Neo Akatsuki

    Shin Uchiha Sr. 

Shin Uchiha Sr.

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (JP), Mick Wingert (EN)

Debut: Naruto Gaiden Chapter 2 (Manga), Boruto Episode 20 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shin_uchiha_render_3__naruto_ol__by_maxiuchiha22_ddf03op.png

"Peace means an end to evolution for humans, that's exactly what you all are. Species without evolution are eventually destroyed."

The man Shin is working for, who Shin refers to as his "father". He was a former test subject of Orochimaru. After developing a fixation on the Uchiha clan, more specifically Itachi, he took the Uchiha name for himself and severed ties with Orochimaru, taking his "sons" with him. Believing that peace was detrimental to human evolution, Shin began a plot to revive the Akatsuki so that the ensuing conflict would be a catalyst to further his beliefs.


  • Abusive Parents: Can't get any worse than using your child's organs (even if that kid is a clone) to heal yourself.
  • Alone with the Psycho: After he performs the organ transplant on himself, he tries to invoke this to Sakura but it backfires. Turns out, Sakura had been trying to get as much information out of him as she could before "tidying things up".
  • An Arm and a Leg: His right arm became Danzo's right arm.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Despite all his tough talks, he accomplished none of his goals, didn't win any battles, and was ultimately killed off by his own clone sons.
  • Black Cloak: He wears a hooded black cloak over an Akatsuki robe.
  • Cloning Blues: He himself is the original with a special DNA structure that Orochimaru picked up for his experiments and Shin and the others are clones of him.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Though many of the Akatsuki whom he is looking to succeed couldn't be contrasted to him, Shin seems to be a clear contrast to Nagato and Obito if his objective is to cause war rather than prevent it.
  • Death by Irony: After spending the entire miniseries telling everyone that true evolution can only be achieved by sacrificing the weak and that children are no better than spare parts, Shin gets killed when his own clones turn against him since his own weakening body and Sharingan make him obsolete as their father.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: He has Sharingan eyes all over his body.
  • Fanboy:
    • He's one to the Akatsuki, wearing a black coat with the red cloud emblem under his cloak and seeking to create his own iteration of the group.
    • He's also an Itachi fanboy according to Orochimaru, who noted that Shin's fascination bordered on obsession.
  • Flying Weapon: Like his son, his Mangekyo Sharingan grants remote control over any weapon he's marked. He uses this trick to stab Naruto by marking Sasuke's sword, catching them both off-guard.
  • In the Hood: He wears one to hide his face and Sharingan eyes.
  • Jerkass: Is a pretty massive dick to everyone, has no problem letting his clones (who are essentially his own children) die in order to save himself, and has said clones' organs harvested when he needs to stave off death. As such, most people didn't particularly mourn him when the Shin Jr's executed him.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em:
    • He calls Shin Jr. off from attacking Naruto, knowing the boy is clearly outmatched.
    • Later, after getting Mama Bear Moded by Sakura, he retreats without delay.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He constantly treats his clones as disposable pawns, only for the clones to betray him for being weakened and injured, rationalizing their actions with his very own Social Darwinism.
  • Magical Eye: He has Sharingan with three tomoe not just in his eye sockets, but all over his body. His left eye has a discoloured sclerae and has stitches keeping it open. He can also use the Mangekyo Sharingan, which has the same design as Shin Jr's.
  • Meaningful Name: In Japanese, a number of characters are pronounced as "Shin", among them being "new" (新) or "true" (真), contributing to the initial mystery of the characters' connection to the Uchiha clan.
  • Organ Theft: He personally guts Shin Jr. to get them.
  • Seeing Through Another's Eyes: Via a weird looking creature resembling Deidara's creations or the mini Ten-Tails spawn.
  • Social Darwinist: In a weird twist of this trope, he believes that peace prevents evolution from happening, and this will mean the eventual end of mankind. With that, he manages to mix Social Darwinism with War Is Glorious all in one sentence. His effort to resurrect Akatsuki can be seen as a way to restart the "evolution".
  • Slasher Smile: He flashes an unsettling grin when Sasuke challenges him, made more unsettling due to the fact that he has no teeth!
  • Start My Own: He plans to start a new Akatsuki organization. Not only does he fail, it doesn't even get off the ground!
  • War Is Glorious: Implied by his Social Darwinism philosophy. His effort to resurrect Akatsuki could be seen as him trying to restart war.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • He targets Sarada with his flying daggers the moment Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode shielding her starts fading.
    • He's completely unconcerned about putting Shin Jr. in harm's way, using the boy as a shield or as an organ donor.
    • Despite being injured and betrayed by his clones, he still tries to kidnap Sarada and Chocho with his teleporting creature. Thankfully Sarada saw an end to that.

