Taisa is a character who first appears in the game, when a replica of the Nine-Tails destroys the Yumegakure village alongside other Amagiri clan members.
Later, when Naruto defeats Yomito, Yomito wants to continue fighting. Taisa disagrees and advises Yomito to leave to avoid getting hurt. Taisa then goes to the Forest of Mythic Beasts, inviting Naruto and his team to follow and confront them.
Later in the game, Naruto discovers that Gensui is alive, but Taisa, Yomito, and Ryuka refuse to believe him. When Gensui reveals himself, he instructs Taisa to kill the injured Yomito and Ryuka and join him in his plan to revive the Amagiri clan. Taisa, however, can't bring himself to harm his friends, leading to a conflict with Gensui. Gensui rejects Taisa and transforms him into a false Two-Tails using Tailed Beast Replication. Naruto eventually defeats this transformed Taisa, returning him to his original form.
Later in the game, when Gensui merges with the Three-Headed Guardian Beast, Taisa attempts to reason with him again. The beast tries to harm Taisa, but Naruto intervenes and saves him. Taisa then reluctantly trusts Naruto to defeat his father for the village's sake. After the beast is defeated and Gensui is restored to his true form, Taisa reconciles with his injured father, and the Tenro and Amagiri clans decide to work together for the village's well-being.
Taisa Amagiri is a caring young boy who used to hold grudges against Naruto Uzumaki because he thought Naruto destroyed their village. He stands for the right things and asks Naruto to stop his father.
Taisa wears a black samurai-like outfit with red marks around his clothes. His hood has a golden crescent moon-like ornament and purple markings. His face and arm guard also have red markings. He wears black trousers and has fair skin.
In the game, Taisa is known for his unique abilities and combat style. He specializes in poisons and taijutsu, using techniques like Poison Mist to unleash toxic attacks on his opponents. What sets him apart is his ability to summon large insects, somewhat resembling the Aburame clan's insects but much bigger. These insects have a nasty surprise - they release poison when defeated, making it essential for enemies to keep their distance.
Additionally, Taisa possesses a formidable Transformation Technique that transforms him into an armored beetle similar to a kabutomushi (a type of beetle). In this form, he becomes nearly impervious to regular attacks, except for his vulnerable underside. Interestingly, he can also wield lightning attacks while in this transformed state. Players need to provoke him into a charge attack to defeat him, causing him to flip over and expose his weak spot on the underside for damage.
