Yamame’s Background


Very little is known about Yamame as her past is still shrouded in mystery. Based on the information in hand, Yamame was a kunoichi of Otogakure and a member of Team Kajika, consisting of Iwana and herself, led by Kajika.


Yamame made her on-screen debut in the OVA Naruto: The Cross Roads. In the OVA, Team 7 of KonohaNaruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno led by Kakashi Hatake - is dispatched from Konoha to locate a missing person, Genmai, who was apparently lost in the hills.



However, Genmai was actually kidnapped by Kajika, a rogue ninja of Kirigakure, now affiliated with Otogakure. While Kakashi went on ahead to finish his reconnaissance for Genmai, the rest of Team 7 stayed behind. While they were waiting for their sensei to return, they were attacked by Team Kajika. As it turns out, Kajika kidnapped Genmai to lure Team 7 to them, particularly Sasuke Uchiha. As the Hidden Leaf genins defend themselves, Kajika takes advantage of this opportunity and kidnaps Sakura, taking her to their base while Yamame and Iwana kept Naruto and Sasuke occupied.



Later, Yamame and Iwana returned to Kajika after taking care of Naruto and Sasuke. However, to Kajika’s surprise, they were actually Sasuke and Naruto in disguise to catch Kajika off guard. What happened to Yamame after this incident is unknown.


This is the only incident where Yamame made an appearance, and she hasn’t reappeared since. Due to the lack of information, it is hard to determine whether she is still alive or not. For the time being, Yamame is believed to be deceased until any additional information comes to light suggesting otherwise.


Yamame’s Personality


Yamame has a limited role in the series and does not have any opportunity to display her personality. However, it is stated that Yamame was loyal to Orochimaru. Yamame was overconfident in her abilities as a kunoichi as she underestimated the genins of Team 7 and their abilities.


Yamame’s Appearance



Yamame had brown hair that was long and fashioned in large spikes all over her head. She had dark eyes, a black mask covering only her mouth and nose, and a thin black line protruding from the sides of the mask close to her mouth. She wore a female version of the shark-themed dress that her two teammates wore, except her outfit was light purple and exposed a lot of her cleavage.


Yamame’s Abilities


Yamame was a kunoichi of Otogakure. Based on the information available, she excelled in stealth missions. She was proficient in Hiding with Camouflage Jutsu. With this technique, she was able to manipulate the light around her with her chakra, making her essentially invisible to the naked eye.


Yamame was also skilled in Taijutsu, as seen by her role in the series. It is also believed he excelled in the use of ninja tools, evident by her skills using the Kama.
