Shura (修羅, Shura) was the acting leader of the criminal group Shinobazu.
Shura is a very greedy and cruel man. He would even beat an child if it meant he'd get what he wanted.
Shura's weapon of choice was an umbrella, which he was rather adept in using it. This umbrella has many hidden modifications, it could fire multiple senbon, shoot intense flames like a flamethrower, shoot metal wires to immobilise the opponents, and had a hidden sword that can be drawn to give a final blow. Shura calls his technique, assassination techniques instead of ninja techniques. He could also use it to glide in midair and after Naruto defeats Shura, he uses his umbrella to land on the ground.
Shura kidnaps Akio. Naruto and the others go to Shinobazu's base to free him. Shura beats Akio demanding to know where Gantetsu hid the stolen treasure. Todoroki charges in and Gantetsu gets captured. The building burns and Todoroki panics, but overcomes his fears to help Gantetsu and his brother escape. Naruto fights Shura and defeats him with Rasengan sending him plummeting to his death in the forests below.
- "Shura" means "carnage".
- Shura's use of an umbrella in combat is similar to Amegakure's use of the tool.
