During the Third Shinobi World War Mahiru was partnered with Kakkō and Taiseki. He went out to surveillance the area in which Team Minato was travelling. He employed about twenty shadow clones against the team, only to have all of them destroyed by Kakashi's Chidori. However, in the end he was able to counter the Chidori and would have succeeded in killing Kakashi without the intervention of Minato Namikaze. He was then killed, but not before expressing regret for not running away when given the chance.
Mahiru was also described as a very prudent individual who greatly valued his life. In his inability to escape from Team Minato due to realising too late who the leader of the invading Konoha forces was, he lamented the fact that they were told to flee on sight of the Yellow Flash before the latter killed him.
Mahiru's hairstyle consists of two spiked ponytails, one sticking upwards from the top of his head, the other downwards from the back. He wore the standard Iwa shinobi uniform, complete with a flak jacket and a shirt having no right sleeve along with a dark indument hanging from his waist onto his right leg, reaching to his knees. He wore a simple forehead protector with a blue coloured cloth.
Mahiru is skilled enough to overpower a child prodigy Kakashi, and seems to have sufficient chakra to perform the Shadow Clone Technique, employing twenty clones. He was also skilled with Earth Release techniques.
