{{translation|'''Fukasaku'''|フカサク|Fukasaku}}, often referred to as {{translation|"Head"|頭|Kashira}} is an elder toad over eight hundred years old that resides on [[Mount Myōboku]]. As the heirs of the [[Great Toad Sage]], he and his wife [[Shima]] are revered as the {{translation|"[[Two Great Sage Toads]]"|二大仙蝦蟇|Nidaisengama}}.
== Personality ==
Fukasaku, like his wife Shima, is considered very wise and is greatly respected by all who know them well enough. In reality, he constantly bickers with Shima over small things when they should focus on the bigger picture, such as the fact that a battle will cause them to miss dinner.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 377, page 6</ref> They are still close, as Shima is heartbroken after Fukasaku is killed by [[Pain]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 435, pages 12, 16</ref>
Though Fukasaku remains serious in even the worst situation, but he and his wife will constantly find a reason to bicker with each other. He also has a tendency to call the Great Toad Sage, "senile" for constantly forgetting everything.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 378, page 11</ref>
Fukasaku and Shima both seem to like Naruto. Fukasaku met Naruto for the first time when he brought the news of [[Jiraiya]]'s death to [[Konoha]]. He found Naruto's nickname for Jiraiya ("''Pervy Sage''") to be both very fitting and very funny, but observed that Naruto, as he was, would not stand a chance against Pain, and offered to take Naruto away to learn [[senjutsu]] at [[Mount Myōboku]]. After what was (for Naruto) a confusing introduction to sensing natural energy and drawing it in to blend [[Chakra#Senjutsu Chakra|senjutsu chakra]], Fukasaku, in light of Naruto's rapid progress, believed that Naruto would surpass Jiraiya in power.
== Appearance ==
Fukasaku is a green toad with white hair styled in somewhat of a mohawk, very thick eyebrows and a small goatee. He has been seen wearing two capes: a high-collared one and a simpler version. On his back is a message that Jiraiya left before he died regarding [[Pain]] "the real one isn't among them", because it was burned into his flesh, it cannot be removed.
== Abilities ==
In battle, Fukasaku and Shima are extremely formidable. After Shima extends a serpent-like creature from her stomach to seek out the opponent, Fukasaku can quickly strike with his tongue. Both are capable of exerting powerful gusts of wind. Also, they are highly intelligent, as they quickly determined a weakness in the way Pain used his [[Rinnegan]].
==== Senjutsu ====
[[File:War of Words Decapitation.JPG|left|thumb|Fukasaku using the Fighting Tongue Slash.]]
Shima and Fukasaku are able to use [[senjutsu]]. Senjutsu is a specialised field of techniques that allows the user to sense and then gather the natural energy around a person and draw it inside them, then blending it with their own chakra to create senjutsu chakra. This natural energy-empowered state grants the practitioner a high amount of a type of chakra which is stronger than other types of chakra. Other benefits include an unnaturally high level of raw strength, incredible speed, and huge resistance to physical attacks. With it, he is able to raise a frog statue much heavier than himself, and even throw [[Gamabunta]] a long distance.
==== Genjutsu Skills ====
[[File:Toad Confrontation Singing.jpg|thumb|Fukasaku and Shima using the Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant.]]
Shima and Fukasaku are capable of using a very powerful genjutsu called [[Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant]]. This ability cancelled out Jiraiya's lack of aptitude for genjutsu, making their combination much stronger. However, this genjutsu takes time. Also, in order to use this technique, both Shima and Fukasaku must adjust their voices and [[Collaboration Techniques|harmonise with each other]] (something neither of them seems happy about doing). When finally applied, it attacks the opponent's sense of hearing, and will completely paralyse the target(s) body. It gives Shima and Fukasaku a sore throat afterwards, meaning it cannot be used repeatedly.
== Part II ==
=== Itachi Pursuit Arc ===
[[File:Dying Message.JPG|thumb|left|The encrypted message that Jiraiya left.]]
Jiraiya summoned Shima and Fukasaku during his fight with Pain to help him enter [[Sage Mode]]. In addition to sitting on his shoulders to provide him with natural energy, they gave him advice, and attacked Pain when necessary. Their combined efforts were enough to combat three of Pain's bodies on equal terms. Shima and Fukasaku then created a [[genjutsu]] that allowed them to kill the three bodies, but they were soon overwhelmed by the appearance of three more.