    Shin Uchiha Jr. 

Shin Uchiha Jr.

Voiced by: Misuzu Togashi (JP), Alex Cazares (EN)

Debut: Naruto Gaiden Chapter 2 (Manga), Boruto Episode 19 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shin_uchiha__clone__render__naruto_ol__by_maxiuchiha22_ddf03nz.png

A mysterious white-haired boy with Sharingan eyes. Later revealed to be just the name given to the various individual genetic clones of the original Shin Uchiha, who treats them both as sons and organ donors.


  • Artificial Human: He's a younger clone of his father.
  • Berserk Button: Sasuke outright makes him homicidal and furious. Seeing Naruto has this effect on him as well. This behavior is learned from his father. Once he's out of the picture, and after being talked out of more fighting by Naruto, the Shin Jr's lose this trait.
  • Bullying a Dragon: His first act is to attack Sasuke. This is just as hilariously one-sided as it sounds. He later one ups himself trying to attack Naruto, again to no meaningful effect.
  • Cloning Blues: There are scores of him.
  • The Dragon: He answers to a mysterious figure dressed in an Akatsuki robe and hooded black cloak who he refers to as his father.
  • Epic Flail: Shin seems to favor chain weapons, using both a chain sickle and a chain with a Fuma Shuriken on its head.
  • Flechette Storm: His Fuma Shuriken can be broken into a rain of spikes to attack a group of opponents.
  • Flying Weapon: His Mangekyo Sharingan allows him to remotely control any weapon he's marked with a seal on his hand, to the point of being able to break them into shards and still control the pieces.
  • Giant Mook: He has a giant clone of himself.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Like Shin S., Shin Jr. believes in "the strongest survive" philosophy. Shin Jr. kills him because he was too weak to even walk.
  • Magical Eye: He has two Sharingan with three tomoe, and he's able to use the Mangekyo Sharingan.
  • Meaningful Name: Like their father's name. In Japanese, a number of characters are pronounced as "Shin", among them being "new" (新) or "true" (真), contributing to the initial mystery of the characters' connection to the Uchiha clan.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Shin Sr. treated all his clone sons as expendable organ donors. They killed him for it.
  • Oh, Crap!: One of them has this reaction fighting Naruto. When he uses his Sharingan to look into Naruto's inner world and sees Kurama giving him a Death Glare, he nearly wets himself and loses the will to fight.
  • Orphanage of Love: The clones are adopted into Konoha, with Kabuto running the orphanage.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He wants to kill Sasuke to avenge Itachi's death and restore the Uchiha clan's honor.
  • Self-Made Orphan: He kills Shin Sr. for being too weak.
  • Sinister Scythe: He wields a chain-scythe when attacking Sasuke.
  • Social Darwinist: A firm believer in this like Shin Sr. He even kills him for being too weak to move.
  • Villain Teleportation: The creature accompanying him has the same Mangekyo Sharingan design as him and can use Kamui to teleport.
  • Walking Transplant: His father freely uses him for organ donation, even if it will kill him. There's more where he came from.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Orochimaru casually says that Shin's clones are expendable beings once they've outlived their usefulness. Naruto disagrees and later makes it a point to offer the kids a new home in the Orphanage of Love Kabuto runs, hoping that with time and proper training they will learn to fit in with others.
  • We Have Reserves: Since there are many of them, Shin Sr. doesn't mind sacrificing them for an advantage.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has white — or at least light-colored — hair, and serves as an antagonist in Naruto Gaiden.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: They eventually decide that since they are newer than their "father", they are also stronger, and act accordingly.

New Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist

    As A Whole 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b17f39670eeb775bf782d562be2fd797.jpg
The self-proclaimed Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist were formed by Shizuma Hoshigaki, the group's main objective was to start a coup d'état in Kirigakure to overthrow the Sixth Mizukage and replace him with Kagura Karatachi, as well as return the village to the era of the "Bloody Mist". Ultimately, the rogue group was defeated and their rebellion stopped before it could actually begin, being written off as "just a scuffle among kids". Afterward, the group's original members were imprisoned in a correction center to undergo rehabilitation.
  • Arc Villain: As the group that Shizuma is leading, they also count as the villains of the Field Trip Arc.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Like their predecessors, each of their names is derived from a type of produce.
  • Japanese Delinquents: They aren't too far removed from a band of incredibly powerful delinquents.
  • Smug Snake: Pretty cocky bunch despite just being a group of kids with ridiculous goals.
  • Super Weapon, Average Joe: As for as skills go, the majority of them range from unremarkable to average and only put as much of a fight as they did was thanks to the unique properties of the swords they used. And even then they weren't that difficult to beat.

