The members of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen were the people who came from the [[Kirigakure|Bloody Mist's]] graduation exams with the greatest battle skills. However, the members also had a great lust for power, which led some of them to defect and become [[missing-nin]], one example is [[Zabuza Momochi]]. [[Kisame Hoshigaki]] became a member after killing [[Fuguki Suikazan]], who was revealed to be a traitor leaking information to the enemies, but Kisame later became the first of the seven to abandon Kiri after committing several unauthorised assassinations, and attempting to overthrow the government, then joining [[Akatsuki]] afterwards. Zabuza Momochi would later defect as well after a failed coup d'etat and assassination attempt on the [[Mizukage]]. Before leaving however, he encountered a boy named [[Haku]] with a unique [[Ice Release|kekkei genkai]] and decided to take him along, as well as the [[Demon Brothers]], [[Gōzu]] and [[Meizu]]. Since then, the total number of the group gradually decreased, as the swords one by one fell out of Kirigakure's possession. Eventually, Kirigakure was left with only one sword, and [[Chōjūrō]] became the only member of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist.

At some point [[Fuguki Suikazan]], [[Jinin Akebino]], [[Kushimaru Kuriarare]], [[Raiga Kurosuki]], [[Jūzō Biwa]] and two other members of the seven swordsmen corned [[Team Genma|three konoha gennin]]. The genin were later saved when [[Might Guy]] arrived and acted as a decoy while they escaped by using the [[Eight Gates Released Formation]]. The fate for most of the members afterwards is unknown, but at least Fuguki and Raiga survived the fight.<ref>Chapter 668, pages 12-13</ref>
   
According to a ninja from the Allied shinobi forces, the generation closest to the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]] was the strongest of the Seven Swordsman in the entire group's history, having been composed of the most powerful seven among the ninja that had ever been a part of this group; they are all dead by the time of the war for various reasons.
+
Years later, when Fuguki was caught leaking classified information outside of Kirigakure, his apprentice [[Kisame Hoshigaki]] killed him and took [[Samehada]] from his corpse, which resulted in him joining the group afterwards. The [[Hōzuki]] brothers, [[Mangetsu]] and [[Suigetsu]], both trained with the intention of joining the Seven Ninja Swordsmen together. Mangetsu did eventually join, and mastered use of all seven of the swords. However, he later died, and Suigetsu was captured by [[Orochimaru]]. At some point, Kisame committed several unauthorised assassinations and attempted to overthrow the government, which lead him to becoming a [[missing-nin]] and joining the [[Akatsuki]].

Suigetsu now shows an interest in collecting all seven swords, in order to restore the group to its original power and become its new leader.
+
[[Zabuza Momochi]] attempted a coup d'etat and to assassinate the [[Mizukage]] but failed, which lead to he and the [[Demon Brothers]] defecting from the village and taking his [[Kubikiribōchō]] with him. After being labeled as a missing-nin, [[hunter-nin]] were dispatched to find and kill him. In the anime, during one of his [[Anbu]] missions, Raiga encountered a [[Ranmaru|boy]] who he sympathised with and decided to leave the village, taking [[Kiba (swords)|Kiba]] with him. Through out the years, the numbers of swords in Kurigakure's possession decreased to the point that only [[Hiramekarei]] was left and passed onto [[Chōjūrō]], who served as the groups only active member.
   
In the anime, it hasn't been confirmed when or why [[Raiga Kurosuki]] left Kiri, but it was around the same time when he discovered a boy named [[Ranmaru]], who ended up having a similar relationship with Raiga to that of Zabuza and Haku. Ranmaru also had a special dōjutsu which Raiga used for his own purposes, furthering their similarity to Haku and Zabuza.

Following Suigetsu being freed, he began hunting down the swords to fulfill his dream of reforming the group and becoming its leader.

Following the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]] being announced, Kisame confronted the [[Eight-Tails]] jinchūriki and in the process, Samehada abandoned him for [[Killer B]]'s immense amount of chakra. Shortly after, Kisame committed suicide to protect Akatsuki's secrets.

At the start of the war, [[Kabuto Yakushi]] had Zabuza [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] alongside other famous shinobi to fight the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] on Akatsuki's behalf. When he and his group encountered the [[Third Division]], Zabuza used his [[Hiding in Mist Technique|signature technique]] to conceal his groups presence.

During the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], [[Kabuto Yakushi]] used the [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation]] technique to reincarnate the previous generation of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist to fight on behalf of [[Akatsuki]], the said generation being the most powerful in Kirigakure's history. Zabuza being part of the group that attacked the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]]' [[Third Division]], [[Gari]] and [[Pakura]] [[Summoning Technique|summoned]] the remaining six to the battlefield.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 522, page 15-17</ref> Mangetsu then summoned most of the swords with a scroll, and most of the swordsmen got an advantage against the Third Division, being covered by Zabuza's [[Hiding in Mist Technique]]. By the second day of war however, all members of the previous generation were eventually sealed.

The Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist (霧の忍刀七人衆, Kiri no Shinobigatana Shichinin Shū) is an organisation consisting of only the greatest blade wielding shinobi of their generation that Kirigakure can produce. There can only be seven members at a time — hence the name. The swords of the Seven Swordsmen are passed down from generation to generation.[1]

History Edit

Previous Shinobigatana Shichinin Shū

A previous generation of the swordsmen.

