Kin Tsuchi (キン・ツチ, Kin Tsuchi) was a kunoichi from Otogakure and a member of Team Dosu which took part in the Chūnin Exams under orders from Orochimaru to test Sasuke Uchiha's skills.

Appearance Edit

Kin had very long black hair, almost reaching down to the ground, tied by a violet ribbon right near the end, and black eyes. She wore a forehead protector, a pale green vest somewhat similar to a flak jacket, and snake patterned pants and scarf, much like her team-mates: Dosu Kinuta and Zaku Abumi.

Personality Edit

Like her team-mates, Kin appeared to be overconfident in her abilities. She had a strong dislike towards Sakura due to her apparent vanity for her hair and criticises her for focusing on her appearances rather than training, even going so far to call Sakura a female swine and boy-chaser in the manga. Like her team-mate Zaku, she loses focus on her opponent's tactics when overconfident and talking about her abilities. That is seen when she didn't recognise the Shadow Imitation Technique that Shikamaru was using on her while she was talking about her using her Shadow Senbon and Illusion Bell Needles. Kin also appeared to prefer to toy with her opponents by defeating them slowly and painfully as stated by her during her fight with Shikamaru in the preliminaries.

Abilities Edit

Kin was an accomplished senbon user, as seen in the Chūnin Exams. When she was ordered by Zaku Abumi to "finish Sakura", she reached into her back pocket and grasped senbon instead of a kunai or another weapon. She could also attempt to strike her opponent's vital spots with them in order to inflict more damage, as seen during her fight with Shikamaru. She normally used them in tandem with the Shadow Senbon technique to make it harder for her enemy to dodge. In the anime, she also demonstrated a much more powerful technique, Illusion Bell Needles, a genjutsu supported by her use of senbon. It is also notable that Kin is the only member of her team to not have a physical alteration.

Ep43kin

Kin fighting against Shikamaru.

After deciding to participate in the third stage preliminaries, Team Dosu reunited with Orochimaru, who was disguised as their Otogakure sensei. After watching several fights, she was matched against Shikamaru Nara. Shikamaru initially believed her trick to be a simple combination of needles with and without bells in order to make him less alert of the latter. Kin, however, followed through using her strings to ring a previously thrown bell, further confusing Shikamaru. Shikamaru countered, contracting his shadow and minimising it under the string attached to a needle she threw; she didn't notice that a string at that height would not be able to cast a shadow. Shikamaru then proceeded to use Shadow Imitation Technique to make both of them throw a shuriken simultaneously. Still bound to Shikamaru's shadow, she was forced to mimic his actions and bent backwards to avoid the shuriken but was too close to the stadium's wall and hit her head, knocking her out.

Konoha Crush Edit

During the Invasion of Konoha, Orochimaru summoned the First and Second Hokage, leading to the Third to use the Dead Demon Consuming Seal to seal the deceased Hokage.
