|Appears in||Anime only|
The Kurosuki Family (黒鋤ファミリー, Kurosuki Famirī) was a criminal gang that was formed by Raiga Kurosuki, one of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist. The newest and most eager member was Karashi. He was also the biggest coward of them all. When the clan got into a fight with the Konoha ninja who had been sent to save the village, all the members fought, except for Karashi, who ran away immediately when danger came.
According to Karashi, what Raiga did when he took over the control over the Katabami Kinzan village was to kick the evil people out and set the villagers free. However, what he did was force the villagers to work for them in a nearby goldmine. The gang ensured everyone followed Raiga's orders, and those who disobeyed were buried alive.
All members had gloves with retractable blades over the knuckles. With the blades out, the members were able to use the Black Tornado technique.
