Kusune’s Background


Very little is known about Kusune as his past is still shrouded in mystery. Kusune is an anime-only character and does not appear in Naruto manga, making him a non-canon character.


Kusune made his debut in episode 184 of Naruto Shippuden in the Past Arc: The Locus of Konoha. In the episode, Kusune and his partner Gameru requested ninja tools from Io, the ninja tool inventor of Konoha. However, Io denied their request as he refused to provide ninja tools to outsiders, anyone not from Konoha.



Kusune and his partner tried to take Io’s tool by force, but they had to defeat Naruto Uzumaki, Neji Hyuga, and Tenten in a battle to do so. Kusune and Gameru fought Naruto and Neji. However, the genin found themselves in a tough situation, unable to defeat their opponents due to Io’s prototype ninja tools in Kusune and Gameru’s possession. Then, Tenten entered the battle with Io’s latest ninja tool, Jidabda, and defeated Kusune and Gameru.


Kusune has not reappeared since this incident. Thus, it makes it next to impossible to determine his current status. For the time being, he is presumed to be alive until additional information comes to light suggesting otherwise.


Kusune’s Personality


Kusune is overconfident in his abilities as a shinobi and often underestimates others by their appearances. However, he acknowledged Naruto and Neji’s abilities as shinobi and determined it was best to maintain distance from them. Kusune also puts a lot of faith in ninja tools and is always eager to acquire more powerful and destructive weapons.


Kusune also refuses to acknowledge Konoha’s strength as a village. He believes that Konoha has become weak since Orochimaru’s attack on the village, which made it easy for them to cross Konoha’s borders as they did not face any obstacles.


Kusune’s Appearance


Kusune has small black eyes and black hair, which is assumed because his eyebrows are black. He covers his face and head with a purple scarf that only reveals his eyes. He is dressed in a black ninja costume with what looks to be shoulder-length torn-off sleeves. Under this, he is dressed in a short-sleeved black mesh shirt with black lining at the armholes.


A little black wristband is also visible on each of his lower arms, just below the wrists. In his right hand, he is shown wielding the Tsurukame.


Kusune’s Abilities


Kusune is a skilled shinobi. He enhances his defensive fighting style with the help of Tsurukame, giving him the ability to fight several enemies simultaneously. He could also shoot senbon targeted at his opponents with Tsurukame.


He also showcased his ability to use Fuinjutsu, sealing jutsu, as he could seal Tsurukame when not in use. In addition, he also displayed his caliber in Rapid Fire Jutsu.