    Shizuma Hoshigaki 

Shizuma Hoshigaki

Voiced by: Ryohei Kimura (JP), Xander Mobus (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 25

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_57.png

Leader of a gang of delinquent ninja who believes in reviving the Blood Mist era of the Hidden Mist. While he claims that it is to restore the Mist to its "glory days", in truth, Shizuma is a psychotic piece of filth who will kill anyone who stands in his way and commits these heinous acts simply because it's fun. His plans never see fruition when he's taken down by Boruto and Kagura.


  • Assimilation Backfire: Thought he could control the notoriously picky Samehada blade. The blade ends up "eating" him and then "wearing" his body. Luckily for him, he's saved by Boruto and Kagura.
  • Arc Villain: He is the main antagonist for the Field Trip Arc.
  • Ax-Crazy: The man is disturbed...
  • Bad Boss: Badly wounds Tsurushi Hachiya after the latter fails twice.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While certainly a powerful ninja, his ambitions are thwarted in the space of a few hours, no one takes him seriously and his group dissolves before it can get off the ground!
  • Bishounen: For a guy whose bloodline makes him look like a humanoid shark, Shizuma is weirdly pretty.
  • Blood Knight: A battle-hungry warrior obsessed with war and combat.
  • Blood Magic: Using his own blood as a medium, Shizuma can use Samehada's power to taint his Blood Mist Barrier causing him to steal chakra from his enemies' open wounds.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: After he is absorbed by Samehada, both existences are a horrible fusion of one another with great power, but unlike Kisame, Shizuma has no control over the form and he's defeated in a couple of well-timed and powerful hits.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Attempting to murder the Hokage's son to intentionally spark a war is probably one of the stupidest ideas to date. Does he really think he and six other inexperienced brats are going to be able to take on the world in war? Does he think he can face Naruto's wrath once the Hokage learns who murdered his son? Does he really think he can wield the Samehada in the same vein as Kisame?
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seems to have a genuine soft spot for Kagura, and says he has watched over him to protect him for years. Later revealed to be just another manipulation: he cares for no one save himself.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Seems nice enough when we first see him, getting his underling Hassaku to stop attacking Boruto and his friends. Like his clansman Kisame, he's also unfailingly polite, even to enemies, and insists on proper honorifics being used at all times. Under that, he's a dangerous psychotic murderer with no care for anyone or anything save his own amusement.
  • For the Evulz: Why does he want a war so bad? "It's fun! Why else?"
  • Fusion Dance: Forced by the sentient Samehada blade to merge together when Shizuma proves to be too "weak". While this powers him up, Shizuma loses all reasoning in his new form. Boruto and Kagura still manage to defeat him and force the two apart.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: Samehada absorbs the chakra from his enemies and heals its wielder of any wounds they may suffer, making it nearly impossible to defeat him unless one can separate the sword from the swordsman.
  • Hate Sink: Nothing about this guy is redeemable. Nothing. In-universe, Boruto considers him a piece of crap for trying to manipulate Kagura, and Suigetsu just considers him an "immature brat" who knows nothing about the horrors of war. Out-universe, the fandom hates his existence not only for the reasons above but for actually thinking he could get away with his goals.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He really should've known more how Samehada can turn on its wielder....
  • Hypocrite: Despite decrying Chojuro and Mei for assassinating those against them, Shizuma happily has those who oppose his plans secretly murdered.
  • Instant Expert: Shockingly good with the notoriously finicky sword Samehada the first time he ever uses it. At least, at first...
  • Japanese Delinquents: Shown to be the leader of a group of genin who act like these.
  • Laughing Mad: His reaction as Samehada starts to eat and absorb him.
  • Making a Splash: Like his clansman Kisame, Shizuma specializes in water jutsu.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Has played on Kagura's trauma of having left a nasty scar on him in his bloodlust for years to get Kagura to join his team.
  • Normal Fishina Tiny Pond: Compared to the rest of the group, minus Kagura, he actually is fairly skilled and could even use Samehada fairly well (for a bit, at least), it's just his goals required FAR more power to accomplish then either he or his group have.
  • Scars Are Forever: Sports a wicked scar on his chest from one of Kagura's bloodlusted fits.
  • Shark Man: Has gills under his eyes, just like Kisame.
  • Slasher Smile: With all those sharp teeth, his grins are downright unnerving. Seems to run in the Hoshigaki family.
  • Start My Own: Establishes himself as the "leader" of the New Seven Swordsmen of the Mist. They're all defeated in the span of a few hours by the Mizukage and a few ''Academy'' students.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Starts losing his grip on sanity when Boruto, Mitsuki, and Kagura overwhelm in combat and then reacts with horror and disbelief when Samehada starts to absorb him.
  • Villain Has a Point: Okay, so maybe he does have a bit of a legitimate gripe about his family and clan being absolutely erased from the annals of Kirigakure's history...How much of his ramblings was a lie, however, remains to be seen.
  • Visionary Villain: Believes in bringing the Hidden Mist back to prominence. Of course, to do this, he feels he needs to revive the Blood Mist.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Need to start a war? Just murder the Hokage's son!
  • Younger Than They Look: He's only eighteen, though he appears older.

