To prevent Hiruzen from being reinstated as Hokage, Danzō gave Mizunoto and nine other Root members a mission to assassinate him. Disguised as a foreign shinobi, he fought the Anbu accompanying his target, who turned out to be a disguised Kakashi, resulting in the mission's failure.
Mizunoto would always listen to his superior, Danzō.
Mizunoto is a tall shinobi, with black hair tied in an elaborate top-knot. He regularly wears a typical Anbu cloak. His mask is unusual in that it has two colours in it, with dark teal, dot-shaped eyebrows, and red, sharp-toothed mouth.
As an Anbu, Mizunoto is a presumably a powerful shinobi. He wields a sword.
- "Mizunoto" (壬) is the tenth sign of the Chinese calendar.
- Mizunoto's name was only divulged in a Studio Pierrot Settei of Root members.
