|Appears in||Anime only|
Himushi and the Nokizaru were hired by the Sugi Village to hunt out the Fourth Raikage and his men after they stole a scroll detailing their employer's hidden techniques. While on their tail, the Nokizaru unleashed a blinding light which dispersed microscopic Exploding Insects which the Kumogakure shinobi inhaled. After killing Nigai with this method, A escaped with his ill subordinate.
Tracking them down, Himushi spied on A and Tsunade and prepared a plan to retrieve the scroll by unleashing more exploding insects and offering the cure in return for it. The result of this plan is unknown as Himushi and his team fled when backup from Kumo arrived.
Himushi appears very devious and cunning, knowing the risks and benefits to his own techniques and tactics on how to use them effectively. He is also very cautious, opting to wait until the exploding insect had matured and then, once it had erupted, dispose of any survivors.
Himushi has shaggy, shoulder-length white hair, hark eyes and purple markings framing his face. He wears a red and black bandana and a kimono shirt: half of which has the same red and black pattern of the bandanna and the other half is solid red in colour. Along with this he wears a pair of black pant, sandals and a sash that resembles a monkey's tail.
Himushi is an insect user, effectively using them to spy on his targets and defeat them from within by turning their own chakra into fuel for his exploding insects.
- "Himushi" (蛾) literally means "moth".
