    Mizuki 
A local crime kingpin in Konoha Town, who ruled much of the area with an iron fist by claiming he was a member of the Kyuushingai. Then Naruto, an actual Kyuushingai, showed up...
  • All Bikers Are Hells Angels
  • Badass Biker
  • The Brute: To the titular group during the Kira-Killers Arc in the Gaiden chapters.
  • Chain Pain: His Weapon of Choice for melee combat is a heavy chain, useful for choking opponents or as an impromptu whip.
  • Cop Killer: He was able to keep up the impression that he was a Kyuushingai by being this.
  • Gun Nut: During the Kira-Killers Arc, on being shown a whole warehouse's worth of guns that he'll get to pick, choose and refuse from, his response is to literally bow down before the benefactor and say, in a sincerely humble voice, "I am not worthy."
  • Starter Villain: He's the very first antagonist Naruto faces, just like he was in the canon series.
  • Token Motivational Nemesis: Besides being the Starter Villain, Mizuki was both antagonizing Ino's family and pretending to be a Kyuushingai, two things Naruto had to swiftly deal with in order to bring peace back to Konoha Town during his first few days there. Mizuki would return in a later arc to get revenge.
  • Villainous Friendship: Gets along pretty well with the rest of the Kira-Killers.

    Dosu, Zaku and Kin 
Three recurring members of Mizuki's gang.

    Rokusho Aoi 
A senior student and, when first introduced, the head of Konoha High's Hall Monitors Guild. After being exposed as an abusive gangster, he got stripped of his Hall Monitor position and was summarily expelled from school. He has since gone on to be a recurring thorn in Naruto's side.
  • Ascended Extra: He was a filler villain in Part 1 of the canon series. Here, he's a major supporting character.
  • Asshole Victim: Considering the atrocities he pulls from his first moment in the story, one doesn't feel too sorry for him when he winds up becoming a Butt-Monkey or even when he's beaten to death by Yagura in Chapter 136.
  • The Bully: While he was enrolled at Konoha High, and even after being expelled. He also heads a Gang of Bullies comprising the members of Konoha High's Hall Monitors Guild.
  • Butt-Monkey: For all the vile stuff he does, he's had quite a run of rotten luck to accompany his evil track record. He's subjected to quite a few curb-stompings throughout his appearances. He's only ever been in one fight that he actually won, and even then he got subject to a Curb-Stomp Battle shortly afterward in revenge for the outcome of that fight. He had his advances on a woman publicly rejected. And then on one occasion a bird rested on top of his head.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He tries a lame pick-up line on a woman in Chapter 4, who not only brushes him off by saying she already has a boyfriend, but also threatens to call the police if he doesn't leave her alone. Aoi doesn't take the rejection well.
    Aoi: I'm the chief of hall monitors at Konoha High! And what I want, I will have!
  • Drunk with Power: When he was leader of the Hall Monitors Guild.
  • Knife Nut: On two occasions he's brought a knife into combat against his opponents...problem is, those opponents were Naruto and Itachi.
  • Social Darwinist: Aoi believes that the strong have every right to rule over the weak. When he was the chief hall monitor at Konoha High School, he would use this to justify being The Bully to weaker students. Unfortunately for him, he's forced to be on the receiving end of his own philosophy when Naruto utterly trounces him in Chapter 5 and when Shikamaru fells him with one punch in Chapter 27.
  • Straw Misogynist: Exceptionally so.
  • Teeny Weenie: During a nasty beat-down from Sai while thwarting Aoi's attempt to rape Ino, Aoi gets a painful crotch-squeeze which reveals he's got...shortcomings.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Especially if they reject his advances or defy his say-so.
  • Would Hurt a Child: His Establishing Character Moment in Chapter 4 has him forcing Udon (here a first-year high school student) to publicly kiss his feet, and then using his foot to kick Udon aside, all because the kid accidentally bumped into him.

