|Anime||Naruto Episode #216|
Like many minor villains in Part I, Suiko is overconfident about the power his shield provides, and believes nothing can breach its defenses. This presumption leads to his death at the hands of Gaara who manages to tear through it. Like all members in his team, Suiko is single-minded about his goals, using any method to achieve it.
Suiko was by far the largest of his group. A broadly built man, he wore a black coat over which was his armour which was designed with a silver tiger-like head breastplate and a pair of dark blue pauldrons. His eyes have small black pupils and has wavy brown hair with a small beard. He wears a type of chakra absorbing armour called Infinite Armour and carries a mace around with him as a weapon.
Ultimate Weapon Arc
He and his group abducted Matsuri, Gaara's student, to get access to Gaara's Shukaku powers to revive Seimei, Takumi Village's founder. He injured Rock Lee at his entering in their battle with Gaara. With his armour protecting him for the most part Suiko and Gaara, another defensive expert, were engaged in a stand-off as neither could harm the other until he was eventually overpowered and impaled by Gaara's Ultimately Hard Absolute Attack: Spear of Shukaku.
- His name, meaning "Water Tiger" comes from Byakko, the White Tiger of the West.
- He is the only member of his team that does not have a sword, using a mace instead.
