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.

Some time after the [[Third Shinobi World War]], the Seven Swordsmen of the time ([[Fuguki Suikazan]], [[Jinin Akebino]], [[Kushimaru Kuriarare]], [[Raiga Kurosuki]], [[Jūzō Biwa]], and two others) cornered a [[Team Chōza|Konoha team]]. The team was rescued by [[Might Duy]], who fought all seven using the [[Eight Gates Released Formation]].<ref>Chapter 668, pages 12-13</ref> The fate for most of the members afterwards is unknown.
   
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.
+
The group's make-up would change over the years: [[Mangetsu Hōzuki]] joined and mastered all seven swords; Fuguki was killed and replaced by [[Kisame Hoshigaki]]. But as Kiri descended into the years of the "[[Bloody Mist]]", its members started dying as in the case of Mangetsu, or becoming [[missing-nin]] and taking their swords with them as in the cases of Kisame, [[Zabuza Momochi]], and (in the anime) Raiga. By the time of the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], only [[Hiramekarei]] remained in Kiri's possession, wielded by [[Chōjūrō]].
   
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, rather than one. However, he later died, and Suigetsu was captured by [[Orochimaru]]. 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.

The "strongest" generation of the Seven Swordsmen is [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] to fight for [[Akatsuki]] during the Fourth Shinobi World War.<ref>Chapter 522, page 15-17</ref> Five of the swordsmen are reunited with their former swords, which they use against the [[Third Division]]. Although the Third Division suffers numerous casualties, they are able to seal all of the Seven Swordsmen by the second day of war. They are later released from the Impure World Reincarnation and their souls return to the [[Pure Land]].
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.

=== Shinobi World War Arc ===
 
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 Swordsmen of the Mist

A previous generation of the swordsmen.

Some time after the Third Shinobi World War, the Seven Swordsmen of the time (Fuguki Suikazan, Jinin Akebino, Kushimaru Kuriarare, Raiga Kurosuki, Jūzō Biwa, and two others) cornered a Konoha team. The team was rescued by Might Duy, who fought all seven using the Eight Gates Released Formation.[2] The fate for most of the members afterwards is unknown.

The group's make-up would change over the years: Mangetsu Hōzuki joined and mastered all seven swords; Fuguki was killed and replaced by Kisame Hoshigaki. But as Kiri descended into the years of the "Bloody Mist", its members started dying — as in the case of Mangetsu, or becoming missing-nin and taking their swords with them — as in the cases of Kisame, Zabuza Momochi, and (in the anime) Raiga. By the time of the Fourth Shinobi World War, only Hiramekarei remained in Kiri's possession, wielded by Chōjūrō.

Swordsmen Summoned

The strongest generation of swordsmen reincarnated.

The "strongest" generation of the Seven Swordsmen is reincarnated to fight for Akatsuki during the Fourth Shinobi World War.[3] Five of the swordsmen are reunited with their former swords, which they use against the Third Division. Although the Third Division suffers numerous casualties, they are able to seal all of the Seven Swordsmen by the second day of war. They are later released from the Impure World Reincarnation and their souls return to the Pure Land.

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 (牙, 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.

  • 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.
