The four Kazekage

The statues of the four previous Kazekage.

The Kazekage (風影, Literally meaning: Wind Shadow) are the leaders of Sunagakure. Feared and respected across the world, they are responsible for making Sunagakure a powerful and great village, despite its small size. However, being responsible for raising so many great shinobi seems to come at a heavy price, as all the Kazekage, including the current, so far have met untimely deaths at the hands of assassins. For this reason, the Kazekage lineage is sometimes considered cursed. Statues of all the former Kazekage are kept in the room where Sunagakure's council convenes, similar to the Hokage Monument.

Main article: Gaara Gaara (我愛羅, Gaara) is a shinobi of Sunagakure. Before he was born, Shukaku was sealed within him, resulting in his mother's death. Regarded as a monster by the village and with nobody to love him, Gaara came to despise the world and began relying only on his own strength, gaining the title Gaara of the Sand Waterfall (砂瀑の我愛羅, Sabaku no Gaara, English TV: Gaara of the Desert). After his defeat by Naruto Uzumaki and his unwavering dedication to his friends, Gaara begins emulating Naruto's method and changes Suna's opinions of him. He eventually becomes the village's Fifth Kazekage (五代目風影, Godaime Kazekage, Literally meaning: Fifth Wind Shadow), a position he maintains even after Shukaku is removed from his body by Akatsuki.


  • The colour of the Kazekage's garbs was originally depicted as blue in the anime, but was changed to the manga's green colour in Naruto: Shippūden episode 199.
  • In chapter #266, the Kazekage statues show the masked Kazekage as the First, and the bald Kazekage as the Second. However, the third databook, the masked Kazekage is shown as the Second, and the bald Kazekage, the First.[2]