    The Hall Monitors Guild 
A gang of senior boys from Konoha High School, primarily led by Rokusho Aoi, though they've also acted on their own initiative independent of him at different points in the story. Five of them—Yoshida Sanjiro, Bunzo, Yudachi, Urushi, and Saisu—get special focus in the fifteenth Gaiden, and Sanjiro eventually takes over leadership of the group.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In canon, Bunzo was one of the members of the original incarnation of Akatsuki under the leadership of Nagato, Yahiko and Konan; and Urushi was a member of the Allied Shinobi Forces.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Yudachi has a scar on his right cheek, and he's definitely not a good guy.
  • Hired Guns: They serve this purpose in the fifteenth Gaiden. In all other appearances, they're Aoi's henchmen.
  • Kill It with Fire: In the fifteenth Gaiden, they try to do this to Naruto and Kushina with a plan to burn down the Uzumaki house with the two would-be victims inside while they're asleep. Unfortunately for them, Minato almost turns it around on them.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Sanjiro wasn't named in canon (he was the green-haired ninja who would later be used as the basis for Pain's first Animal Path). Bunzo was likewise unnamed in canon.
  • Straw Misogynist: Following in Aoi's footsteps.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sanjiro has green hair.

    The Blood Mist Gang 
A group of hoodlums led by the Kyuushingai member Yagura, they show up to attack Naruto and his friends in Chapters 40 and 41. Their members consist of Munashi Jinpachi, Akebino Jinin, Ringo Ameyuri, Momochi Zabuza, Kuriarare Kushimaru, Kurosuki Raiga, and Suikazan Fuguki.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Played straight with Zabuza, as while he was an antagonist to Naruto and the rest of Team 7 during the Land of Waves arc, he really wasn't such a bad guy after all and in fact pulled a Redemption Equals Death to cut down Gato, the arc's Big Bad. Averted with Raiga, who was the main villain of his anime-only arc. The rest of the group may probably play it straight, if you note that their canon selves were already dead prior to the series' main timeline and might only have been antagonists by virtue of being shinobi attached to the Hidden Mist Village, where they're heralded as heroes and which even then is headed by a Mizukage who's not such a bad person—that and the fact that we don't really know that much about them anyway.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Somewhat; while they're certainly shown to be competent fighters in this fanfic, in the canon series they were counted among the best swordsmen of the Hidden Mist Village and the world's shinobi in general. Of particular note is Zabuza, who in canon was able to fight Kakashi to a standstill, and also Raiga, who was a filler-arc main villain in the anime.
  • All Bikers Are Hells Angels
  • Badass Beard: Jinin.
  • Batter Up!: Among the various weapons used by the gang members during the fight with Naruto's group in Chapter 41, Fuguki wields a baseball bat.
  • Cool Mask: Kushimaru wears a porcelain mask over his face, much like his canon counterpart.
  • Fiery Redhead: Ameyuri.
  • Gangbangers
  • Handicapped Badass: During the brawl, Raiga gets one arm broken at the shoulder by Sai, but he's still able to wrestle Sai to the ground and get in a few hits with his good arm.
  • Just Shoot Him: Ameyuri's solution when Naruto has Zabuza at knife-point is to pull out a pistol and prepare to blow him away. Ino stops her in time with a well-placed kick between the legs.
  • Knife Nut: The gang members are all adept at knife usage, among other gang-related weapons.
  • Mighty Glacier: Fuguki, who's the biggest member of the gang, manages to briefly incapacitate Naruto by barreling into him and then sitting on his back, pressing the blond boy down with his weight.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Ameyuri is the gang's only female member.
  • Spared by the Adaptation
  • White Mask of Doom: Kushimaru.
  • Would Hit a Girl: The men in the gang don't spare Sakura, Ino or Hinata just because they're chicks. In particular, Jinpachi corners Ino and gives her a nasty beat-down, and Zabuza's response to Hinata's frantic efforts to make him release Neji from a painful arm-twisting is to use his free arm to elbow her in the face, knocking her senseless as a result.

