Typical of his brutish appearance, Kongō is violent and thuggish. He prefers to simply pound his opponents with sheer force rather than using strategy, and leered in a sadistic way when he approached Hikaru Tsuki with the intention of killing the child. However, he can be quite cowardly when he is completely dominated, as he was crawling away when Naruto Uzumaki sent him flying over the beach.
Kongō is a large and muscular man, with a very wide frame and thick limbs. He has a very bulbous nose, relatively small and beady eyes, and thick lips. His long hair was a wig, just like his comrades. He wore a white vest over a green shirt, a pair of gloves and a forehead protector with no village symbol on it. Overall, Kongō gives off the appearance of a brutish and violent man.
Kongō relies on his brute strength for hand-to-hand combat. With his overlarge fists, he can throw powerful punches that can send his opponents flying with great damage. He combines his strength with a sense-distorting powder used by his comrades to ensure his opponents cannot evade his strikes in time. He also has some endurance, as he took several of Rock Lee's more powerful strikes and was able to stand back up. However, with all his physical strength and endurance, Kongō is rather slow and lacks strategic skills.
Plot Overview Edit
He is first seen with Ishidate when they witnessed the bodyguards escape from the soldiers. He was then seen again attacking Naruto Uzumaki and managed to knock him out cold by punching his head through the sand. After that, he fought Rock Lee and defeated him easily. Kongō then went after Hikaru Tsuki and was shot by one of his toy arrows. He only laughs and takes the arrow off and snaps it. He then gets ready to kill Hikaru but immediately stops when he felt the surge of power from Naruto. Naruto releases his Nine-Tailed Fox chakra and connects multiple hits on Kongō. After that, Kongō was then lying on the shore. Naruto walks up to him and tries to finish it but is interrupted by Karenbana who uses her special genjutsu, but Naruto easily blows the technique away. Later, he is seen retreating with Karenbana and Ishidate after they successfully captured king Michiru Tsuki.
Later on, he was seen again. This time, he was trying to stop the team from going on in the castle. He encounters them later on in the castle and plans to fight them, but Rock Lee says that he'll be his opponent. He then receives a blow from Lee but it seems to not have an effect all. After that, Lee takes off his weights and makes connecting hits at Kongō with blinding speed. Next, Lee takes him down with a powerful blast from his nunchaku. But, that didn't take out Kongō and in return he throws around Lee and makes heavy, critical hits, which manages to knock out Lee. Somehow, Lee was able to recover from the assault and then proceeded with his attack. Lee then used the fifth gate to take out Kongō with connecting nunchaku hits and unreleased the Reverse Lotus to smash him to the ground breaking about three floors, killing him.
- Kongō (金剛) means "vajra" - a mythical substance that can cut any substance, but cannot be cut itself, translated as both "diamond" or "thunderbolt".
