Team Info

The Kinkaku Force (金角部隊, Kinkaku Butai) was a special team of at least twenty highly skilled shinobi from Kumogakure during the time of the First Shinobi World War.

On one occasion, they tracked down Team Tobirama, Danzō Shimura, Torifu Akimichi and Kagami Uchiha, surrounding them on the battlefield. The Second Hokage ultimately sacrificed himself to allow his comrades to escape.[1]


  • Kinkaku (金角) means "Golden Horn". It is the name of a character from the famous story Journey to the West.
  • One of the strongest shinobi of Kumogakure was called Kinkaku, who also lived during the reign of the second Hokage. However, the exact relationship between that particular character and this group - be it him being a member or the team being named after him - is currently unknown.