    Mitokado Homura 
A disgraced former employee of Hyuga Corp, who was fired by Hiashi after he failed to give a proper account of funds that had been entrusted to him while Hiashi was gone on a business trip. He joins forces with Akatsuki to get revenge.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Of a sort; in the original canon, he was one of Konoha's village elders who clashed often with Tsunade on differing opinions of how to treat Naruto, and who tried to keep Naruto restrained within the bounds of the village and not let him be allowed to do anything at all, ostensibly as a means of protecting him from Akatsuki, though they don't seem to have it out for him directly. The author admits that he made Homura a straight villain in this story simply because he didn't like the man.
  • Big Fancy House: It's not as thoroughly described as the Hyuga or Uchiha mansions, but it's fancy enough to have an outdoor patio and balcony right outside his upstairs-level bedroom.
  • Dirty Old Man: Implied, as during one scene he's dreaming about being tended to by women young enough to be his daughters.
  • Evil Genius: As part of the titular group in the Kira-Killers Arc during the Gaiden chapters.
  • Evil Old Folks: ...he's not a nice person.
  • A Glass of Chianti: In one chapter, he's shown to drink a glass of brandy while contemplating the reward he expects to get for helping Akatsuki.
  • Last-Name Basis: He's frequently referred to by his surname, even in the narrative.
  • Man Behind the Man: He hires the remnants of the Hall Monitors' Guild to take a shot at Naruto's family in the fifteenth Gaiden.
  • Only in It for the Money: He takes part in Akatsuki's plot to kidnap Hanabi as bait to draw out Naruto only for the rich reward that's been promised to him if he helps them out.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: All he needs to do to convince a boatyard-operator to let him have a desired sea-vessel is to wave a few bills in the man's face, while adding that the money won't be tax-deductible.

    The Purple Storm Gang 
One of Konoha Town's most noteworthy gangs, led initially by Arashi and later by Karyu. They play a lead role during the Gold Sand Storm arc, though they also show up in standalone main-story chapters and also in the Gaiden chapters.

The gang in general

  • The Aggressive Drug Dealer: They're the first gang Aoi approaches to distribute Gold Sand, and they're quite on board with the idea.
  • Down in the Dumps: Their usual hangout is in the town junkyard.
  • Gang of Hats: Their particular "hat" is their signature jackets, colored purple with swirl-like designs on the shoulders.
  • Would Hit a Girl: During the Gaiden chapters, they threaten to get just as rough with Kurenai and Yumi as they intend to do with Genma.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In the Gaiden chapters, two of them come upon Hanabi and, recognizing her as a bystander who'd foiled a previous robbery attempt of theirs at a store in the main story, attack and rob her and destroy her lemonade stand. Fortunately for Hanabi, Naruto shows up just then and proceeds to kick their asses for it (and gives Hanabi a chance to kick them in the balls as revenge).

Arashi

A senior-year student who's also the leader of the Purple Storm gang during the main story. He's got a history with Haku, Suigetsu and Jugo, and his childhood buddies with Karyu.
  • Blackmail: Coerces Haku into becoming a drug pusher with the threat of removing his protection of Haku from the bullying he used to endure if he refuses.
  • The Bully: The second one seen at Konoha High, after Aoi.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair

Karyu

The new leader of the Purple Storm Gang after Arashi, introduced in the thirty-sixth Gaiden.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He and Nigai concoct a plan for three members of their combined gangs to kidnap Yumi, but upon being informed by them that Naruto and Yurika are in the vicinity, Karyu—rightly suspecting the gangsters won't last against a Kyuushingai and a cop who's likely armed—tells them to come back and that they'll try the kidnapping another time.

    Shiore 
The leader of Konoha Town's resident Hawks gang. He plays a major role during the Konoha Gangs arc.

    Kaguya Kimimaro 
The leader of the Crossbones Crew, and one of three gang leaders who Aoi approaches to enter Konoha Town's local Gold Sand trade during the Konoha Gangs arc, in exchange for doing a few favors for him.

    Furido Kazuma 
The boss of the Flame-heart Posse, and one of three gang leaders who Aoi approaches to enter Konoha Town's local Gold Sand trade during the Konoha Gangs arc, in exchange for doing a few favors for him.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Kazuma sports a scar over his face.
  • Mugging the Monster: the Flame-heart Posse attacks Chouji but gets defeated by him, Chouza, Suigetsu and Jugo; Kazuma directly gets the crap kicked out of him by Chouji.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Kazuma's canon-series counterpart was also known by the name Furido, which is used as his surname in this story.
  • Psycho for Hire: To Aoi.
  • Villains Out Shopping: For a certain value of "shopping," as in one Gaiden chapter Ibiki confronts him while he's securing the services of a prostitute.

    The Ice-Eyes Gang 
One of the gangs of Konoha Town, initially led by Kakuyoku Fubuki during the Konoha Gangs arc but showing up on their own initiative later in the Gaiden chapters. Fubuki, on their behalf, is one of three gang leaders who Aoi approaches to enter Konoha Town's local Gold Sand trade during the Konoha Gangs arc, in exchange for doing a few favors for him.

