Hidden Sand Village

Team Shinki

    Shinki 

Shinki

Voiced by: Yuuto Uemura (JP)

Debut: Boruto Chapter 3 (Manga), Boruto: Naruto the Movie (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinki3.jpg

A genin of the Sand village who enters the chunin exams. He is Gaara's adopted son. Like the Third Kazekage before him he can use the Iron Sand technique.


  • Advertised Extra: Both Shinki and his team were advertised along with the Konoha kids as being a major part of the chunin exams in Boruto: The Movie. But they actually only appear for a few seconds, with no background on their characters. However, he's featured a lot more in the movie than his other two teammates and gets in a line or two.
  • Adaptation Expansion: In the anime adaption of the movie, Shinki has been featured far more prominently, and has had several interactions with Boruto, expressing interest in him as a fellow son of a Kage, albeit an adopted one.
  • Black Cloak: He wears one made from Iron Sand, which can spread out to fulfill various purposes. He uses this sand to save himself and his teammates during the first day of the Chunnin Exam, win against Metal Lee during the second day of the Chunnin Exam and win against Chocho during the third day of the Chunnin Exam.
  • Caring Gardener: A hobby he shares with his adoptive father and uncle, who both enjoy cultivating cacti and other desert plants.
  • Dem Bones: His puppet is a demonic looking skeleton.
  • Facial Markings: Just like Kankurō, Shinki sports face paint, which takes the shape of two red ヲ wo markings that are similar to designs on Gaara's Sand Gourd.
  • Flechette Storm: A favored tactic of his is firing spikes of iron shrapnel at his enemies.
  • Giant Hands of Doom: According to Gaara, his favorite Jutsu is Black Iron Fist which makes gigantic arms out of Iron Sand.
  • Happily Adopted: He's quite close to his adoptive father and uncle, always acts respectful towards them, and even shares Gaara's love of gardening.
  • Homing Projectile: One of his specialties is leaving a magnetized mark of iron sand on an enemy and using it to attract his other attacks.
  • Jerkass: He's extremely rude and dismissive to his opponents; before his match with Chocho he even mocks her because her parents will have to watch her humiliating defeat. He later dismisses Mitsuki's jutsus as mere magic tricks.
  • Magnetism Manipulation: He wields the Iron Sand with the Magnet Release. Using this principle he can make a unavoidable piercing spear of Iron Sand by marking enemies and using attractive forces to direct it.
  • Marionette Master: He is a wielder of the Sand Village's signature puppet ninjutsu technique in the movie version, but in the manga and anime this trait is passed to Araya and he solely wields the Iron Sand.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: He's briefly seen defeating two of the new generation from Konoha in the Chunnin Exams: Metal Lee and Chocho. Subverted in the anime, which shows the fights in full (though they're not very long regardless).
  • One Steve Limit: Unrelated to the demon from Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3.
  • Power Gives You Wings: For his ultimate technique he can make wings from his iron sand to sustain flight, with them he can fire metal Feather Flechettes.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: According to the manga, his hobbies are gardening and embroidery.
  • Slasher Smile: In the anime, during his fight with Chocho he flashes one of these.
  • This Means Warpaint: Much like Kankuro before him, he has traditional bunraku face paint on.

    Yodo 

Yodo

Voiced by: Aoi Inase (JP)

Debut: Boruto Chapter 3 (Manga), Boruto: Naruto the Movie (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yodo0.jpg

A female genin of the Sand village who enters the chunin exams.


  • Advertised Extra: She's featured in promotional pictures for the movie, but doesn't do anything of substance. This is generally averted in the anime where she is a bit more fleshed out.
  • Blow You Away: Her main attack jutsu has her use her hair as a medium for launching a cutting wave of air and sound at the enemy.
  • Generation Xerox: She faces Shikadai Nara in the third round of the Chunin Exams off-screen. A Nara boy facing a sand village kunoichi, who is blonde, in the Chunin Exams? Hmm, wonder where that will lead? Though unlike Temari before her, she loses her fight.
  • In the Hood: She wears one over her head.
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: She is often reprimanded by her superiors for listening to music with her headphones over the people around her. Its later revealed that due to her super hearing that she listens to music to avoid Sensory Overload.
  • Japanese Delinquents: Kishimoto said he wanted to draw Yodo as a punk-like girl.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Although hidden by her hood, her hair is actually very long and almost down to her ankles.
  • Super Senses: She has extremely acute hearing and from it she has a form of Combat Clairvoyance.
  • The Worf Effect: The novel seems to suggest she is perhaps the strongest and most talented on her team. So when Shikadai is said to have easily defeated her, it only hyped his character up and showed how strong he was before his fight with Boruto.

  • Advertised Extra: He's featured in promotional pictures for the movie but doesn't do anything of substance. This is generally averted in the anime where he is a bit more fleshed out.
  • BFS His main weapon is a very long sword that he keeps on his back.
  • Blade on a Stick: When sheathed his scabbard has a blade that allows him to use it as a spear.
  • Body Double: Of a sort, he often uses a puppet that looks exactly like him in place of himself.
  • Cool Mask: He wears a demon mask that Inojin criticizes as too flashy.
  • Marionette Master: He is actually a master of puppet jutsu.
  • Nervous Wreck: He panics when being watched by others, so he uses a puppet while he can hide from the limelight.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: He defeats Inojin to move on in the chuunin exams. But the fight is never shown. This is averted in the anime adaptation where his match with Inojin is shown in full and he has another full fight with Sarada.
  • Robotic Reveal: Its revealed that he often uses a puppet that looks exactly like him to fight while he hides nearby.
  • The Quiet One: He rarely ever speaks.
  • Sheath Strike: He wields a long sword that he keeps sheathed on his back, but when fighting Inojin he doesn't bother to draw the blade and takes him out with the sword still in its scabbard.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: His sword is long enough to use as a staff when sheathed and the sheath even has a hidden blade so it can be used as a spear.

  • Advertised Extra: Both Yurui and his team were advertised along with the Konoha kids as being a major part of the chunin exams in Boruto: The Movie.

He also happens to be the grandson of the fourth Mizukage Yagura Karatachi who's trying his best to avoid his grandfather's heritage.
