Shibito Azuma (東シビト, Azuma Shibito) was a jōnin-level shinobi of Iwagakure.
During the Third Shinobi World War he led a battalion of Iwa shinobi against Konoha's. He almost broke through Konoha's defences, but was defeated when Minato Namikaze arrived on the battlefield.
Shibito seems to have a cruel side as he opted to have his comrades toy with the remaining Konoha-nin on the battlefield instead of killing them directly.
He had short black hair and wore the standard attire of an Iwagakure shinobi inclusive of flak jacket and a forehead protector which he wore like a bandanna.
- His family name, Azuma (東), means "east".
- He is the first, and so far the only Iwagakure ninja to have a known surname.