    Hassaku Onomichi 

Hassaku Onomichi

Voiced by: Toru Nara (JP), Keith Silverstein (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 25

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_93.png

One of the first members of the new seven swordsmen introduced. First makes an appearance by picking a fight with Iwabee, before Boruto got involved and Shizuma stopped it. Ends up taking Kubikiribocho, the blade previously used by Zabuza.


  • Afro Asskicker: Sports an afro that's barely contained by his shinobi forehead protector.
  • BFS: The Kubikiribocho.
  • Curb S Tomp Battle: Ends up on the receiving end of one from Chōjūrō, with a broken katana.
  • Meaningful Name: Like the other Swordsmen of the Mist, his name refers to a type of produce, in his case the Hassaku orange.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Emphasis on unskilled as out of the whole group he seems to adapt to his sword the least. With the Kubikiribocho he obviously has some powerful swings, but he has no skill with it and lacks the stamina to properly use it for a prolonged period.

    Buntan Kurosuki 

Buntan Kurosuki

Voiced by: Mariya Ise (JP), Carrie Keranen (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 28

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uub3zaog_400x400.jpg

Daughter of Raiga Kurosuki, the previous holder of Kiba. Seems to be in a relationship with, or is at least very close with Shizuma.


  • Abusive Parents: It's insinuated that Raiga was never really around as a husband, and we know from the anime that he was a bad dude who suffered a Karmic Death. Butan's mother is said to have a very unpleasant relationship with her daughter because of the grudge she holds towards Raiga for being a deadbeat, which has driven Buntan to turn renegade.
  • Dark Action Girl: To her credit, she actually appears to be decent in using her sword, unlike most of the group, and gives a decent fight on her own.
  • Designated Girl Fight: With Sarada during the Field Trip arc.
  • Dual Wielding: Wields Kiba, which is actually two separate swords.
  • Like Father, Like Daughter: Follows in her father's footsteps by debuting in the anime.
  • Meaningful Name: As with the rest of the new seven swordsmen, her name comes from a kind of fruit, specifically the Pomelo (Buntan in Japanese).
  • Shock and Awe: As the current wielder of Kiba, she uses the twin swords' ability to generate lightning. However, she has an extra ability that lets her manipulate the swords through remote control.

Ichirōta Oniyuzu

Voiced by: Yō Tokinaga (JP), Chris Hackney (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 28

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_81.png

Current wielder of Shibuki, after they stole it. Seems to be the most level headed of the group.


  • BFS: Shibuki
  • Meaningful Name: As with the rest of the new seven swordsmen, his name comes from a fruit, a kind of citrus.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Literally the power of Shibuki, which is coated with an unlimited number of explosive paper tags.
  • Taking You with Me: He tries to use Shibuki to pull this off after Iwabee defeats him, but fails thanks to Chōjūrō.

    Kyohō Fuefuki 

Kyohō Fuefuki

Voiced by: Yasuhiro Mamiya (JP), Mick Wingert (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 28

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_904.png

Resident big guy of the group. Wields the giant ax and hammer Kabutowari.


    Hebiichigo 

Hebiichigo

Voiced by: Nao Tōyama (JP), Erin Fitzgerald (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 28

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/341365.jpg

A creepy looking girl who comes into possession of the Nuibari when the group steals the swords.


  • Ax-Crazy
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Or at least as close to one as can be while still wearing a shinobi uniform.
  • Hates Being Touched: Despite her cruel and savage nature, she is also shown to have a strong sense of self-preservation, desperately working to avoid any physical contact with her enemy.
  • Meaningful Name: As with the rest of the new seven swordsmen, her name comes from a fruit, specifically a strawberry-like fruit called "hebiichigo".
  • Only One Name: Is the only one of her group to not have a surname.

