat.

White Snake Power

He may use Living Corpse Reincarnation on a victim when the moment is appropriate. In addition to improved regeneration, Orochimaru can rejoin his body with snakes if it is cut in half.

If the wounds are too serious to heal, he may even shed his skin and vomit a new body that is unharmed.


Earth, Water, and Wind are some of Kabuto's natures, along with Yin and Yang releases. He can upend the earth using Jirobo's DNA and Earth Release to move under the surface.

He may also utilize Water Release to summon water dragons and massive water missiles without a water supply nearby. Kabuto can create barriers in the anime to conceal his position and render himself invisible.

Medical Ninjutsu

Young Kabuto was taught medical ninjutsu by Nono Yakushi and showed a natural knack for it immediately. He can easily treat most wounds, even using a modest space to do the normally close-contact Mystical Palm Technique. He creates Yin Healing Wound Destruction to prevent injury to test victims before it occurs, but he may also use it on himself if he anticipates being seriously hurt.

Dead Soul Technique

To briefly restore the heartbeat of a corpse, the user operates on it. The user then manipulates the body's motions while concealing any evidence of the operation, giving the impression that the body is a living individual.

Kabuto Yakushi goes the additional mile to mask the body's odor so that none else can sense it. Kabuto enjoys using the corpses he has power over as body doubles, changing their appearances through plastic surgery so that they resemble him.

Kabuto also loves to be close while silencing his heartbeat to seem like a corpse. Kabuto is never seen managing more than one body at once, and if he walks too far away, the corpse becomes inactive.

Summoning: Reanimation

He can reincarnate dozens of people at once, which its creator, Tobirama Senju, was unable to achieve. He can also bring them back with the same strength they had when they were alive, which Orochimaru could not do.

Normally, Kabuto permits his resurrected soldiers to retain their personalities while doing his bidding, enhancing their effectiveness and enabling psychological warfare against individuals who knew them while they were alive.

He can control their behavior and remotely repress their individuality by stealing chakra from Orochimaru's cursed seals. Kabuto alters the reborn body of Madara Uchiha in several ways to give Madara his youth back and the Rinnegan and Wood Release.

Snake Sage Mode

At the Rychi Cave, Kabuto studied senjutsu with the White Snake Sage and he was then able to activate Sage Mode, which he can keep using because he has replicated Jgo's capacity to absorb natural energy continuously.

The only physical changes to Kabuto's appearance in Sage Mode are the marks surrounding his eyes, the four horns on the back of his head, and the brille that protects him from genjutsu and other visual attacks.

He says he went from being a snake to a dragon due to his metamorphosis. Kabuto can detect his environment and use Sage Mode to strengthen his jutsu and physical attacks and his physical defenses, speed, and reflexes.

In Other Media

In the Live Spectacle Naruto, the role of Kabuto was played by Tatsunari Kimura.

Studio Pierrot's Settei sheets of Kabuto show that he was 120 cm when he was found by Nono and 150 cm when he left to join Root with Danzō.

In Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth Full Power Ninja Chronicles, Kabuto serves as both the comedic foil to Orochimaru and the voice of reason when his master's schemes border on idiocy.


  1. (To Naruto) "After Orochimaru died, I found myself not knowing who I was, again… Without knowing my parents or country, I was taken in by the enemy… From a young age, I've moved about countries and villages as a spy… To me, things like countries, villages… they hold no firm reality in my mind. That was, of course, until I found myself under the wing of Orochimaru… but that presence is gone again. What am I anyway… The pain of not having an identity… I'd think you should understand… Naruto.
  2. (To Naruto) "I decided I wished to be like you as well, Naruto, and for that reason… with Lord Orochimaru now integrated into this body, I plan on finding a new "me," one stronger than Lord Orochimaru himself! Finding a new me is the lesson you taught me."
