Gaku Inuzuka (犬塚ガク, Inuzuka Gaku) is a jōnin from Konohagakure's Inuzuka clan.

Background

Minato squad

Gaku, his ninken and their team confront the Kumo-nin.

Gaku, his ninken, Dōtō Akimichi and a fourth shinobi were part of a team which was led by Minato Namikaze during a conflict with Kumogakure. In his team, Gaku was responsible for short-range combat.[1] In one of the battles, his team clashed with Kumogakure's A–B Combo. During Minato's fight with A and Killer B, Gaku expressed his shock over the latter's jinchūriki transformation. Directly afterwards, Gaku and his comrades received a signal to retreat, leading him to inform Minato that they are pulling back for the moment.

Personality

As the eldest of his team, he thought of Minato as a younger brother.[1]

Appearance

Gaku is dressed in the usual Konohagakure flak jacket and has the distinctive Inuzuka's fang markings on his cheeks. He has swept-back brown hair with a beard of the same colour and black eyes.

Abilities

Gaku served as the short-range combat shinobi of his platoon.[1] As an Inuzuka, it is very likely that he uses his clan's assorted techniques alongside his large-breed ninken while in battle.

Trivia

  • "Gaku" can be written in several ways with several meanings in some cases:
    • "学" means "scholarship", "learning" or "knowledge".