At some point Fuguki Suikazan, Jinin Akebino, Kushimaru Kuriarare, Raiga Kurosuki, Jūzō Biwa and two other members of the seven swordsmen corned three konoha gennin. The genin were later saved when Might Guy arrived and acted as a decoy while they escaped by using the Eight Gates Released Formation. The fate for most of the members afterwards is unknown, but at least Fuguki and Raiga survived the fight.[2]

Years later, when Fuguki was caught leaking classified information outside of Kirigakure, his apprentice Kisame Hoshigaki killed him and took Samehada from his corpse, which resulted in him joining the group afterwards. The Hōzuki brothers, Mangetsu and Suigetsu, both trained with the intention of joining the Seven Ninja Swordsmen together. Mangetsu did eventually join, and mastered use of all seven of the swords. However, he later died, and Suigetsu was captured by Orochimaru. At some point, Kisame committed several unauthorised assassinations and attempted to overthrow the government, which lead him to becoming a missing-nin and joining the Akatsuki.

Zabuza Momochi attempted a coup d'etat and to assassinate the Mizukage but failed, which lead to he and the Demon Brothers defecting from the village and taking his Kubikiribōchō with him. After being labeled as a missing-nin, hunter-nin were dispatched to find and kill him. In the anime, during one of his Anbu missions, Raiga encountered a boy who he sympathised with and decided to leave the village, taking Kiba with him. Through out the years, the numbers of swords in Kurigakure's possession decreased to the point that only Hiramekarei was left and passed onto Chōjūrō, who served as the groups only active member.

Kisame vs Suigetsu

Suigetsu fighting Kisame for ownership of Samehada.

Following Suigetsu being freed, he began hunting down the swords to fulfill his dream of reforming the group and becoming its leader. He collected the Kubikiribōchō from Zabuza's grave and joined Hebi, with the likely chance he would cross paths with Kisame and take Samehada. Following the Fourth Shinobi World War being announced, Kisame confronted the Eight-Tails jinchūriki and in the process, Samehada abandoned him for Killer B's immense amount of chakra. Shortly after, Kisame committed suicide to protect Akatsuki's secrets.

Ninja Swordsmen Revived

The strongest generation of swordsmen summoned.

At the start of the war, Kabuto Yakushi had Zabuza reincarnated alongside other famous shinobi to fight the Allied Shinobi Forces on Akatsuki's behalf. When he and his group encountered the Third Division, Zabuza used his signature technique to conceal his groups presence. Before the division could get the upper hand, Kabuto had Gari and Pakura summon the previous six swordsmen of the strongest generation.[3] Mangetsu then used his scroll to summon four swords to begin their groups attack. By the second day of war, all the reincarnated swordsmen had been sealed. Later with the release of the Impure World Reincarnation technique, the swordsmen souls returned to the afterlife.

Swords Edit

Sword scroll

The scroll that all seven swords can be sealed in.

  • Kubikiribōchō (首斬り包丁, Viz: Executioner's Blade, Literally meaning: Decapitating Carving Knife): A giant sword with a butcher-knife-like appearance, the wielder can use the semi-circle on the blade to decapitate an opponent's head, hence the name. The sword has an ability to regenerate using the iron absorbed from the blood of those it cuts down. It is also called a "Seversword" (断刀, Dantō).
  • Samehada (鮫肌, Literally meaning: Shark Skin): The most terrifying of the seven blades, it has the appearance of a giant knife covered in shark scales. It is a sentient, living weapon and has the ability to "eat" chakra. It is also called a "Greatsword" (大刀, Daitō).
  • Nuibari (縫い針, Literally meaning: Sewing Needle): A sword in the shape of a needle with a long thin wire that resembles thread attached to it, which can be used to pierce enemies and "sew" them together in human bundles. It is also called a "Longsword" (長刀, Chōtō).
  • Kabutowari (兜割, Literally meaning: Helmet Splitter): A sword consisting of a single sided axe and a hammer joined by a length of chain. Said to be capable of crushing any and all defences. It is also called a "Bluntsword" (鈍刀, Dontō).
  • Shibuki (飛沫, Literally meaning: Splash): A sword that has a scroll full of explosive tags incorporated into it, lined up behind the blade, combining swordsmanship and explosions. It is also called a "Blastsword" (爆刀, Bakutō).
  • Kiba (, Literally meaning: Fangs): Twin swords that are imbued with lightning which increases their cutting power. They are said to be the sharpest swords ever forged. They are also called "Thunderswords" (雷刀, Raitō).
  • Hiramekarei (ヒラメカレイ): A bandaged double-handled sword that is capable of storing and emitting the user's chakra which can then take on various forms. It is also called a "Twinsword" (双刀, Sōtō).

Known Members Edit

An earlier generation of the organisation consisted of Fuguki, Jinin, Jūzō, Raiga, Kushimaru and two other unidentified shinobi:

  • Hiramekarei's wielder: A shorter individual with moused-up hair who wore his forehead protector as a choker and a utility belt around his waist along with a flak jacket and a pinstriped shirt and pants. He carried the Twinsword strapped to his back horizontally.
  • Shibuki's wielder: A slender man who wore a pinstriped shirt and a cloth-mask that only showed his eyes.

Trivia Edit

  • It seems to be a tradition for the members and aspiring members of the Seven Swordsmen to have sharpened teeth.
  • All the known named members also have fruit-derived surnames, or if lacking a surname, their given name. This does not hold true for Raiga.
  • All of the reincarnated swordsmen have bandages around their necks.[4]
  • At least three of the members became missing-nin, while one was discovered to be a traitor, leaking confidential information to other villages.
  • Although Mangetsu was said to have mastered use of all the swords, other members of his generation wielded six of them, leaving Hiramekarei as the blade he likely primarily used.
  • Three members of the Seven Swordsmen were former Anbu members.
  • Three members of the Seven Swordsmen managed to fake their own deaths or regain life later on, by the means of an accomplice.
  • In the anime, Kushimaru and Jinpachi were known collectively as the "Heartless Pair" (非情コンビ, Hijō Konbi) due to their many acts of cruelty in their lifetime.[5]
