Team Info
Team Jutsu

The Demon Brothers, Gōzu and Meizu, are two chūnin missing-nin introduced during Prologue — Land of Waves. They were Kirigakure shinobi and assisted Zabuza Momochi in defecting from the village. They subsequently worked with Zabuza in assassinations to earn enough funds for a second attempt at the Mizukage's life.

The brothers are a paragon of coordinated attacking. Their large metal gauntlets (Gōzu wears the gauntlet on his right hand while Meizu wears his on his left) house a retractable shuriken-styled chain running between the two of them, which they can use to bind an enemy and then slice them to pieces. In the event that the shuriken chain is neutralised, they also have a release mechanism, to free them up for individual attacks. They use the sharp, poisoned claws on their gauntlets to shred their opponents.
