|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #347|
Daibutsu (大仏, Daibutsu) was a member of the original Akatsuki.
At some point in the past, Daibutsu joined the original Akatsuki. Some time later, Daibutsu teamed up with Kyūsuke to fight Tobi and Zetsu but to no avail. He was later killed after a failed attempt to try and defeat Tobi.
Daibutsu was a bald man with tanish-coloured eyes and large ears. He had thin eyes, wide lips, and a wart centred just above his eyes. Overall, his appearance bore resemblance to Buddha statues found on buildings throughout Amegakure.
Daibutsu is by all indications a quiet person, only nodding in response to what his leader Yahiko tells him.
- "Daibutsu", as his name is written, is a word to describe large Buddha statues.
