Hebi ("Snake") is the group that Sasuke forms when he's looking to exact his revenge against Itachi. [[spoiler:After Itachi's death, Sasuke renames the group Taka ("Hawk/Eagle") and they join forces with the remainder of the Akatsuki]]. They only appear in ''Shippuden''.

''Here be spoilers. Any thing that has not been aired on the free version[[note]]one week after the paid version[[/note]] of [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/naruto-shippuden Crunchyroll]] should be spoiler-tagged.''


All Hebi members provide example of:
%% Not a FiveBadBand.
* HairContrastDuo: Sasuke and Suigetsu.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: If one looks at Hebi as a replacement Sasuke made for Team 7,
** Suigetsu is Naruto: rude and aggressive, treats Sasuke as a rival and has an element that is strong against one of Sasuke's elements while weak against the other one.
** Karin is Sakura, [[ClingyJealousGirl as she was when Sasuke knew her]].
** Jugo is Kakashi: normally laid back and even tempered, but with a dangerous side.

[[folder:Suigetsu Hozuki]]

-->''"The weapon of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen has been handed down, generation to generation, it's the tradition. And... all these years I've trained, I've only done it out of reverence for the Seven Ninja. So long as I have this sword, not even you can touch me... maybe."''

->Voiced by: TakashiKondo (JP), Creator/GrantGeorge (EN)

A former ninja from the prominent Hozuki family of Water Country. He wanted to join his brother Mangetsu as a member of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, but this was cut short when Mangetsu died and Suigetsu himself was captured by Orochimaru to be used for experiments. [[strike: Something of]] A BloodKnight, as he was apparently some sort of prodigy for cutting off his opponent's limbs before beheading them, though apparently gets along with animals. Can transform into liquid to avoid damage. [[spoiler:Takes Zabuza's sword, and wants to take Kisame's. His goal is evidently to take the swords of all the Swordsmen of the Mist in order to rebuild the group. He gets captured by the samurai at the Kage Summit, but he manages to break out of jail with Jugo]].
->His hobby is looking after his beloved sword.
->Favorite phrase: "The lower overcoming the higher"

* AmbiguouslyGay: One of his first scenes consists of him getting right up behind Sasuke while stark naked while playfully pointing a FingerGun at his head to test his reaction.
* AxCrazy: Has shown tendencies towards this.
** He has openly admitted ([[ChewingTheScenery in an over-the-top manner]]) that he likes cutting things.
* {{BFS}}: Mainly uses Zabuza's sword, and has trained to use the other Seven Mist Swordsmen's blades. In something of a subversion, carrying it around does tire him out some.
* BlobMonster: Able to resist some attacks by turning into water.
* BloodKnight: Though while working with Sasuke he wasn't allowed to kill anyone (he ignored this several times when Sasuke wasn't looking). [[HypocriticalHumor Then complains when Sasuke breaks his own rule]].
* ButtMonkey: He gets the snot beat out of him by Karin regularly likely due to being NighInvulnerable.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He's been portrayed as much more of a coward in recent chapters. Justified considering the people that he's around, and the fact that he has no longer has a weapon.
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: Accidentally found something in one of Orochimaru's hidden labs that could help Sasuke control Naruto and/or the Nine-Tails.]]
* CuteLittleFangs
** MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily
* DirtyCoward: He's terrified of people higher then him in the SuperWeightScale, most notably Orochimaru.
* DressingAsTheEnemy: [[spoiler:Tries this to escape from the samurai. It fails]].
* ElementalShapeshifter: Suigetsu can transform his body into water.
** OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Has turned his lower half into a fish tail.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's an unrepentant mass-murderer, but does occasionally chastise Sasuke. Unfortunately, this seems to be more about Sasuke mistreating animals like Manda than his plans for violent revenge.
* FingerGun: Makes the gesture at Sasuke when threatening him. One of his clan's signature techniques is to [[FingerFirearms fire a water bullet]] from a Finger Gun; in fact, he ends up doing so against [[spoiler:Spiral Zetsu]].
* GrowingMusclesSequence: He can expand the muscles in his arms to increase the power behind his sword strikes.
* JerkAss: He's a total dick to everyone who he knows won't respond with violence.
* TheLancer / TheDragon: Depending on whether your consider it a FiveManBand or FiveBadBand.
* MakingASplash: Controls mainly water-based techniques.
** GiantWallOfWateryDoom: He can turn into one which is powerful enough a technique to get physical with a ''tailed beast''!
* MrFanservice; Especially when he's bulked up.
* SempaiKohai: Refers to Kisame and Zabuza as "sempai" but whether it's sarcastic or not is up for debate.
* ToBeAMaster: Wants to be one of the Seven Swordsmen Of The Mist. In order to achieve that goal, he wants to collect all their swords, and allies with Sasuke to go after Itachi's partner Kisame, who has one of those swords.
* MagicPants: His clothes seems to change into water and back with the rest of his body, though when he fuses with a large body of water [[FullFrontalAssault his clothes seem to just dissolve]].
* OddFriendship: He develops one with Jugo.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: When Sasuke revives Orochimaru.]]
** [[spoiler:An even bigger one occurs when Hashirama releases ridiculous amount of chakra to supress his brother. Suigetsu starts to ''melt'' due to sheer fear.]]
* PsychoticSmirk: His default facial expression.
* PurpleEyes
* PutOnABus: Along with Juugo after the fight with the Raikage. Returns briefly in Chapter 567 alongside him as they make their escape- none the more wiser to the magnificent nightmare that occurred with their other two teammates. It'll be a nasty surprise...
* TheRival: To some degree with Sasuke.
* TheSociopath: Certainly displays those sorts of tendencies.
* TheSouthpaw: Most emphasized when he uses his [[GrowingMusclesSequence Great Water Arm Technique]].
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Karin.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Although it's more of a pale blue.