Byakuya Gang

    Ryōgi 

Ryōgi

Voiced by: Yuusuke Kobayashi (JP), Johnny Yong Bosch (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 43


  • False Memories: Gekkō used genjutsu to make Ryogi believe someone else killed his parents when it was really Ryogi himself who did the deed.
  • Freudian Excuse: After his parents were murdered by an enemy of his father, Ryōgi decided to follow in his father's footsteps and join Byakuya to help others.
  • An Ice Person: Courtesy of his kekkei genkai/bloodline limit: Ice Release.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: He's entirely convinced that the Byakuya Gang is stealing to help the impoverished, and as such does the same. We see he even steals a jewel from the Leaf so a neighboring town can afford to fix their water pump.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: He slips up and mentions Katasuke's research lab in a conversation. Shikadai notes that no normal person should be able to have an idea about what's in the lab...unless, of course, they scoped it out beforehand.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Although him being under a genjutsu since a tender age puts the his level of malevolency in question.
  • Odd Friendship: With Shikadai, considering that they're on opposite sides of the Byakuya conflict but still hung out with each other in secret.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Or shogi, as per the usual in this series. He serves as the brains of Byakuya's heists, and has some well flexed strategic abilities.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Gekkō who saved him from the past.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Gekkō has been using him for his own selfish desires because of his talent in Ice-based techniques.

    Gekkō 

Gekkō

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (JP), D.C. Douglas (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 43


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first, he seems to be a well-intentioned thief who treats Ryōgi and his other subordinates well. He's really a greedy scumbag who has no care for his subordinates. He kills the minion operating the getaway train for him and abandons Ryōgi to be captured by the Leaf, all so he can get away with Katasuke's scientific ninja tool, sell it, and monopolize the profits.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He is behind the deaths of Ryōgi's parents, and manipulated the boy to have access to his Ice Release.
  • Master of Illusion: He can use cursed seals or mirrors to place others under genjutsu.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: He claims to be a noble thief who has to steal from the rich and powerful because society won't help the poor. While he does let Ryōgi distribute their loot to the poor, this is just to keep up a facade to make the latter more compliant. In reality, he's motivated only by his own greed and plans to live in luxury after a big enough heist.
  • Parental Substitute: Serves as this to Ryōgi since both of the latter's parents are dead and he was a family friend.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Like Haido and Shinnō from the movies, Gekkō plays the role of the savior of a youth with unique powers when in reality he is the one who killed the youth's parents.

Fabrications

    As A Whole 
An experimental unit of synthetic lifeforms created by Ohnoki using a combination of his DNA and that of a White Zetsu to replace traditional Shinobi, beginning in the Hidden Earth Village.
  • Artificial Human: All of them.
  • Billy Needs an Organ: They require a heart to be integrated into their artificial bodies in order to halt their decay and be fully effective.
  • Clone Army: The beginnings of one at least. It is the ultimate goal of their creators so that they no longer require traditional shinobi military forces.
  • Cloning Blues: If there's a problem with cloning, they've got it. Justified in that the process by which their made is both highly experimental and of dubious origin.
  • Cloning Body Parts: What they are hoping to achieve in order to remain alive as the alternative is... messy, to say the least.
  • Clone Degeneration: The fatal flaw in their design. They don't live long, to begin with, and the more they exert themselves, the less time they have. This can be delayed, but lacking an aforementioned transplant, it can't be stopped.
  • Expendable Clone: This was the idea behind their creation, disposable forces to fight in place of actual people. Unfortunately...
  • Clones Are People, Too: While the Akuta shock troops are more animalistic than anything else, the Fabrications are clearly self-aware, displaying unique personalities. Furthermore, while they follow their defined purpose, it is clear that they are following the letter of the law rather than the spirit, and they quickly take it way too far.
  • Empty Shell: What their creators, or at least Ohnoki believes them to be, with any personality being dismissed as just a really good imitation. In a more literal sense, they are born without a heart, which is what limits their lifespan.
  • Golem: As is befitting of their place of origin, they are certainly intended to bring this aesthetic across. When they begin to degenerate, they crack and break apart, like clay that has dried out. The regeneration process has them immersed in liquid, revitalizing them, but unable to restore what has crumbled away. Likewise, their central dilemma of whether or not they truly have souls and wills of their own is also very much in this vein.
  • Modified Clone: Each is implanted with a different ability, granting them unique properties.
  • Reduced to Dust: When they die, they crumble away.
  • Tragic Monster: All the fabrications ever wanted was to know what humanity feels like and how to become humans. The problem is that they killed humans to steal they hearts. The tried to implant the organs into themselves in order to achieve this otherwise noble goal.

