Raijin was imprisoned because he killed one of his team members when he was a shinobi, because of a meal. He and his brother Fujin were sent to Konoha Strict Correctional Facility.
One night, Raijin and his brother felt so hungry that he broke the cell and went to look for food, but then they encountered Kotetsu Hagane and asked him where the food was, as they were very hungry. Kotetsu refused, which made both of them angry and when they about to attack, Izumo Kamizuki threw some rice balls at them and then they went back to their prison cell.
Mizuki then stole food from the food store and gave it to them. He then told them that there was a place where he knew where a feast was happening and if they helped him to get out of jail, he would take both Raijin and his brother to the feast. This was a lie and actually, he wanted to go to Orochimaru’s cave to become more powerful.
Tsunade sent Kurenai and Asuma Sarutobi to the Konoha Strict Correctional Facility to ask Mizuki about Orochimaru, but Fuijin and Raijin help Mizuki to defeat Kurenai and Asuma and then all the prisoners broke out from the jail.
Iruka Umino and Naruto Uzumaki went to stop Mizuki. Raijin and Fuijin were with him and together, they defeated Naruto but then Team Asuma came to Naruto's rescue.
Shikamaru Nara used his Shadow possession Jutsu to stop both of them and then Ino Yamanaka used her Mind Body Transfer Jutsu to take control over Fuijin, but Raijin punched and choked him to wake Fuijin up and then they overpowered the Ino-Shika-Cho Formation. When they were about to attack Team Asuma, Tsunade came and made them go back to prison.
Raijin always listens to his big brother Fuijin and loves him more than food. He is stupid just like his brother and even killed his comrade for food. He can do anything for food and if he doesn’t get food, he becomes angry.
Raijin is taller than his older brother Fujin. He wears an olive color open vest that shows his belly. He is a huge chubby guy and wears shorts. His vest collar is in a zigzag shape. He has small eyes and thin eyebrows.
Raijin is just as strong as his brother and can kill anyone with just physical strength. He is quick and can jump high easily. He was able to defeat many shadow clones of Naruto easily and also some Jonin-rank shinobi.
