Hiruko (ヒルコ, Hiruko) was once a great shinobi, but upon his death, he became Sasori's favourite human puppet.[1]


He was said to have been a great shinobi while alive. He was powerful enough that Sasori chose to make a human puppet out of him.


  • "Hiruko" (蛭子) can be translated to "leech child".
  • Hiruko is a Japanese fisherman god. It can also be translated into "Ebisu".
  • In the manga, Hiruko was just a normal puppet, not a human one.[2]
  • His height given through a settei, is him when he's on all fours.
