Ensui Nara (奈良エンスイ, Nara Ensui) is a shinobi from Konohagakure's Nara clan.

Appearance Edit

Ensui has black hair which he ties into a short, high-top ponytail. He also has a goatee and dark-green markings underneath his eyes[2] — which gives him a somewhat lazy, or tired appearance. Attire-wise, he wears the standard outfit of the Konoha shinobi consisting of the standard flak jacket and uniform. He, however, doesn't wear the Alliance's forehead protector.

Abilities Edit

Ensui binds Jinin

Ensui using the Shadow Sewing Technique.

Ensui seems to be very skilled with his clan's secret techniques being able to use the Shadow Imitation Technique to different degrees where he could freely allow a person to move while under the effects of the technique without having to move himself. He is also capable of using the Shadow Sewing Technique.

Part II Edit

Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation Edit

Kakashi's strategy initiated

Kakashi's strategy, initiated.

Ensui was assigned to the Third Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces. His team-mate along with Santa Yamanaka were incorporated into Kakashi's battle strategy to take out a reincarnated Zabuza Momochi in order to lift the mist that obscured the battlefield. He used his Shadow Imitation Technique to merge his own shadow with Kakashi's while Santa took possession of their captain's body. He was supposed to then use Kakashi's shadow as an extension of the technique to stop Zabuza's movements and then hold him down once Kakashi's shadow had come into contact with Zabuza's in order for Maki to completely immobilise him. However, half way through the plan, Kakashi's attack was intercepted by Haku. After Zabuza cuts through Haku, Ensui told Santa that Kakashi only caught one enemy and immobilised Haku as he regenerated. When Kakashi successfully connected his shadow to Zabuza's, he immediately immobilised him as well.

In the anime, at the dawn of the second day of the war, Ensui assists Kakashi in restraining a bisected Jinin Akebino until Sai completed his sealing technique. Gari arrives to prevent Jinin's sealing and Rock Lee fights him off to defend the two. Debris from Gari's explosion injures Ensui and his hold on Jinin is released. After Sai successfully seals Jinin, Gari retreats and as Lee attempts to pursue, Ensui convinces him not to.[2]

Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Edit

After the entire Allied Shinobi Forces arrived to the main battlefield against the Ten-Tails, Ensui received some of Kurama's chakra from Naruto, and together with Shikamaru and some of his other clansmen, immobilised the Ten-Tails. Like the rest of the world, he was trapped in the Infinite Tsukuyomi, until it was dispelled by Naruto and Sasuke.

Trivia Edit

  • Ensui's name, when written with different kanji, has different meanings:
    • when written as 円錐, it means "cone".
    • when written as 塩水, it means "salt water".