->Voiced by: Kanako Tojo (JP), Creator/AliHillis (EN)

Only female in Hebi. She has long since been a subordinate to Orochimaru and has been both an experimenter and an experimentee in his MadScientist ventures. She has a very powerful chakra-sensing ability. Wildly in love with Sasuke, just like nearly every other female in the series, but rude to everyone else. [[spoiler:She was rescued by Sasuke long ago in the Chunin Exams, which sparked the love interest.]] Not much of a combatant, but she can heal others by having them bite her. [[spoiler:Former genin from the Hidden Village of Grass and one of the scattered remnants of the Uzumaki Clan. After Sasuke betrays her during his fight with Danzo, she is taken by Team 7 to Konoha. Karin, painfully aware that Sasuke is no longer the chivalrous boy she fell head over heels for, subsequently abandons her infatuation. She was questioned by the Interrogation Squad, bawling her eyes out over the recent events, but Ibiki prevented his less-than-hardy subordinates from playing the sympathy card for her. Karin cooperated fairly well nevertheless, but because of her criminal association, she was placed in a holding cell so the Leaf could keep an eye on her. Karin then feigned a fit towards Sasuke that ping-ponged between rage towards the betrayal and phony fawning over him. It was all a ruse to throw off her guards from noticing her real intentions- use a hidden razor file in the stem of her glasses to begin sawing through the cell bars]].
->Her hobby is collecting perfumes.
->Favorite phrase: "A woman's desire can pass even through rock"

