Yusuke is a fisherman from the Land of Fire. The Young Man and the Sea, which was episode 223 of Naruto Shippuden, featured him for the first time. Yusuke's life's ambition was to capture the Marlin, a gigantic fish. His father died as a result of their failure to capture a massive summoned marlin when he was a boy. Yusuke felt adamant that he would capture the marlin to avenge his father.
Yusuke attempted to defeat the summoned marlin that had defeated Aoba and Might Guy but faced defeat and was ultimately saved from danger by Naruto Uzumaki. This fish was a casualty of the Third Great Shinobi War. He claimed that as a result of the summon, fishermen shied away from the sea because they were afraid of catching fish. In order to catch the marlin, he desired a more durable boat, an internal combustion engine, and a fishing rod.
After listening to his side of the story, Naruto and his companions decided to help Yusuke in his pursuit. The following day, Yusuke was able to capture a marlin using his reliable fishing equipment and a boat that Yamato had built using Wood Release and that Guy had powered with the Eight Gates Technique. However, he let Naruto, Guy, Aoba, and Yamato take the marlin back to where it came from. The four ninjas got ready for their journey the following morning and set sail. Yusuke bids Naruto farewell as the ninja leave.
The current status of Yusuke is unknown to this day. Since he last met Naruto, he hasn’t made an appearance in the anime or the manga. As there is no information available proving otherwise, Yusuke is presumed to be alive and well.
