Hanzaki (ハンザキ, Hanzaki) is the leader of the Fūma clan.
He was the one of the members who was not seduced by Orochimaru's power.
Hanzaki is a strong melee-based shinobi who fights with a zanbatō. In the English dub of the anime Hanzaki calls this tool "Demon wind ninja blade, Zanbato".
Land of Rice Fields Arc
He first encounters Jiraiya alongside unnamed members of the Fūma clan when a female member lured him to them. Jiraiya managed to defeat him and gain information from them. After the incident in Orochimaru's lair, Sasame and Kotohime were placed under his care by Jiraiya.
- Curiously, Hanzaki doesn't show knowledge of any technique, and his clansmen are all armed with bows.