    Gama Jiraiya 
The permanent secretary in the Ministry of Justice, and a longtime friend of Mayor Tsunade and Lawyer Orochimaru. However, in a far cry from his canon counterpart, he has little to no sympathy for Naruto due to the latter's experience as a Kyuushingai.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Tribunal arc, given the measures he takes to ensure Naruto is brought before the titular tribunal, up to and including "convincing" Tsume to assist in doing so.
  • Black-and-White Morality: He does not believe that the Kyuushingai should get any leniency for what happened during the 365 days, not even if their members included people as benign as Naruto. He allows that it might be a bit hypocritical to say that when the government has Yugito in its employ, but he says that even that situation is simply an opportunity for Yugito to be The Atoner.
  • Dirty Old Man: Wouldn't be Jiraiya without him being this, if Naruto's assessment of his "palm-dates" is any indication.
  • Hypocrite: He wants to see the Kyuushingai prosecuted for their antics, yet he himself tried to cover up the truth behind Gaara's parents deaths—that they died from a missile strike accidentally launched by Jiraiya during a drunken tryst with a female ambassador—by claiming they were terrorism-supporters and weapons-smugglers. Incidentally, it was that move by Jiraiya and the government that actually led to the 365 days and the subsequent creation of LOVE, Akatsuki and Gold Sand (the latter two indirectly) in the first place, making Jiraiya a Greater-Scope Villain as well.
  • Knight Templar: During the Tribunal arc, he's determined that Naruto, and the rest of the Kyuushingai by extension, must be brought to justice for the crimes they've committed. Granted, the Nine Terrors really did spark/perpetrate chaos and destruction across the country, but for most of them, they were Mis-blamed for a lot of what happened, or they were just trying to survive during 365 days of hell; Jiraiya, however, doesn't see this as a valid excuse and will do anything he can to see that even the benign members like Naruto get the full brunt of the law, going as far as to threaten to withhold funds to repair Konoha Town's wrecked police station if Tsume and her officers don't cooperate with his thrust to bring Naruto in.
  • Named by the Adaptation: He doesn't have a surname in canon. His surname here comes from his canonical epithet, "Gama Sage" or "Toad Sage."
  • Porn Stash: According to Orochimaru, during his college years Jiraiya had enough porn magazines to fill a small library.

    Kira Ay 
The CEO of defense contractor Kira Enterprises, and also the brother of Kyuushingai member Kira Hachi (a.k.a. Killer Bee).
  • Adaptation Personality Change: In canon, Ay is loud and extremely aggressive (while still being mostly a good guy). Here, he's more quiet and composed, albeit not above using theatrics while giving speeches, as shown when he utilizes a helicopter to aid in his unveiling of his company's newest invention. There's an in-universe reason for this.
  • Adaptational Villainy: As explained on the main page, he's an adversary to Naruto by virtue of his grudge against the Kyuushingai; by contrast, his canon counterpart, while initially hostile, wasn't such a bad guy after all. His actual identity, Killer Bee, was one of Naruto's most steadfast allies in canon.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin: While he can keep it mostly under wraps, he's harboring deep-seated animosity toward the Kyuushingai because his brother Hachi died during the 365 days, leaving him as this. Except it was actually Ay who died, not Hachi.
  • Bad Boss: He threatens to throw his servants off the rooftop where he and Fuu are fighting, if any of them tries to interfere with his intended coup de grace against her. Then again, it's not the real Ay to begin with.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Especially given his actual identity.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Went looking for Hachi during the 365 days and masqueraded as him to save his life, at the cost of his own.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He shares dinner with Yugito, talks calmly with her and Naruto on other occasions, and is charming and polite to the Uchiha and Hyuga families during their scheduled corporation battle and to the Kyuushingai when they later appear at his island mansion in the final arc...but all of that is a mask to cover up his less-than-altruistic plans and vindictive nature.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Responsible to Hachi's Foolish.
  • Large and in Charge: As in canon, he's a big guy. He's also the CEO of his own company.
  • Lightning Bruiser: When made to fight.
  • Made of Iron: During his fight with Fuu at his island mansion, despite her fiercest blows, he's barely fazed.
  • Mr. Fanservice: One chapter opens with him waking up and doing his morning workout in his penthouse suite while shirtless.
  • Named by the Adaptation: In canon, the Raikage doesn't have a listed surname or even a proper name.
  • Related in the Adaptation: As explained in Killer Bee's entry above.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: On the surface, Kira's a billionaire CEO and a government-sanctioned defense contractor who thinks nothing of spending money to outfit the local security forces with new ballistic armor, and will permit photographs of such benevolent activities for the media's benefit; additionally, he makes no effort to hide that his company had a stake in the creation of the Kyuushingai, painting himself as a man who will at least take responsibility for the devastation that took place because of them. Away from the public eye, however, he makes it very plain in separate conversations with Naruto and Yugito that he hates the Kyuushingai (including the two of them, despite their being on the good guys' side), and that he bears a grudge against them due to what happened to his brother and is therefore decidedly not on their side. There's also the fact that he's the man behind both Utakata and Akatsuki, plus his publicly outing Naruto and Yugito as Kyuushingai would have put Hyuga Corp and the Uchiha Zaibatsu in a bad light as well were it not for Hinata chewing out the crowd.