    Lord Ku 

Ku

Voiced by: Subaru Kimura (JP), Chris Hackney (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 78

Leader of the Fabrications. He is a direct clone of Ohnoki fused with White Zetsu DNA.


  • And Show It to You: Does this to the Iwa Doctor. Takes it a step further when he implants it in himself after doing so.
  • Arc Villain: Ku serves as this for the Mitsuki Disappearance Arc.
  • Body Horror: Ku's method of implanting himself with a human heart is... unconventional.
  • Foreshadowing: The clone of a great ninja hero who inherited their abilities and looks up to them in a warped way. Oh. And his name begins with a K.
  • Like a Son to Me: He refers to Ohnoki as father on several occasions. This feeling clearly lessens as the two diverge on the implementation of their goals.
  • Organ Theft: Both Ku's ultimate plan to stabilize the Fabrications and what he ultimately personally performs in order to stay alive.
  • Shoot the Messenger: When he's informed that their prisoners have escaped and thus they don't have a heart to transplant into him, Ku proceeds to perform a very forceful one on the man who tells him.

    Kokuyo 

Kokuyo

Voiced by: Masashi Tamaki (JP), Mick Wingert (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 78

One of the four Fabrications below Ku, serving as one of the field commanders. Unlike the others, he possesses no known special abilities.


  • Badass Normal: Compared to his fellow fabrications, he has no special abilities. What he does have is strength, endurance, and an iron will.
  • The Dragon: While he doesn't technically outrank the other three Fabrications, his role in the anime defaults to this, as he serves as a capable leader in his own right whom the others respect and listen to, making him Ku's unofficial right hand man.
  • Properly Paranoid: Doesn't trust Mitsuki for an instant. Even after all Mitsuki does to help them, he remains convinced its some kind of ploy. Sure enough...
  • The Stoic: Keeps a calm and professional focus throughout most of his appearances.
  • Sergeant Rock: Despite his cold demeanor, he cares deeply for his fellow Farbications, and when Sekiei shows signs of deterioration in the field, he redoubles his efforts to save him.

    Sekiei 

Sekiei

Voiced by: Takehiro Urao (JP), Lucien Dodge (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 72

One of the four Fabrications below Ku. He is the most jovial of the group and uses explosive clay.


  • Beware the Silly Ones: A jovial and friendly Fabrication who likes to poke fun at his fellows. He's also a sadist who delighted at the chance to kill Team 7 when they came after Mitsuki.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: In a sense. Sekiei trusts Mitsuki off the bat because he is a synthetic lifeform just the same as he is and he wants to make a friend, while Kokuyo and the others are more reasonably concerned by Mitsuki's apparent willingness to abandon his allies. While Mitsuki does give him pause a couple of times, Sekiei is always reassured with relative ease. Come the moment of truth, and Sekiei does not take it well. Subverted slightly in that Mitsuki did actually like Sekiei, and the betrayal was no easier for him.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Type B. He desperately wants to emotionally connect with others and live a life with his "family" and make friends, something Mitsuki reluctantly exploits to gain intel on the emerging threat of the Fabrications.
  • Ironic Death: In the end, after collapsing from exhaustion and soon to die, he realizes that Mitsuki actually did see him as a friend. He tries to offer one last gesture of that friendship, but he crumbles to dust before Mitsuki can reciprocate.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Mitsuki shows where his loyalties are and have always been with, the Hidden Leaf Village, Sekiei goes insane. He exhausts all his energy in a desperate fury hoping to kill Mitsuki for his betrayal and eventually ends up dying as a result.

    Kirara 

Kirara

One of the four Fabrications below Ku and the only female.


  • Berserk Button: Ugly things, or worse, being called ugly.
  • The Dark Chick: Definitely qualifies.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Anyone who looks into her eyes is subject to her illusory powers.
  • People Puppets: Her favored method of controlling people.
  • Sadist: She expresses enjoyment at watching two close friends try to kill each other at her command.
  • Trophy Room: Her room is full of "pretty things" she has collected. Shoes, purses, fine clothes, those sorts of things.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: She seems to latch onto this idea as a part of her identity as she is extremely concerned about her appearance.
  • Villainous Fashion Sense: Always dresses for the occasion and loves to look pretty.

    Kako 

Kako

Voiced by: Ryota Asari (JP), Keith Silverstein (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 78

One of the four Fabrications below Ku. Has access to his progenitor's trademark ability.


