Shinki (シンキ, Shinki) is a shinobi of Sunagakure's Kazekage clan and a member of Team Shinki.


Shinki is described as the calm and collected leader-like figure of his team.[1] Shinki is shown to be very prideful and proud of his heritage, telling his adoptive father their team won't tarnish his name and will achieve victory. He also is very confident in his team's abilities, not believing the teams from the other villages to be anything to worry about in the upcoming Chūnin Exams.[2] However, he's not above overrestimating his own capabilities, as seen when he was going to jump into the battle against Kinshiki and Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki, the foes capable of fighting multiple Kage-level shinobi. Although he seems to know his limits well enough to take orders from his adoptive father to stay out of fighting Kinshinki and Momoshiki.[3] Despite his young age, he has the seriousness of an adult to the point even his uncle is afraid of making him angry.[4]



Shinki's appearance.

Shinki has dark spiky hair, small eyebrows and green eyes. Just like Kankurō, Shinki sports face paint, which takes the shape of two red ヲ wo markings that are similar to designs on Gaara's Sand Gourd.

His outfit consists of a dark cloak made of Iron Sand which he wears over his Suna flak jacket, a brown full-body outfit, which covers his throat, complete with a dark blue Suna forehead protector and black calf-length shinobi sandals. He is also seen carrying his skeleton-like puppet alongside him.

In the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga, he doesn't wear a flak jacket, instead wearing a dark body suit with an asymmetrical armor plate on his chest, a long belt tied at the waist, and bandages wrapped around his wrists and ankles.


Shinki's Iron Sand

He is a powerful shinobi who excels in his team due to his observant eye.[1] Possessing extraordinary chakra, Team 10 was regarded as having no chance against him.[5] Shinki is capable of using the Magnet Release kekkei genkai, allowing him to control Iron Sand, which he conveniently carries around with himself and his puppet, shaped into a cloak. Using such ninjutsu, Shinki can create a single platform, connected to his cloak, which is capable of supporting him and his allies, allowing them to float while on it. He can use his Iron Sand to constrict opponents, and also in conjunction with his Puppet Technique.

Versus Momoshiki Arc

Main article: Boruto: Naruto the Movie Departing Suna by Thunder Train to participate in the Chūnin Exams at Konohagakure, Shinki expressed his belief that his team would achieve victory and would not sully his adoptive father's name. He exclaimed that the other teams would be no problem for them. Shinki entered the Chūnin Exams with his teammates. In the first round, he utilised his Iron Sand to support his teammates and himself to prevent them from falling into the pit. In the second round, Shinki managed to capture Metal Lee's team's flag, causing the latter to pound his fist on the floor in frustration.

Shinki Defeats Chocho

Shinki defeats Chōchō.

In the final round, he was matched against Chōchō Akimichi and defeated her using his Iron Sand. When Kinshiki and Momoshiki arrived on the arena and began their attack, Shinki tried to join the offensive against them, but was stopped by Gaara, who told him that it's not the kind of enemy he can take on and that they should focus on evacuating the civilians instead.