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Played with. She isn't exactly "unattractive" (even though {{Fanon}} would often describe her as such) but her eagerness to get in Sasuke's pants and his less-than-interested reaction towards her propositions make her one of these.
* ActionGirl: [[spoiler: Took her a long time but, as of Chapter 663, she demonstrated that she ''does'' have some fighting ability, similar to that of Kushina Uzumaki.]]
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Begins slavishly devoted to [[AntiHero Sasuke]]. [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] when she almost dies at Sasuke's hands. RealityEnsues. [[spoiler:Sort of.]]
* AnimeHair: Seriously, what's with her hair? It's long and straight on one side, but short and wild on the other. You could imagine how she would do that, but not ''why''. Though her hair is obviously [[RuleOfSymbolism symbolic]], referencing her MoodSwinger nature. And it seems that some ''[[RealityIsUnrealistic real]]'' people have their hair which does this.
* BareYourMidriff: Note that her vest has exactly the same shape [[SexyBacklessOutfit in her back]].
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: Saved the Gokage from the point of death, and is preparing to do the same for the whole Shinobi alliance.]]
** [[spoiler:Save the alliance in an epic fashion by stopping the statue which was [[CurbstompBattle curbstomping]] them with her EleventhHourSuperPower she just awoke for the sake of saving Sasuke.]]
* BlindWithoutEm: Like so many {{Meganekko}}. It's shown in a flashback that she has severe myopia.
* BoringButPractical: She practically embodies this trope. Sensing the location of whoever she wants isn't flashy or powerful, but it's pretty damn useful. Too bad [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness "useful" doesn't equal "indispensable"]].
* ChainPain: [[spoiler:She can summon the same chakra chains as her distant relative Kushina]].
* ClingyJealousGirl: Karin wants to have Sasuke only for herself. She won't leave him despite having plenty occasions to leave. Until Sasuke stabs her. She then promptly decide that she is not interested anymore. [[spoiler: Upon encountering Sasuke again she quickly forgives him. Sometimes. She now flip-flops between loving and hating him, to the point that it might even be a split personality.]]
* CoveredWithScars: Her arms, shoulders, and even her chest are covered in scars from people biting her.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Cherry hair, cherry eyes.
* DarkChick: She's the Chick in a team where two members are AxCrazy and the leader is revenge obsessed.
* DetectEvil: She feels if someone's chakra is "warm" (good) or "cold" (evil).
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:Gets right back to admiring Sasuke, especially jarring after he stabbed her to get to Danzo and even attempt to finish the job earlier.]]
* EmpathicHealer: Can heal by allowing an ally to bite her and drain her chakra, causing her pain and draining her energy. Kabuto later implies this ability to be due to the unnatural vigor in the Uzumaki's life giving chakra combined with Orochimaru's experimentation.
* EvilRedhead: [[TheGoodTheBadAndTheEvil Depending on if you count her as "evil" or not]].
* FieryRedhead
* TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne: Can feel the amount of chakra people have.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Her red hair, like [[spoiler:Kushina]]'s and [[spoiler:Nagato]]'s, is what marks her as a member of the [[spoiler:Uzumaki]] bloodline.
* TheGlassesGottaGo: Pulls off her glasses whenever she gets lascivious with Sasuke.
* HairColorSpoiler: The red color is a trademark of the Uzumaki clan.
* HartmanHips: If some official pictures with an obvious MaleGaze are to be believed.
* HealingFactor: Her natural vitality and life giving chakra was [[PlayingWithSyringes amplified]] to GoodThingYouCanHeal levels from Kabuto and Orochimaru's experimentation.
* HiddenSupplies: She keeps a blade hidden in her glasses and a set of [[MasterOfUnlocking lockpicks in a picture frame]].
* InsufferableGenius: Has light shades of this.
* LivingLieDetector: Can sense people's chakra being disturbed if they lie.
* LooksLikeSheIsEnjoyingIt: Her special healing ability requires for the person who she wants to heal to bite her. Her facial expression while being bit is pretty...interesting to say the least. Of course, the anime cranks this UpToEleven.