  • Blood Knight: Kako literally lives for a good fight.
  • The Brute: Serves in this function for the Fabrications.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: When engaged in battle, he loves to experience the life and death struggle, enjoying receiving pain as much as he enjoys dishing it out.
  • Ironic Death: His love for battle burns out the energy sustaining him. As he's preparing his final attack, the well runs dry, and he dies.
  • Wicked Cultured: In his spare time, he reads books on human interaction and psychology, finding it fascinating. If he read further into those texts, he may find that he is classified as a psychotic.

Iwa Doctor

Voiced by: Tomohisa Aso (JP), Kyle Hebert (EN)

Debut: Boruto Episode 78

A mysterious scientist who provides the materials and technical know-how to create the Fabrications.


  • Evil Genius: An extremely intelligent man who spends most of his time conducting human experimentation in an underground lab for nefarious purposes. Oh. And he's wearing a monocle while doing so. What more needs to be said?
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Provides the material and technical know-how necessary to create the Fabrications. Without him, they would never have been successful. Given he was an Outer for Kara, this makes sense.
  • Killed Off for Real: He finally meets his permanent end when the false Divine Tree gobbles him up as Victor and his secretary watch.
  • Mad Scientist: And proud of it considering he unashamedly looks like a cross between Albert Einstein and Fritz Lang.
  • No Name Given: We never hear a name for him given.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Man had his heart ripped out of chest by Ku, yet is seen alive and well nearly a hundred episodes after his body disappeared. It is believed Kara revived him, but how they did so isn't clear. The Tsuchikage is appropriately shocked by the news.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Strangely, for a character who gets a disproportionate amount of focus, almost nothing is known about who he is at the time of his death.

Mujina Bandits

    Shojoji 

Shojoji

Voiced by: Naomi Kusumi

Debut: Boruto Chapter 11 (Manga), Boruto Episode 147 (Anime)

Leader of the Mujina Gang, a group of common thieves who evolve into a terrorist organization when they take the heir to the Land of Fire hostage. Shojoji intends to cause an international crisis and chaos so he can quietly seize power.


  • Acrofatic: Despite his obesity, he can Speed Blitz Boruto.
  • Adaptation Expansion: In the anime, he is the mastermind behind the attempts on Kokuri's life (and also the one who manages to kill him), which adds a more personal element to his fight with Boruto. And later on, Kakashi releases him from prison temporarily so Boruto can use him to test his new Rasengan in combat.
  • Brain Food: How his powers works. He must eat the live brain of a shinobi to be able to copy his techniques and appearance.
  • Counter-Attack: His Wind of the Count Shield works like this. It returns techniques to their user.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Expected all of Boruto's attacks and countered them. He only gets hit when Tentou attacks him, not expecting him to know how to throw a Shuriken.
  • Extreme Omnivore: The "Can Eat Anything" variety. There's nothing he won't eat, including his own kind. He also reasons that humans could adapt to eat whatever they want and most just chose not to eat people, which is really disturbing. And to accommodate his appetite, Shojoji can open his jaw VERY wide to engulf his meals.
  • Fat Bastard: His true form is that of a fat ugly man.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: His cannibalistic jutsu is bad enough, but what makes him truly repulsive is he enjoys eating people.
  • Kill and Replace: While most shinobi can do this with the transformation technique, Shojoji takes it a step further by gaining the memories of the people he eats, allowing him to make his disguises near-perfect.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Isn't impressed at all by Sai & Ibiki. Starts really getting scared when Sasuke comes to talk to him personally.
    • The moment he saw the members of Kara, he knew they were dangerous and bolted immediately.
  • Razor-Sharp Hand: His Sword of the Wind Count jutsu functions as a chop that can slice through enemies like a sword.
  • The Chessmaster: Don't be fooled: beneath that big, gluttonous veneer lies a dangerously good strategist, with ruthlessness to boot. The anime expands on this in the Hozuki Castle arc. First, he kills and eats his second-in-command, Tsukiyo, in order to weed out any traitors that are imprisoned at Hozuki while also concealing his true identity. He runs into Kokuri, a former member of his gang who could spill the beans at any moment, and attempts to kill him in Tsukiyo's form. When this fails, he makes a deal with the warden and tries to have Kokuri transferred to another prison where he would be killed by other Mujina prisoners. Team 7, who happened to be operating undercover as prisoners, help Kokuri break out with them, forcing Shojoji to kill the warden and pursue them, where he is able to once more try and kill Kokuri along with the genin. He loses the fight with the genin, but is able to drag Kokuri into the ocean below and consume him, which forced him to reveal the nature of his Corpse Clone jutsu to interrogators, but also enabled him to go back into hiding and enact his next plan: a power play to seize control of the Land of Fire through his impersonation of the Feudal Lord. That plan would have succeeded if Boruto had not interfered.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Would have gladly made dinner out of both Tentou and Boruto were it not for Sarada and Mitsuki's timely intervention.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has green hair.