    Hozuki Mangetsu 
Suigetsu's older brother, introduced at the start of the Underground Fists arc just when he's being released from prison after spending five years there for armed robbery. Despite his time behind bars, though, he hasn't quite renounced his criminal ways...
  • Adaptational Villainy: Kind of. He's certainly a criminal jackass in this story, but in canon he was one of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist and was likely closer to being a Noble Demon, as he was stated to be much more humble than his brother Suigetsu. Plus, there's the fact that the Seven Swordsmen are considered heroes in their native Hidden Mist Village.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Mangetsu does not have any fond feelings for his parents, but especially his father, to the point that he thinks nothing of shoving Gengetsu and making him fall (on a couch, luckily) when the older man attempts to discipline him. The fact that the family never once came to visit him while he was in prison has a lot to do with it.
  • Armed Blag: The reason he was in prison for five years.
  • Big Brother Bully: Mangetsu has shades of this toward Suigetsu.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Suigetsu's Abel.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Mangetsu thinks nothing of clubbing a kid in the head with a rock to steal said kid's dog, or of almost killing his own kid brother if his plans to make a quick buck for himself are threatened.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Mangetsu isn't afraid to pull this when Kushina confronts him in time to stop him from stomping Suigetsu to death.

    The Spiral Reaper 
The eponymous antagonist of the Spiral Reaper arc, who goes on a killing spree seemingly directed at faculty or students of Konoha High who have failed to live up to certain standards...
  • Composite Character: This individual has a mask like Tobi's first mask (only colored white instead of orange, reminiscent of the Zetsu clone bearing Tobi's likeness) and carries Hidan's scythe (with silver blades instead of red). His true identity is that of Yamato Tenzou.
  • Dark Is Evil: Except for the White Mask of Doom, the Reaper wears black clothing.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Surprises and knocks out Hotaru at one point and briefly considers killing her, but then decides against it because she's just doing her job as a cop (whereas the Reaper's other victims are considered by the killer to be legitimately guilty of sin and therefore deserving of death), plus killing a cop will attract too much heat.
  • Serial Killer: Well, a wannabe, according to Tsume. It's actually discussed by Naruto and the Ino-Shika-Cho trio whether the Spiral Reaper actually qualifies to be called this, since according to the definition of the trope, the killer doesn't have even the minimum body count and the time period is much too short.
  • Silent Antagonist: Except for the character's introductory chapter when first getting equipment and when getting arrested at the end of the arc, the Reaper never utters a single word out loud.
  • Sinister Scythe: With three silver blades.
  • Slasher Smile: The few times the Reaper's been shown unmasked, the individual has shown the occasional creepy grin.
  • Throwing Your Scythe Always Works: This is an option if the target is a bit of a distance away. Emiru found this out the hard way.
  • White Mask of Doom

    The Tiger Dragon Gang 
A gang based out of Sound City, whose services are frequently contracted by the LOVE syndicate. This folder includes trope-lists for individual members.

The gang as a whole

  • All Bikers Are Hells Angels
  • Badass Decay: An in-universe accusation. During his bid for leadership, Nigai claims that the gang has succumbed to this under Chi's leadership.
  • Gang of Hats: Their "hat" is their jackets, which have on the back the image of a dragon with tiger-like features.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: In their case, they're the Gangsters Who Don't Do Much Of Anything. To be more specific, aside from the occasional jobs they'll do for LOVE, they make a point of not committing crimes that could put them on the Sound City police's radar, like outright murder. It's this perceived softness that has Nigai becoming The Starscream.