* MadLove: [[spoiler:Sasuke just apologizes and she's back on his hook. Luckily for her he was being sincere.]]
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: [[spoiler: Got ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice and had your insides skewered? Big deal! Just heal yourself and keep going for the man you love.]]
* MaleGaze: In the same fashion that [[{{Foil}} Sakura]]. They both have [[ACupAngst a small chest]], so fanservicey manga pictures give focus on their butts instead.
* {{Meganekko}}: [[{{Tsundere}} Subverted]]. [[spoiler:Played straight when she was younger, from what we got to see]].
* MemeticMolester: Toward Sasuke.
* MoodSwinger: Most recent example: crying about how she was forced into working for Orochimaru and Sasuke one minute, then snarkily asking for something to eat in exchange for more info about Akatsuki the next. Currently acting like one so the guards won't notice the lock picks she hid in a picture of Sasuke. [[spoiler:Then it turns out that it wasn't an act; she really ''does'' jump back and forth between loving Sasuke and hating him for betraying her]].
* MsFanservice: She's overloaded with {{fanservice}} tropes, save for big breasts. See also MaleGaze above.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Her primary ability.
* NerdGlasses: [[spoiler: May or may not hide a tiny saw.]]
* NeutralFemale: She can't help at all in physical combat. But she possesses other very useful skills.
* NighInvulnerable: [[spoiler:Courtesy of her healing factor, which may well be superior to Naruto's.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Empathizes greatly with Sakura to the point of crying when she does because she understands just how she feels.
* PersonalSpaceInvader: She is one for Sasuke.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler: After she is taken into the Leaf's custody.]]
* RescueRomance: [[spoiler:Sasuke saved her from a giant bear during the second part of the Chuunin examination]].
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Karin is of Uzumaki descent]].
* SatelliteCharacter: Remove her relation to Sasuke and there is practically nothing left, despite having potential for an interesting backstory.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: The greatest one in the series which is why Sasuke sought her out.
* ShadowArchetype: For a long time, she seemed to embody, [[UpToEleven Upped To Eleven]], all the flaws of pre-timeskip Sakura. Like the latter, she also displays shades of TeenGenius.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Doesn't seem interested in other guys than Sasuke. She could have left at any moment but she stays for Sasuke. In the end, [[UngratefulBastard she should have left]].
* SmittenTeenageGirl: She's 16 years old after all.
* SpiderSense
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Sasuke. She joined his team just so she can follow him around and carries around his sweaty, discarded clothes on occasion.
* SuperDetailedFightNarration: Is very keen on observing the abilities of other characters, being able to figure out the secrets to Danzo's techniques.
* SupportPartyMember: She helps out with her sensor powers to discern locations and the nature of enemy jutsu, and by healing comrades.
* TeenGenius: Leads one of Orochimaru's lair at only 16. Plus she knows quite more than most people about the Tailed-beasts. Its implied she aided Orochimaru in some of his MadScientist ventures.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Suigetsu.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: Awakens the ability to use chakra chains and beats a wooden statue that was single handedly crushing the whole alliance and [[NoSell tanks]] an attack which killed people, including Neji, by skewering their insides by just biting herself as if it was no big deal.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Tsuntsun towards EVERYBODY, including Sasuke if there are other people around.
* WeakButSkilled: She goes ActionGirl on a few occasions, but is mostly a healer. [[spoiler: Not anymore after she starts using the same powers as Kushina Uzumaki.]]
* WhoWearsShortShorts: Perfect for {{Fanservice}} shots.
* {{Yandere}}: She once considers drugging Suigetsu and Jugo to rape Sasuke while he's wounded and weak.
* ZettaiRyouiki: The rarer version with shorts.


