|ツキカケル Tsuki Kakeru|
|Movie||Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom|
He was king of the Land of the Moon until his friend Shabadaba betrayed him by hiring Three Wandering Ninja to assassinate him; the lower half of Kakeru's body was petrified, and his health deteriorated greatly. Shabadaba did so because Kakeru insisted on using country's funds and reducing taxes to help the less fortunate, which did not stand well with the greedy Shabadaba.
Sakura Haruno was able to keep him alive a little longer, and he used his last seconds to tell his son and grandson that from that moment on, they were the new king and prince.
- Tsuki (月) means moon. Kakeru (欠ける) means to wane.