Chi

The leader of the Tiger Dragon gang, introduced during the Spiral Reaper arc.
  • Affably Evil: He's certainly the most cordial gang leader we've seen to date.
  • Badass Biker
  • Hidden Depths: Before becoming a gang leader, his dream was to become a food critic. And he's got Supreme Chef skills to back up that goal.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: When Naruto stops just short of punching him in the throat and orders him to leave, Chi knows not to push his luck.
  • Named by the Adaptation: No, he's not an original character; he's actually C, one of the Raikage's bodyguards in canon. The author simply combined his name with the phonetic Japanese pronunciation of his name, "shi."
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Turns out he's a Supreme Chef, and will help out in the kitchen whenever he can.

Yukata

Chi's Number Two in the Tiger Dragon gang, and a former student of Konoha High School who left the institution on bad terms.
  • Call-Back: She's the subject of this. Way back in Chapter 4, Ino mentions that the Hall Monitors' Guild framed a girl for stealing a cell-phone because the girl in question had refused a date with one of their members. Guess who that girl turned out to be.
  • Clear My Name: When she's initially suspected for murder at the start of the Spiral Reaper arc, she makes a point of letting the Konoha Town detectives know she couldn't have done it. This trope then becomes the mission of the extended Tiger Dragon gang for the arc.
  • Daddy's Girl: She was apparently closer to her father than to her mother.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's got quite a few barbed insults to direct at her leader, Chi, and to anyone else who she's annoyed with.
    Yurika: How'd you end up here in the first place? The doctor said you were stabbed.
    Yukata: I cut myself while shaving my legs.
  • Delinquents
  • Disappeared Dad: He died when she was much younger.
  • Irony: She declares that she hates Konoha High School and doesn't see herself going back there, after what happened with her and the Hall Monitors' Guild. Guess where she ends up working as a teacher in the Distant Finale.
  • Parental Issues: She's got no love for her mother Yui, who she blames for not standing up for her when she was wrongly accused of theft by the Hall Monitors' Guild. It doesn't help that Yui refuses to own up to her mistake.

Nigai

Another member of the Tiger Dragons who seeks the gang's leadership position, he is introduced during the thirty-fifth Gaiden.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: How he gets the leadership position. It helps that he's far more ruthless than either Chi or Yukata.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Amply demonstrates that gang-fights aren't about fair play or honor, what with him using a switchblade to turn the tables against Yukata.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: Like his canon counterpart, he wears his hair in thick dreadlocks. He's also a brutal fighter who's not afraid to throw down with Naruto, a Kyuushingai.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Chi. Both of them are Tiger Dragons and both have led the gang, but whereas Chi is cautious, laid-back, and knows when to pick his battles, Nigai is headstrong, proactive, and dead-set on avenging himself and the gang on whoever he perceives as having wronged them. Nigai also derides Chi's leadership style for making the gang appear weak.
    Nigai: The Tiger Dragons used to be the baddest gang in Sound City, but ever since Chi took control, what's our record been? We've been reduced to acting like errand boys for a bunch of crazy loons, running from cops, even getting humiliated by a Kyuushingai! Is this what we're supposed to be all about? I say no!
  • Meaningful Name: As outlined on the Naruto Wiki page, Nigai's name means "bitter." Nigai is The Resenter toward Chi.
  • Pet the Dog: Upon wresting the leadership of the gang from Yukata, Nigai's first instruction is for some of the goons to take her to the hospital.
  • The Resenter: Despised how, in his view, Chi's leadership style watered down the Tiger Dragons' threat level in Sound City.
  • The Starscream: He had always opposed Chi's leadership of the Tiger Dragons, and opposed Yukata's appointment as interim leader by Chi. The thirty-fifth Gaiden opens with him challenging Yukata for the leadership position and successfully usurping it from her.