-->''I won't let you die; you're a memento of Kimimaro.''

->Voiced by: Shuhei Sakaguchi (JP), TravisWillingham (EN)

Big guy whose personality flip-flops between a psychopath and a really nice guy. He once roamed the countryside destroying villages when he was consumed by his berserk rage and willingly subjected himself to Orochimaru's human experimentation labs to look for a cure for his condition. He [[SpeaksFluentAnimal can talk to animals]] as well as [[ShapeshifterWeapon transform his body]]. Orochimaru made his Cursed Seals by replicating an enzyme that Jugo's body produced.[[spoiler: He gets captured by the samurai during the Kage Summit, but manages to break out of jail with Suigetsu]]. [[spoiler:The enzyme in Jugo's body causes his split personality by slowly accumulating natural energy constantly over time until it has to be released, at which point Jugo snaps into a violent frenzy.]]
->His hobbies are forest bathing and playing with birds.
->Favorite phrase: "Pure Samādhi"

* ActorAllusion: This isn't the first time TravisWillingham has voiced an [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk easily disturbed person]] [[TheSuperHeroSquadShow who turns into a monster]].
* AllEncompassingMantle: His default attire is one of these with [[WalkingShirtlessScene no shirt underneath]]
* AxCrazy: When his SuperpoweredEvilSide takes over, he will gleefully kill everyone around him. The beginning of Jugo's transformation (non-aesthetically) is a sudden urge to kill.
* [[spoiler:AppendageAssimilation]]: In contrast to the below, he can also ''take'' flesh from others to heal himself, though so far he's kept it limited to [[HumanResources people who were already dead]].
* BadassLongcoat: When his team visits a family friend of Sasuke's, they try to find him a shirt. When they can't find any that fit, they instead give him a ''[[CurtainClothing curtain]]'' to wear as a cloak.
* TheBigGuy / TheBrute: One of the tallest characters of the series (so much that he can hardly find clothing his size) and the muscle of Sasuke's team. He's a GentleGiant while sane, but his evil side is very much the Brute.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy[=/=]SupernaturalGoldEyes: Typically has at least one when berserk.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DressingAsTheEnemy: [[spoiler:Tries this to escape from the samurai. It fails]].
* EvilLaugh[=/=]LaughingMad: His psychopathic side, especially when he is in his fully transformed state.
* GentleGiant: When he's not overcome by bloodlust, that is.
* InHarmonyWithNature: [[spoiler:Jugo's family is naturally in tune with natural chakra which they are constantly absorbing which unfortunately causes them to periodically transform into monstrous subhuman creatures with a personality to match.]]
* JekyllAndHyde
* LiquidAssets: He can heal people compatible with his cursed seal as well as drain the life-force of others to heal himself.
* MarkedChange: When he activates his cursed genes assuming it hasn't just dyed his skin.
* MrFanservice
* NatureIsNotNice: [[spoiler:At least when natural builds up the result isn't...]]
* NiceGuy: When his SuperpoweredEvilSide is not in control he seems to be a rather sweet, kind guy, possibly the nicest guy in the series.
* OddFriendship: With Suigetsu.
* OneWingedAngel: Is able to transform with his special ability that was the source for the curse mark.
* OnlyFriend: Seems to have been this to Kimimaro, who was also his only friend due to being the one person who could subdue him - he closed himself off after Kimimaro's death until dedicating himself to Sasuke, who he views as his deceased friend's legacy.
* OnlySaneMan: When he's not in his rage state, he's the lone decent, rational individual on a team led by an unhinged maniac that also contains a sociopathic thrill-killer and an obnoxious, emotionally unstable bitch.
* PartialTransformation: He often transforms his arms into the cursed seal form to deliver a powerful punch or slash to his enemy.
* PutOnABus: Along with Suigetsu after the fight with the Raikage. Returns in Chapter 567, though neither of them know what happened to their other two teammates...and probably shouldn't anyway...
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Can turn his body parts into things like [[PowerFist giant piston arms]], [[RubberMan extendable appendages]] [[BladeBelowTheShoulder blades]], [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe shields]] and even a {{Jetpack}} or WaveMotionGun.
* SleepModeSize: He can give some of his flesh to heal someone who's compatible, but turns into a kid as a result.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Able to talk to and use animals.
* TheStoic: If not in his psychotic state.
* [[spoiler: SuperEmpowering: Infuses Sasuke's Susanoo with his senjutsu, enabling it to enter Cursed Seal Mode.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: His status as a Jobber can generally be dismissed as his unwillingness to hurt people, while he is said and shown to be able to do a LOT more damage when he gives in to his bloodlust.
* TokenEvilTeammate: His Hyde personality.
* TokenGoodTeammate: SuperpoweredEvilSide aside, he's a NiceGuy who circumstances have more or less left him stuck with a [[AxCrazy raging psychopath]], an [[JerkAss amoral douchebag]], and an [[{{Tsundere}} obnoxious bitch]].
* UndyingLoyalty: To Sasuke for being Kimimaro's legacy.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: He doesn't seem to possess any fighting ability that doesn't involve his shape-shifting abilities and there are implications he isn't even a trained shinobi at all.
** Then again, his "Hammer" is more like a SwissArmyWeapon '' la'' VideoGame/{{Prototype}}, he doesn't really ''need'' any.
* TheWorfEffect: He can be considered his team's designated {{jobber}}, as he was quickly dispatched by Killer Bee ''offscreen'', and [[spoiler:both his upgraded form and BeamSpam]] were useless against [[spoiler:the Raikage]] (granted, it appears that [[KansasCityShuffle he wasn't expecting that to work, just for it to be a proper distraction]]).
