|Team||Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist|
Ameyuri was relatively short in comparison with the other members of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist. She had long, red hair, and together with a forehead protector, she also wore a simple cloth around her head, distinctively tied at both sides so as the ends of the material protrude upwards, while the remainder of hair is allowed to flow downwards. She wore a loose, pin-striped long-sleeved shirt with a dark obi around the waist, black pants which got much looser near the ends, resembling hakama, and striped leg-warmers. Like all the other members of her generation of swordsmen, she wore bandages loosely tied around the neck.
As one of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, Ameyuri was one of the most powerful shinobi produced within Kirigakure. Her generation of swordsmen was even noted to be the strongest in the village's history. She was also capable of using Silent Killing, as seen when fighting the Third Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces while under the effect of Zabuza Momochi's Hiding in Mist Technique.
Ameyuri was very skilled at utilising the Kiba, twin swords imbued with lightning, which are claimed to be the sharpest swords ever made, having the ability to cut through anything, by apparently functioning in a similar manner to Lightning Release-based chakra flow which she wielded with great dexterity. In the anime, it was shown that Ameyuri uses the Kiba in combination with agile spinning movements, sweeping through her targets while rotating around herself, hitting all enemies around her.
Shinobi World War Arc
Amidst the battle with the Third Division the reincarnated previous generation of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist are summoned by Pakura and Gari, under Kabuto Yakushi's instruction, with the intention of overwhelming the opposition. Amongst their number was Ameyuri, who after being futilely bombarded by various techniques and weapons, retrieved Kiba from within a scroll in Mangetsu Hōzuki's possession. Entering the fray whilst concealed by a thick mist, Ameyuri began a silent massacre, masterfully dispatching several shinobi as electricity crackled around the blades. With Zabuza Momochi's defeat, the mist cleared exposing Ameyuri to the enemy. By the time Kakashi Hatake and Might Guy departed for Naruto Uzumaki's location the following day, she had been sealed by the Third Division.
Later, with the release of the Impure World Reincarnation technique, Ameyuri's soul was returned to the afterlife.
- Ameyuri (雨由利) roughly means "beneficial rain", and Ringo (林檎) means "apple"; like all members of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen, the surname is derived from a type of produce.
- As of Naruto Shippuden Episode 289, it has been confirmed that Ameyuri is indeed female, making her the only known swordswoman of the seven.
- In the anime, there is no distinction between the cloth in her hair, and her actual hair colour.