    Chief Kaiza 
The police chief of Whirl City's precinct, introduced during the Vengeance arc.
  • Inspector Javert: Has no trust toward the Kyuushingai due to the 365 days having badly affected Whirl City, and especially toward Naruto due to the latter's actions having caused damage to Uzushio High School's grounds post-365 days. In fact, he goes as far as to tell Tsume that, if Naruto causes even the slightest bit of trouble while in Whirl City, he'll "send him home in a cedar box."
  • Irrational Hatred: Of the misplaced variety, toward the Kyuushingai. Riots broke out in Whirl City due to the Nine Terrors' actions, and his wife was murdered during that period; the people responsible for the murder were caught not long afterward, but Kaiza still blames the Kyuushingai years later, even though they had nothing to do with that, and it's also why he's especially prejudiced against Naruto (the blond boy being a Karma Houdini in Kaiza's eyes following the events at Uzushio High School probably did not help).
  • Last-Name Basis: Kaiza is the character's surname in this universe (whereas in canon it's his given name).
  • The Lost Lenore: His wife was murdered near the end of the 365 days, when he and his police officers were fighting to keep a semblance of order in the midst of Whirl City's riots caused by the Kyuushingai panic. Although the perpetrators were caught not long afterward, Kaiza blames the Kyuushingai for his wife's death regardless.
  • Overprotective Dad: According to Hokuto.
  • Papa Wolf: Even after Hokuto told him to his face that she hated him hours before, the moment he learns she's in danger, he rushes off to rescue her.
  • Related in the Adaptation: He's Hokuto's father in this universe; in the original series, the two have nothing to do with each other (plus Hokuto is a filler character who's not in the manga).
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In canon, he was murdered by Gato during the backstory for the Land of Waves arc.

    Tsuchinoe 
A female ex-cop turned criminal who has an alliance with the Purple Storm gang, and acts briefly as their leader in Arashi's place.

    Tanzaku Susuki 
The marketing manager of the Bounti-Juice fruit juice company from Yu City.
  • Absurdly High-Stakes Game: She presents a challenge to Naruto that's basically a variation of Russian Roulette, only instead of a revolver with bullets, they're using six bottles of fruit juice on a turn-table, with one of the bottles containing a powerful drug. Don't worry, it's only sleeping powder.
  • Adaptational Villainy: She was a minor neutral character in canon.
  • Ascended Extra: Of a sort. In canon, she was one of two hostesses who entertained Jiraiya; in this story's universe, she was one of the gamblers present at Yura's evening get-together during the Underground Fists arc, but wasn't directly identified by name at that time.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Downplayed; while she's not shown to use unethical practices in her job, she does use resources from her job (samples of Bounti-Juice's newest drink flavors) as tools in her plot to get revenge on Naruto.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: During her encounter with Naruto in the seventeenth Gaiden, Susuki briefly attempts to tease him using her foot under the table, but when Naruto coolly informs her that he's seeing somebody (Hinata), Susuki is graceful enough to pull her foot back and apologize for it.
  • The Gambling Addict
  • Idle Rich: Considering that she was part of a crowd willing to gamble millions on Yura's games...
  • Named by the Adaptation: Her surname comes from the Tanzaku Quarters, the gambling house where she worked in canon.
  • Slipping a Mickey: She drugs a bottle of juice and gives it to Kushina to incapacitate redhead, prior to her encounter with Naruto. Fortunately, the drug in question is only sleeping powder.
  • Sore Loser: Naruto accuses her of being this. Susuki doesn't exactly dispute it.
  • The Vamp: Certainly has the looks and the attitude.

    Kagura Sana 
Konoha High School's head cheerleader and captain of the gymnastics club, introduced during the thirty-third Gaiden.
  • Adaptational Villainy: While her canon counterpart was certainly arrogant and sadistic, and while she and her teammates opposed Konoha, that was largely in the context of their participating in the villages' joint Chuunin exams. Here, she's downright malicious and petty.
  • Alpha Bitch: While her introduction paints her as a very popular person, it soon becomes apparent from her interactions with Ruka that she's actually this.
  • Boobs of Steel: Her boob-size is the first thing Naruto notices about her. She's also a pretty skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
  • The Bully: A female one, mainly toward Ruka.
  • The Cheerleader: The lead cheerleader, in fact.
  • Dance Battler: Justified by her gymnastics experience.
  • Knife Nut: She fights Naruto while armed with a switchblade during the thirty-third Gaiden.
  • Manipulative Bitch: During the forty-second and forty-third Gaidens, she blackmails Ruka into setting Naruto up to be attacked by Suigetsu, or else she'll release Ruka's deepest secret to the whole school (that she's got a part-time job, which is a violation of school rules).
  • Proud Beauty: She loves to soak up compliments about her beauty. Hence, she doesn't respond well when Ruka disses her age by calling her "Sana-baa-chan (Grandma Sana), early edition."
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Light violet, to be exact.