    Tsukiyo 

Tsukiyo

Voiced by: Masanori Takeda (JP)

Debut: Boruto Episode 141

Second in command of the Mujina Gang, who was captured and imprisoned in Hozuki Castle.


  • Casting a Shadow: Similar to Shikamaru, Tsukiyo can utilize shadows in a variety of ways, most notably creating hard copies of their casters which can utilize their full range of techniques, making them dangerous opponents.
  • Lunacy: His shadow powers specifically require moonlight.
  • Punishment Box: He's a sequestered prisoner. Warden has him spending his days there as he's too dangerous to leave around the others.
  • Shock and Awe: His other main specialty, which he uses to stop a man's heart at point blank range.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Tsukiyo is eaten and impersonated by Shojoji prior to Team 7's first encounter with him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Like his boss he has green hair.

    Arai 

Arai

Voiced by: Ryoka Yuzuki (JP)

Debut: Boruto Episode 141

A prisoner at Hozuki Castle and secretly a member of the Mujina Gang.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Arai is by far and away the most forthcoming and friendly of the prisoners Boruto and Mitsuki share a cell with. Naturally, he's a self-serving duplicitous asshole.
  • Put on a Bus: He's taken away after his second attempt on Kokuri's life fails. What ultimately became of him afterward is unknown.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sports bright red hair.

Land of Rivers

    Tosaka 

Tosaka

Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu

Debut: Boruto Episode 98

An ornithologist assigned to be protected by Team 7 and Team 15, originally sent to study the strange behavior of the wild geese in the area. But it turns out that he has a sinister motive.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He initially projected a nice but socially awkward persona, this in order to make Boruto and the rest of his friends not suspect him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He tries to pit his own curse mark of his body against a fully transformed Juugo to prove his superiority. Juugo destroys him in less than a minute.
  • Mad Scientist: His true interest is in Juugo's curse mark, and he has been experimenting on ways to infect more organisms with it.
  • Tempting Fate: He gloats to be a better scientist than Orochimaru, a guy who spent years studying the curse mark and even admitted that Juugo's was way more powerful than his'. This pride causes his downfall.

Haze Quadruplets

    As a whole 
A group of siblings from the Land of Haze operating in the anarchic Land of Silence, hoping to secure the stolen Hashirama Cell to safeguard their nation.
  • Blood Brothers: They made a pact to serve the Land of Haze, who took them in when they were young, and to die in their service.
    • They also promised to one another that when one of them died, the others would bury their earrings beneath the peach tree behind the orphanage where they grew up.
  • Coordinated Clothes: All of the Quadruplets wear the same outfit, but most importantly, they wear the same earring on the same ear, signaling their allegiance to one another.
  • Genderbender: When we first meet them, they are working undercover as courtesans known as "The Ladies" at a bar in the Land of Silence, trying to gather information. Only after Boruto interferes with his own transformation jutsu do we discover that "The Ladies" are in fact, gentlemen.
  • Orphanage of Love: They describe their old orphanage this way.
  • Raised by the Community: Implied. They don't dwell much on the specifics, but from the sound of things, the Land of Haze collectively adopted them, hence their extreme loyalty.
  • Sibling Team: Naturally.
  • Siblings in Crime: They frame the Hidden Leaf for murder while making off with the DNA of the Hidden Leaf's founder.
  • Suicide Attack: Each has one unique to them to be utilized for different purposes.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Each sport a different shade of pinkish purple.

    Asaka 

Asaka

Voiced by: Yusuke Hoshino (JP, male), Sara Matsumoto (JP, female)

Debut: Boruto Episode 160

Leader and by extension the oldest of the Haze Quadruplets.


  • Aloof Big Brother: He acts like this in the field as a form of professional detachment in order to accomplish their mission. However, this does not mean he does not care about his siblings. Quite the opposite in fact.
  • Big Brother Mentor: He's the team leader on a team consisting entirely of his brothers, so this kind of comes with the job.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He will not take kindly to anyone who dares to try and disgrace his brothers.
  • Taking You with Me: Recognizing that they will all die and the Hashirama Cell will be taken by Kara, he proceeds to use his own suicidal technique, self-destructing in a burst of energy from the underworld. Unfortunately, it doesn't so much as faze Deepa, much less hurt him. All it does is annoy him.
    Deepa: Damn it! That was dangerous! What if the Hashirama Cell had been destroyed?!
