|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #351|
To prevent Hiruzen from being reinstated as Hokage, Danzō gave Kanoe and nine other Root members a mission to assassinate him. Disguised as a foreign shinobi, he fought the Anbu accompanying his target, who turned out to be a disguised Kakashi, resulting in the mission's failure.
Kanoe was loyal to Danzō and would follow any and all orders given to him. He is extremely focused in combat, as seen when he didn't show any emotions what-so-ever when he was told to assassinate Hiruzen.
Kanoe has short, almost shoulder-length brown hair. He wears a standard Anbu attire, an his mask has a beaked shape and purple markings.
- "Kanoe" (庚) is the seventh sign of the Chinese calendar.
- Kanoe's name was only divulged in a Studio Pierrot Settei of Root members.
