Kinoto (乙, Kinoto) is a member of Konohagakure's Anbu faction Root.

Background

Shortly after the Third Great Shinobi War, Kinoto served as a bodyguard to Danzō Shimura during a meeting with Orochimaru after the latter had been passed over for the position for Hokage. Later, he informed Danzō about Orochimaru's defection from Konoha. He later took part in an assassination attempt of Hiruzen Sarutobi on Danzō's orders, which was foiled by Kakashi informing Hiruzen of their plans beforehand.

Three years later, Danzō requested Kinoto and Kinoe to retrieve a Sharingan from Kakashi Hatake in order for the latter to replace his own right eye, which was slowly losing its light. However, their mission to retrieve Kakashi's Sharingan became a failure due to Kinoe used a decoy wooden eyeball of the Sharingan.

Appearance

Kinoto's face

Kinoto has spiky black hair and black eyes. His face is generally concealed behind an Anbu mask which features red patterns across the surface. He wears the typical attire of the Anbu along with a tantō strapped to his shoulder.

Abilities

As an Anbu, Kinoto is presumably a considerably strong shinobi. He was seen to be very stealthy, able to stay hidden and out of sight from an experienced shinobi like Kakashi. He also wields a sword which indicates him being skilled in kenjutsu. Considering that Danzō ordered him to place a cursed seal on Kinoe, it stands to reason that he is also skilled in juinjutsu.

Trivia

  • "乙" (Kinoto) is the second sign of the Chinese calendar.