Knowing the battle was lost, Jiraiya had Shima take the [[First Animal Path (character)|Animal Path]] he had captured back to [[Konoha]]. While she did that, Fukasaku accompanied him during his final confrontation with Pain. When he discovered Pain's secret, he [[Finger Carving Seal|carved]] a message into Fukasaku's back, and sent him away before dying of his injuries.
=== Invasion of Pain Arc ===
Fukasaku informed Konoha and [[Naruto Uzumaki]] of Jiraiya's death, telling them what he could of Pain, and allowing them to photograph the message on his back. Knowing that Naruto wanted revenge, and that he was currently ill-prepared for a battle with Pain, Fukasaku took him to Mount Myōboku to teach him [[senjutsu]]. While Naruto practised tuning in with nature, Fukasaku beat him (and his [[shadow clone]]s) with a staff to keep him from taking in too much natural energy.
[[File:Attempt.png|thumb|Fukasaku attempts to fuse with Naruto.]]
Naruto rapidly progressed through the training stages, earning praise from Fukasaku for so quickly catching up to Jiraiya. Once Naruto attained Sage Mode, he taught him [[Frog Kata]]. After Naruto mastered the [[fighting style]], Fukasaku began the final step of trying to fuse with Naruto as he had done with Jiraiya, something that proved impossible because of the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox]] sealed within Naruto. Worried that all his training would go to waste, Naruto tried to find a way to achieve Sage Mode without Fukasaku.
[[File:Sage Art Frog Call.PNG|thumb|left|Fukasaku and Shima using the Sage Art: Frog Call.]]
While Naruto continued trying to find an alternative, Fukasaku was informed of [[Kōsuke]]'s death, indicating something was happening in Konoha. Shima, who was shopping near Konoha, also noticed that something was wrong in the village. She summoned Naruto, Fukasaku, [[Gamaken]], [[Gamabunta]], [[Gamakichi]], and [[Gamahiro]] to Konoha's centre moments after Pain destroyed the village. As Naruto engaged Pain, Shima and Fukasaku provided assistance, dealing with the [[Second Animal Path (character)|Animal Path's]] summons. They were amazed by his perfected [[Wind Release: Rasenshuriken]], something he had not shown them during his training, but were again forced to deal with the Animal Path.
Knowing that the Animal Path must be got rid of, Shima coated the area in a dust cloud while Fukasaku threw Gamabunta at the path, giving Naruto an opportunity to finish it off. Pain was soon left with only one body, and Shima and Fukasaku tried once again to use a genjutsu to defeat it. Pain killed Fukasaku and knocks Shima away before they had a chance. Their bodies were later found and Shima, once healed, wept for Fukasaku. When Pain was defeated, and subsequently chose to revive everyone he had killed, Fukasaku was brought back to life, to Shima's shock and surprise. Later, Shima and Fukasaku were both seen together, standing atop [[Gamakichi]]'s head and watching from a distance as the population of Konoha welcomed Naruto back.
=== Confining the Jinchūriki Arc ===
Fukasaku summoned Naruto again to Mount Myōboku from the Great Toad Sage's order. He is present during the conversation between the two. When Naruto had trouble swallowing [[Gerotora]] as part of their contract, Fukasaku kicked Gerotora to give him a boost. The elder toad then [[Reverse Summoning Technique|reverse-summoned]] Naruto back to [[Ramen Ichiraku]].
== Video Games ==
{{playable in}}
Fukasaku and Shima also appear in games where Jiraiya is using Sage Mode, such as ''[[Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3]]'' and ''[[Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2]]''.
== Trivia ==
* Fukasaku is one of the few named characters in Naruto to experience death and be brought back to life. The others to have experienced this are [[Gaara]], [[Kakashi Hatake]], and [[Shizune]], although there were many victims of Pain's wrath on Konoha that were brought back to life by [[Nagato]].
* Fukasaku's name comes from the legendary film-maker [[Wikipedia:Kinji Fukasaku|Kinji Fukasaku]], best known for the WWII film [[Wikipedia:Tora! Tora! Tora!|''Tora! Tora! Tora!'']] and the ground-breaking yakuza film {{translation|''[[Wikipedia:Battles Without Honour and Humanity|Battles Without Honour and Humanity]]''|仁義なき戦い|Jingi Naki Tatakai}}. The latter film starred the famous actor [[Wikipedia:Bunta Sugawara|Bunta Sugawara]], who gave [[Gamabunta]] his name.
* In the anime, he stated that his favourite food is [[Wikipedia:Onigiri|onigiri]] made from larvae.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 156</ref>
