|Appears in||Anime only|
Heiji was a subordinate in Hanzō's regime and the right hand of Kandachi who was the right hand of Hanzō. At some point he was killed within the walls of Amegakure. Some time later, he was accidentally reincarnated by Kabuto Yakushi who was looking for Hanzō instead.
Heiji seemed to be relatively quiet man.
Heiji had purple eyes. He had a dark hat on his head and his lower face was mostly obscured by a helmet-like respirator, identical to Hanzō's. The upper portion of this mask bore the symbol of his village and was mirrored by four indentations on the part covering his mouth. He wore the costume consisted of a diving equipment — as typical loose of his village, accentuated by bandages wrapped around their wrists over the blouse and lower legs, a flak jacket with swirls in the chest-plate and standard shinobi sandals.
While little was seen of his abilities, Heiji was atleast competent enough to be an aide of his village leaders's righthand.
Heiji was capable of using tag with technique formula on it to create a smokescreen. It was effective in allowing other reincarnated shinobi to escape the battlefield, but he was not capable of escaping himself.
Shinobi World War Arc
During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kabuto deployed Heiji, who he saw as one of his weaker assets, in an attempt to unseal his other, stronger pawns. During a scuffle between Kabuto's weaker pawns and the Allied Shinobi Forces, Heiji created a smokescreen diversion so some of the reincarnated shinobi could escape. Afterwards, he was cornered by the Fourth Division and sealed.
- "Heiji" can refer to a Japanese era, peaceful times, military affairs, or an earthenware pot.
