Tools

(イオウ, ) is a ninja weapon inventor from Konoha. He and his assistant Shōseki help make weapons for the village.

Background

Most of his original weapons are shown either be impossible to carry or serve no purpose at all. It is assumed he was relocated to the outskirts of the village due to the random explosions which he claims are "challenges" during his inventing.

Personality

Iō has a very eccentric personality and has a great love for creating weapons without thinking of the consequences, even creating weapons that were either impossible to use because they served no purpose or were too 'over-the-top'. He has also shown great loyalty to his village, refusing to make or give his weapons to anyone else.

Appearance

Iō is a balding man with grey hair, a small moustache and goatee. He wears a pair of gloves with bandages around his arms, a high-collared jacket, black trousers, sandals and a blacksmith's apron with the village symbol on it.

Abilities

He is very knowledgeable in the art of creating ninja tools, able to create unorthodox yet dangerous weapons like Tsurukame, Dakō or Jidanda. Most of his inventions are however useless for combat.

Part II

Konoha History Arc

Neji Hyūga, Tenten, and Naruto Uzumaki go to the Konoha Tool Research Lab to retrieve more tools for the village. When checking up on their progress, they see that Iō and his assistant went down the research lab to work on Iō's newest weapon. Suddenly two ninja, Gameru and Kusune arrive to the research lab and demand new weapons from Iō. They both possessed two of his prototype weapons that Shōseki sold to them. Iō gave Tenten his newest weapon, Jidanda, which she used to defeat both the ninja. Iō took Jidanda back from Tenten after the ninja were defeated, saying more work needed to be done on the weapon. Three years later, Tenten and Neji Hyūga return to the research lab to retrieve more tools for the village after its destruction.
